EXCERPT


I cradled my drink as Cam sauntered back to the pool tables. My mind wasn’t made up on the whole visiting them thing yet. Maybe I would. Maybe I wouldn’t.

            “Want another rum and coke?”

            My lips curled up at the sound of Nick’s rich, deep voice. We’d been chatting on and off since I plopped my butt down on the stool, and he had seemed happy that I was there.
            Total bonus points lottery with this guy.

“I’m good, but thanks.” The last thing I wanted to be was drunk. I smiled at him, pleased when his heavily hooded gaze dipped again. “Are you guys usually this busy on the weekend?”

            I could see that small talk was something Nick excelled at, which made sense, considering his occupation. He was an equal opportunity charmer. Women flocked to him at the bar. The other bartender, the girl with the pink glasses, seemed to take it all in stride.

“Not sure if you really call this busy, but Saturdays usually bring a larger crowd.” He glanced down the bar before continuing. “So you went to school with them?” he asked, jerking his chin in the direction Cam had roamed off to.

“Yeah.” Leaning forward, I placed my elbows on the bar. “I had no idea they had connections here. Total surprise.”

“Small world,” he said, echoing my earlier thought. “But you’re not very close with them.”

It was a statement, not a question. “What makes you think that?”

“Well, if you were, I guess you’d be over there with them. Or …”

Nick was observant. “Or what?”

            One side of his lips curled up as he folded his arms across his chest. The movement drew my attention. I was such a visual creature. Not that anyone would blame me right now. The black shirt he wore stretched around well-defined biceps. “Or you’d rather spend the time with me.”

            The twisty motion in my belly cranked up a notch. “Am I that transparent?”

            “In the best possible way.” He picked up a bottle. “I’m glad you did stop by. Every time the door opened last night, I looked up and hoped it was you.”

            “Is that so?”

            “I speak the truth.” His smile was lazy. “Did you finish unpacking?”

            “Yep.”

            “Were there any more rat bastard combinations?”

            I laughed. “There were a few more.”

            “Kind of mad I missed out on them.”

            “There’s always later.” I toyed with my glass as I met and held his stare. “So, Nick, do you have a last name?”

            “Blanco,” he replied after a brief hesitation. “Do you?”

            “Keith.” I grinned as he unfolded those arms. “I have another question for you.”

            Moving in, he placed his hands on the bar. “Ask away.”

            “Do you have a girlfriend?” My breath caught a little when he leaned in suddenly. Our mouths 
were close enough that we were breathing the same tiny patch of oxygen. “Or a boyfriend?”

            Nick didn’t bat an eyelash. “Nope to both. How about you?”

            Bonus points explosion!

            “None,” I said, welcoming the tingle that swirled down my spine as his breath warmed my lips.

            He tilted his head to the side, lining up his mouth with mine with just a fraction of an inch between us. I started to feel a little flushed. “You have plans tonight, Stephanie Keith?” he asked, voice deeper and rougher.

            I shook my head as my pulse tripped all over itself in a happy little dance.

            Nick’s grin spread into the kind of smile I knew left a trail of women in its wake. “You do now.”

The Allure of Dean Harper by R.S. Grey | RELEASE BLITZ



Title: The Allure of Dean Harper (Allure #2)

Release Date: Sept 28, 2015

From: LilyNBlack@Gmail.com

Subject: You’re a flippin’ idiot


Good morning my dear, naive friend,

I hope you’re enjoying a breakfast of regret and sorrow.

Why?

Because you sent me to work for Dean Harper, aka a control freak in a tailor-made suit. Sure he owns the trendiest restaurants in NYC, but c'mon Jo, his ego makes Kanye West look like the Dalai Lama.

He's the type of guy that only hears the word “no” when it's followed by “don’t stop.”

Working for Dean Harper would be like selling my soul to the devil…and before you say anything, I don’t care if the devil has punch-you-in-the-gut brown eyes and an ass to match. My soul isn’t for sale.

Regretfully yours,
Lily


The Allure of Dean Harper is a full-length standalone romance with overlapping characters from The Allure of Julian Lefray. Both books can be read separately. Chronologically, The Allure of Julian Lefray happens first. 
I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things...everyday.

I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors are Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm a comedy geek and love all things funny. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.

The Affiliate by K.A. Linde | BOOK REVIEW

The Affiliate (Ascension, #1)The Affiliate by K.A. Linde
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Affiliate (Kindle) 
The Affiliate (Paperback)

On the day of her Presenting, in front of the entire Byern Court, seventeen-year-old Cyrene Strohm's lifelong plans come to fruition when she's chosen for one of the most prestigious positions in her homeland—an Affiliate to the Queen.

Or so she thinks.

When Cyrene receives a mysterious letter and an unreadable book, she finds nothing is as it seems. Thrust into a world of dangerous political intrigue and deadly magic, Cyrene's position only grows more treacherous when she finds herself drawn to the one man she can never have...

King Edric himself.

Cyrene must decide if love is truly worth the price of freedom.




My Thoughts


"She has this pull. When I'm with her, the throne slips away and I'm just a man with a beautiful woman."


