Blurb
After the first sighting, he’s fascinated.

After the first smile, he’s infatuated.

By the first kiss, he’s obsessed.

Nolan sees Chloe through a window of a bakery in downtown Manhattan. At first sight, something about her calls to a piece of him he thought was lost. Without thinking, he begins watching her, and when the moment presents itself, he strikes, claiming Chloe for himself.

Excerpt #1

“You look stunning.” I step towards her, running my index finger down her bare side. “I don’t know how I’m going to make it through the evening without killing every man who looks at you.” That’s not a lie, I think, tracing the edge of her breast.
“You didn’t pick this, did you?” she asks.
 I lift my eyes to meet hers and shake my head.
“I can change.”

“No. You look...” I shake my head, trying to think of a way to describe her. “You look absolutely beautiful.”


Excerpt #2
“GET UP,” I tell Chloe as I walk into the bedroom.
“For what?” she asks, looking at me from over the top of her
Kindle, not moving.
“You’re not going to lie around and pout all day. Now, get
up.”
“I’m not pouting.” She frowns.
I shake my head, walk over to her, rip the Kindle out of her
hand, and toss it onto a chair across the room.
“Hey! I was reading that,” she complains, crossing her arms
over her chest and glaring at me.
“I don’t know what happened to my submissive little Angel,
but I’m telling you now—what you’re going to be doing is getting undressed, getting on your knees, opening that pretty mouth of yours, and sucking my cock until I tell you to stop. Then, if you’re good, I will eat your little pussy until you come,” I growl, pulling her out of bed. “When I’ve had my fill of your taste, you’re going to climb up on my cock and ride me until we both come.”

SHELLY'S 4 STAR REVIEW:

Ronnie is returning from a cruise with her friends and boyfriend when she arrested and accused of drug smuggling.  Her family does everything they can to hire a good attorney and post bail.  Ronnie know that if she is going to be proven innocent she needs to find out the truth.  Nikko Marino is a sexy, devastatingly charming bounty hunter. His job, as told to him by his older brothers, is to keep an eye on Ronnie so she does not run.  Nikko and Ronnie have a past and they are having a hard time putting their feelings for each other aside.

The characters in this story are well developed and likable.  You will be laughing at some of the antics that Ronnie pulls and shaking you head at others.  Nikko, and all of his brothers are hot alpha males.  The secondary characters also play a big part in this story. Ronnie's ex boyfriend is the character that you will hate. 

The book has some hot steamy moments between Ronnie and Nikko, but this story is not all romance.  Ronnie decides the only way she will be proven innocent is to get the real drug smuggler to confess.  She runs back to Maine and sets out to accomplish this.  Along the way she gets herself and Nikko into danger.  The storyline will keep you reading just to see if she can prove her innocence. 

I can't wait to see what the other books in this series bring.  I hope we get to know more of the Marino Brothers because the best quote came from the oldest brother. "If she's got to stick her tongue down his throat, if she's got to grab his c*ck, and moan to get this sh*t done today, she's doing it."  Made me laugh. 


