Synopsis
Marry me. 

Two words Kalli Montgomery never expected to say out loud to Xavier Cruz, even though she's been in love with the sexy, single father for as long as she can remember. Unfortunately, she hasn't just been friend-zoned for the past ten years. No, even worse, he's treated her like a little sister, no matter how hard she tried to prove she could be so much more. When she agrees to spend the summer as the caregiver for his daughter, Lily, she knows it's her last chance to finally make him take notice. 

As unexpected circumstances threaten to disrupt his home life, Xavier's desperate to keep his family together. He'll do whatever it takes, even if it means marrying a woman he doesn't love. For Xavier and Lily, Kalli will do just about anything, even at the risk of getting her heart broken in the process. 

Little does she know, sometimes love isn't quite as unrequited as one may think. Xavier sees her-he always has. And the vow he made all those years ago never to go there with his best friend's little sister is wavering, and it's wavering fast. When they come up with a plan that leads to wedding bells, it's a no brainer. 

This marriage of convenience has one rule: absolutely no falling in love. 

Easier said than done. Throw together a girl who believes rules are meant to be broken, and a man whose whole career revolves around following orders and you get a recipe for disaster. What could possibly go wrong?

Excerpt
Shooting a glare at him, I throw my hands up in exasperation. “Are you telling me that this whole anticipation thing is one-sided? Is it that easy for you to resist? I really need to step up my game.”
      Xavier’s eyes fall to my lips for a quick moment before he looks back up at me. I see the desire in his expression, and without him even saying a word, I know he wants this, too. So why is he making me wait?
      “You have no idea how much I want to kiss you right now. How many times I’ve thought of doing just that. Every time you were curled up against me on the couch, I wanted to kiss you.  Every morning when you showed up, I wanted to kiss you. Every time you said goodnight to Lily and then slipped out my door? I wanted to kiss you before you left. It’s not a new development. The first time I ever saw you, Kalli, I wanted to kiss you. And I’ve wanted to ever since.”
      His admission floors me. He’s told me before that he “saw” me, but I had no clue it was from the very beginning. I’m not really sure how to process it. In fact, he beats me to the punch.
      “So now you know. This will be just as hard for me, but it will be so damn worth it. Because when you’ve wanted something for as long as I’ve wanted you? It’ll be the best feeling in the world when I finally get it.”
      “Our first kiss will be that epic?”
      “A first kiss to rival them all,” he quips, grinning at me. He holds his arms out wide. “Now, we’ll start with a hug and work our way up.”
      “I feel like I’m sixteen again,” I tell him as I wrap my arms around his waist.
      His hands come down to my back and he gives me a big squeeze, my head pressing against his firm chest. I love this feeling of being in his arms, him holding me close. There’s nowhere on the planet I’d rather be than right here with him. As much as I want him, I know he’s right. I don’t care when it comes. Because when it does, our first kiss will be unforgettable.
      His chest rumbles as he chuckles. He squeezes me tight one last time before letting me go. “And it’s only just the beginning,” he tells me. “Have a good night, crazy girl.”

Every Breath You Take (Billionares In Disguise: Georgie, Rock Stars in Disguise: Xan) by Blair Babylon with Excerpt

Brand-new New Adult Rock Star Romance
from USA Today-Bestselling Author Blair Babylon!
What happens when a Rock Star in Disguise meets a Billionaire in hiding?
Georgie doesn’t know who she is dating.

At a high society wedding, Georgie Johnson is introduced to Alexandre de Valentinois, a hereditary duke of nothing who flies around the world on his private planes and describes himself as “one of those despicable, idle rich men.” Yet, when pressed, he sings at the wedding in a gorgeous, clear tenor that tugs at Georgie’s soul, and miraculously, he calms her paralyzing stage fright so she can accompany him on the piano, even though she thought she had left her classical music career behind when she went into hiding.

But Alexandre has a dark side. His name is Xan Valentine, and he’s the rock star front man for Killer Valentine. He’s famous, but his paparazzi-dogged lifestyle might expose Georgie and get her killed.

