Blog Tour: Racing The Sun By Karina Halle


From the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of Where Sea Meets Sky comes a new adult novel about a young woman who becomes a nanny in Capri and falls for her charges’ bad-boy brother.

When I’m traveling, I feel like the secret to my life, to myself, to really becoming, is one step ahead. It’s in the next destination, the next town I get lost in, the next stranger I talk to. It’s always next but never here . . . 
After six months of backpacking and soul-searching across the world, Amber MacLean is flat broke. There are worse places for a twentysomething to be stuck than the Amalfi Coast, but the only way she can earn enough money for a plane ticket home to California is to teach English to two of the brattiest children she has ever met.
It doesn’t help that the children are under the care of their brooding older brother, ex-motorcycle racer Desiderio Larosa. Darkly handsome and oh-so-mysterious, the young master of the crumbling villa tests Amber’s patience and will at every turn—not to mention her hormones.
When her position turns into a full-time nanny gig, Amber grows dangerously closer to the enigmatic recluse. But can she give up the certainty of home for someone whose closely guarded heart feels a world apart from her own?
I had forgotten how Karina Halle has this amazing ability to completely draw in her readers to the story that she is writing.  You almost feel like you are there in the shadows watching everything take place.  You feel all the emotions: anger, heartbreak, sadness, happiness, horniness.  She just makes you feel.  Racing The Sun is no exception either.  Personally I think this is one of the best books of hers that I have read yet, now before you go throwing stones and screaming what about this book or what about that one, I haven’t read everything she has written yet but everything I have read I have loved. 
I was drawn into Amber and Derio’s storyline and I didn’t want to put it down even for a minute, although sadly I had to because of those spawns, I mean kids that I have.  Remember that feeling of being in the shadows comment I made above, I would have done anything to be able to be there to witness the passion Amber and Derio shared. Hell I just wanted to be in Italy period. 
If you haven’t ever read a book of Ms. Halle’s I highly recommend that you do because she will take you on a journey that will stay with you in your heart for a very long time.

Series Tour: The Blyss Trilogy By J.C. Cliff

Blyss is something the world has been trying to create since the beginning of time, the ultimate aphrodisiac, a drug used against women with one single purpose in mind ….

Julianna Oakley has just finished up her junior year at college and flies home to spend her last free summer with her father on their prestigious Georgia estate. Julianna isn’t the stereotypical rich girl, a spoiled prima-donna. She’s down to earth and has an independent streak a mile wide, insisting she makes her own way in this world.

Nick has been setting the stage for a long time, and sparks fly when their separate worlds collide. She is Nick’s ultimate obsession, and he will stop at nothing to own her.

When Travis, Nick’s right hand man, lays his eyes on the prize, all hell breaks loose. He should know Nick is playing for keeps, and while Julianna is fighting for her freedom, a lifetime full of secrets and twisted perceptions slowly unravel as Julianna gets caught in the fray.


Learning how to survive in her new world, Julianna has no choice but to play “The game of Life.” Except it’s Nick’s game, and his rules apply. Captivity, drugs, and submission are the cards that are dealt, and it’s a losing game. 

Biding her time as she waits for her rescuers, it’s far from smooth sailing, because all too quickly the rules abruptly change as Nick takes matters into his own hands…

As the drama unfolds, and hesitating to interfere, Travis has everything to lose should he decide to step in, including his life.
 It’s opposition at its finest – freedom versus control as Nick and Julianna face the ultimate battle of wills.

While Travis has the uncanny ability to manipulate her with a single touch, Nick struggles to conquer her body, mind, and soul.
It’s every man for themselves as each have their own secret agenda, including Julianna, whose plan is simple: survive.

This is Julianna’s story. She lived a normal life until she was about to turn twenty-one, and then all hell broke loose. Years of diabolical scheming unraveling at the seams, unleashing torrents of lies and deceit. The whirlwind of chaos and heartbreak will forever change the game.

Her chosen fate is one of stellar proportions, and she struggles to keep sane, trying to hold it together every step of the way. As the matrix of her concealed past unfolds to deliver the final blow, rationality and sanity begin to take on a definition and meaning of its own.

Nick thinks he’s the night in shining armor while Travis believes he will be enough to save her from herself, but does she even want to be saved?

Both men want her. Both men love her, and both men want to claim her, keeping her for themselves. But, as usual, Julianna has other plans.

Hidden – Book 2 of
The New Orleans Temptation Series

Excerpt

“I can’t wait another damn minute, Sunny, I need to be inside of you like yesterday.”

“Then what are you waiting for? Jackson, I’m so wet for you.” He lays me over the arm of the sofa with my ass propped up and my back lying across the cushions.

He kneels in front of me pulling my thong down in one slow sultry motion.

