GRIP COVER SALE

Resisting an irresistible force wears you down and turns you out. I know. I’ve been doing it for years.

I may not have a musical gift of my own, but I’ve got a nose for talent and an eye for the extraordinary. And Marlon James – Grip to his fans – is nothing short of extraordinary.

Years ago, we strung together a few magical nights, but I keep those memories in a locked drawer and I’ve thrown away the key. All that’s left is friendship and work.

He’s on the verge of unimaginable fame, all his dreams poised to come true. I manage his career, but I can’t seem to manage my heart.

It’s wild, reckless, disobedient. And it remembers all the things I want to forget.

Excerpt

“Neither of us has been in a serious relationship in years.”

“That doesn’t mean anything.” I stand and slide my feet into the Jimmy Choos. “You haven’t exactly been waiting around, have you?”

“Damn right I haven’t been waiting around.” He doesn’t get up, but his firm hold on my wrist stops me from walking away. “I’m not Rhyson.”

I look down at him, frowning my confusion.

“What do you mean?”

“Remember when Kai put Rhyson in the friend zone?”
Of course I do. For a long time, my sister-in-law Kai denied the attraction between her and Rhyson.

“Yeah, so?”

“When Kai wasn’t checking for Rhys, I assumed he had to be sleeping with other girls.” Grip shrugs. “I mean, he and Kai were just friends. But, nope. He said he only wanted Kai and didn’t sleep with anyone else.”

“Then you’re right.” I tug at my wrist, but he holds on tight. “You’re definitely not Rhyson.”

“It was months, Bristol. She shut him out for months. Not years.”

“I’m not shutting you out.” I release a tired breath. “I’m living my life, and you’re living yours.”

“Right.” He nods and turns his mouth down at the corners. “So, if you won’t be with me, then I’ll fuck whoever the hell I want. If you have a problem with that, you know what to do about it.”

For a moment, our eyes tangle in the dimness. His words sink into my flesh like briars. Every word out of his mouth only proves that I’m right to get out of here. That I’m right not to give in. If I ever gave him a chance and he fucked around on me . . . I’ve seen what that looks like. It looks like a woman as strong as my mother reduced to pathetic, teary drunkenness.

“It’s none of my business.” I shift my eyes away from him and to the glittering city skyline just beyond the rooftop.

“It’s none of your business until you say it is.”

I force myself to look back.

“Don’t hold your breath, Grip.” I say my next words with deliberation. “I mean, it’s not like I’m sitting around saving it, either.”

He pulls me forward, and I press my hand to the hardness of his chest so I don’t fall into him. My knee supports me, pressed against his on the couch.

“Are you poking me?” One strong hand wraps around the back of my thigh, anger marking his expression. “Do you want to know if it bothers me when you fuck other guys?”

I just stare at him unblinkingly. He presses my leg, urging me forward until I’m fully on the couch, fully on him, one knee on either side of his legs, facing him. Straddling him.

“It makes me want to set the world on fire.” His words come softly, but the truth roars in his eyes. “To think of you with them.”

4.5 STARS

Wow – Kennedy Ryan hits it out of the park again with Grip. This is honestly one of the most poetically written books I have ever read. The words flow beautifully from the page painting the picture of the romance of Grip and Bristol.

There were so many ups and downs in the book, but they had me turning the pages quicker just to see what would happen next. Grip and Bristol’s story is poignant and beautiful; certainly a story that is reflective of the times we live in. What a passionate and contemporary love story that should be read and reflected on.

Kennedy Ryan will always be my go-to author, not only because she is a superior writer, but because you can feel her heart in each book that she turns out.

Excerpt:

Sawyer

My throat tightened and a heaviness grew in my chest like my heart didn’t know whether to beat faster or stop beating altogether. “Did you leave me all this to show me the life you could’ve had, but didn’t? Why!?” I pounded the wheel again and then again, and again and again until my vision was blurry and all I could see was the redness of my own heated rage. “You’re a fucking coward! You fucking COWARD!” I screamed to no one, pounding on the wheel until the skin across my knuckles split and blood dripped between my fingers.

Strong hands bit into my biceps, yanking me from the cab. I was spun around by my shoulders and found myself face to face with Finn. “I like it when you swear,” he said, pressing close.

“Finn, get off me! Get off me! Let me go!” I wailed, struggling to free myself from his grip. Kicking out my legs only to connect with the air as he evaded my every move.

A growl tore from his throat. Finn picked me up and walked me to the back of the truck, setting me on the open tailgate. He pushed himself between my legs and hovered over me to keep me from leaping off.

