Scorching hot, crazy sexy, yet still full of sweetness and love Skin Deep will have you dying for more! Fiercely independent Lola is the owner of Skin Deep tattoo parlor. With two of her employees now gone she desperately needs a new artist with real talent. When she finds that in River she has no idea the depth of who he really is. Instant attraction between them has the sparks between them she learns there’s much more about River than meets the eye and discovers a part of herself that she never really knew.

River *sigh* my River. That man is ALL male and every bit an alpha. Possessive and bossy in the BEST ways he will have you melting with how loving he is with his woman. I am completely guilty of loving this DD. With just an edge of taboo (I personally don’t find two consenting adults who are not harming each other or others to be taboo, though I realize some will disagree, so I’ll say an edge) that makes for the perfect amount of spiciness this book keeps you completely hooked from start to finish. This isn’t a dark fantasy about a DD, skin deep is a sweet, realistic, true romance between Lola and River and I loved every second!

From Lola’s sass to River’s broody alpha male ways this book checks every box for perfection.

AMAZING New Release + Review + Giveaway: Crash Into Us by Shana Vanterpool

Crash Into Us by Shana Vanterpool

🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 FIVE hats from Red!!

Red’s Review:

received_10216301038665139

Shana Vanterpool is quickly becoming my favorite author. Crash Into Us was real, raw, and hopeful. Ms. Vanterpool has a way of squeezing every bit of emotion from you, and I love it. I’m addicted to it. The writing was beyond phenomenal. The characters were so real and raw that I ached for them. Jasmeen and Gavin were undeniably made for each other. From the first meeting at the age of ten their hearts connected and refused to let go. After a lot of heartache they found themselves again and when they found themselves they found each other. Gavin will come across, at first, as a cocky jerk. He is one, but he’s so much more. His entire being is centered around Jasmeen and it takes a huge accident to find that out. Jasmeen is lost. She’s so lost in herself she doesn’t even know it. Old hurts being new hurts. Yet as much as she tried to deny it, she’s still connected to Gavin. She always will be.

I’m in love with this story and I know I will read it again and again. The drive to be together, the hurt they cause each other, I want to feel it all over and over again. Why? Because the ending is so worth the pain at the beginning. Shana Vanterpool is an absolute whiz at the words. I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us in the future!

Title: Crash Into Us
Author: Shana Vanterpool
Genre: Contemporary/2nd Chance Romance
Release Date: December 18, 2017
They met when they were kids.

 

They were friends, lovers, and then husband and wife.

 

They were supposed to be together forever.
He was her Superman.
She was his happiness.

And then he went pro.
And she doubted something that was supposed to be forever.
Mistakes were made in exchange for dreams, and hearts were shattered.
Their forever crumbled right before their eyes.

He went on to play for the Washington Warriors. He ate, breathed, and slept professional hockey. All he had left after her was the ice. He was in magazines, he won a Stanley Cup, and he had a crowd of people screaming his name. He had everything. Didn’t he?

It’s hard to move on from an addiction, and she was addicted. Drunk on love too early on, she never truly moved on from her first love. She faded in and out of life, trying to ignore her need. But bad habits have a way of coming back when you least expect them too.

For years they went separate ways, until her Superman falls from the sky.

He was on a helicopter after a big win when the engine cut out. He knows he’s not making it out alive. Even with the screams of his teammates shouting in the background as they crash toward earth, all he can think of is her. He’ll never get to see her again…

Love is unforgiving dragging her back to heartache. She only wants to help him get better from the accident and move on with her life. She never planned on falling back in love with him. She never planned on falling so hard a second time.

Lovesick and broken, they crash right back into each other.

Romance author, coffee drinker, and bad boy aficionado. Every second not spent breathing is an opportunity to write and read. I live in Northern California with my family and actress dog, Halle Bella. (Just Bella when she decides to cut the crap.) Escaping with a good book is something I live for and I write so others can do the same.

