Crossover_Lexi Blake_300dpi_newCLOSE COVER by Lexi Blake

Remy Guidry doesn’t do relationships. He tried the marriage thing once, back in Louisiana, and learned the hard way that all he really needs in life is a cold beer, some good friends, and the occasional hookup. His job as a bodyguard with McKay-Taggart gives him purpose and lovely perks, like access to Sanctum. The last thing he needs in his life is a woman with stars in her eyes and babies in her future.

Lisa Daley’s life is finally going in the right direction. She has finally graduated from college after years of putting herself through school. She’s got a new job at an accounting firm and she’s finished her Sanctum training. Finally on her own and having fun, her life seems pretty perfect. Except she’s lonely and the one man she wants won’t give her a second look.

There is one other little glitch. Apparently, her new firm is really a front for the mob and now they want her dead. Assassins can really ruin a fun girls’ night out. Suddenly strapped to the very same six-foot-five-inch hunk of a bodyguard who makes her heart pound, Lisa can’t decide if this situation is a blessing or a curse.

As the mob closes in, Remy takes his tempting new charge back to the safest place he knows—his home in the bayou. Surrounded by his past, he can’t help wondering if Lisa is his future. To answer that question, he just has to keep her alive.

Review by Paula:

Remy has his walls up full time. Remy doesn’t do relationships at all and definitely won’t fall for the innocent Lisa he’s protecting. Lisa might want a family but she definitely loves the feistiness of Remy and is slowly tearing down his walls. Very angst romance that has you hating Remy at one point but then you understand why he is the way he is. Very light bdsm scenes it’s mostly just really dirty talk which is totally hot! In the end you fall head over heels for Remy and want more. 4 stars

 

Crossover_Larissa_300dpi_newHER GUARDIAN ANGEL by Larissa Ione

After a difficult childhood and a turbulent stint in the military, Declan Burke finally got his act together. Now he’s a battle-hardened professional bodyguard who takes his job at McKay-Taggart seriously and his playtime – and his playmates – just as seriously. One thing he never does, however, is mix business with pleasure. But when the mysterious, gorgeous Suzanne D’Angelo needs his protection from a stalker, his desire for her burns out of control, tempting him to break all the rules…even as he’s drawn into a dark, dangerous world he didn’t know existed.

Suzanne is an earthbound angel on her critical first mission: protecting Declan from an emerging supernatural threat at all costs. To keep him close, she hires him as her bodyguard. It doesn’t take long for her to realize that she’s in over her head, defenseless against this devastatingly sexy human who makes her crave his forbidden touch.

Together they’ll have to draw on every ounce of their collective training to resist each other as the enemy closes in, but soon it becomes apparent that nothing could have prepared them for the menace to their lives…or their hearts.

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Google Play

Review by Paula:

Usually paranormal isn’t my thing but I actually really enjoyed this book from the first page to the end. Suzanne is a earth angel and goal is to protect Declan a human but Declan thinks he has to protect Suzanne a woman that is getting under his skin. When both worlds collide it’s amazing, tense and nail biting to wonder what’s gonna happen next. Amazing romance with extra kick to make it even more interesting. 4 stars

 

Crossover_J Kenner_300dpiJUSTIFY ME by J. Kenner

McKay-Taggart operative Riley Blade has no intention of returning to Los Angeles after his brief stint as a consultant on mega-star Lyle Tarpin’s latest action flick. Not even for Natasha Black, Tarpin’s sexy personal assistant who’d gotten under his skin. Why would he, when Tasha made it absolutely clear that—attraction or not—she wasn’t interested in a fling, much less a relationship.

But when Riley learns that someone is stalking her, he races to her side. Determined to not only protect her, but to convince her that—no matter what has hurt her in the past—he’s not only going to fight for her, he’s going to win her heart. Forever.

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Google Play

Review by Paula:

Riley hates LA and all the drama from it. Riley finds out though the one woman he’s had a crush on for years needs a security guard because of a stalker and of course he will help her. Natasha won’t give Riley the time of day she has her walls up and dealing with a stalker and now Riley being her security guard she just might let her walls down. This book is HOT and intense at moments but the chemistry between Riley and Natasha is melting! Definitely gotta read this book! 4 stars

 

Crossover_Corinne_300dpiSAY YOU WON’T LET GO by Corinne Michaels

I’ve had two goals my entire life:
1. Make it big in country music.
2. Get the hell out of Bell Buckle.

I was doing it. I was on my way, until Cooper Townsend landed backstage at my show in Dallas.

This gorgeous, rugged, man of few words was one cowboy I couldn’t afford to let distract me. But with his slow smile and rough hands, I just couldn’t keep away.

