RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW: Revelry by Kandi Steiner

Title: Revelry
Author: Kandi Steiner
Release Date: April 20, 2017
Add to TBR

From the bestselling author of Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey

Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.

She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.

Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.

Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.

He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.

Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.

 

I had just grabbed my oversized hat and slipped my sunglasses on when I spotted Anderson walking up the drive with a large trash bag slung over his shoulder. He wore a simple, black V-neck and distressed jeans, an outfit way too dark and hot for the heat. A light sheen of sweat gathered on his neck as he made his way toward my cabin, his eyes hidden behind all-black sunglasses.

“Change your mind?” I asked, not even fighting the grin on my face as I walked outside and leaned against the banister.

Anderson squinted up at me, his boots heavy as they hit each stair. “About?”

“Tubing?” I asked. That was why he was here, right?

“Oh.” He shook his head as he hit the top stair, shrugging the bag off his shoulders to hold it by the neck in one fist. “No, I have somewhere to be…” His voice trailed off, and even through the tinted shades of his glasses I felt his eyes on my chest. I’d strapped on my favorite boho print bathing suit and paired it with a dainty gold chain that wrapped around my neck once before dipping between my chest and crossing over my ribs.

He sniffed, holding the bag out toward me. “I just came to drop these off. My clothes. Well, the ones that could probably use a little TLC.”

My eyes lit up and I reached for the bag, but Anderson snatched it back, brows shooting up into his forehead.

“No frills, Wren.”

I threw my hands up in surrender. “I promise.”

He smirked, just slightly, and handed the bag over, tucking his hands in his front pockets.

“Are you sure you don’t want to come?” I asked, peering into the bag at my project before setting it just inside the cabin and locking the door behind me.

“I can’t,” he said, lips pressed together. He was tense, the muscles on his forearms tight as he glanced around at pretty much everything but me.

I opened my mouth to ask why but was cut off by the sound of a truck flying into my drive, tires sliding against the gravel.

Tucker was in the driver’s seat with Davie in the passenger. Sarah and Yvette sat in the back, laughing with their hands up as the truck skidded to a stop. They were both sprawled out on a pile of tubes, wearing bathing suit tops and tiny shorts.

All of their faces froze when they saw Anderson.

“Hey, you ready, Wren?” Tucker asked warily, his eyes moving from where Anderson stood in front of me, to me, and back again.

“Yeah, one sec!” I called back.

I turned to Anderson, but his eyes were hard on Tucker, jaw ticking under his skin. When he faced me once more, an anchor fell from my throat into the pit of my stomach, immobilizing me completely. Because even though I ‘d tried to convince myself I was wrong, I recognized the look in his eyes.

Possession.

And when his nose flared and he took one big step toward me, our chests brushing, his hand reaching out to rest almost imperceptibly on my hip, the anchor in my stomach exploded into flames, burning a desire so fierce I inhaled a toxic breath and didn’t let it go.

“Be careful, okay?” His eyes locked on mine just before he leaned in and swiftly kissed my cheek.

He turned on his heel and jogged down the stairs and past the truck. Sarah called his name, but he didn’t acknowledge her, just kept his gaze forward until he’d disappeared from view.

And then everyone looked at me.

 ~*~*TSC REVIEW*~*~

5 STARS

This is the second book of Kandi’s that I’ve read. It’s also the second book of hers that has reached into my chest cavity and take my heart hostage.
There are several reasons I love this book. First and foremost, the characters are close to their thirties, which I appreciate. Nothing against characters in their early twenties, but for this story, them being older makes it more believable.
Second, is the characters themselves. Anderson and Wren are complete opposites and almost exactly alike.  They both share a deep pain and guilt, and they will endear themselves to you. Then there’s Momma Von. As much as I like Wren and Anderson, Momma Von is my favorite, and honestly, everyone could use someone like her in their life.
Third is Kandi’s ability to weave a powerful, emotional, but not overwhelming story. Yes, it’s deep. Yes, it’s heavy at times. But it’s also so sweet, and so hopeful, and very relatable, no matter what stage of life you’re in. What it’s not, is full of fluff. There are no unnecessary words, no parts that don’t fit the perfect puzzle of this book.
This book is a beautiful example of following your dreams, even if that means taking the road less traveled.

