Can't Let Go Cover Reveal




 RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 28, 2014


SYNOPSIS:

Dex is many things, a college senior, the bassist for The Invisibles, a son, a friend, everything but a boyfriend. Everybody knows him as the shallow guy who’s up for a good time anytime. People rarely take the time to see the loyal guy lying just beneath the happy-go-lucky fa├žade.

There are parts of Dex’s life he keeps hidden. Ones he believes no one would understand. Since he gave up on the idea of a dream girl long ago, he thinks he’s finally found the perfect balance of connection without commitment with Sam.

Chrissy used to know everything about Dex. When he left four years ago for college, she was left behind. Four years later, with nowhere else to turn, Chrissy calls the one person she’s always counted on, Dex. One glance at the sad eyes he’s tried to forget and Dex knows it’s out of his control.

With Chrissy's return, lines begin to cross from friendship to something more, but will Dex's secret force them apart forever?

(Can't Let Go is the fourth novel in the Invisibles Series)

Carrie's Review: I absolutely loved this book! Two words: Mal Ericson. He was superbly lovable again in this book, even having a smaller role. I adore Lena and Jimmy, both apart and together. The story was great, the romance hot and steamy. Very well written and incredibly enjoyable. I'm already anxious to read Deep.

Hopeful Review Post and Author Spotlight


Guys like Joel Wentworth weren't meant to fall in love with girls like me. He could have had his pick of the girls on campus but somehow the laws of nature were defied and we fell crazy in love. And for a short time I thought it would be for infinity.
On July 10, 2006, straight after graduation, Joel left for New York and despite him wanting me to go with him, I refused, unwilling to disappoint my parents and risk the judgment of my friends. I never saw him again. Never even spoke to him.
I've spent the last eight years working hard to put my career front and center in my life, dodging any personal complications - I have a strict no dating policy.  I've managed to piece together a reality that works for me. Until now.
Now, Joel's coming back to London.
And I need to get over him before he gets over here.
*Not suitable for younger readers due to sexual content and language.*

Carrie's Review: I greatly enjoyed Ava and Joel's story and loved how their past story was interspersed with the present. Great romance and loveable characters. This is a companion book to Faithful(Leah and Daniel's story) and a fantastic summer read.



1. What or who inspired you to write? I was inspired to write when I looked up my first crush online and he'd become a super successful entrepreneur. I thought it would be a great start to a romance novel and it's how Faithful begins.
2.
Who are your favorite authors?
In my genre my favourite authors are Christina Lauren, Georgia Cates, Kristen Proby, JLynn - the list goes on and on. I'm reading the Will by Kristen Ashley and I'm loving it at the moment. It's my first one of hers and it won't be my last.
3.
Which is your favorite of all your characters? You can't make me choose! I'd be friends with any of them and I wouldn't mind getting to know Joel or Daniel a bit better!
4.
Who would you cast to play Leah and Daniel in a movie? Joel and Ava?Gosh that's so hard. I can't imagine an actor in any of the roles because they exist in my head as real people! For those that have seen my teasers will know that Justin Joslin was my inspiration for Joel in Hopeful.
5.
What is/are your favorite book(s)?My favourite book in my genre is Beautiful Player. Love that Will Sumner!

Better Date Than Never Book Blast




The Better Date Than Never box set from USA Today Bestseller Susan Hatler includes six contemporary romance novellas from the bestselling series, Better Date than Never. Dating is so much easier when you have good friends to lean on. . . . 

(Love at First Date, Book #1) 
Ellen may not believe in storybook love, but it’s about to rewrite her life. . . . 



Excerpt from Love at First Date (Better Date than Never, Book #1)

Holding Rachel’s bright yellow dishtowel under Chester’s saliva-dripping mouth, I panicked at the morphed sounds he was making. “Hang in there, dude.”

I shifted him in my arms then slammed on the metal bell some more. “Does anyone work here?”

“Can I help?” A male voice came from behind me.

“Yes, this dog got into my purse and—” I paused mid-sentence as my gaze met dark gray eyes that sent a bolt of adrenaline through me. My heart flipped in my chest. Not an appropriate reaction when Rach’s dog could be dying. “I-I think he ate something toxic. Maybe my lip-gloss? Are you the vet? Can you give him that charcoal stuff to make him barf it up?”

He studied Chester’s half-open mouth. “Try setting him down. I’ll take a look.”

“Thanks.” I knelt, still holding the towel under his mouth—because, ew, slobber all over the place.

