5 Stars by Guest Reviewer Cybill

This is a wonderful short read! It has love, humor, suspense, and hot sex! What else could you possibly need! LOL!

Spencer Marshall has recently been unlucky in love. Recently ending a two year relationship after catching him boning is secretary, SURPRISE! Thus giving him the nickname "TravAss". Very fitting, in my opinion. She is currently sulking on her couch with mint chocolate chip ice cream and leaving a permanent butt imprint.

Best friend Ryan Kennedy to save the day! Ryan forces her to promise to get off the couch and out of the house or else. Knowing Ryan means business she uses a two week free membership to a new gym, plus she needs to check it out for an article that is being written at her workplace (2 birds, 1 stone). Enter Brandon Montgomery.

6 feet tall, brown hair and a great smile appears on the treadmill next to her. Then it's off to Vegas for a girls weekend. There across a club is that smile again. One very hot dance scene later and we are at a poker game where we finally learn the treadmilling God's name is Brandon.

Things progress really quickly after that. The relationship is going great. But nothing is that easy. Brandon has an ex-girlfriend named Christy. I like to call her Psycho Bitch! She is just a complete nut bag. Bring on the straight jacket. There is also Trevor, not sure what is going on with this yet. It has me intrigued!

I am certainly reading the next one, I have to know what's going to happen. Great job, Kimberly Knight for making something so good in a small package!

5 Stars by Guest Reviewer Cybill

Another great read! So much goes on in these, I am not sure how the author fits everything in such few pages. I never feel like I need more, until the end!

This is the progression of Spencer and Brandon's relationship, and the planning and completion of Ryan's wedding.

Things are going great with Spencer and Brandon. We get to meet Brandon's family and they are great. Spenc and Brandon are looking for the perfect house. Psycho Christy is still in jail but there the still Trevor. He appears in this and we get the story behind his stalking. Spencer is having a serious run of bad luck!

Brandon has got to be one of the perfect BBF's. He buys awesome gifts and is just wonderful. Plus he is an awesome sweet talker!

The person who has intrigued me in this one is, Mrs. Robinson. An older lady that has the hots for Brandon. Hilareous! She is just like the Simon and Garfunkle song! I am wondering what her angle is and how she is going to screw with Spencer.

Great things come in small packages and this is one fine little gem! I am immediately reading the third!

