New Release: At Her Own Risk by Rachael Duncan

Title: At Her Own Risk

Author: Rachael Duncan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release: August 14, 2017
 
Sex.

That’s all it was supposed to be. No strings attached, no feelings, no heartache. 

But if I thought Sean Riley would be content having only parts of me, I was dead wrong. His persistence wore me down and I found myself in the one situation I was trying to avoid. 

Little does he know a life with me will lead to nothing but disappointment and heartbreak. He’s a good man and deserves everything I can’t give him. Not because I don’t want to, but because I’m unable. 

Pushing him away in the beginning was to protect me, now I’m trying to protect him as I gear up for the fight of my life. 

A fight I could lose. 

Getting into a relationship was my risk, but as things get worse, I’m not the only one who will have something to lose. 

I just hope it’s worth it.


“Come back to me,” I finally plead.
She looks into my eyes and there’s so much pain I can’t stand it. “I don’t know how.” Her voice is strained as she tries to hold back the tears.
“Let me help you.” I cup her face and she leans into it.
“I just want to stop feeling this way and I can’t.” A tear falls down her cheek.
“Like what?”
She pauses and says, “Empty.”

MY REVIEW

Wallflowers: Double Trouble by C.P. Smith
Sienna & Bo
I’VE NEVER GIGGLE SO MUCH
5 STARS

Seriously folks… this is a “Romantic Suspense,” so don’t get me wrong. It’s packed full of suspense, but equally packed with humor…. Lots and lots of humor. How can you not laugh at these Wallflowers? They do and say some of the funniest shit that I couldn’t help but laugh out loud… even on the treadmill at the gym.. I got some funny looks, but kept on laughing!

Sienna is just like the rest of them. Headstrong, heartstrong, and has a will of steel. At times I wanted to high five her and join in the festivities and other times I was like, girl you betta not! She reminds me of someone I know!! (wink wink). I guess the best part of this book for me was the crazy antics the girls found themselves into. I want to BE a Wallflower!!

Bo is all kinds of crazy… but I guess you have to be to take on a Wallflower. He starts out kind of set in his ways, but before long he’s finding himself caving to the predicaments Sienna and the girls get themselves into. Poor guy! He does have back up, but in my opinion, no amount of back up is enough to handle Sienna, Poppy, and Cali! LOL!

I loved all the supporting character cast. I like to see the past and future main characters mingling with the current ones. CP always finds a way to bring everyone back so that we can get a glimpse into what’s happening with their lives or (wink wink) what is sure to happen in an upcoming book!

This story is gripping, hilarious, and sensual. I found it flowed very nicely and the storyline was captivating. The characters are commanding and the tension immense. It’s not a dark read, but definitely not light either. I loved the ending even though it hooked me for the next book… I’ll be thinking about a biker dude for a while now!

Release Blitz & Review: Two is a Lie (Tangled Lies #2) by Pam Godwin

New Release – Two is a Lie
Book 2 in the Tangled Lies series

Amazon | Other retailers | Goodreads | Teasers

Two lies.
Two men who don’t share.

I never stopped loving Cole. Not when he left me. Not when he disappeared for three years. Not when he crashed back into my life in a violent explosion of testosterone and fury.
His sudden reappearance questions everything I thought I knew, including how I came to love another man.

Trace is an intoxicating breeze of seduction over ice. My rock. My second chance at forever.
And he’s committed to annihilating the competition.

The battle that ensues wrenches me back and forth between them.
Fighting and fucking.
Resisting and submitting.

Together, they entangle me in a web of lies, rivalry, and desire that weaves as deeply as their devotion to me.

I love two men, and if I can only have one, I choose none.

 

MY REVIEW

Two is a Lie by Pam Godwin
Danni, Cole, and Trace
GODDAMN IT, THIS TRIANGLE IS COLLAPSING
5 STARS

Fuck me people… this story is getting so fucking intense. These people are assholes… Danni’s an asshole, Cole’s an asshole, and Trace is one too! But fuck me, I still love these assholes. I have no idea where this story is going, but I can’t stop thinking about it. I have some theories, but I’m sure Pam will throw more monkey wrenches in there just to keep me on my toes.

