How do you protect your heart?
Build a wall.
Lock it away.
Let no one in.
Everyone should have a childhood worth remembering. Only I
remember mine for all the wrong reasons. Starting over in a new town is hard
enough. When you are running from your past, it doesn’t get any easier.
I was ready to say goodbye to the burdens I have carried. The
pain I’ve experienced is more than anyone should have to face.
Then I met him…
He takes my breath away. I can’t ignore the way he makes me
feel. I know he has the power to destroy me.
And that’s what scares me the most.

It’s a few minutes after three o’clock when I hear his pick-up
truck pull into my driveway.  After doing a quick check in the mirror, I
open the door to greet Callum.  
Once again, there are no words to explain how handsome he looks
dressed casually in a black t-shirt, jeans, and his Chucks.  Taking a
minute, I let my eyes wander over his body.  Admiring the way his hair is
pulled back beneath his backward baseball cap, how the cotton showcases his
incredible chest, and his muscular arms fill out the sleeves as my eyes roam
back up to meet his stare.  
His eyes are bright with amusement, appreciating how I just
blatantly checked him out.  He doesn’t even try to hide his smile.
“You ready, sweetheart, or do you need a minute for a second
look?” He chuckles.
Smart ass.  
“I mean, you won’t see me objecting,” I retort, raising my eyebrow
as I flash him a smirk of my own.  I can tell by the smile on his face he
is enjoying our banter just as much as I am.
“As much as I’d love to see that delectable look of desire on your
face again, baby, I have plans for you.  C’mon!” he says, holding his hand
out, ushering me onto the porch as he takes the keys from my hand.  
After he safely locks up the house, he takes my hand again and
leads me out to his truck.  Helping me into the passenger seat, he leans
over and secures the seat belt.  
After double checking that I’m safely buckled in, he leans back to
meet my eyes again.   Searching my face, I wait for him to say whatever
he so clearly wants to say.  My eyes trace along his sharp jaw down to his
lips as I peer back up to him, hoping he feels this pull between us and will
finally put me out of my misery.
“There will be plenty of that later.  Just you fucking wait,”
he says as if reading my mind, grunting as he steps back down to the ground and
slams the passenger door shut.  Letting out a heavy sigh, I follow him as
he walks around to the driver’s side and quickly climbs into his seat.  
Leaning over, he turns on the radio as he backs out of the
driveway.  It doesn’t take me long to realize we’re heading out of town.
The excitement sets in, wondering where he could be taking me.  
“You going to tell me where we’re going or what our plans are when
we get there?” I ask, looking over at him.  
For a minute, I think he is ignoring me until he looks over at me.
He smiles smugly, and I know without a doubt it’s his way of telling me,
“not a chance.”
The song changes to a tune that I know so I turn it up and settle
back into the seat with a huff, hearing him chuckle to himself.  The
lyrics of the song are about a girl teasing a man by making him want her and it
spurs something inside me.
Turning my head to Callum, I let my eyes roam over the side of his
face, down his chest to the slight bulge in his pants.  Seeing how his
body reacts to me has me fighting my own arousal.  Making the path back up
to his face, I can see his jaw clench, resisting the urge to look at me, his
eyes focusing hard on the road.
The tension in the cab of the truck has quickly changed.  The
air charged with the connection between us strong, it’s pulling us together.
Resting my elbow on the center console, I lean in closer so we are
touching, causing Callum’s arm to tense as I use my index finger of my right
hand to trace along the inside of his forearm.  
That sexy fucking arm.
Leaning in closely, I release a slow breath along his jaw until my
mouth is just next to his ear.
“You look so sexy driving this truck, Callum,” I whisper softly as
I run my tongue along the shell of his ear, nipping softly on his ear lobe.
It’s an action so very unlike me, but I can’t hide the way he makes me
feel.
Slowly blinking his eyes, I watch for a second as he closes them
just before he forces them open as if forgetting where he was.  Smothering
a smile, I remove my arm from around his, leaning back against my seat.
Grunting
to himself, he quickly moves his right hand down to his lap, working to conceal
his reaction to me, grumbling, “Just you wait, sweetheart, I’ll get you back
for that.  Just wait!”

story.” – Aurora, Whoo Gives A Hoot Book Blog.

Release Blitz – Beauty Of A Monster by Katie Fox & Eleanor Lloyd-Jones



Title: Beauty of A Monster: Seduction (Beauty of A Monster Duet, #1)
Authors: Eleanor Lloyd-Jones & Katie Fox
Release Date: May 2nd 2017




A house filled with well-kept secrets.

A delicate balance of order and control.

