Beard Mode by Lani Lynn Vale ~ SALE BLITZ ~

Title: Beard Mode
Series: The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC Series #1
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: February 23, 2017


Aaron don’t ever call me Fatbaby’ Sims is lucky to be alive. Or at least that is what everyone keeps telling him. He doesn’t feel lucky, though.
He’s scarred, has more than a little bit of a bad attitude, and there isn’t a single day that goes by that he doesn’t wish his wife would’ve just finished off the job.
After being denied his old position at the fire department, he leaves, and doesn’t look back. He heads straight to Alabama and into the semi-welcoming arms of The Dixie Wardens MC. There he becomes a part of a brotherhood that forces him to get back in the land of the living.
---
Imogen is a smart girl. A girl who doesn’t always make the best decisions.
Her heart is in the right place when she walks into that prison, but it doesn’t take long for her to realize that her heart shouldn’t have had any say so in the matter. Especially when one wrong move lands her in the arms of a scarred man that looks frightening enough to scare any sane woman away.
Immediately enthralled by the angry man, she tries to get closer to him. But the harder she tries to get to know him, the further he pushes her away.
---
The only thing Aaron wanted to do after his now ex-wife was sent to jail was escape. Escape the awful memories. The pity-filled eyes. The curious glances.
He does a damn fine job at ensuring he draws as little as attention as possible, but then that annoying woman with her startling blue eyes starts hammering away at his resolve. Makes him feel when he doesn’t want to feel.
Imogen comes into his life and carves out a place for herself, obliterating his defenses one heated kiss at a time.
It doesn’t take long, and he realizes he’s in deep. Too deep to ever want to come out.
Imogen will know what it’s like to be loved by a reject.

“New guy.”  Someone muttered behind me.
I turned only my head to find Stone, the president, staring at me with hard eyes.
“Yeah?” I asked him, dropping my bag on the floor and heading in his direction instead of out the door like I’d originally intended.
“You’re here because you have a special set of skills that we need.”  The leader of the band of misfits, Stone, drawled.
I nearly laughed.
“That sounds like a bad line out of a movie.” I muttered, wondering where he was going with this.
He tossed me a glare and then yelled.
“Truth!”  Stone yelled.  “Ghost! Get the fuck in here!”
Ghost and Truth walked in the door at the same time, both of them turning to the side to walk inside, and stared at Stone
“Ghost, hold Truth down so New Guy can give him the fuckin’ shot.” Stone grumbled.
Ghost tackled Truth and wrestled him to the desk, then sat on him while Stone leaned back and watched.
“No, motherfucker!” Truth yelled.  “I don’t want it!”
“It’s the fuckin’ flu shot, you dumb shit.  Not a fuckin’ tracking device. Take a fuckin’ chill pill.”  Stone grumbled, staring at the scuffle that was going down in front of him.
I picked up the syringe from the table, similar to the one I’d given everybody else’s flu shot with, and stabbed it in the meat of Truth’s arm.
Truth bellowed in rage, and I flipped the guard up on the syringe before tossing it into the trash can.
“Done?” I asked Stone.  “I have to get to work.”
Stone nodded.
“Yeah, thanks.” He nodded. “Have fun at the nut house.”
I grunted something unintelligible, causing him to laugh.
“Don’t sound so excited.” He laughed.
I flipped him off and walked out the door just as Ghost was letting Truth up
“Why you gotta be such a big motherfucker?”  Truth growled.  “If you’d been anyone else, I’d have gotten away.”
“Why do you think I called Ghost instead of anyone else?”  I heard Stone reply.
I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.

Oh Tequila #1, Standalone
Limitless Publishing
New Adult Romantic Comedy




Tequila, you failed me.

You left me in a terrible haze, and I can’t find my god damn wallet.

Or my left shoe.

How the hell does one lose their shoe?

I have no f*cking clue.

All I know is that my night started out with one thing in mind…to have a little fun.

The problem with that? I can’t remember a damn thing, except one.

Morgan’s soft and needy moans. It’s a sound I will never forget, just thinking about it makes my heart race and my pulse quicken. And I want to hear it over and over again…I craved it.

