5 star review for BENEATH THE SKIN by @LaurenDane

I absolutely loved this book. It’s funny, very sexy, and a little suspenseful. Mia was an airplane pilot for the Air Force. She’s a jaguar shifter and was almost killed several months ago when she was attacked by shifter haters. She is tough, sassy, and takes no crap from anyone. She returns to her family in Boston and finds a man shot on the street. Gibson is the Bringer of his jamboree, he is like the police for the jaguars. He’s a total bad boy and Mia saves him when he’s shot with silver. Then someone comes in to her family’s wine store and shoots her in the leg. When she is attacked on a jogging trail, Gibson has her stay with him. He has never felt this way about a woman and the sex is out of this world. There was some bad blood between the families but they don’t let that stop them. They’re not sure if the people are after her or Gibson. But he’ll do anything to keep her safe as will she. * Voluntarily read and reviewed this for netgalley *

REVELATION by @LaurenDane

Great story with witches, jaguars, wolves, and other supernatural. There is a slight cliffhanger. And plenty of sex.

Kendra is a witch and Max is a jaguar, who’s next in line for the alpha position. Cats mate differently than others, they imprint. When he first meets Kendra, he knows she will be his mate. Some in his family don’t like her and are selling secrets to the people against shifters. When Max and Kendra mate, she gains a Jaguar too. Along with her witch powers, the cat makes her even more powerful. She knows her father his behind her mother’s death but catching him has proved to be difficult. They have a fight coming and it will take everyone working together to win it.

“Heartbreaking…inspiring, uplifting and raw…” ― RT Book Reviews, A 5-star Gold Pick

 

SUMMARY:

A broken woman . . .

 

Crystal learned long ago that love brings only pain. Feeling nothing at all is far better than being hurt again. She guards her wounded heart behind a hard exterior and carries within her a deep mistrust of men, who, in her experience, have only ever used and taken.

 

A man in need of help . . .

 

Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible darkness of his past, there’s an undeniable goodness in him. And even though she knows the cost, Crystal finds herself drawn to Gabriel. His quiet strength is wearing down her defenses and his gentle patience is causing her to question everything she thought she knew.

 

Only love can mend a shattered heart . . .

 

Crystal and Gabriel never imagined that the world, which had stolen everything from them, would bring them a deep love like this. Except fate will only take them so far, and now the choice is theirs: Harden their hearts once again or find the courage to shed their painful pasts.

Reviews by Crystal

Post Date: October 19

1. What are you currently working on?

I’m currently working on my next sign of love book! It will be out in the beginning of March. J

 2. Where did you come up with the idea for either your current release or your current WIP?

The seed for Most of All You started with a quote I read last year (often attributed to Bob Marley though there’s some debate on that apparently!). It goes : “If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy. If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it, you won’t give up. If you give up, you’re not worthy. Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.” It started my wheels turning and from this quote, Gabe and Crystal were born.

 3. Do you have a favorite snack that you like to munch on while writing? If so would you mind sharing what it is with us?

I don’t ever eat while I’m writing. I do like to sip water or coffee though!

4. When you are not busy writing wonderful stories to keep us lucky readers entertained, what do you like to do? Do you have a hobby?

I love home decorating and re-doing old furniture! I could browse design sites all day and live at flea markets!  

5. Do you have a favorite background noise you like to having going while you write (TV, Music, kids playing)?

I always make a playlist for each of my books and listen to it constantly while writing. Whenever I listen to it later, it brings me right back to the feel of the story!

Literary Gossip

Post Date: October 19

Most of All You is about two broken characters who, through love and perseverance, heal each other’s deep wounds.


Randoms:

1. Song in your head?

Perfect by Ed Sheeran. It’s on my current playlist!

