That expression I can read just fine. “You aren’t going anywhere, Angel.” I suck in a sharp breath, hearing his words in someone else’s voice. But I did. I’m… Read more »

RELEASE DAY GIVEAWAY: Before by Melissa Pearl

RELEASE DAY GIVEAWAY: Before by Melissa Pearl

Excerpt: The car horn sounded like a trumpet, making me laugh hysterically. Hugh was anything but subtle. Jamming my feet into my Converse shoes, I tie the laces in a hurry and rush for the door. “Where are you going?” My mother, one of the shortest people I know, tries to block my way. I gently nudge her aside as I zip up my hoody. “I’m going out,” I mumble. “No you’re not. It’s Friday night. You have youth group. Your father is expecting to see you there.” “Well he’s going to be disappointed…again. How many times do I have to tell you guys I’m not interested? I don’t want to sound snarky, but I can’t help it. I hate youth group. I hate church. I hate that my minister is my dad who is constantly harping on about it and forcing me to go to stuff that is as… Read more »

COVER REVEAL and EXCERPT: Trusting You by LP Dover

COVER REVEAL and EXCERPT: Trusting You by LP Dover

EXCERPT His lazy grin grew wider. “I wondered if I’d ever see you again,” he murmured in his low, sexy voice. I scoffed and tried to step back, but he moved forward, closing the space. Placing my hands on my hips, I said, “Yeah, I bet. Someone like you probably has a different woman every night. I’m pretty sure you don’t even remember my name.” What’s bad is that I remembered his. I didn’t want to remember it, but I did; it was Brett Walker and he was twenty-eight years old, just like me. Smirking, he narrowed his eyes. “I could say the same for you. You were the one who left me, remember? Imagine my surprise when I woke up and your side of the bed was cold. You didn’t even say good-bye … Melissa. I must say it was a first for me.” Amazon.com Widgets  About LP Dover… Read more »

SNEAK PEEK EXCERPT: Sia by Josh Grayson

SNEAK PEEK EXCERPT: Sia by Josh Grayson

EXCERPT I reach my locker and just start unlocking it when Kyle stops beside me. He’s dressed comfortably in faded jeans and a black t-shirt with a yellow Batman logo on it. I smile broadly. “Hey.” It’s hard to describe just how good I feel, seeing him there. Yet I don’t miss the stunned expressions on Amber and Stacy’s faces, or how they spin towards each other to whisper something. In Amber’s world, Kyle is a loser, so I’m sure their words aren’t pleasant. I turn my back to them. “Hey,” he replies. He keeps his eyes purposefully away from the other girls. So he knows, I think. What must that feel like, knowing people are looking down on you? Saying cruel things? He doesn’t deserve this. But he doesn’t appear to care. He leans casually against the locker beside me. “Just thought I’d tell you I saw Carol this… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Jump Zone: Cleo Falls by Wylie Snow

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Jump Zone: Cleo Falls by Wylie Snow

Taiga Forest I’d always presumed the moments before death would be fuzzy and warm. They’re not. Death is painful. And cold. Death is terrifying. For me, there are no sepia vignettes of my childhood, no sign of my mother’s smiling face to usher me into a blissful afterlife, open armed. There’s nothing to distract me from the fright that slams me every time my mouth fills, every time my head slips under. No matter how hard I kick or thrash, the current is merciless, dragging me downriver, closer to the edge, closer to the— I can’t even think the word. I claw for the surface, flailing desperately for something to grab onto. But there’s nothing. Not a rock, not a log, not even a stray root. Even if by some miracle I don’t drown, there is nothing to save me from the fall. Seventy feet, straight down. And the rocks… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: American Girl On Saturn by Nikki Godwin

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: American Girl On Saturn by Nikki Godwin

I push him back. “You cheated!” “Milo wins!” Noah shouts out. “I really thought you had it too, Chloe. I can’t believe you just crumbled like that.” “He cheated,” I repeat. Milo shakes his head in protest. Noah has the audacity to agree with him. And thanks to Emery’s lost spinner in the grass, the plastic is my only other witness. Noah saunters over to us like a rapper trying to pull off a classic swagger. “Good job, Milo,” he says. “You know how clumsy girls can be. I knew you’d take her down.” I peel myself off of the plastic, grab my flip flops, and head back toward the house. I’ve had enough exhilaration and angst for one afternoon. The video premiere was enough. Porno-Posed-Twister with Milo was too much. But I can’t escape Spaceships Around Saturn even if I try. Milo and Noah come up behind me like… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT:  Where My Heart Breaks by Ivy Sinclair

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Where My Heart Breaks by Ivy Sinclair

EXCERPT I had no idea how much time passed as I was absorbed deeper and deeper into Jackson and Camilla’s forbidden romance. The story was set in the 1920s. Jackson was a wealthy industrialist staying at the Willoughby for the summer with his wife, who had taken ill. The doctors had recommended that Jackson take her out of the city to recuperate. Camilla was the daughter of the Willoughby’s owner. The hot summer days wore on, and the forbidden attraction between Jackson and Camilla grew in intensity. I was entranced. Anyone with common sense would know that Jackson was a bastard. It shouldn’t have mattered that he married young to someone he barely knew. But that was how Walter Moolen drew the reader in to make Jackson likable and vulnerable beneath his gruff exterior. Camilla, young and inexperienced, didn’t stand a chance once Jackson set his sights on her. I… Read more »

KINDLE FIRE GIVEAWAY & EXCERPT: When Fangirls Lie by Marian Tee

WARNING **** VERY, VERY SMEXY!**** A loud pounding on the door made them jump in surprise.     “What the—” Donovan exclaimed.    “Are you fucking in there, H?”     Saffi squeaked in shock.      Knowing he only had seconds to spare, Alan hissed, “Remember your promise!”     “I promise. And you promise, too.”     Alan nodded. “I keep my word, Sapphire.”     Her eyes widened at the name he used. “Alan! Don’t call me—” She ended up shrieking instead when the door smashed open. Rather, Staffan had kicked it open. He came in, looking beautiful and furious in a three-piece suit. How was it possible for a human being to be so swooningly exquisite? He really was Mr. Rock Star Chic.     Staffan’s eyes found hers, the emotions swirling in it making her swallow.     Well, make that Mr. Angry Rock Star Chic.     “I can explain,” she said in… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Aberrant by Ruth Silver

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Aberrant by Ruth Silver

Excerpt from Aberrant by Ruth Silver     Joshua came into my room, ignoring all rules as he helped push the dresser further from the wall, knocking it to the floor allowing me more than enough room to grab the journal and go. I tossed it inside the pack and Joshua put the map inside before we stepped out of my bedroom. I glanced down the hall, not sure what I expected to see. To the right the dormitory had been hit, and a roar of smoke and fire filled the confined space. Jacqueline was gone. Hand-in-hand we ran in the opposite direction toward the staircase.     My eyes burned. Coughing, I refused to let go of his hand as we stepped outside. Drones weren’t the only things attacking Haven. Tanks rolled into town. A few soldiers jumped off, taking over the perimeter, guns drawn. I paused, gripping Joshua’s hand as… Read more »
