EXCERPT:

High school parking lots are one of the most dangerous places on earth. I don’t have statistics to back that up…but I know it’s true.

I pull into the school parking lot Monday morning in my Dad’s giant, newly repaired mint-green Buick, with Back in Black by AC/DC blasting from the speakers. I feel tough, powerful—like I’m driving a tank.

I’m a badass teacher—I’ll run you down even if you’re a student—I’ve got twenty-nine more in class just like you.

The outfit helps too—leather boots, blue jeans, a starched white blouse and a black leather jacket. It’s my armor. The morning air is cool and crisp today, but I barely feel it. I’m locked and loaded and ready to roll.

As I march towards the main entrance, I spot Garrett and Dean and Alison Bellinger outside the doors. They pause when they see me, waiting.

“Damn,” Dean chuckles. “Callie’s got her shit-kickers on. Did you dig them out of a mosh pit from 1993?”

Garrett crosses his arms. “Somebody’s channeling Michelle Pfiefer in Dangerous Minds.”

He looks fantastic. His hair is tousled from the breeze and kisses his brow, and he’s wearing a dark blue sweater that’s snug around his biceps and soft, worn, light blue jeans. I remember his arms around me yesterday on my parent’s porch. The wonder and exhilaration of the moment.

Of him.

The intensity in his eyes, the desire and possessiveness in the grasp of his hands. The scorching feel of his mouth, his wet talented tongue that made my stomach swirl and my head spin.

So much for not complicating things.

But I’m not going to play head games with myself or Garrett—we’re too old for that s%t.

I have feelings for him—I always have—our break-up had nothing to do with either of us not wanting each other desperately. But these aren’t just leftover echoes of a sweet, first love—this is something new. A throbbing, breathless attraction to the amazing man he’s become. I want to be near him. I want to know him, inside and out, all over again.

And he feels the same way. Garrett wants this version of me as much as he always did—maybe even more. I heard it in his whispered words and felt it in his kiss.

I don’t know if we have a future, if it can go anywhere. We have separate lives on opposite ends of the country. But I’m not going to worry about that—for now, I’m going to take each day as it comes and enjoy every moment we can.

Except for now. Now is not the time for enjoying or worrying or relationship building…now is the time for focusing. Now is the time to be ice and steel—don’t smile, don’t waver.

“Little f#@knutters don’t know who the hell they’re dealing with,” I growl.

Allison pumps her fist. “That’s the spirit.”

Garrett opens the door for me. “Go get ‘em, Gangster’s Paradise.”

Bolt 4 & 5 by Angel Payne Blog Tour

Bolt 4 & 5 by Angel Payne Blog Tour

 

Bolt (4 & 5) by USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne are here. Each part of the series has approximately 30,000 words and priced around $2.99 per installment.
 



Bolt by Angel Payne is a series in nine installments. As this series is built upon the previous book I recommend reading this series in order. A little tidbit, if you’ve read Misadventures of a Superhero then this character will seem very familiar.
In the Misadventures series his story was short, hot, and full of electrifying moments. Now, Angel Payne delivers Bolt and delves deeper taking us into what happened to Reece, what triggered his dive into an almost unthinkable place, and his journey to turn his life into something positive.

Bolt is a phenomenon, a superhero, a man of intense powers in a world where a living superhero is exciting, erotic, and almost unthinkable. Will he win the woman he desires most despite his abilities?

Fueled by revenge, driven by love, Reece Richards is a powerful businessman who will meet one woman who can defy his odds and prove he isn’t broken. There is only one thing standing in his way, a powerful secret that could destroy everything. Will Emmalina stay with Reece or leave him? If they can uncover who is responsible for Bolt’s existence, they will finally be able to be together. Will they find out who made Reece the man he is? I love reading a story with a suspense element, tons of secrets, and lots of hot chemistry.

The Distiller’s Darling by Rebecca Norinne and Jamaila Brinkley – Blog Tour Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

The Distiller’s Darling by Rebecca Norinne and Jamaila Brinkley – Blog Tour Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

The Distiller’s Darling by Rebecca Norinne and Jamaila Brinkley is refreshing and delicious. There is nothing sweeter than a collaboration that reads with such fluidity and grace as this does. I tried to figure out which author wrote specific chapters and I was unable to decipher. Ladies, well done.

For those familiar with the River Hill series, this book focuses on Naomi Klein and her crew of friends. New to the series, no problem. I love that this book can stand on its own for those who have not read The Vintner’s Vixen as well as satisfy returning readers with a continuation of beloved characters that brought them back for another bookcation.

Naomi Klein is strong, witty, and knows what she wants. Unafraid to speak her mind despite the potential for alienating herself from her family and friends she’s tired of her meddling mother and town gossip. Naomi is oozing talent and will stop at nothing to achieve her dream, but does she really want a life of one-night stands and no commitments?  Is it possible that she can have an established career without giving up someone special? When she meets a sexy Irish whiskey connoisseur he will leave her panties twisted and her heart ripe for the taking. Will she change her mind regarding marriage and discover it’s possible to have it all?

Iain Brennan wants to to be defined by his work and not constricted to his families expectations or old world ways. Working with his twin sister on a secret project he travels across the pond to make his move. There is only one thing preventing him from achieving his goals, a sexy artist who will become the canvas in this fabulous love story. Will his family be receptive? Will he change his mind on relationships and family?

If you’re looking for something fun this weekend try an adventure with hot chemistry, a solid story built around families, friendships, and a town where everyone knows you. Now is the perfect time to visit River Hill, I hear there’s a great B & B with a few rooms available :)!

I received this ARC from Inkslinger PR and the authors for a fair and honest review. For a book that has love scenes behind the bedroom door this is still a scorching hot read!

EXCERPT:

“Thank you for doing this,” Iain said, the pad of his index finger tracing over the design Naomi had created for Whitman’s Revival. “To be honest, I wasn’t sure I’d hear from you again. You kind of ghosted me.”

He glanced up in time to catch her looking away guiltily. “Yeah, about that—”

“I’m not asking you to explain yourself. I get it. We had some fun, and now it’s time to move on.”

Naomi’s eyes came back around, the guilt replaced with what Iain thought looked a whole lot like contemplation. “Funny you should mention that.”

“Funny how?”

“I was thinking,” she said, her finger swirling a pattern on the table that separated them. “You’re leaving in two months, and it would be a shame if we didn’t spend that time … hanging out.” Her eyes bored into his, as if daring him to misunderstand.

His lips quirked up into a smirk. “Why, Miss Klein, are you asking me to fuck you senseless until I board a plane back to Ireland?”

She tossed him a wicked smile full of promise. “You have to admit; we’re pretty damn good at it.”

“The best,” he agreed.

He felt his chest sawing in and out as his breathing became deeper and more labored. Iain couldn’t remember the last time he’d felt such heady anticipation. Oh, wait, yes, he could. It was that night in San Francisco when he and Naomi had practically run from that dive bar to his hotel. He’d been so ready for her that he’d ripped her dress off before the door to his room had locked behind them.

“So, what do you say, Brennan? You want to spend the next sixty days seeing how many orgasms we can give each other?”

That was all the invitation Iain needed. Abruptly, he stood, his chair scraping over the black-and-white-checked linoleum and then crashing to the floor. He stalked around the fifties-style diner table and fisted his hands in Naomi’s hair. He bent at the waist and let his lips hover scant centimeters from her parted ones. He could feel the warmth of her breath mingling with his own. “What do you say we get started on that now?”

She licked her lips. “Yes, let’s.”

“What brings you here?”

Her mother examined her surroundings. “Do you have a place to sit down?”

Naomi sighed. “Come on in. The living room is this way.” The dining room had been converted to her office, but she’d furnished the cozy living room with a comfortable couch and a chair or two. She mostly used the space for watching ridiculous movies when she was feeling burnt out. Although she and Iain had done a few other things in there several days ago. Probably not something she should be thinking about as she watched her mother sit carefully down in the exact spot Iain had—never mind.

“So? You’re sitting. In my house. Which you’ve never visited before, let alone showed up unannounced to. Why are you here, Mom?”

“Oh, it isn’t just me, dear.” Her mother smiled at her beatifically. “Your father’s here, too. He’s just taking a little nap. You know how travel tires him.”

“You live less than two hours from here.”

“Yes, of course. It was certainly a drive. There were many interesting fields and farms.” Her mother’s tone conveyed her opinion about such things, and it wasn’t positive. “I left him at the cozy B&B we booked. So convenient that it had availability.”

Oh, no. “You’re staying? At a B&B?”

“Oh, yes. Even more charming than your little place here. I understand they’ve undergone some renovations recently.”

“Mom, are you staying at the Oakwell Inn?”

“Well of course, darling.”

“But that’s Noah’s—”

“Yes, I promised his mother a full report, of course.” Her own mother sniffed. “Angelica is a charming girl, although she seems quite busy.”

That explained why nobody had thought to warn Naomi about this ambush. Angelica was due to leave to film another segment of her popular show in a day or two. Possibly even tomorrow—Naomi wasn’t sure of the exact schedule. But Noah and Angelica would have been far too busy cooing over each other to even register this particular emergency. They probably thought Naomi had invited her parents to come.

“Why are you and Dad here? You never leave the city.”

“Darling, you didn’t answer your phone. I assumed you were dead. We came to identify your body.”

“You booked a B&B to identify my corpse?”

“Well, we certainly weren’t going to stay at a Holiday Inn.”

Naomi closed her eyes and sought patience. “You knew I wasn’t dead. What’s going on?”

Her mother leaned toward her. “It’s an intervention, Naomi.”

Naomi felt her jaw drop. “A what?”

“An intervention. Jacob and Tanya are on their way, too. We felt the whole family should be here.”
