REVIEW:  AIDEN (VESTED INTEREST) BY MELANIE MORELAND

 

Aiden (Vested Interest #2)Aiden by Melanie Moreland

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


He's the life of the party when everyone's around. Aiden knows how to turn on the charm and make the whole world his stage, but when the lights tone down and the crowds disappear his demons continue to haunt and push him around. Cami brings light into an often dark place. She sees the shadows that linger in his eyes and longs to rescue his soul. Can the boy that nobody wanted become the man she needs him to be? A broken heart, a damaged soul and an unlikely heroine light up the night with compassion and romance. Moreland fires up the senses with some wicked temptation and heartfelt motivation. Inspiration is only an alpha away.

#BAM #Bentley #Maddox #VestedInterest #YourNextBookBoyfriend #TBR #Goodreads #ComingSoon 

 

Haunted by memories of his past, Aiden plays the part of the happy-go-lucky friend. Always ready with a teasing smile or a joke, he is good at hiding his pain. 

Using his impressive physique as a shield, he keeps his past buried beneath his rugged exterior. 

Except, one woman sees through his façade. 

Her green eyes see too much, even as her body tempts him. 

Even as his heart yearns for her. 

Cami is determined to make him realize that he is worthy of being loved. 

He pushes her away at every turn, yet finds himself unable to keep her at arm’s length. 

Who will win this battle of love?

REVIEWONLY A MILLIONAIRE (THE SINCLAIRS) BY J.S. SCOTT

 

Only a Millionaire (The Sinclairs Book 7)Only a Millionaire by J.S. Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Love is...J.S. Scott. She has a way with hearts. From the bruised and damaged to the hauntingly dangerous and the lonely wanderers, her tales of love are also beacons of hope. Love has many subtitles, but the big picture is love is unstoppable. Through the painful hits, the heartbreaking lows, the inspiring highs and the frustrating uh ohs, there is no outrunning it's power. The Sinclairs are living proof of this awe inspiring emotion. In a world of hard knocks, they've thrived and survived. It's heartbreaking to say goodbye, but Only A Millionaire is the sweetest swan song. A chance to revisit old friends, make new ones and be a fool for love all over again. New beginnings, happy endings and loving families are at the heart of another sensational romance. Readers enter with a heavy heart but always leave with a smile. The magic of J.S. Scott.

SPOTLIGHT: CAUGHT UP IN A COWBOY (COWBOYS OF CREEDENCE) BY JENNIE MARTS

 

 

 

 

 


Title: Caught Up in a Cowboy
Author: Jennie Marts
Series: Cowboys of Creedence, #1
Pub Date: May 1, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Western

 

 

This cowboy plays to win

 

Rockford James was raised as a tried-and-true cowboy in a town crazy about ice hockey. Rock is as hot on the ice as he is on a horse, and the NHL snapped him up. Now, injuries have permanently benched him. Body and pride wounded, he returns to his hometown ranch to find that a lot has changed. The one thing that hasn't? His feelings for high school sweetheart and girl-next-door Quinn Rivers.

 

Quinn had no choice but to get over Rock after he left. Teenaged and heartbroken, she had a rebound one night stand that ended in single motherhood. Now that Rock's back—and clamoring for a second chance—Quinn will do anything to avoid getting caught up in this oh-so-tempting cowboy…

EXCERPT

 

Bits of gravel flew behind the tires of the convertible, and Rockford James swore as he turned onto the dirt road leading to the Triple J Ranch. Normally he enjoyed coming home for a visit, especially in the late spring when everything was turning green and the wildflowers were in bloom, but not this spring—not when he was coming home with both his pride and his body badly injured.

His spirits lifted and the corners of his mouth tugged up in a grin as he drew even with what appeared to be a pirate riding a child’s bicycle along the shoulder of the road. A gorgeous female pirate—one with long blond hair and great legs.

Legs he recognized.

Legs that belonged to the only woman who had ever stolen his heart.

Nine years ago, Quinn Rivers had given him her heart as well. Too bad he’d broken it. Not exactly broken—more like smashed, crushed, and shattered it into a million tiny pieces. According to her anyway.

He slowed the car, calling out as he drew alongside her. Her outfit consisted of a flimsy little top that bared her shoulders under a snug corset vest and a short, frilly striped skirt. She wore some kind of sheer white knee socks, and one of them had fallen and pooled loosely around her ankle.

“Ahoy there Matey—you lose your ship?”

