BLOG TOUR WITH EXCERPT: Here Comes My Man by Lauren Blakely

HERE COMES MY MAN, a red-hot, enemies-to-lovers, fake boyfriend, second chance romance and the conclusion to the Hopelessly Bromantic Duet from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Lauren Blakely, is available now! Scroll down for an exclusive excerpt!

 

 

Fake dating the cocky movie star was not my idea…

 

 

A red-hot, enemies-to-lovers, fake boyfriend, second chance romance, and the conclusion to the Hopelessly Bromantic Duet!

Let me just say this — fake dating the cocky movie star was not my idea. Especially since he’s my former roomie and, gulp, my secret ex.

But my agent tells me I have no choice since I’m ridiculously overdue with turning in the next big blockbuster love story to my publisher.

Not to mention, ahem, writing it.

Falling for the smooth-talking English hottie once upon a time — fine, twice — were huge mistakes that I shouldn’t repeat, but pretending to like the guy who broke my heart is my only chance at saving my job.

That is, as long as no one finds out that every date we go on, every smile we flash each other for the cameras, and every hot, desperate kiss on the streets of Manhattan is absolutely fake.

Except…it’s not. At least for me.

And he can never know…

Contents Include: Snarky banter, sexy dates, hate s-e-x, seduction by a wordsmith, and two strong, stubborn, clever men determined to resist each other at all costs.

“…TJ and Jude’s hard-fought, swoony and scorching hot love story was a heart-racing pleasure to read.” ~Danielle, Red Cheeks Reads

EXCERPT:

JUDE

The car pulls over, and when Slade leaves with a blown kiss, it’s just TJ and me again. I steal a glance at my former roommate, who looks unfairly better than he did when he left me.

But also a little sadder.

Like me.

As the car pulls away from the curb, heading down Fifth Avenue, I defend my lips. My pride too. “That kiss was natural.”

“You heard Slade,” TJ says, too nonchalant for my taste. “You were overselling it. Maybe it would help if you thought of someone else. Just an idea.”

I want to tear my hair out. Doesn’t he get it? There’s no one else. “Like you were?”

“And why would it matter to you if I was?”

Because I want the truth from you. But hell if I’ll admit that. Instead, I call him on the lie as I lock eyes with my one-time lover. “You weren’t thinking of someone else. I hear the way your breath catches when I’m near you.”

“Is that so?” TJ tries to stay cool, but his voice hitches as I stare at his lips.

I push on, leaning closer, issuing an accusation. “Whenever I get near you, you shudder.”

“And what about you? What do you do?” TJ sounds as frustrated as I am. But also, as aroused.

“I do the fucking same, because I want to kiss you.” Holy hell, that was like ripping off a layer of my soul.

His brown eyes glimmer with outrageous hope, but then they darken like he’s shutting down that possibility. “Well, you didn’t show it.”

“Then I will now,” I say, my skin sizzling with lust. The temperature in the back seat is scorching.

“How?”

I bite the corner of my lips, knowing this drives him wild with desire.

TJ fights like hell to be stoic. But he hardly lasts. He lunges at me. Grabbing my face, he whispers against my lips, “Prove it, Jude Fox.”

REVIEW:

Here Comes My Man is the second book in Lauren Blakely’s Hopelessly Bromantic Duet, and I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the second half of Jude and TJ’s story. Blakely really pours her heart and soul into her MM romances, and as a reader, I can feel, through her storytelling, how much these stories mean to her creatively and her joy in telling them. Lauren’s work is always a must-read for me, her romantic comedies and contemporaries are some of my favorite stories to read. Her LGBTQ romances are just as entertaining, sexy and well written, and if you’re a fan of her traditional romances, you’ll enjoy these, too.

I listened to the audiobook of Here Comes My Man, and I was so excited to get my ears on it. Narrated in duet by Shane East and Teddy Hamilton, Blakely complemented this perfect lead pairing with a full cast. Teddy Hamilton as TJ and Shane East as Jude were absolutely fantastic from start-to-finish. Their hard-fought, third-chance love story is brimming with romantic history, heart-tugging emotion and sizzling chemistry. Blakely crafted a layered, immersive, round-the-world love story between two characters who absolutely stole my heart.

Here Comes My Man is another feather in Lauren Blakely’s LGBTQ romance cap. A charming, endearing couple, TJ and Jude’s hard-fought, swoony and scorching hot love story was a heart-racing pleasure to read. Five smooches from me for Here Comes My Man by Lauren Blakely!

