CATCH UP ON THE DUET  WITH THE TWO-WEEK ARRANGEMENT

Dear Sexy AF Intern,

I know you don’t particularly care that I’m the CEO of this company, and you’re just an intern. I also know you’re not impressed by my power or my wealth, and that’s fine.

You think you’ve got me all figured out from working alongside me for two weeks, but you don’t know me. Not really.

You don’t know that I’m a single dad to twin toddlers, or that those two little girls matter more to me than this entire hotel chain.

I’m not interested in starting something deep and meaningful, but what I am interested in is the way your body reacts to mine when we’re in the same room. You probably assume the concentration on my face is work-related, when in reality, I’m figuring out which I want more–to nail you against the wall, or to bend you over my desk.

While you’re too disciplined to act on it, I’m not. And the night you stepped into my limo, all bets were off.

Jersey Six was left orphaned after a hit and run which left her living on the streets of Newark. This shattered her dreams of being any regular girl, having a diploma and going to school dances, all the girly things. She’s lived a non-existence life for eight years and then suddenly a guy calling himself Chris shows up and wants to form a friendship with her. Jersey isn’t interested in having any sort of relationship with anyone as she only has the energy to plod along as a lone ranger. However, Chris remembers the person he believes destroyed her future. They form an unlikely alliance which would seem unusual since her pent up anger…the injustice of losing her foster parents ignites feelings of vengeance. The problem is she needs to get close and sets out to destroy the world’s biggest rock star.

Jersey is a gutsy, tough young lady. Ooh boy, can she pack a punch! This poor girl has been through so much in her life that she came across as quite feral, well…that was how I envisioned her as I was reading. There are some dark elements in her past which made my heart ache. Damaged and angry, I had high hopes that things would get better but because of her determination to avenge the wrongdoings, I feared she would just keep walking into bad situations.

Chris is the guy who befriends Jersey. He’s badly disfigured due to a fire and also suffers from amnesia but slowly little pieces of his life unravel. Despite him being a bit of a mystery, the two of them are drawn together, but not in a romantic way. They snuggle and she feels protected, a totally new feeling for her. I loved their conversations; however, sometimes I worried there could possibly be a bit of manipulation there even though they seemed to be protective of each other.

Ian Cooper, the rock star. Jersey meets him by accident and soon realises he’s someone she needs to get close to if she’s going to figure out how their pasts could have possibly become unwittingly entangled. He’s easy to love, and his adoring fans and the people he works with do just that. Coop as jersey calls him, keeps his past very guarded. He’s every bit the hot star and I was instantly drawn to him. The chemistry between him and Jersey is very palpable and every sensual word oozed off the pages.

Blown away by Ms Ann’s words, this read is very different from her past works. It has darkness, mystery and sizzling chemistry with some scorching scenes. The unravelling of this story had me on the edge of my seat so-much-so that it hurt. Secrets and lies abound and when everything fell into place, I was left open-mouthed. Thrilling, entertaining and full of all kinds of drama, one of my favourite things was the playlist which accompanies the story. It fit perfectly and complemented Jersey Six very well. Long after reading, I still keep thinking of this story and listening to the playlist gives me a lump in my throat. Bravo to Ms Ann. Loved, loved everything written, even the music.

MALUM: Part 2 (The Elite King’s Club book 5) by Amo Jones is available now!

We are so excited to be sharing Amo Jones’ dark and emotional romance, Malum: Part 2 (The Elite King’s Club book 5).

Some girls don’t like pretty things.

Some girls like things that are destructive, and toxic. Things that fuel our bodies with adrenaline and bring our demons to their knees.

They say magic isn’t real, but it’s it the closest way to describe love? It doesn’t exist physically. It merely exists around us, within us, possessing our souls and making us do stupid shit. Shit like falling in love with a boy who knows how to rip my world apart and raise hell with a simple flick of his wrist. Their secrets are now mine. I’m not just in the middle of this game, I’m helping orchestrate it. Can the cries of my aching soul be enough to drown out the burning embers of my mistakes?

The mind strengthens the heart, roughing the edges to prepare it for war. This is a war I will not win.
This is a war of fate.

This review is one of the hardest to date that I have had to create. How can I ever do justice to this book and not give away any of the little titbits that this genius evil author spins?

Having read the first part of Malum, I was on tenterhooks to find out how Nate and Tillie concluded. How could they ever get past what had transpired in the previous book? Naked, alone, and bleeding in the darkness both Nate and Tillie are well underway to discovering who they really are and what they could never imagine they would do and still carry out in the name of revenge.
Tillie was left broken and in pieces struggling to comprehend what had happened. Losing her mind and her heart fragmented into splinters.

‘I understand revenge, though, probably more than Nate. I was raised in a world where people were cruel to me. It toughened my willpower to wait for the right time to strike, instead of lashing out at every person who does me wrong.’ 

