BLURB
What happens when the boy you've wanted your whole life finally wants you back?
I'm used to taking what I want, being the best at what I do. During the day, I make big bucks as New York's premiere consultant. At night, I can get any girl I lay my eyes on. I thought this life was what I wanted: working hard and playing harder--with penthouse apartments, luxury cars and bottle service every weekend. After six years in the city, I know I've been living like a monster for too long. I need to get my act together. I need to find something real. I need to come home.
LA means family and a fresh start. My parents and my friends who are close enough to be siblings.
And Melina.
Melina is nerdy smart, with a challenging sense of humor and legs for miles. It's so hard to describe her...enigmatically beautiful. I’m sure there’s a word for it in French. But I know there's a naughty girl hiding behind that shy smile that I'm dying to drag out.
There was always something between us. I never forgot her laugh, never could get her off my mind. Nobody ever seemed to notice how my body would react when I was near Melina, how much more focused I became—maybe not even Melina herself. But this time it’s different.
The more time we spend together, the more I wonder if there was something there all along. After so long in the fast lane, I don't know if I can handle settling down. But seeing Melina's passion, I'm tempted beyond belief.
I have to admit it: temptation is hard to resist.



EXCERPT
I go dizzy, feeling so faint I need to close my eyes for a minute before I can do anything but bask. Wyatt strokes my hair slowly, the rough-but-cool touch of his hands bringing me back to life, and when I open my eyes I see him lying there beside me.
Suddenly the haze clears and I feel my stomach sink like a stone. The full magnitude of what just happened forming like a beast on the horizon.
“Oh god…I can’t believe we just…” I mumble.
“Yeah…” Wyatt replies with a lazy grin. “We did.”
The anxiety comes fast, flooding into that empty space left by orgasm.
Wyatt. My childhood crush. A friend I share with our families, our entire group. My new, albeit temporary, boss. As amazing as it felt in the moment, the myriad ways in which this was a horrible idea come out from wherever they were hiding an hour ago.

How could I be so reckless?
And how the hell are we going to keep this a secret?

Review Blitz: Love Online by Penelope Ward

fullsizeoutput_68

A Standalone Contemporary Romance Novel
By: NY Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author, Penelope Ward

LOVE ONLINE LIVE NOW

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.

Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary.

Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.

From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.

She was an addiction.

At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.

Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman.

But I couldn’t really have her.

I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.

So I took a chance.

And that was when our love story really began.

Love Online is a sweet, heartwarming story about two very different individuals from very different worlds, whose lives collide online. 

Ryan and Eden have very important responsibilities. They are defined by their responsibilities. Their responsibilities puts their lives into prospective. It also sets limitations. Its the limitations that they must overcome in order find true love.

I enjoyed the story. There are some very good lessons learned and heartfelt sentiments that make this a gratifying read. 4 Stars!

LJSDirtyHeadlinesBookCover6x9_BW_324.jpg

CĂ©lian Laurent.
Manhattan royalty.

I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory—namely, his wallet.
Now he’s staring me down like I’m the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I’m supposed to take it.
But the thing about being Judith “Jude” Humphry is I have nothing to lose.
Brooklyn girl.

When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals.
He knows it.
So do I.
Every day in the newsroom is a battle.
Every night in his bed, war.
But it’s my heart at stake, and I fear I’ll be raising the white flag.

About UNZIPPED (Coming 10/30/2018):

Picture this - I'm ready to win back the love of my life, and I'm going big this time. We're talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I'm good and ready this time around. After all, if you're going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops.

There's only one little problem.

My college girlfriend isn't the one who shows up when I play my "I'll do anything to win you back" tune.

The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn't live here anymore. But she'll help me win her back. Anything for romance, anything for a guy so willing to go big for love. And that's what I want at first. Until I get to know my new "romance coach" and discover she's funny, clever, and keeps me on my toes. And boy, do I ever need that.

Now I don't want to win anyone else's heart. I want the woman who's been helping me all along.

Trouble is - she thinks I'm in love with someone else, and when we take off on a road trip, everything I think I know about women is about to be unzipped and turned inside out.

Book Review: The Doctor by Nikki Sloane

40702672

For years, he was a part of my life. I watched him rush to the hospital countless times, his beautiful surgeon hands racing to save lives.

After all this time, I can’t escape the truth.

I want Dr. Lowe.

Lust chokes each moment we’re together. He promises to fulfill my fantasies—every dirty, naughty desire we can dream up.

Only, I can’t have him.

He’s confident. Experienced. Seductive.

And he’s my ex-boyfriend’s father.
 









The Doctor is a taboo romance all about the physical connection.  There is plenty physical connection to keep you warm on a cool night. 

Cassidy had just broken up with her boyfriend because of his lack of interest in their relationship. Only to end up in his father's arms.

Dr. Greg Lowe is a very busy surgeon. He's been working on his relationship with his son, Preston, after many years as an absent father. He's also been lusting after Preston's girlfriend from afar. Now that she's dumped him, it's Greg turn at love.

I enjoyed the The Doctor but it's centered more around the physical relationship then their connection. The story is only told in Cassidy's POV.  It may have helped if Greg chimed in with his thoughts on their relationship. I'm not sure if the relationship will survive the age difference.  Otherwise the story is entertaining and steamy. 3 Stars 

COVER REVEAL: THE CHEF by XAVIER NEAL

Wyatt
My entire existence begins and ends with food.
It gives me purpose.
It gives me peace.
It gives me pleasure.
Or it did before my best friend's little sister tempted me into taking a taste of the forbidden.
Spoiled me with her flavors.
Slaved my senses.
Now, the only thing I love more than my career as the "Charming Chef" is the one woman I know I'm not supposed to want.
Julez
After being ripped from everything I knew and everyone I loved, I realized just how truly short life can be.
How people don't take enough risks.
How people don't treat life like an adventure.
How people hide who they are.
While I've learned to embrace what most people fear, I've also taught myself the art of keeping others at a safe distance.
Yet, one secret moment with my brother's best friend, and all I want is for him to come closer.
To touch me.
To take me.
To love me...
I know the danger that comes with getting attached to someone, but I'd rather die happy than live forever without him.

Release Day: BILLIONAIRE UNCHALLENGED: CARTER by J.S. Scott



What happens when you're instantly drawn and inexplicably attracted to a man you haven't really met?

Me? Well, I left a party like my butt was on fire when it happened to me. Arrogant, wealthy and physically perfect men were nothing but trouble, even if I was mesmerized by a man with all of those attributes.

Unfortunately, we met again--in person this time-- when I literally collided with Carter Lawson in the flesh several days later, and discovered he was a man I just couldn't stay away from, no matter how much I tried. He felt the same attraction, and was determined to make it impossible for me not to see him.

My body craved him, and as I got to know the real man behind the jaded billionaire, womanizer facade, I was surprised to discover that I actually liked him.

He's the quintessential alpha male that I normally hate, but there's something I see in him that nobody else does, a pain I recognize in his glacier-like eyes--because I'm just like him. Both of us are frauds

I want to crack him like an egg, and see what's inside, but there's no way I want him to do the same thing to me.

On the surface, I'm a successful supermodel with a great career.

Inside, I'm someone else, a woman that nobody sees--until Carter slowly breaks through my defensive walls as well as he satisfies my body, starting to open wounds that have never really healed.

But there's only so much I can let Carter see. Revealing everything could ruin my entire life and the career I'd worked so hard to build.

So why was it so hard to lie to Carter like I'd been doing with everyone else my entire life?
