Dear Jerk Across the Street, sorry for accidentally
walking in on you and catching an eyeful of your—equipment. And hard pass on
the open invitation to join you in the shower “anytime”, A-hole.
 
That’s the note I should’ve written. Instead I sent a
pleasant and apologetic version. 
Had I known Phoenix “Nix” Russo would’ve been the neighbor
from hell, I’d have told him right where he could shove my words. 
Nix is the big man on campus with everyone lined up at his
games to make sure he knows it. Sure, he’s got piercing green eyes, abs that
don’t quit and a smile that could set fire to a set of panties from a hundred
yards away, but he’s also the biggest pain in my ass.
 
Dear Pink-Haired Menace, learn how to take a joke and
stop being such a kill-joy…

Elle Masterson called the cops on one of my parties—again. My sweet talking
usually gets me out of trouble, but this time it got me into a nice pair of silver
handcuffs. Now I’m on a reputation rehab tour with a stop at a spring break
community service project. 

Guess who’s my new boss? 
Now we’re shoulder to shoulder, sweaty, tired and…she’s not
anything like I expected. There might just be a heart under that hardass
exterior. She’s invading my dreams and I can’t shake the feeling she’s the key
to unlocking a piece of me that I’ve hidden away. 
It’s only a matter of time until she finds out why I’m
really here.
Maybe I can break through her walls and into her heart
before that happens…one screw at a time.

Excerpt
“I’ve missed this,” he whispered against my lips. 
“Me too.” 
His fingers tightened around the hair at the base of my neck. Tilting my head to the side, he ran his lips over my skin, sending shivers down my spine. 
One second we were standing in the middle of the pitch-black room and the next the whole world tilted. I landed against Nix’s solid chest.
“Are you okay?” I tried to push myself up.
He tightened his hold around me. “The stress balls, sweatpants, and t-shirts cushioned my fall.”
“Thank you for today.” I peppered his jaw with kisses.
“Thank you for letting me do this for you.” The outline of his erection pressed against the front of my mound. Just one inch higher… 
He wrapped his hands around my waist and lifted me, perfecting the angle.
I shuddered and ground my hips against him. Someone walked by the door, but we didn’t stop—couldn’t stop.
His hands cupped my ass, dragging me harder against him. The texture of his jeans added extra sensation against my clit. I was on fire for him through two layers of clothes. 
My short gasps and his low groans were the only sounds in the room other than the fabric friction. 
“We should get back out there.” I raked my teeth along the side of his neck. 
“You’re probably right.” His hips shot up and I wanted to scream in frustration that he wasn’t inside me, but I didn’t want to break from the thrumming pleasure rushing all over my body. 
“In a second.” 
“In a minute.” His tongue danced with mine in time to the rhythm of our hips. Laughter rang out in the hallway behind the door, but I couldn’t stop. If someone came in, there wasn’t anything that would stop me from dry-humping Nix into next week.

Book Review: White Knight by Meghan March

White Knight (Dirty Mafia Duet, #2)White Knight by Meghan March

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again I was blown away with Meghan March’s brilliant writing! I thought I knew where this book was going to go after finishing Black Sheep, but nope…in true M March fashion, she kept me on my toes and my jaw dropped! I couldn’t stop reading this book once I started…I was addicted, turning the pages faster and faster with each Chapter falling more in love with Cannon & Drew’s story.

The storytelling in this book is plain brilliant…the twists, turns and interwoven side characters all contribute to this 5-star read. I loved Cannon & Drew’s passion and connection in Black Sheep, but that was a warm up compared to White Knight. They continue to prove to one another and their families their love and loyalty to each other, and at the same time are determined to follow and accept the challenges and surprises that life handed them. They both had to dig deep to figure out their true roles and calling, and how they would go forward. But they never gave up on the other – they pushed, they fought, they loved, and they had each other’s backs. I loved every second of them together and couldn’t get enough of them.

I loved all of the secondary character cameos brilliantly divulged in this story, and know whose story is coming next. I can only hope we get more glimpses of Cannon & Drew in future books. Well done once again M March!!! I look forward to reading more about these characters and their world.

Review: Black Sheep by Meghan March

Black Sheep (Dirty Mafia Duet, #1)

Black Sheep by Meghan March

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I know that whenever I pick up a Meghan March book that I am in for an adventurous and sexy ride, and Black Sheep was no different. I absolutely devoured this first book in the Dirty Mafia Duet. It is fast-paced, angsty, suspenseful, and you will fall for both the hero and the heroine.

“Cannon Freeman is a god among men.” I loved this initial reaction from Drew when she first met Cannon face to face. Although she is supposed to be investigating him and his associates, including his father, she is immediately swept off of her feet with one look at him. From their initial meeting, their chemistry was on point – he was witty and sharp, and she was sassy and confident. I absolutely loved these two together!

As their story unravels, you will learn more and more about each of their pasts and how they have come to the point where they are today – both seem to be misled by the other, but their hidden truths do not stop them from surprisingly falling for the other. I loved how naturally their relationship developed – it felt real and authentic, and I swooned so hard over Cannon!!

This book will leave you wanting more of these characters…more of their story and their passion. It does end with a cliffhanger that will have you begging for more! Well done once again M March!

Excerpt:

“We ate at the hotel.” Her lips twisted to the side. “Mind if I stick some stuff in my bag for later?”

A tiny wrinkle formed between Ian’s eyes, just below the long sweep of his black bangs. “There will be lots of food available later too. But…” he shrugged, leaning forward and resting his elbows on his knees “…take whatever you want.”

Jersey glanced over her shoulder at the food and the three other men in the room. She decided to wait a little while before shoving as much as possible into her bag like a free-for-all. “Thanks.” Jersey returned her attention to Ian. “So … you’re a singer. Like … are you a big deal?”

Every word she spoke seemed to feed his level of happiness. “Well …” He rubbed his chin, twisting his lips. “We play music. People like to listen to our music. But no … it’s not a big deal. We’re not saving lives or anything like that.”

She eyed him with suspicion for a few seconds. That smile of his didn’t feel worthy of complete trust. “Um … what exactly do you need me to do? What’s my job? They already took Chris. Will that big, bearded guy come for me too?” Jersey couldn’t remember his name.

“No.” Ian stood, pushing his elbows out from his shoulders, twisting side to side. “Tonight you are just going to watch the concert from backstage. Tomorrow night you’ll sell merchandise.”

“Drugs. You mean drugs, don’t you?”

Ian paused his stretching, letting his arms fall limp to his sides. “Merchandise—T-shirts, posters, keychains, phone cases, hats, guitar pics …”

“To who?”

“Fans.” Ian grinned. “Okay. I might have understated all of this to you … can you name a famous singer? Old or new. Doesn’t matter. Just a famous singer.”

“I had a foster parent who used to listen to Josh Groban.” Jersey gnashed her teeth, still feeling so much anger. Dena wasn’t just a foster parent; she was Jersey’s friend.

“Okay. Well, Josh has sold millions of records, and he’s a huge star in his genre of music. Thousands of people pack venues all over the world to see him sing live in concert. And they sell merchandise of his at those concerts.”

Jersey gazed unblinkingly at Ian as he scratched his jaw.

“Well, I sing a different genre of music, but I, too, travel the world, singing to sold-out concert venues, andI have people who sell my merchandise at these concerts.”

Jersey dropped her bag to her feet and planted her fists on her hips. “Listen, Coop. Stop talking down to me. I’m not an idiot. I know what a concert is. But earlier today you didn’t say what you did or what the job was you were offering. You bought a homeless person a hot dog and offered her a job. Of course, I’m going to think something sketchy might be involved.”

Tipping her chin up, she held her breath to puff out her chest, pretending the recent revelation of Ian Cooper being a famous singer didn’t faze her one bit. Inside, Jersey’s heart hammered into her ribcage, and her mind reeled trying to figure out the day’s events.

“Coop?” His lips twitched into a tiny grin.

“It’s short for Cooper.”

“Clearly.” Ian chuckled. “But my name is Ian. Everyone calls me Ian.”

“I busted the nose and jaw of a kid named Ian. He tried to stick his cock in my ass. I’ll call you Tom, Dick, or Harry, but I’m not calling you Ian because that makes me want to physically harm you.”

Ian’s eyebrows shot up his forehead as his head whipped back a few inches. “Coop it is.”

New Release: Stay by Tia Louise

 

 

 

 

Stephen

Hastings is a control freak.

He’s arrogant. He’s smart as a whip and sexy AF.

He has too much money. He’s bossy, and he’s usually right.

All I saw were his clear blue eyes, tight ass, and ripped torso.

