About SWEET MERCY:

One visit to my father in prison—convicted for a murder he didn’t commit—and I’ve attracted the attention of the last man I’d ever want knowing that I exist.

Gabriel Easton.

Son of an infamous crime boss. Pretentious liar. Merciless womanizer. A scoundrel to the core.

Worse, he has figured out how desperate I am to protect my father from brutality behind bars. He has the power to grant that protection and he has offered it … for a price.

Me.

I am to become a prisoner in his playhouse mansion, to live with him until he tires of having me around.

I’ll do anything for my father, including agree to Gabriel’s cruel game. But I won’t comply with his every whim and wish.

Not when he taunts me with that ruthless spark in his cold blue eyes.

Not when he requires that I share his bedroom at night.

Unfortunately for me, I think my loathing for him is what he’s enjoying most.

That’s fine. By the time I’m through with him, he’ll be crying my name.

Mercy.

**Sweet Mercy is the first book in the Dirty Empire series.**

Excerpt

~Gabriel~

I was fully prepared for two things when my eyelids peeled open this morning: one, that I’d be nursing a fucking epic hangover for most of the day after last night’s festivities, and two, that I’d be in an extra-pissy mood by the time I made it up to this shithole.

What I did not expect was to be sitting in Fulcort with a raging hard-on for some chick visiting her old man.

But there you have it.

Fuck.

I’ve been coming here once a month for the last three years to see my father and I have never laid eyes on that woman before. I’d remember. Those sharp cheekbones, that thick jet-black hair. Those fat fucking lips, the kind that were made for wrapping around my cock and sucking slowly. She’s hiding her body in baggy clothes—standard protocol, though she’s taken it to the extreme; she’s one step away from men’s sweatpants—but her arms are toned, her neck is slender and long, her olive skin looks silky soft. I’m a betting man and I’d bet there’s a tight ass and tits that sway when she’s riding hard hiding beneath all that.

I didn’t even notice her at first. I came in, settled into my dad’s usual table in the corner of the room, and started surveying all the degenerates filling the room on this fine Saturday afternoon, killing time until Dad decided to grace me with his presence.

And then I spotted her over there, her pretty brow furrowed in worry as she leaned over the table to get as close to the man as possible without setting off the guards, and I haven’t been able to peel my gaze away since.

It’s been forever and a day since a woman has stirred my blood like this.

What’s even more interesting is that she and the guy she’s visiting—her dad, maybe?—leaned in to share a few whispered words and then those big, brown eyes of hers shifted to the inmates coming in.

To my father.

With wariness, she watched him stroll all the way over, and that’s how, bingo, we’re now eye-fucking each other. At least, that’s what I’m doing.

Until I can get out of here, track her down, and switch to straight-up fucking.

Release Day, 5 Heart Review & Excerpt – Downfall, Jay Crownover

March 27, 2019 By

 

From New York Times bestselling author Jay Crownover comes DOWNFALL, a sexy, standalone contemporary romance! DOWNFALL is now available on all retailers for today only! Grab your copy today before it moves to Amazon KU tomorrow!

 

About DOWNFALL:

Solomon Sanders doesn’t have time to fall in love. Until a stunning, skittish, single mother forces him to pause and recognize just how empty and hollow his busy life has become.

From the start, it’s been ingrained in Solo’s DNA to fight.

Fight for what he believes is right.

Fight for the people he loves.

Fight for the traces of good in a place which tends to be filled with a variety of bad.

Fight for survival, so at some point, his life will quiet down and find a normal pace.

He wasn’t ready for the impact his secretive, shy, obviously out of place new neighbor was going to have on him. And never in a million years was he prepared to fall head over heels for her and her young daughter.

Now, he’s facing the most important, and the hardest fight he’s ever fought… the battle to win Orley’s damaged heart.

Orley Vincent’s heart is full of fear, leaving no space for love. Until a big, brash, brawler of a man forces his way in and makes her realize facing her fears is the only way she can ever be free.

From the start, Orley was groomed to believe she wasn’t good enough.

She wasn’t the perfect daughter. Or student. Or girlfriend.

