About CHARGED:

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes the second installment in the Saints of Denver series featuring a bad girl and a by the book attorney who could be her salvation…or her ruin.

Avett Walker and Quaid Jackson’s worlds have no reason to collide. Ever. Quaid is a high powered criminal attorney as slick as he is handsome. Avett is a pink-haired troublemaker with a bad attitude and a history of picking the wrong men.

When Avett lands in a sea of hot water because of one terrible mistake, the only person who can get her out of it is the insanely sexy lawyer. The last thing on earth she wants to do is rely on the no-nonsense attorney who thinks of her as nothing more than a nuisance. He literally has her fate in his hands. Yet there is something about him that makes her want to convince him to loosen his tie and have a little fun…with her.

Quaid never takes on clients like the impulsive young woman with a Technicolor dye job. She could stand to learn a hard lesson or two, but something about her guileless hazel eyes intrigues him. Still, he’s determined to keep their relationship strictly business. But doing so is becoming more impossible with each day he spends with her.

As they work side-by-side, they’ll have to figure out a way to get along and keep their hands off each other—because the chemistry between them is beyond charged.

REVIEW

Black

 All Avett Walker has to do is walk into a room and trouble follows her. A lifetime of regret and bad decisions, especially in men, has left her in a life altering predicament that her father may not be able to get her out of this time.

Quaid Jackson has finally grown into the man that he was determined to become. After a failed marriage, he will not let one blip on the radar stop him from being one of the most respected and sought after attorneys in his community.

When Quaid is asked to help Avett as a favor to a friend, he is blindsided by the sassy and energetic pink haired beauty. Even though he knows that a relationship could ultimately destroy everything that he has worked so hard to build and disintegrate the man that he has fought so desperately to become, Quaid cannot help his attraction to this credulous vixen. Knowing that he must protect her at all cost, he also knows after the first kiss, that he will never be the same ever again.

Though she has warned him repeatedly that she has nothing to offer Quaid that he cannot buy, Avett cannot deny her attraction to the handsome and confident defense attorney. A lifetime of men that have left her used and abused, Avett cannot help but feel that the rug will be pulled out from her any day so she knows that it is not a good idea to get attached. However, when his lips first touch hers, she knows that she is already in too deep to escape now.

This was my first Jay Crownover book and I LOVED it! The story was engaging the writing outstanding and the way that she had my pulse racing with these characters was like high that you don’t ever want to lose. Avett and Quaid were the classic case of opposites do attract and when they do, you get one hell of a sexy, sizzling and jaw-dropping read.

Panty Whisperer cms2.jpg


AP new - synopsis.jpg

 

I love women. I’m not ashamed to admit that making a beautiful woman come is my main goal in life—one that I accomplish night after night. Women are as drawn to me as I am to them. I don’t get turned down. It’s not a brag, just a fact. At least it was a fact. Until I met Quinn—the one woman who didn’t fall for my easy charm. Now, I have to have her. She may not want to get close, may not want to admit that I turn her on and can give her a night that she’ll never forget, but she was mine the first moment I saw her. Eventually, I’ll have her beneath me, my hands in her hair, and my name on her lips. It’s what I do. I’m the Panty Whisperer.

AP new - excerpt.jpg

“Jesus Christ. You’re going to leave me on the side of the highway?” I glare back at him. “Why are you doing this?”

“Because it’s my job.”

I stare at him like he’s some kind of strange alien. “What the fuck are you talking about? This is your job? You’re not making any sense.”

He rolls his eyes and starts slow clapping. “Very good, Herbert. Jesus H Christ, man.”

I’m still trying to figure out what he’s talking about as I lean up against the car. He still looks like he wants to whip my ass on the side of the road.

“Well, explain. I’m so stupid I obviously don’t get it.”

I can practically hear his jaw grinding. “Have you thought about Quinn the entire trip?” He takes a step toward me.

I try to think. Actually, I haven’t thought about her once.

“Or have you been pissed at me the entire time?”

