Stolen Tyme by S.L. Ziegler ~Release Blitz w/ Review & Excerpt

 BLURB

Time doesn’t heal.
Time hurts.
Makes you stronger, rougher,
And smarter.
Now that I’m back,
Xavier Scott can’t hurt me again,
Won’t hurt me.
I’ve seen my share of pain,
Felt it,
Owned it,
And released it.
After one look,
One touch,
One tremble,
And I’m that broken, naive girl again.
I want him,
My body aches for him,
My soul needs him.
But, my head will be damned to fall for that again,
Fall for X.
He stole my heart before,
But not this tyme.

This is a first time read for me by this author. I really enjoyed the writing style a lot. There was a lot going on. Not that its a bad thing. It worked out very well in the ending. Which is amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

Naomi is a young woman but she has an old soul. I loved this the most about her. I connected with that part of her very much. Shes relatable to most women. Not some character that is so far fetched and perfect you cant relate to. I will be completely honest that I may have swooned more for her than I did X. This woman is brave and fierce. She has her dreams. She has her goals. And she meets every one and surpasses it. I loved her!

X. I wanted to punch him in the balls numerous times. Don’t get me wrong I loved him but man did he do some stupid stuff. If only he would have pulled his head out of his ass a lot of the craziness wouldn’t have happened. BUT…. it was worth it in the end. Hes an amazing father. Hes a great musician. Hes even a great lover. DAMN!

This was a good read. I fell in love with the taboo story and couldn’t get enough. Definitely one you don’t want to pass up, that’s for sure. ENJOY!

 

EXCERPT

Taking a deep breath, I open the door. I pop open my mouth, only to close it just as fast. My vision goes to Naomi’s face, with her stage makeup caked on, but her hair down, falling over her shoulders. In waves. Begging me to wrap my hand around it.

But that’s not what does me in.

Not even in the slightest.

Naomi is in a bra and panties.

Nothing else.

Black lace bra and see through panties at that.

I’m in heaven—I’m in holy hell.

“Oh lord, X, I thought you were Penny.” She’s breathless, but makes zero attempt to cover herself up.

Lord, strike me dead or help a brother out. Because either way, I’m fucked.

Royally.

I drop the flowers over the bulge in my pants and gather strength to speak without my voice cracking like a twelve-year-old boy. “Do you open the door like that to everyone?”

“What if I did?” She props her hands on hips, and each time her chest moves, the piercings in her nipples catch the light like a fire—a fire that is spreading over me.

“I would say I need to knock on your door more often.”

Every single goddamn day. Every damn hour. Every damn minute. Naomi is my damn angel standing right in front of me.

“I think you knocked on my door two times too many. Where’s Charlie?”

“The hovering was driving her nuts, so she called Hadley for a sleepover.”

She raises her brow, but a grin plays on her lips. Naomi’s happy I’m here. “Why are you here?”

Clearing my throat over the emotions trying to get out, I take a stab at a conversation. “I wanted to give you these and tell you I enjoyed the show.”

Naomi eyes the flowers, the grin turning into a smirk. “Why are you really here?”

Swallowing deeply, I feel my Adam’s apple bob in my throat. “To see if you wanted to go on a date with me.”

A date. A real one where I don’t have to hide her from anyone or keep her a secret. A date that’s seven years too late.

I’m so fucking addicted to her, all that she does, the way she moves.

Everything.

“Why?”

“Because I want to?” It comes out as a question, only I didn’t want it to.

“No.”

“Yes, just one.”

“Xavier, we’ve tried to make this into something it clearly wasn’t. Why would we try to do that again?”

I take a step closer to her. “It’s not clear from my side. I think about you all the time.”

Every day.

Every second.

“You think about what’s between my legs, nothing more.”

I stare into her dark brown eyes, and with every breath she takes, I know her words are just a shield she’s using to protect herself. “It’s much more than that…so much more. I think about your tits, your moans, your screams. Don’t get me wrong, the sex is good.”

“Good?”

Another inch closer to her, and her chest moves rapidly.

“Fucking eye rolling, teeth clenching, earth splitting in two, fantastic. But that’s not the only thing I want. I want you. Your brain, the conversations. You. It’s you. That help your pride any?”

“Yes.”

