COVER REVEAL – HALF TRUTHS by Claire Contreras

You’ve heard of these groups – the secretive ones that only the crème de la crème are invited into, the ones outsiders speculate about for centuries – I’m the second in my family invited to attend, but to them, I’m fresh meat. New blood. New money, too.

They think they’ll elbow past me, that I’m here for their amusement, for them to walk all over, they’ll find out soon enough that I’m not.

I may look like one of them, with my designer bags and clothes straight from the Parisian runways, but I’m not. I’m here for answers, to take revenge for blood spilled on their centuries-old Persian rugs.

I transferred here in search for answers about what happened to my older brother, who hightailed out of here, and my friend who seemingly disappeared into thin air. I certainly wasn’t here for the attention of the star hockey player, regardless of how much he willed my eyes his way. I wasn’t here for his scrutiny or his judgment or to read into his mysterious aura. I was here for the society, because only they held the answers I needed. That was, until I found out that in order to get those answers, I needed to go through him. He’s saying if I want in, I have to play by their rules, follow their lead.

It’s a game I’m willing to play.

I may be the second person I know of to be invited into their society, but I’ll be the first to make it out intact.

LIVE – THE TROUBLE WITH LOVE by Claire Contreras

TTWL - RB banner.jpg

The Trouble With Love, an all new, contemporary romance by New York Times Bestselling Author Claire Contreras, is now live!

TTWL AMAZON

Things on my wishlist:
1. Start a new, awesome job
2. Create the perfect dating app
3. Stop dating douchebags

Things that actually happen:
1. Got a job in my dream tech company
2. Created a workplace dating app for said company
3. Was matched Bennett, who happens to own the company and is also my brother’s best friend

They say when it rains, it pours, but this is some serious BS. It doesn’t help that Bennett was the man I had my one last night stand with. It definitely doesn’t help that he seems to want me just as much as I want him. The issue is, he won’t do anything about it, but then we’re forced to attend a tech conference in Vegas and I think it may just be what I need to turn this thing around.

New goal: get my brother’s best friend out of my system by all means necessary.

The Trouble With Love is a standalone contemporary romance.

REVIEW – THE CONSEQUENCE OF FALLING by Claire Contreras

SYNOPSIS

The list of things I hate is short. Not even my soon-to-be ex-husband is on that list. Nope. I save only the worst of the worst, the crème de la crème, the absolute I cannot even for this list . . .

1. Black coffee
2. Rude people
3. Nathaniel Bradley

Which is why when my father informs me that he’s making Nathaniel Bradley his new business partner, and in turn, my boss, I flip out.

1. He’s an annoying know-it-all.
2. He calls me a spoiled princess every chance he gets.
3. He disapproves of everything I do.

I go into this knowing I’ll hate every second in his presence. Except the longer he’s around, the more I find myself staring at his lips and remembering the one time they were on mine. I randomly find myself looking at his hands and wondering how they’d feel on my skin.
I try to snap out of it, but I guess I’m not as smart as I thought I was. No matter how many times I remind myself of the times I’ve practically thrown myself at him and he’s pushed me away, I keep falling little by little.

I’d always heard that it was a bad idea to mix business with pleasure and if that’s the case, this thing with Nathaniel has demise written all over it.

 

*****Dee’s Review*****

FIVE STARS *****

YESSSSSSS! All the feels!!!!!!!

 

 

 

Nate and Presley have known each other for a long time; the attraction was always there, but the timing was never right.

Mutual pain is what will bring them together, but can they withstand the ups and downs of love?

Sexy, angsty and utterly beautiful. Claire Contreras will take you on a sweet journey that will give you goosebumps, a spiked heart rate, and every other intense feeling in between. Truly a fantastic read, not to miss!

REVIEW – BECAUSE YOU’RE MINE by Claire Contreras

SYNOPSIS

When you grow up in the most feared mafia family, it’s easy to identify the kind of men that are bad news.

They’re the ones with experience.
The ones with secrets.
The ones that exude sex just by saying your name.

