Excerpt Reveal: A Fine Mess by Kelly Siskind

Excerpt Reveal: A Fine Mess by Kelly Siskind About the Book: Title: A Fine Mess Author: Kelly Siskind Series: Over The Top, #2 On Sale: August 2, 2016 Publisher: Forever Format: eBook Price: $3.99 USD Add to Goodreads Some guys should come with a warning label… Sawyer West is Mr. One-Night Stand. He doesn’t do relationships or promises or feelings. He’s never cared enough to get involved. Until Lily Roberts. She’s sweet and shy and sexy as sin, and resisting her is testing his self-control. She believes Sawyer can be a better man, and for the first time in his life, he wants to be. But change isn’t easy, and Sawyer would do anything to protect Lily from his past self. Even break his own heart… Excerpt: Sawyer steps close and waits for me to make eye contact. Slowly, I lift my gaze to his gold-flecked brown eyes, but I can’t find my voice. It’s like I don’t know how to talk to him anymore. He grins. “Hi.” From my angle it’s easy to see the scar running down his neck, the remnant of a fall he took through a coffee table while wrestling with his brother. I’ve always wanted to touch it, feel the puckered skin under my fingers. I drop my gaze, but it doesn’t help. The cuffs of his gray button-down are rolled to his elbows, roped muscle exposed below. Something else I’d like to touch. I blink hard. “Hi,” I say to my feet. “Look at me, Lil.” I rock on my heels, then do as asked. He raises an eyebrow. “How f*cking weird is this?” My giggle surprises me, and I loosen my grip on my wineglass. “Totally weird.” Thank God for Sawyer’s candid nature. He sips his drink, probably Scotch, and a sheen of liquid clings to his bottom lip. Touch that arm. Kiss that scar. Taste those lips. None of these urges are new, but they’re heightened. Magnified. He watches me watching him, his gaze as probing as mine. What is he thinking? Then the music changes. A remix of Madonna’s “Holiday” plays, and Sawyer does Sawyer. He tips his head to the right, his shoulders following, then he pushes out his hip and rolls his torso through. The guy does body waves, alternating from side to side, like he’s in an eighties music video. People stop. People look. People laugh. I snort, an unattractive sound I make when my laughter takes over. Sawyer says it sounds like a hyena...

First Look: Love Restored by Carrie Ann Ryan

First Look: Love Restored by Carrie Ann Ryan The first book in a Montgomery Ink spin-off series, LOVE RESTORED by Carrie Ann Ryan, was announced on USA Today HEA yesterday, and we’re so thrilled to bring you a first look at LOVE RESTORED today! About LOVE RESTORED In the first of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a broken man uncovers the truth of what it means to take a second chance with the most unexpected woman… Graham Gallagher has seen it all. And when tragedy struck, lost it all. He’s been the backbone of his brothers, the one they all rely on in their lives and business. And when it comes to falling in love and creating a life, he knows what it’s like to have it all and watch it crumble. He’s done with looking for another person to warm his bed, but apparently he didn’t learn his lesson because the new piercer at Montgomery Ink tempts him like no other. Blake Brennen may have been born a trust fund baby, but she’s created a whole new life for herself in the world of ink, piercings, and freedom. Only the ties she’d thought she’d cut long ago aren’t as severed as she’d believed. When she finds Graham constantly in her path, she knows from first glance that he’s the wrong kind of guy for her. Except that Blake excels at making the wrong choice and Graham might be the ultimate temptation for the bad girl she’d thought long buried. Add it to your Goodreads list here! LOVE RESTORED releases September 13th – preorder now! Amazon | iBooks | Barnes and Noble | Kobo | Google Play Get a sneak peek at LOVE RESTORED: Graham Gallagher had never craved a cigarette as much as he did just then. It didn’t matter that he’d quit smoking over fifteen years ago cold turkey and hadn’t picked one up since then. He just wanted a damn smoke. Scratch that. He wanted a f*cking cigarette, a beer, and a willing woman underneath him as he f*cked her until they were both spent. And not necessarily in that order. Not that he’d get any of that any time soon. Between this new job, the old one they hadn’t fully completed yet, and the rest of the crap in his life, he wasn’t sure he’d even have time for a beer. And considering it had been a long six months since he’d had a woman under him,...

