Synopsis

 

 

Life being Layton Parks isn’t easy. Everything she touches seems to just fall apart at her fingertips – the air conditioning, the coffee maker, her ability to say no. A push over at heart, Layton does what she’s told, when she’s told. With two jobs bleeding her dry, she barely has time to register the rut she seems to have fallen in. Despite this, she’s okay with her life. It’s simple and uncomplicated.

 

Until it isn’t. 

 

Kane Thatcher doesn’t need any help in being broken because he’s already a walking mass of shattered shards. Unlike Layton, Kane is no one’s Yes Man. After a split decision three years previous turned his world upside down, he’s finally living independent, with no one to worry about but himself.

 

Until he isn’t. 

 

He’s curious about her, and determined to make her stand up for herself and be who she wants to be.

She’s a little scared of him, yet knows there’s a softer side of him hiding behind all the hate. 

Will they bring out the best in each other, or will outside obstacles force out the worst? Will hate win over love, or will they be able to navigate their way through it together?

Mobster’s Bones

(Mobster, #5)

by

Amy Rachiele

Sept 24th – Sept 30th

 

 

How

can things you only glimpse for a moment sear themselves into your memory?

~Alessandra, Mobster’s Bones

Alessandra has a problem. It’s not that the Mafia is the only life she knows,

her father and best friend being members.

She’s being followed. Her stalker destroys the one thing Alessandra thought

they could never touch. She’s now forced to flee the only home she’s known,

Palmetto.

How can someone be so beautiful? The morning sunlight is coming through the

blinds on my window casting a glow around Alessandra. She has been here for a

week, and we have fallen into a routine. It is sort of like she has always been

here. Imagining her leaving, gives me an unwanted stone in my stomach.

~ Troy, Mobster’s Bones

Troy has his life planned out perfectly; graduate from Notre Dame with honors,

get married, live a quiet life with his wife and kids in the suburbs. Just like

his parents and their parents before them.

Things don’t work out according to plan – the scaffolding of his life is

crumbling before his eyes. Troy’s plans didn’t include the daughter of a mob

enforcer showing up at his door and sleeping in his bed. Are Alessandra and her

mafia family worth throwing away the life Troy has always wanted?

This book can stand alone or be read as Book 5 in the Mobster Series.

(Book 1 is Mobster’s Girl)

 

 

 

“Then let me explain something to you.” He puts his arm around my shoulder like

a very bad scene from the Godfather. “You are friends with them. In turn that

makes you friends with me… and Antonio is marrying Megan, your friend. Antonio

is going to be the Boss. We treat friends like family. That means you are

friends with, and practically family with, all of us.”

~ Vito, Mobster’s Bones

July 10th – July 20th

 
Ten yearsIt’s been ten years since he ripped my heart out and left me broken and
destroyed.

Ten years of rebuilding, of moving on.

But do you ever really move on from your first love?

Now faced with the past, how do we deal with the future?

Colin

Ten years.

She left me a hollow man. No one has captured my heart since.

Ten years spent focusing on my career and having fun.

That is until she reappears in my life.

Can I convince her to give us a second chance?

 
 

 

What do you say about yourself? Aren’t
we supposed to write these in third person? Oh well, here I go! I have been
writing and reading since I was able to pick up a pen and read a book. I can’t
even begin to list the amounts of book that I’ve devoured over the course of my
life; from the Babysitter’s Club to R.L.Stein to the classics and the novels of
my degrees. I have spent countless hours between the covers of classics during
my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Western Connecticut State University,
resulting in a BA English: Comparative Literature and a MA English:
Professional Writing.
Recently, I have been focusing both my
writings and my readings in erotica, BDSM and contemporary romance. And no,
Fifty Shades of Grey did not get me on the BDSM bandwagon. If anything it
opened the idea up more to me, but alas I have my own opinions on the trilogy.
I am trying to focus my writings on the
emotional aspects of the erotic world, the emotional bondage of BDSM. I am
interested in what makes people want to be dominant or submissive, the
connection, etc. But I do like to read about a good flogging and bondage story
too, the smuttier the better. 🙂
I live in New England with a wonderful
family that keeps me busy when I am not at my day job or writing. I hope you
enjoy your stay.

