TOO CLOSE TO CALL - cover

Synopsis

All-American wide receiver Kyler Tate’s life is about to change. A fairytale college career skyrocketed him to the NFL draft. Adoration and opportunity are thrown in his direction wherever he goes, thanks to being chosen in the first round by the Los Angeles Rage.

None of the accolades mean anything, though, without his high school sweetheart, Bree Sutton, by his side. Four years ago, she walked away from Kyler, choosing a quiet life over the flash and notoriety his career would someday bring.

Now he’s back in their Indiana hometown, refusing to leave for Los Angeles without her. Demanding she give their life together a shot. Her heart never stopped bleeding for the love of her life, but Bree’s decision was final. Too bad their wild attraction has only been amplified by their separation, and Kyler won’t quit until Bree is wearing his ring.

 

Excerpt

“Bree.” Her blood snapped with electricity at the sound of her name, said in that low drawl. Kyler stepped to the forefront of the crowd. The green eyes that still graced her dreams zeroed in, raking over her like they couldn’t help it.

Heaven above, four years looked incredible on him. Extra inches had been added everywhere. His height. The athletic breadth of his shoulders. The corded biceps that tested the stitching of his T-shirt sleeves. Even his thighs, which were wrapped up in faded denim, were exploding with muscle; thighs she’d spent a good portion of her youth perched on since Kyler never allowed her to sit anywhere but his lap, no matter where they were or whether it was appropriate. “Hello.”

“Hello,” she whispered. “You’re in town.”

His slow nod was so familiar a ripple moved through her. “Here for the week. Can I get you that coffee?”

“No.” She flushed over her own abruptness. “I meant to say, I can’t stay. I’m going to be late for an appointment.”

“Fine. I’ll walk you out.”

His expression dared her to say no. Challenged her. And for the first time since Kyler left, sexual awareness danced in her middle, sending a swift tremble down the length of her legs. Because her body hadn’t forgotten what often lay on the other side of those challenges. “Fine,” she breathed. “Suit yourself.”

For all his sexual energy, Kyler was a gentleman, straight down to the soles of his feet. So Bree wasn’t one bit surprised when his long gait ate up the distance between them. He reached over her head to push open the glass door, sending his scent crashing into her senses, the combination so familiar, Bree’s nipples tightened until she winced. Grassy fields and Nautica Blue aftershave.

Their gazes clashed, but Bree couldn’t decide if he’d worn the scent on purpose. His steady eyes gave nothing away. Before hers could betray her curiosity, Bree turned and passed through the door Kyler held open. And hell if it wasn’t the longest walk in history, his presence behind her looming larger than a mountain. Every eyeball in the diner was sure to be on them and the attention made Bree twitchy, her fingers yanking on the strings of her hoodie.

She needed to get this reunion over with as soon as possible. Being around Kyler would only make her wonder what might have been. That kind of thinking was pointless. Destructive.

Back in high school, the writing had been on the wall when it came to Kyler. Everyone knew he’d been destined for greatness. That he would shake off Bloomfield and put his name in the history books. She’d been selfish to stay with him for so long, absorbing his love and attention, all the while knowing she’d wave good-bye to him someday. The decision was a painful one, but it had been made and now she would stick to it.

 

Header Too Close too Call 1

Tessa Bailey complete and utterly blew my mind with Too Close To Call. Talk about the PERFECT second chance romance! With Kyler and Bree’s story, Ms. Bailey proved how a novella could pack a whole world of feelings, that normally we relate to a full length novel. Too Close to Call was the perfect emotional and sexy punch to add to this already amazing series. So much so, that it became my favorite of the Romancing The Clarkson series!

We met Kyler in Too Hard to Forget – but fear not, if you haven’t read the previous one, you can still enjoy and understand the whole plot – where we got a glimpse of his broken heart, and the love he still had for Bree, his high school sweetheart.

Truth be told, she was so much more than that. So, when Kyler comes to a pillar moment in his professional career, he realizes he needs Bree to really live.

Bree didn’t want to break Kyler’s – and her – heart, four years prior, but she couldn’t leave her hometown and family behind, for a very valid reason, to follow their dreams. So, she had to break them up, and stay behind, setting Kyler free to pursue him football career. She thought time would heal them both, but a love like that can’t be forgotten. 

Fast forwarding four years, after Kyler’s big revelation, he decides to go get his girl, and he won’t take no for answer, and won’t leave his hometown without her.

No one spoke, moved, smiled, smelled like her.

“And you were the exception. Not the other way around. That’s why I brought flowers and shook your daddy’s hand at the door. I knew there’d never be another Bree Justice.”

I have to say Kyler went straight to my top 3 fav Tessa Bailey heroes! This man, even in is young age is EVERYTHING!!! I’m talking full on swoon-worthy, panty-melting, heart-thumping, sigh-inducing male material here. No wonder Bree never even though of moving on. With a man like this, who could forget?

Jesus, he loved her. Couldn’t she see it? That he would never love another woman as long as they both lived?

No other woman had ever elicited the smallest percentage of his body’s reaction to Bree. Not ever. No one ever would, either, because his heart was connected to every part of him. His heart knew what it wanted and it wouldn’t waver.

“Bree,” he croaked, pressure pushing inward on his skull. “Fuck, Bree. I almost died from missing you.”
“I’m sorry. I’m sorry.”

See what I meant? Perfect male character! And all this loyalty and devotion, coupled with the most delicious and smoking hot package, Bree didn’t stand a chance to deny him.

Kyler had so many ledges, cuts, and bulges of muscle, Bree had the urge to strap on a harness and scale him like a rock climbing wall.

But even so, Bree’s fears and doubt remained the same, even after this time apart, so Tyler knew he had to use every single weapon in his arsenal to be able to convince Bree to give them another chance. He wouldn’t accept no for an answer, when it came to their life together.

“I’ve loved you as far back as my memory reaches. I will never fucking stop. I came to town for one damn reason, Bree. So I could leave here with my wife. You.”

