Vodka should come with a warning:

Mixing with Karaoke will make you do stupid shit, like sing that song you wrote when you were fourteen, about the boy who broke your heart.

At least he didn’t see it.

Oh wait. He did.

I should've just stayed home. The only reason I came was to stop Lily from doing something stupid, like crash her ex-boyfriend's wedding.

When I open my hotel room door to find Adam standing there, that sexy smirk tells me he’s hasn’t changed. He’s still the same arrogant asshole who made my childhood hell.

He insists on driving us home, and while he’s the last person I want to be
around, he and I both know it’s a bad idea for Lily to be anywhere near that wedding.

I’m on the road trip from hell with my heartbroken cousin, and the one guy I can’t stand.

What was I thinking?

New Release | Keeping Her Close by Casey Diam | #NEW #ContemporaryRomance



Title: Keeping Her Close
Author: Casey Diam
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 14 August 2018





Blurb



When a heart is broken, it withdraws, shielding itself from further pain, but also from further life.

Brandon Kuvat gave up on love ten years ago—the year he was set to
become a dad. A wealthy playboy pilot, he still sees plenty of action, but he’s not the man he once was. Or the man he wishes he could be. The first time he encounters Jordan, he knows immediately she is different. He also knows hurting her is inevitable. Still, he can’t stay away, even if it means he'll have to settle for a friendship—but only for as long as that can last.

Wounded by a disastrous relationship, Jordan Artesian has put
her whole focus on work, nurturing her dreams of owning her own fashion line. But though her creativity blooms, the rest of her is still frozen, that is,
until Brandon charms his way into her life. He's irritating, but
somehow...intriguing. She hates that she finds his charming and challenging ways attractive. He isn’t supposed to make her feel things she’s given up on feeling.

For these two, friendship will never be enough—not when she’s what he needs to heal, and he’s what she needs to feel again. But can they find their way down the path of friendship to truly love and trust one another, or will they only destroy each other’s hearts all over again?

Excerpt


He handed her a glass and clicked his to hers. “To happiness and beautiful people.”

“And official first dates,” she added.

When she finished her glass before him, he poured her another.

“Is there a drinking contest I don’t know about?” he asked.

“No. I need it. I just remembered where we’re going, and I need to relax.” She frowned as she remembered her dates with Todd. They were always awkward. She was always the outsider with his smart lawyer friends, and tonight would be the same with Brandon. She wouldn’t know anyone. This was Brandon’s lifestyle and friends, and she was just an accessory.

“You shouldn’t be nervous. You’re with me,” he soothed, taking her free hand in his. His touch warmed her body. “It’ll be fun. I promise.” He kissed the back of her hand, causing her lower abdomen to flutter at the softness of his lips.

No, don’t do that, small voice in her head squeaked. Tension spread out from his hand still connected with hers.

She swallowed champagne until a nice buzz settled over her. To letting go
and starting over, she mentally toasted. Taking a deep breath, she
relaxed into her seat and closed her eyes. “I feel it now. You need to get on my level.”

He chuckled. “Oh, really? And which level are you on?”

“Mmm, about level three and a half. Maybe four.”

He laughed.
“I’ll be there with you in a few.” He released her hand, picked up the bottle
of champagne, and started to chug it. But then he stopped. “On a second
thought, I shouldn’t.”
“Why not?”

“Because I can’t be tipsy and alone with you in that dress in here. I’m already too tempted as it is.”

Her deepest desire might be too much for her to handle…


When twenty-one-year-old Saylor Fielding spends a tiny
fortune from her new trust fund on something she’s always wanted, she’s not prepared for the consequences that follow.


Her father goes ballistic about her reckless spending and
when she refuses to tell him – because she really, really can’t tell him – how she spent the money, he sends her away for two weeks to live with his three favorite engineers, Finn, Reid and Jax in the middle of the desert. She is to clean their house, do their laundry and cook for them.


That something Saylor has always wanted… just happens to be
Finn, Reid and Jax. And they have no idea the highest bidder at the Troika
charity auction competing to spend a night with them is their strictly
hands-off boss’s daughter in disguise.


All Saylor wants to do is finish her two-week sentence and
escape unscathed with her secret intact, but they take one look at her and now she has to face their kind of consequences…


Publisher’s Note: This is a steamy, reverse harem love story.

