AllIAm5_RGB300

I thought I had control.  I was so, so wrong…

I don’t need a relationship.  I have Hux, a decadent club where I quench whatever raw desire I choose.  I take pleasure and I give it – no strings attached.  So when Raya Rivers comes in asking for someone cold, emotionless, and filthy… well, no man ever takes his wicked pleasure quite the way I do.

  Only Raya is different. Vulnerable. And carrying some deep sorrow that gets past all my carefully constructed walls and inexplicably makes me care.  Now craving controls me.  Ice has given way to red-hot need.

  But Raya has no idea about my other life – my real life.  That I’m daddy to an adorable little girl.  My two worlds are about to collide with the force of a supernova.  Once Raya knows the truth, will she be able to accept all I am?

4 – 4.5 Stars

Wow – this story is just all the smexy feels! Drew’s story isn’t long and drawn out but man, it packs a punch! I really enjoyed this story – Jodi Ellen Malpas delivers an emotional and sensual experience with Drew and Raya for sure!

Drew is an expert and cold and emotionless, but amazing, sex, it’s what he does. Even if his friends around him are settling down and starting families, that’s not what Drew wants. He has his amazing daughter, despite her mother, and his work and the club. When he gets a request from a woman for that exact specialty, cold and emotionless, he thinks he’s the perfect man for the job. What he doesn’t expect is once he meets Raya, everything changes and right from the start it all feels different.

I loved Drew and Raya, especially the way Raya completely knocks Drew on his butt! He doesn’t expect to feel and oh man does she make him feel. And since this isn’t a long read with a lot of build up I don’t want to take away from that journey so I’m just going to say it is hot and sweet and all kinds of wonderful! I laughed and winced and my heart pounded and it was great! Jodi Ellen Malpas really delivers for Drew even if he and that precious Georgia have to work for it! I loved getting that peek at Jesse and Ava and their family and damn if Drew didn’t steal my heart!

This really is a wonderful addition to this series, seeing Drew challenged by Raya and how it all comes together. These two certainly weren’t looking for love, but hey – it always comes when you least expect it! Another great read from Jodi!

ALL I AM: DREW’S STORY (A THIS MAN NOVELLA)

Blog Excerpt

‘What do you want, Raya?’

She steps toward me tentatively, as if she’s questioning what she’s doing. And when she

reaches me, her chest pressed to mine, she gazes up at me. ‘I don’t know.’ Her eyes are wild and

unsure. ‘But I know that every time we’re close, something powerful takes over. And you’re trying

hard to fight it. You’re warm and cold. What are you scared of?’

‘You.’ My mouth is on her before I can think better of it, and I’ve lifted her from her feet

before my tongue breaches the seam on her lips. We should talk, but this is the only thing I know

what to say right now, and when her arms circle my shoulders, her mouth opening up, inviting me

in, I know she’s okay with it. I know she gets it.

With one arm around her waist holding her to me and one secured on the nape of her neck, I

walk to my office, my kiss deep, my blood racing, my heart bouncing off my ribcage. I set her on her

feet and take the hem of her dress, pulling it up over her head, losing her lips for just a second in the

process. She wrenches my shirt open, scattering buttons in the process, her hands immediately

finding my skin beneath. My forward steps encourages her backwards, our kiss deepening as she

unfastens my trousers and I push her knickers down her thighs.

We’re all over the place, desperation getting the better of us, a mess of tongues, hands and

bodies. I pull some strength from nowhere, seize her hands and break our kiss, breathing heavily.

Her unsure brown eyes soon prompts me to start ridding myself of the rest of my clothes, all under

her watchful gaze. Until I’m naked.

‘This wasn’t supposed to happen,’ she whispers.

THE STORY OF US by Tara Sivec

(June 11, 2017; Forever Yours eBook; $3.99)

 

How much can a man take before he breaks?

