beard in mind RB banner

Beard in Mind, an all new standalone in the bestselling, romantic comedy Winston Brothers Series by Penny Reid, is LIVE!

BIM-cover (2)

All is fair in love and auto maintenance.

Beau Winston is the nicest, most accommodating guy in the world. Usually.

Handsome as the devil and twice as charismatic, Beau lives a charmed life as everyone’s favorite Winston Brother. But since his twin decided to leave town, and his other brother hired a stunning human-porcupine hybrid as a replacement mechanic for their auto shop, Beau Winston’s charmed life has gone to hell in a handbasket.

Shelly Sullivan is not nice and is never accommodating. Ever.

She mumbles to herself, but won’t respond when asked a question. She glares at everyone, especially babies. She won’t shake hands with or touch another person, but has no problems cuddling with a dog. And her damn parrot speaks only in curse words.

Beau wants her gone. He wants her out of his auto shop, out of Tennessee, and out of his life.

The only problem is, learning why this porcupine wears her coat of spikes opens a Pandora’s box of complexity—exquisite, tempting, heartbreaking complexity—and Beau Winston soon discovers being nice and accommodating might mean losing what matters most.

Seducing Lola Excerpt & Review

SBPRBanner-Seducing-Lola-BT

Seducing Lola
by Jessica Prince
Publication Date: July 18th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Seducing Lola, an all-new romantic standalone from Jessica Prince is available NOW!!

Seducing Lola front cover high res

I’ve had my fair share of bad relationships. I’ve dated liars, cheaters, shoe fetishists, and everything in between. Sure, these experiences would make any woman cynical when it comes to dipping her toe back into the dating pool, but I used my past for good and made a career out of helping other women avoid going down the same paths I had.

And I was damn good at it.

Until a random act of fate set my life on a course I’d been avoiding for years, and put me in the crosshairs of a man that made me feel things I swore to never feel again.

Now I’m in his sights and it seems like he’ll stop at nothing to seduce the hell out of me. He might hold my career in the palm of his hands, but if Grayson Lockhart thinks he can blackmail me into submission with his sexy voice and sexy hands and sexy everything, then he’s…probably right.

Excerpt:

Prologue

If you’d have asked my twenty-year-old self what I saw in my future ten years down the road, I probably would’ve answered the same way as every other naïve co-ed living the college dream on Sorority Row.

I’d be married to the love of my life, raising our two perfect children in the suburbs—because the city is no place to bring up a family, obviously—and driving a top-of-the-line SUV that all the minivan moms would envy because I had way too much style to ever be caught dead driving a minivan.

Clearly, my twenty-year-old self was an idiot.

It was she who forgave—then was subsequently dumped by—my college sweetheart after finding him pile-driving my sorority sister from behind on the handmade quilt I’d spent countless hours creating out of his old high school football T-shirts as a birthday present. His brilliant excuse?

“You’re just not adventurous enough, Lola. She’s willing to try things in bed that you aren’t.”

Apparently refusing to allow him to film us having sex and entering it into a contest on a porn site was just too vanilla for him. Last I heard, he was making a killing on the amateur scene.

Unfortunately, my twenty-one and twenty-two-year-old selves weren’t all that smart either.

It was my twenty-one-year-old self who discovered I’d unwittingly been made a beard by Brad, the guy I had dated for six months, because his evangelical parents just “wouldn’t understand.”

BTW, Brad and Phillip’s wedding was a really lovely affair. He asked me to stand as his best woman—since he considered our relationship the reason he finally made his way out of the closet—but I turned down the honor, choosing instead to get annihilated on mojitos at the open bar.

My twenty-two-year-old self thought I had finally found a decent guy. That was until I came home to find him doing something I’ll never be able to unsee to a pair of Louboutins I’d spent the better part of a year saving up for.

The saddest part? I hadn’t even had a chance to wear them before his defilement. I didn’t have the heart to throw them in the trash, so I let him take them with him when I kicked his ass out.

