TITLE: Ties that Bind

SERIES: Hot in Hollywood, book 1

RELEASES: Sept 19, 2017

PUBLISHER:  Amazon Publishing

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

COUPLE: Cora & Jack

TROPES: Reunited Lovers

 

SYNOPSIS:

 

Once upon a time, Cora Landers was America’s Sweetheart and destined to be the Next Big Thing in Hollywood—but that was before her sex tape ruined her image and eliminated her contracts. These days, instead of being an A-lister, she’s divorce attorney to the A-listers. So when her ex—and fellow sex tape star—Jack shows up, needing her expertise, she wants nothing to do with it.

Jack McArthur might have costarred in that sex tape, but he didn’t share Cora’s fate—instead of tanking his career, the tape skyrocketed it. Now, as one of Hollywood’s most buzzed about new directors, Jack has everything to lose—especially when he wakes up after a friend’s bachelor party gone wrong to find that he’s apparently married a woman he’s never met before…and now can’t find. Desperate, he goes to the only person who he knows can help—Cora.

Cora reluctantly agrees to help Jack—both because he’s offering an absurd amount of money and because she loves seeing him as a disadvantage for once. Neither of them anticipate the very real problem of their being unable to keep their hands off each other—or that Jack’s accidental marriage might be anything but accidental. With both her heart and career on the line—again—Cora has to decide if she’s going to take the high road or leave Jack hanging in the wind the same way he left her twelve years ago.

 

I have to start off by saying that I went and re-read Prom Queen so that I could get a sense of Cora and Brooklyn.  Of course, I just Ms. Robert’s books anyway so it wasn’t a hardship.  A couple of things first, though.  This book is novella length.  It is short, sweet and to the point.  I love when an author takes secondary characters from one book and decides that they need their HEA, too.  Ms. Roberts delivers when it comes to Cora and Jack.  Oh boy, do these two have a history.  I loved how their sex tape was really all about and it’s not what you think.  I really felt sorry for Cora when the truth came out.  I can’t even imagine what it would be like a child star.  *shudder*

Jack is just that guy that everyone loves and it seems like that everything he touches turns to gold.  Unfortunately, Cora didn’t turn to gold that night.  She run.  And run she did.  To a very successful career if not an unsatisfying personal life.  Again, since this is a novella length, Ms. Roberts doesn’t take long for Jack and Cora to hit the sheets.  I know, instalove alert, but with Cora and Jack, its not.  These two fell in love 12 years ago when they were younger, they just didn’t know it.  Ms. Roberts also doesn’t take the high road when it comes to the raw emotions that come to the surface when it comes to Jack and Cora finally connecting again.

One last thing, the marriage aspect of the book is funny, if not scary.  Brooklyn is hilarious when she goes to Vegas.  OMG!  I love her.  If you are looking for a great story about two people that fell in love as kids, grew up to be adults and found each other again.  Don’t forget a cold glass of something to drink.  This is Ms. Robert’s after all.  She doesn’t skimp on the sexy times.  😉

 

 

Excerpt from TIES THAT BIND

Copyright © 2017 Katee Robert

 

Jack opened the back door, every inch a gentleman—if it was gentlemanly to plan to ravage her in his backseat. Cora climbed in slowly, letting her dress ride up to give him a peek of her panties. His sharp inhale was reward in and of itself.

She expected him to follow immediately, but he stood there blocking the open space, his blue eyes forbidding. “Take those off.”

Cora settled back against the far door and pulled her dress up so she could slide her panties off. She tossed them in his direction, and Jack snaked a hand out to catch them. He slid them into his pocket and only then did he climb into the backseat with her.

“Really? You’re going to…what? Take them home as a memento? Bragging rights?”

“Cora.”

She licked her lips. “Yes?”

“Shut up. You know goddamn well and good that I’m not a douche like that, so stop pretending that I am.” He hooked her thighs and pulled her to the edge of the seat as he went to his knees next to the seat itself. “And stop pretending that it doesn’t get you wet knowing that I’ll be jacking myself to the scent of you later.”

Her jaw dropped. “Holy shit.”

