#ReleaseBlitz: Coma by Zak Hardacre @ZakHardacre #Excerpt #Trailer

Zak Hardacre is a new author to me and seriously, why did you people not tell me about him sooner?! I have added some back catalogue books to that toppling TBR of mine as well as this new release Coma…my fellow erotic romance fans you HAVE to check this out, the excerpts below are hotter than they have any right to be. This is a MMMF novel with some hardcore BDSM, and from the small amount I’ve read this man knows what he is talking about…I do hate it when authors make this shit up! OK….enjoy people!

Description

“The worst memory was when I was still in a coma and I could feel people hold my hand.  I could feel the nurses bathing me, but I couldn’t move or open my eyes.  I just couldn’t do anything and it was terrifying!”

Xavier Prince wakes in a hospital bed on a Caribbean island. He has no idea how he got there, or in fact who the hell he is. When his Doctor informs him that he is quite the celebrity, he is determined to uncover his past.

Having only brief recollections, his search is aided by the appearance of a Nordic beauty called Freya. Along with her brother, Lars, they ignite something in his subconscious and he begins his path of self-discovery.

A club, bizarre sexual activities and demonstrations. A world far removed from his rather quiet and sedentary childhood. The death of his father, and the benefit of a healthy inheritance, launch him into the world of business.

The alien world of BDSM was a business venture and was something he never saw coming. He takes the opportunity with both hands. With the guidance of his mentor, Anton, he quickly rises to become one of the most popular Doms on the UK scene.

Clearing his mind of all pre-conceptions, he embraces this new lifestyle. Yet love, jealousy and betrayal stalk his clouded past. Perhaps they are the reason for his current situation? Will peeling away the layers of time uncover who on earth is Xavier Prince?Coma - Blitz Banner

Excerpt

I approach her until the stiffness of my cock makes contact with her buttocks. I hold myself there a moment, delighting in the sensation that ripples through my groin. Freya forces herself back against me, eager to feel my swollen meat against her clit. I lean over her bent body and ensure the blindfold is still tight around her head. Her hands still take her weight against the wall. With her back horizontal and arse thrust out, she is in the perfect position for me to administer the flogging.

“Now precious…you need to stay real still. Did the leather not feel good on your body? Did you not feel the fire? You need this, my pet, the hot burning of the leather on your skin. I will teach you to love the taste of this fire.” I move my lips so that they are only inches away from her ear and whisper the words.

I begin to breathe deeply in anticipation for what is to come. I draw the handle against her clit and pull it back, so that it is coated with her juices. Then I step back and makes sure my grip is firm. I give her a playful tap against her right arse cheek. It causes her to jump as the leather tails are fanned across the roundness of her buttock, jarring her mind back slightly, she stills, listening. A soft whisper as I slap the flogger lightly across her arse again. Her arse quivers under its touch, and I feel myself stiffen at the sight.

I draw the flogger away and taking a half a step further away, measure the distance. The distance is good. It swishes through the air, splaying the leather strips across her ass slightly harder, causing her to gasp. I hear a sharp intake of breath from behind me, and turn to see Cindy licking her lips. Anton smiles and nods. It is the first time that I had been alerted to the fact that they were still standing there. I return my attention to Freya.

Her body has stiffened getting accustomed to the stinging needles of pain, as the heat mingles with her own rolling and viciously caged fire. I reach forward and rub her clit, then strike her once more with the flogger. The falls wrap around her hips and inner thighs. They produce fresh welts on her milky white skin.

“Trust me, precious, let go of your fear and just experience this.” As I speak, I move the handle slowly between her thighs and run it along her hot, wet lips, letting the rawhide rub across her clit.

“Yes, Sir.” Her response is immediate and wanton.

The falls strike her fully across both cheeks. She gasps again, calling out loudly. As the stripes begin to sting, she drops her head against the mirror. The pain rages a war with the pleasure and passion she must be feeling. I watch and sense her body react to each stroke now. Each one more forceful than the last. Her mind must be searching, needing to understand how she can feel such excitement as the pain increases.

“Are you ready to cum?” I cease the flogging and insert my hand over her mound, teasing her clit with my thumb.

“Yes, I’m ready, Sir”. Her reply is a panted whisper.

Pumping my fingers slowly, deep inside her pussy keeping her right on the edge, her moans are building softly and urgently. I strike her ass twice in quick succession and she convulses. Her whole body is shaking as I bring her over the edge. Arousal begins to form together, edging along with the pain.

