Book Release and Review: Playing Dirty by Tiffany Snow

Playing-Dirty-Tiffany-Snow-Release-Week-Blitz

Faced with a choice between bad-boy detective Dean Ryker and sexy power player Parker Anderson, Sage Reece fought the law-and the law won. But while Ryker’s sizzling touch may rule her nights, Sage’s days belong to Parker’s cool, calculating intensity . . .

Both Ryker and Parker are determined to protect Sage from a brutal enemy who’d use her to pay for their mistakes. Yet when the usually on-point Ryker is distracted by ghosts from his past, Parker seizes his opportunity to get Sage’s attention . . . and keep it in ways beyond her wildest dreams.

Now, caught between a mobster out for revenge and two men who were once best friends, Sage must play to win-even if it means getting dirty . . .

MY Review

Tiffany Snow is one of my go to authors and yes it is because she writes love triangles like no one else.  No one gets close to her.  Some people hate them.  I absolutely love them.  I finished Power Play, the first installment of the Risky Business Trilogy and I do not have a favorite guy.  I enjoy Park and Ryker for totally different reasons and quite honestly I am still foggy after finishing Playing Dirty on whose team I am on.

Playing Dirty picks up four months after the end of Power Play and we get a little insight into what Parker, Sage and Ryker have been up to in the last couple of months.  Sage is playing house with Ryker but still has feelings for Parker.  Ryker is making it clear to Sage that he is in it for the long haul.  He cares for Sage deeply.  Parker has tried to keep his distance from Sage but inevitably that isn’t working out for him.

Of course in true Tiffany fashion, Sage is in danger from two potential threats, one from Ryker and one from Parker.  Ryker must go back undercover and this causes some problems between him and Sage.  And you guessed it, Sage runs right into Parker’s arms.  The ending is explosive and literally has Sage choosing one over the other.  Who does she choose?

I thoroughly loved Playing Dirty.  We get more of the love triangle angst.  Sage truly loves both of these men.  We get more of the background of Parker and Ryker’s broken friendship. You can’t help but understand how deeply they both are hurt by their pasts.  The action is fantastic and the pace is pulse pounding all the way to the end.  February can’t get here soon enough for the ending to this story!

Cover Reveal: The Play by Karina Halle

 

A troubled Scottish rugby player who doesn’t play by the rules.
A vivacious man-eater who’s given up on love.
When it comes to Lachlan and Kayla, opposites don’t just attract – they explode.

Kayla Moore has always been comfortable with her feisty, maneating reputation. At least it was fine until she hit her thirties and saw her best friends Stephanie and Nicola settle down with Linden and Bram McGregor, leaving Kayla to be the odd one out. Tired of being the third wheel with nothing but one-night stands and dead-end dates in San Francisco, Kayla decides to take a vow of celibacy and put men on the backburner.

That is until she lays her eyes on Linden and Bram’s cousin, hot Scot Lachlan McGregor. Lachlan is her sexual fantasy come to life – tall, tatted, and built like a Mack truck. With a steely gaze and successful rugby career back in Edinburgh, he’s the kind of man that makes her want to throw her vow right out the window. But Lachlan’s quiet and intense demeanor makes him a hard man to get to know, let alone get close to.

It isn’t until the two of them are thrown together one long, unforgettable night that Kayla realizes there is so much more to this brooding macho man than what meets the eye. But even with sparks flying between the two, Lachlan can’t stay in America forever. Now, Kayla has to decide whether to uproot her whole life and chance it all on someone she barely knows or risk getting burned once again.
Sometimes love is a game that just needs to be played.

Sinful Desire - Release Week Teaser 3

ABOUT SINFUL DESIRE:

This book contains Lauren Blakely’s hottest, dirtiest, and most dominating hero ever! Panties optional when reading this sinfully sexy STANDALONE novel in the NYT Bestselling Sinful Nights series!

He gave her the most mind-blowing night of pleasure ever. He made her want to get down on her knees. He dominated her in ways she’d only dreamed of. And she didn’t even know his name…

Control.

It’s what Ryan Sloan values most. Control of his business, control of his secrets, control of his days and nights. With the way his life spiraled in the past, he needs to stay in charge of his present.

Giving up control.

It’s what Sophie Winston craves. After a wildly successful career, she’s stepped away from the business world and is now focused on her work as her city’s most noted philanthropist.

When she meets Ryan Sloan, the chemistry is scorching, and utterly undeniable. Their desire for each other runs red hot. He wants everything she’s willing to give him in bed, and she wants him to take her to new heights as only he can.

