Marji
Working for a therapist who specializes in exploring hidden desires may sound like a dream job. It is if hearing other people’s fantasies come to life is your cup
of tea.
The truth is that I’m tired of hearing about other people. I want to experience what I’ve only imagined. 
That’s where Lace and Leather comes in.
A falsified referral and I’m in the door. One visit is all I want.
Lucas
Sometimes plans change and life throws curveballs. It’s at times like that when we must
force ourselves to move forward and take life a day at a time. 
I did that.
Now I believe I’m ready for more.
To find out if the desires I once possessed still exist, I make the decision to
return to a place where anything is possible, Lace and Leather. One visit is
all I want.
What happens when one visit turns unforgettable?
From New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig
comes another of her steamy novellas exploring hidden desires. UNFORGETTABLE is
a stand-alone story in the INDULGENCE series. Stories may be read in any order.

Erika Ellis is available to everyone, each night, on their TV—news at five-thirty and again at six o’clock. Viewers think they know her.
They don’t, not like I do.
I’ve watched her—closer than the others—not only on the news, but at all hours of the day and night. I’ve taken my time and learned her routines and her secrets. I know what she needs.
I’ll bring her fantasies to life, even the ones she’s yet to realize. I’ll be the one to teach her that in submission there is power. She’ll understand that she doesn’t need accolades from her viewers or the world. She doesn’t need to be primped and primed. My praise is what she’ll live for. Bound and helpless is where her freedom will be found.
The truth behind the stage makeup and faux laugh is that she’s mine—nothing she can do or say will change that.
She doesn’t know my unconventional plans.
That’s okay.
She will.
It’s time to make my move.
I’m Victor Cross, the only man for the job.

Blurb:


EAT. SLEEP. FOOTBALL. 

 

Those are Jackson Jennings, Jr’s three mantras. His entire life, he’s been a trained athlete with only one end-game: the Pro’s. No girls. No parties. No alcohol. 
 
EAT. SLEEP. FOOTBALL.
Repeat.  
Every Friday night, Triple J cruises the strip on campus, bored, lonely and conditioned not to party. But the night he meets Charlotte Edmonds on the side of the road, he wonders if his three mantras will ever be enough. 
 
BIG. DUMB. JOCK.
Charlie has no time for Jackson’s antics. Not when he’s stealing her food or teases her to no end, making her tingle in all the right places. But if she’s ever going to have a boyfriend, she’d choose one who isn’t a Neanderthal. One with manners and actual time to spend with her. Not a hulking man-child who cruises the strip at night, in his Big. Dumb. Truck.

5Star
Michel’s Review
Sara Ney has become one of my favorite authors in the New Adult and Sports Romance genres.  Her books are fun, snarky, cocky, oddly romantic, and emotionally charged. She captures the college sports enthusiasm as well as the free spirited sub-culture in the college academia world. After all , not every one goes to college for higher enlightment and the freshman fifteen expansion. Some go for the overall “experience”. Sara captures every aspect of college life while maintaining the individuality and personal vulnerabilities of each character. She lets the readers to become spectators in the magical experience of falling in love.
*
Jackson Jennings isn’t the typical jock on Jock Row. He is completely focused on his football career and his academics. He knows college and sports are his only chance to make a better future for himself. No partying, no alcohol, no girls, and no sex are his hard rules until he steals a grilled chicken sandwich from a smart, mouthed, sassy beautiful girl who isn’t afraid to hold those two extra burgers hostage. He’s willing to break a rule or two for that tasty morsel and he’s not talking about the burger. This snarky girl has captured his full attention.
*
What starts out as a snarky battle of the burgers turns into a sarcastic, sassy, sensual romance that is filled with sexy southern sass and snarky pillow talk. Triple J is going to learn to depend on himself and let go of all those rules he thought were the key to his future. There’s more to this jock than southern charm and sexy abs.
*
Once again Sara Ney captured my complete attention and had me laughing out loud while swooning at the same time. I absolutely loved Charlotte Edmonds, she wasn’t afraid to stand up for herself or her food. She saw Jackson Jennings Junior for the man he really was rather than the football star headed for the NFL. She loved every inch the sexy southern nerd inside and out.
*
For a good time and great read …. I highly recommend Jock Road by Sara Ney.

We had one summer. One perfect summer, until the day it ended.
Years later, she walked back into my life. Older. Sadder. More beautiful than ever.

Heidi McLaughlin – By the Seaside

Stranded on rocks between the beach and ocean, Alexa finds herself thankful for Lincoln Holt, an attractive survivalist who purposely loses track of the tide’s time.