Of course with a palpable, scorchingly HOT chemistry and magnetism like their, there wasn’t much Bree could deny. She was unable to resist it or Kyler filthy-talking mouth, that, FYI, it should come with a warning. Yes, we are talking about Tessa Bailey here, the ‘Queen of Dirty Talking’, but seriously, O…M…G!!!!!

“Had to find a different spot every week because we’d wear the grass down to nothing. From fucking on top of it. Wouldn’t we, Bree?”

“We never did this quietly, did we?”
 Kyler’s voice sounded just as unnatural as hers when he responded. “A man can’t stay silent when he’s wrapped up in something so tight.”

“What other mercies can I earn from you today?” Kyler rasped. “If you’ve already forgotten how I beg for that mercy, my tongue is dying to show you.”

And these are just three examples, because believe me, I feel like I highlighted most of the book, either due to his wicked mouth or his heartfelt declarations! I seriously recommend this book to every romance reader out there. I couldn’t have loved it any more, and I can say it, with how particular I am with second chance stories, that I wouldn’t change a single word. It was written perfection! In this short read we go through all the feels and all the emotions, and by the end you’ll be guaranteed to have a warm heart, a delicious tingling throughout your body and a happy buzz that will no soon leave. Now I’m more than ready for Belmont and Sage’s story, Too Beautiful to Break. Can’t wait!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“What about what you want?”
 “I want us,” he rasped. “I’ll build everything else around that. That has been my plan since age thirteen. It just got delayed.”

Commitment was in the way they looked at one another. Not a damn thing, especially some days apart, could test their bond. It was airtight.

About the Author

Tessa Bailey - headshot

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 eight years and four-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.

Excerpt

Draft Day was nothing like Kyler had pictured.

“With the ninth pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Los Angeles Rage select…” Kyler Tate’s parents sucked in breaths on either side of him. “Kyler Tate, receiver, University of Cincinnati.”

The tense atmosphere inside the event hall exploded with wild cheers, exclamations, and boos. His shoulders were slapped by thousands of hands, kisses landing on his cheeks. Like falling out of a kayak into a rushing current, bashing into rocks on the way toward a waterfall, Kyler stood, put his head down, and proceeded toward the stage. Cell phones rang at every table he passed, terse conversations taking place as the deadline timer for the next announcement started. Players he’d faced on the gridiron sweated in their suits, mothers fussed, water glasses were refilled.

This was it. Years of training, icing down injuries, two-a-day practices, glory, pain, and mental fatigue. All for this moment.

And it was…utterly fucking incomplete.

Before he could reach the stage, panic set in. Set in real good, like claws digging into fertile ground. A moment earlier, everyone in the room had looked familiar, but they were strangers now, spinning in a kaleidoscope. Sweat popped up on his forehead. His shoulder blades tightened, a harsh sound puffed from between his lips. From behind the podium, the announcer gave him a strange look, the Rage jersey lowering in his grip. Are you okay?

The man’s mouthed words barely penetrated over the sudden rushing stream of images. Of her. Bree Justice.

Synopsis
 

A determined alpha + An unsuspecting wallflower = A sexy surprise!

Seth Bashar carries the weight of the shifter world on his shoulders as the head of their council. Or at least it’s felt that way ever since he attempted the impossible—uniting witches and shifters. As he tries to maintain the delicate balance, finding his fated mate is more vital than ever.

Jane Smith has no responsibilities to anyone but herself. Finally. She’s more than happy to fade into the woodwork. When her favorite customer, Gerri Wilder, insists on setting her up on a blind date, she reluctantly agrees.

It was only supposed to be a harmless night of fun… until it was more. Until he was everything.

Excerpt

The bell above the door to the shop announced the arrival of another customer, and my breath froze in my lungs when I glanced up and saw the man walking towards me. He was most definitely a shifter—tall, dark, and handsome. Screw handsome, he was more than that. He was downright gorgeous. Thick, black hair. A chiseled jaw covered with scruff. Plump lips that I could too easily picture trailing down my naked skin. Broad shoulders, tapered waist, and long legs that quickly ate up the space between us. He was easily a half foot taller than my five feet nine inches. I felt downright dainty standing in front of him.

He looked completely out of place in the store; the proverbial bull in a china shop. That didn’t stop me from having to fight the urge to leap over the counter and into his arms, though. My wolf pushed for control, and it was a struggle I hadn’t felt in years. I’d been keeping her on a tight leash—one she’d seemed content to stay on. Until now. Until him.

I spotted the brown paper bag in his hand, and realization dawned. “Gerri sent you?”

“Yes,” he rasped.

I eyed him up and down, taking in the way the black material of his shirt was stretched taut by his muscles and how his jeans molded his legs. Looking at him, it was impossible to argue that my vibrator was getting the job done. Not when he was an alternative.

“Wow,” I breathed out. “You’re the guy she wants to set me up on a blind date with?”

 

Header Ask For The Moon

 

OMG, I am one happy camper today! You really can’t imagine my happiness when Rochelle announced this new novella and then when this little gem hit my e-reader!

Ask For The Moon already had the winning formula from the get go, by being one of Rochelle’s PNR and being part of the Paranormal Dating Agency world. Two of my all time favs combined. I really couldn’t have asked for more, right?! Well I sure got it anyway, because it was otherworldly GOOD!!!

Seth, the head of the shifter council is pushed to seek his fated mate through the amazing Gerri (PDA), and fate works its ways when Gerri herself tries for the lonely she-wolf, Jane, to allow her to use her services to end Jane’s self imposed ‘isolation’.

Well, we all know how fast Gerri works but here it was a light-speed pairing. It proves how they were indeed fated! <3

“I’m your fated mate. You don’t need to worry about being weak around me. I’ll be your strength whenever you need it.”

