#BookPromo – Accidentally August by E.M. Denning

I’m not supposed to have a crush on Crispin Tate. He’s my brother’s best friend, and he’s also gorgeous and perfect in every way… except for his horrible taste in men. And the fact he’s ten years too old for me. Falling for Crispin at sixteen was a surefire way to break my own heart, but I convinced myself one day I’ll get over my unrequited crush. Only, I don’t. I grow up and fall even deeper in love with a man who knows I exist, but won’t ever want me *like that*.

Sometimes I think the only thing I’ve ever done right was rebuff August’s advances, because other than that, my life has been a complete mess. I married the wrong person, which led to a divorce that was the opposite of amicable. Then, one day in the middle of it all, August Shaughnessy grew up and grew into himself, but he didn’t outgrow the way he used to look at me when he was a teenager. It’s hard to not like him because he’s smart and funny and kind—he’s everything I ever wanted.

Now that he’s a grown man, the years between us hardly seem to matter. I can only hope that everyone else in our lives feels the same way because one morning I woke up and realized I’d accidentally fallen in love with August.

#Review – Wolf Gone Wild: A Steamy, Slow-burn Werewolf Romance (Stay A Spell Book 1) by Juliette Cross

What’s the worst thing that can happen to a werewolf?

Unable to shift for three months, Mateo Cruz knows all too well. His wolf has taken up residence in his head, taunting him night and day with vividly violent and carnal thoughts. Convinced he’s cursed, he needs the help of a powerful witch before he literally goes insane.

Evie Savoie has always obeyed the house rules of her coven–no werewolves. They’re known for being moody and volatile. So, when a distempered, dangerous werewolf strolls in the bar and almost strangles one of her late-night customers, she’s ready to bounce him through the door. But the desperation in his eyes when he begs her to help him softens her heart and convinces her to bend the rules.

What Evie doesn’t know is that Mateo’s wolf has a mind of his own. And now that she’s in his sights, he wants only one thing. Her.

Oh my gosh I devoured this book!

I came across this series in one of the book groups I’m in over on Facebook. The poster had said that it was a fun read and that she loved the whole series. She wasn’t wrong!

I haven’t read paranormal romance in so long but man, am I ever glad I took a chance on this new to me author.

This book was exactly what I needed. I’ve been reading dark and heavy books for so long and writing them too, that I needed a break and this was perfect.

This story is about Evie, a witch, and Mateo, a werewolf. It’s a slow burn, which is something I don’t usually like, but it was perfect for this story and made complete sense. Mateo has an issue where he can’t shift and asks for help from Evie and her sisters.

I loved the side characters, the banter, the laugh out loud moments and I especially loved Mateo’s wolf, Alpha. Their back and forth had me laughing out loud.

This book was the perfect mix of spice, humour and suspense. It was imaginative, creative and I just loved it.

If you want a super fun, sexy, read with a hot werewolf and sassy witch, I 100% recommend this book! Now to read the rest of the series because I’m dying to know more about the other sisters!
