Synopsis:

Chloe

I know I shouldn’t covet my sister’s ex-boyfriend.

She may have wanted nothing to do with his BDSM lifestyle, but I’m a born submissive. And the only place I want to be is under Simon’s command.

But he won’t go near me. Not with the memory of her so close.

That leaves me no choice. If he won’t touch me when he knows who I am, I’ll have to come to him in disguise.

He’s worth the risk. I’m meant to be his. Now I just have to prove it to him.

Simon

Being a Dominant cost me my first love, but I can’t deny who I am. I won’t. Control and power are everything, and the way I keep mine is by playing only with experienced subs. No exceptions.

Until I met her.

She wore a mask, but I knew the moment our lips touched she was meant to belong to me. Young, new to the world of BDSM—I knew training her would be a risk.

I didn’t know it would destroy me.

Black Tie Optional (A Wild Wedding Novel) by Ann Marie Walker Blog Tour + Review + Author Review + Giveaway

The Proposal meets Two Weeks
Notice
 in Ann Marie Walker’s 

new standalone romantic comedy, Black
Tie Optional!

 

BLACK TIE OPTIONAL
Wild Wedding #1
Ann Marie Walker
Releasing May 30, 2017
St. Martin’s Press

 

 

synopsis

The Proposal meets Two Weeks Notice in Ann Marie Walker’s new standalone romantic comedy, Black Tie Optional, which New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst calls, “a fun, sexy romp that will keep every reader entertained!”

Everything about Coleman Grant III oozes power and sex. And not the perfunctory kind either, but the sheet clawing, heart stopping, gasping for air after you’ve screamed so loud you can’t breathe kind. From his dark wavy hair that stands in an artfully rumpled mess, to the blue eyes that sear your skin, to his full, sensual lips – on the surface he’s pure perfection.

Too bad he’s an asshole. An arrogant, uptight corporate raider hell bent on destroying the environment one species at a time.

Everything about Olivia Ramsey screams hippie humanitarian. From her blond hair tied in a sloppy bun, to her faded jeans with the Bonnaroo patch sewn on the thigh, to her combat boots still splattered with mud from the previous day’s site visit.

So it makes perfect sense that they would get married. In Vegas. Stone-cold sober.Cole needs a wife. Olivia needs to save an endangered species. But what starts as a marriage of convenience soon turns into a battle of wills and sexual tension. Love is a game, and Olivia and Cole are ready to win.

Bride Teaser
christie-review
5-star-a

OMG!!! I adored, adored this book! It was a 5 + star book for me. Coleman Grant III and Olivia Ramsey are COMPLETE OPPOSITES! He’s represents capitalism and corporation, and she is an environmentalist, but together seem to work. They are the epitome of the saying, “opposites attract.”

Cole goes to the same coffee shop each morning before work, and like clockwork, Olivia is waiting for him, with posters in hand, to confront him every single morning that his corporation is hurting an endangered species of bat. Of course, he does not take her seriously. The banter between the two of them is hilarious. Each seem to despise the other, but somehow that hatred has turned into a primal lust! When the two meet up by sheer coincidence at a wedding in Vegas, they spend an unforgettable night together.

 

“At first, he’d found her to be nothing more than an annoyance, an almost amusing distraction to his morning routine. That quickly changed thanks to her relentless nature and escalating tactics; but while his contempt for the smart-mouthed activist had grown over time, somehow it also morphed into a twister form of attraction, an all-consuming lust that ran just below the surface of hate.”

 

You might think it would end in a walk of shame…nope, it ends in a marriage proposal. No, they aren’t drunk…they are quite sober. He needs to marry her to save his company, and she agrees to marry him in exchange for his financially backing her conservation effort for saving the endangered bat she is trying to save. Only three months. Not hard, right? Not where these two are concerned. They don’t know whether to kill each other or give into their lust for one another.

I love it when two headstrong characters fall for each other, when they lose their self-control. Cole and Olivia are very much obstinate and in control. I loved watching these two fall in love. I could easily see it happening, but those two would never admit it until it was staring them right in their faces, and they couldn’t deny it anymore. They annoy the crap out of each other, but they also challenge the other and begin to re-think their initial judgements of one another. It’s truly a sexy, sweet romance that will leave you with a big smile on your face.

I have again found a new writer that has raced to the top of my favorite authors. I will definitely be reading more by Anne Marie Walker. The icing on the cake is the special preview of her next book in the series, ironically, Icing on the Cake.

abou-the-author

 

Ann Marie Walker writes steamy books about sexy boys. She’s a fan of fancy cocktails, anything chocolate, and 80s rom-coms. Her super power is connecting any situation to an episode of Friends and she thinks all coffee cups should be the size of a bowl. If it’s December she can be found watching Love Actually but the rest of the year you can find her at AnnMarieWalker.com where she would be happy to talk to you about alpha males, lemon drop martinis or supermodel David Gandy. Ann Marie attended the University of Notre Dame and currently lives in Chicago.

