BLOG TOUR ~ MISADVENTURES WITH MY EX by Shayla Black


Today we are thrilled to be on tour with Shayla Black’s all-new contemporary romance, MISADVENTURES WITH MY EX


Can the ex who once broke her heart seduce her into happily ever after?

Once, Eryn Hope fell fast and incurably for Weston Quaid. And he seemed to adore her too—until she learned their love was built on lies when he walked out on their wedding day.

Three years later, West has finally won control of his family empire and fortune, but it cost him Eryn—something he regrets every day. When business forces him to return to her life and temporarily shut down her livelihood, of course she’s furious. But their chemistry is still beyond combustible. So he makes her a proposition: he’ll take care of her until her bistro reopens…if she becomes his mistress. Her mind screams no, but her body whimpers yes, yes, yes.

As soon as West has her back in his bed, their passion burns hotter than ever. So do his feelings. But can he and Eryn really recapture the love they shared? And when their bargain ends, will he be the one shattered this time or will they finally come together forever?

I didn’t know what to expect when I started this one but what I got was the most delectable slice of chocolate cake. I adore second chance romances and this one checked all the boxes.

Eryn and West were supposed to get married three years ago, only West left her hanging and moved to New York. So much water under the bridge leads to all that lovely tension and salacious behaviours I have come to relish from this author. Through an underhanded business deal they end up spending time together and Eryn fights with all her might not to regain the feelings she once had.

‘It’s too late to question the wisdom of this decision. I lift onto my tiptoes and press our lips together.
I’m kissing Weston Quaid again.
It’s hesitant at first. Then, suddenly, it’s a wildfire. Feeling his mouth on mine is heaven, homecoming, perfection. It’s like every memory of our passion that’s haunted my dreams. His scent fills the air with the olfactory equivalent of crack. His touch almost makes me weep.’
 

As is usual for this author, the under the sheet action scenes are intense and super sensual. With this book being told by both Eryn and West, the scenes are set and laid out in a way that enforces the intensity and heat. The secondary characters were just as well padded as both Eryn and West. I found myself laughing at the total disconnect between Echo and Hayes. I wonder if we’ll ever get their story, I sure hope so.

Throughout all the ups and downs, there is the constant of family with Eryn. Even though they know better than her; what’s allegedly going to happen, they keep her feet firmly on the ground and are always there for support. Thank you Ms. Black for once again filling my head with wonders and making me lose the real world for just a little while.

 
“You’re supposed to groom the way I want you to. It’s in the contract.”
That raises my alarm. “It’s not!”
“Oh, it is. Paragraph three, subparagraph six, clause B. You’re to be presentable to my satisfaction.”
“When we go out.” I’m positive that’s what I read. Well, almost…
West shakes his head. “I wrote three-quarters of it myself. I know exactly what it says.”
“You wrote most of that?”
He nods. “After I went home, I managed to finish my last semester of college at Columbia, then attended law school. While working as Quaid’s CEO.”
I blink. “You went to law school?”
“There’s a lot you don’t know about the last three years.”
“Whose fault is that?”
His face shutters closed as he reaches into his jeans for his cell. “I’m done arguing about this.”
With a puzzled frown, I watch as he sends a quick text. Almost immediately, he receives a reply. Then he smiles and tosses the device onto the nearest nightstand. “In the spa downstairs, Leona will clear up that landing strip at ten a.m. tomorrow.”
On one level, it’s heady that he cares about the state of my flesh he intends to use. On the other hand, I don’t understand his insistence to have me bare. “Why are you trying so damn hard to control everything, even the state of my pubic hair?”
“Because I want back the sexual compatibility we once had. I want the naked dinners and the lazy Sunday afternoons. I want the long, hot nights of lovemaking. I want—” He lets out a rough breath and shakes his head. “I want your pussy bare.”
That’s not the whole truth. I know West’s expressions too well. Oh, he wants to recreate something about our past. The question is why? And how much? But I’m guessing it’s not just the sex. Holy cow, is he looking to make me his girlfriend? His “fiancée” again? Maybe…but now that I’m thinking about it, two and two aren’t adding up.

