HEARTBREAK FOR HIRE by Tabatha Vargo and Melissa Andrea

HEARTBREAK FOR HIRE IS LIVE!

I turn trusted housewives into adulterous whores.

Let’s face it, nothing lasts forever. She may have started out as your wet dream, but now she’s your ball and chain. Let me set you free.
I’ll turn your loyal lady into a lecherous liar.
I can give you the uncontested divorce you desire, end your impending engagement, or rid you of that clingy girlfriend.
Either way, you’ll be a free man.

 

My name is Rift, and men pay me to have affairs with their women. It’s my job to get caught. While unethical, my profession is easy. Hell, most days it’s fun. At least until I fall for the soon-to-be ex of my newest client.

STALK MELISSA ANDREA
I reached out to unzip the plastic
holding my dress, but just as I did, the door to the dressing room flew
open, and Dylan stood there looking back at me.
His eyes were wide with shock, as if he hadn’t expected me to be behind
the door, and then they dropped from my face and slid down my body in an
invisible caress.
I should have covered myself; I
should have screamed at him to get out, but I didn’t move or tell him to go.
The way he was looking at me, I needed that. I needed to feel beautiful and
desirable.
“What are you doing here?” I watched
him, his eyes a stormy blue.
His eyes devoured me, making me feel
uncomfortable. If Mitchell supposedly loved me and disliked what he saw when he
looked at me, then surely a man who didn’t love me would see me as even worse.
“The lady out front said the
bathroom was the last door on the right, but I’m guessing she meant the last
door on the left,” he said, not bothering to the hide the fact that he was
looking at my body.
I nodded, not sure what to say.
“I should apologize and turn around
and leave.”
I swallowed hard.
He didn’t leave.
Instead, he moved into the room and
quietly shut the door behind him.
“But you see, there’s a problem.”
“What’s that?” I asked.
He reached out, running a single
finger over my shoulder and down across my chest. “I can’t stop looking at
you.”
I folded my arms across my chest
now, feeling more exposed than I ever had in my life. His finger dipped into
the top of my folded arms and between my breasts.
“You’re covering yourself like a
woman who thinks she’s unattractive,” he said, moving close enough that his
whispered words ruffled the hairs on the
side of my face. “But the truth is, my cock’s hard just looking at you.”
I stiffened at his words.
No one had ever spoken to me like
that. No man had ever been so brazen, saying naughty words to me in such a
manner.
“How does that make you feel, Gwyn?”
He moved closer, his lips skimming my earlobe and making me bite my bottom lip.
I should have run out, but I was
half naked. And the truth was, I couldn’t move. My legs were stiff, and my feet
were rooted to the spot.
“How does it make you feel knowing
my cock is hard and throbbing for you?” He licked my lobe, and I shivered.
“Here you are, in your white bra and panties, looking so innocent and
corruptible … what’s an evil man like me supposed to do?”
“You’re not evil,” I said, finally
able to speak up.
My voice squeaked with my words,
making me blush even harder.
He leaned back, his brow lifting in
question. “You don’t think I’m evil?”
I shook my head. “Not even a little
bit.”
“I assure you I am.” Again, he
leaned forward, pressing his lips against my shoulder.
As if an automatic reflex, I tilted
my head to the side to give him more skin to explore.
“I’m jealous of the way the lace on
your panties is riding up your curvy hips and disappearing into the sweet space
between your thighs.” He kissed my shoulder once again, his breath striking the
side of my neck and filling my ear. “I want to be that lace, Gwyn. I want to be
resting inside your warmth.”

Dear God, he was good, and I was so very bad.

NEED YOU NOW by J. Kenner

NeedYouNow_ReleaseBlitz.whiteNeed You Now, the newest standalone in the Man of the Month Series by #1 New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner is LIVE!

3 - March - Need You Now

Charming smile. Wicked skills.

Meet Mr. March.

With his tousled hair, cocky grin, and surprising abs hidden under a conservative button-down, bartender Cameron Reed is no stranger to the attention of women.

He dates, but never gets serious, claiming that he’s too focused on his studies. But it’s not really school that preoccupies him; it’s sensual fantasies of his best friend’s sister.

Mina Silver might be absolutely off-limits because of her overprotective brother and father, but that doesn’t stop Cam from imagining the feel of her in his arms, the brush of his lips over her soft skin, or the sparks that would fly between them if he ever got her into bed.

But for Cam, the bonds of family and friendship are sacrosanct, and there is no way that he’d ever violate his friend’s trust. Or would he?

Because with love on the line, maybe it’s time for Cam to break a few rules.

