Synopsis
They say in order to find yourself you have to go home.
What if home was what you’re running from?
Where did that leave you?
Always on the other side of the fence.
Always looking in.
Always wishing you were someone you couldn’t be.
Until one day you meet her.
The one.
She was my high, but she was also…
 
My demise.

 

Excerpt
 
Colors
blended together making it hard to focus on one thing. I blinked a few times
and just like that…
I
saw her face.
As
if she was standing right in front of me.
Smiling.
Happy.
Laughing.
My
whole world…
My
girl.
I
felt my lips curl up slightly at the vision as I reached out for her. Wanting
to touch her, needing to hold her, yearning to kiss her. Craving, God, craving
to fucking love her.
“I’m
sorry,” I murmured out loud to no one but the illusion of my drug-infested
mind. “I’m so fucking sorry,” I repeated repentantly, longing for her to
believe me.
Aching
for her to love me again like she used to.
I
don’t know how long I sat there, staring at her beautiful face before my eyes,
subconsciously rubbing the tattooed key that was placed over my heart. I
couldn’t take it anymore, and the desire won over the haze.
It
was too powerful.
It
was too vivid.
I
grabbed my phone. “Baby,” I said into the speaker. The ringing quickly
followed, going straight to voicemail. I hung up and tried again. “Baby,” I
urged with desperation in my tone.
Still
nothing.
I
tried again and again and again.
I
would try until the end of time if that’s what it took for her to answer.
To
talk to me.
To
save me.
To
crave me.
Time
just seemed to standstill, as my life slowly played out in front of me. Trying
to balance in between the light and the darkness when all I could see was gray.
“What?!”
she screamed into the phone, finally answering after I don’t know how many
failed attempts. “What the hell do you want now?”
“Mi
cielo.” I breathed a sigh of relief.
She
ignored my term of endearment. I hadn’t called her that in such a long time.
My
heaven.
“What
do you want, Austin? Why are you calling me? We’re over! I can’t do this
anymore!”  
I shut
my eyes and let my mind wonder, allowing it to go to another place in time
where she didn’t hate me.
“I
remember the first time I made you smile,” I chuckled, as if it had just
happened.
My
nerves were on fire. The mere sound of her breathing through the phone was too
intense for me. I licked my lips, my mouth suddenly dry.
“I
remember when you used to smile just for me. Do you remember, baby? Do you
remember what my love feels like?”
I
heard her faintly breathing.
“Do
you remember my hands on you? My lips? My tongue? The first time I made you
come with my mouth? Do you remember all the times since? Tell me I’m not
forgotten. Tell me you remember, baby.”
Silence.
“I
love you, Briggs. I love you so fucking much. You’re killing me, don’t you see
that? I’m dying without you.”
“No,
Austin. You were dying with me,” she rasped, knowing that it killed her to say
that.
“The
first time I saw your face, I thought to myself, damn, this beautiful girl is
goin’ to be the death of me. You were perfect in every way. I was a cocky son
of a bitch who needed you then, as much as I need you now.” 
More
silence.
“I
had a dream about you, baby. I always fucking dream about you. In my dream you
had a ring on your finger. A ring I put there. You belonged to me. Only mine.
Forever fucking mine. You were pregnant, Briggs. You looked so goddamn happy. I
saw light at the end of the tunnel for the first time in years.”
She
sniffled into the phone.
“I
made love to you. Slow, just the way you love. Taking my time to touch every
last inch of your body. Memorizing every last bit of you. Making you come until
you begged me to stop. I didn’t.”
“I
can’t—” she tried to interject, but I didn’t let up.
“I
kissed your stomach. Our baby. Letting my lips linger there, whispering sweet
lullabies, letting her know daddy will always be there. Baby, it was so real.
For a second I gave you the one thing you so desperately wanted, the one thing
I can’t give you.”

Allana Harrison wanted out. She wanted to escape her painful, broken past and enjoy a fresh start somewhere else. Anywhere else. And while all of the boys in high school and college promised to deliver that dream, only one man actually pulled through.
 
Now a young adult, Allana finds herself on the opposite side of the world, in a prosperous and rich town that’s not only isolated from her past, but from the crime, grime and hustle of bigger cities, in a country where she doesn’t understand the language or know anybody else except her husband.

