Title: Teach Me Sweetly
Author: Abby Gale
Genre: Sweet Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 16, 2019
When I accepted the teaching position in a town the size of my thumb, 
all I cared about was making some money until I was ready to pursue my dream. 
My time here was supposed to have an expiration date. 
My plan was simple.
Until her.
The girl with a cupcake and fascinating sadness.
Her beauty got my attention first, then her loneliness and melancholy captivated me. 
Her words and pain fed my interest, but it was her heart that sealed my fate. 
I came to this town with no expectations. 
But I didn’t know my dream and muse was waiting for me in a school uniform.

When Elijah took a substitute teaching job at a private school, it was just to make ends meet. Until he met Eva. Of course the girl he met at the bar would end up in his class. As Elijah tries to keep his distance, Eva’s sadness just calls to him. All he knows is he can’t stop himself from stepping over the line.

“How many different ways I can think of how to comfort her and make her forget about every problem she has.

How I want to make her writhe underneath me. How I want to taste her skin just like I was about to do on my first day here.”

Truly a steamy teacher/student read that will set your panties on fire. Eva lives a sad, lonely life until Elijah becomes her substitute English teacher. The chemistry between the two overcomes any taboo objections as they can’t fight the soul deep attraction. And physical lust…let’s not forget about how their bodies talk. It does not disappoint if you are seeking something a little naughty.

This was my first book by this author and it definitely intrigued my thirst for taboo. Something light, wicked and would make your mother blush.

“TEACH ME SWEETLY is a forbidden romance filled with tenderness and impossible love, and most of all, sweetness. Another heartfelt and taboo romance from Gale that her readers will adore. Just beautiful.” – Brianna Hale Author

I’m Abby Gale, an international author. I generally write erotica with little suspense in it, but I don’t like to label myself so whatever strikes my fancy will be my upcoming release.

Damien (A Stark Novel) by J. Kenner ~ Blog Tour w/ Review, Trailer & Excerpt!

DAMIEN_ BT.jpg

I am Damien Stark. Do you want to see inside my head?

Careful what you wish for.

Damien, an all-new full-length novel in the wildly popular Stark Saga, from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner is available now!

damien_fnl_081418_v2

I am Damien Stark. From the outside, I have a perfect life. A billionaire with a beautiful family. But if you could see inside my head, you’d know I’m as f-ed up as a person can be. Now more than ever.

I’m driven, relentless, and successful, but all of that means nothing without my wife and daughters. They’re my entire world, and I failed them. Now I can barely look at them without drowning in an abyss of self-recrimination.

Only one thing keeps me sane—losing myself in my wife’s silken caresses where I can pour all my pain into the one thing I know I can give her. Pleasure.

But the threats against my family are real, and I won’t let anything happen to them ever again. I’ll do whatever it takes to keep them safe—pay any price, embrace any darkness. They are mine.

I am Damien Stark. Do you want to see inside my head? Careful what you wish for.

I want to start off by saying that I am a huge fan of the Stark series and of Damien Stark. I liked this book and it was fun to see where they are now. There definitely were sexy hot scenes but I figured out the villain pretty early on and found myself skimming to these sexy scenes.

I’m glad we got to see Nikki, Damien and the gang and got a view into where their journey has taken them. I am still in awe of Nikki and Damien’s love for each other and seeing how far they have come. Their bond is proven yet again to be unbreakable. Glad I read it and good to see where they are in their lives.

Excerpt

He started to lash out. To pound his fist against the door frame. But he pulled back, not wanting to wake Nikki or the two little angels curled up next to her in their bed. His wife. His precious little girls.

His family.

As much as he loved Nikki, he hadn’t truly understood how full his heart could be until he’d held Lara in his arms for the first time. And though he hadn’t expected it was possible, his heart had expanded even more when he watched Anne’s birth two years ago and saw her draw that first breath.

Every day, his daughters looked up at him with wide, guileless eyes. And every day, he felt that punch in the gut. A fear that he couldn’t live up to the trust he saw there. That somehow, someway, he would fail them. Not in the way his own father had failed him. But in some other, fundamental way.

And that’s exactly what happened.

He thought of Rory, that fucker who’d taken his child. Of Nikki, broken and huddled in the closet with a blade, blood streaming down her fair skin, cutting for the first time in years. The first time since he’d demanded that she come to him—to him—when she needed the blade.

