Emma

From the moment I met Grayson Cole, I knew he was someone I wanted to let in my panties and maybe, even in my heart. One night, one sexy-as-sin kiss, and several drinks later, our incredible evening turns into a disaster and I’m apologizing for the vomit spatter on his fancy, black shoes. I never thought I’d see him again after that, no matter how many nights I spent wishing I would. Until a month later, he waltzes into my office as—MY NEW, HOT BOSS. I’m so screwed.

Grayson

She was meant to be a fun f*ck. That’s all I wanted. That’s all I needed. But Emma Williams could never be just that for me. The quirky, brunette vixen challenges me at every opportunity. My desire to have her has me working for her affections, like I’ve never done before. What is this woman doing to me? Not only am I her Boss, but I don’t do feelings. There’s only one way I see this ending. I’m f*cked for sure.

Excerpt

Grayson
             The erotic book in my hand is barely distracting me from the stunning woman lying in my bed. Her dark, wavy hair is cascading over the pillow and the sheet barely covers her. From my chair, I have a perfect view of the curve of her back, narrow waist, and luscious ass. She groans as she moves and my cock hardens from the sound. She’s learned I have certain tastes in the bedroom. I’d never belittle or hurt a woman, but I do like some kink. No doubt she’s a little sore from the vibrator I used. If the sounds of her moans and the two orgasms meant anything, I’d say she liked it very much. My lips curve from the memory of her face when I brought it out and then again when she reached her first climax.

Reaching down, I adjust my semi into a more comfortable position. Little does Emma know how often she gives me a hard on. It’s like I’m a fucking teenager again with an uncontrollable snake in my pants that becomes alert and ready anytime it gets a whiff of her pussy.

What’s even more confusing is what I’m feeling for her. I’ve never been patient with sex. I’ve seduced, got what I wanted, and moved on. It’s been this way for years. No woman has ever mattered enough that I wanted to be patient, careful, and even considerate of her emotions. But Emma’s inside my head, an itch I can’t satisfy until I have her, all of her. With her, I want to take the seduction slowly. I’m enjoying it. She appreciates everything I do, and I find myself upping the ante just to win her affections.

Fear isn’t something a man likes to admit to others, let alone to himself, but I feel it. It’s there. I’m afraid I’ll hurt her. I want her to trust me because if she gives me her trust, I’ll have her. But, then what? She’ll be another conquest and I’ll what, get bored like I always do, lose interest? Or will it be me that burns? If I let her in, I’ll have to change. I’ll have to give her the trust I know she’ll want from me. Am I even capable of giving it, of loving someone?

She stirs in her sleep and I watch her. Emma has no idea she’s the first woman to have stayed the night with me. It’s probably why I’m up at two a.m. reading because I can’t sleep. Not with her lying next to me, smelling like sex and jasmine, and breathing so peacefully it pains me to look at her.

“Grayson,” her voice is a sleepy whisper.

I continue watching her move. The sheet falls from her breasts as she sits up and turns to face me. The question in her eyes kills me. She’s concerned why I’m not in bed with her. Stepping from the bed, she approaches. Her dark, little patch above her pink lips annihilates my remaining control over my cock.

“Can’t sleep?” she asks, her voice so sweet it breaks me.

I extend my arm and she slides onto my lap and lies against my chest, like we’ve been doing this for years. The scent of jasmine fills my nostrils and I lean against her hair, breathing her in. The touch of my hand caressing her back releases a pleasured moan from her lips. Lips that can easily bring me to my knees, if I’m not careful.

“Sorry to wake you. I read when I can’t sleep.”

Laying her head on my shoulder, she looks at my book. “What are you reading?”

Undo This Night.”

“Will you read it to me?”

The corner of my mouth raises. “You want me to read it out loud to you?”

She giggles and the sound widens my smile.

“Yes.”

This is unexpected, but I like it. She continues to surprise me. I can never predict what Emma will do, and it’s something I adore about her. She keeps me on top of my game.

“From the beginning or where I’m at?”

“Where you’re at.”

My attention returns to the book. “I raise Tiffany’s ass in the air and slap it once, twice then spread her cheeks. Reaching for the condom I tossed on the bed, I sheath it over my cock, then rub against her pink, tiny hole. Looking over her shoulder at me tells me she wants me to fuck her hard. It’s been two weeks since I’ve seen her and by the needy look in her eyes, she knows I won’t be gentle.

Emma’s hand reaches into my sweatpants and circles my raging hard on. Each stroke makes it harder to focus on the words.

