Blog Tour & Review-- Bleeding Love by Harper Sloan

Meet Liam & Megan in the newest stand alone
in the Hope Town Series by Harper Sloan!


(Stand alone)
I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.
Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.
Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.
He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.  


“Last chance,” he tells me with a wicked grin.  “And this time I mean last one, darlin’.  We take this step and make no doubt about it, you will be mine.  You give me this and I fucking promise you that I will never make you regret taking that step.  You ready to jump from that chapter you’ve been skimming through and skip into mine?”

I give him a smile, one that is full of confidence and not the least bit unsure as the words that he had told me weeks before come back between us.

“I’m ready.”

“Fuck,” he groans.  “Buckle up, baby.”

My smile doesn’t slip for a second.  Not when I pull my belt across my chest.  Not when he slams the door and races to his own.  It grows wider when he slams the truck in drive and fishtails back onto the path that will take us back toward town.  It isn’t until his big hand reaches out and takes my leg in his strong hold that my smile slips slightly, but it only slips because my head falls back and I whimper and try to rub my legs together to ease the ache between them.  I lose the smile completely when my mouth drops open and that whimper turns into a loud whine as his long fingers dance up my legs until he slips beneath the hem on my shorts and pushes my panties to the side, pressing against my clit in sure movements that have me panting in seconds.

“Fucking drenched,” he grounds out through his tightly clamped teeth.

I roll my head against the headrest and look across the cab at his face.  His finger dips from my swollen clit and as he drops his hand lower, his wrist twists slightly so that when he gets there his finger slides deep inside me.

My legs spread instantly when his thick finger fills me and I hear his rumbled groan fill the space around us as he slides his finger as deep as his position allows before pulling it back, then repeating his movements until I can feel myself soaking his hand.  If he keeps this up, I won’t last.  He adds a second finger and my hand digs into the door and I reach out, wrapping my other around his forearm and choke on shattered breaths when he thrusts his fingers so deep, I feel like I’ve been electrocuted as he hits that spot that has me panting, whimpering and begging incoherently.

“Please, Lee, please,” I pant.  How I formed those words, I’ll never know.

“Fuck,” he snarls, the sound making my arousal spike even higher. 

“You’ll call me that when I’m so deep inside you my balls will be soaked with this sweetness.”

His fingers curl and I pant, my hand cramping around the force of my grip.

“Please, oh God.  Not without you, please.”

I pray he understands my plea and when he curses, I know he gets me.  His hand leaves my pants and I cry out, causing him to spit out a string of curses that would make a sailor blush.  His leg slams down and I feel the truck pick up speed as I watch him take his fingers to his mouth and lick every drop of my wetness from his skin.

“Holy shit,” I exhale.

“You’re getting my mouth first, darlin’.  That wasn’t enough of a taste and fuck me, I’m starved.”

I say nothing, just continue to feel like my heart is about to slam from my chest as I continue to shift my legs back and forth in attempt to ease the burn he’s lit between my legs. 


"I know I won't let her go without a fight. And it will be a fight. That I'm sure of. But it's also one that I know I'm ready to take on. I know what I want. I know who I want....Not only am I fighting for someone that can't see throught the shadows to find the rope I'm holding to pull herself off rock bottom, but I'm also fighting the ghosts of her past that I'm not sure will let her go long enough to make that climb."

This book. THIS BOOK! I think I need a minute......
I think I'm ready now.

To say that I've been waiting for this book is an understatement. I've been DYING for this book! And Harper did not disappoint!!!

Liam and Megan's story is a beautiful one. You start off with these two people that are completely attracted to each other, but it goes deeper than that.

"I know I've finally found her. I've been searching for her for as long as I can remember. That person that would make my heart beat faster."

Liam Beckett. He was raised to fight for what you want and to love hard. When Megan walked into his life, he knew he was a goner. Add in her adorable daughter, Molly, and it was like his prayers had been answered.

But this wouldn't be an epic love story if they just jumped willingly into his arms, now would it?!

"I was stuck in those shadows--that cold place where I was just existng and not living--Molly being the only bright spot in my darkness."

Megan was dealt a horrible hand through the years. It seemed that when she took one step forward, she then went three steps back. She made it her life's goal to raise her daughter the best way she could with no distractions--or love.

Enter Liam Beckett.

"I'm okay, Liam"
"Not yet, but you will be."

I can not tell you how many times Liam made me swoon! The things he did and said to Megan were beautiful! Just when you thought he couldn't possibly do more for Megan and Molly, he did it...and then some.

Megan's story is heartbreaking to say the least. Can I be her friend?! I want to hug her and tell her that she's amazing! She's such a great mother, but she's forgotten what it feels like to just...feel

"I want that. I want this. I want you both. Please tell me you can see that."
"I see it."
"You see what?"

Now I must take a moment for this important announcement....
Liam Beckett is a cop on the streets and a freak in the sheets!

That man and what he does with his words, hands, body, mouth....Geez, is it warm in here?! *grabs fan, cools down*
Okay, I'm back:)

This was just perfection! It was everything I had hoped (and knew) Liam and Megan's would be. Harper really can do no wrong in my opinion. 

This story was filled with so much love, acceptance, forgiveness, and the strength to move forward. 
Way to go, Miss Sloan! You've done it again!

Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
