Synopsis

Eight months ago, John Lawson lost his wife and best friend in a tragic accident on his family’s ranch. In the time since, he’s devoted himself to two things—taking care of his two newly motherless sons and proving that Lily’s accident was no accident. Now, he finally has hard evidence that his wife was murdered and he won’t rest until he has the killer’s blood on his hands. He doesn’t have time for anything but vengeance, especially not a crazy ghost hunter wanting to poke around the old spring on his family’s ranch.

Persephone Styles—Percy to her friends—learned about ghosts the hard way, when she was orphaned by a violent crime at the age of seven. Ever since, she’s seen spirits and been obsessed with studying souls beyond the grave. She’s in Lonesome Point to document the town’s spectral activity, but finds herself powerfully drawn to widower John Lawson and empathizing with his grieving children. For the first time in years, Percy is as riveted by the living as she’s always been by the dead and longs to be a part of John’s life.

But when one night of passion becomes something more, Percy realizes John is as haunted as she is and that the man she’s coming to love is walking a dangerous road that may end with him becoming a murderer’s next victim.

Kara's Review

The Lonesome Point, TX series is one of my favorites. Jessie Evans knows how to write a sexy cowboy! Her writing gets better with every book and Ropes and Revenge has the most heart of the series, and the most suspense. John lost his wife, Lily, seven months ago in a tragic accident. Well, John doesn’t think it was an accident and he’s been trying to prove it. Persephone is a psychic and she comes to Lonesome Point, a well-known haunted place, to help restless spirits cross over to the other side. When John meets her he’s mad that she’s on his land and he’s rude to her. He’s also attracted to her and that scares him. John gets a chance to apologize to Percy, and something sparks between them. She vows to help him find out who killed Lily. They form a fast friendship and Percy realizes that she wants him. John is dealing with the loss of his wife and finding her killer and now with the guilt of having feelings for Percy. Things heat up between John and Percy while they search for evidence of the killer. John wants to keep her safe and she instantly becomes one of the family. She’s different than any woman he’s ever known. Different than his late wife and he doesn’t know what to do with his feelings. Will John let himself find love again before it’s too late? Will Percy be able to find the killer and help John move forward? Percy is smart and funny and John is sexy and serious. They complement each other perfectly! John learns to let laughter into his life again and Percy realizes that she’s not her past. This is the ultimate second chance at love story. It’s possible to find love twice in a lifetime and even if it’s scary, you have to make the jump!! This was the perfect way to close out the series. There are some surprises in store for other residents of Lonesome Point and I can’t wait to find out what they are!

She tasted like mercy and forgetfulness, and for the first time in forever, John found himself completely lost in a moment.

“Because I don’t want anyone to hear the hungry sounds you make when we’re kissing except me.”

Percy’s breath rushed out. “I make sounds?”

“Sexy little whimpers and moans,” John continued in that rough whisper that threatened to undo her.

“Never,” John said. “I like your naughty side. And your sweet side. And the side that bosses me around when I’m being an short-sighted asshole.”

Sandra's Review

I have read the whole Lonesome Point Texas Series and l have loved each and every one of them. They all have a unique story behind the love story. You can read them as standalone including Ropes & Revenge but I do recommend you read Chaps & Chance first to get to know Lily and the background of her death. 
John lost his wife seven months ago and he still doesn’t believe it was an accident. He is convinced she was murdered but can not find any solid proof. He is consumed to find out the truth and to also be there for his two young sons. John’s family is worried about him since he is not acting himself but also understand he has to grieve for the love of his life. They just wish he would live and have hope that happiness will come around again…He didn’t believe it until he laid eyes of Persephone. 
Persephone “Percy” is a ghost whisperer and travels the world to help ghosts move on to the other side of the veil. She connects with them and brings them peace before they leave this side. She is now in Lonesome Point to spend some time on Lawson Ranch and the Old Ghost Town. She thought she would only be there for one week but when she meets John Lawson things change. She has a feeling that there is a reason why she is there and it is to help John and maybe even herself. 
John and Percy want to find out who murdered Lily and now that Percy has found proof, it gets the mystery going in the right direction. But John doesn’t want Percy to be the next victim if they get too close to the truth. He cares about her too much. He didn’t think he would ever care for someone after losing Lily but then again he didn’t think he would met someone like Percy. She is different. She is there to help a family that she didn’t even know when she got to town and won’t quit until the mystery is solved and ghosts are at peace. 
I loved John and Percy’s story! I love a good mystery and throw in love and I am done for. Percy is kick ass and love that she is different in the best ways. She also wants to live with the living and not just ghosts and her past. And then there is John, he is sexy, sweet and cares so much for his family. He is so confused. About Lily and Percy and what to do next. 
So many questions in this one! Will they find the killer before he strikes again? Will John push Percy away or will he not be able to let her go? Has Percy found her place in the world after traveling and being on her own for so long? 
Overall…thIs novel is full of mystery, love and family. It was great to see the rest of the gang in town and catching up with them. There is also a surprise at the end and I am super excited about it. 
Quotes: 
Life can be cruel, but death isn’t an end. And love is never a mistake.
Maybe she wasn’t simply meant to help John get his life back on track. Maybe he was going to teach her a thing or two, as well.
“Give me something real to remember. Make me feel alive. Even if it’s only for a night.”

Excerpt

“I’m not good with people,” Persephone said, holding his gaze for a long beat before she continued. “I don’t know what to say to help them feel better when they’re hurting, but sometimes I can help them by helping the people they loved. I know you don’t believe in ghosts, but I do and I care about them and I want to help them find peace. That’s all. I believe everyone deserves peace, don’t you?”

“I believe people don’t get what they deserve,” John said, his voice rough. “Now leave. Please.”

She had to leave before the earnest look on her beautiful face or the empathy shining in her eyes broke him and he started spilling his guts to a total stranger. This woman didn’t deserve to know that his wife was dead or that he still mourned her like it had happened yesterday, not seven months ago. She didn’t deserve to know that a weak, pathetic part of him almost wanted to believe in ghosts, just so he might have some hope of communicating with Lily, of being able to tell her how much he loved her one more time.

But that’s what people like this woman counted on.

“John, please,” Persephone whispered in her feather soft voice. “Let me help if I can.”

His stomach went sour. Persephone probably already knew that Lily had died last spring. She would have done her research before coming here to prey on his grief the way charlatans like her had preyed on the suffering for centuries. If he gave her another ten minutes, he had little doubt she would be offering to help him contact Lily on the other side.

For a fee, of course. A fee he was sure dozens of sad fools had paid her through the years, but he wasn’t going to be one of them.

“Get off my land,” he repeated in a firmer voice. “I have nothing to say to you and I don’t want, or need, your kind of help.”

Her thin shoulders slumped and a defeated expression tightened her delicate features. “All right. Well, I… I guess I should know better by now,” she mumbled as she turned to walk toward the four-wheeler.

“Know better than to try to scam people?”

She slid one leg over the four-wheeler before turning to face him, giving him a moment to register how out of place this elegant person looked on the dusty red machine before she spoke. “I should know better than to reach out to people like you, but I can’t help myself. I keep hoping…” She shook her head wistfully. “But I suppose I’ll grow out of that, sooner or later.”

