AP new - synopsis.jpg

.
Empty inside, cold in his heart, Zef turned to whisky and drugs to fill the void.

Instead, he ended up with a prison sentence and a new determination to get clean and make something of his life.

Since his release, Zef has been on the road, finding his spiritual home with a traveling carnival and working as a motorcycle stunt rider.

Live fast, live hard, keep moving.

He doesn’t want to be tied down to anyone or anything. Fiercely loyal, the only people he cares about are his brother and his carnie family.

Until a crazy girl who’s run away to join the circus crashes into his world.
But now his old life is catching up with him, and Zef has to choose a new road.

A standalone story, and the last one in the TRAVELING SERIES.

SYNOPSIS

You’ve heard this story before. Woman feels her biological clock ticking and gets someone to knock her up.

Not for love, for baby.

Crazy, right?

That’s what I thought.

Then I found out my fiancé had a vasectomy. The life I thought I had? Nope. Suddenly I’m 33, and I don’t even have a kissing buddy.

When my mom’s health takes a turn and I wind up back in my hometown of Fate, Alabama, I tell myself to leave things up to…well, you know.

Then I see Gabriel McKellan. He’s Fate’s most famous son, a bestselling author who is beautiful, complicated, and living just below me. In addition to his plus-sized brain, Gabe’s well-endowed in other ways, and great in bed to boot. I would know. He’s my ex husband.

When I suggest The Plan, I don’t imagine that he’ll take the bait. It’s been ten years, and we don’t work. But Fate has other plans for both of us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

EXCERPT

I veer into the bushes, heading across the lawn toward the home’s rear right, where there’s supposed to be a staircase tacked onto the house’s back side.


“Not your walkway,” he says coolly.


“Figured that out,” I snap over my shoulder.


Hurt stings my cheeks and neck, prickles tears in my eyes. I whirl. “You are such an asshole! Always were. The biggest jerk in our class!”


“What was it, then, Marley?” He takes a long stride down the walkway toward me. “Oh, wait, I remember.” He looks pointedly down, and then back up at me with those electric eyes—and I know what he’s meaning.


“Jesus—you’re a pig!”


He smirks. “Only for you.”


“Fuck off.”


With those ungraceful words, I march toward the house I’m sharing with my ex-husband.

A Real Man (Volume 6) by Jenika Snow Release Day

 

 

 

 

Box set includes:

Book 13: Mine

That one word has never meant so much.

JANA

Ballet was my life, but after getting injured, that dream faded. I still needed fast money, so I sucked up my pride and decided to strip.

Clubs could use a virgin stripper, right?

But from the moment I saw Cole Savage, owner of the strip club I was trying to get in to, all rational thought left me.
He was dark and dangerous, and his personality screamed arrogance.

I wanted him, and by the way he looked at me, I knew he wanted me as well.

But I should keep it strictly business. That’s what I told myself anyway.

COLE

From the moment I first saw Jana, I wanted her. She needed a job at my club, but the possessive side of me rose up, demanding she was only mine. I might have just met her, but I was already so damn territorial of her.

If she wanted a job, I’d give her one, but she’d be keeping her clothes on.

I’d been celibate for years, but it was time to change that with her..

Jana would soon realize what it meant to be mine.


Warning: This is a short story featuring an over-the-top possessive hero who makes no secret that the heroine is his. It’s got dirty dancing, raunchy scenes, but is safe and has the Happily Ever After that comes with reading a Real Man story.



 

Book 14: Alpha Male

LAYLA

For the last two years Lachlan has been my personal bodyguard. Although I don’t feel in danger and don’t need someone constantly watching me, because it’s Lachlan, I can’t help but feel safe.

I love him.

He is big and strong, with training that makes him deadly. Anyone who is stupid enough to cross him learns that swiftly.
But I’m too afraid to tell him how much I want him. I’m too afraid to tell him that I crave him.

LACHLAN

I was hired to be her bodyguard, to make sure she was safe because her father is a senator. But even if her father hadn’t hired me, I wouldn’t have been able to leave her alone.

I love her, want her as mine, and I need to show Layla that she was meant for me.

I need to show her that if anyone looks at her, speaks to her, or thinks they have a right to touch her, I’ll lay them out and not think twice.

She is my world, and no one but me will have her.

I’m done waiting. It’s time I make Layla mine.