But, she has always been the best mother she could be to her daughter, Noble.

Keeping Noble safe has always been the one thing she was determined to do, which ironically, is how she ended up on the wrong side of the tracks, living next door to an unlikely hero. Orley’s a woman on the run. She had no idea her frantic sprint was going to land her in the tattooed arms of a man ready to teach her how to fight for herself… and for love.

Kara's Review

[sur=5]

Downfall is Jay Crownover’s newest standalone set in The Point. If you haven’t read that series, you will not be lost, but you should read it because it’s awesome! Jay’s writing is fantastic as always and her characters quickly become friends you can’t help but care about. Solo has lived in The Point his entire life. He works hard, plays harder, takes care of his mom and protects those he cares about. He may work for and be around the dangerous men of The Point, but he’s not bad. He was raised with morals and a heart. His new neighbor is not from around here. She’s innocent and fresh and a young, single mother. She’s running from something but he can’t figure out what. Orley needed to escape her old life and take care of her daughter, Noble. She’s hiding where no one will look for her. But she’s down on her luck and every time she needs help, Solo is there to save her. He’s big, tatted up and quite scary looking, but she’s not afraid of him. She trusts him even though she’s not sure why. He makes her feel safe. Noble is instantly taken with him, I mean, his name is Solo and she’s the biggest Star Wars fan there is even if she’s only three years old! Every time Solo is with her daughter, Orley just melts. This big, strong, scary man is wrapped around Noble’s finger. He’s sweet, gentle and loving. They go from strangers to friends to much more.  Solo is the first man to make her feel safe, loved and protected. Orley showed Solo what he was missing in his life. He needs her more than air now. When her past comes back to get her, will Solo keep his promise? This story was everything! It gave me all the feels: lust, humor, sadness, suspense, love, friendship, loyalty and justice. I loved the slow dance that was Solo and Orley’s relationship. I also loved seeing other residents from The Point and being reminded why I loved them all. Jay once again shows us that just because you live in a bad place and have to do bad things to survive doesn’t make you a bad person.

 

“I’ve never had anyone like you in my life, Solo. You terrify me.”

“That street goes both ways, Orley. I’ve never met anyone like you.”

 

He was tattooed and built in a way that practically meant it was required I ogle him when he was naked. I checked him out thoroughly on behalf of all the women who would kill to be in my shoes.”

 

 

Excerpt:

“What did I tell you about lurking around my place, Skinner? I don’t fucking like it.” The guy’s voice was a low growl. Intimidating without even trying. “I don’t fucking like you.”

Out of habit, I reached back and covered Noble’s ears with my hands. She wasn’t new to foul language, but I didn’t need her repeating this stranger’s garbage words, which she absolutely would at the most inopportune moment.

My eyes widened as he shook the lurker hard enough to snap his head back and forth comically. The smaller man whimpered and clutched at the hands locked on the front of his dirty coat.

“Let me go, Solo. I was just having some fun. She’s a prissy bitch. You’ve seen her walking around here like her shit don’t stink.” The pleading was wasted. The larger man was clearly unmoved.

The new arrival’s massive arms tensed and flexed as he practically threw the other man on the ground. I noticed he was dressed in nothing more than a dark t-shirt even though it was chilly outside. The short sleeves showed off more than his impressive build. In the faded street lights, I could hardly make out the designs that were inked over almost every visible inch of skin. That wasn’t an uncommon look in this neighborhood. Gang tattoos, prison tattoos, and general outsiders who called these streets home tended to rock some serious ink, but this guy’s looked more deliberate and artistic than a simple statement piece.

As soon as my attacker was back on the ground, the bigger guy stepped forward. I reflexively cringed as he lowered his big, booted foot down on the other man’s unprotected private parts. A wail of agony shrieked through the air, and I realized belatedly I should be hauling ass for my apartment, not standing around waiting to see how this brutal display of street justice played out.

I clutched Noble’s hand in mine and briskly jogged the last few yards to my apartment building. I lifted Noble over the sleeping homeless man and hustled up the five flights of stairs to our floor. The elevator had been broken since before we’d moved in, not that I would dare let either of us get trapped in a small place with anyone from this complex.