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

Seduced
Suzannah Daniels
(Whiskey Nights, #5)
Publication date: April 11th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Landing a photo shoot with a hot lingerie model is every guy’s fantasy. And that includes Evan Mayfield. He expects nothing more than an interesting gig and a quick paycheck, but once the photographer starts snapping pictures, Evan realizes the job is going to be a lot harder than he thought. The sexy brunette with whom he’s posing is beautiful, intriguing, and a first-class ice princess. He should take the money and run, but he never could resist a good challenge.

Francesca Jones has sworn off men, which has given her time to focus on entrepreneurship. After settling down in the sleepy town of Creekview, she started her own lingerie business. Now she’s ready for the next step—launch an online shop for her designs, including a new line for men. But the fitness model she hired is making it difficult to concentrate with his warm hands and his penetrating gaze, and the last thing she wants is for him to discover that her life in Tennessee is nothing more than a façade.

Despite her efforts to keep him at bay, he melts her defenses, and after a night of seduction, she finds herself torn between keeping her secret and revealing the truth. Either way she goes, the consequences could be devastating.

SEDUCED is the fifth book in the WHISKEY NIGHTS series. Since each book focuses on a different couple, they can be read as stand-alones; however, since there are recurring characters, many readers may prefer to read the series in order for maximum enjoyment.

EXCERPT:

“How many times have you been in the car with a girl who threw her clothes out the window?”

“This is the first.”

“Exactly.” She dangled her bra out the window, hooking the strap with one finger.

“You might want to know there’s a car behind us,” I warned her.

She let the bra fly.

I barked out a laugh. If she wanted to make the night memorable, she’d certainly accomplished her mission.

“Shit,” I said. “It’s probably a preacher.”

I glanced at my totally naked girlfriend in the seat beside me, her dark hair whipping in the wind. I wanted to remember what she looked like in that moment.

And that was when I noticed a strange blue hue in the car. I glanced back up, checking my rearview mirror.

“And if it’s not a preacher, it could be the police.” Blue lights were approaching me. I hoped the police car would blow on by, en route to another call, but it quickly became apparent that wasn’t going to happen.

Francesca turned around and looked out the rear window. “Oh, shit,” she whispered. “I’m not wearing my seat belt.”

~*~TSC REVIEW~*~

4.5 STARS

I love Ker, and her ability to spin a soul-crushing tale. 

I literally read this book in one day. Couldn’t, wouldn’t put it down. 

This is technically is book 2 in a duo, so in order for you to fully understand what’s going on, you really should read Drawn to You first. That is where you meet Antonia, Fin and the rest of the gang. 

That being said, this book picks up where the first one left off, and questions you had at the end, are finally being answered. 

This book isn’t nearly as dark as some of the ones we’ve gotten from Ker, but don’t take that to mean that it’s all hearts and flowers. No, in true Ker fashion, there are plenty of twists, surprises and angst to leave your heart in your throat. I went through so many emotions during this read. 

There is no way to give a detailed review without giving things away, which is something I refuse to do.  I absolutely LOVE the way she concluded everyone’s stories – even if it wasn’t how I wanted it to end (but that’s just me being selfish!). 

Great set of characters brought together in a fantastic setting. I’m sad to say goodbye to them, but excited to see what she has up her sleeve next.

