LOVEFEST - Excerpt from Connected by Kim Karr



Excerpt:
Chapter 2
from CONNECTED (Connections #1)

RIVER's POV
Written by Kim Karr

Time is Running Out

The set ends so I walk over behind Garrett to lean my guitar against the wall. I pull my shirt up to wipe the sweat off my forehead. It’s hotter than shit in here and I need a drink. Garrett laughs, tipping his head back to swallow the beer he somehow already has.

“You going to grab a drink? I’ll take another,” he says as he downs the rest of his beer. “And, dude, wear this. Seriously man, your hair looks like shit,” he says throwing his beanie at me.

I move closer and shove him a little and put the hat on my head. “Shut the fuck up, you should talk.”

I hop off the stage and my sister rushes over to me. “River, I need you to take me home as soon as the last set is over. I have someone meeting me back at my apartment.” I shake my head, knowing it must be a guy. “Yeah yeah, I will Bell, but really can’t you get a boyfriend that has some manners? You know, like actually picks his date up and maybe even takes her out? And at a decent hour?”

She rolls her eyes. “All guys aren’t like you, big brother. Nice beanie,” she teases before disappearing back into the crowd.

As I walk through the jam-packed room, some brunette chick I think looks familiar asks me if I want to grab a drink in private. I kindly refuse, telling her I need to refuel before my next set. She’s still talking when I motion toward the bar to signal that I’m moving away. As my eyes flash across the bar, they’re suddenly drawn to a beautiful girl standing against it. And she’s looking directly at me.
I start walking toward her, leaving behind the brunette who is still talking. As I stare at the beautiful girl, I think, “I want her.” Tall, slim, long blonde hair that’s pulled away from her face. But it’s her eyes that get me—the way she’s looking at me. Shit, I’ve talked to about a dozen chicks tonight, but she is the only one who has me interested.

As I stare back at her I’m feeling like she’s not just any girl. Not just a girl to have sex with. I’m actually having a fucking conversation with myself. I can’t figure out what’s going on in my own head.

I try not to smile, but I know she’s checking me out. Fuck, why’d I put this hat on? I quickly pull it off and comb my fingers through my hair. I can’t take my eyes off her and I feel like I want to knock everyone out of my way to get to her.

When I finally reach the bar, I stand right in front of her. For some weird reason I feel the urge to touch her, but instead I shove my hands in my pockets. She’s smiling at me and I smile right back. This girl is hot. Her eyes still haven’t left mine this whole time, so I decide to break the ice by calling her out. “Were you staring at me?”

She pouts her lips and rolls her eyes. Shit, that look gets me.

“No, I was just looking for my friend while I waited on my drinks. You just happened to be in my line of vision.”

I stifle my laugh and say, “That look was hot.” I want to say, “You’re hot,” but I don’t—not yet anyway.

I can tell she’s trying not to laugh. If she does, I know I have her. Her phone rings and her smile fades. “Why would you think I was looking at you, anyway?”

The person beside her walks away and I secure my place next to her. I toss my hat on the counter and lean against the bar, my eyes never leaving hers. I answer in the most honest way I can. “Because I was staring at you, hoping you were staring back.”

I don’t want to fuck this up so I decide to be the guy Bell always tells me I am—the guy with manners. Then I say what I should have said first. “With all this talk about who was staring at whom I think we forgot the basics, I’m River,” I say as I extend my hand.

She reaches hers out. Hey, I get to touch her. But she quickly pulls her hand back before I get to grasp it and accidentally knocks a dude’s beer over. The asshole gives her a dirty look and swears. I know I have to step in because this guy is out of line. I gently guide her out of my way and try to control myself as I say, “Sorry man, just an accident, but let me buy you another.” I hand him a ten, “Buy two.” I hope he takes the money and leaves. Lucky for him he does, because otherwise I might deck him.

I turn around to find the girl smiling at me and sliding one of her beers my way. I start to drink it and she says, “Thank you, that guy sure as shit wasn’t happy with me. In fact he kind of acted like an asshole.”

I can’t help but laugh mid-sip, almost spitting the beer out of my mouth. Not cool. Not able to resist any longer, I run my finger over her smooth bare shoulder and lock my eyes on hers. “You’re more than welcome.” She just barely shudders and steps back. I’m pretty sure she’s interested in me so I
step closer, not wanting to break our connection. “Now, where were we? Do we need to start over?” I ask, looking into her eyes.

“We were introducing ourselves,” she says smiling.

“Okay, so let’s try again. I’m River and you are...?”

"I’m not sure you need to know that information right now. I’m kind of thinking you might be a stalker,” she teases.

