Title: Right Where I Want You
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 28, 2018
Blurb

There’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and it cuts right through the middle of their office. 

Bad boys? They run right over good girls like Georgina Keller. But after a confidence-shattering breakup, she’s determined not to let anyone at her new workplace push her around—least of all the brooding creative director, a “bad boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1.

Sebastian Quinn’s taste for fast cars, late nights, and beautiful women may have gotten him to the top of a leading New York magazine, but the reputation that made him is suddenly threatening to end his career.

Georgina can help Modern Man shed its bad reputation, but in order to do that, she’ll have to start at the top—and no amount of rakish charm or inconvenient attraction will distract her.

Because if Sebastian gets her right where he wants her, it means she’s going down.

Georgina Keller is the fixer…the one you bring in when the company needs a PR makeover. After a bad breakup, she’s determined to be more of her alter ego “George” and quit letting people walk all over her. Sebastian Quinn has been pegged as the media world’s bad boy. He’s the Creative Director at Modern Man and is proud of its unapologetically macho stories and advice. From day one, these two clash and sparks are flying. Will Georgina be able to fit into this testosterone filled environment and keep things strictly business?

“Maybe I couldn’t help being attracted to Georgina’s hot and cold personality, but acting on it wasn’t an option. Not only was she the first person to threaten my career in a long time, but I’d vowed to remove any ice from my life. It was only warm, nice girls from here on out.”

I don’t know why but there was just something about this business enemies to lovers story that ended up being exactly what I was in the mood for. There was so much chemistry with Sebastian and Georgina’s verbal sparring that I found myself anxiously awaiting for them to cross that line. I also loved that deep down they were both good and genuine people. They both just had trust issues to work through. I was just sucked in by their feisty banter and office politics and it just made it addictive to read. A nice book for my Christmas break.

I’ve enjoyed all of Jessica Hawkins’ stories and find myself enthralled by her characters and their complicated lives. This story definitely ranks right up there with the rest of the amazing stories and intriguing lives she creates.

Excerpt

At the stadium’s concession stand, I took a tall stool, putting Georgina and I at eye level since she stood. “So, why didn’t you kiss François?” I asked. “Bad breath?”
She gasped into her hand. “My breath is fine.”
“I meant his. I’m sure yours is pure relish on a hotdog.”
She made a face. “Gross.”
“I happen to love relish,” I said. “But does François?”
Each time I said François with flourish, she flinched. I didn’t care. Something about him bugged me—I just couldn’t put my finger on it.
“We didn’t kiss because you interrupted us,” she pointed out.
“So? If I were in his position, and we both wanted that kiss, I wouldn’t let anyone stop me.”
Frank and I are clicking,” she said, scowling. “There was even mention of spending time at his summerhouse.”
“Hamptons?”
She coughed into her fist. “Boca Raton.”
The idea of Georgina spending a summer with him in Boca Raton was tragic enough that I almost smiled. I got the sense she was playing up the date. If it was so great, why wasn’t she sitting here with him? And why was I more relieved than smug about that? “Meanwhile, Justin and I will be clamming in Montauk.”
“You two should really just make it official and announce your love to the world.”
“But then I wouldn’t get to flirt with pretty girls.”
“For someone who pretends to have as much game as you,” she said, “I still haven’t seen you successfully flirt with any girls since I’ve known you.”
I smirked. “How do you know I’m not flirting with you right now?”

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.

This book has been nothing short of perfection! I devoured it. Belle Aurora has completely ripped apart my happy little heart and put it back together again. To say Twitch and Lexis story is one of the best I have EVER read is a complete understatement. I love them. To see that their story is complete makes me sad but this series will be one I reread for years to come. The angst, tension, and feels had me all messed up. I would be crying mad one chapter and the next I would be swooning. So many ups and downs, twists and turns. Addicting as hell! Do not miss out on this series. It’s one of the best ever.

Pretty Little Player by J. Kenner ~ Release Blitz

Pretty Little Player, a sexy, new standalone from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner, is available now!

PLP-full wrap-promo use only.jpg

Bedroom games are fine … but I need a woman who won’t play with my heart.

After years in the military, I’ve faced down a lot of things, and there’s not much I shy away from. Except relationships. Because when you catch your wife in bed with another man, that tends to sour even the most hardened man against women.

When I was hired to keep surveillance on a woman with a checkered past, I went into the job anticipating the worst. But what I found was a woman who turned my head. Who made my blood heat and my body burn. A woman who made me feel alive again.

A woman who was nothing like what I expected, but everything I wanted. A woman who, it turned out, needed my protection. And wanted my touch.

And as the world fell out from under us, and everything I thought I knew shifted, there was only one reality I could hold onto—that the more I got to know her, the more I wanted her.

But if I’m going to make her mine, I’ll have to not only keep her safe, I’ll have to prove to her that I’ve conquered my own fears and doubts. That I’m done looking into the past, and that all I want is a future—with her.

“911. What is your emergency?”

Every night, Zara Llewelyn picks up the phone and assists people in distress. House fires. Assault. Motor vehicle accidents. Home invasions…

Between the hours of six and two, she is the answer to a thousand cries for help. But when the payphone outside Zara’s apartment building mysteriously begins ringing night after night, the very last thing she wants to do is pick it up. And yet, she can’t seem to help herself…

Pasha Rivin’s trying to outrun fate. He’s been running from it for years now, but escape isn’t in his cards. As the oldest son of the oldest Roma family in the country, he’s not just a member of a proud and fiercely traditional clan. He is their reluctant king…and now he’s expected to find a wife.

The fiery redhead that shows up on his doorstep, following a trail of breadcrumbs, hunting for a missing little boy, is the last person Pasha’s mother has in mind, however.

