✯BOOK BLITZ:✯ Hold You Against Me by Skye Warren {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}

Hold You Against Me by Skye Warren

Release Date: May 31st 2016 by Smashwords Edition
Series: Stripped #4
Genres: Adult, Romance

Once upon a time the daughter of a mafia king fell in love with a foot soldier.

This fairy tale didn’t have a happy ending.

My sister and I barely managed to escape alive, and we’ve lived in relative hiding ever since. I’m safe now, but I can never forget the boy who gave his life to save mine.

Except there’s a chance that he’s still alive. And he’s fighting a war.

Even knowing the risks, I have to find him. I have to find some way to protect him, the way he protected me. But he isn’t the boy I left behind. He’s a violent man. A criminal. And he’s been waiting for me—the final pawn in a dark game of survival and love.


Something moves me gently, constant and rhythmic like waves. I’m warm. There’s something soft curling around my arms, wrapped inside my fists. Padding beneath my cheek that smells like home.

An unnatural darkness weighs down on me, keeping me from waking up—a demon’s whisper in my ear. You’re warm, you’re safe. Sleep.

But something is wrong.

I remember falling asleep, so suddenly, remember drinking water that I hadn’t filled. And I remember the phone call from Amy telling me that Giovanni’s alive. Impossible.

Awareness pricks my skin like a cold breeze. Wherever I am, I’m not alone.

I blink rapidly, forcing my eyes open. They adjust to the darkness quickly, taking in the tinted windows on either side and the wide leather bench curving beneath me. I’m in a car. A limo, to be exact. And it’s moving.

On the opposite side of the long space, a large body reclines. I can see the wide stance of his legs, the pale white of his shirt. A suit jacket tossed beside his hip. His face is hidden in the shadows of the vehicle.

I was raised by the head of the Las Vegas mafia, the capo. I grew up around guns and violence, so I know when a man is armed. It’s the way he holds himself, the warning shimmering around him like a dark halo.

This man is armed and extremely dangerous.

Every muscle in my body tenses. My mind still swims in thick water, because I must have been drugged. He drugged me, this faceless man. Why did he take me? It won’t be anything good, that’s for sure.

Even worse, I suspect this has something to do with my past, with my family. It’s messed up that I’d rather be taken by some random psycho. But at least then I’d have a chance of getting away.

“Who are you?” I demand, my voice hoarse from whatever drugs they gave me.

There’s a long pause, the weight of his regard as heavy as a finger trailing down my neck.

“Have I really changed that much, bella, that you don’t recognize me?”

“Hold still,” he said.

I froze. My thoughts instantly drew a large coiling snake at my feet, but then a gentle wipe of his thumb swept across my cheek. I jerked away in response. “What are you doing?” I covered his path with my hand, as if the man-germs burned me.

“Hold still. You made it worse. And don’t look at me like I’m your favorite dessert, it’s not helping the situation any.”

There was a tease in his tone. “What situation?” I asked. “And I’m not. Trust me.” I displayed the most repulsed expression I could. The hem of his shirt pulled up over his crossed arms and cleared his head. “Whoa.” My palms few up. “You’re reading the signs all wrong. Put your shirt back on,” I pleaded to him. My eyes widened, soaking up the definition of his stomach. Holy abs.

“You like what you see?” He laughed, waggling his eyebrows.

I gained my composure and mocked a laugh. “I was just thinking you’re almost as toned as I am. Close, but not quite there yet, big guy,” I said, patting his stomach.

His closed lipped dimpled smile awakened something inside of me. The same smile I saw the morning on Senders Rock, the one that sent tingles through my body. I wanted to pull my eyes away. But he was beautiful.

Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

“Life taught me an eternal love will demand the worst sacrifices. A transcendent love will split your soul, cleaving you into pieces. A love this strong doesn’t grant you sweetness—it grants you pain. And in that pain is the greatest pleasure of all.”

Q made me the happiest esclave in the world. He gave me his heart, his empire, his ruthless unforgiving love. And life finally left us in peace. 