I laugh. I’m all about game playing but I’m not ready to play. I really want to get to know this girl, and I’m pretty sure the feeling is mutual, so I avoid dropping the canned line I might have used on another girl and say, “You’re not serious, are you beautiful girl?”

Sigh...oh, River! That gets me every time!

Sale Alert!

Liv Morris's book, Adam's Apple is on sale for .99 pennies until Monday. Hmmm...haven't read this one yet but sure looks interesting!


Blurb from Goodreads:

***AN AMAZON TOP 100 BESTSELLER***

Uniquely told in Adam's point of view. Warning: Contains adult situations intended for readers eighteen and over.

"I take cocky, rich boys like you and teach them how to make love to women until they're barely able to mutter a word. Completely and utterly blissed. That's really what separates the men from the boys, Mr. Kingsley. Sex as an art form versus f**king for a release." - Kathryn.
Adam Kingsley reigns as the young prince of Manhattan. Everything he touches turns to gold, making him the envy of Wall Street. Women swoon at his feet, money is no object, and his killer good looks are as wicked as sin. A dangerous trifecta that allows him to possess anything or anyone he desires.

What more could a thirty-two-year-old man wish for? Maybe that his life never changes and his murky past stays far away... Sounds reasonable, yet life seldom is.

Kathryn Delcour is an alluring socialite with unique erotic tastes who helps others find true sexual fulfillment. When she suddenly appears on the New York City social scene, Adam finds this complex woman too tempting to resist. He will stop at nothing to have her, yet she is warned to stay away from him and his player ways. Kathryn tries to keep him at arm's length, but her arms may not be strong enough to hold the charismatic Adam Kingsley at bay.

The passionate lure of ancient sexual practices, a past that isn't content to remain buried and a present filled with intrigue, danger and revenge. An erotic story sweetened with secrets, seduction, and suspense.

Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway - Behind His Eyes - Consequences by Aleatha Romig



My Two Cents:

OOOO - Yes! Yes! Yes!

Behind His Eyes - Consequences is for fans of the bestselling Consequences series by Aleatha Romig. It is a companion novel and not meant to be read as a standalone book. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to read this extraordinary series from the beginning, I highly recommend you do so. It’s a dark, twisted journey that will boggle your mind yet leave you craving more. Need more convincing? Read my review of Consequences here. Then read my review of Truth here. Still need even more convincing? Head on over to Goodreads and peruse the reviews for the entire series. If you enjoy dark, thrilling romances with surprising twists and turns, you will no doubt want to devour these books. Then and only then can you read the latest in the series, Behind His Eyes – Consequences, which provides us a glimpse into the perverse mind of a man obsessed with seeking revenge on behalf of his deceased grandfather for past wrong doings.
“Without fulfilling Nathaniel’s wish, Anthony Rawlings would
be incomplete.”

Although I couldn’t wait for the release of this book, I was truly frightened to take the leap into reading it. Being privy to Tony’s thought process was just as painful as I expected it to be even while knowing the series outcome. It stirred up all those old HATEFUL feelings prior to my being Team Tony and brought them barreling to the surface once again. I found it horrifying to face the cold hard facts. Tony was a cruel, calculating, controlling man who basically got off on his domination of Claire. Perhaps I was better off in denial.
“Even the slightest thought of his complete control over her life had an effect on his body.”
He controlled every single aspect of Claire’s life while treating her as a possession, an acquisition.
“It was about power. Everything about her existence was his to determine.”

Appearances were oh so important to Tony. Failure was NOT an option, especially public failure. Disappointing Tony resulted in punishment (sometimes rather severe) for poor sweet innocent Claire. 

“When she disappointed him, she earned negative reinforcement.”
Once again, my heart shattered for her a million times over when she received unjust punishment. She certainly never deserved this treatment.
“Closing his eyes, he defined the woman next to him. She was his acquisition, his prisoner – a sacrificial lamb for the sins of her forefathers. She was his; he needn’t concern himself with worries over her emotional well-being.”
WHAT ABOUT MY EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING??? Grrrrrr…insert SCREAM here! He’s so DAMN frustrating. And downright MEAN! The emotional roller coaster ride seemed never ending! It was terrifying. Just when I began to think, well, maybe he really does have a heart, maybe he does really love her. Nope! More torment of Claire was on the horizon! Knowing the series conclusion was what helped me push ahead while being TORTURED by the darkness behind Tony’s eyes.

