THE HOT ONE - cover

 

A sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely…

Ever notice that sometimes a guy will do something really stupid, like let the love of his life slip through his fingers?

Yeah. I’m that guy. But the instant I run into her again I’ve got one goal and one goal only—a second chance. The plan? Go big or go home.

Fine, at first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend’s place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her heart again. But trust me on this count—she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you’ve got to play to your strengths when you’re fighting an uphill battle. As a lawyer, I know how to fight, and I’m prepared to fight hard for her. Because sometimes you need a second chance at first love.

He’s the one who got away . . .

The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that at my job, showing off his rock-hard body that drove me wild far too many nights. That man with his knowing grin and mischievous eyes is nothing but a cocky jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he’s not . . .? I’ve tried like hell to forget him, but maybe I’m cursed to remember the guy I fell madly in love with eight years ago. Lord knows I’m not over him, so what’s the harm in giving him a week to prove he’s changed in the ways that matter?

After all, how do you resist the hot one . . .?

Melanie’s 4-Star Review:

A sexy second chance romance that will have you thinking back about the one who got away. I enjoyed the premise and the characters very much. I thought that both Tyler and Delaney were very much easy to relate with and so was their story. Second chance romances are my ultimate love, my kryptonite because there’s just something so special about re-discovering and redeeming what is meant to be yours. And in The Hot One, we get to see exactly that.

I pretty much read this entire book in one sitting. It is fast paced even with all the back and forth dialogue between the multitude of characters in the book. I loved that from the start you knew exactly where Tyler and Delaney’s hearts were headed—right back to one another where they belonged. It is their journey to reconnect that makes you dissolve into a puddle of goo. Tyler’s take ‘em by the horns attitude doesn’t end in his profession but also plays into winning Delaney back. Having made the choice between his career and the woman he loved in college he now realizes just how much he’d sacrificed when he unexpectedly runs into her. When old feelings and regrets come to surface for the both of them, they quickly realize just how much they meant to one another.

There wasn’t a time in this book when you didn’t feel their connection. Quite simply, they were destined to be with one another. Their chemistry on and off the sheets turned me into a giddy sixteen year old. The Hot One is the perfect escape with a really beautiful message –timing is everything. There are moments in our lives where we do have to choose—times where we need to first find ourselves in order to get to a point in our lives where we are supposed to be at and when things are truly meant to be, kismet plays its game and reconnects us to the person we are fated to be with. For me, this was the true beauty behind Lauren Blakely’s The Hot One.

THE HOT ONE - RDL teaser 1

Excerpt:

Technically, I didn’t drop my drawers the first time I saw her again. Just my balls.

The ones in my hands. Juggling balls.

Here’s how it went down. Picture a Sunday morning in Central Park. A perfect summer day. The grass was green, the breeze was warm, and I’d just spent the last few hours getting acquainted with turtles and frogs at the children’s zoo because I’m an awesome uncle. And Carly’s one cool seven-year-old.

The kid loves all creatures, but especially the ones that jump and crawl, so I took her to the enchanted forest part of the zoo. When we finished, she tugged on my shirt sleeve, batted her hazel eyes, and asked ever so sweetly for an ice cream cone.

Like I stood a chance at resisting her. C’mon. She’s my cousin’s kid, and clearly she gets her charm from our side of the family.

With her hand in mine, we strolled across the grass near the running path, hunting for the nearest ice cream dealer.

And then Carly did that thing little kids do.

She shrieked for what seemed like absolutely no reason. Next, she pointed to an impossibly tall dude wearing a beret while juggling two Rubik’s Cubes, two orange balls, and a small green beanbag.

“He can do five, Uncle Tyler!” Carly shouted, her eyes going wide.

“Five isn’t too shabby,” I said with a shrug.

She turned to me with a questioning stare. “I’ve never seen you do five.”

“That’s because I haven’t shown you all my tricks yet.”

“Can you really juggle five balls?”

I scoffed. “Please, I can do that with my eyes closed.”

I didn’t put myself through law school juggling for nothing.

Just kidding.

You can’t put yourself through law school juggling anything but insane class schedules and lack of sleep.

Carly arched an eyebrow. So did the juggler, as he kept up the cascade of his quintet. Show-off.

“I want to see. Show me,” Carly urged.

Yeah, Carly’s a chip off the old block. She’s all about challenging me, and I’m all about rising to the challenge.

The stick-thin guy with the beret raised his chin. “Have at it, man.”

