GOODBYE PARADISE by Sarina Bowen

Release Date: 21st March 2017

Genre: MM Romance

Most people called it a cult. But for twenty years, Josh and Caleb called it home.
In Paradise, there is no television. No fast food. Just long hours of farm work and prayer on a dusty Wyoming ranch, and nights in a crowded bunkhouse. The boys of the Compound are kept far from the sinners’ world.

But Joshua doesn’t need temptation to sin. His whole life, he’s wanted his best friend, Caleb. By day they work side by side. Only when Josh closes his eyes at night can they be together the way he craves.

It can never be. And his survival depends on keeping his terrible desires secret.

Caleb has always protected Josh against the worst of the bullying at the Compound. But he has secrets of his own, and a plan to get away — until it all backfires.

Josh finds himself homeless in a world that doesn’t want him. Can Caleb find him in time? And will they find a place of safety, where he can admit to Josh how he really feels?

Warning: Contains a hot male/male romance, copious instances of taking the Lord’s name in vain, and love against the kitchen counter. This book was previously released under the title: In Front of God & Everyone.


★5 STARS★

Life in Paradise is closer to hell for Joshua. Long gruelling days on the farm and the fear of being cast out are a constant worry that weighs heavily on his mind. He finds what solace he can in the companionship of his best friend, Caleb.

As the grandson to an elder Caleb is afforded more “freedoms” than Joshua; one of them is being able to drive. It’s apparent early on how special Joshua is to him. He too fears that elders will banish Joshua from the compound and takes a risk to prepare for that eventuality.

When the fateful day arrives, what begins is an emotional journey of personal self-discovery and an awakening to a world they know so little about. There is an innocence to this story that I found utterly engaging. In the same breathe the tentativeness of their newfound relationship status was explosive to read.

It truly is a glorious feeling to come away from a novel with a full heart and an abundance of feelings. As a romance reader, Goodbye Paradise is exactly the type of novel I live for. From its opening page to its last, I was immersed in a storyline which captured my attention, and characters that had my love and adoration. I always enjoy a Sarina Bowen novel, but I have to say, I was blown away by this one.

Questions & Answers:

Q. How can readers be sure they didn’t read these books before?

A. The previous edition of Goodbye Paradise was titled In Front of God & Everyone. I had to change the title because the religious overtones of the old title led a few readers to believe that this was a religious book. (Spoiler: it’s not!) To prevent confusion, I’ve made the book’s description almost identical to the old one. The setting is rather unique, and I doubt that many readers will forget they’ve read an LGBTQ romance that begins in a cult…

Q. This plot reminds me of Zach’s upbringing in Keepsake. Did Josh & Caleb leave the same cult as Zach?

A. Yes! Same setting, different characters, different story. Zach didn’t trust that he was lovable. Caleb and Josh, on the other hand, are afraid to admit their love. Same origin, different journeys.

Q. Will these books be up for pre-order?

A. Yes—in early to mid March.

Q. And what about Goodreads?

A. The book will be listed at Goodreads. But it’s entirely possible that the fervent Goodreads librarians will lump the new title in with the old one. Or not? Authors can’t really control much of what happens on that platform. But we shall persevere!

Q. What else is in your pipeline?

A. On May 2, Pipe Dreams (Brooklyn Bruisers #3) will publish! You can always stay up to date with new releases and publicity contacts at http://www.sarinabowen.com//publication-schedule/

Genre: Erotic Suspense/Erotic Romance

EPISODE TWO: As a calculated assassin, Ripley thrives on always being in control. But when the woman he’s sworn to kill makes an offer he can’t refuse, his control is what he risks losing most.

Ripley

They call me RIP.
I’m a killer. A murderer. A psychopath.
In the eyes of the righteous, I’m a monster, born of sin and depravity.
I want to protect her, but I’m not a good man.
I want to love her, but I no longer feel.
She gets under my skin, though, and has awakened something inside of me.
Something I’d kill for.
I’m not her savior—not even close. In fact, I’m worse than the hell she’s already suffered.
I’m her vengeance. Tit for tat, as they say.
And if she’s not careful, I’ll be her ruin.

