COVER REVEAL | TO HAVE AND TO HATE BY R.S. GREY

 

R.S. Grey’s next standalone rom-com, To Have and To Hate, is coming March 19th! Check it out today!

About To Have and To Hate:

Marry a man I barely know to save my family from ruin. It might’ve been simple, if my betrothed were anybody else.   On our wedding day, my husband-to-be arrived at the courthouse like a black cloud rolling over Manhattan. Walt didn’t crack smiles or pepper in pleasantries as we exchanged hollow vows in front of the judge.   His disdain for me was so palpable I assumed we’d walk out of that ceremony and resume our regularly scheduled programming. But then fate was like, Hold my beer. I got this.   In desperate need of help and with nowhere else to turn, I had no choice but to ignore a crucial rule in our contract: I shall only contact Mr. Jennings II in case of emergency. But hey, what’s a little fine print between husband and wife?   Turns out, Walt’s a stickler for legalese—I think it might be his love language. Oh, and his attitude at the courthouse wasn’t a put-on. My so-called husband is a jerk. He takes what he wants without giving any consideration to other people—specifically ME, his blushing, contractually-obligated bride!   I knew life with Walt would be no honeymoon, but a marriage of any sort should still come with a few standard guarantees:   To have and to hold. For richer or poorer. In sickness and in health. But after experiencing Walt’s version of wedded bliss, I say let’s forget about all that lovey-dovey crap and just take me straight to death do us part.

So why does he still leave her breathless?   Attorney Vincent Scott is a man of humble beginnings who has now made a name for himself running one of D.C.’s most prestigious law firms. When he’s handed a divorce case for the woman who left him back when he was a lowly car mechanic, he wants to refuse.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Vincent.” “Good evening, Evie.” The deep, rich rumble of his voice was like warm fingers caressing along the nape of her neck. Her entire body suddenly tingled. She grabbed her glass and sucked down every drop. “Evie?” “Um-hum.” “Given what happened today with Patrick, I thought I’d check on you. Are you home?” “I’m in bed. How about you? Are you in bed, Vinny?” She slapped a hand over her mouth. Why did I say that? And why the hell am I talking all low and husky? “Vinny?” He cleared his throat on a soft chuckle. “It’s been a long time since I’ve heard that.” “I-I mean, Vincent.” Shit. He hated the nickname, but she used to call him that in private when…when their hands and mouths touched and tasted, groped and licked. Evie, stop! “Yes, I’m in bed getting work done before I turn in. I wanted to send you some info I pulled together.” “What is it?” “I call it my war sheet—notes I typically write down on the attorney I’m going up against. In this instance, it’s a few bullet points on Patrick’s legal counsel—his strengths, weaknesses, case history, his wins and losses. The guy plays dirty. He’ll take everything he can get for his client down to the floorboards.” “Oh. Okay.” She didn’t know what to say. The act was so like him. “It should be in your inbox now. Anyway, just thought it might help your attorney prepare.” She quickly pulled up her email and opened the document. A few notes? There were two full pages of information. Even lines about Patrick’s actions today at the bakery. Appreciation and most of all, a strong sense of longing—the emotions washed over her, roiling like turbulent waves. She used to say he had the heart of a tiger and the soul of an angel. “Thank you.” “Well, I’ll let you go. Have a good night, Evie.” “You, too. Good night.” But she wasn’t ready to hang up.

FRIDAY READS #18 | A NIGHT LIKE THIS(SMYTHE-SMITH, #2) BY JULIA QUINN

 Book Beginnings is a book meme hosted by Rose City Reader where participants share the first sentence (or so) of the book, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the rules are quite simple: Grab a book, any book, turn to page 56 or 56% in your e-reader. Find any non-spoilery sentence(s) and post. 
Book Blogger Hop created by coffeeaddictedwriter, where each week the hop starts on a Friday and ends the following Thursday with a weekly prompt featuring some bookish question.
This week’s book: 




Goodreads Summary: 

Anne Wynter might not be who she says she is...