I should’ve known better, honestly. It wasn’t like I’d grown up in a home with my very own personal June and Ward Cleaver. Oh no, my parents split when I was only six years old. And it was anything but amicable. My mom never kept her hatred for my father secret. And dear old Dad never hid the string of women he kept on tap, one for whatever mood he may’ve been in. It was shocking that I hadn’t grown bitter at an even younger age, having to deal with their drama, but I was in my early twenties and still a believer in happily ever afters.

Like I said, I was an idiot.

Now I know what you’re thinking. After three miserable failures, I was probably a jaded cynic who was convinced true love didn’t exist.

Well, you’d only be half right. See, I believed in love, sure… as long as it was happening to anyone other than me. I’d been the fateful target of that bastard Cupid’s stupid-ass arrow three times already; I had no desire to go for a fourth. I wasn’t anti-relationship when it came to other people. To each their own and all that jazz. And I didn’t hate men. I just didn’t believe they were of any use to me for anything other than a few hours of fun that eventually led to a—hopeful—mutual release before I sent them on their way.

I learned from my mistakes, grown wise as the years passed. I knew exactly what I wanted out of my life, and believe me, there wasn’t a shitty picket fence in sight. If the suburbs were for families, then the city was exactly where I was meant to be. I was a successful, accomplished thirty-two-year-old woman who’d gotten where I was in life by hard work, perseverance, and the cluelessness of women all around the world.

My name was known in households all throughout Washington State. I, along with my two best friends, hosted Seattle’s most successful female-based talk radio show, aptly titled Girl Talk. I’d managed to make more money in the past ten years by offering relationship advice to helpless women than I’d ever know what to do with.

It was safe to say the rose-colored glasses were off. I lived in the real world where men cheated and women drowned their sorrows in vats of Ben & Jerry’s.

Sure, I wasn’t living the future I saw for myself when I was twenty, but then again, at twenty, I still thought Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were meant to be, that Wedding Crashers was cinematic brilliance, and that the whole Tom Cruise/Oprah couch jumping “I’m in love with Katie Holmes” thing was actually romantic. What the hell did I know back then?

A lot had changed over the years. And as I gazed out the floor-to-ceiling windows of my penthouse apartment, overlooking the Puget Sound, I could honestly say without a shred of doubt that I wouldn’t have it any other way.

About the Author:

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

BOOK REVIEW

I was given a copy of this book. I enjoyed it so I voluntarily chose to review it.

Overall Rating: 3.5 (sXe)

Quick & Dirty summary: Lola is paid to give advice to women about romance. Too bad she isn’t interested in love herself. After years of being honest with women on a radio show she hosts with her two best friends, Lola struggles to be honest with herself, especially when it comes to the handsome executive who challenges her at every turn.

The first fourth of this book is hilarious. I was giggling right and left with Lola’s wise cracks and blunders. There is a bit of physical comedy in the book, but not so much that I found it annoying. Instead, the initial banter between Lola and Grayson is great.

My problem came midway through the book when the pacing of the novel slowed down. The relatively simple conflict driving the plot at the beginning of the story stalls. Instead of moving the narrative along to other issues, Lola seems immature and whiny.

About three fourths of the way through the book, the plot starts to become more interesting as the characters develop. There isn’t a lot of character development in this novel, which is disappointing. But, there is a nice cast of secondary characters that fill in the gap.

Overall I enjoyed reading it. The secondary characters are vivid enough that I’m curious about subsequent novels in what I’m assuming will be a series. And anytime I can giggle my way through a book is time well spent.

Is it worth buying? (Kindle $3.99)

I’d recommend borrowing the book, or, if you have Kindle Unlimited, reading it through KU. Four dollars is a bit steep for a book that has a problem with pacing, but, it’s still a worthwhile read for the funny banter and hot sex scenes.

Something else you might enjoy:

I love Jennifer Crusie! All of her books make me giggle. For a book with at least one similar plot point, try The Cinderella Deal. I enjoyed it.

