Excerpt 

Meet Kendall and Hunter 

KENDALL

I quickly changed into my workout shorts and tank top and headed to the back of the apartments. As I approached the glass doors, I stopped short, cursing my luck. It was nearly ten. The place should have been deserted.

Why, cruel world? Why me? What have I done to deserve this punishment?

Hunter sat on a bench in the gym, shirtless, his profile to me. He had earbuds in and was clearly focused on his workout. Leaning forward, he curled a weight that was probably heavier than I was. The tattoos on his arm shifted with each movement, and I may have drooled a little bit. I wiped my mouth, hoping I hadn’t.

Walk away, Kendall. Walk away now.

I was rooted in place as I stared, taking in everything about him. I couldn’t take my eyes off him. After another set, he put the weights down and moved to a bar where he proceeded to do one armed pull-ups. How is that even possible? I’d never seen this done in real life. No wonder he’d been able to jump that fence at his ranch.

Hunter switched arms, and have mercy on me, I thought I might die on the spot. His abs were like a washboard. I’d have bet I could crack an egg on them.

Bang!

I dropped to me knees and lifted my hands as pain radiated through my face. My worst nightmare had just come to life. How did I walk into the glass door? The cleaners must have cleaned really well.

I was afraid to open my eyes.

From the tingles on my skin, I knew Hunter Owens was staring at me.

Kill. Me. Now.

HUNTER

Hearing a noise I turned and saw Kendall back away from the glass door and drop to the floor.

“Shit!” I whispered as I grabbed my stuff and made my way out of the gym. To my surprise,Kendall was crawling along the floor, apparently uninjured. With a smile, I leaned against the wall and watched her attempt to make her escape.

“Whatcha doing?”

She stopped, then began to run her hands along the floor as if looking for something.

“I dropped a… um… my contact! I dropped my contact.”

She was something else. One minute I wanted to strangler her, the next I wanted to drag her into my arms and kiss her.

“Your contact?”

“Yes, my contact. You know, the little things that help visually impaired people see better.”

I couldn’t help but notice she was slowly making her way back toward the apartments. She was dressed like she’d been planning to work out. Her shorts were riding up her ass just enough to cause my imagination to get the best of me.

Fuck, if she didn’t get up soon, I was going to do something I might regret. Instead, I reached for her arm and helped her up. My heart stopped when I saw that she was bleeding.

“Damn it, Kendall. Your nose is bleeding.”

She reached up, touched her nose, and then flinched. Drawing her fingers back, she stared at the blood on her hand. “Oh, wow. I hit it pretty hard.”

“Come on, let’s see if we can get that bleeding under control.”

Kendall seemed to be in shock because for the first time since I’d met her, she was silent.

She has a head for business and a body for sin.

He is a coach who knows how to use his equipment.

Neither is looking for love.

Should be easy, right?

Wrong.

This might be the most important game Kendall Wales and Hunter Owens have ever played where everything is on the line.

With one wrong play, they could lose it all.

Hopefully, the game clock doesn’t reach zero before it’s too late

COVER REVEAL: HEARTTHROB by Robin Bielman

Heartthrob - CR Banner

He likes a challenge…

Heartthrob, the first steamy standalone in the American Royalty Series from USA Today bestselling author Robin Bielman, is coming May 7th!

heartthrob-MEDIUM.jpg

Here’s the deal: I’m the best center fielder in the major leagues. I’m also the guy who cost his team the championship game and acted very unsportsmanlike. So, when the team hires a social media manager to repair the damage to my reputation, I don’t argue. But then I meet Chloe Conrad, and I suddenly understand what people mean when they say they have an instant connection to someone. Which means I’m in serious trouble. Chloe’s a smart, sexy distraction I can’t afford, but one date can’t hurt, right? Only she turns me down. And just like that, it’s game on.

She’s sworn off love…

Finn Auprince is the hottest player in the major leagues. Look up “It Factor” in the dictionary and there’s his handsome face. He’s also my biggest client and I don’t care how easy it is to talk to him or how fun it is to manage his social media accounts, I will not give in to his charms. Then one drunken night, I tell him about my curse: all my previous boyfriends have found their soul mates while dating me. One more heartbreak, and I’ll never recover. But Finn doesn’t believe in curses—he believes in me. Professionally and personally. He sets out to prove the universe isn’t against me, and that his one true love isn’t waiting around the next corner.

The problem is…can we play the game of love and both come out on top?

BLOG TOUR REVIEW AND EXCERPT: SPACE by Penny Reid

 

Space, the second book in the all-new Laws of Physics Trilogy from Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid, is available now!