Once again, Aleatha’s writing is superb. She’s a master at taunting her readers and evoking intense emotional overload. This isn’t simply a re-telling of Consequences from Tony’s point of view. It is so much more than that. Significant chapters and events from Consequences are included and we are made aware of behind the scenes conversations that take place as well as Tony’s dark inner monologues. Although seriously disturbing, reading from his perspective was certainly insightful and revealing. Tony experienced certain emotions that he never before encountered and were entirely new to him. Of course, this was no excuse at all for most of his actions. And because of his distrust and constant need to test Claire, he brought on more pain not only to Claire but also to himself. I’m looking forward to gaining more perspective from Tony’s point of view as he slowly becomes self-aware and changes begin to take place. Bring it on, Aleatha! If I can read this, I can read anything!

Excerpt:

The Beginning of the End...Coffee? - January 2012
(Consequences—Chapter 46)

When Tony crawled back into his bed, he slid behind Claire’s sleeping body and wrapped her in his arms. She fit perfectly as he was drawn to her radiating warmth. Gently kissing her hair, he tasted her perfume as his hands wandered her curves, caressing her soft skin. Her soft murmurs filled his heart with hope as she settled into his embrace. Smiling, Tony imagined that in a few days he’d have his wife on a sunny beach with nothing more than a bikini—maybe not even that. Those images and more filled his mind as he drifted off to sleep.

When he woke, Tony lingered longer than usual in the warmth of their bed. Being much too early for Claire to wake, he lifted his head, rested it on his elbow, and watched her sleep. Her lightened hair covered her pillow as renegade strands crisscrossed her exposed cheek. Along with her exposed face, one bare shoulder was visible above the mound of luxurious blankets. Tony leaned closer, kissed her forehead, and watched in amusement as her nose wrinkled. Lightly, he kissed her again. This time he was rewarded with the most beautiful moan as she stretched and turned toward him. Although Claire was still sound asleep, she subconsciously responded to his touch. He wanted to wake her, but he feared that if her warm soft skin touched his and they connected their bodies, as they’d been connected the night before, he wouldn’t be able to carry out his plan.

Brushing the strands of blonde from her face, he whispered, “You don’t need to wake, yet.” When she didn’t respond and he was confident of her sleeping, he added, “You have a big day, my dear. You need your rest. Tonight we’ll celebrate.”

Throughout Tony’s morning routine, he avoided thoughts of Claire’s impending examination. To him it was merely a formality—the final signature on their life long contract. The deal was already complete; she belonged to him—she wouldn’t disappoint.

She knew better; because, if she did, he’d promised consequences. And Anthony Rawlings was a man of his word.



Ask Aleatha:

1. What is something that we don’t know about your books?
I have made an effort to include all of my children’s and my niece and nephew’s names in my books. In most cases they aren’t the main characters. (I have no relatives named Claire or Anthony) However, beginning in Truth I slipped their names in as tertiary characters. In some cases I used a first name as a last name. BEHIND HIS EYES CONSEQUENCES contains a glossary of characters. That glossary will grow with each reading companion. 
2. Tell us something that you think is fun about your books.
Well, besides using my family members’ names, I sometimes use whatever I see or hear. For example, I was watching The Big Bang Theory with my daughter as I was writing the original accident scene in CONSEQUENCES. That is why the attending doctor’s name is Dr. Leonard.  We were driving to Florida while I was writing some scenes in CONVICTED. I looked up and saw a billboard for Fairfield Resorts. That is how another character was named Dr. Fairfield. Honestly, that list could go on and on. So, I guess you could say it was a matter of convenience.

My Two Cents:


OOOOO+ OMG!!!!!! Intensely Passionate O's!

Once upon a time there was a knight in shining armor disguised as a university professor and a broken damsel in distress disguised as an undergraduate student. And they fell in love. A deep, intensely passionate, soul-searing, indestructible bond of love. Nothing could break them. They would withstand all of the ugly the world threw at them. Together. This is the story of Dean and Liv.

Professor Dean West is an intense, protective, controlling, dominant force to be reckoned with, but oh so chivalrous, romantic, and sensual. A true knight in shining armor not to mention a Holy Sex God with a bit of kink on the side!



Olivia West is his intelligent, beautiful (not to mention very lucky) wife who has learned to stand on her own two feet and pave her way after picking up the pieces of her broken childhood.


Awaken picks up right where Allure left off. Dean is in Italy working and Liv is at home in Mirror Lake about to embark on her own journey pursuing her dreams. The couple has thus far survived heartbreak and tragedy but unfortunately, there continues to be a threat looming over their heads.


Nina Lane offers us an intimate look into the marriage of Liv and Dean. She leads us on a journey through the trials and tribulations life throws their way and how they manage to endure together rather than letting those hardships tear them apart. Nina skillfully manages to capture the raw passion and tender emotions between these two characters so fiercely that they ooze off the page and settle directly within your heart.


