Excerpt

Copyright S.E. Rose 2020

“I’m sorry,” I whisper, and her eyes meet mine.

“W-What? Why?” Her eyes flash with more confusion.

I reach out and caress her face with my gloved hand, wishing I could feel her skin beneath mine. “I’m sorry for hurting you, Superstar.”

Her eyes glance back down at her lap. “It was a long time ago, Ty.”

I push under her chin, and she gazes at me again. “I’m sorry. I was young and stupid. I thought I was protecting you.”

She pulls back. “Protecting me from what?”

I sigh. “From me, from having to have a boyfriend that was never here, that was always busy.”

“But all I wanted was you,” she states bitterly.

“And I wasn’t here for you. No one could’ve had me. I was too… too busy and wrapped up in my Olympic dreams.”

She turns and zips up her bag. “I would have waited,” she murmurs as she stands up to leave.

I jump up and block her path. “I know you would have. But I couldn’t ask you to do that. You have dreams, too.”

“But you never gave me the choice to decide for myself,” she says and jams a finger at my chest. “You decided for both of us.”

“I did. And I can’t take it back, but if I could, I would,” I reply as I grab her head in my hands and kiss her.

She doesn’t move as I press my lips to hers. They warm under mine, and after a second she sighs, allowing my tongue free reign of her mouth. I taste her for the first time in way too long. And she tastes just as sweet as I remembered.

She drops her guitar case in the snow, letting her arms wrap around my middle as my hands hold her face. I don’t feel anything except her, not the snow, the cold, the wind, nothing but Brittany. Our warm breaths mingle in the cool air, surrounding us in our own personal cloud. I groan as I deepen our kiss.

She pulls back suddenly. Her hand flying to her lips.

“I’m sorry. I… shit, I’m sorry.” She has a look of anguish on her face.

“Brit, I kissed you. There’s nothing to be sorry about. When are we going to stop dancing around this thing,” I motion between us, “that’s clearly still between us?”

She shakes her head. “No. There’s nothing between us. That’s over. It ended when you walked out of my life.” I watch as a single tear falls on her cheek, and it might as well be a knife plunging into my heart.

I reach out to pull her back to me, but she jumps away.

“No. We can’t do this. I can’t do this. Not again.”

And it hits me. She’s protecting herself. I hurt her so badly that she reacts to me like a hand touching a hot pan. I can’t blame her.

“Brit, I won’t hurt you. I never met to hurt you.”

“I know,” she answers as another tear falls on her cheek. “But you did.”

ANTOINETTE

Axel Fontaine has a giant…

At least that’s what everyone says. Unfortunately, it’s true.

All. Of. It.

He’s dangerous, scary, and addictive. Without a doubt, the last person I should fall for is the VP of the Disciples MC.

I’m out of my league.

He’s a six-foot-four, blue-eyed biker god.

I’m an ex-ballerina turned stripper who should run away.

But how do you escape the one man who ignites your body and consumes your very soul?

Axel doesn’t do relationships. But I’m betting on ME to change his mind.

AXEL

I don’t do relationships. I don’t do drama, and I definitely don’t do love.

I’m not Prince Charming. I’m the VP of the Disciples and the club is my family. 

The last thing I need is a violet-eyed enchantress who smells like candy and has some sort of voodoo chemistry that’s messing with my mind.

She needs to go. 

She’s a distraction…a weakness I can’t have. 

Men like me fall in lust, not love. 

So, why is she still here?

Blog Tour with Review: Noble Prince by Devney Perry

Blog Tour with Review: Noble Prince by Devney Perry

Noble Prince by Devney Perry is now live!

The night Luke Rosen met Scarlett Marks was the only time he’s regretted becoming chief of police. One horrific night of blood and death, and now she’s living under his roof–all because he swore an oath to serve and protect.
Scarlett is stubborn and infuriating. She has no respect for the order in his structured life, and she never does anything she’s told. Worse, she doesn’t seem to care that the information she has on a motorcycle gang means she might end up dead. But her unwavering strength, her courage and tenacity and beauty, makes it impossible for him to abandon her.
If Luke is going to keep her safe, he’ll have to make the hardest decision of his life. He can either honor his values as a cop, knowing Scarlett is unlikely to survive . . . or he can break all the rules and protect the woman who’s invaded his home and his heart.

MY REVIEW

“I wasn’t just a cop, but a man falling in love who wasn’t ready to give Scarlett up.”

“We lived in a gray world and you’ve got to pick a shade closest to white. So do what your heart tells you.”

Noble Prince is the fourth book in the Tin Gypsy Series and it picks up right where Stone Princess left off. This is Scarlett and Luke’s story and it promises to deliver a story of strength, redemption, and an unforgettable romance.