Dylan Locke knows that pining over the young ingenue Audrey Lind is pointless. He can’t offer her what she wants. He definitely can’t give her what she needs. Thank goodness she’s half a world away, and he doesn’t have to deal with his attraction head on.

But fate has other plans for him, and when Audrey once again lands in his path, it’s only too easy to fall back into their easy rhythm. And then their easy banter. And of course, each other’s arms.

He tells himself nothing has changed. She still wants forever, and he still thinks tomorrow is long enough. But watching her search isn’t as easy as he thought it would be, and now Dylan must figure out if he’s really the love Scrooge he professes to be or if he’s been Fate’s willing victim all along.

How does one lose three hours of their Sunday morning, I hear you ask! Simple. Download the newest Laurelin Paige book and et voilà! Three hours gone. What you get back though, hoboy!

Dylan Locke has had me enamoured since he first entered the world of Dirty back in Dirty Filthy Rich Men. I hadn’t known back then that the author would be creating a Duet about Audrey and him. So many ups and downs. The push and pull of a man shattered into so many small pieces it appeared he was unfixable. Full of cynicism and hopelessness, Dylan is magnetically drawn to Audrey. Shiny and glowing with belief in fate that she will one day meet The One.

‘It was Audrey. She’s ruined me when I’d seen her again. I’d been reminded that she was the brightest light in existence. Everything else was dull in comparison’ 

Like the first installment in this duet, Dylan is highly allergic to entanglements with strings. Stringless and bowless, he steers himself down a path of simplicity (or so he thought!) Like two opposing forces, he’s pushed off of his chosen course and towards the one thing he could not foresee.

This read, unlike Sweet Liar, is told mainly from Dylan’s point of view, making for one very interesting foray into the mind of a man I have known for over five books now. I witnessed him wade through his worst memories; from the death of a loved one to the fail of his marriage.
Seeing Audrey from the inside of another person is a revelation. Her story is still full of depth and interest. In fact, the way she is through a large part of this book had me guessing truly how she was thinking and feeling, considering what we learnt in the first part. Don’t have a clue what I mean? Read this duet.

Audrey and Dylan steam the pages like a housewife dives through the ironing on a Sunday afternoon. It is one hawt read, scorching hawt; five-alarm fire hawt…okay, okay you get my drift.

‘I loved all of it.
I loved her.
I was in love with Audrey.
What was I supposed to do now?’
 

The final few chapters were pure gold. I couldn’t get enough of it, but like all great things; they must come to an end. This may be the finale of Dylan and Audrey’s story but it isn’t yet the end of the Dirty universe. Coming up next year is the story of Cade. MIA with many a question being asked who and what is Cade. A name but no story. A name with no history other than what other characters have provided. I am truly intrigued to witness the coming books. Bravo Ms. Paige, you keep outdoing yourself and I’m no longer surprised.

EXCERPT

It was a completely different experience kissing Audrey, after I’d accepted the gravity of the feelings I had for her.

I knew the kiss meant nothing, that it would lead nowhere, but it felt like being bathed in radiant light.

Like I was an imprisoned man in a dark prison cell who, for one brief moment, was allowed to step outside into the sunlight. I was completely present for it. Each brush of her lips, each touch of her tongue—I memorized it all, imprinted every second into my brain so that I’d have it forever. I might still have worn shackles with no hope of freedom, but this moment mattered. It was real and divine, and I would cherish every last second of the stolen sunshine until my dying day.

I would’ve been content with only kissing, with just the shallow lifts and falls of her chest and frantic hands trying to caress and cling.

But Audrey had other ideas in mind, demonstrated by the quick work of her hands at my waist, unbuckling my belt, undoing my trousers, the slip of her hand inside the opening to stroke the outline of my very prominent erection.

