Suck This

Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: September 13, 2022

 

About the Book

Blood, sex and alcohol.

 

That was what Club Worth was all about.

 

Ever since vampires had come out to the world, people had been obsessed. Take a walk on the wild side and see what the nightclub was all about.

 

Acadia Powell, on the other hand, didn’t do vampires. Nor did she do messy.

 

What she did do was stay away from people like Constantine Worth, Master of the City, and the most gorgeous man in the history of men. It didn’t matter that he had hypnotizing eyes, beautiful lips, and the sexiest body she’d ever had the privilege of laying eyes on.

 

It should be easy for her to stay away, but with each subsequent encounter, it’s becoming harder and harder to fight the growing need inside of her.

 

***

 

Constantine Worth knew that Acadia was off limits. Not only was she human and not willing to slum it with the undead, but she was also the baby sister of the city’s chief of police. The man that liked to arrest him every other day and twice on Sunday.

 

He should hate her based solely on the last name she shared with her brother. Yet each time he sees her, he forgets that he’s supposed to be playing nice. She sets his blood to boil, and each time she lets the verbal slurs flow, he finds it harder and harder to maintain his distance.

 

Soon, he will have to make a choice. Maintain his upstanding relationship with human law enforcement, or take what he wants, and damn the consequences.

5 out of 5 stars

Suck This is a new paranormal vampire romance by Lani Lynn Vale. I read everything Lani writes, so I didn’t hesitate to grab this one. While it has that signature Lani feel and vibe, it’s different enough to suck you in with the vampires! I love vampires so I really enjoyed this. Constantine and Acadia have chemistry, attraction and something deeper. He’s not just a vampire, he’s the Master of the City, and she’s human. But even though the existence of vampires is new for the world, she doesn’t hate them like a lot of people. And she can’t seem to stay away from him. From the minute Con saves Acadia, she has a target on her back. Now they are both in danger. Con will do anything and everything to protect Acadia. Even the one thing he shouldn’t do. Oh boy! I really loved it! Con was funny, sexy and powerful. Acadia is stubborn, strong and interesting. I loved her brothers and his best friends. Hoping we get all their stories too!

Blog Tour & Review – Bitter Sweet Heart, H. Hunting

September 6, 2022 | Posted in Blog Tour, Review | By

“A book that tells a story … a beautifully brilliant, powerful story about love and pain; trauma and forgiveness and discovering your truth while finding your place in the world.” ~Denise, Shh Mom’s Reading®

Bitter Sweet Heart, a forbidden hockey romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting, is now available!

From the outside looking in, I live a charmed life: hockey legend for a father, my own promising future in the league, a great family, awesome friends. It’s not untrue, but it’s not quite that simple either.

My dad’s advice has always been to make hockey my number-one priority—at least until I make it to the pros. So, going into my senior year of college, I have a plan. I’ll put in the effort required to pass my classes, play hockey like my life depends on it, and avoid relationships. All I have to do is stay focused on the end game, and I’ll walk away with a degree and into a career in the NHL.

It should be easy.

But when a woman literally floats into my dock, just before summer ends and my senior year begins, I can’t resist one last hookup. What harm could a one-night stand do? It’s not like we even exchanged numbers.

Everything is fine until I run into her on campus.

It’s a big school. I should be able to avoid her.

Except she happens to be in my class.

And she’s not a student.

She’s my professor.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Bitter Sweet Heart is the second book in the Lies, Hearts & Truths series by H. Hunting. This is the second generation from the Pucked and All In series’ and I’m still weeping with joy from knowing we’re getting their stories. We met Maverick in Little Lies and this is his story. It’s emotional, fun, sexy and more than I ever hoped for. Maverick is Alex and Violet’s son and Lavender’s (Little Lies) brother. Maverick is going into his senior year of college, already an NHL hopeful. A fling at the end of summer is just what he needed. But when the semester starts and his fling is now his professor, things get tricky. Clover never thought she’d see the younger man she was with before school started in her class. What are the chances? They have an undeniable connection, but one they can’t act on while he’s her student. Clover quickly learns that Maverick isn’t your typical college hockey player. He’s so much more. Maverick is an old soul, much wiser than his age. He’s still haunted by things from his childhood, things that he’s blaming himself for. Things that were absolutely not his fault. Even though they can’t be together, they can’t seem to escape each other. A few coincidental meetings just make them want each other more. While Maverick is fighting to stay away from his professor, he’s trying to deal with the stress of what he really wants to do with his life. He’s always doing things for others, protecting them, helping them, just being there for them. But he forgets to do things for himself. What does he want? Where does he want to be? For some reason, Clover seems to ground him. She understands him and wants to help him see what a great man he is. How he needs to think about what he wants and what he needs. I could not love Maverick more if I tried. He’s such a good, caring man who is always thinking about other people. He’s considerate and funny and sexy. After years he finally has the hard conversations he’s been avoiding and realizes things about his family and himself that help him decide what he really wants to do with his life. (And those conversations had me bawling my eyes out!) I loved seeing Kody, Lavender and of course Alex and Violet. I’m even more excited about BJ’s story now! Overall, it was a fun, emotional ride. I laughed, cried and had to fan myself. Maverick is just one of those characters you wish were real because he’s such a good human. He restores your faith in humanity and makes you believe.

 

Keep reading for a look inside Bitter Sweet Heart!

When seven o’clock arrives, I introduce myself and explain that I’ll be taking over for Professor Connelly. I field a few questions and reassure the students that he’s okay. I also brought in a get well soon card for them to sign. I pass it to the student directly in front of me, then pull up my attendance list and start calling names.

The door opens when I’m halfway through, and a student straggles in. It happened in my English class earlier, but in a class of three hundred students, it’s easier to slip in the back door and quietly find a seat. That’s what I expect this student to do.

