Spotlight Tour for Dash Vol. 2 by Shantel Tessier

Title: Dash Vol. 2
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Adult, Romance
Release Date: December 30, 2014
I should have walked away that day at the race track. I should have turned my back on Dash and all the feelings I started to have for him. He lied to me. He was keeping secrets from not only my father but me as well. But I couldn’t. There were too many unanswered questions that I needed to know and he promised to tell me. But promises are made to be broken, right? 

I lied. Not because I needed to but because I could. Tabatha was smart, though. She is gonna figure out sooner or later that who I am and who she thinks I am are two very different people. She deserves the truth. But how do I know what the truth is anymore?

My heart pounds in my chest and my body trembles. I gasp, trying to catch my breath.
“You sure know how to stroke a man’s ego,” Dash’s voice whispers into my ear as his hand slides between our bodies and his fingers find my clit. I gasp as he starts to massage it. He chuckles as he buries his face deeper into my neck.
I arch my back, allowing him better access as I suck in another breath. “You’re the one doing all the work,” I pant as his body lies on top of mine.
I feel him smile against my neck. I let out a shriek as he rolls over and pulls me on top of him. He looks up to me with a smirk on his face. A few strands of dark hair stick to his slick forehead. “You can have all the control you want, darling.” I’m momentarily paralyzed as his light gray eyes stare up into mine. The morning light coming in through the window makes them sparkle. The smirk grows across his face as he places his hands behind his head. Arrogant bastard. He knows what he does to me when he looks at me like that. Like I’m the only woman in the world. Like neither one of us have a past. Like we’re not hiding from the present. I don’t know what our future holds, but at the moment, it goes on forever.
I run my hands up his smooth and hard chest, the sweat from our bodies making it slippery. I want to taste him in every way. To the point that it may make me sound somewhat insane. Leaning down, I place my lips on his chest and give him a soft kiss. I continue giving him soft kisses as I slide my body down his
 
He lifts his hips and he lets out a deep growl as I wrap my fingers around the base of his dick. I wet my lips and lower my mouth over him as his hands find their way into my hair. So much for being in charge. I don’t mind it, though. He can have all the control over me that he wants.
He lets out a moan as I pull him to the back of my throat. I let out a noise of my own when I taste myself on him. As I go to pull up, his hands in my hair grip me tighter and he lifts his hips, pushing deeper into my mouth. I try to fight the urge to pull back, to fight his control. He’s not Rodger, I tell myself.
“Fuck…Oh…” I run my eyes up his body lying on the white sheets. His stomach muscles clench and his chest rises and falls quickly. His head is thrown back, his jaw tight, as he sucks in breaths through clenched teeth. It’s a sight to see—me allowing him to take pleasure from me the way that he wants. I relax, allowing him to have his way with my mouth as I just allowed him to have my body.
I take him as deep and as fast as he wants to go. And he wants it fast. He doesn’t let up. My jaw is sore and my cheeks hurt but it’s worth it. Anything is worth hearing that man come with my name on his lips.
Once he’s finished, he releases my hair and I pull away from him with a satisfied smile on my face. He grabs me by the shoulders and throws me down beside him. “You’re amazing,” he breathes as he pushes some hair off of my face.
I take in a deep breath. “Not so bad yourself,” I tease.
His smile widens. “So much for stroking my ego,” he mumbles.
I arch an eyebrow. “I think I’ve stroked enough,” I respond, making him fill his bedroom with laughter.

I open my eyes and look at myself in the mirror. I have streaks running down my face from the tears I’ve cried in the last hour. It’s crazy how that memory was from just this morning. We were lying in his bed laughing as we were getting ready for round two. Now I’m standing in the restroom at the hospital waiting to see if he’s gonna be okay.
Dash crashed! It happened so fast that it didn’t register at first. He was riding along on the track after our talk. I had almost left him. I was so pissed at the fact that he was keeping some serious secrets from me. Hell, I thought that Valerie was telling the truth and that she was indeed his girlfriend. My father even believed her. Acted like he knew her. But after talking to him, I believed him. Then he jumped back on his bike and went to finish his practice run.