But Morgan’s a mystery. The harder I try the more she resists. There’s one thing she doesn’t know about me though…I’m not one to give up.

I’ll play her game, I’ll let her think she’s won. But in the end, I will have her.

Because all I need is Just One Chance to prove she’s meant for me…

AMIE'S 4 STAR REVIEW

This story had me laughing , swooning , blushing and I even had a bit of emotion break through when it came to a certain young boy Toby.  I always enjoy CAH so it was no surprise that I enjoyed this and will definitely be waiting to get Red's story !! 

The college life is always fun to read about. Easy to relate because we have all been there in some aspect - partying , relationships , dumb choices !! Morgan is that 19 year old that has too much on her plate and never allows herself to let go and have fun. She loves her family beyond words and her bestie roommate too. She keeps to herself and besides Marcus she never lets anyone in. Xavier may be a frat guy and enjoy a drink and party BUT he isn't as wild and crazy as the rest of his frat bros. He also loves his family and because of his dad he knows that hard work can pay off and he really is a simple guy and a lover at heart. The night Morgan decides to let loose and let her guard down just happens to be the same night that Xavier goes beyond his normal craziness. I have to say they were lucky they wound up with each other because not all crazy frat parties end on a good note !! I laughed a ton when Xavier gets up and starts to realize he has no recollection of where he is and what happened !! I also loved the glimpse we got of the fun and in control Morgan. Obviously this story leads us on the chase - can Xavier catch Morgan or will his frat boy ways ruin the progress he made on her walls ?? 






EXCERPT:


Before I could say anything, Xavier hooked me around the waist and stepped closer to Pete. “Hi, you must be Pete,” he said, thrusting his hand out toward the dumbfounded man. “I’m Xavier, Morgan’s boyfriend, and we’re here to meet Marcus.” 

“Um, y-y-yeah.” I felt awful at Pete’s obvious stuttering. “L-l- let me show you both to your table.” 

“You are awful.” I slapped at his arm as he slid his hand lower, cupping my ass. “What are you gonna do next, pee on my leg?” 

I walked away from him but I could hear his laughter echoing behind me. Apparently Xavier Stone was on some type of high horse. As I approached the table I had a feeling that my best friend had some involvement in this fiasco.






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.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.

Amie's Review of The Forbidden by Jodi Ellen Malpas ~ BLOG TOUR ~

SBPRBanner-JEM-TF-BT

The Forbidden by Jodi Ellen Malpas 

Publication Date: August 8th, 2017 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

The Forbidden, an all-new story from Jodi Ellen Malpas is available now!!

TheForbidden


Annie has never experienced the 'spark' with a guy-that instant chemistry that renders you weak in the knees. That is, until a night out brings her face to face with the dangerously sexy and mysterious Jack. It's not just a spark that ignites between them. It's an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.
Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who's had such a powerful impact on her must be dangerous. She has no idea that he belongs to another. That he's forbidden.

💛 A Note From The Author 💛

  “The Forbidden” is exactly that. Not allowed. Prohibited. Banned. At least, that’s what society says. But what about your heart? It took a massive leap of faith for me to put these words on paper. I’ve always said that I write what my heart tells me to write, not what people want me to write. Never has my own motto been so significant in my writing career. I questioned my sense when I came up with the idea of The Forbidden. Then I reminded myself of my motto, of my heart’s desire, and my heart really wanted to tell this story, despite knowing that it might not be what people expect from me. I couldn’t let my fear of the taboo subject matter dictate my writing. So I dove right in—no holding back, no inhibitions, no softly-softly approach. The Forbidden is controversial. I’ve no doubt it’ll cause debate, and I’m cool with that. As a writer, you accept that what you send out into the world is going to be picked apart, sometimes for the good, sometimes for the bad. This story is about the conflict. The feelings. The questions. It’s about the heart ruling the head. I ask you to go into it with an open mind, and please remember that it is a story. One of passion, of love, and of heartache. It’s about falling in love with the wrong person at the wrong time. Because it happens. Every single day. But above all of that, it’s about being true to yourself and your heart. It’s about finding your soulmate and fighting for them. It’s about standing by what you believe in. And we all believe in true love.

