Pretty Dead Girls

Blog Tour ~ 4 Stars for Something So Irresistible by Natasha Madison!

 

 

 

 

Max Horton

They call me an outcast like it’s a bad thing.

An asshole byproduct of a shitty upbringing. I don’t care about anything except myself and my little sister.

I will always protect what’s mine.

With one year left on my hockey contract I’m keeping my head down and my eyes on the goal.

A collision, with her, changes my entire existence.

Allison Grant

Never fall in love with a sports star. That’s what my stepfather always said. He told me athletes are complicated and moody—that the higher their paycheck, the lower their morals.

As public relations for the New York Stingers I know exactly what he means, but I can’t seem to say no to a friendship with one beautiful, damaged man.

What started out as hate turned into something else.

We tried to stay away, to keep our distance, but the pull was too strong.

Something forbidden turned into something so irresistible.

 

My Review

4 Stars!

This my favorite of all of Natasha Madison’s series and I have been patiently waiting for Max and Allison’s story.

Max had quite the rep in the first two books in the series. He was King Douche. But, I knew he had redemption in him. He is the epitome of not judging a book by its cover. There were times throughout the book that I just wanted to shake him and tell him to nut up and quit making mistakes, but he made up for all of it and then some!

Allison is a great character! She is all grown up now and forges her own path despite her overprotective father. She doesn’t let being a woman in a man’s world get in her way. I love that about her! Despite being all kick butt, she was vulnerable and when she was with Max she kind of blossomed.

The prologue broke my heart a little because of how it turned out, but I liked that Madison started the book out the way she did. From there, the story slows way down and the simmer of slow burn proceeds. This was the perfect way to tell Allison and Max’s story.

I really enjoyed this one!

“You may now kiss the bride,” Judge Reynolds says right before Max grabs my face in both of his hands.

“I love you,” he whispers, then his lips land on mine, gently and full of love.

My hands go to his waist as I close my eyes and take in the safety of my husband.

“I love you with everything that I am,” he murmurs against my lips. I smile and look into his crystal blue eyes.

“I love you more,” I say. He lets go of my face and we shake the judge’s hand. He grabs my hand and we walk out of his chambers while my chiffon train trails us.

Max proposed to me three hours ago. He got down on one knee and vowed to love me and only me till his last dying breath while I stood there in the middle of the shark reef in the Mandalay Bay. It took me two seconds before I nodded and got down on my knees with him, buried my face into his chest, and cried from happiness. I was completely and utterly in love with him. And not one person in my family knew. Well, none of the men knew. But this isn’t about them. This is about me, about Max, about how he took my heart into his hand and treated it like delicate crystal, making sure he bubble wrapped it to keep it safe.

Now here I am, watching my husband dressed in a black tux hold my hand and me in my two-piece lace dress. It is beaded from my collar all the way down. It ties around my neck but leaves my back bare. My arms are also bare. A gold belt ties the second part of the dress, floor-length split chiffon. My legs slip out while I walk, showing off my something blue, which is my Carrie Bradshaw Blue Manolo Blahnik.

As soon as the door to the chapel opens, my chiffon dress blows up almost like Marilyn Monroe’s, the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas almost non-existent since we are off the Strip. Someone in the distance must have snapped a picture because his flash went off.

“I think someone just took a picture of us,” I tell him while we make our way to the car that is waiting for us.

“Angel, it’s Vegas, everyone is taking pictures.” He waits for me to get in before climbing in after me. “So, my wife, where do you want to go?” Max turns to me and smiles while his thumb rubs the hand he’s holding.

“Back to our room.” I look at our hands. “I want to go back with you and lock the door and just be with my husband.”

“I was hoping you’d say that.” He pulls me to him, his arm going around my shoulder, and I fit perfectly in the crook of his arm.

We watch the city lights come into focus again once we get on the Strip. Walking through the lobby, I hold on to my husband’s hand, watching his ring glisten in the light. Max unlocks the door for us. Walking in, I head for the living room that is now turned into what looks like a small reception. Gone are the couches, and in their place is a cast iron square with blush pink roses wrapped all around it. Tea lights make it across. All the furniture is gone. The only thing in this room are blush roses, which are my favorites.

“This place looks like a fairy tale.”

Max walks to me, holding a bouquet in his hands. “For you.” He hands it to me as our song “Dive” comes on.

“Dance with me?” I ask him as I walk to him.

“Every single day of my life.” He wraps an arm around my waist. I hold the bouquet around his shoulders and we hold our free hands to his chest.

He takes his phone out and raises his hand, snapping a picture of us. I’m looking at the camera while he looks at me. “Stunning,” he says quietly as his cell phone rings. “Angel, don’t freak out.” His voice is curt, tight.

I don’t have to time to say anything because my phone buzzes with a text from Matthew.

