Blog Tour for K.C. Lynn's Cockloft



Title: COCKLOFT
Author: KC Lynn
Release Date: August 18, 2017

TBR Link: Goodreads



Synopsis





Cockloft: A firefighter term used as a structural space above ceiling and below rafters, often connecting adjacent occupancies and permitting fire to spread laterally, often unseen.

Gabriel Martinez is the most arrogant and infuriating man I’ve ever met. He has a knee-weakening smirk that makes me want to kiss—no—slap it off his rude, sexy face. Judging by his ego, you’d think the hose in his pants is as big as the one on his fire truck. Not that I know anything about that nor do I want to. Nope, not at all. He’s already been forgotten like last season’s Michael Kors.

CeCe Kensington is as pretentious and spoiled as they come. The ridiculous purses she shoulders around are as big as her attitude. And don’t get me started on her mile-long legs or full, glossy lips that are meant to be wrapped around a guy’s… If she only knew the dirty things I think about doing to that sassy mouth of hers, she'd be hightailing it back to her side of town.

✿¸.•´¸✿*´¨) ¸.•*¨✿

When the beautiful boutique owner and sexy firefighter meet in the most unlikely situation, their two worlds collide, creating an explosion of misperceptions and combustible heat, trapping them in a fire they never saw coming. 


















4.5 Fantastic Stars!
Review by Lisa Kane



CeCe Kensington wakes in the middle of the night by the fire alarm in her apartment building. Thinking it’s a false alarm just like every other time, she doesn’t leave. But it does seem legit, so she searches for the one thing beside her dog, Pep, which she cherishes. Digging in her closet to find her treasured memento, she’s interrupted by a gorgeous hot firefighter who has no time for her antics. She tries to explain, but he cuts her off.

“You wanna know what my problem is? My brothers need help fighting a fire and I’m stuck here with you because you didn’t evacuate like you were supposed to!”


She has to go down a ladder to get out. Gabe Martinez has already had quite the eyeful of CeCe in her skimpy panties and top. Now he has his face crotch level while she gets her to safety. There may not be any flames around them, but there sure as hell is smoke!

After their brief but unforgettable encounter, fate brings them together again, when Gabe is called out for a possible gas leak in the complex where CeCe’s business, Kensington Palace is located. CeCe has always been obsessed by fashion. She may have had a privileged upbringing but her father’s death and her own ambition are what made a success of her high-end fashion shop. Her father treated her like his princess, and she is determined to honor him.

You will always be my princess and this home is forever your palace.

Gabe comes from humble roots, and he was forced at an early age to become the man of the family. He earned every dollar he could to support his family. He has his own reasons for why he has little tolerance for rich and spoiled people.

But there’s no denying that CeCe has a burning fire that only Gabe can extinguish. So let the inferno begin!

“Miss Kensington had a wet spot in the back that needed to be taken care of.”
Oh-my-god.

Cockloft is a light read, with a touch of drama and angst. Just enough to keep things interesting. Two opposites attract. But are their backgrounds and social styles too much of a barrier to make things work?

“I know you’ll always be your father’s princess but I want you as my queen.”

Release Blitz for Emma Chase's Royally Endowed




Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him?? 

Sexy. As. Hell. 

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, gorgeous royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really. 

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after. 

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely. 

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go.
***
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts. 

Any woman would be proud to call him hers. 

But there’s only one woman he wants. 

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her. 

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits. 

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.




Review by Lisa Kane
4 Royal Stars!!


Ellie Hammond is the sister of Olivia Hammond. The one who is married to Prince Nicholas Pembrook. She stayed behind in New York to run the family bakery while her sister chased her royal dreams. Nicholas has asked his most trusted bodyguard Logan St. James to go to New York and watch over Ellie. 


“Which is why I’m asking you. Will you stay in New York? Will you help Ellie, watch over her…make sure she’s safe?


Ellie is more than a little god smacked over Logan. From the time she was a high school senior she has been smitten with him, but he is a man and she is a young girl. 


Logan St. James. 


Bodyguard. Totally badass. Sexiest guy I have ever seen-and that included books, movies and TV, foreign and domestic. 


Not to mention, she is related to royalty and it seems bodyguards watch over royalty, but are not supposed to become involved with them. 


Logan is attracted to Ellie-how could he not be, but he is guy with a long history of career criminals for relatives and he knows his place. As much as he might want that place to be next to Ellie in her bed, it’s not meant to be. 


