NOW LIVE: Tycoon by Katy Evans

Tycoon

by Katy Evans

Tycoon

He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.

Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.

That man is gone.

In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.

He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.

The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.

It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.

I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.

And he doesn’t.

Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.

Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.

He’s assessing every piece of me, to the point I’ve never felt so bare.

I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.

Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.

Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.


Tycoon is Katy Evan’s latest office contemporary romance standalone. It is not your usual boss and employee relationship. Aside from a scalding-hot chemistry, Aaric and our mystery girl (I’m not sure if I’m allowed to share her name, sorry!) had a past that makes everything so intense. Welp, I won’t say anything more but read it, read it, read it!

**Five-star review will be up on Friday, June 23rd!

White Hot (Hidden Legacy #2)

HL2Nevada Baylor has a unique and secret skill—she knows when people are lying—and she’s used that magic (along with plain, hard work) to keep her colorful and close-knit family’s detective agency afloat. But her new case pits her against the shadowy forces that almost destroyed the city of Houston once before, bringing Nevada back into contact with Connor “Mad” Rogan.

Rogan is a billionaire Prime—the highest rank of magic user—and as unreadable as ever, despite Nevada’s “talent.” But there’s no hiding the sparks between them. Now that the stakes are even higher, both professionally and personally, and their foes are unimaginably powerful, Rogan and Nevada will find that nothing burns like ice…

Shacking Up

Shacking Up

Ruby Scott is months behind on rent and can’t seem to land a steady job. She has one chance to turn things around with a big audition. But instead of getting her big break, she gets sick as a dog and completely bombs it in the most humiliating fashion. All thanks to a mysterious, gorgeous guy who kissed—and then coughed on—her at a party the night before.

Luckily, her best friend might have found the perfect opportunity; a job staying at the lavish penthouse apartment of hotel magnate Bancroft Mills while he’s out of town, taking care of his exotic pets. But when the newly-evicted Ruby arrives to meet her new employer, it turns out Bane is the same guy who got her sick.

Seeing his role in Ruby’s dilemma, Bane offers her a permanent job as his live-in pet sitter until she can get back on her feet. Filled with hilariously awkward encounters and enough sexual tension to heat a New York City block, Shacking Up, from NYT and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting, is sure to keep you laughing and swooning all night long.

 

Sad Girls

Sad Girls

“Your first love isn’t the first person you give your heart to—it’s the first one who breaks it.”

Sad Girls is the much anticipated debut novel from international best-selling author Lang Leav. A beautifully written and emotionally charged coming of age story, where young love, dark secrets, and tragedy collide.

School is almost out for Audrey, but the panic attacks are just beginning. Because Audrey told a lie and now her classmate, Ana, is dead. Just as her world begins to spin out of control, Audrey meets the enigmatic Rad—the boy who could turn it all around. But will their ill-timed romance drive her closer to the edge?

Treasure Me (One Night with Sole Regret #10)

ONWSR10

He’s trapped by his past…

Just after Sole Regret’s soulful guitarist Kellen Jamison traded his five-years of abstinence for a tying good time with a beautiful classical composer, his past comes back to haunt him once again. Unsure if he’ll ever really move on, especially with his departed fiancée’s pregnant doppelganger hanging all over his best friend, Kellen must decide who he treasures most—his talented new lover, the woman he swore to love beyond death, or someone he never expected to want.

She’s blinded by her future…

Dawn O’Reilly is well on her way to her happily ever after. Her latest composition is making waves in Hollywood, and opportunity is practically knocking her door off its hinges. She’s met the man of her dreams, and they click on such a deep level that she knows he’s worth the fight—even if all he’s fighting are ghosts. But with her own success pulling her from Kellen when he needs her most, can she ever really be his treasured one? Or will someone else take the coveted spot in his heart?

Trophy Wife by Alessandra Torre

Trophy Wife

Trophy Wife

After finishing college with student loans, Candace Tapers’ dream of using her degree goes up to flames when the reality of finding job seemed fruitless. Now, Candace works the pole to make ends meet. Until he met Nathan Dumont. He needed a wife. She needed money. It was a perfect contract but secrets can’t be hidden forever. 

I thought I was trading a strip club for a mansion and Ramen noodles for caviar. I did not realize I was selling my soul to the devil.

