Today is the release day blitz for The Truth About Lennon by K.L. Grayson! We have a fantastic celebration for you, so check it out and grab your copy today!!


About THE TRUTH ABOUT LENNON: 
Lennon Barrick-St. James is making headlines as New York City's hottest new socialite. Only she isn't new at all. One well-intentioned night gone wrong has landed the daughter of the vice presidential candidate Christopher St. James on the front pages of every newspaper and magazine in the country. 

 Forced by her father to stay out of the limelight, Lennon flees to the quiet town of Haven, Texas, where she vows to lie low and avoid men. Well, except for the sexy biker she just ran off the road--she definitely won't be avoiding him.   

 Noah Cunningham 

 Already has a girl in his life, and he sure as hell doesn't need another. Especially the beautiful and sinfully sweet angel that just descended upon the quiet little town he calls home. 

 The only problem is that the more time he spends with Lennon, the more he wants to be with her. And that's just not going to work for Noah. He's already been burned once and he's not so sure he's ready to go down that road again.   

 Noah has spent the last five years putting his life back together after secrets and lies ripped it apart. So what will happen when he learns the Truth about Lennon.

Exclusive Excerpt:

Later that night, I’m crawling into bed, my sketch pad in hand, when my phone rings. Brenna’s name flashes across the screen.
Shit.
I don’t want to answer, because I already know we’ll end up in another fight. And I’m sick of fighting. I push the button to ignore the call.
                I’ve enjoyed my short time here in Heaven, and it isn’t necessarily because of Nova and Noah—although they play a big part. But I’ve enjoyed the quieter life. I’ve enjoyed exploring the little shops in town, getting to know the friendly locals, and seeing the potential all around me. I’m doing what I want when I want without having to answer to anyone. No publicist watching my every move, and no looking over my shoulder everywhere I go, wondering if the paparazzi are hiding around the corner, just waiting for me to screw something up. And I haven’t screwed anything up. I’ve made some mighty fine decisions—both business and personal—since I’ve been here, if I do say so myself.
                My phone vibrates again, but this time when I look down, I smile.
                Noah: How is your night going?
            Me: Better now that I’m talking to you.
                I snuggle into my covers, waiting for him to respond.
                Noah: I was going to call, but I didn’t want to wake you up.
            Me: I’m in bed, but you didn’t wake me up.
            Noah: Now we’re getting somewhere. Bed, huh? What are you wearing?
                I can’t help it, I grin.
                Me: Am I supposed to be wearing something?
            Noah: Fuuuuuuck
            Me: I can think of a few ways for you to come warm me up ; )
                A few seconds later, my phone rings, and I pull it to my ear. “Hello?”
                Noah growls. “You’re killing me.”
                The sound of his voice is enough to send my body into overdrive. “In the best possible way though, right?” Because you’re killing me, too.
                “You have no idea.”
                I hear the sheets rustling, and I know he’s in bed. Oh, what I wouldn’t give to be there next to him.
                “I think I have an idea.”
                “Are you really naked?”
                “Do you want me to be?”
                “Damn,” he mumbles. “I would kill to be over there right now. You know that, don’t you? You know that if I didn’t have Nova here, I’d be there in a heartbeat.”
                “I know.” My heart melts at his sweet words.
                “I haven’t been inside of you in days.” His voice is low and raspy, his drawl much more prominent, something that happens when he’s turned on.
                “Soon.”
                “Really?” he admonishes. “Because I’m beginning to think it’ll never happen again.”
                I chuckle. “You miss my body that much, huh?”
                He’s silent for a few beats, and then he takes a deep breath and blows me away with his words.
                “It’s more than your body, Lennon. It’s your scent and the way it wraps itself around me. It’s the way your eyes sparkle when you smile and the sound of your laughter throughout my house. And how you are with my daughter. You’re amazing with her. You’re gentle and kind and loving and… it’s everything. It’s you. I miss you.”
                “Noah?”
                “What?”
                “Unlock your door.”
                I end the call, and two seconds later, I’m hauling ass out the front door in my pajamas. When I hit the bottom step of his porch and find Noah half-naked in front of his open door, wearing nothing but a pair of low-slung sweats, I nearly lose my breath. I’m not sure if it’s the tattoos crawling up his arms, or the way he’s hanging on to the top of the door frame—it could even be his warm, brown eyes, which are eating me from top to bottom—but he looks different.
                “What took you so long?” His slow, sexy grin pulls me in, and I walk straight into his open arms.
                I pull my bottom lip between my teeth and smile. “I had to put clothes on.”
                In an instant, Noah scoops me up, kicks the door shut, and is moving down his hall.
                “Why the hell would you do something like that?”