Release Day Blitz The Temptress By C.J. Fallowfield

The
Temptress

There’s just something about a French accent, something that conjures images of
romance, sex and passion. There’s a reason French is called ‘the language of
love.’Lulu McQueen runs an exclusive honeytrap agency, to test the fidelity of rich
men for their suspicious partners. While her business flourishes and her track
record in the field remains unbroken, earning her the nickname of The
Temptress, her personal life isn’t so successful.

A trip to Paris, years ago, led to the most erotic encounter of her life with
Luc, a charismatic, dominant, irresistible Frenchman. For one night she
experienced bliss on a scale she’d never encountered and fled in the morning,
ashamed of herself, but her Parisian one night stand was burned into her
memories and no one since had compared.

With no one available on short notice, Lulu steps in to lure Mrs. Le Grand’s
rich husband, for an extortionately high fee. Lulu’s in for the shock of her
life when she finds her mark at the hotel bar. Luc Le Grand still has a face
and body to make Adonis weep. He exudes confidence, masculinity and raw sex
appeal.

The question now isn’t whether Lulu can tempt him, but whether she can resist
him, retain her reputation and secure her fee, or whether she’ll fall under Mr.
Le Grand’s spell. Again.

*** BOOK BLITZ – How I Became A Teenage Survivalist by Julie L Casey ***

Synopsis:

Bracken is a typical teenage boy, more interested in the angles of the girl’s exposed back teasing him from the seat ahead of him than in anything the geometry teacher could present. His life is filled with school, video games, and thoughts of girls, not necessarily in that order. Life just flows along uneventfully and unacknowledged, like the electricity that courses through the power lines — until PF (Power Failure) Day. On PF Day, the sun strikes Bracken’s world with an unseen surge of electromagnetic fury, which cripples power stations and burns transformers to crispy nuggets of regret.

No one in Bracken’s world had ever thought about how much they depended on electrical power, but now, without it, they are plunged into survival mode. Bracken soon realizes how lucky he is to live on a farm in the Midwest. What seemed like a dull and backwards life before is now the greatest chance for survival in what seems like a powerless world. Food, water, and heat are readily available, although hard work is required to make use of them. Bracken and his family must learn to survive like their ancestors, who settled their land.

Excerpt

I run my fingertips over the blue-and-silver paintwork as I walk toward the back end. Bending over, I start poking around, taking a look at the engine.

“Please tell me that you’re my birthday present.”

The Irish drawl has the hairs on the back of my neck standing on end.

I turn my head to find Carrick Ryan standing behind me.

Oh. Wow.

He’s definitely better looking in the flesh than on television. I knew he was attractive. But blonds aren’t usually my thing. I’m more of a dark-hair-and-dark-eyes kind of girl.

But his dirty-blond hair, blue eyes laced with sin, and full lips—the kind of lips you spend hours sucking on—and that chiseled jaw decorated with stubble…yep, it all seems to be working for me. Well, my body anyway. Definitely not my head. Man-sluts are not my thing.

My eyes meet with his as he lifts them from blatantly staring at my arse. The look in them hits me straight in the gut, surprising the hell out of me. His eyes are profoundly blue and filled with heat. My skin starts to prickle as his intense stare burns me up.

I’ve never had such an instant visual reaction to a man before.

Fuck.

Take it easy, Andi. This isn’t a problem. You’ve met good-looking men before. You can turn this off. Drivers are a no-go area, especially ones you work for.

My job is too important to lose over a man.

Straightening, I turn to face him.

“Hello,” I say in my most confident and formal voice.

I get nothing back, and that’s because he hasn’t heard me. He’s too busy staring at my breasts.

