Man Hands


Man Hands 
Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby
Man Hands Book 1
December 11, 2017

He puts the "screw" in screwball comedy...

BRYNN

At thirty-four, I’m reeling from a divorce. I don’t want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn’s Dips and Balls.

But my friends aren’t having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I’m still taking a hard pass. 

Free designer cocktails, they say. And that’s a game-changer. 

Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That’s when I lose my mind. But when my besties dare me to leap on the first single man I see, they don't expect me to actually go through with it.

TOM

All I need right now is some peace and quiet while my home renovation TV show is on hiatus. But when a curvy woman in a red wrap dress charges me like she’s a gymnast about to mount my high bar, all I can do is brace myself and catch her. What follows is the hottest experience of my adult life. 

I want a repeat, but my flying Cinderella disappears immediately afterward. She doesn’t leave a glass slipper, either—just a pair of panties with chocolate bunnies printed on them. 

But I will find her. 



Man Hands is the first co-written book by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby but I hope there will be many more to come. These two perfectly combined their writing styles to where I couldn't tell where one author stopped and the other began. They created these characters that had me rooting them on and hoping they would find their way to a HEA and for that I count myself a fan. 

This book started off with me laughing and smiling like a loon, and I never lost that smile while i continued to read. I loved that Brynn and Tom were very light-hearted characters and that they stayed that way throughout their romance. It grabbed my attention from the beginning and these characters are ones that I will be raving about to all my friends. 

When I learned that both Brynn and Tom had exes that were still on their mind I got a little nervous. I don't really like when there are exes brought up too much so I went on with my reading a little cautiously. It ended up not being an issue and didn't hinder me from enjoying this story. Near the end though there was a drama with each ex that I really could have done without and Brynn's just seemed out of left field so I didn't understand why it was it happened and then it didn't feel resolved to me. 

Overall, even with the ex situation I never lost interest in this story and I really enjoyed the reading experience. Any book that can get me laughing and not even caring that I look a little insane is a winner to me.

Behind the Bars by Brittainy C. Cherry
Release Date: December 7th, 2017 
Genre: Contemporary Romance

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops. 

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.
The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.
Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.

And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.
She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.

Caged.

Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.
Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.
When we met again, she was the darkest storm.

Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets peoples’ birthdays and never sends Christmas cards. She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.

A contemporary romance author running on coffee and sticky kisses from my rowdy four little boys. From Indiana, I’m a true Mid-Westerner. Life, for me, is about family, faith, and food. When I’m not running my kiddos around or having a lunch date of fajitas with my husband (and high school sweetheart), you can find me outside.

Please find me on the ones you frequent – I love chatting with readers. 

Mandi Beck:

Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer. A nursing student, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised.

I write romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models. I love to write book lovers; those who have found refuge, companionship, and escape in books, much as we do in real life. I like realism, honesty, authenticity in storytelling. I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.

A BLONDE AT HEART Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

A lover of all things '80s and '90s, especially John Hughes films and rap, she dabbles a little in photography, can knit a simple stitch scarf for necessity only and does a horrible job of playing the ukulele. Aside from running a mile without collapsing, traveling is the only other must on her bucket list. On occasion, she does very well at vodka.

Kiss Kiss Bang


Kiss Kiss Bang
Sidney Halston
Iron Clad Security Book 3
December 5, 2017

Six-foot-two and ripped...with superior computer skills, Josef “Joey” Clad is not your typical ex-Marine. The co-owner of Iron-Clad securities is 100% Alpha male, but under his muscular physique, he's the best hacker in Miami who specializes in running Iron-Clad's cyber ops. The perfect skill set for their new client who is getting threatening emails, a client who he definitely wants to get to know better. Much better.

Single mom, widow, Olivia Monroe has exceptional dreams that she refuses to let go of. Fifteen years ago, she left her broken home in New York City and never looked back. Now a dark horse candidate for Florida governor, she's not looking for a relationship. Even with the hot guy who sweeps in and saves her computer the night before a big speech. Her hero has trouble written all over him. Joey is too handsome, too funny, too confident, and way too hard to resist.

Too bad he's now her bodyguard. 



