Wolf Bite by Nina West is LIVE (+Excerpt/Giveaway)


Isolated in the luxurious Wolf Cove Hotel in Alaska, Abbi Mitchell is thousands of miles away from her family and friends.

In the hands of a predator. Potentially.

After discovering condemning information about the mercurial man who controls her day-to-day work life and, now, her most intimate private life as well, Abbi's not sure she can continue on with... whatever is going on between her and Henry Wolf. Especially when he's about to be thrown into a fiery media circus ring, and she, along with her reputation, will undoubtedly get dragged into it with him.

But breaking things off with the Big Bad Wolf now likely means losing her job and her summer of freedom, and going back to the farm and her controlling mother.

She's not doing that.

Abbi does have something to hold over Henry's head. If he forces her hand. If she has the guts to do what amounts to blackmail.

But will the all-powerful Henry Wolf concede, or will she finally feel his bite?

Wolf Bite is Book 2 in the Wolf Cove series and should be read after finishing Wolf Bait (Book 1).


That’s when my personal phone starts ringing. The one sitting inside my purse.

I stifle the urge to hiss with panic as I fumble for it, the strap of my purse slipping off my shoulder in the process. It hits the floor with a soft thud. I dive for it, cursing under my breath as I root through the pocket with frantic hands, finding it and flipping the silence button on the side. Hoping the noise will go unnoticed.

I’m still on my knees with my head bowed when the door creaks open wider and Henry’s polished black shoes appear in front of me.

“I’ve gotta go. Call me when you’re in my office and I’ll give you the code to the safe,” Henry demands, his voice unnaturally calm as compared to a moment ago, though no less hostile. 

I take my time collecting the few items that spilled from my purse while I decide what to do. What should I say? Do I play dumb? Do I say I just got here? Do I pretend I don’t know a thing, and smile and wait expectantly for him to kiss me?

Tell me to strip? 

F*ck me on his desk? In his bed?

Even as appalled as I am with him right now, I’d be lying if I said the thought of having him touch me doesn’t spark heat between my thighs. He’s turned me into some sort of sex deviant. But I can’t just sit here on my knees as if I’m waiting for him to unzip his fly. I finally dare look up, in time to see his hand stretch out in front of him, palm out.

It could be considered a gentlemanly offer, and yet from Henry Wolf I hear the command.

Sliding my fingers over his calloused palm—he must have earned those splitting wood—I ease to my feet. I take a deep, calming breath before I let my gaze climb his firm, hard body, his charcoal designer suit as perfect and out of place in the wilds of Alaska as on any other day, before meeting his eyes. The cold, steely blue in them instantly creates knots in my stomach.

“You have a bad, bad habit of eavesdropping, Abigail,” he whispers.

He knows I hate being called Abigail, but now’s not the time to remind him of that. I clear my throat to avoid sounding weak and fearful. “I didn’t want to interrupt.”

“Liar.” His lip twitches with amusement, but it falls off so quickly. “What exactly did you hear?”

Here’s the moment of truth. Lie and smile, or confront him with what I know. Which is it?

Nina West lives in the city but spends her summers in the wilderness with her husband. She loves having a steaming cup of cocoa in one hand and a steamy story full of angst in the other.

Cover Reveal for An Unforgivable Love Story by BL Berry


Love is patient.
Love is kind.

She wanted to forget her past.
He wanted to change the course of his future.
She was everything he never knew he needed.
He became her unexpected.
Everything was perfect.
Until ...

BL Berry grew up telling lies. Eventually, those lies turned into elaborate stories and when she grew older she started writing them down. When she’s not hiding behind her computer writing, you can find her spending time with her family or catching up on her favorite TV shows. Rumor has it she’ll sleep when she’s dead.

Residing outside of Kansas City, she lives with her husband, two children and black pug. Each day her family thanks the makers of e-Readers, because without which they would be living amongst stacks and stacks of romance novels. Conversely, each day B.L. Berry thanks the makers of e-Readers for hiding her book-hoarding tendencies.



Kim Holden Revealed the Cover for SO MUCH MORE!!



Love is strange. It comes out of nowhere. There’s no logic to it. It’s not methodical. It’s not scientific. It’s pure emotion and passion. And emotion and passion can be dangerous because they fuel love…and hate.
I’m now a reluctant connoisseur of both—an expert through immersion. I know them intimately.

