We couldn’t wait for the conclusion in the Collateral Damage Duet, and today it’s here!

DAMAGE: an Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance by USA Today bestselling author Natasha Knight is available now!


DAMAGE: Collateral Damage Duet #2 releases 15th October

We’re a match made in hell, Stefan and I.

He took me to exact his revenge. I went from being a pawn to my father to being a pawn to Stefan. The only difference is I have a ring the size of a boulder on my finger and a husband I don’t want.

And the hardest part is I thought he was different. I thought I was falling in love.

I guess my father was right. I’m not a very smart girl.

Stefan is a powerful man. He doesn’t play nice, not if you’re his enemy. But I’ve learned one thing about my husband.

He takes care of what’s his.

And I am his.

His enemies have become my enemies, but he’ll never let anyone hurt me. He’s fiercely protective. It’s the predator inside that scares me.

This is the continuation of Gabriela and Stefan’s story and starts where Collateral ended.

Stefan is still domineering, commands attention and sexy as hell. Gabriela is still determined and defiant. Wow, what an impact that the first chapter was. Again I’m hooked on this marvellous story by Natasha Knight.

Gabriela plans to escape, take an unexpected turn. Awash with fear and in pain, she finds herself in darkness, scared at what is to become of her. Stefan is out of his mind. Someone has taken what is his and they will not be getting away with it. The rage inside him is burning fierce. The hatred he feels for her and her father is slowly changing. He still hates her father, but the feelings he has for Gabriela are leaving him confused.

Scared is not the word, Gabriela is petrified. She’s going to die. How will she survive this? Is this Stefan’s doing or her father’s? So many questions and no answers. Stefan is powerful and the head of the family. He has many enemies and any one of them could be behind this.

The dynamics between this couple was explosive. They fed off each other. She gave as good as she got and he gave it right back. Neither one was backing down and this is what made this book an exciting read.

This book packed a punch. It’s the perfect conclusion to this enemies-to-lovers dark intense Mafia story, but will your questions eventually be answered? And the twist comes as a surprise, or does it? I always knew there was something shady with about character. Have I piqued your interest yet?

I’m not giving too much away because I want you to read it. You need to read it! The author included so much in this story of love, suspense and betrayal. It’s well written and the story flowed throughout.

It will be interesting to see if any other characters from this book get their own story. Congratulations to the author. You’ve become one of my favs. Five well-deserved stars.

It’s midnight when we’re back at the house and I carry her to my room. She doesn’t resist when I strip off her clothes, her underthings still damp, and put her in the shower under a flow of hot water. I strip too and step in beside her and there’s no resistance when I kiss her. When I take her in my arms and kiss her as the water washes sea salt from us.She opens to me and I cup the back of her head. I don’t ever want to stop kissing her. Don’t ever want to stop holding her like this.When the water begins to cool, I switch off the shower and dry her then myself before lifting her up and carrying her to my bed. I lay her down and lie down beside her, shifting so I’m on top of her but keeping most of my weight on my forearms so I don’t crush her.

I slide one hand down and cup the mound of her breast. I run my fingernail over her nipple, and she moans into my mouth. When I pull away, it’s to look at her.

She licks her lips, reaches up to touch my cheek, slides her hand down to my chest and sets it against my heart.

We don’t talk. We don’t say a single word. Not for a long while. We just kiss and kiss and look at each other. And I can’t get enough of touching her. Tasting her. Can’t get close enough to her.

“Christ, Gabriela,” I start. “I want you.” I roll off her and onto my side to slide my hand down over her belly.

She cups my cheek, touches her mouth to mine. “Kiss me again.”

I do.

Gabriela

Stefan Sabbioni showed up uninvited in my bedroom on my sixteenth birthday. He stood in the shadows smelling of whiskey and death and wrapped a broken, blood-crusted necklace around my neck. I thought he’d strangle me with it.

That night, he left a message for my father. He said he’d be back to take something precious.

I never delivered that message, though. I wonder if things would be different if I had because now, two years later, he’s back. And he’s not hiding in any shadows.

He’s come to make good on his promise.

He’s back to take that something precious.

Me.

Stefan

Marchese is the manipulator of my family’s tragedy. I won’t just bring him to his knees. I’ll bury him for what he did.

Taking his daughter is only the beginning. I’ll do it knowing I’m starting a war. I’ll do it knowing my enemies will become his allies. They’ll stop at nothing to destroy me and he’ll stop at nothing to get her back.

I’ve never shied away from war, though. I’m not one to play nice and I don’t share my toys. I’ll demolish you if you touch what’s mine.

And she is most definitely mine.

A single mom of twins, Jenna is more than capable of taking care of Nathan’s adorable two-year-old and wants to help Nathan however she can.

