The Way We Burn EBook Cover

THE WAY WE BURN

M. Leighton

Irresistible attraction.  Unimaginable danger. 

I knew from the moment Noah Williamson walked into the diner that he was haunted—deeply haunted—but I couldn’t resist the lure of him.  He was gorgeous and fascinating and mysterious, and like a delicate moth to a brilliant blue flame, I was drawn to him.  Drawn to his fire.

But if I’d known about his job, about what happened to his wife, I’d have run the other way.  Before I got caught up in the red-hot blaze of his life.  Before everything in my world got burned to the ground.

It’s too late to run now.  I hesitated and that was it. I fell. I fell for him before I knew there was danger in loving him.

Noah once told me that this is the way we burn—together or not at all.  At the time, I didn’t know what that meant.

Now I do.

The Way We Burn is a love story…with a kicker!  Suspense, chemistry, and twists galore, I can’t wait for you to jump in!  But don’t be afraid.  This is a stand alone VERY romantic story with a VERY satisfying ending.  I promise:)  xoxo  M

5+ Stars

HOLY WOW – this book blew me away! I think I spent the second half of the book going ‘Wait, what…wait…OH MY GOD…this is happening!’ Michelle Leighton just rocked my world, I thought I was hooked from the start but then pieces start coming together and HOLY CRAP I could not put it down. Absolutely brilliant and thrilling and I am still thinking about this book. This is an absolute MUST READ!

Noah, Noah, Noah! I don’t even know where to start! I have to make this spoiler free because this book just has to be experienced, but oh Noah! He’s living a shell of a life after his daughter is murdered and his wife is missing. The husband is always the first suspect right, well not Noah. He’s determined to find out what happened to his family. Then there’s Poppy, the waitress in the little diner Noah frequents. He sits in the same spot and orders the same thing just hoping to hear her voice. But then he lets her in, just a little bit at first and then more and more and Poppy becomes something special. But the past comes back in a very real way and Noah and Poppy have to face that, can they do it together?

I have to say that I have been a Michelle Leighton fan for pretty much ever, I love her words and her characters and her ability to bring the feels and this book owned it all! I fell for these characters, especially Noah and his pain and darkness and I just didn’t see it coming! It’s a brilliant journey, a story of true love and the fight that comes with that love. I want to read this book again and again just to feel it some more. A must read, a heart stopper, a book that will stay with me! Thank you for this journey Michelle!

Tortured Noah (1)

Something in me snaps.
He’s halfway down the first set of steps when I stop him again.
“Noah?”
His head jerks back and he pins me with those glorious eyes. I start toward him before I can change
my mind, walking quickly down to meet him on the stairs.
I stop on the step above his and stare down at him. The blue of his irises has been overtaken by
swollen pupils and his eyes are the black, black, black of the night outside.
I’m on his level now, nose to nose, and my heart is racing like I’m standing on the edge of a cliff, the
wind howling at my back, uncertainty swirling all around me. Chills break out down my arms, but I
wrap them around his neck anyway, pressing my chest to his.
“Last week you said you wanted to know what’s going through my head,” I remind him. “This. This
has been going through my head since the day you walked into the diner.”
I mash my mouth to his. Hard. We both just sort of stand there, smooshed together, taken by surprise.
I wait for several seconds, hoping he’ll take it from there before I wither up and die. When he doesn’t,
I start to lean away, humiliation ready to burst forth and drown me. But before I can turn and run
back to my apartment with my tail between my legs, Noah brings one big hand to the back of my head,
stilling me.