Logan may be resisting temptation but Ellie is equally determined that Logan will be hers. But how could things work between them? 


“But, Ellie, if you think things will be easy now, that the two of you will simply ride off into the sunset unaffected by the realities of your situation…you should prepare yourself to be mistaken.”


Royally Endowed is funny, very sexy and quite intriguing. Who is the cat and who is the mouse? Once you finally have what you dreamed of, can you keep it? 


“Happy endings are for all of us.”

Release Blitz: At Her Own Risk by Rachael Duncan

Title: At Her Own Risk
Author: Rachael Duncan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release: August 14, 2017


 



Sex.

That’s all it was supposed to be. No strings attached, no feelings, no heartache. 

But if I thought Sean Riley would be content having only parts of me, I was dead wrong. His persistence wore me down and I found myself in the one situation I was trying to avoid. 

Little does he know a life with me will lead to nothing but disappointment and heartbreak. He’s a good man and deserves everything I can’t give him. Not because I don’t want to, but because I’m unable. 

Pushing him away in the beginning was to protect me, now I’m trying to protect him as I gear up for the fight of my life. 

A fight I could lose. 

Getting into a relationship was my risk, but as things get worse, I’m not the only one who will have something to lose. 

I just hope it’s worth it.




4 stars
Review by Trinette Dungee

I don’t intend to break your heart, but you forget your feelings aren’t the only ones on the line
Holy Hell, damn that Sean Riley, he just goes straight to my heart. 
Okay so reading the synopsis I figured this was going to be a one sided story, boy was I WRONG! This was a dual POV and let me tell you. Sean’s POV totally sucked me in. 
Paige Stewart and Sean Riley have been dancing around each other for a few years. Sean’s brother dated and is now married to one of Paige’s best friends which means they are constantly around each other. They sexual tension between the two is crazy and Sean has been chasing Paige since the day he met her. Finally Paige gives in and the two decide on a “friends with benefits” type of thing. 
What got me with this book was Sean; this guy wanted this woman, he pursued her relentlessly, he cared about her, he LOVED her. There wasn’t a time in this book where he didn’t make his true feelings known. While it may make him sound a little like a wuss, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m so sick of reading books where the guy wants the girl but he tries to hold back. Sean said “to hell with all of that.” This guy put his heart on the line and never took it off. Of course a curve ball is thrown at the two of them, and it comes in the form of Cancer. Sean is not only fighting Paige to make her see how much he wants her but now he’s fighting her to allow him to fight with her. 
This book was sweet, funny, and emotional. I’ll admit there was more than one occasion when I had to blink back tears. I don’t typically appreciate it when book makes me want to shed a tear but this one I didn’t mind. 
I don’t know that I would say this is a series but there is at least one other book (featuring Sean’s brother and his now wife); but I don’t think you need to read that book to appreciate or follow this one...at least I didn’t. I do intend to go back and read that one though (Calculated Risk). The whole Charlotte and Scarlett (two of Paige’s friends) confused me a bit (I couldn’t seem to keep them straight) but that wasn’t a major factor. 

Overall, a good read that I finished in one day. 




“Come back to me,” I finally plead.
She looks into my eyes and there’s so much pain I can’t stand it. “I don’t know how.” Her voice is strained as she tries to hold back the tears.
“Let me help you.” I cup her face and she leans into it.
“I just want to stop feeling this way and I can’t.” A tear falls down her cheek.
“Like what?”
She pauses and says, “Empty.”

Excerpt


I sit outside on a bench, looking at the scuffs on the tips of my black leather shoes. The bottoms are worn from wearing them while riding my bike. It was the only sign that set me apart from the other rich kids where I grew up. Other than Cruise, no one rode motorcycles or had dealt with anything worse than getting a warning after getting busted for smoking, skipping school, sneaking out, smoking weed, getting drunk, or driving over the speed limit. The list could go on.
I have a car. I just don’t drive it much, preferring the freedom I feel on my bike. It wasn’t just my clothes or the bike that set me a part. None of them had lived, breathed, existed simply because their soul mate did. Not even now.
From the moment I saw her, I knew Sara Jane was it for me, an angel in a Catholic school uniform, eating a candy bar. She couldn’t have been more innocent. Except she was. The girl had barely been kissed. It’s like she had been waiting to meet me, as if she had saved herself for me. How a girl who looked that good and smelled even sweeter remained untouched for so long was beyond me.
I would have loved her no matter what. She could have been a prostitute, and I would have only seen her halo. I was a ship navigating a stormy sea, but she called me to her lighthouse, a beacon shining in the dark. It was never about her innocence, or the sins I had inherited. The day I met Sara Jane was about two lives that weren’t meant for only one lifetime, but destined to be together forever.
Maybe that’s what had given me the confidence to break away from the kids I grew up with. I knew I was meant for something bigger than a life of partying and getting high socially.
I was meant for Sara Jane, and she for me.