Release Blitz & Review for Switch by Adriana Locke




Title: Switch
Series: Landry Family #3
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: February 20, 2017



Blurb

Mallory Sims is late for her first day of work.

After spilling her tea, she discovers she has no gas in her car. Add that her arm keeps sticking to her dress from syrup left on the console of her car, flustered feels like an understatement.

Then she sees her new boss.

Graham Landry is the epitome of NSFW in his custom-fit suit, black-rimmed glasses, and a look so stern her libido doesn’t stand a chance. Being flustered is just the start of her problems.

Her punctuality is only the start of his. With a pink slip in hand, he’s been waiting on his new secretary to show up only to let her go. Then she rushes in with her doe eyes and rambling excuses, smelling like bacon and lavender. The termination paper falls to the side as she falls in his arms.

This is a disaster in the making. Not because of his pinpoint exactness or her free spirit, but because when they’re together, the sparks that fly threaten to burn the whole place down.

Excerpt

We both know we aren’t just talking about a moved stapler or a mishmash of files. As that really sets in, the air around us gets heavier. Hotter. Hazardous.

“Those things always lead to dangerous situations,” he says, his eyes trained on me.

I shift in my seat, the throb between my legs growing stronger by the second. “People do it every day and survive.”

“They may survive, but don’t things get messy?”

“Only if they do it right.”

His chair flies backwards and he’s to his feet and next to me before I know what’s happening. He doesn’t ask that I stand, but he doesn’t have to. It’s implied and my body reacts accordingly to his silent command.

We stand face-to-face, our breathing ragged. Our chests heave with the anticipation, the possibility, of what might come next.

“You are, quite possibly, the most dangerous of them all,” he says, his voice rough.

“Why is that?” I breathe.

“There’s no plan for you.”

“But you’ve already penciled me in, haven’t you, Graham?” I ask, finding the courage to play this little game with him. Being strictly professional is incredibly hard, and this is way too easy.

I can flirt with the best of them in a bar or on a college campus. But here, with him, it’s a game all its own. A level I had no idea I’d ever be a contender in. Maybe I’m not, but I’m going to play the hell out of it while I’m here … even though if I keep it up, I might not be here for long.

“What do you want, Mallory?”

“I want to do all the things you ask of me and do them better than you ever expected they could be done.”

A rumble emits from his throat as his eyes darken. My knees go weak and I grab the table with my left hand to ensure I don’t fall.

He licks his lips and flips his gaze to my mouth. I think I whimper as I lift my chin, waiting to see what he does next. My entire body is on fire for this man, my heart thumping so hard I’m sure he can hear it.

He moves so my back is pressed against the table, our food long forgotten. His hands are on either side of me, caging me in. Our eyes locked together, he leans in, a slow smirk spreading across his gorgeous face.

“Excuse me, Mr. Landry. Ford is here to see you,” Raza chirps through the line.

We exhale simultaneously, a giggle escaping with mine. There’s nothing funny about this, but the energy has to come out in some way.

“Mr. Landry?” she asks again.

“I’ll be right out. Thank you, Raza.”

“Oh, you’re so welcome, sir.” The line clicks off and Graham marches across the room and punches a button. The light on top indicates he’s not to be disturbed.

I busy myself with cleaning up our lunch, and before he’s at my side again, I have everything bundled up.

“Thanks for lunch,” I say like nothing just happened.

“Mallory …” He runs his hand through his hair, leaving one lock sticking up. Knowing what that will look like if we walk out together, I reach up, hesitating for a split second, before smoothing it out.

His hair is silky against my fingers. He jumps when I touch him at first, but doesn’t back away. “What are you doing?”

“Nothing went on in here. I refuse for it to look like something did. That’s the way rumors get spread, Mr. Landry.”

“Mallory, I …”

I get a final look at his face, reach up and straighten his tie as his eyes go wide, then turn towards the door. “I’ll send Ford in.”

“Mallory!”

“Yeah?” I turn to see him over my shoulder. He’s standing by the table, his hands in his pockets looking frazzled. When he doesn’t respond, I place my hand on the knob. “I’ll have that file back to you before I leave today. Thanks again for lunch.”

I walk out before I can change my mind.

Review: 5 STARS!!