When I was first asked to review Malum Part 1, I jumped at the chance of reading another dark romance, shortly thereafter I checked out this amazing author and realised to my shock that Malum was the fourth book in a series. I quickly jumped into the first three books and had consumed them in a matter of days. Three books over four days for me has been a record I haven’t broken since.
I always believed Madison to be the strong woman in this series; I couldn’t have been any more wrong if I tried. Tillie wears the crown of thorns when it comes to that title. Where Madison runs, Tillie gets up, dusts herself down and stands toe-to-toe with whatever is in front of her. Sure she is a Strupum but that only gets her so far she kicks ass and takes names all while wearing Jimmy Choos she’s my new hero for that fact alone.

‘Pain doesn’t define us, it shapes us. We come into this world as newborns, a fresh start. New life, a crisp soul. Then life happens, and every single choice you make has an implication. Every scar has a story, or it doesn’t and it’s just a scar, but whether or not it has a story, it’s still a scar, and that scar doesn’t define us, so why should pain?’ 

This author has the true gift of dragging readers in and making them feel exactly what the characters feel. My emotions flipped from one extreme to the other in a matter of mere minutes; angst, heartbreak, anger, revenge, blood lust, and total destruction.

Tillie stands larger than life within the thick of The Kings, it takes someone of strength and determination to go at it with these men and walk away intact, she sees what they hide and she knows what they need. The blackest of black grows uncontrolled in these men and she never cowers are hides from it. The scariest one of all sees her as a friend, now which took some getting used to. Heck, even Bishop shows tiny signs of being fond of her. Mysteries upon mysteries, half-truths, and secrets float around the air like stale cigarette smoke.

Nate can make any woman swoon and any man bleed, but inside he’s more broken than anyone else and bleeds more too. He lives for revenge and destroying those who took his heart. He’s simple to understand but confusing. Hard but yet soft, he’s a true enigma of the world. Hiding behind expensive cars and hoodies so that the world doesn’t see who he really is. He’ll bleed for the kings but he’ll die for who holds his heart.

‘Losing myself in all that is him. He consumed me more than anything in this world, the feeling is stronger than love. It’s stronger than hate, or pain. He smothers me and owns every single bit of who I am.’ 

There’s a big bad coming over the hill and I just hope that they’re ready for it. This series was supposed to end after the next book; however, the author has stated that there will be more books after that and for that, I could kiss her feet. These books have taken on a life of their own and dragged me into the depths of hell. Dealing with issues that seldom even have a toe dipped into their bloody waters. Amo Jones puts her people through madness and soul-shattering pain, but know one thing…they always get back up and kick the ever living daylights out of life.

There are things that women want, and things that women need.
I know deep down, with every fiber in my body, that I need Mr. Ward.

He started out as my landscape designer, but became so much more.
Now, my life is on the line while living with the devil himself. I have been torn down and broken, and I don’t think I can take anymore.

The man I need was never the one I married.
No, the man I need is the one I was never supposed to have. He’s the one who showed me gentleness, kindness, and true love.

Ward would put up a fight for me at any cost.
I know for a fact, I could be so much happier with him…

But when I come face-to-face with reality, I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to risk it all for someone I’ve just met, even if it seems like Mr. Ward and I are a match made in heaven.

PRETTY SCARS by CD Reiss is live!

Today we are so excited to be sharing PRETTY SCARS, Carrie Drazen’s long-awaited love story from New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss

Pretty Scars FOR WEB.jpg

 

Pretty Scars FOR WEB.jpgIn Carrie Drazen’s diamond-studded world, beauty is everything: a blessing, a commodity, and a curse. Her beauty got her past the velvet ropes and into New York’s high society, but it ripped her away from the man she loved and chained her to an unbearable life.

Then, in a single night, a song played by a mysterious and secretive musician carries her back to a past ripe with possibilities, when love could open any door.

Who is this anonymous performer?

How can a man she’s never met tell the story of a boy she loved with such precision?

She needs to know. But sometimes masks exist for a reason, and this unveiling could scar them both.

Carrie Drazen’s long-hoped-for emotionally evoking story is now with us. Reiss’ effortlessly read prose once again left me awe-inspired in this page-turner of a read which can be enjoyed as a stand-alone. Yes, even if you haven’t had the opportunity to read previous books in this family saga; no worries, picking up the thread from the very beginning isn’t a requisite. The female protagonist’s narrative draws the reader into her life at the drop of a hat. Her utter desperation surrounded me and when her oh-so-subtle rebellious streak broke loose, she earned my respect.

Part one which takes up nearly two-thirds of the book is Carrie’s to tell. While reading the first few chapters, the dates flipping back and forth from present to past confused me a tad and I found myself highlighting certain titles. Resolved in no time at all and fortunately having no impeding interruptions, I didn’t stop reading until I’d finished the entire book.