When we first meet up with Scarlett, she finds herself in Luke’s protective custody. Scarlett is stubborn and doesn’t realize the severity of what’s at stake. But, if Luke is going to be able to keep her safe, he’ll have to bend the rules he’s sworn to protect. Will Luke be able to keep his honor and still keep Scarlett safe? There’s only one way to find out…

Noble Prince is a fantastic read from beginning to end. Scarlett’s story sucks you in from the very beginning and leaves no stone unturned. Scarlett’s life has been anything but easy. She’s endured hardships since she was a little girl and is much tougher than people give her credit for. She has a huge heart and while she doesn’t always make the smartest choices, she is one of the strongest women and will do whatever it takes to set the record straight.

And then we’ve got Luke, sweet swoon-worthy, Luke. He takes his work very seriously and likes to have order in his life. Having Scarlett in his life turned his world upside down in the best possible way. She invaded every part of his life and had him wanting things he never thought possible.

Together these two were a scorching inferno. Their chemsitry was believable and off the charts. Scarlett and Luke were real and had their own faults, yet you couldn’t help but root their story.

Noble Prince is the fourth book in the Tin Gypsy Series and is a terrific addition to this series. The characters are real, and easy to connect with. Noble Prince is filled with mystery, suspense, and action that will keep you on your toes. And of course, we can’t forget the romance. The romance will leave you swooning. Luke and Scarlett’s story promises to sweep you off your feet and leave you with a huge smile on your face. I enjoyed every moment of this story and look forward to seeing where this series is going to go next!

Excerpt

“If you’re not going to get out of the way, I’ll just go around.” I spun on my shoes, whirling the opposite direction, but when I went to take a step and carry my basket away, I suddenly found its weight missing from my arm. He’d stolen it from me before I’d had the chance to clutch it tight.

Then the world was spinning. The floors, the ceiling, everything flipped topsy-turvy.

I’d fainted.

No, that wasn’t right.

I was being carried. Hauled. That had been Luke’s threat and damn it, I’d underestimated him. The chief had made good on his word.

His shoulder dug into my belly as he walked. I lifted my face, pushing the hair out of my eyes. My basket of food sat exactly where I’d been standing. My chicken and rolls and cookies and chocolate milk. The items grew smaller with every one of Luke’s strides.

“Put me down.”

He kept walking.

“Put me down!” I shouted.

Still, he kept walking.

I lifted a hand and raised it above my head. My hair kept falling in front of my face, obscuring my vision, but that didn’t stop me from using every ounce of strength I had left. I brought my fist down on Luke’s lower back. Except my aim was shit so I didn’t hit his back. No, my fist bounced off his firm, perfect ass.

Luke didn’t so much as break his stride. “I promised Presley I’d keep you safe.”

And without another word, without stopping, he carried me in a fireman’s hold out of the grocery store and into the snow.

I was going back to the daisies, whether I wanted to or not.

Hello, Scarlett. I’m rock bottom.

Blog Tour: Wild Child by Audrey Carlan

Blog Tour: Wild Child by Audrey Carlan

Wild Child, an all-new must-read romance that with off the walls chemistry and heart from #1 New York Times bestselling author Audrey Carlan is available now!

Twice my life changed in a single day.

The first was when I lost my parents. Hand in hand I walked with my big sister up the steps of Kerrighan House, a foster home for girls. We were lucky to be met with open arms and a house filled with children just like us. Children who’d lost everything. From that day forward, we were raised as one big family. Our bonds of sisterhood were strengthened through shared experience, pain, sacrifice, and love. Sisters not by blood, but by choice.

Soul sisters.

The second day my life changed was on the worst day of my adult life. My boyfriend broke up with me via text. My sleazy boss hit on me, forcing me to quit a job I desperately needed. And the cherry on top, was getting pulled over by an FBI Agent. Little did I know, he’d also save my life that night.

From the moment we met, Agent Fontaine wouldn’t dare let me out of his sight. And between his alpha ways, kind brown eyes, and heroism, I was lost to the man who hid behind his job. But this agent had a rule: never fall for a woman you’ve saved.

Yet I wasn’t just any woman. I was known among my sisters for taking risks and dreaming big. I was the wild child of the group. We were raised to appreciate every day as the gift it was, and not let anything stand in our way. The more I got to know the brooding, serious FBI man, the more I realized maybe it was my duty to save him.

Excerpt:

“Are you arresting me?” A deluge of tears fell down my cheeks as my chest constricted and my stomach plummeted.

“Ma’am just follow me. Closer.” He waved his non-gun-toting hand as he walked backward.

“I don’t understand. This is so crazy. I didn’t do anything wrong. I swear! It’s my car and I don’t have drugs. You can check it.”

“And I will, when you’re safely sitting in my car.”

