[ Excerpt Reveal ] Eminent Love by Leddy Harper

If you missed the cover reveal of EMINENT LOVE by Leddy Harper on Hypable last week, you have got to take a look below! This cover is absolutely STUNNING. 

Plus - get your first look at what's inside!


About EMINENT LOVE
Life doesn’t always start with once upon a time. Love doesn’t always end with happily ever after. After spending five years with the love of my life, I did nothing to stop her from walking away. She had her reasons to leave. I had my reasons to stay. But a year later, the realization of loss hits me, and I’ll stop at nothing to fix it. I leave everything behind to drive across the country to win her back, and I refuse to accept anything other than fulfilling old promises. But the only certainty in life is: nothing is as expected. The most valuable lessons don’t often revolve around a fairytale ending—frequently, they come from hurt and healing. They come from the kind of personal growth love offers. The mending of your heart, your soul, and your life. And every once in a while, you find the greatest gifts in the packages you never expected to open.

Get your first look at EMINENT LOVE:
I’ve done nothing for a year other than think of her and remember how good I’d had it. How healing her love was for me. How I’d never find anything resembling it again. Not like I’d tried, but that didn’t mean anything. Nothing had meaning without her. Nothing. I inhaled deeply, my heart hammering away…and I pressed call. My breathing ceased as it rang. Once. Twice. Three times. And then her voice came through the line. Such a soft sound, like a melody. Warm and soothing, just like her. The air blew out harshly past my lips as I readied myself to speak, to recite the words I’d held onto for a year. Although, before my lungs completely deflated, my breath caught in my chest, burning me from the inside out. “Hey, you’ve reached Layne. Well, not really. You’ve reached my voicemail. I wasn’t able to get to my phone fast enough, but if you leave a message, I’ll call ya right back.” With my eyes closed, I could picture her perfectly. Her smile was evident in her voice, in the way she spoke with a lilt at the end of her words. Pain. That’s what listening to her voice filled me with. Immense torture. I couldn’t even form enough thought to come up with something to say. When the beep sounded, I didn’t speak. One second. Two. Three. Four seconds of complete silence dragged out before I finally ended the call. “Fucking stupid idiot,” I said aloud as I slammed the phone down on the table. My face immediately fell into my hands. Of course she didn’t answer. She had no reason to. She’d said all she needed to say in the email she’d sent about a month after we’d broken up. An email I’d disregarded for weeks before finding the patience to open it. I should’ve responded then. I should’ve done something. However, I chose to dismiss her and the entire situation. It had been easier at the time because I’d allowed the fury inside to burn stronger until any ounce of compassion regarding her or our life together had been decimated, charred beyond recognition. Turned into ashes and then carried away by the wind.

[Cover Reveal] The Playbook by Kelly Elliott



theplaybookbanner

playbook_amazon

 
playbook_amazon
My life revolved around two things. Football and my cock. And not necessarily in that order. Being the head football coach for a top university in Texas had its ups and its downs. The ups? Endless women to f*ck. The downs? The politics that came with the job. From the moment Aubrey Cain walked into my office, she turned my world upside down. Being forced to have her follow me around for a month was going to be a pain in the ass. Especially since I couldn’t keep my eyes off of her. The best I’d hoped to come out of this was a few nights with her in my bed. I never imagined she’d be the game changer. Brett Owens was my assignment. Head football coach for a top college, bad boy reputation, short temper, and handsome good looks should have scared me off. But I was tougher than that. From the first words out of his obnoxious, dirty-talking mouth, I knew it was going to be a long month. It wasn’t five minutes after meeting him, he hit on me. If only I had known his blue eyes would haunt my dreams and awaken a desire inside of me I never knew existed. This was business. There was no way I would be tempted by him no matter how good looking he was or how many things he whispered in my ear. He was only supposed to be my assignment. Not the man who threatened to destroy both my heart and my career. I would follow along with his playbook for now. But who would end up winning was anyone’s guess. The Playbook is a stand-alone novel.

