Cover Reveal: Undeniable Love by Kelly Elliott



~ Synopsis ~

Tristan Williams thought the path of his life was on the right journey. He had a successful career, good looks, and a carefree lifestyle. One conversation changed Tristan’s way of thinking forever as his father presented him with a bottle, representing his journey and forcing unwanted thoughts of a lasting relationship to the surface. Running from the fear of commitment, he pushed away the only woman he ever had feelings for and turned to the one girl he knew he didn’t love. 


Ryn Webster was finally putting her past behind her. Moving to Texas and concentrating on the success of her own company, she had her life almost where she wanted it. One thing was missing though…love. She thought she had found love with Tristan until he casted her aside.


After being hurt by Tristan, Ryn does whatever she can to push him from her heart, even if it means being with a man she doesn’t love. 


Regardless of the path one thinks they are on, the journey of life can cause unexpected turns, altering the planned course. Will Tristan and Ryn’s bottle be tossed about, lost in the rocky waves of life? Or will calm seas prevail to help Tristan and Ryn finally find their journey of love…together?

Fall Rush Cover


~ Synopsis ~

Embry Harris is desperate to turn things around her senior year of college. She’s determined to make more responsible choices and rid herself of the stigma plaguing her. But because of her job and the hot bartender who goads her into making impulsive decisions, it isn’t going to be easy. Stede Bennett’s mission since returning from his overseas tour is to get his degree. The last thing he needs is a spoiled sorority girl distracting him. Being a Marine taught him many things, except how to handle a beautiful woman in constant need of saving. Protecting Embry from the jerk threatening to ruin her reputation is how Stede begins to lose his heart. Being empowered by Stede’s words is how Embry starts losing hers. If the schemer responsible for pushing them together gets his way, they could lose their chance for happiness. 


~ Review ~
4 Stars

This was a fast, easy read.  I loved the story.  I knew it was a novella going in, but I wanted more.  I loved these characters.

Embry is always being harassed. It has been two years since she ran from Chase and he still calls her a tease.  All the fraternity brothers harass her also.  She just wants it to stop.  She wants to leave the fraternity, but can't.  She is stuck in a place she wants out of.  She meets Stede and starts to feel things she never has before.  Can she let him in? Or is he just looking for one thing?

Stede is instantly drawn to Embry which is a shock since he doesn't date sorority girls.  He then finds out something Chase is up to and wants to protect Embry.  Will he protect her or will he betray her?

I really hope that some of these other characters get a book.  I wouldn't mind more on Stede and Embry either!!  This is a great novella when you are looking for a short read!!! Great way to spend waiting at an appointment or getting your hair done.  I cannot wait to read more books by Meda White!!



~ Excerpt ~

“Wait a second.” Stede caught Embry’s arm. “I can’t let you walk home by yourself at this hour.” “I walk all over the place by myself.” “If you get raped and killed, I’ll never forgive myself.” “Okay, now I’m scared. Thanks for that. Do you have a savior complex?” “Only around you.” He was good. Too damn good. Nobody, no guy, said stuff like that and meant it. “Are you the type of savior who rescues the damsel from the trouble you create?” His grin sent a jolt of excitement through her. “I can see why you might think that, but no, I’m a responsible adult.” He stood. “Now, how ‘bout I give you a ride?” “How adult are you?” He tilted his head to the side and raised his eyebrows. “You’re a flirty little thing.” “I was asking your age, not how X-rated you can get. You’re a guy. I already know the answer to that one.”

