Blog Tour: Miss Mechanic (Emma Hart)


Review:

Two mechanics. One rivalry.
She’ll prove she’s as good as she says she is.
He’ll prove her place isn’t under the hood.
It’s over it.

“Don’t let the bastards get you down.”

For twenty-six years, I lived by my daddy’s motto. Which is why “Mechanic Wanted” is all it takes for me to apply for the job at the garage we once owned.

And I meet the biggest bastard of them all.

Dexter Ryne. Hotter than Hell in July and a firm believer that my place is on reception, taking phone calls and looking pretty. Not getting dirty under the hood of a car.

Determined to prove each other wrong, we make a deal.

I have three weeks to prove my worth as a mechanic. If I don’t, I’m on telephone duty.

If I do, he’ll accept defeat and make my job permanent.

Now, all I have to do is fight my attraction to the cocky little… beep.

Problem is, an engine isn’t the only thing he knows how to make purr…

After reading Miss Fix-It, of course I had to request this book, because I was hoping that another gem was going to fall into my lap. And although this one was still highly entertaining, it wasn’t as good as Miss Fix-It.

The writing was super fun and snort-worthy, and this book was told in dual POV, which was good. And it has to be said, Emma Hart writes amazing BANTER. So so good!

With this said, I loved loved loved the female main character, Jamie. She was such a strong and independent woman, and snarky, with an amazing sense of humour. I wasn’t as easily convinced by Dex. I liked him, and he was hilarious at times, but I wasn’t a fan of his treatment of Jamie most of the time. It bugs me that he wouldn’t have tried to keep it professional, at least for a bit longer, and I also didn’t like how dismissive he was of her in the beginning.

But I’ll admit that these 2 together were dynamite. The banter was fantastic, and all they’re scenes together were great. And throughout those interactions, I softened a bit in regards to Dex, and I saw what Jamie saw. They were a great match, and the chemistry was fantastic.

I also really liked the involvement of family, they were so important and so fundamental to the storyline.

 

If there’s one thing I felt it was a missed opportunity was how this book wasn’t even remotely related to Miss Fix-It. I wish they had been set in the same small town, because it would have been fantastic to have that connection.

Either way, super fun read, and I do recommend it. Jamie’s voice, and her banter with Dex are to die for.


EXCERPT:

“Can I help you?” I asked.

He blinked and met my eyes.

“What the hell are you doing over there?” I pushed to stand up straight.

“Right now?” He capped his water bottle. “Well, honestly… I’m just thinking you’d look better over the hood of that car than under it.”

I unhooked the hood and slammed it down, spinning on the balls of my feet.

Our eyes met properly. I didn’t like what I saw in his — desire, attraction, need. Which was obviously why a shiver ran down my spine.

I cocked a hip, putting my hand on it. “The only time you will ever get me over a hood of a car is if a wiper blade needs changing. So, unless you’re a wiper blade…”

Dex pulled his phone from his pocket and started tapping the screen.

I blinked. “What are you doing?”

He peered up at me through his unfairly thick eyelashes. “Seeing if I can get a wiper blade costume for Halloween.”

“I don’t even know how to respond to that.”

“You can buy wiper blade glasses.”

“What?”

He raised his eyebrows. “And a lady here on eBay will hand-make any costume. There’s my Halloween sorted.”

I stared at him. “You’re not getting me over anything, Dex. Definitely not a car hood. No matter what you think.”

He clutched his chest dramatically. “You wound me.”

“Unfortunately not fatally,” I muttered.

“You also underestimate me.”

“There’s a lot of that going around in this garage.” I put the bottle of coolant away.

“Touché.”

“Thank you.”

“Can I ask you something?”

I sighed and turned to face him again. “What?”

Earnestly, he asked, “Can you stop wearing those tiny shorts? Or yoga pants that make me want to touch your ass every five minutes?”

I looked down at the ripped shorts of my dungarees. “Can you keep your thoughts to yourself? Control yourself, maybe? Not look at me and see someone worth screwing?”

Cover Reveal: Bountiful by Sarina Bowen

I am beyond excited to show you guys the cover for the 4th book in the True North series, by Sarina Bowen, Bountiful

Amazon iBooks Kobo

No last names. No life stories. Those were the rules.

Once upon a time a cocky, copper-haired tourist sauntered into Zara’s bar. And even though she knew better, Zara indulged in a cure for the small-town blues. It was supposed to be an uncomplicated fling — a few sizzling weeks before he went back to his life, and she moved on.

Until an accidental pregnancy changed her life.

Two years later, she’s made peace with the notion that Dave No-Last-Name will never be found. Until one summer day when he walks into her coffee shop, leveling her with the same hot smile that always renders her defenseless.

Dave Beringer has never forgotten the intense month he spent with prickly Zara. Their nights together were the first true intimacy he’d ever experienced. But the discovery of his child is the shock of a lifetime, and his ugly past puts relationships and family out of reach.