I was a panting, quaking mess when I finally slammed the door. I dropped to my knees and pulled my daughter into my arms, covering her tear-streaked face in kisses and whispering soothing words over and over again.

There was no way this could be our new normal.

But it was.

Noble deserved so much better than this.

I sighed, pushing her hair off her precious face. “You know what, sweets?” She blinked big, watery blue eyes at me and shook her head. “I think we both need cake.”

She nodded and cuddled close to me.

It wouldn’t occur to me until much later that I hadn’t bothered to shout a thank you or shown any appreciation at all to my savior. I had no clue if he was any better than the scumbag who had grabbed me, but he had at least kept my daughter safe, so I owed him, even if he was one of countless things in this forever dark place that scared the life out of me.

People didn’t help other people in this neighborhood… but he had stopped and helped me, whether his intentions were altruistic or not.

And I owed him… well… at the very least, more than a piece of cake.

Exclusive Excerpt:

My happy puppy greets me as soon as I slip inside the house, the air conditioning a welcome reprieve from the heat outside. I bend down and give her a quick pet behind the ears before leading her to the back door. She runs off, anxious to do her business, while I head back inside to take a quick shower.

I don’t wash my hair, but shave and exfoliate all of the important areas. When I’m smooth and clean, I jump out of the shower, anxious to head over to Latham’s. I smother lotion over every square inch of my body, the rich scents of jasmine and vanilla wrapping around me. I touch up my makeup, darkening my eyes in that sultry way I used to do daily, but now save for special occasions.

Then, I head for my dresser. I already know which one I want. After spending a few minutes with Adrian and feeling the anticipation she was experiencing, I dig out my own black bustier and matching thong set. Mine is an older style, though, with deep red piping and a black lace overlay. Carefully, I snap the back and glance in the mirror. It dips dangerously low, showcasing my cleavage and pushing my breasts together magnificently. The lace thong is sexy, enticing, and bold. Perfect.

I snap the garter belt into place and roll on a pair of stockings. Then, I return to my closet and find my dark blue sundress. It’s shorter than the others and will barely hide the stockings that hit just above mid-thigh. It too will be perfect. Keeping my hair up, I retwist it into a knot, letting only a few tendrils of hair hang around my face.

Taking one last look in the mirror, I slip on my too-high strappy sandals, swipe dark gloss over my lips, and head out of my room. I make a quick pit stop at the back door and call Snuggles. She’s not too happy to be coming in from outside, but when I produce a treat from the cabinet, she hightails it out of her doghouse and trots up the back steps like her tail is on fire. It wags furiously as she sits like a good girl and shakes for her treat. After a few more minutes of showering her with affection, I fill her food and water bowls, and make sure she’s settled for the evening.

Then, I head back to my car.

It’s only a few blocks from downtown where my business is, and even though I try to keep the windows open to enjoy the early evening breeze, it’s just too hot outside, or maybe I’m a little too nervous. Too sweaty. So I roll up the windows and crank on the air. As soon as I do, I hear a poof sound, and it’s suddenly raining.

Not liquid, though.

This is sparkly particles of hell flying through the air and landing everywhere.

Everywhere.

Glitter.

So. Much. Glitter.

I stop at the stop sign, spitting the sliver sparkles from my mouth and glance around. My entire car is covered in it. My dress. My arms. My face.

Dirty rotten bastard, son of the devil asshole jerk!

He’s. So. Fucking. Dead.

That inked bad boy who’s been flirting hard with me since he rode into town? Turns out he’s my new housemate, which is one hell of a problem since our chemistry is so hot it should be illegal.

 

I have a fantastic family, great best friends, a job I love…and now I’m up for a promotion to police sergeant. I need total focus—not a flirty, dirty, irresistible, tattooed hottie riding into my town on his motorcycle. Can I arrest him for being too good-looking? When he kisses me senseless in the back of a waffle truck, it’s criminal, the things he makes me think about hot syrup and melted butter. One order of hot, fluffy hookup to go, please.
But the next time I see him, it’s not for our date with benefits. He’s the guy who just rented the room above my garage.
I need the rent to pay my bills, not a man like Derek, who I soon discover to be strong, caring, generous, good with kids, and kind to puppies… If I’m not careful, he’ll be moving into my heart as well as my house.

