Jerk of My Dreams #18

Jerk. Asshole. Douchenozzle. Admit it- you hate to love the jerks. That alpha male character who is so arrogant and rude but sexy as hell.

But in the fictional world? Nothing can stand in the way! Everyone would be lying to themselves if they didn’t admit that the meaner the man, the further we run… Towards them! *sigh* 

That’s what this weekly meme is about- those jerky delicious men!

Assets (Balance Sheet #1) by Shannon Dermott


I LOVE a sexy Scottish accent! Kalen Brinner definitely has a sexy Scottish accent! Mmmmmmm……
Bailey Glicks has left her fiancé and run to NYC. She’s starting a new audit with a new team. She’s living with a good friend of hers. She’s starting over.
On New Year’s Eve when she was supposed to be getting married, she’s getting some action at a New Year’s Eve Party, with no-name hot hunky Scottish accent.
Kalen finds Bailey and begins a seduction that is definitely more stalker than anything! But boy is it HOT! The chemistry between Kalen and Bailey burns white hot! Kalen is just flat out HOT! OMG!  His seduction of Bailey is unbelievable.  He surprises her with the most romantic and intimate things, however stalkerish it seemed.
Kalen is a total JERK to Bailey at times. He makes demands of her and is not the most trusting of people toward Bailey. He would send her off without a word and then show up in her apartment later at night, MUCH later, to seduce her. There was plenty of angry sex in this one!
I really enjoyed the seduction of Bailey. Kalen went all out to get her where he wanted her.  I was a bit disturbed by Bailey’s acceptance of some of the things he did. They were definitely stalker material at times and she let it go without question. While on one hand it’s kind of romantic that he went to so much trouble, on the other hand it would have been very stalkerish if he hadn’t been more honorable.

We’re left with a cliffhanger. Things DO NOT end in a Happily Ever After.  Luckily I don’t have to wait long for Liabilities to come out. It’s slated for publication on July 30!

Review: Birthday Wishes by Braxton Cole

Mari meets Luca on an adult website. She’s still smarting from a divorce and only looking to explore her desires. They create wish lists of their sexual fantasies and agree to work through them together. No strings, no attachments, nothing but pleasure, and Mari anticipates their first meeting with impatience. But through a miscommunication involving a private text message and Mari’s nosy brother, Luca ends up at her 30th birthday party, before their planned rendezvous. Much to her surprise, they seem to connect better than she expected, and in ways she hadn’t expected. He’s strong, commanding, but also gentle and respectful and he makes her ache in ways she never thought possible.

But when Luca later expresses a desire for something more than just casual sex, Mari’s impulse is to run the other way. After all, her failed marriage is evidence that she really shouldn’t go much deeper. Can Luca convince Mari otherwise? Can he help her see that he’s her ultimate birthday wish come true?

Mari was done with dating, after her marriage failed she figures she can live with some no relationship required sex with the guy she meets online.  I can understand where she is coming from, once you get burned you sure as hell don’t want to risk your heart being broken again.  She and Luca have shared their sexual bucket list with each other and plan on scratching off each item together.  Luca, is hotter than Mari ever imagined and when he shows up at her birthday party he begins to fulfill some of those sexual wishes that night. 

Holy shit Luca is hot. He can’t wait to start working on both of their wishes.  When it’s his turn I was like holy hot damn boy is not holding back is he?  Mari, I think, needed someone like Luca to show her the way sex with the right person can be more than just sex or positions, but it can be healing both sexually and emotionally as well. 
Braxton Cole made me think what would be some of my sexual wishes if I were to make a list, to share with my husband of course, or maybe Channing Tatum if he is ever available.  Birthday Wishes is the first book in the series The List and is a great start to what I hope will be a series that I will want to continue to read more of.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Every Rose by Lynetta Halat