Or does it? Vermont’s countryside has a way of nurturing even tortured souls. The fields and the orchards — and hard won love — are Bountiful.


I’m so excited about this book! It will combine the True North series, and Hockey, and OMG, I can’t wait to read the mash up that’s going to come from it.

I can’t wait to have this beauty on my hands!

Teaser Blast: My Best Friend’s Ex by Meghan Quinn

Check out this amazing teaser for MY BEST FRIEND’S EX by Meghan Quinn releasing on June 1st! 

MY BEST FRIEND’S EX
NA Romantic Comedy

Release Date: June 1, 2017


Blurb:

When I found an eviction notice taped on my apartment door, I had two options: find a comfortable cardboard box to call home, or move in with Tucker Jameson.

Seeing that cardboard makes me feel itchy, I chose the latter. Which shouldn’t be that big of a deal since Tucker is one of my good friends. And because he’s still pining after his ex-girlfriend and I’m trying to finish my nursing degree, there is nothing to worry about in the romance department, making my last semester an easy one to conquer.

Boy, was I wrong.

Rules are set, dinners are made, conversations are had, and a shirtless, swoony roommate walks around in nothing but a pair of black briefs, ruining me for every other man.

Before I know it, I turn into a panting, lust-filled woman begging for Tucker to kiss me, touch me, and show me exactly what is hiding under those briefs.

But with great orgasms, comes great consequences.

Tucker might be my friend and roommate but he’s also my best friend’s ex-boyfriend, making him completely off-limits. At least that’s what my brain is telling me, my heart is speaking an entirely different language.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Happy 4th Blogiversary to My Tiny Obsessions!!!!

4thblogiversary

People! My blog turns 4 years today!!!

4thblogiversary_1Last year I explained a bit how and why I decided to start a blog, but My Tiny Obsessions only turned into a book blog in the middle of 2015. I still try to have more diverse content, such as posts about music, TV and movies, but I’m not watching that much TV lately, so I’ve been lacking on that department.

Let me just make a few comments on how the last year of blogging went here, ok?

  • In the past year I had over 100,000 views from over 50,000 viewers (my total is now 255k views and 149k viewers);
  • I gathered over 22,000 likes and over 9,000 comments (which brings my total to 34k likes and 18k comments!);
  • I wrote over 600 posts during the last year, which means I have over 1600 posts on this blog;
  • 1,782 WordPress followers and 2,625 total followers (last year I had 763 WP and 1,230 total followers);
  • I started reading a lot more Romance and Contemporary and I like it;
  • I got eARCs from some of my favorite authors this year, and again, I liked it!

Overall, it was a good blogging year for me, and I hope I keep doing this for a long time to come.

A huge THANK YOU to all my followers and blogger friends!
you make this worthwhile :D.

Pushing the Limits (Katie McGarry)

pushingthelimits

“I won’t tell anyone, Echo. I promise.” Noah tucked a curl behind my ear. It had been so long since someone touched me like he did. Why did it have to be Noah Hutchins? His dark brown eyes shifted to my covered arms. “You didn’t do that-did you? It was done to you?” No one ever asked that question. They stared. They whispered. They laughed. But they never asked. 

So wrong for each other…and yet so right.

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with “freaky” scars on her arms. Even Echo can’t remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo’s world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she’ll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.


I read this book as a buddy read with  Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too, so go to her blog on the next few days to check out her review of this book.

Pushing the Limits was yet another book that had been sitting on my kindle for a long long time, and this December was the perfect time to finally get to it. I’m glad I did, but apart from the fact that this a contemporary YA romance, I knew next to nothing about it.

I really enjoyed the writing, the book is told in dual POV and I think that McGarry was able to capture the internal struggles of each character perfectly, giving them two very distinct voices. There was also humour within the very serious storyline, and I really appreciated that.

pushingthelimits_2

I liked both main characters, and there were some things that I thought they weren’t being exactly fair, but they were 17, so they very much acted their age. Both their stories are tragic, and I felt for both Echo and Noah, but I think that Echo’s story would have been a little worst?! Have you read this book? Maybe you know what I mean…

But in spite of loving the 2 main characters, I pretty much hated a lot of other characters in this book, and I wish that Echo would have been more her person, because she took a long time to see that some people were not good for her. But I did kind of understood her dad…

pushingthelimits_1

The romance was sweet, Echo and Noah together were cute as hell! I thought it was amazing how much they both grew during the book, and how much they helped each other get to a better versions of themselves.

pushingthelimits_3

Overall, I really did enjoy this book. It’s not an easy read, and it has some heavy elements, but it’s so well done. I have to admit that maybe I was expecting a little bit more, but the book didn’t WOW me, even though I really liked and want to read the rest of the series.
