Nobody But You blog tour + Giveaway!

When Jacob was injured in the war, it changed him for life. Now all he wants to do is come home to Cedar Ridge, settle in at his lakeside cabin and get some much-needed peace and quiet. But there's no peace to be had when he finds a spitfire of a woman camping out on his property. Half the time he's not sure whether he wants to spank her or kiss--or maybe both. He's in a dark place and a dark mood, and here's this wildly hot woman who is also funny and light and may be the balm be needs to soothe his aching soul.

Sophie Marren is pretty much penniless after leaving her abusive husband. She doesn't have the money to pay rent or the slip fees for docking the boat where she's been sleeping. She was getting along just perfectly until the good-looking, brooding, I'm-too-sexy-for-myself guy moves into the lake cabin that the slip belongs to. Sure he's hot as the noon sun with those dark lens and even darker 'tude, but god forbid she tie herself to another man who's always telling her what to do. But the more she gets to know Jacob, the more she sees how willing he is to battle for her wounded heart...a battle she might just let him win.


4 stars!!!!

When I picked up this book, I was in the mood for romance. A lighter romance. Nothing too over the top. Just something sweet, fun and sexy. This book was it. It was not overly sexy or overly sweet, but the perfect combination. This is the first Jill Shalvis book I’ve read, but next time I’m in the mood for a book like this, I can see her becoming the author I’d turn to.

Sophie Marren is recently divorced and holding on to one thing from her marriage. Not the one thing she loved, no. The one thing her cheating, lying ex loved. His boat. She meets Jacob Kincaid while mooring her newly acquired boat on his dock. Jacob hasn’t been to Cedar Grove in almost 10 years. He’s been in the service and hasn’t kept up with most of his family. He needs to rebuild bridges, and make things right with his family, but he’s having trouble focusing on that with this fiery redhead and her boat always around.

Jacob is a manly man with a tough exterior. His years in the service contributed to that. Sophie is one of those heroines I love. She is feisty, sassy and resilient. She has been beaten down by life and she’s turning it around on her own terms. I loved how Jacob always let her be her. Never tried to completely domineer her even though it’s in his nature to do so. They complimented each other perfectly and had great chemistry.

This book is about love, family, friendship and trust. It’s equal parts steamy, sweet and fun. I enjoyed the Kincaid siblings and I hope to read more books about them! Especially the sister, Kenna! If you’re looking for a contemporary romance this is one I’d recommend!

She eyed the bench a long beat but did eventually sit, perching primly as far from him as she could get and yet still be close enough to grab the bottle.

Smart woman.

She took the Scotch and drank. Her eyes watered and she coughed as she handed it to him. With a sigh, she leaned back to study the night sky. Her bared throat was slim and creamy smooth. An unexpected temptation. Remembering the flash of pain and vulnerability she’d unwittingly revealed, and that for whatever reason he’d somehow added to it, he spoke. “I’m sorry.”

She glanced at him as if she’d never heard a man apologize before in her life. “For…breathing?” she asked. “Having a penis? What?”

“You were upset because you didn’t know I was a Kincaid.”

She sighed. “That was just me looking for a reason to be mad at you so I wouldn’t…” 

She bit her lower lip, clearly not wanting to go on.

But now he had to know. “So you wouldn’t what?”

“Nothing,” she said. “It’s just that I’m trying to make better choices.”

“Of which I wouldn’t be one.”

“It’s not necessarily your fault,” she said. “It’s that you’re a man.”

“Guilty as charged.”

“And I’m off men right now.”

“And on…women?” he asked with admittedly more than a little fascination.

She rolled her eyes. “I’m on no one, but thank you for proving my point on men.”

“I get that,” he said. “But being off men doesn’t seem to be making you very happy, or sound like a whole lot of fun.”

“Maybe I don’t need fun.” 

He understood that. He’d felt the same way since Brett died. “What do you need?” he asked, honestly wanting to know more about her.

Instead of answering, she reached for the bottle. He waited until she met his gaze before letting go.
“Nothing,” she said a little too quickly. “Everything’s…perfect.”

“And your glass is half full,” he said. “So you’ve said.”

But he didn’t believe her. “How about a game?”

“I don’t play games.”

Now, that wasn’t exactly true. Whether she knew it or not, she’d been playing with  his head since he’d first laid eyes on her. “Three truths and a lie,” he said.

