My Review:


Indiscretion: Volume Two (Indiscretion, #2)My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Indiscretion: Volume Two by Elisabeth Grace is the second volume in her serial Indiscretion.

**The rest of this review is crammed full of spoilers for book one in this series - read further at your own extreme caution**

So we made it. We survived the bear attack. Close call right?

Well, they've agreed to something for the season - short term fling. They're getting close and Chloe doesn't want the complications or the heartbreak that she knows will come with getting too tied up in Max.

The charity event is looming closer and Max's dad, owner of the company that is in direct competition with Chloe's boss' company, is gong to be in town and when Chloe's boss gets wind of this he is livid. Apparently there's a history there. A bad one. If Chloe has any hopes of making her comission and buying into the company then she needs to heed her boss' warnings and end it with Max.

The cliffhanger here is when Chloe is directed to a newspaper article by nefarious means, but what she reads there sends her over the edge and on a mission of attack - Max being the target. What was the article about? I don't know but I'm sure we will find out in the next book, Indiscretion: Volume Three.

10397197_721882777868095_7636697336831824815_oKerry has hated Rhys from the moment she set eyes on him. They’ve never had an encounter that didn’t end with them both enraged. Paired up at his brother’s wedding, their clashing personalities come to a head and a daring wager is made. Rhys agrees to submit to Kerry for a single evening if she will do the same. Considering the sexual flavors Rhys has enjoyed in his past, it’s one bet Rhys is sure he can’t lose. But Kerry has a few secrets of her own and her plans for him land Rhys in a place he never expected, the arms of sexy Italian solicitor, Asher D’Ettore.

Asher becomes an obsession Rhys can’t shake. His alpha ways and confident mannerisms render all of Rhys’ usual charm useless. With his hard-earned reputation in the media spotlight, Rhys is forced to make a choice between his public persona and true love.

Inside Scoop: This sexy tale includes graphic sexual male on male encounters and fetish club references which could have you searching for one in your area.





Excerpt:


“Are you hard for me?”

Tilting his chin, Rhys cut his eyes at Asher as he made his admission. “I’m probably going to have a permanent limp.”


Asher’s lips twisted into a sinister grin. “Good. I’m going to fuck you. You’re never going to forget it.”


When was this goddamn fight going to end? As soon as the question ran through Rhys’ mind, Knox snagged the back of the dude’s neck. With a jerk, he pulled his head down while lifting his knee into the guy’s face. The double impact of downward momentum against upward thrust did the trick. With a twist, Knox tossed him to the mat. He didn’t move.


“Knockout!” The judge’s announcement rang out loudly sending the throng into cheerful hysteria.


“Peccato. It seems I’ve lost. I guess you’ll have to choose to go with me willingly.” Asher paused for half a breath before tacking on, “I have cookies.”


A surprised bark of laughter escaped Rhys. “Damn. You don’t have to lure me to the dark side. I’m a hair’s breath away from exploding inside my jeans just from you breathing on the side of my neck.”


“I think I’ll have to pass on meeting your brother tonight. As you know, I’m not opposed to a public display. If you’re not in the truck in the next five minutes these people are going to get a much different show than they paid to see.”


He made it there in two. There were bruised toes and ribs along the way as he barreled his way to the door. Rhys was beyond caring. His dick was desperately beating against the zipper of his jeans begging to be closer to Asher. Yellow lights flashed as he hit the button on his keyless remote. Asher climbed into the passenger side while Rhys jumped in behind the wheel. He didn’t stop there. Rhys kept going until he was pinning Asher against the seat. Something sharp bit into his knee. He hit his elbow on Asher’s door. Nothing mattered except the taste of Asher’s lips…the sounds of his moans.


The parking lot, while filled with cars, was empty of people since there were matches scheduled for several more hours. Rhys wouldn’t have cared even if they weren’t alone. His patience was at an end. The back of his head stung where Asher gripped his hair at the roots holding him in place. The rich smell of Asher’s cologne teased Rhys’ nostrils as he dragged air into his lungs. He was starving. His hunger for Asher was more powerful than anything he’d ever experienced. It was unequaled.


Without waiting for permission, Rhys tore at the button on Asher’s jeans. Damn his mouth made him hot as hell. Rhys wanted more. Traveling south, he nipped at the column of Asher’s throat while setting his erection free. His hips left the seat as Rhys encircled it.


