Inkslinger Presents The Thrill of It (No Regrets #1) by Lauren Blakely Blog Tour Stop


Synopsis:

A new adult story of Love. Sex. Addiction. Blackmail. And Power...

Some say love can be an addiction. Others say it's the thing that makes life worth living. Let me tell you everything I know about love...Love isn't patient, love isn't kind. Love is a game, a chase. A thrill. Love is wild and war-like, and every man and woman must fight for themselves. At least that's how it was for me. A high-priced virgin call girl by the time I started college, I was addicted to love and to sex. Even though I've never had either. I controlled love, played it, and held the world in the palm of my hands. Then I fell down from those highs, and I'm being blackmailed for all my mistakes, forced to keep secrets from everyone, except the only guy I don't regret.

Trey...

With all the other women, I knew what they were. They were temporary. They were pills, they were bottles, they took away all the pain, and numbed the awful memories that wore down my ragged, wasted heart. Until I met Harley. She's the only girl I ever missed when she walked away. But now she's back in my life, every day, and there are no guarantees for us, especially since I don't know how to tell her my secrets. What happened to my family. All I know is she's the closest I've ever come to something real, and I want to feel every second of it.

How can you love with no regrets when regret is all you know?

THE THRILL OF IT Goodreads:

My Review

5 of 5 The Thrill Of It

Lauren Blakely has done it again! She has written another winner that will knock you off your feet. She has this amazing ability to hook you right in and keep you there reading until the end where you are screaming at your e-reader because you need and want more!

The Thrill Of It is one roller coaster of a ride. It is told in a dual POV and we get to see Trey's side and Harley's side. I love when I read a book in dual POV because you get each persons in monologue and you get to see the pain or the happiness they are feeling right at that moment and for me I love it as a reader because there are times when I am reading and I am like what is that person thinking.... but Lauren she has rocked the house with this one and I need book two like I need air to breathe.

Harley is a great female lead. She has it all but at the same time what she really wants she does not have until she meets him. Harley is a high priced call girl who is a virgin. Yes folks I said it she is a virgin and she loves her job. She loves the adrenaline rush the excitement and the rush of power she gets when she is with these men. But see Harley has secrets and she is being black mailed by this wench and Harley is trying hard like hell to keep her secrets. Her mother is always harping on her and her childhood sucked so Harley is trying to make a name for herself and move on in life and that is better said then done because her black mailer is determined to take her down.

Trey is sex on legs! Lord he is so dam fine and perfect but underneath all that is a is a guy looking for something or someone to fill a void he has in his heart. He uses sex as a balm to his ragged heart and he is fine with it because he loves sex. Sex is his drug of choice until he meets her.She is his game changer and he wants her but he does not know how to be in a relationship nor is he sure he really wants that until she gets under his skin. Trey lives everyday with secrets and regrets so he is not sure he wants to bring her into his messed up life.

But what do you do when you know in your heart she is the one and he is the one? Well Trey and Harley will have to fight to be together because nothing good is ever easy and these two are about to feel the thrill of it and have to decide whether or not they can jump together or walk away before they get hurt........

IMR Blog Tours Presents Racing to Love: Alex's Destiny (racing to love) by Amy Gregory Blog Tour Stop


Title: Alex’s Destiny (Racing to Love #4)
Author: Amy Gregory
Expected Publish Date: 11-1-13
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Synopsis:

Her destiny was written for her, long before she was ever born. She embraced it, wanting nothing more than to give everything within her back to the sport in which she was considered royalty. Her family’s legacy would live on, revered by all. And she thrived on the long work days she spent teaching at the academy her blood was tied to. Alexandra Sterling needed that dirt track as much as she needed her next breath. 

That same track was the one that drew in a young student years before. Alex had given her heart away the day they met, knowing that he belonged to only her. For years she’d waited, knowing without a single doubt that he’d make her his when the time was right. 

But…she’d never asked Dallas if he felt the same way. 

Her hurt leaves her vulnerable, her days dark and her instincts dulled. After one night of hell, Alex is lost. Her world is crumbling around her, and without her lifeline and best friend beside her anymore, there’s nothing to keep her from sinking with it.

Dallas Hunter is a pro rider on the motocross circuit, following in the footsteps of his father Eli. For Dallas, it’s always been Alex, but he’s kept his feelings locked away out of fear, his love for their family, his biggest obstacle. 

