BLOG TOUR: Black Tangled Heart by Samantha Young








"Readers are in for a thrilling and emotional ride with this one! The storyline is engrossing, the characters are complex, and the chemistry is off-the-charts palpable. It's my favorite book by Samantha Young to date." -- K.A. Tucker, international bestselling author of The Simple Wild


Black Tangled Heart, by New York Times bestselling author Samantha Young, is LIVE!


To my siblings, Jane was a friend. A pseudo-sister, the girl we grew up with.

To me? She was everything.

Our passion consumed us.

When our world fell apart, I thought our love would be the thing that held us together. 

She was the love of my life. But she abandoned me when I needed her most.

And I’ll never forgive her.

For years I’ve been planning my revenge against the people who took everything from me. 

Jane won’t be an exception. I’m coming for her. 

She knows it. 

She says she wants to help me serve my version of justice on the people who hurt me. 

I’ll let her.

She probably thinks it will save her from me. 

It won’t.

I stared dully at my painting. My creative mood had left the building, under the weight of the many questions going around and around in my head. Adrenaline made it hard for me to sit still. Cursing Jamie under my breath, I grabbed my laundry basket and headed toward the front door. Peering through the peephole, I double-checked his door was shut before I left my apartment. Glowering at his door as I passed, I hurried downstairs. How the hell had he maneuvered himself into my building? And why?

To my gratitude, the laundry room was empty as I crashed around inside it. I hauled out my stash of detergent and softener from my allocated locker and started separating my whites. That rat bastard. My heart raced, sweat gathered under my arms, and it agitated me. An encounter with Jamie was the equivalent of fifteen shots of caffeine.

And I hated that he knew I was lying to Asher. Something he could easily hold over my head.

“You are a very angry laundry doer.”

Jamie’s deep, rich voice startled me. Trying to control my breathing, I glared over at him standing in the doorway. Arms and ankles crossed as he leaned casually against the jamb. He wore a T-shirt and jeans. Nothing had changed there.

He was still the sexiest man I’d ever seen.

God, I hate him.

“What the hell are you doing in this building?” I turned my back on him, marching over to the stacked washers and dryers.

“I had no idea you lived here,” he lied, his voice growing closer as he crossed the room toward me.

Attempting not to react physically, to not hunch my shoulders in tension, I stared unseeing at the machines. What was I in the middle of doing again?

“What a surprise to find out you’re my neighbor.”

I snorted in disbelief and turned around, shocked to find him already in my personal space. “Liar.” I dragged my gaze insolently down his body and back up. “Move away. And I mean that in more ways than one.”

“Oh, does my presence bother you?” His wicked smile caused somersaults in my belly. 

“What are you doing here?” I ignored his proximity. Okay, I tried to ignore his proximity.

In answer, he stepped into me and I stumbled against the machines at my back. Jamie pressed the palms of his hands on the dryer, caging me in. My breath caught and held as his scent flooded me. That dark, earthy scent was enticing, and my body betrayed my emotions.

Feeling panic rise, I pushed at his chest, but he wouldn’t budge. “Jamie?” 

Those ocean eyes wandered over my face, cold, calculating. “He doesn’t know who I am. You haven’t told him.”

I lowered my hands. Touching him was even more discombobulating. “No.”

He bent his head toward mine until our noses almost touched. I sucked in a breath. “I wonder why you’re keeping it from him?”

Determined not to let him see how much he affected me, I glared up at him. He’d only have to touch me, hold my hand, to realize I was trembling. His face was so familiar. His lips were lips I’d thought I’d kiss for the rest of my life. Why did the pain of it never dull? Why did it still feel like a shard of glass through my chest? “Did you leak those tapes of Foster Steadman to Asher’s mom?”

Something menacing flashed in his eyes before he banked it. “And if I did?”

“Are you being smart, Jamie?”

“Are you asking out of concern for me or for your billionaire boy toy?”

“Jamie.”

