Cover Reveal: Beck by Harper Sloan



 
Beck
Harper Sloan



Synopsis:

 

DEE

I’ve always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real me. I’m content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn’t need a man.

 
But the truth is I’m just as broken as the rest of you. I’m terrified that all it will take is one person to make all my carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. So I guard my heart with everything I have. Determined to never let anyone get close enough to hurt me again.

 
All is perfect until HE walks into my life. No… he doesn’t just walk. He struts his good-looking, sex-oozing self right into my space and demands that I see HIM. Making me want what I know I can’t have.

 
So I did the only thing I know how to do.

 
I run.

 
But he just won’t let me go.

 

 BECK

The second I see her, I know she will be mine. I see past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. I see  HER. She doesn’t want me to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but I make it my mission to find out.

 
To make her mine.

 
She can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop me from coming after her.

 
She's it for me and she knows it.

 
She’s just too scared to admit it.

 
RELEASE DATE IS 12/30/13

**Intended for Mature Audiences**

My 5 Star Review:


Moving Forward ( Timing is Everything)

Simply one of the best books I’ve read this year. It has it all, love, family, pain, deceit, and tragedy.

One night will change Jesika‘s life in a flash. Driving home from a night out a car accident claims

the life of her husband Jake.  If not for an off duty fire fighter she too would have perished.

Jesika’s life will take another turn when a year later, she meets that fire fighter only

she doesn’t remember him, and to her surprise they meet again this time at a bar where

he is the drummer in a rock band. She feels an attraction for Derek but feels guilty as if

she’s betraying her deceased husband.

 Amazing story as Jesika strides to move forward with her life allowing love back into

her life and her heart. When she and Derek get together watch out, it’s hot, sensual

and oh so satisfying. Seriously he’s a fire fighter and a drummer with stunning blue eyes

who wouldn’t fall for him! Her friend Mallory is a sexual kitten, no ties, fun and hot

sex is her mantra until she meets Seth, Derek’s brother the lead singer for their band

but that’s going to be another story! Secrets will be revealed which you won’t see coming

and when they are both Jesika and Derek will need trust and strength to overcome what lies

ahead. I felt Jesika’s pain, felt the euphoria of her love and the agony of Derek’s past.

Just amazing! I look forward to book 2 in the “Timing is Everything series.

“No Going Back”, Seth and Mallory’s story.

No Going Back (Timing is Everything #2)
Synopsis
Life isn’t always about fairytales and happily ever-after’s according to Seth Jordan. After having his world shattered and heartbroken beyond repair, he had always sworn off the idea of love. He was perfectly content with continuing his life with worthless one night stands and no strings attached sex. That was until one blue-eyed blonde managed to seep into places he thought were cemented shut.
Like a jack hammer, Mallory Prentice came into Seth’s life and cracked the hard exterior that surrounded his heart. She’s the one woman he was starting to feel might be worth taking a chance on.
But life doesn't always hand you the easy road. Sometimes you are constantly hit with the bad and have no hope of any good ever showing up.
Will Seth and Mallory realize that ultimately they are the ones who are in control of their life’s outcome? Will they embrace the future and fight for their own happiness, or will they keep lingering in past mistakes and let it keep them apart?
Life is all about forgiveness and second chances. Once you come to that conclusion and just go for it, there is…no going back.

My 5 Star Review:
If you already read Moving Forward then you know Mallory Prentice is carrying Seth Jordan’s child. Only problem is, Seth doesn’t know it. She went to Jesika and Derek’s wedding with the plan on telling him, until she showed up. Allison, Seth’s wicked ex who vanished a few years before with a story she miscarried their baby.
Now Allison is back and plans to claim Seth as hers! It would figure, The Rifters, Seth’s band, are just about to make it big and she comes back into the picture with a ludicrous story that leaves Seth stunned. I wanted to scream. Mallory decides it’s time to come clean about her pregnancy but she may already be too late.
Lies escalate, feelings are hurt and Allison has a plan to destroy all. Nick is back, he was Mallory’s ex boyfriend and still in love with her. If Seth doesn’t want her he is only too willing to scoop up the broken pieces of Mallory’s heart.
I could not believe everything that was going on here; first Allison lies to get Seth back, then Seth lies and breaks Mallory’s heart, a new revelation about Seth’s father is exposed and then just when you think everything might finally come together the author Erika Ashby throws another wrench into

 the mix that left me crying like a baby. crying baby gif photo: Baby crying gif baby2.gif So many ups and downs I felt like I was on a nightmarish escalator ride. I loved Seth until he went back to his old bad boy rock star ways and hooked up with any shank that looked his way, I don’t care if he was hurting, keep your dick in your pants if you really love someone. I wanted to smack him and then I wanted to comfort

 him. smack gif photo: gif thazumanga_yukari_chiyo_smack.gif He didn’t feel like he deserved to be loved he was so screwed up but man could he still F**K and leave them screaming out his name. Talk about earth shattering sex, Seth is king, especially with his APA! piercing  gif photo: So Hardcore hardcoregummi.gif