Except his phone starts ringing. And it’s not a normal ringtone. It’s a song blaring through the room at full volume.

“Fuck. Shit.” He’s standing in the middle of the room, facing the back of the class, every single student staring at him in wide-eyed horror.

He rummages around in his pocket and pulls out the offending device as Justin Bieber croons “I’m so fucking lonely” to the entire class. Instead of silencing it, he answers the call—on speaker.

A male voice that sounds like an angry father starts yelling. “Why the hell am I getting calls about you being late for practice, you’re—”

He spins around, gaze moving over the class as he takes in their looks of horror. He’s wearing a baseball cap, and the lights above cast a shadow over his face. “Oh, fuck me,” he mutters. “Hey, Dad, I’m in the middle of class. I’ll call you back later.” He rushes the words, so it all sounds quite garbled. Then he drops into the closest empty desk and slams his elbow on the edge on his way down. He sucks in a groan.

I give the student a look that I hope conveys how unimpressed I am. “Are you quite done?” I’m ready to go off on him, but he raises a hand and knocks his hat off his head.

“Uh, sorry, Professor. I think I might be in the wrong class.” His eyes dart around the room. “Or maybe not?”

“Professor Connelly is out for back surgery. Professor Sweet is taking over the class,” the student beside him says.

“Oh shit.” His vibrant green gaze, ringed in hazel, meets mine.

All the air leaves my lungs on a whoosh. The room tilts, and I’m suddenly light-headed. I can tell instantly that he recognizes me, and the silence in the room is deafening. Fortunately, he fills it by rambling out an explanation.

“Sorry about the phone call. And for being late. Coach kept me after practice and my dad’s on my ass because I had a bad game. I’m so sorry, Cl—” He clasps his hands in front of him and bites his lips together.

“Don’t let it happen again.”

My mouth feels like it’s full of cotton, and the rest of me feels disconnected from my body. Because this student, sitting in the middle of my sophomore class, is my summer fling.

My one-night stand who left behind an origami crane and a lot of memories I wish I could now erase.

New Release & Review – Never Look Back, A.L. Jackson

September 5, 2022 | Posted in New Release, Review | By

Never Look Back

An Enemies-to-Lovers, Close-Proximity, Second-Chance Romance from A.L. Jackson

Available Now on Amazon and Free with Kindle Unlimited

“The spice was on point and the romance was swoony. A total must read.”

– The Boho Book Blogger

“This amazing story is dark and decadent, with the past never really being all it seems.

I loved his fierceness and his determination to make the past right again, with just enough Alpha attitude to give him a “lickable” edge.”

-Mere, Sweet Reads & Treats

“Second chance romance is my absolute catnip and Never Look Back is a beautiful, angsty, and gritty addition to that trope.”

– Nose Stuck in a Book Blog

 

 

Synopsis

From NYT and USA Today bestselling author A.L. Jackson comes an enemies-to-lovers, close-proximity, second-chance romance…

Logan Lawson won me in a bet.

The second I saw him sitting at the illegal card table, I knew I was in trouble.

Years ago, he sealed my fate and condemned me to a life I didn’t want to lead.

Yet he’s filled with untamed fury and thirsting for vengeance against the husband I hate.

 

Aster Costa is everything I never should have wanted.

The second she showed with her pompous, prick of a husband, I should have gotten up and walked.

But there’s no looking away from the woman who wrecked me.

Worse, I can’t stop myself from plotting to get her back.

I want nothing more than to be free of my husband.

I’m afraid Logan Lawson is the only one who can make that happen.

He might hate me for our past, but now it’s me on my knees begging for help.

 

Finding each other in the middle of it wasn’t supposed to be part of the bargain.

But once Logan touches me, I’m gone.

A torch is rekindled. A fire is lit.

 

Aster Costa has always been mine.

And this time, no matter the cost, I won’t give her back…

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Never Look Back is the third book in the Redemption Hills series by the ever-talented, A.L. Jackson. You can read each book as standalone but I HIGHLY recommend them all because they all have a unique storyline and these brothers are fire. Protective, sweet with the perfect amount of alpha, and hot AF and the ones they fall for bring them to their knees. 
Seven years. Seven years of hate. Seven years of pain. Seven years of being locked in chains. Seven years ago their lives changed and now they were in the same room again. Logan knew he should have just walked away but he was going to get back what was stolen from him. Her. If the only way was to win her, so be it. He normally wouldn’t wager for a woman but she wasn’t just any woman. She was the woman who ruined him. She was the woman who he could never forget. She was now a woman he didn’t know what to do with…
Aster loved him. He was her everything. Now she wanted to run. She had to be smart though. He wanted to set her free seven years ago, maybe just maybe he could help set her free now even if she had to beg. Their past is complicated, beautiful, and forbidden. It seems their present is the same in a different kind of way except now hate was thrown in. Can she show him that she can be trusted? 
I can’t get too much into the storyline but I can say… OMFG! This man. Swoon. I have been falling for Logan throughout the series and now I have completely fallen for the man. And Aster, she is a badass and knows exactly what she wants. Together, they are fire! Their connection is beautifully poetic. It was awesome catching up with the family! I can’t wait for the next book, I was hoping Tessa was going to get her own story, she deserves it. 
P.S. Make sure you get the bonus story! 
Quotes: 
“You’d do well not to underestimate me, Aster Rose.”
The first time I’d seen her, I’d known I’d never set my eyes on anything more beautiful. The girl was better than any flower or rainbow or piece of priceless art hanging in a museum. Aster Rose was my poetry.
“Well, I’m not sure what I’m doing tonight, but I’ll definitely try to make it.” 
“Try harder,” Juni said, propping her hands on her hips. 
Eden shook her head. “This one is testing out how far she can get away with the sass.”