“Now, stop talking.” He nudged her shoulder until she leaned back against the seat. Jack ran his hands up her thighs, spreading her legs farther. “It’s been a long time.”

There was nothing to say to that because it was the truth. Cora grabbed the hem of her dress and arched off the seat so she could drag it over her head. It left her in only her bra, but Jack’s curse made the bold move more than worth it. She shook her hair out of her face. “It won’t be much longer.”

He didn’t take his gaze off her as he reached for the center console. “Fuck, Cora.” The blatant appreciate in his tone made her smile despite herself. Jack met her eyes. “This isn’t a one-time thing.”

“Excuse me?”

“You. Me. This.” He motioned between them. “We do this, we’re doing this.”

The words were less than enlightening, but with his thumbs stroking intoxicating circles on her inner thighs, she wasn’t sure she cared. “Fine. Whatever. I need you inside me.”

His slow grin was foreplay all on its own. Jack traced his thumbs along the dip where her thighs met her hips. “Getting there.” He didn’t give her a chance to curse him. One second he was teasing her, the next he pushed two big fingers into her, filling her in a way that was nothing compared to the main course. She rolled her hips, trying to take him deeper, but Jack just chuckled and kept his strokes light.

Need built, stronger than it had any right to be. His scent wrapped around her in the close confines of the car, the tinted windows creating an intimate atmosphere despite where they were. Cora didn’t want intimate. She didn’t want soft. She sure as hell didn’t want slow. She grabbed his wrist. “Stop teasing me.”

“Come home with me.”

She blinked, surprised for what felt like the thousandth time that day. “What?”

“Come home with me, Cora.” Jack kept stroking her, his fingers unerringly gravitating to that sensitive spot inside her that could motivate her to do damn near anything. She gasped and he leaned down to eat the sound. His tongue stole her words even as his fingers continued their wicked work. Jack consumed her.

And then he stopped.

He pressed one last light kiss to her lips and sat back. “What’s your answer?”

She wasn’t even sure what the question was. Cora shook her head, trying to clear it. “This is emotional blackmail.”

“Hardly.” His thumb idly circled her clit, sending a wave of tension through her body. “This is me flat out saying that I want you naked in my bed, to do with as I please for several hours before we pass out. Reality can wait until tomorrow.”

Common sense said it was the perfect time to stop this before she got herself—and her heart—into trouble. No one had ever seen her the way Jack threatened to. She didn’t relish the thought of being stripped bare, only to be left in the dust when he moved on from his current crisis.

But if she didn’t jump now, she might never get the chance to again.

The thought of spending the rest of her life kicking herself for missing the chance to be with Jack again had her finding words she never thought she’d say. “Yes.”

“Yes?” His cobalt eyes watched her every move, making her feel strangely like prey. It wasn’t a comfortable feeling, but it wasn’t entirely unpleasant, either.

Cora swallowed hard. “Take me home with you, Jack.”

TITLE: Animal Attraction

SERIES: Hot in Hollywood, book 2

RELEASES: Sept 19, 2017

PUBLISHER:  Amazon Publishing

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

COUPLE: Brooklyn & Levi

TROPES: Enemies to Lovers

 

SYNOPSIS:

 

A private investigator might not be as glamorous as Brooklyn James had expected, but it pays the bills. Or at least it used to. In dire financial straits, she no longer has the luxury of saying no to jobs if she wants to pay her bills—which is how she ends up in a tree, spying on a billionaire who’s accused of dognapping. Not her finest moment.

Levi Turnbull made his fortune by creating tech that melds exercise with video games. It sounded great at the time, but now he’s got more money than he knows what to do with and he’s bored out of his mind waiting for the next game to launch. When he realizes a neighbor has been neglecting his dog, he takes matters into his own hands—by taking the dog. If he’s been trolling the neighbor ever since with hilarious fliers around the area… Well, he’s only human. When he finds a pretty redhead trespassing on his property in search of the missing dog, he sees the ultimate distraction until the launch.

Brooklyn initially agrees to a date in order to get close enough to Levi to find evidence of his dognapping—but that motivation gets complicated when they end up in bed together. She’s unable to resist his charm, and as they grow closer, Brooklyn can’t avoid the truth—not only did Levi steal a million dollar dog…he’s in danger of stealing her heart, too.

