RELEASE TOUR REVIEW - All I Ask by Elizabeth York

Title: All I Ask
Author: Elizabeth York
Genre: Contemporary/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 23, 2017 
Photographer: MHPhotography 

My name is Devan Anderson and I am a photographer and the by product of a cheating father and a childhood evaporated by illness. I'm stubborn, protective, but I care more than I let on. What does a girl like me do when I taste life for the first time?

I'll give you a hint. It isn't what you think.

My name is Ian Jensen and I am a Pediatric Oncologist that works day and night with kids that prove to be braver than I. I am open to Nerf gun fights, having fun, and taking control. What's a doctor who lives life by the book do when given a new chapter to live in?

Ask me again tomorrow?

What happens when a photographer set to live in the dark meets the doctor that lives in the light? What happens when our world collide? 

Elizabeth York is a new-to-me author, and after finishing this book I'm wondering why in the world I waited so long to read her work! This book will take you through varying degrees of emotions, there were times I found myself tearing up, laughing sometimes, and dashes of anger mixed in. I love the chemistry and interactions between Devan and Ian; they're both so rigid with their individual life paths, so seeing how their respective paths start deviating is great. I do think there could have been less book time given to the sub-plots, or at the least trim down the number of sub-plots to no more than two. Despite that, I would still recommend this book, and I will be going and purchasing 
Ms. York's previous books!

RELEASE BLITZ - Fighting for Redemption (The Elite: Book Four) by Nicole Flockton

Title: Fighting for Redemption
Series: The Elite: Book Four
Author: USA Today Bestselling Author, Nicole Flockton
Genre: Adult, Sports Romance
Published: May 23, 2017
From USA Today Bestselling Author, Nicole Flockton, the final book in The Elite Series.

Bad Boy Brett Hunter is on a downward spiral after a poor performance at the Rio Olympic Games. His sponsors are threatening to drop him and trouble seems to find him wherever he goes. He’s comfortable with his bad boy image, it’s what he deserves after what he’s done. The last thing he wants to do is change the public’s perception of him, but his agent tells him, change his image or lose his sponsors.

Cassandra Fielder doesn’t like working with diva athletes – she’s been there, done that and has the divorce decree to go with it. When she finds out her new client is Olympian Brett Hunter, for the first time in her career she wants to tell her boss no, unfortunately, saying no isn’t an option. What she isn’t prepared for is the unexpected attraction flaring between them. She has no plans to play on that particular field again. As she spends time with Brett, she begins to see there is more to him than what he shows the public. But why is he trying so hard to hang on to his bad boy image?

Being with Cassandra has Brett facing old foes and a past he is desperately trying to forget. When the truth comes out, a fledging love is put to the test. Can it survive or has trust been irrevocably shattered?

With this book, we finally get to know Brett; if you've read this series, Brett was publicly linked to Julia Ashland in the first book, and he's been in the public eye for all the wrong reasons lately. Enter Cassandra Fielder, PR extraordinaire and Brett is her newest, and seemingly the most volatile client. They've both got issues in their pasts that they're not willing to share.

Brett has been living with guilt for the last few years, and it's not revealed until midway through the book why he's harboring the guilt. So it makes sense that his recent behavior is subterfuge; if people only concentrate on the present, they won't look into his past and find out what he's been keeping secret.

What neither he nor Cassandra were anticipating was the chemistry between them, even though Cassandra does her best to remind herself that she's NOT attracted to him (yeah right lol), and that she wants nothing to do with another athlete. Only the heart wants who it wants. 

I like how this series wrapped up, and that we got to see how everything worked out not only for Brett and Cassandra, but also in regards to Mitch, Julia, Drake and Tamara.

USA Today Bestselling Author, Nicole Flockton writes sexy contemporary romances, seducing you one kiss at a time as you turn the pages. Nicole likes nothing better than taking characters and creating unique situations where they fight to find their true love.

Apart from writing Nicole is busy looking after her very own hero – her wonderfully supportive husband, and two fabulous kids. She also enjoys watching sports and, of course, reading.