Cover Reveal and Release Day Blitz: Bitterssweet Love by J.L. Beck


~ Synopsis ~

I’m a slut. Or at least that’s what everyone calls me. I guess that’s what you get when everyone think’s you've slept with the whole football team and then some.
My junior year of high school I gave my heart to Corey Winchester. He was handsome, cocky, and a pure gentlemen. Then everything changed in an instant. When I found out he was spreading malicious rumors about me, after I refused to sleep with him I was utterly surprised. To add to it, he broke up with me in front of the whole school. I essentially became the laughing stock of the town. People that I once called my friends became my enemies. Finding a way to ruin my life one day at a time. Now the shitty part is I should have known a pretty boy like him was too good to be true. After ruining my reputation and life I did everything I could to stay under the radar, but it just wasn't enough. I slowly learned that all the torment, and hate was all for one thing. Revenge. That’s what Corey wanted, and why I didn't know. Then Rex Winchester came along. Corey’s cousin, and someone I knew I shouldn't be getting close with. A whole six feet of hotness, a smile that melted the panties off of every girl in a fifty mile radius, and a heart of gold. He could have anyone he wanted, so why he chose me Corey’s ex, the bullied, slutty girl was beyond me. All I knew was that I wanted him. I wanted him more than anything. The problem was, I couldn't tell if Rex, was just like Corey or if his intentions were as innocent as he was making them out to be.
My names Jenna Haines, and this is the story of how the one thing I wanted.. turned out to be the one thing that would hurt me the most. What happens when the one thing you least expect to happen, does? When all the lies and secrets come out. Well you're about find out.

4.5 Stars

This book was really good.  It's a fun, fast read and I was sad to see it end.  I need more.

Jenna is dreading her last year of high school.  She is tired of being bullied. She is known as the school slut all because her ex spread rumors about her. She just brushes it off and tries to ignore it.  But when she finally starts to like another guy she doesn't want to like him because he is her ex's cousin.  She has one person she can trust.  Her best friend Mimi. But can she honestly trust anyone? Can she trust him to not betray her?  Or will she be betrayed again?

Rex doesn't understand how everyone can treat Jenna so badly.  He wants to protect her, but he needs to get her to trust him.  He acts like he wants her and doesn't like Corey, but can he honestly dislike his cousin.  Is he working with his cousin to destroy her life? What will he do for her to gain her trust?  Is he betraying her?  Or is he one of the good guys?

I cannot wait to read more about Jenna, Mimi, Corey, Rex and Ryder.  It's going to be a long wait for these books.  You definitely want to read this book.

Cover Reveal and Giveaway: Consensual by Livia Jamerlan

~ Synopsis ~

Braelynn Wolf is focused on two things: work and law school.

That is how she survives.
That is how she’ll make a difference.

Until she meets HIM.

Peyton Haas is sexy, dangerous, and forbidden. The defense attorney on Braelynn’s first legal case is the only man who can cloud her judgment. Unable to stay away, she finds herself lying to everyone around her so she can spend time with the man who makes her feel things she never felt before—things she never dreamed possible.

With the legal case hanging on a thread, can Braelynn ignore the relationship she has built with Peyton?

Or will she succumb to the man who has the power to throw away her future?








~ Excerpt ~

I skimmed my thumb over the skin of her neck. “I’m very available and want nothing more than to fuck you.”
I brought my hand to the hem of her skirt, lifting it slowly. I felt the edge of her stocking attached to a garter, and my cock twitched as I pushed up against her, bringing my lips to her ear. “Come back to my place, Lynn, wearing nothing but these.” I pulled on the elastic, letting it smack against her smooth skin.
“Haas, I can’t. We can’t.”
“You remember what I told you, don’t you? I always get what I want.” I pushed her skirt higher, sliding my finger across her lace thong. “I can be very persuasive.” The small whimper that escaped her throat only enticed me more. “I promise to make this pussy pulse with pleasure.” I slid my finger back and forth against the delicate material. “If you want, I can take you right here.”
“Please, don’t—”
I brought my lips to hers and she responded, allowing me in. Her tongue wrestled mine as I ground my cock against her abdomen. She melted in my hands, letting me guide her body how I wanted. I explored her mouth, imagining what it would be like to have my cock shoved between her soft, plump lips.
As I moved my hand to pull her panties, the emergency bell began to ring, disrupting us. Reaching over, I released the brake and pressed the fifth floor button as I pulled away from her. Intoxicating. That’s what she was. Her eyes, her smell, her hair, her skin. I fixed my erection and looked over at her.
“You know where to find me.”
She didn’t speak. She just stood there, flustered, against the wall. When the door opened I walked out, not looking back. I hoped I’d left her high and wet and needing me.
I wasn’t one to chase women, but I couldn’t get her out of my mind.

hourglass cover
   ~ Synopsis ~

     

Best friends since birth, Brooke Reid and Savannah Prescott, spend their days working together at top fashion magazine Hourglass, while enjoying all that the Denver nightlife has to offer – but sharing a man – no way.

