GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT from Always Yours, Baby

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT from Always Yours, Baby

Excerpt: She beamed, but it didn’t go all the way to her eyes like it normally would. There were lingering fingers of shadow along the edges that prickled his attention. “What?” “Does it feel different?” she asked. He hooked her hair with a finger and dragged them back behind her ear. “Does what feel different?” “Us,” she whispered. “I feel like it should feel different, but I feel the same.” He hummed quietly, knowing full well what she meant. “How do you want to feel?” “Like this,” she said immediately, eyes growing urgent. “I love the way I feel when I’m with you. I don’t ever want that to change. But I have been so scared for so long that I just … I wasn’t expecting to feel exactly how I always felt.” He let his fingers ghost along the elegant curve of her brow, down the lines of her… Read more »

TRUST by Ella Frank – Review

TRUST by Ella Frank – Review

First and foremost, I’m so sad that this story has come to an end. Logan and Tate are two of my favorite characters ever. EVER. I have read hundreds of books, probably thousands of books, in a variety of genres, and these two men are among the few characters who will live with me forever. The end of their journey was rough. As they say, THE FEELS. Ella took a strong plot and spun it in a Tate and Logan web that was magical because it was the special story of these two characters and their love for one another. In the end, this is the culmination of a beautiful love story – a beautiful, sexy, hot as hell love story, but a truly beautiful love story. If you’re looking for a Happily Ever After, you’ve found one. The road is bumpy, and the destination isn’t traditional, but the trip… Read more »

TOUR Review: Under the Influence by L.B. Simmons

TOUR Review: Under the Influence by L.B. Simmons

Kristi’s Review: I’ve read this author before, and this book is a different read from her…and while it’s not my favorite, I highly enjoyed it. I really liked getting to know these two characters and the paths their lives took them on. Years ago, Dalton and Spencer meet and the connection is instant, but friendship is all that they allow themselves to have. Dalton is the older, bad-boy with the heart of gold who pines for Spencer, protecting her for afar. He allows just so much connection in the form of friendship, but Spencer is drawn to him, there’s chemistry and she finds herself totally captivated by him. I am an angst whore and I wanted more build up, more angst, more pining. I do love the secondary characters, especially Cassie who helps Spencer make Dalton confront his emotions and true feelings. Once these two admit their feelings, their connection… Read more »

GIVEAWAY & Happy Release Day— All Played Out by Cora Carmack

GIVEAWAY & Happy Release Day— All Played Out by Cora Carmack

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT I groan, and flip the page in my spiral so I won’t have to look at the words anymore. Starting small with the alcohol had been a wise decision. Perhaps I should do the same with other big items on my list. But how did one get smaller than sex and hooking up? I couldn’t just put “kiss.” I’d done that before, and a few more kisses weren’t going to make any difference in my confidence when it came to sex. Really, it’s the unknown that bothers me. Not just on this list, but in everything. So maybe that’s what I need to get used to. I skip to the bottom of my list and add … 17. Kiss a stranger I tap my pen against the page, surveying the words, and decide that kissing a stranger is a good stepping-stone. Then a voice comes from over my… Read more »

$25 GC GIVEAWAY and Happy Release Day…Under the Spotlight by Angie Stanton

$25 GC GIVEAWAY and Happy Release Day…Under the Spotlight by Angie Stanton

Happy RELEASE Day to Angie Stanton… I can’t wait to read this! Looks amazing! Here’s an exclusive excerpt… and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the bottom! Happy reading! Chapter 1 Garrett’s head pounded, and not from the hangover that would greet him with the sunrise, but from being slammed against the wall. Or maybe it was from the few punches that came later when he crashed to the floor of Ye Ole Boston Brew Pub and knocked his head on the beer-stained tile. He rubbed his unshaven face, and dried blood flaked into his hand. Great. He needed a shower and an aspirin, but the Boston city jail offered neither. Where the hell was Peter? It had been over an hour. The sharp edge of the narrow bench he lay on cut into his back, making his already battered body even more sore. He only hoped the other… Read more »

Tour Review: The Gentleman Mentor by Kendall Ryan

Tour Review: The Gentleman Mentor by Kendall Ryan

Kristi’s Review: I really enjoyed this story. It’s grasped my attention from page one. Under my direction and guidance, women learn seduction techniques, how to achieve climax with and without a partner, explore physical gratification, and more… Ahem… where do I sign up? This is a story about Brielle, a shy, beautiful woman wanting to seduce her best friend, but doesn’t know where to begin. She finds an ad for a Gentleman Mentor, who will, ahem, teach you all you need to know in the bedroom…and how to get what you want. I enjoyed the banter between “Dom” and Brielle right from the get-go. The email exchanges were one of my favorite things in the book and I only wish there was more. Brielle thoughts and questions are on every woman’s mind…or at least crossed every woman’s mind at one point. Am I flirting correctly? How do I get a… Read more »

Giveaway and Happy Release Day for ASA by Jay Crownover!

Giveaway and Happy Release Day for ASA by Jay Crownover!

Release Day EXCERPT: I pulled the Nova to a stop in front of a duplex that had clearly seen better days. It wasn’t a rusted-out trailer in Kentucky, but it might as well have been. I turned off the ignition and sat back in the seat so I could turn to look at Ayden. She was watching me carefully and I could see how frustrated she was with the entire conversation in the way her shoulders were tensed up and the way her hands had curled into tight balls on her lap. It was the way she used to look whenever I got into trouble and she had to do something desperate and drastic to get me out of it. I reached out a hand and put it on top of her fists. “I died in that hospital, Ayd. There were no angels playing harps. There was no redemption and… Read more »

Kin Series by Jenn Foor

Six Books plus ONE BONUS novella! One LOW Price… check out these excerpts…  Repair Me (Book 1)  Sky’s POV “Do you mind?” “I’ve seen a naked chick before. It ain’t like you’re hidin’ yourself.” He didn’t take his eyes off of me. “Please get out?” I was beet red, waiting for him to leave, looking for something to cover up my nakedness. “I really need to get a shower.” He leaned over and turned on the water. “It is my place, you know.” I gathered my things, while still wrapped in the towel and started to run out of the bathroom, until I caught a glimpse of him taking off his pants. Once I saw his perfectly sculpted bare ass, I just froze. He grabbed the shower curtain and took a step in, then looked back at me. “Now we’re even, I reckon.” With a quick smile he disappeared behind… Read more »

You?” A wicked smirk spread across her… Read more »