She’s an outsider, an intruder, and as far as his family are concerned, she’s not welcome on their land, let alone in their king’s bed.

Pasha has never allowed his destiny to stand in the way of what he wants, however. And he’s never wanted anything more than he wants the girl with the burning green eyes.

***

Zara Llewelyn picked up the phone and learned a secret.

Falling in love has never been so dangerous…

Across the Horizon by Aly Martinez ~ Release Blitz

“Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair.

I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouth-watering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike.

Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine—or six.

Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it…

So does heartbreak.

After finding out her husband of seven years was cheating on her, Rita Laughlin just wants to find herself. She feels like her identity was all wrapped up in her husband when Tanner Reese basically comes to her rescue and helps her save face. There is undeniable attraction between these two but after separating from her husband, Rita wonders if it’s too soon to start something with Tanner who she feels is the perfect man. What would he want with someone ordinary like Rita?

“He was so cliché. We’d been together for nine years, married for seven and the fact that he wasn’t in love with her was supposed to somehow make an affair acceptable? Forget that I was dying inside. Forget that, since I’d first laid eyes on him, I had never considered being with another man. Forget that I’d given him my entire life. Every hope. Every dream. Every want. Every desire. And he’d thrown them all away for a piece of ass.”

I was so excited when I realized that this was Porter’s brother Tanner! I pretty much squealed out loud! I needed to know what was going on between Tanner and Rita. Poor Rita. It really tore my heart open with how callous her husband was about cheating on her and how she should just be able to forgive him and move forward. I was glad that Rita was able to get angry and stand up for herself. And Tanner…omg that man. He really had a bottomless bucket of patience to be willing to wait for Rita to be ready. This story was all about when you find love looking for you, it doesn’t wait for the perfect time. When your lives are all perfectly aligned…no…love has its own time table and if you aren’t willing to accept it…you just might miss your happily ever after.

Thank you for a wrap up to one that blended perfectly with Charlotte and Porter’s story. I fell in love with Tanner while watching them fall in love and I just grew to love him more in his own book. He was a character that just was begging to have his own happy ever after.

EXCERPT

I shifted the phone to my other ear and asked her, “Did you just get in bed?”

“If, by bed, you mean carrying a glass of wine out back to swing in the hammock, maybe.”

I bit my bottom lip, my head falling back against the headrest. For most men, this would have been an innocuous statement. But for a hammock connoisseur like myself, this was the normal guy equivalent of her saying that she liked to give blowjobs during halftime.

“You have a hammock out back?”

There was a delay in her response, which was followed by a subtle kiss of her lips on what I assumed was a wine glass. “Don’t knock it until you try it. It’s one of the most underrated luxuries in outdoor furniture.”

“Oh, I’m not knocking anything. Rope or quilted?”

“Mayan, actually.”

“Oh, sweet heavenly baby Jesus, she’s beautiful and knows her hammocks. I’ve never been so turned on in my life.”

She giggled, pausing for another sip. “You know, if you leaked this hammock fetish to the press, you could probably increase demand by five million percent and singlehandedly lower the country’s unemployment rate.”

Okay, so at some point during the day, she’d figured out who I was.

But! Even with this knowledge, she was trying to avoid a date with me and was not elbow-deep in planning our televised wedding. This was a definite plus in my book.

“Yeah, but then, when I talked to beautiful women like yourself, I’d have no idea if the hammock was your idea or a ploy to impress me.”

“Jeez, that’s sad, Tanner,” she said, her sweet Southern accent like a wave rolling over my name.

I’d meant it as a joke, but it was the absolute truth when it came to dating. Early on in my career, I’d done a rapid-fire interview about my personal life. One of the questions had been: What would your ideal woman order on the first date? Truth be told, the only thing I hoped my ideal woman would order was something she wanted. I didn’t factor into that. But I’d been on my last question in my last interview of the last day of a month-long press tour. My face had hurt from fake smiling, I’d been in desperate need of a shower, a smoke, and sleep, and my mind had been mush, so I’d prattled off the first thing that had come to mind: shrimp and grits.

That one little answer somehow made it onto my Wiki page, and after that, every woman I’d taken out ordered shrimp and grits. One of them even had a shellfish allergy and nearly ended up in the hospital. And this insanity was not limited to women outside of the spotlight.

I’d once gone on a date with America’s princess of pop, Levee Williams. We’d hit it off at a charity event. For one of the most famous women in the world, she was a surprisingly nice girl, gorgeous, and funny as all get out. But the first time I took her out? One guess what she ordered.

I was at the end of my rope with dating and lost my freaking mind before storming out like an asshole. That night, as I was reporting shrimp and fucking grits as an error to Wiki, I noticed that her page listed it as her favorite food. I’d never had the balls to contact her again, and I once hid behind a palm tree on Rodeo Drive when I heard the clamoring of paparazzi calling her name. But that’s neither here nor there.

In short, while finding a woman was all too easy, dating was hard.

But that wasn’t about to stop me from trying with Rita.

Where Bad Boys are Ruined by Holly Renee ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review & Giveaway!

Release Date: December 5, 2018

Cover Design: Artist Regina Wamba

Synopsis

I ate leftover cupcakes and cracked macarons for breakfast.

I was ninety percent sure he simply ate up girls like me.

I was covered in paint splatters, cake batter, and sweat the first time I met him.

He was covered in badass tattoos and a smile that seemed to hold a secret I would never figure out.

Rule number 1 was never, under any circumstances, fall for the man who I wrote my lease check to.

So, I tucked him away in the “Fantasize Only” compartment of my brain and called it a day.

But he didn’t make it easy.

He was arrogant, funny, and the biggest flirt I had ever met.

Most of the time, I didn’t know if I was just a game to him.

If I didn’t know better, I’d say he was on a mission to ruin my life.

And maybe my heart, too.