1,843 days. That’s how long I survived in that hellhole. They tried to break me, but I resisted. And I owe it all to the memory of warm summer nights, the scent of peaches, and the one woman who loved me more than I ever deserved to be loved. Now, I’ll do anything to get back to her.

Only Shelby Eubanks isn’t the girl I left behind all those years ago. She’s someone else, a stranger. My Shelby-my little green-eyed firecracker-would never give up her dreams, would never disappear into her mother’s ambitions. But I won’t give up on her. On us. I may be broken, and scarred, and not the man I used to be, but I will do whatever it takes to remind her of the story of us.

4 Stars

Wow – what an emotional and powerful story! Heartbreaking and beautiful and oh what a ride right from the first word. I’m definitely a fan of Tara Sivec, but this was a whole new side of her. The FEELS from this book, I’m still a puddle of mush!

The Story of Us is a second chance love story, yes, but it’s also a story about strength and healing and pain. Shelby and Eli definitely did not have the lives they imagined and now once again can hope for, but can they overcome and get back there.

This story puts together the pieces of Shelby and Eli, having met at teenagers and shared a secret romance and young love. But, then Eli is gone, he joined the Marines but he never came back. Shelby believes he’s been killed but he’s been captured and tortured – for years. He’s rescued and eventually gets back home, but what he doesn’t expect is to find Shelby there too. Her life certainly changed after Eli, her dreams squashed and she now lives under her mother’s thumb. These two truly deserve happiness together, but it’s not going to be easy.

Tara Sivec has created something very special with this book, it’s emotional and powerful and it’s one of those books you feel and experience. There are secrets and lies and hurts that run deep in this story, but to them overcome that, made my heart soar! I felt this story, the pain the beauty and the love! A wonderful, touching story that I won’t soon forget!

Excerpt

I just need a moment alone, to remember how to breathe and to remember how to push the hurt away so I can go back out there and do my job. Hold my head high with a smile on my face and pretend like dancing with Eli, being close to Eli, and letting him rain insults down on me, didn’t cut me in half.

As soon as I turn the handle and push open the office door, I feel something solid slam into me from behind, moving me faster into the dark room. I trip over my feet and an arm slides around my waist to steady me before whirling me around. I smell his soap and recognize his firm hold on me before the moonlight shining in the floor-to-ceiling windows behind me illuminates the shadow of his face, but that doesn’t stop the rapid thumping of my heart as the door is kicked shut with a slam and my body is turned and pushed roughly against the wall next to it. With the first touch of his hands, the first feel of the heat from his skin against me, I’m lost. I’m drowning in a pool of desire I’ve only ever felt with him, and I never want to come up for air. Every inch of my body is on fire, begging for more, needing everything I’ve been missing, but knowing everything about this moment is wrong. This can’t happen. I can’t want this and I certainly can’t act on what I’m feeling.

Before I can shove him away, shout at him, and tell him to let me go, his mouth is on mine. His chest pins my arms between us and I clutch a fistful of his dress shirt in my hands when my lips automatically part for him. His tongue quickly pushes into my mouth and I feel tears prickling behind my eyelids when I taste him, so familiar and so beautiful it breaks off yet another piece of my heart. One of his hands moves from around my waist and I feel the heat from his palm as it slides against the side of my neck to the back, his fingers gripping tightly to the hair at the base of my skull to hold my head in place. His kiss is punishing and hard and I can do nothing but hold tightly to the front of his shirt as our tongues battle together and I try to remember how to breathe.

THE BACHELOR AUCTION by Rachel Van Dyken

(January 31, 2017; Forever Mass Market Paperback; $7.99; The Bachelors of Arizona Book 1)

30094879

NOW IN PAPERBACK!

The first book in an all-new contemporary romance series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken.   

Cinderella never had to deal with this crap.

Jane isn’t entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn’t she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes—or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire—maybe do exist.

Except Brock Wellington isn’t anyone’s dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk—even if it was just a façade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it’s karmic retribution that he’s tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can’t have. But while they can’t have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . . .
