Excerpt

“It’s not that I was trying to hide it from you. I just… it’s a part of me that I’ve worked hard to bury for a long time.” Right about now, I’m really wishing I had listened to Dylan and pulled down the Johnnie Walker. I’m irritated that I’ve driven this wedge between us. Dylan has been there for me since college. He pushed aside his aspirations to help me start the promotions company when he could have easily been hired on with any fancy corporation and raced his way up the ladder.

Dylan’s feet drop to the floor as he leans over the desk. “But why? If you’ve been burying it, that means this wasn’t a surprise to you. Why wouldn’t you tell me what was going on in that thick skull of yours? Some of the shit we’ve been through together, I can’t think of a single fucking thing I would keep a secret from you.”

“It’s not that I don’t trust you, D,” I groan, tilting my head back against my chair.  “I just… if I told you, I’d have to tell Tommy. And if he knew, everyone would know and I’m not ready for that. Maybe someday I’ll have someone in my life and I’ll have to tell them, but until then, I don’t see a reason for my family to know.”

“Seriously? Do you really think Tommy would run to your mom? And even if he did, I think you’re imagining a worse reaction than they’ll have. You have the type of family most people would kill to have.” He reaches across the desk, slapping me across the back of my head. The cockeyed grin on his face lets me know that while he might be upset with me for keeping this secret, he’s not angry and this won’t be the death of our friendship.

“You’ve met my family. What do you think they’re going to say when they learn that I like dick?” For as accepting as the Reed family can be about a lot of things, that acceptance doesn’t extend to one of their own having bisexual tendencies. They’d run with the fact that I am attracted to women and ask why I can’t be happy finding a good woman to settle down with. Until Mary, there wasn’t a woman I would have considered such a move for. With Mary, I feel as if we’d be incomplete without Jeff.

“Fair enough. But I’m not them and I highly doubt Tommy would say anything. After all, he knows them just as well as you do and I don’t see him throwing you under a bus.” I get what he’s saying, but it’s too late to change it.

“You could have told me.” If I’m not mistaken, Dylan sounds more hurt than angry. That shouldn’t surprise me, but it does. It wasn’t until recently that the man showed any sort of emotion. “You should have told me, man. You and me, we’re closer than I am with my own brother. I just…”

My Review

Tyler and Stella is the follow up novel to Tattoo Thief. Although this is the second novel in the series it can be read as a standalone.  I really enjoyed the first book but I have to say that Tyler and Stella is even better. So many times second books in series do not live up the initial book, this is not one of those times! I sat down to read just a few chapters, then get some cleaning done around the house, next thing I knew it was several hours later and I had a finished book and a messy house. I could not put this book down!

This book starts with Stella’s betrayal of her best friend Beryl(girlfriend of  Tattoo Thief lead singer Gavin) At a band gathering that Gavin has invited Stella to (in order to beg Beryl’s forgiveness) Stella meets lead guitarist Tyler. She is instantly attracted to him and he her but he is nothing but a gentleman to her and even offers to help her out with a story.

fgf

Stella is a music reporter for the Indie Daily News and is stuck reporting on no name bands. So when she shes an opportunity to exploit her best friend and get a good byline she takes it! When this book begins (and sometimes throughout) I didn’t like Stella much as a person. As a character I thought she was unique and different! Too often women in these books are portrayed as the “good ones” who make the right choices and the guys screw up! This book was different in the sense that both make some bad choices but it is Stella who you just want to yell at!

Now, during this book I do grow to love Stella more and more, but it is really about how much I grew to love Tyler and Stella together that makes this book special. I don’t have to love the person Stella to love how right she is for Tyler.

pizap.com13928722562651

Tyler is definitely a swoon-worthy book boyfriend. When we meet Tyler is  coming to the rescue, making a tough moment light, and helping out Stella get some inside info into the band for an interview. He can be the sweetest man you have ever met but also a bit manipulative. He doesn’t always make the best decisions and at times you want to scream at him but page in and page out you love him.  The two of them have some serious relationship drama in their past that holds both of them back from falling full force, even though as the reader you can see from the first moment that they are meant to be with one another.

This book was not short on fun happy moments or on drama. The twist and turns kept me from being able to put the book down but it was the sweetness of them as a couple that kept me from caring if anything else got done that day!

pizap.com13929059053271

Heidi Joy Tretheway wrote a great book that was easy to read, funny, sexy, and with a awesome story to boot. I am a sucker for a rock star romance and this book did not let me down! Now I just have to pas the time until I can get book 3!

Caught Up In Us and Pretending He’s Mine New Cover Reveal

We are so excited to bring to you Lauren Blakely’s new covers for CAUGHT UP IN US and PRETENDING HE’S MINE today! Lauren gave us a special message to share with you about why the covers are changing.

