Fuck me recklessly
Kiss me harder.
Take me again and again…

He and I met under a cloud of clich├ęs:
Boy meets girl. Boy charms girl. Boy fucks girl.
Our story was supposed to end right after the orgasms, right after we went our separate ways.

But then we saw each other again…
And neither of us could walk away.

Our rules were simple.
Our passion was scandalous.
Our hearts were supposed to be safe…

But when you find something so all-consuming—something so intoxicating and inescapable, you’ll risk everything you’ve ever had, even if you’re destined to crash and burn.

This is us.
This is our messed up love.
This is turbulence.

BOOK BLURB:

Never stay in one place too long. That was my motto. After the accident, at the age of eighteen, I left my home in California to travel the world, seeking out new and adventurous wonders like my twin sister and I had planned to do since we were kids. Eight years later, I was forced to return home, to the one place that held the most traumatic memories for me. My money was running out and my brother, Adam, refused to send me more until we sat down and had a talk about me settling down in one place. That was when I met billionaire Alex Parker — an arrogant, uptight control freak who thought I would actually listen to him. Boy, did he have another thing coming. My name is Emerson James and this is my story.

She was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen. But she was mouthy and defiant, just like her brother warned me she was. She was a free spirit and very irresponsible with her life. Not my type at all. I only dated women of an upper class status — the ones who kept their mouths shut and were successful in their careers. I had everything life could offer and I was content. At least, I thought was, until Emerson James came into my life. She was getting ready to go off on another adventure and I was determined to get her to settle down in one place: California. My name is Alex Parker and this is my story.

EXCERPT REVEAL: Sins of Sevin by Penelope Ward




Sins of Sevin - Penelope Ward
Expected Publication: Sept. 21, 2015
Series: Standalone
Genre:New Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Erotic
Goodreads * Amazon * B&N

From the New York Times bestselling author of Stepbrother Dearest, comes a new forbidden STANDALONE romance.

What happens when the one you want is the only one you can’t have?

My name is Sevin.

Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin.

Elle was the girl who’d been carefully chosen for me.

After a long-distance courtship, I’d be moving into her family’s guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding.

Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage.

I’d accepted those rules and my fate.

Until I met the one I wanted to sin with.

That was when restraint became a problem…especially since "the one" wasn’t Elle.

It was her sister, Evangeline.

You know what they say about best laid plans.

My name is Sevin, and I have sinned.

***Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel. Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. Only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.
As he gulped down the water, I watched his Adam’s apple moving up and down. I used the opportunity to glance over his sweaty body up close. The top of his underwear was sticking out of his jeans. The smell of him was intoxicating, a mix of cut wood, sweat and cologne. I thought about our talk the other night, how he’d confessed his sexual history. As much as it disturbed me, knowing he’d used that body to give a woman pleasure made me weak with desire. I could only imagine what that would feel like with him.
Elle would find out.
I was still looking down at his abs when he said, “Thank you.” My eyes immediately shot up to meet his incendiary stare.
He’d caught me checking him out.  
“You’re welcome.”
His mouth curved into a smile as he handed me back the glass. “How have you been? I haven’t seen you much this week.”
“Yeah. I’ve been busy.”
“I have something for you,” he blurted out in a way that indicated he was anxiously waiting to say it.
“For me?”
“Yeah. Wait here, okay?”
Sevin ran over to where his truck was parked and grabbed something out of the open window.
He returned to where I was standing and handed me a CD.
“What is it?”
“If you like the Smiths, you’ll like some of the songs on here. I included a few Smiths songs—the ones from your favorite album, but there’s also The Lemonheads, The Pixies…and Pulp.”
“You made this?”
“Yeah. I made it for myself and burned you a copy.”
“Thanks.”
He looked me straight in the eyes and said, “Number ten is my favorite.” Then, he walked away.
I immediately took it back to my room and dusted off my old portable CD player.
Lying down on my bed with the sun streaming in, I drowned out the world and listened to every song. When it got to number ten, I paid special attention, knowing he’d specifically called that one out.
The name of the song was Like a Friend. I later found out it was by Pulp. With each lyric, my eyes became heavier until they welled up in tears. The words described to a tee exactly how I’d been feeling about him. The singer was shouting out all his feelings about his friend, that she was everything he shouldn’t want, everything that was bad for him, but yet he couldn’t stop wanting her. He’d take what he could get even if that just meant being friends. Every single line spoke to me. It was the first time I realized that maybe I wasn’t alone in my torment. This situation—whatever was happening between us—was taking a toll on him, too.

