(G-Man Series #3)

There's a new Alpha in town… and he's a Brit!

Darcy Nicole Sheridan, is 22 years-old, beautiful, single, spirited, sexy and - spoiled. She knows that about herself. Raised by wealthy (and doting) parents as an only child, Darcy pretty much coasts through life until her heart was inexplicably broken by her boyfriend, Darin.

To ease the pain, Darcy flies to Belize over the holidays fully intending to wallow in self-pity and distance herself from her ex. Her pity party is short-lived however, after observing a very handsome, very intriguing man on the beach. Darcy becomes the focus of the smokin' hot, wealthy and somewhat mysterious 'E.J.'

Soon she finds herself entangled with an alpha like no other… Her world is rocked by a series of events that will forever change the course of her life, showing her what love is all about; and forcing her to come to terms with hidden sexual pleasures only one man could fulfill…

This book is intended for mature audiences.

“He leaned in, his lips brushing my ear. “Baby,” he said in a rough whisper, "I want to fuck you in the worst way possible.  What I don't want is to be some revenge fuck of yours in order to get back at your cheating boyfriend who you'll most likely get back with before you land in D.C. I'm not that guy, babe. When I fuck you there will be no doubt in your mind as to who you're with and why you're with me, understand?”

“I’ve a tendency to try and lead when slow-dancing,” I warned him. His lips twitched, and amusement glimmered darkly in his eyes.
“You have no worries there; I don’t intend to allow that,” he responded softly. “You’ll learn to follow, I promise.”

“This was a man who could shatter me at will. I mean, look what he'd done with my resolve to be professional. Where'd that go? He'd splintered it the moment he started telling me those things at the restaurant. I could already feel the slow fractures begin to confetti my thoughts.”

“Is that what you really think? Do you truly believe that you've been fucking a dangerous sociopath?"
"No," I stated firmly. "I think I've been fucking someone who doesn't know who or what he is, much less what he wants. I think he's someone that has some baggage he hasn't dealt with which is a shame, because he's almost perfect otherwise”

“He pushed a little voice into his whisper, giving it an almost mellifluous, lyrical sound, “I’m going to fuck you like I would Bianca. I’m going to speak to you like you are Bianca. And I’m going to use you like I would Bianca.”
I felt his lips on the spot right below my ear. “Are you frightened?”

“Still want to scream, love?” He asked as I felt that finger lazily masturbate me.
“Yes,” I let out ragged breath, shooting him a hard glare.
“But you’re so wet, Darcy.” He told me, his eyes on where his hand was, watching my hips subtly lift and fall to his momentum. Easton looked up at me, giving a pirate’s grin, “Or am I to call you Bianca this evening?”

“I raised my chin, defiantly. “Do it.” I challenged him.
He looked back at me, in wonder... an easy smile resting on his lips. Something flashed in his eyes as he continued studying me, and before he was aware of it, I saw a vague and saddened disappointment reflect through his eyelashes.”

“Did you fuck me because I looked like her?" I asked quietly.
"Yes," he whispered, not taking his eyes from mine.
"Are you holding me now because I look like her?" I felt the adrenaline catch fire in my veins, afraid of his answer but needing to know the truth.

“You're being an ass," I snapped, hoping to get his ire up, along with anything else on him that cared to rise to the occasion.
"I am an ass," he spat, "You should've figured that out a long time ago. I don't want to be an ass - not with you at any rate. You didn't deserve the things I did to you last night.”


I awoke with a start; my wrists were painfully sore. Then I remembered. I felt a smile play on my lips as my fingers massaged the tender flesh on one wrist, soothing the skin that had been chaffed by the handcuffs My ankles had been bound together tightly with leather straps which in my mind had been worse but I'd understood the necessity of it. Easton had been about inflicting pain last night, not pleasure. Well that's not altogether true; the pain had brought me pleasure not that he'd intended it to but it had nonetheless.

