BLOG TOUR ~ INSATIABLE by Melanie Harlow

After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we’re insatiable.

Today we are thrilled to be on tour with USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow’s all-new irresistible friends-to-lovers
stand-alone romance, INSATIABLE

Insatiable AMAZON

I didn’t mean to see him naked–it was an accident.

It had to be, right?

Because Noah McCormick and I have never been anything more than friends. In all the years I’ve known him, he’s never once laid a finger on me. And even though he was a cute lifeguard at 16 and a hotter-than-hell sheriff’s deputy at 34, he’s always been that protective guy I could trust to keep his hands to himself. I never wanted to mess with that.

Until I walked in on him getting out of the shower and saw his hard, muscular body totally bare and dripping wet. At that moment I never wanted to mess with anything so badly in my entire life.

I should have covered my eyes. Said I was sorry. At the very least, I could have handed him a towel.

After all, I was only in town for a few days, and he was just doing me a favor by escorting me to my sister’s wedding. It wasn’t a real date.

But I didn’t apologize. And he didn’t cover up.

(Talk about a hot mess.)

After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we’re insatiable.

He’s made it clear he’s not interested in romance. Which is fine with me because

I’ve got a plane ticket back to my real life at the end of the week.

It’s all in fun…or is it?

Insatiable is the third book in the Cloverleigh Farms series but can be read as a standalone. This friends-to-lovers romance will thrill you to bits. Meg and Noah’s story will make you swoon and sweep you off your feet.

Noah McCormick is the deputy sheriff of a small town in Michigan. Loyal, protective and alpha to the core, his main goal is to be there for his family especially his twin brother Asher who was born with cerebral palsy. Noah’s life is all about his job and family so a serious relationship is not on his agenda, he is definitely a confirmed bachelor. When Meg comes home to attend her sister’s wedding, she meets up with Noah again and unfamiliar new feelings surface when they got together.

Meg Sawyer is a successful lawyer in DC and her family own Cloverleigh Farms. She was the one who went away to have a career outside their small town. Career-driven and a workaholic her relationships always end up being a failure. Now that she gets to meet Noah again after a long time the gangly teenager is now a hot police officer and the way she looks at him has also changed. Is it time for both of them to shift the boundaries?

Told in alternating points of view, Meg and Noah’s story is about family and loyalty. And when this pair’s friendship morphed into friends-with-benefits, the outcome is sort of predictable. Noah’s stubborn attitude towards a lasting commitment and his reasons why he doesn’t want to be in a serious relationship frustrated me. It takes another family member to give him that nudge, making him think deeper about his choices in life. Whilst Noah is the stubborn alpha, Meg is a strong independent woman willing to take that first step and risk her heart and this is why I love her character so much. This book was a quick read for me simply because I couldn’t put it down. No over-the-top drama and third parties involved just pure entertainment.

For those who haven’t read the previous books in the series, the other Sawyer sisters play significant roles in this couple’s story. The secondary characters are an interesting mix of lovable personas and are as entertaining as the main ones. A dirty-talking cop, a smart and sexy lawyer, this friends-to-lovers romance will make you sigh and swoon. I really enjoyed reading this series and I cannot wait to read the next one. Are we going to read about Sylvia’s story next? I certainly hope so.

Sawyer?” I said in disbelief. Breaking into a huge grin, she started to run. 

I was still standing there in shock when she barreled into me, throwing her arms around my neck. She smelled fucking fantastic. Feminine, sweet, delectable. 

“What are you doing here?” I asked, trying to hug her back without getting sweat or paint on her. “I thought you didn’t get in until Thursday.”

“I changed my ticket.” She let go just enough to smile up at me impishly. “I’m glad to see you too.”

I laughed. “I’m glad to see you. You just surprised me is all.”

“That was my plan.” She stepped back, and I figured my odor was probably repulsing her. 

“I stink, sorry. I went for a run earlier and I never showered. Then I painted the garage.”

“I never mind the smell of sweat. It means hard work.” She brightened. “Will you run tomorrow? I’d love to go with you.

“Sure. We can run tomorrow. I’m off again.”

“Great! Although I’m probably way out of shape.” She made a face. “My work schedule is so crazy, I don’t run as much as I used to.”