~ Excerpt ~

Brandon drove me down to the police station for the formal interview that afternoon. The investigating officer told me that Christy was still pretty beaten up from the fall and subsequent surgery she had to endure from the stab wound. Apparently, she had punctured her liver and would be in the hospital for at least a few more days –– enough time for the police to get all their ducks in a row. I really didn’t want to rehash the incident, but I knew it had to be done. After an hour and a half of me recounting the events, Brandon and I made our way to Macy’s at Union Square to get my mind off everything.
Macy’s at Union Square covers an entire block.  Although I wanted to go crazy and buy the whole store, I had to remember that for the next few months my tiny closet was going to need to hold both my and Brandon’s clothes.
“Okay, all I really need is another nice dress so I don’t keep wearing the same one over and over again,” I said to Brandon as we rode the escalator up to the Women’s department.
“Whatever you want, Babe.” 
“Are you sure you want to do this? Most guys seem to hate shopping.”
“Oh I do, but I want to be with you, so I don’t mind.”
“Alright, well I don’t want to hear any whining,” I said as I stuck out my tongue at him.
“And what if I do?” Brandon asked, smirking at me.
“Then… then… shit, I don’t know. Don’t give me that look, it drives me crazy and I can’t think straight.”
“Drives you crazy good or drives you crazy bad?”
“Good,” I said as I blushed and tried to swat Brandon’s arm, but he caught my wrist midair and pulled me to him for a quick kiss.
As we browsed around Macy’s, I decided that I should be looking specifically for a dress for my company holiday party, as it was the next big event that I needed to attend. 
I picked out a few dresses and told Brandon that I was going to try them on in the dressing room. The first dress I tried on was a metallic champagne A-line dress. Brandon said he liked it, but I wasn’t feeling it. Next, I tried on a sleeveless dress made with sequined Graphite Grey satin; Brandon liked it as well, but it just wasn’t calling my name.
Finally, I tried on the last dress. It was strapless and made of ivory lace in the pattern of roses with a few ruffles down the front starting at the waist. It was accented with a removable cream-colored belt. I think this is the one. I stepped out to show Brandon. As soon as his face lit up, I knew I had found the one.  
“You like?” I asked as I did a little twirl so he could see the back.
“Yes, I like—a lot!” Brandon stood up and walked over to me. 
“Yeah, I think this is it.”
“I need further convincing.”
He grabbed my hand to lead me back into the dressing room and locked the door behind him.
“What are you doing?” I whispered.
Without answering, he spun me around and pushed me up against the fitting room mirror. My hands slammed into the mirror to brace myself as I felt Brandon’s hard erection against my ass. He moved my hair the side and kissed the side of my neck all the way down to the top of my shoulder, making the little hairs on the back of my neck stand at attention.
“Babe, we’re in a public dressing room,” I panted in a whisper.
“Shh,” he said as he continued to kiss my neck and shoulder. His hand reached around my side as he slowly slid the dress up my thigh inch by inch. 
“Babe…” I said in warning.
His hand glided up my bare thigh and my breath caught when I felt his hand slowly slide into my panties. “Oh God,” I quietly groaned.
Brandon bit lightly on my right earlobe as he started teasing my clit with one of his fingers. I steadied myself with one arm on the mirror, resting my head on his chest as I reached up and grazed my other hand through his soft hair on the back of his neck. His finger slid through my slick wetness before sinking into me as I lifted my leg onto the bench, wanting more. I couldn’t help it ––Brandon brought out the exhibitionist in me. His touch was all I needed to forget everything around me. 
“I can’t keep my hands off of you when you wear a dress,” he whispered in my ear, causing my body to shiver as his breath touched my skin.
“Uh huh,” I mumbled. Not only could I barely talk because of the intense pleasure running through my body, but we were in a public dressing room in the middle of the day. I was both terrified and aroused by the thought that we could be caught at any second.
He continued creating circles around my aching clit with one finger as another of his fingers moved rhythmically inside my pussy over and over.  His hard cock was still pressed into my ass. Lifting my head from his chest and moving forward a step, I slid my hand from the back of his neck. Then I reached down behind me and rubbed his erection through his jeans.
“Don’t start something you can’t finish,” he said, whispering in my ear again.
Ha, talk about calling the kettle black! I continued to stroke him as he brought my body closer to its release. I planned to finish him––I needed to finish him. He reached around and slipped his hand into the top of the dress, his fingers easily sliding beneath the silky material of my bra. He began to caress my right breast and roll the already hardened nipple between his fingers, sending my body into overdrive. I came around his finger, my belly clenching as the climax shot through me.
We stood there like that for a moment while I caught my breath, then Brandon slowly removed his hand from my panties. We heard the door next to us close as someone entered the dressing stall. I couldn’t believe what we had just done together in a public dressing room.  It was exhilarating and slightly dangerous and I felt wonderfully alive, but we weren’t quite done.  I turned around and began to undo his belt.
He caught my hands in his for a moment and raised an eyebrow at me as he nodded his head in the direction of the stall next to us. I grinned wickedly and held a finger to my lips, then made quick work of his belt and unbuttoned his jeans. Sliding the zipper down enough to reach inside, I grabbed his length, causing it to twitch in response. Brandon sat on the bench, his erection growing bigger as I ran my hand up and down around it, milking him.
I saw a drop of his pre-cum glisten, reflecting the fluorescent lights above. I bent down on my knees and lowered my head as I licked the tip, tasting his salty goodness. We heard the lady leave the stall next to us and I almost giggled in relief.  He sucked in a sharp breath when my wet tongue swirled around the head. He grabbed the back of my ponytail and guided my head as I bobbed up and down, sucking him over and over. I took him deeper and deeper into my throat until his body tightened and then convulsed slightly as he spurted hot cum down the back of my throat. He grunted slightly with his teeth gritted as he came, his eyes closed as he fought against groaning in pleasure.
 “Well… guess I’m buying this dress,” I said, laughing as I stood up.

5 Stars by Guest Reviewer Cybill

Great ending to a great series! Perfectly done!

This is the third and final book in the series and it is great! It is will leave you hot and bothered, and possibly sobbing.

We are still following Brandon and Spencer, Ryan and Max but we get to see more of Brandon's brother Blake.

Brandon and Spencer go through the ups and downs of a relationship. The love, laughter, and heartache. They make such a great couple. Spencer truly is the "cheese on his macaroni". His proposal is epic, the wedding is wonderful and the honeymoon is perfect. No man is completely perfect and Brandon has his own flaws that the couple deals with.