Excerpt #1 

“Seriously Nikko.” She rolled her eyes at him, just shook her head, and began to fiddle with the wrapping on her straw.  She popped it into the top of the Styrofoam container, and then took a sip of her strawberry milkshake, a long one.
He watched her curiously.  He knew he had been flirting, but only to make her jealous, and realize what she missed out on last summer by running from him.  He began to peel the paper off of his own straw when she finally came up for air. He wished those lips were sucking something else.  His cock was enjoying the thought immensely.  He was grateful the table was hiding his powerful erection.
As Ronnie took another pull on the straw she saw Nikko squirm on the seat uncomfortably as he tried to get his straw unwrapped.  “Oh yes!” she whispered huskily and licked her lips.  She put the straw back in her mouth to suck a little more of the frothy, creamy concoction into her mouth. Two, could play his game, she thought, as his jaw hit the dirt.  She could make more out of her enjoyment of the milkshake than she really felt and give him a little dose of his own medicine.  She released the straw and then darted out her tongue to lick the tiny bubble of ice cream that appeared on top. Nikko jammed his straw into his own mouth and looked at her fiercely.  Smiling and then ignoring him, she popped the straw back into her mouth sucking greedily.
Nikko’s mouth dropped at the sight of Ronne’s lips on the straw, sucking.  And her words practically had him shoot a load like he was a teenaged boy again.  His blood was pumping in his veins. The wrong veins, or maybe the right ones. He felt his cock in his pants stir against the constraints.  The second, no maybe third time that day, she’d made him harder than the Rock of Gibraltar.  He shifted on the wooden seat uncomfortably. His balls would be blue in no time if she continued her little sensuous torment much longer.  He knew what she was doing, but that didn’t, couldn’t stop his reaction to it.
He finally took another sip of his own drink needing the coolness of it to tame the flames she was fanning.  It was good.  “Oh yes,” he teased her back saying it breathily.  “So good!” he purred and went in for another sip.
They exchanged glances over their straws and then both of them couldn’t help themselves, they burst out laughing simultaneously.
They laughed, and for Ronnie it felt good.  It was the first time she had laughed in days, and had not thought about all the things she had to face.  For Nikko, it was startling.  He realized he loved her laugh, and would like to hear her do that more often.  Like last summer, he realized there was something about this girl who made him want more than just a roll in the hay.  But, he couldn’t think of that now.

Meet the Marino Brothers


Excerpt #2

Ronnie knew she was drunk because this was just feeling so good. She needed to stop him. But somehow she couldn’t. He smelled so damn good. The cologne, the sea breeze, the wind, and his tongue trailing down her neck had her senses spiraling. That and the three glasses of champagne she had consumed. His lips and teeth nuzzled her neck, little nips that felt like tiny explosions.  His hand slid up her rib cage. She felt the timeless exploration under her breast as he tested its weight. He gently squeezed, and then flicked her nipple beneath the thin material of the bridesmaid gown she wore. He pulled the cup down and a cool blast of night air hit her before his mouth descended on the tiny bud. His mouth was hot. Oh yes! His tongue divine as it titillated her even further. She was the opposite of senseless. She was on fire.
Nikko couldn’t believe his luck. The blond beauty had given him the cold shoulder whenever their paths crossed. But, the little ice princess had warmed up to him. All it had taken was a few drinks, a few dances, and a few suggestions whispered in her ear. He murmured his appreciation around the mouthful of the most amazing breasts he had ever seen in his twenty six years. This little spitfire with the snapping brown eyes had continued to ignore him throughout the ceremony. But at the reception, she loosened up.  Let her hair down so to speak. Once he got her on the dance floor, and showed her a few moves, she came undone and began to relax.  He liked her like this. Very much.
“Oh God!” she whimpered as he circled her nipple with his tongue and then gently pulled on it with his teeth. She was tugging on his dark hair, pulling him closer, showing him her true nature. She wanted this, and he was more than happy to comply.
They met two weeks ago at the rehearsal dinner for his cousin’s wedding. From that moment, he knew he wanted her, underneath him, on top, he didn’t care. She was every man’s wet dream even though it seemed like she didn’t know it.  And right now, she was making one of his fantasies come true, up against a palm tree on the beach in a relatively secluded alcove.  She was pushing against him, craving the contact.  There was no denying he relished it.  And he thanked his lucky stars, because he wanted her, badly. His cock had been at attention all through their dances. Now, it was straining against his black dress pants needing its own gratification.
But, he meant to please her first. She was leaning against the coarse bark of a skinny palm, on the beach where hours earlier his cousin, Victor, wed his lovely bride, Monica. His free hand snaked up her thigh. It was shapely. The girl’s legs were defined, hard under the smooth surface. He could feel her muscles tremble under her silky skin as he slid his hand up the inside of her leg. He cupped her, and again she pushed into his touch. Not one to deny anyone their pleasure, least of all himself, he felt Ronnie part her legs and slid a finger inside. She was already aroused, and wet. He began to flick her clit as she squirmed in time to his ministrations.
“Oh God, Nikko . . .,” she murmured, “that feels so . . .”