Falling in love forces Nathan to face his biggest fear, and when hearts — both big and little — are on the line, the only thing scarier than needing Jenna and her kids so much is losing them all.

DREAMS OF 18 by Saffron A. Kent is LIVE!

Today we are delighted to be bringing you USA Today bestselling author Saffron A. Kent’s all-new contemporary romance, DREAMS OF 18 


“You don’t go around kissing your best friend’s dad, do you?
Even though that’s all you ever dream about.”

Violet Moore is in love with a man who hates her.

Well, to be fair, she kinda deserves it.

On her eighteenth birthday, she got drunk and threw herself at him, causing the biggest scandal of their sleepy suburban town.

Now, everyone thinks she’s a slut and he has disappeared. Rumor has it that he’s been living up in the mountains of Colorado, all alone and in isolation.

But Violet is going to make it right.

She’s going to find him and bring him back.

No matter how cruel and mean he is. Or how much he hurts her with his cold-hearted and abrasive ways, she won’t give up.

And neither will she think about his tempting lips or his sculpted muscles or his strong hands. The hands that she wants on her body, touching her, feeling her skin…

The hands that make her want to forget everything and kiss Graham Edwards – Mr. Edwards, actually — again.

Because you don’t go around kissing your best friend’s dad, do you?

Even though that’s all you ever dream about.

Violet Moore is an eighteen-year-old who finds herself in a situation that causes all sorts of trouble. She kisses her best friend’s dad. It happens to be her birthday and she’s drunk. This causes the mother of all scandals. The guy in question is 18 years older and also the football coach at their local school in a sleepy town in Connecticut. She’s in love with him and he hates her.

Violet is deemed the town slut and when Graham Edwards disappears into exile in the mountains of Colorado, she wants to put the mistake right and sets about finding him. Mr Edwards has a tough exterior and Violet won’t be deterred by his rude, cold-hearted behaviour. She tries to push aside the alluring man with his muscles and his strong hands touching her all over, or his lips that she has already touched. Silly girl from the moment she saw Mr Edwards, she’s always dreamed about him touching her and kissing to forget.

The reader will learn early on that poor Violet doesn’t see herself as a normal teenager. She has so many hangups due to her rough start in life. It’s almost like she is invisible. Violet loves to write in her journal and eat her lollipops. Graham Edwards lives for his son Brian; in fact, he moved them to Connecticut for a better future for his son. Graham has had tough times in his younger years and he strives for his son to not experience what he has.

Oh my god, I absolutely love the forbidden story and I really was chomping at the bit to discover the fallout from the kiss between Violet and Mr Edwards. What looks to have destroyed their lives in a split second made me wonder where the rest of their journey would take them. Chapter to chapter unfolded a deep meaning to their story.

Nothing was always as it seemed as there were so many layers to the protagonists. The supporting characters were all great and my goodness me, I wanted to throttle Violet’s family at times. Also, I loved that we got to see some past characters from previous workings which made me smile and gave a small fraction of insight of where they were at with their lives. It was a very nice touch on Ms Kent’s part.

When we got to the steamy parts, they weren’t just steam, they were damn right filthy. Who doesn’t love a dirty talker with some seriously filthy situations that make a girl blush? I liked Violet and her maturity. At times I felt she could have been immature, but having read right to the end was when I realised it was all down to her vulnerability.

The penmanship and the author’s ability to tell a tale with such intricate description is nothing less than perfect; however, at times there was a bit of repetition which was overlooked as I delved deeper into the story. We also get a fantastic musical accompaniment which is in two playlists. One of which Violet titled her kickass playlist and the other is Graham and Violet’s. I’ve enjoyed listening to them and using the tracks to visualize moments in their story. I highly recommend you pick up this book and keep an open mind. Dig deep and you will have an enjoyable journey.

A LIE FOR A LIE by Helena Hunting is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting’s all-new romantic comedy about instant attraction, second chances and not-so-little white lies,
A LIE FOR A LIE

Hunting-A Lie for a Lie-28155-CV-FT.jpg


Hunting-A Lie for a Lie-28155-CV-FT.jpgSometimes I need an escape from the demands, the puck bunnies, and the notoriety that come with being an NHL team captain. I just want to be a normal guy for a few weeks. So when I leave Chicago for some peace and quiet, the last thing I expect is for a gorgeous woman to literally fall into my lap on a flight to Alaska. Even better, she has absolutely no idea who I am.

Sometimes I need an escape from the demands, the puck bunnies, and the notoriety that come with being an NHL team captain. I just want to be a normal guy for a few weeks.

Even better, she has absolutely no idea who I am.

Lainey is the perfect escape from my life. My plan for seclusion becomes a monthlong sex fest punctuated with domestic bliss. But it ends just as abruptly as it began. When I’m called away on a family emergency, I realize too late that I have no way to contact Lainey.

