Title: Feels Like Falling
Author: Elle Keating
Release Date: November 13, 2018
Publisher: Self-published
Series: Dangerous Love #5
Genres: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

Luke McGinnis is the responsible, quiet older brother. The loving son who enjoys working side-by-side with his father at the winery they co-own. At twenty-nine years old, Luke is a success story, the rags-to-riches kind. That’s what people see. Not the ugly past he fights to keep buried… a past that keeps him from really living.

Peyton Matthews is a household name. As a model, her face has been on the covers of countless magazines and she now has more money than she will ever know what to do with. But that smile she flashes for the photographers and the media is just an illusion. That pretty package everyone envies has been her armor, her protection, and she doesn’t want anyone to find a chink in it… especially not the winery owner who looks at her like he knows the dark secrets she keeps.

FELLS LIKE FALLING Excerpt
Copyright © 2018 Elle Keating

 

 

“Did I do something wrong?”
Luke didn’t turn and look at her. He just continued to poke that fire when he said, “No.”
“Are you angry that I ruined your plans with Gabe last night?” It was a lame question. But really, Peyton didn’t know what else she could have done wrong, so whatever…as long as she kept him talking.
“No.”
No. That was all she was entitled to. His one-word answers drove her crazy, especially since he didn’t seem to have any problem spending over ten minutes alone with Tasha talking or…maybe he didn’t spend that time engaging in conversation because maybe they were too busy…
“Did you f**k Tasha?”
He dropped the poker, sending it crashing to the floor. He picked it up, propped it against the brick fireplace and faced her. “No.”
“But she asked you to…to f**k her. Didn’t she?”
“Yes.”
Peyton should have been happy and ridden out that wave of relief, but she wasn’t. His admission that he had just shot down Tasha, one of the sexiest supermodels in the world, only brought on more questions. Questions she really had no business asking. But what did she really have to lose? He had already seen her at her worst. Covered in sand and puke, she imagined that she had looked like a real keeper. So she fired away.
“Are you married?”
He took two steps toward her. “No.”
“Have a girlfriend?” Her voice wavered a bit. She had been more confident when he had been across the room poking the damn fire, but now he was drifting toward her, causing her to lose her nerve.
Three more steps. “No.”
“Oh.” That was all she could get out. She had done a lot of embarrassing things in her life, like when she had taken a header off the catwalk at a major show, or when she had a serious wardrobe malfunction and unintentionally flashed hundreds of people her ass. And then there were those photos of her that were posted on social media before she had gotten her s*it together. But this moment right here. This claimed the number one spot. “I get it. You’re just not interested…in me.”
Or maybe he senses what you are…
He made the distance between them disappear with two strides. His hands gripped her waist as he pinned her against the wall of windows at her back. “Do you honestly believe that I’m not attracted to you?”
His breathing was labored like hers and she was fighting to regain her composure. Trapped in his arms, his heated eyes searching hers, she fumbled for words. “I…I don’t know what you’re thinking. What you want.”
He swallowed hard and that vein near his temple pumped ferociously. His right hand tightened around her waist and his left cupped her cheek. “What do you want from me, Peyton?” he asked, his voice strained. He sounded as if he was in pain. And that’s when she felt something rock-hard press against her core. She didn’t need to look down or see the outline of his bulge to know that he was huge. She could feel it…every fucking where. “Say it,” he demanded.
“I want you to kiss me…please.”

