Synopsis

Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.

Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.

So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in the renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.

And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to side in the club’s best interest if he’s ready to play.

But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat or is one of them bound to get burned?

Header The Player

The Player really is SO much more than a sports romance!

K. Bromberg proved once again what an incredibly talented author she is, and what an addictive writing style she has, keeping us completely enthralled in the story, that we only rest when we find the words The End.

Easton Wylder’s life is baseball. He lives, breaths and sleeps the sport, so when he suffers a serious – and career threatening – injury which forces him to stay away from this sport that defines his whole existence, he finds himself in a dark place where the hope of a full recovery and being back in the game is his only lifeline.

And I dare to look at what I’m missing out on. The nets of the backstop fade away as I stare at the place where I’ve lived my life—between the chalk lines and behind home plate.
It’s fucking beautiful. A blessing and a curse. My pleasure and my pain.
The only thing I’ve ever known.
The only thing I’ve ever wanted to do.

To recover all that he demands the best of the best of physical therapists, Doc Dalton, PT legend. 

Well, we can’t always have what we want, and destiny throws Easton what heck of a curveball when the beautiful, smart and feisty, Scout Dalton, shows up in her father’s place to bring back to shape. Let’s just say that their first meeting/s is LEGENDARY! LOL! 

And there’s a zap of electricity—a hum of something—when our bodies connect in this most innocent of ways.

Sparks fly, tempers ignite, and K. Bromberg gives us one of the most delicious and well thought out sexy  and smart banters I have ever read! 

“So, what? You just walk up and throw some stats at her? ‘Hey, baby, I’m having a killer season, batting three seventy-five with a twenty-game hitting streak. Wanna go out?’”
“Nah.” He fights back a laugh, and I hate that even though I know I’m being mocked, that sheepish smile of his draws me in to take a step closer. “I just tell her I have a big stick and I know just how to use it.”

Easton really proves to be a challenging patient, but worry not, because Scout sure gives as good as she gets and I LOVED that! Her comebacks are just was good as Easton’s teasing.

“So you actually want me to look at your arm? You mean you’ll trust me with it? And here I was under the impression you thought I was just a trophy trainer.”
“Come again?” He chuckles.
Time to clear the air between us. Being handsome doesn’t override being an asshole. “You know, trophy trainer—someone good for you to look at, but incapable of much else.”
He shrugs. “If the shoe fits.”

Their chemistry is undeniable, and this back and forth between them just takes to a whole new level of sexual tension! Their teasing and sports innuendos just blew my mind! I couldn’t get enough of these two!

“This is contract, Hot Shot,” I say knowing damn well he’s enjoying this. “We’ll start working our way to first base, and then, depending on how you’re feeling, we can move on to second.”

So when they finally gave in to their attraction, we got some OFF THE CHARTS sex scenes! Of course the teasing and witty banter was also present in those, and it just made it more deliciously HOT!

“You like that?”
“God, yes.”
“I don’t think God has anything to do with this, but feel free to call his name.” He chuckles and looks up at me over the rise of my breasts, his eyes sharp with desire and contradicted by a cocky flash of a grin. “’Cause we’re about to get biblical.”

OMG, this man!!! Yes, Scout was a kickass female character, and I loved her strength and smart mouth, but Easton surprised the hell out of me! I was expecting the standard cocky ‘player’ persona to a T, but K. Bromberg surprised me and gave us an incredible and deep character, with a hint of fragility and a whole lot of love and sincerity that coupled with his smoking hot image made him impossible to resist!

Sure, Easton hits all my buttons: hot, athletic, funny, and a bit of a mystery.

He didn’t hit just her buttons that’s for sure! He was sensible and caring. Utterly swoon-worthy! Directly to my Best Book Boyfriend list! <3

You got me. And then you seduced me.”
“I what?” I cough the words out as that soft smile of his turns big and bright.
“You seduced me. A beautiful woman with a sharp tongue, a sharper mind, and a look in her eye that said she was scared and confident, haloed by the light of a baseball stadium . . . I mean, a man only has so much restraint when it comes to that kind of perfection.”

Didn’t I tell you he was dreamy?! Swoon…

And what made me love him even more was that he fast realized how special their connection was, and from that moment forward he was all in, and pursued her relentlessly. He took her and her insecurities and fear and did everything humanly possible to show her that she should take a chance on them. That she could trust him with her heart. I truly couldn’t have asked for a better male character.

“I’ve had enough people in my life leave me, Easton. I’m not walking willingly into a situation that sets me up for that hurt.”

“I’ve played on grass my whole life, Scout. There’s no need for me to see what’s out there when it’s green beneath my feet.”

