Rounding Third

synopsis

I was destined for stardom.
From the age of seven, I was an all-star.
Parents praised me, coaches worshipped me.
As I got older, girls begged for me.
I was Beltline’s baseball God, guaranteed to put this small town on the map.

Then, after one night, that future vanished.

The legend was laid to rest.
I gave up my scholarship.
I fled from Beltline.
I left the girl behind.

Now, I’m back.

angies review

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Who loves a GOOD 2nd chance romance??  MEEEE!!  That is who!! I gotta say this is the first baseball romance book that I have read (or can remember) and I loved it.  As much as I love rockers and motorcycle hotties, I was loving this new hero story….well new for me anyway.

This is the story of high school love that is torn apart by an accident……by a simple tragedy.  Our town hero baseball stud gets the blame and is essentially chased outta town.  He doesn’t want to hurt the love of his life so he lets her go as well as run from the pain of the situation.

When the story begins to unfold we see our baseball hottie Crosby getting a 2nd chance at life in general.  He is going to be playing baseball for another college.  This college he will reunite with his best friend Brax and his love El.  He needs her and it’s taken him 2 years to figure it crap out!!  El is stunned when Cros reenters her life…she has moved on….or tried to move on and is not sure if her heart can handle his return.

The couple have so much to deal with from outside forces trying to break them apart because he is a “super star athlete” to their home town hating him to her family saying apart they will lead better lives but El and Crosby can’t let go.  They are the air the other needs.

As the story unfolds we get more and more details of the “night” that changed their lives.  When the final showdown happens I GASPED at what El tells our “villain” but was happy to see her taking a stand for the man she loves and the man she can’t be without.

The series, I am super stoked for!!  I can’t wait for Brax book.  I kinda wiggled my eyes at him and am like “hey Michelle I need more dets on this guy” and especially about who he was comforting after a bad night!!!????

Melinda's Review

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

Wow…Never realized how hot ball players could be. This is the first baseball story I hve read and mam I think I’m going to LOVE this series. I could not get enough of Crosby Lynch then there was Braxton, Oliver, and Tyler.

Crosby was a great ball player had a scholarship and was a town favorite but one night with friends after the big game changed everything. He lost friends, the town turned on him. He left his scholarship behind, left his town, left the love of his life and tried to move on from tragedy and give those around him a better life. Until now he is face to face with his past. Ella Keaton and Braxton Brentwood, they know his life story can he face the love of his life and best friend again after all he did?

Ella Keaton had the perfect life a boyfriend that would give her the world and a best friend. Kedsey. One night changed everything she lost a best friend and her boyfriend. Now her past is smack dab in front of her. Crosby and Ella have a strong bond and fight for a second change but have so much going against them, family, a town, a painful past. Question is will Cros and El get their forever or will their past be too much and break their hearts once more.

I so enjoyed the second change love story. The bond that Ella and Crosby have is amazing even after being apart all the time. Watching the interaction between the guys was awesome, their bets were great and Ella was a good sport too. Cros and El back story had me in tears what they went through and had to overcome. The town that was out for blood mainly Crosby’s and to see Ella stand up for what she wanted for her friends was amazing. I really wanted more of Crosby and Ella but I’m so excited for Braxton’s story and all of the guys if I’m honest.

about the author

Michelle Lynn has always been a reader, but her passion has become a full-blown addiction since her husband bought her a Kindle for Mother’s Day. She’s pretty sure that he regrets this on a regular basis. Especially when she has it propped up next to the stove while she cooks, which often results in a burnt dinner. Or when he loses sleep because the glow from the screen wakes him up when he rolls over at three in the morning. He does agree, however, that she uses this gift more than any other he has ever gotten her. She joking counters that, because of some of the steamy novels she reads, he also benefits more from this gift than any other he has gotten her. 😉

Michelle moved around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and two kids. She developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to write. With the encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her family and friends. But after chasing around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to bed.

excerpt

The Prince of Punk Rock (Book 1):
Jessi let the warm water from the shower spray onto her face. She was happy. Tommy was happy. Angel was happy. Their much needed talk at the breakfast table set some ground rules. Angel was open to communication and encouraged it. It gave Jessi comfort. After she showered, she meandered back to the bedroom, as she towel dried her hair. Tommy and Angel were already naked and in each other’s arms on top of the unmade bed.