Soon, he has to have more. All of her — heart, mind and body.

The only trouble is, he hasn’t been honest about how he met her and the dangerous connection he has to her brother.

When the truth is revealed, he’ll have to give more of himself than he’s bargained for or risk losing the only woman he’s ever let into his heart.

SINFUL DESIRE is book two in SINFUL NIGHTS, a four-book series. Each full-length novel features a new couple. This high-heat, high-stakes sexy romance series follows the Sloan family as each sibling falls madly in love against the backdrop of sin, money, greed, passion, mystery and suspense…

My Review

Control.  It’s the one thing that Ryan Sloan must have.  After the events of his childhood, he has remade himself into a savvy businessman.  He controls everything in his life and especially his secrets.  Sophie Winston is the polar opposite of Ryan.  Her deepest desire is to give up control.  She sold her company for millions and is now set on enjoying life and doing nothing but philanthropic work.

When these two meet, the chemistry is downright explosive and undeniable.  Their desire for each other was immediate.  Ryan can’t get enough of Sophie.  He wants more but Ryan holds a secret that could ruin everything between them.  Will he give up his control, give more of himself than he ever has all for the sake of the woman he has fallen in love with?

If you haven’t read any of this series, Ryan Sloan and all of his siblings are introduced in Sweet Sinful Nights. Sinful Desire is definitely a romantic suspense as their is an underlying storyline running through the romance. The events that start in Sweet Sinful Nights continue through Sinful Desire.  The story is well plotted and develops gradually as each couple unfolds.  The Sloans make for a sizzling, hot series and Ryan and Sophie did not disappoint.

And don’t miss the first title in the Sinful Nights Series,

Release Day and Review: Hard as Steel by Laura Kaye

Hard As Steel RDL - banner

We are absolutely thrilled to bring you the Release Day Launch for Laura Kaye’s HARD AS STEEL!! HARD AS STEEL is a Hard Ink/Raven Riders Series Crossover Novella brought to you by 1001 Dark Nights. Grab your copy today!!

 

Hard as Steel

Amazon eBook ** Amazon Paperback

Excerpt:

I’m thrilled to be here celebrating the release of my 21st book, HARD AS STEEL! After a midnight break-in at her apartment, close friends and Hard Ink Tattoo co-workers Ike Young and Jessica Jakes are forced into hiding—and forced to confront the feelings they’ve always denied for one another. I have always adored friends-to-lovers and forced proximity stories, and HARD AS STEEL delivers that and more, including a taste of both my award-winning and best-selling Hard Ink and upcoming Raven Riders series! Check out this excerpt:

They stared at each for a long moment. Jess went from feeling amused to awkward to observed…and that made her hot. Especially as she was standing there in nothing but a towel.

As if he could hear her thoughts, Ike’s gaze slowly ran down her neck to her chest. She wiped at something there and the wetness on the fingers told her it had been a droplet of water from her hair. Ike watched the movement of her hand openly, hungrily, and his desire made her bold, daring, hungry in return.

Without giving herself time to second guess the idea, she reached out and lightly dragged her wet fingers against his bottom lip.

And it was like she’d unleashed a beast.

Ike grabbed her wrist and hauled her to him. He was on her everywhere. His hands in her hair, on her back, grabbing her ass and lifting her up. His tongue licked the exact route that water droplet had taken, from chest to neck to ear. And then he was kissing her, fucking her mouth with his tongue, absolutely devouring her.

Jess held on like her life depended on it, and at some point she became aware of the breeze on her bare skin. She’d dropped the towel, which meant she was totally buck-ass naked in Ike’s big arms, and she couldn’t have cared less.

Ike licked her mouth, sucked her tongue, nipped at her lips. He turned and made for the stairs, and Jess thought she might die from sheer joy and anticipation. He tasted like strength and sin and sex, and she tightened her legs around his hips as he carried her to the loft, eager to see if all of him tasted so good—or even better.

When they reached the second floor, Ike growled low in his throat and his grip tightened on her on her ass, his fingers digging in. She moaned and—

Cool air from the ceiling fan washed over Jess as Ike dropped her onto the bed—and promptly turned around to leave. Jess was so stunned she couldn’t speak. Just as he hit the top of the steps, he said, “Don’t fucking tease me, Jessica. I’m trying to do right by you, but I’m still just a goddamned man.”