“You look great,” I told her. And it was true—she did look great. Maybe not quite as skinny as the last time I’d seen her, but the added curves looked good on her. My eyes wandered without my brain’s permission to her slightly fuller chest and rounder hips. Quickly, I attempted to look at her face again, but then my gaze lingered on her mouth. I remembered what it had looked like the other night in my fantasy as she’d wrapped her lips around my cock and moaned like it was the best thing she’d ever tasted. 

My dick twitched beneath my running shorts, and I cleared my throat. “You’ve got a favorite murder? Is there something I need to know?”

She glanced down at her shirt and smiled. “It’s a podcast about true crime. I’m addicted.”

“Never heard of it.”

A sound of exasperation escaped her. “You live under a rock! I can’t believe you’re still not on social media.”

“Yes, you can.”

“Okay, I can, but it makes it really hard to stalk you.” 

I shook my head. “People like you are exactly why I don’t want to be on social media.”

She hit me on the shoulder. “I’m kidding! I just want to keep up with your life. I miss you.”

“So come home more often. Talk to my face.”

She grinned. “I do like seeing your face. Want to go grab a beer? Maybe some food?”

“Sure.”

She owned me.
I was hers.

Every look.
Every kiss.
Every touch.
Every tear.

It was always her.

This is book two of Jackson and Harley’s story. As expected, this pair’s love and hate relationship continues with a lot of drama along the way. If you haven’t read book one, then I strongly suggest you read it first and find out their back story and not leave you in the dark.

I would have thought that when these two got older their relationship would become smoother but I was wrong. The previous book ended when Harley was fifteen and she caught Jackson and another girl with his pants down literally. And oh boy, the massive cliff-hanger made me want to throw my kindle on the floor and stomp on it. Book two starts when the pair is now in their mid-twenties and their relationship is still as confusing as ever. The alternating narrative between Harley and Jackson switching from the present to the past (the past was not in chronological order) gave this reader a whiplash from figuring out who did what. But one thing that stands out from these characters is that they are still immature and I felt like banging their heads together.

When Harley gets knocked up and a “shotgun” wedding follows, she still keeps hating on Jackson and this boy/man is as insensitive as ever or so it seems. Jackson presents this stoic facade to hide his fears and Harley’s incessant harping on how much she hates him was exhausting. Their story reminds me of that movie War of the Roses without the violence but it does get better.

To my relief in the last quarter of the book, the author gave the main characters more depth which redeemed them. Jackson opens up to Harley about how he truly feels and tells her of his fears. Harley is more accepting and supportive. All the lies are blown open and et voilá, they find out that being honest and talking to each other is the key to a happy-ever-after ending.

Even though the first half of the book was a bit confusing I couldn’t put this book down because I loved the drama between Harley and Jackson. I got my kicks on trying to guess who’s going to give in first on their verbal tug-of-war. This was a quick and enjoyable read and we finally get to the dramatic conclusion of Harley and Jackson’s saga.

BLOG TOUR ~ BETWEEN NOW AND HEARTBREAK by Dylan Allen

Today we are on tour with BETWEEN NOW AND HEARTBREAK, part two in the binge-worthy sexy and compelling Forever Trilogy by Dylan Allen

He’s searching for the truth.

I’m living a lie. 

And as much as we want to, 

we can’t stay away from each other.

HEARTBREAK_RED.jpg

Falling for Carter nearly cost me everything.

To save myself I made a deal with the devil.

Now, I’ve got a second chance and more to lose than ever.

So when he makes it clear he wants me back,

I vow not to make the same mistake twice.

Carter has learned his lesson, too.

He’s done making promises.

This time, he’s staking his claim.

He already owns a piece of my heart,

But he won’t settle for less than all of me.

And by the time his seduction is done, I’ll want to give it to him.

But I made promises I have to keep.

And the devil I owe has come to collect his due.

“I’m going to kiss you, now,” Carter says it like he’s giving a dire warning. 

“My goodness, you’re presumptuous,” I sigh, but don’t pull away. I couldn’t. His mouth is so close. That song was so beautiful and catchy. God, talk about talent.  

“Fortune is on my side tonight. So, I’m going for broke. Let me kiss you,” his voice is rumble. 

I’m giddy with whatever is happening, but… “Carter you said we’d just be friends.”  I lick my lower lip and his eyes dart to it and he moves closer to me. His big hands move so that he’s cupping head. 