“Do you know how beautiful your pussy is, Sunny?”

“As beautiful as your enormous cock?” I reply.

“You and that dirty mouth. It’s going to get you in trouble, do you know that?”

“I sure hope so.” I smirk.

Without another word, he licks me from the bottom entrance up to my clit. His tongue is stiff and wide as it passes smoothly up my slick channel. He slowly rubs circles around my entrance with his fingers as he batters my clit with the same hard motions of his tongue. I feel the tingling of another orgasm building once again in my core. He quickly shoves two fingers inside of me. I see fireworks as he picks up the speed and intensity pushing me over my peak. He waits for my breathing to slow while gently lapping at my pussy.

Release Blitz: Devil In The Detail By Max Henry

Loves comes in all shapes and forms, and sometimes it can be hard to distinguish which one you’re given.

I run from my pain—that’s just what I do. It’s how I’ve managed to keep a handle on the shame and remorse at what I did the day my life changed. Has it changed me for the good, or for the worse—I can never be sure? Some days it’s one and most it’s the other.

Now, each day is getting darker, ever since I met the woman who has the power to ease my ache and got a taste for what could be.

Selfish? Maybe. Foolish? Definitely. But nothing can stop me until I prove to her she needs me just as much as it kills me to wake up one more day without her.


I’ll do whatever it takes—even if I risk my life and my health fighting her psychotic and possessive old man to get her in my bed.

Excerpt


Her brow twitches. “I can’t do this. I’m sorry.” She steps away, heading for the door.

Lunging from the chair, I catch her shoulder and spin her to face me. “Can’t do what? Why are you running?”

“Because being around you makes me feel things, and I know it’s wrong to.”

“Ramona, you need to tell me,” I plead, heart beating erratically. “What kind of ‘things’ are you feeling?” I need to know if they’re the same.

“Like you could be something incredible for me. But . . . ”

God, she’s killing me. “But?”

“It’s not the right time.” She smiles softly.

A beat passes with us staring at one another. I don’t want the moment to end. I don’t want her to walk away. “Do you love him?” My tongue is thick in my mouth.
She shakes her head, smiling, yet her eyes are sad . . . so damn sad. “Not like you think—that’s the problem.”

Virtual Tour: Making A Comeback By Kristina Mathews

With a divorce in the works, Annabelle Jones heads out to Southern California, the land of sun and starting over. She wants to prove to herself and her young daughters that she still has what it takes to turn heads as a swimsuit model—that she doesn’t need a man to take care of her. Until an accident forces her to rely on the hunky, yet mysterious man next door…

Nathan Cooper is trying to revive his own career. Once a top left-handed relief pitcher, he tried to get over a hidden injury with the aid of banned substances. Not only was he caught and suspended, he was traded and missed out on winning the championship. Now he’s a free agent without a contract, and that means life is ready to play ball…

“Hi.” Annabelle stood on his doorstep with a smile and the bottle of healing lotion. “I tried this stuff on my shoulder and it works. It really works.”

“Good. I’m glad.” He was also relieved she wasn’t here for an emergency. “It’s all-natural. Really, not just as an advertising claim. It’s made by a little old lady from—”

“Pasadena?” She interrupted him with a wide grin and a twinkle in her beautiful blue eyes.

“No. Mendocino.” Why did she have to be so great? Funny and sweet and appreciative. Why couldn’t she be more like her ex? A spoiled, rich asshole.

“And have you met this little old lady personally?” She still had a smile on her face. Or most of her face, the left side didn’t quite go up as much as her right, with the giant gash on her face.

He clenched his fists to keep from reaching for her. “Yes. I have. She was at a farmer’s market and she charmed me into buying a whole case of the stuff.”

“Well, I’m glad you did, because it really does help.” Annabelle moved toward him, as if she wanted to come in. Or tell him a secret. “But I can’t reach my back. Would you mind?”

Oh hell.

He stepped back so she could come in. She smelled of lavender and rosemary and eucalyptus and something even sweeter.

A hard rock song blasted from his weight room speakers.

“Let me go turn that off.” He moved down the hallway and she followed.

Annabelle stopped in the doorway of the dining room he’d converted to a home gym and laughed. “Is that me? I don’t remember them doing a poster of that cover.”

“They didn’t. I had it done.” It had been ten years ago and he still hung the framed picture in every place he lived. “A buddy of mine worked at this place that could turn anything into a poster for twenty bucks.”

“Twenty bucks, huh?” She gave him a look that might have been disapproving, if not for the way her eyes crinkled at the corners and her lips twitched trying to hold back a smile. “That’s some pretty expensive artwork.”

“I paid another thirty for the frame.” He stood there feeling every bit the twenty-one-year-old who’d been so obsessed with Annabelle he’d convinced his friend to risk his job in making the poster when he didn’t have the rights to the photo.