The vet dropped to his knees next to Chester and pried his little jaw open.

Hech! Hech!

As he examined the dog’s throat, I couldn’t help checking him out. There was something going on behind those dark eyes that had me dying to learn everything about him. Where he was from, what made him tick, what he looked for in a girl . . .

My pulse slammed into overdrive.

Weird that the vet was wearing sweats, though. Maybe he’d finished with his last patient and was going for a run? Definitely looked like a guy who worked out regularly. Yeah, that’s what I should be thinking about while my friend’s dog was gagging for his life. What was wrong with me? Focus, Ellen. “Can you save him?”

(Truth or Date, Book #2) 
Truth or Dare is all fun and games until a spontaneous dare has Gina falling for the office playboy. 

(My Last Blind Date, Book #3) 
Should Rachel risk another dating disaster by trying yet again for love? 

(Save the Date, Book #4) 
Kristen swears off men, but temptation swoops in when her sexy friend Ethan starts flirting with her. 

(A Twist of Date, Book #5) 
Will Melanie have to follow her best friend’s narrow dating rules in order to find lasting love? 

(License to Date, Book #6) 
Kaitlin agrees to five dates in five days only to fall for the mysterious bartender who’s there to witness them all.

Excerpt:

“Lena, you seen my old black Led Zep shirt?”
“Nope.”
“You sure?” His brows became one dark cranky line. The scratches on his face were healing well, thank goodness. Though it didn’t reduce my desire to throttle his mother on a daily basis.
“Yes. I haven’t seen it.”
Can’t find it anywhere…”
“And this is a surprise, how?” I slipped my hands into my back jean’s pockets. “Jimmy, you own more clothing than Cher, Brittney, and Elvis, put together. Things are bound to go missing.”
“Sure you haven’t seen it?”
“For goodness sake, what do you think, Jimmy? That I stole it to sleep in or something?” I laughed bitterly. Sure as hell, the truth deserved a good mocking. I’d sunk so despicably low.
I hadn’t even meant to steal the stupid thing, but the shirt had been mixed up with my laundry a few days ago. It’d been the first top I laid my hand on after stepping out of the shower, ready to go to bed. Without thought, I’d put it on and it’d been so soft, the scent of him lingering beneath the laundry detergent. Every night since, I’d found myself in it come bedtime. My shame knew no limits. And no, I still hadn’t quit. The words still hadn’t come even close to leaving my mouth.
He frowned. “No.”
“That I have some deep secret longing to feel close to you resulting in my stealing your shirt like some creepy perv?”
“Course I don’t fucking think that,” he replied crankily, reaching up to grip the top of the doorframe. All of his bulging muscles stretched the arms of his white T-shirt in the nicest way. It was all I could do not to start drooling, my heart beat taking up residence somewhere down between my thighs. And who could blame it? Not me. Maybe if I got laid, this would go away and things would return to normal. It’d seemed safer to avoid rubbing up against any men just in case I got carried away and started dating again. This new situation, however, changed everything.
“Well, of course not! That would be crazy.” And wasn’t that the god’s honest truth? Cray-zeee. Lock me up and throw away the key because it wasn’t like I didn’t know better.
“Just can’t figure out where the hell it could be.”
Angels couldn’t have smiled as innocently. They might have tried, but they would have failed, the dirty-mouthed, winged, little liars. “Jimmy, I don’t know where it is. But I’ll look around for it later, okay?”
“Yeah,” he said, and then added as an afterthought, “and stop looking at me weird.”
“I’m not!”

ReviewsHeader

*****I am in no way surprised that I love this book. It seems that each one just gets better. Carol is a character we've met in the previous two books, but we really knew nothing about her! Her story will make your heart squeeze. What I love about Maryann's books is that they are not just one thing. There is romance, intrigue, friendship, and all of the elements needed for a good read. Even sick it was hard to put it down.  *****Ahh What can I say that I haven't already about Maryann? LOVE this woman and her writing. After reading the first book in this series I didn't think anyone could replace my love for Jake and Emma...then came book 2 and I didn't know who to love more them or Laurie and Rob....now its book 3 with Carol and Tom, LOVE LOVE LOVE these 2. ***** MaryAnn has hit another homer! All of her books are relatable and I can see being friends with these characters. I enjoyed experiencing Carol and Tom's journey in their self discovery and also the journey to help bring them together. This is a story about "surviving" family, being comfortable in your own skin, and letting love work it's magical, healing powers.
