Event Organized by: Literati Author 

Synopsis:
I’m not a philosophical kind of bloke, but I know something about luck. A childhood on the wrong side of advantage will teach you that. It’s all a matter of chance. It’s both your circumstances and the chances you take. So I've always been a gambler and a ladies' man — they love me and I love them. Now I've found one like no other — an American, Allison Wright.

About the Author:
Mary Whitney blames Laura Ingalls Wilder and Margaret Mitchell for her obsession with romance
novels. At an early age, Mary fell in love with the Little House series and its dreamy hero, Almanzo
Wilder, who only wanted Laura to be Laura. Like many women, Mary later graduated to the ultimate,
tall and dark bad boy, Rhett Butler, who loved Scarlett despite her flaws.
Mary has lived around the U.S., and after a first career in the non-profit world and politics, she's settled
in Northern California with her husband and daughters. She spends her days writing characters she
hopes somehow capture the romance of Rhett and Scarlett and Almanzo and Laura. She's a firm believer in what Rhett says to Scarlett: "You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how.

Finger Bang by Jade C. Jamison Release Week Giveaway & Excerpt

Finger Bang is live and looks like some smutastic fun!  Check out the synopsis, excerpt and book giveaway below.


Title: Finger Bang
Author: Jade C. Jamison
Release Date: June 29, 2014


Synopsis:
Orgasmic Meditation? Therapeutic?! Kaylee Baker is horrified when her girlfriends suggest a trip to artsy Boulder, Colorado, to check out the latest craze. What her friends don’t know about Kaylee is that she is a little repressed, bordering on frigid, and the idea of a complete stranger bringing her to orgasm--therapeutic or not--is horrifying.

Blaze Donahue has admired Kaylee from afar for quite some time, and part of the reason he’s kept his distance is because he’s had no indication that she might even be interested. But when he’s given the opportunity to offer her his own version of OM with no strings attached, he makes an offer she has a hard time refusing.

When there are undeniable sparks between the two, Kaylee runs, afraid of the overwhelming feelings she has for this gorgeous, sensitive guy. Blaze feels compelled to convince her otherwise but wonders if he’ll be able to crack through the ice surrounding this sweet girl. Can they find true love or will it just be a one-time O?

Excerpt:
Rachel wasn’t waiting for anyone to keep up. “I read an article on it earlier today, so then I  Googled it. Have any of you ever heard of tantric sex?” Shannon nodded her head but Maddy 
said no. Kaylee shook her head, but Rachel was already storming the castle. “Well, the concept is similar. It’s all Buddhist and higher level and stuff...but it’s fucking orgasms, you know? I mean...that shit’s insane! And to have someone doing it to you without expecting a blowjob in return?” She laughed. “I am so there.”

Maddy laughed along with her friend but then said, “Doesn’t that just make the person bringing it on an overpaid pretentious whore?”

“You would think so, but no. They are totally serious about it. You even keep your shirt on! 

They say they want to remove the goal—you know, that you have to orgasm. It’s more about the experience, focusing on the sensations. And it’s fifteen minutes. That’s it. And then you talk about it.”

Shannon burst out laughing. “You talk about it? What?! ‘Baby, was it good for you’?” Rachel giggled. “No. Maybe. I don’t know!” The poor waiter handed Rachel her new drink and she donned a lustful smile. The alcohol was definitely talking. 

“Thank you so much. I will be tracking you down later. I want to stuff a tip down your pants.”

He smiled again, and Kaylee could see he was nervous. She thought he must have imagined 

Rachel as a jaguar, and if she got anywhere near him on the open plain, she’d chase his ass, knock him down, and tear into his flesh.

Kaylee suspected Rachel just might consider it. The girl got horny when she drank, and her lips got loose to boot, so her sex life (or want of one) was not a secret when she was imbibing.

Rachel said, “We are going to Boulder next week. We have to do this.”

Kaylee felt the blood drain from her face. No way. No way in hell was she going to do something crazy like that.

“Oh, my God, yes!” Maddy said, her voice higher in pitch, close to a squeal. Shannon was 

enthusiastic as well, her head pumping up and down with vigor. The three women then turned to look at Kaylee.

She was going to have to say something. Damn it. She waved her hands in front of herself. 

