Reveiw of Sugar Daddy by Rie Warren


~ Synopsis ~

Shay Greer is pure GRITS—a Girl Raised In The South–but nowhere near a demure southern belle. She’s looking for a way out of her broken down marriage when she lands an unexpected job offer she really should refuse. Position? Mistress. Fringe Benefits? Of course. Fraternization with sexy CEO Reardon Boone? Required. Lured by the promise of intimacy missing from her failed marriage, Shay signs on. She’s barely survived a hellish year of heartbreak and needs a fresh start, but she gets more than she bargained for with lowcountry-boy-made-good Reardon Boone.

Bankrolling Shay into his bedroom, Reardon sticks by his tried and true rules: no-strings-attached seduction, no messy emotions, absolutely nothing resembling a relationship. This sassy, sultry woman fits the bill precisely…until she arouses more than his erotic appetite.

So desirable he sets hearts on fire in everyone from downtown debutantes to downhome mommas, Reardon is as irresistible as he is unattainable. Shay falls hard despite their unorthodox arrangement. Determined to discover what’s concealed beneath his Forbes 400 facade, she has no idea how close to home the truth will hit.



~ Review ~
4.5 Star Review 


This was a really good book. It took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. I was crying one minute and laughing the next. 

Shay is living a lonely life. Her husband doesn't want her. He won't even touch her, he barely talks to her. She just wants to be loved and feel worthy. She decides she needs to get a job and applies for and PA job. She was shocked when he told her the job was for a mistress. She didn't know what to think. She is married, but he doesn't want her anymore. If this man, Reardon wants her why shouldn't she get her needs met? Will she break Palmer her husband? Or will she stay true to her marriage? 

Palmer is struggling to deal with their issues. He feels like a failure and doesn't want to cause Shay anymore pain. Does he end up pushing her away? Or can he save their marriage?

Reardon is a man that had been deeply hurt. He will only take in Mistresses as lovers. That way he knows they know the rules. No love, no babies and no happily ever after. He just wasn't expecting Shay to make him want a relationship. She has changed him for the better. Can he give her what she needs and wants? Or is her love for Palmer too much?

This is am amazing story of heartache, loss and love. I am still heartbroken over some of the stuff these characters went through. I cannot wait for book two on Randsome and Solange!!!

Cover Reveal and Giveaway: From Yesterday by Miriam Epstein


Title: From Yesterday
Author: Miriam Epstein
Genre: New Adult Romance
Expected Release Date: March 18, 2014
Cover Designer: Cover It! Designs



~ Synopsis ~

Moving to Miami was supposed to be enough distance from her family and her past, but Paige Kerimov can’t seem to get them out of her head. A year of self-induced solitude, nothing but school, Paige reluctantly starts to let people back into her life, including one person in particular; the insistent and attractive Brady Quinlan with whom she is paired for a project that will impact her major. She has no choice but to work with him, no matter how tough that makes it to deny her attraction to him.
As Paige lets her guard down, remnants of a violent past and a tragic history start to resurface and Brady knows she is hiding something. He tries to figure her out, but she can’t let him see when the truth is that she isn’t sure if she’s in danger from anything other than herself.




~ Excerpt ~

A single tear drop defies me and leaks out of my right eye, traveling a jagged path down my cheek. Brady takes his hand off of mine and wipes the tear away with one finger, then cups the side of my face and pulls me a little bit closer to him. “Don’t be sad, Paige. I’ve grieved already. I will always miss her, but I have wonderful memories of my mother to take with me.”
I close my eyes and lean into his hand without thinking. I’m sad for him, yes, but I also want to know why he can speak of his dead mother with such maturity when I can’t stop conjuring the image of my dead sister. And I’m a selfish bitch for being jealous of his acceptance.
When I open my eyes again, he is looking at me with intent. His thumb moves to stroke my bottom lip and a tiny sigh escapes my throat. The table between us is quite narrow and there is so little distance keeping me from kissing him. It scares me. I feel like a bucket of ice water is being poured over my head and I snap back in my seat with such suddenness that I knock my bag over and the contents spill out on the floor under the table. Brady is still poised there with his hand extended, but the look on his face says he is disappointed. He recovers in record time and we both bend down to retrieve my things. I shove my clothing back in the bag and then I sit up too fast and smack the back of my head on the hard surface of the table. It stuns me and makes my vision swim for a minute, but I still see what is laying on the floor. The package I received earlier must not have been sealed properly because the contents have made their way onto the floor. The necklace my sister always wore, a platinum heart pendant with her Garnet birthstone in the center, is sticking out of the envelope. It is dirty; covered in a substance that I believe is dried blood, and a note is attached. The red lipstick from the mirror was used to spell out ‘I will always find you’.

