RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW: Old Fashioned by Kandi Steiner



Old Fashioned, the fourth and final installment in the Becker Brothers series by Kandi Steiner is LIVE!

🥃 Small Town Romance
🥃 Country Romance
🥃 Sports Romance 
🥃 Enemies-to-Lovers 
🥃 Angst Galore 
🥃 Single Parent 
🥃 Workplace Romance 
🥃 Mystery


It’s a man’s world.

When I declared sports medicine as my major and every man narrowed their eyes, that saying proved true. It was true when my ex-husband decided I’d give up my career when our daughter was born. And again when I divorced the Chief of Police in our small town, and he made it painfully clear that I could leave him, but I would never be free.

Landing the job as the new athletic trainer for Stratford’s high school team is my chance to start over. And walking into a male-dominated sport and staff, I’m ready for the challenge.

I’m not ready for Jordan Becker.

The head coach of our championship winning team is a Herculean force of nature—as severe as he is determined. His icy blue eyes and permanent scowl drive the women in this town mad, and his quiet power and undeniable command conjure respect from every man.

When I join his team, I expect the doubt and anticipate the fight from him. And I get them both.

I don’t expect to form a friendship.

And I never expect to fall for him.

My breath catches when those cool eyes fall to my lips. My body comes alive when his is near. And as those lines begin to blur, every warning bell sounds.

My job, my reputation are on the line.

And my ex is around every corner, waiting to remind me of his power.

It’s a man’s world, and if I want to survive, I can never fall in love with Jordan Becker.

Even if he falls in love with me first.

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

Whew! Sydney and Jordan! I loved these two so much. Jordan may have put his foot in his mouth at their first meeting, but it doesn't take long for the two of them to come to an understanding. All it takes is one speech on the first day of practice for Sydney to see how special Jordan is and it doesn't take long for Jordan to see that Sydney is very good at her job as well. The two form a friendship and Jordan starts working with Sydney's (adorable) daughter Paige, who wants to be a football player. And the rest, as they say, is history.

I really loved Sydney and Jordan's relationship. She might have some heavy baggage, thanks to her douchebag ex-husband, but Jordan has no problem taking it all on. He knows that Sydney and he daughter are special and he won't let anyone tell him anything different. Even his family welcome them with open arms, which is exactly what I expect from the Becker family. 

I am sad to see this series end, but we finally got all the answers we have been looking for!! I will say that it wasn't so much the mystery being solved that shocked me, but the fallout. Holy cow! I was not prepared for the bomb that was dropped. I am usually pretty good at picking on things like that, but I was totally blindsided! Well done Kandi!






About Kandi

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

BLOG TOUR: Reborn Yesterday (Phenomenal Fate #1) by Tessa Bailey



While their love is strictly forbidden, it might be the only thing that can save them…

Reborn Yesterday, an all-new unique and unforgettable paranormal romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey, is available now.



A timeless love story with bite.

It was a night like any other for funeral home director Ginny Lynn, until the exceptionally handsome—and unfortunately deceased—young man on her embalming table sat up, opened his emerald eyes and changed the course of her life forever, making her feel quite fluttery while he was at it.

Humans aren’t supposed to know Jonas Cantrell, or any vampire, exists. It’s kind of a major rule. Despite his instantaneous bond with perfectly peculiar Ginny, he has no choice but to erase her memories of their one and only meeting.

That was the plan. Before a reluctant Jonas can wipe Ginny’s mind clean, she reveal a secret that brings their worlds crashing together. Human and vampire. Past and present. Darkness and light. And while their love is strictly forbidden, it might be the only thing that can save them…

EXCERPT


“Will there be a million weeping women at your wake?” She tapped a finger to her lips. “There will be, I’m sure of it. The place will overflow with tears. I better make sure our flood insurance is up to date.”

As she commenced circling the table once more, her white lab coat scratched against the hem of her green plaid dress, which fell sensibly to her knees. It was cold in the funeral home, especially downstairs where P. Lynn Funeral Home’s guests were kept in preparation for their final goodbye, so she’d pulled on thick black stockings with a flower pattern before coming below to work the night shift.

Dressing with care was Ginny’s way of showing respect to the people she worked on—a fact her stepmother and reluctant business partner often scoffed over—but a T-shirt and jeans simply didn’t cut the mustard when she’d been entrusted with a loved one’s care. Ginny had designed and sewn her current ensemble in class and she definitely shouldn’t be wondering what Dreamboat here would think about the cut and fabric. Or if he’d notice she’d fitted it a touch tighter in the hip zone than usually made her comfortable.

“I need help.” She gathered her auburn hair over one shoulder. “You agree, don’t you? Finally, you’ve gotten peace and quiet from your multitude of admirers and here I come, trying to annoy you into reanimation so I can find out the color of your eyes. You must want to die all over again.”

Continuing her journey around the table, Ginny’s gaze ticked to the clock, reminding her she should have started working half an hour ago. Why was she so reluctant to begin? Where did she get off experiencing the weight of loss when she’d never crossed paths with this individual before?

