Blog Tour for His Alone by Alexa Riley

goodreads-badge.png








Ryan Justice may be her boss, but nothing will stop him from making her his. USA TODAY and #1 ebook bestselling author Alexa Riley entices with a brand-new, full-length novel.

She thinks I'm perfect. A good boss, a good man. She thinks that I play by the rules.

She has no idea who I truly am. Why I'm really here.

Paige Turner is trying to outrun her past, but there it is, tossed back in her face anytime she manages to get two steps ahead.

She has no idea what a man like me will do to get what he wants.

Her need for Ryan got in the way of revenge, took her off course. Redirected her focus. Before she knew it, he'd made his way into her life. Into her heart.

I'm dirtier than she knows. She thinks I'm good to the core, but she doesn't know the things I've done. The things I would do for her.

True love doesn't let secrets as big as these stay buried. And when the truth about Paige's father is finally exposed, Ryan will do anything to fix everything. Paige has always been his and his alone.





He takes his lips away from my neck, and I see a flash of his deep green eyes filled with desire before he claims my mouth with his. His tongue pushes past my lips in a searing kiss. His normally controlled body shakes slightly and I can feel him fighting to control himself, wanting to pull back from me. Wanting to pull back from where we are going.

“Don’t fight it,” I whisper against his lips as he starts to do so. “I like it when you let go. Let the perfect gentleman you always try to be slip away for me. I like this dirty, deeper part of you that comes out to play with me. I like that I make it come out.”

“I promise he only comes out for you, kitten.”

“Show me. I need this,” I plead, looking up at him. I want him to snap, make the world melt away for me.

He captures my wrists in one strong hand. His mouth comes back down on mine, and I moan into his mouth, letting him take me and push me further into the soft bed. Something about him makes me want to let go, to not think about anything but getting lost in him. So I do. I drop my legs from around him and let them fall open farther, giving him the invitation to do whatever he wants with me.

His hand moves under my T-shirt and up my thigh. It trails up slower than I’d like, the torture bittersweet as I rock against him, wanting more. Wanting his hand between my legs. He growls into my mouth, deepening the kiss as his tongue makes love to mine. There’s still a restrained need in his body, and I want him to unleash all of it on me.

He pulls away abruptly, and I try to sit up, needing his mouth. I have to have it back on mine. I don’t care if I need oxygen. I want to keep kissing him forever. I want to stay in this moment forever.

“I want to feel all of you.” I yank at my hands, and he reluctantly frees me. I wrap them around his neck, pulling him back to me and taking another kiss. He claims my mouth, and I’ve never been so taken. After we’re both breathless, he breaks the kiss and rests his forehead against mine.

“Kitten.” He says my name like a prayer, with so many emotions in his voice. I can see him fighting himself, and I want to make him snap. Why do I love pushing him so much?

I drop my hand from around his neck and go to the buckle of his pants. I fumble with his belt, pulling it free. I go to fling it across the room, but he snatches it from me.

“Hands on the headboard,” he growls, his tone catching me off guard. “I’ll give you what you want, but you’ll do as I tell you.”

His words send a thrill through me, all the way down to my toes, and I swear I can feel them tingle. My dirty Captain is coming back out to play. I slowly raise my hands to the headboard. I wrap my fingers around the metal bar and do as he says.

He flashes a predatory smile as he wraps the belt around my wrists and through the bars. My heart pounds in my chest and my body clenches with want. I have to bite back a moan as I watch him do it. Don’t get me wrong, I always thought sex with Captain would be good, but I didn’t think it would go like this. He didn’t strike me as kinky, but maybe I’m so vanilla myself that I think this is a kink.

I lick my lips, wondering what he’ll do next…

Blog Tour for Just one Spark by Jami Wagner

Today we have the blog tour for JUST ONE SPARK by Jami Wagner! Check out this fantastic new book and grab your copy April 12th!


Just One Spark

Title: Just One Spark 
Author: Jami Wagner
Release Day: April 12th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Just One Spark:

All Beth Moyer wanted was a one-night stand, an evening to relax and cut loose before she went to work at her new grown-up job. Instead, all she got was a few minutes that left her mortified and another reason why you can never trust a man.

Maverick Mitchell is ready to prove he’s learned from his mistakes and move forward. But before it’s time to buckle down, one last fling won’t hurt. Or so he thought. On the first day of his new start, the feisty redhead he met over the weekend is the first person he sees.

An office romance isn’t the smartest idea. Sneaking around is an even worse one, but neither can deny the fire that has sparked between them. Considering Beth and Maverick are competing for the same position and only one will be offered the job, they can only hope that every choice they’ve made doesn’t end up in flames.

