Excerpt:

“SO YOU’RE GONNA want to keep your toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails under your chest like this,” Dylan said as he lay across the surfboard to show me the basics of his favorite pastime on the secluded stretch of beach. Not that I was paying much attention to the words coming out of his mouth. I was much more interested in the way his muscles flexed beneath the skintight Body Glove wetsuit he wore.

As he pushed himself up into a standing position, my gaze traveled down the broad expanse of his back and down to his ass.

“See how my dominant leg is in the back, and— Ace? Are you paying attention?”

“Mhmm,” I murmured as I bit down on my lower lip and continued my perusal.

Dylan turned to face me, and his hands went to his hips. “Oh yeah?” he said when I looked up. “What did I just say?”

Taking a step forward, I gave him a cocky grin and tugged him off the surfboard and onto the sand until he was flush against me. Then I let my hands roam down over the firm, round muscles of his ass. “Something about being a dominant in the back,” I said, nipping at his lobe. “So why don’t you turn around?”

A groan of frustration left Dylan then, but his head tilted to the side to let my lips trail down his neck. “You’re not gonna feel so cocky when you can’t get up on that board.”

“Oh, I can always get it up, don’t you worry.”

His hands covered my chest and he gently pushed me away. “How about you prove it, hotshot?” Then he pointed to the longboard I’d rented for the weekend. “Why don’t you show me how it’s done.”

“It’s more fun watching you.”

“Ace. Get your ass on that board.”

I squinted in the sun and grinned. “You gonna be this bossy all weekend?”

“If you’re lucky.”

I took a step back so I was by my board, and crossed my arms. I had my wetsuit on, but it was still undone and hanging around my hips while Dylan walked me through this process step by step, and my move had the desired effect. He rubbed a hand up the back of his neck and over his hair, leaving it tousled and oh so sexy.

“What?” I asked. “I’m back on my side of the board.”

“Don’t try and act innocent with me, Locke. I’m trying to teach you a new skill. One that will keep you from hurting yourself. And you’re standing there being all…” He waved his hand up and down, gesturing to my exposed upper body.

“Yes?”

“See. Stop it,” he said, and then pointed to the board. “And zip up that damn wetsuit so I can’t see all your muscles.”

I arched a brow as I moved to slip my arms through the stretchy synthetic material, and when I reached for the zipper and pulled it up to the base of my skull, Dylan groaned.

“Okay, that’s almost worse than no wetsuit.”

“I’m sorry. You’re not checking me out, are you? Because you’re supposed to be paying close attention to teaching me something that could save my life,” I said as I turned around and made a show of bending down to get on the board.

“You having fun right now?” Dylan asked.

“Maybe a little.”

“Yeah, well, let’s hope that holds true when the wave dumps you on your ass.”

I let out a sigh and gripped the board just as he’d told me, because the truth of the matter was, I had never surfed a day in my life. I grew up in Chicago, for God’s sake. But Dylan, with his sun-kissed hair, long, lean body, and eyes the color of the sea, looked right at home with the sun shining down on him as his feet sank into the sand by my head.

“Let’s try this a couple more times here on land, and then we’ll get you out in the water. We won’t have you trying to stand up just yet. But if you can get the hang of at least catching the wave into the shore, we might be able to progress.” He crouched down and said, “Remember, toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails, and then push up.”

As I did as he instructed, I paused in the push-up position and was rewarded when he leaned in and took my lips in a sweet kiss.

“Again,” he whispered, and I moved back down to repeat the move, and this time when I paused, I was rewarded with a deeper kiss. When he pulled away too soon, I grumbled and he laughed, straightening. “Any more of that and we won’t make it into the water. On your feet, Locke, it’s time to hit the waves.”

Are you ready for Ace Locke and Dylan Prescott to walk down the aisle? Ace has proposed and all that is left is setting the date and making wedding plans. With Paige as their wedding planner, things like color schemes, venue and guest list become a priority. Will Paige be able to keep Ace and Dylan on task? And just wait until you see what is in store for their bachelor party!

“I fingered the bottom button of my white linen shirt, and when I pushed it free, Ace shifted in his seat and I smirked. Oh yeah, Ace bossy was something I could never resist, and lucky for me, I knew my guy well enough to know he liked the tease. So I had no problem drawing this out, performing for him. Really, he was perfect for me, and when I reached the top button and moved to shrug the shirt off my shoulders, he shook his head.

‘No. Leave it. I want to undress you.’

Mhmm… yes, match made in heaven.”

