Moti ebook edit.jpg

Meet Moti Ferreira—spectacularly jinxed from the day she’s born.

Saddled with an eccentric mother, she stumbles upon the one man who holds the key to her freedom—the best man at her cousin’s upcoming wedding.

All Moti has to do is overcome her fear of water, board a yacht to the Greek Isles, seduce the dreamy Nikos Manolas, and survive two weeks at sea with her oddball family.

The only obstacle Moti doesn’t see coming is Alexandros Veronis, the onboard chef and star witness to her awkward mishaps. He transforms onions into chocolate and aroma into nostalgia. Day by day, his alchemy works its magic on Moti. But she’s not the only one falling under his spell. Everyone has a secret, growing round and ripe at Chef Alex’s table. When the masks fall off, they spill out one by one, and everything blows up in their faces.

Now Moti’s truth is exposed, and worse, she’s hooked on more than Alex’s midnight snacks. But this time, screwing up could be the best thing she’s ever done…

Release Day & Review – Making Up, Helena Hunting

July 16, 2019 By

MU - RB banner

“I LOVED both Cosy and Griffin! This story was ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!”- Kendall Ryan, New York Times bestselling author

Making Up an all-new laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is available now!

Making Up_ebook

Cosy Felton is great at her job—she knows just how to handle the awkwardness that comes with working at an adult toy store. So when the hottest guy she’s ever seen walks into the shop looking completely overwhelmed, she’s more than happy to turn on the charm and help him purchase all of the items on his list.

Griffin Mills is using his business trip in Las Vegas as a chance to escape the broken pieces of his life in New York City. The last thing he wants is to be put in charge of buying gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. Despite being totally out of his element, and mortified by the whole experience, Griffin is pleasantly surprised when he finds himself attracted to the sales girl that helped him.

As skeptical as Cosy may be of Griffin’s motivations, there’s something about him that intrigues her. But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and when real life gets in the way, all bets are off. Filled with hilariously awkward situations and enough sexual chemistry to power Sin City, Making Up is the next standalone in the Shacking Up world.

Kara's Review

Making Up is the fourth book in the Shacking Up series by the talented and hilarious Helena Hunting. I love this series and I never doubt that Helena is going to give me exactly what I need. This is Griffin’s story. He’s Lexington and Bancroft’s brother and you know we’ve been waiting for him to get his happily ever after! He’s in Vegas on business and has to buy the gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. That’s where he meets Cosy. At the sex toy shop. He’s embarrassed out of his mind and she’s young, fresh, confident and gorgeous. Cosy never trusts men who come into the shop. You never know if they’re freaks or not, but this man is so gorgeous, she’s temporarily dumbstruck. She uses her assets to sell him more than what he needs and watches him walk away. Only to show up weeks later and ask her out. Awkward! He’s so freaking cute with the way he stammers. He’s thirty-three he should be able to ask a woman out! Cosy takes pity on him and his handsome face and goes out this him. They are opposites but they just get each other. He’s rich and fancy. She’s a struggling student. But their attraction is off the charts. He’s only in town for a while, so they decide to see each other while he’s there. Things are fun and sexy, and easy. And then those pesky feelings start to happen. And then the past comes back to get them? Can Cosy and Griffin survive and fight for each other? I loved this story! This series is one of my favorites and Helena always cracks me up, makes me swoon and leaves me wanting more! I loved it all! The shwarma in her shirt? OMG! The crazy awkwardness. Griffin’s lack of game. Poor thing! Total perfection!

 

“You know that guy?”

“What guy?”

“The one who looks like a mobster mated with a superhero?”

“That’s exactly what I thought the first time I saw him.”

Blog Tour, 5 Heart Review & Excerpt – Teardrop Shot, Tijan

June 27, 2019 By

TS - BT banner

Teardrop Shot, an all-new sexy and angst filled sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Tijan is available now!

