Blurb:
We all have one. A price. That magic number that will get us to agree to do anything, be anything. Don’t sit on your gold-plated high horse and say you don’t because you do. Everyone does. Each of us has something we covet enough that we’d sell ourselves to have it. What’s my tipping point, you ask? Apparently a cool quarter mil will do the trick. What does one do for 250 large, you wonder? Anything the infamous, gorgeous playboy of Seattle wants. For the next four months I’ll be Shaw Mercer’s arm candy, his beck and call girl, his faux girlfriend. I’ll be his to command, mold, push and pull in any direction he sees fit. I’ll fight falling into bed with him. I’ll fight falling in love with him even harder. I’ll fail at both. And when my past and present collide in the most unexpected of ways, I’ll learn that while one man’s love for me has never died, the only man’s love I really want will never be mine.

Release Blitz: Fatal Harmony by Anne Malcom




Title: Fatal Harmony
Series: The Vein Chronicles #1
Author: Anne Malcom
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: January 31, 2017



Blurb

I may be the villain of the story, but at least I get a leading role.
Evil is a term thrown around history and literature as if it's something so easily definable. A concept to fight against.
Evil doesn’t exist.
Neither does ‘good.’
Vampires do, though.
I just happen to be one.
I’ve cruised through the centuries managing to avoid all the wars, supernatural and human, but still going to all the best parties.
I would say I avoided bloodshed, but it’s kind of part of the whole ‘vampire’ thing.
I’ve lived on the fringes of a society that considered cruelty and sadism favorable character traits for almost five hundred years. Now I'm in the middle of a war that might just put my nonbeating heart in a lot of danger.
Battles, I can handle.
The impossible attraction between me and the vampire slayer, not to mention the penetrating gaze of the king of our race, on the other hand?
I might not get out undead.




Release: Out of the Storm by J. B. McGee

Title: Out of the Storm
Author: J.B. McGee
Genre: Romantic Suspense

THEO

There's an eerie calm before the storm,
And my best friend is in the direct path of the hit.
I have to protect him, no matter the cost.
He's like a brother to me.
I'll do whatever it takes to make sure he's safe.
Even if that means being pulled into the vortex that is Jules Hemingway,
A sexy, fiery tempest that has the potential to destroy everything in her wake. 
All I want is to dive in, take my chances. 
But first, I must complete the mission—save my friend.
Though it may mean losing what really matters,
The only woman worth drowning for.
JULES
Something's amiss—strange and ominous, 
And I can't quite put my finger on it. 
When Theo Katawhateverhisnameis comes thundering in,
It's like lightning to my heart, my body, my soul.
It's a shock—a jolt, as I realize my life is a scam,
A scheme with no winners.
I'm in over my head, treading in a sea of lies, 
Leery of whom to trust,
Only looking to protect myself, my heart.
Together, we're wreckage, debris, 
but are we collateral damage in this perfect storm?

"Passionate. Angsty. Mind-blowing. A masterful tale of intrigue, lust, and jaw-dropping sex...Yep. It's one of my hottest reads this year." -Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal Best-Selling Author


Book Review: Good Boy by Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen


Blurb

Hosting her brother’s wedding for an MVP guest list is the challenge of Jess Canning’s life. Already the family screw-up, she can’t afford to fail. And nobody (nobody!) can learn of the colossal mistake she made with the best man during a weak moment last spring. It was wrong, and there will not be a repeat. Absolutely not. Even if he is the sexiest thing on two legs.

Blake Riley sees the wedding as fate’s gift to him. Jess is the maid of honor and he’s the best man? Let the games begin. So what if he’s facing a little (fine, a lot) of resistance? He just needs to convince the stubborn blonde that he’s really a good boy with a bad rap. Luckily, every professional hockey player knows that you’ve got to make an effort if you want to score.

But Jess has more pressing issues to deal with than sexy-times with a giant man-child. Such as: Will the ceremony start on time, even though someone got grandma drunk? Does glitter ever belong at a wedding? And is it wrong to murder the best man?