“Anyway, I know what you’re thinking. She’s brought up my legion of female fans three times now. She must be jealous.” Ginny stopped beside Dreamboat and looked down at his regal brow, the masculinity of his jaw, and a horrible welling started in her chest. “I think you’d be right,” she whispered in a red-cheeked rush. “I think if you’d smiled at me even once on the subway a decade ago, I’d be out avenging your death right now. Isn’t that crazy?”

Just to be sure a terrible (wonderful) mistake hadn’t been made, Ginny lifted her right hand, letting two fingers hover over Dreamboat’s pulse. Her heart rate spiked at the prospect of touching him, which didn’t bode well for tonight’s task of filling his veins with formaldehyde. How could she give him the proper care he deserved if she couldn’t stop shaking?

A bracing breath passed between her lips.

She touched her fingers down to his pulse.

Nothing.

There had been no mistake.

He was thoroughly, devastatingly dead.

“I’m so sorry,” Ginny managed, her tears welling at such a rapid pace that one escaped, glopping heavily onto the man’s stone cold torso.

His eyes shot open.

His…eyes shot open?





Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the workforce as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eleven years and seven-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

COVER REVEAL: Southern Storms by Brittainy C. Cherry



Even the town’s black sheep needed a friend sometimes

Southern Storms, an all-new angst-filled friends to lovers romance from Brittainy C. Cherry, is coming April 2nd and we have the gorgeous cover!


Cover Designed by Hang Le
Photographer: Rafa G. Catala
Model: Emilio Alcaraz



All I wanted to do was run away, I never expected to crash into his arms…

After leaving the city life behind to escape my loveless marriage, I moved to small town Havenbarrow for a fresh start.

What I didn’t expect was to find myself drawn to the town’s black sheep.

They called him troubled. Cold. A man with a dark past.

What everyone seemed to miss about Jax was the splashes of light in his eyes. The random acts of kindness he performed when no one was watching. The way he made me smile and laugh.

Jax helped unpack the baggage I’d been carrying around with me. He was patient with my pain and gentle with my scars. He was the stillness during my hurricane.

Yet when both of our pasts come back to haunt our present days, we realized quickly that sometimes loves stories didn’t end the way we’d hoped.

Sometimes you were left with only the damage from the storm.

4 Star Review: All I Ask by Corinne Michaels



Teagan Berkley is trying her best. A single mom raising a precocious teen, she may have given up on her dreams, but she's accepted her life in her small beachside hometown. Now the one person who abandoned her when she needed him the most has returned, bringing back memories of what might have been.

Derek Hartz arrives in town with a teenage daughter - and he's full of guilt over his failed marriage and the way he ended his friendship with Teagan. He's determined to set things right with her, but first he needs to gain her trust. Something he's not convinced he deserves.

As Teagan and Derek open up to each other-and confess their deepest secrets-it's impossible for them to deny what's always been between them. But just when their happily ever after is within reach, their complicated history surfaces again and threatens to keep them apart. Forever.

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

Imagine falling in love with your best friend while you are dating someone else. And then that best friend meets someone while at college and falls in love with them. You are still dating the guy from high school and are happy for your best friend, so you ignore your true feelings. Then the best friend asks you to be his "best man" at his wedding while you are PREGNANT with your boyfriend's baby and then only a couple months laters, cuts off all communication without an explanation. Now imagine that it is thirteen years later and you find yourself once again in the same town with your ex-best friend. He's single. And you're single. What would you do?

Teagan and Derek have a lot to work through and they manage to do it in an adult manner. Once Derek realizes that he finally can have Teagan in his life, he is determined to make her stay. Of course there are interferences, but they somehow manage to get through everything to find their happily ever after. 

I enjoyed this book. I only cried a little bit and that feels like an accomplishment. This book is plenty emotional (It's a Corinne Michaels' book....duh!), but it feels different from her other books. I can't really put my finger on it though.

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

Full disclosure: I don't read paranormal romances, but when Tessa said that she was writing one, I knew that I had to give it a chance. And I'm so glad I did!

Ginny finds herself fascinated when Jonas ends up on her mortician's table. But she becomes even more fascinated when he opens his eyes and it turns out he is alive. Well sort of. Meanwhile, Jonas is immediately drawn to Ginny and he doesn't know why. He finds himself breaking all the rules and when he finds out there is a threat to her life, will pretty much do anything to keep her safe. 

I really enjoyed this book! It's a little different from Tessa's other books, but you are still aware that you are reading one of her books. Jonas might be a vampire, but he is an Alpha vampire. Once he starts to really know Ginny and the extent of the threat against her life, his protectiveness is amped up, but A LOT. Once the book takes a turn into the steamy, it is VERY steamy. There are also some great secondary characters that I absolutely LOVED and I can't wait for their books!

If you're like me and don't usually read paranormal romance, but are a fan of Tessa Bailey, you should definitely 1-click this book.