“Oh my God! You’re arresting me!”

That’s when I lost it.

I punched my hands into my hair, tugging on the long, beachy golden waves until they were hanging off my now heated neck.

“This is unbelievable! The absolute worst day of my entire life. And my parents died in a fire! At the same time! And I had to go to foster care with my sister. And this day, oh my God. Sonia! My sister…no, Officer, you cannot arrest me. You do not understand what this will do to my sister. She’s the…”

“Ma’am! Get over here now!”  The officer grated through a super scary rumble pushing me into immediate action.

When I got closer, he latched onto my wrist and tugged me close to his body. My chest slammed against his and I placed my hands to his muscular biceps. I stared up into the darkest set of eyes I’d ever seen. Like a black cup of coffee, yet with little golden-brown flecks at the center. His skin was an olive tone, his jaw cut square, framed by cheekbones that were sharp slashes as though chiseled into fine marble. He had dark brown hair that was longer on top and shorter at the sides. If I had to guess, I’d put him in the dark Italian stallion category or Greek god.

He was beautiful.

One of his hands moved to my waist where he squeezed, and he dipped his head so close to my ear I could feel his warm breath against my cheek. “We received a report that someone crawled into the back of a blonde woman’s red old-model four-door Honda Civic at a gas station. First two letters of the license plate are A2.”

“W-what?”

“I need to check your car. Fast. If it’s not you, another woman could get hurt.”

“Oh my god! I did get gas.” I held onto his biceps so hard I may have left nail imprints.

“It’s okay, you’re safe now,” he murmured, and I closed my eyes, taking in his woodsy and fresh linens scent. It helped calm me instantly.

Until we both heard the familiar metal creaking sound against the quiet of the cool night.

I whirled around and saw a thin, tall man standing next to my car, a full ski mask covering most of his face aside from cutouts around the eyes and mouth.

Before I could do or say anything, I was grabbed around the waist and spun behind the cop as the guy in a mask lifted his arm, pointed a gun, and fired off two shots.

One year, 365 days—and then one knock at my door changes everything.

The Cabin, an all-new beautifully written, emotion filled romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Jasinda Wilder is available now!

One year ago, I buried my husband. 

One year ago, I held his hand and said goodbye. 

Now I spend most of my days lost somewhere between trying to remember every smallest detail of our lives, and trying to forget it all. I fill my hours with work until I’m too exhausted to remember him, to feel anything at all. 

One year, 365 days—and then one knock at my door changes everything. A letter from him, a last request, a secret will: 

My dearest Nadia,

Trust me, my love. One last time, trust me. Sometimes the epilogue to one story is the beginning of another.

My Review

The Cabin is a heart-breaking second chance romance that is sure to pull on your heartstrings and leave readers with all the feels.

Nadia and her husband had the greatest love story. They loved one another truly and deeply. Everything was perfect until it wasn’t. When tragedy strikes, Nadia’s world is turned upside down. Fast forward a year, and Nadia is still a shadow of the woman she used to be. She hasn’t learned to move on or grieve, that is until fate intervenes. A knock at the door presents Nadia with one final request from her dead husband….

The Cabin pulled me in from the very first page. I was instantly intrigued and captivated. I knew this story was going to be an emotional one, yet somehow I still wasn’t prepared for it. Nadia’s pain and heartache felt so real, so palpable. I found myself devastated by her husband’s passing, but at the same time, my heart felt so full. He thought of everything, every last detail.

In a way, this story is a bit unconventional. I can’t say too much, but what I will tell you is to trust the story and the journey. While it’s not an easy one, it’s totally worth it.

The Cabin is a story of pain and heartbreak. A story of loss and devotion. A story of finding yourself and learning to love again. When one door closes shut, another one opens. You just have to be willing to open your heart and your mind.

I loved every moment of this story from beginning to end and easily devoured it in a single sitting. Fans of second chance romances, will not want to miss this new story from author Jasinda Wilder.

Excerpt

1: NDA

  “All right, Mr. Bell. You’re all set here, I think.”

The nurse is that peculiar, unique brand of brusque efficiency and Zen-like kindness you only find in an oncology department. She fiddles with the IV line puncturing my left arm, the off-white, veiny medical tape securing it to my forearm. Her eyes are brown, the exact shade of a chocolate Labrador’s fur. She is warm, and caring, but lurking beneath that veneer of caregiver kindness is the detached iciness of someone whose job it is to watch people die.

“It will take a couple hours for this to drip through, and then we have to monitor you for—”

“I know,” I interrupt. I open the lid of my laptop. “I’ve been through this a few times.”

She smiles. “Of course, Mr. Bell. If you need anything, just press the call button.”

I hesitate a few seconds and then say, “There is something.” Then I glance at the curtain which is not quite pulled shut.

