Synopsis

 

A best friends-to-lovers, stand-alone romance from New York Times Bestselling Author, A.L. Jackson . . .
 
Evan Bryant wasn’t your typical hero.
But he was mine.
Broken by the worlds’ standards, he was still the strongest boy I would ever know.
My best friend. The boy I’d given everything to. My heart, my body, and the promise of forever.
The day I’d needed him most, he walked away.
He left me shattered and questioning the love I’d thought we’d shared.
 
Three years later, I wasn’t prepared for him to return to Gingham Lakes.
It wouldn’t have mattered if he still wasn’t the most beautiful man I’d ever seen.
My fingers still would have ached to caress his skin.
My body still would have begged to get lost in his touch.
And my heart . . . it would have always sung his name.
But time changes things. With it, secrets that could ruin everything.
Can we find a way to love again, or have the fears of our past stolen the hope of our forever…

Hailey makes Hollis uncomfortable in ‘Park Avenue Player’ by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Park Avenue Player

Release date: 9/23/2019

A Contemporary Romance Novel

New York Times Bestselling Authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

EXCERPT REVEAL:

Copyright © 2019

By Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland

“Would you like something to drink, Hollis?”

“No, thank you.”

He looked completely uncomfortable standing in my kitchen, so of course, I needed to make it worse. I tilted my head. “Did you touch any?”

“What?”

“My panties. Did you touch any while you were in the bathroom?”

He tugged at the collar of his polo and looked down the hall. “Where did she go? We need to get back on the road.”

Oh my God!

I’d been kidding around. But…holy shit…he had! I covered my mouth and cracked up. “You did, didn’t you!You perv!”

Hollis walked down the hall. “Hailey…let’s get going.”

I couldn’t get the smile off my face. Something about the thought of Hollis touching my underwear amused the hell out of me. I wished Hailey wasn’t around so I could ask him if he’d smelled them, too. That thought actually made me snort. 

Hollis came back to the kitchen. His face was stern. “We’ll see you on Monday.”

I walked them to the door. Hailey surprised me with a hug. “Your art stuff is awesome.”

“Thank you, sweetheart.”

I grinned at Hollis, who was impatiently holding the door open for his niece. “Your uncle thinks my stuff is awesome, too.”

BLURB

It started out like any normal day.  

Then the fender bender happened.  

The guy I collided with drove an expensive car and was drop-dead gorgeous.  Too bad he was also a total jerk.  We argued over whose fault it was and any other thing that came out of his condescending mouth.

Eventually, the police came and we went our separate ways.  The insurance companies would have to figure things out.  I had a job interview to get to anyway—one I was excited about.  

Though that excitement changed to disappointment the moment the person interviewing me walked in.  The guy from the accident.

Whoops!

Yeah, so I didn’t get the position.

The problem was, I really wanted it. No, I needed it. Anything to get me out of my current career and back into working with kids.

So, even though Hollis LaCroix was as intimidating as he was devastatingly handsome, I went back to see him and begged for a chance. 

To my surprise, he gave me a shot taking care of his troubled niece.

At least my attraction to him wouldn’t be able to go anywhere. I wasn’t about to jeopardize my job or the strong bond Hailey and I formed.  

But resisting the magnetic pull between us wasn’t that simple. (Then there was our little underwear game—don’t ask.)

We continued to flirt without crossing the line—until it finally happened.  

This is the part of the story where we fall in love and live happily ever after, right?

Well, life has a way of throwing some major curveballs.

Ours was one I didn’t see coming.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Laurelin Paige comes a new story in her Found Duet series…

I knew JC was trouble the minute I laid eyes on him.

Breaking every rule in my club. I never forget how he made me feel that night. With all the women in that room, all those bodies on display, but his eyes were only on me.

Of course I married him. Now years have passed. Kids have been born. We’re still in love as always, and the sex is still fantastic…

And yet, it’s also not. Like many who’ve been married for a while, I long for the high intensity of those days of the past.

I’ve heard rumors for years about the Open Door. An ultra-exclusive voyeur’s paradise. A place to participate in—or watch—any kind of display you can imagine.

