Release Blitz – Torrid Little Affair by Kendall Ryan

 

TLA AmazonThe best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

Review – The Bed Mate by Kendall Ryan

Review:

Today’s confession….the friends to lovers trope isn’t one of my favorites.  But, I love Kendall Ryan so I decided to give this latest installment of her Room Mate Series at try and I’m so happy I did.  Ms. Ryan works it like a catwalk model and I loved every second of this story!  Sam and Maggie are best friends and have been for years.  But quietly, Sam has always known that no woman could ever measure up to the standards of Maggie and he would never jeopardize his friendship in that way.  Maggie is fresh off a break-up and Sam swoops in to her rescue.  And so….it begins.  I adored Sam and Maggie!  Individually and as a couple, they are dynamite!  Sam is kind and generous and accepts all the many facets of Maggie’s personality.  He knows her better than anyone and there is something so sexy about a man who knows a woman this intimately without being intimate with her.  He pulls out all the stops, not only to make her feel better but to maneuver her a position in which she can accept him as a lover, not just a friend.  I was utterly charmed by him.  Maggie worships Sam but when several people point out how perfect they are together, Maggie allows her mind to entertain thoughts of another type of relationship with Sam.  It was so romantic.  These two have some pretty amazing chemistry and when you couple that with the way they can read each other so well….it results in some pretty erotic fireworks!!!  Whew!  I’m surprised my Kindle survived the onslaught of heat!  Throw in a romantic getaway, a douchebag ex,  and a few good-natured friends, and you have a delightfully sinful story brimming with romance and smokin’ hot sex.  I definitely enjoyed reading The Bed Mate and once again, I can’t wait to see what Ms. Ryan has up her sleeves for her readers next.  5 stars.

 

 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a new story in her Room Mate series…

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?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Every now and then, Sam would shoot me a sympathetic look, knowing that I had no idea what they were talking about, but in truth, their company was a welcome break. Between what the woman in the shop had said and the lady on the plane’s insinuation, my mind was going a mile a minute and I was beginning to look at Sam in a way I definitely shouldn’t be.

Okay, so, yeah, he was sexy. That was a no-brainer.

I shot him a furtive glance, taking in the corded muscles of his forearms and the lock of dark hair that constantly flopped onto his forehead. And sure, he was sweet and attentive. He looked after me and made sure I always had a fresh drink and that I wasn’t cold or hot. He held the door for me and pulled out my chair when we went to restaurants. Hell, he’d been looking forward to this trip for months and he’d sacrificed an entire day just to make sure I got here safe and didn’t spend my time sulking.

Still, that didn’t mean he had feelings for me. He hadn’t argued when I’d mentioned us being like brother and sister or anything.

No, this whole line of thinking was ludicrous. Sam was a good friend. That was all…wasn’t it?

After all, Trevor had loved me once and he never did any of that.

Admittedly, that wasn’t the best example, but it proved my point all the same. In Sam’s shoes, Trevor never would have missed the chance to hit the slopes with his friends. He hadn’t even skipped the business trip that fell on my twenty-fifth birthday years back.

But Sam was there, my brain supplied helpfully.

Again, not an indication that he had feelings for me. People were just different. Sam was one of the good ones. And if he liked me surely I’d have known by now. He’d have told me or…something.

“Is that your phone?” Sam turned to me and I blinked, only realizing that I’d been so encompassed in my own thoughts that I’d totally zoned out.

“What?” I asked, confused.

“Don’t you hear that vibrating noise? I think it’s your phone.”

I listened hard and then heard the low, gentle hum he was talking about.

“Yep, probably you-know-who again.” I sighed, but fished the phone from my tiny handbag all the same on the off chance it was a family member with an emergency.

It wasn’t Trevor, though. He had called—I had seven new missed messages from him since I’d left for the airport, but I also had three missed calls from my friend Deanna. I hadn’t spoken to her in more than two weeks because she’d been away on a long-awaited safari, but now more than ever I really needed to hear her voice.

Review – My Father’s Rival by Fiona Davenport

REVIEW:

Short, hot, and sexy!  These are the words I would use to describe the latest release by super author duo Fiona Davenport.  Our hero, Jared, it one seriously smokin’ bad man, in the very best of ways.  Dominant and dangerous, Jared is out for blood with a rival MC and what better way to gain leverage than kidnapping the MC president’s daughter?  Funny thing…she aided and abetted her own kidnapping (this is seriously hysterical).  Bridget is my kinda girl.  After unknowingly facilitating that kidnapping, Bridget quickly decides, she also doesn’t want to leave her abductors side. Stockholm syndrome this is NOT!  Nope, Bridget has been lusting after Jared from afar for quite some time and at the first opportunity, she reaches for what she wants.  The chemistry between Bridget and Jared is amazing and this book gets high marks for extreme eroticism combined with sweet love.  It’s pretty instant…so brace.  Once Jared discovers all he ever wanted lies with Bridget, all bets are off.  I really enjoyed Bridget’s bold banter and lively spirit and how she goes head to head with Jared at each given opportunity.   Jared’s dirty-talk and blatant desires fired my blood and made my pulse race.  This book moves at a brisk pace and can be read in under and hour but it was an hour in which I was engaged and entertained form beginning to end.   I adored every second of My Father’s Rival and I’m pretty sure you will too! 5 stars!