“Let me go,” I demanded, pushing at his hard chest. “I don’t have time for your broodiness right now.”

Finn held my wrists together with one hand. “No, of course you don’t. You’re too busy tearing up pictures and screaming at no one.”

“Let me go,” I repeated.

“No,” he said between clenched teeth.

“Just go! Leave me alone. Leave meeeeeee!” I wailed as I pounded against his stone chest.

“You don’t want to hit me,” he warned, his eyes hardened.

“Then let me go.”

“Why?” He stepped in closer, unaffected by my attempt to fight against him. My inner thighs were touching his outer thighs.

“Because she did!” I screamed, my eyes sprang open to find his cold blue gaze. “She could have run anywhere and taken me with her. Instead she left him but she left me too. She was a coward who couldn’t make the right decision and I love her. I love her…but I hate her. I hate her so much…so…” I was interrupted when Finn’s lips pressed against mine, momentarily rendering me stupid. I pointed my toes toward the sky to avoid my initial instinct which was to wrap my legs around him. It was so consuming that I momentarily forgot to fight him off, but I didn’t need to, he pulled his lips from mine.

“Stop doing that,” I said. I pushed him off but he stayed between my legs, his hands on my bare back just under the hem of his big t-shirt I was wearing. His gaze hardened. I could see the conflict written in his lined forehead and the deep V between his eyes. I had no doubt the conflict had everything to do with me.

And kissing me.

“It’s your fault that I do it,” Finn said, his voice deep and smooth against my chin and then my neck.

“So that’s your plan? Kiss me every time you want to shut me up?” I asked, still feeling every bit of my anger but also feeling something else. Something that sent tingles between my legs and an ache in my core. “Thank you for saving me. Really. Thank you. I appreciate it,” my voice cracked. “But you can just leave me alone now. And please, STOP kissing me.” My words a whisper.

“I’m going to kiss you whenever I want to kiss you,” Finn stated as if I didn’t have a say in the matter.

The early morning sunlight highlighted the beads of sweat trickling from his shoulders down his broad chest and across the valleys of his defined abs. He was standing so close that we were breathing in each other’s air.

“Whenever you want to kiss me?” I laughed. “I don’t understand you. I don’t understand any of this. You’re always mad at me. Why did you save me? Why do you keep kissing me when you’re always mad at me?”

“It’s when I’m pissed off at you that I want to kiss you the most,” Finn said, his voice flowing over my skin like a silky blanket. He slid me closer so I could feel the outline of his rigid erection as if he were proving a point. He lowered his lips to mine and consumed my mouth in a greedy kiss that had me shaking with need and spinning with confusion.

“Do you always kiss everyone you hate?” I asked, yanking my lips from his.

“Does this feel like hate to you?” he growled pushing his hard length between my legs.

Once again, T.M. Frazier’s story telling was fascinating and compelling. Though I must warn you, don’t be expecting King, Bear and Preppy’s stories. Outskirts is a poignant story that will make you treasure what you have and still give you the desire to explore new adventures.  I found myself not only intrigued with Finn and Sawyers story, but all the other characters as well. Of course, the author had to stay true to herself and give us a cliff hanger that leaves you screaming and maybe say a curse word… or three…

It should have
been easier. 
I changed
everything. Became the beauty I didn’t think he’d resist. Lived the
lie I thought he could love. 
I sacrificed my soul
to recover the years that she took from us. Yet, I’m still empty-handed.
But he’s mine.
I’ve earned him. It’s time to collect my prize, and I’ll be
damned if I let anyone come between us this late in the game. 
If only I’d known
my greatest obstacle would be me.

Excerpt
I suppose when Brooks said, “See you later,” he meant
whenever I could come up another pathetic ruse to get his attention. Fuck that.
The path to his heart is proving to be significantly more treacherous than I’d
planned for, so I’ve given up on my own ideas. I picked up a book called Bitches
Get Rings: How to Trap Your Man for Good
, and in a mere day it has cleared
my head—highlighted my priorities. If I want to get Brooks, if I want him to
get on one knee and later say “I do,” I have to make myself valuable. He
needs to know my worth—supply versus demand.
“Good morning,” two suited men say to me in unison as I
reach the top step.
My smile is polite as I step past the heavy doors.
“Morning.”
I weave through the pastel herd, slinking down the aisle,
eyes searching inconspicuously for the back of his head. It’s Easter Sunday.
Brooks told Facebook days ago he’d be here when he declined his co-worker’s
invitation to meet up. Another time, man. Going to church with the fam,
he’d said. So, I’ve been patient. Have read the book twice, and am committed to
following its advice. No messaging and asking what he’s up to, no accidental
butt-dials, no I-thought-you-said-we’d-talk-later-asshole text.
No weakness.
I’m determined now to be a big fucking tease and show him
how much he needs me. So, I stalked him. Followed him. Now, I’m here at
church—a place I haven’t been since my parents’ funeral—wearing my Sunday best,
and prepared to do my best work.

