RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - Spicy Spring Fling by Gwyn McNamee & Christy Anderson

Title: Spicy Spring Fling
Authors: Gwyn McNamee & Christy Anderson
Genre: Small Town Romantic Comedy
Release Date: March 16, 2023
Cover Design: Bookin' It Designs

Bobby Sweet is a legend in the kitchen.
Rumor is, he really knows how to handle an eggplant.
It’s the entire reason I’m here writing this article about him for the paper.
But I keep having to remind myself to stay professional.
Because things are really heating up in his kitchen.
And the rumors are true.
Bobby’s eggplant is something to behold.
Exactly what I’ve been craving.
It makes my mouth water…
Along with other parts of me…
The only question is, will I be able to handle all of it?
I can certainly try.
A spicy spring fling with the hot chef may be just what I need…

Enjoy this stand-alone hot and dirty insta-lust romantic comedy filled with vegetable and kitchen shenanigans from USA Today Bestselling Authors Gwyn McNamee and Christy Anderson.

This was a quick, fun and sexy read from start to finish. Who doesn't love a man that knows his way around a kitchen and can whip up a fantastic dish whose main ingredient is a prominently sized aubergine? There's no denying the chemistry between Bobby and Ashley, especially with the sly innuendos being thrown all around. I will say that I was glad to find out Bobby's secret ingredient for his spicy mousska (just might have to try it and see how well it can amp up an already delicious recipe). This is all insta-love but it's so much fun I was actually disappointed that it ended as soon as it did.

Gwyn McNamee is an attorney, writer, wife, and mother (to one human baby and two fur babies). Originally from the Midwest, Gwyn relocated to her husband’s home town of Las Vegas in 2015 and is enjoying her respite from the cold and snow. Gwyn has been writing down her crazy stories and ideas for years and finally decided to share them with the world. She loves to write stories with a bit of suspense and action mingled with romance and heat.

When she isn’t either writing or voraciously devouring any books she can get her hands on, Gwyn is busy adding to her tattoo collection, golfing, and stirring up trouble with her perfect mix of sweetness and sarcasm (usually while wearing heels).

Gwyn is the author of The Hawke Family series, The Slip Series, The Deadliest Sin Series, The Inland Seas Series, The Supernatural Love Stories in the Absurd (written as her alter-ego, DP Payne), and several stand-alone novels.

Writing with a whole lot of sarcasm and humor, mixed with a bit of Southern charm, Christy Anderson ain't no sweet tea kinda storyteller. As an author of romance, Christy believes it doesn't always have to be hearts and flowers; sometimes, it is dark and twisted, but romance nonetheless. She mixes terror, revenge, and a sliver of love and hope into stories about family, friends, struggles, blurred lines, and happily-ever-afters. Christy lives in the beautiful mountains of Eastern Tennessee with her husband and 152 cats (not really, but close), where she enjoys writing one twist at a time. Christy loves to hear from her readers, and here’s where you can find her:

BLOG TOUR & REVIEW - Give It a Whirl by Kayt Miller

Title: Give it a Whirl
Author: Kayt Miller
Genre: Contemporary Romance/New Adult Romance
Release Date: February 23, 2023
Cover Design: Linda Dainty

“I can already tell I will read it again … plus size adorable heroine and gorgeous moody hero. Love!” ★★★★★ Amazon Review

**Slow Burn Alert**
Need a romance with a nice, slow burn? This friends-to-lovers story is the one for you! If you don't, maybe this one will change your mind because Matilda and Alec, well, they're perfect for each other. Perfectly opposite and perfect friends, until they're not. Happy Reading!

Matilda Conklin is always a personal attendant, never a bride. Even in her favorite cousin's wedding, she's been relegated to errand running. No matter, Matilda is able to see the bright side of things. Not because she's an eternal optimist, although, that helps.

Nope. It's because she understands how short life is and that there's no use whining about stupid stuff like terrible maids-of-honor or how she has to learn the waltz to please her cousin.

Matilda knows there's always a silver lining. This one just happens to be muscled and six-feet-tall plus of silver lining.

Alec Marchesani can't dance. Nor does he want to. Ever. But, here he is, forced by his stupid brother to learn the waltz.

The waltz! The only bright spot in this entire sh*t show is the quirky girl next to him. She's a bit too sunshiny for Alec––you know, too optimistic—but that's okay. She's funny, and if there's one thing Alec Marchesani needs in his life, it's some funny.

Maybe learning the waltz won’t be so bad.

Another entertaining and fun story, I enjoyed the evolution of an unexpected friendship between Matilda and Alec that evolved into something more but I have to admit that there are quite a few side characters I wanted to throat-punch into the next dimension.

One thing I like about Kayt Miller’s stories is that the characters are people we could encounter on any given day, down to earth and dealing with everyday, realistic problems. Alec definitely embodies the whole “grumpy” persona, but the more he gets to know Matilda, the more we get to see how sweet and caring he is. Matilda is the “sunshine” to Alec’s grumpiness, and while there were plenty of times she didn’t really stick up for herself, there were a few moments where we got the chance to see her assertiveness.

As for the secondary characters, they all need to kick rocks because they are nothing but bullies towards Matilda, but for me, it was Alec’s brothers and their treatment towards Matilda had my blood pressure spiking, but we really don’t get an explanation as to why they have a healthy dose dislike for her.

Kayt grew up in the midwest surrounded by a loving family, which included three brothers, one sister, and parents who always fostered her creative side.

She wrote her first book when she couldn’t find a story about a certain type of a woman and a specific kind of man. She called it “Game Changer,” and in couldn’t have been a more appropriate title. It changed her life in many ways.

Her author goal is to write stories that romance readers can relate to, while making readers laugh and sometime shed a tear or two. Kayt hopes her readers can escape into a fantasy, one that’s actually possible.

Sure, some of the stories are dubbed “insta-love,” but that’s okay. She fell in love with her husband pretty damn fast and with her daughter the second she saw her.