Even Scout couldn’t resist this kind of proof. Just like in baseball, he gave everything of him, and proved over and over how worthy he was of this chance. How their relationship was worthy of letting go of her fears. Even with the upcoming obstacles I have no doubt they are worth fighting for. And Scout’s motto ‘clear mind, hard heart’ will prove to be moot when it comes to them.

That hard heart of mine doesn’t seem so hard any more. Not when it comes to Easton Wylder, at least.

In those moments she let’s go and they give in to their carnal magnetism, you better be prepared for this degree of HEAT. Add to that their mutual taste for filthy talk, and let’s just say you may need a cold shower to sooth the hot flashes they will provoke! 😉

“I want your cock, Easton Wylder. I want it right now. I want to wrap my lips around it. I want it hitting the back of my throat. I want all of it. To suck you off. To fuck you with my mouth. I want every last drop you have to give me.”

The player really was so much more than a sports romance. Family and friendship relationships are beautifully and realistically described and developed. The writing really is incredibly captivating and touching and their love story is already epic, and we have only seen the first part of it! I can’t wait to see what more Kristy Bromberg will bring to Scout and Easton’s story! Specially after the way The Player finished, I’m desperately counting down the days to The Catch!!! June 29th can’t come fast enough! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“And what is it about you and romance novels? Is it the happily ever after? Is it the man who’s too good to be true? Because I assure you, we all have our flaws, even the fictional ones. But the happily ever after depends on what you put into it. The hard work, the listening instead of talking, the laughing instead of crying, the sticking it out instead of running away, the knowing that sometimes silence is best but having her wrapped in your arms can still solve a lot of problems. So, you can have your romance novels while I have my King and Follett and Patterson because I don’t want to read about having that kind of love someday. I’d rather be over here trying to take a chance at it in real life.”

Synopsis

Ryder Rodgers had a plan.

He was going to stride into the conference room, do the required song and dance over the next five days, and win the biggest contract of his career. But when he walked in and heard the voice of one of his competitors, all his plans were shot to hell.

Harper Denton. She was always on top. In college. First in their class. Always using every advantage to edge him out to win the coveted positions. The only one who could beat him. His academic rival. More like a constant thorn in his side. And his ego’s.

When he heard her voice, he was brought back to years before. To the bitter taste of being second best. But the woman who meets his gaze is nothing like the drab wallflower he used to know. Hell no. She was all woman now: curves, confidence, and staggering sex appeal. And no doubt, still brilliant.

The fact that she’s gorgeous and bright won’t distract him. This time, Ryder’s determined to be the one on top. But not if Harper can help it.

Excerpt

Work first. Reward sex next.

  That’ll give me something to look forward to during the next few days. The ones I can’t wait to dive headfirst into that will be an ever-changing combination of stress, exhaustion, strategy, and manipulation. An unscripted dance amongst us bidders while we size each other up, calculate our numbers, and explain to the developer why we’re the most valuable candidate for the job.

  It’s the game I love. The competition I thrive on. My return to the job that I’ve been desperate to make.

  And there’d be no better way to make a statement that Harper Denton is back than to leave this building with the multimillion dollar contract for Meteor Development tucked securely under my arm.

  And just like that, as a reward for my positive thinking, when I look up, there he is, in full view.

  I take in the expensive briefcase, the venti Starbucks, and the expensive watch peeking out from beneath the cuff of his shirt. And just my luck that while I’m afforded a full view of his body, the one thing I’m the most curious about is obscured by his hand holding his cell phone up to his ear: his face.

  So instead I drink him in. He really is magnificent. I note his posture and the way he carries his body when he moves forward a few steps. There’s an air about him that says he’s no-nonsense and in control, powerful, and at the same time he doesn’t seem uptight. He has that Southern     

  California professional vibe. I can’t put my finger on it but he reminds me of someone I can’t quite place. Regardless, a man who can pull off being in control and playful has definite merits.

  Like “spank me until my body aches in want, and then make a game of hitting each erogenous zone with his tongue before he’ll satisfy that ache he created and let me come” type of merits.

   The mind-blowing-sex reward just became even more appealing.

 
 

 

 

Header Sweet Rivalry

Sweet Rivalry is a spin-off of Sweet Cheeks, featuring Ryder, brother of the female main character Saylor. Although there’s this connection this story was created as a standalone. 

Sweet Rivalry is Ryder and Harpers’ short, fun and super sexy story. I love a good enemies to lovers tale, and this is what K. Bromberg gave in this book.

This is Ryder.
My rival.
My supporter.
My crush.

Harper and Ryder have a competitive past amongst themselves. All throughout their MBA and until the very end of it, they were each others biggest adversary (and deep down supporter), but simultaneously bringing up to light their very best.

Now, thirteen years after they are once again on opposing teams on a bidding war, but in more ways than one both are very different from those college years…

“A princess may not need to be saved, but she sure as shit needs to take a ride on that unicorn she’s found every once in a while. He’ll remind her she needs to live instead of staying locked up tight in that tower of hers.”