Dylan

For months, I’ve watched him.
I’ve fantasized him as my savior, my lover. My ticket out of the hell I’ve lived in for the last six years.
I never dreamed he’d be my nightmare.
Had I known what he really is, I’d have never gotten in the car that night, but life is full of cause and effect.
And sometimes the choice on offer isn’t a choice at all.
It’s the result of something already in motion, and we’re merely left to survive the ripple effect.

★BLOG TOUR & REVIEW★ ROYALLY MATCHED BY EMMA CHASE

Genres: Contemporary Romance

RM-FB-on-sale-5

Buy Links: Kindle | Amazon Paperback | iBooks | Nook | B&N Paperback | Kobo | BAM | IndieBound

Title: Royally Matched by Emma Chase

Series: (Royally #2)

Release Date: 21st February 2017

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.

Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook is an incorrigible flirt, and an accomplished ladies’ man.  He also happens to be next in line to the throne and the future King of Wessco. Admittedly the reluctant Royal is having a hard time adjusting to his role and the responsibility placed upon him. Under the watchful eye of his Grandmother, Queen Lenora, Henry must make the transition from Prince to King, and become a man worthy to lead his people.

The Charming Prince he is, Henry persuades the Queen to let him do things his way. Unbeknownst to her, his way includes a film crew, a tawdry reality show and host of society’s most noble woman vying to become his Queen. It isn’t one of Henry’s brightest ideas, but for my own selfish reasons, it happens to be the best.

Enter Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, or rather her sister Penelope. As a condition of her sister Penny being allowed to appear on the show, Sarah must accompany her to ensure she toes the line. There are a great many things Sarah would rather do with her time, but the added incentive of being excused from a daunting work engagement mean she too will be part of the Royally Matched experience, albeit from the side-lines.

Emma’s male POV has always been a delight to read and I’ll never tire of hearing it, on this occasion we also treated to POV of our Heroine, Sarah. I can’t tell you how much I adored Sarah; she’s a darling of a character and a real gem in the crown of this story. She’s shy and introspective, but is also bold and exudes a charm that catches the eye of our Prince.

Henry’s transformation was admirable and a pleasure to witness. Although he has many missteps along the way, he eventually finds his footing and his Queen.

Reading Royally Matched was a like a fairy-tale within a fairy-tale, I always have no end of fun when it comes to an Emma Chase novel. I am without a doubt chomping at the bit for Royally Endowed and see no end to Emma Chases reign as one of my favourite authors.

5 “#IveBeenRipped” stars
Take a deep breath because Keri Lake is about to take you on an exhilarating, adrenaline-filled, action-packed ride.

The underbelly of Chicago houses some of its most shadiest inhabitants. In fact, there is only a scuffed thin line that separates Ripley between anti-hero and depraved. He tortures, he kills, he feels nothing. He’s Keri’s darkest character, and yet I could not get enough of him.

If I thought my adoration for Keri’s writing could not get deeper, here comes Ripple Effect to prove me otherwise. Reading is never a spectator sport where Keri is concerned. Whether it be her characters or storyline, participation is a requisite.

What Other are saying:

“This whole series was laid out beautifully … Keri tells a twisted tale of violence, destruction, deceit that is thrilling, addictive and will leave you beautifully haunted by these characters.” -Read-Love-Blog

“Dark romance lovers UNITE! Keri Lake knocks RIPPLE EFFECT out of the park and into the next ball field. With twisted, heart-pounding, sexy, delicious goodness on every single page, Ripley will own your soul without remorse. Come into the dark, my beautiful butterflies…you’ll want to stay.” -KL Kreig, USA Today Bestselling Author


“The mood is intense. Sinister, brutal and raw and not for the faint of heart, yet in the end you’ll find yourself deeply in love with a brutal killer and the love of his life.” -Vanilla & Spice Books Blog

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.

