About the Book

Positive. With two little lines on a pregnancy test, everything in Lizzy Rollins’ ordinary life is about to change forever. And all because of one big mistake in Vegas with Ben Nicholson, the irresistibly sexy bass player for Stage Dive. So what if Ben’s the only man she’s ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire at the same time? Lizzy knows the gorgeous rock star isn’t looking for anything more permanent than a good time, no matter how much she wishes differently.

Ben knows Lizzy is off limits. Completely and utterly. She’s his best friend’s little sister now, and no matter how hot the chemistry is between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he’s not going to go there. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he’s always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly learns that what happens in Vegas, doesn’t always stay there. Now he and Lizzie are connected in the deepest way possible…but will it lead to a connection of the heart?

Excerpt

His laughter, it didn’t really sound the smallest bit amused. “Christ. You’re done here.”

“Ah, no. I’m actually not. Now see, this is where we have a problem.” I folded my arms. Then unfolded them because like fuck I’d look defensive. He was the one in the wrong, not me. “You’re not prepared to take me, or my feelings, seriously. What you want is to hide away in Mr. Too Cool for Commitment land and just play with my affections when it suits you. Okay, I’ve accepted that. But none of that means it’s okay for you to come in here and act like you’re the boss of me. None of it.”

“That so?” he asked, leaning down so that we were almost nose to nose.

“That’s so, baby.” I play-punched him in the shoulder, which it should be noted, I barely came up to. Okay, so maybe the alcohol on a mostly empty stomach had made me slightly/lots braver/sillier. “So why don’t you take your little caveman jealous tantrum bullshit somewhere else. See, I do this funny thing I like to refer to as whatever the fuck I want. Understand?”

He just stared.

“And as pretty as you are with your beard and your muscles, you are too damn tricky and . . . complicated and shit for me.”

“I am?”

“Yes, you are. Are you finally seeing my point here?”

“You bet.”

“Excellent. So take your hotness elsewhere, kind sir. I want no part of it!” Huh. I had so told him. Drunken bravado was the best.

Review

Things were changing so fast. I was changing.

 

Exquisite guilty pleasure.

Stage Dive is one of my favorite series. Period. Each story is unique in its captivating beauty. Each story holds something special that makes it stand up. I connected with this characters so much because they simple were so real to me that it’s unbelievable how much and I’m don’t want to say goodbye to them because I won’t tell them goodbye. I’ll always have my paperbacks to come back to them and reread them all over again.

These characters and their stories will stay in my heart for a long time.

 

The man was magic. He made me feel.

 

Ben and Lizzy’s story was filled with tickling angst from the beginning. Angst that had me to glued to the pages of their story, flipping them with anticipation to see what will happen next. Angst that I simply felt and loved.

Like the previous books in this series, Deep also had so many funny, witty, emotional moments, amazing dialogues, wonderful character dynamics, engaging, addictive storyline and a beautiful love story.

Both Ben and Lizzy are very well developed characters. Kylie made them believable and easy to relate to. Her writing is simply amazing and it onlygets better.

 

 “You’re the only girl I want.”

 

I devoured this book like it was the last piece of my favorite chocolate.

Get this book, but make sure you have time because once you start it you will not want to put it down!

Release Blitz – Excerpt/Review/Giveaway: Becoming Rain (Burying Water #2) by K.A. Tucker

Becoming Rain

Title: Becoming Rain

Author: K.A. Tucker

Genre: New Adult Romantic Suspense

Release Date:March 3rd 2015.

Series: Burying Water #2

 

About the Book

Luke Boone doesn’t know exactly what his uncle Rust is involved in but he wants in on it-the cars, the money, the women. And it looks like he’s finally getting his wish. When Rust hands him the managerial keys to the garage, they come with a second set-one that opens up the door to tons of cash and opportunity. Though it’s not exactly legal, Luke’s never been one to worry about that sort of thing. Especially when it puts him behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 and onto the radar of gorgeous socialite named Rain.

Clara Bertelli is at the top of her game-at only twenty-six years old, she’s one of the most successful undercover officers in the Washington D.C. major crime unit, and she’s just been handed a case that could catapult her career and expose one of the west coast’s most notorious car theft rings. But, in order to do it, she’ll need to go deep undercover as Rain Martines. Her target? The twenty-four-year old nephew of a key player who appears ready to follow in his uncle’s footsteps.

As Clara drifts deeper into the luxurious lifestyle of Rain, and further into the arms of her very attractive and charming target, the lines between right and wrong start to blur, making her wonder if she’ll be able to leave it all behind. Or if she’ll even want to.

Goodreads

Excerpt

“Let us know if you have any more problems.” Luke flashes that wide, charming smile that stalls my feet just a little.

Still no mention of connecting again. In fact, I’d say Luke has gone out of his way to skirt the subject. He’s just not interested. That’s all there is to it. Or maybe he’s waiting for me to bring it up again. But if he’s not, then bringing it up will make me look desperate. I’m guessing he doesn’t like desperate women.

