JARED

If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat…

The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.

Her anger is…arousing.

Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth,

gets me…well, you know.

If I had a dollar for every time she’s put me in my place, I’d be an even richer man.

I’m a successful sports agent because I assume “no” means you’ll think about it.

I’m sure what you meant to say is “Coming right up.”

They say even rich men don’t always get what they want,

but those men don’t know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.

Take Banner. She assumes she’s winning, but this game?

She doesn’t even know how to play.

BANNER

If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.

One night. One epic fail. One dollar…and I’m out.

I’ve moved on.

I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.

Anything they can do, I have done better.

They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.

And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?

Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.

I’ll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.

Oh, I didn’t say the struggle wasn’t real.

But I’ve got that one dollar, and Jared won’t have me.

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Amazing book. Amazing author. Amazing series! Since reading the very first page, I have been unable to get Jared and Banner out of my head. This story consumed me!

Jared and Banner are soulmates but they went their separate ways due to a misunderstanding. Banner has big dreams, ambitions and goals that require all her focus. She knows what she is capable of, she is determined, passionate about her job of sport agent and not afraid to want it all. Professionally, Jared is her adversary. He is the golden boy of sports management and owns a fast growing agency. Banner has a boyfriend and things get complicated when Jared comes back into her life. He is ruthless, single-minded and refuses to take no for an answer.

The book was so good at relaying her feelings, the guilt just at having these feelings, the questions she was having regarding her own relationship, and the attraction between her and Jared.
Her life is suddenly thrown totally off its axis by her attraction to him. It takes every ounce of effort just to withstand the pull between her and Jared. She tries to push him away but their draw is palpable, undeniable. The emotions and dilemmas felt by Jared and Banner in this story were portrayed perfectly by the author. The knowledge that she has cheated fills Banner with extreme guilt. Her boyfriend, Alonzo, is an exceptional and wonderful hero.

Jared is not the good guy in this story, he’s just the right guy. Banner and Jared’s story deals with some intense issues but it is so worth the emotional journey it takes you on. My emotions were really all over the place. While at times this was a tough read, I think this just might be my favorite love triangle story ever!

Many thanks to the author and Social Butterfly PR for my copy of this book!

Excerpt:

I stretch my arm toward the wall and turn out the lights.

With the light snuffed out, my other senses rise, hunting for her in the dark. The smell of her hair and her quick, shallow breaths. My sight adjusts until the heavy black curtain completely obscuring her fades to gray. Light from the outer room spills under the door, revealing just the shape, the outline of her, but still camouflaging details. I cup her cheek, taking a moment to appreciate the softness of her skin, the silky hair brushing my knuckles. I’m not an idiot. She wants the lights out because she’s self-conscious, but from my perspective, she has nothing to be ashamed of.

“I think you’re beautiful, Ban.”

“You do?” she asks, her voice hushed.

My words surprise me as much as they seem to surprise her, because I don’t say shit like that to girls. The prettiest ones usually seem to already know, which makes any admiration I’d express redundant. But Banner . . . she’s so beautiful, and I’m not sure she knows.

“I do.” I push the hair away from her face.

“Uh . . . thank you.” Her laugh isn’t much more than a breath. “The lights are out, so I’m not sure that compliment counts.”

“I know your face by heart. You have seven freckles here.” I swipe a finger over the straight bridge of her nose and drift down to caress her full lips and the tiny dent in her cheek her smile displays. “And a dimple right here.”

I explore the smooth skin of her nape, under a heavy fall of hair.

“Now I want to know your body, too,” I say softly. “Take off your clothes for me, Banner.”

After a sharply indrawn breath, she raises her arms. The rustle of her clothes—the sweatshirt, jeans, socks, shoes—being discarded whisper in the dark. I approximate her by touch, reaching for her arms and closing my fingers around the softness, the velvety skin. I lower my head and run my nose along her neck, discovering.

“You always smell so good.” I’ve wanted to tell her that since the first night we studied here.

“Pretty Pastel,” she replies, her laugh low, nervous.

“What?” I pause.

“The smell. It’s my dryer sheets. The scent is Pretty Pastel.”

“I like it.” I resume my exploration, running a palm over her shoulder, her collarbone until I find the soft, full weight of her breasts, testing them in my hands, cupping them, holding them, brushing the nipples with my thumbs until they pebble and her breaths come harshly.

“You like that?” I ask.

I see her head nod in the semi-darkness. “Yeah. It feels good.”

Her touch startles me in the best way, her hand finding my face, traveling over my mouth, eyes, and hair. I sense her approach, feel tiny pants of breath on my lips, and anticipation has me panting, too, shortens my breath and sharpens my senses. Her mouth seeks mine, eager and sweet when she kisses me. Her pleasure, her excitement matches, answers, fans mine.