“This,” she said between kisses. She pulled at the elastic waistband of my boxers and dipped her hand in to touch me directly.

I hissed at the feel of her soft hand against my hot skin.

“I want this,” she begged. “Can I have this?”

 

 

MEET LAURELIN

With over 2.4 million books sold worldwide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. Her international success started with her very first series, the Fixed Trilogy, which, alone, has sold over 1 million copies, and earned her the coveted #1 spot on Amazon’s bestseller list in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia, simultaneously. This title also was named in People magazine as one of the top 10 most downloaded books of 2014. She’s also been #1 over all books at the Apple Book Store with more than one title in more than one country. She’s published both independently and with MacMillan’s St. Martin’s Press and Griffin imprints as well as many other publishers around the world including Harper Collins in Germany and Hachette/Little Brown in the U.K. With her edgy, trope-flipped stories of smart women and strong men, she’s managed to secure herself among today’s romance royalty.


Paige has a Bachelor’s degree in Musical Theater and a Masters of Business Administration with a Marketing emphasis, and she credits her writing success to what she learned from both programs, though she’s also an avid learner, constantly trying to challenge her mind with new and exciting ideas and concepts. While she loves psychological thrillers and witty philosophical books and entertainment, she is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. 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. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

Just when you think the first book in this duet was tumultuous, along comes the second and blows Depraved out of the water. Delivered has a trigger warning for a reason. This author does not beat around the bush when it comes to hard topics. Pain and misery seep from the pages as if the very fibre of the book is bleeding with the characters.

We start back where Depraved finished and the stakes cannot be any higher for JD and Gabrielle. Destruction and loss are not just physical, they are physiological.
I cannot remember the last time I became so invested in characters at such an early stage of the book.

“It was all this. You trying to repair my soul.” 

The way this author spun the tale, I found my own morality was called into question. Topics that I wouldn’t consider before were up for grabs because of something I read and how it affected the protagonists and me. For long moments, I questioned the devil’s work. One character was so purely evil I’m sure he bled black, not red. It was this particular person who had me wondering if murder was an option and could you escape prosecution from it. I know I wouldn’t look good in an orange jumpsuit, that’s for sure.

Gabrielle discovers so many revelations. Some so hard to bear they nearly knocked the breath out of me! Through it all, she has JD by her side. Even when she’s in so much pain, she can’t bear to have any human kindness. JD never backs off he’s beyond persistent and I love that about him.

‘Oh, JD. You are so complicated, and yet so predictable. Your concern for me, your love, often emerges in twisted misshapen forms, shrouded by darkness, but it is always light at the centre. It’s what has always drawn me to you. Like a moth to a flame.’ 

I have one more point to make. Smith. That man is a danger to any human with ovaries, and it looks like he’s getting a book real soon. Eeek!

About Eva

A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories.

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.

When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

ADVICE FROM A JILTED BRIDE by Piper Rayne is LIVE!

Today we are so excited to be sharing Piper Rayne’s all-new contemporary romance,
ADVICE FROM A JILTED BRIDE

 

What’s a girl to do after being ditched at the altar by text message? That’s right. Text. Message.

How does she pick up the pieces and move on? I’m no Dear Abby but here’s a little free advice…

Advice #1 – First, purge your apartment of all things him—by tossing his belongings off the balcony.

Advice #2 – Do not, I repeat do not, throw anything out into the hallway because you’ll injure your hot new neighbor.

Advice #3 – When said neighbor brings over Chinese Food do not let him stay and keep you company. It’s awkward when you realize he’s your boss.

Advice #4 – Accept his offer to help you with your side business but think twice before using a date to his sister’s wedding as collateral.

Advice #5 – Investigate who your mystery neighbor really is. Don’t trust his word even if he’s the world’s best kisser.

If you listen to nothing else, pay attention to that last one. It’s the most important and will save you a lot of heartache.

