sywm-amazonFrom New York Times Bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a new friends to lovers standalone romance.

There’s no way I’ll fall for Wyatt Hennington.

He can keep his Southern drawl, irresistible smile, and those pick up lines all to himself. It’s bad enough that I made the mistake of sleeping with him once. It will never happen again. I don’t want nor need some cowboy complicating my life.

But I don’t always get what I want.

Whether I like it or not, our lives are intertwined. Trying to keep him out of my heart is futile. He’ll find every loophole and embed himself there.

The problem is—I don’t know if he even loves me. And when the ground crumbles beneath us and our world shatters, I’ll finally know if he truly wants me or if we are only fooling ourselves . . .

Playboy Pilot

I’m so in love with Carter! His playboy image aside he is the perfect man. He’s smart and he’s funny and I fell in love with him right away. This was an amazing book; I’m still dealing with a book hangover 3 days later. In my imagination Carter is real and he’s my man not Kendall’s. This book was full of humor, romance and it ripped you apart but in true Penelope and Vi fashion you are put back together. These authors have become some of my favorite. Playboy Pilot is the perfect book to dive into if you’re dealing with a book hangover, but be prepared to be in a book hangover once you’re finished. I highly recommend knowing what book you’re going to read next so you’re not like me right now trying to figure out what to read next.

Kendall has a big decision to make in the next few weeks and she’s looking to escape life for a little while so she can think and make the decision that will impact the rest of her life. Sitting at the airport lounge deciding where to go she meets Carter. Carter, who is immediately attracted to Kendall, helps her decide where to go on her trip, but unknowing to Kendall, Carter is the pilot of the flight and Carter has no idea if Kendall gets on his flight. Their journey begins in Rio and after falling for her after a few short days together he asks her to come along with him on his next flight.

Pick up your copy of Playboy Pilot today and find out if Kendall and Carter have their happily ever after, and find out what it is both of them are running from. Order links are below.

Blurb

From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Money or love? Which would you choose? 

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it’s an easy decision.

For me, it’s not. Did I mention it’s a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Then, he left.

I thought I’d never see him again.

But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter’s reputation were never far behind.

I didn’t know what to believe.

But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.

At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Night Shift 2

Night Shift is a collaboration of excerpts or bonus material from ten authors.All proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to Keith Milano Fund for the American Foundation for Suicide prevention.

Pucks, Sticks, and Diapers by Toni Aleo was a cute mini novel about an NHL hockey couple. Reading the mini book I felt like I was missing part of they story so I’m currently investigating if there is a book or series that I missed. Toni’s writing has peaked my interest and I’m going to add her to my list of authors to look into more books to read.

I love hockey and will read just about any sports romance novel out there, hot athletes, yes please! Max: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel by Sawyer Bennett peaked my interest. From reading the first and only chapter available, I immediately needed to add the book to my to-read list on goodreads, which is there where I found it’s a 6th book from the series Cold Fury Hockey. I have 5 books to have read before this one releases December 13th, my preorder is already in on amazon!

There’s 2 additional epilogues from Lauren Blakely, I skipped over them as I haven’t read the books they are from yet so I will have to remember to come back to it once I’ve read them.

The main reason I purchased Night Shift was to read the first 3 chapters of K. Bromberg’s Sweet Cheeks. I absolutely LOVED her Driven series and additional books she wrote based off characters found in the main series. No matter how many books I’ve read and loved since reading this series, my thoughts often drift back to Colton and Riley. Sweet Cheek’s is not a driven book, it’s a new book with new characters and I had to see if it was Kristy’s amazing writing that I fell in love with or was it really hoping for glimpses of Colton I was looking for. The verdict is in, it’s Kristy’s writing. Only 3 chapters in and I love the main female character, Saylor. She’s the owner and main baker at Sweet Cheeks bakery. 6 months prior she ended her engagement to her fiance, whom she’d been with for 5 years, just 2 weeks before the wedding. She’s been invited to his wedding of his rebound girl. In the heat of the moment she RSVP’s yes to his upcoming wedding. Her brother, who sounds hot as hell, suggests that she does actually go to the wedding with a date and show all the friends who took her ex’s side after the breakup that she’s happy and in love in an effort to help her failing business. Only problem is Saylor is not happily in love. That’s where Hayes comes in. The third chapter introduces us to Hayes and who is he is – mega movie star! He’s working on the set of a movie being directed by the Andy Weston. The book is set to release November 14, 2016 and I just might have to take a vacation day to stay home and read it on release day!

Well Hung – Lauren Blakeley

If you read Mister O and Big Rock and loved them then you will enjoy Well Hung by Lauren Blakeley. It’s the third book in the Men of Rom Com series told in the male point of view. The book can be read as a standalone. This story is about Wyatt, Nick Hammer’s brother (from Mister O) and Natalie, who is Charlotte’s sister from Big Rock. Natalie is off limits to Nick because she is his assistant at his construction business but he’s been attracted to her since he met her. They end up in Vegas on business together and decide on 1 night of breaking the rules and things can go back to normal once the sun goes up. They do some crazy things while in Vegas, one of which is getting hitched! Can things really go back to normal when the sun comes up the next day and they return to New York?

