DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER. 
You’ll tell me you don’t… but you already think you know what my story’s about.

You have no idea. 
Just like the people sitting in this courtroom. 
She asked for it.  That’s what they keep saying.

And no, it’s not because my skirt was too short or I was drunk at a party. 
It’s nothing like that.  It’s because of what I like and how I like it. 

They’re judging me as I sit in the front row, my eyes drawn to the man on trial. 
If I’d known it was going to end like this, I never would have gone home with him. 
But he’s the type of man I just can’t say no to. 

I wanted to feel his lips kiss down my neck. 
I dreamed of running my fingers along the rough stubble on his jaw.
I craved his hands on me, pinning me down.
I needed to whisper his name in the dark, late at night. 

You still think you know what happened? You don’t. 
He’s innocent and I enjoyed every second I was with him.

Let me tell you my story … all about how I asked for it.

I discovered Willow Winters last year and I have not looked back. Her way of writing brings something new to the table each time and She Asked For It was no different. I found myself glued to my ereader as I devoured this book. There were a lot of little twists in this book and if you haven’t snag the prequel. You will be thankful you read that! 
One thing I really enjoyed out of this book was the character build. Watching Allison and Dean navigate through it all was amazingly written. I loved the intensity and the passion in this book as well! Winters touches on a tough subject and does so with grace. This story is very much about two broken souls who find each other. If you are fan of Winters, you will love this book. I think it is my fave to date by her!

A powerful contemporary romance set in the fast-moving world of international rugby.

Feeling abandoned and betrayed by those closest to him, he fights to restart his life. Maybe there’s someone out there who can help him. Maybe he can find his way back toward the light. Maybe … not.
Dr. Anna Scott might be the one person who can help Nick, but she has her own secrets. And when Nick’s past comes back to haunt them both, the enigmatic doctor is more vulnerable than she seems.
Broken and betrayed, the struggle to survive seems intolerable. Who will give in, and who will rise, undefeated?

Bad For You by J. Daniels

 

     "If you're a fan of Kristen Ashley, then you will love this book." -Aestas Book Blog on Four Letter Word  


 


He didn't want to be bad. He just didn't have a choice... Shayla Perkins isn't the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean "Stitch" Molina. So when he gives her the world's biggest rejection, that's it--she's done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn't mean he's interested in her. Or does it? Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he's paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected--especially from a man like Sean. He's tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.   Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give each other what they want most...is to let each other go?   "The perfect mix of funny, hot and heartwarming. I enjoyed it immensely!" --Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author, on Four Letter Word

I have been a huge fan of Daniels since I fell in love with her Alabama Summer Series and those sexy Bama Boys! I have since devoured everything J. Daniels. With Bad For You Daniels has proved once again why she is an automatic one-click author for me. 
Y'all Stitch is everything! I fell completely, head over heels in love. He is sweet, kind, and sexy with a vulnerable side. You can't help but feel protective of him. 
Shayla is sweet, caring, hardworking, and willing to do whatever is needed to take care of those she loves. 
5 stars is not enough for this amazing story. Bad For You is equally heartbreaking and heartwarming. I couldn't put it down and was left with a book hangover for days. This is my new favorite in this series. However, while it can be read as a standalone, you won't want to miss out on the others in this series.

Title: Smooth

Author: Tracy Ewens

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Smooth:

If only life came with a guarantee.   Patrick McNaughton wants more. More people drinking Foghorn’s beer, more money to push their brewery past the competition, and more cooperation from his brothers, who have no sense of urgency. He’s all about conquering one challenge on his way to the next, so long as there’s a remote chance of winning. That’s why Aspen Pane sits in the office down the hall, oblivious to his attraction. Patrick has always wanted more with her, but he never was one to risk it all.   Aspen Pane has more than enough. As business manager for Foghorn, she keeps the brewery in the black and lives up to the nickname the McNaughton brothers gave her—Wonder Woman. She’s worked hard her whole life for the money she now has in the bank, the small house she calls home, and time with her friends. So, even though it seems everyone close to her, including her brother, is inconveniently falling in love, Aspen sticks with her to-do list. Because love risks everything and she doesn’t do that for anyone.   After an unexpected flight and an eccentric venture capitalist thrust them into a battle of wits and lies even they’re not sure they can win, Patrick and Aspen must learn the difference between making a connection and making money. They may need to face their fears and risk it all in the name of finding a new work-love balance.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Aspen, Patrick is a lucky guy. See that he puts a ring on it and soon.” Joel kissed her hand, and she couldn’t decide what was more off-putting: that he managed a wet hand kiss or that he still believed that BeyoncĂ© reference was funny. Despite both, she managed a smile and a thank-you for what had truthfully turned into an entertaining evening. Patrick shook hands one last time and didn’t push for anything further. He was subtle that way. He knew when to push, which made one more thing Aspen appreciated.   Once they’d checked into their hotel, they both walked out onto the adjoining balconies of their adjoining suites—Patrick sat in the cushioned chair in his suit minus the jacket and tie and Aspen in her dress, slippers, and one of the gorgeous robes hanging in her bathroom, took a seat on her patio.   “Not bad for a fake date, am I right?” She led with sarcasm because he was quiet. The energy between them was difficult to navigate outside of work, out from behind their laptops. Now that the evening was quiet, it felt like things could be shared, but it was safer to stick with their familiar back and forth.   “Do you date, Aspen? You know, other than guys you’re not attracted to anymore or fake dates?” Patrick obviously didn’t get the memo that they were sticking with sarcasm and small talk. His face was serious, but he was looking up at the night sky.   She tightened her fluffy robe. “Lucas is the guy I’m not attracted to?”   He nodded and then glanced at her, still no sarcasm.   “I… date. Rarely. I’m not looking for men I find attractive.”   “Why?”   She pulled her legs onto the seat and tucked them under her robe, as if she could hermit crab her way out of her feelings. “I don’t know. I like having the upper hand.”

