FALLING FOR MY BROTHER’S BEST FRIEND by Piper Rayne is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing Piper Rayne’s all-new
contemporary romance in the Baileys stand-alone series,
FALLING FOR MY BROTHER’S BEST FRIEND

Let’s say you’re an independent, self-sufficient woman who runs the family company and you find yourself falling for your little brother’s best friend. Now, more than ever, you need to count all the reasons why you need to abandon falling.

 Abandon Falling #1 – He’s a womanizer. Hasn’t had a serious relationship a day in his life and changes women more often than he changes his sheets.

 Abandon Falling #2 – He’s never serious. He cracks one-liners, mostly at your expense.

 Abandon Falling #3 – When things go wrong, he seems unfazed and always remains in control. It’s so annoying.

 Abandon Falling #4 – He has tattoos. Lots of them. Everywhere. Not to mention, he owns a tattoo parlor. (Damn it! Why doesn’t that sound like a bad thing anymore?)

 Abandon Falling #5 – There’s a growing list of how different you two are. You can’t get along for fifteen minutes—a lifetime together would land one of you in prison.

Keep repeating those reasons and drown yourself in work. Pretend you don’t notice his good qualities or how enticing he looks without a shirt, and do not, I repeat, do not agree to live with the man while your place is being repaired from flood damage.

 Trust me, even the strongest of us can only forego temptation for so long.

If you’ve read a Bailey book you’ll know how well Liam and Savannah get on, just like two cats in a bag. Neither one is willing to concede even an inch. To say I was excited to read their story is putting it mildly. The hottest couple in Lake Starlight finally got their time to shine.

When last we left them they were forced to cohabit due to flooding. It wasn’t easy, especially from the start. They bounced off each other like rubber balls. Liam; laid back and chilled. Savannah; wooden and contrite. The captain of the Bailey family business, doing everything and anything to get the job done. How does one go from teenager to businesswoman in the blink of an eye? Ask Savannah, the path was most certainly paved with bad intentions.

And who could forget Grandma Dori and her meddling ways? I love that woman hard, she makes me laugh like a naughty school child. How she bulldozed her way through their lives and never, ever gets pulled up on it. Honestly, if they weren’t blinded by their love for her they might have gotten off easier.

Experiencing the back and forth of Liam and Savannah only made me love them more. He tried so hard to get seen, whilst she only wanted to melt into the background. The weight of the world on her shoulders, no wonder she has no time for games or comedy.

The one thing I always love about these authors’ books is their ability to spin a true organic relationship. They aren’t pushing pieces together and making them fit, they follow the story through and never fail to disappoint. Thank you, ladies, for once again giving us the Bailey’s lives and in colour.

When this author spins a story she really puts the characters and the reader through the wringer. Amanda and Luke meet through a series of happy coincidences and what comes next is pure gold.

Amanda is looking for Mr. Right and Luke isn’t looking at all. He’s a single dad trying to do right by his kids and keep one foot in front of the other. His meddling sister Bonnie is the one who pushes him out of the tree and gets him back on his feet.

I love reading about small towns, I don’t know why but they always give me a little zing.

The way that Amanda and Luke tackle their relationship made my heart sing, they didn’t force it, they just tried on different shoes until they found the right fit. They had heat, they had passion, but most of all they had heart. There was a certain organic element to how they made things work.

Every reader will have their favourite secondary character, mine has to be Jude. The man is a mountain with a gooey centre and soft edges.

I can honestly say right up to the end I was never sure how they were going to pull this off. How could they make their relationship work? How could they be together if they lived in two different worlds?

Once again Ms. Regnery has done it. She made me believe, she made me want it and most of all, she made me feel. Thank you for doing what you do so spectacularly.

MEET KATY

USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract, and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Forty books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled New York Times and USA Today bestselling Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other stand-alone novels and novellas, including the critically-acclaimed, 2018 RITA© nominated, USA Today bestselling contemporary romance, Unloved, a love story.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Todaybestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later.

Katy’s books are available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Turkish.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

Keep in touch with Katy. She’d love to hear from you!

At the end of the first book, all of Theo’s secrets were discovered and poor Zia was struck by a metaphysical train.

“Oh, trust me. I hear you. And you’re right. You are absolutely right. I need to be more careful. I really can’t trust myself. Theo might have all kinds of things to tell me, but it would be better if I stay away from him. Even if I wanted to listen. Even if I wanted to believe him. It would be better for everyone if I kept my distance. Especially me.”

How would anyone act if they discovered a secret so old, it pre-dated their birth? I can honestly say I just do not know how I would handle such a discovery.

All throughout this duet, Theo has had a plan, one he planned to stick to even when he had squishy warm feelings for Zia. Anyone who’s been in the possession of such emotions will tell you that squishy, squashy feelings trump any plans. As the old saying goes ‘Life is what happens when you’re making plans.’