Taking a risk never felt so right.

POISON KISSES by Lisa Renee Jones

A sexy STANDALONE novel featuring Seth from the Dirty Money series! It is not necessary to read the Dirty Money series prior to enjoying this book. POISON KISSES will be released as three novellas in back to back weeks on Feb. 6th, 13th, and 20th!
Title: Poison Kisses Part One

Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: February 6, 2018
Amanda Skye made me want her. She made me trust her. She made me love her. Then she betrayed me. And now, a madman brings us together again and before our battle with him is over, I will make sure that she never forgets my name: Seth Cage. The Fixer for The Brandon Family Empire, but to a covert CIA operation, I will always be The Assassin. And to Amanda, I will be the man who made her moan, sigh, and beg. And I will make her beg.

A Four StarReview of POISON KISSES Part 1

Lisa Renee Jones is a master at combining intrigue and suspense with her incredible alpha males. As Reader delve deeper into the enigma, Seth Cage, they will come face to face with a man who has a fierce sense of loyalty and a heart that goes deeper than even he thought possible. But when Seth finds himself working closely with the one woman who saw through his tough exterior and hardened heart, he vows to make her pay for the hurt and betrayal she caused.

 

Amanda Skye is a woman who loves with depth. She is compassionate and reserved within her own right, but that does not mean she is not fierce. The woman has her own secret weapon and will stop at nothing to stay alive. Facing the man who stole her heart in order to work together for this mission is proving to be difficult. Especially when the tension is at an all-time high.

 

Pulled by the betrayal of the past and tempted by the wickedly enticing chemistry that still prevails, Seth and Amanda are about to embark on a mission that may prove to be more than either bargained for. This fast-paced and well-crafted introduction to the Poison Kisses series will have you wanting part two immediately. There is more to this than meets the eye, and seeing how the two will battle the past and the present will have you turning pages on this alluring read.

Title: Poison Kisses Part Two
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: February 13, 2018
I loved her. She left me. She betrayed me but now it’s time to open the closed doors. I’ll tell her my secret if she tells me hers. Our history, is more than lies. It’s our story, and I will do whatever it takes to reveal it all. I’m the Assassin, She’s The Poison Princess. We’re going to kill the bad guys, but we’re still deciding if we’re enemies. The one thing for certain, is we’re both going to strip down and get bare.
Title: Poison Kisses Part Three
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: February 20, 2018
Those you love, know how to hurt you. Those you love, know what to hide, because they know what is unforgivable to you. Now that I know what Seth hid from me, I want the secret to be the lie. I don’t want to kill him. I don’t want to leave him. I guess that’s why they say there is a fine line between love and hate. I love and hate that man with such passion, that it damn near hurts. But now, as we face down our shared enemies, as we are lead right back to an explosive discovery about my family, and to the night Seth and I parted ways, we will both be exposed in every way. And it’s time for me to decide if I plan to love Seth Cage for the rest of my life, or kill him, before he kills me.
“I hate you, Seth Cage,” she proclaims in what I know to be an out-of-character emotional outburst that tells me I’ve rattled her.
And earns her my cool reply. “There’s a fine line between love and hate, sweetheart,” I say, but I don’t want her to hate me and it pisses me off. What is it about this woman that makes her my weakness? “I wonder if I missed the taste of poison on your lips, or did I just choose to ignore it?” And I need to know that answer. I close my mouth down on hers, my tongue sliding into her mouth, rough, angry, but she doesn’t respond. She doesn’t even touch me, and I won’t allow her that win. I fold her against me, cupping the back of her head, my tongue licking against hers until she finally fucking moans, and responds.
And damn it, she still tastes just as good as she did, just as right when she’s wrong, but at least I know now. Everything right about this woman will always be wrong, including the moment she bites my lips, drawing blood. “I still hate you,” she hisses.
Wiping my lip, I’m wildly aroused by what just happened, which proves how fucked in the head this woman makes me. And while I’m certain we’d both be more than comfortable with the idea of me pulling her skirt up and fucking her right now, and letting her think she’s manipulating me again, that has to wait until I have her someplace to myself. I release her, snatching up her gun and shoving it under my jacket, inside my holster. “Meet me at the south exit. If you aren’t there, I’ll kill you and then move on to Plan B and kill Franklin. And yes. This is a test. Pass it or you’ll be in my bed, in handcuffs for the rest of your life.”
“You said you’d kill me.”
“After I cuff you to my bed.”
I move to the door and exit into the staff hallway, and then the main school hallway, the scent of her, sweet jasmine, clinging to my skin. Damn it, I used to love that smell.
I’m halfway to the exit when suddenly she’s beside me. “As I know you know from whatever file they gave you on me,” she says without looking at me, “I watched people die because of that man in China seven years ago when he set off poison gas in the subway. I’m not sitting back while he does it again.”
I don’t reply. I just keep walking, but now she’s by my side again, as she was for three solid months, three years ago. Her words and actions are reminding me of what I’d found so damn appealing about this woman: her conviction and her moral compass that were greater than mine, that made her too good for me, and yet, made me want her all the more. Only, it was an act, a façade maintained even now and well. She’s an enemy in an uncomfortable alliance. I don’t believe a word she has said.
We reach the exit and I pause with her directly to my right, my eyes capturing hers. “You’re with me now and no one gets to take you from me. And I’m the only one who gets to kill you.”
“You’re so damn romantic,” she says. “No wonder I missed you.”
“You missed me, sweetheart?”
“That wasn’t literal.”
My lips curve. “And yet you kissed me like you missed me.”

