Wicked Flame by Ella Frank ~ Blog Tour w/ 4.5 Star Review!

He’s ready to steal his heart and never give it back.

Wicked Flame, a sizzling MM romance and the hot conclusion to the Chicago Heat Duet from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank, is out now!

Jameson

Life is hard. I learned that at an early age growing up on the South Side of Chicago. I accepted it, even came to expect it. With a sister who was a constant source of worry, and a track record of losing anyone even remotely close to me, trouble seemed to follow me no matter where I turned.

Some people were born lucky. I was just born.

That’s what I used to believe, anyway, until GQ. The gorgeous guy in the fancy clothes who for some reason decided to look twice at me. He gave me a place to call my own, a space to feel safe, and he made me believe in the impossible—that love was more than just a four-letter word.

Ryan

Life is unexpected. I learned that just recently when I walked into a bar on the South Side and found the love of my life—Jameson Clarke.

He’s everything I’ve always wanted, and yet somehow even better than I imagined. He’s brave, brash, protective of those he loves, and under all that bravado is a vulnerability that calls to my very soul.

Jameson’s a storm cloud, but he thinks I’m the sun. If that’s true, then I’m determined to break through the shadows of his past and steal his heart the way he’s stolen mine.

I really loved Jameson and Ryan’s journey to happily ever after. There were enough twists and emotional growth to captivate my interest. Extremely steamy scenes. Some heart tugging revelations. And the perfect duet story length. All of it spoke to my MM Romance addiction and satisfied it to the max. These characters are so compelling and every little bite we get in this Chicagoverse makes me a little giddy. I never devour a book quite so quickly as an Ella Frank story. Every single time I’m like oh…I’m finished? But…but…I have to say…I always have a big ol’ smile on my face.

Alexei by Eva Winners ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review!

Alexei by Eva Winners is now live!

Alexei Nikolaev.
Blessed with the face of Adonis. 
Cursed with eyes colder than the Artic and a past he can’t escape. 

His history is as tragic as a Dostoyevsky tale. 
He’s been on the FBI’s radar for years but has managed to always stay a step ahead and just out of their grasp. 

When I’m forced to work with him, fire ignites and things spiral out of control. Despite the desire felt from his mouthwatering body, covered in tattoos, distrust between us is deep. 

But unless we learn to work together and trust each other, we’re both as good as dead.

This was an amazing story. A story of a lost soul…Alexei Nikolaev and Aurora Ashford. Aurora is an FBI agent and one tough cookie. I love a strong character. She is forced to work with Alexei out in the field. Alexei is a bad guy but the world needs to find a Russian mobster. With Aurora’s resources and Alexei’s knowledge, they would be good together. Well…the first time they are together…they are going to a sex club. Because the person who owns it is one step closer to who they are looking for. Let me just tell you…This Story Is HOT AS HELL (FIREEEEEEE). I love the connection and the banter in this romance. Aurora can take it and dish it out. She is good for Alexei who has a dark past. This kind of reminds me of “Beauty and the Beast”. So good…So So Good!!!

See Me by Stacey Kennedy ~ Blog Tour w/ Review & Excerpt

She’s the one.
And he’s not giving up without a fight.

SEE ME, an all-new white hot standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy, is out now!

In the Phoenix club, fantasies come to life, but he wants her for real, and he’ll do anything to prove it in this deliciously sexy romance.

Lottie Harlow spends her days as a dog walker and her nights losing herself in wild fantasies at Phoenix, a members-only, voyeuristic sex club in New York City. Her anonymous existence is precisely planned. She must lay low, or risk facing the consequences of her family’s criminal past. She’s a ghost, and she likes it that way. But detective Hunt Walker is determined to uncover her secrets…

Hunt has always loved his nights at Phoenix, but they’re no longer enough. He wants more. He wants a relationship. He wants Lottie. He’s wanted her for years. The only problem? Lottie keeps him at a careful distance, never letting him get too close, ignoring the sizzling heat burning between them. He knows she’s intrigued by him, but she’s scared. He just can’t figure out why… But when enemies from her past come seeking revenge for her family’s deal gone wrong, Lottie’s secrets are revealed, and so is the explosive passion they’ve been fighting.

Soon, lust leads the way to love, but when Lottie’s brothers start threatening her, the line between right and wrong is blurred. Hunt becomes torn between his duty to his badge and his need to keep Lottie safe. But he’ll only get one chance to prove to Lottie that she’s worth fighting for… and that their love is worth the risk.

Review

Read an excerpt below!

