SYNOPSIS:

Abbi Haas likes them big, bad, and out of her bed the next morning. So when a smoking hot firefighter shuts down a possessive ex by pretending to be her boyfriend, she’s happy to play along—and stay for the no-strings-attached sex under the stars. But her knight with bulging biceps had better not think she’s some damsel in distress. She’ll handle her ex like she does everything: on her own.

Wildland firefighter Tyler McCall is supposed to be taking a break from danger. First step to having fun: pick up a sexy stranger by pretending he’s her man. Too bad his fake girlfriend is also his new coworker…and their little white lie has already spread. Tyler knows he should walk away before he gets burned. But he can’t stay out of trouble, and there’s no way he’s letting her go.

EXCERPT #4

He was twelve hundred miles from L.A. In a bar with a beautiful stranger who wanted to go home with him. If he fucked this up for himself, he had no doubt Scotty would come back from the dead just to kill him.

“Live a little!” Scott used to say, and Tyler would wave him away. But this was different. August nineteenth flashed through his head. His end date.

There was no possibility of getting serious now. This was just a chance for some fun. And it had been so, so long since he’d let himself have any fun. He left a twenty on the bar for an extra appreciative tip as he followed Abbi out of the bar.

“Where do you want to go?” he asked.

“Out of here,” she said.

“Okay.”

She looked at him, the trace of a smile on her lips. “You don’t talk much, do you?”

“Am I supposed to be here for talking?”

A burst of laughter rose up from across the parking lot. Russ and his buddies had come outside to smoke under a streetlamp.

“Shit,” Abbi said, the light in her eyes darkening. “You-know-who is still here.”

There was only one thing to do. Tyler turned and pressed her against the side of a car, covering her body with his.

“Good thing you have a boyfriend,” he said. A boyfriend who didn’t want to wait another second to start acting like one.

He knew he shouldn’t be getting caught up like this. He should have gone straight to the rental house, alone like he deserved. But she hooked her fingers through his belt loops and pulled his hips into hers.

And then he stopped waiting, stopped thinking, stopped talking himself out of what felt right. He kissed her hard until his mind went blank.

 

ABOUT REBECCA BROOKS

Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx. Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind to try something new—and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn’t know they’d been missing.

EXCERPT

“Oh God, don’t do that.”

“Do what?”

That.” He pointed toward my mouth. “Everything I told you in Vegas is still true. You’re still gorgeous, still sexy as hell, still everything that draws me in like a damned magnet, but you’re also everything I can’t have. Don’t you get that? When you pull shit like that on the dance floor, you successfully drive me batshit crazy, watching you in some guy’s arms.” A small laugh escaped him. “Like that kid has any idea what to do with you if he actually managed to catch you.”

“And you do?”

His eyes darkened. “Don’t challenge me like that.”

The tension stretched between us for a quiet moment until I broke the silence. “I didn’t kiss him.”

“I’m well aware, because if you had, I’m not sure if I could have let him walk out of here, and that’s dangerous, Penelope. You are dangerous to me.”

“I’m sorry,” I said truthfully. “Logically, I know nothing can happen between us. I get it. But I see you, and all I can think about is the way you kissed me in Vegas. The way you touched me. I can’t just erase those memories, Cruz. Like I said, somehow you make me do stupid things.”

“You? I make you do stupid things?” he nearly yelled, and I was thankful for the loud, driving beat of the music beyond the office doors. “Woman, I got into a strange car for you. Illegally BASE jumped off a Ferris wheel to stay close to you. Went to jail for you, and I make you do stupid things?”

He stalked forward, his movements smooth like a predator, and a low hum filled my stomach, growing stronger with every step he took.

“I let you stay in my class. Stupid. I look for every reason to run into you, while simultaneously praying you’ll stay far away because I need this job. Stupid. I take one look at you in that fucking dress, and I’m so hard I’m afraid I can’t hide it in a room full of students. Stupid. I can’t stop thinking about the way you taste, the way you open up under me, the way your nails left little half-moons in my shoulders when I found how wet you were for me.”

If he got his hands anywhere near me, he’d find out I was just as wet now. God, his words were the biggest turn-on I’d ever experienced. Next to his abs. Or his arms. Or his mouth. Crap, the man was one giant sex package begging to be unwrapped.

“Cruz,” I whispered as he cupped my face with one hand, his thumb rubbing over my lower lip, while he caged me against the desk with the other.

My tongue licked across the tip of his finger, unable to help myself.

“God, Penelope. You could cost me everything, and yet I’m still in here with you. And this might be the worst choice of all.”

His mouth met mine in a kiss that sent my senses reeling. His tongue swept in, claiming every curve he might have missed last time, until it felt like my mouth belonged to him.

NOVA

The only heart he wants is the one he already broke…

He’s Landon Rhodes.

Sinfully gorgeous, broody, tatted-up, professional snowboarder.

Four-time X Games medalist—

Full-time heartbreaker.

They say a girl broke him once—

That’s why he’s so reckless, so driven, so careless with his conquests.

But I’m that girl.

They can call me his curse all they want.

He and I both know the truth—

He’s the one who destroyed me,

And I’m not the sucker who will let that happen again.

ARC #Review of Blame It on the Bet (a Whiskey Sisters novel) by L.E. Rico w/a rafflecopter giveaway! @RadioRico @laurenricoauthor @entangledpub @entangledpublishing

Blame it on the Bet

by L.E. Rico

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Welcome to Mayhem, Minnesota, where the cats wear sweaters, the local priest dispenses dating advice, and you can find your fortune in the bottom of a pie pan.

