BLURB

Everyone wants to get close to a rock star.

The bright lights.

The music.

Those talented fingers strumming… a guitar.

Everyone wants to bang a rock star.

So why do I keep running from the one who wants me?

I’m America’s Sweetheart.

I have a reputation.

He’s a boy-band icon turned rock god.

I’m vanilla.

He’s every flavor of bad.

And he’s much, much too young for me.

If I end up in Nick Ryder’s bed, my career and I will both be screwed.

…but that’s only if I’m caught.

BLURB


Welcome to Hollywood, where wet dreams come true.

I fell for Marlee the second I met her- gorgeous smile, unimpressed by my stardom… bendy.

Not even remotely interested in me.

Of course the girl of my dreams has to be engaged to her hometown high-school sweetheart. Nothing’s ever easy, right?

Until they break up.
And she moves in with me.
The only person who can help her practice for her next role is me.

Because Marlee isn’t just new to Hollywood.

She’s a virgin.

BLURB

It starts with a bang.

As in me and Hadley, the maid of honor, during my brother’s wedding reception.

Sure, it was amazing, but I’m a one-and-done kind of guy.

After spending years of my life getting screwed over by managers and agents with the Ryder Brothers, I no longer like to commit.

I don’t even play music anymore.

The secret that I haven’t told anyone- is that I can’t.

A chance to raise money for my best friend’s nonprofit to help child stars means it’s time to deal with my block.

Hiring Hadley seems like the obvious solution.

She wants inside my head (not happening). I want to bang her again (she says she can’t sleep with clients).

Between my baggage and her professionalism, can my problem even be fixed?

Or will we both end up just wanting more?

UNBROKEN PROMISES by Nikki Ash is LIVE!

UNBROKEN PROMISES, Nikki Ash’s all-new friends-to-lovers stand-alone romance is now live!

SYNOPSIS

When we were kids, we made all kinds of promises. We promised to always be best friends, to always put each other first, and that no matter what, no one would come between us. Little did we know that life had its own plans.
We grew up and reality set in. We realized that not all love lasts forever, and some promises are meant to be broken. It’s ironic that the promises we made as kids, the ones we thought would hold us together, might just be the very thing that could tear us apart.

EXCERPT

Delilah is a naturally gorgeous woman. She has beautiful hazel eyes that shine with every emotion. Her body is beyond sexy with a soft yet flat stomach and a round, perfect ass. And her plump, kissable lips leave you wanting to press your mouth to hers over and over again. She’s never paid attention at school, but so many guys over the years have wanted to get between her legs. Cole and I have threatened the shit out of several of those fuckers who’d talk about wanting to take her out, knowing they just wanted to get in her pants.
“You’re just saying that because you’re my best friend.” She rolls her eyes and her fleshy lips turn into a pout. Without thinking, I lean in and press my lips to hers. “You’re beautiful,” I say again. “I’ve thought about us all being together again more times than I can count, but do you understand if we do this, it will change everything?”
“Maybe that’s okay,” she says and turns her head to look at Cole. “None of us are dating anyone, so we aren’t hurting anyone.” She shrugs. “Sex is supposed to be with someone you love, and I love you two, and no matter where life takes us, I know I will always love you both.”
I glance over at Cole and see he’s frozen in thought, so I say what I’m thinking. “I love you too, sweet girl, and if this is what you want, I’m down, as long as we make one promise.”
“What’s that?” Cole asks, finally speaking.
“All of us or none of us.”

REVIEWED BY ANNA ON BEHALF OF KFF

This is a standalone romance that transcends stereotypes and gender, a story about three individuals who met when they were in their early teens, forged a powerful bond and loved each other unconditionally.

When Delilah met Cole and Xander, never did she realise that it is the start of a beautiful and unusual relationship. Delilah is recovering from cancer and has learned to cope with it but being ill most of the time she was homeschooled. Her tough character even at such a young age and how she deals with her condition is a testament to her spirit, she is a beautiful person inside and out.

Cole was only ten when he lost his family and has to live in a foster home. Before his mother died, the promise he made to her kept him going and focused but is also the thing that keeps him from finding true happiness. Growing up with Xander and Delilah, they became his family and his support.

Xander’s sad childhood made him a strong person. He completes the trio’s unique friendship that developed into something more special. But his promising future in basketball might also be the reason that breaks the bond between them.

Told from different points of view, this moving love story not only deals with relationships and strong family dynamics but also tells us about coping with loss and hope. To some people, Cole, Delilah and Xander’s relationship might be unconventional but this author’s narrative style gives us a fascinating romantic saga that is very well written. Reading about three strong, dynamic characters in a special relationship might not be a puritan’s idea of a love story but the author tells their story in a way that makes you overlook the traditional. I have read this author’s previous works and although this book is not her usual genre, she definitely nailed it. This extraordinary romance with unforgettable protagonists and a formidable antagonist makes this one of my top reads this year. Be warned though: Xander, Delilah and Cole’s story will crack, splinter and shatter your heart into pieces and will make you cry. You’ll need a blanket to soak up the tears because a box of tissues isn’t enough; best to read this with wine and chocolates. I highly recommend this book!