She catches my meaning and brings the two ends of the curtain together, the metal rings rasping with a rattling ring. “What can I do for you, Mr. Bell?”

I reach into my messenger bag, sitting on the floor next to this monstrosity of a chair—a freakish, Frankensteinian thing, not quite a lounger and not quite a clinical, medical device, but something in between. It’s made from a rubbery plastic or vinyl material that squeaks at every slight movement, and is too hard and too upright to be truly comfortable, but when you kick back in it and lift the footrest, it forces you into a near-horizontal recline in an unnatural defiance of gravity.

The chair is distracting, and I hate the chair almost as much as I hate the ward, the IV, and the whole damned morbid circus.

In my bag is a thin manila folder. On the label I’ve written three letters in neat block handwriting, in black Sharpie: NDA. I withdraw a single sheet of paper, on which are two and a half paragraphs, single-spaced. It’s in tight, clear legalese, drawn up by my attorney, printed on formal, intimidating letterhead. I hand it to the nurse whose nametag, clipped to her pale green sleeve, announces her as Tiffany Snell, R.N, O.C.N.

“This is an NDA, a nondisclosure agreement.”

She allows a frown, briefly. “Okay?”

I keep my voice low, not whispering, but pitched for her ears only. “I’m here alone, as I’m sure you’ve noticed.”

“Yes. Which is why your observation period has to be so long.”

“I know.”

I reach into my bag and pull out a pen—it’s a nice pen, hefty, metal, with a satisfying clicker, and on the side is my name: Adrian Bell, and my logo, a coat of arms with my monogram. It’s recognizable to most people, that logo; you see it on the title page of my books, on my website, and expensively animated as a production company logo during the title sequences when you watch movies made from my books. I hand her the pen, tap the NDA with it.

“This says you will not disclose to anyone that I was here at all, let alone why. I’m paying for this with cash, so there’s no insurance paperwork trail.”

She frowns again as she reads. “Why is it a secret, may I ask?”

“I have my reasons,” I say. “Whatever else must be done in the process of this infusion, I would like you to do, including observation and my eventual discharge. All right? This means that just one person has to sign this little item.” I tap the NDA again.

“And if I don’t sign it?” It’s not meant belligerently, just…a simple question.

I smile. “Tiffany—Miss Snell. Do I really need to spell this out? You know who I am. I don’t want this getting out. That’s all. I’m protecting my privacy.”

She breathes out gently—it’s not a sigh, more of a thoughtful breath. “What about your wife? Why isn’t she here?”

It takes all I have to not wince at the question. “I’m going to have to decline to answer that, Miss Snell. Can you please just sign? It just means you don’t tell anyone I was here. If coworkers ask, you simply say you can’t talk about it. Don’t make a big deal about it, just that—I can’t talk about it. That’s all.” I pause, smile again. “Would it help you to know I’m a yearly donor to this facility?”

She rolls a shoulder. “Not really. I’m just a nurse.” Another of those thoughtful out-breaths. “Mr. Bell, I’ll sign your NDA. But I have to register my thoughts with you. Hiding this is not fair.” Her warm brown eyes momentarily reveal the sadness she normally keeps hidden. “I’ve seen your file, obviously. What you’re dealing with, it’s…it’s not…”

“It doesn’t have a stellar survival rate,” I finish. “I know.”

“Hiding it from your wife, Mr. Bell—”

“Adrian.”

“It’s really, really not fair of you, Adrian. You’re not doing her any favors. I obviously don’t know a thing about your marriage, but if she loves you—”

I let out a shaky breath, cut her off. “She does, Tiffany. More than I deserve. More than…More than is, perhaps, healthy.”

“So why—”

“I have my reasons,” I say again. Now I do not smile. I frown in a way that says this conversation has to be over. “It’s not fair of me, I know. Believe me, I know. But it’s not fair that I have this. That I’m here. It’s not fair that I’m paying as much for this treatment as I am. What in your life can you list as unfair, Tiffany? A lot, I’m sure. Fair is a myth. Fair does not exist.”

She gazes at me evenly, steadily and then takes the pen from me. Signs the NDA in a nurse’s hasty scrawl. Dates it. Hands me the pen.

“Keep it.”

She lets a small smile cross her lips. “I’ve read all your books, you know. I enjoy them. They make me feel like I can believe in love again.” She gestures with the pen. “Thank you.”

“If you happen to have a copy with you, I’ll sign it for you.”

She bites a lip. “I do, actually.”

“Bring it when you come to check on me.”

She nods, hooks the pen by the clip at an angle in the V of her scrub top. Smiles at me again, and leaves.

You catch more flies with honey than vinegar, my mother used to tell me.

