Cover by: Okay Creations
NA, Contemporary Romance
 
Forgetting about Eve was the plan. Finding her at a party on my college campus was the last thing I expected.

But letting her go again isn’t an option—not this time. Juggling the life I want with the one I was born into may be near impossible, but for her, it’s a risk I’m willing to take.

My world has turned into a house of cards, where one wrong move can send it all crashing down…and us with it.

Eve:

 
Finally at a prestigious university—and on the path to living my dreams—I’ve left the darkness of the Blue Houses behind. Still, a whole new host of problems await me.

Vincent is here.

He’s king of the school, complete with a society princess by his side. I thought I wanted to know what he was hiding, but unlocking his biggest secret leads me into entirely new territory laced with danger
and lust…one I’m not sure I’ll survive.

*RISING must be read before reading RECKONING.

 
 
 
 
 

Reckoning (Vincent and Eve #2)Reckoning by Jessica Ruben
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Eve was enjoying her time as a Freshman at Columbia University. She earned her scholarship here. The future as a lawyer is her dream, and she is almost there.

Vincent has no idea that Eve is going to turn up where he is finishing school. He is wrapped up in several things at the moment. All things he does not want to taint Eve with. How to have her and not mix those worlds?

Their love is very sexy and highly emotional. This story is high with the heat and very heartfelt. As the sparks fly in many directions, Vincent stresses out trying to keep his worlds apart so they do not collide. I am so excited for the conclusion and hope the author hurries!

Book Blitz – The Boyfriend Experience

The Boyfriend Experience
J.A. Huss
(Jordan’s Game, #3)
Publication date: May 30th 2018
Genres: New Adult Romance Comedy

From NYT Bestselling Author, JA Huss, comes a new sexy standalone in the Jordan’s Game series.

 

I NEED A BOYFRIEND… and I need one now…

 

WANTED
One bad-ass man with boyfriend experience.
Must be willing to fight dirty and work weekends, nights, and overtime.

Bad attitude a must. Bonus points if you’re hot, athletic, and sporting tattoos.

 

When I asked Jordan Wells for a Boyfriend Experience game I didn’t expect to get stuck with billionaire real-estate agent, Lawton Ayers. He doesn’t exactly fit the job description.

 

 

WANTED
One professional woman with business experience.
Must be willing to build a future together.

Successful entrepreneur a must. Bonus points if you’re a crazy local legend.

When Jordan Wells offered up Oaklee Ryan a last-minute business partner to seal a deal I’ve been working on for years, I didn’t expect beautiful, sexy, and multi-orgasmic to be on her list of qualifications.

 

But that’s what I got. And she’s perfect just the way she is.

Too bad she doesn’t want me to be HER boyfriend. Because she bought me for someone else…

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

 

 

EXCERPT:

 

She’s smiling up at me, her brown eyes turned slightly yellow from the glow of the lights, her cheeks pink. Flushed from the exertion of sex. Her breathing slower now, but not her heart. Because I can feel it underneath me.

 

Still pounding.

 

Waiting for more.

 

Trying to match mine.

 

So we can keep time together.

 

I think that’s what hearts do. Keep time. Keep everything together. Keep this crazy thing called life in perspective.

 

“One more time here,” I say. “Then I’ll take you inside so I can get you naked.”

It’s too cold to make her take her clothes off. Even though I know she’d do that if I asked her to. I can already feel the chill of her beneath me. But my body heat will help. Will protect her from the cold.

 

The deluxe package includes a boyfriend blanket on a cold night.

 

She opens her legs, reaches down between them to pull her panties aside, and my hips adjust enough to allow my cock to slide up to her opening. Her fingers are grabbing my shoulder now. And even through the leather I can feel them dig.

 

I want to take the jacket off so she can leave marks on me. I want there to be nothing between us. But I want her to be on the bottom at least once. So she can look up and see the surreal fantasy version of the underside of her water tower just like I did. So we can share that special feeling of being with someone you adore in a way that can’t be repeated.

 

No one will ever make love to her like this again. Not even me. Because this is a moment and moments pass into other moments and no two are ever alike.

 

She thrusts her hips upward, trying to force me to enter her. I just grin, because not gonna happen. Not until I say so, at least.

 

“Come on,” she whispers, watching me intently. “Let’s go.”

