Blog Blitz: Good Guy by Kate Meader

Blog Blitz: Good Guy by Kate Meader

 

In this standalone romance set in the Chicago Rebels world, a new generation of players take to the ice and learn that all’s fair in love and hockey.

Action, heat, rough hockey players with secrets, passion, and the ability to curl your toes ;).  If you loved Hot in Chicago then dive into this new series and discover great characters, familiar faces, and a writer who delivers each and every time.

Levi Hunt knows how to navigate through red tape and take orders, he also knows when to take action and ask for forgiveness if needed.

Jordan Cooke is journalist looking for a break, and when an opportunity arises to get close to the one man she fears could unravel her world, she takes it.

Loss is a challenging thing, and the one thing that connects Levi and Jordan will ultimately bring them closer than they ever imagined.

This scorchin read may lead to unexpected need to turn on the A/C. I received an ARC from the publisher for a fair and honest review.

EXCERPT:

“Was this night worth your time? Don’t you have a boyfriend who’d like to see you once in a while? Or a life that doesn’t revolve around work?” They stepped into the elevator and he slapped at the lobby level button. Stab. Slap. He was angry and he didn’t know why. He hated not knowing something.

“This is my life, Hunt.” She giggled, the sound going straight to his dick where it proceeded to tease, caress, and kiss the traitor wide awake. “God, playing video games with you guys is gold. And then when your pal showed up proving you’re not such a cold-hearted, friendless Terminator type after all and that you might have a personality underneath that hard-ass demeanor? Icing on the cupcake.”

He opened the door to his building, ushered her out, and tried not to enjoy her bobbing pony-tail.

“So is it true?” she threw out over her shoulder.

“Is what true?”

“The Disney ice cream cake thing?”

“Where are you parked?”

“Around the corner. You don’t have to—”

But he was already eating the ground with every stride like it had offended his honor.

“Levi, what is your problem?”

“Nothing. Just making sure you get in your car and leave.” He was pissed and horny and only now realizing that he had no idea what Jordan’s car looked like.

“Here I am.” She stood by a Honda Civic, two cars back.

Retracing his steps, he tried to get his emotions under control which should not have been a problem. Emotion-wrangling was his bag. Controlling the narrative was his forte. At least, he’d thought so until he met Jordan again.

“I don’t have a boyfriend.” She pushed her key into the lock.

“Say again?”

“You seem to be under the impression that I had someone I could be spending time with tonight instead of enjoying Erik’s weird winking and odes to herring, or Theo’s conspiracy theories as to why Chicagoland has so many mattress stores, or your curmudgeonly ways with hints of Tin Man.” She hummed If I only Had a Heart from The Wizard of Oz.

He passed over the Tin Man reference, probably because he was inexplicably relieved at the implication of her other statement. “Don’t have an opinion on your dating practices. Just something Kershaw mentioned.”

“And you believed him?”

“I didn’t not believe him. Strange thing to make up.” Especially with the graphic detail of naked photos. If she wasn’t seeing someone, then what was all that about?

She opened the door a couple of inches but still stood there. Pertly perking. “You know, the sooner you cooperate the sooner I’ll be out of your hair.”

“I’m doing everything management has ordered.”

“Under sufferance.”

“What you see is all you’re getting.” He was done here. Done with her teasing scent and dick-springing laugh. Done with trying to negotiate a truce between his hands and his c&*k. Just. Done. “Safe home now.” He turned to walk back, but didn’t get far.

“Coward.”

He pivoted. “What?”

“You’ve never liked me for some stupid, God-knows-what reason and now you can’t be man enough to sit still for a few questions.”

He ignored the last part which was half—okay, all—true, and focused on the first part. “I’ve liked you fine.”

She took a step toward him, then another until she was right in his space. She looked up at him, her expression filled with fury and spirit. Typical, maddening, heart-stoppingly gorgeous Jordan. “Admit it. You can’t stand me. When I kissed you five years ago—”

“We’re not talking about that.”

When I kissed you five years ago,” she insisted, her voice rising with each word, “it was as if I ripped out a piece of your mind! You didn’t like me. You certainly didn’t think I was right for Josh and then when we had that moment, when we were at our lowest, we were drawn to each other. You hate that of all people, it was me who made you go to this fragile, needful place. It happened and you need to get over it so we can do this interview and you never have to see me again!”

The Saint by Allison Butler

The Saint by Allison Butler

The Saint by Allison Butler is a story of love, trust, and obligation that fuels a romance built upon friendship, faith, and love. Sometimes love can be blind and in this story, it’s what drives the hero and heroine to depend on each other.

A rescue mission, a secret, and a promise made to a dying man. 

Allison has delivered a sensory experience from a first kiss to a happy-ever-after.

This sinfully sweet read is hotter than sweet with bedroom romance that tingles in all the right places, and a dash of spice to satisfy that slightly spicy craving. I can’t wait to read the next book adventure and take a journey into her world.

I am excited  to share all the things I’ve gathered this week, the connections I’ve made and the new friends I look forward to working with.

Tonight I wrap up my week with a fun night out and then pack up all my treasures into two bags.

Tomorrow morning I head home and will share all-the-things once I’ve had a few hours of sleep.

Thank you New York.
