Convincing herself she could have fun without getting attached, Natalie treats herself to a weekend tangled in the sheets with him. But that lie she told herself pops faster than champagne bubbles.

NEW RELEASE – Hard Screw (Tuff Built #2) by Jagger Cole





Sometimes, it takes a firm grip and a big wrench.
Scarlett might be Hollywood’s hottest young talent agent, but when a fixer-upper out in Colorado near her top client goes on the market, she trades glitz and glamor for quaint and rustic.
But there’s nothing quaint about big, hard, buff, and in the buff Sean Tuff—the gorgeous and built local construction foreman she walks in on “testing out” her outdoor shower. Scarlett’s hired Sean to do some renovations on the new house. But his skilled hands and big…tool have a different job in mind.
Rough, driven, and hard as nails. Sean Tuff put love in his review mirror years ago when he moved back home to start his construction business. He’s not exactly thrilled to be working for the client who out-bid his dream house out from under him. But the second he lays eyes on Scarlett, he knows exactly what else is about to be under him.
She’s all curves, sass and vinegar; he’s all muscles, growls and a walled-off heart. It’s a match destined for a tear-down, but sometimes, all it takes is a firm grip, a little sweat, and a big wrench. Sean’s about to show Scarlett he’s every inch the man for the job.


BLP REVIEW – Tracy

Hard Screw was another fun read from Jagger Cole. After reading Big Deck I was looking froward to Sean and Scarlett’s book.

While it was as entertaining, hot and dirtily sexy as the first book in the Tuff Built series, it didn’t grab my attention quite the same as Hollis & Heather’s story did, not sure why, but nevertheless, I still enjoyed this romp.

I did like how Sean dealt with the issue that came up between them and the problems that it could have caused. I’m looking forward to more from Mr Cole and hope this isn’t the last in the Tuff Built books.

4*



Jagger Cole likes his romance books like he likes his martinis—extra dirty, with a twist. A reader first and foremost, Jagger got his start with steamy romance almost ten years ago, writing especially dirty and somewhat perplexing Star Wars erotic fan-fiction for online message boards.
After deciding to hang up his writing boots, Jagger worked in advertising for a number of years pretending to be Don Draper. It worked enough to convince a woman way out of his league to marry him, though, which is a total win.
Now, Dad to two little princesses and “Daddy” to a Queen, Jagger is thrilled to be back at the keyboard.
When not writing or reading steamy romance books, he can be found woodworking, enjoying good whiskey, and grilling outside—rain or shine.

RELEASE BLITZ – THRUST/THROB (Lost Devils MC) by Madison Faye

Lost devil. Ruthless savage. Broken beast.
Years ago, I died. A black night and a hail of bullets stole the life I knew and the brothers I loved. But heaven spit me back out, and I wound up in hell.
“Hell” in this case is the fighting pits of Jorge Del Campo, head of Mexico’s most brutal cartel family. In here, they call me Hush Hush. I don’t speak, I don’t dream of a life outside of these bars. I fight, and I kill, like the beast they say I am.
Until an angel visits hell. She’s a rose in the desert. A bloom in the burnt, charred remains of a life ripped from me. A softness in a cruel world of pain and death. She’s Catalina Del Campo—Jorge’s daughter.
Wanting her is forbidden. Touching her could mean death. Love is something I forgot I could feel, but loving her might just be my salvation.
Years ago, I died. Heaven said no. But the devil? Well, in this hell, I am the devil. But last night, this devil saw an angel. And now?
Heaven help them all…


USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling contemporary romance author Madison Faye is the dirty alter ego of the very wholesome, very normal suburban housewife behind the stories. While she might be a wife, mom, and PTA organizer on the outside, there’s nothing but hot, steamy, and raunchy fantasies brewing right beneath the surface!
Tired of keeping them hidden inside or only having them come out in the bedroom, they’re all here in the form of some wickedly hot stories. Single-minded alpha heroes, sinfully taboo relationships, and wildly over-the-top scenarios. If you love it extra dirty, extra hot, and extra naughty, this is the place for you! 
(Just don’t tell the other PTA members you saw her here…)
Madison’s books have also been featured on MTV.com, VICE.com, and (probably) numerous anti-smut government and concerned citizens watch-lists.