I snuggled back against him, feeling his arms tighten protectively around me. He was stirring and I knew he hadn't slept well last night. He'd tossed and turned, repositioning himself a half dozen times around me asking me if I was okay. I knew he'd been apprehensive about how I'd react to my punishment; concerned that he'd crossed the line with me or maybe with himself, but I'd leapt across that line, hands and feet bound tightly together into his world of discipline and respect and I understood the rules now; I comprehended this man.

I rolled over to face him, looking up into his smoldering gray eyes that were studying me intently. Was he concerned I'd flee from his bed? Not a chance. I was still naked beneath his sheets. I could still feel his cum dripping from me. My God! We'd fucked most of the night - after the punishment had been dispensed with that is. I'd never been with a man that had a sexual appetite comparable to Easton's. It was as if he'd been on a mission to bury himself in me, and despite my reddened behind and sore wrists and ankles, I hadn't wanted him to stop.

He lowered his mouth to mine, kissing my lips softly.

"Morning, love," he murmured, his voice rough with early morning. "Are you alright?"

"I'm fine, Easton. Stop asking me that," I whispered against his lips. "I want more."

"Don't say that," he snarled, immediately disengaging himself from me and sitting up. He raked his hands through his fuck-tousled hair.

I frowned, perching myself up on one arm, my fingers reaching out to touch his sinewy muscled back.  "What is it?" I asked, frowning.

He stood up, distancing himself from me, not bothering to hide his agitation. "For Chrissake you can't possibly think what happened last night can ever happen again. I won't let it," he snapped. "It's not what I want with you."

"Okay, I'm totally not following you here; I kind of thought it rocked."

He took two steps towards me, his eyes flashing. "That speaks of your needs, not of mine; at least not anymore - not with you."

"I was pissed. Damn pissed! I'd been quite the trooper and was fucking proud of it, Now he was telling me what? That I sucked at being punished?

"You're being an ass," I snapped, hoping to get his ire up, along with anything else on him that cared to rise to the occasion.

"I am an ass," he spat, "You should've figured that out a long time ago. I don't want to be an ass - not with you at any rate. You didn't deserve the things I did to you last night."

"Which things?" I asked.
He was silent.

The flogging?" I taunted. "The thin leather straps with the metal tips you flailed across my back and butt. Your aim was perfect, by the way."

I saw his quick intake of breath as my words hit home. He turned towards the bathroom to put more distance between us.

"Or the bondage?" I persisted, cockily, trying to draw him back. He stopped and turned towards me, his face masked with shame. "The titanium steel handcuffs attached to my wrists, and the leather binds for my ankles making me unable to move while you fucked me raw."

"Any of it," he replied.

"Who deserved it, Easton?"

"All of them - apart from you. All of the whores I've been with; the ones I've punished in that way. Do you need names?"

"Only one," I replied, watching him with interest.

"Bianca," he snarled, his eyes flashing with fury. "It’s how I wanted to fuck Bianca, the traitorous bitch. It's how I thought I wanted to fuck you until I realized . . ." he broke off mid-sentence, agitation once again settling in as he dealt with his own confusion.

"Realized what?"

"Nothing," he muttered, going into the bathroom and slamming the door behind him, leaving me to guess how he might've finished that sentence.

Cover Reveal: "Drew + Fable Forever" by Monica Murphy








(Drew + Fable #3.5)

Monica Murphy returns with her most beloved characters, Drew and Fable, in this eBook original short story that brings her bestselling New Adult series full circle. 

Fantasy. How I ended up with NFL player Drew Callahan, the guy every woman wants, is beyond my wildest dreams. All I know is that once he chose me as his one and only, I sure wasn’t looking back. I had past wounds and he showed patience and concern—even accepting responsibility for my messed-up kid brother. Now, yet again, he's found a way to blow my mind: an exotic wedding and honeymoon miles and miles away from home. What else could a girl ever ask for? Reality. Except now the honeymoon’s over. Drew's football schedule takes him on the road constantly, while I need to stay put and look after my brother until he finishes high school—because God knows our sorry excuse for a mother won’t. I know Drew loves me with all his heart, and I’ll always be over the moon about him. This just isn’t how I imagined life as newlyweds . . . dealing with the distance, missing him constantly. But we’ve gone through hard times before. We can get through this, too, right? We’re Drew and Fable, together forever. At least I hope so. . . . 