Cover Reveal: Fighting to Forget by JB Salsbury



Release date: April 15, 2014
Presale available: April 1, 2014


~ Synopsis ~

Every fighter is drawn to the violence, the release that a perfect hit can bring.
But very few are drawn to the pain.
Rex Carter lives behind a wall of indifference. The demons from his childhood act as an anesthetic, keeping him distant from emotional connections. Only the ache from a knock to the jaw, sting of a tattoo needle, or heat from a piercing, can jolt him back from the numbness. The fiery pain is all he can feel, and nothing compares to the burn.
Or so he thought. 
Working in a Las Vegas bar isn’t Georgia Maxwell’s dream. But she hopes it’ll be an end to the nightmare.
Over a decade she’s watched him. Followed his career and kept tabs, all in preparation for this moment. To make amends, repair the wrong. But she didn’t count on the feelings that seeing him again would stir up. The vacant look in his stormy-blue eyes, his perfect body now mutilated by ink and metal.
And only she knows why. She’s lived his pain, every single day, since the day he left.
Changed by time, Rex doesn’t remember the girl from his past. If only she could do the same.
Will she get the absolution she’s spent her life seeking?
Or will he continue, Fighting to Forget?


~ Unedited Teaser from Fighting to Forget ~

Mac
            “What do you dream about?” His voice is soft, desperate.
            “Memories from the past. Things I wish I could forget, but can’t.” You. Always you.
            “Forget.” A humorless laugh, dry with sarcasm, tumbles from his lips. “You think your nightmares would end if you couldn’t remember the bad?”
“I don’t know. I hope they would.”
He exhales hard and his shoulders drop. “They don’t.”
            God, what is he saying? He doesn’t remember the bad, but he dreams it? I’m pushing it, I know I am, but he’s opening up and I can’t pass up the opportunity to find out if he’s okay, if he’s really okay. “You dream the bad, but you can’t remember it?”
            “Something like that.”
            That’s not possible. “Then how do you know it’s real?”
            He drops his head into his hands, gripping fistfuls of his hair. “I don’t.”

~ Synopsis ~

Sometimes doing the wrong thing feels so right...
I'm a player. I'm an asshole. I'm someone you should stay away from.
I have demons.I've made mistakes.And the biggest can't be taken back.
I've gone to hell and back in twenty-nine years and I'm only now coming to terms with moving forward, righting my wrongs, and making amends. Except not everyone deserves forgiveness.

When I close my eyes the darkness encroaches and some days it feels like the things that kill me are the things that make me feel alive.








~ Excerpt ~

I hovered over her sweet body, the soft flesh beneath my fingers like fucking silk. Her hands laced in the rungs of the headboard above her head, propping her breasts high and full for me. Her head was thrown back in ecstasy, full lips formed in a a perfect O as moans escaped her throat.
She was fucking stunning. I moved in and out of her, slowing my pace, hitting her as deep as I could, rounding my hips with each slow thrust and drag. She was everything, had been my everything for a few months, the only one that had ever gotten me.
All of me.
The me that no one else had ever seen.
Fuck of it was, she was my brother’s fiancée.
I’d fucking taken her right from under him.
I hadn’t meant to, I don’t think she’d meant to either, it’d just happened one night, and there’d been no going back.
And now here we were, months later, I was still plowing into her—taking her, owning her, making her mine—every fucking night in my bed, hearing her call my name, her eyes hazy with lust and love when I finished.
Except tonight was different.
Tonight was the last time.
Tonight I was ending it.
My heart clutched in my chest as the words floated through my head. My eyes burned with the pain of it.
I didn’t want to let her go, but more than anything, I was sick of running. And seeing my brother again had finally opened my eyes.
This was it.
This was it for us. For me and her. For the girl that had wrapped her fingers around my soul and held it so fucking tightly it was as if my every fucking breath depended on her.

Blog Tour and Giveaway: It's Not Over by A.L. Zaun

~ Synopsis ~

"If I let go, will you catch me?"