“Fu-”


Rhys smiled as the strangled cry died in Asher’s throat.


“Tell me what you want,” he demanded while snagging Asher’s shirt in his teeth and dragging it upward. His sculpted torso came into view. Rhys dipped his head, swiping his tongue over the ridges. Ragged breathing met his question. Rhys froze refusing to budge until he heard the words. “Say the words, Ash.”

Blog Tour: The McKades of Texas #2: Norah by Kimberly Lewis



Norah (The McKades of Texas #2)

About The Book:

Title: Norah
Series: The McKades of Texas #2
Author: Kimberly Lewis
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 19, 2014
Purchase: Amazon | B&N


He may not be a cowboy… But that won’t stop him from wrangling her heart.

Chase O’Donnell is the proud new owner of the Caldwell Ranch—or maybe he’s not so proud. Annoyed would be more like it. After receiving the news of his inheritance, Chase’s first thought is to sell the ranch and be done with it—until one night with a beautiful blonde at a local honky-tonk has him changing his tune…

Norah McKade is surprised by her instant attraction to the handsome new stranger, and even more surprised when she finds out he’s her new neighbor. But with Chase only being in town for a short amount of time, Norah determines getting tangled up with him a bad idea and promptly places Chase in the friend zone.

Although a bit reluctant, Chase agrees to Norah’s terms—but he’s not about to deny or ignore the fact that there’s more between them than just sexual attraction. He’ll have to pull out all the stops to get her to change her mind and prove to her that it wouldn’t be such a bad thing for her to fall in love with him.


Excerpt:


Apparently she was doing this whole flirting thing wrong.

Had to be.


It was the only reasonable explanation for why Chase hadn’t picked up on the fact that she was interested in him.


Maybe she was trying too hard?


For the past four days she had made little comments with hidden innuendos and had done her best to make it obvious she was checking him out. And then there was the somewhat revealing clothing she chose to wear around him; another effort to help catch his eye and let him know what she was thinking.


But none of that was working with Chase.


Of course, there was always just telling him that she’d changed her mind and wanted something more between them. But for some reason she just couldn’t muster up the guts to tell him that. Maybe she was just too much of a chicken to admit that she’d been wrong this whole time.


“Lookin’ good,” she heard Chase say, his voice drifting up to her from where he stood on the ground.


Okay, so maybe she wasn’t doing something wrong after all. She stopped her brushstrokes against the house and held onto the ladder as she looked down to him.


“Liking what you see, O’Donnell?” she asked him, adding a generous amount of flirtatiousness to her voice.


“Yes, ma’am,” Chase answered her with a grin from beneath the brim of his baseball cap. “You weren’t kidding when you said you were good at painting.”


Oh.


She tried to hide her disappointment as she looked back to the house and continued with her task.


“I’m all done down here,” Chase said. “Let me know when you’re done and ready to come down. I’ll hold the ladder for you.”


“Okay,” Norah answered him, not bothering to look his way.


Brushing the last few strokes of the sunny yellow paint against the house, Norah tossed her paintbrush into the container of paint and began making her way down the ladder.


At least, that’s what she’d meant to do.


With her mind still focused on Chase and his inability to pick up on her come-ons, Norah tossed the brush against the rim of the paint container instead of inside of it. It flopped off of the top and spiraled down to the ground. Norah instinctively reached out to grab it, causing the ladder to unbalance.


“Oh no!” she shouted.


The brush would’ve landed in the grass if Chase hadn’t scurried over to the ladder to steady it, but instead it slapped right on top of his navy ball cap and slid down the brim before falling to the ground. 


Norah sucked in a shocked breath of air. “Oh my God.”


She hurried and made her way down the ladder, careful to hold onto the paint container in her hand so she didn’t have any more accidents. With a few last steps remaining, Norah jumped from the ladder and set the container on the ground before looking to Chase.


His expression was blank, almost dumbstruck.


“Chase?” Norah asked cautiously.


“What. The. Hell?” Chase asked, speaking the words slowly and quietly.


“I am so sorry,” Norah said. “I didn’t mean—”


“I told you to let me know when you were ready to come down,” Chase said. “What were you thinking?”


“I—”


He cut her off. “You could’ve fallen and seriously hurt yourself.”


“But I didn’t,” she told him, trying to smooth out the situation.


