Blurb for FINDING STORM:

The son of an icon.

He was a legend. Rock royalty.

A man I never met.

But I’m measured against him in every aspect of my life.

The only time I feel like me … the real me … is when I’m onstage with my band. But the more we grow in popularity, the more people compare me to him.

I’m not him. And I never will be. If only everyone could figure that out for themselves.

I need a break from it all.

Then, a confrontation has me jumping in my car, putting LA in my rearview mirror. And a stupid mistake ends up with my car on the side of the road. And straight into the path of a girl who is the exact opposite of everyone else in my life.

She’s like everything I used to know.

And she has no clue who I am.

Even if she did, I don’t think she’d care.

She thinks I’m cavalier.

I think she’s intriguing. And hot. Let’s not forget hot.

I’m stuck in this town overnight while my car is being fixed. But I’m thinking I’m gonna stick around a bit longer.

I’m Storm Slater, lead guitarist in Slater Raze and the only child of the late, great Jonny Creed. But, here, right now … I’m nobody. Just a regular guy.

I’m liking it a whole lot.

And I’m liking her even more.

LIVE – RIVER WILD by Samantha Towle

SYNOPSIS

A new town. A new identity. Pregnant and alone.

And far away from a past that can never find me.

River Wild.

Moody. Sullen. Asshole.

And my new neighbor.

I have no interest in befriending River. And he definitely doesn’t want to be befriended by me.

Then, he helps me rescue an abandoned dog. And, that day, I see something in his eyes that reflects back in my own. Sadness. Pain. Loneliness.

I know all of those things well.

An unwanted and unexpected friendship that somehow works. Then, without warning, it turns into something more.

River and I both have our secrets, and that’s okay. Because I understand him. And he understands me.

For the first time in my life, I have something I never thought I would have—happiness.

But happiness isn’t forever. Not for people like me.

Especially not when my past is waiting just around the corner, ready to come and take it all away.

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

Love is like a river, never ending as it flows but gets greater with time.

 

 

Once I picked this book up, there was no putting it down until I got to the end. RIVER WILD starts off with some very painful subject matter, and the author does add a note at the beginning of the book, warning that the situations in her story can be triggers for some readers. Know this going in! But, I have to say this story was beautiful and it would be a shame for anyone to miss out on it. Samantha Towle has knocked it out of the park with this one!

 

 

Carrie Ford has just moved to a small town in Texas under a new identity. She had to in order to provide her unborn child with a better life. Staying with her abusive husband was not an option. She’s been to hell and back and yet there is still so much purity & sweetness in her. She tries to make friends with her next-door neighbor, but he is one hell of a prickly bastard who is obnoxious and rude to her every chance he gets.

But River’s cold exterior is no match for the sweet and endearing Carrie. These two may seem as different as night and day, however, they’re kindred spirits in their horrifying pasts that still haunt them. River has only ever loved two people in his life, his mother and grandmother. They’re the only people who ever showed him true love and compassion. Ugly rumors about his family have spread throughout town, and he’s learned to keep his distance from the outside world until Carrie moves next door to him. River and Carrie are inexplicably drawn to each other and it’s through their special bond that they’re able to start on the path to healing.

 

 

 

You can’t help but fall in love with these characters and hope for a beautiful ending for them!

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5
Angst: 4.5

LIVE – RUSH (Gods #2) by Samantha Towle

 

With the first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the New York Giants select…”

It’s been three years since quarterback Ares Kincaid’s NFL dream came true, and he’s living the high life. The days of cleaning up after his drunk of a father are long gone, and he has no intention of going back.

A car crash and DUI charge meant a lengthy stint in rehab for Arianna Petrelli, and her dream of being a professional artist slips further away when she’s sacked from her position at a gallery. Her need for a job stronger even than her dislike of football, Ari goes to work for her father, the head coach of the New York Giants.

Ares hates alcoholics, which is fine with Ari because she thinks he’s a brainless jock. Yet when Ares rescues Ari from a situation with her ex-boyfriend, an unlikely friendship begins – one that quickly becomes more.

But messing around with the coach’s daughter can only lead to one thing…trouble.

RUSH has a special pre-order price of $0.99/£0.99. This is the only time it will be on sale. Price will rise to $3.99/£2.99 on release day.

‘A moving and fan-yourself-worthy love story’ USA Today’s Happy Ever After on Ruin

*****Dee’s Review*****

4 Stars****

Nothing better than a super hot athlete and a sassy heroine, written by the talented Samantha Towle to keep me entertained and make my heart dance.

 

Ari’s life is very complicated. She got fired from her job, recently got a DUI and is fresh out of rehab. It’s been hard finding a new job once you have a police record, but lucky for her, her father is the coach for the New York Giants football team and has given her a job. Ari is an artist, one that hasn’t painted in a long time but an artist nonetheless, and she hates football, so she has no clue what she’s going to do at this new job. But she is desperate for a second chance, and she might just find it in the arms of the star quarterback of the team.