I must have listened to the song five times before I went over to the window and looked down at him. At one point, he finally looked up and noticed me. He squinted his eyes to see me through the glare of the sun. I still had my headphones on. He knew I had heard number ten. The look on his face when our eyes locked only confirmed that number ten wasn’t just a song. It was his way of speaking to me.

Book Review: Kendall Ryan - Screwed




Screwed - Kendall Ryan
Released: Sept. 15, 2015
Series:Standalone
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Erotic, Comedy
I have one rule: Don’t shit where you eat.

Several of the women in the condo complex I own would love some one-on-one playtime, and why wouldn’t they? I’m young, fit, attractive, and loaded. Not to mention I’m packing a sizable bulge below the belt. It’s a combination that drops panties on a regular basis.

Yay, me, right?

But my cock, troublemaker that he is, has been confined to my trousers by my business partner. A concession I agreed to, and one that’s never been hard to enforce until Emery moves in across the hall. She’s smart, young, determined, and sexy as hell. I want a taste. I won’t stop until I’m buried deep inside the succulent new-in-town brunette.

After being warned about my past, she does her best to steer clear, but I’m about to show her that underneath it all, I’m a guy with a heart of gold and a cock of steel.

My name is Hayden Oliver, and this is my story.

SCREWED is standalone romantic comedy by New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Kendall Ryan.


 photo picadillygray_zpsaa73e183.png

Kendall has done it again with her latest edition of stories that I now adore. It took me zero time to get started reading this gem once it hit my Kindle.

Not was Screwed entertaining, charming,and it had that irresistible flirtatious factor that gives you continuous butterflies.

One would think Hayden Oliver would already have his hands full being a property investor, but he also has playboy extraordinaire on his resume. After multiple complaints his business partner Hudson informs “don’t sh*t where you eat” meaning he’s no longer allowed to use his property as his personal black book. Being the friend he’s up for the challenge, but no sooner after he agrees walk in his newest tenet Emery Winters.

Emery has relocated from the Midwest to the West Coast to began an internship at a prestigious law firm. After a few failed attempts Emery has sworn to herself to stay clear relationships and devote her time to study for her bar exam. Already forewarned of Hayden’s history with women, which he does even attempt to deny, Emery makes up mind to keep him at arm's length.

What started out as an innocent friendship slowly morphed into something both tried desperately to avoid. While I doubt the attraction these two felt for each other could have been resisted for an extended amount of time, it was pleasant to watch them try.

Screwed is currently a stand alone that I can easily see becoming an amazing series. Hayden and Emery’s story is told with a dual POV, which had me entertained from beginning to end. The writing was amazing, my only complaint would be that I have a serious case of book hangover.

Summary from Goodreads:
Meet Morgan Dey, one of the top teen Reducers at The Body Institute.

Thanks to cutting-edge technology, Morgan can temporarily take over another girl’s body, get her in shape, and then return to her own body—leaving her client slimmer, more toned, and feeling great. Only there are a few catches…

For one, Morgan won’t remember what happens in her “Loaner” body. Once she’s done, she won’t recall walks with her new friend Matt, conversations with the super-cute Reducer she’s been text-flirting with, or the uneasy feeling she has that the director of The Body Institute is hiding something. Still, it’s all worth it in the name of science. Until the glitches start…

Suddenly, residual memories from her Loaner are cropping up in Morgan’s mind. She’s feeling less like herself and more like someone else. And when protests from an anti–Body Institute organization threaten her safety, she’ll have to decide if being a Reducer is worth the cost of her body and soul…









Top 10 Reasons to be a Loaner at THE BODY INSTITUTE

Welcome to The Body Institute. Where all your weight loss needs are met…

The Body Institute is an innovative weight loss clinic featured in the debut sci-fi novel of the same name. The Institute uses the amazing technology of Electromagnetic Resonance Transfer, or ERT, to download another person’s brainmap into your body while your own consciousness enjoys a brief “sleep.” This process enables you to experience the easiest weight loss in the world—because someone else will be losing weight FOR you!

