Blog Tour and Review- Unspoken Words by K.M. Golland

UW - BT banner

This is a story of unspoken words and how loud they can be.

Unspoken Words, “a wonderful story of first love, first heartbreak” from K.M. Golland is available now!

Unspoken Words - E-Cover

Connor Bourke and I met when we were twelve years old. He was a quiet boy with so much to say and only one way to say it—through song. He’d lost his best friend to cancer, so I showed him there was love and life in loss, and to hold on to his memories, always.
Eloise Mitchell was a blazing fire when my world turned dark. She’d shined so bright and burned so fierce that the wall I’d built around myself simply melted to the ground at her feet.
We shared everything together:
Our first kiss,
first love,
first mistake,
and first regret.
She taught me to speak,
to forgive,
and to never forget.
Through his music, he could say all he needed to say except for, ‘I love you’.
I could never tell her those three words.
Yet, I knew he meant them, that he loved me beyond all measure, beyond time
… beyond a broken heart.
I loved her more than anything.
Our bond was unbreakable.
Our love was ever after.
But, then, we tend to destroy the ones we love most.
And all bonds break, especially when the heart is what holds them together.

RENEE'S REVIEW

5 OF THE BIGGEST STARS IN THE UNIVERSE!

My #1 Book for 2019!

I have been a HUGE fan of KM for many years. Ever since I was asked to review her first book, Temptation. Since then, I don't have to know what her books are about to want to read them. She's just that author for me. If her name is on it, SIGN. ME. UP!
She draws me in with her addictive storylines, witty lingo, and staying true to her Aussie self.

Unspoken Words was no different, but at the same time, it was. 
In the best way.

We meet Connor and Eloise as young kids, who connect when Connor was at his lowest, having lost his best friend. We follow them through friendship, through their young love, through their heartbreaking times and through their all consuming love for each other. Each part more intense than the last. Now let me tell you, it was INTENSE!

KM delivered the most beautiful, yet soul crushing story I have ever read! 
It is perfectly bitter sweet. 

I turned that final page with tears streaming down my face and what felt like an elephant sitting on my chest. This book left me and emotional mess and physically hurting to the point where I messaged KM and told her that I hate her. In that moment I think I did. I mean, how dare she put me through that! But I don't really hate her. I love her. I love her words, I love her mind, and I love how she was able to make me feel every single emotion, even the shitty ones.    
Only the best writers can.

So grab a box of tissues to wipe those tears, both happy and sad, get this book, and snuggles up and dive in. You won't regret it. KM might, with the amount of threats of violence that are sure to come her way. Don't actually hurt her though, we need her to keep writing her amazing words.



Unspoken Words - Get burned

Excerpt
“Eloise.” Connor’s hand shot out and clasped mine. “Don’t leave.” “Please let go. I can’t stay here right now. I need air.” He didn’t quite chuckle but waved his hand at the space around us instead. “There’s plenty of air.” “Yeah, but you’re stealing it,” I choked out, unable to hold back my tears. “You’re always stealing my air.” “What are you talking about?” “You!” I shrugged out of his clasp so that I could point my trembling finger at him. “You breathe air into me and then you steal it, and I’m left gasping. Why do you do that? Why can’t you just let me breathe with you?” Connor’s wide eyes searched mine, darting from side to side like a ball in a pinball machine. He looked so lost and helpless, and stupid, so I elaborated. “Every second we are together, I feel alive. Every kiss, every touch, every unspoken word breathes life into me and I tether myself to it, afraid to let go. But then you refuse to tell me how you truly feel with the words you were given, words I know you can damn well say and choose not to, and it sucks that air right back out of me, and I … I can’t breathe.” He closed his eyes, his shoulders sagging. “Why’s it so hard for you to say?” Connor didn’t respond. He just kept his eyes pressed shut, as if I weren’t even there, and it ripped me in two. “JUST SAY IT,” I shouted. “Just tell me you love me. I know you do.” “If you know I do then why do you need to hear it?” “Because some words mean so much. Some words need to be heard and spoken.” “Not those.” “Of course those. They’re the most important three words anyone can say.” “No, baby, you’re wrong.” Connor opened his eyes, grasped my arms, and pulled me to sit on his lap, securing me tightly, his finger tracing a heart over my own. “My love for you goes beyond what words can say and do, so yeah, I choose not to say them. Those three words are empty where we’re concerned.” I sobbed. “But I need to hear them.” “You don’t,” he whispered, pressing his palm over my heart and placing my palm over his, the pressure firm, both of our hands unmoving. “Do you feel that?” A reverberating beat travelled through my body into his and from his into mine, our pressed hands a bridge, one beginning where one ended. We begin where we end. What I’d written in my notebook before we made love hit me like a truck, and I jolted and gasped. “What, Eloise? What’s wrong?” “I get it.” “Get what?” “I get that you don’t want to say what you feel or that some words to you are empty. I get that, deep down, we don’t need words to prove our love, that what’s in here,” I said, massaging my fingers into his chest, “and here,” I added, twitching my other hand over my breast, “speak for us.” A small smile crept across his face. “But,” I continued, “words mean a lot to me. You know that. They’re not empty where I’m concerned. They could never be empty.” He sucked in a deep breath and let it out slowly. “If you want words so desperately, I’ll give you words. But they’ll be my words. No one else’s.” “All I’ve ever wanted was your words, Connor Burke.” “Okay,” he said, cupping my face. “You’re. My. Ever. After.” A tear spilled down my cheek. They weren’t the words I’d expected him to say and, yet, to him, they meant more. They meant always and forever. They were perfect. Sinking into his arms, I let Connor cradle me for what felt like an eternity, and I realised in that moment that an eternity with him would never be long enough, that always and forever was too short.

Blog Tour w/ Review - This Earl of Mine by Kate Bateman




This Earl of Mine by Kate Bateman



Summary:

Introducing the Bow Street Bachelors—men who work undercover for London’s first official police force—and the women they serve to protect. . .and wed?

Shipping heiress Georgiana Caversteed is done with men who covet her purse more than her person. Even worse than the ton’s lecherous fortune hunters, however, is the cruel cousin determined to force Georgie into marriage. If only she could find a way to be . . . widowed? Georgie hatches a madcap scheme to wed a condemned criminal before he’s set to be executed. All she has to do is find an eligible bachelor in prison to marry her, and she’ll be free. What could possibly go wrong?

Benedict William Henry Wylde, scapegrace second son of the late Earl of Morcott and well-known rake, is in Newgate prison undercover, working for Bow Street. Georgie doesn’t realize who he is when she marries him—and she most certainly never expects to bump into her very-much-alive, and very handsome, husband of convenience at a society gathering weeks later. Soon Wylde finds himself courting his own wife, hoping to win her heart since he already has her hand. But how can this seductive rogue convince brazen, beautiful Georgie that he wants to be together…until actual death do they part?


Review Blitz - Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward










DIRTY LETTERS IS LIVE!
A Contemporary Romance Novel
New York Times Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward



BLURB
I’d never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet.



Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldn’t have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break.



Until one day it did.



Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one—one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing.



Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person.



Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more—more Griff, in the flesh—so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love.



 But what I found could change everything.