Teardrop Shot Ebook Cover

I asked for his criteria for bed buddies–that’s the PG version.

He swore at me and said he didn’t do groupies. And just like that, our friendship was off to a great start.

Reese Forster was the starting point guard for the Seattle Thunder.

Gorgeous. Cocky. Loved by the nation.

He’s also attending preseason basketball training camp where I used to work.

Correction: where I work again, because I was fired from my last job.

And dumped.

And I might have a tiny bit of baggage, but that’s normal. Right?

Reese and I shouldn’t have become friends. We shouldn’t have become roommates.

And we really shouldn’t have started sleeping together … (Except we did.)

I’m adorably psychotic. He’s in the NBA.

This is not a disaster waiting to happen, at all.

Teardrop Shot is a 107k standalone with brand new characters.

Kara's Review

Tijan has done it again with her newest romance! Teardrop Shot is everything you want in a romance. Humor, lust, sports, awkwardness, angst, friendship, and sexy characters. Tijan has a way of surprising me every single time. I know when I pick up one of her books I’m going to be entertained. But the emotions always catch me off guard. Her writing is getting better. Her characters deeper and her stories more meaningful. Charlie is a huge basketball fan. She’s also quirky and a little crazy. Her life is complicated and she’s just trying to get through the day. When she gets an offer from an old friend for a job she can’t turn it down. She realizes she missed her friends. A lot. She still says kooky things and acts a little crazy, but they still love her. That’s friendship. Then she finds out her favorite basketball team is going to be there. With her. For weeks. Reese is a starting point guard and he’s fantastic at his job. Basketball saved him and it’s his lifeline now. Then he meets the crazy chick working at camp. She says the strangest things and does this thing where she asks questions. And to her surprise, he answers them. She’s nuts but he can’t help but like her. She’s hot and quirky but he doesn’t have time for women. But there’s just something about her. She makes him laugh. Lets him forget his own troubles. They become friends. Share intimate stories of their families and lives and eventually more. Reese wants more. Charlie doesn’t know what she wants. She knows she wants him, but is that enough? They have to figure out how to move forward. Together. But can they? I loved the relationship between Reese and Charlie. It’s complicated and simple at the same time. They have an obvious attraction, but it’s more than that. There’s a connection that goes beyond the physical. They just get each other. When you decide you want to put it all on the line for happiness you have to be true to yourself. You have to make mistakes before you can know what you really want. Charlie and Reese fight to be together. For their happiness and for love.

Excerpt:

He came out, all ready, saw me, and shook his head.

Giving him the biggest smile I could muster, I handed over his coffee and dangled my keys. “Let’s go.”

My neighbor was coming home from his night shift at a factory. He was trudging down the hallway when he saw us, lifted a hand in greeting, then stopped. His head shot upright and his shoulders stiffened.

He rotated swiftly on his heels, his eyes wide and bulging. He held up a hand. “Is that—”

“No.” Lying. Another superhero quality of mine. “It’s late, Bill. That’s my brother.”

Reese squashed a laugh and nodded to the guy. “What’s up.” It wasn’t a question, but a greeting, and he hustled me past my neighbor.

I gave Reese a look as we went to my underground parking spot. “He’s going to hammer me later. He’ll know he wasn’t seeing things.”

“He’s a fan?”

“The biggest.”

Reese smirked, meeting my gaze over the top of my car. “Bigger than you?”

We were entering cheesy territory here. We needed to scale it back.

“I have a cardboard cutout of you,” I told him. “In my closet.”

He froze. “You’re joking.”

I was, but now I had to buy one. “Wouldn’t you like to think that.” Settling into my chair, I felt better—more familiar terrain again. “But the funny thing is, next time you come, you won’t know if I was serious or if I bought him after I told you.”

Reese just rolled his eyes, putting the coffees in the cup holders for both of us.

He was looking around as I pulled out of the lot. “This is actually a nice place.”