BLOG TOUR ~ BEST SERVED COLD by Emma Hart is now available!

Best Served Cold, an all-new standalone romantic comedy from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Emma Hart is now available!

BESTSERVEDCOLD-finalcover
 

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Which is a real problem when the attraction runs red-hot.

Ice-cream store owner Raelynn Fortune has everything but her last name—fortune.

Despite living in a Floridian hotspot for tourists, she just can’t get her business back off the ground. And she knows why.

Her rival store next door is run by nobody other than her ex, and with his fancy-schmancy concoctions, he’s taking all the clients two generations of her family cultivated. Never mind that Raelynn taught him all he knows, and his revenge for her breaking up with him was putting her plans into reality—and her almost out of business.

But, she has a plan. The height of the season is just two weeks away, and she’s tired of playing second fiddle to her ex. She’s going to take back her crown as the queen of ice cream, even if it means getting close to Chase once again.

After all, all is fair in love and war, and you know what they say about keeping your enemies close…

Although maybe Chase is a little too close…

REVIEWED BY ANNA ON BEHALF OF KFF

This light-hearted romance tells the story of Raelynn, owner of Best Served Cold ice cream parlour who felt the need for payback when her ex-boyfriend Chase pulled the rug under her feet.

Told in dual points of view, this almost angst-free drama deals mainly with Raelynn’s long-standing grudge against Chase. They used to be the perfect couple but due to circumstances surrounding Rae’s family, she split up with Chase. She thought that her main priority should be the struggling family business and dumping Chase was the right thing to do. But when Chase opened another ice cream parlour right next door to hers, her need to take revenge was somewhat justified. There were times though when she was so annoying because of her constant whining about Chase to her best friend Sophie. Surely two years of ignoring him and her dead-to-me attitude is just making the chip on her shoulder harder to bear?

Chase, the hero of this book can be a jerk sometimes but his heart is in the right place except for when he stupidly set up shop next to Rae’s. After two years of dead silence and snarky attitude from Rae, is he going to finally confront her and get closure?

Rae and Chase’s long-running feud blows hot and cold. The sizzling hot sex scenes between this pair not only melted Rae’s ice cream unicorns and mermaids but also guaranteed to melt your heart and knickers. The cold war (pun intended) between Rae and Chase is made even more interesting when the secondary characters like Rae’s grandparents, her best friend Sophie and Chase’s younger sister Marnie were thrown in. The witty banter and dirty talk will make you giggle, snigger and snort. There isn’t much of a plot twist on this one; however, this book offers you perfect chemistry between the protagonists and mouth-watering ice cream concoctions that won’t make you gain weight, what more could you ask for?

“And there goes my water.” Rae got up and dumped the contents of her glass into the sink. “Thanks for that.”
I shrugged. “Can’t drill without dust, babe.”
“Can’t drill without dust, babe,” she parroted in a high-pitched voice. “Whatever. You can drill without contaminating my water.”
“Remember who’s doing who a favor here.”
She cocked one hip and put her hand on it. “The only reason you’re still here is because I bent over an hour ago and you saw my underwear.”
I couldn’t help the twitch of my lips. “That may be a contributing factor.”
“Oh, please. You keep staring at me just in case I flash you again.”
“Actually, I’m staring at you because you look hot as fuck in that dress.” I paused. “But I won’t deny that you flashing me would be a bonus.”
Rae rolled her eyes. “I don’t even know what to say to you. You’re ridiculous.”
“Ridiculously charming.”
“Ridiculously frustrating.”
“Charmingly frustrating.”
“You—” She stopped and pointed at me. “You are. You are. You!” she growled and stomped into the kitchen.
I choked back a laugh. “I am delightful, handsome, and phenomenal in bed!”
She came back within seconds. “If you’re trying to make me fall in love with you again, you’re failing dismally.”
“Technically, I’m not trying. I’m such a delight you’ll fall back in love with me anyway.”
“You’re a raging egomaniac.”
“And you are a beautiful ray of happiness.”
“And you—wait, what?” She frowned. “When did this get turned around on me? Stop complimenting me. You don’t compliment me when I insult you.”
I leaned against the wall, still holding onto the drill. “All right, you’re a miserable little shit. Is that better?”
Her lips twitched as she tried not to laugh. “No. You’re supposed to compliment me even when I tell you not to.”
“I’m not falling for your female psychobabble.” I pushed off the wall and looked for the next ‘x.’ “Compliment yourself. I have no problem doing it.”
“I compliment myself all the time. Have you seen my boobs?”
I shot her a side-eye. “Yes. I’m also fond of those.”
Rae folded her arms across her chest. It did nothing to further her cause of pretending to be annoyed. All it did was push her tits up.
“If you’re trying to make me stop looking at your tits, you’re doing a bad job.”
She looked down and immediately dropped her arms. “Yeah, well, shut up.” She sniffed. “How many holes are left?”
I scanned the wall. “Three. You should try one. It won’t kill you.”
She shifted. “No offense, but I don’t know if I trust you around me with tools.”
“I wasn’t even near you when you dropped the scraper on your foot. I won’t drop the drill. I promise.” I paused. “If anything, I’m the one who should be worried given that you’ve already dropped the drill once.”
“That was an accident.”
“Exactly.” I pushed off the wall. “Come on. You might learn something.”
“I doubt it,” she mumbled, wiping her hands off on her dress and coming to stand at my side. “Okay, let’s humiliate me.”
I laughed and drew her into my body. She nestled against me as if she were made for me. Her ass curved perfectly into my hips, and the gentle sweep of her back flattened against my stomach and chest like a missing puzzle piece.
“Wrap your hand around the handle,” I said, raising her hand to it. “And hold onto it. Tight.”
“I think I can figure that out.”
“Remember who dropped the drill.”
She sniffed. “I didn’t expect the wall to be so hard.”
“Rae, it’s fucking brick. Not marshmallow. What the hell did you expect?”