Outmatched by Kristen Callihan and Samantha Young

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing date: November 19, 2019

OUTMATCHED-PRINT-FOR-WEB-3.jpg

What happens when a boxer finds chemistry with a geek?

Parker Brown can’t believe she needs to hire a fake boyfriend. When she landed her dream job in renewable energy, she thought she’d be entering a world at the forefront of progressive thinking. But the head boss prefers to promote employees who are “settled.” Thankfully, she’s found the perfect candidate, a fellow intellectual looking for some quick cash. What Parker gets is his protective big brother—Rhys Morgan. The tall, muscled ex-boxer with a foul mouth shows up just as her boss does, and now she’s stuck with the manipulative jerk.

Responsibility weighs heavily on Rhys. Now permanently out of the ring, he’s trying to hold together his late father’s gym and keep his younger brother, Dean, on the straight and narrow. To save Dean from himself, Rhys takes his place, ready to give this society girl a piece of his mind. Instead, he finds an opportunity. Even though they can hardly stand each other, posing as Parker’s boyfriend is a win-win deal. She gets to keep her job, and he’ll charm her star-struck boss into sponsoring his gym.

Problem is, they can barely keep their hands off each other. And what started as an easy deal isn’t so easy anymore. Because what future can a rough ex-boxer, afraid to open his heart, and a polished society geek, who has sworn off real relationships, possibly have?

They say opposites attract. These opposites are about to combust on impact.

About ABANDON:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes a new story in her Seaside Pictures series…

It’s not every day you’re slapped on stage by two different women you’ve been dating for the last year.

I know what you’re thinking. What sort of ballsy woman gets on stage and slaps a rockstar? Does nobody have self-control anymore? It may have been the talk of the Grammy’s.

Oh, yeah, forgot to mention that. I, Ty Cuban, was taken down by two psychotic women in front of the entire world. Lucky for us the audience thought it was part of the breakup song my band and I had just finished performing. I was thirty-three, hardly ready to settle down.

Except now it’s getting forced on me. Seaside, Oregon. My band mates were more than happy to settle down, dig their roots into the sand, and start popping out kids. Meanwhile I was still enjoying life.

Until now. Until my forced hiatus teaching freaking guitar lessons at the local studio for the next two months. Part of my punishment, do something for the community while I think deep thoughts about all my life choices.

Sixty days of hell.

It doesn’t help that the other volunteer is a past flame that literally looks at me as if I’ve sold my soul to the devil. She has the voice of an angel and looks to kill—I would know, because she looks ready to kill me every second of every day. I broke her heart when we were on tour together a decade ago.

I’m ready to put the past behind us. She’s ready to run me over with her car then stand on top of it and strum her guitar with glee.

Sixty days. I can do anything for sixty days. Including making the sexy Von Abigail fall for me all over again. This time for good.

Damn, maybe there’s something in the water.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Abandon teaser 3

Excerpt:

“You ready?” I gripped my drumsticks tightly in my right hand as the screaming from the crowd pierced my ears, causing an onslaught of adrenaline to pulse beneath my skin.

Drew, one of the leading frontmen for our band, Adrenaline, rolled his eyes and shot me a middle finger. Then he straight-up tugged his leather pants down below his hips to show off his legendary V.

We get it, bro, you’ve got an eight-pack where there’s usually only six.

With a flourish, I pulled off my simple white tee and shrugged. “What? Two can play that game.”

“Seriously, guys?” Will gave me a shove. “They already gave us shit last time about you two comparing dicks. It’s the Grammys, not the Super Bowl. We have to be clothed.”

I eyed him up and down. “Question. Was it your plan to go out there looking like the dad of the group, or was it just a happy accident?” He was in skinny jeans and a simple vintage tee and wore his typical thick black glasses that somehow still got him action from his wife, actress Angelica Greene. It was confusing when Will got action and I didn’t.

Not that I wasn’t getting any.

I inwardly smirked. I was dating one of our background dancers, while at the same time hooking up with one of Zane’s—both of which were performing with us tonight. Hey, it wasn’t like I planned for them to ever meet! And before you get your panties in a twist and start calling me a whore while chanting things like “I pray your dick falls off,” let me explain.

I have a solid reason for dating both women.

You ready for it?

The truth bomb of the century?

I don’t actually have a heart. You see, a long time ago in a land where my innocence thrived—you know, before the mistakes with the drugs, alcohol, and the time I carried a live chicken on stage and kissed it—I was in love.

Real love.

Not the kind where you say it just because you want to have sex with someone so badly, you’re willing to sell your soul to the devil. Twice.

Real, honest to God love.

Her name? Abigail.

Her current status? Breaker of souls and spawn of Satan.