January 14, 2014

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

 “We should check out Ocean Avenue tomorrow,” Drew whispers close to my ear, amusement tingeing his deep voice. “What? Are you serious?” Even though I’ve come to terms with being here, it doesn’t mean I want to linger and make it a serious vacation. Besides, Drew needs to get back home so he can resume practice. “Well yeah, remember the spot where we kissed?” His eyes are warm as they search my face, filled with so much love I feel my heart swell. “Yes,” I whisper achingly. “Of course I remember.” “I want to go back there.” He tucks a strand of hair behind my ear, his index finger lingering on my skin. “I want to kiss you again in that little alley and remember how wet we were from the rain. How nervous I was. I was scared you might reject me.” I’d felt the same way. We’d dealt with much of the same feelings and fears and hadn’t even known it. “I want to take you to that store where you got the dress that just about killed me and buy you whatever you want,” he continues, his fingers drifting across my jaw. My eyes flutter closed as memories rush back at me. “I want to sit outside the dressing room and have you come out to show me every single thing you’re trying on.” That he remembers all the little details sends a thrill of pleasure spiraling to the very depths of my soul. “And then I want to wander off for a bit and let you do whatever you want, secretly hoping that you’ll send me a text that says marshmallow. Though if you don’t that’s okay because I’ll send you one instead.” He offers up a crooked smile and the sight of it cracks my heart wide open, overflowing with so much pure love for him I want to cry. “Because we made a deal. Whenever we see or hear that word, the other comes running. I’ll always be the one to rescue you, Fable. You never have to worry about that.”

Blog Tour Stop + Giveaway! "The Christmas Wish" by Katy Regnery

(Heart of Montana #1.5)

Waitress Tess Branson has earned a bad reputation, and the nickname "Fast Tessie," as result of her poor judgment where men are concerned. Tess learned from a young age that men – of all ages – were interested in one thing from her and one thing only. But all Tess ever really wanted was to connect with someone special – to mean something to someone. Lucas Flynn, the short order cook at the restaurant where Tess works, has just been released on parole. He’s trying to get his life back on track, but can’t help noticing the pretty waitress who treats him kindly, despite his past. At Lucas’s urging, Tess makes a wish on a star, but they’ll have to rely on the magic of Christmas to help it come true.

The Christmas Wish is a novella and can be read as a standalone.

5 Stars! 

A quick and short, yet truly romantic and beautiful story. “The Christmas Wish” is yet another perfect read for the Holidays by Katy Regnery!

“You can put lipstick on a pig,” she whispered. “But it’s still a pig.”

Tess is a waitress we briefly met in “By Proxy” (Heart of Montana, book one). She had a horrible reputation and because of her troubled past, she didn’t think she was worthy of being loved. People treated her badly and judged her as if they knew her. But, boy were they all wrong. Tess was the nicest and sweetest person in that little town in Montana. Unfortunately for her, where relationships and love were concerned, all she ever experienced and knew, was being used and then tossed aside by men. Until Lucas Flynn.

Lucas, the short order cook at the diner where Tess worked, was protective -- quite the alpha, sweet, pure at heart, and just as broken as Tess was. He had been in jail for, what in my opinion, was an honorable act. I won’t say what he did because I don’t want to spoil any of the details for you, but just know that he wasn’t a “criminal” or just another “ex-con”. Right off the bat, I had a soft spot for him. The way he looked after and defended Tess, really made me swoon and smile while reading.

“I love you. I’m not going anywhere unless you’re going with me, because you’re my destination. Wherever you are, I’m home.” 

Tess and Lucas -- two broken souls that healed each other. They were each other’s missing piece. The way “The Christmas Wish” was written, made me feel as if I had been reading about these characters for a while now… like I already knew them. I knew in my heart that their feelings towards each other were deep, real, and genuine. I desperately wanted them to get the happy ending they so much deserved. My heart yearned for it. 