My husband’s eyes would still be on me. And maybe other eyes too. If that’s what we want.

So when an invitation to come play arrives, how could we turn it down?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Sawyer Bennett’s latest book ‘Sentinel’ is now available

Code Name: Sentinel (Jameson Force Security, Book #2)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: September 10, 2019

Synopsis:
As a former member of the United States Secret Service, I’m no stranger to putting my life on the line in the name of duty. Having left the nation’s capital to re-settle in Pittsburgh, the skills I acquired during my tenure in Washington have made me a valued member of the team at Jameson Force Security. But when the President comes seeking a favor to protect his niece, I find myself on the fast track back to the Oval Office.

Simply put… she’s beyond brilliant. A nationally renowned energy scientist, Barrett Alexander is on the verge of a breakthrough that will change the world. Unfortunately, that has also made her the target of a suspected terrorist cell. And while Barrett doesn’t believe she’s in any real danger, the President isn’t willing to take chances with her life.

As the threats against Barrett become more calculated, I decide taking her on the run is her best chance of survival. Danger, isolation, and attraction ensure we grow closer than I’d ever thought possible. When I realize I want to keep her safe for reasons that have nothing to do with my job and everything to do with the woman I’ve fallen in love with, no one is safe from the hell I’ll rain down on those that threaten her.

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.

Review: ‘Real Sexy’ by Meghan March – Boone and Ripley try to fight for HEA

img_4383

Format: e-book, paperback

Format read: e-book

Series: book 2 of Real Dirty Duet

Rating: Language, sexual content

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/33633947-real-sexy

In the final book of the duet, Boone has got his hands full with the police and Ripley has to decide if she is going to stay for the long haul or let him go?

The first book ended with a bit of a cliffhanger so I was expecting this big opening. There was a little bit of a twist, but it was semi-predictable. Then the rest of the book kind of fared in the same way. Ripley wanting to let Boone go because she thinks that he deserves better and then Boone proving her wrong.

At this point it becomes that classic, well more modernized, love story. Boone becomes that Alpha male that we love to see in romance stories, but he’s an old softy at heart. He’s got that Southern charm that will make you swoon every second that it comes out.

The ending though made up for the rest of the book,. There was a bigger twist in the story that made the difference. I liked how March had us looking one way but then pivoted and had a completely different ending.

Meghan March’s latest book ‘Black Sheep’ is the start of a dark new duet

About Black Sheep:

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a story of untold truths and one man’s redemption in the Dirty Mafia Duet.

Every family has a black sheep.

In the infamous Casso crime family, that black sheep is me—Cannon Freeman.

Except I’m not a free man. I’ve never been free. Not since the day I was born.

I owe my loyalty to my father, Dominic Casso, even if he won’t publicly acknowledge me as his blood.

I’ve never had a reason to go against his wishes…until I met her.

Drew Carson turned my world upside down when she walked into my club looking for a job.

Now, my honor and my life are on the line.

Going against my father’s wishes might buy me a bullet straight from his gun, but black sheep or not, it’s time to make my stand.

She’s worth the fallout.

Review

In the first book in this new duet by Meghan March, we follow Drew as she is trying to find out what happened to her father by working for the mafia. She quickly learns that she may be in over head and have no way of getting out. Cannon is still reeling from losing his best friend and being forced to embrace a life that he doesn’t fully accept. When he meets Drew, she changes everything that he knows and he has to make a decision on whether or not she is worth risking it all?

There is a lot of mystery surrounding this story and March does a very good job at keeping you intrigued without revealing too much. With each chapter we get another layer and each layer makes you want more. There isn’t a crazy a lot of the ‘romance’ scenes in this book and I kind of like it. I like that we get more of the plot because it means that whatever is going to happen in the 2nd book is gonna be CRAZY! 

The pace is a bit over the place and jumpy at times. I wish that there was a bit of a slow down or more fluffy, especially for Drew. There are so many questions and confusion for her story that I hope we get those answers in the next book. 

There is a bit of a cliffhanger at the end, just enough to keep you wanting to read, but not enough to make you angry. But if you are someone that doesn’t like to wait, then you may want to wait until the 2nd book is out before starting this one.
