Cover Reveal: Guilty As Sin and Revealing In Sin by Meghan March

Guilty until proven innocent.

That’s the way the world works, right?

I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable.

The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.

If only I could forget just how easily Lincoln Riscoff can drag me under his spell.

Whitney Gable is the kind of woman you fight to the death to protect.

To keep.

To cherish.

I’ve finally learned my lesson, and it’s time to prove I’m the man who’s worthy of her.

I don’t care what it takes, because failure is not an option.

No matter who or what stands in our way—this time, she’ll be mine forever

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.

A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.

Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.

I didn’t know or care what her name was.

Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.

She hates me, and she should.

I objected on her wedding day.

Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.

They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.

I’ll never be done with her.

Starting Over

Starting Over

This last year of my life has had more ups and downs than I can count. Losing a loved one debilitates life. In a way my life slowed down, while the rest of the world still goes at full speed. Losing my mom affected me in more ways than I realized it would. I fell hard. The things that brought me pleasure I didn’t seem to have an interest in anymore. I went through the motions but I honestly don’t think I was living. I tried, but most days it was too hard to do anything other than work and take care of my son. I couldn’t even find comfort in reading.

As someone who is an avid reader, reading 100+ books a year it was hard to find comfort in the pages and words. I honestly felt like I have lost part of who I was and have been struggling to find a sense of that person again. About a week ago I woke up from a horrible sleep with the want and the need to read. Something that hasn’t happened in almost a year. I saw that as a very good sign. In the past week I had a wonderful meeting with some friends, I’ve read two books and when I wake up in the mornings I actually want to get out of bed.

The last couple of days I have been thinking hard. I have come to the conclusion that I am starting over. I’m taking control of myself, starting over and making things better for myself. It’s not like my life Is terrible, it just hasn’t been healthy for sometime. It’s time to get back to being happy and enjoying life. I will always miss my mom but it’s time to find a different way to channel the hurt.

Picking up a book and reading gave me a sense of peace that I haven’t felt in a very long time. So today August 1, 2018 I declare my starting over day. Today I make the conscious effort to make my days happier. To do more than just go through the motions. To enjoy life again, to the fullest extent that it can be. Whether they be simple pleasures or worldly goals today is the day I start making it happen.

Thank you for sticking with me and my sad blog for the last year. I promise the caffeinated spark of Coffee Books Life is coming back in full strength. My love of books and reading has never left me and I’m ready to again share the passion I have for reading romance. Romance reader and authors are some of the most wonderful people. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to be part of this community. No family.

Audio Review: Falling For The Bad Boy by Kennedy Fox

Falling For The Bad Boy

Kennedy Fox

Bedtime Reads Series, Book 1

Audiobook

 Published February 14th 2018 by audiOMG!
(first published November 2nd 2017)

WELCOME TO KENNEDY FOX BEDTIME READS!

Steamy love stories you can read in one sitting! After everyone goes to bed for the night, snuggle up with a Kennedy Fox Bedtime Read! These are full-length standalone novels that are filled with humor, insta-lust, blistering heat, and are faster-paced, but still have everything you love about a Kennedy Fox book!

Never trust a man who answers the door wearing nothing more than a pair of low-cut jeans and a panty-melting smirk.

That should’ve been my first sign.

I write about guys like him for a living–sexy and charming, yet reluctant to get into a serious relationship. His body screams sex appeal, but his condescending personality makes him a classic f*ckboy.

And I want nothing to do with that.

Writing romance novels comes with its perks—traveling, meeting new people, creating characters from the voices in my head—but Ethan Rochester enters my life and rearranges my preconceived notions about writing what inspires you.

Meeting him was fate, but falling for him was inevitable.
And forgetting him will be impossible.

**This is a complete STANDALONE novel–filled with plenty of humor, steam, & romance! 18 & up only due to explicit sexual content, language, and adult content.
Previously published as My Week with the Bad Boy by Brooke Cumberland & Lyra Parish**

 

 

4 Stars

Vada has had trouble finding the words to complete her latest romance novel. Trying to ignite her create a flow, Vada rents a guest house in Charleston. Her spunk and sass come out full force, when the hottie she is renting from gets her creativity flowing while tying her body in knots.