Keeping her eyes focused on the road, she stuck out her hand and offered him a gesture unbecoming of a lady—pirate or otherwise. Then her feet stilled on the pedals as she must have registered his voice. “Ho-ly crap. You have got to be freaking kidding me.”

Bracing her feet on the ground, she turned her head, brown eyes flashing with anger. “And here I thought my day couldn’t get any worse. What the hell are you doing here, Rock?”

He stopped the car next to her, then draped his arm over the steering wheel, trying to appear cool. Even though his heart pounded against his chest from the fact that he was seeing her again. She had this way of getting under his skin—she was just so damn beautiful. Even wearing a pirate outfit.

“Hey now—is that any way to speak to an old friend?”

“I don’t know. I’ll let you know when I run into one.”

Ouch. He’d hoped she wasn’t still that bitter about their breakup. They’d been kids, barely out of high school. But they’d been together since they were fourteen, his conscience reminded him, and they’d made plans to spend their future together.

But that was before he got the full ride scholarship and the NHL started scouting him.

And he had tried.

Yeah, keep telling yourself that, buddy.

Okay, he probably hadn’t tried hard enough. But he’d been young and dumb, and swept up in the fever and glory of finally having his dreams of pursuing a professional hockey career coming true.

With that glory, came attention and fame and lots of travel with the team where cute puck bunnies were ready and willing to show their favorite players a good time.

He hadn’t cheated on Quinn, but he came home less often and didn’t make the time for texts and calls. He’d gone to college first while she finished her senior year, and by the time he did come home the next summer, he’d felt like he’d outgrown their relationship, and her, and had suggested they take a mini-break.

Which turned into an actual break, of both their relationship and Quinn’s heart.

But it had been almost nine years since he’d left—they’d been kids, and that kind of stuff happened all the time. Since then, he didn’t make it home a lot, and had only run into her a handful of times. In fact, he probably hadn’t seen her in over a year.

But he’d thought of her. Often. And repeatedly wondered if he’d made the right choice by picking the fame and celebrity of the career and letting go of her.

Sometimes, those summer days spent with Quinn seemed like yesterday, but really so much had happened—in both of their lives—that it felt like a lifetime ago.

Surely she’d softened a little toward him in all that time. “Let me offer you a lift.” The dirt road they were on led to both of their family’s neighboring ranches.

“No thanks. I’d rather pedal this bike until the moon comes up than take a ride from you.”

Yep. Still mad, all right.

Nothing he could do if she wanted to keep the grudge fest going. Except he was tired of the grudge. Tired of them being enemies. She’d been the best friend he’d ever had. And right now he felt like he could use a friend.

His pride had already been wounded, what was one more hit? At least he could say he tried.

Although he didn’t want it to seem like he was trying too hard. He did still have a little pride left, dammit.

Until There Was Us (Montgomery Brothers, #7)Until There Was Us by Samantha Chase

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


When does matchmaking become a family affair? Every Samantha Chase fan, knows the surname Montgomery is synonymous with romance. The Montgomery brood can make a reader fall heart first for their special brand of wooing. Until There Was Us turns an introverted klutz into a irresistible swan. Megan is the Montgomery that never quite fit in. She's smart, clumsy and prefers to blend into the crowd. Once upon a time, she was content to just exist. Until with one look, he showed her how to live. Alex and Megan speak to the insecurities that we all have, but are afraid to acknowledge. Fear is finding the courage to take a risk, despite the outcome.

