RELEASE DATE: Monday, July 23, 2018

TNT_FullCover

Synopsis:

It was just a typical Monday.

Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client.

After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed.

Or so I thought…

Until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch.

My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance.

And that was the good part of my day.

Because the gorgeous man crouched down and looking at me like he wanted to eat me alive, was none other than my ex, Gray Westbrook.

A man who I’d only just begun to move on from.

A man who my heart despised—yet my body obviously still had other ideas about.

A man who was as charismatic and confident as he was sexy.

Somehow, I managed to make it through my presentation ignoring his intense stare.

Although it was impossible to ignore all the dirty things he whispered into my ear right after I was done.

But there was no way I was giving him another chance, especially now that he was a client…was there?

cover-wrap-380.jpg

Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.

His body is as chiseled as Adonis. His lips are as sculpted as David. And his ego is the size of the Guggenheim.

You know the type—wolfish smile and the gravity of a black hole. The kind of man who sucks all the air from the room the second he enters it. My cocky boss thinks this internship was wasted on me, and he doesn’t hesitate to let me know.

But he’s wrong, and I’m going to prove it to him. If I can stay away from his devil lips, that is. Lips that cut me down and kiss me in the same breath, leaving me certain he’s on a mission to ruin my life.

And maybe my heart.

About the Author

AuthorPics.jpg

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Release Blitz: Bane by LJ Shen

Bane, the highly-anticipated next standalone in the Sinners of Saint Series by L.J. Shen is LIVE

Bane-Cover-Facebook


Bane

Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.

Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.

Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.

Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.

Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

Jesse Carter

Hot as hell, cold as ice.

I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.

She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time.

She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.

More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.

Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.

Blog Tour: Hooked on You by Kate Meader

Hooked on You
by Kate Meader
Chicago Rebels, #4
Publication Date: May 7, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Sports Romance, Standalone

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS:

The steamy Chicago Rebels series returns with this racy and sassy tale of embittered hearts, second chances, and going for the goal—on and off the ice.

Violet Vasquez never met her biological father, so learning he left his beloved hockey franchise—the Chicago Rebels—to her is, well, unexpected. Flat broke and close to homeless, Violet is determined to make the most of this sudden opportunity. Except dear old dad set conditions that require she takes part in actually running the team with the half-sisters she barely knows. Working with these two strangers and overseeing a band of hockey-playing lugs is not on her agenda…until she lays eyes on the Rebels captain and knows she has to have him.

Bren St. James has been labeled a lot of things: the Puck Prince, Lord of the Ice, Hell’s Highlander…but it’s the latest tag that’s making headlines: washed-up alcoholic has-been. This season, getting his life back on track and winning the Cup are his only goals. With no time for relationships—except the fractured ones he needs to rebuild with his beautiful daughters—he’s finding it increasingly hard to ignore sexy, all-up-in-his-beard Violet Vasquez. And when he finds himself in need of a nanny just as the playoffs are starting, he’s faced with a temptation he could so easily get hooked on.

For two lost souls, there’s more on the line than just making the best of a bad situation… there might also be a shot at the biggest prize of all: love.

Hooked on You Teaser 1


percy-klein

Discovering Kate Meader and her amazing series that is the Chicago Rebels was one of the best things to happen to me last year reading-wise. I devoured the first four books, more like two books and two novellas, in this series in about a month. Each book got better and better, but they also gave us a delicious taste at the one couple whose story I could not wait to get my hands on: Violet and Bren. The wait for their book, THIS BOOK, was TORTURE but I was so freaking happy when I was finally able to get my hands on it.

Violet Vasquez and Bren St. James have been tip-toeing around one another ever since Violet found out she inherited one-third of the Chicago Rebels after her biological father, Clifford Chase passed away. The teasing and jabs at one another have been the icing on top of each of the previous books. Especially since with each one of those moments, their sexual tension seems to increase ten-fold to the point that you just want them to tear off each other’s clothes already. With the hardships both Violet and Bren have gone through in the past, I would say that a few sexy times between the sheets with one another is something they absolutely deserve. I mean, between Violet overcoming her battle with breast cancer and Bren’s journey to getting sober and being there for his daughters, I think the universe owes them big time.

I really enjoyed Hooked on You, but I think that because I hyped it up SO MUCH in my head that when I finally read it, the story fell just a little short of my expectations causing me to not love it as much as I thought I would. The main reason for this is that I was expecting there to be more angst and sexual tension between Violet and Bren in the beginning and throughout the book. We definitely got a good amount, but I wanted MORE. After the build-up between these two over the course of this series so far, I was expecting more teasing, more angsty banter, and the sexual tension to reach a point of no return. Maybe I didn’t connect with Violet and Bren as much as I thought I would, maybe I’m just being greedy, all I know is that this aspect of the book was just a tad bit underwhelming.

