Chaos and Control by Season Vining


I found Preston to be the sweetest man, "Preston looks down at me and back to the road. “I imagine I’d give you just about anything you wanted, Wren Hart.” Wren is a very hands on woman, “Pretty chest, pretty abs, pretty little happy trail.” I scrape my nails through the bit of hair that disappears into his jeans." I liked this book, I loved Preston and Wren.

Rocco by Sarah Castille




Rocco doesn't mind when his girl gives her opiniom at times, “I like the bossiness when we’re having sexy times,” she said softly, looking up to trace the outline of his jaw with her finger. “It turns me on. But the bossiness outside the bedroom . . . not so much.” I loved Grace the girl was just so spunky, “that’s a bit better for the story.” She reached up to touch his face. “I might skip out all the shooting parts and get straight to the good stuff.” I loved this book, I couldn't get over how feisty Grace was.

RELEASE BLITZ: Doggie Style by Piper Rayne

 
Title: Doggie Style
Series: Dirty Truths #2
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 20, 2017


Rumors never bothered me. If people want to guess at my sexuality because I design dog clothes for a living—let them. I know the truth. I’m a red-blooded heterosexual male and just because I don’t have my tongue hanging out of my mouth around every female like my dog Cooper, doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the female form. Now with Teegan Lowery in my life I’m suddenly panting right next to Cooper, hoping for a taste. I hired her for her stellar PR skills, but she’s slowly weaseling her way into a spot I’ve kept a NO VACANCY sign on for years. Everything about Teegan screams unavailable. The last thing I need is another dramatic, high maintenance woman in my life. Believe me, been there and done that. But the sexual tension between us is like a game of tug-of-war and neither of us wants to lose. I love dogs. She hates them. Turns out, we both love doggie style.

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two established authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?
We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon holed into a specific outline. We wanted to give readers a story without them assuming how the story will flow. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it.
What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We're both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We're both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.


REVIEW:
A girl sometimes just has to resist temotation, “let’s go.” He picks me up and again and I dangle over his shoulder, his *** in my face. It’s a really nice *** and though my hands twitch with the urge to grab it, I resist." Leo is always up for making a deal with his woman, “that’ll make us even then. You break my ***k and I’ll teach you how to enjoy the moment.” I loved this book, Teegan was a stubborn woman and Leo was the man to reason with her.

Brock is one confident man, “a really hot kiss?” He cocked his head. “One you’re going to beg for more of?” Brock is not shy, “you’re embarrassed you give great head?” He was surprised." I liked this book, Brock was like the sweetest, caring man.

Brock Lassiter has it all: good looks, good health, and the best job in the world. As a defenseman for the Las Vegas Sidewinders hockey team, he’s the luckiest bastard on earth. If only he could stop getting in trouble. One more screw-up and the team won’t renew his contract. He needs to clean up his act, but he's not interested in a ball and chain—even if it comes in the form of the woman he’s been fantasizing about for years. Hollywood starlet Ashleigh Hunter is living the dream with a role on one of the hottest shows on television. Her life would be complete if only she could adopt the sweet orphan girl she’s fallen in love with, but a single 25-year-old woman who spends the majority of her time in the spotlight may not be able to get custody. When Brock and Ashleigh find themselves accidentally married, they balk. There’s no denying the chemistry between them, but a marriage of convenience? Who does that anymore? Apparently, they do—and it’s not what either of them are expecting. **Brock is a STANDALONE hockey romance, part of the Sidewinders Series*
  BROCK_AvailableNow2.jpg About the Author: Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast. Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach. Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles. As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance… Connect with Kat: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/authorkatmizera/ Amazon: http://amzn.to/2lzRBG6 Twitter: https://twitter.com/AuthorKatMiz Bookbub: http://bit.ly/2li6zRe Website: http://www.katmizera.com





BLOG TOUR REVIEW: Bad At Love by Karina Halle

SBPRBanner-BadAtLove-BT.jpg

Bad at Love by Karina Halle Release Date: November 16th

Bad at Love, an all-new contemporary STANDALONE by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is LIVE!!!