I guide her back down to the couch, and with a hand at her shoulder, urge her to stretch out. I’d shave points off my GPA for a glimpse of her, but she doesn’t want that. I get it, so I settle for a taste.

Dirty Headlines by L.J. Shen : Blog Tour

DH_BLOG TOUR.jpg

“Dirty Headlines is a fantastic enemies to lovers office romance with a perfect filthy asshole hero that I wish I’d written myself.” – Laurelin Paige, New York Times bestselling author

Dirty Headlines, an all-new sexy, enemies-to-lovers romance from bestselling author L.J. Shen is available NOW!

LJSDirtyHeadlinesBookCover6x9_BW_324

Célian Laurent.

Manhattan royalty.

Notorious playboy.

Heir to a media empire.

…And my new boss.

I could have impressed him, if not for last month’s unforgettable one-night stand.

I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory—namely, his wallet.

Now he’s staring me down like I’m the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I’m supposed to take it.

But the thing about being Judith “Jude” Humphry is I have nothing to lose.

Brooklyn girl.

Infamously quirky.

Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.

When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals.

He knows it.

So do I.

Every day in the newsroom is a battle.

Every night in his bed, war.

But it’s my heart at stake, and I fear I’ll be raising the white flag.

DH 6 heartbreakingly beautiful.jpg

Excerpt:

He had an American accent. Not French. American. Smooth. Familiar. Ordinary. He fired out sentences at the speed of light. I heard him, but I couldn’t listen. Shock gripped my body as the pieces of the puzzle fell into place. My dirty one-night stand was my boss. My lying, American boss. And now I had to deal with that—hopefully for a very long time, because I desperately needed this job.

Someone snapped their fingers, and my gaze shot from Célian’s face to Grayson.

His forehead had crumpled into a frown. “You look like you’re trying hard not to cry or having a really intense orgasm. I’m hoping for you that it’s the latter and some kind of a weird-slash-awesome condition. You okay?”

I nodded, scraping up a smile. “Sorry. Zero orgasms happening under this dress. I just zoned out for a second.”Lies. I was about to orgasm just remembering how good Célianhad felt parting my thighs with his big, callused hands and dipping his tongue into my slit.

Then words stopped streaming down on everyone’s heads like a scalding shower, and I realized that indeed there was something worse than hearing Célianspeak in his perfect American English. And that was not hearing him speak at all. Because now the icicles were pointed at me like a cocked gun.

I glanced up to meet his gaze. He stared at me for exactly one second before his focus snapped to Grayson. “Am I understood, Gregory?” he asked.

Gregory?

“Crystal clear, sir,” Grayson bowed, his voice trembling at the edges.

Célian jerked his chin toward me. “Your cover girl material is going downhill.”

God. Damn. Bastard.

He recognized me, and I knew it. His eyes had kindled, melting the ice and growing darker the minute our gazes mingled. He remembered, and maybe it killed him that I was here in the same way it buried me.

I want my iPod back, my gaze told him. I had over three thousand songs on that thing, and they were all too good to be wasted on that jerk.

“Jude Humphry. Junior reporter. It’s her first day,” Grayson highlighted, almost pleadingly. He shifted in my direction, as if he might need to physically protect me from the sharp-tongued, suited monster.

I suppressed a smile when I realized I’d told Célianmy last name was Spears. Well, he certainly wasn’t a Timberlake. He was a Laurent. An American monarch through and through. A billionaire, a powerful force, and judging by our one and only encounter—a raging playboy.

This man was inside you, I internally shrieked. And not just once. His cock was buried so deep in you, you screamed. You can still taste the salty, earthy flavor of his cum.You know he has a freckle on his lower back. You know what sound he makes when he empties inside a woman.

I internally thanked my mind for ruining my panties in public, and nodded. “Pleasure to meet you, sir.” I offered him my hand, my face flushing with embarrassment at my choice of words.

Everyone was looking at us, and there were at least fifty people in the room. Célian—if that was even his name—ignored my outreached hand. Instead, he turned his face to the man beside him. “Mathias, any other words of wisdom?”

Mathias? Wasn’t that his father? Just how cold was the man with the icy blue eyes?

“I think you touched everything,” said the big boss—and he did have a heavy French accent, so at least the lie had a seed. Mathias stared at me placidly, like he could read the secret his son and I shared on my face.

Célian spun toward me, uncuffing his cufflinks and rolling his sleeves up his veiny forearms. “Accounting can go back to their unfortunate line of work. Couture is excused from this meeting—though not forgiven for their horrid blog. Miss Humphry?” He snapped his fingers impatiently.

He was already waltzing down the narrow hallway, knowing I’d chase him like a puppy, and no doubt taking pleasure in that fact.