 

Good lord.  This book is hot!  I mean hot!  But of course, it’s no surprise since Ms. Robert’s wrote it.  This book is one that you savor with relish and don’t really want it to end.  This book is a lighthearted read.  The complete opposite of Ties That Bind and I liked it.  While Cora and Jack’s story dealt with some deep seeded issues, Brooklyn and Levi’s story is just the opposite.  It involves a dog, a cat that is worn as a shawl and two people that couldn’t be more opposite.  And with that, it left me a little meh.

If I had one bad thing to say about the book is that I never really got to know Brooklyn.  Not like Levi.  Levi pretty much told his life history and family background with her and absolutely nothing from her.  I felt a bit cheated since I had gotten to know Jessica and Cora so well.  But I digress.  I liked Brooklyn with her smart mouth and her morals.  When she finally figured everything out about the dog and Levi, she runs.  Oooo, I was mad at that point.  She finally met her match and she ran.

Anyway, I loved their story overall, Be prepared though, the book is very fast paced and then we are left with our hearts renewed.  I also have to say that we get to know about Jessica and what is happened after the reunion.  I missed her, Cora and Brooklyn and their Friday nights.  Bad television (HGTV) (hey, I’m addicted to that channel), wine, and ice cream.  I wished that I had gotten one more scene with them.  *sigh*

Overall, I really liked the story.  And no, you don’t need to read Prom Queen first but you really should.  Cora and Brooklyn are hilarious in that one but you do need to read Cora’s book first.  Trust me.  You’re welcome!

 

Excerpt from Animal Attraction

Copyright © 2017 Katee Robert

 

He spun her around and pressed her hands to the door, his big body at her back. “This is the door.”

“It’s a very nice door.”

“Mmm.” His hips thrust against her ass, and she swallowed hard, her body clenching in anticipation. The first-time nerves were gone. She knew what was coming, and she knew she would be coming before long. They might not be compatible in life, but their bodies didn’t know that. Levi pulled her hair off her neck and kissed her there, taking his time, the sensation of his lips and beard making her toes curl. “I picked it out myself.”

Picked out… Oh, right. The door.

She arched back into him, rubbing her ass against his cock. “You have good taste.”

“Funny you say that, because what I want most right now is to taste you.” He backed off enough to pull her jacket off and then one hand was on the front of her jeans, unbuttoning them deftly and dragging the zipper down. She felt that tiny vibration all the way through her body. There was nothing to say, though, because he slipped a big hand into her jeans, dipping beneath her panties, and speared a single finger into her.

Brooklyn moaned and tried to spread her legs. The move tightened her jeans, holding his hand in place. “I need you.”

“Tour’s not done yet.” He pumped as much as he was able. And then he withdrew his hand.

She couldn’t keep her whimper of protest in. She spun to face him, trying to shove out of her pants in the process, and nearly face-planted. “Levi.”

“Dresser.” He lifted her, and walked the handful of steps to the dresser to set her on it. Then he yanked off her jeans and tossed them behind him. “Better.”

“Much.”

He stepped between her thighs and kissed her. It was nothing like the last time. There was no careful and teasing exploration. Levi sucked and stroked and nipped her into a frenzy. His mouth drew sounds from her she wasn’t aware she could make. She wrapped her legs around his waist and clung to his shoulders and basically tried to climb him like a big, sexy tree, because she needed his cock and she needed it now.

He shifted and set her back on the dresser, untangling from her. “Mahogany.”

It took Brooklyn a few beats to catch up. She looked down at the piece of furniture she sat on and back at the man in front of her, his hard length creating a mouthwatering outline against his jeans. “I don’t care.”

“You should. It’s a family heirloom. My grandfather built it.” He hit his knees in front of her and spread her legs wider. “It was his wedding gift to my grandmother.”

She blinked. Didn’t expect that, either. Brooklyn tried to get a better look at the massive piece of furniture, but Levi chose that moment to lean in and drag his tongue up her center and suddenly, she didn’t give two fucks about what she sat on, as long as it didn’t fall apart beneath her. She gripped the edge of the dresser to keep from levitating right off it and looked down her body to meet his gaze.

The switch had been flipped again. Gone was the playfulness, replaced by that intensity that had tingles shooting down her spine. He really was something.

She half expected him to rush through the oral, but she really should have known better. Levi hitched her legs higher and went after her clit like it owed him money. He sucked and licked and growled against her skin as his grip tightened on her thighs.

Brooklyn was so lost in her pleasure, she didn’t notice that he’d half released her until she looked down to watch him again and saw that he was stroking himself. He jacked himself while licking her, as if he couldn’t contain himself and…

Her back bowed and she came with a cry. “Oh, my God.”

“You don’t have to call me God. Levi will do.” He kissed first one thigh and then the other. “But if you’re going to insist, I won’t stop you.”

“Shhhh. You don’t get to talk shit when I’m too weak from my fantastic orgasm to fight back.”

Levi rose and kissed her shoulder, her collar bone, her neck. “Honey, that’s the best time to talk shit.”

Happy Book Birthday & ARC #Review of The Attraction File (a Cake Love Novel #2) by Elizabeth Lynx w/a rafflecopter giveaway! @authorelizabethlynx @givemebooksblog @ELynxAuthor

 

Title: The Attraction File
A Cake Love Series Novel
Author: Elizabeth Lynx
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: September 21, 2017

 

Blurb
She’s Cold. He’s Hot. When they get together they burn. 
Evaleen Bechmann is too busy running Human Resources for the billion-dollar company, Mimir, to even consider dating. As for emotions, she refuses to discuss that too. It doesn’t matter anyway. She’s invisible to men, especially one man in particular. Evaleen is fine with that. Not everyone gets their happily ever after, that’s only for novels.
Edgar Mirmir is a Nordic god to some, a tech-savvy genius to others, and to women – he is everything they desire. His life should be perfect, and everything he has ever dreamed of… only it’s not. One woman haunts him. When he first saw her, her electric blue eyes shone with defiance, fear, and sorrow. He wanted to reach out to her, but she disappeared. Until one day he turned around
and there she was.
You are probably wondering why I rated both books today “Best of 2017”?  I’ve never done that and I’m getting really picky about the books that I read.  I choose these two because they are from authors that I have never read and honestly, the covers of the books are what sold me to read them.  Truly, the two books could not be the polar opposites.  One is one of the funniest rom com’s that I have read this year and this one is…let me explain.
I get the whole enemies to lovers thing but trust me, this book is so much more to that.  In fact, the book has so many layers that I would go back and re-read passages so that I didn’t miss anything.  Evaleen and Edgar are the two most stubborn characters that I have read in a long time.  There is so much that I could tell you about Evaleen’s and Edgar’s backstory but that’s actually half the book.  The book is told from dual POV’s with flashbacks.  Oops, I probably said too much already.
This book has snark, secrets, a dash of suspense, “firsts”, delicious humor, a hero to die for, a heroine to root for and secondary characters that are so richly written that you think…where is their book?  Oh wait, I have Henrik’s book to read.  I know, I know.  I’m slow but it is on the Kindle.
I admit that I read this book while I was subbing at the high school.  It was just one of those books that I couldn’t stop reading.  Layer after layer is revealed and then BAM!  Edgar and Evaleen are not perfect.  Far from it but they are perfect for each other.  The just fit and understand each other.  I can’t wait for people to read this book and realize that it may or may not be the enemies to lovers story that they are looking for.  It’s much more than that.  A richly written romance with some spice and a dash of suspense/mystery to keep you guessing in the end.
I can’t wait for the masses to get their hands on this one.  Ms, Lynx has written a beautiful book about redemption, second chances, learning to take a chance on love and finding yourself in the end with that special someone.  Edgar and Evaleen’s story has a permanent place in my heart.  It is that good.  Especially for a new to me author.  Ms. Lynx you have a fan for life.  Just need to read Henrik’s book now.
Highly!!!!!

