New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert continues her smoking-hot series about the O'Malleys—wealthy, powerful, and full of scandalous family secrets.

Greed. Ambition. Violence. Those are the "values" Olivia Rashidi learned from her Russian mob family-and the values she must leave behind for the sake of her daughter. When she meets Cillian O'Malley, she recognizes the red flag of his family name…yet she still can't stop herself from seeing the smoldering, tortured man. To save her family, Olivia sets out to discover Cillian's own secrets, but the real revelation is how fast—and how hard—she's falling for him.

Plagued by a violent past, Cillian is more vulnerable than anyone realizes. Anyone except Olivia, whose beauty, compassion, and pride have him at "hello," even if she's more inclined to say good-bye to an O'Malley. While his proposal of sex with no strings seems simple, what he feels for her isn't, especially after he learns that she belongs to a rival crime family. Cillian knows that there is no escape from the life, but Olivia may be worth trying—and dying—for.

Review:

I really enjoy Katee Robert's writing style! And an Indecent Proposal continues along that vein as I fell in love with the O'Malley's all over again. Even in the pain that came after the loss of one of the brothers. I was certainly interested in seeing what came after that and how different characters were dealing...and let me tell you I was not disappointed. 

Cillian and Olivia are very lifelike, not perfect in any way and I admire Olivia's tough choices. Cillian also had his moments. 

I very much enjoyed reading the third book in the O'Malley's series and look forward to hearing more of their stories!



AN INDECENT PROPOSAL Blitz Excerpt

Need another drink?” The words were clear despite the general ruckus of the bar, the voice like whiskey on the rocks. If Cillian O’Malley put a little imagination into it, he could almost taste her tone. It was the closest he’d come to having an actual drink in ten months.
Olivia.
He looked up, straight into night-dark eyes that made him think reckless thoughts about leaning across this bar and kissing the hell out of this woman. It was something the old Cillian would have done, and if the look on her face was any indication, he would have gotten the shit kicked out of him for the effort. He smiled despite the dark mood that had brought him wandering into Jameson’s to begin with. “Hey, gorgeous.”
The guarded look on her face was the same as the first time they’d met, like she expected him to whip out a gun and start shooting or threaten her or some shit like that.  Since he knew for a fact he’d ever so much as raised his voice at her in the two times they’d interacted previously, it stung a little that that was her knee-jerk reaction to him.
And it made him want to show her how wrong she was.
“You know, I’d pay good money to know what I did to piss you off so much.”
Olivia’s expression iced over in a way that would send a smarter man running. It just made Cillian more intrigued.  He’d been caught up in his family’s dramas for so long, it was refreshing to having an unconnected interaction—even if it was with someone who hated him. Hell, it was almost better this way.
It just added to the tangled mess inside him caused by sitting in this bar. Jameson’s and he had a complicated history that he’d never be able to escape. It was the last place his family had felt whole. He’d been here with his brothers, Aiden and Teague and Devlin, on the final night when they’d been celebrating Teague’s impending marriage. Devlin had been shot in a drive-by on the way home, and the O’Malley family had lost the closest thing to an innocent they could call their own. Cillian hated this place as much as he loved it, but it was here his feet brought him when he wandered.
Olivia crossed her arms over her chest, which only served to accent the way her breasts pressed against her shredded T-shirt. It wasn’t ripped enough to be truly indecent, but he could see several slices of her dusky skin beneath the black fabric, and it was distracting as hell. She cleared her throat, but he still gave her body a slow look, taking in her spiked combat boots, tiny skirt, coming back to that shirt, and then settling on her face. She was beautiful in the way good models were—a little too sharp for strictly traditional good looks, but all the more striking because of it. The mass of dark hair and the anger in near-black eyes took her over the edge into devastating.
She looked like the kind of mistake he would have jumped at a year ago. He had  jumped at her six months ago when they’d first met, and it had gone in the same direction their current interaction was headed. She’d taken an instant dislike to him, and nothing he could say seemed to convince her that he wasn’t this monster she seemed to label him as.
            So much had happened between then and now, so much that weighed him down and threatened to drag him under for good. He hadn’t even been out by himself since he was shot—the same night he’d last seen Olivia. He rubbed his shoulder, half-sure he could feel the scar beneath the fabric of his shirt.
What would it be like to be that carefree and crazy version of himself, just for one more night?


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa's knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.

Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way-as it often does-and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she'd like to write a book and try to get published.

Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding romance. Because, really, who wouldn't want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?

She now spends her time-when not lost in Far Reach worlds-playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

Last Kiss of Summer by Marina Adair Release Blitz!



He's one bad apple she just can't resist . . .