A story of a life ripped apart by grief and blame…

… and the whirlwind of color and optimism who turns his existence upside
down…

… with the strength of her love.










Beauty of A Monster: Seduction (Beauty of A Monster Duet, #1)
Text Copyright © 2017 Eleanor Llyod-Jones & Katie Fox
All Rights Reserved
Will’s words flew
through the air as fast as the snowball had soared, and the second Joey
recognized the serious tone that accompanied them, she froze, panic in her eyes
as she realized Will was between her and the safety of the house. Her only
other option was to run off into the darkness of the grounds, and there was no
chance of that happening. A split second decision had her hauling arse towards
the corner of the building, hoping to God she could get past him fast enough.

The moment she set off
running, Will stepped to the side and reached out his arm in an attempt to grab
her, but she was too fast. Her nimble frame dodged and twisted to the side
leaving his fingers grasping at nothing but thin air. Annoyance had him turning
around, his arms lifting into the air and his hands clasping on top of his
head, his eyes closing.

Only a moment slipped
by, though, before his stubbornness took a hold of him and he in turn set off
running, watching as her tiny body disappeared around the corner, an extreme
feeling of Deja vu filling his mind.

Why was he always
chasing her?

A strange rush of
adrenaline surged through him as his wide strides found him at the door only a
second or two behind her, and the jingle of female laughter, laced with playful
fear, wafted through the gap and into the winter air sending a tingle of
undefined lust down his spine.

Goddamn her.


Eleanor
Lloyd-Jones 
Raised in a little village in North Wales, a fierce love of
books and reading was instilled in me by my parents from a very early age, and
I have vivid memories of reading secretly under the blankets with a torch for
hours after lights out, often getting caught! I was blown away by The Borribles
Trilogy – Michael De Larrabeiti at nine years old, and it was then that I fell
head over heels with the idea of imaginary worlds. 






A persistent and professional daydreamer, something I still pride myself on
being, I spent most of my early childhood inside my own head making up stories
or scenarios, climbing trees, building dens or doing anything ‘arts and
crafts’.






​Music also played a huge part of my young life. Growing up on The Beatles, U2
and Status Quo, my obsession with Top of the Pops and vinyl twelve inches grew
into a love affair with music that has only expanded over time: there is rarely
a moment where music is not playing in my life, and in turn, rarely a time when
I am not singing, even if it is only in my head! 






I had always thought I would write a book someday—it has been an ambition for
as long as I can remember—and I have always been told that I ‘have a way with
words’. Over the years, I’ve dabbled in the odd piece of prose, helped friends
to write letters and résumés and I pride myself on her hilarious lyrical genius
when composing poems for friends’ birthdays! 😉 





Life, however, got in the way and my dream was stored on the back burner as I
put myself through university and started a family. It was only when
I was nearing the ‘forty’ milestone that I decided it was time I got some of
the ramblings and chatterings in my head down on paper. 


A creative mum of one boisterous boy, I class myself as a Yorkshire gal now
after moving to Leeds when I was eleven. I work full time as a teacher, but I
grab every spare minute I can to write, be it on the train to work or by
foregoing sleep for an extra hour or two in the evenings.

My hope for the future is for people to fall in love with my characters as much
as I do. Not a big ask really!



Katie Fox

Katie Fox was born in Florida and raised in Pennsylvania,
where she still resides with her gamer husband and four-year-old son. An avid
reader and hopeless romantic, she is a sucker for a good love story. When not
found with her nose buried in a book, she’s usually spending time with her
family or in her writing cave, giving life to the voices in her head. 
Since a very young age, writing has been her
passion.

Release Blitz – The Gravity of Us by Brittainy C. Cherry

The Gravity of Us, an all-new gripping and emotional standalone from Brittainy C. Cherry is LIVE!

gravity-ebook

The Gravity of Us by Brittainy C. Cherry

Release Date: April 13th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Graham Russell and I weren’t made for one another.

I was driven by emotion; he was apathetic. I dreamed while he lived in nightmares. I cried when he had no tears to shed.

Despite his frozen heart and my readiness to run, we sometimes shared seconds. Seconds when our eyes locked and we saw each other’s secrets. Seconds when his lips tasted my fears, and I breathed in his pains. Seconds when we both imagined what it would be like to love one another.

Those seconds left us floating, but when reality knocked us sideways, gravity forced us to descend.

Graham Russell wasn’t a man who knew how to love, and I wasn’t a woman who knew how to either. Yet if I had the chance to fall again, I’d fall with him forever.

Even if we were destined to crash against solid ground.

SYNOPSIS

It all started with a wish…

Evangeline Grant, or Evan as you’d know her (if you liked living), grew up
surrounded by love. And because of all that love, she had one wish in life.
It was loaded, but it was simple.

