Blog Tour: Love Sincerely Yours by Meghan Quinn and Sara Ney





Dear Mister...**strike out** no, too formal.

Hey there sweet cheeks *strike out* no, too forward.



To whom it may concern,

Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.

I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?

So here I am, being honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.

I like you so much it’s clouding my judgment and making me do things I never would sober. Like write this letter.

I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. Your bark is worse then your bite, and you don’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.

For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.

And as long as we're being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you who’s boss.

Love,

Sincerely,

Yours.

I open the company messenger app on my phone and scroll through the executive names, knowing full well I’m about to break a policy. It’s the company’s phone, and the company’s app, and I’m about to use it for personal use. To flirt.

With my boss.

I close my eyes, find his name—next to it is a little, green dot, which means. . .

He’s on the app.

I’ve never talked to him live before so this is a huge step, but then again, it might be more fun to get his initial reactions to my comments.

Debating it for all but two seconds, I type out a message to him, making sure I’m signed on under my LSY persona.

HandsRomingMyBody: Hey you.

My text turns into a new message on the app and I wait on bated breath to see if he will respond. Nerves prickle up my spine, my fingers feeling numb, my mind playing mutiny with my heart just as little dots appear letting me know he’s typing.

Oh God, I don’t think I’ve been more excited.

EXCERPT



Prologue



Dave “Ridge” Carson



Somewhere between El Paso and Tucson, I found my soul under the bright stars of the Southwest.

Looking up, I drink her in. Meadow hates when I stare at her, but beauty like hers is rare. Her chin dips down, and she kisses my cheek, trailing more toward my ear where she whispers, “You feel so good inside me.”

“You have it all wrong. You make me feel good inside you.” I capture her lips on the edge of a laugh and kiss her while she continues to rock on top of my lap.

The sound of our bodies, our skin slick against each other becomes part of the hum of the desert outside the car. A night wind whistles through the cracked open window as the temperatures continue to fall well after sunset. We couldn’t wait—not for a hotel or a rest stop. When her hand dipped to my pants and she rubbed over me, causing my body to react, I pulled over.

Time is our enemy. There’s never enough of it when I’m with her. Every time I’m with her, I want to drain every ounce of life from the seconds, minutes, few short hours we get to be with each other.

My gaze rolls over the bottom of her jaw as her head tilts back, her mouth open, her bare breasts in front of me. I want to hold her still, hold her here, right the fuck here on top of me.

I run my hands over her body as I make love to the woman who’s become an addiction of mine. I breathe better, easier when I’m with her. The music of our bodies together is the only melody I hear. She’s become my friend.

My lover.

My muse.

Lifting up, she eases back down and then lifts again, gripping my shoulders and digging her nails into my skin. The pain is pleasure when doled out in provocative ways. “Dave,” she whispers on the end of a purr. No other name has been uttered in pure ecstasy like the way she says mine.

I hold her by the hips in the back seat of the SUV taking in the full view. “Hey,” I say.

She comes back to me, her eyes open, her soul exposed in such a vulnerable way, setting my heart on fire. “Hey.” She smiles, and I hold her still again, wanting this to last forever while equally wanting to rush the release.

A few sips of the wine we’ve been drinking straight from the bottle make her eyes sparkle. Caught between want and need, her smile is even until the corners, which curve up. It’s a smile that both hurts and heals my heart when it appears. “Don’t leave.”

Leaning down, she kisses my forehead, my nose, my mouth. With her lips against mine, she whispers, “I have to go.”

I’ve been careful about making plans with her for so long that the words feel foreign to me even now when this feels more intimate than any other time before. Every time with her is like this—better than the last. “I want you to stay.”

I fell for the free-spirited beauty long before we left Austin. But like all who are meant to soar, she can’t be caged by antiquated notions of romance. Meadow Fellowes has been clear about what we are or ever could be—nothing serious. But sometimes, when she looks at me, I see more hidden in the emerald pools of her eyes. I understand the yearning. She says, “My flight is tomorrow night.”

We’ve been so good at keeping it casual, but nothing serious means we’re fucking because we want to have sex. This isn’t fucking, just like we’re not casual, not to me. “Can you change it? Give us another week. Another day. Give us a chance.”

Leaning down, she kisses me and then sits back up. With her palms on my chest, she holds her smile. “I am. By leaving.” Her eyes close, and she starts moving on top of me again.

So I grip her a little tighter, holding her while I can. I meet every one of her pushes with a thrust of my own. As she comes back to me, the lids are half-mast, but her gaze is fixed on me. She whispers, “Tell me what you’re thinking.”

“I’m thinking how good this feels. Just us. Alone. In the desert, making love, having sex, fucking. All of it. All of you. You feel so good to me. Maybe we should be more to each other.”

“You’re more than you know,” she purrs softly and then leans back as if our connection is too much before she starts a slow gyrate. God, she feels amazing. A hand rubs over my chest, and this time, my eyes meet hers, coming back from the hazy edge of release. “We’re not those people.”