Kiss Kiss Bang follows the "Clad" in Iron-Clad Security, also known as Joey. He's the hacker behind the security firm and meets his match in single mom Olivia Russo. When he first ran into her she was a disheveled mess having a break down on the floor of a computer store, yet just one look at her and he knew she was someone his life needed. Then he ended up being what she needed when a crazed stalker starts to make threats against her.

This series is honestly one of my favorites from Sidney Halston, I love the suspense and intrigue of it and how these characters flourish in the chaos. Joey and Olivia had really great chemistry and those moments of stolen kisses and soft touches amongst the craziness of everything else going on was what drew me into them. I also swooned ridiculously hard over Joey with Olivia's daughter. 

Overall, this was a brilliant Romantic Suspense and I felt like it had the perfect mix of mystery and sweet romance. It actually makes me want to go back and re-read the series as a whole just because seeing the past characters reminded me of how much I loved them all.

Commander in Briefs


Commander in Briefs 
Kristy Marie 
Commander in Briefs Book 1
December 5, 2017

Theo:
One, two, three…Six dicks!
Six dicks are living under the same roof with my girl. My girl!
How did we get to this point? How did one act of kindness, one act of lunacy, turn into this? I’ll tell you. Her bleeding heart. “I have to help him,” she said. “He needs someone.”
Months later, she has five freaking more!
Suddenly, she can’t come to my games or spend time with me.
Everything is about them.
Well, guess what? I don’t care what level of asshole I have to resort to, I’m going to show these vets just who Anniston McCallister belongs to. My name has been written on those seductive little panties of hers for seven years and no amount of muscle is going to ruin what we have going.
You may not like me.
You may think I’m an ass.
But understand that no matter what good deeds Anniston McCallister has done, she’s no angel. The girl craves rough and dirty debauchery.
And I’m just the man to give it to her.

Anniston:
I found Cade near death, in a ditch.
One look at those enchanting green eyes and I knew I had found my calling. Is it my fault that my newfound roommates threaten Theo to the point of insanity, causing him to parade around all angry and pissed off, marking his territory in every corner?
Theo started this “just friends” game when he banged some skank right after he took my virginity.
That kind of dirty play deserves payback, and I plan on making that phenomenal ass pay on his knees until he admits we were always more than, “just friends.”
But in the meantime, I have a foundation to start and men to command. Someone has to manage these hotties, and I’m just what the doctor ordered.
I am their Commander.

PRE-ORDER


I enjoyed this story. The story plot was good. I loved Cade he is so kind and gentle. The way he protects Anniston is so sweet. The lil arguments he has with Theo are so funny. As soon as he came into the story I knew I was going to love him. I need more of this man.

Anniston I'm a bit on the fence about. I really liked her in the beginning but as the story went on she annoyed me. She was a lil bit to much for me in some parts. I understand why she needed to do what she does. But sometimes i think she could of been less hard on them. I do think the relationship she has with Cade is very sweet. They work so well together there a great team. Then there is the relationship that Anniston as with Theo. They have been attached at the hip since they were young. Even after things got a lil tense with them they still couldn't be apart. 

Theo is just the typically sport man. Loves women and living life to the max. The only person how he needs is Anniston. The only thing is he messes up quite a lot. The feelings he as for Anniston are strong and he knows she feels the same. He just didn't do anything about it. But once things start to change in Anniston life he has to start making his feeling known. He's wouldn't let her go and he wouldn't let any man near her she was his end of story. 

I did like this book. There was so much going on that had me dying to know what was going on. I do enjoy military and second chance story. I did find parts a lil slow i just needed to know what was going to happen. But I do get inpatient sometimes. Parts of the book were funny I did like how jealous Theo was of the guys Anniston work with. It was so funny. I would recommend this book. Even for Cade you just need a Cade in your life. Even though Anniston and Theo are great together and very sexy together. Theo just doesn't care about anything or anyone bar Anniston. She is his whole world.

Undercover Attraction


UNDERCOVER ATTRACTION by Katee Robert

Part of the O’Malleys series
Forever | November 28, 2017 | Mass Market: $7.99 | eBook: $5.99



Scandal. Wealth. Power. Seduction. Welcome to the world of the O'Malleys.