She reached for the ignition. “Good luck, John. I hope things get better for you soon.”

John crossed his arms and watched her go, determined to keep his expression impassive. He didn’t want her to know how shitty the seemingly genuine concern in her voice made him feel. He didn’t want to think about being part of the reason someone stopped hoping to forge connections with people different than themselves.

Lily had been totally different than the girls he’d dated before her. Until he’d met his freckle-faced, sass-talking, no-bullshit wife, he’d dated women who took far better care of their outsides than their insides. He’d been a sucker for a pretty face and a nice rack and hadn’t looked too far beneath the surface.

And then he’d met Lily and learned what a difference a heart made. She had taught him how to love, pushed him out of his emotional comfort zone, and refused to settle for less than everything he had to give. He’d fought her at first—determined to hold her at the same distance he’d held other girls—but with a mixture of stubbornness, humor, and kisses that took his breath away, she’d worn him down until he was putty in her hands.

On the day they were married, he’d been certain he would never love anyone more than he loved her that afternoon. But their love had grown deeper and stronger with every passing year. By the time they celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary, John had felt like she was a part of him, so deeply ingrained in his heart and dear to his soul nothing could tear them apart.

But death had ripped her away and taken the best parts of him along with her.

“Jesus, Lily.” John bowed his head, his breath rushing out with a defeated sound. “See what an asshole I am without you?”

He waited, a pathetic part of him hoping he might hear her voice in his head again, the way he had Halloween night. But there was nothing but the sound of some critter digging in the ground on the far side of the stream, the gentle burble of water over stones from farther up the mountain, and Darcy snuffling as she sniffed the ground where Persephone Styles had stood a few moments before.

And as a special treat Lauren has released a FREE prequel novella, ONE NIGHT WITH HER!!

 

Nights With Him

Amazon **iBooks ** Kobo

B&N

 

Lauren Blakely is well known for writing sexy, heartfelt and humorous contemporary romance as well as deeply emotional new adult stories –one commonality in all her books is the scorching hot sexy times. And these new books are absolutely no different! Jack Sullivan and Michelle Milo’s story is told in 2 books – the free prequel novella ONE NIGHT WITH HER and the novel NIGHTS WITH HIM. However, the prequel novella is included in the copy of NIGHTS WITH HIM to make it easier for the reader.

Message from Lauren:

The Seductive Nights erotic romance series continues with a new installment starring a new couple! While the first four books in the series followed Julia and Clay, the next two will be about Michelle and Jack, and can be read without having read the earlier books. (Though, why wouldn’t you want to read about Clay and Julia?!)

I can’t wait to introduce readers to Jack Sullivan. He’s sexy, broody, witty, smart, and a little bit damaged and he’s also my favorite kind of hero – the kind who wears a suit! Jack Sullivan is a sex toy mogul and is the CEO of a high-end line of pleasure products – he’ll bring all that experience to the bedroom as he sweeps Michelle Milo off her feet – expect many steamy encounters between these two! Michelle needs some good loving after all – readers know her already as Clay’s friend from Night After Night who loved him unrequitedly from afar. Now it’s finally her turn in the romance arena, and Jack will make sure she gets it good!!

Kara's Review

Lauren Blakely can’t write a bad book. She can’t even write an ok book. She writes awesome books! She’s one of my favorite authors and I have read everything she’s written, some more than once. Jack quickly jumped to the #2 spot on my Blakely Boy list and that isn’t an easy task. Something about his easy style, intelligence, dirty mouth and sexiness is almost too much for me to handle. Almost.  Jack Sullivan, sells sex toys. Michelle Milo is a psychologist who’s perfectly buttoned up on the outside and all kinds of dirty on the inside! They spent one amazing night together and they both planned to repeat that as soon as possible until he ends up being her patient. They are not going to let that happen. Jack has plans for her and they don’t include her poking around in his head. Jack proposes that Michelle spends 30 nights with him. He’s using her to forget about his haunted past and she’s using him to forget about an unrequited love. The perfect solution. This book has some of the best sex scenes I’ve ever read. Ever. It also has a few of the best sweet, loving scenes. And, of course we get to see old friends from the series and Lauren’s other books! I love that part!
Can these 2 broken souls come together and be whole? Will they be able to just walk away from each other after the 30 nights?

“You taste so fucking good,” he said.
“What do I taste like?” she asked, because no one had ever talked to her this way.
“Like sex,” he murmured. “You taste like hot sex.”

“Let me have more of you, ” he continued. “Let me have you for a month. Give me your body. I’ll give you mine.”
“I don’t know.”
“Let me give you a taste of what I can do to you. If I don’t give you the best orgasm of your life within the next hour, I won’t ask again.”
“Check, please.”

M: I have unfinished business with your fabulous fucking cock.
J: Now you’ve done it again. Why do you torture me like this?

“You like the way I look with you in my mouth?”
“I love all the different looks you have. I love the way you look naked. I love the way you look with your legs spread. I love how you look in this seductive outfit. I love how you look when you come.”

 Sandra's Review

I met Jack a few weeks before reading Nights With Him in the prequel One Night With Her and I could not wait for more because they are one hot couple! This takes place the moment the prequel ended….

Jack and Michelle had one amazing night of pleasure and planned on even more but what they didn’t expect was to meet in her office the next morning. He was there for his first appointment with a shrink to help him move on from his past. Michelle is a professional and also a woman with needs so she very well could not treat him but she could help him in other ways. She was also trying to move forward from her past, heartbroken from loving a man for a decade that she never told until it was too late. It would not have worked anyway….he did not feel the same.

They both knew they were not ready to be in a relationship, Jack needed to figure out if he was able to live and Michelle needed to mend her broken heart and protect it. But that did not mean they could not enjoy each-other and when Jack gave Michelle a proposal to have 30 days of pleasure and then move on, she agreed. He brought out after-hours Michelle and she loved it, craved it even so she could not say No.

During the 30 day agreement Jack and Michelle heat up and it gets better daily. He possesses her body without having to tie her down to the bed but with his touch and promises of pleasure. And what he gets in return is her, the hellcat after hours Michelle and she is also someone that wants just Jack. The Jack that not everybody sees. Can they keep their relationship to a sex-only one? Will they just walk away after 30 days? Can Jack Love and can Michelle get over Clay and open her heart again?

I love Jack and Michelle. He is a dirty talking sexy businessman that is keen to giving pleasure. She is a independent, smart, sexy and one sharp dressing woman with a blunt mouth.

Of course in Lauren Blakely fashion there are twists and more to the story then just sex and emotion. In this one she has added business and politics. And you will also catch up with past characters which is always fun. I can’t wait to see what happens next in the Seductive Night Series.

Quotes:

No one had sung her praises like this man, and she was greedy. He was like dessert without the calories. He was the cake and chocolate and everything delicious in the universe.

She swatted him playfully. “You are a cocky bastard. Trying to use all those orgasms against me.”
“I would never use an orgasm against you. I only use orgasms for good. In fact, I think more orgasms could bring about world peace.”
“The more you come, the less you fight.”