Another amazing book by Adriana Locke!! These Landry brothers just get better and better with every book!! This book was a great read with great characters!!

Mallory is one of my favorite female lead characters that Adriana Locke has written. She is sweet, hard working, smart, determined and she is the perfect match for Graham. Mallory didn't make the best first impression, but she showed Graham what she was made of that changed his mind about her!! The banter between Graham & Mallory was funny and I swear, sometimes, it was just foreplay. Graham is always in control. He is the go to Landry brother and has a strict order for everything in his life, so when Mallory comes into his life, she turns it upside down, but in the best way possible. These two characters were each others ying and yang. Their relationship was passionate, messy in the best way and so right. I fell in love with Graham and Mallory and their story right from the beginning.

Adriana Locke has such a talent for writing and with every book, her writing gets better and better. This book had me laughing & swooning and just loving every second of reading it. I can't wait for the next installment in the Landry Brothers series!!

Review for Black Hearts by Karina Halle


Title: Black Hearts
Series: Sins Duet #1
Author: Karina Halle
Publisher: Metal Blonde Books
Published: February 18, 2017

Synopsis

Sexy & Sinful...Vicente is the alpha male to die for...
From New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle comes a BRAND NEW standalone duet that will get your pulse racing.

For Vicente Bernal, truth is all he's known. The son of an infamous drug lord, Vicente was born to help run the family business, which means he's been raised on a throne of sordid pasts and dirty laundry, violence and pride. But when Vicente stumbles across someone he's not supposed to know about - a woman from his father's checkered past - he sets out to California to find her behind his father's back.

What Vicente doesn't expect to find in San Francisco is Violet McQueen, the woman's twenty-year old daughter. Beautiful and edgy with a vulnerability he can't resist, Violet tempts Vicente from afar and though he promised himself he'd stay away from her, curiosity and lust are powerful forces. Besides, Vicente has always gotten everything he wants - why shouldn't he have Violet too?

Soon his wants turn into an obsession, one that sweeps Violet into his games as they fall madly, deeply in love with each other, the type of first love that can drive a person mad.

But it's a love with tragic consequences.

Both the truth - and the lies - not only threaten to tear them apart, but threaten their very lives.

Someone has to pay for the sins of the fathers.

And they'll be paying the price with their souls.

NOTE: BLACK HEARTS is BOOK ONE of the SINS DUET, with the sequel & conclusion, DIRTY SOULS, releasing on March 17, 2017.

Review: 5 STARS!!

Let me just start by saying that it is not necessary to read any of the back story before starting this book. With that said, OH MY GOSH THIS BOOK WAS FANTASTIC!! Black Hearts will grip your heart and soul and dig its claws into you until you are so consumed by these characters and this story that you don't know up from down. 

Violet was such an intriguing character. She wasn't your normal girl next door, yet she also wasn't your normal bad@$$ chick (usually the heroine is one of those types). She was unique because she felt...everything!! She was misunderstood and just wanted to be free. When she met Vicente, it was like she could breathe for the first time. He brought her out of her head and she showed him the beauty of the world, well at least of San Francisco. Violet was smart and very observant. I loved being inside her head, it was always entertaining. I loved the suspense around her family and her and her brother, Ben, figuring out secrets that their parents have tried to hide. My heart went out to Ben for what he found out and how he found out. I hope that that situation gets handled and no one is too damaged by the outcome. I understand Violet's need to be free and I want that for her, but I also want her to be safe and I truly hope that she gets her happy ending with Vicente that she and he deserve. The passion that Vicente ignites insides of Violet was seriously off the charts hot (I was fanning myself throughout all of the scenes) and I loved that she got out of her head and was in the moment with Vicente.

Vicente is downright sexy. He is a very cunning man who knows what he wants and goes after it and doesn't let anything or anyone stand in his way. In the beginning, I felt bad for what he was trying to pull with Violet, but then seeing him change from playing her to falling in love with her, was wonderfully twisted to see unfold. Vicente is a very determined man and he is very protective and possessive of Violet. I love the dominant man in him when he and Violet are having sexy times. He knows exactly what she wants and needs and delivers it gladly to her. I love that even with the short amount of time that he has known her, he gets her better than anyone else. I felt bad for what Vicente went through as a boy and what he was forced to do at such a young age, but at the same time, his dad is Javier Bernal, so I would expect nothing less. Vicente may have started off with wrong intentions, but by the end of the book, he would lay down his life for Violet and I just loved his character!!

