Book Description:

Justin Tracy, the perennial life of the party, is used to being teased by his friends about his success with the ladies. Not that he’ll ever get serious with one. Why should he? His life is absolutely perfect the way it is. But at his brother’s bachelor party, a drunken bet about his womanizing skill gets a little out of control. Before he knows it, his friends have invited his new tenant – a woman he’s never even met – to go to his brother’s wedding with him.

Single mom Maddy Trainor has just moved back to Chicago, ready to reclaim her life and conquer the city. Maddy’s determined to get her new business off the ground and build a happy home for her son, Teddy. She didn’t expect a gorgeous landlord, but ogling Justin Tracy is definitely a bonus to her new apartment.

Justin intends to apologize to Maddy for the out-of-the-blue wedding invitation and get gone, but his new neighbor turns out to be funny, whip-smart, and sexy as hell. Why not take her to the wedding for real? Just as friends, of course. To Maddy, the wedding – one night of champagne and dancing with a self-admitted Peter Pan – sounds like amazing no-strings fun. But the sparks that blaze between the two of them can’t be contained to one night. And two people who think they have life figured out are about to realize they know nothing about love …

Ding! 

Justin caught her hand and pulled her out of the elevator before the doors even had a chance to fully open. “I’m all the way at the end of the hall.” 

He was walking too fast for her sore feet; she tripped in her heels. “Wait. Slow down. My feet. Blisters.” 

He assessed the complicated gold sandals. “How long does it take to get those off?” 

Given the tiny buckle on the ankle strap … with the way her hands were shaking… She sighed. “Two minutes.” 

He grinned, mischief sparking in his eyes. “That’s two minutes too long.” Without another word, he lunged forward and threw her over his shoulder in a fireman’s hold. 

Maddy shrieked. She’d never been picked up literally by a man before. Upside down, she felt both ridiculous and ridiculously feminine. Uncontrolled laugher—her noisy, high-pitched kind—bubbled out of her mouth. She wouldn’t have thought she could move from unspeakable arousal to hysterical laughter in the space of five seconds, but apparently that’s what Justin did to her. 

“Almost there,” he called. 

Another thirty seconds and he carefully set her down. She clung to his shoulders until she stopped quivering. Eyes sparkling, Justin inserted the key card into the lock. “After you.” 

“Oh,” she breathed. The room was so pretty. Dark wood furniture, a crisp, white duvet on the bed, and an incredible view of Michigan Avenue. 

“The hotel sent up a bottle of champagne as a thank you,” Justin said. “Can I pour you a glass?” 

“Please.” She’d stopped drinking at the wedding once the dancing had started. Since that was more than three hours ago, she was stone-cold sober now. And since the laughter had subsided and the fact that she was in a hotel room with a man was sinking in, a glass of liquid courage would be very welcome indeed. 

Although ... she wasn’t nervous, actually. There was nothing to be nervous about. She was a grown woman whose child was perfectly safe. For once, her legs were shaved and her bikini area was waxed. She was with a no-strings-attached man, but one who was genuinely kind and committed to his family. Someone funny. Someone trustworthy. 

Justin handed her a glass of champagne and finished removing his bow tie. 

Someone unbelievably gorgeous. Someone who wanted her badly, if his hungry expression was anything to go by. 

She set her champagne glass on the nightstand and slowly turned. “Unzip me?”

Book Description:
   
I broke her heart ten years ago and left town. She hates me, and rightly so. It doesn’t matter that the rest of the country loves me, that I’m a starting quarterback with a multimillion-dollar contract. Because when I look in the mirror, all I see is a failure who was too young—and too afraid—to fight for what I wanted. But I’m not that guy anymore, and all I need is one shot to convince her. *** He has no idea what happened after he left. And now I’m supposed to work alongside him like we don’t have this huge, messy history? But I’m older now, wiser, and I won’t let anything stand in my way of doing a good job for this league. Not even one overpaid, arrogant player who thinks we’re going to kiss and make up. News flash, buddy: I am over you.  