“No, you said. I told you it was a terrible idea.” His voice is all  seduction and mischief. A million humming birds flutter in my chest at the perfectly wicked smile he’s wearing as he brings his face toward mine. 

His eyes glitter green hued promises that make heat curl in my belly, and alarm bells ring in my head. 

“What are—” 

His lips press softly to mine and cut off my words. My breath catches in my throat and my eyes flutter shut at the touch. His lips are soft, warm and his kiss is as light as gossamer. He starts to pull away and before I can think, I’ve slid a hand into his thick soft hair and I’m pulling his mouth back to mine. He chuckles before he covers my lips with his, shoves a hand into my hair and slides his tongue into my mouth. 

And holy God, does it feel good. His hands are everywhere, running down my back, cupping my ass, pushing into the hot space between my legs through the fabric. His fingers find the heat and wet that is building and spilling from me. Through the cotton gusset of my panties, his fingers are blunt and hard and demanding and so good. 

I want him. I want him. I want him.

I want everything so much I can’t breathe.

I’m desperate to feel him where I need him. 

There’s an ache that started blooming the night I met that only he has been able to soothe. 

I groan and grind into his fingers until I feel just a taste of what I know is to come. 

“Please,” I whimper and press down. 

Suddenly he breaks our kiss, and pulls his hand away from me  with a curse. and presses his forehead to mine. I keep my eyes closed while I try to catch my breath and still my thundering heart. 

“I’m leaving, Beth. It’s time for me to go back home.”

This is book two of the Forever Trilogy and if you haven’t read the first book (Between Now and Forever), I strongly suggest that you read that one first.

Whilst book one ended with Carter finding out the identity of his biological brother, book two continues with Beth’s “deal” with Duke and their impending engagement. I must say that this tale had me on tenterhooks when Carter finds his way back to Beth and their hot trysts gave me mini heart attacks thinking of the what-ifs. The character development of Beth is a pleasure to read: from being a pawn to her father’s ambitions, toeing the line, changing her looks and finally finding the courage to tell the world what she wants but at what cost though?

“What’s romantic is knowing the odds are stacked against you and taking a chance on something impossible, anyway. Because it’s what you want more than anything else. You can tell it’s what’s meant for you.”

There is no denying Beth and Carter’s special connection since book one but their attraction for each other bears a lot of repercussions. Despite the emotional upheaval, they both experienced their love for each. Although it’s strong, is it enough to overcome Beth’s family duties? The biggest twist in the last part of this story was enough to knock me off my chair. Wow, I didn’t see that one coming! I love the secondary characters, the antagonists are sometimes too evil to the point of becoming a caricature, but this is why this trilogy is so riveting for me.

Dina, Beth’s best friend, gives her the balance she needs and the sage advice she imparts gives Beth the impetus to change the direction in her life. We all need a Dina in our life! The author’s note tells her readers to go back to the prologue in Between Now and Forever to remind us that there is a happy ending to Beth and Carter’s story. However, I found it hard to think how the heck the author could get these lovers out of their predicament in Between Now and Heartbreak. This I would like to find out in Between Now and Always and I’m sure Ms. Allen will give us more twists and turns than a London bendy bus!

TAMING MY WHISKEY by Melissa Foster is LIVE!

Buckle up for a wild ride as Dixie Whiskey finds forever love in TAMING MY WHISKEY, a funny, sexy, and emotionally riveting standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. The perfect love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, strong family bonds, bikers, babies, and more!


Being the princess of the Dark Knights motorcycle club doesn’t come with a white knight or a fairy-tale castle, and that’s okay, because Dixie Whiskey has never needed a man to slay her dragons or make her whole. Even so, after watching each of her brothers fall in love, she’d sure like a shot at her own happily ever after. But with the Dark Knights watching over her and the only man she’s ever wanted out of reach, she’s not holding her breath.

As the launch of Silver-Stone Cycles’ biggest line approaches, Jace Stone is left needing a favor from the one woman who holds the power to take him to his knees. He knows when it comes to sinfully gorgeous and sharp-tongued Dixie Whiskey, he must stay on his toes and keep his walls firmly in place. But Jace needs her for his business—and Jace Stone always gets what he wants.

When the tall, gruff, and darkly handsome biker presents an opportunity that any other woman might see as the chance of a lifetime, Dixie turns him down flat. But Jace is determined, and he pulls out all the stops—sending Dixie’s overprotective brothers up in arms. Rebellious Dixie takes a stand—going after the freedom, and the man, she’s always wanted. One scorching kiss leads to an undeniable connection, but Jace isn’t looking to be tied down, and Dixie refuses to play second fiddle. Can two untamable hearts find forever love in each other’s arms?