***

A no-strings-attached fling with the fiery redhead who revs my engine? Why, yes, that does sound like a delicious perk of my new job in this new town, thank you very much. I’m coming off a bad relationship, and I have zero interest in anything serious. I’ve got all the serious I need helping my sister take care of her three little kids while her husband is deployed.
Except, surprise! Perri isn’t just my future fling. Turns out she’s my sexy, sassy landlord.
A lease definitely counts as “strings attached,” and as much as I’d like to get tangled in her sheets, I can’t let myself get tangled up in a relationship.
But as soon as we put the cuffs on our escapades, I learn over late-night conversations in the kitchen, that my landlord is so much more than the sexiest woman I’ve ever met– she has a quick mind and the biggest heart.

Once I’m in, I’m all in. And to convince her that we should see where this goes, I plan on turning up the heat—and not just in the kitchen.

Sandra's Review

The Feel Good Factor is Lauren Blakely’s next sinfully sexy standalone. If you read Best Laid Plans then you have already met Perri, Arden’s sassy cop best friend. You also would have quickly met Derek, the just her type man she pulls over. I knew their story was going to be hot but fuck…
Derek is an EMT and new to town. He is there to help his sister with her three kids while Jodie’s husband is deployed oversees. Perri is a cop who is up for a promotion. She also happens to need a housemate. She never expected him to be on her doorstep especially after their hot as sin make-out session. There is no way it’s a good idea to have him living in her house even if it’s above the garage. But, they are adults. They make ground rules. That’s enough right?
Yeah. I laughed at that too.
If you read the synopsis, you know what’s up. I will say that Derek is an epic dirty talker. Omg. It’s so fucking hot, you guys. And the slow burn between them makes it even hotter. For real though, there is more to this couple then just mind-blowing kisses and sex. They have a connection beyond the bedroom. It’s sweet, funny, and swoony. I loved them!
Overall…it’s a fast read that definitely made me feel good. Real good. I laughed. I cried. I got all kids of heated. Damn, Lauren can write a sexy scene even with just air kisses! I fell for the characters. The story. The writing.
Quotes:
“Tell me your name. I’m dying to know.”
“Why do you need it so badly?”
“So I know what name to say when I’m fantasizing.”
“Let’s get one thing straight,” he growls. “What this is? It’s not attraction. It’s stronger. More intense. It’s red-hot fucking desire. It’s raw and it’s carnal, and it’s so much dirtier than attraction.”
“Perri?”
“Yeah?”
“Are you a good witch or a bad witch?”
I turn around, cataloging the naughty glint in his eyes. “Guess you’ll have to wait and see.”

The Feel Good Factor is Lauren Blakely’s newest sexy bad boy, hot cop romance. Derek rode into town with his tattoos and sexiness only to be pulled over by Perri, resident police officer and the best friend of Arden and Vanessa. Lauren does something no other author can do, she introduces new characters and you can never pick your favorite! Just when you think “This is my favorite couple!” you meet the next one and then they are your favorite! It’s a gift of Lauren’s.

When we met Perri in Best Laid Plans, I knew her story was going to be great! She’s strong, sexy, independent.

Perri isn’t looking for distractions. She wants to further the career she’s worked so hard for. Derek is new to town to help out his sister and her kids. He’s a distraction she doesn’t need but wants so badly. So what’s a little fun no strings fling between new friends? Even if they are roomies? As the fling heats up and the strings become tangled will Derek and Perri realize there’s more to just having fun? Will they be able to put aside their pasts and move forward with each other? Wow. I loved this story! I didn’t realize how fast I was going to fall for both Derek and Perri! She’s a kickbutt cop with the smarts and looks. She’s the whole package. Derek my look like a bad boy with the motorcycle and tattoos, but he’s a big softy with his nieces and nephew. I was swooning all over the place every time he held the baby! Derek likes to take control and Perri likes to give it up. A match made in Heaven. Overall, I laughed, teared up, got very hot and bothered, sighed, smiled and cheered for them! And the notes? Good God, I was a puddle of mush with the notes! Lauren is a romance genius!