So many times, she’d done exactly that. Gone to him when the burden of the world had been too much to bear. When she needed the pain to find her way back. And he’d always been there for her, his need as potent as hers. Because he had to be the one to take her there. To slide down with her into that sweet place where sensual pleasure crossed over into pain. Where need and desire meshed, merging into euphoria. Where they could both cling to that one small measure of control in a world that was spinning off its axis.

How many times had they saved each other? Their needs meshing as perfectly as their desire?

How many times had he held her close as they fought their demons together? And yet this time—when the worst parts of hell had swallowed them whole—she hadn’t come to him. Instead, she’d put a razor-sharp length of stainless steel against her own flesh, and she’d drawn her own blood for the first time in years.

All because he’d failed her. Because it was his mistakes that spawned the demons.

Because for the first time in their relationship she hadn’t trusted him to save her. And why should she, when he’d already failed so spectacularly?

He thought of that. Of the scars on her legs. Of the fresh wound that mocked him still.

He thought—and his stomach twisted with pain and self-loathing.

Mostly, he thought of Anne. His precious girl, who’d been alone and scared for days.

They’d gotten Anne back. They’d talked about Damien’s choices. The risks he’d taken to find their daughter and her kidnapper. They’d worked it out, and they were back on keel. And he knew in his gut that Nikki was strong enough to survive the whole ordeal.

But that didn’t change the simple, basic truth.

He’d failed.

Roughly, he massaged his palms over his face, then looked again at his girls, curled up together, safe and asleep.

Safe.

For now, at least.

But for the first time in a long time, Damien felt as if the shadows that had plagued his past had returned to haunt him, bringing harsh recriminations and fresh dangers.

He squared his shoulders, steeling himself. He was strong. More than that, he had resources. He had means. And he damn well had the determination to keep those encroaching horrors at bay.

Most of all, he had a life—a family—worth fighting for.

He was fucking Damien Stark.

He’d failed once.

He wouldn’t fail again.

A simple notification turns my world upside down…

The tabloids are reporting, I’ve taken the crown and run.
(Not entirely true)

As you might have guessed, I’m not an ordinary girl
and I don’t lead an ordinary life, but that doesn’t mean I always follow the rules.
This time, though, I feel compelled to obey.

Which means I have to find a king, to sit alongside my throne, or lose it all.

With only the clothes on my back, I head to the land of majestic playboys, where a royal rebel strides right into my life.

With his sultry eyes and sinful lips, he turns my world right-side up.

The press is calling him washed up.

Gorgeous, sexy, irresistible, and utterly charming, he’s exactly what I’m looking for.
Everything is almost too perfect, too easy.

Until I discover, this hot-blooded royal has a reason for being here.
And it’s more than just me.
That thing I said about easy, turns out… Nothing ever is.

My royal rebel has a name, it’s Prince Adrien Laurent.
My name is Princess Victoria Blanchette.
And this is our story.

That is why she ditches her wedding and all her responsibilities and flees to Rhode Island. She feels that this is a playground of the rich, famous and royalty and is determined to find herself a husband.

The only problem is the hot, hot stranger at the airport on her way to Rhode Island and an incredible one night stand with him. She cannot get him out of her mind. Will she run into this sexy stranger again or try to find someone new?

It’s a cute little love story and would be a great beach read. Nothing over the top so if your looking for hot steamy sex this is more rated PG.

How do you date your best friend’s sister? Easy.

Step one: Pretend you want her to set you up with someone else. That will bring the two of you closer.

She’s smart–really smart–and her wicked gaze cuts through all the charm I’ve tried slinging her way. She’s not interested in games, my gifts, or my stories. She might want me too; but she’s not giving in that easy…

Bram Scott has been interested in his best friend’s sister from the moment her saw her. But Julia Westin had pegged him as an arrogant frat guy who was full of himself from day one. As Bram launches into an extensive plan to prove to Julia that he’s ready for a commitment with her by joining her dating business, will she finally open her eyes and give him a chance? Or will Bram find love with one of the lucky ladies that Julie matches him with?

“…I’m going to take my time easing her into the idea that Bram Scott is a relationship man and then…oh fuck…I’m going to throw her for a loop, catch her off balance, and then swoop in like a goddamn knight in shining armor and claim her as mine.”

This is a cute brother’s BFF and sister romance but a VERY slow burn. I really fell in love with Bram. He was willing to pull out every trick to get Julia to notice that he was all grown up and ready to date her. But Julia just doesn’t seem to want to give him a chance. And she drove me crazy with her head in the sand antics. I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to grab her and shake some sense into her. My absolute favorite parts in this book are with Julia’s brother Rath and Bram’s friendship. These bros absolutely love each other. It’s very endearing and comical at the same time. There were several laugh out loud and sweet moments in this story that I think everyone will pretty much adore. And also the growl out loud angst that Meghan is famous for.

