Cover Reveal: Coldhearted Boss by R.S. Grey

Posted on

R.S. Grey’s next romantic comedy, COLDHEARTED BOSS, releases June 6th! See the gorgeous cover below and find out more about COLDHEARTED BOSS!

About COLDHEARTED BOSS (available June 6th)

I’m desperate and destitute when Lockwood Construction rolls into my small town with an offer too good to pass up: high wages to any able-bodied man willing to join their crew.

Say no more. I throw on baggy clothes, tuck my long hair under a baseball hat, and apply for a job. Unfortunately, my half-baked idea of disguising myself as a guy is flawed from the beginning. As Shakira says, these hips don’t lie.

Still, I like to think I might have pulled the whole thing off save for one thing:

I know my boss.

Last month, we met at a bar, and after a fiery first encounter, it seems we’re destined to be sworn enemies.

Ethan Stone is ruthless and arrogant, a man I never would have crossed had I known how much he likes to toy with his prey.

He should just fire me and be done with it. Instead, he decides to make me his personal slave. Oh right, I think they’re calling it personal “assistant” these days.

It’s torture, all of it—his bad attitude, his ruggedly chiseled face, his desire to grind me into dust.

Every one of our friction-filled battles burns hotter than the last.

A girl can only hold out for so long. Soon, I’m bound to go up in flames.

My objective? Survive the heat long enough to send home a paycheck.

My real objective? Stop having X-rated fantasies about my coldhearted boss.

COLDHEARTED BOSS releases June 6th – you’ll be able to preorder your copy for .99c a few days before release!

“Oh, I’m sorry. Did you say you were happy? LOLOLOLOL!” ~ Life

Ember Hastings never thought she’d be dragged away from White Timber and everything she loved, thrust in the middle of a big city she hated, or have her husband of nine years say, “I can’t do this anymore,” all within the span of three months, yet here she is.

She misses her family, she misses the farm, and she misses having a backbone and caring whether or not the stain on her shirt is chocolate or shit. She works from home doing transcription. Does she really need to shower or leave the house?

Baker Matthews has been bringing everyone down lately with his grouchy attitude. His job is stressful and sometimes depressing, but he wouldn’t change anything about it. When a glitch with the transcription company he’s using mistakenly sends him notes he wasn’t supposed to see, Baker finds himself laughing out loud for the first time in months.

He’s never met a woman who says whatever she’s thinking and doesn’t fawn all over him when she finds out what he does for a living. Until Ember Hastings comes barreling into his life, calling him Shit Mouth and asking if he has any balls.

But she wants to keep this professional. She made him pinky swear, and you don’t mess around with pinky swears. Baker will have to get creative if he wants to prove to Ember that he’s just her type.

EXCERPT

“Well, I’m good and truly fucked.”

“If you can say the F-word all the time, I can say penis whenever I want,” Lincoln announces as I look up from my phone to find him standing in front of me with his backpack on and his teeth freshly brushed.

“Okay, fine.” I shrug, grabbing my keys from the counter and choosing to deal with this problem right now instead of the Shit Mouth one. “But since I’m the adult, I’ll test it out first, okay there, penis? Did you pack your penis in your backpack? Did you study for your penis test?”

“Moooom,” Lincoln whines as I usher him out the front door.

“What’s wrong, penis? I thought we were cool with penis,” I say as we get into my car and buckle up. “Turn on the penis and find a good song. I bet it will be a song about pe—”

“Okay!” Lincoln finally shouts with a laugh. “It’s not cool when you say it. It’s kind of gross. I won’t say it all the time anymore.”

Well, I’m not going to win Mother of the Year anytime soon, but that’s one problem solved.

We spend the rest of the car ride to school coming up with names for the dog I’m caving on more and more each day, none of which have anything to do with the male anatomy, thankfully. It’s not until I’ve dropped my car off at home and headed back out on foot for my Monday morning coffee ritual that I start worrying about problem number two.

“Jesus, just read the email, Ember. What’s the worst it could say?” I mutter to myself as I lock up my front door and walk down the porch to the sidewalk, my cell phone practically burning a hole in my back pocket with that unread email waiting for me.

I called the client Shit Mouth. I accused him of not having any balls. And steroid use, just because he owns a gym. He’s going to rip me a new asshole.