Now, there are outside forces conspiring against us. Maybe we should’ve known better? Maybe not. Even with the protection from Wade Rycroft, bodyguard for McKay-Taggart, I still don’t feel safe. I won’t let him get hurt because of me. All I know is that I want to hold on, but know the right thing to do is to let go…

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Google Play

 

Review by Paula:

Another book of the cross over but totally different in a way. Emily’s life is about being a country music star but running into Copper was not in the plans either is a stalker. Copper is a straight up country boy and seeing Emily again has opened his eyes and he wants her now. Intense, hot, sexy story with some twists. Great book to add to the series but very different from the rest. 4 stars

 

Crossover_Carly_300dpiHIS TO PROTECT by Carly Phillips

Talia Shaw has spent her adult life working as a scientist for a big pharmaceutical company. She’s focused on saving lives, not living life. When her lab is broken into and it’s clear someone is after the top secret formula she’s working on, she turns to the one man she can trust. The same irresistible man she turned away years earlier because she was too young and naive to believe a sexy guy like Shane Landon could want her.

Shane Landon’s bodyguard work for McKay-Taggart is the one thing that brings him satisfaction in his life. Relationships come in second to the job. Always. Then little brainiac Talia Shaw shows up in his backyard, frightened and on the run, and his world is turned upside down. And not just because she’s found him naked in his outdoor shower, either.

With Talia’s life in danger, Shane has to get her out of town and to her eccentric, hermit mentor who has the final piece of the formula she’s been working on, while keeping her safe from the men who are after her. Guarding Talia’s body certainly isn’t any hardship, but he never expects to fall hard and fast for his best friend’s little sister and the only woman who’s ever really gotten under his skin.

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Google Play

Review by Paula:

Talia is a scientist and someone is after her and she needs protection. Talia ends up calling her brother for help but didn’t realize the man who ends up helping her is Shane the sexy jock she tutored. Shane is shocked seeing Talia again and realizing she’s not the shy innocent girl he thought she was. I loved this book kinda like a second chance romance in a way but so hot and sexy. Chemistry between them is electric. Talia I loved her character how strong she was even with her walls up. Shane I loved his soft side but his protective side makes ya swoon. Amazing romance story! 4 Stars

 

Crossover_Susan_300dpiRESCUING SADIE: A Delta Force Heroes/Masters and Mercenaries Novella by Susan Stoker

Sadie Jennings was used to being protected. As the niece of Sean Taggart, and the receptionist at McKay-Taggart Group, she was constantly surrounded by Alpha men more than capable, and willing, to lay down their life for her. But when she visits her friend in San Antonio, and acts on suspicious activity at Milena’s workplace, Sadie puts both of them in the crosshairs of a madman. After several harrowing weeks, her friend is now safe, but for Sadie, the repercussions of her rash act linger on.

Chase Jackson, no stranger to dangerous situations as a captain in the US Army, has volunteered himself as Sadie’s bodyguard. He fell head over heels for the beautiful woman the first time he laid eyes on her. With a Delta Force team at his back, he reassures the Taggart’s that Sadie will be safe. But when the situation in San Antonio catches up with her, Chase has to use everything he’s learned over his career to keep his promise…and to keep Sadie alive long enough to officially make her his.

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Google Play

Review by Paula:

If you love instant love and short stories with a little drama you will love this book. Sadie needs protection. Sadie’s  past is coming full forward and Chase is there to help the feisty strong red head. A quick read that ends with some scorching hotness! I liked this book but I felt it was too rushed and wish I knew more about Sadie. Plus I’d like more of Chase that’s for sure. 4 stars

EXCERPT

Say You Won’t Let Go by Corinne Michaels

“Good morning,” Cooper’s deep voice grumbles against my neck.

“Hi there, cowboy,” I reply, nestling into his body a little deeper. “Sleep good?”

I did. We passed out at some point during the night—fully dressed. I’ve never had so much fun doing nothing before. All we did was talk about everything and anything, and of course, I kissed him—a lot. How could I not? Kissing Cooper feels like coming home. It was full of anticipation, joy, and a feeling of safety that I could just fall if I had to. Cooper was there to catch me all night.

His nose rubs up and down the back of my neck. “I did,” he replies.

His arm snakes around me, tightening and holding me secure. I try to remember that I need to keep myself in check. Yes, this is Cooper Townsend, but at the same time, we live worlds apart. It isn’t smart to get caught up in something that won’t ever be anything more than just this.

Feelings lead to heartbreak. Heartbreak isn’t something I can afford right now.

“What time does the bus leave?”

I flip over to my other side so I can look at him. “Not until tonight. Luke likes to travel at night and see the city we’re in during the day. So, I have all day. Why?”

He smiles while resting his hand on my hip. “Spend the day with me.”