I shove my hands in my pockets and look down at the ground.

“That’s what I thought. You’ve been pissed off at me. Worried about how fast we’re going. Do you know why I’m going slow? Because that girl that you supposedly love needs some fucking time to think. And god forbid she get more than just a couple of hours because the goddamned Panty Whisperer isn’t getting what he wants at the moment.” He takes another step toward me, and his eyes are bloodshot, haunting me as I look up at him. “Oh, you can blow her off for days, and she’s just supposed to drop everything for you. When you decide to come around. When you just show up at the airport, and her fucking job, busting into the middle of meetings at her work. No, you’re a fucking train wreck right now and I’m tired of watching you fuck it up. Tommy will take it from here. And if it means you being a pissed off little cry baby in the seat next to me, so be it, if it keeps you from being a little clingy ass stalker.”

I look at him, knowing he’s right, and the anger seems to have faded with his words. I give him a slight shrug. “I didn’t stalk her.”

A smile tries to fight through his now fake anger. “Yes you did. You stalked that poor girl all stalkily. Stalker Texas Ranger. You could write a short story about it if you want, William Stalkner.”

I turn to get in the car as he walks around the front, still staying in character as he points two fingers at his eyes and then points them at me. He opens his door and gets back in the car. Turning the key, he looks over at me.

“Go ahead, I know you have at least one more.” I chuckle.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” He puts the car in drive and gets back on the highway.

I reach for my phone to check my messages.

“Don’t you pull out that goddamn phone.” He gives me a side eye. “Fuck around and Joffrey will cut your head off, Ned Stalk.”

REVIEWPicMonkey Collage4When this book first started out, I was not so sure about it. The first few shorts made me feel like I was listening to the same song, different verse. However, I was determined to stay in the game and see it through and thank goodness I did.

In the beginning, Joel is portrayed as the consummate male strumpet that more than lives up to the name of the book. He is rude, crude and has a gift that most men only dream about. If being a douche were an Olympic sport, Joel Hannover would be a gold medalist hands down. But when one of his indiscretions leads him to the smart mouthed, sassy and sexy Quinn, Joel isn’t quite sure what to make of the situation.

Quinn is the kind of girl that you would want to be your best friend. She’s funny, smart and can switch from utter professional marketing guru, to drinking you under the table with the flip of a switch. If the situation calls for her to think like a pubescent teenage boy, then she can do it.

When these two get together, things start to get really good and even though they have their doubts, they find it is nearly impossible for them to stay away from one another. Throw in some scene stealing best friends, hilariously mundane Star Wars references, and some rather risqué’ panty melting moments and you’ve got yourself an awesome read.

Quick, fun, and seemingly inappropriate, TPW will give you laughing to tears one minute, and thanking the panty whispering gods for men like Joel the next!

FINAL WRAP
RELEASE MAY 10TH

They say in order to find yourself you have to go home.
What if home was what you’re running from?
Where did that leave you?
Always on the other side of the fence.
Always looking in.
Always wishing you were someone you couldn’t be.
Until one day you meet her.
The one.
She was my high, but she was also…
My demise.

Colors
blended together making it hard to focus on one thing. I blinked a few times
and just like that…

