Release Blitz: Shameless - M. Malone and Nana Malone


 


 
I am the thing that goes bump in the night. I am a liar, a protector...a killer...I am Noah Blake.
There is only one light in my darkness, one bright ray in the storm of my life. Lucia DeMarco. And I’ll do anything for her. Anything except show her who I really am...an assassin. Well, former assassin. I don’t really do that anymore...usually.
It would be easier if she didn’t call me names. Asshole, control freak…shameless. It would also be easier if she didn’t look at me with those trusting gray eyes. If I didn’t dream about the perfect curve of her — never mind all that. The point is she’s digging into my world, my secrets, and it’s going to get her killed.
But first, we have another more immediate concern. Lucia is going on a date—With someone else...

Review
Noah Blake promised his best friend that he would take care of his family as he watched him take his last breath. Little did he know that the little sister would be the hardest task for him to take care, only because he would rather take care of her in a unique way that his best friend probably did not mean. Noah has spent years running off no good potential suitors and following Lucia DeMarco’s every step to make sure she stays safe.
Little does Noah know, Lucia is on her own mission. She is digging deeper and deeper into the past of her deceased brother, trying to find out what really happened to him all those years ago. All the while, Lucia is trying to have a social life and for whatever reason that seems to be failing at every date. After she gets embarrassed, yet again, by Noah and his antics Lucia has reached the last straw. Unfortunately for her, Noah isn’t going to give up so easy.

There is something about the story line of the brother’s best friend falling for the little sister. It just warms my heart. Maybe because it’s a touch of taboo and we all know Taboo is the way to my heart. Combine taboo, some humor, lots of hot scenes, an alpha male, and you have a very happy Lauren! M. Malone always drags me in with her first chapter and then has be turning the pages well into the night when I should be sleeping! I can’t even be mad at her because her work is just that worth it. I promise you will not regret this book!- Lauren










 





 

 


M. Malone
NYT & USA Today Bestselling author M. Malone lives in the Washington, DC metro area with her three favorite guys, her husband and their two sons. She holds a Master's degree in Business from a prestigious college that would no doubt be scandalized at how she's using her expensive education.
Independently published, she has sold more than 1/2 million ebooks in her two series THE ALEXANDERS and BLUE-COLLAR BILLIONAIRES. Since starting her indie journey in 2011 with the runaway bestselling novella "Teasing Trent", her work has appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists more than a dozen times.
She's now a full-time writer and spends 99.8% of her time in her pajamas.
Nana Malone
USA Today Best Seller, Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she "borrowed" from her cousin.
It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

Release Blitz: Somebody Else's Sky - Jessica Hawkins




Title: Somebody Else's Sky
Series: Something in the Way #2
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2017

Blurb

If I closed my eyes, I could still see them—all blonde sunshine, ocean-blue eyes, and long limbs. The glint of Lake’s gold bracelet. Pink cotton candy on Tiffany’s tongue. My scenery may have changed from heaven to hell, but some things never would: my struggle to do right by both sisters. To let Lake soar. To lift Tiffany up. The sacrifices I made for them, I made willingly.
A better man would’ve walked away by now, but I never claimed to be any good. I only promised myself I’d keep enough distance. If I’d learned one thing from my past, it was that love came in different forms. You could love passionately, hurt deep, die young. Or you could provide the kind of firm, steady support someone else could lean on.
Lake was everything I wanted, and nothing I could ever have. I was nobody before I knew her and a criminal after. The way to love her was to let her shine—even if it would be for somebody else.
Book two in the Something in the Way series, an epic, 3-book saga of forbidden love...

Review

There’s something amazing about a book that makes you uncomfortable, one that makes you question your idea of happily ever after.  And that’s exactly what Jessica Hawkins did with me in Somebody Else’s Sky.  Is loving someone enough to conquer all?  This book made me uncomfortable, made me think, made me question and I absolutely loved it.

Starting off ten months after the first book, Somebody Else’s Sky continues the story of Manning, Tiffany, and Lake.  Manning has changed, that’ll happen to anyone in his situation.  He’s intensely retrospective and reflective.  He’s bigger, stronger, and determined to do what’s best for all involved.  Tiffany is loyal, stood by Manning in difficult circumstances, and surprisingly I began to like her.  I didn’t care for her much in the first book, but Manning is definitely having a positive influence on her.  Lake is still under the same pressure, still na├»ve and clueless, and feeling a ton of guilt.  I have to admit that she really annoyed me in this book.  The situation was already hard and intense, but her cluelessness made things worse.  I wanted to shake her and tell her to wake the fuck up.  Hopefully college will do that.


