Trailer
Excerpt

One hiccup. Two hiccups. A sniff.

With my ear pressed against her door, I can hear every sound, every breath.

I can’t stop biting my lip as I listen, wondering what she’s doing right now. Something muffles her cries, a pillow perhaps. I imagine her hugging it tight as she curls up on my guest bed … her bed. In her room. The room I gave her as a prison to stay in.

I shouldn’t be here.

But I can’t stay away either. Wherever she is, I’ve always wanted to follow. It’s what drove me to her in the first place, what made me take her away from her father.

She’s right. I’m a cruel monster who only cares about his own desires. But a part of me, somewhere deep inside, wishes for something else too. Something … better. Something real.

But we can’t have that. We never could and never will.

Not when she’s my hostage, someone I keep in a soft and velvety cage for my selfish needs.

My hand lingers on the wood, nails digging in as my heart sinks into my shoes. I’m fighting the urge to unlock the door and go inside.

I have no place in her room. Not after taunting her to the brink of despair. Did I go too far? The knife and fork were only a game—a way to toy with her emotions—but the sight of her obeying me filled me with such power that it consumed me and made me lash out. I wanted her to eat that cake until she was full and then sink to her knees and take my cock as a second dessert.

But that was a filthy dream of mine. Nothing more.

I should’ve known my fantasies would interfere with my ability to reason. I couldn’t keep my cool and made her face the rage inside me. Of course, she’s upset.

I close my eyes and let out a sigh. I don’t want to be this mean. I want to make her happy.

But I want her to suffer too, and those wishes clash like hell. I want her to know what it did to me when she chose to deny me and chose her goddamn father over me. That fucking arrogant son of a bitch who didn’t even love her … who ruined her for me.

Who worked my father to death … literally.

Taking in a deep breath, I lean away from the door and stare at it for a few seconds. Then I turn around and walk away. But there will come a time when I won’t be able to keep that door locked. When I won’t stop myself from touching her … from kissing her. And that day will be here sooner than she thinks.

Blog Tour: The Demon Maker By Jonathon McElhaney & Virginia Johnson


Title: The Demon Maker 
Authors: Jonathon McElhaney & Virginia Johnson 
Genre: Paranormal Romance 




When Alex moved to the big city, she was expecting a lot of things that she couldn’t find in the country: big lights, concerts, maybe a little dancing, a few cute boys, and her best friend Holly. What she got was something much bigger, as she meets an alluring and mysterious stranger at a bar who pulls her into a world much bigger than even New York City. 
She is now stuck in a fight for the fate of the universe and she could be the deciding factor. 

He is The Demon Maker, a pivotal soldier in this ancient war, a man with a constantly changing face who might be good and might be evil. 

A Demon Maker. A country girl. An ancient battle between good and evil.
When the battle lines are drawn, Alex and The Demon Maker must be on the same side of fate or the universe will be doomed to an eternity of darkness and evil. The question is, who is truly evil and where is the demonic line drawn?



Jonathon Mcelhaney is a US Army veteran, having served in the logistics division during the Afghanistan campaign. He is the author of the dark fantasy novel, THE SET STEALER, published by New Traditions Publishing and three amazing self-published short stories. He is a loving husband to his beautiful wife and two amazing kids.


A love for reading and writing is a new concept for Virginia.
Before the Twilight rave and a need to know the ending after Eclipse was released in theatres, Virginia preferred to watch the movie or convince a friend to read the book for her.

Needing to know the story of a random homeless man that she encountered on a freeway exit ramp, was the only reason she began writing in the first place.
Soulless Nights spawned from the unknown story and a dare from her friends.

She has had the pleasure of working with some of her favorite authors.
Street teams and beta reading were what led her to the world of writing.

She has released Soulless Nights, Vindicate, Expiate, Cessation, Always Never, Secondary Silence, Secondary Disaster, The Xmas Effect, The Blood of Abigail, Correcting Code 1.1, and the Bad Words Made Funny Series!

She recently released Night Tales Vol 1. Which consists of 3 short stories featured in anthologies.

She also has co-written 3 books: Seraphines (Julia Clare) , Bound by an Echo (Julia Clare) & Kepler: Humanity’s Ark ( Kyle Perkins )

She is currently working on Correcting Code novella’s



Blog Tour/ ARC Review: Dirty Pool By Bethany-Kris!

DIRTY POOL

by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: May 6, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance, Standalone

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS

To get what he wants, he’ll have to play a game of dirty pool.

Michel Marcello never wanted to be a mafioso like every other man in his family—he wanted to be more. That doesn’t mean he’s unfamiliar with the life, or that he can’t hold his own against other made men.

They forgot where he came from …

His chance encounter with the fiery and beautiful daughter of Detroit’s most notorious Irish mob boss stokes flames beyond the ones that ignite between Michel and Gabbie Casey. Rivals shouldn’t mix, but these opposites have never been more attracted, either.

The lines between family loyalty, their duties, and responsibility begin to blur.

Love ruins all.

But these two aren’t the only ones playing this game, and it just became far more dangerous to get out alive.

*

Dirty Pool is a standalone romantic suspense.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed reading Michel and Gabbie’s story! They just wanted to be together no matter what was going on with their families and I loved it. Gabbie was a spitfire and I just adored her! Michel may not be a made man but he is just as cunning as they are and I was in awe of the chaos he was capable of. I definitely recommend this if you enjoy some forbidden love!