Ex-cop Charlotte Finch used to think there was a clear line between right and wrong. Then her fellow officers betrayed her, and the world is no longer so black and white. Especially when it's Aiden O'Malley, one of the most dangerous men in Boston, who offers her a chance for justice. The only catch: she'll have to pretend to be his fiancée for his plan to work.

Aiden can't afford to let anyone see the man behind the mask. To run the O'Malley empire, he has to be cool and controlled at all times. But the moment he meets Charlie, they're playing with fire. Her slightest touch is enough to send him over the edge. At first their "engagement" was a way to eliminate his enemies. Now he'll do whatever it takes to keep her safe-- even if he has to destroy his own family to do it.

EXCERPT

“Come on.” Aidan stepped back and took her hand. “I have something to show you.”

He led the way up the back stairs and through a door she hadn’t explored yet. Charlie’s breath caught in her throat at the sight of candles flickering on a table laid out with a bottle of wine, two glasses, and a whole spread of Chinese takeout.

She let go of his hand and wandered over to peer into the boxes. “How did you know that crispy pork belly was my favorite?” Just like that, the pieces clicked together. She snapped her fingers. “You had your sister feel me out?” She’d thought Kiera had been asking about her favorite food so they could pick a local place next time they ventured out of the house. “Shady. Very shady.”

“I am a mob boss, after all.” He came around the table and poured them both a glass of wine. “I have it on good authority that this cab pairs well with Chinese takeout.”

“How classy of you.” It was like stepping into another realm of existence as she sat down and accepted the glass of wine while he filled two plates. When Aiden had said that he wanted a dinner date with her, she’d assumed that meant dressing to the nines and going out somewhere fancy. She said as much.

He snorted. “Eating out always serves a purpose. Either you’re making a point, or ensuring you’re seen by someone specific, or conducting a business meeting. We’ve been making points and playing parts since we met. I’d like to try something new—having a relaxing conversation. Just me and you, Aiden and Charlie, not the leader of the O’Malley clan and the former-cop-turned-fake-fiancée.”

“Do you think that’s even possible?” Such a short time together, and it was clear they both had a boatload of issues. It was easy enough to ignore when they were banging each other’s brains out or pretending to be something they weren’t, but holding down a conversation without those masks in place? She wasn’t sure it was a good idea.

Because I already like him.


Leading up to his book Aiden O'Malley has been an iffy character for me. He always seemed to be doing the opposite of what was good for his siblings and it made him hard to like. But reading Undercover Attraction really brought to focus how much pressure he was under and that despite what may have shown in previous books, he does love his family. 

Loving the O'Malley family means having to make sacrifices for them and also having to make hard decisions in regards to them. Which is what leads him to Charlie with a proposal of the fake kind. 

Adrian and Charlie were both very well developed characters and I loved getting to see how they took what they were fighting for and turned it into a connection between one another. Getting to see them together, the ex-cop and the mafia leader, was intriguing and also really romantic. I liked that it was their differences that lead them to one another.

It's really interesting to see how this series has evolved since the first one, The Marriage Contract, and how different these characters feel now. I don't mean that in a bad way, but just that I can tell all of these characters have grown since they had their own book and I really like that this series has shown that so well.

The Bachelor Contract

THE BACHELOR CONTRACT by Rachel Van Dyken 
The Bachelors of Arizona Book 3
November 28, 2017
Forever Mass Market; $7.99


A second-chance romance from the #1 New York Times bestseller of The Bet, Matchmaker and Elite series!

She's everywhere.

Ex-wife.

Love of his life.

The last person in the world he wanted to see...ever.

And now that he's working beside her every day, he can't escape her. Her scent, glimpses of her smile, even the tension in the air that makes his body hum with the kind of need he'd only experienced with one person-all of it is driving him over the edge.

Brant Wellington was certain of three things:

Alcohol wasn't going to solve this.

He really was losing his F-ing mind.

And his gorgeous ex-wife was going to be the death of him.

NOTE: The print and ebook editions have different covers!

Barnes & Noble: http://bit.ly/2zsqzIL

EXCERPT

It was Brant.

Always Brant.

Maybe that was because they’d never had any real closure. Just fighting, yelling, and then silence.

God, she’d hated the silence so much more than the yelling.