Bad-at-Love-print-FOR-WEB
She's bad at love, but he's even worse...
Marina is hot, blonde, and wickedly smart, but when it comes to men? She's hopeless. Between her quirks and her lack of filter, there isn't a man in Los Angeles that will stick around after the third date.
Her handsome, charming friend Lazarus has the opposite problem. Everyone wants to be his girlfriend, but he gets bored and moves on quickly.
There's only one way to figure out why neither of them has cracked this love thing-- they'll date each other. On paper, it's the perfect experiment. But in reality, things between Marina and Laz get complicated quickly.
They might be bad at love, but they are even worse at being friends.
 

Excerpt:

  The place is called Tanner Smiths and is one of those trendy bars with a prohibition theme. It’s packed and dark and there’s a small dancefloor by the door so that when you walk in, you’re sucked into a group of people grooving all up in your space. Beyonce blares from the female DJ in the corner and everyone is drunk and happy. “I approve of the vibe,” I say to Laz. “What?” he yells back mockingly over the noise, cupping his ear. Then he leans in, close. Very close. “What you havin’ to drink, sweet girl?” His breath is hot on my ear and I momentarily close my eyes, letting the feeling sink along my skin, down my back, all the way to my toes. “Anything,” I manage to say. I open my eyes and his face is still at my neck, lips at my ear. “I had no idea you were so easy to please,” he murmurs and I swear his lips are grazing my skin. Goosebumps spread and I’m hot and cold all at once. My throat feels thick as I speak. “Only when it comes to drinks. Anything else, you might have to work at it.” “Is that so?” he says, pulling back enough to look me in the eye. There’s fire inside him. God, how I want to burn. “We’ll have to see, won’t we?” I tell him. His languid gaze drops to my lips, his nostrils flaring with impatience. Fuck, do it, just fucking kiss me. Kiss me. Kiss me. He leans all the way back, gives my hand another squeeze before letting go. “Don’t you dare go anywhere.” “Bossy,” I comment, my stomach summersaulting like crazy. “You have no idea,” he says. Then he winks, a bit of a smile, and heads down to the bar to place the order. I watch him. I watch him and I watch the girls in the bar watching him and I know tonight, tonight he’s mine. I have him. I’ve never felt so alive before, a swarm of electricity underneath my skin, my heart happy, happy, happy with anticipation, knowing what might finally happen between us.

REVIEW:
Laz is a very handsy man, “I could kiss you for days,” he murmurs, his hands sliding down my back to my *** where he grabs hold." Laz is such a dirty boy, “Bet you didn’t know that about me. How much I love to eff and how good I am at it.” Laz loves to speak his mind, “I like it when you get jealous, you know that?”he whispers against my mouth, his words breaking off into a groan. “I like it when I’m on stage and I see you watching me with all that lust in your eyes. I like that I can drag you into this bathroom, we can fight and yell, and then I can eff your brains out. I don’t just like it. I love it.” I liked this book, I loved Laz.

BLOG TOUR REVIEW: Spider by Ilsa Madden-Mills

SBPRBanner-Spider-BT

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills comes a new standalone romance about a flawed hero and the woman he can’t forget.

SPIDER-FINAL-FULL

Spider, a sexy and forbidden new standalone, is available NOW!

Title: Spider Author: Ilsa Madden-Mills Publication Date: November 13th, 2017
From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills comes a new standalone romance about a flawed hero and the woman he can’t forget.
"She crossed my path and changed my whole direction."
He calls himself Spider.
I just knew him as the sinfully gorgeous guy with eyes of fire that fate sat next to me on the airplane.
I didn’t know who he really was…British rock star…my stepbrother.
He kissed me because he thought we’d never see each other again. We would.
Everyone warned me about him.
They told me he was ruthless and cold and screwed up.
They said he’d leave me with a hole in my heart.
Maybe I should have listened.
Maybe I should have built up a fortress to keep him out.
But I crumbled instead.
They say an unbreakable thread connects those who are destined to meet. If that’s true, then the moment he sat next to me, we were bound together forever.
He just had to figure it out before it’s too late…

Excerpt:

How can one human man be so hot?
Spider sits on my toilet, shirtless, while I dab at his swollen eye. I’m doing my best to keep my eyes averted from the ink on his body, the way his tattoos swirl underneath his jeans, the way his chest is carved from stone.
Of course, I’m the stupid person who suggested he remove his shirt so I could see if he has any bruising on his chest. A cracked or broken rib can cause a lot of pain, and I want to be thorough, that’s all—I swear to baby Jesus.
He grinned at my request and whipped it off—which is the reason I’m now a mess.
There’s hardly any room to breathe with him in my small bathroom. I wipe at the spot of blood on his cheek as he watches me stoically, never taking his eyes off me, tracking my every movement.
“This will look worse tomorrow,” I murmur, just to ease the tension. I stand between his spread legs, acutely aware of his fresh scent, his pure magnetism. My hands shake and I have to focus to push an image of me straddling him, both of us naked, out of my head. I want to run my tongue over the tattoo on his neck. I want to bite him like an animal while he—
Good grief, Rose, stop the fantasy!
“You’d make a good nurse,” he says softly, his long black lashes fluttering softly against his chiseled cheekbones.
“Doctor of Psychology,” I correct him.
“Your dream?”
“Yes.” Although right now I’m dreaming of him… “I know that feeling. That’s how music is to me.” His golden-brown eyes watch me as I reach over to the medicine cabinet for more antiseptic and antibacterial cream, my chest perilously close to his face. I swear my nipples are reaching for him.
“Why psychology?”
I nod, pretending like I’m not all discombobulated. “My granny mainly. She loved to read people—literally. She ran a little palm-reading business out of her home before she died. All the old ladies of the neighborhood would come to see her. She’d make them coffee and they’d just…talk. She’d tell them what they needed to hear while I sat on the floor next to her and listened. There wasn’t any magic involved of course.” I laugh. “But…she was incredibly intuitive. She just got people. If someone twitched or looked left or right while they were talking, she’d have a reason for it and she’d tell me all about it after they left.”
“I think I would have loved your granny.” He curls an arm around me, tugging me close until my chest is a hair’s breadth away from his face. I recall our epic kiss on the plane. I feel the pressure of his taut thighs and my breath quickens as desire unfurls inside me.
A hum warms my blood. I want him—desperately.
And it’s entirely foolish.
He’s my stepbrother.
He doesn’t call girls back.
“Why does it seem like I’ve known you forever?” I ask, feeling myself gravitating closer.
He thinks about it, pushing a piece of hair out of my eyes. Cupping my nape, he pulls me in tighter until our noses meet. The back of his hand caresses my cheek and the heat from his touch burns, yet there’s a tautness in the roped muscles of his arms, as if he’s holding himself in check.
“Because I am you,” he says softly. “We’re so much alike, it’s staggering.” He pauses and stares deep into my eyes.
I nod. I can’t think. He’s so close to me, his eyes burning into mine. He closes his eyes and exhales. “I want you, Rose. You’re intoxicating.”
I suck in a sharp breath, our lips inches apart.
Is he going to kiss me? I want him to.
His eyes open after the silence has gone on too long, a smirk forming around his mouth. “You scared of me, Rose?”
Never.
“I’m scared you’ll rip my heart out.”
He stares at the LOST tattoo on his hand. “I probably will.” Spider-AvailableNow-KU.jpg

REVIEW:
Spider is such a ladies man, and knows when to go full on charm, "he brushes his gaze over me, lingering on the bodice of my dress, and I get tingles. “Don’t listen to her. I love the dress.” He grins. “After all, you did wear it for me, right?” Spider likes to toot his own horn at times, “it’s no secret he’s a stand -up mate, plus a stallion in the bedroom.” I liked this book, Spider and Rose went through a lot of ups and downs amd it made them stronger.

REVIEW:
Rhys could be so sweet, “relax,” he whispered, tickling my ear with his warm minty breath. “I would tell you they’re not looking at you, that they’re looking at me, but I know with you in that dress they are definitely looking at you,” I liked this book, Rhys was one controlling man, he needed things a specific way and in walks Mel who flips it upside down, she was so good for him.