Excerpt

Maverick

“I mean, you really don’t need any more distractions than you have already,” he says. Then he moves his gaze to Beth. “Be sure to ask Mav why he’s here. We never really got to cover it last night, what with you two practically having sex in public and all.”
           
“I’ll keep that in mind,” she replies, her gaze meeting mine just briefly. “After we start with our introduction, I think should keep the feel more positive and focus on what TACM can be doing instead of what they haven’t done.”
           
“I agree,” I say and smile at Austin. “Is there anything else?”
           
His eyes narrow once more before he turns for my door. He leaves the door both unlocked and open when he leaves.
           
I chuckle a bit before returning to the discussion of our presentation.

           
“This isn’t funny, Maverick.”
           
I love how she still calls me by my full name. Only she could make it sound so seductive.
           
“It kind of is,’ I say.
           
Her brow peaks and I nod.
           
“You’re right. It’s not funny.”           
           
“That can’t happen again,” she tells me, but even as she says it, I don’t think even she believes her own words.           
           
Almost immediately, it’s like every person on the floor has to walk by my office, their eyes meeting mine. The last man, whose name I don’t know, nearly breaks his neck while peering past my door.
           
It’s like they are all waiting for me to fail. To be the guy they probably heard I was.
           
Aside from the fact I just broke my father’s number one rule and that, if reported, would reflect on the final decision to promote me, Beth’s chances of making it here after ninety days will be stronger if people don’t know there’s anything between us.

Which should be easy, because there isn’t.
           
“Again, you’re absolutely right.” I keep my eyes focused on the computer in front of me as I swivel it back around. “I’ll review this and send you an email. I’m sure most of what we want to accomplish today can be done with you in your office and me in mine.”
           
“Maverick, I didn’t mean it like that. I just meant—”
           
“Either way, I’m not offended, but I do think it’s for the best.”

“Sure, Mav. Of course,” she replies, her tone dry and that pink color taking over her cheeks.

“Would you mind closing my door?” I ask just as she is stepping into her own space.

Ah, she must not have heard me.

When she’s gone, I lean back in my chair and let out a sigh. If anyone knew what I was thinking right now, they would recognize every ounce of frustration this sigh represents. I finally meet a woman I can’t stop thinking about and she’s off limits.

I’m resisting every urge I have right now to start making my own rules.

Somehow, no matter what I decide to do, I have the feeling I’m still making all the wrong choices.

The Best Man Synopsis
Veronica Webber is single again after being in a loveless marriage way past its expiration date. For the first time in a very long time, she feels free and after being burned so badly by love in the past, any thought of romance is the last thing on her mind.
In walks a man from her past, Trevor Allen, a tall, dark, and handsome womanizer who is usually all about the bottom line. For Trevor that bottom line has always been made up of the countless notches on his bedpost. But when he sees Veronica after so many years, he can’t help but be drawn to her and know her again… even if that means being friend-zoned from the start.
As this unlikely pair spends more and more time together, they quickly realize that there might be something between them that goes past "just friends." But there’s just one tiny detail that makes this situation slightly more complicated… Trevor was Veronica’s ex-husband’s best man at their wedding nine years ago.
So when past mistakes and indiscretions come back to haunt them, will their happily ever after end before it even gets started?
Or will the best man win this time.

Excerpt

“What the...you have got to be shitting me?”


“What was that?” the bartender asked me when he brought back my change.

“Is that a Donna Summer song that came on the jukebox just now? Am I being punked right now?”

“Um, I don’t know what you’re talking about, dude.”

I turned around, ignoring the bartender who was probably too young to know a good goddamn about music other than maybe the Biebs. Poor guy. The bartender, not the Biebs.

My dick was practically hiding at this point. It was sad and lonely, and apparently had a thing for disco classics. Or rather, it had a thing for one woman who had a thing for disco classics. And in no uncertain terms, my dick was going to be a dick tonight.

Since when did I have...Jesus, I could barely bring myself to think it. Since when did I have feelings?

Or a conscience, I guess is what it’s called too. I’m not sure because I’ve never fucking had one before when it came to a woman. And the best part about all of this was that Veronica wasn’t even an option. So what? My dick would just keep making decisions based on whether disco would be played anywhere I went? The fuck was that about?

“Are you ready?” Liv asked.

I was going to do it. Actually, I was going to not do it...the sex. God help me, I would apparently rather go home alone and, I don’t know, take up knitting or some shit instead of taking Liv home and fucking her every way to Sunday.

“Actually, Liv, I’m going to have to take a rain check,” I said as smoothly as possible.

She cocked her head to the side. Obviously, she hadn’t seen this coming either. “Is everything okay?”

