Title: Sheer

Author: Sarah Robinson

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Sheer:

The long-awaited conclusion to the series that brought you NUDES (“passionate, emotional, and uplifting!” – #1 NY Times Bestseller Lauren Blakely) and BARE (“heartfelt and sexy!” – USA Today Bestselling Author Kate Meader), a young singer with stars in her eyes falls for a composer whose sordid background might strip them bare.

Grant Mercer is on the run from his secrets…

This was supposed to be an easy assignment—travel halfway across the globe and compose the musical score for an upcoming Hollywood movie by one of the biggest production companies in Los Angeles. One and done like dozens of times before. I wasn’t supposed to have my entire life crumble around me the moment my plane took off. I wasn’t supposed to meet her.

Intriguing and covered in ink, Simone enters my life like a storm, leaving only heartbreak in her wake. I should keep my distance. Hell, she should keep hers. Instead, we did the exact opposite.

Simone Reynolds is mending a broken heart…

Just months after finaling in one of television’s most watched singing competitions, I should be riding the high of my life. I should be celebrating starring in a musical film predicted to rock the box office. It’s hard to bask in my success when my family is suffering a loss we never saw coming. And then there’s Grant—brooding and rugged and an absolute pain in my ass as he messes with my movie.

He’s as broken as I am, but the perfect harmony is only a leap of faith away.

 

Let’s talk. I found Ms. Robinson by chance with her novel, Not a Hero and I fell in love with her. She writes emotional, heartwarming stories with characters that I can relate to. I know, most reviewers say that but with this series centering around Hollywood, these sisters could be you and I. They love, lose, lust, cry and bleed just like us. It is just a bonus what they do for a living.

Simone was a trip at times. Other times, my heart broke a little bit for her. Always taking care of everyone and everything but never herself, I could identify more with her than Aria or Teagan. When she challenged to finally take care of herself first, I cheered. Grant was the perfect partner for her. Despite the requisite non-communication about his secret, he was always challenging her in her personal life. That’s what makes this book and for that matter, Ms. Robinson’s books in general. Her heroines are fierce, smart and don’t need a man to complete them in any sense of the world. I just hated that Simone had to go through something near the end of the book. What a wench…

Grant is one that characters that I fell in love with from the start. He, being a Kiwi (sigh), I half pictured him as the baby between Chris Hemsworth and Karl Urban. I love/lust after Karl Urban but I digress. I just wish that he had been honest with Simone from the beginning. He had plenty of opportunities but since he is a male…. One enduring quality about him is that challenged Simone but she challenged him, too. The leotard and the silk work. OMG, I was howling.

This series is about family and the importance of it. Ms. Robinson wrote this book and the rest of the series with a mirror to our faces. Again, no matter what your profession is or how much money you have, to all boils down to the family. Ms. Robinson gets that and it shows in her writing. Teagan still cusses like a sailor and Aria is still the mother figure. I loved how Ms. Robinson brought them in the be there for Simone but they never pushed her. If I had one thing to say…I missed Reid.

If you read only one series this year, picked up this one, Exposed: Nudes, Bare and Sheer. It shows the power of love and family are the most important things to have. You will not be sorry.

***the epilogue is EPIC***

Sorry for the shortness but it’s hard to talk about this book without some spoilers. 😛

Happy Book Birthday & #Review of You Promised Me Forever (Forever Yours #1) by Monica Murphy! #cuddlewithtuttle #series @MsMonicaMurphy @msmonicamurphy @monicamurphyauthor

You Promised Me Forever by Monica Murphy
Series: Forever Yours Book 1
Publication Date: August 29, 2018
Genre: New Adult Romance

You Promised Me Forever AMAZON.jpg

SYNOPSIS: I’ve got it all, they say. I’m the starting quarterback for the best NFL team in the league. I’m rich. I’m famous. I can have any woman I want, any time I want.

Yeah, I’ve got everything—except for the one who got away. How do you move on from loving the same girl since you were in the seventh grade? She promised me forever until forever got too hard and at nineteen, she dumped me.

By text message.

Now she’s walked back into my life. Just as beautiful. Just as sweet. Just as smart. More grown up and incredibly sexy…

We’re older now. Supposedly wiser. This time, I’m going to fight for what I want, no matter how hard it gets.

This time, I’m going to make her mine.