Abou the author
Morgan

Author Bio: As the author of the best-selling mystery romance, Surviving Goodbye, Morgan Parker has written several other novels under this pen name. In 2012 and 2013, he self-published Textual Encounters and Textual Encounters: 2, respectively. As a result of the interest in these two stories, he wrote non friction, an unconventional love story. That love story earned Mr. Parker a tremendous amount of attention and at the insistence of his readers, he followed it with Hope (a novella) and Sick Day. All three of those stories have spent time on Amazon best-seller lists.

When not writing, Morgan likes to spend time gathering story material from his two young children, rereading books by Colin Harrison, and napping where he discovered the Type II Sleep State, which is the topic for an untitled trilogy to be released in late-2016.

~ The Dance by Alison G Bailey Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway ~

The Dance Blog Tour Banner
Photographer:  Abigail Marie, Non Pa’Reil Photography


Cover Design: Murphy Hopkins, Indie Solutions
 
Synopsis
The Dance is the story of what happens after the happily ever.
 
Bryson Walker stumbled heart first into the steady rhythm of her
life, never questioning whether other possibilities existed. She had been
Will’s girl since their junior year in high school, followed him to college,
and married him soon after graduation.
 
In every respect, they were a loving and successful couple,
until a series of missteps shattered all of Bryson’s truths. Maybe their life
was nothing more than smoke and mirrors. A performance that was never based in
reality.
 
Hart was barely an acquaintance. He and Bryson shared one brief
moment during senior prom, full of friction and heat that ignited a spark. But
that night Bryson walked away and Hart let her go.
 
Years later, twisted fate brings Bryson and Hart together again,
causing her to wonder if this is her second chance at once in a lifetime.
 
 

 

Excerpt

the Dance

Prologue
I stood in front of the glass wall, mesmerized. The fake sunlight shimmered down through the water, bouncing off the yellow, green, and pink coral. The blue glow of the tank gave the dimly lit nook a mystical dreamy feel.
The prom committee had pulled off an epic feat this year. Instead of having the dance in our gross school gym it was being held at the new state-of-the-art aquarium downtown. Once the student committee agreed, Megan Sims, head cheerleader and overly developed youth, was given the task of presenting the new location idea to the faculty advisor, Mr. Hall. During the meeting, as Megan waxed poetic about riding the waves of hope out into the ocean of the future, she hoisted her massive boobs up to meet Mr. Hall’s sightline. Three seconds into Megan’s spiel the dude was so titnotized that he would have offered up his first born in order to pay the rental fee.
At first, I had my doubts about spending my final prom at the aquarium. The fishy décor didn’t exactly scream romance, but I had to admit, it was pretty cool. The dance was in Ballroom A, which opened up onto a huge deck facing the Charleston harbor. Inside three giant purple octopus chandeliers hung down from the ceiling, casting cool shadows on the walls covered in varying shades of blue. Big white coral sculptures were at the four corners of the room. Tables draped in white linen with candles and seashell centerpieces outlined the room, leaving a huge space in the middle for dancing.

What happens when the HEA you’ve always pictured turns out to be just an illusion? What do you do when you realize your Prince Charming might just be a frog? These are the questions facing Bryson when she discovers the secrets her husband, Will, is keeping. However, she’s been Will’s, and Will has been hers since high school. The only time she ever considered someone different was when she encountered bad boy, Hart, during her prom. Their one dance would change them in ways they never imagined, but Bryson and Hart never happened, and she went on to marry Will. Everything seemed perfect at first, but when life threw a couple of curveballs, Bryson begins to see the cracks in her relationship with Will. Had they always been there? When Bryson and Hart meet by chance, the chemistry and magic is still there. They develop a friendship, and he provides her the support and encouragement she doesn’t get from Will. If you think this is your normal romance or a love triangle, you would be very wrong. There are unexpected twists, pain, redemption, and love.

There were times I was so angry when I read The Dance. At times, I hated Will and the way he treated Bryson. I was also angry with Bryson in continually giving up her dreams and allowing herself to be his doormat. As I continued my reading, my feelings changed a bit for Will. I’m sure some readers would disagree with me. Yes, he was horrible to Bryson at times, but by the end, I didn’t completely hate him. In fact, there were times I felt quite sorry for him (even though his choices weren’t always good). He was a very complicated and complex character. As Bryson became stronger, I also realized she wasn’t his doormat, she was a person who loved with her whole heart and always looked for the good in a person. And, Hart, he was my favorite, he took what life gave him and made the most of it. He went through his own pain, and instead of turning into a bitter person, he brought happiness to others. He is probably most unselfish person EVER! We need more Hart’s in this world…the world would definitely be a better place.

