Title: Until Harry
Author: L.A. Casey
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, New Adult
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Release Date: July 19

Until Harry

Like nothing you have ever read from L.A. Casey before, a story of loss, love, and finding yourself in the darkest of times.

Synopsis

He was my best friend, my best not-really-big-brother and my best protector. He was my best everything. He was mine.

Coming home is hard for Lane. Hard because Harry, her beloved uncle, has died suddenly, but also because of him. Kale.

Kale Hunt has been her best friend since childhood. But it was never that simple. He was Lane’s reason for leaving home and moving to New York. Seeing him with someone else, in love with someone else, shouldn’t have hurt. But it did. It really, really did. So she upped sticks and left, started a new life and cut herself off from her past.

But now she’s back and all the feelings are right there. As if she had never left.

Emotions are running high for everyone, and tragedy has a funny way of bringing people together. But is Lane reading the signs right? Are they still just friends, or is there something more?

Excerpt

I felt my eyes widen as his voice encircled me like a warm blanket. No matter how many years went by, I would know his voice even if it were a whisper. I slowly turned, but I froze when I saw him standing in the doorway of the parlour, leaning against the panel with his hands jammed into the front pockets of his jeans.

His eyes, my mind whispered. What’s wrong with his eyes?

There were many things that I loved about the man before me, but his eyes were by far my favourite. They were the first things I looked at whenever I saw him. There was always a mischievous glint in his whisky-coloured eyes that only I could see because I looked hard enough. It was a glint that told me his soul was alive and thriving, but what I saw now caused me to shiver.

There was no glint, gleam or light of any sort in his eyes. They were dead and reflected the clouded grey skies that often hung over York. They were as captivating as they were haunting.

Even though I moved thousands of miles away to escape him, every day for the past six years I woke up seeing those hazel eyes and fell asleep hearing that soothing voice. I couldn’t shake him whether I was half a world away or in the next room.

I lived and breathed Kale Hunt, and it was killing me.

“Kale,” I managed to whisper as I stared at the first man to ever break my heart.

He gazed at me then with no trace of emotion he robotically blinked and nodded in greeting. “Welcome home, Laney Baby.”

Author: T.L. Smith

Published: January 29, 2016
I am loyal, but I will betray you. 

I am strong, but I have scars. 

I am an angel, but the devil. 

I met her when I was sixteen and she was a breath of fresh air. She swooped in, making me smile. But then she left, taking my next breath with her. 

Her smile could light up a room, making my black heart pitter patter. 

I found her again ten years later, with a syringe in her arm. 

Blood coming from between her legs. 

She was broken and I was glad she was broken. She wouldn’t think less of me and my damaged ways.

CLICK HERE to read a SNEAK PEAK of Black!

 

“Yet again, TL Smith has produced a novel so intense, raw, gritty, confronting and dark that we were held captive from beginning to end. A highly emotional read we didn’t know weather to laugh, cry or just simply hold our breath. And the damn ending…….All we can say is……We don’t even know what to say it left us speechless……TL again you have completely flawed us with your uniqueness and ability to draw out so many emotions within ourselves in this amazing novel. We absolutely loved it and cannot wait for more!!” – Bloggers From Down Under 


“Black is my favorite so far from TL! I was addicted right from the start, definitely worth taking a chance on Black, its gut wrenching beautiful!!” – Author Lila Rose, USA best seller.

A wound to the heart, a hole so deep.

Can it be fixed?

Or simply replaced?

People lie. Those closest to me, tell the most lies.

Do they not know who I am? What I’m capable of?

Sometimes I wonder if they do. Because when I unravel their lies, they will be delivered to the hell I once visited. And it won’t be pleasant.

Banger’s Ride by Chiah Wilder

Title: Banger’s Ride
Series: Insurgents MC #5
Author: Chiah Wilder
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: Summer 2016

 

Banger, President of the Insurgents MC, isn’t looking for a woman to replace his beloved wife. Ever since she died, he’s closed his heart to loving again. He satisfies his carnal pleasure with the club girls and hoodrats. It’s safer that way. 

 


The President of the national club may have sparkling blue eyes and an infectious smile, but make no mistake, if someone crosses him or his club, he’d slit their throat in a heartbeat.

Set in his ways, tough, tattooed, and a no BS-type of man, Banger is doing just fine until he meets the sassy, curly-haired, single mom who can cook the best fried chicken he’s ever tasted. 

He can’t get enough of her cooking…or her. 