Wordlessly, he watches me. Seconds pass. Or days. I can’t be sure which. Time ceases to exist, to even
matter when he looks at me.
A few achingly slow heartbeats thump by before he tilts his head and leans in, softly brushing his lips
over mine.
Finally.
I exhale the breath I’d been holding. I was so nervous, I don’t think I’ve breathed since I opened my
door.
But I’m breathing now. Breathing him in, gulping in this moment, tucking it into some treasured
corner of my soul.
I close my eyes, inhaling deeply, memorizing the scent of his soap, the smell of his skin. Reveling in
the hint of peppermint and nighttime leeching from his lips onto mine.
Back and forth, he rubs his mouth over mine, coaxing it open with a sexy artfulness I didn’t think men
really possessed. At least not in real life.
But Noah does.
He works my needy flesh like he knows it better than I do. His tongue whispers over the edge of my
bottom lip, breezes past the inside of my top one, and teases along the side of my own until a groan
bubbles up and out of my throat, unbidden.
I melt against him, my torso conforming to his as he supports me with his strong arms. I’m not
thinking. I’m not worrying. I’m not planning. I’m simply lost, lost to the storm of sensation he’s stirring
up within me. It’s building, the energy, and I know I’m just getting a taste of the tropical storm I knew
this man would be. Beautiful chaos lies at his center. I’m absolutely certain of it.
And absolutely drawn to it already.

Review Blitz: THE UPSIDE OF FALLING by Meghan Quinn

So thrilled to share The Upside of Falling by Meghan Quinn today – this book is an absolute MUST READ! I loved this book and Colby stole my heart, be prepared for one hell of a cliffy but it’s worth it!

Happy Reading!

~Jenn

 

 

 

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.

Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.

My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.

I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.

And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination.

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.

One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful.

Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.

Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single incident, I fly off course.

Jenn Review

4.5 Stars

Well, Meghan Quinn just completely wrecked my heart, oh my Colby!! I adored him, totally fell in love with him and now I need MORE! I need to know what happens! I have been a huge Meghan Quinn fan for a while now, I love her ability to make me laugh and swoon, but this book brought it to a whole new level of feeling! This is an absolute must read but prepare yourself for the cliffy, it’s intense!

Colby has always had one goal and he’s determined that nothing will distract him from reaching that goal, that is until Rory walks into his life and something changes, right then. He knows she dangerous to his plan but he cannot stay away from her and just maybe they can make it work together.

Colby owned my heart in this book, he has such a wonderful heart despite what he’s been through. He had a rough childhood but has used that pain and hurt to become the strong, determined man he is now. He opens his heart to Rory, she finds a way in despite his initial attempts to keep her away. These two fall hard and it’s amazing and beautiful and happy until reality hits. HARD. Colby is graduating, achieving his dreams of becoming a pilot, but that means being transferred. Rory has ties that keep her home, leaving isn’t really an option for her. Choices have to be made.

Yes, there is a cliffhanger, yes it will break you but it is completely worth it! I fell in love, I laughed, I cried and I am so ready to see what happens in the second book. I currently have certain opinions and am wondering how much they will change and what direction things will go. I have no idea what to expect but I NEED it! A definite must read!

 

 

Head turned down, pushing the sleeves of his white Henley up his arms, he swaggers toward me. His jeans hang low on his hips, held up by the same brown belt he wore the other night. His narrow waist directs my eyes to the center of his jeans, and I can’t help wonder what might be behind the crotch of his pants.

And then there is his chest. Barrel like, broad and prominent. His thick biceps showcase his strength, and the fabric of his shirt stretches over his shoulders and forearms. Having spent a lot of time at the gym, I’ve seen every body type, but Colby’s is different. He’s strong, built, but not like a body builder. His body seems to suggest the only kind of weight he’s been lifting is his own body, pushup after pushup. I can’t imagine there being barbells in his workouts, but I can imagine logs, cadets, and heavy machinery. He has working muscles, the kind you earn from hard, dedicated work on the field. In a word? Impressive.

Walking up to Stryder, he grips his friend’s shoulder and says something into his ear. A smirk crosses Stryder’s face before he moves over to our side of the bowling alley and takes Colby’s place.

Is he leaving? Already?

Might as well at this point. It’s not like he’s going to talk to me, not after my pathetic attempt at a bet. I should have known I was going to hang out in the gutter all night. It’s where I usually am when I’m bowling. I blame the ball. The thing has a vendetta against me.