Warning: Have a neck brace on hand because this story will give you whiplash.. It’s short and to the point, but that’s how we like them. It’s not lacking in the heat department, has an over-the-top alpha hero, and a sweet virgin heroine. No worries, though; you get a safe read with a Happily Ever After and some baby making in the process.



 

Book 15: Animal

Being bad never felt so good.


RYE

I’d been called bad, dangerous … a criminal. And I didn’t deny it. Everyone knew it, especially the one woman I wanted but couldn’t have.

I should’ve stayed away, should’ve left her alone. Jessa was the daughter of my business partner, too young for me, too innocent.

But I wanted her in the worst of ways, and no amount of self-control could keep me from her.

I wanted to claim every part of her, make her know what it was like to have a real man between her thighs.

And I’d have her.


JESSA

He was older than me, dangerous, masculine in the best of ways. I saw how he watched me, the looks he gave me when he thought I wasn’t paying attention.

Rye wanted me, even if he’d never do anything about it.

I was just the virgin daughter of his business partner, not someone he’d ever get involved with. But that didn’t stop me from lusting after him, from picturing his big body over mine, his hands touching me until I cried out for more.

But I was tired of waiting. I would make the first move, and damn the consequences.


Warning: The hero of this story might seem like the “bad guy,” but no fears because it’s a safe read, there isn’t any OW drama, and he only has eyes for one woman. It’s a hot and dirty story, short and to the point, and exactly what you’ve come to expect in the Real Man series.

A temporary reunion…

 

Newly jobless and adrift, former investment banker Kerri Wilson travels to Virginia to see her best friend and regroup, only to run into billionaire playboy Ethan Lloyd. It’s been years since she’s snuck out of his bed after the most amazing sex of her life, and he’s so not her type–she likes them tall, dark and manageable. But he’s too hot to resist, and she succumbs to another sizzling, no-strings-attached (or so she thinks) night.

 

Unwilling to let her go this time, Ethan makes a simple proposition: a job, a place to stay, and an exclusive affair that will end when either of them finds someone else. But with her dark, painful past catching up to her, Kerri may have to bolt again–even though her heart is telling her to stay. And Ethan’s not giving her up without fighting to make their “temporary” arrangement something far more permanent…

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

****4 STARS****

Great, enjoyable mystery with a bit of romance thrown in! Bonnie shows up at the Starlight Diner looking for her friend, Esther. Bonnie is running, and Esther is the only person she can trust. When she finds out that Esther isn’t there, she has to lean on Mona, the owner of the restaurant, and Jimmy the cocky news reporter she meets. When Nick, a security officer enters her life, she will have to determine who she can trust. Not everyone is who they appear to be!

Both the plot and the characters combined together made this such an addictive read. Cox does a fantastic job of building the mystery of what Bonnie is running from and who is after her. One of the most endearing aspects of the book are the characters. Each is complex, even the secondary characters. Each fills an important part of the story. I loved Jimmy from the very beginning even though he comes across as brash and arrogant. Bonnie appears tough, but she does have a very vulnerable side which is illustrated as the story continues. Each character plays a part in helping her re-build her life.

I didn’t read the first book in the series, but I didn’t feel like I had missed anything. Cox gives us details of earlier characters that filled in any blank parts from the first book. Some deeper issues are discussed such as what family means. Sometimes you find out that family is the people you choose to have in your life, not necessarily the one you were born into. I highly recommend reading if you are looking for a smart, witty book with unforgettable characters!

El Santo by M. Robinson Blog Tour With Review & Giveaway

EL SANTO BLOG TOUR

FROM USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR M. ROBINSON

I didn’t know darkness and evil lurked inside me until I had to murder in order to survive. Forced to become my own worst enemy. With so much blood on my hands, I was surprised I could still see my own skin.
I killed.
I tortured.
I loved…
I played God while I was rotting in Hell. Thriving on control and power was the only way I knew how to live. There were no other options.
If you weren’t my friend, you were my foe.
If you weren’t with me, you were against me.
Traitors, as I called them. There were no imaginary lines. I’d crossed them all. No boundaries. No second chances. No redemption.
Not for me.
For them.
For anyone.
Only for her…
She loved me. Always convinced I was a saint, never believing I was just another sinner.
A fucking monster.

Until it was too late.

Except, I didn’t choose this life.
It. Chose. Me.

 

 

Oh man…. M. Robinson did it AGAIN! I’m going to keep this review short because I don’t want to give anything away. If you haven’t read anything from M. Roboinson yet, you’re missing out on some amazing stories!