Zia and Theo were an instant hit together on-page. I can honestly say I haven’t felt such an impact since Penny and Sebastian got together. Speaking of the King and Queen; getting to re-visit them and the lives was a real blast from the past. Penny has grown so much in the interim time between Royals Undercover and this newest book release.

This author is spectacular at creating villainous characters. However, I have never quite experienced a character such as Derrick before. Silver spooned pacifier comes to mind. The man was a total doughnut for most of the duet. How he thought he could get away with what he was doing was beyond me.

The romance between Theo and Zia was hot and heavy. Push me, pull me. I was never sure which way to turn with them.

I’ve stated numerous times how much of a fan I am of Team Winston Isles. Team WI is constantly expanding and that’s a good thing. To still see and experience returning characters and their personalities always leaves me with a smile. Thank you, Ms. Malone. I will always be in awe of what you pull off in your books.

Zia…
Liar.
Conman.
Duplicitous fuck.

As I leaned against the wall of the makeshift medical room we’d set up in the penthouse, I thought about the two versions of the man I had started to fall for.

Two versions of one of the richest men in the world. One of them was a billionaire, Derrick Arlington. And the other was someone I didn’t know.

And currently, one of them was bleeding all over what looked like a massage table.

I’d fallen in love with a mirage. None of what I’d felt had been real.

As the doctor Royal Elite had on call worked to patch up Derrick, I watched them both. The resemblance was beyond uncanny. They were freaking identical.

No. You can tell them apart.

Right now, I could. But without the scruff and long hair, would I be able to?

I forced myself to take a closer look. To focus on what was different, what stood out.

For starters, Theo, or whoever the hell he was, had broken his nose. There was a slight bump in the ridge. It was barely noticeable, but it distinguished them. That and the eyes, that stormy gray, surrounded by thick lashes. They were the same shape and color, but Arlington’s were a little closer together. Or maybe a little wider. It was hard to tell now as he had a cut above one and it was nearly swollen shut.

Heightwise, they looked about the same, but I couldn’t be sure. They weighed about the same. And I only knew that because I’d helped drag Arlington off the beach with Theo, who had mumbled some bullshit about me not finding out that way. And sorry, sorry blah blah blah. If I was being honest, the shock had rendered me deaf and dumb right then.

But once the crisis was over, my voice was back, and I had a shit ton to say. Starting with Liar. Conman. Duplicitous fuck.

It didn’t matter what form of explanation came out of his mouth. As far as I was concerned, he was full of shit.

 


 

#1 Bodyguard to the Billionaire is also available

It was supposed to be a simple job….Go to the Winston Isles, they said. Be a double for a billionaire, they said. Well nothing is ever simple.

I was supposed to collect my cash and go home. Easy right? Wrong!

When my carefully constructed plan goes awry, and my billionaire double goes missing, I have no choice but to hire a smart-mouthed, tight assed bodyguard.

Zia Barnes is the last thing I need or want. Lord that woman has a mouth on her. She’s also determined, smart, and has no idea I’m an imposter.

Good thing I have no intention of falling for her, or else I’d be royally screwed.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Laurelin Paige comes a new story in her Found Duet series…

I knew JC was trouble the minute I laid eyes on him.

Breaking every rule in my club. I never forget how he made me feel that night. With all the women in that room, all those bodies on display, but his eyes were only on me.

Of course I married him. Now years have passed. Kids have been born. We’re still in love as always, and the sex is still fantastic…

And yet, it’s also not. Like many who’ve been married for a while, I long for the high intensity of those days of the past.

I’ve heard rumors for years about the Open Door. An ultra-exclusive voyeur’s paradise. A place to participate in—or watch—any kind of display you can imagine.

My husband’s eyes would still be on me. And maybe other eyes too. If that’s what we want.

So when an invitation to come play arrives, how could we turn it down?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Marriage, children and ten years into their lives together; Gwen receives an email from her husband that is a total game-changer.

Unlike most books, this story is about a couple who are happily married and are not going through a rough patch. This is a taster of what their lives have become since their duet books.

How can two people still helplessly in love spice up their sex lives after being together for so long? Answer: The Open Door. Any fan of this author will know of this place, and what happens behind the sinfully delectable doors.

Colourful imagery and hot scenes are laid out for the reader. I will always be a fan of this type of book. It ticks all the boxes and gives the reader either a bonus or a new reader a taster of what this author can pull out of her writing cap. Thank you again Ms. Paige, you constantly outdo yourself.

The subject line in the email my husband had forwarded was intriguing, to say the least. When the notification popped up on my phone, I felt the pull to read it right away.

