  About LISTEN TO ME: In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new series, five best friends open a hot new restaurant, but one of them gets much more than she bargained for when a sexy former rock star walks through the doors—and into her heart. Seduction is quickly becoming the hottest new restaurant in Portland, and Addison Wade is proud to claim 1/5 of the credit. She’s determined to make it a success and can’t think of a better way to bring in new customers than live music. But when former rock star Jake Keller swaggers through the doors to apply for the weekend gig, she knows she’s in trouble. Addie instantly recognizes him—his posters were plastered all over her bedroom walls in high school—he’s all bad boy…exactly her type and exactly what she doesn’t need. Jake Keller walked away from the limelight five years ago and yearns to return to what’s always driven him: the music. If he gets to work for a smart-mouthed, funny-as-hell bombshell, all the better. But talking Addie into giving him the job is far easier than persuading her that he wants more than a romp in her bed. Just when she begins to drop her walls, Jake’s past finally catches up with him. Will Addie be torn apart once again or will Jake be able to convince her to drown out her doubts and listen to her heart?   Author Pic - Kristen ProbyAbout Kristen Proby: New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Kristen Proby is the author of the popular With Me in Seattle series.

Release Blitz: Seduce Me by J. Kenner

Perfect for readers of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You, this steamy eBook novella from J. Kenner, bestselling author of Release Me, features powerful billionaire Damien Stark and his wife, Nikki Fairchild, on their impromptu getaway to Las Vegas—and there’s no better place to turn up the heat than in Sin City.

I’ve never felt as close to anyone as I have with Damien Stark. I know every line of his body, every secret within his soul. There’s nothing I crave more than his touch, and with his kiss, he seals his claim.
Las Vegas is the perfect place for us, where we can indulge every desire and fantasy. But when someone from my past resurfaces, I can’t ignore my instinct that I have to make things right.
With Damien by my side, I feel safe no matter the danger. Our passion protects us, drives us, makes us whole. His pleasure is an exquisite game, and one that I’ll play forever.
Seduce Me is intended for mature audiences.

Release Blitz: Addicted To Sin (Sinful Pleasures #1) by Monica James

Tell me your deepest, darkest secrets. I dare you.

Addiction comes down to one simple, primitive concept. Desire.

My name is Dr. Dixon Mathews, and I’m New York’s finest shrink. For $500 an hour, people tell me their darkest, most sinful secrets.

My own addiction? Sex.

I might be certified in solving other people’s problems, but not mine –
I know I’m a lost cause. I don’t do relationships. I don’t even do the same woman twice.

But that’s all about to change, thanks to two entirely different women who awaken my deepest desires.

Who will I choose?

I know who I should choose, but I never said I was the hero of this story, or even the good guy. And besides, who wants to be good, when it feels so good being bad?

My tale isn’t for the faint-hearted. If you’re game, strap yourself in and expect the unexpected. But don’t say I didn’t warn you…

Achingly sexy and highly addictive, the first in the Sinful Pleasures Series will have you hooked. Driven to Sin coming very soon…

Virtual Tour: Truly Sweet By Candis Terry

Candis Terry returns to Sweet, Texas for the last time when former Marine Jake Wilder discovers how truly sweet love can be.

When the one you’ve always wanted

At sixteen, Annabelle Morgan hoped her crush on Jake Wilder was just a passing phase. Now she’s twenty-nine and nothing has changed except Jake. The once-carefree marine has come home with a giant chip on his shoulder. He insists a single mom like Annie deserves more than he can offer. Yet no matter how gruff his gorgeous exterior may be, Jake s toe-curling kisses convince her that this attraction is definitely mutual.

Becomes the one who wants you back

Butting heads with feisty Annie was always a thrill. Add other body parts to the mix, and Jake is in serious trouble. He can’t be a forever-and-family guy and Annie s not a friends-with-benefits kind of woman. But love has a way of changing the best-laid plans, and surrender has never been so tempting.

The outcome is truly sweet.

