About Skirt Chaser:

Love gets filthy in this new erotic romance by USA Today bestselling author, Stacey Kennedy.

Greyson Crawford works hard by day and plays even harder at night. And he understands and obeys the rules of the game. One, don’t mix business and pleasure. Two, employees are off-limits. So, he’s been eagerly counting down the days until interior designer, Evie Richards is no longer under contract with his Seattle architecture firm. But when that day comes, he realizes there are more obstacles in his way. The biggest…Evie herself.

Until Evie gets asked to be the maid-of-honor in her best friend’s destination wedding, and Evie needs a date. The circumstances are perfect for Greyson to set his plan of seduction into motion. He will happily play the boyfriend for the weeklong wedding event, if Evie will surrender to his every command and play in his bed.

For Evie, it’s all fun and games until Greyson’s first touch; then she begins to question what’s real. She knows better than to fall for a guy like Greyson—a skirt chasing ladies’ man—but with every slow caress and kinky adventure, she realizes that Greyson knows what he wants, and it isn’t just her body surrendering to him…it’s her heart.

Review: Romancing the Bachelor by Diane Alberts

VT-RomancingtheBachelor-DAlberts_FINAL

I am excited to be part of the tour for Romancing the Bachelor by Diane Alberts. This is the first book I have read by her and I just thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.

TastyToursReview

Eric Hamilton is struck dumb in the courtroom when he notices the court reporter. He wants to know her name immediately because he has big plans for this beautiful woman. Unfortunately for him, Shelby Jefferson has seen Eric’s love ’em and leave ’em behavior for the past six months so she is not falling for it. Shelby has been working in the courts with Eric for six months and if that isn’t the worst thing, they also happened to be living in the same apartment complex and he has never said one thing to her before. Suddenly, a shorter skirt and her hair down means he is ready to notice her. Shelby isn’t having any of it.

But Eric is persistent. The more he gets to know Shelby, the more he just plain likes her. She is funny, blunt, smart, and not at all afraid to put him in his place. But Shelby wants no part of even dating Eric. She has plans to get out of Atlanta. She is searching for a new job in any small town willing to hire her. After moving to Atlanta for a guy, and getting her heartbroken and being left broke and down on her luck, Shelby is all about making her own future and that future she wants is not in Atlanta. For Eric, this is tough because he wants to make partner at his law firm. But he also really, really likes Shelby and though he is hesitant to use the R word (RELATIONSHIP!), he is starting to think the potential for something between them is too strong to resist.

Diane Alberts really charmed me with Romancing the Bachelor. I loved the chemistry between Eric and Shelby. I also really liked that Shelby wasn’t going to put up with any guff from Eric. She’s seen his playbook play out as it were and she is not impressed (or so she tells herself). But the more she gets to know him, past the facade of the playboy lawyer, the more she realizes that Eric is worth fighting for and that frightens her. She does not want to become dependent on a man again, not for her happiness or comfort. And I can definitely understand Shelby’s feelings on this topic but I was really hoping she would realize that maybe she could have the best of both worlds: Eric and her independent spirit.

I appreciated that these two did not change their minds on their perspective futures overnight. Eric especially took some time because he never really thought he wanted to be part of a long-lasting relationship. I’m glad he came to his senses! I really appreciated the big gesture at the end to prove to Shelby that she is what he wants more than anything in the world.

Romancing the Bachelor is a fun and sparkling romance story. Eric and Shelby had some walls to break down to make their new relationship a go, but it was well worth it. Diane Alberts definitely has written a super sweet romance perfect for any fan of the genre!

Eric Hamilton isn’t looking for love. Hell, he isn’t even looking for a girl. He has a five-year plan, and he’s one hundred percent focused on that. But then Shelby walks into his life, and suddenly, he can’t think about anything else. Unfortunately for him, she hates his guts, and wants nothing to do with him. But he’s a man who loves a challenge.

Shelby Jefferson can’t wait to get out of the city, and back to her country roots. She moved to Atlanta for a guy who promptly left her, and the last thing she wants is to fall for another man who might make her want to stay. But Eric is nothing if not persistent, and before long she’s inside his arms, in his bed, and she’s falling for him. Hard. But when history repeats itself, and she has to choose between a man and herself––again.