I enter the passcode on my laptop; there’s Wi-Fi here, so I could check email, but I don’t. In fact, I turn Wi-Fi off, so I won’t be distracted by the siren song of email, pull my wireless earbuds from my bag, and turn on Rostropovich via my phone.

I open my manuscript. Close my eyes, take a deep breath, hold it, and let it out slowly. Repeat four times. Pushing away, mentally, the fog of the chemo, the pinch of the IV, the continual beeping of IV machines indicating a bag is finished, the occasional static PA announcements, the squeak of sensible sneakers, and the murmur of quiet conversations.

Push it all away. Find my flow.

It’s there, under the surface. It’s always there; it’s always been there. Like Louis L’Amour said, I could sit in the middle of Sunset Boulevard with a typewriter on my knees, and once I’m in the flow, I wouldn’t notice a thing but the words on the page.

With this story I’m working on now, though, it’s harder, and it takes more effort to sink down into it, more mental gymnastics to get into the flow. I need to find the right balance, tap into the necessary emotions, while still remaining the objective storyteller.

This one is personal. More than all the other books I’ve written over my career, this one…this one requires more of me.

And I have to get it right.

I’m writing it for an audience of one. Well, two. But really, just one. Her.

My love. My Nadia.

Posted on

Rifts and Refrains by Devney Perry is now live! 

From the moment Quinn Montgomery sat behind her first snare and cymbal set, she was destined for fame and glory. As Hush Note’s infamous female drummer, she sets the rhythm for the band’s chart-toppings hits. When people tap their feet to their music, it’s to her pulse. Quinn is content to live in a world away from her family and the cage of her youth. Her only regret is leaving Graham Hayes behind without a goodbye. No matter how many sold-out stadiums she plays, no matter how many crowds sing her songs, his voice haunts her when the music stops. When a family tragedy forces her to return home to Montana, she plans to leave the second she’s paid her respects. But seeing Graham again turns her life upside down. As a boy, he wasn’t able to make her stay. As a man, he might be her future. If they can mend their rifts and find solace in the refrains.

Rifts and Refrains is the second book in the Hush Note Series and it follows the story of Graham and Quinn. From the moment I met Quinn, I was absolutely intrigued with her. Quinn is the famous female drummer for Hush Note. She’s living the dream, but a part of her is missing. She left home at the bright age of 18 and never looked back. But, there’s more to her story than meets the eyes. When a family tragedy pulls Quinn home, Quinn is faced with the past she left behind. Will time be able to mend the pain of the past? Will the heartache ever go away? Will Quinn ever feel good about being home? There’s only one way to find out…. Rifts and Refrains is a heartachingly beautiful second chance romance. It’s rich with emotion and will leave you with all the feels. Quinn left home at the age of 18 after a fight with her family. Nine painful years have gone by with no closure in sight. So, when a family tragedy forces Quinn to come home, not only will she have to face the ghosts of her past, but also the man she left behind. I had a lot of mixed feelings when I first met Quinn’s family. Nine years may have past, but their hurt was clear as day. It shouldn’t have taken a tragedy to bring them back together, but sometimes, it’s the moments that hurt us the most that bring us back together. That brings us to Graham. Graham was everything to Quinn. But, a few harsh moments and wrong decisions tore them apart. Graham doesn’t know what to think now that Quinn has returned home. And it’s not just himself that he has to think about. He’s also a single father. Time may have passed, but there is no denying the pull between Quinn and Graham. The love these two share is the kind that can withstand anything. They just have to be willing to fight for it. Neither one of these characters were perfect. They both made tough decisions that they would learn to regret. But, they were young and stupid and couldn’t see what they were giving up. This couple is the kind that you just want to root for. They give you a reason to stay glued to their story and hope for a happily ever after. Rifts and Refrains took my expectations and blew them out of the water. Devney Perry has knocked it out the park with this emotional second chance romance and will leave readers hooked on each and every word. I’m not ashamed to say that I devoured this book. It was filled with so much delicious angst, there wasn’t a chance of me putting it down. I’m not lying when I say I had tears in my eyes throughout most of this book. I was just filled with so much emotion and so consumed by Quinn and Graham’s story. Rifts and Refrains took me on one heck of an emotional journey and in the end, left me with all of the feels. There wasn’t one moment of this story that I didn’t love and that is a rare thing. This book is truly special. It is everything that I want and need from not only a rockstar romance but a second chance romance as well. I loved getting swept up in this story and highly recommend checking it out.

Excerpt

She took one step before stopping. A smile tugged at the corner of her mouth, the same corner I’d kissed earlier, and I fought the urge to stand and capture that mouth again. Her smile broadened, though there was pain in her eyes.

 “Colin is a cool kid. You’re a good dad, Graham. I always knew you would be.”