“Never mind. I don’t care.” The bastard dipped his nose to my throat, and I tensed against the stacked machines. He inhaled, his nose brushing my skin, and my fingers bit into the washer behind me. “You smell different,” he whispered, lifting his head to my ear. “Expensive perfume. You’ve come up in the world.”

I felt his breath caress my skin seconds before his teeth touched my earlobe. Gasping, I instinctively pushed my palms against his stomach as he bit down hard, causing a flush of heat between my legs.

With a dark chuckle, Jamie released my ear after one last nibble and whispered, “Is he the jealous type, Jane?”

BRILLIANT... CAPTIVATING... INTENSE...PASSIONATE...This book had me in twisted knots all the way through.
I literally couldn’t put it down.
I had to wait to write my review once my head and emotions settled... just wow!!!

I was so excited to dive into this new book from Samantha Young. I’ve truly enjoyed this series and has an idea of what I thought this book would be like..
Well excuse me.. this book was nothing like I expected.. it blew me away!! (Not to say my idea of it wouldn’t have blown me away.. just that it was not what I expected)
You are captivated with the relationships in this book.. truly so caught up emotionally with these characters.
I felt everything Jane went through and the relationships she had truly had her shine as a character. So complex and dynamic. I won’t do details but I will say.. she is amazing...such growth from her.. I love her!!
Jamie.. oh my.. HOLY FREAKING WOW!! The first half of this book was FIRE!! He is the epitome of a book boyfriend and I think he has bumped some of the others off their pedestals.. *swoon*
But when I said this book was nothing like I expected Samantha Young threw a curve ball and amped up my anxiety while reading. By this point, I was hunkered down and had to finish.. I HAD TO KNOW..
My only regret is I am now done and I feel such a loss for having to leave these characters..
Samantha Young did a fabulously ingenious job with this story.. These characters are a part of me and I may even say this is my favorite book by Samantha Young..
I’m still thinking about it.. feeling that draw to still be with these characters..
I highly recommend that you read this one!!
And you do not have to read the others in this series to read this one.. stand alone..

WILD AT HEART by KA Tucker


From the internationally bestselling author of The Simple Wild comes the continuation of a woman’s journey to the Alaskan wild and a life she never imagined for herself.

Calla Fletcher returns to Toronto a different person, struggling to find direction and still very much in love with the rugged bush pilot she left behind. So, when Jonah arrives on her doorstep with a proposition she can’t dismiss, she takes the leap and rushes back to Alaska to begin their exciting future together.

But Calla soon learns that even the best of intentions don’t always lead to the intended outcomes, and that compromise comes with a hefty price tag—and a log cabin in rural Alaska that feels as isolating as the Western tundra.

With Jonah gone more than he’s home, one neighbor who insists on transforming her into a true Alaskan, and another who seems more likely to shoot her than come to her aid, Calla grapples with forging her own path. In a world where with roaming wildlife and harsh environmental challenges, just stepping foot outside her front door becomes daunting some days.

Leaving her to wonder if perhaps she is doomed to follow in her mother’s fleeing footsteps after all.




Oh wow!! Truly amazing!!

The Simple Wild, book 1 to Wild at Heart, was an emotional and just overall phenomenal book. It left us at the end wanting so much more...HOPES of a romance between two characters that you loved to watch argue and then loved to see them explode off the page with their intense chemistry.

And then VOILA!! KA Tucker gives us the best thing ever..the sequel to The Simple Wild..
AHHH!!!
Wild at Heart picks up right where we leave Calla and Jonah the end of The Simple Wild. We are over the moon happy because they literally can't live without each other..

