Once upon a time, I didn’t think I’d ever be normal.

The Truth about Porn Stars Boyfriends by Sunniva Dee


The Truth about Porn Star Boyfriends
Sunniva Dee

Publication date: August 15th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

I guess I just forgot.
To ask him what he did for a living, I mean.
And by the time I did, I was in—balls deep, as he’d call it.
He was the perfect boyfriend.
Attentive, gorgeous, guessing my every wish and fulfilling them.
The sex was earth-shattering.
He even dealt with my crazy mom the way no one else could.
He popped the question, God, such a perfect guy.
There was just one issue:
He f*cked other girls on camera for a living.
How the hell do you deal with that?
EXCERPT:
I slept over at his house. I did. I just couldn’t go home after everything he told me. I didn’t accept the invite to come with him on the boat today though. I didn’t ask him if he was going without me either. If he is, wouldn’t he be inviting some “friends,” some Alicias or Silks? I don’t want to know.
It’s not difficult to get my shifts back at Mintrer’s. With Il Signore’s nonna at the hospital, the family spends as much time at her bedside as they can.
Mom calls.
She sounds okay.
I need to verify in person even though Paul is next door, hopefully keeping her busy with his garden statues and homemade fountains. He likes my quirky mother because he’s quirky himself. That’s my guess anyway. I don’t think I can handle any new rocks hurled at Status Quo at the moment, especially not from Mom.
The boat is ready.
I only returned to my house two hours again, and this is what Ciro texts me? I roll my eyes. Frieda lowers the bagel she held up for me—everything or just sesame seeds?—and says, “That isn’t the porn star, is it?”
“Yeah, it’s Drake Constantine.” I pull out the syllables mocking him even though each sound opens my chest again.
“Well, at least he’s got a nice artist name. He’s no Jake daBoner or Cassius Erectus.”
I snort.
“Drake Constantine boned me in the ass last night,” she quotes as if from Shakespeare. She gazes beyond the bagel she now holds up like a skull.
I chuckle a little bit, and Frieda smiles. Smiles so wide it makes me feel guilty over everything I’ve put her through. I know she suffers with me. She didn’t sleep last night knowing I was with Ciro.

“What’s he saying?”
“He tells me he’s got the boat ready.”
“For that Catalina trip?”
“Mhmm.”
“You’re not doing that too, are you?” She drops the halves of the bagel into the toaster.
“Not the everything,” I say. “Can I have the sesame seed one instead?”
She presses her mouth together in a stern line but listens and fishes the everything one out and drops the sesame bagel in instead. “Happy now?”
“Very.”
“You’re not going, right?”
“No.” I want to slap my heart and my body for agreeing that we should say yes. “I already told you. I’m visiting Mom this morning, and then I’m working. If I get to do some overtime this weekend, I’m happy. I need the money, and I really don’t want to mope around the house.”
I’ll wait for you if you’re asleep.
I said I wasn’t going. Can’t. We
I hit “send” before I can finish the “We’re over, remember?” part. It was easier to yell it to him when I was furious. Today, I don’t know how I feel.
Why can’t you? He doesn’t ask about the We part? He knows.
“He’s so stubborn,” I murmur and type again.
Because, when are you seeing someone else for a f*** fest?
He deserves that I’m being crude. Hell, he’s being crude every hour of every work day.
He takes a moment to reply. Long enough for Frieda to scoot a plate and the tub of cream cheese in front of me. “Stop texting with him. You’re only dragging it out. You know that, right? I thought you’d blocked him.”
“He has a work phone too. On-freaking-call cell. Ha!”



First things first. 
Sunniva Dee never ceases to amaze me. 
I have to be honest and say with this book's title I was curious, a little nervous and yet again I knew Sunniva Dee would give it her magic touch. Her stories are one of kind and so are her characters. My expectations were blown to smithereens cause boy oh boy did I love this story and was wooed properly by Ciro Silveira.

Ciro Silveira is no man with an ordinary job. No, he works in the adult movie industry. He's not a typical porn star, meaning taking advantage of his popularity and his incredible skills in bed to pursue women. Been there done that. No to him it's a job he takes very seriously and tries his best to separate himself from it when the director yells "that's a wrap".
Savannah Nelson is one funny, quirky and wonderful woman who works, takes care of her mother and tries her best to maintain a life where no disturbances are allowed. 
That's until Ciro makes his appearance.

