#CoverReveal “Cuffed” by K. Bromberg

WE ARE EXCITED TO BRING YOU THE COVER FOR CUFFED BY NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR K.BROMBERG RELEASING ON OCTOBER 23!

Design: Helen Williams

Photographer: Wander Aguiar


Synopsis:

From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them.

“I hate you. I never want to see you again.”

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again.

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past.

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.
What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?
***

I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves.

That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up.

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story.

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

Synopsis:

Who knew sleeping with the enemy could be this fun?

Was the one night stand a good idea?

Well, no. Probably not in retrospect.

In my defense I had just moved back into my grandparent’s house, I’d lost my dream job, and a guy on Tinder had stood me up. It was like life had suddenly stamped ‘LOSER’ on my forehead.

So when the guy behind the bar started giving me THE look…you know, the one that promised I’d be screaming his name into the wee hours of the morning? When that guy also has the perfect amount of scruff on his chiseled chin, biceps bulging out of his t-shirt, and a cocky grin you knew he’d earned in the sack…when he gives you that look, you don’t bother to figure out what your six degrees of separation are. You jump on that horse and ride it!

Pun fully and completely intended. And accurate by the way.

I fully admit to feeling sorry for myself and acting impulsively, but by the time I’d figured out WHO the bartender was, I was already falling for him.

#Excerpt “Twisted Twosome” by Meghan Quinn

TWISTED TWOSOME

by Meghan Quinn

NA Romantic Comedy


Synopsis:

From the first day I met Racer McKay, I knew our interaction was going to be incredibly brief. First impressions really do matter and unfortunately, I didn’t make a very good one.

At the time, I didn’t think much of it. I was never going to see this man again, right?

Wrong! When I’m met with the opportunity of a lifetime, there is only one man in the state of New York who can assist me. And can you guess who it is?

But what I don’t realize is he needs me just as much as I need him. I have money he’s desperate for, and he holds the key to making my dreams come true.

So, we reluctantly join forces.

Our pranks turn from sarcastic banter, to sexual tension and lust-filled glances. Bickering matches quickly morph into slow burn moments. We’re hot, we’re cold. We push and pull. I need him, I don’t want him. We’re on the verge of combusting with an agreement dangling dangerously between us. Neither one of us can afford to lose one another and yet, we’re finding it quite hard to decipher the line that rests between love and hate.

#BlogTour “Royally Endowed” by Emma Chase

ROYALLY ENDOWED

The Royally Series Book 3

By Emma Chase

Release Day: August 14th 2017


My musings…

5 Lemon Sucking CROWNS

Emma Chase has always been a favorite of mine, but she has truly created something fantastic with this series of standalones.  Each story and each character has hit the bulls-eye every single time, and Royally Endowed completes the hat trick.

Ellie Hammond stole the show for me in this one.  Her whole aura and attitude for life drew me to her character, making it clear to see why Logan would have been enamored with this spitfire. The way in which Emma Chase writes her character makes Ellie vibrate with life, like readers can feel the essence of her character through the pages. Ellie makes readers want to live life freely and taking every single moment it has to offer.  It is intoxicating and lovely, and readers, as well as Logan, have no choice but to succumb to the charms of this woman.

Logan is the perfect bodyguard. He is honorable and brave with just the right amount of aloofness to give off the impression that he doesn’t care, but readers get to see glimpses of his heart and his depth of emotion for Ellie. With each moment with her, readers fall more and more in love with Logan and his heroic persona, and when he finally opens his heart to Ellie, the passion he emotes and shows her will leave readers in a puddle on the floor.

This is another slow-burn, but readers will love the way Emma Chase has chosen to tell their story.  She opens the story by dropping readers into the middle of the story leaving them on the edge of their seats, knowing that they will be coming back to this scene. The pacing and passage of time. thought, allows readers to get glimpses of these two through the years.  They get to see Ellie and Logan evolve in a natural way, allowing their feelings to grow and develop authentically. The author shows readers their struggles with admitting how they feel and how they flirt with the line of truth.  With all the build up, it is explosive when these two finally come together and admit how they feel.  The conflict of the story is relatively clear from the beginning, but the way Emma Chase details each moment of their issues will make readers feel every break of their hearts, only to have their hearts racing as a result of climax and falling action of the story. As with all royal fairytales, Emma Chase delivers the conclusions that is Disney-worthy, showing readers a happily-ever-after that will have them cheesy grinning without a care in the world.

