Review & Excerpt Tour – Sweet Life, Nina Lane

December 14, 2017 By

 

 

 

 


He knows if she’s been bad or good.

Amidst the sugarplums and mistletoe, fashion stylist Julia Bennett is every inch a scrooge. Known for her ice-queen ways, she’s having a meltdown over a botched business deal and an upcoming milestone birthday. Add the pressure of forced holiday cheer, and she’s ready to dive into the spiked eggnog and not come out until summer.

Warren Stone, president and owner of the Sugar Rush Candy Company, is determined to make Julia slow down and enjoy the holidays. As her friend and confidante for thirteen years, he knows her better than anyone. But when decking the halls leads them to an explosive, sexy night, everything suddenly changes.

 

And when Warren decides Julia is all he wants for Christmas, will she risk their longtime friendship for the gift of love?

“Now step into my office.”

Julia blinked at his hard tone, her gaze shifting to his closed office door. “I beg your pardon?”

Warren opened the door. “In. Now.”

Her features tightened with resistance just as the elevator doors opened and several employees emerged, their voices rising in chatter. Julia crossed the hallway in front of them, her shoulders rigid. He caught a whiff of Chanel No. 5 as she passed him.

He entered the office behind her and closed the door, flicking the lock shut.

“You are not to take out personal crap on my employees,” he said. “That’s not how I run this company.”

Julia’s lips compressed. “Odd that you’ve never before questioned my treatment of your employees. And it wasn’t personal. She needed to know she’d screwed up.”

“Announcing the holiday party early is not screwing up,” Warren replied evenly. “You’re pissed off because you’ve had a shitty week, you have too much on your plate, an old bucket list has thrown you off your game, and you don’t know what to do with the fact that we fucked the other night.”

Two spots of color appeared on her cheeks. “I seem to recall that what I did with that fact was tell you it wasn’t going to happen again. After which you informed me in excellent caveman style that I was wrong. You seem to forget I’m never wrong.”

About this, you are.

He bit back the words. He hadn’t become the president of Sugar Rush by throwing his weight around. He knew how to bide his time, work his way into getting what he wanted. And damned if he didn’t want her more with every passing second.

“Well?” Julia put her hands on her hips and glared at him. “Are we done here?”

Under her make-up, purplish smudges shadowed her eyes. Brackets of tension lined her mouth. His jaw tightened.

“You had a migraine yesterday,” he said.

“What the fuck do you care?” Julia snapped.

Warren’s hands flexed. He was used to her quick-fire cursing, all the more effective when delivered by a woman who looked like royalty, but he didn’t like being the recipient of her wrath.

“I’m putting Mia Donovan in charge of the Sugar Rush holiday party,” he said.

“You’re firing me?” Julia stared at him, her eyes widening. “Are you serious?”

“Yes.” He steeled himself against her shock and the knowledge that he was hurting her. “You’ve planned it for the past ten years, and it’s time to hand it over to someone else.”

“You don’t get to decide that.”

“Yes, I do. Sugar Rush is my company. This is also the event where I’ll be announcing my retirement. You’re not going to plan it.”

“Because I have too much on my plate?” Julia stopped in front of the windows, her arms crossed and her fiery gaze fixed on him. “Thanks for your concern, Daddy, but I assure you I can handle everything I take on.”

“That’s why you’re such a success. It’s also why your headaches are getting worse.”

“You are not my fucking doctor.”

“Stop swearing.”

She barked out a laugh. “You need to rethink this retirement thing, Warren. It’s making you soft.”

Given the state of his dick, he was anything but soft.

“If you won’t delegate your projects, I will,” he said.

“Because you can’t stop being the boss, even if you think otherwise.” Julia paced angrily to the desk, her eyes flaring with blue ice. “Why are you retiring, Warren? Everyone knows you’re the power behind the throne, much as you’ve let the boys take all the glory. Three months—hell, one month from now when you have nothing to do and no one to order around, you’re going to wonder why you made such a bad decision.”

Warren’s jaw clenched. He was sick of getting pushback from all sides. “I’ve been in business my entire life. I know what I’m doing.”

“So do I, dammit,” Julia retorted. “I don’t need you looking out for me.”

“I will always look out for you.”

She came to a halt, her whole body stilling. By contrast, Warren’s heartbeat kicked up, sudden heat flooding his veins. Their gazes met across the room, a crackling electric current firing through the air.

Julia took a breath, her breasts heaving beneath her jacket.

“Goddamn you, Warren Stone,” she whispered.

“I told you to stop swearing.” He advanced, his own breath increasing, his hands fisting and unfisting at his sides.

Rebellion tightened her features. “And if I don’t?”

“You sure you want to find out?”

He closed the distance between them, his lust flaring like a match to dry leaves.

What the fuck was going on with them?