Illicit Audiobook Review

Illicit by Ava Harrison
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from Ari

Length: 7 hrs, 46 min
Narrators: Christian Rummel, Carly Robins

Amazon
Audible

BLURB:
I was never supposed to see him again.
One night of passion with a complete stranger.
My last tryst before senior year.
But I was lost the moment his tempting lips were on my skin.
His intense touch on my body.
It should have ended there.
But he’s not a stranger.
He’s my history teacher.
And wanting him is against the rules.
Off limits.
Forbidden.
Illicit.

IMG_5357

REVIEW:

Illicit is passionate, emotional, full of heat and keeps your heart racing. Ava Harrison’s writing has you sharing the roller coaster of emotions right along side Lynn and Carson. It’s an angst filled, love story about two damaged people who are utterly lost to the passion and intense connection they share. This book is one fantastic ride everyone should take.

I was already a fan of this book when I read it, but listening to the audiobook was a completely new and mesmerizing experience. Christian Rummel’s narration as Carson Blake is everything I didn’t know I needed! As if Carson wasn’t already a totally worthy book boyfriend before, but listening to Christian Rummel give life to the broody, protective, and sinfully sexy character took it to a whole new level of hotness. He takes a character and story that is already good and upgrades it to fantastic and damn near perfection. Carly Robbins is also great in her narration. She does an awesome job of portraying Lynn as vulnerable and conflicted without having her come off as whiny and overly dramatic. Also, her seamless transitions between characters gives the audiobook fantastic flow and made me want to keep listening straight through. Together both narrators, along with Ava Harrison’s words, make this audiobook an absolute must listen.

Review + Excerpt: Held in Custody by Ashe Barker

Held in Custody by Ashe Barker
🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Red!
Red’s Review:
I had no clue what I was getting into with this book, but I’m glad I delved in! Vikings, time travel and tons of sexy time, oh my! I’m not usually one for time travel hooks, but I enjoyed this one immensely. Way back in the day a Viking group noticed some strangers trying to hide. They confront them and the chief is killed. Two years later the chief’s wife, Eira, goes to the spot he was killed. She falls bumps her head and wakes up in modern time. Finn finds her pretty quickly and the story takes off! Eira is scared and confused but with Google Finn gets close to her. Both realize they have feelings for each other pretty quickly and fall in love. Eira and Finn are amazing together and I love them both! I was scared through some parts worried Eira would be sent back in time or they’d be separated some way. Luckily that doesn’t happen.
I loved this story a lot, it’s one I’ll be rereading again. The story flowed right off the pages and had me intrigued the whole time. There were a few surprises I didn’t see coming and I was glad for it. All in all this is a definite 5 star read and I can’t wait to read Augun and Breanna’s story!

Blurb:

When he encounters an injured young woman while on a motorcycle ride on the small Scottish island of North Uist, police officer Finn Olsen immediately comes to her aid, but to his surprise her dialect proves all but incomprehensible to him. To make matters worse, she first tries to run and then does her best to stab him with a dagger after he catches her.

Recognizing that the woman is confused and distraught, Finn disarms her, handcuffs her, and brings her back to the local police station, which doubles as his home. Once she is in his custody, however, it quickly becomes clear that his beautiful, feisty prisoner comes from a very different era, and that she has somehow travelled forward in time more than a thousand years.

Finn takes it upon himself to keep the headstrong girl safe in a completely unfamiliar world, even going so far as to bare her bottom for a sound spanking with his belt when she attempts an escape. Despite her situation, she is deeply aroused by his bold dominance, and when he claims her properly she is left utterly spent and satisfied. But as they unravel the mystery of her arrival in the twenty-first century, will their discoveries bring an end to their newfound romance?