 

Out of nowhere, I picture dark scruff, chocolate-brown irises, hair that’s nearly black with a wild wave to it. Big hands, toned arms, and ink as far as the eye can see, caressing biceps and triceps and forearms, oh my.

Derek McBride.

 

“Let’s get one thing straight,” he growls. “What this is? It’s not attraction. It’s stronger. More intense. It’s red-hot fucking desire. It’s raw and it’s carnal, and it’s so much dirtier than attraction.”

And I’m so much more turned on than I was.

Excerpt

~DEREK~

Today is my lucky day.

I’d like to thank my sister for getting my ass out of bed.

I’d like to thank my niece for telling me the nice lady with the paints had just made her way down the veggie aisle.

And I’d like to thank fate that this avocado stand is in an out-of-the-way corner of the market, and that the farmer running it must have had to take one hell of a leak.

It’s just us.

This woman is fiery, flirty, and already driving me out of my mind. The stream of market-goers has thinned to a crawl as we near closing time, and left us in a cocoon of raw lust.

I place the fruit on the red-and-white-checkered tablecloth, brush my fingers over her hip, and tug her against me. She lets out the sexiest little sound. “Tell me your name. I’m dying to know.”

“Why do you need it so badly?”

“So I know what name to say when I’m fantasizing.”

A murmur crosses her lips, and she leans her head back against me, her hair spilling down my chest. “Are you fantasizing about me?”

“Every. Single. Night.”

“You must be having a log of long nights, Mr. Trouble.”

“Long, hard nights…Miss Demeanor,” I say with a smirk, trying that nickname on for size.

“Well played.”

“Thank you. It just came to me.”

She glances back at me, her green eyes looking rife with dirty thoughts. “Do you want to come down to the station with me?”

“I want your name, beautiful. Give me your name,” I growl into her ear, commanding her.

“Perri,” she says breathlessly, her voice betraying her longing. A longing that matches mine.

“Perri,” I repeat, tasting her name on my tongue.

Her voice tightens to a warning and sharpens as she speaks. “Don’t say it.”

I narrow my brow in question. “Say what?”

“Don’t say it’s a guy’s name.”

I laugh lightly in her ear, jerking her ass closer to my hard-on. “Do you honestly believe I’m thinking for one second about guys right now?”

She lets out a gasp, chased by a soft moan. “I don’t know. What exactly are you thinking about?”

I drag my scruff against her neck. “How close I am to getting a ticket for indecent everything.”

She wriggles her sexy rear against me. “I’d say everything feel way more than decent.”

I groan as a dart of lust shoots down my spine. I’d like to find a way to kiss the breath out of her right here, right now.

She tenses against me, her body straightening like a ruler, and my gaze flicks to the new crowd of people streaming around the corner, heading toward us.

Fuck me.

He is everything she’s ever wanted.

He doesn’t even know she exists.

Her life is a joke.

