Cover reveal: The Ruthless Gentleman is here!


Wow, I'm impressed. Isn't he gorgeous? :-D


THE RUTHLESS GENTLEMAN
by LOUISE BAY

BLURB:
As a chief stewardess on luxury superyachts, I massage egos, pamper the spoiled and cater to the most outlandish desires of the rich and famous.
I’ve never had a guest want something I can’t give them. Until British businessman Hayden Wolf comes aboard—all sexy swagger and mysterious requests.
He wants me.
And Hayden Wolf’s a man who’s used to getting exactly what he demands.
Despite being serious and focused. Demanding and ruthless. He’s also charming when I least expect it as well as being devastatingly handsome with an almost irresistible smile.
But guests are strictly off limits and I’ve never broken a rule. Not even bent one. My family are depending on me and I can’t lose my job.
Only problem is Hayden Wolf is looking at me like I just changed his life. And he's touching me like he’s about to change mine.
A standalone romance.

Disgrace by Brittainy C. Cherry

Release Date:
 April 26th, 2018 
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: QuirkyBird Designs
Photographer: Rafa Garcia
Model: Christian Balic

Synopsis:
Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again.
After seventeen years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another.
I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side.
All I wanted was for him to come back to me.
Then, Jackson Emery appeared.
He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart.
We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too young for me, and I was too damaged for him.
Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat.
I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear.
When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away.
Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me.
I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch…
I prayed for him to be mine.
Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.

Unraveled: a smart, action-filled dystopian romance

Book buddies, this reader is happy when she finally reads the finale of a great trilogy like Perfected, by Kate Jarvik Birch. It feels like the right thing to do, having that closure with a gripping story and good characters. UNRAVELED is here :-) And check the giveaway at the end of the post!


About Unraveled (Perfected, #3):
Ella isn’t anyone’s pet anymore, but she’s certainly not free.

After exposing the dark secrets about NuPet’s breeding program, forcing them to repeal the law that allowed genetically modified girls to be kept as pets, she thought girls like her would finally be free. She never dreamed that it would backfire. NuPet may have convinced the public of their intentions to assimilate pets back into society, but Ella knows it’s a lie.

They aren’t planning mass rehabilitation…they’re planning a mass extermination

Now, with the help of a small group of rebels, Ella and Penn, the boy she’d give up her life for, set out to bring down NuPet for good. But when her group gets implicated in a string of bombings, no one is safe. If she can’t untangle the web of blackmail and lies that extends far beyond NuPet’s reach, she won’t just lose her chance at freedom, she’ll lose everyone she loves.



MY OPINION

Beautifully written and inspiring. I'm so glad that I could read the final book because it’s not easy after such a long time since the previous two books. Obviously, I could not deny myself finding out how it all ended. And it's so worth it! 

The thrilling action and tension combine effectively with the vivid feelings conveyed by the sensitive writing. I could feel every doubt, every frustration, every dream and pain Ella and Penn go through as they face this evil, giant enemy that never hesitates to lie, kill and overpower. 

Ella and Penn also have to deal with the cost of this fight to their bond, it is tested but it blooms beautifully in the end. I loved their times together, when they click and when they suffer. I understood when they considered fleeling versus making a stand. It felt real. And then, Ella was like a phoenix bird, gritty in her sweaty, painful efforts, but so brave and inspiring in her flawed humanity.  

Once again, the moral price of taking hard decisions was paramount. Is vengeance or winning against evil a good enough reason to forgo one's soul? Humans as pets bred on a laboratory is such a great theme to ponder this issue. I was mesmerized in the first book and I think it really shows all its depth in this finale. This struggle is interwoven in the scenes which are full of surprises and action. 

Ella is working with a team to overthrow NuPet and the congressman, all of them have a part in this mission, yet she shines with inner strength that's all hers and born of steadfast goodness and resilience.

What a wonderful conclusion to this dystopian trilogy about the meaning of humanity against a backdrop of greed, slavery, violence and the true meaning of freedom. The climax of this novel pulsates with fantastic action and adrenaline, but it also stands out with its own powerful message of self-empowerment and true love. A very inspiring heroine in the midst of an adventure that makes you think and feel. Loved it.