She might as well have stabbed me in the chest.

“Thanks,” I said, watching as she walked away.

Fuck me.

When had I never loved that woman?

Maybe that kiss had woken me up. Maybe it had made me realize how goddamn lonely I’d been without her. I had Colin, but there was a corner of my heart that would always belong to Quinn.

I should have followed her nine years ago.

Because now it was too late.

Blog Tour: Out of Love by Jewel E. Ann

I could love the monster or leave the man. 

Out of Love by Jewel E. Ann is now live! 

Conspiracies. Corruption. Serial killers. You name it–I’m fascinated by it. My mom always blamed my overly curious and highly suspicious mind on my dad. My incredibly overbearing dad. Mr. No One Is Good Enough For My Daughter has been terrifying my dates since I turned fifteen. College is my chance to be free from his control and date any guy I want. I’m absolutely certain he would hate Slade Wylder–almost as certain as I am that I do too. Since when have I shied away from trouble? Slade fascinates me. He lives in a house I’m certain is haunted. His dog is trained as well as any guard I’ve ever seen. Rumor on campus is that he deals drugs. It would explain a lot. But it doesn’t explain why he saves me from my darkest moment. It doesn’t explain why I can’t stop thinking about him. And the explanation I finally discover is far more dangerous than any rumor.

Excerpt

Out of Love – Excerpt After their kissy-huggy greeting ended, they walked toward the house with Jericho in tow. I waited for him to glance back at me. He saw me. There was no way he passed me a few seconds earlier on the street and didn’t see me. Yet, he made no attempt to acknowledge me. Until … My boy Jerry stopped abruptly and turned like he caught whiff of my scent. All the warm fuzzies filled my chest. A dog gave me more feels than any man had given me in a long time. Maybe ever. Jericho liked me. Hell, maybe he loved me. He protected me. He smiled when he saw me—tongue out, tail in a low wag. I continued my way up the sidewalk, feigning surprise when he trotted toward me in spite of Slade barking his own command. “Hey, Jerry.” I squatted down to give him double the love Miss Sophisticated gave him … and I had a treat in my pocket because part of me anticipated—hoped for—a chance encounter. “Oh, buddy … I love you too.” I closed my eyes and turned my face side to side while he showered me with kisses. Slade cleared his throat. I opened my eyes—noticing his friend must have gone inside. “Sorry.” I stood, sliding a treat into Jericho’s mouth along the way. “I know it’s hard for you to know he likes me more.” On a shrug, I bit my lips together to keep my shit-eating grin under control. “Inside,” he said to Jericho while looking at me. Jericho turned and headed to the back door. “If you have a job to do … Jerry can hang with me tonight. I’m alone this evening.” “Jericho. And he doesn’t need a babysitter.” “Maybe I do.” His brow tensed a fraction, contemplation settling into a slight frown for a few seconds, before he whistled and Jericho came running. “Send him home when your friends get back.” Why was the only word that sat on the tip of my idle tongue? Why protect me? “What are you going to do?” Okay, apparently “why” wasn’t the only word on the tip of my tongue after all. Six other words were in line first. “Does it matter?” Letting my gaze settle over his shoulder to the firehouse and images of Miss Sophisticated waiting for him, I lifted a single shoulder. “No. Just curious. Is she your girlfriend?” “Does it matter?” “I hate you.” I rolled my eyes. “Worst communication skills ever.” “Good. Hate me. I prefer it.” I recoiled. I didn’t really hate anyone. It wasn’t my personality to be hateful, vengeful, or hold grudges. Why did Slade Wylder want me to hate him? It was a joke. I hated his lack of sharing information. “If you’re selling her some shit that will ruin her life, may I suggest you rethink that? Not cool, Wylder.” “Noted.” Tipping my chin up, I gave him several tiny nods. “Okay then. I’ll take Jerry to my house and spoil him. Maybe he comes back to you … maybe he doesn’t.” Slade let his gaze slide down my body, a slow and easy trip. He didn’t do that when we met. Somewhere along the way, he decided it was okay. I wasn’t sure what reaction he desired from me. Maybe nothing. Maybe he did it out of pure selfish desire. “I’m only allowing this because I love Jerry.” Curious eyes met mine, slightly squinted. I smirked. “Stripping me with those eyes of yours.” Moments … I collected moments in my mind, my heart, my soul, like Aubrey collected rare coins—my mom dying, my dad spending a few years thoroughly drunk. Mostly bad moments—permanent scars. That moment I tucked into my memory forever as one of the first truly great moments. Wylder … The corners of his mouth quirked into pure sin. If Satan was hot as fuck, his name would have been Slade Wylder, and I would have been in a whole helluva lot of trouble.

