Synopsis

Julia is a book-loving publisher’s assistant. Jack is a famous British rock star.
“Opposites attract” is an understatement.

It’s 1981. Twenty-four-year-old Julia Nash has recently arrived in Manhattan, where she works as a publisher’s assistant. She dreams of becoming an editor with her own stable of bestselling authors—but it is hard to get promoted in the recession-clobbered book biz.

Julia blows off steam by going dancing downtown with her best friend, Vicky. One night, a hot British guitarist invites them into his VIP section. Despite an entourage of models and groupies, Jack chooses Julia as his girl for the evening—and when Jack Kipling picks you, you go with it. The trouble is … he’s never met a girl like her before. And she resists being just one in a long line.

Jack exposes her to new experiences, from exclusive nightclubs in SoHo to the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood; from mind-bending recording sessions to wild backstage parties. Yet Julia is afraid to fall for him. Past relationships have left her fragile; one more betrayal just might break her.

As she fends off her grabby boss and tries to move up the corporate ladder, Julia’s torrid relationship with Jack takes her to heights she’s never known—and plunges her into depths she’s never imagined.

With a fascinating inside look at publishing, this entertaining story of a bookish young woman’s adventures with a rock superstar is witty, moving, and toe-curlingly steamy.

michele review4 stars

This is a great story! If you’re looking to be taken back to the 80’s for a trip down memory lane, this is the book for you!

I enjoyed reading Julia’s story and her time that she spends with Jack is hot! Though many give reason on how they shouldn’t be together or why it doesn’t work, you get to watch them prove them wrong. While with every great relationship there is always a bumpy road, and theirs is no different. Julia has her job as a publishing assistant and Jack is a Rockstar. Two completely different worlds and you get to see how they make it work.

If you looking for a quick light read, this is the book for you! Once you start you are completely unable to put it down.

Praise for Come Dancing

“Leslie Wells brings to life all the eclectic, edgy style of New York City at the dawn of the 1980s as she spins a story of spine-tingling romance and the complex issues that can threaten a relationship. Through her effervescent writing style she catapults the reader into a world of excess and indulgence, while delving into some honest and heartfelt struggles along the way. … Come Dancing is a love story with lots of heart and plenty of heat.”

—Casee Marie, Literary Inklings Book Reviews

“5 Blushing Stars!! Come Dancing is quite the story. I loved this story and could not put it down. I got lost in the story, imagining the rock stars and their groupies partying it up, while finding themselves and falling in love. Opposites certainly do attract and make for an explosive time! You will love the many layers of Jack; you will also want to smack him at times too. Julia will have you rooting for the underdog and wishing she had a better clothes fund 🙂 Through it all, the many naysayers and people out to split them up, they make it work! Fate seems to finally take its stand and allows for this fairytale story to end the way it should—hot, sexy and combustible!”

–Kellie, Blushing Divas Book Reviews

“I’m never sure what to expect when I venture away from historical fiction, but I found Leslie Wells’ Come Dancing quite enjoyable. Though more contemporary than my usual fare, I think the novel has a lot of heart and is a story many people will be able to relate to.

By far, my favorite aspects of the piece were the atmospheric qualities of the narrative. This is a New York before cell phones and digital cameras. It has different rhythm to it and follows a social structure that is entirely different from the New York of today. There is a contrast in that, something both familiar and almost foreign that really appealed to me.

There is a tangible affection between Julia and Jack which I truly appreciated, and I admired the journey their relationship takes over the course of the story. . .. A pleasant fiction, Come Dancing is brimming with both humor and heart. A realistic romance that is sure to entertain.”

–Erin, Flashlight Commentary Book Blog

christie review5 star a

The Secret is another rip-roaring, emotional ride of a story from the amazing Kate Benson. Like all the other books in the series, it takes you on so many twists and turns that you are an emotional mess by the time you finish the last page. I don’t know about other readers, but this is my favorite kind of book!

The third book in the series opens up right where the last one left off. I am writing this review a bit differently in that I will not be writing a lengthy synopsis. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone else who hasn’t had the opportunity to read this fantastic series. The only thing I will mention is Sophie and Chase will have to fight like they have never had to fight before if their relationship is going to survive.

One of the aspects of this story that struck me and affected me were the characters. With the emotional upheaval that occurs at the end of the last book and the beginning of this one, all the main characters are forever altered by it. Therefore, they all go through difficulty and ultimately are change. Some characters, like Ana, I got annoyed with at times. Yet, I could also understand exactly where she was coming from. Benson has always done a fantastic job of exploring each character on deeper levels with each book she writes in the series. However, with this one, she goes into overdrive. There are secrets about Sophie that are revealed that make the other characters, and myself, see her in a different light. It makes me love her even more. While I love Chase, who wouldn’t after reading these books, Sophie is the driving force behind them. She is a young girl that has been knocked down by life it seems at every turn, yet she pulls herself back up and becomes even stronger. She appears fragile at first glance, but she is the ultimate survivor and heroine. She is a character that will ALWAYS remain with me.