Goodreads: The Series

READ THE FIRST CHAPTER

Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KFF

This is my first book by this author and book number six of The Whiskey series. This can be read as a standalone but filled with characters from previous books and a few crossovers from other series that will sometimes make you dizzy but in a merry way.

Dixie is the youngest child of the President of the Dark Knights MC; she’s the only daughter and has three older brothers: Bear, Bullet and Bones. She’s definitely not a pushover having learned how to stand up for herself. She manages the Whiskey Bros, a family-run bar and is so busy with their business she doesn’t have time to find love or maybe because she has three domineering big brothers that scare away any potential suitor. But when an opportunity comes along to visit New York and be a part of a new campaign, she jumps at it headfirst and not only lands on her feet but might also get the chance to finally bag Jace, her teenage crush.

Jace Stone is the self-made businessman/designer of Silver-Stone Cycles whose only goal in life is to be at the top of his game, his non-existent love life is the least of his concerns. However, making Dixie his calendar girl will finally give him the chance to know the woman who has always been at the periphery of his vision since she was eighteen years old. Dixie Whiskey must be the reason he makes that slow u-turn and rethinks his priorities in life.

Although I felt a wee bit lost in the early chapters of the book trying to connect the dots in the family tree of not only the Whiskey family but of the others as well, I really enjoyed getting to know all the characters in this story. Dixie is a strong female, an accomplished businesswoman and a straight talker. Although she comes across as a ball-buster she’s also kind-hearted. Jace Stone is the alpha hunkylicious billionaire who has close ties with the Dark Knights MC and knows the Whiskey family very well. There are no obvious antagonists in this story and no third parties that will throw a spanner to the combustible chemistry between Jace and Dixie. What they have to deal with is Jace’s view in life: not putting down roots and make his business his top priority in life.

The Whiskey brothers and other family members and friends add more fun to Dixie and Jace’s story. For someone who is a tough cookie, Dixie’s weak spot is Jace and her vulnerability makes her more human and relatable. Jace and Dixie is an equal match, both are driven alphas, strong and passionate. Told in dual points of view this feel-good, melt-your-knickers contemporary romance is the perfect book to read in a lazy Sunday afternoon.