[Review] Faithfully Shattered by Nicole Munick



When a car accident takes the lives of her parents and spares her, Adalyn Weaver is devastated, depressed and wanting nothing more than to join her parents. Just as she’s on the brink of letting everything go Luca Brooks shows up taking an interest in Adalyn and making it his mission to help her heal. Just as Adalyn begins to get her life on track her house is ransacked by a group of people looking for her father’s research regarding a secret project he was working on just before he died and they’re willing to kill for it. Adalyn finds out that the death of her parents may have not been an accident at all and Luca may be the key to what happened that night but the truth may destroy them both.




Review
Faithfully Shattered is a book that will make you want more Luca. He is the perfect mysterious and all around bad boy that readers always fall for. Since the beginning I questioned his intentions, but as always I quickly fell for the way he was there for Adalyn and the way he would protect her. Luca just knows how to warm your heart. 

Faithfully Shattered was very well written and I liked the voice of Adalyn. She had been through so much heartache that she was just suffering. It was so sad but I am glad that Luca was there. Adalyn grew throughout the book and that is one thing that I really liked. She did have her difficult moments but they were acceptable. The book wasn't rushed and I appreciate that. I am glad that Adalyn was angry and that it took her time to finally open up. This is how it's supposed to be. 

The problem I had was that I knew where this books was going, since the beginning I had an idea, but it took long to get there. That is one thing that I disliked. I didn't want predictable but I felt it was. I also wanted to feel more of the characters emotions. But other than that I think that this book was great. I really enjoyed the characters interactions and the way that it moved forward.

I am so ready for the next book because I need to find out more. There are still so many secrets that I need to find out! I need to know more about Adalyn and Luca. The ending was were all the action was and I loved that! It makes me anticipate book two even more. Faithfully Shattered was just the beginning, I am ready for more of these characters and their story.

[ Blog Tour ] Dirty Sexy Cuffed by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde


Dirty Sexy Cuffed
By Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde
Series: Dirty Sexy #3
Release Date: June 21, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance


"Scintillatingly sexy. Phillips and Wilde deliver a sinfully hot story you won't soon forget!" K. Bromberg, NY Times Bestselling Author