“It’s not like this was my fault. He never should have seen my notes. I did nothing wrong,” I mutter to myself again as I reach into my back pocket and pull my phone out when I get to the end of my front walkway and turn right.

You did so much wrong. He’s going to murder you. He has your email address now. He could hire himself a hacker and find out where you live. I really need to stop watching Dateline.

Before I can give myself any more time to freak out, I quickly open the email as I walk and hold my breath, wondering if he’ll just call me a bitch, or go right for the kill and whip out the old C U Next Tuesday. Honestly, for a guy who owns a gym and “looks like he works out,” he better bring the big guns, or I will have lost all faith in ’roid rage.

Dammit, Ember! That’s what got you into this mess in the first place.

My breath leaves me in a whoosh, and I come to a stop in the middle of the sidewalk when I read the email. And read it again. And one more time, just to make sure I’m not seeing things.

To: Ember Hastings

From: baker83@gmail.com

Subject: Shit Mouth Transcription

She twirls her hair around her finger every fucking time she laughs.

I said purple, clear as day. Get the shit out your ear.

My balls are where they always are. Slung over my shoulder, because they’re too big to carry. (GIGGLES)

I have never, nor will I ever, use steroids. Drugs are bad. Needles are scary. Shut up. Big, manly men can have fears too, GOD.

She is definitely not a professional interviewer. Does Dan Rather drop his pen every fifteen minutes so he can bend over and show people his cleavage? More importantly, does Dan Rather have cleavage?

But seriously, DO I sound like I have shit in my mouth? I feel like you’re lying.

Not Necessarily Shit Mouth, a.k.a. Baker

MY REVIEW

“As soon as our eyes locked back at Starbucks, I knew it was him. I don’t know how. I just felt it. Which sounds stupid as shit when I say it in my head. But God, the way he looked at me. Like he recognized me instantly, appreciated what he saw, and would chew off the arm of any man who tried to talk to me. It was possessive and hot. Something that should have had me running in the opposite direction, considering it was coming from some guy whose last name I didn’t even know, who I met on-line. I didn’t run away. I walked right toward him like he was a magnet pulling me in.”

“Seeing you in person for the first time, being in the same room with you, listening to you laugh, standing close to you, and watching your face when you put me in my place took my goddamn breath away.”

“Baker’s foreplay is…him. Everything about him. He’s a goddamn weapon of mass sexual destruction.”

Tara Sivec has done it again! Just My Type is the kind of romantic comedy that everyone needs in their life. Baker & Ember are a total force to be reckoned with and their story is one that you are not going to want to miss out on!!!

Just My Type hooked me from the moment I dove into this book. From that very first encounter with Ember, I just knew this book was going to contain nothing but awesomness. You see, Ember’s life was turned upside down when her husband’s job forced them to move to Chicago. But, Ember didn’t let that get her down. She just rolled with the punches and tried her hardest to be the best wife and mother that she could be. Who knew that three short months later, her loser husband would be calling it quits after 9 years together??!! Turns out this change was the best thing that could have ever happened to her. Sure she missed her family and missed the home she grew up in. But, Ember was left with no choice but to just roll with the punches. And boy did she ever. While her life may not be what she was expecting, Ember was ok with that and just wanted to be the woman she was always destined to be. And Baker was the man she never saw coming and certainly wasn’t looking for. Baker & Ember were a match made in heaven and I just love, love, loved getting lost in their story!

When it comes to romantic comedies, Just My Type definitely lands at the top of my list. Not only was this book laugh out loud hilarious (my face hurt from laughing so much), but it also had some really wonderful, down to earth characters that just can’t help wanting to know more about. The banter and chemistry was off the charts. And speaking of banter, the banter between Ember & Baker was my favorite part of the whole story. I just loved how real Ember was with Baker. She didn’t sensor herself around him and just never held back. And Baker loved that about her. She didn’t treat him differently because of his past and what he was doing with his life. She just made him feel like a regular guy. And I just couldn’t get enough. I mean if the banter and interactions weren’t enough for you, the sparks between Ember & Baker were literally jumping off the pages. They just meshed so well together and made it look so easy and so effortless.

Just My Type wasn’t all sunshine and lollipops. There definitely were a few bumps along the way for Ember & Baker. Their story had a lot of heart and realness to it. And I just honestly loved watching them try to navigate their way though all the challenges that life brought to them. I just loved this couple so much that I could just read their story over and over again and never get bored. Ember & Baker are one of a kind and completely unforgettable.

