Mix Match by Laurelin McGee **Release Day Launch**



Title: Miss Match
Author: Laurelin McGee
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Release Date: June 30, 2015
 
 
 
Summary:
Welcome to the sexy, crazy, wildly unpredictable world of modern matchmaking, where fixing up strangers is part of the job—but falling in love is an occupational hazard…

He's The Perfect Catch.

Blake Donovan is tall, handsome, rich, and successful—so why would a guy like him need a matchmaker? Andrea Dawson has no idea, but a job is a job. After being blackballed from a career in marketing, Andrea agreed to use her unique profiling skills to play matchmaker out of pure desperation. But when she meets her highly eligible—and particular—first client face to face, she wonders what she’s gotten herself into…

Is She His Perfect Match?

Blake knows exactly the kind of woman he’s looking for—and it’s the total opposite of Andrea. Though smart and undeniably sexy, she is simply too headstrong for a man who’s used to being in charge. Still, Blake’s blood pressure rises whenever she’s near him. How can he explain the smoldering attraction that sizzles between them? And how can Andrea deny she’s feeling it, too? Maybe, just maybe, they’ve finally met their match…

Beneath It All (Beneath Series Book 1) by Tori Madison




You.
Have.
Breast.
Cancer.

I wasn't prepared to hear those words. Neither was my loving husband, family or friends. And none of us were prepared for what life had in store after they were spoken.

I should have seen the signs all around me. I should have paid attention to the people who supposedly loved me, the people who I'd always trusted. But I was blind to what was going on. The effects on my flourishing career, passionate marriage, and carefree lifestyle would be insurmountable.

It was time to take control of my life and the overwhelming chaos. Time to make the choices that were right for me. Right for my future. The future I hadn't planned on.

My life didn't stop when I heard those four little words . . . it was only just beginning.





4.5 Victorious stars


Victoria Madison is a young woman, who discovers a lump in her left breast in one of her trips with her husband, Noah. She goes to check herself out and then she receives the heartbreaking results.

"You.
Have.
Breast.
Cancer."

Meanwhile, Victoria meets many doctors in her journey to kick cancer's ass. One of them is the sexy Dr. Blake Forrester, or as her best friends call him "Dr. McHottie". Someone who helps her take her own decisions, guides her and shows that he cares for her.


What can I say about this book? The writing was excellent, so realistic and honest. It was fun, painful and gave me so many emotions while reading it. I loved the heroine!! She was strong, funny, flirty and her relationship with her best friends was admirable. They were such a fresh breath when things got harsh on the heroine. Especially after 70% when something happened and had me boiling from anger. (view spoiler) And yes, even though there were signs for what was going on, I still couldn't believe the audacity of some people and the part they played in this story. I'm still trying to calm down (days later) and that says a lot.


Even though it's a book talking about breast cancer, it's not gloomy. On the other side, this book had plenty of sexy moments between her and her husband, fun moments with her friends and of course the side effects of cancer and how she dealt with them. So if you're afraid that it's a sad read, get this out of your mind. You'll get mad, you'll get sad, but you'll also smile.

Keep fighting ladies and don't forget to check on your tatas, because even though this was fiction, cancer is real.


PS: If you're worried about this being a love triangle with the doctor DON'T.

PS2: I may have stalked the author's page so I used the people she thought as the characters & one of her teasers *guilty* #teamsizzletits

Have you ever had your heart broken? Reece Jackson has, and he uses a peculiar kink to avoid intimacy. When the girl he’s always loved walks back into his life, will he be able to let his walls down? 

RELEASING JULY 14













She was forbidden.
I didn’t care.

As my best friend’s little sister, Macey Hale was off-limits, but the girl was tempting as sin and forbidden as fuck. I wish I could say that stopped me. I wish I could tell you I behaved like a gentleman.

I didn’t.

When she waltzes back into my life with that same spark I fell for, looking every bit the beautiful woman I knew she’d grow into, I have to force myself to remember I’m different from the man she once knew. I’m colder. Harder. And for good reason.