 

 

author-interview

Tasty Q&A with Ann Marie Walker

 

Favorite writing place

Honestly it varies from book to book, but Black Tie Optional was written almost exclusively at the corner table of my local Starbucks and I have the gold star rewards to prove it haha.

If they could sit and write in a different country where would it be? 

I’ve had the chance to visit the UK recently and as a result am thinking of basing my next series there. Maybe it’s my love of Hugh Grant rom-coms, but after a few days in Notting Hill, the ideas were flying!

Co-writing have you done it with another author, if not, would you?

The first series I wrote, Chasing Fire, was co-authored with Amy K. Rogers. It was a wonderfully collaborative process but we always knew I would write solo as well (hence publishing under both our names versus one pen name) due to Amy’s demanding “day job”.

Name three things on your desk right now.

Coffee mug (a necessity), cell phone (a distraction), and a frame with a print of the first fan art someone ever made based on one of my books (a reminder).

What are you favorite types of stories to read?

Romances, especially ones with humor. I remember reading Beautiful Player at the hair salon and I literally laughed out loud. It was such an amazing feeling, which is why I couldn’t have been happier when Library Journal used that exact phrase to describe Black Tie Optional.

Can you tell us about your upcoming book?

The second book of the Wild Wedding Series will feature Olivia’s best friend Cassie as the female lead. All the characters from BTO will make appearances along with a few new ones as well. The first chapter is actually included at the end of book one, but here’s a little teaser:

ICING ON THE CAKE 

 

Cassandra Miller doesn’t have time for men. She’s far too busy preparing to open a cupcake shop with her silent partner and best friend, not to mention catering her brother’s wedding. And let’s face it, it’s not like Prince Charming is going to stroll into the bakery and sweep her off her feet. Henry has been a Prince his entire life but for one wild wedding he wants to be nothing more than an “Average Joe”, or in this instance, “Average Hank”. But when a case of mistaken identity and a batch of burned cupcakes ends in a night of passion, Cassie and Hank must decide if theirs is a recipe for disaster or the makings of true romance.

Bad Penny by Staci Hart Cover Reveal

BAD PENNY CR BANNER.jpg

Bad Penny, an all-new romantic comedy standalone from Staci Hart is coming June 15th!

cover-wrap-penny.png

Title: Bad Penny

Author: Staci Hart

Cover Designer: Quirkybird Designs

Photographer: Lauren Watson Perry

Synopsis

Nothing good comes after the third date.

See, date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he gets weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.

Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.

So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked and can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.

Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.

About Lindsay Detwiler

Lindsay Detwiler Picture

An English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay’s the English teacher cliché; she love cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.
She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.
Lindsay’s goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she’s done her job.
Lindsay’s hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility

5-star-a

Why, oh, why, have I waited this long to read something by M. Mabie!!! I love this woman and her sense of humor! A book hasn’t made me laugh this hard in a very long time. I LOVED the story and the characters!!!! I would give this book a MILLION STARS!!!!

Cord had me hooked from the very beginning of the book. He likes women, but he isn’t the typical manwhore. He does have a purpose for dating so many women, and this man dates every kind of woman. He’s looking for his soulmate. He wants to be ready when he finds her.

 

“When I meet the perfect woman for me, I want to be prepared, adept, and ready. You don’t skip kindergarten to grad school. You progress. You pick up things as you go. What better way to get to know my future wife—while I’m waiting for her—than by educating myself about the fairer sex the best way I can.” ~Cord

 

He knows she is out there even if his friends say he is too picky. He can’t help that no woman has had “that special chemistry.” All that changes when Dana walks into his coffee shop. He is completely tongue-tied. He sees nothing but her…her red hair and her lips. You will come to learn that Cord really loves her lips. She walks out without him getting her number, but he has hope because her sister works for him. Not only that, her best friend is marrying his best friend. Rueben has been trying to keep her away from Cord because of his dating history, and he doesn’t want there to be issues when Cord’s attention wanes, and he finds something wrong with her. Cord does agree not to go after her until after the wedding, but that doesn’t stop him from trying to be around her. I, mean, seriously, he has to get to know her asks her out, right?

Dana’s dating life is a walking disaster. She has a horrible track record. She is attracted to the hot, sexy ones who are jerks. So, she has decided to turn over a new leaf and find a sweet, cute, stable, and safe guy to settle down with. Too bad her libido didn’t give her brain that memo, especially when she lays eyes on Cord. She decides to give up her old dating habits but after she goes out with a BANG with one night with Cord…if she could just get him to sleep with her. Why is he resisting her????

OMG…these characters are CRAZY and REAL, but I totally loved them. They are people I want to be friends with!!!! When they attempt to discover more about each other, they stalk each other on social media and through their friends just like they would have done in high school. I LOVED it!!!! Their senses of humor kept me laughing. There were times I was glad I wasn’t drinking or eating something, if I was, I would have spit it everywhere. It’s not all humor, there is some angst, especially with Dana’s jaded view of men. Never fear…Cord is doing everything he can to dispel the myth that all hot men are like that! Speaking of sexy, the chemistry is INSANE. I don’t think I have ever wanted two people to just sleep with each other!