Review:
5++ STARS!!
This book was such a wild & hot ride! This was the continuation of Dash & Tabatha's story and it just got better! Their chemistry is out of this world and their feelings are starting to go deeper than what they both originally had in mind. I love that Dash encourages Tabatha to be herself and pushes her towards doing bigger & better things. Tabatha supports Dash and the way that they are both so protective over each other is beautiful. The suspense throughout the book kept me on the edge of my seat and biting my nails. I wanted to jump into he book and just tell them who is behind everything. I am so excited for the third installment of Dash & Tabatha's story!! Great job Shantel Tessier!

Frozen Cover synopsis Neala Clarke is a woman of her word, when she gives you it, expect her to deliver. Neala gave her niece Charli her word that she would get her a doll for Christmas. Never mind that there is only one week until Christmas and everywhere that stocked toys is practically sold out. Neala gave her word that she would get that doll for Charli, so she will move mountains to make it happen. Darcy Hart is a people pleaser, when he is asked last minute for a doll by his adorable six year old nephew Dustin, he of course, says yes. However, Darcy faces a dilemma, the particular doll he needs is sold out everywhere. Darcy makes one last attempt to get the doll at a local toy store, and finds out they have only one left in stock, but he also finds out he is not the only person interested in claiming the doll. Neala and Darcy go way back, playing in each other’s play pens kind of way back. They are not friends, more like mortal enemies, and both of them wanting a single doll was the start of a series of events that no one could have predicted, not even Father Christmas himself.

