HOT STUFF by Kim Karr ~Release Blitz W/ Review, Trailer, Excerpt & Giveaway

 Title: Hot Stuff
Author: Kim Karr
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 27, 2017

 Blurb

Get ready to fall in love with this new standalone sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.

He’s the newly drafted quarterback.
Hot. Arrogant. Too sexy for words.
Ready to score.

I’m an athletic intern, and the coach’s daughter.
Driven. Determined. Prepared to conquer the world.
Completely off-limits.

The NFL is full of rules. Rules I’ve never broken. Never challenged. Never even scratched–until the day Lucas Carrington crashes into my life with his hard body and I-don’t-give-a-f*ck attitude.

After I almost injure my father’s star player, I volunteer to make sure he’s in top shape. At first, it’s hell. I don’t like his cockiness, his easy smile. Don’t like the way he oozes sex. Or how his penetrating eyes follow me everywhere.

That doesn’t stop me from wanting him.  He’s meant to be a distraction–something to occupy my mind for these precious few remaining hot summer nights before I’m forced to leave football behind forever.

I know what we’re doing will lead nowhere good. I know we’re crossing the line. And I know my father will never understand.

None of that matters.

But maybe it should.

Rules aren’t meant to be broken.

Or are they?

A short read but super cute book….with tons of super sexy, hot bedroom scenes!!!

Lucas is a college football quarterback that has just been drafted into the NFL…..to a team he does not want to be on….his attitude is less then stellar to say the least. He is not looking for a serious relationship and is focused on becoming the best quarterback the NFL has.

Gillian…owner’s daughter of said NFL team and part of the organization as well but is well on her way to have her own career outside the NFL once she gets her degree. She is not looking for any serious relationship as well. She however, does want to be a part of the team or anything related to the NFL but her degree will lead her away from it all and she is torn.

Naturally these two complex and career driven people have an instant attraction and have some pretty hot sex scenes *fans herself*. However, they both agree that once training camp is over, so is there love affair. There is a strict fraternization rule and neither of them are willing to risk their careers. Only fate has a funny way of stepping in and instead of keeping it to “booty calls”, they end up falling for each other….hard.

It was a fast paced (and too short!! I wanted more!!) hot and steamy book and I loved watching the love these two had form. I’m definitely not one for insta-love in books but this was much more then that. Loved it and would definitely recommend! Look forward to reading about other characters that were in this book and learning about what their stories are!

Excerpt

Disappointed, she unwrapped her arms from her body, and then pivoted on her toe in the direction of the open door. “Then it looks like we have nothing further to discuss, Lucas.”
I reached for her and tugged her to me. “I don’t want to want you,” I breathed, my mouth hovering just centimeters from hers.
Gillian tried to pull away, but not whole-heartedly. If she wanted me to let her go, I would have, but I knew she didn’t. “Then stop,” she sighed.
I took her face in my hands. “I can’t. I don’t know how to.”
“Neither do I,” she whispered.
Unable to stop myself, I crashed my lips to hers and drove my tongue into her mouth to retrace every inch that I had explored days ago.

Theirs To Take by Laura Kaye ~Blog Tour w/ Review & Giveaway

Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…

 

12 Masters. 12 Desires. 12 Fantasies Come to Life.
Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…

About THEIRS TO TAKE (Blasphemy #4, 9/26/17):

12 Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemy…

She’s the fantasy they’ve always wanted to share…

Best friends Jonathan Allen and Cruz Ramos share almost everything—a history in the Navy, their sailboat building and restoration business, and the desire to dominate a woman together, which they do at Baltimore’s exclusive club, Blasphemy. Now if they could find someone who wants to play for keeps…

All Hartley Farren has in the world is the charter sailing business she inherited from her beloved father. So when a storm damages her boat, she throws herself on the mercy of business acquaintances to do the repairs—stat. She never expected to find herself desiring the sexy, hard-bodied builders, but being around Jonathan and Cruz reminds Hartley of how much she longs for connection. If only she could decide which man she wants to pursue more…

As their attraction flashes hot, Jonathan and Cruz determine to have Hartley for their own. But the men’s erotic world is new and overwhelming, and Hartley’s unsure if she could really submit to being both of theirs to take…forever.