I became a HUGE fan of Alison G. Bailey’s after reading STOP, and I’m an even bigger fan of hers now! Not all parts of this book were pleasant or easy to read, but it is a MUST READ!!! It’s not just a book to entertain, but it’s a book that makes you feel something….sadness, happiness, and anger. Bailey is a master at playing with your emotions, and that is my favorite kind of writer. The Dance makes you think about life and the choices you make, and it also a story of hope. Life isn’t always perfect, but it’s what you do with your life that makes the difference and determines your own happiness!

~ Power Play (Pilots Hockey #2) by Sophia Henry Sale Blitz ~

 

POWER PLAY
Pilots Hockey #2
Sophia Henry
Released February 16th, 2016
Flirt
Synopsis
In Sophia Henry’s blistering
follow-up to Delayed Penalty, hailed as “sexy, fun, and full of
angst” by L. P. Dover, a good girl and a hockey hunk face off against
expectations—and this match is guaranteed to see plenty of action.
 
Beneath her
innocent facade, Gabriella Bertucci has her reasons to be standoffish with
guys. Especially guys like Landon Taylor, a star defenseman on the minor-league
Detroit Pilots and the object of a serious crush since he first walked into her
family’s market. But when Landon comes through for her in a moment of crisis,
Gaby starts to wonder if there might be more to Landon than hard muscles and
fast skates.
 

 

Landon
isn’t afraid of telling Gaby that he’s got it for her bad. The problem is, she
seems unwilling to believe it. And though Landon enjoys his reputation as a
cool-headed athlete, he hates losing—both on the rink and off. It’s his
competitiveness that makes him so damn good at what he does . . . but it also
makes him just a little bit complicated.

One minute Gaby’s tempted to give in; the next, she’s getting cold feet. How
can she trust a guy who’s destined for bigger and better things to stick
around? Then again, when Landon pulls her close with those powerful arms, the
only thing that matters is right now.

City & Suzy are back!

I had everything I ever wanted—a wife, a kid, with two more on the way. I was living the American dream. After the babies were born, we hit a rough patch. I did everything to prove my love, to show Suzy that nothing was more important than her. After some work and a lot of time, we found our groove again. Just when life had evened out, a familiar enemy came back to haunt us. It wasn’t my past that followed us, but my brother’s. When the danger gets too close, I’ll do anything to defend my family. There’s nothing more important than the people I love, and I’ll protect what’s mine—even if it costs me my life.

Excerpt

Suzy glared at me. “What’s this we shit? I’m the one with two aliens inside of me, trying to claw their way out of my body. I’m the only one pushing them out of my tiny vagina. Not you. Not her. Me!” She waved her hands frantically in the air. “I’m the one doing everything while you sit there calm, sexy, and without your body splitting in two. I’m going to be the one tearing wide open as I push two humans and their giant Gallo heads out of my body.” She collapsed, gasping for air, and closed her eyes.

I bit my lip. Pregnant Suzy was unpredictable, but in-labor Suzy was just downright scary. “I know, sugar. You’re doing all the hard work. I’m just here to cheer you on and support you.”

Her nostrils flared and her eyes grew wide when she glanced up. “Support me? If you want to support me, you’ll never knock me up again. You want to cheer me on?” She rolled her eyes and made a noise low in her throat. “Stop fucking talking.”

I braced myself, waiting for her head to do a 360. I brought my mouth right next to her ear. “My sweet little wife, you beg for my cock every day. It takes two to tango, sweetheart. I didn’t put you in that bed.” I lowered my voice further, whispering, “Your sweet little cunt did.”

She closed her eyes again and moaned. “You’re just too damn good. I can’t keep my hands to myself. It’s still your fault, my dear husband.”

I couldn’t hold it in any longer. I burst into laughter. “Now, I fuck you too good?”

“Yes!” she screeched, pounding her fist on the crappy, plastic hospital bed. “If you weren’t so good at it, I wouldn’t be lying here right now.”