Honestly, I never read any of the back story books and while reading this book, by not reading those books, it made it that much more intense and suspenseful. I will definitely go back and read them just because they are by Karina Halle, but also because I would love to know all of the parents' past. Karina Halle knocked this book out of the park and I am so ANXIOUS for the next book to come out in March!!!

Paperback Release & Review for He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker


Title: He Will Be My Ruin
Author: K.A. Tucker
Publisher: Atria Books
Published: February 2, 2016

Synopsis

A woman who almost had it all…

On the surface, Celine Gonzalez had everything a twenty-eight-year-old woman could want: a one-bedroom apartment on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, a job that (mostly) paid the bills, and an acceptance letter to the prestigious Hollingsworth Institute of Art, where she would finally live out her dream of becoming an antiques appraiser for a major auction house. All she had worked so hard to achieve was finally within her reach. So why would she kill herself?

A man who was supposed to be her salvation…


Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what’s left of her best friend’s belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a lethal cocktail of pills and vodka, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers a scandalous photograph in a lock box hidden in Celine’s apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man Celine believed would change her life.

Until he became her ruin.

On the hunt for evidence that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine’s private life—and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer. A killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.

Review: 5 STARS!!

This book was absolutely AMAZING!!! I have always been a fan of K.A. Tucker's writing and this book just blew me away!! He Will Be My Ruin was filled with suspense, romance & mystery.

Maggie is the ultimate best friend anyone could ask for. Her friendship with Celine went deeper than that they were like sisters to each other. I loved that Maggie cared enough to question everything surrounding Celine's death. She knew her better than anyone, and some things don't add up. Maggie was tenacious and I loved that about her character. Maggie was a very giving person and she had such a big heart; she wanted to help everyone. I loved that we got to know Celine through her journal and Maggie; it was like Celine's character lived on through them. You could tell why Maggie & Celine were best friends, Celine was sweet and caring, just like Maggie, but there was some discoveries that Maggie made about Celine, that shocked her.The whole mystery that Maggie was uncovering and the different people that she met throughout the book just made the story that much more interesting. I felt like I was on the journey with Maggie and felt all her emotions; grief, happiness, frustration, anger, etc.

 This book had me on the edge of my seat throughout almost the whole book, but I also experienced other emotions; I laughed a bit, shed a few tears, and I definitely was suspcisious of almost everyone!! I loved the air of mystery and unknowning that came along with reading He Will Be My Ruin.  K.A. Tucker is a master with words and stories and He Will Be My Ruin is one of he most enjoyable suspense books that I have ever read. I cannot wait to see what K.A. Tucker comes out with next!!

About Entwined:

Sidney 

 10 years. 3,650 days. 87,600 hours. 

 That’s how long it has been since I saw my best friend. But who’s counting? Walking away from Luke Thomas was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but the choice was out of my hands. I left Las Vegas a seventeen-year-old girl, afraid and alone, and returned about the same. I was forced into a situation I didn’t want to be in. Until that day. I haven’t seen him in ten long years, but one look at the man he became and that killer smile, and I knew I would never be the same. 

  Luke 

 Life goes on. 

 I learned that valuable piece of information at a young age, but sometimes a memory creeps up and smacks me square in the face. Or more accurately, a person. The day my best friend walked away was the day I realized I’d never be the same. My life became work, family, and women, and I was doing great. Then she walked back into my life. One look at the grown-version of Sidney Rogen leaves me breathless and yearning for more. 

  But love is never easy. 

 And our love story isn’t perfect. 
 In a heartbeat, one person can wrap around you so tightly, you’re entwined forever. That’s our love.

Exclusive Excerpt:

