EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT ~Undone by R.E. Hunter~

Title: Unbroken
Author: R.E. Hunter
Series: Disclosure #2
Release Date: November 6, 2014

She was running toward her future. He was running from his past. When their worlds collided, nothing could prepare them for what was to come.

Reeling from Luke’s betrayal, Embry Jacobs is lost and looking for answers. His lies have ripped them apart, forcing her to question everything she thought she knew about the man she loves. But to give Luke another chance, she’ll have to forgive his lies and risk her already fragile heart.

Luke Brody’s past has finally caught up to him — in more ways than one. After losing the only woman he’s ever loved, he’ll do anything to get her back. But when he finally has the chance to make things right, unforeseen circumstances threaten to tear them apart once more.

When the truth comes out, will it set them free or break them both?
Exclusive Excerpt from Unbroken (Book 2 The Disclosure Series)

Everything he was looking for was there, in her eyes, a thousand words passing between them as they stood across from one another. His eyes swept over her, taking her in. She was fucking beautiful, her hair falling in loose waves over her shoulders, a tight sweater and jeans that could’ve been painted on, accentuating every soft curve.

His fingers burned to touch her, but he couldn’t ignore the sad look in her jade eyes, or the guilt that washed over him. He planted his feet firmly on the floor, fighting the urge to sweep her into his arms, hold her again. And then his world crashed and burned as Jeremy’s arm shot out, hooking around her waist and pulling her into the classroom. She turned, stealing a hopeless glance over her shoulder, then she was gone.

UNDONE (book #1)

Five years ago, Embry Jacobs ran...

She ran from a past that still hasn’t let her go, but her dream of becoming a lawyer is stronger than her fear of confronting that past. Embry’s sole focus is to get through law school—with the help of her best friend, Morgan—and make something of the broken girl she became. Not thinking about falling in love, being in a relationship or even entertaining the idea of romance, Embry is moving forward one day at a time.

Luke Brody is charming and sexy, and has a past of his own. He wants nothing more than to put his demons to rest and move on with his life. But, when Embry enters the picture, is he destined to repeat those same mistakes?

Blindsided by their instant attraction, neither Luke nor Embry are prepared for the feelings they’re developing. But will it all be for nothing?

Will they let their pasts destroy them, or will they risk everything to fight for their relationship when it all comes undone?

Release Date: December 22 2014
Cover Design by: Okay Creations
He talks dirty to me, but I don’t know his name.

He wants to tie me up, but I don’t know his face.

He turns me on, but I couldn’t point him out in a crowd.

I’ve fallen for an anonymous stranger, and tonight the anonymity ends. Tonight I want more than typed secrets and texted promises. I want something reckless. Heat. Passion. The thrill of being entirely possessed.

Because I suspect this anonymous stranger isn’t a stranger at all.

Lizzy Thompson met riverrat69 online through Something Real, a service promising to deliver meaningful relationships by forbidding its users to share names or photos until they’ve reached a certain benchmark.

She’s ninety-percent convinced she’s discovered the identity of her dirty-talking online friend.

She wonders if her ex-lover Sam Bradshaw knows her identity too.

Meet Lexi:
Once a college English professor, I now write full time. I live in rural Indiana, where, when I’m not writing, I get to hang out with my husband and two kids–a six-year-old boy and a two-year-old hellion, er, girl. Not surprisingly, reading and writing remain my favorite activities, though both come in bits and pieces these days, not the big hunks of time I enjoyed before I had children. When I’m feeling virtuous, I like to go running (I use that word liberally. I’m really, really slow) or do yoga. Don’t worry, I’m always careful to balance out such activities with a hearty serving of ice cream or a chocolate martini.