“Fifty bucks, huh. Quite an investment.”

“I was young. I wanted to class up my first apartment.” He wondered briefly if she would have been interested in him back then. Would she have even looked twice at an up-and-coming ballplayer who thought he was the next hot prospect?

“I was even younger.” She approached the poster he had hanging over his weight bench. There was something almost wistful in her tone. “I was so young.”

He watched her study herself and wondered what she must be thinking. Probably that he was some kind of stalker and she would be calling her lawyer when she got home.

“So you really do use me.” She laughed, turning around to show an amused grin on her face. “Does that help you add cardio to your workouts?”

“Huh?” He was surprised at how lightly she was taking this.

“You know, getting your heart rate up?” Her gaze drew over him, settling just below his waist. “Among other things.”

While she resigned from teaching with the arrival of her second son, she’s remained an educator in some form. As a volunteer, parent club member or para educator, she finds the most satisfaction working with emergent and developing readers, helping foster confidence and a lifelong love of books.
Kristina lives in Northern California with her husband of more than twenty years, two sons and a black lab. A veteran road tripper, amateur renovator and sports fanatic. She hopes to one day travel all 3,073 miles of Highway 50 from Sacramento, CA to Ocean City, MD, replace her carpet with hardwood floors and serve as a “Ball Dudette” for the San Francisco Giants.


Review Tour: Red Zone By Sherri Hayes

After a case ended badly for Rebecca Carson, she’s losing her mind sitting around her apartment waiting on her superiors to allow her to return to work. Since she was a teenager, the only thing she’d ever wanted was to join the FBI. Now that dream was in danger. 

Gage Daniels has made a pretty good life for himself. A nice house. A career he loves. As a professional football player, he’s used to getting almost everything he’d ever want with just the snap of his fingers. This includes women. A well-timed smile is usually all it takes to attract the opposite sex, especially in Nashville. 

When a stalker threatens Gage, the team owner calls an old friend, Rebecca’s ex-partner Travis Hansen, to help protect his star quarterback and find the person responsible. Hansen offers Rebecca the job, and she jumps at the chance. It’s work, and it will get her out of her apartment. How bad can it be?

Posing as Gage’s girlfriend, however, isn’t as easy as it seems. The man is relentless. Rebecca must work to protect Gage while staving off his advances. She’s there to do a job, nothing more. The last thing she wants is to be another notch on a hotshot athlete’s belt.

As the stalker continues to up the ante, Rebecca finds it harder and harder to keep her distance from Nashville’s star quarterback. He isn’t what she expected in one of the city’s most notorious playboys. Now all she has to do is keep him safe until they can find his stalker, and hope she doesn’t lose her heart in the process.

Red Zone takes the whole stalker and protector angle to a different level, one that I really enjoyed.  Normally it is the men protecting the women from psycho fans, stalkers, abusive exs and such but this time it is the woman who protects the man.  Now don’t start thinking that this guy is weak or anything like that.  That is so not the case, he has a stalker.

Did I mention that he is a quarterback and she is playing the role of his girlfriend?  No?  Oops sorry, actually I ‘m not sorry because I want you to go get this book and read these details for yourself.  Yeah I know kind of makes writing a review sort of not necessary if I tell you each and every detail so that’s why I am not telling everything, just enough to make you intrigued, curious and interested in picking up the book and finding out for yourself why I enjoyed this one as much as I did.  This is the third book I have read from this author and once again I found myself hooked and not wanting it to end.  I think you all will enjoy this one as well, so add it to your TBR piles and find out for yourself all those details I didn’t give.

ARC Review: HIM By Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy

They don’t play for the same team. Or do they?

Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.

Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever.

Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot summer at camp, Jamie has a few things to discover about his old friend…and a big one to learn about himself.

Warning: contains sexual situations, skinnydipping, shenanigans in an SUV and proof that coming out to your family on social media is a dicey proposition.