Just as I was about to reply, the nurse walked in. “I hear someone is ready to push.” Her voice was so chipper, kind of like my wife’s used to sound like before pregnancy. “Are we excited?” she asked, moving a tray of instruments next to the foot of the bed.

“I just want this over. I’m so freaking uncomfortable.”

“That makes two of us,” I muttered and nodded at the nurse with a fake smile on my face before leaning over and kissing Suzy’s forehead. “Ready, sugar?”

Author: Cassie Strickland

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: June 15, 2016

add-to-goodreads-button31

Synopsis

Ben

Those gold eyes were the first thing I noticed. I wanted more than anything to get lost in them, drown in her, to let go of my fears and doubts my past had left behind.
But it wasn’t just me I had to consider.
My son came first.
She’s a force to be reckoned with, though. She was everywhere, in my dreams even, tempting me to throw caution to the wind.
And I was weak.
I gave into my clawing desire and let myself enjoy one night with her, having no clue she’d change me forever.
Once wasn’t enough. I became addicted. I craved her – her scent, her skin, her smile, her eyes…her love.
I need Samantha.

Samantha

My life was uncomplicated. It was free and easy.
Then I met him, the man with the blue-violet eyes that entranced me.
I had a feeling I was making a big mistake when agreeing to one night of carnal bliss, but I was unable to walk away. I just couldn’t have foreseen how big of one it was.
He turned my world upside-down, working his way into my heart until it beat only for him. Now everything is complex, and there are secrets he’s not telling me.
Will he ever let me in?
Time would tell, but one thing is sure – I’d walk through hell and back, feel the blistering lick of each flame against my flesh, for just the promise of Ben.

Not intended for anyone under the age of eighteen due to language and sexual content.

Note from the author:
Fated Bliss is the second book in The Bliss Series, and though it is recommended to read Finding Bliss first, it’s not needed. Fated Bliss is a standalone novel with an HEA.

Excerpt

Ben cleared his voice, breaking the silence. “Is this you?”

I hadn’t realized we’d stopped outside my door.

“Oh…yeah.” My hands shook as I slipped my keycard from my clutch. I smiled at him as I opened the door. “Come on in. There’s a fully stocked bar inside.”

I didn’t give him a chance to say anything and ambled inside, expecting him to follow. I threw my purse on the dresser and continued to the bar, turning on lights as I went.

“Nice place,” Ben remarked behind me, closing the door.

“I know. My brother hooked me up,” I replied, grabbing two beers and opening them.

With my heart in my throat, I discarded the caps and spun around. Ben was standing at the mouth of the hall leading into the room, his shoulder to the wall, seemingly unsure. I continued to him and passed him the beer.

“Why don’t we have a seat,” I suggested, waving to the couch in front of the floor to ceiling windows.

Why was I so nervous?

You already know why, Sam.

You. Do. Not. Do. This!

Before I could turn back around, Ben grabbed my hand and plucked my beer from my grip. He placed the beers on the dresser next to my clutch, slowly maneuvering me until my back was pressed against the wall. I swallowed thickly and peered up at him. With two hands next to my head, he caged me in and crowded me.

He sighed slowly and then played with a strand of my hair between two fingers. “Samantha…”

I felt like this needed to be said, so I blurted, “I don’t do this.”

He flashed me his pearly whites and replied, “I know. I can tell. But you’re not the only one out of your element here, sweetheart. This is the first time I’ve followed a woman back to her place.”

My forehead scrunched with shock and disbelief. “Really?”

His head descended, and though I expected him to kiss me, he merely rested his forehead against mine. I could detect a hint of beer on his breath, but surprisingly, it was tantalizing. I wanted to close the distance so badly that I’d sell my soul for just one sip from his lips.

Ben groaned, “You weren’t supposed to happen.”

“Why not?” I whispered, confused.

Talking was the last thing I wanted to do. Everything in me ached for him.

“When I came here…” He leaned closer and pressed his cheek to mine, inhaling deeply. My legs shook. “You weren’t in my plans. I couldn’t have foreseen such a stunning,” he placed his lips to the underside of my ear, “captivating,” his teeth nipped my jaw, “completely tempting woman.” His tongue snuck out as he nibbled down my neck, causing my knees to turn to rubber. “You’ve knocked me on my ass, Samantha. I don’t know what in the hell I’m doing.”