These two were incredible together. 
Ciro wooed Savannah with everything he had and she pushed and fought back with all she had. Their chemistry was delicious and his confidence, determination and patience was definitely a turn on because 
Ciro didn't do it show off. 
No, he wanted to establish a connection with Savannah. Making her feel 
desired and comfortable.
 Getting her to know the real Ciro.
When Ciro's occupation is revealed to Savannah it was handled and depicted with realism. I could easily understand and imagine her feelings and insecurities. 
Ciro just turned up his yummy factor cause he kept pursuing and fighting for Savannah. 
I love a man groveling and damn Ciro delivered. He kept surprising me throughout this entire story. Especially with his outlook on his life, job and his love for Savannah. 
They're both beautifully layered characters with many nuances and they're slowly peeled off as the story evolves. 
The secondary characters are awesome and definitely gave me some laughs. 
The final chapter gave me what
 I wanted and so much more.

I'm head over heels in love with this book. Sunniva Dee definitely put her twist on the story and characters. I love how she chose to portray Ciro. As a working man who's priority is to protect his woman and separate the two - love and work from one another. 
It's not an easy task but Sunniva Dee did an excellent and flawless job. Her execution is perfection and prose intoxicating. 
Bring on the next book!!!

Author Bio:
Between studies, teaching, and advising, Sunniva has spent her entire adult life in a college environment. Most of her novels are new adult romance geared toward smart, passionate readers with a love for eclectic language and engaging their brain as well as their heart while reading.
Born in the Land of the Midnight Sun, the author spent her early twenties making the world her playground. Southern Europe: Spain, Italy, Greece--Argentina: Buenos Aires, in particular. The United States finally kept her interest, and after half a decade in Los Angeles, she now lounges in the beautiful city of Savannah.
Sometimes, Sunniva writes with a paranormal twist (Shattering Halos, Stargazer, and Cat Love). At other times, it's contemporary (Pandora Wild Child, Leon's Way, Adrenaline Crush, Walking Heartbreak, and Dodging Trains, coming in late March 2016).
This author is the happiest when her characters let their emotions run off with them, shaping her stories in ways she never foresaw. She loves bad-boys and good-boys run amok, and like in real life, her goal is to keep the reader on her toes until the end of each story.

Bama Girl Blues Blog Tour


It was supposed to be one night of passion…
Winston “Keys” Cornell is the guitarist for Hot Wired, the hottest band around. With hard work and dedication his band has become a household name. He’s no stranger to a high profile life. Being the heir to a New York fortune meant he was nurtured beneath the scrutiny of the public eye. The paparazzi have been kind, dubbing him the gentleman rocker, a man that plucks the heart strings of women everywhere.
…an agreement between friends, nothing more.
Nessa Hayes is a woman on a mission. She’s outspoken, foul-mouthed, and has her life mapped out. Determined no one will sidetrack her dreams, she’s surprised by her attraction to her childhood friend, Keys. Engaging in an affair with no-strings seemed like a great idea at the time, but falling in love might be the least of her heartache.
But scandals never sleep and…
When their different worlds collide, can they overcome their diversity for a chance at romance? Or will they be broken hearted, left to sing a sad and lonely tune?
…this one might leave Keys singing the Bama Girl Blues!





I have been pining for this story 
for over a year!  
IT certainly did not disappoint! 
Keys and Nessa had a sexy banter 
and feral need for each other 
that ignited when they touched. 
Keys in the guitar player in the Hot Wired Band and while this can be read as a stand-alone, reading the series just gives all the characters so much more depth and sheds light on their interactions with each other. 
Nessa and Keys have known each other 
along time before the fame 
and fortune of the band.  
He never really looked at her as anything but part of his band family.  
She is best friends with Sam 
his band mate's wife's. 
He also doesn't mess with anyone he considers a friend.
Nessa is relentless. 
She knows what she wants and is a sassy southern girl that isn't afraid 
to tell it like it is.
Keys is born of old money and of course a hot guitar player engulfed in another  fortune. He was panty melting and swoon worthy throughout the entire story. 
Despite their upbringings, they have a good time with each other. 
They can be themselves no pretenses. 
They have such a sexy, sassy banter that it makes me smile just thinking about it. 
It was a slippery slope these two were riding,  but ohh Lawd what a ride. 
I felt everything right along with them.  
The flirting, every gaze,  every touch, every OOOOO!!!  
It was beautiful and heartbreaking 
all together.  
I loved the way Miller captured the way the media can infiltrate, influence and destroy all things. Her prose was spot on.  
It was great to see the other characters from the series. 
The supporting characters that form their "family" kept a smile on my face and some truly LOL moments.  
This was a fanfuckingtastic addition to the series and I can't FW to see what cones next!

