EXCERPT REVEAL!!!



Excerpt
You realize we’ve never been on a date?”  He smirks at me, and my stomach flutters. Riddick is right, we haven’t. We couldn’t go out in public when we were younger since we were forbidden. And now we can; we can do anything we want. Go anywhere. Simply just be. It’s as if time has frozen for one split second. A conversation similar to this one pops into my mind. He said the same thing to me once. How he wished we could go out, be seen. Tell the entire town that in spite of the rumors of his father killing my parents, we were two teenagers in love; and if we could overcome it, then they as adults should as well. We were never given that chance.

“Oh. Does this mean you’re asking me out? I mean, I’ve already proven I’ll give you whatever you want, so dating is irrelevant at this point, don’t you think?” He groans, lifts me up and over him. His hardness is pressing into my stomach. I lay my hands on his chest, my eyes fluttering to render my innocence.

“Temptation got you fucked last night. Don’t tempt me, my naughty little angel. I’ll fuck you until the only choice you have to get out of this bed is to crawl. So, yes, I’m asking you out. Just me and you.”

“Okay. Where will we be going?” I agree. My insides are dancing and jiggling about as I watch him reach up and stretch his arms above his head before bringing them down to grab my ass. I sigh. I fizzle, and I may internally blow up with the detonator button being my clit.

“You’ll see,” he utters. Voice stating it’s a secret. Whatever. I’ll go wherever he wants me to go as long as we’re together.

“Tell me about these?” I coax those words out with ease as I outline the spider web tattoo around one of his nipples. He laughs. I scowl.

“I’m serious. Do any of them have a special meaning?” I ask seriously this time. “I bet I could get off just by standing in the shower watching you wash these.” I trot on seductively.

“Same goes for me with watching you arch your back, your mouth-watering tits with those pink nipples begging me to suck them as you wash your hair.” He lifts his hand, tugs my hair out of the confines of the band, and pulls so that my neck is exposed.

Blurb
She told me Heaven would knock on my door one day.
That I would be swept away from the hell I lived in.
She was right about one thing and so wrong about the other.
Heaven came in the form of an angel just like she said.
Beautiful.
Perfect.
An angel.
And then.
My life became hell.
She disappeared. Vanished.
I left. Went to war. Killed. All for her.
Every face was the man who took her.
Every dream filled with her.
For twelve years I existed in hell. Breathed in the fires from down below.
Until her, the woman on the beach outside of my home.
Captivating.
Enchanting.
Mesmerizing.
It couldn't be my Cora, my angel, my heaven on earth.
She was dead.
Wasn't she?

REVIEW: Ex Games by Stella Rhys

Ex Games by Stella Rhys
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

What’s ice-cold but hotter than hell? Rebounding with your ex’s older brother, of course.

A perfect storm led me to this place. Ghosted by my fiancรฉ, I was suddenly broke, heartbroken and facing eviction. Enter Mason Leo, the six feet and two inches of pure muscle and arrogance I’ve hated with a passion since the day we met. The man is cocky, womanizing and ruinously gorgeous.

Worse than that, he’s my ex’s brother. And for the next two weeks, he gets to do with me as he pleases.

I’ll explain.

With both our exes – wait for it – set to marry each other in St. Lucia, I’ve agreed to let Mason pay my debts so long as I play his date. My only job is to keep my clothes on while I get my closure. Because as much as I hate Mason Leo, the man is a walking sex god. And in the name of revenge, he gets to take me out, show me off – dress, touch and kiss me with those wicked lips. It’s all for show, but every night in paradise with him brings more drinks, more drama and another temptation, so no matter what I do, I can’t stop reminding myself this:

There’s absolutely no good to come from f*cking my ex’s brother.

No matter how good it’ll feel.

**EX GAMES is a sexy, full-length standalone with a HEA**

REVIEW: Smokey by L. Wilder

Smokey by L. Wilder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

From NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author L. Wilder comes book five in the Satan's Fury Series, a standalone MC romance.

Smokey
You can't fight fate, especially when it brings you a girl like MJ Thompson. She wasn't just beautiful. No, she was so much more than that. She was smart with a smile full of magic and curves that drove me to distraction. I wanted her, but there was a catch: She was the lawyer handling my father's will. And as if that wasn't enough, her dad was a cop.

I should've known better than to get mixed up with a girl like her, but I just couldn't resist. I wanted to feel her body pressed against mine. I wanted to hear her call my name while she was wrapped in my arms, so I ignored my instincts. I made her mine. After one night, she had me, heart and soul. Every ounce of doubt, every second thought, vanished.

Life was good. I had my woman by my side. The club's new pipeline was moving forward, and I was coming to terms with my past. Then, without warning, it all fell apart. I lost her. She skipped town, leaving only a note and a lot of unanswered questions. I thought I had to let her go, but she had a secret. After discovering what she was hiding, there was nothing I wouldn't do to have her back in my arms.

