ANOTHER ONE by Aleatha Romig ~ Review & Excerpt Blitz

 

Get ready to laugh out loud, swoon, and fall in love with this new, fun, and sexy stand-alone novel from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig. Demonstrating her versatility in writing, Aleatha revisits her lighter side that you loved in PLUS ONE.

A complete stand-alone, ANOTHER ONE is the next big summer hit.

 

*Shana*

Trevor Willis is sexy, sweet, and oh so fun. He’s also my best friend’s brother-in-law. That should mean he’s off-limits, or that I should be off-limits to him.

Someone probably should have told us that before my best friend married his brother, before the morning of the wedding when we woke in each other’s arms with gaping holes in my memory.

They didn’t.

We did.

The hilarious truth behind our crazy, secret adventure secured this handsome, off-limits man in my heart. But alas, life goes on. After our one secret night, we went back to our lives—our hardworking, solitary lives.

And then it happened.

My phone began to buzz. Each night with thousands of miles between us, we laughed, talked, and shared. And then, the phone stopped ringing.

Before it did, I knew one thing…

Our secret one had bloomed and blossomed, and now that our circumstances have changed I want another one!

 

*Trevor*

Shana Price is that one woman. You know, the one who suddenly makes the world more than a place to work, but also a place to live. Usually shy and awkward, in her presence I want to be more—I am more. I don’t even have to try.

She’s my one. I knew it the moment I first met her. What followed simply confirmed it.

The problem is the little hassle of the thousands of miles between us.

I tried to make it work, but each phone call made it harder. (Yes, that is a pun) I couldn’t take it any more—and she became the one who got away.

Now, everything has changed.

Shana is back in the United States—all I have to do is make her see that her job isn’t the only reason to stay.

That shouldn’t be a problem, right?

From a secret one to another one!

Try Aleatha’s lighter side for a guaranteed smile—the perfect getaway.

Trevor~

Sweet and tangy.

Shana Price tastes like sugar with a twist of lemon.

My mind tells me to go slow, reminding me that I don’t have any right to this beautiful woman. My mind is saying to stop, yet her soft moan is all I hear.

My body has its own GPS with the destination close. Listening to my mind is out of the question.

Her petite body shivers as I tease her sweet lips. They willingly part as my tongue delves inside, wrestling with hers.

Not giving up its fight, my thoughts remind me how forward this behavior is and how it isn’t like me. Trevor Willis is not a man who chases a woman down, pins her against the wall, and kisses her until neither of us can breathe or cares.

It’s not me.

But, it should be.

I like it.

I won’t blame the alcohol. I’ll blame my need to know it’s really Shana and to claim her for my own. I didn’t do it last time, and I’ve regretted it every day since.

When her hands come to my chest, I seize them, lifting them above her head and pinning them to the wall. Shana doesn’t fight; instead, her hips move against mine and our kiss grows more passionate. In the dark, crowded hallway, with my body pressed against hers, I swallow the soft moans coming from her throat.

At that moment, I want to be anywhere but a crowded bar in the middle of Manhattan. I no longer care about Eric’s bachelor party or my friends. I don’t even care about Kimbra back out in the bar. All I want is to whisk Shana away and do what we didn’t do before, what her body and mine are ready and aching to do.

Aleatha Romig  is one of my favourite authors and yet again she didn’t disappoint me. This book is a standalone but you will recognise a couple of the characters from her previous book. This is a story about friendship, love and distance.

Trevor Willis is tall and handsome and a bit on the quiet side. Well this is what everyone thought. Feeling that he was always in his brothers shadow, Trevor surprised everyone, including myself.

Shana price is a hard working American gal working and living in London. On a trip back home to attend the wedding of her best friend, she meets the man of her dreams, or so she thought.

Would love conquer all or would time and distance separate these two lovers.

It saddens me to say but time and distance won the first round.

Let the battle commence.

Is this lighthearted love story destined for a happy ending? I personally hoped so! A chance encounter several months later reignited feelings that neither one of them could deny any longer. Work commitments and distance would once again rear its ugly head but both were determined to make it work this time. Decisions need to be made and actions taken.