Blog Tour: The Right Player by Kandi Steiner

The Right Player: A Sports Romance by bestselling author Kandi Steiner is now live!

From bestselling author Kandi Steiner comes a sexy, hilarious, opposites-attract sports romance set in the lively city of Chicago…

I have a three date rule — but it’s not what you think.

See, I’ve been told I’m the “good time girl,” not the one you take home to Mom. And

while that label stung at first, I’ve since embraced it — living the wild and

free life and sticking to a three date max. That’s just enough time to have

some fun and snuff out the possibility of catching feelings. And it’s been

working for me for years…

Until Makoa Kumaka.

Sadly, he also has a three date rule — and it’s the exact

opposite of mine. From the second I meet him, all I can think about is

stripping down that six-foot-five Herculean hunk of a man. But like the

gentleman I wish he wasn’t, he’s making me wait.

The more time we spend together, the more I feel those pesky emotions creeping in.

I’m even tempted to trust him, but blame it on my past or my instincts, I can’t

shake the feeling that he’s hiding something…

I’ve been playing the game forever, and no man has ever won my heart — which meant

they never had the power to break it.

But maybe I just hadn’t met the right player.

Maybe I’ll wish I never did.

Excerpt

I burst through Gemma’s door at seven on the dot the next morning. “We have a problem.” Zach and Gemma were both in the kitchen, their hair a mess, sleep still in their eyes, Gemma mid-yawn while Zach hadn’t even poured the coffee grounds into the filter yet. He cocked a brow at Gemma, who managed a smile before leaning her hip against the kitchen counter and addressing me. “Well, good morning, Belle. Happy Saturday to you, too.” “I know we agreed I couldn’t come over before ten on the weekends but this is an emergency,” I said, nudging Zach out of the way and taking over where he was in the coffee-making process. I’d barely slept, and if I didn’t get some caffeine in the next ten minutes, I’d become a monster. “Shoo.” Zach chuckled, throwing his hands up and backing out of the kitchen. “What’s the emergency?” Gemma asked, wrapping her arms around Zach’s waist when he joined her. “He didn’t want to have sex with me.” Their silence was my only answer, and I huffed, slamming the top of the coffee pot closed as I thrust the carafe under the faucet and turned it on. “I’m confused,” Gemma finally said. “HE DIDN’T WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH ME,” I repeated. “Like, he’s not interested?” “No, like, he had a thick, raging hard on threatening to break loose from his jeans but didn’t do anything about it.” I turned the faucet off with more aggression than necessary, slamming the carafe into place and flicking on the power switch. I crossed my arms and faced them when it started brewing. “He kissed me on the freaking cheek guys.” Gemma chuckled, and Zach looked at her before he turned his confused expression on me. “That’s not an emergency. That’s not even a problem at all. That’s him being a gentleman.” Gemma and I exchanged looks this time. “Please tell me you’re not on his side here.” “I mean…” Gemma bit her lip, looking at her fiancé with a shrug. “That is kind of weird, nowadays anyway.” Zach’s mouth popped open. Gemma threw her hands up. “I mean, even we hooked up on our first date. Remember?” Zach didn’t respond to that. “Thank you,” I said, gesturing to Gemma before I let my hand fall to slap my thigh. “I mean, there we are, post-dinner and all talked out, and I’m running my hands all over his freaking tattoos. I start unbuttoning his shirt and he stops me.” I pause for dramatic effect. “The man stopped me from stripping him.” “Maybe he’s really shy,” Gemma suggested. “I don’t think that’s it. I mean, you saw him in the office. The man is confidence embodied.” “True,” she agreed. “Oh, what if he’s into really freaky stuff? You know. Whips and chains, nipple clamps, all that. And he wants to ease you into it.” I considered it, and I wasn’t mad at that possibility. “A Christian Gray, perhaps?” “Could be! Did he have a room locked off that he wouldn’t let you go in?” My shoulders sagged at that. “No, I saw his whole place. And the man brought everything he owns from California in maybe two-dozen boxes. I think he hired me because he lived like a college bachelor before now.” I shook my head. “I don’t think it’s because he’s so kinky he thinks he’ll scare me.” “Maybe he just wants to get to know you before he has sex with you,” Zach said, deadpan, as if he couldn’t believe he even had to say that out loud. I scoffed, crossing my arms again. “We talked all night. He knew me plenty well enough to bend me over his kitchen counter.” Then, all the blood drained from my face. “Oh my God, what if he has a micropenis?” Gemma’s eyes shot open, and she covered her mouth. “No! You don’t honestly think?” I shook my head, slumping against the counter once more. “Nah. I saw his bulge. No way was that a sock.” We stood in silence for a bit, thinking. “Maybe he has a weird shaped dick. Or a mole or something,” Gemma said. “He wouldn’t let me take off his shirt. Maybe it’s a third nipple,” I guessed. Gemma lit up like I’d told her her hair looked pretty. “Oh, that wouldn’t be so bad!” “Maybe it’s the three date rule.” I blinked a few times before I turned to look at Zach, confused. “Three date rule?” “Yeah. You know… he doesn’t want to have sex until the third date. It’s like the classic dating handbook rule number one.” I looked at Gemma, who tilted her head to the side as she considered it. “That does make sense.” “So, you’re saying I’m not going to get any until he takes me out on two more dates?” I groaned, pulling three coffee cups from the cabinet and topping them all off. I handed one to each of them before wrapping my hands around mine. “Who on Earth still does that?” “Nice guys. Good guys. Guys who are interested in more than just getting in your pants.” Zach shook his head. “Belle, come on. This is a good thing.” “Tell that to my throbbing clitoris, Zach.” Gemma nearly spit out her coffee, and Zach chuckled, throwing up his free hand in surrender. “And on that note, I’m going to watch Sports Center.” He kissed Gemma’s cheek before turning to me. “Good luck with your emergency.” I wiggled my fingers in a goodbye to him, and Gemma and I shared a knowing smile once he was gone.