BLOG TOUR – Savage Love (The Savage Trilogy #3) by Lisa Renee Jones

ABOUT SAVAGE LOVE
Title: Savage Love
Series: The Savage Trilogy #3

Author: Lisa Renee Jones

Release Date: April 21, 2020

The third and final book in the Savage Trilogy… 
They say all is fair in love and war, but I really don’t give a damn about fair. In fact, when protecting those I love, fair is the last thing on my mind. Now that I’m back in Candace’s life, those who have used her to try to control me, may well put up a final fight, but they will not win. They will lose and badly.


BUY SAVAGE LOVE
EXCERPT
I don’t just kiss Candace, I ravish her, I drink her in like a man lost in a desert, dying of a thirst he cannot quench. And I was until I found her again. What’s worse is, that desert was of my own making, a desolate fucking desert I’m done with because, thank fuck, she’s not done with me. 
Hugging her close, I hold her like this moment is it, like this is the last time I might ever hold her again. I kiss her just the same, like I will never kiss her again. I’ve never kissed her with that kind of desperation before now, and not because I didn’t love her. I just always took for granted that tomorrow would come. And I always intended to come back, but I didn’t and now I know, shit happens. People die, tomorrow is not always guaranteed. 
She knows this kiss is different, too. It’s in the way she kisses me back, the way she twists her fingers around my T-shirt. In the way she jerks back, parting our lips, searching my face. In the intensity of her green eyes when they meet mine, the sudden parting of lips, now swollen from my kiss, at what she finds, she orders, “Do not kiss me like this is goodbye, Rick Savage, damn you.” 
She tries to dislodge herself from my grip but I hold onto her. “Don’t run.” 
She gapes. “Run? Me? I’m not the one who ran.” I physically flinch with those well-deserved words, but she’s not done. “If you want to say goodbye, just say goodbye, Rick.”
“I’m not saying goodbye, Candace.” I catch her hair around my fingers and drag her gaze to my unguarded gaze. I let her see the torment in me. I let her see the guilt. I let her see the dark need in me that isn’t going away like I’m not going away. “This is not goodbye,” I repeat. “This is me making sure that you’re properly kissed, fucked, licked, and loved, the way you deserve to be.”
“It feels like goodbye.”
“No, and one day you’ll trust me enough to know that a dark night doesn’t take us there again. I promise you, you will. Soon.”
“How soon?”
“New York. It’s going to change everything.”
“Can we go now?” she asks hopefully, but we both know we can’t. We both know we have to see tomorrow out. 
“I wish we could, baby. I wish we could.”
My mouth slants over hers, my tongue licking deeply, possessively and I make sure every answer she wants is right there in this kiss. I make sure she knows that I’m not fucking living another day without her. She moans into my mouth and when my hands settle on her spine, she arches into me. I rotate her toward the couch, pressing her against the back, my hands finding that soft smooth skin under her T-shirt. 
Goosebumps lift on her skin and I tear my mouth from hers. “You have always been exactly what I need.” 
“Am I?”
“Oh yes, baby. You are. I felt you even when you weren’t with me. Every day I was away, I felt you. I missed you. I needed the hell out of you.” I catch the hem of her shirt and toss it, my gaze lowering to her breasts, my fingers tracing the swell above the black lace of her bra, then finding her nipple through that lace. 
She sucks in a breath and catches my hand. “Rick, I—”
“God, I love when you say my damn name…”




BLP REVIEW – Tracy

I binge read Savage Love… I started it as soon as I was up and had a coffee in my hand (due to the lockdown I’m currently stuck a home, so what better thing to do??) and didn’t put my kindle down until I’d finished Rick & Candace’s story!!!

This third and final instalment of the series was fab and it was definitely worth the wait… yeah, the cliffhangers in books one and two were majorly frustrating BUT they got us to this book and tied things together for us!

There was action, suspense, mystery (who hired who to do what??? Honestly, things were a bit WTH for a time…). The Walker guys were once again in the mix, what’s not to love about that?

We found out what had been going on, the catalyst for Rick’s involvement in this particular mission and we got to see how things were gonna work out for our couple.

As ever Savage and Candy were HAWT as hell. All through this there has been enough reason for one or both of them to walk away but I loved the connection they had and that this time both of them were willing to fight for their future…. if they indeed had one!

There was a surprise appearance by two of LRJ’s other characters – don’t you just love when an authors books crossover?

An excellent end to the Savage Trilogy. I cannot wait for what’s coming next from Ms Jones.

5* definite recommended read!

She was the light in my dark life. The sunshine that warmed me and made me smile.
We had one summer. One perfect summer, until the day it ended.
Years later, she walked back into my life. Older. Sadder. More beautiful than ever.