A man like my maître has special needs though, growing stronger as our lives intertwine. The only way to survive his monster is to agree to all his desires. 

Including his latest wish. 

I’m his. 

And I won’t refuse.

Tess and I remained quiet, letting the others do the entertaining.

The staff cleared the table, appearing and disappearing effortlessly. It felt as if we were alone and in a private sanctuary rather than a cavernous castle.

Finishing his wine, Frederick stood up, helping Angelique to her feet with a doting smile. They made a handsome couple with their svelte frames and similar features. I didn’t have many close friends, but those I did, I cherished.

“Let’s play a few parlour games. What do you say?” Frederick clapped his hands, encouraging us to stand.

Tess rolled her eyes as Franco plucked Suzette from her chair.

“I don’t think monopoly or scrabble are what most of us have in mind tonight.” Tess murmured too low for anyone but me to hear as she came toward my side.

Wrapping an arm around her waist, it came off as kind and loving, but the fierce way I glued her to my side spoke of domination and desire. “Shall we retire and find our own entertainment?” I whispered in her ear.

She smiled coyly. “I think that’s a—”

“Come on. No excuses. A few games together and then we’ll head to bed.” Frederick in his bossiness didn’t let us say no.

With a mixture of grumbles and half-hearted hesitation, he ferried us into the room attached to the great hall and motioned us to sit in the mismatch velour love-seats and wingbacks grouped together around a low coffee table. Nestled by the chairs were a whiteboard, markers, and other paraphernalia.

“What the hell are you planning, mon ami?” I asked, reluctantly letting Tess pull me onto a love-seat with her.

Angelique answered for him, tugging her long dark hair over her shoulder. “Well, we’re in a castle. We thought it would be fun to play some of the parlour games that would’ve been their entertainment back in the day.”

I groaned dramatically. “I’d much rather drink.” I pinched Tess beside me, hissing in her ear. “And then play with you.”

✯BOOK BLITZ:✯ Maybe Never by Ella Miles {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}

Maybe Never by Ella Miles

Release Date: May 26th 2016
Series: Maybe #2
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Suspense

Will one mistake destroy her life? Will one secret? One lie?

Kinsley Felton thought she had found a solution to her problems. She thought she had convinced her family that she is strong enough to run the company, if not on her own, then with help. She thought she had won when she decided not to marry Killian and instead just date him. But everything she thought was wrong.

Killian isn’t who she thought he was. Now she is sitting in a jail cell for something she didn’t do because of him. But maybe she deserves to sit in jail anyway to pay for her past mistakes. All she knows is she needs to stay far away from Killian no matter how much her heart aches for him.

Will Kinsley let herself get lost in the deceit or will she save herself and take another chance at love?

Purchase: Amazon


Kinsley bites her lip. “I used to hate you but now I realize who I should be hating.”

I stick my hands in my pocket to keep me from doing something stupid. “And now?”

“Now I sorta love you.”

I grin and do something stupid - despite trying as hard as I can to keep my hands firmly in my pockets, they fly out and grab Kinsley. One hand tangles in her newly cut hair that is still wet from being out in the rain too long. The other wraps around her waist where I can see her skin through the see-through portion of her dress in the middle, but I can’t touch her skin. And my lips touch her soft lips while my tongue tangles with hers in a desperate kiss.

A kiss that I was afraid I would never get again. I thought she would still hate me. I thought she wouldn’t believe me, but somehow she did. Now I just have to protect her from the truth I just discovered. A truth that is a million times more hideous then what either of us knew to be true.

But before I figure out how to protect her I have to have her. I can’t stand that I left her when she wasn’t safe. I can’t stand that I left her feeling like I didn’t love her. I can’t stand that I hurt her and I can’t stand that my cock isn’t already buried inside her within a minute of seeing her because I need to feel close to her. I need to forget what I just learned. I need to forget that if I choose to be with her past tonight I’m jeopardizing a career that I’ve worked my ass off for over ten years.

“Excuse me ma’am. Would you like another glass of the Bordeaux you were drinking?” the cocktail waitress asks Kinsley.

