Release Blitz and Book Review: GLASS SECRETS by A.M. Kusi


Release Date: September 3

She guards her past. His heart is off limits. Can they break the walls between them and build the love they crave?

Mia Garcia is tired of running from her past. So with a new home offering small-town charm and a fresh start, she’s ready to leave her history behind and open the yoga business of her dreams.

But after an infuriating encounter with her rude-yet-so-sexy neighbor, she can’t decide if she should be angry… or aroused.

Andre Stone knows better than to fall for a pretty face. After being burned one too many times, the self-reliant builder has sworn off romantic entanglements. But when he’s hired to construct a
studio for the feisty yogi next door, he’s tempted to trade solitude for their red-hot attraction.

With her secrets tearing at her, Mia struggles to keep her growing feelings for the handsome contractor at bay. And as Andre opens up, he senses whatever she is holding back could demolish all his hopes.

Will they let their walls divide them or build a pathway to passion?

Glass Secrets is the steamy second standalone novel in the Shattered Cove romance series. If you like spirited characters, enemies-to-lovers, and couples who find hope after trauma, then you’ll adore A. M. Kusi’s sizzling tale.

“It’s raw, it’s real & it’s a little raunchy & hot as hell!!! Once you read that first chapter I guarantee you won’t be able to put it down till you’re done!!” – Goodreads review

Blurb:
When offered the keys to the kingdom, I all but pissed on the throne.
I didn’t need the figurative crown to become the king, and I sure as hell didn’t want anything more to do with the little queen.
When the power started to shift and lives were being torn apart, justice needed to be served.
Who better to serve it up … than me?

EXCERPT:
“Next question: who’s the asshole following me around, telling you what I’m up to when we’re not together?”

She lifts her nose in the air and walks past me.

“Goddammit, this shit’s important,” I snap as she hurries to the door and opens it.

She slips out into the foyer, and I slow the fuck down because, as I just lit into her about showing a united front, I need to do the same, no matter how fucking hard it is.

I catch up to her and grab her paw. She looks at me.

“I wasn’t done with you in there.”

She leans against me, grabs the back of my head, and pulls it down to whisper in my ear, “You.”

I pull back and lock eyes with her. “The asshole following me around is me?”

When I feel her slide her paw into my jeans pocket, I smile for show and ask, “What the fuck are you doing?”

She laughs and says loud enough for those around us to hear, “Oh, my bad, is that not your phone?”

I play along and tell her, “A little to the left.”

She pulls my phone out, turns, and leans against me. “Take a selfie with me?”

I whisper in her ear, “You’re fucking pushing it a bit here, huh?”

“Smile, JT.”

I look up, and she takes a picture. Then she opens up the messenger app and sends it to herself before turning and putting the phone back in my pocket, making a big damn show of it, too. All I can do is stand here, telling my cock not to feed into her bullshit.

I wrap my arm around her waist and pull her tightly against me, hoping to still her little fucking paw. “A little clarification and a little less cock teasing.”

She pulls her paw out of my pocket and reaches up, placing both paws on my neck, and begins running them up and down my neck. “You shared your location with me.”

“The hell I—” I stop and narrow my eyes at her at the realization that she just opened my phone without asking for my password.

“United front, JT. Smile in place and present.” She pops a quick kiss to my cheek then turns and walks away.

I pull my phone out and check my settings. Along with my entire crew, I’m now sharing my location with her.

When I look up at her, she looks over her shoulder, smirking at me.

Well played, Queenie, well played.

5 STAR Review

If there was one Steel book I wanted above all books, it was this one. I needed Justice Steel like I needed my next breath. I’ve never hidden the fact I love Cyrus Steel. Now it’s time to fall in love with his son and fall is exactly what I did. Justice Steel loves his family. He’s loyal as they come, maybe more so than the rest of the Crew. But there’s another side to Justice. One that is brutal, honest, angry. And to be honest with the things that come to light as this story progresses, Justice has every right to be the way he is. I will say, I was a little “upset” with Justice and his behavior at times. Cyrus and Tara would never allow Justice to disrespect someone so blatantly, especially a woman. But then again, Justice had his reasons for being the way he was.

