From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel. 

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him. Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions. I didn’t think he’d call me back. I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become. Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets. Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake. 
 A complete STANDALONE.

Only His by Madison Rose • FMR REVIEW


BLURB: 

I had no idea he was a sought after movie star and one of the most eligible bachelors in the world. I thought he was only mine, until one picture turned my life upside down.

She can fight it all she wants, but I knew the moment we met that she'd be mine, and I'm never giving her up. 


I tried to deny it, but in the end I know I'm Only His.

Review by: Gina 

This book may be a quicky but it is one of the best quickies I've ever had! This book is super hot, insta love, alpha male who will make you all tingly but also the surprise was the suspense! It wasn't something I was expecting but I loved it! It gave the book so much more. And for being a quick novella it added depth to the story. I thought the writing was good. The story was great! I hope we get more from this writing duo!

Chasing Destiny by Megan Erickson • FMR REVIEW


BLURB: 

Some live on memories…

Almost dying during a pack uprising has a way of shaking things up. I’m no longer Mr. Laid Back now that there’s an itch under my skin I can’t scratch.

On a volunteer mission that goes beyond the walls of our compound, we enter the territory of a pack long thought dead, and find ourselves on the business end of their spears.

What I’m not prepared for is what I find within their walls—The one shifter I never thought I’d see alive, the one I’d mourned twice, the one I’d always loved. He is alive, and if I have anything to do with it, he’ll stay that way. But he’s got secrets, and exposing them could lead us to an enemy worse than the bloodthirsty undead shifters wanting to kill us all.

Review by: Erin 

I loved the first book in this series, but this book blew my mind! There was plenty of drama, plot twists, and passion to keep me hooked and on the edge of my seat. I thought that nothing could be hotter than Dare and Reese, but Bay and Nash blew them out of the water. The storyline was incredible and flowed seamlessly. There is so much going on in these shifters lives. The emotion just pours off the pages and you can't help but to feel every bit of it! There are several character additions and hints at things to come. I hope they all get their own stories (hint hint). A definite must read for anyone who loves shifters and m/m books. These two will have you needing fresh undies!

Seducing Lola by Jessica Prince • BLOG TOUR & REVIEW

SBPRBanner-Seducing-Lola-BT


Seducing Lola by Jessica Prince Publication Date: July 18th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance

Seducing Lola, an all-new romantic standalone from Jessica Prince is available NOW!!

Seducing Lola front cover high res

BLURB: 

I’ve had my fair share of bad relationships. I’ve dated liars, cheaters, shoe fetishists, and everything in between. Sure, these experiences would make any woman cynical when it comes to dipping her toe back into the dating pool, but I used my past for good and made a career out of helping other women avoid going down the same paths I had.
And I was damn good at it.
Until a random act of fate set my life on a course I’d been avoiding for years, and put me in the crosshairs of a man that made me feel things I swore to never feel again.
Now I’m in his sights and it seems like he’ll stop at nothing to seduce the hell out of me. He might hold my career in the palm of his hands, but if Grayson Lockhart thinks he can blackmail me into submission with his sexy voice and sexy hands and sexy everything, then he’s…probably right.

Excerpt:

Prologue

If you’d have asked my twenty-year-old self what I saw in my future ten years down the road, I probably would’ve answered the same way as every other na├»ve co-ed living the college dream on Sorority Row. I’d be married to the love of my life, raising our two perfect children in the suburbs—because the city is no place to bring up a family, obviously—and driving a top-of-the-line SUV that all the minivan moms would envy because I had way too much style to ever be caught dead driving a minivan. Clearly, my twenty-year-old self was an idiot. It was she who forgave—then was subsequently dumped by—my college sweetheart after finding him pile-driving my sorority sister from behind on the handmade quilt I’d spent countless hours creating out of his old high school football T-shirts as a birthday present. His brilliant excuse? “You’re just not adventurous enough, Lola. She’s willing to try things in bed that you aren’t.” Apparently refusing to allow him to film us having sex and entering it into a contest on a porn site was just too vanilla for him. Last I heard, he was making a killing on the amateur scene. Unfortunately, my twenty-one and twenty-two-year-old selves weren’t all that smart either. It was my twenty-one-year-old self who discovered I’d unwittingly been made a beard by Brad, the guy I had dated for six months, because his evangelical parents just “wouldn’t understand.” BTW, Brad and Phillip’s wedding was a really lovely affair. He asked me to stand as his best woman—since he considered our relationship the reason he finally made his way out of the closet—but I turned down the honor, choosing instead to get annihilated on mojitos at the open bar. My twenty-two-year-old self thought I had finally found a decent guy. That was until I came home to find him doing something I’ll never be able to unsee to a pair of Louboutins I’d spent the better part of a year saving up for. The saddest part? I hadn’t even had a chance to wear them before his defilement. I didn’t have the heart to throw them in the trash, so I let him take them with him when I kicked his ass out. I should’ve known better, honestly. It wasn’t like I’d grown up in a home with my very own personal June and Ward Cleaver. Oh no, my parents split when I was only six years old. And it was anything but amicable. My mom never kept her hatred for my father secret. And dear old Dad never hid the string of women he kept on tap, one for whatever mood he may’ve been in. It was shocking that I hadn’t grown bitter at an even younger age, having to deal with their drama, but I was in my early twenties and still a believer in happily ever afters. Like I said, I was an idiot. Now I know what you’re thinking. After three miserable failures, I was probably a jaded cynic who was convinced true love didn’t exist. Well, you’d only be half right. See, I believed in love, sure… as long as it was happening to anyone other than me. I’d been the fateful target of that bastard Cupid’s stupid-ass arrow three times already; I had no desire to go for a fourth. I wasn’t anti-relationship when it came to other people. To each their own and all that jazz. And I didn’t hate men. I just didn’t believe they were of any use to me for anything other than a few hours of fun that eventually led to a—hopeful—mutual release before I sent them on their way. I learned from my mistakes, grown wise as the years passed. I knew exactly what I wanted out of my life, and believe me, there wasn’t a shitty picket fence in sight. If the suburbs were for families, then the city was exactly where I was meant to be. I was a successful, accomplished thirty-two-year-old woman who’d gotten where I was in life by hard work, perseverance, and the cluelessness of women all around the world. My name was known in households all throughout Washington State. I, along with my two best friends, hosted Seattle’s most successful female-based talk radio show, aptly titled Girl Talk. I’d managed to make more money in the past ten years by offering relationship advice to helpless women than I’d ever know what to do with. It was safe to say the rose-colored glasses were off. I lived in the real world where men cheated and women drowned their sorrows in vats of Ben & Jerry’s. Sure, I wasn’t living the future I saw for myself when I was twenty, but then again, at twenty, I still thought Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were meant to be, that Wedding Crashers was cinematic brilliance, and that the whole Tom Cruise/Oprah couch jumping “I’m in love with Katie Holmes” thing was actually romantic. What the hell did I know back then? A lot had changed over the years. And as I gazed out the floor-to-ceiling windows of my penthouse apartment, overlooking the Puget Sound, I could honestly say without a shred of doubt that I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Review by: Gina

The book is full of laughs, sass, and a very swoonworthy Grayson!!! 

I am a huge fan of romcom and right from the beginning this book had me hooked! The set up to this story was perfect! And as the story went on everything flowed and fit together...amazing!

Let's talk about Lola...I've never loved a character as much as her! She is a character to admire. Her confidence was off the charts! There were several moments when she did embarrass herself, but she held her head up high and owned it. I loved Grayson persistence with her perusal of Lola. She wanted to and tried really hard to keep him at arm's length but that didn't work. And let me just say that I adored the secondary characters! I really hope we get to see more of them in the future!

Overall, I loved this book! The story was so funny but sweet, full of sass and had some steam to it as well. I thought the story line was a lot of fun to read. The writing was excellent and I am looking forward to reading more from this author.

About the Author:

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That's why God created central air, after all. Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy--she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says. In addition to being a wife and mom, she's also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books--romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it's a passion...there's a difference. Not that she'd expect a boy to understand. Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

Swink by Adriana Locke • RELEASE & REVEIW BLITZ

Title: Swink
Author: Adriana Locke
Release Date: July 21st
Notes: Available in KINDLE UNLIMITED

A standalone bad boy / good girl romance





Synopsis:

I’m that guy.