M: I hope it’s not work that involves other people.
J: Why not?
M: Because I wouldn’t want them to see what I’m about to do to you.

Deputy United States Marshal Mitch Knox apprehends fugitives for a living. His calm, cool, collected attitude and devastatingly handsome good looks earn him a well-deserved bad boy reputation, both in the field and out. While away on an assignment, he blows off some steam at a notorious Dallas nightclub. Solving the case that has plagued him for months takes a sudden backseat to finding out all there is to know about the gorgeous, shy blond sitting alone at the bar.
Texas State Trooper Cody Turner is moving up the ranks, well on his way to his dream of being a Texas Ranger. While on a two-week mandatory vacation, he plans to relax and help out on his family’s farm. Mitch is the last distraction Cody needs, but the tatted up temptation that walks into the bar and steals his baseball cap is too hard to ignore.
As Mitch’s case gains nationwide attention, how will he convince the sexy state trooper that giving him a chance won’t jeopardize his life’s plan…especially when the evil he’s tracking brings the hate directly to his doorstep, threatening more than just their careers.

I love Kindle Alexander! She is one of my go to authors. She writes it, I read it. Her writing is brilliant. I have read all of her books and they are all wonderful. Full Disclosure may be the most anticipated one for me. I fell in love with Mitch in Double Full. There was just something about his bad boy attitude and smoldering good lucks that drew me to him. This book has all of my favorite attributes: suspense, humor, sex, anticipation, friendship, pain, loss and love. Mitch is still working on the cases from Double Full, trying to apprehend the person committing the acts of violence against gay men. Mitch isn’t looking for a relationship or love, he just wants a fun night out dancing. Then he sees Cody. The scene where they meet in the bar is one of my favorite meet-cute scenes ever. Ever. Mitch sees Cody and he wants him. Then with in minutes of just watching Cody he more than just wants him physically. Mitch isn’t used to having these feelings so fast or even at all. Cody is shy and unsure. Mitch is confident and arrogant. The perfect combination! Not to mention how incredibly sexy they are. Tall, built, strong. Mitch covered in tattoos, Cody the hot cowboy. Mitch pushes and Cody pulls away. Mitch is used to getting what he wants and he’s amazing at verbalizing everything that he’s thinking. Cody isn’t sure what he wants at first but he knows he’s attracted to Mitch. He’s not in the closet but his new job is important to him and he doesn’t want any distractions or trouble. The case that Mitch is working on takes a turn and becomes personal. He has to put all of his effort into solving it and keeping people safe. He manages to convince Cody to speak to him and see him and we get to watch these 2 men learn to live, love and trust. Together they are hilarious and hot! I laughed and cried, and I claim Mitch as my own! Can these two men make it work with so many obstacles and miles separating them. Do they think the fight will be worth it? Can they keep each other safe in the midst of the violence or will the distraction be their downfall? Do not miss this wonderful story. Kindle, I love you!The guy sat in the darkened corner of the bar, with a baseball cap pulled down low on his head, and for some reason, the way he wore the hat caught Mitch’s attention. “They’re wranglers, and I like your dimples. I haven’t been dancing in a long time, thanks for not taking no for an answer.”
“Good, I like for hot twenty-six-year-olds to dance with me, and just so you know, I’m used to getting what I want.”“Jace, make him take it off and ask him about the sixteen to twenty pieces of bacon he ate,” Mitch said.
“Sixteen pieces of bacon?” Jace asked.
“You suck, man. I wasn’t even wearing your stupid hat,” Colt hollered.Damn, the man was so freaking fine, with all that bulked up, tattooed chest showing. A detailed cross decorating his left pectoral muscle and the words ‘Only God Can Judge Me’ inked in black scroll across his collarbone stood out like a beacon against his olive skin. The man’s dimples showed, big and tempting. All Cody would this about was pressing his lips to one of them.“You’re telling me you don’t want me, but you’re eye-fucking me all at the same time. That’s hot as hell. You’re fucking gorgeous, Cody. Let me see you, let me watch you.”

Double Full was my very first M/M book. I wasn’t sure if it was a genre that I would enjoy but decided if I was going to have a blog, I read everything to an extent. No joke…I highlighted the very first paragraph in Double Full and I was hooked. You met Mitch in Double Full for a small amount of time but that is all you need to want to know more about this sexy Man with a great sense of humor.

Mitch is a Deputy Marshal and has been working a case for the last several months. It is personal to him and he will do everything he can including using his own money to find out who is behind the murders of high and even low profile gay men across the country. He does not have time for anything else so when he is called to go to Texas on another case he is not happy but he does get to see some old friends and have a fun night out. Mitch has a swagger to him and tonight he wants to find a man to help relieve some stress. When he spots a man across the bar sitting alone and hiding behind a baseball cap, he wants him in the worst way….

Cody is a Texas State Trooper that has just been promoted and is out celebrating by himself when he notices a man coming into the bar that makes everyone look. He is sexy, tattooed and commands attention. Cody just sits back and watches him dance, he has never seen somebody so handsome in his life but feels he is totally out of his league so he just watches from afar. When this hunk of a man approaches him he is dumbfounded, there are no words and there really doesn’t need to be.

Mitch and Cody have a very intense connection from the start and even though Cody is not usually shy, he is around Mitch until that chemistry is tested. When Mitch is called and has to leave Cody just when things where getting hot, he promises to find him again. They both can not stop thinking about each-other even though they both know they can’t afford distraction right now. But when you can’t concentrate on work because of the wondering, something’s got to give and when they figure out how….he is fucking sexy as hell. What is more amazing is the way they are together even thousands of miles apart but is that enough?

Mitch is so frustrated with his case and you are right along with him. I love a great mystery so I felt I was on the case with him. But when things get even more personal he is even more determined. Can he and Cody maintain a relationship during such a big case? Can Cody concentrate on his new job and think about Mitch? Can Mitch actually be in a relationship?

I was very surprised about this book in many ways. I knew Mitch was a bad ass with humor but he really is a smart-ass in the best way! I was laughing out loud. I love Mitch…he is very blunt, lickable hot and tends to hold things in but not when it comes to Cody. I also fell for Cody since he is shy but not when he gets to the nitty-gritty. They also both need someone that understands that their jobs are time consuming and very important to them.

I love Kindle’s writing and her characters to come to life. Her books are sexy, full of suspense and emotional. I can not wait to see what she has in store next!

P.S. Mitch has the best t-shirts.

Quotes:

“Keep your fucking mouth shut,” Cocky Smith cautioned. “Or what?” Mitch chest bumped him back. If need be, he could take this guy, no problem. The poor Smith kid at the door tried his best to separate the two. It wasn’t working. “Or I’ll shut it for you.” “Like to see you try fake-n-bake.”

“Besides, I’m hoping that after tonight I can look at the case with a clear head. You’ve been on my mind too much lately. I can’t think straight.”

“So, I’ve got the spot?”

“Get in the car. I know what you’re doing. You have to be on duty tonight. Phone fuck him later, Mitch. Jobs before hos.” And Kreed honked the horn again.