Excerpt from Unraveled:

No one glanced up at us as we left. We were inconsequential, just two kids leaving a pizza place. And that’s exactly what we felt like—kids. Powerless. Weak. Alone.
The bell on the door jingled lightly once more, and we stepped back out into the night. Once again, the sound of jazz music drifted out of the bar next door. I paused, listening to the soulful cry of the saxophone. For a moment, I closed my eyes, focusing on the full, round tone.
And then, just as the last note of the song died away, the bomb went off.
One single note rang in my ears.
High pitched.
Whining.
The saxophone... It had just been playing, wasn’t it? I could remember the low, sweet crooning, but that wasn’t what this sound was.
I shook my head and tried to bring a hand up to my eyes, but something held it clamped down at my side. I tried to wiggle free, but there was something pressing my back, too, making it hard to breathe.
I coughed. My mouth was dry, thick with dust and the taste of metal.
“Penn,” I croaked. “Penn?”
I blinked, trying to turn my head.
In front of me the ground spread out like a battle field.
Red and blue lights blinked behind a cloud of dust. Dark forms moved left and right, up and down. Long limbs waved to one another.
My cheek pressed against something rough.
“Penn!”
“Here’s one,” someone said. They sounded far away, a voice inside a bubble floating somewhere high above my head.
The weight on my back lifted, and a hand slipped beneath me, lifting me from the ground. I choked in a deep gulp of air and balanced on my wobbly legs. Even with the world tipped vertically once more, I couldn’t make sense of it.
“Ella!”
I turned.
The dark outline of Penn stumbled toward me.

Behind him, the building crumbled in on itself. Brick and cement.Wire and steel.Here and there a tipped table, a smashed chair. Broken glass littered the ground, glittering with the orange light of flames that glowed inside the hole where a door had just been. A door. A door. The door that had just jingled shut behind me.

If you read this romance, you will feel Like a Boss

Hi, book buddies :-) I had such fun reading The Baby Maker by Lili Valente that I couldn’t say no to another great story co-written by her. 

I present to you...


Like a Boss
Authors: Sylvia Pierce & Lili Valente
Genre: Sexy, Flirty, Dirty Office Romance
Release Date: March 29, 2018
ADD TO GOODREADS


Blurb

I’m one puff piece away from tearing up my journalism degree and hurling my laptop into the Hudson River. So when I smell a juicy story brewing at my brother’s Wall Street investment firm, I’ll do whatever it takes to get my scoop.

One clever disguise later, I’m deep undercover as the firm’s newest broker, simultaneously gathering intel and spouting off stock tips like a boss.

Go me, right?

Sure, it sounds good on paper, but there’s a catch: The actual boss.

Chief Executive Panty-melter Jack Holt is cocky. Infuriating. And one smoldering look has me ready to violate every rule in the employee handbook.

Thank God my assignment has an expiration date. Because falling for my brother’s best friend and business partner is a lose-lose proposition. Right?

***

In the market for a hot tip? Here’s one.

Don’t bang your best friend’s little sister. Especially when she’s an investigative journalist and your company is the target of her latest exposé.

Unfortunately I’ve got a hard-on for high-risk bets, and I’m more than eager to invest my considerable stock holdings in Ellie Seyfried’s… ahem… glorious assets.

Friends with fringe benefits is a sweet deal, but it’s not long before I’m falling harder than the post-bubble Nasdaq, hooked on Ellie’s sweet smile and determination to make the world a better place.

There’s only one problem…

When it comes to risking my money, I’ve mastered every trick in the book. But how the hell do I risk my heart?



Want to know what I thought? 

I had the most fun reading this romcom. Just the premise got me hooked because how could I resist a little spy disguised as a man infiltrating a firm to uncover some dirty secrets?

 Even though the story unfolded in a different way as I had anticipated, I didn't flinch at the change at all. Not only was the plot addictive and fun, the writing as lively and smart as possible, and the chemistry between Ellie and Jack arousing and hotter than summer kisses, but it also raised important gender issues with a clever, inspiring point of view. 

The female character is adorable and driven, and she tries to better the world for women at work through her investigation. Then, the male character is just swoon-worthy with all his manliness, but also his care for her and for his company. I liked it a lot that he was so interested in her qualities and was drawn to not only her beauty but her personality, her goals and her inner strength. And... oh, the steamy moments!!!! They happened when I couldn't wait any longer and they were pure fireworks.

