BOOK EXCERPT...

“You want a kiss?”

“Mmmhmm,” I say, closing my eyes as I picture it. God, I’ve dreamed of this moment for ages. “I really need one, Five.”

His mouth touches my earlobe. Lips caress the soft skin of my neck. “Like this?” he asks.

“Yes,” I practically moan. “Just… like… that.”

“Do you want more, Princess?” he asks, his voice low now. Growly. Filled with so much promise.

“More, please,” I say, in my sweetest princess voice.

“Then promise me, baby. Just say those two words. ‘I promise.’ And as soon as you do that, I’ll give you everything you want. OK?”

“Five,” I moan. “Just—”

His hands come up suddenly. He cups my face, stares into my eyes with the most sincere expression I’ve ever seen on him. And underneath that sincerity, I see… fear. “Promise me.”

“Five,” I say, unable to stop staring back. This is everything. Everything I’ve always dreamed of. Five pressing me up against a wall. Me, the only thing on his mind. Except I’m not the only thing on his mind, am I? No. Those creeps from the past are back. That’s why he’s here. And even though I’d normally not give in so easy, I know this is not a game. So I say, “I promise. Now stop talking, you stupid genius, and kiss me already.”

He smiles. Leans in. I close my eyes, ready for it. Finally gonna get what I want.

But then he moves his mouth to my ear and nibbles on my lobe. “Good girl,” he coos. “But I’m not sure I believe you, Princess. I can feel those wheels turning inside your head. They’re grinding hard.” He presses his hard cock against my hip when he says that last part. “So I’m gonna hold off on that kiss until I get back tonight. And if you’ve been good, and if you’ve held up your end of the—”

“What?” I say, pushing him back. “You will do no such thing, Five Aston! I want a fucking kiss and I want one right now! I’ve waited six years for this, and denying me is practically emotional abuse. Now stop fucking around and kiss me, goddammit!”

“Who’s the boss of you, Rory?”

I huff out some air. “Me.”

He smiles. It’s a big, genuine, I’m-gonna-teach-you-who’s-boss smile. “Wrong answer.”

NEW RELEASE with BOOK EXCERPT - EXES WITH BENEFITS by Nicole Williams:


Check out today's new release! Exes with Benefits is a new, full-length, second-chance, standalone from Nicole Williams! Make sure to read the excerpt below. I'm hooked and have already added this one to my TBR pile!

TITLE: Exes With Benefits

AGE GROUP: Adult

BOOK BLURB:
***He wants a second chance. I want a divorce. To get what I want, I’ll have to give him what he does.***

From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Nicole Williams:

The only benefit I want from my ex is a divorce.

We got married for all the wrong reasons. The one thing we got right was our separation. I should have known better than to think I could bet on forever with a guy like Canaan Ford. Everything about him screamed impermanent, from his wild eyes to his restless soul.

When I left him and the small town I’d spent my whole life in, I swore I’d never go back. Never only turned out to be five years. Canaan claims he’s changed, but he hasn’t—same knowing smile, same rough demeanor, same body crafted from sin and sinew. And yet, something is different. He thinks this is his chance for redemption. My disagreement comes in the form of divorce papers dropped in his lap. He refuses to sign them. Unless . . .

He wants a month to prove himself to me—that’s his offer. One month to make me fall in love with him again and if I don’t, he’ll sign the papers. As much as I want to say no, I agree. I can suffer my ex for a short amount of time if that’s what it takes to be free of him once and for all. I fell for him once; I won’t make that same mistake twice.

He says we’re not over. I say we were over before we got started. Only one of us can be right, and I can’t let it be him.

BOOK EXCERPT for EXES WITH BENEFITS

“Canaan—”

Before I could attempt to figure out how to follow that, he lifted his hands. “I’m here to help. That’s all. No hidden agenda. I swear,” he added when I eyed the stack of packing supplies like there was a secret code I was meant to decipher.

“I don’t want to fight. Or argue. Or debate. Or anything else you and I could never stop going on and on about.”

“I don’t either.” He kept his hands raised for another moment before dropping them at his sides. “We didn’t always used to be like that, you know?”

“I remember. And then we turned thirteen and hormones got the better of us and we couldn’t seem to stop fighting.”

“I remember times we weren’t fighting. Lots of times.”

“The only times we weren’t fighting was when we were making out or making something.” I closed the door and cleared my throat.

“Fighting and fucking. We were damn great at both.”

If it wasn’t for the boyish grin he gave me right then, he would have gotten more than a grumble from me.

“We should have just stayed friends. That was the only relationship we were good at.”

“We never could have just stayed friends.”

“Why not?” I glanced around for a sweater to throw on, since that was the second time he’d looked at me like he had to convince himself not to misbehave.

“Chemistry. You and I had it.” He started folding the first box, his hands working with all of his attention directed at me. “You and I still have it.”

The warm jolt that shot through my veins whenever he came close confirmed his theory. However . . .

“You need a lot more than chemistry to make a marriage work. To make any relationship work.”

His shoulder lifted as he taped the box. “Of course you do. But a hell of a lot of chemistry sure doesn’t go bad with all of that other love, trust, and respect stuff. Does it?”

Grabbing a box, I put a good distance between us before starting to make it. “I wouldn’t know.”