I gladly handed him my V-card that night, ten years ago.

I was so stupid. I swore I’d never be that stupid again…

Emmy

Barton works for a dry cleaner?

Yes, that Emmy Barton—long, blonde hair, bright blue eyes, pretty smile…

Sexy little ass. Smart mouth.

She was the only girl who interested me, but I was leaving to be an officer in

the Navy.

Now

I’m home, running my business. My life is perfectly ordered until I bump into

her, divorced and struggling to make ends meet.

I hate seeing her like this. I hate that she married Burt “The Dick” Dickerson.

What an asshole.

She

says she hates me, but when we fight, it’s all heat and lust.

I won’t leave her this way.

She will let me help her and her son. She will stay…

It’s a thin line between love and hate, and this line is on fire.

(STAY

is a STAND-ALONE enemies-to-lovers, second-chance, marriage of convenience

romance. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

New Release: Malum Part 2 by Amo Jones

 

Malum: Part 2 (The Elite King’s Club book 5), a dark and emotional romance by Amo Jones is NOW LIVE! 

 

Some girls don’t like pretty things.

Some girls like things that are destructive, and toxic. Things that fuel our bodies with adrenaline and bring our demons to their knees.

They say magic isn’t real, but it’s it the closest way to describe love? It doesn’t exist physically. It merely exists around us, within us, possessing our souls and making us do stupid shit. Shit like falling in love with a boy who knows how to rip my world apart and raise hell with a simple flick of his wrist. Their secrets are now mine. I’m not just in the middle of this game, I’m helping orchestrate it. Can the cries of my aching soul be enough to drown out the burning embers of my mistakes?

The mind strengthens the heart, roughing the edges to prepare it for war. This is a war I will not win.
This is a war of fate.

Book Review: Malum Part 2 by Amo Jones

Malum: Part 2 (Elite Kings Club, #5)Malum: Part 2 by Amo Jones

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

***** 5 CROWNED STARS!!! *****

I have said it before, and I’ll say it again….Amo Jones is pure evil genius when it comes to her writing. Everyone says “What the F did I just read?” after her books, and I know what I read…Amo Fucking Jones, that’s what. She’s brilliant and bold and pushes the imagination and reality into an entirely new realm. It’s her own magical and fierce world…not the Kings’ world, and I will gladly step into it EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Very few books and series mesmerize me to the extent to where I’m completely drawn in – and I mean completely. My own personal world stops and this all-consuming book world starts. The Elite King’s world and this series own me – I don’t eat, drink, sleep or even think about what’s going on around me when I read the King’s, and Malum Part 2 was no different.

I fell hard for Nate Riverside Malum what seems like forever go while reading The Silver Swan. He was magnetic with his charming and flirtatious personality, compassion for Madison, care-free attitude and bad boy persona. I LOVED HIM. Since then, my love for him has ebbed and flowed but never faltered. He does in fact have two sides to him – but each side is oh so real and raw; and what I thought broke him in Malum Part 1 only made him stronger and more powerful in this world. His actions ALWAYS have a purpose, and that includes anything and everything to do with Tillie. He can be evil and malicious, and definitely broken at times, but who he was at the core never wavered. His passion for Tillie and loyalty to the Kings and Madison always remained, no matter how he fought it all at times. The way his character developed throughout this book was truly jaw-dropping, and I shed tears when he showed his vulnerabilities, and when he finally allowed his facade to falter and stop running from what was always his fate.

Tillie Stuprum is a force to be reckoned with in this book! She is a QUEEN and I need her as my BFF right the fuck now! I love her apathatic attitude to her status in this world. She doesn’t want it and is not afraid to tell anyone “no” – and I mean anyone. Bad Daddy Hector and bad boy Nate included. At the same time, she will fight for what’s rightly hers and wants vengeance against those who wronged her so badly. She’s not afraid to dance with the devil himself and will walk away from him with hips swinging and a smirk on her face. What I love the most about Tillie in this book is that she wears every emotion on her sleeve from beginning to end. She is not afraid to show her vulnerabilities and broken heart to these Kings, as she knows deep down they have her back, even if she doubted them at times. Her ever-evolving relationship with Brantley was swoon-worthy as it grew from sexual attraction to much deeper as he becomes someone who she consistently relies on and confides in. As she bares her soul to these powerful Kings and their world, she does it with her head held high, confident in every move she makes while refusing to let the darkness consume her.