REVIEW ~Rocky Mountain Romance by Vivian Arend~

Title: Rocky Mountain Romance
Author: Vivian Arend
Series: Six Pack Ranch #7
Release Date: October, 21, 2014

My Rating: 4.5 Stars!
Second chances are the sweetest—and the hottest.
It took a spectacularly embarrassing break-up to knock Steve Moonshine Coleman off his lazy butt. In the ten months since that night, he’s changed his ways, and now that Melody’s back in town, it’s time for this sweet-talking cowboy to convince her to get back in the saddle with him.

A return to her veterinary position in Rocky Mountain House was always in the cards for Melody Langley. Getting back together with Steve? Never part of the plan. He had lots of potential but zero ambition, and there’s no way she’ll accept anything less than a man who can keep up with her, in and out of bed.

But the new-and-improved cowboy is impossible to resist, so Melody issues a challenge. Three months to prove he’s reformed. Three months of Steve orchestrating one sexual indulgence after another—wicked distractions from the old boys’ club Melody faces at work and Steve’s growing responsibilities.

He’s got one shot to prove with more than words what’s in his heart and soul.

Warning: Fifty percent less angst, twice as much filthy-talking, dirty-daring cowboy. Get ready for a whole lot of make-your-knees-weak wooing from a man intent on proving he’s got what it takes, and the woman ready to push him way past his limits.

It's been a while since I traveled to Six Pack Ranch, but now that I've devoured Rocky Mountain Romance I'm beating myself upside the head for not coming back sooner. This is a super sexy, and sweet book. Steve had me wondering where in good tarnations all the men who are like him are. And Melody, well she did second chances right. Keeping her guard up until the absolute perfect time to let Steve back in. I gobbled up this story. Between the heartfelt moments of Steve and Melody rekindling their romance, their inability to keep their hands of one another, and the perfect weaving of family within the pages, I couldn't get enough of this world. 

I'm a huge sucker for a cowboy book. Rocky Mountain Romance has them... in spades. Vivian Arend has a gift for focusing on the main couple, while dropping intriguing hints about the stories to come. It wasn't obvious that she was paving the way for future Coleman stories, it just flowed with the story effortlessly. However, you can bet that I'm dying to know what happens with a few of my new favorite Coleman boys. Back to Steve and Melody's story though - their story is one of tremendous growth. The feelings that were evoked when the met up again struck a chord deeper than when they used to be together. And while Melody would love to keep him at arm's length, Steve has changed his way and is hell bent on showing Melody the man he is now. He doesn't half ass anything. This man brings out the sexiest coercion tactics I've ever seen. Soon enough Melody is at his mercy. He doesn't just want in her bed though. He wants in her heart and he'll do anything to prove it. 

I want more Steve and Melody. I want their before story, their after story. Anything else I can get my hands on. They're a couple of little fuss, and pure cohesiveness. If you're looking for a seductive and playful book this is it. It's got that playful aspect, yet it as depth in its characters and storyline that is hard to come by. This is truly a feel good book, with a side of sexy that you will most definitely enjoy!

Happy Reading!

REVIEW ~Heat of the Moment by Robin Kaye~

Title: Heat of the Moment
Author: Robin Kaye
Release Date: October 21, 2014

My Rating: 4 Stars
Cameron O’Leary, a 4th generation firefighter turned arson investigator, thinks he’s the luckiest man in the world—after a year of sickness in the family, everyone’s finally on the mend, and his life can go back to its even keel. But even though Cameron has moved to Boston to be there for his family, some sort of live-in nurse is still necessary, given the demands of his job.

Erin Crosby is financing her master’s thesis in social work by acting as a home health care nurse. Working for Cameron seems like the perfect gig—low key, plenty of time to work on her thesis, and the patient is lovely. She might never have lived with a man before—she’s never found anyone she cared about that much, had barely even considered it—but Cameron is easy to live with, and an easy friendship blooms between them.

But it gets harder and harder for Cameron to keep his hands off of his charming employee—and for Erin to remember that she hasn’t really moved into Cameron’s life.