“You need to cum right now. So cum for me!” Whimpering and sobbing she nods and moans. Begging for Him to let her cum, let the orgasm he has been holding on edge all night, break free.

“Yes, Sir! Make me cum!”

“Then cum for me, my pet.” I growl the words, while stroking her g-spot and clit together.

#BookBlitz: Father Figure by James J. Cudney @jamescudney4 @shanannigans81 #Excerpt #Giveaway

I’m super excited to share this post with you, I was a beta reader for Father Figure and the author James Cudney is a very good friend. I can tell you that this book is outstanding and from the outset weaves a web of mystery which is laced with romance, drama and suspense. My review is coming soon but in the mean time don’t miss out on this fantastic novel!

 

Description

Between the fast-paced New York City, a rural Mississippi town, and a charming Pennsylvania college campus filled with secrets, two young girls learn the consequences of growing up too quickly. Struggling to survive in a claustrophobic, unforgiving world, they embark on a journey to overcome all the pain, disappointment, and horror of their experiences.

Amalia Graeme, abused by her mother for most of her life, longs to escape her desolate hometown, connect with others, and fall in love. Contemplating an impending loss of innocence and conflicting feelings between her boyfriend and the dangerous attraction she’s developed for an older man, Amalia suffers devastating, life-altering tragedies. No matter where she turns, someone or something always steals her hope of finding happiness, protection, and love.

Brianna Porter, a sassy yet angst-ridden teenager raised in New York City, yearns to determine her life’s true purpose, conquer her fear of abandonment, and interpret an intimidating desire for her best friend, Shanelle. All the confusion stems from desperately needing to find the father whom her mother refuses to reveal, but an unexpected discovery of a journal leads Brianna to a shocking revelation about her missing parent. Unfortunately, by casting the net to find him, she’s unleashed a tragic history that was meant to stay buried and might now completely change everyone’s futures.

Through alternating chapters set two decades apart, each girl’s plight unfolds revealing the parallels between their lives and the subsequent collision that is bound to happen. In an emotional story filled with mystery, romance, and suspense, fate intervenes forcing someone to make a dreadful decision that will leave permanent scars.

Father Figure - Blitz Banner

Excerpt

As Amalia leaned in toward Carter expecting him to reach for it with his hand, a devilish gleam in his eyes appeared. “You’re not gonna try to pull me in, are you?” She suppressed a wary giggle deep in her gut. Or maybe it was excitement. She wasn’t sure.

 

 

“Did you want to come in the water with me?”

 

 

Amalia pulled her bottom lip inside her mouth, running her top teeth over it, contemplating how to respond. “I don’t have a swimsuit.” She lifted her hand in his direction, her fingers still nimbly holding a small piece of the sandwich. “Here, take it.”

 

 

Carter raised himself a few inches higher and brought his mouth to her impatiently waiting fingers. His full lips gently sealed the temporarily open gap between them. Amalia’s hand, uncertain what he was doing, twitched. Carter reached up with his right arm while his other held his body against the dock. He enveloped her hand with his, steadying her fingers near his lips as he slipped the morsel in his mouth. Swallowing the length of her index finger and thumb, he pulled back with delicate ease. When he reached the tip of her fingers, he paused and immersed himself in her eyes. “You taste delicious.” Carter blinked in slow motion for what could have been thirty seconds but had barely been two or three.

 

 

“You mean the sandwich does.” Amalia traced her finger against the soft patch of skin above his chin. His face was as smooth as her own flesh. A shiver meandered the curves of her dampening back.

 

 

“If you say so.” Carter pulled himself fully out of the water landing near the other side of the dock. Barely two feet separated them, but he was careful not to drip any water on her a second time.

 

As he laid across the wooden planks dropping a handful of chips in his mouth, Amalia’s eyes lingered on his torso noticing not a single spot of hair on his chest or stomach. But Carter didn’t have a stomach. He had a set of eight curved ridges that spanned the distance from his sternum to the top of his black trunks, a solid washboard of muscle. His dark swimsuit highlighted a sharp contrast to his golden skin leaving her increasingly curious about what lurked beneath the trunks. She’d noticed other guys without their shirts, but none resembled Carter. Her hand quivered at the thought of his body nestled against hers. Amalia closed her eyes, then forced herself to look away, certain she shouldn’t extend the reach of her fingers to his flesh.