One of Denver’s most eligible bachelors, Luke Wellington, can have any woman he wants and he knows it. Putting his player skills to the test, he destroys a friendship and makes two women fall in love with him as he sits back and enjoys the best of both worlds.

Brooke Reid is a woman looking for her happily ever after, and the day she literally ran in to him, she thought she’d found it. Charming, charismatic, a true gentleman – what more could she ask for? Things are going perfectly until her best friend struts in the elevator and claimed his lips right in front of her.

Savannah Prescott is interested in one thing, having a good time with every single man Denver has to offer. Being tied down is too much of a bore for her free spirited ways. Or so she thinks, but when her best friend starts dating her Friday night fling, she realizes she may be ready to turn in her game card and settle down into a real relationship.

When both girls come to the realization that they are after the same man, it means all-out war. Best friends until the end, or at least until him.

5 Stars

I absolutely LOVED this book.  It wasn't something you have read before.  It had me wanting to castrate a certain someone though :)

Savannah and Brooke have been best friends forever.  They are so excited that everything is falling into place with their lives.  Well all except the man issue, but that's all about to change. For the better? Or for worse?

They always said friends forever and no one would come between them, but can they stick by that?  They have for years until the most eligible bachelor Luke/Lucas comes into both of their lives.  He is a player and plays them against each other.

Brooke is the good girl and wants a committed relationship before she has sex.  She is the perfect woman to be a wife.  The girl guys want to take home and meet the family.  But can she keep Lucas all to herself?

Savannah is the fun, carefree woman who enjoys wild nights with guys.  She doesn't mind the one night stands.  She is out to have fun. Though she is starting to want to settle down, but will Luke be the one?

This book is great. It had me laughing in places and pissed in others. You do not want to miss out in this book. It will leave you salivating for more!!!




~ Excerpt ~
Finally! I thought to myself, taking Luke’s face between the palms of my hands and laying an earth shattering kiss on him right in the elevator for my best friend to see. “I’ve been dying to introduce you to my…” Releasing Luke’s face I looked to my left and then to my right. “Where in the hell did she go?”Glancing back at Luke’s panic-stricken face, I tried to figure out why Brooke had bolted. What in the hell is wrong with that woman? Wrapping my arms around Luke’s neck, I kissed his cheek. “You look like you’ve just seen a ghost. What’s wrong?” As he was shaking his head no, I pulled my arms from around his neck and placed them at my side.“Nothing, today is just really busy. Do you know by chance where her office is?”Confused, I scrunched my eyes together. “Who, Brooke?” Luke nodded. “Well of course I do, Luke, that’s my best friend, the one I’ve been dying to introduce you to.”His face turned white as a sheet. “Shit” he mumbled under his breath.I stepped out of the elevator on the ninth floor and walked with Luke toward our parking spaces, he was clearly shaken as beads of sweat were now lining his hairline. “Luke, you’re sweating and I’m not even wearing a revealing top, are you sure you’re okay?” He nodded again. What is wrong with everyone today? I’m dealing with Brooke’s disappearing act, and Luke seems to have swallowed his tongue. “You better be because I’m not in the mood for another rain check tonight.”Winking at him, I hopped into my car and then took off for my photo shoot. I picked up my phone to dial Brooke as I zoomed through traffic. Her cell went straight to voice mail, so I called the office and got the same thing, voice mail. Trying her cell one more time only to be dumped into her voice mail box for the third time, I conceded. “Brooke, what happened to you in the elevator? I wanted to introduce you to Luke. Isn’t he gorgeous? I’ll be out at a shoot all day, so we’ll have to catch up later. In the meantime, Google Lucas Wellington, his pictures are to die for, but nothing compares to the body under those clothes, and most importantly, his huge you know what! Let’s do a quick dinner tonight, my place. I’ll pick up takeout on the way home, and we’ll have Carl sneak us into your new condo for a tour. We’ll have to wrap up early though; I’m planning on having Luke as my dessert. Love you.” After I hung up, I cranked my music up as loud as it would go and sang along with Katy Perry and Juicy J, making up my own lyrics to their chart topper, Dark Horse. “Her love is like a drug, Luke was tryna hit it and quit it. But Savannah is so dope Luke messed around and got addicted”