For the first time since he’s been widowed, he wants a woman in his life warming his bed. 

And the no-nonsense woman, who has a body made for sinning, has turned his world upside down.

Belle Dermot is a widow with two kids whose husband left her penniless. Wanting a fresh start, she moves to Pinewood Springs and takes a job at the local diner cooking tasty, home-cooked meals.

After finding out her husband was a cheating louse, the last thing she wants is another man in her life. She has her hands full with a rebellious teenage daughter, paying the bills, and fending off nasty accusations that she poisoned her husband.

Then she meets Banger, the muscular, handsome, and rugged biker who comes crashing into her life. 

If only he wasn’t so nice to her and didn’t get her all hot and bothered. And why did he have to be so damn good in bed?

As hard as she tries to push him away, he keeps slipping back into her life, helping her with her problems. And Banger’s not the type to let go once he decides on something. And he’s decided to make Belle his. Now, he just needs her to agree to be his woman…

The Insurgents MC series are standalone romance novels. This is Banger and Belle’s love story. This book contains violence, sexual assault (not graphic), strong language, and steamy/graphic sexual scenes. It describes the life and actions of an outlaw motorcycle club. If any of these issues offend you, please do not read the book. HEA. No cliffhangers! The book is intended for readers over the age of 18.
 
Chiah Wilder is the author of Hawk’s Property, the first book in the Insurgents MC Series. It is a full-length standalone novel. Its release date is set for October 27, 2015.


Always a lover of books, she began writing at a young age and continued through college with collections of short stories. Figuring she had to grow up and get a “real” job, her writing was placed on the back burner. 

Her love of reading has always be center front in her life. Chiah’s love of bad boys both in and out of fiction has inspired her Insurgents series. She loves an alpha male whose softer side is brought out by a passionate, spirited woman. In fiction, there are no rules or boundaries, and fantasies can go as far as the characters want to take them. Steamy, biker romances with rough, sexy bad boys are her guilty pleasure along with brownies, cheddar cheese, and movie marathons. 

Returning to writing has been a dream come true. Writing and publishing Hawk’s Property has been an amazing journey, and she is happy to share the Insurgents family with her readers. She is busy writing her next book in the series.

Chiah would love to hear from you. You can contact her at: chiahwilder@gmail.com

GRIT, A Spartan Riders novel- J.C Valentine

GRIT Reveal Banner

GRIT
by: J.C. Valentine
Spartan Riders #1
Publication Date: April 19, 2016
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance, MC Romance

GRIT Cover

#PREORDER: B&N | iTunes

Synopsis: Gabby Morgan isn’t looking for love. Not even a little romance. Following a rocky past that she’d just as soon forget, she’s determined to focus on the future. One that most certainly doesn’t involve the tough-as-nails, short-on-words, hot-as-hell biker…or his kid.

Blake Mahone may not be done with women, but he’s finished with relationships. Then Gabby Morgan enters the picture. She’s flawless, refined, and as his kid’s teacher, way out of his league. She acts like she hates him, but her eyes tell a different story. Before he knows it, Blake finds himself hot for teacher, and he’s more than ready to learn all her secrets. Now all he has to do is convince her to give him a shot…without getting them both killed in the process.

EXCERPT

“What are you doing?” she asked, her eyes wide on his.

“Getting comfortable. Now, what did you want to talk about?”

“We’re getting into this already?”

“I like to have things out on the table. It makes moving forward a helluva lot easier. So do you want to start, or should I?”

Well, with him looming over her like he was, she was disinclined to say much of anything really. Her stomach was twisting with so many nerves, she was lightheaded. The last time anyone had made her feel anything like it, she was in the tenth grade and facing down a yearlong crush.

That was a tickle compared to what Blake made her feel.

Taking her silence as answer, Blake jumped right in. “Okay, my reason for being here then.” He turned to face her, his jacket creaking as he stretched his arm across the back of the sofa. “I did some thinking, and I was wrong. I like having a woman in my bed more than a night. Hell, I like having a woman in my bed, period. And it’s been a while since that happened.”

A thrill bubbled in her chest as Gabby took this in. “Are you saying you changed your mind?”

“About you being in my bed? Absolutely.”

“I don’t know what to say. What changed your mind?”

A dark smile played about his lips and his hand came up to play with her hair. “That kiss. I haven’t gotten a single good night’s sleep since. It’s all I think about.”

“Me too,” she confessed.

“Good, then we’re in agreement?”

“Ah…about what, exactly.”

