Baby I’m Yours written and self-published by Carrie Elks is available NOW in ebook, paperback and kindleunlimited format.

Book Blurb

Two tiny lines will change everything…

Doctor James Tanner is gorgeous, successful and decisively single.
He’s also a widower with a broken heart.
So when he meets a beautiful woman on a fateful night out, their chemistry shocks him to the core.

Harper Hayes is irresistible.
With her pink-tipped hair and tantalizing smile, she makes him forget all his pain.

One night together won’t hurt, will it?
One night to get her out of his system.
Then he’ll leave in the morning without a backward glance.

But actions have consequences, and this one will change both their lives forever.
And when Harper sees those two little lines she knows exactly what that means.
Now she just needs to find the man who left her alone in bed after their one night together.

What a shame she doesn’t even know his name…

Baby I'm Yours RELEASE DAY BLITZ-8

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes

I am so pleased to be involved in the Release Day Blitz for Baby I’m Yours; Book Five in the Angel Sands series by Carrie Elks.

Carrie Elks has a proven formula for delivering addictive, sweet, sexy stories that are unputdownable.  I’ve been blown away with this series that are all standalone stories set in a small town off the Californian coast called Angel Sands.  Although each story is centred around two fresh characters the friends we’ve learned to love from previous stories in the series do crop up and we then get to learn about the continuation of their journeys.  So, I would highly recommend reading the books in the series in order, maybe treat yourself to a binge read of the whole boxset to fill your heart with so much love and more.  The books in the series in order are:

  • Let Me Burn
  • She’s Like The Wind
  • Sweet Little Lies
  • Just A Kiss
  • Baby I’m Yours

Baby I’m Yours is Harper and James story and their story only began on a chance encounter; a meeting that gave James the opportunity to forget the hurt, forget the loneliness and to enjoy just for a few hours the feeling of life again.  But this chance collision of hearts that sizzled was to leave an everlasting mark on both Harper and James lives.  At the time of their union it was a meeting of two lonely souls with lust taking over and anonymity was the key.  So a few months later when events led back to that one night for this girl and this guy, who have both suffered greatly, they let fate give them a helping hand in finding a new happiness in their lives.

Carrie Elks has written such an emotive story in Baby I’m Yours that you’ll feel your heart breaking for both our girl and guy.  This is a story of finding light in a very dark tunnel and accepting that you are worthy of new beginnings and love.

An addictive, emotive story that will fill your heart with adoration.

Book Blurb

Beautiful, perfect and everything he needs.

Caitie Russell’s big brother is getting married. As the proud owner of Holiday Magic, Caitie is the obvious choice to organise the perfect Christmas wedding. Piece of cake, right?

If it weren’t for one gorgeous man-shaped problem…

Her brother’s best friend, Brecken Miller.

He was her first crush.

Her first kiss.

Her first broken heart…

Construction worker Brecken Miller is a modern-day Scrooge.

The confirmed bachelor would rather pull his nails out than celebrate Christmas, until he sees Caitie again.

Like a moth to a flame he’s drawn to her.

But there’s a problem with fire. It always leaves a scar.

Just A Kiss 4

I am pleased to be able to share an excerpt:

Excerpt 

When the door closed behind her for a second time, Caitie bit down a smile and slowly turned to look at Breck. He was leaning on the wall, arms folded across his chest, the skin at the corner of his eyes crinkling up as he smiled at her.

“Hello,” he said, his smile widening.

“Hi.”

She felt breathless as the air around them snapped and crackled. The hairs on her neck stood up. Breck slowly pushed off the wall and walked over to the sofa where she was standing, his strides long and confident.

Caitie didn’t move. She wasn’t even sure if she could. Her muscles were tense with anticipation, her skin tingling with need. There was a half-smile on his lips as he reached out for her chin, using the pads of his fingers to tip her face up.

“Cait…” His voice caressed her ears. She loved the way her name sounded on his lips.

“Did you know you’re the only one who calls me that?” she asked breathlessly.

“Do you mind?”

She shook her head slowly, his fingers still holding her. “No. I like it.” Too much.

He took another step forward, his eyes firmly on hers. “I like it, too,” he said. “The same way I like you.”

Her chest tightened. Standing so close to him felt overwhelming. She could smell the woody scent of his cologne, feel his firm touch as his fingers caressed her jaw. Everywhere she looked, all she saw was him.