This book was hilarious. The stories keep getting better. These men are so cocky; you can’t help but laugh at them. Lauren puts some new twists on things in this book that I’ve never seen before that keeps you coming back for more. I love how Wyatt and Natalie are perfect for each other, they have the same sense of adventure, in and outside of the bedroom, they are the quirky couple and you are rooting for them to be together the entire time. There’s a big surprise ending that you don’t see coming. I’ve read enough romance novels to have a good sense of where the author is going but with this book I was surprised the entire time. It was a great read and I’m excited for The sexy one and Full package which is a story that features Nick and Wyatt’s little sister Josie so you know it’s going to be a good one. The poor sucker who falls for her, I can’t wait!

Down Shift Excerpt Reveal

down-shift-coming-soon

 

Excerpt

I force myself to look away because . . . well, because he’s a stranger. In my house. Naked. And oh my God, something is wrong with me, because I’m not running and calling 911 like I should.

When his chuckle subsides, he brings his head back down, so I can see the tears in his eyes from laughter. “That thing is my cock, and since this is my bathroom and you seem to be attempting to seduce me in my house, I don’t think you have any right to tell me what to do.” And with that, he leans a hip against the counter and folds his arms across his chest, eyes locked on mine and one eyebrow lifted. Everything else is left hanging out there in the wind.

“Your house? Seduce you?” At that point I realize I’m sputtering and shaking my head. “This is my house. You’re in my house.”

Confusion drifts across his face and his jaw falls lax. “Hold up.” He lifts his hands in the hold on a minute position, drawing my eyes back to where they don’t want to be. If this whole situation weren’t so unbelievable, it would be comical, and yet as true as that is, I don’t seem to be laughing at all. “I think there seems to be some misunderstanding.”

“No shit.” Sarcasm is my fallback and it doesn’t disappoint me now. A lot of good it does me, though, as I’m still doing the naked dance while trying to react to this surreal situation.

The look of disdain he gives me at my comment earns him no points in my book. “While I’m digging the socks with your outfit,” he says with a smirk, eyes veering down and then back up to my strategically placed hands, “you should cover up.” I catch the towel he tosses me and immediately wrap it around myself. I’m certain my mismatching knee-high socks make a statement about me, but I’m beyond caring, because I’m still alone in my house with a strange man and have no answers as to how this has happened.

With one hand clutching onto the towel at my collarbone, I use the other to motion to him. “You too.”

A lightning flash of a grin glances across his lips. “Sorry, but you just took the only towel left.”

Behind the wheel, racing champion Zander Donavan is at the top of his game. But after too much excess in his personal life, he’s forced to step away. He needs to accomplish something all on his own—outside of his famous father, Colton Donavan’s, shadow.

Getty Caster is running away from the abuse that clouds her past. She thinks she’s found the perfect escape—until she discovers a stranger in the beachside cottage she’d been promised. He’s undeniably sexy, but she’s there to heal. Alone.

Before long though, fighting with each other turns into fighting their attraction. And giving into desire sets off a chain reaction that has their pasts colliding. With an unexpected love on the line, can they overcome the fallout to build a future?

About the Author:

kristy-bromberg

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

 

She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.

 

On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift (Releasing 10/4/16)), and a short story titled UnRaveled. She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out at the end of 2016.

 

Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (The Player (#1) and The Catch (#2)) and the Everyday Heroes series (Cuffed (#1), Combust (#2), and Cockpit (#3). She’s also writing a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series that will be out in February 2017.
She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.

Find Me

Find me by Laurelin Page

Find me is book 2 in The Found Duet. Another 5 star read! JC and Gwen’s story is continued in this book. If you read book #1 you know that JC goes into protective custody because he’s an eye witness in the murder. He tells Gwen he will always love her and he will come looking for her once the trial is over and he’s safe again. Makes her promise to move on with her life and not wait for him. Gwen agree’s to put him at ease but she knows her heart belongs to JC and she will never move on. Book 2 starts almost a year later, with no word from JC. Gwen is starting to lose hope that JC will ever return and her friend Lyanie suggests that she set a date to move on – if she doesn’t hear from JC by the set date she will start to move on. A few days later at their weekly Thursday night dinner, Gwen see’s a news report about a murder trial and the key witness, who’s been in protective custody until the trial is JC! With JC back in New York, Gwen begins to hope there is a future for them after all.

This book is better than the first one. We get to read about Gwen and JC’s romance building. They move in together, plan a wedding and there is a whole lot of suspense with unexpected news. Laurelin makes every chapter a mini cliffhanger causing you to want to keep reading. Many times I could tell what was going to happen next, likely due to the amount of reading I’ve done, but I was still shocked when my thoughts were correct. I’m disappointed Gwen and JC’s story is over but I love how their story ended.