Caught
Up in Us and Pretending He’s Mine are my first two books, and
while I have great affection for the original covers and the way

 

readers responded to those two romances, I wanted the covers to better
match the look of the rest of my books. I began working with the Sarah
Hansen at Okay Creations starting with Trophy Husband and she went on
to also design Playing With Her Heart’s cover as well as my No Regrets
series. I love the work she did on those books, and while she was busy
creating the cover for my next novel, Night After Night (releasing in
May!), I asked Helen Williams at All Booked Out to do a cover makeover
for Caught Up in Us and Pretending He’s Mine so that those could match
Playing With Her Heart’s look. Helen does amazing work and has done
many graphics for me and other book covers, so I knew she would be
able to do a brilliant redo — she also redid the covers in only one
weekend!! It was a fast turnaround and I am thrilled with the new
looks, and especially how well all the books play together now. And to
celebrate the redesign as well as the one-year anniversary of
Pretending He’s Mine this month, I will be offering Pretending He’s
Mine for free on iBooks starting today and through the weekend! (It’s
possible Amazon might price match the free offering, but I can’t
guarantee what Amazon will do so if you want to read it for free, snag
it on iBooks!)
 
Aren’t they gorgeous? See below for individual pictures of each new cover and all of the information on each, as well as where you can find Lauren and stalk-we mean follow-her!
 
ABOUT CAUGHT UP IN US:
 
A New York Times and USA Today
Bestseller!
 
A second
chance at first love…
 
Five years ago, Kat Harper
fell into a dizzying summer romance with her brother’s best friend Bryan. It
was a mad, crazy love full of kisses all through the night — but he broke her
heart and she had to move on. Five years later, Kat is finishing her graduate
degree and building her business as a jewelry designer, when Bryan, head of his
own successful company, walks back into her life. Bryan has been assigned to
Kat as her new business mentor and the rules are clear. No hanky panky
permitted. Kat can handle that because she’s totally over him… right? Except,
he still makes her laugh, and he remembers all the things she likes. Not to
mention that he’s even more handsome now than he was then. Then there’s the
spark between them — the simply undeniable chemistry, and the tender ways he
shows he still cares for her. Can they resist each other the second time around
or will first love trump all?

ABOUT PRETENDING HE’S MINE:
 
“The one
you like best. That’s my favorite position. My favorite thing is making you
feel good.” 
 

Reeve Larkin needs a job. Sure, the actor is talented and gorgeous in that
dreamy, broody sort of way that makes all the women swoon. But he lost out on a
part in a big movie, and now his day job hours have been slashed too.
What’s a handsome young thing in need of a role to do? Sign up to be the
fake fiancé of the sexy and shrewd casting director Sutton Brenner,
who must appear temporarily attached if she’s to land a coveted gig casting a
red-hot film. So Sutton strikes a pact with Reeve to play the role of her
fiance until she closes the deal. The trouble is – she’s sexy-as-hell and damn
near irresistible to him. And he’s not only a great guy, but also the best
dirty talker she’s ever met. It doesn’t take long for their pretend love affair
to heat up, especially after that toe-curling night in the balcony of the
Broadway theater. And that scorching afternoon in the stacks of the New York
Public Library. 
 
A red-hot
love affair. An intense connection.
 But as the lines between make-believe
and matters of the heart blur, can two people working in the world of acting
fake it til they make it?

Synopsis

Next to Forever is the final book in the Never Letting Go series.

The past will always come back to haunt you and hidden truths are uncovered, as darkness looms over the lives of Erin and Connor on their journey to forever.

Filled with love and happiness, as well as a baby and a wedding on the way, Erin and Connor seem to have it all -until life throws them a twist.

As tragedy strikes, Erin and Connor have to make one of the toughest decisions in their lives.

Will they have their happily ever after or will they have to say goodbye forever?

Review

An emotional, tense and wonderful read about two people who’s love for each other comes off the pages and feels so real you can’t help but want the happily ever after these couples deserve.

Having not read the previous two books in this series I wasn’t sure what to expect but after hearing such great things I couldn’t wait to get started.

After the first few pages I could already tell how much Erin and Connor loved each other, it may seem unrealistic to some readers but to me it was nice to escape into a story where soul mates truly exist.

Their story starts and pretty quickly there is drama happening, then even more so, and then half way through the book I couldn’t stop turning the pages and feeling so tense wondering what was going to happen and praying everything would work out.

It is definitely an intense read with so much happening, it feels as though these characters will never stop going through so much.