“What took you so long?” Tommy asked, before returning his lips to Angel’s neck.
Jessi didn’t answer. She wanted to watch. She leaned against the doorway and folded her arms. She watched Tommy kiss Angel with an urgency that she never saw before, and the love that Angel had for Tommy was never clearer than it was right now. She knew they were in love. It didn’t scare her as much as she thought it would. The confidence she had in their marriage overshadowed her fears and doubts.

Her thoughts were pushed aside by the sound of Tommy moaning and breathing heavily. Angel was stroking Tommy and sucking on his nipples.

excerpt

He opened the door, swinging it wide, then stepping aside to allow me to enter before him. I walked into the penthouse suit.

“Can I get you another drink?” he asked.

I nodded; my mouth was too dry to form words.

I watched him stride to a cabinet. I heard the tinkle as ice was placed in glasses and then the splash of liquid. He returned with two crystal cut glasses and handed me one.

“More whiskey,” he said. His voice was low, husky.

I took a sip, welcoming the burn as the liquid hit my lips, my tongue, and gently slid down my throat. I cursed the ice as its noise gave away how much my hand was shaking. He took a step closer, then another. He reached up and trailed a finger down my cheek, then over my throat.

“You have for as long as it takes you to drink that whiskey. After that, if you are still here, there’s no turning back,” he said.

I raised the glass to my lips once more and downed it in one. My eyes watered. I glanced to the side of me, reached out, and placed the empty glass on a coffee table. I then stood tall and stared back at him. His lips, slowly, formed a smile, a very wicked smile.

“I don’t know your name,” I said quietly.

“Neither do you need to. Think of this as just one night with a stranger, one night to fulfil your fantasy.”

I didn’t think sex with a stranger had featured high up on my list of fantasies, but the heat coursing through my body and the throbbing between my legs told me otherwise.

#Review – Fool Me Once, A Codie Snow Novel by Jade C. Jamison

Fool Me Once (Codie Snow #1)

synopsis

Something’s gotta give…but Codie Snow doesn’t know if it needs to be her non-committal workaholic ex-boyfriend attorney Slade Sheppard or her unsatisfying job as a nursing assistant. Because even though the chemistry with Slade is off-the-charts hot and the job is a necessary evil, she doesn’t know that she wants either.

Enter Pete Olsen, bad ass cop in charge of serving and protecting the town of Dalton, Colorado. Codie goes on a ride-along with Pete and sees the seedy underbelly of her town, witnessing the gamut–from an amusing domestic dispute to a frightening meth lab explosion–and she decides that law enforcement is not for her.

But Pete just might be.

When Codie learns that a supposed suicide Pete investigated on the ride-along is actually a murder, she poses as a religious fanatic in order to gain access to the controlling cult where the dead woman was discovered, hoping to find the truth. But has she instead set herself up to be murdered–and will she uncover the killer before she becomes the next victim?

Melinda's Review

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

Fool Me Once is a quick read but man is it a great build up and packed full of suspense. I am loving these characters ok some more than others but still love them in a way.

Codi is trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. She is a nurse but wants something different. She decides to go on a ride along with Pete a police officer but realizes really quickly she does not follow the orders or like the idea of sitting in the car so she puts herself in dangerous situations when on these ride-a-longs. She has an ex Slade that she decides she no longer wants either but Pete could be another story.

I was flipping the pages to find out what was going to happen with Codi between the situations she was getting into with her ride-a-longs and “investigations”, what was going on between her and Pete, between her and Slade, and then there were the interactions with her BFF and roomie Matthew. There was so much going on in this book. This book also sets up the next one and yes it is a cliffy. WOW I cannot wait for the next book I need to know what is going to happen and will it be Pete or Slade.

 

about the author

Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade’s day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn’t stop her from doing a little writing herself.

Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.

You’ll have to discover Jade’s writing for yourself to decide if you like it.

Essential Beginnings (Surviving Ashes, #1)

synopsis

Change is coming…

Maverick Beckett took his much needed annual vacation up to Washington State to relax with his old friends from his years in the Corps. He also had every intention of extinguishing the fires that arose between him and a certain local woman he couldn’t get out of his mind until the unthinkable happened.

Nothing is as it seems…

Henley Varano loved the simple anonymous life that her remote hometown provided. She’d had the wealthy existence of a fashion model and the fame that came with it only to find it lonelier than she could have ever imagined. Unfortunately, men only saw the fictitious person she appeared to be in the magazines and not the real woman she was—even the one man she’s wanted for years.