Ethan has a bit of an ego and all the looks to make the ladies swoon. A very talented artist, who knows how to use his hands very well. His ego is a cover for a past that keeps sad memories lurking in his present. Once Ethan allows his cockiness to fall to the side, the man is pretty likable, well make that lovable.

Narrators Joe Arden and CJ Bloom are fantastic. Their voice talents truly bring My Week with the Bad Boy alive. The reader or in this case listener can truly feel the emotion throughout the story. Lots of humor and amazing banter keep the laughs coming through the entire story. The emotions are present, however the amount of humor keeps the story on the lighter side. Vada and Ethan get each other twisted in knots and have a good time doing it. My Week with the Bad Boy is hands down a fun story.

Review: More Than Love You by Shayla Black

More Than Love You

Shayla Black

More Than Words Series, Book 3

February 13th 2018 by Shelley Bradley, LLC

I’m Noah Weston. For a decade, I’ve quarterbacked America’s most iconic football team and plowed my way through women. Now I’m transitioning from star player to retired jock—with a cloud of allegation hanging over my head. So I’m escaping to the private ocean-front paradise I bought for peace and quiet. What I get instead is stubborn, snarky, wild, lights-my-blood-on-fire Harlow Reed. Since she just left a relationship in a hugely viral way, she should be the last woman I’m seen with.

On second thought, we can help each other…

I need a steady, supportive “girlfriend” for the court of public opinion, not entanglements. Harlow is merely looking for nonstop sweaty sex and screaming orgasms that wring pleasure from her oh-so-luscious body. Three months—that’s how long it should take for us both to scratch this itch and leave our respective scandals behind. But the more I know this woman, the less I can picture my life without her. And when I’m forced to choose, I’ll realize I don’t merely want her in my bed or need her for a ruse. I more than love her enough to do whatever it takes to make her mine for good.

More Than Love You is a sexy and emotional standalone novel in the More Than Words Series.

 

 

5 Stars

Harlow is a remarkable woman in many ways. So much strength and cunning yet hiding a world of hurt. She’s quick witted and a fast thinker. I loved the compassion that she shows and shared for other.

Noah has a dedication and determininess that can make just about anyone swoon. His love of family and life is refreshing. There was just something in his nature that made me really like him. Also being a sexy, athlete doesn’t hurt one bit.

A truly remarkable story with two amazingly deep people. Noah and Harlow were made for each other. They complement each other in a way that allowed the weaknesses to be strengthened, allowed there strengths to shine and wounds to be healed. Noah and Harlow show what I think love truly is. A wave of emotions that overtakes, the complexities and work that a relationship takes and the bumps in the road that make it all worth wild. More than Love You is so much more than my words can say to give justice to a book I totally fell in love with.

I discovered Shayla Black when I saw her name of the attending authors list to my very first book conference. I made it a goal to read one book by every author that attended. Shayla Black is the one and only author that I have ever called out from work because I stayed up all night reading my first ever book by her and had to stay home to read the next in the series. It’s somewhat needless to say that I fell in love with Ms. Black’s work from the moment I started reading. The More Than Word Series has gripped on to me in a way that her other books haven’t touched. More Than Love You, in my opinion is the best of the three and now my favorite book Ms. Black has written to date.

Review: A Merciful Secret by Kendra Elliot

A Merciful Secret
Kendra Elliot
Mercy Kilpatrick series, Book 3
 
 Kindle Edition, 1st edition, 332 pages
Expected publication: January 16th 2018 by Montlake Romance

A pair of ritual murders could expose Mercy Kilpatrick to something terrifying: her own past…

Raised off the grid by survivalists, Mercy Kilpatrick believed in no greater safeguard than the backwoods of Oregon. Unforgiven by her father for abandoning the fold for the FBI, Mercy still holds to her past convictions. They’re in her blood. They’re her secrets—as guarded as her private survival retreat hidden away in the foothills.