Coming Soon From Ker Dukey

Evi Devil.
Yes, that’s really my name.
The irony is not lost on me.
I was created from two evil souls and have the name to prove it.
Devil worshipers, perverts, murderer. Is all terms used to describe the parents I refuse to remember. My mind won’t allow me to.
And why would I want to?
One born of dirty blood running through her veins can never truly be clean from its murky hue.
No matter what they try to tell me happened in my past, my mind denies me access, therefore how can I know it’s true?
How can I believe that’s what I’m born from?
Glimpses of my past haunt me, the screams of terror echo in the silent darkness of my memories, trying to remind me that my Mother went from room to room butchering our family.
I’ve learned from scars that I suffered abuse and that my Father and siblings weren’t my Mother’s only victims.
Hearing what they tell me.
Reading the words printed in the papers. None of it can prepare me for what’s to come.
My biggest lesson is learning that some memories we suppress for a reason.

DEVIL.
A DARK SUSPENSE NOVEL

Release date: to be determined

Meet Ker Dukey

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bedtime stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so I thought it best that I tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made of light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

About Brooke Blaine:

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

She is the author of Flash Point, a romantic suspense standalone, as well as the co-author of the erotic series, A Desperate Man, with Ella Frank. The latter has scarred her conservative southern family for life, bless their hearts. Licked, a romantic comedy, will be released November 11th, 2015 and is the first in the L.A. Liaisons series.

If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find – just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.

BLOG TOUR & REVIEW: UNPROFESSIONAL by J. D. Hawkins

 

Unprofessional by JD Hawkins

Release Date: March 22nd

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Designer: Letitia Hasser from RBA Designs

Model: Christian Hogue

Blurb

What happens when the internet’s favorite playboy falls in love?

I have the best job in the world. Date beautiful women and write about it.

But I want to take it to the next level: instead of writing about my experiences make it into an online reality show.

But here is the catch. My boss wants me to share the show with a woman co-host. And he wants that woman to be my best friend and co-worker, Margo.

I’ll date beautiful women and she’ll date hot men. Sounds fair enough.

So now I have to watch her fake date hot men. I used to love going home with a different woman every night, but suddenly this isn’t as fun. Seeing Margo with anyone else is driving me crazy.

And the more time I spend with her working on the show, the less I want to keep our relationship in the friends’ zone. And the harder it is to stop myself from imagining her bent over the copier.

Things are about to get unprofessional.

EXCERPT:

 

“Thank god you live on the ground floor,” I say, as I rummage for her keys in her bag with one hand while keeping her from falling with the other. It’s not that I haven’t been to Margo’s place before, but when we hang out it’s usually at work functions or the occasional bar, and at the moment I can’t shake the feeling that I’m intruding a little.

“You know, you’re really fucking hot,” she slurs, giggling. My cock stirs at the brush of her lips so close to my neck, her warm breath against my skin. I have to shake it off.

“And you’re really fucking drunk,” I reply with a forced laugh, as the key finally catches and I kick the door open.

“No…I mean it,” she says as I step into her apartment, still holding her in my arms. “You’re like…the most beautiful man.”

“That’s very sweet of you,” I say, as I open a few wrong doors (closet, bathroom) until I find her bedroom. I walk in and lay her down on the bed, then pull away, setting her bag on the night table. “You should probably just rest a bit, let it pass.” I unlace her boots and ease them off gently, setting them on the floor before straightening up to go. This feels familiar, although I haven’t carried a too-drunk Margo home from a party and put her to bed since our undergrad years. “You need anything? Water, or—”

“Yeah.” Margo smiles.

“What?”

Instead of answering, she mischievously beckons me closer. I look at her, dress rolling up around her thighs, twisting her body up in the sheets, my imagination starting to whirl a little.

“Come here!” she yelps impatiently.

This could mean trouble—the problem is, I like trouble. I groan and go nearer to the bed.

“Closer,” she giggles, and I’m taken with the smile, the way she grinds into the bed…

“What?”

Her hand pulls on my shirt, her smile goes and instead her mouth is open now, weakened like she’s preparing to kiss me. I could so easily fall into her here, so easily bring my mouth onto hers, put my own hands under her clothes. I can almost taste her, appetite stirring…

Except being a real man doesn’t just mean knowing when to make a move, it also means knowing when you shouldn’t.