From the minute I laid eyes on Lorenzo, I knew he wasn’t just bad news.
He was the headline.

My opinion didn’t change on our second meeting.

Or our third.

But my head and my heart are at war.

He’s too mysterious, too gorgeous, too wild, and now, he wants me.
I should run far away.
So why am I racing toward him?
I’m totally going to get burned.
I know it.
A man like Lorenzo won’t leave me unscathed.
He’ll make ashes of me.

4.5 Stars*****

What are the odds?

Wow! I think I’m going to be dreaming of Loren for days and days…

Sorry, I’m just still in awe with this hero. Loren is so EVERYTHING that I swear to God I feel the imprint of his hand burning all over my body. But back to the book, what can I say?–it’s Claire Contreras, I mean we know the woman can write one hell of a story. With this book, I don’t know what she was on, but keep giving it to her because she blew it out of the park with BYM. This book has action, hot romance, an explosive plot, and delicious characters that will keep you entertained and heavily excited throughout the entire read.

Loren is an Italian Alpha Male with trust issues (can’t get any better than that, right?) and Cat is a professional ballerina, who is the daughter of a mobster and is trying to escape the life, but the bullets eventually find her, and luckily for us, so does Loren.

 

 

This book has a red-hot premise for a fantastic series that will not disappoint and for sure will become everybody’s favorite.

REVIEW – MY WAY BACK TO YOU (Second Chances Duet #2) by Claire Contreras

SYNOPSIS

Book 2 in the Second Chance Duet . . .

Love isn’t always about timing.
Sometimes you have to throw caution to the wind and roll with it.

I admit I wasn’t ready.
I know you don’t want to look at me, let alone talk to me, but please, let me explain.

Give me a chance to find my way back to you . . .

 

 

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****4.25 STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

One thing I learned in the aftermath of our love was that my heart can crack, break into a million pieces, and shatter like glass, but it kept beating.

 

 

MY WAY BACK TO YOU, the conclusion of the Second Chances Duet, had considerably less angst than its predecessor, which I was highly grateful for. I love a good angsty story but the first book bordered on torturous for me. After having finished it, I was left feeling absolutely no connection to Tessa or Rowan. I thought Rowan’s reasons for doing what he did were lame and eye-roll inducing. I ended up liking Tessa’s character in this book and overall I was happy with how things turned out. These two had been through enough and four years of separation was a bit excessive.

Years after Rowan and Tessa were torn apart by seemingly impossible circumstances, Tessa is moving back to New York with her four-year-old son, Miles, for a job promotion. Rowan and Tessa have bumped into each other a few times over the years, and in all that time she has kept the fact that he’s the father of her child a secret from Rowan and almost everyone except her grandmother and sister. She struggled with her decision and felt extremely guilty for keeping Rowan from his son, but she couldn’t risk her son being subjected to the likes of his evil wife and mother. When a very important project is assigned to her at work she is forced to spend a great deal of time with Rowan since her company is using his textiles and also helping to promote one of it’s newest business endeavors. When Rowan figures out Miles is his son, he’s a bit shocked and hurt but Tessa is the love of his life and all he wants more than anything is to be with his new family.

While he tries to get his life in order by making his divorce with Camryn final, Rowan and Tessa start to rebuild what they once had. But will the unpredictable and slightly unstable soon to be ex-wife go out quietly or will she do her best to keep the lovers apart for many more years to come?

Having a son and building her career seemed to bring about growth for the character of Tessa. I found that I could be empathetic towards her when in the first book I wasn’t really crazy about her. I continued to have a hard time warming up completely to Rowan. He’s still my least favorite Hero created by Claire Contreras. He should have learned from his father’s mistakes rather than repeating them. He also states a few times throughout this story that he wouldn’t have done things differently. Having control over his company still outweighed living a blissed-out life with the only woman he ever loved. If he kept to that motto to the very end, I definitely would have rated this book lower.

Here are my overall ratings:
Hero: 3.5
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4
Angst: 3
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Heros & Heroine: 5
