Release Blitz, Review & Giveaway - Cowboy Redemption by Kasey Millstead

Title: Cowboy Redemption
Series: Down Under Cowboy #6
Author: Kasey Millstead
 Release Date: July 31, 2015


'Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.' - Bruce Lee


If you learn from your mistakes, you’ll be a better person.

Life is all about making mistakes. I’ve made a lot of them in life, and learned from none of them. Until now. My biggest mistake of all, was letting him go.


I had it all. Money. Fame. Success.
Then I lost it.
I thought I finally had my life back on track when I found her.
But one slip up and I lost everything. Again.

Kennedy Crawley spends her days helping others conquer their demons at Hope and Chance Retreat, in Australia’s Northern Territory. After spending her life being someone even she didn’t like, she finally sought the courage to overhaul her life, dreams and aspirations. Now, she’s determined to stay on track and be a better person.

Kye Austin was living his dream life as a professional football player. Until the day his sins caught up with him. He was sent to Hope and Chance Retreat to get his life back on track. After winning his battle, he decides to stay in the area and try to win the affections of Kennedy. There’s just one problem: she’s not interested.

This is the first book I have read of this series as well as by Kasey and I fell in love with it. So this is based only on this book and not the ones Kennedy had previously appeared in. I don't know all of Kennedy's back story and how she use to be or what all she has done but this book did give you a little insight and man she was a straight up b!tch to her sister when she was younger. Since then she has grown as a person and although her sister has forgiven her there are times she doesn't believe she should be.

Kye was a top football player and he played the game hard as well as his life. He had an issue with drinking and it was never just one. When trouble landed him at the hope center as his condition for no jail time he met Kennedy and started turning his life around.

But just when you think everything in your life is perfect something always bites you in the ass. Will Kennedy and Kye be able to get through this current situation or will it be too much for her to handle?

Would definitely recommend this book to others. And I know after reading this one I will be going back and reading the others from this series to learn what everyone else's stories are.

Fabulous read Kasey!!!

An Obsession with Vengeance Cover

Synopsis: Maksim Kirov is a mobster who gets what he wants, both at his posh gentleman’s club in Hell’s Kitchen and in the bedroom. Sexy, dangerous, and obsessed with control, he’s risen through the ranks to become a highly respected leader in the tight-knit Tarasov crime syndicate. He rules with an iron fist…until he meets Sydney Martin.
The Australian-born Sydney is determined to refuse Maks’s advances, despite their electrifying chemistry. The owner of a neighboring nightclub, Sydney rules her own domain. But when a deal with a Mexican drug cartel goes terribly wrong, she has no choice but to turn to Maksim and the Tarasov organization for protection. Could giving in to their intense attraction be what saves both Maks and Sydney? Or will their all-consuming passion—and her shocking secret—destroy their lives? In the hot and scandalous third installment of the Wanted Men series, lust and loyalty clash in New York’s mob underworld.

*NOTE* All books in the Wanted Men series can be read as standalones.

Add to Goodreads

This is my first read by Nancy and the first book I have read of this series and after reading this one I know I will be going to read the first two.

I fell in love with the story line, the characters and the writing. Maks is a sexy, brooding, arrogant but also a gentleman. I love the back story of Maks even though it was heartbreaking to hear what he had endured at the hands of his father. Maks is a very dangerous man but when it has to do with a child or woman he is the kindest man around.

Sydney has a secret shes been keeping and when it lands her and her son in the right in the face of danger she seeks out Mak for protection. during this time of Mak helping her they get closer but there is more danger around the corner.

This book had me at the edge of my seat and flipping page after page to know what was going to come next. But you never expect it when it does.

Also in the Wanted Men series...

Title: Slipperless (Book #4)
Series: Slipperless: A Billionaire Love Story #4
Author: Sloan Storm
 Release Date: July 29, 2015


Battered. Bruised. Broken. Every single day, my troubles worsen...

After nearly losing Gabe, I've come to realize just how much he means to me. Yet even though I might want to confess my true feelings to him, doing so would leave me far too vulnerable at a time when I can least afford it.

That's because devastating news about the Link Protocol and my grandmother are threatening to send my career, and my life, spiraling out of control.

With the demise of my only relative seemingly imminent and Gabe's unceasing demands weighing on me, I'm not sure how much more I can take.

I've never been under such relentless pressure...

What am I going to do?

This is the fourth book in a Billionaire Romance series presented in serial format. It is not a standalone. All individual entries are currently free with Kindle Unlimited.

Gah these characters frustrate me to no end but I'm loving this series!! After the way book 3 left you with that jaw dropping cliffhanger I couldn't wait to dive into this book. (pun not intended) Gabe kind of irritated me because of the way he had been treating Fiona but at the same time Fiona gah what more is she hiding? She has hinted to Gabe that because of certain things they cannot be anything but what the heck am I missing? This one also had me crying for Fiona and the outcome of this book and things that happened.

I'm not one to post spoilers if I can help it so my review is going to be cryptic but if you have not read this series by Sloan Storm what are you waiting for? all 4 of the books are quick reads and just oh so good. they build you up and keep you wanting more. Ready for the 5th and final book to see how this crazy relationship is going to turn out. Will they get their HEA or has too much happened already that they will just be work colleagues from here on out?

Underneath the warm afternoon sun, we intertwined our bodies, twisting arms and legs as the sailboat rocked back and forth with the gentle currents. Between the sounds of our hungry groans for one another, the lyrical cries of seabirds overhead passed in and out of my awareness.

A subtle breeze stirred the sail into action, causing it to flap and crack like an oversized whip. I swirled my fingers in Gabe’s hair, gently twisting the loose, damp curls. Gabe held me firm, with one hand around my midsection and the other cupping my breast.

When I thought I’d lost him, the feeling I experienced was about so much more than the physical. But now, having him here again, holding me, touching me and consuming me—I realized how connected I’d become to him.

I allowed my fingertips to slide down the back of his head, along his neck and towards the sun-warmed skin of his muscular upper back. Curling my fingers under, I dug the tips of my nails into his flesh as I further sought to reassure myself of his physical presence.

As I did, Gabe grunted and contracted his shoulder blades, drawing them together in a tight ball of sinew. I moaned in return and relaxed my grip, moving down further yet again until I reached the hard, round muscularity of his perfect ass, squeezing it and pulling it towards my hips.

Just then, Gabe separated his mouth from mine. As the satin soft feel of his lips moved away, I let loose with a disapproving pout.

Gabe chuckled as he looked down at me. “What’s the matter?”

Releasing one of my hands from his backside, I drew it up towards my face and pointed at my mouth.

“My lips miss you already.”

“Which ones?” Gabe said, with a devious smile on his face.

I returned his grin with one of my own. “You’re terrible, you know that?”
