Michelle's review

This was a new author for me so went in with an open mind and all I can say is this book blew my mind, right from the off there was action and drama that traps you instantly.

Teller and Ella best friend relationship went to the extremes. They each were in a relationship when a tragic accident puts them right where they wanted to be. They were close to begin with but this took them so much closer the intensity between them was dangerous ! 

Their close and friends worried about them and knew by previous experience that they could cause chaos and hurt to them selves and others around them.  They were a couple who literally couldn't live without each other but were so destructible when together you couldn't see how they were going to make it. 

I was addicted to their story, the love , danger ,lust and intensity between them was enthralling !! The other characters in the book really made it feel like one bog family and I'm hoping they all have their own story to tell.

This is book 1 and I'm so excited for the next book, Mary Elizabeth has set high expectations for the next one but I'm sure I wont be disappointed.

{{RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW}} MR.COCKY by Nana Malone

Mr. Cocky

I’m a cocky bastard.

I admit it. It’s because I’ve got a big d*ck and I know how to use it. And man have I used it. When my life fell apart, I used it even more to forget.

But I don’t do that anymore. Because my life is back on track. I have a plan. And nothing is going to stand in my way of getting what I’ve worked so hard for.  Nothing except for…her.
Nick licked his lips as his gaze flickered over her. “Selena. I don’t know how to do this.”

A smile tugged at her lips. “I’m pretty sure you do. You’ve shown me twice. But it’s okay.  I’ll show you how it all works.”

He grinned but looked like he was still wavering. Then he whispered, “Sod it,” and reached for her.

Selena pulled his head down so his lips grazed hers lightly, and shivers ran down her spine.

He plunged his fingers into the waves of hair. “I fucking miss you,” he whispered as he buried his nose in her neck. Heat flooded her veins. She knew this was a bad idea, but she longed to taste his skin and feel him inside her. She couldn’t fight it.

Tentatively, she tugged at his top and slid her hands up, over tight abs and his toned chest. When he moaned low, she planted light kisses on his pecs. “I miss you,” she whispered.

“You have no fucking idea how much I’ve missed you.” He kissed her again, backing her into the room, toward the couch. Frantically, his fingers fumbled with the zipper on her wool dress, tugging it down, the zic-zic-zic sound filling the silence in the room.

When the fabric dropped to the floor, Nick wasted no time. His hands tracked over her body, like a blind man trying to remember a lover. When he cupped her breasts, Selena arched into the caress. He gently rolled his thumbs over her nipples and her knees gave out as electric currents coursed through her body, making her weak, needy.

He turned her slowly, kissing her neck. She heard the clink of his buckle and then the ruffling of clothes and she knew he’d shed his jeans. Her breath quickened as he reached his hand around her waist, teasing her ribs, before skimming lower to caress her belly. When he kept moving, pausing at the juncture of her thighs, she held her breath.  She knew what he would find.

He’d find her wet, slick, needing him. Gently, he caressed her warm flesh through the silky fabric of her panties. She let out a moan and tipped her head forward, baring the nape of her neck to his lips. Nick made a low approving sound as he slid his fingers inside her silky fabric and searched for the honey. “You’re so Goddamn sexy,” he whispered in her ear as he stroked her, his warm breath tickling her skin.

With a flick of his free hand, he released her bra, letting her breasts spill free. When he clasped a hand over her breast, she grasped it, intertwining their fingers. Together, they teased her erect nipples, sending ripples of lust through her veins. They plucked, pinched, kneaded. All the while, his fingers gently probed her center, making her wetter. Making her want more. So much more.

When he slid another finger inside her, she cried out, her legs going weak again. “I can’t take it anymore,” Selena said, breathless, falling forward on to the couch. “Please, Nick.” She tossed her hair over her shoulder, looking back at him. “I need you.”

Nick cursed under his breath and hung his head. “Fuck. I meant to get more condoms…but then…you and I…we weren’t…”

Selena stared at him. “Oh, God…”

He kneeled beside her. “I’m so sorry. But don't worry. I’ll make you feel good.  You won’t even notice. Just tell me where it hurts and I’ll kiss it all better. I’ll kiss and kiss and kiss until you beg me to stop.”

“Nick I want you to make love to me.”

He looked down at his erection. “Trust me, he’s with you on this one.”

Despite the need spiking her blood she chuckled. “I’m his best mate after all.”

I enjoyed this read, for me it was quick and I read in one sitting. The characters were full on but great to read.