Kinsley reluctantly pulls her lips away from me. “No thanks.”


I smile seeing that Kinsley ordered the first drink I ever got her.

“No. I’m good.”

Kinsley grabs her glass of wine behind her and finishes the last sip off before handing the empty glass to the waitress. “Thank you,” she says her eyes trained on my lips.

Before the waitress even leaves, her soft plump lips are on mine, torturing me, knowing that I can kiss, but I can’t get what I want right now no matter how hard I get for her. I press my cock against her stomach to show her how much I need her. Her eyes open and are filled with her own need. She needs me. Now.

I pull away so my lips are just resting on her. “Fuck, that look is the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen.”

She grins. “You haven’t seen sexy yet.”

She grabs my hand and then we are walking instead of kissing. I let her lead me a few feet when I tug hard on her hand until she is spinning back toward me. I grab hold of her neck and kiss her again. She gives into the kiss as I sweep my tongue into her mouth. She moans just a little and then pushes me away laughing.

“You have to stop that if you want more than just a kiss.”

“What?” my eyes widen at her words.

She leans forward until her mouth is at my neck. “If you want to fuck me, you have to stop kissing me so I can take you somewhere that is not swarming with people.” And then she sucks my neck before pulling away. I’ve taught her well.

She grabs my hand again and then she’s leading me off the casino floor. I frown though when she doesn’t lead me to the lobby to get a room. “Where are we going? Shouldn’t we head to the lobby to get a room?”

She bites her lip as she flashes me a wicked grin. “I can’t wait that long. Can you?” she cocks her head to the side and I realize I was wrong. This is the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen.

She pulls on my hand again and we are walking faster down a long hallway and then another. I have no idea how she knows where she is going, but she does. She slows when she gets to the end of a hallway and then is pushing me into a bathroom.

I grin. “You naughty girl.”

Her tongue slips inside my mouth as her arms go around my neck hungrily. It’s the most desperate kiss I’ve ever felt from her and I match her hunger kiss for kiss.

“God, I want you.”

“Then take me.”

✯BOOK BLITZ:✯ Eternal Heat by J.L. White {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}

Eternal Heat by J.L. White

Release Date: May 16th 2016 by Velvet Pen Books
Pages: 225
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Play with me. 

They call us the Firework Girls. 

I’m Ashley. My music is like a lover, surrounding me. Filling me. Transporting me with its power. 

Much like he did … before he broke my heart. 

Now he’s back, wanting another duet. Can I play the same old song? Do I even want to? 

Purchase: Amazon


“It’s been a long time since we played together.”

I glance back at the piano. “Uh, yeah. It’s been a bit.”

“Do you remember Chopin’s Sonata in B Minor?” he asks.

I give him a look. Of course I do. That one was our favorite.

He gives me a questioning smile.

I sigh and roll my eyes. “All right then. You first.”

He grins wider and heads to the bench. I can’t help but smile at him. I’ve missed playing with him, too. I drift to the piano and rest my hand on its smooth surface.

His hands hover above the keys, but he doesn’t play. He glances up at me.

He pats the spot on the bench next to him.

I hesitate, then sit down.

He takes a satisfied breath and begins to play. That’s all it takes. We’re caught up in the music again, but that’s not all. Or at least, it isn’t for me. As we take turns playing, and even start to play a duet together, I’m caught up in all those old feelings of love I had for him. They’ve returned so strongly, I’m not sure they belong entirely to the past.

I feel a little swept out to sea. Erik is next to me and his music is all around me and my defenses are falling. He could walk right into my heart again, if he wanted to.

We finish our duet but don’t say a word.

We don’t look at one another.

We only keep our eyes on the keys and our hands in our laps. I’m breathing a little too hard. He is, too.

“Ashley,” he says softly, “I’m really glad you’re here at Hartman.”

I nod, keeping my eyes on the black and white keys in front of me. “I’m glad you’re here, too,” I say. And I am.

I feel him looking at me. I slowly bring my eyes to his face. Everything else falls away. It’s only Erik. And me. And everything between us.