Release Blitz: xo, Zach by Kendall Ryan

  The first time we met was at a party.

Your ex arrived to show off the person he'd left you for last month, and you asked me to pretend to be your date.

I was more than happy to help. You were attractive, smart and witty--and that kiss we shared? It left me wanting you for days.

The second time we met was in my office on campus where we were both surprised to discover you were the new master’s degree student in poetry that I would be working with. You promised to be professional. I did no such thing.

The late nights and intense study sessions spent alongside you majorly throw me off my game. I want you, and I fight with myself daily over this fact.

I know I'm crass, that my sexual innuendos and dirty mouth annoy you, but I live for those two bright spots of color in your cheeks. If that's the only reaction I can get out of you, I'll gladly take it.

You hate Mondays so every Monday I slip an anonymous poem into your bag and your smile gets me through the week.

I think I'm falling for you, and I know it's wrong. I know that I'm only supposed to be your adviser and nothing more, but here's the thing. I think you're falling for me too.

xo, Zach

        "This is serious, Poppy. Will you promise?" "What am I promising?" This man had a way of getting me to say things, to feel things, to admit things that I might not have otherwise. I wasn't sure if it was because he was older and wiser and that much more cunning at these types of discussions, or if it was just because being near him seemed to physically lower my inhibitions. He was like a walking shot of tequila. "I need you to promise me that if anything physical happens between us—that it will be very consensual, and very sex-positive. I need you to understand that I will worship you and make you come So. Many. Fucking Times." He annunciated those words so clearly and slowly, I felt them with every beat of my heart, every pulse of heat between my legs. Oblivious to my hammering heart, Zach continued. "But I also need you to know that if I do or say anything you don't like, all you have to do is say so and everything will stop. Just the word no, Poppy. Use it and I promise to leave you alone." "Leave me alone as in stop mentoring me, stop helping me in the program?" His face was serious and he shook his head without even considering it. "I will never stop mentoring you, as long as you want it. Giving in to our attraction—or not—will never be a condition for my help. I want you to succeed, and it has nothing to do with how much I want you in my bed. Do you understand that?" I felt myself nodding my head. I knew what he was saying. Despite how aggressively Zach put his feelings on the subject of us out there—I knew he'd never betray my wishes. "Okay," I murmured. He considered me for a long moment, neither of us blinking. "Why did you approach me that night at the party, Poppy. Did you find me attractive?" Was he fucking serious? Of course I find him attractive. Actually, attractive was too weak a word. I found him mesmerizing. Addictive. Enchanting. Impossible. "I'm not saying I do, but if I wanted something to happen ..." I swallowed a wave of nerves and took a shallow breath as Zach's mouth curved into a grin. "Something as in finding out how many times in a row I can make you come using my mouth, my hands, and my ..." I held up one hand. "Yes. That. How would it work, isn't it, like, forbidden?" God, why did the word forbidden make me feel even hotter?             A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of more than two dozen titles, Kendall Ryan has sold over 1.5 million books and her books have been translated into several languages in countries around the world.

        “I think we should establish some ground rules,” I announce, as we drive along the curving ocean road. Palm trees are swaying, the ocean is glittering aquamarine blue, and it’s all so gorgeous and romantic, I need to cling to some semblance of professionalism. Max groans. “Do we have to?” “Yes,” I say firmly. “We’re pretending to be in a relationship, so things could get . . .” Hot . . . Tempting . . . “Complicated,” I finally decide. “OK.” Max sounds amused. “What did you have in mind?” “No touching below the waist,” I say. “No PDA except holding hands and quick kisses. No tongue. And no talking about our imaginary sex life.” I’m a little too hot and bothered just imagining we have an imaginary sex life. “Fine.” Max grins. “I promise not to ravish you in front of my entire family.”