What do you do when you realize you were foolish enough to throw away true, unconditional love?
Lorraina Dabney turns her back on her creativity and tumultuous upbringing to embark on a college career that will lead her to law school and to becoming what she values most in life—a controlled, powerful, respected woman. When she stumbles upon her childhood friend’s artwork, she feels inspired to reconnect with him and her former self.  This onslaught of emotion will send Lorraina into a tale-spin to figure out exactly why she abandoned all that she was, all that she could’ve been.
Coming from his own chaotic upbringing, Michael falls quickly and deeply in love with Lorraina at a tender age. Even her rejection can’t stand in the way of his obsession. When she starts to date other boys, however, Michael finally relents, causing him to spiral further into a world filled with violence, drugs, alcohol, and women. Realizing his lifestyle will only lead to his further estrangement from Lorraina, Michael sets about to turn himself around before going to get his girl.
Michael Bang will have Lorraina questioning everything.
Review:
Michael Bang loved Lorraina Dabney since he was fifteen years old.  Lorraina on the other hand did not realize she loved him back till years later. 
The story opens with Lorraina returning to her hometown during a college break.  She runs across a piece of art that she knows can only be the work of Michael.  Something about it awakens memories and emotions in her that she locked away a long time ago.  Finally, she sees the love Michael always had for her and realizes she loves him back.  Now, she’s determined to make things right.
Every Rose is told from Lorraina’s POV.  We get to relive all her memories of Michael with her and make new ones as they meet up again.  They both come from crappy backgrounds.  They both had to make mistakes and gain experiences in life before they could be with each other.  Michael may have loved her from an early age, but that doesn’t mean he deserved her just yet.  He had to get a grasp on his own life and decide on the person he wanted to be.  Likewise, Lorraina had to experience heartache and hurt before she could be open to the kind of love Michael offered.
This story flowed so well and moved along rapidly.  Michael is a reformed bad boy now.  He is sensitive, artistic and so protective and loyal to her; maybe a little too protective at times.  But, overall he’s the perfect guy.  I enjoyed seeing them together as a couple and discover that side of themselves.  But, I have to warn you.  This book packs one heck of an ending I did not see coming.  It ripped my heart to shreds; left a gaping hole in my chest.  I’m still a little in shock as I write this review.  Tread lightly with this one and protect your heart or keep tissues handy when you approach the end.

A teacher by day and an avid reader and closet writer by night, she has always dreamt of penning books that people could connect with and remember; and her first novel, Every Rose, is the perfect catalyst to launch her into the world of publishing. Her love of the English language prompted her to pursue a master’s degree in English from Old Dominion University in Virginia. A self-proclaimed “Coast Girl,” she lives in Mississippi with her adorable husband, two amazing sons, and two loveable dogs. She is currently at work on her second book.
EXCERPT:
Michael shakes his head and grins at me. I fight the sudden urge to run my hands through that silky midnight hair of his. “Always so quick to label and categorize.  I guess that’s what will make you an excellent attorney. Assess. Label. Categorize. Add up the W’s. ” He leans in a little and whispers, “How about we just go with the flow? See where it leads us. Label later?” He raises his brows, offering my type-A dominant personality a direct challenge.
Caution to the wind, very atypical for me, I reply, “OK. I’m up for it.” Challenge accepted. “You?” Challenge returned.
“You bet, Lorraina,” he rasps softly.
He leans into my door and places his hands on top of mine. I’m suddenly quite anxious and ever so grateful for the door between us. My hands get clammy and my heart races. Blood races and pounds in my ears, making me feel very much awake now. One hand moves up to brush my hair from my forehead and moves down feather light until his knuckles brush across my cheekbone and lips. He pulls his thumb slowly across my lips. It’s excruciating. It’s exquisite.
Both of his hands come forward to frame my face gently, and he pulls me in for a kiss. A too quick kiss. It’s over before I realize it’s even begun. He gives me a half smile and turns and walks away.
“Michael!” My voice barely sounds human. More animal in nature. It’s raw with ache.
He turns and takes two long strides back to me. This time when he grasps my head it’s anything but gentle. He pulls my lip in and nudges my lips open with his. All rational thought escapes me. I mirror his grasp and enjoy the fullness I feel with him in my mouth. I give as good as I get. This kiss is nothing like our two before. I savor it.
When he turns to walk away, I release a long pent up breath. If he would’ve looked back, he would’ve seen that I was the one on my knees now.