 

Hard As Steel - RDL Teaser 1

About HARD AS STEEL: A Hard Ink/Raven Riders Crossover Novella

After identifying her employer’s dangerous enemies, Jessica Jakes takes refuge at the compound of the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. Fellow Hard Ink tattooist and Raven leader Ike Young promises to keep Jess safe for as long as it takes, which would be perfect if his close, personal, round-the-clock protection didn’t make it so hard to hide just how much she wants him—and always has.

Ike Young loved and lost a woman in trouble once before. The last thing he needs is alone time with the sexiest and feistiest woman he’s ever known, one he’s purposely kept at a distance for years. Now, Ike’s not sure he can keep his hands or his heart to himself—or that he even wants to anymore. And that means he has to do whatever it takes to hold on to Jess forever.

Hard As Steel RDL Teaser 2

My Review

Hard as a Steel is a true gift for Hard Ink Fans.  I have been a die hard fan of this series since I picked up the first book and this book just made me smile.  I have patiently waited to hear Jess and Ike’s story and we got a hot, dirty and fun read in this book.  This is a 100 page crossover novella that gives us a bit of insight into Laura’s new series that deals with the Raven Riders MC.

Ike Young has been attracted to Jessica Jakes for the last four years and has tried his damnedest to stay away from her.  When Jess is threatened he realizes that the ghosts from his past can’t keep him away.  He needs to protect her and he wants to so he takes her into the mountains away from the chaos at Hard Ink.

Jessica is a perfect female MC.  She is sweet, sassy with a tough and fiery exterior but their is a whole layer of vulnerable that Ike sees.  She has a past that plagues her too.  These two have been good friends and co-workers for a long time with a chemistry simmering just under the surface for too long.  The time away, alone just the two of them, is just what they need to figure out if they can have a relationship.

For those of you who haven’t read the Hard Ink series, start there.  You will not regret it.  This book is a great middle ground between the old and the new.  I can’t wait for the Raven Riders’ series.  Laura Kaye never disappoints.  Her males are damaged alphas with a fierce need to protect and her ladies are the kind of woman, you want as friends….tough, stubborn and completely capable of taking care of themselves.  Thanks, Laura Kaye for this fantastic nugget!  You know how to suck us loyal fans in just a bit further!

Book Release and Review: Love Burns by Mandi Beck

LoveBurnsBanner

Synopsis

Love.

It’s my name. It’s what I fight for. It’s Frankie.

I’m a fighter. Trained to always keep my cover. To anticipate, see the next hit coming. I never expected her past to come at us swinging like it has.

I’m about to take on two of the most important fights of my life. My girl and the belt. I know that I can handle it. That I’ll never stop fighting. But, what do you do when your life, your love is threatened and you can’t take the hits – she has to? You shut your eyes and fucking pray like hell that she’s strong enough, fierce enough to come out on top.

I went to war for her. Now it’s her turn.

My Review

We begin Deacon and Frankie’s story in Love Hurts (which is Mandi Beck’s debut novel) and we pick up where we left off in Love Burns.  As Deacon and Frankie’s story continues, we find Deacon, the single minded fighter that he is and his princess are at a turning point in their relationship.  Deacon is fiercely protective of Frankie and will do almost anything to make her happy and more importantly to keep her safe.  Frankie is trying to keep her distance from Deacon because his love for her is sometimes too painful.  These two can’t seem to stop from hurting each other although they have the best intentions.

“No. Love shouldn’t be like this. It shouldn’t hurt so much, burn your soul. That’s not the kind of love I want”.

Deacon is fighting not only for his girl but for the belt.  It is a balancing act and Deacon is determined to win both.

Stick and Move, Stick and Motherfucking Move.

I adore the relationship between these two.  There chemistry leaps off the pages and makes you turn each page faster and faster.  These two have known each other their entire lives but amazingly they keep learning more and more about each other.  The depth of their love for each other is evident with their every move.

“I love you Princess. Always have. Always will. I’m not going anywhere, you feel me?”

I don’t want to give away the plot because the twist and turns are fantastic.  I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book.  Mandi has really outdone herself with this series.  For a new writer, she didn’t disappoint and made me look forward to her next project.

About WICKED REUNION:

College sweethearts London Uphill and Jared Kraft were inseparable. He was a rising baseball star with a promising future, and she seemed destined to become “Mrs. Kraft.” Then a tragic night and a series of devastating mistakes caused Jared to walk away from his life, leaving London without any explanation and tearing the couple apart.

Read a sneak peek:

My mouth drops open and I can’t do anything but stare. It’s like seeing a ghost—something you never in your life ever expected to see—and I just can’t look away. I resist the urge to reach down and pinch myself to make sure this moment is real.

