Blog Tour & Review: Keeping King by Anne Jolin




KEEPING KING
Author: Anne Jolin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Rock Falls #4 
~ SYNOPSIS ~
***Can be read as a standalone or as part of the Rock Falls series.***

Peyton Callaghan is a fighter, a survivor, a warrior. When it was kill or be killed, she didn’t hesitate. Now, she’s the only one left standing, haunted by the ghost of a dead man and plagued with the guilt of having taken another person’s life. The upheaval of her life to start over in Rock Falls has been rocky at best, her worst nightmares and wildest desires colliding with each other. Terror tortures her nightly, breeding fear inside her dreams, and in every waking moment, she fights against the lust that threatens to drown her. 

Jayden King harbors secrets beneath his outward playboy demeanor. The women who warm his bed lay claim to nothing—you can’t lay claim to someone who doesn’t have a heart. His wit and charm are exquisite means of deflection and distraction from the turmoil roaring inside him. He’s hidden in plain sight, a mask of humor keeping the sadness at bay. The only real reflections of his soul are in the artwork he creates, pieces of him muraled on the skin of others. If tattoo artists could have a calling card, the etch of pain and suffering in each design would be his. Because when the lights go out and the women he’s satisfied have gone home, he’s alone with every fear he refuses to face.

After suffering from a brutal attack at the hands of her roommate’s stalker, Peyton is forced to live with the object of her affection. Without intention, she breathes love into his starved heart, and although the mere thought of that terrifies him, Jayden would burn the city down to keep her safe, causalities be damned. 

Some people you have. Some people you hold. 

She can have him. She can hold him. But can she keep King? Or is it impossible for Callaghan to keep something that was never really hers to begin with?
Candi's 5* Review:
OMG I loved this book!!! After finishing book 3 I couldn't wait to get my hands on Jay and Peyton's story. Each book in this series can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading from book one first. Trust me...you will love all the characters in this series!!

For the past two years Peyton has secretly crushed on Jay but never imagined he felt the same. Jay has been attracted to Peyton from the moment he lays eyes on her but he doesn't feel worthy of anyone's love after losing his high school sweetheart. Both are suffering from a horrible past...would they be able to help each other heal or are some things to hard to forgive?? When Peyton's past resurfaces can Jay keep her safe before it's to late??

Gahhhhh that ending!!!! Are you kidding me?!?! I need Jackson's book now!!! I loved Colt as well so my fingers are crossed we will get a book on him soon as well. I mean come on....he deserves to be happy as well. He was such a great and wonderful friend to Peyton. Amazing job Anne!!! I am so in love with this series and these hot alpha males!! A definite one click series!!!

CHASING RHODES
Author: Anne Jolin
Genre:  Romance | Erotica
Series: Rock Falls Series #1

~ SYNOPSIS ~
Hannah Rhodes has just gotten out of a long term relationship, and she isn't looking for a new man in her life. But after a night out with the girls and one too many tequila shots, her plans to stay man free are blown all to hell. She finds herself in bed with the smoldering stranger from a party six months back and immediately knows she's in trouble, big trouble. And the last thing Hannah needs is more trouble.

Her last relationship took her out like an emotional freight train, and she’s trying to piece back the stability her life once had.

Greyson Holt’s biggest fear in life is to end up like his father, like the man who left him as a child, and broke his mother’s heart. He vowed to never be responsible for that kind of carnage. Men could be cruel and that kind of brutality was in his blood. He never allows himself to get too close to anyone, until he meets Hannah.

Something about her makes him want to try, but a man can’t change overnight.

Will Holt be able to catch Rhodes every time he lets her go? Or will their chase end in heartbreak?
Candi's 5* Review:
After Hannah and her boyfriend Jackson break up the last thing she is looking for is to find herself back in another relationship but once she lays eyes on the sexy stranger she can't deny the instant connection between them.  photo PicMonkeyCollage-15.jpg

Greyson Holt....HOLLLLYY SWOOON!!! He is a sweet, sexy, protective alpha male who is covered in tattoos and did I mention he is a Charlie Hunnam look-a-like!!!! Greyson struggles with the demons of his past but there is something about Hannah that draws him in and when he is with her he feels like he is at home.

"Being with you is like coming home, Hannah. When I look at you I fell peace"

Do yourself a favor and grab a fan before you start reading because trust me when I say you will need it. Once things between Hannah and Greyson heat up...they will get HOTTTTT!!!!

When the one person who has the power to destroy Greyson returns back to town will he let the demons of his past destroy the happiness and love he has with Hannah? Will Hannah keep her promise to always fight for Greyson no matter what?

OMG I absolutely loved this book and once I started reading I was hooked!! There was no putting it down till I reached the end and even then I wanted more!!

CHOOSING HENLEY
Author: Anne Jolin
Series: Book Two in the Rock Falls Series
Genre: Romance | Erotica 

~ SYNOPSIS ~
Lennon Montgomery is scared. Absolutely scared shitless of love.

When the floor fell out from underneath her perfect childhood, it shattered her ability to trust. The one man in her life who was genetically programmed to love her left her. Since then, she’s allowed men into her bed and even into her life, but never into her heart. 

Until him. 

Jamison Henley has never wanted a woman for longer than it takes him to make a guitar. He’s content living his life and loving only three things: making guitars, cooking great food, and Martha, his black pit bull. He never chases women, and he’s never had to. 