“Tell me who you think broke into your condo,” he said firmly.

She shook her head, forcing her shoulders back. “I don’t know.” She knew better than to totally write off her family, but she couldn’t think up a good enough reason why they’d break into her condo after all this time. Plus, she had paid a lot of money to ensure she was never found. For the first couple of years she’d been in New York City, she’d always looked over her shoulder, worried they’d catch up with her, demanding the money she’d stolen. But no one ever came. After the third year, she stopped looking, feeling safe in her new identity.

Hunt dipped his chin, bringing his eye level down to hers. “No idea at all who it could be?”

“Nope,” she said, striding off before he could look too deep and find answers that she couldn’t give him.

She felt his gaze following her, reading right through all the things she wasn’t telling him.

When he finally caught up with her on the way back to her condo, he blessedly shifted subjects. “Come stay with me until we catch the person responsible,” he offered.

Cars honked at each other as she shook her head adamantly. “Like hell they’re making me afraid of my own home.”

“Then I’ll take your couch. It’s not safe, Lottie.” When they stopped at the corner of the street and waited for the light to change, he arched an eyebrow. “I have a gun. You do not.”

“Good point,” she said. This spelled all kinds of dangerous, but Hunt would not relent, and she refused to leave her condo. “Okay, you’re right; it’s safer,” she conceded, knowing her limitations in protecting herself if someone broke in again. “I appreciate the offer.”

“Think nothing of it,” he said and began crossing the street. “We can grab my overnight bag before we go back to your place.”

All of this seemed unnecessary, but she realized as she inhaled the greasy aroma coming from the hot dog stand, that for the first time since she opened her condo’s door earlier, she could breathe a little easier.

When they arrived at the condo a half an hour later, the forensic unit was packing up. She sighed as she took in the state of the place. What a mess! Figuring she had to start somewhere, she moved to the living room, picked up the cushions off the floor, and placed them back on the couch.

After a short conversation, Hunt shut the front door behind the last cop and locked it. He moved to the liquor cabinet in the corner of her living room and poured them both a double shot of whiskey. He handed her the glass and watched her with a stern look, his well-crafted cop look. “Time’s up, Lottie.”

“I’m not sure what you mean.” She sipped her whiskey. A big, long sip.

His mouth twitched, but that was the only break in his intensity. “I rather enjoy when you make me work to know you. But I’m afraid, like I already said, time is up. Tell me what you’re hiding.”

She swallowed. Part of her wanted to tell him everything. Explain her entire past. But if Hunt knew about her past life as Marissa Ricci, and that she’d had her true identity buried, he’d have to tell Rhys. Then Archer would learn that she’d lied to them. She’d never be allowed back in Phoenix. She loved her new life, and that included her sensual life in Phoenix, and her friends who also belonged.

The air seemed too thin as Hunt took another step closer, erasing the distance between them. “I know there’s a reason you have refused, from day one, to not act on what’s between us. And I know that reason is tied to your break-in today.”

She looked to her glass, avoiding his penetrating stare. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

His fingers dragged against her jawline before he cupped her chin, forcing her to meet the strength in his gaze. “Let me help you.”

She needed to shut this down. Now. Hunt was too smart, too insightful, too damn trained. Her heart began to hammer, making the room feel smaller and smaller. He’d peel all her layers back and expose all her secrets. She couldn’t allow that.

“Lottie,” he said, a pillar of strength.

Suddenly it occurred to her she knew exactly how to distract him. Ignoring the consequences, she placed her glass on the table and grabbed his shirt, pulling him closer. Before she could second-guess herself, she sealed her lips on his. He stiffened, seemly momentarily surprised, until he softened, wrapping his arms around her, bringing her tight against him with a low groan.

Her lips opened, and his followed, but he never quite gave her the kiss she suddenly, desperately needed.

When he broke away a few minutes later, he chuckled against her lips. “Shutting me up, huh? All right, Lottie, I’ll go along with that.” His hands fell to her hips, and he gave her a push until her back hit the wall. She gasped. Need stormed through her as his eyes darkened with arousal. “For now.”

Frenzied thoughts filled her mind as his mouth met hers again, but when he took over the kiss, her thoughts simply faded into nothingness.

She parted her mouth, and his tongue invaded, sliding against hers. His kiss was skilled, determined, and left her dripping. She slid her hands over his strong, flexing arms, shoulders, up his thick neck to the back of his head, running her fingers across the shaved hair.

