tag17My name is Hemy Knox and I’m a fucking heartbreaker . . . I’ve hurt the one person that means the most to me in life; the only woman I have ever fucking loved. I let the drugs, alcohol and wild life take over; consume me. I got her where I wanted her and ripped her fucking heart out. Since then, I’ve spent countless nights having dirty, meaningless sex with a multitude of people; only leaving them wanting and begging for more with no regrets. Some may even call me the devil; soulless. They look and judge, but there is one thing they don’t know; no one does. I want more than this life of stripping and sleeping around; the never ending party. I want love and everything that comes with it; that high that never ends. The problem is . . . I only want it with her. Onyx. She refuses to be mine . . . again. She’s smart and it’s a mother fucking pain in my ass; guarding her heart while ripping mine right out of my chiseled chest. I can’t say that I blame her. I always was a dumb ass when it came to the emotions of a woman, especially her. She wants to see me suffer as much as I made her; watch me wither and fucking die at her feet. She wants to crush me until I’m no longer breathing and I will let her, because it hurts far less than not having her as mine. I will stop at nothing to make her mine again. The pain only drives me harder; feeding my fury and giving me a reason to live . . . her. ***Author's note*** Due to strong language and a very high amount of sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. This is #2 in the Walk Of Shame series of novellas that will all be STANDALONE reads. This includes F/M and F/M/M so if you’re not into dirty sex scenes with filthy language, then this book is not for you. If you are . . . then, come meet the dirty boys of Walk Of Shame.
                                     20140725-092545-33945653.jpgtag19My eyes meet Hemy’s and they stay there as the man quickly leaves us alone. “Lock the door,” I demand. Hemy locks the door with a smirk and walks over to stand in front of me. “No touching,” I whisper. “Just yourself.” Hemy grabs me by the hips and sets me on top of the table before walking away and taking a seat on the other side of the couch. The clean side. His eyes watch me with heated desire as I open the rest of my bustier and pull it open. My hands reach up to rub my pierced nipples causing Hemy to growl and adjust his cock. “Mmm . . . you like that?” I run my hands in between my breasts until they reach the top of my panties. “I want you to come for me, Hemy. I miss seeing you lose it over me.” He watches me as I drop down on my knees and spread my legs apart. I slowly slide my hand down the front of my panties and run my finger up and down my wetness before sliding a finger inside. “Mmm . . . I’m so wet for you.” I push in and out. “Can you hear it, Hemy? Remember how much you loved the sound of me being wet for you?” “Fuck yes.” He undoes his jeans before pulling down the zipper. “Fuck yourself faster and rub your nipple with your other hand.” I do as he says while moaning out. “That’s it, baby. Do it for me.” I position myself so that I’m sitting on my ass with my legs spread eagle in front of his face. I want to be sure he gets a good view. Then I pull my panties to the side and bare my wet, throbbing pussy to him. “That’s it, Onyx.” He pulls his cock out of his jeans and I instantly notice the piercings. It has me so turned on that I have to stop all movement in fear of getting off too soon. He notices me eyeing his cock and grins. “Imagine these steel bars deep inside you as I pound into. You know I like it deep, baby.” His hand starts stroking his cock and I instantly notice the bead of pre-cum that drips off the head and onto his hand. I bring my hand down to touch myself again and move at the same rhythm as Hemy as he strokes himself. His eyes never stray away from my fingers shoving themselves deep inside me. I’ve needed this for a long time. Ever since leaving Hemy, reaching orgasm as become almost close to impossible. Just watching him get off as I get myself off is enough to make me want to explode. He starts stroking harder and faster while sucking on his lip ring. “I’m about to blow, baby. I wish it were inside of you.” His words set me off and I find myself shaking from the most intense orgasm I have had in years. A few seconds later, Hemy is blowing his load into his free hand, moaning out my name. We both look at each other while coming down from our temporary high.

Cover Revel for This Is Falling by Ginger Scott


Title: This is Falling
Author: Ginger Scott
Release Date: August 29, 2014


Synopsis

First, I had to remember how to breathe
Then, I had to learn how to survive.
 Two years, three months and sixteen days had passed since I was the Rowe Stanton from before, since tragedy stole my youth and my heart went along with it.
When I left for college, I put a thousand miles between my future and my past.
 I’d made a choice—I was going to cross back to the other side, to live with the living. 
I just didn’t know how.
And then I met Nate Preeter.

An All-American baseball player, Nate wasn’t supposed to notice a ghost-of-a-girl like me. But he did. He shouldn’t want to know my name. But he did. And when he learned my secret and saw the scars it left behind, he was supposed to run. But he didn’t.
My heart was dead, and I was never supposed to belong to anyone. But Nate Preeter had me feeling, and he made me want to be his. He showed me everything I was missing.
And then he showed me how to fall.

Tour: Game Changer by Collette West

Synopsis

Young, rich, and unaware of how seriously hot he is, Brooks Davison is tearing it up as the latest shortstop for the New York Kings, despite his tendency to blush whenever girls scream his name.

When a health scare forces his best friend, Kyle Roberts, off the team, no one can stomach the thought of replacing him, especially so close to the playoffs.