The funny and sexy dialogues and situations won me over. What's more, the story grows into a hell of a fight for gender equality, love and self-worth, and I loved how every element worked together to create this hilarious, emotional and deeply romantic novel.

 If this duo of writers are capable of this together, I'm all in. Fantastic read!

Claimed by another gorgeous novel


Hey, book buddies. I hope you're having a great week so far. Mine is always good when ALEXA RILEY has a new book for me to enjoy ;-)

Have you been CLAIMED yet?


MY OPINION

Incredibly sweet, full of funny moments and surprises.
This adorably cute novel is the perfect way to pamper your inner romantic. Friends-to-lovers romance at work, with a double POV that shows how deeply fascinated Jordan is with the woman of his dreams, and how adorkably eager Jay is to fall for the scarred man of few words she has lunch with every day at work.
Hilarious dates, infinite patience from a man with his girl, and welcomed appearances from couples in other novels n the series are just a few of the things I loved about this story. He's calm, resourceful. She's smart and assertive yet melts when he gives her syrupy pleasure. Those steamy scenes were enough to make you forget time!
Don't let the cute and lovely fool you, though. There's some gut-wrenching drama too, surrounding family and a danger lurking in the bowels of Osbourn Corp. The story grows so much more than I'd anticipated. I enjoyed how computer science was incorporated into the action. From cute to deep and meaningful, this romance encompasses true love, and the courage to let go of it to love even more. Beautiful all throughout, even that inspirational epilogue that feels like paradise :-D

From New York Times bestselling author Alexa Riley, a friends-to-lovers romance that will bring you the happily-ever-after you’ve been waiting for

Jordan Chen is the man behind the screen. As part of the elite security team for Osbourne Corporation, he has an iron grip on protection, all without having to make close connections with people. Until he meets the beautiful Jay, and suddenly his quiet life doesn’t seem so perfect anymore. He needs more. He needs her.

A workaholic to her core, Jay Rose doesn’t have a lot of men in her life. Smiling in the face of her enemies gets her the results she wants at work, but doesn’t exactly project a warm, welcoming vibe. So she’s surprised when the enigmatic security expert strikes up a friendship with her—surprised but flattered, and maybe a little bit turned on.

A company as powerful as Osbourne Corporation has powerful enemies, and when Jay becomes a target, Jordan realizes there’s nothing he won’t do to bring her home safe.

Escort: a priceless romance by Skye Warren



My heart is fluttering with all the feelings from this incredible read. I could swear my body did some fluttering too :-D 
Sadly, I cannot tell you all the juicy, steamy, overwhelming details about it. Actually, I won’t tell you anything, absolutely anything, about the plot. It would ruin the pristine, arousing, poetic experience of discovering the treasure this book will wrap around your mind as if it were an expensive garment. 
There's a male escort and a virgin who hires him. From there, the author spins a fairy tale of darkness and light, of a tarnished hero and a princess locked in a tower, of revenge and the price of freedom and of love found when all hope is lost. 
Unusually for this author, the POV is from the man’s perspective  (I loved that!), and it was awesome and eye-opening. He's not as dark as other male characters written by SW. I loved Hugo for his hard origins, his elegant seduction, his tender soul. And sweet, admirable Bea has so many nuances. Even her profession was so appealing. The love they share is one beautiful creation. 
I always crave a new story from this author, and this time her gorgeous writing and poignant imagination shine with a unique and touching light.

"Hypnotically romantic…this book reads like a sensual dream and I didn't want to wake up." - Tessa Bailey, New York Times bestselling author


Escort, a sexy new contemporary romance standalone from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren is now LIVE!

There is no shame in pleasure. And no love in business.