I just enjoyed reading the journey toward Ace and Dylan’s wedding. I can’t tell you how many times I found myself just smiling while I was reading and then I’d pause and think…OMG…I’m smiling again! It was so much fun and bringing all of the different characters and personality types together for the Bachelor celebration. I’ll never think of monkeys quite the same way. Even with all of the silly antics of their friends, there were a few emotional scenes that made me say “aw…”. Even when difficult people tried to throw a wrench in their way, Dylan and Ace work together to get through almost any mess. I’m almost sad to let these two walk off into the sunset together. But I guess it’s their time.

Even though Dylan and Ace’s story has closure, I hope we see them pop up every once in a while in other series. I think these two are one of my favorite M/M couples. Ok…I can’t cheat on Logan and Tate. They will always be number one but it’s a close, close contest.

I was so excited for this installment of the Slater Brothers, yes it’s release got pushed back a few times so I was waiting or rather stalking the Authors page somewhat impatiently but life happens and was it worth the wait? Hell yes it was! L. A. Casey never disappoints when it comes to her amazing stories and characters. This novella was about Branna and the ever scrumptious Ryder. Told from Branna’s point of view we get a more in depth view of life since all the craziness of the last book.

Take a pregnant temperamental Branna and a stubborn Ryder and thrown them in a cabin alone and what do you get? Well the drama ensues, as well as the hot sex and a crazy storm. These two were the hardest couple for me to connect with in this series but this book really changed that and it was sweet to see how much they love each other and how great they truly are together.

“I love your body, but I married you because your soul matches mine and because I love you more than life itself .”

Per usual the author also caught us up on what is going on with all the other Slater Brothers and that is one of my favorite things about her books because I love me some Slater brothers! And I always love getting a glimpse of Dominic and Bronagh my favorite couple. Great short read filled with all the elements I’ve come to love about the Slater Brothers. Oh and lots of little Slater babies in this one…can’t wait to read more!

blow-1Bodhi McKnight has always had everything handed to him on a silver platter: fame, success, money, girls. The raven-haired, blue-eyed hottie is the son of Hollywood A-listers, and when he’s asked to join the boy band Virtuous Paradox, his star shoots even higher. But so do expectations, leading Bodhi down a destructive path of addiction—until a drop-dead gorgeous guardian angel shows him her sizzling brand of tough love.

When Bodhi ends up in rehab, he doesn’t expect to meet someone as cool and down-to-earth as Kimberly Gordon. Although he’s enjoyed the company of beautiful, charming women before, none of them have tried to get to know the “real” Bodhi. But Kimberly isn’t fazed by his stardom. She’d rather go horseback riding, teach Bodhi to play guitar, or ask him about his feelings. Soon Bodhi realizes he’s fallen head over heels for her. He just hopes that he’s strong enough to protect what they have from all the pressures and temptations of the outside world.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

This is the first book in the Virtuous Paradox series by Heidi McLaughlin. The story follows Bodhi who basically grew up as Hollywood royalty and is now even more in the spotlight since he is a member of the hottest boy band in the country Virtuous Paradox. Unfortunately Bodhi while trying to navigate through the craziness that comes with being at the top of the music charts and being worshiped by millions everywhere became addicted to drugs, and after an especially crazy night and way to much Blow he lands himself right where he needs to be, rehab.

“ Coming down from my high is really starting to affect me. There’s an ache inside me I can’t explain.”

Bodhi meets Kim when he first steps into rehab, she is assigned to be his patient advocate or a friend for the thirty days he is there. While Bodhi is seeking therapy and wrestling with his demons he is also trying desperately to ignore the attraction he feels towards Kim, who is supposed to be off limits. Kim herself is struggling to try and stay away from Bodhi, but the struggle doesn’t last long and before you know it they are all over each other. Yet there are rules after all, and they aren’t supposed to be fraternizing. But with Bodhi’s release rapidly approaching comes the thought of can they make it together in Bodhi’s fast paced world outside the safe walls of the rehab? Or will thirty days be all they get?

“This is what I needed. I needed her here and in my arms to complete me. To make me feel like I’m on the right path.”

Ok so this book started out pretty well but I did have a bit of a hard time with aspects of the story. While I really enjoy a good bad boy in a band falling in love with the good girl story this was sort of an instant love that just didn’t work and wasn’t all that believable between these two. I just had a hard time connecting with the characters and felt like we weren’t really given enough to get to know them. I felt like parts were just glazed over and where I thought a big part of the story would be Bodhi and his recovery it sort of just got pushed to the side all in the name of love heals all. I mean overall the story was decent and had a lot of potential but I just didn’t love it.

Excerpt

“Oh yeah? What’s that?” Her tone is playful and gives me hope. And I need hope. Not to score with her, but to get through my days.

“You should join me in the shower.” I waggle my eyebrows at her and rub my hand over my abs, pushing up my shirt a little so she can see what’s underneath.

Kim shakes her head, but her smile tells me that she likes the idea. She covers her mouth to stifle a laugh, and I chuckle.
