Release Blitz for The Sweet Spot by Bella Matthews

 


The Sweet Spot by Bella Matthews is now live! 


From USA Today and Amazon Bestselling Author Bella Matthews, comes a hot new hockey coach, single dad, marriage of convenience, small town romance.


A fake marriage with a single dad wasn't on my dance card but there are worse ways to start the summer.

Our story didn’t begin the night I agreed to marry Deacon Kane to help him keep his daughter. It started ten years ago, with a hotshot hockey player I couldn’t wait to see each summer. He was big, broad, and filled out his board shorts so damn nicely. But holy hell… The memories of teenage Deacon don’t hold a candle to the man he is now, the one who makes me melt each time he says, "my wife."

What was supposed to be a marriage of convenience quickly spirals into something else. Something I can’t control. Because this man makes me feel alive in a way I haven’t felt in months, and I want more.

More sparks.
More life.
More time.

Can a relationship based on lies last… Especially when I’m the one keeping all the secrets?

Release Blitz for Bright Lights & Summer Nights by Kat Singleton

 




Bright Lights & Summer Nights by Kat Singleton is now live! 


Summer nights can be full of surprises.


As a single, unemployed, and unapologetic twenty-five year old mess, I came to the Hamptons this summer for one reason—to focus on myself and work out my quarter-life crisis. I didn’t come here planning to sneak into a private party and meet a handsome stranger.


I definitely didn’t come here expecting for that stranger to be Preston Rhodes—billionaire and superstar quarterback for the Manhattan Mambas.


And that’s not even the crazy part.


He asked me to be his pretend girlfriend for a week while his family is in town. He needed a date for his sister’s wedding, and I’d never turn down the opportunity to be spoiled by a rich man.


The only thing is, Preston’s not very good at pretending.


Now instead of discovering myself, I’m spending the week discovering what life would be like with him. Instead of focusing on me, I’m focusing on how he looks at me, how he touches me, how he wants me.


But now that neither one of us is faking it, I only hope that we can hold on to what we have through the bright lights and summer nights.

Book Review for Jackie by Dawn Tripp

 Jackie by Dawn Tripp

Published June 18, 2024 by Random House

Genre:  Historical Fiction

 


Taken from Goodreads
:  In this mesmerizing novel about Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, acclaimed author Dawn Tripp has crafted an intimate story of love and power, family and tragedy, loss and reinvention.

The world has divided my life into three:

Life with Jack
Life with Onassis
Life as a woman who goes to work because she wants to.

My life is all of these things, and it is none of these things. They continue to miss what’s right in front of them. I love books. I love the sea. I love horses. Children. Art. Ideas. History. Beauty. Because beauty blows us open to wonder.
Even the beauty that breaks your heart.

Jackie is the story of a woman—deeply private with a nuanced, formidable intellect—who forged a legacy out of grief and shaped history even as she was living it. It is the story of a love affair, a complicated marriage, and the fracturing of identity that comes in the wake of unthinkable violence.

When Jackie meets the charismatic congressman Jack Kennedy in Georgetown, she is twenty-one and dreaming of France. She has won an internship at Vogue. Kennedy, she thinks, is not her kind of adventure: “Too American. Too good-looking. Too boy.” Yet she is drawn to his mind, his humor, his drive. The chemistry between them ignites. During the White House years, the love between two independent people deepens. Then, a motorcade in Dallas: “Three and a half seconds—that’s all it was—a slivered instant between the first shot, which missed the car, and the second, which did not. . . . A hypnotic burst of sunlight off her bracelet as she waved.”

This vivid, exquisitely written novel is at once a captivating work of the imagination and a window into the world of a woman who led many lives: Jackie, Jacks, Jacqueline, Miss Bouvier, Mrs. Kennedy, Jackie O.

 

My Thoughts:  Jackie Kennedy is a historical person that has always intrigued me.  I love to hear her accounts of the life she lived.   I always thought the life she lived was charmed but the more I read the more I realize how much she was put through to get through the life she was living. 

I liked that while I was reading a historical fiction book, Dawn Tripp (the author) stayed very true to history.   I enjoyed reading another perspective of the Kennedy legacy.  It is amazing to me how much I am able to retain from reading a good historical fiction book vs. how little I retained while taking history courses in school.  

Jackie is a great historical fiction book.   There were a few times that I felt I was reading non-fiction and it got a little dull.    I felt some of the paragraphs were repetitive or out of sequence but maybe that is because I have read or listened to so many Jackie/Jack Kennedy books that I am so familiar with their lives.   

Over all, this is a great historical fiction book.   If you are a fan of the Kennedy’s I recommend picking up your own copy.

Thank you Random House for a copy of the book via NetGalley in exchange for you my honest review.