*Hangs head in shame*  I bet you are wondering why I am doing that aren’t you?  Well you know how I always try to read a series or be caught up prior to reading one for a review?  Well *kicks feet across the ground in a child like manner*, well I hadn’t read any of the books in this series prior to reading Truly Sweet and I am so mad at myself because it appears that I have been missing out on a really good series.  The even sadder thing?  I have the first two books still packed away from my move last year, yep last year and I am still not close to being unpacked.  Enough about my self condemnation and lets get to the book now shall we.
As you all know by now I have a very large soft spot for a military hero especially one that was wounded or suffers from PTSD.  So when I read the blurb for Truly Sweet and saw that Jake was a former Marine I knew that I had to sign up.  I am so glad that I did because this is one that will make you want to take Jake into your arms and help him work through his guilty feelings and demons.  I honestly believe that Annie was the best thing to have happened to him.  Sometimes it isn’t medications, therapy or the bottom of a bottle that helps wounds heal, but the right person even if at first it may not seem like it at first.  Annie was feisty, funny and sweet.  She had a crush on Jake for a long time, since they were kids.  She needed Jake as much as he needed her. 
Honestly this book was a great sweet romance that left me with a very large smile on my face and happiness in my heart.  Truly Sweet is the final book in this series but I can guarantee that I will be going back and reading the previous books before reading this one once more because I have a feeling it will be one I reread a lot in the future.

Excerpt:
While Jake made his way to a booth, he got a two-finger salute from Bill McBride, a Vietnam vet, and a chin lift from Ray Calhoun who were sitting at a table playing a game of checkers. At the big round table in the back, the Digging Divas Garden Club looked up in surprise. Instead of their usual exuberance, most just smiled as though they realized he might need some space. The tear sliding down Arlene Potter’s crinkly cheek could have been from allergies. Or it could have been because, even at her advanced age, Arlene loved a man in uniform. Not that he was wearing one. But that really didn’t matter to Arlene. She had a vivid imagination.
Jake tried to relax. He hadn’t known exactly what he’d be walking into here, but the silent acknowledgements worked just fine for him.
With his favorite booth vacant, he eased over to the middle of the red vinyl seat and stretched out his leg. As he looked out the window at the passersby on their way through their daily routines he took a breath to ease the ache slicing down his thigh. Moments later a menu sailed onto the table in front of him and a cup of ice water landed without a splash.
His head instantly came up.
Blue eyes focused, Annie Morgan stood there, weight balanced on one hip while she tapped the eraser of her pencil against the order pad.
In the past couple of years the Wilder family had expanded with three of his brothers having said the I do’s. Thanks to his brother, Jackson, and her sister, Abby, he and Annie were now related by marriage. Before that they’d been adversaries for as long as Jake could remember. Always outspoken and not a stranger to butting in where she didn’t belong, they’d gone head-to-head on many outlandish subjects. If he said the sky was blue, she’d argue it was turquoise. If he said a steak would take seven minutes to grill, she’d say five. If he said the Rangers would win by a homerun, she’d bet they’d lose with a strike-out. It seemed like the girl just liked to argue. More often than not, he’d rise to the bait. Just as he always did with his brothers. One of these days he’d learn to just sit back and smile.
Today probably wasn’t that day.

She’s experienced life in such diverse ways as working in a Hollywood recording studio to chasing down wayward steers. Only one thing has remained the same: her passion for writing stories about relationships, the push and pull in the search for love, and the security one finds in their own happily ever after.

Release Blitz: Bootycall By J.D. Hawkins

Red carpet. Backstage. VIP all the way, baby.

When you’re the prince of Hollywood, and everyone wants a piece of the action. I’ve got paparazzi stalking my every move, and supermodels lined up to spread their legs for a shot at fame. But this girl is different. She’s been hired by the studio to keep me in line. One wrong move, and my comeback is going up in smoke.

I should keep my distance, but I’ve never played by the rules.
I’m going to show her just how good a bad boy can be.