It’s hard writing a review and trying to not give to much away as I don’t want to spoil it for other readers. I sincerely hope I’ve succeeded in my mission. My advice. One click this book now. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed. It’s romantic, funny in some parts and a perfect love story.

This book is superbly written, I expected nothing less from Aleatha Romig. Congratulations Aleatha on a well written story that held my attention throughout. A well deserved 5 stars.

REVIEW & EXCERPT TOUR ~ RESPECT by ALEATHA ROMIG

RESPECT – An Infidelity Series Novel

“The making of a man”

From New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a stand-alone novel, a spin-off from her beloved Infidelity series. With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new epic mafia love story/ thriller will delve into a world where family takes on new meaning, and even the inhabitants are suspicious of the next chapter.

“Standing at what I believe is the precipice of my life, I, Oren Demetri, was too young to understand that it wasn’t and too old to imagine that it couldn’t be.

The already hefty accumulation of my successes and failures, bravery and fears, and rewards and suffering, had brought me to this point. It was hard to contemplate the things I’d done, and yet in reality, I’d only begun to learn the possibilities.

I suppose that’s how it was for me at twenty-nine years of age on the brink of all I’d ever wanted without fully realizing the price I would pay. Yet in that moment, I knew there would be no cost too great or sacrifice I wouldn’t make. I had no idea how far-reaching that moment of self-discovery would be because as the congregation’s murmurs quieted, bleeding into silence and allowing the thump of my heart to be the only sound I heard, I was a man filled with love and adoration, emotions in stark contrast to those I needed in the world I’d built or the one I was about to enter.

Angelina Costello was my dream and now my reality. I’d worked diligently to move beyond the actuality of being a dockworker’s son to becoming a self-made, successful entrepreneur, all in an effort to earn the right to call her my own. I’d overcome servitude to others, collecting their paychecks and lowly praises, to become the one who signed the paychecks and offered the accolades when they were rightfully earned.

The world was my oyster and walking toward me on the arm of her uncle was my pearl. I’d found her amongst the empty shells life had offered. There was no need to pry open another possibility. Angelina was all I wanted. Yet my path was uncharted. There was more for me to earn, lose, and willingly give.

The top of that list was respect.”

This stand-alone novel may be read before or after reading the Infidelity series or on its own.

Aleatha Romig  is one of my favourite authors and yet again she didn’t disappoint. This book is a standalone but you will recognise some of the characters from her Infidelity series. I read the book from start to finish and found the story enthralling.

This is a story about a father, a husband, a lover and a member of the mafia. Oren Demetri is a mafioso and the moment he set eyes on Angelina Costello, he was instantly drawn to her but after finding out her name, he took a step back. By chance years later, they re- connected and that is where this love story begins.

Two people in love, you would think this was a match made in heaven. It was, but like many couples it wasn’t always plain sailing. Aleatha takes you through their journey as a married couple leaving no stone unturned. The highs, the lows, the tears and the laughter. This is one man’s story.

Angelina was not blind to the goings on within her family, but she tried to distance herself and her son from the “family” business. Living away from them put a strain on her relationship with her husband. She could see it, but he couldn’t. His absences were noted and his excuses was always business.  A business that he had built up and hoped to pass on to his son. However, it came at a cost.

This was truly a captivating mafia love story. There was one thing I didn’t quite understand although I did try. If you truly love someone and respect them, why would you cheat on them? After reading this book and Oren’s story, I feel that I must now go and read the whole Infidelity Series to see what has become of him. Is his life rich and full or he is a sad and lonely man? I rated this book five stars and can’t recommend it enough. The story flowed continuously throughout and was superbly written, holding my attention at all times. Congratulations Aleatha!

 

 

Angelina Costello was the only woman to ever take my breath away. I couldn’t not speak to her. “I haven’t seen you since NYU.”
“I’ve been living overseas, studying history and architecture in Italy.”
“Italy! Molto bene. And now you’re back?” I asked.
“I am.”
“To stay?”
“I believe so.”
“Perhaps we could see one another,” I proposed, all the while hoping that she would say yes and saying a prayer that she would say no.
Her lips curved upward. “I see you now.”
“Si, and I would like to see more.”
With a glint to her gaze, she said, “I never forgot you. I thought at one time…” Her head tilted innocently as her lip momentarily hid behind her teeth. “Are you sure you aren’t still scared of me?”
“Angelina, I’m quite certain that I’m terrified of you.”
Her smile grew. “Bene. Then let me give you my number.”