He had wanted her to help him win his ex-girlfriend back.  She had wanted to teach him a few lessons on how to treat a woman. Neither one had planned for the unexpected.

I couldn't stand by and watch. It hit too close to home.  I had to run fast and far to get away and forget him.  He weaseled his way into my life, making me question rules I lived by and turned my orderly life upside down.  I'm falling apart and coming undone.  I don't do that.  I'm Madison Stuart.  I live by my rules.  I won't be derailed by a man.  I won't...I can't.

She's gone. I'm desperate and going insane.  I'll do whatever it takes to find her.  I don't know when it happened, but I won't let her go, not like this.  What has she done to me?  I'm Rick Marin for crying out loud.  I don't chase women, but she's not just a woman.  She's Maddy--my Maddy--and I need her.
 Follow Rick and Madison's story, The Do Over's most notorious couple, as they learn It's Not Over.







~ Review ~
4.5 Star Review


I have been looking forward to this book since I read The Do Over!  You should read The Do over before this book because you learn how Rick and Madison's relationship starts.

Madison is a strong, independent woman.  She is not one of these females who is whiny and relies on the man for everything.  She is almost too stubborn.  She doesn't know how to let people help her. She thinks they all will want something in return or think she is weak if she has help.  So when Rick comes around doing nice things Maddie doesn't know how to take it.  Will she let Rick in? Or will she ruin it and run him off?

Rick is a cocky asshole.  He has always got what he wanted and never heard No.  He was a lying, cheating, munipulitve jerk until Maddie started training him.  He didn't realize how much he relied on Maddie until she up and left without a word.  Will he prove to her that she is what he wants?  That he knows that Dani isn't right for him?

This is an amazing book.  This will be a two part book.  Both these characters have some pretty messed up pasts.  Will Rick and Maddie become free of everything that is holding them back?




~ Character Interview ~ 

We stood outside of the quaint door and I ran my hands down Rick’s shirt.
“So, how do I look, babe?” he asked as if I was about to tell him something he didn’t already know.

“You clean up good, Marin.” I straightened my own skirt and then quickly tucked a loose tendril behind my ear.  “We’re going to rock this interview.”

“No shit.” He winked and knocked.

Hello Rick and Madison! Thank you for taking time out of your day to sit down with me and answer some questions!!

Rick held the door open for me.  I shot him a quick smile to give him that little positive feedback. Manners, after all, go a very long way.  

“Hello, Heather, thank you so much for having us,” I said politely, taking a seat on the sofa. I looked up and spotted Rick unbuttoning the cuffs on his sleeves and rolling them up as he walked toward me.

“Heather, you look absolutely beautiful today.” His eyes scanned the room as he made himself comfortable. “Love the place.” He slipped his arm around my shoulder and leaning over, placed a kiss on my temple.


Madison: What where you really thinking when you saw Rick at the airport?

“My first thoughts?” My eyes glanced up to her and then shifted over to Rick.

“Yeah, babe. I want to hear this.” He sidled up closer to me and drew soft designs with his fingers along my neck.  A soft tingle shot through my body and I quickly pressed my legs together to soothe the subtle ache.

I shrugged my shoulders and cocked my head to the side. “That he was an insufferable asshole that was incapable of letting me have a moment of peace.”

Rick’s fingers wove in my hair and he chuckled. “She’s so full of shit. If you would’ve seen her face, you would’ve known that she wanted to jump me right there.”

I rolled my eyes. “Your ego, Rick is going to be your downfall.” I glanced over at Heather and pursed my lips. “What can I say?  He grew on me. When I saw him there I wanted to be like those ridiculous women that” —my eyes darted to him momentarily— “were like his precious Daniela.”


Rick: When exactly did you realize you had feelings for Maddie? Well that you were "In Love"?

I rocked my head from side to side to ease the tension that was starting to strangle me while I loosened the collar of my shirt. Clearing my throat, I asked, “What was that again?”

Madison shot daggers at me. Fuck, I hate when she gets pissed off at me.

My mouth was parched and my lips dry. I rubbed them together and lick the corner to see if I could stimulate something.  Madison crossed her arms and pulled away from me. Fuck.  

I pulled her against me and looked up at Heather with a flat smile. “Heather, I’m a guy. To explain how my feelings evolved would be to understand how a tsunami forms and then washes across a beach leveling everything in its path.”

Madison’s body went rigid. “What?”  I ask, confused.