Review: Strictly Business by Lisa Eugene

Strictly Business by Lisa Eugene is anything BUT Strictly Business!
Nina Henley has dedicated her life to her profession. She’s an ER doctor and damn good one. She up for promotion, she’s dedicated and she cares.
Then she meets Wade Connolly, a medical malpractice lawyer. He comes to the ER one night, needing medical care. There, he meets Nina. Things happen in the ER room that rivals Grey’s Anatomy!
Wade is investigating a case and before he knows it, Nina is involved. He’s attracted to her and he wants to protect her. Nina thinks he’s a womanizer who’s just using him.
I really liked this story. We had some suspense and a bit of mystery. The passion and attraction between Wade and Nina were hot. Nina and Wade are both lovable and come across as real people, not just story book characters. There was some doubt on the part of Nina, justifiably so, but it didn’t overpower the rest of the story.
I do wish we had gotten more of Wade’s inner workings. We got enough to know him but I would have liked a bit more from his standpoint.
At one point in the story I started to think the mystery of the case had been dropped off. Nothing was said about the case for a while, but we did eventually come back around to it. I was surprised at the outcome of the mystery. That was not one I was expecting.

Lisa Eugene is a new author to me, but I will be checking out her next boo Steal My Heart. This time around we have an OR nurse and an Ex-Navy SEAL. We all know I love a man in (or out of) uniform!

Would you give up your ancestral home?
Would you be willing to kidnap someone?

Jed sneaks into the Barkeley estate to try to talk some sense into Merriman Barkeley. Instead he gets Barkeley’s niece, Rae. Uncle Merri deeded the house Rae after he backed out of a real-estate deal with Jed and the company he works for.
Now Jed’s job is on the line and they go toe to toe. So, how does Rae decide to fight? She kidnaps Jed. Once she realizes what a terrible mistake she’s made, she releases him. But Jed has other ideas. He decides to stay kidnapped.
Over the next couple of weeks, Jed and Rae slowly fall in love. The only question is, will they be able to get past the sale of the Barkeley estate?

Cover Reveal: Breaking the Rules by H.B. Heinzer


Growing up in small town Wisconsin, Carly Turner couldn’t wait to escape when she graduated high school. Now, she’s living the life in New York City, even if she isn’t seeing her name in lights like she used to dream about at night. She’s living paycheck-to-paycheck, working behind the scenes in small theaters off Broadway. When there’s an equipment malfunction the week before opening night, Carly makes a call that winds up changing everything.

Life in the city isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. While she feels like she’s getting closer to making the move from behind the scenes to center stage, she misses being surrounded by people who understand the quirks that come from living in a town of five thousand people. That, and the fact that he’s sexy as sin, make Adam everything she feels like she’s missing.

The only problem? He’s her best friend’s kid brother…

Adam Sanders wants to settle down, find a good woman and start a family like he sees so many of his friends doing. But how is he supposed to meet Ms. Right when he’s constantly on the road for work? When he’s sent to New York to handle a repair that would typically be contracted out as a favor to his boss, he’s just about to his breaking point.

Everything changes when the stagehand sent to open the theater for him is none other than his big sister’s childhood friend. The same girl he lusted after as a teenager. Could this be fate’s way of showing him that he was looking in the wrong place for love?

As Adam and Carly’s friendship develops, lines will be crossed and rules will be broken. Will they be able to come out the other side without destroying everything they had back in Brooklyn?

Author Bio:
With the exception of three years spent in the middle of Nebraska, H.B. Heinzer has called southern Wisconsin home. During that time in Nebraska, she imagined one of her favorite authors living on the far western edge of the county, just south of the highway. At the time, becoming a novelist was a distant dream for her. Now, she is the author living in that location. Ironically, she later found out that same favorite author lives just outside the town HB lived in for the first eighteen years of her life.
Now, HB lives in the middle of nowhere but still close enough to the city to not feel isolated. It’s the perfect place to let her two kids run and explore their huge yard, teach them about the food chain as they prepare their first-ever garden and debate building a chicken coop. It’s one of those dreams that is only possible thanks to the amazing opportunities that have come through writing.