ADD TO YOUR TBR

KaznacheiA long time ago, life was nothing but never-ending suffering.

The brotherhood welcomed me with open arms, giving me a chance even though I hated everything about it.

For years I lived on the edge of desperation, seeking solace in things that never gave me peace.

Until she showed up, changing everything…and demanding it all.

A beautiful yet stubborn FBI agent who made me crazy with every breath she took.

Unfortunately, her presence awakened the evils of my past that would not rest until they destroyed what I held dear to my heart.

EXCERPT

“Your place or mine?” As the words spilled from my lips, thunder echoed in the sky and I barely contained a grin.

Even nature was shocked with the FBI agent wanting to hook up with a Bratva member.

 

About the Author:

V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her momma over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied filmmaking and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn’t happen. Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it. When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favorite authors.

FAUX PAS by Natasha Madison is LIVE!

We are delighted to share Natasha Madison’s all-new contemporary romance, FAUX PAS

 

Meghan
Five days in Paris sounded like a great idea for three friends. Especially when amazing wine was in play.

It didn’t matter that our rented “apartment” only had one bed, and barely enough space to breathe, we were in Paris and our motto was c’est la vie.

Nothing would faze us, not even the rude waiter at the first restaurant we went to, or the insanely hot manger who was insulted when a bottle of wine was returned.

Nothing could bring me down or knock me off my path to the best vacation of my life.

Alex

I had six days in Paris and then I’d go back to my wine vineyard. It was smooth sailing, until three “americans” came into the restaurant and returned my newest full bodied, savory creation.

I ignored her until she stormed out of the restaurant looking for a taxi at one in the morning. I couldn’t leave her wandering around the streets of Paris, could I?

I’d give her a ride, make sure she was safe, and my duty would be done. Except, was it?

Something about her pulled me.

This could be a vacation fling. After all, there is no real reason for her to know my interesting secret.

I’m France’s most eligible bachelor.

This faux pair is almost a faux pas…

Drinking too much and spending time with good friends never ended with such mixed emotions. Meghan, Kate, and Diana drink too much wine and subsequently end up on a flight to Paris. Five days in the capital of France, full of sightseeing, eating, and drinking; what could possibly go wrong? Queue the most hilarious introduction of a love interest I have read in such a long time.

Alex got under my skin so very early on. He’s constantly popping up whenever Meghan is out with the girls and is both dreamy, stalkerish and has charm, wit and personality. Everything a hot-blooded woman needs to purr. His inability to stay behind the line is endearing and truly swoon-worthy. He has secrets; secrets he is trying to keep hidden. Add to this the fact he knows he should be keeping his head down and just can’t, well he comes across as mysterious. I couldn’t help but fall in love with him. He knows no bounds.

“The only thing I’m sure of is that if I don’t do this, I’ll regret it the rest of my life.” 

Meghan is an angel. She loves completely and defends without question. Her friends will always keep her safe. Their interactions were the pinnacle points of hilarity and joy. They just wanted to enjoy their vacation and quite possibly consume their weight in food and alcohol. It’s refreshing to read of women who do exercise but also actually eat something other than a salad. There is a large amount of French in this book, which is translated to English straight after, this can be distracting but the story is worth bearing with.