My eyes are still smokin’ from this book!!! Wow…for a super short book it sure does pack a punch!!

Hartley is screwed. She owns a charter service that her deceased father once owned and ran and weeks before she needs her boat to be seaworthy it gets damaged in a storm and she is a nervous wreck it wont be fixed in time…

Enter Jonathon and Cruz…..hot, hot, hot..boat restoration partners (in more ways then one) they are not only business partners but were in the military together. Jonathon has an instant attraction to Hartley and offers to help Hartley get her boat fixed. While Cruz is hesitant at first, he soon starts to see what his partner is attracted to. Lets just say that once the boat repairs start, more then one hammer is getting swung!!!

Their chemistry does not seemed forced and it seemed like the most realistic threesome that I have ever read..didn’t seem made up or written for shock value, if that makes any sense. The sex scenes were plentiful in this short but and left nothing to the imagination and were some of the steamiest I have read. I was sad to have it be over but looking to reading more in this series. Definitely should be put on your to be read list!!

Beauty by Mary Catherine Gebhard ~Release Blitz w/ Review

 

Title: Beauty: A Hate Story, The End
Series: Hate Story Duet #2
Author: Mary Catherine Gebhard
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Dark Romance
Release Date: September 21, 2017
Blurb
Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.My prince was a Beast with blood on his hands and ice in his veins. My family
offered to save me. The only price: leaving the tattered pieces of my heart
behind.

Our love was irrational. Cruel. Unforgiving. Nothing like the storybooks said
it should be—but it was perfect.

The longer we were apart, the more I lost myself. He was vicious and
domineering, but I craved the submission. Together we were destructive, but I
was addicted to the devastation. Still, I thought titles mattered. To my family
I was princess, and to the Beast I was slave. I was too naïve to understand
that even though he’d been my captor, he’d broken the shackles on my soul.

Once upon a time, I thought love meant happily ever after.

Now I know better.

So when I finished the first book Beast, I could not wait to read this 2nd book Beauty. I was left with a cliffhanger and was dying to know what happened. Well….it started off where I had no idea what was happening. because it evidently starts a month after where the first book left off and gave very little details as to what had happened. You did, sort of piece it together but to tell you the truth by that point I was exhausted.

To add to the confusion the storyline got too twisted. Yep..too twisted. Call me crazy but it was just too confusing. Too many characters, too many stories from the past being told, too many stories being told to cover up the truth….it was just too much. I lost track of who was who and what was going on…I found myself skipping a lot. What did keep me going was the raw need to find out what happens to Frankie and Beast.

I will say that all the questions do get answered, whether they make sense or not remains to be seen but I was glad the way it ended…well sort of. To be honest I feel like I could have only read the first and last two chapters and it would have been good for me because I didn’t understand 75% of it…just way too confusing!!

This was a love story that was a quick read. While I didn’t love this book, it did have its moments and kept me reading.

Jack is a nerd turned hot guy and turns many a heads and is slowly falling in love with Sarah. He pulls out all the stops to make her fall for him too. Sarah, who is obsessed with chocolate (and adds nothing to story and confused me) is focused on her job and does not believe in love. She deep down would like to have it all but her head forces her to keep love at bay.

There are so many dates (wink-wink) that go wrong and both are left wanting more. Some of these mishaps/moments were downright funny and some seemed forced to be funny. Like the author was trying too hard to make the reader laugh. At times it was more corny then funny but it didn’t stop me from reading. All in all it was a cute love story, had some funny exchanges and inner thoughts and a few sexy scenes (with most ending in disaster).

I’d recommend….cute beach summer read that holds your interest and will give you few laughs along the way.

Ten years ago we said goodbye.

I left the world I knew to create a new life for myself. Away from the lies. Away from the pain.

It was all going as planned until a friend asked for help with her club. The business was liberating. The company was intoxicating.

Two masked men became my euphoria. One was a player deep in the game. A teacher both intimately and figuratively.

The other was a quiet director. A man who tempted me with his stares and set me on fire with his dark whispers.

His secrecy excited me, bringing me to levels I’ve never imagined. I thought we were playing a game, but little did I know he knew exactly who I was.