Sighing, I prop my chin in my hand and watch Stryder expertly toss his ball down the lane, getting a strike . . . once again. And just like every other strike, he pumps his arm up in the air and celebrates. We get it, you’re good, no need to—

“Hey.”

That voice . . .

Stunned, eyes wide, not able to move, not wanting to scare him away, I keep my eyes trained forward, soaking in that beautifully deep voice of his for a brief moment before saying, “Hey.”

“Can I sit here?”

Still keeping my eyes trained forward, I say, “Sure.”

My body tingles with awareness of how close he is to me, that fresh laundry scent invading my senses, prickling the little hairs on my arm. My body leans toward his, wanting a little more, searching for anything else he might give me. I don’t know why he’s choosing to engage me in conversation, but I’m sure as hell not moving while he does.

“Sorry about tonight,” he says and he actually sounds sincere.

“Why are you sorry?” I mumble.

Reaching around, he takes my cheek in his hand. The callouses on his palm rubbing against my skin is a welcome sensation. As I’m turned toward him, I steady my breathing. I’m having a hard time slowing my heart rate because of his close proximity, and the unexpected touch shooting a wave of heat through my veins.

“I’m sorry you didn’t get to ask me any questions. I didn’t think you were going to suck that bad.” A playful smile tugs at his lips, and my heart sinks to the floor. Oh God, he’s so gorgeous, especially when he smiles.

Matching his smirk, I say, “I didn’t think I was going to suck that bad either.”

“I feel bad.”

“You should.” That garners a laugh, deep and throaty, the sound cloaking me like a shield, protecting me from the outside world, bringing me into a little bubble where we are the only two that exist.

“Ask me a question.”

Shocked, I swallow hard and say, “Really?”

He nods and holds up his fingers. “You get three.”

“Oh, three? Wow, I feel like you just gave me the key to your soul.”

Rolling his eyes, he adjusts his stance on the barstool and leans back, giving us some space, our knees still knocking into each other. “Easy killer; it’s just three questions.”

“Yeah, three questions I didn’t have before.” Tapping my chin, I try to think of good questions, but now that I have him willing and waiting, nothing comes to mind. I wasn’t prepared for this, he caught me off-guard, and now I feel I can’t be strategic about my probing. “Hmm . . . what do you like to do on the weekends?”

“Jump,” he answers.

Searching his eyes, lips quirked, I say, “Uh, you’re going to have to be more specific than that. What kind of jumping are we talking here? Like jump roping? Because that seems kind of weird to do on the weekends, and if you tell me you’re in some kind of jump-roping club at the academy, I’m not going to believe you.”

His lips curve up as he scratches the side of his jaw. “Jump out of airplanes.”

Oh.

Oh.

That’s . . .

Uh, that’s really hot.

“So you just casually jump out of airplanes?”

“I’m part of the Wings of Blue, the academy’s parachute team. We jump every day, at least two to three times a day after class and before dinner, depending on wind and ceiling limits. On the weekends, some of the guys, including Stryder and me, go to Springs East Airport and do civilian jumps. The more jumps we get in, the higher the chance we’ll be considered for big demonstrations, like parachuting into football games and major sporting events for the Rockies and Broncos.” Ummmm. Did anyone else just hear how many words he gifted me? And seriously? Does the man have no clue how incredibly sexy he is when he talks about something he loves? The expression on his face . . .

“Wow, that’s . . . that’s really hot.” I chuckle. “Sorry, I don’t mean to fangirl over your parachuting, but I guess I wasn’t expecting that answer. You just jump out of planes?”

He slowly nods. “Every day.”

“Anything to get you up in the clouds, huh?”

“Yeah,” he answers shyly, rubbing his jaw. “Okay, next question.”