Once again I am sitting on the fence about a book, I didn’t love it but I didn’t hate it either.  I liked it and while I know that the story will be concluded in the next installment.  It’s not a serial but it was a novella so it was a fairly quick read, I hope that the potential this series has comes to it’s fullest in the second book because if done right this will be a great series.
Bootycall was exactly what the title suggest, it was bootycall that could possibly become more if Dylan and Gemma can work out not only their own issues but the ones surrounding their bootycall.  Their hook up was smoking hot and has me wishing that I had a hot tub of my own after reading one of the hottest scenes I have read in a little while.  The chemistry between Dylan and Gemma is off the charts hot and I can’t wait until these two set fire to whatever surface they are against when they come together again. 
So I am sure you are asking if it was that hot why didn’t you love it?  For me at a certain point it fell flat, the situation at hand was a figurative slap in the face and Gemma was like oh I forgive you.  She started off as this meek shy girl, turned into a siren in a short time, then went into a stick in the mud to serious about everything, to a virtual doormat.  So there that explains why I didn’t love it, I hope that in the next book she stands up for herself and doesn’t allow Dylan to act like that with her.  So I am excited to see what happens.

Release Blitz: Begging For Hale By Marie James

Alexa Warner, an easy going, free spirit, has never had a problem with jumping from one man to the next. She likes to party and have a good time; if the night ends in steamy sex that’s a bonus. She’s always sought pleasure first and never found a man that turned her down; until Garrett Hale. Never in her life was she forced to pursue a man, but his rejection doesn’t sit well with her. Alexa aches for Garrett, his rejection festering in her gut. The yearning for him escalating until she is able to seduce him, taste him.
Garrett Hale, a private man with muted emotions, has no interest in serious relationships. Having his heart ripped out by his first love, he now leaves a trail of one night stands in his wake. Mutually satisfying sex without commitment is his newly adopted lifestyle. Alexa’s constant temptation has his restraint wavering. The aftermath of giving into her would be messy; she is after all the best friend of his cousin’s girlfriend, which guarantees future run-ins, not something that’s supposed to happen with a one night stand. Yet, the allure of having his mouth on her is almost more than he can bear.
With hearts on the line, and ever increasing desire burning through them both, will one night be enough for either of them?
This is the second book in the Hale Series. 
Book 3 in the Hale Series is Josie and Kaleb’s story: Hot as Hale
Recommended for readers 18 and up due to strong language and explicit sexual content

You know when you find a new author and he or she puts out an amazing first book, one that you absolutely devoured and loved; and find out she has another book but you get a little worried because you aren’t sure if it will live up to the hype the previous book had?  Well you don’t have to worry about that when it comes to Begging For Hale because this one is just as hot if not hotter then Coming To Hale and I loved each and every bit of it.  There is angst, there is drama, there is sex, oh holy hell there is some hot sex.
I am keeping this on the shorter side because I want you to check out not just Begging For Hale, but the first book Coming To Hale(which I would say please read ahead of time because it was so damn good).  This is an author that I have a feeling is going to be one we need to keep an eye on, because if this is just the beginning of the talent she has, then Marie James will be here to stay.  Go check this series out, recommend it to your friends if you enjoyed it as much as I did and make sure you have a spare set of panties to change into, trust me you will need them.

Book Tour: Katherine In Gold By J.B. Hartnett

*Warning: this is a love story with sexual situations and copious swearing. It also deals with an inappropriate relationship between an underage girl and a much older man.

When Katherine Symes experiences heartbreak at the age of twenty, she picks herself up, dusts herself off, and declares no man will ever break her again. The independent, potty-mouthed Katherine makes no apologies for how she lives her life. Marriage, babies, and husbands are ideas she’s never even entertained. There is only one thing she’s never had the guts to do.

Open her own cafe.

The day of her best friend’s engagement, a stranger bulldozes his way into her life. Handsome, tall, and annoying as hell, he pushes all her buttons. A mutual acquaintance introduces them, and the stranger, Holst Rutherford, wastes no time in presenting Katherine with half ownership in a coffee shop he wants to open in Laguna Beach; he just doesn’t want to do it alone.

Can she put up with Holst to achieve her lifelong dream?

Holst moved to the coastal town of Laguna Beach with clear intentions: a fresh start, concentrate on his new business, and enjoy the beach at his doorstep. After ending a toxic relationship, he never considered entering a new one. But there is something about the ever-combative Katherine which makes him realize she could be much more than a business partner. She just might be the one.

