Friends to Lovers Books!

Friends to Lovers Books!

OK, themes in New Adult books these days? I’ve done them all. Vampires and Werewolves.-check. Step-brothers/sisters.-check. Bad boy with the heart of gold.-check. The jock and good girl.-check. Teacher/student.-check. Lately I’ve enjoyed the friends to lovers books. My top read so far this summer that is friends to lovers, With a Twist by Staci Hart. We all have those “go-to” book friends. Well, one of my “go-to” friends PMed me a few weeks ago and said, check out this book. It’s sweet, and steamy, and I think you’d like it. I devoured it. This is my favorite kind of book. One that is sweet and just takes you away into another world. I completely fell in love with these characters. Completely. ALL of them. This circle of friends are series gold. I want to read each and every one of their stories. (And because I’m a stalker, I totally checked… Read more »

I’m Sorry and YOU have to READ this…Verite by Rachel Blaufeld

I’m Sorry and YOU have to READ this…Verite by Rachel Blaufeld

OK, let’s get this out there now. I’ve been a sucky blogger. I’ve been even a bigger ass of a reader. My summer has slipped away from me and I have been locked away in camp hell. Yep, camp. It’s occupied all my time. I have barely read a thing this summer. And I miss it. I miss talking to my friends online about books. I’m the one usually recommending… and now I’m PMing all my book whores to ask what to read. This summer has been a busy one for me, professionally and personally. And while I sit and think about school starting in a handful of weeks, preparing my fall curriculum while dealing with over 400 campers and 100 staff members, I take a few deep breathes and turn to a book–I mean, I need an escape, right? Well camp is almost over and I called out today… Read more »

$100 GIVEAWAY: Wasted Lust by JA Huss

$100 GIVEAWAY: Wasted Lust by JA Huss

EXCERPT SASHA “I still feel dizzy.” “Come here,” he says, pulling me into his lap and repositioning me so my head is cradled in the crook of his arm. “Put your feet up on the seat and just rest. It’s a good hour drive to where we’re going.” I could resist. He’s not entirely trustworthy. And he’s a stalker. That’s pretty creepy. I wonder how deep that obsession goes. I wonder if it’s safe to even be in this car with him. But his embrace feels too good to make him stop. My dress was not made for being cradled in a man’s arms. Or maybe it was? Because the slits up each side bare my thighs, and the heat of his hand on my skin stirs up the longing I’ve been pushing away for years, making me shut my eyes. His fingers stroke me gently, back and forth across… Read more »

Excerpt Reveal from Tessa Bailey’s upcoming new book: Up in Smoke

Excerpt Reveal from Tessa Bailey’s upcoming new book: Up in Smoke

Excerpt Connor broke away, allowing them both to suck in oxygen. “Stay. I’m sorry. Stay.” He bent his knees to bring them eye to eye. His spoke of torture, but he was trying to hide it. “Look at me. I can handle this. I want you here. Don’t leave.” “I don’t know if I can handle it,” she whispered. His heavy breaths ceased. “What do you mean?” She drew out a lighter from her back pocket and ignited the flame. It cleared her head a little, allowing her to search for the right words. Words that wouldn’t sound crazy. “I like touching you. It makes me feel really…good. And there isn’t a whole lot that makes me feel good, you know?” Her throat closed up. “I wish you could touch me, too. I don’t think I can stay here knowing I’m hurting you by making myself feel good…and I don’t… Read more »

The Song of David by Amy Harmon Excerpt and Teasers

The Song of David by Amy Harmon Excerpt and Teasers

Excerpt  Millie opened the door to greet me, a smile on her lips, my name on her tongue, but I didn’t wait for her to release it. I wanted her to keep it, savor it, and never let it go. I needed my name to stay inside her so that I wouldn’t float away like a word that’s already been spoken. So I pressed my lips to hers and swung her up in my arms like a man in a movie, and my name became a cry that only I heard. I felt slightly crazed, and my kiss was frantic as I barreled up the stairs with Millie in my arms. My legs didn’t shake and my mind was clear, as if in its health my body was rebelling too. I wanted to roar and hit my chest. I wanted to shake my fists at the heavens, but more than… Read more »

Release Day Blitz for Relinquish by M.N. Forgy

Release Day Blitz for Relinquish by M.N. Forgy

Review to come… during Blog Tour! Really liked this one. Excerpt “What do you think you’re doing?” I question, my words muffled from arousal. He doesn’t respond, just caresses his lips along the sensitive skin of my neck seductively, causing my head to loll to the side. A rush of desire races through my chest, and my breathing picks up. “We can’t, remember? You’re my pimp, and I’m you’re escort. Rules,” I whimper, reminding him of his words from last night. He growls, the sound of his teeth grating. “Don’t ever call me that,” he rasps into my ear. The heat of his breath causes me to moan. He turns me around and picks me up, his fingers digging into my dress-cladded thighs. “What if you’re not my escort right now? No rules,” he breathes heavily, placing me down on his desk. “Like, pretending?” I question, digging my heels into… Read more »

$10 GIVEAWAY: James and Harper’s HEA Update

$10 GIVEAWAY: James and Harper’s HEA Update

BE SURE TO ENTER yesterday’s After The HEA Giveaway about Spencer & Veronica! WANT TO VIEW the James & Harper Pinterest Board? CLICK HERE. James came onto the scene immediately after Spencer’s Guns book released. The first Dirty, Dark, and Deadly story, COME,  was written especially for The BEND Anthology which I participated in with the other members of The Erotica Consortium on Facebook. Each story in the book was original and steamy, and we were so excited to release this. We had a ton of pre-orders and we were crossing our fingers that we’d make NYT with this book. And then Amazon BANNED us. Apparently they couldn’t handle the hotness. 😉 God, I laugh now, but we were so bummed! However, it all worked out in the end. We sold a lot of books – about 20,000 if I remember correctly, and even though the book was only officially… Read more »