SYNOPSIS

Six foot three. Dynamic green eyes. Utterly irresistible.

Ethan Everest stole my breath the first time I saw him. He romanced me with skill, dazzled me with his charisma, and proceeded to steal my heart right after.

I might have fallen for his easy going smile the first time we met, but I fell for him the second time.

Honey-colored hair. Cherry-kissed lips. Captivatingly gorgeous.

Singer Davis was the first, and only, woman to ever intimidate me. She spoke to my heart with her wit, seduced me with her eyes, and became the only thing that made sense in a world that made none.

I let her slip through my fingers once. I won’t make that mistake twice.

Secrets broke us apart. Can a second chance bring us back together?

Yet again S L Scott nailed it. I was so excited to read this book and couldn’t wait to dive right on in there.

Singer Davis was a green-eyed brunette with a beautiful smile. She had moved to the bright lights of New York City from a small town and lived in a small apartment with her best friend Melanie. Both girls had big dreams but living in the big city was not living up to all that they had hoped it would be.

Ethan Everest was panty-dropping, knee-weakening handsome. All the ladies loved him and he loved all the ladies, until one bad decision cost him dearly in more ways than one. Once bitten twice shy maybe? He’d first seen Singer at a social gathering where they both had mutual friends. Instantly drawn to her, an encounter on the fire escape could have changed both their lives forever. But the time wasn’t right for both of them.

One year later and Ethan finally asks her out at another social gathering. Only she’s not quite sure where she stands with him. He wants to be friends and she wants more. Ethan can be quite elusive so Singer finds it quite hard to read him. He has secrets and is worried that once she knows them all,  she will think differently of him. And that is the question we all begin to ask and wonder. Will she or won’t she ? 

That is the question that I’m not going to give you the answer to! This is the part in my review where ! tell you to read the book. Ha ha!

Singer Davis was the  character in this book that I most connected with. She was sweet, gentle and always wanting to please everyone. They were a perfect match even if both of them were not willing to admit it to each other just yet.

I really loved the outline for this story. Singer and Ethan were two characters that complimented each other. Ethan was in torment. It had been a rough year for him and only now could he see a bright future in front of him. He was lonely no more. Letting singer into his life and into his heart was the best thing he ever did. Will they both get their happy ending?

This story was well written and the story flowed throughout with ease. I have read quite a few books from this author and to be truthful, she has become one of my favourites. Her style of writing makes every book she has written a worthwhile and stimulating read. My final comment on this book involves the sport of baseball.  I loved how the author incorporated her favourite baseball team, The Houston Astros into her story line, reminding me of the time I had spent in New York City with the team staying at my hotel. (Bet you wished you was there too, huh S L Scott!). *sticks out tongue* If I could give this read more that 5 stars I surely would. So well deserved! Congratulations S L Scott. 

Excerpt

Singer

Slipping off my shoes, I dim the lights on the wall panel. I take my clothes off and hang them on a hook near the door before returning to the tub.

   The tub, warm and inviting as I step in, eases my aching feet from my high heels and the tension in my shoulders. I pour some of the bubble suds and giggle. That was so cute and showed me a whole new side to Ethan—the at-home Texan who relates to his roots—instead of the strong, quieter, broodier man I see sometimes.

   While the suds foam and the tub fills, I look out the window. The sky is clear up here. The buildings are far enough apart to avoid spying on neighbors. It’s like floating in heaven.

   I hear his knock on the door, so I call, “Come in,” while making sure the bubbles cover all the important parts.

   Ethan walks in with two glasses of champagne in one hand and the bottle in the other.

   “You came prepared,” I note, leaning back on one side of the tub.

   “I thought I might join you.” He waggles his eyebrows.