Everything else about this book, on the other hand, was absolutely adorable. Bren being a single dad on top of being this brooding, ice-hockey-playing Scotsman made his character that much more dreamy. Did I mention I have a thing for Scottish men? His daughters were just the cutest things ever. And then of course, you have Violet who is this bad-ass, opinionated, living-her-life-to-the-fullest heroine that just flipped Bren’s life upside down the minute he met her. Their love story was the best conclusion to this series that I could have asked for because not only did it allows these two lost souls find one another, but it also allowed Violet to realize that her place in the Chase family was always meant to be. It also made me so happy and giddy to see the HEA’s of each of the Chase sisters beyond what happened in each of their books.

If you love sports romances, READ THIS SERIES. That is all I can honestly say. You could start with Hooked on You but you won’t get the full reading experience with this amazing cast of characters unless you start at the very beginning. Trust me you won’t regret it.

4.5 stars

Waiting on Wednesday [11]

I’m FINALLY back with a new Waiting on Wednesday!! 

This is a meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers showcase a book that they are eagerly waiting for!

Mister Tonight
by Kendall Ryan
Publication Date: June 18, 2018

36151788From New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a standalone romance about a swoony single dad and the new neighbor he falls for.

Last night was the most embarrassing night of my life.

I was THAT girl.

You know, the highly intoxicated chick celebrating her thirtieth with her two best friends—the ones who are happily married. And the more I drank, the more I wanted to do something reckless to celebrate.

By reckless, I meant the sexy and alluring man dressed in a business suit standing near the bar. You know his type—tall, dark, and handsome. I was sure he was out of my league, but I’d had just enough alcohol that things like that no longer seemed to matter. I’m not fat, mind you, but you can tell I like French fries, so there’s that.

He took me home and I enjoyed the hottest birthday sex of my life, well until it came to a screeching, and rather unwelcome halt.

There’s nothing quite like being interrupted mid-ride with a little voice asking:

“What are you doing to my daddy?”

Just kill me now…… or so I thought.

Come to find out the man I rode like a bull at the rodeo is my new landlord.


The minute I read the synopsis of this book, I NEEDED it in my hands. Waiting for has been unbelievably hard especially when that cover is HOT. AS. HELL. There is still about a month left until I can read this and all I can say is that I. WANT. IT. NOW.

Teaser: The Wild Heir by Karina Halle

The Wild Heir
Karina Halle
Release Date: May 17th, 2018

39867123At first glance I probably seem like any good-looking guy in their late twenties. I have an obscene amount of confidence, a tattooed body sculpted by the Nordic gods, and I love the ladies as much as they love me.

If I’m not BASE jumping or car racing, I’m chasing other devious thrills with the woman of the week. And that’s fine if you’re the average single guy.
But I’m not the average single guy.

​I’m Crown Prince Magnus of Norway and my latest scandal just landed my entire royal family in hot water.

Now the only way the monarchy can save face is for me to smarten up – publicly. If I don’t, I’ll no longer be heir apparent to the throne. So it’s either I abdicate my future role as King or…
I get married.
To a blue-blooded stranger.

Enter Princess Isabella of the tiny country of Liechtenstein.

Quiet, intelligent, and uniquely beautiful, Ella doesn’t like this arrangement any more than I do and she’s not afraid to show it. She says I’m a womanizer, that I don’t take anything seriously, that my ego should be taken down a few pegs, and I think she aims to make me miserable for the rest of my life.

But even as our arranged marriage becomes a war of wit and words, I’m determined to break through Ella’s prim and proper façade to find the wild​, sexual​ and risk-taking woman underneath. I want to uncover the Queen inside her.

The only question is – will she let me?

**The Wild Heir is a standalone royal romance and a spinoff of The Swedish Prince but it is not necessary to read that book beforehand as The Wild Heir is about different characters**

Top Ten Tuesday [1]: Romance Books with Blue Covers

I am finally doing a Top Ten Tuesday!! I have been wanting to do one FOR SO LONG but between school and work I never had the time to… until now 😁.

ttt-big2

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s topic is: Books With My Favorite Color On the Cover (or In the Title)


So, my favorite color is blue and since I love romance I only thought it would be fitting to do romance books with blue covers. I mean two of my favorite things wrapped up in one package, what could be better than that??

How to Date a Douchebag by Sara Ney
Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas
Addicted by Elle Kennedy
Ball Peen Hammer by Lauren Rowe
Roomies by Christina Lauren
American Queen by Sierra Simone
Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
Dirty Sexy Saint by Carly Phillips
The Deal by Elle Kennedy
Driving Whiskey Wild by Melissa Foster

 

Some of these I have read and LOVED.
Some, I haven’t picked up yet but definitely plan to.
Have you read any of these books?

Also, what color did you choose?
OR
What is your favorite color to see on book covers?