Release Day Blitz: Plus One by Aleatha Romig

Plus One by Aleatha Romig

PLUS ONE
By Aleatha Romig
Release Day: May 16th

A fun, sexy new stand-alone from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

He’s sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there’s the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big…well, we’ve all heard the rumors, the ones that say he’s up for any challenge.

But I can’t see him that way. He’s my boss—technically one of the owners of the company where I work—and definitely not in my league. Men like him don’t notice women like me, and they don’t date them.

And I don’t date men like him.

Until that one time that I catch him in a compromising position when I’m also in need of a last-minute date for a wedding…and then it’s not real. It’s blackmail.

For one weekend, he’s my plus-one.

Beautiful and unobtainable.

From the moment she walked into my office with those stunning blue eyes and crazy sensual curves, she’s been on my mind. Three years and never once has she acted interested in me. Usually I flash a million-dollar smile and women fall to their knees, some literally.

Not her.

Then on the occasion that I agree to let another woman do that—fall to her knees—guess who happens to catch us?

It may not be the most conventional way to get on her radar, but I didn’t get this far in business without knowing when to seize an opportunity. If this sexy little firecracker with perfectly kissable lips thinks she can blackmail me into attending her cousin’s wedding, I’m going to jump at the chance to be her plus-one.

You love her darker side. Now it’s time to meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha, as she trades her renowned twists and turns for laughs and love with this sexy new stand-alone romance, PLUS ONE.

Chapter 1

I push the thought of my mother’s call away and concentrate on my friend, Shana. As I do, the slippery napkin escapes my hold. Quickly, I slide from my seat to retrieve it.

“Excuse me,” a deep voice says as black leather loafers stop precariously close to where I’m now kneeling to rescue my napkin.

Seeing the shoes, I look up and suck in a deep breath.

Towering above me are long legs covered in tailored trousers. As I follow them up, they lead to a trim waist, a black belt, and a white shirt that buttons over a broad chest. I barely swallow the lump in my throat as I recognize the wide shoulders covered with the matching suit jacket. Seizing the napkin, I stand, suddenly face to face with one of the owners of the company where I work.

My face burns with embarrassment as his shimmering green eyes narrow and head tilts. Inches away from me is one of the handsomest men I’ve ever met. He should be on the cover of GQ, not gracing the halls of Buchanan and Willis.

His firm lips form a tight smirk and cheeks rise in amusement. “Miss Jones.”

Staring into the sea of emerald, I try to pretend I wasn’t just on my knees in a chic restaurant in front of Duncan Willis.

“Mr. Willis,” I respond, my voice cracking. Nervously I take a step backward. As if the moment weren’t awkward enough, I wobble, teetering precariously on my high heels.

Swiftly, he reaches out, grabs my elbow, and steadies my footing. Though he just saved me from making an even bigger fool out of myself by falling face-first into what I can only imagine is a hard, defined chest, my mind is suddenly consumed with the electricity of his touch. The energy heats my skin as his grasp lingers.

Review: Tempting Her Neighbor by Laura Jardine

Tempting Her Neighbor by Laura JardineTempting Her Neighbor is a sweet and sexy new novella from Laura Jardine. Rachel Malone has lived in the super small town of Georgeville all her life. She has dreamed of moving away but admits to herself she is a bit scared. There is a small comfort to being around the people she has known all her life. Unfortunately, one of the main downsides to that is that is definitely hard to meet a man. When Rachel gets a new neighbor, she sees her chance to have a hot fling before she leaves town.

Cole moved to Georgeville to escape big city life. He wants to be left alone to his curmudgeonly ways. With Rachel as his neighbor however, he is very distracted. She is friendly and sweet to him, bringing him a lasagna and offering more than food too. Cole hasn’t had much luck with women and he really does not want Rachel to fall for him because he just wants to be left alone. Their attraction is strong though and soon they are spending more and more time in bed together and it feels good to both of them. But something this good cannot last forever, especially when Rachel is finally ready to take the chance and leave her small town behind forever.

I really, really liked Rachel. She is sweet and just a nice all around woman. And oh yeah, she happens to really enjoy sex, which, in a small town has gotten her a bad reputation. She does not like hearing men talk about her behind her back. Like any woman, it just does not feel good. I appreciated her honesty with Cole in the fact that she was just looking for a fling.