“Can I tell you something?”

“Yes.”

“I want you. In more ways than I can count.” Another step closer, I now tower over her.

EEEEP! I loved this book. The constant teasers on social media kept me hooked even before I was able to read. Let me just say I was not disappointed! AT ALL!!! I loved the story and I really freakin loved that my NFL team was a highlight. This was a great sports romance with a little angst and a little tension.

Kadence is such a doll! I love her. Shes honest, sassy, and super fun. But most of all shes loyal. She doesn’t need everyones approval. She just wants to just BE. She didn’t expect to run into a sexy as sin freight train and her life as she knew it change. But she welcomed it with open arms for the most part. I loved how up front she was about things. Not afraid to put out there how she feels and what she expects from a man.

Tyler. Lawd have mercy!! I loveeeeee him! Hes so passionate. But hes also a young man. He looks out for his family no matter the cost. And he damn sure knows how to treat a lady. And he plays football. Really, whats not to love? Even when things are getting tough he still manages to get what he wants. Just maybe not in the way he wanted to get it. I will be honest, at first I was a little worried. He was cocky and it was looking like he would turn out to be a jackass. But things changed quickly and I couldn’t get enough of him.

This was a great read! I loved it hard. The characters are definitely compatible and work so well together. The story was great! Definitely not one you want to miss. And I can not wait for more from this series.

And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can’t forget.

Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?

How is it possible that every book I read of Kristen Proby’s I fall in love with? Honestly!! I have been a big fan of this series since the first book sucked me in and each book so far has been amazing! I love the friendship between the women and their own personal stories of how they are finding their one and only soulmates. Before I get into my review let me just say that this book could be read as a standalone but don’t do that— read the entire series-you will fall in love with these characters.

So Blush for Me gives us the story of Kat and Mac. Kat works at Seduction with her best friends and has such a way about her that you can’t help but fall in love with her. Her persona, quick wit, and loyalty makes her a independent woman who isn’t afraid to take on anything-except flying! Kat meets Mac on a plane ride where he successfully helps her handle the trip. It just happens that they are off to the same place where they are able to get to know one another and par take in what Kat’s friends told her that she needs- a “sexcation.” Thinking that after their time together it would be the end as they both said this couldn’t be anything more-Kat and Mac enjoyed each other as much as they could. Little did either of them know that their little sexcation- would be brought back home to them when Mac turns up at Seduction. Both of them can’t deny that chemistry isn’t the only thing that these two have in common. Will Kat and Mac be able to allow their feelings to be explored and open their hearts to a possibility of real lasting love?

As only Kirsten Proby does she tells the story that grips your heart and attention from the very first chapter. I always find myself lost in her books and not wanting to get found. Kristen has a true gift with the way she tells a story. I am already looking forward to reading this book again and going back to the other books in this series and rereading them as well.

 

Excerpt

“Are you going to tell me where we’re going?”

“You haven’t guessed?”

“Well, I’m assuming the beach, but there are lots of those on the Oregon coast.”

“Cannon Beach,” he replies. “I own a condo there.”

“No way. That’s my favorite beach.”

“Good.” He smiles, then glances down at the Kindle in my lap. “I’m always the one reading to you. Let’s change it up. Read to me for a while.”

“Okay.” I turn it on and begin to read. This is a romantic suspense, but I’d just started reading the sexy part when he interrupted me. So, I pick up where I left off, describing a very detailed sex scene in a shower. This author is explicit with her language, and I glance over to see Mac’s hands white-knuckled on the wheel.

“Do you want me to stop reading?”

“You’re fucking killing me,” he growls. “But keep going.”

My lips twitch, and then he says, “And the shower is now on my list for this weekend.”

“Oh, good.” I chuckle, then continue reading. The hero lifts the heroine and pins her against the wall of the shower, and it’s hot.

I think I’m starting to sweat.

I quickly learn that this suspense novel is heavy in the sexy department. It seems they’re having sex on every other page, but that could just be because Mac and I are in a confined space, and I want him.

Now.

I’ve wanted him since I woke up this morning.

He reaches over and rubs his hand up and down my inner thigh. His little finger grazes over the sensitive skin this close to my pussy, and my voice catches as I struggle to keep reading.

“Are we there yet?”