I’ve read a lot of Alessandra Torre’s books and Trophy Wife had her style written all over it. It has the perfect mix of romance, eroticism and suspense. I had a hard time putting this book down because every chapter leaves me hanging. Her characters gave off the same feels like the ones in Black Lies. Personally, I don’t think it’s a bad thing. Candace and Nathan were just perfect for this story.

I love how demure and sassy Candace can be. She dealt whatever hand life gave and made grueling choices in expense of her own well-being. Candace may have a few moments but she put her own happiness first in the end. I had mixed feelings regarding Nathan. Was he a knight in a dark horse? Or the villain hiding behind a handsome face? He was so frustrating. One minute I was falling for him, the next I’m plotting all the ways to kill him. I had a hard time forgiving him for what he made Candace do chapter 30. However, my heart cries out to them both at the end. Their love is just so passionately explosive.

I was expecting a more dramatic scene than what happened in chapter 52. My gosh I was so frustrated with them! I want to slap a bitch. It was like the blissfully happy few chapters never happened. I need Nathan’s POV of those moments. I have lots of questions with the other characters. Like, you know, Drew? I’m curious what happened with him after. Nonetheless, I am so incredibly happy I read this book. It is an excellent read if you’re in the mood for some romantic erotica and just curl up in bed.

The Wright Boss

by K.A. Linde

I’ve always had one rule:

Don’t mix business and pleasure.

But then Landon Wright comes home to his family’s construction company with a broken back and a beaten heart and ends up as my new sexy boss. As the office gets heated, I’m thinking about throwing the rulebook out the window.

If only there weren’t a million reasons this could never work.

We may have shared a single perfect kiss, but I can’t let our intense connection cloud my judgment. Not with everything I’ve worked for on the line.

Dating your boss is so very, very wrong…even if he feels so Wright.

Dating-ish (Knitting in the City #6)

KITC6
There are three things you need to know about Marie Harris:
1) She’s fed up with online dating,
2) She’s so fed up, she’s willing to forego the annoyance and consider more creative alternatives, and
3) She knows how to knit.
After the most bizarre and irritating first date in the history of human kind, Marie is looking for an alternative to men. With the help of her friends, she quickly identifies a few possibilities:

Need a cuddle? Use a professional cuddler. Need affirmation? Get yourself a life coach. Need an orgasm? Try orgasm meditation! Why does she need the hassle of a romantic partner when she can meet all her needs with paid services?


But then her irritating date resurfaces. And he’s not at all the person she thought he was. And he suggests a different—and crazier—solution to her dilemma . . .

As everyone knows (or will soon come to realize), traditional relations between humans are a thing of the past. Robots are our future. And if robots are our future, then why do we need other people at all?
The Name They Gave Us
Lucy Hansson was ready for a perfect summer with her boyfriend, working at her childhood Bible camp on the lake. But when her mom’s cancer reappears, Lucy falters—in faith, in love, and in her ability to cope. When her boyfriend “pauses” their relationship and her summer job switches to a different camp—one for troubled kids—Lucy isn’t sure how much more she can handle. Attempting to accept a new normal, Lucy slowly regains footing among her vibrant, diverse coworkers, Sundays with her mom, and a crush on a fellow counselor. But when long-hidden family secrets emerge, can Lucy set aside her problems and discover what grace really means?

The Red by Tiffany Reisz

The Red

the-red

*ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

Mona Lisa St. James will do anything to fulfill the promise she made in her mother’s deathbed. Anything includes spending a year in the mysterious Malcolm’s bed to save the art gallery, The Red. In every night tryst with Malcolm brought her new experience and and feelings she shouldn’t explore. When the time comes would she able to let go? Or would she be sucked in the world Malcolm showed?

Is it hot in here?

This book is the perfect summer read. Seriously, this is so sizzling hot Mona and Malcolm gave new meaning to erotic fantasy. Their chemistry is off the charts from the very start. I couldn’t put it down, I finished in under three to four hours in one sitting. I don’t think this is what The Original Sinners (TOS)  readers expected but I loved it all the same! I love the art and history in this book. My knowledge of art is not extensive but I didn’t get lost because Ms. Reisz explained a great deal about the artists and the pieces.

Mona changed a great deal. She’s not a prude but she wouldn’t have walked the dark path if she hadn’t met Malcolm. It was interesting to watch her cave and let society’s conventions be damned. She was stronger and more confident than they first met. Malcolm Fitzroy is the best English rake I ever met. He is not only wholly inappropriate but totally unrepentant too. He played a lot of games without a care in the world but his desires. If only all men were that straight forward to what they want, women wouldn’t have to trouble with playing game with the heart.