I loved Mallory, she never felt like she truly belonged and yet she was strong, loyal and funny a hell. She went through a lot in one lifetime and came out a winner. I felt so many different emotions, twists and turns I wasn’t expecting.
Another hit for Erika Ashby!
Now I need to read “In the End” Jake’s story, I need to know what was in the letter Jesika is about to

 open!  photo tumblr_mo8vbsdQsp1srefrfo1_500_zps7e4c3782.jpg

I received an ARC of this book and was happy to read another Erika Ashby work.

In the End (Timing is Everything #3)
Synopsis
*Novella-Prequel to Moving Forward*
Jake Reynolds’ life had always been perfectly mapped out for him as he was growing up. The only time he ever felt like he had any control over it was when he was inside the cage—the same cage that held no for sure outcome. In his twisted mind being inside that ring with his opponent was the most freeing feeling. In that moment alone he was able to let his perfected guard down and be who he wanted to be.
From the outside looking in, everything about Jake’s life looked perfect, but he knew that he wasn’t. His whole life had been set up for him before he was even born, and even though it’s not the life he wanted, he continued living it.
When you have everything you could ever want at your fingertips, why screw it up?
That was his mindset until the night Jesika showed up at his fight. He knew she was different from the get-go. He also knew he didn’t deserve her, but that didn’t mean he didn’t want to try. Jake had skills inside and out of the cage and he was known to always get what he wanted no matter the risk. But was he willing to change who he had always been in order to keep the one that he thought was worth the fight? Will it all be worth it in the end?

**My 5 Star Review:

This for me was the finality I needed for the Timing is Everything series. We briefly met Jake Reynolds in Moving Forward, as he reflected on the mistakes he made in his life, right before he died. His death set forth a string of crying you broke my heart photo emmastonecrying_zps3ec581e5.gif

Excerpts
~Moving Forward Excerpt~
My heart is pounding like it’s going to burst out of my chest. This woman has no freaking clue what she does to me. Gah, or how good she feels. It’s far better than I could have ever dreamt. This goes above and beyond getting laid, and getting mine. This is all about giving. They say giving is better than receiving and in this case, trying to show her without words how much I love her, it is. I can sense through the way her body responds to mine, the look in her eyes, and by the few words that have been spoken, that she’s trying to show me that she feels exactly what I do. This first time experience between us is filled with pure need. We are able to show each other things we feel with something as simple as touch. I want to take her over the edge again, but I know I’m not going to last much longer because everything I’m feeling right now isn’t going to let me drag it out.

~No Going Back Excerpt~
 
“You know, spitters aren’t quitters, Mallory.” Seth says in a serious tone as he pulls his face away from mine. “Okay,” I slowly drawl out, not sure where he’s going with this. “As long as you keep the lid on the juicer, you’re a winner in my book.” “What the hell is that supposed to mean?” I ask. He shrugs as his mouth starts to turn into that sly smile of his that I fine absolutely irresistible. “You know, you don’t jump ship before it’s even docked. You keep the lava contained while it’s erupting.” The he sighs. “As long as you let me nut in your mouth, I don’t care what you do with the contents.” I laugh. “Well, that’s good to know, but for a reason that I’m now sure you’re aware of, I’m still gonna taste your residual nut juice in my mouth whether I spit it or down it.”

~In The End Excerpt~
 
It wasn’t supposed to happen this way. I wasn’t supposed to wake up in the bed next to another woman…her of all people. I’m all too familiar with the likes of her kind and it isn’t just because we use to be fuck buddies…back when I was into snorting shit up my nose. Times when I’d rather be high than deal with reality. Before I ever found my true passion and release—the one that came from being in the ring. “Get the fuck out of my bed!” I yell as I scurry to find my boxers through the slew of clothes thrown everywhere. Fuck. I really fucking did it. The old me showed his fucking ass last night, and I have no damn recollection of it at all. Fucking brilliant.