Despite that, some things never change, and their first instinct when coming face to face with each other is pushing the other until one of them comes on top. But now, more than ever, and given their off the charts sexual attraction, being on top was never more appealling!!!

Whoever said dreams were better flat out lied. Because Ryder is mouthwateringly fine. Breathtakingly sexy.

Since the moment I saw Ryder, I tried to hold true to my mantra—bid first, then reward sex––but I don’t think I ever once believed myself.

OMG, their undeniable physical attraction coupled with their non-stop sexy banter created some smoking HOT moments. It was sexual tension so thick you could cut it with a knife, and they absolutely rejoiced in that…

It’s heaven.
And hell.
It’s want mixed with need.
And I can’t warring against more please.
It’s reawakened desire versus self-preservation.

Sweet Rivalry really was a delicious fast little read, that showed once again K. Bromberg incredible writing talent, and amazing theme research  (working on the area I was pleasantly surprised with the accuracy of some elements). The only points that ended up lacking, in my opinion, were the fact that I felt no true emotional feeling by either of them, but only lust, and that is something I always crave in my romance stories, no matter its length. Fact that was enhanced by the lack of an epilogue or something along those lines that would allow us to look a bit further into their future, and realize there was much more to them than unmeasurable chemistry, something deeper. That being said it, Sweet Rivalry was still an fantastic and enjoyable little treat with kickass and well developed characters. K. Bromberg’s amazing writing in a fun sized package! <3 <3 <3 <3

“May the best man win.” He presses a kiss to my shoulder that makes my stomach flip-flop from the butterfly wings starting to flutter.
“May the best woman win. It’s sexist to assume it’s going to be a man.”

“Wait. That’s bullshit. There’s only one woman bidding.”
“Exactly.”

Synopsis

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby continues to delight the senses with the latest novel in her delectable Fusion series.

As the take-charge wine bar manager of Seduction, Portland’s hottest new restaurant, Katrina Meyers is the definition of no-nonsense, and she isn’t afraid of anything. Well, almost anything: she hates to fly. When she’s forced to travel on a death trap with wings, the turbulence from hell has her reaching for any safe haven—including the incredibly handsome guy sitting next to her.

Ryan “Mac” MacKenzie hasn’t been able to get his sexy seatmate out of his head. The way she clung to him stirred something inside him he didn’t think existed: tenderness. As the owner of a successful wine touring company, Mac thinks he’s got a handle on what life can throw at him and he’s not prepared for any surprises, especially in the feelings department. And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can’t forget.

Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?

Excerpt

“You look like you’re feeling better.”

Mac. That’s Mac’s voice in my ear. A shiver runs through me as I turn around and look up, way up, into his green eyes.

“I am,” I reply and take a sip of my wine. Was he that good looking on the plane? “I didn’t realize you were attending this conference.”

“You had other things on your mind earlier,” he says smoothly and motions for the bartender. “I’ll have what she’s having, and another for her as well.”

“What if you don’t like pinot?” I ask and tilt my head to the side.

“I like it all,” he says with a wink.

Oh my.

“Do you know many people here?” he asks, nodding toward Sally who has moved on to chat with another group of people.

“A few. I’ve not met most of them in person, unless they were up in Washington or Oregon. How about you?”

“Same,” he says with a grin. “This is my first conference down in Napa Valley. And it’s off to a great start.”

“Right.” I laugh and shake my head. “Dealing with a crazy chick on the plane is exactly the best way to start your trip.”

“It is,” he says and looks me dead in the eye. “She wasn’t that crazy. She was scared. There’s a difference.”

“Well, she’s fine now.”

“I’m glad.” His lips tip up into a smile and my stomach clenches. He has a dimple in his left cheek.

I want to lick it.

I take a sip of my fresh glass of wine and smirk to myself. Perhaps Mac fits the sexcation bill.

“What just went through that gorgeous head of yours?”

“I’m not drunk enough to tell you yet,” I reply honestly. Mac’s eyes widen briefly, and then he simply smiles at me.

“There’s a lot of wine in this place.”

“Thank God for that.”

A few hours later, after chatting with many people, new and those I already know, including Mac, he escorts me up to my room.

Sexcation.

But when we reach my door, he leans in and kisses my cheek. Just the cheek. I frown up at him.

“This is supposed to be a sexcation, not a fucking dating game.” It’s a grumble, but I’m shocked to hear it actually leave my lips, rather than stay in my head where it’s supposed to be.

“A what?” Mac asks.

“Nothing.” I shake my head and pull my key card out of my handbag. “Good night.”

“Kat?”

“Yeah.” I look back at him and sigh a little at the sexy dimple in his cheek and the way his shirt pulls against his shoulders as he leans on the doorframe.