Typical man.

I have the sudden urge to punch him in his handsome face.

But I won’t because I’m a professional. I’ll handle this in the best way I know when it comes to dealing with pervy dickheads like him.

“It’s your birthday?” I say sweetly, my smile a little on the flirtatious side.

He grins. “It sure is, and it’s definitely looking up now that you’re here. Are you going to make it extra special for me, sugar?”

He thinks he’s about to get lucky.

Far from it. Smarmy twat.

I tilt my head to the side, keeping the flirty smile on my face, as I walk up to him until there’s very little space between us. I press my fingers to his chest. God, that’s firm. I can feel the ridge of his muscles underneath my fingertips.

He’s tall, too, a good few inches higher than my five-nine. I’d say he’s six-one, which is tall for a driver, but he’s lean. He needs to be to fit into those cars. I bet, under those clothes of his, there’s nothing but toned muscle. Drivers have to be seriously fit, and Carrick Ryan certainly ticks that box on both counts.

Now, I’m imagining him naked. Great. Just fucking great.

I force my focus back to the now. “Well…” I lean in closer to him, hearing him suck in a sharp breath. I lower my voice as I whisper, “If you ever call me sugar again, you won’t see your next birthday. That’s for sure.”

He tilts his head back in amusement. “Feisty. I like it.”

I take a step back, dropping my hand from his chest. “There’s nothing here for you to like.”

His eyes run the length of me, lingering on my legs, the lusty look firing in them again. “I see plenty to like. Jesus…your legs go on forever.”

I wish I had something to hide my legs behind. Instead, I fold my arms to bring his focus up. “I’m not your type.”

Lifting his eyes back to mine, he gives me a confident smile. “Amazing arse. Great stems. Awesome rack. Beautiful face. Yep”—he nods—“you’re definitely my type.”

Synopsis:

Players gotta play.

Hate is like a poison. It contaminates everything.

So does doubt.

Even though I deny what I overheard, even though I insist it isn’t true, the seed of doubt has been planted. I can’t help but be tormented with the endless what-if’s that have taken over our lives.

Romeo and I were happy in love. The future stretched before us brighter than any star in the darkest sky. Now everything is broken. Literally broken. Romeo’s entire career is at stake, my entire future is threatened… and my past?

It’s coming back to haunt me.

To haunt us.

Romeo says we’re in this together and right now the only sure thing is us. But how far can a love so new be pushed? The lengths we will have to go to save each other puts everything at risk.

Romeo is a #player but how much of the game can one person play?

Excerpt from #Player:

by Cambria Hebert

 The azure shade of his eyes caressed me to my soul. I swear he looked at me like no one else ever could. It was like there was nothing else in existence except me. It was like he wasn’t just looking at me, but in me, and I was the most precious thing he’d ever seen.

I got caught up in that gaze. I got caught up in him. My chest felt like it caved in, but not in a disaster sort of way. Like it was sealing in everything he was saying even though no words ever left his tongue.

“How do you do it?” I whispered. My tongue felt thick against the roof of my mouth.

“Do what?” he asked. That look never once left his eyes. If anything, it swept me in tighter.

“How do you look at me like… like I’m everything?”

He made a low sound in the deepest part of his throat. Sort of like a growl, sort of like an agreement. “Because you are.”

“Romeo.” I sighed.

“Rimmel,” he replied. “Don’t forget.”

I started to pull back from the moment, but his fingers tightened on my hip. I looked back up.

“Don’t forget this moment. Don’t forget the absolute truth in the way you feel right now. I love you and I’m not going to stop.”

Emotion welled up in my throat and tears rushed to the backs of my eyes. His words were beautiful, but it was the reason he said them that had me so choked up.

This wasn’t the end.

Beyond this moment, this quiet, whole moment with him, were many more. Many more that weren’t going to be like this one.

We were going to have to keep fighting to keep what was ours.

“I’m not going to stop either,” I whispered.

