Release Blitz: Battle of the Bulge by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Battle of the Bulge

Mimi Jean Pamfiloff


Synopsis:
From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes BATTLE OF THE BULGE, Book Four of the OHellNO Series. (A Standalone.)
“Chicks can’t be bodyguards. Especially hot chicks.”
MY NAME IS MITCH HOFER. I’m a world-famous swimmer from Australia, best known for three things: my gold medals, my looks, and filling out a swimsuit with my…eh-hem—bulky equipment. Let’s just say there’s a reason my nickname is “the Bulge.”
But beyond the fame, sponsors, and glory, there’s more to me than people know, including one hell of a mess I’ve gotten mixed up in. Life-or-death stuff, so bring in the professionals. Just don’t give me a chick bodyguard. Especially a young hot one who distracts me at every turn and hates my guts…
MY NAME IS ABI CARTER, and I hate Mitch Hofer. Yeah, he might be the sexiest champion swimmer in the world, but I’d give this guy a gold medal for being a first-class jerk.
Unfortunately, my boss has given me a choice—guard Mitch or get another job. And I really need the money. I can be professional, but if Mitch says “chicks can’t be bodyguards” one more time, I just might strangle him myself.
Still, something about the way Mitch keeps looking at me makes me think there’s more to his story. It’s almost as if he’s trying to drive me away. But why?

Just one problem: I’m suddenly in a bad slump. And it started the moment I got dumped by Elle, the nerdy goddess with thick glasses, a smokin’ hot body, and a genius IQ.

Digging A Hole (Book #3)

From New York Times Bestseller, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, comes a new Romantic Comedy.
He’s the meanest boss ever.
She’s the sweet shy intern.
They’re about to wreck each other crazy.
My name is Sydney Lucas. I am smart, deathly shy, and one hundred percent determined to make my own way in the world. Which is why I jumped at the chance to intern for Mr. Nick Brooks despite his reputation. After ten failed interviews at other companies, he was the only one offering. Plus, everyone says he knows his stuff, and surely a man as stunningly handsome as him can’t be “the devil incarnate,” right? Wrong.
Oh…that man. That freakin’ man has got to go! I’ve been on the job one week, and he’s insulted my mother, wardrobe shamed me, and managed to make me cry. Twice. Underneath that stone-cold, beautiful face is the evilest human being ever.
But I’m not going to quit. Oh no. For once in my life, I’ve got to make a stand. Only, every time I open my mouth, I can’t quite seem to muster the courage. Perhaps my revenge needs to come in another form: destroying him quietly.
Because I’ve got a secret. I’m not really just an intern, and Sydney Lucas isn’t my real name.

Review: Luck of the Devil by Meghan March




Blurb

New York Times bestselling author Meghan March continues the story of ruthless, calculating billionaire Jericho Forge in Luck of the Devil. 

My poker face has always been one of my greatest assets, along with my grit and determination. I was beholden to no one. Asked permission for nothing.
Then Jericho Forge took my life by storm.
I traded my freedom for something infinitely more precious, but I didn’t realize he was holding an unbeatable hand.
Now, all I have to do is survive the high-stakes game that is my life—with my heart intact.
But not falling in love with Forge? That will take the luck of the devil. 

Luck of the Devil is the second book of the Forge Trilogy, and should be read following Deal with the Devil. The Forge Trilogy concludes in Heart of the Devil.





4.5 Stars
Review by Lisa Kane 

This series has lost none of its intrigue and suspense! When Deal with the Devil ended on that huge cliffy, India Baptiste (really, it's India Forge now) left Jericho's island with Bastien de Vere, his sworn enemy. Bastien is up to no good and is determined to ruin Jericho's life. Jericho is no fool and and what's his will stay his...and that means India. 

My business is my life. That's one thing that never changes, no matter what. But today, I let myself get sidetracked. Because of her. 

Look for some familiar beloved characters from some previous series (Score!) In Luck of the Devil, we see Jericho slowly thawing from his hardened shell and Indie letting down her guard long enough to trust Jericho with something other than her body. 

What would it be like to always know someone would be there to catch you, no matter what? That you will never fall? That you're safe? 

There are troubles from within as well as forces trying to teat these two apart. Indie doesn't even know secrets about her that will leave her head spinning. It's a fine line that Jericho is walking just to keep his marriage together, a marriage he never knew he wanted. 