Deleted Scene
***Spoiler***

Cody stepped through the front door of his apartment and smiled at the darkened silence that greeted him. He tossed his truck keys on the counter and sat his overnight bag down on the hardwood floor. Damn it felt good to be home. After almost two full weeks at his parents house, this place felt like heaven

                “I need to get you a key,” Cody flipped the switch, flooding the small space with light. Mitch squeezed through the door a few steps behind him.

                “You were supposed to wait for me,” Mitch commented, looking around his apartment.

                “It’s fine. No one knows we were coming here,” Cody said, following Mitch to the bedroom. “I love the silence. I really missed this place.”

                “Cody, you promised to follow the rules, now I gotta tell your pop you didn’t do what you said,” Mitch said as he opened the closet door and looked inside. Cody ignored him completely; he knew exactly what Mitch was doing. The comment made him grin. He shook his head and walked across the room and placed the lube and condoms on the top of the dresser, before rummaging through the hidden compartment of his dresser drawer.

                “Here,” Cody said, rising back to his full height. He winked when he noticed Mitch looking over at him in the mirror. Taking a step forward he held out his hand.

                “What’s that?” Mitch questioned, walking toward him.

                “A key to my place. Aren’t you moving in?” Cody asked.

                “If you want me too.” Mitch abandoned the search, his eyes now trained on Cody’s. “You don’t think it’s a little fast?”

                “I thought you wanted this.” Cody gripped the key tightly in his fist. His face must have shown a million different expressions, but Mitch’s remained the same. In fact he looked confused and intense; he wasn’t sure how to read him. Cody started to lower his hand, but Mitch stopped him.

                “I do, more than anything. But I thought you wanted more time,” Mitch replied, forcibly opening his palm to take the key out. Cody stayed quiet and Mitch tucked the key inside his jeans before drawing Cody closer. “I want to be here with you. There’s no place else I’d rather be, I just don’t want to push you into something if you aren’t ready for. You’ve been through too much.”

                “I’m ready. I just didn’t want to push you eit…” Cody started, but Mitch silenced him.

                “Thank you for the key,” Mitch said and lowered his mouth to Cody’s.

               “You’re welcome,” Cody responded against Mitch’s lips.

                “Now that it’s official and I’ve got you alone, there’s something I’ve wanted to do since we left your parents’ house.” Mitch traced his bottom lip with his tongue then nipped and licked into his mouth. Cody couldn’t help but melt into Mitch’s arms. This was right where he wanted to be, right here in his and Mitch’s loft, doing exactly this. The kiss turned heated quickly, just what he needed to help him forget the past couple of weeks. They ate at each other’s mouths, tongues tangling and twisting, searching and probing. Mitch helped rid him of his clothes and suddenly dropped to his knees on the bedroom rug. Damn there wasn’t a more enticing sight than Mitch on his knees in front of him.

The heat in Cody’s body grew as Mitch’s gaze caught his, his golden brown eyes heavily hooded with lust. Mitch’s rough fingers circled his cock and stroked him from root to tip, sending pleasure coursing through his balls.

“Marshal,” he gasped as Mitch’s warm wet mouth surrounded him. His knees locked and he pushed his groin forward losing himself in the tight hot cavern of Mitch’s mouth. He closed his eyes and drifted on the euphoria of the moment. He rocked his hips into that hard suction, Mitch’s tongue curling and dipping into his slit.

“Fuck, yeah, feels so good.” Cody thrust in and out of that moist heat, gripping Mitch’s hair to hold him in place as he pushed his cock deeper down Mitch’s throat. Damn, the way Mitch reacted to him had his body charging and his balls churning.

If Mitch only knew what he did to him, how much he turned him on, had always turned him on. Mitch was his other half, the person he wanted to spend the rest of his days with. Today they were starting their life together and he couldn’t think of a better way to commence the event. He widened his stance when his lover began to play with his heavy sac. Mitch rolled and teased his balls in the palm of his hand, then slowly drew those clever fingers over his perineum applying light pressure, driving him mad.  

Cody froze in place when eager fingers ghosted over his most intimate spot, he almost lost his load just imagining them pressing into him. He damn sure didn’t want this to be over just as soon as it started, he wanted to savor every torturous and sexually deviant thing Mitch wanted to do to him.

                “Babe, I’m already so close it’s been too long, “Cody panted

                Mitch drew back and growled against his cockhead, “go ahead and let go, cowboy, I’ve been craving this time with you for far too long to stop now. Besides, we have all night to do whatever we want to each other, over and over again. Remember? I’m moving in.” A satisfied smirk curled the corners of Mitch’s lips before he spit on his fingers and brought them around to Cody’s ass, then swallowed his cock to the base in one sexy gulp.

Shit…Mother Fucker! He fucking Loved Mitch’s mouth on him and the feel of those warm rough fingers pushing at his entrance. His ass clenched at the invasion, but it was exactly what he wanted right now, raw and rough. Mitch pushed the tip of his finger into him over and over, sinking deeper each time, until he had three fingers buried in his ass.

Mitch used his fingers to fuck him, pushing and prodding on his prostate with every twist of his wrist. They settled into a delicious rhythm and fuck it felt amazing. Every pull from Mitch’s mouth drove him closer to his orgasm and he let it, he didn’t fight against the need rising in him. The familiar heat began to smolder in his spine, building more and more pressure with each thrust. Mitch urged him on, his thick fingers still working his prostate with purpose. He drove his hips wildly against Mitch’s face, his cock hitting the back of Mitch’s amazing throat with every unsteady thrust. Cody let go, completely caught up and carried away by the carnal desire filling his body.

“Feels so good…gonna come.” The heat in his spine flamed out of control surging through his body with a force that boiled through his veins. He tried to pull out of Mitch’s mouth but the man held his hips, keeping him from pulling and devoured him to the root. Mitch’s throat constricted around him, completely robbing him of his senses. It was all too much and he lost himself to the mind numbing gratification as his cock erupted deep in Mitch’s throat.

Mitch swallowed around his cock. The intensity of the moment drew out his pleasure longer than normal or maybe it was because his lover kept pressure on his prostate as he finished emptying his essence down Mitch’s throat. Mitch withdrew his fingers and placed his hands on Cody’s hips to keep him steady. Mitch stared up at him with those golden brown eyes while licking his dick like an ice cream cone, cleaning the come off his shaft before standing and taking Cody’s mouth with his. Cody unbuttoned Mitch’s shirt and shoved it down his shoulders, then reached for the buttons on Mitch’s jeans.

                “That was beyond amazing, Marshal Knox. I think I need to return the favor. It’s still early, let’s get you out of these clothes so we can properly christen every room in this apartment before midnight.”

Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!
I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindle.
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.

SaddlesSinTeaser

Synopsis

Even sweet cowboys have a sinful side…

Robert Lawson—Bubba to his friends—is six feet, four inches of tall, dark, and handsome cowboy, with a panty-melting voice and a face made to launch a country music career. But when his family’s ranch hands go down with the flu, Robert cancels his high-profile auditions in Austin, and returns home to Lonesome Point to help out. Fortune and fame are all well and good, but family and friends come first. Besides, he’s ready to enjoy some off-the-clock time with his manager, a woman who has him dying to show her what a good man can do to a woman when he’s given permission to be bad.