“Her ridiculous wish – the wish he’d told her to make on a star – had suddenly, unbelievably, come true.”

Katy Regnery managed to evoke certain emotions out of me under 50 pages that sometimes full length novels don’t. It’s as simple as that. I was captivated from the very beginning, felt a connection with the characters and storyline, and at the end, I couldn’t be happier with the ending. Yep. It’s that well written. This author can really write beautiful romance! Lucas and Tess’ story is one that will stay with me for time to come. 
Katy Regnery, I’m a fan!

“Wishes do come true at Christmastime.”

Blog Tour Stop + Giveaway! "Welcome to Sugartown" by Carmen Jenner

Ana Belle never wanted anything more than to hang up her apron, jump on her Vespa and ride off into the sunset, leaving Sugartown in the dust.

Elijah Cade never wanted anything more than a hot meal, a side of hot arse and a soft place to lay his head at night where he could forget about his past.

But you know what they say about wanting: you always want what you can’t have.

Nineteen year-old virgin Ana is about to discover that’s not quite true because a six foot three, hotter than hell, tattooed, Aussie sex god just rode into town. He’s had a taste of her pie and he wants more– no really, Ana bakes pies for a living, get your mind out of the gutter.

She’d be willing to hand over everything tied up in a big red bow, there’s just one problem; Elijah has secrets dirtier than last week’s underwear. Secrets that won’t just break Ana’s heart, but put her life at risk, too. When those secrets come to light, their relationship is pushed to breaking point.

Add to that a psychotic nympho best friend, an overbearing father, a cuter than humanly possible kid brother, a wanton womanizing cousin, the ex from hell and more pies than you could poke a ... err ... stick ... at.

And you thought small towns were boring.

4.5 Stars!

Where to start….? Ok. First of all, browsing through Facebook one night, I happened upon a teaser for this book. I asked my blogging partner in crime if she had seen/heard of it or gotten a review request for it. Nope. Oh my….doing something I have never done, I decided what the heck, and messaged the author directly letting her know that I needed her book. I had to read this! The teaser captured my interest and the synopsis piqued my curiosity. I needed to read this book….and the ever sweet Carmen sent me the link to sign up for the tour and her book, and I will just say this; I am so very thankful I went after it. This book was a wonderful, heartfelt emotional read.

The synopsis alone will leave you wanting more….it sure did for me. I opened it up after everyone went to bed, thinking I could start this little read quietly and enjoy some downtime….well, darnit! I laughed so hard (quietly to myself, of course!) the first few chapters, I was shaking the bed! My poor husband was trying to get some sleep, and here I am just giggling and waking him up every few minutes. I ended up telling him that I better put the book down because I was going to keep laughing… after a few more giggles, I went to sleep.  If a book made me smile and giggle that much in the very beginning, I knew I was in for a treat!

You see, Holly, Ana’s best friend who has NO filter on her mouth whatsoever, caused the majority of my giggles in the beginning.  The inner dialogue of the characters was a treat too….it just all around made me giggle, but it also had its very sexy, very HOT side to it too. It was a well-rounded book that made you enjoy reading it.

Ana and Elijah have a very comical start to their relationship (again, thanks to Holly), but Elijah wants to turn it serious and is very determined to do so. He is very sexy, very swoony, and oh-so-hot. He tries to be a good boy, he visits Ana every day at the pie shop, chats her up and goes back to work. They end up out at a pool hall one night, and the comments turn rather hot very quickly.

“When I do finally get you naked beneath me—and trust me, it’s not a question of if, but when—I’m going to make sure you haven’t so much as looked at a drink. I want you to remember everything I do with my hands and my lips and my tongue.” ~Elijah

This just begins the very sexy and HOT buildup of sexual tension and red-hot, panty melting make-out sessions. Elijah has a way with his hands AND his mouth…..mmm mmm good!