   I giggle and reach for a glass. “Come on in,” I reply and wonder if he will really take me up on my dare.

   He sets the bottle and his glass down on the side of the tub. His tie was removed before he came in and I notice his shoes are long gone, along with his jacket. When he starts on the buttons of his shirt, I sit up, scooping suds over me. “Wait, for real?”

   “Yep. I think that tub’s big enough for the two of us.”

   “But you said you don’t take baths.”

   “I also said I’ve never used this one. Seems like an opportune time.”

   “But I’m naked,” I say, worried about everything—his body naked next to mine, not shaving my legs before I went out tonight. My mind flickers through my flaws. Ugh. No. Just no. Not like that. That stuff should be shared in the dark of a bedroom under the influence of alcohol and desperate sex. We’re too sober for this. I’m too sober for this. What does he possibly see in me when he has women like Nicolina waiting?

   He’s more than I’ve imagined, and in some senses, it scares me. He’s the sort of man women like Nicolina land. For once though, it was as if she saw me as competition. The feeling is exhilarating.

   “Like I said, seems like an opportune time.”

   His shirt is dropped, his undershirt following quickly behind. Good God Almighty. What does a guy who looks like that see in me? “I see you like to work out.” I clear my throat and want to bonk my head on the side of the tub for saying it out loud.

   Chuckling, he says, “I have a gym down the hall. It’s how I relieve stress.”

   “I thought that’s what sex was for.” I gasp and cover my mouth, wishing I could keep my crazy thoughts in my head where they belong instead of on my tongue. His eyes are heavy, a smirky smirk restraining a laugh. “God, you cannot let me talk when I’m nervous.”

   “If this is what happens when you’re nervous, I’ll make you nervous more often.” His pants come down and my curiosity is answered. Tonight he’s in boxers. When he catches my eyes on his package, I’m thankful I’m wearing waterproof mascara because I immediately go underwater. Screw my makeup. It’s really the only way to keep my mouth in check at this point. I count to five and then pop back up. With my hands covering my boobs, I ask, “You’re really coming in?”

   “Yes, scoot over.”

   Good God Almighty.

BLURB

Kara

High school sweethearts. What a load of bull.

He might have been my first love, but it never meant I wanted to hear lyrics containing my name, love story, and *cringe* how I lost my virginity peddled out for the masses to digest.

Seven years later, and I’m still being haunted by his photo in every magazine, his music on every radio station. I thought breakups meant that you never had to see the person again. Especially when they ripped out your heart and made hamburger meat with it.

But when a chance encounter ends up going viral, I’m tied to him in a way I’ve always dreaded. And the last person on earth I’d want to spend an hour with, much less a lifetime, makes me an offer I can’t refuse. I might just be desperate enough to take it.

Dean

The girl in the song is real. And she’s made me a rich man.

I’ve been dedicating choruses to her for a decade, she’s the muse she never wanted to be. Off of our love, I’ve become famous … and a complete egomaniac.

When another one of my flings goes off the rails, and lands me in hot water with the media, my recording label is less than thrilled. And so comes the marching orders from my agent; devise a scheme to transform into a squeaky clean good guy.

Coming face to face with her is something I’ve only dreamed about. If not to win her back, then to at least apologize for the ways I’ve exploited her. Instead, I rope her into my madness, proposing a deal only a masochist would accept.

This was my very first book by this author, but the story line was what caught my attention as I’m a big fan of bad boy rock stars. I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. And this was a second chance at love story which I’m a big advocate of.

Kara O’Connor was living her life as best she could in the small town that she grew up in. This was not how she imagined her life would be. She thought she would be married by now to her high school sweetheart. How wrong could she have been. She thought that they were forever. She would always ask him at least once a week “Dean Jacobs will you always love me?” And  he would always reply “Until the river runs dry and the moon goes black.”

Dean Jacobs was a small town boy with big dreams, and nothing was going to get in his way. It was love at first sight when he saw her from across the other side of the cafeteria. Music was his first love and after misunderstandings on both their parts, he left her behind to seek his fame and fortune, but never once did he stop loving her.

