My Sin. Her Redemption.

I'm the man your momma warns you about. The one you never want to meet in a dark alley. 
I fight and protect me, mine, and my own. Take a bullet for anyone I love. No damn job is too gruesome for me. And I’m the most loyal motherf*cker you’ll ever encounter.

I live on the wrong side of the law, and I’m damn proud of it. It's rooted deep in my soul, stems from the scars of my past.

A pool of blood, a lifeless woman, and a missing child lead me into chaos, smack dab in the middle of it. 

Why?

To protect what’s mine. Life has never had perfect timing. My sins and her redemptions are about to collide, leaving me changed forever.

Shame Me Not by Fiona Cole

Cover Design: Najla Qambar Designs
Release Date: July 26, 2017
 

Synopsis

Shame. Panic. Desire. Dominance. Disgust.
All feelings that I was familiar with from the age of sixteen. 
That's when I met Ana. The girl next door who became so much more. Until her, I was alone in the dark desires that I didn't understand, that I couldn't reconcile. My best friend, she accepted me. Helped me see that there was no shame in the things that we both craved. Her submission was a drug, my dominance over her a high that I'd never experienced. When we were together, I was at peace for the first time in my life. But it was too good to last. Our own guilt over our feelings, of our appetite for pain and pleasure, destroyed us. I was convinced that all I needed was a chance, just one more chance to overcome my shame, and Ana would be able to trust me again. If only it were that easy.

 



Where did Fiona Cole come from? 
I'm completely blown away 
by Shame Me Not. 
What a beautiful and captivating story 
about friendship and acknowledging 
your true self.
 Kevin and Ana are just like any other 16 year olds except they hide who they truly are deep down. 
They both wear masks but 
not when they're around one another. 
Kevin and Ana are best friends 
and neighbors. 
They share everything with each other except their hidden desires 
and sexual preferences.

Kevin was amazing. 
I instantly liked him for who he was 
and how he cared for Ana. 
No matter what, he was there for her. 
When he had sex it had to be rough, 
he had to be the one in control. 
To dominate his partner. 
I enjoyed Ana as well. 
She moved to a new town 
and just wanted to fit in. 
Tried to please everyone but only Kevin's friendship mattered. 
All her life she's been the one in charge and making decisions especially 
when it came to her mother. 
Ana was sick of sweet and soft. 
She wanted to be dominated, 
to be cared for. 
When Ana and Kevin both revealed their true dark desires they finally let go. 
It was intense, hard and erotic. 
But still fears and insecurities hid beneath the surface throughout the years.

Shame Me Not spanned over ten years and no matter how strained their friendship or how intense and rough their sexual relationship became they could always 
rely on one another. 
Ana and Kevin's friendship was extraordinary. 
I loved witnessing how it evolved from neighbors to best friends and how 
important they were to each other. 
There were heartbreaking and enthralling scenes that definitely made an impact on me. Kevin thought of himself as a monster when he was young and Ana looked at herself and saw a freak 
when she became an adult. 
She just wanted normal. 
Fiona Cole depicted their struggles, fears and insecurities beautifully. 
The incredibly intense and erotic scenes were mesmerizing. At no point did I dislike Kevin because of how rough he was towards Ana. They trusted each other explicitly.

Shame Me Not was a beautiful romance and love story. Fiona Cole shares a powerful message. To be honest, not hide yourself and communicate. Ana and Kevin made me smile, hurt, swoon and frustrated the hell out of me but their love and trust for one another was epic. 
Shame Me Not was a winner. 
Definitely a must read. 
Wow!

RELEASE BOOST - Baller Made by Rie Warren




Title: Baller Made
Series: Bad Boy Ballers #3
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: July 17, 2017



Blurb

Bad Boy Ballers series finale! Includes an epic novella length epilogue for Rafe and Peyton, Brooklyn and Delaney, and Calder and Reggie!

The dark horse of the NFL. A superstar showgirl on the Vegas strip. Their desire is taboo in ways you can’t even begin to imagine.