I stare at the ceiling and wonder what the hell I’ve done, and what I’m going to do now. It doesn’t matter which way I look at it: when it comes to Ana Belle, I’m completely fucking screwed. ~Elijah

Ana is a very sassy girl, but has a bad reputation around town because of a very jealous ex. He is a jerk….and he will get his, I promise you that. Remember, what comes around goes around…right? Well, we get to see the other side of sexy swoony Elijah….a very protective and serious side of him as well.  He makes sure that Ana is very protected from the ex and makes sure he does everything he can to keep her safe, even taunting the ex at the pool hall with a very sexy make out session (*melts*)…..that is until his past catches up with them. A very dangerous past.

After the run-in with his past, there is a HUGE dividing wedge between Ana and Elijah that hurts them both….emotionally, mentally and physically. Ana pulls away, thinking she can’t handle being around him anymore because of the hurt he caused her and the pain she is now going through. They end up splitting up and Ana gets into some trouble of her own…..very bad, mentally scarring trouble. This touches on a heavy subject and one that made me cringe. It was emotionally challenging to read this part of the story and I love that it was told with heart and emotion that we got to feel as well. Elijah goes to defend her….and I have more respect for him after doing what he did than ever before. He pays the price for his little “action”, but I love what he did….vigilante justice isn’t always the right thing, but I agree with this one.

After MONTHS of denying their still very strong and heavy attraction for each other, one very hot and very erotic scene of Elijah being caught in a ‘compromising’ situation made them both realize there is still something there….but Ana still fought it as hard as she could. Oh man….I think I read this part with a blush and flushed face and biting my finger!! It was a panty-melter!!! I promise….oh man, it was SOO hot!!!  A very small teaser, because if I tell you more, you will miss the emotion and fragile love that surrounds it. But their actions surrounding this interaction say a lot about their feelings….

“You drive me fucking crazy, you know that?”
“The feeling’s mutual, Cade.”

Oh my gosh….re-reading this part is making me squirm!! I think it was the HOTTEST part in the book!!!!

But with Ana still fighting the truth that her heart and her head are warring about, Elijah is determined to make her see it….and his patience works out for his benefit, even though she is still trying to fight it.

“Bullshit! The only reason we aren’t together right now is because you’re too fucking stubborn to admit how you feel, because it might mean being hurt again. Well guess what, baby girl, life is all about hurt. From the day we’re born to the day we die, we fucking hurt and we cry and we pick ourselves up and, if we’re really lucky, we have people to help us pick up the fucking pieces.” ~Elijah

Elijah is full of deep wisdom….he has learned and lived through it. I really enjoyed this story and feel that it was well written and made you feel the emotions from the characters.

I give this story 4.5 emotionally tormented stars. --> I’m seeing this quite a bit lately. Thank you, Carmen, for trusting me with your ‘book baby’!

He Feels Trilogy!!

How He Really Feels (He Feels Trilogy #1)

(He Feels Trilogy, Book 1)

Julianne Becker is desperately in love with her boss, Nick Matthews. She has daydreamed about him since the day she first met him a year earlier, but she is firmly stuck in the friend-zone until New Year’s Eve, when the game completely changes and she finds out how Nick really feels about her. They embark on a sexy affair that’s everything Julianne ever dreamed of... except she can’t tell anyone about it. What will happen if anyone finds out about their secret relationship? And how will her lifelong best friend, Travis Miller, react when Julianne begins a relationship with someone who isn’t him? 

How He Really Feels is a novel that explores relationships and love between coworkers and friends. It contains some adult situations and is intended for mature readers

4.5 Stars

"Everything in my life was insignificant until I met you, and now you are all that matters."

Julianne Becker was in love. The only problem was, she was in love with hernew boss, Nick Matthews. She basically swooned over him for a whole year before anything finally happened. I completely understood why she never gave up though. I mean this guy was 100% swoon worthy! But you see, there's a reason it took a year for things to heat up.

When Nick first got to the company, in the contract he signed, there was a policy that forbid him from dating anyone from his department. But, unable to deny his feelings any longer, on New Year's Eve he decided to give it a go with Julianne. Quickly there after, they began what they called a 'secret relationship'. 

"You are so incredibly beautiful"

"Julianne, it's only been you since the day I met you."

