Star Struck, a sexy, standalone from New York Times Bestseller Laurelin Paige is live!

LPStarStruckBookCover55x825_MEDIUM

She uses her fame as a wall around her heart, and only he can tear it down.

Seth Rafferty knows Heather Wainwright’s type.

Demanding. Check.

Self-important. Check.

Leggy and blonde. Yeah, he knows the drill.

He’s been a Hollywood production designer far too long to have patience for A-listers with a superior attitude. Beautiful women with a chip on their shoulder are a dime a dozen.

Which is why his obsession with Heather makes no sense. Nothing about her is attractive.

Except the vulnerability under the sass. The honesty under the attitude.

So when wrap-party flirting gets carried away, Seth doesn’t stop it from turning into a sizzling night of passion. Too late, he realizes, one night isn’t going to get her out of his system.

On to plan B: uncover the real woman under the diva.

Soon Heather will find out that Seth isn’t just a simple carpenter she can use and lose without consequences. He’ll play the part of the builder, but it’s her walls he intends to break down.

4-and-a-half-stars

Movie star romances aren’t usually my favorite kind of romances, but Laurelin Paige has changed my mind! I really enjoyed this book! Heather Wainwright is an A-list actress who plays the diva really well. She appears to others as self-important and demanding…just like you would expect some Hollywood actresses would be. Seth Rafferty has worked his way up to a Hollywood production designer and is very proud of his accomplishments, but when he meets Heather for the first time she looks down her nose at him since she mistakes him for a carpenter. The two instantly dislike each other, but there is also an awful lot of lust too. They don’t know whether to kiss or kill one another. They two finally give into their lust for a passionate night neither one will soon forget. However, Heather thinks since he is just a carpenter she can just leave him. Oh, how very wrong she is. But, will each of them really trust the other one? What will she do when she finds out who he really is?

Heather is so complicated. At the beginning, I wasn’t her biggest fan. She came across as arrogant and condescending, especially in her early interactions with Seth. But as time went on, I saw that she was just jaded and protective of herself. I started to really feel some empathy for her. When I discovered the kind of childhood she had, no wonder she protected herself behind those steel walls around her heart. I love when a character grows and aren’t the same at the end of the book, and Heather definitely changed! She really did have a heart beating underneath that cold exterior.

Seth was one of my favorites from the very beginning although he kept some things from Heather. He, like Heather, didn’t trust easily because of his past. I can understand his not being honest after first meeting her. She really did play the diva part really well. I loved the fact that he didn’t care about her celebrity status. He cared about the woman underneath all of that. He had to play some games to get to see who Heather really was, and he forced her to deal really look at herself and deal with what she finally discovered about herself. Let me add….this man is something else in the bedroom!!!! WOW! He definitely likes control!

I have to add that I adored Lexie, Heather’s assistant. She really was one of the only people who saw past Heather’s defense mechanisms. She was definitely not afraid to express her opinions to her, and she also didn’t put up with her attitude either.

Star Struck was definitely more than a normal movie star romance. She did a fabulous job of showing her readers the negative aspects of being a star. They are definitely treated differently. Some are definitely adored, but does the public ever really know who they are as individuals? Heather had to hide her past despite it not being her fault because she thought it would impact how people saw her, even though people, in the business and outside, had already labeled her. I would imagine that some movie stars actually live very lonely lives despite being in the public. I think it would be hard to trust others’ motives…are they genuine or are they expecting something from me. So, thank you, Laurelin Paige, for an excellent romance filled with lots of steam (I mean lots!!!! Holy cow!!!!), but at times also sweet! Can’t wait for more!!!!!

About Laurelin Paige:

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

A Little Bit Like Love by Brooke Blaine Release Blitz

 

SBPRBanner-ALBLL-RB

 

A Little Bit Like Love, an all-new sexy STANDALONE MM romance from Brooke Blaine is LIVE!