But she's managing quite well as a governess to three highborn young ladies. Her job can be a challenge—in a single week she finds herself hiding in a closet full of tubas, playing an evil queen in a play that might be a tragedy (or might be a comedy—no one is sure), and tending to the wounds of the oh-so-dashing Earl of Winstead. After years of dodging unwanted advances, he's the first man who has truly tempted her, and it's getting harder and harder to remind herself that a governess has no business flirting with a nobleman.

Daniel Smythe-Smith Might be in mortal danger...

But that's not going to stop the young earl from falling in love. And when he spies a mysterious woman at his family's annual musicale, he vows to pursue her, even if that means spending his days with a ten-year-old who thinks she's a unicorn. But Daniel has an enemy, one who has vowed to see him dead. And when Anne is thrown into peril, he will stop at nothing to ensure their happy ending...

BOOK BEGINNINGS:

"Winstead, you bloody cheat!" Daniel Smythe-Smith blinked. He was a little bit drunk, but he thought someone had just accused him of cheating at cards.

FRIDAY 56:
"She's already threatened to take me to the country for a week. For rest and recuperation."
He swallowed a chuckle. "She's concerned about you."
MY THOUGHTS:

I loved the first book and I'm currently reading this one and liking it as well! Julia Quinn is hilarious! I love the humor!
Book Blogger Hop
This week's question prompt is Do you share books? If so, do you have a system to keep track of whom you lend books to?
I did a few times in school and then I didn't have a proper collection of books and lost them, so when I started collecting books properly in college I never shared since then.

Which book features in your Friday Reads this week? Comment the links to your posts below, I would love to visit your blog!

When the daughter of the US Ambassador to Argentina is kidnapped in broad daylight on Christmas Eve, the FBI sends one of its best negotiators to investigate. Supervisory Special Agent Max Hawthorne arrives at an embassy thrown into chaos as US and local law enforcement hustle to track the young woman. Is this a simple kidnap for ransom, or part of a political agenda? Could it be something more sinister? Lucy Aston has something to hide. Preferring to stay in the shadows, the lowly, fashion-challenged office assistant resents being assigned to help Max. But Max can’t resist a puzzle…he’s starting to suspect Lucy Aston is not what she seems. When rumors emerge of a suspected Russian spy operating out of the embassy, Lucy’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble. As she and Max race to rescue the ambassador’s daughter, Lucy has to do whatever it takes to keep her cover from being blown—even if that means betraying the man she’s falling for.

Originally from a small town in Shropshire, England, Toni studied Marine Biology at University of Liverpool (B.Sc.) and University of St. Andrews (Ph.D.) with the intention she'd never be far from the ocean. Well, that plan backfired and she ended up in the Canadian prairies with her biology professor husband, two kids, a rescue dog, and a laid-back leopard gecko.

Her greatest achievements are mastering the Tokyo subway, climbing Ben Lomond, snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, and surviving fifteen Winnipeg winters (fingers crossed). She loves to travel for research purposes and was lucky enough to visit the Strategic Information and Operations Center inside FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C. in 2016. She also got to shove another (police) car off the road during pursuit training at the Writer’s Police Academy. Basically she has way too much fun!

LAST POST OF THE YEAR



Dear all,

2020 is now coming to an end, this year has been very difficult for everyone around the world but since we have reached the end of 2020, we can be grateful for our fortunes, families, health, happiness, we survived the global lowest point of our lives and thus we should applaud ourselves.

Reading wise my year wasn't so good if the quantity of the books is considered but it wasn't so bad because not only did I read good books this year, I came back to blogging regularly and started posting on bookstagram this month after taking an unusual-for-me months-long break there and I'm back to reading!


I have a little tradition of reading historical books in the last week of the year or the last day since 2014, and this year too, I'm reading Smythe-Smith series by Julia Quinn, just finished reading Just Like Heaven too!

So! I hope every fellow book blogger and everyone else is happy and healthy in the coming year, and we get to read more the most amazing books of our lives yet in the coming year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