LOP_SPACE.jpg

One week.

Private cabin.

Famous physicist.

Still an unrepentant slacker.

What’s the worst that could happen?

Mona’s meticulously planned allotment of relaxation is thrown into chaos by the unscheduled appearance of her older brother’s band of friends, including the one person she’d hoped to never face again. Abram still makes her feel entirely too much, which is one of the reasons she disappeared after their one week together. But now, trapped on a mountain of snow and things unspoken, Mona will have to find a way to coexist with Abram, chaos and all.

Laws of Physics is the second trilogy in the Hypothesis series; Laws of Physics parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.

Excerpt

“Hi—hello,” she said, stepping forward but not out of the way, drawing my attention.

She was still staring at me, her face still pale, but her eyes had turned searching instead of stunned.

“I—” She stopped herself, swallowing, her gaze dropping to the front of my coat, a cute little frown furrowing her eyebrows. In the next moment, she was pulling off the glove of her right hand. Abruptly, she shoved the ungloved fingers toward me, returning her eyes to mine. “I’m Mona.”

I suppressed my disbelief at her small action before it could break my outward mask of calm. I wasn’t calm. Just to be clear, I was the opposite of calm.

The fact that she was introducing herself to me now meant that she thought I was too stupid to figure out her lies over the last two-and-a-half-fucking years. She was arguably one of the smartest people in the world, after all. To her, people like me must seem like housebroken pets. So it shouldn’t have surprised me. But it did. The tension and tightness around my ribs reappeared, squeezing uncomfortably.

Dropping my attention to her bare hand, I pressed my lips into a tighter line, dismissing the way my pulse jumped at the sight of her wrist, the olive tone of her skin under the yellow string lights overhead. Glaring at her outstretched offering, I considered telling her to go to hell.

I considered it, but I wouldn’t.

I didn’t trust myself to speak, that was reason number one.

The other reason was harder to explain, or use as a justification, or admit to myself. Staring at her hand, I braced against a sudden flare of hunger. She might consider me a lower life-form, but that didn’t change the fact that I wanted to touch her. I wanted to touch her more than I wanted to tell her to go to hell, and that was fucking pitiful.

But there it was.

Acting on the compulsion, I lifted my right hand and tugged off the ski glove, sliding my warm palm against her much colder one. Her hand felt good in my hand, the right weight, the right size, the right texture, and I inhaled freezing air.

Mona also seemed to suck in a slow but expansive breath as our hands touched, held. This brought my eyes back to hers in time to see her lashes flutter. Pink colored her previously pale cheeks. The sound of the wailing wind, the sting of the air and frost momentarily melted away, leaving just her, her soft skin warming against mine, her beautiful face filling my vision.

So beautiful.

She really was. She was stunning. I hated that she was still so beautiful to me.

SPACE_Teaser01.jpg

My Review

The title of book two, Space, lends itself nicely to a variety of hypotheses when it comes to where Penny Reid plans to take her hero and heroine in the second part of their story, and while I’ll admit, I didn’t quite anticipate the non-linear path Mona and Abram took to be around each other again after the implosion of their would-be chemistry at the end of Motion, my theory that it would not be easy for either one of them to move forward or accept what happened the short time they spent together was proven correct, even if it wasn’t entirely resolved.

The idea of space, when it comes to both Mona and Abram, is an interesting one…for the longest time, Mona has thrived without being close to anyone, needed that distance, not only due to her issues with touching but also because even if she can articulate every concept in the world of science, when it comes to talking about herself, especially anything that’s personal, she shuts down or takes too scientific of an approach, leaving those around her more confused than enlightened.

I don’t know if I’ve ever been more frustrated with two characters for their lack of communication than I was when I was reading part two of Mona and Abram’s story. Don’t get me wrong, I understand why Abram is beyond furious with Mona, and I can’t blame Abram for both loving and hating her, but what I do take issue with is the fact that he reacted without allowing Mona to speak…without realizing how difficult it is for her to put her feelings out there…without taking two seconds to see things from her point of view, especially since he feels so strongly and deeply for her even though they had only spent 6 days together. 

The fact that Mona feels like she has to earn everything she gets stems from her family’s lack of putting her first and making her feel unloved and isolated. Her entire family seems incredibly selfish and don’t even get me started on Leo – he seriously has a warped sense of things and he needs someone to straighten his ass out! And I gladly offer my services because man did I want to nut punch him for his ridiculous comments and reasoning.