I have absolutely loved this series of standalones.  Everything from the world she created to the stories she told enraptured me.  It will be one of my very favorite romantic series because not only does it give readers epic stories of love but it also shows readers that love is for everyone.

#NewRelease & #MBreview “Illegal Contact” by Santino Hassell

Illegal Contact (Barons Novel, Book 1)

by Santino Hassell

AVAILABLE NOW!


 My musings…

5 #DatBrawleySmile CROWNS

I found Santino Hassell as a writer through the Cyberlove series he co-writes with Megan Erickson, and while I have gone on to buy the Five Boroughs books, I’ve yet to dive into a book written solely by this author. Like I expected, though, he didn’t disappoint. Santino Hassell brings an authentic and realistic voice to the MM romance world, and I devoured Noah and Gavin’s story, not just because of the romance but also because of the personal journey of these characters.

These two together are great. The bantering, the sexual tension, and the aggression between them sets up an epic build to an eventual emotional and sexual release. This rising action has more purpose then to build of the physical aspect of their relationship; it is also serves to expose what motivates and drives these characters. Readers get to see what is behind Gavin’s surliness, and they get to witness what holds Noah back. Readers also get to see what truly caring for others looks like not only with Gavin and Noah but also their friends. The logic and maturity they show when facing their future is one that is heartbreaking and sad (it will make readers want to scream over how ugly the world is), but once again exemplifies how much these two care for one another. The people these two evolve into as a result of their time together just serves to exemplify how love and companionship makes a person better, more complete and more fulfilled in his/ her life.

One of the reasons I am an avid Santino Hassell fan is the voice her delivers with each story. The dialect he uses for the characters rings with realism, the integration of current trends and allusions to current events connects readers to the characters and worlds he creates, and his books bring to light real issues that plague the LGQBT community. He doesn’t shy away from the ugly or the hurtful, but his books also show incredibly strong characters with the fortitude to face the ugly for the person he/she loves. There is no truer example of this than Illegal Contact. The added celebrity of Gavin only serves to magnify the issue since the public feels the need to weigh in on his life and choices. Even with the realistic aspect of his stories, I have always found that his endings not only give the characters an HEA they deserve, but it leaves readers with a hope for the future, for a better day where we can all be supportive and accepting of each other and focus on the aspects of a person that actually matter.

I’m in love with this new series from Santino Hassell. The entire cast of characters are fantastic, and Gavin and Noah (especially Gavin) stole my heart! I cannot wait to come back to this new world he has created.

#ReleaseBlitz & #MBreview “The Perfect Bastard” by L.K. Collins

The Perfect Bastard by L.K. Collins

Cover Design: Prezidential Visions

AVAILABLE NOW!!


 My musings…

I can always count on L.K. Collins to deliver a fast and uber-sexy romance, and The Perfect Bastard is all that I was anticipating.

Roan Reddick will earn his war into readers’ hearts because he is that perfect blend of bad boy and good guy.  He has a temper and is often quick to act out, but he is also a really great dad.  The dichotomy of his character is further exemplified with his physical look, wearing a suit with tattoos peaking out. He gives reader that good guy with a dash of danger readers seem to love.

Mia is a the best friend’s little sister, the forbidden fruit.  She is nice and sweet, but she also has a seductive side.  Once she decides who she wants, she goes for it, laying it all on the line, and readers can respect a woman with enough guts to speak her mind and desires.

This is a really fast paced book. The relationship moves quickly, and the conflict is one that readers can anticipate.  The chemistry between Roan and Mia as well as the angst that develops from the conflict is great and will leave the reader entertained from the beginning to the end.