He’s holding my eyes and I can’t look away. But I’m afraid because I think he’s going to kiss me, and what then?

✯BOOK BLITZ:✯ Hot & Nerdy 2 by Shannyn Schroeder {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}

Hot & Nerdy 2 by Shannyn Schroeder

Release Date: May 24th 2016 by Lyrical Press
Pages: 336
Genres: Adult, Contemporary

Adam, Hunter, and Free have a lot in common, like geeky passions and not exactly great track records when it comes to dating. But a New Year's Eve bash will bring everything they've ever wanted--and so much more . . . 

His Work Of Art

Adam Hayes has never met a girl like Reese. She's sassy, smart, and loves talking comics, although he can't see why she'd choose DC over Marvel. He's thrilled to finally put his artistic chops to use in their upcoming comic project. But when the two combine forces, they churn out magic in more ways than they had planned . . . 

His New Jam

There's something unusual about the sarcastic percussionist Hunter Reed hired for his band. For one thing, she's impervious to his advances. But when Hunter sees how passionate Sydney is behind the drums, he orchestrates a plan to find out if she kisses like she plays. What he doesn't anticipate is falling so hard . . . 

His Dream Role

Free Mitchell loves the theater. When he's masquerading as Dr. Who or Sherlock Holmes, he feels he can escape his shy, dorky persona. But nothing's prepared him to play boyfriend to a gorgeous girl like Samantha Wolf. The more time they spend together, the more they seem to be going off the script, and the hotter everything gets . . .


He strode into the kitchen with his jacket open. He, too, wore a T-shirt with his jeans. His dark blue T-shirt read Hermits Unite! in white letters.

“Interesting shirt. Are you sure it’s all right to leave your cave to be out in public?”

He ran a hand over the front of his shirt. “Uh, it’s another Doctor Who reference.”

She smiled at that. Even not in costume, he wore his geekhood. “Speaking of which, I watched a few episodes of the tenth doctor. You were quoting him.”


“When we talked about books. You said something like books are the best weapons. I thought it was cool at the time, but then I learned you stole the line from Doctor Who.”

He blushed but took a step closer to her. “I tend to do that—use lines from the character I’m portraying. It’s the actor in me.”

“Is that all?”

“No. It also makes things easier when I’m nervous. If I use someone else’s words, I won’t embarrass myself.”

“Interesting tactic. I might have to give it a try.”

He laughed. “You? I can’t imagine you ever get nervous.”

“Maybe I’m a better actor than you are.” The air between them filled with tension, but it was good. She drew nearer to him. “For instance, I’m extremely nervous right now.”

“Why?” His voice had dropped to a lower register, and it was sexy as hell.

“Because I want tonight to be good, and first dates tend to suck.”

“I’ll do my level best to make sure it doesn’t.”

She stood close enough that she watched his pulse thump in his neck. She had the urge to kiss him to see if his pulse would spike, but part of her feared it would scare him away.

She licked her lips, tasting her strawberry gloss, and asked, “Ready to go?”

He stepped back and swept out an arm. “As you wish.”

She pointed at him. “I know that one. Princess Bride, right?”

“Very good.”

“You won’t need quotes tonight. You already got me on a date. No need to be nervous.” She reached into the closet and tugged her coat off a hanger.

“Easier said than done.”

“I always thought that for a guy, asking was the hardest part.”

“True, it only takes about twenty seconds of insane courage.”

“Ha! I know that one too. We Bought a Zoo. Don’t you think it’s a little weird that you can pull out quotes throughout a conversation like it’s nothing?”

He took her coat and held it open for her to slide into. “We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all.”

She turned, still standing close enough to brush against him as she pulled her coat closed. She stared and tried to decide whether that was another quote.

He slowly slid his hands under her hair and freed it where it had been trapped under her collar. In doing so, he was even closer. She smelled his cologne and wanted to bury her nose in his neck. His thumbs caressed her neck and he leaned close to her ear. “The Breakfast Club.”

His breath on her ear sent a zing through her body. Something about his quiet mannerisms made her want to rub up against him.