EXCERPT


Fifteen minutes later, Megan felt like a wet noodle as she slid into Gabriella’s car. They’d already called in the massive dinner order, and really, all Megan needed to do was hold the box in her lap until they got to Summer’s. There were worse ways to spend her time.
Once they arrived, Megan was surprised to see that the guys were there already. Zach came out to greet Gabriella, and Alex came out to take the food. When Megan didn’t immediately move to get out of the car, Alex looked at her curiously.
“You okay?” he asked. “Shopping wear you out?”
She laughed softly. “You have no idea. Those two are lethal.”
Zach and Gabriella had already walked into the house when Ethan came out. “Everything okay?”
Alex handed him the box of food with a laugh of his own. “It seems like shopping took a little more out of her than she expected.”
For a minute Megan considered arguing that he didn’t need to talk about her like she wasn’t there, but she was too tired to.
“I can believe it,” Ethan said. “Next time, pace yourself. Summer and Gabriella are like Olympic medalists where shopping and girls’ days are concerned.” With a smile and a quick wave, he was gone.
Alex crouched next to the open car door. “You gonna make it?” he teased.
With her eyes closed, Megan couldn’t help but smile. “Go. Eat Chinese food. Save yourself. Just leave me here to sleep for a day or two.”
“No can do,” he said softly. “If you don’t join everyone inside for dinner, I’ll have to carry you in.”
Turning her head to the side, she opened her eyes and looked at him.
And almost forgot how to breathe.
Damn, why did he have to be so attractive? Here he was after moving furniture and painting all day, and he looked too good for words. She struggled to keep from leaning forward and tasting him. Her mind had to be playing tricks on her because Megan was fairly certain her memory of how Alex tasted and kissed was being overexaggerated.
He leaned in closer—or maybe she was the one who moved. Either way, they were a heck of a lot closer than they had been a minute ago.
Maybe it was the fact that she was feeling extremely mellow or maybe it was the fact that he was too damn tempting to resist. All Megan wanted was to know whether her mind had been playing tricks on her.
Alex whispered her name as he gently pressed his lips to hers.
Oh…
One of Alex’s hands came up and cupped her cheek, and his touch was both arousing and familiar. Megan mimicked his move and marveled in the scratchiness of his jaw, the warmth of his skin. She sighed and moved a little closer, and the kiss went from chaste to inquisitive to a full onslaught in the blink of an eye. She wanted to pull him into the car or have him pull her out onto the driveway so she could feel more of him, but for now, this would have to do—the taste of him and being consumed by him.
No, her mind hadn’t been playing games with her.
There had been no exaggeration.
Alex Rebat was sexy and sensual and completely lethal.
She pulled back because she couldn’t breathe, but Alex’s hand stayed where it was, gently caressing her skin. Megan leaned into it as she tried to catch her breath.
“It’s still there,” he whispered.
Her eyes drifted closed even as she nodded in agreement because she knew exactly what he was talking about.
“I know now isn’t the time, but—”
“Did she fall asleep out there?” Gabriella called out from the doorway with a small laugh. “Come on, Megan! The food’s getting cold!”
Alex stood and held out a hand to Megan. She accepted it and had to bite her tongue to keep from groaning at how good it felt to touch him. He gently tugged her to her feet, and for a brief moment, she was pressed up against him. Slowly she looked up at him and saw the same emotion on his face she knew was on hers.
Desire.
Plain and simple.
It would be so easy right now to reach up, wrap her arms around him, and pull him in for another kiss. As if reading her mind, Alex released her hand and said, “C’mon. Let’s go have some dinner.”
Mutely, she nodded, and they walked side by side into the house.

TEASER TUESDAY: ROYAL MESS BY JENNA SUTTON

 

 

 

Do you have royal fever? Us too! You don't want to miss ROYAL MESS by Jenna Sutton - see a teaser below and be sure to preorder your copy today!


 

 

About ROYAL MESS

 

Available May 8th

 

From award-winning author Jenna Sutton comes the story of two princes who discover that falling in love is messy

 

Prince Leo’s icy demeanor has earned him an amusing nickname—the Polar Prince. Unfortunately, the king doesn’t see the humor. If Leo wants to secure the throne of Alsania, he must improve his image. Participating in an organ donation campaign seems like a good start. He expects to donate his organs on his deathbed, so he’s surprised to be matched with a complete stranger who needs his help now.

 

Tessa Lulach hates to admit it, but she’s a damsel in distress. When a handsome prince offers to save her with a hunk of his liver, she joyfully accepts. She can’t wait to feel like herself again and return to her beloved flower shop. Instead, her identity is revealed, and the quiet life she loves is turned upside down.

 

As Leo and Tessa deal with the nosy public and ruthless paparazzi, she realizes the Polar Prince is much warmer than he seems—scorching hot, in fact. He willingly gave her a part of his liver, but can he give her his whole heart?

 

*****

 

Everyone loves Prince Marco of Alsania, despite his reckless antics … or maybe because of them. So why does sexy schoolteacher Cassie Lulach prefer a boring investment banker over him? Wounded by her indifference, he has an erotic encounter with a masked woman at a royal ball who reminds him of the one he really wants.

 

After another failed relationship, Cassie is frustrated with immature, inconsiderate guys. Wanting to escape reality, she attends a masquerade ball and finds herself alone with a masked stranger. For the first time in her life, she acts on impulse, only to end up pregnant and absolutely clueless about the identity of her baby’s father.