L.K. Collins is one of my go-to writers when I need a quick and dirty read, and they never let me down in this area. Their stories always have some suspense and angst, very steamy scenes with great chemistry between the main characters, and great heroes and heroines. So if you are looking for something quick and hot, then The Perfect Bastard is what you need.  Continue Reading

#ExcerptReveal “Drunk Dial” by Penelope Ward

DRUNK DIAL by Penelope Ward

Release date: 8/21/2017

A Contemporary Romance Novel


Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

#Excerpt “Mr. Big” by Delancey Stewart

Are you ready to meet MR. BIG? We’re just under two weeks away from the release of MR. BIG by Delancey Stewart – check out the excerpt below and preorder your copy so you can get your hands on Oliver on August 29th!


cover-mrbig

About MR. BIG:

Once upon a time, I had everything: money, power, a multimillion-dollar company, a loving family. Well, at least I thought I had everything. Then my parents died, and I found out my whole life was based on a lie. That’s pretty much the moment when I went numb. Told the world to f*** off and went on a bender of epic proportion, just to see how far I could fall before I hit rock-bottom.

Now I’m back and all I want in this world is my morning—okay, afternoon—coffee. Then one of my employees has the nerve to call me out for cutting the line at the coffeehouse at the company I own. Sure, I’m a little scruffier than usual, but come on, bitching out the CEO? Not a smart career move. Just who does this smart-mouthed ball-buster think she is? And more important, what do I have to do to get her number?

Holland O’Dell may be uptight, but I wouldn’t mind taking her back to my place and ripping off that business-casual blouse/skirt combo and burying myself in her curves. She pushes my buttons, but at least I’m feeling something. And whatever it is, I won’t stop until I get more.

Advance praise for Mr. Big

Mr. Big is the kind of smart, sexy delight that every woman deserves to read! [Delancey] Stewart will make you believe in true love in this steamy, heart-wrenching tale.”USA Today bestselling author Sierra Simone

Add to Goodreads


 My musings…

4 Crowns

Of all the Boys of Summers series, Grand Slam by Heidi McLaughlin is by far my favorite. The drama and angst combined with the likable characters made this one a delightful read.

Travis Kidd, the starting left fielder for the Renegades, has always desired Saylor, but she has kept him at a distance.  Always the jokester and woman-loving player, he wasn’t someone she could risk her future on, but throughout the story, readers get to see the softer more lovable man who really only wants a family and people to love. Saylor is a single mom with a lot on her plate. Readers are going to absolutely respect her desire to provide for her child and sacrifice for her happiness.  Whenever these two are together, they cannot resist their attraction for each other, and readers won’t want them to resist it either.

There is so much going on in this plot. There is the obvious forbidden nature of their relationship with her being a manager and him being a baseball player.  On top of that, they both have legal issues that are plaguing them, setting up yet another obstacle to prevent these two from being together.  Even with the many obstacles between them, these two fight to overcome them.  With the amount of pressure they are under, the conflict explodes in an expected manner, and readers will love Travis’s solution to the issues.

If you are looking for an angsty, drama filled romance, than Grand Slam is what you are looking for.  The plot and characters will keep you hooked through the whole book! Continue Reading

#ReleaseBlitz “Wish You Were Here” by Renee Carlino

WISH YOU WERE HERE

By Renee Carlino

Release Day August 15, 2017


Synopsis:

You know when you’re looking at someone and you can’t help but smile at how oblivious they are to their own charm? That’s what was happening to me, and it was making me feel…happy. Euphoric. Something indescribable. It was like we already knew each other, like we had met in a previous life. Memories that didn’t exist began exploding in my mind like fireworks.

Charlotte has spent her twenties adrift, searching for a spark to jump-start her life and give her a sense of purpose. She’s had as many jobs as she’s had bad relationships, and now she’s feeling especially lost in her less-than-glamorous gig at a pie-and-fry joint in Los Angeles, where the uniforms are bad and the tips are even worse.

Then she collides—literally—with Adam, an intriguing, handsome, and mysterious painter. Their serendipitous meeting on the street turns into a whirlwind one-night stand that has Charlotte feeling enchanted by Adam’s spontaneity and joy for life. There’s promise in both his words and actions, but in the harsh light of morning, Adam’s tune changes, leaving Charlotte to wonder if her notorious bad luck with men is really just her own bad judgment.

Months later, a new relationship with Seth, a charming baseball player, is turning into something more meaningful, but Charlotte’s still having trouble moving past her one enthralling night with Adam. Why? When she searches for answers, she finds the situation with Adam is far more complicated than she ever imagined. Faced with the decision to write a new story with Seth or finish the one started with Adam, Charlotte embarks on a life-altering journey, one that takes her across the world and back again, bringing a lifetime’s worth of pain, joy, and wisdom.