Frozen Teaser #1

excerpt
It all happened in slow motion. Darcy was shouting at me from inside of the tunnel one minute, and the next his upper body disappeared as the roof of the snow tunnel collapsed in on top of him. It literally collapsed on top of him and now he wasn't moving. At all. For at least twenty seconds I did nothing but stare at him then my senses kicked into overdrive. "Darcy!" I screamed, and threw my blanket off my body as I rushed over to him. I licked my lips and stared down at his body with wide eyes, and shaking limbs. My heart was slamming into my chest, and each pulse got louder and louder. I could hear each beat my heart took and my ears rang with the noise. "Darcy!" I shouted hoping he would make a noise from under the snow or at least move his legs. Nothing. Not a sound or kick from him. I really started to worry then, the thought of him drowning crossed my mind. I mean, snow was made of water and he was buried under the snow, which meant he was technically under water right now. Fuck. I had to save him. I dropped my candle to the ground and ignored it as the glass bowl that encased the candle smashed causing it to blow out. It was darker now, but the rest of the candles along the hallway were still lit so I could see pretty well. "Darcy, don't worry!" I shouted. "I'm gonna get you out of there!" I dropped to my knees and began to scoop handfuls of snow off his body. I threw the snow onto the pile Darcy created while digging the tunnel off to my right, but I had to stop because my hands hurt with the cold. I instead moved to Darcy legs and gripped onto them and pulled. I pulled with all of my might and the idiot's body only slightly moved. "Move!" I shouted and pulled at his legs again. I held onto Darcy with every fibre of strength I had and pulled again, and by the grace of God, his body moved. It actually moved. I was strong! "Yes!" I cheered. I scrambled up to Darcy's back when his shoulders became visible. I placed my hands on both of them and pulled as hard as physically possible, the wet floor under Darcy made him slide which made things so much easier for me and my arms. "You're out!" I cheered. Darcy was gasping for air so I rolled him over so he could suck in as much air as he needed. His eyes were closed, but his body was shaking. I instinctively placed my hands on his arms, directly on his biceps. His firm biceps. Stop it. I began to rub up and down very fast hoping to generate some heat for Darcy to ease his shivering. All the rubbing was pointless though, unless I got him up off the cold wet floor he would just get sick. "Darcy, stand up," I said. He didn't move, nor did he reply to me. That worried me. I looked to Darcy's face and found his eyes were still closed. I looked down to his chest and saw it was moving up and down which relaxed me immensely. "Darcy!" I said loudly, shaking him. "Darcy!" Einstein called from the kitchen. I screeched, "Shut up, Einstein!" Stupid bloody bird. I looked back down to Darcy when I thought I heard him chuckle, but I was mistaken because he was motionless with his eyes still closed. This wouldn't do, I had to wake him up because we'd be stuck in this house if he didn't fix the tunnel and continue to dig so we could get out of here. Was that selfish? "Darcy!" I shouted and shook him, hard. He groaned and it caused my pulse to spike. "Neala?" he croaked. He was alive! "Yes, Darcy, it's Neala. I'm here. It's okay, I saved you." I was so proud of myself for saving him, too. "Neala," he gasped my name again, and this time it was followed by a cough. I frowned down at him. Why was he coughing? "Are you okay?" I asked, genuinely concerned for his well being. Darcy coughed again. "I don't think so... everything is fading." Oh, my God. Fading? As in fading to black? "Don't you die and leave me here alone!" I snapped at him. I may have still hated him close to ninety percent, but I didn't want him to die... I also didn't want to be left on my own with just Einstein for company. "I'm... I'm dying... Neala." Oh, no. "You can't be, you weren't under the snow for that long- Darcy!" I screeched and shook him when he started to go limp. "Neala," he gasped. "Come closer." I couldn't believe what was happening. This was not how things were supposed to end, we were supposed to get out of here... together. "I'm here, Darcy," I said and swallowed back a sob that wanted to escape. Darcy's breathing slowed. "I can see the light," he whispered. I blinked back tears. "Go to the light, Darcy." Darcy gasped for breath, then all of sudden everything stopped. His movement. His breathing. His everything. Oh, no. "Darcy?" I whispered. Nothing. Oh, my God. "Please don't be dead," I said then released the sob that was dying to be let out. I stared down at Darcy's face, and I couldn't believe what just happened. He died in my arms. What was I going to do? I never even told him I was sorry for giving him the runs, or for all the other times I was a bitch to him, and now I would never get the chance. I felt like dirt. I began to cry, but Darcy's body suddenly twitched then he inhaled sharply, and loudly. I blinked then widened my eyes in shock. "Darcy?" I whispered. Darcy blinked opened his big brown eyes. He was alive! "Am I in Heaven?" he asked. He thought he was dead! Darcy blinked his eyes a couple of times then he flicked his eyes to mine and he stared at me for a long moment before he sighed. "Nope, not Heaven. This must be Hell if you're here," he said, his face was as serious as if he just told me someone had a heart attack. I stared down at him then narrowed my eyes. Ex-fucking-cuse me? "What?" I asked, completely confused. Darcy looked at me then burst out laughing. Laughing! I gasped and dropped him to the floor. He grunted in pain, but continued to laugh. That... that fucking bastard! He played me. "You joked about dying?" I screeched. Who does that? Frozen Teaser #2

5++ STARS!!
Oh my gosh!! This book was hysterical and beautifully written!! I absolutely loved reading this book. Right from the first page it had my attention! Neala was sarcastic, funny, strong and fierce. She didn't take anyone's crap and if you dished it out to her she gave it back to you ten times worse! I loved her character so much!! Darcy, he was funny, sexy & loved Neala. He may have not admitted it to himself and denied any feelings towards Neala, but you could tell that he loved her. This was such a beautiful holdiday story and I cannot wait to see what L.A. Casey comes out with next!! Great job L.A. Casey!!

KEEPING KING
Author: Anne Jolin
Genre: Erotic Romance
Series: Rock Falls #4 
~ SYNOPSIS ~
***Can be read as a standalone or as part of the Rock Falls series.***

Peyton Callaghan is a fighter, a survivor, a warrior. When it was kill or be killed, she didn’t hesitate. Now, she’s the only one left standing, haunted by the ghost of a dead man and plagued with the guilt of having taken another person’s life. The upheaval of her life to start over in Rock Falls has been rocky at best, her worst nightmares and wildest desires colliding with each other. Terror tortures her nightly, breeding fear inside her dreams, and in every waking moment, she fights against the lust that threatens to drown her. 

