BLOG TOUR ~ THE ROOMMATE AGREEMENT by Emma Hart is now available!

Let your homeless best friend stay with you, he said. Being roommates will be fun, he said. It’s only temporary, he said.

He never said I’d fall for him.

Today we are thrilled to be on tour with The Roommate Agreement, an all-new hilarious and romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart

ROOMMATEAGREEMENT-coverdraft1.jpg

You know what isn’t ‘temporary?’ The endless stream of dirty socks in my bathroom and empty food packets under the sofa—and don’t even get me started on the hot guys who take over my living room every Sunday to watch sports.

I can’t take anymore.

So I propose a roommate agreement. One that will bring peace and order back to my life, complete with rules that might just stop my newfound crush on my best friend in its tracks.

After all, there’s only so many times you can see your best friend naked before you start to lose your mind.

Rules. They’re meant to be broken… Aren’t they?

Another romantic comedy offering by author Emma Hart never disappoints. This light-hearted story between best friends is what it says on the tin: no angst, lots of laughs and quirky family members.

Shelby is a ghost-writer who aspires to publish her own book someday. She is that independent mid-twenties woman who marches to the beat of her own drums and is surrounded by great best friends and family. She is an introvert who has a lot of voices inside her head and thinks having a pizza with veggies on it is a balanced meal! She has been best friends with Jay since they were young kids but when she helped saved him from being “homeless” and moved in with her, the dynamics of their friendship shifted.

Jay manages a gym owned by his father. He has been best friends with Shelby since they were eight years old. A health-conscious freak, he is not bad looking either and is quite a good catch. His moving in with Shelby made him aware of how “crazy” she is but she’s his best friend and even though they drive each other mad sometimes they have that deep bond between them.

This friends-to-lovers romance is cute and sweet it will give you goosebumps and a sugar high. Shelby and Jay’s long-lasting friendship shifted when he moved in with her. What I like about Shelby is her snarky comments, her sass and her devil-may-care attitude. She might be an introvert but she is also confident. Jay is almost the perfect package, responsible, loyal and has abs for days, just ignore his bad habit of leaving his socks all over the place. Oh well, nobody’s perfect.

Their slow-burn romance sets the right pace for this story. Their attraction to each other gradually develops when Jay moved in and I loved that they actually talked about the consequences if they cross that line. Actually, Shelby’s habit of over thinking can be annoying but that is expected of her persona. I love the secondary characters and their hilarious antics, but I also love how strong the family and friends dynamics are. It makes this book a more entertaining read altogether. A great choice for a lazy afternoon I can highly recommend.

Shelby shut the door with a click and peered over at me. “What are you writing? If it’s permission to use the feather duster as a sex toy, the answer is no. Unless you buy your own, but if you haven’t figured out where the laundry room is yet, I doubt you’ll find where to buy one.”She was as funny as a car crash, this one.

“Hilarious,” I drawled. “No, I’m making amendments as I go. I added a new rule.”

“You added a new rule?” She raised one dark eyebrow and walked over, hovering over me. “All right, what is it?”

“Decent clothes must be worn. Do you know how many times I wake up early on a morning to open the gym and find you basically in your underwear in the kitchen?”

“Basically in my underwear? Who are you seeing in the kitchen? I wear shorts and a tank top at the very least.”

“Yes, but the shorts barely cover your ass, and you’re sure as hell not wearing a bra.”

She paused, eyes glittering as she said, “And why are you looking at my ass and my boobs?”

That was an excellent question.

“Because there’s nowhere else to look!” I rushed out before my stupid cock could get any ideas. “Look, waking up in the morning can be challenging for a guy.”

She stared at me.

“I don’t need to get up for a coffee with… you know.” I motioned to my groin. “And see you half-clothed.”

She flicked her hair over her shoulder and walked to the kitchen, turning her back to me. “Why does it matter? I’m your best friend. I hardly think your little friend is remotely interested in whether or not I’m wearing a bra.”

Yeah, well, he is.

“Fine. If I have to wake up and see your perky nipples prancing around the kitchen, I’m going to stroll around in my underwear so you can get a good view of my morning glory.”

She spun, lifting up a finger. Her cheeks were flushed, and she had to swallow before she could speak. “My nipples do not prance. They are not horses.”

I grinned.

“Also, I have no desire to have anything to do with your morning erection, much less get a good view of it, thank you very much.”

“Have I told you that you’re cute when you blush?”

“Have I told you that you’d be a cute dead guy?”

I laughed, leaning back on the sofa. “C’mon, Shelbs. We need to respect each other’s privacy. You don’t want to see my cock hard over your breakfast, and I don’t want to see your nipples standing to attention when I make a coffee.”