With clockwork precision, he let the balls fall out of orbit and into his palm. Next, the Rubik’s Cubes. Then the beanbag. He stepped closer, handed me the objects, and flashed a crooked, put-your-money-where-your-mouth-is grin.

Game on.

Packs of runners jogged along, cyclists wheeled over the black asphalt, and rollerbladers whizzed by on the concrete. With my feet parked hip’s width apart, I stood at the edge of the grass getting a feel for the items, weighing them, and then one, two, three, four, five, I whisked each one up into the air in a high oval arc. Round and round, in a perfect five-ball cascade.

Carly clapped, then demanded more. “Yes, now close your eyes!”

I groaned. What was I thinking? Juggling with eyes closed is fucking hard. But I could pull it off for a couple seconds. My special skill. I obliged my niece’s request, pulling off a few quick blind ovals. Five seconds later, after I’d shown off that particular party trick, I opened my eyes.

And I saw a vision from my past.

A blond beauty, with long legs, a lovely round ass, and a high ponytail swishing back and forth across her shoulders. She ran along the path in tiny orange let-me-peel-them-off-with-my-teeth-pretty-please running shorts. And that face. Dear Lord, the stunning face of an angel. High cheekbones. Deep brown eyes that saw me like no one ever had. Those red lips, shaped like a bow. Fuck me, the things she could do with those lips. The things I taught her to do with that sinful mouth.

Delaney sure as hell knew how to use it, and I don’t just mean in the bedroom. We used to talk about anything and everything when we were together in college. Days with her. Nights with her. Best time of my life. That woman was full of spark. Full of fire. So damn passionate. And look at her now.

Jesus Christ.

It had to be illegal to be that smoking hot.

His Princess By Alexa Riley Release Day Blitz/Review

 

 

 

goodreads-badge.png

 

 

Alena is a princess, and with that comes responsibility. Like marrying the giant caveman King Roman, who looks more like a warrior than a ruler. Everything about him is intense. Especially the way he looks at her. But she’s been promised to him, and there’s no way out.

Roman took one look and made up his mind. Princess Alena will be his and no one will stop him from taking her. Everything about her belongs to him now, and waiting one week for a wedding isn’t going to happen.

This beast of a man might just claim his princess before she has a chance to say “I do.”

Warning: Oh, this is good. It’s so, so good. Trust us.
fullsizerender-11
Oh my lord! This book was hot! And I absolutely loved it! It had so many swoon worthy moments in it! And I absolutely loved the sneaking around that was going on!!
I loved how Roman couldn’t wait to make Alena his bride. That he was so overcome with need and want that he just had to have a little taste of her before the wedding!“I’m going to eat your sweetness, and then I’m going to give you mine.”

He also wanted to show Alena that he wanted more from her.

“I’m your god, princess. I’m the beginning and the end of your world. I will give you everything you ask and lay it all at your feet, but there is nothing beyond me. Do you understand?”

“Yes, my king.”

Alena brought out a softer side in Roman. He was known to the people as the Wall. He had to take on the role as king once his father died. So he took the responsibility seriously. But once Alena touched his heart he began to soften.

Yes, they are watching The Wall crumble for his queen.”

This was a good read with a fairy tale ending

“I love you, my queen,” I say, kissing her shoulder.
“I love you, my king.” She closes her eyes and smiles contentedly.

I can’t wait for the next book in this series!!

Chapter 1

 