Meet K. Bromberg:

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary romance novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines and damaged heroes who we love to hate but can’t help to love.

A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow and her mind scattered in too many different directions.

Since publishing her first book on a whim in 2013, Kristy has sold over one and a half million copies of her books across eighteen different countries and has landed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists over thirty times. Her Driven trilogy (Driven, Fueled, and Crashed) is currently being adapted for film by the streaming platform, Passionflix, with the first movie (Driven) out now.

With her imagination always in overdrive, she is currently scheming, plotting, and swooning over her latest hero. You can find out more about him or chat with Kristy on any of her social media accounts. The easiest way to stay up to date on new releases and upcoming novels is to sign up for her newsletter or follow her on Bookbub.

REVIEW:

I seriously love second-chance romances, especially when they’re a second chance at first love. On One Condition, the second book in K. Bromberg’s S.I.N. Series, is Asher and Ledger’s story. Kristy’s addictive storytelling is on full display in this emotionally charged, heart-tugging love story.

Through the use flashbacks, Bromberg takes readers back in time to Asher and Ledger’s youthful romance and intermingles them with the present. Their rich backstory was a bittersweet romance that ended in misunderstandings and without closure. I loved Asher, she was such a strong heroine, and she’s sacrificed so much. Ridiculously handsome and as charming as ever, Ledger was the cool and collected, totally in-control executive—except when Asher was nearby. The chemistry between them is still there, bubbling between them, but it was the unresolved emotion and the love they still had for each other that spoke to my heart. Kristy weaved a bit of a suspenseful edge into the story that made it an absolutely irresistible page-turner.

On One Condition was an unputdownable second-chance at first love romance full of heart, heat and healing. I practically inhaled this story in a single sitting with a huge smile on my face and full, happy heart – especially after that epilogue! Five smooches from me for On One Condition by K. Bromberg!

COVER REVEAL: Tease by Melanie Harlow

TEASE, an all new billionaire, fake engagement, small town romantic comedy from USA Today and #1 Amazon Bestselling Author, Melanie Harlow, is coming July 11th! Check out the delicious cover!

 

 

Could Hutton French and I actually be right for each other, or is it all just one big tease?

 

Cover Designer: Hang Le      |      Photographer: Michelle Lancaster

 

I didn’t mean to say I was engaged to a hot billionaire–it just slipped out.

In my defense, I’d had a really bad haircut, a really strong drink, and I was trying to save face in front of the Mean Girl at my high school reunion.

Lucky for me, I happen to know a hot billionaire. Hutton French and I have been friends forever, and even though big social gatherings are not his thing, I called him from the coat closet and begged him for a favor–show up and play my fake fiancé for the night.

Except that word of our engagement spreads like wildfire. Our families are ecstatic. We’re front page news. My little food blog is launched into the stratosphere.

Of course, I offer to set the record straight right away, but Hutton wants to give it a little time–the phony engagement will keep his matrimony-mad mother and every matchmaking granny in town off his back.

He even suggests I move in with him to make the ruse more real.

And we don’t stop there.

We practice kissing. Undressing each other. Saying things–and doing things–we’d never dare if we weren’t pretending. Because it’s all for show, right? We’re just role-playing. Hutton doesn’t want a real relationship, and I don’t want to get hurt. But the more time we spend faking it, the more I start to wonder.

Could Hutton French and I actually be right for each other, or is it all just one big tease?

COVER REVEAL: Bitter Sweet Heart by H. Hunting

BITTER SWEET HEART, an angsty, sizzling hot and forbidden age gap New Adult romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting writing as H. Hunting, is coming September 1st, and I excited to share the sinfully hot cover with you!

 

 

What harm could a one-night stand do?

 

Cover Designer: Hang Le     |     Photographer: Michelle Lancaster     |      Model: Anthony Patamisi

 

From the outside looking in, I live a charmed life: hockey legend for a father, my own promising future in the league, a great family, awesome friends. It’s not untrue, but it’s not quite that simple either.

My dad’s advice has always been to make hockey my number-one priority—at least until I make it to the pros. So, going into my senior year of college, I have a plan. I’ll put in the effort required to pass my classes, play hockey like my life depends on it, and avoid relationships. All I have to do is stay focused on the end game, and I’ll walk away with a degree and into a career in the NHL.

It should be easy.

But when a woman literally floats into my dock, just before summer ends and my senior year begins, I can’t resist one last hookup. What harm could a one-night stand do? It’s not like we even exchanged numbers.

Everything is fine until I run into her on campus.