Blog Tour and Giveaway: A Fighter's Desire by L.P. Dover



~ Synopsis ~

Two is always better than one.

Knowing a fighter’s desires and needs are one thing, but actually experiencing them is another. A Fighter’s Desire gives you not one, but two stories full of hardcore passion, angst, and action that’ll leave you breathless and aching for more.

Part One: 

Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were in the ring. They loved a good fight, and that’s exactly what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren. The brothers had a habit of sharing things—including women—and she happened to be the only one they truly craved. However, the problem was getting her to agree to their proposition. It was one she couldn’t refuse, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. Nonetheless, she sure as hell was going to enjoy it.

Part Two: 

Fighting temptation isn’t easy when you’re constantly around the one person you’ve desired more than any other. Gabriella Reynolds was warned by her brother, MMA Heavyweight Champion Matt Reynolds, to stay away from his friends; they only wanted one thing, and in the end they’d break her heart. She heard it, but the desire to have the one man she couldn’t led her down the forbidden path to pursue him; he also happens to be one of her brother’s best friends. Tyler Rushing can’t deny his attraction to her, and he’s afraid she’ll want more than what he can give her. When he finds out that’s not the case … everything changes. They have no choice but to keep their time a secret, and it’s a secret that’ll stay with them forever.

4.5 Stars

This book was amazing!!! I did not want to sleep and I didn't want it to end, but like all good things they must come to an end.  I just hope we get more of all these characters in more books.  I need more of everyone!!

Part One:
Ashleigh is a spitfire that doesn't take any crap from anyone.  She tries to stay away from the Twins of Terror, but can she?  Will she regret it or will she give in so she doesn't have any what ifs?  She knows what she wants, but will she go after it?  Will she get the one she wants? Or lose everything because of her deal?

Part Two:
Gabby is the sister of an MMA fighter who is over protective and doesn't like to let her have fun.   He is determined to keep her away from his MMA buddies.  He after all knows what they all are liking for and that is a good time.  He doesn't want her getting caught up with one of them. Though she has her sights set on Tyler.  But she can't catch his attention because he knows she is off limits.  Especially since her brother is his best friend.  What happens when she is determined to have just one night with Tyler?  Will he cave? Or will it turn into more?

This is an amazing opening to this series!!! I need more of all these characters though.  I was a little disappointed with how it ended because both parts where left unfinished in my eyes.  I needed some closure. But this book is a must read!!



~ Excerpts ~

PART 1:



“You don’t even know me,” I challenged. “Why do you want me to be your date? You saw me for one second when you were up in the ring. I could be the biggest bitch in the world for all you know.”
“That could be true. If you want the honest truth,” he said, gazing down my body, “I saw you in that red dress and all I could think about was how hot it would be to fuck you in it.”
Holding in my gasp, I tightened my legs together to keep my clit from throbbing out of control. It pissed me off that my body responded to him, but it could also be because he was so close; brushing his heated body against mine, and smelling so amazingly delicious. The wild side of me wanted to tell him to take me right then and there, but the logical side wanted to slap the shit out of him.
“Do you honestly get women by saying stuff like that?” I asked dryly, without a hint of a smile.
His grin grew wider. “Most of the time. So what do you say? Do you want to be my date for the night … the whole night?”
Yes, my mind screamed at me.
“No,” I snapped, making his smug smile disappear. “I’m not one of your little groupies, Ryley, and I sure as hell am not going to beg for your attention like what you’re used to. You need to find someone else. I’m not interested.”
You just lied again, I scolded myself.
Turning on my heel, I headed for the door and opened it, only to be stopped by a hand grasping my arm and the door shutting quickly in front of me. “Don’t you see? I don’t want anyone else. I saw you and you are what I want.”
Laughing, I turned around and yanked my arm out of his hold. “Tell that to someone who’ll believe you, Ryley. I don’t fall that easily, especially for someone who hasn’t had to work for a woman. You’ll have to do much better than that.”
Or else I’m not going to play the game.