 

 

“How’s the water?” She stared in the opposite direction fumbling with the button on her blouse. The heat had begun to break down her barriers. Amalia considered taking off her shoes and dipping her feet into the lake. There wasn’t any danger in showing…

About James J. Cudney

James Cudney - Author Image

James is my given name; most call me Jay. I grew up on Long Island and currently live in New York City, but I’ve traveled all across the US (and various parts of the world). After college, I spent 15 years working in technology and business operations in the sports, entertainment and media industries. Although I enjoyed my job, I left in 2016 to focus on my passion: telling stories and connecting people through words. My debut novel is ‘Watching Glass Shatter,’ a contemporary fiction family drama with elements of mystery, suspense, humor and romance. To see samples or receive news from my current and upcoming books, please subscribe with your email address at my website: https://jamesjcudney.com

What do I do outside of writing: I’m an avid genealogist (discovered 2K family members going back about 250 years) and cook (I find it so hard to follow a recipe). I love to read; between Goodreads and my blog at https://thisismytruthnow.com, I have over 500 book reviews which will give you a full flavor for my voice and style. On my blog, I started the 365 Daily Challenge, where I post a word each day that has some meaning to me, then converse with everyone about life. There is humor, tears, love, friendship, advice and bloopers. Lots of bloopers where I poke fun at myself all the time. Even my dog has a weekly segment called “Ryder’s Rants” where he complains about me. All these things make up who I am; none of them are very fancy or magnanimous, but they are real and show how I live every day.

A bit of humor: Everything doubles as something else when you live in NYC. For me, it’s the dining room, my favorite space in the apartment, where more than just my cooking is on display! As I look out the windows onto a 12th floor terrace, various parts of nature (trees, bushes, flowers, bugs & animals) inspire me to write. Ryder, my 10-year old shiba inu, usually lays on my feet, growling when I shift positions too many times or when I forget to share my food! Although he’s only 20 pounds, he’s quite strong and pushy. But how else can you pen the best story possible without these things by your side?

#BookBlitz: Cross Your Heart by Kierney Scott @Kierney_S @bookouture #Review

I’m super pleased to welcome you to my stop on the book blitz for Cross Your Heart by Kierney Scott. This is a mega blitz so check out some of the other stops all listed on the banner below.

Cross Your Heart is the second book in the Detective Jessica Bishop series, if you missed my review of the first book Forget Me Not check it out here.

Description

Blinking her eyes open, she looks around the room, taking in the bed and the wardrobe full of clothes she’s never seen before. This isn’t her bedroom. Those aren’t her clothes. She begins to cry as she wonders if she’ll ever see her own home again.

Three young girls are missing. All of them cold cases. All of them forgotten. But when Detective Jess Bishop identifies a disturbing link between them, she’s determined to find out what happened, and fights to re-open their cases.

At the scene of each abduction the kidnapper left a clue – a small bag of candy – in place of the missing child.

And then a fourth child is taken. Eight-year-old Ava is snatched from her hospital bed and when a bag of candy is found in her room, Jessica knows it’s the same kidnapper.

As the pressure to solve the case pushes Jess and her team to breaking point, Jess takes a personal risk she fears she’ll live to regret. But she has no choice.

Out of hospital, Ava can only get sicker: Jess is running out of time. Can she find Ava before it’s too late?

An absolutely gripping thriller that will have your pulse racing. Cross Your Heart is perfect for fans of Robert Dugoni, Karin Slaughter and Lisa Gardner. Cross Your Heart - Blitz Banner

Review

I rarely read this genre, I’m happy to put my hands up and say it scares the bejeezus out of me so I’m happy not to subject myself to it too often. I make exceptions for a couple of authors though and Kierney Scott is one of those authors. I’ve read Cross Your Heart a couple of times as I beta read for Kierney and even after the most recent time the impact of the story was just as intense as the first time.

Kierney has woven a story which is as deeply disturbing as it is enjoyable, ensuring that as a reader you are swept up into Jess’ world of murder and sickness. Not fully recovered from the events of the first book Jess and her team are thrown head first into a case involving murdered children. This case sees them racing against the clock to try and save the next child’s life while Jess yet again becomes front and centre fodder for the murderer.

I love how Kierney weaves things together, this was so well thought out with some wonderful twists. I am a huge fan of Jess, I find the way she deals with her anxiety and stress to be so realistic. I can relate to her in a way I rarely can with characters in books. I feel a real affinity with this character and thoroughly enjoy reading her. I just kinda wish she didn’t have to be put through the grinder so much!

I am a big fan of both Chan and Jamison. Chan is a little cocky but I always get a sense he’s also a bit insecure and uses his cockiness as a cover, he’s a really good detective though and him and Jess bounce off of each other well and this comes over well in a few places during interviews in this book. Jamison is the one the romance reader in me loves, he’s the one I’m rooting for. There are subtle things he says and does that tells me it’s not all over for them…not yet.

