Excerpt/Teaser




After checking into the hotel, I decided to go all out for this weekend. My friends will be in tomorrow for the wedding. Tonight, I have the penthouse suite all to myself. Well, not myself. I walk toward Lennox, he was waiting in the bar area. That rugged smirk appears across his face. I approach him, “I’m on the very top floor. 1305. Let’s go.”


I grab his hand and lead him to the elevator. When we get into the elevator, I pounce on him causing him to startle back. Our lips interlock. Our tongues start dancing. My hand reaches down to his belt buckle, I start to fiddle with it. He pulls away. My teeth clench down on his bottom lip. “Fuck, woman. Anxious much?” he groans, as I release his lip. 


I purr, “You’re all my tonight. So be ready?”


“Well, okay then,” he smirks. 


The elevator door opens up and we walk down the long, dim-light hallaway. It was like a scene from a music video. While holding his hand, I lead him down the orangish-red carpet to my room at the end. It’s been too damn long since I have been with a man. Jonathon was my last. After the divorce, my focus with my children and career. Tonight is going to be different. My focus is getting fucked while fucking his brain out. All this built up tension is about to unleash on this poor pup. Jonathon might have been the last man I fucked but that doesn’t mean I’m not shy when exploring more. I’m going to make Lennox my bitch tonight. I love that he is on board. Men, they truly think with their second head. 



We make it to the door. While I fiddle with my phone to get the room barcode to open the door, he wraps his strong arm around me and squeezes me, bringing me close to his body. His breath hits my neck causing my body to shiver. Then hello lips, he nibbles my neck. Goodness, I need the code asap. Finally, the barcode appears in my wallet and I open the door. Both of us dragging our luggage, we stumble into the suite. He releases me from his hold. I turn around, pushing my luggage to the floor. He stands just a few feet from the doorway. I demand, “Close the door. But first put up the sign that says ‘Do Not Disturb’.”

ARC Review: Flame by Donna Grant

Length: 352 pages

Published: June 30, 2020

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: ARC from NetGalley

Synopsis

If she believed in destiny, she would believe they were meant for each other.

But that fire was put out long ago. . .

Living among the Dragon Kings, Cain has spent lifetimes learning to distrust both mortals and Fae. He is a warrior born—and every instinct demands that he fight to keep his own kind safe. But when a fringe member of the Dark Fae contacts the Kings with an urgent warning, Cain is torn for the first time. How can he trust this beautiful creature when resisting his primal attraction to her is battle enough?

Noreen is horrified by what her kind and the malevolent Others are planning for the Dragon Kings. Dark Fae or not, there are lines she will not cross—even if it means risking her life. But she never imagined that she would risk her heart until she meets Cain. She wants him with a soul-deep desire that frightens her…and endangers them both. Is saying goodbye to everything Noreen has ever known worth a love that will span time and realms?

My thoughts 💭

This book was amazing! Betrayal, mates, steam, dragons, and trying to stop evil…this book kept me on the edge and I enjoyed it! Dragon King and a Dark Fae/Other isn’t supposed to be together but their chemistry can’t be denied. Cain and Noreen’s story is interesting with plenty of steam! I definitely recommend reading this!

Campfire Chaos

Hood River Hoodlums, Book 3
by K Webster
Publication Date: June 25, 2020
Genres: Forbidden Enemies to Lovers Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books

From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a forbidden, enemies to lovers romance called Campfire Chaos!

I had it all.
Popularity. Good grades. Cheerleading. Doting family and great friends.

Until the wrong boy swept into my perfect world and destroyed every part of it.
Abuse. Drugs. Humiliation.
He trampled all over my reputation and I was powerless to do anything about it.
I couldn’t break free from his controlling hold.
But the night of the accident changed everything.

Now I’m freed at last.
It comes at a cost, though. I hurt a Hoodlum.
I can’t fix him, but I can fix me.
Without the monster in my life, I grow stronger, fiercer, braver.

I’m on the right track to cleaning up the mess that is my life.
Repairing friendships.
Restoring trust with my family.
Healing from my recent, terrible past.

Everything was going to be okay.
Or so I thought.

Because I have a new problem.
Cal Hutton.
Town’s lawless, gorgeous bad boy. A Hood River Hoodlum. My new nemesis.
He wants me to pay for what I did to his best friend.

Cal thinks I’m weak and an unworthy adversary, someone he can toy with.
But I’ll never allow another man to have that power over me.

I have claws now.
I fight back.

This is a full-length high school enemies-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book three in the Hood River Hoodlum series that will have interlinking storylines. Campfire Chaos shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the continuation of a four-book planned series that gives each Hoodlum a book. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF.

New Release! Essence Of Fear by Bethany-Kris

ESSENCE OF FEAR

by Bethany-KrisA Boykov Bratva NovelPublication Date: June 22, 2020Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance, Standalone

The allure of fear is learning to love it.

Viktoria Boykov has heard it all—cold they call her. The spoiled bratva princess. She knows very well what people say when her back is turned. She doesn’t mind; let them talk. It’s better for people to assume what they want about her than for them to know the truth … until him.

Pavel Kotov knows what people say—death they call him. The Boykov dog. He’s heard all the whispers locked away in the cells of the Compound. As the reaper for the bratva, his life owned by someone else, he knows what they say doesn’t matter. His life has never mattered … until her.

He’s terrifying.

She’s terrified.

Viktoria only wants to keep running from her past. Pavel doesn’t have a life to run from. Freedom is the one thing they both crave—for entirely different reasons. But this life is vicious, and scars like the ones they wear will never fade.

Together, they could have everything.

Or are they just pawns to a bigger game?

*

Note: Essence of Fear is a Boykov Bratva standalone.

“What is the card for?” she asked.

Pav hummed under his breath and eyed her from the side. “A party to celebrate something beautiful.”

“So, you really do need a generic card?”

“I suppose.”

It took her all of three seconds to find a generic card with the usual congratulations stamped on the front, and the usual platitudes on the inside. She grabbed the matching envelop, and handed it over to Pav, too. He took them with the same smile as before.

“There you are.”

She turned to walk away, but it was his hand quickly curving around her wrist that stopped her. She froze all over, and a small tremor worked its way through her sinew. Air sucked fast and sharp into her lungs.

At the same time, she enjoyed the warmth of his palm against his skin. She liked the way his fingers tightened against her skin, and the pressure of his fingertips pressing into her racing pulse point. There was no way to hide the way his touch both terrified her and confused her.

Excited her.

Viktoria looked back at Pav but said nothing.

He quirked a brow. “I was going to say thank you.”

She nodded. “You don’t have to.”

Now, let me go.

The words came out in her mind, but not out of her mouth. She wanted to say them, and she didn’t want to say them at the same time.

How strange …

Da. I was going to say it, but now I want to say something else.”

Viktoria wet her bottom lip, muttering, “So, say whatever it is, then.”

“You’re still scared of me?”

She blinked.

Her mouth worked, though.

“Yes,” she whispered.