The question flared like a comet through his mind and died just as fast—because he didn’t care about the answer. His mind was consumed with the thought of tasting her red lips again, sweet like cherries, spicy like peppers. Her mouth could deliver an insult as sharp and searing as a blade, but he knew—had always known, even if he’d smothered the knowledge—that the sounds issuing from Julia Bennett’s mouth could also be smooth, hot murmurs of lust that rushed straight to his blood. Weakening him of all thought, all control, inciting him with the urge to—

He grabbed her shoulders, hauling her soft, slender body against him. He’d always loved the contrast of Julia, the sharp-tongued, acidic queen and the relentlessly devoted aunt. The rigorous boss who shot orders like arrows, and the loyal friend who bought Hailey’s favorite peanut butter, sent care packages to Gavin Knight when he was deployed in Iraq, spent hours on end with Evan at the hospital.

He stared down at her fine features, pale skin, and wide blue eyes that he’d seen almost every day of his life for the past thirteen years—and suddenly now it felt as if he were looking at her for the first time. Had he never noticed that tiny birthmark right beneath her left eye? Or the silver flecks in her irises, like falling snow? Or the perfect curve in her upper lip, tempting him to put his tongue there and—

Oh, he’d noticed all right. He’d just tried to pretend he hadn’t.

“What the hell am I going to do with you, Julia?” he muttered.

“Fire me, apparently.” Her tone was bitter, her eyes blue fire.

Her gaze flickered involuntarily to his mouth, her lips parting. He slipped his hand beneath her chin, lifting her face to his. His heart jackhammered. Her breath brushed against his mouth, the familiar scent of her—Chanel No. 5, lavender soap, pure Julia—suddenly exotic and tantalizing.

“I’m going to let you go,” he said slowly, “and take two steps back. I want you to reach under your skirt and take your underwear off… if you’re wearing any.”

Release Day, Excerpt & 5 Heart Reviews – Miss Mechanic, Emma Hart

December 12, 2017 By

 

 

Two mechanics. One rivalry.

She’ll prove she’s as good as she says she is.

He’ll prove her place isn’t under the hood.

It’s over it.

 

“Don’t let the bastards get you down.”

For twenty-six years, I lived by my daddy’s motto. Which is why “Mechanic Wanted” is all it takes for me to apply for the job at the garage we once owned.

And I meet the biggest bastard of them all.

Dexter Ryne. Hotter than Hell in July and a firm believer that my place is on reception, taking phone calls and looking pretty. Not getting dirty under the hood of a car.

Determined to prove each other wrong, we make a deal.

I have three weeks to prove my worth as a mechanic. If I don’t, I’m on telephone duty.

If I do, he’ll accept defeat and make my job permanent.

Now, all I have to do is fight my attraction to the cocky little… beep.

Problem is, an engine isn’t the only thing he knows how to make purr…

Kara's Review

Miss Mechanic is Emma Hart’s new standalone romantic comedy and I loved every word! Emma just keeps perfecting her skills in writing hilarious, sexy characters who we love and hate. Well, mostly love. Jamie applies for a job as a mechanic at the shop she grew up in. It isn’t her families anymore, but she loves it and what she does for a living. The  new owner, Dexter is a total ass! He doesn’t think a woman can be as good at fixing cars as a man, but he agrees to let Jamie try. Dexter just pushed his way to the front of the line with Jack, Drake and West. Hot damn! I don’t know what it is about his sexy, mouthy ass but I love him. From the moment he met Jamie he just wants to push her buttons. They bicker and fight, but it’s really all foreplay. The best kind of hilarious foreplay! They need to work together and they both need to be right. Who’s going to win in the end? Will they be able to keep their hands off each other? I loved this story! Oh my God. I was dying laughing and Dex is everything. Every. Thing. He’s jerky on the outside, but oh so smooshy on the inside. He uses his mouth to sling insults and then to give out compliments. Jamie is a sexy, talented sassy mouth. Together they are fire and ice and after a while just sparks and fire! I loved every word.

 

“Have you ever kissed yourself, darlin’? It’s a risk I’m willing to take.”

 

“Lobsters don’t even mate for life. They’re dirty little cheaters. Like Ross, since they weren’t on a break.”

 

“Actually, yes, I do. In about ten minutes, I’ll be putty in your hands, so I’m all about telling you what to do while I still have my wits about me.

“That’s the hottest thing you’ve ever said to me.”

“Shut up and finish taking off your clothes.”