Here are 10 very good reasons to sign up at the Institute as a Loaner client:

1. Because your tax fines aren’t going to go away by themselves! In the year 2033, once you’re more than 20 pounds over your ideal weight and have kept that weight on longer than 6 months, SERIOUS FINES start happening.

2. It totally solves the problem of those extra pounds. Are you still carrying around evidence of your holiday dinners months and months afterward? Want to look fit and toned, instead? No matter how much you weigh, The Body Institute can help.

3. Because it’s so ridiculously easy. As a Loaner client, you will lose weight fast, effectively, and safely. You simply check into the Institute, sign a contract, and have a backup brainmap generated. (A brainmap is the cluster of brainwaves that makes you uniquely YOU.) While a Reducer loses weight in your body, your mind is stored in a secure database. Let someone else do the months of sweating, jogging, and weight lifting.

4. Because the program is extremely flexible. Depending on how much weight you need to lose, the Institute offers 2-month, 3-month, 6-month, 9-month, and 12-month programs.

5. The Institute’s Reducers are carefully screened and selected. The Reducer who is downloaded into your body is health-conscious, driven, and motivated. A Reducer will work hard to lose your weight, and will not only tone your body’s muscles, but will also eliminate the junk food cravings from your body.

6. Your privacy is guaranteed. A Reducer who loses weight in your body will NOT remember their months on the job. This is because their brainmap with those weight loss memories is collected and discarded. Their original brainmap backups are restored to their own bodies when an assignment is finished.

7. Financial assistance is available to those with limited resources. Depending on your income, adjusted pay scales are offered. Under a certain base level, your weight loss is entirely FREE and provided by the government!

8. Because you want to improve your health. Be the healthiest you can be, by becoming a Loaner and losing those extra pounds that lead to greater risks of stroke, heart attacks, and diabetes.

9. You will impress friends and family. Want to look slim in your bridesmaid’s dress or best man’s tuxedo? Want to get even with your ex for dumping you? Want to fit into that bikini in the back of your dresser? Sign up with The Body Institute now!

10. After the Reducer completes your weight loss, your brainmap is safely returned to you. Your next waking moment will feature a newer, trimmer you. Out of consciousness one moment—slim and conscious the next. It couldn’t be easier!

What are you waiting for? The only thing you have to lose is your weight.



Top 10 Reasons to be a Reducer at THE BODY INSTITUTE

Welcome to The Body Institute. Where weight loss needs are met…
The Body Institute is an innovative weight loss clinic featured in the debut sci-fi novel of the same name. The Institute uses the amazing technology of Electromagnetic Resonance Transfer, or ERT, to download another person’s brainmap into another body to help that person lose weight. Reducers are the workers who are hired to lose weight for a Loaner client.

Could YOU be a Reducer?
Here are 10 very good reasons to sign up at the Institute as a Reducer:

1. You could help others become healthier. You will improve people’s lives by reducing their risks of dangerous diseases like stroke, heart attacks, and diabetes.

2. You could help others become happier. Poor health and being overweight often cause depression, low self-esteem, and unnecessary time spent at doctors’ offices and hospitals. You could improve people’s lives by making them more satisfied with their bodies and appearance.
3. You could help people eliminate their tax fines. In the year 2033, once people are more than 20 pounds over their ideal weight and have kept that weight on longer than 6 months, SERIOUS FINES start happening. Becoming a Reducer is a perfect way for you to help them solve that problem.
4. You like a challenge, and don’t give up easily. How many people can say they’ve LITERALLY walked in someone else’s shoes? Or actively helped people do something that has been too difficult for them to do themselves? A Reducer accomplishes this, and isn’t afraid to sweat and work hard.