Review: Take a Chance on Love by Christi Williams

Take a chance on love.
It seems so simple. Just open up and let the warm and fuzzies take over. But it’s not that simple. There’s fear, rejection, difference of opinion. It’s all so risky.
Chancie de Leur is a single mother running her own business. It’s been two years since her husband died and she’s feeling a bit lonely.
Micah Taylor is a Wyoming State Trooper. He shows up at Chancie’s business to complete his routing drug testing.
There’s an instant attraction. Micah and Chancie end up going out for dinner after Micah’s shift ends. The attraction grows bolder.
When Chancie finally tells her ten year old son, Jamie, about Micah, he’s horrified his mother would consider dating anyone, much less a COP! Jamie’s behavior continues on a downward spiral.
When Micah and Jamie finally meet the hostilities and tension between them are at war-zone level! Micah does everything he can to win over Jamie. Nothing works. Micah realizes that no matter how much he cares about Chancie, he can’t be with her if Jamie continues the war tactics. Their relationship would never work. What’s a girl to do?
I loved this story from the very beginning. There were no earth shattering revelations (although Chancie’s marriage was unconventional, to say the least!), no kidnappings, no exes to come barreling in causing problems. It’s just the story about a boy (man) and a girl (woman). The story of how two people, both burned in the past, are willing to take a chance on love when the right person crosses their path.
I loved that Chancie and Micah are ordinary people with ordinary jobs. I love that they’re not fresh faced new adults (although I do love those stories). It was nice to have a real-life love story.
Chancie and Micah were so neat. While neither one is in the fresh bloom of adulthood they did act like teenagers. Necking in the car, sneaking around, getting busted (not by parents, but by the ten-year old son!). I think I laughed so hard when they got busted by Jamie when they were necking in the kitchen. I giggled and giggled when that happened. I know exactly how they felt!

This is author Christi Williams debut novel. She did an amazing job giving us a real-life love story full of passion, romance and the perfect man. We should all be so lucky to find our very own Micah!

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Selling Scarlett by Ella James

Elizabeth DeVille doesn’t belong at a party like this—one where the gowns cost more than her Camry and cigars run higher than her grad school utility bills. Dragged out of seclusion by her best friend Suri, Elizabeth is merely playing dress-up, rubbing elbows with a crowd that banished her troubled family years ago.

Hunter West is tired. Tired of parties, tired of pretending, and tired of trying to right a wrong that haunts him every day. Bourbon heir and professional poker player by day, by night Hunter is gambling with his life in a high-stakes game of crime and blackmail.

When Elizabeth stumbles into Hunter’s den of vices, she’s a light in the darkness, a flame in the void. And, just like everything he touches, Hunter mars her in a record time. To rectify the damage done, Elizabeth needs money she doesn’t have, and she’s come up with a foolproof way to get it.

Follow Elizabeth—code-named Scarlett—to the lush Nevada brothel where she’ll auction her virginity and risk the only thing that’s not for sale: her heart. The highest bidder is a familiar face, with wicked hands and the devil’s mouth. And a secret so dark that it could cost her life.

Excerpt:
Hunter’s POV
Her face is blotchy, like she’s been stung by a bunch of bees. I can tell she might cry because her sea blue eyes are glowing brilliantly, and she’s got them wide open, the way girls do when they don’t want tears to spill and smear up their mascara.
Her wavy, dark brown hair is messy, hanging just above her shoulders, and I want to run my fingers through it.
Shit.
I shouldn’t even be here.
I saw the gate open and I threw on my superhero cape. Then I saw the unfamiliar car with the San Francisco plates and found the door to her mother’s home unlocked. I know nobody’s living here. I keep an eye on the place, because I want to buy it soon; its acreage backs against my bird-hunting lodge, which is where I was heading when I made this detour.
Batman or not, I’ve screwed up. I shouldn’t be in Libby DeVille’s childhood home, standing in this massive, outdated kitchen with her, just like I shouldn’t have crept close enough to hear her talking on the phone with her father.
I tell myself that I should turn and go—after all, Priscilla’s waiting for me at the lodge—but my feet have other plans. I take a small step closer, my eyes never leaving hers, even as she looks me over, Lakers cap to boots.
“Asshole father?” In the tomb-like silence of the house, I’m surprised at how deep my voice is.
I can see her shoulders rise and fall; she’s trying to control herself. Judging by the bit I heard, it makes sense that she would be worked up. If his reputation is anything to go on, Benjamin DeVille didn’t do much for his wife or daughter when he was with them, and does even less now that he’s left town.
Libby quickly smooths the pained look from her face and crosses her arms. “How much did you hear?” she asks me with a wary wince.
“Enough to know you’re probably not the one in need of therapy.”
She squeezes her eyes shut, running a hand through that silky hair. “Wow, well that’s embarrassing.”
If only she could be a fly on the wall at the family home in NOLA back when I lived there with Dad, Rita, and my half-sister, Amber. This wouldn’t even register on our drama-meter. I want to tell her that, but I’ve got no clue how. Besides, the best way to keep a secret—that Rita is not my real mother, for instance—is to avoid mentioning anything to anyone that even comes close to the truth.
Libby chews her succulent lower lip, and it’s my turn to stare her down. I’ve only seen her once, from a distance, since the night of the party, and I’m surprised by how much weight she’s lost. I wonder if it’s intentional, or if she’s stressed, and I’m surprised to find I actually kind of give a damn.
She plays with the ends of her hair, and I let my gaze linger, from her low-cut royal blue sweater down her loose jeans to her suede shoes—some kind of moccasins. She looks cute. Casual. I feel a pleasant tingle just from being near her.
Finally her eyes flick up to mine, like she’s waiting for me to say something. So I do. “What do you need money for?”
Her mouth draws up like she’s sucking on a lemon. I like this face on her. The you-should-be-ashamed-of-yourself face; it’s kind of sexy mistress. To top it off, she arches her eyebrows primly. “That’s not really your business, Hunter West.”
Review:
 