He groaned, breaking the kiss so his lips could travel along her neck. His hand threaded in her hair, and she rolled her hips, heat pooling low in her body. His tongue flicked her ear lobe, and she moaned, a tease of how that tongue would feel elsewhere. “Can I touch you?” His breath tickled across her ear.

The game was dangerous. And yet, and yet…she couldn’t stop from playing now that she felt him…tasted him. “Yes.”

Excerpt

He’s inches from my face. His eyes a black, soulless window into his corner of hell.

“I want to lay you over that table and beat you with my belt, until your skin is flayed open.”

They’re just words, Daniela. I swallow the fear creeping in. “But you won’t.”

His mouth crashes into mine, stealing my thoughts, my breath, and what’s left of my composure.

“But I won’t,” he murmurs, when he pulls back. “Not today.”

“Not ever,” I whisper.

“I wouldn’t take that bet if I were you.”

He’s wrestling with a demon, and I attempt to drag him away. “I’d take that bet anytime, anywhere. You won’t hurt me.”

When I lay out my unwavering faith in his love, he groans, as if in pain, and rests his forehead against mine. His breathing is ragged, and there’s an intensity about him even in repose. The fight’s not over. He’s merely catching his breath.

I ache to wrap my arms around him, but he’s holding my wrists securely in one hand. “Let me touch you,” I plead, softly.

His grip tightens, as though the prospect of my touch threatens him in some way.

Antonio lifts his head and peers into my eyes while his free hand slides under my sundress. He isn’t patient. There are no light caresses to my inner thighs to build my arousal. He goes straight to my panties, and wedges his feet between mine, pushing my legs apart, while his thumb skates over the gusset, working the silky fabric into my wet flesh.

“Someone might come in. And I need to get back to the girls.”

“The nurses will find you when it’s time.” He nips my bottom lip, with the devil dancing in his eyes. “But no one’s coming in. Not even if you scream.”

He came looking for Ace, but he found me instead…

Bloody Cruel Psycho, an explosive dark college romance in The Bloody Duet from USA Today bestselling author Lucy Smoke, is available now!

A life for a life … will kill the both of us in the end.

Clover

I know nothing of the Sickness at Eastpoint University. I know only the backroads that slip past the southern beaches and the gators that make their way onto the swamps shores. Until him. Until the killer known as Braxton Smalls finds his way into my stilted trailer on the coast of Port Charlotte.

He came looking for Ace, but he found me instead…

Braxton

I’m a monster. Always have been. Always will be. The only people I’ve ever given a shit about are my boys and their girls. No one hurts my family, and knowing that someone has … and that they’ve gotten away with it plagues me.

Ace Volkov will pay for what he put Avalon through and if I have to use his most precious weakness to draw him out, I will.

She thinks she can bargain for his life with her own, but I mean to show her that there’s nothing I won’t do to see my vengeance through to the end.

I have been addicted to the Sick Boys since book one and am thrilled we have Braxton’s story. And it starts off with a bang as Braxton is on the hunt for Ace to secure revenge for his family. How does this involve innocent Clover? All I’ll say is things are not all as they seem and as long as Braxton has a pound of flesh…he’s not all that picky who he gets to “play” with. Loved this dark, twisted story that weaves its way around Braxton and Clover’s toxic relationship. Not only their interactions but also the interactions between Clover and the Sick Boys family. Both sides trying to figure out what makes each other tick. Fascinating. And their “sick” need for each other. I am one hundred percent there for the unraveling of what’s behind the scenes of all of the danger and manipulation of the elite families and their heirs. Can’t wait for what comes next! Definitely ended with some danger that I need to know more about!

Excerpt

“You want to bend me and break me, Braxton Smalls.”

“And you’re going to let me,” he shoots back. “All for him.” He spits out the last word like it’s a curse.

I shake my head. “To an extent, Brax,” I warn him. “You think you have me cornered because I agreed to fuck you in return for you not tearing ass after Ace, but understand this much.” I lean up on my elbows and stare back at him. He grits his teeth as his hands ball into fists. “I’m the swamp rat you picked up. I have not been catered to my whole life like the women you were raised around. I am my own person and when someone pushes too far, I let them know. You have rights over my body, Brax, but that’s as far as it goes.”

Braxton’s arms drop to his sides and before I know it, his hands are around my waist as he rips the towel away from my body and turns, shoving me up against the outside glass of the shower. “You think your body is all you’re giving me, Clover?”

I swallow hard. “Yes.” I turn the small lie into a silent prayer.

His wide mouth curves into a vicious smile. “Then you have nothing to fear.”