Seth is sure to melt your heart – and panties – with all his alpha deliciousness, and Jane reveals a hidden fragility (and reason for it) but blossoms under Seth utter love and devotion. Seth, absolutely swoon-worthy that he is,  proves he will do everything to make her happy and they do indeed have their happy ever after! I loved this super sweet and steaming hot little novella, and it just left wanting Carrick’s book even more!!! Totally addicted to Rochelle’s PNR (ok, and all other tropes too!)!!!    <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“I’d accomplished a lot in my life—becoming the alpha of my pack, joining the shifter council, and ascending to the role as their head. But none of it compared to what I’d gained that day, my fully claimed mate.”

Synopsis

Love is for suckers.

That’s always been Hudson Farrow’s take on it. His mother has practically made a career out of saying I do, which is why he’s found himself in another upstate town, preparing to watch her walk down the aisle with another yacht club asshole, nursing his cynicism with Scotch at another lonely dive bar. A sassy siren that sets his blood on fire wasn’t part of the plan, neither was a new stepsister, and now Hudson’s a man with a problem because he’s just found out they’re one in the same.

Skylar Walsh never thought the one and only man she’s ever brought home would turn into anything beyond a few orgasms. Until six-foot-four, sinfully sexy, talented and tattooed sweeps her off her feet–and right between his thighs–on his custom Harley. When Hudson demands her phone number before the night’s over she knows she’s in for a wild ride. When she runs into him at her father’s wedding the next day she realizes she may have just made the biggest mistake of her life. A dozen sheet-clenching, toe-curling, and soul-shatteringly good times in the last twenty-four hours.

Warning: Hudson is hellbent on his Sky, and he won’t let a little thing like I do come between them. Filthy-sweet tattooed hearts, perfectly placed piercings that hit all the right spots, and love and fate inked so deep no force can keep them apart. Hold onto your hearts because Stepbrother Anonymous stole mine! xo Aria

Excerpt

“Oh, I see what’s going on here.” He patted my ass cheek. “You’re only spontaneous with a little Scotch in your system.” He winked.
“What?” I narrowed my eyes. “No, I’m just cautious.”
“Boring.” He arched an eyebrow.
“I prefer to think before I act.”
“Predictable.”
My cheeks flamed with anger. “And I don’t normally fuck strangers.”
His eyebrows shot up, that word eliciting the shock from him I’d wanted. “But…” His fingers slid between the cheeks of my ass, hovering so close I was preparing myself for his intrusion. “Best fuck of your life, right?”
My mouth popped open just as his finger made contact with the little rosebud of my ass, swirling and stretching until the tip was breaching me. “Oh God.”
He didn’t reply, only worked his finger against my asshole, sinking it a little deeper before I was full and overtaken by need, completely aching and desperate for more. Desperate for anything.
“I dare you to tell me it wasn’t the best, Skylar.” His other hand was working at the wet flesh of my pussy. “Because last night was fucking mind-blowing for me, and I know I’m not the only one who felt it. That pussy of yours was gushing like goddamn Niagara Falls. Your lips may be able to deny it, but that sweet, juicy cunt of yours was begging for my cock. You loved how full it felt with me inside you.”

Synopsis

Fiona Lamb has lost everything, and her only option is to work for a reclusive billionaire to get back the one thing that’s most important to her.

Reid Gold has been cursed. He’s the alpha shifter, but he’s unable to change into his wolf and lead his pack. But one scent of his mate and everything changes.

Warning: This beauty and the beast-inspired story is quick, filthy, and over-the-top alpha. Hold on to your Kindles because Reid’s inner beast finally gets to come out and play.

 

 

Excerpt

CHAPTER 1


*Fiona*

 

“Miss Lamb, Mr. Blackden is ready for you.”
I look up at the woman who has been watching me from the corner of her eye since I walked into Blackden Law Firm thirty minutes ago. I don’t blame her. I’m a mess and out of place against the elegant interior of the law firm. I know this, but I just can’t find the will to care. All I want is for this to be finished. I need to take the next step in my life and try to move on, if not for myself then for my grandma.

I told her I’d be okay and that I wouldn’t let my grief drag me down.
My grandma was buried yesterday, but final decisions on her estate had to be made. I’m here for one thing, and one thing alone. I pray there’s enough money from the sale of our home and antiques my grandma left me to cover the bill from the hospital. There is only one thing I want from all of this, and that’s the rose ring.

I want it more than anything. My grandma never took the ring off her finger since my grandpa put it there when he asked her to marry him. When I was little she’d tell me about their love as a bedtime story. Then when she got sick it was my turn to tell her the story as she lay in bed fighting for her life.

Even then I knew she was only fighting to stay with me. She didn’t want to leave me all alone in the world. I don’t remember my parents. The only family I had ever known were my grandma and grandpa, but in my eyes, they were my parents. They raised me, kept me safe, and made me feel loved. She and my grandpa were the only people I had and we’d lost him five years ago. Then it was just the two of us. But now she’s gone and I’m all alone.

I swallow the lump in my throat and stand. Reaching down, I grab my oversized bag that I’ve been carrying around since the auction. It’s all I have left. Everything else is gone.
The woman turns, heading down the long hallway, with her heels clicking on the marble with each step. She leads me to a set of double doors, the dark, carved wood gleaming. She grabs the handle and pulls one open for me. She motions for me to go in and nods as I pass.
“Thank you,” I mumble as I step through.

I hear the click of the door closing behind me as a man behind the desk on the other side of the room stands. I can see a small smile pull at his lips, but I can’t find it in me to smile back.

“Miss Lamb,” he says.

“Was there enough?” The words fall from my lips before I have a chance to think about it. And I’m not sure I care. That’s the only thing I need to know.

“Why don’t you have a seat?” He motions to one of the chairs in front of his desk, not answering my question.

I step forward, getting a better look at him. He doesn’t look like I thought he would. We talked on the phone a few times over the past weeks. His deep voice made me think he’d be a heavy-set man, but he isn’t. He’s thin and tall with brown hair and brown eyes. He gives me a bright smile, this time flashing his teeth. It makes me feel uncomfortable. Against my better judgment I do as he asks, even though I still want my answer more than anything. Something is wrong though. I can feel it.