“Oh, no, girls. That’s way out of my comfort zone.”

Rachel reached across the table, patting Kaylee’s hand. “Exactly why you have to do it.”

New M/M Rock Star Romance - Being Sawyer Knight by Nicola Haken Review & Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

I love this rock star m/m second chance romance in a big way. Check out my review of Being Sawyer Knight by Nicola Haken. Don't forget to enter Nicola's giveaway for a chance to win a $25.00 Amazon gift card. Happy Monday! 


Being Sawyer Knight Blog Tour Button.jpg

As lead singer and guitarist of the internationally renowned Souls of the Knight, Sawyer Knight is living a life most men can only dream of. He’s surrounded by music, fame, wealth, women throwing themselves at his feet. He has everything…
Yet he has nothing.

Life as one of the world’s most sought after rock stars is tiring, oppressive and lonely. He spends every day being who the world wants him to be, who his manager tells him to be, who his mother expects him to be… all the while fighting against who he really is. Truth is, he’s used to it. He’s actually gotten pretty good at pretending… at living the lie.

Until Jake Reed, his ex-best friend and the only person who’s ever made him ‘feel’, waltzes back into his life as the band’s new head of security. Jake wants Sawyer – always has, always will. Now, he just needs to get Sawyer to admit that he feels the same…

“You will be mine, Sawyer Knight. The faster you try to run the quicker you’ll fall to your knees. Then, Sawyer… then you’ll be too weak to resist.





Being Sawyer Knight (Souls of the Knight, #1)Being Sawyer Knight by Nicola Haken
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Title: Being Sawyer Knight
Series: Book #1
Author: Nicola Haken
Release Date: June 24, 2014
Rating: 4.5- 5 stars
Cliffhanger: No – Can be read as a standalone.

Sawyer Knight is an international rock star.  On the surface it appears that he has it all -- the hot groupies, fame and fortune.  But one thing is missing from his life. Ever since his best friend kissed him years ago he thought about him and what that kiss meant. Sawyer didn’t want to admit he was gay…to himself or to his fans.

Seventeen-year-old Jake Reed kissed his best friend Sawyer in a bold attempt to show him how he really felt about him. He knew he was moving with his family across the world and would probably never see the boy he fell in love with. What did he have to lose?  Sawyer pushes his best friend away and tells him he isn’t gay. Sawyer didn't want to be attracted to his friend. But why did he love that kiss so much? Why didn’t he feel the same way when he was with girls?

Years go by, and Sawyer never forgot the encounter with Jake. He rejected his best friend and never saw or spoke to him again. His life was filled with meaningless sex with groupies...but he knew the truth.

Jake thrusts himself back into his life as his new head of security. Sawyer is getting death threats, and Jake and his team have been tapped to protect Sawyer's band. Sawyer pushes him away again...but Jake knows his kisses tells no lies.

I LOVED Being Sawyer Knight. This steamy and sexy second chance rock star romance took me by surprise. Sawyer and Jake were both such likeable characters.  I have to say I wasn’t sure I liked Jake at first since he was so aggressive and cocky. Sawyer probably needed a body guard to protect him against Jake at first.

This sexy and sweet page turner warmed my heart and ended up fogging over my Kindle screen. Great writing, just delicious m/m chemistry and such a fun book. Fans of Kindle Alexander and Ann Lister will devour being Sawyer Night.  I can’t wait to read Ryder’s story in Taming Ryder (Souls of the Knight #2).

“I need to talk to you,” was how I greeted Sawyer when he opened the door to his dressing room. We had an hour to wait before the stylists and makeup artists were available to prepare the guys for the shoot, so they were all chilling back in their respective dressing suites.
“Um,’kay,” he said nervously, backing into the room. I followed him inside and then turned back to the door, locking it behind me. That move caused his Adam’s apple to bulge as he swallowed nervously. “W-what’s up?”
“You looked beautiful on that stage,” I said, advancing towards him. Instinctively he backed away, but I kept moving forward until he was pressed against the wall. “My dick was so hard for you, Sawyer. It’s been hard for you

Love of a RockstarLove of a Rockstar by Nicole Simone
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Title: Love of a Rockstar
Series: No
Author:  Nicole Simone
Release Date: February 11, 2014
Rating: 3.00 -3.50 stars
Cliffhanger: No.