Touched by the Devil

by Joanna Blake
Publication Date: May 3, 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon

It takes a lot to rile me up. From the moment I meet the young widow, she gets under my skin. I want to kiss her. But only to shut her up.

My name is Maccabe Donahue, but everyone calls me Mac. Just out of the Navy and current Devil’s Rider, the inner circle of the Sons of Satan motorcycle club, I’m known for keeping a cool head. But all that changes when I take the job of managing the build of a new development outside of town.

A development that is right next door to a tiny cottage, formerly in the middle of nowhere. That’s where Suzanna comes in.

The woman is going to drive me insane.

She’s the best-looking woman I’ve ever seen. Long legs and long, dark hair, with big green eyes and a curvaceous figure that defies gravity. She’s all fire and vinegar wrapped up in a package that makes my hands itch to touch her.

When those sparks combust, it sets off a chain reaction neither of us saw coming.

Blog Tour: Pretty Reckless By L.J. Shen

PR - BT banner.jpg

Pretty Reckless, an all-new standalone high school, bully romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is available now!

LJSPrettyRecklessBookCover6x9_MEDIUM

We were supposed to be best friends

But turned out to be worst enemies…

Penn

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.

I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart is completely iced.

I took her first kiss.

She took the only thing I loved.

I was poor.

She was rich.

The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.

Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.

Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.

Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.

There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.

Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.

Daria

Everyone loves a good-old, unapologetic punk.

But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.

The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.

In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.

Four years ago, he asked me to save all of my firsts for him.

Now he lives across the hall, and there’s nothing I want more than to be his last everything.

His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.

Now? Now he is making me pay.

Excerpt:

“I don’t want you transferring into my school,” I hiss out. Melody would gladly file a transfer request, and Principal Prichard would salivate over the chance to snatch him up for our football team.

“That won’t be a problem. You guys suck so much ass, you have shit-breath.”

“Still smells better than poverty. You’re poor, right? Your sister was just bullshitting about being rich.”

When someone hits me with a stick, I run over them with a tank. I’m so mean to him I want to throw up. I hate this part of being me. The striking harder at all costs part.

“Just to make things clear.” I put the brush down, batting my lashes. “You’re not my step-sibling, foster brother, or a part of the family. You’re a stray dog. Last of the litter, most unlikely to be adopted, and a charity case.”

Penn takes a step toward me, and my heart is fighting its way out of my ribcage. The closer he gets, the more I realize that my heart might succeed. Penn’s eyes remind me of a snake’s. Mesmerizing, but inhuman altogether. They weren’t like that before.

His scent messes with my head. I want to reach out and caress his face. Kiss his wounds better. Beg for forgiveness. Curse him. Push him away. Cry on his shoulder for what we’ve done. For how it ended. For what we became afterwards, because I’m full of crap and he is totally empty.

We ruined ourselves the day of our first kiss.

Penn looks down at me. Time stops. It feels like the world is losing gravity, falling into a bottomless depth in space when he clasps my chin with his thumb and finger, lifting my head up. I can’t breathe. I’m not sure I want to, either. My towel drops to the floor with a thud, even though I secured it over my chest. I realize that he tugged at it intentionally. I’m naked. My body, my soul, my heart. All my walls are down. Somewhere in my head, a red alarm blasts and my inhibitions are getting armed, ready to fight back. I’m trying to decode his expression. He is amused, irritated, and…playful? The mixture of emotions doesn’t make any sense.

“Mess with me, Followhill, and I will ruin you.”

“Not if I ruin you first.”

Blog Tour: The Show Must Go On by Kate Karyus Quinn



Title: The Show Must Go On 
Author: Kate Karyus Quinn 
Genre: Romantic Comedy 


Add to your TBR – Goodreads 










A freak accident changed Jenna’s whole life. Now she must find the courage to return home, face the music, and possibly get a second chance at love.
Everyone has that one ex they can’t forget. But for Jenna it’s a little different. Her ex, Danny, has been in a coma for twelve years. Now he’s awake—and asking for her. The only problem is, the thought of seeing Danny again scares her silly.
On top of that, Jenna’s the star of Annie meets Fifty Shades of Grey, an experimental theater production that’s even worse than it sounds.
Then Danny’s younger brother, Will, arrives on Jenna’s doorstep. Once an awkward nerd, he’s now a handsome hunky nerd…who insists on escorting her back to Buffalo, New York—and Danny’s bedside. As their past history simmers between them, Jenna struggles to ignore the sparks of a renewed attraction.
Between her crazy family, ex-comatose ex-boyfriend, his insanely hot brother, and a rapidly approaching opening night, Jenna will finally learn that “the show must go on” is a phrase that applies to more than just the stage.
For fans of Sally Thorne, Penny Reid, and Lucy Parker, this hilarious romantic comedy will give you all the feels.







Kate Karyus Quinn is an avid reader and menthol chapstick addict with a BFA in theater and an MFA in film and television production. She lives in Buffalo, New York with her husband, three children, and one enormous dog. She has three previous young adult novels published with HarperTeen: Another Little Piece, (Don’t You) Forget About Me, and Down With The Shine.