“What people are those?”

“The kind of people who make plans.”

Our bodies glide together as I say, “We’ve made plans before.”

“Spur-of-the-moment plans. Those don’t count.”

“They count.” They fucking count. I want to argue, but my mind clouds as our bodies move of their own volition. My eyes dip closed, and I swim in the moment, buried deep inside her.

We fall, tipping over that line that keeps us safe and the one that will end us—heart, body, and soul. It’s where I prefer to be with her. If only we could stay in this place longer than it takes for our breathing to recover.

My heart calms, and my breathing steadies. Meadow slides down with me still inside her and rests her head on my shoulder. Her fingers toy with the hairs on my chest before a kiss is placed on my neck. “Six months,” she says. “I’ll be back in six months.”

I tighten my arms around her. I don’t care that my body’s too big for this back seat or that we’re covered in sweat. All that matters is that I have her in my arms for a short time, and I intend to savor every second until she boards that plane.

Cover Reveal: The Long Road Home by Stacey Lynn

LRH-SBPRBANNER-CR.jpg
Long Road Home by Stacey Lynn

Publication Date: November 5th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Shanoff Designs
LongRoadHome-FINAL.jpg


I left home ten years ago, promising myself I’d never return to the place where I had never been accepted. I was despised and ridiculed for circumstances completely beyond my control.
But when my grandmother passes away, I’m forced to return to Kansas. I will have to face everyone who hated me. But they’re not who I’m most afraid of.
My biggest fear? Facing him.
Jordan Marx.
The boy I once loved more than life itself. The boy who defended me from them. The boy I’d disappeared on, leaving him nothing more than a horrible nasty lie and hastily scribbled note.
When Jordan finds out the secret I have carried for so long, I’m in for the battle of my life.
Or so I thought.
I might have wandered for years on a path riddled with thorns but with Jordan by my side, taking the long road home means more than reuniting with the only man I’ve ever loved. It might just mean finding myself, and the family I never thought I could ever have along the way.

BLURB
Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns.
It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybe linger on her face a second too long.
Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly leashed emotions. And neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face.
No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood, at all.
Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist.
The medicine man.
WARNING: This book discusses sensitive issues including but not limited to, depression and suicide.













4.5 Stars
Review by Jen Skewes

I really loved this book. It dealt with some very heavy topics that, in my opinion were addressed and handled in a way that felt genuine and real.  I had so many emotions while reading this book.  I love a taboo romance and Medicine Man certainly fit in this category. Not only is this a romance between a doctor and his patient, but there is a significant age difference as well. It is well written taboo romance that will make you feel!!

Willow is an 18 year old girl who when we first meet her is in a psychiatric hospital.  There was an incident a few weeks ago that not only scared her mother but also brought to her attention that she needs help.  Willow has been diagnosed in the past, and between what happened on her birthday and her diagnosis, her mother is scared for her daughter.  Imagine going through life feeling like your you have disappointed those that love you the most. That the person you are is not who you are supposed to be.  That you are not perfect and therefore feel guilty for not living up to their expectations. This is what Willow feels and she has a few weeks left to try to become the best version of herself.  She is counting down the days until she can return to the Outside.  She has so much that she has been holding in, so much that she has kept to herself.  At this point she just wants to be able to get through the remaining days and gohome.  But when she meets the new doctor, who she refers to as the ice man,  things change for her.  For one she is not supposed to feel anything for him, not even a little bit.  He is completely off limits as her doctor.  But he brings something out in her, makes her want to smile, to open up.  He changes so much for her.

Simon Blackwood is a brilliant man but he too has his own past.  He has been through so much pain, guilt and heartbreak, that he has kept all bottled up inside him.  When he meets his new patient there is something about her that intrigues him.  You can see how much he wants to help her.  But there is a little more to it.  She too brings something out in him.  He finds himself slowly opening up to her in ways that he has not done with anyone.  He is a very cold person who has a wall up.  But Willow Taylor manages to bring out more of who Simon really is.  She breaks down his walls, slowly melts the ice in his veins, and makes him feel.  No matter how wrong it is, everything about Willow feels right.  

I really loved this book and the emotions that it brought out.  As I mentioned earlier this is a taboo romance, mainly because Simon is her psychiatrist, but there is also an age difference.  I felt everything between the two of them.  Honestly for a good part of the book what these two had and felt, never felt anything but right to me.  But there were also moments, given her vulnerability and everything that had happened between the two of them, where I questioned if this was right, questioned my own insanity for even thinking that it was.  But the truth is, to me it just felt right between them.  I didn’t care about their doctor/patient relationship, their age difference, or the reasons why Willow was there in the first place. The way the author wrote this story, I felt the passion between the two of them.  He truly cared for her and in is own way he truly did want to help her and did.  They needed each other in their own way and while maybe they let things happen in the wrong way, it did not matter.  Simon and Willow had something that was special and meant to be.  