Allison, when you get this you better call me.

“Oh my God.” I look at him. “What did we just do?” He looks at me shocked, steps back, and away from me.

“Max.” I reach out to him while he dodges me.

“A mistake.”

I don’t know if he’s asking or telling. My heart hurts as his eyes go dark. He darts out of the room and the front door slams after him. As I stand here in my wedding dress, a tear rolls down my face, and I look down and see my glistening wedding band.


 

 

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

✮✮✮ MOST LIKELY TO SCORE is here! Grab your copy today! ✮✮✮

A sexy new forbidden romance from #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely…

It should have been a simple play…

She needed a football player to step up and be the star for a charity calendar. I needed a sharp and savvy publicist to manage a brand-new sponsorship deal. I scratched her back. She scratched mine. And oh hell, did Jillian ever drag her nails down my back on one hell of a hot night. Okay fine, it was several hot nights on the road.

Now we’re back in town and it’s time to set the play clock back to when we were simply player and publicist. Given the way the last few years have gone, I can’t risk this deal, so it’s hands off for us once again. Trouble is, I want more than than just another night with her.

What’s a guy to do when he’s always been most likely to score, but the woman he’s falling for is just out of bounds?

I don’t date players.
And I definitely don’t sleep with players.
And I absolutely don’t fall for a certain player when I get to know him and learn he’s more than just sexy — he’s clever, funny and has a heart as big as his . .. well, you get my drift.

But my job is at stake, and I can’t afford to lose that as well as my heart. The problem is, I think I’ve already lost that game.

What’s a girl to do when the clock is running out, but the man she’s falling for is off limits?

My Review

4.5 Stars!!

EVERY SINGLE TIME I crack open a new book by Lauren Blakely, I find another book boyfriend to add to my list. BUT, I gotta tell you, Jones just took the throne. He just strolled right in and knocked Tyler Nichols (from The Hot One) right off the seat he has been holding for nearly a year. THAT’s how much I loved Jones!

Jones Beckett is a football player with a bad reputation off the field. Jillian is the PR person hired to rehab his rep. They flirt and they banter, but, difficult as it may be, they keep things professional. Until they don’t. This one was so great! Jones was flirty, sweet, sexy and quite the dirty-talker. Jillian was cute, smart, funny and a hardworker. They want to give in, but they both have so much to lose. Will they decide it’s worth it?

Another amazing, sexy, fun read from the fabulous Lauren Blakely!

MOST LIKELY TO SCORE is a brand new standalone sports romance written in dual POV!

Excerpt

~Jillian~
He runs his hand through his hair, flashing a lopsided grin then a wink. “Sorry. I meant are you my personal PR person now?”
That word zips through me like an electric charge. A light gust of wind blows my hair across my cheeks, and I tuck the strands behind my ear, grateful for the temporary distraction courtesy of San Francisco’s windy morning. I shiver lightly from the chill. “Yes, that seems to be the case, and I’m happy to do it.”
He cocks his head to the side. “Are you like my babysitter?”
My jaw drops. “What? No. No. No. That’s ridiculous. I’m not a babysitter.”
He arches a brow. “A nanny?”
I smirk. “Jones, I would hope you’ve outgrown the need for a nanny.”
“That’s up for debate, it seems. But maybe you’re my governess?”
I roll my eyes and gesture to the car at the curb. “I’m not your nanny, I’m not your babysitter, and I’m definitely not your governess. I’m here to help you create the best image possible. I can market, publicize, and help you manage putting the best foot forward,” I say, my tone earnest, my meaning important. “I believe in what I do. I know you’re a great guy, and I want the world to see what I’ve seen in the last couple days.”
“Yeah?”
“That’s why I said yes when Ford asked for my help. I’m not interested in being anyone’s au pair. I am very interested, though, in showing this city what good things our team does on and off the field. Including you.” I take a breath and try to read him. To understand what’s beneath the teasing. I think I know what it is. He wants a choice. “But if you don’t want me to help out, I’ll step back and we can stick to just the calendar. I told Ford I’d do this for your new deal, because I want to be the one to help you if you need it, and it’s the kind of help I can give. Since you signed the contract yesterday, and the folks at Paleo Pet are local, they want to stop by the shoot later today. Take some pictures, chat, and so on. I’m happy to be there by your side the whole time, making sure you’re comfortable with everything, and you’re represented in the best way possible. But if those aren’t your wishes, and if it isn’t what you need, then I’ll be hands-off. I hold up my palms as if I’m backing away.
In a heartbeat, he grabs my wrists. Possessively. A thrill rushes through me, like a drumbeat pulsing in my veins. I look away from him briefly. I can’t make eye contact when he does this, when he touches me. If I do, he’ll know. He’ll realize I’m just like all the other women who fling panties at him, who chase him down in bars, who line up at the players’ entrance to become his football floozy for the night. I won’t ever be someone’s football floozy, and I can’t let him see for a second that I want some of the same things those other women want from him. Him.
“Don’t be hands-off,” he says, his voice soft.