 

Sandra's Review

Miss Mechanic is a standalone comedy romance by the ever-talented Emma Hart. I have read her sexy as sin books and her hilarious as fuck books and have loved every word. Her female characters are strong, intelligent, and beautiful. I loved Miss Fix It, having the female in a role (builder) that you don’t see many woman in was badass. Now, it’s time to for a mechanic to show how she can do anything a man can do…and do it better.
Jamie needed a job. Dex needed a mechanic. She grew up in the shop. His Grandfather was the new owner and Dex was in charge. He didn’t want a woman in the back under a hood. He wanted one in the front answering the phones. He has seen a few woman mechanics but they didn’t look like the woman who just came in looking like she going out on the town. There was no way she had the skills she so arrogantly insisted she had. But, if she wanted to prove him wrong, then she would have to work for it.
Three weeks. Jamie had three weeks to prove that this arrogant asshole was wrong. That she not only belonged under a hood but that she would kick his ass every which way to Sunday. She wasn’t going to break. Especially for this asshole. Even if he was hot as fuck and made her want to throw him on top of a hood of a car. He drove her crazy. One minute she wanted to junk punch him and the next she wanted to kiss him. Fuck him. She had a job to do and nothing was getting in her way even her libido. But if she could have both? She hated him for what he said but his other sides are different. Men.
Dex hated her. Hated the way she wore her jean shorts. Hated the way she sassed him. Hated the way she kicked his ass on a daily basis with her words. Hated that his sister and niece thought she had his number. Hated it and damn if he wanted to kiss her for it.
Dex and Jamie’s relationship is maddening, hilarious, and sexy. Omg! These two. They can go all day. Fighting was their foreplay and it was dangerous and so damn hot. You are going to love these three weeks with these two! I know I did.
Overall…it’s another kickass comedy by Emma Hart. It’s no hearts and flowers romance. It’s a taco and sarcasm filled romance. Sometimes I just need exactly that. A good laugh. Fun atmosphere. Strong characters. Inappropriate elders. And smartass kids. This was that book.
Quotes:
“I like her.”
“Of course you do,” I replied.
“She doesn’t take any of your banana-split.”
“My eyes are up here, Romeo.”
“I know, but your legs are down here, darlin’.”
“You’re always on my nerves, Dex. You’re practically a medical condition at this point.”

 

 

 

“Can I help you?” I asked.
He blinked and met my eyes.
“What the hell are you doing over there?” I pushed to stand up straight.
“Right now?” He capped his water bottle. “Well, honestly… I’m just thinking you’d look better over the hood of that car than under it.”
I unhooked the hood and slammed it down, spinning on the balls of my feet.
Our eyes met properly. I didn’t like what I saw in his—desire, attraction, need. Which was obviously why a shiver ran down my spine.
I cocked a hip, putting my hand on it. “The only time you will ever get me over a hood of a car is if a wiper blade needs changing. So, unless you’re a wiper blade…”
Dex pulled his phone from his pocket and started tapping the screen.
I blinked. “What are you doing?”
He peered up at me through his unfairly thick eyelashes. “Seeing if I can get a wiper blade costume for Halloween.”
“I don’t even know how to respond to that.”
“You can buy wiper blade glasses.”
“What?”
He raised his eyebrows. “And a lady here on eBay will hand-make any costume. There’s my Halloween sorted.”
I stared at him. “You’re not getting me over anything, Dex. Definitely not a car hood. No matter what you think.”
He clutched his chest dramatically. “You wound me.”
“Unfortunately not fatally,” I muttered.
“You also underestimate me.”
“There’s a lot of that going around in this garage.” I put the bottle of coolant away.
“Touché.”
“Thank you.”
“Can I ask you something?”
I sighed and turned to face him again. “What?”
Earnestly, he asked, “Can you stop wearing those tiny shorts? Or yoga pants that make me want to touch your ass every five minutes?”
I looked down at the ripped shorts of my dungarees. “Can you keep your thoughts to yourself? Control yourself, maybe? Not look at me and see someone worth screwing?”

Review Tour – Torrid Little Affair, Kendall Ryan

December 12, 2017 By

 

 

 

 

TLA AmazonThe best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

AMAZON | iBOOKS | B&N | KOBO

Kara's Review

Torrid Little Affair is the third book in the Forbidden Desires series. I’m a huge fan of Kendall Ryan. I always know she’s going to bring all the feels with her books. I’ve been a fan of Coopers since the beginning of the series and I was even rooting for him at one point! Cooper has a broken heart. He lost his love to his brother and he’s been away licking his wounds. It’s time to come home and get back to reality. When he meets his new assistant he’s immediately taken with her. She’s sexy with her rounded curves and her pretty face. He can tell she’s haunted by something from her past but he still wants her. He proposes a no strings attached sexual relationship separate from work. Corinne doesn’t have time for relationships but she misses being with a man. When Cooper offers her exactly what she needs she fights it, but after one taste she’s all in. It’s complicated, it’s sexy, it’s fun and it’s going to end badly. Will Corinne give up her past to have her future? Can Cooper break down her walls and get to her heart? I loved this story. It’s sexy, funny and full of heart. I can’t wait for Quinn’s story!

