SNEAK PEEK: The Naked Truth by Vi Keeland

THE NAKED TRUTH
A Standalone Second Chance Romance Novel
by #1 NY Times Best Selling Author, Vi Keeland
RELEASE DATE: Monday, July 23, 2018

It was just a typical Monday.


Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client.

After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed. 

Or so I thought…

Until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch.

My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance.

And that was the good part of my day.

Because the gorgeous man crouched down and looking at me like he wanted to eat me alive, was none other than my ex, Gray Westbrook.

A man who I’d only just begun to move on from.

A man who my heart despised—yet my body obviously still had other ideas about.

A man who was as charismatic and confident as he was sexy.

Somehow, I managed to make it through my presentation ignoring his intense stare. 

Although it was impossible to ignore all the dirty things he whispered into my ear right after I was done.

But there was no way I was giving him another chance, especially now that he was a client…was there?

“May I get you something to drink while you wait for the rest of your party?” the waiter asked.

I would normally wait to see what the client did and follow his lead on alcohol. But tonight was not the norm.

I rubbed at my stiff neck. “I’ll take a vodka cranberry, please.”

I hoped it would help calm my nerves and release some of the tension in my jaw before I gave myself a full-blown headache. Taking out my phone, I started to scroll through emails to distract myself while waiting for my drink and dinner companion.

My head whipped up at the sound of Gray’s voice behind me. “Sorry I’m late.”

My heart unexpectedly fluttered, and I fought against the feeling of excitement. “Are you really? Because I get the sense you don’t have any manners after the way you interrupted me a million times today.”

He completely ignored my attitude as he took the seat across from me. “Traffic is a bitch getting downtown at this time. Next time we’ll have dinner at my place.”

“There won’t be a next time.”

Gray’s mouth curved into a smug smile as he snagged my gaze. “Sure there will. There’ll be plenty of next times. And eventually you’ll stop pretending you don’t enjoy my company.”

I hated that my body reacted to him. Right from the very start, we’d had a crazy chemistry between us that was difficult to dull.

I sighed. “What are you doing, Gray? Why did you come to my firm?”

He lifted the cloth napkin in front of him and laid it across his lap. “Isn’t that obvious? I need new legal representation.”

“At my firm? And you’d prefer that representation come from an associate instead of my boss’s boss—the head of our securities division? Or even from Pittman, who would gladly hold your hand and provide you whatever legal advice you need from his fifty-plus years of experience?”

“Loyalty is important to me. I want someone I can trust with my business.”

“And you’ve decided that’s me? An associate with five years experience who just got off probation with the Bar Association for violating attorney-client privilege?”

The waiter arrived with my drink. “Here you go, ma’am.” He turned to Gray. “May I get you something to drink? Or would you like to wait until the last of your party joins you this evening?”

“It’s just the two of us. I’ll have a Macallan, neat, please.”

“Coming right up.” The waiter walked around to the other side of the table and started to remove the third place setting.

I put my hand out, stopping him. “We actually do have another party coming, so you can leave that.”

“Very well.” He nodded.

Gray waited until the waiter was out of earshot. “I didn’t invite anyone else to dinner.”

I sipped my drink and offered a saccharine-sweet fake smile. “I did. Figured an important client like you should have more than one attorney to answer his questions.”

Just as I set down my glass, I saw the other man I was waiting to enter the restaurant. He scanned the room, looking for me, so I held up my hand and waved.

“Perfect timing. There’s Oliver now.”

Gray glanced at the man heading toward us and back to me. Instead of being pissed off, the jerk was amused. “That’s cute. You invited a chaperone because you don’t trust yourself with me.”

BOOK REVIEW: 5 STARS
What a pleasant surprise. I absolutely LOVED this book. From the author’s writing style to the characters to the story, everything was amazing! Quite the page-turner!

Thorn and Alexandra’s story isn’t one that I can say “I’ve heard before” and I truly enjoyed that.

Meeting wasn’t planned or expected, but it was surely destined! Both business owners and in the same field, more or less, it was bound to happen. The way it did, however, was perfect.

Thorne wanted some downtime from the craziness that his job added to his life, so he decided to stay at a hotel away from the city. Coincidentally, a hotel (marina and so much more) owned by Alexandra. What started off as an escape, turned into the rest of his life...because you know, fate.