It’s a big school. I should be able to avoid her.

Except she happens to be in my class.

And she’s not a student.

She’s my professor.

HELP ME REMEMBER, a new small-town, brother’s best friend romance from New York Times Bestselling Author, Corinne Michaels, is available now! Scroll down for an excerpt!

 

 

I may have asked Spencer to help me remember, but now I wish I could forget…

 

 

New York Times bestselling author Corinne Michaels brings you a new small-town, brother’s best friend romance.

In one second, my life disappeared.

My past. My memories. My future.

The only certainty I have from the last three years is that my older brother is dead, and I am the only eyewitness.

In order to protect the case, the lawyers demand that no one give me any information about my life . . . I must remember on my own. My only help comes from my brother’s best friend and world-renowned investigative reporter, Spencer Cross.

He has no idea how many nights I’ve spent dreaming of his name—and his body—next to mine.

Now we’re a team and our goal is to recover my memories and retrace my past. But each day we spend together, he’s looking at me as more than his friend’s little sister and I find it harder to want my old life back. Instead I’m wishing for a new one–with him. His kiss feels like home. His arms make me feel safe, and I never want this to end.

As my memories return, forcing me to face my future, everything falls apart… especially when I find an engagement ring hidden in my apartment. I have no idea who gave it to me, or what it means about my past.

I may have asked Spencer to help me remember, but now I wish I could forget.

EXCERPT:

My eyes flutter open and then slam closed as the blinding light is too much. The ache in my head is so intense it steals my breath.

What the hell happened?

There’s a slight pressure on my arm, and then my mother’s soft voice fills the silence. “Brielle, honey. It’s okay. Open your eyes, my sweet girl.”

I inhale a few times before attempting it again. This time, I’m prepared for the brightness and the sterile white walls that reflect the sunlight. I hear someone rushing around a second before the blinds go down, casting shadows and making it a little easier for me to lift my lids. 

“Where—” I try to speak, but my throat is raw. It’s as though I swallowed a thousand knives and haven’t had so much as a sip of water in years. 

Mom is beside me, and my sister-in-law, Addison, is next to her. I turn my head to see who is on the other side, which is a big mistake as a new wave of pain shoots through my skull. I lift my hands to my head, trying to push the pressure down, but it doesn’t ebb that easily. 

Who I assume is the doctor barks an order for medication before he lowers his voice to a whisper. “Brielle, it’s Holden. We’re going to get you some pain medication for your head.”

Holden? My brother’s best friend is here? I don’t understand. He left Rose Canyon years ago and only comes back once a year. 

He speaks again. “Do you know where you are?”

I’m assuming I’m in the hospital, considering the monitors and bed I’m in, so I nod. “W-what h-ha-happened?” I choke on the words. 

There are no sounds other than the beeping behind me. I will my eyelids to open and stay that way as if it will help me find the answer as to why I’m here. When they finally listen, I find myself looking directly at all three of my brother’s best friends. Holden, who is wearing his white coat, is in the middle. Next to him is Spencer Cross, the tall, dark, and sinful man I have dreamed of since I was thirteen but will never have. Behind him is Emmett Maxwell, who . . . is in the military on deployment . . . what the hell? 

Why is he in a police uniform? Why is he even here? The emails he sends each week are all Isaac ever talks about because, of course, Emmett had to join the Special Forces. He couldn’t just do his time and come back—he needed to be heroic, which isn’t the least bit surprising. 

“Do you know why you’re in the hospital?” Holden asks. 

I shake my head, regretting it immediately. 

He gives me a soft smile before asking, “What is your full name?”

“Brielle Angelina Davis.”

Corinne Michaels kicks off the Rose Canyon series with a suspenseful, heart-wrenching story. Help Me Remember was quintessential Corinne Michaels – an epic love story that runs her readers through the emotional wringer. Addictive and full of feels, this was a fresh spin on the brother’s best friend trope, courtesy of a splash of amnesia.

I don’t want to give anything away, this is truly the kind of story readers need to go into knowing as little as possible. Brielle wakes up in the hospital, rocked to her core at the news that her whole world has basically imploded. Spencer, her brother’s best friend and childhood crush, is there to help her pick up the pieces—and fit them together again.

Help Me Remember was a poignant and angsty love story full of ups and downs, pain and pleasure. The twists and turns kept me glued to my kindle, and I devoured it in a day. I loved everything about Spencer and Brie’s hard-fought love story, and I can’t wait for the next book in this exciting new series! Five smooches from me for Help Me Remember by Corinne Michaels!