How To Date A Douchebag: The Failing Hours by Sara Ney
Genre: New Adult, Sports Romance, College Romance
Release Date: 31st January 2017

Zeke Daniels isn’t just a douchebag; he’s an asshole.

A total and complete jerk, Zeke keeps people at a distance. He has no interest in relationships—most assholes don’t.

Dating? Being part of a couple? Nope. Not for him.

He’s never given any thought to what he wants in a girlfriend, because he’s never had any intention of having one.

Shit, he barely has a relationship with his family, and they’re related; his own friends don’t even like him.

So why does he keep thinking about Violet DeLuca?

Sweet, quiet Violet—his opposite in every sense of the word.

The light to his dark, even her damn name sounds like rays of sunshine and happiness and shit.

And that pisses him off, too.

The clock on the wall counts the seconds, steady as the rhythm of my beating heart, which thumps wildly within my chest until the glass door to the library opens, propelled by a gust of wind.

Some new fallen leaves flutter in, the heavy doors slamming from the draft.

Along with them? Zeke Daniels.

He shuffles in, dark gray sweatpants hanging low on his hips, black Iowa Wrestling hoodie pulled up over his head, the university’s bright yellow mascot screen-printed across the chest. Backpack slung over one shoulder, black athletic flip-flops, and a pair of black sunglasses perched on the bridge of his strong nose complete the overall ensemble.

He is utterly…ridiculous.

Unapproachable.

Daunting.

His arrogance knows no bounds; I can see it in his loose gait, the exaggerated swagger, and the too-casual way he’s dragging his flip-flops across the cold, marble tile floor. It’s noisy, irritating, and completely uncalled for.

In the moment, my mind drifts to his personal life, and I theorize that he listens to heavy metal music to sooth his foul temperament, drinks his coffee black—as black as his soul—and his liquor straight up. I imagine once he’s had sex with someone, they’re never invited back. I go one step further and theorize that they’re never invited to spend the night at his place, either.

Zeke Daniels makes his way to a table at the far end of the room, near the periodicals, one out of the way with plenty of privacy.

Sets his bag down in one of the four wooden chairs. Flicks on the small study lamp. Plugs his laptop cord into the base and stands.

Turns.

Our eyes would have met then were it not for those ludicrous sunglasses. I choose the exact moment he lifts his gaze to look down at the ground. Busy myself with shuffling papers on the counter. Count to ten instead of chanting, Please don’t come over, please don’t come over, please don’t come over…

But luck isn’t on my side because he most decidedly does.

Makes his way over like a predator at a pace so deliberate, I’m convinced he’s doing it on purpose. As if he suspects I’m watching from under my long lashes, dreading his imminent arrival.

He basks in my discomfort.

The distance between us closes, his strides purposeful.

Twenty feet.

Fifteen.

Ten.

Eight.

Three.

His large hand reaches up, pushing down the hood of his sweatshirt, his fingertips pinching the earpiece of his sunglasses and pulling them off his face. My eyes follow the movements as he folds them closed, hanging them on the neckline of his hoodie.

His gaze lingers—those clear gray eyes famous around campus—and finds the shiny silver bellhop bell perched on the counter with the sign next to it that reads, Ring for help.

Ding.

The tip of his forefinger presses down on the small bell.

Ding.

He hits it again, despite me standing not three feet in front of him.

What an ass.


 

★ 5 of 5 STARS

My name is Eliza, and I’m hopelessly addicted to douchebaggery. Don’t try to reform me; I’m perfectly happy as I am. With every hit of this series Sara Ney cements herself as my dealer, and I, an addict to her asshole-hero peddling wares.

The Studying Hours was my first read of the year, and if you’ve read it, not so surprising 5 star read of the year also. Of course I could barely contain myself with the unfettered excitement that came with the news of Zeke’s book. In the interest full disclosure, I could not stand him. He seemed to have a chip bigger than his ego on his shoulder, and for the life of me I could not understand how anyone could tolerate him.