She stared at him. “As in you tell me three truths and a lie, and I pick out the lie?”


She considered this. “What do I get if I win?”

“What do you want?”

For the briefest of beats, her gaze dropped to his mouth.

Oh, hell yeah, he thought. Want me…

“My first boyfriend taught me that game,” she said.

“What did the winner get?”

“A kiss.”

Definitely still playing with his head… “Is that what you want, Sophie? A kiss?”

Again she stared at his mouth before dropping eye contact and wrapping that eye-stopping pink robe tighter around her body. “Do you?” she asked.

“Hell yes.”

Her gaze flew to his.

“Problem is,” he said conversationally, “if I kissed you, I don’t think I’d be able to stop.”

Her mouth literally fell open. The pulse at the base of her throat jumped. And she seemed to lose her words.

He went on. “But you should know, I don’t lose. That means you’ll have to tell me three truths and a lie.” And he’d hopefully get to know more about her.
She closed her mouth to bite her lower lip in what could’ve been indecision or excitement. Obviously he was hoping for the latter. “But hey, if you’re not sure you can handle losing, we can just forget about it,” he said. 

The challenge lifted her chin and put sparks in her eyes. That’s it, babe. Show me what you’ve got.

“Bring it,” she said.

Cuff Me by Lauren Layne: Release Day Blitz!

Vincent Moretti is one of the NYPD's top homicide detectives-and one of the most eligible bachelors in town. His family, however, thinks he should date his longtime partner, Jill-a sassy, sexy, smart-mouthed blonde who drives him absolutely crazy.

Behind the quiet authority, tough-guy demeanor, and dark aviator glasses lies a man with a big soul-and a hard body that can soften any girl's heart. After years as his coworker, Jill Henley has given up hope that anything could happen between her and Vin. Besides, loving him would break all the rules. But seeing Jill with someone else triggers feelings in Vincent he never knew he had. Now he'll have to stop playing good cop/bad cop-and find a way to convince her to be his partner for life. . .

About Lauren Layne
A long-time romance reader, Lauren Layne thinks the only thing better than reading about happy endings is writing them. She now pursues a full-time career in Happily Ever After, a job she's naturally suited for after marrying her high school sweetheart. A bit of a nomad, Lauren's lived everywhere from Orange County to Manhattan. Her hobbies include coffee by day, wine by night, and lots of writing in between. She's also a total website nerd and insists you check out!

There’s something wrong with a man that grins like that at a crime scene.” 
Detective Vincent Moretti glanced up from where he’d been studying the gunshot wound of the vic and glared at the officer who’d been shadowing him for the past three months. 
“I wasn’t grinning.” 
Detective Tyler Dansen never paused in scribbling in the black notebook he carried everywhere. “You were definitely grinning.” 
Dansen glanced up. “Fine. Maybe not grinning. But I’m one hundred percent sure I saw you smile.” 
“How about you be one hundred percent sure about who shot this guy instead?” Vincent said irritably. 
Dansen returned his attention to his damn notebook, but he didn’t look particularly chagrined by Vin’s reprimand. 
Oh, what Vin wouldn’t give to go back to those early days when all he’d had to do was look at Dansen, and the kid practically dropped into a deferential bow. 
Three months of spending every workday in each other’s company had the newly minted detective acting nearly as impudent as Vincent’s actual partner. 
Nearly being an important distinction, because Vincent didn’t think they made ’em sassier, more stubborn, or more annoying than Detective Jill Henley. 
And he would know. They’d been partners for six long years, and their pairing up as partners was proof of God’s sense of humor. 
Jill Henley was Vincent’s opposite in every way. 
Jill was chipper, charming, and smiley. 
Vincent was... none of those things. 
Especially not the last one. Although, if he was being really honest with himself, Dansen may have been right about Vincent cracking a smile earlier. 
It’s not that Vin was immune to death. There was absolutely nothing humorous about a man lying cold in his own blood and guts, dead from a gunshot wound to the stomach. 
But after six years as a homicide DT for the NYPD, one learned to compartmentalize. To let the brain occasionally go somewhere else other than death even as you were staring straight at it. 
It was the only way to survive. Otherwise it was nothing but puking and nightmares. 
And speaking of puking... 
Vincent stood and gave Detective Dansen a once-over. 
“If you’re gonna barf, do it outside,” he said, just to needle the younger man. 
Dansen threw his arms up in exasperation. “That was one time. One time! And I hear it happens to everyone on their first day.” 
“Didn’t happen to me.” 
“That’s because you’re a machine,” Dansen muttered under his breath. 
Vincent didn’t respond to this. It was nothing he hadn’t heard before. Robot. Machine. Automaton. 
He just didn’t know what people expected him to do about it. 
In the movies, there was always some reason for the semi-mechanical, unfeeling action hero. 
Either a dead wife, an abusive past, or some other sort of jacked-up emotional history. But Vincent had always sort of figured he’d been born this way. Quiet. Reserved. Broody. 
It’s not that he didn’t feel. Of course he did. He just didn’t feel out loud. He wasn’t sure that he really knew how to, and wasn’t sure he wanted to learn.