Kara's Review

I’m a new fan of Lani Lynn Vale and I can’t even express how mad I am at myself for not reading her sooner! I was hooked from the very first page and literally didn’t put it down until I was finished! Lani’s writing is fresh, her characters so likable, the story full of fun, hilariousness, sexiness, suspense, more fun and more sexiness. Raleigh has had a crush on Ezra McDuff, the football and baseball coach, for the school where she teachers, since she was a little girl. Years and years were spent watching, fantasizing and wanting him. He never saw her. After one of her many falls, trips and crazy accidents, she literally falls at his feet. Then runs. Now he sees her, wants her and he’s not going to give up until he catches her. Raleigh can’t catch a break. She trips on thin air, falls over nothing and now she has to do it with Coach McDuff watching her. When he asks her out, she feel as if all her dreams have come true. She doesn’t hesitate to say yes and their first date ends in tornado of emotions and a sexy as sin romp that she’s been dreaming about for years. There are a few obstacles. But nothing is going to stop Ezra from making Raleigh his. She couldn’t put up a fight even if she wanted to. Can Raleigh forgive Ezra for never seeing her? Will Ezra make up for their lost time. I LOVED THIS STORY! So. Effing. Much! I laughed out loud while my husband just shook his head at me. I got hot and bothered, laughed more, cheered, cringed and fell hard and fast for Ezra. He’s sexy, smart, funny, loves his sister, best friend and nieces and nephews. Treats his players like men, would do anything for them. Loves Raleigh’s quirks and loves her more with each trip, fall and trip to the doctor. He’s not the same person he was when he was eighteen. He’s a good man and now that he has a good woman, he’s not going to let her get away. Every time he called her darlin’ I melted! Raleigh is a hot mess! But she cares about her students, embraces her bad luck and just can’t believe her crush wants her back. Better late than never. I loved how mature they were. They talked about their feelings, shared their fears. They are adults and acted like it! He didn’t have a problem with the teams, teachers, entire town knowing how much he wanted his woman!

This is one of those books that as soon as I was done with it I wanted to start it all over again. That’s how much I loved it.

 

His ass was encased in a pair of jeans that molded delectably to his ass so perfectly that I wanted to write the makers of Levi Jeans a letter and tell them they should get an award.

 

“I haven’t been quiet about my feelings for her. It’s not my fault that y’all are just exceptionally unobservant.”

 

“It may have taken me a long time to see you, but once you were there, I’ll never be able to look away. Not ever again.”

Fleeting by Carrie Aarons

Available Now | Nash Brothers, #1

Read it for FREE in Kindle Unlimited

Book Blurb:

Presley McDaniel lives her life from moment to moment.

Making permanent decisions means obligation, and that would force her to stop being the family disappointment. Waitress, fitness instructor, dog walker … you name the hourly job and she’s probably held the position.

But when her grandmother can no longer run her book shop in Fawn Hill, a town so small it barely has its own zip code, Presley steps up to help.

The move from bustling city to green pastures may be exactly what she needs to sort out her life. But she didn’t ask for that happy ending to include a gorgeous veterinarian with an all-American smile and a penchant for snuggling puppies. The good doctor is reliable, responsible, and just the kind of man Presley has always avoided.

Love and commitment are predictable.

So why, the moment she lays eyes on him, are they all she wants?

Keaton Nash has never questioned his steady path.

His brothers may tease him about settling into his father’s passed-down role of small town veterinarian, but Keaton has never minded his rural roots. And after tragedy struck two years ago, he has a duty as the eldest Nash man to look after his family.

What he doesn’t need is the sexy, flighty stranger who shows up in town and gets his broken heart beating again. Presley McDaniel is a distraction, a red-headed temptation that is the definition of a bad idea.

He’s barely recovered from the love who left him to chase bigger dreams, and this woman is bound to do the same.

Except for the first time ever, he wants to abandon stability.

She makes him want to be reckless.

Sandra's Review

Fleeting is the first book in the Nash Brothers series by Carrie Aarons. I have been following Carrie’s words for years now and I know if I open one of her books I am going to fall in love. And I did just that once again.
Keaton Nash is a small town veterinarian. Presley is a city wanderer. He takes care of his family. She is the black sheep of hers. He loved math in high school. She enjoyed ditching school to make dreamcatchers. He had plans. She had yoga pants.
Keaton did not expect her. Of course he knew there was a new woman in town. A granddaughter who was helping Hattie, the owner of the bookstore slash post office but he was not expecting her. A beautiful redhead who made him laugh at first word. One who made him fumble. He did not fumble. Ever. He hasn’t dated anyone in two years and was doing just fine. Until now. He had to ask her out even if he made a mess of things. There was just something about her that made him want to toss his predictable ways.
Presley was so embarrassed. Her grandma could have warned her the town Vet was this hot. He was also adorable. The way he had finally asked her out days later was the cutest thing ever. But, he deserved more. She wasn’t even sure if she was going to be staying in town. He seemed like the kind of man who wanted a wife at home, two point five children, and a picket fence. She was not that girl. She was the complete opposite of that girl. He had a tight knit family while hers was anything but. Then something happened between them…
Now, I can’t tell you exactly what but I can say it was sweet, smooth, and a start to something. I will say that I loved them. Keaton really is freaking adorable and confident at the same time. He also has other sides to him that only Presley could get him to show. And Presley, she is more than she believes. She is a flight or fight kind of girl. She has to decide where she belongs. In a small town or a big city.
Overall…it’s a sweet, sexy, and adorable story full of love, family, animals, yoga, and bad decisions. The best kind. I can’t wait for the next book! There is a sneak peak at the end of the book. If you follow my reviews you know I don’t read the synopsis if I have read the author’s work so I didn’t go there but I know it’s going to be an emotional ride.
Quotes:
“I’m a vet in small-town Pennsylvania. If I walked around here asking everyone to call me Dr. Nash, they’d think I was a stuck-up prick.”
“I won’t tell you how many times I’ve had to loosen my belt on the afternoons I eat there.” And now I’m telling her about unbuckling my pants. Great. I have absolutely zero game.
“Your body … it was made for me to touch.”