When her family’s pub is threatened with foreclosure, Hennessy O’Halloran, along with her three sisters, is determined to raise enough money to keep it out of the hands of the L.A. real-estate developer trying to raze it and replace it with a—god forbid!—multiplex theater.

Bryan Truitt always gets what he wants. And what he wants is the sweet corner property on Mayhem’s Main Street where O’Halloran’s Pub sits. But his “quick business” turns into more than he bargains for when he meets the feisty Hennessy. Next thing he knows, he’s betting her he can outlast Mayhem’s punishing winter in time to make the pub his—or he’ll gift it to her for free.

Hennessy knows better than to flirt with the enemy. But suddenly Bryan’s not sure which he wants more…the property or the woman who owns it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt Two:

Standing there, looking bedraggled and exhausted, is Bryan Truitt. He’s holding his iPhone up to the door, and I can just make out the tiny image of Peter Gabriel’s album So on the screen. Bryan doesn’t say a word. He doesn’t knock. He doesn’t ring. He just stands there, phone up, waiting for me to hear him and open the door.

I do.

“In your eyes, I see the doorway to a thousand churches…” Peter Gabriel sings just loud enough so as not to bother my neighbors.

“That’s my favorite line,” he says. “The doorway to a thousand churches line…”

“Yeah, that is a pretty amazing image,” I agree, playing along as he pretends this is a perfectly natural situation.

“I get it.”

“What?” I ask, neither of us budging.

“I get what he’s saying. Because I see that when I look into your eyes.”

I stare at him, my breath suddenly caught in my throat.

“You…you do?” I ask, sounding tentative.

He nods.

“I do. And that’s why I’m here.”

“It is?”

Jeez, could I be any lamer?

He nods again.

“Can I come in?”

I step back and hold the door open so he can pass me.

I realize I’m dressed in only a terrycloth robe with my hair swept up in a towel turban. No clothes. No makeup. Not even a pair of slippers.

“Uh… Let me go put something on—”

“No,” he says sharply. The surprise must register on my face because he’s quick to jump in again. “I don’t want to let you out of my sight. Not for a second. I can’t.”

“Bryan…”

He sets his phone down on the breakfast bar and wraps his big, strong hands around my forearms.

“No, Hennessy. I let you go once, and I won’t do it again. Not ever.”

Okay, I have to admit that this review almost didn’t make it today.  I read a lot of Entangled books and I didn’t realize that this one is novel length.  Yes, over 300 pages long.  Most books I read are maybe, on a good day, no more than 200 pages and I can read that in a couple of hours.  This one, not so much.  I started it late and then realized the length and thought, I’ll never finish it in time.  But guess what?  I did and I’m sad.  There were times in the book, that I had a silent tear coming down my face and I’m still trying not to cry now.

Have you ever read a book by an author, an author that you know nothing about, and feel like you’ve had your soul ripped out, laughed out loud, cried over little thing that you shouldn’t be crying over and then wondering when the next book from the author comes out?  No?  That’s a shame because I feel that way with this book and Ms. Rico.  She made me think, laugh, cry and overall, make me think of some things that I’ve gone through in my life and wondered if I made the right decisions.

Bryan and Hennessey are the perfect couple that I have read in a very long time.  Sure, sure, every blogger says that but I mean it.  They were both flawed, judgemental, smart, wrong and yet, so perfect for each other.  Bryan needed a reality check after everything that he went through some years ago and Hennessey needed to final realize what was going to make her happy.  And yes, spoiler alert…being a lawyer isn’t that.  One character wasn’t better than the other and they both had some growing to go through before they finally figured out what they wanted.

I read a lot of Bliss books and this one will stay with me for awhile.  Ms. Rico has given so much personality to the Whiskey sisters:  Jameson, Hennessey, Walker, and Bailey.  Yes, those are their names and trust me, the names fit the sisters.  You have to read the book and get to know them to understand them.  I’m in awe with Ms. Rico and how she could have written the outline of the series and be able to stay true to all of the characters.  Oh yes, Father Romance, the Pie Lady (she’s spooky), King, Ms. Lucy and everyone else in the book.  Priceless and I don’t think I will every get the phrase “BryBry…dooooosssssshhhh” out of my head for a very long time.  The tears of laughter and Jameson trying to wrangle her son.  Speaking of which, I’m still trying to figure out what Jameson is going to do now.

Overall, I can’t say enough about this book, this author and the series that just started.  There is so much that I could say but I won’t because some of it would be spoilers and you really need to read it.  Ms. Rico is just brilliant in her storytelling and I can’t wait to go back to Mayhem and see if there are any new cats and what sweaters they will be wearing.  And yes, that’s a whole different aspect of the book that is just down right hilarious.

***one other thing…I pre-ordered the book before I signed up to review it.  I can’t wait until next week to re-read it.***

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

 

L.E. Rico didn’t set out to be an author. In fact she’s made a name for herself as a classical music radio host—doing her best to make the music and the composers relevant by putting them into a modern context. It was just a few years ago that she discovered a passion for writing that blossomed into an entire novel. And then another. And another. And, while she still spends plenty of time on the radio, telling the stories of the great composers, she spends even more time composing her own great stories.