A smile stretched over his face and lit up his eyes. I leaned closer and sealed my vow with my lips. The rush of heat I always felt when we kissed tingled my toes and they curled into the blankets. I opened my mouth so his tongue could venture inside, and I sighed, so wanting to feel him.

But the moment was cut short.

The door opened and a man with graying hair, a white coat, and a file in his hand stepped in.

“Mr. Anderson,” he said, looking straight at Romeo. It was like he didn’t even notice the intimate bubble Romeo and I occupied. “I have your X-ray results.”

The bubble burst abruptly and reality rushed back in.

Romeo’s dad came in the room, his face concerned as Valerie hovered just outside the doorway staring into the room like it was some forbidden fruit.

I scrambled up to sit on the mattress, ignoring the protests of my sore body. Romeo did the same, moving a little more gingerly.

In the space between us on the mattress, our fingers intertwined.

“How bad is it?” Romeo asked. For once I heard fear in his tone.

I glanced at him.

He glanced at me.

Our moment was over.

The fight started now.

TwoTruthsAndALie
Two Truths and a Lie by Ashley Stoyanoff
(PRG Investigations, #1)
Publication date: February 28th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Synopsis:

One year ago, I became a missing person. I left everything behind—family, friends, school. It seemed like a good idea at the time. My only option, really, until I realized running from a police officer isn’t as easy as I thought it would be.

It’s been exactly three-hundred and sixty-five days since I left home, but I’m finally ready to take the step I should have taken a year ago. I’m done hiding. I’m done running. I’m going to take my life back.

It was supposed to be easy. A meeting with Jason Pierce, a private investigator, was set up for me. All I had to do was go to him, let him do his thing, and then I could go home, or so I thought.

That is, until I met Jason and things got … complicated.

Excerpt:

“Stop,” he shouts, the sound of his shoes hitting the pavement coming faster. “Just stop for a minute.”

Quickening my stride, I keep my eyes on my car, as I rifle through my purse for my keys and call out, “Stop following me.”

Where the hell are my keys? Pushing back a swell of anger-fueled anxiety, I keep searching. My fingertips brush against the metal ring. I clasp onto it, pulling them out, just as a large hand wraps around my bicep and I’m jerked to a halt. I yelp, and stumble, rocking on my heels, and dropping the keys. Another hand settles on my hip, steading me.

Then, I’m pulled around to face Jason. His eyes flicker over my face a few times, doing what looks like a silent assessment, and whatever he sees makes him draw his lips tight and his brow dip in a frown. “Are you okay?”

Am I okay? I laugh. I don’t even know how to answer that question. I probably should be. I know that. I’ve waited a year for this chance, to have someone like him help me, but right now, after the exchange in the bar, with his hand locked around my arm and another on my hip, I don’t feel okay. Not even a little.

“Yes, I’m good,” I stammer, taking a hasty step back, yanking myself free of his grasp. “Everything’s just fine.”

He doesn’t look reassured by my answer. Actually, he looks a little annoyed. He arches a questioning brow and folds his arms over his chest.

I stand there, hesitating, contemplating whether or not I should turn around and run. My car isn’t far. Another twenty, maybe thirty steps. Will he chase me again if I do it?

“Can I go now?” I ask, not ready or wanting to endure another chase.

He shakes his head slowly. “If you want to make a lie believable, you gotta weave it with the truth.”

My brow furrows, confused by the comment. “What?”

“Two truths and a lie, babe,” he says. “Makes the lie harder to pick up on.”

“Okay, fine.” I throw up my hands, exasperated, and sigh, long and loud. “I’m fine, just in a hurry to find a hotel and grab a shower.” I bend down and snag up my keys; then, I meet his eyes. “Better?”

He laughs under his breath, but there is not a stitch of humor in the sound. “Yeah, but I’d rather you didn’t bother with the lie.”

I scoff. “Well, I’d rather you didn’t chase me through a parking lot.”