Surviving is just the beginning…

An apocalyptic event changes the course of their lives when the massive Yellowstone Caldera erupts. Panic ensues among the small town, causing Mav and Henley to witness the best and worst of humanity. They must work as a team to create a new existence before the fallout of harsh and fiery elements overtakes their safe haven. Along the way, they might just find that they need each other more than ever.

Series Description: The world as they know it is about to change. The Yellowstone Caldera has erupted in an apocalyptic fashion, triggering simultaneous events around the world. The one thing that will either bring society together or rip their lives apart is the need for survival as a group. A company of former Marines will do whatever it takes to reach an area in the far recesses of northeastern Washington State, a region they feel is uniquely equipped for endurance and existence in what is left of the crumbling infrastructure of the United States. Follow along as Kennedy Layne conveys each of their stories as these brave men and women face the harsh, fiery elements of an inevitable apocalypse while encountering passion, intrigue, and suspense…

angies review

 

I received a copy of the book from the author.

I love dystopian and End of the World type of books.  It doesn’t matter if its Zombies, Aliens, a Virus or in this case giant volcano that could really cause this kind of cataclysmic disaster.…..I am in!!  Yes please!!

Mav is hanging out at the fishing lodge with his Father type bestie, Tank.  Tank is a prepper to the max.  He loves has old military guys and loves to plan a visit every year.  This year everything changed.  When Mav is getting ready to leave, Tank tells him that his spidey senses are going off and to stay.

Henley is a famous fashion model who has run home to the small town because of the fame getting to her.  Today she is happy running the lodge with Tank and hiding from Mav when he returns to visit.  Mav and Henley have this crazy chemistry and they are drawn to each other but a past misunderstanding has put Henley on the defensive of Mav.  Good think Tank is there to kick her butt in to gear plus when the world is gonna end, you kind get over stuff quickly!!  LOL

I am going to say this book is slow…now not bad slow or kill me now slow but it’s gotta  lot of back story you need plus a cast of characters to get introduced too along with the Yellowstone super volcano erupting…so you see why I say slow???  You need all of this information to get to know the heart of the characters and who to root for or who to growl at when they appear on the pages!!  Tank is an awesome guy and he has a giant heart to help out his military family, Lodge family and the entire small town near the lodge…….I loved the love story and the, what I considered, actual could happen facts of the story.  But what I loved the most about the story is the theme of family throughout the book.  I can’t wait to read the rest of the books because I want to get to know Mav’s other military hotties.

kellys review

What a twist of fate! The author has taken vampires and werewolves and put a new spin on them. This is not your ordinary paranormal story we are all used to. The Cynn Cruors are a species that was made using the best attributes of vampires and werewolves. Finn is one of the Cynn and has lost his parents at a young age. He is working with others to try and stop this war with the Scatha Cruors. Many years pass by and he is on the hunt for the Scatha in the middle of the night. The Scatha have their sights set on Eirene who is walking through the park by herself in the middle of the night. Finn jumps in and saves her life. And here go the fireworks! They are pulled to each other with an intense connection. One that neither of them can deny. What they don’t know is they both have a connection with the Scatha that tried to kill her. With her extraordinary computer skills and Finn’s Vampire/Werewolf blood they go on the hunt.

 

The streetlights cast shadows everywhere, but Eirene wasn’t afraid. There was something about the dark which beckoned to her and soothed her soul. It didn’t frighten her. It was as if the night knew she felt at home in it and welcomed her without question.

 

The author has this story jam packed with action and plenty of hot scenes to keep you wanting more. Ms. Cate does a great job of giving you a backdrop that you can picture perfectly in your head as well as making sure the characters all work together. You will feel like you are right in the middle of the story. This is the first book by Ms. Cate that I have read and it will not be the last.

 

about the author

Isobelle Cate is a woman who wears different masks. Mother-writer, wife-professional, scholar-novelist. Currently living in Manchester, she has been drawn to the little known, the secret stories, about the people and the nations: the English, the Irish, the Scots, the Welsh, and those who are now part of these nations whatever their origins. Her vision and passion are fuelled by her interest and background in history and paradoxically, shaped by growing up in a clan steeped in lore, loyalty, and legend.

 

Isobelle is intrigued by forces that simmer beneath the surface of these cultures, the hidden passions, unsaid desires, and yearnings unfulfilled.

