💙💙NEW RELEASE💙💙 Complicated Hearts Book 2 by Ashley Jade

Title: Complicated Hearts: Part 2
Series: Complicated Hearts Duet
Author: Ashley Jade
Genre: New Adult/Erotica/Menage
Release Date: August 31, 2017

 

Things are going to get…complicated. 

This is Book two (the final book) of the Complicated Hearts Duet. Book one must be read first.

Warning: This book is not for everyone. These characters are flawed and the situation is intense and frustrating. Emotions—all of them—run high. If you’re looking for perfect characters and a perfect story…this book isn’t for you. 

Trigger Warning:
This story is strange and unconventional. It’s everything you hate. That’s the only warning I can offer you.

 After Book One in this series I was eagerly anticipating Book Two….(OK that is a total understatement…I was desperate for it) and HOLY HELL it did not disappoint. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out exactly what makes a book great, but in this case it’s easy….a great story and three amazing characters. I loved the journey this book took me on, I loved the ups and downs, the things I saw coming and the things I never expected (actually..those parts were my favorite). I loved the struggles and the triumphs, the redemption and the forgiveness…I loved all of it
Landon, Asher and Breslin… these three are what made this entire series so good for me. How rare is it to have a story with three main characters that are amazing, relatable, fully fleshed out with backstory and have strengths and flaws and character and heart? Umm…..rare. Just when I thought one of them was becoming my favorite…BAM, the POV would switch and someone else would start stealing my heart (and yes…I’m including Breslin in this. This story is not all about the boys, she was every bit as important to me). Landon was amazing. He was the calm in the storm, the safe place to land, the voice of reason throughout the story, but my favorite part about Landon was went the cracks started to show and he stopped reining in his emotions. It was epic. And then there was Asher…I adored Asher. I love a damaged, misunderstood, tragically heroic bad boy and Asher was the perfect example of that. His pain was so palpable, so exposed. I just loved him passionately. And Breslin, the girl stuck in the middle, only sometimes she seemed more like the girl stuck on the outside, or the girl stuck in the past. I just got her. Her fears, her hang-ups, her emotions were so on point. And her evolution was a beautiful thing to watch.

Also…this book was hot. I mean… SO, ummm… really really HOT. 💥

This book just surprised me. Ashley Jade did some thing…some really freaking SMART things that I was not expecting and they made this book for me. I will say there was a lot going on in this book, and I’m not sure some of the subplots were completely necessary, but they didn’t detract from story and they were handled intelligently and clearly. Actually, they were surprisingly uncomplicated. At it’s core, this book is a beautiful, poignant, unconventional love story about new loves and old flames and first times and second chances and what you’re willing to do for your happily ever after. It’s really quite spectacular and…complicated.

Toying with Her by Prescott Lane
Release Date: August 17th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Toying with Her, an all-new standalone from Prescott Lane is available NOW!!!

toyingwithher

No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s best selling vibrator, it’s near impossible. Yep, that’s right. That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child. It’s aptly named Woman on Top. And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top.

So I’m headed home to my Southern roots. It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more. But Rorke Weston has other plans for me. Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him.

It’s been said you never forget your first. For me, that’s definitely true. No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke.

He’s turned into quite a man. Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long. And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue.

Rorke wants his chance. The one we never had. But that was a long time ago. When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever Afters. Even ten years later, I feel a pull. And it’s not simply Rorke yanking down my panties.

Do second chances really happen? Or is my heart simply toying with me?

Excerpt:

I know exactly where I want this kiss to go now. We don’t even have to move from this spot. I can take her right up against the door. My lips hover over hers, her chest rising and falling, my cock hard as a rock and pressed against her stomach. The warmth between her legs calls to me, and I bend my knees, pushing into her. She grinds right back.

“Just a kiss,” I whisper, unsure whether I’m telling myself or her.

We never just had a kiss. We went from kissing to sex in the same breath. And while I want her naked in my bed, I want her for more than one night this time, more than just this summer. I want that more. I’m not going to make it easy for her to dismiss me, dismiss this as a one-night stand or a summer fling.

I’m not going to make it easy for her to leave me. I’m going to make it damn near impossible.

Winding my hand in her long brown hair, I lower my head, letting my breath tickle the skin of her neck. Her body trembling, gently I trail kisses up her neck, letting my tongue linger ever so slightly. She tries turning her head down to me, desperate for my lips, but I grip her hair a little tighter, controlling the moment.

“Rorke,” she begs breathlessly.

I know she’s used to being in control. Hell, the woman is responsible for more orgasms than any man could ever be. Lifting my head to look in her eyes, I say, “I know you’re used to being in control of your pleasure. But that ends right now. When you need an orgasm, I’ll provide it. When you want a kiss, I’m your man. You may be the woman on top, but I’m the man holding you up there.”

Wenn’s Review :

 

Another hit by Prescott Lane. I don’t know how she does that. She ALWAYS succeeds in making me feel like the characters in her books are my real life friends. I am 100 % with them all along the read and I am rooting for them throughout the story. This is one of the numerous things I love about her writing. It feels real, it is not always hearts and flowers, but it is life.

Toying with her is a lovely second chance romance, between long lost friends. Sterling is a sex toy creator, she’s successful, wealthy and after a series of events leaving her a little lost, comes back home in dire need of her roots and family in order to reconnect with herself. (BTW her invention looked SO COOL!!!!! )

On the other hand, we have Rorke, a laid-back, sexy teacher. Sterling and Rorke were friends when they were younger but somehow didn’t really kept in contact when life drove them apart.

When they meet again… Well let’s just say sparks fly. Rorke knows the woman Sterling is, he knows her and wants her for who she is, and not for the sex toy inventor, not for the businesswoman she became.

