Stuck In Between by Blakely Bennett Cover Reveal

Title: Stuck In Between
Author: Blakely Bennett
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: March 24, 2014
Cover Designer: Yocla Designs

Jacqs is a twenty-eight year old woman caught up in an on again, off again relationship with Bond, who is her best friend and the one who causes her the most heartache. She succumbs, yet again, to his powerful charisma, but vows not make it into more than it is, a great night of sex.

Bond, too sexy for his own good, wants Jacqs for himself as he “dates” his way through the female population of South Florida. He selfishly doesn’t see the conflict of interest.

Red, Bond’s best friend, has watched Bond take Jacqs for granted for way too long and soon stakes his own claim on her.

Will Red and Jacqs budding relationship pull apart their tight-knit group of friends and will Jacqs survive being Stuck In Between.

I shook out my hair, put my shoulders back and stood as
straight as possible. I wouldn’t let Red intimidate me. When I strutted over to
him, his expression left me confused. He’d always been so cold, like a granite
statue and yet, I couldn’t read the new side to him.
“Why did you want me to come and what did you mean? Wait …
no … shit, what I really wanted to say was that I appreciate you coming to get
me.”
“Let’s go have a drink.”
“A drink?”
“Yes, you could use one.”
“Would you stop doing that?” I said, squinting up at him
through the outside house light that cascaded around him.
“Doing what? I just offered you a drink,” he said, resting
his back against his vehicle and folding his arms in front of him.
“No, you said I needed one. You’re so bossy.”
He laughed and said, “You bring it out in me. I’ll do my
best to temper the urge.”
“You have urges?”
“You don’t want to know,” he said, glaring down at me.
“Oh … I,” I stuttered, my nipples flaring at his intent. I
crossed my arms over my chest as well.
Grabbing my hand, he pulled me along with him into the
house and through the main sitting area. Dreamworld
played through the sound system. Cat gave me a questioning look as Red led me
into the kitchen. I shrugged my shoulders back to her. He opened the refrigerator,
fingered a Mike’s Lemonade and a bottle of Dos Equis, popped the caps and
swooped up my hand again in his large palm, leading me out to the back.
I loved all the palms and the large stone deck around the
Jacuzzi and pool. His two-story home sat on the intracoastal waterway, allowing
him to keep his boat right behind the house.
Two guys I didn’t recognize sat at the wrought iron table
by the pool, smoking cigarettes.
“Hey Ray, Charlie, glad you could make it,” Red said,
pausing but not releasing my hand.
“Thanks for the invite. She’s a tiny one,” one of the guys
said, tilting his head in my direction.
“She makes up for it with a big mouth,” Red said with a
smug expression.
I tried to pull my hand out of his grip, but he held on so
tight I had to use my free hand to punch him in the shoulder. I would have
preferred to punch his jaw but I figured it would hurt me more than him to hit
the sharp edge of his face.
His friends chuckled, leaving me even more incensed.
“And he makes up for his Neanderthal size with his small
personality or at least that’s what he calls it,” I said, purposefully looking
at his pants.
That made his friends fall out in hysterical laughter and
I felt rather proud of myself.
“Come on, you,” he said, dragging me back inside and up
the stairs to his bedroom.
I had never been in there before. So neat and organized,
it could have been a room in an upscale hotel except for the antique furniture
on either side of the fireplace and the art on the walls. A chair sat near the
entrance to the room, a pair of slacks over the back of it.
“What the hell is going on with you Red?” I said as I
finally managed to pull my hand away from his. “You’ve never given me much
notice over the years. How long has it been?”
“Five years.”
“I’ve been putting up with your crap for five years?
Jesus.” I took the lemonade from his hand and took several swallows.
“Take it easy, Jacqs,” he said, closing the door behind
him and leaning back against it.
“Stop telling me what to do, would you?”
“I can’t help myself,” he said with a slight smile.