“I have a bone to pick with you.”

Bone, boner—same difference, right?

I shot Grayson a please-save-my-butt look. His eyes said, I would but I still have a life to live.

I followed Célian down the hall, my Chucks slapping the floor in a hurry. He sliced through the throng of accountants, then stopped at a corner office, opened the door, barked “Out!” to the man inside, and tilted his head for me to go in. I did. He closed the door, and it was just the two of us.

Two feet of empty space between us.

Audible: http://smarturl.it/MOYAudio2

A message from A.L. Jackson :

“The first stand-alone novel in my new CONFESSIONS OF THE HEART series. Oh my gosh, I have to confess, MORE OF YOU absolutely stole my heart.

Writing Jace and Faith’s story was one of my best experiences as an author. Their story poured out of me, their chemistry so intense and palpable that the words burned inside and came to life in a way I’d never imagined!

It’s intense.

It’s sexy.

It’s suspenseful.

It’s packed with all the feels.

It’s everything and more that I’d hoped it be.

I fell so hard for MORE OF YOU, and I know you will, too.

Are you ready for my newest romance?”

Insta Story 2

My daddy warned me never to fall for a boy like Jace Jacobs . . .

The second I saw him walk through the door, I knew he was trouble.

A gorgeous rebel with a bad attitude and a huge chip on his shoulder.

My heart warned me. I didn’t listen. I saw something protective and good beneath the fierce, tough exterior.

I fell hard and fast.

He promised we’d be together forever, and then left me with a broken heart.

Now, ten years later, Jace Jacobs is standing at my door.

Sexier than he’s ever been.

Provocative and commanding.

Successful and powerful.

The man I always knew he would become.

But I promised myself I’d never lose my heart to him again.

Even time couldn’t dim our chemistry. One glance of his intense eyes, and I become weak. One brush of his hand, and he brings me to my knees.

Little do I know, Jace holds the key to everything I’ve lost and everything that threatens my future.

Now he will either save me, or he will break me all over again . . .

My Review

Rating : 4.5 Stars

This story is told in dual point of view, with timeline jumps to the past and then back into present day. Each segment of this emotionally gripping story was a buildup. The way the author worked in the angst was brilliant. Nothing is told or forced, everything is felt. I loved that this story just flowed so perfectly. It is not a dark read, but don’t mistake that for lack of emotion or tension. This story definitely brought out the emotions in me. This book was long, but it didn’t feel long, the story hooked me in pretty quickly.

Jace Jacobs was a troubled and mysterious boy, the town outcast and Faith’s first love until he walked out of her life. Fast forward 10 years, Jace is very different from the boy he was, he is polished and has built a business empire from the ground up. He has dealt with the circumstances he was placed in as best he could. Faith made him strive to be better and change his life. She used to always see the good in him, but now she doesn’t trust him anymore. Faith is Jace’s only weakness, he can’t stay away from her. As she is threatened and trying to get through tough times in her life, he is willing to make sacrifices to protect her and her daughter.

These characters are easy to love and attach yourself to. You want Jace and Faith to find happiness. When their journey finally unfolds, you feel immensely satisfied as a reader to have reached their happy ending. It takes a while, a past full of tears and regret, deception and many mistakes to get there, but in the end it seems everything is just how it should be.

Many thanks to the author for my copy of this wonderful book!

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Eliza Cross is an heiress but not a lady. She is the daughter of a Cit and is considered a nouveau riche upstart by London society. Hugh Deveraux’s father has squandered the family’s fortune. He has tried to keep up appearances, but urgently needs to boost his gambling luck or find a wealthy bride. He is left with limited choices when he discovers that the bulk of his debts are held by Eliza’s father and he is blackmailed into courting and marrying her.

I really liked Hugh as a hero, he is a flawed character that grows with the story. Despite his forced deception, he warms up to Eliza quickly and comes to care for her far before he even admits it to himself.

I loved Eliza. She was such a sweet, warm and decent person, a strong woman battling with her insecurities. She’s one of those characters that you can’t help but love. And soon, Hugh falls for the genuine, loving person she is. He forgets he pursued her because of her father’s manipulation and doesn’t pretend the affection he feels for Eliza. I liked how he showed her in many ways how much she meant to him.

As I read this story, I hoped that Eliza could get past the lies that Hugh had told, and understand why he did it. I wanted the burgeoning love between them to be enough to make their marriage bond unbreakable.

Caroline Linden did a wonderful job with the characters driving this story. Their relationship was complex and engrossing while the deepening of their feelings proceeded at a reasonable and smooth pace. Their story captured me from the first to the very last page.

This romance touched me and, for a while, the author transported me to another time and place and I didn’t want to come back. I loved this book! It is the second installment in the Wagers of Sin series, about three childhood friends, but can be read as a standalone.

