Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Finding Forever With You [The Malone Brothers 04] by S.L. Sterling!


My best friend Sophie was gorgeous, at times uptight and desperate.

Her biological clock was ticking and after yet another failed relationship she pulled me aside.

"Listen Chase, you know I adore you and you know I need you. Historically, you always come through for me." She swallowed hard while I listened. "It's no secret that I want a baby, the semi old fashioned way."

I nodded not really believing what I was hearing.

"I want you to do it."

"You want my swimmers?"

"Yes, through natural injection."

Sex with my best friend. The best friend I had once upon a time wanted in a bad way.

"Don't worry, I've got this covered," I assured her. She looked relieved and maybe even a little excited.

Seven Days, Six nights, and lots of sex. What more could I want?

Oh right. A way to turn this into forever so I could raise my child too.

Release Day Blitz: Intrigued By Love [Written in the Stars 05] by Sienna Snow!


I knew I was in trouble as soon as I read my horoscope.

Dear Gemini,
A blast from the past will force you to confront your dual nature.
Love is in the air, but only if you are open to it.
Remember, your heart can't heal if you don't examine the wounds.


Only one man fit that description. Jackson Burton. Libra. Breaker of hearts, my ex-boyfriend, and the best man for my sister's wedding.

When he ghosted me, I ran as far away as I could, to this island paradise. Now, I was also trapped here for the wedding.

With him.

With the memories of our life together.

Our chemistry was more than just a memory. It was a live wire.

And he planned to spend the next month reminding me exactly what I was missing.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: The Van Birch Incident [The Incident 01] by Marla Holt!


Van Birch: Pop Star. A-list starlet. Off-limits.

Clay Noble has spent the better part of a decade avoiding his taboo obsession: His stepsister Van. In love with her since the first time he’d heard her sing, even shipping himself off to the army couldn’t stop thoughts of her. Now that he’s lost everything in a tornado, he’s forced to move back in with the only family he has left, Van and her dad. Sleeping down the hall from her is forcing every unwanted impulse back to the surface.

Clay Noble: Gorgeous. Infuriating. Untouchable.

Everything Van touches turns to gold with a side of outrageous. When she accuses her manager of sexual assault, the public thinks it’s just another one of her publicity stunts and the backlash is brutal. Wounded, she dashes home to a tornado-devastated Wellville, Kansas to heal and help rebuild, even though the constant stream of social media doubts and threats won’t let her rest. But there’s another reason for her sleepless nights and fevered dreams. Clay is back, hotter than ever, and his lingering glances and stolen moments have her convinced the feelings she’s fought for so long may not be one sided after all.

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Savage [Rosewood High 03] by Tracy Lorraine!


I had the life most guys only dreamed about: the house, the parties, the girls... until one girl showed up and ruined it all.

It wasn’t really her fault... or mine.

We were caught up in the sins of our parents.

She thinks she’s strong, but she doesn’t have a clue as to what I’m capable of.

My name is SAVAGE after all.

I will break her...

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Jock Blocked [Copper Valley Fireballs 01] by Pippa Grant!


She can't let him score…

Call it superstition, but when a guy bats as hot as Brooks Elliott, you don't mess with what's working. And what's working is him keeping his pants zipped and doing all of his scoring on the field.

So when I hear he's planning to ditch his V-card now that he's been traded to baseball's lovable losers—aka my home team and my reason for living every March through October—I do what any rational, dedicated, obsessed fan would do.

I make a plan to stop him.

But the thing about stopping him is that it requires spending time with him.

Lots. And lots. And lots of time.

And the more time I spend with him, the more I like him. Not as the guy who's going to help save my favorite team and finally bring home a championship ring, but as the guy who's helping me in my quest to bring back the team's old mascot. Who also loves making pancake and bacon sandwiches. And who would do almost anything for his love of the game.

But after all this time of jock-blocking him…do I even have a chance?

And if I do, are we both destined to a life of celibacy in the name of winning?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: TNT [Reed Security 23] by Giulia Lagomarsino!


Tony

After walking into my girlfriend's house and finding her murdered, I'm really struggling to get back to normal. Everyone's looking at me like I'm damaged, but they don't know the truth. And when they find out, they'll never look at me the same again. But a one night stand changes everything. Suddenly, everyone at Reed Security is trying to set me up with this crazy woman that can't cook, shows up at my work, and call me at all hours of the night. I don't want to hurt her, because she's so nice, but how long is a man supposed to go along with a crazy person that thinks there's a relationship where there isn't one?

Molly

After meeting Tony at The Pub one night, I know without a doubt that he's the man for me. He's everything I've been waiting for, and I'm not going to let this opportunity slip through my fingers. I know that he's slightly damaged and dealing with a lot, but with a little encouragement from Tony's teammates, I refuse to let him push me away. I have a whole arsenal of tips and tricks that my momma taught me, and with the help of my best friend, there's no way I'll fail. Now I just have to make Tony see that what we have is forever.