Finally, I have to give a big shout out to Agent Claire Ayres who kicks butt in this book…seriously having a character named after you rocks big time! Thanks Kierney!

I’m very grateful to Kierney Scott and Bookouture for the eARC so that I could read and review this book honestly.

Life…
We are born and raised with values to the best of our parents’ abilities, so that one day we can be set free in the world as respectable and contributing members of society.
If we are lucky, we flourish and find our happily ever after; The one person who tilts our world on its axis. The person we hope to spend our life with, to start a family with, and pass on to them what our parents instilled in us.
Ten years ago, I fell madly in love.
It was toxic.
It was forbidden.

I want wrong.
I want him.
So much for being a good person, huh?

#ReleaseBlitz: Pretty Ugly by Jane Anthony @JAnthonyAuthor @EJBookPromos #Review #Playlist

Welcome to the final day of the Pretty Ugly release blitz from Enticing Journey Book Promotions. Today I have a review for you which I hope you will enjoy! This is the second book in Jane Anthony’s Addicted Hearts series. If you missed my review of book one on Tuesday then follow the link below to read it now!

Book One: Pretty Reckless

Description

We were meant to live happily ever after,

a promise I sealed with a band of gold.

Our road was rocky and rough, yet worth every mark etched on my heart.

Kat is my addiction.

I’m her salvation.

Two hearts joined in pain.

Yet beneath the surface of our intended bliss, a tsunami was brewing.

An unstoppable force driven by deceit.

Now I’m back in New York — the city that stole my soul — caught between the future that awaits and a past that won’t let go.

I promised us a happy ending

But the ugliest lies are the ones we tell ourselves.Pretty Ugly - Tour Banner

Review

After the turmoil of Pretty Reckless I thought I was prepared for Pretty Ugly but I didn’t have a clue what I was letting myself in for reading this book. Kat and Chase are seemingly living in bliss but they both are still haunted by the demons of their addiction and it really is only a matter of time until one of them bends too far and breaks.

I guess anybody reading this who hasn’t suffered with addiction would find it hard to understand that pull, how easy it can be to fall back down the rabbit hole and lose everything you’ve gained over the years of sobriety. But as someone living it I can tell you that every single day is a tremendous battle and sometimes things happen that rock that boat a little too much.

Seeing what happens in this book rocked my world as I read, tears pouring down my face as I watched Kat and Chase try to find their way through it back to each other. These two people are so real either of them could be me and I felt me heart ripping apart over and over through this book. Their love for each other just not being enough.

Pretty Ugly is dark, and gritty. Full of heart and soul. And it is well, ugly. But it is full of hope and love as well. I love these characters and I know that anybody who picks this series up is going to fall in love with them as much as I have.

Sending a huge thanks to Jane Anthony and Enticing Journey Book Promotions for the eARC so that I could read and honestly review this novel.

#BookBlitz: Callan by Sybil Bartel @SybilBartel @XpressoTours #Excerpt

You will notice I’ve dropped my normal purple in favour of orange again. This can only mean one thing, Callan is in the house! Huge thanks to Sybil Bartel and Xpresso Tours for having me be part of this Book Blitz.

I am so excited about this book which was released on Monday and I am also on the tour, my stop is tomorrow and I cannot wait to review this book for you guys, honestly I didn’t need to read it to tell you it is fantastic, I’ve had it on pre-order for FOREVER and this is a book that I know will absolutely blow your minds. Sybil Bartel is one of my favourite authors in this genre and I am thrilled to be able to support her with this new release! You will also have to excuse me while you read this post because I’m going to sit back here and swoon at the cover.

If you need catching up on the Uncompromising series here are links to my reviews so far:

Description

Callan

I was trained to be a hunter. Growing up in the nation’s most infamous, violent cult, my job was simple. Track. Kill. Survive.

And that’s what I did… until our leader threatened to kill his own daughter.

Refusing to watch another senseless murder, I did what I was trained to do. I took his life. Then I claimed his land, and set every member free, including her. I only had one goal left. Find the sister I was told was dead.

But being a hunter in the woods is a far cry from tracking a woman in Miami Beach.

I didn’t find my sister.

I found my stepsister.

*CALLAN is the fifth standalone book in the Uncompromising Series. You do not have to read the books in this series in order, but if you prefer to read them in the order written, The Uncompromising Series is listed below.*

Excerpt

She stepped back and turned to leave.