Excerpt:
Keys could pick his nose and I’d think it’s hot.
What’d that say about Nessa when Keys looked like he was one twitch away from going into a full-blown seizure? At least that’s what his version of dancing resembled. So clearly her nose-picking logic made the most sense.
Nessa tried not to gawk, but good lawd, she couldn’t have turned away from watching a train wreck either. An apt description of Keys’ so-called moves.
Train wreck. Poor guy.
His personality and looks made up for this shortcoming, but still… poor guy.
Fang and Derr made him look worse with their rhythmic steps. Even Fallon was better, and she came across as a little stiff. Jase acted the fool, throwing out seventies style strut, a little Footloose panache, and inserted some crazy foot-moves flair she’d only ever seen performed on reruns of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Needless to say those moves had no business ever being performed in public. His over-the-top dance style not only worked for him, but also was fun and demonstrated his zest for life. Despite Jase’s zaniness he still outshined Keys, which was more of a rocking back and forth on his feet and a little hip thrust that was so stiff she cringed each time he executed it.
“Sad, huh?” Her best friend, Samantha—Sam to her friends—said from beside her where they waited at the bar for the next round of drinks.
Tonight was Fang and Sam’s bachelor/bachelorette party and Fang had rented out the nightclub, Double Shots, where apparently Fang—not Heath—had kissed Sam the first time. Sam swore the two personas of Fang’s personality kissed differently. Personally, Nessa couldn’t care less about the details because the idea of Fang’s kisses resulted in bile churning at the back of her throat. Yuck! But her bestie was the happiest she’d seen her since before her parents’ deaths.
“He’s so hawt and then he does that.” Nessa flicked her fingers in Keys’ direction, while shaking her head in mild disgust.

Blog Tour THE FORBIDDEN by Jodi Ellen Malpas

SBPRBanner-JEM-TF-BT

The Forbidden by Jodi Ellen Malpas Publication Date: August 8th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance

The Forbidden, an all-new story from Jodi Ellen Malpas is available now!!TheForbidden

Annie has never experienced the 'spark' with a guy-that instant chemistry that renders you weak in the knees. That is, until a night out brings her face to face with the dangerously sexy and mysterious Jack. It's not just a spark that ignites between them. It's an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.
Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who's had such a powerful impact on her must be dangerous. She has no idea that he belongs to another. That he's forbidden.

💛 A Note From The Author 💛

“The Forbidden” is exactly that. Not allowed. Prohibited. Banned. At least, that’s what society says. But what about your heart? It took a massive leap of faith for me to put these words on paper. I’ve always said that I write what my heart tells me to write, not what people want me to write. Never has my own motto been so significant in my writing career. I questioned my sense when I came up with the idea of The Forbidden. Then I reminded myself of my motto, of my heart’s desire, and my heart really wanted to tell this story, despite knowing that it might not be what people expect from me. I couldn’t let my fear of the taboo subject matter dictate my writing. So I dove right in—no holding back, no inhibitions, no softly-softly approach. The Forbidden is controversial. I’ve no doubt it’ll cause debate, and I’m cool with that. As a writer, you accept that what you send out into the world is going to be picked apart, sometimes for the good, sometimes for the bad. This story is about the conflict. The feelings. The questions. It’s about the heart ruling the head. I ask you to go into it with an open mind, and please remember that it is a story. One of passion, of love, and of heartache. It’s about falling in love with the wrong person at the wrong time. Because it happens. Every single day. But above all of that, it’s about being true to yourself and your heart. It’s about finding your soulmate and fighting for them. It’s about standing by what you believe in. And we all believe in true love.