Eighteen year old Marlene is abandoned by her boyfriend Luke while she was eight months pregnant.  He takes off to pursue his dream of being a rock star.  Four years later Luke is a mega-rock star and shows up at her job while on tour and wants to meet his daughter and get his girl back.  But Marlene has found a new boyfriend and she and her daughter are about to move to France with him. Sparks fly and Luke has only a few short days to prove he is worthy of his ex and his daughter before they leave the country.

I had a difficult time forming any sort of a connection with Marlene and Luke. Luke was an uber dbag with no redeeming qualities. Marlene was a bit of a door mat and the way she dealt with her boyfriend wasn’t entirely fair.  I wish that some of the dialogue with her family was shorter and the plot was infused with a better balance of drama, angst and some additional character development. Love of a Rockstar ended too abruptly. I wish there had been an epilogue to tie up loose ends.  Overall, this was a sweet and sappy second chance romance.

Check Out Invincible by Alana Albertson


Holy sh#t this sounds like a crazy romance thriller!  Check out Invincible by Alana Albertson. I just added it to my TBR list. It just re-released with a new cover and contains Annie's POV!  



Synopsis:
 I’ll be honest with you—I’m no hero. Sure, the media tries to brand every Navy SEAL as some kind of Batman dressed in cammies. There’s even a line in one of our cadences: Superman is the man of steel, he ain’t no match for Navy SEAL. You’ve seen the movies—we’re infallible, invaluable, invincible. But that night, the one you read about in the papers … all I really wanted to do was get laid.

One harmless fuck with an Aruban whore, no strings attached. I picked her out of a lineup—wild, dark hair, long legs and a crooked smile. After she sucked me off, I relaxed back onto the creaky, cum-stained cot, thankful for the blissful moments she gave me when I actually forgot for a second the faces of my buddies who died because I made the wrong call, the tears of the children I couldn’t save, and the eyes of the enemies I slaughtered during their last seconds of life.

But before I left, her hazel eyes peered into my soul. She whispered in a distinct Californian accent, “My name is Annie Hamilton. I’m an American citizen. I was kidnapped on spring break five years ago. You’re my last hope. Please save me.”

One desperate plea. This wasn’t a Hollywood blockbuster or a New York Times best-selling thriller. I knew this time there was no room for excuses, no margin for errors. I had one chance to put on the cape and be her hero.

Publisher’s Note: This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places, and incidents are a product of the author’s imagination. Locales and public names are sometimes used for atmospheric purposes. Any resemblance to actual people, living or dead, or to businesses, companies, events, institutions, or locales is completely coincidental. Expanded edition, with Annie's POV, 15,000 more words, new twist, more emotion. This is a full length novel, 60,000 words. New Adult Romantic Thriller. This book is intended for readers 18+.

Finally he pulls away and looks at me again. His eyes are a little watery, like he’s been crying. “Run away with me.” There’s desperation in his eyes, a silent plea.
I bite down on my lip. “What?”
He sits up and traps my face between his hands. “Run away with me, Lolita. We can start over and I’ll keep you safe. Please tell me you trust me enough to run away with me, like you said to me when we were fourteen. God I wish I would have just done it… Things would have been so different if I just done it back then.” He pulls me against him again, embracing me tightly.
I remember the day my mom died, right before I found her in my dad’s arms in the driveway, I’d suggested to Layton that we run away. I’d never liked the world I grew up in and leaving seemed like such a great idea—still does. I just wish I

A Love Story Set In Napa Valley...Nowhere But Here by Renee Carlino

Check out Nowhere But Here by Renee Carlino.  Romance with Napa Valley setting...sign me up for this one.  