Excerpt




“Come,” Reid said, and she followed him without hesitation. He led her to a narrow bench, definitely not wide enough to seat her whole backside. “Sit.” 

She lowered herself onto the seat and she had called it right, half her ass hung over the side of the bench. Finn and Jax stayed where they were, watching her. Reid moved behind her and she turned her head to follow him.  It was only then that she noticed the strange apparatus positioned behind the bench, something similar to a catheter on a pole. A feeling of trepidation rose in her belly. Her gaze flitted nervously to the three men. She didn't want to disappoint them and since she had never done anything like this in her life before, she had no idea how not to fail them.

“You're going to be amazing,” Jax said softly, detecting the shadow that visibly marred her features. She nodded and offered him a weak smile. From behind, Reid pulled on a pair of latex gloves. When he lifted and released the latex against his skin, she jumped at the sound and a surge of wetness spilled from her. Her nipples popped out. She didn't mistake the men’s soft husky groans at her body's demonstration.

“Ready?”
Reid asked. She nodded, not daring to turn around. She clenched her thighs and fisted her hands. And yet everything about those initial moments seemed to have aroused her in a way she didn't think she could be. “Relax, little swan,” he said. She tried and couldn't get her muscles to loosen up at all. “The coldness you're going to feel is just a little lube, all right?”

She closed her eyes and jerked when Reid touched her untouched hole. He prodded and poked and she knew she wasn't making it any easier for him to go deeper than the tip of his finger. “Don't fight me,” Reid said so softly she barely heard his words, but she clearly heard how she affected him. How gaining access into her tight little hole was turning him on.

 Her gaze opened on Finn and Jax and she licked her lip to see their cocks, tearing at the heavy fabric of their jeans. Reid applied generous amounts of gel to her. After a moment he said, “I'm going to insert the nozzle into your ass now, little swan.” She froze at the first contact of thin plastic edging at her. She wasn't ready for this. She started to panic. 

“You know why we're doing this, don't you, Saylor?” Jax asked. She didn't answer, she wanted them to tell her again why they were doing this to her. What the end result would be.

Blog Tour and Review | Big Mountain by Penny Wylder | #NEW #Erotic #SmallTown #Suspense #Review


Title: Big Mountain
Author: Penny Wylder
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: 13 August 2018

Our night of passion was unforgettable.

I'd have loved more time with her, but she was a city girl passing through my lonely mountain village, only here to take photos of our festival.
She had no reason to return. So when she shows up again months later, I'm stunned.

Turns out her job sent her back with some unfinished business. I'd love another taste, but she says she's done with me and plans to leave ASAP. 

I'm not about to argue...

Until I find out that she's pregnant from our one-night-stand.

And once I know that she's carrying my child inside of her?

I'm never going to let her go.

 Review

Big Mountain is a secret baby romance and a fairly quick paced read. 

Jenna meets Gil when she goes to a small town to cover the local festival for her job as a photographer. Gil is a local carpenter who is instantly attracted to the gorgeous woman walking the stalls. The two quickly hook up and after a night of explosive passion each go their own way and Jenna goes back home. However an unfortunate incident occurred on the night which leads to Jenna going back to speak to the local police. 

This was an erotic but suspenseful romance. To be fair the suspense was fairly light and I instantly guessed who the perpetrator was although there was a curve ball thrown in later to surprise me. 

I liked the interaction between Jenna and Gil and could easily identify the off the charts chemistry from the start. I loved both characters and how in a relatively short read that the relationship development was fully explored. 

If you love small town romances with some hot action, a secret baby and a touch of suspense thrown in then this is one I would recommend. Four stars.  



Excerpt

He’s finished heating up the place now, and he crosses to me until his huge frame blocks the doorway I’m standing in. This close, I can feel the heat, but not from the stoves. It comes off his body, radiating from him like the summer sun. I step closer, until we’re chest-to-chest, and I’m gazing up into those bright eyes of his, mesmerized, entranced.

“I can see what you mean,” I admit, my voice softer now than it was back at the bonfire when we fired flirty, suggestive comments back and forth at one another. “I like it here too.”

“Do you now?” His hands are on me again, but touching me lightly this time, teasing. He trails a fingertip up my arm, then back down, leaving a trail of tingles in his wake, the fire stoking inside me to an almost unbearable degree. I feel like another one of his wood stoves. He knows just how to coax the flames in me. “I haven’t even shown you proper Bailey hospitality yet.” From the smirk on his mouth, I can guess what he means.

