DARE TO TEMPT
By Carly Phillips
Release Date: August 4

He’s a smooth talking jock in trouble  
She’s the solution to his problems.  
Love is the last thing they expected to find. 

Damon Prescott had it all. Star quarterback. Money. Fame. Now? He’s being accused of taking performance enhancing drugs and banned from the sport and team he loves.

Determined to prove he’s innocent, he hires tough as nails private investigator, Evie Wolfe. She’s able to bring a man to his knees with a glare, yet sensual in ways that take him off guard – and she’s everything Damon didn’t know he needed.

Evie’s used to men dismissing her, especially playboys like Damon Prescott so she’s not buying the sexual lines he’s trying to sell. She’s with him to do a job, nothing more. But you know what they say about the best laid plans? Sometimes you end up between the sheets with an arrogant football player anyway.

But when the case is over, can Damon convince Evie she’s the only woman for him or will she leave him tied up in love?

For me, this wasn’t my most favorite book sadly. Damon is a pro quarterback that has just been accused of taking performance enhancing drugs which he vehemently denies. All of those that are close to him believe him, but he has to have proof that he didn’t willingly take them. His sister hires her friend Evie who is somewhat of a PI to find out who could have given him the drugs. Evie is hard as steel and has no interest in Damon other then helping prove his innocence.

An idea is presented that Damon and Evie should pretend to be a couple so she can get close to his inner circle to see if she can find any clues. As you can guess, since they pretend to be a couple real feelings start to develop. It was an ok read for me. I didn’t feel much of a connection between these two and the second half of the book was pretty predictable. I would read more in this series but this just wasn’t my favorite one.

Seventh Circle
Violence
Also Known As Ezra Cross

He’s one of a pair.
Identical twin to Damon.
And an enforcer for the Inferno if one is ever needed.

I knew better than to get involved with him.
With his aggression.
With the constant fights.
With the games the twins were known to play with every woman stupid enough to fall for them.

We made a mistake when we met again as adults.
I fell in love.
He fell in love.
His brother fell in love, too.

What used to be a good time is now a tragedy.

Our story is messy.
It’s cruel.
It’s forbidden.

Despite all that, Ezra refuses to let go.

*** Each novel in the series depicts a unique romance, but the plots through each book connect in one world. For the best experience, read the series in order.

Nine Dangerous Men. Nine Unrepentant Sinners. Nine Irresistible Manipulators.

Hood River Zero Front Only

Blurb

Life was nearly stolen from me.
In the blink of an eye, everything changed.
I’m no longer the charismatic, hot playboy Hoodlum.

I’m irrevocably altered.
Damaged both inside and out.

I can’t think. I can’t function. I can’t live.
Not with all this darkness and pain dragging me into unknown depths.
Some days, I wish I never woke up.

But then life takes an unusual turn.
A sweet, sad little girl might be mine.
My dream job is gifted to me.
I have a doctor who cares.
Things are looking up.

Until her.

One mouthy, bratty, mean beautiful young thing complicates everything.
She sees the darkness inside that I’m trying desperately to hide from everyone.
Pokes. Prods. Infuriates.
This girl won’t stop until she’s touched every scar, both inside and out.

I’m not sure how I’m supposed to mentally heal and be a better man when I have the most unapologetic, unpopular mean girl shining her light into every dark crevice inside me.

Annoying. A nuisance. Not worth my time.
I’ll shake her off eventually.
She’s nothing to me.
A Hood River zero.

Try telling my heart that…

******************************************************

Dare I say I freaking loved Penny and Terrence? Well, I do, I do, I doooo!!!! Penny was quite the little badass. Miss independent. Miss sassy and feisty protector. She can take a hit and keep on fighting. Terrence…he definitely grew a lot during this story. From former player with a chip on his shoulder to stable, supportive partner and potential father figure. Loved how each character grew separately AND together. This book had action, suspense, twists, tragedy and darkness. Angst and revenge. And I feel like perhaps I was teased with a little taboo? Pretty please?!?! I’m looking forward to some of the side characters’ stories and I have some thoughts running around in my head. You know who and what I’m talking about. I can not wait for more of this world!

I have been waiting extremely impatiently for this one to come out after we were left with a colossal cliffhanger at the end of Wicked Lairs. I desperately needed to know what happened. Will Jazz survive or will she bleed out alone in the woods before someone finds her? Who attacked her and why? Did Kingston or shit, maybe even Bentley have anything to do with it. Do they genuinely care about her? So. Many. Questions.

“Maybe I’ll feel differently once I’m clear headed, but right now, every person I’ve met since my mom died is a suspect.”