Publishing Date: January 30th

A hard body. A dangerous past.

Meet Mr. February.

AFour Star Review of HOLD ON TIGHT by J. Kenner

“There’d been so much pain between them. So many lost opportunities. And way too many secrets.”

Continuing the attempts to keep the The Fix on Sixth open, Mr. February is making his mark. And not just by strutting his stuff on the catwalk with is sexy beard and tatted up arms. No, this man of the month is not only adding his name and reputation to the roster—having been a house-hold name from the house-flipping television series, Spencer’s Place, but putting in a little of his own muscle to make The Fix a place for everyone to enjoy. Even if it means working with the one person who broke his heart. Spencer is not sure he should go through with the show, but sometime fate has a way to offer up a chance at revenge. And Spencer has a set of conditions Brooke must agree to in order for Spencer to sign on.

In the first installment of the Man of the Month series, readers are introduced to Brooke, as she offers a deal too sweet for the friends of The Fix to pass up. Featuring the remodel of The Fix on her real-estate based reality television show could prove to be beneficial for both parties. (Enter Hold on Tight, the second installment!) But what Brooke failed to know prior to locking in her opportunity for the show was that the partner the show had in mind was the man from her past—the man she left at the altar. A man she had given her heart to. A man she kept in the dark with the secrets she harbors. Because sometimes, giving up what one wants is the greatest testament of true love.

In this second-chance troupe, readers will share the deep love and hurt the two confronted from the past, will come face to face with the secrets that threaten to keep them apart, and will experience the desire and chemistry between the two that is so strong love will push to overcome. She brings together the typical bad-boy from the wrong side of the tracks who connects with the rich girl from the hill, and intermixes their connections with additional players who also frequent The Fix. J. Kenner continues to build her characters and offer additional troupes throughout the series, leaving readers with characters who may find themselves finding their own connections thanks to the Man of the Month events and The Fix.

THE UPSIDE TO BEING SINGLE by Emma Hart

 

 

 

 

If anyone asks, I knew better than to flash my boobs for Mardi Gras beads.

I still don’t know why I did it.
Maybe it was the dare from my two best friends.
Maybe it was the guys on the balcony saying they’d throw Fireball shots with the beads.
Or maybe it was the quiet guy in the corner of that same balcony with piercing gray eyes, wavy dark hair, and a smile so tempting I wanted to climb up there and lick it off his face.
Maybe it was because I never thought I’d see them again.
Not that it matters. Not today.
Because the hotel I manage was finally bought—and the guy who walks in and introduces himself as my new boss is Mr. Tall, Dark, and Silent.

There are many upsides to being single.
Your new boss knowing what your boobs look like?
Not one of them.