“Coop.” I sigh. We had talked about this last night. That we’d say goodbye in the morning and keep things light. No complications. No promises. Not until the tour was over and I was back in Tennessee. Then, who knows, but I’m all too aware of how easy it would be for me.

“It’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Just a day of us hanging out,” he presses.

My eyes narrow slightly, and I pull my lips to the side. “I don’t know. We agreed…”

“Emmy, we have a very looming expiration date. I’m just askin’ my friend to hang out. Besides, what other options do you have?”

Review by Susan:

I really love this series so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book, it doesn’t disappoint. I read it in one sitting, once I started I couldn’t put it down! The story follows Voodoo and Presley, I really didn’t know what to expect from them and their story but what we got blew all the other books and couples out the water! I flipping loved Voodoo, he was so swoon worthy and all hot alpha male. Presley was a surprise too, when we first meet her she’s a bit aloof and even though she’s the MC princess she hates the club, but once we learn about her past and she spends more time with Voodoo she grew on me.

The story is full of everything you expect from a MC story, lies, suspense and twists and turns that keep you turning the pages. This really was a wonderful read, I wish I could give more than 5 stars

Shake by Addison Jane

Title: Shake
Series: The Club Girl Diaries #8
Author: Addison Jane
Genre: MC/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 26, 2018

 


 

Ham lost his family in one swoop of the devil’s hand.
His parents were killed, and his brother and sister were torn away from him by a broken system. As the eldest sibling, he was meant to protect them and keep what was left of their family together.
But he failed.
When he found the Brothers by Blood MC, he was given a second chance at a family. He was given time to redeem himself and be the brother he couldn’t be before.
It was there he found Meyah—everything he wanted but didn’t deserve.
Meyah was off limits, but the fire between them only grew more intense as he watched her grow and fight to find her voice. She wasn’t the young and innocent girl he’d felt he had to protect, she was stronger than ever.
Tired of denying the pull between them, he was determined to fix the mistakes he’d made in the past so he could finally feel like a man worthy of someone so damn beautiful, smart and real.
First, he had to go back to where it all began.
And what he finds there may not give him peace.
Instead, it’s about to create a whole new storm.

Review by Susan:
This is the first part of Ham and Meyah’s story and I have to say It was well worth the wait, there story is everything I imagined and more! Over the previous books Addison Jane has been teasing us with the chemistry between them and a will they won’t they end up together. We get to know more about Ham and his history, he doesn’t feel he’s good enough for Meyah till he can sort his past out, once that starts to come together he finally takes what he wants and starts a relationship with Meyah. The course of true love never runs smooth and that’s the case for this pair, there’s twists and turns that keeps you turning the pages and an ending that has you screaming Noooo at your kindle and frantically checking for more pages! Addison Jane has knocked it out the park with this book, I hope she doesn’t make us wait too long for the next part. 5 Stars!

 


 

Addison Jane is a born and bred kiwi girl with a passion for romance and writing.
When she gets the chance she enjoys the little things in life such as reading, dancing, music, and Facebook, but her world really revolves around the little girl who calls her Mum. It’s an awkward balance between alpha males and Disney princesses but it works.
Growing up on a small farm next to the beach will always make her a country girl at heart. But since moving away to a small town close to the city she’s discovered a dangerous love for shopping.
Writing stories has been something that’s come naturally since she was young, and with the massive support of her friends and family, she finally decided to step out of her comfort zone and share them with the world.
She enjoys bringing her books to life with strong female leads, sexy passionate men and a rollercoaster of twists and turns that lead to the happily ever after that her readers desire.

You don’t.

A happily never after.

I was a fool, and his love – fool’s gold.

AN USE THIS ONE

Amazon Universal: http://mybook.to/LongShotKR

Excerpt:

“Iris?” August’s frown, the concern on his face, in his voice, remind me where I am. “Baby, you okay?”

I blink down at him dumbly, swallowing my tears, eating my memories whole and digesting a nightmare from long ago. I nod, my lips a cold, wobbly curve.

“Kiss me,” he whispers, his eyes so tender, so intent.

I remember a magical night under the stars, under a streetlight on the eve of greatness. A night filled with laughter and confidences, pregnant with promise. And I see him so clearly, my prince, asking for a kiss.

And I do.

I kiss him like the world might end tonight because I’ll never take this for granted. Not his kindness, when I’ve known cruelty all too well. Not his tenderness, when I’ve been handled roughly in the past. Not his love, when I’ve been possessed and owned and mistreated.

He thaws me with his kiss, my prince, and I melt into him. We’re chest to chest, with August’s number crushed between us. I take his cock in my hand, aligning our bodies, and two become one in a carnal slide of flesh. I anchor myself by my elbows hooked around his neck, and we kiss until I’m dizzy and our breaths tangle in a cloud of bliss. Under the jersey, his palm spans my back, digging into the naked flesh as our hips lock and roll and grind. My body clenches around him, and we pray, we curse, we moan, we mate like our bodies were made for this moment.