Calder Malone. Black sheep. Bad boy. Kicked off the Reno Ravens and almost suspended from the NFL. The sexy center remains a fan favorite now that he’s playing for Carolina Crush. And what Calder wants more than anything is to prove his worth to the team that’s his last chance, the family he disgraced, and the one woman he fell in love with years ago.

Unfortunately the comeback kid isn’t a boy anymore, and the babe he wants was never his for the taking—for reasons that make him question his sanity.

Reggie isn’t just a Vegas showgirl, a pretty face. She’s an Air Force widow, a strong woman who’s piecing her life back together . . . And maybe the man she always thought was out of her league and completely off-limits just became fair game.

Off the field and offstage, what happens when Calder and Reggie don’t stay in Vegas?

Excerpt

I was in a bastard of a mood when the doorbell rang after I’d dropped the two hundred-pound weight onto the rest. My chest burning, my ribs wracked with agony, I curled up to my feet. Thought about a shirt. Thought, fuck it. It was probably just Brooks.
He’d become my watchdog, checking in regularly, inviting me to his place for dinner with him and Delaney, keeping the door open in case I needed to talk to someone other than my sponsor.
Striding through the house, I absentmindedly swiped at the sweat on my chest with the towel I held.
I opened the door.
Wished I hadn’t.
My cock went fully hard in an instant.
I draped the towel in front of me, one hand notched on the doorframe, my chest bare, Reggie’s chin barely reaching my shoulders.
Reggie. On my doorstep. Showing up out of the clear blue.
My lips flattened as my heartbeat thudded in my chest.
Everything that had broken open in that alley with Brooklyn I’d sealed back under. Until this precise moment when Reggie lifted a bag in her hand and a smile on her lips when I was pretty sure I’d never looked more threatening.
“I’ve got some time off. Recuperation.” She angled a leg in tight faded jeans toward me. “Sore tendon. Figured you’d know how to put me back together right as rain with your PT background.”
“Funny.” Hooking the end of the towel into the waistband of my shorts, I rasped my hands across the dark shade of stubble on my jaw, and she watched every goddamn stroke. “You don’t look injured.”
“You do.” Her gaze—challenging—dropped to the bruise on my ribs.
Motherfucker.
“You came to check up on me.”
“So what if I did?” She shrugged one shoulder.
“You don’t have to worry about me anymore.”
“I can’t just turn it off, Calder.”
“I don’t need or want your help.” I tried to maintain the barrier, nearly snarling at her.
She merely cast her eyes beyond me. “Are you going to invite me inside like an old friend should?”
Old friend. Old pain.
I stepped back. Barely.
She ducked under my arm. Smiling.
Closing the door, I sealed my body against it. “What are you really doing here?”
“Well, you said you’d accept my calls.” She dropped her bags. Stood with hands on hips. “You lied to me.”
“It’s what I do, sweetheart.” Determined to piss her off so she’d leave because danger lurked in the dark spaces of my mind.
I’d forgotten she reacted like a lioness when cornered.
Rookie mistake.
In two steps, Reggie was up against me, in my face.
Protect and dominate. The two different impulses swarmed through me.
I wanted to serve her up on a silver platter and plant my face between her thighs.
Then tuck her against me in my bed, blankets all around, my arms a cradle.
Her eyes hooked mine with nothing but unwavering intensity. “You have driven everyone away, Calder.” Her stance blended her against me, and she had to feel the heat—the need and arousal—she spiked in my body.
“I will not fucking let you go down one more time.” Bleak, no longer dreamy eyes, rose to mine. “I’m not losing you to self-pity or self-loathing or any other kind of hate you keep wrapping around yourself.”
Looked like I’d met my match.
I’d known it all along.
Impossible.
“One man is enough to lose.” Her voice dropped, but her finger pointed at my chest before she spread her fingers over my careening heart. “And you have a choice in the matter.”
At her unerring words, I went stock-still.