She sighed. “Why did I ever let you move in again?”

“Because I was going to be homeless and you’re the best friend ever?”

“Mm.”

BLOG TOUR ~ DANGEROUS BEAUTY by J.T. Geissinger is now available!

A strapping bodyguard and a mysterious beauty on the run cross paths and tempt danger in Cozumel…

Dangerous Beauty, an all-new sexy and suspenseful romance from J.T. Geissinger is available now!

FinalCover.jpg

For Nasir, former Special Ops military man and bodyguard, his new job seems like an easy-money gig: trail a Russian mobster’s runaway wife in Mexico, enjoy the sun, observe, and report. Just one rule: don’t get too close. But it’s all Naz can do not to watch the alluring dancer’s every move. A closer look is irresistible—especially when she’s in trouble.

Evalina escaped to the island getaway to live an untraceable life—as far away from the past as she can get. But Eva can’t ignore the dark, muscled stud who rescues her from a drug gang. He says he’s an ex-cop on vacation. When providence throws them together time and again, Eva thinks it’s all a beautiful coincidence. Now she’s giving in to a strange new sensation: trust.

But Naz has a mission to accomplish and a secret to keep. Eva has her share of secrets, too. And as the heat flares between them, Naz knows that trust could become the most dangerous impulse of all.

For starters, I hadn’t paid too much attention to the synopsis, so it was of no surprise that before the ending, I’d put two and two together and come up with the right answer. Dangerous Beauty isn’t a stand-alone but believe you me, I have no regrets reading this book with its dramatic cliffhanger. It’s also been a long while since I’ve had such a strong urge to stamp on my Kindle! Okay, so maybe that’s taking it a tad too far but after connecting with the author’s protagonists, all I wished for was closure, breathing space…a happy ever after! Obviously not to be, never mind…I can wait for the next installment. Ages since I’ve read a book by this author, to say her latest offering captivated me would be putting it mildly. However, in the beginning, I had trouble getting a solid grasp of her plot as I found it a tad aimless. Could I have kicked my impatient self? Yes! It’s well-thought-out and more important, flows at an agreeable pace. The speed really picks up around halfway and from then on in, it’s a nonstop helter-skelter of emotions.

“You don’t have to get defensive, Naz. I wasn’t going to ask you to spill any juicy stories…” 

Evelina is quite aware of her beauty without any pretentiousness. How it could bring one man down to his knees is another issue altogether. If she could crawl under a stone, her paranoid would be nonexistent but this is not the case. I liked this lass a hell of a lot. When her story unravels, ooh my… talk about putting my hands together and begging for a much-needed break in her heart-pounding nightmare for freedom isn’t in it. How she’d even continued to be a mere speck on earth was a blinkin’ miracle. What she’d been through literally made me gasp for air. Here is one very determined lady. She took a way out. She did everything in her power to make it work. Sensitive to the core, would her sixth sense be enough to survive?

“I won’t let my fear make the decisions.” 

Naz. Blinking heck gals; get ahold of your panties ’cause he’s going to make wish he was yours! There’s little leeway for anything to wrong on a mission which should have been easy-peasy. Report back to whomever. Basically, everything’s under control until a fleeting circumstance. Honest to the core, guarding a secret could backfire on him in more ways than one. Why you might ask is this gorgeous hunk of a man who’s ripped like Adonis and has tats that’d make any woman swoon over in such a conundrum? Maybe he’s found his match and can’t walk the fine line of indifference. Both him and Evalina have a past. He’s willing to tell. Will this be enough for her to trust him? Many questions arise. Some are answered, others are left in the air.

‘Survival is simply the art of suffering gracefully when we’re up against forces out of our control.’ 

Evalina and Naz’s chemistry is like dynamite ready to explode from the word go. And what I really lapped up was the back-and-forth ribbing verging on the sublime. Their wordplay so light-heartedly dished out, came far too close to home at times. Was it possible that one wrong step would bring down even the best-laid plans? The twist and a half I certainly never saw coming. Perhaps I should have known better since one individual the reader isn’t supposed to like was always in the background and the cause of so much insecurity. Before, this person’s stance truly got me stumped and then it falls into place and I hated him with such a passion that I had to put the book down.

“Why is your heart hammering, Naz”
“Because you’re my crack and I’m an addict.”
 