AMIE'S 5 STAR REVIEW

As heartbreaking and emotionally charged as parts of this story were I truly enjoyed it and could relate to a few things going on that made the emotion that much more real. Everyone freaks out about cheating in books and although I am not a fan of cheaters - this is a story - cheating does happen in real life - it sucks and you feel for the person but at the same time if you know you are reading a story you should be able to set aside the need for every story to be an HEA or wrapped in a pretty bow. I for one love the angst , heartache and bad stuff as much as the good. If I am reading a story and my heart it breaking for the characters and I am relating to emotions from the past I would say that author was pretty successful in their writing !! This story is an example of that for sure. I mean if This Man wasn't enough to get your heart rate going we now have The Forbidden !! JEM really knows how to write to keep you engaged and feeling. The heat is off the charts - the emotion is brutal and the danger/suspense is edge of your seat worthy. 

Jack and Annie have one of those whirlwind meetings - the connection is strong the chemistry is off the charts and in the end so many things have been said and done out of character that neither can forget the other. Obviously this is how the story is set to flow. Never to be seen again is not going to happen because between Annie's new job and Jack's current job their lives will be intertwined for months. Can they stay professional - will they succumb to the madness - can Jack be who he wants to be finally - who will get hurt and who will get the HEA !!?? Again - there is a warning - the title is true to the story and I will say that I was emotionally exhausted at the end.  And I will also add I love an author who writes what she wants and not just to please everyone- the second we start telling authors how to write or what to write the story is no longer theirs and why would you want that !!

Jill's Review of Cockloft by K.C. Lynn ~ RELEASE BLITZ ~ GIVEAWAY ~


Title: COCKLOFT
Author: KC Lynn
Release Date: August 18, 2017
TBR Link: Goodreads



Synopsis


Cockloft: A firefighter term used as a structural space above ceiling and below rafters, often connecting adjacent occupancies and permitting fire to spread laterally, often unseen.

Gabriel Martinez is the most arrogant and infuriating man I’ve ever met. He has a knee-weakening smirk that makes me want to kiss—no—slap it off his rude, sexy face. Judging by his ego, you’d think the hose in his pants is as big as the one on his fire truck. Not that I know anything about that nor do I want to. Nope, not at all. He’s already been forgotten like last season’s Michael Kors.

CeCe Kensington is as pretentious and spoiled as they come. The ridiculous purses she shoulders around are as big as her attitude. And don’t get me started on her mile-long legs or full, glossy lips that are meant to be wrapped around a guy’s… If she only knew the dirty things I think about doing to that sassy mouth of hers, she'd be hightailing it back to her side of town.

✿¸.•´¸✿*´¨) ¸.•*¨✿

When the beautiful boutique owner and sexy firefighter meet in the most unlikely situation, their two worlds collide, creating an explosion of misperceptions and combustible heat, trapping them in a fire they never saw coming.

REVIEWED BY JILL

4.5 stars for - Cockloft - by one of my favorite authors - K.C. Lynn. A complete stand-alone that tells the tale of how two people who couldn't be more opposite fall head over heels in love. While this book is different from the author's usual work it was a perfect "beach read" that I finished in one sitting. If you are looking for something to read that has low angst, humor and lots of sexy times this is definitely the book for you.
CeCe Kensington is a gorgeous blonde that is used to the finer things in life thanks to the loving father that spoiled her. While her father has since passed away she still enjoys all things Gucci and Louis Vuitton except now she sells the items in her exclusive boutique. Being caught in the worst position possible by a handsome as sin firefighter who thinks she has a screw loose doesn't deter her from saving her prized possession. What she can't figure out is why she keeps running into him over and over again.
Gabriel Martinez is a firefighter with the city of Atlanta and he was working when the call came in for an apartment building. While clearing the building he came across the most gorgeous half-dressed woman he has ever seen. Even though she is beautiful she is very infuriating and as fate would have it he keeps running into her all over town. They eventually become friends and quite a bit more...
This was a great read with fun characters that made you laugh and sigh the whole way through. With lots of sexy times that set my kindle on fire too. While this one was only slated to be a stand-alone I can't help but hope for more :)