RELEASE BOOST - The Unrequited by Saffron A. Kent




Title: The Unrequited
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 13, 2017



Blurb

Layla Robinson is not crazy. She is suffering from unrequited love. But it’s time to move on. No more stalking, no more obsessive calling.

What she needs is a distraction. The blue-eyed guy she keeps seeing around campus could be a great one—only he is the new poetry professor—the married poetry professor.

Thomas Abrams is a stereotypical artist—rude, arrogant, and broody—but his glares and taunts don’t scare Layla. She might be bad at poetry, but she is good at reading between the lines. Beneath his prickly fa├žade, Thomas is lonely, and Layla wants to know why. Obsessively.

Sometimes you do get what you want. Sometimes you end up in the storage room of a bar with your professor and you kiss him. Sometimes he kisses you back like the world is ending and he will never get to kiss you again. He kisses you until you forget the years of unrequited love; you forget all the rules, and you dare to reach for something that is not yours.

NOTE: Please be aware that this book deals with sensitive topics like cheating and death. 18+ Only.

Excerpt

I’m hit by a storm of desire to kiss him better. It’s a tornado, an avalanche in my body, and in one breathless moment, I decide to go for it. It’s okay. I can take the blame for it later.
I break the rules and reach up and kiss him. A feathery peck on his plump lips, it’s a kiss of solidarity, a kiss that intends to tell him I understand—but one isn’t enough. It only manages to ratchet up my lust. So I give him another, this time on the corner of his mouth, and then another one on his jaw.
It’s not enough, these small, barely-there touches. I want more, but I won’t take it. I’ll be good; I’ll only give.
Abruptly, he fists my curls and stops me. I look at him fearfully, ready to apologize—not for the kiss, but for being the kisser. His gaze reflects passion, stark, raving need, and I shiver, despite wearing layers and sweating with his heat.
“Are you trying to kiss me, Layla?” he rasps, flexing his fingers on my makeshift ponytail.
He couldn’t tell? Blush rises to the surface and I know I’m glowing like a neon sign. Swallowing, I nod. “Yes.”
He inches closer to me, still not touching—as impossible as that is—but infinitely closer. “You want to kiss me, Miss Robinson, you do it right.”
Oh God, does he have to call me that? Now, here? My spine arches on its own and my heavy tits graze the contours of his shuddering chest.
“H-How?” I ask innocently, belying the daring action of my body. His stern, professor-y voice is doing things to me, making me wild, uncontrolled.
For a second, he’s silent, just watching. I’m afraid he’ll back out from whatever this is, whatever insanity we’re about to commit—but then I sense the shift in the liquor-laced air as he opens his mouth and growls, “Like this.”

I'm a big believer in love (obviously). I believe in happily ever after, the butterflies and the tingling. But I also believe in edgy, rough and gutsy kind of love. I believe in pushing the boundaries, darker (sometimes morally ambiguous) emotions and imperfections.

The kind of love I write about is flawed just like my characters. And I hope by the end of it, you'll come to root for them just as much as me. Because love, no matter where it comes from, is always pure and beautiful.

Blog Tour SUMMER'S LEASE by Carrie Elks

SBPRBanner-SL-BT

Summer’s Lease by Carrie Elks Release Date: July 13th Genre: New Adult Romance

Summer’s Lease an all-new romance by Carrie Elks is available NOW!

summer's lease full wrap
Meet the Shakespeare family: four sisters, four stories . . . four ways to find true love
Cesca Shakespeare has hit rock bottom. Six years after the play she wrote bombed at the box office, she's unable to hold down a job, keep an apartment, and worst of all her family have no idea how far she's fallen. So when her fairy Godfather offers her the use of his friend's Italian villa for the summer, she grudgingly agrees to try writing a new play. That's before she finds out the house belongs to her arch-nemesis, Sam Carlton.
When Hollywood heart-throb Sam Carlton sees his name splashed across a gossip rag, all he wants to do is hide. That's how he finds himself traveling to Italy, deciding to spend the summer in his family's empty villa on Lake Como. Except when he arrives it isn't as empty as he'd hoped.
Over the course of the hot Italian summer, Cesca and Sam have to come to terms with their pasts. What begins as a tentative friendship quickly grows into an intense attraction - and then a scorching fling. But they can't hide from reality forever . . . as their different worlds collide, Sam and Cesca face a choice: is this just a summer romance, or could their love weather even the coldest winds?
A brand new series from the bestselling author of Fix You and the Love in London series.