“I just—I don’t get it.” I threw myself onto the sofa and almost sent the box of donuts flying onto the floor.
Thankfully, Peyton was quicker than the box. She grabbed it and sat back, hugging it to herself. “First, watch the donuts. I got the last two pink sprinkles, and I’m partial to them.” She stroked the top of the box. “Second, what don’t you get? How he doesn’t care about your boobs? I don’t care about them either.”
“You’re not supposed to care about my boobs. You’re a woman, for a start.”
“I care about your boobs,” Chloe interrupted, tucking her blond hair behind her ear. “I think you have great boobs. Bra or no bra.”
“Usually no bra,” Peyton added.
“I’m not afraid to throw something at you,” I warned her. “This is awkward.”
“Ugh! Get over yourself, Melanie!” Peyton snapped her fingers. “You are a grown woman. He is a grown man. He saw your tits. So what? Steven Lawrence saw your tits five times in junior year.”
I snatched a donut from the box. Don’t tell my hips. “We were dating! It’s entirely different!”
Chloe delicately picked up a white-iced donut before saying, “She’s right. It is different, Peyt. They were dating, and Jacob is her boss. You can’t expect her to just get over that. It is partly your fault.”
“It’s just as much your fault,” Peyton reminded her, then looked at me and nodded toward Chloe. “Drunky smurf over here shook her Tic-Tacs like she was in front of a bachelor party leaving a curry house.”
I choked on my laughter. “That’s not the point. You got us drunk. It’s almost entirely your fault.”
“Look, sunshine,” she said, tearing a bite of donut off the ring so her words were muffled. “I didn’t grab your shirt and whip it up like a two-dollar hooker on overtime. You did that, so grow a pair and take responsibility for your actions.”
“You sound like you don’t want to take responsibility for yours.”
“Hey. You’re big girls. You can refuse cocktails.”
Chloe and I shared a glance. “Refuse cocktails?” she said. “I don’t understand.”
“You have us mixed up with your other friends,” I continued. “But, wait. You don’t have other friends.”
“I have plenty of friends,” Peyt said.
“Friends without penises. Or benefits.”
She paused. “We’re not talking about me. We’re talking about your hot boss who knows what your tits look like.”
“You’re not helping.”
“I’m not trying to help. I’m trying to slap your size-eight ass into reality, you idiot.”
“Slap mine into reality and I’m putting yours on a catapult. Right into the middle of the gulf.” I tore my donut in two and gave her boobs a pointed look. “I always wondered if silicone would float.”

TEASER_5

Four Star Review of DOWN ON ME by J. Kenner

“…his thoughts still on Jenna, as wild and intense and impossible as they’d been since that night eight months ago when the earth had shifted beneath him, and he’s let himself look at her as a woman and not as a friend.”

In what is to be a spectacular journey with a close-knit group of friends set to help save their favorite bar and hangout, The Fix on Sixth Street, the Man of the Month series will feature a different trope with each installment. Down on Me sets the stage with a friends to lovers story in which three lifelong friends navigate the intricacies of romance, specifically when two of the three discover a deeper connection.

“A wild craving had hit him that night, like a tidal wave of emotion crashing over him, washing away the outer shell of friendship and leaving nothing but raw desire and longing so potent it nearly brought him to his knees.”

In this case, Reece and Jenna both find themselves drawn to the other, realizing their love and passion is more than just friendship. Deep feelings abound, but neither is quite ready to take that leap. Besides, how will it impact not only their friendship, but the friendship they both have with Brent? Perhaps there is too much to risk.

“No way was he risking their friendship. Besides, Jenna didn’t love him like that. Never had, never would.”

Although this plot was very predictable, this was a great introduction to the series. It has set the stage with some key players, given a sneak peek at some of the men who may find themselves in love’s hot seat, and has developed the concept for this twelve-month series that is bound to have a little something for everyone.

As J. Kenner does so well, her characters are well-developed, the scenes have a bit of sizzle, and the storyline flows.  But even more importantly, Kenner has given readers a reason to keep reading to discover just how resourceful these individuals will be in keeping The Fix on Sixth alive.

* My only criticism was the introduction and the out of character decision Reece makes when we first meet him. The timing just seemed completely off and uncharacteristic for the deep friendship and love these friends have for one another. However, putting that aside—and knowing the author could have left it out without it hurting the storyline—I can easily give this book a 4 Star rating. I am looking forward to what the other month have to offer. Bring on the Men of the Month!

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken proves that everyone scores to win. But off the field, a fumble can change the entire game.

Pro footballer Miller Quinton would do anything for his best friend and teammate—including “fake dating” his friend’s sister. What no one knows is that seven months ago in Vegas, Miller and Kinsey did a whole lot more than just kiss. Miller knows that this cheerleader is off-limits to him and any guy on the team. Still, he can’t stop himself.

Kinsey’s whole world is on the verge of crumbling. Her dad has cancer. Her overprotective brother is falling apart. Dating Miller may be a fake-out, but he’s the one guy who can make her forget about everything—including all the reasons she stayed away from football players. With each heated moment, Miller feels more like a safe place…even though he’s not safe at all.

Now temptation is testing every rule in the game of love. But how long can they go on playing when winning is a harder goal than either of them imagined?

A 5starReview of INFRACTION by Rachel Van Dyken

“Because life isn’t full of people who are willing to save you—sometimes, all you have is you.”

