The Hacker wrap

BLURB:

HOLDEN

Life is nothing more than a series of 1s and 0s.
Basic choices.
Yes or no.
Fight or flight.
Protect or neglect.
Pack or prey.
Felon or free.
I’ve mastered the art of when to hit 1 and when to hit 0.
Or at least I had before Meena came back into my world.
Now, I’m constantly confused which one to hit.
Somehow she’s hacked my system and rewritten my code to become one of the only people in my life who matters.
One of the only people I wouldn’t hesitate to die for.
Loving her has become an involuntary 1.
Like protecting my children.
Like breathing.

MEENA

Temporary.
Everything in life is just temporary.
Unlike most people, I choose to acknowledge that.
Embrace it.
Make the most of a situation for what it is and then move on.
It makes what I do for a living easier.
It makes dating simple.
Or at least it had before I crossed paths again with the only man who has ever made me crave something permanent.
Too bad Holden wasn’t mine then.
Too bad I can’t be his forever now.
He’ll never completely move on from her.
He’ll never completely let go.
Loving him is a constant I’m trying to shake.
Unfortunately, I’m not sure I ever will.

Christie’s Review

~5 Stars~

The Hacker is another amazing book by Xavier Neal! It’s the second in the Bro Series, and it’s just as good, if not a bit better. Although, I loved Nate, from the first book, The Substitute. Holden is a single father who needs a nanny for his two children. He decides on hiring, Meena. The two know each other from the past, and I won’t go into detail because that would give an important part of the story away. Just know….Meena has always had a thing for him, but she isn’t expecting him to return those feelings. She tells herself she won’t cross the boss/employee line, and Holden tells himself the same thing. Well, as you will see from the very first few pages, that doesn’t last very long. Meena wants more than just his body, she wants his heart. The question is whether he can give himself completely to her, especially when he is hiding secrets…..

Holden and Meena are both multi-layered and complicated characters. I love Meena’s sense of humor, and her ability to love others, especially Holden’s children. I loved the relationship with her family. She is not only beautiful, but she is intelligent and strong! I learned something new with each chapter about Holden. He was incredibly smart which made him even sexier. Add the single father aspect who adores his children, and that just about makes him irresistible. His chemistry with Meena is electric, and as always, Neal makes us all feel that insane chemistry!

Whenever I read a synopsis of one of Neal’s books, I have learned she has the ability to just blow you away. You never know what secrets, twists, and turns she has waiting for you! She is an amazing writer. In this book, she tackles the dark subject of human trafficking, yet she manages to make me laugh and fall in love!

 

Book 1: The Substitute

sub

Nate

Being a substitute teacher is good for me.
It’s sensible.
Logical.
Abandoning my plans for a career in the film industry and a life full of fun, albeit slightly reckless, actions was the responsible thing to do.
That’s who I am now.
That’s who I’ve become.
Mr. Boring. Mr. Predictable. Mr. Anal Retentive.
At least that’s what I thought until one irresistible student breathes life back into the version of me I’ve been desperately trying to suffocate.
Being with Ainsley isn’t a want. It’s a need.
And I’m willing do anything to fulfill it.

Ainsley

I’ve spent my entire life ashamed of who I am.
Who my mother is. What she does.
Being forced to attend a private school where people endlessly whisper about it is only bearable because I know exactly what’s in my future.
I know exactly where I’m going.
I know exactly what to do to get there.
Or at least I thought I did.
One class with him and suddenly my entire world was missing one very important piece.
Being with Nate isn’t just about sex.
It’s about loving life in a way I never imagined.
The situation isn’t ideal, but I’ll do whatever it takes to be with him.

Christie’s Review

~5 Sexy Stars~

ALL-TIME FAVORITE & FAVORITE OF 2017

Show Me the Way by A.L. Jackson is not only one of my favorite reads for 2017 but one of my all-time reads!!!! It is the first book in a new series that promises to be PHENOMENAL! Rex and Rynna are two damaged souls who have built walls around their hearts, only letting precious few close.