After every book I read by Kate Benson, I have to wait sometimes days, sometimes weeks before I can write a review that will do her any kind of justice. She writes such emotional books that have left me crying my eyes out, but she keeps bringing me back for more. Not only that, I think she has no more surprises to bring out, then BANG, she has done it again. Then, I am waiting on pins and needles for the next journey she is going to take me on. The emotions she brings out in her readers along with the yearning to see what she is going to do next make her an incredibly talented author and one to watch and add to your reading list. By the way, Kate, I loved the reference to your other series, The Escort, as the book Chase reads to Sophie. Nice, little hidden gem!

Abou the authorI grew up in Texas and moved to Florida when I met the love of my life 13 years ago. I wrote my first poem when I was five and it was about my love affair with pickles. I still love pickles but I like to think my writing has grown since then. I absolutely adore anything to do with books whether it’s writing them or devouring them in one sitting. I live on music, love, and sweet tea.
I am known for my silly but blunt personality. I’ve been lucky enough to find the love of my life, marry him and now we’re working on our happily ever after. He inspires me in everything I do, but especially in telling love stories.
I’m an ordinary girl living an extraordinary love and I’m so happy I get to share it with the world through my writing. I can’t wait for all of you to read my books!

~ Warped by Alicia Taylor & Natalie Townson Release Blitz ~

Title: Warped – The Manipulation Trilogy Book Two
Authors: Alicia Taylor & Natalie Townson
Genre: Romantic Suspense.

Synopsis

 

I won’t be caught off guard again. I won’t let them win. They played the first round and won. Now it’s time for me to even the score. Damon and Leona will pay for their twisted games. Leona is first.
His touch repulses me. 
His fake affection disgusts me. 
He sickens me.
I need to get my head in the game. I need to be smart and break their bond to more easily crush them. Damon is clever. He knows what he’s doing. He’s been playing the game long enough.
He’s twisted. 
I’m warped.
It’s time to finally end this. 
Time to finally win.
 
Excerpt
“I need you,” I say as my hands glide over the planes of his chest, each muscle tightening under my palms.
“I know what you need, beauty,” he growls. 
Damon squeezes my arse before one of his hands slides down the back of my thigh. He grips the back of my knee and brings my leg up to hook around his hip. I cling to his shoulders and dig the heel of my foot into his firm arse cheek to steady myself.
His hard cock bobs against my stomach, making me desperate for him. Damon presses his chest to mine and claims my mouth in a hungry kiss. His tongue collides with mine, and they battle together.  
My blood heats to volcanic temperatures, my pussy clenching and dripping. I need him in me, filling me. Instead, Damon’s fingers make contact with my throbbing clit. He rubs around the hood in a soft circle before slipping down my wet folds to my entrance, where he slowly runs a fingertip around the outer rim before plunging two fingers inside. I cry out and my body clenches around his thick digits.
“You’re so fucking wet, Ella. Fuck, you unravel me, baby.”
Damon starts a steady rhythm with his fingers as he kisses down my neck. I throw my head back and moan as he nibbles at my pulse point. I don’t know what it is about his nibbles but they turn my insides to mush. Moans pour from me as he pulls his fingers out and rubs hard on my hooded pearl. 
My body trembles in his hold. Damon releases his grip on my arse to grip my hip, and walks me back a step, until my back presses against the cold, tiled shower wall. His assault on my pussy doesn’t stop. He alternates between finger fucking me and caressing my clit.
His other hand slips from my hip to my back, and slowly strokes up my spine. Goosebumps break out across my skin and I whimper. My nails dig into his neck as my orgasm builds, ready to break and make me float. 
“Damon,” I cry. I just need something more, it’s not enough. Damon seems to notice, and his hand leaves my back to grasp my hair. He tugs, pulling my head back, and my chin juts into the air. Damon’s lips travel up my neck to rest at the tip of my chin. 
His hand cups my pussy, his palm presses into my clit, his finger hooks in me. He hits my secret bundle of nerves, making me scream. Fuck, it feels so good.
 I grind into his palm as he closes his lips around my chin and gently bites, pulling my hair at the same time. A deep feral growl erupts from him, vibrating into me, tearing a moan from me. 
“Damon… oh fuck…. Damon… I’m gonna… ohhhh,” I pant out. 
My upper body erupts with chills as Damon pulls away from me slightly, only to latch on to my nipple, biting with enough sting to send me over the edge. I scream his name as wave after wave of pure bliss rolls through me.

daniell review4 starsJazz Mickelson is a 26-year-old widow going on an adventure of self-discovery after years of taking care of her terminally husband. Her journey begins on a plane to Paris where she meets billionaire architect Julian St. Sauveur.

