S.L. Scott DARE - A ROCK STAR HERO Cover

Synopsis

Dare Marquis is a bad boy rock star with a body to match.

Cocky.

Devilish good looks.

A voice that commands attention.

A night with him and no strings attached is just what I need. But he makes it impossible to not want more when he runs his hand through his dark, wild hair and smiles. One he only shares with me.

Weatherly Beck is an angel with a body made for sin.

Whip-smart.

Drop dead gorgeous.

Too good for any guy from the east side.

Her life is planned out, so I don’t have a right to step in and mess up her future. But when I look into her sapphire blue eyes and taste the innocence on her lips, I know we’re meant to be more than a one-night stand.

I want her to take a chance on me, to take a chance on us. She may not be a damsel in distress, but I Dare her to let me be her Hero.

My Review

Based on the number of Rockstar romances I’ve read, I feel like I can call myself a rocker romance groupie, and frankly, I don’t see anything wrong with it because it’s not the rocker facade that always keeps me coming back to these arrogant, sexy alpha males, it’s the fact that there is so much more to these bad boys then they show on stage, and with the right woman, the guy beneath the persona is the one who rocks my world!

It’s clear just how much Weatherly Beck has missed out on due to her parents’ influence and dictates, but the one thing that I appreciated about how S.L. Scott crafted Weatherly’s character is that she may have allowed people to tell her what to do…to walk the path that was set out for her, but the moment she took back control, she refuses to give it back to people who didn’t deserve it or her. And while, yes, it may be a bit cliche with the whole good girl/bad boy relationship vibe that’s happening at the beginning of the story, but that’s only what brings them together, why they work…why they overcome their past choices as well as their negative influences is about so much more than just Weatherly taking a walk on the wild side and that idea is strewn throughout the pages of DARE.

Dare may personify the edgy, rocker vibe who needs to have an attorney on retainer and who only wants instant gratification out of his time with the women who warm his bed, but he’s not that guy with Weatherly; she’s different from the start and SL Scott makes that fact abundantly clear with the way Dare treats Weatherly, the things he says to her, and the honesty that comes with wanting to be around one another, freely and wholeheartedly.

I adore romances that illustrate how love doesn’t care about how much money someone has, their family pedigree, or what side of the ‘tracks’ they come from, even if they’re complete opposites…And, while society may care about those things and feel it necessary to judge, admonish, and protest, the heart wants what the heart wants and that’s truly all that matters, especially when a person’s character defines them way more than any dollar amount, posh address, or six-figure job could.

Truly living…and loving is dangerous, which means that people need to be brave enough and dare themselves to step out of what they’re accustomed to and go all in, being bold, being completely themselves, and being those things without caring what others think, even those who have known them forever because if they question someone close to them then they don’t truly know what their heart wants or what their soul needs.

But for Weatherly and Dare – their differences don’t dissuade them because their hearts were captured by one another long before they realized exactly who each other was and what they were willing to risk to be together.

TEASER BLITZ: PLAYING FOR KEEPS by Kendall Ryan

PLAYING FOR KEEPS

Hot Jocks, Book 1

By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: August 13th

About the Book

I’ve never been so stupid in my entire life.

Elise Parrish, my teammate’s incredibly sweet and gorgeous younger sister, should have been off-limits, but my hockey stick didn’t get the memo.

After our team won the championship, our flirting turned physical, and I took her to bed. Then shame sent her running the next morning from our catastrophic mistake.

She thinks I don’t remember that night – but every detail is burned into my brain so deeply, I’ll never forget. The feel of her in my arms, the soft whimpers of pleasure I coaxed from her perfect lips….

And now I’ve spent three months trying to get her out of my head, but I’m starting to understand she’s the only girl I’ll ever want.

I have one shot to show her I can be exactly what she needs, but Elise won’t be easily convinced.

That’s okay, because I’m good under pressure, and this time, I’m playing for keeps.

My Review

I’m a sucker for sports romances, which makes Kendall Ryan’s newest release, Playing for Keeps, exactly the kind of  story I love to read and then add to it the fact that Elise and Justin’s story also includes the friends-to-lovers and brother’s best friend romance tropes, and there was no way I was missing this one!

The idea of more between Elise and Justin might have been something they both have considered a time or two, especially now that Elise has grown up to be quite the stunning beauty, but neither of them would have chosen a drunken night of sex for their first attempt at more. But now that it happened and they can’t take it back, they need to figure out what that means and how they move forward, knowing that they crossed a line that there’s no coming back from.