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don’t let the fact that I’m the leading pick in the MOST LIKELY TO SCORE charity auction fool you. These days, I’m only a player on the field. I’ve kept my pants zipped all season long — and it has been long — because nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the team owner’s recently-widowed and handsy-as-hell sister who’s dead set on winning more than a date with me.

Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.

She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me we have to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract.
Violet takes one for the team and pretends to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport, and I want it to go into overtime. The problem is — I’ve been riding the bench for years.

How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?

MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY is a brand new standalone sports romance written in the guy’s POV!

My Review of The End Zone by LJ Shen

4.5 Stars!

A sweet friends to lovers romance. Sage and Jolie are so cute. Friends since they were ten, they were pretty much inseparable since that time. They love each other, even if they don’t recognize it for what it is. Sage is a playboy, Jolie just sort of puts up with it. But, when Sage needs Jolie to step in as his fake girlfriend, they both start wondering if maybe this is more than fake.

I usually don’t like the fake girlfriend/boyfriend thing, but I love LJ Shen and I was excited to read this. Shen did not disappoint, but I do have to admit, Jolie wasn’t my favorite. Otherwise, I really enjoyed the story.

Emma Scott:

I write romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models. I love to write book lovers; those who have found refuge, companionship, and escape in books, much as we do in real life. I like realism, honesty, authenticity in storytelling. I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.

Meghan Quinn:

A BLONDE AT HEART

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Pretty Dead Girls

New Release ~ The One Night Stand by Elizabeth Hayley

TONS availnow

 

Gabriel Torres thought his life after Major League Baseball would be simple and quiet, or at least quieter. However, as he takes over running the exclusive Players Club, he finds himself continually embroiled in scandal and drama. Surely nothing, and no one could make his life any crazier…Right?

Rachel Adler is a blast from Gabe’s past who crashed back into his life with the finesse of a freight train. But she’s a welcome distraction. At least for a night.

Rachel has been working hard to become one of the top sports journalists in the country. She doesn’t have time for a long-term romance or irresistibly charming baseball players. A one-night-stand with the man who she knew would hit it out of the park was all she wanted.

But when she gets a tip that Gabe could have ties to one of the biggest sports stories in history, a story that could make her career, Rachel decides that maybe she has a little time for the sexy baseball player after all. As she gets in deeper with both her story and Gabe, Rachel begins to question who she is, what she wants, and what exactly she’s willing to sacrifice for her career.

Will the potential grand-slam romance be stopped short or will Rachel and Gabe be able to go the distance?

Elizabeth Hayley is actually “Elizabeth” and “Hayley,” two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands’ chagrin).

They live with their husbands and kids in a Philadelphia suburb. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.

Elizabeth Hayley’s writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: “I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind.”

Single dad and star defenseman Matt LaRue lives for his kids and hockey. He’s had one failed marriage and doesn’t have any interest in going through that hell again. As conservative as they come, he can’t comprehend his unexplainable attraction to a free-spirited female who changes hair color more often than his boys create new excuses to avoid doing their homework.

Violet Strider is fleeing the past. She has a new start, new identity, and is hiding a big secret. Matt and Vi are a classic case of opposites attract, but neither expects the attraction to extend beyond a few hot trysts, especially Vi. Only her heart isn’t listening, and her head is following her heart down a path of no return. As Vi grows closer to Matt and his boys, she fears her secret could rip them apart.

Relationships are built on trust, and Vi’s house of cards is about to take a tumble. Can Vi confront her past and finally put it behind her, while earning Matt’s forgiveness?

My Review

4 Stars!

Another sexy Sockeye falls in love!

Matt is straight-laced, a bit uptight and loves his boys and hockey in that order. He also has an undeniable attraction to the wild, sexy Vi. Vi is a free-spirit who makes no apologies for her deep attraction to the sexy hockey player, even if they hate each other. When they finally give in to their attraction and agree to a no-strings arrangement, they suddenly see more in each other.

I really enjoyed this book! I am a huge fan of this series in general, but Matt kind of stuck with me. He’s not a player like most of his teammates. He’s a father and his focus is on hockey and his boys. He had his heart broken by his ex-wife leaving him pretty closed off. Vi brought out the best in him. He loosened up and let go and he was sexy as all get out. I loved Vi. She was unabashed, unashamed and she did what she had to to survive in life. At first, she was afraid of those boys and they were a cute little handful, but it was sweet when they grew closer.