Author bio:

I'm a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, "No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book." I didn't think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn't already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven't been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Hard Truth [Alpha Antihero 04] by Sybil Bartel!


Excerpt!

   The asshole surfer pulled up to Talerco’s a goddamn hour and a half after the surf shop closed.
   Unlike me, he entered a code on the keypad by the gate and the arms swung open. He pulled his truck through and turned it around in the driveway before stopping.
   It was dark as shit, but I still stood in the shadows.
   The passenger door opened and she got out. “Thanks for the rides. And dinner,” she added like she was embarrassed.
   I couldn’t hear the prick’s response, but I wanted to kill him.
   “Yeah, okay. Thanks.” She shut the door and headed toward the house.
   The asshole surfer didn’t even wait to see if she got inside. The security gate was closing behind him before my woman had even made it to the front door.
   Walking like shit hurt, she pulled a key out of her small-as-fuck shorts pocket and aimed for the lock.
   I stepped out of the shadows. “You went to dinner with that asshole?”
   Jumping a foot and shrieking, she dropped the keys and clutched at her chest. “What the hell, Tarquin? Don’t do that!”
   “Do what?” I seethed. “Ask if you went on a fucking date?”

I couldn’t escape the hard sins of my past.

I couldn’t unsee the truths in my mistakes.

Every breath she took was a reminder of the pain I’d caused.

Growing up at the mercy of a madman, I swore I would never give anyone that kind of power over me again. But here I was, on my knees, begging for a life I lost.

Except no amount of forgiveness would bring it back.

Author bio:

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Must Be Wright [The Wrights 03] by Skye Jordan!


Excerpt!

   “Sounds like there might be more to this playboy than you think.”
   Gypsy was already shaking her head when the sound of tires on gravel drifted through the windows. Nerves prickled up her arms, and she fixed Miranda with a look. “Don’t go anywhere. I’m hoping he won’t stay long if you’re here.”
   Gypsy moved into the kitchen to straighten things up, then ran her hands through her hair and smoothed down her blouse.
   “Now I see the problem,” Miranda said. “You like him. You’re staying at arm’s length because you’re really into him.”
   “You couldn’t be more wrong.”
   “I know how you act when you like someone.”
   Jesus. Gypsy put a hand on her hip and faced Miranda. “I was wrong. You need to leave.”
   “Oh no. Absolutely not. I’ve heard his ass is amazing, and I’ve never had the chance to get a really good look.”
   “Miranda…” Gypsy warned.
   Her sister didn’t have time to respond before a knock came at the front door. Wyatt didn’t wait for Gypsy to answer, just walked in.
   Miranda smirked and lifted her brows in a that’s-interesting expression.
   Gypsy took some grocery bags. “What in the heck did you buy? I only had five things on the list.”
   “Five things aren’t enough to make a proper supper—” Wyatt caught sight of Miranda and stopped short. “Oh, hi.”
   “Hi,” Miranda responded with a little too much enthusiasm.
   Wyatt and Belle moved toward the kitchen and settled bags on the counter. Wyatt offered his hand and one of his killer smiles. “I’m Wyatt. I’ve seen you at the bar, yeah? You must be Gypsy’s sister.”
   “Miranda.” She shook his hand. “I help out once in a while.”
   “He couldn’t find anything,” Belle said with a roll of her eyes. “I had to show him where everything was with the grocery store app, and girls kept stopping us for his autograph.” She added a dramatic sigh. “Tourists.”
   Miranda burst out laughing. 
Grinning, Wyatt gestured to Belle with a container of bread crumbs. “This is Belle, my niece, five going on twenty-five.”

The final book of The Wrights series by New York Times bestselling author Skye Jordan, is here!

Gypsy Wright knows how to run a kick ass bar on Nashville’s infamous Broadway. She knows how to raise a son on her own and how to set her priorities. But when her longtime frenemy, country music’s golden boy, Wyatt Jackson, needs her help, Gypsy doesn’t know how to say no. She could never have expected how easily the man she’d kept at arm’s length for so long could slip under her skin or into her heart. Or how quickly he could tear apart the world she’s so carefully built.

Wyatt and Gypsy have been side stepping the heat between them for years. He admires the hell out of her dedication to her son and her success, so when he’s faced with the unexpected duty of raising his five-year-old niece, Gypsy is the first person he goes to for help. When sparks finally ignite, they burn hotter than either of them ever expects, and with the futures of two kids, two demanding careers, and two hearts on the line, those flames risk reducing everything that matters to ashes.

My club and family—by blood and by love—have been my life. My biological family taught me loyalty and love. They instilled me with the morals and showed me the important values in life.

Riding hard and having my brothers’ backs comes from loyalty and love.

My life has never been easy, but I know I would never walk away from my club or my family. We have storms brewing with another motorcycle club. We are waiting for the other boot to drop, and then I meet Emma. Emma's everything I never knew I needed, but also everything I can't see myself letting go.