I slam into her tight pussy and latch onto her hips, using them as leverage to fuck the moans right out of her mouth.”

Emma pushes the book out of her way and straddles me with her knees tucked into the cushion of my chair. Her mouth slams down on mine and I toss the book to who-fucking-cares where. Lifting her from the chair, I wrap her legs around me and pull her ass up against my aching erection and move her over it.

“Grayson, I want you. I want to feel you inside of me.”

“No other men, Emma. If you’re with me, you’re with only me.”

“I don’t want anyone else.”

Laying her on the bed, she watches as I remove my sweatpants. My cock is at attention and her eyes go right to it. She moistens her bottom lip and it jumps at the sight of it. The last time that tongue touched my dick, she stole a chunk of my heart. Wicked little thing she is.

“Let me get a condom.” I move toward the dresser and she extends her legs, trapping me between them.

“Don’t need one. I’m on the pill.”

My chest tightens. Sex without a condom is something I don’t do. Fuck me, she’s got me between a rock and a soft, little pussy I’m dying to feel. I turn to her and crawl above her on the bed. “Just this once. I want to feel you come all over my cock.”

Her gray eyes are locked on mine and her mouth tilts into a lascivious grin. I close the space between us and kiss her. Spreading her legs, my dick slides across her slick pussy. She’s already soaking wet for me. I raise my hips and plunge into her.

Cock-melting heat surrounds me, she’s so tight I barely have to move to get the friction I need. Pushing in further, she lets out a whimper.

“Am I hurting you?”

“No, you feel incredible.”

“Emma, I want to give you slow and sensual, but I don’t think I can. I want to fuck you until you’re calling out my name.”

“Please, fuck me,” she begs.

Her needy plea puts me into action. One hand takes hold of her neck and the other tucks under her leg, raising it as I thrust into her hard. Every time I pull out and slam into her, I feel the blood racing to my groin. The familiar tingle is at my back; she’s spewing cuss words and calling out my name. Another thrust and her orgasm pours over me and it feels perfect.

My jaw clenches and I release into her. It’s a high I’ve never had and the moment it happens, I know I’m ruined. There’s no way I can go back to a condom with her.

Lying on the bed, she’s sprawled out across my body in a deep sleep with her head tucked into my neck. My fingers are combing through her hair and I’m watching the ceiling, replaying different scenarios in my head. Every single one ends with the same fear—one of us getting hurt.

LAUREN'S REVIEW
I just want to warn you this book will make to want to quit your job and find one with a hot boss. Especially if he’s anything like Grayson Cole! 

Hot is definitely an understatement when it comes to him. He’s handsome, sexy, devoting, rich, he’s perfect right? Is anyone perfect though? 

Emma’s heartbroken, she was completely, madly, deeply in love with her boyfriend of 2 years and one day he just ends it! It broke her. A few weeks later her best friend takes her out to get her out of her depressive slump where she quite literally bumps into Grayson, instant chemistry ignites between them and they can’t keep their hands off each other, but fate really is cruel sometimes and they both end up going their separate ways. 

Fast forward one month and Emma has a new boss, that’s right you guessed it! It’s Grayson. With that instant chemistry heating up again can they control themselves and remain professional or will they each give in to their sexual desires? 

I liked how Emma is a strong, career driven woman who is smart as well as beautiful. She is also incredibly funny at times saying lines that you have probably said or thought yourself. Emma also knows how to stand up for herself and doesn’t just get walked over or let a man take control. 
Like i said before from the outside Grayson is the perfect catch but in many ways he’s much more vulnerable than Emma is. With an estranged mother and a heartless father what chance did he really have! 

My hot boss is written from both Emma and Grayson’s point of view. I loved getting into Grayson’s head to read what he is thinking, i really think it gives the story greater depth. 


Although most if this book is predictable, which i don’t actually mind i like knowing what I’m going to get, i really wasn’t expecting the last few chapters to go the way they did. My heart was in my mouth at one point! But leading up to the end, this book is incredibly sexy and will have you devouring it chapter by chapter like an addiction waiting to get your next Grayson fix! And i couldn’t get enough!

RELEASE DAY BLITZ AND REVIEW - SURVIVOR BY HAYLEY OAKES

(¸.•´ (¸.•`Hayley Oakes - Survivor - OUT NOW! .•*´¨) ¸.•*¨)



Synopsis:
I live by one motto - work hard, play harder.