 

 

 

 

 

THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVE – July 5th

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

4.5 Stars

Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland just rocked my world, and my heart! If you haven’t read Rebel Heir – you must read that first, plus it’s fantastic because Rebel Heart picks up right where that book ended.  Right into the action and drama and ANGST! I’m trying to do this spoiler free but man this one got to me! I felt like I spent half this book holding my breath, just waiting to see what was going to happen.

I love these characters, Gia and Rush own me! I understood their struggles and the push and pull, their situation is rough for sure. These two are so strong though and so is their love. I was rooting for this couple and I loved the way it all came together. I loved both of these books and their journey, Gia and Rush are amazing and prove how strong love can really be. The perfect amount of laughs, tears and angst! Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward have written some of my favorite stories and I’m adding Rush and Gia to that list!

How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons:

Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check.

Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check.

How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:

Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.

Check. Check. Check.

I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.

Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.

Especially when he’s mean to you.

Or so I thought.

Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.

That was sort of how it all started with Rush.

And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.

I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.

As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Release Blitz, Review & GIVEAWAY: King Consort by J.R. Gray

 So excited to share the Release Blitz for King Consort by J.R. Gray! As a crazy Royal family lover I was thrilled about this book and J.R. Gray totally delivers! You have got to meet Prince Louis and Xavier! I hope you’ll check out my review, the great excerpt we have to share and a giveaway too!
Happy Reading!
~Jenn

 

Title: King Consort
Author: J.R. Gray
Genre: M/M Contemporary
Release Date: May 15, 2018
Blurb
Avoiding
sleeping with women was my specialty, an art form even. As the future King of
England I couldn’t be caught sleeping with men. My whole life played out in
front of the paparazzi, and they didn’t miss a thing.
I had a
carefully crafted womanizing persona to maintain. My life came with rules, all
of which I broke when I couldn’t resist a one night stand with the enemy: A
beautiful paparazzo with a heart of gold. He may be the only person who doesn’t
want me for my title, and he can never be anything more than my secret.
But secrets
have a way of coming out and not only will they scare him away, but they’ll
lose me the crown.

 

 Jenn Review
4.5 Stars
I feel like I have to start by saying that I am one of those that is just crazy in love with the Royal Family – it’s my crack and so when I saw this blurb I knew I needed to get my hands on this story and man does J.R. Gray deliver! I loved everything about this story, the names, the situations, the QUEEN! I just loved it!
Louis is set to be the King one day, he understands Royal life and his obligations, which means he needs to marry a woman and produce an offspring. The only problem is that he is gay. He’s hidden it his entire life, especially once his sister Anne started getting in trouble and causing scandals. He knows he needs to remain the heir to protect her. He’s lived a life with the image of a playboy womanizer to avoid finding ‘the one’  but then the Queen informs him he’s out of time, he has to find a wife. A royal trip to Canada with a secret stop in Chicago puts Prince Louis face to face with Xavier, and he can’t take his eyes off him. It was only supposed to be a night of anonymous fun…
Xavier works as a paparazzo to pay the bills, but he’s not the kind of guy to hide in trees and take naked pictures. He’s assigned to follow Prince Louis and Princess Anne around Canada to try to get that shot, but now more than ever he has a conscience about what he is doing. What was one night becomes more as these two cannot stay away from each other. Things definitely heat up between these two while in Canada but both men know there’s an expiration date to whatever they have, but as the time for that ending grows closer neither man wants it end and they have to admit to real feelings.
I loved this journey and was so excited to see how it was going to turn out – and this whole expiration date just tugged at my heart!  These two are so wonderful together and bring out so much good in each other, their wit and hearts and chemistry is just perfection. The end just made my heart soar and holy moly I loved the Queen! I think J.R. Gray did a wonderful job with this story and I can guarantee it will be a book I read more than once!