 

“Where’s the fun if there’s no slap and tickle?” Mauve demanded.

 

“I can see how timid you are, little dove. Just promise me you’ll think it through.”

 

Sandra's Review

Torrid Little Affair is the third book in the Forbidden Desires series. It can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the first two books to get the full effect. I loved Cooper in the first two books so I was looking forward to his story. I just knew it was going to be hot, fun, and romantic and I was so right.
Cooper has been nursing a broken heart over the last six months but it was now time to go home. To Boston. To Forbidden Desires. To his brothers’ side. He wasn’t sure if he was ready but then he sees her. His new assistant. A sexy, curvy woman who
had something hiding behind her eyes. Desire, innocence, fear, and more. He found the perfect woman to get him over his heartbreak and he would also help her with what she needs. To feel desired, safe but without commitment.
Corinne’s life is too complicated for dating. So, Cooper’s offer to a no-strings attached, orgasm filled relationship is so very tempting. She knows it not a good idea with him being her boss but after their first kiss, she can’t say no. It was too good. Too sinfully sweet and sexy all at the same time. She needed this. Needed to put herself out there even if it could not go past sex and a few nights out on the town.
Cooper and Corinne’s relationship is sexy but frustrating. To both of them. They have their wants and needs. Cooper is patient but he knows she is hiding something. Something is keeping her back. It’s keeping her walls up while he wants to break them down. Can they get on the same page?
Awe…Cooper. I just love him. The closet romantic. And Corinne, she is a saint. I just love them together. Watching them grow was wonderful and beautiful.
Overall…I thought it was a perfect story for Cooper. He hasn’t had it easy and he deserved to be loved. I am excited about Quinn’s story!!
Quotes:
“I can see how timid you are, little dove. Just promise me you’ll think it through.”
“It’s a shame to be blessed with an ass like that and not let me see you work it.”
“Show me how to make you lose your mind, Cooper,” she whispered, her voice low and sultry.

Review & Excerpt Tour – No Reservations, Kristen Proby

December 6, 2017 By

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby, comes a sexy, new contemporary romance novella in her Fusion Series, NO RESERVATIONS, brought to you by 1001 Dark Nights! Grab your copy of this amazing novella today!

 

 

About NO RESERVATIONS:

New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby takes us back to her highly acclaimed Fusion series.

Chase MacKenzie is not the man for Maura Jenkins. A self-proclaimed life-long bachelor, and unapologetic about his distaste for monogamy, a woman would have to be a masochist to want to fall into Chase’s bed.

And Maura is no masochist.

Chase has one strict rule: no strings attached. Which is fine with Maura because she doesn’t even really like Chase. He’s arrogant, cocky, and let’s not forget bossy. But when he aims that crooked grin at her, she goes weak in the knees. Not that she has any intentions of falling for his charms.

Definitely not.

Well, maybe just once…

Sandra's Review

No Reservations is a novella in the amazing Fusion series. I will never get enough of Kristen’s books. I would probably read the phone book if she wrote it. Ok, back to this story. It can be read as standalone but if you have had the pleasure of reading the series then you might remember Chase, Mac’s brother and business partner from Blush for Me. This is his story and it’s sinfully sexy.
 
Chase and Maura have a few things in common. They love a good wine, great sex, and no strings. Chase is a bit of a player. Maura enjoys sex. She has needs but doesn’t just sleep with just anyone. She knows Chase would be up there in her best sex of her life list but she doesn’t want to just be a notch on his bedpost. She also doesn’t want to marry the guy so it’s confusing. That is why she has said no to him more than once about going out of a date. She had the “stay away from Chase” locked down until one night when she lets her guard and her panties down.
 
They agree it will never happen again. It was just a one-time thing. They bicker too much for this to go any further. It would never work. It wouldn’t work. It never works past the sex phase when it comes to men for Maura. They want too much. But what if he is different? What if he doesn’t just want a notch on his bedpost. What if he really cares about her outside of the bedroom. Will these two get on the same page and actually talk about what they want or don’t want out of life?
 
I love a good novella. This was a great addition to the series. Short, sexy, funny, and sweet all wrapped up in a small package. I hope to see them again.
 
Quotes:
 
“I mean, he’s not likely to seduce me into mind blowing sex in his office, right?”
He smirks and shakes his head. “Sure, if that helps you sleep at night.”
 
“I like your sassy mouth,” he says, his voice low. “And I like to shut it up as well.”
“I feel like I should be offended by that, but I’m not.”
 
“Come over to my place, sugar. I have donuts.”
I grin and nod, even though he can’t see me. “This is why we’re friends.”