“Nice try,” I say, pulling back.

Margo laughs and pounds her fists onto the bed with disappointment.

“But I need to see what’s under your shirt. You still got those Grand Canyon abs, I bet.”

“Ok. That’s my cue to go,” I say, half-out the door. “See you tomorrow.”

“No! Come on! Please! I remember the view was fucking amazing. Just a little peek. A tiny little peek for old time’s sake. Come on, Owen! Don’t be an asshole. You know you want to show it off.”

I look back at her, hand on the doorknob, and find myself laughing.

“Happy now?” I say, pulling up my shirt a little way.

Margo screams and falls back onto her pillows laughing.

“I knew it! Just as perfect as that night you got locked out of the girl’s dorm,” she says, as I close the door and leave.

When I get back to my car, I’m still smiling.

 

~*~TSC REVIEW~*~

5 STARS

So, here’s the thing. I have like, three, of J.D.’s books on my TBR, but this is the first one of his that I’ve read. Which technically, makes him a new-to-me author. I know, shame on me, right?

How on earth I waited so long to introduce him into my repertoire,  I’ll never know. This book has reeled me in. 

I will say, I think that this was a great first book of his for me to read. It introduced me to his writing style, which I love. Owen is  the typical, unapologetic, alpha bad-boy, manwhore, who happens to be a genuinely decent guy. He makes no bones about who he is, or what he wants. He has a best friend he works side by side with whom he adores, and plenty of women to keep him busy with his dating blog. 

Margo is sweet, beautiful, and unfortunately for her, has a horrible time picking boyfriends. Her longest relationship is with Owen, who happens to be her best friend. She likes her job, but her dream is to write in New York, leaving LA and all the bad juju behind. 

This book is a fabulous friends to lovers tale that will make you swoon. It’s told in dual POV, which is my favorite, and the flow of the story is very smooth. Owen and Margo are two wonderful characters, and there are some good secondary supporters too.  There is no violence, no suspense, just good old fashioned erotic romance between two people you want to be together. There are also some very funny parts that had me chuckling out loud. I love that the sex is hot, but it’s not the whole book.  Unprofessional is an overall complete package, wrapped up in a great plot.  

This may have been my first J.D. book, but it definitely will not be my last. Those books of his on my TBR will very shortly be moved to my read list.

EXCERPT:

When I finally plucked up a bit of courage, I peeped out of the curtains to see Kieran throwing stones at the window.

“Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair,” he mock shouted, when he caught my eye. I opened the window to whisper loudly back at him.

“Are you high?” I asked. “Why didn’t you just ring the doorbell or call me?”

“I thought this would be more romantic,” he said.

“If I ignore the fact that my nipples probably have frostbite, I am feeling romanced,” I replied. He looked pained. “What’s wrong?” I asked.

“You said ‘nipples’ and now I can’t think of anything else,” he replied, making me smile.

“Now I’m down here, what’s the chances of seeing an accidental nip slip?” he asked.

“Depends,” I replied.

“On what?” he asked.

“What’s in the bag?” I said.

“Hot chocolate and warm doughnuts,” he said, holding up the bag as if to barter.

“Well, I would have said slim to none, but fresh doughnuts might have just tipped the odds in your favour,” I replied.

“Yesss!” he said, fist bumping the air in victory.

I closed the window and ran to buzz him in. He bounded up the stairwell, his heavy footsteps echoing loudly in the hallway. When he got to my door, he looked me up and down, taking in my short royal blue, silk pyjamas. Dropping the sack, he speared his hands into my hair and pulled me into a kiss that had me melting. Kier didn’t kiss with just his lips; he did it with his whole body. Without shoes on, I was tiny in comparison, but inside of the cage of his huge arms, I felt protected and safe. Despite his size, his lips were so gentle. He didn’t treat me like I was fragile, but like I was precious, as though every touch was one that he was experiencing for the first time and memorizing for later.