I found myself giggling at some of the remarks in the book. And the things that happened to Thorne? LOL! Sometimes I felt like he couldn’t catch a break!

The secondary characters really added some sass too, let me tell ya! Rosa, especially, had me laughing out loud more times than not.

And Joy — oh my goodness, bless her heart!!!!!! (Said with the full southern meaning behind it, of course, LOL!) That woman could not take a hint! Sweet Lord Jesus, she drove me insane.

Anyway, as the story progressed, I felt anxious knowing that shit would hit the fan soon, and man, the anticipation was killing me! The secrets, oh my!! I needed to know how it would all unfold, so I found myself glued to my kindle, reading...until I was done.

I am happy to report that Stori Summers has gained a fan!!! I truly enjoyed this book so, so, so much!!! Will definitely be checking out the rest of the upcoming books in the series and anything she’s published. FIVE STARS!!


EXCERPT
She moved her hand from my shoulder and slid it down my chest. I thought she was going to push me back. I slid my hand down her back wanting to pull her closer, but I resisted knowing I’d probably already pushed her to her limit.

I could kiss your sweet mouth all night, and I would love every second.

She drew back, her hand still on my chest. Alexandra looked up at me and I could see a mixture of emotion in her eyes. “What is it?”

“So many people come and go. I can’t just—”

“If this thing between us turns to something more, you won’t be able to get rid of me,” I said realizing as the words came spilling out of my mouth that they were much more forthcoming than I’d intended them to be.

I was afraid for a moment that I’d probably just scared her away. Instead, she grabbed the front of my shirt and pulled me close. “Then I guess the only thing to do is give this a real shot,” she said as my arms wrapped around her.

Alexandra’s lean arms crossed at the back of my neck as she pulled me in closer. The soft curve of her breasts pushed against my chest making my body ache to feel her against my skin in a way that I couldn’t ever remember feeling before.

Everywhere her body touched mine came alive.

My tongue delved into her open mouth. I let out a groan as I tasted her deeply, gathering her even closer to me. She couldn’t possibly know how much she was undoing me with her kiss.

She drew on my tongue with her mouth in a sweet suction that made my already hard shaft throb with need.


MEET THE AUTHOR:
I was born in the southern United States in 1975. My family moved around so often that Anywhere, USA became home; as long as it was below the Mason Dixon line. I started college at Northwestern State University of Louisiana, but after three semesters decided I lacked the desire to follow the daily routine and strict schedule required to be a successful college student. I was a wild card...an ADHD poster child.

One day I realized that my life had been scattered, and in that moment I could suddenly, and clearly see the results of a life that held no sense of direction. It was my life, and a life that embarrassed me because of my lack of accomplishments. With different careers and life experiences littering my past, I turned to the one thing I had always been good at...being creative.

I was good at thinking up exciting tales which was a result of always wanting to be more and live a bigger life. I was a dreamer with a large imagination. I decided that it is never too late, and life was too short to not leave something behind for others. For the first time, writing made me feel accomplished. All my scattered thoughts and meandering paths that I had traveled suddenly made sense. Though my experiences didn't lead to any great accomplishments in my younger years, they are now finding their place in the characters of my stories. 

I am very excited to offer bits and pieces of my life experiences, fantasies, and observations to you in the form of words on a page. I am loosely woven through the pages of my books and I look forward to meeting you there.

BOOK REVIEW: Cross by USA Today bestseller, D.A. Roach: YA Fantasy


Congratulations to USA TODAY Bestselling Author D.A. Roach on the release of her latest YA Fantasy novel, CROSS! 

Ray Cross wasn’t a hero; he could die too easily. But some things are worth risking death...

Ray Cross was born with a genetic disorder, resulting in a fragile body; his organs and blood vessels will rupture with any hard impact, so standing up to his best friend's controlling boyfriend could kill him.

Ray's life in Midland, MI gets decimated when his parents reveal they are not his real parents and his real father, a king from a secret land hidden in the far north of Canada, is dying and wishes to meet his son.