Is this his idea of some twisted joke? I mean, there’s no way in hell that Jared Kraft is standing in my doorway with a dozen yellow roses after five years without a single word.

Shit like that only happens in movies, and my life for damn sure isn’t some glamorous fairy tale.

I stand there, staring like an idiot, while my brain tries to work out exactly what’s going on here. I furrow my brow. This has to be a fucking dream. No way this man has the nerve to just show up here like this—not after all this time.

I step back and take a long moment to study his face. He looks exactly the same as the last time I saw him, only his hair is longer—more shaggy and unkempt—the style I’ve seen him wear whenever I see pictures of him with his band, Wicked White. To prove to myself that this really is a dream, I reach down and bunch some skin up on my arm and then pinch with all my might.

“Ouch!” I yelp as I inspect the flesh my nails dug into.

My breath catches the moment I realize that the man who used to be my everything—the man who took off five years ago, leaving me and his family behind without so much as a good-bye or piss off—is standing on my porch.

When my eyes meet his, so many questions rage through my mind, but before I can open my mouth to ask a single one, anger begins to boil over inside me. How dare he just come waltzing into my life after all this time?

My body reacts of its own accord and my hand darts out to snatch the flowers out of his hand. His eyes grow wider when I slam them down onto my porch and then smack his face as hard as I can.

Lust and love fought for dominance in his expression when he tore himself away, and he slammed my door shut and ran around to his side. I didn’t hesitate to shift in my seat, my hand going to the flat, rigid planes of his abdomen as he shifted hard, tires squealing as he took to the street. I kissed at his neck and teased at his ear, fingers toying with the waistband of his jeans, while he groaned and tried to focus on the road.

“You tryin’ to kill me, Shea?”

I gasped when the car jerked and Sebastian made a sudden, sharp turn, and then another. He screeched to a stop on a deserted side street.

A fog of lust clouded my mind as I was yanked back onto his lap, my knees on either side of his legs, his needy cock grinding at the seam of my cut-off shorts as his mouth overtook mine.

Oh. God.

I moaned, fingers digging into his shoulders.

I arched up and pressed my breasts to his chest. They ached with just a glimmer of the need throbbing between my thighs.

Hot hands gripped the outside of my hips, forcing me back down on his dick that strained from his jeans.

I might have been on top, but he was definitely in control.

“Fuck, baby…what have you done to me…what have you done to me? Dying to be inside you. Have to feel you. Need you so bad.”

“You have me.”

In darkness, we find danger. In danger, I find Beau. Ash is a prison guard, she’s tough, she’s strong and she never backs away from a fight. She takes her job seriously, she takes her training seriously, and everything in her life goes as planned. Until the day he is brought into the prison. She’ll never forget meeting Beau ‘Krypt’ Dawson for the first time. He’s a member of the Jokers’ Wrath MC and it is said he killed an innocent family in the middle of a cafe, in cold blood. Deranged. Crazy. Psychotic. All those words describe the infamous Krypt, but Ash suspects there’s far more to the quiet man than meets the eye. Secrets are being hidden by the club, information is being kept under wraps. Krypt is silent for a reason. Ash is desperate to know that reason.

MELANCHOLY

“There’s never been a time I’ve cared about anything more than my club. Today that all changed. Today I got you.” Maddox is the President of the Jokers’ Wrath MC. He’s hard, he’s determined and he’s never had to give his heart over…until the day he found and saved Santana. Sassy and head-strong, she’s given him a run for his money for a solid five years. Their tension has built and both of them have danced around a passion that’s burning so deep in their souls, it’s all-consuming. They want each other – they’re just too stubborn to admit it. Heat, lust and sassy natures will have them fighting against what’s real. She’s feisty, he’s stubborn. But everything will change the moment she gets her first taste of the rugged, broody biker. There’s one problem with this story…Maddox has a secret. A secret he knows will crush Santana. It will take her life and spiral it out of control, sending them into a world of danger that will risk not only their lives, but everyone in the clubs, too. Will their love withstand the battle? Or will Maddox lose the only girl he’s loved, forever?

ANGUISH

There are a lot of things in this world that are easy to escape from. Having a son you didn’t ask for isn’t one of them. Mack is a nomad. He likes his own space and he struggles with emotion. His past is grey and his future looks about the same. That is until his ex-girlfriend dies and his son is handed over to him. A two month old baby he didn’t know existed. Until now. His world comes crashing down around him.

