****THIS IS A MUST READ****

***TOP TEN READ FOR ME***

Holy cow! What a read from L.B. Dunbar! I was actually hooked from the synopsis, I don’t think that has ever happened to me before! Who wouldn’t be intrigued with lines like these:

 

“One deserted island. Two heinous crimes. Two convicted hearts.”

“When decent people do bad things, there only one place for forgiveness: Redemption Island.”

 

Dunbar is 100% correct when she says this is no vacation or a fantasy! Tack and Juliet have been sent to an island as part of a social experiment. The twist is that each were told they would be the only one on the island. They will eventually realize the other one is there, and that is when Dunbar will have you in her clutches. You won’t come up for air until you are finished. That is all I’m going to say….anything else will give away the plot!

The book is about Juliet and Tack and their incredibly complicated relationship. At times, this book was incredibly tough to read. I’m not always a fan of dark romances, but L. B. Dunbar is one of my all-time favorite writers. Naturally, I had to read it, and I’m so glad I did. I was mad, and I was sad. Dunbar made re-think the way I think about certain things. She took something that was dark and hopeless and turned it into a story of, as the title says, redemption and hope. I am truly at a loss of words. I knew when I read her for the very first time that she was a talented writer. It doesn’t matter what she’s writing, rock star, contemporary, paranormal, and now dark romance, she will take control of your emotions. She makes me “think” while I’m reading one of her books, and by the time I’m done, she makes me feel like I’m a part of the book. Every single thing she writes, she makes it her own. This one was no different! The ending….WOW! I’m HIGHLY ANTICIPATING the next book in the series. This is one of the most thought-provoking books I have ever read!

Mechanic (Dirty Men) by Amber Bardan Release Blitz

 

 

 

 

There was one girl Michael knew like no other.
Her good side and her wicked.
Gabriella ran from her past and her shame. She turned from the part of herself that got the person she loved most into terrible trouble.
It’s been so long now, it’s like that past no longer exists.
When Michael sees Gabriella after a decade, the one thing he doesn’t expect is that she’d have no idea who he is.
But Gabriella always liked to play dirty.
So what if he has to use his skills as a Mechanic to tamper with her engine?
He’ll use every tool in his toolbox to remind her who he is and make sure she never forgets again.

 

 

 

 


After spending years imagining fictional adventures, Amber finally found a way to turn daydreaming into a productive habit. She now spends her time in a coffee-fuelled adrenaline haze, writing romance with a thriller edge.

She lives with her husband and children in semi-rural Australia, where if she peers outside at the right moment she might just see a kangaroo bounce by.

Amber is an award winning writer, Amazon Bestselling Author, and member of Romance Writers of Australia, Melbourne Romance Writers Guild, and Writers Victoria.

Excerpt

Everett (Drake Brothers Book One) by Casey Peeler Release Blitz


 

 

Everett Drake left the small town life and his three brothers behind the day he was old enough to enlist. However, he returned sooner than he had planned with a chip on his shoulder.

Taking a job with the local beer distributor, he makes a living, but when a new bar owner arrives in town, he knows exactly what he wants—Stella.  

Pulling into Barger’s, the sun is shining and so is Seth’s brand new Camaro. Shaking my head, I put the Dodge in park and step toward my future as a beer truck comes barreling out the back entrance, almost running me over. Turning to see who’s driving, I put my hands on my hips and see dark hair and a set of emerald green eyes on the sexiest man I’ve ever seen and when he smiles my way, I try to act mad but it’s no use. Mental note—stay away from whoever that is.

“Sorry about that, ma’am,” he hollers out the window.

“Damn right, you better be,” I say firmly as he laughs, gives a wave and takes off down the two-lane road.

Casey Peeler grew up in North Carolina and still lives there with her husband and daughter.

Growing up Casey wasn’t an avid reader or writer, but after reading Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston during her senior year of high school, and multiple Nicholas Sparks’ novels, she found a hidden love and appreciation for reading.  That love ignited the passion for writing several years later, and her writing style combines real life scenarios with morals and values teenagers need in their daily lives.

When Casey isn’t writing, you can find her near a body of water listening to country music with a cold beverage and a great book.

Taming Mr. Flirt by A.M. Madden & Joanne Schwehm

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing Date: September 12th, 2017

Here’s a tip: never say never.

It all started in a barn, rolling around in the hay with a hot brunette. When I hooked up at my best friend’s wedding with the bride’s best friend, I had hay in places it should never be. And how my bowtie ended up around my dick was an entirely different story. I’ll give you a minute to consider the possibilities.

That first romp set the tone, and each sexual encounter with her that followed became more intense. The fact that all my fantastic orgasms were coming at the hand of one woman baffled me.

A lifetime of observation taught me that monogamy equated to boredom. Variety was the spice of life, in and out of the bedroom. I enjoyed the company of a sexy, smart, confident woman. It was my kryptonite. I was a master flirt, and my sexual skills were unrivaled.

Until her.

With this woman, I had met my match.