Until Kyle's sister, Sasha, steps in, convincing management to let her take his place. The idea of signing the first female player in Major League history proves too tempting for the Kings to resist.

Nevertheless, Brooks doesn't want any part of it. Sasha is Kyle's little sister, not some sideshow.

Yet when Kyle takes a turn for the worse, Brooks promises to do everything in his power to help Sasha win a championship for him. Because there's no way he's letting either of them down. Not now, not ever.




Excerpt

"Why are you freaking out about this?" she asks, rubbing the sleep out of her eyes. "I'll still be in the city. It's not like we're never going to see each other."

"It's better if I'm nearby...so I can keep an eye on you," I insist as she struggles to get up off the couch while I stubbornly hold on to her feet.

"So that's what this is all about?" She's angry with me, but I don't know why. "You made some kind of promise to Kyle that you’d be my watchdog. Well, you don't have to worry about it. Kyle thought that it’d only be for a couple of days. He never would've put you up to it if he knew how long I was going to be here. It's not fair to ask you to babysit me. I'll be fine. The Kings will make sure of it."

"And that's what worries me," I grumble, absently stroking her ankle. "I don't want you falling under their influence. You need someone in your corner who will watch out for you, someone who cares about you."
She whips around to face me. Shit. Did I really just say that? I can't control my thoughts whenever I'm around this girl. They just come tumbling out.

"What do you mean by that?" She levels me with her gaze, daring me to lie to her. "You care about me...how exactly? Like a friend? Like the sister you never had? Or something more?"

Damn. She doesn't mince words, does she? It’s her first night here and she's laying it all on the line. She wants answers. She deserves answers. But I'm not ready to give them to her yet. Not when we don't know what's going to happen to Kyle. He trusts me to look out for her. I can't let him down, especially once he hears about what she's gone and done.

But Sasha doesn't give me a chance to respond. I relax my grip on her legs, and she scoots them underneath her, drawing herself in next to me. She's so close. I can see the gold flecks in her eyes. Our lips are inches apart. It would be so easy to lean in and kiss her. I remember how she tasted that night on the beach, sweet and soft. I couldn't get enough of her.

Until Kyle interrupted us and told me to get the hell out of there before he beat the crap out of me.




About Collette West

Collette West grew up as somewhat of a jock-nerd hybrid. Entering the world three weeks premature, her dad nearly missed her birth because he had seats behind the dugout for a sold-out, highly-anticipated match-up between two of baseball's biggest rivals. Not to be outdone, her book-loving mom taught her how to read by the time she was three. A love of the game coupled with an appreciation for the written word were instilled in Collette's impressionable brain from a young age. No wonder her characters believe in the philosophy: sports + romance = a little slice of heaven.
Splitting her time between the Pocono Mountains and Manhattan, Collette indulges her inner fangirl by going to as many games as she can from hockey to baseball and downloading every sports romance novel in existence onto her iPad. When she's not clicking away on her laptop, she enjoys walking her dog in Central Park, satisfying her caffeine craving at the Starbucks on Broadway and keeping an eye out for Mr. Right. But above all, she loves dishing with her readers. Email her at collette_west@yahoo.com.

Add BURYING WATER on Goodreads!

  About BURYING WATER: The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away. Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him? Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried. The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

:::My Review:::

"For the first time in my life, I allowed a woman inside; I allowed myself to feel emotions that I had never felt before. I told myself in the beginning that it was wrong, and that everything would come crashing in around me and right I was."

Wow! This book was heartstopping!! After the huge cliffhanger you were left with after Ashley's Bend, all your senses were on high alert. Anything could happen! I didn't think Cassy could twist this story anymore. Hence, the knot;) hehe. She went above and beyond what I could have imagined. 

"I thought falling in love with a woman was the hardest thing that I have ever been through, but her betrayal was by far the worse to deal with. I knew I was risking my heart when I fell in love with Ashley, I didn't know I would be risking my entire life as well."

Ashley did the worst possible thing to protect Dominic. She pushed him away and she thought he would stay. How could he even think about coming back to her after everything she had done to him, his friends and his club? But Dominic wasn't backing down that easy. He needed answers as to why she did it. 

Against his better judgement, Dominic couldn't stay away from Ashley. He was drawn to her. He loved her. But with twists and turns and lies being thrown around, could he really believe that she truly loved him?

"How could I be feeling both lust and anger at the same time? Why is it that she had to invade every corner of my mind to where I was left with nothing but thoughts of her?"

To add more fuel to the fire, Ashley begins a friendship with Rownan. This does not sit well with Dominic. I'd be jealous too, Dominic! Rownan is freakin hawt!! Lawd child! Rownan becomes Ashley's saving grace in so many ways. But Dominic only sees competition.

"I can't stop hating her, but worst of all I can't stop loving her."

How long can Ashley keep Dominic away? How far will she go to keep him safe?

"I found it hard to breathe around him, but I found it harder to breathe without him."

I want to give Cassy a big ol' high five for this book! I love how the beginning went right back into where the first book left off. There was no beating around the bush. You jumped right back into the story. You find out secrets, you find out who's really the good guys and the bad guys and you see how powerful love really is. 