Caution: May cause accidental aspiration of tea or coffee. Do not read in a public place where loud laughter is inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppy cuddling and a snarky pair of underwear.

You know what I love more than a hot hockey player? A FUNNY hot hockey player. Blake will have you swooning one minute, then trying your best not to laugh out loud at his crazy antics at the next. Mix in a feisty heroine who their banter is one argument away from foreplay, and you’ve got yourself an entertaining read. 

For those of you who read “Him, & Us”, then you’re familiar with Wes and Jamie’s relationship and know they’re getting married. Having not read those, I was introduced this magnetic couple who was preparing to spend the rest of their lives together. Being the older sister of one of grooms, Jess is about to make her brother’s dream come true by giving him an unforgettable wedding. 

Making sure everything goes according to plan, Jess is determined to make her family proud of her for pulling off something they didn’t think she could’ve done. But when Blake Riley shows up, her thoughts on remaining calm goes through the window because her former one night stand, it’s hell bent on having a repeat. And Jess doesn’t do repeats. Or so she thinks.

Blake Riley is something else. There’s no other way to describe that man. Sure he’s hot, rich, and God’s gift to women in the sheets but his personality is one of a kind. Bordering on whether he needs permanent medicine and loving his humor, Blake is one of those guys that no matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to forget. Whether it’s his sassy humor, his fierce loyalty, or knowing that at the end of a really hard day, you can just sit back and talk to him about anything, Blake is the guy you want. And you know what Blake wants? Another shot at being with Jess again. And ladies let me tell you, that man doesn’t give up. 

“I’m glad we’re dating now. Cue her arguments in 3….2….1.

“We’re not dating”.

I grin at the ceiling. “Sure we are. We did it on my bed.”I shrug. “That means we’re dating”.

“That’s not how it works!”.
 

One thing I love in my heroines is knowing that they have a back bone and Jess certainly had one in this story. I will admit that I wasn’t so sure about her character in the beginning but as the story flowed, we saw her true colors and what she wanted out of her life. She stood up for herself and when something wasn’t working for her, she made the decision on her own to do something about it. 

I loved the back and forth banter between these two. It was hilarious, sexy, with very little drama and it was just the type of read I was looking for. If you love a hot funny hockey player, then this one is for you.


Teaser Tuesday: A Thousand Letters by Staci Hart

A Thousand Letters by Staci Hart
Publishing Date: February 9th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

A Thousand Letters, an all-new emotional standalone by Staci Hart is coming soon!  

Sometimes your life is split by a single decision.

I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them.

But now he’s back.

I barely recognize the man he’s become, but I can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid.

Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances, he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if I’d said yes all those years ago, he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different, we would have had a chance.

One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey bought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.

*A contemporary romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion*

Teaser Tuesday: Pucked Off by Helena Hunting

PUCKED-OFF BY HELENA HUNTING
Publication Date: February 21st, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Synopsis:
***A Standalone novel in The Pucked Series***

I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance."

I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.

Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.

I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.

At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.

I shouldn’t want her.

But I do. 

I should leave her alone.

But I won’t.

Did they or didn’t they? Was the constant question looping around in my mind and I enjoyed every single word of this story. So if you’re brave enough to go into this one, make sure you have your wine ready and the AC up on high cuz it’s about to get hot up in here! You can also read my review HERE.

Title: If I Dream
Series: Corrupted Love #1
Author: K.M. Scott
Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 24, 2017



Blurb

If I dream, will you dare?

All I wanted was my freedom. It's all I'd dreamed of from the first time I stood in the ring. Until I entered Robert Erickson's world. Until Serena. Cruelty and ugliness surrounded me, but she was beautiful and good. I wanted to protect her from her father's world, even though I knew being with her could mean the end of me.

I wanted for nothing as the daughter of one of the richest men in the world. But all my father's money couldn't buy what I truly craved. Until Ryder. I wanted all he was, all he brought out in me. All he made me desire.

Our love was forbidden by the one person who had the power to harm us. We dreamed of more than living in that world, though. We dreamed of having it all, but did we dare?