 

 

Suddenly, I was starved for human interaction. Not just any interaction, but female interaction. Two years was probably too long to go without speaking unless absolutely necessary, but it hadn’t felt lonely, not until this unexpected female smiled at me. “What is your name?”

 

 

Denim shorts hugging her womanly curves, showing off tanned legs, she paused and looked over her shoulder. Her brown hair cascaded down her back, the soft waves reaching almost to her waist. “Are you hitting on me?”

 

 

I frowned. “Hitting on you?”

 

 

“Right, okay, um, sorry.” Her cheeks flushed beautifully. “Of course you weren’t. You’re….” Her hand fluttered in the air gracefully as her gaze dropped to my chest. She gave a small, shy laugh and met my eyes again. “I’m just going to stop talking now. Have a good day.”

 

 

“I would never hit you.” The thought was abhorrent.

 

 

She stopped. “No, I meant….” Her head cocked to the side, and she looked at me curiously. “Never mind. Are you from around here?”

 

 

“Yes.” The compound was close enough.

 

 

She kept looking at me, but not in the usual way females on the compound looked at me. Almost six and half feet, blond hair, blue eyes, I knew I was attractive to the opposite sex, but this woman was not looking at me like she merely wanted my seed.

 

 

Mesmerized by her, I gave her a name I had never said out loud. “I am Callan.” The six letters strung together on a birth certificate I had never seen sounded as foreign as my voice.

 

 

Wide and pure, her smile came naturally and without motive. “I’m Emily. Nice to meet you, Callan.”

 

 

I had never met a female outside the compound gates. “You are beautiful.” And she was. Like the saplings in spring, she was new and fresh and full of promise.

 

 

Heat instantly colored her cheeks, and she looked away.

 

 

I frowned. “Did I say something wrong?”

About Sybil Bartel

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never rely on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

To find out more about Sybil Bartel, be sure to follow her on Twitter (she loves to hear about your favorite book boyfriend!), visit her website, like her on Facebook or join her Facebook group Book Boyfriend Heroes for exclusive excerpts and giveaways.

#BookBlitz: Bennett by Sybil Bartel @SybilBartel @XpressoTours #Excerpt #Giveaway

I am so excited to be a part of this book blitz for Bennett by Sybil Bartel and organised by Xpresso Book Tours. Released today, I have had this book on pre-order since the day it was available, and I have been so excited about its release. Later today I will be posting a review as I was lucky enough to get an ARC from Sybil Bartel but right now I’m going to share an excerpt from this fantastic novel with you and give you an opportunity to win big in a great Blitz-wide giveaway.

Description

Being the drummer for the hottest new rock band should’ve been a dream come true. Sold out shows, women, more money than I deserved…

But I didn’t want any of it.

The fame sucked, the money was a burden and I’d given away my only chance at ever having her—my best friend’s sister.

I wasn’t supposed to touch her. My best friend made me swear I wouldn’t. Then he was deployed, and he told me to look out for her. Except being around her while still keeping my distance was slowly killing me. Touring with the band should’ve been the perfect escape… Until I fucked up.

I fucked up so bad, she was half-conscious in my arms, fighting for her life.

Excerpt

The taste of rage filled my mouth. “Tell me who beat you.”

 

“Tell me why you came to my house,” she countered.

 

My jaw clenched, and I gave her more than I ever had. “To see you.”

 

Her voice turned quiet. “Why?”

 

“Give me a name.” I was going to kill whoever did this.

 

“Give me a reason.”

 

The Elyssia I knew wasn’t confrontational. She wasn’t a fighter. She was silently strong and determined. She’d put herself back together after her mother died, and she lived her life like there was good in everything. But this woman in front of me was different.

 

I could stand here and demand she tell me who did this, but I already saw she wasn’t going to budge. It wouldn’t matter what the hell I said right now. I could tell her I was going to kill the fucking bastard who did this. I could tell her she fucking broke me when she’d kissed me, and it’d taken a year to get over feeling like an asshole who wasn’t worthy of her. I could even tell her I was done trying to stay the fuck away from her. But I didn’t say any of it.

 

Like a coward, I evaded. “I didn’t like how we left things.”

 

She studied me a moment. “How did we leave things?”

 

I stared into her gorgeous eyes. “Unfinished.”

About Sybil Bartel

Sybil Bartel - Author Image

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

To find out more about Sybil Bartel, be sure to follow her on Twitter (she loves to hear about your favorite book boyfriend!), visit her website, like her on Facebook or join her Facebook group Book Boyfriend Heroes for exclusive excerpts and giveaways.