Not anymore. He took a step to the side, intending to move around her. Oh, no. She flattened her hands on his shoulders, keeping him in place. “I want to know what’s wrong with you.” She said. “Tell me.” He snapped his teeth at her in a show of dominance. “You think you want to know my problem.

Book Spotlight + Excerpt: Alpha Ever After by Jessica Simms

Book Spotlight + Excerpt: Alpha Ever After by Jessica Simms About the Book: Connor’s loved Savannah from the moment he laid eyes on her. She’s his mate, no matter what she says.  Savannah’s hated the Anderson pack ever since they kidnapped her. That fateful week had big consequences, though, and now she’s pregnant with Connor’s twins. He’s elated. She’s…less enthusiastic. She wants the babies but him? Not so much. He’s a bossy werewolf who thinks he can dictate what she does. She’s a were-cougar who won’t be pushed, especially not by a know-it-all wolf alpha.  So why is it every time that she tries to move on, he’s right there waiting for her? And why does she compare everyone else to a certain tall, dark wolf? Why does she crave Connor more than pickles and ice cream? Purchase Info: Amazon Excerpt: I get to the coffee shop a half hour early just in case Savannah shows up a few minutes ahead of schedule. I scope out the best, quietest table in the place. I want nothing but perfection for my girl. Unfortunately, the best table is also occupied by a guy with a laptop. Fucker. I sit nearby and glare convincingly at him until he gets up and moves to a different table, and then I clean off the surface with a moist towelette. The chairs aren’t super comfortable, and one wobbles, so I switch it out for another. The sunlight is bright as it filters in through the blinds so I get up and adjust them a little. Everything has to be perfect for when my girl gets here. Perfect. I order one of every breakfast sandwich, cookie, bread, and muffin they have, and an iced coffee, a hot coffee, and a soy latte. I get extra napkins and steal the creamer jar from the stand so Savannah can have as much as she wants. I know she likes dairy. I…think. Fuck. I drum my fingers on the table, staring at the front door. Waiting. The sunlight is still casting too much light on her chair, I think, so I move it a little to the left. I don’t want her to have to squint. When I’m satisfied it’s perfect – again – I look up. And there she is. The sight of Savannah always takes my damn breath away. She’s an absolute dream to look at, with that beautiful oval face, those dark eyes and that long fall of silky brown hair. She’s wearing a plain blue...

Excerpt + Giveaway: Carnal by Sasha White

Excerpt + Giveaway: Carnal by Sasha White Coming soon! CARNAL, the 4th story in the sexy Overwatch series from Sasha White. Following Primal (book 3), Carnal continues Adam and Oliva’s story. Today we have a sneak peek excerpt from Carnal. Excerpt: She watched Bruce and his sub, John, leave the bar and head over toward one of the play areas. The one with the spanking bench that looked sort of like a wooden sawhorse with nice cushy padding over it. As they walked, John’s steps slowed until he was lagging behind. Bruce turned, grabbed his sub by the arm and jerked him to his side. Olivia’s inner radar sprang to life and she leaned forward, watching the couple intently. When they got to the play area Bruce let John go and went to set his toy bag on the floor by the wall. He pulled out a pair of cuffs and turned to find John on the other side of the bench, watching him with a smirk. Bruce said something and John shook his head. A frown creased his rugged face, and Bruce was Bruiser again as he stalked toward his stubborn sub. Olivia glanced over to where Chris, one of the security guys stood with Eden, the club manager. Their relaxed stances as Bruiser wrestled with John, forcing him into position over the bench told Olivia that this was part of a planned scene. Heat started to unfurl low in Olivia’s belly and her pulse kicked up as she watched Bruiser wrestle John’s jeans off him before pushing him back down onto the bench. A crowd was forming around their play area, and someone shifted, blocking Olivia’s view. She slid off her seat and turned away only to run into the rock hard chest of the man who’d been standing behind her. She clapped a hand to her chest. “Adam! When did you get here? I mean, here, behind me, not here at the club, because, well, I know you’ve been here for a couple hours already.” Good Lord, what was wrong with her? She never rambled! Adam’s lips lifted in a small smile as his warm hands slid around her waist. “I’ve been standing there since just after Bruce pulled the cuffs out of his bag, you were just to entranced to notice.” “Oh.” She slid her hands up over his ribs to settle over his chest. She loved the feel of his heartbeat against the palm of her hand. “Well, I’ve noticed now, Sir.” “What’s turning...