“Thankfully,” Chase said, let out a relieved sigh as he took his hat off and ran a hand through his hair. “You’re gonna kill me, woman.” He then looked at his hat and his eyes widened at the bright yellow paint streaked across it. “Ah, damn it. This is my favorite hat.”


Norah bit her lip to keep from laughing but couldn’t contain it. She let out a short burst of laughter and quickly covered her mouth with her hand. “I’m sorry, I’m—”


Chase narrowed his eyes as he looked at her. “You think this is funny?”


“No,” Norah quickly said but then changed it to, “Well, yes, it is kind of funny when you think about it.” She laughed again.


“Oh, okay,” Chase said with a nod as he placed his hat back on his head and quickly reached to the ground for the paintbrush.


He popped back up before she had a chance to dodge out of the way and slapped the brush against the front of her shirt; her favorite dark gray Rolling Stones t-shirt. Her mouth fell open as he drug the yellow paint between her breasts down to the knot she had tied at the hem of her shirt.


“You jerk,” she gasped.


He gave her a smart-ass smirk as he dropped the paintbrush. “How’s that for funny?”


“You ruined my shirt,” she told him, her voice still full of disbelief as she tugged on the fabric to look at the damage done.


“And you ruined my hat,” Chase said. “So now we’re even. What do you know about the Rolling Stones anyway?” He gave her a half smile and knelt on the grass as he collected the paintbrushes.


She dropped the soft fabric and planted a hand on her hip. “Is that supposed to be a dig at me? ‘Oh that country girl don’t know nothin’ about good music’,” she said, deepening her voice for that last part.


Chase chuckled and looked at her. “Was that supposed to be me?”


She smiled bashfully. “Maybe.”


Chase grabbed all of the brushes and dropped them in an empty bucket before walking back over to her. “Look, I’m sorry if I offended you,” he said and shrugged his shoulders. “I’m just surprised. I thought you only liked country music.”


“Well I don’t,” Norah told him. “That’s like me assuming you only like rock or rap or something.”


“Well, which is it?” Chase asked her, the corner of his mouth turning up slightly. “Give it a guess. Let’s see just how well you think you know me?”


She gave him a playful smirk. “Okay.” Crossing her arms over her chest, Norah brought one of her hands up to her face and tapped her finger against her chin as she thought about her answer. “I’m thinking you’re more into upbeat tunes rather than the slow stuff. Right so far?”


“That’s a good start,” Chase said.


“And even though you like today’s music you really prefer the older stuff.”


“Right again.”


Norah pursed her lips as she continued to tap her chin with her finger. “I’m thinking you’re a seventies kind of man.”


Chase applauded her. “Nicely done, Miss McKade.”


“Why thank you, Mr. O’Donnell,” Norah said and uncrossed her arms. “But I’ll do you one better. I bet you I can go as far to guess who your favorite artist from that time is.”


“Okay,” Chase told her, clearly amused. “Let’s hear it.”


“Hmm?” Norah said as she pursed her lips again and moved her eyes to look at the sky. “Let’s see there’s Foghat, Aerosmith, The Who—” She stopped short and snapped her fingers as she looked directly at him. “I got it! ABBA.”


“ABBA?” Chase said with a raised eyebrow and gave her a befuddled expression.


“Mmm-hmm,” Norah replied with a teasing smile. “You know you rock ‘Dancing Queen’ when nobody’s looking. Don’t deny it.”


Chase shook his head with a small laugh. “I think you are sorely mistaken. But good try though.” He walked away from her and back to the mess of supplies scattered about the ground.


“Aw, did I hurt your feelings?” Norah asked, sporting a pouty face as she followed him.


“A little,” Chase joked, sniffing as he wiped away a fake tear with the back of his hand.


“Aw. Cheer up, Chase,” Norah said in a fun and almost girlish voice as she gently grabbed at his side. “Come on. Come on.” She continued her efforts to tickle a smile out of him but it just wasn’t working out for her.


“What are you doing, woman?” Chase asked, lifting his arm to watch her.


“Trying to make you laugh,” she answered.


“I’m not ticklish,” Chase told her and blocked her hand from grabbing at his side.


“I bet you are,” Norah said. “You’re just really good at hiding it.”


She laughed softly as she grabbed for his side again, but was a bit caught off guard when Chase took hold of her wrist. Simultaneously, and before she even had time to move out of the way, Chase reached out with his other hand and grabbed at her side just as she had previously done to him. Norah shrieked and scrunched her body before quickly jumping away from Chase.