A wish that left her heartbroken and hopeless…

Unfortunately, years down the road, that wish was obliterated. A secret she
kept hidden away, suffering alone with only her parents to comfort her in
her dark times. But she wasn’t the only one keeping a secret.

Until he gave her hope…

Then Mr. Tall, Dark, and F***ing Godly himself had to show up and flip the
script. For the first time in years, Evan found herself with hope; all
thanks to Emmanuel Silva. As they each face their demons, a decision has to
be made. A decision that will change the course of not only their lives but
a precious little girl’s as well.

And helped her wish of happily ever after come true…
*This book contains adult content (lots and lots of swearing, inappropriate
comments, drinking, and definite sexy times) and is intended for readers 18
and older*

**This is book two in a series, but each book will be a STANDALONE with a
new couple. NO cliffhanger**

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kelsey is a romance hoarder, a Bob Seger groupie, and a die-hard fan of all
things leather, fringe, silver, classy, and full of sparkles.

She was never a writer in the normal sense, but she was always a creator of
stories. From Barbie’s to The Sims, Kelsey made sure they lived…interesting
lives. Summer of ’15, Marcus Mumford’s voice crooning in her ear, a
character started to speak to Kelsey and refused to let go. This character
put her on a path of following a dream she never even knew she’d had until
it came true.

When she’s not lost in the world of Willowbrook and all its inhabitants,
exploring a new planet, or finding new places to lose herself in
characters, she can be found deep in the world of other authors, trying out
her baking skills on her family and friends, learning–then tweaking–new
recipes from the Food Network, immersing herself in good music, enjoying
the California sunshine with her two fur babies, relaxing and cackling like
a loon with the people close to her, or disappearing as she binge-watches
seasons in a day on Netflix.

Addiction ~ NOUN

The fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance or activity.

 

I’m a strong woman.

Or at least, I think I am. I used to be so sure about that.

I trained everyday, making sure I could take down anyone that I needed to. Mixed martial arts, kickboxing, self-defense, karate. You name it, I’ve done it.

I prided myself on being not only physically strong but mentally too. I knew mind games, I knew how to put on a front.

I may be small in size but I like to think of myself as a pocket rocket.

Quick thinking, fast reflexes.

When I was younger, I was known as the delicate little flower, the person people needed to protect, to not let get hurt.

I hated it.

I didn’t want someone who was paid to protect me, I wanted to be able to do that shit myself and that started with leaving home at eighteen with only a couple of hundred bucks and a bag full of clothes on my back to get away from my father.

But I never expected to meet him along the way.

The person whose eyes were full of sadness and heartbreak. The person who turned my world upside down and my heart inside out.

The problem? He only wanted someone to warm his bed at night, and that was okay for a while. Until I wanted more.

Competing with someone who didn’t exist anymore was impossible, and that’s exactly what I was doing when it came to him.

There was a time when I thought I could pull him out of the darkness but now I know that won’t happen, not while I’m slipping into that darkness myself and especially not while I’m in a love affair with those pretty little pills.

They gave me relief, calmed my body and soul, all the while destroying everything that I worked to become and all that I am.

Now? Now it’s just me and them.

Release Blitz – Blacksmith (A Real Man #10) by Jenika Snow

 

 

Steel isn’t the only thing that’s hard.

Maddie

Deacon was older than me, but I wanted him regardless. He had this raw edge to him, this primal aura surrounding him that made me feel wholly feminine. He was the epitome of a man…a real man. Even his profession was masculine: a blacksmith. I had no doubt he knew how to work his hands over a woman, how to use them to make her feel the soft and hard sides of him.

What I wanted was for him to be my first…my only.

 

Deacon

She thought I didn’t see her watching me, that I didn’t know she wanted me.

I knew, and I wanted her with a fierceness that rivaled anything else.

What Maddie didn’t know was I’d already claimed her. There was no other woman for me but her. I was a possessive bastard, territorial when it came to her. The time had finally come to make her mine. I’d show her how primal I really was, how rough I liked it, how much I wanted to make her scream my name. I’d show her how a man took care of his woman in all the ways that counted.

She’d be mine. Only mine.



Warning: You like your heroes with a touch of caveman? Look no further because Deacon has it going on. He’s all man, and then some. Hold on tight because this story packs a punch, being unbelievable in the best of ways and having instal-everything.

 

Maddie

I had a death grip on my bag, my palms hurting from how strongly I was holding on to the damn strap. But God, I didn’t care. The sight before me had everything else dimming in comparison.

Deacon McKnight.