The years roll by and the story takes us forward to where Dean has made his fortune and living the highlife in Hollywood, but things take a drastic turn after a disastrous relationship turns sour, soiling his reputation. Management agrees that he needs to find a nice girl and spin a story that he is now settling down and behaving himself. Attending the wedding of a high school friend is where these to meet up again. The hurt and bitterness is still very much alive in Kara and she cringes at the thought that the lyrics in Dean’s songs are based on her and the love they once had.

Has dean found the perfect person to help save his reputation and career in front of the media ? Will Kara stand for no nonsense? She’s no push over but he asks for help and she agrees. Will this develop into something more. Not forgetting this is a second chance romance story, will they be able to overcome the hurt and bitterness they feel, or will they reconnect and find the love again they they once shared 

I have to say when I first started this book and found out what Dean was about to do, I took an instant dislike to him. In my head I was calling him all those bad words Amazon won’t let you post, ha ha! But he soon wooed me around. He wasn’t the ***** I though he was. He really did love Kara in his own way. She came across in the book at some points as being a complete push over, but I was happy to see her come to grips with the situation and give as good as she got.

This was a story of a couple who were meant to be together but got lost along the way. Will they find there happy ending? I look forward to reading more of this authors work.

This was a new author for me, but the storyline for this book was what had caught my attention and I couldn’t wait to read it.

Sophia Jennings was a child star who had practically grown up in front of the camera. Young, beautiful and talented, her life was spiralling out of control. Being famous was not all it was cracked up to be and the pressure was beginning to take its toll.

Blake Henderson. Tall, attractive and her former protector, he’d left her when she needed him the most. The reasons why soon comes to light in this book without you having to have read the first one. 

A new threat to Sophia has recalled Blake back to her side. He wasn’t happy about it but he knew he couldn’t let her face this new threat alone. Fighting his feelings for Sophia was a battle he wasn’t going to win. After the years apart, his feelings for her were still there and has strong as ever. How could he protect her whilst fighting his inner demons and feelings for her. He thought he couldn’t do both.

Sophia was surprised to see Blake and wasn’t quite sure why he was back. After losing total control of her life and a stint in rehab, Sophia decides that her life needs to change in more ways than one. Blake takes Sophia to Wales to get her away from the life she doesn’t want to live and to keep her safe. There’s a twist in this book that you won’t see coming, so you’ll have to read it for yourselves and find out what it is. Realising that Blake and his family has family issues just as much as Sophia does makes their bond ever stronger. Will they find their happy ending? Both fighting demons that hopefully they can overcome and conquer. 

The sensitive subject of this book was handled perfectly. Addiction is not as straightforward as you think. Realising that you have an addiction and taking control of it is the first sign of recovery. The story flowed beautifully and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I look forward to reading more works from this author.

This was a new author for me, but the blurb for this book had caught my attention. Bratva and Mafia being one of my favourite genres, I couldn’t wait to delve in.

Chiara Rossi is the daughter of a Mafia boss. Beautiful and delicate with a wilful mind. Returning home from college was something she didn’t want to do, but family responsibilities had taken its toll on her family and she was asked to help. Not only to help her family, but also accept the marriage that had been arranged for her to a Mafia member who she didn’t love.

Mikhail Ivanovich, otherwise known as Misha, is tall, handsome and cocky and a member of the Russian Bratva as are his entire family. Misha came with quite a reputation as an assassin. Everyone knew his name and were scared of it; however, no-one knew what he looked like and that was the way he liked it. 

Misha’s given the job of keeping an eye on Chiara from a safe distance. Unfortunately, after taking one look at her and being instantly attracted, keeping a safe distance was not an option he was willing to take.

The chemistry between these two was instantaneous, but there was so much standing in their way. Chiara was torn between Misha and her family, especially the vulnerable members of whom needed her help and protection. Being forced into this arranged marriage was not something she wanted, and neither did Misha.

Now was the time to take action and find a way for them both to be together. It was not going to be easy but they were determined. Will Chiara and Misha get their happy ever after or will their lives be ruined by their families and responsibilities? It’s well-worth reading this book to find out and I highly recommend that you do.