            

My Review:

If you are looking for a sweet romance, look no further.  I quite enjoyed this second chance romance, even when I wanted to hit the Hero on the head, lol.  Dear Jane is the story of first loves, the mistakes of youth, the fear of failure, the truth in forgiveness, and the knowledge that while we can't go back in time we can go back to the people who have always loved us if we go back with our hearts and minds open.  

I really loved Jane.  She is an amazingly resilient heroine, who makes her way in the world on her own terms, through knowledge and hard work.  She has made palace for herself in a man's world and no one questions her right to be there.  I love her and Wes's back story and the way that kendall Ryan weaves in through their current relationship.  While it is a huge part of where they have come from and it plays a part in their coming back together, I loved that it wasn't the reason they came back together, that they find their older, more mature selves just as in love with each other as they had been when they were 'children'.

Wes is also a really great character, when I am not wanting to give him a good shake that is.  He knows what he wants in life and he works hard to get it, never giving up, never backing down.  Problem is he is n't the self-assured, cocky guy that the public thinks he is or that they think he should be.  he is actually quite self-depracating and unsure of himself, especially when it comes to the things that matter the most to him.  Why does he work so hard to be the best quarterback? Because of his fear that he won't be the best.  Why does he run repeatedly away from the love of his life?  Because he is afraid to lose his focus, because he is afraid he can't measure up to the man he believes and he thinks others believe he should be for her.  He is a bit of a conundrum, this star football player with the world at his finger tips, and yet he's afraid to grasp it.  

I would have really enjoyed maybe a little more backstory on the why's of his prior relationship failing.  You know me and I like to see karma getting her own when someone deserves is and considering the relationship he is leaving when he switches teams I would have liked to see the outcome of that.  I also wouldn't have minded a closer look at the rivalry between the two teams now that the 'cat is out of the bag' on his prior relationship and since he has moved teams. 

Dear Jane is a super quick sweet read and is the perfect book to give you just that little bit of romance you might need.  Its a great choice of book to pick up anytime, but especially when you are in-between reads and maybe not ready for your next 'big emotional' book.

Lovers at Heart, Reimagined by Melissa Foster Excerpt and GiveAway

Today we have the blog tour for Melissa Foster’s LOVERS AT HEART, REIMAGINED! 

Check out this fantastic new contemporary romance and be sure to grab your copy today!

 

Book Description:

Discover the magic of New York Times bestseller Melissa Foster's writing, and see why millions of readers have fallen in love with the Bradens. A Note From The Author: 

Treat Braden and Max Armstrong's love story is the beginning of my beloved Braden series and introduces you to some of my favorite characters, and to a family that has become so real to me, they're always by my side. If you are already a fan of the Love in Bloom big-family romance collection, you may have read Treat and Max's original story, Lovers at Heart. For the past several years, I have had the nagging feeling that there was more to Treat and Max's story than I had originally thought. One of the greatest things about being a writer is the ability to reimagine worlds and create new stories. I wanted to give Treat and Max a more mature story without losing the essence of who they are. This is Treat and Max's story, reimagined, and I hope you love it as much as I do.

  In LOVERS AT HEART, REIMAGINED…

Treat Braden wasn’t looking for love when Max Armstrong walked into his Nassau resort, but he saw right through the efficient and capable facade she wore like a shield to the sweet, sensual woman beneath. One magnificent evening together sparked an intense connection, and for the first time in his life Treat wanted more than a casual affair. But something caused Max to turn away, and now, after weeks of unanswered phone calls and longing for the one woman he cannot have, Treat is going back to his family’s ranch to try to finally move on.   A chance encounter brings Treat and Max together again, and it turns into a night of intense passion and honesty. When Max reveals her secret, painful past, Treat vows to do everything within his power to win Max’s heart forever—including helping her finally face her demons head-on.






Excerpt:

“Hey, Max, look!” Chaz waved across the street to Treat and his beautiful companion. “Treat! Over here. Hey, buddy. How are you?”