I just wish I figured out his true identity before I fell for his best friend.

Evangeline left home 10 years ago and left her past behind her along with the boy she thought she would spend forever with. Her heart has never been the same and never will. Until now…..

Cole….hot, sexy and her teacher. Can she throw caution to the wind and go after someone she should stay away from because its against the rules? Cole has never been into long relationships and immediately is drawn to Evangeline.

Carter….(oh how I love Carter) he is a pediatric oncologist (hot, hot, hot) and single. He has been pining away for the love of his life that he lost years ago and has never gotten over. He has never found anyone that can compare and he has never given up finding the girl he gave his heart to and then she disappeared one night. He looks for her because he knows the secret she was keeping when she left and he needs to find her. Oh yeah, Cole is one of his only friends. Lets say they bonded in an unconventional way.

Fast forward to Evangeline having a chance to visit and take a peek around said sex club….(everyone has masks on to keep anonymous) she runs into not one, but two sexy masked men and lets just say there are some intense, sex scenes!! Super hot!!! Things get weird though when identities are discovered and secrets are revealed. Talk about a twist!!! Holy moly!!! All lives are upended and it was a real page turner watching where all the pieces fall.

Definitely recommend this book and look forward to reading about other characters.

 

Sexy lovers in bedroom

Excerpt

“Angie Smith?”

My lips tilt up slightly. “Pleasure to meet you.”

“Funny, sometimes you can tell because their name just fits them. I would never guess you for an Angie.”

“Why would you say that?”

He taps his lower lip with a long, deft finger, and I’m instantly distracted by the thought of what that finger could do.

“I don’t know. Just something told me that wasn’t you. You and Ashley were the only two people I couldn’t find any pictures of or any info on really. You guys are smart, or should I add, private.”

“Let’s go with private.” I wink, which makes him raise his eyebrows. I can tell I’m the oldest in the class, and the mad professor here seems to be closer to my age, but I’m still trying to figure out what his name is. “Can I play your little game?”

His lips push together as he nods his head in interest. “By all means. Do you want the class list?”

“No, I bet I can guess your name.”

His head moves up and down slowly. “Take your best shot.” His arms open wide, allowing me to fully take in every part of him.

“Let’s see. I know it starts with a C by my registration, but you have that whole nerdy, indie vibe going on, so I’m going to rule out Chris, Charlie, and Cameron.” The barely noticeable lift to his lips tells me that neither of those is his name, so I start naming off every C name I can think of, waiting for any type of reaction to show in his features. “Christian, Caleb, Connor, Cody, Colin, Cole—” The twitch in his eye makes me stop. I pause, looking him up and down before slightly tilting my head in recognition. “Nice to meet you, Cole.”

The grin covering his face makes me sit back in my chair. Yup, I’m made for this.
“Nicely done, Angie. The master gets beat at his own game. After class you’re going to have to tell me more about how you did that.”

“Anytime, Professor Spence,” I say in a flirtatious way.

His eyes meet mine for what I think is a second too long for a student/teacher moment, but I don’t mind. When they break away, he addresses everyone else, “This course is going to be interactive, and I encourage participation. So, everyone get up, move closer, and gather around Mrs. Smith here.” He returns my earlier wink
before turning back around and writing his name across the board.

I’m intrigued by his lecture the entire night, and yeah, a lot of it was because he’s easy on the eye. I also happen to love the way he challenges people and really gets us involved.

When he says good night, I turn to gather my things and am startled when I hear, “Angie, can I talk to you for a minute?”

My eyes meet with a fellow female student, who I shoot a smile before turning around. “Sure, Professor Spence.”

As I approach his desk, he’s gathering his paperwork to put into his backpack. He stops and turns to face me, leaning against the back of the desk and crossing his arms in front of his body. “So tell me, how did you guess my name?”

I tilt my head to the side, showing him the slightest grin. “Well, that’s my little secret. Just like you said, though, you can learn a lot about a person if you pay close enough attention.”

“I’m impressed. Still can’t believe I got your name wrong. First time that little game didn’t work out for me fully. Please tell me Angie isn’t your real name. Give me some kind of hope.”