A pro-football player at the top of my game: the Devereux charm, and my skills on and off the field haven't let me down yet.

Whatever I want comes easy to me but when I see the cute, blonde gym instructor with the sensational body, I want her ... but something tells me it's going to take more than my name to score with Perrie Fraser.

Head down, no distractions - it's my new mantra.

As a gym instructor to high-end clientele, all I want is to get through each day without attracting unwanted attention. Even if that attention does come in the form of a drop-dead gorgeous, annoyingly charming pro-football player.

If his ego doesn't send me running, then his playboy image definitely should ... but the more I get to know him, the clearer it becomes that saying no to Thomas Devereux is going to be much harder than I thought.

Sometimes the last thing you think you need becomes the only thing you can trust.

Wow... what a ride this book took me on!

Never in a million years did I think it was going to affect me so much.

Early on I was a bit sceptical if I'm being honest but the rest of the story and the the build up of the characters kind of snuck up on me.

Before I knew I was so engrossed in the story that I took my tablet with me everywhere I went. I just had to keep on reading.

Survivor is a story that is so endearing yet heartbreaking, funny and oh so loveable all at the same time.

Perrie and Thomas, my god, these two together is like oil and water yet so ying and yang. 

Each and every character is so different but somehow fit so well together. Like a synergy effect.

My words might sound randomly thrown together but when you have had the chance to have read the book yourselves you will know why. 

You simply cannot talk plot lines without giving the gist of the story away.

Read it, love it and become just as immersed in it as I did!

One tiny but very meaningful sneak peak:


"...my one, my only, my everything..."

Author Bio


Ruth Cardello hit the NYTs and USA Today for the first time back in 2012. Millions of sales are evidence that her books are akin to potato chips, addictive from the first one. She has created a multi-series billionaire world with a combination of escapism and realism that has gained her a faithful following of readers.

What Kindle Reviewers write about her:

"Wow hot at every page. Heart stoping, fear raging, mind blowing wonderful."

"I'm a true fan of Ms. Cardello. I ran on to her first book a few years back and have been hooked ever since. I could go on and on about the story line of this book, but I'm not. All of her books are total page turners, unique, heart wrenching, and I love them all. There isn't two alike in the bunch and I feel like I know the characters personally. I personally read 97 authors books. And I buy every book they put out. This author is in my top 10. Great job and keep them coming."

"Love this series. Got me to start reading again. I look forward to the next book. Thank you for giving me the love of reading back."

Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family.

When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm or connecting with her readers online.

I almost convinced myself she wasn't real.

That I had made up this beautiful woman to stay sane and give myself a purpose -- finding her.

And when I did, she was everything and nothing like I'd imagined. Beautiful, smart, willful ... and broken.

But it was all a mistake.

I didn't belong. Not in this place and not with her.

I didn't think I could tell her the truth of what brought me here.

Because that truth would bring darkness and disruption to her already troubled life.

And I was right.

The proof is in the blood on her hands.

COVER REVEAL - COMING HOME BY AINE KELLEY




Coming Home
by Aine Kelley
Release Date: August 21st, 2017
Five years spent wishing things were different.
Five years spent trying to forget it ever happened.
Five years spent wondering what coming home would be like.
Five years spent hoping there was still a chance.
For Jenny Foster, coming home was the scariest thing she’d ever faced, but she was tired of being haunted by the one boy – man – she’d ever loved. She was tired of hiding in the shadows of her childhood; it was time to be the woman she ran away to find.
Jack Ryan knew he only had one chance to make things right with Jenny; a chance he didn’t deserve, but he knew he wouldn’t waste it. It had already taken him a lifetime to see what was right in front of him all along, and he’d be damned if he let her slip away again.
Maybe time heals most wounds, but when it comes to wounds of the heart, Jenny knows time only builds walls to protect what’s already broken. Only love can heal a wounded heart, and for Jenny Foster that meant letting in the one person who broke it in the first place – Jack Ryan.

And he was waiting for her; ready for her to come home…to him.

Ben Foster has been dealing with heartache and guilt for the past two years, believing he lost his only chance at love. Pounding guys on the Rugby field and running the family winery get him through the pain. When Sam arrives he slowly lets out the breath he's been holding and the fog lifts. He wonders if she is the one that can help his heart find a new way home.
Letting go of the past and moving forward is not always easy. Their connection is strong, but their pasts keep getting in the way. Will Sam and Ben's journey tear them apart or help them find their way to becoming each other's home?