However, she is going to need a little convincing.

First and foremost, go back up and rea the warning at the top.  Go ahead I will give you a few minutes to scroll back up and read it.  Now, if you read it do you see one of the reasons why I had to sign up and read the book?  Hello copious swearing!  Now by now if you have read my reviews you know me and swear words go hand in hand so after reading that warning did you even have any doubt that I would love Katherine In Gold?
Okay this is going to hopefully be short and sweet and possibly will contain a few swear words in honor of the book.  Katherine In Gold is the second book in the Beachy Bride series and can be read as a standalone, although I loved the first book and think you should check it out.  Katherine In Gold is one of the best books I have read in a while because not only did it make me laugh, and it did a lot, it also had the perfect amount of issues between Katherine and Holst but those issues didn’t become overdone or annoying.  Add to that this is one sexy book and I was in heaven.  Katherine is smart assed, sassy and strong, but she has also been through some things that make you want to hold her tight.  Holst is just yummy sexy I want a Holst of my own goodness.  You will also have a new appreciation for the word “whore”, hell that’s my nickname or well it’s used in a variety of nicknames for me and even I love it more now.
Seriously just go pick up a copy of Katherine In Gold and read it.  While I am not also super critical of everything I read it is hard to get a five star rating from me and Katherine In Gold was a five star read for this book whore.  I can’t wait to read more from this author because I am already hooked on her writing style.

Most people think the term “whore” is either an occupation or an insult, but I used it as a term of affection. I wasn’t even sure how it began, but I often said it to Tori, and when I did, it came from a place of love.

Tori took a sip from her coffee and lifted her eyes from the message. “Dude.”

“Dude,” much like the word “whore” or even “fuck,” also had many meanings and uses. It was all in the way you said it.

Virtual Tour: To Tempt A SEAL By Sara Jane Stone

For the first time in her life, social worker Lucia Lewis is ready to live. And the masquerade ball in Las Vegas is just the place to find a ridiculously hot guy to complete her wicked to-do list. The only rule? Her elegant Venetian mask—which conceals the scars that have always held her back from the life she deserves—stays on.

Navy SEAL Cade Daniels heads to Vegas on a mission to keep his best friend’s little sister out of trouble. Except the woman he’s sent to find is all heat and flame…and perfectly capable of handling herself. And him. But the moment Lucia’s mask slips, the need to heal her, body and soul, is complete and absolute temptation.

But revealing himself could cost him the one thing he isn’t willing to risk…his heart.


To Tempt A SEAL is a quick and sexy read that was the perfect way for me to pass the time on a weekend afternoon.  It is sweet, sexy, funny and left me wishing for a SEAL of my very own.  I liked how that even though Cade knew he was going to get in massive trouble with his best friend he knew that being with Lucia would be worth it; even if it was just for that weekend. He saw the beauty of her before even seeing what was under the mask.  In today’s standards too many people believe that if you aren’t perfect in every way then you aren’t beautiful and I loved reading about a sexy man throwing those thoughts out the door even after seeing Lucia unmasked for the first time.   I kind of really enjoyed the whole Phantom Of The Opera thing going on when it came to the mask, no Lucia isn’t a crazy opera composer, but she wore the mask for a reason; a very sad reason that too many people would judge her for.
Lucia decided that this would be her fantasy weekend, but she didn’t ever dream that a sexy man like Cade would be the one fulfilling them.  She struggles with her insecurities but slowly changes from the caterpillar into the beautiful butterfly and I loved reading it happen.  She wasn’t weak like so many heroines are in books like these, what she was, was someone wounded both physically and emotionally but those wounds began to heal during her weekend with Cade.

To Tempt A SEAL is the first book in the Sin City SEALS series and I am looking forward to reading more from this author.  I am not sure if the rest of the books will focus on Cade’s team mates or someone else but whoever it is I want to read them soon than later.  If you are looking for a sexy read that you can finish easily in an afternoon then grab this one, I think you will like it.