Luke

10 years ago

“So, I’m sure you see why I think we should break up, right? I mean, we’re both heading off to college soon, and I want to experience everything that college life has to offer.”
I gape at Jessica, my girlfriend for the past five months. Wants to experience everything? That’s code for ‘wants to sleep around.’ I’m a dude. I know.
“And you just had to do this tonight?” I ask, looking back at the doorway that leads inside my house. The same house where my entire family and a good amount of my friends are gathered to celebrate my high school graduation.
“Well, I just thought it was best to cut the cord now, you know? Like…just do it.”
“Whatever, Jess. If you want to break up now, that’s fine.”
“Really?” she asks, twirling her long brown hair around her pointer finger. “You’re gonna be okay?” She gives me those big brown, puppy dog eyes that won over my heart–and my dick–during Christmas break.
I’ve known this moment was coming since I started dating Jessica. I didn’t see anything long-term developing with her. Call me an asshole, but I knew she was just someone to help me pass the time during my final year of high school. But I also knew going into this that she felt the same way. I guess, in a way, we both used each other to keep ourselves company until we moved on to the next stage in our lives.
“I’m going to be fine, Jess. We both knew it was coming to this eventually, right?”
She continues to twirl her hair around her fingers. Why had I never noticed how fucking annoying that was? “Listen, we had a great time. If you’re ever in the Seattle area, look me up, ‘kay? We can maybe spend some time together for ol’ times’ sake.” Her smile tells me exactly what her comment means. She’s looking to hook up again if I’m ever close to where she’s attending college.
“Maybe,” I reply with a shrug.
As much fun as I’ve had with Jess in the last few months, I don’t see myself reaching out to her anytime in the future. The sex has always been all right, but nothing I see myself driving upwards of eighteen hours to get. There’s plenty of mediocre ass left in Vegas if I’m that desperate for a hook up. And, honestly, as an eighteen-year-old red-blooded male on the verge of experiencing college life, I’m pretty sure I’ll have no problem moving forward from here.
“Bye, Luke. It’s been fun,” she says before placing her full lips against mine. The kiss is brief, closed mouth, and lacks the usual tongue and groping we generally partake in. This kiss is goodbye.
I watch as she walks away, heading around the side of the house so she doesn’t have to go back the way she came; where my entire family celebrates. Gazing out over the darkened backyard, it’s not lost on me that there’s no going back from here. That I’m finally leaving the only home I’ve ever known. I’ve graduated high school, will start UNLV in a couple of months, and will finally be out from under the controlling thumb of my mother. Ever since I was younger, Blake and I chalked it up to me being the baby of the family for her ever-present hovering and involvement in my life.
It’s time for me to grow up and experience life.
And I’m starting it without a girlfriend.
The slightest sound of something thumping against wood pulls my attention away from the emptiness of night and towards the small fort in the back corner of the yard. Built ten years ago out of pieces of scrap wood we’d find around the neighborhood, the fort was my brother’s and my escape from the house. We’d spend hours upon hours in that thing, playing with GI Joes, having Nerf gun wars, and when we were older, sneaking off to steal our first kisses.
But I know the noise coming from inside isn’t from my brother. There’s only one person who still uses that fort: our neighbor, Sidney.

We all have one.

 A price.

 That magic number that will get us to agree to do anything, be anything. 

Don’t sit on your gold-plated high horse and say you don’t because you do. Everyone does. Each of us has something we covet enough that we’d sell ourselves to have it. 

 What’s my tipping point, you ask? Apparently a cool quarter mil will do the trick.

 What does one do for 250 large, you wonder? Anything the infamous, gorgeous playboy of Seattle wants. For the next four months I’ll be Shaw Mercer’s arm candy, his beck and call girl, his faux girlfriend. I’ll be his to command, mold, push and pull in any direction he sees fit.

 I’ll fight falling into bed with him. I’ll fight falling in love with him even harder. I’ll fail at both. And when my past and present collide in the most unexpected of ways, I’ll learn that while one man’s love for me has never died, the only man’s love I really want will never be mine.

About the Author:
As a USA Today Bestselling author, I write stories that are deeply emotional with flawed characters, because humans ARE flawed and if we read about perfect characters living in their perfect world, first of all, snoozer, but secondly, we never experience the gratification of redemption. Outside of writing, I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).

Drake Powers had to be the most infuriating piece of work I’d met in my entire life. Never mind his gorgeous face, body, and tattoos. That was beside the point. The things that came out of the cocky bastard’s mouth—directed toward me, of course—had my own mouth falling open in shock.

His controlling, bad-boy demeanor should’ve had me running in the other direction.
But there was something behind that dominant presence of his.

Something guarded.

And I had to find out what it was.

I knew it was probably in my best interest to stay away.

But when was I ever one to listen?


  

  

Harper Bentley has taught high school English for 24 years. Although she’s managed to maintain her sanity regardless of her career choice, jumping into the world of publishing her own books goes to show that she might be closer to the ledge than was previously thought.

After traveling the nation in her younger years as a military brat, having lived in Alaska, Washington State and California, she now resides in Oklahoma with her teenage daughter, two dogs and one cat, happily writing stories that she hopes her readers will enjoy.