Just My Type is the kind of story that just can’t help but totally immerse yourself in. The characters are one of a kind and totally unique. The story-line is a riot and will have you laughing out loud the entire time. Not only is this story filled with humor; but it’s smartly written, full of heart, has amazing friendships, and wonderful chemistry. It’s sexy and fun with just the right touch of drama. At the end of the day, Just My Type is the kind of story that you want to devour yet savor all at the same time.

n case you couldn’t tell, I absolutely adored this book. Just My Type was like sunshine on a cloudy day. It gave me all the feels, made my sides & face hurt from laughter and kept me dying for more. It was all of that and then some. I loved getting lost in these characters and never wanted their story to end. Tara Sivec has once again knocked me off of my feet and I for one can not wait to see what she has in store for us readers next!

Now, she’s responsible for telling his parents our relationship is real.

We have no choice. We have to act like this isn’t all a mistake, like it’s not all fake, like we’re totally, completely, utterly, head-over-heels in love with each other.

Release Blitz with Review: The Roommate Agreement by Emma Hart

Posted on

banner-1.jpg

Let your homeless best friend stay with you, he said. Being roommates will be fun, he said. It’s only temporary, he said.

He never said I’d fall for him.

The Roommate Agreement, all-new hilarious and romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is available now!

ROOMMATEAGREEMENT-coverdraft1.jpg

You know what isn’t ‘temporary?’ The endless stream of dirty socks in my bathroom and empty food packets under the sofa—and don’t even get me started on the hot guys who take over my living room every Sunday to watch sports.

I can’t take anymore.

So I propose a roommate agreement. One that will bring peace and order back to my life, complete with rules that might just stop my newfound crush on my best friend in its tracks.

After all, there’s only so many times you can see your best friend naked before you start to lose your mind.

Rules. They’re meant to be broken… Aren’t they?

MY REVIEW

“If there was anything better than chips and queso on the sofa, it was chips and queso in bed without pants on. Now there was a quote for a t-shirt.”

“The woman was a menace. If I wasn’t careful, she’d be my downfall.”

“I wanted more. I wanted her. I wanted to be hers, even if she yelled at me before I left because I’d left a pan soaking in the sink and it’d turned the water grimy and I hadn’t emptied it out. It was worth it. Fuck, it had to be worth it.”

Seriously, there is nothing better than spending your day wrapped up in a romantic comedy from author Emma Hart. Her latest release, The Roommate Agreement is a hilarious take on a friends to lovers romance that will leave you cracking up one minute and swooning the next…

The Roommate Agreement follows the story of Shelby and Jay. From the moment I dove into their story, I was hooked. You see, Shelby and Jay have been bff’s for an eternity. So, when Jay needed a temporary place to stay, of course Shelby hooked him up. She thought it would be fun having her best friend always around, but what she never planned on was falling for him. And to make matters worse, Jay is super messy and never cleans up after himself. Inspired by an episode of The Big Bang Theory and a need for order in her life, Shelby comes up with the Roommate Agreement…..

The Roommate Agreement is a fast paced, laugh out loud romantic comedy. I loved the dynamic between Jay and Shelby and was excited to see where their story would go. Their chemistry was off the charts and I really enjoyed how real Jay & Shelby were with one another. I loved the ease of their friendship and was so excited to see their story unfold. At the end of the day, their story was just a lot of fun to get lost in. I laughed. I swooned. I enjoyed the sexy good times. All in all a terrific read with little to no drama that I couldn’t help but devour.

Cover Reveal: Well Suited by Staci Hart

Posted on

fb-coverreveal-banner.jpg

Well Suited, the final standalone in the Red Lipstick Coalition Series from Staci Hart, is coming May 2nd and we have the beautiful cover for you!

well-suited-illustrated-sm.jpg

Chemistry is my love language.

I’ve always been able to separate feelings from chemosignals. A shot of dopamine, a dash of serotonin, and a sprinkle of oxytocin—and bam. You’re in love.

And when egg meets sperm, you’re pregnant.

I couldn’t even be surprised as I stared down at the little blue plus sign, because I knew exactly when and how, and with whom it happened.

When: approximately five weeks ago.

Who: one night stand.

How: prophylactic malfunction.