PART 2:

Moving closer, he lightly grazed the strap of my blue tank top with his fingers and let them slide down my bare arm. “And what about Ryley? What’s up with him being all over you yesterday?”
I bit my lip and smiled triumphantly. “That was just to see if we could get a rise out of you.” Looking down at his jeans, I said, “And I’d have to say it worked.”
With his hand around my waist, he pulled me in tight against his body and groaned, letting his cock push into my stomach. “You know this will have to be a onetime thing, Gabriella. Your brother will kill me if he finds out.”
Then I guess we need to make sure he doesn’t,” I murmured before closing the distance.

Sneak Peek: All For This by Lexi Ryan


Releasing August 4, 2014

New Adult Contemporary Romance

Pre-order NOW

 photo ibookstorebadge_zps88ced49e.jpg


~ Synopsis ~

**ALL FOR THIS is book three in the Here and Now series. It is not a stand-alone and it’s intended to be read after LOST IN ME and FALL TO YOU.**

What if you would never remember the day you made the most important decision of your life?

That’s what they’re telling me about the day of my accident—the day I put on Max’s ring and chose him over Nate. I’m counting on the wisdom behind a decision I don’t remember making.

Max is amazing—sexy, sweet, and kind. I was starting to believe happily-ever-after might be in my future after all. Then the unthinkable happened and my world imploded. If I’m going to make this work with Max, I need my missing memories, or at least answers from about those five days before my accident.

But what does my future hold if those answers aren’t anything like I imagined?







The following excerpt from ALL FOR THIS by its very nature contains spoilers for the first two books in the Here and Now series, LOST IN ME and FALL TO YOU. If you hate spoilers and haven’t read the first two books, I recommend you don’t read any further.

~ Excerpt ~

Max

“How are you holding up? Did it go okay with Nate last night?”
She stiffens at his name. “He asked me to move to LA.”
Of course he did. “And what did you say?”
She blinks at me. “I’m not leaving New Hope. This is my home.”
“He wanted more than for you to move to LA.” I take a step closer. I need to touch her. I wonder if she knows she’s pulling away from me, if she can feel it like I can. It’s as if we’re connected by a thousand little threads like those in a woven rug and they’ve been breaking one at a time since the moment Nate came back into town. With every breath, I feel another thread snap. “He wanted you.”
She shrugs. “I’m already taken.”
I draw in a deep breath. She lifts her hand to my face and skims her fingers along my jaw.
I groan softly and slide my hand into her hair as I lower my mouth to hers. She’s soft and sweet, and I need more of her.
Taking a fistful of her skirt, I yank her dress up around her waist and find the cotton of her panties. She gasps, and I rub her through the fabric as her fingers curl into my back. My lips find her neck and the skin in the sensitive juncture of neck and shoulder.
“Max,” she says. But it’s not the normal breathy, needy whispering of my name. The word is a warning. A yield sign. “Max.”
My hand stills and I pull back to look into her eyes. I’m blindsided by the apology I see there. “Let’s move in together.”
“What?” She blinks at me. If she’s thinking I have the world’s worst timing with important proposals, she’s not wrong.
“We could rent out our apartments and use the money to rent a little place together. Someplace without those stairs that scare the living shit out of me every time I think of you climbing them. Someplace we can make our own.” I take her hand and squeeze. “You didn’t want to move in together last spring because you knew your mom would flip if you lived with a guy before marriage, but we’re not trying to maintain appearances anymore, are we?” She looks at the floor, and I tilt her chin back up so her eyes meet mine. “I could give two shits about appearances. I want to wake up with you in my arms, Hanna. I want to know I’m going to be right there when you need me, every time you need me. You and Claire are all that matter in my world. I want everything that matters to be what I come home to every night.”
“I’m sorry.” She steps back. “I just can’t. I’m too confused right now.”
My lungs burn as I fill them—it hurts to breathe in a world where Hanna isn’t mine.
“I know it’s not fair. And I want a future with you, but…”
“But you can’t stop thinking about him.”
“I can’t move in with you right now,” she says softly. “That wouldn’t be fair to either of us. It’s not that simple.”
“You keep saying that.”
I swallow back the rest of what I want to say right along with my anger, frustration, and the betrayal I’ve never allowed myself to feel. While I was waiting for her to take my ring, she was with another man, and I was never allowed to be angry because that man died and she needed to grieve.
I drag a hand through my hair and look at the ceiling. “Was it that simple when you made love to him?”
“Can we not do this?”
Torment is etched across her face, and I can’t stand to know I’m the one who put it there. I pull her against my chest.
“I won’t rush you, but remember something for me,” I whisper into her hair. “You put on my ring.”