Excerpt
Don’t move,” he said in a whisper.
“What are
we doing?”
“I want
these for me. I’ll sign whatever you want so you know I’ll keep them to myself,
but I get a different you. One only I see, and I want it on film.”
It was the
most romantic thing someone had ever said to me.
“I want to
be able to look at them and remember this. You.”
“I want a
copy.”
“Sure.” He
brushed his fingers over the small of my back, sending a spark up my spine.
“Now stand still.”
I indulged
him and stayed in place. He unzipped the bag and slid out his DSLR. He changed
something and then held it up to his face and clicked the shutter. Taking a
look at the screen, he moved ever so slightly to the left and held it to his
face again.
“Look at the
fire.”
I did as I
was told. He came close and moved my arm with the drink a fraction and placed
my other arm over the back of the sofa.
Click.
Click. Click.
He set the
camera aside and took a seat on the edge of the chair next to me.
“Done with my repayment so soon?”
There was a
light in his eyes. “Not a chance.” He looked me over, his eye stopping on the
top two buttons of my shirt which remained undone. “But you’ll want that photo.
To release for something. You look too alluring and regal to not have it. It
was more for you than for me.”
I was
shocked. “Let me see.”
He picked
up the camera again and leaned closer to me to show me the screen. I looked
like something out of a novel. Mysterious and alluring. I liked it. And I
didn’t like many photos of myself.
“You’re
quite talented.”
He sat
back, keeping the camera in his lap. “How much liberty are you giving me?”
I mirrored
him and looked him over, taking my time with my answer. “Why are you asking?”
Lust
crossed through his gaze. “Take off the shirt.”
I obliged
him, slowly working my fingers down the buttons. I slid it off and set it
aside. He looked me over, hungry. My cock stirred at the look. I’d never felt
so desired by another person. He slid forward on the seat and brought the camera
back to his face. I stayed as I was until he told me to move.
“Sit on the
edge of the table,” he said breathless.
I was glad
this was getting to him as much as it was me. It was entirely foreign to give
someone such a thing over me. To allow someone to take these photos. It was
daring and exhilarating. I’d have to be careful or I’d get addicted to the
acting out like some bored teenager.
I sat on
the edge of the table closest to the fire, and he moved back to take a few
shots. I looked up when he hadn’t said anything in a few moments to find him
just watching me. The fire illuminated his scar, and I wanted to kiss the
length of it, from his brow to his lips. I licked my lip and my chest rose as I
inhaled fully, trying to calm myself. He snapped another photo.
“What do
you see?” I asked, unable to stand wondering a moment longer. I wanted to know
how he saw me.
“I see
hunger,” he said as he came closer. “The way you look at me.” The camera hung
at his side as he stalked closer.
Author Bio
When not staying up all night writing, J.R. Gray can be
found at the gym where it’s half assumed he is a permanent resident to fulfill
his self-inflicted masochism. A dominant and a pilot, Gray finds it hard to be
in the passenger seat of any car. He frequently interrupts real life, including
normal sleep patterns and conversations, to jot down notes or plot bunnies.
Commas are the bane of his existence even though it’s been fully acknowledged
they are necessary, they continue to baffle and bewilder. If Gray wasn’t
writing…well, that’s not possible. The buildup of untold stories would haunt
Gray into an early grave, insanity or both. The idea of haunting has always
appealed to him. J.R. Gray is genderqueer and prefers he/him pronouns.

Jenn Review
4.5 Stars
Wow – A.L. Jackson has done it again! She delivers a story full of emotion, there’s pain, sorrow, forgiveness and love and she makes it one heck of a journey! I’ve been looking forward to finding out more about the mysterious Ollie and oh my goodness, what a second chance story this is!
Nikki and Ollie have always had a connection, a very deep one, although in the present it is one laced with pain, but it is still a connection that cannot be denied. She wants to heal him, he wants to protect her and then there’s the passion that always simmering between them. It is this connection that keeps them tied to each other and yet in another sense, it keeps them apart as well.
This was such an emotional read, I truly felt for Ollie and Nikki and their experiences. These two have been through so much together, feel so deeply for each other and yet there is still a push and pull between them.

Chase Hansen. Broke. College drop out. Male stripper.