“Where were we last week?” he asked her.

The corner of her lip quirked up. “Remind me?”

He chuckled and lowered his head until his lips were a breath away from hers. She could see the thickness of his eyelashes, the strong line of his nose, the warmth of his skin where it was kissed by the California sun.

“I think it was a little like this,” he murmured, brushing his lips against hers.

Book Blurb

He was the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. She was everybody’s princess. Ten years later, he’s back in town and this time he has something to prove.

Aiden Black never thought he’d return to the small beach town he grew up in. But as the new director of a luxury resort, he’s determined to make it a success. What he doesn’t expect is to run into an old flame, the girl that got away.

Single mom, Brooke Newton, cares about two things. Taking care of her son and helping out at the local animal shelter. Until she’s sent on a mission to save an endangered dog, and comes face to face with the only man she’s ever loved.

As soon as they meet, the attraction between them reignites. But Brooke has a secret – a big one – and she has no idea how to tell Aiden. As lies are exposed, and truths are told, they’re determined to take advantage of this second chance. It’s a shame not everyone in town has got the message…

sweet little lies poster

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

Sweet Little Lies is Book Three in the Angel Sands series and although each story is a standalone novel that focuses on one characters journey I would highly recommend reading all the books in the series in order as characters from previous books do crop up in each story and also you’ll be missing a treat of a series if you don’t get chance to read them all.  The books in the series are:

  • Let Me Burn
  • She’s Like the Wind
  • Sweet Little Lies

Once again, Carrie Elks has written an addictive, sexy story but what I’ve also found with the Angel Sands books is that there’s a real charm and homeliness about them.  Firstly, I think that this is down to the strong bond the girls have and secondly the setting of the novels based in a small coastal town in America that’s filled with sunshine, laughter and community spirit.

Sweet Little Lies is Brooke’s turn in the spotlight.  For eight years Brooke has worked hard as a single mom to her son Nick.  After discovering she was pregnant at 18 Brooke gave up college to look after her baby but now she’s back studying and working at the animal shelter all fitting around the care of her young child.  It’s been a long time since Brooke has experienced love and her heart felt broken for a long time following the sudden break-up with her then boyfriend.  But when the young boy Brooke fell in love with long ago returns to Angel Sands he’s no longer the young boy climbing trees and sneaking around to see her, he’s a strapping handsome, successful man that rocks her emotions just as much as he did years ago.  Brooke is shocked to see the return of Aiden Black she has so many questions for him regarding his sudden departure but Brooke is afraid to ask them as she’s kept a secret hidden from him that could destroy any hopes of any friendship resuming.

Aiden Black was dubious of returning to Angel Sands as he left many years ago under a dark cloud, he also felt like his heart had been crushed leaving Brooke.  Aiden always felt like Brooke could do better than him as Aiden was from a poorer family, his brother was notorious for being in trouble.  Brooke was the daughter of a well to do family and she’d had a privileged upbringing so their teenage love was kept hidden from prying eyes.

I adored Brooke and Aiden’s story as I particularly loved Brooke’s personality; the single mom with hopes and dreams for a career working with animals.  Brooke adored her son and the work at the animal shelter was her second love and these character strengths shone through Brooke’s personality.  Aiden’s characters had a vulnerability about him, he’d turned his life around and was back in his home town to prove to any cynics he’d done good.  However, Aiden couldn’t shake all the dirt from his history and once it caught up with him it would change his life and that of others.

A story with heart and soul that was addictively moreish.

Book Blurb

He’d be a fool to fall for his long-legged, barefoot employee. But bad decisions have never stopped him before…

Successful businessman and single father, Nate Crawford, doesn’t need any more complications. That’s why he’s moved his business – and his life – to a small beach town. He’s expecting sun, sea and tranquility, but what he gets is a whirlwind in the form of town sweetheart, Ally Sutton.

Ally’s used to dealing with heartache. But losing the café she’s owned for years is the final straw. Being offered a new job feels like a lifeline – that is until she meets her much-older, and impossibly handsome new boss.

In the space of a few weeks everything changes. And when an accident forces them closer, Nate and Ally can’t ignore the fascination between them any longer. But are they ready for the storm their relationship is about to unleash?

