Blog Tour with Review: Deal Takers by Laura Lee

Today we have the blog tour for Laura Lee’s DEAL TAKERS! Check out the blog tour and be sure to grab your copy today!


Author: Laura Lee

Genre: Contemporary Romance

When he takes charge, I’ve been known to do a lot of stupid shit, despite the fact that I have a genius IQ.
Case in point: How I met the woman of my dreams.
Now, I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I don’t regret that moment of idiocy one bit. It may have been one of the most embarrassing moments of my life, but you know what they say about first impressions, right?
Well, I can guarantee that I made quite the impression that evening. (Don't worry; I’ll tell you all the gory details later.) 

Most days, she acts like she hates me—probably because I behave like an ass— but we both know the truth: Rainey O’Neil wants me just as much as I want her—she just doesn’t want to admit it. Good thing I’ve never been one to back down from a challenge.
 *Deal Takers is the second installment in the Dealing with Love world but can be read as a standalone.

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! I read it in a day! I loved it so much I bought the first one before I had even finished it. It is HILARIOUS!!! I was laughing out loud getting weird looks because I would just bust into a fit of giggles while reading it. I never thought I would enjoy reading a full two pages just on boobs before but I was DYING from the wit and comebacks! I couldn't put it down and had a ride of emotions with Rainey and Brody. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a cute, funny quick read that will lift your emotions and tear into them at the same time.

Laura's passion has always been storytelling. She spent most of her life with her nose in a book thinking of alternate endings or continuations to the story. She won her first writing contest at the ripe old age of nine, earning a trip to the state capital to showcase her manuscript. Thankfully for her, those early works will never see the light of day again! Laura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her wonderful husband, two beautiful children, and three of the most poorly behaved cats in existence. She likes her fruit smoothies filled with rum, her cupboards stocked with Cadbury's chocolate, and her music turned up loud. When she's not writing or watching HGTV, she's reading anything she can get her hands on. She's a sucker for spicy romances, especially those involving vampires, bad boys, or cowboys!

BOOK SALE: Heart of the Fae by Emma Hamm

Title: Heart of the Fae

Author: Emma Hamm

Series: The Otherworld, #1

Genre: Fantasy Romance/ Retelling

Recommended Age: New Adult, 16+

Cover Design: Nataša Ilinčić

Release Date: November 26, 2017

Today, I am honored to help author Emma Hamm try and hit USA Today with her book Heart of the Fae. She has set this AMAZING sale to last until August 15. Kindle books and Nook books are just $0.99 this week ONLY!

Beauty and the Beast meets Irish Mythology in this sweeping retelling of the beloved fairytale.... 

Once upon a time… 

A plague sweeps across the emerald hills of Uí Néill, leaving a young midwife’s father with months to live. To save her people, Sorcha makes a deal with a dangerous Fae. She must travel across the sea, through merrow and kelpie lands, to find a forgotten king on a crumbling throne. 

Born king of the Seelie Fae, Eamonn fought battles unnumbered to uphold honor, duty, and freedom… until his twin brother sank a blade between his shoulders. Crystals grew from the wound, splitting open skin and bone. His people banished him to a cursed isle for his disfigurement, now king of criminals and fools. 

With the help of brownies, pixies, and will-o’-the-wisps, Sorcha battles to break through his crystalline shell and persuade him to take back his stolen throne.

This determined beauty could come dangerously close to stealing his beastly heart.

Emma Hamm grew up in a small town surrounded by trees and animals. She writes strong, confident, powerful women who aren't afraid to grow and make mistakes. Her books will always be a little bit feminist, and are geared towards empowering both men and women to be comfortable in their own skin.

Between Sea and Stars by Chantal Gadoury

Title: Between Sea and Stars

Series: The Lena Series

Author: Chantal Gadoury

Publisher: The Parliament House

Genre: Fantasy, Retellings

Age Recommendation: Young Adult

Release Date: June 19, 2018

A Legend,
A Magical Shell
A Girl Who Dreamed Of Something More...

Lena, a Merrow girl, lives in the Skagerrak sea with her father, Carrick and her brother, Javelin who tells her of the legend of the Merrow Queen murdered by her human lover when greed takes over. But what's worth spilling the queen's blood? Gifted from Poseidon, himself, a magic shell gives any human the ability to control both land and sea.

When Javelin is called to join a clan of Merrow soldiers bent on protecting their waters from human invasion, Lena resists Merrow law and ventures to the shore with no choice but to swim to land.

With newfound legs, Lena is whisked away on a new adventure with new friends and new trouble. Everyone seems to want something from her as intrigue lurks around every corner.

Trying her best to hide who she is and remain safe from the dangers of the human world, will Lena finally find where she belongs, or will she be swept into a strong and stormy current by lust, greed, and jealousy?

Where to start on my feelings for this book....

I truly enjoyed reading this book. It was my own under the sea adventure. I loved that the premise was taken from the original Hans Christian Andersen version of Little Mermaid where mermaids turn to sea foam when they die. Although there were many detours from the original Danish story, I loved how Gadoury made it her own. 

This book spoke to me on so many levels. The writing was fantastic. I felt every part of Lena's journey. I cried, I laughed, I was giddy with excitement, and in awe throughout this book. It was a perfect set up for the next book in the series. It was world building without being overly wordy and descriptive.

There were so many aspects that were almost subliminal messages. From the thinking that humans are all the same to the having to act like a proper lady, the messages in this book should be shouted far and wide. 

"The best shells are found in the shallows," Lena advised, and he nodded.
"Alas, we'd sink quickly if we waded into the ocean, fully dressed. And good society demands that neither one of us part from our clothing or shoes. I, for one, should never see the delicate areas of your ankles."
Lena wrinkled her nose. "That's absurd," she blurted out.
Soren laughed. "It's civilized," he corrected her, "which I suppose is a word often synonymous with absurd. Even so."
 As adorable as this passage is, it also shows how absurd society can be and Gadoury does a great job of showcasing that. As well as showing that just because you have been told one thing doesn't make it true. For instance, in the book the Merrows believe humans to be evil. However, Lena believes that just as all Merrows are different, so must be all humans. There are good and bad within ever species.

I truly cannot wait to see where this story goes in the next book.