Camilla Landry rustles against me, the silky fabric of her overpriced lingerie slipping along my bruised rib. The porcelain perfection of her skin is even more innocent against the colorful ink dotting my own. It’s demure meets damaged, pampered meets punctured. 

So, yeah, it’s obvious I’m that guy. Dominic Hughes. Her attempt at rebellion. Her bid to see what the other side of the tracks feel like. I’m okay with being used because, from where I’m sitting, the other side of the tracks have never looked so good.

ALSO AVAILABLE IN THE LANDRY FAMILY SERIES 
(all free in Kindle Unlimited and standalone novels)


#1 Sway – sexy politican and a single mother

#2 Swing – sizzling professional baseball player meets his match

#3 Switch – hot office romance

#4 Swear – an ex-military man won’t lose the love of his life twice



Review by: Flavia 

Wow, and again I say Wow. This author and this series, just gets better with each one.

Camilla Landry is the baby of the clan, she was born a couple of minutes after her twin sister. And because she is the youngest of 6 children her older siblings are guys and just a little over protective. That is maybe why Camilla has been hiding her relationship with Dominic Hughes. Her family just wouldn't understand what she sees in him.

Dominic was attracted to Camilla from the minute he saw her when he showed up to fix her aircon, and even though he knows that they are not the happily ever after couple he can't stop seeing her. Maybe because he grew up on the other side of town and doesn't have anything in common with her rich family could also have something to do with it. How will they accept someone like him who fights and works just to keep a roof over his head and food on his table.

But Dominic didn't count on the chemistry and attraction that he would feel with Camilla and maybe he like her family under estimated Swink. So how will they get over their differences of their backgrounds and how will Dominic cope with her over protective brothers. 

I loved Dominic and Camilla together. Their chemistry and passion were off the hook HOT. And even though they had their doubts about their relationship working, they couldn't stay away from each other. Awesome story and loved how even though this story is about one sibling you still get to check in with the rest of the Landry clan.

Book Trailer:






Excerpt:

“If I didn’t have to get up so damn early in the morning and head up north for a job, I’d be on my way over,” he promises.
“What would you do when you got here?”
It’s a loaded question, one that will only make it harder that he’s not here tonight. Not that he would be here all night anyway. He doesn’t sleep here. He won’t. He’ll come over, but I always wake up in my bed alone.
“I’d hope you’d be wearing that yellow silk robe that isn’t long enough to cover your ass,” he says, a grit to his voice that’s as smooth as it is rough. It reminds me of his hands—soft enough to caress, yet coarse enough to cause my body to fire on all cylinders. “I’d find you standing in the kitchen, watching porn on your phone.”
“No, you wouldn’t!” I giggle. “I don’t watch porn on my phone.”
“This is my little fantasy,” he teases. “Don’t interrupt.”
“Fine. Continue on,” I say, propping one leg up on a neighboring chair.
“I’d walk in behind you and almost lose it when I see you with your hand between your legs. Your head would fall back just a little as you moan like you do when you’re turned on. I’d wrap your hair, still wet from a shower, around my fist and tug your head back just a little more so I can bury my face in the crook of your neck.”
The whimper that passes my lips isn’t intentional, but I couldn’t deny it if I wanted to. The thought of his hands on my skin, his breath against my cheek, his cock rock hard and long against the small of my back, has me shifting in my seat.
Lifting the hem of my floral-print dress, I move aside the lace of my panties and feel the heat and wetness radiating from between my legs.  
“I’d kiss you right behind the ear just so I could feel you shiver against me,” he breathes. “Smelling your vanilla perfume mixed with the scent of you all turned on would make me so fucking hard.”
“And me so wet,” I whisper.
“I lay my hand over yours,” he continues, “my fingers holding yours in place. You breathe in, the top of your robe falling open so I can see those big, round titties swollen for me, wanting my mouth on them.”
“God, Dom,” I groan, spreading my legs a little wider. Flicking at my engorged clit, the sensation makes me gush a breath of pure need.
“What are you doing right now?” he whispers.
“Ah,” is my response as I roll the nub with my thumb, my eyes squeezed closed imagining it is Dominic’s hand on me and not mine.
“Are you touching yourself, Camilla?”
“Yes.”
“Fuck,” he hisses. “Do you wish it were me?”
“Yes.”
“I’d shove your robe up, bend you over the table, and bury myself inside you so deep you almost can’t take it. Would you like that?”
“Yes,” I almost moan. My back is now arched, my breathing heavy and panting, as I replay two days ago when his words tonight were almost a play-for-play.
“I love the way you squeeze around me. Your little pussy almost milks my cock, begs for it. Do you know that?”
My eyelids squeeze together harder, almost painfully hard, as I touch myself in just the right way. The burn begins low in my stomach, the rumble getting louder with each and every movement of my hand.
The lace of my panties causes friction against the back of my palm, just another bit of sensation that sends me on a spiral higher and higher.
“Think of how good it feels when I hit that spot in the back of your pussy,” he coaxes. “The way you let loose. How your legs shake as you flood my cock with so much fucking juice that it almost shoves me out of you.”
“Dom,” I utter through clenched teeth as the tremors of my orgasm start to hit me full-on.
“You coming, baby? You coming thinking of me buried inside you?”
Yessssss.”
My body hums at the imagery he’s painted for me, the thought of him doing all of those things sending me on a high that could only be topped if it were him doing them.
Sucking in a breath, I hear him follow suit, as I whimper at the aftershocks of my climax. My legs relax, the riot in my stomach eases, as I let my head fall back with a contented, satisfied sigh.

Loving Kyle by Kasey Millstead • RELEASE & REVEIW BLITZ



Title: Loving Kyle
Author: Kasey Millstead
Genre: Military Romance
Release Date: July 20, 2017



Blurb

The tough times don’t define you.  It’s how you respond to them that does.

Liv
Six years ago, my world was turned upside down with the ring of my phone and a gravelly voice on the other end.  For months afterward, I felt like I surely wouldn’t make it through another day.   Then my daughter was born.  A bundle of joy, bright enough to light my dreary days, with a glow that warmed my aching heart.   I’ve lived for her ever since.
As I stand here, staring at the man who looks so much like him, but is still so different, I find myself contemplating living for me, just for a little while…

Kyle
Honorably discharged from the army after five tours to Afghanistan, I’m back in my home town and working as a Basic Combat Training instructor.
Falling in love with Liv was never part of the plan, but as time goes by and wounds are healed, the wall erected between us slowly starts to crumble.  But Liv isn’t the type to give in easily.  Then I remember I’m an American soldier.
I will never accept defeat.  I will never quit.
It’s time she realized she’s mine.

“Deep down, I know two things for sure.  One, my heart, head and gut all direct me to Kyle.  Two, I’m going to continue ignoring them.”

Review by: Leeann 

What a refreshing storyline to read in today’s market. This is a story about moving on, being open to the possibility of new love
and accepting change into your life. 
Olivia was young when one day her life changed forever. It was a no going back kind of change. But, she has made the most of her life
and can honestly say she is happy & has no regrets. 

Kyle was also affected the day Liv’s life changed and has always played a pivitol part in her life up until now. Now things are going to change again.
What I really love is that once these characters make any decisions they run with it & see it through. There is no half baked effort involved at all.

Kyle & Liv are obviously the main characters but there Is a support character, Celia, who I feel is just as much of an important part of the story.
She is Kyles Aunt but really is almost more like a mother figure to both Kyle & Liv. She really is the one person who’s opinion matters to them both.

This is one of those books that can make you cry but also make you laugh just as fast. It seriously has all the feels as well as that feel good vibe to it.
The sex scenes are off the charts and the entire story flows effortlessly. Kyle and Liv’s love is new enough to survive the times but timeless enough to
whether the changes. Theirs is really the love of a lifetime.
The feelings are real, the emotion if real and the journey is unforgettable.

I absolutely adored this latest release by Kasey Millstead. She has shown she has both the talent and the diversity to bring us a love story that is not only
very different to her other works but is also something a bit different to everything else on the market at the moment. It is what makes this book a standout
of 2017 for me.
Love Love Loved it!!

Review by: Erin 

So many tears. So much emotion. Kyle and Liv left me a wreck after finishing their story. I can not even begin to imagine what kind of hell these characters have been through. Not only that, they also denied themselves from acting on their attraction to each other. I often place myself in the characters places as I read their stories. I feel a deeper connection to the characters and the stories seem more real and emotional. This story rocked my world on its axis. I loved every minute of this emotional journey and recommend everyone read this book!