I’m happy to have discovered a new author in Laurelin and I look forward to reading more of her work. There was a sample of Chandler’s story at the end of this book and it’s defiantly a book that i’m going to add to my to read list on Goodreads.

Free Me

Free Me by Laurelin Page

5 star read

Gwen is a rule follower. She doesn’t break the rules and makes sure others around her follow the rules. JC is a rule breaker. They met one night at the club Gwen works at after Gwen stormed into a VIP room because the occupants of the room were breaking the rules of the club by gambling, smoking cigars and having women stripping the room. They immediately had this electric charge between them just from talking. One day, in an effort to feel pain and numbness after her brother tried to kill himself, Gwen initiated sex with JC, the best sex she’s ever had. Later, JC proposes an arrangement with Gwen, a standing sex date every Wednesday at his hotel room. They agreed it would be strictly about sex, they would not know anything about each other except their names. There was never going to be anything more than just sex between them. Can Gwen and JC continue with just sex or will someone inevitably fall for the other person?

Loved this book! It was truly an amazing read. I had a hard time putting it down. My interest was kept right from the start. The book ended with a cliffhanger that leaves you wanting more! Thankfully I didn’t have to wait to read the next book. Gwen and JC are both running from their past. We find out about Gwen’s past and why she’s the way she is, not willing to let anyone in. She had no friends, the only people in her life were her sister and brother. She now had Wednesday’s to look forward to. I highly recommend this book if your looking for a good read with some amazing sex scenes. I’ve started Find me, the next book in the series and so far I’m hooked!

About Confessed:

A brand new dirty, sexy, funny standalone romance…

Lucy Burchett is the heiress to a notoriously disastrous family, and she’s left home for good. But when she runs a big, black pickup off the road, totaling it, she finds herself stuck in the middle of nowhere with the driver. He’s got a body to die for and a hair-trigger temper. Vince Russo looks like a felon, but he’s also pretty funny. He’s on the lam from the cops… and a psychopathic, Russian mob boss who wants to put his balls on a barbeque. Literally.

After a night of ill-advised cocktails and bathroom-wrecking sex, Vince just can’t get Lucy off his mind. But he’s got plans to rob her. And Lucy’s life is about to get a little bit criminal too.

But can a bad boy and a good girl really escape from their troubles together? Can they trust each other at all?

In the steady march of disasters that follow them west, they fight and they laugh. They tease and they’re tender. They’re either oil and water, or chocolate and peanut butter.

 

Except, they can’t run from the real world forever. And there’s a hell of a surprise in store for both of them…

Exclusive Excerpt:

I’m in a ditch with the front end of my truck wrapped around a pine tree when I see her in my rearview mirror. Construction lights on the highway light her up from behind, like some rock star. The curve of her calves is perfect, pretty little ankles and strappy sandals. I’m such a goddamned sucker for sandals.

Her dress is made of something thin. The wind kicks up, lifting her skirt and showing me her bare thighs. She tries to catch it with her hand, but she can’t stop the breeze, and she gives me the full Marilyn Monroe.

This is not what I need right now.

I force the door open with my shoulder and slide out. My neck hurts like a motherfucker, and the engine is pouring smoke. This was not the plan. I head up the dirt embankment. I can’t take my eyes off of her. The construction lights do me a favor and magnify the line of her breasts on the ground in shadow. I rub my stubble and then crack my neck.

Marilyn. She had nothing on this one. Christ.

The dress, it’s this peach color. Those shoulders are smooth and soft. That sexy blonde hair comes down in waves just past her nipples.

She’s driving a white 2016 BMW X5. Top-of-the-line engine, pain-in-the-ass security system. You can’t steal that one unless you’ve got the key. Believe me. I know.

I was driving a perfectly good Dodge 3500 Cummins turbo diesel Hemi V8. I hotwired it not an hour ago from the back lot of a Walmart fifty miles away, outside Knoxville. I was doing just fine until she came along.

Not what I need. At fucking all.

I walk up the embankment. The front end of the pickup is fucked, and the thing has started honking all by itself. The BMW, on the other hand, is just a little banged up on the bumper. Unbelievable. German engineering and further proof of the point that life’s a total bitch. That’s why you’ve got to steal what you want.

Now I’m close to her. About ten feet away.

A little bow accentuates her waist. One of her straps is a little bit twisted. Pouty lips. Are those freckles?

Motherfuck it.

“You stopped too fast!” she says, marching right up to me like I don’t outweigh her by a hundred and seventy pounds and I don’t tower over her by at least a foot. Totally fucking fearless. “Haven’t you ever heard of pulsing your brake lights?” She points at me. “Sir?”

Sexy and angry?

For. Fuck’s. Sake.