#Review – 27 Truths by MJ Fields

27 Truths: Ava's Story (The Truth About Love, #1)

synopsis

From USA Today Bestselling author, MJ Fields, comes a gripping story of love and it’s many truths.

Ava Links was raised seeing the different sides of love.
The beautiful and the broken.
Through it all, she knows the journey she is taking will lead her to the man she is destined to be with. The man she has always loved, Luke Lane.

But as we know, there are no guarantees in this world, no promises that can not be broken, and no way you will know what tomorrow brings.

**** A note for the readers****

At present time, this story is slated as a duet. In the writing process things change. This story has been begging to be told for two years.
Although not necessary, The Love series, The Wrapped series, and The Burning Souls series can be read before The Truth About Love.

This is not Steel or Caldwell, but at the core is a strong family just the same. It does not promise an HEA or laughs. This is heart, heat, and will evoke feelings that are not always pleasant.

To the lovers of my first works. You have been patient. You have been… persistent. The wait is almost over.
After you read this, please remember you asked for it.
Love you anyways.

angies review

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

SOO I didn’t read the other books that these characters are from. I THINK that a maybe part of why I wasn’t a giant fan like others were…..I wasn’t totally invested in the characters like fans of the other books were.

Ava has been through a lot.  She loves Luke like crazy.  She has had her heart crushed by him and his Friends with Benefits desire.  When Ava finally decides to tell Luke her feelings….WOW is he a super DB and destroys her heart.  The stuff he says…Man he needed to have appendage attached to his short and curlies chopped off!!  But even after him destroying her, Ava is a glutton and goes back for more pain and heartache.  Was I teary, yes.  I mean if you aren’t you have to be a cold and heartless person.

But then right when you are lost and sad about Ava/Luke is when THOMAS comes in and saves the day.  He has loved Ava from afar and right when she is at her worst is when he comes to her and the things he says….sigh……

I am ready for the nest story in the duet to see what happens !!

about the author

USA Today Bestselling author MJ FIELDS grew up on a farm surrounded by her extended family. She attributes her ability to write a realistic male character to the fact that she had a large amount of male influences in her life… that and the dirty joke books she would steal from her uncles or the farms hired help and run away laughing while they chased her yelling obscenities trying to get her to return the books before her God fearing mother found out and spanked her butt with a flyswatter.

No she wasn’t physically abused, she very openly admits that she deserved every imprint left on her ass from the flyswatter. (Could this be why she loves tattoos? Maybe.) After each spanking she would run away, usually through the fields and down to the falls where she would laugh because it really didn’t hurt, while she read the book she had stolen and stashed when no one was looking.

When she wasn’t misbehaving she was working side by side with her male family members learning what hard work, loyalty, and dedication was all about, spending time with her grandmothers who taught her all about love and blind faith, or dancing and singing in the kitchen with her four siblings while her mother gave them all a childhood filled with love and encouragement to use their imagination and follow their dreams.

Her love of writing was in full swing by age eight. Together with her cousins, she wrote a ‘newspaper’ that they sold for ten cents to family members.
Her school years were spent hanging in the principal’s office or a shit list somewhere. Weekends she could be found spending time with her family or hanging out with more males than females, in the fields with tailgates down and a bonfire burning while music played loudly in the background. Some of those times ‘allegedly’ had alcohol involvement, she will neither confirm nor deny.

As an adult she self-published her first New Adult romance in January 2013. Today she has completed six self-published series. The Love series, The Wrapped series, The Burning Souls series, The Norfolk series, The Men of Steel series, and The Ties of Steel series. She also just released a book she wrote with five, yes five, other authors. It is her darkest book to date. The Original Sin is available now.

MJ has been told by several readers that they had never read a book that involved a Prince Albert piercing and although she cannot claim the title, it is said she may possibly be “The Pioneer of the Pierced Penis”, in the New Adult book world, of course. (Naughty naughty.)

MJ is a hybrid author who loves her readers and tries her best to write as much as she can for them. She believes she has the best reader’s crew in the entire world (many of us agree. Forever Steel baby). She publishes an Indie book almost every month. She is also signed with a traditional publisher, Loveswept, Penguin Random House, for her co-written series The Caldwell Brothers with Chelsea Camaron. Hendrix and Morrison, are available now. The third in the series, will be released on April 12 , 2016.

