Review and Excerpt Tour – One Baby Daddy by Meghan Quinn

“What are you doing now that your team is out of the running for the Stanley Cup?”

Forget.

I need to forget. I need an escape.

Only one person isn’t falling for my reputation as the NHL’s Golden Boy; she captured my attention the minute she called me out for snooping through my best friend’s house. She didn’t want to hear my reason–she only wanted to playfully give me a hard time.

Adalyn is bold, sassy–and the perfect escape.

She’s everywhere. In town and in my dreams, and suddenly I need to spend every waking moment with her.

And I do, making this summer the best off-season I’ve ever had.

But in the midst of getting lost in Adalyn, what I don’t expect is to get her pregnant.

And what I definitely don’t expect is having to fight for her affection.

EXCERPT

“Would you mind zipping up the back of my dress?” She walks toward me, her flowery scent floating in my direction, spiking my yearning into overdrive.

“Uh, yeah . . . sure.”

She turns around, and looks over her shoulder. The back of her dress is completely open, the zipper undone to just above the curve of her beautifully round ass.

Shit, all that smooth, tan skin, covered by nothing but the velvety fabric of the dress. Is she wearing underwear? She’s not wearing a bra and I see no panty line.

Clearing my throat, I ask, “Are you wearing underwear, Adalyn?”

From over her shoulder, she smiles shyly. “Yes, it’s small though.”

Of course it is. Why wouldn’t it be?

Not being able to stop myself, I take a second to float my fingertips up her spine. From the initial touch, her back arches and a small gasp releases from her lips, but before I can think about stopping, she melts into my touch. Stepping closer, I place my hand on the back of her hip, my thumb pressing into her ass while the other hand explores the bare expanse of her back. Her head falls to my shoulder. Her lips part, and when I snake to the front of her dress, her breath hitches.

Eyes closed, I take in ragged breaths, my fingers inching closer and closer to her front, my cock painfully hard.

It’s been so goddamn long—and being with Adalyn has only spurred on my need—but I want to make sure we’re in a good place before we commit to anything. I want to make sure she’s ready emotionally because the minute I bury myself deep inside her, I know there will be no turning back. She will be mine forever.

But maybe for now, I can just have a little touch . . .

My cock pressed against her butt, she expertly grinds her backside into me, her hands moving to my neck, pulling my head down to hers. I kiss the side of her neck, using the hand that’s gripping her hips to guide her with her grinding in just the right place.

Fuck, that feels good.

I grunt, the sound vibrating over her sleek neck. My hand on her stomach, she arches wanting more of my touch, silently asking me to move north.

And I fucking comply. Inch by slow inch, I guide my hand to just below her breasts. When I halt my pursuit, a displeased groan escapes her.

“Hayden, please.”

I squeeze my eyes shut, trying to find the willpower. Her fingernails dig into my scalp, spurring me on as she turns her head and finds my lips.

She kisses me.

Hot.

Wet.

Needy.

Her lips gliding across mine, her tongue diving into my mouth, her moans are vocal and sexy. Her delicious ass, pressing, grinding, undulating against my rock-hard cock makes me want to do so much more, makes me want to taste so much more.

Moving my hand higher, my fingertips graze the bottom of her breast. Soft. Round. Smooth. I caress her right below her nipple, never touching, just teasing . . . tempting.

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Finding love half way around the world

An Ocean Between Us by Serenity Woods

Cover.jpg

Yet again Serenity Woods has managed to captivate me with an absolutely amazing romance novel and got me all excited for the next book in the series which is out later this month. The second book in the Between the Sheets series, An Ocean Between Us tells the story of Danny and Hermione – two people who come from backgrounds that are literally and figuratively oceans apart (I love when the title so accurately describes the book!!).

Danny is the landscape gardener hired to work on Hermione’s parents’ holiday house in New Zealand. Hermione comes from London, England and is the daughter of an Earl – she’s high class, rich and in New Zealand for a getaway. After a quite amusing case of mistaken identity, it’s clear that these two are very attracted to one another, but with Hermione’s life back in London and Danny loving his home in New Zealand could it ever really work…

Serenity weaves some heavy themes into this story and yet it never brings the overall plot down, instead it enhances it and gives greater depth to the characters. From the class system in England (which as an Australian I found fascinating since we, like New Zealand, are basically a class-less country) to arranged/assumed marriages and from caring for a chronically ill parent to the importance of finding somewhere to belong; I enjoyed delving into these deeper issues alongside what is a steamy and sensual love story.