With his doctor and newly-met twin, Ray travels to the forgotten village of Yardis, where magic, myth, and corruption are abundant. But the longer Ray stays in the village learning the truth of his past and reconnecting with his father, King Vintras, the more he discovers an evil force threatening the king and his village.

But there’s more than the king and a village tied to Yardis and Ray. He finds friendship and more from a band of brothers who are part witch, dragon, and healer. With new alliances and new abilities, Ray wars with himself on playing it safe or risking it all to save the ones he loves.

Can Ray rise above his fragile disorder to become the hero for once in his life?

REVIEW: 5 STARS
D.A. Roach has the ability and talent to create a world that sucks you in right from the very first page and doesn’t let go until the very last one.

This was a truly FANTASTIC YA novel. Whether you enjoy this genre or haven’t read it yet, this book is a must. 

I absolutely loved Ray’s character (Cross). Going from a “normal” life to discovering he’s really the son of a King AND he’s got a twin brother he never knew about?? Talk about a life-changing afternoon! But even more than his cool life, I loved his easy-going attitude! His quirky comments made me laugh more than once and I also admired how despite his condition, he spoke his mind and did what he believed to be right...always. (I may or may not have squealed when Lauren and him kissed...just saying!)

Yes, there’s a romantic flame burning in the background, but this book is so much more. Once at Yardis, Ray and newly discovered brother, Torin, discover the truth behind who they really were and everything that had happened throughout the years to the village and its people. Curses, powers, barriers, forbidden romances...oh my!!! 

Seriously, GRAB THIS BOOK. If you want to dive into an amazing world that will truly have you glued to the pages, this is the book you want. D.A. Roach truly delivered a must read!!! FIVE STARS!!

BOOK REVIEW: Follow Me Back by A.L. Jackson



Follow Me Back 
The next seductive, unforgettable stand-alone romance in the FIGHT FOR ME series from NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson . . .



The next seductive, unforgettable stand-alone romance in the FIGHT FOR ME series from NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson . . .

Kale Bryant. Arrogant. Gorgeous. Commanding.

This ER doctor is married to his job. His only vice is one-night stands and short-lived flings. He learned a long time ago loving someone isn’t worth the risk.

Harley Hope Masterson. Beautiful. Brave. Sweet.

The owner of a small coffee shop knows what it’s like to struggle. Embroiled in a bitter divorce, she’s threatened with losing everything.

When Kale accepts a new position down the street from Hope’s shop, he begins to question every wall he’s built around his heart.

He wants her in a way he hasn’t wanted anyone.

One touch is fire.
One kiss, and he’s spinning out of control.
But taking her won’t come without consequences.

Hope is in for the fight of her life. One neither of them saw coming.
Now Kale must decide if loving her is worth risking it all.
She will fight with everything she has.

But sometimes even hope needs a hero . . .

REVIEW: 5 STARS
Ever since meeting Kale in the previous installments, I was intrigued. I loved seeing him interact with Rex’s kids and loved how much he loved them. I knew he was always family-oriented despite letting his past get the best of his present.

This book was more emotional than anything. Evan, that sweet, sweet little boy walked right into my heart. I was so scared for him the entire time and my heart was constantly breaking!

Hope was an AMAZING mother. So, so, SO strong!!!! She and Evan were in many ways what Kale was terrified of, but exactly what he needed to face in order to start living again. Fate is an amazing thing...

This book—gosh, THIS BOOK. Get it. Experience it. Fall in love with not only a set of phenomenal character but an epic story.

FIVE STARS.

BOOK REVIEW: Don't Be Afraid by CA Harms, Contemporary Romance

DON'T BE AFRAID by CA Harms
A Second Chance Contemporary Romance


Have you ever looked at someone and just knew,
knew that they were put in your life for a reason?
The one person that would be not only your best friend,
but would be your absolute everything?

That’s how I felt the first time I saw him.

That one day when a few little words changed our entire lives forever…

Don’t be Afraid, he said.

Life can change so quickly.

One moment you can be smiling and feeling as if you're walking on clouds and the next, everything you love, everything you treasure crumbles at your feet.

I told him to fight, I told him I needed him.
We needed him.
But there are just some fights that can't be won…

He was my angel then, and he’s still my angel now.
In a way, I believe he’s still looking out for us, giving us a future.
Sometimes it’s as if I can still feel his presence,
guiding us and keeping us safe.