However post reading TFH, I won’t hear a word said against him. Yes, he it’s true; he was bigger douchebag than OZ. It’s also true; he said the wrong thing 90% of the time. He was moody and ungrateful and an all-around pain in the behind.

Beneath his douchey exterior is a kind, giving soul so hurt by his past, his default is to lash out. It’s a redemptive story that would not be made possible without our amazing heroine, Violet. She’s a quiet, gentle character whose world is thrown awry by Zeke’s entrance in it. In tutoring Zeke she teaches him more than he bargained for in more ways than one, which he makes clear he does not appreciate.

Although an unassuming character, Vi makes a huge impact on Zeke. She deserves a medal for putting up with him, but don’t be fooled, she puts him through his paces too. It’s a hilarious laugh out loud journey and I honest to god loved every minute of it. The emotional aspect was one that I did not expect, but it brought dimension to the story and further endeared me to both of them.

I’m desperately awaiting my next fix, and can only imagine what Sara Ney has up her sleeve to topple a douchebag like Zeke.

Purveyor of all things witty & romantic, I love: iced latte’s, traveling, and bright, bold colors. On any given day, you can find me in my office, lovingly gazing at my bookshelf or shuffling my Bic felt-tip pen collection. I love hand writing letters, and sarcasm.

Entice Me (Stark Trilogy #3.11) by J. Kenner

Release Date: 17th January 2017

Buy Links: Amazon | iBooks | B&N | Amazon UK | Amazon AU | Kobo UK

julie_enticeme300dpi360x576From New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner comes a sensually seductive novella starring fan favorites Damien Stark and his wife, Nikki Fairchild.

Includes a special preview of Anchor Me, the highly anticipated fourth full-length novel featuring Nikki & Damien as they begin the next chapter in their life together.

I didn’t understand passion until I met Damien, the man who turned my world upside down and swept me off my feet.

And though our life together feels perfect, we can’t escape our secrets–and the danger that continually threatens to surface.

But for one night, I seek a respite. A birthday wish for my husband, my lover, my friend—one absolutely perfect night.

It is my most ardent wish.

And I only hope that it will come true…

By way of storyline, Entice Me is a segue into the next chapter of their lives of Nikki and Damien. Nikki’s career is on an upward trajectory, and bring with it a subtle shift in their dynamic. Even with the unwavering support of her greatest champion, past insecurities that have lain dormant rear their ugly heads.

Damien is the stuff of dreams, and much like Nikki’s Knight, makes it his mission to slay any demons that she may have. It promises to an intriguing and eventful time that lies ahead of them. I feel they shine the most in their darkest times, and it remains to be seen what kind of revelations are brought to light.

Much like Kenner’s writing, the world of Damien and Nikki Stark exudes luxury and decadence. It makes for such wonderful reading to find myself enveloped in a couple whose devotion is not only the foundation of their relationship, but also the driving force behind their unwavering support for one another. It’s this devotion that will forever make me a loyal follower of house Stark.