"The love story Phillips and Wilde crafted was rare, dipped in a reality so natural and organic it held my heart from the very first page." Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Synopsis:
Are you ready to get Cuffed? As a cop, Levi Kincaid is all about discipline and control . . .in the bedroom, and out of it, and he's always been very careful about choosing women who abide by his rules. Hot sex and intense pleasure? No problem. Emotional commitment and forever promises? No way. But he never anticipates falling for a blue eyed angel who makes him want to cuff her to his bed and do dirty, sexy things to her. And that control of his? It doesn't stand a chance against Sarah Robins, the one woman he can't resist . . .  
Excerpt:
"When are you going to face the fact that this chick just isn't into you?" Levi Kincaid glanced across the dark interior of the unmarked SUV to his partner, Nick Catalano, who was alternating his attention between navigating the road and making sure Levi saw his smart-ass smirk. It wasn't the first time his friend had given Levi shit about his request to stop by Circle K on their way back to the station after their shift ended. For the past two months they'd been assigned to the DUI Strike Force in the area, which made stopping by the mart convenient. Seeing and flirting with Sarah Robins was just an added bonus. "She's totally into me, so that's not the issue," Levi refuted confidently, not at all bothered by Nick's ribbing. There were many times he'd caught the tempting way Sarah looked at him when she didn't think he was aware of her. And there was no mistaking the attraction between them she was so determined to fight. He just hadn't figured out why yet. But he would. "Then what's the problem?" Nick persisted—this from a man who was all about instant gratification when it came to women, while Levi was more . . . selective. "I'm not sure yet," he replied honestly. Truthfully, he was having a hell of a time getting past that wariness of hers, which only made him more curious about who Sarah Robins was— and where she'd come from. Admittedly, his interest in her had nothing to do with him being an inquisitive cop, and everything to do with him wanting her, in a deeper way than any female had gotten to him before. He just had to get her on the same page as him.  Levi wasn't normally the type of guy who'd continue to pursue a woman who'd already turned him down half a dozen times. A smart man would have cut his losses after the first rejection, but from the moment he'd looked into Sarah's sweet, soulful blue eyes, he'd felt a connection that only seemed to grow stronger every time he saw her. And he certainly didn't miss the irony of that realization, when he was a man adept at maintaining strict control of his emotions—in all aspects of his life. "This is a shit part of town," Nick said, stating the obvious, which brought Levi's thoughts back to the present. "As soon as we're off this DUI task force, I don't want to drive through this part of Englewood unless it's for a call, so close the deal with Sarah already." "Winning a woman over takes time, Catalano," Levi said easily—especially one as wary as Sarah. "Though that's something I wouldn't expect you to understand." "Hell, no," he agreed with a quick, player's grin. "That's too much fucking work when there are plenty of women who take one look at this uniform and are instantly willing and eager to bend over and drop their panties. Trust me, getting laid, and regularly, is not an issue for me." Levi had plenty of offers; he was just more particular about his bed partners. He didn't do one night stands, but he didn't do long term committed, either. The few women he'd dated and allowed into his private life were looking for the same thing he was—a mutually satisfying physical relationship without any emotional involvement. More importantly, they were willing to let him be in control during all aspects of sex. And Sarah, from everything he'd learned so far, didn’t strike him as the type looking for long term either. Which made his pursuit easier for him to justify … and live with. Arriving at the Circle K, Nick turned the SUV into the deserted lot. He drove past the gas station area and stopped in front of the convenience store instead of parking the vehicle. "I noticed the back tire was low at the DUI check point," Nick said, explaining why he hadn't pulled into one of the many empty spaces in front of the mart like he normally did. "While you run inside and do your thing, I'm going to drive around back and fill the tire up with air. I'll meet you out front when you're done." "Sounds good." Levi released his seat belt and opened the door. "You want anything?" Nick grinned. "Yeah, I'll take a root beer and a Snicker's bar." "You got it." Levi hopped out of the truck, and while his partner drove off and disappeared behind the building, he headed toward the store. Out of years of habit, he glanced around the area, looking for anything, or anyone, who might be out of place. Especially in this part of town. But it was a quiet evening, and there weren't any other cars or people around, which wasn't unusual for a late Tuesday night. He walked into the store, and to his immediate left was the main counter and two registers. Sarah was sitting on a stool reading a magazine, and as soon as she heard someone enter, she looked up. Her bored expression immediately transformed to one of pleasure as a genuine, happy-to-see-him smile curved her soft, lush mouth, which never failed to make him think about slowly licking his tongue across that full lower lip before kissing her, or how that mouth would feel sliding down the length of his cock as she looked up at him from a kneeling position on the floor at his feet. Heat and desire mingled in his belly, and lower, as he strolled toward the counter. Yeah, he'd stored up five long week's worth of the hottest, most sinful fantasies of Sarah, in some of the most erotic scenarios he could imagine. Those dirty thoughts had come in handy when he'd lain in bed, hard and aching and needing relief. With his hand wrapped tight around his dick, those decadent visions playing through his mind never failed to alleviate his lust. But the relief was always temporary. He wanted the real thing. He wanted Sarah, her body soft and warm beneath his, and her willing to give herself over to him in all the ways he desired. And that kind of trust took time. And patience. Both of which he had in abundance.

[ Blog Tour ] Broken Love by Jillian Dodd




Broken Love
By: Jillian Dodd
Release Date: June 21, 2016
After years of crushing and many failed seduction attempts, Palmer Montlake had finally scored the sexy Cade Crawford. Both a little drunk when they got back to her place, they were frantic with need, their desire intense.But as the night progressed, the hot-mess hookup morphed to sweet lovemaking.The kind neither had ever experienced.
But they were destined for heartbreak.She was his best friend’s little sister.He was her talent agent.And they were dating in secret.When they got into a wicked fight and broke up, all hell broke loose.The kind neither have recovered from.
Six years later, they still hate each other.But the universe seems to keep throwing them together.When they catch the bouquet and garter at a mutual friend’s wedding, sparks fly between them — their chemistry undeniable.
Will they get a second chance? Or will they be left with a broken love?


