Defy by LJ Shen *** Cover Reveal ***

Title: Defy
Series: Sinners of Saints #0.5
Author: L.J Shen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 3, 2017

 

My name is Melody Greene, and I have a confession to make.

 

I slept with my student, a senior in high school.

 

Multiple times.

 

I had multiple orgasms.
In multiple positions.
I slept with my student and I enjoyed it.
I slept with my student and I’d do it all over again if I could turn back time.
My name is Melody Greene, and I got kicked out of my position as a teacher and did my walk of shame a la Cersei Lannister from the principal’s office, minutes after said principal threatened to call the cops on me.
My name is Melody Greene, and I did something bad because it made me feel good.
Here is why it was totally worth it. 

Defy is a smutty, insta-love, insta-lust short novella. Defy is a prequel to Vicious (Sinners of Saint #1). It is recommended, but unnecessary, to read Defy before reading Vicious.

 

L.J. Shen resides in sunny California with her husband, son, chubby cat and wild, wild dreams.

Her passion is to write badass stories, sushi, UFC and her awesome family and friends (not in this order, though. Obviously, sushi comes before writing. Oh, and also the family part.)


She spend the first half of her twenties traveling the world and is now paying all the fun with extra shifts in front of her MacBook. Feel free to contact her on her Facebook page. She loves to hear from her readers.

Wenn’s Review

Sweet, quick lust/love story.

I will definitely read more about this new duo as their first release is really promising.

To the book now!
The book is short so there’s no time for a slow and torturous dance around feelings. AND YET! There’s this back and forth between the characters, this forbidden attraction both of them try to fight; with moments of indulgence, where they succomb to the temptation of their quickly escalading feelings.

I won’t spoil the book but there’s one thing in particular that I loved. It’s the personnality of our young man. It’s actually very believable, he’s mature yet immature, alpha but not cocky… I loved that.

I’m giving it 3.5 stars and will eagerly wait for their next release!

EXCERPT

 

A hand on my arm stirs me from my deep musings. “Lucas, are you okay?”

My head turns and I find Charlotte standing beside me. The first thing I
notice are her large tits and how close they are to touching my arm. If I
shift a fraction of a step to the side I could feel them press against me.
My eyes move up over her delicate collarbones. I want to place a kiss
between them and then lick my way up her graceful neck until I reach her
red mouth. Fuck me. She has the mouth of a fucking porn star. I wonder if
she sucks dick like one?

“Lucas.” She rubs my arm, pulling me back to the present.

My eyes leave her enticing lips and raise up to meet her enthralling blues
and I finally find my voice. “Yeah, I’m fine.” I turn to face her, our
gazes never breaking contact. With her heels she stands only a few inches
shorter than my six foot one inch frame and the tips of her breasts are
pointing at my chest. Being this close to her has my dick hard. I’ve never
had such a strong reaction to a woman before. A few seconds in her company
and my cock’s ready and waiting.

“Can I get you anything?” she asks, rubbing my arm again.

That’s a loaded question if I ever heard one.

“I don’t know. Can you?”

Her hand falls from my arm. “If you want something, I’ll get it for you.”

I inch forward until her tits are touching my chest. Her eyes go wide. “I
want a lot of things Charlie.” I let my hand caress over the curve of her
hip down to the top of her ass as I reach behind her to pick up the refill
the waitress placed there for me a few minutes ago. I take a step back,
lifting the drink toward my mouth. “Right now I just want another beer.” My
lips close around the bottle and I take a large gulp. Jesus. I need a cold
shower after being this close to her.

Her porn star lips open in a silent oh at my reply. She flashes me a tight
smile and looks down at the diamond encrusted Rolex on her wrist. “The limo
will be here in twenty minutes to pick us up.”

I nod my head before tipping back the beer. If I drink this one straight
down I’ll have time for one more.

Charlotte takes a dainty step back still looking at me and then pivots
around to walk back into the reception room. My eyes follow her, locked on
the generous curves of her ass. Fuck. I no longer need to wonder or
speculate about what my father saw in her. It’s the same thing every red
blooded guy sees when he looks at her. SEX. Between her large rack, her
full lips and her heart shaped ass, I don’t know which I’d like to bite
more. But I’d sure like to find out.

Text 2 Lovers

by K. Webster & J.D. Hollyfield
Publication Date: January 24, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romantic Comedy

 

It’s the start of nothing good.
I fired off a storm of raunchy text messages…to the wrong number.
And he replied.
Him: Show me a picture.
Him: Tell me your name.
Why does the lure of anonymity have me craving to indulge a stranger?