"I might not be a good guy, but I'm not the fucking devil you want me to be either." 

Of course, just when it seems maybe they are on the right track and both want to make things real between them...Boom it all explodes and we are left with the mother of all cliffys!

4 Stars
Review by Jen Skewes 


I loved Jessica Ruben’s Vincent and Eve series and was excited to find out that she was writing another book, based on a character from this series. I immediately became a fan of Ms. Ruben’s after reading this series.  Her writing just sucks you in and Warrior Undone was no different/

Lauren is in Vegas for her friend’s Bachelorette party.  The last person she ever expected to see was Slade, the guy she spent one hot, passionate and amazing night with, after her friend Eve’s wedding.    There was no denying the chemistry then and when she sees him again it still exists.  This man just exudes sex.  Everything about him is hot and sexy.  When things go wrong at the club, they are both at, he is right by her side taking care of her for the remainder of the night.  When she wakes up in the morning, it all comes back to her and she realizes that she needs to get out of there fast.  But when she gets home things aren’t easy for her. She no longer feels like herself. Or maybe she just hasn’t been her true self for a long time.  A phone call to her best friend Eve brings her right back to Vegas for the next two weeks. But that also means seeing Slade, since he is best friends with Eve’s husband.

Slade is a really good man, but he is also a very broken man.  He is a retired Navy SEAL and lately what he saw wile overseas is beginning to haunt him. His mind keeps bringing him back to the past, causing issues in his life and turning him into someone that he is not. He is battling PTSD in a bad way, but he is also battling it in his own way and by himself.  Seeing Lauren again brings back memories of that one night together knows she was love and a family, but he also knows that he cannot give that to her.  She is here for a few weeks and can only give her a small part of him while she is here./. She wants more.  Will giving her more only hurt her in the end?  You will have to read to find out what happens.

I loved Slade.  He has so many demons to face and the way he chooses to battle them may not have been the right way, but I think he was so afraid of what he would lose.   Not realizing that doing it his way truly could cost him a lot more.  He is a good man despite what he is going through or his actions.  I could not help but feel for this man and all that he has been through.  I saw how much Lauren meant to him and how he wanted to be the best man for her, but sometimes things out of your control take over and you are not sure how to handle them or make them go away. 

I really liked Lauren but at times she seemed to be wishy washy when it came to him.  I understand her feelings and wanting him, and I also understand her taking whatever she could get from this man.  But I think it was more about her feelings towards the end where she was showing her strength, but I felt like it wasn’t her/. I can’t go into too much detail without giving away spoilers so I will just leave it at that. 

I loved this book.  I loved Slade and Lauren together, even if at times I wasn’t sure if they should be together.  I will admit that at times their decisions, actions and feelings gave me a bit of whiplash but in the end all I wanted was for them to be happy and together.  This book deals with a heavy topic which Ms. Ruben handled with care.  You see just enough to understand the demons and torture that Slade has been going through.  I felt all the emotions with this book. The love, the hurt, the pain and the happiness.  Another great book from Ms. Ruben.

Review Blitz: Lessons From a One-Night Stand by Piper Rayne










If you find yourself having banged your new boss—the principal—in the back of your Jeep one drunken night, here’s a few takeaways based on my experience...

Lesson One: Always get her FULL name.

Lesson Two: Consider asking what she does for a living.

Lesson Three: Find out why she’s moved to town. Get details. Details are crucial.

Lesson Four: Don’t alter her bio in front of an auditorium of high school students unless you know she has a sense of humor for that sort of thing.

Lesson Five: If you ignore Lesson Four, apologize instead of flirt when you’re sent to the principal’s office.

Lesson Six: NEVER sleep with her again.

Lesson Seven: Pay attention to this one—it’s the most important of them all.
Don’t fall for your one-night stand.
Class dismissed.

Review by Jen Skewes

I absolutely adored this book.  It was sweet, fun and sexy.  This is the first book that I have read from this duo and I cannot believe that it took me this book to read one of their books.  I have quickly become a fan after reading this one and cannot wait for more. 
Austin and his family grew up n a small town in Alaska.  He is a his school teacher and baseball coach and is also the guardian of his younger siblings since losing his parents 9 years ago.  When he introduces the new principal at his school he never expected it to be his one-night stand from the other night.  Yes that is correct, the sexy woman that he had int he back of his jeep is now his boss.  If that wasn't bad enough word quickly gets out.  Living in such a small town, word certainly travels fast.  their little tryst is no out in the open and while that should be a problem with Austin, all he can think about is Holly, his one night stand turned boss.