Rynna left her small hometown and her beloved grandmother when she was just 17. She promised herself never to return, but all that changes when her grandmother passes away. Rynna is back in her childhood home and trying to re-open her grandmother’s restaurant. She amazed me. She came back to a town that held her “best and worst memories.” She is also a different woman, brave and courageous, not like the hurt and scared girl that fled years before. She will need all that courage to deal with her angry, sexy neighbor, Rex.

To say Rex is closed off is putting it mildly. He has his mother, a few close friends, and most importantly, his daughter, Frankie Leigh. Frankie Leigh is who he lives for. But the first time he sees Rynna, she throws him off kilter. He is completely drawn to her, but he is angry about it. He is about as rude as you can be to her. Rynna is not so easily brushed off. She is captivated by Rex and Frankie. For every rude gesture, she has a kind one. She continues chiseling away the walls of his heart. He is an enigma to her…cold and hard, yet so kind and loving to his daughter. She has decided to take her late grandmother’s advice:

 

“All moments matter. We just rarely know how important they are until the chance to act on them has already passed.”

 

She refused to give up on Rex, and thank goodness, she doesn’t.

I loved the romance and chemistry of this couple. But, oh my gosh, that was just the icing on the cake. There was some mystery about what happened to them in their pasts. But, it was two special relationships that just stole my heart. The relationship between Rynna and her grandmother was just so wonderful. It brought tears to my eyes because it reminded me of my own grandmother who helped raise me. Her personality still came through the book even though she had passed away. She guided her or as the title indicates, “showed her the way to happiness,” just as Rynna did for Rex. One of the most precious relationships was the one between Rex and his Frankie. OMG….it made him even more irresistible. There are so many books about single mothers, so I was glad to see one about single fathers. Jackson illustrated that fathers are just as capable of raising children and face the same challenges as single mothers do.

I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this book! Just be prepared to not do anything else until you finish the most wonderful book. Looking forward to more in the series.

Jane Doe Scarlett - BOOK(1)

ScarletStainCoverOptions2 

Left as a newborn to die in a dumpster, she has no name.

 

Tossed from state run orphanages to a string of foster homes, she has no family.

 

Growing up hard, fast and street smart, she’s accomplished in hand to hand combat and accurate with a gun. With no money for college, she enlisted in the US Marine Corps out of high school and was quickly plucked from her unit when her sharp shooting and intellectual skills outshined her male counterparts.

 

With no known past, she is deemed a perfect fit to a task force Washington denies exists.

 A selective assassin for the United States government, Jane Doe tracks known terrorists on domestic soil.

 

Dispatched to Atlanta, Georgia with a kill assignment, Jane is tracking number Thirteen on The List. Her cover is secure in the library where she volunteers and her identity quiet until a journalist shows up on a tip to research a name and number she knows well—Three.

 

Now she’ll be forced to choose between the target she desperately wants to eliminate for personal reasons and the assignment she’s been given, all while keeping the reporter from getting himself killed or worse, falling for Jane.

 Possessing a fertile imagination and a penchant for executing improvised but brilliant plans, Jane is a killing machine with ice running through her veins. Every time she goes to a different town, two things are certain: she’ll have a new name and someone is going to die.

After leaving Atlanta and reporter Matt Matthews behind, Jane takes her next kill assignment in New York City. A terrorist plot so out of the realm of the ordinary, Jane expects to debunk the tip she’s been given and report back to Washington for another assignment. But when she discovers the plan unfolding for Times Square is real, she knows there’s only one mastermind who could plan and execute such a heinous act—Three.

                   

Now with help from NYPD’s Counter-terrorism team, Jane has the chance to partner with the head of their Archangel Package, Kelly Casey. But, Sergeant Casey has more than just information on her kill assignment and the man she’s been tracking for over a year. He could hold the keys to what she’s been searching for.