The silence crackled with tension—it was always filled with more meaning than when words were actually spoken.

It wasn’t the yelling that had killed their relationship.

It was the silence that had followed. When he had every opportunity to fix it—and didn’t.

Why was it so hard to move on? Probably because she hadn’t tried.

Instead, she’d worked. Tried to stay positive. And hoped.

Damn hope. Stupid hope.

“He’s not coming back for me,” she whispered, knowing that if she finally admitted he wasn’t coming, she would have to take her part of the blame in why. Because it wasn’t just on him to come running back. A small part of her knew that it was her job to meet him halfway. Instead, she’d ignored the need in his eyes, the desperate plea in his voice, and allowed grief to swallow her whole. Because at the time she’d needed someone to blame, and it was easier blaming him than herself.


I don't honestly know how I survived this book because these characters broke my heart. Reading how devastated they both were had me tearing up so much throughout the story, especially Brant. 

Brant was just a mess and completely losing his shit when this book opened up. I felt so many emotions for him because his pain was right there on the surface as he was trying so hard to hide it. He was one of those characters that I wish was real just so I can hold him and make him feel better.

He had Nikki for that though and I loved them together when they could actually be in the same room and not fight. That pain that they were both hiding, not so well, got even bigger when they were together because it was so hard for them to see one another. But with Brant's family butting in and pushing them together as much as possible it made them stop and actually talk. 

Seeing them heal their wounds together was the most heart-skipping-a-beat moment. As much as they broke my heart, they put it right back together with their sweetness and I loved that. It wasn't an easy journey but they got their together and experiencing that with them had me loving their story.

Bodyguard, the highly anticipated new standalone from New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss is available NOW!


Bodyguard by CD Reiss
Release Date: November 14th, 2017

Protecting a celebrity in Hollywood isn’t easy, but protecting Emily could break his heart.

What’s happening between them is so hot it could get both of them burned. As Emily’s past gets closer, Carter is willing to break every rule of the job to save her.

Bodyguard is the second book in C.D Reiss' Hollywood A-List series but can be read as a complete standalone. The book follows Emily, a choreographer for her best friend, and the bodyguard assigned to her when it becomes apparent that her ex isn't going to leave her alone. Carter is all about the job, focused and hardworking he's not one to fool around when he's protecting someone. But when he's with Emily she's the only thing on his mind and makes him want to break all the rules.

Carter was the most intriguing character from this book for me. We learn early on that his life isn't as carefree as he wants people to believe. His life wasn't a secret exactly but there were a lot of unknowns about him that had me itching to get more. I liked that he brought some mystery to the story that held my attention. 

What brought my rating down to 3.5 was the fact that we had Carter's mystery life going on, mixed with Emily's ex and it all got to be a little too much for me. I didn't get a feeling of satisfaction with either by the end of the book and I felt like some things should have been focused on at least a little more than they were.

Overall though I did enjoy the chemistry between Emily and Carter, and that hint of mystery really had me captivated by these characters. I would definitely recommend this book and can definitely be read without reading the first in the series. 