What Reviewers Are Saying…

“So what do I need to do to find a quaint little town like Fawn Hill? And some Nash brothers? Because good golly Miss Molly I am in love with everything here!” -The Book Branch

“This book is fabulous…I had a smile on my face for most of it. I read this book in one sitting, it is a pager turner.” -Goodreads Reviewer

“I suggest y’all grab a copy when it releases on March 14th! Scratch that … I’m TELLING you to! Mrs. Aarons has won my heart over with these boys already.” -Goodreads Reviewer

Hide Your Crazy Cover Reveal By Lani Lynn Vale

March 14, 2019 By

 

 

 

I’m kind of a lady, but definitely more of a weirdo.

Hearing the woman at the table behind him say that to her friend should’ve turned Logan Gibbs off.

It doesn’t. In all honesty, it only makes him listen harder.

He’s had enough weird in his life to last a lifetime. The last thing his complicated life needs is a woman in it who has no clue what color you get when you mix yellow and blue together.

Yet, her obvious blonde moments aren’t enough to deter him. Nor is her lack of finger-painting skills.

I’m a cop, not a miracle worker.

Hearing the man in the group behind her say that should’ve had Katy Roberts running away as fast as her feet would carry her. Katy’s father’s a cop, and it’s hard enough to live her life with Daddy trying to dictate her every move. She needs another cop in her life like she needs yet another thing to go wrong.

To add onto that, she can’t find a job, has no love life to speak of, and has to be the oldest known virgin in Kilgore, Texas.

Yet, when she sees his painting—a painting that resembles a piece of the male anatomy more than the lighthouse they were supposed to be painting—she knows that she has to give him a chance.

The very last thing the two of them expect is for her father and his boss to force them to marry after an eensy-weensy accident. An accident that, surprisingly, both of them want.

Cover Reveal – Twisted, Aleatha Romig

March 13, 2019 By

 

The underworld of Chicago is far from forgiving. It’s a world where knowledge means power, power money, and money everything.

While I paid the ultimate price to have it all, it wasn’t my decision to give up my life.

That doesn’t mean I ceased to exist, only to live.

Going where the job takes me and living in the shadows, with deadly accuracy I utilize the skills inherent to me, not knowing from where they came, not recalling what I’d lost.

And then I saw her.

Laurel Carlson.

I shouldn’t want her, desire her, or need her, yet with each sighting I know she is exactly what I have to have. Laurel has the ability to do what I thought was impossible. She sees what others don’t.

My gut tells me that it’s a deadly mistake to change my plans and open my world to her. My mind says she’ll be repulsed by my twisted existence.

None of that matters, because my body won’t take no for an answer.

I’ve made dangerous mistakes before.

This time, will the price be too high?

 

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new dark romance bringing us back to the same dangerous underworld as SECRETS. You do not need to read the Web of Sin trilogy to get caught in this new and intriguing saga, Tangled Web.

TWISTED is book one of the TANGLED WEB trilogy which will continue in OBSESSED and conclude in BOUND.