It’s the start of everything right.
I received a slew of text messages…when everything in my life was wrong.
And she made me laugh again.
Her: You’re probably a creeper.
Her: Possibly a stalker.
Why do I have the overwhelming need to find this stranger who saved me and make her mine?

Him: Take a chance with me.
Her: This is crazy.
Him: I need to see you.
Her: What are we doing?
Him: We’re about to find out.

Her: PHOTO ATTACHED
Him: PHOTO ATTACHED

This book was cute and funny and hot and everything you would expect from J.D. Hollyfield and K. Webster, but what kind of took me by surprise was how emotionally involved I got in these characters. I was totally hooked on the romance and the relationship. I’m not going to lie, of course I did a lot of laughing and gasping in surprise, but I also shed a few tears and swooned hard. I really loved both characters. And the secondary characters were a great addition, adding humor and drama to the entire story. I will definitely be grabbing their books when the time comes.

Synopsis

I believe in fairy tales — the kind where a knight in shining armor sweeps me off my feet. Coming from a broken home, fairy tales housed the hope I clung to. Never in my life did I imagine two knights coming into my life— two knights that wore very different armor.

A rockstar versus a lawyer.

Fast and furious versus deliberate and calculated.

Intense and passionate versus strong and devoted.

Chaos versus stability.

I fell in love with one in the craziness of a concert.

I fell in love with the other in the silence of his compassion.

And now I am Torn Between Two.

 

Goodreads

 

torn5_new

 

It’s January and I can tell you whole-heartedly that this book will be in my Top Ten for 2017.

Here’s how I know:

This duet is in my Top Ten Books of All Time (as in one of the very best stories I’ve ever read).

This story is simply the most beautiful, uplifting, heart-breaking, love-affirming, soul-shattering roller coaster I’ve ever read. I can only say I am so beyond grateful that Mia Kayla took me on such a breath-taking ride. I’m not going to tell you this book is flawless because the beauty of this book is its flaws…its flawed characters, its flawed love, its flawed circumstances. I loved every single page in this story…even the ones I hated.

What blew me away, more than any other aspect of this book, is how much I LOVED each and every character. I think that’s what made this story unforgettable. Sam is clearly torn between these two amazing and amazingly different men in her life, but you will be too. I understood Sam because I also loved them both. I adored Hawke and his crazy life and his beautiful words and intense love. But I also adored Josh and his calm strength and his beautiful heart and his compassionate love. Crap…now I’m tearing up just thinking about them. It’s just stunning to me that Mia was able to make me love them both so completely. And Sam is a great character. There is nothing weak or selfish in her feeling for these two. She is a loving, caring, independent woman who has had her fair share of heart-break. She is in a situation that no woman would ever expect to find herself in and there are simply no easy answers. She is never careless with her feelings or callous with her love.

This is not a book about cheating, that’s not what’s going on here. It’s a book about circumstances you don’t plan and feelings you don’t expect and people you never see coming, but who matter in ways you can’t control. It’s about the decisions you make and the decisions that are made for you. This book is about all the best parts and the worst parts of falling in love. It’s about falling in love fast and falling in love slow and friendship and passion and hurt and heartache. It’s about love.

This book is a love triangle, honestly the BEST love triangle I have ever read. It is NOT a menage or a threesome (Nothing wrong with those…I read them too. That’s just not what this duet is). I know not everyone loves a triangle…read this one anyway. I know people like the concept of a once in a lifetime love that is like nothing the H/h have ever experienced before….read this book anyway. I know not everyone embraces the idea that you can love two different people for very different reasons at the same time….READ. IT. ANYWAY !!! I would absolutely hate to think that anyone would miss out on this absolutely breath-taking love story because they were afraid to take a chance on it or because they had a preconceived notion of what a love story needs to look like.

I just can’t believe how freaking brilliant it is. I honestly laughed out loud, I ugly cried, I panicked, I screamed, I swooned, I hurt, I healed and I loved. THIS is why I read. This feeling right here….like I can’t get enough and I never want it to end.

Life is made up of choices.
Single choices like bricks laid out in a path. A path that leads to your future.

I love them both, but I have to choose.
There is only one choice I can make.
And I choose forever.