If you enjoy Meghan’s books, you won’t want to skip this one. It’s low simmering but at every single step you are rooting for Bram as he’s a man with a plan. You just want him to get what he wants. And he knows he wants Julia.

(Brother’s best friend, forbidden love, small-town, military second-chance romance.)

A promise written on a coaster.
A lost night in a dark room.
Grayson Cole was my brother’s best friend.
He was all of my firsts.
Then he went away…

Drew Harris was just a kid, a senior in high school, my best friend’s little sister.
They said she was too young to know her feelings.
I was too old to have them, so I left to join the military.

Four years passed.
Loss, injury, angry words I can never take back…
I’m home, but I’m not the same.
Neither is she.

Now she’s a woman with flashing blue eyes, long blonde hair, and gorgeous curves.
Still, she’s the same sweet smile, the same sassy mouth…
I could never say No to her before.

I should for her sake.
She deserves better than what I’ve become, scarred and damaged.

“They told me to stay away from you.
I went away to try… God, I tried.
Now everything has changed. I’m back, and
I’ll do whatever it takes to make you mine…”

This was a sweet but predictable book and had a little bit of everything…loss, love, secrets, angst, heartbreak and anger. Grayson and Danny are best friends since they were kids and Grayson has always had a special place in his heart for Danny’s little sister Drew. Gray and Drew have a relationship of sorts and hide it from everyone until Gray and Danny end up leaving for the military. Eventually Gray finds his way back to his hometown. Trying to heal mentally, can the loss he has suffered bring him and Drew back together or will secrets and nightmares tear them apart even more?

It flowed really well but as I said was moderately predictable. I enjoyed watching the healing and reconnection of these two characters and it was an ok book for me.

Excerpt

“Your daddy’s right.” Gray looked at me with tortured blue eyes that contradicted every word he said. “You’re so young. You don’t know what you want.”

I only kissed him again, crawled onto his lap again, put his hands on me and made us forget my disapproving father, my overprotective brother. Neither of them had been there for me the way Grayson always had.

“I know what I want…”

Just One Kiss, Oh’ Tequila #4 by C.A. Harms from Limitless Publishing is LIVE!!

One-Click: Amazon | Amazon Universal

What do you get when you mix Tequila with a house full of rowdy Fraternity brothers who have no boundaries? A cucumber, a pink thong, and a bottle of lube. Oh yeah, and super glue. There is always super glue…



Parties, drinking, and plenty of mornings where you can’t remember what you did the night before…that was my life. 



Yet, there was one memory that lingered in my mind. Ten minutes in the woods with Palmer that got too intense to ignore. 



But ten minutes with her wasn’t enough. It would never be enough.



She’s a force, one that swept in unexpectantly, knocked me on my ass and left me with an intense craving. Palmer tried to fight it with every fiber in her being, but I could see the desire in her eyes. That curiosity that lived inside of her, wondering what it would be like if she just gave in…again.



I had to convince her that our time together wasn’t a mistake. That she wants me as much as I want her. We share a connection, a bond, that has changed me in ways I never expected. She saved me. And to think…



It all started with Just One Kiss.

Publication Date: December 4, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark Romance

Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon

We’ve always been different.
Normal is something that’s bored us from the moments we were spit into this world, screaming and crying, wondering why we were dispelled from the sanctity of the darkness we both crave.
I guess in a way, it’s made us stronger than we thought we were.
Especially now since we have each other.
I’d do anything for her and she would do anything for me.

Lie.
Cheat.
Steal.
Kill.

We were never meant to be together, but the universe has a way of taking two completely different disasters and putting them together to let destruction reign freely. Our story is born of violence, deceit, and mischief, but it’s one you won’t soon forget.

Welcome to the world according to Pike & Molly.

*Warning: This is an extremely dark, taboo story. There are numerous triggers throughout the story.

WTF did I Just read? I am kinda at a loss for words considering its been three days since I finished the book. Was it steamy? In some parts, yes. Was it effed up? Oh, hell yeah! Did I like it? Yep. But at the same time I was in shock and thought OH! I can’t believe they went there. Definitely worth the read. Especially if you like dark books. If not, well this isn’t the one for you. Reminded me a little bit of Joker and Harley Quinn in some ways. Not bad at all though.
