pushtheenvelopeLooking for an alpha male in your new adult romance read?
You just found one.

“I love alpha males…. Yes I know Alpha males are the in thing but they need to be done right and in this book Drake is perfect.” -Aurora Rose Reynolds, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of the Until Series

“Absolutely loved! I’m a sucker for the over the top, crazy in love alphas. You give me one of those and I’m sold.” -Harper Sloan, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of the Corps Security Series
Alexa is just your average college junior, attending classes and piloting Mile High Club charter flights. Boys haven’t been on her radar for a couple years after a disastrous breakup with her high school sweetheart. Her plans to focus on school hit a bit of a snag when she meets bad-boy Drake Bennett and he sets his sights on making her his own.

Drake transferred to Blythe College for the rugby team, not for a new assortment of college girls. He’s sexy and cocky, and he attracts women like moths to a flame. When he meets Alexa, Drake knows he’s met his match. She tries to resist him, but Drake isn’t used to taking no for an answer.

This is the first book in the Blythe College series by Amazon Bestselling Author Rochelle Paige. Push the Envelope does not have a cliffhanger.
Warning: 18+ due to sexual content.

rochellepaigeI absolutely adore reading – always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year’s resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me “About time!”

I am late to the game when it comes to Ms. Paige. I just recently found out that Rochelle Paige and Elle Christensen together write as Fiona Davenport(that has an AWESOME Mafia series that I adore and re-read every chance I get!) This book was free on Amazon so of course I grabbed it up. It’s got some of my favorite things: alphas, college romances, and girls that say HELL NO when a guy is being a dick. And Drake can be a dick of epic proportions.

Alexa and Drake feel an instant pull towards each other, but due to some miscommunication, Drake is rude to Alexa because he thinks she is with someone else. But when Drake finds out that Alexa is very single, he makes sure to wrap it up really quickly.  He makes sure every guy on campus knows there together. And short of tattooing across her forehead, he shows Alexa he’s in it for the long haul. Convincing Alexa of this is a different story.

I absolutely adored Alexa’s take-no-shit attitude and Drake’s alpha-machoness (is that even a word?). I loved Alexa’s relationship with her Dad, and her relationship with her best friend’s family. And I loved the drama! It was the kind of drama that makes you want to bash in Drake’s head, and shake Alexa, but also know that Alexa made smart decisions, while Drake was too busy coming to terms with his excess of emotions.

Plus, Alexa can fly a plane (thanks dad!) and uses that to pay for school. How? Mile-High Plane rides. That’s right ladies and gents, Alexa has a program that lets rich people pay to get their rocks off in the air for a few hours. Not only can Rochelle Paige write a really good book, she’s an entrepreneur. I don’t know if things like this exist, but they should.

And lord, that snippet at the end, it gives you Drake’s POV for some very important scenes. Basically, I loved everything about this book and it is FREE on Amazon! So go get your copy no!

Shoo! Go!

Until Mallory by Ella Fox Review

blurbuntilmalloryMallory McDonald might have bitten off more than she could chew when she moved to Nashville. That could be because the temporary rental she’s in is a dump, or it might be that the police just kicked in the door of said rental and came in with their weapons drawn.

Officer John Wright is stunned to realize the girl standing in front of him with her hands up is the former neighbor he’s pined over for years. Now that he’s finally got her within his sights, he plans never to let her go.

authorellafoxUSA Today Bestselling Author Ella Fox has learned a bunch of stuff along the way but the most important of all those things is that anything is possible when you try. In 2012 she took a big leap of faith and published her first book, Broken Hart. Since then she’s written fifteen more full-length books and several novellas– and every one is a reminder that you can live your dream as long as you work for it.

Ella’s favorite things are music, movies, traveling, The Foo Fighters and, of course, reading. This isn’t a surprise considering the fact that her mom is USA Today Bestselling Author Suzanne Halliday.

Every time I read one of these books, I swear it’s my favorite. They literally just keep getting better and better. My standards for writing and love stories have also gotten higher. Ella Fox created a story that was so sweet, so beautiful, and it fit right in with the Maysons.

John is a cop who moved away from Chattanooga to escape the feelings he’s had for his neighbor for over two years. He wanted to take her out, treat her right, but his neighbor’s strict grandmother refuses John access to the woman who stole his heart after a brief meeting.

Mallory has lived with her strict grandmother since she was three years old, and has tried to adhere to her grandmother’s rules. She was always a good girl. She met John and felt an instant connection with him. She always wondered why he never asked her out, never realizing he tried to. A month after John left Chattanooga, Mallory’s grandmother passes away, leaving her on her own. She works her butt off before deciding to move to Nashville, where John is, and try to connect with him.

And they connect in an explosive way. I thought Brandon and Asher moved their women into their houses fast, but I seriously think John wins. And Nico wins his bet- you’ll get the reference if you go grab the book. (Nico has lots of bets…)  And I freaking LOVE that John has a cat with an attitude. My list of swoon-worthy alphas is seriously single dads, men with pets that they treat like prince/princesses, and guys with tattoos. (Can you guess who my favorite Mayson brother is?)

I loved and adored this sweet story. Mallory is the absolute cutest, and John is so freaking swoon-worthy. He is so adorable, and hot, and everything. I’m going to stop babbling now, and let you go pick up the book yourself, but SERIOUSLY it’s 5 stars.