BOOK TRAILER

4 star

Michel’s Review

Abandon by Rachel Van Dyken is a fun, angsty, and heartwarming second chance romance .

Ty Cuban, bad boy rocker, has been spiraling downward ever since he had his heart broken years ago by Von Abigail. After a disaster at the grammy’s, his bandmates force him to take a rated G break at a Rock Camp for kids in Seaside, Oregon. He’s looking forward to a little down time and a break from his own antics. It’s a chance to get back to the basics of music and a re-discover his passion. He thought he would find his passion through his music and his peace through sharing his skills with the kids but fate had another scenario in mind for him. Von Abigail is working at the camp and turning his world upside down once again. She broke him once and he will never allow her that much power in his life. Who is he fooling, his heart has other ideas.

When Abigail finds herself without a place to stay she has to turn to Ty. She knows he hates her but she also knows he’s a stand up guy with a good heart. Surely they can call a truce for two months.

Abigail and Ty are residing under the same roof and so far Seaside, Oregon hasn’t went up in flames. Maybe they can get through the animosity and find the love they both were determined to extinguish years ago. They both had their issues and have learned from the hard knocks in life. They have both grown up and are adults. They just have to let go of it all, abandon the past.

The Seaside gang is there to play their parts in being cupid. The dishwashers won’t get fixed, marshmallows are still a food group, the birds are still just as frightening, and the gang is still meddling,  Their group text are going strong and their seaside interventions are working. They still have other tricks up their sleeves for their stubborn friends. They want Ty and Abigail to have the same kind of happiness they have found in their lives. They just have to convince them to Abandon their past and open their hearts for a new beginning. Ty and Abigail deserve a happily ever after.

Once again Rachel Van Dyken delivered another heartwarming addition to the Seaside Pictures Series. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Abandon.

Release Blitz & 5+ Star Review: Wild Tendy by Toni Aleo -IceCats Series – Book 2

Nico has goals…and she’s number one on his list.

Nico Merryweather loves women—all women. Sure, they’re sexy and fun. But “Player” is an easy reputation to hide behind, a way to keep the good times rolling and reality at bay. He’s loud, he’s cocky, he says exactly what he’s thinking, and people just laugh it off because they think they know him. But Nico makes sure no one is close enough to know the truth. With a new season starting, he is ready to play the game he can control. They’ll all be watching Nico, the goalie, but they’ll never know the man behind the mask who is just trying to breathe. He hasn’t ever wanted anyone close enough to him to see the truth, until Aviva rams herself into his ass. Literally.

Aviva Pearce’s life is a collection of bad days all wrapped up without a bow. If it can go wrong, it will. All she wants is to run her business, take care of her sister, and keep her head above water. But with a father who is out to ruin her like he has himself and debt trying to drown her, it’s hard to stay afloat. Aviva isn’t the type to waste time dwelling on her misfortunes or to give up, though. She’s got too much fight in her. And she definitely doesn’t have time to waste on the wildly sexy, rich, showboating goaltender everyone wants. She’s got goals.

What she doesn’t know is that Nico has goals of his own.

And she’s number one on his list.

5+Star

Michel’s Review

Wild Tendy by Toni Aleo is the second book in the IceCats Series. This new series is a spin off of the Assassins Series and The Bellevue Bullies Series.  Like the Assassins series, Toni touches her reader’s hearts by tackling emotional, physical, and social issues that are prominent in today’s society. The reader can easily connect with the characters and embrace them completely . Wild Tendy is by far my favorite book she has written.

Most people think Nico Merryweather is a wild one. He’s a notable player with the ladies and has gained quite the reputation. He is also one of the best goalies in the NHL and has magic gloves. His fans excuse his bad behavior and the ladies encourage it. Nico Merryweather is not as simple or as easy going as most people think he is. His antics are a mask to hide the real Nico, the complex Nico, the Nico with extreme issues. He hides behind his goalie mask and his beautiful looks. His true friends don’t even know all of the man behind the mask. The man who wants something more out of life than casual hookups. The man who wants someone to accept him for who he is. He sees a therapist on a regular basis and is working on his issues. He’s a work in progress.

Aviva Pearce is a young woman down on her luck. She has been raising her younger teenage sister for over nine years. She’s desperately trying to hold onto the family sub shop while trying to get ahead. She’s still paying off her mother’s medical bills and trying to keep her druggie father from stealing what they have. When she plows into the car in front of her because she was distracted by life problems, things change. The hot guy she hit is loaded and trying to score with her. She thinks he wants a hook up until she realizes this guy really wants to get to know her. She had no idea he was the superstar Goalie for the IceCats or the most desirable man in South Carolina. It doesn’t matter, she doesn’t have time for a hook up much less a relationship. She has her little sister to deal with, a demanding business, and growing medical bills. The women in their family have a genetic curse and she’s determined to save her sister from it.