From the moment I started this book, I was drawn to it. The Affiliate is a book which has multiple layers that need to peeled very carefully. The book has a very interesting storyline, unlike any I've read.

K.A. Linde doesn't just delivers a romance story in a fantastical world. Nope. What she presents is so much more than I had anticipated. It is a story that keeps you on your toes with all the mysteries, twists and suspense.

The book starts with a flashback to when the King was dying and leaving an age old story that was believed to be just that. A bedtime story. Fast forward to the present day, it starts with Cyrene getting ready for her Presenting, where the King would assign her a duty as a First, Second or Third Class citizen in the Kingdom.

Before the ceremony every person standing for the Presenting day receives a letter. When Cyrene reads her letter, it sparks a want within her to decipher what it means. What she doesn't realize is that the letter holds the key to her real identity.

Cyrene for her Presenting comes dressed in a bold red gown which leaves the King stunned as red- a bold daring color- is not what one wears in the Kingdom. Moving further, Cyrene has been bestowed with the greatest honor -the Queen's Affiliate.

And what's our heroine if she doesn't have the two most handsome men in the room vying for her attention?
Why of course! King Edric and Prince Kael!
And when Cyrene has the King attracted to her, the Queen is bound to make her life difficult.

From the moment she has become an Affiliate, everything that she knew was completely changing, as simple as the mundane things. Cyrene had to face multiple hurdles and none of them easy. It left her questioning her life. Her future. Herself. Everything.

The characters, the magic, the known, the unknown, the threats and darkness that just looms around the whole plot! I couldn't help but fall in love with all the aspects of the book! All of these had me flipping the pages like mad, wanting to find out what happened next.

What I absolutely loved about the book is the vivid images that conjured in my head while trying to imagine what the author was trying to portray. From the character's attire to the locations and setting and the time period left me in awe.

Another thing that caught my eye was the character's name. They are so unique and very very deceiving.
What I gathered and what my personal observation, and I could be very wrong, is that every character and their attribute is very deceiving. You cannot take anything at face value and like mentioned before, there are so many layers to this novel that needs to be peeled very carefully to get to the heart of it.

What's important to keep in mind is that this is the first book in the series and it lays a foundation for the rest to come, so it will take a little time to catch up to everything, including the pronunciation of the of the names.

The story that Ms. Linde delivered and the way she ended has me wanting the second book. This book was a really great start to what could turn out to be one of the most amazing YA Fantasy I've come across.






                                                         






Screwed by Kendall Ryan | RELEASE BLITZ





I have one rule: Don’t shit where you eat.

Several of the women in the condo complex I own would love some one-on-one playtime, and why wouldn’t they? I’m young, fit, attractive, and loaded. Not to mention I’m packing a sizable bulge below the belt. It’s a combination that drops panties on a regular basis. 

Yay, me, right?

But my cock, troublemaker that he is, has been confined to my trousers by my business partner. A concession I agreed to, and one that’s never been hard to enforce until Emery moves in across the hall. She’s smart, young, determined, and sexy as hell. I want a taste. I won’t stop until I’m buried deep inside the succulent new-in-town brunette.

After being warned about my past, she does her best to steer clear, but I’m about to show her that underneath it all, I’m a guy with a heart of gold and a cock of steel.

My name is Hayden Oliver, and this is my story.

Drowning to Breathe
A Bleeding Stars Novel, Book 2










EXCERPT

My brow pinched, because this fucking hurt. Hurt that Shea had been resisting confiding in me because of who I was. A fucking loose cannon. Someone prone to violence. And there it was, right beneath the surface, fire flaming and licking and begging for release.

My voice was tight. “Made you a promise I’d protect you, Shea. Live for you. And that’s exactly what I’m gonna do. You and Kallie? You’re my life. My everything. And I will do anything…give up anything…to make sure you two are together. I won’t let him win.”

She brushed the back of her hand over the wetness on her cheeks. “He will do anything to break us apart…to separate us. He knows we’re weaker alone. All his words about taking us down at the same time?”

Her head shook with bitterness and hate, something so foreign on my girl’s face, but I saw it there—the atrocities he’d committed—the things she still kept inside.

The scars she wore on her heart while I wore mine on my skin.

“It’s a tactic. A ploy. He thinks he can fill us with threats. Convince our subconscious into believing together we’re easy targets. But, no.” Her eyes drew together as she refuted the idea, as she spilled her own belief. “He’s a coward. A coward. Someone who allows others to carry out his crimes and then lords it over them as if he is the one exerting control.”

That brave chin quivered. “I gave him my submission for so long, and I refuse to ever be that girl again. I was her, Sebastian. I was weak.”

Strength filled the profession. “But I’m not weak anymore. And I’m even stronger with you by my side.”

Raw.

Bold.

Courageous.

“Promise me you won’t let him provoke you, Sebastian. He knows exactly how to ruin people. He finds their weaknesses. He knows Kallie is mine. And he knows the two of us are yours.”

I swallowed hard. “I promise, baby.”


I promise. 