I have a blind date tonight, and I know with 100% certainty that I'm getting lucky. There shouldn't be any surprises, not for one as jaded as me, but when I walk into the penthouse suite of L'Etoile, everything changes.
1) For one thing, Bea is heartstoppingly gorgeous. Pale green eyes and endless freckles. Curves I want to spend all night exploring, as if her body was made for me.
2) Her innocence makes me want to use my entire inventory of bedroom tricks on her and then invent a few more.
3) Except that . . . she's a virgin.
I can initiate her into the world of desire without letting her get attached, can't I? A few hours of tutoring, and at the end of the night a small fortune will be deposited into my bank account.
Yes, you read that right. There are many words for what I do. After all, mine is the oldest profession. I'm an escort, which means this date is nothing more than a mutually enjoyable transaction.
But once I realize one night with her won't be enough, I'm the one who's screwed.

Escort.jpg

Enjoy this Excerpt

The word seems to take her aback. “Pleasure?” 
“That’s the nature of my business, yes.” My body tightens, because it would be pleasure indeed to touch this woman. To kiss her. To make her moan for me. Although I might have to rethink that plan, because the word pleasure might as well have been medieval torture based on the way Bea looks at me. “I thought we were going to have sex.” She sounds so forlorn it could break my heart. Instead I laugh, a small huff of breath, because I can’t afford to have a heart. “Sex,” I say, standing to full height, circling the scuffed oriental coffee table, standing behind her chair. 
“And pleasure. Pleasure and sex. They’re interchangeable.” I brush my knuckles over the side of her neck, a demonstration. Her wild curls tickle my skin. It’s provocative, this. If she had agreed to dinner I would have started with small touches, a glance of my palm against the small of her back as I pulled out her chair, holding her hand while we talked over a glass of wine. Perhaps being so bold as to run a finger along the inside of hers, where it’s more sensitive. She would shiver; her gaze would meet mine. There’s an order to these things. You can move fast or slow, but there’s still an order. “We can skip the pleasure part,” she says, her voice high, her breathing faster. Her chest rises and falls in the black dress, made all the more alluring by how much it covers. She’s a mystery. The black sky in the city. I have to work to see her secrets. 
“No,” I chide gently. “We focus on the pleasure. That’s the point.” “What if—” Her breath catches as I drop the back of my hand over her collarbone, a reverse caress. That’s what one does for a skittish creature like her. “What if I have a different point?” “And what point would that be, my sweet Bea?”
“I want to lose my virginity,” she says, so fast it comes out as a single word. IWANTTOLOSEMYVIRGINITY. It takes my lust-warmed brain a full minute to comprehend. She’s not only nervous, this woman. She’s a virgin. My hand freezes. I yank it away. 
“Pardon me?” I can’t have heard her correctly. There is no chance in hell that this beautiful young woman, as strange and interesting as she is, is a virgin. No chance in hell that I was the one tasked to be her first. I could not possibly spread her legs and thrust inside her, knowing that no one’s ever been there. It would be a physical impossibility. Never. No possible way. “It doesn’t have to take long,” she says, suddenly earnest. Almost begging me. “I don’t need…you know…whatever you do for other women. I only want the sex.” My God. 
“You are insane.” A scrunch of her nose. “Well, you don’t have to sound too surprised. It is what I requested when I called. The woman said that’s what you do.” “I’m not taking your virginity.” On some level I might have guessed this about her. If I had considered it even possible, I might have. Virgins don’t hire me. They stammer and giggle and turn away from me, their protective instincts strong enough to send them in the opposite direction. So perhaps I can be forgiven for not recognizing this one, so forthright. Bea frowns. 
“Is that a different department or something?” She’s mocking me. She’s mocking me for being, well, prudish, and I feel strangely buoyant. I could float away with the absurdity of it. “Yes, it’s a different department. The department of a frat boy who fumbles around in the dark.” “Are you seriously not going to do it?” The irony is enough to flatten me, that this is a woman I might have pursued outside this job. She would have been too young for me, even if I weren’t an escort and she wasn’t my client. That wouldn’t have stopped me from wanting her. But in another incarnation, if I had been one of those fumbling frat boys, I would have followed this woman to the ends of the earth. That’s a hypothetical scenario on multiple levels, but I’m good at hypotheticals, which is another reason I’m good at my job. So good that I please every single client I’ve ever had.

Skye Warren is the New York Times bestselling author of dangerous romance such as the Endgame trilogy. Her books have been featured in Jezebel, Buzzfeed, USA Today Happily Ever After, Glamour, and Elle Magazine. She makes her home in Texas with her loving family, sweet dogs, and evil cat.