“Yeah, yeah,” I lied, because I was not okay. “It’s some work stuff that just came up. Jack and I had a last-minute thing that—”

“It’s okay, Trevor, you don’t have to explain,” she said. Liv gathered her things before planting a light kiss on my lips. “Rain check it is, then. See you later, handsome.”

I watched Liv walk out of the lounge and turn left once she was outside to go wherever the hell she went when we weren’t together. Maybe she would call on another man, one just like me that she had a list of to fall back on if idiots like me fell through. All I knew was that my sure thing for tonight was now a distant memory, and fucking Donna Summer was to thank for all of this.

“Last dance, my ass, Donna,” I muttered, pulling out bills to leave a tip.

“What was that?” the bartender asked.

“Nothing. Keep the change.”

An unexpected love worth fighting for...
Pro snowboarder, Reef Reed, is on the precipice. His chance of winning the world championship is within reach.

His relationship with Ford is tested in ways Reef couldn’t have fathomed.
Ford Wallace will do anything within his power to help his man soar high and achieve his dreams. But the season has been hard on both of them; watching all Reef’s hard work unravel from afar is unbearable for the healer at heart. So he fights—they both do—for their happiness and love, and they emerge on the other side stronger than ever before.

Whiteout
The moment you get all you ever wanted… Pro-snowboarder, Reef Reid, has it all, except the one thing he desperately wants: the girl, the white picket fence and the happily ever after. At the peak of his career, he turns his back on the upcoming season and flies to a tropical island paradise to defrost. At least that’s where he was supposed to go; a ticketing mishap has him landing in Queenstown, New Zealand, famous for its idyllic ski resorts. Stratford ‘Ford’ Wallace understands attraction to the opposite sex. He’s a true playboy at heart after all; a genuine love ‘em and leave ‘em type. But all that is flipped on its head when the enigmatic Reef Reid literally drops out of the sky. When a whiteout traps them together on a mountaintop, neither expects the explosive attraction that sparks between them. They’re unable to resist each other, but will they give into temptation? Or will the avalanche that tears through the mountain end them?
White Noise
Everything he didn’t know he wanted, and now couldn’t live without… Paramedic and mountain rescuer Stratford ‘Ford’ Wallace fell hard and fast for pro-snowboarder, Reef Reid. For a ‘straight’ guy, falling in love with a dude was not what he expected, but his explosive attraction to Reef is undeniable. Neither of them have uttered those three little words yet, but Ford knows Reef feels the same. At least, he thinks he does. Reef is smashing his pre-season training at Fernie, the idyllic Canadian snow resort, getting wicked air and landing what could be season-winning jumps. What’s even better is that his man is with him. Going home to Ford every night is what Reef always dreamed of— his very own happily ever after. Knowing they’re ready, they take the next step in their relationship— meeting the parents. But when tragedy strikes on the slopes, can Ford push through the painful memories and be what Reef needs? Ford will sacrifice himself, literally putting both his heart and his life on the line, to protect his man. But will it all be for nothing when Reef is presented with an offer that’s too good to refuse?

By night she's a wife and mum and a purveyor of saucy stories that are filled with lust, raunchy scenes and ultimately love. Ann's an avid reader of anything sexy and firmly believes in the motto 'leave mummy alone, she's reading or writing.'

Cover Reveal for All Closed Off by Cora Carmack

AllClosedOff_AnnouncementBanner


From New York Times bestselling author Cora Carmack, comes the highly anticipated fourth standalone title in her Rusk University Series, ALL CLOSED OFF! A passionate story and journey, get ready to be mesmerized with Stella’s story! ALL CLOSED OFF is coming your way May 1, 2017!

ABOUT ALL CLOSED OFF
(Releasing May 1, 2017)

Stella Santos is fine.

Maybe something terrible happened to her that she can’t even remember. And maybe it drives her crazy when her friends treat her like she’s on the verge of breaking because of it. Maybe it feels even worse when they do what she asks and pretend that it never happened at all. And maybe she’s been getting harassing emails and messages for months from people who don’t even know her, but hate her all the same.

But none of that matters because she’s just fine.

For Ryan Blake, Stella was always that girl. Vibrant and hilarious and beautiful. He wanted her as his best friend. His more than friends. His everything and anything that she would give him. Which these days is a whole lot of nothing. She gets angry when he’s there. Angry when he’s not there. Angry when he tries to talk and when he doesn’t.

When Stella devises an unconventional art project for one of her classes all about exploring intimacy—between both friends and strangers—Ryan finds himself stepping in as guinea pig after one of her subjects bails. What was supposed to be an objective and artistic look at emotion and secrets and sex suddenly becomes much more personal. When he hits it off with another girl from the project, Stella will have to decide if she’s willing to do more than make art about intimacy. To keep him, she’ll have to open up and let herself be the one thing she swore she’d never be again.

Vulnerable.