The only reason I knew his name was because I was nosy as hell, asking about him, my fascination like an obsession. We’d never spoken, and to my knowledge he’d never even noticed me.

But I sure as hell have noticed him.

If ever there was a person who could be the poster boy for what a real man looked like, Deacon would be front and center.

The bay doors to his shop were open, and although it wasn’t hot out, I could see sweat covering his hard, muscular form. I swallowed. If anyone were to see me gawking at Deacon, they’d think I had some issues. I didn’t give one shit. Walking by his shop every day on my way to the community college I attended was the highlight of my damn day. The only downside was when I finally pulled myself away from the perfect male specimen that he was, I was breathless, wet, needy, and wishing I had someone to relieve the pent-up arousal that burned in me.

 

I want Deacon to be that someone. I want him to show me with those big, strong hands, the ones stained from his work, exactly how he likes it.

And I bet he liked it rough, bet he could really dominate and control a situation, have a woman begging for more.

I might be a virgin, might not be experienced in anything more than a hand job and some oral, but God, I wanted to learn a hell of a lot from Deacon. I wanted him to show me how a real man handled a woman.

And no doubt he could.

Release Blitz – Royally Matched by Emma Chase

RM-FB-on-sale-4

Royally-Matched-3D-bookSome men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world’s most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

EXCERPT

Sarah stands up and presses her lips against mine. And it’s so unexpected, so surprising—I freeze up. But only for a moment. As her mouth gently moves over mine, I begin to thaw. She’s so fucking soft, her taste so very sweet. The kiss is almost chaste—at least it’s the most chaste I’ve ever had. Unpracticed.

And yet, it still manages to make my heart pound against my ribs like an animal in a cage.

“What are you doing?” I whisper, when she pulls back just a little.

“I’m distracting you.” She looks up at me uncertainly. From behind those ridiculously prim little glasses with those big, dark eyes that could bring me to my knees. “Is it working?”

My tongue traces my lower lip, craving more of her.

“I’m not sure. Keep trying—I’ll let you know.”

She smiles quick and relieved . . . and then she reaches back up, wraps her arms about my neck, and kisses me.

Her two lips envelop my lower one, then the upper, all eager, pleasing sweetness. My hands find Sarah’s lower back and I pull her in close, tight against me. Slowly, I open my mouth and she mirrors my movement, opening for me. And it’s good. So very, very good.

It’s like my blood has turned to gasoline, and the touch of her wet, warm tongue is the spark.

I delve deeper, kiss her harder—more demanding—taking the lead. I cup her head in my hands, holding her still while I plunge and devour. A moan seeps from her lips and I devour that too.

But then, breathing harshly, I tear my mouth away.

“Sarah, maybe we shouldn’t. Maybe we should just—”

“I’m sick of being afraid, Henry. And I’m so tired of being alive . . . but not really living. I’ve wanted this for a long time. I want . . . you.” It’s only then that hesitation dims her eyes. “Do you want me too?”

I grip her arms. “More than I’ve wanted anything or anyone in my entire life.”

She takes my hands in hers, lifts them and presses my palms to her breasts. They’re soft and full and absolutely perfect.

“Show me.”

Beneath her robe, her bedclothes are paper thin. I trace my thumbs across her nipples, feeling them harden and peak. I want to suck on them until she’s mindless. I want to lick every inch of her skin and watch her flush with desire.

I wrap my arms around Sarah and lift her right off her feet. With a groan, my mouth is back to hers. Her small pretty hands cup my jaw as I carry her toward the bed. I stop against a wall on the way, knocking a frame sideways, lifting her leg in one hand and wrapping it around my hip so I can thrust against her.

There’s so much I know—deviant, filthy, lovely moves. And I want to teach her every damn one.

Title: Switch
Series: Landry Family #3
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: February 20, 2017
 Blurb

Mallory Sims is late for her first day of work.

After spilling her tea, she discovers she has no gas in her car. Add that her arm keeps sticking to her dress from syrup left on the console of her car, flustered feels like an understatement.

Then she sees her new boss.

Graham Landry is the epitome of NSFW in his custom-fit suit, black-rimmed glasses, and a look so stern her libido doesn’t stand a chance. Being flustered is just the start of her problems.

Her punctuality is only the start of his. With a pink slip in hand, he’s been waiting on his new secretary to show up only to let her go. Then she rushes in with her doe eyes and rambling excuses, smelling like bacon and lavender. The termination paper falls to the side as she falls in his arms.

This is a disaster in the making. Not because of his pinpoint exactness or her free spirit, but because when they’re together, the sparks that fly threaten to burn the whole place down.