A year later, a chance encounter throws Lainey and me together again. But I still have a lie hanging over my head, and Lainey’s keeping secrets of her own. With more than lust at stake, the truth may be our game changer.

Wow, this book titillates the reader in all the right places! I tried putting Hunting’s latest offering down at daft o’clock but to no avail ‘cause it’s far, far too addictive. And although it’s a romantic comedy, the author’s take on a delicate subject gave the story such a sensitive touch it got me sniffling into my pillow more than once. Hunting’s gone back to ice hockey with this stand-alone spinoff from the highly popular Pucked Series which also happens to be a sport I adore. A Lie for a Lie is a marvellous read in the respect that most of the characters are lovely, relatable and makes you want to be with them.

“Thank you for being my personal support person and human teddy bear.”

Chapter one and we’re in the now, RJ crossing paths with the gorgeous and timid Lainey. He picks up on her intense discomfort, calms her down and is so understanding, my heart melted. Ahh, but not being entirely frank with her could just come back and bite him where it hurts the most. Hmm…where could that be you may ask! I loved the way Hunting set the foundation of the plot so quickly, had me on edge and provoked all the feels at a page-turning pace.

‘There were a lot of women in a very short span of time. Sometimes more than one at a time. It was bad. I’m not proud.’

Well-known as a lady’s man, RJ’s got it all. NHL team captain, his drop-dead gorgeous looks attract the puck bunnies like bees to a honeypot. Not happy with the way he’s been running his personal life, he wants to escape their advances and be that normal kinda guy for a while. I really and truly liked RJ. Obviously well off, he never flaunts it. His teammates respect him, he gets on with their women, loves their kids and has a fabulous rapport with his siblings. In fact, I couldn’t find fault with him yet when he doesn’t come clean with Lainey, I could have strangled him.

“…And even if she’s willing to talk to me, once she realizes what else I left out she’ll probably never want to speak to me again.”

Lainey won be over at the drop of a hat. Her contrasting traits which funnily enough don’t clash, are so well-described that I ended up rooting for her throughout the read. To begin with, she comes across as quite nerdy. Her love of marine life is the reason she’s taken a trip to Alaska but she never expected her time there would evolve as it did. Everything goes wrong only to be righted. However, what would happen leaves confusion in its wake. Even though she’s shy, she’d learnt to trust RJ and thought he had the same feelings for her as she had for him. Indeed, Hunting gave the story a powerful edge with all the goings-on and in the process, my attention didn’t waver for a minute.

“My respect for you just went up a few notches. I had no idea you were into the nerdy chicks.”
“She’s not nerdy,”

Although the book isn’t split into two parts, there’s definitely a before and after-feel about it. The after hit me just as strongly since everything comes pouring out. And believe you me, I wasn’t the only person who was left stunned, shocked, even dazzled! I can’t say anything regarding the outcome of them finding each other again but wow, Hunting most certainly nipped it in the bud with her brilliant story-telling.

Despite the team camaraderie and family ambience bowling me over, I had very mixed feelings for Lainley’s parents and saluted her when she stood up for herself. The title also gave me food for thought and I’d love you to decide for yourselves if not being honest can be considered a lie. In this case, distorting the truth and letting it slide was a lot easier than finding that perfect moment to confess. Of course, the big question here is will they forgive each other. I can’t tell you how much I loved RJ and Lainey’s story overflowing with tenderness, surprises and plenty of smiles. Bravo Hunting!

GETTING PLAYED by Emma Chase is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be bringing you New York Times bestselling author Emma Chase’s all-new contemporary romance stand-alone in the Getting Some duet, GETTING PLAYED


Dean Walker is all about keeping life simple. He’s effortlessly talented and intelligent-spending his summers playing drums in the local band and the rest of the year teaching high school in the same Jersey town where he grew up. He likes his love life simple too, enjoying the commitment-free hook-ups his good looks and sexy charm have always made oh-so-easy.

Then he meets Lainey Burrows. And his simple, easy life gets turned upside down.

One wild one-night stand was all it was ever supposed to be, so Lainey is shocked when she discovers that her sizzling summer fling is also her son’s new math teacher. What ensues is an addictive, insatiable, sweet romance that won’t be simple, but it will be more than worth the fight.

Ten per cent into the book and the pages were already heating up. It certainly felt like Chase had done a reversal by not holding back on the steaminess when actually, this couldn’t be further from the truth. You’ll know what I mean when you dive into Getting Played, but one thing’s for sure, she managed to get this reader hot and bothered pretty darn quick. Something that’d slipped my mind is that Chase’s bedroom scenes are magnificent. Not sure if I should use this adjective but they simply are. And I could have kicked myself for not having caught up with her books, especially Getting Schooled. Although it’s the first book in the Getting Some duet, I never felt I’d missed out.