 

Marisol Medina has been looking for her golden ticket since she became a country music manager. A scandal with one of her clients nearly destroyed her, but now she’s close to launching an artist who will make her career. Robert Lawson has it all—talent, charisma, and a naughty side that flicks all of Marisol’s kinkier switches. But Robert is off limits. She refuses to mix business and pleasure, even if it will be hell resisting temptation while spending a week at the Lawson family ranch, doing her best to convince Robert to ditch the saddle and embrace his future as a star.

But as Marisol and Robert grow closer and the passion between them ignites, Marisol must decide if fear is stronger than love, or if a chance at forever is worth breaking all her rules.

Kara's Review

I love Jessie Evans and her books. She’s one of the best, cleanest, witty writers I’ve ever read. She makes you feel like you are there sharing their lives with them. The characters and towns come alive in her books. I love the Lonesome Point Series. Bubba intrigued me in the first book and I’m so glad that he has his own! Bubba is a sweet, sexy cowboy who can sing. What’s better than that? Nothing! Add in his dirty mouth and penchant for all things kink and you have a winner! His manager, Marisol is a bit of a conundrum with her sexy looks and icy walls. One minute she’s melting looking at Bubba and the next she’s running off. She’s the only one who calls him Robert and he loves that about her. He wants to conquer her. To own her. But she’s skittish. He has a way with words that made me swoon; sharp, sweet and dirty. The perfect combination. Will Marisol be able to let go of her past and open up to Bubba? Can Bubba get past her secrets and convince her that he’s the one? Do not miss this one!!

There was something about him, something more than the handsome features, the drool-worthy body, or the smoke and velvet voice smoother than twenty-year-old-scotch.

But Marisol knew he tasted even better than he smelled, and was the kind of man who wasn’t afraid to spank a girl during a first kiss.

“Yes, there’s a chance things might end badly, but I know from experience that fear doesn’t keep you safe. All fear does is keep you lonely, and shout so loud you can’t hear your heart when it whispers.”

“And I bet Jesus had a great sense of humor. They just left the funny stuff out of the Bible to save space.”

I’m not going anywhere. I’m yours. And you’re mine. No returns, no exchanges.”

Sandra's Review

I love Jessie Evans’ Books and she gets them out like crazy! I met Robert “Bubba” in Leather And Lace as Mia’s best friend and he was there for her and was a great man so happy that we get to find out more about him.

Robert aka Bubba has been busy with getting his country music out there with small gigs and auditions hoping to get a break. He has a Manager that knows his worth and is behind him all the way and her name is Marisol. Ever since they met Robert felt that she was the perfect fit for his career and also in other aspects in his life….there was a spark that he could not deny. He had no idea what she felt towards him other than her talent and even when she did say anything about his looks, he wasn’t sure if it was for business or how she really felt. When one night he wanted to test his theory, he got his answer but she pulled away, she needed to keep this professional for both of them.

Marisol doesn’t want Robert to know that she is turned on in so many ways when he is around her. She needs to keep it professional and show his talent to the world. She also doesn’t want to get too close….she has secrets that she feels can make him run and she needs him just as much as he needs her. When Robert has to go back home to help his family, she decides to go with him so they can work while he is out there but she also knows being so close to him for a week can break her down. They also have to keep their working relationship away from the family….

Robert may be a sweet ole boy but he has the perfect amount of alpha in him when he needs to it come out. He wants Marisol and not just her body but also her mind and soul. He sees that she is hurt and wants to be that friend to get her to open up. He wants her and when she starts to let her walls down…..he wants her even more. Marisol wants the fairytale but she is not sure if Robert will still want her if her secret comes out, she doesn’t believe she is worthy of his love. But she does know that she feels safe around him and that means so much to her.

There are so many questions to be answered but here are a few. Will Robert make it as a country singer? Can they move past the issues that haunt Marisol? Will his family accept his choices?

I loved Robert and Marisol! They make one amazing team. I also enjoyed seeing what the rest of the gang were up to and excited about the next book. I can’t wait to meet Mia’s brother, Pike.

Quotes:

“I will flirt with club managers, and be your arm candy t events until you find a cute little thing to take home to your mama, but that’s here it ends. As long as you are my client, it’s business between us.”

“I don’t give a shit about good ideas. I want to work with you, and I want to be your friend, but I also want to make you come.”

He couldn’t help worrying that maybe love wasn’t always enough, and that some secrets had the power to destroy the best things in the world, no matter how determined a man might be to stop them.

Excerpt

She moaned as he spread his fingers across the soft flesh of her belly. Shivering under his touch, her back bowed and her hips jutted out.                                                           

It was an invitation, one he was damn sure he had no choice but to RSVP to. He ran his fingertips along her skin, tracing her belly button, her hips, the edge of the waistband of her shorts. He dipped his head to her neck and licked a path up her neck, her skin so hot. “I want you so much. More than I should. More than I’m supposed to. But I just don’t care because right now I want to hear the sweet, sexy sounds you make when I touch you,” he said, his voice gravelly.                                                           

“I can’t stop, either. So don’t you dare,” she said. She grappled at his shirt, her hands frantic as she pulled and tugged at his clothes, as if she couldn’t get him near enough. He felt her fingers grasping at his shorts, jerking him even closer.                                                           

He groaned as he pressed against her, his cock hard and heavy, and he wished he had a condom with him, so he could strip off her clothes, pull down his shorts, and thrust into her. He slid his hand between her legs, feeling the heat of her desire through her shorts. She gasped the second he made contact; she was so ready to have him inside her.                                                           

She moaned again, and it started as a long, low sigh that became his name. “Becker.”                                                           

“Do you have any idea how much I want to be inside you?”                                                           

She nodded against him. “As much as I want you there,” she answered quickly, her voice ragged.                                                          

“I want to bury myself inside you right now. I want to feel you gripping me,” he whispered huskily against her neck.                                                           

“And then?” she asked, rocking against his hand, greedily seeking out his fingers even through the layers between them.                                                           

“You’ll give yourself to me, spread your legs wide open, take me all the way in.”                                                           

“I will,” she said, as she shuddered in his arms. He wrapped a hand around her waist, keeping her steady.                                                           

“Then I’ll kiss you while I fuck you,” he whispered into her ear.                                                           

She gasped, and wriggled her body closer to his. “I want that. All of it. I want fucking and kissing,” she said, her breathing turning more erratic.                                                           

“I’ll fuck you like I kiss you, and kiss you like I fuck you. With nothing held back,” he said, his tongue darting against the salty skin of her neck as she trembled against him.                                                           

“Do that to me now,” she said, her breathing turning erratic, her sounds reminding him how close they were flirting with danger.                                                           

Too close.

Like the moment before a back draft.

Sandra's Review

Melt for Him is another scorching hot read by Lauren Blakely. God, I love her books! I get excited every time I hear there is a new one in the works.