Her next Indie series is Rockers of Steel. Book one, Memphis Black and book two Finn Beckett are now available. River James is coming January 3oth, 2016. Each can be read as a stand-alone, but really who doesn’t want MORE STEEL!

There is always something new in the works and she has stories to write for her readers for years to come. Her alpha male characters are some of the best in the industry, but remember before they fall many of them can be considered crude, rude, pierced, and tattooed. (Just the way we like them!)

If you are offended by the ‘F’ word she advises you either take a pass on her books or pull up your big girl thong, sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy the ride. If you can’t handle the heat you should stay out of the … well the Steel and Sin book worlds anyways. If heat is all you’re looking for she insists you be warned the heat will draw you in, but the heart, depth, and emotion in the books will keep you

 

#promo #Excerpt – Texas Maverick by Sable Hunter and Ryan O’Leary

Texas Maverick (Texas Heroes)

synopsis

Maverick Cross is a Texas hero, not the flashy kind, he’s a war veteran who served his country overseas and now serves it at home as an Austin firefighter. To look at him, and women love to look, he’s a ripped athlete who takes care of himself and has it all together.
Only his next door neighbor knows the truth; Maverick suffers from PTSD.
Everly Winterfell is almost invisible, blending into the crowd is fine by her. She’s a hero too, not the kind who wears a cape, but the kind who isn’t afraid to dig for the truth and expose it for all to see. Everly’s alter ego is Eve Winters, an award winning journalist who doesn’t seek the limelight, she’s content with writing stories that change people’s lives without drawing any attention to herself.
Nothing much escapes Everly, she has a talent for seeing beneath the surface, reading people for who they really are. From her vantage point in Apartment #701, she has learned that the occupant in #702 is lonely. He has a habit of pushing people away before they can get too close, especially women. Maverick can offer a woman great sex, Everly can vouch for that fact. The walls are thin between #701 and #702 and many nights she has lain there wishing she was on the receiving end of his attention. He’s intrigued by his odd little neighbor, who seems to want to be his wingman and he has no idea that her ulterior motive is to be his friend. After some negotiations, they strike a deal – she’ll find him women who know the score, who won’t expect more than he can give, and in return he’ll see if he can advise her on how to attract a man for herself. To facilitate their odd arrangement, they install a chalkboard on the narrow wall separating their front doors, leaving messages about their shared adventures.
The more time they spend together, the less important finding dates for the other becomes. Everly and Maverick discover they share a chemistry that’s off the charts, they can’t keep their hands off one another. There’s only one problem – Maverick has no idea Everly is his secret obsession, Eve Winters. Sometimes what we need is right in front of our face. Sometimes what we’re looking for is right next door…

