From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

 Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?

Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.

When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.

 The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.

 The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.

 I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.

 The worst part? He didn’t come alone.

 I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.

 The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.

Author’s note – RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Series: A Breaking the Rules Novel
Author: A.M. Madden
Genre: Contemporary Romance Stand Alone
Release Date: January 25, 2016
Love isn’t always smooth sailing.

Graduating from college is supposed to be a promise for excitement and limitless possibilities. But for unemployed Rebecca Stanton, the highlight of her day is sitting in her parents’ home with a pint of Chunky Monkey while watching The Bachelor. Desperate for change and inspired by a late night commercial, she stumbles onto a job opportunity with a new cruise line, packs her bags, and sets sail toward her new destiny. 

Life is full of an endless supply of exciting possibilities for Marco Puglia. The tall, dark, handsome, ITALIAN Cruise Director with Sunset Cruise Lines is practically a celebrity in the cruising industry. When Marco adds Rebecca to his staff, he soon discovers it is both the best and worst decision he’s ever made. The beautiful siren has captured his attention and ensnared his heart. An intense attraction like theirs doesn’t follow the rules, even one that forbids a boss/employee relationship.

Will their blatant mutiny force their newly found love aground, or will Rebecca and Marco find love on their horizon?

Love on The Horizon is a contemporary romantic comedy meant for readers who are 18+ due to mature content.

One crazy dog—one awkward vet—one naked pool guy—and one life-changing month in California to make friends, fall in love, and twist fate.

Who gets paid to walk a dog and recline by the pool all day? Sydney Montgomery, aspiring museum curator and professional house-sitter, that’s who.

When her aunt and uncle need a house and dog sitter for thirty days in Palo Alto, Sydney can’t turn down the chance to be closer to her sister in L.A. Within twenty-four hours of her arrival, Sydney’s cleaning up runny dog poo, taking an uncooperative pooch to a handsome yet awkward vet, and being rescued from the bottom of the pool by a naked “pool guy.”

Lautner, “pool guy,” has a hot body and a cool persona. With eyes of iridescent blue oceans, he is mesmerizing, sexy, and addictive. What he is not—the pool guy.

Dr. Lautner Sullivan is a college wide receiver turned pediatric resident. He knows how to woo a woman with flowers, pastries, and sweet tea. Lautner is every girl’s dream, but Sydney is not every girl. She’s immune to rainbows, fairytales, pixy dust, and the “L” word.

The attraction is immediate, the friendship is earned, and the love is undeniable. Thirty days is their forever, but forever is not long enough.

A standalone Contemporary Romance novel!

Blurb

The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room.

It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.

The famed quarterback decided to bare all.

And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets.

No.  The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question.  On camera.

The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me.

When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me.

But I don’t date players.

And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football.

I’d date an athlete.

It’s the other kind of player I don’t date.

You know the type.  Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid.

Brody Easton was the ultimate player.

Every woman wanted to be the one to change him.

But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for.

Turned out, I was that girl.

Simple right?

Let’s face it.  It never is.

There’s a story between once upon a time and happily ever after…

And this one is ours.

Excerpt from 

the baller banner

A new song had just started, and I was enjoying his company when a voice behind me said, “Can I cut in?”

My head whipped around, even though I had no doubt whom the gravelly voice belonged to.

Michael was gracious. “I hate to share. But I suppose I have been hogging the most beautiful woman at the event.” He let go of my hand and stepped back with a gentlemanly nod. “Thank you for the dance, Delilah.”

Again Brody Easton had caught me off guard. Before I knew it, I was dancing with the arrogant jerk. He wrapped his arms around me and pulled my body tight against his. Way tighter than Michael had held me.

“Good to see you again, Lois Lane.”

The man had balls; I had to give him that. I looked him straight in the eyes. “Nice to see you with clothes on, Easton.”

“Do you prefer me without?”

“I prefer you on the other side of the room.”

He chuckled. It was a hearty laugh. “That’s what happens sometimes when you decide you want to hang out in the men’s locker room.”

I tried to pull back, but he tightened his grip and held me in place. I craned my neck. “Let go of me.”

“No.”

“No?”

“That’s right. No.”

“I can scream at the top of my lungs.”