The upside? I don’t have to go looking for a suitable mate.

Genetically, he’s the cream of the crop. His musculature is a study in symmetry and strength, his height imposing and dominant. He is a man who thrives on control and command, a man who survives on intelligence and resourcefulness. A perfect male specimen.

And the whole package is wrapped up in a flawlessly tailored suit.

I’m having this baby, and he insists we’re well-suited to have it together. And what’s worse? He wants more, in the way of love and marriage.

But love isn’t real. It’s just a product of chemistry.

And if he changes my mind about that, we’re both in trouble.

About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Release Blitz with Review: Make Me Bad by R.S. Grey

Posted on

R.S. Grey’s newest romantic comedy, MAKE ME BAD, is available now! Find out more about it below and pick up your copy today!

About MAKE ME BAD

I was issued a warning: stay away from Ben Rosenberg.

As Clifton Cove’s resident “king”, he thinks he’s entitled to anyone and anything.

The trouble is, I’ve spent my whole life following the rules and playing it safe. I know what it feels like to be the good girl. I’m the police chief’s daughter and a librarian—for adorable children, no less. My wardrobe consists of colorful sundresses and baggy jeans. I might as well have a Post-it stuck to my forehead that reads: Yup, she’s a virgin.

An all-nighter with a fictional hunk is about as exciting as my life gets, until one day, fate decides to take pity on me and shove me straight into the path of Mr. Off-Limits himself.

Oof.

Just as I suspected, every inch of him promises to be my demise. Up close, he’s tall, menacing, dangerously handsome—the type of man who’s never spent a single moment worrying about the opinions of others. A well-behaved girl would do as she’s told and avoid him at all costs, but I’m overdue for a little rebellion.

No more Friday nights sprawled out on the couch in my comfiest pajamas. No more wishing I had the courage to misbehave.

Everyone thinks Ben is going to ruin me.

They think he’ll chew me up and spit me out.

Well, Ben…go ahead.

Tempt me. Taunt me.

Make me bad.

MY REVIEW

“It suddenly feels like I’m her confidant, her accomplice in a daring mission.”

“Madison is finally here and looking like an angel. An angel, I remind myself, who’s decided to fall.”

“It’s your life, your only life, and you get to choose how you spend it.”

“I’m losing my head. I’m losing…That’s just it: I’m losing, and Ben is winning. Ben is convincing me that this kiss could be a beginning and that even though he’s from a world of polished silver and trust funds and expectations, I could meet those expectations. I could be the girl he wants, the girl who gets the guy. Please fall in love with me, I beg with my mouth as our kiss turns hungrier, more savage.”

If I had to sum up Make Me Bad in one sentence it would be: A chance meeting that brings two total opposites together in an unforgettable slow-burning romantic comedy. Make Me Bad is a ton of fun with awkward moments that will have you laughing out loud one moment and then falling head over heels the very next. I have been in the absolute worst book rut and this book was just the read I needed to pull me out of my funk.

Make Me Bad has a coming of age vibe to it. It’s about finding oneself and discovering who they are meant to be. Having the courage to stand up for yourself no matter how afraid you are. I totally love the idea of the bookworm asking the cool guy to make her be cool. There’s so much more to Madison than even she realizes. She’s already beautiful and I totally dug her nerdyness. She was cool in her own way, but still maintained her innocence and naivete. Yes, her naivete might have been annoying at times, but when you understand how overprotective her family has always been, you kind of understand why she is the way that she is. I love, love, loved seeing her transform and grow throughout this story and become the woman she always was destined to be…. Then that brings up to Ben. Ben might have the charmed life, but he also rocks that bad boy vibe. He’s got a terrible reputation and is the last person that Madison should be with. But, when a chance meeting brings these two together, wild horses couldn’t keep them away. Their chemistry is instant and the banter off the charts. I just knew when Madison propositioned Ben to make her bad, that this was story I would not be able to pass up.

Make Me Bad was such a fun book to get lost in. When it comes to romantic comedies, you can never go wrong by picking up an R.S. Grey book and she does not disappoint with Make Me Bad. Make Me Bad is has great characters that are easy to relate to, a story-line that will make you smile and fall head over heels in love. I had the best time getting lost in Madison and Ben. Their story made me laugh and swoon and just left me with the biggest smile on my face. Make Me Bad was the perfect book to spend this snowy day getting lost in.