 Excerpt

We both know we aren’t just talking about a moved stapler or a mishmash of files. As that really sets in, the air around us gets heavier. Hotter. Hazardous.“Those things always lead to dangerous situations,” he says, his eyes trained on me.

I shift in my seat, the throb between my legs growing stronger by the second. “People do it every day and survive.”

“They may survive, but don’t things get messy?”

“Only if they do it right.”

His chair flies backwards and he’s to his feet and next to me before I know what’s happening. He doesn’t ask that I stand, but he doesn’t have to. It’s implied and my body reacts accordingly to his silent command.

We stand face-to-face, our breathing ragged. Our chests heave with the anticipation, the possibility, of what might come next.

“You are, quite possibly, the most dangerous of them all,” he says, his voice rough.

“Why is that?” I breathe.

“There’s no plan for you.”

“But you’ve already penciled me in, haven’t you, Graham?” I ask, finding the courage to play this little game with him. Being strictly professional is incredibly hard, and this is way too easy.

I can flirt with the best of them in a bar or on a college campus. But here, with him, it’s a game all its own. A level I had no idea I’d ever be a contender in. Maybe I’m not, but I’m going to play the hell out of it while I’m here … even though if I keep it up, I might not be here for long.

“What do you want, Mallory?”

“I want to do all the things you ask of me and do them better than you ever expected they could be done.”

A rumble emits from his throat as his eyes darken. My knees go weak and I grab the table with my left hand to ensure I don’t fall.

He licks his lips and flips his gaze to my mouth. I think I whimper as I lift my chin, waiting to see what he does next. My entire body is on fire for this man, my heart thumping so hard I’m sure he can hear it.

He moves so my back is pressed against the table, our food long forgotten. His hands are on either side of me, caging me in. Our eyes locked together, he leans in, a slow smirk spreading across his gorgeous face.

“Excuse me, Mr. Landry. Ford is here to see you,” Raza chirps through the line.

We exhale simultaneously, a giggle escaping with mine. There’s nothing funny about this, but the energy has to come out in some way.

“Mr. Landry?” she asks again.

“I’ll be right out. Thank you, Raza.”

“Oh, you’re so welcome, sir.” The line clicks off and Graham marches across the room and punches a button. The light on top indicates he’s not to be disturbed.

I busy myself with cleaning up our lunch, and before he’s at my side again, I have everything bundled up.

“Thanks for lunch,” I say like nothing just happened.

“Mallory …” He runs his hand through his hair, leaving one lock sticking up. Knowing what that will look like if we walk out together, I reach up, hesitating for a split second, before smoothing it out.

His hair is silky against my fingers. He jumps when I touch him at first, but doesn’t back away. “What are you doing?”

“Nothing went on in here. I refuse for it to look like something did. That’s the way rumors get spread, Mr. Landry.”

“Mallory, I …”

I get a final look at his face, reach up and straighten his tie as his eyes go wide, then turn towards the door. “I’ll send Ford in.”

“Mallory!”

“Yeah?” I turn to see him over my shoulder. He’s standing by the table, his hands in his pockets looking frazzled. When he doesn’t respond, I place my hand on the knob. “I’ll have that file back to you before I leave today. Thanks again for lunch.”

I walk out before I can change my mind.

Review
Rating: 4.5 Readaholic Stars!
Reviewer: Brooke O’Brien

HOLY SHIT! I don’t know how Adriana Locke does this time after time with the Landry brothers.  I remember reading that grape scene with Barrett, thinking damn she got me good.

Then, again with Linc.  All I gotta say is ICE CUBES!

She has outdone herself again with Graham.  Please don’t tell Crew or the rest of the Landry brothers, but I think I have another Locke love!

Let me tell you about Switch – and, of course, I’m going to start with our man G!  Graham is the Landry brother who is always looking after all the brothers on the business end.  He’s their go-to; simply put he’s dependable and he knows his shit.  He’s a sexy, dirty talkin’ CEO! The best part about him, he’s a family man.

Now enter Mallory, she is the perfect person to balance out Graham.  She’s beautiful and hardworking, with a good head on her shoulders.  Graham hires her after losing his assistant, in need of someone to help him keep things organized as he takes on a new business venture.  She’s the messy and chaotic to his neat and orderly.  Don’t let that fool you though, she’s good at her job.

I fell in love with them more and more just watching their store unfold.  Switch is a great addition to the Landry Family series.  Adriana Locke has an amazing talent for creating characters that draw you in making you fall in love with their story from the very beginning and this one didn’t disappoint at all.

It seems like this series just keeps getting better and better.  I can’t wait until we get more of our man Ford in Swear. ❤