5++ STARS

I would give this book 6 stars, no wait, 7 stars, if I could.  If you have not read the first book – The Evolution of Ivy: Poison – stop reading this review and go read it.  NOW!!!!!  I have never anticipated a book this much.  Being the second book in a series, where the first book ended on a cliffhanger, I am usually eager for the second book.  But this has gone beyond eager and straight into desperate need territory.  I sought the author out of Facebook, there may have been a little stalking and fangirling going on there, don’t judge.  While she chronicled her writing the book, I devoured every morsel she doled out about this book.

The story picks up right where the first book left off and continues on.  In the first book, I viewed Ivy as a crazy, obsessed person with a vendetta. Which she is.  But in the second book, Lauren delves deeper into Ivy and what makes her tick.  I started to see he more as the hurt, wronged person but still a little cray cray.  This is a hard review to write without giving away the story.  I read it in a day, and did not feel guilty about it.

I have been pimping out this book to all my friends and family and to anyone who mentions needing a book to read.  So, I will continue my quest here.  READ.  THIS.  BOOK

 

Author Bio
Lauren Campbell lives in Atlanta, GA, with her family, and
is author of The Evolution of Ivy: Poison.
She was raised in Columbia, SC, with her three sisters who annoy her greatly.

Lauren’s social life is pretty boring, but she loves reading, coffee & hot
tea, and living in her pajamas. She’s a glutton for punishment, and regrettably
signs up for things like Room Mom in her children’s classes, leaving her up all
night doing things like baking dozens of cookies between swear words. Her
favorite food is avocado. If she could, she’d find a way to put it on
everything

I am not a victim.
At least that’s what I wanted to believe. What I wanted the
world to see. Five years of trying to find the girl I hid from the world.
I wouldn’t let the bullies win. I couldn’t.
What was I supposed to do when he walked
into the building? He’d made my high school years a living hell.
But, he doesn’t recognize me.
How do I prove he didn’t break me? Simple, take him home for
a one-night stand.
At least it sounded like a good idea at the time.

I just finished this book and feel the need to put my thoughts down immediately.  I think there was truly every emotion in this book, from happy to sad, nervous to confident.  The story is about a jock and a music ”geek” (I don’t like that word, as I was in band in high school also) meeting up later in life.  The jock was the tormentor of the music “geek” in high school.  After an unexpected encounter, Cole (the jock) sets out to prove to Mari (the music “geek”) that he’s changed but she isn’t so sure. This book deals with bullying issues so incredibly well.   If it weren’t for some super steamy sex scenes, I’d say this book should be required reading for all high schoolers.  Bullying is a tough and sensitive topic that Rebecca deals with beautifully and encouragingly (is that a real word? LOL).

This is the first book I have read by Rebecca Brooke, but it certainly will not be my last.  I hope she writes more about the members of Jaded Ivory.  Would like to learn more about Sawyer.  Hint hint…..

Dear Captor,

You’ve stolen me.

You’ve spilled my blood.

You’ve brought me pain.

But what you’re yet to realize… I’m a fighter.

I’ve been broken before.

I’ve even at one point lost the will to live.

So now you know… this information I gift to you.

I’m ready for you, so do your worst.

Sincerely,

Elenore

Excerpt

 

Prologue
What’s in a name?
Usually, parents name their children with a special kind of love in their hearts. Not
mine though. They didn’t want me, or at least, that’s what they kept telling
me. They only ever wanted to inflict pain. I was nobody until the woman next
door gave me the lovely name Elenore. She cared for me when my own parents
didn’t or wouldn’t.
Every single day I wished to be taken away from what I endured. Anywhere would have been good. I would have sold my soul to the devil himself back then, and I’d
willingly do it now. Give my living essence to breathe, to live on. My entire
childhood was a survival story, and now I have another.
So much blood. Everywhere I look, there are dark pools of solidified blood stuck to the walls, the floor—my entire cell is covered. The girls who came before me are no
more. Their stories are over. It was gruesome, the stuff of your nightmares.
Not me, though—he kept me.
One letter changed my destiny of certain death. It was never in me to give up easily. I’ve always been a fighter. He never saw me coming, and he never knew my strength.
He was not what I expected either.
His
strength.
His
calmness.
Or his
kindness.
He was my
captor . . .