Jayden King harbors secrets beneath his outward playboy demeanor. The women who warm his bed lay claim to nothing—you can’t lay claim to someone who doesn’t have a heart. His wit and charm are exquisite means of deflection and distraction from the turmoil roaring inside him. He’s hidden in plain sight, a mask of humor keeping the sadness at bay. The only real reflections of his soul are in the artwork he creates, pieces of him muraled on the skin of others. If tattoo artists could have a calling card, the etch of pain and suffering in each design would be his. Because when the lights go out and the women he’s satisfied have gone home, he’s alone with every fear he refuses to face.

After suffering from a brutal attack at the hands of her roommate’s stalker, Peyton is forced to live with the object of her affection. Without intention, she breathes love into his starved heart, and although the mere thought of that terrifies him, Jayden would burn the city down to keep her safe, causalities be damned. 

Some people you have. Some people you hold. 

She can have him. She can hold him. But can she keep King? Or is it impossible for Callaghan to keep something that was never really hers to begin with?

~ ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~
Anne Jolin
I’m twenty four years old. I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside of Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns and riding in trucks. I’ve been married to my handsome redneck husband for a year and we are parents to our chocolate fur baby, Bear. No kiddo’s yet! I am completely and utterly obsessed with country music, you will constantly find me stalking iTunes. If you don’t find me on iTunes, you’ll find me on Netflix because I am a self proclaimed movie junkie. Yes, that means that I quote them constantly in daily conversation and my characters do too! You couldn’t keep me away from a good action movie if you tried. I’m also a planning nut. I love to plan parties, events, trips – you name it! I don’t know if that’s considered a real hobby, but it is for me. 

We were fortunate enough to travel a lot as a family growing up, and I think that helped spark my love of reading. I’m half Viking, my mom is Danish, and her entire side of the family still lives in Denmark. We’d visit them almost once a year, every year and it’s a nine hour flight. That’s a lot of uninterrupted time to read (or in my parent’s case, entertain four children – Yikes!). Somewhere along the way my love of reading, became a love of writing. I wrote short stories when I was younger, and although I majored in Business Management at college, I took as many English electives I could get my hands on. 

During the day I work at my family construction company wearing a variety of different hats and at night, I write! I had never thought about writing books before, but after a few suggestions that I should try, I decided to give it a go. I loved it instantly! Having always been a creative person, it felt amazing to harness all that energy and use it to tell a story. Now, quite frankly it’s all I can think about, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m grateful to have developed my love of reading into a passion for writing. You’ll be seeing many more books from me in the future!

Title: Initiate Me
Author: Elle Raven
Series: Barossa Series, Book 2
Release Date: December 27, 2014
Genre: Erotic Romance

 Add to Goodreads


One dominant alpha male.
One innocent bewitching woman.
Equals one explosive attraction.

Mia Brunetti is far too busy with her studies to worry about having a man in her life. Growing up with three unruly and overprotective brothers has made her wary of men in general. That goes double if he's your brother’s best friend.

For years, Mia has worshipped Zane Mitchell and has avoided him and hidden her heart behind a wall. She has waited her entire life for Zane to see her as more than her brother's little sister. Now that she’s old enough to stake her claim on him, she’s pulling out all the sexual stops.

Zane has sworn off all women…until innocent Mia catches his attention. He is a devastatingly, masculine male who makes Mia's imagination go wild, but Zane has desires that would send innocent Mia running. The recently injured ex-cop is now working for the Brunetti family empire. As part of Mia's internship, Mia's brothers have placed her under Zane's wing. He is more than willing to take Mia up on her offer. The fun and games tie them both up in knots. Mia isn’t willing to settle for less than the whole package. But dominant Zane, even though the sexy country girl sets his blood ablaze, is determined to resist her efforts to protect his battered heart and her from his needs.