When I fell in love with Miranda, it was swift and blind. She was the person I’d elevated to mythical status in my head, in my dreams. 
Here’s the thing about dreams, they’re smoke. 
They’re spun as thoughts until they become something we think we want. Something we think we need.

That was Miranda. She was smoke. 

I thought I wanted her. I thought I needed her.

Over time reality crept in and slowly dissected and disemboweled my dreams like a predator, leaving behind a rotting carcass.

Reality can be a fierce bitch.
So can Miranda.

And I can be a fool...
who believes in dreams.

And people.

And love.

Some of my favorite things: reading, writing, the two coolest guys on the planet (my husband and son), my bicycle (my husband built it for me), Facebook (I'm fairly certain it's an addiction at this point), iced coffee (hazelnut), and music (LOVE Sunset Sons, the 1975, Dredg, the xx, Balance and Composure, Teenage Bottlerocket, and 30 Seconds to Mars). I also love dreaming, which brings me to my next point. I have one bit of advice for anyone reading this ... follow your dreams. It's never too late. Get started today ... heck get started RIGHT NOW! I wanted to write a book 20 years ago. Instead I waited. And waited. I should've been writing. But I didn't. I don't do regrets, because the past is just that, the past. But let me tell you there's nothing in the world like achieving something you've dreamt about for years and years. So, get started. Make your dreams reality. 

I love to hear from other readers. Send me a message or find me on Facebook ( and tell what's up in your reading world.



Elastic Hearts by Claire Contreras HAS A COVER!!!



Victor Reuben.
Most sought out divorce attorney in LA. 

Nicole Alessi.
Soon to be ex-wife of Hollywood's biggest star and Victor’s latest client. 

In such a high profile divorce, they can't afford any extra drama. Luckily, neither one of them has anything to hide.
Unless you count the mind blowing sex they had…
Three times all those years ago.

The past is in the past, though. As long as they keep their hands off each other until the divorce is final, they'll be fine. But she keeps wearing those tight dresses, and he keeps giving her those heated glances, and keeping their hands to themselves is proving to be more difficult than either one of them realize.

It won't be long before the paparazzi starts smelling the smoke, and where there's smoke...

She enjoys writing anything from children’s stories to erotic suspense, but her most notable work is a contemporary romance. When she’s not writing, she’s reading and dreaming about places she wants to visit.






Book Tour Review for Undo Me by M Robinson


I met her when I was sixteen. 

I fell in love with her when I was seventeen. 

She brought me to my knees when I was twenty. 

I loved her against reason.

I loved her against hope.

I loved her against all odds. 

Now she's back, a constant reminder of what I lost, what could have been.

I hate her. 

I resent her.

I still love her. 

Can I forgive her... 

Will she be my end once again or my beginning?

◆     ◆     ◆     ◆     ◆     ◆     
"She broke my heart, and yet there I was willingly waiting for her to do it again."

Holy cow....I don't even know where to begin right now, besides saying this was my FAVORITE book in this series so far!!!! I was so addicted to the angst and the panty-melting intensity between Dylan and Aubrey. The emotions were off the chart. On point. So good. Just right. Wow. 

Dylan was an asshole....and he didn't care that everyone knew it. But as much of an asshole as he was, he was sigh-worthy perfect. I loved everything about him. His mouth. His charm. His wit. His sexy body, hair, and smile. Yes....all of it. Check it off the list!! I was smitten with him immediately! He was a natural alpha, through and started young and only got better with age. So HOT. Even thought we got to see him in Complicate Me and Forbid Me, the inside scoop of his love with Aubrey was *shaking my head trying to explain* amazing. It was a love that sparked and kept on heating up. Oh my gosh...just to get you to try to understand. INTENSE. Ok? Intense.

This book literally had me on the edge of my seat. I chatted with a friend about this book since we were both reading it at the same time and I told her what was going to happen around 27%. I called it....BUT, even though I thought I knew what was going to happen, to watch it play out and to read it as it was happening was insanity. A love like theirs is not unheard of, but you don't see it every day and to go through everything they did was undeniably heartbreaking. At one point, I asked myself, 'what the f*ck did I just read???' Yes. I was literally sick to my stomach while reading a part that made me flinch. I felt more while reading this book than I did the first two combined...and I liked those books. My heart....I don't know what it can handle anymore. This one broke me.