Holly moved to Alaska to take the temporary principal position .  When she see Austin for the first time she is shocked.  And at the same time her mind cannot help but go back to that night, causing her to get all hot and bothered when it comes to Austin.  The attraction is there, but Holly's misconceptions when it comes to Austin, causes her to tired lightly in a way.  But there is not ending the chemistry and how much they want each other.  This town is small and while they may have moved on from the Jeep incident, these two will continue to be the talk of the town.  Read the book to find out how.

I really enjoyed this book and loved Austin.  He is sweet, kind, sexy and fun.  I loved how he wanted to protect Holly and loved watching them fall for each other.  They were just a fun couple who made me laugh.  they also had their touching moments as well as they opened up to each other.  I loved the family dynamic and cannot wait for the next one.  This is the beginning of a great series that I am looking forward to reading.

“We need you to introduce Principal Radcliffe.” She peers behind me then pushes up on her tiptoes to whisper in my ear, “Malcolm, I mean Vice Principal Ealey, called in this morning. I think he was still…”

Fay doesn’t have to finish the sentence. Malcolm Ealey went through a public divorce last year and has been spending a lot of his time at the Lucky Tavern, drowning in a helluva lot more than his sorrows. That’s why, even though he should have become our temporary principal, the school board decided to hire someone new.

“Why me?”

She hands me a piece of paper. “The kids look up to you, and everyone thinks that the kids will welcome Principal Radcliffe if you introduce her.”

Her. Another woman. Hopefully this one is well-caffeinated and not pregnant. We’ll all stand a better chance that way.

I accept the piece of paper, looking over what I need to say. “Fine.”

I’m not scared of public speaking. I’ve got two teenage girls at home. You don’t know a hostile environment until you’re trying to break up a fight between those two.

“You’re the best, Austin.” Fay squeezes my forearm then walks down the hall.

My footsteps slow as I read over the new principal’s bio. What the hell is a Yale graduate doing in Alaska at Lake Starlight High School? After skimming over her education, I fold up the paper. I can wing it from there. Besides the kids couldn’t care less about what’s printed on that sheet.

Heading into the auditorium, I search out the face of our new principal, but I know everyone here.

“Her meeting with the superintendent is running a tad late, so if you could stall, I’ll tap you on the shoulder when it’s safe to announce her,” Fay informs me.

“I’m not a zoo keeper.”

Fay laughs.

I will not miss this part of my job next year.

Before I realize it, I’m in front of the podium, clearing my throat and introducing myself, as if everyone here doesn’t already know who I am. Sedona rolls her eyes and looks away. I have no fucking clue why she’s so embarrassed of me. I mean, look at me. Six foot two, two-ten, short, neat haircut. I work out four times a week, hike, bike, ski. My muscles aren’t from just the gym…

Okay, before I keep sounding like a male-seeking-female want ad, let’s get on with how my day went into the shitter in a matter of twenty minutes.

I tell a few jokes, and the kids loosen up a bit. Maybe I should rethink the whole college baseball coach thing and go for stand-up comedy. I’m pretty good at this.

Fay taps my shoulder, and thank God, because I’m running out of material.

I pull the paper out of my back pocket and clear my throat one more time. “All right, everyone. We all know that Principal Miller has left us to enjoy her new baby, so we’re welcoming a new principal into our school. Our new principal for the remainder of the year is Dr. Radcliffe. She graduated from Yale with her doctorate in education. She comes here from the lower forty-eight, so make sure you give a big Alaskan welcome!”

About half the kids in the auditorium clap while the rest of them stare at the stage with an expression that only a bunch of unimpressed and uninterested teenagers can manage.

Time to grab their interest and get them to buy in. “Principal Radcliffe’s hobbies include streaking during football games, ferret racing, and taking surveys for money.”

The kids roar with laughter, finally looking as if they’re interested and want to be here. Fay steps up and nudges me.

“Sorry,” I mumble. “We’ll bring Dr. Radcliffe out to explain her hobbies in more depth.” I turn from the podium at the sound of heels clicking across the stage.

This is the part where my mouth drops open and my testicles jerk up, seeking protection.

See the auburn-haired woman walking right toward me? The one who looks as pissed off as Sedona did when I honked my horn in the parking lot this morning?

Yeah, that’s my new boss.

The new principal of Lake Starlight High School.

I don’t believe in kissing and telling, but I’ll tell you—this is the first and only principal I’ve ever given an orgasm to in the backseat of my Jeep.

Review by Jen Skewes
I loved this book.   The entire series is fantastic, but Jordan's story completely exceeds any expectations that I had.  I was so excited when I found out his book was coming.  Honestly I don't think that I realized this series would continue and we would get to see more of the characters the we loved.  We met Jordan in the prior books and based on the Jordan that me met and his past "relationship" I thought this story was going to be completely different from what it was.  But I am so glad that it was because Jordan not only got his HEA but he got it with the person who was so perfect for him.

Allie just moved to a new town to live with her best friend Sasha and work at the same bar with her.  She needed to escape her life, leaving it all behind her.  She had enough and needed to be on her own and experience life the way she wanted it, not how everyone else expected her to.  When she first sees Jordan Weston she cannot take wee eyes off of him.  The sexiness is ripping off him.  But when she finds out he is her boss, she is not only a little embarrassed but knows that nothing can ever happen between them.

From the moment Jordan saw Allie, he was a goner, but despite how attracted he was to her it was complicated.  when Jordan was younger he lost everything  and after that moment he moved in with his aunt and Uncle and lived a good life.  But that night still haunts him, he has is guard up for so many reasons.  He has a relationship that he needs to figure out.  Throw Allie and his attraction to her in the mix and it makes for one complicated and intense ride.  

When they are together, they are perfect and all I wanted was for the two of them to be together.  But there seemed to be so much standing in their way.  Allie needed to find herself, be on her own before jumping into anything.  And Jordan has been so screwed up by what happened in his past, and not knowing where he wants other parts of his life to go, he too needs to really fire out what he wants.  Now I think anyone can see what these two wanted, but they had to fire it out themselves.  It certainly was not an easy ride.  

There were moments where I felt like my heart was in my throat.  My heart broke for them, for what they had or didn't have.  But it was also the moments from the prior book that we get to relive through Jordan's point of view that completely wrecked me.  

I love Jordan.  I just love everything about him.  He is such an great guy who is loyal and thankful to those who have stood by him.  Family is the most important thing to him.  Allie brought out so much in him, and with her he slowly let his guard down and that is what I loved.  We get to seee the Jordan that is underneath ll of those layers.  Allie was sassy and sweet and I loved her.  What I loved the most about her is that she loved Jordan for who he was.  It never bothered her that he was bi-sexual, or how complicated he was.  She loved him for him. 

D. Kelly once again created a beautiful and amazing story that I did not want t put down.  From the moment I started reading I was submerged back in the world of the Westons.  I honestly have been in a book funk lately, with it taking longer than normal to finish a book.  But I devoured Interlude!!  I m happy to see that this series is not ending with this book.  I cannot even tell you how excited I am for Daren's story.

Read an excerpt from INTERLUDE

“You’re just a big ol’ loveable ball of fur, aren’t you? Why did your daddy name you Fat Bastard? That’s just mean.”

“Because that’s what he is to most people.”

I jump and grab the cat, who isn’t pleased I disturbed his resting place. “Jesus, Jordan! You scared the crap out of me.”

He leans back against the wall, a grin kicking up at the corner of his mouth. Jordan seems tired but also quite amused. “Sorry, I didn’t expect anyone to be in my house. And I definitely didn’t expect to see my ornery cat curled up in your lap. Did you cast a spell on him?”

“He’s really that bad? I thought Sasha was exaggerating. All I did was feed him, give him water, and talk to him.”

Jordan takes a seat next to me, and I swear the temperature in here just rose about ten degrees. What is it about him that affects me like this? He’s not my type at all. Then again, my type hasn’t worked out so well for me either.

“Fat Bastard earned his name all by himself. Maybe you should have been the one to find him instead of me. I’ve never seen him take to someone like this, except with kids, but kids are pretty special in their own right, so I figured that was probably normal.”

Oh my God, he likes kids.

I’m not sure how to reply because I’m still stuck on the kid thing, but I get a reprieve when my phone rings. Jordan passes it to me and accidentally hits the speaker button.

“Hello? Allie … Christ, Allie, it’s about time! Are you finally going to talk to me?”