I drop my bag next to the chair beside me, drawing Mr. Blackden’s eyes. I swear he smiles even more at the sight, and I want to shout at how unfair this all is. It’s nothing to smile at.
“We had to sell all of it, Miss Lamb.”

I close my eyes at his words and try to fight the tears. I nod, then begin to stand. What else is there to say? I don’t want to go over all the odds and ends of how everything was auctioned off. I want out of here. I want to find a cheap hotel for the night and let myself have a good cry.
Tomorrow I’ll pick myself up and see if I can get my old job back. I had to quit to be at my grandma’s side for the last few months, but I have to find something quick.

“But I can get it for you.” His deep voice penetrates my fog of sadness.
I freeze, my eyes snapping to his. He leans back in his chair, seemingly without a care in the world. He doesn’t go on. I feel as if he wants me to beg him, and to be honest, I will. I’m not above anything right now.

“How?” I ask, and he motions for me to sit back down. I drop down into the seat, but scoot to the edge.

“The ring was valued at $200,000,” he informs me. I gasp. “It had to be sold to cover the rest of the debts. Your grandmother had taken out a second mortgage on her home, and she also stated in her will to clear up any debt you had as well.”

I hang my head, my dark brown hair falling forward and shielding my face. I didn’t know she knew. I had run up some credit cards trying to make ends meet for us. I didn’t want her to know about them. I was going to take care of them later. It wasn’t something she needed to worry about.
“You said—”

“That I can get you the ring,” he finishes, sitting up in his chair. He grabs a folder and opens it. A large stack of papers sits inside it, clipped together.

“I have a job proposal for you. It’s a live-in job. You’d stay on the estate and assist the owner in anything he needs.”

“I’ll do it.” I stand up, grabbing a pen off the table. He turns the folder toward me, and I flip through the contract quickly to get to the last page. I see a place I need to sign, so I scratch my name on it quickly and toss the pen down.
When I look back up at Mr. Blackden, I watch as he grabs the papers from me, sliding them back into the folder.

“You smell fertile. Mr. Gold is going to be very pleased.”

I glance at the folder he has in his hand and wrinkle my brow in confusion. I have no idea what he’s talking about, but his words and the look on his face make me think that maybe I should have read that contract…

PERFECT ENDING FOR THE BEAUTY SERIES!!!

Of course these ladies had to keep the best of this deliciously naughty and enchanted series for last. This was the smuttiest and sweetest of these four beauty and the beast retold tales (don’t forget to see their first book with this theme in Owning The Beast).

I know I can always count on Alexa Riley to lift my spirits after a bit of heavier read. Their insta-love, equal parts sweet and filthy stories are a guaranteed cheer-me-up. And some of their OTT crazy lines manage always to crack me up, even when least expected.

She breathes a sigh of contentment when I release into her, like she’s burning and my cum is her aloe.

LMAO!!! They really are too much! But just the right thing for when you are looking for a very light and extra tingling read with some incredibly romantic loyal and caring characters. I love these fairy tales’ adaptations, and all this series – specially this last installment – hit just the right spot at the right time!!! Oh, and that perfect AR trademark epilogue… WOW<3 <3 <3 <3 <3

He’s my other half. I am his. I know it deep down inside me. I don’t know why or how, but I am. My soul has belonged to him since the beginning of time, and now we are meeting anew.

 “This is crazy,” I say in awe.
“No, this was fate. You were meant for me as I am meant for you.”

Synopsis

Love is for suckers.

That’s always been Hudson Farrow’s take on it. His mother has practically made a career out of saying I do, which is why he’s found himself in another upstate town, preparing to watch her walk down the aisle with another yacht club asshole, nursing his cynicism with Scotch at another lonely dive bar. A sassy siren that sets his blood on fire wasn’t part of the plan, neither was a new stepsister, and now Hudson’s a man with a problem because he’s just found out they’re one in the same.

Skylar Walsh never thought the one and only man she’s ever brought home would turn into anything beyond a few orgasms. Until six-foot-four, sinfully sexy, talented and tattooed sweeps her off her feet–and right between his thighs–on his custom Harley. When Hudson demands her phone number before the night’s over she knows she’s in for a wild ride. When she runs into him at her father’s wedding the next day she realizes she may have just made the biggest mistake of her life. A dozen sheet-clenching, toe-curling, and soul-shatteringly good times in the last twenty-four hours.

Warning: Hudson is hellbent on his Sky, and he won’t let a little thing like I do come between them. Filthy-sweet tattooed hearts, perfectly placed piercings that hit all the right spots, and love and fate inked so deep no force can keep them apart. Hold onto your hearts because Stepbrother Anonymous stole mine! xo Aria

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]

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

DO NOT READ before Jacked Up.
***MAJOR SPOILERS***

Nico Grabar, head of one of the most ruthless cartels in the world, is in the last stretch of a two-year nightmare, his agenda extremely busy. He has a criminal organization to run. A cover to maintain. A promise to fulfill. Too bad he’s bleeding to death in the middle of nowhere, about to meet his maker on a deserted street. A fitting ending to a bleak existence, really. When a beautiful Vintage bride with racoon eyes and a choke collar, covered from head to military boots in blood, came to him. It looked like the Grim Reaper had gotten a makeover just for him. What an honor.

Who finds a frigging drug lord in serious need of resuscitation while coming back from a bachelorette party at the wee hours? Paige, aka magnet for psychopaths, of course.
The Goth waitress at Rosita’s has already survived a major asshole, narrowly escaping with her life. The last she needs is to have to play Nightingale to a dangerous kingpin. What if he dies on her? Or worse; what if he doesn’t?

 

Excerpt

“I think that man is calling the cops on us,” Ronnie said, glancing through the window and waving.

Paige leaned against the steering wheel and smiled innocently at the driver in the next car, but it didn’t help. Eyes about to bug out of their sockets, he spoke even faster into his phone, while automatically locking the doors. “We are sooo ending up in jail.”