“I’ll see you in the morning.”

“It’s already morning,” I remind him.

“It won’t be too long, then.”

Header Blush For Me

Blush for Me is an amazing, lighthearted, thoughtful and sexy story! The third installment of the series, and I have to say, my favorite so far, tells us the story of Kat, the independent, sassy and overall kickass bar manager of our Seduction restaurant – the setting of all the series -, and Mac, the handsome, caring, and charming wine tour businessmen and how a simple sexcation becomes so, so much more!

Kat meets Mac in her worst nightmare come true, her first flight, and he becomes her save anchor, grounding and calming her when that very thing seemed almost impossible. Even in this less than appealing scenario, they can’t help but notice the immediate attraction, so when they are in their destination and realize they are spending one week together, they decide decide to enjoy it to the fullest, and Kat gets her sexcation, and they are more than happy with their no strings attached sexy times. Or so they thought…

Of course the plan falls flat when after that week they just crave each other more. So, for the first time in his life Mac decides to work for the attention and care of a woman, and Kat was more than worthy of that. It was game on!!!

I need to put some effort into it, and honestly, she deserves no less than that.
Romance just isn’t on my radar because it’s not something I do.
But I’m about to.

Kat had her own reservations, and doubts because of her past, but like the incredibly intelligent and rational woman that she is, soon she realizes that Mac is not just another men, and how could she not? He romanced the sh!t out of her! Swoon worthy, hearts in the eyes kind of romance! And reading Kat her sexy romances? HOT!!!

“I’m falling for you, Katrina,” I murmur against her lips. Her eyes open in surprise, and just when I expect her to say something along the lines of this is moving so fast, she does what she always does.
She surprises me.
“It’s about time you caught up,”

Yes, they are both equally amazing, I can’t decide who I loved more, because Kristen Proby created one of the best female main characters I’ve ever read. I adored everything about her from her rockabilly clothes to her sarcastic wit, she was AWESOME!!! But man, Mac is the romance hero dreams are made of! And OTT sexy to boot! 

I want her. I never stop wanting her.

“She’s my life, Jake. It’s like I was just walking through life in a fog until her, and now I see everything crystal clear. She’s put everything into focus for me. My life doesn’t work without her.”

Sweet baby Jesus! See what I’m talking about?!

Ok, I’ll try to restrain my Mac fan-girling now and say it was in incredible to see all the Seduction gang, and they give us some fantastic in depth moments, and a lot of hilarious ones (poor Riley, lol), and some heartwarming scenes. The side plot is well developed, and I loved how it flowed naturally without stealing from the unforgettable love story! Kat and Mac were perfect together and I can’t wait to see more of their future in the upcoming books! And that snippet makes me wonder, who comes next? Mia or Riley? It can go both ways, and I want more Fusion NOW!!!

“I love you, but even those words seem too simple to describe how I feel about you. It’s an ache, right here in my chest, but it’s an ache that you don’t want to end. I look at you, and I’m calm. I hold you and I’m complete.

 “Loving you, Kat, is like coming home, and it’s better than any other feeling I’ve ever had.”

“Loving you is what calms me in the storm, Mac. It’s the safest thing I’ve ever done.”

“As long as we’re together, it doesn’t matter the pace. It’s the journey, not the destination.”

Synopsis

Book I of III

A tale tells of a baby girl being born from a vampire and his human bride. She would be the sign that all would never be the same again. The wars would come to a bloody end and they would rule in peace.

Three hundred years of waiting for an answer to their problem had worn on the soul of Falcon Lombardi. and his best friend Draco Romano. The pain and guilt of the past etched in their hollow hearts. Both men spent their lives working to make things right, however nothing had truly changed in all that time. Disillusioned and left empty, neither of them expected the end of the dark to come from a trip to the theater.

How could something so twenty-first century fix the woes of a seventeenth century curse?

This is not a standalone.

Header Bound

When I first heard that C. M. Steele, one of my ‘auto-read’ authors, was releasing her first full length novel, I was beyond excited, because as she is known for her insta-love/lust, and specially her OTT obsessed alpha, I couldn’t wait to see how that would translate into a lengthier, vampire ‘supernatural’ world, and I have to say she surpassed my expectations, since she gives us much more than that.

In Bound, the author created an amazing and original setting, where the vampiristic war, the Lamian Wars, is always present in the background for all the story and working as connecting line and enrichment in perfect harmony with the love story, or stories, in this case.

This first installment introduces us to the The Lamian Wars well thought out universe and its main characters, Falcon and Draco, and Leonora and Charlotte. Coincidently – or nor so much, lol – each others best friends, but with four centuries of separation.