Publisher’s Note: Held in Custody includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

Excerpt:

The figure appeared in front of him, out of nowhere. Finn veered to the left to avoid mowing her down. He managed to lay the bike on its side in the ditch, causing considerable damage to the stubby foliage which bordered the road but mercifully none to himself and he hoped not the bike either. The Kawasaki was his pride and joy, he’d only had the machine for three months.
Shit!
He scrambled to his feet and scanned back along the road.
Where the fuck is she? I managed to avoid her, surely…
Finn started to walk back the way he had come, glancing from right to left, searching for any sign of an injured pedestrian.
What the hell is she doing out here, in the middle of fucking nowhere, on her own anyway? How did she get here? Where has she come from?
All good questions. He would be sure to ask them, when he found her.
It was the movement to his right that alerted him. That and the brief glimmer of moonlight as the glowering clouds parted for a few moments. It was enough. He spotted her, silhouetted against the icy skyline as she attempted to flee across the moors. Finn set off after her at a sprint.
The race was an unequal one, despite his recent close encounter with the asphalt. He caught up with the diminutive figure in less than half a minute. She might have done better if she wasn’t hampered by an ankle-length skirt and some sort of flowing cloak that persisted in wrapping itself around her legs.
“Hey, wait. I just want to know that you’re all right,” he called out from a few yards behind her.
She ignored him and scrambled on. Was she limping? Christ, surely he hadn’t hit her…
“Stop. I’m the police, not a fucking axe murderer.” Not that he had his warrant card with him, since he was off duty, but still it seemed worth a try.
The woman was clearly less than impressed. She glanced back just once, let out a horrified scream and found a fresh burst of speed.
“What the fuck…?” Finn lengthened his own stride and managed to grab a fistful of the billowing cloak. The sodden garment came off in his hand.
He tossed it to the ground and charged after her again, this time managing to get a hand on her shoulder. The woman whirled to face him, brandishing a seriously business-like dagger.
“Holy fuck!” Finn released her and raised both hands. He retreated to a safe distance of three or four feet and circled her slowly, his eyes holding hers. Green, he fancied, though it was impossible to be sure in this light. But she was plainly terrified. He kept his voice low and calm.
“Put that down, miss. There’s no need for this. I don’t mean you any harm, I just want to know that you’re not hurt.”
She screamed, her features contorted in horror as she stared at his face. It was only then that Finn realised he still wore his full-face helmet. He guessed that could be enough to scare her, though she must have heard the bike. What did she expect? He removed his thick leather gauntlet-style gloves, then unbuckled his chinstrap and dragged the helmet off. He offered her what he hoped would pass for a reassuring smile.

We aren’t responsible for melted devices.

FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Hatter!

Get ready to love every page of this anthology! Packed with so many unique and irresistible books it was the best kind of binge read. From sweet, to HOT, hilarious, to emotional there’s something to love from every book in here.

My two personal favorites:

One Good Man by Emma Scott

Emma Scott never fails to deliver an emotional journey in everything that she writes. This novella is no exception to that. It was emotional, romantic, and filled with strong characters that make you fall in love. I loved Janey, her drive, her strength, and her pure heart. She was such a fierce young woman. Adrian was the perfect match to her. He was just as strong and kind hearted as she was. This is the kind of couple you read and know they’re the characters that will change the world.

Switch Hitter by Sara Ney

Every time I read something by Sara Ney I’m always blown away. From humor that has me getting weird looks by people around me when I’m cracking up while reading to sweet romance with the perfect amount of heat Switch Hitter had me wishing I could read slower because I never wanted it to end! I loved every second of Amelia and Dash.

FIVE ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars from Ari!

Omg this book is so my jam! I freaking love a good sports romance and this anthology is packed with a ton of awesome novellas by equally awesome authors!

Yard Sale by Charleigh Rose

In Yard Sale we meet Cam and Mollie. He’s a professional snowboarder and she’s visiting from out of town and what was supposed to be a one night stand unexpectedly turns into more. The chemistry was intense and Cam was just plain irresistible. That man owns me! Charleigh Rose once again dazzles with her perfect blend of banter, sexual tension, chemistry and fictional guys you want to throw your panties at. 5 stars.