Selling Scarlett delivers mystery, intrigue, mayhem, and chemistry in a neat little bundle.
How far would you go to save a friend?  Would you sell an organ on the black market?  Sell your car?  How about auction off something so priceless and cherished, like your virginity?  That’s the decision Elizabeth DeVille is left with after her long time friend is dumped into the public healthcare system, where he’s left to wither away.  Knowing he can recover if he continued at the swanky place he was before, she comes up with a plan to raise the right funds.
Hunter West is a millionaire playboy.  Haunted by demons in his past, he stays clear of relationships.  Escorts are his preferred go to when he needs to scratch that particular itch.  However, Elizabeth has been on his radar for quite a while.  The feeling is mutual.  Elizabeth is this dream he thinks he’s too tainted to have.  Hunter is the one and only man Elizabeth has ever wanted.  Her upcoming auction forces Hunter’s hand.  But when there are other players in the mix intent on maliciousness can these two really come together and make it work?
I was hooked at the beginning with Hunter’s scene.  He’s side of the story was filled with so much intrigue it really could have been a book on its own.  His POV’s read almost like a crime novel and it played out so beautifully in my mind.
Elizabeth took some warming up to on my part.  I was not feeling her till she makes the plan to head to Vegas to auction off her virginity.  Honestly, after that she grew on me.  I saw a different side of her personality.  She’s strong, determined and protective when it comes to those she cares about. 
I ate up and loved every scene with her and Hunter together.  They bring out something in each other that left me looking forward to and yearning for their next encounter.  They both got served the crap end of the stick when growing up and that’s something they need to overcome. 
I felt the ending was a bit rushed, but Ms. James did a good job wrapping up the storyline.  Overall, this was a pretty good read.

Release Party & Giveawy: Redneck Romeo by Lorelei James Day 7


RR-Release-Party (1)
Lorelei James is celebrating the release of REDNECK ROMEO with a SEVEN day party.  SEVEN great giveaways, SEVEN different posts.
The Future of the ROUGH RIDERS
Slick from Guilty Pleasures:  Since I just finished reading Redneck Romeo about the last McKay man standing, Dalton, I have to ask who will be the focus of book 16 and is that truly the end?  Because I have to tell you having Ky driving and into girls is going to open up a whole can of worms about when the kid’s stories are going to be told. 
No fun, I know, but no comment on Rough Riders book 16 yet…I’ll clue you all in a bit further down the road. I get a bajillion questions about why I’m ending the Rough Riders series at book 16. And yes, I could probably write a second generation of McKays (Love Love Love my readers but you guys are driving me insane with the “When will you write Boone and Sierra’s book?! Crazy rabid fans, I keep threatening that if you keep nagging me it’ll be…never — ha ha, yet I’d never do that because I want to know what happens too!) but I’ve always considered this series a western saga that DOES have an end. I’ve been fortunate that I’ve been allowed to write the books how I want, at the pace I want, with the subject matter I want–all with 100% publisher support. That is rare. Since the books have such a great following, there is that mindset to continue to “cash in” on the popularity of the series and characters. But I won’t do that because at what point do the new books just become a rehash of the older books? I’d much rather end the series on a high note, at the height of popularity than wait until the series might be considered “tired” and I start to lose readers. Plus, I have lots of ideas, situations, characters and areas to explore in other fictional worlds. I hope readers come along for the ride.