First impressions count, right? Poor Wyatt never stood a chance. Words do hurt more than stones, just ask Wyatt’s head. Last we saw Brooklyn Bailey, she was being left at the altar by her dirtbag fiancé. Douchey move for anyone to make but he did it in such a fashion that even I wanted to smack him. Lord help him if the Bailey brothers ever got hands on him, the authorities would never find the body!

From neighbours to lovers; a trope that I have struggled with for the longest time, this author knocked it out of the park and gave me one heck of an experience. Rayne is typically known for comedy and heat. This release does not disappoint in either of these two.

Tension and passion weave through the pages winding together Wyatt and Brooklyn, neither wanting to get into something serious. Frustration was a trusted companion through some of this one. Will they? Won’t they? Arrggh! Throw in meddling relatives and a father with a stick so firmly planted up high, you’ll catch my drift. Why oh why must people do what they do for other people and never themselves!

‘He doesn’t make it hard to enjoy the way he worships my body. His kisses are little morsels of admiration for my naked self. His groans are a self-confidence boost that assures me I’m what he wants.’ 

The Bailey clan have my heart, such a down to earth rabble family. I love them all. They all have such varying different characteristics and issues. Some authors fail at character building, these two do not.

‘“I’d love it if some chick came to tell me something while I was in the shower and she just pushed past the curtain and my back was turned as her hands slid around me and her wet body pressed to mine as her hands continued until they—OUCH!”
“Children,” Grandma says, looking around. “Not to mention, you can’t talk like in front of me, it’s disrespectful.”’
 

And who can forget the ending to this little gem? Those poor twins, I cannot wait for the next installment of The Buzzwheel.

Welcome back to Winston Isles, one and all. An island like no other that I know. Full of intrigue, mystery and conspiracies around every corner.

When last we saw Ariel, her life was going off script in a way she had never imagined.
New goals and new purposes were needed and her friends/family knew how to aid her. Off she went to rebuild her path. Meeting new people recommended for special reasons.
One of these people was Jax Reynolds who had once been on the same path as Ariel. Only he reversed course for very different reasons. A man of honour and respect, Jax is the kind of person anybody would want at their back.

Ariel has held a secret for so long I had given up hope of ever finding out what it was.
This secret; however, is not secret come the end of this book. Her cards are out and on full display. I am left pondering if Ariel will ever get her own book? I sure hope so.

If you haven’t read Teasing the Princess, what’s wrong with you? If you did, you would know how Ariel got to where she is. With a new business to run and clients banging down the door, help is a little short to find. Jax comes on board and is thrust into the role of Bodyguard/Manny. Why the role of both? Read the book and find out!

The client is a headstrong woman by the name of Neela. Her life was pretty uneventful before her longtime best friend dropped a bombshell basket in her lap, a basket that even a stalk would have trouble with. Neela tiptoes through her new pathway trying to adjust to all the changes, never expecting that her life would end up in danger.

Due to the way these characters inherently are, the build-up between them takes longer than most by this author. The end is in sight when they finally do the deed.

‘His lips were shocking soft. I don’t know what I had expected. Maybe that he’d be brutal, harsh. He was big, and he looked like he knew his way around a kiss. Like he knew his way around sex. He practically oozed it.’ 

Can they overcome the turbulence that is their newfound discoveries? Will Neela ever be safe? What did Willa hide and why leave it all to Neela?

I adore this author’s ability to stick to a method when it comes to creating a new book and characters. She never fails to draw in the readers and make it oh so worth the turmoil and pain.

 

#2 Tempting the Heiress – Release Date: April 9, 2019

One error in judgment. That is all it took.

They say don’t mix business with pleasure, but I fell in love with the client and now I’ve lost her.

But I would do it all over again if it meant keeping her safe.

Now I’ll have to fight like hell to earn her trust again. If I don’t, it could cost both of us everything.