BLOG TOUR AND REVIEW: COUNTING COWBOYS BY LACEY WOLFE

Counting Cowboys
by
Lacey Wolfe


counting cowboys

Can a hot cowboy convince Lauren to stay in Texas and take another chance on love?

Tucker Carver likes to have fun and has no intention of settling down anytime soon. He handles the business side of Carver Ranch for his family, and on the day he's scheduled to meet with their accountant, he instead meets a beautiful woman who changes everything.

Lauren Ford packed up and moved to Texas to start over after her fiancé had an affair with her best friend. Her father's retiring and has offered to let her take over his accounting firm. When she meets Tucker she's immediately taken with him, despite his reputation as a ladies' man. Knowing she isn't looking for love, or even if she wants to stay in Texas, she decides to have fun with Tucker and keep her feelings at bay.

After one taste of Lauren, Tucker has other plans. Lauren is the woman he wants, but for some reason she's resisting. And it doesn't help when her ex-fiancé shows up in town wanting her to go back to Georgia with him. Can Tucker convince her that his feelings are true, or will he lose her forever?

SARAH'S REVIEW:
Counting Cowboys is the first book I have ever read by Lacey Wolfe. It was a very sweet but quick read. This is the first book in the series and I definitely recommend it to those who like quick reads.

Tucker and his brothers run Carver Ranch and let me tell you they are some sexy cowboys. He also helps manage the financial side of the Ranch business and when the new accountant walks in to meet with him he definitely gets more than he bargained for. Lauren is the daughter of their current accountant and she is a beautiful lady. Tucker works hard and plays harder and has no intentions of settling down any time soon. Will Lauren be the one to change his mind about settling down or will he continue with his playboy ways?

Lauren has moved to Texas to help her dad and to get away from her ex fiancé who cheated on her with he so called best friend. She is immediately attracted to Tucker but isn't interested in a relationship right now. Tucker invites her to the local tavern and she agrees to meet him there. There are sparks flying between them but what happens when Lauren's ex comes waltzing back into town? Will she forgive her ex and move back with him or has Tucker gotten under her skin enough that she will stay with him?

I enjoyed the connection between Lauren and Tucker. I felt that the story lacked depth. Everything moved so quickly and I would have like to see more relationship development.  The story ends very quickly and I would have liked to read more into their story. I can only hope that we will see more of these two in future books.
Counting Cowboys Teaser

EXCERPT

Lauren stared at the papers in front of her, but none of it registered. All she could focus on was the half naked man. The hot, sweaty, tanned man who was now naked in his shower only feet away from her.
She shook her head and rubbed her thighs. Enough. It wasn't like Tucker was the first sexy man she'd seen. She wasn't blind or innocent, but something about him got her panties moist quick. Hopefully, she could make it through this accounting meeting without ripping her own clothes off and offering herself up to him. She had no doubt he would be an awesome lover. The man worked with his hands all day; surely he knew a thing or two that could please her.
Seriously, enough.
Lauren straightened her back and stared at the stack of papers he'd given her. There were receipts, printouts, and such. Tucker seemed to keep good records, so that would make things easier. She removed her computer from her bag and turned it on. After she pulled up the file for Carver Ranch, she studied it once more to familiarize herself with it.
This was a profitable ranch. Last year had been one of their roughest years, but so far, this year was already better. She was sure once she started to fill in the stuff he'd supplied her with, she'd see they'd come back strong from the previous year.
"Everything there?"
Lauren jumped in her seat.
"Sorry, didn't mean to scare you."
Tucker, now dressed, came over and sat next to her. Whatever soap he'd used attacked her senses in a good way. How did someone get out of the shower, yet still smell like fresh cut pines?
She shouldn't do it, but she did anyway. She let her gaze wander over his body. The black t-shirt he wore hugged his wide chest, letting her get the full view of his muscles.
Lauren looked away quickly. "Yeah, I think this is it." She flipped through the stack. "You're free to do whatever while I do this. I know you've got a lot to do."
"Can I get you something to drink?" He stood, and her focus went straight to his crotch.
Oh God. She glanced up quick to see him smirking. The man knew he was sex on a stick with his sandy blond hair and blue eyes. "Do you have some tea?"
"Sweet?"
"Uh, yeah."
He winked. "I'll be back."
"Take your time." The farther away he was, the more she could concentrate on her work. She wasn't sure what had come over her, but the sooner she got done with this job, the better. Then she wouldn't have to see him again until next quarter.

