Unconditional by Lexi Blake Release Day Blitz + Review + **Giveaway**

photoe90f2-synopsisA curious woman

Ashley Paxon understands responsibility. After her fiancé left her alone and pregnant, she forged a new life for herself and her daughter. Moving to Dallas, she went back to school and found a job at a club called Sanctum. As one of the BDSM club’s waitresses, she watches the Doms and their submissives every night. She yearns to explore their lifestyle of discipline and power exchange, but she knows she wouldn’t belong.

A wounded man

Keith Langston believes in living in the moment. Haunted by the past, he moves from one casual relationship to the next and never looks back. But the moment he lays eyes on Ashley, something primal and possessive takes over. He can’t stop thinking about her and yet he knows he can’t offer her what she needs. Having her seems impossible until Sanctum’s owner, the mysterious Ian Taggart, makes him an offer he can’t refuse.

The perfect contract

Offered the chance to train Ashley and initiate her into the D/s lifestyle, Keith is delighted to accept. Under the guidelines of a carefully crafted contract, they lose themselves in the pleasures and intimacies of being Master and submissive. But when Ashley and her daughter are threatened, Keith realizes she needs much more than a part-time Dom. To protect her, he will have to break through the barriers of their contract and finally face the demons haunting his heart.

A Masters and Mercenaries Novella

6e57f-reviewbigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472Unconditional is a heart-wrenching tale about love, loss, and the opportunity to love again.  Lexi takes you on a provocative and emotional journey that will have you fanning yourself with the tissues one minute and then have you wiping your tears away.  This book reminds us that if you open your heart, no matter how broken, that you can be loved and can give love again.

Keith is sexy bad ass.  He has been around the block a few times and knows just what Ashley needs.  The question becomes is he up to the task, or is he going to hold himself back.  When Keith finds out that Ashley has never experienced pleasure during sex it his is undoing.

Ashley sees herself as broken.  She is a single mother, has the stretch marks to prove it, and has never experienced an orgasm.  She believes that her girlie parts are well…just broken.

Ian comes up with a plan that he thinks will help Ashley build up her self-esteem and give him a chance to see if Keith is really able to be the Dom that he professes to be.

The chemistry between Ashley and Keith is scorching hot.  They met briefly once before at her sister Jill’s wedding to Ryan, the clubs manager.  Keith was attracted to Ashley then but she was too innocent for him.  There was no way that she would accept his lifestyle.  So when Ian brings him a signed contract from her Keith almost comes in his leathers.  Ashley is a still a BDSM virgin and Keith has to tread lightly or Ashley could get spooked and walk away.

This story made me laugh and cry, and touched my heart.  Seeing Keith with Ashley’s little girl was my undoing. I could read it over and over again. I loved Ashley’s sassy mouth and her need for independence.  I could relate to her since I am a single mother of two myself.  I really got the giggles when Keith got jealous over her sassy banter with the bartender.  This novella lives up to the Master’s and Mercenaries standard of hotness.  It is 5 scorching stars.  The scenes performed by Keith and Ashley will have you breaking out BOB and looking for the spare batteries…or…you could always just break out BOB and his other brother BOB and be good to go.

If you like watching a hot scorching Dom being brought to his knees by a lovely sassy sub then you will love Unconditional.

Hard Glamour by Maggie Marr Blog Tour, Review, and **Giveaway**

Hard-Glamour-Tour-BannerHard Glamour Covere90f2-synopsis

A promise to keep….

Honoring her mother’s last wish, Lane Channing vows to follow her dreams. She takes the ‘big risk’ and leaves her small Kansas town behind and heads to LA, the city of dreams. She’s got a stellar job lined up, an old jeep, and 20 bucks to last her to her first paycheck. Her hopes shatter when she arrives to find her job’s been given to someone else.  Now she’s broke and will soon be living on the streets if she doesn’t do something fast. Welcome to cutthroat – Lane is most certainly not in Kansas anymore.

On the cusp of success…

Dillon MacAvoy has one goal–to become a star–whatever it takes. Even if it means honing his bad-boy can’t-be-tamed-and-forever-single image. Besides the image isn’t far from the truth. Dillon cares only about his younger brother and his career. He’s on the brink of superstardom if he can just decide on the next right script. But for that, he needs a script reader he can trust.

In a strange twist of fate…

Lane Channing is Dillon’s last chance. If Lane lasts the summer without becoming MacAvoy’s latest conquest, she’s guaranteed a job in entertainment. No problem, as long as she can ignore the heat that pulses through her every time Dillon is in the room. After all, love and commitment with a sweet, hometown girl would only ruin the Dillon MacAvoy brand.

6e57f-reviewbigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472Hard Glamour will take you on a emotional journey of heart.  What the heart wants…well…is what the heart wants.  I love reading bad boy/good girl romance.  Maggie Marr puts together an amazing story about finding true love at the worst possible time.  Dillon is a hot, sexy, and tattooed bad boy.  I am a sucker for a smokin hot bad boy with tattoos.  She had me hooked right then and there.  Lane is an innocent from Kansas.  Poor girl has to deal with the “Dorothy” comments quite a bit and I really feel her pain.

I love the tug of war relationship that Dillon and Lane have.  He is such a jerk at first and she dishes it right back.  He shows her kindness and she is sweet but then he is a jerk again.  Dillon knows that Lane is untouchable.  She is not the love ’em and leave ’em kind that Dillon is used to and well he needs a friggen reader because he has ran off everyone before her.  He needs her help and so he will have to behave himself.

Lane knows that Dillon is a bad boy and that she was lucky to get this gig.  As long as she does not sleep with him her future is secure at the agency.  Since Lane has never been with a man that should be easy right?  WRONG!  She is attracted to Dillon as soon as she sees him let his guard down.  He is sweet to his rescue dogs and very loyal to his brother Choo.

I loved this story.  Dillon shows a side of himself to Lane that he has never shown anyone before.  Her kindness, beauty, and understanding gets a hold of Dillon’s heart and will not let go.  When Lane sees Dillon’s vulnerability she falls for him too.  The sex is scorching hot.  This review does come with a BOB warning.  Dillon is an amazing lover that will have you squirming in your seat and seeking some relief.  Hot Damn!  What that man can do with his fingers and his tongue should be outlawed.

If you are a junkie like me and can’t get enough of “the bad boy falls for the good girl” smokin hot romance you will love Hard Glamour.

Steal The Moon by Lexi Blake Release Day Launch + Review + ***Giveaway***

steal the moon

e90f2-synopsis

When an ancient artifact enslaves every werewolf on earth, humanity’s only hope is a thief…

Zoey Donovan should be happy. Her love life couldn’t be better, her demonic nemesis is on the run, business is booming, and no one has tried to kill her in seven whole months. But without her best friend to share it with, it all seems a little hollow. Neil, her fabulous furry wingman, is missing and two grumpy werewolf bodyguards have taken his place.

Undaunted by her humorless babysitters, she intends to track Neil down even if it means risking her new found romantic bliss. But someone else has plans for Zoey, and they don’t intend to play nice. Lucas Halfer is desperate for revenge, and he knows just how to get it.

An ancient Roman legend tells of an artifact that will grant its possessor the power to control all wolves. No one, including Daniel and Dev, believes the Strong Arm of Remus is real but Zoey thinks Halfer might have already located it. With every werewolf pack in North America gathering in Colorado, the demon could enslave an unstoppable army.

To save the day, and possibly the world, Zoey will have to find a way to steal the Strong Arm of Remus from one of the most powerful demons in existence. Then again, impossible is kind of her specialty.

bigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472

Hot Damn!  She does it again!  Holy Hell!  No one writes menage like Lexi Blake!

Steal The Moon is intelligent and sexy, and will keep you on the edge of your seat.

At this point in this series Daniel finally got his head out of his ass and jumped on board the menage train.  He is so powerful now that he feeds from both Dev and Zoey and spends as much time as he possibly can inside of Zoey screwing her brains out.  Which he does every day, several times a day, because hey, a man’s gotta eat.  Just so you know Dev gets his too…  Dev ties Zoey up and they both lavish her body with such enthusiasm that your panties will be drenched.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.  Just spend the damn money, buy the Duracell Quantum batteries for B.O.B., because you are going to need them.  Put the kids to bed early and then get your Blake on.

Dev takes on a more alpha male role in this book and I freaking love it.  He and Daniel still bicker like siblings and crack me up though.  Dev is called upon as a Sex God, to use powers of fertility to help several wolf packs that are having troubles creating pups.  This act will build a huge alliance with the wolves that Daniel really needs if he is going to consider going up against the Vampire Council.  Dev’s powers have increased ten fold because Daniel feeds from him daily and they exchange energy.  Dev becomes a sexy, scorching hot, lustfully lushious, and powerful Fertility God.  My girl parts are doing the happy dance just thinking about Devinshea Conlan Quinn.  Where does Zoey fit into this plan?  Well you will just have to read about that, and let me tell you she is not happy about what Daniel and Dev want her to do.

Neil is back!  Yay!  I love Neil and am so glad he shows back up in Steal The Moon.  You know you have it bad when you are sitting at your desk at work and day dreaming about your book boyfriends.  I thought to myself, I wonder what Neil and Chad are up to today.  It’s sad I know.  I can’t wait to see Neil in all of his glory again in Steal the Sun.

Did I tell you that Dev’s twin brother Declan shows up?  He almost has Zoey fooled for a moment, but she knows the taste of Dev’s delicious lips, and Declan just aint got it.  Of course he is a total perv just like his brother but what would you expect?  What I did not expect was for Dev’s mom to be such a perv.  You only get a taste of Miria in this book and I can’t wait to see more of her in Steal The Sun.

Steal The Moon is a roller coaster ride filled with action and adventure, and then is topped off with some sinfully decadent whipped kink.  The story line will keep you turning the pages to see what is going to happen next.  One minute everything thing is great, and the next Lucas Halfer is in your face and all hell is breaking loose.

Lexi’s books always go beyond a five star rating because her plot development is outstanding.  There is so much more drama, adventure, twists and turns in her books than most books.  The kinky sex puts the icing on the cake…And let me tell you that Lexi’s cake is rich and lush and you are addicted after taking just one bite.

This is by far my favorite urban fantasy series.  Lexi Blake is amazing.  Her characters fly off the page and into your heart and soul.  I will be counting down the days until I can see Dev, Daniel, Zoey, and Neil again in Steal The Sun.

Loving Cara by Kristen Proby Release Day Blitz + Review + **Giveaway**

Loving Cara

e90f2-synopsis

In this new Love Under the Big Sky series from a USA TODAY bestselling author, Cara agrees to tutor her former classmate’s nephew—and learns some lessons in love!

Josh King is an expert at running his family’s multi-million dollar ranch in Montana. (And all that outside manual labor has done wonders for sculpting his six-foot-three body, too.) But as sure footed as he is when it comes to the ranch, Josh doesn’t know anything about how to deal with an adolescent boy—so when his twelve-year-old nephew, Seth, is dropped off on his doorstep, looking scared and acting surly as hell, Josh knows he needs help in straightening him out.

Cara Donovan loves her quiet life as a teacher in her sleepy hometown, so she jumps at the chance to make a little money over the summer as a tutor. But when she learns she’ll be teaching Josh King’s nephew, Cara’s sweet summer job gets a little bit hotter. Cara tries to focus all her attention on tutoring Seth, but Josh proves to be a delicious distraction, while Josh’s memories of the shy girl he once teased in high school are nothing like the beautiful woman he’s facing now. Can he persuade her that there’s more between them than a summer fling?

bigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472

Flirty, Fabulous, and Sinfully Sexy.  I am loving Kristen Proby for writing this smokin hot sizzlin romance.  Josh King is tall, dark, handsome, and sweet and will steal your heart while making your panties melt.  He is a rancher and very proud to be following in his fathers footsteps.  Kristen had me tearing up during the tree scene.  Caroline  (Cara) is the bomb.  She is sweet, sassy, and all wrapped up in a sexy and curvy package.

Josh and Cara are brought together when Seth (Josh’s nephew) is dumped at the ranch by his mother.  Josh’s brother Zach is serving in Afghanistan when Seth shows up.  Seth is angry at his mother and father and feels like he has been abandoned.  He is way behind in school and very defiant.  Cara comes to Josh’s ranch to tutor Seth so he can start the school year on target.  She is kind and compassionate and is able to reach Seth when no one else can.  Josh notices Cara right away and quickly becomes smitten with her.  What follows is a lustful affair that will have you breaking out B.O.B. for sure.  Stock up on batteries for this one ladies.  Josh is scorching hot and cant keep his hands off Cara.

The supporting cast makes this story even sweeter.  Zach is Josh’s twin and is a smoking hot.  He is military so he is very much and alpha male and loyal to the people he loves.  Jilly is Cara’s best friend who is a wild and free spirit and I can’t wait for Kristen to write Zach and Jilly’s story.  Then there is Ty, Jilly’s brother who is a rockstar bad boy lawyer who wears suits by day and shows of his tattooed sleeve by night.  He only has eyes for Lauren, who recently went through a horrible divorce.  They are thrown together when her ex-husband decides to sue her for half of her inheritance.  Kristen has their book coming out next called Seducing Lauren.  I can’t wait for the next books to come out.

If you like a sizzlin romance that will have you smiling and feeling giddy afterwards you will love, love, love, Loving Cara.

A Perfect Mistake covere90f2-synopsisHow can they have a future when their past is based on a lie?

The perfect preacher’s daughter, Verity Fairchild, has something that only she and God know about and she wants to keep it that way. Her mistake was easy to keep secret when she was out of town, but now that she’s come back to Hope Parish for the summer, she comes face-to-face with the guy responsible for it all. Boone Outlaw nearly ruined everything for her and despite the fact that he’s now working at her father’s church, she’s determined to stay as far away from him as possible.

Boone Outlaw doesn’t understand Verity’s anger towards him. He barely knows her. In high school she was Holy Mary Verity and she was off limits – except in his dreams where Verity seems way too real. Most of the time he was wasted in high school, not the type of boy Verity would ever look at twice, but he can’t shake the feeling that something might have happened between them. He’s going to break his own rules to get the answers he needs straight from Verity.

What will Verity do when she finds something in Boone that she never knew existed and her perfect mistake is the only thing that could stand between them and their happiness? Will she sacrifice Boone to keep her secret?

6e57f-reviewbigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472Hot, Sexy, and just Friggin Sensational!  This story is a lot spicier than A Perfect Mess.  I was fanning myself especially during the sit-ups scene.  Hot Damn!  It’s 12:30 am and I have to be at work in a few hours if that tells you anything.  I could not put it down.  I had to see what was going to happen with Verity and Boone.  Of course they were going to live happily ever after, but it is the -how do they get there- that keeps me reading.

Zoe did an amazing job with character development in this story.  She takes a girl that looks perfect on the outside “The Preachers Daughter” and shows us that you can’t judge a book by its cover.  Verity has a lot of demons that she is hanging on to and has to learn to confess her sins and share that burden even if it means that Boone will walk away from her.  Her parent’s approval of her is on the line.

Boone is an Outlaw and people judge the Outlaw Brothers based on their father’s actions.  The town judges those boys without looking at what is on the inside.  Boone has straightened up his act and is a caring person.  He is volunteering his time and money to fix up the church.  Why cant they see that?

When Verity realizes that she wrongly judged Boone her heart breaks.  She was no better than anyone else in the town.  As she gets to know him she falls head over heels and is so afraid that her secret will ruin everything they have built.

This book kept me on my toes and turning page after page to see what was going to happen next.  If you like romantic suspense with some scorching hot sex scenes that will wake up your girlie parts then you will love A Perfect Mistake.

A Perfect Mess Covere90f2-synopsisI know what you did last summer.

Aubree Walker, the perfect girl most likely to succeed, is sure there’s only one person who knows what she did.

Booker Outlaw, one of the three Outlaw brothers—all identical, all gorgeous, all from the wrong side of the tracks, and all pure bad boys. He was always the unpredictable one, the one who would be brash enough to make it big self-publishing horror novels on the internet. He promised never to tell, but everyone knows you can never trust an Outlaw.

Then a year later, in the middle of the night, she receives a phone call at Tulane. Her aunt, who took her in after her mother’s death, is in a coma under suspicious circumstances. Now she has to face that one person who knows all about what she did that summer—sexy Booker.

Returning to Hope Parish to be with her aunt, stirs up all those ugly memories. When Aubree starts getting threats, she can’t help but wonder if what she did last summer was tied to her aunt’s “accident.” Afraid, she turns to the only person who knows the truth and Booker doesn’t hesitate to offer his broad shoulder for her to lean on. But Booker has a secret of his own that could crush their fledgling relationship.

As the hot, sultry summer days on the bayou move on, she finds that even a perfectly smart girl can lose her heart to a perfectly bad boy. What is she going to do when someone starts asking questions Aubree doesn’t want to answer? She’s knee deep into a terribly dangerous, wholly life changing, who-can-she-really-depend-on perfect mess.

Warning: This book is for mature audiences only!
New Adult Contemporary Romance.

A Perfect Mess is part of the Perfect Secret series and is a Hope Parish novel. It can be read as a stand-alone novel or in any order with the series.

6e57f-reviewbigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472Ever wonder what happened to the one that got away?  But what if they both escaped each other.  That is Aubree and Booker’s story.  Aubree fled town after a terrible accident and Booker could not bring himself to go after her.  He wanted to but his fear of rejection kept him from tracking her down and tell her how he felt about her.

When Aubree is forced to come home because her only living relative has had an accident and is in a coma.  She is distraught to find out that her aunt fell down the stairs and is now fighting for her life. She blames herself because she left her aunt behind and ran from the feelings that she was having for Booker Outlaw.

There is a reason that Aubree has loved Booker since they were teenagers.  She has carried a dark secret with her.  She saw something that she should not have and stood by and did nothing to stop what was happening.  When she tells Booker what she saw, will he be able to forgive her, or will she fall from the pedestal he has kept her on for all these years.

This story is written in a “different language”.  What I mean by this is that this story takes place in the bayou and the author uses authentic Louisiana slang and phrases that I had never heard before.  This language helps to set the background for the story and contributes to the character development.

This book had it all including: action, suspense, mystery, friendship, family, love, and some sinfully sexy scenes between Booker and Aubree.  I really enjoyed this read.  And now that I have read both A Perfect Mess and A Perfect Mistake I was glad I read this one because it gave me some history of the Outlaw Brothers and what they have been through.

If you like a sexy outlaw, and love watching a spicy little redhead bring a man to his knees, you will love A Perfect Mess.

Legal Affairs by Sawyer Bennett Release Day Blitz + Review

LegalAffairsObjectionSynopsis

One year ago, I graduated from law school and embarked on a career as a purveyor of high priced legal shenanigans.

Six months ago, my boyfriend dumped me when I thought he might be proposing.

Two weeks ago, I got drunk and joined a secret sex club.

Two days ago, I had a torrid one-night stand with a stranger.

Today? Well, today I’m contemplating having an affair with my boss.

Matt Connover is all kinds of forbidden temptation wrapped up in a deliciously wicked package, and he’s made it clear… he’s only interested in sex.

My name is McKayla Dawson but everyone calls me Mac. I work at the powerhouse firm of Connover & Crown, LLP, where the law has never felt so hot.

But between you and me, I’m afraid my heart won’t survive these Legal Affairs.

Mad

 Excerpt

I’m frozen in place. I have to clue what to do. Yes, I have hormones, pheromones, and even just good old, run-of-the-mill moans stuck in the back of my throat, which are on the verge of busting loose. My mind whirls… what did Matt meant by that statement?

Do I slap him or jump him?

We stare at each other… his eyes blazing an inferno of desire, mine probably reflecting the “deer in the headlights” look.

Swallowing hard, I say, “I think—”

Matt lunges at me, catching me with one arm around my waist and the other swiping across my desk, sending binders, papers, folders, pens, a tape dispenser, a stapler, two legal pads and a box of paper clips flying to the floor. “Don’t say a fucking word, McKayla. Just don’t.”

Pushing one of his rock hard thighs in between my legs, he bends me back onto my desk and settles against me, raising both hands now to cup my face. My heart is on the verge of exploding in my chest, and only two things fill my mind. First, please, please, please kiss me, Matt.  Second, please, please, please don’t let me have a heart attack before he does.
I’m saved on both concerns as Matt pours lust, desire, anger, and passion into a kiss that causes my toes to curl against the flip-flops, which are barely clinging to my feet after I was practically thrown onto my desk.  My tongue is shy at first, but it only takes Matt one tiny rock of his hips against mine, and then it’s on. We kiss like we never kissed on that one night we spent together. It is filled with not only yearning, but with a bit of frustration and shame that we have no control over our actions.

This is wrong… we both know it.

Yet he hums with approval when I reach my hand down between us and give him a light stroke, and I practically convulse when one of his hands cup my breast.  For a brief moment, Matt seems to come to his senses and stills against me. He rises up from my mouth and stares at me deeply, worry creasing his forehead. He even curses just the way I’ve come to appreciate about him. “Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck.”

“We don’t have to—” I start to say, but he growls at me so I snap my mouth shut.

He stares at me for just a moment more, and then he abruptly stands up. I think it’s over, that reality has reappeared, and disappointment fills me. That lasts just a flicker of a moment because fantasy land returns as Matt starts stripping me of my clothes.
In less than fifteen seconds, he has me completely naked and splayed out on my desk in front of him. He looks down at me, eyes roaming, and he actually licks his lips like he’s getting ready to gorge himself.

Yes, I’m ringing the dinner bell… bring it on.

I expect Matt to undo his pants and mount up, but he surprises me when he pulls one of my chairs closer to the desk and sits down. He takes my legs, spreads them outward, and tugs me to the edge of the desk, throwing said legs rather haphazardly over his shoulders.
Pleasure and thrills blanket my body as I realize that he’s settling in to do me right. His face dives down, and I actually grunt… yes, grunt… at first contact. I then bite down hard on my tongue so I’m not screaming the rafters down.

I’m delirious with pleasure as Matt works my body to his liking. He uses touch and sound to give me the ultimate experience. Touch meaning fingers and tongue, and yes, even his chin, which has me bucking off the desk. Sound meaning the dirty, dirty things he whispers to me as he causes a rollercoaster of an orgasm to go rushing up my spine. I have to slap my hand over my mouth not to scream, and Matt looks up at me with pure male satisfaction.

It took him just under two minutes to send me to Heaven.

He’s just that fucking good.

My Review

bigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472

Who knew the law could be so sinfully sexy and lustfully delicious..

What would you do if your new boss was your most recent one night stand? Speak of the devil when McKayla Dawson walks into a board meeting to find out that her new boss is none other than her most recent one night stand. Matthew Connover aka Mr. 134 is not happy to see her walk through that door. Well that is just too damn bad. McKayla is a smart and strong woman and she is not about to let Mr. Connover terminate her employment because he happens to be her new boss. Just because the man gave her several amazing orgasms the night before did not mean that she could not behave professionally. He would just have to get over himself because McKayla would not be going anywhere without a fight. Will lust win in the end or can these two behave themselves?

Objection is going to leave you so hot and bothered you will be counting down the days until Stipulation comes out.

Bringing My Real Life Into Fictional Writing

By Sawyer Bennett

 So, I’m a lawyer. A trial lawyer to be exact. I’ve spent the past 16 years arguing my heart out to juries but honestly, it wasn’t that big of a transition to bring my creativity in oral prose to the pages.

I’ve been dying to write a romance with a legal theme floating in the background. Legal Affairs was the perfect opportunity and I have more ideas for future books that revolve around lawyers, hot sex, gooey romance and interesting cases.

In Legal Affairs, I went light on the legal action. This was mainly because each volume has a limited budget of words, but there is a defined case that our heroine, McKayla Dawson handles in this story. It’s an actual case based on one of the very first cases I handled when I was a young lawyer fresh out of law school. The factual details are straight from my own files and it was an amazing trip down memory lane.

One of my biggest challenges as a trial lawyer was getting a jury to step into my client’s shoes… to make them feel in their gut how much my client had been affected. It’s been an incredible journey to make my readers feel an emotional tie to the characters in my stories.  When that connection happens, it is beyond awesome.

Legal Affairs is a serial romance with a whole lot of hot and a little bit of funny. It has six volumes that will be released every two weeks, the first one, entitled Objection, on January 10, 2014. Each title is between 12,000-15,000 words with the last one close to 20,000 words.

Legal Affairs – Objection – releasing January 10, 2014
Legal Affairs – Stipulation – releasing January 24, 2014
Legal Affairs – Violation – releasing February 7, 2014
Legal Affairs – Mitigation – releasing February 21, 2014
Legal Affairs – Reparation – releasing March 7, 2014
Legal Affairs – Affirmation – releasing March 21, 2014

Legal Affairs: Objection is FREE for a limited time. Each installment thereafter will be priced at .99 cents.

Stolen Wishes by Lexi Ryan Release Day Blitz, Review, and **Giveaway**

1526310_568489136576966_542290288_ne90f2-synopsis**Contains sexual content and adult language and situations. Intended for mature readers.**

Cally…
A sexy smile. Intense blue eyes. A goodness that makes him want to save me from these rumors when no one else would care. I didn’t ask for a hero. William Bailey was never supposed to be anything more than a wish, a dream, an unrequited crush. Not for a girl like me–a girl whose fractured family has stolen her chance at a decent life.

William…
Since the death of my parents, I’ve always done what’s expected of me, what’s “best” for me. Until Cally. The moment her haunted eyes meet mine, the fractured pieces of my heart feel whole again. I don’t just want to save her. I need her to save me.

Stolen chances. Unbroken wishes. Two lonely souls grasping for hope in the darkness.

**This novella takes place seven years before the events in WISH I MAY and shows William and Cally falling in love for the first time. It can be read before or after WISH I MAY or on its own.**

bigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472

I did not think that I could love William Bailey any more then I already do but after Stolen Wishes I am head over heels, and crazy in love, when it comes to William Bailey.  The way that William puts Cally on a pedestal is breathtaking.  He falls hard and fast for her, and looks at her like she hung the moon and the stars in the sky.  Cally is smitten with William and admires him from afar.  She is overjoyed and overwhelmed when he actually pursues her.  He is her knight in shining armour.  Stolen Wishes is only the beginning of one of the most heart-wrenching and sinfully sexy love stories I have ever read.  This novella should make you run out and buy Wish I May.  If you already own Wish I May, after reading Stolen Wishes, William Bailey will own a piece of your heart.

Stolen Wishes Teaser 2 v2 (1)

Excerpt

“Hey, William,” a girl calls from the kitchen. “Why don’t you come in here and take a shot?

I hardly have a chance to tense before Will pulls me closer. “Can’t do that, Meredith.  My  date’s here.”

Lizzy and Hanna both turn to us at his words, and I feel my own eyes go wide.

“I’d consider it a personal favor if you could roll with this,” he whispers into my ear.

“Meredith has been trying to get me to do body shots since she got here two hours ago.”

“You don’t drink?” I ask, not that it’s my business. I’ve just never been to a party with  alcohol before, and I’m not sure what to expect. From the stories I’ve heard, I half expected everyone to be wasted by the time we got here.

“It’s not the drinking that I mind. She’s just not my type.” When I frown at him, confused, his lips quirk in a half­smile. “You do know what a body shot is, don’t you?”

I shake my head.

“Want to find out?” His fingers trail over the sensitive dip in my spine as he asks, and I  nod. I would probably agree to anything he asked me right now.

He takes me to the kitchen, his hot hand never leaving the small of my back.

Lizzy and Hanna step back and study us as he leads me to the island. I’d feel guilty about

abandoning them tonight, but they seem to be having a great time.

“Where’s the tequila, Max?” Will calls.

Max hoists a bottle of amber liquid in the air and snags a shot glass off the counter.

“Do you know what a snakebite is?” Will asks me quietly. He’s standing close so only I

can hear him when he talks.

I bite my lip. “I don’t really go to many parties.”

Next to us, Max fills the shot glass with tequila.

“A snakebite is a shot of tequila that you take with salt and lime,” Will explains to me.

“What makes it a body shot?” I ask.

His throat moves as he swallows, and his blue eyes go darker somehow, his pupils  getting bigger. His lips part as he studies mine. “It’s a body shot if you take all the parts of the snakebite off someone else’s body.”

That makes my pulse kick up a notch. I’m still trying to puzzle out the logistics when Max  calls,

“No hands, Bailey.”

Will winks at me. “And I can’t use my hands for anything but putting the salt on you.

Are you still game?”

I nod wordlessly, and I’m rewarded with one of Will’s full­out grins. I don’t need to know

details to understand his mouth is going to be on me, and I like the idea of that. A lot.

Will’s hands slide to my waist and tighten, and before I realize what he’s doing, he’s

hoisting me up on the counter. I squeak, and the girls cheer. All of them except Kristen  and Meredith, that is. They’re leaning against the fridge, scowling at me like I killed their  puppy.

Max hands me the shot glass and looks at me expectantly.

“Do I hold it?” I whisper.

“If you want,” Max says. “But I think you shouldn’t make it so easy on my boy here.”

Will shakes his head. “Whatever you’re comfortable with.”

Lizzy rushes over and cups her hand around my ear. “Slide it between your breasts. Trust

I gape at her, and she shrugs innocently before joining Hanna at the edge of the kitchen.

I may be inexperienced, but I’m not naïve and I get what this game is about. My cheeks

heat as I slide the glass into my cleavage. It’s cool against my hot skin, and Will’s eyes  burn into me as he watches me position it.

Max offers me a lime wedge.

“Do you need your friend to tell you what to do with that too?” Kristen calls.

“Shut up, Kristen,” Will says. “You didn’t know what you were doing your first time either.”

But she’s right. Lizzy shouldn’t have to tell me what to do. I take the lime and put it

between my teeth, facing out. The citrusy pulp presses against my lips, making them  tingle.

Or maybe the tingle is from the idea of William’s lips close to mine.

Will grins and brushes my hair off my neck. “Ready or not.”