 

When Marco learns of Cassie’s pregnancy and her plans to raise the baby alone, he promises to be there for her, hoping she’ll finally see him as more than just a playboy prince. But then he discovers she’s the woman from the masquerade ball and panics. Will the truth destroy his chance to win over Cassie, or will he convince her that they can have their own happily ever after?

Everything in moderation. Including virtue.

I step off the plane in Madrid and meet his warm eyes. His crooked smile. His devastating charm.

Worse, he’s courteous. Honorable. Sensuous. Impossibly attractive.

Tavo awakens my desires—my body—without even touching it.

I don’t want to be attracted to him. I’ve made my promises.

My future has already been determined. I'm wearing a ring.

But I can't control this pull to him.

He wants to explore my shadows.

I want to get out of the light.

I shouldn't feel this way...

Problem is, I can't restrain my heart.

 

 

 

EXCERPT:

 

Prologue

 

 

 

From the shadows, he emerges. The small pool of olive oil on his hands glistens in the candlelight and drips on the tile floor through his fingers.

 

Decadent.

 

Hedonistic.

 

Dark.

 

I glimpse his face as he approaches the bed, and he’s grinning wickedly, his hair messy and wild. Bare feet on a cold floor. Shirt off. Jeans unbuttoned, with a thatch of groomed pubic hair peeking out, his root showing.

 

My body tingles and gooseflesh erupts on my arms and legs.

 

His appraising eyes slowly, languidly, take in my form.

 

And I love it. I absolutely love the way he looks at me, like he’s appreciating every freckle, every hair follicle, every curve. My painted toes. My voluptuous calves. My ample thighs. And on up.

 

Another drip of olive oil plops on the floor. Part of me thinks it’s a waste. The other part of me loves this game.

 

The wait, the watching, makes me pant, and I breathe faster and faster as he comes closer. My skin’s glowing in his dim room.

 

What surprise does he have for me this time?

 

The mystery. I love the mystery and anticipation. I don’t know what’s coming next. I don’t know the plan.

 

I have no idea what pleasures are in store for me tonight, but I’m sure they’re coming.

 

He knows what he does to me. He knows I’m resisting writhing on the crisp, rough sheets, which are crackly from drying on a line out back in the cold, wintry Andalusian sun. We’ll soften them soon enough when our bodies join together, but right now they’re almost like brittle sandpaper, chafing my skin.

 

With a bite of his lip, trying to control his smile, he rubs his hands together, making a suction sound from the lubrication. The oil smells fruity, green—if you could smell a color—and bitter.

 

I’ve licked it on his skin enough times to know its taste. The complexity of the flavors. How just a drop on the tongue can make me want so much.

 

I love it.

 

Even though I shouldn’t.

 

My eyes stay on his hands. I’m obsessed with them, especially his callouses. Over time, they’ve built up on the pads of his palms, right next to where his fingers begin. The telltale sign of a life lived working outside, although it’s not what he wants. Sometimes his rough patches crack and bleed, a hazard of using a rake to beat the olives out of the trees.

 

A hazard of using his hands.

 

Those hands, those scratchy callouses now skim down my naked body, half-lit in the dark room, leaving a trail of oil. My hair splays across the pillow. His light touch makes my nipples point up. My pulse pound. My body ache. I arch up into his fingers, wanting more. Needing more.

 

Needing him.

 

We shouldn’t be doing this. This isn’t how my life is supposed to be.

 

But nothing can stop our desire.

BLURB:

 

Fans of New York Times bestselling authors Samantha Young, Sylvia Day, and E. L. James won't want to miss this modern---and deliciously wicked---take on a classic fairy tale . . .

 

She never should have come here. Twice a week, Lily Moore comes to work for me, stealing my breath with her light and beauty and sweetness. She doesn't know the dangerous path she's on. All she knows is that I am a reclusive artist living on a crumbling estate. That I am scarred, broken by life. A beast . . .

 

Lily ignites a hunger unlike anything I've known, one that could shatter the isolated world I live in. Even as I see the same longing for me in her oh-so-blue eyes, I know she belongs to another---one who does not deserve her. But it's just a matter of time before the tension between us breaks. For this beast will have what he desires. To hell with the consequences. This is my world . . . and I will claim my beauty.