I loved everything about this book, including the supporting characters who I am hoping to see more from. A wonderful story!!




EXCERPT
“Do you have someone special, Dr. Blackwood?”
Someone you kiss? Someone you grab and pull into a dark alley and press against
walls?
I don’t say that but I’m definitely asking that.
It’s like he hears the unspoken questions because the heat of his body seems to have
doubled. Like his blood is rushing in his veins with an uncanny speed.
With flaring nostrils and a hard jaw, he answers, “No.”
“Why not?”
“Because I’m busy.”
I want to smile. Actually, I’ve never wanted to smile this hard. Ever. His answer calms
me but it also makes me restless to move closer to him. I want to trace my palm over the arch
of his chest and see if I got it right in my dreams.
But I don’t do any of those things. I don’t want him to take away this small concession
he’s given me.
Why is he even giving it to me? I’m not complaining. But still.
“Busy with patients?”
“Busy with my job. Yes,” he says, all professional-like.
That’s what he is. Professional and distant. Dedicated to his job and fixing people. If
Mass General let him go, then they are idiots.
I’m an idiot, too, in this moment.
Instead of backing off, I want to do something. Something that might crack his cool
façade. Maybe reaching up and messing up his no-nonsense hair.
What would he do? If I did that? If I grabbed his collar and pushed him against the wall?
And kissed him?
My eyes drop to his lips, his soft, soft lips. There’s a cleft in the middle of his lower lip. I
want to taste that cleft, dig my tongue in it, wet it, suck on it, bite it.
“So you don’t have fun at all?”
“No. I’m not a fun guy.”
I watch his lips form the words, and every syllable that comes out of his mouth makes
my need to shake him, kiss him, mess him up, stronger. Stronger and stronger.
The need is so consuming that I hardly notice when he puts his hand on my palm and
takes it off his body. It’s final and smooth, his action. Effortless. As though my touch barely
registered to him.
“But I think you have a point. It’s after hours and I should go… have fun rather than
spending my time with a patient.” He steps back then. “I’ll see you next week. Same time.”

Release Blitz: Talkin Trash by Lani Lynn Vale

Linc has two very important things on his mind—professional football and his motorcycle club.

What he does not have on his mind is the woman that drives him crazy and makes him want to do stupid things, like throw caution to the wind.

Nope, not Linc.

At least, that’s the lie he tells everyone.

In reality, every time Conleigh’s name is mentioned, he squirms.

She’s everything that he wants, wrapped up in a cute little package that is stamped ‘hands freakin’ off.’

She’s four years younger than him, in school to be a doctor, and thinks football is stupid.

Even more, Linc and Conleigh get along like oil and water.

There’s not a single second that they’re in each other’s presence that they’re not at each other’s throats.

But all it takes is hearing that she’s in trouble for Linc to drop every single thing—football and MC duties alike—and head to her side.

A side that he’ll remain at until they either kill each other, or finally give into the heat between them.

Either way you look at it, he’s well and truly screwed.

4.5 Stars
Review by Lisa Kane

Linc James seems to have it all-fame as a great quarterback, more money than he can spend and his brothers from the Bear Bottom MC's. But the one thing he doesn't have-Conleigh. From the time they met when she was sixteen and he was nineteen-he has wanted her. But both her stepfather and his father warned him off. So he has patiently waited for their time. She moved across the country for  nursing school, moved back and built a life for herself. They always kept in touch-texts, calls, casual get togethers.

There was one time when Conleigh thought that finally Linc would follow through and they would get together. But nope, he just wouldn't let himself pull the trigger. Linc's through waiting...

And now, eight years after meeting her, she was twenty-four and I was twenty-seven, and I'd had an epiphany. The time was now.  I was wasting it. 

Let me just say, it is impossible not to love Linc. This guy would give Conleigh the world. Seriously, he doesn't mess around, he's genuinely a good person and he's loyal to a fault. Conleigh, stop shutting him down!

I always made it a point to reply to him.
Always. 
But I was never overly friendly. I had to protect my heart, because I'd had it broken by one too many men over my life-my father, my first stepfather, and then finally, Linc. 


Once Linc makes up his mind there's no half measures for him. Only Conleigh isn't quite ready for the intensity that is all Lincoln James. Her life which seemed very uncomplicated is now anything but.

Linc's eyes were mischievous when he said," We have an open relationship. I don't mind when she sees other men as long as she comes home to me."


Oh boy...this one is trouble with a sense of humor!

But the path to their HEA is not going to be easy and complications from the MC are going to make things a little bumpy.

I felt like trash. Like a piece of well-sued, left-on-the-side-of-the-road trash. 
And dirty.
So goddamn dirty. 


But nothing worthwhile ever comes easy. When two people have loved each other most of their lives, they are meant to be together. Even if it seems like every obstacle in existence is against that.

"We've never been the problem; it's always been everyone else