Desperate, he hires a nanny. Jaylah has gotten herself into some serious trouble, so when she sees the job opening for a nanny pop up, she jumps on it. Of course she’s not a nanny, but she figures she can pull it off. I mean, how hard can it be? She’s thrown into a world of diapers, hourly feedings and a whole lot of laundry. She’s also introduced to the most rugged, gorgeous man she’s ever had the pleasure of meeting. The best part, he’s the baby’s father. The worst part, he’s a biker. Their sexual tension is huge, but he’s a hard nut to crack. She’ll get in, though. She makes it her mission to break through the wall Mack has built so high around himself. Her world is about to spiral out of control, and she’s taking Mack along for the ride.

DESOLATION

Pippa.

The girl you all know as damaged. Quiet. Broken. She doesn’t fit in. Nothing in her world feels right. She’s trapped in a spiral of darkness that seems to be consuming her day by day, until she sees nothing but an empty, black hole. Her world is a broken place she can’t escape. She has people around her who matter. Who love her. But it’s not enough. Not enough to break her out of the bitter despair she lives in. Until Tyke.

He knows pain. He knows darkness. He’s sweet. He’s kind. But most of all…

He understands her. Combining their demons doesn’t seem like the best plan. Everyone is against them. He deserves better. She deserves better. They’ll never work. They’re too broken. Too damaged. It’s a destructive combination that will only end in heartbreak. He’s a biker. She’s a broken angel. But in their desolation, they will find peace. With each other.

Hate to Love You by Isabelle Richards is Live! Happy Release Day!

image002

 

Opposites in every way, Chase and Arianna have been bitter rivals since childhood.  Constantly in competition, they fight incessantly, making it nearly impossible for them to be in the same room with each other.  Until they slept together.

Sex changes everything.

In one emotional evening, they go from enemies to lovers. Hate quickly evolves into passionate lust, but old habits die hard. The love growing between them can’t erase a lifetime of animosity. The two quickly fall back into old routines of spite and vengeance, and their relationship crumbles under the weight of their deep-seated distrust.

Chase and Arianna spend the next two years on opposite sides of the globe, avoiding each other at all costs. Despite the lies they tell themselves, neither one is ready to let go. Even though they are both engaged to other people, they can’t find it in their hearts to forgive each other or to move forward.

A family emergency calls Arianna home, where they have no choice but to face each other again. Will they finally admit the truth, or will they remain forever trapped between love and hate?

 MY REVIEW

I was gifted with the chance to read this book early. Ari and Chase take the phrase Hate to Love You to a new level. These two have been rivals from childhood, pulling pranks on each other and constantly trying to one up each other. Over the years, the animosity has changed for both of them and then one night of sleeping together changes everything. You can’t go back after sex and these two date in secret for years. To say their relationship ends poorly is an understatement and until a family drama draws Ari back to her hometown, these two have gone years ignoring each other. Problem is…they still love each other in the worst way. Their banter and actions toward each other make you laugh out loud, sigh at other times and even get you to yell at the pages. These two are so frustrating, hardheaded and at times downright difficult. You actually question whether they are capable of finding a happily ever after or is just not fated for these two.

Isabelle Richards ropes you in without beautiful dialogue, characters that you would want to be friends with, and a storyline that is fast paced and races you around the world. Isabelle Richards is quickly becoming one of my go to new authors. It is easy to get caught up in Ari and Chase’s story. I, for one, didn’t put it down once I started. Yes, there is a cliffhanger but the second part comes out in October and since I have read Love to Hate You, I can tell you it is worth the wait! Pick this one up now and meet Chase and Ari!

Love to Hate You

Some connections are so powerful they will not be denied. Despite doing everything in their power to fight their feelings, Chase and Arianna decide to give their love a second chance. They hope that the long, painful journey back to each other will have taught them not to make the same mistakes again. This time they’ll get it right. All they need is a little time for the wounds to heal.
Unfortunately, life doesn’t stop just because love is in the air. Just as they begin to reconcile, their relationship is bombarded by crisis after crisis throwing their lives into a tailspin. Had they learned from their past, Chase and Arianna would find a way to lean on each other during trying times. But some people never learn.
Instead of revealing their strength, each challenge exposes their vulnerabilities. The cracks in their relationship turn into chasms as they let each other down time and time again. Hurt and betrayal overshadow the love, and they slip back into old habits. Hiding behind hatred for each other is much easier than facing the truth.
Will they find their way back to each other or will they stay trapped in the space between love and hate?