With my heart on lockdown and my hands aching to touch her, I set out to prove that I can keep myself in check this time.



No strings. No attachments.

And definitely no falling for her again.

If you love steamy romance, you won't want to miss this older brother's best friend romance.

This is book two in the Lessons with the Dom series, following The Gentleman Mentor. Both are complete standalone novels featuring sexy Dominant men you're sure to fall in love with. Enjoy!

EXCERPT

"What do you think you’re doing?” I find her in my closet, down on her knees and rummaging through a black duffel bag that just happens to hold all my sex toys. Apparently she did see this when she cleaned up.
“Ah, here we go.” Her fingers close around a generously sized flesh-colored vibrating dildo. “You won’t do the job? Well, I have a feeling this baby will.” She waves it in the air like she’s found the damn golden ticket. Then she rises to her feet and smiles sweetly at me.
For the love of God, this woman does not fight fair. She never has. “Where do you think you’re going with that?”
“Probably my bed, then the shower.” A line creases her forehead. “Do you have spare batteries for this thing? It might be a long night.”
“No way. Not happening. Give me the toy, Macey.” I reach out a hand, my voice as stern as the set of my jaw, my fingers barely avoiding crushing the crystal tumbler in my other hand.
A slow smile uncurls on her mouth. “Why, Reece Jackson, are you jealous?” She eyes the toy in her hand and then lets her gaze slip seductively down to the crotch of my pants.
If she really thinks that toy’s size has me feeling insecure, she’s insane. Certifiably. “You really don’t remember, do you?” Now I’m the one smiling. She’ll be in for a pleasant surprise later.
“I remember everything. I remember how you always made me keep my underwear on, and that I never actually saw you”—her gaze flicks downward—”down there. I only felt you with my hand, and since I had nothing to base it on, I assumed all guys were like that.”
“Well, in that case, you’ll be sorely disappointed with this toy.” I snatch the dildo from her hand and toss it back in the open bag.
“What do you think you’re doing?” she asks, planting a hand on her hip. “You left me hanging at the restaurant.”


“And you will stay like that until I say so.”





He calls himself the Gentleman Mentor.
Just reading his ad makes me feel more alive than I have in years. 
He promises to teach me the art of seduction … and show me the most sinfully erotic pleasures. He’s going to help me become the kind of confident, sexy woman men can’t ignore.
Six lessons … with the most gorgeous man … who happens to be a Dom.
The only problem … now that I’ve experienced his brand of delectable domination will anyone else ever compare?

She’s a client. That’s all.
Or it should be.
But with every lesson, she’s becoming more.
The secrets I’m hiding behind the image of the Gentleman Mentor make telling her the truth—and having anything real—impossible. 
I’m training her for another man, and that fact guts me every time I think of it.
I know she’s not mine … but part of me won’t accept that.
Am I willing to risk it all to keep her?



THE GENTLEMAN MENTOR is a full-length standalone novel.

Affairytale by C.J. English **Review**





I had an affair. The most forbidden and seductive affair, and fell in Love. 

He was a rare gentleman, intelligent and gorgeous; a man every woman desired. Every cell in my body was telling me that he was my happily ever after. I was stuck in a marriage of mediocrity, I ached for red silk romance and carry me away passion, but not with my husband. I craved Him. Living without him was cruel and unusual punishment, even for my wandering heart. 

Affairytale is a tantalizing memoir of sultry encounters, hidden grottos and secret hillside cabins. From the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes to the Southern shores of Maui you’ll fall in love with this tell-all memoir that pulls back the veil on infidelity and gives you rare look into hearts and bedroom of a real life extramarital affair. Woven with original love letters and scandalous text messages, this engrossing true love story is sure to break then win your heart. 

True Love always finds a way. 
Sometimes...it starts with an affair.






My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Affairytale is a memoir of a woman who fell in love with the right man while she was in the wrong relationship. For years this had remained a secret desire, but their chemistry was palpable and they couldn't keep it platonic anymore.