ALBLL-PRINT-FOR-WEB

A Little Bit Like Love by Brooke Blaine

Publication Date: July 27th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance/MM Romance

What if you had everything in the world you wanted…except the man you’d left behind?

Jackson Davenport, the charismatic, strait-laced heir to the Davenport fortune, has a secret. One he’s been hiding since he graduated from South Haven all-boys academy—and that secret’s name is Lucas.

When a work trip takes Jackson back to his old stomping grounds, memories of the year he shared with Lucas come crashing to the surface. With growing pressure from his father to settle down and take over the family business, Jackson knows he’s on borrowed time, and sets out to find the free-spirited daredevil he once knew.

But Lucas isn’t the same man he was eight years ago.

One night. A shattered heart. And an endless parade of nameless faces. Lucas Sullivan is South Haven’s ultimate playboy, a reputation he’s honed since the only boy he ever loved left without a trace. To the world, he’s brash and confident, an in-demand artist who spends his days designing one-of-a-kind pieces and his nights as king of the downtown scene.

Many have tried and failed to get past the barrier he’s carefully constructed, but it’s the shy, studious boy he once coaxed out of his shell who still haunts him.

Maybe it was a mistake. Maybe it was lust. Or maybe…it was a little bit like love.

About Brooke Blaine:

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

She is the author of Flash Point, a romantic suspense standalone, as well as the co-author of the erotic series, A Desperate Man, with Ella Frank. The latter has scarred her conservative southern family for life, bless their hearts. Licked, a romantic comedy, will be released November 11th, 2015 and is the first in the L.A. Liaisons series.

If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find – just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.

Big Shot - About book

BIG SHOT_Amazon To believe one person can change your destiny sounds absurd. But it happened to me… twice.

Ten years ago I had no idea what I wanted out of life, until I met Hannah Michaels. She was a computer-engineering student ready to conquer the social media world, and I was smitten. Even though I knew she was taken, I had to have her.

Being the big shot that I was, I didn’t let her status stand in my way. It wasn’t long before my hands were on her thighs and my name a whisper on her lips. This smart, sexy girl inspired me to greatness, helped me grow into the kind of man I never knew I wanted to be. The man I am today.

Too bad I hadn’t grown fast enough to keep her.

Moving on wasn’t easy, but I knew I had to let her go. Eventually, I found someone to share my days and nights with, and together we had a daughter. My life was nearly perfect until my world turned upside down.

A single father has challenges, and one of those is learning how to calmly deal with your child coming home in tears. I had no idea the day I pounded on my daughter’s classmate’s door, Hannah would be the one standing on the other side.

The wild, burning desire that rushed through my veins was unwanted, and yet impossible to ignore. Letting her in meant so much more this time around. Guilt hit me like a hammer. I hated myself. I hated her. The problem was I really didn’t hate her—I wanted her more than ever.

But this time around, I can’t have her.

This time it’s my status that stands in our way—and going up against myself just might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

Billionaire Unveiled (The Billionaire’s Obsession: Marcus) by J.S. Scott Release Blitz + Giveaway

What happens when a man you’ve always hated

turns out to be the one who saves you, risking his own life to rescue

you from certain death?

Lines are blurred.

Everything you’ve always thought was true isn’t quite so clear anymore.

Dani

I’ve

always hated Marcus Colter. I have since high school. We antagonize

each other every time we meet, and I thought our dislike was mutual,

until he ends up saving my life on a suicide mission to rescue me from

my captors, men who would have killed me if not for Marcus. Everything

that happens after that successful, crazy, and dangerous mission

confuses me.

Turns out, not only is Marcus incredibly brave,

but he also has a gruff kindness that I never knew existed. His quiet

strength sees me through my pain and fear after he pulls me out of the

danger zone.

I’m not sure what to think of Marcus Colter anymore.

He’s

still the bossy alpha male who drives me crazy, but I eventually

discover that there’s so much more to Marcus than what’s on the surface.

Apparently, I’ve never known the real Marcus Colter.

Maybe nobody does…