Malum: Part One (The Elite King’s Club book 4), an all new dark romance by Amo Jones is NOW LIVE!

 

“Love is savage, love is blind, love is something they may not find…”
Once upon a time, there was a young girl who lived in a battered trailer, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks.
One day, she fell down The Elite Kings’ rabbit hole. Sucked into a dark vortex of lies, hate, and deceit, and spat out by money, glitz, and power.
There were things this little girl didn’t know, things she was about to find out and secrets that have been kept from her. Those secrets were guarded by the boys that were about to smash her world open and tear it all apart…
He may be a Malum, but she is a Stuprum, born into this world but neglected by the choice of her mother. Her eyes may not glisten with stars, but they roar with fire, and when she finally reaches her peak, it’s that same fire that will burn.
Them.
All.
Down.
My name is Tillie Stuprum, and my story is not like the rest.
Everything she thought she knew is a fabricated version of the truth. I’m Nate Riverside-Malum, the one your girl whispers about to her friends and whose initials are scratched down your back. Her story is not like the rest of them, because her story is dead.

This author is known for dark, realistic, hard to bare books. This installment of the Elite Kings was a total game changer, for both the author and the series.

Madison and Bishop are still embroiled in a love affair full of love and hate, but that’s not who this one is about. Oh no! Tallie and Nate get their chance to live in hell. If you’ve read the previous books you’ll know where they found themselves in Tacet a Mortuis

‘I lick my lips and smirk. “Tille is the opposite of Madison when it comes to fear. Madison cowers, gets scared and does a bunch of dumb **** that would have gotten any other girl murdered on the spot.”
Brantley turns his attention to me. “And what does Tillie do?”
 

We all witnessed how broken they are before. But for Nate, that broken far surpasses everybody else….well, other than Tillie but considering her parentage that goes without saying.

‘Pain exists everywhere though. It always has. At six years old, I knew that my life would be filled with nothing but pain.’ 

Love and hate intersect and combine like conjoined twins. Where one begins and the other ends, nobody can tell. Chess pieces litter the battleground like fallen soldiers. Who really is the master puppeteer is one of the so many questions thrown at you.

This book starts with a trigger warning. As the author states herself, her name is usually a trigger warning in and of itself. However, the depth of the depravity knows no limits. Triggers don’t often get to me. But this one? This one actually had been putting the book down and walking away to breathe. I just couldn’t put myself through it anymore, I cried so hard. I had to feel normal for a few minutes. I still finished reading, how could I not? These people have become something for me that I could be fooled into believing it was all real. The entire scene was hard-hitting and emotional.

‘I think to myself about the irony of that line. For I too, know of a place similar to Oz…’ 

You wouldn’t be remiss in forgetting the ages of these characters. Most of them aren’t old enough to “legally” drink. They exist in a world filled with monsters and evil. I truly believe because of all this explains why they live their lives on the more hardcore side. They live hard and fight harder for what they believe in.

‘I wasn’t born with a silver spoon, I was raised by blood sodden knives, and girls like me, we learn to use them as weapons. Love shouldn’t be offered up as a gift to just anybody. It should be preserved and used as a weapon to protect our heart.’ 

Tillie and Nate are so very much made for one other. But just how much can these two go through and put each other through before they lose the battle and just surrender to it all? Their relationship is raw and without limits. They bounce off so hard and fast they spin away and out of control, only they always come crashing back together. Both of them know what buttons to press and they are often corrosive and highly flammable. How could I as a reader loathe Nate so much for his actions and yet still care about his welfare? Messed up book, messed up reader. Clearly!

This isn’t a book about flowers and hearts. This book has a trigger warning for a very good reason. These characters indulge in many different vices, nothing is polished or glossed over. They are as human as humans can be. They hurt, they maim, they can and do commit murder. I will continue to root for them all because of what they mean to me.

Thank you, Ms. Jones, for once again messing with my head. It’s always a wild ride.