2. What is your favorite wine?
It depends on the meal and season. But right now, I’m loving a sauvignon blanc called Prophecy. And it has the prettiest label! 😀 

3. Splurge Item?
Bedding. I’ll wear clothes from Kmart, but I love really good sheets! :p

4. First job?
I worked the register at KFC when I was 15. Terrible job.

5. A book you’ve read over and over again?
I’ve literally never read a book more than once. I guess I don’t think I can ever recreate that first experience no matter how much I love a novel. So I don’t even try. 😀

6. What you are reading right now?
The Woman in Cabin Ten. It’s a mystery/thriller and though I don’t usually choose those, it’s a book club book. It’s nice to get out of my comfort zone every once in a while!

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received in your writing career?

To try not to let others’ voices get in my head while I’m writing. It’s really difficult to do, especially after you’ve written a number of books and heard different forms of criticism. But when I’m able to shut that out, my writing flows so much more easily, and from a completely authentic place.


What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve looked up in the name of research – or what do you think the government has maybe flagged you for?

Ha! I did a lot of research into different ways to kill large groups of people when I was writing Becoming Calder. That couldn’t have looked good!


Which actor/actress would you like to see playing your main characters from MOST OF ALL YOU?

Hmm . . . Chace Crawford for Gabriel. For Crystal . . . Victoria Justice. I’m not very good with casting – I don’t watch enough TV! 😀


What is an unknown fact or fun trivia about MOST OF ALL YOU?

I outlined the entire novel in one sitting while watching a movie at home with my family! I’ve never outlined a book in one day, ever!

***************

In Between the Pages

Post Date: October 19

• Out of all your characters in MOST OF ALL YOU who were your favorite to write? Who was also the hardest to write?

George was my favorite to write. He was just kind and wise – that sort of Grandpa that always knew just the right thing to say to give you the clarity you needed in any given situation. I think the hardest to write was Crystal because she was so wounded. I didn’t want her to come off as overly harsh, but then again, that did sort of have to be her character in a way. She wore layers of armor and that’s what Gabriel had to chip away at. But it was a fine line and she was a challenge for sure.

• Do you have an author that you completely fan girl over?
EL James. I was in a bar with her once and all I could do was stare creepily from across the room. Super cool.

• Where did your inspiration to write MOST OF ALL YOU come from? (What or who was your muse?) My inspiration came from a quote I read last year (often attributed to Bob Marley-though there’s some debate about that). It goes: “If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy. If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it, you won’t give up. If you give up, you’re not worthy. Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.” It totally knocked me for a loop and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Gabriel and Ellie’s story was born from that quote.
• What was your favorite scene to write in MOST OF ALL YOU?
The scene where Gabe takes Ellie to the covered bridge. It’s the very first time Ellie completely lets down her guard and I was like, ah! Finally! Let’s do this, girlfriend! 😀 

• What was the process like getting your book to become a reality? Getting an agent, signing with a publisher. Especially since you went from publishing a lot of indie’s to then re-branding with a publisher…
Well with this book specifically, I already had an agent – the amazing Kimberly Brower – and she’s the one who shopped my idea around. Forever was interested in it and it went from there! I’m really, really excited about this new step on my journey. J

EXCERPT 

Slowly, numbly, she shrugged. “I knew you were dangerous and relentless in pursuing somebody,” she whispered. But a killer? Her search for him had held a romantic element, and she knew it. This guy was all edge—no romance. “Am I in danger?” Her voice quivered, but she had to know.

“Yes.” He didn’t move. Didn’t even seem to breathe.

She blinked. Rapidly. “From you?”  

His eyes darkened. “No. The only thing I’m capable of breaking is your heart.”

Cold swam through her. The arrogance. “You think you broke my heart?”

His lip twisted. “I know I did.” His tone was low with what seemed like self-hatred. Dark and raw. “I’m sorry.”

Those words. She’d needed those words and hadn’t realized how badly. “Thank you,” she said, going on instinct. “Then how am I in danger?”