This is definitely a unique love story because even though book two is about two years from the end of book one, the total time that Abram and Mona have spent together still doesn’t add up to a complete week, not in sense that they were with each other for the entire time, and I’m sure that, that fact plays into the rather tense and cold interactions these two have throughout the course of the story.

With Time being the end of Mona and Abram’s story, I, once again, have several theories with where their journey will take them, not only because of how things ended in Space, but because, it’s something that both of them are going to need in order to work out all of the feelings they’ve kept stored away, trusting one another to not put any further space between them and hoping that there would come a time where the universe would align and they could be together. And I most certainly hope that’s the case!

RELEASE REVIEW: THE HOOKUP HANDBOOK by Kendall Ryan

A hot new brother’s best friend standalone romance from New York Times best selling author Kendall Ryan is live available everywhere.

Get THE HOOKUP HANDBOOK today!

About The Hookup Handbook

My love wand is on a strike.

As bad as that blows, pun unintended, it’s ten times worse for me. I’m a male escort, but not just any escort, I’m the escort. The one with a mile-long waiting list and a pristine reputation that’s very well-deserved.

Only now, I’m on hiatus. Because after years of pleasing women all over the city, my man missile decides to get finicky. And the only woman he wants? Someone I can never have—my best friend’s younger sister, the nerdy and awkwardly adorable Sienna.

She’s working at the agency this summer, keeping me organized, handling paperwork, and most importantly, keeping me on track to finish writing my book about sex and intimacy, which is due to my publisher in thirty days.

She thinks I hate her, that I don’t want her here. The truth is much more twisted. I get hard every time she walks into my office. Her wide blue eyes and pouty mouth drive me wild with desire, and if she stays, I’m not sure how much longer I can stay away from her.

Little Miss Overachiever says she’s here to help? Fine. I’m going to put her nerdy, curvy tush to work.

My Review

When it comes to the ins and outs of sex and intimacy, Case Smith is a pro, and I mean that in every sense of the word; because for the past 8 years, he’s been a male escort, sleeping his way through a never-ending list of clients, but even though he’s damn good at his job and keeps his female clientele more than satisfied, the stress of running a business, managing his employees and their schedules as well as an upcoming book deadline that he’s barely started and it makes sense that his sex drive has taken a hit, but interestingly enough, it’s not that he can’t perform, it’s that there only seems to be one woman who gets him hard – too bad she’s his newest employee, his best friend’s little sister, and completely off-limits! 

Boy could Case use a handbook in order to maneuver around his current attraction, or maybe…he just throws his rulebook out and sees what he could have with a certain curvy and sassy part-time employee who makes him look as his profession with fresh eyes.

I love the fact that Sienna busts Case’s balls on day 1. She doesn’t hold back when she questions him about his 8 year career of sleeping with women and she asks the tough questions, even if he refuses to answer them or even consider them while she’s in his presence. Case needs a woman who will challenge him, not the typical women who fawn all over him and his gorgeous self.

The push and pull between Sienna and Case had to happen, even if it was frustrating. There’s a lot on the line for both of them that has nothing to do with his business or her job, which means if they’re going to give into their feelings and desire for one another, they need to know what they’re risking and be okay with the fallout if things end badly. 

I do have to mention Case’s word choice when it comes to a particular part of his anatomy. I should have ran a tally of the number of words and descriptions Case used to describe his penis – I truly didn’t know there were that many colorful variations, and while some were completely absurd, I anxiously anticipated what would come out of Case’s mouth next to label his favorite appendage.

The Hookup Handbook has heat, heart, and hilarity; it’s a brother’s best friend, office romance that proves that a ‘cocky manwhore playboy’ can be a one-woman man if the right girl comes along and knocks him on his ass.

RELEASE REVIEW: HEAT STROKE by Tessa Bailey

Book Release: March 18, 2019

Heat Stroke is a m/m story and the the second book in the Beach Kingdom Series (Jamie and Marcus’s story) but it can be read as a standalone.

Heat Stroke on Goodreads: https://bit.ly/2NDsjCY

Blurb

Marcus “Diesel” O’Shaughnessy is a brash, oversized CrossFit enthusiast with a naked lady tattooed on his rippling forearm. Jamie Prince is a private school teacher with an extremely low tolerance for bullshit. The two men have zero in common. Well, except for three things.

They’re both moonlighting as lifeguards for the summer.
No matter how hard they try, they cannot stay away from each other.
And both of them have secrets they’re determined to keep.

