Who We Were...
Two awkward teenagers - the loner and the nerd, trying to find our place in the world. Paired in wood shop, we knew nothing of each other, except that we wanted to know everything. Then one life altering moment changed it all and we were left with shattered dreams and broken hearts.
Who We Are...
Two grown men - braver and smarter than we used to be, trying to heal the damage from that irrevocable moment. Even though the past was behind us, dead and buried long ago, we found it impossible to move on without ripping open the scars of our deep wounds.
With twelve years of unanswered questions fueling our desperate need for the truth, we must figure out if who we were will destroy who we are.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream. Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.

Title: Don't Let Me Be Yours
Authors: Dominique Laura & Kimberly Reese
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 24, 2018



Blurb

ESPERANZA ‘PERRIE’ AYALA
I’m a force to be reckoned with.
I’ve worked my way to get to where I’m at. Life was good, but then I fell for him.
He’s my best friend’s soon-to-be husband. There’s no ring, but there will be.
She’s everything I’m not. He’s everything my body needs, what it craves.
We didn’t cheat. No. We had one night, after their umpteenth breakup.
We had fun, and when they got back together, it was like it never happened.
But it did, and I need more. But more isn’t possible, so I’ll settle for his friendship—for now.

LAWRENCE STERLING MONTGOMERY III
I’m a lucky bastard who’s always been confident in where my life will lead.
Take over one of the most influential West Coast families. Marry the right girl.
But my plans are shaken when the wrong girl stirs up forbidden feelings.
We match in all the ways that should count.
I want her, but I can’t have her—won’t let myself have her.
We had our fun, but I’ve made a mistake.
I’m just not sure if the mistake was being with her in the first place or letting her go.


Author Note: contains cheating, a heroine with a smart mouth, and a sexy AF alpha asshole.

Reputation by Dr. Rebecca Sharp


Title: Reputation
Author: Dr. Rebecca Sharp
Genre: Enemies to Lovers/Rockstar Romance
Release Date: August 13, 2018
“I highly recommend this Rockstar Romance with the most delish slow burn that will have your heart in knots, flipping those pages, begging for a happy ending!” ~ Hot KU Romance-Dani
Completely and utterly BLOWN AWAY! This is my first novel by Rebecca Sharp and I am speechless! The story that she created is one of pain but also one of absolute beauty!” ~ Amazon Review (palegarreta)
Small-town girl. America’s Sweetheart. 
The biggest popstar in the world
It began with one guy and then the next. 
Until my reputation preceeded me.
Yes, I dated them - all of them. 
Yes, I also broke up with them. All of them.
Was it too much? The world said yes. Too many, too quickly. 
And my star began to flicker.
The world knew nothing about my life and yet, their judgement weighed on me like stone.
My reputation was falling faster than a shooting star and the only way to save it was with the boy who never wanted me.
Zach Parker was a singer, songwriter, and sexy as sin. 
To him, I was just the neighbor’s little sister. 
A pest that had grown into a famous annoyance.
Zach Parker wanted nothing to do with me. 
But he could be tempted - with a stepping stone to fame, that is.
The plan was simple: Childhood Sweethearts Fall in Love on US Tour.
The plan was to let them see what they wanted to see: our ‘romance’ blossom right in front of their eyes.
A romance that Zach had made painfully clear to me years ago would never exist.
I’m told that it was the only thing that could repair my image.
So, every night I’ll stand on that stage and give Zach my heart piece by piece, note by note.
We’ll give them a show they’ll never forget - and a love story that I may not survive.
Because who cares that in order to put my reputation back together, I’ll have to tear my heart apart?

Elaine's Review

This is the first book by this author that I have read, so I took my time to read every page . It took me two days to read it not because it wasn't good because it was excellent, I had to put it down because I cried through the teenage years!
Will Zach and Blake be together in the end or will Blake's reputation be ruined? 
I highly recommend this book!

Author Bio


L.B. Dunbar loves the sweeter things in life: cookies, Coca-Cola, and romance. Her reading journey began with a deep love of fairy tales, medieval knights, Regency debauchery, and alpha males. She loves a deep belly laugh and a strong hug. Occasionally, she has the energy of a Jack Russell terrier. Accused—yes, that’s the correct word—of having an overactive imagination, to her benefit, such an imagination works well. Author of over two dozen novels, she’s created sweet, small town worlds; rock star mayhem; MMA chaos; sexy rom-coms for the over 40; and intrigue on an island of redemption. In addition, she is earning a title as the “myth and legend lady” for her modernizations of mythology as elda lore. Her other duties in life include mother to four children and wife to the one and only.