“I’m in danger, and anybody close to me is free game for an enemy who will keep coming until I’m dead. Until everything I care about, everything I dream about, is taken away and I want death.” He looked back down at the computer, intensity pouring from him.

Whoa. Okay. Denver didn’t have one bit of hysteria in him. His words scared her, but curiosity still rose up. “Who?”

“Irrelevant. As soon as we get Talia back, you have to forget me. Now. Back to Richie.”

She could live forever, and she’d never forget him. Not for one second had she been able to pretend he didn’t exist. But he was right. They had to find Talia, but he still needed to explain more. She had a right to know everything. “I have files on everything.” She threw her pack at Denver, and he easily caught it before it smashed him in the face.  

He didn’t so much as frown. “Thank you.”

She swallowed. They were in the same room. After a year of hurting for him, he was right there in solid form. More than solid. She hadn’t imagined his hard body or intense charisma. He owned every room he walked into with no effort. She’d never met anybody like him, and here he was. Her body tingled, her heart ached, and her mind spun. Yeah. Denver was definitely there. “What now?” she asked, her eyes gritty and her throat scratchy.

“I’ll do some research.” Slowly, numbly, she shrugged. “I knew you were dangerous and relentless in pursuing somebody,” she whispered. But a killer? Her search for him had held a romantic element, and she knew it. This guy was all edge—no romance. “Am I in danger?” Her voice quivered, but she had to know.

Long Excerpt

Noni slowly came awake with a heater at her back. The smell of male and forest filled her senses.

Denver.

She stilled and listened to his even breathing. He was asleep. Good. She took a moment to feel his presence in bed again. Some of the happiest times in her entire life had been with him in bed. Man, she’d fallen for him fast and hard. They’d only dated for about three months, but she could remember each and every detail as if it were yesterday. The feeling of him in bed was right.

Yet it wasn’t. It couldn’t be. For months after he’d left, she hadn’t slept in her bed. She’d watched television until falling asleep on the sofa in her living room.  

She couldn’t do this. Be with him like this. Everything feminine in her wanted to turn around and snuggle into his arms. But he’d be gone soon, and she knew it. Why torture herself? The room was still dark, so dawn had yet to arrive. She slid from the bed as quietly as she could, turned and backtracked to the doorway.

He slept on his back on top of the covers, his huge body taking up most of the bed. His movements were nil, but his breathing even. How tired had he been? A lock of his black hair had fallen on his forehead, and her fingers itched to push it away. To caress down his hard jaw and muscled neck to that wide chest. She’d once spent an entire morning kissing that chest.

Man, she missed him. Even now, with him near and her so pissed, she missed those moments. When he was hers to touch.

Enough wallowing. That was beneath her, and she was stronger than this. There was no choice. She swallowed and gathered her courage, sliding out of the room and quietly shutting the door. After a quick trip to the one bathroom, she tiptoed into the living room and surveyed the computers. The materials from her backpack were spread over a table, while other manila files and yellow notepads were scattered around.

Forgoing hers for his, she flipped through them. A small, very small, part of her felt guilty to be going through Denver’s things. The other part, the one he’d abandoned alone in a bed in Alaska, didn’t give a hoot. The man would never level with her, so she’d be the detective in this case.

The file held a bunch of notes and pictures of red-headed women. Something about a Copper Killer serial case filled one. She pushed it aside and opened another file labeled as “Dr. Madison.”

“See anything that interests you?” Denver asked from hallway entry.

Noni jumped, her lungs compressing. “I’m just getting started.” She would not feel bad. “I read about the Copper Killer case in the newspaper. He was a serial killer who focused on redheads. They caught the guy here in Snowville, right?”

“We caught the guy,” Denver said, not moving. He leaned against the door frame, his hair mussed up, whiskers covering his square jaw. His ragged T-shirt was wrinkled, and his jeans ripped, and nothing in the world had ever looked so delicious. Sexy, tousled, and dangerous.

Noni cleared her throat. A pulse set up between her legs. So that’s why he had been in town. “That wasn’t in the news.”