TUNES Excerpt
Copyright © 2018 KC Enders
Gracyn’s gone. She f***ing left me in the middle of the night, buck-a** naked and in her bed.
I waited more than an hour for her to come back from wherever she’d scampered off to, almost certain that she’d just gone out to grab us some breakfast. Took a shower and threw on my clothes from last night. Well, my board shorts because my favorite f***ing shirt was gone, too.
No Gracyn.
No note.
No shirt.
Nothing.
The sun blazes down on my bare shoulders as I walk back to my sh**ty motel. It’s petty and stupid, but I’m too p**sed off to put on a different T-shirt. It’s the principle.
My fist connects with Ian’s door with three solid thumps. The last thing I want to do is walk in on him getting a** when my chick had taken her fill and bailed on me. No f***ing way I feel like dealing with his s**t over this. I don’t want to hear it.
“Dude, you good?” I call as I hit the door again.
“S’open,” Nate yells. “Hey, didn’t think we’d see you today. She leaves tomorrow, right? That chick you’ve been hanging with all week,” he asks, looking away from the movie he’s watching, head propped up against the headboard of his bed.
“F**k, man. Forgot we swapped rooms. I’ll—”
Ian looks up from his laptop and leans back, the colorful tats shifting as he folds his arms across his chest. “Jesus, what did she do? Steal your clothes and skip town?” The disgusted look on his face probably mirrors my own.
The door closes behind me as I cross the room and sit my ass down on the edge of the empty bed. I dig through Ian’s pack for a T-shirt. I pull on the first one I find, not caring if it’s clean, and flop back, staring at the water stains blooming across the ceiling by the bathroom. Hopefully, it’s the shower leaking in the room above us and not the sh***er.
What the f**k happened? Why did she leave like that?
“Gavin? Seriously, man, what happened?” Nate’s sitting on the edge of his bed, features twisted in concern.
“I don’t know. I woke up, and she was gone.”
“Gone? Or out for a minute?”
“Gone. Left. Bags packed, including my f***ing shirt. Just gone.” No matter how many times I go over it in my mind, it doesn’t congeal into anything that makes sense.
“S**t, man. That sucks balls,” Ian mumbles as he goes back to tapping at his keyboard. “What’re you gonna do? You text her yet?”
If only.
I run my hands through my hair, gathering it in my fists, and blow out a frustrated breath. “I don’t have her number.”
“Wait, what? You spent all f***ing week with her. How do you not have her number?”
I roll my head to the side, so he can see just how f***ing miserable I am. “I spent all f***ing week with her. I didn’t really need it … until now.” Jesus, this is the worst. “What time are we playing tonight?”
“Ten, down on the beach. So … nothing? You got nothing? No way to find her?” Nate asks.
“F**k. No, not really. Just a general idea of where she goes to school, and … no, I don’t even have a last name. I mean, I’m sure I could try to stalk the s**t out of her, but she bolted, man.”
“Yeah … I guess she just wasn’t that into you, man. F***ed the rocker on spring break and went back to her Ivy League boyfriend.” As soon as the words leave his mouth, Ian cringes, gritting his teeth and sucking a breath through them. “Sorry, s**t. I didn’t mean …”
“Whatever.” I pull out my phone, hoping there’s a message, but this day is nothing but all kinds of disappointments. I pop my earbuds in and pull up my post-show playlist. I crank some old school ’70s disco to clear my mind. And hopefully drift off to sleep.

BLOG TOUR☆RHENNA MORGAN~STAND AND DELIVER☆#Giveawsy, #Excerpt,#Review

 

 

Security expert Beckett Tate has met his match in colleague Gia Sinclair. He’s given her time to get used to the idea of “them,” but her time is up and he’s ready to go all in on claiming what’s his. When someone attacks Gia’s character and career they’ll need to find a balance between her independence and his fierce desire to protect. Return to Rhenna Morgan’s sexy Men of Haven series available 2018 from Carina Press!

About Stand & Deliver:

Title: Stand & Deliver
Author: Rhenna Morgan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 11th, 2018
Publisher: Carina Press
Series: Men of Haven
Format: Digital eBook / Print
Digital ISBN: B076ZV47MC
Print ISBN: 9781335948304

Synopsis:

Live hard, f*ck harder and make their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six Men of Haven bleed by, taking what they want, always watching each other’s backs and loving the women they claim with unyielding tenderness and fierce.

Security expert Beckett Tate has met his match in colleague Gia Sinclair. He longs to run his hands over each and every one of her lush curves. She’s wicked smart and wicked hot. He’s given her time to get used to the idea of “them,” but her time is up and he’s ready to go all in on claiming what’s his.

Despite her love of all things girlie, Gia’s no typical Southern belle. She’s built her skills and reputation in a field normally dominated by men, and now she has a kick-ass career she loves. She certainly doesn’t need a man to take care of her—especially not one who’s pure alpha. Still, Beckett’s the one man who can satisfy the desires she’s hidden under her tough exterior, and she’s hooked.

Letting Beckett take the lead in the bedroom comes naturally to Gia—not constantly proving herself to him professionally is more of a struggle. And when someone attacks her character and career, Gia and Beckett will have to find a balance: her willingness to let go just a little, with his trust in her abilities and his deep, primal need to protect his woman.

Excerpt:

Copyright© 2018 Stand & Deliver

Rhenna Morgan

As light as Gia was, getting her in the house was a breeze, and thanks to Knox, her alarm didn’t pose a problem either. Thank God, he’d actually convinced her to let his company be the one to install the system when she moved in. Otherwise, he’d have had a whole different set of problems to juggle.

Soft lamplight spilled from the corner of the living room, so Beckett aimed that direction and laid Gia out on the couch. Once settled, he crouched beside her and smoothed her hair away from her face.