“Keep reading,” he says, his voice rough. I do as he says, and he keeps his hand on my thigh, setting my skin on fire.

“Mac,” I finally say in desperation. “I can’t read this stuff to you when you’re touching me like that.”

“I didn’t ask,” he replied, and it only makes me hotter. That look in his eyes, the hardness in his voice, makes me nuts.

So I keep reading, and try to ignore his hand, which is completely impossible. Because this is Mac we’re talking about, and he might be the sexiest thing ever invented.

Ever.

Finally, we pull up to a building and he cuts the engine. We both clamor out of the car and rush to his door.

“We’ll get our things later,” he says as he fits the key in the lock.

“Good plan.”

DIRTY FILTHY RICH MEN by Laurelin Paige ~Excerpt Reveal

SBPR-DFRM-EXCERTREVEAL.jpg

Dirty Filthy Rich Men, an all-new contemporary romance from NYT Bestseller Laurelin Paige is coming March 27th!

dirtyfilthyfinal

Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige
Publication Date: March 27th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

From NYT Bestselling author Laurelin Paige, discover a whole new world filled with sex, love, power, romance and dirty, filthy rich men.

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.

I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn’t stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

And then what it was like to lose it.

Ten years later, I’ve found my way back. Back to their world. Back to him.

This time, I’m ready. I’ve been down this road before, and I know all the dirty, filthy ways Donovan will try and wreck me.

But it’s hard to resist. Especially when I know how much I’ll like it.

Excerpt:

After she was gone, I walked over to the windows and drank in the scene. The Town Center was high enough that it had an unblocked view of downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, and beyond.

Giddiness surged through me, starting like a pinprick at my center and moving out through my veins in all directions until even my fingers and toes felt warm.

I was really here.

I made it.

It wasn’t the way I thought it would be, but in the end, it still came out of my time at Harvard. I’d always known that connections made the difference in a career, and here I was. Finally. At the top of the world, looking out.

I couldn’t stop grinning.

“It’s incredible, isn’t it?” a male voice came from behind me.

Still smiling, I glanced up and caught his reflection in the window.

And everything disappeared.

The world that had buzzed below, the beautiful scene, the excitement that had unfurled through my body—all of it evaporated and all that existed in its place was a pale, hollow shell of myself and the man in the perfectly tailored suit behind me.

I turned to look at him directly. Our gazes smashed together, and my legs nearly fell out from under me.

“Donovan,” I rasped. It was a miracle that I managed to find enough voice to say that much.

And there was so much more that had to be said. So much more that I hadn’t prepared for. Which was ridiculous since I’d talked to him so many times in my head over the years, practiced so many conversations, but never did he show up out of the blue looking so dastardly handsome in a dark gray three-piece suit, his face rugged with scruff, his eyes hazel and earnest despite the playful smirk on his lips.

I opened my mouth to say something, but nothing came out. I wasn’t even sure how to breathe anymore.

He broke our gaze to nod out the window at the skyline, walking toward me as he said, “I’m sure you found the Empire.”

Though his focus was now on the scenery, I didn’t take my eyes off him as he approached. He didn’t stop until he was right beside me. So close our shoulders would touch if I coughed. Tension ran off him like foam spilling over from a mug of beer. Good tension. Bad tension. I wasn’t sure if there was a difference when it came to Donovan.

Which was why I was screwed if he was here.

Why the hell was he here?

“I thought you were in Tokyo.” I couldn’t stop staring at him. He’d gotten more refined with age, and rougher at the same time. His hair was short and his curls gone, giving him a polished look he lacked before. The lines by his eyes were more defined and his expression seemed harder than I’d remembered. It made him sexier.

As if he was a man who needed to be sexier than the one I knew.

“I came back two months ago,” he said offhandedly. “That’s it right there.” He leaned his face in close to mine as he pointed to the famous structure. “Do you see it?”

Fuck if I cared about the Empire. I was in Donovan Kincaid’s orbit. What else was there in the world?

The Wright Brother by K.A. Linde ~Blog Tour w/ Review

TWB Amazon

I’d dated his brother.

He didn’t remember and I wish I could forget.

