Insatiable by Michelle Hazen – Blog Tour Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

Insatiable by Michelle Hazen is the third book in the Sex, Love, and Rock & Roll series.  A backstage pass into the world of the Red Letters, a band with musicians who must overcome obstacles to have it all. Living a life in the public eye is never easy, and it’s even more challenging when you’re trying to overcome an addiction. This is one crazy, wild ride and it’s worth every penny!

Jackson Sterling has a dark past and a powerful addiction to overcome. With the support of his band he’s managed to handle most of the temptations until Ava walked into his life. Will he finally find someone to be himself with and ease his pain? Can he find a way to overcome his new vice? Jax will surprise you and leave you wanting more, so much more.

Both Ava and Jax have a complicated past that could destroy their careers. One night will change everything and force them to finally face the very thing that could change their lives forever. A hot connection doesn’t make for a lasting relationship unless acceptance and forgiveness can be reached. Who will accept and who will forgive?

Trust, addiction, power, control, and the adrenaline rush are just a few things that bring this book on a wild ride through the life of a singer. Are you ready to dive into another wild ride with the Red Letters for their next tour?

Michelle Hazen delivers and emotionally satisfying story of a man who has so much to offer, so much to give, and so much to live for. I am thrilled his story is finally being told. This story is Scorchin hot. Caution, may lead to unexpected need to turn on the A/C.

While this book does contain spoilers to earlier books in the series it can be read as a standalone. If you’re the type of reader who enjoys reading a series from start to finish then I highly recommend reading the first two books to fully enjoy the band and the journey they’re on. Please note that the first book I read was Playing the Pauses and I didn’t feel confused. Instead I found myself needing to add Fill me to my must read list to read. 

I received an ARC for a fair and honest review.  Don’t miss your chance to read it today. Get your copy here.

INSATIABLE Excerpt
Copyright © 2018 Michelle Hazen

“Jax, wait!” She grabs my arm.
“Still not ready to sleep?”
Please God, let her ask me to hold her. That happens in Jera’s romance novels all the time. And okay, the heroes never pop inappropriate wood, but that’s just because they’re a bunch of P~$$ies.
Ava nods, and I can’t quite read the look in her eye. Her hand feels soft on my arm and when it drops away, my skin tingles. “If you want to trade in truth or dare for a bedtime story next time, I rock at Dr. Seuss. Jera’s daughter can’t get enough of rhyming.” I half-smile. “Songwriter’s kid, you know.”
“Sorry. You should go catch a nap before the plane lands. I need a new damn boyfriend is all.” Ava sighs. “Hate sleeping alone.”
My heart jolts and I briefly debate the wisdom of jumping up and down, waving my arm in the air. Decide against it on the basis of possible un-coolness points. “You could try your bodyguard. Judging by the look he gave me when I was on my way in here, he’s dying to play Big Spoon.”
Ava laughs. “Yeah, not even a little bit. Plus, his wife is in my knitting group back home.”
“AVA knitting? From the girl who started the skull-with-pink-bow trend, that’s some serious blackmail, so now we’re even.” She still looks glum, so I skim my knuckles down her arm. “Come on, you’re not really alone. You’re on a tiny plane with the world’s most prescient flight attendant, a vampire bat, and a makeup artist whom I suspect of reading the dictionary. For pleasure.”
She laughs, squirming around until she’s straight on the bed again and squinting up at me as a tiny curl falls into her eyes. “You’re crazy weird, you realize that, right?”
“They’re your hand-picked staff, not mine.” I head for the door and pause with my hand on the knob. “I’ll totally stay and cuddle with you, you know. As long as you have sex with me three, maybe four times first.”
“Four?” She pushes her hair out of her face. “Oh, is that all?”
I wink. “‘If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.’”
“Oh my God, did you just sex-quote Dr. Seuss at me?” She explodes into my favorite laugh, the gasping snorty one.
I close the door, grinning. Which sucks, because I look like a fool when I realize her bodyguard is still awake, swiveled so he can watch me come out of her airplane’s bedroom.
And he still hasn’t blinked.

Tie Me Down by Michelle Hazen – Blog Tour Review, Excerpt and Giveaway

 

 

Readers if you haven’t read Playing the Pauses (read my review and thoughts here ) I highly recommend reading that first. Tie Me Down by Michelle Hazen is what happens after the last page in that book.