I loved the fact that this book took place and worked in 'real time' along with the other books before progressing beyond what we saw in the first two books. M Robinson did a great job working this story in with everything else that was happening/happened and we got to see yet another angle. I am a true fan.....all the same timeframes, just multiple angles from different couples.

Dylan and Aubrey had a special bond. I just want to say that even though they were young, they grew up with heartbreak, trials and tribulations....but they kept on. Their bond was unbreakable. It was cohesive. It was persistent. It was durable. Until it wasn't anymore. The heartbreak was SO good to read. I sound evil, but I loved seeing the strength in not only Dylan's character, but in Aubrey's as well. She had a very resilient character that was put through a special kind of hell that she did NOT deserve. Heartbreaking.....lonely.....agonizing on every conceivable level. This book shook me to my core. To have this unfathomable connection that ran so deep only to be ripped up and tossed away by a series of events they had NO control over? Oh my gosh. So very well written. I felt all the pain and sacrifice through Aubrey's eyes, as well as Dylan's. I am still shaking my head. Read this book. I can't say enough how good this book was. So good. 

Just. Like. That.

"Shhh...feel my heart."
◆     ◆     ◆     ◆     ◆     ◆     


He pulled back a little, resting his forehead on mine to look into my eyes. To cripple me in ways I never thought possible. There was a hunger in his glare that I couldn’t quite place, he wasn’t even touching me and yet I still felt him all over. Both of us were panting, our breathing mirroring one another’s, our hearts escalating higher and higher and beating beside each other. 

So intense. 

So consuming. 

So mind-blowing. 

In that second, in that minute, in that hour… I wanted him. 

I wanted his touch, I wanted his kiss, I wanted his taste, I wanted all his movements, all his adoration and his love, all his devotion, his laugh, his smile, everything, anything. 

Every. Last. Part.


I reached for the front of his shirt, unbuttoning it and pulling it away from his body and he let me. I touched the pulse of his neck, down to his heart, passed his taut abs until I reached his belt. The warmth and velvetiness of his skin made my sex clench and my stomach flutter. The butterfly feeling never got old. It was becoming one of my favorite feelings. 

A feeling only he could ignite in me.

I gasped when he unexpectedly gripped my hand, stopping me. 

“Are you sure?” he huskily rasped, my favorite sound in the world. 

Before I could assure him, tell him what I felt so deeply in my heart, tell him how much he meant to me, how much I wanted to be his and only his, how much I wanted him to undo me. 

Own me. 

He hoarsely murmured against my lips, “Suga’ once I start there will be no going back. I won’t stop until I’ve explored every last inch of your flesh… until I’m etched so far into your heart that you’ll never be able to touch your skin and not feel me.”

With wide eyes I swallowed hard and breathed out, “Promise?”


He let go of my hand and I unclasped his belt, next were his slacks, pulling them apart and lowering the zipper. Before I could touch him where I really wanted to, where I had been craving since the second I saw him in his black tuxedo, he slapped my hand away. 

“This isn’t about me. This is about you.” 

His gaze set me on fire, my heart kicked into overdrive. I loved having him look at me like that. Knowing I never wanted him to stop looking at me in that way, the way that made me feel like we were the only two people in the world, like I was the only girl in the world. He had my heart in his hands, to do what he pleased with.

I knew right then and there that I would never be able to go without him.

He licked his lips and leaned in to kiss me. The second his tongue touched mine, it turned into its own moment, its own creation, its own world. His body fell forward and mine backward, pushing me further into my mattress. My legs spread wider and he readily lay in between them, placing all his weight on his arms that were cradling my face. The room was dim, but I could sense him everywhere and all at once. 

“You’re so fucking beautiful, Aubrey. So damn beautiful,” he groaned into the side of my neck as he placed soft kisses down to my cleavage and toward my nipple. He sucked it into his mouth as his hand caressed my other breast, leaving me withering beneath him. Chills running up and down my waiting body. My back arched off the bed, wanting more and he obliged. I could feel his erection on my wet core as he purposely moved his hips, grinding against my heat, creating a delicious tingling that I felt all over. 