But Braden needed a diaper change, Jake was kicking at the door of his bedroom where he was currently in time out, and I’d just discovered Theo had found a black marker. The kid desperately needed a bath and my hallway now needed a new paint job.

I pocketed my phone, balanced the baby on my hip, and let out a slow breath while I counted to ten before ushering Theo to the nursery with me.

Motherhood wasn’t always this hectic, I reminded myself. Today was only chaotic because JC was out of town working on one of his investment projects, and the nanny didn’t work on Sundays. While both my husband and I worked full time, we were really hands-on with our parenting. Sundays and Mondays were our weekends. Neither of us worked on these days, for the most part, and we only brought the nanny in when absolutely necessary. When JC had told me on Saturday that he needed to extend his trip in Chicago for another day, I’d considered calling Ruth to help out but decided against it. I could handle three boys under six on my own for a little while, couldn’t I?

The answer was yes. But it definitely took every last drop of my energy. Even running a summer Friday night shift at The Sky Launch, the night club I co-managed, was easier than this.

“It’s worth it,” I told Braden as I laid him down on the changing table. I even meant it.

Mostly.

It was another two hours before I had the kids clean, fed, and settled enough to look at my phone. I shifted a sleeping Braden off my breast and into a position where I had a hand to use. Then I went to my notifications and opened the email JC had sent earlier.

Besides the tantalizing subject line, all that was inside the message was a website link along with a username and password. I clicked on the link and awkwardly entered the information he’d provided with my free hand―my non-dominant hand, hence the awkward.

I blinked at the bold red headline that popped up: Welcome to The Open Door.

Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender.

REVIEW ALERT ~ FINDING STORM by Samantha Towle

New York Times bestselling author Samantha Towle’s newest book in the hugely popular Storm Series, FINDING STORM is available now, and today we are delighted to be sharing
you Emma-Louise’s review with you!

 

The son of an icon. 

He was a legend. Rock royalty.

A man I never met.

But I’m measured against him in every aspect of my life.

The only time I feel like me … the real me … is when I’m onstage with my band. But the more we grow in popularity, the more people compare me to him.

I’m not him. And I never will be. If only everyone could figure that out for themselves.

I need a break from it all. 

Then, a confrontation has me jumping in my car, putting LA in my rearview mirror. And a stupid mistake ends up with my car on the side of the road. And straight into the path of a girl who is the exact opposite of everyone else in my life. 

She’s like everything I used to know.

And she has no clue who I am.

Even if she did, I don’t think she’d care.

She thinks I’m cavalier. 

I think she’s intriguing. And hot. Let’s not forget hot.

I’m stuck in this town overnight while my car is being fixed. But I’m thinking I’m gonna stick around a bit longer.

I’m Storm Slater, lead guitarist in Slater Raze and the only child of the late, great Jonny Creed. But, here, right now … I’m nobody. Just a regular guy. 

I’m liking it a whole lot. 

And I’m liking her even more. 

FINDING STORM is live and available in KindleUnlimited!

Welcome back to the land of milk and honey, a land where drop-dead gorgeous men like Jake Wethers exist. Oh, how I have missed Jake and Tru; heck, I even missed Tom and that’s saying something.

Finding Storm wasn’t just the story of Storm Slater, the son of Jonny Creed; it was a story of revelations. I thought I knew it all when it came to the TMS family, turns out there were still skeletons in the closet and poor Storm got hit by a Mack Truck full of those skeletons.

Stevie was everything to me in this book. She had depth and impact far beyond her years, and as we all know I love a story with a badly behaving grandmother. I’m helpless to resist a kind, baking grandma with a silver tongue.

I loved the family dynamic between Storm and his bandmates. It reminded me so much of the TMS guys, talk about nostalgic. In a Sam Towle creation family is always everything, be it the family you are born into or the one you make yourself.

Like many other books by this author, the relationship between Storm and Stevie builds gradually, amping up the intensity and sexual tension to a fever pitch. There is always emotion and tons of feels. Not to mention enough sexy-times to make a girl feel like she’s living in an oven.

Any fan of this author will savour the depth and experience there is of being back in the world of TMS. The gang is there, minus one or two but it still felt like a new chapter to the lives of the band. Jonny was always their kryptonite and seeing Storm grow into his own person and away from his father’s shadow made my heart sing.

Thank you, Ms. Towle, for once again giving us a taster of the books we all came to love.

TTAC_eBook_1600

 

TTAC_eBook_1600While I was off pitching in the big leagues, my family was back in the small town of Sweetwater, Texas, running the family ranch. Then tragedy hit and I discovered there were secrets that my family kept, problems they hid. I went home, left behind the money, women, and fame. I took over the ranch and took care of my grandmother. I took over hiding the secrets. Then she came to town. A smart-mouthed, clumsy, too-smart-and-too-pretty-for-my-own-good city girl hiding out to write a book. She’s right here, on my property, in the cottage my grandmother rented her without my permission, and she sees too much. She knows too much.