I may have sworn off the Wright family a long time ago. But when I returned home, Jensen Wright crashed into my life with the confidence of a billionaire CEO and the sex appeal of a god. Even I couldn’t resist our charged chemistry, or the way he fit into my life like a missing puzzle piece.

Too bad he’d forgotten the one thing that could destroy us.

Because Jensen Wright doesn’t share. Not with anyone. And if his brother finds out, this could all go down in flames.

When it all was said and done, was he the Wright brother?

Emery has moved back home after she discovers her boyfriend is cheating on her. This isn’t how she pictured her life going. When she runs into her ex-boyfriend’s brother at his family’s wedding, sparks kind of fly. Especially when he doesn’t realize who she is. Maybe a hookup is what they both need even though that’s not something Emery does. Jensen has other plans though and somehow things go awry when the two can’t seem to stay away from each other.

“But none of those relationships or pseudo relationships had ever had a guy who wanted to talk about what he wanted to do to me. To count the ways that he wanted to f*ck me and then follow through.

Jensen Wright wanted to f*ck me.

He wanted to use my mouth and body all night.

And I was perfectly fine with letting him.”

Holy sexual tension, Batman! After reading this story all I can say is where is my Wright brother? Emery has sworn off the Wright family after a high school romance with Landon but when she catches Jensen’s eye, will she be able to resist the Wright moves? Jeez Emery has already caught two brothers’ eyes. Is that fair? Think of the starving um…ok. Going to PG this down. This book was crazy hot. I pretty much loved the siblings and their relationship. I love that we have two more brothers that we are going to get stories about. This story was fun to read and I could hardly put it down.

I’ve been a fan of K.A. Linde’s writing for a long time. If you haven’t picked up one of her books and like a steamy romance with a side of angst thrown in there, you’ll love this one. I am counting down to get the details on another Wright brother!

Barrett

The name’s Barrett Callahan. Yeah, that Barrett Callahan—the one the press dubbed “Bare” after those naked sexting pictures surfaced. At twenty-five, I was armed with an MBA from Harvard, an executive position at my father’s Fortune 500 company, a penthouse, and a different piece of delectable eye candy in my bed every weekend. I had a life most men dreamed of. But then my father decided to run for president, and my playboy lifestyle became a liability to his campaign that was built on family values. My “makeover” comes in the form of a fake fiancée who I don’t even get to choose–one who is an uptight, choirgirl acting priss but also sexy-as-hell.

Addison

My latest relationship had gone down in flames, and I was drowning in a sea of student loans when in true Godfather status, James Callahan made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Seven figures for seven months on the campaign trail pretending to be the adoring fiancée of his son, Barrett. As soon as he won the election, our engagement would be dissolved amicably for the press, I was free to ride off into the sunset a million dollars richer, and because of the NDA, no one would be the wiser. Sure, I’d never met the guy, but I’d been a theater nerd in high school. I could pull off any role from Lady Macbeth to Maria Von Trapp. But that was before I met my fake fiancé—the infuriating, self-absorbed, egotistical, drop-dead-sexy King of the Manwhores.

Playboy Barrett Callahan is a liability in his father’s presidential campaign. His naked pictures have shown up on the internet and he never stays with the same woman very long. When his father secures campaign worker Addison to play his fake fiancée, it’s like oil and water. These two don’t mix well. Addison isn’t going to let little “bear” (who actually names their penis?!) out to play during this agreement. Will his dad actually win this campaign or will Addison and Barrett end up throttling each other before the race is over?

“Holy. Shit.

Barrett Callahan was one hell of a kisser. His lips had the combustive ability to melt your thong right off while simultaneously sending a rushing geyser between your legs. But that wasn’t just his lips. It was the feel of his hard, muscled body pressing against mine, and the way his fingers tangled through the strands of my hair, slightly tugging on the ends. I loved a good hair pulling from time to time. Most of the guys I knew took a little while to work up to it. But not Barrett.”

What a cute romance with how they go from tolerating each other to the slow burn of attraction. This was a quick, fun read for me with quite a few parts that made me laugh out loud. Barrett comes across as the most egotistical, narcissistic prick when he and Addison’s meet for the first time. His first priority seems to be the next woman he gets to pound. Addison is rebounding from an asshole ex who cheated on her so her trust level is at about zero. What they can’t seem to fight even though they bicker constantly is the hint of attraction between them. Now this isn’t a panty scorcher. They aren’t burning up the sheets or anything. But it has some snarky conversation and Barrett starting to show his true character and redeeming qualities. Like I said…it’s a cute political storyline with romance hiding out and taking them by surprise.