“Try.” I sat on the edge of the bed, putting plenty of
distance between us.
“I didn’t much care for your joke.”
“Your friends rather liked it and you started it. Don’t
fuck with me and I won’t fuck with you back.”
“Do you have to talk like that? It’s very unattractive.”
“What the fuck … shit …um heck do you want from me?” I
drank more to boost my courage.
“I’m warning you, Jacqs.”
“Warning me? From what? What will you do?”
“Don’t push me.”
“I push your buttons without even trying.”
“I’m well aware of that.”
“Are you going to answer me?” I asked. “Because, if not,
I’ll just head home.” I stood, finished off my drink and took a step toward the
door that he blocked with his massive frame.
He crossed the distance between us, swiped the drink out
of my hand, placing both bottles on the corner of his dresser. Before I had a
chance to fight or protest he lifted me under my arms, off my feet, and placed
my back against the wall. He groaned as if it pained him and then he descended
on my mouth with his.
I tried to push him off me, but he remained hard as steel
and I finally gave over to the incredible sensations he stirred within me. I
took his large face in my little hands and that caused him to groan in
pleasure, deepening the kiss. As I wrapped my legs around his bulky frame, he
held me closer and carried me over to the antique chair by the door. He sat
down with me on his lap, and we just stared at each other for a moment.
Afraid of breaking the spell that I knew would end once
reality set in, I sat, waiting. He ran his hands up my neck, followed by his
mouth, kissing and nibbling. Chills fluttered down my spine and I moaned, “Oh,
Red.” Wetness pooled in my panties and I wanted him to take me. I wanted to
know what his cock looked like, tasted like. I didn’t care if we ever spoke
again afterwards, or if my motivations stemmed from getting back at Bond. Red
had sparked an intense need that required fulfillment and I wanted him to take
me.
Running my hands through his short cropped red hair, I
pulled his mouth back to mine and he took control. Clutching my wrists, he held
them with one hand behind my back, and bit his way down my chest. He unbuttoned
the rest of my blouse, pushing the silk down off my shoulders, exposing my
breast and hard nipples to the air.
“No bra? You’re naughtier than I imagined.”
“You’ve thought about me?”
“Incessantly. Keep your arms behind you,” he said as ran
his hands under my breasts and lowered his mouth. “I had no idea.”
“What?”
“For such a tiny woman, you have rather large nipples.”
I scrunched my face, not sure if he liked what he saw.
“No need for the funny face, I love them.” He sucked on my
right nipple and I closed my eyes in pleasure. His big hands kneaded my flesh
and pulled on my left nipple.
“Ohhhh,” I called out, arching into his caresses.
“Shhhh,” he said, “I think I heard something.”
“Don’t stop,” I pleaded.
“Stay the night.”
“That’ll go over well with Bond, for sure.”
“Did you have to mention him?”
The bubble had burst and in my embarrassment, I scurried
off his lap and buttoned up my shirt. I glanced in the mirror on the dresser
and smoothed out my hair.
He pushed into me
from behind, grasping my breast over my shirt. He nipped my earlobe and said,
“I’m not done with you, but I need to check on the party below.” He clutched
the nape of my neck, turning my head toward him and kissing me one last time.
“I’ll see you downstairs.”

Synopsis

Taken from Amazon

City girl Calista Coffman can’t believe her misfortune when she hits a deer in rural Maine on the way to a friend’s wedding. With her vehicle needing time-consuming repairs, she’s stuck in small town Maine for the week with nothing but the local hicks to keep her company. At least there’s the super sexy game warden that came to her aid on the side of the road to keep her entertained.

Will Holbrook’s given up on love after suffering a terrible loss in his past. But he can’t deny his attraction to the independent beauty that ends up stuck in his town, even if she’s a ‘flatlander’.

It’s supposed to be just casual, no strings attached, but even the best laid plans can fail…
A stand-alone novel at over 60k words for mature audiences only due to sexual situations.