The End Zone by L. J. Shen

Dude! Sport romance is seriously my favorite trope, add to that hot, brooding a-hole heroes that L. J. Shen is known for, and I knew this was going to be one epic novella. Such a great story that’s packed into a novella, yet still manages to not feel rushed and leaves the reader feeling like they still got to know the characters. Fantastic chemistry, epic sexual tension and characters that you can’t get enough of. Basically everything you’ve come to expect from L. J. Shen. 5 stars.

Emma Scott:

I write romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models. I love to write book lovers; those who have found refuge, companionship, and escape in books, much as we do in real life. I like realism, honesty, authenticity in storytelling. I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.

New Release + Review: Timber by Remy Blake

Timber by Remy Blake

🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Red!

Red’s Review:

Timber is a fast paced sugary sweet with dash of spicy story! Magnus and Lucy are both absolutely adorable. This is a pretty fast paced book with two people who have amazing chemistry right off the bat. Magnus is a fitness model who owns his own tree cutting business. He’s rich and handsome. You’d think he’d be a jerk. You’re wrong. Magnus is a huge sweetheart with a big heart of gold. He has the adorable habit of stuttering when he’s nervous, he likes to bake pies, and he has a cat. Lucy is a tough single mom. After she was cheated on by her son’s dad she devoted her time in her son and her family. Lucy just wants sex. Magnus just wants Lucy. Together they are sweltering hot.
After a little bump in the road, Lucy realizes she could have a good loving relationship with some hot sex thrown in. Timber is a short and sweet book. The ending feels a little rushed but left me satisfied. I’ll definitely be looking for more of Remy Blake!

 

Title: Timber
Author: Remy Blake
Genre: Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: December 15, 2017

 

Blurb
All I wanted was some no-strings attached sex, where small talk wasn’t necessary. There’d be no reminders of laundry that needed to be done and my endless list of responsibilities could be forgotten.


 
Signing up for the Timber dating app was my answer. No wining or dining; just sex. Those were my rules. I never imagined I’d meet champion lumberjack Magnus Andersen, or that he’d be interested in me.
 
We’re from two different worlds. He lives a life of luxury, while I’m barely making ends meet. He’s prime rib and I’m mac and cheese.
 
But the more I get to know him the less those differences seem to matter. He thinks this could work and I just might be crazy enough to believe him.

I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.

Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I’d like or just to shoot the, well you know.

The One Night Stand Blog Tour + Review

TONS availnow

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from Ari

I’ve been on a sports romance kick lately and I was so happy that The One Night Stand continues my happy streak! Funny, deliciously sexy, and packed with all the feels, it’s a book you definitely need to pick up.

Gabe and Rachel’s story begins when they reconnect and it leads to a one night stand. Suddenly, they find themselves in more than either of them is ready for and engulfed in unexpected complications. The writing is great and I found myself experiencing Rachel’s struggle to figure out what she wanted from Gabe and her feelings right along with her. Gabe had me swooning all over the place. He’s funny, sexy, and the way he cares for Rachel had me falling for him over and over again.

This book was precisely what a good sports romance should be. With unforgettable characters, hilarious banter, and ultra steamy scenes, Elizabeth Hayley delivers a story so easy to get lost in with The One Night Stand. 4 stars.

 

Gabriel Torres thought his life after Major League Baseball would be simple and quiet, or at least quieter. However, as he takes over running the exclusive Players Club, he finds himself continually embroiled in scandal and drama. Surely nothing, and no one could make his life any crazier…Right?

Rachel Adler is a blast from Gabe’s past who crashed back into his life with the finesse of a freight train. But she’s a welcome distraction. At least for a night.

Rachel has been working hard to become one of the top sports journalists in the country. She doesn’t have time for a long-term romance or irresistibly charming baseball players. A one-night-stand with the man who she knew would hit it out of the park was all she wanted.

