Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 5, 2022
BLURB

USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin delivers a swoony, single dad romance about a college football player and the fake girlfriend he knows he should resist. Football is one hundred percent the focus of my life—until a squawking toddler, with a temper to rival my own, lands in my lap and flips my life upside down. I’ll never be Dad of the Year. Anyone will tell you that. Except maybe Sienna, my sister’s former roommate, who somehow manages to make my broody ass laugh and sees something in me no one else does. When Sienna offers to let me and my little princess move in with her, I’m not sure if it’s to help or because she wants revenge on my teammate and long-time rival, who broke her heart. Either way, I’m game. Because I need to get my ex off my back, and Sienna doesn’t mind pretending to be my girlfriend. Only neither of us is ready for the sparks that fly between us or the consequences when they do.  What you can expect:– sexy single dad– fake dating– sports romance– slow burn but steamy– opposites attract– college football– small town

Release Blitz: ‘The Devil You Know’ by Elizabeth O’Roark

The Devil You Know by Elizabeth O’Roark is now live!

There’s a devil on my shoulder, and every Monday morning she announces herself. She’s this delicious flame in my chest, a flurry of whispered suggestions in my ear. Suggestions I ignore…because every single one of them is about Ben Tate.

Ben—Stealer of Clients, Evicter of Homeless Women, Nemesis. Sitting across from me every damn Monday with his lovely, smug smile and his too-perfect teeth, the living symbol of everything I hate.

It’s been my policy to avoid him, but when a case comes into the firm—one that could change his career and mine—I make an exception. It means weekends and evenings by his side. It means enduring his smirk and his smart mouth and never taking the bait.

Until the night Ben says “Beg”…and that devil on my shoulder decides to make a few demands of her own.

Author Interview: ‘The Mess in Her Womb’ by Dr. Chhavi Gandhi Juneja

About the Book:

Pranay Ahuja and Drishti Kapoor are quintessential young, happily married couple in their thirties in the Garden city of Bangalore. Their seemingly smooth ride through life is jolted by a hurricane when Drishti learns about her issues of infertility. With constant failures, miscarriages, and continuous In-vitro fertilization procedures, Drishti spirals into depression. The chase for the baby leads to a strained relationship with her parents, finding solidarity in the people with the same circumstances, and resentment towards people with pregnancy announcements. Understanding her deteriorating mental health and initial denial of the treatment, she diverts her chase from the baby towards mental peace.

This is the story of a woman who has everything everyone else wishes for, a loving husband, an extremely supportive set of parents, a blooming career, and financial security. In order to pursue what she can’t have, she risked everything she had. While drowning in the sea of sorrows, she finds solace in her best friend Naina, who like her, is trying to be pregnant through IVF, Mrs. Seema, a successful business owner and her next-door neighbor, and her boss and colleagues at her workplace.

In this contemporary fiction of pain, hurt, rage, disappointment, loss, love, and hope, follow Drishti and Pranay in their mission to find their purpose, rekindle the lost love in their relationship, and build the world they have longed for.

Author Interview:

1: Tell us a little about yourself and what got you in to writing?

I am Dr Chhavi Gandhi Juneja, and I am a doctor by profession and an author by passion. I belong to a small town in North India and currently have a blissful life with my Software Engineer husband in Bangalore (South India). A few months back, after serving for two years in the pandemic, I decided to chase what I have always wanted to do: write a book that creates a positive impact in people’s lives.

2: Do you have a favourite time and place where you write?

My favourite time is always in the morning and I have a corner of my couch with a table that gets me the best ideas.

3: Where do your ideas come from?

My ideas are inspired by real people and their emotions. I always try to make a story quite relatable.

4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?

I form an initial framework but I am quite flexible. In case the initial plotline isn’t compliant with the storyline ahead or vice versa, I modify it slightly while trying to keep the essence of the story.

5: What genre are your books and what drew you to that genre?

I mainly write contemporary fiction, women’s fiction, and medical fiction. Since I am a doctor and I like to make my story as close to reality as possible, these genres are where I can thrive.

6: What dream cast would you like to see playing the characters in your latest book?

Hollywood- Jennifer Lawrence and Sebastian Stan

Bollywood- Sanya Malhotra and Vicky Kaushal

7: Do you read much and if so who are your favourite authors?

I read a lot. My favourite authors are Cecelia Ahern, Robin Cook, Elizabeth Gilbert and J.K.Rowling.

8: What book/s are you reading at present?

I am reading 1984 by George Orwell which I am going to discuss in the book club called as “Elegance Book Club” and I am very excited!

9: What is your favourite book and why?

My favourite book shall always remain Pride and Prejudice because of Jane Austen, a feminist of her times, and the Harry Potter series because my loneliness of teen age was absolutely vanished because of that book.

10: What advice would you give for someone thinking about becoming a writer?

Finish that book, get it edited well, and market it even more. There is no way your art doesn’t deserve any credits, you just have to work hard.

11: What are the best Social Media Sites for people to find out about you and your work?

The misconstrued decisions against the restoration of mental health and the complete obscurity regarding the importance of it, she took some time out to pen down her experiences with two stigmas ruling our society: Infertility and Mental Health.

Release Blitz: ‘Gravitate’ by K E Osborn

Gravitate by K E Osborn is now live!

I’m not a decent guy. 
I don’t do commitment. 
Women know the score before they land in my bed. 
 
But there is something about this feisty tattoo artist. She makes my blood boil. But with that pure, unadulterated rage comes an ache deep inside I simply can’t ignore. 
I despise her. 
I shouldn’t want her. 
The problem is–every part of me does. 
And it’s a complication I can no longer ignore. 
 
With threats against the club from our persistent rivals, it’s becoming clear we can’t be sure who to trust.  
As the saying goes… keep your friends close and your enemies closer. 
But without knowing, I’ve invited mine right in, and I’m falling for her hard. 
And when we hit the ground, I know it’s gonna hurt!

Release Blitz: ‘Groomed to Perfection’ by Samantha Chase

 Groomed to Perfection by Samantha Chase is now live!

In just one night, she stole his jacket…and his heart.

Shy baker Emilie Michels never thought she’d meet her Prince Charming. Especially not at an event she’s working at. But when a handsome stranger finds her hiding in a corner and strikes up a conversation, she can’t help but be drawn in. Unfortunately, duty calls and she’s forced to flee, leaving the man of her dreams behind. All she has to remember that night is his first name and the suit jacket he gave her to stay warm.

Family has always come first for the Vandergrifts. It doesn’t matter what Cooper might want out of his life, his parents have had a plan for him since the day he was born. His mother even has his wedding all planned out, despite the fact that there’s no bride in the picture. But when Cooper walks into the Meet Me at the Altar offices for a cake tasting and finds himself face to face with the woman he met at a party all those months ago, he thinks it might be time to finally have a say in his love life.

Cooper had resigned himself to a life that would be all about family obligations, but just a few hours with Emilie have him convinced that maybe he could be something else. It’s just a matter of deciding whose happiness matters more: his family’s or his own.