 

 

 

Excerpt:

Once we’ve caught our breath, he pushes up on his arms, taking his weight off of me, and smiles down at me.

“Well, that was fun.”

“Definitely fun,” I reply with a nod, then wiggle out from under him and flip on the lamp next to the bed. I blink rapidly in the light and glance at him. He’s watching me, still kneeling in the middle of the bed, breathing hard. “I’m not staying.”

“I figured,” he says and rolls off the bed, pads into the bathroom, flushes the toilet, and returns to find me pulling on my clothes. “You don’t have to leave right now.”

Oh yes. I do.

“I should,” I reply, doing my best to seem very nonchalant. “I have plans in the morning.”

He nods. “I’ll take you home then.”

“Great plan, since I don’t have a car and it’s practically the middle of the night.”

“Or midnight.” He smirks and pulls on a pair of jeans. He doesn’t button them, or add a shirt, and instead stands there with his arms folded over his chest, watching me tug the skirt down my legs.

I can’t find my panties, and I refuse to ask for them, so I’ll just consider them a loss.

Five minutes later, we’re back in his sexy car and headed toward my condo.

“This won’t happen again,” I inform him, breaking the silence.

“No, ma’am.”

“We irritate the sh*t out of each other.”

He sighs deeply and mutters “that’s the truth” under his breath.

“So even if the chemistry is there, we won’t do this again.”

“Good plan.”

I nod and hold my pinky out to him. “Pinky swear.”

“I’m not a twelve-year-old girl.”

“No, you’re not,” I agree with a laugh. “But now I feel silly, so just do it.”

He links his pinky with mine and then pulls my hand to his mouth, kissing my knuckles.

“This is how the f*cking gets started.”

“No, sweetheart, the f*cking got started months ago.”

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby, comes a sexy, new contemporary romance novella in her Fusion Series, NO RESERVATIONS, brought to you by 1001 Dark Nights! Grab your copy of this amazing novella today!

 

 

About NO RESERVATIONS:

New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby takes us back to her highly acclaimed Fusion series.

Chase MacKenzie is not the man for Maura Jenkins. A self-proclaimed life-long bachelor, and unapologetic about his distaste for monogamy, a woman would have to be a masochist to want to fall into Chase’s bed.

And Maura is no masochist.

Chase has one strict rule: no strings attached. Which is fine with Maura because she doesn’t even really like Chase. He’s arrogant, cocky, and let’s not forget bossy. But when he aims that crooked grin at her, she goes weak in the knees. Not that she has any intentions of falling for his charms.

Definitely not.

Well, maybe just once…

Sandra's Review

No Reservations is a novella in the amazing Fusion series. I will never get enough of Kristen’s books. I would probably read the phone book if she wrote it. Ok, back to this story. It can be read as standalone but if you have had the pleasure of reading the series then you might remember Chase, Mac’s brother and business partner from Blush for Me. This is his story and it’s sinfully sexy.
Chase and Maura have a few things in common. They love a good wine, great sex, and no strings. Chase is a bit of a player. Maura enjoys sex. She has needs but doesn’t just sleep with just anyone. She knows Chase would be up there in her best sex of her life list but she doesn’t want to just be a notch on his bedpost. She also doesn’t want to marry the guy so it’s confusing. That is why she has said no to him more than once about going out of a date. She had the “stay away from Chase” locked down until one night when she lets her guard and her panties down.
They agree it will never happen again. It was just a one-time thing. They bicker too much for this to go any further. It would never work. It wouldn’t work. It never works past the sex phase when it comes to men for Maura. They want too much. But what if he is different? What if he doesn’t just want a notch on his bedpost. What if he really cares about her outside of the bedroom. Will these two get on the same page and actually talk about what they want or don’t want out of life?
I love a good novella. This was a great addition to the series. Short, sexy, funny, and sweet all wrapped up in a small package. I hope to see them again.
Quotes:
“I mean, he’s not likely to seduce me into mind blowing sex in his office, right?”
He smirks and shakes his head. “Sure, if that helps you sleep at night.”
“I like your sassy mouth,” he says, his voice low. “And I like to shut it up as well.”
“I feel like I should be offended by that, but I’m not.”
“Come over to my place, sugar. I have donuts.”
I grin and nod, even though he can’t see me. “This is why we’re friends.”

 

 

 

Excerpt:

“I don’t love blind dates,” I remind my friend Kat for the fourth time since she picked me up at my place twenty minutes ago. “You really didn’t have to set me up with anyone.”

“I think you’ll like him,” she says with a shrug.

“Why are we meeting them there?”

“Because Mac just finished up with work, and having him come home to get me and then go back downtown seemed unproductive.”

I nod and take a deep breath. It’s not that men as a species make me nervous. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever met a man that gave me butterflies, which I guess is a sad commentary on the state of my love life.