I
saw her face.
As
if she was standing right in front of me.
Smiling.
Happy.
Laughing.
My
whole world…
My
girl.
I
felt my lips curl up slightly at the vision as I reached out for her. Wanting
to touch her, needing to hold her, yearning to kiss her. Craving, God, craving
to fucking love her.
“I’m
sorry,” I murmured out loud to no one but the illusion of my drug-infested
mind. “I’m so fucking sorry,” I repeated repentantly, longing for her to
believe me.
Aching
for her to love me again like she used to.
I
don’t know how long I sat there, staring at her beautiful face before my eyes,
subconsciously rubbing the tattooed key that was placed over my heart. I
couldn’t take it anymore, and the desire won over the haze.
It
was too powerful.
It
was too vivid.
I
grabbed my phone. “Baby,” I said into the speaker. The ringing quickly
followed, going straight to voicemail. I hung up and tried again. “Baby,” I
urged with desperation in my tone.
Still
nothing.
I
tried again and again and again.
I
would try until the end of time if that’s what it took for her to answer.
To
talk to me.
To
save me.
To
crave me.
Time
just seemed to standstill, as my life slowly played out in front of me. Trying
to balance in between the light and the darkness when all I could see was gray.
“What?!”
she screamed into the phone, finally answering after I don’t know how many
failed attempts. “What the hell do you want now?”
“Mi
cielo.” I breathed a sigh of relief.
She
ignored my term of endearment. I hadn’t called her that in such a long time.
My
heaven.
“What
do you want, Austin? Why are you calling me? We’re over! I can’t do this
anymore!”  
I shut
my eyes and let my mind wonder, allowing it to go to another place in time
where she didn’t hate me.
“I
remember the first time I made you smile,” I chuckled, as if it had just
happened.
My
nerves were on fire. The mere sound of her breathing through the phone was too
intense for me. I licked my lips, my mouth suddenly dry.
“I
remember when you used to smile just for me. Do you remember, baby? Do you
remember what my love feels like?”
I
heard her faintly breathing.
“Do
you remember my hands on you? My lips? My tongue? The first time I made you
come with my mouth? Do you remember all the times since? Tell me I’m not
forgotten. Tell me you remember, baby.”
Silence.
“I
love you, Briggs. I love you so fucking much. You’re killing me, don’t you see
that? I’m dying without you.”
“No,
Austin. You were dying with me,” she rasped, knowing that it killed her to say
that.
“The
first time I saw your face, I thought to myself, damn, this beautiful girl is
goin’ to be the death of me. You were perfect in every way. I was a cocky son
of a bitch who needed you then, as much as I need you now.” 
More
silence.
“I
had a dream about you, baby. I always fucking dream about you. In my dream you
had a ring on your finger. A ring I put there. You belonged to me. Only mine.
Forever fucking mine. You were pregnant, Briggs. You looked so goddamn happy. I
saw light at the end of the tunnel for the first time in years.”
She
sniffled into the phone.
“I
made love to you. Slow, just the way you love. Taking my time to touch every
last inch of your body. Memorizing every last bit of you. Making you come until
you begged me to stop. I didn’t.”
“I
can’t—” she tried to interject, but I didn’t let up.
“I
kissed your stomach. Our baby. Letting my lips linger there, whispering sweet
lullabies, letting her know daddy will always be there. Baby, it was so real.
For a second I gave you the one thing you so desperately wanted, the one thing
I can’t give you.”

REVIEWBlackI am seriously at a loss for words on this one. Not because it was bad, just because it was that freaking awesome. I knew Austin’s story was going to be tough, but I didn’t even begin to scratch the surface on how much so.

While the beginning of the book started out a little slow for me, when this story kicked into high gear, there was no turning back. Feels, feels and more feels. My emotions were all over the place.

Austin and Briggs were an undeniable force together and apart. Even through all of the ups and downs, you could just feel their love and devotion to one oozing from the words on the pages of the book. Love, angst, hurt, anger, laughter, you name it and Crave Me has it.

This is a very serious and thought provoking read and don’t think for a minute that you can just read it, close it up, and easily walk away. This is one that will most definitely stay with you.

Charlotte Lane was the tomboy who lived next door.

Eyes the color of the summer sky.

Mounds of curly blond hair.

A little bit of sassy and a whole lot of sweet.

She was my best friend. My confidant. My salvation.

Then one wrong turn brought her back into my life and now she’s under my skin. In the midst of all the chaos surrounding us, she’s what’s changing me. Practically bringing me to my knees. Driving me to want to be a better man.

But nothing is ever easy.

And as our worlds begin to crumble…so do we.

Our bond withstood the test of time, but when the future brings the unexpected, it will either draw us closer or tear us apart.