Here I thought nothing could top the first book and then Laura Lee goes and gives us Ruthless Kings. Every single thing about this book was absolutely amazing. Yes,we get some answers to the pile of questions we were left with after the first book. But then we get a whole new shit load of mystery and suspense leading to more questions. It was killing me as more secrets are revealed and Kingston, Bentley and Reed open up to Jazz but things start to make sense. What the hell is wrong with Kingston and Bentley’s creepy, old-ass, nasty fathers. Ugh…they are both pieces of work. I really hope they get what is coming to them. Tons of mystery in this book as they try to find out who attacked Jazz and out their fathers for the horrible shit they are doing while Jazz still doesn’t know who to trust.

“You matter to us. Very few people fall under that umbrella.”

Besides all the mystery, suspense and drama going on there is also a whole lot of insanely hot, super sexy scenes. Like OMG so freaking hot. The chemistry between Jazz and Kingston was off the charts from the get-go but there was a ton of sexual tension between Bentley and Jazz in the first book. Is it wrong that I was hoping the whole time their party of two turned into a party of three permanently? Well, if it’s wrong, I don’t want to be right. I love Jazz and how kick ass she is. She’s one of my favorite characters I have read in a long time. Kingston is super alpha and insanely hot. How can you go wrong with a great combo like that? I love him but then damn, I also love Bentley. We find out some things about all their pasts in this book and oh, my heart hurt for Bentley. We can’t forget quiet Reed who kind of shocked me in this one. We also get introduced to some new characters in this installment that I am hoping we get to see a little more of in the next book.

“I’m sick of being surrounded by all these secrets and lies. I’m fed up with the uncertainty. I know we need to keep playing this game for the greater good, but I need something real too, and you’re the realest fucking thing I’ve ever known.”

That’s all I can say about this book without giving too much away. You just really are going to want to experience it all for yourself! I already know this series will be up there with my favorite read of the year. We are also left with another huge cliffhanger at the end of this one and I can’t wait for the next one to come out!! Loving this series so much!

Ruthless Kings Teaser 2

EXCERPT

I can’t stop thinking about Kingston—the man is a walking contradiction.

Most of the time, he’s broody and mysterious, in a totally sexy way—like catnip for the female population. But when he’s with the guys outside of school, he’s laid back and even goofy sometimes. With Ainsley and me and hell, even Belle, he’s super-protective, and there are these moments where he’s incredibly thoughtful or kind. Regardless of which Kingston you’re getting at the time, there’s always this underlying rage I don’t think many people pick up on. Or maybe they don’t understand the extent of it.

I remember watching a video during my freshman year science class about the Mount St. Helens eruption. The landscape was breathtaking, loved by outdoor enthusiasts, or simply anyone searching for a peaceful place to spend their day. The volcano sat quietly for over one hundred years, all the while, pressure was building beneath the surface. There was sufficient evidence of its impending reawakening, but the reports weren’t taken seriously enough by the general public. Tourists continued flocking to the area—some even evading roadblocks and ignoring air restrictions—until the perfect combination of events caused a cataclysmic explosion. The eruption was so powerful, it literally blew the top off the mountain, killing everyone in the vicinity.

Kingston reminds me of that volcano. If you don’t look beyond his surface beauty, if you ignore the warning signs, you’re putting yourself at risk. He’s dangerous—perhaps even deadly—and I’d be a fool to forget that.

ABOUT LAURA LEE

Laura Lee is the USA Today bestselling author of steamy and sometimes ridiculously funny romance. She won her first writing contest at the ripe old age of nine, earning a trip to the state capital to showcase her manuscript. Thankfully for her, those early works will never see the light of day again!

Laura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her wonderful husband, two beautiful children, and three of the most poorly behaved cats in existence. She likes her fruit smoothies filled with rum, her cupboards stocked with Cadbury’s chocolate, and her music turned up loud. When she’s not writing or watching HGTV, she’s reading anything she can get her hands on. She’s a sucker for spicy romances, especially those that make her laugh.

Can you keep a secret?

I grew up sick.

Let me clarify.

I grew up believing that real love stories include a martyr or demand great sacrifice to be worthy.

Because of that, I believed it, because I made myself believe it, and I bred the most masochistic of romantic hearts, which resulted in my illness.

When I lived this story, my own twisted fairy tale, it was unbeknownst to me at the time because I was young and naïve. I gave into temptation and fed the beating beast, which grew thirstier with every slash, every strike, every blow.

Triple Falls wasn’t at all what it seemed, nor were the men that swept me under their wing. But in order to keep them, I had to be in on their secrets.

Secrets that cost us everything to keep.

That’s the novelty of fiction versus reality. You can’t re-live your own love story, because by the time you’ve realized you’re living it, it’s over. At least that was the case for me and the men I trusted my foolish heart to.

Looking back, I’m convinced I willed my story into existence due to my illness.

And all were punished.⁣⁣
