She’s holding out for a happy ever after.Annie
I know where to find my happily ever after—between the pages of a romance novel. It’s why I sell books, why I blog about them, and why I’ll never get disappointed by love.So what if my brother’s best friend from high school is now a bestselling author? Or that he just blew back into town on a Harley, filling out a pair of jeans like he never did before? Or that he’s agreed to do a signing at my bookstore on such short notice? Because despite all his adoring female fans, I kind of hated his book.Wes
The last time I saw Annie Denning, she was a senior in high school, three years older than me and way out of my league.
Now I’m her last-minute date to a wedding, and what started as a night of pure fun has turned into something more real than either of us anticipated.Annie is my muse. When I’m with her, my writer’s block fades away, and the words finally flow.

The only problem? She wants the fairy tale—her very own happily ever after—and anyone who’s read my book knows the truth. I just don’t believe they exist.

goodreads-badge-add-38pxchristie review 5 star aLOVED, LOVED this book!!!! But, it’s really hard for me not to love anything A.J. Pine writes! This one might be my favorite. I mean, it’s about a bookseller/book blogger/reviewer and a romance writer. How could I not love that?

I loved the fact that a male, Wes, was the romance writer! I fell in love with him from the very first pages of the book. He was sexy but had a very charismatic personality too. Annie is a bookseller, but she is also a book blogger. Most women fall at Wes’s feet, but not Annie, at least not at first. She hates the fact that his books don’t always have the HEA she desires. So, as you can imagine, the sparks that fly. What makes it even more interesting is Wes is her brother’s high school best friend. That just adds another dynamic to the story.

I became a fan of A.J. Pine when she first broke my heart and put it back together again in One Night. I have never had characters affect me in such a profound way. What I love about Pine is her ability to write different types of romance, but in every book I have read by her, she makes me fall in love with her story and her characters. If you haven’t read anything by this talented, versatile writer, do yourself a favor and get to know A.J. Pine and her books. I promise you, you will not regret it!!!!

She created the game, but the rules are about to change.

The second I met Will Evans in his three-piece suit with that hot as hell British accent, I wanted him.

That is…until he insulted my shoes and stole my corner office.

Now I have to work side-by-side with the surly British arsehole who just set my career back six months.

It’s fine. That accent won’t get to me, no matter how sexy it sounds when he asks permission to do things professionals shouldn’t do. On the couch. In the corner office I still wish was mine.

Maybe we can’t keep our hands off each other, but I’m sure as hell not falling for a guy who lives an ocean away. Because in six months, he’s leaving for good.

I don’t do broken hearts, but you know what they say…

There’s a first time for everything.

Each book in the Kingston Ale House series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

How far will one man go for the woman he’s loved since high school?

Jamie Kingston has been Brynn Chandler’s best friend since middle school. Only once was their friendship tested—when Brynn gave Jamie a single kiss. Since then, they’ve had an unspoken agreement never to cross that line again, and she’s ready to let go of the past and move on.

But Jamie has loved Brynn for as long as he can remember, and now that he’s ready to tell her, she has her sights set on someone else. Knowing this is his last chance, he asks Brynn to go on a two-week road trip. But their time alone brings old hurts to the surface, and Brynn has to decide if the one that got away lies at the end of the journey or if he’s been by her side all along.

Welcome Home is another great addition to an already fantastic series by Annie Rains. It’s getting to be the time of year for holiday romances, and I loved this one! Allison doesn’t mind being single except during that one time of the year that her relatives, especially her mother, hound her about not being part of a couple. So, this year she has a solution…a pretend boyfriend. She buys herself sexy military man, Troy. The two spend time together in the weeks prior to Christmas Eve to get to know one another better since Allison’s mother is a psychologist who always sees through people’s facades. As they spend more time together, the line between a fake couple and a real one blurs. Will their fake romance become the real thing?

I loved the storyline and the characters! I always enjoy visiting the small town of Seaside, not only meeting new characters but visiting the old ones whom have become my friends. The romance between Allison and Troy does develop somewhat rapidly, but it works in this book. The sexual sparks between these two is HOT!!! Yet, the romance is sweet! As usual, Rains doesn’t just focus on the romance between the two main characters but also their backstories which always makes me feel connected to them.

There is nothing better than a good, magical, feel good Christmas romance, and this one was perfect. It also struck a personal note for me. Not all families are bound by blood, some are bound by the heart. The relationship between Allison and her stepfather reminded me of my own with my stepdad and again reminded me of how lucky I am to have him in my life. Annie Rain’s continues to be one of my favorite writers. She blends steam, romance, and complex characters which results in fantastic reading!!!!

~ Stroked Hard by Meghan Quinn Blog Tour + Review ~

We’re celebrating the release of STROKED HARD! Check out the review and teasers below!


Scheduled to release: November 1, 2016

Sports Romance
Cover Designed by: Indie Solutions by Murphy Rae



He’s hot. Like, stop breathing kind of hot with his killer body, vivid blue eyes, and constant five o’clock shadow.
Did I mention his body?
Watching Hollis Knightly, Olympic diving gold medalist, man-pony specialist—and cocky bastard—stand up on the diving platform in nothing but a small piece of Spandex? Yeah, I’m beguiled.
And easily seduced.
I want to keep things light but he won’t leave me alone. And hell, if he’s not wearing me thin.
What is supposed to be a simple summer fling with a very hot man, has now morphed into a f*cked-up mess of feelings, attachment, and dare I say it…love. But I don’t do relationships. And Hollis Knightly does.






STROKED by Meghan Quinn
Released: July 19, 2016
Cover Designer: Murphy Rae

Reese King: Olympic medalist, underwear model, Greek god.

His body is chiseled from rock, sculpted by the weight room, and refined by water.

On a daily basis his skin is completely bare for everyone to see, tan and defined, only covered up by a minuscule piece of spandex. There is no denying his sex appeal.

I hate to admit it, but I’m head over heels infatuated with him.

There is one HUGE problem though. His achingly gorgeous abs, inked up arm, and cocky swagger belong to my boss, the high-profile, reality star bitch from hell and certified heinous human being, Bellini Chambers.

What I think is going to be an easy job assisting a glorified wench turns into a cluster f*ck of epic proportions.

STROKED LONG by Meghan Quinn
Scheduled to release: September 20, 2016

Sports Romance
Cover Designed by: Indie Solutions by Murphy Rae

From his dirty-blond hair and breathtaking smile, to the abs from heaven and the irresistible V in his waistline, everything about Bodi Olympic-gold-medalist Banks screams hot piece of @$$.
Yet there’s more.
Dark shadows lurk behind his soulful, serious eyes.
I’m enamored. He’s captured me.
How can running an art foundation with Bodi Banks turns into a slow-burning, epic romance, even though he tries to push me away at every chance? How can I stay away from a broken, routine-driven man whose soul cries to be forgiven for a crime only he believes he committed? Or is that a lie?

**STROKED LONG can be read as a stand alone.

Abou the author

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