I do have to say that Elise and Justin frustrated me, at times, with both their words and their actions; I wanted them to be honest with themselves and with each other, and while I get why Elise wanted to keep her and Justin’s ‘hook-ups’ secret, the fact that she thought she could do causal with the guy who she’s crushed on since she was young, was never a possibility, regardless of how many times she tried to convince herself it was. Justin’s playboy past was also something that didn’t help because no one around him, even himself, could see him as a one woman kind of guy and that played into both of their insecurities.

The forbidden aspect of Elise and Justin’s connection is there due to the fact that Justin is Elise’s brother’s best friend, roommate, and teammate. But I guess it’s not so much as forbidden but more like a really bad idea given the fact that Owen knows exactly who Justin is and what he likes, so it makes sense that he wouldn’t want Justin anywhere near his baby sister, but I’m hoping Owen will find out in his and Becca’s story that the heart wants what the heart wants, and even though there’s quite a few obstacles for Elise and Justin to overcome, they’ll find there way, with or without Owen’s blessing.

Elise and Justin’s story is a sweet and steamy read that illustrates what happens when feelings get messy and become the game changer that neither saw coming but now plan to play for keeps!

DOUBLE COVER REVEAL: SWAT Generation 2.0 Series by Lani Lynn Vale

Just Kidding

SWAT Generation 2.0 Series – Book 1

Release Day – Jan 7, 2020

Blurb

Let’s do a calendar, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.

Well, they—I.e. Kilgore Police Department’s public relations specialists—were wrong.

Now, every time Dax Tremaine walks around a corner, the women of Kilgore, Texas can’t help calling him Mr. January.

Mr. January, can you fix my flat tire? Mr. January, can you cuff me? Mr. January, can you sign my boob?

It goes from bad to worse when even on a SWAT call, the women won’t stay away.

***

It was the worst time of her life. Rowen Roberts had finally admitted to herself that the man she loved would never love her back. She was just fired from her job for violating client confidentiality, and to make matters worse, she’s held up at gunpoint in a convenience store where she only wanted some ice cream to help mask the pain.

The moment the gun is pressed to her forehead, she knows she has a decision to make. Follow the rules and maybe possibly live, or go down swinging where at least she can salvage just a little bit of her dignity.

And when Mr. January himself tells her to do what the gunman says, she’s had enough. Rowen has never really been a girl that does what she’s told. Mr. January won’t have to save her. She can dang well save herself.

Fries Before Guys

SWAT Generation 2.0 Series – Book 2

Release Day – February 11, 2020

Blurb

Sometimes people come into a person’s life and make their heart skip a beat.

Those people are called cops.

Well, one cop in particular.

A SWAT officer for the Kilgore Police Department, to be specific.

The first time Avery Flynn saw Derek Roberts, she was photographing him for the first annual Kilgore Police Department SWAT calendar. He was leaned back in his squad car, shirtless, and giving her a smile that was completely between them. A smile that hinted at what he wanted to do to her later.

When she scrounges up the courage to ask him out after the photoshoot, he laughs in her face.

Well, screw you, too, Mr. February.

***

Derek Roberts never really paid attention to the photographer.

She was a mousy girl who dressed like a twelve-year-old girl. Her tight leggings, extra baggy Star Trek t-shirt denoting her a Klingon captain, and her surprisingly clean Chucks didn’t leave much of an impression.

Now, the outfit that she was in weeks after he rebuffed her? Yeah, now that caught his attention.

Too bad that happens when he’s trying to save her from what’s sure to be death thanks to an unhinged native Texan who’s convinced she was the reason he lost his last chance at a million dollars.

When he tries to save her, she tells him she’d rather take a cattle prod to the forehead than go anywhere with him.

Challenge. Accepted.

COVER REVEAL: DELICATE PROMISES by Kelly Elliott

DELICATE PROMISES

A stand-alone romance novel in the Southern Bride series

Coming October 18, 2019

Blurb 

At eighteen-years-old, I made a promise with my best friend in high school. If neither one of us were married by age thirty-two, we would marry each other. Now Miles Warner is back in town and wants to cash in on that promise we made all those years ago.

The fact that Miles is still unmarried and single baffles me. The young man I remembered from high school has grown into one of the most handsome men I’ve ever laid eyes on. And he refuses to take no for an answer. You see, he needs a bride, and I’m his last resort. Romantic, isn’t it?

Well, no thank you. That is not going to happen.

At least that’s what I keep telling myself. But as the days pass by and Miles settles back into life in our hometown, I find myself falling head over heels in love with him. Again.

What is the lesson I’ve learned, you ask?

Never make a promise you don’t intend to keep.

Blurb

The last time I saw Declan St. James was at our rehearsal dinner. That was shortly before he jilted me at the altar. To avoid the swarm of whispers and finger pointing every time I dared to show my face in public, I fled two hours south to Atlanta and never looked back. Over the last decade, I’d planned hundreds of scenarios about how our next meeting would go down. The expletives I’d hurl at him. Which knee I might use to annihilate his balls. Which dimpled cheek on his ridiculously handsome face I would send a stinging slap across.