Since the tragedy that struck his family, the royals of his kind, Falcon Lombardi has been living a life of solitude (expect for for his best friend, Draco Romano) and his apparently endless search for a cure for his people, until one day, after nearly four hundred years of wait his mate finally crosses his path.

She was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. It must be why it took so long to find her. That much perfection was centuries in the making.

Of course there were some basic obstacles – besides the bigger ones – like her human nature, her despicable parents and the matter of his vampirism, but all is easy solved because they were united on the most primary level, they are soulmates, they are bounded.

My mate didn’t know it yet, but she was bound to me. She was my other half, the missing piece I’ve waited many lifetimes for.

Since she also felt it on a cellular level, the chemistry, the connection, it was easy for Leonora to accept her fate and his (and now hers) nature, and all that came with it.

I didn’t deserve her, but I wouldn’t give her back. She was mine for eternity if not longer.

But Bound isn’t only about Falcon and Leonora, so when Draco discovers that Leonora’s best friend is his other half, he was overjoyed. And his reactions, thoughts as well as Charlie’s were delightful to read, and gave a new dynamic to the storyline. These heroes sure know how to treat their leading ladies. Their love and care really shone trough, and we truly feel like they are the most precious thing in the world for them. Completely swoon-worthy. 

And of course, their obsession sure spiced this love and their relationship. Who doesn’t love a good OTT obsessed, protective and possessive alpha that needs his love like the air to breathe?! <3

“You’re crazy,” I whispered, my head tilting and inching closer to his.
“For you, I am. And there’s no cure for it, so you’ll just have to deal with it.”

Both love stories are for me equally enticing, and their sex scenes, for four unexperienced people, sure are off the charts, scorchingly HOT!!! And that back story, the action and suspense and that ending!!! It was fantastic, and I want the next one now!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“I love you, Falcon.” That was the first time she said that, and it felt like it was more than just the vampire connection. It felt sincere and danced along my spine. I’d waited for those words. They were human words and meaningless to most vampires, but she was special to me, and from her those words were honest and pure.
“I love you so uncontrollably. It’s more than just being bound.”

Synopsis

For three years, I’ve belonged to Julius King. 

Some people would think being stuck on a private island is heaven, but this is my hell.  

Because I’m not here as a guest. Not even close. I’m a prisoner. I’m his. 

Julius King. Powerful. Wealthy. Dangerous. 

There are parts of me he wants that I can’t give him. When he looks at me, there are times I swear he sees someone else. And the scary part is that sometimes, when he touches me, I think he may be someone else, too. 

Though my body might be tempted, and he might control everything else, I can’t let him have any piece of my heart. I won’t. But every day, the fight gets harder, and Julius manages to slip past my defenses in the most unexpected ways.  

I have to find out the truth about Julius King. Even if it destroys me.