Every book I read of Serenity’s confirms for me why she is so successful at what she does – and An Ocean Between Us is another great example of her ability to deliver a gorgeous love story with characters I really come to care about.

When FATE finds you LOVE

Unbreakable Bond by Jess Bryant

40120548

I have been so keen to read this book since Jess Bryant first announced that she was writing her first paranormal romance novel. Despite being a big fan of Twilight, I haven’t read many books in this genre but I’m definitely keen to find some more good quality paranormal romance books. This was also my first shifter – in this case werewolf shifter – romance and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! Jess has done an incredible job of creating a captivating romance that has a fascinating folklore base which she explained beautifully and in no way detracted from the story.

Zoey has grown up in a shifter community – adopted by a werewolf couple who couldn’t have kids – and her best friend Michael is a werewolf, the alpha pack leader and the man she has loved for most of her life. However, in the shifter world, werewolves don’t “fall in love” in the traditional human way… they have a mate, someone destined to be theirs … and unfortunately Zoe is not fated to be Michael’s. When Michael’s brother Rafe comes back to town and it seems that he is the werewolf fated to be Zoey’s mate – well expect some fireworks and one incredible story!!

What I loved about this story was the fact it unfolded over a few days and was told in almost “real time”. I love a romance where you feel like you get to know the characters so well as they start to fall in love. And while Rafe and Zoey’s relationship is a definite insta-lust, insta-love situation, in the shifter world that Jess has created it doesn’t feel unnaturally forced like it can in a “regular” romance novel. The connection between these two is real and beautiful and they make an incredible pair. While fate brings them together, it’s their true feelings for each other that will make or break a potential ongoing relationship.

The overarching storyline – and “bad guy” – continues into the next story which is Michael’s and his fated mate Luna. I was glad that Rafe and Zoey’s story concludes but I’m super keen to find out how the rest of the arc they started in Unbreakable Bond plays out.

Blog Tour – Bane by L.J. Shen

SBPR-BT-BANNER-2

Bane-Cover-Facebook

Bane, the highly-anticipated next standalone in the Sinners of Saint Series by L.J. Shen is LIVE

Bane

Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.

Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.

Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.

Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.

Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

Jesse Carter

Hot as hell, cold as ice.

I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.

She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time.

She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.

More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.

Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.

EXCERPT

Bane

Then.

A liar.

A con.

A godless thief.

My reputation was a big wave that I rode, one that swallowed everyone around me, drowning every attempt to fuck with what’s mine.

I’d been known as a stoner, but power was my real drug of choice. Money meant nothing. It was tangible, and therefore easy to lose. See, to me, people were a game. One I’d always known how to win.

Move the rooks around.

Change the queen when necessary.

Guard the king at all fucking times.

I was never distracted, never deterred, and never jealous.

So, imagine my surprise when I found myself being all three at once.

It was a siren with coal black hair who robbed me of riding the biggest wave I’d seen that summer. Of my precious attention. Of my goddamn breath.

She glided from the ocean to the beach like nightfall.

I crouched down, straddling my surfboard, gawking.

Edie and Beck stopped beside me, floating on their boards in my periphery.

“This one’s taken by Emery Wallace,” Edie had warned. Thief.

“This one’s the hottest masterpiece in town.” Beck had chuckled. Con.

“More importantly, she only dates rich bastards.” Liar.

I had all the ingredients to pull her in.

Her body was a patch of fresh snow. White, fair, like the sun shone through her, never quite soaking in. Her skin defied nature, her ass defied my sanity, but it was the words on her back that made my logic rebel.

It wasn’t her curves or the way she swayed her hips like a dangling, poisonous apple that warranted my reaction to her.

It was that tattoo I had noticed when she swam close to me earlier, the words trickling down the nape of her neck and back in a straight arrow.

My Whole Life Has Been Pledged to This Meeting with You

Pushkin.

I only knew one person who went gaga over the Russian poet, and, like the famous Alexander, he was currently six feet under.