Kennedy Sinclair never dreamed she'd own a pie shop and an orchard in a small town like Destiny Bay. But nestled between the mountains and the Pacific Ocean, it's the perfect place to cross something off her "Life's short so eat the icing first" list and start her life over from scratch. Her shop, Sweetie Pies, is famous for its hot, flaky apple turnovers and sinfully delicious deep dish pie. For Kennedy though, nothing is more enticing than the tall, strapping slice of temptation who keeps coming back for more.


Luke Callahan is determined to make his hard cider business a success. With his beloved father's cider recipe and the opportunity of a lifetime in his grasp, he'll stop at nothing to get this deal done. There's just one catch: he needs Kennedy's apples. At first, he thinks it'll be as easy as pie to charm those apples right off her trees. But Kennedy isn't falling for his tender charms or his wicked ways. When the negotiations start heating up, so do the feelings they have for each other. And it takes just one kiss to seal the deal . . .
 


Review:


I have to say I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. as I was reading. I would assume that the characters would behave in one way but then they would do something I was not expecting. It certainly made for an interesting read as the more times I was proven wrong, the more interested I got. 

The plot itself and the relationship between characters was strong. The characters themselves were full of spunk and I really admired both Kennedy and Luke's strength and stubbornness. Neither of them wanted to give in or give up and I admire that quality in the two although it did make for some serious sparks when the two came into conflict. 

I really enjoyed the first book in the Destiny Bay Series, Last Kiss of Summer and I look forward to reading more in this series as they become available!

When Stars Collide by Micalea Smeltzer Release Blitz!






Title: When Stars Collide
Series: Light in the Dark #2 
Author: Micalea Smeltzer
Genre: New Adult
 Release Date: August 30, 2016




Blurb


We were like two stars orbiting each other—dancing around the possibility that one day we might collide. When we finally did, we opened up a black hole, obliterating everything around us. No one would be the same.



Least of all, us.


Waking up in Vegas married to the guy of your dreams sounds like a good thing, right? Not when you’re Thea Montgomery and said guy is your brother’s best friend.

Thea and Xander have always avoided the connection between them because her brother would never approve. Now, they’re married— the strongest bond you can have as a couple—and they’re not even a real couple…unless they want to be.

Thea wants an annulment immediately, but Xander’s waited too long to see her become his and he won’t let her go easily.

If she wants a divorce, fine, but he wants the summer to convince her that he’s the one. If at the end of the summer she still wants to end their marriage he’ll sign the papers, but until then…




All is not fair in love and war.

Review:

Okay honestly, where can I find myself a Micalea Smeltzer hero? Because sign me up! When Stars Collide had the right amount of seriousness, humor and romance, not to mention it was easy to get entangled with the story of Thea and Xander as well as catching up with Rae and Cade. Not gonna lie after finishing When Stars Collide I had to go back and reread Rae of Sunshine, just because. 

Thea and Xander were amazingly well created. They had their flaws but they worked together(for the most part). There was enough conflict to make things interesting but it wasn't just because of external forces outside of the couple. They had their own struggles to deal with as well.


Overall this book was complex and yet felt familiar to what Micalea Smeltzer writes. I can't wait for more stories in this series and more Micalea books in general!

Excerpt



Unedited and subject to change.



Holy mother of all hangovers.



I’d succumbed to the lure of Vegas and gotten completely wasted. Granted, that’s what everyone did in Las Vegas but I like to think I usually have more sense than the social norm.



I rub my eyes and blink them open. The hotel room comes into formation around me. The walls are a warm golden color and the flat screen on the wall plays some home improvement show. I can see the bathroom from the bed, the tiled walls and large soaking tub.



I roll over onto my side, hoping I can sleep off the hangover, and reel back.



“Oh my God,” I cry, flailing in bed.



My legs kick the sleeping guy beside me.



Not just any sleeping guy.



Oh no.



Xander Kincaid, my brother’s best friend, lays in the bed beside me.



His dark hair tumbles over his forehead and his cheeks are covered with several days worth of scruff. His chest is bare and…holy shit. He’s naked.



I look down.



Oh God, I’m naked too.



“What’s wrong?” He asks, reaching his left hand out to pull me closer to him. That’s when I see it.



“Is that a wedding band?” I scream shrilly.



His eyes narrow. “You don’t fucking remember?”



I shake my head and look at my own hand. A thin silver band rests on my finger. “What did we do?”



He sits up in bed and I try to ignore how adorably rumpled he looks with his hair sticking up.



Everything begins flooding back to me in quick bursts.



Drinks.

Kissing.

Laughter.

Confessions of love and desire.