“I’d like to hear you scream.” His tone made it clear he meant he wanted me underneath him while I was doing the screaming.

“You’re an asshole. You know that?”

“I do. You asked me that yesterday. For a reporter, you should really try changing up your questions more frequently.”

My eyes bulged.

Easton shifted his hand down to the small of my back before twirling us around the dance floor. Figures the prick can dance.

“Are you seeing anyone?”

“You can’t be serious?”

He ignored my comment. “Would you like to have dinner tonight?”

“We just ate.”

“Dessert at my place, then?”

I couldn’t help but laugh. “Did you hit your head at the game yesterday?”

“On a diet, huh?”

“Yeah. That’s it. I don’t want to go to your place for dessert because I’m on a diet.”

“Well, that’s just a shame.”

? Wicked Lust ? by Sawyer Bennett Release Tour and Review

WickedLustTourBannerGrab Wicked Lust on Amazon

Wicked Lust (The Wicked Horse Series Book #2)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: January 5, 2016

Synopsis:

Cain Bonham is as big and bad as they come. After serving in the Marines, he’s returned home to Wyoming and now works as head of security at the exclusive sex club, The Wicked Horse. His job is to protect not only the patrons, but to zealously guard the secret existence of the club itself.

Sloane Preston is all about discovering secrets. As an undercover reporter, she’s determined to reveal the truth behind the facade of The Wicked Horse and expose it for all the world to see. She just didn’t count on her pathway into the club coming at the hands of one gorgeously scarred and bad ass bouncer who manages to easily possess her body and soul.

While Cain’s not looking for anyone to catch his eye, Sloane did it all the same, and he’s not bemoaning the fact that she’s as wickedly kinky as he is. As both get caught up in the sinful fantasies that only The Wicked Horse can create, secrets and loyalties will be tested and hearts will risk being broken.

**Warning: this book has sex in it. Lots of sex. Dirty sex. The Wicked Horse Series is a bit different than what Sawyer Bennett normally writes. While you’ll still enjoy fabulous characters, a suspenseful story, some witty banter and an epic romance, there’s just… a lot of sex. You’ve been warned.

Kristys Review (2)

3 StarsI want to start off by saying I’m a big fan of Sawyer Bennett.  I really love her Cold Fury Hockey series and I was really excited when I heard about the Wicked Horse series because…well….a great writer and Sex Club. Enough said.

The first book, Wicked Fall was pretty good.  I liked the characters and the story line.  The sex was pretty hot, not quite erotica, but not bad either. Woolf was hot and Bridger??? HELLO I really wanted more of that guy. So I went into Wicked Lust with high hopes. Maybe a little too high.  I didn’t really like these characters, mainly because I felt like I didn’t know them at all.  The first several chapters (half of the book) has virtually nothing going on except sex.  Now I like a good sex scene (or ten) as much as the next reader (actually more than most) but I need to know something about the characters. I felt no connection between them or to them.  At one point my inner dialogue actually became “Oh look, what a surprise, they’re having sex again.”

Then the book gets kinky (sort of, I mean it tries to) but it just seemed too vanilla to be smut, yet the premise (plot) under which the sex unfolds seems hard to believe for me, forced maybe (no that’s not a pun).  Then Bridger enters the picture (did I mention I have a thing for him) and even he was a little bit of a let down.

Then…..

THEN the plot starts to pick up and I was kind of feeling it for a while.  Bridger stepped up to the plate and made the story interesting (in ways not involving his member).  The main character’s start to show some personality, they have a little back ground.  I started to feel sucked in a little, but we are talking 3/4 of the way into the book.  And then, I don’t know, it kind of fell apart for me again.  Forced drama, decisions that made you want to slap the characters.  Overall, I just never really got into this book.  I’m still holding out hope that Bridger will get a book at some point but, until then I’m not sure I will read the other books in this series.  Honestly this one was just barely 3 stars for me.

About LOVE IN THE LIGHT (Hearts in Darkness Duet #2):

Two hearts in the darkness…

Makenna James and Caden Grayson have been inseparable since the day they were trapped in a pitch-black elevator and found acceptance and love in the arms of a stranger. Makenna hopes that night put them on the path to forever—which can’t happen until she introduces her tattooed, pierced, and scarred boyfriend to her father and three over-protective brothers.