Feeling bold, I traced the seam of his mouth with my tongue, and when he parted his lips and touched his tongue against mine, I groaned. Every sensation was too much, and not enough. Breathless, he pulled away from me to nuzzle his face in the crook of my neck. I reached up and gently stroked the short hair at the back of his neck, making him sigh.

Full Blurb

 

He rejected her. She loathes him. Now they have to fool everyone and pretend they actually like each other.

Tanner Harris has been busy shagging his way through the ladies of east London, but getting caught by the paparazzi buck-naked with his trouser snake in his hands means he’s sowed his last wild oat.

Dr. Belle Ryan once thought Tanner Harris was the perfect kind of bearded bad boy she needed to relieve a bit of stress after her intense job as a surgical fellow, but an icy cold rejection from London’s sluttiest footballer puts the two at each other’s throats.

Fate and a favour conspire to put Tanner and Belle back in each other’s paths and they’re forced to do a lot more than get along to save face and their careers.

Rage turns to passion and tempers run sizzling hot when they realise they aren’t just falling for each other—they’re jumping head first. And neither have the endurance to keep their hands to themselves.

EXCERPT

 

I cheers my beer with hers and chug the rest down. I drop the bottle and begin swirling Indie around in a childish spin that sends us both flying in different directions and crashing to the ground. Hot, sweaty hands wrap around me and pull me to my feet.

“Thank you, Good Samaritan,” I slur, turning to face my gallant saviour.

When my eyes glance up and focus, I’m stunned by the bearded vision before me. “You look like a guy I know!”

He clutches his hands firmly around my waist and holds me to him. “You look like a girl I want to know.”

I laugh half-heartedly and try to pull away.

“Are you trying to leave me, lass?” he slurs into my ear.

I frown and my head bobbles. “How could I leave you, Jesus? You’re God’s son…You’re everywhere.” I throw my hands out wide to punctuate my “everywhere” and attempt to stumble away.

He grabs me again, this time his hands dipping lower to my arse. My good mood evaporates instantly. “Hey!” I shout. “Watch your fucking hands!”

I attempt to shove him away, but he feels like one of those doors that you push when you’re supposed to pull. He doesn’t budge. He leans in close and whispers in my ear, “I’d like to put my hands on your tight little—”

Right when I’m about ready to punch the wank stain in his vile mouth, I nearly fall over as a strange momentum spins me away. The man’s hands are no longer groping me. They are now pinned deftly behind his back by no other than—

“Tanner?” I utter with a gasp, my hands covering my mouth at the shock of the scene before me.

“Shove the fuck off, you disgusting prat, before I turn your wrist into a pretzel.” Tanner pushes him into a nearby table, and the man almost topples over but catches himself before scurrying away without a look back.

Blue, angry eyes swerve to me. “Ryan,” Tanner growls, slicing a hand through his hair to get it off of his face. “I’ve texted you like twenty times.”

“I…I…I haven’t looked at my mobile in a while.”

“No fucking shit.” His bearded jaw is taut with anger. “I’m taking you home.”

He reaches out for my arm but I yank it away from him.

“No, you’re not.”

His shoulders rise and fall with a deep breath. “I’m taking you home. You’re completely pissed.”

My eyes narrow. “Of course I am. It’s Tequila Sunrise night.”

“I don’t give a fuck,” he snaps. “Let’s go.”

I shoot him a murderous look when a voice interrupts us. “I’ve got mine. You got yours?” I turn to see Camden holding a sleepy-looking Indie against his body.

Determination slices through Tanner’s voice. “I’ve got her.”

I turn to face him, stumbling a bit as I wag my finger in his face. “Hey, I am not yours!” Suddenly, Tanner bends over and I’m airborne for a second, landing heavily on top of his shoulder. “Are you fucking kidding me, Harris?” I begin pounding on his back but it’s to no avail. “I’m in a dress. My arse is hanging out for all of England!”