In a cabin near her hideaway, Mercy encounters a young girl whose grandmother is dying from multiple knife wounds. Hundreds of miles away, a body is discovered slashed to death in a similar way. The victims—a city judge and an old woman living in the woods—couldn’t be more different. With the help of police chief Truman Daly, Mercy must find the killer before the body count rises. Mercy knows that the past has an edge on her. So does her family. How can she keep her secrets now…when they’re the only things that can save her?

 

 4 Stars

 

Kendra Elliott is one of my “go-to” authors for romantic suspense books. When I see her name on a new release I know I am going to get a first-rate gripping thriller which is well-written and maintains my interest throughout the story. A Merciful Secret which is book #3 in Kendra Elliott’s Mercy Kilpatrick series is an excellent example of this author’s fantastic writing skill set. This book has characters who are realistic and relatable to the reader. They have some character flaws, so not perfect unbelievable characters. In this book FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick once again must use her excellent thinking skills and brave and caring attitude to solve a case. Mercy’s love interest, Eagle’s Nest Police Chief Truman Daly stays true to character as well. He must use all his skills to help support Mercy in her endeavers.

The author expertly describes her action scenes so that the reader feels involved personally in all the action. This is a fast-moving thriller which keeps the reader guessing until the end and doesn’t let up so you keep turning the pages eagerly in anticipation of finding out who-done-it!

Blog Tour: Wicked Torture by J. Kenner

BLOG TOUR.jpg

Wicked Torture, an all-new sexy standalone from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner is available NOW!

WickedTorture_Ecover_FINAL

Outwardly, Noah Carter is riding high as the tech world’s hottest new genius. Inside, he’s still reeling from the abduction of his wife and baby daughter eight years ago, and then the devastating discovery of his child’s body. For years, he kept up hope that his wife was alive, but now that she’s been declared legally dead, he’s thrown himself even more deeply into his work, cutting himself off from emotional ties because they just hurt too damn much.

Then he meets Kiki Porter, an eternal optimist with a killer work ethic and dreams of fronting a band. And everything changes. Even though he tries his damnedest to fight it…

Sexually, they are combustible together. But their true fire is emotional, though it is a slow to burn. But once it lights, it is all consuming. The relationship grows emotionally, the sex is hot, things are good.

But just when it’s looking like they might have a real future together, the past comes back to haunt them. And Noah’s going to have to decide what he’s willing to give up for love …

Excerpt:

I lick my lips, waiting. Trying to stand still. Trying not to shatter under the riot of sensations he’s set loose in my body.

And trusting that whatever he wants of me next will take me that much further.

This is the Noah I remember. The man who held my pleasure in his hand. Who knew my body as well as I did.

A man who could set me on fire with nothing more than a glance. Whose fingers worked magic on me, and whose cock filled me. Whose words set my imagination soaring.

Slowly, he lowers his mouth to my ear again. And slower still, he whispers, “I want you naked.”

A shiver cuts through me. I picture myself standing between him and the window. Seeing myself as he touches me. Feeling the brush of his clothes as he pulls me close. Vulnerable. His.

Boldly, I reach back and unfasten my bra, then let it drop to the floor. I’m wearing canvas flats, and I kick them off.

I hear him draw in a breath behind me. A simple thing, but the sound is just slightly uneven, and I know that he’s as turned on as I am.

And that, frankly, makes it even hotter.

I keep my back to him, but my eyes are locked on his in the reflection. I lower my hands to my slacks. They’re already unzipped, and now I slide my hand along the waistband, then shimmy out of them, finally kicking them aside.

For a moment, I stand defiantly in my underwear, as if to turn the tables and make him plead with me. But the truth is, I want this, too. I want to stand naked in front of him. I want to see the heat in his eyes as he looks at me.

That’s the power I have, and I want to wield it. I want to bring him to his knees.

I want an explosion. Because there’s too much passion lingering between us. It’s wild and it’s dangerous and it’s combustible. And until we burn through it, it’s going to tie us together.

And as much as I wish we could get back to the past, I know it’s not possible.

We have to get past this thing.

I know it; I’m certain of it.

But right now I’m so damn grateful that the only way clear is through the man himself.

Noah.

For right now at least, I’ll take the moment. I’ll take Noah.