Mrs. Robinson is still being a pest but not as much as I thought she would. The three psycho's that have made Spencer's life hell, get there day in court. Spencer can finally be free of fear from them.

There is tragedy that will break your heart with the way the author wrote it. I can't say too much as I do not want to give it away.

Every woman wants her fairytale and Spencer definitely got hers. I have really enjoyed these books and traveling through these lives. They are short but fulfilling, have some seriously hot sex scenes that will leave you melting and make you all warm and gooey on the inside. We learn from Spencer that when life gives you lemons, make lemonade and add some vodka!

~ Excerpt ~

After a few minutes, I realized that I was still alone in the shower. Brandon hadn’t returned from seeing who was at the door and that made me nervous. I quickly rinsed the soap from my body and started to turn off the water when the shower door opened and Brandon slipped in. His hard chiseled body stepped close to me as we both stood under the warm stream of water––something we did almost every night.
“Hey, what took you so long?” I asked, slipping my arms around his neck.
“Blake’s here.”
“Yep.” Brandon’s hands glided down my back to rest on my ass as he gave it a little tug to bring me closer to him.
“Did you know he was coming?”
“Nope, he said he needed to get away and used the plane ticket we gave him for Christmas.”
“Couldn’t he have asked? I mean, this is an important night,” I pouted as Brandon’s cock grew against my belly. I chuckled slightly. Here we were again, talking about his brother at the wrong time.
“Babe, you know how Blake is. He doesn’t always use his head,” he said, tilting his head down to place a soft kiss on my neck.
“I know,” I said, sighing. “Can he maybe get a hotel room for the night?” Of all the nights Blake could have come to visit us, it had to be tonight…the night when I wanted to wear nothing but my new ring and a smile.
“I guess, but we haven’t seen him in, what? Five months?”
“I know––you’re right. I just wanted to walk around naked for the night,” I said, biting my lower lip and giving him my most innocent smile, making his cock twitch in response.
“I’ll make it up to you another night––I promise,” Brandon groaned, bending down again as he pressed his lips to mine.
“But that other night won’t be the night you proposed and I said ‘yes’.”
“I know, Baby…” Brandon looked down at me, searching my eyes as if he was looking for some sort of answer or something. “What if we get a hotel room in the city, you call in sick tomorrow and we order room service, eat breakfast in bed and then spend the rest of the day with Blake? He can take care of Niner tonight. It will give him time to clear his head, too, since that was the reason he jumped on a plane and flew thousands of miles unannounced.”
“Well, he did come all this way. Maybe we should spend time with him?”
“No, he will understand. I’m sure he will be here longer than one night. We will hang out with him tomorrow. Plus I want to see you wearing nothing but your new ring and a smile for the rest of the night,” he said, winking at me, reading my mind.

4 Stars by Heather

This book was hard for me to get into.  I couldn't stand Easton at the beginning.  He is a big manwhore and treats woman like objects.  I don't think he is the greatest dad either.  But after the first few chapters he really starts to grow on you and them you won't want to put the book down.

Brooke has a boyfriend who is worthless.  She is comfortable in her relationship and doesn't know how to break it off.  She is excited about her upcoming cruise with her best friend Nicole.  Going on this cruise opens her eyes to how much she needs to break free from Jared and start thinking about herself.  She also can't get enough of Easton.  They start out as friends and grow to be best friends.  They hide nothing from each other.  So what happens after the cruise?  Will she leave Jared?  Will they find a way to be together?

Easton is a manwhore who doesn't care about woman except to get off. He owns a bar and has his pick of many woman a night.  He doesn't want to settle down and get a mom for his daughter.  The one thing he won't do is parade woman around his daughter.  He agrees to go on this singles cruise with his best drones Avery expecting to get laid every night.  Little did he know one look at Brooke and he would be hook,  line and sinker.   He actually wanted to get to know her and not just bed her.  They build a great friendship and he doesn't want it to end.  Can he convince her he can change?  Or will he go back to his ways when he gets home?

This is an amazing story of love, survival and commitment!!  I cannot wait to read more on Brooke and Easton and wished their second book would come before Melissa and Avery's book.  But I can't wait to read their book either!