A wedding chapel.

Vows.

Rings.

A contract.
 



“We’re married,” I whisper. “Holy shit.” It’s all I’ve ever wanted—to be with Xander, but not like this. Never like this. “My brother is going to kill us.”





Also Available





Book One in the series. Cade and Rae’s story.
Can be read as a standalone.

Currently FREE everywhere.
 



What
I remember the most about that day was that it was completely ordinary.
Then with one stupid decision everything fell apart and nothing was
ever the same.




Rae Wilder wants nothing but a do over—but
life doesn’t work that way. She’s stuck living out the consequences of
her actions. At times the burden feels unbearable.
College is supposed to be her second chance.
New place.
New people.
New life.
No one to know what she did.
Despite that, she has still vowed to avoid everyone and everything at all costs.
Unfortunately for her, an accidental run-in with the campus heartthrob, Cade Montgomery, derails that plan.

He’s determined to thaw the ice around her heart and expose the girl
she used to be. He wants to show her that life is worth living for and
that she really is a Rae of Sunshine.

The Debt by Karina Halle Release Blitz!







the debt 0 days (1)



The Debt AMAZON

Her life changed in an instant.

And he's the only one who could have prevented it.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Pact and The Lie comes a new standalone contemporary romance about those McGregor men.

Jessica Charles shouldn't have even been in London when the unthinkable happened.

She should have been back at home in Edinburgh, perhaps hanging with her boyfriend, having drinks with her sister or doing yoga with her group of friends. She should have been going on in her normal, dependable life as always.

But on that fateful day in August, when a mentally-ill ex-soldier opened fire in public, Jessica's world changed forever.

Now single and crippled from the gunshot wounds, Jessica finds herself scared and alone, losing faith in herself and humanity with each agonizing moment that passes.

That is until a stranger enters her life. A stranger who makes her live again.

Keir McGregor has always been the strong, silent type. Throw in tall, dark, and handsome and you've got pretty much the perfect Scotsman.

Except Keir is anything but perfect. He's got a past he's running away from and a guilty conscience he can't seem to shed. But the more time he spends with Jessica, the more he falls in love with her.

And the more his secret threatens to tear them apart.

He may have been a stranger to her.

But she’s never been a stranger to him.

“You’re not going anywhere,” he says. “Sit. I’ll get you another drink.”



“It’s getting late,” I say feebly but I sit down anyway, my leg giving a protest of pain.



“You need something for that?” he says, noticing my wince.



“The scotch will do fine,” I tell him quickly, not wanting him to make a fuss. “But really, I should go.”



“Why?” he asks from the kitchen. I hear the top pop off the bottle, the slosh of liquid in the glass. “Where do you have to be?”



I have to think about that for a moment. He comes over and holds out the glass. “I won’t keep you here if you don’t want to be here. But if you do want to be here, you don’t need to make any excuses.”



I take the glass from him, holding it delicately in my fingers. He stands over me, a massive wall, waiting for some kind of response.



“I just…” I begin. “I…” I take a sip for bravery. Swallow. “I’m not very good at this.”



“Good at what?”



“At…this. Being with a man.”



When he doesn’t say anything to that, I look up at him. He’s got a peculiar smile on his face, his brows raised. “You call this being with a man?”



I clear my throat, feeling my cheeks grow hot. “I mean. I’ve told you before –”



“Yes, how you don’t do relationships, how you don’t do sex.”



“I never said I don’t do sex,” I remind him quickly.



His eyes never stop searching my face. “Then what is it? What are you afraid to say?”



I have the sudden urge to flee and I know it must show because he suddenly points at me and says, “Don’t you dare say you have to go again. I want you to go back to what you said, that you’re not good at this. What is this? Us? You and me? There’s nothing mystifying about you and me, Jessica. You know quite well how I feel.”



I stare at him in shock. I do? “How?”



He looks off with an air of impatience. “I invited you to dinner, you turned me down.”



“But then you said just as friends.”



“And I meant it. But there are different types of friends. It’s up to you to decide what kind we are.”



I put my drink down with a clunk. “Holy pressure.” And now it’s not just my face going hot but my entire body, flushed from head to toe.



“You’re on fire, little red,” he says, his gaze skirting over my limbs in such a hungry way I can almost feel them on my skin. “I have to say, I like this look on you. Hot and bothered.”



“Back with the innuendos again,” I comment but my voice is weak.



“No, no innuendos this time. You came looking for me tonight not because you wanted to confess but because you want something from me. What is it? What do you want from me? What do you think I can give you?”



Jesus. This is so utterly unnerving. His words slice right through me, his eyes still peeling under the layers, trying to get at something I’m not even sure of myself.