Who would have guessed people would be more scared of her clad in white than in her normal Goth clothes? Then again, she was wearing a wedding dress splattered with red, Carrie style, and Ronnie was too, so yeah, she could understand the horrified expression in the neighboring car. That they were driving at three o’clock in the morning through the Boston suburbs—makeup all smudged and hair in messy snarls of paint and party—didn’t improve matters.

“Probably,” Ronnie conceded, trying to pat her frizzy curls down. “You better floor it.”

No shit. When the light changed, Paige put the pedal to the metal and soon lost the spooked driver. Whichever came next, the arrest or the speeding ticket, she would let her lovely lunatic of a boss deal with it.

After all, their current predicament was entirely Elle’s fault. She’d declared her bachelorette party would happen in stages over a whole month, the coed paintball game being the first installment. As if the women hadn’t already been an easy mark for those testosterone-ridden, military-trained guys, Elle had made them wear thrift-store wedding gowns over the protective gear. Wrong move. Not even leveling the odds by mixing the teams had helped.

After the shooting fest, looking like vampire gore brides, they’d gone partying downtown. How Elle had gotten them into the club dressed like that, Paige didn’t know, although it shouldn’t have been a surprise. Elle always got her way. Now, with that ominous weapon of mass destruction called Jack shadowing her 24/7, it was a miracle anyone dared blink at her, regardless of how nuts her requests were.

All in all, a memorable first installment. Paige couldn’t wait to see what was to come. By Jack’s aggrieved looks, he couldn’t either.

Paige glanced at the rearview mirror. No spooked driver, no police cars chasing them. Just empty, quiet road. “We might avoid jail after all.”

“Jail would have been a fitting ending for the night. Can’t believe it didn’t happen before, at the club.”

“You seemed to hit it off with Kai,” Paige said. “How come I’m driving you home and he’s not? Not that I mind. Just curious.”

Ronnie laughed. “Didn’t you see the way Jack looked at him when we were talking? I didn’t want to give my brother a coronary. Besides, better not jinx it now that he’s more relaxed and all that crazy stuff about the drug cartel is over.”

And thank God for that. At the time, when Jack had suddenly started following Elle everywhere, Paige had not known what was going on. Then Elle had gone underground, and James Bowen, Elle’s brother-in-law, had gathered the staff of Rosita’s and informed them he was taking over management of the restaurant temporarily. From then on, there were 250-pound, heavily tattooed bodyguard types on the premises at all hours. In hindsight, no frigging wonder. It was not every day that you had a South American cartel gunning for you.

When all was said and done, Jack had almost lost his life rescuing Elle. Now, though, they were happily in love and about to get married. If the groom or the guests could survive the bachelorette party, that was.

“What about you?” Ronnie asked. “How come you’re driving me home and not with some sexy stranger? You were by far the prettiest bride, the way you Goth-customized the outfit.”

She shrugged. “No one tickled my fancy.”

The last guy who managed that feat had been one of the enforcers for said cartel. The second in command, as she later found out. He had come to Rosita’s to scout the place and had struck up a conversation with her. Nick, oil-rig worker, a reluctant participant on a blind date gone wrong. Extremely handsome, interesting, and easy-going, with a fascinating wit and a deep, husky voice, the man had almost convinced Paige to go out with him.

It figured that the lying psychopath would zero in on her. They always did.

Worst of all? She could still feel how badly she’d wanted him.

“You need to give them a chance,” Ronnie insisted, distracting Paige from her gloomy thoughts. “Talk to them at least. Like that cute guy who kept sending drinks your way even though you kept turning them down.”

A frat boy interested in taking a stroll on the kinky side. No, thank you. Either they ended up disappointed or she freaked out. Both options were unacceptable, really. And unpleasant. Not to mention totally unsexy.

“You need more than drinks to impress a bartender,” Paige answered with a wink.

“So that’s me,” Ronnie said as they turned onto her street, and she pointed at a building. “Thanks for getting me home.”

“No problem. It was on my way.”

Paige would have gone straight home because she was dead on her feet, but she was about to have three days off in a row. She needed to make sure all was in order at Rosita’s, especially as she had been the one closing and at the moment couldn’t recall if she’d verified the lock. Besides, Paige’s colorful roommate was having her boyfriend over. The only thing they did more than fuck was fight, so she was not in too much of a hurry to get into that mess.

She parked in front of the restaurant. Time to make her OCD proud.

The lock on the roller shutter was closed. She opened and closed it again, fixing the moment in her mind, and pulled at it three times to ensure she wouldn’t forget.

Then from the corner of her eye, she detected movement in a nearby parked car, the door ajar.

There was a man inside, hunched over, one leg out.

Probably one of those inebriated morons who thought they drove better intoxicated. She’d met her fair share of those. He didn’t make a sound. No drunken babble or dribble, but it was cold outside. Maybe he was freezing. Or choking on his own vomit.

Paige approached. “Yo, buddy, you okay?”

No answer. The guy wasn’t moving, his head still flung forward. She couldn’t see properly through the window, so she opened the door a bit more, and the huddled figure tipped sideways until his face was half-buried in her stomach. Not cool. At all. She took a step backward and noticed a fresh splotch on her dress. Oh, God. That was blood. Real blood. Thick. Sticky. Dripping from the side of his abdomen too.

She reached for him, and the second she touched him, a strong hand clamped on her forearm.

The man lifted his bloody face to her, his expression a snarl, his deep-blue eyes cold and murderous. Suddenly, he shoved a gun against Paige’s neck.

Oh, shit. She knew that man. “Nick?”

NICO HAD TROUBLE focusing. Everything was blurry. Distorted. He narrowed his eyes, his trigger finger twitching. The image in front of him sharpened little by little: a bride covered in blood. Looked like the Grim Reaper had gotten a makeover just for him. What an honor. Or maybe he was hallucinating. It wouldn’t be the first time tonight.

“It’s me. Paige,” the bride blurted.

Who? He couldn’t recognize the face, but her eyes were strangely familiar. Not sensing any immediate danger, he lowered his gun. It must have been the right call because the bride didn’t grab his weapon and shoot him with it.

