Cover Reveal: THE HOT SPOT by Kristen Callihan!

the hot shot release date   TheHotShot Amazon-2      

TheHotShot Amazon-2First we were friends. Then we were roommates. Now I want more…

What can I say about Chess Copper? The woman is capable of bringing me to my knees. I know this about five minutes after getting naked for her.

No one is more surprised than me. The prickly photographer my team hired to shoot our annual charity calendar isn’t my usual type. She’s defense to my offense, a challenge at every turn. But when I’m with her, all the regrets and darkness goes away. She makes life fun.

I want to know Chess, be close to her. Which is a bad idea.

Chess is looking for a relationship. I’ve never given a woman more than one night. But when fate leaves Chess without a home, I step up and offer her mine. We’re roommates now. Friends without benefits. But it’s getting harder to keep our hands off each other. And the longer we live together the more I realize she’s becoming my everything.

Trick is… Now that I’ve made her believe I’m a bad bet, how do I convince her to give this player a true shot at forever?

Review: kINKED edited by Cori Vidae!

Release Date: March 14th, 2017

Type: Anthology, Short Stories, BDSM, Tattoos, Contemporary, Fantasy, Science Fiction

About the Book: Every tattoo tells a story...

A submissive pain slut receives a tattoo as a reward for years of selfless service. A man's body is used to deliver a very different kind of message to a domineering masochist. An exotic teahouse on an alien planet where one woman explores her submissiveness with a set of shapeshifting twins.

These and other sizzling stories take you to the places where kink meets ink and leave you indelibly marked.
  [Description from]
My Review: Anthologies are always a little hit and miss. Not everything can be exactly your style, right? And that's true here - but I have to say.. every story in this anthology was excellent. Even the stories I didn't necessarily like or get into, they were still incredibly written. For those that took place in different worlds or different time periods, the authors did a fantastic job giving the reader a scene of place and world building, even within such a short story. I couldn't put this book down. It was a one-sitting read for me, because each story was just as good as the last.

I'm going to highlight a few of my favorites..
My absolute favorite has to be Sae-ri by Nicole Blackwood. I thought the world this author created was amazing, and definitely very, very hot. I would love to see more in this setting, and even just more by this author. She has another short story in another anthology, so I might have to check it out.
Begin Again by Tiffany Michelle Brown was another one I really enjoyed.
And finally, Inkarnate by Mara Malins - another one I really got into from the very beginning.

So be sure to check out kINKED, edited by Cori Vidae! I know I have some BDSM and Tattoo-loving readers.. this is right up your alley!

Cover Lovin': Oh my. *Fans self*

Recommendation: You need to love your stories hot!

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)! I loved this anthology, and even the stories that didn't "rev my engine," so to speak, were still beautifully written. Definitely worth a read!

Happy Reading!

As the owner of The Wicked Horse, an elite sex club located along the Vegas Strip, Jerico Jameson never spends the night alone.

So when the sister of his sworn enemy shows up asking for help, saying no should be easy. But when Jerico takes one look at her and sees an opportunity to help this beautiful woman while exacting revenge on her brother, he’s not about to pass that up. Beaten and bruised, Trista Barnes is running out of options, and Jerico is her last chance to get out of the mess she’s in. She doesn’t know why Jerico despises her brother so much, but as long as he can help her, she doesn’t care. Jerico offers her safety while opening her up to a sinful world she never knew existed. As she succumbs to Jerico’s erotic charm, Trista lets herself fall into the wicked world of guilt free pleasure with no regrets. Under his strong alpha hand, she blooms, and so does Jerico’s possessiveness.

Review: PLAY MATE by Kendall Ryan!


My Review:  I was hooked as soon as I read the description for this book. Brother's best friend/best friend's little sister is one of my favorite romance tropes. And Kendall Ryan is a master at it. She manages to give readers what they want - the history, the attraction, and the familial tension - all while making it original and sexy. 

There was a lot I liked about this book, but I'm going to highlight my two favorite things. Evie knew what she wanted, and she was going to go for it. I respected her for knowing her mind, and doing whatever it takes to get what she wants. And I loved Smith's dedication to the relation between him and Evie, as well as his friendship with her brother. As much as he wanted to drag her to the bedroom, he wanted her to feel special, and he wanted to respect his relationship with her brother. So he took things slow and steady. And that build up of tension over the course of the book? Hot as heck.

Cover Lovin': How could I not love this cover? Yum!