*Alena*
“Is that him?” Tabby asks as she comes up behind me to get a better look. Her long dark hair tumbles onto my shoulder as she peers at my laptop screen. It’s as if she’s never seen the man in question. Everyone knows who King Roman is. Well, if you’re royalty you do. Right now, there’s not a royal alive who doesn’t know who he is, because he’s decided to take a wife. A wife of his choosing, and I’ve been chosen.
It’s the fate of someone with my bloodline. I don’t get a choice on who I get to marry, so when my family was presented with the arrangement, it was decided behind closed doors, and papers were signed. I’m officially the promised bride to the King, and that’s that.
I look at my future husband, and there’s no missing that Roman is a born leader. It radiates off him in commanding waves. I can even feel it through my computer screen. Though I’m not sure if he should be sitting on a throne or leading an army of men into battle. From the look on his face, you would think he was a warrior.
He’s nothing but lines and fierce angles. The man is well over six feet tall and then some. In his pictures he even towers over some of his own security. His hair is dark as night and comes to his collar, but it does little to hide his eyes, which are just as black. He’s not lean either. He’s thick and broad like a rugby player, and I can see why the public has nicknamed him The Wall. He radiates strength and power, and my hand is shaky as I click the next image.
“Tabby. I can’t marry him,” I plead with my sister.
I don’t even know how I was chosen over her. Tabby is the one men flock to. Her beauty lights up a room. I look nothing like my family.
Somehow I ended up barely over five foot with blonde hair, blue eyes, and the fairest skin. My sister, on the other hand, like the rest of my family, is almost six foot and has long black hair, deep green eyes and skin that looks like the sun kisses it every day.
I stand out in a way I don’t like. I’ve felt like I don’t belong since birth, but Tabby would never make me feel that way.
She wraps her arms around me from behind, both of us still staring at the screen. “I tried,” she says, making me gasp. I turn around and look at her.
Tabby is dreading getting married, probably because my parents have been talking about her marriage since she could walk. The worst part is, she doesn’t even want to marry royalty. In fact, she despises the idea. If it was up to her she’d have a little cottage with twenty kids and a brute of a husband. Yes, a brute. One too many romance novels and now Tabby is in love with cavemen. “I knew you wouldn’t want this.” She shakes her head. “I’m sorry, Al.”
“I can’t believe you’d do that for me.”
“You know I’d do anything for you. I’m your big sister. It’s my job.” She pulls on a strand of my hair. “I was hoping that maybe if he had agreed to marry me instead, I could bring you with me. But to be honest, I don’t even think they asked him.” She walks over to my bed and plops down on it. “He wants you.”
“Maybe. Maybe I can ask to take you with me,” I try. If I get married to this man and have to leave home, it wouldn’t be so bad if I had Tabby with me. Because when I talk about home, I don’t mean the one my parents made for us. I mean Tabby is my home. The thought of us being apart is something I don’t want to face.
“Yeah, right.”
I knew that wouldn’t be possible before the words left my mouth. Tabby is my parents’ golden ticket. She’s had so many offers of marriage we’ve lost count. But my parents turned them all down. Never rich enough, never had enough status or power. Tabby is twenty-four and still unmarried. That isn’t normal. I’m barely marrying age. I thought I had more time and even thought maybe I would never be asked. I’d hoped that I could just go wherever Tabby went.
But to my—and my parents’—shock, I was chosen. And by someone with a lot of power and money.
I turn back to my laptop, forcing myself to look at my future. Not only is Roman intimidating, the word is he rules with an iron fist. I click through pictures of him and never once do I encounter one where he’s smiling. His face is always straight and stoic, even in the pictures of him as a little boy with his mother and father.
I don’t know how long I scroll though the pictures when Tabby interrupts me. “Who’s that?” she asks, and I jump. I didn’t even feel her come up behind me.
“Princess Kaul,” I say, glancing down at the print under the picture. “Looks like they are on a date at some ball. She’s pretty,” I mutter, feeling a pang of jealousy that my husband—future husband, I correct—was out with another woman not even a month ago.
“Meh,” my sister says dismissively. “Who knows if she’s really pretty once you wipe all that shit off her face.”
I giggle.
“Why didn’t he just marry her?”
“Maybe he got all that make-up off and ran for the hills. Maybe she’s annoying. Maybe she chews with her mouth open. Who knows.”
“But he’s going to marry me without even meeting me. What if I do all that stuff? I can do all that stuff.” I turn in my chair. “Layer my face up, stuff my mouth with food so he can see every chomp. And we both know my laugh is the worst.”
“It is pretty bad,” Tabby agrees, grinning.
It’s not that it sounds funny, it’s just kinda loud. Really loud. Maybe a little infectious, too, because a few times I’ve started laughing, then Tabby and I are laughing about my laugh, and this will go on for five minutes. It drives my parents nuts, which is an added bonus.
Tabby’s eyes light up at a thought. “He’s coming for dinner.”
My shoulders drop. I don’t know why she’s excited about that.
“Maybe you can make a fool of yourself. Make him realize that you aren’t the one he wants!” Tabby jumps up, and I can see this plan is already in motion.