Oh no. No, no, no. This could not be happening. Max turned away, frantically running through excuses to hightail it out of there. Sick? Need to go help the crew. Lighting, yeah, that could work. She turned with her excuse at the ready, opening her mouth to speak. Treat’s eyes locked on hers, and her mouth went dry.

“Chaz, Max, how are you?” Treat asked in that deep, sexy voice that made her legs turn to wet noodles.

Chaz said something, but it was all she could do to stare at the woman who had her hand on Treat’s shoulder. She was gorgeous, with a friendly smile. Of course she had a friendly smile. She had Treat! Max hated thegreen-eyed monster clinging to her shoulders. She wasn’t used to it, and she didn’t like the way it made her feel.

“Hi. I’m Savannah.” The woman extended her hand in greeting.

Savannah. What kind of name is that? She must be a model or something with those long legs and slim body. Max looked at Treat in his expensive suit and finely pressed shirt. Then she glanced down at her own less-than-glamorous attire. She absently touched her efficient ponytail, and cringed.

“Hi. I’m Chaz Crew.” He shook Savannah’s hand. “And this is Max Armstrong.”

Max gave Savannah’s hand a quick shake and tried her best to smile, then buried her nose in her planner before the woman—or Treat—could strike up a conversation.

While Chaz and Savannah talked, Treat moved to her side, bringing a wave of the spicy, masculine cologne she smelled in her dreams. “Max. How have you been?”

Too frazzled to face him, she kept her eyes trained on her planner. “Fine, thanks.”

“I’m glad we ran into each other. I’ve been thinking about Nassau.”

Giving me that look wasn’t enough? You needed to flaunt another woman in front of me just to show me what I already know? That you could have anyone you want?

“Max,” he said a little quieter. “I’m sorry for what happened there.”

She wanted to dislike him, to run away and never look back, because that look he’d given her had been too reminiscent of the ex-boyfriend she’d spent years trying to forget. But the sincerity in his voice brought her gaze to his, and Treat was looking at her like he had in Nassau, as if she was all he saw. Memories tumbled in, one after another—their incredible kisses, the feel of his strong arms around her, his sweet whispers in her ear…

Those intimate memories were like an addictive cocktail, and she reveled in their intoxicating sweetness. She should not be thinking about them, or how different things might have been if she had woken up in hisarms the next morning. And he should not be looking at her like that when he was with his ridiculously gorgeous girlfriend.

Unwilling to put herself in a position to be hurt again, and hanging on to that resolve by a thread, Max said, “I have no idea what you’re talking about.”

Hurt and confusion rose in his eyes, fraying that thread to near breaking.

“Come on, Treat,” Savannah urged. “Let’s get some coffee and catch up.”

Treat held Max’s gaze a beat too long, and she felt her cheeks flush with desire. She wanted to tell him it was okay—even though it wasn’t—to take his handsome face between her hands, and kiss his luscious lips one more time. Why were her feelings for him so overwhelming? She’d never believed in love at first sight, and certainly not with a man who could be so quick to judge her, but her heart was racing the way it had the first time she’d seen him in Nassau.

“Treat?” Savannah’s eyes darted curiously between Treat and Max.

“Right,” Treat said sharply. “Max, may I call you?”

How can you ask me that with your girlfriend standing right there?

“You have a date with Dad, remember?” Savannah said in a singsong voice.

“Dad?” The word slipped from Max’s lips before she had a chance to stop it.

“Yes. I’m here to visit with my father,” Treat said. “Savannah hijacked me on the way to his ranch.”

There was that look again. Not the one he’d given her, but the way he looked lovingly at Savannah. “Nothing like being hijacked by a beautiful woman,” Max said a little too snarkily. Jealousy was not a pretty thing.

Amusement rose in Treat’s eyes. “She’s beautiful, yes, but she’s also my younger sister.”