“You do like men, don’t you?” she asks with a raised brow and glances over at me. Kat is one of the most colorful women I know. She has deep red hair, a full sleeve of beautiful tattoos, and the outfits she wears should land her on the cover of a pin-up girl calendar. She’s super pretty.

“Yes,” I reply with a laugh. “I’m into men.”

“Perfect.” Kat smiles and pulls into a parking space at a trendy sushi restaurant near the waterfront. “And there’s no pressure. If you don’t like him, no harm done.”

“True.” I nod and exit the car, meeting her on the sidewalk. “If nothing else, I get to spend some fun time out with you and Mac.”

“Atta girl,” she says with a wink and opens the door for me, following me into the restaurant. I immediately see Kat’s husband, Mac, sitting at a table in the back of the restaurant. His friend’s back is to me, but it looks familiar.

When Mac stands with a smile to kiss his wife like he hasn’t seen her in a month, his companion stands and turns around with a smile, and all I can think is, f*ck.

Cover Reveal & Excerpt – My Kinda Mess, Lacey Black

December 5, 2017 By

 

Today we have the gorgeous cover reveal for My Kinda Mess by Lacey Black! Make sure you preorder your copy today!!
Title: My Kinda Mess
Series: Summer Sisters book 4
Author: Lacey Black
Release Date: January 16, 2018
 
 
About My Kinda Mess:

All her life, Lexi Summer has dreamed of one thing: to become a mother. As the youngest of six, she’s accustomed to the chaos and camaraderie that comes with a big family, which is why she has been anxious to get a jump on this next phase in her life. She thought she had it all: the perfect house, husband, and future. Until one secret rips it all apart.Nothing in Linkin Stone’s life has been easy. Raised by a single mom, working two jobs, and helping with his much younger twin brothers which keep him on his toes, and working two jobs. He busts his butt to right the wrong of someone from his past and keep the ones he loves safe. He doesn’t need anyone or anything. But that all changes the moment he meets his sexy, feisty neighbor, Lexi.

When fates collide, two people on separate paths suddenly find themselves traveling the same road. Could an easy friendship turn into something more? Or in the end, will their decision kinda create one big mess?

*Though part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone. It is intended for those 18 and over due to graphic language, descriptive sex, and the world’s most inappropriate grandparents.

 

 
Exclusive Excerpt:

When the door is closed, I turn my attention back to her. “So, that was the husband, huh?”

“Ex.”

Stepping forward, I invade her personal space. Her eyes are alive with fire, but not in the way they were moment ago with the douche. No, her eyes dance with a heady mixture of excitement and lust as she glares back at me. “Watching you tear him apart and eat him alive was so fucking hot,” I confess, touching the side of her cheek with the side of my finger.

Her gasp echoes in the hall, invading my soul and filling my mind with dirty images. Ones of her and me, naked, and making little noises just like that. “I hear cold showers work wonders to help cool you down,” she suggests with a smirk.

“Are you joining me in said shower?”

“Not in this lifetime, bucko.”

“Shame. I’m sure you’d really know how to turn up the heat in the shower, firecracker.” Again, I touch her face. I can’t seem to stop touching her. She should probably run in the other direction, fast. Hell, I should run the other way as quickly as possible. The last thing I need is a woman clouding up my brain, distracting my focus from helping my mom.

But I’m just a man.

A man with urges and needs, and those are directed at this little spitfire of a woman who makes me want to turn all caveman on her and throw her over my shoulder. I bet I could extract another of those sexy little gasps if I were to swat her ass.

Plus, throw in the fact that she’s technically married. That point alone is enough to make me want to look away. But I can’t. I’m drawn to her, like a moth to a flame. This desire I felt, even after only a brief meeting several weeks ago, clearly isn’t going away anytime soon. Not when she stands there with fire dancing in her eyes and a sadistically little smile on her lips. Oh, this woman is trouble, and I’m going to get burned.

“Well, whether that’s true or not, I guess you’ll never know,” she quips, my brain picturing exactly what she’s look like naked in the shower. Of course, having my eyes glued to her ass when she turns to walk away helps those images. A lot.

“Maybe,” I reply with a smile.

“No maybe,” she fires back, turning her attention back to me. Or at least I think she turns it back to me. I can’t tell. My eyes are still focused on the same spot her ass was just occupying. When I glance up at her eyes, I swear I’m scolded from the heat.

“Stop looking at my ass,” she chastises.

“It’s a nice ass,” I defend, refusing to look away from those hypnotizing green orbs.

“You’re impossible.”

“You like me.”

“No, no, I don’t. You’re…annoying and impossible and just like rattling my chain.”

Stepping closer yet until I can smell the scent of her lotion and see her throat bob as she swallows hard (a result of my nearness), I say, “You. Like. Me. You just don’t know what to do about it.”