And, I think as I peel off the panties and then stand naked in front of the mirror, I’ll take as much of him as I can get.

About DIRTY FILTHY FIX:

I like sex. Kinky sex. The kinkier the better.

Every day, it’s all I think about as I serve coffee and hand out business agendas to men who have no idea I’m not the prim, proper girl they think I am.

With a day job as the secretary to one of New York’s most powerful men, Hudson Pierce, I have to keep my double life quiet. As long as I do, it’s not a problem.

Enter: Nathan Sinclair. Tall, dark and handsome doesn’t come close to describing how hot he is. And that’s with his clothes on. But after a dirty, filthy rendezvous, I accept that if we ever see each other again, he’ll walk right by my desk on his way to see my boss without recognizing me.

Only, that’s not what happens. Not the first time I see him after the party. Or the next time. Or the time after that. And as much as I try to stop it, my two worlds are crashing into each other, putting my job and my reputation at risk.

Excerpt :

“I’d like a try.” It was the stranger with the green eyes.

Hot damn.

Of course the night would ramp up right when I announced I was leaving. I looked up at him expectantly, but he didn’t approach. I realized he was waiting for my invitation. He was definitely new. Everyone else knew Miss T was one of the most ready and willing participants in the room—to the point where some tried to take advantage of it. I never needed to issue invitations, but I often needed to reinforce boundaries.

“What are you waiting for, then?” I sat up straighter, ignoring Chuck’s grunt of complaint.

The stranger came forward with slow, swaggering steps. When he reached me, he loosened his bowtie a little before lowering himself to one knee at my side. He placed his arm next to mine on the chair, his fingers barely grazing my skin. Goosebumps sprouted up my forearm all the way to my neck, and he hadn’t even bent in to whisper yet.

And then he did. His breath skated over the shell of my ear, and my heart tripped unexpectedly in my chest.

How long had it been since that had happened from just the feel of someone breathing against me?

“I’m going to kiss you one way or another tonight,” he said, low and with such surety a shiver ran down my spine. “It’s your decision whether it’s now or later.”

So. Not just a voyeur then.

He sat back to study my features. My jaw was slack, and I scanned his expression, searching for a hidden motivation. My body tingled from head to toe. I was used to men—strangers—wanting me. I was used to them approaching me. I was used to them telling me how much they desired me.

Why was this man so different?

Maybe it was because those other men always looked everywhere in the room. When their eyes landed on me, I knew I was just one of many options.

This man…

He’d looked around the room. I’d watched him throughout the night. But nothing had interested him. I could tell by the way he was still wearing his jacket, by the way his eyes were only now beginning to dilate as they stared into mine.

He’d studied the room and decided nothing here had interested him but me.

That was definitely not the kink that usually got me off. That was Cinderella-story kind of kink. The fairytale kink with a happy ending was traditional, but a kink all the same—being chased. Being placed on a gilded pedestal. I never wanted to be somebody’s Only One in the Room. I liked having my own space. I liked being able to disappear when I wanted. I liked not having chains or boundaries. I was turning thirty-five soon. I wasn’t a starry-eyed teenager anymore. I knew what I wanted from life and love and relationships and sex. And it wasn’t a pedestal.

About Laurelin Paige:

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

CHERISH HARD

A Hard Play Novel by Nalini Singh

 

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh kicks off her new Hard Play contemporary romance series with a sizzling story that’ll leave you smiling…

 

Sailor Bishop has only one goal for his future – to create a successful landscaping business. No distractions allowed. Then he comes face-to-face and lips-to-lips with a woman who blushes like an innocent… and kisses like pure sin.

 

Ísa Rain craves a man who will cherish her, aches to create a loving family of her own. Trading steamy kisses with a hot gardener in a parking lot? Not the way to true love. Then a deal with the devil (aka her CEO-mother) makes Ísa a corporate VP for the summer. Her main task? Working closely with a certain hot gardener.

 

And Sailor Bishop has wickedness on his mind.

 

As Ísa starts to fall for a man who makes her want to throttle and pounce on him at the same time, she knows she has to choose – play it safe and steady, or risk all her dreams and hope Sailor doesn’t destroy her heart.