The ending kinda blindsided me. I was expecting a very different ending for Mona and Malcolm. I mean, I fell in love with Malcolm so it’s fair to say that I want a happy ending for all. Actually, I didn’t expect the mystery behind everything about Malcolm. But he is a cheeky bastard, he lined up all his ducks in the end. I got over it pretty quickly once I saw the fun and hilarious (and HOT) side of it. I should know better than expect a conventional story from Tiffany Reisz.

There you go, I can’t say more or I’m gonna spoil you guys. I want to talk about another character, but I’m not sure if I’m allowed to because it will be a spoiler too. Anyway, The Red is coming on July 11, 2017. Don’t forget to pre-order!

BLOG TOUR: Tortured by Nicole Williams

Tortured

Tortured

“It’s been six years. Everything’s changed. I have. You have.” My eyes lifted. “Why? Why are you trying to win me back?”

He exhaled, his lips parting. “I’m going to win you back.”

When his hand slid around the bend of my waist, winding behind my back, I jerked. His touch was different tonight, hungry, determined. My head clouded, blocking out reason or letting it surface to the top, one or the other.

“I married him,” I whispered even as my hand found his chest.

“But you belong to me.”

My eyes closed as he bowed me against him. I wasn’t sure how two bodies that had been as broken as ours could be so strong when joined. “How do you know?”

“I can see it in your eyes. Every time you look at me.” His other hand lifted to my chin, tipping it until our eyes connected. His brow rose slowly, like I was proving his point right that very moment.

“That’s a confident statement.” My voice shook, but my body felt steady. Unwavering.

“It’s the truth.”

My chest was moving so hard, it brushed his with every breath. What was I doing? Where had I found myself? The man holding me had died only to be resurrected six years later. It was too late, but it wasn’t over.

No matter what, Brecken Connolly and I would never be over.

“Twenty-six days,” I said slowly. “That’s all I have to give you. That’s all I have to give. Four weeks. Once he’s back, you know the way it has to be.”

His face broke, but his hold didn’t budge. “It’s not enough.”

My fingers curled into his shirt, looking for some way to hold on to him. “I know.”

His other arm suddenly looped around me and he lifted me off the ground, his grip going around my backside when my legs tied around him. “But a fucking eternity wouldn’t be enough either, so it’ll just have to do.”

He carried me through the sand and up the stairs of the cabin, then he propped me against the wall so he could open the screen door. Something slipped out of my mouth when he flexed his hips into mine.

“Told you it wasn’t a morning issue,” he whispered in my ear, but I could hear the smile in his voice. “Just a Camryn one.”

He made the same motion with his hips, applying a little more friction this time, causing a louder sound to echo from my lungs.

Opening the screen door as silently as he could, he carried me inside.

“You can set me down, you know?” I whispered.

“I know,” he said, his arms tying tighter. Once all of the lights were off, the cabin closed up for the night, he padded down the hall.

“You know where you’re going?”

His head nodded beside mine. “I’ve always known.”

My hands went behind his neck. His skin was warm and familiar. “And where’s that?”

He exhaled against my skin as he closed the bedroom door. “Toward you.”

He set me down once he’d untied my legs from around his waist, and he took a few steps back. He stared at me for a moment then reached for the lamp on the dresser.

IMG_2723

“What are you doing?” I asked.

“Turning on the lights.”

I watched him flip on another. “Why?”

“Because I want to see you. Because I want to watch your face as I move inside you. Because I want to see your skin flush when I make you come.” He flipped on one more light, then all of his attention turned to me. “Because I want to see everything.”

My heart took off as I imagined being intimate with him with every light in the room on.

My body wasn’t the same one he’d left. It had carried a burden; it bore the scars of a shattered soul and a broken body. “I don’t want you to see me. Not like that. In the dark, you can imagine the way I was before.”

When I reached for the closest lamp to switch it off, he stopped me. “I don’t want to imagine.” His hand curled around mine, guiding it away from the lamp. “I want the real thing. I want the real you.”

“You’ve seen my body. You know what I look like beneath all of this.” I motioned at the fresh clothes hanging off of me, covering me from my wrists to my ankles to my neck.

“When I look at you, I see beauty and strength, and the one person in the world who gives me a reason to live and a reason to die.” He drew me to him, his face creased in lines of concentration. “That’s what I see when I look at you.”