Rolling her eyes, she fires back, “Don’t be so sure of yourself. You’re not that likeable.”

Lexi reaches back and finishes unlocking the door. Before she steps inside, she pauses, making my heart skip a beat and my boner stand up and say hello. “Thank you for helping me get rid of him,” she says softly, without turning and looking my way.

“Anytime he gives you trouble, come get me.”

Before she can slip inside and disappear on me, I reach forward and touch her arms. My gut tightens as my fingers dance along smooth, soft skin. I’ve never had a reaction like this to a woman. Never. So why her? Why this little hellion in heels? She’s already given me sleepless nights and wet dreams and I don’t even know her. I should stay as far away from her as possible, but if I know one thing about myself, it’s that I love a challenge.

And Lexi Summer is that challenge.

About UNDONE (Unknown Trilogy #3):

Amber Tate never dreamed their heart-wrenching escape from the enemy’s attack would lead them to the most beautiful place she’s ever seen. Like everywhere else in the world, Elmendorf military base in Alaska has been taken over, but it’s time to take it back—all of it—one base, one city at a time. After losing so much, Amber clings to the one precious person she has left, and vows to sacrifice everything to help save the Earth.

EXCERPT:

Did he ever think of our night together in the tent?

I did.

Without a doubt, I’d been tipsy, but I remembered everything. For so many years there was tension between us. It started as annoyance, my best friend’s older brother who always acted like a douche. Then, after he joined the Army and came back to visit, it was like he’d matured just enough to lose that obnoxious edge and I realized for the first time how sexy he was. I wanted him. Back then, pursuing guys had been my vice, but I knew Amber might be weirded out by it.

When I thought back to that night at the nature reserve…it was really our last night of true freedom and happiness. It’s strange to think we were happy, especially since our parents had been taken prisoners at that point, and we’d watched his grandfather be killed, but we still had hope. We thought we’d get our parents back. We didn’t have any idea just how horrible things were. Or that aliens were real.

I rubbed the prickly hairs on my arms down and took another bite. I didn’t want to think about that night in the tent. The sound of Tater’s laughter. His wide smile. The way the neck of my loose shirt had slid down while I was arranging my sleeping bag and laughing drunkenly. His warm mouth as he kissed me on my exposed shoulder…when I turned to him, Tater had never looked more serious. It had been a look of question, like, “Is this all right?” And I’d responded by sliding my hand behind his neck and pulling him down on top of me.

Now he never smiled or laughed.

“How are things in the fields?” I asked him.

Tater gave a single shrug, not looking up or saying a word.

“If you’re wondering,” Linette said with spite, “Things are amazing with the livestock. I can fill a bucket with milk in record time, and helped a mama swine birth seven piglets yesterday. I’m a regular fucking Farmer Jane.”

Before I could respond, Tater whispered, “I need you to get us a radio.”

Our end of the table went silent and still. I glanced at the guards, who were surveying the room with bland expressions, then I forced another bite into my mouth. When I looked up again, Linette had that crazed look in her eyes, staring straight ahead. Her strategizing look.

“Are there cameras in the room where you teach?” she asked.

“I don’t know,” I whispered.

“How can you not know?” she asked, annoyed. “Look today.”

“Okay, but there’s no way I can take anything. I’m never alone.”

“The guards cannot be staring at you the entire time.” Linette nodded to the bag at my side. “Slip it in there.”

“Remy,” Tater said to his bowl. “If you can get your hands on anything electronic, we can try to use it at night to send or receive signals, and you can return it in the morning.”

My stomach was roiling at the idea. There’s a reason I didn’t join the military. Stealth and danger were not my things. But I was the only one with access to the palace.

“I’ll look,” I promised.

“Have you been alone with him yet?” Linette asked.

My innards seized at this, churning my breakfast. I felt both of their eyes on me as I stared at the pasty contents in my bowl and minutely shook my head.

“Make it happen,” she demanded.

From the corner of my eye it looked like Tater was holding his spoon so hard he might bend it in his fist. I reached out with my leg as far as I could under the table until my foot touched his. The contact, even through our shoes, sent blood whooshing to every nerve in my body. I watched as his hand relaxed on the spoon, and he pressed his foot to mine. Our eyes never met.

We were quiet as we finished.

“Did Remy tell you her fantastically stupid idea to try and teach the girls in our room after hours?”

Tater’s eyes flew up to me, scorching me, and I looked at the guard again. When I found one of them staring straight at me, my demeanor changed to demure and I gave the guard a soft smile before looking back down. From the corner of my eye I saw Tater’s hands clench into fists again, and he brought them under the table to his lap.

“Rem…” Tater’s voice was filled with warning.

“It’s fine,” I whispered, grabbing my tray and standing. “Don’t worry.”