Next to Never by Penelope Douglas *** Release Blitz ***

 


Buy Next to Never

Amazon / Amazon UK / Amazon AUS / Nook / iBooks / Kobo

Title: Next to Never

 Genre: New Adult

 Author: Penelope Douglas

 

 

Synopsis:

New York Times bestseller Penelope Douglas introduces Quinn, younger sister to Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon, in the latest novella in the series that began with Jared and Tate in Bully…

Quinn Caruthers has several problems.

Her father, Jason, and her three older brothers, Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon.

Under the close watch of the men in her family, Quinn has found it nearly impossible to spread her wings—or even date—without them jumping in to hover. And when a family friend—several years older—from her childhood captures her heart, she knows they’re going to be a problem. Lucas Morrow is a man—experienced, sophisticated, and important. And knowing her brothers, he may as well be forbidden.

But Lucas left town years ago and shows no signs of returning. Quinn knows she shouldn’t wait for him anymore.

But then a package turns up on her doorstep with no return address and its contents reveal family secrets that threaten to turn Quinn’s world upside down. She’s never asked about the tumultuous path of her parents’ romantic history, but she soon learns their happy marriage had a very rocky and passionate start.

As she begins to see things around her with new eyes, Quinn will have to make tough choices about whether she’ll keep waiting…or finally go after what she really wants.

Prologue:

There’s a prologue that Penelope had to delete from the book and she was kind enough to share it with all of us on her website. If you want to read it, and I highly recommend that that you do, you can check it out here.

CLAM JAM

RC Boldt
Now LIVE
 
“Clam Jam”
Definition: the female equivalent of a cock
block.
 
Example: You’re chatting with a guy you’re
interested in 
and your friend comes along and lays claim to him. 
 
Maggie
That’s my
life—except it’s worse. My friend who keeps “jamming” me is my gay roommate and
if that isn’t a W.T.F. moment, I’m not sure what is.


Fact: He went home with three—yes,
three—of the guys I had been so sure were into me.
Fact: 
He’s really
pissing me off. I mean, hello? I’m trying to get back in the saddle, but I’ll
never manage to get a boyfriend before the age of fifty if he keeps this up.
Fact: Secretly, I wonder
what it would be like if he weren’t gay. Why do all the hot, sweet,
tender-hearted guys have to be gay?
Fact:
My gay-dar needs a
serious tune-up.
 
Ry
The day I
interviewed for the room to rent, everything changed. I knew I had met “the
girl”, except there was one small problem: she didn’t want anything to do with
men. I recognized a top-notch force field when I saw one. She’d been burned
badly and didn’t want to deal with a heterosexual guy as a roommate. I could’ve
turned around and found another place to live, but I wanted to live there—with
her.
So I had to
go “undercover”. 


Fact: I’m in love with my roommate.
Fact: 
I’m a likely
candidate for carpal tunnel surgery since all the action I’ve had for the past
year has been my hand.
Fact: 
She’s going to
hate me if I come clean now.
Fact: 
I’m not giving
up. Which means, I’ll just have to continue to run defense until I figure out a
way to get Maggie to see the “real” me. 


The me that
loves her.
The me that
would never do her wrong.
Until then,
I’ll keep running off every guy who shows any interest. 
Until then,
I’ll continue to Clam Jam. 
 

 Friends to lovers is one of my very favorite tropes but Clam Jam puts a hell of a spin on it. This was my first RC Boldt book and I have to say…she won me over. This book was funny and sweet and had all the feels I need in a good book. I really loved all the characters,. not just the two leads, but their two best friends also. All of them had me laughing out loud at times especially Ry’s best friend Jack. I’m hoping he gets a book soon.

So, what makes any book in this trope work is a believable friendship between the two main characters and a believable reason they stay apart. This book hits both of those right on the mark. From page one I absolutely bought into the friendship between these characters, I loved it, I absorbed every detail of it. It was exactly what it needed to be. BUT…the reason they were apart worked just as well and I think that’s much harder for an author to pull off. I completely understood why Ry was doing what he was doing and why Maggie was struggling with her feelings. In the end, it made the payoff even better.

Definitely will be looking for more from this author.

RC Boldt is the wife of Mr.
Boldt, a retired Navy Chief, mother of Little Miss Boldt, and former teacher of
many students. She currently lives on the southeastern coast of North Carolina,
enjoys long walks on the beach, running, reading, people watching, and singing
karaoke. If you’re in the mood for some killer homemade mojitos, can’t recall
the lyrics to a particular 80’s song, or just need to hang around a
nonconformist who will do almost anything for a laugh, she’s your girl.