BLOG TOUR & BOOK REVIEW: Royally Matched by Emma Chase

RM-FB-on-sale-5

 

 

 

Royally-Matched-3D-bookSome men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world’s most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

Melanie’s 5+ Star Review:

Holy SWOON alert, Batman!!! I’m talking level ten swoon here. If you are in the mood for pure, unadulterated romance then Emma Chase’s Royally Matched is just the book for you! I was quite literally feeling the high from everything that was Henry and Sarah! My head was floating amidst the clouds, seeing nothing but hearts all around me. UGH! I wish this would release before Valentine’s Day because seriously you guys, this is THE PERFECT read to get you into the mood. I didn’t think it was possible for Henry to outdo his brother Nicholas from the first book in this standalone series, Royally Screwed but my gosh this playboy totally did. I have always been a believer that the naughtiest, toughest womanizers fall the hardest when they find the one and this right here just proved it. Le Sigh. Yes… So many sighs and so much squealing happened over the course of one sitting.

The characters and their wicked chemistry are what made me fall madly in love with this book. I loved, LOVED both Henry and Sarah. Their vulnerabilities only proved to show how strong willed and in touch they were of themselves. I loved the honesty between them and their abilities to strengthen one another’s weaknesses. They were an answer to one another’s questions. It’s like they just fit together so perfectly even if from the exterior no one would ever think to put them together. Sarah, is a soul sister. An unpretentious literary enthusiast who once again proves that book nerds are the new sexy. She has a gentleness about her that could calm the harshest storms and in a way that’s exactly what she does with Henry. A modest, quiet, beautiful woman who tames the ostentatious, rowdy playboy prince. It’s what makes for the very best love stories.

Royally Matched was lit up by the delicious intimacy between Sarah and Henry. What is that saying?? “It’s always the quiet ones?”

You guys. The heat factor—WHOA MAMA!!! I was burning up and my lady bits were going haywire. I felt like I was literally vibrating—intense and inhibited. This is exactly what I mean when I say that I still believe in fairytales but my version just happens to have a dirtier mind. So flippin’ good!!! I had this silly smile on my face the entire time. Emma Chase has once again proven just why she’s an automatic must read author for me. The way that she’s able to weave the romance alongside the raunchy, and still be able to have you clenching your gut, rolling around the floor laughing is magic. No one else can quite pull it off like she can.

I will say it again, Royally Matched is SWOON WORTHY. It’s made for readers like me — a hopeless romantic with a dirty, dirty mind. I cannot recommend this book enough. The perfect read to pick up at any time, at any day, anywhere. So basically, just buy this beauty and enjoy the heck out of Henry and Sarah like I did. This absolutely has my book shelf worthy stamp of approval and another one added to my top 2017 reads.

RELEASE TOUR & BOOK REVIEW: Pucked Off by Helena Hunting

sbpr-po-rt

Pucked Off, an all-new emotional and sexy STANDALONE from Helena Hunting is LIVE!!

Pucked Off by Helena Hunting
Genre: Contemporary Romance

businessman working on laptop  in black suit

***A Standalone novel in The Pucked Series***

I’m NHL defense man Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance.”

I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.

Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.

I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.

At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.

I shouldn’t want her.

But I do.

I should leave her alone.

But I won’t.

Melanie’s 5-Star Review:

I’ve had a long standing relationship with Helena Hunting’s Pucked series. Pucked was the ultimate love at first read and like all relationships, there was a bit of a struggle with Miller and Sunny’s story but I stuck with it, knowing full well that things could only start getting better again and Ms. Hunting didn’t disappoint. The flame that dimmed was once again lit with Randy and Lily’s story. So when the official blurb and release date were released for Lance Romero aka Romeo’s story I was as always, fully on board! What I didn’t expect was for Pucked Off to shatter all my preconceived notions about this series in general. Lance and Poppy’s story was stirringly different from what you’d expect from the usually crass and laugh out loud style. Pucked Off is definitively the most heartwarming and sweetest of all. It’s the sort of book that will have you clenching your e-readers or paperbacks against your chest, staring into space and sighing when it’s all said and done.

If you’ve followed this entire series like I have, you will be thrilled to know that Lance’s story goes far beyond what you’ve been accustomed to from the other books. He is nothing at all like what we have been led to believe. He is broken and vulnerable with a past that hurts to even just read about. Unwilling to believe that he’s worthy of deserving genuine happiness in life, he succumbs to the rumors and to the betrayal that have been thrown his way. My goodness did I just want to envelop him in a tight hug during so many times in this book. This need to protect him and to shelter him from anymore hurt was strong

It isn’t until Poppy reappears in his life, that he is forced to face the demons he’s allowed to decay every surface of his mind and his heart. Poppy unbeknownst to Lance is actually a blast from the past and if you’ve read the previous books in the series, you’d know exactly where to place her but again the history between them is so, so much more than first thought. It’s the rediscovery and the epiphany that comes alongside it that will just have your heart squeezing overtime. I’d find my breath coming faster and faster, my eyes going wider and wider each time they began to know more and more of one another. There was something so natural about the two of them, like they’ve been waiting to crash unto one another to become this one, harmonious unit. Like, they just made sense.