Since breaking it off with his cheating fiance, Julian has been focused solely on his job. Now, 6 years later, he is looking for something more than his one-night stands. When he meets Jazz on the plane, he is immediately enthralled with her and will stop at nothing to convince her to let him be part of her adventure.

Unable to deny their chemistry, Jazz agrees to spend time with Julian in Paris. Julian sees potential for something long term with Jazz but knows she isn’t ready for that. However, they enjoy the sights of Paris together, in and out of the bedroom. But what happens when Julian asks for more?

Very enjoyable book! The flirtatious banter and not so innocent touching on the long flight between Julian and Jazz is very entertaining and sets the steamy stage for this book. Jazz’s sex life, even before her husband’s illness, was lackluster but now she is discovering her inner temptress with Julian’s guidance. Of course, just as this book really starts to heat up, it ends with a cliffhanger!! I can’t wait to read more about Julian and Jazz!!!

Abou the author

I’m a wife of many years to a great guy who is completely supportive of my writing and excited for me but I think totally petrified to ask details. When I started this and he asked what it was about I answered “erotic romance”. He looked at my quizzically, so I elaborated — “smut” and he asked no more…

I have a full time career and am mom to two beautiful fur babies–at the current moment… They’re way more photogenic than me, hence my profile pic!

I’m an avid motorcyclist and after many years of contemplation and story ideas formulated riding our great continent I have finally put fingers to keyboard. This is the most monumental event of my life–yes, even eclipsing marriage et al.

As always apologies to my mom who wishes she could wash my mind out with soap!

So looking forward to sharing my characters and their stories with readers, I hope that they bring you as much joy reading them as I am having writing them.

Jag by Stevie J. Cole Blog Tour Sept. 22nd-30th

 

Synopsis“My name’s Jag Steele. I’m the lead singer and guitarist to the band Pandemic Sorrow and I have a drug problem – well, I mean it’s not really a problem
unless you count the fact that I almost made my heart explode from all the blow I shoved up my nose a few weeks back.”

That was my introduction during my first stint in rehab. I’m a fuckup. If you ask anybody who I am there’s a list they will go down: Famous, rock star,
legend, drug addict, womanizing man-whore… but if you asked me, I wouldn’t have the first idea of what to say because I don’t know who Jag Steele is.
Really, I’m living every other damn person’s dream, and all I want is reality.

Roxy Slade, that girl was my reality. My brutally flawed and beautifully broken reality. And she fucking hated everything I stood for. To her I was just
one of “those guys”, and she’d rather be buried alive with poisonous snakes than give someone like me a piece of toilet paper to wipe their ass with.
Brutal – Life. Is. Brutal. And it is just a giant pain in the ass, which is why I chase after anything to make it numb, anything that can fill this void. I
just want anything that can make me not feel.

Excerpt

“Well,” she said, “you’re clean now. That’s amazing. You’ve been clean for – how long now?”

Just talking about those drugs had made my mouth water. Every fiber inside my body was twitching, thinking about how good it would feel to just get
something in my system. My heart was banging against my chest with anger, with the need for something that would cut the pain of being sober right out of
my life.

Forcing a smile so it would appear I really was proud, I said, “Six months.” I knew I was lying, I knew it had only been two weeks ago that I had gone
through an eight ball of coke, and I had just drank myself into a stupor the night before, but other than those two times, I really had been sober – I
think.

Brittney beamed, relieved that part of the interview was over with. “That’s awesome, Jag. You are such an inspiration. Addiction is a hard battle to win,
and to see you doing it is wonderful. I’m sure many of your fans find strength hearing you say that.”

I hated hearing that. I despised that somehow, for some unknown fucking reason, people still looked up to me. No matter what mess I got into, people still
wanted to be me. Liars like me shouldn’t be role models, but that’s what happens when you’re a celebrity – regardless of how worthy you are, you become an
idol.

I was too weak for fame, but she didn’t care. She broke me, and I tried to let drugs mend me. While it numbed the pain and may have held the pieces
together in a nice little package, I was deteriorating on the inside, and it was only a matter of time before it would all crumble to a pile of shit. In
the beginning I’d thought fame was as close to being a mortal god as you could get, and in some ways I was right. The thing I had no idea about was my
ability to handle this fucking double-edged sword. I like to think of fame as a metamorphosis. You get all wrapped up in it, almost like a cocoon, and the
way I emerged from it was like that moth from Silence of the Lambs, with the stamp of death and destruction all over me. I had no idea how to handle fame,
so, unfortunately, fame handled me.