My Review

One week in Maine was a fun, steamy and easy read. At 227 pages, it is a quick read and flows nicely. The book take place in a small town in Maine that values personal relationships over material things. When city girl Calista gets stuck in the town for a week, after wrecking her car, the locals do not know what to make of this city girl. But one local, game warden Will, likes her just fine.

pizap.com13918793939852

Calista is a city girl from Hartford, Ct who is driving through Maine on her way to a wedding. When she hits a deer and gets stuck in this small town, she is not happy about it at all. Calista likes to live the fast paced life the city brings. She knows that this small town life is not for her.

will

WIll is the local game warden in the small town in Maine. He loves his job, his town, and the community of people he surrounds himself with. Will is kind and helpful and always there for those he cares about. But will has secrets in his past that can make it hard for him to open up to the idea of caring for a woman.

From the very first time these two meet you can feel the chemistry between them. The majority of this book takes place over a very short period of time so their relationship developed very quickly.  It did not take long from their first meeting for him to be sneaking under the dinner table to bite her thigh (I LOVED that part.)

There were several things about this book that I very much enjoyed. I really liked how the man, Will, in this book is the one who is lovable from the beginning and the girl, Calista, has to win you over. So many times in books nowadays it is the bad guy becoming sweeter to get with the girl so it’s nice to see a girl with a bit of a bite to her.

This book is not lacking in hotness! These two are definitely well matched sexually. I love how they are not afraid to have their fun no matter where they are because they cannot wait a moment longer.

That being said and knowing that I did enjoy this book there were a few things I think could have been improved on. The dialogue sometimes felt a bit forced and didn’t flow as smoothly as I would have liked. This was not distracting to the overall story just something worth mentioning.

Although this book is not lacking in sex I often felt that the sex was geared towards only Will and as a woman I would have liked to have seen a bit more reciprocation. Though the sex scenes were hot and steamy sometimes they did feel rushed and I would have liked them to have been drawn out a bit more.

My overall thoughts on this book are that it was an easy fun and romantic read that will keep you interested till the end.

Blood Mate By Kitty Thomas Review

Synopsis

Blood Mate, a dark fairy tale…

Nicole has been happily married to big shot attorney, Dominic Rose for ten years, but soon after their anniversary he grows cold—as if she doesn’t exist. Meanwhile, another man has been pursuing her far too intently for comfort.

August Corinth is a six-hundred-year-old vampire, cursed to kill and suffer the pain of his victims each night until he can find the one woman who can resist his thrall, his blood mate. Once he’s found her, there are no lines he won’t cross to claim the promised salvation even if it means taking away everything and everyone she loves.

Review

This is my fourth Kitty Thomas book, so I like to think of myself as Kitty Connoisseur!  Hehe! See how I did that?  I really love her writing style, but I do not think there has ever been a book that she has written, that I didn’t feel pissed off about at the end.  I must be a glutton for punishment, because I always go back for more.  It is because her books are excellent. Homegirl can write her butt off.  Her books are always crazy as all get out and sexy as hell.  I just cannot resist.  Blood Mate is no exception!

Blood Mate, for me at least, was actually one of Kitty’s more tame books, but I still completely loved it.  I found myself rooting for August from the very beginning of this book.  I wanted Nicole to ditch the hubby and make my vampire happy!  I am not sure if I loved August because he deserved it or if I am just a vampire loving book ho.  Obviously Nicole isn’t, because she did not make things easy on my August, which led to a series of events, I cannot even begin to explain.  I am still not sure if Nicole is crazy and if this was all just a delusion.  Things just got cray cray and in true Kitty Thomas fashion I was all like…

http://i613.photobucket.com/albums/tt218/Odok12/wtf-animated.gif

I love this book!  As usual, Kitty’s writing was impeccable and her story telling was amazeballs! But, DAMN YOU, KITTY, DAMN YOU!  That ending just pissed me off, as usual.  The whole book was a complete mind fuck.  How can I love you and hate you so much?  So, when is the next book out?  😉  5 Smooches!