It’s a very character-driven story. The secondary players are fan-bloody-tastic…except one, of course. And I wasn’t the only one to connect with Tabby and her hubs. Laugh-out-loud moments in a situation of utmost seriousness makes for good reading and I sincerely hope the author will throw light on their backstory in the follow-up. And so you have it, ladies! A really nail-biting read not to be missed but with no conclusion. Please take note that I haven’t awarded 5 stars simply because I thought Dangerous Beauty was a stand-alone. Nevertheless—I can’t wait to see how Naz and Evaline get out of this one. Bravo Geissinger!

By the way. Had to smile because Mount Gay rum with tonic water, lots of ice and a slice of lime is my poison!

“Good? No, it’s not good. It’s the best rum in the world.”

I turn to look at her. She’s framed in the doorway with the light bright behind her and her face in shadow, her hair a golden corona around her head. A band of tightness settles around my chest. I take a step toward her. She takes a step back. I don’t know what she sees on my face, but her eyes are huge and her pulse is throbbing in the side of her neck.

When I take another step and she retreats again, I stop. “Are you afraid of me?”

She laughs shakily. “No.”

“Then why are you backing up?”

“I was hoping I’d be at the wall by now. I need it to hold me up. I’m so excited I think I might faint.”

The band around my chest grows tighter.

“Stay where you are,” I say, holding her gaze. The eye contact feels like a touch, like an electrical current running on a loop between us. It’s probably close to ninety degrees, but the skin on my arms raises in gooseflesh. As I take another step toward her, she flexes her hands open and draws a breath.

She says with quiet wonder, “I can feel my heartbeat in my fingertips.”

“I know. Me too.”

I advance another step. She’s an arm’s length away. I see it when she begins to tremble.

“This must be what a stroke feels like,” she whispers as I reach out and touch her face.

“Probably not this good.” I slide my hand into her hair, and she bites her lip.

When I move closer, she raises her hands and flattens them on my chest. I know she can feel how hard my heart is pounding. Her breathing is as erratic as mine.

“Oh God,” she says faintly. “I really hope this kiss you’re about to give me is as amazing as the pre-kiss. I think my panties just went up in flames.”

“Not a good idea to talk to me about your panties right now, sweetheart,” I murmur, brushing my lips over her jaw. “I’m barely in control as it is.”

I nuzzle my nose into the soft, sweet spot under her earlobe and drag in a breath scented of her skin. She shudders. I cradle her head in my hands as her fingers dig into my chest. I open my mouth over the pulse in her throat and she moans, low and soft, arching into me.

That little moan sets my entire body on fire.

With one hand cupped around the back of her head and the other around her jaw, I tilt her head back and fit my mouth to hers.

Her lips part. Our tongues touching is an electrical shock. She makes a soft, feminine noise in the back of her throat that makes me feel savage, like an animal.

We stand in the gloom and kiss, deep and slow, until the urge to push her against the wall, lift her skirt, and thrust deep inside her is a hot, heady pulse in my veins. She slides her arms up around my shoulders so her breasts press against my chest. I feel her nipples, two hard points in a lush expanse of skin, and groan into her mouth.

My dick is so hard it’s throbbing.

“I want you to kiss me everywhere,” she whispers, breaking away from my mouth but staying in my arms. She’s panting. Her eyes look glazed. “I want you to take off my clothes and kiss me everywhere like that. Promise me you will.”

I huff out a breath that’s part laugh and part groan. “So it measured up to the pre-kiss, huh?”

A sexy single billionaire businessman. A YouTube star. And the hottest night of their lives.

When I first saw him, I thought he was too hot for his own good and too cocky to resist. The perfect rebound from my break-up from hell. So I threw my usual rules out the door and challenged him to an anonymous hook-up. No names, no strings attached.

It left me aching in more ways than one.

So imagine my surprise when I show up for the first day of my new job to find him leading the company’s annual meeting. We lock eyes through the crowd of employees, all the intensity from our hook-up like a live wire between us. And then he embarrasses me on purpose. Dick.

I just need to keep this job and make it big. I won’t let this arrogant hottie get to me or into my panties. But he is so powerful and sexy, that when he gets me in the elevator alone again, I know my plan is flawed.

I stand in the back corner of what I’ve realized is not simply a conference room but an auditorium, illuminated by the glow of the Exit sign. My breath catches in my throat, heart pounding like a fist against my rib cage. The man on the stage, the CEO of Omnilife, the Big Boss—Liam Bartock—glances up through the applause for his speech. Somehow, in spite of all the people in that auditorium, our eyes meet, and I take in the same slate gray eyes, the same stubbled jawline, the same swoop of dark hair.

It’s him.

The man from the hotel.

I flash back to the hotel conference room, a warmth growing inside of me, a longing. The memories vivid enough to send tingling waves shooting through my pussy.