This book was one big ball of drama, it was intense and a tad angsty but all in a good way.  I was tense the whole time reading it, my heart pounding and feeling like I was on the edge of my seat.  My heart broke for Manning.  I felt for him big time, life was just one big suck for him.  This is definitely a series that everyone’s going to want to pick up.  Hawkins is a skilled storyteller that kept me utterly captivated with this book.  I cannot wait for the next one to come out.  I want to see how it all ends.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J

Release Blitz: Good Lies - Charlotte West


Blurb

"If Warren Price was gasoline, I'd be a lit match."

Addison Wanks, rock 'n' roll's favorite daughter, is good at keeping secrets.

Secret One
She's responsible for the long-standing feud between her father's band, Wanks and Janks, and younger band Wild Minds. She may or may not have let Wild Minds' sexy bad-boy lead singer Warren defile her backstage at a concert.
Okay, she totally did.

Secret Two
She's supposed to be attending college but instead skips town to follow Wild Minds on their European tour. Addy adores Warren Price.

Secret Three
Europe doesn't go so well. Her sexy lead singer turned out to be king of a**holes. He's arrogant, demanding and controlling. Addy loathes Warren Price.
Oh, well.

Secret Four
A few years later, Addy is planning to attend her father's farewell tour when she hears the news—Wild Minds is back in the good graces of Wanks and Janks. The two bands will be headlining together. This is going to make avoiding Warren difficult. Especially since it seems Warren doesn't want to be ignored. He also doesn't want a divorce. That's right, Addy is married to the Wild Minds front man.
Sh. Don't tell anyone.
What will happen when all Addy's secrets are revealed?

Excerpt

Putting my head down, I decided to follow Ash. After all, Warren had said, "Get out," to everybody. I was only respecting his wishes. That was nice of me. Considerate. I'd even collect my bags at a later time. Scratch that. I'd just buy all-new stuff. I'd use Billy's card. He'd like that. Daisy could go shopping with me.

My arm grazed Warren's. Heat pricked along my side at the contact. He stayed as still as a statue, his body taut and tense. He was going to let me pass. Thank you very much. I was almost home free. Until his hand shot out and wrapped around my upper arm, his grip tight enough to halt me but not tight enough to hurt me. I could feel the warmth from his palm through my damp sweatshirt, burning me, branding me.

"Not you," he said, his voice hardening.
      
I shuffled back into the bunks, forcing him to let go. His stare went to my heaving chest. It felt as if the temperature had skyrocketed a thousand degrees.
      
Warren advanced. His nostrils flared and his septum piercing, a thin silver band, flashed in the low light.
      
I stepped back until I was pressed against a sliver of wall. Dammit, why'd they have to make these spaces so tight? Warren kept coming until he was flush against my front. I fisted his shirt. To push him away or bring him closer, I didn't know. Then his fingers were in my belt loops, pressing me into him. I could feel his desire for me, his hardness against my stomach.
      
"Warren…" I started.
He closed his eyes. "Fuck, I've dreamt about you saying my name. Say it again," he demanded. Always so bossy.
      
"Warren," I said again, this time more firmly.
He didn't understand my tone or he chose to ignore it. Probably the latter. His head lowered and then his lips crashed against mine. He cupped the nape of my neck and begged entrance into my mouth with his tongue.

Something inside of me broke free. A need so fierce it bulldozed all my common sense, all my reasons against this, everything I'd kept tightly reined in for the last few years. I yielded to him. His mouth tasted like whiskey and chocolate, two of my favorite things. Warren groaned and it was like a tiny earthquake inside of me, the vibration snaking down to my belly and igniting desire between my legs. As if he sensed it, his kiss became hotter, wetter, more demanding.

Somehow, my hands found their way under his thin t-shirt, caressing his abs. Cool air hit my stomach and then the tops of my breasts. Warren was stripping me. He broke the kiss for one second to whip my sweatshirt and t-shirt over my head. Then he was back on me, his tongue in my mouth, his body shifting down and up, forcing my legs to wrap around his waist to keep balance.

He rubbed against my core. I made a guttural sound. His lips withdrew and then plastered to my neck. Oh, God, he still knew my sweet spot, right behind my ear he licked and whispered, "I knew you'd come back to me. I knew it."

What? A cold sensation crept along my spine. Warren didn't notice. He sucked the thin skin on my collarbone. I almost forgot what he'd just said but then he opened his big fat mouth again. "Are you sorry for what you did? Leaving me in Rome?" He kissed a wet trail down to the top of my breast. "You want me back, don't you? Jesus, I should make you beg but I don't think I'm going to last."