“The underground parking is nice. The apartment building itself is okay. Nothing great.” I didn’t tell him how the lights in the laundry room would dim, so if I used those machines, I had to prop the door open with a rock. Or how I’d only do my clothes between seven in the morning and nine. Nine was the latest. After that, people were stirring, and there were a few neighbors I wasn’t so sure about.

Reese whistled as I pulled up to departures seven minutes later. “You weren’t kidding. That’s close.”

“And you’ve barely had your coffee.”

He yawned now, blinking a few times. “I’ll grab some inside. You can have it.”

I parked, but didn’t shut off the engine.

“Do not get out,” he warned.

I grinned. “Wasn’t planning on it. We really don’t need to go to that level, with the hugging, would we kiss or not… Too many strings, friend.”

He smiled back, but his eyes had started to smolder a bit. He leaned over, dropping his voice, “I’ll answer one of those questions.” His lips caught mine in a good, firm kiss, one that sent my senses spiraling and stole just the slightest bit of oxygen from my lungs.

I might’ve needed to gather my bearings as he pulled back and grabbed his bag from the back. Before he turned, he gave me a second kiss, this one lighter. “Go home. Go to bed,” he said as he reached for the door. “Text me when you park, and again when you’re inside your place. Humor me. I’m a friend. I can care.”

He was starting to leave, but I tugged on his shirt.

He paused, looking back.

“And after that?” I asked.

“We’re friends. Let’s play it by ear.”

Our gazes held, a shared reminder of the other details in our agreement. I saw his darkening, so I let go. “Okey-dokey. Hope you don’t get mauled.”

He laughed. “It’s too early for that.”

But we both knew the truth. It could happen.

As if reading my mind, he amended, “It’s usually not that bad. If it is—and I don’t think it will be—airport security is good with celebrities here. They’ve got a special room and everything. Plus…” He reached in his bag and pulled out a baseball hat, dragging it low over his eyes and flicking up his hood. “This is pretty incognito.”

His height wasn’t, but I decided to pick my battles. “I’ll expect twenty questions by the time you land.”

He laughed. “Don’t think so. I’m going to be sleeping that whole time, but I’ll text you updates just to annoy you.” He got out, but bent back down, his tone more serious. “Do me a favor? Only take that job if you want it. Don’t take it because you feel desperate. I can loan you money, if anything.”

That wiped all joking aside. “Reese.” Dammit. “I’ll never lose myself in a guy again. Ever.”

“Yeah, but before you didn’t have a friend who could loan you money until you got to a place where you could pick something that actually made you happy.” His eyes flashed a warning. “Now you do. Just think about it. It’s a loan. I’d give one to another friend in the same spot.”

I rolled my eyes.

He chuckled. “Drive safe. I liked screwing you. Let’s do it again and soon.”

“I changed my mind. Get mauled!”

I could hear his laugh as he shut the door and headed inside, his bag over his shoulder. Only a couple guys squinted at him, their heads cocked to the side. He was right. His incognito look really was incognito, but he was still frustrating.

And I was hoping for thesoontoo.

Driving back, my phone kept buzzing.

Reese: Checking in.

Reese: I had to check my bag. It’s too big for a carry-on.

Reese: Two autographs.

Reese: Going up the escalator now.

Reese: At the security line. The guards are cool. They promised not to be angry when Thunder beats the Coyotes.

Reese: Through security.

He knew I couldn’t answer. I was driving.

Reese: I’m at gate A6.

Reese: This is a nice airport. I always forget till I get here.

Reese: I upgraded to first class.

Reese: Coach wants to make sure I get back in time for meetings this morning.

Reese: Still not boarding. Just letting you know.

After parking, I grabbed my phone.

Me: It’s supposed to be questions. Like, if I asked security if I could put a body in my bag, could I still check it? Questions like that. You’re not following the rules.

Reese: Fuck the rules. These are my rules.

Reese: You do questions. I do updates. Deal with it.

Reese: Except now. Are you back at your place?