There was a desperateness to Lance’s need for Poppy. Like he would move mountains just to get to her and wouldn’t allow anything to harm her in any way. Quite frankly, it weakened my knees. I loved how Lance treated their relationship with such fragility because of how much he treasured Poppy. The sense of disbelief that someone as precious as her could love him much less for him to actually deserve her, both broke and filled my heart. I was bursting from the seams at their every touch, in each kiss, and in every look.

Pucked Off blew me away. Everything about it was completely unexpected and just absolutely wonderful. It made my heart pitter patter and my insides melt. Lance Romero’s struggles only made the good that much greater because it once again makes us realize that without the bad we cannot fully comprehend the true meaning of what is genuinely good for us. It is our struggles and our challenges that helps us identify the difference between what we think we deserve to what we essentially deserve. Lance’s and Poppy’s story is the perfect reminder that timing is everything and that the very best things come to those who wait. This has my bookshelf worthy stamp of approval and one I cannot wait to re-read.

Excerpt:

Armed with my clipboard, I walk down the hall to the waiting room. Lance is impossible to miss. Despite the fact that he’s wearing a sweatshirt and the hood is covering half of his face, he’s more than six feet of broad, hockey-playing man.

He’s so wide his shoulders encroach on the chairs on either side, which would explain why no one is sitting next to him. He’s slouched down so his head rests on the back of the chair, and his hands are clasped in his lap, a baseball cap hanging off one knee. His lips, plush and soft—I know since I’ve had them on mine; it might have been a decade ago, but I remember it clearly—are parted. He looks like he’s asleep.

I clear my throat. “Lance Romero?”

He doesn’t move.

Bernadette, the receptionist, gives me a meaningful look.

I clear my throat again and call his name a second time. He jolts awake and the hood falls back, exposing his face. It’s not in good shape. He has a black eye and bruises on his left cheek. There’s a fly bandage across one eyebrow.

Sadly, he’s still hot.

He blinks a few times, yawns, and smacks his lips, his tongue touching the split in the bottom one. His gaze sweeps the room and finally lands on me. Heat explodes in my cheeks and courses through my limbs, warming me from the inside out as he starts at my sneaker-clad feet and roams up over my yoga pants to my company-issued T-shirt before stopping at my face. I can’t look directly at him for more than a couple of seconds. I sincerely hope he doesn’t remember me. I cannot go there and also be professional.

I’m sure the smile he gives me has melted many a panty off a slutty bunny. Mine stay right where they’re supposed to, wedged up my ass.

I force a polite, professional veneer. “I’m ready for you now.”

I spent twenty years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted.

I’m done being invisible.
It’s time to move on.

A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He’s kind, sexy, and attentive–everything a girl could want.

I thought I got it right this time.
That my heart could mend, and I would be happy.
Apparently, some things really are just too hard to walk away from.

The Boxer by Piper Rayne COVER REVEAL

Title: The Boxer
Series: Modern Love #2
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: Djordje Grbic
Release Date: March 1, 2017



Blurb

“Who knew a bad boy could mend a broken heart.”

What does a girl do after she discovers her fiancé is a cheating bastard?

In my case, I performed the ritual implosion of all scorned women. I drowned my sorrows in cases of white wine, wallowed in gallons of ice cream, and ignited a bonfire to burn away every damn remnant of his existence. Six months later, the only result was a permanent impression of my ass on the couch.

Adventure Dating my friends dared.

A new and exciting opportunity they said.
I thought they were crazy, but I’m not one to back down from a challenge, so I signed up for the entire four-week deal.

That’s where I saw HIM. Lucas Cummings. He isn’t the classic rich boy I usually end up with. The one whose idea of working up a sweat is waiting for his margarita to be served on the beach. Nope. He’s a rough and tough bad boy that all fathers warn their daughters about. You know the type. Cocky swagger, chiseled jaw—the ‘V’.

SOLD, I said to myself, until I discovered he was so much more than just a BOXER.

Left Hook.

Right to the heart.

Author Bio

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two established authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?

We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon holed into a specific outline. We wanted to give readers a story without them assuming how the story will flow. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it.

What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