Dear Captor packs a serious punch. So much happens in such a small frame of time. I swear that I held my breath most of the book! It is definitely for psychological thriller  or dark romance lovers.
Short and sweet – this may be my favorite in the genre for the year. I am dying for the second and third books to see where the story goes. Please know that this is not an “easy to read” story. It is dark, twisted, and one helluva ride.

Excerpt

I flinch, glad he can’t see me across two thousand miles. Even working in the kitchens most nights only covers my food, my textbooks. Not the tuition bill. “You’re the one who wanted him to work for you. You’re the one who made him the stake in our last game.”

“And you’re the one who lost,” he says lightly.

“Do you know where he is?”

“Of course. Like you said, he works for me. I would be a careless employer if I let my men go wandering off, gambling and racking up debt and questioning their loyalty to me.”

A shiver runs through me. “Then where is he?”

“He’s a grown-up, Penny. Like you are now. He’s responsible for himself. You only need to worry about your studies. I’m sure Algebraic Topology is taking up plenty of your focus.”

It’s one of my courses this semester. How does he know that?

“Stop playing with me.”

“Why should I?” he says with a soft laugh. “It’s so much fun.”

Frustration stings my eyes, hot and damp. I look up at the wide-open sky, willing myself not to cry. There are a million stars visible here, most of the land owned by Smith College or one of the other campuses. So much land, so much pride. There aren’t buildings climbing on top of other buildings, as if they might sink into the concrete ground if they don’t. There aren’t glass towers reaching to an endless black sky.

“I’m never coming back,” I say abruptly.

His laugh falls silent. “I know.”

“I hate it there. I hate Tanglewood and being powerless. And most of all I hate you.”

The last part is a lie, because I don’t hate him. I’m drawn to him; I’m repelled by him. It’s far too complex a relationship, an equation I’ve never been able to write. It makes me wonder if I’m lying about the other parts—if maybe some twisted part of me misses home.

If some twisted part of me misses being powerless, too.

“Ah, Penny,” he says, sounding infinitely weary. “I hate you too.”

The words shock me, but the hurt inside shocks me more. He shouldn’t be able to wound me. Three years away from home, growing up, growing strong. It should have been enough armor to protect against anything he could say to me. But the arrow sinks deep, proving that I’ll never be able to escape him.

“What did I do to you?” I ask, quiet, in a voice like I’m six years old again. Like I’m speaking to the wild boy I found by the lake, one I lured into my trailer like a wolf.

He answers the same way, a surly teenage boy, fierce and vulnerable at once. “You made me care. You made me want, when I needed to leave. You made me feel, when I would have preferred to die. You brought me back to life.”

And I condemned him to torture. That’s what happened when he sacrificed himself so that I could stay safe. Two children with so few choices. “I’m sorry,” I whisper.

“Don’t worry. I got my revenge, after all.”

My blood runs cold, almost subzero at the words. There’s only one person left in my sad little family. One person he could hurt. “Did you hurt him?”

“By giving him a job when he couldn’t hold one down? By paying him enough that his daughter could escape the city, could go to a fancy college instead of becoming a corner-store whore? Yes, I’ve been horrible to him. A monster.”

“Then why isn’t he answering his phone?”

In the pause I can picture him in a three-piece suit, reclining in one of his ridiculously expensive leather chairs. Some amber liquid in a crystal-cut glass. “Don’t come back,” he says, his voice grim. “You made it out of here. Let that be enough.”

A soft click ends the connection, leaving me bereft.

And more worried than before.

Something is happening in Tanglewood, something bad enough for my father not to call, something horrible enough that even Damon Scott has warned me away. I look up at the infinite stars, but they’re dimmer than before. The whole world muted. It wasn’t a new life that I found so far from home. It was a long dream, and now I’m painfully awake.

DEAR BRIDGET, I WANT YOU by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward Release Day with Review!!! @PenelopeAuthor @ViKeeland @InkSlingerPR

 

 

AVAILABLE NOW

Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.

No questions asked.

Think about it.

Or don’t.

Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

–Simon

5 STARS

I have a confession to make. I have been stingy with my star ratings this year. Without consciously knowing it, I have been looking for my next, great read. I have been finishing books thinking, “meh.” Not with this book! If I could give this more than 5 I would. I am consistently impressed with Vi and Penelope. They write books together that get under your skin. This book had so many unexpected twists that, at one point, my jaw was on the floor!