Her carnal appetite a perfect match for mine, and she also taught me a few things along the way.

She called me Mr. Flirt, and could bring me to my knees at every turn.

Lesson learned: Sex always trumps sanity.

Excerpt

We both stood staring at the hay strewn all around the barn. “That looks very scratchy,” Vanessa said with a frown.

“Allow me.” I removed my monkey-suit jacket and spread it over a mound of hay that was closest to us. A quick glance toward the door ensured we were out of sight if someone were to walk in. “Better?” With an enthusiastic nod, Vanessa lowered herself on my jacket, rested on her bent elbows, and stared up at me. I looked down at her and considered all the things I could do to her with my tongue. “That dress looks amazing on you, but I bet having it pushed up around your waist would make it look even better. I can’t wait to see if there’s a thong under it or lace panties. I’m a thong guy.”

“You talk a lot. Are you just going to flirt with me or are we going to put this hay to good use? You owe me an orgasm.”

“Oh, you’ll get one. Trust me.” My dick was in agreement as it came to life in my pants. Poor thing had struggled throughout the entire ceremony.

With each look and smile Vanessa gave me, my cock responded. There were a few times I had to glance at Brae’s great aunt Myrtle just to calm him down. But now, there was no calming down in his future.

There wasn’t anything romantic about this encounter, then again she didn’t seem to be into that bullshit. Neither was I, and that was what made our connection perfect.

___DUMOND-CLIENTebook copy  

A new steamy standalone Romantic Comedy from USA Today bestselling author Pamela DuMond.

 

Charlotte: I was an assistant at a Matchmaking Agency living on Insta-Ramen, hope, and dreams. How was it possible that I made a love match that resulted in the society marriage and decadent wedding reception of the year?

 

 

Joe: As heir to the Delacroix dynasty, I avoided society affairs like the plague. I hit the reception to drop off a bottle of Scotch. I didn’t plan on colliding with the sexy, pretty woman with the pouty lips. Certainly, didn’t intend to spill liquor all over her dress. 

 

 Charlotte: What kind of jerk spills Scotch all over… I glared up at the tuxedo-clad brick wall of a man holding the serving tray, and went weak in the knees. He was the most smoking hot waiter I’d ever seen.

 

 

Joe: I was an honorable man, always cleaned up my messes. But every press of the napkin against Charlotte’s gown filled my brain with filthy, dirty thoughts.

 

 

Charlotte: Hot Waiter was practically feeling me up in the middle of the ballroom. Worse? I was enjoying it. Hang on. Wait just one minute – he’s my new CLIENT?  Fine, I’d work with the gorgeous jerk. But I didn’t care how hot he was – I would never. Ever. Sleep with him.   

 

 

Joe: My grandmother hired Pouty Lips to be my Matchmaker? Oh yeah — I was totally going to sleep with Charlotte…

 

 

GAME ON…

Let the Dead Lie
He wanted her, they needed her, but loving them may cost her everything…
A widower with four adopted daughters, Emmit McKay likes to keep a handle on things. But nothing can prepare the former FBI sharpshooter for the battles coming to his small hometown. Especially the one which arrives in such a tempting package.
Savannah Walker moves to Blue Creek to take over as principal of the school Emmit’s daughters attend. With a masters’ degree in education and a no-nonsense attitude, she is caught off guard by the behavior of the McKay girls and never expects to fall in love with them—or in lust with their father. But her intimacy with the family stirs up rumors and unearths secrets.
Savannah and Emmit cannot deny the chemistry which draws them together, but the closer they get, the more dangerous the stakes become. When a murderer is hidden amongst you, you can’t let the dead lie.

An Excerpt from the Book

Take an inside look at Let the Dead Lie. Read this sizzling excerpt from the book.
The new principal took his breath away. She had creamy skin, golden-brown hair, and eyes that shone like sapphires. She was small and slender but had curves he couldn’t miss. She was almost the exact opposite of Gracie, who had been both model slim and tall. Emmit knew he was staring, but he wasn’t the only one.
“Pops, what’s the matter witcha?” Fletcher wanted to know, jumping out of Casey’s lap and moving toward him, sizing him up. “You’s ain’t sick, are yah?”
Emmit shook his head to clear it. He glanced back at Principal Walker as she, too, became aware of the girls once again. He tweaked Fletcher’s nose.
“Nah, kiddo, I’m fine, just fine,” he said as the principal held out her hand.
“Mr. McKay, I presume, I’m Savan…um, Principal Walker. Sorry you had to come out here,” she said and after one brief shake, dropped his hand.
“Ma’am. Well, you being the new principal and all, we were bound to meet sooner or later.” He almost smiled, then motioned to his girls. “Who wants to explain to me what happened this time?” He looked from one guilty face to another. Feet shuffled and hands clasped.
“Daddy, it was all a big misunderstanding. Things were said, and then one thing led to another, and well, here we are,” Alexandra explained in the wispy voice he knew she’d been practicing in the mirror.
Great read that keeps you guessing from beginning to end. Couldn’t put it down!