My life wasn’t at all what I imagined it would be. I should have been finishing up college, interning with a well-respected business, partying with my friends. But instead, I was raising my seventeen year old brother, struggling to make ends meet. Love wasn’t even on my radar. Besides, what did I have to offer? A few crumpled singles pulled from my G-string? Defeated and exhausted, I knew I had zero chance of finding someone to love me just as I am.

Noah Carpenter. Angry. Betrayed. Doctor.

Just when I thought my life was going exactly as it should, everything turned upside down. With my final rotation in medical school complete, I finally achieved my lifelong dream of becoming a doctor. What I never expected was to catch the man of my dreams in our bed with the man of his. Beyond infuriated, I struggled to piece together the remnants of my life. Just when I’d decided to give up on love altogether, I found a man who loved me just as I am.

Jenn Review

5 Stars

I LOVE Melissa Collins and the emotional stories she writes and I loved Chase and Noah but what really made this a 5 star read for me was the way she brought their story together. I enjoyed the whole book, getting to know Chase and Noah, their struggles, finding each other and watching their relationship develop, but for me it was the last bit of their journey that really gave me all the feels and really made me fall in love with them!

Chase and Noah aren’t the most likely pair, but there is something that just clicks between these two right from the start. There’s passion and chemistry but it quickly develops into so much more than either of them were expecting. They have another connection to each other too, one that could change everything. But these two are just meant to be, as different as they are they bring out the best in each other even in the rough moments.

Overall, a great story with a beautiful ending that just made my heart so freaking happy!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.

How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:

Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.

Check. Check. Check.

I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.

Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.

Especially when he’s mean to you.

Or so I thought.

Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.

That was sort of how it all started with Rush.

And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.

I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.

As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’s heart-pounding thriller of a woman’s secrets—and a past that’s about to come out of hiding…
As an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.
Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?
Jenn Review
4 Stars
Wow – Lisa Renee Jones creates another jaw dropping, can’t stop reading, must know what happens book! Lilah Love is an FBI agent who ends up back in her hometown investigating a series of murders, and to say things are crazy is an understatement! She doesn’t want to be there, to open old wounds but doesn’t have a choice! And this woman, she’s intense and strong, she thinks like a killer, but what happens next is enough to shake her!
I really enjoyed this story, it kept me guessing with all the twists and turns. So many secrets, so many lies and so many bodies! This is a must read romantic suspense with an awesome female lead. She’s definitely not hearts and flowers, but she’s fantastic and I loved being in her head! This story has a great pace, fascinating characters and I so ready for MORE! Murder Notes is one of the reasons I absolutely love Lisa Renee Jones and the sexy, mysterious worlds she creates!
I scan the ocean, expecting it to turn to blood, but it simply crashes to the shore.
I turn to the house and take a step, then stop abruptly, a shadow flickering by the house. A shiver runs down my spine. There it is again. Another shadow. Someone is there. It’s then that I flash back to being on this very sand, with Kane grabbing my arms and saying, “I’ll take care of it.” And I let him, and did so without asking questions, until it was too late to change the outcome. Because I was weak that night and he was strong. But I am not weak anymore.
I pull my weapon and start running for the house, wind in my hair and face, my heart thundering in my ears, and I don’t stop until I’m staring at the blood splattered all over the patio glass, some kind of note pinned in the center. Adrenaline surges through me, but I am in my Otherworld now. I retain my cool. I walk to the patio door, using the end of my shirt to open the door, and then I systematically search every inch of the house. When I know I’m alone, I walk to my bag, pull on gloves and then walk back outside, yanking the note off the door. Returning back inside, I lock the door and pull the blinds and then I open the note. At the top is the alphabet, pasted in paper letters, with an X across the letter A. The note reads:
A is for the Apple a day that keeps the doctor away. But a doctor couldn’t help him, could he?
 
I KNOW.

To celebrate the release of MURDER NOTES Lisa is giving away TWO Lilah Love Mugs PLUS a Kindle Fire Tablet!