In Your Dreams by Ginger Scott - RELEASE DAY!! @wordsmithpublic @thegingerscott

We are so excited to celebrate the release of IN YOUR DREAMS by Ginger Scott! Check out the excerpt and giveaway below!

A Falling Series Spin-Off
NA Contemporary Romance
Cover photo shot by Frank Rodriguez - DLRfoto
Cover design by Ginger Scott
Scheduled to release: March 29, 2016

Casey Coffield has a growing list of personal flaws he keeps locked away in his head:
He’s never on time.
His list of IOUs to his best friend is endless.
Money is always short.
Goals are never in reach.

Oh, and he’s decided to add college drop-out to that list, too. He doesn’t really think that last one’s such a bad thing, but his family insists it is, so it stays on the list.

On paper, he’s a zero. But in person, when he’s mixing tracks for a sea of bodies at the hottest clubs and parties, he’s downright irresistible. Just-right stubble on his chin, body of a boxer and a smirk that stimulates all the right nerves—women have never been a problem. They flock to his swagger and fall for his charm…fast.

All except for this one.

Purple hair, gray eyes, a raspy voice and sass, Murphy Sullivan is a little bit country and a little bit rock-n-roll. And her and Casey? They have history. He can’t remember it, but she wrote a song about him—and it’s not exactly a love song. But it is good. Damn good. And uncovering her inspiration just might be the key to solving a few of his shortcomings—not to mention open doors to his own big break in the music industry.

But sometimes dreams get messy when they collide. Sometimes life changes patterns. A past paints the wrong picture and futures get cloudy. The only question that remains is who will you choose when the dust settles—you? Or the girl of your dreams?

She breathes in slowly, rolling on her back and stretching her arms over her head. The black T-shirt she’s wearing rides up enough that I see her sides and bare stomach above her low-slung jeans, and I think to myself how far I’ve come. Any other girl, some other place and time, and I would be switching gears right now, capitalizing, because I always get the girl. I just don’t always keep the girl. They learn things, grow tired of me, or, more often, I am bored and done before anything has a chance. It’s never been the right girl, really. But Murphy…she’s a keep kind of girl. And this whole thing started because she hates me, so patience is necessary. But I have had my hand on that stomach. I’ve felt how warm her skin is through layers of fabric. I bet her skin is searing bare.

Patience isn’t a virtue. Patience is a murderer of six-foot-one fools desperate to kiss girls who sing like angels and look like my dreams.

Forever Pucked by Helena Hunting ALL THE STARS review

5 Beaver + Super MC stars!

I just ADORE Helena Huntings writing style. She makes me want to be cool enough to be friends with her. LOL. I can remember reading Pucked and laughing my ass off at Violet and her mouth. And with Forever Pucked it was the same. Only with Forever Pucked there was so much more HEART with Alex and Violet. 

Helena can write funny romance like no other. I should also throw in the word dirty in that sentence...funny dirty romance. She's brilliant at it. I don't want this series to end. She just needs to keep writing stories about these characters. Just like the title says FOREVER PUCKED! Hehe. 

Helena writes comedy with heart, so if you're looking for a romantic comedy that's not just fluff, this series is for you. I give all the stars! ALL THE STARS!!

After recovering from a brain tumor, months later, she suffers the tragic loss of her whole family.
Since that fateful day, she’s been coasting through life.

Now, the brain tumor has returned, and Taylor decides she’s had enough. She’s going to take her fate into her own hands.

It’s her decision. 
What she longs for.

She just has a list of things to do before she goes. 
First, go to England. 
Second, kiss a stranger…

To change her.