I can’t believe this is my first Katie Ashley book! I think I’ve been under a rock. I’ve bought her books and after this one I need to make them a higher priority. Shame on me!

Sweet Rivalry by K. Bromberg ~Blog Tour w/ Review & Excerpt

SWEET RIVALRY - Tour banner

 

 

sweetrivRyder Rodgers had a plan.

He was going to stride into the conference room, do the required song and dance over the next five days, and win the biggest contract of his career. But when he walked in and heard the voice of one of his competitors, all his plans were shot to hell.

Harper Denton. She was always on top. In college. First in their class. Always using every advantage to edge him out to win the coveted positions. The only one who could beat him. His academic rival. More like a constant thorn in his side. And his ego’s.

When he heard her voice, he was brought back to years before. To the bitter taste of being second best. But the woman who meets his gaze is nothing like the drab wallflower he used to know. Hell no. She was all woman now: curves, confidence, and staggering sex appeal. And no doubt, still brilliant.

The fact that she’s gorgeous and bright won’t distract him. This time, Ryder’s determined to be the one on top. But not if Harper can help it.

Sweet Rivalry by K. Bromberg is super fun, sexy, and cool story that leaves with a huge satisfied grin on your face! I knew going into this book that it wasn’t going to be a super long story and damn I wanted more! Don’t get me wrong the story is complete I am just selfish in the sense that I could read K. Bromberg all day every day and never tire of it. So,,,Sweet Rival is the story of Harper and Ryder…and can we just take a moment to appreciate how hot those names are! Seriously! Well, Harper and Ryder have known each other and have been competitors with one another since they were in school together. Being a competitive person myself I know the feeling that there is no better reward then beating out competition especially when they are the opposite sex. Little does Harper and Ryder know that after seeing each other for the first time in over 10 years that once friendly school time competition has turned into a full blown sexual tension lust filled competitive bid for their respective companies.

I loved the banter between the two characters and honestly it was like listening to old friends go back and forth. I loved that while being hard core and no nonsense at times Harper was also a bit insecure, for me it made her more real and vulnerable. Ryder is sexy, funny, and honestly a great book boyfriend and I want more of him! When you read his description and visualize it—-YUMMY!!!!! Seriously he has girls shaking at the knees!

This book in true K. Bromberg fashion has it all! Regardless of what K. Bromberg writes it is pure magic on paper! Do yourself a HUGE favor- and one click it. You will finish it in one sitting and wont regret it!

Excerpt

Work first. Reward sex next.

That’ll give me something to look forward to during the next few days. The ones I can’t wait to dive headfirst into that will be an ever-changing combination of stress, exhaustion, strategy, and manipulation. An unscripted dance amongst us bidders while we size each other up, calculate our numbers, and explain to the developer why we’re the most valuable candidate for the job.

It’s the game I love. The competition I thrive on. My return to the job that I’ve been desperate to make.

And there’d be no better way to make a statement that Harper Denton is back than to leave this building with the multimillion dollar contract for Meteor Development tucked securely under my arm.

And just like that, as a reward for my positive thinking, when I look up, there he is, in full view.

I take in the expensive briefcase, the venti Starbucks, and the expensive watch peeking out from beneath the cuff of his shirt. And just my luck that while I’m afforded a full view of his body, the one thing I’m the most curious about is obscured by his hand holding his cell phone up to his ear: his face.

So instead I drink him in. He really is magnificent. I note his posture and the way he carries his body when he moves forward a few steps. There’s an air about him that says he’s no-nonsense and in control, powerful, and at the same time he doesn’t seem uptight. He has that Southern

California professional vibe. I can’t put my finger on it but he reminds me of someone I can’t quite place. Regardless, a man who can pull off being in control and playful has definite merits.

Like “spank me until my body aches in want, and then make a game of hitting each erogenous zone with his tongue before he’ll satisfy that ache he created and let me come” type of merits.

The mind-blowing-sex reward just became even more appealing.