Erin and Connor and Sophie and Adam were great characters. So full of love for each other and it truly felt like I was reading about such a close and devoted family. Even though this story focuses on Erin’s and Connor’s love story I enjoyed reading about Sophie and Connor as well and having them along for the emotional filled ride.

There was some repetitiveness within the story when it came to them talking about how they loved each other and wouldn’t leave and how Connor was constantly worrying. I understand why this was but felt like it didn’t need to be touched upon as much as it was.

The same with the sex scenes, with there not being enough diversity but that may just be me as I read a lot of erotica where the sex is obviously a lot more diverse. With this book they were definitely hot but I also have read better in other books. This didn’t detract from the story though and I still found this a thoroughly enjoyable read.

This was a beautiful love story with an intense story line that kept hold of me till the end. A beautiful epilogue to finish off was the perfect ending as well, especially after all the drama and hard times the characters went through.

Broken

Broken is the debut novel by K.Webster and it is HOT! From the moment I started this book I did not want to put it down. The characters of Andi and Jackson are so deliriously sexy you can’t help but to root for them the whole way through! This book is full of fun, drama and super steamy!

This book is about how two people who are distancing themselves from even the remote possibility of love can change if the right person comes along!

Meet Andi

pizap.com13924124007711

Andi is young and beautiful but her once sense of hope at a happily ever after has been lost. After she caught her fiance cheating, her whole outlook on love changed. After regaining control of her emotions, Andi decided never to let a man hurt her like that again. Now, Andi plays a game . . . the kind that keeps her heart safe but her needs met. Andi keeps men for one weekend, 3 days, of fun and excitement then she is done. She gets all the fun she wants with no commitment and no disappointment. Then Jackson happened . . .

pizap.com13924142610911

Jackson is rich. successful, handsome and oozes sex! But, Jackson comes with his own personal relationship drama that has left him scared too. When he hears Andi offering her game up to a stranger in a bar he decided to play along. He is completely down for a weekend of fun with no emotional attachment at the end. The weekend started out super hot right from the start in the club office . . .

But it does not take long into their 3 days for you to be able to tell that what they are feeling is more than sex. When the weekend ends and they part ways you desperately want more for them. When life throws them back together can they get past their past baggage and work on their present?

This whole book had me enthralled. I loved watching these two characters develop both individually and together. The flashbacks from their darker days really helped shape the characters for me and gave me great insight into why they handled things the way that they did. I though that K. Webster did a phenomenal job at producing a strong debut and I cannot wait for the other two books in this series!

kis kis kis kis

Synopsis

Andi Stone is a strong, smart and independent woman, thanks to the help of a famous boxing trainer, Mack, and his protégé, Shane, who have respectively been like a father and brother to her. But that wasn’t always the case. Andi never knew what a “normal” life was like. Having been raised in foster care from the age of six after the death of her parents, Andi became emancipated at 16 after an especially horrible incident forced her into a psychiatric hospital.

Luke Woods, the family black sheep and street-brawler, is determined to be a successful professional boxer despite his family’s protests. He needs Andi’s help to get there. The wedge between him and his family over his past relationship issues and career choices is not easily overcome. Luke must learn to face the past mistakes, fears and demons that constantly plague him.

Fireworks and passions quickly ignite between Andi and Luke in the midst of the chaos that surrounds and threatens them. She never revealed the secrets and lies that have plagued her, but when she publicly inherits her family fortune, the living, breathing past comes back to torment her and threaten all that she holds dear. For the first time in her life, Andi must learn to rely on someone else to love and protect her or risk losing the man she loves.

Sometimes love isn’t enough. Sometimes it’s all you need.

Review

Crazy Maybe was a great read. It is told in dual POV so you are able to get in

both H/h respective heads. Andi is tough and super spunky; while she spends

her days working at either the boxing gym or at a local youth centre, her

evenings are spent singing karaoke in front of all her friends at their favorite

club. Now this is no ordinary karaoke, I’m talking costumes and sets! Andi first

see’s Luke at the club when she is on stage and for these two it is definitely lust

at first sight! When they cross paths again at the boxing gym the sparks are

flying! But Luke is not a relationship guy and Andi doesn’t do one night stands

so they decide to be friends. This last for a while and really adds to the sexual

tension! When these two finally get together it is H-O-T!

 

http://i1366.photobucket.com/albums/r775/Danalamothe/45914-HOT–Imgur-lVhX_zps34b41114.gif

Both Andi and Luke have secrets and issues from their past however I

didn’t find this book to be overrun with relationship angst which was very

refreshing! I don’t want to give too much away but this book fairly long and jam packed

with loads of super-hot sex, very romantic love, emotional heartbreak and

page turning suspense!

 My Andi and Luke!
