Blitz: Cowboy Town by Kasey Millstead


 
 



Ever since her parents passed away in a tragic car accident, Eden Cross has been living a quiet, stable and predictable life in inner Sydney – the total opposite of her carefree, relaxed, happy-go-lucky past. Her parents passing and the fact she’s an only child meant Eden was left with her best friend, Jules and Matt, her boyfriend of three years as her only family. That was until she discovered something about Matt that would turn her life upside down. Eden leaves Sydney in a hurry and begins an adventure that takes her across four Australian states before she lands in Pine Creek, Northern Territory.

Jackson Henley has lived in Pine Creek his entire life. He runs a massive cattle and cropping station with his twin brother, Jeremy, which they inherited when their parents retired. He’s had a bad experience with relationships courtesy of The Bitch - Dannika, so lately he’s preferred to play the field. That is, until he comes face to face with the stunning brunette beauty who’s behind the bar at the Cow and Calf. The problem is, she won’t tell him her name, she won’t give him the time of day, and she won’t give him a chance to prove himself.

What’s it going to take for Eden to give Jackson a chance? Does he have the patience to even bother fighting for her? How will he handle the competition?

In the end, will Jackson have what it takes to convince Eden to start living again, instead of just existing?


“Hey, gorgeous, can I get another beer?”  I turn my attention from the one-man show and spot Luke, the guy who was here yesterday, and he’s waving an empty glass at me.

“Sure thing,” I reply.  I grab a glass and pull his beer, hand it to him, take his money and return his change. 

“So, Dory’s put ya to work, has she?”

“Just helping her out for tonight,” I smile, then sweep my gaze along the bar checking that no one needs refills.  It’s during this exercise that I spot the man who has just walked in.  My breath gets caught in my throat as I watch him take a seat at the bar.  I see his lips move and he’s smiling at people but it’s too loud to hear what he’s saying.  I’m captivated.  He’s utterly gorgeous.  The epitome of Cowboy Hot.  His hair is dark and his jaw is square.  His body is built – broad across the shoulders and narrowing slightly at his hips.  He spots someone across the bar and hands them a fully-fledged, bright white, straight-toothed smile.  My breath leaves me in a whoosh, and then catches again as what has to be his twin slides onto the stool beside him.  Oh my fucking god. 

I’ve got a job to do.  I have to pull it together.  It’s not like I’ve never been in contact with good looking guys before.  I worked in one of Sydney’s hottest bars for four years for fuck’s sake.  I mentally slap myself across the face and tell myself to pull it together.  Then I walk across to where they’re sitting and set about getting their order.

“What’ll it be, boys?” I ask in my most relaxed I’m-not-affected-by-you-at-all voice.

Hotty One unashamedly rakes his gaze over my body.  Slowly.  So slowly, I feel my blood start to heat – just from him looking at me.  I must be going mad.  Perhaps it’s the heat up here.  I’m not used to it all.  I really should have worn some linen shorts instead of jeans.

“You, later,” he winks suggestively when he finally pulls his eyes to mine.  Now, don’t get me wrong – the wink was hot.  Fucking hot.  It was the way he said it that turned me off.  You know those guys that can get anyone they want?  Yeah, they’re not so bad.  It’s the ones who can get anyone they want, and they know it, and they show it – that’s the turn off.  Just with that line, Hotty One has shown me he’s a player, unfaithful, untrustworthy and most definitely not the kind of guy I want to get involved with – in bed, or out of.  But, as a woman, I’d rather die than have him know how he affected me, so I tilt my head to the side, smile my cheeky smile and say, “Not tonight, handsome. Or ever.  Drink?”

* I read fiction until I was 11 years old.  After that I read non-fiction, true crime, bio's etc.  When my son Jovi drowned in 2011, I found I couldn't bring myself to read non fiction anymore - it was too "real".  Fifty Shades was dominating the media so I got myself a copy and I'm not ashamed to say I read all three of those books at least ten times each.  They allowed me to forget my reality for a little while.  Then I decided that I was going to follow my dreams and write.  I wanted to show my children that just because their brother died, didn't mean they did or our family did.  I want them to reach for the stars and chase their dreams, and the best way to do that is to lead by example!

Excerpt:
 
My knees slammed down onto the cold, hard ground. The first tear of many silently rolled down my face. My reason for being just walked out, leaving me shattered on the floor. Knowing she could walk away so easily ripped me apart. I wept uncontrollably as the realization of my sudden loss consumed me. I didn't give a shit where I was, who was staring, or what was going on around me. In all honesty, those details were the furthest things from my mind. All I could focus on was the pain—the gut wrenching pain. Never in my life had I felt such devastating agony. My entire world, four years, dissipated in less than three minutes. I could not think of a reason as to why she would do it, no signs, no warnings—nothing. I startled as I felt arms wrap around me, helping me to my feet. I prayed for it to be her, but deep down I knew it wasn’t. I was shocked as to whose face I found when I looked up, but willingly went into her embrace.

MY REVIEW:

Revealing Us (Inside Out #3) 3.5 stars

I received this from Netgalley for review.