But what happens in the shadows of the Long Beach boardwalk can only remain hidden for so long, before the July sunshine reveals the hot, unrelenting connection they never expected, forcing Marcus and Jamie to decide if they’re simply caught up in a temporary heat stroke or if they’ve found something worth rescuing…

HEAT STROKE —–> Amazon: https://geni.us/lFU63x4

My Review

Heat Stroke – the title of Marcus ‘Diesel’ O’Shaughnessy and Jamie Prince’s story in Tessa Bailey’s Beach Kingdom series has several meanings for its characters and readers. At its most basic level, it applies to the fact that both Marcus and Jamie are life guards for the summer in Long Beach, enduring the California heat as they protect and serve beach goers. And while the potential for heat stroke due to the temperature and sun rays is not a foregone conclusion, what is, is the fact that the steamy and emotional scenes between these two amazing men will have readers panting, perhaps even needing to fan themselves due to the overwhelming sensations that resonate from the pages as Marcus and Jamie’s connection becomes so much more than physical.

It’s beyond apparent just how opposite the lives and personalities are of Bailey’s two heroes, but, in this case, it works in their favor, allowing Marcus and Jamie to lighten and to enlighten each other’s lives, amping up the sexual tension between them and taking them on a journey that will push their limits, explore their true natures, and, hopefully, allow at least one of them a much needed connection that will give him the strength to live his life the way he wants to, regardless of who accepts him or not. 

I’m an avid reader of MM romances, and I’m always looking for new authors in the genre, so the fact that I found one from a writer whose books I adore is a definite plus. And boy does Tessa Bailey craft one hell of a sexy, swoon worthy, and emotional story for two men who deserve everything their hearts desire and more. But in order to make that happen, in order to help them accept the overwhelming pull they feel towards one another…the endless need that resonates throughout their bodies to be together, despite the obstacles…despite the secrets…despite their personal misgivings, and especially…despite the amount of heat that might come their way, pressuring them to give up the one person who makes them feel exactly who they were always meant to be.

Author Bio

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eleven years and six-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

BLOG TOUR REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY: Heart of the Devil by Meghan March

Blurb

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes the stunning conclusion to the Forge Trilogy. In this final volume, ruthless billionaire Jericho Forge faces his toughest challenge. To emerge victorious, he’ll have to give up the one thing he’s never offered a woman—his heart.

It started as a game. She was nothing but my pawn.

But I was quick to see the error in my ways, and now she is everything I never knew I needed.

The value of a woman like India Baptiste is beyond measure.

But the problem with being a man like me? I’ve already screwed this up, and there’s no guarantee India will take me on for one last bet.

I’ll do whatever I have to do. Drop to my knees and offer her the only thing I have left. The one thing that’s only ever been hers—the heart of the devil.

My Review

Can a happily-ever-after be achieved when the not so happy union started because of a lost bet, a few kidnappings, and some underhanded negotiations?

The answer to that question would undoubtedly be a hell no, but when it comes to Jericho Forge and Indy Savage’s marriage, there’s nothing one or both of them aren’t willing to do to get their hearts’ desire because even though it’s a foreign concept to Jericho, he’s actually found the woman who gives as good as she gets and is his ace in the hole when he needs her the most, even if it takes him a bit too long to figure that out on his own.

As Meghan March’s The Forge Trilogy series has progressed, readers have watched a stoic and cold-hearted man hellbent on exacting revenge and completing cutthroat business deals figure out that he’s not as emotionless as he thought and his heart may be just as big as his Kraken, thanks to a beautiful poker playing powerhouse who is more than ready to go all-in when it comes to what they could mean to each other despite their shaky beginning and the number of threats who are still out for blood in a deadly game that isn’t quite what it seems nor are the players who they appear to be either.

There’s a lot to sort through when Heart of the Devil opens up, and while some conclusions are easily made, when it comes to the things that matter most, misspoken words and devious actions can easily upend Indy and Jericho’s progress, allowing outside influences to force their hands and their decisions, costing them so much more than money can buy.

I have to admit…heading into the final book, I wasn’t sure how March would bring all of the conflicts to a head without it feeling forced or predictable, but I can unequivocally report that the pivotal scenes in Heart of the Devil were expertly crafted in a way that allows readers to thoroughly understand the reasons behind every deal….every consequence…every secret and I felt completely satisfied with how everything played out, because not only does Jericho prove he has a heart, but Indy solidifies why she belongs at his side, bringing light to his dark world and love to a soul that may have been tainted with a multitude of hate, but just needed the right woman to show him the way to love, to hope, and to forever.