‘Dean’s body is a wonderland, and I explore every bit of it. And he plays me like an instrument.’

Now then, apart from seriously contemplating grabbing a fan, my next impression was that there’s so much more to this contemporary romance than meets the eye. I wasn’t wrong. Chase writes with an immense amount of flair, capturing my attention from beginning to end. Bit of advice here; I started the book at daft o’clock which wasn’t such a good idea. Apart from the sleep deficit, trying not to disturb my better half while reading in bed wasn’t easy, either.

“I have this theory, it’s stupid. Life is full of surprises — good and bad. And this one. . . ”

Oops, Dean Walker forgot to ask for her phone number while on a summer tour with his band! Back in Lakeside, his other love is teaching and boy, would I have liked to have a maths teacher like him! He’s really good at what he does and gives his students confidence, even lets them ask personal questions if they earn the privilege. Cheeky monkeys! They don’t hold back once they get going.

“You can ask anything — that’s the whole point. Hit me.”

Yet observing him deliberate over that one night he’d spent with the woman who left without much ado had me grinning from ear to ear. It’s always been the other way round and he can’t quite get around that fact or stop thinking about her. Hmm…just maybe she’s the one who got away, but there’s nothing he can do about it. So, is he a tad big-headed? Well, yes and I was pretty pleased his ego was brought down a notch or two.

‘It happens. When you’re good looking, naturally charming teacher, student crushes come with the territory.’

Lifestyle blogger extraordinaire, Lainey Burrows has an opportunity of a lifetime, doing up a run-down house in Lakeside. Her followers will be in for a treat ‘cause she’s about to show them how to save a penny or two, recycle and watch her refurbishing it. Single mum to a lad who’s older than his years and super intelligent, the poor chap never really fitted in but he does here. His school mates are cool and guess what, his teacher even cooler! Lainey is adorable. Her future pretensions regarding relationships made me kinda sad though. So when the unthinkable happens, her ‘let’s get on with it attitude’ and make the most of a situation she’d never envisaged being in, literally bowled me over.

“You know you’re, like, the best kid ever right?”
“I do okay.”

Please, please don’t read the blurb. I went in blind and it really paid off. The surprise is a game-changer for Dean, no pun intended, and if I’d been swooning over him before, he’s now left me in a right blubberin’ mess! Chase has made her characters come alive in a love story where the dialogue flows with no boundaries, perfect banter in realistic surroundings and romance….this is it! I loved the secondary characters, the family feel-good take on the story is blinkin’ marvellous, and the emotions…WOW! My recommendation. Read it. Bravo Chase and thanks for the Star Wars mention. That tickled me pink!

“Boba Fett didn’t say that.”
“No?”
“The actual quote is ‘He’s no good to me dead.’ ‘Cause he was, you know, talking about Han Solo.”

I was looking forward to reading this author’s work as I have never read any of her books before. The first of a trilogy, this is a story of two interesting but imperfect characters from eminent families.

Elizabeth is the only daughter of a wealthy and prominent businessman with political ambitions to the highest office. With her pedigree, you’d think she is the typical princess but is exactly the opposite. In her father’s eyes, she is lacking in qualities that make her the perfect daughter. She has daddy issues and is always striving to get his approval.

Carter is a musical prodigy and comes from a loving family background but he has serious issues and has fallen out of grace from the public. He needs to redeem himself and is struggling to win back their trust.

The first chapter begins as a flashback to Carter and Beth’s first meeting when the author introduces us to their families. Beth’s father rules the small Texan town of Winsome. She craves for her father’s love but he only sees her as a commodity and a pawn for his quest to achieve political fame. Carter is considered the “odd” one in his famous reality TV family, he is a much-loved member but spirals downhill when he finds out about a secret.

Whilst I found the storyline riveting, there is something about Beth that kept me from connecting with her character. She is a naive twenty-one-year-old girl and her bad decisions annoyed the heck out of me. She is definitely not the perfect heroine, but I do hope that in book two she develops that much-needed backbone. The Machiavellian antagonist in this tale is intriguing in such a way that I wonder how the author can make this character possibly even eviler in the follow-up book. Let’s wait and see!

The attraction between Carter and Beth is undeniable right from the start but the turn of events that happen after their first meeting keeps them apart for most of the book’s timeline. Of course, we are all rooting for these two lovers to reunite and although the plot twist in the last chapter is somewhat predictable, I can’t wait to read the next installment. The characters in this saga are flawed but that doesn’t make their story less fascinating. Thank goodness I don’t have to wait too long for the next one as I am dying to find out how Beth and Carter’s story pans out.