Nate & Tillie’s story was more than a roller-coaster of emotions…it’s a tsunami, but it is a ride that I could take every day. Each time you think they are “fine” something crashes down around them or a new truth is exposed, and twists and turns are at every corner. They both had to break before they could mend together, and A Jones did a fucking fantastic job of writing this story that is addictive, all-consuming and will pull every emotion out of you! I both cried and cheered for these characters and left my heart on every page, and I’ll do it again and again for them. Can’t wait for the next book in this series. Well done once again A Jones!!!

My first crush. My first heartbreak. My brother’s best friend.

 

The butterflies in my stomach turned into full blown eagles the second our lips touched. A kiss under the stars that changed our relationship forever. 
After a lifetime of wishing, I stared up into Ford’s eyes with his fingers caressing my cheek and my heart racing.
 
The evening ended with my heart bleeding on the ballroom floor. 
 
He destroyed my heart two years ago…but now he wants back in my life. 
 
This time I won’t fall under his spell. I’ll resist his sexy, scruffy beard, and panty-melting smirk. 
 
I thought I was over him. Hell, I fully planned to wave to him through my rearview mirror…but with one text, in the middle of the night, I know I’m in over my head.
 
Ford: I need you.

Blog Tour: The Moth and the Flame by B.B. Reid

blog tour banner-3.jpg

The Moth and the Flame by B.B. Reid

Release Date: May 20, 2019

Blog tour-2.jpg

The Moth and the Flame, the second romantic standalone in the When Rivals Play series by B.B. Reid.

THE FLAME

Here lies Louchana Valentine. She was a homeless, orphaned virgin.

I never cared what my gravestone would say until I landed in deep with a powerful gangster. Lucky for me, my best friend happens to be ruthless too. I should feel guilty that he’s forced to turn on the man who’s been a father to him. Except I’ve always known that Wren’s soul wasn’t as black as he claimed.

He was good.

He was beautiful.

He was mine.

He just didn’t know it yet.

And with Wren keeping me safe, I’ve got time left to rewrite the end of my story. But if he has his way, virgin is already carved in stone.

THE MOTH

I’ve never known anyone as alluring as Lou. Or as frustrating. Since the night she saved my life and stole my wallet for her troubles, I couldn’t stay away.

She became my onus.

My light.

My…anyway.

With nowhere to run, I’m forced to trust someone I never expected. At least with Lou safe in Blackwood Keep—far away from me—I’ll die with my conscience intact. Because she no longer looks at me with friendship in her eyes. Those iridescent blues shine with a different need entirely, and I’ve never been able to deny her.

It is strongly advised that you read The Peer and the Puppet before diving into The Moth and the Flame. Content suitable for ages 18+.

Excerpt:

Lou didn’t awaken when I climbed through her window, weary and angry, late the following night. My prediction had come true. I’d gone back to Blackwood Keep, and against my better judgment, I confronted Danny Boy.

Or rather Ever McNamara.

Heir to a multibillion-dollar hotel empire.

And the only son of Thomas McNamara.

Surprisingly, what bothered me most wasn’t Danny Boy or his double life. Something about his father had seemed familiar to me. As if I’d known him in another lifetime.

I shook my head as I toed off the black and white striped Adidas Lou had picked out, swearing the sneakers almost made me look normal. I snorted, and with a moan, she shifted in her sleep causing the sheet covering her lower half to slip dangerously low. Before I could rethink it, I ran my fingers over the curve of her naked hip now bare to me. Thoughts of Ever McNamara fled to the recesses of my mind as I marveled at the smoothness of her skin.

It was a surprising contrast to her hardened demeanor, but I always knew it was a front. She was a pillar, no doubt standing tall and appearing strong, but one day, her cracked foundation would crumble, and I’d make damn sure I was around to pick up the pieces.

Even if she didn’t want me to be.

There were times when she didn’t appreciate just how seriously I took my role as her best friend. She claimed I acted like her father rather than her friend. If that was what she called making sure no one ever hurt her again, then sure—I’d daddy the fuck out of her.

Another moan slipped from her lips when my fingers reach the edge of her frilly blue panties, but this time, it was the sound of my name on her lips. For a second, I panicked, thinking she’d caught me perving on her, but when her even breaths continued, I realized she was still very much out of it, and a smile slowly formed as my fingers dipped lower.