Author Bio:

I was born and raised in a small town that until maybe a year ago, you couldn’t find on a map. After high school I did what every wild child from a small town would do and kicked rocks to the farthest college I could go to. Which happened to be about 20 miles out of town, I didn’t trust my old clunker of a truck to go much farther than that. After graduating college with a shiny new piece of paper hung in a $3.00 Wal-mart frame I got my first “big girl” job with Synovus Financial Corporation.During the five years I stayed at the company, I bought a new truck, moved into my own apartment (in the same small town), and met the man who would eventually accept my craziness and ask me to marry him. I am privileged to call myself a US Navy Wife. My husband currently serves on the USS Hue City, which has been deployed more times during our marriage than it has been home. But we look forward to a three year shore duty in Colorado Springs.I have been very lucky to have had the support of my friends and family during the years and I look forward to many more years full of there snide remarks and sarcasm. I wouldn’t want them any other way.Personal Interests:Writing, Reading, Journaling, Hunting, Fishing, Driving down random dirt roads, cheering on UF football games, drinking beer around a camp fire, shopping, pretending to be food reviewers at restaurants, slip and sliding in the backyard with my nieces, and crafting.

Synopsis

Wanderlust’s bad-boy rocker, Alan Price, didn’t know what he wanted until it was gone—or at least heading for the door. Alan’s closest friend, Nora Barton, who also happens to be the manager of his band, has confided her attraction to a rival musician. Alan is stunned; even more so when the beautiful Nora asks him to teach her the sexual skills she’ll need to seduce the infamous Derek Devlin.  Alan tries to dissuade her, but Nora’s mind is made up. His only hope is to win her over the way he knows best—in bed. But even Alan’s prodigious sexual talents may not be enough to convince Nora to give him a chance to be more than a friend.
Review

I pretty much detest novellas in general.  I know that is horrible to say but I often find them rushed.  They usually leave me with a feeling of incompleteness.  Not this one, folks!  I could not believe this was Felina Dark’s first book.   It was not rushed at all.  I really felt like I read a complete novel.  I think this must be really hard to do as an author because I have read some really crappy novellas.  It was really eloquently written and the characters were completely lovable.

I loved how Alan was your quintessential rocker, hooking up with groupies, and generally whoring around but still having a sweet and sensitive side.  Total bad ass sweetness.  I really dig this in my rocker books, but the real star of this book, for me, was Nora.  Which is totally rare.  I usually like the boys better.  😉  But, Nora just drew me in.  She was just so quirky and logical, and innocent, and a seductress at the same time.  She was a big heap of contradictions and I absolutely loved her for it.

Now, lets get to the nitty gritty of what I REALLY loved about this book.  Holy moley, the sex was smokin hot!  Whew!  Felina really knows how to write some erotic scenes.  It was dirty dirty and I was glued to my kindle.

“Suck me, Nora, let me come, just let–” The rest of his words were not even coherent to him.

For a moment, he submerged.  Then felt pleasantly afloat in the warm harbor of Nora’s mouth.  He let himself drift in that exquisite pool as his body hung limp and weightless.  It took long minutes for him to resurface.  Gradually, visions of brooms and cartons and whiffs of ammonia slowly ebbed and flowed with the glossy feel of hair and the labored sound of her breathing.

Hot tears stung his cheeks. He clenched and unclenched to chase the numbness from his fingers before he sat up and looked at Nora.

Do y’all see what I am talking about?  Virgin Nora made hot bad boy Alan cry with a BJ.  Girl has skills.  Nora is bad ass!  But anyways, wasn’t that hot?  Felina can really write a dirty scene and make it sound eloquent and sweet.  Phew!

Great debut book, Felina Dark.  She informs me there is more to come in this series and I have to tell you, I am literally dying to get my hands on the next book.  4 out of 5 smooches!

 

 

But it now below!