Becker is the owner of The Panting Dog, a local bar in Hidden Oaks, a town in the Wine county in Northern California. As he watched a mystery woman walk into the bar he was immediately intrigued. She was beautiful, confident and the also a stranger and that was perfect for Becker. So when she approaches him in the Alley way of his bar, he is even more intrigued by her. He finds out that Megan is just coming through town and on her way up to Portland. After some flirting on both of their sides they make it over to Becker’s house for one amazingly hot night. They are both in a place where they don’t want attachment but they do want a repeat while she is still in town and that is the plan….

Meagan has just left her ex-boyfriend in Los Angeles and she is on her way to Portland to start over. Before doing so she is staying in her hometown of Hidden Oaks to visit her family and friends also to shoot the Firemen Calendar. She had no idea that on her first night back she would share an amazing night with the hot bar owner that her friend Jaime told her about. He was more than she would have thought, he was fun, flirty and sweet but also an    Extremely great lover and a giving one at that. It was perfect, she needed a stranger and not another attachment.

Megan has sworn off any guy with dangerous job especially firemen. So when her brother Travis introduces her to his boss the Fire Chief, Becker things change for both of them. He should not be with his best friend’s little sister and she will not go there with a fireman. It would just break her later on….

They decide that they can no longer go with the plan of seeing each other again or even act as though something has already happened, it would not be good for either of them. They have to work together on the calendar. The problem is they both can not stop thinking about that night. They have to fight against that pull towards one another….they can’t help the way they feel about repeating it. It’s not just physical, which would make it easier on both of them. They just can’t go there. Can Becker keep his promise to stay away from Megan? Can she stick to her guns about firemen? Even if they did lose the fight….can they keep it casual as planned?

I love Becker and Megan!! Becker is fun, flirty, and sexy as hell. Megan is a badass motorcycle riding artist that I would so be friends with. They make a very beautiful and different type of couple. They both don’t show their real sides to everyone but to one another it’s easy. It is a very hot read with some teasing which I think is awesome. But it also emotional and I enjoyed all the small pieces that made up this amazing story of two strangers that turn into lovers. I laughed, I cried, I swooned, the perfect combo. And I always get excited when I find connections in Lauren’s books…they might be quick but they are there.

Quotes:

“I’ve always thought it was a shame that they’re not terribly domesticated because their masks are so damn cute. So I choose raccoon,” he pronounced.

They ways their bodies responded to each other, it was as if this whole day, whole week, whole year had been leading up to this night, to the possibility of this sort of instant chemistry.

She was someone who didn’t know who he was. Someone who didn’t have the time for more than the here and now. With her, there was no past. There was only the present. That was all he wanted, and all he was good for.

Kara's Review

I start all my Lauren Blakely reviews the same way: I have read all of Lauren’s books and I love all of them and I love her. I’m loving this series of hot firemen, and I think I love Becker more than I loved Smith. Becker is a brooding, sexy, hot, fireman with a fantastic mouth. One night he meets a stranger who claims to be just passing through town and he can’t help but watch her and want to get to know her better. Megan is sassy and witty and Becker is instantly attracted to her body and her mind. They decide to spend the night together and it’s amazing! Becker is so hot and attentive. They plan to see each other again until they find out that they are not actually strangers! Megan is Becker’s best friends sister and she’s off limits. Megan won’t betray her brother’s wishes and she won’t get involved with a firefighter. Their chemistry is off the charts and they try to stay away from each other but it’s not as easy as they thought. Can they break their own rules and give in to their feelings? Will Becker take a chance Megan and get her to see it’s more than just physical between them? Don’t miss this one! As always, Lauren slips in references and characters from her other books. I love that!

He was a wizard with his tongue, a gentleman with his actions, and a swoon-maker with his words.

“Let me,” she said in a breathy voice.
“You think I was going to stop you?”
“I don’t know. Just don’t. Don’t stop me.”
“Don’t you get it? I can’t stop with you, Megan. I can’t”

She wanted him to fuck her and make love to her at the same time – his kind of woman.

“I hope you know I love kissing you as much as I love fucking you.”

 

Message from Lauren:

I want to let you all in on a little secret about me. I love hotfiremen. I stare at hot fireman. I slow down when driving past thefire station to try to get a better look at the men inside. Whichmight explain why I wrote a sexy firefighter series! But all oglingand firemen lust aside, not only are firefighters sexy, they are alsobrave, courageous and active in their communities. As I wrote MELT FORHIM, I learned more about the work that volunteer fire departmentsaround the country do — both in responding to emergencies and inhelping their communities. And because firefighters have given me somuch inspiration, I wanted to be able to give back with this book.
That’s why I will be donating half of all my proceeds from thepreorders and release week sales for MELT FOR HIM to the NVFCFirefighter Support Fund that supports the nation’s volunteer fire andEMS departments. Together, I believe we can all make a difference andhelp support the men and women who serve our local communities andcome through for us when we need them most!

GavinSugarTeaserFINAL

 

Synopsis

He’s utterly alone…

Tortured and existing in a dark spiral of despair, bestselling British author, Gavin Cooke, has come to the Outer Banks of North Carolina to escape the seedy lifestyle he had been living in London and in a desperate attempt to regain his writing focus. He’s twisted, bitter and angry at the world. He’s a loner… needing not a single thing other than his Scotch and a laptop upon which he can bang out his next erotic, dark thriller.

 

She’s running in place and getting nowhere…

Savannah Shepherd’s life is falling apart. Her dream of being a wildlife photographer seems a distant memory and she’s barely able to make ends meet. Driving herself forward with no clear goals apparent, she’s about ready to pack up her bags and head home with her tail between her legs.

 

Two unlikely lovers…

He’s raw, forceful and a dirty talker. She’s a flowers and romance type of girl. Yet within each other, they find a mutual craving that can only be satisfied by giving in to their desires for one another.

Lust turns into something more… something they were not looking for but tentatively accept. Will it be enough to push them past the obstacles of Gavin’s bitter past?

Kara's Review

I start all my Sawyer Bennett reviews the same – I have read all of her books and I love her and them! This is the 3rd book in the Last Call Series. I didn’t think I could love someone more than Brody, but Gavin snuck up on me. He’s, gorgeous, sexy, tortured, broody, witty, British and has a dirty mouth. My favorite kind of hero. Gavin is hiding from his past and he’s rude. mean and new in town. He hires Savannah, a sweet, hard working, innocent girl to clean his house. He’s not prepared for the pull towards her and he refuses to acknowledge that he might care. Instead, he’s rude to her, uses his dirty mouth to try and embarrass her and make her run. He underestimates her innocence and her moxie! Gavin pushes Savannah beyond her boundaries – can you say amazing car scene? Their chemistry is off the charts hot and they start to burrow into each other’s hearts. Gavin might be broody and stoic, but he’s a writer and he has an amazing way with words. He knows how to express himself but Savannah doesn’t know how to believe him. Can they get over their pasts and learn to love again? Or will their worst fears come to the surface? Do not miss this amazing story of loss, pain, lust and love. You won’t be sorry!

 

I’m driving an Italian sports car on a lonely highway with an insanely gorgeous and carnally sinful man with his hand between my legs. There’s no other way for this to go but hard and fast.