Excerpt

I turned back to end this conversation. “Listen, Chewie—”
“Albert. My name is Albert.” He leaned closer and he wrinkled his forehead in such a way that made it obvious he was fishing for my name. He can keep on fishing because
that was on a need-to-know basis. My mother always said, “Evaleen Bechmann, you are being paranoid,” but in the age of the Internet, giving him my name could be as powerful as giving him a knife.
In a way, I felt bad for Chewie-Albert. The poor guy obviously never learned how to deal with a woman. He believed groping me and refusing to take the hint that I
didn’t want to go out with him was normal. And that’s just sad he’s so oblivious.
“Okay, Albert. You seem like a nice, if not, handsy Star Wars . . . purist. You got a killer costume that any other Star Wars purist of the female species would love—”
“I hear ya.” He winked, nodding as his eyes perused my form.
Sighing, I realized in that moment the Wookie wasn’t getting it. I shouldn’t be surprised, every man I had met hadn’t gotten it. They touched and they took, but they
didn’t understand. That’s why I avoided them. Preferring to remain alone.
“I am not that female, Albert. I am the type of female who chooses to not dress in fur costumes, or skimpy princess costumes, or costumes in general. This female just
likes to stand in a line and be left alone. So, good luck finding your princess, but I am as far from a princess as you will find around here.”
His shining brown eyes dimmed as my words began to sink in. Before he could get any more Wookie courage, I turned back to find the blonde still at the counter. Normally, I
left people alone because, unlike Albert, I respected their space. But surviving on only three hours of sleep before an interview for a job that I needed, action was necessary.
Taking a step forward, I tapped the blonde on her bulbous shoulder and took a breath. 
“Excuse me, Miss, but I believe it has been ten minutes, which is plenty of time to order your drink. Some of us don’t have the luxury of time, and were kept up by our roommate doing gymnastics in bed with her boyfriend until four in the morning.” I gritted my teeth and shook my head trying to get back on point. “So, if you wouldn’t mind placing your order and letting the rest of us have a turn . . .”
Just as I finished, the woman turned to face me.  She had a beard. Also, an Adam’s apple. The woman wasn’t a she but a he. He had a beard, lush and blond like his long hair, not fake and matted like Albert’s costume. His eyes were the most beautiful gray, like smoke rising from a smoldering fire. They slid over my face.
I shivered.
“Miss?” His deep, velvety tone came out thick as butter and rendered me utterly catatonic. The timbre of his voice like a sonic boom under my skin. His skin, on the other
hand, remained still, smooth, and my fingers, for reasons I am attributing to lack of sleep, twitched to touch any part of him.
His eyes widened at what I could only assume was disbelief. Disbelief that a woman of twenty-six years would be referring to a fine specimen of a man, a manly man if
you will, as a woman. Despite his thick blond mane and skirted attire, he was all muscle.
I realized this man was in costume too, like Chewie. Only this man was dressed like the Scottish hero William Wallace and not a sweaty sci-fi version of Sasquatch. He
even painted his face blue and white. 
One would think that a tall man with thick muscles and a wild painted face would instill fear in me, but no. Instead of running in terror, I did the opposite. I laid my hands on him. My fingers caressed his chest working their way down. Doing the exact thing I just lectured Albert not to do. I should have probably stopped.
But I didn’t. Never in my life had I taken advantage of anyone in this manner but he gave off some pheromone that screamed sex me with your hands. Sensing quickly how firm his chest was it propelled me farther down, down to his abs. The man had a six-pack or maybe even an eight-pack; whatever pack was hiding under that brown
threadbare piece of cashmere was making my heart race and lady parts start to turn savage themselves.
“What are you doing?”
He was still there and I was still in the coffee shop. This wasn’t a dream. The kilted blond’s voice broke me out of my self-gratifying pawing and I realized I was
feeling him up, or down as the case may be.
What are you doing, Evaleen?
I froze before snapping my hands away. I began to smooth out my unwrinkled brown blazer as if I wasn’t a chest molester and nothing out of the ordinary just happened.
Clearing my throat, I tried to salvage what little dignity I had left.
“I . . . I . . .” Was all I could get out before I turned to look at the raven-haired barista who either had a rare eye condition that caused her to shoot fire at anyone she laid eyes upon, or she hated me right now. I was going with the latter, so I turned my gaze to the line of customers who had their phones turned up to face me as they filmed what had been occurring. Including Albert.
Great, not only am I mortified, but I will now be some viral Internet sensation known only as, The Woman Chest Molester. Now it was the kilter’s turn to tap his foot as he folded his thick, strong arms in front of himself in protection from the mad chest molester. He’ll probably tell tales to his future kids and grandkids of the crazy chest molester.
“Be wary of her,” he’d say in a low warning with his dialect suddenly turning from American to Scottish. After all, he was dressed as William Wallace.  As he crept down to their eye level, and as the window panes would rattle from the storm that swirled outside his Scottish castle, he would whisper, “For if wee girls and boys don’t do as they’re told, the wiry fingers of the deranged chest molester will grab hold!” The kids would cower, holding their blankets to their little faces; one girl would begin to cry as he wrapped his powerful arms gently around her tiny frame in comfort. 