Excerpt:

Sam was standing in front of her, holding a glass of water. In his other hand was a packet of Advil. He gave her the glass, then popped out two pills. Cesca was too surprised to do anything other than take them from him, swallowing them one at a time. “Thank you?” It came out as a question. If she’d been feeling more like herself she’d probably interrogate him, or accuse him of trying to poison her. Instead she felt a warmth in her chest, one that seemed to pacify her swirling stomach. “We’ve all been there,” Sam said, taking the empty glass of water from her. “Why don’t you go back to bed? You look like hell.” “Thanks.” Once she was feeling better, she really needed to work on her repartee. “It wasn’t really a compliment.” “I didn’t take it as one. I know I look terrible. I should. It’s my own fault anyway.” Sam wrinkled his nose. “Nah, we can blame the wine.” “Yeah, because it jumped right out of the bottle and into my mouth.” In spite of her headache, she felt the corners of her lips turn up. “That damn Chianti, it’s got a mind of its own. Should be banned, it’s a dangerous substance.” “Shouldn’t you be lording it over me?” she asked. “After all, you don’t like me, and you have every right to tell me off for getting drunk and then being hungover on the job.” “You’re not an equal adversary right now. I’ll wait until you’re feeling better to make you feel bad.” “That’s very gentlemanly of you.” “I aim to please.” He flashed her an unexpected smile. “Now get back to bed, you look awful and you stink.” “I can’t, the cleaners are here. I need to supervise them.” “I’ll do it. Please go back to bed.” She would have narrowed her eyes, but it hurt too much. “Why are you being so kind?” Sam sighed. “Look, I know we got off to the worst start, and I know we’re never going to get along, but the fact of the matter is, for at least the next few weeks we have to find a way to live together. You’re not well, and I’m here with nothing much to do, and it makes sense for me to take over. So please go back to bed and sleep it off.” “I owe you one,” she replied. “If I ever feel better I’ll try and make it up to you.” That made the corner of his lip twitch, but he ignored her offer anyway. “Go on, get off with you. If you’re not up by this evening I’ll come in and check on you. Otherwise, get some sleep, have a shower, and smarten yourself up.” “Yes, sir.” If she had more than a basic control of her muscles she would have curtseyed. Instead she used the small amount of energy she had to climb up the stairs to her bedroom. Maybe when she was feeling better she’d try to work out Sam’s motivations, why he’d been so accommodating to her. For now, though, she’d just be grateful for them, wherever they came from.


Summer's Lease is a great summer read which is how I spent my 
time reading Cesca's story. 
Relaxing in the sun. 
I had a good time in Cesca's company and most definitely also in Sam Carlton's. 
What I really enjoyed about Summer's Lease was the funny and easy bantering between Cesca and Sam. 
Their first meeting in Italy 
after six years was terrific. 
The animosity that continued was equally as funny and when alcohol and flirting entered the equation all bets were off and that's when I really enjoyed myself.

The change that Cesca went through during her time in Italy showed how much she needed to get away and find herself, cause that exactly what she did. 
She acknowledged her own faults and saw Sam with new and different eyes.
Yes, Cesca and Sam had chemistry but I would have loved some more intensity cause at times it felt a little flat. 
I definitely felt like I was in Italy. 
The descriptions were fabulous 
but at times it took away the 
attention from Sam and Cesca.

Overall I enjoyed Summer's Lease. 
It was a sweet, funny and light read. 
Cesca's three sisters Lucy, Juliet and Kitty were introduced and their close friendship and relationship were also a 
highlight of mine. 
Kitty's story is next and I'm interested to found out if she's as lucky as Cesca.