~ Excerpt ~

An inexplicable shiver rolls through my shoulders. The low murmur of my friends and the other patrons at Rusty’s falls away. Harris. He’s the only person who elicits this type of bodily response. I remain rigid and unmoving except for my sweaty palms which I place on my thighs. “Luke, my man! How are you?” A strong hand slaps Luke’s shoulder. “Matt, hey.” His worried expression eases into a cheerful one when he shakes hands with a man wearing a large, black boot cast. Next to Matt is the beautiful, caramel-haired woman, Jane, who was with Harris in his convertible. And then it’s him. Harris’ masculine scent surrounds me. He braces his arms on the back of my chair, overwhelming me with his physical presence. I’m swirling in a sea of Harris, unable to resist his pull. He dips closer and then his lips brush oh so gently against my flushed cheek. The intimate contact sends my heart into overdrive. “Hello, Edith,” he murmurs against my skin before pulling away. I nearly swoon against the wood chair. Damn.

Release Day Blitz: The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller by L.B. Simmons


Title: The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller
Author: L.B. Simmons
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2014


~ Synopsis ~


For some, it’s simply one of life’s certainties, nothing more. For others, it’s merely a fleeting thought, one often overshadowed by the reckless delusion that they have been blessed with the gift of immortality. 

For Aubrey Miller, death is the definition of her very existence. Overcome with the guilt resulting from the loss of her beloved family, she alters her appearance from the once beautiful, blonde-haired, blue-eyed little girl to that of one shrouded in complete darkness, enveloping herself in her own unbreakable fortress of solitude as a form of protection for others.

As she enters her first year of college, her goal is simple: Earn a degree with the least amount of social interaction as possible. What she never anticipates is the formation of very unlikely relationships with two people who will change her life in ways she never believed possible: Quinn Matthews, the boisterous former pageant queen, and Kaeleb McMadden, a childhood friend from her past who never really let her go.

Over the years, as their connections intertwine and grow, a seemingly indestructible bond is formed between the three…

But when death painfully reemerges, Aubrey is lost once again, burying herself deeper than ever before inside the familiar fortification of her fears.

Will the refuge of friendship, the solidarity of life-long bonds, and the power of unconditional love be enough to do the impossible?

Will they be enough to finally bring about…

The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller?  

~ Excerpt ~

“Thank you so much, Quinn. This day has been…unbelievable. And I owe it all to you. You have no idea.” My voice trembles a bit with the admission, because she really has no idea what she’s done for me today.  I feel normal.  A normal girl, about to have a normal birthday celebration with her friends, in a normal (albeit spectacular) dress, with normal hair and make-up.  The only thing that’s missing is a pair of normal shoes.  “Shoes! I need shoes!” I exclaim. “No, you don’t.” Quinn giggles and reaches for the knob of my bedroom door. “What? Why wouldn’t I need shoes?”   That makes no sense.  She’s drunker than I thought.  That’s it, I’m officially hiding the champagne.  “You’ll see,” she says just as there’s a knock at the front door.  She winks. “Trust me. Just, stay in here. Don’t come out until someone comes to get you.” After Quinn quietly shuts the door behind her, I remain seated. As the sounds of Kaeleb’s murmur filters into my room, a nervous excitement flitters through my belly and spreads into my chest. My joy takes flight and I breathe in deeply, contentment pumping enthusiastically with each thrumming heartbeat.  Damn, it feels good to be alive.  I don’t have to wait for long. After a very loud squeal from Quinn in the other room, there’s a knock at my door. My pulse kicks up and I rise from the bed, smoothing out my dress. With a glance in the mirror, I pluck a couple of sections of my new hair with my fingers and set them back into place.  “Come in,” I remark, turning in the direction of the door.  The handle turns and as Kaeleb pokes his head around the corner, his eyes find mine. His eyebrows rise as his mouth falls slightly open, and he breaks my gaze as his focus shifts to take in my hair, my exposed neck and the line of my dress. He holds his stare briefly at the crystalline sash lining my waist, and then slowly drifts down to my smoothly-shaven legs and perfectly painted toenails. The left side of his mouth quirks up as he clears his throat, frozen in place. He tears his scrutiny away from my feet to fully step into the room, then turns away from me to shut the door. I take advantage of the 1.5 seconds his back is turned, and survey him from head to toe. His light-blue button-up is folded to his elbows, displaying the prominence of the flexed muscles along his forearms. As he places both palms on the door and leans into them, his shirt rides up enough for me to see the designs on the back pockets of his dark jeans. They hug his ass perfectly, and for the first time in my life, I want to slide my hands right into those pockets just to feel the hardness of his toned body.  My fingers itch with the need to touch him, but I maintain control while Kaeleb braces against the door, inhaling and exhaling deeply. He stays planted there for a few more seconds until I suddenly begin to feel self-conscious. I run my hands over my hair and dress to make sure everything is as it should be.  Just as I start to ask him if he’s all right, he whips around with a full smile on his face. A few long strides later, and he’s standing right in front of me. Raising both hands, he traces the tips of his fingers along the sides of my cheeks, leaving a scorching trail as they run down my neck and thread themselves into the hair at my nape. With his thumbs underneath my chin, he tilts my head back and looks me directly in the eyes.  “You look amazing, Sunshine. Truly breathtaking.” His head dips slightly and he runs his lips tentatively along mine, the movement so sensual I can’t keep my hands off of him any longer. Fisting his shirt in my hands, I pull him into me and press my mouth hard against his, the need to taste him overriding my caution. A whimper rises in my throat and escapes into his mouth as his tongue slides in between my lips, slowly and deliberately, taking his time to stroke and caress mine. His hold tightens as his fingers curl deeper into my hair, the tinge of pain sending shockwaves of pleasure coursing through my body until they land right in between my legs, the throbbing sensation growing with each strike.   After another gentle sweep of his tongue, he lessens the kiss and pulls back slightly.  His lips brush against mine before they slide over to the corner of my mouth, up along my cheek, and then rest them against my ear as he breathes, “Happy birthday. The dress is phenomenal.”