I love a great hockey book, I love a great M/M book even more, but what I love even more is when the two genres are combined into one.  HIMhad me from the very start, I absolutely loved how we not only got to see Jamie and Ryan’s relationship in the present, but also glimpses at how they were as best friends in the past.  You wanted Jamie and Ryan to not only work through what caused them to drift apart all those years ago but you want these two to be together as a couple; because you can just tell these two are perfect for one another.
Jamie is straight, or is he?  Well he does have a female friend with benefits that I personally wanted to vag punch on more than one occasion.  Why you may ask?  Well it is because I wanted Jamie and Ryan together, even if Jamie didn’t know at first he would be attracted to guys as well, and well she was kind of bordering on pathetic and clingy if you ask me.  Yep he is Bi but once his eyes are opened I don’t see him ever going back to the females.  Ryan is the prankster, the one who you can dare to do just about anything and he would have done it.  He is also the one who I think has the bigger heart of the two, I say this because he is worried that for Jamie it isn’t what it is for him, finally being with the man he has been in love with for years.  I loved not only the chemistry these two shared, but the friendship, the history and the love they had for each other.  And for me that is what will make a relationship stay strong and last, when it is more than just about the sex (oh hush yeah I know I love me some sexy times but I am trying to be serious here people) but about a connection that only grows stronger with time.
The authors did an amazing job in flowing everything so smoothly that you can’t tell that two authors not just one wrote this.  A lot of times you can see the switch up because the styles aren’t the same or their writing style is different but Ms. Bowen and Ms. Kennedy did a beautiful job at writing HIM and making this reviewer fall in love with Jamie and Ryan.  I hope we get to read more of these authors working together in the future because these two ladies are two of my favorites.

Release Blitz: Tattered On My Sleeve By Autumn Jones Lake

*Although this is the fourth book in the Lost Kings MC series, Wrath and Trinity’s story can be read first.



Trinity Hurst.

That girl fucking owned me the minute I laid eyes on her. At twenty-one years old she already had a cold, calculating wall around her. The walls she built up around herself were designed to keep guys like me away. Underneath her tough girl exterior lay something sweet and vulnerable that I very much wanted to explore.

I had her first.

I fell in love with her.

Then we fucked everything up.

Wrath.

His name should have been lust. Pure, soul-shattering lust was the deadly sin I felt when I looked up—way up—into his ocean blue eyes. I should despise bikers. I should most definitely steer clear of this one, with his thick, muscled arms, and low sensual voice. My normally impeccable self-preservation instinct vanished the minute he walked in the door. Like everything else in my life, I fucked it up. And he’s never going to forgive me.

Old Habits Die Hard.

Wrath and Trinity met when the Lost Kings MC was on shaky ground. After three perfect nights together, Wrath knew she was it for him. But Trinty’s dark past was about to catch up to her and the Lost Kings MC was her only hope for protection. One misunderstanding led to a chain of mistakes that pushed them apart for years. When long-buried secrets are finally revealed, Wrath will stop at nothing to break their bad habits and make Trinity understand—she belongs to him. 

Author’s note: There is no actual cheating in Tattered on My Sleeve.

Too many times, at least for me this is, I start a series that I absolutely love from the beginning but slowly start to think that by the fourth or even fifth book that the writing isn’t the same as what I had fallen in love with or I just no longer felt that connection a reader feels when they find an author they really love.  Luckily, Tattered On My Sleevehad all of the things that made me not only fall in love with this series, but the author’s way of completely pulling you into the world she is creating and makes you feel all sorts of emotions.  When I finished this book, it took me a while to not just get my emotions under control, but to also make sure that my heart was still inside my body because honestly I didn’t know if it would survive the way Ms. Lake destroyed it.

I do not want to spoil anything about this and don’t worry if you haven’t read the previous books in the series because this one can be a standalone.  But I am going to take a minute to give you the *why haven’t you read this series yet and make you feel guilty for not experiencing it yet* look.  Yeah you over there, you know the look I am giving you, so just go out and get it already.  Be prepared because you will be on one hell of a ride, one that will leave you tattered and in need of repair.  Honestly I think this is my favorite of the series as of yet!  I can’t wait to see what else Ms. Lake has in store for us in the future.

Excerpt

Besides his job as enforcer for the Lost Kings MC, Wrath owns a gym. One of the ways he tries to reconcile with Trinity is by asking her to help him prepare for a fight. This is from one of the times they’re working together.


My attention is finally drawn to the papers Trinity has in her hands. “What’s that?”

“Oh, it’s nothing. I didn’t realize Jake was already… You asked me to put some stuff together… So never mind.”

She folds the papers in half before I snatch them out of her hands.

“Ow! Thanks for the paper cuts, asshat.”

Jake chuckles and grabs her hands to look them over. I can’t wait to get in the ring with him later and kick his ass while Trinity watches.

I’m impressed with what she printed out. I knew she’d be good at this. She’s got a week’s worth of circuit training exercises broken into different ones on each day. Each circuit includes a balance of strength and endurance exercises. I glare at Jake, and he takes the hint to get lost.

“You’ve done your homework,” I say, handing the papers back to Trin.

The corner of her mouth twitches down in disappointment. “You don’t think it’s any—”

“Is that what I said?” I hate snapping at her, but sometimes it’s the only way to get through her self-doubt.

“No.”

“Where’d you find some of these?”

“Are they too advanced for you?”

I tilt my head and stare at her. “Seriously?” She chuckles. “Good, then call me when you’re going to try the Front Lever. It looks sexy.” She spins away and heads back to the office.