I was given a complementary copy of the book. I decided to review it after I found that I liked the book.

The Longest Fall (book 1)

Longest Fall

Overall Rating: 3.5 (sXe)

Quick & Dirty summary: Daisy Grace has had in love with her best friend’s brother since she was little, but Mark never noticed her. When Mark started dating Daisy’s friend Janey, she put her school-girl crush aside to be happy for her friend. When Janey dies in a freak accident, Mark slips into a depression that no one can touch, not even his family. But Daisy is determined to reach Mark, no matter what it takes, even if it means loosing her heart again.

This is a short, sweet read. Daisy and Mark are honest, relatively-drama free people who are in an extreme situation. Mark is paralyzed with guilt over Janey’s death and he can’t move forward. Daisy wants to see her friend happy, even if that means he moves on from Janey with someone else. So the emotion from each character seems honest and authentic.

I don’t want to give anything away, and since it’s a short book, there’s not a lot for me to say that wouldn’t spoil it in some way. But I found Mark to be sweet and Daisy to be strong and courageous. Plus, I love that Daisy in an electrician. I love a woman who knows her way around tools.

My only negative is that since this is the first book in a new series, there isn’t enough interaction with secondary characters to make the next books interesting. I’m not invested in Daisy’s brothers or cousins, so I’m not anxious for the next book to be released. The flip side of that, though, is this reads as a complete standalone. If you never read another book in the series, you’ll still finish this one satisfied.

Is it worth buying? (Kindle $2.99)

This book is a little over a hundred pages, so I’m not sure I’d recommend buying it at $3. But, if you had Kindle Unlimited it’s free, so I’d recommend picking it up then. If you don’t have KU, check your local library for a sweet read.

Dating-ish, an all new standalone from the USA Today bestselling Knitting in the City romantic comedy series by Penny Reid is now LIVE!

20170306 Dating ish 01 (2)

‘Dating-ish’ can be read as a standalone, is a full length 100k word novel, and is book #6 in the Knitting in the City Series.

There are three things you need to know about Marie Harris: 1) She’s fed up with online dating, 2) She’s so fed up, she’s willing to forego the annoyance and consider more creative alternatives, and 3) She knows how to knit.

After the most bizarre and irritating first date in the history of humankind, Marie is looking for an alternative to men. With the help of her friends, she quickly identifies a few possibilities:

Need a cuddle? Use a professional cuddler. Need affirmation? Get yourself a life coach. Need an orgasm? Try orgasm meditation! Why does she need the hassle of a romantic partner when she can meet all her needs with paid services?

But then her irritating date resurfaces. And he’s not at all the person she thought he was. And he suggests a different–and crazier–solution to her dilemma . . .

As everyone knows (or will soon come to realize), traditional relations between humans are a thing of the past. Robots are our future. And if robots are our future, then why do we need other people at all?

Dirty Thief Book Review & Release Blitz

 

 

Dirty Players by Tia Louise

Contemporary Romance

Dirty Thief (Book 4)

I received an early copy of this book and voluntarily wrote a review. Although this is book 4 in the series, it is a standalone novel.

Overall Rating: 3.5 (XXX)

Quick & Dirty summary: Ava Wilder is married to the King, and although she used to survive by stealing, she is dedicated to being the wife he needs. Rowan Tate is thankful he married the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen and he will stop at nothing to keep her, and his country, safe. But when Ava’s past begins to haunt her, and women she is connected to through tragedy wind up dead, she must work together with her husband to stop a killer.

This is the 4th book in a series and when I decided to read it, I had no idea that it was a part of a series or that the series was so long. While I could tell that there were backstories that I hadn’t read, I don’t think it detracted from my enjoyment of the novel. In fact, I really like that the story began with Ava and Rowan married. I love that it showed that even once you’re married, the adventure doesn’t end!