‘Wholeness cannot love brokenness. Beauty can only love beauty. A weak lamb loves weakly.’ 

Bright, beautiful and unpretentious, Carrie has career aspirations she’d like to fulfil. She’s the second oldest of four siblings and her father has big plans for his pretty daughter’s future. Here lies the problem; her wishes aren’t on par with his. Should I have been shocked when mother dearest had a little chit-chat with Carrie? Well, yes! Her advice left me feeling extremely frustrated, so I thanked the heavens when Carrie shared her doubts regarding what was expected of her with Margie, her older sister. Wow, I couldn’t have hoped for more from this kickass woman. Margie’s always been the troubleshooter, the one who calms turbulent waters and you’ll see how she steps in without being overpowering. And let’s face it, if you’ve read her story, you’ll get my drift.

‘Margie always knew how to get me to tell her things I wouldn’t tell anyone else.’ 

Carrie crossed paths with a musician who for me, was an enigma from the word go. My ooh my…Reiss really knocked this guy’s traits out of the park. His talent, the feelings his music instils is simply magical. Seeing as one is led to believe he’s the best of the best in his instrumental classical music field, all I wanted to do was discover why the entire feel of the story changed in an instant…and not for the better, either.

‘The air vibrated with music, trembling in his hands, under his control. The notes blossomed into grandeur with such precision they sneaked up on me, elevating my heart from tight expectation into the release of a promise kept.’ 

It felt as if an unimaginable force had literally obliterated his very being. Neither Carrie nor the reader knows what the heck happened since we’re left in a dark place. Even being led to believe in circumstantial tragedies, that nagging something just doesn’t ring true sensation didn’t leave me alone and made me try to decipher all angles like us thriller lovers do. Reiss is an expert in throwing her readers off course; she convinces, she makes us fall into a trap of supposed truths when we’re not even close.

‘No matter the instrument or what part of the world you’re in, they’re linked by a chord. That’s us.’ 

The last third of the book. Goodness, I’m quite a fast reader but here…well, it was a case of slow down or you’re going to miss out on something crucial! You may have noticed there’s no mention of the hero’s name in my review but I will say this, his attributes outweigh his failings and the title couldn’t be more fitting. Also, no word has been said about another important player because spoilers aren’t cool, are they?

‘Calling her beautiful illustrated the inadequacy of language. She was a melody. A perfect symphony. The final crescendo in a masterpiece written by a genius. 

The plot couldn’t have been more intriguing or angst-ridden. Nonetheless, I’d have liked not to have sussed out who went out of their way to stop what was eventually to be on the cards a little later than I did. My reading enjoyment wasn’t hindered in the slightest though. As a diehard fan of suspense, lapping up every word, every conniving and dastardly movement and every heartfelt moment was a joy in itself. And man, does Reiss write steaminess with a capital S or what! Pretty Scars is a superb addition to the trials, tribulations and triumphs in the Drazen family world. Bravo!

COVER REVEAL for USA Today bestselling author Nina Bocci’s all-new series, HOMELESS ROMANTICS

Today we are thrilled to be sharing these gorgeous covers for USA Today bestselling author Nina Bocci’s upcoming releases in her all-new series, HOPELESS ROMANTICS.

Check out this stunning cover for the first book in Nina Bocci’s brand new series, Hopeless Romantics. ON THE CORNER OF LOVE AND HATE is coming 20th August and pre-order is now available!

For fans of Christina Lauren and Lauren Layne comes a delightfully sassy and sexy romance about a campaign manager who reluctantly works with the local Lothario to help revamp his image for the upcoming mayoral elections, only to discover that he’s hiding something that can turn both their lives upside down.

What’s a campaign manager’s worst nightmare? A smooth-talking charmer who’s never met a scandal that he didn’t like.

When Emmanuelle Peroni’s father—and mayor of her town—asks her to help rehab Cooper Endicott’s image, she’s horrified. Cooper drives her crazy in every way possible. But he’s also her father’s protégé, and she can’t say no to him without him finding out the reason why: Cooper and her have a messy past. So Emmanuelle reluctantly launches her father’s grand plan to get this Casanova someone to settle down with and help him lose his lothario reputation.

Cooper Endicott wanted to run for Mayor, but he never wanted the drama that went with it. Now that he’s on the political hamster wheel, the other candidates are digging up everything from his past. Even though he’s doing all the right things, his colorful love life is the sticking point for many of the conservative voters. He wants to win, badly, and he knows that if he wants any chance of getting a vote from the female population, he needs to change his image. The only problem? He might just be falling in love with the one person he promised not to pursue: the Mayor’s off-limits daughter.

A perfect blend of humor and heart, On the Corner of Love and Hate is the first in a new series from USA TODAY bestselling author Nina Bocci.