“Your arse was hanging out when you spread out on the floor a minute ago. I’m taking you home, Ryan. Even if you’re kicking and screaming.”

“You’re such an arrogant arsehole!” My hands stop their assault on Tanner’s backside in favour of covering my rump. This is mortifying. I hang my head and let my hair cover my face, praying like fuck I don’t see anyone I know. “I can’t believe this is happening.”

“Believe it, woman.” Tanner pauses at the door and turns his body so my head is facing a different direction. “Now, tell this nice man I’m not a rapist.”

A bouncer-looking bloke turns his head upside down to make eye contact with me. I mumble, “He’s not a rapist. Just a walking dead man.” I straighten a bit with my crescendoed scream. The bouncer lets out a hearty laugh that dumps hot coals into the pit of my belly. So not the reaction I was looking for.

He moves to let us pass and then Tanner drops me down in front of a cab. I ball up my fists and wallop him a few times. “I’m not a petulant child, you animal.”

He doesn’t even flinch.

I exhale in concession and fold myself in behind Indie and Camden. When we’re all in the cab and it begins moving, Tanner breaks the silence with a surprisingly jovial tone. “Well, did you all have a fun night?”

~*~ TSC REVIEW~*~

5 STARS

I have four words to describe this book:

Amy’s BEST BOOK YET.

Seriously. It’s that good. I LOVE a good sports romance, and I adored Challenge. I honestly didn’t think I’d like Tanner as much as Camden, but I like him SO much more! He’s just that little bit extra naughty that is irresistible.

Belle is my hero. She’s smart, curvy (THANK YOU AMY!!) and the type of crazy you want to have on your side, if you know what I mean.  She’s fiercely loyal to those she loves, and God help those she hates. 

These two together are nothing short of combustible. They are oil and water, complete opposites and that totally works for them.  They both have such deep souls that they never let anyone else see, and to see those souls revealed is a beautiful thing. 

In typical Amy style, there is plenty of light-hearted humor, and delicious sexiness in this book. The epilogue alone will have you in stitches (that pun is for you Amy!)

You CAN read this book without reading Challenge first, but I don’t recommend it. I love that in this book, there are recurring cameos of her characters from her London Lovers series. (I also highly recommend those, too!)

Two Harris brothers down, two more to go. I can’t wait to see which one she brings us next!

Excerpt:

“Are you saying it was my fault?” This corner was a bad idea, because now
he’s pressed against me, his tall body encompassing the small space.

His dark eyes bore into mine. “Yes,” he says, matter of factly.

He’s refusing to whisper. What part of library does he not understand?

“Shhh.” I peek around him and the aisle is still clear.

His arms cage me in, and he eliminates every inch of space between us. “Do
not shush me again, Miss Murphy,” he dips his face down, close to mine,
“unless you want a repeat of earlier.”

Well, I do want a repeat, but it’s probably a very bad idea.

He leans close to my ear, brushing the hair away with his nose. “You want
me to whisper, Miss Murphy? How’s this?”

Goosebumps break out along my skin from the sensuous feel of his lips
against the shell of my ear. This is so bad. So bad. Anyone could come
around this corner and find us. And how did we get to this point? My
fingers grip the edge of his pockets when he whispers again, “Do it once
more and you’ll feel the sting of my hand on your ass, again.”

A soft “shhh” escapes me before I can stop it.

His teeth clamp down on my earlobe. “Fuck,” he whispers in my ear. “You
probably shouldn’t have done that.”

 

~*~TSC REVIEW~*~

5 Stars

Here’s why I love this book:

Besides the fact that Houston Dale is smoking hot, he’s a deeply wounded soul, and I think Logan did an amazing job capturing Houston’s pain. My heart hurt for him, that’s how well written he is. 