excerpt

“Maverick, it’s me. Everly.” He opened his eyes expecting to see flashes of gunfire and explosions from IED’s. Instead, he looked into delicate features, eyes warm with concern. “Everly?” “You were dreaming,” she whispered. Fuck, he was dreaming now. “What are you doing here?” She kept her hand on Maverick, seeking to soothe him. “I heard you through the wall.” Standing up, she stood next to the bed. “Do you want some water before I go?” “Did I hurt you?” He grabbed her hand, pulling her back down to sit on the bed. She twined her fingers with his. “No, of course not.” “Don’t go.” His hand came up to weave itself in her hair. “Where’s the whale spout, Tink?” “What are you doing?” she whispered as his other hand skimmed up under her shirt, caressing the soft skin of her back. “I need you,” he pulled her head down until their lips met. Now Everly thought she was the one who must be dreaming. Could this be real? His mouth moved on hers, a gentle graze that made it hard to breathe. She wanted to kiss him back so badly she could die. “Open.” His demand made every nerve ending in her body spark to life. There was no way on God’s green earth she could resist this man, she wanted him too much. Tentatively, she responded to his strength, his passion. Parting her lips, she touched the tip of her tongue to his and he groaned, pulling her to the bed beside him. Everly’s blood raced through her veins. She craved him – she craved his touch and she craved to touch him. Clutching his shoulders, she began to kiss him back with desperate intensity. Her surrender seemed to free something within him. Maverick began to devour her lips and she trembled as his big hands roamed all over her body. Never had she been kissed this way. His mouth on hers was the single most wonderful thing that had ever happened to her. A haze of desire clouded Maverick’s brain. Her body was soft and warm as his mouth blazed a trail across her face and down her throat. When his lips brushed the pulse point that betrayed her excitement, he knew he wanted more. Feeling the evidence of her surrender beating against his lips sent a hot rush of hunger to his cock. “You feel so good, baby.” Returning his mouth to hers, he kissed her as his hand found her breast underneath her shirt. Cupping the small mound, he pulled and tweaked the nipple until she shivered in his arms. When he removed his hand, she whimpered her disappointment until his teasing touch edged up her thigh. “Maverick?” “Shhhh, this dream is so much better than the one I just left.” Waking up wasn’t an option. He wanted this, he needed this. The fire between them was so unexpected he was shaking from it. His fingers were hovering very near paradise. He could already feel her heat. “Do you want me?” Please, God, say yes. “Oh, yes, I want you.” Maverick tried to catch his breath. “Take this off.” He tugged on her shirt. Everly sat up, glancing around the room, then at him. There wasn’t a lot of light in the room, but he’d be able to see her well enough. “Are you sure?” “Now.” She was of the firm opinion that she looked better clothed than naked, but his insistence pushed her doubts away. Skimming the shirt over her head, one hand instinctively came up to cover her breasts. “Don’t. I need this,” he muttered, grasping the offending arm blocking his view and pushing it over her head. In the dim light, his eyes focused on her breasts. Bending his head, he brushed his face against their soft swell, letting his lips rub over them. The woman was petal soft all over. Her breasts swelled at his touch, she couldn’t believe this was happening. Her voice caught in her throat, but she managed to speak. “Maverick?” “Hush.” He rubbed his thumb over her nipple, his mouth crashing into hers, kissing Everly until she had no breath left. Everly thought she would swoon. Her whole body lifted to his as he stroked and teased her breasts. She was shaking with need when his mouth finally closed over the aching peak, sucking the tender bud between his lips, grazing it lightly with his teeth. With a moan, she clutched his shoulders even as he passed a soothing lick over the sensitive spot. Maverick was consumed with desire. He wanted all of her. Bare breasts. Swollen lips. She was amazing and totally at his mercy. With unsteady hands, he covered her tits – cupping, kneading, relishing their weight and warmth. “Feel good?” “Oh, yes,” she moaned, arching her back. This was a fantasy, it had to be. His blood pounded through his head making him dizzy as he felt her gasp when he closed his lips around her, taking as much of her delectable tit into his mouth as he could. Her hands clasped his head, she begged for more and Maverick thought he would cum on the sheets if he didn’t get inside of her soon. “I can’t wait,” he murmured, rising into position over her. The lights from outside filtered through the drapes and he could see her face with her heart in her eyes. “Don’t wait.” Maverick couldn’t misinterpret the invitation when she shed a tiny pair of panties, then wrapped her legs around his hips. “I want you so much. Just remember, I’m not too good at this.” “Experience not required.” Running a hand between them, he made sure she was wet. Oh, hell yeah. She was ready and he was trembling, burning and aching to bury himself deep inside of her. Going to his knees, he took himself in hand, gliding the head of his cock through the slick heat of her pussy. Maverick held himself steady, muscles quivering, as he pressed into her, working himself in inch by inch. She was small and tight. His eyes crossed from the pleasure. “Okay?” “I’m good.” Yes, she was. Her little body seemed to grasp onto his greedily, as he pulled out, then slid all the way back in. “Oh, fuck,” he moaned, holding himself stiff. Supporting his weight by his arms, he gave himself time to get a grip. Beneath him, she wasn’t still. She held onto him tightly, urging him to move. And when he did – rocking, pumping – bucking his hips, the pleasure on her face was the biggest aphrodisiac of all. This was so good. He wanted it to last as long as possible. But his body had other ideas. Once he got started, he couldn’t stop or slow down. Maverick was helpless in the grip of ecstasy. He thrust deep, pumping harder, faster until she cried out, bowing her back and quivering in his arms. He was powerless but to follow, completely lost in the wonder of his midnight dream. After he’d cum, Maverick pulled her into his embrace, the act of release seeming to give him peace. Everly held him close, marveling at what had transpired. A small smile played on her lips. Tingles of elation mixed with shivers of remorse. He’d been in the throes of a nightmare when she’d come to his bed, offering him comfort. Oh, he’d taken it all right. The only problem was that Everly wasn’t sure this was something he’d have done in any other circumstance. Easing out from under him, she made a grab for her shirt, pulling it over her head. When he didn’t move, she felt around in the bed for her panties, but found nothing. “Dang it,” she whispered, then froze when he moved again, his hand running over the covers. Was he looking for her? No matter, he wouldn’t find her. Coward that she was, Everly Winterfell backed out of Maverick’s room and retreated to the safety of her own apartment. The cold light of day would tell the tale. If what they’d done together meant something to him, he’d let her know. And if it didn’t…. Well, she’d deal with that when the time came.