Ares Kincaid is the golden boy of football. Gorgeous, kind and almost too perfect. But the moment he meets Ari he has nothing but bitterness towards her, making her feel less than, and not deserving of the second chance she desperately wants. The problem is Ares is actually very attracted to Ari, their chemistry is hot off the charts but trust issues might dampen the chances of love growing between them.

This story is really sweet but also passionate. I loved Ari’s character, she was strong, and even when she felt down, she would get right back up. Ares was just YUMMY and HOT. They make the perfect couple. This was a delicious page-turner that I’m sure everyone will love.

 

 

*****Patty’s Review*****

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

It’s amazing how life can change in the blink of an eye. One blink, and my hedonistic lifestyle—the one I was so sure that I loved—came crashing down around me, bringing me to a new reality. A clean, sober reality. But also a lonely, empty reality. Then, one person came along and changed everything so very completely again. One kiss changed everything.

 

 

RUSH, the second installment from Samantha Towle’s ”Gods” series, was an incredibly sexy, angsty and entertaining read! I am loving this series so much. I have to say this was the perfect enemies-to-lovers romance! The story flowed perfectly and I loved both the Hero and Heroine.

Ares and Arianna’s first encounter is awkward and yet sexy at the same time. You can feel the attraction between them, but it’s like a bucket of ice water is poured on top of his head, when he finds out that Arianna is his coach’s daughter. Ares’ demeanor towards Ari turns sour and downright rude. His hangups from his personal life cloud his judgment and my heart ached for poor Ari.

Ari is a recovering alcoholic. She’s six months sober. She was charged with a DUI when she crashed her ex-boyfriend’s car. Fortunately, no one was hurt including Ari. But she ended up losing her job and her Dad, who is the head coach of the New York Giants, gets her a job working as a personal assistant to the team. At first, she and Ares do whatever they can to avoid each other until they run into each other in the city. Ares’ younger sister, Missy, takes an instant liking to Arianna and can see the effect she has on her brother. So Missy decides to play cupid and of course, her plan works.

The romance heats up pretty quickly between Ares and Arianna. It’s been a long time since Arianna has been truly happy. She’s always had a strained and almost non-existent relationship with her father and her mother committed suicide when Ari was fifteen. It was her mother’s death that caused Ari’s bout with alcoholism. Arianna’s life seems to be taking a turn for the better with Ares in it. But deep down she thinks she isn’t good enough for him and that one day he’s going to realize it and walk away from her.

The romance runs into some rough patches, of course, and for the first time, I was on the Heroine’s side. I love that the author didn’t turn her Heroine into a doormat, I don’t think I would have loved this story as much as I did if Arianna was a weak character. I’m trying not to give too much of the plot away. All I can promise you is that this is one of those stories that you’ll breeze through because it will grab a hold of you from the very first page.

Here are my overall ratings

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5
Angst: 4
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

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

The man is my weakness. My downfall. My ruin. He always has been. And it seems that he always will be.

 

I have been a huge Samantha Towle fan for about six years now and can honestly say I am always so excited when I hear about a new book she is getting ready to release. Her books are always an automatic must-read for me and what I love about her is that she can pretty much write about any trope and it’s guaranteed to be a winner! Her Heroes have been rock gods, race car drivers, Hollywood actors, wealthy businessmen, and now in ”RUIN”, the Hero stealing our hearts this time is a world-renowned boxing champion! Ladies, meet your next amazing book boyfriend….Zeus Kinkaid.

Zeus and Cameron met at a fair in Coney Island when they were teenagers. It was love at first sight. From that day forward they were inseparable. A few years later, Zeus’s boxing career starts to take off in a big way and his fighting schedule made it almost impossible for the couple to spend any time together. Zeus winds up doing the one thing he swore he would never do to Cameron. He breaks up with her after confessing that he cheated on her. Cameron’s heart is ripped to shreds. Then as if to make the situation worse, she finds out that she’s pregnant and when she tries to tell Zeus, he’s not even taking her calls and gets word to her that he wants nothing to do with the baby.

Four years later, Cameron is still living in New York with her aunt and she works two jobs to help support her little daughter Gigi. Her side job is working in a club as a go-go dancer. Cameron is a dancer. Her main form of dance was ballet. She had a full scholarship to Julliard but had to quit once she was pregnant with Gigi. Cameron comes face to face with the man who once owned her heart but whose cruelty turned her love into hatred. She never expected that Zeus would ever come back into her life. When he shows up at her home and lays eyes on little Gigi, the truth that has been buried away for the last four years finally comes out.

News of Cameron’s pregnancy never got back to Zeus and the reason for their breakup was yet another lie that kept the lovers apart unnecessarily. Zeus is instantly a goner for his little girl and while Cameron gives him all the time he desires to spend with their daughter, she is not so free with her heart. Zeus’s actions all those years ago tore her apart and her trust in him is barely hanging by a thread. She’s not willing to take a chance on getting her heart broken again by him.

Zeus is a determined man on a mission. He wants another chance with Cameron and nothing is going to get in his way. Can Cameron find a way to face her fears and give her little girl the family that she deserves?
