New Release + 5 Star Review + Giveaway: Mr. Perfect by J. A. Huss

Mr. Perfect
J.A. Huss
Publication date: April 27th 2016
Genres: Contemporary Romance

Wanting the perfect man doesn’t make me crazy. I just know what I like.

A powerful billionaire in a suit wasn’t even my first choice. Mcallister Stonewall was never on my radar, I didn’t even know he existed.

But I do now.

His hands are all over me at work. The heat of his chest pressing against my bare back as he bends me over the desk is the only thing on my mind.

He is my most forbidden desires unleashed. He is my new secret obsession. He is my Mr. Perfect.

Until the moment I realize… There’s no such thing as perfect.

EXCERPT:

“We own most of the land in the Tech Center. My father bought up the land thirty years ago before any of this was here. And we lease it out.”

Jesus. What kind of money is that? I can’t even begin to understand it.

“Anyway,” Mac says, standing. “I’m waiting in here for a reason.”

“Is that right?” I stand up too, but my heart beats a little faster when I take him in. He’s wearing a dark gray suit today, a blue shirt that is so light it’s barely a color, and another brilliant cerulean-blue tie that makes his matching eyes shine as they stare into mine.

I don’t know why, but I step backwards. His full attention on me suddenly feels more like a force than a look. He steps forward, hands reaching for me. I bump against the wall, no escape, and then he fists the front of my blouse and rips it open, revealing my silk cami.

My mouth opens in surprise.

He rips the cami apart too. And then, with one forceful whoosh, both garments are lying in a puddle of fabric on the floor.

“What are you doing?” I yell.

The intense stare turns to a boyish smile. “I’d like you topless for breakfast. And I get to call the shots for our dates.”

“Why do I even bother with you? Just why?” I refuse to cross my arms and cover my tits. Fuck him. Just fuck him. “Every time I start to think you’re not a pig, you go and do something like this.”

“It’s fun, right?” His smile never cracks.

“No,” I say. “It’s humiliating.”

“Your tits are nice, Ellie. You should not be ashamed of them.”

“I’m not ashamed of them—”

“Good. Because I’d like to stare at them while we have coffee and discuss our date tonight.”

A knock comes from Mac’s office and I might have a panic attack that someone will come in and find me bare like this.

“Hold that thought,” Mac says, leaning down to kiss my lips. “Breakfast is here. Sit,” he says, pushing on my shoulders until I slump into the window seat again. “I’ll be right back.”

And then he enters his office, pulling our connecting door closed.

I listen to the conversation in there as I look down at my clothes. What the hell was he thinking? The cami is dust. Ripped straight down the middle. At least the silk button-up shirt is only missing all the buttons. I can probably tie it around my waist to make it out to the parking lot, but—

There’s a jingle of a cart and plates. We have… room service? What kind of company has room service?

I guess I’m not all that surprised they have it up here. We have several restaurants on campus. The Atrium has a cafeteria. Maybe this came from the cafeteria?

Mac is laughing on the other side of the door, then I hear a polite thank you just before the sound of a closing door.

The connecting door swings open again and Mac is there, a wide grin on his face. “I hope you like pancakes.”

“This is not happening.”

“Oh, this is happening, Miss Hatcher. You are sitting here.” He points to the middle of the window seat as he pushes the cart towards me.

“I have no clothes, Mac. You ripped my cami. I’m going to have to tie that over-shirt on and go home to change. In fact,” I say, reaching down to get my blouse and pull myself together, “I’m not coming back. I’m done. Just when I think you’re a human, you act like an ape.”

“Would you just relax, Ellie?” He rips the shirt from my hands, balls it up, and then tosses it in the air, where it arcs perfectly and sails into the new trashcan that matches the desk. “Three points,” he says.

“It’s like you live in your own world or something. I think it’s funny that you accused me of living in some delusional fantasy, but you, Mr. Stonewall, you’re a raving lunatic who thinks the world is his asylum.”

“I’m going to take that as a compliment. Now sit. I’ve got it all under control.”

Michel’s Review

Reading great books is my personal escape from my very ordinary world.  I embrace the stories because they are very different from my personal life.  They are my entertainment.

Mr. Perfect by J. A. Huss is an erotic romance novel.  It is the combination of fantasy, romance, and an entertaining story.  It is purely fiction and not intended to be perceived as a reality.  It is meant to engage and entertain the readers.  It is meant to leave them with a good reading experience and a few emotional delights.

Mr. Perfect starts out with a lusty bang.  It’s an office romance that starts out as a purely misconceived sexual encounter.

Ellie Hatcher has worked for Stonewall Entertainment for seven years.  Her job is to take care of the celebrities appearing on the various shows.  She is a master at her job.  The celebrities love her.  Day in and day out she does the same thing and does it without much fuss.  She is a valued professional even though she hasn’t climbed the Stonewall Entertainment corporate ladder.  She has other dreams and aspirations for success in life.  Stonewall Entertainment is merely a stepping stone to the future.

It’s the typical Wednesday at Stonewall Entertainment until a spoiled, self absorbed rockstar is scheduled to appear on one the prime shows.  He’s demanding and a bit eccentric. Ellie is used to his demands but slips up when she forgets about the peanut butter sandwich in her purse.  She forgot he had a peanut allergy.  She almost killed him.  That is just the beginning of the worst day of her life.

Ellie’s bad day turns even more disastrous.  An unscheduled jet appears in the hanger and it is not the former boss that she used to fantasize about.  It appears she has a new boss, Macallister Stonewall.  When she gets summoned to the main corporate headquarters, she knows she’s about to be fired.  Instead she is promoted.  She’d rather stay down in the lowly hanger away from her new sexy boss.  With the promotion comes a handsy boss that is getting her naughty text messages that were sent to her former boss that is not supposed to be able to receive her messages because he no longer has that phone.  The problem is the new boss has the phone and is playing games with her.  Rather than be subjected to the game, she quits and tries to make her escape from Stonewall Entertainment. Let’s just say rather than getting out of the building, she’s captured by her boss who refuses her resignation.  His negotiating techniques are downright thrilling but not enough to change her mind until she remembers he has damaging texts and pintrest boards.  She has to get the phone back before she leaves Stonewall.

Mac and Ellie engage in some fantastic sexcapades at the office but then things start to change from fun and flirty to a more committed sensual relationship.  Ellie still plans on leaving Stonewall but Mac is determined to keep her.

MacAllister Stonewall is Mr. Perfect.  On the surface the man is everything one would expect in perfection.  The problem is Mr. Perfect is far from the title.  He has a mysterious past that has been erased.  He’s hiding a lot of secrets.  He’s selling off Stonewall Entertainment without justification or reason.  He’s determined to keep Ellie within reach but refuses to open up to her.

When I started this book I was instantly drawn into Ellie’s world.  When the sexcapades begin between Ellie and Mac, I was thinking oh boy that is a big no no. This crosses the line of sexual harassment in the work place.  It crosses the lines of moral ethics.  Then I pushed those thoughts out of my head because I remembered this is fiction, this is pure fantasy romance meant to entertain.  On a scale of one to ten on the heat index, this book was a solid nine.  But then the J. A. Huss special magic took over the book.  The book became more than an erotic romance, it became an erotic mystery with very complex characters.

J. A. Huss is known for writing erotic romances that involve mystery, intrigue, and suspense.  She’s known for building complicated plots that evolve through several books.  The plots take twist and turns that keep the readers glued to the pages and committed to all the books connected in the plot.  Mr. Perfect is just the beginning and I believe the mysterious future Mr. books are going to explode!

When We Collide
Amazon: http://amzn.to/1KaZzKy

From New York Times Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson comes a gripping new tale of loss and love.

William has spent six years running from his past and the last eight months trying to rid his mind of the dreams that increasingly haunt his nights. Trapped in a world of false ambitions and feigned affections, William knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’s going to give.

Maggie had lived her entire life without hope until one man showed her what it meant to be loved. He’d been her light in a lifetime of darkness. Six years ago, that darkness stole him away. Without him, she’s surrendered herself to an existence she doesn’t know how to escape.

When the family William left behind is struck by tragedy, he is called back to the one place he’s sworn to never return to again. In a moment that will change his life forever, William comes face to face with the girl who, with one look, captured his heart. He is unable to ignore the buried desires and the hope for the future they’d once believed they’d have.

Now William is ready to fight to take back what had been stolen from him six years before. But he never imagined what that fight might cost him.

A.L. Jackson gives you an intimate look into the lives of a family bound by an unseen connection in this new contemporary romance.

“There are some love stories that will take you on such intensely emotional journeys, shake you to the very core of your being, make you scream, cry, curse, throw things against walls, but also fill you with more hope than you ever thought possible – THIS is one of those books.This is the second novel by A.L. Jackson that I have read and I am ready to build this woman a shrine.” Natasha is a Book Junkie

The Detroit Love Duet – Book 1

By Kim Karr

Buy : Amazon / B & N / ITunes / Kobo

Every city needs a hero, but Detroit’s white knight just might be a villain.

A rough childhood branded Jasper Storm trouble. A bad boy. Not worth a damn. His love of cars was the only thing that could battle his delinquency. With the need for speed in his blood, he overcame his wayward ways. Mostly. Now the broken city of Detroit hails him their shining star. And the man behind a new cutting-edge automobile is ready to turn this bankrupt town around.
Charlotte Lane was the tomboy who lived next door. She was his best friend. He was her protector. Then tragedy struck and she disappeared, forever—or so he thought.
Everything Jasper does in life is fast. He talks fast, f*cks fast, and drives fast. But when one reckless turn brings him face-to-face with the childhood he has tried very hard to forget, he finds himself on the edge of wondering if he shouldn’t slow down.
Time hasn’t erased who they are though. Jasper has many reasons to hate Charlotte and keep his distance, which is easier said than done. Soon she’s infiltrating his every thought and he can’t stay away. Back in town with an agenda of her own, she should push him aside. Make him turn around. Walk away herself. Yet she can’t.
With the past lurking between them, they proceed with caution. That is until one sex-filled night leads to murder, and things are forced to change. Now that Detroit’s biggest ally has suddenly become suspect number one, will Charlotte—the girl Jasper once kept safe—be the one to save him?

WhenImWithYou_FrontCover_LoResNate:

It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by love but not understand it. My parents, my sister, and just about everyone around us has no trouble accepting that love. To give your trust to someone else and believe they would die before hurting you. I’ve witnessed it—I’ve seen the power of it—but I’ve also seen the pain. Because for me, I’ve only loved someone I could never have, and my biggest fear is that by giving her my love, all I would do is ruin her. I should have tried harder, but I’m not sure I can because I only feel complete when I’m with her.

Emberlyn:

The only time I feel like I belong is when he’s near. His infectious smile warms me straight to my bones. Any insecurities I have vanish with just a wink from him. A sliver of his attention makes me feel invincible. But all it took was one drunken night of truths for me to lose everything I had begun to crave. Now, I’m not sure how to move on because I only feel complete when I’m with him.

 

He said I was too young. I said he was perfect. He said our families wouldn’t understand. I said we could weather any storm. He said he would ruin me. And he was right.

Michel’s Review

When I’m With You by Harper Sloan is the third book in the Hope Town Series.  Not only is the Hope Town Series a fabulous spinoff of the Corps Security Series, it easily stands on it’s own merit.  When I’m With You is my favorite book in the Hope Town series because it features two of my favorite offspring in the Corps Security crew.  I also love seeing one of my favorite characters in the Corps Security Series, Maddox Locke, handing over his little girl to another man.  Is Nate Reid strong enough to stand up to Maddox Locke and win Emberlyn Locke’s heart?

Nate and Ember have had a special connection even though they are six years apart in age.  At the tender age of eighteen Ember finally had the courage to confess her heartfelt feelings to Nate.  Rather than embracing Ember’s heart, Nate rejected her confessions of love because of the age difference and he wasn’t ready to settle down in a relationship.  This strained their precious friendship and sent it down a new path.  Ember gave Nate one more chance at his sister’s wedding but once again Nate fell short of her expectations and this time she’s done.

Three years can make a huge difference in people’s lives.  It gave Ember time to grow up, mature, and become a real woman.  It gave her the opportunity to study art and pursue a career as an artist.  It also gave Nate time to get himself together.  He is finally pursuing his professional aspirations and is becoming his own man, not a man that lives in the shadows of Corps Security.  He’s reached the point in his life where he’s ready to settle down with one woman.  The only woman he wants is Emberlyn Locke and she wants nothing to do with him.  She has gone out of her way to avoid him.  She has been absent from all of the family functions.  He intends to turn it around.

Ember has moved on from Nate.  Although she has a boyfriend, he’s not what she wants.  He’s turning into someone that she’s beginning to fear.  After a heated break-up, Emberlyn is ready to move on.

Nate and Ember are finally getting a chance to make more of their special connection.  Everything is happening at warped speed.  Nate is busy with his new business and Ember is busy preparing for her art show.  They barely have time for one another let alone anything else.  As far as Nate is concerned he will make the time for Ember no matter what obstacles stand in his way.  He will have to deal with one scary father, a group of meddling family members, and a crazy ex boyfriend.  Not a problem, he is Nate Reid, a man to be reckoned with.

I loved Nate and Ember’s story.  It was everything I hoped Harper Sloan would give these two dynamic people.  It was perfection.

For the record… Nate Reid can put me in time out anytime he pleases.  And… I still love daddy dearest, Maddox Locke.  These two men make me swoon!