Me: Yes. Walking upstairs now.

Reese: No updates from you. Well. Yes. Tell me when you get in your place.

I turned down my hallway. Bill’s door opened and his head popped out. His hair was scruffed up like he’d been trying for a Mohawk. “No bullshit. Was that him?”

I was about to break a fellow Reese Forster fan’s heart. “It was my brother.”

He glared. “You’re not fucking with me?”

“No.”

“Oh.”

That was it.

His head went back in, and he slammed his door shut.

Immediately Mrs. Rings yelled from her apartment across the hall. “STOP SLAMMING THE DOORS! EVERYONE FUCKING SHUT IT!”

And her parrot a second later.

“STOP SLAMMING FUCKING SHUT IT!”

And then, “SHUT IT, BORIS!”

And her parrot again, “EVERYONE FUCK IT AND GO TO SLEEP!”

Release Day & Review – The Accidental Girlfriend, Emma Hart

June 25, 2019 By

TAGlive2.jpg

The Accidental Girlfriend, an all-new hilarious romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is available now!

THE ACCIDENTAL GIRLFRIEND - DRAFT1 (1).jpg

Top Tip: Don’t put out an online ad offering your services as a fake date. Someone will take you up on it.

And it won’t just be for one night.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I ended up being Mason Jackson’s fake girlfriend.

He didn’t even want me to be. No—his sister was solely responsible for me being his date for his ten-year high school reunion.

Now, she’s responsible for telling his parents our relationship is real.

We have no choice. We have to act like this isn’t all a mistake, like it’s not all fake, like we’re totally, completely, utterly, head-over-heels in love with each other.

Simple, right?

Wrong.

Sandra's Review

The Accidental Girlfriend is Emma Hart’s newest hilarious rom-com. I know when I open one of her Emma’s books I am about to laugh my ass off and fall in love at the same time. With the story. With the characters. With the writing. The synopsis is perfect so I will try to make this fast.

Lauren’s friends and sister want her to date. Mason’s family wants him to move on. During friends’ night an Ad is posted online. One fake date. She never thought someone would actually answer it. Well, someone did. For their brother. And he wasn’t happy about it. That was until she made a point. A date to his class reunion would piss his ex off. What he didn’t expect was to like his fake date. Not enough to make it a real one but it was enough to have a fun night. That was the deal. One night. That was until he turned into a fake relationship.

She didn’t want a boyfriend. He didn’t want a girlfriend. A fake one or not but they were stuck. And if they were going to pull this off then at least it would be with someone that made them laugh. And being hot AF helped too. Too bad one of the rules was to keep it PG. Will they break the rules? Of course. But that doesn’t mean it can be real, right?

OMFG! Lauren is definitely hard work as Mason would say and I loved it. She doesn’t make anything easy and it’s one of the Things I loved about her. And Mason…oh, Mason. He is just as much of a smartass. A hot smartass with a crazy ass family. Together, their banter is hilarious, sarcastic, and sweet. It’s also flirty and so much fun!

Overall…it’s hilarious, sweet, sexy, and fun. The characters are lovable and real. I might just have a lady crush on Lauren. I definitely love Mason.

Quotes:

“Listen—I was on Craigslist—”
“No good story ever started with that.”

“Your mind must be a wonderful place.”
“You have no idea.”

“Is there anything about her that’s simple?”
“No. She’s like a little labyrinth. Just when I think I’m breaking her down and finding something out about her, a fucking hedge pops up, and I can’t go any further.”

About Emma Hart

Blog Tour & 6 Heart Review – The Lemon Sisters, Jill Shalvis

June 21, 2019 By

The New York Times bestselling author of Rainy Day Friends and Lost and Found Sisters returns to Wildstone, California, where two completely opposite sisters—who are still nursing wounds from the past—realize they need each other more than they think.

The Lemon Sisters, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Jill Shalvis is LIVE!

