His brother’s assistant not only seems to hate his guts, but she’s also not afraid to talk back to him and tempting enough to distract him from the billions he should be earning.

Then pictures of their one hot kiss leak to the gossip mags, and Sebastian has a brilliant idea.

What better way to get the gold diggers off his back than to take himself off the market?

It’s the perfect solution.

Except as things with Harper heat up, it becomes harder for Sebastian to remind himself that she’s only playing his fiancé for the money.

He’s a man who always gets what he wants. But is Harper more than he bargained for?

HOLDING OUT FOR HARPER is a steamy, fake relationship, enemies to lovers romance. It is the second book in the Holding Out series and can be read as a standalone.

Excerpt

When I meet Joel Matthews, I’m in an unexpected place in life.
Divorceville.
I mean who expects that after fourteen years of marriage to your high school sweetheart.
Not me.
It hits me while celebrating my birthday with my sisters that I’m thirty-five and single. Shouldn’t I finally date someone other than my ex?
I totally deserve that, right?
After way too many lemon drop shots, I’m tricked into trying on my younger sister considerate gift as she put it. Did I mention it’s a gag gift? A “my milkshakes bring all the boys to my yard” t-shirt and velour sweatpants with “Sin-a-Buns” written across my bottom which she finds all too hilarious.
That’s how Joel finds me, too smashed to open my apartment door and when I do, I take a drunken slip and slid across the floor with my Sin-A -Buns on full display.
Joel doesn’t seem to notice. Then again, I swear I heard a chuckle. But no matter, he’s right there to make sure I’m okay as any knight in shiny armor should do.
Okay, where did that come from? Clearly, I’m not in my right frame of mine.
When I look up into his gorgeous face, I forget all the reasons why it’s a bad idea to hook-up with my twenty-something neighbor. In fact, it’s a fan-freaking-tastic idea.
(Ride that pony, girl? Did I really just think that?)
Until I wake in the morning with a delicious ache between my legs and a pounding headache. I’m mature enough not to regret it, but adult enough to realize it can’t happen again.
First—I’m too old for him. He’s in his twenties for goodness sakes.
Second— I’m single for the first time in years. Like I’ve only ever dated one guy.
Third—Shouldn’t I date multiple men before I find the one? Wasn’t that my first mistake?
Only Joel isn’t giving up.
He’s determined to prove age is just a number—
And I’m his number one.

 Nico Merryweather loves women—all women. Sure, they’re sexy and fun. But “Player” is an easy reputation to hide behind, a way to keep the good times rolling and reality at bay. He’s loud, he’s cocky, he says exactly what he’s thinking, and people just laugh it off because they think they know him. But Nico makes sure no one is close enough to know the truth. With a new season starting, he is ready to play the game he can control. They’ll all be watching Nico, the goalie, but they’ll never know the man behind the mask who is just trying to breathe. He hasn’t ever wanted anyone close enough to him to see the truth, until Aviva rams herself into his ass. Literally. Aviva Pearce’s life is a collection of bad days all wrapped up without a bow. If it can go wrong, it will. All she wants is to run her business, take care of her sister, and keep her head above water. But with a father who is out to ruin her like he has himself and debt trying to drown her, it’s hard to stay afloat. Aviva isn’t the type to waste time dwelling on her misfortunes or to give up, though. She’s got too much fight in her. And she definitely doesn’t have time to waste on the wildly sexy, rich, showboating goaltender everyone wants. She’s got goals. What she doesn’t know is that Nico has goals of his own. And she’s number one on his list.

Cover Reveal! Out To Find Freedom By Lila Rose





Release Date: July 30, 2019


Death and pain.
They surround me. Hold me hostage, refusing to let go.
But I want to survive. Want to fight. I just don’t know if I have it in me.
Maybe dying would be better.
It’s the break in the shadows that gives me hope.
When I look at him, all I can see is light.
So now I’m out to find freedom.


Private investigator Ryan Warden doesn’t know he’s moved next door to people he would put behind bars in an instant. Nor does he realise a sleepless night could lead him on the right track with the case he’s working on.
He certainly doesn’t expect Emerson Spence.
What he does know is he has to stay away from her. She’s been beaten and broken. She deserves to live freely while learning and experiencing things in life like any young woman should.
He’s too old for her. It’s better to stay away.
If he can.

Review Tour! All Grown Up By Vi Keeland

ALL GROWN UP IS LIVE!
A Standalone Contemporary Romance
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland

All Grown UpWhen I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was too young for me.
Let’s back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again. So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site—one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date. Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration. The profile wasn’t supposed to go live. Another point that bears repeating—it wasn’t supposed to.
Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging. He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends. But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date only—my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart. I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.
Though, you know what they say…curiosity kills the cat.
My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.
Ford was seated at the bar. When he turned around, he took my breath away.
His sexy smile nearly melted my panties.
But…he looked so familiar.
As I got closer I realized why.
He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home.
The boy next door.
Only now…he was all man.
I hadn’t seen him in years.
I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me.
Which I did. Until summer came.
And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?