 

“We’ve got time. There’s no rush.”

 

She thrusts upward again. “There is a rush. A rush I want to experience again. Don’t make me beg, Lawton Ayers.”

 

“Begging?” I ask playfully. “Is that something you do?”

 

She giggles, then gets serious real quick. She frowns. Pouts her lips. Widens her eyes. “Please,” comes out like a whimper. Like she’s been wounded and needs relief. Relief only I can administer.

 

“Just take a moment, Oaklee. Feel it with me.”

 

Her eyes narrow slightly. Like she’s trying to figure out what I’m asking.

 

“The game is over,” I say. “That’s what I want you to feel. We passed it by some time ago. I’m not sure when, exactly. But the game is over.”

 

“OK,” she says, her face relaxing. The pout is gone. The confusion is gone. And all her expectations seem to melt away. “We’re real,” she whispers.

“Nerd alert!” I tease, pointing a finger at myself, “I just bought a new book, and I’ve been waiting for it to release for nine months – nine! That’s a damn eternity in romance novel years. You’re lucky I dragged myself off the couch.”

Blog Tour – Pete & Daisy

 

 

 

Pete & Daisy
by Tani Hanes
Genre: NA Romance

 

Release date: May 14th 2018

 

 

Summary:

 

He needs a place to live, she needs a baby daddy.

 

Pietro Santangelo and Marguerite White are students at prestigious Columbia University in New York City. She is a fun-loving, free spirit who finds herself in a bit of a familial bind, he is an exchange student with a chronic case of poverty. They concoct a plan that they think will work, not realizing how much changes with two simple words

 

*****************

 

Pete merely looked at her and opened a box of books. He took some out and began placing them on the shelves, bending and stretching at his task. He had a nice back, broad shoulders and muscles that could be seen clearly under his light blue T-shirt.

 

Daisy watched for a minute, fascinated.

 

“Like what you see?” he asked without turning around.

She jumped at the sound of his voice. “Well, you’re the only thing in the room that’s moving, you know?” she said by way of explanation.

 

He turned around to look at her, books in either hand, a small grin on his face. “Of course, what was I thinking?” he asked rhetorically. “And look. We’re both adults here, hm?” He looked carefully at her. “The couch we just brought up here cost fifty dollars at the second-hand store, and has to be at least thirty years old. I don’t want to sleep on it, and I don’t think you’re going to want to sleep on it, either.”

 

She shook her head.

 

“So the bed is nice and big,” he continued. “I think we can manage, don’t you? We can share the bed.” He watched her for her reaction. “I give you my word this is not going to be a problem for me. At all. Is this going to be a problem for you?”

She looked at him. “Really? At all?” She recovered from the unintentional meaning of his words quickly. “No, it won’t be a problem for me, either,” she said firmly. “We can share the bed.”

Shopping Together

They ended up taking the subway; Daisy could tell that traffic in midtown and lower
Manhattan would be a mess because of the weather. They emerged from the station to gray skies and trash blowing across the sidewalks. It was a relief to duck into the store and remove their layers of clothing.

She looked through the various departments, asking Pete’s opinion on just about
everything. She wasn’t pregnant enough for full on maternity wear, so instead she picked out pants with elastic waists and loose, flowing shirts with lots of material.

 

Pete enjoyed watching her emerge from the fitting rooms in the various clothes. He was
supposed to look at her, after all, she needed his opinion.

 

She came out once wearing outrageous stretch pants with a colorful pattern of tulips
dancing around on a purple background. She turned around while smoothing them over her hips, looking at her reflection in the mirror, asking, “What do you think? Do they make my ass look huge?”

As Pete looked at the body part in question, silently telling himself that in those pants her
bottom looked like a bit of flowery perfection, she answered her own question, muttering,

 

“Who am I kidding? My ass looked huge before, looks like a fucking bus now.”
She looked up at him in the mirror. “Well? Too much? I should be trying to find pants that
don’t draw attention to that particular part of my body, huh?”

 

He dragged his eyes away from her delectable posterior, forcing himself to look at her
face as she chewed her lip, waiting for his opinion.

 

“What? No, definitely not,” he replied decisively. “They look absolutely lovely on you.
Very cheerful, especially on a nasty day like today. They’re like a little bit of springtime.”

He grinned at her. “In fact, I’d say you need these pants–no, we need these pants in our lives.”

