Drama. Lies. Sex.

Welcome to Palm South University.

The weather isn’t the only thing heating up in South Florida. At a school where fraternities and sororities don’t exactly play by the rules, relationships are bound to be tested. Parties and sex are definitely key ingredients in the Palm South recipe, but what happens when family issues, secret lives, and unrequited love get tossed in the mix?

Follow Cassie, Bear, Jess, Skyler, Erin, Ashlei, and Adam as they tackle college at a small, private beach town university. Written in television drama form, each episode of this serial will pull you deeper and deeper into the world of PSU.

Where the sun is hot and the clothes are scarce, anything can happen.

My Review:

4 Stars!

What a great college series! I am ashamed to say I had no idea this even existed, but I am glad I found it. Fun characters, a whole lot of drama, secrets, lies and all the makings of a perfect new adult romantic drama! I was able to read the first two seasons, so I had a good grasp of the characters and their personalities and found myself really invested in their outcomes. I do recommend reading the previous books first, but you don’t have to. I am definitely looking forward to more!

 

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

About the Book

BecauseofLila_Amazon_iBooksPrim, proper, classic good girl, and her least favorite label – icy.

Lila Kate Carter has heard them all. The last one, being the newest. She is not icy. She just doesn’t care for Cruz Kerrington and his spoiled, selfish, careless ways. That doesn’t make her icy, that makes him a jerk!

Tired of being labeled and doing what is expected of her, Lila Kate leaves Rosemary Beach, Florida ready for an adventure. Wanting to recreate herself, find a new path, and become something more.

Eli Hardy is tired of women who always act the same, do the same thing and expect the same thing. He’s ready to swear off women until he can get the rest of his life together.

Two weeks into his no-women-rule he meets Lila. She’s so damn sweet and polite. Like she walked right out of an etiquette book. But he’d already been drunk before she walked in so there was a good chance she might not be as stunning and perfect as he thinks. He’s just too drunk to worry about that.

The next morning, he swears he can still smell her on his skin. He just can’t remember why or what happened after that third dance.

Their worlds are about to collide, and so are the secrets and lies.

Book Blitz: More Than This by Clare James

More Than This
Clare James
(Impossible Love, #2)
Publication date: November 25th 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

MORE THAN THIS is a hot and hilarious STAND-ALONE romance from Clare James’ best-selling Impossible Love Series!

It’s all fun and games…until you live together.

I bite my lip when Foster’s tattoo peeks out from under his shirt. Yes, it is completely cliché. And yes, I do look like some kind of B-list p*rn star lusting after this man and going into heat every time he shows a little skin. But seriously, he is that delicious–which is why I occasionally succumb to his advances.

He’s also one of my best friends, so I really need to get it together.

I’m not the only one. Foster is a mess, trying to figure out his own crap–usually over whiskey Cokes–and it’s getting old. That’s why I’ve finally made a vow to forget him and find something real. But when I’m hurt in a ridiculous bar fight and left with broken bones, I have no choice but to let him move in and help me out.

It’s a roommates only situation. Really…well, until it isn’t.

*MORE THAN THIS is a full-length, stand-alone romantic comedy that can be read on its own, or as part of the Impossible Love Series.*

Before You Go – [Noah and Tabby]
More Than This – [Foster and Jules]

EXCERPT:

If a picture is worth a thousand words, I’m pretty sure this one includes every dirty term in the dictionary… and even some that aren’t. Because…whoa!

But it’s not so much a picture that’s currently conjuring up these filthy words as it is a live image, complete with a real-life man. And as I stand in the room, like I have so many times, I assess him as I would any subject—taking in the light and the lines, the colors and composition. My eyes are the lens and I zoom-in to capture every detail. I’ve spent so much time behind a camera that it’s become second nature.

In the case of Foster Sutton, it’s become my favorite pastime.

His tattoo peeks out from under his shirt, and I bite my lip. Yes, it is completely cliché. And yes, I do look like some kind of B-list porn star lusting after this man and going into heat every time he shows a little skin. But seriously, he is that beautiful.

Where’s a camera when a girl needs one?

I want to capture all that deep black ink that spreads across Foster’s toffee-colored skin along his lower left ab. Not that I haven’t seen it before. I have. Actually, I was with him when he got the tribal eagle tattoo. It’s a symbol to remember his dad, though he’s never really embraced his family history, not even after his dad died in junior high. But he’s trying to figure it out now. He’s trying to figure out a lot of things—usually over whiskey Cokes.

I’ve been up close and personal with his markings of guilt on a few occasions. And guilt is precisely what I’m feeling now as I stand here drooling over Foster’s body. It’s more than a bit shady—gawking at him while he’s passed out—but I can’t tear my eyes away.

His shirt is riding up and the fly of his jeans is open, telling me he tried to take off his clothes before passing out. But it looks like the booze won this time. He sent me a text from the bar about an hour ago, incoherent and needy—his telltale signs of being inebriated. Of course, I rushed right over.

When duty calls…

Foster sighs and his eyes flutter open.

“Come here, baby,” he says, reaching for me from a pool of drunkenness.

And I want to, believe me. Oh how I want to, but we’ve played this game too many times before, and what a girl needs is her dignity—not a purse holding her panties while she does the bull-legged walk of shame home in broad daylight.