~ Synopsis ~

Easy going soldier Kale Montgomery, a self-proclaimed ladies man, has no plans of settling down, especially not with his best friend- the sexy, sassy schoolteacher Lucy Dawson. Their relationship, though unconventional, is mutually beneficial, and they wouldn't have it any other way. Friends with benefits? Casual lovers? Whatever you want to call it, they’re having fun, in and out of bed, and to them, that’s all that matters. At least that’s what they think, but how long can you spend in someone's bed before you find they're also infiltrating your heart? As their casual fling with no strings attached progresses, it's not long before they realize they're both in way over their heads. One fateful night changes their lives forever in ways they could never have imagined, giving them the push to finally admit that maybe, just maybe they want more than they’ve let on. Their mutual attraction rapidly intensifies as it shifts from burning lust to unrelenting want, need, and possibly even love. Suddenly the idea of settling down doesn't seem so bad. In fact, it sounds pretty damn perfect. Just when things seem to be falling into place, past pain and renewed insecurities rise to the surface and threaten to smother the flames of their passionate relationship, reminding them both why they’ve always kept the idea of love at arm's length. Will Kale and Lucy realize that what they've been waiting for is each other, or will the blazing whirlwind of their feelings burn out too quickly, causing it to all go up in smoke?    

~ Excerpt ~

She looks me over, and I love the fact that she’s checking me out. I don’t know why I’m so drawn to her, but I am, and I want to get to know her better, at least where the bedroom’s concerned. Eventually, she extends her hand, and I give a firm handshake, the kind she wanted when we first met. “Please, Kale, call me Lucy.”       Shaking her hand, I say it out loud. “Lucy. I like it.”       “That’s fortunate since I’m stuck with it. Okay, Montgomery. As much as I love flirting with a hot ass soldier in the parking lot of an elementary school, I’ve got to get going. Maybe I’ll see you around?”       She starts to walk away, but I grab her hand, reeling her back in. I’m not ready for her to go, yet I don’t want to seem like some crazy stalker guy.       “Can I see you again? You know, outside of an elementary school?” I ask, my eyes bearing down into hers, begging for her to say yes.       She hesitates, and I’m afraid she’s about to say no when she finally responds. “I don’t date. I’m not looking for anything serious, so if that’s what you’re looking for, I’m the wrong girl.”       My cock practically sings at her words. A no strings attached relationship with a hot teacher right before I deploy? I couldn’t have asked for better luck.       “I don’t do relationships, either, Lucy. I just want to get to know you and to have some fun. No feelings, no strings, no nothing,” I tell her, and watch as a look of relief washes over her.       She starts digging in her purse and I watch as she scribbles something on a piece of paper before hanging it to me. “Number’s right there. Call me when you’re feeling adventurous,” she says. Before I can say anything, she spins around and swiftly walks away, leaving me to wonder just how adventurous she can be.

1234~ About the Author ~

        I'm a twenty six year old book junkie who is also obsessed with sports. Bengals, Buckeyes, Reds are my teams! I work for the government during the day, hang out with Air National Guard on the weekends, and have been married to my own book boyfriend for over seven years. We currently live right outside of Dayton, OH with our two cats.       If I’m not writing or looking through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find me curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. I love my sports almost as much as I love my books. My other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter.
