Jessie knows how to express himself, "the front door slams shut, and Jessie advances. I don’t run, waiting eagerly until he has me in his arms. “I swear to God time needs to slow down. I need you,” he growls into my ear." I liked this book, I fell in love with Jessie and Jules but Whit stole the show that little girl was the heart of the book.

Of course, I’m not going to shake Amanda’s hand.
Instead I grab hold of it, that unmistakable jolt of electricity sparking when our skin connects, just like every other time we’ve touched. I pull her to me and wrap her up in my arms because I can. I’m the one who offered up the tickets so I could…what? Show off? Let her know exactly how great my life is?
I can’t lie. My life is pretty damn great. I have everything I could ever want—except for one thing.
“Hi Jordan,” she breathes against my neck, and I swear she melts into me a little. Like she can’t help herself. Like we somehow still fit together even after all these years.
Either she got smaller or I grew bigger since the last time I touched her, and I’m guessing it’s the latter. She smells familiar, yet different. Better. I recognize the scent of her shampoo, but nothing else. Her hair is longer. Thick. Dark and wavy, up in a ponytail and a little disheveled, like she’s had a long day. Her body is curvier, something teenaged Amanda would’ve never believed could happen. She still has those sexy long legs, though.
Finally, she pulls away from me, her lips curled, her eyes sparkling, nervousness written all over her face, and I watch her carefully in return, my expression as neutral as I can make it. Honestly, I’m still a little pissed over that garbage game we just played, and I’m tense like I usually am after. Her understanding gaze meets mine and I know she knows what I’m feeling. We’ve always been in tune with each other…
She’s my Mandy, all grown up. But not my Mandy anymore.

The Left Side Of Perfect – Release Day – August 30
For better or for worse,'til death do us part . . .
The better captured me; she's who stole my heart.
And made me realize I couldn’t live without this woman.
The worse of her took my breath away--kicked me when I was down and twisted me into a million knots.
When I first met her, I thought she was someone I would never see again.
The second time I ran into her, it was a random coincidence.
I didn’t know it at the time, but she was the girl I was going to marry.
But life isn’t always perfect. You have to take the better and the worse--even if it means giving her up, having her slip between your fingers, and letting her walk away.
I’m getting married.
This is forever, 'til death do us part.REVIEW:
Colby's girl knows what she wants and I think that's a huge turn on for the man, "I want it hard.” * ***, as if I didn’t think I could get anymore stiff, she says something like that." Colby is just always arguing his case, “that is speaking like a human. Twelve hundred hours is the same as twelve o’clock, which is the same as noon.” All I'm saying is thank the Heavens that the second book us being released right off and I can jump right into it.
The Right Side Of Forever – Release Day August 31
In sickness and in health, to love and to cherish . . .
It sounds so simple, to love someone unconditionally.
To give them your heart.
So why is she slowly eating away at my soul with every unanswered phone call, every unread text, and every door left unopened?
She said yes, and yet, in order for her to be with me . . . I need to let her go.AMAZON
Colby isn't afraid to take measures into his own hands, "since you won’t return any of my calls or texts, I figured this was the only way to get you to talk to me.” Colby's girl knows how to put him in his place, "...quickly reaches out and pinches my nipple. Legit gets a finger full and pinches the eff out of the darn thing. “****.” I swat her away and rub my pec. “What the ***l, babe?” I liked this book, it was an emotional ride but I'm glad we got to where the characters needed to be.
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze! Facebook | Follow on Goodreads | Website | Amazon Author Page | Instagram | Follow on BookBub

I liked Holt, the man is hard to impress but Ryder seemed to do that with ease, “Nice one!” I beamed with pride, checking out Ryder’s tight grouping.

Yet even with his new role as the country’s most eligible bachelor, the beautiful, fearless Juliette is utterly beyond his reach.

Evan's mind isn't really PG at times, "...Still, how do I answer? “I, um…” Want to eff you so bad. Dear god, did I just think that?" Evan is just so romantic, "providing well for her is one of the things I can do. So is indulging her. If she wants a fireplace, I don’t understand… but if that will help persuade her to marry me, she’ll have a da*n fireplace." Evan likes to keep his girl happy, “all right. One.” I can’t turn her down when giving in would make her happier . “But if you want me to keep these abs you seemed so fond of licking last night, you can’t feed me empty calories.” I liked this book, I fell in love with Evan.

Yes, you read that right...Tate Prescott, The Tate Prescott, Hollywood Superstar and now the most sought after movie director in the industry is mine. We’ve hidden our relationship from the world for so long that it’s become second nature. The last thing we wanted was a media frenzy to rain down on us.