Excerpt:
Alex said, so quietly, “Play something for me.”
Her hands stretched over the keys, and she tried to push them down to play even a major chord, but as soon as a key neared the break point, just when the hammer inside the piano was poised to strike the string, something in her mind shouted Don’t! and she couldn’t press it.
Alex asked gently, “Does Flicka know you’re worse?”
“I don’t see how she would. We’ve been out of touch for a few years.”
“But she knows that you’ve got—” he paused, obviously considering whether to say the terrible words, “a problem with this.”
“She must have forgotten about it,” rather than that Flicka had decided to punish Georgie in a spectacularly cruel way.
Maybe Georgie deserved to try to face her fears, melt into an incoherent puddle on the floor, and have everyone from her childhood and current best friends laugh at her failure.
It would serve her right.
But she would never be able to walk as far as the piano in front of all those people, so Flicka couldn’t have her poetic justice.
“Anyway,” she said, “I can’t do it.”
“I can help you,” Alex said.
“And how could you do that? Hypnotize me? Doesn’t work. Psychoanalysis? There’s nothing there.”
“Of course not, but I don’t want you to play for them.” He leaned across the piano again, and his hair slid from behind his shoulder and hung, reflected in the black gloss of the piano’s lacquer. “I want you to play for me.”
Georgie stared down at her spidery hands hanging over the black and white piano keys. “I can’t.”
He walked around the piano and stood beside her, his slim hip right beside her cheek. A faint, masculine scent wafted from his clothes, a cologne, something soothing like green herbs. She was acutely aware that she could lean about six inches over and unzip his fly with her teeth.
Alex said, in a low, soft voice, “Play the middle C.”
She laid her thumb on the white key right in front of her waist and held it there, but she didn’t push down.
Alex stroked her arm from her elbow to her wrist with the back of his hand, soothing her. “Play it.”
She told her finger to push down, and she let the weight of her arm fall on her finger that was curled above the keys.
Her finger collapsed and wouldn’t press the key.
Alex shook his head, and his long hair swished over his shoulders. He turned his hand over so that his palm was on her wrist, and then he slid his hand over hers, covering her fingers on the keys with his own. Calluses on pads of his fingers were hard on the tops of her fingers.
He stepped behind her, still not moving his fingers over hers. Warmth from his body drifted out of his suit jacket that opened around them, spreading over her bare back, and his cologne filled her nose like she was walking in the fields around Tanglewood.
He leaned over her, stretching his arms on both sides of her, caging her.
His whisper brushed the skin on her neck. “I’m not forcing you to do something you don’t want to. I’m letting you have what you want most, what you crave, but you dare not admit, even to yourself.”
“I’m afraid,” Georgie admitted, her voice breathy from fear at pressing that note and from his body so close to hers.
“Everyone is, in the beginning,” he said. “It can be terrifying to have an experience so desired, so primal, that you lose yourself. You have to trust me to take you through the place that terrifies you, to keep you safe, and to hold you until you emerge on the other side.”
Georgie couldn’t seem to catch her breath or move away from him. “We’re still talking about the piano here?”
Alex chuckled.
“Just the piano,” she said, but she leaned back, almost imperceptibly, maybe an inch, so that his mouth was so near her skin that his breath was a hot circle on her bare shoulder, and the scent of champagne in his mouth rolled down her skin.
“Let me do it for you, first,” he whispered.
Georgie closed her eyes, and the weight of his finger forced hers down.
A single note, a C, rang out of the piano and jarred against her skin.

Haydens Verse (Devil's Despair #2) by AC Bextor Release Blitz with Excerpt & Teasers





BUY LINKS:





I’m known to my friends as a player; a user of women.

I don’t believe in relationships. They’re messy and confusing. They don’t last.
Lacey Wells walked into my life and ruined it. Although not in the traditional sense, we made the decision to be ‘exclusive’. We used each other to satisfy our bodies’ want of lust and attraction. And we had this…for a time.

When uncontrollable events altered the arrangement and life as we knew it had fallen to circumstance, my reactions weren’t only punishing, they were painful and cruel. I pushed her away, causing her heartache, but in return, she refused to break. Instead, she challenged my will at every turn. She was determined to make me see the person I always was, but had never been. I was desperate and searching for the answer I was so anxious to have…

Was I capable of falling in love?

Our path together was tumultuous and unforgiving. At times, it was full of anger and resentment. But it was also fun and sometimes downright ridiculous.

There’s no label to our story; tales of clichĂ© pale in comparison. It just happened. It was us. It was crazy and it was exactly what we made it.

Note: There are no love triangles or cheating that takes place within this story. It’s a HEA; however, the road to getting there is full of angst, sadness, and regret. If you aren’t a reader who enjoys the element of angst or heartache, this book isn’t one you’d find enjoyment in reading.

Due to content, this book should not be purchased by readers under the age of 18.




“Say it, Travis,” she repeats, walking toward him. He flinches when he notices her getting closer.

“Fine. You wanna fuck the playboy, fuck the playboy.”

“That’s not exactly what we agreed to, is it?” Her hands are on her hips, her foot cocked to the side. She’s not backing down at all. Now that I sense things will be okay, I take a second to sum her up. 

I want inside her again.

“Hayden and I are friends, Trav. We’re friends who made an adult decision to sleep together, to have sex, to fuck.”

“He’s not who you think he is,” Travis mumbles, but I hear him as clearly as if he’s said it in my ear. The hurt is painfully difficult to swallow.