So, I won’t be Afraid.
I'll live. I’ll fight.
It’s what he would have wanted.
I’ll do it for him…

REVIEW: *6* STARS!!!!
OH. MY. GOSH. This book has ruined me in the best way possible. 

The rumors were true. You NEED TISSUES for this one. Tons and tons of tissues. I cried practically the whole time! For sure I cried the entire first 70% of this book consecutively. Then, even as I felt my shattered heart healing, I still cried!

Patrick. God, what a MAN. Seriously. I still feel like crying just thinking of him!!! He was PERFECT. Everything he did for Sawyer and his daughter... From housework to the letters!!!! OMG. *sigh* My heart...... THE FEELS, you guys!! THE FEELS.

Then, we also had Gage, Patrick’s best friend. So understanding, patient, kind, and LOVING. Now, of course, I NEED a romantic HEA in my books so I was super happy to see Gage and Sawyer find comfort in each other. C A Harms developed this slow burn flawlessly. They had so much to work through and it all went at the perfect pace. The guilt they felt was understandable and seeing them work through it, seeing them open up that side of them that was in many ways broken was beautiful.

Guys, seriously, READ THIS BOOK.

An emotional, heart-shattering book that will have you smiling and sighing with content by the time you’re done reading.

A top 2018 Favorite.
SIX STARS!!


EXCERPT:
I sat in the darkness with my legs curled up in the chair, my body shielded by the large blanket I had wrapped around me. I’d thought of going to bed a long time ago, but instead, I was listening to the Pat’s breathing patterns.

This was his third night sleeping in the hospital bed in the center of our living room, and though he hated it, I knew it was easier for him to sleep on than our old worn out couch.

Each night after he’d fallen asleep, I tried to go to bed, but I eventually found myself back in the living room, watching him and listening to his breathing. I guess I needed it for my piece of mind. Though his breaths were weak and labored, I still needed to be able to hear them. I think in some weird way it was comforting.

When he was asleep he wasn’t angry or fighting to push people away. He was just peaceful. I needed to see him this way, I guess, because the hard times were beginning to drown out those happy memories and each day I found it more and more difficult to hold myself together.

The room was dark, save for the illumination from the light above the sink in the kitchen. The gentle hum of the refrigerator was the only other sound. I’m not sure at what point I allowed myself to fall asleep, but I was jolted awake by the sound of his raspy voice filtering through the darkness.

“Sawyer.”

I sat up straight and the cover slipped from my shoulders as I leaned forward, looking him over from head to toe. My heart raced as the thought of being here alone with him when something catastrophic happened. The moment my eyes reached his, I found him staring back at me.

“Is everything okay?” He shook his head, and my heart seized in my chest. I stood and walked toward his bed, my hands shaking as I did my best to stay in control of my fears. “What hurts?”

He lifted his hand and rested it over his heart.

I stared at him in confusion.

“I’m sorry.” I could sense whatever it was on his mind was hard for him to face as his eyes shimmered with unshed tears. “Please don’t hate me.”

Suddenly it was hard to breathe.

“Why would I hate you?” I took his hand and offered a gentle squeeze. “I could never hate you, Patrick.”

“I’ve been such an ass and knowing this, but unable to control it breaks me.”

“You’re going through so much,” I said as I sat on the edge of his bed.

“So are you.”

I closed my eyes for only a moment when he ran his fingers through my hair that hung loose over my shoulders. “I’ve allowed the fear to consume me and gave it the power to make me forget what I have. I’m just scared.”

I opened my eyes, and his cheeks were wet from the tears he tried to control.

“I’m so scared of everything I’m gonna miss. I’m scared of not being here to protect you an Abigail.” He took in a shuddering breath. “I don’t want you to be alone, Sawyer.”


MEET THE AUTHOR:
C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn't always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.

BOOK REVIEW: Indie and the Brother's Best Friend by R. Linda, NA Romance

INDIE AND THE BROTHER'S BEST FRIEND
by R. Linda
Series: Scandalous Series #2
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Genre: NA Romance

Being in love with someone who doesn’t love you back sucks. 