Canaan stopped in the middle of yanking a strip of tape. “I felt like we had those things. Maybe not in the amount we should have, but I always loved and trusted you. And I respected the shit out of you too.”

I thought back to all of those nights I stayed awake, waiting for him to come home. My hand cupped around my telephone, whispering silent prayers to whatever god was listening at the time. I thought about the empty bottles and mornings of him not being able to recall anything of the night before. The scents of other women on him. I remembered tending to wounds and mending injuries.

Although the real ones that needed fixed I was never able to heal.

My eyes met his and lingered there. “You had a funny way of showing it.”

His mouth opened instantly, but it closed just as fast. He took a full breath. “I know.”

NEW RELEASE! DEAR BRIDGET, I WANT YOU by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland is now LIVE!


TITLE: Dear Bridget, I Want You
AUTHOR: Penelope Ward/Vi Keeland
AGE GROUP: Adult
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
RELEASE DATE: September 16, 2017
PUBLISHER: Penelope Ward/Vi Keeland
PAGES: Approx. 255
BLITZ COORDINATED BY:
InkSlinger PR

BOOK BLURB:
Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.

No questions asked.
Think about it.
Or don’t.
Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

--Simon

MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 3 Stars!
CLIFFHANGER: Yes!

BOOK BLURB:
The start to a sexy new series from New York Times bestselling author, Kendall Ryan...


She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide. 
 
The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero. 
 
But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess. 

How am I expected to resist when the sexual sparks zap between us and set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?
 
The story continues in Dirty Little Promise, releasing October 30th.


REVIEWER'S NOTE: Dirty Little Secret is book one in the Forbidden Desires series and is an erotic romance written by Kendall Ryan. I was gifted a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review through InkSlinger PR.


3 Stars!

The Review: 
Even though I really liked this read, there were parts of it that didn't work for me. I enjoyed the beginning. In fact, I was sure I was going to love it up until about the 45% mark. After that, things seemed to slow down and I didn’t like some of the character choices, but I am intrigued enough by the story, that I’m excited to read the second book!

Story/Characters... 
For the past year, Emma Bell has been secretly crushing on the mysterious hot guy that comes into the coffee shop she visits. She purposely shows up minutes before he makes his scheduled appearance, just so she can covertly watch him for as long as it takes him to order his coffee and leave. Then she goes about her day as a quiet librarian whose hidden herself from the world. That is, until the day he peeks over at her, drops his business card into the tip jar and leaves just as quickly as he came.

After looking up his business online, she’s got more questions than answers and decides to visit his office to see if the man is as “forbidden” as he appears to be.

Along with his two brothers, Cooper and Quinn, Gavin Kingsley owns Forbidden Desires, a business that cateres to the needs of the wealthy with a variety of classy women. Each brother has their own personality trait. Cooper is playful and mischievous and Gavin is indifferent and detached. But there’s definitely a spark when Emma walks through their doors, and though Cooper sees that spark between Gavin and Emma, he just can’t pass up the chance to have her to himself as well.

Although Gavin does so against his better judgement, Cooper starts a short but fun challenge between him and his brooding brother, as they both compete for Emma’s attention.

There were a handful of sweet, sometimes cute scenes with a lot of intense, sexy, fun and exciting thrown in! And the bedrooms scenes were definitely HOT! The chemistry between Emma and both brothers was explosive. I could see the choice for which brother she wanted to be with, going either way, and I really liked the seduction they each pulled off in trying to win her over.

But there was also a LOT of back and forth. Gavin was committed to NOT being committed. He absolutely refused to “want” Emma. And it wasn’t until the very end that I began to understand why. He’s obviously troubled and keeping secrets. He’s dark and mysterious and he’s got a serious chip on his shoulder. And I LOVED that part of him. He was the kind of anti-hero that you can’t help but love. But then about 70% into the book, he does a complete one-eighty and suddenly he’s all about being with Emma. It was such an abrupt change of heart, that it felt rushed and didn’t flow with the story or who he was as a character. I actually scrolled back a couple of pages to make sure I hadn’t missed something.

And Emma ... I liked her character, up until she decided being a doormat was just fine with her. After Gavin’s been cruel to her, said hurtful things and pushed her away, the moment he decides he’s ready to try for more, she jumps without any hesitation and to me, it made her look like a woman ready for any scrap of attention she could get. In other words, it made her look weak. There was no “maybe” or moments of hesitation. She just jumped, happy her master was finally paying her some attention. If there had been the slighted bit of hesitation, I would have had more respect for her. And it would have felt more true to the strong character she was portrayed to be in the beginning of the book.

Poor Cooper was left hanging and I really think he cared a great deal for Emma. She could have been the one to change his playboy heart. I loved Cooper and if he doesn’t “get the girl” in the end, I hope he gets his own story because he deserves his shot at happiness.

The Wrap Up: 
This book ends on a pretty significant cliffy. I was intrigued enough that I definitely want to see if the author explores and develops the characters more and I want to see how this story unfolds with the surprise we got towards the end. 

Dirty Little Secret was well written and it grabbed my attention. All in all, I liked this read. I just didn’t like some of the character choices or the fact it felt like it stalled about halfway through. But I’m still looking forward to book two.