Excerpt

Excerpt 2


A man stands in the driveway behind the roses. My steps slow. Haven’t seen him before. There’d be no forgetting him.
He watches me approach, hands in pockets of gray suit pants, almost as though he’s been waiting all morning for me to come to him. I stop, the wide branches of a rose bush separate us. He slides off sunglasses, and tucks them into his inside breast pocket. My attention follows his hand, catching on his open shirt collar. There’s a tattoo springing from that shirt. A snake head rising like a coil of smoke out of the green leaves of an apple tree. Never seen ink like this. Unsettling and beautiful. I catch my breath. Must have walked faster than I thought.
“Sorry I’m late.”
I get stuck on his eyes. They’re so bright, it’s tricky to look right at them. I’m staring. I probably shouldn’t stare at a man like this.
He breaks free a rose low on a stem, then circles the bush. “Happy birthday.”
He extends the rose. It’s so gorgeous, this frilly antique rose, half cream and tinged with pink. It’s also my rose already.
Of course.
Benjamin Carlisle…
I look him over. He’s big, and rough, and the sight of him sends warmth fluttering to my core. I’m not pissed at Dad so much anymore.
I take the rose between thorns. I mean, I’m not planning the wedding, but I’ll be up tonight imagining the honeymoon.
“So, you’re late to my party, and instead of bringing a gift you mutilate my favorite rosebush right in front of me.” I bring the rose to my nose and look up at him. “Takes balls.”
His expression shifts, not quite a smile. He’s examining me a lot harder than I examined him. Heat creeps to my cheeks.
Maybe he came here under duress. Flirt with the spoiled rich girl with the important daddy. But he’s changing his mind about wanting to be here. The rose in my hand tells me as much.
The way his gaze sucks me in tells me more.
I’ve been called pretty since I was a kid. No one ever called me sexy. He’s calling me sexy right now, just not out loud. Seduction enters his expression in the squint of his gaze, the softening of his jaw. Nearly enough to make a good girl strip on the spot.
And I’m not even much of a good girl. At least not by choice.
“I’m Sarah.” I extend my hand.
His entire being shifts—a flinch like someone taking a bullet—then it’s gone. He takes my hand before I can move it away.
“I don’t think I’m going to call you that.”
My limbs stiffen. Tingles run from my enveloped palm into my shoulder. His eyes don’t leave mine. He steps closer.
My chin rises to hold his gaze. “What do you think you’ll be calling me, then?”
His expression heats. My spine bends a little towards him. No man has ever looked at me quite like this.
My skin sensitizes, alert as though it’s separate from the rest of my body. There’s sweat on my upper lip and a chill on my shoulders.
He reaches for me, fingers on the back of my neck, thumb on my jaw.
It’s an odd way to touch a stranger—proprietary.
Inappropriate.
My breath speeds up, a nervous thrill jolting through me.
His cheek pulses, and his fingers tighten on the back of my head, his expression straining like he’s lifting weights. I can’t tell if he’s going to kiss or attack me.
My vision sharpens, and I know the wicked truth.
I want both.
Want him to press me up behind the house and raise my skirt. Touch me roughly. He leans in and his breath meets mine, and rushes into my lungs.
My pussy floods, an almost embarrassing slickness.
The taste of his breath is as familiar to me as my own, even though we’ve never met. Maybe because I’ve fantasized about this for so long.
His burning gaze seems to compel my thighs open.
Fantasized about a man who wouldn’t be afraid to take what he wanted. Who wouldn’t care what my father thought. Who’d take me from this ranch where I’ve been so fucking alone…
“Sarah.”
I jerk back, out of Benjamin’s grasp.
Dad jogs towards us. He doesn’t jog—ever. He rarely calls me Sarah. “Go sit with Mrs. Carlisle.”
Dad’s entire torso expands with his breaths. “You…What are you doing?”
“Julius King,” says the man who’s apparently not Benjamin Carlisle.
He eases back from me only slightly, but his body language has shifted light years. The way his jaw snaps is vicious. He doesn’t extend his hand to Dad the way he did me. “I thought it was time we met in person. Our business won’t be delayed any longer.”
“Sarah, I said go sit with Mrs. Carlisle.” Dad’s face matches the crimson of his neck.
I look between the men, then take a step towards the garden.
Julius grabs my arm, just above the elbow, almost like the way I’d taken my dad’s earlier, except there’s no affection in this gesture. “I’ll join you. It was quite the drive to get here and I’m thirsty.”
He leads me towards the tables.
“You can’t be here,” Dad shouts. “What are you doing?”
My legs turn brittle, as though my muscles have lost elasticity. I glance over my shoulder at Dad.
“What does it look like, I’m joining the party.”

About the Author

Kristin Ashley - headshot

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

Header Little Black Dress

What a wonderful anthology that besides being for fantastic cause, really touch all the right spots of the Romance genre! 

It’s always hard for me to review anthologies, specially because I rarely go through all the stories given my literary ‘pickiness’, but this Little Black Dress really was the exception. All the stories got me hooked in the most diverse ways, and I adored the fluidity to which we go from one story to the other. The only thing missing for me even considering the short length of the stories  – and the reason for this not being a full five stars – was the lack of at least an hint of an ‘epilogue’, maybe just a statement/paragraph into the couples future, perhaps even in the adjoining story. That really was the only point, because apart from that it was perfect!

The LBD really was a natural and thought out connection between all the storylines, and goes to show that no matter the kind of girl you are, a Little Black Dress always hits the spot – in this case, literally!!! 😉

ABBY’S ANGELS – SARAH O’ROURKE

The perfect start for this anthology! 

I adored Abbigail and Whitlock’s story! For me it’s incredible refreshing reading a story about a married couple, and specially one as devoted and loving as these two.

Because while Abby hadn’t been his first lover, he’d known the moment he tasted her lips for the first time that she would be his last.  She’d be his everything.  Until he took his last breath.

Their story touched me deeply, and the serious and in depth issues of their married life couldn’t have been more beautifully written or had a more dreamy outcome. But rest assured that just because were talikng about a couple on a decade old marriage doesn’t mean any less steam. Quite the contrary! Who knew an apparently uptight and by-the-book college professor could be such a dirty talker?! These two really burn down the sheets, it’s a wonder how the lucky little black dress survived to pass along to Lucy!!!

 “You know damn well that after months of celibacy, the last thing I want to do is waste my cum by exploding in your hand.  It belongs inside you.  Deep, deep inside you, Abby girl,”

lbd-teaser-dont-let-me-down

LUCY’S A DREAMER – BRYNNE ASHER

After a more serious uptake on a relationship, Brynne Asher gives us a more light hearted and humorous version of one with Lucy – Abigail’s free spirited younger sister.

Vaughn had been her teenager crush, her brother’s best friend, her dream man, so when she wakes up next to him after a torrid night of incredible sex, let’s just say that that her flighty nature takes over. But worry not, because Vaughn knows exactly how to handle that.