But when she gets a tip that Gabe could have ties to one of the biggest sports stories in history, a story that could make her career, Rachel decides that maybe she has a little time for the sexy baseball player after all. As she gets in deeper with both her story and Gabe, Rachel begins to question who she is, what she wants, and what exactly she’s willing to sacrifice for her career.

Will the potential grand-slam romance be stopped short or will Rachel and Gabe be able to go the distance?

“You have too many clothes on,” she said as Gabe nipped at her neck.

“I agree. We should probably do something about that.”

“We definitely should,” Rachel replied.

She’d barely gotten out the words before Gabe had her moving through his hotel room toward the tall king bed and placed her on it, letting her legs dangle over the sides as he backed away to pull his Commanders jersey off. She gave him this little grin as she brought a finger to her lip and bit on its edge. He wondered if she knew how hot she was–if the act was intentional. But truthfully it didn’t matter.

“Is it weird that I want to tell you how hot your chest is too?” she asked. The comment made Gabe smile as he popped the button of his jeans and unzipped them. He’d just begun to pull them down when Rachel said, “Leave them on.” Then she sat up and grabbed his waistband to pull him toward her.

His erection, which was still straining against his jeans, perked up even further as Rachel’s lips slid over his lower abs. It was an image he’d file away in his brain for future use: her head moving near his cock as his fingers tangled with her dark hair. He let out a low groan when her hand pressed against his dick. She played with it over his pants for a while before pulling down the zipper the rest of the way and yanking down his boxers enough to free him. She stroked him a few times before Gabe needed his lips back on hers.

His thumb stroking her cheek as he kissed her. Her moans grew louder as he rubbed against her, but finally he was able to pull himself away from her long enough to undo her skinny jeans and slide them down her legs. Her thong was next, and he savored the visual as the black lace traced over her skin.

He fished a condom from his wallet and tore it open. Squeezing himself as he rolled it on held back his orgasm. Jesus, he couldn’t wait to be inside her. He hadn’t thought about her in a while, but God, when he used to think about her he’d imagine how warm and wet she was. And it was that thought that had him returning to her, guiding her down on the bed to he could press into her.

Somehow all of his fantasies couldn’t even come close to the real thing. Her legs wrapped around his ass as her nails dug into his jeans to guide him even deeper inside. Then they began to move together, their bodies responding to the other’s in a way that he wasn’t sure he’d experienced before. She seemed to almost melt against him.

The moans and choppy breaths that escaped her had him speeding up, though he didn’t exactly want this to end. He used his forearms to prop himself up so his weight wasn’t on her completely as he thrust into her. Her nails were on his back, scratching over his shoulder blades before sliding under his boxers. He tensed as her fingertips brushed over his ass, and he willed himself not to come anytime soon.

He never thought he’d have Rachel Adler in his bed, and now that he did, he wanted it to be fucking memorable. And not just for him. He knew he’d never forget this. Though her legs were clamped around him, he pulled out almost completely and then drove back in. His thumb went to her clit the next time he withdrew, making her practically quiver beneath him. She was close, and he knew it.

A few more steady thrusts into her had Rachel begging him not to pull out again. Her words only increased the pleasure of the moment for him, and he thought about how he’d never get enough of Rachel’s soft please. “Please, Gabe. God, yes. Make me…” But she never finished her sentence before her body quaked with the orgasm that Gabe could feel too. Gabe continued to pound into her until her climax faded enough that he could speed up to find his own release. He wasn’t even sure what he said as he came, but whatever it was he couldn’t help it. It was probably the hardest he’d come in a while, and Rachel had been the one to make him do it. Jace wasn’t the only one who’d won tonight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Elizabeth Hayley is actually “Elizabeth” and “Hayley,” two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands’ chagrin).

They live with their husbands and kids in a Philadelphia suburb. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.

Elizabeth Hayley’s writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: “I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind.”