Shit. Evan is pissed. Jordan’s eyes cloud over like a thunderous rainstorm as he scowls at my phone.

“Evan, I can’t talk right now.”

“The hell you can’t. The gala is in three days, Allie. We’re announcing our engagement, your father is out of his mind, and he froze your trust fund. You have no money, Allie. It’s time to stop having a tantrum and come home.”

This is so embarrassing. My gaze locks on J’s, and I mouth “I’m sorry.”

“Evan, I suggest you do some damage control. Find the trollop you were fucking and announce your engagement to her instead for all I care. As I said in my letter, I’m not coming back. I’m sorry if you were planning to live off my trust fund, but if I can live without it, so can you.”

“You selfish bitch!” Evan rages.

Jordan’s eyes widen before he opens his mouth, and when he does, I’m not sure if I want to kiss him or punch him—or both.

“Babe, come back to bed. My cock misses your lips.”

“Who the hell is that?!” Evan screams.

Jordan nudges the cat to the floor and scoots closer to me. “This is the man Allie is currently fucking. Who are you?”

Evan sputters, and I can picture him losing his cool. “Allie, what is going on?”

Jordan flips me onto his lap, and I squeal in surprise. My eyes widen as he mouths “Go with it.”

What do I have to lose at this point?

Jordan leans in closer, holding the phone between us. “Come on, babe. Hang up the phone and let’s go back to bed.”

“Bed? That’s my fiancée you’re talking about. Allie Bear, tell me this is some kind of sick joke,” Evan whines.

“There’s no ring on her finger. Besides, possession is nine tenths of the law, and since her pussy was just wrapped around my dick, I’d say that makes her more mine than yours right now. Wouldn’t you?”

My cheeks flush as J runs his fingers across one with a lazy grin.

“Come on, Bear, tell him you’re just paying me back. A little quid pro quo, right?”

Jordan snickers. “You call her Bear? That’s adorable, but I think she’s more of a tigress myself. My little Allie Cat.” Jordan drops his mouth to my neck, and I can’t help the moan that escapes me. “Hear that, Evan? Doesn’t sound like anyone’s fiancée to me.” Jordan’s lips ghost over mine, and I whimper. It’s been a long time since I’ve been this attracted to someone, if ever.

“This isn’t over, Allie. Do you hear me?” Evan is probably redder than a beet, but when Jordan lowers his mouth to mine, it erases the image of Evan in my mind.

He kisses me loudly, like a man on a mission. Weaving his hands through my hair, he pulls me close. J nips my bottom lip, and I gasp in pleasure, his length growing beneath me as I press into him with a contented sigh. He turns off my phone and tosses it to the opposite side of the couch.

Jordan’s mouth closes over mine, and I fall into his kiss with all my senses. His tongue meets mine and claims it. This isn’t a sweet getting-to-know-you kiss. This is a sexual awakening I never knew I was missing, and I want more. Evan is already a distant memory as I press myself closer while losing myself in his kiss. As I tug on his hair, he growls into my mouth. I remember the freshly fucked look he had to him when we met, and I want to be the one to make him look that way. I want to be the one on my knees for him.

Cover Reveal: Roommate Duet Series by Kennedy Fox









I saw her first.
Blonde. Gorgeous. Feisty.
I was smitten.


But it didn’t matter because she chose him and he was my best friend and roommate. I’d never be able to compete with that, so I pushed her away instead. It was easy when she lived hours away, and I didn’t have to see her every day, but then she moved in with us.
Now, I’m screwed.

To her singing in the shower every morning, dancing in the kitchen while she makes coffee, and doing yoga in our living room, I can’t stop thinking about her in all the wrong ways. She’s not mine and never will be, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to push her against a wall and claim her mouth.

She’s constantly on me for making messes, bringing chicks home every weekend, and being a smartass when their PDA gets on my nerves. Considering neither of them know how I feel, it’s not fair for the way I act toward them. I should move out so I can get over her for good; however, the selfish part of me can’t let go.

But then the unthinkable happens...
When my best friend dies in a motorcycle accident, the two of us are left to grieve our loss together. Instead of pushing her away, I pull her closer.

Just as we come to terms with our new reality, she finds out she’s pregnant with his baby.
And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my life...

*BABY MINE is an angsty, emotional, slow-burn romance wrapped up in a heartbreakingly delicious love story. It's book 1 in the Hunter & Lennon duet and must be read first.*
