blurb

Nothing ventured, nothing banged…

Ash
I still don’t know how it happened. One minute I was arguing with my arrogant competitor–our usual trash-talk over who deserves the larger commission. But somehow I went from throwing down to kneeling down…
It can never happen again. I don’t even like Braht. He’s too slick. He’s a manipulating mansplaining party boy in preppy clothes.
So why can’t I get him out of my head?
Braht
There are two things I know without question. One: Ash and I are destined for each other. Two: never trust a man with a unibrow.
Ash is my missing my piece. She’s the sweet cream to my gourmet espresso. And nothing gets me going faster than her contempt for me. They don’t call her the Ashkicker for nothing.
Eventually I’ll win her over…if my past doesn’t ruin everything first.

Cover Reveal: Feeling Hot by Elle Kennedy

Feeling-Hot-Ebook

Title: Feeling Hot

Author: Elle Kennedy

Series: Out of Uniform #3

Release Date: December 19th, 2017

 

blurb

A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy! Special pre-order and release week SALE price $0.99!

In tight quarters, anything can happen…

Fresh off a six-month deployment, Navy SEAL Cash McCoy is determined to end his celibacy streak with a night of down and dirty sex. Instead, he gets an interrupted hook-up with a hot blonde who vanishes without a way for him to contact her. When he’s asked to keep an eye on—and hands off—his CO’s sister for a few weeks to guard her from a psycho-stalker ex, Cash accepts the assignment as a distraction…and gets the surprise of his life.

Jen Scott knows she needs protection, but she’s not looking forward to being babysat by some straight-laced yes-man her overprotective brother can boss around. Finding out her new roomie is none other than the sexy stranger who was seconds away from shaking her world apart changes everything. Orders be damned, Cash is the one man capable of helping her explore her sexuality, and she’s even willing to break her own rule—never date military men—to get the gorgeous SEAL into her bed.

Only, Cash makes it clear he wants much more than she bargained for. Not just her body, but the one thing Jen promised herself she’d never give to a man in uniform. Her heart.

Warning: Sexy SEAL? Check. Sassy heroine determined to seduce him? Check. Scorching hot sex bound to make you blush? Double check. A threesome and some man-on-man action? Triple check. You’ve been warned.

Mark Your Calendars- December!

myc

Here are some books I’m looking forward to reading in December! What are you most excited to read?

 

divide

  1. Love, Life, and the List by Kasie West. Releasing December 26th.

Seventeen-year-old Abby Turner’s summer isn’t going the way she’d planned. She has a not-so-secret but definitely unrequited crush on her best friend, Cooper. She hasn’t been able to manage her mother’s growing issues with anxiety. And now she’s been rejected from an art show because her work “has no heart.” So when she gets another opportunity to show her paintings Abby isn’t going to take any chances.

Which is where the list comes in.

Abby gives herself one month to do ten things, ranging from face a fear (#3) to learn a stranger’s story (#5) to fall in love (#8). She knows that if she can complete the list she’ll become the kind of artist she’s always dreamed of being. But as the deadline approaches, Abby realizes that getting through the list isn’t as straightforward as it seems… and that maybe—just maybe—she can’t change her art if she isn’t first willing to change herself.

 

2. Over Us, Over You by Whitney G. Releasing December 7th.

Subject: Delete this message after you read it…

Dear Hayley,

I’m assuming you’re still hungover, so I’ll make this brief.

Last night, you slipped under my sheets (without my permission), and we almost had sex. I got the hell out of the bed once I realized it was you, and I took you home.

That’s the story.

The end.

Period.

Just in case you’ve forgotten, you’re my best friend’s little sister. We will never be anything more. (We can’t be anything more.) Our previous friendship is still unresolved–or “over” in your terms, so I’d prefer if we worked on becoming ‘just friends’ again since you’re in town.