Being in love with your brother’s best friend sucks even more, because you know it can never happen. How tragic is that?

I’ve been in love with Lincoln Andrews since we were kids and he stuck up for me against my brother and played tea parties with me in the treehouse. I’ve also avoided him for the past year because he broke my heart…more than once.

Now we’ve been thrown together at a tropical resort to celebrate my parents’ second wedding, and things are intense and getting worse, no thanks to an insane plan my friends cooked up to get me my dream man.

No one else even comes close to what Linc means to me. He’s always there for me, but is it because he cares for me too—or only because I’m his best friend’s little sister?

It’s time I find out once and for all…but what if our crazy plan blows up in my face and ruins everything?

REVIEW: 5 STARS
Ever since meeting Indie in book 1, Bailey and the Bad Boy, and seeing how madly in love she was with her brother's best friend, I wanted to know more about her and Lincoln. I wanted to read about their "impossible" situation and see if they'd figure a way around their predicament.

The moment I got my hands on this book, I was a goner!! This story had my full attention and there wasn't a thing that would make me stop reading...well, aside from the fact that I had to sleep, that is.

Indie had been in love with Lincoln all her life. He was always there alongside her brother, making sure Indie was always safe and taken care of. He made sure any and all boys stayed away from her too. Indie just thought he was protective of her because he saw her as a little sister. She hoped to be wrong but Lincoln never showed her otherwise. In fact, whenever they'd have a moment, he'd make sure to push her away rather quickly. She never knew which way was up or down with him.

So she left.

A few years later, she's forced to face the music. Her parents are renewing their wedding vows and they're both in the wedding. Now, of course, an already stressful situation was made even more stressful (but comically so) for Indie because her and Bailey's best friend, Jack, decided to be her pretend boyfriend. Out of the blue. Now, mind you, Jack is gay, so in reality, there was NOTHING there between them, but it was fun seeing him push Linc's buttons. Jack knew that would light a fire under his butt and get him to admit to Indie, and himself, how he really felt.

The chemical attraction and sexual tension between Indie and Linc SIZZLED. Holy cow, did it ever. I was READY for them to finally be together! In more ways than one, if you know what I mean, LOL!

Anyway, this book was seriously REALLY GOOD and one I recommend you grab! I love Lincoln....and Jack LOL!! It was amazing seeing Ryder and Bailey (#RyderFreakingJones!!) and I cannot wait for Harper and Nate's book! Eek!! FIVE STARS!


EXCERPT:
I smiled at her. It wasn’t a friendly smile. It was sinister. Her eyes widened, and she moved back on the rock, knowing I was coming for her.

“You better lose that dress real quick, Princess. I’d hate for it to get wrecked.” I crept closer. Panic marred her features. She knew all too well that I meant what I said.

“You wouldn’t.” She held her hands out to stop me.

“Come on, you know me better than that. You’re getting in this water. It’s just up to you whether your pretty dress is coming in with you.” I turned my back to her. “You have until the count of three. If you’re not in the water by then, I’m turning around regardless of whether you’re still dressed or not.”

“Linc, I’m not skinny-dipping with you.” Her voice quivered a touch with nerves.

I chuckled. “No one said anything about skinny-dipping, but please don’t let me stop you if you feel inclined to swim naked.” I reached for the waistband of my boxers, and intending to mess with her a little more, I removed them completely. “I might just join you.” I threw my underwear over my shoulder and onto the rock.

I was surely going to hell for this.

“Linc! Oh, my god!” I looked over my shoulder at her to find her face buried in her hands.

“To the count of three, Indie,” I warned one last time.

She huffed.

What was I doing? She was Nate’s sister.

“One.”

And she had Jack-ass for a boyfriend.

“Two.”

She was completely off limits.

“Three.”

It was silent. I turned to find her standing on the rock, twisting her hands nervously in front of her. Her dress…at her feet.

I gulped.

Lace. White lace. Matching.

Hell.

I was going to hell.

And I didn’t care. I didn’t care that she was Nate’s sister. I didn’t care that she had a boyfriend. I didn’t care that she was entirely off limits. She was mine. Always had been. And one way or another, I wasn’t leaving this island without getting what I wanted.