Savannah crinkled her nose at him in a cute, sisterly way. “He’s so not my type, all suited up and proper. Hey, Max, why don’t you and Chaz join us for coffee?”

Max was too embarrassed about her misconception and was still struggling with too many emotions to be clear-headed. “I have to be on-site to field any problems that come up, and I have so much to do—”

“Go, Max. You deserve the break,” Chaz urged. “She works like a maniac sunup till sundown. Max, just keep your earpiece on in case there’s an emergency.” He turned to the others and said, “Sorry, guys. I appreciate the offer, but I’ve got to run to a meeting. Max, don’t forget to ask Joey about that sign when you have a chance.”

She watched Chaz walk away and quickly remembered the list of excuses she’d already thought up. “I actually have some lighting issues that I need to attend to.”

“Are you sure?” Savannah arched a brow in her brother’s direction.

“Max, I would be honored if you’d join us.”

The disappointment in Treat’s expression was palpable. She was this close to changing her mind. Every bit of her—especially those naughty parts that she was trying so hard to ignore—screamed, Yes! Yes! Go! But Max was too confused by his showing up and his apology to think straight. “I’m sorry, but I really can’t.”

Treat took her hand and brought it to his lips. She closed her eyes as his lips warmed her skin, bringing another rush of emotions.

“May I call you?” Treat asked again.

Still lost in that single kiss, thinking about what she’d like him to kiss next, Max had to shake her head to pull herself back to the conversation. She tapped her earpiece, hoping to pass off her zoning out as a technical issue. She was acting like those brainless bimbos she hated. Max couldn’t believe Treat was laying it on so thick in front of his sister, but maybe Savannah was used to seeing this side of him. He was a billionaire who owned properties all over the world. He probably treated all single women this way.

If she believed that, why was she tearing a piece of paper from her planner and writing her phone number on it? And why was she staring at his butt as he walked away, hoping he’d call?



I’m in so much trouble.

Don’t miss the excerpt and enter to win a signed set of Delicious Love books and nine will win eARCS of DANGEROUSLY DELICIOUS





Book Description:

Marco Thorne was hired by Club Wilde’s owner to open up the newest, most outrageous venue yet. He is absolutely certain that he can handle all the competition Las Vegas has to offer until his overbearing boss contracts with Lions and Tigers and More sanctuary to have live exotic animals present in the jungle-themed club. Still, he has no choice but to go along with his boss’s idiotic scheme, even if he thinks it’s the worst idea he’s ever heard.

Dr. Sage DeSantis’s entire life is devoted to keeping the animals under her care in the sanctuary healthy and happy. After the sanctuary’s owner announces that he’s renting out some of Sage’s babies to Club Wilde, she’s sickened that they will once again be exploited.

When Marco and Sage meet, the chemistry between them nearly knocks them off their feet. Although they both have experiences in their past that make them leery of love, and Sage is determined to guard her heart, Marco is all in. But will Marco be able to convince Sage to give them a chance?




DANGEROUSLY DELICIOUS Excerpt 
Copyright © 2018 Denise Swanson 

“Marco Thorne?” The words came out breathy and Sage filled her lungs. Finally, she exhaled and asked, “Are you Nico’s brother?” 

“Yes, I am.” Marco’s tone was suddenly guarded. “Do you know my brother?” 

“Only through his wife.” Sage realized that Marco’s hand was still extended and she hastily shook it. “Deanna is my best friend.” 

“You’re Sage?” Marco asked. “I don’t think I ever heard your last name.” 

“Small world.” Sage smiled. 

Maybe this wouldn’t be as bad as she feared. Surely, Nico’s brother would be reasonable. Maybe she could even convince him that having wild animals in a crowded nightclub was a bad idea. 

Marco slowly released her fingers and they stood staring at each other. Sage wasn’t sure how long they stood there before Marco cleared his throat. 

“Would you like a drink before we get started?” He gestured to the bamboo bar. “Water, soda, maybe something a little stronger?” 