I loved the sweetness to this book as well! I enjoyed the friendship that developed between Dana and Cord, although usually there was a lot of sexual innuendo. As they were getting to know each other, I was getting to know them as well. I loved the secondary characters too, especially, Nolan, Rueben, and Nolan’s son, Trevor. If you can believe it, all three of these loveable guys helped raise Trevor, and he’s a great kid!

 

I highly recommend reading this one, and buckle up and enjoy the ride of Cord catching his “elusive unicorn,” as Rueben calls Cord’s quest for the perfect woman! On an endnote, I have just bought the ebook for my BFF!!!

synopsis

Aaron Rivers

Christa was the exact opposite of every woman who’d shared my bed for a night.
All I could think about was getting to know her intimately. She completely captivated me.
Then, as usual, I screwed up everything. My life. Her life. Our love.
Now her old crush is back in town, and he set his sights on Christa. But she’s mine. I’ll be damned if he gets her.
I will win her back before he wins her over.

Christa Lanes

Aaron breezed into my coffee shop and right into my heart. He was gorgeous, confident, and sexy.
Out of all the women who threw themselves at him, he wanted me.
Against my better judgment, I took a chance. Then he took our new life away.
When I was at my darkest, my lifelong friend Jared pulled me through, only to tell me he wants to take Aaron’s place.
But can I give my heart to Jared when Aaron already stole it?

5-star-a

Completely Captivated had me completely captivated from the very first pages. Although, A.D. Justice broke my heart in the beginning, she did slowly put the pieces back together again just as she does with Aaron and Christa.

 

“I’m not giving your love back to you, Aaron. You’re taking your love away from me.” ~Christa

 

As I said, the book begins in heartbreak. Christa thinks she’s found the love of her life, only to have him break her heart. You might think this is the end of the story, but it’s only just the beginning. As soon as he has made his decision, he immediately begins questioning it. One of the reasons I love A.D. Justice is that she adds a bit of mystery to her stories. There is a mystery as to why Aaron has made the decision to leave Christa. Thankfully, he will soon realize his mistake and begin trying to rectify it before he loses everything that is precious to him.

 

“He watched in slow motion as she reached up, wrapped her small fingers around his large ones, and dragged his hands off her face. The immediate emptiness slammed into him, driving deep into his core. He was losing her, losing his love, possibly even his destiny. Something vitally important was gone instantaneously, something he feared he’d never feel again.” ~Aaron

 

While I hated the heartache, I loved the story of their romance told in the first half of the book. I was not the biggest Aaron fan. He came across as an egotistical manwhore, BUT Christa changed all of that. To give the devil his due, he was honest about who he was. He didn’t try to hide it from the women or to us, readers. And, I just love when a woman brings a man to his knees. Christa has had her share of pain as well, but she seems to be determined to make her life better. As I read more, I realized Aaron had his share of insecurities. His past really affected his present relationships. Where he was dark, Christa was light.

 

“She was the light in his dark, dreary world, and he was extinguishing her flame. He couldn’t shake the feeling that was good and pure, and he was the exact opposite. The sins of his past wouldn’t let him forget what he’d done. When it came to his personal relationships, his judgment had been clouded, his heart jaded. He couldn’t trust his decisions or feelings, and he’d learned to bury them over the years.”

 

With the second half of the book, Justice takes us on Aaron’s quest to get Christa back. But, he will have some competition with Jared, Christa’s childhood friend. This is where it gets really good. Add in the mysterious character who is narrating the first chapter, and you won’t be able to put it down. She is a character in her own right, “buttercup.” This is a well-written romance with all the feels, both sadness and joy. The characters are extremely well-developed. Characters aren’t who they seem in the beginning. I highly recommend this one by A.D. Justice. I’m hoping we will be getting Allie’s story next….fingers crossed.

When Sadie Foster’s world collided with Ramsey Dalton, she never expected to find herself in the middle of a vicious war between two motorcycle clubs. Caught in a web of secrets and lies, Sadie begins to question everything about herself, and her life.

Ramsey is struggling to keep it together. With the conflict between the Steel Souls and The White Wolves coming to a head, Sadie’s life isn’t the only one at risk. Pulled in all directions, Ramsey is torn between his feelings for Sadie, and his ability to keep everyone he cares about safe from harm.

Uncovering a new reality at every turn, Ramsey and Sadie are pushed to their very limits and forced to evaluate everything they know to be true. But things are not always as they seem. And knowing who to trust can mean the difference between life and death.

There’s no denying the chemistry between them, and it seems their paths were always destined to cross. But is their connection strong enough to withstand the storm?

Because the reality is, there’s no war without passion, and no love without loss…