 

Title: Murder Girl
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Series: Lilah Love #2
Release Date: July 10, 2018

It’s Lilah Love’s job to inhabit a killer’s mind. The unapologetically tough FBI profiler is very comfortable there. But her latest case is making her head spin. It’s a string of brutal assassinations carried out across the country, each tied to a mysterious tattoo. Body by body, she’s followed the clues all the way back to her hometown. And every step of the way, the killer has been following her.
Here, beneath the glamour of the privileged Hamptons community, is a secret long buried but never forgotten. It’s bigger than Lilah. It’s powerful enough to escape the reach of the FBI. And it’s more personal than anyone can imagine. Because it’s hiding in Lilah’s own past. To fight it, she’s forced to turn to her lethally tempting ex, Kane Mendez. He’s an expert at bringing out Lilah’s darkest impulses. If she plans to survive, she’s going to need them.

EVER AFTER

A GAY FAIRYTALE

RILEY HART & CHRISTINA LEE

M/M ROMANCE

RELEASE DATE: 02.28.18

Ever After Cover

COVER DESIGN: JAY AHEER/ Simply Defined Art

Blurb:

As next in line for the Evergreen crown, Prince Merrick Davendall’s future involves ruling, marriage, and producing an heir of his own. But he’s long been tormented by desires that are far from princely. Especially when the beautiful Cassius is promoted to be his new valet, and Merrick is struck by a longing like never before—a longing to know him far beyond royal and servant.

After his father’s passing, Cassius Havendale’s sole duty is to provide for his family. A promotion to serve a pampered prince is something he endures only for their sake. Surely Prince Merrick has no understanding of true suffering of the common people, nor could he possibly understand what it’s like to desperately desire something he cannot have.

Except the prince is not at all what Cassius imagined. Kind, humorous, and caring to those in need, he also shares Cassius’ affinity for the arts. In fact, Merrick understands his deepest vulnerabilities in a most remarkable way.

As their affection deepens, the underlying tension between them becomes unbearable and they’re unable to ignore it any longer. But when the queen prepares a lavish ball with all the eligible ladies in the land in attendance, Merrick must fulfill his obligations to his country, and Cassius has the needs of his family to consider. They’ve long known their stolen moments would have to come to an end, but are they ready to give up one another and the idea of a happily-ever-after?

5 Stars

Wow – what a heart-felt fun fairy tale read – I absolutely loved it and was completely consumed by their world! Merrick and Cassius absolutely stole my heart with their love story, ALL THE FEELS!

Prince Merrick thinks his life has been planned out, he must marry and produce a royal heir, the problem is he just isn’t attracted to women. He knows his fate and is resigned to it, until he gets to know his new valet, Cassius and realizes he will never be happy with a future that does not involve loving him. The two cannot resist each other and begin a secret affair, opening their hearts to each other. They know it can’t end well but they cannot help themselves.

I absolutely adored these two, with my whole heart! Both are such good men with kind hearts, Merrick wanting to do good for his kingdom and Cassius wanting nothing for himself, only to provide for his mother and sisters. There was something so magical about this story and the relationship these two build together, it was a story I felt. It’s clear to see Merrick and Cas falling for each other that just makes your heart burst, but there’s also that underlying ache knowing it has to come to an end. Christina Lee and Riley Hart do an amazing job of capturing the emotion of these two on this journey. I laughed and cried and swooned my way Ever After and I loved every second of it.

Ever After was everything I hoped for and more! Two wonderful men, one a prince and one a poor employee, finding their happily ever after! It is romantic and charming and one I know I will read again and again just to revisit these two, a new favorite for sure!

Gay Couple Love Home Concept

EXCERPT

“Now you are all set,” Cassius remarked, slipping the national Evergreen sash over Merrick’s neck and adjusting it over his shoulder.