“Oh, are you serious?” Chase asked with a wide grin. “Look who is ticklish.”


“Chase, don’t you dare,” Norah warned, giving him a stern look and pointing her finger at him.


He stalked towards her.


“I’m warning you,” Norah said, walking backwards to keep an eye on Chase. The back of her leg hit one of the paint buckets and she instinctively looked down for the briefest moment before returning her eyes to Chase. He was standing no more than a few feet away from her, staring at her with a hungry look in his eyes.


She took a slight step to the side.


He followed.


She took another step in the opposite direction.


He followed once more.


Her fun little game of let’s-get-a-laugh-out-Of-Chase had quickly turned into a game of cat and mouse with Norah being the prey and Chase being the hunter.


Keeping her eyes on Chase, Norah slowly began to take another step but quickly faked it and bolted in the opposite direction. Her efforts to escape him were fruitless. Chase quickly caught up to her and swung both of his arms around her waist, picking her feet off of the ground as he pulled her to him.


“Chase!” Norah squealed as he tickled her. She laughed uncontrollably as she attempted to free herself from his hold.


He was laughing too. The deep sound of his voice was right against her ear, sending what felt like a current of electricity down her neck and spine.


Norah had no objection to being pressed against Chase the way she was. All she needed, though, was for him to stop tickling her long enough for her to take advantage of it. She swatted at his hands and attempted to wiggle free but only caused herself to lose balance. She fell to the ground and took Chase with her.


“Oh my God!” Norah shouted between laughs. “Stop! I can’t breathe!”


Chase laughed breathlessly and removed his hands from her waist, resting them against the ground on either side of her body.


She focused on taking slow, deep breaths as she stared into Chase’s green eyes. How she had been able to say no to that face time after time was a wonder to her. But even though the man was extremely attractive, that wasn’t the only reason she wanted to be with him. She honestly and truly liked him for who he was and she was going to tell him exactly how she felt right now. Either that, or kiss the hell out of him.

Series: Twelve Beats In A Bar #1
Author: K.K. Hendin
Genre: Contemporary, New Adult
Release Date: August 18, 2014
Purchase: Amazon


Everyone thought we’d be the ones who made it through high school. The ones who’d get married and stay married forever. The example of how young love can work.

We thought so, too.

Too bad life had other plans.

It’s been three years since Hayley and Nate broke each other’s hearts. Three years, and a lot has changed. Hayley’s a freshman in Bushwick University, and the only things keeping her sane are stress baking, and her a cappella group, Twelve Beats in a Bar.

Nate’s a Marine, stationed in Afghanistan. The only thing that’s keeping him sane is the last picture he has of him and Hayley, and the hope that maybe when the hell of deployment is over, he can find her again and apologize.

One explosion will change everything.

When a bomb kills all of Nate’s unit, leaving him missing a leg and eyesight in one eye, he’s sent back home to Texas. Texas, where he loved Hayley more than he could possibly imagine ever loving anyone else.

With seemingly endless amounts of free time and needing something to distract himself, Nate starts making YouTube videos, imploring Hayley to come back to him, and come back to Texas.

Hayley’s life is wrapped around the Beats, making sure she doesn’t flunk out of biology class, and babysitting Ohio’s smallest monster, Brandon. She doesn’t want to admit it, but she misses Nate more than anything.

It’s too bad she doesn’t know just how much he misses her, too…


Excerpt:


(A flashback to the first time Hayley and Nate met)
He turned around, and his eyes connected to mine. “Hey!” he called. “You!”

My eyes widened. “Me?” I pointed to myself.


“Yeah.” He was far enough away that he was calling. “What’s your name?”


Why was he talking to me? Was this some kind of joke? I glanced nervously at Josh, trying to see if this was for real. I couldn’t tell.


“Hayley,” I said quietly- loud enough for him to hear if he was listening close enough, but quiet enough that I could deny I was talking to him if I needed to.


“Hayley!” he called back, grinning. “What’s your stance on ice cream? Positive or negative?”


“Why?”


“For science.”


“What kind of science?”


“Does it matter?”


“Well, if it’s for curing cancer or something, I’ll tell you the truth. If it’s for something else, I might not.”


“You would lie to science?”


“You can’t lie to science,” I said. “Science isn’t a person.”


“Yeah, it is,” Josh said. “Science is the skeleton in the lab.”


