Lines always blur when people fall in love.

Strangers in My Bed, an all-new captivating dark standalone romance full of twists and turns from USA Today bestselling author Jade West, is available now!

It’s an amazing thing, being a wedding planner, when you’ve been dreaming of a big day of your own since being a little girl.

But it’s not so amazing when the love of your life leaves you for another woman.

My dreams have all deserted me, and I’m alone in a new town when I meet him. The stranger at the bar.

Anthony Bradstone is everything I ever wanted. A prince, right from the start. A shining star, successful and loving. Committed, brilliant, generous. Mr Perfect.

But the brightest stars have the darkest shadows, and Ant’s love comes with… conditions.

That’s how one stranger in my bed turns to several, and those several turn into a whole lot more.

I know that lines always blur when people fall in love. People’s depths get deeper, and their shadows get darker, and relationships can get a little… twisted sometimes.

So it’s just as well there’s someone out there who knows my prince well enough to help me untangle him.

They call Ant’s best friend the crusader for a reason.

I’m about to find out why it’s true.

Warning: This is a very dark romance. There are themes of coercion, conflicts of emotions, and difficult situations from the past.

Please proceed with caution.

HOLY COW! What did I just read? Wow…this story has taken me in a million different directions. I am hot and heavy one second and emotionally screaming the next. Super sexy and dirty to cheering for the good guy. The story starts off with some naughty things that happen between Ant and Cass. You really think that things are a certain way, but they turn out to be completely different. The story takes a complete 360 turn when Ant’s best friend Gerwyn enters the picture. Truths come out, feeling change, and HOLY COW I felt gutted one minute but happy the next. This story really makes you think about how things are seen and are they really what we think they are? I loved this story. It was a bit long but so well worth it. I couldn’t put it down because I needed to know what was happening. But when something happened, I would need to take a break to recover. Really a well written and thought provoking story.

Excerpt

We’re on the motorway heading north when my nerves come back with a vengeance. I’m still flying high from the day we’ve had, but I’m terrified. I don’t know if I can be anywhere near as good as the girl on the video.

Probably not.

Scratch that.

Definitely not.

Ant turns the radio down when I start shifting in my seat.

“You ok, baby?”

I manage a smile. “Yeah.”

“Worried about tonight?” he reads me like a book.

“Just a bit,” I admit.

“Don’t be worried, sweetheart. I’ll be right there with you.” He reaches out and squeezes my hand.

I don’t want to tell him that him being there is one of the main reasons I’m so worried. If it was a case of getting it on with someone until they’d taken their fill and disappeared, it would be one thing, but knowing Ant will be directing me through the challenge of performing like a slut is a whole different game to play.

“Cass,” he says, jolting me back to him. “You don’t need to be worried about anything. I’ll be there to guide you. And you can call time out whenever you want. It’s your choice, princess.”

“You make it sound so easy,” I tell him, “I just…”

“Because it is easy, baby,” he squeezes my hand again. “Trust me. All you have to do is follow my lead, relax, and enjoy it. You can do that, right?”

“I’ll try.”

“Good girl.”

I only hope he’s still telling me I’m a good girl when it’s all over.

Ant takes the motorway exit at Gloucester and pulls into the car park of a sweet little restaurant. It’s cute and quaint, and I’d usually be exclaiming that he’d chosen well for dinner, but I’m just too edgy. He must feel my hand trembling as we make our way to the pub door, and he stops walking, turning to face me.

“I mean it, Cass. Call time out. If you can’t do this for me, then say it.”

I’m shaking my head as he speaks, and my expression must be as serious as his.

“I can do this, Ant.”

“But do you want to?”

“Yes!”

We stare at each other. The tension at an all-time high.

It’s him who breaks it.

“Sorry. I’m not convinced, princess, so let’s call it off. I’ll let our visitor know.”

He pulls his phone from his pocket and carries on walking, but I pull him back.

I’m so scared of disappointing him that my heart is thumping like crazy.