Of course, like any romance story, a fling is easier said than done. Cole falls pretty hard for Rachel, really quickly. It’s kind of an insta-love situation but I really appreciated that Cole embraced the fact that he was in love. He was not expecting it by any means but he is ready go all out with his new feelings.

Tempting Her Neighbor is definitely more of a novella than a full story so the pace of the story is quick, quick, quick. Rachel and Cole meet, they fall into bed, and soon enough they are examining their feelings. Laura Jardine gives the story enough emotional heft that, for me, I was able to believe into their new found feelings together. Additionally, I liked the time jump at the end. It fit their characters without it being a totally perfect happy ever after quite yet. After all, these two are still getting to know each other in many ways.

Laura Jardine is a new-to-me author but I’m excited to give her another chance. Tempting Her Neighbor features a woman who embraces and enjoys her sexuality. That is a character I can get behind!

Review: Pipe Dreams by Sarina Bowen

Pipe Dreams by Sarina Bowen

Brooklyn Bruisers #3

The Brooklyn Bruisers hockey series by Sarina Bowen is turning out to be, well, so far it’s mostly a hat trick for me! Each book keeps getting better and better. I was super excited for Mike and Lauren’s story because I really liked the excerpt at the back of the previous book (Brooklyn Bruisers #2 Hard Hitter). And the rest of the book definitely lived up to that excerpt for me.

Lauren and goalie Mike Beacon had a very serious relationship. They started off as friends when Lauren started working in the office of the Brooklyn Bruisers. That friendship was filled with longing until it finally exploded with passion. Mike leaves his wife after discovering she cheated on him. He plans on a divorce, tough as it may be. But then life throws him a major, major curveball with his wife’s health. Needless to say, Mike had to make some very tough decisions on short notice and that meant ending his relationship with Lauren.

Does he tell her this when it ends though? Well, if you’re thinking no, you’re right. One day they are planning to move in together, the next, Lauren is devastated. And now that the Brooklyn Bruisers are in the Stanley Cup play-offs, she is forced to be around Mike once again since the team owner’s usual assistant is suffering from a head injury. Lauren is not thrilled at all.

Mike however sees this as a chance to set things right with Lauren. But, like most men, he doesn’t quite realize just how difficult that will be. Lauren is almost done with college. She is a business woman to be reckoned with and her current boss, and Brooklyn Bruisers team owner, Nate, realizes this. He wants her to shine in his organization and put her new skills to use. I really loved seeing Lauren thrive as a professional. She has been working hard to build a career for herself and it is obvious she is respected at Nate’s organization, even if she is a bit abrupt with her coworkers sometimes. Lauren has a hard shell protecting herself, with good reason.

That being said, I really enjoyed seeing Mike put himself out there to woo Lauren back. He has big dreams of a happily-ever-after with her, FINALLY, and he is not going to sit back any longer. Seeing her again, traveling with her for games, he is reminded of one of the most painful decisions of his life, but also, that maybe he is being granted a second chance. Mike is not looking this gift horse in the mouth.

Mike is actually just an all-around nice guy. He is a single father now to a thirteen-year-old. He makes every effort to be part of her life and have her be part of his. But now he is ready to make some changes. Lauren is hesitant to let him back in again but I felt like she soon realized the reward was far greater than the risk. That being said, I really liked that she didn’t just jump at the second chance. Lauren knew a happy ending isn’t guaranteed but Mike manages to show her that this time around, nothing will stand in their way.

Couple this great romance with a great hockey team and it’s just a win-win all around. Sarina Bowen continues to write male characters and friendships that shine. There is camaraderie but there are of course quite a few scenes of the guys razzing on each other.

Pipe Dreams also lays out a few clues for Nate and Becca’s potential romance (I hope anyway!). It certainly whets the appetite for their story.

Pipe Dreams satisfies big time. This is my favorite of the series so far and I feel like everything really connected. The hockey scenes, the romance, the characters, it all felt cohesive and well done. Though there are quite a few secondary characters in this book (from the previous installments), I feel Lauren and Mike’s story shines through it all and provides a satisfying and deeply powerful romance. Any reader can pick this book up and fall in love with their story, whether they are new to the Brooklyn Bruisers team or not.

Pipe Dreams is available May 2!