Luke Boone has me in a tailspin. No target has ever had me second-guessing myself this much, this early. It’s just the pressure of the case, I remind myself. “I’m sure I will.” I take long, slow steps, ensuring my movements are sleek and appealing, the opposite of my frantic thoughts, as I desperately search for another hook, since nothing I’m casting has caught so far.

“So, when did you say you’re cooking dinner for me?”

I fight the urge to groan with relief but I can’t keep the smile from exploding across my face. “Whenever you call me.” I turn to regard him, to see his smug face—like he knew I was waiting for it all along, like he was toying with me—and nod to the sheet on his desk. “You have my number.”

“I do.” His eyes twinkle. “I’ll call you soon.”

Thank fucking God.

I wait until I’m in my car and around the corner before turning off my wire and squealing like a fourteen-year-old who just got asked out to the movies. I dial Warner to debrief, my heart still racing. It’s standard protocol to call in after every meeting with my target. Up until now, I’ve had nothing but failure to report. And, while this may not seem like much . . .

I think I’m finally in.

Review

She’s everything I’m used to and yet she’s completely new.

 

Becoming Rain is quite a treat.

K.A. Tucker has once again proved that she has an excellent touch in combining so many different elements in her story and making it hard to stop reading.

Multi-layered plot and well-developed characters give this story a depth that’s quite frankly captivating.

 

Maybe I’m starting to like her too much.

 

Luke and Rain are engaging and very interesting characters‚ both flawed and both different than the other one expected. The attraction is something that both of them couldn’t deny. Rain definitely had a hard time controlling the growing feelings for Luke. They were on the same page here. Soon her feelings started to interfere with her job.

Watching these two get to know each other‚ getting closer with what they lives are was truly angsty‚ provoking and pleasing.

They both had a lot of things to question and at the end to make decisions.

 

I close my eyes with his words, as his mouth finds my collarbone. I am real. At least, parts of who he’s seen are. And this is real, what’s happening between us right now.

 

K.A. Tucker dived deep into their personalities and brought them alive. She successfully balanced the elements of mystery‚ suspense‚ crime and romance. There isn’t such thing as too much in this novel. Everything is just the way I like it.

This novel maybe has a little less romance then the previous K.A. Tucker´s novels and it definitely doesn’t lack in emotions department.

 

He doesn’t trust me. He’ll never trust me again. I can’t blame him.

But it hurts, all the same.

 

Thoughtful and pleasant‚ K.A. Tucker knitted another undeniably captivating story.

About the Book

Yorkshire, 1879I am alone.

 Goodreads

 

Excerpt

“You see?  You are completely virginal, though Lord knows those lips and eyes don’t look the part.”  Mr. Markham shook his head, as if to clear it.  “You have all of these firsts—kisses and caresses and more—left in front of you.  You are completely fresh to the world of grown men and women.”

He took hold of my hands and helped me stand to my feet.  “I think it’s best if we keep our distance from one another,” he said.  My whole body wilted in disappointment.  I wanted nothing less.

“Why?”

He pressed his forehead against mine just as he had this morning.  “Do you remember me saying that I had become a creature of needs after Violet’s death?  I wasn’t exaggerating and I wasn’t joking.  I’m accustomed to getting what I want.  And I want you.”

“What’s wrong with that?” I managed to ask.  “Why can’t we want one another?”

“You don’t understand what I mean.  When I say that I want you, I don’t mean your company or your conversation.  I don’t want to pine over you and write you poetry.  I mean,” he pronounced carefully, “that I want to bend you over this sofa and slide inside of you.  I mean that I want to pin you to the ground and watch you squirm as I drive into you over and over again.  I mean that I want to spend my evenings watching your pretty little head bob up and down on my cock.”

Review

You have no claim on him. You barely know him.

 

Thrilling. Mysterious. Vivid. Supreme tension. Sensual. Seductive. Intense. Intriguing. Tempting…

A unique and simply fascinating historical novel that you just have to love.

 

I’m accustomed to getting what I want. And I want you.”

“What’s wrong with that?” I managed to ask. “Why can’t we want one another?”

 

The last historical novel I read was The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins and I read it two months ago which for me it´s an eternity.

I love historical stories. Really really love them. I crave them on weekly bases because they have that something that contemporary ones surely will never have.

Sierra Simone your writing is unbelievable. Captivating‚ descriptive‚ detailed‚ teasing and so scorching. The perfect mixture of Daphne du Maurie‚ Jane Eyre and Anne Rice all wrapped in one amazing package.

I fell immediately in love with Ivy and Julian and their story. There are simply fabulous characters‚ well crafted and intriguing. The tension between them is hot and powerful.

Their story is historical with all the elements the define it but at the same time this novels feels so modern and close.

I am anxiously waiting to see what will happen in the next one.

Thomas Hardy‚ thank you for the cliffhanger. It always leaves me craving for more and more.

 

I loved Mr. Markham, and now he was here, in my arms, and I could easily let myself believe that was enough.