“I want it! I know you’ll make it amazing. You always do. You make everything amazing. This isn’t going to be any different, is it? You’ll make me love it, just like always. I know you will!”

He weighs me up, and I feel on trial. Fuck, I hope he believes me.

Wow! This story was the mafia romance I didn’t know I needed! In a male dominated world, Catarina AKA Donna Conti was a strong, ruthless badass. I was impressed with her thirst for vengeance and one hundred percent on board with her sneaky ways. But then I met Massimo Greco and that playboy Mafia prince stole my heart. I loved their meet cute, reunion and the slow burn to trusting one another with their hidden secrets. Their tragic backstory brought the two together…like fate. Swoon!!!!! The book was entertaining, suspenseful and held a few unpredictable twists. AND we got reunited with the Big Boss Bennett Mazzone. Mmmmmmmmmmm. Can’t go wrong with some Bennett action. Definitely happy I read this one!

Excerpt

Lust blazes in his eyes. “I will wait for you to come to me.”

“You’ll be waiting,” I blurt, irritated when amusement skates across his face. I hate how he can obviously tell it’s a lie. He can see I’m floundering. That his want is not one-sided.

“I have a hand, and my blue balls can be patient.” A teasing smile spreads across his mouth, and I’m ensnared. Massimo is truly beautiful, and I only hope I’m strong enough to resist. I already suspect I’m not. “To a point,” he whispers against my ear, sending warm shivers coursing along my flesh. I squirm on his lap, failing to ignore the hard, thick length pulsing underneath me.

Massimo groans, and his eyes darken with undeniable desire. “You were put on this earth to test me. I’m sure of it.”

I can’t smother my smile in time.

“One kiss,” he says, his eyes dropping to my mouth as his tongue darts out and he wets his lips. “Would you deny your husband a kiss on his wedding night?”

“I have kissed you today.”

He shakes his head as his fingers sweep back and forth across my mouth, making it harder and harder to resist temptation. “I have kissed you. You have gone along with it because it was expected.”

He’s as delusional as me if he truly believes that. I drive my hands into his hair without even thinking about it. “Will everything be a negotiation between us?”

His brows climb to his hairline and a devilish grin widens his lush mouth. “Do we know any other way to be?”

“One kiss. Just one kiss.” The words feel like lies as I spout them.

“That is all I am asking.” He closes his eyes, moaning softly as my fingers explore the thick strands of his black hair. “That feels so incredibly good.”

I brush my mouth against his, and his eyes pop wide. His hands flatten against my back, pushing me in closer to his tempting body. I can indulge in one kiss. It is my wedding night after all, and my husband is one of the sexiest men alive. It’s not wrong to take this one thing for myself, right? “Just one kiss,” I remind him as our breaths comingle.

“Only one.”

Closing my eyes, I lower my mouth to his and descend into sheer bliss. He lets me control it, at first, and I’m surprised at the potent need driving me to take everything as I prod at the seam of his lips with my tongue. He opens instantly, letting my tongue plunge inside his mouth. I reposition myself on his lap, straddling his hips, so I can properly kiss him, and it’s that moment when all bets are off.

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.

This story was a little tough for me. Lottie and Hunt are two members of Club Phoenix, which on the outside it looks like a cigar lounge, and deep inside is a sex club. Well…there isn’t much time in the sex club which disappointed me. For those who know me, I love my stories DIRTY! This story has some filthy tidbits of dirty, but it is more mystery to me. This was a well written story and the author knew what she is doing. Lottie (Marissa) has a past that she is running from. She wants nothing to do with Hunt, a cop in town. She knows her past could hurt him. After seven years, events finally comes back to haunt her. Hunt is there to help her. He winds up in jail and everything Lottie was worried about comes true. It was a little rushed in certain spots for me, and not enough naughty. It was good but I would say if you are looking for naughty sex club story, this one isn’t it.

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.”

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.”

Pre-order the jaw-dropping conclusion Bloody Cruel Monster!