Nonetheless, I’m not a man who leaves questions unanswered–even the drunken ones, so to properly close our inappropriate conversation:

1) Yes, I liked the way your lips felt against mine when you were on top of me.
2) Yes, I do “prefer” rough sex, but I’m pretty sure I wasn’t rough with you.
3) No, I had no idea you were still a virgin…

This message never happened,
Corey

 

 

3. The V Card by Lauren Blakely. Releasing December 13th

When you think about how easy it is to lose keys, phones, sunglasses and your dignity on social media, you might figure it’d be a cinch for me to ditch my V Card.
You’d be wrong.
At 25, I run a successful business, live in a fantastic apartment, and have fabulous friends to go out with any night of the week. And yet I’m still a card-carrying member of a club I don’t want to belong to anymore. Good thing I know just the man for the deflowering job—my brother’s business partner and best friend.
Graham Campbell is charming, smart, and, I’m told, oh-so-skilled in the sack. As long as I keep my eyes on the prize, there’s no way this pluck-the-flower project could possibly complicate matters.
***
Work and pleasure. As the CEO of a fast-growing company, I’ve been enjoying both to the fullest. What do I do when the board throws me for an unexpected loop so I can keep my business in my hands? I enlist the help of my best friend’s little sister since she holds a big stake in the company. But then I learn there’s another big stake she wants.
The one between my legs.
I can do this. Seven nights to teach her everything I know in the bedroom. There’s no way I’ll fall for her, even though she’s earning top grades in every single sinfully sexy lesson. And turns out I’m learning something too. The trouble is I don’t have the answer key to what to do when I fall hard for her.
And that throws a whole new hitch in my plans.

 

 

4. Man Hands by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby. Releasing December 11th. (I read this one and it’s SO good!)

He puts the “screw” in screwball comedy…

BRYNN

At thirty-four, I’m reeling from a divorce. I don’t want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn’s Dips and Balls.

But my friends aren’t having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I’m still taking a hard pass.

Free designer cocktails, they say. And that’s a game-changer.

Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That’s when I lose my mind. But when my besties dare me to leap on the first single man I see, they don’t expect me to actually go through with it.

TOM

All I need right now is some peace and quiet while my home renovation TV show is on hiatus. But when a curvy woman in a red wrap dress charges me like she’s a gymnast about to mount my high bar, all I can do is brace myself and catch her. What follows is the hottest experience of my adult life.

I want a repeat, but my flying Cinderella disappears immediately afterward. She doesn’t leave a glass slipper, either—just a pair of panties with chocolate bunnies printed on them.

But I will find her.

 

 

5. Team Player by L.J. Shen, Sara Ney, Ella Fox, Charleigh Rose, Adriana Locke, Mandi Beck, Kate Stewart, Meghan Quinn, Emma Scott, Kennedy Ryan, Rochelle Paige.

Ten authors. Ten Novellas. This is one thick…. book.

blurb

She’s everywhere.

Ex-wife.

Love of his life.

The last person in the world he wanted to see…ever.

And now that he’s working beside her every day, he can’t escape her. Her scent, glimpses of her smile, even the tension in the air that makes his body hum with the kind of need he’d only experienced with one person-all of it is driving him over the edge.

Brant Wellington was certain of three things:

Alcohol wasn’t going to solve this.

He really was losing his F-ing mind.

And his gorgeous ex-wife was going to be the death of him.

 

excerpt

It was Brant.

Always Brant.

Maybe that was because they’d never had any real closure. Just fighting, yelling, and then silence.

God, she’d hated the silence so much more than the yelling.

The silence crackled with tension—it was always filled with more meaning than when words were actually spoken.

It wasn’t the yelling that had killed their relationship.

It was the silence that had followed. When he had every opportunity to fix it—and didn’t.

Why was it so hard to move on? Probably because she hadn’t tried.

Instead, she’d worked. Tried to stay positive. And hoped.

Damn hope. Stupid hope.

“He’s not coming back for me,” she whispered, knowing that if she finally admitted he wasn’t coming, she would have to take her part of the blame in why. Because it wasn’t just on him to come running back. A small part of her knew that it was her job to meet him halfway. Instead, she’d ignored the need in his eyes, the desperate plea in his voice, and allowed grief to swallow her whole. Because at the time she’d needed someone to blame, and it was easier blaming him than herself.

 

 

review

When I first read the blurb and discovered this would be a second chance romance book, I expected it to be packed with punches of emotion. I didn’t expect it to be so real, raw, and heart breaking. It truly brings out every emotion, and is such a lovely tale that shows that true love never fades away.