It came as no surprise that I would devour this book. I loved Fraternize, but can easily say that Infraction stole my heart and had me championing on all the characters to find their happiness by letting go and giving in to their hearts. In fact, I even shed a bit of a tear–something Rachel knows I rarely do. And, in the spirit of honestly, I may have cursed her out a bit, but then quickly shared my love and devotion for her writing.

Willing to take on tough life subjects, Rachel Van Dyken offers a glimpse into the pain that is caused by loss. She shares how sometimes the personal hardships we face prepare us to be better equipped to help those who come into our lives. Or, sometimes they help us face the past and learn how to heal on our own or with other. However, finding ways to let go of the past in order to embrace what the present and future have to hold is a difficult task and often results in a journey.

“…it’s okay to need to rely on someone else when you feel like you’re about to break—that’s life.”

Infraction is a carefully crafted and amazing piece of work that shows just such a journey, all while capturing Rachel Van Dyken’s signature RomCom elements mixed with the passionate and poignant life messages she so easily infuses that inspire and encourage readers. Through Quinton Miller’s relationship with Kinsey and Jax’s realization that he cannot control everything in life, Infraction gives readers two romances that show just how strong and resilient the heart can be. The players still embrace the snark and sarcasm we have come to love as readers— they still banter and push one another, but they love fiercely and share their hardships, fears, and undeterred friendship that allows them to learn to let go, trust, and find the ability to love.

“The heart is strong. The heart can convince the body of anything. It can convince your mind of anything. Your heart allows you to be whatever you want to be, you just have to trust it.”

Brilliantly written, the chemistry between Kinsey and Miller will have readers laughing, crying, and cheering for their HEA. And Harley and Jax will leave you asking for more—as their relationship has so much left to share.

Excerpt:

“I didn’t say I wanted a one-night stand.”

“Wow, changing your spots?”

I gripped her hand; she tried to jerk it away. “What if I want two? Maybe three? What if I want four?”

“Then I’d say you’re greedy.”

“When it comes to you?” I growled, pulling her to her feet. “Yes.”

Everyone was dancing around us but it felt like we were alone. Jax had since walked to the other side of the room. I backed Kinsey up against one of the walls, a potted plant guarded us, but not by much.

“I’ll just keep asking.”

“I’m not ready to move back in with my brother,” she huffed. “And if we complicate things, and it goes bad, which it will, what happens then?”

“So take a risk.”

“You’re asking me to trust you?”

“No.” I shook my head bitterly. “In every area of your life, your safety, your happiness, your health—you can trust me. Just don’t give me your heart, not when I’m not even sure I still have mine.”

She snorted. “So it’s going to be about just sex.”

“Distraction from your dad, distraction from Jax, let’s call it a mutual distraction between really good friends . . . the best of friends.” I kissed her temple then snaked my hand around her rib cage, lightly tickling her skin with my fingers as I raised her shirt, my knuckles grazing her belly button as I went higher and higher until I cupped her breast. She sucked in a breath, and I moved my hand back down her stomach until I came into contact with the front of her jeans.

“What are you doing?” she hissed.

“Nothing,” I whispered against her ear, kissing the hollow of her neck while my hand cupped her and then lifted her hips onto my leg, bracing it against the wall. I moved just enough for her to buck against my leg, and press her hands on my chest. “Nothing at all. You get to decide what happens.”

She huffed out a curse and pressed down on my leg again. “You’re a very bad friend.”

“I’m the best damn friend in this room.” I kept peppering light kisses against her mouth. “Come on, Waffle, time for the syrup.”

“Bad.” She rode me slow, she rode my leg hard, I imagined pulsing inside her, the walls of her body squeezing me into a slow painful death. “This is . . . so inappropriate.”

“You drive a man to want a hell of a lot of inappropriate, Kins. You’ve been driving me fucking crazy for two weeks. And since it’s all about your terms, I’m giving you the keys—you know you like to drive—so give yourself a ride, sweetheart . . . take it.”

I gripped her hips and guided her just enough so she could get a rhythm, then slowly scooted us into the shadow behind the plant and the chair to my right. We were hidden, but not enough that we couldn’t get caught.

“I need . . .” She let out a little moan and punched me in the chest, and then gave her head a shake and started mauling me with her mouth.

I grabbed her hips, slamming her tight little body against mine, and she climbed all over me, her body meeting my thrusts like we were two horny teenagers skipping class.

It felt so good, I was seconds away from getting her naked against the wall. She slowed her movements, arching against my leg, then pressed her palm to my dick; the touch set me off so hard that I drew blood against my bottom lip.