“About you being in my bed. Not every night of course. And when I say you’re in my bed, I mean my bed, Gabby, no one else’s. I don’t share.”

“Of course not,” she said automatically, then frowned. “I haven’t even agreed to anything yet, and you’re talking like it’s a done deal.”

Moving closer, Blake slipped his fingers into her hair, cupping the back of her head and demanding her undivided attention. “You’ve been thinking about me. About our kiss.”

Her tongue dragged over her bottom lip in answer, and his gaze latched onto the movement.

“I assume you want more?”

She nodded, her answer coming in the form of a rapidly increasing heart rate and the inability to breathe without opening her mouth. Which only invited his delectable mouth closer.

“Because I want more, and, Gabby?”

“Hmmm?”

He leaned in, his mouth hovering over hers. “I get what I want. Always.”

An invitation to his bed and an excuse to touch and be touched by him any time she wanted? Who was she to argue?

Delicate Love by Josephine Brierley

Author: Josephine Brierley

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: 5 February

Delicate Love cover

DL Blurb

Life has dealt some heavy blows to Mackenzie Tillar. Bullied as a child, and no one to turn to, the one person, who was meant to protect her, to raise her, and surround her with unconditional love, had let her down. Kenzie learnt to deal with life in her own promiscuous way. Until that one fateful night when she met Sam, now she was contemplating breaking the very rules she had instigated.

For Samuel Edwards, being orphaned at a very young age meant that he found his own way in life. He lives it as he pleases, no room for relationships, no belief in love. It was never a part of his life. He’d never craved it, and never missed it. Until one night when he meets his match with Kenzie, she has the same rules, same fears.

They are both void of love, both not even searching for anything else. Fate brings them together, and thirty-six questions ignite a spark in them both. Could thirty-six questions lead to love? It was an experiment worth exploring.

Now they are playing a game, a game that suggests more, but is it more than they have bargained for?

** This book is Part 1 in a series, but is a stand-alone. There is no cliffhanger.

**This book contains some sexual content and disturbing situations. Over 18 years

DL Review

When I started the book, I was confused because it started out in a way that made me think it was a nonfiction self-help marriage relationship book. Once it started with the chapters, I quickly became engrossed and couldn’t stop. I really liked the way each point of view was separated by headings.
Why can’t Sam be real? I just love a man that knows what he wants and is willing to not only fight his demons but hers as well.
I loved the way Mackenzie and Sam used the questions to learn about each other and broke down each other’s barriers. I loved how they each learned about themselves and was able to come to terms with their pasts and grieve for what could’ve been but realizing at the same time they would not have been as strong as they were without the experiences they had. Strong 4 1/2 stars!
Thank you, Author Josephine Brierley and LLEP Book Blog & Promotions Group for allowing me the opportunity to read this in exchange for my honest review.

My most favorite quote in the entire book is 

It takes courage to love and to be loved. But as it takes hold, you realise that the love given to you is an amazing sacrifice, to love someone unconditionally, to be there in whatever terms are set, good, bad, or indifferent. To know their quirks, likes, and dislikes, to finish each other’s sentences, or phoning each other at the same time. Compromising, agreeing, planning. Knowing whatever life throws your way, that person is a lynchpin. They are the constant in your life, and you are the constant in theirs. That’s what she is. She is my person.

Strong 4 1/2 stars!

JoBrierleyBio

Josephine (Jo) is that person that watches the world turn, studying the characters that exist in life each day, finding different personalities, traits and attributes that can be worked into the stories that flow into her head.

She loves the escapism of writing, finding the time to create new characters whenever she can. With the support and encouragement of her husband, Jo has completed her second novel.

Delicate Love is an adult contemporary romance, with just a touch of anguish. Its real life, mixed with angst and romance. The story revolves around 36 questions that were originally written as an experiment by Arthur Aron, 41 years ago. His aim at the time was to have a couple fall in love within his laboratory, to prove that intimacy could be encouraged. The laboratory part sounds romantic doesn’t it?

Chasing Butterflies was Jo’s debut novel, and is a story she decided she wanted to tell after her own experience with breast cancer. In July 2012, Jo decided that a Bilateral Mastectomy was the best option for her after being diagnosed. Thankfully she was given the all clear after her surgery. It is a story based loosely on her own breast cancer journey, a story of a young woman who faces decisions that no one should have to and finds love along the way.

Jo lives on the Gold Coast, Australia, with her husband Rob, and pet dog Paris. Together they love entertaining, good times with friends and enjoying life.