LemonSisters cover.jpeg

When Brooke’s older sister, Mindy, shows up at her door with her three kids in tow, she barely recognizes her sibling who looks like she’s on the verge of a total breakdown. While adventurous, wanderlust Brooke was always the problem child, eager to slip free of Wildstone and its small-town constraints, Mindy was the golden child, who never had a hair out of place or a GPA below 4.0. The Mindy that arrives at Brooke’s apartment however, is a far cry from the ever-perfect doctor’s wife.

Brooke’s further stunned when Mindy asks to trade places with her for a few days so she can pick up her pieces and put herself back together. What Mindy doesn’t realize is that Brooke is just as broken. Her sister needs her though, so Brooke takes the kids and returns to Wildstone.

But how does one go home after seven years away and what feels like a lifetime of secrets? It doesn’t take long for Brooke to come face-to-face with her past, in the form of one tall, dark, sexy mistake. But Garrett’s no longer interested, or so he says. Only his words don’t match his actions, leaving Brooke feeling things she long ago shoved deep.

The sisters begin to wonder if the childhood taunts were true, are they lemons in life? In love? True or not, they know one thing—you can’t run far enough to outpace your demons. And when long-dead secrets surface, they’ll have to overcome their differences and learn that sometimes the one person who can help you the most is the one you never thought to ask.

The Lemon Sisters is the third book in the Wildstone series by the talented Jill Shalvis. I’m a huge fan of Jill’s and have read over fifty of her books and I have to say The Lemon Sisters is my favorite! I don’t know what I love more about this book. The sisters who love each other, but fight. The kids who remind me so much of my own, the husband and best friend who are funny, sexy and flawed. There was just so much real in the book that I was laughing out loud and reading sections of it to my husband while I giggled. Jill’s writing is always fantastic, but she took it to another level with this book. The emotion, the humor, the sadness, the truth. It gave me all the feels! Mindy is married with three kids. She shows up on her sister, Brooke’s doorstep and she’s a mess. She’s overwhelmed, upset, and lost. Her husband works too much, she doesn’t feel good about herself, she’s tired, sad and can’t stop crying.

Brooke offers to take care of her kids for a few days so she can rest and relax. And she ends up taking them back home and figures it’s a good time for her to mend some of her own fences. Mainly the sexy, handsome neighbor who she loved years ago and just left without a word. Garrett isn’t as open to talking as Brooke would have liked, but she needs to apologize. She’s only there a few days so what does it matter. Except Mindy doesn’t want to come home yet, Brooke needs to have a much needed talk with Mindy’s husband, Linc, and the kids need her. She gives Mindy the time she needs and she realizes she also needs time. Time to find herself again. To let go of the past. To let her family in. Making amends just isn’t enough. She misses her family, friends and Wildstone. But can she just come back home? What about her life in LA? This story was more emotional than I thought it was going to be. Brooke’s past, her anxiety, Mindy’s control issues, Linc being oblivious to what is going on around him. And Garrett’s past and his intimacy issues. And the kids. Oh my, the kids! I loved them all so much! They were some of the best secondary characters I’ve ever read! All of it was done so well! These are real issues and they aren’t fun and games, but Jill uses humor and she created these strong, vulnerable characters who actually learn from each other and realize they are all stronger together! It’s one of my favorites of the year!

 

“What’s it like to be a grown up?” Mason wanted to know.

“Well, you get to eat ice cream whenever and wherever you want.”

His face lit up.

“But you have to buy it yourself.”

He went from delighted to devastated.

Aaaannnnnd her work here was done.

 

“I hate it when someone says something like ‘head east’. Who am I, Lewis and Clark? Do we turn right or left from the food truck in the parking lot?”

Garrett smiled. “I forgot that you could locate any food source without direction, but other than that you get lost finding your way out of a paper bag.”