One short and chilling phone call to her puts him on high alert. Knowing something is terribly wrong sends him racing across the country, back home, back to her. But what he finds almost kills him.

Now he’s watching her slip away right before his very eyes. Figuring out how to help Alex before it’s too late, might turn out to be harder than any race he’s ever ridden. And he has to do it with his team and sponsors screaming at him from the other side, trying to pull him back to the world he’s dedicated his entire life to. 

Dallas knows he has to help his best friend, the woman he loves…and do it without tearing his family apart.

My Review

5 of 5 Alex's Destiny

Okay first I have to say that this series is kick a$! I have not read the first three books and when I realized that this was the fourth one I could have kicked myself because it was easy enough to follow along but I felt like I was missing some key elements with certain characters. So I will be reading the next three very soon because there us definitely a back story that I missed.

This is Alex and Dallas story and wow just wow what a story. Alex has loved Dallas her whole life and she knows they are destined to be together but there are a few things that may put a monkey wrench in that and that is first Dallas is 7 years older than Alex and his racing comes first and then his family. So there may just be a little problem with them getting together but Alex is determined to get Dallas and keep him and make him happy.

As time goes on and Alex has her life and Dallas has his she struggles with her feelings for Dallas and when something happens to Alex she gives up all hope that she and Dallas are going to be together. But Dallas knows something is wrong with his best friend and the girl he wants and has always wanted so he travels back across town to see her and what he finds just about kills him and he knows he will do anything to get her and keep her.

Is Dallas to late to save Alex from her pain? What will Dallas's family think about them being together? Will his sponsors and racing have to be put on hold? There is so much going on in this book that tugged at my heart and had me wanting more no needing more. This is an amazing series that is a must read!

When asked ‘when do you have time to write’, Amy Gregory simply laughs. The real answer is, “in bits and pieces”. She and her husband live in Kansas City with their three fantastic kids that keep them running in three very different directions. Because she sits so much, she always carries a notebook with her at all times.

She has an off the wall, snarky, off the cuff sense of humor that often shocks even those who’ve known her for years. And she loves that her children have all been blessed that ability to make others laugh as well. At least she’s grateful most of the time! Her husband often teases her about how she “makes this stuff up” when he’s reading a piece of her work. The answer—“it just comes to me when I’m typing”. Scary thought, huh!

Literati Author Services, Inc. Presents The Weight of Words (The Weight of Words #1) by Georgina Guthrie Blog Tour Stop


Title: The Weight of Words (Weight of Words #1)
Author: Georgina Guthrie
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age Group: New Adult
Publication Date: November 26, 2013
Publisher: Omnific Publishing
Cover by: Micha Stone and Amy Brokaw
Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.

Synopsis:

Aubrey Price is in the final months of her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto. Bright, witty and fiercely independent, Aubrey works part-time for the college Dean and has her sights set on graduating with distinction. When she meets Dean Grant’s son, Daniel, the TA in her senior Shakespearean studies course, a shared love of the Bard’s works and an instant mutual attraction draw Aubrey and Daniel together. Unfortunately, a strict anti-fraternizing policy, made more perilous by a black mark on Daniel’s record, keeps them apart.

Against this academic backdrop, Aubrey and Daniel navigate their way through a steamy courtship, their forbidden romance aided, abetted and sometimes thwarted by a colorful cast of friends, family and classmates.

My Review

5 of 5 The Weight of Words

The Weight of Words is an amazing gem of a read and I am glad Literati Author Services did a blog tour for this book because I am hooked and I need all three books right now to finish the series. I love me some angst books about college students and the TA because listen folks this really does happen in college. I love to read about the ups and downs they face and how it all plays out. This story is so different though because there is so much against them that even though they like each other and it is clear at first to them they try their hardest to stay away from each other.

Aubrey has so much going for her. She is enjoying her college studies and her friends and she LOVES her job for Dean Grant. While working at her job for the Dean she meets his son Daniel who is a TA for her Shakespearean class. As Aubrey and Daniel get close as friends they share a mutual attraction to one another and they try and fight it. First there is that pesky rule of no fraternizing with the staff and then there is the pesky thing called a past and Daniel has one and he does not want Aubrey to find out.

As they navigate through their friendship that turns into a relationship they have to keep it a secret and when something happens to jeopardize their relationship Daniel will fight like hell to keep Aubrey. They know that this is wrong and against the rules but they just can't stay away from each other and the love they have for one another will be tried and tested and only at the end of the day when the dust has settled will you see whether or not Aubrey and Daniel will stay together or will his past tear them apart? This is a MUST MUST MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Goodreads:

My Review

5 of 5 Death is but a Dream

HOLY EFFING HADES......................