 Matt Matthews is in New York finding his way back to three things: his true identity, his family’s war profiteering empire and the woman he lost in Atlanta—Scarlett.

As the clock ticks away, Jane must find a way to stop the attack and end the life of one man before he takes the lives of thousands.

All or Nothing an all-new, steamy MM romance by Felice Stevens is available NOW!

AllOrNothing-400x600

All or Nothing

 

by Felice Stevens

 

Publication Date: October 3rd, 2017

 

Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

A past he couldn’t forget

Adam Barton is living his dream of working as a firefighter in his small Texas town, but a tragedy from his youth continues to haunt him. He decides New York City is the perfect place to start a new life and joins the FDNY, living and loving his own way—no strings and nothing personal. Until he catches sight of Rico Estevez, the sexy chef with the mysterious smile who rocks his world. After one explosive night together, Adam craves another….And then another. The more he and Rico are together, the more Adam wants him.

A future he never imagined

Rico Estevez is living a lie. For years he’s hidden his sexuality, afraid to hurt the career of his politically ambitious father. He’s the perfect American―the best schools, top of his class and most importantly, to his father, a successful businessman. Who needs a boyfriend when sex is so easy to find? Starting a torrid love affair with Adam Barton isn’t a problem; neither one is looking toward forever. But Rico’s father is about to get the chance of a lifetime and Rico feels forced to play by his rules.

Rules are made to be broken

Adam proves more unforgettable than Rico ever imagines, but he gives in to family pressures above personal desire. When a fire reunites them, both men discover their passion for each other hasn’t died; rather it’s stronger than ever. Want turns to need and something more dangerous to their hearts—love. Adam and Rico know if they want to have it all, they can let no one and nothing stand in their way of a life together.

Excerpt:

“I don’t know why it’s been so hard to forget this. I should become numb to it like the other guys.”

“That’s not who you are. You care about people. It’s why you do your job so well.”

Surprised at Rico’s insight, Adam gave him a shy smile. “I didn’t think you noticed.”

“I noticed.”

The song ended, yet they remained on the dance floor, with Rico half-hidden in the shadows, silent yet with a presence so overpowering, Adam couldn’t help but be drawn to him. Rico reached up, grasped the nape of his neck, and pressed their mouths together, and as always, it took only the touch of those firm lips to crumble his defenses. They remained on the dance floor, kissing until the sound of whistles and clapping brought Adam back to reality.

Shrugging it off, Rico took his hand, and they returned to the bar, where their burgers awaited them. That revelation by Rico had shaken Adam, and he chewed and swallowed his food, sneaking sideways glances at Rico, frustrated at his inability to gain any sense of Rico’s thoughts behind that neutral mask.

“So how long have you two been dating?” Dale wiped up the counter, getting rid of their empty plates.

Holding his breath, Adam waited for Rico to answer.

“It’s not like that. We’re friends.”

“Yeah.” Adam gave Dale a weak grin, but by the bartender’s dubious expression and quirked dark brow, Rico’s explanation didn’t go far toward convincing Dale.

“Whatever you say, Rico.” He set a fresh foamy glass of beer in front of each of them. “Here’s to your kind of friendship. I’d like to find it for myself.”

“I need to settle the check. Here’s my card.” Rico scowled and flicked the card over to Dale, then took a long drink, finishing half his beer in one gulp. Not once had he looked at Adam since they’d sat down from dancing.

Unsure what to do or say, Adam sat quietly and finished off his drink while Rico signed the receipt. When Rico got up to leave, Adam followed his lead and shook Dale’s hand.

“Thanks for everything.”

“No, thank you. And take care of him. He’s kind of a mess.”

“You coming?” Rico’s face was a storm of emotions.

Without responding to Dale, Adam hurried outside to join Rico, who’d already left. “Rico, wait up.”

Rico halted and turned, his face no less dark than earlier, but Adam recalled his words on the dance floor.