#ReleaseBlitz & #MBReview “The Soul Mate” by Kendall Ryan

THE SOUL MATE

By Kendall Ryan

Release Day – August 14, 2017


My musings…

4 Soulmate CROWNS

Just like the other standalones in the romantic comedy Roommates series, Kendall Ryan has delivered a fun, light, and sexy read. Filled with a fast paced plot and enjoyable characters, it is the perfect way to end your summer.

This novel follows Mason and Bren who share a passion for their work and yet couldn’t be more opposite when it comes to relationships and love. Both of their pasts have formed who they are as adults, as well as their fears and desires about their future. Kendall Ryan does a great job explaining their choices and what motivates them, making these two incredibly likable. The chemistry between them is good, but there is a wall that goes up between them anytime real intimacy comes into play, which hinders the full blossom of the relationship.

The story moves quickly into insta-love. Now the premise of the novel, explains the sudden rush of emotions from the characters. I did like the avenue the author took to slow down the fast-paced plot, showing the maturity and level-headedness of the characters. There are not real plot twists or OMG moments in this book, but readers will still enjoy the journey the author takes them on.

The Soul Mate is a great conclusion to this series. It had me laughing and swooning and enjoying all the antics of this characters and their journey.

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.

Toying with Her by Prescott Lane
Release Date: August 17th
Genre: Contemporary Romance


toyingwithher

Synopsis:

No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s best selling vibrator, it’s near impossible. Yep, that’s right. That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child. It’s aptly named Woman on Top. And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top.

So I’m headed home to my Southern roots. It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more. But Rorke Weston has other plans for me. Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him.

It’s been said you never forget your first. For me, that’s definitely true. No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke.

He’s turned into quite a man. Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long. And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue.

Rorke wants his chance. The one we never had. But that was a long time ago. When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever Afters. Even ten years later, I feel a pull. And it’s not simply Rorke yanking down my panties.

Do second chances really happen? Or is my heart simply toying with me?

#BlogTour “Wicked Wish” by Sawyer Bennett

WICKED WISH

The Wicked Horse Vegas – Book 2

By Sawyer Bennett

Release Day  August 11


 My musings…

4.5 Erotic CROWNS

I have said it before and will say it a million more times. I love Sawyer Bennett, and I love her stories.  Her worlds vary, the characters are different and three-dimensional, and the steam varies to meet the tone of the story and the type of characters of each novel.  What made me fall in love with this author a little bit more, though, is the opening commentary by the author, voicing her stance on writing and reading erotica. I love it and her, and it makes me incredibly proud to be a lover of this erotica series.

As with every Wicked Horse book, the instant chemistry and fulfillment of desires happens pretty quickly (you shouldn’t be surprised as it is a series revolving around a sex club), and Wicked Wish starts off in a similar fashion. The fun begins when Jorie and Walsh realize who is behind the masks, beginning the forbidden best friend’s little sister trope.

While the basic plot line of this novel does follow the expected trope, there are several aspects of the story that make it different. First, Jorie and Walsh have an established connection based on shared past experiences.  She wasn’t and isn’t just the little annoying sister.  There is more there before they accidentally and then on purpose come together. Second, Jorie is different then the standard heroine in these tropes. She is searching to find herself again, to gain back her self-esteem on her own terms, and to own her desires for sexual exploration without shame. Finally, once the inevitable and expected conflict occurs, readers find a stronger heroine who comes to the resolution of the story on her own terms.

One of the reasons I love this series so much is the theme of embracing your own sexual desires, whatever they may be.  There is no judgment at the Wicked Horse.  There is no judgment among the characters.  Each couple and story contains its own kink and its own for of debauchery, and, yet, Sawyer Bennett writes about these scenes and the reactions in a completely normal way because it is. This is a place for safe exploration of desires and that alone is enticing and seductive.

If you haven’t entered the erotic world of the Wicked Horse, you must. All standalones, readers can start wherever they would like, but know you won’t ever want to leave because Sawyer Bennett delivers not only erotic scenes in and outside of the walls of the Wicked Horse but she also gives real romance and storylines to go with it, meeting the needs of all romance lovers.