Blog Tour: Brie Embraces the Heart of Submission by Red Phoenix











On the night of graduation, Brie Bennett offered her collar to the man who’d won her devotion during her time at the Submissive Training Center.
The intimate encounters Brie enjoys with her new Master are hot and deliciously challenging. On the flipside, despite her newly acquired skills, she discovers that being a sub also requires maturity, intelligence and willing sacrifice.
Her Master has a tragic past that he has kept hidden. She is unaware that someone is waiting in the wings, plotting to return and rip his world apart. Brie has troubles of her own, including an obsessive Dom who won’t let her go, parents who refuse to accept her new lifestyle, and a film that is struggling to see the light of day.
Brie’s journey with her Master brings both sweet ecstasy and unbearable pain. Friendships deepen and love grows, even as her life begins to crumble around her. To survive, Brie will need the strength of a love that binds her securely—heart and soul.










Excerpt from Brie Embraces the Heart of Submission (Fire Play):

Brie yelped. “A spanking session, Master?”

“No, I just love playing with your ass, téa.” He winked at her as he smacked her again.

She heard several whispers and turned her head to see that the crowd had grown significantly in that short time. Sir moved away from her and came back with a brush. He began brushing her hair, binding it in a high ponytail so that it lay away from her shoulders. “We cannot have any hair in the way,” he stated.

Sir went back to the duffle bag and pulled out a small fire extinguisher. Brie shuddered involuntarily.

“Do you wish to continue, téa?” Sir asked.

She hesitated for just a second before answering, “Yes, Master.”

“There is nothing to be frightened of.”

“If she doesn’t want to, I volunteer!” an uncouth submissive shouted from the crowd.

Sir ignored the unwelcomed offer, keeping his eyes solely on Brie. “In my opinion, fire is far more elegant than the violet wand. Truly a beautiful display.” He peeled off her panties and asked her to keep her legs closed. “Cross your arms and lay your head down in a comfortable position. You must stay still at all times.”

He lightly brushed her back with his fingers before walking over to the table. He poured the alcohol into a small container and put what looked like a large cotton swab into it. “The process is simple, téa. I will apply the alcohol and then light it. I will snuff out any lingering flames with my hand. You will not be burned. I have done this many times and am experienced in the art.” He traced her backbone with his fingers before dragging the swab over her spine. “It feels cool initially as it evaporates,” Sir lit a slow-burning match, “but that is about to change.”

He leaned over and kissed her cheek, careful to keep the flame away from her. “Are you ready?”

“Yes, Master.”

Sir tapped the flame on her skin and intense heat raced up her back. Sir’s hand swept the area in a fluid motion and the heat was gone. The crowd murmured their appreciation. It must have looked impressive.
“How was it?”

Blog Tour and Review: Hers by Dawn Robertson

 
 
 
 

I am weak.
I am lonely.
I am a slut.
I am strong.
I am Dominant.
I am independent.
I am Seven James.

My entire life, no one has wanted me, and that was fine, because I sure as shit didn't need anyone else. Blah, Blah Blah, insert sad story here about negligent parents, and shitty siblings, and you have my life story in a nut shell. When my college boyfriend dumped me, it was just icing on the cake.

Five years, and a booming career later I am here to collect my revenge. That was until a delicious plaything walked into the kink club I frequent, and rocked my typically un-rockable world. Causing me to break the one rule I have lived by since Daniel Alexander walked out of my life, never have sex with the same person twice. Ever.

Warning!!!!  Hers contains sexually explicit situations that may be uncomfortable for some. These include FF, FMF, and MFM interactions.






Synopsis:
Seven James is a stubborn woman. Strong, independent, sexual, and heartless. She takes what she wants with little care about others or their feelings. After a fucked up childhood, no one blames her. But when Levi Parker walks into her life, all bets are off. If there is one thing Seven James is good at, it is hiding her scars. The scars of her childhood. The scars depicting the years of self loathing. Most of all the scars of a broken heart.
When Daniel Alexander walked out of her life for the warm arm and trust fund of blonde bombshell Samantha Reese Warner, Seven knew her life would never be the same. Levi Parker is a gorgeous playboy businessman, making his way through the Manhattan singles scene. A divorcee with little time for commitment, he has a big secret to hide.
 His need for new found sexual kink in the bedroom.A chance meeting at a club makes him question his single lifestyle for the first time ever, as he aches to chase the petite, tattooed brunette who rocked his world. But, when the woman in question, Seven James, walks into his board room, and tramples his boss all hope is lost. What does the future hold for Seven, Daniel, and Levi?

Warning!!!! Hers contains sexually explicit situations that may be uncomfortable for some. These include FF, FMF, and MFM interactions

My 5 Star Review:


I am weak.
I am lonely.
I am a slut.
I am strong.
I am Dominant.
I am independent.
I am Seven James.