True Love always finds a way. Sometimes...it starts with an affair.


This is a story that will stick with me for a very long time. I think it's one of my unforgettable reads. And I'm saying that in the best way that you can say that this is a memorable love story. And most importantly? A real love story.


I don't like judging people. I never liked that and I was always against that. In fact, I'm a hater when it comes to gossip. Maybe because I was grown up in a big city, visiting my village often and seeing how much people there thrive in gossip. I always hated shoving my nose in other people's business and judging them and that's why I want to consider myself as an open minded person. So, I will not judge CJ and her actions, because right or wrong, she's a person and who is perfect? Who has a flawless life without mistakes, maybe even regrets? Even though I felt bad for the husband, Levi, I could understand CJ and the reasons that pushed her towards Grant. I adored their journey and I'll be watching out for their updates.

Summer or winter, Grant or Levi, risk it or save it.



I felt like a stalker while reading the book, like I found a journal and I was reading it behind their back. But I admire how bold and brave she was. And mostly because it wasn't a known fact.. (view spoiler) That makes me applaud for them even more. I loved how honest she was with her inner thoughts and feelings, with her actions, even when they didn't flatter her. She put herself out there, creased her image and how can you not admire that? Not all of us have the balls to do something like that.


I truly enjoyed this memoir, even though it was my first time reading one, I fell in love with this story and their journey. The writing was absolutely honest, raw and poetic in a way. It was such a heartfelt story and I loved it!! I even teared up at the last part of the book! Can't help but wish them happiness and to be together forever.

Vow by JC Emery**Release Day Launch**








HE REFUSES TO GIVE IN. SHE REFUSES TO GIVE IT UP.
Alexandra Mancuso knows all about regrets. She talked to the wrong person and started a war that’s ravaged her newly adopted motorcycle club family and threatens to cost Alex her life. Now, she’s cautious with the commitments she makes.
Ryan Stone, road captain for the Forsaken Motorcycle Club regrets nothing—except putting Cub in danger one time too many. The Forsaken Motorcycle Club has a plan to end the war with the Mancuso crime family and they need everyone’s head in the game. But Ryan can’t focus on the club when he’s so distracted by a certain reckless brunette. She gives him everything except for what he really wants.
Today, he refuses to take no for an answer and maybe, just maybe, this time Alex won’t be able to stand her ground.
True love always defies the odds.











Death comes in Armani. Salvation comes in leather.

Principessa to the Mancuso crime family, Alexandra knows a thing or two about living outside the bounds of the law. Suffocated by the future her father has laid out for her, she makes a choice she can't take back, changing the entire trajectory of her life.

Thrust into the dark and dangerous world of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club for her own protection, Alex finds herself faced with the last thing she needs right now: the man of her dreams. He’s sex in leather, the devil incarnate, and one hell of a kisser. But he’s also off-limits. Ryan Stone can be her friend, but he’s forbidden to be her lover.

Third-generation Forsaken, Ryan knows nothing other than life on two wheels, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He enjoys the many privileges that come with the patch, and the only laws he recognizes are the ones set-forth by his club. That is, until who he wants more than anything isn’t allowed on the back of his bike —or in his bed. Balancing his desire for her body, and need to keep her safe, Ryan tries to keep Alex at a distance. Finally having made a choice for herself, she’s done hearing the word “no” and will push boundaries even Ryan himself doesn’t dare cross.

Love is never more tempting than when it’s forbidden.











As a child, JC was fascinated by things that went bump in the night. As they say, some things never change. Now, as an adult, she divides her time between the sexy law men, mythical creatures, and kick-ass heroines that live inside her head and pursuing her bachelor's degree in English. JC is a San Francisco Bay Area native, but has also called both Texas and Louisiana home. These days she rocks her flip flops year round in Northern California and can't imagine a climate more beautiful.

JC writes adult, new adult, and young adult fiction. She dabbles in many different genres including science fiction, horror, chick lit, and murder mysteries, yet she is most enthralled by supernatural stories-- and everything has at least a splash of romance.