A great story line with a bit of mystery involved. Steamy sexy times. A hero you can’t help but love and a heroine who is perfectly flawed! A great read!!!

Hot New Release from Sawyer Bennett ~ 4.5 Stars for Van (Cold Fury #9)

Van (Cold Fury, Book #9)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: November 28, 2017

Synopsis:

Score one for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team as a stone-cold badass melts for a woman who makes his blood run hot.

As one of the league’s toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it’s the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as an A-hole is better than everyone knowing the truth. Van has spent his entire life running from a secret that’s kept him from getting involved in relationships—or accepting lucrative deals with East Coast teams. Then the Carolina Cold Fury makes him an offer he can’t refuse . . . and Van meets a woman he can’t resist.

Simone Fournier is the stubborn one in her family—and that’s saying something, considering her brothers are two of the Cold Fury’s biggest stars. Simone gets what she wants, and what she wants is Van. Still, there’s a part of him Simone can’t reach, no matter how hard she tries. In private, he’s all fire and passion. In public, he freezes her out. Van may want to push her away, but Simone won’t let him go that easily. Because this time, she’s playing for keeps.

Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

My Review

4.5 Stars!

Van will steal your heart with his grumpy ways and his heart of gold!

Van is complicated guy with a dark backstory. He’s a jerk. Standoffish. He’s sexy as sin! Lucas’s bold little sister, Simone, wants Van and she will do whatever it takes to get him.

I think this is one of the best books in this series. Sawyer Bennett went a little bit darker with this one, but balanced it out nicely with a sweet, slow-burning love story. Van is more intense than his previous hockey brothers but it works perfectly with his dark backstory. Where Van is dark night, Simone is the sunshine. She is persistent and yet patient with him. She stands by him when he needs her the most. The climax to the story was held off until hearly 90%. Normally, I don’t like that. However, here I think it worked nicely. It allowed the relationship between Van and Simone to move along at a perfect pace. If Bennett had rushed them together, it would not have been as good a book.

A little word of warning, if you have not read Lucas and you want to, you might want to read it first before starting Van. The story runs concurrenlty to Lucas’s story and there are some spoilers.

Another great edition to the Cold Fury series and a sexy, romantic read!

About the Author:

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.

Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.

PAPERBACK: http://amzn.to/2jxHgeE

This tight end is at the top of his game.

He’s good with his hands, even better with his sexy mouth, and the best at making me forget my own name. His—ahem—stats are perfect.

But I can’t fall for him.

He might be everything I want, all rolled into a glorious package of gridiron god, but there’s one teeny-tiny problem. The vile, loathsome team I’ve spent my entire life hating—my beloved school’s arch-rival?

This guy is their star player.

My Review

4 Stars!

This is one rivalary you want to be a part of!

Two people on opposite sides of a storied college football rivalry – the head cheerleader for Ohio State and the star tight end for Michigan – + sizzling chemistry = one amazing read! Jay is swoonworthy – he is funny, persistent and sexy as sin. Kayla is one of the best book characters I’ve ever read – she is loyal, sassy and this girl knows her football! A girl after my own heart.

The opening few chapters of the book had me cracking up. They are at the wedding of Kayla’s BFF to Jay’s BFF, but Jay and Kayla don’t know who the other is. Kayla has been banned by her BFF, the bride, from talking about sports, especially football, with any of the men at the wedding because Kayla eats, sleeps and breathes football and has made grown men cry. Seriously. Several chapters later, when Kayla finally figures out that Jay is the tight end for the hated Michigan, her reaction to him and the situation had me crying tears of laughter. I could go on, but that wouldn’t be fair to you. Suffice it to say, there are a lot of great moments in this book, but none more so than The Moment. That was sweet, sexy and oh, so satisfying!

Along with a great plot and great writing, Sloane has given us a H and h you can root for and secondary characters that are a little bit over the top, but pretty close to perfect!

A must read sports romance!

Cover Reveal ~ Drive by Jacob Chance

 

Title: Drive
Author: Jacob Chance
Genre: Sports Romance/New Adult Standalone
Cover Design: Sybil Wilson, PopKitty Design
Release Date: December 1, 2017

 

Blurb
Kissing a complete stranger shouldn’t be a life altering
experience, but with him it was. One look into his mischievous hazel eyes and
our lips were colliding without a second thought.
Now, months later, not only do I know his name, we’ve also
become friends. Good friends. The kind of friends that kiss and cuddle
together, all night long. The kind of friends that fantasize about being
horizontal or vertical…and very much naked.
I’d never been attracted to the football playing jocks, but
Nick’s different. When he’s not being a professional flirt, he’s undeniably
sweet and funny. For every excuse my mind comes up with to keep my distance, my
body finds two reasons to give him a chance.
Can he make the final drive into my heart or will I keep him
in the friend zone?