Release Blitz with Review: Imagine With Me by Kristen Proby

Imagine With Me by Kristen Proby is now live! 

From New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby, comes an all new novel in her beloved With Me In Seattle series! Shawn O’Callaghan loves his job as a screenwriter almost as much as he loves his family. But this latest project could quite possibly test his patience beyond anything he’s ever had to endure. Generally unflappable, the author he’s thrown into the trenches with pushes every button he has. Sometimes twice. And it doesn’t help that he can’t stop thinking about her in ways that are anything but professional. But how can he help it? The brunette is gorgeous beyond reason–and utterly infuriating. Bestselling author Lexi Perry is finally about to leave her mark on the world; after all, seeing her dark and dangerous words brought to life is a dream come true. Until she meets the man who is supposed to make that happen. From the minute they laid eyes on each other, it was clear there would be tension, but she had no idea how much until they got down to business. He obviously doesn’t understand her vision. Though she’s having trouble lately too, given all she can picture is what he looks like under his clothes and imagining what it would sound like if he talked dirty to her in that sexy Irish lilt of his. If they can find a way to meet in the middle, this movie could be one for the ages. As could their love.

MY REVIEW

Imagine With Me is the 15th book in the beloved With Me In Seattle Series and it follows the story of Lexi and Shawn. Bestselling author Lexi Perry’s dreams are about to come true. One of her beloved books is being made into a film. With her head in the clouds, anything is possible….that is until she meets Shawn. Shawn rubbed Lexi the wrong way after their first encounter, leaving her dreading having to work with him. They butt heads at every turn and the idea of them coming to a compromise seems nearly impossible. And it doesn’t help that these two are undeniably attracted to one another. Will Lexi and Shawn find a way to get along? Will all the delicious tension between them lead to something more? There’s only one way to find out….

Every time I dive back into the world that author Kristen Proby has created with the With Me In Seattle Series, it feels like I’ve come home. I’m immediately sucked into the world that she has created and feel this undeniable pull to the characters. And let me tell you, Imagine With Me does not disappoint.

From the moment I met Lexi and Shawn, I had to know more. These two had so much chemistry, I’m surprised my kindle didn’t burst into flames. Sure, they butted heads and were stubborn as ever. But all that complication led to some serious tension. And I for one, couldn’t wait to see how it all played out. Lexi was a fabulous character. As someone who is a total introvert, I found Lexi easy to relate to. Trust me, given the choice, I’d rather be hanging out at home, instead of being surrounded by a bunch of strangers. Lexi is extremely passionate about the stories she writes and has a clear vision in her head. It isn’t easy for her to give up control and to just relax, but if anyone can pull her out of her shell, it’s Shawn. Speaking of Shawn, I liked him right off the bat. He has a good heart and family means the world to him. He too is passionate about his craft and is used to getting his way. Lexi was the perfect match for him. She wasn’t afraid to tell him no and wasn’t afraid to stick to her guns about the things that truly mattered. I loved watching these two try to navigate their way to a happily ever after. Neither one of them was perfect, but that just made me love them more.

Imagine With Me is absolutely everything that I was hoping for and then some. I fell in love with the characters and their story instantly. I love, love, loved all of the secondary characters and am hoping that we will see more of Shawn’s siblings in the future because there is just one story I am DYING for! Imagine With Me is well-paced and entertaining. This story is filled with lots of passion and tension. There’s drama, but nothing over the top. There’s romance and just the right amount of angst and steam. All in all, a perfect read to spend your day getting lost in. I look forward to seeing what this author has in store for us readers next!