Sometimes the road takes you on an unexpected turn, and you end up exactly where you're meant to be.

**Smokey is book five in the Satan's Fury MC, but it is considered a standalone romance. This book is intended for readers 18 and older due to violence and explicit language.

REVIEW: Pucking Beast by Colleen Masters

Pucking Beast by Colleen Masters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

Who knew getting body checked could feel this good? 

Whitney 
Graham Johnston is a beast. On and off the ice. 

I fell for him once back in college… I played right into his hands and fell right into his bed. 

He took my virginity and then demolished my heart all in the same day. 

Seeing him again after all these years is torture. 

I’ll never forgive him, and I’ll certainly never forget the pain he caused me—No matter how rich he is, no matter how handsome he is, no matter how great a father he is. 

Graham 
Rising to the top of Professional Hockey has been a challenge, but nothing compares to being a single father to two daughters. And it’s only getting harder as they get older. 

Now I need an au pair to help balance my professional life and take care of my girls when I take them on the road. 

But the damn nanny agency decided to play a cruel f*cking joke. They sent me a candidate that is perfect on paper, and my daughters love her… but she’s the one I ruined… the only true regret I carry with me to this day. 

Whitney Morgan. 

I’ve been a bastard and a heartbreaker, it’s true. But I always get what I want in the end. 

I’ll make this right. 


Pucking Beast is a full-length contemporary new adult sports romance novel clocking in at over 80,000+ words. 
HEA, No Cliff. 
This book contains sexually explicit content and adult language, 18+.

REVIEW: Center Mass by Lani Lynn Vale

Center Mass by Lani Lynn Vale
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

Luke Roberts came to the small lazy town of Kilgore, Texas with one thing on his mind: Forgetting. He wanted to forget why he left. Forget those emerald green eyes that haunted his dreams. And forget how it felt to have his heart ripped out of his chest by a woman who didn’t like the fact that he had a child. It was something he’d been doing a damn fine job of doing, too. Until Reese smashed through every one of his defenses, and made him feel again.

Reese Doherty was just trying to do the best for her little girl. So she moved to the little boomtown nearly an hour from where she grew up to be the school nurse for Kilgore’s littlest people. That’s where she met him. The SWAT officer and the man that would change her life forever. The sexy man who liked to drive fast, and live life like it should be lived. He drove her crazy, and became something she could barely live without.
But Luke was a hero. A man used to risking his life to make the world a safer place. Something Reese had to decide whether she could handle or not. Preferably before her and her daughter became too attached.

Just when she’s ready to give him her whole heart, her world takes a huge hit, and everything she thought she knew wasn’t as it seemed.

Luke wasn’t a quitter, though. Damn far from it, and he’d prove to her that he’d be there when the dust settled. Whether she wanted him to be or not.

There's so much about this book that I absolutely loved. The whole time I was reading I kept finding different parts I wanted to notate for my review, and here I am not knowing where to start! 

First I have to mention that one of the best aspects of Wallflowers is the fact that I had the awesome opportunity to walk River Street with the author and get a little inside scoop on the books setting. So Calla's home and Devin's office were perfectly pictured in my head as I read along. I think that gave the book a little something extra that I really enjoyed.

For the story itself, I have to say that I freaking loved it and I couldn't put it down. From page one, I was completely devoted to Calla and Devin's story. They were awesome. The whole book was awesome! I loved all the things! I fear I won't be able to do it justice in this review, but I'll try. 

What I loved most about Calla was that she was so easy to relate to. I have always been an avid reader and also felt a little like an outsider at times. I've always been kind of shy and find it hard to break out of that shell at times. If only I had my own Devin to move in next door ;)

Devin Hawthorne. Ohhh man, I love him. His alpha ways, his handsome self was just perfect. I loved how he was with Calla. 

The plot itself was really interesting and kept me intrigued the whole time. I loved the hilarious antics that the "Wallflowers" got up to. I was laughing throughout all of it! The supporting characters were awesome, and I can't even tell you how excited I am for the next two books! 

Another point I wanted to touch on was the books that Calla and her friends mentioned. Devil's Bride to be exact. I had never heard of that book, and I mentioned that to CP Smith and she highly recommended that I give it a try. Just to say, I did and loved it too! And that's saying something since I don't normally like Historical Romance. And, after reading it, I had an even more appreciation for Devin! ;)

I know I didn't recap the book, but I feel like it should be experienced first hand with no spoilers. What you should know, it's a great story with awesome characters, funny dialogue, a hint of seriousness to give it some extra heart, mystery and intrigue, great writing, and just enough steam to give it that extra somethin somethin ;)


Overall, it was another amazing read from an amazing author that I have been fortunate enough to meet in person and call friend. I have loved all of Ms. Smith's books and she definitely didn't disappoint with Wallflowers! I can't wait for the next book!
