PART-TIME LOVER Excerpt:

~Christian~

A year ago

I stroll up the hilly yard toward my house, passing my brother, Erik, who stands close to the porch. “Did you scare them all away? Admit it—they cringed in terror, scary movie—style.”

I slash an arm through the air. “Whole boatload of them. Tears, shrieks of horror. Wailing.”

He cringes dramatically.

“Toss me a towel, will you? Or do you want to continue to admire your more fit and handsome younger brother?”

Erik scoffs and throws the towel over the porch railing, away from me.

I shrug. “I’ll just go inside, and you can check out my arse.”

“You can count on me never ever checking out your arse.”

I grab the handle on the sliding-glass door and head inside to one of my homes. You can’t beat a home on the water. But then, a flat in Paris is hard for me to say no to as well. Good thing I get to have both.

I grab the pair of boxer briefs I left on the couch and tug them on as Erik follows me inside.

“Seriously. How did it go?”

“Exceptionally well. I landed a date tonight.”

“Bastard. You’re not supposed to get dates when you flash the tourists, and especially not when your beloved brother is only in town with you for a few days.” Most of the time Erik’s in London, where we were raised.

“Jealous much?” I ask, heading for the fridge and pouring a glass of cold water.

Erik flexes a bicep, then another, posing like he’s Mr. Olympia. “I’ve scored plenty of dates with this fabulous physique. Just none lately.”

“That would be because you’re married, you tosser.”

He flashes a dimpled grin. He’s so ridiculously in love with his wife, it’s nearly disgusting. He could be the poster child for man-who-falls-arse-over-elbow-for-a-woman. That’s something I can’t say for all the men in my family.

“I’m like Grandfather, happy as a clam.”

I furrow my brow. “How does anyone know clams are happy? Is there a study on clam happiness? We all assume they’re rays of sunshine, but how do we know?”

He scratches his chin. “Good question.”

“I bet they aren’t happy at all. I bet they feel nothing. Is that what happiness should feel like? Nothing?”

He sighs. “Aren’t you philosophical today?”

“Maybe. It happens every now and then.” I take a drink of the water. “But what can you do? Sometimes deep thoughts stray into my brain, and I can’t help it.”

“Best to get them out of your head if you have a date tonight.”

“Perhaps she likes thinkers,” I suggest.

“So who is she? Did you exchange numbers on the dock? Or did you, I don’t know, play charades with your appendages swinging in the breeze?”

“Yes. I can do Morse code with my d$*k.”

“Such a useful skill,” he deadpans.

“We did it the old-fashioned way. Picked a spot to meet and a time.”

He raises his chin. “And why her? Of all the ladies on all the tours you’ve ever flashed, you haven’t asked one out before. Not that you’ve told me about anyway.”

I let my brain rewind to the petite brunette with the big sunglasses who ogled me unabashedly from the side of the boat. She was pretty, that much I could tell even from fifty feet away.

But pretty alone isn’t enough. Pretty is a dime a dozen. I’ve dated women who aren’t pretty, but are witty, clever, and keep me on my toes. I like those traits just as much. Perhaps more. But I’m not opposed to pretty either.

Obviously.

“She was bold. She called out bravo. She said it louder than anyone ever has.”

“So she knows how to read your Morse code.”

“She’s welcome to read Morse code on me anytime. Come to think of it, she can even treat me like I’m fruit at the market.”

Erik laughs. “In some countries, they don’t let you touch fruit at the market.”

I gesture to my body, from my chest down to my legs. “In the fine country of Christian Land, it’s highly encouraged for the bold brunettes to touch the fruit.”

The Whole Latte

Come as you Are by Lauren Blakely is the perfect book if you love a billionaire romance that’s full of witty dialogue, with strong and sassy characters, and a story that creatively infuses a few genres, then this book is for you! 

Flynn  Parker is tired of women dropping themselves at his feet. Literally. They will stop at nothing to win the billionaire. But hey, there is more to this sexy, nerdy man than just his bank account. He actually wants someone to appreciate him for who he is, not what he has. When he encounters a woman at a masquerade ball she will leave him longing for more. Is it possible she doesn’t know who he is? Could he have found the one?

Sabrina Granger is a woman who will protect those she loves at all cost. When her mother walks out on her, she will learn that the only person she can count on is her brother. When a trip down the isle is suddenly called off, Sabrina will  have to find the courage to move on while doubting what went wrong. Will she learn to open up and trust again? When she meets a masked man, he will unlock her hidden desires and push her to be courageous. Will she welcome the reveal of his true identity? Will it destroy her future?

When a buissness opportunity threatens to expose their connection, Sabrina and Flynn will need to decide what matters more, business or pleasure. Can they come to a mutual decision? If they do, they just might discover that sometimes wishes do come true and fairy tales aren’t just bedtime stories.

Don’t miss this sexy romantic comedy that is sexy, spicy, and makes a perfect bookcation!

From #1 NYT bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a sexy new standalone romance!

~FLYNN~

The door crawls shut.

Inch by inch.

A slow-mo door.

I have no patience for its theatrics. I kick it shut, eager for the next part of the evening to begin.

Her laughter sounds across the library and echoes off its dark wood shelves bursting with books. A leather couch takes center stage, flanked by a mahogany table.

“Are you in a rush to read something?” she asks coyly.

Her voice turns me on. It’s like bourbon and honey. A little throaty and husky, but with sweet undertones. Funny, how when you can’t see someone’s face—at least not all of it—your other senses heighten. Your ears work harder, homing in on the voice, or you zoom in on the eyes. Hers are warm hazel with flecks of bronze and green.

“Why, yes, I was looking for a particular book.” I stroll to the bookshelf along one wall, running my fingers across the spines, from old hardcovers like Tess of the d’Urbervilles to modern thrillers from the likes of Clive Cussler to non-fiction reads on the habits of highly effective people. “I thought if you wanted to go to the library you’d want to read. Naturally.”

“Of course. Read me a story. A bedtime story.” She leans against the wall next to a writing desk with a green lamp on it, the kind that has one of those chains you pull down to turn it on. She goes with the moment, and this night seems like role-play with her. I half want to understand who she is. But in a way, I’d rather experience everything she seems to want to give. Her body. Her mouth. Her mind. Whoever she is here in the library is as real as whoever she is behind the mask. My mission is to make sure she gets everything she wants.

I grab the nearest book and crack it open. It’s a James Patterson. “Once upon a time, there was a woman at a party who wanted to be kissed,” I say, walking to her, the pages open.

The angel raises her hands to her hair and sweeps off the headband that holds her halo. She tosses it to the desk. “That sounds like a very scintillating tale.”

The Whole Latte:

Paris is the city of love with magic cooked into the food, the art one-of-a-kind, and the buildings unique and breathtaking. Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely is a whirlwind adventure for Joy and Griffin in Paris with a delicious meet-cute that is both memorable and creative. So, order a croissant, a chocolat chaud and pull up a chair at the outdoor cafe to start your bookcation. .

Joy has left everything behind for an opportunity to live and work with the best in her field in Paris. Could you do that? In order to make her work transition easier, her employer hires a translator to help her ease into her new job. It’s amazing at how a slight shift in pronunciation can change the meaning of a word. Lauren has written realistic scenes that are witty, refreshing and full of zing. I’ve walked along the same sidewalks that Joy has, and I can see it in my mind with such accuracy that readers are going to enjoy the sensory experience of this book.

Griffin is ready to live life and do all the things he always dreamed of. A tragic event pushes him to live outside his comfort zone with a list that isn’t for the faint of heart. What will happen when his new client is beautiful, charming, and the one thing that isn’t on his list? Can he keep his professional and personal life separate or will he risk destroying the reason he moved to Paris? Are you ready to be charmed? Are you ready to be romanced? Griffin is here to show you Paris through his eyes and it’s anything but ordinary and predictable.

While it’s been years since I’ve walked along the landscape of Paris, the attention that Lauren gives to the tiny details bring me back to those days where I strolled the cobblestone streets with the man I love, holding hands breathing it all in. As Joy visits a cafe, I take a seat and sip my coffee. I’m transported to the my favorite cafe eating all the things. There are little nuggets in this book that made the journey even more enjoyable. I highly recommend a stop at Berthillion and stroll Paris for whatever you’re looking for, I’m sure you will find it ;).

I’ve read many of Lauren’s backlist and this one is my favorite. Perhaps because it’s in a city that I love, or with characters that we can all connect with, or the total sensory experience it brings. Whatever your reasons are for reading you will find a satisfying read. I received this ARC from Inkslinger PR and the author for a fair and honest review.

Scorchin – Caution, may lead to unexpected need to turn on the A/C.

 

 

Check it out with this excerpt:

~JOY~

Forget oysters. Screw candlelight and champagne. A sexy accent is the truest aphrodisiac. I’m talking a weak-in-the-knees, flutters-all-over, fast-track to euphoria.

I’ve tried to analyze precisely why the sound of a man’s words can elicit this reaction in, frankly, millions of women. But when I break down an accent and study it like a chemical reaction, it’s nearly impossible to draw a logical conclusion. The ingredients in and of themselves don’t seem swoontastic enough.

And yet, accents have been known to induce major swooning.

That’s why, in my professional opinion, the sounds aren’t the rocket fuel for the tingles. Instead, it’s the associations evoked. Italian is food, wine, and days drenched in the pleasures of the senses. Australian is the laid-back twang of a surfer. A Southern drawl says a man will take his sweet time. Oh, yes, darlin’, will he ever.

But British? Dear God. A delicious British accent to my oh-so-American ears triggers wave after wave of goose bumps across my skin. My knees wobble. My stomach swoops. My skin heats. All the turned-on centers in my body are cranked to high.

A British accent is James Bond in a bottle. It’s sex, it’s style, it’s sophistication, and it’s the man who’ll find his way out of any jam, save the damsel, and do it all with silver cuff links on.

Wait. Make that platinum.

Charmed, indeed.

That’s why I say it’s a damn good thing I’m moving to a country that won’t be chock full of my personal vocal kryptonite, since I don’t have the time or inclination for distractions in my life right now. Look, I don’t have a single problem with the French accent whatsoever. A hot French man canvoulez-vouscoucher avecmoi, if you know what I mean.

But it’s a British accent that turns me to Silly Putty, so in Paris I’ll be mighty fine.

Then, I meet him.
