About The Trouble With Wanting:
Ruby Roberts is heading to Cedar Point to connect with the father who left her behind. Easy conversation with the handsome man sitting next to her isn’t what she’s expecting from her cross-country flight, but it’s not something she’s complaining about, that’s for sure.
Boyd Mitchell is flying home for some end-of-summer relaxation and time with his favorite people – his family. A talkative seat-mate that pulls him out of his shell is the last thing he wants, but he can’t seem to resist her charm.
When Boyd and Ruby end up in the same lakeside town, their banter and flirtation quickly become a steamy fling that leaves them both breathless. Neither of them are expecting to find a romance that has them both reconsidering everything they used to believe about love.
As their time in Cedar Point comes to an end, the two will have to decide whether they want their connection to turn into a real-world relationship, or whether wanting more is nothing but trouble.

Today we have the release day blitz for THE BREAKUP BUCKET LIST by Cassie Cross! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!
Title: The Breakup Bucket List
Author: Cassie Cross
Genre: Contemporary Romance
About The Breakup Bucket List:
Ever since Lindsay Castillo was a little girl, she dreamed about living in Port City. As an adult, she learns the difficult lesson that dreams aren’t always what they’re cracked up to be. With a broken heart, an apartment full of boxes and a moving company booked, Lindsay jots down everything she wants to do before she leaves Port City and heads back home to start over.
She has a month to mark off everything on The Breakup Bucket List.
Evan Roberts is doing his best to live up to the high expectations that come along with having his last name. As Port City royalty, he’s been following a strict path to success since the day he was born. He’s looking for a little fun—something to shake up the monotony of his life—when he runs into Lindsay. He’s captivated by her and welcomes the challenge of helping her complete her bucket list.
It doesn’t take much convincing for Lindsay to agree; there are some things she wants to do before she moves that only someone with Evan’s access can help her with. What starts off as a simple partnership grows into more as Lindsay and Evan race against the clock and Lindsay’s moving day draws closer…
The question startles me so badly that I kick my shoes right off my feet. I sit up quickly, pressing my hand against my chest to make sure my heart is still somewhere inside my body instead of flopping around on my blanket.
Handsome impostor picks up my shoes, placing them neatly beside me.
“I’m sorry I scared you,” he says with a smile that brings out this dimple in his cheek that makes him almost too cute to be mad at. “You scared me, too.”
“That’s okay,” I say attempting to catch my breath and sound unaffected at the same time. “I guess I thought I was the only trespasser up here.”
He laughs. “You are.”
He tugs on the badge that’s attached to the lanyard that’s hanging around his neck. I lean in close enough to read it. It has the logo of the company on the background, along with what has to be the world’s best ID photo, and his name.
Which is Evan Roberts.
Okay, so my somewhat calmed heart is racing again. “Evan Roberts of the Roberts Industries? Or is that just a happy coincidence.”
“Guilty as charged, I’m afraid.”
He’s trying to be friendly, but I’m worried this is some kind of an act to get me booked on misdemeanor trespassing charges.
“How do I know you’re you and not someone who’s just claiming to be you?”
He grins, and that damned dimple comes rushing back. “You don’t think I’m me?”
“I’m appropriately skeptical, I think.”
“Would you like me to have a background check run on…myself?”
It’s a tempting offer, but… “I think I would like a third party of my choosing to check up on you. To make sure you are who you say you are and also to make sure you’re not a creep.”
That surprises a laugh out of him. He shoves his hands in his pockets. “Please do. I can provide references if you’d like.”
Cassie Cross is a Maryland native and a romantic at heart, who lives outside of Baltimore with her two dogs and a closet full of shoes. Cassie’s fondness for swoon-worthy men and strong women are the inspiration for most of her stories, and when she’s not busy writing a book, you’ll probably find her eating takeout and indulging in her love of 80’s sitcoms.
Today we have the release day blitz for Danielle Pay’s contemporary romance, Taking Her Chase! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!
Title: Taking Her Chase
Author: Danielle Pays
Genre: Contemporary Romance
About Taking Her Chase:
He's in love with his best friend. She's dating his number one suspect. What could go wrong?
Harmony Brose can't stop fantasizing about her best friend. After a few drinks, she took a risk. She asked Chase to kiss her. It was the best kiss of her life. Until he jumped up and left, breaking her heart.
Officer Chase Harvey had thought about kissing Harmony for years but never crossed that line until that night. Fearing Harmony was drunk, he had to cut it off until he was sure she truly wanted him. Apparently she didn't, because Harmony just started dating the new man in town.
Chase doesn't have time to waste on regrets. A woman vanished from their small town and he'll do whatever is necessary to solve the case. When evidence points to the new man, Chase must follow the lead. It has nothing at all to do with the fact the man is dating Harmony...
Now he has to decide. Is he willing to risk losing the woman he loves in order to protect her?
Harmony answered her phone. “Good afternoon.”
Even through the phone, this man’s voice caused her to squeeze her thighs together.
“Will you be working all night?”
“Actually no. That’s why I called. I’ll be done in about two hours. Do you want to hang out?”
“That sounds good,” she said casually.
“All right. I can swing by and pick you up.”
“I’m at Lauren’s. Can you pick me up here?”
He chuckled, and she could imagine the lines by his eyes when he smiled.
“You two having happy hour?”
“All right. Just don’t get too carried away. I have plans for you later, and you’ll need your energy.”
She took a drink of wine to keep from laughing. She knew what he was thinking but was curious what he would say when pressed.
“Plans that involve my head between your thighs.”
She spat out her wine. “Holy shit, Chase.”
He laughed. “Too much?”
She grabbed a napkin off the table and cleaned up. “No, just unexpected. I guess I never really knew this side of you.”
“Just thinking of you brings up so many dirty thoughts.”
“Yeah. And I can’t wait to share every one with you.”
“You want to share some more now?”
He chuckled. “I never knew you liked dirty talk.”
“There is a lot you don’t know about me,” she said, hoping her voice sounded sultry.
“Mmm. Is that so?”
“If you play your cards right, I might let you get to know more.”
He growled. “Tonight, I’m going to get to know you really well, babe. I’ll see you in a couple of hours.”
“I’m looking forward to it.”
She ended the call. “Damn that man!”
“Someone has it bad.” Lauren walked into the room, carrying a bowl.
“Yeah. I do.”