I sucked in my bottom lip to conceal the moan that was about to escape. 

“Darlin’, I want you to make every fucking noise possible. Do you understand me?” 

I moaned in response and it earned me a forceful yet tender caress of his hand against my clit. He manipulated my bundle of nerves and within minutes my legs started to shake and I couldn’t keep my eyes open. He effortlessly made his way down my body, pushing his fingers into my opening and sucking on my nub in a back and forth motion. My hands immediately gripped his hair and he grunted in satisfaction. I couldn’t take it anymore, the room started to spin and my breathing faltered.

“Hmm… ah… mmm…” I exhaled.

The next thing I knew, he was kissing me, and I tasted myself all over his mouth. It was intoxicating as much as it was arousing. He knew my body better than I did, spending hours upon hours exploring it until he memorized every last curve. 

I heard a rustling of some sort and opened my eyes to see that he was opening a condom as he kicked off his slacks and boxer briefs. I watched with fascinated eyes as he rolled it up his big, hard cock, barely being able to contain my need for his body to once again be on top of mine. 

He kissed me again, giving me exactly what I craved and placed the tip of his dick at my opening. 

“I love you,” he whispered in between kissing me.

“I love you, too. More than anything,” I murmured, not breaking our kiss and eye contact.

When I'm With You has a COVER!!!

Hope Town #3

Release date to be determined



It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by love but not understand it. My parents, my sister, and just about everyone around us has no trouble accepting that love. To give your trust to someone else and believe they would die before hurting you. I’ve witnessed it—I’ve seen the power of it—but I’ve also seen the pain. Because for me, I’ve only loved someone I could never have, and my biggest fear is that by giving her my love, all I would do is ruin her. I should have tried harder, but I’m not sure I can because I only feel complete when I’m with her.


The only time I feel like I belong is when he’s near. His infectious smile warms me straight to my bones. Any insecurities I have vanish with just a wink from him. A sliver of his attention makes me feel invincible. But all it took was one drunken night of truths for me to lose everything I had begun to crave. Now, I’m not sure how to move on because I only feel complete when I’m with him. 

He said I was too young. I said he was perfect. He said our families wouldn’t understand. I said we could weather any storm. He said he would ruin me. And he was right.

While these are all standalone titles, I would recommend catching up with the Corps Security kids from the very beginning of this spin-off series. I really loved the Boys, but their "kids" are all grown up and have their own stories now.

Book 1, Unexpected Fate

Book 2,  Bleeding Love

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero­­the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.



Book Tour Review for Slip of the Tongue by Jessica Hawkins


Sadie Hunt isn’t perfect—but her husband is. Nathan Hunt has her coffee waiting every morning. He holds her hand until the last second. He worships the Manhattan sidewalk she walks on. Until one day, he just…stops. And Sadie finds herself in the last place she ever expected to be. Lonely in her marriage.

When rugged and sexy Finn Cohen moves into the apartment across the hall, he and Sadie share an immediate spark. Finn reveals dreams for a different life. Sadie wants to save her marriage. Their secrets should keep them apart, not ignite a blistering affair. But while Sadie’s marriage runs colder by the day, she and Finn burn hotter.

Her husband doesn’t want her anymore. The man next door would give up everything to have her.

◆     ◆     ◆     ◆     ◆     ◆     

"You can close off your heart, but don't forget--I know how to tear you open."

Classic Jessica Hawkins angst......testing the theory of fate. Epic.

I love Jessica Hawkins' brand of angst. She has been a favorite of mine ever since I read The Cityscape Series in 2013. Her stories take me for a ride every time. Each book, I am faced with a "what would you do" scenario and she always makes sure that when you read her books, you're forced to question the moral side of things. Every scenario has another This one was no different. It made me think quite a bit and I was able to put myself into the storyline emotionally, while trying to read with a rational mind. Trying.

And that is what I love about her stories.

