{Blog Tour} MY TODAY by HJ Bellus -- with reviews and giveaway!

My Today
My Way Series, Book Two
By: HJ Bellus


Lacey’s Story…

Covering up pain is easy. It’s keeping
it tucked away that’s hard. I’ve always needed the cover of tattoos to hide the nasty past that leached its way into me, tainting me beneath my skin. Not the shiny, trendy tats, but the ugly broken kind, meant to keep the world at bay. If they weren’t enough, then my piercings, foul mouth and crazy hair usually did the trick. Life had taught me to never follow the rules, because when you do, you get burned.

That philosophy served its purpose, until I met someone who turned my life upside down. Milly, the little hoochie, stormed into my life and changed everything with her undying faith in me, her
love and her shitty coffee concoctions. I found a family in Milly, and her sexy farm boy, Cree. She accepted me without hesitation, and never ran from the dark and dangerous secrets that I harbored. My new family loved me unconditionally, with their showers of sprinkles and impromptu dance parties.

My life was perfectly imperfect until Tripp and his crazy-ass ideas of princesses. Our relationship is what most would describe as fuel meeting fire. We were both hell bent on burning each other to the ground. Tripp, fresh out of rehab, moved in with Milly and Cree to try and make a new life for himself. Tripp, the sexy as hell, charismatic beast, soon became one of my best friends. We shared our love of ice cream and tattoos as we blazed our own path that could only lead to a beautiful train wreck. The only question left is, will we set the countryside ablaze with our hot tempers and foul mouths, or will we paint our own happy ending filled with all the gushy shit normal people crave?

Add on Goodreads:



I read these out of order and started with Lacey & Tripp's story first, which is totally fine. I like the spunkiness of Lacey and how Tripp just falls for her. Hearing their story as it happens from both points of view seems to make it more poignant. 

Lacey is foul-mouthed, vivacious, pretty, and tells it like it is. Tripp is fresh out of rehab and coming to live with his cousin, Cree, to get some peace and quiet. Both have pasts that could threaten their future happiness as they deal with their emotional problems. Both fall hard for one another. It was a sweet romance to watch unfold as Lacey's creative cursing kept me smiling



“How weird of a couple we are. I’m short and plump, you are a tall, sexy Beast. We are both way beyond repair.”

“I think it’s pretty damn sexy, if you ask me.”

“Really? Of course you would…you are a typical horn dog.”

“Lacey, I really like you. There is something about you that makes me want to have you all to myself.”

“You better only see me or I’d have to cut a bitch.”

My Now & Forever
My Way Series, Book One


Whose parents abandon them in a trashy trailer when they are five years old? Oh Yeah! Mine do!

Hey Hoochies! I'm Milly, and I am tired of taking kicks to the gut. A broken family, an asshole husband and the loss of loved ones have left me crying Uncle, and declaring a serious case of the Fuck-Its!

I had my heart broken, stomped on and shattered before I ever started on my journey to find my little piece of happiness. With a bucket list, a '66 Ford and wild dreams, I set out on an adventure that changed my life forever. Follow me on my journey that resurrected my inner badass.

I found my soul sista from another mista, and opened my dream shop along the way. Just when I gave up on finding true love, a pirate and a princess swept me off my ever lovin' feet and filled my world with sprinkles, mac n’ cheese and the courage to live again. They forced my fragile heart to trust and love without fear.

Truth is, nobody’s past stays hidden forever. It’s an invisible monster waiting to attack and destroy. It has the capability to ruin everything you’ve worked to set right. All it takes is one final blow to the
gut to end everything.

This was a fun, contemporary romance to read. The colloquialisms and mannerisms of Milly and Lacey crack me up. While it isn't at all something I can relate to, it was nevertheless cute and quirky. Cree & Milly steam things up and have the added sweetness of little Annie-bug, Cree's adorable, precocious daughter. 

I found Cree & Milly touching and sweet, both with damaged hearts from the past, but both ready to take on the world and learning to love again.