Danni has been driving me absolutely bonkers. I mean the girl makes rules and then breaks them and then expects things to just be ok. Yeah, good luck chica! The only way I see this working out for her is either alone without either one of these dudes, or the three of them making it work out for a harmonious threesome. God help me, I don’t think I can take much more!

Cole always seems like the “manchild” to me. I know he’s not and he’s been trained to do some pretty kickass shit, but he seems to be the one who doesn’t think things through where Danni is concerned. In essences, thinking with his dick! I wanna hug him and smack him all at the same time.

Trace is the cryptic one, the one who keeps his emotions and actions well hidden. I think this is why I’m “team Trace,” because who doesn’t appreciate a tall, dark, and mysterious hunka-munka from time to time? I think he has more of Danni’s best interests at the forefront of his agenda, but he’s still pissing me off with his bossiness and controlling issues. Ugh!

So, the story is heating up, getting more intense. It still sings with plenty of humor, but the tragic side is starting to rear its evil head more often. I can’t and I won’t be swayed by either side at this point. I don’t even know if I’m on Danni’s side anymore. I just know that I’m enthralled with this crazy love triangle and all the emotions it brings me. The characters are my posse and their dialogue my drug. I’ve been hanging on every word, every chapter and it’s heading, and crossing my fingers and toes in hopes of a favorable outcome. Then I come to my senses, because this is Pam Godwin we’re taking about… She never lets you down gently and God help me, but I can’t wait to see what her words to do me in the last installment!

Three means war.
Three sides vying for forever.

Cole.

Trace.
My second chance.
Over six feet of Norse god in a tailored suit, he calculates every move and seizes my hungry breaths with an iron fist.

Me.
The free-spirited dancer, torn between two men with no resolution in sight.
I tried leaving, staying, refusing, and surrendering.
What options do I have left?

I love two men, and I do the only thing I can. I fight.

Release Blitz: The Terms (Part two) by Ruby Rowe

 

 Title: The Terms: Part Two
Series: The Terms Duet
Author: Ruby Rowe
Genres: Romantic Suspense, Erotica Romance, BDSM
Release Date: June 30, 2017

Camilla
I longed to believe my bond with Ellis was impenetrable, but in reality, I held secrets that could blow open the tightly woven seam of our newfound relationship. Would he understand how we were both victims in his brother’s betrayal, or would he take his anger out on the one person still alive–me? Could the words my sister spoke about Liam’s father be true? If so, how would Ellis and I recover from what was lost?

Christopher’s jealousy was intensifying as a future with me became even less attainable. No, I belonged to one man only, and I was going to prove to Ellis that we could overcome the past and share an amazing future. I had two important roles in life: being a mother and a submissive, and I would fight to keep them both.

Sasha
Once I left rehab, the thought of living alone during my recovery scared me, but being told I had to move in with Ellis’s attractive cousin instead of going back to my apartment was terrifying. My sister, Camilla, ran a tight ship, but she wasn’t nearly as intimidating as Greyson and the terms he laid out for me.

The reality that I was borrowing space amongst his superior existence didn’t need to be spoken. For that reason, I was blindsided when his gaze began to undress me and his touch became more than a brush of the shoulder. Greyson Burke saw something in me I was struggling to see in myself, and that meant he held the power … it also meant I had to run.

Excerpt from The Terms: Part Two (The Terms Duet)
© Ruby Rowe 2017
After using Ellis’s ginormous bathroom, I trade places with him and sit on the side of his bed. Becoming fidgety, I play with the hem of my short red chemise and examine the dark mahogany frame surrounding me.

Like his bathroom, it’s massive, and I feel it could swallow me whole as my mind dwells on the incident with Christopher at the park.

With the door open between Ellis and me, I hear the sink turn on, and my mind reaches the conclusion that if my confession is barely audible over the running water, the impact on him and the backlash on me will be less intense.

“I have something to tell you,” I blurt out.

“What’s that?” He starts brushing his teeth, so I feel as if the safety belt is buckled, protecting me from an oncoming collision.

“Christopher dropped by the park today to spend time with Liam … and me.”

Water off.

Spit next.

The sound of a ping as his toothbrush connects with the marble vanity.

Oh, damn. Brace for impact.

He appears at the doorway, so I take a glimpse at his blue eyes that are iced over with anger.