And this is when I get into my most favorite part of any book. Yup, the sex! The scenes scorched my kindle and increased my heart rate. Hot and intense does not even cover what I read in these scenes.

“I never could picture what my wife would look like, but today, with everyone there celebrating, I finally had a picture in my head, and it was you.” 

The story was driven by the limited timeframe the girls had. We all knew that at the end of their trip they would be going back to Canada. They squeezed as many experiences into their time there as they could. Inevitably, Faux Pas hits the rocky part of the tale. Untold stories and secrets are revealed and when Alex and Meghan are tested to their limits. Do they overcome this dilemma and find a way to repair the trust? Can they find a way to make a relationship work considering their distances? Check this little gem out and you’ll find out for yourselves.

 

He makes his way through the tables, straight to ours. “quel est le problème?” What is the problem, his voice comes out gruff, the smell of his musk hitting my nose.

“Le vin n’est pas bon,” The wine isn’t good, I start saying, and I look at his eyes that look almost black. I’m not sure if it’s his natural color, or if the restaurant is dimmer now than before, or maybe it’s just his form blocking the lights. “il a un goût de vinaigre.” It tastes like vinegar, and I’m not sure it was the right thing to say or not. He stares at me, not saying a word. “Taste it.” I give up on my French and switch to English. “You’ll see.”

I’m waiting for him to say something back, but he doesn’t. Instead, he turns around and walks away from the table, going into the back. “What the fuck just happened?” Diana says in a whisper. We all turn to see where he went, checking to see if he is going to storm back in.

“She insulted his wine,” Kate says, leaning in and speaking softly.

I throw my hands in the air. “It was shit,” I say louder than I wanted to. “You guys said it yourself.” Looking around, I see that a couple of the tables are looking at us, but the majority of the tables are deep in their own conversations and not paying attention.

We don’t say anything else when we see the waiter come back with a new bottle in one hand and a new wine glass in the other. He uncorks the wine, then pours a touch in and waits for me to taste it. I don’t say anything to him; I just nod my head, and he puts the bottle in the middle of the table. “I guess I will pour the wine,” Kate says, picking up the bottle and pouring it in everyone’s glass. I pick up the glass of wine and bring it to my lips. The cold glass is resting on my lips when I feel someone staring at me. I look down and take a sip, then look around, and I guess it’s just me because no one is looking in my direction.

By the time we finish dinner, we’ve drunk two more bottles. and everyone is laughing and having a great time. The food was amazing. “We need a taxi,” I say. Getting up, I grab my jacket, shrugging it on.

“I think we can walk to the corner that way,” Diana says, pointing at the sky, “and flag one down.”

“If we go that way,” Kate says, pointing at the sky, “we need to call NASA.” We all laugh out loud while the waiter comes to take the bill from us.

“Merci.” We smile at him as he walks away, still not saying a word.

“Yes, thank you for my glass of ice cubes that you only brought me one of even though I asked for seven,” Kate says, laughing while trying to whisper. “And thank you for pouring our wine.”

“Okay, let’s go,” I say, walking to the front door.

“I’m going to ask him for a taxi,” Kate says, going to the waiter who stands at the hostess counter and asking him for a cab.

I watch from the front door as Diana stands behind her while I look in my bag and pull out my lip gloss.

“Pardon.” I hear Kate say loudly, and I look up.

“Vous pensez qu’après tout ce que vous avez fait ce soir vous méritez que je vous appelle un taxi ?” I stand here with my mouth open in shock when he answered her. Do you think after everything you did to me tonight that you deserve that I call you a taxi?

Kate starts. “What did I do? Expect you to do your job?” she says, and Diana grabs her arm, pulling her to the front door.

“Did he just say …?” I ask her when we are standing outside in front of the restaurant, the wind blowing my hair in front of my face. I turn my head, making it fly back the other way.

“So it’s safe to say,” Diana starts with a laugh, “we aren’t coming back to this restaurant.”

“Take a picture of it, and tomorrow we can go on Yelp and leave a bad review,” Kate says, grabbing her phone from her pocket.

“Let’s just go,” I say, and the three of us look around at the desolate street.

“What time is it?” I ask and take out my phone. “Shit, it’s one a.m.”

“Yeah,” Diana says. We look right down the dark street and see some traffic coming from up ahead. “We should walk to that street and flag down a taxi.”

We all nod and start walking with Kate in the middle. “He was such an ass,” Kate says, “and the boss or manager was an even bigger ass.”
“Seriously,” I say, turning to them. “It’s like it was my fault his wine was shit,” I say, and then we all stop when a white four-door Audi stops next to us, surprising us.

“Get in.” The voice sounds familiar, but the street is so dark it doesn’t help. I lean in a bit to see his face, and I’m shocked when I see it’s the manager from the restaurant.

 

 

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…
