Blog Tour/Just One Year by Penelope Ward is #LIVE #REVIEW #TOUR

JUST ONE YEAR IS LIVE!

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

 

SYNOPSIS

The beginning of my sophomore year in college was off to a rough start.

On the first day of orientation, I had an altercation with an infuriating British dude in a campus bathroom.

(The ladies’ room was out of order. So, I used the men’s room. Don’t judge.)

I got home later that night and realized that the foreign student we were expecting to rent a room in my parents’ house was allergic to our cat.

So, the spare room went to someone else: Caleb—the British guy from the men’s room.

And so it began…my love-hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it hate-love in that order?

 

The guy knew how to push every one of my buttons.

Sometimes I’d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.

He’d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.

That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.

So frustrating.

And…

Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.

And hot.

 

He eventually grew on me, and Caleb soon became one of my best friends that year.

TToo bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could happen between us—for so many reasons.

I definitely couldn’t fall in love with him, especially since all we had was just one year.

This review can also be found on Goodreads.

“If life was nothing but empty promises, where would any of us be?”

Teagan was so smart and didn’t have time for dating but when she meets Caleb a super hot student it left her questioning her choices.  With a full career to focus and her insecurities of abandonment she had also seemed to abandoned her own family.

“Sometimes you have to force yourself to do what’s right, even if it doesn’t feel natural.  Maybe eventually, it would get easier.”

Caleb Yates was charming and unpredictable.  I really liked his sense of humor and honestly.  He told it like he saw it because in his world full of regrets he wanted to make the best of what life had giving him.

“Her secrets were like a drug.  She’d given me a little something, and I wanted more.  Needed more.”

I really wanted to love this story, it truly had a lot of potential but the story just dragged and I didn’t quite felt the connection between these two until closer to the end.  The story finally picks up for me after fifty percent.  I enjoyed the events leading to the end and overall the story felt complete at the end.

Just One Year is a story about forgiving yourself and accepting past mistakes.  Readers looking for a new adult second chances romance will find this story appealing.

ARC/LOYDA’S REVIEW ~ In the Garden of Discontent by Lily White

de60a-add-to-goodreads-button-2

4.5★★Stars

Genre: Dark Romance
Type: Standalone
POV: First Person – Dual

 

This review can also be found on Goodreads. and Amazon. 

“The truth had been buried beneath the ground in the garden we created, a strip of land poisoned by sorrow while beautiful for the flowers I planted.”

 

Ensley Bennett’s meets Noah Carter when she was barely ten years old.   At that young age no child should ever have to feel the way she already had in so many short years, except she had more damaged to come.  In the midst of her sorrow and pain and dark childhood she meets this boy that will mean everything to her.  

 

“We’re all just roadmaps of thoughts and emotions, memories and forgotten wishes.  Our jagged edges are softened only by the masks we wear to disguise our truth.”

 

Noah Carter has a bright future ahead of him but he loved Ensley so much he was bound to save her.  What he didn’t know was that some thing are just too broken to be saved.  Their story just hurts so damn much. 

 

“We were connected, the two of us, by invisible strings that were unbreakable over time or distance or heartache.  We were unbreakable together, bound by a lifetime of promises and secrets.”

 

I absolutely loved how this story, I always enjoy books that make me feel so much in so little time.  I had so many emotions while reading this book.  Mostly I was upset, angry, hurt, sad, but I was so disgusted with one particular character.  Overall, In the garden of discontent was a brutal, raw, dark and crazy story about survival.  Readers who enjoy disturbing topics will find this story appealing.

mirage (1)

 

Jaslyn Astor has enjoyed a privileged life, but after her father’s death, the circumstances change and Jaspar Lafar becomes her caretaker and fiancé. Realizing the mistake she’s made, Jaslyn wants to regain her freedom. As Axel Reed enters her world, Jaslyn recognizes hope but his role just may complicate things.

“I’m not weak, but I’m not strong either. I’m broken.”


Told from dual POV, the storyline shifts between Jaslyn and Axel revealing bits of their background and how they’re becoming attracted to each other. At first, Jaslyn is indifferent toward Axel because she knows he can be trouble, but Axel sees more than Jaslyn allows and he isn’t backing down.

“Fuck,” he mutters as he buries his face in my neck. “You’re the furthest thing from fragile.”


I liked how the fairytale re-telling dynamic was established with these characters, but I definitely wanted to know more about Axel’s background and the reason for Jaslyn’s choice. There was also more telling that showing, which at times slowed down the plot development for me. Adding to the cast is Rush who brings laughs but who also has a deeper story.