I shuddered, letting my head fall back, opening myself up for his exploration. “I wasn’t expecting you either, Ben. I’m in over my head, too.”

“We don’t have to do this,” he stated, his voice jagged, though his actions were contradictory. His hands traveled down to my waist, his fingers digging in deep to keep me anchored in place. “I can walk out of here. All you have to do is tell me.”

No chance in hell.

“Don’t you dare, Ben.”

“I want to make promises. I want to say I’ll see you tomorrow and the next day and the next. I want-”

“Shhh. Don’t, Ben. Don’t say those things to me.”

Promises were the last thing I needed. My heart couldn’t handle it once this was over if he made any.

“See… I know you’re not the type of girl that does this.” He drew the shell of my ear between his teeth and bit down lightly. I whimpered. “You’re sucking me in, sweetheart, just like I’m doing to you. Something’s bound to go wrong, and the last thing I want to do is hurt you.”

Shamelessly, not wanting him to move, I wrapped my arms around his neck and held tight. “Nothin’ needs to go wrong. I don’t expect anythin’ after tonight, so you can’t hurt me.”

I might be slightly sore once this was over, but he was worth it.

Just for the night…

“You’re lying, sweetheart.” He pulled back a little, taking his lips from my skin, and peered down at me, his eyes ravenous. “We’re both going to be bruised and bloody come tomorrow.”

“Why, Ben?” I questioned.

“Because, baby girl, I’ve never wanted anyone the way I want you.”

His words had power over me, and breathlessness left me lightheaded. “Ben…” I moaned, and my lids fluttered closed.

“Fuck it,” he growled, and then his lips crashed into mine.

Synopsis
In this
steamy novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Blurred
Lines,
 country music’s favorite good girl hides away from the
world—and finds herself bunking with a guy who makes her want to be a little
bad.
 
Jenny Dawson moved to Nashville to
write music, not get famous. But when her latest record goes double platinum,
Jenny’s suddenly one of the town’s biggest stars—and the center of a tabloid
scandal connecting her with a pop star she’s barely even met. With paparazzi
tracking her every move, Jenny flees to a remote mansion in Louisiana to write
her next album. The only hiccup is the unexpected presence of a brooding young
caretaker named Noah, whose foul mouth and snap judgments lead to constant
bickering—and serious heat.
 
 
Noah really should tell Jenny that
he’s Preston Noah Maxwell Walcott, the owner of the estate where the feisty
country singer has made her spoiled self at home. But the charade gives Noah a
much-needed break from his own troubles, and before long, their verbal sparring
is indistinguishable from foreplay. But as sizzling nights give way to quiet
pillow talk, Noah begins to realize that Jenny’s almost as complicated as he
is. To fit into each other’s lives, they’ll need the courage to face their
problems together—before the outside world catches up to them.