REVIEWPicMonkey Collage4The second book picks up where the first one left off. The closer that Charlotte and Jasper become, the more mysterious that things become. Those that were once deemed friends, have now become potential foes, and the Motor City lovers are not sure who they can trust.

Still trying to fulfill his dream of bringing his once vibrant hometown back from the brink of financial ruin, Jasper is determined to make his automotive plant a reality, all while trying to find out exactly what happened to his father when he was a child.

Charlotte is finally starting to realize that she has finally risen above being the discarded daughter of one of Detroit’s prominent businessmen. No longer plagued by the black cloud that hung over her head, she is determined to forge ahead with her life, including the childhood friend that has now turned lover. With Jasper by her side, these two will stop at nothing to right wrongs and have a life that never dreamed possible.

Readers, brace yourselves and buckle up. The conclusion to The Detroit Love Duet will take you one h*ll of a thrilling ride so racy and intense, that you will not know what hit you!

TURN IT UP TEASER 2Jasper Storm

What kind of person willingly drives a thirty-six-foot racing machine at breakneck speed through ten-foot waves?

The kind that isn’t put off by the possibility of smashing his nose against the steering wheel if he has to come to an abrupt stop when racing around the track—that’s who.

Today though, Lake St. Clair tops out with uninhibiting two-foot waves at the most, and my speed is tempered by the amount of passengers on board.

Classic Beatles is playing from the speakers on deck. Drew is leaning back in the cushions of the wraparound benches behind me with a beer in his hand. Jake and Shannon are sitting up in the sun loungers on the bow, both also with brews in hand.

Sitting at the helm, Charlotte is standing next to me in a simple black bikini that shows so much skin it is driving me crazy, her mounds of blond curls blowing in the wind making my fingers itch to run through them, and her sunglasses preventing me from seeing her blue eyes. I wrap my arm around her and guide her to stand in front of me. “You take the wheel.”

“I haven’t driven a boat in years.”

Standing, I pull her even closer. My board shorts feeling tighter by the second. “It’s like riding a bike.”

Looking over her shoulder at me, she gives me a quick kiss on the cheek. “I’ll give it a try,” she says.

Just that slight touch of her lips ignites a fire that starts to flame through my veins. When she takes the wheel, my body is ablaze. Unable to keep my hands off her, I compromise my need to touch her by covering my hands over hers. The cast prohibiting me from making the full connection I’m craving. I hate that she still bears the mark of her attack. I shove that thought away.

It’s a beautiful day, sunny as fuck and not a cloud in sight. The wind has picked up a little the further out we go, and when the softness of her hair brushes against my neck, it sends a shiver racing down my spine.

Taking a seat in the captain’s chair, I pull her onto my lap. The slight curves of her body fit me perfectly. Unable to compromise any longer, discreetly, my hands roam her body. Sliding down her thighs, up her arms, tucking under the small fabric at her hips. I can’t help myself.

Ten minutes or so goes by as we pass over the water like it’s a sheet of glass. I kiss her—her neck, her throat, her jaw. Take a little nip at her shoulder and then soothe it with my tongue.

Concentrating on driving, I’m surprised when she unexpectedly tips her head back so we can kiss.

The instant douse of arousal I feel is unlike that from the small flirtatious moves I’ve been making. This is full-out sexuality. Our lips meet, softly, gingerly. She’s sitting on my thigh, and her ass is against my cock. She shifts a little and I groan softly against the wet slide of her tongue, and all the muscles in my body knot in sweet tension. The fire in my veins bursts into flames from the slight friction, and all I want is more. The pull and push of the connection we share seems to be growing stronger every time we’re together.

Unlatching her lips from mine, she turns back and focuses on the open water.

She feels it too.

The tightening in my cock, the rapid beat of my pulse, and the taste of her left on my tongue puts me into a state of overdrive. I hold onto her fingers, squeeze them, press my naked chest to her bare back, and try to temper my need for her.