BROKEN LOVE is a STANDALONE, CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE NOVEL following Cade and Palmer and is book 2 in the Love Series. The Love Series is a series of STANDALONE novels featuring a different Crawford sibling. 
They can be read by themselves. 
However if you do with to read them all, they are best enjoyed in order.


BROKEN LOVE:




Review
The sparks are one fire between these two! Broken Love is all about second chance romance. This book is the perfect story for all of those who love happy endings. For me this was the perfect quick summer read book and Jillian did an amazing job.

Cade and Palmer have known each other forever, she's his best friends little sister, which in bro-code is a big no-no. The tension between these two has always been strong and they try to fight it at all costs. After an argument ruined an earlier relationship between themselves and Palmer's brother Pike flash forward six years, everywhere they go and run into each other the tension is still present and strong as ever. Cade and Palmer experience  feelings of attraction but also broken love and friendship. After learning the truth of a certain situation will they allow themselves to experience a second chance love?

Cade is the Crawford brother I wish I had! When he wants something, he goes for it. That man never does anything without being all in. He truly is swoon worthy and never questioned his feelings for Palmer.

Palmer. The woman is stubborn and confident and knows her beauty. She had everything going for her, but was missing her puzzle piece. I loved her character and the struggles she went through to become who she needed to be for true happiness. 

Jillian Dodd knocked this book out of the park with not only the main characters but with the supporting characters. The Crawford family is hysterical and I was glad to see them back. I hope Palmer's brother Pike gets his own story, even if he isn't a Crawford, because he played a part in their story. I can't wait to see which Crawford has their story next.

This can be read as a standalone, but let's be honest, book 1 (Vegas Love) was just as amazing. Go fall in love with Cade and Palmer in Broken Love. I give this 4.5 stars.

Excerpt
We clink our glasses together then down the shots. The groomsman passes me a lime wedge, but I shake my head, causing him to pull me aside.

“My name’s Jared,” he says with a cocky smirk.
“I thought this was supposed to be a no-names night?” I reply, giving him shit, even though I have no interest in him.
“It is. But for you, I’ll make an exception. You need to know what name to say when I make you scream later.”
Cade comes up from behind Jared, clamping his big hand down on Jared’s skinny shoulder.
Jared glances back at Cade. They share some kind of a look that causes Jared to immediately ditch me. He saunters over to Tory and throws his arm around her, which earns him a hint of a smile from Cade.
“So does this mean you’re not married?” Tory asks Jared.
“Nope, I’m single as a Pringle,” he replies.
I expect Cade to say something to me, but instead he turns away.
I’m not sure what just happened, but I think it was some guy-code thing.
And it pisses me off.
Tory sees the rage on my face, takes my hand, and drags me off to the bathroom.
“What’s wrong?”
“Did you see that!?” I rant, as we step inside the ladies’ room, finding a long line. “Cade cock blocked me! Not that I wanted that guy’s cock, because you already called dibs on it, but Cade didn’t know that!”
“Since you don’t have a cock,” she replies. “I think it’s called blocking the box.”
“Oh, no,” the girl in front of us says. “It’s called twat blocking.”
“I thought it was boxed,” another woman says.
“Baseball players call cock blocking stealing signs.”
A voice from inside one of the stalls yells out, “It’s called clam jamming.”
Pretty soon everyone in the bathroom is giving us their opinions.

“Twat swatting or twat stopping.”
“Beaver dammed.”
“Va-jected!”
I shake my head at Tory. “Whatever. It really shouldn’t matter what part you have. I got cock blocked because I will be having no cock tonight.”
“There’s still time,” Tory says. “You can have the groomsman. You need to get laid worse than I do, honey. It’s been far too long.”
“But why would he cock block me and then walk away?!”
As soon as the words tumble out of my mouth, Cade’s mother steps out of one of the stalls.
I put my head down, hoping she won’t notice me and, thankfully, she squeezes past us without saying a word.
“Holy buckets,” Tory says when the door closes behind her. “Wasn’t that his mother?”
“Uh, yeah. You can kill me now.”