He let her go and put pressure on the wound beneath his ribs, his hand sinking into warm blood. How he had any left, he didn’t know.

“You’re bleeding,” he heard her say. “Have you been shot?”

And drugged. Or poisoned. Hell, both probably. He wasn’t sure he could articulate so many words, so he just nodded.

“You need a doctor. A hospital,” she continued.

“No hospital,” he choked out. A hospital meant police. Too many questions. If by any miracle he managed to survive, he didn’t want to wake up in a government black site. Or in a hole in the jungle, compliments of the cartel.

The bride hesitated for a second. “Okay. No hospital. But you can’t stay here.”

That was true. Remaining in the open was a sure death sentence.

Without waiting for his response, she sprinted around the car. Then he heard the door of the passenger side open and felt her beside him.

“Lift your ass when I tell you to,” she ordered, grabbing him by his armpits and taking a deep breath. “Now.”

With the last of his strength, Nico obeyed, gritting his teeth, almost blacking out from the agonizing pain in his side. She was small, but damn if she didn’t manage to drag him over the console onto the passenger seat.

“Sorry,” she whispered, flinching as she helped him bend his knees over the gear shift. Then she ran to the driver’s side, jumped in, and revved the engine.

Nico struggled to keep conscious, but his vision became fuzzy again. Fuck, not now. He had to get to a safe location before he passed out completely. “Where are we going?” Hopefully she was not turning him in, because he was too weak to mount any substantial resistance.

She didn’t answer, just continued driving, throwing furtive glances his way.

He tried to fight the blackness, but he couldn’t. He was drifting away. Resignation blanketed him, dulling his senses as his body started shutting down. He looked at his driver. Vintage wedding dress, covered in blood. Military boots. Spiked choke collar. Crazy hair. Black lips. Weirdly pretty raccoon eyes. He’d always thought the last thing he would see in this world was the snarl of the guy sending him to hell.

If a beautiful Goth bride was the last image he witnessed before biting the big one, he was happy. Considering the life he’d led, it was more than he deserved.

 

 

Header Hard Limits

Hard Limits is the perfect proof of why I’m so damn addicted to Elle’s stories, and this HOT Bowen universe! One of my fav reads this year and one I truly recommend to everyone out there! Better to start with the beginning of the series, though, and you’ll see what all the buzz is about! These Bowen are a guaranteed satisfaction, in every possible way *wink, wink*!!!

We first got a glimpse into these characters, Nico and Paige in Jacked Up, and immediately I was drawn to them.

Nico, the deep uncover agent slash newly positioned drug lord, and Paige, the mysterious Goth waitress of Rosita’s (Bowen family associated restaurant), seems like an apparently odd pairing, right? Well, one thing is certain, they sure left an impression on one another. That and some undeniable attraction, from their very first encounter.

“You wanted me the first time we met, but you didn’t go for it. What changed?” “I changed. I go for what I want.”

But we soon find out how truly deceiving appearances can really be, when fate decides to reunite them in the strangest and life threatening of situations. They end up giving in to their insane attraction, thinking it will be a fast burn case, but evidently thing because much more complicated. Nothing is simple about them as individuals, much less as them as a couple!

“You have no fucking clue what it’s like to wake up in a panic, terrified I said your name in my sleep and someone heard me. I dream about you every night and wake up hard and afraid. Hoping against hope no one will notice the change in me. That’s why I didn’t want you here. Because you are unraveling me piece by piece, and I fucking hate it.”
“If you hate it so much, why are you here?” she asked, standing her ground.
“Because I can’t stay away. Because I can’t fucking breathe without you. Because nothing’s worth a damn if I don’t have you. Because I’ve fucking lost my mind. Enough reasons?”

I don’t want to give too much away because as all of Elle Aycart’s books, reading it needs to be an experienced, so that you can go through all the feelings – and boy, she sure does make us feel, every-freaking-thing – and I can never get enough! From the well constructed and deep characters, enrapturing plot and vulcanic chemistry and sex scenes, Hard Limits was catapulted directly to my all time favorite list. Elle Aycart gave us in Hard Limits a passionate and enthralling novella that will surely get you just as hooked on her books as I am. Nico and Paige were absolutely perfect – in their own and particular away, of course! And HOT, did I say HOT already?! LOL

This book was such an amazing surprise (since I was expecting Morgana’s book to be next), but the best kind of surprise. It tidied up my Bowen craving and gave me the delicious Nico and the captivating Paige, but like the true greedy b!tch that I am, now I want Morgana!!! Counting down the days here!!! Pretty please… <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 

“For years there was nothing in my life but darkness and thirst for revenge, whatever the personal cost. Nothing else mattered. Then you came waltzing into my bleak existence, with your quirks and your crazy hair and your lovely smiles, and you fucking blinded me. I should have let you go, but I couldn’t. I just fucking couldn’t, and now you are my priority. I will do whatever it takes to keep you safe. Because I love you.”

After a colorful array of jobs all over Europe ranging from translator to chocolatier to travel agent to sushi chef to flight dispatcher, Elle Aycart is certain of one thing and one thing only: aside from writing romances, she has abso-frigging-lutely no clue what she wants to do when she grows up. Not that it stops her from trying all sorts of crazy stuff. While she is probably now thinking of a new profession, her head never stops churning new plots for her romances. She lives currently in Barcelona, Spain, with her husband and two daughters, although who knows, in no time she could be living at the Arctic Circle in Finland, breeding reindeer.

Synopsis

The Boudreaux Series. Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.

Family. Responsibility. Stability.  

As the co-CEO of Bayou Enterprises, and the eldest of the Boudreaux clan, Beau is the epitome of these. Now that his baby sister Gabby is happily settled down, Beau has moved into the company loft in the heart of the French Quarter to be closer to his office while his own home is built. He doesn’t have time for anything but the family he adores and the company that drives him.

If only the bewitching owner of the herb shop downstairs from Beau’s loft wasn’t so damn tempting. 