EXCERPT

I stalked to my hog and got on, slamming my foot down on the kick starter. Scout’s engine revved and I looked jerkily in his direction. Bridget was sitting on the back of his bike, her slim arms wrapped around Scout’s torso. Even though Scout already had an old lady, something inside me howled in protest at the sight of her clinging to him. To anyone but me. It didn’t seem to matter that she was too fucking young for me. Too sweet and innocent.

“Fuck,” I muttered before yelling to be heard over the noise from the bikes, “Bridget! Get over here.”

Scout’s head pivoted, and he smirked at me before helping her off the seat. I scowled darkly, my eyes threatening retribution if he said even one fucking word. Bridget hesitated when she caught sight of my expression. I held out my hand and beckoned her forward with my fingers, softening my look so she wouldn’t be afraid.

I handed her a helmet and fastened the straps, tucking her red hair out of her face. “Hop on, baby,” I growled. “We need to get the fuck outta here.”

She climbed on and wrapped her arms around me tightly. Her tits pressed flush against my back, and I could feel her heart racing. I rarely let any woman ride with me but when I had, it had never felt this good. She fit me like a glove. Shaking my head, I tried to dispel the thoughts invading my mind and took off like a bat outta hell.

We reached the Silver Saints compound a little less than an hour later. Once inside the main garage, I shut off my bike and helped Bridget to her feet. As she swung her leg over, she lost her balance and went tumbling into my chest.

Son of a bitch. Riding with her wrapped around me had made me hard as fuck but when she was pressed against my front, I thought my dick was gonna burst through my damn jeans. She looked up at me with wide, deep blue eyes, her pink lips slightly parted, and her skin flushed. I could too easily imagine how she would look after being thoroughly fucked and I shoved her away quickly, trying to get some control.

I hadn’t kidnapped her to make her my play-thing. I didn’t roll that way—she was simply leverage for the swap. I had no intention of corrupting Pierce’s innocent little princess, no matter how tempting the idea was. The last thing I needed was to jeopardize the plan by getting involved with her. Besides, I reminded myself, she’s too damn young for you. I was old enough to be her motherfucking father.

Review – Cuffed by K. Bromberg

 REVIEW:

I was completely FLOORED when I read this book!  My head is still spinning…first because it has sensitive subject matter in which I normally shy away from and secondly, it has an undertone that is darker than I usually prefer in my books.  However, the voice of Ms. Bromberg is so compelling and her storytelling is so dynamic, I was sucked in and I could not put Cuffed down!  Grant, our hero, is so amazing…I was just overwhelmed with how much this man loved Emmy.  Having been witness to the darkest days of Emmy’s life, Grant thought the little girl who was his best friend was gone form his life forever….until she returns to town and he vows to be a part of her life, no matter what it takes.  He is fierce in his need for Emmy, pulling out all stops to get  her to face him and their past while moving onto a future in which they live happily-ever-after.  He doesn’t count on Emmy being so stubborn and fierce.  Emmy, well, everything about her broke my heart and reshaped it…more than once.  She was strong and proud and just keeps moving forward, which is difficult given the past she has endured.  She is Grant’s equal in every way but it determined to hold a grudge against Grant for actions that changed her life for the best and the worse.  These two have so much passion it practically leaps off the page and saturates your reading device.  It’s that chemically combustive!  I about fell over with the raw sensuality of their passion and the eroticism put forth.  I still can’t catch my breath over a week later.  I see this cover and I swoon all over again.  Now, don’t be fooled…the path to happily-ever-after is not easy for Grant and Emmy. It is very emotional and intense and I can guarantee you that you will need a box of Kleenex and maybe a counselor on standby (ok…fine, not the counselor, but definitely a good hug after).  I simultaneously wanted to beat the crap out of both of them and wanted to cuddle them better.  This book evokes so many emotions I was literally spent at the end….and then I wanted to read it again!  We have the angst of their relationship coupled with the charming antics of Grants brothers and his beloved parents.  Their scenes were refreshing and added extra charm to this book….not to mention make you anxious to have his brother’s stories told.  We even have a sleezy-slimeball of a character who holds Emmy’s future in his hands and is a complete and utter A**hole in the process.  Emmy has some great friends she works with that liven up this book, not to mention her pistol of a best friend…all of who teach Emmy about family and love.  Overall, I couldn’t put Cuffed down…it was full of everything in a book I never knew I wanted and I’m excited to see what Ms. Bromberg has in store for the next book in this series!  Again, I will state that subject matter in this book features a storyline that may be difficult for some readers to embrace but if you can, I suggest you try this book as you venture into darker waters than you are used to.  It’s worth the fear.   5 stars. 