Taking what I can, I then inhale a deep breath. Unable to calm the storm raging inside me, I know I have to take action. This isn’t a storm of conflict, this is one of pure male need. “You have to stand up,” I murmur into her ear.

Again, she tips her head back. “Why?”

“You know why.”

The little vixen shifts a little more and grinds a little harder against my cock.

“Behave,” I growl and quickly stand up, bringing her with me, and then I ease up on the throttle and put the cabin cruiser in neutral.

“What’s going on? Jake asks.

I switch the engine off. “Taking a quick dip,” I tell him as I narrow my eyes at Charlotte.

She shrugs all innocent like.

“Remind me to spank you later,” I whisper in her ear.

Surprisingly, I see a thrill in her eyes.

Waggling my brows at her, my little problem is only growing, so I quickly hop up to the side of the boat and dive into the lake. The water is fucking freezing out this far and just what I need. For now anyway.

Splash. Splash.

Release Blitz & Review – Stout by Georgia Cates

Stout Cover Art_SmallerCraft beer and the sexy men who brew it.

A beautiful neighbor. A complete stranger. That’s all she was when I moved in next door.

Adelyn Maxwell is my neighbor but she’s no girl next door. The more I come to know her, the more I discover she’s a good girl with a lovely dark side. And maybe I don’t want her to stay on her side of the fence.

I want to disturb the rhythm of her pulse.

I want to see the way her hair spills on the bed when she lies beneath me.

I want her to teach me the dirty pretty things she desires behind closed doors. And she does.

But mostly I want to leave my mark on the most intimate, untouched part of her body. Her heart.

A seemingly insignificant intersection of our lives neither of us recalls suddenly becomes a pivotal moment in our future. We aren’t strangers at all. And our paths aren’t crossing for the first time.

These twists and turns of fate will become one of two things: a wrecking ball to tear us apart or the connection to bond us together forever.

 Oliver Thorn’s POV

“Control. And how I feel when you exert your strength over me. Domination. Power. Control. All of it turns me the fuck on.”
“Why?”
“There’s something primal and exhilarating about a man who takes complete control in the bedroom. That’s what it’s about for me. I want to feel desire. Real desire. I need a man who will grab me and make me feel small and vulnerable and feminine. Without hurting me.”
She releases my hands and sits upright, still mounted on top of me. “Outside of the bedroom, it’s all a level playing field. I’m an independent woman, and I control everything in my life. But in the bedroom . . . I want to be controlled by a strong man.”
“And choked.”
“I need an alpha male. I crave the dominance and show of strength he has over me.” She reaches for my hands and intertwines our fingers. “You’re the first man I’ve trusted in years. I couldn’t have let anyone else put their hands on me that way. It had to be you.” She releases my hands and leans over me, propping on her lower arms, but her hands grasp my face. She presses a soft, closemouthed kiss on my lips. “Only you, Thorn.”
She wants an alpha. A controller. A choker.
God help me, I like what I just did to her. I want to do it again. And that’s totally fucked up.
I spent my childhood being controlled, dominated, choked. What kind of person does it make me if I do those things to her? Even if it’s what she wants?
“I can’t, Max.”
She presses her forehead to mine. “You can. You did.” I did. And it was wrong.
So. Fucking. Wrong.
“But not again.”
“I saw your face. You liked my submission. You liked putting your hand on me like that. You weren’t repulsed. And in those few moments when you held my life in your hands, I belonged to you. I knew it. You knew it. And you liked it.”

REVIEWBlack

Woo lord! I know I sound like a broken record, but I swear every new book that I read by this author becomes my new favorite.

I will admit that while I loved Tap and thought that there would be no one better than him, I immediately fell in love with Stout, aka Oliver from the early pages of this book. He was sweet, sensitive, sexy and was just the all-around perfect package. Even though it is clearly stated that he was recovering from a bad break up and had no interest in pursuing a serious relationship, I never got that selfish, manipulating vibe from him. He is seriously my new favorite in the Lovibond series.