I close my eyes, smiling but nodding my head slightly. “Okay, I’ll give you that. Angie isn’t my birth name. I legally changed it years ago.” I can’t believe I just told him that. No one here in San Francisco, or hell, in California, knows that Angie isn’t my real name. For some reason, I felt comfortable enough in this moment to
admit it.

“Okay, I feel a little bit better now, like I’m not a complete failure at my own game. But how did you know mine?”

“I was already trying to guess what it was before you even spoke. I guess I like to play little games, too.”

He laughs. “That doesn’t answer my question, though.”

“I looked at what you were wearing, how you walked, your body type, the fact that you carry a Vans backpack instead of a briefcase.” I pick up his backpack to prove my point. “Then, just like you, I paid attention and took a gamble. I guess you can say I’m good at reading facial expressions. You gave it away when your eye twitched slightly after I said Cole.”

“Nicely done. You just might be cut out for this lawyer thing after all. So do I get to know your real name?”

I shake my head. “Nope, sorry. To you and everyone else, I’m Angie.” I start to walk away but look over my shoulder. “No offense, though.”

I hear him chuckle as he says, “None taken. See you Wednesday, Mrs. Smith.”

I turn back again, giving him a quick smile before saying, “It’s miss.”

Wow, make sure you have time to read this book all at once because you are not gonna want to put it down! Prepare to be put on a rollercoaster! To say you get wrapped up in the storyline and all the emotions would be an understatement.

Lily…..oh poor Lily…..In love for years with her mob assassin, protector, underboss to her father boyfriend Kieran. He will do anything to protect her….anything. Lily however has so many facets to her and her story will have you salivating for more. It’s complicated and has many twists and turns. My heart hurt for them and the story that unfolds between them.

Dare is a mystery man passing Lily notes at the same eatery they go to….for 2 years!! He is the most beautiful man she has ever seen (besides Kieran) and she has the need to know more about him. Needless to say, Dare and Lily have an attraction and connection. They only know each other on the surface because they are both hiding their true identities (gasp!).

Lets just say that these star crossed lovers reminded me of Romeo and Juliet and I wasn’t sure they would survive the truth once it comes out. This book had it all, angst, mystery, twists, love, heartbreak, rebirth, some steamy love scenes and bouts of laugh out loud moments. It was action packed and I found myself holding my breath more then once. You can feel Lily’s heartbreak of being torn, you can feel Kieran’s despair of possibly losing the love of his life, the woman he would die for….and Dare…losing the piece of himself that has been missing and he just found.

I highly recommend you try this series and be prepared for this ride!

“Nothing’s getting past me,” I assured her.
Her breath washed over my lips as I leaned in to kiss her again when she whispered, “I thought we were talking about you.”
I paused for a few seconds, then looked up into her hazel eyes. “What?”
“I think I’m in danger from you.”
My brow pulled tight, and I forced out a low, frustrated laugh. “Me.”
She nodded again, the movement of her head so slow as her eyes explored mine. “I need you to let me go for so many reasons, but I easily forget why when you don’t. I think there was a reason neither of us crossed that invisible barrier before today. Because being in your arms?” She hesitated, her tongue quickly darting out to wet her lips. “Trust me, it’s dangerous.”
A weight pressed down on my chest, making it hard to breathe. Because damn it if she wasn’t right.
There were dozens of girls over the years who’d meant nothing more than a night. Maybe two. Not one could I remember the name of, most I couldn’t remember their face.
Then there’d been one who I would’ve sold my soul for if I could’ve had one more night with her.
My days with her had been everything. A slow burn that had built over time until I hadn’t been able to get enough of her. Until she’d meant too much.
And there hadn’t been a girl since.
Not a second glance. Not a thought. Nothing.
Until one morning at Brooks a few years ago.
But there was nothing slow about the thoughts and needs for the girl pressed against me. There hadn’t been since the very first morning I’d found her staring at a mirror like it had the power to destroy her world. Like that possibility fascinated her.
Fuck, if I didn’t need to find out why.
Dangerous was exactly what we were. Only she had no idea just how much.
My gut twisted as unwanted thoughts entered my mind, but I pushed them away. Because I knew what I needed to do. I needed to let her go and force myself not to follow.
But when there’s a flicker of light in your life after so much darkness, it’s impossible to stay away.
And this girl burned so damn bright.
Calling to me and beckoning me toward her, and I knew no matter how many times I let her slip away, I would follow her just to catch her again.
I brushed my thumb across her full lips. “Goddamn firefly.”

Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland ~Release Tour w/ Reviews

BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE
By Vi Keeland
RELEASE DATE: JULY 17TH

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.

He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend–smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he’d done.

Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.

Only it turned out, the man I’d just told off wasn’t the right guy.

Oops.  My mistake. 

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.

I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?

That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.

Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.

I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.

This was going to be interesting…

Y’all!!! Vi does this every time, she makes me fall for the characters and want more than is offered from the story told. For me there was plenty of swooning, panty melting, laugh out loud moments. I love that Vi always makes strong female characters, and males that are willing to bend for the woman they fall hard for.

Caine West, holy shit ladies!! This dude is hot, slightly cocky, seems to be on the straight and narrow (until you find out what his past used to be), he WILL make you swoon.

Rachel, always running late, in a hurry, hard worker, and horny as hell.

The way these two meet had me laughing out loud, and then the finding out that Caine is her TA is just hilarious. To say they got started off on the wrong foot in a understatement. They work past their first meeting and soon form a fast sexual tension filled student/teacher relationship.

Who will break first? Who can’t fight the innuendos, looks, and tension between them any longer? Oh, you so want to read to find out!! 😉

It’s no shocker that I LOVED Beautiful Mistake. I loved the banter, sexy times, the characters in general, and the storyline between them, and the BIG shocker/twist in the story that I didn’t see coming! I whole heartedly recommend this book, it’s a fabulous summer read!

Ok so I want to start by saying that this book has a pretty big twist in it, which makes writing this review on the hard side. There is so much I want you to know but letting one, teeny, tiny little piece of info out will give too much away. I’m just going to give you the basics which will be similar to the blurb, not because I don’t want to blurt everything out….but it’s definitely a must read and I want you to have the same experience I did.

So, the book started out a little slow for me and was on a slow incline but I kept going. Rachel is in a bar and her drunk BFF points out a guy who recently screwed her over. During a conversation with said jerk, Rachel rips into the guy giving him a piece of her mind! She gives him a tongue lashing accusing him of being a two timer who is married with kids, etc, etc.  He doesn’t seem offended but rather amused by her tantrum.  She does however realize later that the hot guy she just told off…..not the guy who two timed her friend…Case of mistaken identity or rather a drunk friend pointing in the general vicinity of a bunch of guys LOL.

Fast forward to the next day where is to start her first day as a TA at her college and is running late.  One of the very few things she has heard about this professor is that he hates tardiness….she is aware this is not the best way to start this day off.  Yes, you guessed it…hot, married, cheating guy from last night is her professor Caine West.  It is comical to see these two struggling to get through the next few conversations.  At this point I honestly thought ok, so this is gonna be another story of teacher/student (or TA) forbidden love story.  Will someone find out and blackmail them?  Will the school find out and fire him?  Will she lose her TA position?  I figured ehhhh…..not much different from the other 100 books with this storyline.  ONLY……its not.  While a large portion of the book is about their professional relationship and budding personal relationship there is a huge plot twist that literally sneaks up on you and punches you in the face!!

I started to figure it out right before it was said in the book….and wow!  Never saw it coming until literally right before the characters realize it. It was startling to say the least and quickly changed my opinion of this book. I had only wished that the twist had come out earlier….it was so close to the end of the slow moving book that I wanted more.  The chapters of the characters realization and seeing how it played out came too close to the end and I wished it could have been longer!!!  BUT…..all the same, I was riveted and anxious to see how it all plays out!  It is heartwarming and endearing!

There are plenty of sexy hot sex scenes to keep you turning the pages until you start to see where the storyline can be going and once you realize it the pages will fly by.  I loved the slow build up of their connection and their witty banter back and forth. As far as the twist and the end….holy amazeballs!!!  Loved that part of it!!  Definately a must read!
