by: Christina Phillips

Contemporary Romance

OUT NOW!! 


Synopsis

I like my sex dirty and disposable. I'm not into commitment or chicks who want more than one night. My brothers and club come first, second and last. Until she walks into my life. Classy, rich and so out of my league it's crazy. A week together should get her out of my system, but this good girl is so bad when we're all alone and I can't get enough of her. I don't do forever, but she's hooked me so bad I don't ever want to let her go. Except there's no way a princess can live in my world and I sure as hell won't live in hers...

Excerpt
I pull her close, and she winds her arms around me, which makes me almost forget what I was about to say. 

“What you see is what you get with me.” 

“Hmm,” she says as though she doesn’t believe a word. 

“Big, bad, tough guy on the outside. That’s okay, your secret’s safe with me.” I snort with laughter. 

“No secret, Grace.” I like saying her name. 

“That’s me, inside and out.” 

“If you say so.” 

“When I get you home, I’ll prove it to you.” 

“Do you live far from here?” With my arm still wrapped around her, I once again make for the door. 

“Nah. Just a couple of blocks. Won’t take long.” 

“Can we pick my luggage up first?” I pause, hand on doorknob. 

“Luggage?” 

“Yes. From my car. You know, toothbrush and…stuff.” 

Her cheeks are pink and she gives a little shrug. 

“If I’m staying the night I need my things.” 

“Sure.” My mind fills with the happy vision of Grace in my shower. I pull open the door, keen to get home and put that particular fantasy into action. Tension vibrates from her as we walk back into the bar. I swagger across the room, ignoring the glances from my brothers and friends, and they soon get the message. 

Instead of catcalls and jeers, they go back to their business, and Grace gives a relieved sigh as the door swings shut behind us. 

“At least it’s stopped raining.” She lowers her umbrella. 

“That’s my car, over there.” I glance across the street and there’s no mistaking which car she’s talking about. It’s a silver Mercedes coupe, and if I don’t warn my brothers the car’s off-limits, it’ll be picked clean by morning. 

She opens the trunk and takes out an overnight case, then looks at me expectantly, as though she’s waiting for me to haul out the massive case that takes up the entire space. Is she leaving home or going on vacation? It’s none of my business, and I don’t know why the question even enters my head. 

“You need all this shit for one night?” 

“No, but I need a change of clothes.” She frowns as though something’s just occurred to her. 

“Oh, you mean we’re walking to your house? I thought you’d have your car here. It doesn’t matter, I can make do.” She goes to shut the trunk, and I hold it open. 

“I don’t have a car.” Seriously, is she really that clueless? Her surprised glance tells me that yeah, she really is. I haul her case out and slam the trunk. 

“There’s really no need.” She waves a finger at her case. 

“I don’t expect you to carry it along the street. It’s too heavy.” 

“The hell it is.” Even if the damn thing were full of bricks I wouldn’t back down now. 

“You better have some killer underwear in here as payback.”

Rough & Ruthless by Hayley Faiman **RELEASE**


 Rough & Ruthless
Series: Notorious Devils MC #4
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: MC Romance
OUT NOW!
Cover Designed by: Cassy at Pink Ink Designs




Mary-Ann Lukin has never had it easy. Having survived the torments of abuse for far too long, it's a miracle that life somehow managed to leave her with a little bit of hope—hope of a future filled with happiness. 
Max "MadDog" Duhart has lived more than one lifetime, earning the respect he's due as the president of the Original Charter of Notorious Devils. Nevertheless, with life still yet to live, he wants more than the regret that's tarnished his past. 
Their connection is instant, though they know they shouldn't act on it—not with more than thirty years between them. Not with their families tied together by the club's brotherhood. 
Yet, there's something about the sweet, broken woman that whispers of a fresh start for an old man. And while he may be rough and ruthless, she cannot deny the way she feels when she looks into his haunted blue eyes.
One phone call. One cry for help. One motorcycle ride, and life as they know it is never the same.

SHIVERING FEAR By Tressa Morris Hern ***SIGNED COPY***

SHIVERING FEAR

.

Tressa Morris Hern
.

It wasn't long ago that I connected with this amazing author, her writing is purely beautiful. It also didn't take long to fall head over heels with SHIVERING FEAR. I mean, how can you not. I might only be a little over half way, but if it wasn't for time restraint, I'd be inhaling every word until the very last page. Soon..

Now, I don't know how often I can say that a 'thank you' would never be enough, but it truly is always a privilege when a SIGNED COPY is sent from an author. I don't know what I ever do to deserve any ARC's or signed copies. The grin on my face always gets a little more infectious upon realizing I get the chance to hold not just the physical book of a story I fell in love with, but a signed copy too. 

That small detail, that tinny signature or a note, something about that permanently marked at the start of the book? *insert heart melting with happiness HERE*

Ever since I was a tinny freckled little girl, I gravitated towards books like any other child would to a new toy. So now, being a blogger, reviewer and writer, meeting authors that are stunning and a little weird like me, each to their own way? Someone please pinch me?! 



I will probably keep on rambling, it's quite normal for me.. yeah.. now you know :) 

Long story short, I just wanted to send huge THANK YOU to the stunning Ms Tressa. I can't stop staring at my Sam Matthews copy.. *smiles like an idiot*

<3



Want to delve into Sam and Michelle's story, I don't think you really have an option considering they NEED to already be on your TBR, then here is a little more about them. 

Shivering Fear (blurb):


Michelle Jackson and Sam Matthews are a young couple in love, having been brought together in a backdrop of family-owned corporate drama. An inexperienced Michelle gives herself over to Sam even though he's unsure of staying in a relationship with her whilst having to deal with fallout from his father's gambling problem and its detrimental effect on the family business. 

When Michelle is kidnapped by those to whom Sam's father owes money, will all bets be off? 

Can their love survive the threats of Chicago's underworld thugs, let alone the appearance of one handsome Alex Mason?

DEFY by LJ Shen **RELEASE TOUR**


Defy
Series: Sinners of Saints #0.5

by: L.J Shen

Genre: Contemporary Romance

OUT NOW

My name is Melody Greene, and I have a confession to make.
I slept with my student, a senior in high school.
Multiple times.
I had multiple orgasms.
In multiple positions.
I slept with my student and I enjoyed it.
I slept with my student and I’d do it all over again if I could turn back time.
My name is Melody Greene, and I got kicked out of my position as a teacher and did my walk of shame a la Cersei Lannister from the principal’s office, minutes after said principal threatened to call the cops on me.
My name is Melody Greene, and I did something bad because it made me feel good.
Here is why it was totally worth it. 
Defy is a smutty, insta-love, insta-lust short novella. Defy is a prequel to Vicious (Sinners of Saint #1). It is recommended, but unnecessary, to read Defy before reading Vicious.




L.J. Shen resides in sunny California with her husband, son, chubby cat and wild, wild dreams.
Her passion is to write badass stories, sushi, UFC and her awesome family and friends (not in this order, though. Obviously, sushi comes before writing. Oh, and also the family part.)

She spend the first half of her twenties traveling the world and is now paying all the fun with extra shifts in front of her MacBook. Feel free to contact her on her Facebook page. She loves to hear from her readers.