Excerpt from CHERISH HARD

Nalini Singh

 

ÍSA WONDERED WHAT THE HELL she was doing.

Being a devil woman, she reminded herself. Having fun for a change. Not being a grandma at twenty-eight years of age.

Still, she couldn’t stop second-guessing herself as Sailor led her out of the house through a side entrance that opened out into a small, manicured garden. “I’ll have to take off my heels,” she whispered when she saw the pebbled path snaking through the garden.

“Want a piggyback ride?” A playful grin. “I promise not to molest your thighs.”

Goose bumps broke out over Ísa’s skin, her nipples tight. Reckless as she was feeling tonight, she might just have taken him up on his offer if she hadn’t been worried her damn dress would split in two. “Maybe when we’re naked,” she said instead, Devil Ísa in full flower.

Groaning, he doubled over as if she’d punched him.

Her lips twitching despite the melting sexual heat liquefying her bones, she leaned down to slip off her heels.

Sailor waited, his hand firm around hers, until she was done. Taking the heels from her, he carried them in his other hand as Ísa padded beside him on the grass that lay on this side of the pebbled path. The path ended at a weathered wooden gate, which, when opened, put them at the top of a narrow walkway that led down onto a beach Ísa couldn’t yet see but could hear.

Her heart crashed in time with the waves as they made their way down to the beach while the mansion behind them pulsed with light and music. But she didn’t turn and run away, she didn’t stop and talk herself out of it, she didn’t attempt to be a sensible adult. She followed a gorgeous, blue-eyed man down a dirt pathway to an effectively private beach.

The sand that had been tracked onto the path was gritty under her feet, the air coming off the sea cool but not cold.

“The water’s going to be icy, isn’t it?” she whispered to his broad back.

“Don’t worry, spitfire. I’ll keep you warm,” was the deep-voiced response. “Stop here.” Jumping down to the beach, he reached up to grab her by the waist, swinging her down as if she were a featherweight.

Something fluffy and mushy came to life inside Ísa. “Here?”

Shaking his head, he said, “Raj told me there’s like a little cove area—not a proper cove, but caused by— There.”

Ísa saw it at once. A huge tree had fallen into the water at some point and smashed up against some rocks where it appeared to be stuck. Between the jutting rocks on either side and the fallen trunk was a naturally created pool. The water within it was pretty calm, and it looked as if they could get to it by clambering over some rocks that didn’t appear too sharp or slippery.

Of course, she’d be walking over those rocks naked.

Ísa looked up at the moon. Imagined it shining on the stark white of her body. Gulped. “Will you close your eyes while I go in the water?” Even Devil Ísa wasn’t up for blinding him with her glow-in-the-dark form.

A glance back. “What’re you going to bribe me with?”

Ísa scowled. “Not pushing you into the water right now.” It was a toothless threat given his muscles and her lack of them.

Rubbing his jaw, he said, “Three tongue kisses. That’s my price, and I’m not budging.”

Ísa wanted to pounce on him all over again. “Two,” she countered.

“Nuh-uh. Three. Or I’m keeping both eyes wide open.” Leaning in, he pressed his nose to hers. “I really want to keep my eyes wide open.”

And Ísa really wanted to kiss him and run her hands all over that sculpted chest. “Three,” she whispered.

Sweet and Sexy

Sailor is the just type of alpha that I love. Strong and confident yet sweet, compassionate and determined. He’s totally swoon worthy. Sailor is a quiet man but knows what he wants out of life.

Ísa was a sweet woman but sadly didn’t stand out for me. Yes, I liked her. As I got to know her she did grow on me, but I didn’t love her. She gave a lot for her family that left her lonely. Seeing her come out of that shell was nice.

Cherish Hard is a wonderful story. Very engaging, fun and likable characters and a good plot. Second characters make their personalities known throughout the story. Adding more wit and humor to a very enjoyable story. Sailor and Ísa have a chance at something wonderful. I love how they opened up to each other without a ton of drama. They let the romance do its magic. A highlight of Cherish Hard was the ties to Rock Kiss series that I adore.