Blog Tour: Twisted Twosome by Meghan Quinn

Racer McKay is a broody bastard.

From the moment I met him, he’s been rude, irritable, and unbearable. 

A contractor working to remodel my parents pool house for extra cash, he stomps around in those clunky construction boots with his tool belt wrapped around his narrow waist, and a chip on his shoulder.

Racer McKay is also infuriatingly . . . sexy as hell. I want to take that pencil tucked behind his ear, and draw lazy lines slowly up and down his body all the while wanting to strangle him at the same time.

We try to stay out of each other’s way . . . that is until I have no other option but to ask for his help.

But what I don’t realize is he needs me just as much as I need him. I have money he’s desperate for, and he holds the key to making my dreams come true.

Our pranks turn from sarcastic banter, to sexual tension and lust-filled glances. Bickering matches quickly morph into slow burn moments. We’re hot, we’re cold. We push and pull. I need him, I don’t want him. We’re on the verge of combusting with an agreement dangling dangerously between us. Neither one of us can afford to lose one another and yet, we’re finding it quite hard to decipher the line that rests between love and hate.

*Twisted Twosome is a stand alone romantic comedy.











Excerpt:


“Thanks for lunch, I haven’t had a fine peanut butter and jelly sandwich in quite some time.” Racer takes a giant bite from one of three sandwiches I made him. The man can eat; I just want to know where he puts it all. “What is this, crunchy peanut butter?” He looks over the sandwich, studying it intently. 

“Yes, it’s crunchy with mixed berry jam.”

He nods and takes another bite. He talks with his mouth full, which for some weird reason makes him oddly adorable. “Nice touch, George. The peanuts add a nice texture.”

“Are you going all food critic on my PB and J skills right now?”

Lifting his shirt, he dabs away some of the sweat that’s collecting on his forehead, beneath his backward hat. His abs flex with the movement, drawing my attention. Each divot calling out to me to touch, to examine . . . to lick. 

“I think every human should be judged on their PB and J skills.”

I pull my eyes away from his stomach just in time not to get caught staring. “Why do you think that?”

“Because,” he takes another bite, “I think building a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is in everyone’s repertoire, but only the truly skilled know how to make a proper one. And I want to be friends with the truly skilled.”

“Is that so?” I take a drink of my green tea and study him for a second, watching the way the muscles in his jaw move with each bite and swallow. It’s sexy. 

His neck is sexy? Is that possible? 

“So where do I land on your scale of sandwich artists?”

He smiles from my term, and I realize how much I adore his boyish charm. Pulling his eyes away from me, he examines one of the sandwiches I made him and starts assessing it. “Good ratio of peanut butter to jelly. Nice choice in bread. The crunch you added has been a pleasant surprise, and the mixed berry jam is fucking delightful.” I giggle from his girly term. “But . . .” 

I perk up; there’s a but? “But what?”

He quirks his mouth to the side, almost to say, “Sorry, but you’re not quite perfect.” “The bread, it should have been toasted. Toasting it would have taken you to boss level when it comes to the PB and J.”

“Toasting it?”

He nods and takes another bite. “When you don’t toast a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, the peanut butter and bread form a paste on the roof of your mouth. Even though it tastes good, it can get quite irritating.”

“But I didn’t have a toaster.”

“Rookie mistake.”

“Well, If I knew I was going to be critiqued, I would have sprung for bacon.”

He pauses mid bite and stares at me over his sandwich. “You’re a beast for bringing up the option.”

I polish off the rest of my sandwich and wipe my fingers. “Well, maybe next time you’ll communicate expectations better. I’m not a mind reader, Racer. Frankly, the fact I didn’t make boss level is on you, not me.”

I stand and gather my trash as he stares me down. “Don’t you turn this on me. You didn’t have a toaster. The toaster is what’s key. This is on you, Georgie. This is on you!” he calls out as I make my way to the back, laughing to myself the entire time. 



About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if "It's Raining Men" starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing... enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