But being elbow deep in a cow’s ass was not one of them.

Normally, I didn’t get up close and personal to a bovine’s rectum. At least not since veterinarian school. But desperate times found me back home to attend my grandfather’s funeral, who happened to be the town’s large animal vet. Those two facts had left me wading through manure in Roy Wallace’s pasture to care for a distressed heifer.

While time and maturity seemed to have changed him from the boy I knew, I still wasn’t falling for his charm. Or his hard, chiseled body. Or ass you could eat dinner off of.

No, I wasn’t going back down that street again. Unfortunately, Declan didn’t seem to get the message. Instead, he seemed as stubborn as he ever was and ready for a fight. It’ll be the fight of his life for me to let him back in my heart.

COVER REVEAL: JOCK ROAD by Sara Ney

Blurb

EAT. SLEEP. FOOTBALL.

Those are Jackson Jennings, Jr’s three mantras . His entire life, he’s been a trained athlete with only one end-game: the Pro’s. No girls. No parties. No alcohol.

EAT. SLEEP. FOOTBALL.

Repeat.

Every Friday night, Triple J cruises the strip on campus, bored, lonely and conditioned not to party. But the night he meets Charlotte Edmonds on the side of the road, he wonders if his three mantras will ever be enough.

BIG. DUMB. JOCK.

Charlie has no time for Jackson’s antics. Not when he’s stealing her food or teases her to no end, making her tingle in all the right places. But if she’s ever going to have a boyfriend, she’d choose one who isn’t a Neanderthal. One with manners and actual time to spend with her. Not a hulking man-child who cruises the strip at night, in his Big. Dumb. Truck.

COVER REVEAL AND EXCERPT: SINK OR SWIM by Tessa Bailey

Sink or Swim is the final installment of the Beach Kingdom Series (following Mouth to Mouth and Heat Stroke).

Sink or Swim is Andrew and Jiya’s story (friends to lovers!) and can be read as a standalone title, although the characters are introduced in the two previous series books.

Sink or Swim will release on August 20th on Kindle Unlimited.

Blurb

Andrew Prince wakes up before everyone else. He schedules the bar shifts, demands perfection from Long Beach’s lifeguards—most of all himself—and makes sure the family debts are paid. His unfaltering worth ethic might leave him exhausted, but it comes with one advantage. It distracts him from the love he’s been harboring since childhood for the girl next door—who he cannot have.

Jiya Dalal has dreams. To fly a plane, see the world below…and prove irresistible to her best friend, Andrew. But she needs to be a good daughter first, which is becoming an increasingly difficult task, since her parents expect a good marriage and the man she loves with all her heart refuses to pursue the blistering connection between them. Just when she’s beginning to believe Andrew truly doesn’t want her, a moonlight tryst on the beach exposes his true feelings. But an echo from the past kept them apart before…and it’s only growing louder with every stolen kiss…

Goodreads Link: https://bit.ly/2MbDTXM

 

Excerpt

Jiya looked up and found Andrew watching her intently. “What is this, Andrew?”

“We’re dancing,” he rasped, his gaze slightly unfocused.

“You’ve never danced with me like this before.”

His gaze strayed to her lips, before he resolutely dragged them away. “Do you want to stop?”

“No and that’s the problem.” Come on, Mrs. I Don’t Play Games Anymore, bring up the elephant in the room. It’s not going away. “You’ve been different with me lately. Is it…” She took two bracing breaths. “Is it because I’m dating?”

He started to deny it, then changed his mind. “Might be. Yeah. I know that’s fucked up,” he said. “You’ve always been min—my best friend. We won’t have this if you start dating someone seriously. If you…”

“Get married?” 
His complexion turned gray. “Mmm.”
 Cement caked her insides, but she was used to it by now. She’d loved Andrew since she was a child. She’d waited patiently for him to love her back—as more than a friend—and he hadn’t. He’d done nothing about it. So while she yearned to dissect his every word and rejoice in them, ached for what he was feeling, she couldn’t do it anymore without being a fool. “Ask me the question, Andrew. The one you ask me every night.”

A line formed between his brows. “Can I do anything for you, Jiya?”

“Yes.” She took his face in her hands. “You can stay my friend. No matter what happens. Fine, things are changing in my life. But I couldn’t bear it if I ever lost what we have. Just stay my friend. Promise me.”

His jaw bunched. “You know I’d cut my heart out before saying no to you, right?”

“Yes.”

“Then you have your answer.” He wet his lips. “But we’re finishing the dance.”

About the Author

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.