 

Desire, not lust.

Because they are two different things.

Lust suggests a carnal need to slake oneself until there is no further need.

Desire suggests a craving…something that is pervasive and without end. Something that pulls at you…warms you from the inside out and fogs your senses entirely.

 

Simply pit…she had become an obsession for me, and I wondered about the lunacy of my thoughts, I really decided that I didn’t give a flying f if I was going crazy. In the short time I’d known her, I had become addicted to her brand of sweet.

TeaserSugarPantiesFINAL

Sandra's Review

Sugar on the Edge is the third novel in the Last Call Series but can be read as a stand alone. I have not read On The Rocks which is the first in the series but did read Make It A Double and that is where I met Savannah…the so-called quiet one.

Gavin Cooke has moved from England to a small town in North Carolina to leave everything behind to work on his next erotic thriller novel. He has worked his way through England with booze, drugs and many women and now he needs to settle down and get to work. It is not not an easy task. He is a tortured, dark and twisted and his only real friend is Macallan, his bottle of scotch. He doesn’t do happy, not even happy woman….he would rather make them feel pain, like the pain he feels daily.

Savannah is the new friend in the group of friends, she is Casey Markham’s roommate and works her tail to the bone. She is a photographer’s assistant, volunteer at The Haven, bartender when needed and also a Housekeeper. When Casey tells her that the man she just sold a house to needs a housekeeper. She has been warned that he is not the nicest man but she needs the job. When she first meets Gavin she was not surprised by his attitude but surprised for other reasons….he is hot, British and sets her on fire. But also an asshole….

Gavin is in awe of Savannah. He believed that is was shy and just did what she was told but she shocks the shit out of him everyday. He doesn’t do happy but he can’t stop thinking about his little housekeeper, he makes excuses to see her whenever he can. And Savannah is good for him…they need each other. They bring things out in one another that was deep down.Their sexual relationship is fucking amazing. They can’t get enough of one another and when they open up emotionally, it’s beautiful. But what is going to happen when the novel is finished? Can he really settle down in North Carolina? Can he move past his tortured past? When things get rough, can they work together?

This was a hard review. I know I say that a lot but I can go on and on about Gavin and Savannah! I can’t wait to see what happens in the next Last Call novel.

Quotes:

I’m betting Gavin Cooke knows how to do that for a woman. Sure, he’s brash, arrogant, and a jerk, but deep within those eyes, you can tell that part of his ego is what makes him a undoubtably fantastic lover. I bet he doesn’t know how to do a poor job of nothing.

Savannah doesn’t know me all that well at all, but she understands that Killing the Tides was borne of a pervasive darkness within me.

“Now, Sweet…stop telling the girls all of our sexy secrets or there will be no ropes for you tonight.”

Book Blitz – Meet Cannon Blackwell from Pretty Instinct, S.E. Hall

August 8, 2014 By

 
 PrettyInstinctTeaserCB
 
 
“If opposites attract, then I am nothing. Because you, you are
everything.”
There’s no easy road traveled to such an intense sentiment, one I never
dreamt I’d feel…
But I also never planned on Cannon Blackwell climbing aboard my tour bus.
 
 
 
Meet Cannon Blackwell
Fall in love with the cast
of Pretty Instinct!
Meet Cannon Blackwell, the beautiful, guitar case toting stranger picked
up off the side of the road when See You Next Tuesday (yes, the band
named C—) needs a new member…sexy, considerate and too insightful
for Lizzie’s own comfort; he works his way into “the family.”
I check my phone for the tenth time. It’s almost 2 am, surely they’re asleep and I can
sneak to my own bed. Sleeping with Conner isn’t as fun as you might
think, unless you think being caged with a wild animal sounds like a party.
As quietly as possible, I slink out of the bed and through his door,
pulling it closed;
halfway there. Sending up a silent prayer I don’t meet any open, awake eyes, I
turn, relieved at the lack of spectators, and scurry to my bed. After
sharing my song tonight, I need some time to pass before I look them
in the eyes—those lyrics, the tremor in my voice as I sang—I’m
not ready for questions or commentary.
“Pssst.”
Of course I didn’t pull off the covert bed switch undetected. This bus—40 x 8 feet—might
as well be a shoebox. I draw back the curtain, squinting my eyes
against the dimness.“Hey,” Cannon greets me
with a whisper and grin from his bed, curtain also pulled open.
Giving him back the smile I can’t contain, I finger wave. Has he been
waiting up for me? Was I secretly hoping he’d still be awake? Do I
want to know either answer or what it says about me?
What
planet am I living on that this is now an issue?
“Here.” He scoots to the edge of his bunk and hands across…an earbud? Eyeing him curiously,
I turn on my side, facing his way, and put it in my ear. “Shhh.”
He puts a finger over his lips then winks and slips the other bud in
his own ear, only breaking eye contact for a split second to tap the
phone screen, then reconnecting in the muted light.
“Hello, Lizzie,” his voice sounds in my ear and as my eyes pop in surprise. He once again
does the “shhh” thing, nodding to me to just listen. “I thought
about playing you ‘You Are So Beautiful,’ but surely you already
know that. This, you may not.”There’s a brief pause, then music starts… It’s “Have a Little Faith in Me.”
I know I whimper aloud, but I force my eyes to stay on his no matter how badly I want to hide
them and the building tears. Through the entire song, I stare and he stares back, mouthing the words every once in a while. With the closing notes, his voice returns.“Not too corny, I hope. Just…think about it. Sweet dreams, Lizzie.”
Apparently picking up on the fact I’ve been rendered incapable of functioning, he reaches over
and gently removes the earbud, taps the end of my nose with his fingertip, then closes my curtain for me.
I’ll have the corny with a side of corny please.

DARE TO SURRENDER (Dare To Love #3) by Carly Phillips:

 

dare to surrender

After ending a relationship to a cheating, domineering man, Isabelle Masters takes off in her leased Mercedes, only to be arrested for grand theft and hauled to a local police station. To her surprise, she is rescued by the most unlikely person possible, Gabriel Dare, a man she’s been attracted to for far too long. Gabe offers Isabelle freedom along with an invitation to Eden, an exclusive island resort where everything and anything is possible.

Although Gabe yearns to possess Isabelle, he knows all too well he must fight his primitive need to bind her to him, and instead help bring out the independent woman she yearns to become – or risk losing her for good.

A woman who needs to run her own life. A man who needs to exert control. Can she surrender to his erotic demands without losing her sense of self once more?

Kara's Review

I am a huge fan of Carly’s. I’ve read the other Dare books and I LOVED them. We met Gabe in Dare to Desire and I was very intrigued. He was broody and snarky and I love that in a man! He has a thing for Isabelle but she’s taken. He decides to sit back and just wait for her. An accidental meeting in a police station, he finds her handcuffed and penniless. He sees an opportunity and he takes it. Gabe wants to own her and she’s too independent for that but she can’t deny the pull to this hot, sexy man. They end up at Eden, an island resort where anything can happen. Can Gabe convince her to give herself to him fully? Can Isabelle let go of control and submit to Gabe. You have to read it to find out! Do not miss this one. We also get to see Gabe’s cousins from the other Dare books – I loved seeing what is going on with them. I can’t to read more from Carly!