Title: Nowhere But Here
Author: Renée Carlino
Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Nowhere But Here:
A Chicago reporter in her mid-twenties unexpectedly finds love in Napa Valley when she’s assigned to spend a week with a famously reclusive genius.
Kate Corbin has lost her spark. From the outside, her life seems charmed. She has a handsome, long-term boyfriend and a budding journalism career at a popular Chicago newspaper. But in reality, her relationship is going nowhere, and she’s quickly losing motivation for what she once believed was her dream job. When her boyfriend dumps her unceremoniously, Kate loses all hope of finding love.
With no living family and few friends, Kate confides in her boss. Trusting that the hungry, ace reporter is buried somewhere deep inside, he gives Kate the opportunity to jumpstart her career. The assignment: to interview the famously reclusive R.J. Lawson, a wealthy tech genius who disappeared years ago but recently reemerged as a Napa Valley vintner. The week takes an unexpected turn, however, when Lawson refuses to divulge any information. Desperate for a lead, Kate turns to Jamie, a vineyard hand who shows her the romance of wine country—and stirs her aching heart. But his connection to Lawson is ambiguous, and when Jamie disappears before the end of the week, Kate is left to investigate another story: the truth behind the man who stole her heart.
USA TODAY bestselling author Renée Carlino explored love and heartbreak in her beautifully written debut Sweet Thing, and her newest novel does not disappoint. For fans of Colleen Hoover, K.A. Tucker, and Katja Millay, Nowhere But Here is a stirring and satisfying romance that you won’t want to put down.

The Sergeant by Christa Tomlinson - Review & Giveaway


Check out my review of The Sergeant by Christa Tomlinson. A signed paperback is up for grabs!



Synopsis:
“You’re the only one I want to control. The only one whose submission I want, need, and crave with every part of me, every second of every day.”
– Sergeant Logan Pierce
Sergeant Logan Pierce: Head of Houston’s elite SWAT team. He leads his squad with cool efficiency, taking down rough criminals while keeping his team safe. But behind closed doors he sets a darker part of himself free. He’s a Dominant in the world of Bondage and Domination. As a Dom, he’s controlled many submissives, but never had one for his own. That’s because there’s only one man he wants: Corporal Clay Foster.

Corporal Clay Foster: Highly trained SWAT officer. He’s always the first one to face the dangerous situations of their job. Over the years he’d noticed his Sergeant’s secretly admiring glances and suspected his attraction. One night, with one kiss, he’s proven correct. Clay dives headlong into the rough passion of BDSM that Logan introduces him to. He submits to Logan’s control, accepting the sweet shackles that bind him to his Sergeant. But secrets, both his and Logan’s, force him to leave the newfound safety of his Dom’s arms.
Logan refuses to let go of what he’s wanted for so long, Clay as his own, proudly wearing his collar. Clay wants to be his. He knows it and Clay knows it too. Can Logan safely guide Clay through the obstacles that separate them until he can claim his submissive once more?

Meet the Author:
I love to write stories that are emotional and lovely with sex that is integral to the characters romantic arc. Purple is my favorite color, but I don't use purple prose. My stories involve straight couples, curvy couples, gay couples, interracial couples ... I write them all. I feel the same as many others; love is love and everyone should have their story told.
Thanks for reading,
Christa

Review of The Sergeant on Kindle Crack Book Reviews
The SergeantThe Sergeant by Christa Tomlinson
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Title: The Sergeant
Series: No
Author:  Christa Tomlinson
Release Date: April 26, 2014
Rating: 3.00 stars
Cliffhanger: No.

I love m/m romances, and I could not wait to devour a m/m SWAT team romance. There is nothing like a hot man in uniform. Here is my basic breakdown down of this story: A SWAT team Sargent and his underling fall into a hot and heavy BDSM relationship. I tried super hard to get into this book…all 585 pages of it.  There was an enormous amount of repetitious sex, and it felt a little “pornified.”Don’t get me wrong…I LOVE smutastic books…but I was not feeling the chemistry between these two characters.  It turned into smack, suck, screw, repeat marathon.  Meh. This book wasn't for me...but it might be for you!

Excerpt:
Logan headed out of the station after making sure everyone on the team was gone. At least he thought everyone was gone until he saw Clay standing at the door, staring outside.
“What are you doing?” Logan stepped up beside him.
“It’s raining.”
Logan looked out the glass doors. “I see that.” He laughed. “You jogged to work today, didn’t you?” Clay jogged nearly every day they weren’t on call and he didn’t have to haul all his gear. “C’mon, I’ll take you home.”
Once they were in the car, Logan didn’t have to ask for directions. He knew where each one of his team members lived. They headed up Dallas Avenue to