I really enjoyed this book. The storyline was well-thought-out and the characters lovable. I will definitely be reading this author again and look forward to reading Dimitri’s story.

Here’s just a tease of what’s inside!

As badly as she says she wants to leave, she’s not making any moves to do so.

I step toward her, and brush my fingers through the strands of hair escaping her bun.  My fingertips stroke her neck right under her ear, and she shivers so hard I see her shoulders shake.

“Say you want me baby, and we can go upstairs right now.”

“I…”  She turns toward me, and her eyes are full of lust as she stares at my lips.  Whatever she was going to say is lost as she bites her bottom lip.  My cock twitches and grows, just at the sight of her.  I lean down to kiss her, and she steps away.  “It’s time for me to go.  Thank you for last night.”

She moves to walk away from me.  She’s going to leave me.  She thinks it’s the last time we’ll see each other, and she doesn’t even kiss me.  Why?  Doesn’t she know how I feel about her?  Doesn’t she care?

I grab her shoulders, and hold on to her as I kiss her.  I don’t let her get away.  Her mouth is hard, unyielding.  I pull her closer into my body so she can feel just how much I want her.  Her lips soften and finally part.  I need to taste her.

I need her.  Doesn’t she know?

No, she probably doesn’t, I realize.  She’s only known me for one night.  She doesn’t understand that I’ve wanted her for months.  I want her to know that I desire her, only her.  I want to build my world around her, not bring her into mine.  I want to have the normal life that neither of us were born into, and I want to share it all with her.

Melissa Silvey

Like one of her characters, Melissa doesn’t reveal much about herself at first glance. She’s shy and reserved, she’s socially awkward, and she constantly says the wrong thing at the wrong time. But if you take the time to get to know her, you’ll see she knows how to have fun! Give her a few drinks, and she’ll have you laughing and dancing in no time. In her mind, she’s the greatest dj ever, and she especially loves upbeat 80’s music. She started writing short stories and poems in elementary school, basically as soon as she picked up a pencil. When she’s not writing, and studying (the end IS near!) she enjoys watching football, hockey, and she really loves live music (live, not recorded), and she will sing off key constantly (as long as no one else is around). She’s also a huge moviephile, preferring big budget action movies. Also, she has several television shows she MUST watch, and if you interfere with her shows she will get angry! Get to know Melissa Silvey, and her characters. You might just find an awesome new friend! Contact her at masilveywrites@yahoo.com or on facebook at facebook.com/melissasilveyauthor. She hopes you enjoy her books and if you do, don’t hesitate to let her know! She’d appreciate any and all feedback!

What can I say? I was totally engrossed and read this book from front to back without stopping, not even for sleeping…ha ha! This story was light hearted, sinfully sexy and I didn’t want it to end.

Sex therapist Vaughn Lair. Yes, some of you will recognise that last name, especially most followers of the author. He is the complete package, tall, dark, sexy and a voice that will make you melt like chocolate on a hot day. The perfect voice for radio and sex.

Haven Castell is Vaughn’s  best friend and has been since college. The first time she saw him was the first time she clapped eyes on his backside. And from all accounts, what a nice backside it was! Over the years they became firm friends and eventually she became his PA, keeping him on the straight and narrow and keeping him organised.

A job offer that was hard to turn down sees Vaughn and Haven relocating to NYC. New town, the new job sees both of them making changes in their lives. What happens next between this couple is completely unexpected, leaving them of both bewildered and wondering what the hell just happened. When did their friendship change into something more. All it took was one kiss to kick start off a chain of events. Trying to understand their feelings for each other after so many years, completely freaks them both out.

This book takes you on their journey, the highs and the lows but as you progress into this book, you are left wondering if losing a friendship is worth it all. I, personally, was rooting for this couple, I wanted them to have their happy ever after. Fingers crossed!

Thank you for a most fabulous read. The storyline was perfect, the characters were lovable and most of all, you kept me captivated. The nicknames they had for each continued to make me smile. The loving was pretty good too *Wink* scorching up the airways and between the sheets was a great gift to have ! I’m a firm believer that true love will always find a way and if it is meant to be, it will be.