How can I prove to her that summer was real?
How do I make her see that boy that loved her then, still loves her now?
How do we get back to the summer when we were us?

 


 


Excerpt:

I pulled into the garage, wondering if Sunny was still asleep in my bed. Part of me hoped she was. She worked too hard, and I wanted to spoil her today.

But entering the house, I had my answer. All I could smell was biscuits. I found Sunny, not in my bed, but in the kitchen, wearing one of my dress shirts, the tails hanging down to her knees, and a pair of my heavy socks. Her hair was pulled into a ponytail, her face free from makeup, and she looked adorable.

She looked up as I came around the corner, her welcoming smile bright. I headed straight for her, catching her in my arms and lifting her off the ground. I crashed my mouth to hers and kissed her long, hard, and passionately. She plunged her hand into the hair at the nape of my neck, kissing me back with equal fervor. I eased back, dropping my face to her neck with a groan.

“You have no idea what seeing you in my kitchen is doing to me right now.”

She wrapped her legs around my waist, laughing low in her throat. “I think I can, um, feel your reaction.” She rubbed against me. “I think you’re happy to see me. Or your cell phone is in your pocket,” she deadpanned.

“Baby, my cell phone doesn’t take up that sort of real estate.”

She giggled, the sound lilting and strange in my house. I liked it. I was about to kiss her again when the timer on the oven went off and she pushed away.

“Cockblocked by biscuits,” I muttered and set her on her feet.

REVEIW – Unbreakable (Cloverleigh Farms #4) by Melanie Harlow

“Unbreakable is everything you expect from a Melanie Harlow novel: emotional, sexy and a love that’s worth risking it all for. I could not get enough of Henry and Sylvia’s story!”

— Corinne Michaels, New York Times bestselling author

Unbreakable, an all new “do not miss” sexy and emotional second chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is available now!

Unbreakable AMAZON

In hindsight, I should not have had that fifth mimosa at Breakfast with Santa.

Or the sixth, seventh, and eighth.

But my shame over the public meltdown that resulted was nothing compared to being abandoned by my husband of fifteen years for a much younger woman—and did I mention she’s pregnant?

For the sake of my children and my pride, I pack up and head for my childhood home and the small town where I grew up. Cloverleigh Farms would be the perfect place for a fresh start.

Falling for Henry DeSantis wasn’t part of the plan.

Sure, he’s easy on the eyes and hard in the bedroom (also the hallway, the bathtub, and on top of his desk), but he’s newly divorced too, and things between us are moving so fast I’m afraid neither one of us has had enough time to heal. Not to mention the fact that I’m a single mom now—my kids have to come first.

But Henry makes me feel beautiful and sexy and wanted and strong—things I haven’t felt in years. We understand each other, and when I’m in his arms, I’m tempted to trust again. To love again. To let myself be loved without fear.

But deep down, I’m terrified.

Is this all too much, too soon? Or am I a fool to let a second chance at happily ever after pass me by?

Excerpt

“Want to unzip my dress?”

“That would be a hell yes.” He took my hand and pulled me to my feet. “Turn around.”

I turned, lifting my hair off my neck. Slowly, he pulled the zipper down my back, and the red dress fell to my feet. Stepping out of it, I suddenly felt self-conscious. I hadn’t been fully naked in front of a man without the cover of darkness in a long time. I hadn’t been fully naked in front of anyone but my ex since I was twenty—and I didn’t have that body anymore. I’d had two children. Even though I knew it was stupid, that nagging little prickle of insecurity still stung . . . I’d been left for a younger woman. He’d told her I didn’t excite him anymore. Was my body to blame? Before I could stop myself, I covered my chest with my arms, wrapping one fist inside the other and tucking them beneath my chin.

“Hey.” Henry turned me by the shoulder so I was facing him again. “Don’t do that.”

“What?” I had trouble looking him in the eye.

He tipped my chin up. “Don’t hide yourself from me.”

“I’m not hiding,” I said, but of course I was.

Taking me by the wrists, he forced my arms down to my sides, and looked at me.

I started to panic a little.

I was totally bare before him—stretch marks, C-section scar, less-than-perky breasts and all. Unlike many of my friends, I’d never had surgery to restore my post-baby body to its former tight, bouncy, unmarked state. Now I was kind of wishing I had.

I’d never felt so naked or vulnerable in my life.