 You know those authors, the ones that are automatic reads, that you have loved every book they have written? Well for me one of those authors is Vi Keeland and let me add All Grown Up to another one I loved from this talented author. I loved the switch up from older man younger woman to older woman and a younger man. I think we need more of what could be called a cougar romance especially if they are as good as All Grown Up was. Vi Keeland knows how to grab her reader’s attention and keep it from the beginning until they very end. Ford and Valentina are two characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. There was a perfect balance of sweet, angst, sexy and laugh out loud moments. All Grown Up is a must read for fans of Vi Keeland as well as for anyone looking for an amazing book to read because look no further you will have found it in this one!

Double Cover Reveal! Siners Are Winners & If You Say So By Lani Lyn Vale




SINNERS ARE WINNERS
Release Day – Oct 8

He saw her from across a crowded ballpark and knew she was about to change his life.
Yes, he realizes just how cliché that really is, but the moment his eyes locked on her, he knew that she was the one.
At least, the one that royally screwed him over. The one responsible for his demotion and the subsequent disciplinary action taken against him before he’d even gotten out of the probationary period with Kilgore Police Department.
It all started with a kiss.
***
Saylor Rae Spada tried to mind her business. She also tried to not get involved in petty disputes.
However, from the moment she saw him sitting next to her at a professional baseball game, a game she didn’t even want to be at but was dragged to by her blind date, she couldn’t look away.
Then the kiss cam came on, featuring none other than her and the handsome stranger.
Without missing a beat, he kissed her.
Then her blind date decided to pull a knife and try to stab him.
From that point forward, she’s done nothing but cause him trouble.
Trouble that he’s starting to find increasingly adorable.

Gabriel Luca Maldonado, III and Francesca Leandra Solomon were meant to be. They were so in love that everybody prayed for what they had.
Everything was glorious. They would get married, have children and live a perfect life. She would be a doctor in the emergency room once she finished her doctorate, and he would be a badass Navy SEAL and save people for a living.
But then Luca is deployed across the world, and per military regulations, Frankie isn’t allowed to follow.
They’ve overcome a lot in their short relationship, and they can overcome this, too. Two years was a piece of cake. She’d finish her schooling and wait for him. And when he finally returned home, they would marry.

Release Blitz! Kozart By J. Nathan



Kozart Savage is the world’s biggest rock star. 
At twenty-five, he’s got it all.
Money. Fame. And the adoration of fans everywhere. 
He thought that was enough to make him forget his past. 
Enough to transform his distrusting heart. 
Turns out that’s not how it works...
Then he meets a bridesmaid hiding out in a hotel bar. 
Probably the only girl on the planet who doesn’t know who he is. 
But she seems to be the one girl who can give him something no one else can.

Aubrey Prescott just discovered her boyfriend cheating—at her sister’s wedding. 
Trying to escape humiliation, she seeks refuge in a hotel bar.
While trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces of what was supposed to be an amazing senior year in college, a handsome stranger interrupts her wallowing. 
A stranger who quickly makes her forget why she’s there. 
One who, after an unforgettable night, disappears without a second glance.

But walking away doesn’t always mean letting someone go.

It has been a while since I have really enjoyed a Rockstar themed book, but author J. Nathan is quickly becoming a favorite author so I couldn’t pass Kozart up. Kozart was a great Rockstar romance that reminds us even though they may be rich and famous, musicians are people too. They have painful pasts, real life problems that they cover up with their performances on stage or even the lyrics in their songs.

I loved how Kozart and Aubrey had this connection that went beyond something only sexual. They healed each other in a sense and possibly saved each other as well. The way Z is with her made me smile and even when he messes up you could feel the pain, he felt from possibly losing Aubrey forever. Aubrey may have caught her boyfriend cheating on her at her sister’s wedding, but I think she was the one who won out of that bad situation. Aubrey didn’t care who Z was, she didn’t even know at first because she saw beyond the Rockstar to the man underneath.

I don’t know if J. Nathan plans on any books for the other band members doing but I do hope that she does. Kozart is one that needs to be on the top of TBR lists for sure!

I gave myself one last look and grabbed the handle on the door. I stepped out, gasping as someone grabbed my arm and pulled me out the nearby exit door. 
My heart raced as I pulled free, spinning around in the dark alley we’d ended up in. 
Kozart stood in front of me, a ball cap pulled down low on his head and a smirk on his face. 
My eyes widened. “What are you doing here?”
He dug his hands into the pockets of his torn jeans. “I was in the neighborhood.”
I glanced around the windowless alley with its giant dumpsters and foul odor. 
“I was in town,” he clarified. “I just wanted to grab a drink and low and behold, here you are.”
“Said every good stalker.”
He threw his head back and laughed. The sound was just as sexy as it was over the phone, if not more as it echoed in the alley. 
“And I’m sure I don’t need to mention the dragging-me-out-of-the-bar-into-a-dark-alley thing,” I added. 
He chuckled, his eyes lowering to the pavement.