 

 

 

 

ENJOY THIS EXCERPT:

Grayson

I can't...

 

Nothing I've ever created with my hands is as beautiful as Lily standing in the doorway of my studio. She's wearing a long-sleeved black jersey dress that accentuates every luscious curve of her body. Black stiletto boots adorn her feet, gilding her sexy form even further.

 

But what has my cock hardened to the point of pain is her hair. I'm so used to seeing it tied up in a ponytail. This evening, however, it falls freely and cascades past her shoulders. How I want to run it through my fingers and then fist it as I take her...

 

"Is something wrong?" she asks innocently. She has no idea how everything is so right at this moment.

 

Say something, you fool. She'll think something really is wrong.

 

"You are stunning, Lily. Words just fail me."

 

A smile of relief lights up her pale face. "Thank you," she whispers, now turning a shade of pink at my compliment.

 

Her eyes roam over me. "You don't look so bad yourself."

 

I straighten out the collar on my suit jacket. I dressed up for her. I haven't worn a suit in years, and I worried if it would still fit me. But it did, like a glove.

 

"My turn to say thank you, then," I reply.

 

She takes a step toward me. "May I?"

 

My heart stops when she comes closer. I can smell her now, a cloud of lavender wafting around her.

 

She reaches up to adjust my tie. "You have no mirrors in the house, Grayson," she offers as an explanation. She pats it down and looks at her handiwork. "There."

 

I swallow deeply, her scent intoxicating me. "Thank you."

 

I can't take my eyes from hers. Suddenly a loud growl escapes her stomach.

 

We both laugh as she blushes. "Well, that wasn't embarrassing."

 

I offer her my hand. "Let's go feed you."

True heroes will do anything to protect the women they love...

 

As the newest recruit at Search and Protect, Raul has a lot to prove. Luckily, he's got the best friend and partner a man could ask for: a highly trained, fiercely loyal German Shepherd Dog named Taz. Together, Raul and Taz make an unbeatable team. But their first mission in Hawaii really puts them to the test when an international kidnapping ring sets its sights on the bravest woman Raul's ever met . . .

 

Mali knows her latest job has put one hell of a target on her back. And on this small island paradise, there's nowhere to hide. With a service dog like Taz, Mali feels safe. Sharing close quarters with a smoldering muscle-for-hire like Raul, she feels something else - an unexpected wave of desire. Raul feels it too. But when the kidnappers make their move, he's got to turn that slow-burning passion into hard-hitting action - and save the life of the woman he loves.

Excerpt:

 

When eighty-five pounds of dog is suddenly in your way, you either stop or trip over him. Momentum played a part in Raul’s decision. He fell forward and spread his arms wide to catch himself on the bed rather than accidentally catch a handful of Mali’s towel. 

He caught a face full of her towel-covered cleavage instead. 

Mali squeaked. 

Raul rolled to the side. 

Taz barked. 

“Sorry.” Jeezus. He tried to get out his apology, his eyes clamped shut. He was not going to remember how good she smelled, a mixture of honey and sea salt and the indefinable, delicate scent of woman. Nope. He wasn’t. Nor was he going to ever think about how nice her cleavage had been. Just enough to bury his face and let him nuzzle without being so full he’d suffocate. The palms of his hands burned with an insane desire to feel her soft skin cupped in his grip. 

Mali backed away and then hissed in pain. 

His head cleared, and he opened his eyes to see nothing but ceiling. “Did I hurt you? Do you need help?” 

She leaned forward into his range of view, one hand clutching the front of her towel over her breasts. That was a really hot image, too. “No. I just sat back too fast and put weight on my sunburn.” 

“Oh.” He had no idea what to do. He couldn’t sit up while she was leaning over him and rolling to the side seemed awkward as hell. Of course, so did lying flat on his back in front of a woman in nothing but a towel. “Is there something I can do to get out of this situation without Arin wanting to kill me?” 

Mali’s eyes widened, and she froze for a moment, her lips forming a seriously naughty looking O. Then she blinked and laughed. “No. Probably not.” 

It was either laugh with her or pull her down for a kiss. “I’m doomed. Dead.” He paused. “Once I get you safely to Arin, that is. No worries. We’ll get you to her before I report myself for molesting her little sister.” 

Her laughter faded, and her dark brown eyes sparkled with mischief. “Well, if you’re going to get in trouble anyway…” 

She bent then, leaning a hand on his chest, and pressed her lips to his.