“Uh, thanks for dinner. Do you want—”

“Come back with me?” Rico crowded close, his breath smelling sharp from the beer, and Adam wanted to taste his tongue. “Spend the night?”

While in Leary’s, Adam hadn’t been certain he’d be invited back to Rico’s, but he wasn’t about to question his luck right now.

“Yeah, if you want.”

Rico ran his nose down Adam’s cheek, and goosebumps prickled up his arms despite the warmth of the evening.

“I want,” Rico whispered. “I want you.”

AllorNothing-Teaser1

About Felice:

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, My characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love, but getting there is oh so fun and oh so sexy.

I live in New York City with my husband and two children. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass (or two of red wine). I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there are bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

Jeremiah (Drake Brothers, Book 2) by Casey Peeler Release Blitz With Excerpt

6 Oct

 

 

 

 

Jeremiah Drake is good with his hands, and has taken on the responsibility of Mayes’ Body Shop. However, when a badass beauty named Landry is put in charge of the shop, Jeremiah is caught off guard by her beauty, but more importantly how she is under the hood.

 

“I’m gonna go see who the fuck that was walkin’ in Mr. Mayes’ office,” I say to him as I wipe my hands on the rag and toss it on the work table. Standing outside his office door, I see the same blonde sitting behind his dusty desk with a look of disgust on her face. Quickly, I knock on the door. She pauses and looks up. Without waiting for a reply, I turn the knob and walk in.

“Ma’am, is there something I can help ya with?” I question, trying my best to be polite.

She looks at me, rolls her eyes, and basically tells me to fuck off without opening her mouth, and all that has me wanting to do is turn her over my damn knee and spank her nice little ass.

“Excuse me?” she says with an abundance of attitude.

“I said can I help you? Mr. Mayes isn’t here, so maybe I can help you with what you need.”

She begins to laugh and it pisses me off.

 

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.

Lustful Lies (A Lustful Trilogy) by Maggie Adams Blog Tour with Excerpt

6 Oct

 

BLOG TOUR

AVAILABLE NOW!!

 

 

TITLE: Lustful Lies

AUTHOR: Maggie Adams

COVER DESIGNER: Designs by Wes Nemo

RELEASE DATE: Sept 26, 2017

 

In the beginning, it was good…

That’s how I look back on this time in my life. In my sexual prime, a widow escaping the mundane, seeking the darker art of romance. Romance? Ha! It was an obsession, a compulsion to discover the sensual being hidden for so many years.

I was a fool.

I ran rampant with the fever of sexual discovery, from submission to Dominance, edge play to slavery, I was willing to try it all. I would seek out willing participants in debauchery from online sex sites to chat forums. It didn’t matter. It was safe to play online, to meet in groups of like-minded people intent on pleasure.

Or so I thought.

When drugs and alcohol make the mind blurry and the hands unsteady, someone could get hurt. When the highs of pleasure can go no higher, when slavery and edge play take on dangerous thrills for the Dominant and frightening scenarios for the submissive, it is time to safe word out. So, I did.

But no one listened.

Now I must live with the consequences. I must decide to run away or face the challenge before me. I must discern the truth from the lustful lies.

 

 

Vegas was a bust, my dear Diary,

Too many authors vying for the attention of readers. The only thing good to come out of it was meeting Anne Gordon and her husband, John. She was my table partner, a best-selling erotic author, from rural Kansas, and funny as hell. She was also a girly-girl like me, and dressed for her sexy persona in a corset and mini skirt. I sort of wondered if she was wearing panties. John was quiet, sort of intense. He kept staring at me. It unnerved me and yet aroused me. And his hands…. God, they were fuckin’ fabulous. Long, strong and tan. I got wet just staring at them.

She asked me to dinner with them and I accepted. After two bottles of wine, we were all feeling a bit buzzed as we headed back to the hotel. John suggested a nightcap to celebrate their anniversary. I congratulated them and made noises about not getting them a gift. He said he had some fabulous Scotch in their room and we could discuss this “gift” there. I laughed and thought, what the hell, although I had no idea what he was talking about.