“What are you dreaming right now, Lou?”

Her breath seemed to catch as I continued to toy with the seam of her panties.

“Are you dreaming of me?”

She sighed in response.

“You are, aren’t you?”

A low whine escaped her.

“I know what you’re after, little Valentine. I’ve known all along.” We both seemed to stop breathing when my fingers dipped beneath her panties and I felt her smooth skin. “How can you be sure you can handle me when I haven’t even kissed you yet?” I swallowed, cursing myself but then decided to allow myself honesty. At least this once.

She was writhing now, attempting to relieve the ache I knew was building, but we both knew it was useless. Nothing short of getting me inside her would ever do.

“You want to come.” It wasn’t a question but a statement of fact. “But you don’t get to come. You’ve been bad, Lou. This is how I’ll punish you.” I freed my fingers from her panties and stepped back. As if I’d snapped my fingers, breaking her from my spell, she jackknifed from the bed, breathing hard and looking around in confusion. When her gaze pierced the dark and found me, I remain perfectly still, my hands already in my pockets, pretending my fingers weren’t burning with the memory of her soft skin.

“Wren?”

My eyebrow rose. “You expecting someone else?”

A Five-Minute Life by Emma Scott

Release Date: May 16th, 2019

FIVE_MINUTE_LIFE

A Five-Minute Life, an all-new standalone new adult romance by International bestselling author Emma Scott.

Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.

A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.

Jim Whelan is on autopilot.

A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.

Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.

When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.

A stand-alone, new adult romance.

Excerpt:

“Marc Antony,” I said and nodded at her drawing. “Part of your Egyptian studies?”

Thea leaned her cheek on her folded hands like she was warming herself before a fire. “Marc Antony is part of the romance. A love story with Cleopatra. He went to war for her. Died for her. When they told her he was dead, she put her hand in a basket with an asp. Can you imagine? Loving someone so much that the thought of life without them is too unbearable?”

“No,” I said. “I can’t.”

Her gaze dropped to my hand on the table and her fingers reached to trace the scars on my knuckles.

These tell a story, don’t they?” She traced one of the fine lines. “You put your hand in with the snakes, too.”

I nodded slowly, savoring the feel of her warm skin on mine. “So the bullies would leave me alone.”

“And did they?”

“Eventually.”

“I’m glad.” She put her hand in mine completely, her fingers wrapping around and holding tight. “I’m being too… something. Personal. Delia would throw a fit, but I feel like…”

“Like what, Thea?”

“Like I have to hold on to this moment, you know? Or you… I don’t even know you and yet I don’t want to stop talking to you.” Her hand squeezed mine. “I don’t care if you have a stutter, but please keep talking to me, Jimmy. Okay?”

My mouth went dry at the nameless desperation in her eyes.

Jesus, does she know she’s trapped? She can’t. Impossible…

“I won’t,” I said. “I’ll talk to you every day. I promise.”

Thea breathed a small sigh of relief and released my hand. “Thank you, Jimmy. That makes me feel better.”

With a final smile—a parting smile, I realized—she took up her pen and then froze.

She’s resetting.

Confusion passed over her features. She looked up at me, flinching a little to see a big man in close proximity. I instantly leaned back to give her space.

“How long has it been?” she asked.

“Two years,” I said, my voice hardly more than a whisper. “But the doctors are working on your case.”

“Yes, they are.” She smiled hesitantly and found my nametag. “I’m Thea Hughes.”

Seven. Seven times now.

“Jim Whelan,” I said.

She offered her hand. Again. I took it robotically, enduring her one-pump shake. Again. Her fingers didn’t linger in mine but released immediately, the way you do with a stranger. Again.

“Nice to meet you, Jim Whelan.”

Fuck. I can’t do this.

I rose to my feet. “I have to get to work.”

Her face fell. “Oh. Bummer. Will I see you again?”

I could promise her I would, but she wouldn’t remember. There was no promise. I could tell her the sky was falling or my name was Abraham Lincoln and she wouldn’t know the damn difference. It’d vanish, like every other word we’d ever spoken to each other. I vanished every time her reset hit and was recreated over again in Thea’s eyes. I could be whatever I wanted; whomever I wanted. And yet she was the one woman I might’ve had a chance to be myself with.

The terrible irony of it was like copper in my mouth.

“Sure, Miss Hughes,” I said. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”