This picks up where “Being Me” ended. Sara had a decision to make; Chris Merit is leaving for Paris and he wants Sara to go with him. Decision made, she travels to Paris with Chris with hopes of learning what dark secrets haunt him and why he seeks pain as his outlet. Afraid of losing him again to the dark side Sara wants him to share his secrets but Chris is certain she will leave him once she knows the truth. I have to say I was a little disappointed with this book. Chris Merit’s secret just didn’t live up to all the hype of going to the dark side. I’m not sure what I was expecting and I can’t share his secret (spoiler) but I did expect something big. There were times I just scanned the pages out of boredom and that is unusual for a Lisa Renee Jones book!

bored photo tumblr_me4a4pkx1w1qazkdco1_500_zpsf91de472.gif I love the first two in the series; If I were You and Being Me, but this one was like a glass of soda without the fizz, somewhat flat. We meet new characters Amber a long time friend of Chris’s and Tristan her boyfriend, Isabel the female Dominatrix who wields a whip, they add some angst

  whip photo TRUST1-articleLarge_zpsbc3d5e27.jpg
but mainly their just filler who take up a lot of time in the story and all I really wanted was Chris, Sara and some dominating/submissive sex. Chris seemed to be softer in this book, I liked the more forceful and commanding Chris from the previous books. Don’t get me wrong there are some hot
 scenes but something

knees photo knees_zps165f0420.jpg was missing…


rub hip photo aaaa_zps6485f996.gif I just wish more time could have been spent going back into Chris Merit’s past, his love of painting, the memories of his painful choices, the reaction from Sara as they were revealed. Ella (Sara’s friend, from “If I were You”) is a main topic with a mystery surrounding her disappearance. It seems that the trilogy now

 will be whats happening photo tumblr_mjxzjvGRHy1rzdeypo4_250_zps00d64942.gif

expanded to two additional books, the next book about Ella and her time in Paris.

Cover Reveal and 5 Star Review: Secret Maneuvers by Jessie Lane



 
 

Secret Maneuvers – Released – June 14, 2013
Re-released with new cover on September 23, 2013
 
 
Book Blurb:
Some mistakes from the past haunt us forever...
One 'dear John' letter haunts Bobby Baker's every living moment. It’s the letter he stupidly wrote to his high school sweetheart, Belle, right after he left to join the Army. The letter that he told her that he wasn't so sure if they were ready for forever yet. But before he can let her know that the letter, and his second thoughts, are nothing but a mistake, she up and disappears from the small Georgia town they were both raised in.
unless fate steps in with a second chance.
Fifteen years later, Belle unknowingly walks back into Bobby's life when her job as an ATF Agent forces her to work with a group of men secretly headed by the CIA to help her track down whoever is involved in funneling black market weapons to a drug cartel in Mexico.
Bobby will use this mission to try and soothe Belle's hurt feelings while proving to her that their love is still meant for forever. He'll use every dirty trick he's learned since he joined the Army to maneuver her back into his life for the long haul. But Belle's not making it easy as she keeps him at arm's length in the hopes that mistakes of her own never come to light.
 
 
 
 

Excerpt:

Planting my hands on my hips, I growled, “You trying to tell me that you haven’t been playing some kind of game? You disappear for fifteen years without so much as a clue to where you’re headed, then waltz back into my life and try to pretend I don’t exist? You don’t have the kind of love we had, Belle. Hell, you don’t have a man like me—who’s had his mouth on you, his cock in you—and then pretend like he doesn’t exist. Now, I’m telling you, I’m tired of this game and I’m tired of fucking waiting for you to give me a second of your time so that we can talk about this shit.”

Throwing her hands up in the air, she stumbled backwards a few steps and then screeched, “There’s nothing to talk about, Bobby! Besides, I didn't have the man's mouth and cock. I had the boy's. There's a difference. A man, a real man that is, keeps his promises. Like the ones he made to come back. A boy hasn't grown up enough to realize how important promises are to keep.”

“I’ll be honest, Belle, I’m not sure I’m ready for forever for us. I’m not sure that we should run off and get married right now. We’re so young.” I cried with Belle, I was so heartbroken!

and is assigned to work with Bobby, now a member of a Special Ops Team. I really got into this story, I adored Belle, she was a strong female role and didn’t let life beat her up. After the break-up she picked herself up went to college and made a good life for herself. When she and Bobby are thrown back together sparks fly, lightning bolts buzz and it’s like

the dark clouds that hung above them for fifteen years has lifted. Only Belle has a secret, one she fears will have Bobby turn away from her, again. This is a good romance/love story that spans over fifteen years and mixed in is the thrilling undercover work as they work together to discover who is responsible for smuggling the guns. Don’t worry there is plenty of steamy-licious sex, Bobby excels in using his tongue and fingers

not to mention he’s hung like a horse. “His tongue was traveling over my entrance, up and over my clit, licking me like he couldn’t get enough of me” If you like, romance, erotic moans, passion and danger/thrills this one is for you. In the story we meet Declan Sullivan a member of the Ops Team, he sounds like one bad boy who enjoys a woman’s body, I hope the author will do a book about him
he’s HOT too!