Excerpt

 Jenny
“Sweetie . . . ,” Amber says in a gentle voice that has me tensing.
I love Amber to death, but she’s not usually one for sweet-talking. She’s more the type of friend who will actually tell you that a certain pair of jeans absolutely makes your butt look big.
I go very still, wondering if I’m going to need more chocolate chips for this. “What? Tell me.”
“Have you ever hooked up with Shawn Bates?”
I make a face. “Yuck, no.”
“But you’ve hung out?”
“No. I’ve met him, like, twice. Maybe three times.”
“When was the last time you saw him?”
My heart is pounding now, because there’s an urgency in Amber’s voice that I’m not used to hearing. “I don’t know. The Grammys, I guess. We had our picture taken together, I think.”
Shawn Bates is one of those ridiculously good-looking guys who’s also been blessed with a decent voice. He won best pop vocal album three years in a row.
He was up against me for album of the year. I can’t imagine he was thrilled about losing, but he was friendly enough. A little skeevy, but maybe that’s because I only know his reputation. And I, of all people, know not to believe everything you hear.
“Do you have your laptop handy?” Amber asks in that scary quiet voice.
Oh, crap. Instinctively I know this is bad. Really bad.
I stand, heading into the kitchen, where I left my iPad, Dolly trotting along at my ankles, happy and oblivious with her little chipmunk in her mouth.
“Which site?” I say as I turn on the tablet.
“Any of them.“
As it turns out, I don’t even need to go to a celebrity gossip site. I was reading Google News this morning with my coffee, and it’s still up on my browser window.
Only this time . . .
This time I am the news.
I stare blindly, clicking on the top article, my eyes reading the headline about a dozen times before my brain finally registers it: “Does America’s Favorite Good Girl Have a Secret Seductress Side?”
Below the headline is a picture of me and Shawn at the Grammys, both of us with awards in hand. My head is tilted back in a laugh, and even though I know my happiness comes from winning the award rather than my proximity to Shawn Bates, I have to admit that I look semi-smitten with the guy.
His eyes are locked on my cleavage, his smile far more intimate than it has a right to be considering that our conversation lasted only a split second longer than the picture itself.
At the time, I’d thought the shimmering pink dress the perfect combination of sweet and sexy, but looking at it now, with this headline, it seems garish. My smile’s too wide, my posture too open, my smoky eye makeup too much . . .
“Jenny. Talk to me,” Amber says.
“It’ll pass, right?” I say, still unable to look away from the photo to actually read the article.
Amber doesn’t reply, and Dolly lets out a sad little whimpering noise before sitting on top of my foot as though trying to shield me from what’s to come.
“It’s just another stupid rumor,” I say. “The tabloids are getting exceedingly bold. I can sue, right? And Shawn can sue, and we’ll—”
“Shawn confirmed it,” Amber says.
My ears buzz. “What?”
“This morning. Coming out of the gym, the vultures were all over him. Instead of keeping his mouth shut, Shawn said, and I quote, ‘Look, I’m not proud of my actions, but I can’t be the first guy to get pulled into Jenny Dawson’s vortex, and I’m sure I won’t be the last. At this point, all I can do is look forward and try to make amends.’”
“What is he talking about?” I squeak, my eyes closing as I pull hard on my ponytail in frustration. “Make amends for what? My vortex? Is that a thing?”
“It gets worse,” Amber says, her voice miserable.
“I don’t know how that’s even possible.”
“He’s not the only one who’s confirmed the story.”
I blink. “Someone else is also delusional?”
“Yeah. His wife.”
“Oh my God,” I whisper.
I don’t know much about Shawn Bates’s wife, but pretty much everyone knows their story. Childhood sweethearts who started dating in middle school, they got married right out of high school, shortly before Shawn got famous.
There are always rumors that he’s cheating, but like I’ve said, I don’t put much faith in rumors.
One thing I know for sure is that if he is cheating, it’s not with me.
“She posted a tearful selfie on every single social media platform along with a big old statement about how she and Shawn are going through a rough patch, but their love is stronger than any country-singing home wrecker.”
“I’m not a home wrecker.”
“I know that, J. But you have that song, and there’s that picture—”
“The song was euphemistic!” I say, referring to my first hit single, a song I wrote about all the things that can come between a couple once the honeymoon period’s over: the TV, bills, iPhones, work. Those are the home wreckers.
Not me.

christie review 5 star a

Lauren Layne has done it again…a perfect romance filled with swoonworthy moments, humor, some hot sex, and plenty of romance! I read this one well into the night!

Jenny is a country singer who loves to sing; she doesn’t love the fame. She’s recently moved to California at her publicist’s urging to make her even more popular. She hates the fakeness and the paparazzi she encounters on a daily basis. She suddenly finds herself embroiled in a scandal that could tarnish her “good girl” image, but the irony is, she really is a good girl. She hasn’t done anything she has been accused of, so she flees to an estate in Louisiana that holds a special place in her heart. Little does she know her life will never be the same once she meets the owner, Noah. In fact, neither realize how much their lives will change.

At first glance, the synopsis might lead you to believe Good Girl is your average romance between America’s sweetheart and the owner of a run-down estate. However, you would be VERY wrong. In Layne’s talented hands, she turns it into so much more! This is where the book really takes off. Both Jenny and Noah are living a charade. Noah thinks she is a spoiled, high maintenance starlet, and Jenny makes the assumption Noah is the caretaker, and his friend, Vaughn, is actually the caretaker. Noah goes along with it. The two begin with a rather rocky relationship, but again that’s a façade too. There is so much sizzling chemistry between these two. It just leaps off the pages. When these two finally make it to the bedroom, you can imagine the fireworks!!!! But the question remains, can they make a relationship work with their different lives and the secrets they are keeping?