As this story developed so many things came to light. I understood Gabrielle more. It became clear why she was the way she was. Clarity is an amazing thing. And MJ kept us asking so many questions over the last couple of books. But those things become clear.

I love MJ. You all know that. This book was so much more than I could have asked for. For me, I felt this book in my soul. I don’t know if it’s because I love Justice so much, or if because Cyrus has always been mine. Or maybe because I love MJ and how with each new book, she takes us on a new adventure and keeps me wanting more. We have more of the “Crew” to come, but I think I’ve found my man in this generation. Forever Steel!

RELEASE BLITZ and BOOK REVIEW: Penthouse Prince by Kendall Ryan

Penthouse Prince

By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: September 1, 2020

About the Book

Lexington Dane was my brother’s best friend growing up.

We did everything together.

He taught me how to throw a punch, how to change a tire…and he taught me how to kiss. I fell hard and fast, and gave him all my firsts.

I promised I’d wait for him…

But I’m done waiting, because he went off to college and never came back. He took his fancy business degree and moved to New York City, where he promptly became a real estate mogul—turning every penthouse and apartment project he touched into gold.

It’s been ten years, and now he’s back and needs a favor…someone to watch his little girl. That’s right, the cocky penthouse prince and heartbreaker extraordinaire Lexington is back with an adorable two-year-old daughter. Guess who he wants to watch her?

I’ve never been able to say no to him. I might agree to be the nanny for his precious little angel, but there’s no way in hell I’m falling for her hot-as-sin daddy.

Release Blitz and Book Review: ONLY ONE KISS by Natasha Madison

Release Date: September 1

From USA Bestseller Natasha Madison comes a brand new Hockey series The Only One.

Ralph 
Being traded to Dallas was a dream come true. I had everything I wanted, my game had never been better, and my wife was due to have our baby any day now.

What could go wrong?
Everything.

I was now raising our baby on my own. After hockey practice and games, I didn’t have time to sleep, let alone make sure my social media was up to par.

I never thought I’d get a second chance at love.

Candace 
When my hotshot brother was drafted in the NHL, he didn’t have time to do his social media, so I took over for him. Little did I know it would become my career.

My plate was full with over fifty NHL players, and I wasn’t taking on any new clients.

Yet when he showed up on my doorstep with the cutest little girl in the whole world, I couldn’t say no.

I was just helping, but it turned into more than that. He’s the man I’ve been waiting for.

All it takes is one touch, one night, one chance, and only one kiss.

Meet Natasha Madison 


When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. 

You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. 

It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Author Bio


K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.

They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women they love.
If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.

DMW - BT banner.jpg

Gruff but funny mechanic burned by love? Check. Guy who takes in orphaned kittens? Check. Hot as can be when he reluctantly falls head-over-heels? Check. My new book boyfriend? All the checks. Drive Me Wild is your summer must-read!” — Julia Kent, New York Times bestselling author

Drive Me Wild, an all-new flirty and heartwarming, opposites-attract romance by USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is available now!

DriveMeWild AMAZON (1)

When Blair Beaufort literally crashes into Bellamy Creek wearing a ball gown and a tiara, I should have towed her car, said goodnight, and sent her packing.

I’m a mechanic, not a hotel manager. I’ve got enough on my plate trying to keep my shop from going under, my overbearing mother off my back, and my baseball team in contention for the league championship. I don’t have time for a former debutante with zero street smarts and a cash flow problem, even if she is crazy beautiful.

Problem is, she’s stranded in my small town, and I’m hiding a protective streak underneath my grumpy exterior that runs deep. So I offer her a place to stay and keep my hands to myself.