Now suddenly my world is spinning, and she’s shoving a baseball back in my hand while baking cookies with my grandmother. She’s the devil and an angel all in one fiery little package. I decide I’ll wait her out. She’ll go back to the city. Only suddenly I don’t want her to leave, and everything I’ve settled for in my life isn’t enough. I want to play ball and I want her, but there’s that secret that won’t let go, but neither will she.

Infuriation and mistrust never before have been so much fun to watch. Jessica and Jason rocked the pages of this book in so many fantastic ways.

Tearing away from the big city looking for somewhere to hide and lick her wounds, Jessica ends up in Sweetwater, Texas. All things considered, not really the best place to go to considering how things between her and Jason started off.

Jason has the entire world on his shoulders. Living life for everyone but himself, hearing his story left a lump in my throat the size of a plum. To see and feel what he overcame, well, the story takes on a life of its own.

Whilst reading this book I realised what it is I enjoy about small-town romances. The familial connections, the heart, this series like no other I have adored this year and a grandmother to remember, one who ram-raided right through the pages.

So different and yet so very similar; Jessica and Jason are two halves of the same coin. Toing and froing like a well-matched tennis tournament. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and I could not put it down. There were so many emotions I felt whilst immersed between the pages, I can’t regret any of it.

Thank you, Ms. Jones, for a wonderful adventure in good ol’ Texas.

Jessica…
I dart toward the door in the far right corner and enter the bathroom, where I find a giant old-fashioned, barrel-style tub. I open one of the white cabinet doors and also find a towel, but I’m just too wet for it to help. Like that woman was for Craig. Oh God. There I go again. No. No. No. I will not think those thoughts. No more. I’m done. With him. With her. I strip down naked, wrap the towel around me, and hunt for my suitcase, which I hope like heck has the other bag of chocolate I packed.
Naked might get a girl in trouble, but I’m alone and it’s not like anyone is going to see me naked anytime soon. I can go right ahead and happily pack a few pounds of chocolate weight on a petite frame that can’t handle a few extra anything. There will be no more men for me. Therefore, there will be no trouble to be found. It’s a great plan and on this one, really truly, I dare to say, what could go wrong? I exit the bathroom into the bedroom and scream at the sight of a man standing there.
The cowboy who saved me on the side of the road is not only here, minus his trench coat and wearing a snug black T-shirt, he’s bigger and broader than I remember. The bedroom shrinks. My heart races.
“I was right,” I accuse, clutching at my towel, the only thing between me and him besides footsteps. “You are a serial killer.” I search for a weapon and I don’t know why there’s a giant flashlight on the nightstand, but it’s long and strong, and I grab it, my new prize. I also manage to drop my towel. Oh my God, I’ve dropped my towel. Goose bumps lift on my naked body and, Lord help me, my nipples pucker.
I try to grab my towel and almost drop the flashlight, which is a better weapon than terry cloth. I commit to the flashlight and my state of undress. “I will hit you if you come near me,” I warn. “I mean, kill you.” That sounds unrealistic and therefore lacks the bite I intend. “I will hurt you.”
He arches a brow and, to my shock and his credit, he doesn’t so much as blink at anything below my neck. I don’t know if I should be appreciative or offended. Am I not distracting? Am I not worthy of a look? Obviously, my ex didn’t think so and—
The cowboy starts walking toward me.
“What are you doing? Stay back.” I hold up the flashlight, but I’m the one backing up, hitting the wall with a hard thud. He snatches up my towel and hands it to me, his hand brushing my nipple in the process. I suck in a breath, even as the flashlight is removed from my hand and tossed on the bed. “The game is over. Getting naked won’t stop me from calling the police.”
“I’ll knee you. I’ll scream. I’ll—”
“You’re standing in my property, sweetheart.”
“This is not—”
“And yet it is. You picked the wrong house to squat in and the wrong town. I saw where you turned off. I knew where you were headed. Wrong choice, sweetheart.”
“Stop calling me sweetheart. And what the hell are you talking about? Squatter? What is a—” A bad feeling hits me. “You think I’m freeloading by sneaking in here and now I’m trying to buy a bed with my naked body? Really?”
“If the shoe fits, sweetheart.”
I scowl. “Stop calling me sweetheart. Since when do women seducing men try to hit them with a flashlight? Then again, we are talking about you here. I’m pretty sure you could make anyone want to hit you. Maybe that’s the only foreplay you know. A flashlight and a—”
“Stop,” he orders, his hands pressing to the wall on either side of me, and now his big body framing my naked body.