I wished Linette hadn’t told him that. As if he didn’t have enough crap on his mind. I sent her a glare, which she returned, and I caught one last look of Tater’s stiff form, hands in his lap, knee bouncing and jaw locked. I wished so badly I could hug him and try to calm him. But all I could do was walk away.

 

 

 

 

And Don’t Miss the First Two Novels in the Unknown Trilogy!

 

About UNKNOWN (Unknown Trilogy #1):

Amber Tate believes the worst thing she’ll suffer in life is dealing with the unrequited love she feels for her brother’s best friend, Rylen Fite. She also believes war is something unfortunate that happens places far, far away from her rural Nevada town. She’s wrong on both counts.

When an unknown organization meticulously bombs major cities in the United States and across the globe, a trickle-down effect spreads to remaining towns at an alarming speed—everything from food and water sources to technology and communications are compromised. Without leadership, the nation is split between paralysis and panic, but Amber isn’t one to hide or watch helplessly. She’s determined to put her nursing skills to use, despite the danger, even if it means working alongside the man she can never have.

In this first installment of NY Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins’s debut New Adult series, a frighteningly realistic apocalyptic America is brought to life, entwined with searing romantic tension that will leave you eager for more.

About UNREST (Unknown Trilogy #2):

Being on the run in the desert means food and sanctuary are hard to come by, but Amber Tate and her crew are not about to give up. Not after having so many of the things they love brutally ripped from them by an unknown enemy who sent their world into the apocalypse.

Survival takes precedence, but once safe shelter is found, their guards fall and the emotions they’ve been holding in are finally released. Anger, insecurities…lust. In their tight quarters, Amber, Rylen, Tater, and Remy can’t escape it. The past must be faced, and passions run even stronger in the darkest of times.

In the midst of unrest, their worlds are rocked again when they discover the truth about the war that’s ruined their lives. They thought finding out the enemy’s identity would give them the edge; instead it’s revealed terrifying dangers they never thought possible.

About DIRTY FILTHY FIX:

Kara's Review

Dirty Filthy Fix is a crossover novella between the Fixed series and the Dirty series. Can you say ‘Hell Yes!” I loved every minute. Every dirty, filthy word. The writing is fantastic and Trish and Nate are fabulous. Patricia is Hudson’s secretary and we already know and love her. Nathan is business partners with Donovan (swoon). A chance meeting full of kink and sexiness leaves Trish wanting more, but that’s just not who she is. She doesn’t do relationships. Hell, she doesn’t ever take home men from the club. When Nate sees her again he knows he can’t let her go again. But he has to tread carefully, she’s a flight risk. Can he show her with his body that he’s worth the risk? Will Trish see that it’s ok to trust a man and hope for more? I loved everything about this story except that it’s too short! I want more Nate and Trish! Nate just knows Trish. He knows what she needs before she knows and he knows how to get it for her. I want Nate to fix things for me!

 

Like all the other men in the room, he tasted like money and secrets. Like power and sex. But he tasted like something new too.

 

“I miss you.”

“I’ll fix this.”

 

 

Excerpt :

I swallowed and peeked behind me at the door to Hudson’s office. It was still shut, thank goodness, but I had to be sure. Then I looked back into Nathan Sinclair’s mischievous green eyes.

“I keep my business life and my private life very separate, Mr. Sinclair. I hope you understand that.” I had to bargain with him somehow. It was evident he had the advantage, but I had to try and regain control. In the last ten years, I’d only slept with a handful of people from the Open Door, and all before I’d made my list of rules. After that, I’d made sure that the only men I’d slept with were people I knew through friends, or work, or people completely disassociated with the club. “But I could make an exception if I had to,” I said aloud.

“If you’re suggesting we barter,” Mr. Sinclair said, leaning forward, his elbows on his muscular thighs, “I think I could agree to something.”

“I’m off at five. I could meet in the bathroom, or there’s a hotel just down the street…”

Mr. Sinclair shook his head. “I’m not asking for anything that complicated. I’m not in the habit of forcing women into seduction.”

Huh. That was disappointing for some reason. “Then what did you have in mind?”

Under his beard, the short, boxed style that George Clooney made sexy, I caught the hint of a smirk.“I’ll take your panties.”

“My panties?”

His nod was short and subtle. “You are wearing some, aren’t you?”

“Yes, I’m wearing panties.” I scowled. What did he take me for?

Though, the idea of not wearing panties and sitting so close to him was doing weird things to my insides. Yummy weird things.

I leaned toward him and lowered my voice. “If I give them to you, you won’t tell a soul that I work here and go to those parties? You’ll never mention it again?”

“Cross my heart.” He had a dimple when he smiled. His eyes sparkled, and those tiny wrinkles at the corners made him dignified at the same time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

About Laurelin Paige:

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