BLOG TOUR AND REVIEW: BREAKING BENNETT BY ANNE JOLIN




BREAKING BENNETT 

Author: Anne Jolin 

Genre: Romance/Erotica

Series: Rock Falls Series, Book 3 

~ SYNOPSIS ~

Beth Rhodes has always had a game plan. Go to college. Get the perfect job. Get the perfect guy. Get the happily ever after she's always wanted. It is just her luck that everything falls into its precise place in her life. At least it seems that way until her blueprints go up in smoke. She loses the job she loves and her price charming is turning out to be the villain of her fairytale instead. With failures and mistakes piling up on her doorstep, she knows something has to give—or she could very well end up paying for those mistakes with her life.

Braxton Bennett is lethal, both in the courtroom and in the ring. Two sides of him constantly wage war against one another, and to keep the internal bloodshed at bay, he allows himself to indulge in his violent vice. Suit by day and brawler by night aren’t easy dual lives to manage for a man of his status. The only way to do so is by following a strict set of rules—rules he won’t break for anyone. But what if he already has?

On a summer night in the depths of the city, a chance encounter will turn both of their perfectly constructed worlds upside down.

Will they battle together against all odds to break Bennett’s rules? Or will Rhodes tap out to save herself before the fight is over?

REVIEW:

Wow! Just when I thought it couldn't get better, it did! By leaps and bounds because Breaking Bennett was right up my alley!! Ms. Jolin's storytelling is fast paced, captivating and gripping from the Prologue all the way through. I thought Jami would be hard to beat as my Rock Falls guy but Brax has taken his place and then some. I read this entire book in one sitting. Anne switched up her writing style some in this one. There's less sex but in the sex-less gap there is much more intrigue, suspense and drama.. a bit darker I would say. AND I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!! Don't worry the sex scenes between Brax and Beth are still melt your panties hot. 

Braxton Bennett is a walking contradiction who CONTROLS everything in his life down to what I feel is the smallest details. Brax fights his demons in two totally different ways. During the day he slays his demons in the courtroom. At night he beats them to death in the cage. He is such a sexy complexity!! Oh and did I mention tattooed and hot as sin!? Now back to why he insists upon control.. His two worlds MUST NEVER collide.. BUT they do and they do in a big way..

Beth is sitting on top of the world, walking on sunshine, living in the clouds... Well, you get it! She's Damn HAPPY. Her life is as perfect as it can be.. Perfect friends, perfect family, perfect job and of course the perfect boyfriend. In one day all her Sunshine and Happiness fades to black. One night she is in a near death situation and is saved by a dark night. This meeting sets off a domino effect neither of them see coming especially when she meets the dark night in the light of day and realizes Mr. Tall, Dark and Dangerous is a lawyer too. 

I love Beth's character. She doesn't submit to his control easily,  shes snarky, sarcastic,  and fights him at every turn. Shes his perfect compliment and I love her in every way. She knows when to say when though and that's why they work so well together!

Watching the story unfold, literally feeling the suspense, and connecting to the characters are exactly why I give Breaking Bennett 5 HUGE stars!!!

~ ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~

Anne Jolin

I’m twenty four years old. I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside of Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns and riding in trucks. I’ve been married to my handsome redneck husband for a year and we are parents to our chocolate fur baby, Bear. No kiddo’s yet! I am completely and utterly obsessed with country music, you will constantly find me stalking iTunes. If you don’t find me on iTunes, you’ll find me on Netflix because I am a self proclaimed movie junkie. Yes, that means that I quote them constantly in daily conversation and my characters do too! You couldn’t keep me away from a good action movie if you tried. I’m also a planning nut. I love to plan parties, events, trips – you name it! I don’t know if that’s considered a real hobby, but it is for me. 

We were fortunate enough to travel a lot as a family growing up, and I think that helped spark my love of reading. I’m half Viking, my mom is Danish, and her entire side of the family still lives in Denmark. We’d visit them almost once a year, every year and it’s a nine hour flight. That’s a lot of uninterrupted time to read (or in my parent’s case, entertain four children – Yikes!). Somewhere along the way my love of reading, became a love of writing. I wrote short stories when I was younger, and although I majored in Business Management at college, I took as many English electives I could get my hands on. 

During the day I work at my family construction company wearing a variety of different hats and at night, I write! I had never thought about writing books before, but after a few suggestions that I should try, I decided to give it a go. I loved it instantly! Having always been a creative person, it felt amazing to harness all that energy and use it to tell a story. Now, quite frankly it’s all I can think about, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m grateful to have developed my love of reading into a passion for writing. You’ll be seeing many more books from me in the future!

Displaying Broken Promises Final Front Cover.jpg



Synopsis:
Pain.
Hurt.
Regret.

All of these are a result from broken promises.

Love.
Joy.
Happiness.

All of these are a result from finding someone’s way.

Love has two paths, happiness and heartbreak. Sometimes those paths intertwine. Sometimes we choose the wrong path. And sometimes we’re given the second chance to pick the right path.  

Which path will Walker and Taylor go down? Only time will tell…






SARAH'S 5 STAR REVIEW:

Broken Promises is the third book in Kelly Elliott's Broken series. This book focuses on Liza and Walker who are the children of the main characters of the first two books. This book can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading the other two books first.

Liza and Walker have grown up together their entire lives. They have always had intense chemistry between them but have never moved forward with their feelings. As they both prepare to leave for college they make a promise that they will wait for each other so they can have a future together.

"Promise me Something...Wait for me, Liza."
"I promise, Walker, I'll wait for you."

As they spend more time apart they both decide to move on with their lives and start relationships with new people. They both pretend to be happy in their new relationships but deep down they both are miserable. A summer spent back at the family ranch brings their feelings for one another back to the surface and they both struggle with those feelings. They have both made promises to other people which holds them back from getting close to each other. The more time they spend together they realize that they are destined to be together. What happens when their current loves come back into the picture at the end of the summer? Will Walker and Liza decide to stay in their current relationships or will they realize they are meant to be together?

"Everything happens for a reason, son. Every road you travel down is because of a decision you made. Some decisions are good, some are bad. Learn from each one. But don't look back in regret. Always look forward in anticipation of what could still be." (Layton)

I loved the deep connection between Walker and Liza. This book took me on quite an emotional rollercoaster and I loved every minute of it. It was nice to be able to catch up with Layton and Whitley and Reed and Courtney. Walker's sister Ava and Liza's brother Jase added lots of depth to the story and I hope to read about them in a future book.

EXCERPT:

I leaned my face in closer to Liza and took in a deep breath. She smelled like heaven. As we danced neither of us spoke a word. The song ended and Liza pulled slightly back. She looked into my eyes and I wasn’t sure what to do next. My heart was telling me to do one thing, but my head was telling me to walk away. Liza’s eyes moved to my lips before she quickly looked back into my eyes. I slowly began to lean over. As I got closer Liza licked her lips in anticipation of our kiss.

“Walker,” she whispered.