Mallory Adams is living the life. The good life. The best life for her. After years of hiding who she is, and the gifts she’s been cursed with, Mallory opened her little shop in the French Quarter, offering herbs and lotions for anything from soothing a sunburn to chasing those pesky ghosts New Orleans is known for out of a client’s home. Some call her eccentric, and some say she’s simply odd, and that’s okay with her. She is a bit odd, but in her experience, all of the best people are. 

When an old pipe bursts in the loft above her store, flooding her storeroom, Mallory comes face to face with Beau Boudreaux, and she doesn’t need the clairvoyant abilities that have been passed down through generations to know that she’ll never be the same. Beau is her exact opposite; serious, straitlaced. He wears suits for Pete’s sake and probably wouldn’t know the difference between arnica and flaxseed if his life depended on it. But when he touches her, the electricity is through the roof and she’s smart enough to know that a chemistry like theirs doesn’t happen every day.

Can two people so very different possibly find their way to happily ever after?

Excerpt

“I’ve always had a knack for knowing what people need,” she says softly, as if she’s choosing her words very carefully. I don’t know why that bothers me. I want her to speak her mind, to not have to censor what she says.

But this is a good start.

“In what way?”

“Maybe someone has headaches, or their feet hurt. I have essential oils and herbs that can help with those things.”

I nod.

“My grandmother taught me all about alternative medicine from the time I was a child. She wasn’t crazy with it,” she says quickly, “she still believed in western medicine as well, but why take a pain reliever full of chemicals if you can just put a drop of oil on the back of your neck to get the same result?”

She shrugs and reaches for the dessert, smiles when she opens the box, and digs in with enthusiasm.

“I thought it would be fun to open a store full of those things,” she continues. “I wanted the bottles to be pretty, and everything to be tied with a bow. I wanted a place where people enjoyed coming in, even if only to browse. It smells good, the energy is calming.”

And I realize that that’s exactly how I feel whenever I’ve been in her store.

“I’d say you’ve accomplished those things.”

“Thank you.” Her smile is huge and genuine. “That’s really the best compliment I could ever get.”

“Really?” I cock a brow and watch her lashes flutter. “I’d also say you’re stunning. I want to bury my fingers in that amazing curly hair of yours.”

There must be something in the food that’s making me speak so freely. But Mallory seems to bring out my flirty side.

I’d forgotten that I had a flirty side.

Her smile slips just a bit, and her cheeks flush, and I know she’d look just like that when I’m buried balls deep inside her.

“That’s very nice of you.”

“But not what you want to hear.”

“Well, don’t get me wrong, every woman wants to be told she’s pretty.”

“I didn’t say pretty,” I reply and lean in, resting my elbows on her desk. “’Pretty’ is too dull of a word to describe you.”

“You’re an interesting man,” she says, tilting her head to the side and studying my face with narrowed violet eyes. “You just say whatever you’re feeling.”

“Not always,” I reach out to tuck her hair behind her ear and she stiffens. I pause, keeping my eyes pinned to hers before I slowly brush just the pads of my fingertips over the outline of her ear, tucking that soft curly hair, then lowering my hand back to the desk. “But I see no reason to not be honest with you.”

“I opened this shop because I love it,” she says, her voice still soft but firm. She’s not weak in any way, and that pulls at me like a siren’s song. “I want to help people if I can, even if it’s just to moisturize their hands. And I like this building.”

“There are other streets with more foot traffic.”

“And I like where I am,” she says again. “I do well here.”

“I’m glad you do.” I nod and without giving it much thought, reach out to pull my fingertips over her hand. My eyes are watching hers as I do, and I can see the hesitation just before I touch her, and then the relief when my skin rests on hers.

She doesn’t like to be touched.

“Tell me more,” I say softly.

“That’s all there is about the store.”

“Tell me about you.”

She pulls her hand out from under mine and sits back in her chair. “I think you’d better go, before I tell you more than I want to.”

I cock a brow. “I’m a fan of honesty.”

“Good.” She nods once and begins loading the empty boxes in the trash. “I’m in favor of being honest, and in that same spirit, I’m exhausted, Beau.”

“I know. I am, too.”

But I’m not ready to say goodbye to her yet. I’m afraid that we’ll go our separate ways, and I won’t see her again.

“What are you thinking?” she asks.

“That I want to see you again.”

“You live upstairs from my shop,” she reminds me. “I don’t see how we could avoid it.”

“We avoided it for a damn long time,” I say and stand, shoving my hands in my pockets. “But I won’t make that mistake again.”

Header Easy Magic

Finally Beau and Mallory are here!!! Can’t believe Easy Magic, one of my most anticipated release this year – actually, since the very first book in the series – is  live!

Easy Magic was just that, pure romantic and passionate MAGIC from the very first  word to the last. Kristen Proby gave me everything I had been hoping and dreaming for these two and a hell of a lot more! It was perfect in every delicious Cajun way!

We know Beau from the very first book of this series, as the oldest of the Boudreaux siblings, and for that very position, the stern, ‘uptight’ and most workaholic and protective of them all! Yes, he still is every bit of that, but when Mallory comes to the scene, lets just say we get to see a whole new and even hotter side of him…

Jesus, she’s the sexiest little thing I’ve seen in, well… maybe ever. She intrigues me, and she turns me on with just a look. Since when is lip biting my thing? Apparently, since now that I know Mallory.

Mallory has been distant from almost every single people surrounding her for years (in reality, almost all her life), because of the consequences and discrimination of her gift. Her emphatic and psychic nature are a part of her she tries to keep hidden, but when she’s brought into the Boudreaux fold, it didn’t stand a chance to remain a secret for long. They are too amazing to let her keep her distance!

I don’t want to know the future. That’s one thing I can’t read, and I don’t want to. I’m happy to live in the present, and let life happen.

And that’s just talking about the rest of the family, because has soon as Beau got close to her, she didn’t stand a chance – not that she fought much, lol – against his charm and his sweet and gentle nature towards her. A nature he has until then reserved just for his family. She shifts his world from its axis, as much as he give her the much need calm and peace she long for all her life.