It’s time to see how Danny and Kate are now, will they really have their happy-ever-after? It’s an adventure that shows what we really need isn’t always what we get. Further more, it isn’t always how we planned or what those in our life expect. However, if we don’t ask, then how can we get it? We deserve everything we want and shouldn’t stop until we have it.

Danny O’Neil and Kate have it all, dream jobs, hot chemistry, and they both live hard and play harder. Will their love survive the new challenges with Kate’s job? Will Danny find a way to communicate his feelings when things take an unexpected turn?

Living the life of a rock star has its challenges and managing one requires control, order, and the ability to put others before oneself. Sometimes. Will Kate finally risk it all to save the one thing she can’t live without? Is Danny really ok with all of Kate’s  traveling despite his frequent gifts?

Don’t miss the conclusion – it’s full of heart squeezing moments, life changing decisions and the creative expression we discovered when we saw Danny and Kate last. I have a new appreciation for art and am feeling inspired.

I received this ARC from Barclay for a fair and honest review. I give this book three flames of heat. Spicy  – Best enjoyed with your favorite iced-beverage, a cozy chair, and maybe a fan.

 

 From the Author **This is a sequel to Playing the Pauses, not a standalone. However, you don’t have to read the rest of the series to understand these two.**

TIE ME DOWN Excerpt

Copyright © 2018 Michelle Hazen

 In my purse, a text message waits on my phone, but I don’t check it.

My assistant needs more supervision than I can afford to give him, the production manager’s blood pressure could really use me running interference between him and the neurotic pyrotechnics specialist, and I should ride the bus tonight to try to repair my working relationship with the backup dancers. I have a hundred places to be and the only one I want to inhabit is Danny’s apartment, in his beautiful silence that always stretches to make me a comfortable part of it.

It’s enough to make me wish Danny said I love you. He thinks it’s absurd to repeat a sentiment I already know is true, but in moments like these where I’m falling a little short in every area of my life, I could really use the simple comfort of those three words. I pull out my phone to check his text, even though I know it won’t say what I need it to.

Sure enough, the screen doesn’t fill with words. Instead, it’s a picture.

I squint in the dim backstage lights, turning up the brightness until I can make out a sketch in the spare, soft lines of his characteristic charcoal.

It’s of me, asleep with my hair pooled beneath my relaxed cheek. The lines of my face are graceful, more beautiful than they ever look in the mirror. The care with which he constructed my image just from memory makes me catch my breath, tears burning at the corners of my eyes.

He misses me. And this is the only way he can say it.

Playing the Pauses by Michelle Hazen

 

Playing the Pauses is your VIP ticket for The Red Letters as they embark on a rock & roll tour of self discovery and adventure. Are you ready for an all-access, exclusive VIP behind the scenes ticket?

As a last minute replacement, new Tour Manager Kate Madsen discovers that the only thing that might jeopardize her current working situation will be living with her 24/7. Armed with funny one-liners, a creative imagination and a little self control, she Kate lays it all on the line. If the band wants to salvage their financial future, they’re going to need to trust her to clean up what her predecessor has left for her,  a teeny tiny mess. Will they take her advice? Will she earn their trust?

Congrats to Michelle as the chemistry between the characters is fluid. Danny O’Neil is the perfect rockstar hero, covered in sexy tattoos, a musical genius with his guitar, he is bold and up until now, stayed mysterious.

Kate’s job is to take care of the band, but when her cravings tempt her into one night of sin, will she give in or play it safe? who will tempt who? Oh…let the games begin.This book adventure is every rock groupies fantasy, a glimpse into the life of a musician on the road. Are you ready?

One little secret will have the power to end the tour or destroy a few careers, will it stay under wraps? Will Danny jeopardize his future or push the one person he loves away? Will they resist the pull or will they find a way to explore the explosive charge between them.

Michelle writes witty dialogue with layers of surprises like a dark chocolate cake. It’s smooth, rich, and every bite entices you for more. I will never look at a hotel balcony the same way again and neither will you. Note this story contains elements of BDSM and is for mature readers 18+, and is sure to lead to a one-click for the first installment in this series.

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