I loved the character of Adelyn just as much. She was strong, vibrant and oozed this degree of sophisticated sexiness that you do not see in many heroines. While she was dealing with her own issues of the past as well, she was immediately drawn to Stout but the deck just seemed to be stacked against them at every turn. However, these two didn’t let life stand in the way of the beautiful friendship and budding romance that you know is going to be inevitable, just from reading their individual point of views.

Ms. Cates has a tremendous ability to grab your attention within the first few pages of her books and envelopes you in a story that is truly so astounding that you cannot put it down. There are so many times that you think that the book could be wrapped up, and then she hits you with another lustrous part of the story that keeps you so enthralled that and before you know it, you’ve read the entire book in a matter of hours.

Phoenix is the fourth installment in The Bellator Saga. It should be read after the first three novels in the series.

REVIEWBlackFor private reasons, this was probably not the best book for me to read at the moment, but there was no way that I could miss another second without my favorite politically autonomous couple.

Phoenix was a very intensely emotional book and probably the most unique in the series thus far.

The struggles that Jack and Caroline steadily endure are pretty in depth and really hit home in quite a few scenes. The ambivalent emotional turmoil that they have and continue to experience was so heart wrenching left me in tears one moment, and wanting to strangle them the next.

There was a large portion of the book that I wanted to literally reach through and strangle Caroline, but the more that the story developed, the more my heart just ached for her and how she was coping with such traumatic and life altering experiences. I don’t think that I could ever say anything bad about my favorite Governor, but a large portion of his dialogue was difficult to read as well. The turmoil of loving someone so much and having that love dangled just beyond your reach was tough to comprehend at times.

The more that I read this series, the more that I become so emotionally vested in these characters and their lives. There are so few books out there that impact readers in such a profound and fascinating manner, but this series is definitely one that will inevitably continually captivate you the cover until you read the words The End.

This personal note is something the author asked that we share with you:

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR

This book is not a romantic fairy tale. Yet, it’s the most romantic story I’ve ever told. It’s a journey of pain and loss, of hope and happiness. It’s both achingly tragic and exquisitely beautiful. It’s a love story. A true love story about real love. The kind that sees you through the night and holds you when you cry. The kind that won’t give up and never lets go. The kind we all dream about and few find. But it’s real. I promise you, it’s real. I’ve seen this kind of love, and I’ve seen this kind of heartbreak. I got to see it up close and personal, and quite honestly, I will never be the same. I hope it changes you as much as it changed me.

The Empty Jar

 Three months touring Europe.

Romantic. Dazzling. Unforgettable.

The trip of a lifetime.

But some lifetimes are shorter…

We couldn’t have known it would work out this way. No one could. No one could’ve guessed that something so beautiful could be so tragic.

But it is tragic.

Yet so, so beautiful.

That’s what sacrifice is—beauty and tragedy.

It’s pain and suffering for something or someone you love.

And this is the ultimate sacrifice.

One stunning act of true love.

This is our story.

Our true love story.

REVIEWBlackMAJOR FEELS with this one! Even though I was forewarned, I did not expect this book to impact me on the level that it did.

This will be one of the most difficult reviews that I have ever written because I still have so much of this story going through my head and I just want to go on and on as to why you should read this book. Sadly, I am going to have to keep this one short and sweet so that I do not spoil it for anyone that has not had the pleasure of reading it yet.

Lena and Nate will impact you on so many levels that there is no way that their story cannot impact you on some level. The commitment of the characters of this story, will make you believe and trust in yourself and your faith that so many things are possible if you just believe. Honesty, loyalty and faith are three things that are key to everyone’s life journey, but most of all, love is what truly completes us.

Superb job by Ms. Leighton! This book is one that will stay with me for a very long time indeed.

RELEASE BLITZ, REVIEW & $50GC Giveaway: Hustler by Meghan Quinn & Jessica Prince

We’re celebrating the release of HUSTLER by Meghan Quinn and Jessica Prince! 