Brant has been on the road of self destruction, in the form of endless booze and women, sine his divorce. He is broken, filled with guilt and anger over what happened between him and his ex wife, Nikki. He made me both want to slap and hug him.

Nikki is also dealing with a lot of pain. She really breaks your heart at times. Since the divorce, Nikki has been filling her days with work- working as a masseuse at a resort. She finds her own little “family” there, and their love and friendship helps numb the pain a little.

Suddenly Brant finds himself working with Nikki. The two are obviously still attracted to each other, and still love each other, underneath the pain. They have a chemistry that can’t be denied.

The book also shows glimpse of the past, showing Brant and Nikki so deeply in love and happy, and gradually losing that along the way due to circumstances. (I don’t want to spoil it by saying too much).

During the emotional roller coaster that Brant and Nikki take you on, there are also moments of joy, humor, flirty banter and oh so sexy scenes. This is one of those books that is equally heart warming and heart breaking.

As I mentioned, it is number 3 in the series, and while you absoultly do not have to read the previous two (The Bachelor Auction and The Playboy Bachelor), I would recommend it! Those books feature Brant’s brothers, and you do meet Brant in them.

If you love angsty, emotional and steamy books, with a happy ending, you have to check out The Bachelor Contract!

blurb

I might be a typical guy, but these last few years, my love life’s been anything but. From crazy ex-girlfriends to one night stands who are stage-five clingers, my relationships go bad faster than the milk in your fridge. The only constant has been my best friend Maggie.

Fresh off a bad breakup of her own, I invite Maggie to my guy’s skiing weekend knowing she needs an escape from reality. But then something funny starts to happen. I start noticing things about her that I never noticed before.

She’s beautiful and doesn’t know it, she’s funny without even trying, and now she’s suddenly single for the first time in forever.

Sharing a hotel room with her proves to be the tipping point in our very platonic friendship. Suddenly I want to put my hands, my mouth, and my … other parts … all over her gorgeous body. I want to claim her, make sure no man touches her ever again. But then her groveling ex shows up, and Maggie’s torn.

Am I ready to screw up the best relationship I’ve ever had for a shot at something more?

 

review

Sam and Maggie met in college, and have been best friends ever since. They know each other like the back of their hands, and have been there for each other through all of life’s ups and downs.

So when Maggie breaks up with her boyfriend, Sam doesn’t think twice about inviting her along on his boys trip. What can go wrong?

Well, suddenly Sam is seeing Maggie in a new light. Everything about her seems different, yet she is the same old Maggie. Only now Maggie is making his heart pound and his palms sweat. Not to mention the fact he can’t stop thinking about kissing her.

But… it’s not possible she feels the same way, right?

The Bed Mate was sweet, funny and sexy. It was enjoyable, even though it was completely predictable. I thought the friendship between Maggie and Sam felt real, so authentic. Their playful banter and borderline flirty was fun, and made me smile.

I appreciated the different emotions and confusion that comes with crossing that lines from “just friends” to “more than friends”. And as always with Kendall Ryan, the writing was amazing.

I did have a few problems. Sam, while super swoony and witty, seemed too perfect at times. Too good to be true. And Maggie somehow seemed so oblivious to what an amazing guy he was.

But all in all it’s a fun, fast (novella), sweet read that will make you smile and laugh. A great read in time for the holidays!

blurb

I crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident.

I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister’s bed—her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should’ve left…

I didn’t.
I didn’t jump out.
I didn’t get embarrassed.
I relaxed.
And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved.

I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept.

The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could’ve stayed forever, I would have.
He became my sanctuary.

Because—four hours earlier—my twin sister killed herself.

blurb

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.
We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s.
Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an
intense, mutual attraction.
I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we
danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt,
dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the
opposite effect on me.
We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New
York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.
I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming,
cocky, gorgeous-as- sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of
our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he
demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she
could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back
home.
I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s
house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my
mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend
that time screwing each other out of our systems.
Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to
lose?
Nothing, I thought.
It’s just sex, not love.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…