For exactly one night.

If only she weren’t so gorgeous. So funny. So eager to please. She’s a disaster behind the wheel, but she drives me wild without even trying–at work, at home, in the back of my truck . . . I can’t get enough of the way she makes me feel.

But I know better than to think it can last. She wants a fairy tale, and I’m no prince.

So when it comes time for her to leave, there’s nothing I can do but let her go.

No matter how much it hurts to say goodbye.

Excerpt

Switching off the lights, I followed her out onto the sidewalk, locking the door behind us. “I need a quick shower and change of clothes. Want to come up with me?”

“Sure.”

I was following her up the stairs to my apartment, looking at her ass and wondering if she had sexual rules and how long it would take me to break them, when I realized she was still talking.

Shit, had she just asked me a question?

At the top of the stairs, she turned around and faced me. “So? Are you going to?”

I stood close. Ridiculously close. So close I could smell her—vanilla and lemon—and she could probably smell me—sweat and motor oil.

“Am I going to what?”I asked, looking at her lips.

She licked them. “Listen to me.”

“Oh. Yeah. I am.” But at that moment, I was pretty sure I was going to do something else to her too.

Suddenly she stepped back. “Good,”she said, her cheeks flushed pink. “On second thought, I think I’ll wait outside. I’m a little warm, and there’s a nice breeze.”

“Okay. I’ll be out in a few minutes.”

Nodding, she turned and descended the stairs so slowly, I wondered if she was dizzy. I watched her hand sliding along the wooden rail, thinking dirty thoughts.

On the landing, she pushed the door open and disappeared from view, but I still couldn’t breathe right.

What would she have done if I’d put my mouth on hers like I’d wanted to just now? Would she have kissed me back? Would she have welcomed my hands on her skin? Or would she have kneed me in the balls and told me to keep my filthy fingers to myself?

She wasn’t like any other girl I’d ever met, which was both the problem and the allure. I didn’t know how to read her.

But damn, I wanted her something fierce.

I took an ice cold shower, hoping it would help.

It didn’t.

Phoebe Mitchell has been outshone by someone else’s star for her entire life. Whether it was her troubled father or her spunky friend Vi, she’s never been able to burn brighter than the people around her.

After a near-fatal accident and change in family dynamics, she knows she’ll never be able to outshine her situation, either. The only person to ever see past her condition and make her feel like her life is more than a cautionary tale is her childhood best friend, Max. When new boy Graham enters her orbit, she finally begins to realize she might be able to glow a little brighter than the pressures around her.

But as their relationship develops, she begins to wonder, will she be able to hold onto the people that ground her, or will gravity lose its effect and send her into orbit?

About the Author:

What else was a book-loving teenage girl supposed to do while the nation was on lockdown, with no eight-hour school days, homework, clubs, or junior prom? To face the complete and utter uncertainty that is the year 2020, 16-year-old Ally B embarked on a journey in a world she could control. Between SAT prep, hours of schoolwork, and obsessively scouring the internet for international dishes to spend hours perfecting in her mother’s kitchen, ‘a world’ slowly began to form. She wrote obsessively for a month, nearly finishing the novel before realizing it wasn’t the story she wanted to tell. Only three characters and a street name made it through the journey of one document to the next, but the story she was telling was still one she wished she’d read long ago. Ally B resides in a small village near ‘Emerson’ with her mother and her dog, Theo. She’s very excited for the world to get back to normal so she can finally stop thinking about perfecting French recipes all of the time and making a mess of the kitchen—but until then—she suggests, wear a mask.

Blog Tour: Not My Romeo by Ilsa Madden-Mills

NMR - BT banner.jpg Is Jack my real Romeo…or will this gorgeous football player only break my heart?

Not My Romeo, the all-new swoon-worthy contemporary sports romance with heart and heat from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills is available now!