Okay now that I have gotten hat out of the way I have to say that this book is on my top 2013 book list! I love me some mythology books but I love it when an author can incorporate mythology into their own story line and make it their own. So lordy lordy I love Hades lord of the underworld. He can rock my socks off any day anytime I will go down to the bowels of hell and rule with him by his side.

Callie knows death isn't something to be messed with. She knows it is not about angels and demons but something else. So when she dies after being hit by a bus she expects something but she is not sure what it is but what she gets is something out of the ordinary. What she gets is Hades Lord of the underworld giving her a way out of death.

See Hades wants to know who is trying to kill his son. He is ready to do whatever it takes to hunt down the person or persons or Gods or goddesses that are trying to take out his son. So he makes a deal with Callie. All she has to do is find out who is trying to hurt his son. Sounds easy really right but it isn't because something is out there and they want what they want and they want Hades son dead end of story.

See the price for winning is life but the price for losing is way to steep because if she loses she loses her soul and the world will be destroyed! Holy Hades what will happen?

Good Choice Reading Blog Tours Presents Welcome to Sugartown (Sugartown #1) by Carmen Jenner Blog Tour Stop


Title: Welcome to Sugartown
Author: Carmen Jenner
Genre: Contemporary New Adult
Release Date: November 3, 2013

Synopsis:

Ana Belle never wanted anything more than to hang up her apron, jump on her Vespa and ride off into the sunset, leaving Sugartown in the dust.

Elijah Cade never wanted anything more than a hot meal, a side of hot arse and a soft place to lay his head at night where he could forget about his past.

But you know what they say about wanting: you always want what you can’t have.

Nineteen year-old virgin Ana is about to discover that’s not quite true because a six foot three, hotter than hell, tattooed, Aussie sex god just rode into town. He’s had a taste of her pie and he wants more– no really, Ana bakes pies for a living, get your mind out of the gutter.

She’d be willing to hand over everything tied up in a big red bow, there’s just one problem; Elijah has secrets dirtier than last week’s underwear. Secrets that won’t just break Ana’s heart, but put her life at risk, too. When those secrets come to light, their relationship is pushed to breaking point.

Add to that a psychotic nympho best friend, an overbearing father, a cuter than humanly possible kid brother, a wanton womanizing cousin, the ex from hell and more pies than you could poke a ... err ... stick ... at.

And you thought small towns were boring.


My Review

5 of 5 Sugartown

Lordy Lordy Lordy hot as hell biker and little miss innocent holy eff! I love this book and I need the second one right now. I have to say this book had me on the edge of my seat wanting no needing to read on to see what would happen. Lord have mercy me when I tell you I was like what in the name of all that is holy is going on.......

Ana Belle is what I like to call an innocent. She is still a virgin living in her small podunk town looking to escape. But instead she settles for taking care of her brother and making pies. She has this innocence to her and she is just living her small town life when in rides in a sexy as sin guy on his bike. He is tattooed from head to toe and she is fascinated by him. Ana has never ever wanted someone like she wants this stranger and she has to find out more about him.

Elijah Cade needs a change in his life. He has some secrets he wants to keep buried and he has decided he wants to start a new life so he moves and ends up in podunk Sugartown. It is there that he is trying to get a job as a mechanic that he meets Ana. The young girl catches his eye and he has to know her. He has to find out who she is and make her his. Only Elijah is hesitant at first because he has a past and he does not want his past coming to haunt or ruin his future.

Can Ana and Elijah be together or will nosy friends and past relationships haunt them and destroy what they are trying to build up? This is such a HOT HOT HOT start to a series that I need more of like ASAP! Elijah Cade you have stolen my heart!

While Sugartown may not technically exist, Carmen grew up in a small Australian town just like it, and just like her characters, she always longed for something more. They didn't have an Elijah Cade, though. If they did, you can be sure she would have never left.

About the Author:

Erika Wilde (aka Janelle Denison) is the USA Today bestselling author of over 50 contemporary romances for multiple print publishers.

So, why the new pen name? 

As Janelle Denison I’ve always written sexy books, but lately my writing has taken on more erotic elements that I wanted to keep separate for readers because not everyone likes their reading material on the spicier, kinkier side of romance. However, please be assured that even as Erika Wilde, you will still get an emotionally layered story with characters you’ll care about and fall in love with. That is always my goal, whether I’m writing straight contemporary romances, or more erotically charged stories.