Until her.

One night together changes everything. There’s no going back to the way it was before. 

She doesn’t want to want him, but she does. 

He knows he wants her, but he can’t have her. 

Will Montgomery take the leap of faith in choosing Henley? Or will her fear cripple their chance at a happily ever after?

Candi's 5* Review:
After reading book one I just couldn't wait to get my hands on Jamison and Lennon's book. You first meet them both in book one and can see the instant connection and chemistry between the two but you also learn that a relationship is the last thing Lennon ever wants, but why? The one man who she should have always been able to rely on and run to left when she was just 13 years old so she stands by her rule of never letting a man close to her heart again. Once she meets Jami he begins to crack those tight build walls around her heart. He wants Lennon more than he has ever wanted anything else in his life. On New Years he makes a promise to her that within one years time he will earn her love and trust but will he succeed? Will Lennon ever let Jami in? Will they ever get the happily ever after they both deserve or will fate have other plans in store for them?

Jami......sigh! Holy Swoon!! Ladies, be ready to fall and fall hard.

"You are the love I never saw coming until you'd already stolen my heart. You are who I want to go to bed next to every night and wake up next to every morning. I want to spend every day for the rest of my life making you smile. I want our children to have your laugh and I want to love you until the day I die."

OMG I am absolutely loving this series and can't wait to read the next book! After that snippet with Beth I am on pins and needles. Will she find her prince charming and get her own happily ever after?

BREAKING BENNETT 
Author: Anne Jolin 
Genre: Romance/Erotica
Series: Rock Falls Series, Book 3 
~ SYNOPSIS ~
Beth Rhodes has always had a game plan. Go to college. Get the perfect job. Get the perfect guy. Get the happily ever after she's always wanted. It is just her luck that everything falls into its precise place in her life. At least it seems that way until her blueprints go up in smoke. She loses the job she loves and her price charming is turning out to be the villain of her fairytale instead. With failures and mistakes piling up on her doorstep, she knows something has to give—or she could very well end up paying for those mistakes with her life.

Braxton Bennett is lethal, both in the courtroom and in the ring. Two sides of him constantly wage war against one another, and to keep the internal bloodshed at bay, he allows himself to indulge in his violent vice. Suit by day and brawler by night aren’t easy dual lives to manage for a man of his status. The only way to do so is by following a strict set of rules—rules he won’t break for anyone. But what if he already has?

On a summer night in the depths of the city, a chance encounter will turn both of their perfectly constructed worlds upside down.

Will they battle together against all odds to break Bennett’s rules? Or will Rhodes tap out to save herself before the fight is over?
Candi's 5* Review:
OMG this series just keeps getting better and better!!! I so love Greyson and Jami but Braxton.....HOLLLLYYY SWOON!!! Anne Jolin def knows how to make it difficult to pick your favorite book boyfriend. Each of these books can be read as a standalone but trust me, you will def want to start with book 1 and get the back history on all these amazing couples.

Near the end of book 2 you meet Beth's boyfriend Kyle who is a total jerk and douchebag but with this book you will learn just how horrible he truly is. When Beth finds herself in serious trouble its Brax who comes to her rescue and becomes her knight in shining armour but all to quickly he disappears.

A month later she runs into her Cinderella Man once again but will it be the reunion she has been dreaming of? When her past continues to haunt her will Braxton become her white knight once again?

I absolutely LOVE Beth and Braxton together!! These two are so hotttt!! I was on the edge of my seat at the end but thankfully everything will wrap up beautifully!! I also love that for a certain someone Karma comes back as a real "B"

Amazing job Anne Jolin!!! I can't wait to get my hands on Peyton and Jay's story!!

~ ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~ 
Anne Jolin
I’m twenty four years old. I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside of Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns and riding in trucks. I’ve been married to my handsome redneck husband for a year and we are parents to our chocolate fur baby, Bear. No kiddo’s yet! I am completely and utterly obsessed with country music, you will constantly find me stalking iTunes. If you don’t find me on iTunes, you’ll find me on Netflix because I am a self proclaimed movie junkie. Yes, that means that I quote them constantly in daily conversation and my characters do too! You couldn’t keep me away from a good action movie if you tried. I’m also a planning nut. I love to plan parties, events, trips – you name it! I don’t know if that’s considered a real hobby, but it is for me. 

We were fortunate enough to travel a lot as a family growing up, and I think that helped spark my love of reading. I’m half Viking, my mom is Danish, and her entire side of the family still lives in Denmark. We’d visit them almost once a year, every year and it’s a nine hour flight. That’s a lot of uninterrupted time to read (or in my parent’s case, entertain four children – Yikes!). Somewhere along the way my love of reading, became a love of writing. I wrote short stories when I was younger, and although I majored in Business Management at college, I took as many English electives I could get my hands on. 

During the day I work at my family construction company wearing a variety of different hats and at night, I write! I had never thought about writing books before, but after a few suggestions that I should try, I decided to give it a go. I loved it instantly! Having always been a creative person, it felt amazing to harness all that energy and use it to tell a story. Now, quite frankly it’s all I can think about, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m grateful to have developed my love of reading into a passion for writing. You’ll be seeing many more books from me in the future!