**She’s Like the Wind is the second book in the Angel Sands series, set in a small beach town on the California coast. If you like a heartwarming read that’s low on angst and big on feels, this stand-alone romance is for you.**

Shes Like the Wind Teaser 1

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

Firstly, I’d like to wish Carrie Elks a Happy Publication Day for She’s Like The Wind and thank her for an arc copy of her novel.

Carrie Elks certainly knows how to write heart-stopping, delicious romances and with Book Two in the Angel Sands series: She’s Like The Wind, the author teases our heart with a romance that awakens the hearts desire to feelings the recipients struggle to accept that they are worthy of.

Ally Sutton has lived in Angel Sands all her life and has been running her father’s beachside café for many years but when she learns he’s sold the café from underneath her she feels very hurt and betrayed.

Nate Crawford is hoping his move to Angel Sands will be a new start for him and his teenage daughter Riley with the purchase of the café which included the proviso of keeping Ally Sutton in employment.  Riley is struggling emotionally with the new start and with the struggles of coping with the recent bereavement of her mother.  Her life has changed so much in the last few months and she’s very angry with her father for dragging her miles away to a different state.  Nate’s love life has also suffered when his responsibilities are questioned.

Renovating and rebranding the café is Nate’s new project and he’s very keen for his brand to transfer successfully to this coastal location.  Nate was eager to train his new staff himself but his first introduction to Ally Sutton, the manager of the former café, is met with distain.  Although Nate and Ally’s first impressions were guarded a truce is met and friendship soon blossoms.

When unexpected events bring Nate and Ally closer their friendship soon develops into a desire that is too hard to resist but will the pair be able to let their hearts be free to love again?

This is a story of new beginnings for many, it’s also a story of the relationships between a father and a daughter coping after tragedy.

She’s Like The Wind is another fabulous story from Carrie Elks with a romance that sizzles.

I’d like to share a quote from the novel that I particularly adored:

Looking at her was like looking into the sun.  He was almost certain he was going to get burned.

She isn’t looking for love. He’s not planning on staying around. But when they meet, sparks fly…
As a big city firefighter, Lucas lives for his job. Forced to take extended leave following an accident, he returns to his small hometown to stay at the beach cottage his grandparents left him. The problem is, he’s not used to having so much time on his hands.
After a broken engagement, Ember isn’t ready for love right now. Though her heart might be mended, she prefers to keep herself busy with her family and work; that way she won’t get hurt again. But she didn’t count on meeting a handsome firefighter with that dimpled smile. After Lucas saves her from one awkward situation too many, she can’t stop thinking about him.
Ember finds Lucas impossible to resist. And he’s determined not to let her. As long summer days melt into sultry, passionate nights what begins as a fling develops into something much deeper. Until the day Ember’s ex-fiancé returns to town and threatens to destroy the fragile connection that’s building between them.

let me burn quote

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

I am so pleased to be involved in the Release Blitz for Let Me Burn, book one in Carrie Elks new contemporary romance series; Angel Sands.  I’d like to thank the author for providing me with an arc in return for an honest review.

Carrie Elks is known for writing contemporary romances with a sexy edge and Let Me Burn didn’t fail to have you a little hot under the collar.  This is a story of two people; one that has been burned by love and is still healing and the other who is afraid to let love in as they fear for the work life balance.

From the moment you read about Lucas Russell, totally committed and hardworking fireman, with his brooding good looks, you can sense there’s a serious side to his nature and also a vulnerability that he’s afraid to let it be shown.  Being forced to take time off his hectic schedule and give his body and mind time to rest Lucas goes back to his home town, Angel Sands, and decides to start the renovations to a cottage on the beach front that was left to him and his sister by their late grandparents.  Angel Sands is such a different atmosphere to his normal everyday life in the city, for starters everyone in this small beach resort know each other and if they don’t the village ‘grapevine’ will soon help you out.

Ember Kennedy is still grieving for the two most important men in her life; her father and her ex.  She’s been holding up strong especially for her mother who’s emotions are still very raw.  Ember was burned so badly with her ex and wasn’t looking for love but when she keeps bumping into Lucas Russell the instant attraction is difficult to resist.

I loved this romance by Carrie Elks, we were treated to a lovely community spirit within the tranquil and idyllic location of Angel Sands.  The attraction building up between Ember and Lucas was like a slow burning flame that stayed strong and bright.  The storyline was charming in places but emotions were keenly felt when life grew serious for the pair.

A gorgeous, sexy story and a great start to a hotly anticipated new series.