5. You crave new situations and experiences. If this is your personality, sign up! Your body will be safely stored in suspended animation while your mind is placed in someone else’s body. You’ll be exploring frontiers not many people have tread before.

6. The scientific tech rocks!! ERT is cutting-edge, forward-thinking technology. Imagine, swapping the consciousness of one person with another person’s. You’d be a part of that procedure, and experience it firsthand.

7. You are health-conscious, driven, and motivated. You will work hard to lose your client’s weight, toning his/her muscles, and eliminating junk food cravings. You’ll be helping people improve their lives—talk about a rewarding and satisfying job!

8. The program is extremely flexible. Depending on how much weight your Loaner needs to lose, the Institute offers 2-month, 3-month, 6-month, 9-month, and 12-month programs. You can accept or reject any Reducer assignment offered to you, depending on what fits your schedule.

9. At the Clinic, everything is provided to assist you with your client’s optimal weight loss. The Institute’s Clinic is where most Reducers carry out their assignments. This building features comfortable single dorm rooms, a weigh-in center, swimming pool, high-tech resistance/weight machines, and a cafeteria serving nutritious and sensible meals. All at no charge to you!

10. Let’s face it. The pay is outrageously and awesomely high. Do you need a major stash of credits to attend the college or tech school of your choice? Are you trying to get out of debt or wanting to buy a new car? Well, look no further than your nearest Institute facility.

Join The Body Institute now—for a healthier future.

Release Day Blitz: The Foxglove Killings by Tara Kelly



The Foxglove Killings - Tara Kelly 
Released:Sept. 1, 2015 by Entangled Teen
Standalone
Genre:YA, Contemporary, Mystery,Thriller

Gramps always said that when the crickets were quiet, something bad was coming. And the crickets have been as silent as the dead. It started with the murdered deer in the playground with the unmistakable purple of a foxglove in its mouth. But in the dying boondock town of Emerald Cove, life goes on.

I work at Gramps's diner, and the cakes―the entitled rich kids who vacation here―make our lives hell. My best friend, Alex Pace, is the one person who gets me. Only Alex has changed. He's almost like a stranger now. I can't figure it out...or why I'm having distinctly more-than-friend feelings for him. Ones I shouldn't be having.

Then one of the cakes disappears.

When she turns up murdered, a foxglove in her mouth, a rumor goes around that Alex was the last person seen with her—and everyone but me believes it. Well, everyone except my worst enemy, Jenika Shaw. When Alex goes missing, it's up to us to prove his innocence and uncover the true killer. But the truth will shatter everything I've ever known about myself — and Alex.


 photo black_zps584f1581.png

Let’s be honest who doesn’t like a good mystery with a sprinkle of romance. That’s exactly what I got when I decided to pick up Tara Kelly’s The Foxglove Killings. Now I won’t stay that I was glued to my Nook until the last page, but my attention was kept in spurts. The story is heart racing and well writing and it does keep you guessing, right up until the last chapter.

Someone in Emerald Cove has mutilated a deer and put it on display. Not knowing if this was a one time incident has everyone in town on edge. Nova and her best friend, Alex have a few ideas of who it could be, mainly the “cakes”, which happen to be the rich kids they had problems with.I have to admit I had a few guesses out there myself. When the actual killer was revealed I was both surprised and disappointed. The reasoning made complete sense, but yet unsatisfying.

TFK is told solely from the main character Nova’s POV, her character was rather likable, but she also irritated me by being young and impulsive. Made me absolutely crazy. Her theories and emotions were all over the place. Not to mention she was kind of a crappy friend to Alex. The relationship felt one sided. Things became a tad awkward at times when new feelings that developed between Nova and Alex only complicating their friendship.

Overall The Foxglove Killings was an intense nail biting thriller that I truly enjoyed.

He stroked the nape of my neck, his fingers combing through my hair. My muscles relaxed, even with the stifling heat, but I fought the urge to press closer, to tilt my head up and face him. Everything I missed about him, every bit of anger rose up in my throat, forming a tight ball.
It was hard to breathe. But it was harder to let go.