Currently, I’m working on The Marriage Diaries and making sure that Dean and Jillian enjoy exploring the more erotic side to their marriage. The series will be on-going, with no foreseeable ending as of right now, for as long as readers want to be voyeurs to Dean and Jillian’s sizzling new relationship.

I’m also planning a spin-off series in the future, featuring the hot military men that work security for Dean at Noble and Associates. My next book, THE INVITATION, will introduce the men of that new series, THE PLAYERS CLUB.

Xpresso After Dark Presents Sugar Babies by Mickey J. Corrigan Blog Tour Stop


Sugar Babies by Mickey J. Corrigan
Publication date: November 4th 2013
Genres: Adult, Romance, Thriller

Synopsis:

A sugar daddy can make your money woes disappear overnight. But for sugar babies, life is like a chocolate covered time bomb: sweet on the outside, deadly on the inside.

Young, beautiful, and hungry, Maire, Esme and Niki want what every woman wants: love, work, safe shelter, the bills paid off, a diamond-studded Rolex, and a two-bedroom condo with an ocean view. Working as sugar babies seems to be the only way to make this happen. But the sugar life is more dangerous than they thought.

Maire O’Rourke is too hot to handle herself properly. She tends to wear too tight clothes and too much make-up, but she’s got more than sex on her mind. She’s already landed one of the richest sugar daddies in Coconut City, a tropical paradise boasting more lonely men per multimillion dollar estate than just about anywhere else.

Sweet Esme Grant is a buxom blonde with a rough and tumble lover she’s left behind somewhere in hill country. She’s come to Coconut City in order to find herself a sugar daddy, a rich older man willing to fund her, along with her hometown boyfriend and their Mayberry-gone-bad dreams.

Niki Stephanopoulos, a dark, iconoclastic artist enrolled in a teaching certification program at Coconut College, struggles with depression fueled by guilt. She is embarrassed by her dependence on her family for the money she needs to survive. But she feels even worse after sleeping with her sexy, much older landlord when she’s short the rent.

Welcome to the secret lives of sugar babies. On the first day of the month, Maire, Esme and Niki struggle with overdue bills and sexy beaus. Readers can join them as they figure out ways to pay the rent, make decent love to indecent men, and stay upright on the rough road to happiness. Sugar Babies is a modern-day romance, a blue martini with a nasty twist. An intoxicating mystery steeped in social satire, the story of Esme, Niki and Maire is an all-American morality tale.

Three beautiful young women: place your order now.

My Review

5 of 5 Sugar Babies

Sugar Babies is a great read for all those who love a good story with lots of drama and angst. The cover fits the description of the book to a T. This is a unique story about three girls who want a better life than they have and are willing to do whatever it takes to get that money and life style. I personally know a few sugar babies and I have to say the book got it right about their life style and their behaviors. So much so I found myself cracking up like a hyena.

We get to meet three girls who want the same thing out of life. They want things and they want to be taken care of by someone else. Marie, Niki, and Esme. Marie is the brains of the operations because she starts a website that caters to sugar daddies matching them with sugar babies. She has her own sugar daddy who takes good care of her and she wants for nothing so she starts this website to help out other sugar babies.

Niki is looking for someone to fund her and her boyfriend because they had these dreams but they have no money so she thinks if she has a sugar daddy she can have her cake and eat it to but what she discovers is so much more.

Esme is something else she is spoiled and wants everything no matter how she gets it just as long as she gets it. She is willing to do whatever it takes to have the life she wants.

In the end this is a story about three womens struggles to get what they want and what they are will to sacrifice.

My Review

5 of 5 Mike's Way Back

Mike's Way Back is a great romance that I would recommend to all you romance lovers out there. I started reading this book at work and could not put it down because I needed to know what was going to happen next. I needed to see where the author was going to take the characters. I was not disappointed by the way the story flowed and the ending was one I loved and I need the second book like ASAP!

Detective Mike Sterling walked away from his dream job and his life to start over again.Something happened to him in that life and he wanted nothing more than to walk away and start a new life otherwise he would go crazy. So he packs up and goes back home to Renland Kansas. Once there he starts to feel at ease. Yes he still has nightmares and he still can't get out of his mind what happened but he thinks he is on the right path with starting over new.