Still, I ask anyway. “What exactly does that entail?”

“Well.” He bends closer, eyes trapping mine, until his mouth hovers just inches away from my lips. “First, it would involve escorting you to my bedroom. Then…” His gaze breaks away, drips down my neck to my shirt. 

“I’d have to take off all those clothes of yours.”

A shiver traces its way along my spine. “I see. And then?”

“Then, I’d want you spread-eagled across my bed.” He dips toward me, and I shut my eyes, lips parted in anticipation of a kiss. But he slides right past my mouth, presses his cheek to mine once more, his breath hot on my ear. “After which I’ll be tasting every…” He catches my lobe between his lips, swirls his tongue around my earring, then kisses that soft, tender spot right beneath my ear, where it meets my neck. A spot that always makes me swoon. My knees feel weak under me. “… Inch of you,” he murmurs. His lips kiss down my neck to my collarbone, to the edge just visible under my shirt.

I rock toward him, unable to help myself, my hands drifting up to grip his shoulders for balance. “Mm,” I manage to say, distracted by his lips, his tongue edging along my neck. “And after you’re… satisfied with tasting?” I catch my breath, because he stops kissing my neck then, and draws back and with one finger under my chin, lifts my face toward his.

“I doubt I’d ever be satisfied with you,” he murmurs, a grin on his mouth. “But once I’ve made you come enough times that you can hardly catch your breath?” His eyes light up, because I have to catch my breath again, this time in a breathy little gasp. “Well, then I’ll fuck you, Jenna.” His hands slide down from my waist, caressing my hips on their way to my ass, which he grabs with both hands, hard enough to lift me half an inch off the floor, and pressing my hips against his, where his stiff cock still digs into my belly, harder than a steel rod.

“All. Night. Long.”

#CoverReveal | Until We Break (Trust Duet #1) by Edyn Michaels | #TBR #ContemporaryRomance #Duet #EdynMichaels


Title: Until We Break
Series: Trust Duet #1
Author: Edyn Michaels
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 4 September 2018



Mari was fast tracking to forever with her boyfriend of two years, until a former friend turned skank sent her some incriminating evidence that included her body bouncing on his dick. 

All trust was lost in the male species, and she decided it was time to use men as they had been using women for years. The plan served her well for a while, with a lot of free drinks and evenings that ended up with her face down on a couch with a nameless guy pounding her from behind.

Her BFF, Kaylie, staged an intervention for her whorish ways… but then in the course of a week she met two men who challenged her heart and her lady parts in ways they’d never been tempted before. Suddenly she felt like a game piece, and she had to choose what team she was playing on.

#TeamJamison

Tall, dark and tattooed, Jamison loves one thing in life and that’s his Harley. He makes no promises other than a good time. There will be no promises of forever, and to hell with monogamy. But, if she spends a single night with him, she’ll be feeling it for at least three days.

#TeamDane

With a smile that could light up the darkest night, and dazzling blue eyes, Dane friend-zones her from the start. He’s been through his share of meaningless relationships, but the former star quarterback wants a chance at falling in love with his best friend, rather than chase the next piece of fine ass.

With an epic battle of heart vs. heat; whose team will she be on?

New Release | Rules of Friendship by CA Harms | #NEW #FriendsToLovers #ContemporaryRomance


Title: Rules of Friendship
Author: C.A. Harms
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 6 August 2018





As a guy, the number one rule to being best friends with a girl should be simple…

Never, and I do mean never, fall in love with her. 

Oh and you should never fantasize about her either.

Believe me, that situation can get messy really fast and leave you with nothing but one hell of an awkward mess on your hands—literally.

Reese and I have been through everything together; our bond is deep. But I am going down fast, and I fear there is no way to stop it. I spend most of my time hiding my body’s reaction to her because like I said: just friends.

But things are changing. We are changing. 

I no longer see her as just Reese, my best friend. When I look at her now, I see a gorgeous woman that takes my breath away. I see my future. But what if she doesn’t see me the same way? 

I can’t risk losing her… 

The fear of screwing everything up is excruciating. So that’s why I have chosen to stick to the rules. The Rules of Friendship that is. 

She was off limits. Plain and simple. 

But then in she walks wearing her tiny shorts and those tight tops. Come on, a guy can only have so much restraint before he caves…