The words are lyrical and the imagery is sublime. There isn’t one single detail I don’t love about this book. The writing is absolutely exquisite! It isn’t a frustrating, angsty read but a breathtakingly beautiful tale of perfectly imperfect love.

“My husband doesn’t just love me. He knows how to love me. He knows what I need and when I need it, sometimes even better than I do. He knows how to unfold all the tight, rough parts of me and smooth them out with one glide of his hand. He knows how to prove that he – and only he – understands every crevice of my soul. He knows how to remind me that I am forever safe within his heart.”

What woman doesn’t want to be loved like this? An all-encompassing, powerful, intimate connection that transcends the test of time. This story may be a work of fiction, but there are some fabulous lessons here to be learned from Liv and Dean. We all know relationships aren’t easy. Make no mistake about it; Dean and Liv put a great deal of effort into their marriage every single day. They communicate honestly and openly, both talking and listening intently. They open each other up while holding each other up. They show respect to one another. And they heal themselves while healing each other.
“How is it you’re always so warm?” (Dean)
“Because of you...You drive away the cold and melt the ice. You’ve always made me bloom.” (Liv)
Dean and Liv rank in the top two of my all-time favorite book couples. I adore them. I admire them. I love them wholeheartedly. Nina Lane has beautifully and brilliantly concluded this poignant trilogy of perfectly imperfect love. It is a truly unforgettable work of art that will always stay close to my heart. If you too enjoy touching, sensual love stories, I highly recommend this entire three-book series.

Book Blitz and Excerpt - Consumed by Emily Snow

bookblitz_Consumed


ConsumedBookCover6x9-2 (3)

Synopsis

Now that Lucas is back in her life, Sienna is sure the drama between them is over. But then he comes to her with a new offer: his band, Your Toxic Sequel, is going on tour and he wants her with him—working in wardrobe and as his girl.

Life on the road is a complete 180 from everything Sienna has ever known. Not only does she have to deal with Lucas’s band members, but she’s also forced to be around Cilla, the lead singer of Wicked Lambs. Still, despite horny band mates and a gorgeous rock goddess determined to sink her talons into Lucas, Sienna stays by his side.

Then the letters start to come—harassing messages from Lucas’s ex-wife, Sam.

At first, Sienna brushes them off, keeping Lucas in the dark because Sam is bad for his music. But after Sam’s contact turns personal and violent, Sienna has no other choice but to confront Lucas. If she’s ever going to understand the twisted pull Sam has on him, she has to know his secret. But when he finally reveals it, will they be able to survive the consequences? Or will it tear them apart, consuming them?

Excerpt

“Nice move, Mr. Wolfe,” I mutter under my breath. Tapping my foot rapidly against the floor, I wait for my suitcase to come around on the carousel. Once I locate it, I lug everything to a row of chairs nearby. It’s too hot for me to wait outside for some driver to arrive.

No sooner than my butt makes contact with the hard seat do I hear snippets of a conversation between two women who are walking in the direction of the taxi exit.

“ . . . I have all of their CDs. I could spot him from a mile away. It was definitely him, and you—you are stifling me!”

What the hell?

I twist around in time to witness the shorter woman with the black, asymmetrical bob narrow her chocolate brown eyes at the tall, leggy blonde. “And just last night you just said they’re on tour. So which is it, Kate? He’s on tour, or he’s bullshitting around this place?”

“Or maybe,” Kate hisses, “Lucas is catching a flight because of his tour.”

Lucas is already here?

I clamber to my feet, allowing the argument between Kate and her friend to fade into the background as I scan as far as my eyes can see for Lucas. There are couples reuniting all around me, and what appears to be an entire busload of people holding up signs that say “Welcome Home, Gloria,” but no sign of him. I’m about to grab my stuff and go look, but then I see him. Heading directly toward me. His stride a little faster than it normally is, his soft grin entirely too confident, his hazel eyes cocky and yet so full of need.

God, that man and those eyes.

He’s wearing destroyed jeans and an olive green tee shirt that show off the green flecks in his eyes. His muscular arms hang relaxed by his side, but when he comes close enough for me to breathe in the clean, airy scent of his cologne, I notice that he’s worrying something between the thumb and forefinger of his right hand. I squint down at it as the toes of his Converse brush up against my ballet flats.

“Well fuck, Sienna. Looks like you’re more interested in my hands than my face.” But he opens his palm, holding it six inches from my face. My throat constricts when I realize what he’s holding.

It’s a guitar pick.

Holy hell.

“You’re grinding your teeth.” The volume of his voice is barely above a whisper and yet so powerful. “The things I want to do to you for that.”