Gabe’s very posture and demeanor set him apart from any other man I’d met. His white teeth, tanned skin, and chiseled features were put together in a way that made him extraordinarily handsome. That he owned the space and air around him merely added to his appeal.

“I can’t change what or who came before you, but I can tell you that you’re different. For me, to me. I don’t understand why, I just know. And if you give me the chance, I’ll prove it.”

It was like some unseen force telling me you were it. Not to let you go. And every time I saw you with him…I couldn’t breathe.”

“And make no mistake, Kitten, I always intend to give you what you need. A little bondage, some light punishment puts you back in the right headspace. That’s it. It’s all about you. It’ll always be about you.”

Excerpt

 

Gabe silently thanked God his houseguest escaped into the shower as soon as she possibly could. The tour of the house had just about done him in. Isabelle’s oohs and aahs had been genuine, as had her love of his favorite room in the place. Unlike Naomi, who had taken one look at his apartment and immediately begun calculating how she could move in permanently, Isabelle, who he had invited, not only wanted to pay her way but she planned to leave as soon as possible.

 

Not if he had his way.

 

Back at the police station, outside in the rain, it’d been all he could do not to reach out and swipe his hands over her responsive nipples, feel her tremble beneath his touch, and get rid of the ridiculous distance between them. He might not know her well, but he’d always felt they’d connected. The physical attraction was obvious. She was all woman, supple curves, her breasts full and lush, and she possessed one hell of an ass. His cock twitched with the desire he’d felt from the moment he’d first seen her on Daltry’s arm.

 

But things ran deeper. They’d shared banter and flirting during opportune moments when he’d caught her alone. He’d had glimpses of the intelligent, witty woman she was when not with that pompous ass. But not until today had he really seen beyond the exterior beauty to the depth beneath. Those sexy blonde curls that bounced wildly around her face were a proud testament to the fiercely independent woman she desperately wanted to be.

 

The woman he intended to help her find.

 

It wouldn’t be easy. Isabelle needed gentling. Understanding. Patience. Not his best traits, but when it came to her, he’d already exercised plenty. He’d bided his time, knowing Daltry would fuck up sooner or later. The balls that made him a crack financial investor also imbued an arrogance that would be his downfall. And it had been.

 

It was Gabe’s good fortune that Daltry’s screw-up had landed Isabelle at his brother’s police station. Seeing her there had given him insight he wouldn’t have had otherwise. In Isabelle, he saw an intriguing combination of weary life experience and innocent ingenue. It was the innocence the most primitive part of him wanted to conquer, to possess. Since he’d begun running his father’s empire at the age of twenty-one, the same age he’d been drafted into surrogate parenthood to his sister, he had always gotten what he wanted.

 

And Gabe wanted Isabelle.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Come to Me Quietly comes

a scorching new adult romance in the Closer to You series.

 

A second chance at life…

A second chance at love…

 

Jared Holt never thought he deserved either—until he found both in the arms of Aly Moore. Aly has loved Jared for as long as she can remember, and she’s more than ready for the future they’re making together. But Jared can’t help remembering his own family. And he’ll never forgive himself for what happened to them. How can he allow himself the very happiness he once destroyed?

To live a life worthy of Aly, Jared knows he has to stop running and finally put his past to rest. But when he decides to face his demons head on, he encounters more than he bargained for: a dangerous mix of jealousy, lies, and dishonest intentions. When those intentions threaten Aly, Jared loses all control, giving into the rage that earned him his bad boy reputation years before. And he’ll fight to protect her no matter what it costs…even if he destroys himself in the process.

Kara's Review

6hearts

I don’t even know where to start writing this review. I haven’t had this much trouble articulating my thoughts in a very long time. Let me start by saying AL Jackson is a literary genius.  The way that she uses words just blows my mind.  I really loved Come to me Quietly and that is a 5 star read for me. But, Come to me Softly is more. It’s deeper, hauntingly spectacular and it’s more than 5 stars. I was so absorbed in this story that I felt like I was there.  The writing is some of the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. 

Jared comes back to Aly but nothing has really changed. He’s still running from his past. Unable to overcome the guilt of what he believes that he has done. He does not feel worthy of Aly’s love or the love of anyone.  But, he wants to be with her. He needs to be with her. It’s like air for him. He can’t breathe with out her.  He is a tortured soul just keeping the guilt and sadness down far enough for weeks at a time. But he can’t continue to go on this way. Aly has loved him her entire life.  She feels him and she is his lifeline, but she can only take so much.  She’s strong and independent and does not want to live with out him, but she needs him to fight his demons and fight for them and their family. We see more of Christopher (YAY!) and more of Aly’s parents.  A few laughs did escape me.  Jared and Christopher have their own issues to overcome, but they both try to remember that they have been best friends since they were little boys and not even time and space can smother that kind of bond.   Jared is hot, sexy, broody, amazing. There are almost no words to describe his awesomeness.  I love him. I’ve missed him and I’m not sure I’ll ever be the same with out him.  This story is filled with love, loss, pain, joy, humor, hope, sex, destruction, creation, forgiveness, peace, and life.  It’s a top 5 read of 2014 for me. Do not miss this amazing story.

 

I pressed all my hard to her soft, holding her close against me as I flattened myself to the snowy skin of her back. Mmm…yeah. I was in love with this girl. And I wasn’t going to let her go.

 Instinctively, I twisted a lock of her hair with my finger. A bond. My home.

 And damn if just that little brush didn’t cause every last inch of my body to harden.

Motherfucking trigger.

 He dropped his cigarette to the ground and toed it out with his boot. Lifting his face, he pursed his lips and exhaled toward the sky. Smoke curled around his head, climbing toward the heavens before it bled into nothing.

A throaty chuckle rumbled from his mouth and floated out to embrace my sense in an inundating swell of joy. My heart pounded as he squeezed himself through the hole that led to the center of our world, where our dreams had been bred, where we’d discovered and grown into the people we were.

 “I can’t live without you, baby…can’t sleep without you…can’t breathe without you.”

 I melted. Then fell a little further for this man. Impossible? It should be. But in that moment I slipped deeper in love with him.

Aleena Moore is content with her life. She has goals and dreams and an easy smile. She also has a secret she holds locked inside.

Jared Holt believes he doesn’t deserve to love or be loved. He destroys everything he touches. Haunted by the mistake that shattered his life, he’s fled from the memory of that pain.

Jared doesn’t know why he’s compelled to return, but finds himself drawn back to the place where it all began. The exact place where it ended. When he runs into his childhood best friend, Aleena’s older brother Christopher, he agrees to share Christopher and Aleena’s apartment while he looks for a place of his own.

Aleena is no longer the little girl Jared remembers from his past and evokes feelings in him he never wanted to feel again. Terrified of destroying her, he fights to keep her away. But her touch is something he can’t resist—the touch that sealed his fate.

Their pasts are intertwined and their futures uncertain. The only truths they know are the secrets they whisper in the night.