If I lie, he’ll know. I can only be honest with him.



“I want…” I take in a deep breath, my eyes breaking away. “I want…company.”



“Company?” He sounds surprised.



I nod. “That’s the truth. I’m lonely. And I’m afraid. And I’m tired of being both those things. I want to be with someone who makes me forget who I am. You make me feel fearless in a way I didn’t think possible.”



There. That’s the truth. Most of it. It hangs in the air, thickening the tension like flour to stock.



He sits down next to me, has a mouthful of Scotch. “Wow,” he says, running his hand over the beard on his jaw. “And here I was thinking you wanted my cock.”



I burst out laughing. So does he, a big wonderful bellow. The tension in the room eases up a notch.



“Sorry,” I tell him when I catch my breath. “I guess they can both mean the same thing.”



He sucks in his lip briefly, his eyes taking a lustful turn. “If you want it to.” We stare at each other for a few heavy beats. Then his focus trails back to my gaze and he says, “Why don’t you stay over?”



And there I have it. The chance to know what those full lips would feel like on mine, what his skin would taste like. I swallow hard.

Stolen Moments by S.I Hayes and J. Haney Release Blitz!

























Stolen Moments
by S.I. Hayes & J. Haney
Release Blitz
Contemporary New Adult Romance













Fallon Hopkins is a good country girl. She’s twenty-three, and spends her time
taking care of her family, the Farm and going to the Local Farmer’s Markets to
sell her sweet confections. This leaves little room for anything else. Her life
is happy if not a little boring.

Justin Blackthorne is a New York City transplant, having come to Kentucky to
dislodge the silver spoon from his foul mouth. He’s seems like a party boy,
covered in tattoos, and piercings, with a life style to match.

Enter
Joseph Hopkins Fallon’s meddling father, after meeting Justin he decides the
boy may just be the thing to get his daughter out of the farm house and into
the real world. Enlisting the aid of his youngest son Peter they force the pair
to interact even after a disastrous first meeting.

The pair
quickly find they have less to fight about and more to fight for, when the
brothers try to keep them apart. Can they conquer the bonds of family or will
it all just be Stolen Moments?








"Holy shit, darling, you’re so
wet," he whispers, his excitement showing in his voice. He glides in a
second finger and continues his action, leaning down to lick my semi exposed
clit. I didn't think it was possible, but I am getting even wetter, I want
more, so much more. The second I start moaning loudly he stops, bringing his
mouth back up to mine and kissing me. His mouth smells like me and there is a
hint of my juices on his tongue as he kisses me. He briefly slips his fingers
inside me, then brings them back out again.
I grunt in frustration and he just grins
at me.
"You like that?" he asks
cheekily. I just kiss him. Using his left hand, he spreads my soft bare pussy
lips, his fingertips teasing my slippery slit. He gently pushes in, then out.
"Faster," I pant.
I start to moan, all of the Earths air
seems to be filling my lungs then spilling right out again. He reaches down and
places his wet tongue over my clit as he fucks me with his fingers. I try to
spread my legs, but he holds me in place, my hot pussy swallowing his delectable
fingers as they go in and slurping as he pulls them back out again. His tongue
is adding a different sort of pleasure, lightly probing my clit and teasing it.
I run my fingers through his hair and push his head down, he sucks on my little
button and I begin grinding against his face and fingers.
I’m moaning like a mad woman. I haven’t
experienced anything like it before. The powerful sensations are driving me
crazy, he rams his fingers in and out and I can tell he is incredibly turned on
because he’s getting rough with it, which adds to the pleasure he is giving me.
"Ohhhh! Myyyy! Goddddd!" I
shout as I dig my nails into his scalp. he keeps finger fucking me. He
positions himself so he can give it to me harder, faster.
"JUSTIN!" I moan. His movements
get quicker and he is making little noises that are inflaming the pleasure I’m
feeling. He adds pressure to my clit and rubs it with a sense of urgency.
The feeling is amazing, I feel like I
have died and gone to Heaven. Instinctively I start to grind harder on his face
and fingers. I feel the pleasure build up in my pussy. We are still picking up
speed, hard and rough. I am moaning uncontrollably again. Pure ecstasy.
“Ohhh. God, Justin! That’s it! Oh. Fuck.
I’m going to come!” I break into a million tiny pieces. Justin laps at me till
I quit shaking then makes his way back up the bed to me. He lays beside me,
pulling me to him and kissing me on the head.
“That was all for you darling. Just for
you,” he whispers as I tremble in his arms.
“Just… For me…” I whisper as my eyes
grow heavy and I drift off to sleep.