The impact hit him instantly, the soft and silky strands jolting his amplified need for touch into high gear and tempting him like a junkie on a four-day dry spell. As out as she was, he could toy with the long strands and sample the skin on her face and neck for hours and she’d likely never remember a thing. The thing was, if he ever got the chance to touch her that way, he’d want her to remember. Would want to see the response in her eyes and learn how her body reacted to his touch.

He braced on hand on the couch above her head instead. The fabric was nowhere near as luxurious as her hair, but it was soft like the chairs he kept at his place and kept him from giving into touching where he shouldn’t.

That was the thing about people like him. Touch was everything. The thing he needed to stay in balance and keep his head and impulses in check. While his sensory processing disorder—or SPD—wasn’t as debilitating as it was for some people, he’d sure as hell learned not to underestimate it.

He leaned in and lowered his voice, knowing full well she probably wouldn’t hear or understand a word he said. “How about you chill here for a bit, gorgeous. Let me go get things ready for you upstairs.”

Gia moaned and rolled to one side, tucking her hands beneath her cheek.

He couldn’t help but chuckle. The pose was cute. Totally innocent and sweet. Which meant she’d be mortified if she had any clue he’d seen it. “I’m gonna take that for a yes.”

My thoughts

Stand and Deliver by Rhenna Morgan is a sexy Contemporary Romance. #5 in the “Men of Haven” series, but can be read as a stand alone. Beckett Tate had been waiting for Gia Sinclair for three years. The friendship between these two characters is a perfect foundation for their steamy encounters which made for a page-turning, passionate love story. Ms. Rhenna has expertly written a story filled with steamy  passion,  a bit of angst, emotional,  action with a touch of humor and lots of romance. Enjoyable characters and a string storyline, which is easy to follow and will grip your heart. If you enjoy alpha males, plenty of passion, and strong heroines,  then STAND AND DELIVER is a story for you to pick up next.

“I voluntarily received a complimentary copy, however,  these are my honest opinions. I was in no way required nor compensated to write a review.”

You Don’t Know Jack Schmidt

By Susan Renee


Blurb:
I’ve always been the social butterfly, the girl with an Angry Vagina Box, the one who goes home with just about anyone for a booty call. So, why in the hell am I lying in bed alone on a Friday night downloading The Watering Hole dating app onto my phone?
Wait, what? No. Why am I creating a profile? No, no, fingers! Stop scrolling!
Whoa…he’s cute.
Kind of nerdy chic, but cute.
I bet he’s a barista.
Why am I drooling over the guy who has a strong set of morals and only wears matching socks? Who the hell is this guy?

Pre-Order for 99 Pennies!


Snippets:
# 1
“Hey Jacoby?” I say quietly as we sit in the treehouse copying math homework off each other. “Yeah?”
I’ve been waiting to ask him this question since yesterday, but I had to be certain we were alone first. Going through the foster system as much as I have sucks on so many levels. I may have made it to the eighth grade, but there’s so much I don’t know, and nobody to ask except my new best friend.
“Uh, so…do you know…what a twinkie is?”

 

# 2
“The Watering Hole…it sounds like a pee trough or something.” I shake my head and lay my phone down next to me, willing myself to fall asleep before I do something stupid. The idea waffles back and forth in my mind for almost fifteen minutes. I don’t know what the heck makes me do it, but my finger hits the link to download the app before I can stop myself.
“I can’t believe I’m doing this.” I mumble. Within about fifteen seconds The Watering Hole app is on my phone and I’m opening it to see what happens. Will there be a list of guys I can just choose from? “I bet they’ll all be mega nerds who boast what big dicks they have.” I snort. “‘Cause you know, they speak Spockly and carry big dicks.”

 

# 3
I watch as she reaches for a bottle of lotion. She squirts some into her hand and looks up at me again. “You are about to taste like hot buttered rum.” She says. “My favorite.” She licks her lips and runs her hand up and down my length spreading what must be a flavored lube all around me. I gasp as a cool sensation spreads at her touch, and hold my breath for what she might do next.
She’s going to do it.
Breathe.
Shit.
Breathe Jack. You got this.
Oh, my God, she’s really going to do it.
My very first blow job.

INTERVIEW with A.P. Aruna….

MBA&M: Nice to meet you,  Ms. Aruna, welcome to My Book Addiction and More.  Can you please tell our readers a bit about yourself?

I’m a Cambodian woman of mixed blood, married to an aspiring author, and of course he had something to do with my idea to write entertaining fiction. We live in a little green house in the countryside in southern Cambodia. No kids yet, but we’re working on it.