He wanted nothing at all…

Until he found she had everything to give…

Sunder lead singer and guitarist Sebastian Stone has everything—fans, fame, and fortune. He also has a heart full of bitterness and a reputation for a short-fused temper. But an outward reputation rarely reveals the true man inside. Facing assault charges after trying to protect his younger brother, Sebastian is sent to Savannah, Georgia to lie low until the dust settles in L.A.

Shea Bentley is beautiful, kind, and hiding from the very lifestyle Sebastian has always embraced.

When the mysterious, tattooed stranger begins hanging out at the bar where she works, Shea is quick to recognize he is nothing but trouble, but she's helpless to the way her body lights up every time his intense gray eyes tangle with hers.

They both soon find themselves drowning in a sea of desire and passion that won’t let them up for air.


Sebastian knows firsthand secrets never die, and he’s not the only one who’s hiding them.

Loving someone always comes with a price. But will it be Shea’s past that costs them everything?

Synopsis

**Release Date TBA**

Kadence Kavanagh has spent the last two years trying to rebuild her life. When a job opportunity presents itself, she can’t say no, even if it’s with the man who’s life 
was ruined by her father’s indiscretion. It’s been years since she last saw Caleb Callahan, and she’s not even sure he remembers her, but she’s determined to give herself a clean slate no matter who she has to work for. 

In the unlikeliest of circumstances, Caleb becomes her savior – if somewhat reluctantly - and she discovers that the man she’s read about in the gossip columns is nothing more than a smoke screen. Kadence knows that keeping her distance is for the best, no matter how difficult, but when Caleb proposes the unthinkable, she finds herself caught between what’s real, and what she wishes was real. 

Caleb and Kadence lose themselves in a lie, and when reality comes knocking, they realize that all they were doing was playing pretend…

**Unedited & Subject To Change** 

Chapter One
My car sputtered to a stop as the stoplight turned red. I cranked open my window, my skin already coated with a light sheen of sweat. Manhattan was humid at this time of year, and a sharp contrast to the weather I’d grown accustomed to over the last two years. Admittedly I’d missed this city, with it’s tall, looming skyscrapers, and pedestrian-filled streets. The sweet hum of Monday morning traffic providing a rhythm no song on the radio could match.
The light turned green, and I gripped my steering wheel tighter the closer I got to Park Avenue. I was nervous, but also excited to be back in the place I once called home. The streets, filled with a sea of yellow, felt familiar, but also different. Or maybe it was me who was different.
In fact, I knew I was.
And that thrilled me.
And scared me a little too.
I checked my watch, and sighed in relief when Callahan Industries finally came in to view. It was situated opposite the Waldorf-Astoria, and it’s glass exterior, and clean lines somehow created a disparity between the new world and the old glamor of Manhattan’s longest standing hotel.
After pulling into the underground parking, I checked my make-up, and headed inside, trying to quell the nerves making my blood pump furiously through my veins.
It was my first interview after graduating with a degree in Communications, and out of the two hundred emails and resumes that I’d sent out, Callahan Industries was the only place that had shown an interest in me at all. Rather than be discouraged by that, I decided to make the most of it, and hoped that they liked me as much in person as they had on paper.
People milled around in the spacious lobby, coming and going through the revolving doors, and the sight of all the designer suits gave way to a slight prickle of apprehension. I was underdressed in my thrift store black pencil skirt, and turquoise peasant silk blouse, but did the best I could with what I had and hoped it would be enough.
“Miss Kavanagh?”
I looked up, and found a young Indian woman regarding me with a soft, welcoming smile. Her black hair was tied up into a high bun, and like everyone else around us, she was impeccably dressed in navy wide-leg trousers, and a black silk top with a bow around her neck. I shifted nervously, and rose to my feet.
“That’s me,” I replied.
“I’m Aaliyah. Macy Weatherford sent me, she’s ready for you.”
I followed behind Aaliyah, clutching my purse close to my chest when I stepped into an elevator. A few other men joined us, and then the remaining space was filled with a group of young women. They were laughing, and giggling behind their hands, and from the way they huddled together I’d guessed they were secretaries – the proverbial gossip grapevine within any organization.
“Samantha said he turned her down,” one giggled, brushing her brown hair over her shoulder. “And when she asked him if it was because he’s gay, he just snorted and walked away from her without another word. Poor girl was so humiliated, she cried for days.”
“Of course he turned her down,” another retorted. She rolled her eyes, and made a tsking noise. “It’s Caleb fucking Callahan for God’s sake. He never dates staff…”
I froze at the mention of his name. It might have been years since I’d last heard it being uttered by anyone, but it still made my pulse flutter.
The elevator dinged, preventing me from taking a walk down memory lane, and I watched as the gossiping women got off on the twentieth floor. By the time we reached our destination – the fifty-second floor – Aaliyah and I were alone, and for the first time I second-guessed my decision to apply for a position at Callahan Industries. Granted, I wouldn’t be working directly for Caleb, but I couldn’t help but wonder if he’d remember me.
Because I never forgot him.

Not that any girl would ever forget her first kiss.