HUSTLER by Meghan Quinn & Jessica Prince

Scheduled to release: May 9, 2016
NA Romantic Comedy
Cover designer: Meghan Quinn
Goodreads
Amazon: http://amzn.to/21zWvyG

BLURB:
I make my living as a hustler, and I’m great at it.
I don’t have a single tell and use that to my advantage to manipulate any situation.
I’ve always known what a person is about to do before they’ve even decided.

That is, until I met Nell.
I can’t get a read on her, and what’s worse, she doesn’t want anything to do with me.
Which only makes me want her more.

Now I’m in for the hardest hustle of my life.
Somehow I have to convince Nell that she belongs with me.
Good thing I’m always up for a challenge.

EXCERPT:
Casually, I sit on the side of the table and take a sip of my drink as I let her eyes peruse my body. It’s a power move. Even though I’m eager to get to know this little hellion, I mask my reaction to her. Never show and tell, especially with women.

I can feel her eyes scanning me, focused on the bit of exposed skin near the collar of the shirt. They then travel down my stomach – little does she know what’s hiding underneath my clothing – and then to my crotch, then she immediately refocuses on her hands. I caught her though, she’s a goner as far as I’m concerned.

“Penelope Prescott,” I start, but I’m quickly interrupted.

“Nell.”

“Excuse me?”

“Everyone calls me Nell,” she clarifies.

I set my glass down and study her before saying, “Too bad for you, I’m not everyone.” Her mouth falls agape for a second before she closes it, trying not to let her shock show. I have a rather up front personality, it can catch some people off guard. Clearly, she’s one of them. “Now tell me, Penelope, how long have you worked for Hotel Paragon?”

I know the answer to my question, but when you’re holding the upper hand, you not only want to show power, but you also want to make the other person feel as though they have some control over the situation, when in fact, they don’t. Poker 101.

She wrings her hands together on her lap. Tell number one.

She’s nervous, but there’s a confidence in her eyes that almost boasts a cocky air around her. Unfortunately for her, I’m a master at reading people, so she’s doesn’t fool me one bit.

With her head held high, she answers, “A little over a year now.”

I nod. “And how long have you been working in the high roller room?”

She bites her lip before answering. Tell number two.

“It’s my first day today.”

I nod again. “And before you started, were you informed that the men playing at the table you would be serving are valuable members to this hotel, some of our most lavish and esteemed customers?”

She twirls a strand of hair around her finger. Tell number three.

“Yes, sir.”

“Mr. Saint,” I inform her.

“Sorry, yes, Mr. Saint.” She grits out my name, as if it’s painful for her to say.

REVIEWPicMonkey Collage4

Gavin the hustler! Cocky, smart mouthed, and oozes sex appeal, he is a man that is in control of his destiny and has a knack for reading people. That is until an unsuspecting, sexy and feisty cocktail waitress crosses his path.

Penelope is one of the millions of people that have come to Sin City in hopes of making it big. A performer by trade, she begins waitressing to make ends meet and help out her parents until she catches her big break.

Gavin is thrown for a loop when they cross paths in the infamous High Roller room at the Hotel Paragon. When these two connect, let the witty banter and panty melting moments commence.

A rather quick, funny and sexy read, Hustler is one that will have you laughing out loud one moment, and cringing your knees together the next. You will not be disappointed for sure.

Release Blitz & Review – Deception by Aleatha Romig

BK3 Deception E-Book Cover (2)DECEPTION, book THREE of FIVE in Aleatha Romig’s INFIDELITY series.

“Infidelity – it isn’t what you think”

It all began in Del Mar, a chance meeting with a single rule–one week only.

Or did it?

Lennox ‘Nox’ Demetri and Alexandria ‘Charli’ Collins had every intention of following it but rules are made to be broken. In CUNNING they are reunited with Nox setting down new rules for the game and Charli having no choice but to follow them.

Now, once again, the game has changed. Nox and Charli’s hot sensual encounter has grown into something more but it is threatened with secrets and regrets. Is it their love and intense sexual chemistry that’s pushing them together or something darker, a puppetmaster behind the scenes pulling the strings on their love affair?