MBA&M: What was your inspiration for writing a Dark Erotic Thriller, set in a psychiatric hospital?

I read a book, The CIA’s Control of Candy Jones, by Donald Bain, and I thought this would make a good novel. Candy was a famous model in the 1940’s, a popular pinup girl second only to Betty Grable. She later ran a modeling agency and married a radio talk show host who soon began to notice that at times she seemed to be a totally different person. Through many sessions of hypnosis it was discovered that she had been a hypno-programmed spy who went on missions under an alter-ego called Arlene Grant. In other words she was a real life Manchurian Candidate.

MBA&M: How much research was entailed in writing a story about a “sensual maze of mind control and torture”?

Quite a bit, and I’m still not finished. The first book I read was by John Marks, The Search for the Manchurian Candidate: The CIA & Mind Control and I was becoming more convinced that all this stuff was real, I learned that these mind control experiments were being done in reputable hospitals by doctors and psychiatrists who were getting money from the CIA. Then I read Journey into Madness by Gordon Thomas which contained graphic descriptions of what they did to these poor souls. That’s where I got the idea of patients wearing helmets 24/7 with a tape playing the same message over and over again – it was actually true! Also, there are a lot of books out there by people who claim to have been victims of these experiments. Hallucinatory drugs, electroshock, and prolonged isolation in a dark room – these were some of the methods the hospitals used.

MBA&M: Who was your favorite character and why?

I got the most enjoyment writing Anisa, a real kick-ass b***h, a cold, calculating, and dangerous woman who outsmarts her adversaries and who is able to deal with any situation.

MBA&M: How did you decide the different personalities?

The CIA was looking for a perfect spy, one who would not reveal sensitive information, and who could perform nefarious tasks without remembering what they did, and that was the role assigned to Anisa. Cherry Cummins was the sex bait, a Mata Hari type who could be used to access Anisa’s targets, or trap powerful men into compromising situations for purposes of blackmail. Katrina, the main personality, is shy and introverted, almost boring; someone who could never be expected to behave out of the ordinary. And while she’s totally unaware she is leading alternate lives, these other characters are aspects of her own personality, although of course over-inflated. I think that most women (and men) have urges, from time to time, of doing something wild and exciting, something outside of the humdrum of daily living. So, one could describe Katrina as a female Walter Mitty.

MBA&M: When not writing, what do you do to relax?

We live on a large patch of land where we planted many trees and flowers, and I love tending to them, watering, weeding, and giving them food (mostly bat shit!). It’s quite meditative for me.

MBA&M: What are your immediate plans for the future, in terms of writing?

I’m working on Book 2, Healing, which will not be as light as Book 1, since I want to communicate something of the horrors of what really happened to those unfortunate victims who suffered from the mind control experiments. Yet, the story will bring some closure in a positive way and have a happy ending.

 

Thank you, S.P. Aruna, for stopping by today! We wish you the very best!

Excerpt

Tonight proved our love is stronger than anything—the feelings and emotions all real.

The only light in the room is the burning fireplace, crackling across the way from the bed. I watch the orange and yellow flames mesh, regaining my bearings. Shay’s warmth on top of my chest is welcoming, helping me relax. I notice she’s been silent for a few minutes, and when I look down I’m met by her sleeping form.

Everything that has happened in the past twenty-four hours wore my girl out. But I’m more than happy just sitting here listening to her light breathing as she sleeps. She looks beautiful, like nothing in this world could disturb her. I want this moment to last forever. I want my time with her to last far past the time we are given here on earth. I don’t know if I believe in eternity, but she sure makes me hopeful that there will be one. She makes me feel like the day I was born only half of me entered the world while the other half of me waited with her and the day we met was the day I became complete again.

Lightly, I move the backside of my fingers down her cheek, and when my thumb makes it to her lips I graze the round edges. Remembering the way she kissed me back when I took away her virginity. Looking at her now, I feel a sense of completion. I’m not only falling, but in essence, also surrendering my heart, soul, and body for the chance to love someone.

This is the moment that changes a boy into a man. The moment one falls in love. Not only am I responsible for loving this woman, but I’m also now in charge of protecting her heart and honoring any promise I give her from here on out.

For women, virginity is the one thing that they give to someone that they’ve fallen in love with. Well, most women. The one thing they give away as a symbol of their love and commitment to their partner. But what virginity is to women, is what a heart is to a man. We save that shit with us until the right woman comes along to claim it. That’s when we then give it away, without a second thought or regret. Shayla took my heart, and I will never be able to get it back.

“Why are you looking at me like that?” Her voice is soft and laced in a sleepy rasp.