“Tsunami’s a destructive force, you idiot.”  She sighed and looked away.

“Tsunami’s” —I turn her face toward me— “are destructive but they’re also powerful. They take hold of you and are a force you have no control over. It’s huge, Maddy.”  I grazed my lips over hers. “It’s huge. I can’t tell you the moment I fell in love with her. I just did.”

“You’re such a sap.” Her mouth hovers over mine.


 Maddie: Why do you constantly call Rick an asshole?

I shifted in my seat and smiled. “Because he is one.”

Rick: where do you want to live and what do you want to do for work for you and Maddie?

It was about time she asked me something easy.

“I want to live in Rick Marin country where I’m the king.”  I shrugged.  

Madison scoffed. “You’re ridiculous.” She addressedHeather. “And you ask me why I call him an asshole? Do you really need an answer to that question? You’re witnessing it first hand.”


Maddie: Do you think that Rick and you will ever get married? Have babies? Rick: do you see marriage and babies in the future?

Rick lowered his hand and brought it over mine. Our fingers laced together. That’s our answer.


Maddie: Why would you keep going back to Alex?

Rick’s body went rigid and his jaw clenched. Did Heather really have to go there?  Why on earth talk about Alex? This was a sore subject. Didn’t she get the list of subjects that were off limits?  

I squeezed Rick’s hand. “That’s in the past.”


Rick: What are your thoughts on Alex and the control he seems to have over Maddie?

“Next question,” I said, raking my teeth over my bottom lip.


Maddie: When are you finally going to put Alex and your brother in their place? Take their man cards like you do to Rick on a daily basis.

I sighed. Heather was like Rick with this relentless line of questioning.  She wanted an answer; I was going to give it to her.

I straighted up in my seat and steadied my stare on her. “Heather, it’s complicated.” I glanced away for a moment, taking a deep breath. “Let’s leave it at that.”  

I raised an eyebrow, making sure she understood.


Rick and Maddie: Where do you each see your lives in 5 years? Together? Alone?

Rick shook his head as he swiveled in his seat. His eyes softened from the fury that were there moments ago. His lips curled.  “I see myself with her. A little bit of heaven, a whole lot of hell, but right where I belong.”

I wanted to believe him and I hoped to God he was right. Today, I saw us together, and that’s all that mattered.

I smiled at him.

I have had so much fun hanging out with you two!! Thanks again for sitting down with me!! I wish you both the best in life.

We both turned toward her. Rick extended his hand, and I followed suit.  “It was a pleasure meeting you, Heather,” I said with a polite smile.


“Thank you so much for having us. Next time you’re in Miami, look us up,” he said, winking.






~ The Do Over ~

~ Synopsis ~

Life doesn't look like it's supposed to for Dani Ruiz, a hopeless romantic.  After a painful and sudden break-up with Rick Marin, Dani hides away from reality, retreating to a world of fiction where she prefers book boyfriends over the hassles of a relationship.


Almost two years later, Dani’s friends are tired of watching her in a holding pattern, so they stage an intervention, forcing her back into the real world of dating.

Unexpectedly, Dani meets Liam Lucas, a down-to-earth firefighter. He might be the person to show her she’s still worth something. Dani’s hesitant to trust her heart with another man, but their instant and electric chemistry is something she can’t deny.

As Dani starts to believe that she’s found her real-life book boyfriend, Rick decides that he’ll go to any lengths to get her back. Seeing Rick as a changed man makes Dani question everything. 

Can Dani trust her patched-up heart with Liam? 
Or has Rick transformed into the man she’s always wanted? 

Written from various points of views, The Do Over is a story of second chances and new beginnings.

Illicit Desire by Kasey Millstead
Cover Design by: Cover It Designs
Expected publication: February 28, 2014



~ SYNOPSIS ~

Beau Diesel…He was my “one”. My one that I would sacrifice everything for. My one that I wanted to be with until I took my final breath. My one that completed me.

I wanted him. I needed him. But he was off limits. I knew this, but the risk of consequences didn’t outweigh the depth of my desire.

So, I fought for our love.

But, I wasn’t Beau’s “one”.

So, he fought against our love.

He fought so hard, eventually I had to give up. I had to admit defeat.

But, that’s the thing about love – when you’re down and out, true love wins. It prevails…and it raises you up.

**This is a stand alone novel, with a happy ever after**