“It wouldn’t be.” He pushed away from the door frame toward her, holding out his hand. “My records.”

She clutched them to her chest. “I’m not done snooping.”

“Yes, you are.” He grasped the manila folders with two fingers and pulled.

She could fight him, but in a tug of war, she’d probably lose. Or at least get a paper cut, and those sucked. “Who is Dr. Madison?”

At the question, his lazy indulgence disappeared. A flash of heat hit his eyes, and for the moment, he looked every bit as deadly as he’d warned her that he could be. Barely leashed violence poured off him in a heat she could actually feel. “Nobody,” he said, his voice guttural.

Noni gaped at him. At the change in him—in a second. “Right. I, ah, I can see that.”

Then the gates shuttered closed. A veil fell over his expressive eyes, effectively shutting her out.

She exhaled. “I’d forgotten that look.” When they’d dated, every time she’d asked about his life, about his childhood, he’d shut her out. And she’d let him. Oh, she’d sensed the pain in his past, and she’d just accepted him, knowing someday he’d open up to her. Someday he’d feel free enough, safe enough, to confide in her. “I was such a fucking idiot,” she muttered, letting the truth finally in. Even when they’d been together, he hadn’t let her know him.

“No, you’re not,” he said gently. “I’m good at playing a part. Really good.”

Fire lashed her. She jumped up, sending the chair flying back. He had fooled her, and he had done a good job with it. But there had been moments…real moments. She had to trust herself and what she felt. Could she shake him? Get him to admit it was more than just a part? “Oh, baby. You’re not that good.”  

“No?” he asked silkily.

“No.” She levered up right into his face, finally trusting her instincts. “I may not know the details of your life, of your big secrets, but I know you a little bit, asshole.” She slapped a hand on his chest. Hard. “Whether you like it or not, you revealed some of your true self.” While she didn’t know the facts, she knew his heart. Whether he liked it or not. Since he’d shown up in her motel room, she hadn’t had time to really think. No way would he hurt her. While he was dangerous, she was safe. “Suck on that.”

“Maybe,” he said, pressing his hand over hers. “It doesn’t change anything. We’re gonna find this baby and get you safe. Then I have another job to do.”

“Jobs,” she sputtered as his heart beat so steadily against her palm. “Tons of jobs, right?”

“No. Just one.” His hand completely covered hers, and she couldn’t move it. The way he said the words gave her pause. Such finality in each syllable.

Her gaze dropped to the files in his other hand. “Dr. Madison?”

He slowly nodded.

“You’re trying to find her?” That’s what he did, right? He found people or things. His detective agency found the lost. That’s what he’d always said.

“Yes.”​

She swallowed. “Then what?” Instinct chilled down her back, but she didn’t know why. Tension choked around them. “What happens to Dr. Madison?”

“I’m going to kill her.” With that, Denver released Noni’s hand and moved around her to the computers. “Now. Let’s find that baby.”

 

My favorite line:

“She was good and strong and sweet and somebody he shouldn’t touch. But he’d wanted so badly to touch her, so he’d played a part he thought she’d like. For the briefest of time, he’d pretended he could be a normal guy courting an amazing woman. But he wasn’t normal, and he’d get her killed if she stayed in his life.”

DIRTY RICH ONE NIGHT STAND BY @LisaReneeJones..HAPPY RELEASE DAY LISA!!!!!!!




TITLE: Dirty, Rich One Night Stand

GENRE: Contemporary Steamy Romance

RELEASE DATE: October 18, 2017

ABOUT THE BOOK

DIRTY, RICH ONE NIGHT STAND.

That’s all it was supposed to be. Her. Him. Pleasure. And then a fast goodbye. He’s a stranger. And yet, he’s not. She knows him even though he doesn’t know her.

He’s the powerful attorney, now world-renowned after coming off the trial of a century which was publicized across the country. And I’m one of the reporters that sat in his courtroom.