“You look beautiful when you sleep.”

She searches my eyes, seeing if I’m lying or hiding anything from her. Letting her gaze falter for a second she moves on, accepting my answer. She stretches before placing her head back on her spot above my heart.

PROMO~ DISCIPLINING THE BEAST~ TINA DONAHUE…*Mature Content, 18+*

Disciplining the Beast (Taming the Beast, Book 5) by Tina Donahue

Date of Publication: August 9, 2016

Blurb

Thank heaven for babes who like to raise hell.

Taming the Beast, Book 5

Wynona relishes her job as a reaper. Some jerkwad pisses her off? He’s toast. Any douchebag who mistreats a woman better watch out. Lately, she’s been enjoying it a little too much—and Heaven is not amused.

Wings temporarily clipped, she’s doing time working as an enforcer at From Crud to Stud. The body count isn’t what she’s used to, but at least the scenery—that is, her celestial parole officer—is tall, dark, and deliciously hot.

Rafael can’t take his eyes off Wynona. No, really. She’s a 24/7, one-on-one job. No matter how hard this angel rides her, she begs for more. Finding a way to bring out her best side is turning out to be the greatest challenge of his career.

She’s sassy and sexy, and she’s brought out a side of him he never knew existed—an inner Dom that is only too willing to follow her down the garden path of unrestrained indulgence. And once they set foot on that slippery slope, there’s no turning back.

Warning: Virtue has met its match. Celebrates bondage, discipline, voyeurism, and crazy good sex in an office setting, fetish club, and everywhere else. The faint of heart are advised to turn back now.

Blurb For Miranda’s Dilemma

Erotic Historical Romance ~

Courtesan/Non-virginal Heroine

Poised to become Mayfair’s most

expensive and exclusive courtesan, Miss Miranda Jones finds her

rise inexplicably blocked by a socially

powerful nobleman. Scorned by her ducal father and determined to

attain everything that life has denied her due to an accident of birth,

she’s not about to let this arrogant earl stop her.

Adrian Sutherland, the Earl of Danvers,

saw his father destroyed by a heartless, predatory courtesan. He has no time or patience

for such exotic, expensive ladybirds. He’s far too busy

restoring his family’s wealth and reputation whilst doing what he can to

protect his friends from the clutches of all the scheming courtesans

of London.

Then a moment of compassion turns

intense dislike to breathless passion, and

these two strong-willed, fiercely proud

people are compelled to

indulge in a brief affair. Each is

convinced that they can satisfy

their craving for the other without

emotional risk.

But neither realizes that a little

dalliance can be a dangerous thing.

Reader Advisory: This is an erotic

historical romance and it

contains frank, frequent love scenes,

sexual slang and descriptions

and general bedchamber naughtiness. The

characters discuss abuse

issues from their backstories during

the course of their developing

relationship.

Blurb for A Most Demanding Mistress:

Miss Miranda Jones is indisputably the

most beautiful, elegant and sought after courtesan in all of London.

She hides a past full of pain and rejection beneath an exterior of

pride. She knows that noblemen put

their own fickle interests first

and cannot be trusted. Scorned by ducal

father, she never needed or

expected anything from a man, except

his financial support. Luxurious

living makes a soothing balm against

the sting of the ultimate rejection.

Now she’s madly in love with a

nobleman who cannot

afford to keep her in such extravagant

style. And she wonders if a

courtesan can ever afford to indulge

her own passions? Can she really

gamble so capriciously on her own

future and put the happiness of the

moment above future security? Will her

gentleman prove himself no

better than any other nobleman that she

has known?

Adrian Sutherland, the Earl of Danvers,

has seen the men of his family

destroyed through their obsessive need

to possess beautiful women.

He’d always thought himself immune to

such unworthy drives. Now he’s

fallen under the spell of Miss Miranda

Jones.

Miss Jones’ high standards and past

reputation foretells that she’ll be a most

demanding mistress. Despite his

relative lack of funds, Adrian is

determined to work hard to protect and

provide for her. Passion led

this skeptical gentleman to declare

himself in love. Yet as they

enter a protector and mistress

relationship, Adrian finds himself

consumed with possessiveness. And he

can’t help but wonder if is it

true love that motivates him? Or is it

the need to own her stunning

beauty? He must find the answer before

their tempestuous romance

breaks both of their hearts.

A Most Demanding Mistress is part of

the Fashionably Impure Series and is best read after Miranda’s

Dilemma.

Reader advisory: This story contains

frank sexual language and general bedchamber naughtiness. Abuse

issues are alluded to in the backstory.