Marley is sweet, shy, humble. She is truly one of those people who is beautiful both inside and out, and has no idea. 

Their chemistry is off the charts. I like the teasing, and the banter between these two. Most of all, I really enjoyed the way these two helped each other.

This was a very quick, easy, STEAMY read, but it also tugs at  your heart strings. Study Me is the complete package. 

 

 

 

Author Bio:

Logan Chance enjoys the simple things in life. Star Wars, music, and pretty
girls. Always in trouble at school, he was made to copy the dictionary
while the others played. This began his word fascination.

With a love of words he then realized he loved stringing those same words
together to create stories to inspire all.

From Boston, and relocated to Florida, he lives out his days writing,
reading, and avoiding the beach.

Not afraid to tell it how it is, Logan is definitely a man of his own.

 Synopsis

She wasn’t part of my original plan for revenge, but one glance at her and
I was entranced. I followed her for weeks, observing her habits. I’ve been
in her apartment numerous times, learning anything and everything I can
about her. She’s become an obsession and I’ll do whatever it takes to make
her mine.

It’s only a matter of time before I have her where I want her…

on her knees and at my mercy.

Soon, there will be no secrets between us.

Excerpt:

Sobs fill the silence of the room. “Dad, leave mom alone,” I shout, pushing
on his chest and shoving him back a couple of feet. Like a tenacious pit
bull after a chew toy – this fucker just keeps coming.

Each time he comes back harder, finally snaking by me. Gripping her upper
arm in his meaty fist, he digs his fingers deep into her skin, and uses his
other arm to block me.

Cries from the pain and the fear he instills mix with the stench of alcohol
emanating from his body. His other hand goes to her neck, gripping under
her chin. The shriek piercing my ears is cut off when he squeezes.

Her face changes color.

Red. Then purple. Finally, heading into the blue family. Blue’s always been
my favorite color, but I can’t say I’ve ever seen this exact shade before.
It’s the color of sadness and the ocean of tears my mom has cried over this
asshole.

Everything happens fast. Her eyes open wide and bulge as the pressure of
his fingers increases.

She can’t breathe and I’m paralyzed standing behind him, watching it
happen.

Transfixed with fascination, I stare. Her eyes lock on me, her love shining
through the agony she’s experiencing. The terror and pleading in her eyes
fades to acceptance.

She knows this time she’s going to die.

Tears flow uncontrolled down her cheeks and a sense of relief washes over
me.

This is the last time he’ll ever make her cry.

~*~ TSC REVIEW~*~

5 STARS

I LOVE Jacob.

Ok, let me clarify. I love Jacob’s writing.  I don’t know how he does it, but he combines the perfect amount of sweetness, suspense and sex, in one glorious story.

Zack is from Jacobs previous novels, and while this book is technically a stand alone, I HIGHLY recommend reading Quake, Quiver and Delve prior to this. It will only help enhance your Zack experience, I promise!

Zack is a complicated character that you will have a deep love/hate relationship with. He’s nothing short of a monster, but you catch these glimpses of good, and you almost WILL him to change his ways. 

Lana is a beautiful soul. She’s sweet, shy, and brilliant. She’s new to Boston and her only friends are her bosses and their significant others. She carries around a secret, and it’s a soul crushing one. 

Lana and Zack become neighbors, and this is where you see their relationship unfold. There are twists  and surprises along the way. There are sweet moments, and lots of steamy moments. 

What I love about this book is after everything you find out about Zack, his story is one of redemption. And after everything you find out about Lana, her story is one of hope. These two total opposites belong together. They bring out the best in each other.

I haven’t read a book by Jacob that I didn’t love, but I do believe that this one is my favorite. I’m always a sucker for the broken bad boy, and Zack is just that. I’m actually sad that his secrets are revealed because this means we won’t see any more of him.  

I will miss this group of characters, but I can’t wait to see which of Jacobs I get hooked on next.