 

“Do you know why mommies and daddies pretend to be the tooth fairy? Because they love their kids so much that they want them to have the joy of waking up the morning after they lose a tooth to find their prize. It’s a tradition, and it makes parents as happy as it makes their kids.”

“So giving me money makes you happy?”

“Anyone ever tell you that you’re too smart for you own good?”

“You, Daddy. All the time.”

 

“Marriage.” Garrett said in the tone of an off-camera narrator. “When dating goes too far.”

“Someone tell the old cat lady to stay out of this,” Linc said.

Garett told Linc he was number one with his middle finger.

Chapter Reveal – Handle with Care, Helena Hunting

June 21, 2019 By

Handle With Care, an all-new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is coming August 27th, and we have a sneak peek!

12_13_Handle With Care (1)

HE WANTS TO LOSE CONTROL.

Between his parents’ messed up marriage and his narcissistic younger brother, Lincoln Moorehead has spent the majority of his life avoiding his family. After the death of his father, Lincoln finds himself in the middle of the drama. To top it all off, he’s been named CEO of Moorehead Media, much to his brother’s chagrin. But Lincoln’s bad attitude softens when he meets the no-nonsense, gorgeous woman who has been given the task of transforming him from the gruff, wilderness guy to a suave businessman

SHE’S TRYING TO HOLD IT TOGETHER.

Wren Sterling has been working double time to keep the indiscretions at Moorehead Media at bay, so when she’s presented with a new contract, with new responsibilities and additional incentives, she agrees. Working with the reclusive oldest son of a ridiculously entitled family is worth the hassle if it means she’s that much closer to pursuing her own dreams. What Wren doesn’t expect is to find herself attracted to him, or for it to be mutual. And she certainly doesn’t expect to fall for Lincoln. But when a shocking new Moorehead scandal comes to light, she’s forced to choose between her own family and the broody, cynical CEO.

Excerpt from Chapter One

Chapter One

What Have I Gotten Myself into?

Wren

I slip onto the empty bar stool beside the lumberjack mountain man who looks like he tried to squeeze himself into a suit two sizes too small. He’s intimidatingly broad and thick, with long dark hair that’s been pulled up into a haphazard man bun thing. His beard is a hipster’s wet dream. His scowl, however, makes him about as approachable as a rabid porcupine. And yet, here I am, sidling up next to him.

He glances at me, eyes bleary and not really tracking. He quickly focuses on his half-empty glass again. Based on the slump of his shoulders and the uncoordinated way he picks up his glass and tips it toward his mouth, I’m guessing he’s pretty hammered. I order a sparkling water with a dash of cranberry juice and a lime.

What I could really use is a cup of lavender-mint tea and my bed, but instead, I’m sitting next to a drunk man in his thirties. My life is extra glamorous, obviously. And no, I’m not an escort, but at the moment I feel like my morals are on the same kind of slippery slope.

“Rough day?” I ask, nodding to the bottle that’s missing more than half its contents. It was full when he sat down at the bar an hour ago. Yes, I’ve been watching him the entire time, waiting for an opportunity to make my move. While he’s been sitting here, he’s turned down two women, one in a dress that could’ve doubled as a disco ball and the other in a top so low-cut, I could almost see her navel.

“You could say that,” he slurs. He props his cheek on his fist, eyes almost slits. I can still make out the vibrant blue hue despite them being nearly closed. They move over me, assessing. I’m wearing a conservative black dress with a high neckline and a hem that falls below my knees. Definitely not nearly as provocative as Disco Ball or Navel Lady.

“That solving your problems?” I give him a wry grin and tip my chin in the direction of his bottle of Johnnie.

His gaze swings slowly to the bottle. It gives me a chance to really look at him. Or what I can see of his face under his beard, anyway.

“Nah, but it helps quiet down all the noise up here.” He taps his temple and blurts, “My dad died.”

I put a hand on his forearm. It feels awkward, and creepy on my part since its half-genuine, half-contrived comfort. “I’m so sorry.”