Recommendation: No prior knowledge necessary!

Final Rating:   FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)! Loved this - Kendall Ryan has another hit on her hands!

Happy Reading!

    the-play-mate-kendall-ryanSmith Hamilton has it all—he's smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he's not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm's length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him. Evie Reed knows she's blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family's lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She's crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way. Except that when Evie's plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.

Promo: CHASING DAYS by Deirdre Riordan Hall!

Chasing Days by Deirdre Riordan Hall

Genre: Contemporary Fiction // Age Group: Young Adult

TAG LINE: Two weeks until graduation, two best friends struggling with their identities, and two secrets that are bigger than they both are; everything is about to change, epically.

Two-weeks until Willa Wohlbreuk graduates.

Fourteen-days left for exams and senior pranks.

Three hundred-thirty-six-hours for friendships to unravel and to fall in and out of love.

Twenty thousand-one-hundred-sixty-minutes left to go wild and grow up.

And one million two-hundred-nine-thousand-six-hundred-seconds to figure out what freedom really means.

Willa faces her best friend Teddy—Theo now—as he defies his parents and reveals something about himself she never expected. Joss appears with blue hair and stirs things up. And Grady, finally, after four years, suddenly knows Willa’s name. Meanwhile, the undercurrent of uncertainty about the future dredges up the possibility that Willa isn’t even sure who she is. All she knows is life is about to change, epically.

A story of identity and fitting in, friendship and love, living with uncertainty and sexual awakening for fans of Keeping you a Secret by Julie Anne Peters, Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour, Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson, and I'll Give you the Sun by Jandy Nelson.

“Are oysters really an aphrodisiac? It seems like eating one would be like inhaling giant gobs of mucous.”
Teddy closes one eye, squints the other, and sticks out his tongue. “When you put it like that, nasty. But I suppose anything can make for the sexy time. Also, I can’t help it if I think with my stomach. The lobster rolls at the Clam Shack are the bomb.”
When we pull into the parking lot at Puckett High School, Grady O'Rourke slams the door of a truck that looks like he stole it from a scrap yard. The kind plucky kids dance and drum on top of in a spirited musical; the lively productions my dad digs. He's a film and theater buff.
In some circles, Grady has the reputation for being the sort of guy who thinks with the part of his anatomy that lives south of his stomach. He cruises across the lawn with his backpack lazily slung over one shoulder. He nods at a group and fist bumps a couple of his friends. The way his jeans hang from his hips and how his strong shoulders rise and fall as he laughs would make me swoon if it wouldn’t result in Teddy laughing at me for days afterward. I'm not really that kind of girl anyway, and yet my inner tide laps foreign shores.
Nonetheless, Teddy's radar is finely honed. He catches me ogling. He laughs at me anyway. “Really? His Royal Hotness, still? Even after the rumor Layla Leonard gave him crabs?” Teddy asks.
I ignore him. I can’t explain it, but Grady is the singular guy at Puckett that I’m attracted to and since my life has been one long dry spell, I white-knuckle the possibility of a him and a me. It’s never really mattered before that I’m a virgin and only had a boyfriend once in tenth grade that I made out with a few times. A few slimy-tongue, drool-everywhere times. His fault, not mine. Also, the thing about crabs was a poorly timed joke that turned into a misunderstanding during his shift at the Clam Shack. I casually had it confirmed by multiple sources.
There are only two weeks of senior year left. What else do I have to show for four years in high school? Decent grades? A functional understanding of ingrained stereotypes and social structure? A dislike for soggy tater tots? A mastery of isotopes and cell division? Two best friends?
Teddy thumbs the steering wheel, distracted. He’s probably fantasizing about Jerusha just like I am about Grady…and Joss. Last night on the futon sofa in the living room rushes back with a pleasantly warm sensation between my thighs. But I can’t tell Teddy because I can hardly admit it to myself. Anyway, he’d have to go first. He called dibs on homosexuality without actually calling dibs. I feel kind of like a cell-dividing mutant with mismatched furniture and a tidal wave of confusion. Did that make any sense? Not really. I'm beginning to think change tends not to.

Deirdre Riordan Hall is the author of the young adult bestsellers, Sugar and Pearl along with the Follow your Bliss series. When she's not writing, she's probably surfing or in pursuit of magic. She also has a healthy case of wanderlust, loves chips and salsa, and dreams about learning no less than three languages. Join her monthly newsie.