He’d calm her as he broke out into an old Gaelic tune. 
I start humming out loud the only Gaelic tune I know, which wasn’t really a Gaelic tune but it’s Scottish, so close enough. 
The barista interrupted my musical display, “Is that ‘I Would Walk 500 Miles’?”
I frowned in shame at what I had become in these past few minutes.
“Blue eyes,” the kilted blond mumbled as he stared at me.

Title: Girl Crush
Author: Stephie Walls
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 21, 2017
Blurb
I was done.
Done with men.
Women say it all the time; they get fed up, throw their hands in the air, and vow a life of celibacy—until the next chiseled chest comes into view and then they’re foaming at the mouth and wiping the drool from their chins. But this was different, I really meant it.
I’d been manhandled by the last pig that would ever bring his sausage near me. After one of the nastiest divorces in history, followed by some of the crudest and raunchiest dates, I’d decided to bat for the other team. 
…At least I tried.
But creating the next Brat Pack hadn’t been on the agenda. Neither had Collier West. And I wasn’t prepared for finding true love at the end of my gal-pal tryst.
Ever read a book that lived up to more than you imagined?  Like the blurb is only the beginning of the laugh fest awaiting you?  And the author or heroine has the same obsession that you do with nail polish?  Especially OPI nail polish.  This is that book.  I swear, I read it on Sunday afternoon, I never stopped giggling.  When I read the blurb at first, I didn’t really know what to expect.  Honestly, I figure some F/F experimentation but we don’t get that at all if that’s what puts you off from reading it.  Don’t do that.  This book is a definite keeper on the Kindle.
This book is just too hilarious NOT to read.  Let’s start with Gizzy, the heroine.  She’s older (Thank God!), divorced and tired of idiotic men in her bed.  She is a basic dead-end job but it pays well.  Overall, I didn’t think she really liked herself and felt stuck.  Her bestie is Roxie and a lesbian.  Gizzy decides that she needs to start dating women and goes to Roxie for advice.  Needless to say, Ronnie isn’t that helpful at all.  In fact, at times, I really hated Roxie.  She was too abrasive for me and her treatment of Gizzy.  I felt like she was just projecting her own relationship woes on Gizzy which wasn’t fair.  That said, she finally did step up in the end when it really counted.
Beck, to me, is the best secondary character in the book.  She is Gizzy “first” but also someone that Gizzy counts on when the chips are really down.  I also felt that Roxie was there for Gizzy, too.  Those two really made Gizzy really look at herself and her relationship with men.  They never made fun of her (like Ronnie did) and I felt like they were true friends to her.  I won’t spoil the rest of the book but Gizzy finally gets to be herself around men and it’s a profound change for her.  No pressure, since the men in the book “think” that she bats for the other team.
The situations that Gizzy finds herself in are the hilarious parts of the book and there are many.  You will laugh out loud and then shake your head, too.  The hero in the book is a dream.  I didn’t understand him at first but once his relationship with Gizzy starts, I fell in love with him.  He is perfect for Gizzy and really gets her.  I’m going to leave it at that because you just HAVE to read this book.
Ms. Walls scores the hat trick, walk-off home run, winning field goal and the gold medal with Girl Crush.  She delivers one of the best rom-com that I have read in years.
Highly!!!!!