You can bet this fine ass the first possible moment I can get you alone, I’ll be working on your feng and your shui.

OMG, these two really gave us some laughing out loud moments, specially Vaughn, which surprised me in the best of ways. Who can resist a man who knows what he wants and doesn’t allow any obstacle – specially in the shape of a big brother – to stop him from getting it, or in this case her?! 

 “Never wanted anything as much as you.”

In the end Lucy realizes that there’s no point in avoiding confrontation or fighting the unavoidable, because sometimes, it’s more than worth it, and dreams do come true!!!

 You’re my dream, Vaughn Isaac Rowe.  I’ll never want anyone but you.”
 Just so you know, you’re the best thing I never knew to dream.”

 

lbd-teaser-blame-all-on-the-dress

KISS ME, KATIE – SARAH CURTIS

I seriously adore this trope! What is it about two people in love/lust for one another and doing patrol together in a small police car that pushes my buttons?! Don’t really know the reason, but it totally works for me!

Katie and Ethan have been working alongside as partners for over six months. Six months where they got deeper and deeper under the other’s skin, and fell in love. The problem was that both were afraid to loose they well earned friendship, and that the other didn’t reciprocate their feelings. 

The golden opportunity presented itself to Ethan when Katie asked him to pretend to be her boyfriend. He accepted, of course, but pretending was the furthest thing from his mind…

“You’re not going to give me a tour of your house first?”
“You’ll get your tour when I fuck you in every room.”

One kiss, one touch was enough to explode their repressed desire for one another, and from that moment on, there was no turning back. Not that any of them wanted to. LOL

 “No, sweetheart, wrong fairy tale.  You’re the enchanting Siren, luring this captivated fool to his untimely death with your tempting song.”

Loved both the main characters, but Ethan thoughts really were a special brand of sexy and steamy deliciousness!

 “Six fucking very long months of watching you,” his face drew closer, “wanting you,” closer, “waiting for you, ’til I fucking needed you more than my next breath.”

 

lbd-teaser-happy-satisfied

WINNIE MAE – LAYLA FROST

Layla Frost really creates the sassiest, strongest and funniest female main character, and Winnie is proof to that! 

“Yes, it keeps me busy. But that’s what I like. I’m a doer, you know?”
It was a massive lie. I was a sleeper.

But even the totally kickass, deeply independent and sexual uninhibited Winnie can catch the surprise of her life after a supposed one night stand, an unforgettable one at that,  when against all odds, and internal struggle, it becomes so much more than that. 

After an apparently successful  and regretful ruse, the problem was coming clean and showing her true colors. What she had no idea was that her shiny personality shone through no matter the elaborate artifice.

“I think you’re perfect as you are,” I said. “Minus the Cinderella act. Although, I think she left a glass slipper behind, and not undies.”

Who knew she was the one getting the shock of revelation, because Max – one sexy devil, btw –  only ever saw the true Winnie, and there’s was no doubt that he more than liked what he saw!!! 

And that office sex scene… SCORCHING!!!

“I love having your actual hands on me. My imagination is a poor fucking substitute.”

LAYLA FROST

Layla Frost has always been a rebel. A true badass.

Growing up, Layla used to hide under her blanket with a flashlight to read the Sweet Valley High books she pilfered from her older sister. It wasn’t long before she was reading hidden Harlequins during class at school. This snowballed into pulling all-nighters after the promise of “just one more chapter”.

Her love of reading, especially the romance genre, took root early and has grown immeasurably.

In between reading and writing, Layla spends her free time rocking out(at concerts, on the couch, in the car… Anywhere is a stage if you get into it enough), watching TV(the nerdier the better!), and being a foodie. Though she lives in NY(the state, not the city), she’s an avid Red Sox fan.

I’m Sarah Curtis (that’s a pseudonym of my kids’ names). I’m a 47 year-old mother of two, grandma of 2 and live with my husband of 30 years in Southern California.

I write steamy contemporary romance novels about sexy alpha males and the heroines who steal their hearts.

I’m addicted to coffee, Red Bull, Lay’s potato chips, and ice cream. When I’m not writing (which is hardly ever, hence the addiction to coffee and Red Bull) I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and watching football (Go Pack Go).

IMG_2041

Synopsis

Ethan Hades falls into the god category . . . though the myths surrounding Hades are far different than the truth of who he really is. God of the Underworld is just one of his many responsibilities. After spending centuries alone, a scapegoat for anything and everything that goes wrong in the world, he’s given up on life. He gave up on love way before that.

Until one day a woman he can’t ignore walks into his life. They have nothing in common—that she’s mortal being is only one of the many differences between them. Holland Corbin is everything Ethan has been waiting an eternity to find. One problem—she’s hell-bent on keeping him as far away from her as possible and looks at him like he’s the devil himself. Which, okay, she has good instincts.

