Bleeding Love blog tour and Giveaway!

(Stand alone)
I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day. 
Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again. 
Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face. 

He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.

Meet Liam & Megan in the newest stand alone 
in the Hope Town Series by Harper Sloan! 

Excerpt #1 
His mouth leaves mine and with his hand still on my leg, he demands, “Dig your heels in deep, baby.”
I give him what he wants, but not because he told me to.  I give him what he wants because when his hand leaves my leg and pushes into the mattress, bringing his body up he goes even deeper into my body and those heels push hard.
Just as he demanded earlier, my hands go to his shoulders on my own accord and as he takes my body hard, my nails dig in with my heels still pushing hard against the small of his back.  Our eyes never leave each other’s probing gaze.  Never once do I take my eyes away from his, so full of lust that I know there isn’t an ounce of control left in his body.
He drops his head and I lift up to meet him in a kiss so sweet it doesn’t match the powerful way that he’s taking my body.  A kiss that gives me more than words ever could at this moment.  His hips slow and as his tongue rolls against mine, his hips start to take me in slow, deep rolls.  He doesn’t pull back, just rocks his hips against mine.
I push up and cry out when he slips even deeper.
His lips come from mine and his hooded eyes open a sliver.  “Feels like heaven,” he says softly.  “Everything, darlin’.  Feels like everything.”

Christy's 5 star review! 

5 ‘It’s a Beckett thing’ stars!

John Beckett made that book, and knowing Bleeding Love is a book about his son, Liam Beckett, I couldn't wait to start it. The minute it was on my kindle I jumped right in. And it didn’t disappoint. I loved it almost as much as Beck. In fact, it might be tied as my favorite now!

Liam Beckett is a cop. He’s a good guy with great friends and parents that love him more than anything. Megan is an author. She’s a single mom who was widowed a few years ago. Besides her daughter, she’s alone in the world. The gang has kind of taken her under their wing lately. Her late husband and Cohen served together so they have that connection.

There is something about Megan that draws Liam in right away. He gives her time. He knows about her situation and the fragility of it all. He’s patient…. for a while. But once it’s time to make his move, he doesn’t hold back. Liam is all in. How do you try to help someone, to be with someone with a past that haunts them? It’s not easy, that’s for sure. But it doesn’t stop  Liam from trying.

Not only am I fighting for someone that can’t see through the shadows to find the rope I’m holding to pull herself off rock bottom, but I’m also fighting the ghosts of her past that I’m not sure will let her go long enough to make that climb

I love that Liam was able to be patient with Megan, but also push just enough to get her out of her comfort zone. To get her to start living life again.

This is one of those stories where I loved both the main characters equally. Then you add the most adorable kid into the mix. It was perfect! Not only that, but you get bits and pieces of The Corps family- and catching up with characters you love is the best.

I love the family that these characters are. I love how they take Megan and her kid into the fold, no questions asked. Even before Liam, they claim her as their own. They are just those kind of people. It’s no wonder Liam is so great of a guy, he comes from people like that.

What I loved most about this book is the fact that I think she switched up her formula a bit towards the end (view spoiler). The writing had a good flow, the story was strong and I loved the characters. This one gets a full 5 stars from me!

Bleeding Love can be read as a stand alone, but to get a bit of Megan and Liam’s backstory I would recommend reading Unexpected Fate first. And I also recommend The Corps Security series just because they are somewhat connected and I adore those books!

“Thank you.”

“For what?”

About the Author:

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
