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.

Release Blitz: I Do(n't) by Leddy Harper





BLURB


I fell in love with Holden York when I was six years old.


Most of my youth came with spiral notebooks filled with doodles, wedding plans, and “Janelle York” looped in bubbly handwriting.



However, one night in Vegas changed everything.



I woke up to more than just a fantasy of my brother’s best friend.



Five years later, I'm standing on his doorstep confronting him about the secret he kept from me. 



If you think this is the story of how we rode off into the sunset together…


You’re so wrong.



But if you think this is the story of how Holden blackmailed me into living with him...


You couldn't be more right.

Blog Tour: Twisted Twosome by Meghan Quinn


We're celebrating the release of  TWISTED TWOSOME by Meghan Quinn!




TWISTED TWOSOME
NA Romantic Comedy

 Purchase: http://hyperurl.co/99udeh

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!

Review by Jen Skewes

Once again Leddy Harper has completely sucked me in to her world of new characters whom I fell for.  From beginning to end I was completely captured by the story, never wanting to let go or seeing it end.  All though it shouldn’t really surprise me that I loved this book.  After all Leddy Harper wrote it and she never disappoints.  I do think this is a little different from her other books.  She certainly made me feel, like she so expertly knows how to do but I think it was in a completely different way. 

Janelle is the youngest in her family, and growing up she always tried to tag along with her brother and his best friend Holden.  At a young age she fell for Holden.  At the age of eighteen, she woke up the morning after her brother’s wedding to find that her fantasies regarding Holden has finally come true.  Except she does not remember a thing.  Holden walks out of the hotel that day and everything that they shared the night before, the friendship they had for most of their life is completely forgotten.  

It is five years later and Holden and Janelle have not seen or talked to each other since the wedding.  They both avoided the other as best they could over the years.  Janelle went off to college, while Holden started his own business.  But Janelle is back.  She needs help with something and the only person that can take care of her current situation is Holden.  He agrees to help her, but under one condition, she lives with him for six months.  This is the part that I loved because Ms. Harper threw a little twist in there.  His reasons were nothing of what I thought they would be.  I am not going to tell you what they were but it was unexpected. And that is what made this story perfect.  It is the reason that I became completely frustrated with them, but also the reason why I loved Holden.  And it is simply because he cared.  

Holden and Janelle are two people that completely frustrated the hell out of me.  Now when I first met Holden, I loved him.  He was sweet and sexy and I just loved everything about him.  Janelle it took a little more time for me to warm up to her.  But as time went on they both said and did things that just made me want to shake the two of them and tell them to wake up!!!.  They were both so hell bent on denying their feelings that it drove me nuts, but in a good way of course.  They belonged together, they were meant to be together. I just needed them to be the ones to see it.



When you become so invested in two characters, to the point that you feel all of their emotions.  That they make you so frustrated because all you want is for them to be happy.  When twists come that make you curse the author because you, yourself are so unsure of what just happened, questioning if it was real or not.   When an author manages to suck you in from the very first page and has you smiling at the end, you know that is a fantastic book that is flawlessly written.  You know that the writing is amazing because you felt everything!!  Another job well done by Ms. Harper.

Blog Tour Blue Balls by RC Boldt



Title: Blue Balls 
Author: RC Boldt 
Genre: Romantic Comedy 
Release Date: August 7, 2017 
Cover Designer: Letitia Hasser at RBA Designs 



BLUE BALLS
Truth: A painful condition caused by a prolonged state of sexual arousal without release.
Myth: Only affects males.
SARAH
I’m beyond frustrated with the man who’s left me high and very far from dry. Multiple times. But, somehow, even though I’m not interested in a relationship, Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Handsome keeps me coming back for more—one crazy, sexual debacle after the next.
Come hell or high water, the stars will align, and the release will be out of this world.
JACK
I’m captivated with the woman who’s left me sixty-nine shades of blue, and she's only in this for one thing. The first time, I blew it—and not in the good way—but I’m going to ensure we finally see it through. I need to put an end to this “plague” of sexual calamities and prove to Sarah that we can have more.
It's time to grab the universe by the balls and show it who's boss.

Review by Lisa Kane

Sarah Matthews is ambitious and more than a little quirky. She’s a nurse who’s been studying to become a nurse anesthetist. She may be one smart cookie but she’s a bit of a commitment phobic. Her childhood; most especially her mom’s insecurities with men, molded Sarah into an independent woman who loves to have sex. But has no interest in a relationship. Only one that involves naughty bits having fun and walking away. 
Besides, I don’t do relationships; not only because of my childhood, but also because I’ve been far too busy.
When her best friend Maggie moved in Ry, she met Jack Westbrook. (If you haven’t read their story Clamjam-get on that!)  Ry’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, brilliant and has just come out of a causal relationship. 
I’ve known him for over a year now, and ever since the mutual acquaintance of our best friends thrust us together, I’ve wanted to include other types of thrusting in our equation.
Jack is finally going to make his move. He’s wanted Sarah since he first laid eyes on her but the timing never seemed right. But the stars are in alignment and it’s game on!
Panties have disintegrated. I repeat. Panties. Have. Disintegrated. 
But things like getting laid are so easy for these two. It seems every time they are about to get intimate with each other’s genitals, someone or something interrupts them. Hence, the title of the book-Blue Balls. 
Damn vagina. She’s such a traitor when it comes to Jack.
Blue Balls is full of chocolate candies wrapped in witty little notes, smile-invoking nicknames like “Sunshine” and odd comments which actually start to make sense. 
“Now tell me you don’t think there’s a chance Dave Matthews and Shakira could be the same person.”
Wait, what?
But there being together is not all fun and games. Sometimes couples aren’t in the same place at the same time. Sometimes one wants less or more than the other. Oh uh…cue the ominous music. 
I devoured this latest release from RC Boldt as quickly as I did Clamjam. It’s the right balance of angst and humor and lust!


I’d suffer blue balls my entire life if it means I get to spend each of those days with you.