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Dr. Hogue. From the cover, he looks like a young (read: YOUNG) playboy, that can’t take anything seriously. I wasn’t sure if I’d like him, connect with him, or take him seriously. He was a jokester but in a really fun, charming way. He was all the things I thought about him until he met Bridget. As far as Bridget goes, she was broken and so serious. I mean, how can she not be? Her husband died and left her a single mother. These two together were a very unlikely pair. It worked though. There is a ton of chemistry and they balanced each other out.

Now let’s get to the good stuff. The sex was hot, hot, HOT! Oh my, I think I blushed a little! Simon is just yummy, let’s leave it at that. I’m not sure I anything I write can do this book justice. This book was my next, great read and now I am so sad it’s over. That’s the wonderful thing about books though, they can be reread. I am thinking I will be reading this one over and over!

Misadventures of a City Girl by Meredith Wild and Chelle Bliss Blog Tour! #misadventuresofacitygirl

Check out the Misadventures Series here: http://www.misadventures.com/
Book:  Misadventures of a City Girl
Authors: Meredith Wild & Chelle Bliss
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Fresh off a divorce from a Hollywood hotshot, Madison Atwood needs an escape. With the paparazzi fresh on her heels and her love life splashed on every tabloid, she runs away to a swanky retreat in Northern California. Avalon Springs is the mountainside haven she needs to find herself again.

Luke Dawson lives off the grid, preferring solitude to society. When he finds a beautiful woman soaking in the hot springs on his property, he can’t stop himself from watching her. She captures his attention, but she’s just a city girl—a beautiful distraction disturbing the peace he’s settled here to find.

When Madison discovers Luke’s secluded cabin, he can’t turn her away again. They make no promises. Madison needs to feel wanted again, and Luke misses the touch of a woman. But when mother nature has other plans, they’re forced to spend more than a night of passion together. Can Luke say goodbye to the only woman who’s made him feel anything in years, and can Madison leave behind the man who brought her back to life?

3.5 STARS

If you are a fan of insta-love books, this is definitely the book for you. Luke and Madison meet on a secluded mountain top. Madison is trying to get over her ex-husband and Luke is trying to hide away from civilization. They meet and can’t get out of each other’s’ head so the next time they see each other, they sleep together. It turns out to be so much more than a one night stand and soon they are spending all their time between the sheets. The chemistry is hot and the sex is even hotter. And man, is there a lot of it!

A misadventure of a City Girl is a fun, quick read. It was just what I needed, something light and sexy. This is the first book I’ve read by this author but I plan to check out the next in this series. I have a feeling this series will be fun and entertaining!

DIRTY LITTLE SECRET By Kendall Ryan REVIEW BLITZ @KendallRyan1 @InkSlingerPR

 

The start to a sexy new series from New York Times bestselling author, Kendall Ryan…

 

She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide.

 

The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero.

 

But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess.

How am I expected to resist when the sexual sparks zap between us and set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?

 

The story continues in Dirty Little Promise, releasing October 9th.

4 STARS

Any book that features a librarian has me right away. I don’t know why that always catches my attention. Second, alpha male and the quiet librarian? Well, yes please!

Dirty Little Secret was so yummy. The relationship between Gavin and Emma is delicious. Throw in the fact that Gavin’s brother, Cooper, also has feelings for Emma certainly sweetens the naughty pot. I can not get enough of these three!

Kendall Ryan knows how to write wickedly steamy stories. I am dying to get my hands on book two to see how this story plays out.

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of more than two dozen titles, Kendall Ryan has sold over 2 million books and her books have been translated into several languages in countries around the world. Her books have also appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists more than three dozen times. Ryan has been featured in such publications as USA Today, Newsweek, and InTouch Magazine. She lives in Texas with her husband and two sons.

BLURB:

One girl disappeared. After fifteen years, her cold lifeless body was found on the damp forest floor. Not an inch of her was unmarked by the horrors she endured. Alone, malnourished, abused in horrific ways; this was how she died.

One girl was found walking the streets, covered in dirt and scars. She had no memory of who she was, where she came from, or what happened to her. Even though the marks on her body attested to years of heinous abuse, her strength shone through at every turn.

Revenge and justice were sworn.

Years of searching brought up nothing but dead ends. Detective Niko James was too late to save his childhood friend, but he vows not to let down another.

The clock is ticking and the trail is pitch dark.

4.5 STARS

If you love dark mystery and suspense, Pitch Dark is the book for you. It caught me in its web from the very beginning and held on to me tightly until the holy moly ending. I was engrossed in every twist and turn.

Honestly, I would love to gush about all of the ups and downs, ins and outs of the story but frankly, it would give things away that you will want to experience yourself. Suffice it to say, if you are a fan of books that make you hold your breath, lose time, and make you yell out loud, then Pitch Dark is the book you must read now.