EXCERPT

"Are we going to have another 'about last night' conversation?" I asked. "If you want to." What did I want to say? Everything. but mostly, I wanted to tell him how much I liked kissing him and how conflicted I was. I wanted to demand answers immediately and give him space at the same time. All the words tried to jump forward, but when he stopped at a light, our eyes met in the rearview. The words landed in a tangle, unsaid. He tapped the steering wheel when he turned it, using both hands for the first time since I'd gotten in. "Hey," I said. "Yeah?" He briefly looked at me in the mirror. "What happened to your hand?" "Burn." he brushed his left hand over the bandage at the top of his palm, right where you'd burn it if you were picking up a hot pot handle. He caught my eye in the rearview again. I didn't know if I believed him. "What were you cooking?" "Breakfast." "And you still went to get a Danish?" He rubbed his upper lip with his left hand and tapped the wheel with the bandaged one. "I burned my eggs." Right. Hot pot. Burned hand. Smoke-filled kitchen. "You know what's funny?" I said. "The Three Stooges." "I don't know anything about you. You could live in your mother's basement." "That's just where I bury the bodies." Blatant avoidance. It had been cute before; now it was getting on my nerves. "Are you married?" "No!" He could have been lying, buy lying liars always lied. There wasn't a thing I could do about that except make sure I asked. Something was wrong. We'd kissed twice, and twice he'd shut down. I should have been the one shutting down. I was the one with all the ex-boyfriend baggage. Why was I the one who was always so willing? But there he was in the front seat, driving with both hands on the wheel, glancing at me once in a while to make sure I wasn't choking on my tongue in the back seat. Discomfort radiated out of him. Here I was with my hands in my lap thinking about ways to kiss him again. He pulled into the little lot and wedged into a space. He turned off the car, popped his seat belt, and stared at the wheel for a split second too long. I was about to open the car door myself when he turned all the way around, arm over the back of his seat, bandaged hand on the back of the passenger side. "Kissing you..." He stopped and looked at my lips so intensely I folded them back and bit them. "You're dangerous. I can't even see your lips, but I can taste them. I couldn't brush the taste of you out of my mouth this morning. Right now. The honey. I can taste it but not enough. I want to kiss you again, and I can't. I lose my shit around you. I can't do it. My job is control. Do you understand what I'm saying?" My jaw loosened, and I let my lips go. "No, I don't. I've met bodyguards before. You're a stoic bunch, but you're not all celibate. And if you think this is easy for me, you're wrong. I'm afraid too. I'm afraid you're going to get hurt because of me. last night..." I put my fingertips to my lips as if that would keep the choking sob from coming. I kept it back. "Last night he showed me he's back, and if he'll hurt me, he'll hurt you." If I thought seats would be a barrier between us, I was wrong. He launched himself between them and placed his lips on mine. Our third kiss was unexpected, uncomfortable with him stretched between front and back. I wove my fingers in his hair, giving him my mouth, and taking his. I wanted that kiss to tell him it was all right. He could lose control. He could bemore than a protector. He was as safe with me as I was with him. But I couldn't without lying to both of us. He yanked his lips away. "Trust me." He leaned his forehead against mine.

I like sex. Kinky sex. The kinkier the better.

Every day, it’s all I think about as I serve coffee and hand out business agendas to men who have no idea I’m not the prim, proper girl they think I am.

With a day job as the secretary to one of New York’s most powerful men, Hudson Pierce, I have to keep my double life quiet. As long as I do, it’s not a problem.

Enter: Nathan Sinclair. Tall, dark and handsome doesn’t come close to describing how hot he is. And that’s with his clothes on. But after a dirty, filthy rendezvous, I accept that if we ever see each other again, he’ll walk right by my desk on his way to see my boss without recognizing me.

Only, that’s not what happens. Not the first time I see him after the party. Or the next time. Or the time after that. And as much as I try to stop it, my two worlds are crashing into each other, putting my job and my reputation at risk.

And all I can think about is Nathan Sinclair.

All I can think about is getting just one more dirty, filthy fix.

Behind The Bars Cover Reveal


BCC_COVER REVEAL.jpg


Behind the Bars, the first standalone in the all-new Music Street Series from Brittainy C. Cherry is coming December 7th!


Behind the Bars by Brittainy C. Cherry
Release Date: November 9th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: QuirkyBird Designs
Photographer: Perrywinkle Photographer

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.
The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.
Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find. 

And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.
She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.

Caged.

Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.
Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.
When we met again, she was the darkest storm.

Defiant Queen



The Mount Trilogy continues with Defiant Queen... I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt. I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment? They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body. But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy. I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules. I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact. But he has other plans . . . Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire.

Defiant Queen starts off after a big shocker that ended Ruthless King. Diving right back into the story we get to see how Keira and Lachlan are handling each other and how Keira is doing after getting such a big shock. 

This serial has not slowed down at all throughout these two books and I love that about them. Serials are always a little iffy for me because I find that inevitably one of the books will be very slow and seem more like filler to keep the story going. But I definitely did not have that issue with Defiant Queen and this book had me captivated just as much as the first one. 

I might even have liked it a little more since we got to dig a little deeper in Lachlan and who he is. I liked getting more of the focus put on him so we could see his motives behind things. Bottom line though, both of these characters are great and I can't wait to get the conclusion to their story.