BLURB:

From authors Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert comes a smoldering standalone enemies to lovers romance that will, ahem…check all your boxes.
Reagan
I hate him. Jude Titan is everything that’s wrong with the male sex: cocky, domineering and loaded with swagger. Oh, and did I mention he’s a Republican? Yeah, the guy’s so conservative he leans to the right when walking. And lucky me, I’m running against him for Senate. But I’ve got plenty of fight in me. A golden boy war hero opponent with a smile that leaves melted panties in its wake? Bring. It. On.
Jude

Damn, she’s sexy. Reagan Preston intrigues me from the moment I lay eyes on her. And speaking of laying…I want between those thighs. But I want to make her burn for me first. Every debate and stolen moment is foreplay for us. She claims she hates me, but her body tells a different story. I plan to win this election, but I also want to win the sharp, fiery Democrat who captures my attention like no woman ever has. Politics is filthy, just like all the things I want to do to Reagan Preston.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW:

Dirty Work by Chelle Bliss & Brenda Rothert
Reagan & Jude
POLITICS NEVER FELT SO GOOD
★5 Stars because 10 isn’t an option★

This book has touched me in so many ways. It has so much raw emotion and anguish. My head is reeling, my heart is pounding and I can’t help but feel connected to these beautiful souls. Dirty Work is full of wit, sex appeal, and some serious issues. I loved it and can’t wait to shout it from the rooftops!!!

Jude Titan is my hero in every way. He’s an honorable soldier, a good friend, and the finest male character I’ve read in quite some time. His run for the Senate is anything but dull. He seems to make everything jive and when things seem to get tough, he’s the voice of reason. The calm one letting life’s bad juju roll off his back. I loved him from the very beginning!

Reagan Preston is anything but weak. She’s fighting for a position that she’s not even sure she wants. She takes the good with the bad, but you can tell she still just a woman with feelings and when her circumstances takes a turn for the worse, she takes it in stride and becomes one of my favorite female characters.

The supporting characters cast isn’t too large. It’s just enough to keep the story interesting. Reagan’s campaign manager Lexi is freakin’ hilarious. She made me giggle more times than I can count. Now the other campaign manager, Carl… well… I don’t like him. In fact he rubbed me the wrong way right from the beginning and I just couldn’t get past his jerkface attitude. There are more to this supporting cast, but I’m not ready to talk about them just yet. I’ll let you form your own opinion of them.

So, this book basically grabbed my by the neck and kept me enthralled from cover to cover. The storyline hit home for me as I’m a Republican and my hubs is the diehard Union Democrat. We always differ on stuff, but that’s life. We will continue to cancel each others vote out until I find a way to vote twice!! LOL! I’ve also worked for the DVA and Veterans hold a special place in my heart. I was glad to see so much focus on them.

The characters are powerful, the plot compelling, and the pacing fast and just what the doctor ordered. The tension is constant and the climax superb. Great book chickies!

As if she wasn’t irritable before, she is now. Who doesn’t love Skylar when she is a little irritated. She finds out that the owner of her favorite Chinese restaurant is missing.

about the author

7190519

If you look in the local coffee shop or bookstore you might just find Mariana Thorn. She can usually be found with headphones in and deep into the worlds she has created. There is this thing about her pens if you touch them you might receive a smack to the hand and the well-known glare of destruction.

As a child all her stories involved horses, horses and more horses. There might have been a slight obsession. Writing became more serious in her early twenties but she never dreamed of publishing until much later. Mariana participates yearly in the international event called NANOWRIMO. She has even been known as a Municipal Liaison for that crazy event. There is nothing like the feeling of encouraging other writers, she would say.

Outside of writing one of her favorite places to sit and read are the sunny beaches of Florida. At home in Washington State her favorite activity is riding horses up on the mountain trails. She has an awesome group of family and friends that keep her in coffee and encouragement. Then there is her best buddy Tony, her little dog. She suspects he will try and take over the world someday.