I know this doesn’t give you much, but I really don’t know what else to say. I could sit here and tell you that this is one of the most phenomenal stories I’ve read. I could tell you that M. Robinson’s writing is one that you will never forget. I could also tell you that once you read this book, you’ll never be the same. But I could keep going on and on and on about how amazing this story is. But me telling you all of this doesn’t really do this book justice at all. If you want to experience how emotional and a roller coaster of amazing this book is, then you need to go and pick up your copy now!

Bad at Love by Karina Halle Blog Tour with Excerpt and Review

SBPRBanner-BadAtLove-BT.jpg

Bad at Love by Karina Halle

 

Release Date: November 16th

 

Bad at Love, an all-new contemporary STANDALONE by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is LIVE!!!

Bad-at-Love-print-FOR-WEB

She’s bad at love, but he’s even worse…

Marina is hot, blonde, and wickedly smart, but when it comes to men? She’s hopeless. Between her quirks and her lack of filter, there isn’t a man in Los Angeles that will stick around after the third date.

Her handsome, charming friend Lazarus has the opposite problem. Everyone wants to be his girlfriend, but he gets bored and moves on quickly.

There’s only one way to figure out why neither of them has cracked this love thing– they’ll date each other. On paper, it’s the perfect experiment. But in reality, things between Marina and Laz get complicated quickly.

They might be bad at love, but they are even worse at being friends.

Excerpt:

The place is called Tanner Smiths and is one of those trendy bars with a prohibition theme. It’s packed and dark and there’s a small dancefloor by the door so that when you walk in, you’re sucked into a group of people grooving all up in your space. Beyonce blares from the female DJ in the corner and everyone is drunk and happy.

“I approve of the vibe,” I say to Laz.

“What?” he yells back mockingly over the noise, cupping his ear. Then he leans in, close. Very close. “What you havin’ to drink, sweet girl?”

His breath is hot on my ear and I momentarily close my eyes, letting the feeling sink along my skin, down my back, all the way to my toes. “Anything,” I manage to say.

I open my eyes and his face is still at my neck, lips at my ear. “I had no idea you were so easy to please,” he murmurs and I swear his lips are grazing my skin. Goosebumps spread and I’m hot and cold all at once.

My throat feels thick as I speak. “Only when it comes to drinks. Anything else, you might have to work at it.”

“Is that so?” he says, pulling back enough to look me in the eye.

There’s fire inside him. God, how I want to burn.

“We’ll have to see, won’t we?” I tell him.

His languid gaze drops to my lips, his nostrils flaring with impatience.

Fuck, do it, just fucking kiss me.

Kiss me.

Kiss me.

He leans all the way back, gives my hand another squeeze before letting go. “Don’t you dare go anywhere.”

“Bossy,” I comment, my stomach summersaulting like crazy.

“You have no idea,” he says. Then he winks, a bit of a smile, and heads down to the bar to place the order.

I watch him. I watch him and I watch the girls in the bar watching him and I know tonight, tonight he’s mine. I have him.

I’ve never felt so alive before, a swarm of electricity underneath my skin, my heart happy, happy, happy with anticipation, knowing what might finally happen between us.

BadAtLove-AN

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

*****5 STARS*****

5 Stars!!! Absolutely adored this book and the characters! Laz and Marina are TERRIBLE at love. Laz is a serial monogamist, and Marina can’t get past a third date. The two have been friends for years, and they think it will be a great idea to date one another. They decide to go on dates, pretending to be different people, judging each other and finding out what each is doing wrong. Yeah, this isn’t going to get complicated in the least. From the prologue, I already knew there was a connection and an attraction between them, so I knew once they crossed that line, things would never be the same.

Marina was an amazing character, one of my favorite heroines. She is loyal and nurturing, taking care of everyone else. She’s beautiful even if she doesn’t realize it, and as Laz says, she is an “odd duck,” just like him. And, she’s a beekeeper!!!!! All these things combined endeared her to me. I wanted to be Marina’s friend.

Laz is drop dead gorgeous, but it’s his other qualities that make him stand out. He is a poet, and in a band. The man reads Keats for God’s sake! He also has a killer sense of humor. Plus, he is an “odd duck” like Marina is.

I totally loved these two together, and the book was extremely well-written. Not only is it a romance, but there is also a secondary plot involving Laz’s mother, and Halle weaves it seamlessly into the storyline. One of my favorite friends-to-lovers romances but also an important story of family and friendship!