Merrick was entertaining the Duke of Cairn this morning for brunch. The king would be joining them this afternoon for ice fishing on the property. Apparently, the royal family of Cairn were avid fishermen, and when the king mentioned it a few weeks back on his visit, Merrick’s father told them about Evergreen’s abundance of freshwater trout. Merrick did not exactly enjoy the sport, but Cairn was Evergreen’s closest ally, and it was important to entertain them properly while they discussed pressing matters, including Merrick’s royal visit to their lovely countryside in the coming months.

“At breakfast I overheard the cooks going on about how handsome the duke is,” Cassius mentioned casually as he smoothed down Merrick’s coat and then picked at some lint on the lapel.

The change in topic threw Merrick, and when he did not respond, Cassius glanced up curiously at him. Merrick smirked as he wrapped his hands around Cassius’s waist and pulled him closer. “You are jealous.”

“Of course not!” he declared as his neck turned beet red. “I was only relaying the gossip in the castle.”

“Hmmm, that’s very peculiar since you’ve never seemed to be affected by gossip before,” Merrick remarked, backing him against the wardrobe, the innocent look in Cassius’s eyes completely charming.

“What are you doing?” Cassius asked, his gaze flashing toward the closed chamber door.

“I don’t give a flying fig whether the duke is handsome or not. I have never paid him any mind.” Merrick kissed his cheek. “What I do know is that a stunning man is standing before me, driving me completely mad. And I long to take his prick into my mouth.”

Cassius gasped and swayed toward him. Merrick wondered if Cassius felt just as feverish after spending such a sweet and intense moment in the woods the other day. He only dreamed to know more of him before it was too late.

“It is all I thought about last evening after you left me in the parlor room with the conservation committee,” Merrick added with a groan as he gripped the waistband of Cassius’s trousers. “I want you in my bed every night. In my arms. But I know it is an empty wish.”

“We…shouldn’t,” Cassius replied in a gruff voice even as he sank against Merrick, his prick already hard as the steel jousting stick on display in the Great Hall. “You make it quite difficult to properly concentrate on my duties.”

Merrick drew back immediately, searching Cassius’s eyes. “I am sorry. I do not want you to feel any sort of regret.”

“Never.” Cassius grasped Merrick’s hand and placed it against the bulge beneath his zipper. “But now I shall go around all day with the front of my pants uncomfortably tight while you socialize with the handsome duke.”

Merrick hissed and then promptly dropped to his knees before the valet.

Review Blitz: Gentleman Nine by Penelope Ward

We are a part of the review blitz for an absolute MUST READ today – Gentleman Nine by Penelope Ward! Oh man, I loved this book, totally swoon worthy and it’s Penelope Ward! I hope you’ll check out Channing Lord and my review!

Happy Reading!

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

 

Growing up, the three of us were friends.

He was the nerd.

I was the playboy.

She was the beauty.

 

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

 

I went off to college, and he got the girl.

Amber never knew how I felt.

They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

 

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.

When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

 

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.

One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.

Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.

Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.

She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend— me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.

When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

Jenn Review

5 Stars

Penelope Ward I absolutely love you and your books and Amber and Channing are exactly why! I adored this story and Channing stole my heart! This is the perfect example of totally meant to be friends to lovers story, it’s one that I already want to go back and read again!

Growing up Amber, Channing and Rory were the best of friends, kind of an odd grouping but friends none the less. Rory and Channing made a pact together not to date Amber since it was clear both young men were attracted to her, but Rory broke that when Channing went off to college. Years later Rory also breaks Amber’s heart when he tells her they should see other people. As Channing ends up Amber’s temporary roommate for a few months the two have the chance to reconnect, and then some when he discovers her looking on the internet for a hookup guy…maybe he can help.

This story surprised me and ultimately took a turn I didn’t expect but my goodness I loved it! I go into a Penelope Ward book expecting to fall head over heels and that’s definitely what I got, but with some good twists for me. Emotionally I felt like I was all over the place, expecting to feel one way and there’s Ms. Ward yanking my heart all over the place. There is fantastic chemistry and passion between Amber and Channing, but they also have this amazing connection built on years of friendship. This is a story of friendship, healing and true love and an absolute MUST READ!