Many thanks to the publisher and Pure Textuality for my copy of this book!

Teaser Graphic 5 - An Earl Like You by Caroline Linden

Excerpt

He kissed as if he meant to conquer her . . .

Eliza could only stare back. He’d kissed her until her brain melted and her tongue turned to lead. Good heavens, she wished he’d do it again.

“Eliza—”

He stopped and cleared his throat. “Miss Cross, that went further than I planned,” he finally said, his voice very low and still rough with want.

His hands drifted to rest on her hips. He put his mouth next to her ear. “Should I apologize for what happened?”

The tiniest shake of her head.

His lips touched the sensitive skin behind her ear. “May I call on you?”

“Yes,” she whispered.

Eliza gazed up at him, wondering if he could tell from looking at her that she was about to fall headlong in love . . .

Timid (Lark Cove series #2) by Devney Perry : Blog Tour

Willa Doon has always been shy. Her quiet demeanor was something she’s always embraced. That is, until Jackson Page moves to town. The one man she desperately wants to take notice struggles to remember her name.

Year after year, Willa stands by, watching as the bartender slash playboy drowns his demons in beer and sex. Then one night, he shows up at her door, suddenly aware that the girl he’s seen around Lark Cove is now a beautiful woman.

Except what he doesn’t remember is that this visit isn’t his first. They spent a night together once before. A night he’s forgotten, thanks to a bottle of tequila.

A night that crushed a timid girl’s heart, and set a broken man on the path to heal them both.

My Review

Rating : 4.5 Beautiful Stars

This story is beautifully told. It is heartwarming and heartbreaking, filled with angst and love. This is an emotional read, Devney Perry draws you into her story with flawless writing and you can’t help but be swept away with her words. Her writing possesses a refreshing uniqueness that I really enjoy.

We met Jackson Page in Tattered. This sexy bartender didn’t have a happy childhood but things worked out for the best when he met Thea and Hazel and they moved from New York to Lark Cove to build a new life. They are his family of the heart, his only real family. There is a deep affection between them and he was very protective of Thea when Logan Kendrick re-entered her life.

Willa Doon is an endearing heroine. She has tried to get Jackson’s attention for years, he was her high school crush but he never seemed to notice her. Jackson spends some time denying his attraction to Willa, he is guarded and tends to bottle things up. Eventually, she decides to move on, only to have him figure out how much he wants a relationship with her. The connection between the two is beautiful, their blossoming romance is a slow build up, they fit seamlessly into each other’s life. Jackson doesn’t trust easily though, he expects people to abandon him. But Willa wants to be by his side, be the person who will always choose him first.

“Timid” is the story of finding the missing piece to one’s life, of finding the courage to take a chance on love. Many of the secondary characters are richly written and we get to follow Thea and Logan from “Tattered” in their happily ever after. I’m definitely looking forward to the sequel “Tragic”. Although this book could be read as a standalone, it is best to read this beautiful series in order, to follow with the plot and the main characters. Highly recommended!

Many thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for my copy of this book!

I scooched my chair in toward the table, trying to put a little more space between Jackson and me, but he wasn’t having it.

He put both hands on the back of my chair, then leaned in close. “Hi, Willa.”

“Uh . . . hi.” I shivered at the heat from his chest on my bare shoulders.

Why was he standing so close? My parents were right there. Our table was one of four tall, square ones in the center of the room and there was plenty of space between tables.

Plenty. P-L-E-N-T-Y.

But was Jackson using any of that plentiful space?

No sirree. He stayed pressed against the back of my chair, like there were only three inches of usable space behind him, not three feet.

My skin prickled he was so close. I tried to nudge my chair forward again but it barely moved. Sweat beaded on my temples and I pulled in a shaking breath.

Jackson’s woodsy, rich scent was everywhere. It overpowered the stale beer, pizza and peanuts, and I inhaled a deep breath, unable to resist.

Life lesson number one… If you find the love of your life, fight for
him.
Life lesson number two… If you’re dumb enough to let the love of
your life go, don’t let years pass without trying to get him back.
Life lesson number three… If he does come
back, don’t help him take over your father’s multi-million-dollar company…even
if your father had it coming.
I fell in love, had it all, and lost it all in the blink of an eye. I
was young, naïve, and not in control of my own life. I was resigned to the fact
that I would never see Sam again. So when I attended a meeting with the unknown
buyer initiating a hostile takeover of my father’s company, I was stunned and
horrified to come face to face with Sam. Only this wasn’t the Sam that I
remembered. Gone was the sweet, romantic, kind boy I loved, and in his place
was a cold, ruthless, and calculating man. Maybe I was right. Maybe I would never
see my Sam again… or would I?