Overall this is a fun book. There is a bit of a murder mystery, but it isn’t too difficult to work out “who done it.” That being said, there is a bit of tragedy and suspense that adds some emotional depth to the book. This is layered with a lot of really hot sex scenes. What you get is a couple that seems to be tied to each other emotionally as well as physically, which is nice.

What I didn’t care for so much is how silly Ava acts toward the end. For a girl who spent her childhood in foster homes and on the streets, she doesn’t make the best decisions. There is also a kind of awkwardness in portraying Ava as a sweet, caring person. Tia Louise backs up her characterization of Ava as sweet with some great actions and descriptions, but they seem stilted to me. This might just be me and you won’t have any problems with it.

I think I would have had more of an investment in the novel had I read the entire series. As I mentioned, it’s not necessary to appreciate the book, but I think I would love the characters a bit more because I’d have spent more time with them. That’s the great thing about series!

Is it worth buying? (Kindle $2.99 Release Day Only)

If you’ve been following the series, then of course you need to buy it! But, if you haven’t read the other books, I’d hold off, even with the sale price. While it’s good as a standalone, I think it would be well worth the money to wait and read the other books in the series to further the fun.

Something else you might enjoy:

If you’d like to try a historical romance novel, try Christina Skye’s Come the Night. In this one, the hero is a highwayman, so it’s a nice little inversion of the thief theme.

Excerpt
© TLM Productions LLC, 2017
Rowan
Moving my mouth, I devour her. She keeps pace with me, and while our bodies are wet and slippery, our mouths are inseparable. Lips move, tongues chase. I pull her full upper lip between my teeth, and she sucks my bottom lip into her mouth. We’re making out like teenagers, and I move closer, cupping her ass to pull her flush against me.
My knees bend, and her hand drops between us, grasping my erection and sliding up and down. I groan into her mouth, and her tongue slides along the seam of mine. Her hand moves faster, and I grip the back of her head, fisting her hair. She’s working me, and it feels fucking amazing.
“Ava,” I groan, breaking away, dropping my chin to kiss her shoulder.
She kisses my neck, just before I feel her teeth against my skin, just before she pulls it into her mouth. She’s sucking my neck, jacking me off, and fuck, I’m so close to coming.
My fingers tighten, and I pull her head back. “I need to be inside you.”
Dilated eyes heavy with desire meet mine. “Take me to bed.”
Holding her around the waist, I lift us both from the hot water, grabbing the white terry robe off the hook as we pass. I drape it around Ava’s shoulders before easing her back onto the enormous king-sized bed. She’s on her back, her head on the pillow, and I brace my hands at her sides. My eyes skim over her naked body, lightly pink from the water, scuffed from my beard. Then I lean down to consume her mouth again.
Her lips part, and our tongues stroke and taste. I’m ravenous for her. My frustration and tension once more finds release in most pleasurable way. Her fingers grip my arms, and I dip my tongue into her cherry-mint sweetness. I haven’t stopped kissing her since we entered the bath, but now I’m wanting another taste.
Moving down her body, I stop at her breasts, pulling one nipple into my mouth, circling my tongue, teasing her tip. Her back arches, and she moans. I kiss my way to the other side and pull another stiff peak between my lips, nipping and sucking. I want to mark her. I want to cover her creamy skin in blistering red marks of passion.
“You’re delicious,” I sigh, kissing the top of her ribs. Lavender oil scents her skin.
She laughs and pulls away. “Tickles!”
I smile as I continue to the center of her torso to circle my tongue around her navel before going lower. I kiss her hipbone, biting and sucking another red mark before settling down between her thighs. Holding her hips, I spread her open. A glance up, and I see her stomach rising and falling rapidly with her breaths. Anticipation is the strongest aphrodisiac.
Holding my lips just above her clit, I allow my breath to warm her body. I lightly brush my lips along the crease at the top of her thigh.
She squirms and sighs. “Rowan…”I love driving her crazy. I love keeping her happy. I want nothing more than Ava Wilder-Tate saying my name in that exact note of need and eagerness every time.