And he will do EVERYTHING to have her. I really loved how sure of his feelings Rorke was. His respect for Sterling was prominent in this story and seeing Sterling blossom and find herself back after being so insecure was an amazing thing. He didn’t push her or anything, he simply had her back no matter what and just helped her see herself as the beautiful and strong woman she was.

About the Author:

Prescott Lane is the Amazon best-selling author of Stripped Raw. She’s got seven other books under her belt including: First Position, Perfectly Broken, Quiet Angel, Wrapped in Lace, Layers of Her, The Reason for Me, and The Sex Bucket List.

I probably should not have waited this long to read a Santino Hassell book, but maybe I was meant to read his football book first. Either way,  I absolutely loved this book. I loved these characters and I LOVED this story.

From page one I was completely sucked in. Well written, in depth, complete, believable characters are few and far between, so I was absolutely THRILLED to find two of them in the same book. Noah had me hooked from page one, he was truly just a really great guy stuck in a bad situation and in need of a good break. Gavin was my favorite kind of Alpha jerk…brooding, angry, isolated but secretly hiding a good guy mushy center. Both characters are amazing, engaging and watching them grow, bond and eventually fall is just breathtaking.

This book had me laughing out loud, shedding tears, cheering, swooning and smiling big. The story was a great ride, but what made this book for me was the two guys at the center that had me absolutely falling in love.

❤💥It’s LIVE💥❤ The Truth About Porn Star Boyfriends by Sunniva Dee

Grab it now on AMAZON :http://amzn.to/2vA3n7T

Synopsis

I guess I just forgot.
To ask him what he did for a living, I mean.
By the time I did, I was in—balls deep, as he’d say.
He was the perfect boyfriend.
Attentive, gorgeous, guessing my every wish and fulfilling them.
The sex was earth-shattering.
He even dealt with my crazy mom the way no one else could.
He popped the question, God, such a perfect guy.
There was just one issue:
He fucked other girls on camera for a living.
How the hell do you deal with that?

Excerpt 

It’s been three days since he left.

I have a photo of him on my phone.

I know what to do with it.

He’s an actor. He makes films. All I need is to Google his photo, and I’ll get that artist name he doesn’t want to give me.

So much secrecy. Deep down I know why. The news that photo will bring me will be terrible, and I’m a dunce for not accepting the writing on the wall when it’s scribbled in black, sloppy italics all around me, yeah—dunce.

I should upload it to Google.

It’s so easy.

Ciro has rented a yacht for the weekend, and he’s paid off Il Signore to have me come along as his personal waitress. My boss knows we’re together, I’m sure. He also loves my boyfriend’s restaurant tip every time he orders out.

I’m on my bed after a long night shift at Mintrer’s, cell phone in hand and his beautiful, smiling picture open in my photo album. He looks at me like he thinks I’m the world. He looks at me like this photo is for me and I’d never betray him. He looks at me with love in his eyes.

He’ll be back on Thursday. It’s only four more days. What are four days when we have three indescribable months behind us? I owe it to him to wait.

“I’ve made my mistakes,” Ciro said. “I want to do it right with you.”

I make his photo into my screensaver.

I’ve been reading Sunniva Dee books for a long time now and I have to admit….this is one of my favorites. I knew from the second I heard the title that this book was going to be good…I just knew it. I love being right!!! LOL  These characters had me hooked from the beginning and so did the story. It just flowed so effortlessly. so believably, so completely organically.

CIro was the perfect book boyfriend, he was hot, smart, romantic, attentive…everything a girl could want in a boy. He was too good to be true….literally. You can’t help but fall for him. He’s genuine and honest to a fault and just a damn good guy….but, you know….porn!!! His profession aside, Ciro was a character that sucked me in, made me feel his emotions and had me rooting for him at every turn. I totally understood Savannah falling for him. I completely understood her not asking that one important question. I REALLY understood everything she did both before and after that one life changing moment. Both characters were real and relatable and completely fleshed out in a way that kept this book from being a novelty and made it a legitimate romance instead.

This book had my emotions all over the place. The tension was thick for me through most of this one. I was on the edge of my seat, so wound up about what was coming. (I love that feeling, like when you’re on a roller coaster, at the top of the first big hill, waiting with excitement and dread for the fall. That’s how most of this book made me feel.) I was pulling for them as a couple the entire time, but I was also pulling for them as individuals. At different times my heart soared and broke for them both. At times, I really couldn’t see how there could be a resolution that would be right and true and fair for both characters. But in true Sunniva fashion, she did the entire story justice with an ending that I never really saw coming. Honestly, one of her best books to date.

So Good by Nicola Rendell

AP new - synopsis.jpg

On the roof of a house outside Truelove, Maine, master carpenter Max Doyle looks down through a skylight and sees the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on. She’s naked, she’s gorgeous, and everything about her is perfect, down to the ball-busting tattoo of a rose that wraps around her hip. But it isn’t just any woman making his knees buckle. It’s his best friend, Rosie Madden. And as he stands there, mesmerized and precariously close to toppling off the roof, he knows he’ll never, ever be able to look at her the same way again.

Rosie can’t help but notice that Max is suddenly acting very strange—lots of long stares, totally tongue-tied, and not at all like the slightly cocky hunk she’s proud to call her best friend. She can’t figure it out, until later that night when Max rescues her from the world’s worst date, challenges her to a game of pool, and shows her just exactly what she’s got him thinking about. Repeatedly.

But life is complicated. Rosie’s cat, Julia Caesar, wants to eat Max’s dog Cupcake for an afternoon snack. A dream job threatens to pull them apart. And another glance through the skylight changes everything, one more time. Yet try as they might, they can’t go back to being just friends, because falling in love with the one you’ve always adored?

It feels so good.