Once a college English professor, I now write full time.  I live in rural Indiana, where, when I'm not writing, I get to hang out with my husband and two kids-a six-year-old boy and a two-year-old hellion, er, girl.  Not surprisingly, reading and writing remains my favorite activities, though both come in bits and pieces these days, not the big hunks of time I enjoyed before I had children.  When I'm feeling virtuous, I like to go running (I use that word liberally.  I'm really, really slow) or I do yoga.  Don't worry, I'm always careful to balance out such activities with a hearty serving of ice cream or a chocolate martini.

Release Day Blitz: Bittersweet Love by J.L. Beck


~ Synopsis ~

I’m a slut. Or at least that’s what everyone calls me. I guess that’s what you get when everyone think’s you've slept with the whole football team and then some.
My junior year of high school I gave my heart to Corey Winchester. He was handsome, cocky, and a pure gentlemen. Then everything changed in an instant. When I found out he was spreading malicious rumors about me, after I refused to sleep with him I was utterly surprised. To add to it, he broke up with me in front of the whole school. I essentially became the laughing stock of the town. People that I once called my friends became my enemies. Finding a way to ruin my life one day at a time. Now the shitty part is I should have known a pretty boy like him was too good to be true. After ruining my reputation and life I did everything I could to stay under the radar, but it just wasn't enough. I slowly learned that all the torment, and hate was all for one thing. Revenge. That’s what Corey wanted, and why I didn't know. Then Rex Winchester came along. Corey’s cousin, and someone I knew I shouldn't be getting close with. A whole six feet of hotness, a smile that melted the panties off of every girl in a fifty mile radius, and a heart of gold. He could have anyone he wanted, so why he chose me Corey’s ex, the bullied, slutty girl was beyond me. All I knew was that I wanted him. I wanted him more than anything. The problem was, I couldn't tell if Rex, was just like Corey or if his intentions were as innocent as he was making them out to be.
My names Jenna Haines, and this is the story of how the one thing I wanted.. turned out to be the one thing that would hurt me the most. What happens when the one thing you least expect to happen, does? When all the lies and secrets come out. Well you're about find out.

~ Review ~
4.5 Stars

This book was really good.  It's a fun, fast read and I was sad to see it end.  I need more.

Jenna is dreading her last year of high school.  She is tired of being bullied. She is known as the school slut all because her ex spread rumors about her. She just brushes it off and tries to ignore it.  But when she finally starts to like another guy she doesn't want to like him because he is her ex's cousin.  She has one person she can trust.  Her best friend Mimi. But can she honestly trust anyone? Can she trust him to not betray her?  Or will she be betrayed again?

Rex doesn't understand how everyone can treat Jenna so badly.  He wants to protect her, but he needs to get her to trust him.  He acts like he wants her and doesn't like Corey, but can he honestly dislike his cousin.  Is he working with his cousin to destroy her life? What will he do for her to gain her trust?  Is he betraying her?  Or is he one of the good guys?

I cannot wait to read more about Jenna, Mimi, Corey, Rex and Ryder.  It's going to be a long wait for these books.  You definitely want to read this book.