My friends began to paddle back to shore. I couldn’t move. It felt like my balls were ten tons heavy. I didn’t believe in love at first sight. Lust, maybe, but even that wasn’t the word I was looking for. No. This girl fucking intrigued me.

“What’s her name?” I snatched Beck’s ankle, yanking him back to me. Edie stopped pedaling and looked back, her gaze ping-ponging between us.

“Doesn’t matter, bro.”

“What’s. Her. Name?” I repeated through a locked jaw.

“Dude, she’s, like, way young.”

“I will not repeat myself a third time.”

Beck’s throat bobbed with a swallow. He knew damn well that I didn’t mess around. If she was legal—it was on.

“Jesse Carter.”

Jesse Carter was going to be mine before she even knew me.

Before I even knew her.

Before her life turned upside down and her fate rewrote itself with her blood.

So here was the truth that even my lying ass wouldn’t admit later on in our story—I wanted her before.

Before she became business.

Before the truth caged her in.

Before the secrets gushed out.

I never did get to surf that day.

My surfboard broke.

Should have known it was an omen.

My heart was going to be next in line.

And for a small chick, she did one hell of a fucking job obliterating it.

The princess saves herself

Bane by L.J. Shen

LJSBaneBookCover6x9_MEDIUM

I’ll admit that I am very late to L.J. Shen’s Sinners of Saints series, having read all four books in less than a month. But as someone who enjoys binge reading a series, I can definitely say this is a series worth reading and I’m more than glad I got around to meeting this diverse group of characters.

Bane isn’t an original HotHole but he intrigued everyone with his presence in Edie and Trent’s story Scandalous and I’m thrilled he got his own book. This story is a perfect example of how two broken people can find a way to be whole with and in spite of one another. I’m such a huge fan of seeing a beaten down heroine rise above her demons and become a better person because of it and the journey Jesse Carter goes on is nothing short of incredible. I was cheering her on as she began to come out of her shell – due to, mainly, Bane/Roman’s influence – and seeing her defeat those who beat her down was epic!!

“Maybe love wasn’t about feeling happy and whole. Maybe love was about breaking so the person you cared for would feel a little more whole.”

Roman “Bane” Protsenko is well known in Todos Santos for his “business” schemes, his laid back surfer attitude and his reputation as a ladies man. But all that begins to change when Jesse enters his life – albeit for circumstances he keeps from her for most of the book – and the growth Roman also goes through is a pleasure to read. This book had me hooked from the first chapter – and OMG 😮 what a chapter 😭 – and had me guessing and turning pages until the very end. I was stunned by some of the twists and that’s an absolute credit to Leigh and her ability to craft a fabulous story!

Jesse is one of my favourite book heroines this year and Bane is definitely a book I won’t be forgetting in a hurry.

Time to Breathe

Breathe by Carly Phillips

38315814.jpg

I really enjoyed this second book in Carly Phillips’ Rosewood Bay series and I’m very much looking forward to reading the remaining two books. This story focuses on the eldest Ward sister Phoebe as she is reunited with her first love and father of her child, the gorgeous Jake Nichols. But a lot has happened in the 11 years since they last saw each other and it won’t be easy to reconnect after all this time. Throw in an ex-wife, Jake’s 6 year old daughter Callie and some secrets kept from Phoebe by her Aunt Joy and this story held my interest and kept me guessing.

What I particularly noticed about Breathe – as opposed to so many other romance novels I’ve read lately – is that there wasn’t big dramatic occurrence that pulled the main couple apart. Instead it was more a constant battle of little things stopping Phoebe from truly giving all of herself to Jake and it was actually refreshing, and realistic, to read a story like this. The problems facing Phoebe and Jake were typical of two people who clearly still had a strong attraction and obvious feelings for each other, but after such a long time apart bring with them a some baggage and past experiences that need to be worked through.

I’m so glad that I’m regularly reading Carly Phillips’ books as it’s a reminder of just what a fabulous author she is. She knows how to deliver my perfect style of romance – sweet, romantic, sexy, steamy and with characters and settings that are authentic and relatable; and Breathe is a fine example of this. Carly’s continued success is well deserved and I cannot wait to read whatever she gives us next (as well as one day trying to get to her back catalogue as well!).