Mirage is a dark romance based on the tale of Aladdin and is book one in the Veiled Love Duet.

For two years, Mark Vincitore and Griffith Elswood have been living blissfully together in London. Savoring their time together, Mark thought he could move forward with Griff until suddenly his past comes calling. Though Mark is loyal to his family, protecting Griff is his priority.

“You deserve to be treated like a prince because you changed my whole life. I can’t imagine losing you.”


Told in dual POV, the sudden shift into Mark’s violent world scares Griff and makes him question what they’ve shared since Mark hid that part of his life. Trying to reconcile the adoring Mark he knows with the man who can kill in a blink of an eye, Griff must do what is right for his feelings and own safety.

“There’s always a risk when one isn’t careful enough.”
“And sometimes you choose to do something risky for one reason or another.”


Since Mark and Griff met, and knowing Mark couldn’t divulge his secrets to Griff, I was always nervous for the time the truth would be revealed. With Mark believing his past would only tarnish Griff’s view of him, I felt for Mark and so wanted him to feel like he deserved much more. As for Griff, his flirty and naïve ways are endearing but he also shows what he’s capable of being.

Remaining consistent with this series, there is heart-racing action, complex characters and steamy, page-turning scenes. Seeing Mark go into Alpha mode is hot as hell. With all the players now set in place, the plot landscape is cued for the ultimate culmination.

Black Lies is a dark romance about acceptance and loyalty amidst a mafia themed plot.

Release Blitz, Giveaway & Excerpt ~ In the Garden of Discontent by Lily White

Title: In the Garden of Discontent
Author: Lily White
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: February 19, 2020

This is a love story.
It’s brutal.
Heartwrenching.
Terrifying, honest, and raw.
But a love story nonetheless…because it is so beautiful.
Ensley:
Noah Carter was the type of guy that every girl wanted.
Gorgeous. Talented. Smart and kind.
He was the world that revolved around me even though I didn’t deserve him.
But then something went wrong.
He snapped maybe, just lost his mind.
I found him the night my family died, their blood staining his hands.
I put him in prison. I got my revenge.
But then years later he broke free and stole me away from my life.
Noah:
You couldn’t know Ensley without wanting to strangle her.
She was beautiful. She was wild. She was the girl next door.
I grew up with her by my side.
I watched her destroy herself while I held on.
I protected her when she had been blind to the danger that surrounded her.
I let her go once, only to find her again.
She would see me this time no matter what.
“I hate you,” she hissed, hair wild around her face like it always had been.
“I know.”
Her body shook, and her shoulders wilted, arms curled around her body, fingernails digging into her skin. “I need-“
“I know,” I said, stepping forward to grab onto her so she wouldn’t have to say it.
Our eyes met in the shadow of that room. “You don’t need to say it. I know.”
I’ve always known…but I couldn’t do anything about it.
Ens melted in my grasp, like water through my hands, trying to slip away and escape so she could damage herself in some way I couldn’t stop, but I wouldn’t let her.
Not this time.
Not again.
Gripping my hand over the back of her head, I pulled her to me, my mouth locking over hers, tongue risking the clench of her teeth because she would fight me tooth and nail while this happened, but that’s what she needed.
To fight me.
To injure me.
Because she had never been able to fight them.
Fingernails cut into my biceps, her body thrashing to break free, but I held on and kissed her like I was giving her the air she needed to breathe.
Shoving Ensley down on the bed, I grabbed the back of my shirt to strip it off, every muscle in my body tense because I knew I was a bastard for wanting this.
For wanting her.

For taking advantage, even though it had never been my intent.

4.5 ★

Ensley Bennett was born into a situation she couldn’t escape. Bearing so much responsibility and the brunt of an abusive mother, Ensley tried to do the best she could to protect her loved ones. Isolated due to her circumstances, Ensley absorbed all the pain on her own until Noah Carter became her friend and source of comfort.

“Give me your pain, Ensley, and I’ll carry it for you.”


Told in dual POV shifting between past and present, the plot steadily develops revealing the bleakness of Ensley’s situation. With writing that sharply builds layers of heartache and pain, Ensley has nowhere to turn until all she knows is taken from her. However, the truth may be the most painful of all.

“I knew she’d gone to that place inside her, a deep belly darkness where she stuffed things away she didn’t want to acknowledge.”


Ensley is a character that made my chest hurt because she is willing to sacrifice so much of herself despite the consequences. Noah warmed my heart from the beginning with his kindness and unconditional friendship with Ensley. Their story is damaged, but it’s also the only way they know how to survive it.

In the Garden of Discontent is a dark romance offering a uncompromising story about sacrifice and the search for truth.