I skillfully avoid Foster’s grasping arms, knowing I just have to keep away from him for the next few minutes. He always gets a second wind right before passing out completely. Trouble is, I don’t want to stay away. I want to climb in bed and lick him like a Popsicle.

Dignity is overrated anyway.

I want to take away his pain—at least for a little while. But I’ve been trying to do that for the last two years and nothing changes. We never move forward. We never get back to that place we were before the accident. Before everything went to hell.

It’s that thought that helps me pull away from those delectable abs to get the supplies I need. But when I move down the hallway, I swear Foster begins hissing at the sunray beating down on him. I can’t blame him. The afternoon light is annoying me as well. It’s glaring through the apartment as if to say, “Look around, woman! Look at this mess of an apartment, this mess of a man. What are you doing here?”

After I get what I need from the hall closet, I tell the bitchy sunbeam to zip her lip and then close the blinds in the tiny studio. Foster mumbles what I assume is a thank you from the futon. The sorry sack didn’t even wait until nighttime to hit the bar today, and I wonder what set him off because it’s been months since I’ve had to play Nurse Jackie.

I grab his blanket from the floor and drape it over his body, covering that damn tattoo.

There, that’s a little better.

Foster’s place is a dump, but it’s close to campus and it’s all he could afford after our friend, Noah, finally kicked him out last year. I don’t blame Noah in the least, Foster’s act is getting old. Even for me.

“Here, take this,” I tell him from the side of the futon, holding out three Advil and a glass of water.

Foster takes the water glass from my hand and sets it on the bedside table, but instead of downing the Advil like a good patient, he grabs both my wrists and yanks me into the bed with him. The pills fly through the air and he has me pinned under his body in less than a second.

“I’d rather take you,” he growls in my ear, shaking me to my core…in the very best way.

Holy hell.

Title: Wrecked
Author: Jeannine Colette
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: June 21, 2017
Blurb
Take one sexy bartender. Add a badass cop. A splash of
sweet, that’s me. One sour, that’s him… and serve over ice.

That’s how you’ll get to my current situation.
You know the girl – the one who commands the scene, bottle of liquor in hand,
pouring liquid fire into the willing throats of patrons as they let loose at
the local bar?

That’s me.

I may be known as the town party girl, but in reality I’m this close to my
dream of opening my own bar – McConaugheys. Yes, it will be named after the
acclaimed actor. What can I say? I’m a sucker for that sexy Texan.

Everything was going as planned until the night I had a few drinks and accepted
a ride home from a friend. A misunderstanding leads to an arrest, and now I’m
at the mercy of the one man I can’t stand, and trust me, the feeling is
definitely mutual.

Adam Reingold is six-feet-tall and built like a stallion — the man is the
epitome of male. He also happens to be the town narc and hates my guts. There’s
a story to our past and it’s not a pretty one.

So, now, here I am, chained to him for the summer like a hardened criminal,
doing whatever he tells me to do. Problem is, I can’t help but look at him when
he’s not watching and wonder what our future could be like if things were
different.

There are so many reasons why he’s all wrong for me. Even more reasons why I
need to stay away from him.

It’s a cocktail of trouble. Best served shaken, not stirred.

Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 27, 2017

There were some problems Skee-Ball and beer just couldn’t
fix.
Being with Camden was everything Riley ever wanted… and so
much more. More stress, more money, more family, more obstacles, but also more
love. Oh, and more sex. That too. No one had ever made Riley feel so needed,
and perhaps that was the problem. Now facing a new job, new responsibilities,
and a new life with her fiancé, Riley quickly begins to feel overwhelmed. The
only thing she isn’t unsure of is her love for Camden. But love can only take
her so far.
Camden wants to make everything easy for Riley. He wants to
fix all her problems, take away all her stress, make life easy for her, and
give her all the orgasms, but he’s quickly realizing that Riley’s biggest
issues—the ones that make her doubt herself—can’t be fixed by anyone but her.
That doesn’t stop him from trying. She’s an independent woman, but that doesn’t
mean he can’t spoil her every now and then.
Riley’s going to have to accept that Camden loves making her
life easier, and Camden’s going to have to realize that she only gives in
because she loves him. But when the past comes back to disrupt Riley’s future,
Camden will have no choice but to let his fierce partner and fiancée handle her
shit.
Will Riley be able to let the past go? Will Camden’s need to
take care of Riley push her too far?
Will their love for each other be enough?

As the Dating Guy on L.A.’s top morning show, I give the
single guy’s perspective on dating, love, and sex—and I give great advice. Everyone’s
hooking up…well, except for me. Sure, I can get any woman I want, but I’ve got
a “no relationship” clause in my contract and the only woman I want has
“relationship” written all over her. Probably stamped on her ass, too. And
wouldn’t I like to confirm that.
Unfortunately, she wants nothing to do with me. At all.
Something about the next Ice Age might have even come up in her rebuttal.
Adorable. Because she’s determined to ignore what one simple kiss proved: she
wants me as badly as I want her.
Everything in me is screaming to go after her, but I’ve got
a secret that I’m fairly certain will end up with her roasting my nuts over an
open fire. So, job on the line? Check. Nuts on the line? Check. Can’t get her
out of my head? Nail…meet coffin. But what a way to go…