“Well, big brother, he has a big cock and I like it, so that’s enough for me, I guess.”

I let out a short laugh and look to the ground in attempt to hide my smile. Travis, letting this register, sits up on his elbows and although it takes him a few seconds, he finds me in the room still standing by the door. His whine echoes off the walls, “My sister?”

“Yes!” She slams the pillow she yanks off the floor and it hits his face with a bounce. He’s too drunk to deflect her quick action.

Finally, though, he concedes. “Okay! What the fuck ever. Just don’t come to me when he breaks your heart.” Forgetting I’m still standing in the same room, he continues explaining what he thinks he knows about me. “He will, Lacey. He’ll fuck you and leave you. That’s what he does.”

“God, you’re such an asshole!” she yells while throwing the other pillow at him and leaving him to sulk in his drunken state alone. 

“Lace, it’s okay.” I try to calm her but she’s coming right at me. 

“It’s definitely not okay, Hayden. Hope it’s all right ‘cause I’m staying the night. I’m not taking his drunk ass home and I’m not leaving him here alone with you,” she announces to the room, walking past me down my hallway. She has no clue where my bedroom is so she keeps opening doors along the way.

Before following her in, I walk to Trav lying on the couch with his eyes closed. “I like her, Trav,” I whisper, making this a confession to myself more than him. “We’re having fun.”

I start to walk away, but hear him call behind me, “Don’t hurt her, Hayden. I just got her. Please don’t take her away.”

His soft plea reaches out into the empty space between us. Locking the front door, I answer his return with one of my own. “It won’t be her who gets hurt in this, friend. It’ll be me.”









AC Bextor lives in a small town in the Midwest. When she's not writing she can be found reading or watching her favorite sports teams. She enjoys spending time outside fishing, swimming, or camping.

Her first book, Holding On - Lights of Peril, published in October 2013.




Wrapped Around Him (Moroad MC Series #1) by Debra Kayn Release Blitz with Giveaway, Excerpt & Playlist

Title: Wrapped Around Him
Series: Moroad MC Series #1
Author: Debra Kayn
Genre: Adult, Motorcycle Club Romance
Release Date: February 3, 2015
Empathy is an emotion that has always evaded Cam Farrell, president of the Moroad Motorcycle Club and prisoner #18794. He's gambled with his life to finish the gun chain running across the states, get the majority of his MC brothers working inside the prison system, and place the smoke screen in Federal, Idaho. He only needs one more thing—Christina. What he wants, he takes, and freedom doesn't mean a damn thing.

Christina Nickelson keeps to herself and uses her part-time job for Silver Valley's Department of Children's Services to help those who are also alone and hurting. The anger and fear she thought she'd overcome after her parents were murdered resurfaces when an ex-convict and leader of a motorcycle club claims a teenage boy in her care. She can't let her worries go. Putting herself at risk, she finds herself held hostage, witnessing a murder, and questioning fate. The only person she can rely on is the biker who will kill her if she tries to leave.

He rolled back over to the edge of the bed, grabbed the pistol, and slid it back under her pillow. She pulled her head up.
"What are you doing?" she asked, unable to hold in the shriek of fear.
His mouth softened, guiding her head back to the pillow. "I'm going to kiss you and when I'm done doing that, I'm going to touch you, and when you're ready, I'm going to fuck you. At any time you get scared and want me to stop, you've got the pistol and can shoot me."
"Cam…" Her mouth opened to protest, but no words came out.
"Shoot me, baby," he whispered as his lips came down and captured hers.
Shocked, the overwhelming sensation of suffocating kept her from fighting him off. She held her breath, going through what he'd told her.
Shoot him?
She could shoot him.
She would shoot him.

5 stars
This was a fast paced, excellent beginning to this series. If you have a chance to read it, grab it up and do so, you won't regret it. I loved the differences between Cam and Christina, the main characters. Night and day, but perfect for each other. Not that it's easy, but worthwhile things never are. The unexpected twists are fantastic and take you where things just get real. I love reading MC books, and I read a lot. If you've ever been around an MC, you know the difference between someone who knows what they're talking about and someone who's making things up. Debra knows what she's talking about, and I absolutely love it!

 
Her love of family ties and laughter makes her a natural to write heartwarming contemporary stories to the delight of her readers. Oh, let's cut to the chase. She loves to write about REAL MEN and the WOMEN who love them. 

When Debra was nineteen years old, a man kissed her without introducing himself. When they finally came up for air, the first words out of his mouth were…will you have my babies? Considering Debra's weakness for a sexy, badass man, who is strong enough to survive her attitude, she said yes. A quick wedding at the House of Amour and four babies later, she's living her own romance book.