As with all of Layne’s other books, she creates a great cast of characters. Jenny really is a sweetheart! She isn’t pretentious; she’s very real. She chooses to see the good in others, even Noah. She knows he sees her as a spoiled superstar, and she accepts that. But, her goodness shines through, and Noah finally sees it. Noah, well, there were times I didn’t know if I wanted to kiss him or slap him in the face. He does make up for it in the bedroom though and in the whispers in Jenny’s ear….that boy has a naughty mouth. He, like Jenny, is straddling two worlds. I won’t tell you those details…you have to read that. Both are trying to find their own place in the world, you just hope they realize they can do it together. The secondary characters were great as well…loved Vaughn, Finn, and Amber. But, my two favorites weren’t human at all, they were of the canine world, Dolly, a Pomerian and Ranger, a Lab.

I, myself love a romance with a sexy, southern man and a sweet, sassy heroine. Add to it great characters, a beautiful setting in Louisiana, and you have a perfect romance! I have a soft spot for southern boys and dogs, especially Labs, so Good Girl is one of my favorite romances! I am always on the lookout for Layne’s new books.

Synopsis

In the explosive debut of Stacey Lynn’s irresistible Fireside series, a pair of estranged lovers are reunited by dangerous loyalties—and intoxicating desire.

Tyson Blackwell never saw it coming when his Mafia princess girlfriend dumped him and disappeared at the age of eighteen. He never forgot her, either, even after what happened next: the killing of his father, a Detroit PD officer, at the hands of one of her father’s men. Tyson swore revenge, and now, ten years later, the kid who dreamed of a pro football career is a hard-nosed FBI agent, back in town to take down the Galecki crime family once and for all. But Tyson’s mission gets complicated fast—because going undercover means seducing the only woman he’s ever loved.

Gabriella “Blue” Galecki has been in hiding for a decade. She finally comes home to spend time with her terminally ill mother, only to receive a blast from the past when she runs into Tyson. His brooding eyes and electrifying touch still send chills down her spine. But as heir to the family empire, Blue has been promised to another. Caught in a web of deception, she is tempted to pull the trigger on the boldest risk she’s ever taken: trusting Tyson with her life, her body, and her heart.

HIS TO PROTECT (Fireside, #2) – Coming July 12, 2016!

Pre Order from Amazon

27245811

A warm home for broken hearts, the Fireside Grill serves up hope and healing in equal measure. Stacey Lynn’s sensual, deeply emotional series heats up as a jaded restaurateur falls hard for a woman who’s hiding from a damaged past.

Declan James lost his last ounce of trust the day his wife walked out the door, leaving him to save the restaurant they built together. Throwing himself into his work, Declan swears off women—or at least, women who expect him to stick around in the morning. But when he discovers a skittish beauty scrounging through the Fireside’s trash to feed her dog, Declan offers her a job and a place to rest her head. There’s just something about her that awakens his protective side. And soon, not even that mangy mutt can stop Declan from caring for her.

After one too many trips to the ER, Trina Wilson finally gathered the courage to leave her husband, taking only her car and hyperactive boxer. Unfortunately, life on the run proves harder than she anticipated—until Declan takes a leap of faith on her. But even as Trina starts to see beyond his gruff exterior, she can’t relax, even for a moment. Not with her husband still tracking her down. What Trina doesn’t know is that in Declan, she has a powerful ally—and, if she would only follow her heart, a devoted lover.

Stacey Lynn is a simple girl, raised most of her life in the MidWest. Perhaps it was the long, frigid winters that left her so bored she had nothing to do but spend time reading every book she could get her hands on from John Grisham and Danielle Steel to Ann M. Martin and CS Lewis. As an avid reader, she began penning poems and short stories long before she reached high school and her love of the written word has never diminished.

Now, as a wife and mother to four children, she finds solace from the craziness of her life by creating steamy, sexy stories that generally tug at your emotions. What began as a hobby and a way to survive a Minnesota winter three years ago and the dream of publishing her first book, has now turned into an unending passion.

Synopsis

From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Money or love? Which would you choose? 

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it’s an easy decision.

For me, it’s not. Did I mention it’s a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Then, he left.

I thought I’d never see him again.

But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

A bevvy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter’s reputation were never far behind.

I didn’t know what to believe.

But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.

At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