Forever.

Ever had one of “those” couples that you just get enough of?  Ever read a book or two about a couple and then they get the long-awaited HEA and were satisfied?  Felt like the author did justice to the couple and felt like nothing else could be written about the couple?  Amanda and Jordan are that couple for me.  Sure, I got to know them in high school (shocker) but they are one of my top 5 couples in romance-land.

via GIPHY

But of course, Ms. Murphy decided that she needed to break them apart and put us readers in hell!  Yes, hell.  How could she do that to us?  We were happy.  Mandy and Tuttle were happy.  End of story.  But, then she promised us that everything was going to be okay and that we needed to trust her.  I trusted her.  But I was still in denial that she broke them up.  Then I read the book.

via GIPHY

This is one of those books that was supposed to make you cry but I didn’t cry.  I laughed, swooned, said “Oh My” a bunch of times, and was basically enchanted by the words that were flying off the page.  The sexual buildup is brilliant, too.  Since this is the reunited lovers’ trope, these two knew what they wanted from each other and took it.  I loved that about the “older” Mandy and Tuttle.  They didn’t mess around and I loved it when Ronnie told them both to stop living in the past, live in the future.  Bravo!

A couple of other things that make this book so special is that we do get a glimpse of another couple in the book.  Plus, we also get how much they have grown as individuals.  Mandy still has trust issues and Tuttle with abandonment.  Mandy is the one person in his life that is pure, honest and loves him no matter what.  It just took a break up to prove that again.  Also, Ms. Murphy wrote each chapter from either Mandy or Tuttle’s POV.  I really like that now.  I get to know what is going on.

This is a New Adult book…another shocker but I trust Ms. Murphy.  Her characters have come alive for me again.  I will miss Mandy and Tuttle but I’m hoping for a glimpse in their lives once again.

*You don’t need to read the other books in the series to enjoy this one but seriously?  Why wouldn’t you not?*

Excerpt:

Jordan

Of course, I’m not going to shake Amanda’s hand.

Instead I grab hold of it, that unmistakable jolt of electricity sparking when our skin connects, just like every other time we’ve touched. I pull her to me and wrap her up in my arms because I can. I’m the one who offered up the tickets so I could…what? Show off? Let her know exactly how great my life is?

I can’t lie. My life is pretty damn great. I have everything I could ever want—except for one thing.

“Hi Jordan,” she breathes against my neck, and I swear she melts into me a little. Like she can’t help herself. Like we somehow still fit together even after all these years.

Either she got smaller or I grew bigger since the last time I touched her, and I’m guessing it’s the latter. She smells familiar, yet different. Better. I recognize the scent of her shampoo, but nothing else. Her hair is longer. Thick. Dark and wavy, up in a ponytail and a little disheveled, like she’s had a long day. Her body is curvier, something teenaged Amanda would’ve never believed could happen. She still has those sexy long legs, though.

Finally, she pulls away from me, her lips curled, her eyes sparkling, nervousness written all over her face, and I watch her carefully in return, my expression as neutral as I can make it. Honestly, I’m still a little pissed over that garbage game we just played, and I’m tense like I usually am after. Her understanding gaze meets mine and I know she knows what I’m feeling. We’ve always been in tune with each other…

She’s my Mandy, all grown up. But not my Mandy anymore.

Cover Design: Deranged Doctor Design
Release Date: December 4, 2018
Blurb
Every mission has a price. He never meant for her to pay it.
Aiden Teague had never left a fallen comrade behind, not during his years in the Special Forces nor afterwards as part of Linear Tactical. But he’s forced to do so in an
undercover mission gone wrong, leaving a woman trapped in a human trafficking ring. 
Violet Collingwood learned in the most brutal way possible that no one is promised a happy ending. She knows Aiden blames himself, at least in part, for what happened to her at the hands of the traffickers, but she refuses to let her abduction define the rest of her life.
She won’t be a victim again.  And she’s going after what she wants: Aiden.
Watching Violet transform herself into a fierce warrior is the sexiest thing Aiden has ever seen. The honorable plan would be to stay away from her—let her heal and grow
without the shadow of his mistakes clouding her progress—even though every instinct tells him to claim her for his own. 
But when they discover the danger they thought they’d left behind is closer than ever, they’ll have to confront their fears and fight side-by-side in order to survive.