Ours is a love that reimagines—that peels back the sky at high noon searching for the stars, collecting them like shells in a bucket. We bathe in stardust, drink from the Milky Way, and dance on the moon. We pierce the firmament, peer into infinity, and tread on time and space. There is no before. There is no after. Now gives birth to forever. This moment may die, but this love never will. Time is not a line. It’s a circle, and we, August and Iris, we stand at the center.

“A STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND READ THIS NOW kind of book. Don’t hold your breath, this story will steal it from you.”

J. Sterling, New York Times Bestselling Author

Review by Paula:

Ever read a book that you hope changes someone’s life? This is that book. I am Iris I felt her pain, her soul her heart beating while reading this book. I laughed I cried and even smiled and felt myself get even stronger knowing that I am a strong woman like Iris and nothing will change that. Yes this book has many talks about basketball and careers but it’s so much more. August is the sexy man on the cover with his good looks he’s more than that he’s a woman’s dream come true. Once you read the book I hope it changes your thoughts or truly makes you think about people around you daily. Long Shot is truly one book I’ll never forget. 5 stars definitely a 10 Star read and my top book of 2018

Fighting Weight by Gillian Jones


Presents
 
Release Blitz: Fighting Weight
by Gillian Jones
 
AMAZON
Available with Kindle Unlimited
 
Genre:Inspirational Contemporary Romance
 
 
 
We all have that voice inside our heads.
 
The one that speaks to us incessantly. That voice we trust to make the right decisions, to keep us on a positive path, even when others try to bring us down.
 
But what happens when that voice changes? 
When it’s no longer a voice of reason, a voice of comfort giving us a pep talk when we need one?
 
What happens when that inner voice turns into a bully?
 
You’re fat.
Don’t you dare eat that. 
You’ll never be as pretty as her
You’ll never be as good as them.
You’re lazy. You’re stupid.
You are disgusting.
You. Are. Nothing.
What happens when that inner voice makes your body takes its side?
Binge.
Purge.
Binge.
Purge.
And what happens when the bully starts to win?
If your name is Alina Cassidy, then you fight like hell.
Warning: Deals with subject matter some readers might find sensitive. But I promise an HEA.
Review by Paula:
What a emotional deep book that truly pulls at your heart. This book is truly one I’ll never forget. The author brings you fully into a world that deals with bulimia and abuse and makes you feel the characters into your bones. I cried and yelled and even had to calm myself while reading this book because it truly makes you feel hopeless at times so much you wanna reach into the book and help. Everyone has a past and demons but we all need to realize we’re strong and we can fight and not give up and finally be loved. 5 you are enough stars!
Review by Victoria:

5 stars does not even begin to give this book justice!

Alina, an amazing musician, spends most days fighting demons most wouldn’t even know about. When the bully is in your own mind, it’s hard to win the daily struggle against your own body. That is until her band gets the shot of a life time to tour with a major band and label!
That’s where Slater, lead singer and hot man extraordinaire, comes in. Having always been a play boy and never looking to settle down, Alina knocks Slater on his behind the first time he sees her. But will magnetic attraction be enough to over come the demons Alina has battled for years?
Gillian has written this story so flawlessly and honestly. Alina is every one of us when someone makes a passing comment about weight or eating habits. Everyone has had moments they’ve hated looking in the mirror, or hated the way clothes fit. Her bully is the same bully we’ve all dealt with. I cried, i laughed and I loved this novel. Alina’s strength and spirit are amazing in this book. Slater is the man dreams are made of, so loving and patient. But the real beauty is Alina’s triumph on her own. This is a story of a woman finding her own path to recovery and happiness that just seems to include a hotter than sin rockstar. This story will knock you down in emotions but I promise, by the end, your heart will be so full of joy and love. You cannot miss this read!
Review by Christine:

Fighting Weight by Gillian Jones is a deeply emotional encompassing a truly difficult subject ~ bulimia and fighting an eating disorder. Alina Cassidy and her brother Lucky only have each other, both fighting addictions and battling their demons. No one would wish their childhood on their worst enemy. Alina is trying to follow her dreams but “she” keeps holding her back and trying to trip her up. Reading and following her journey was heartbreaking, eye opening and hopeful all at the same time.

The author gives her all in each and every book she writes. I doubt there is a topic she’ll shy away from. I was excited to dive into another one of Gillian’s books and again I wasn’t disappointed. At times I found Fighting Weight hard to read because it felt so real but that is only a testament to the authors ability to suck us into her story. 5 “Tree House” stars for Fighting Weight by Gillian Jones