She walked over to a table where three guys had just finished their beers and grabbed their empty bottles. “Refills?”
“Yeah, thanks,” one of the guys said.
She walked away with the human inferno that was Jace Stone on her heels.
“Dixie, how can you be upset with me? I gave you a twenty-thousand-dollar donation for the auction.”
She set the bottles on the bar and said, “Which I truly appreciate, but giving of yourself and giving money are two different things. One is easy and mindless. The other tells me who you are. It was a real eye-opener.” She crossed her arms and said, “What did you need help with anyway?”
Diesel grabbed the empty bottles, and Dixie said, “Another round, please.”
“I’m rolling out the Legacy line in the fall.”
“So I’ve heard. Bear’s pretty excited.” In addition to working at Whiskey Automotive, Bear worked part-time designing and building custom motorcycles for Jace’s company. He hadn’t worked on the Legacy line, but he raved about it.
“We all are. This line is my baby. I’ve put blood, sweat, and tears into it. It’s the first motorcycle line that will have bikes designed specifically for women. Nobody’s doing that, Dix. This is a huge deal.”
Bear had told her all about Jace’s innovative, sleek designs for women. It was a genius idea, and it didn’t surprise her that Jace had come up with it. But she couldn’t help thinking about Jace researching the contours of women’s bodies…
Diesel put three bottles on the bar, eyes locked on Jace. “Stone,” he said evenly.
“Diesel.” Jace lifted his chin in the manly greeting Dixie was accustomed to.
“Thanks, Diesel,” Dixie said, and as she headed to the table with Jace beside her, she said, “Congratulations on the line, but what does it have to do with needing me?” She set the bottles down, flashed a smile at the customers, and said, “Can I get you boys anything else?”
One of them looked her up and down lasciviously. Jace stepped closer, and the guy shifted his eyes away and said, “No. We’re good.”
Dixie spun on her heels, grabbed Jace’s arm, and dragged him to the side of the room. She felt Diesel’s antennae springing and glanced at the bar, mouthing, I’m fine! Turning her attention to Jace, she spoke in a harsh whisper. “You just fucked up my tip, and I don’t appreciate it. So whatever you have to say, say it and be gone, okay? I’ve got work to do.”
“That guy was looking at you like you were a piece of meat.”
“No shit. They all do.” Except now that she was thinking about it, Jace never had. Not once. In fact, in all the years she’d known him, this was the longest he’d ever looked at her. He didn’t live in Peaceful Harbor, but he traveled there often to see his brother Jared, who had signed up for the auction. Jared owned a restaurant in Pleasant Hill and lived there for several months out of the year. “I have a lot to do, Jace, so if you have more to say, please get on with it.”
“I’m launching a women’s clothing line called Leather and Lace when we launch the Legacy line. We’re making a calendar to promote the clothing and the new bikes. The photo shoot is next week, and the woman I hired to model got hurt and can’t make it. I want you to replace her.”
She blinked several times, unable to believe what she was hearing. An incredulous laugh tumbled out. “Do you even fucking know me, Stone? I am not a pinup girl!” She took a step away and he grabbed her arm, tugging her back to him and keeping her so close, she could see flecks of gold in his sexy hazel eyes.
“This is important to me, Dixie. I don’t want someone who fakes being a biker. I want an authentic woman. I want you.”
“Do I need to point out that I was your second choice, or maybe your tenth. I don’t know or care, because any way you cut it, the answer is no. I told you, I’m not a pinup girl.” She held his steady gaze with an ice-cold one of her own and said, “For the record, Whiskeys don’t play second fiddle to anyone. Sorry, Stone, but you’re out of luck.”
“Come on, Dixie,” he pleaded gruffly. “I’ll let you auction me off.”
“Too little, too late. The ballot is full.” The lie felt victorious. She yanked her arm free and said, “I have customers to help. Good luck with the line. I’m sure, like everything you touch, it will turn to gold.”
“With you on board, it’ll be legendary.”
“No.”
He leaned closer and lowered his voice to say, “This isn’t over, kitten.”
“What the hell did you just say?” Anger simmered inside her. She poked him in his rock-hard chest and said, “I’m nobody’s kitten, and you’re this close to earning a knee to your groin.”
“You definitely know how to use those claws, and you’re so sweet I bet you purr,” he said arrogantly. “You know you want to do it, Dix.”
His eyes drilled into her, causing heat to sear through her veins and her traitorous nipples to pebble into aching peaks. Damn, he played dirty.
“Careful, Stone. This kitten bites.”

This is my first book by this author and is a powerful story about revenge and the (family) ties that bind.

Veronica de Winters formerly known as Ronnie Danvers is a woman who was wronged when she was young and is now on the road to revenge. Raised by a loving and hardworking mother, Ronnie was a smart girl and worked as hard as her mum. A sudden turn of events changed her life and she vowed to get back at the people she deemed responsible for her heartbreak.

“Always do better than your opponents, whatever it is, always have something up your sleeve that will trump them.”

This book is written in the third person narrative of which isn’t really to my liking. I think that writing a story this way lessens the impact of the drama and emotional scenes an author wants to convey to her readers. I couldn’t feel the character’s inner thoughts and I missed this connection with Vee. The author wrote Vee’s character as a smart, cunning and ambitious girl who grows up to be a powerhouse of a woman. I like books that portray a strong heroine, one that is not perfect and has hidden flaws. What I wasn’t so keen on was the choppy way it was narrated. It would have been better if the timelines had been divided into chapters instead of paragraphs which confused me at some point or other. (A note to the author, I believe that the correct phrase is “air quotes” and not “air commas”.)

The secondary characters sometimes eclipse the heroine. Lorcan and his partner Ian, Vee’s guardians, is the perfect balance to Vee’s stoic persona. Alistair Gerrard is the romantic interest and features in the early chapters but does not appear again until the last quarter of the story thus, he is more of a secondary character in my opinion. Then you have Nick as the wonderful father who gives Vee a new start in life and Imelda, his wife, who doesn’t seem to be the stereotypical evil stepmother.

There is some romance thrown in the story but this tale is all about Vee De Winters, her childhood, her loss and her rise to power. I am giving Vee’s story an added half a star because even though there were more than a few errors, the plot and storyline are brilliant.