Shadowy villains lurk around each corner and everyone is suspect as Nox’s and Charli’s pasts collide with the present and threaten to compel them back to their predestined fates.

Can deals brokered in the past be negated by something as pure as love and as steamy as the attraction shared by Nox and Charli? Or was it all a deception—starting with that very first meeting?

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig twists and turns, the depth of this epic romantic suspense continues to reach new levels as past and present intertwine. The Infidelity series will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

DECEPTION is a full-length novel, over 300 pages, and the third of five books in the INFIDELITY series – It isn’t what you think!

REVIEWBlackWhen you finish a book that leaves you unsure if you want to cry, scream or take tequila shots, you know it was good. That my friends is what you call being Aleatha’d and I love every minute of it.

When I started reading Deception, I kept thinking to myself that I wished this series and its characters could go on forever. For some reason, I had in my head that the series was ending after this book, but much to my astonishment and excitement, there will be more Charli and Nox. It is like getting an early birthday present.

Weaving my way through even more twist and turns than I thought possible, this book in my eyes was the pinnacle of the series and showed me that there is absolutely no boundaries that cannot be accomplished and no stone will be left unturned. The more you think you have it figured out, the more you realize that you couldn’t be further from the truth.

I was a little perplexed in the beginning, because I had some concerns about the direction that Nox’s character was headed, but as the book developed, I knew that this was yet another turn in the diabolical scheme that makes this author one of the greatest writers out there.

 DECEPTION - ANY WOMAN

Pat leaned back against the couch. “I had a good feeling seeing you with Lennox. Besides, you have that whole one-week history…” He fingered the rim of his wine glass, and I tried to ignore how it reminded me of my martini glass only hours before. “I’m sure you can work through this.”
“He has my number.”
“If these were normal circumstances, I’d tell you to forget all about him. I mean, who needs someone like Lennox Demetri? I can only imagine it’d be awful to have a boyfriend who redecorates a room for you, practically weeks after you move in. One who cares enough about your dreams to pay for your education and buy you whatever you want or need, one who gives you the ability to tell Uncle Alton and Aunt Adelaide to stick their conditions up their tight asses. And girl, his looks. Damn, nobody wants to put up with those sexy blue eyes. I mean the way they light up when you walk into a room and he looks at you like he’d eat you whole. I can see how that would get old fast.” He took a drink of his wine. “Honestly, I’m not sure how you managed to stay for this long.” He shrugged. “There’s always good ole Bryce.”
I sat forward, put my wine glass on the coffee table, and after placing my elbows on my knees, cradled my head. “I don’t need Bryce. Why do I need a man?”
“If you don’t know the answer to that question, my opinion of Lennox Demetri has just plummeted. I mean, I’m sure you have a vibrator.”

BETRAYAL 1One week. No future. No past. No more.

Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as “Charli,” she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.

“Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”

Lennox “Nox” Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive—he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one:

One week. No more.

When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.

“Is it really cheating if you’re doing it to yourself?”

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants, and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new epic dark romance will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next. Have you been Aleatha’d?

BETRAYAL is a full-length novel and the first of five in the INFIDELITY series.

CUNNING 1“He owns you. Whatever he tells you to do you do”.

 

One year. No future. A past that won’t go away.

Lennox “Nox” Demetri broke his own rule by making a deal. It may not have been directly with the devil, but that doesn’t mean Satan himself isn’t watching. Was it fate that brought Charli into his life and his bed? What will happen when rules are broken and secrets are revealed?

“New rules…my rules.”

Alex “Charli” Collins found pleasure with Nox like she’d never known. That was before she knew his last name. Now that Infidelity is involved and the rules have changed, what will result when real life and fantasy collide?

Is it really cheating if you’re doing it to yourself?

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own. With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, the depth of this new, epic dark romance reaches new levels and will have readers swooning one minute and screaming the next.