He might have to move heaven and hell to get her to accept and admit her feelings for him. He might have to forfeit his own infinite existence to be with her. He might have to stand in contempt of the only set of laws he’s ever followed. But he will. He’d give everything to be with her, and he just might be forced to pay that exact price.

He’s damned either way. Might as well go out fighting for the woman he loves.

Excerpt

Somewhere between the myth and reality was where you’d find the truth. But you wouldn’t see it if you weren’t looking, and most people weren’t.

   Most people were content to believe what they wanted to believe, as opposed to the alternative—accepting what was actually real.

   Take me for instance. There was the myth of who I was, and there was the truth. My first name was Ethan—a perfectly everyday name—but it’s not the name I was given at birth. No, that name I used as a last name now, as a reminder of who I was. Not that I could forget. My reputation seemed to precede me in every life I lived, not because people knew who I really was or would believe me if I told them, but because they knew something was different about me. Something was to be avoided.

   They were right.

   “Ethan Hades.”

   So yeah. Bet you didn’t need twenty guesses to figure out who I was—who I really was. Yes, gods were real. No, we weren’t anything like the myths you’d grown up reading in school. Names, places, and rough ideas were about the only details the Greeks had gotten right. The rest was a bunch of fabricated rubbish. I

    rose from the tiny canvas stool that lined the outside of the medical tent, my legs not the least bit tired from holding a chair squat for the past twenty minutes while I’d waited for the new camp doc, who was not earning any points from me since he was running late. I had stuff to do. Stuff that didn’t include waiting on a scrap of fabric that would have been lucky to hold a mortal man of my size. That was another fun fact for the god/goddess trivia book—we weighed significantly more than a mortal the same stature. It had something to do with our bodies being solid muscle, and nothing like the kind of muscle humans possessed. Our muscles were heavier, stronger, and impenetrable—fitting since we were immortal beings.

    I didn’t say anything as the nurse lifted the tent curtain for me. Neither did she. She’d been trying to get into my bed since she’d first started her rotation a few months ago. I’d told her I hadn’t signed up with World Corps, and traveled to third world countries on various outreach missions, to get laid. I’d been nice about it. The first dozen times. The last dozen, I’d been curter with my replies, which might have explained the reason she was looking at me like she wanted to drive a scalpel through my eye.

   Good luck with that. Immortal being. Meaning cannot die. By scalpel to the cornea or any other method.

   Believe me, I’d put it to the test.

   The landscape directly below Frenchman’s Cliff would never be the same. It looked like some meteor had fallen there, carving a crater where the ground had been level before my attempt to challenge my immortal state of being.

 
 
 

Header Ethan Hades

 

Now here was something I had never read until now!!! Kat Austen sure gave us something new and refreshing, because I read PLENTY about history of all Gods in multiple religions, specially this one, of Ancient Greece, but never before in a smutty sweetness point of view, and wasn’t that the most delicious surprise!!!

Ethan Hades is every bit of arrogant and all things HOT that he’s truly entitle to be – he is after all the god of the underworld, lol – but upon meeting the straight laced, pragmatic and workaholic Dr. Holland Corbin, that apparently doesn’t bat an eyelash to him – first time ever for him – let’s just say he’s taken down a peg or two… Ok, not really!!!

He instantly feels that Holland is special to him somehow, and the more he analyzes those feelings the more he realizes that she may be his One! 

There’s just one obstacle, – since he has no doubt that he’ll make Holland fall in love with him, lol – her mortality. But for her he’s willing to give up everything, even his own imortality and power!

Holland of course tried to resist the best she could, but come on, really, it was a lost battle, because it was a lost battle from the start, because honestly, who could resist a freakin’ god?!

It was a deliciously little read, with some of-the-charts, turn-on-your-fans sex scenes and a sugary sweet insta-love story to leave feeling warm and tingly in all the right places. The only down and hence why a didn’t give it my usual Kat Austen five smutty stars, was the question of her mortality against his immortality and how it was solved – or unsolved – in the end. This is after all fiction at its best so instead of that epilogue, that was bittersweet and left me kind of sad, I wanted a full on Happy Ever After in all its glory were all the potential and escapism from our realities was present and these two got something that would reveal the beauty of Romance fiction, a splenderous HEA!

Nonetheless, it was a true, and addictive as usual, Kat Austen fantastic short read! I can’t wait for the next! Are we going to get any more of these gods?! I sure hope so! And maybe will see a bit more of Holland and Ethan?! Fingers crossed!!! 

“What have you been waiting for?”
 His brows knitted together, his look suggesting I was missing something. “You,” he breathed like it was a prayer. “I’ve been waiting for you.”