Madden-Mills - Not My Romeo - 29324 -CV-FT-V

We start off with a lie on Valentine’s Day.

My blind date isn’t the studious guy I expected: he’s a drop-dead gorgeous player with sinful amber eyes. Somehow we end up at his penthouse. I blame the gin and tonic.

The next day I learn he’s Jack Hawke—bad-boy professional quarterback with a murky past. The NDA he has me sign should be a warning that he isn’t a regular person. Please. I sign it Juliet Capulet, so goodbye, famous football player with abs of steel, and good luck tracking down this small-town librarian.

But Jack keeps showing up in places I least expect him. Just when I’m sure he’s gone, he waltzes into my community theater and wins the part of Romeo to my Juliet. How’s a plain, mostly innocent girl like me supposed to resist a man like him?

Is Jack my real Romeo…or will this gorgeous football player only break my heart?

Excerpt:

I pull my white cat-eye glasses out of my purse and slide them on for a better look. My heart flip-flops as butterflies take flight in my stomach. Oh heck no. That can’t be him. He’s . . . he’s . . . freaking gorgeous, and I don’t mean regular handsome but like a movie star: dark hair swept off his face, the strands wavy and unruly with copper highlights, soft and silky brushing against his cheeks, and too long for a newscaster, in my opinion—but what do I know? I don’t own a television.

He lifts his arm to shove his hair back, and my eyes pop at the tightly roped muscles of his forearm and biceps straining through the fabric, the impossibly broad shoulders.

Well, would you look at that.

And this has to be him, right?

I’m in the right restaurant. He’s alone. He’s wearing a blue shirt. He has dark hair. Odds point to yes. Usually the most simple explanation is exactly what it appears. Therefore, he must be my date.

The man in question turns to look out the window, tapping his fingers on the table impatiently, and I take in his profile. Long straight nose, full dark arching eyebrows, and a sharp, bladed jawline. Sensuous lips, the lower one decadently full. Almost wicked. He’s the kind of hot that draws your eyes over and over just to make sure it’s not a mirage. I knew guys like him at NYU—sexy, athletic gym types who played a sport. And those types never gave me a second look. I’d watch them work out while I fumbled my way around one of those god-awful butterfly machines, while beautiful, tall, svelte girls who weren’t sweating fawned over them, bringing them towels, water bottles, and sexy promises.

He takes a sip of an amber liquid, long tanned fingers grasping the fragile container as his eyes rove across the room. They prowl around the restaurant, as if he’s assessing every person in sight, and I feel the sizzle of him even from twenty feet away. Prickles of awareness skate down my spine. I’m the alpha, his body language yells. Come and challenge me.

His gaze drifts right over me without stopping.

Not surprised.

I duck back into the shadows.

Dang it. My hands clench. I wanted nice and nerdy, not this . . . sexy beast!

And judging by the scowl on his face, he’s grumpy. Life’s too short to be dour, Mister. And what is he annoyed about? I am here!

And he did see a picture of me. Topher said so.

Yeah, maybe he doesn’t really want to meet you.

Maybe he’s hoping you won’t show up.

I tap my foot. I should leave. Really.

The smells of Milano’s waft around me, spicy and tantalizing, and my stomach lets out an angry howl. I move from one foot to the next. Every place to eat between here and Daisy is going to be packed. I could always hit a drive-through on the way back home—but how pathetic is a Big Mac and fries on Valentine’s Day? Plus, I’ll have my entire nosy family to answer to tomorrow. They’ve built up this blind date so much: Oooooh, Elena has a date with a weatherman. Ask him if that’s a barometer in his pocket or if he’s just glad to see you.

I give myself a mental pep talk.

Grow some balls, Elena.

Sometimes you have to go out and take what you want.

So what if he’s hot enough to suck the dew off a rose.

You are hungry. Do it for the pasta.

He is your date. Go get ’em, girl.

I gather my resolve, point my little black pumps in his direction, and start marching.