He glances at my hand, which I quickly remove, and refocuses on his drink. “I should be sorry too, but I think he was mostly an asshole, so the world might be better off without him.” He attempts to fill his glass again, but his aim is off, and he pours it on the bar instead. I rush to lift my purse and grab a handful of napkins to mop up the mess.

“I’m drunk,” he mumbles.

“Well, I’m thinking that might’ve been the plan, considering the way you’re sucking that bottle back. I’m actually surprised you didn’t ask for a straw in the first place. Might be a good idea to throw a spacer [CD3] in there if you want tomorrow morning to suck less.” I push my drink toward him, hoping he doesn’t send me packing like he did the other women who approached him earlier.

He narrows his eyes at my glass, suspicious, maybe. “What is that?”

“Cranberry and soda.”

“No booze?”

“No booze. Go ahead. You’ll thank me in the morning.”

He picks up the glass and pauses when it’s an inch from his mouth. His eyes crinkle, telling me he’s smiling under that beard. “Does that mean Imma wake up with you beside me?”

I cock a brow. “Are you propositioning me?”

“Shit, sorry.” He chugs the contents of my glass. “I was joking. Besides, I’m so wasted, I can barely remember my name. Pretty sure I’d be useless in bed tonight. I should stop talkin’.” He scrubs a hand over his face and then motions to me. “I wouldn’t proposition you.”

I’m not sure how to respond. I go with semi-affronted, since it seems like somewhat of an insult. “Good to know.”

“Dammit. I mean, I think you might be hot. You look hot. I mean attractive. I think you’re pretty.” He tips his head to the side and blinks a few times. “You have nice eyes, all four of them are lovely.”

This time I laugh—for real—and point to the bottle. “I think you might want to tell your date you’re done for the night.”

He blows out a breath and nods. “You might be right.” He makes an attempt to stand, but as soon as his feet hit the floor, he stumbles into me and grabs my shoulders to steady himself. “Whoa. Sorry. Yup, I’m definitely drunk.” His face is inches from mine, breath smelling strongly of alcohol. Beyond that, I get a whiff of fresh soap and a hint of aftershave. He lets go of my shoulders and takes an unsteady step back. “I don’t usually do this.” He motions sloppily to the bottle. “Mostly I’m a three drink max guy.”

“I think losing your father makes this condonable.” I slide off my stool. Despite being tall for a woman, and wearing heels, he still manages to be close to a head taller than me.

“Yeah, maybe, but I still think I might regret it tomorrow.” He’s incredibly unsteady, swaying while standing in place. I take the opportunity for what it is and thread my arm through his, leading him away from the bar. “Come on, let’s get you to the elevator before you pass out right here.”

He nods, then wobbles a bit, like moving his head has set him off balance. “That’s probably a good idea.”

He leans into me as we weave through the bar and stumbles on the two stairs leading to the foyer. There’s no way I’ll be able to stop him if he goes down, but I drape one of his huge arms over my shoulder anyway, and slip my own around his waist, guiding him in a mostly straight line to the elevators.

“Which floor are you on?” I ask.

“Penthouse.” He drops his arm from my shoulder and flings it out, pointing to the black doors at the end of the hall. “Jesus, I feel like I’m on a boat.”

“It’s probably all the alcohol sloshing around in your brain.” I take his elbow again, helping him stagger the last twenty feet to the dedicated penthouse elevator.

He stares at the keypad for a few seconds, brow pulling into a furrow. “I can’t remember the code. It’s thumbprint activated though too.” He stumbles forward and presses his forehead against the wall, then tries to line up his thumb with the sensor, but his aim is horrendous and he keeps missing.

I settle a hand on his very firm forearm. This man is built like a tank. Or a superhero. For a moment, I reconsider what I’m about to do, but he seems pretty harmless and ridiculously hammered, so he shouldn’t pose a threat. I’m also trained in self-defense, which would fall under the by any means necessary umbrella. “Can I help?”