I toasted the happy couple and asked if they had gotten any special presents for each other. They shared a look and Anne replied that they wanted to fulfill a fantasy of a threesome with a call girl, but they both didn’t care of the anonymity of that.

This is where I choked on my Scotch.

John took the glass from me, cupped my face with his big hands and kissed me. God, he was a good kisser. His tongue twirled and lips pulled at mine. I was drowning and I didn’t care that his wife watched. When the kiss ended, I blinked and Anne stood before me, naked. “We read your article on How to Undress a Man. Let’s put it into action.”

John stepped back and Anne came into my space, her hands cupped my breasts through my silk blouse as she kissed me. Her lips were soft and light, but just as arousing. I felt my panties dampen. She stepped back and I looked at her. “Yes?” she whispered.

I don’t know if it was the wine or the ache of loneliness, but I didn’t think. I simply replied, “Yes.”

An Excerpt from the Book

Take an inside look at First Crush, Last Love with this enticing excerpt.
Jessie flipped on the foyer light and her nerves relaxed until she saw the rug at the bottom of the stairs. It was askew. Her eyes darted over the space in front of her. Everything else was in its proper place. Besides the inability to pick faithful husbands, she and her mother shared the rarely appreciated trait of compulsive neatness.
She thought back to when she had left the house earlier. Maybe in her haste to meet Sarah, her foot had slid the rug out of place as she came down the stairs. But she would have straightened it. Unless she didn’t notice . . . but she would have noticed . . . because that’s how she was.
She inched into the kitchen and picked up the phone. She’d call the police and ask them to search the house. Because of a cockeyed rug? Even in her paranoid state, she knew it would sound crazy. Their first question would be, “How much did you have to drink tonight, Ms. Baxter?”
She shook her head. For all the bravado she showed in front of Lee, here she was acting like a scared twelve-year-old, alone for the first time while her parents were on a date night. Her mom had offered to cancel her trip to London when Jessie told her the date of the class reunion, but Jessie had insisted she go. Since retirement, these trips had become her mom’s main source of entertainment.
She rummaged in her purse until her fingers found her pepper spray. With the canister at arm’s length, she circled each room on the first floor, testing the locks on the windows. Everything seemed in order. She let out a breath and grasped the banister leading upstairs with her free hand while her foot straightened the rug.
The steps to the second floor creaked under Jessie’s weight. She shuddered at the eerie feeling the empty house gave off. Still clutching the pepper spray, she checked the windows upstairs before collapsing on the bed in her childhood room. The house was too big for one person. She didn’t know how her mom stood it. Maybe tomorrow she’d move to Sarah’s. They could have a slumber party like old times.
Old times. Lee Archer. Wow. Her smile turned into a yawn. Something itched at the back of her mind, but after seven hours in a car and a few more in the bars, she gave into heavy eyelids and fell into an uneasy sleep.
At three in the morning, her eyes flew open and she clutched the comforter to her chin.
Underwear. A pair of lacy, black underwear hung from the top rail of the desk’s chair. No way in hell had she done that.

About Elizabeth McKenna

Elizabeth McKenna

Elizabeth McKenna works as a full-time technical writer/editor for a large software company. Though her love of books reaches back to her childhood, she had never read romance novels until one Christmas when her sister gave her the latest bestseller by Nora Roberts. She was hooked from page one (actually, she admits it was the first love scene).
She had always wanted to write fiction, so she combined her love of history, romance and a happy ending to write Cera’s Place and Venice in the Moonlight. Her short story, The Gypsy Casts a Spell, is available for free on her website http://elizabethmckenna.com/. She hopes you will enjoy her first contemporary romance novel, First Crush Last Love, as much as others have enjoyed her historical romances.
Elizabeth lives in Wisconsin with her understanding husband, two beautiful daughters, and a sassy Labrador. When she isn’t writing, working, or being a mom, she’s sleeping.