I cannot tell you how many times I die from swoon in this book. Jonah has completely captured my heart and I am going to go on record now and say that he is my favorite book boyfriend from KA Tucker.. Gah... I just want to reread and reread this book just so I can keep reading about him...*swoons*

But don't mistake me here. I love Calla too! She changes so much throughout this book and I enjoyed seeing each moment bring her in to her own.
The relationship with her and Jonah is truly magical. While it is so real, it is also so full of love and thoughtfulness. Yes, there are mistakes made, misunderstandings, but what relationship doesn't have those??
And the way KA Tucker writes, I could FEEL every emotion. I swear it was just bleeding off the pages and straight in to my heart.
Although Jonah and Calla are the focus of the story, we get to meet some amazing new characters that add so much spice, as well as, revisit with old friends that captured our hearts from The Simple Wild.
Just a brilliantly beautiful love story that will span the ages of time!!

A true MUST READ!!

Excerpt:

“I don’t think this is wise,” Tink said for what had to be the hundredth time since he realized I was getting ready for a night out. “Like I think this is very poorly thought-out, if you ask me, Lite Bright.”
“I didn’t ask you, Tink.”
My uninvited roommate of sorts hovered outside my bathroom. Tink wasn’t human, but right now, he looked like any normal twenty-something guy. Well, if normal, twenty-something guys had natural, shockingly white hair and were beautiful in a way that almost seemed fragile.
This was his full-grown Tink size, something I was still—even after all this time—getting used to. I was more accustomed to pint-sized Tink with the translucent wings. After all, he was a brownie.
After the attack that had taken my mother’s life and should’ve ended mine, he’d basically moved in with me. He’d been here for the last two years, something Ivy’s husband pretended to be grateful for, but in reality, I knew he secretly missed the dude.
“You should ask me,” he replied. When I glanced over at him, I got a little distracted by the dazzle…emanating from the sequin tank top he wore. It was so shimmery that I wondered if he was using some of his magic.
Tink may be a goofball, but he was also one of the most powerful creatures in our realm.
Thank God there was only one of him.
“I am a wealth of amazing advice,” he continued. Dixon, the cat he’d named after a Walking Dead character that Tink called “the hottest redneck eva” slinked around Tink’s ankles. The cat was all gray except for his tail, which looked like it had been dipped in white paint.
I snorted. “When have you ever given me good advice?”
“When I told you two weeks ago not to eat the whole carton of beignets because you’d get sick and you did,” he shot back.
I winced, picking up my mascara. I had gotten sick, but I deserved that carton of sugary, fried goodness. That day…
I didn’t want to think about that day.
“And what about when you ordered that supreme pizza and ate almost all of it?” he said. “I told you that it would probably make you feel bad later.”
Nose wrinkling, I tried to remember what night he was talking about. There were a lot of Friday nights—pizza night in my household—that I ate an entire pie and felt terrible afterward.
“Or how about that time I told you that the seared ahi tuna looked a little gray for my liking? But, oh no, Brighton knows better.” He reached down, scratching Dixon between the ears. “You ate it all, and then I spent the night cleaning up your puke.”
Ew.

BOOK TRAILER

Armentrout’s intoxicating new fantasy is her best yet!” New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter on Storm and Fury “Dark, mysterious, and yet often hilarious, this riveting page-turner sparkles with innuendo and delivers a breathtaking romance; a stunning conclusion to the trilogy. “ Library Journal on Moonlight Scandals
“With this first title in her new Dark Elements series, powerhouse author Armentrout delivers another action-packed, believably narrated ride through a paranormal world as seen by a teen.”Booklist on White Hot Kiss

Jennifer Armentrout always impresses me with her talent for bringing such enticing and creative stories to life.  I always find myself so immersed and always feel like I never want the story to end.
The Wicked Series is one of my faves from her and getting to be back in that world is always a bliss.
I have loved getting to know Brighton and Caden and know their story is going to be huge.  The fae world that JLA has created in this series has been a dark one yet JLA has such a unique way to bring in humor and tie in that romance that it all just feels natural.
The King brings us one more step in to the lives of Brighton and Caden and I am on the edge of my seat with where JLA is going to take us...
Love this series and can't wait for more!!