Sage’s mouth was dry—probably from hanging open as she gazed at the Greek god in front of her—and she said, “I’ll take a Diet Coke if you have it.” 

“Coming right up.” Marco walked over, stepped behind the bar, and grabbed a glass. After filling it with ice, he held it under the dispenser. “So how long have you and Deanna been friends?” 

“Since our freshman year in college.” Sage nodded her thanks when he leaned over the bar and handed her the soda. Did you attend their wedding? I couldn’t believe they couldn’t wait a couple of days for me to fly from here to Chicago.” 

“Yeah.” Marco grabbed a bottle of water for himself and twisted off the cap. “There wasn’t much to see. They stood in front of the judge, he said a few words, and that was it.” Marco lifted the Dasani to his mouth. “There wasn’t any of the usual shit. Definitely not worth the airfare.” 

“I’m an only child.” Sage stared into her glass of soda. “So it would have been nice to see my best friend get her happily ever after.” 

“My mother has been planning a huge surprise reception with all the trimmings for their one-year anniversary. Now that the happy couple is spending a month here instead of just a week, Mom is moving the reception to the big LV. ” Marco moved closer to Sage. “I’ll make sure that you’re there for that.” 

“Actually, I’ve already received an invitation,” Sage said. “And I can’t wait.” 

“Good.” He brushed his thumb along her jaw. “That’s good.” 

Sage shivered. Something swirled around her and it felt like the air after a lightning storm—fresh, but with a hint of lingering danger. Her heart thudded against her chest, tension winding tighter and tighter as Marco’s thumb seemed to brand her skin. Her girly bits stirred in response and hormones she thought were in deep hibernation had her body going places that terrified her. 

Her reaction to his barely there caress must have shown on her face, because a flagrantly sexy, oh-so-smug expression gleamed hungrily in Marco’s molten gold eyes. He put his water bottle down on the bar and brought his other hand up to cup her cheek. 

His lips hovered a millimeter above hers and Sage couldn’t believe she wanted him to close the gap. They’d only known each other for about ten minutes. There was no way she should be thinking about kissing him.

Book Description:

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.





FEELS 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 fuck 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 fuck 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 shit 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.”

With his sights sent on a relic the Dragon Kings need to battle an ancient foe, he won’t let anything stand in his way – especially not the beautiful owner. Alexandra is smart and cautious. Yet the attraction between them is impossible to deny – or ignore. But is it a road Dorian dares to travel down again? With her vast family fortune, Alexandra Sheridan is never without suitors. No one is more surprised than she when the charming, devilish Scotsman snags her attention. But the secrets Dorian holds is like a wall between them until one fateful night when he shares everything.

My Review:

You guys know that I love me some Dragon Kings and this 1,001 Dark Nights Dragon King Novella did not change that at all.  I loved meeting a new King and learning his story.  I could have totally done full length book for Dorian but Donna pulled off his story seamlessly even in the shortened format.  As always you can jump right in any where with a 1001 Dark Nights Novella and not feel like you are completely in the dark.  I will say that with the number of books that have come before this one in this series there is a lot of history at play but instead of feeling lost this book will just make you want to go back and start from the beginning so you can get to know all these Kings and  their histories!  

I am particularly in love with this story because it is clear we are getting to a point where Rhi's elusive Dragon King is going to be revealed and I honestly don't know if Donna is just playing with my feelings and twisting my heart up in knots just to yell "Gotcha!" when that book finally comes out or if she is well and truly leading to the one King I have fallen in and out of love with over and over, have wanted it to be him and wanted it to be the farthest thing from him every other book.  We are getting there, and our answer is coming and I honestly can't wait.

Dorian and Alex's love is fast paced. I wouldn't call it Insta, but this is a novella so things do happen at a clipped pace.  It is hot, steamy, and oh so emotional.  I love both of these characters equally and they make a great addition to the storyline.  

Grab this book up whether you are a long time Dragon King reader or if this is your first experience.  I can promise you it will be an experience well worth taking!  

~ HAPPY READING ~