I watched him, studied him, got to know him from afar which isn’t hard since I know his exact brand of confidence, arrogance, and wealth.

I know his type. I’ve dated his type. Which is why when I happen to come face to face with him, when sparks fly and heat simmers between us, I know what happens if I say “yes” to Reese Summer. 

I know he’ll taste like sin and sex, even before he kisses me.

I know he’ll feel like pleasure and passion, even before he touches me.

I know he’ll demand more than I wants to give, and yet, because I dare to give myself to him, the result will be deliciously hot.

I know that I will not leave his bed without being utterly, completely sated. 

And I know that I will leave the next morning anyway.

And so, I do. 

And so, he follows.

And as chase begins my question becomes: Is Reese Summer THE one or is he really just a dirty, arrogant lie that should have stayed a one night stand?

EXCERPT

“You’re as perfect as I knew you would be,” he says, his voice managing to be both sandpaper and silk on my nerve endings, as he adds, “and almost as naked as I want you to be.” 

The idea that he has wanted me as much as I have wanted him does funny things to my stomach, but more so, delivers an unexpected wave of illogical vulnerability. This is sex. The end. I don’t want or need to feel anything more. I want and need him naked and fucking me now, fast, hard. That’s safe. Desperate to find that safe place, to shift the control from him to me, I push to my toes, my breasts molding to his chest, and press my lips to his lips. They are warm, and he is hard everywhere I am soft.

And his response to my kiss, the answering moan I am rewarded with, is white-hot fire in my blood that he ignites further with a deep, sizzling stroke of his tongue. He slants his mouth over mine, deepening the connection, kissing me with a fierceness no other man ever has, but then some part of me has known from moment one that he is like no man I have ever known. Which explains why he is everything I want. And nothing about this night is what I expected, any more than this man is anything I can control.

But there is something intensely arousing about the idea of trying.

As if claiming I am reaching for the impossible, he molds me closer, his hand between my shoulder blades, his tongue playing wickedly with mine, but I meet him stroke for stroke, arching into him. He cups my ass and pulls me solidly against his erection. He wins this one. Now I am the one moaning, arching into him, and I welcome the intimate connection. I burn for the moment he will be inside me.

But I also want him to burn for this just as much as I do, and I need to touch this man. Really, really, need to touch him. My hand presses between us, and I stroke the hard line of his shaft. Reese tears his mouth from mine, pressing me hard against the pillar supporting the window again, and when his hands leave my body, when his palms press to the concrete above me again, I sense his withdrawal is about control. I was winning. I confirm that as reality when our eyes lock, and the dash of fire in his eyes is lit by one part passion and one part challenge.

“If I slide my fingers between your legs right now,” he says, “are you wet for me? Are you ready for me?”

“Why don’t you find out for yourself?” I dare him, testing him, pushing him.

Suspense. Heartbreak. Stalker. Have Kleenex by your side. Sarah is a widow with a two year old little girl. She is a photographer for celebrities. Her husband, a soldier, was killed and he never got to hold his little girl. Ethan was her and her husbands best friend and was there when her husband couldn’t. He owns a security company that is very popular. When their feelings change, they try a relationship but Ethan is afraid he will not be good for her. In the meantime, someone is raping women in Sarah’s neighborhood. She starts getting blue roses left on her doorstep. When he breaks in, they all move into Ethan’s, where his house is like a fortress. The rapist starts escalating and is now killing his victims. 

When they think they’ve caught the killer, Sarah goes home and everyone thinks all is well, she is kidnapped. Can Ethan save her before the stalker rapes and kills her?

I’ll be honest, Ethan sort of made me mad. He kept pulling Sarah and then pushing her away. Then he’d get mad at her for not wanting to take a chance with him. The plot was excellent because you didn’t know who the stalker/rapist was. I had tears during most of the book. A little steamy. And the little girl Kylee is the cutest.