“What happened exactly?”

My gaze falls to his bare feet and roams upward. I see there’s no barrier between his large cock and the thin cotton of his grey sweats. His slender hips do me a solid and barely hang on to his pants for my viewing pleasure.

I follow the sexy V up to his chiseled abs and on past them until I reach his shirtless chest, which has a spattering of hair. Oh, how I love this irresistible man.

“Camilla, answer my question.” Reluctantly, I look at his eyes. Yep, still icy.

“He said he dropped by to hang out with us, so since Liam and I were having a picnic, I was polite and offered him a sandwich. He ate lunch before entertaining Liam on the playground. Then, he left.”

I bite the corner of my lip, hoping this is the end of the conversation. Leaning against the doorframe, he crosses his arms and furrows his brow.

“What did you two discuss while hanging out? And your honesty decides whether you receive a reward or a punishment.”

All his sexiness and the use of those two words cause my pelvic muscles to contract. My stomach flinches from the need and desire, and my breathing accelerates.

“Stop eye-fucking me. Even though it’s working at getting my cock hard, it’s not enough to take my mind off you and Christopher alone at the park.”

 

  

 

 

 

I wanted to hate her. For three years, Camilla withheld the fact that my brother had a son, Liam.

Then, Tony died without ever knowing his kid, and I was going to make sure Ms. Rose paid a price for her deceit. I also wanted Liam to be raised as a Burke. Our family’s legacy was one to carry on, so the terms were straightforward.

Live in my home.

Allow me to help raise Liam.

Oh, and agree to be my submissive.

In return, I agreed not to rip Camilla’s child away from her. I also offered them both financial security and a life of luxury. It seemed generous to me. It might’ve been simple, too, had she not reminded me of the lady in red. The one who haunted my dreams at night. Camilla’s hazel eyes were a mirror image, her sweetness more than an acquaintance to my subconscious.

I was a hacker by trade, and the internet was my best friend, sharing with me every secret I wished to unearth. I believed that until an unfathomable truth revealed itself in a different way.

Some secrets are never whispered, only sensed by the heart, and all along, my soul held the truth. It hid even from me the most important secret of them all.

The Terms ends in a cliffhanger. It contains explicit language and graphic sex, including aspects of BDSM. The second novel in the duet, The Terms: Part Two, will release June 30th.

 

      

COLTON

I tried to keep my distance. I knew how much trouble Summer could cause me once she was, in her words, “legal.” She wouldn’t accept that being my best friend’s sister meant she was governed by another set of laws.

She was the forbidden fruit.

The “off-limits” trophy prize I couldn’t win.

The “don’t look and sure as hell don’t touch” female in my life.

But Summer pushed until I was backed into a corner. My hands and mouth had nowhere to go but on her. That was my story, and I was stickin’ to it.

SUMMER

I’d known Colton Graham all my life, and he was always a pest … until he wasn’t. That handsome face and masculine body he grew into became hard to look away from, and the more he matured and distanced himself from me, the more I wanted him close.

Since I’d grown up with a brother, I knew how college guys operated. Relationships were off the table, and fine by me; I only wanted two adventurous months with Colton. I knew he wouldn’t be my last, but I was hell-bent on making him my first. What was the harm in that? I could do casual … or so I thought.

Summer Trouble is a Ruby Romp Novella, meaning it contains insta-lust, along with an abundance of dirty talk and graphic sex. It can typically be enjoyed in one reading, so get ready for a fast-paced “get your panties wet” ride.

 

    

Ruby Rowe began writing in January of 2013 under the pen name Scarlet Wolfe, releasing contemporary and young adult. She soon tried her hand at writing erotica romance and fell in love with the genre.

The pen name Ruby Rowe came about in 2017 when she decided it best to keep her racier books separate from her young adult romances. She’d like to branch out and release straight erotica, however, she’s a romantic at heart, and believes it will be difficult not to include romance in every story.

When not writing, Ruby reads naughty books about possessive, hot alpha males. She has an addiction to Pinterest, pinning all the sensual photos she can find. She loves bacon, coffee, and other flavors of ice cream besides vanilla. 😉 She hopes her writing will allow her readers a reprieve from the real world, giving them an opportunity to live out their
fantasies.