Hold onto your hearts! They might swell...or break.


"It's kind of symbolic too, don't you think? The Figure Eight- a never-ending path- an infinite loop- a circle in a race that can never be caught up in. That is how I have felt everyday since I have met you."

Cover Reveal for Rhett In Love by J. S. Cooper


Title: Rhett In Love
Author: J. S. Cooper
Release Date: September 23, 2014


✰★✰Rhett in Love Cover Reveal✰★✰

Rhett in Love is a new standalone book coming by New York Times Bestselling author J. S. Cooper. Rhett in Love is the sequel to the bestselling book, Rhett, but can be read without having read the first book in the series. Thanks to Louisa of LM Creations for designing the beautiful cover.



Rhett in Love Blurb

Rhett Madison and Clementine O’Hara were best friends for years before they decided to give dating a shot. Everyone around them thought they were perfect for each other, but neither one of them realized just how much their relationship would change once they got together.
 
They’d only been dating for a couple of months when they decided to move across the country and live together. Neither one of them were prepared for all the trials and tribulations they would face as a new couple living in sin, as Clementine’s Nanna called it.
 
Rhett’s still acting like he’s a bachelor and Clementine’s not sure if going from friends to lovers was the best decision they ever made. So they decide to enroll in a relationship course to see if they are meant to be together. Only it seems like Rhett’s more interested in the passionate side of their relationship, as opposed to the deeper more emotional side.
 
Hilarity and chaos ensues when Tomas and Jake come to visit and Rhett and Clementine are both faced with questions that could change their relationship status once again. Neither one knows what’s going to happen, but no-one ever said that the pathway from friends to lovers was going to be an easy one.  



The first book, Rhett, is now available:

Tiffany's Review of Rain by Christie Cote

Title: Rain (Rain #1)
Author: Christie Cote





Synopsis

Taylor Sullivan took her life for granted until she received news that would change her life forever. In a state of denial she met Kyle, who didn’t end up being what she expected. She wasn’t able to escape her new reality, but with his friendship, just maybe she could survive it.


My Review

"It's funny how one life-changing event could make you forget what happiness felt like."

What would you do if you received life-changing information? Would you accept it and move forward? Would you cry and shut the world out? For Taylor Sullivan, these questions were going through her mind the day she heard the word "leukemia". She was weeks away from turning 16. She had a full life ahead of her. She was happy. She had great parents, an awesome best friend and a decent boyfriend. How could this happen?

The day after she found out her diagnosis, she met the one person that would change her world forever. Who knew that just sitting on a curb in front of a stranger house would make your day a little brighter? Taylor didn't know Kyle, so it made it easy for her to open up and talk to him. She couldn't even tell her best friend or boyfriend about her news. He felt safe and he didn't treat her like she was fragile. He gave her a little ray of sunshine in her clouded world.

"There were kind, generous souls out there; it seemed rare to find-especially in guys my age."

After letting everyone close to her know, Taylor decides to jump right into treatment. The quicker they start, the quicker results will happen. 

"It was in my body, not a monster in the closet. No matter where I was or how long I kept my eyes shut, it would still be there, killing me until I got the treatment to kill it first."

With all the sick days, the medicine and the hair loss, there was one person that made each of  these days better...Kyle. He was there through it all with her. He became her saving grace. He was everything she never knew she needed.




Kyle, oh Kyle. I loved that boy! He's mysterious, but yet, you feel his love for Taylor. Who wouldn't love a guy that would stick by you through the worst possible moments of your life? Their relationship is just beautiful. For them being so young, they had to grow up so much in a matter of months. He needed her as much as she needed him. 

This book had funny moments, 'awww' moments and beautifully heartbreaking moments. I couldn't get enough of the pink highlights, iPod shuffles and lego houses. 



I recommend this book to everyone! Christie did a beautiful job with her first book! This is the first in a three part series, but it does not leave you with a cliffhanger. You are left feeling satisfied with the ending:). I see great things for this new author!! Remember the name Christie Cote! She's going places:)

"I can't stop from dying when that time comes, just like I can't stop the rain from falling, but I can live today with what makes me happy."

What happens when the girl who always ran the moment a relationship got serious meets The One? Will Aubrey be able to get Luka to see herOutside the Box he’s put her in?  
Excerpt
“Oomph,” I grunted into a hard chest as warm hands grasped my arms to steady me. I took a deep breath and a woodsy scent that was somehow both spicy and a little bit sweet hit my nose. I didn’t think I’d ever met a guy who smelled this good before.
“You okay?” a deep voice murmured.
“Yes,” I whispered as I looked up into green eyes, my hands resting against his chest.
“Good. Wouldn’t want to start my night off by mowing down defenseless women, now would I?” he asked as I moved away.
I couldn’t help the laugh that bubbled up at that since I’m the one who ran into him. “No, we certainly wouldn’t,” I said as I stepped into the elevator.
I watched his ass, lovingly hugged by his jeans, as he walked away with a couple of guys I hadn’t even noticed. And just like that, my libido jumped back to life. Holy fucking shit.