Being touched by Beau is like being touched for the first time in my life, and I never want him to stop.

Not that they are just love and softness, given the amount of sexual chemistry always charging the environment surrounding them. The surprises happens also in the bedroom, because Beau’s alpha dominance, and their dirty talking took the things between the sheets, from hot to, in their own words, a ‘f@cking inferno’! These two were indeed the perfect balance of sweet and scorchingly hot!

“You’re moving awfully slowly,” she grumbles.
“I’m savoring this,” I whisper and kiss her collarbone. “I’ll only ever get to see you naked for the first time once. I don’t want to rush it.”

“That’s lovely,” she says. I move my hips slowly, pulling out and then pushing back inside, and she sighs.
 “Is this lovely?”
 “No, it’s fucking amazing,” she says. “It’s like you were made just for me.”
 “Because I was, sugar.” 

Awww… Beau really was a swoon worthy hero, and Mal was just as amazing. Couple that with the fantastic secondary character, which is always a pleasure to revisit, and a well thought and realistically – even with all the paranormal events and nature – developed plot, of course Kristen Proby gave Easy Magic the recipe for success! This was my favorite of the Boudreaux series, and with all the glimpses we got thought it and this book, I can’t wait for Van and Ben’s story! Biting my nails in anticipation here!

“I don’t love you despite your gifts, Mallory. I love you, period. In the end, isn’t that what we all want? Someone to choose us, to love us, no matter the circumstances?”

Lifelong best friends and Rosewood’s legendary assistant football coaches, Macon Ray and Rhett Hunt have shared everything their entire lives–even their women. But their days of manwhoring and sleeping around have come to an end. Ready to settle down, they set their sights on the only girl who they want to complete their trio. Caroline Taylor, the head coach’s daughter. Now that she’s finally turned 18, they can no longer resist their mutual desire for the beautiful, petite blonde in pigtails.

She’s young.
She’s innocent.
And she’s completely theirs.
She just doesn’t know it yet.

Excerpt

“You…” she swallowed hard, her widened blue eyes darting back and forth between Macon and me. As she drew her lower lip in between her teeth, my dick trembled, twitched, and grew nearly twice its size. God, she affected me so easily. So incredibly. I was about to pounce when she finally found her voice. “Do you do this a lot?”

The words came out in a rush, and this time when she bit her lip, I nearly groaned. My eyes flicked to Macon, and we exchanged a knowing look–both aware of how fragile this situation was. How innocent and vulnerable our sweet Caroline was. I knew we had to tread carefully, but even still, we knew we had to be completely honest. If this was going to go anywhere, honesty was essential. But fuck me, I didn’t know how patient I could be.

The first time I saw Caroline I was nearly knocked on my feet. Macon and I’d just gotten back to town, and we were on the field checking out the turf.

We hadn’t even noticed a girl was running the stairs until she nearly collided with us.

I’d wrapped my arms around her waist to keep her from falling. When her widened blue eyes had blinked up at me, my heart nearly stopped beating. My dick had instantly hardened. It was as if my heart and body knew she was meant to be mine.

I’d nearly growled when she stepped back from me and out of my arms.

Mine.

The ferocity of my need to claim her immediately caught me off guard. I’d never felt that way for another woman. Daddy had always told me I’d know the one when I met her. I just hadn’t known it would hit me that hard. That quick. That intense.

Macon had to have noticed. I felt his elbow before hearing his word. “Settle.”

Header Two Point Conversion

4.5 ‘Perfect Smutty Debut’/’Perfectly Sandwiched’ Stars

I was completely blown away with Two Point Conversion! What a perfect and Scorchingly HOT debut! These ladies sure put themselves on the erotic/smut literary world, and I am giddy with excitement to see what they bring us next!

Macon and Rhett, closer then siblings, really are what Romantic heroes should be made of, because the way they were lost to sweet Caroline, with just one look at her as young woman, and fully acknowledged  and embrace it was PERFECT!

Something we’d gotten used to since moving here and falling for her innocence the very first time we saw her. We’d been sharing women for as long as I could remember, but once we met Caroline, no other woman would do.

All it took was one look in her eyes to know she was the one.

I couldn’t have asked for more – ok, I could, in the tiny bit of personal preference that their sexual past was not so referenced, even though it was with the purpose to enhance their treatment and care with Caroline, like the precious thing she was to them, but like I said, just a tiny detail – because otherwise it gave me everything I wished for and more! In a seriously sizzling hot menage, to boot! One of the best, and more believable menages I’ve had the pleasure of reading, because beyond the sexual attraction/scenes, we really could feel their deep seated love and devotion.

It was the best sandwich a girl could ever ask for.

I looked up to see them both watching me intently. It was intimidating, being under such scrutiny, but at the same time, I’d never felt more desired. It was incredible to be watched with such desire from one man. But from two? What more could a girl want?

Caroline really was one lucky lady! How many women can say they have the unconditional love and devotion of one man, let alone TWO?! And have I mentioned, über sexy alphas with filthy mouths to sweeten the deal even more, and makes us melt on the spot! Talk about panty-melters!!! 

Dyin’ to fill you up, flood your womb with my seed and create a baby in this sweet pussy.”

I was so full. So claimed. So ultimately theirs and I knew I’d never want to be anything else again.

Like I’ve said, Liane Moore is the author (authors) to watch, and after seeing their instant projection to best seller immediately upon release – more than deserved, I have to say! – I couldn’t be more excited for them, and us as readers – specially me, and a sure fan-girl – because promising is sure the perfect adjective for them. I’ll be counting down the days until the next release, since they went directly to my auto-read-author short list! Bring on even more heat to our lives, ladies!!! I’ll have the cold shower prepared, lol! 😉  <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

They loved me enough to share me, and it thrilled me to know I was loved more deeply, more wholly, more beautifully than any other woman in the world. They trusted each other, they trusted me, and just as much, I trusted them. With all my heart, all my soul, and all my life.