Life is hard but both Aviva and Nico have the strength to face all of it’s challenges. They just have to be willing to share their secrets and accept their realities.

I absolutely loved this book because both characters were vulnerable to things they couldn’t change but had the strength to live with it. I loved how they shared their challenging lives through their hearts rather than their heads. It was truly a beautiful story that will inspire so many people.

I saw Toni Aleo at the Naughty In Nashville book signing and had to give her a big thank you and hug for writing this book. This book showcased the true meaning of love and the inspiration to never lose hope!

About the Author:

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?

I’m ready to put the past behind us. She’s ready to run me over with her car then stand on top of it and strum her guitar with glee.

Sixty days. I can do anything for sixty days. Including making the sexy Von Abigail fall for me all over again. This time for good.

Damn, maybe there’s something in the water.

Abandon teaser 3

Excerpt:

“You ready?” I gripped my drumsticks tightly in my right hand as the screaming from the crowd pierced my ears, causing an onslaught of adrenaline to pulse beneath my skin.

Drew, one of the leading frontmen for our band, Adrenaline, rolled his eyes and shot me a middle finger. Then he straight-up tugged his leather pants down below his hips to show off his legendary V.

We get it, bro, you’ve got an eight-pack where there’s usually only six.

With a flourish, I pulled off my simple white tee and shrugged. “What? Two can play that game.”

“Seriously, guys?” Will gave me a shove. “They already gave us shit last time about you two comparing dicks. It’s the Grammys, not the Super Bowl. We have to be clothed.”

I eyed him up and down. “Question. Was it your plan to go out there looking like the dad of the group, or was it just a happy accident?” He was in skinny jeans and a simple vintage tee and wore his typical thick black glasses that somehow still got him action from his wife, actress Angelica Greene. It was confusing when Will got action and I didn’t.

Not that I wasn’t getting any.

I inwardly smirked. I was dating one of our background dancers, while at the same time hooking up with one of Zane’s—both of which were performing with us tonight. Hey, it wasn’t like I planned for them to ever meet! And before you get your panties in a twist and start calling me a whore while chanting things like “I pray your dick falls off,” let me explain.

I have a solid reason for dating both women.

You ready for it?

The truth bomb of the century?

I don’t actually have a heart. You see, a long time ago in a land where my innocence thrived—you know, before the mistakes with the drugs, alcohol, and the time I carried a live chicken on stage and kissed it—I was in love.

Real love.

Not the kind where you say it just because you want to have sex with someone so badly, you’re willing to sell your soul to the devil. Twice.

Real, honest to God love.

Her name? Abigail.

Her current status? Breaker of souls and spawn of Satan.

Michel’s Review

Abandon by Rachel Van Dyken is a fun, angsty, and heartwarming second chance romance .

Ty Cuban, bad boy rocker, has been spiraling downward ever since he had his heart broken years ago by Von Abigail. After a disaster at the grammy’s, his bandmates force him to take a rated G break at a Rock Camp for kids in Seaside, Oregon. He’s looking forward to a little down time and a break from his own antics. It’s a chance to get back to the basics of music and a re-discover his passion. He thought he would find his passion through his music and his peace through sharing his skills with the kids but fate had another scenario in mind for him. Von Abigail is working at the camp and turning his world upside down once again. She broke him once and he will never allow her that much power in his life. Who is he fooling, his heart has other ideas.

When Abigail finds herself without a place to stay she has to turn to Ty. She knows he hates her but she also knows he’s a stand up guy with a good heart. Surely they can call a truce for two months.

Abigail and Ty are residing under the same roof and so far Seaside, Oregon hasn’t went up in flames. Maybe they can get through the animosity and find the love they both were determined to extinguish years ago. They both had their issues and have learned from the hard knocks in life. They have both grown up and are adults. They just have to let go of it all, abandon the past.

The Seaside gang is there to play their parts in being cupid. The dishwashers won’t get fixed, marshmallows are still a food group, the birds are still just as frightening, and the gang is still meddling,  Their group text are going strong and their seaside interventions are working. They still have other tricks up their sleeves for their stubborn friends. They want Ty and Abigail to have the same kind of happiness they have found in their lives. They just have to convince them to Abandon their past and open their hearts for a new beginning. Ty and Abigail deserve a happily ever after.

Once again Rachel Van Dyken delivered another heartwarming addition to the Seaside Pictures Series. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Abandon.