 

From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them. 

 “I hate you. I never want to see you again.” 

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again. 

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past. 

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.

What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?

*** 

 I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves. 

That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up. 

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story. 

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

By Callie Harper

Release Date: October 20, 2017 

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

Now that I’ve taken her, I’m never letting her go. 

Taking Olivia hadn’t been my plan. I’d been prepping my cabin in the woods for my own getaway.

I’m an ex-SEAL, but my instincts are still strong. One glimpse of her innocent, terrified eyes and I know I need to save her. I’d been working with the bad buys, but all it takes is one look at Olivia and I’m back playing the hero, rescuing the damsel in distress.

Now we’re in my remote cabin, hidden away from the world. My little curvy virgin is looking up at me with a mix of innocence, fear, and desire.

The need to possess is burning through my veins. She thinks she needs to escape.

She’s not going to escape.

She’s going to be mine.

Release Tour – Make Me Yours by Rebecca Brooks

Title: Make Me Yours
Series: Men of Gold Mountain
Author: Rebecca Brooks
Genre: Sexy Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Release Date: October 9, 2017 

 

“Intensely sexy and packs an emotional punch!” – #1 New York Times bestselling author Lauren Blakely on Make Me Beg

Claire Collins has always been good—except when it comes to bad boys. Or one bad boy in particular: a tattooed musician as skilled with her body as he is with his guitar. But he wasn’t ready to be a father, so she left him to raise their daughter on her own. Only fate had other plans, and suddenly, Ryan is back in her life, disrupting everything. This time, though, she’s determined not to lose her heart…even if she still craves his touch.

Ryan Thomas never expects to see Claire again—especially not in a small mountain town in Washington on the last show of his comeback tour. But when the lights come on, there she is, more beautiful than ever. One incredible night with her won’t be enough… But he’ll have to prove he’s not the man he used to be, if he wants to keep her—and his family—for good.
Claire was grateful when the waitress came over and they had to pull away. They hadn’t even looked at the menu yet. Maybe that would buy her some time, stop her head from spinning. She needed a chance to collect herself before she lost her mind. Ryan wasn’t just a sexy guy who looked at her the way he always had, like she was the only woman in the world and he’d been waiting his whole life to find her. He was the man who’d broken her heart, and she’d better not forget it.

 

But as soon as she opened the dessert menu, it was harder to stay composed. First on the list was The Chocolate Orgasm, a sinful-sounding molten cake topped with homemade whipped cream. Right now, flushed and heated, she didn’t just want the chocolate. She wanted the orgasm, too. 

 

To go, please, since sharing either of those with the man next to her was obviously a very, very bad idea.

 

Ryan must have known exactly what she was thinking, because he leaned even closer than they’d been before the waitress came. “I know what you want,” he said devilishly.

 

“Cheesecake?” Her voice practically squeaked.

 

“Nope.”

 

“Tiramisu?” 

 

“I’ve always thought of that as such a tease. Sure, it’s got chocolate. But barely. Why waste time with all that foreplay?”

 

Oh, please. Claire leveled her head at him. “You don’t believe in foreplay?”

 

He reached over and tucked a stray strand of hair behind her ear. She could guess it was all over the place, no matter how hard Abbi had tried to tame it. She never should have given Ryan a chance to talk to her more. She never should have come. Now here they were, so close to each other as though no time at all had passed.

 

“On the contrary,” he said, and then his voice dropped. “But that doesn’t mean every taste shouldn’t be the real deal.”  

 

His eyes locked with hers, the gray darkened to the deep blue of a midnight ocean in the corner where they sat. Was he always like this, so impossible to resist?

 

She looked away, scanning the rest of the menu frantically, trying to come up with something other than what she obviously wanted. What he knew she wanted. What under any other circumstances, with any other person, she might even have let herself have.  

 

“I think I’ll get the carrot cake,” she said lamely. 

 

That grin again. His lips moved only a little, but his eyes shifted, the gray lightening. A flicker. A tease. 

 

“Now why are you so hell-bent on denying yourself? The Claire I knew was fed up with being good.”