Since both their jobs were at risk, no one could know - not even Julianne's girlfriends from work. The only person, aside from family, that knew about Nick was Travis - Julianne's ex-boyfriend and now best friend.  BUT, there was something Julianne did NOT know...

"... I see the way he looks at you, Julianne. It's the same way I look at you." -Nick 

This little situation caused me to feel angry with Julianne and heartbroken for Travis. The way she handled things was just beyond aggravating. About half way through the book, something happens (total WTF moment) which leads Julianne to do somethingthat completely pissed me off.  Noooo, there's no cheating or anything, but still, I think she could've handled things differently. 

Without giving anything away, I'll just say that Julianne and Nick's relationship gets tested a lot. Just when things were going smoothly, BAM, something happened. Quite the ups and downs. But don't worry, everything comes together towards the end and I have to say, I loved the ending!! I finished reading with a smile across my face. 

"How He Really Feels" is a sweet and sexy read you should definitely check out. 
There's another book coming out - "What He Really Feels" and it's Travis' journey to his HEA, which I really hope he gets.

"... I can't wait to begin forever with you."

What He Really Feels (He Feels Trilogy #2)

(He Really Feels Trilogy, Book 2)

He told her How He Really Feels and had his heart broken. Now Travis Miller is trying to move on from the greatest heartbreak of his life by getting out of town. But two nights before his big move to California, Travis meets a mystery woman who grabs hold of his broken heart and gives him hope that he can piece it back together. Will Travis ever figure out What He Really Feels, or will he be stuck on his first love forever? Will he find his happily ever after? 

What He Really Feels contains some adult situations and is intended for mature readers

5 Stars 

We met Travis as "Julianne's best friend" in book one, How He Really Feels. Throughout that first book, I flat out fell in love with Travis, and during this book- his book, I was simply blown away. He's one swoon worthy guy! Lisa Suzanne did an amazing job while writing a male POV. I completely connected with him.

It's not 100% necessary to read book one for you to be able to read What He Really Feels, which is the second book in the trilogy. I do however, recommend that you do so. It will allow you to have a better grasp and full understanding of "the situation" at hand, where these characters are concerned. 

"Sometimes it's just best to start over."

This book starts off in a scene we got in How He Really Feels.  That one particular scene where Julianne pissed me off. UGH! We first read it through Jules' POV and now we got the entire story with Travis' side. Let me just say, poor Travis! I felt so bad for him. *sigh* Luckily for Travis, fate was on his side.
Before moving to San Diego, he goes out with his friends to a bar where he happens to meet a mystery woman....Gorgeous.  Both of them thinking it would be just a one night stand, they decide to well... you know *wink* Just a one night thing, no strings attached, right? HA! Boy, how wrong were they!

"She's just... She's gorgeous. She's spectacular. She's everything I didn't even know I was looking for and everything I never knew I needed."

Travis, or better yet, "Tiger" as Gorgeous called him, thought he'd never see this woman again. They never exchanged real names or phone numbers, for that matter. So imagine their surprise when they bumped into each other (quite literally) in San Diego!!! Yep. SURPRISE!! Fate had stepped in, once again.

Talk about an anxiety ridden book!!! So many factors kept making things difficult for Travis and Gorgeous, also known as Lindsay, to just be happy and together!!! One of those factors being the one and only, Julianne. Which brings me to my next point. Lisa Suzanne did an incredible job in keeping me very interested in the general story line... not just in Travis' story, but in the whole thing. Like, what will happen with Nick and Julianne? Hell, I'm even curious about Spencer - whom you'll meet in this book.

I was BEYOND thrilled to see Travis FINALLY get the girl!!!  Lord knows the poor guy has suffered enough!! But still, I just know there's a lot more to these characters, so I'm VERY curious about the third book.  EEEKKKK!!!

Go buy this book!!!!!!

Oh, and that alphabet game??? SO.FREAKING.CUTE! That is all, carry on :)

"My heart was hopelessly entwined with hers, and now that she was in my life, I was certain she would be forever."