I liked the easy going attitude that Quinn and Tate sometimes had toward one another, “you didn’t sneak me in here so we could be really naughty and make out in church?” Tate you know notices things it just takes him a long while, "...that’s the dress she wore the day we actually got married. Why in the ***l didn’t I notice that before? Because you were stuck too far up your * ** with self-pity." I loved this book, I loved Tate.
“I’d rather you drop off the face of the earth. Oh wait, you already did that… At least we can agree you are a fool.”
Guilt surges, hitting me square in the chest. “I’m guilty, but I’d like the chance to tell you my side of the story.”
Those silver orbs of hers shift away, as if the memory of what I’d done hurts too much. “I don’t see why you can’t share on the way to town instead of at dinner tomorrow.”
“Because it’s going to take a hell of a lot longer than twenty minutes, Quinn, and you already agreed. Don’t go back on your word.”
“I’m a King. We don’t play those kind of bullshit games with people.”
I stride to my car, opening the passenger side door. “Grab your keys and whatever else, and get in.”
She stands there for a moment, a proud, gorgeous vision of a woman. My mouth goes dry. She radiates power and vulnerability, a true juxtaposition.
But that’s Quinn.
That’s one of the reasons I fell in love with her. It’s also why I can’t let her have the upper hand in this. “I want to renegotiate.”
“What?” she says, clearly annoyed. “You don’t want to have dinner with me?”
“Oh, I do, but I want it to be the first date of many for the next month.”
“The next month?”
My grip tightens on the steering wheel, and I force myself to loosen it. “I want your word now, Quinn. I want you to agree to give our marriage a shot over the next thirty days. I’m all in. I want you to be, too.”
“Just like that.” She snaps her fingers.
“Absolutely.” I sneak a glance at her. She’s regarding me with anger, confusion, and another emotion that I’m certain is hope contorting her face. “I dare you to take me on.”
Her lips purse, brows rising. “I dare you to win me back. If you don’t, you’ll sign the divorce papers.”
“Challenge accepted. “At the next light, we shake hands.

Running into an ex you haven’t seen in nearly a decade is never a good time.
Running into your ex while he’s arresting you is humiliating.
The handcuffs close around my fists at the same time he promises to hate me until he takes his last breath.

It wasn’t for me. Rather, it was for someone else.

Title: Hard Trigger
Author: S.L. Hannah
Publisher: AOH Publishing
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 28, 2018
“Your mother’s opiates are coming from Jose Herrera’s distribution network.” My pulse races as my stepfather speaks these words. Because taking on the Herreras also means taking on Diego.
Reckless, and hardened by a volatile past, Victoria does not see a future with Diego Herrera as a realistic option. As their childhood friendship ignites, they find themselves on opposite sides of a bloody feud between the two most powerful families in Mexico City. And she’s a Moreno now—brought up to be the secret weapon nobody suspected.
But Victoria can’t deny the attraction. Diego’s commanding muscles, the coarse, dark hair of his solid chest, that rugged scar above his sensuous lips…
Loyalty is in the eye of the beholder.
Victoria is a sassy thing, “we both got what we wanted,” I say. “And if you hadn’t interfered tonight, we both would have gotten more. Now let me out.” I found Diego to just be perfect I loved that man I wished Victoria would have just done some different things with him, the man was caring in his own way and Victoria just came off cold to me at times.
My body is spent. I want to feel him release inside of me. I want to collapse on top of him. I want to keep fucking like two animals trying to survive a wilderness that is both beautiful and vicious. Our chests heave in a unison that signals it’s not over, and he starts pumping into me…
Except I’m not just an animal. I turn my head towards the end table, lean over, and grab his cell phone.
“Call them off.” I shove the phone into his palms. “All of them. Tell them I’m not here. That they made a mistake.”
Still pumping into me, he stares at me with widened eyes. “Don’t be fucking crazy. Let me walk you out of here and make everyone believe you’ve disappeared. At least for a little while.”
He’s hitting that spot. That warm and sensitive spot that makes me second-guess every decision and every goal I’ve ever made or had. That makes me want to curl up and be swept away and taken care of, even though I’ve never wanted that to be any part of my long-term plan—because I’ve seen everything my mother has gained and lost by being…taken care of.
Diego searches my face for a place to reason. “What I’m offering…they’re going to catch up to you eventually. And before you catch up to my uncle again. He’s the second-in-line to a multinational business. You killed one of his men last night. You almost killed him. You think no one noticed? This would give us…a chance,” he pleads.
Although he doesn’t say it, it’s the same proposal he made on our trip, except without the ring.
I freeze. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted. I’ve always been tempted. He’ll never know how many times I ran my finger around the circumference of that diamond band on the nightstand before I drove off, deciding on a different destiny. I knew the moment I stepped in the old Peugeot that Diego’s ring would forever be imprinted on my finger.
My response makes him choke on whatever he was about to say and roar in frustration. He’s not the type of man to accept defeat.
His fingers fumble on the phone screen. Awkwardly he holds it against his ear, spitting in Spanish as he does what I’ve asked him to do.
He throws the phone and then locks his forearms around my neck, pulling me closer to him. His cock is still stiff, and it throbs inside of me, reminding me of why we’re even in this position.
Cursing, his lips find mine, biting, absorbing, demanding. And I reciprocate. I have never been unwilling. Our tongues tangle as our bodies rock in unison again.