How could I not read this book after that introduction! Seven James leads an almost perfect life, college educated, and successful career, rich in all things except love. Her hippie parents never

wanted her,
  hippie photo 9188ibizahi_zps3bc7236b.jpg

and her brother Blue never let herforget it; he was verbally abusive all her life. If not for her best friend Star, she would have been totally alone. In college her boyfriend Daniel broke up with her,
she wasn’t pedigree

  tattoed woman photo Clovers_tattoo_356_zps09900edf.jpg

material and when he left, he took with him the broken pieces of her heart.
Vowing to never let her walls down again she plans her revenge.
Holy Hotness with a capital H is the only way to describe Seven’s lifestyle, one filled with multiple sexual partners both male and female.
Seven has a rule, never fuck the same man or woman more than twice, with the exception of her BFF Star until Levi Parker walks into her life and the air is charged with delicious vibrations of things to come…and come she does over and over. Levi’s sex life needs some spice and Seven knows exactly how to deliver.

“I have needs. Newfound kink that I need in my sex life. All the women I have been with aren’t

into it. So, here I am.”
  perfection photo glamour_photography_500-101_zpsbbc19844.jpg
Levi is every woman’s dark and secret dream of sexual escapades gone wild!

~Excerpt~


Phillip took one final step closer. “Just give me one more chance, please? I’m begging you, and you know I never beg.” He was starting to freak me out, displaying a new personality I’d never met before. I’d thought my introductions had been made with all of them by now. “And if you go on one of you crazy rampages, then what? I’m supposed to forgive you again? I can’t keep going through this vicious cycle, Phillip.” I suddenly noticed he had slyly made his way into my house. Standing firmly by the door, I wasn’t about to let him in any further.

~Interview with Jaxon Vaughn~



After a bit of persuasion, I finally talked Jaxon into taking a little time off from his busy schedule to do this interview. I wish you ladies could see him as he waltzed in with gray shorts, a black wife beater and black vans. Even though he’s a bit young for me and we’ve developed a close friendship, I still find him panty-melting hot. Shew! Now I know how Courtney feels. Me – “Hi Jaxon, I’m so glad you agreed to meet for an interview. I know things have been a bit crazy for you lately.” Jaxon – He grins a big closed mouth smile, displaying his deep and delicious dimples. Me – “A few friends of mine wanted to ask a few questions so I’ll start with theirs first. Do you believe in love at first sight?” Jaxon – He narrows his eyes at me. “Is that a trick question?” He rubs the scruff on his face, staring at me, waiting for me to answer. Me – I laugh nervously. “I’m not the one being interviewed here, but okay, I’ll move on. Are you a one woman man?” Jaxon – “Next,” he deadpanned without even looking at me. Me – Wow! The temperature in the room dropped about fifteen degrees. “Have you ever considered any other piercings?” Jaxon – “No. Courtney pierced my heart, so anything else now will never matter.” Me – I decided to skip the next question about him and Courtney’s future plans. Instead, I opted for one I knew he would jump all over. “So, I hear you have a restored ’72 Chevy truck, is that right?” Jaxon – His lips spread out over his face as if he was a kid opening up his most wanted gift on Christmas. Chuckling, he replied, “Oh yes! That’s my baby, my black stallion. She belonged to my grampa. After my grampa died, my gramma kept her for me to drive as soon as I turned sixteen. I took care of her over the years and polished her to perfection so she would be ready once I got my license. She’s sort of attached to me now. She gets very jealous over other girls.” Me – “Haha! So I’ve heard. Does anyone ever get to take a ride with her?” Jaxon – “Of course! As long as she doesn’t feel threatened, she’s okay with it. You wanna go?” He asked, his thumb pointing in the direction of the door. Me – I’m utterly baffled. “Hell yeah, I want to go for a ride.” Jaxon – “Well c’mon! This interview blows anyway. I’ll show you what a good time really is,” he laughed, his eyes looking at me all seductive-like. Me – No way was he flirting with me. I’m gushing inside right now. He doesn’t know it yet, but I’m gonna make sure we make a full day out of this. See ya! I got a hot guy that needs an older woman’s attention.

Jill also loves elephants, sarcasm, and anything made with sugar, especially sweet tea. She enjoys all things rude and crude and laughs at stuff she probably shouldn't. She has been accused of being bossy a time or two, but doesn't really see it herself. All in all, Jill is just a small town girl in this great big world trying to enable your book addiction. Oh, and if you read her book, please leave her a review - good or bad, she'll love you forever.