Selena is a successful business woman, when her father left her the business she knew she would have to work hard to prove herself. Her step-brother always seems to be lurking in the background waiting for her to cock up! With her professional life going well her personal life has suffered and its been a long time since she has been under a man.

Nick hasn't had an easy life, with all his family drama he found himself putting his life on hold. Now he is a mature student who's future is starting to look brighter when he is offer an internship at Shades of Grey. 

Just when Nick looks set to be on the rise he is soon bought back down to earth due to another family crisis. With no way of meeting demands he finds himself making deals with the devil but at what cost.

The attraction is there and sparks fly but...

A relationship between the boss and her intern is bound to have issues but are they enough to keep this couple apart?

RELEASE TOUR - WOMANIZER BY KATY EVANS

WOMANIZER RT BANNER .jpgWomanizer by Katy Evans

Release Date: December 5th, 2016 Genre: Contemporary Romance

Womanizer-v2-Ebook (1).jpg

Synopsis:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans comes a brand new contemporary romance. WOMANIZER is a full length standalone, and no other books in the series need to be read.
You've seen the headlines: Womanizing billionaire player! Watch out! Stay away!
We were just two strangers. Facing a forbidden attraction, a chemical connection. Neither of us expected or wanted it to amount to more.
But I had never been drawn to a guy the way I was drawn to this one: my brother's best friend, and CEO of the company where I interned.
Even knowing I should stay away, I proved to be too human, after all.
The chemistry was amazing.
The laughs were incredible.
I opened up to him in more ways than I'd opened up to anyone before.
But sex was as far as I'd go.
Just sex because he was too irresistible.
Just sex because I wouldn't be falling for him.
Just sex because I'd leave in three months, and I'd like for my brother not to kill me, and for nobody to find out he was my wicked little secret.
He wasn't the One.
He was just a womanizer.
But for a time, he would be mine.

COVER REVEAL - PICK BY K.E. OSBORN


Title: Pick (The Recoil Rock Series #1)
Author:  KE Osborn
Genre: Rocker Romance
Release Date: January 11, 2017
Danger—it's a word that strikes fear into most people. But for me it's not just a word, it's a legacy, a lifeline, my name. My life has been crazy—ups a downs like the highest rollercoaster you've ridden. On tour with the world’s biggest rock stars and on my way to being one myself. Then I met her. The woman who ruined me completely. Fast forward through the shit storm that was my life—I lost the girl, I lost my band. Hell, I lost it all. My only choice was to run. And running was the best thing for me. Because I ran into a pink haired beauty and everything started falling into place. My band reformed and we’re pushing to be right up there with the best of the best. But when you’re fighting to get to the top, is the pressure too much to keep your band, and the girl? In the end, if your heart’s in danger, can love truly be enough?

Danger steps up to the mic and clears his throat. Everyone looks up to the stage, and he smiles a knicker-dropping smile out to the patrons. I draw my bottom lip in with my teeth as even I squirm on my seat at that smile.

“Hey Adelaide, we’re Recoil, and we’re gonna blow your fucking minds!” he calls out and the crowd laughs, even some people cheer. Danger furrows his brows like he was expecting everyone to erupt into a frenzy of elation or something. He nods back to the drummer, and he kicks in the beat and then the music begins. As it filters off through the bar, the sound is amazing, euphoric even. It flows through me making the hairs on my arm stand to attention. Their sound is electrifying, and I love it.

Danger steps up to the mic and what happens next sets my soul on fire. His voice echoes through the mic and sweeps into my pores, flooding my veins, filling me up with warmth, like smooth honey being dripped all over me and then he’s licking it off so sexually it’s driving me crazy. I can’t even imagine how someone’s voice can sound so erotic, and so haunting, and so goddamned perfect at the same time. He’s mesmerizing, and as I stare at him moving around the stage and commanding that everyone pay attention, the entire room shifts and watches.
All eyes are on the band as the area fills with an electrical charge that flows through the air, flicking from one person to the next, connecting us all with the way he sings the lyrics and the energy he performs with. This guy’s a magician, and he has us all under his spell.

Australian author K E Osborn was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. With a background in graphic design and a flair for all things creative, she felt compelled to write the story brewing in her mind.
Writing gives her life purpose. It makes her feel, laugh, cry and get completely enveloped in the characters and their story lines. She feels completely at home when writing and wouldn’t consider doing anything else.