Heat of the Moment is a very heartfelt, sexy read. Cameron is a self-sufficient single dad. In walks Erin to care for his, now in remission, daughter. Before he knows it she's testing every patience he has, and evoking feelings he thought he had buried long ago. While Erin become far too attached to this man and his daughter. So attached that before she knows what's hit her she's fallen for both of them. 

I'm really hoping this is just the tipping point of this series. In the short story, we meet a very wide array of characters that just scream to have their stories told. From Cameron's brothers, to Erin's friend, I'm really going to enjoy getting to know this cast of eccentrics even more. As for Erin and Cameron, there story was terrific. A perfect blend of reality and happily ever after. Ms. Kaye can sure pack a punch in a few pages. 

Along with the steamy moments, there's anticipation from both Cameron and Erin. A fast relationship is not in either of their's character, yet when you've become a pseudo-family without even trying, how can either walk away? Albeit, this is not all sunshine and roses. there were a handful of moments where I got choked up. First at the beginning, because, good lord don't give a bright child like Janie a fight like that. It got to me. But it's a true gift. Robin Kaye had me sympathizing and caring for these characters before I even knew them. And once I did and Eric and Cameron went through their trials and tribulations, the feelings became even stronger. All in all, Heat of the Moment is quick, yet meaningful and sexy read that I would definitely suggest!

Happy Reading!

Title: Ruin
Author: C.D. Reiss
Series: Songs of Corruption #2
Release Date: October 14, 2014

My Rating: 5 Stars!
What happens when a mob capo falls for a lawful woman?

Does he ruin her, or does she ruin him?

Do they live together, or die together? 

This is Antonio Spinelli's story.

WARNING: This book contains delicious sex scenes with a hot man dirty-talking in Italian; women handling firearms and explosives; and scenes of violence with a crystal virgin Mary cigarette lighter.
Oh the twisted, demented ways of CD Reiss. Ruin held up to its name and utterly decimated me. The up and down, left and right. And the feels. Oh all the feels. I've never loved and hated a couple this much before. Capo (Antonio) and Contessa (Theresa) are truly in a love hate relationship with me the reader and sometimes even with each other. They fight like hell for their lives and their love. Yet, they can't live the life they want together. He can't leave his corrupt mafia world alive, and he can't force his Contessa to go on the run with him. So what is a Capo to do, but be bull-headed and make decisions for the both of them that are not his alone to make?

Antonio is clearly a man I love to hate, and hate to love. He blurs that ethical line so much. But who's the idiot cheering for this criminal and princess to make it? Me. Squealing and cheering. With pom poms. No, I'm not ashamed. I love it. And as for Theresa, well her corrupting ways didn't just come from the clear blue sky. She's always had the ability to be the ruthless Contessa she's turned into. She just needed her, equally ruthless, Capo by her side.

Together they are unforgiving, and undeniably consuming on the pages of Ruin. I didn't want this book to end. It was a thousand trains colliding all at once. In a world built on a house of cards, which weak link will break first? Too many things went right, and too many things went wrong. Leaving me wondering what in the bloody hell I had gotten myself into. At this point I'm so invested in this series, that IF I were some sort of author stalker, CD might be getting a knock on her door very soon. As in yesterday. Once again, Ms. Reiss as taken to luring me into her bizarro world and throwing her book at me, the very book that I didn't know I was craving to read. She knew what I needed and wanted, as a reader, before I did. How's that for some scary shit? So, if you'd like to be privy to this insanely seductive, and cruel world please go grab of copy of Ruin. Today. I'll wait... Don't make me go all Capo on you.

Happy Reading!

Mafia capo, Antonio Spinelli blew through my orderly life like a cyclone.

Gorgeous and passionate, with a breathtaking brutality, he put me under his spell the moment he touched me, drawing me into his underworld of risk, violence and betrayal.

And I found, just as this sophisticated savage didn’t trust me, I didn’t trust myself. Something happened to me. Some alchemy from the heat between us.

I discovered I was a savage, too.