“I thought his name was Fred.”


“His full name is Fred Skeleton Montgomery FisherHell the Twelfth,” Harrison said. “But I wasn’t actually talking about him. C’mon, Hayley. How do you feel about ice cream?”


“If I tell you, will you let me do my homework?”


“Deal.”


“I feel positive about ice cream.”


“Yes!” crowed Harrison. “One more question.”


“No.” I tried to bury my grin as I bent my head down to concentrate on my English assignment.


“Pleeeeeease, Hayley.”


“You said you’d let me do my homework after the ice cream question.”


“But science!”


“No.”


“You’re a tough one,” he said, standing up. Wait. What was going on? Where was he going?


The next thing I knew, he was standing above me, blocking the sunlight completely. “You’re blocking my sun,” I said, not looking up from my homework.


“What is science going to do without your answer?” he said, leaning down toward me. “It’s going to cry itself to sleep tonight because you don’t care enough to answer the question.”


“You’re crazy, you know,” I said, trying not to giggle. “Maybe you should talk to science about your feelings.”


“If I’m that crazy, talking to science would only make things worse.”


Huh. That actually made sense.


I rolled my eyes. “Okay, science’s best friend. What’s the second question?”


“How do you feel about Rocky Road ice cream?”


“I like it.”


“A lot or a little?”


“What does it matter?”


“Well, those morons over there claim loving Rocky Road is unnatural.”


“You should find new friends,” I said.

Years later, Scarlet has abandoned the high life for that of a hard-working lawyer, while Ethan has clawed his way to the pinnacle of a business empire. Drawn into his world of high-stakes tech mergers, they dance to a tune of revenge, desire, and finally, redemption. But their world won’t tolerate an attorney falling for her client. They’ll need more than lust and forgiveness. They must bridge the chasm of a tormented past to understand who they are today. Only then can they forge a future in the face of the resurging enemy who once tore them apart.

amazon-coverWhen you meet that one person in the world meant for you... you should hold onto them.

Olivia Bannon walked away.

Twice.

When 17-year-old Livy meets Ethan, she can’t deny their inexplicable connection. Lost in his dark, intense eyes and smile-to-die-for, Livy never thought she would feel like this. It almost makes her want to break her childhood vow, but Livy knows happily ever after is just an illusion, and despite her heart wanting Ethan, her head is telling her to stick with the plan. The one that doesn’t include falling in love. Period.

Eight years later, Livy finds herself back in her hometown. After the way she left things, the last time they were together, Livy is anxious about seeing Ethan again. It shouldn’t come as shock to discover he has finally moved on—but it hurts. A lot. Accepting that she will never get the chance to put things right isn’t easy, but it’s not until life comes crashing down around her that Livy realizes what she could’ve had. Left broken, alone, and depressed, only one person can pull her out—the guy she thought she'd pushed away one too many times.

Livy has finally realized that you can’t fight fate… Some things are just meant to be. Is this finally her time to get it right, or has Livy missed her last chance with Ethan?


Excerpt:


“Liv, what’s going on? Is she okay? Keefer told me what went down.”

I moved away from the door and met Ethan halfway. “No, she isn’t okay.” It came out bitter.


“Can I do anything? I could come-”


I shook my head. “We’re fine, thanks.” Without realizing I stepped back and Ethan’s face paled.


“And us?”


My eyes dropped to the floor.


“Liv, look at me. What. About. Us?”


I forced myself to look at him. My head and heart were at war. My heart wanted him to wrap me in his arms and tell me everything was going to be okay. That Amber would heal. That Sharn would meet her Prince Charming. That we really did have something. But my head knew better. My head would always know better.


“There is no us. I’m sorry, Ethan. Goodbye.” I turned from him and fled back to the limo.


“You’re running from me, Liv. Don’t use this as an excuse to run,” he called out.


Once in the safety of the limo, I slammed the door behind me, ignoring Sharn’s questioning glare.


“How is she?”


“A mess. This will leave scars.” Sharn answered.


I leaned my head onto the backrest and pressed a finger to my lips, trying to remember what kissing Ethan felt like. Was it even real? It didn’t feel real. Not now. It felt like a dream—the really good kind, until you wake up and realize it was just that.


A dream.


Because in the harsh light of day, life wasn’t like that. It was hard—full of hurt and people who let you down.


No, life wasn't like a dream at all.