He bends down so that his lips graze my ear. “Dance for me, baby. Right now.”
”Is that what you want?” I ask. “To watch me dance? Because I have something else in mind.”
His brow rises. “Do you?”
“Mmm,” I say, then start humming as I pull out my phone and find my current favorite song on my workout playlist. A little fast. A little raunchy. A lot fun. I click the button to send it through our sound system, and when the music starts, I press my hand to Damien’s chest and jauntily strut forward, forcing him backward to the padded bench that is intended as a place to sit and wait for the elevator. Right now, I have a different purpose in mind.
“I’ll dance,” I say, doing a shimmy and pulling off my T-shirt in the process. “I’ll even do a stripper dance,” I add. “But I don’t do solo shows. I require full participation.”
“Do you?”
“Absolutely,” I say, turning around so that my back is to him as I shake and shimmy in time with the music and very, very slowly ease my skirt off.
When I turn around, I’m dressed only in my bra and panties, and though I should feel silly, I don’t. Maybe it’s the alcohol. Maybe it’s the lingering high from fucking him in the limo. Maybe it’s the heated way that he’s watching my every move.
Maybe it’s the simple fact that I love my husband.
Whatever the reason, I’m enjoying showing off, turning him on and getting turned on in the process. And as I think that, I slide one hand over my bra and the other down my abdomen to cup myself over my panties.
I have my eyes closed, and the music’s loud, but I still hear Damien’s sharp intake of breath. I figure that’s as good a cue as any, and I open my eyes and strut toward him, then reach out a hand to pull him up.
He complies, amused, and I do my own version of a pole dance, with Damien playing the role of my pole. Up and down, stroking and teasing, shimmying and shaking. It’s a little erotic and a little silly, and by the time I have my bra off and am about to step out of my panties, I’m both desperately wet and giggling furiously.
I bend over to untangle my panties from around my ankle, and when I do, my giggles turn to squeals as Damien scoops me up and tosses me over his shoulder. I pound uselessly on his back, then cry out when he pitches me unceremoniously onto the bed.
“What are you–?”
“Shhh.” He puts his finger over his mouth, then strips off his own clothes. And though he doesn’t add any dance moves, I can’t deny that I enjoy the show.
Slowly, he eases onto the bed and straddles me. “I liked your dance,” he says. “I like even more that you did it because I told you I wanted it.”
“Anything you want,” I whisper, my voice throaty. “You know that.”
“I want you,” he says, then brushes a kiss over my lips. “That’s all I’ve ever

5 of 5 STARS

If you’re already a fan of Chanel Cleeton’s Wild Aces series, then you know Easy needs no introduction. From the moment he was mentioned in the first novel, Fly with Me, myself and I’m sure everyone else included was sure he would next up for the CC treatment. It’s simply genius the way our frenzy was fed with Chanel’s decision to delay our gratification.

At this stage I have to point out the fantastic flow of this series. The onus of the first novel was the red hot passion between Noah and Jordan, and Into the Blue focused on Eric and Becca’s skilfully emotive second chance romance. With all the novels in the series I was completely enamoured with the integrity of each couple. They all drew on something new from me, cementing its must read status. Delaying Easy’s story only seemed to heighten my enthusiasm for a story that was begging to be told.

It may be a strange thing to say but I felt as though I already knew Easy. He had a reputation of being a ladies man, but no one would dare deny his veracity. He’s a man who is loyal to a fault, and being in love with his late best friend’s widow is a personal hell for him. He has been in love in Dani from the moment he saw her, and distraught as the realisation is, he has long come to the fact that the most he would ever be was a friend.

Unrequited love is a huge draw for me as a reader. This combined with the forbidden element made for heavenly reading. On Broken Wings was an anticipatory delight and there’s no part of it I did not love.

Through their friendship he has been a huge support to Dani, and has been with her through her darkest times. Through it all he has always been respectful and set aside his feelings for her. Navigating their friendship since her husband’s passing is uncharted territory and it’s an eye opening experience for them to discover how entwined their lives are.

I lived for this romance. I became its personal cheerleader. Easy and Dani are characters that deserve so much happiness and in finding theirs, I found mine for them. The abundance of angst, emotion, and passion along with my personal love of this couple and series, make it one of my top reads of 2016.

Originally a Florida girl, CHANEL CLEETON moved to London where she received a bachelor’s degree from Richmond, The American International University in London and a master’s degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science. Chanel fell in love with London and planned to stay there forever, until fate intervened on a Caribbean cruise and a fighter pilot with smooth dance moves swept her off her feet. Now, a happily ever after later, Chanel is living her next adventure.

Law school made Chanel realize she’d rather spend her days writing sexy stories than in a courtroom, and she hasn’t looked back since. An avid reader and hopeless romantic, she’s happiest curled up with a book. She has a weakness for handbags, her three pups, and her husband.