Must fight for love in the light…

Haunted by a childhood tragedy and the loss of his family, Caden never thought he’d find the love he shares with Makenna. But the deeper he falls, the more he fears the devastation sure to come if he ever lost her, too. When meeting her family doesn’t go smoothly, Caden questions whether Makenna deserves someone better, stronger, and just more…normal. Maybe they’re too different—and he’s far too damaged—after all…

Kristys Review (2)5 1_2 Star Review
I bought Hearts in Darkness in 2012 and it instantly became one of my very favorite books. I’ve read it countless times since that first time and I’ve made all my friends read it, too. I marveled at how any author could get such a complete story in so few pages. I was amazed that a story that takes place in a 12 hour time span could be a believable love story that didn’t feel even a bit like insta-love. I adored two characters that fit so perfectly together and I wanted to know so badly what happened when they woke up the next morning. Three years and I never forgot these two. Turns out I wasn’t the only one….

It’s here….oh THANK GOD it’s finally here !!!

And guess what ????
It’s about 100% times better than I even hoped it could be.
I should have known!!!

If Laura Kaye can make a 112 page Novella feel like a 200 page book, packed with emotion, romance, humor and super sexy times….

then what she can do with 200 pages is damn extraordinary.

Love in the Light picks up a few weeks after Caden and McKenna get out of the infamous elevator. They are inseparable and forging ahead in a new relationship, trying to figure out how and if their lives fit together and if the connection they found in that dark elevator can survive in the light of day.

Two things put this book over the top for me. First, it’s the characters. McKenna and Caden are two of the best characters I’ve ever read, they are so real, so completely layered and down to earth. McKenna is smart, she’s fun, she’s intuitive when it comes to Caden and she’s all in. It’s refreshing to have a female character that is drama free, straight forward, open and honest and willing fight for the man she loves. Caden is amazing. He is the best good guy I’ve ever fallen in love with (in a book of course). He’s strong without being an alpha jerk, he’s vulnerable without being weak, sexy without being cocky, sweet without being sappy. He is the perfect man but he is still very much haunted by his past.

Which leads me to the second thing I loved about this book. I don’t want to give anything away, so I will simply say this. Laura Kaye tackles a topic that very VERY rarely gets addressed in the books I read and she does it to perfection, absolute perfection. I believed every single feeling, action and reaction. I empathized with both Caden and McKenna, I cried with them and for them. I understood where they were emotionally, why they ended up there and how hard it was on them both. I’ve have never been more moved or more impressed by an author’s ability to articulate emotions.

Laure Kaye has been on my Favorite Authors page since I started this blog. Books like this remind me why. The best advice I can give you…..read this series, then read every book Laura Kaye has ever written.

 

Wenn's Review

5 Star Review

So my awesome blog partner one day told me to read Hearts in Darkness as it was one of her favorite book. Seeing Love in the Light was about to be released I had to read them.

It did NOT disappoint.
I’m not a huge fan of Insta love but the first book was so well written, I had no issue understanding that their love was real, profound and true.

Hearts in Darkness finishes at the end of the day, when they are finally out of this elevator. They bared their hearts, divulged secrets to each other.

Love in the Light starts right after this, they are now in a commited relationship.
What happens next blew my mind. Never in a million year would I thought that the subject dealt with would be approached so beautifully, with extreme care and precision.

I loved this book. I loved how perfect Mackenna and Caden are for each other. How they care for each other.

Thank you Kristy for being so enthusiatic about these books, I def would have missed a really really great love story!

He knows how to score, on and off the ice

Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she’s going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands.

It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over

Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.

Kristys Review (2)

5 Star ReviewThe Deal was one of my favorite books of 2015 so I had extremely high hopes for The Score, especially considering that Dean was kind of an ass in the previous books and in all honesty….. I really have a thing for cocky, womanizing asses.  I thought it was entirely possible that I would love Dean.  I have never been so happy to be wrong. I didn’t love Dean…I adored him. I couldn’t get enough of him. He was everything I wanted him to be and then he was even better than that.  He was so damn funny and cocky and horny, but he was also sweet and protective and sincere and completely comfortable in his own very impressive skin.  Turns out he also has a big old heart too……who knew?