Taryn Watts is a talented designer being requested all over the world. She is renowned in her field and loves to travel all over the world. She loves the feel of living her own life and not having to live in the shadow of her father who is a cop and her brothers who are over bearing. So when she gets a request to design a place in Renland Kansas she is excited to be off on another trip. When she gets there she meets Mike. Lord the way he looks and the way he acts has her heart on high alert because there is something there but she has sworn she would never fall for a cop. She stays away from them because she doesn't want another father. But the more time she spends with Mike the closer they get the more she needs him in her life. But she knows Mike is hiding something and she won't make a move until she finds out what it is. Will Mike be able to come clean and keep Taryn or will he walk away.....

ABOUT THE THRILL OF IT:

A new adult story of Love. Sex. Addiction. Blackmail. And Power...

Some say love can be an addiction. Others say it's the thing that makes life worth living. Let me tell you everything I know about love...Love isn't patient, love isn't kind. Love is a game, a chase. A thrill. Love is wild and war-like, and every man and woman must fight for themselves. At least that's how it was for me. A high-priced virgin call girl by the time I started college, I was addicted to love and to sex. Even though I've never had either. I controlled love, played it, and held the world in the palm of my hands. Then I fell down from those highs, and I'm being blackmailed for all my mistakes, forced to keep secrets from everyone, except the only guy I don't regret.

Trey...

With all the other women, I knew what they were. They were temporary. They were pills, they were bottles, they took away all the pain, and numbed the awful memories that wore down my ragged, wasted heart. Until I met Harley. She's the only girl I ever missed when she walked away. But now she's back in my life, every day, and there are no guarantees for us, especially since I don't know how to tell her my secrets. What happened to my family. All I know is she's the closest I've ever come to something real, and I want to feel every second of it.

How can you love with no regrets when regret is all you know?

Cover Reveal for SC Ellington's Debut Novel Unsettled: A Novel

Title: Unsettled: A Novel 
Author: SC Ellington
Release Date: 10th December 2013
Genre: Adult Romance

Synopsis

After a horrific breakup with her long time boyfriend, Brooklyn Caldwell is completely disenchanted with the notion of mingling with the opposite sex. Damon Williams had been everything she thought she wanted…until he wasn’t.

In an attempt to escape her heartbreaking past, Brooklyn seeks refuge in bustling Washington DC where she folds into the fast paced society unnoticed…until she meets a young entrepreneur, Logan Colton.

Brooklyn is surprised to find that while she has been successful in keeping the opposite sex at bay, somehow she is defenseless against Logan’s confidence and charm—and it doesn’t hurt that he is absurdly beautiful. While thrilled with Logan’s candor, Brooklyn hesitates, as she can’t seem to move past the heartache that she suffered at the hands of Damon.

As much as Logan didn’t plan on pursuing her, he is drawn to Brooklyn’s muted beauty and her witty persona. For all his success, Logan is ensnared in the coveted world of unequivocal wealth and power, but behind closed doors is taunted by demons and an undeniable need to atone for a monumental mistake.

As the two embark on a tumultuous obstacle course saturated with unknown twists and turns, Brooklyn is left to question whether she can endure the journey ahead.


Excerpt

"I couldn’t breathe. I saw her below me. I couldn’t make out her face, but I knew she was someone close. Something was wrapped around her ankles, I thrust myself deeper into the darkness. The salty red water was all around me. Claps of thunder rang in my ears, but I plunged further into the bottomless abyss. Intense fear gripped my heart valve so tightly I thought it would burst, but I knew she needed me."

Tease by Missy Johnson Available Now



Male escort.

That got your attention. 

Some of the most powerful and well known women in the country pay to have sex with me, some of them married. Some are into more than just straight sex, which is why they call me. Bondage, power play, submission…nothing is off the table. I will do anything for the right price. 

The stories I could tell you about a certain high profile congresswoman, or that innocent blonde actress. Trust me, she’s not so innocent.

Guys would kill for my job. I’m living the fucking dream. Meaningless sex, no relationship hang-ups and I’m rolling in the dough. Life is perfect, just the way it is.

Until I meet her.

She changes everything.

She makes me want more than I’ve ever wanted for myself and she believes in me. But she also thinks I sell insurance. I can’t stop what I do, but I can’t give her up. 

Eventually, my two worlds are going to collide and when they do, shit will hit the fan.



Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she's a cat, a cat who thinks he's a dog...you get the picture). 

When she's not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.