“Sylvia, I’m going to say this once,” Henry said seriously. “And then, since you’ve learned not to trust words entirely, I’m going to spend the rest of the night showing you that it’s true—I think you are the most exquisite woman on the face of the earth, in every way. There is no part of your body, no inch of your skin, that isn’t perfect, because it’s yours.” He took my head in his hands and kissed me, hard but sweet. “And all I want to do is make you mine, even if it’s just for tonight.”

“Yes,” I whispered. I rose up on my toes, pressing my lips to his again while my hands went to work unbuttoning his shirt. “Make me yours tonight, Henry. That’s all I want to be.”


BLP REVIEW – Tracy

This series just keeps getting better!!!

Unbreakable is the fourth book in this series and here we meet Sylvia (the oldest of the Sawyer sisters) and Henry DeSantis.

Previously in the series we knew that things in Sylvia’s life were far from perfect but in Unbreakable we find out just how wrong things have become.

Henry works at the Cloverleigh Farms winery and he himself is coming off the back of a divorce he never saw coming.

Sylvia has come home with her kids following the breakdown of her marriage. Gods, she was funny at times, especially when she dropped her inhibitions – though my heart broke for her at how her life had turned out after putting her family before herself. She is understandably self conscious and her belief in herself has taken a nosedive BUT gods, Henry was so very good for her.

Henry’s life isn’t where he expected it to be and he’s thrown himself completely into his job but what happens when they Sawyer sister who’s already grabbed his attention comes home? Hell, Henry turned out to be so much more than I was expecting and man, he was hot when it came to Sylvia.

There was an immediate spark and attraction between them. They understood each other, the loss they felt and the desire to feel whole again. Though it took them a bit to sort themselves out and believe in what they could have together they were perfect and I was rooting for them from the start!!

I adore our trips back to Cloverleigh Farm and finding out what’s going on with the sisters and their other halves. There were a few breadcrumbs dropped about April’s past and I cannot wait to read about her and the man that is destined to be in her life.

A no-brainier 5* read that I most definitely recommend… This whole series from Melanie Harlow is one that you should without doubt check out!

When she’s not writing or reading, she gets her kicks from TV series like VEEP, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, and Homeland.

She lifts her glass to romance readers and writers from her home near Detroit, MI, where she lives with her husband, two daughters, and pet rabbit.

RELEASE BLITZ – Heartless King (#5 in the Kings of Rittenhouse Series) by Maya Hughes

Title: Heartless King

Series: Standalone book #5 in the

Author: Maya Hughes


Genre: Contemporary Romance
Blurb
Two blue lines. That means not pregnant, right? Right? Oh, sh*t.
Five years ago, Colm Frost asked me to marry him and I ran. I ran from my painful past too raw and fresh to escape. He was the only one who looked at me like I wasn’t broken and made me believe it. He made me feel it.
Now, he’s the hot, angry, hockey player on the mend. 
I’m the physiotherapist who’s supposed to get him back on his feet. 
I don’t think our night together was what his doctor prescribed, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t dreamt of him every time I close my eyes. I woke up beside him with my body still singing from the way he fanned the flames of my desire, but I couldn’t stay.

His lips on my neck. His hands wrapped around my waist. His impressive…ahem,
touch leaving me breathless.

One moment of wild inhibition and it’s come back to bite me in the butt. Kind of like he did that night.
But a baby? Our night was supposed to be a one time thing, closing a door on the future I couldn’t handle. 
Will this new bump in the road be everything we needed to find our forever?


Heartless King is a standalone friends to enemies to lovers, accidental
pregnancy romance that brings all the laugh out loud, angsty feels!

Excerpt

The question had been running through my head all night: how could I get her to leave? But I didn’t want her to go. And now the maple syrup and cinnamon taste of her sent me hurtling close to the edge of my control. Those reserves were running on fumes. 
Everyone else had been run off by my anger or blinded by my money, but not her. If anything, she battled me, pushing me like she knew I needed it. She wouldn’t let me hide the splintered and cracked pieces of myself that I was barely holding together. 
She didn’t push me to talk, just slid in past my defenses and got me to say more than I should. 
“Do you want me to stop?” I ran my fingers through her hair, tugging on the roots. 
Her lips parted in a gasp and I deepened the kiss, needing to taste even more of her. She’d teased me, eating that French toast that smelled like a vanilla and cinnamon factory had exploded when it arrived at our table.
She stared into my eyes, heavy breaths shuddering past her lips. “Hell no.”