 

He stepped closer to her and put his hands on her hips, giving her a little shake, looking
down at her upturned face. “Let me buy these pants for you, hm?” he asked softly.

 

“What?” She stepped away. “No, absolutely not. You don’t need to be buying my clothes
for me.”

 

“Please, Daisy,” he begged. “It would make me so happy.”

 

She looked at him, trying to figure out whether or not he was kidding.

 

He looked completely serious.

When they got to the register, he pulled the pants out of the pile of clothes she was
buying and stepped to the next register to pay for them, grinning happily at her. She shook her head at him.

Cover Reveal #1 – One Baby Daddy

   

 

“What are you doing now that your team is out of the running for the Stanley Cup?”

 

Forget. I need to forget. I need an escape. Only one person isn’t falling for my reputation as the NHL’s Golden Boy; she captured my attention the minute she called me out for snooping through my best friend’s house. She didn’t want to hear my reason–she only wanted to playfully give me a hard time. Adalyn is bold, sassy–and the perfect escape. She’s everywhere. In town and in my dreams, and suddenly I need to spend every waking moment with her. And I do, making this summer the best off-season I’ve ever had. But in the midst of getting lost in Adalyn, what I don’t expect is to get her pregnant. And what I definitely don’t expect is having to fight for her affection.

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

 

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Liam Walsh is just a roommate.

 

Maybe if Charlie St. James repeats it enough, she’ll stop lusting after him. Not that it matters how she feels anyway, because Liam will always see her as one of the boys. Hell, he’s the one who gave her the nickname Charlie as a joke. Well, the joke’s on her. Now that she is confined to less than 1,000 square feet with him, she can’t stop thinking about how it would feel to get just a little bit closer.

 

Charlie St. James is off limits.

 

She’s been Liam Walsh’s best friend since grade school. He thought it wouldn’t be a big deal to let her crash with him when she needed a place to stay, but he was dead wrong. Knowing only a thin wall separates them when they sleep, that she’s naked in the shower while he lays in bed fantasizing about her, is unbearable. When their cozy two bedroom goes from friend zone to war zone, they’ll either burn up the sheets or go down in flames.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Liam and Charlie have been best friends for a long time. Now, he is feeling more for her than friendship. Is it smart to act on those feelings? He must decide before it is too late if he can be the man she needs.

Charlotte AKA “Charlie” has just realized she wants more from her best friend, Liam. All of a sudden the way she feels about him is just not enough. Every time she is in the same room it seems there are so many sparks flying, she is afraid she will combust.

This is such a sweet and yet very sexy story. I was engrossed in it pretty quick. Besides being my favorite trope, the characters are smart, sexy, and have great banter. They get right to the heart of things. I loved the pace and the fact it starts out this new series just right!

He reached across the car and took my hand. “I know I haven’t been around as much,” he said, “but after today, my schedule won’t be so busy.”

“I understand,” I said softly. And I did. “Football is your life. It’s your dream.”

He made a sound. “You’re just as important to me.”

I smiled. “I have to admit I won’t be upset when this game is over and all the girls around here stop wearing your number all over their bodies.”

His white teeth flashed. “Is someone jealous?”

I snorted.

His smile grew wider.

“Maybe a little,” I admitted.

He lunged forward and in seconds had me in his lap, my legs straddling him so we were face to face. He buried his hands in my tangled disaster of hair. I admit I hadn’t even brushed it when we got out of bed this morning.

“You’re my favorite girl,” he whispered.

“I better be your only girl.”

He smiled. “That too.”

Shutdown Player: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey (Game On in Seattle Book 10)Shutdown Player: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey by Jami Davenport
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #10, in the Game On In Seattle series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this great series in order.

Stephanie AKA “Steph” meets Jared while she is working. They meet again later, and the attraction spark starts to flame. If she can just keep her past behind her, maybe she can think of having a future.

Jared AKA “Hot Rod” is trying to recapture his life after a bitter divorce. Seeing Steph at every turn has him in knots. Will the past and the pain ruin what has begun for them?

This series just continues to please the senses. It has all kinds of hot, with both men and women who are strong – yet vulnerable. This story fits in well with the characters heating up every time they are in the room together. Lots of secrets, surprises, and plenty of humor mixed in, this is a great read.