I know much was made about who Dean should be paired with in this book and perhaps Allie wasn’t the obvious choice, but Oh My God was she the right choice.  I adored Allie and I don’t walk away from a lot of books in love with the female lead, so I’m always so damn excited when I do.  Allie was funny, Allie was cool.  She was fun and independent and wonderful at learning how to go with the flow that was Dean.

There was a lot of unexpected in this book.  I don’t want to make it sound like it’s all sunshine and roses in this book.  Dean and Allie are both faced with some seriously intense issues that life throws at them and watching them, both as individuals and as a couple, cope and navigate is such a wonderful and gut wrenching experience.  The people they become are so vastly different from the people they are when they first get together and the journey from beginning to end is remarkable.

I loved this book….. beginning, middle and end.  It absolutely lives up to the hype.  Dean is so worth the wait !!!!!!

Excerpt from THE BALLER

“You ready?” Nick slung his bag over his shoulder and lifted his camera. The reporter in front of us wrapped up his interview and shook hands with Easton.

As I’ll ever be. “Sure.”

I stepped forward and extended my hand. “I’m Delilah Maddox with WMBC Sports News.”

A slow grin spread across Easton’s face. He surprised me by leaning in and kissing me on the cheek. “Pleasure to meet you.”

I wasn’t sure if he was baiting me into an argument—expecting me to lash out at him for kissing me when he’d just shaken the last male reporter’s hand—or if he was trying to use his blatant sexuality to throw me off. Either way, I wasn’t playing his game. I cleared my throat and stood straighter, even though my knees felt a little wobbly.

“Do you mind if I ask you some questions?”

“Why else would you be in here?”

I ignored his sarcasm. He was still smiling at me. Actually, it was more like a smirk, and it made me feel like a toy he was about to play with. “You ready, Nick?” My cameraman finished setting up the lighting, then lifted the camera into position and gave me a hand signal.

“Congratulations on the win today, Brody. How is your knee feeling after your first game back?” I lifted my microphone high, knowing Nick was filming in close.

“I feel . . . ” He nonchalantly reached to the towel wrapped around his waist and tugged at the corner. The towel fell to the ground. “Great. I feel great. And how about you? It’s your first trip into the locker room, isn’t it? Do you like what you see so far?” His lips curled up into a full-blown wicked smile.

Before I could catch myself, my eyes dropped to his naked lower half. Shit. He was dangling in the wind. I totally got distracted by just how low the thing dangled. It was probably a full minute before I responded to his question. A full minute of dead air time. Great. “Yes. Umm . . . the locker room is . . . ummm . . . nice.”

I sounded like a total ditz. On air.

The jackass continued interviewing me. “Is it as big as you thought it would be?”

“Ummm . . . it’s much bigger than I imagined.”

His smile grew even wider.

Ugh.

I needed to get back on track or my first locker room interview would become a laughingstock blooper. Viewers had no idea he was naked from the waist down. “Do you think you were at one hundred percent today?”

His eyebrows jumped. “If you’re referring to today’s game, definitely. I had one hundred percent out there on the field. There’re some other areas where I have a lot of growth potential, but my knee felt one hundred percent today.”

His pale green eyes darkened, and I watched his long lashes lower. I followed his line of sight, and suddenly I was staring at his naked package. Again. Damn it. My eyes darted back up, but I felt my cheeks heating. I had to end this, or I was going to be beet red on air.

“Well, welcome back. And congratulations on today’s win.”

I waited until Nick lowered his camera and turned off the light. Then I looked right at Brody Easton’s smug face. “You’re an asshole, you know that?”

His eyes sparkled. “I do.”

I heard the chuckles and high fives at my back as I stormed out of the locker room.

Blurb

The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room.

It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.

The famed quarterback decided to bare all.

And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets.

No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera.

The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me.

When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me.

But I don’t date players.

And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football.

I’d date an athlete.

It’s the other kind of player I don’t date.

You know the type. Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid.

Brody Easton was the ultimate player.

Every woman wanted to be the one to change him.

But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for.

Turned out, I was that girl.

Simple right?

Let’s face it. It never is.

There’s a story between once upon a time and happily ever after…

And this one is ours.