This was a single POV book so I was only able to see Sadie's side while "feeling" her emotions through her actions and thoughts, all the while seeing her mind wander about what could be going on with her husband. Guilt and anger manifesting itself as accusations and misunderstandings. I was trying to piece together this story in my mind and it was very fascinating. The plot twists and the eye opening moments had me dropping my jaw!!! Like, shake your head, put down your kindle and look out and say "What the....?" I never EVER saw these things coming and I LOVED it!!! SO good!!

I think my favorite part about this book was that it made ME hypothetically question my OWN reality. It was NUTS!! In this story, something so seemingly perfect had some deep rooted problems and the miscommunication had serious implications. Things you take for granted, things you take for the norm. It was so head-shakingly good. Seriously.

Watching it all unfold was riveting. I couldn't put the book down and kept chatting about it with my girlfriends. They don't read....but really wanted to know what happened and how the story ended. Trying to explain it had me jumping was very definitely a passionate discussion and interesting to see who sided with who in this story.

This book started a little different for me. It's hard to explain but it almost felt stilted. However, after reading farther into the story, I realized it was just Sadie's feelings and it was setting the tone perfectly for the way the book played out. I think the ending was wrapped up in a pretty little bow, but almost a little too perfectly and quickly.

I loved the way Jessica painted each character and the way she confused me emotion-wise. I found myself switching teams a few times while reading this book, and that made me shake my head. #TeamNate or #TeamFinn??? I was so conflicted and I loved feeling the pull from side to side! I love reading forbidden loves.....triangles are my favorite because they make you look at all sides of the story. I'm still thinking about this story the day after I read it. I just shake my head because this one was NOT cut and dry for me!

Nathan's character had serious depth to him, and the reality of his love, and truth behind it, was awe inspiring. His character was so perfect and so well drawn out. He is the man dreams are modeled after...

Finn was the frosting on the cake and never before has two single words ever sounded so effing sexy. He said something to her when they first met and when the realization hits.....swoon. So in love. You need to read this book and meet him. He is.....delicious. Tempting. Forbidden. Yummy. Sinful. <giggle>

"This isn't a beginning or an end. It's just where we are."

Jessica Hawkins grew up between the purple mountains and under the endless sun of Palm Springs, California.

She studied international business at Arizona State University and has also lived in Costa Rica and New York City. To her, the most intriguing fiction is forbidden, and that's what you'll find in her stories. Currently, she resides wherever her head lands, which is often the unexpected (but warm) keyboard of her trusty MacBook.



I love all things Jessica....I have since I met her in October 2013 and I have loved every book she has written. I cannot suggest enough that you read The Cityscape Series and her Night Fever Series.

Book Tour Review for RoomHate by Penelope Ward

by Penelope Ward

From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right? 

Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.

When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.

The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.

The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.

I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.

The worst part? He didn’t come alone.

I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection. 

The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.

Author's note – RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

◆     ◆     ◆     ◆     ◆     ◆     

"Trying to hate you is exhausting."

<sigh> This is the third book of Penelope's that I have read and this one is my favorite so far....easily. I really connected effortlessly to the characters and was able to jump right into the story and enjoy it. I read only a tiny bit the first night, but then devoured it all the next day. This was one of those stories that you are pretty much sucked into and stuck in one place while you read it. I didn't want to put it down! I love the kinds of stories that you can get settled into and the outside world just disappears...this was that kind of book.

When we get to 'meet' Justin, he is a pure jerk. The situation Amelia and Justin were put in was pretty original and I really liked the way it all played out. I have to say, Penelope worked the angle so perfectly to make you want to keep reading and find out what was behind his hatred for Amelia, and it hooked me immediately. I will say that this book had me giggling and swooning for him by the end, though, which I thought was going to be a feat. I loved the point of view and the way it was told....seriously, this was my favorite of hers.

Justin has such a sarcastic but overly caring and emotional side that was amazing to discover I read the book. So well written...and the side that I loved the most (besides the sarcastic smartass) was the depth to Justin's character. Penelope added so much to his character that allowed us to explore the many layers that made up his personality. He was deep....and real.....and true. I loved him. He is most definitely Book Boyfriend Material. And by the way, he has a naughty naughty mouth. 

This book was SO fun to read!!!! I'm still smiling thinking about it. The banter. The wittiness. The storyline. The true to life fears and actions were easily read and understood. Overall, this was a great read! Easily and happily recommended!!!

Go HERE for a chance to win a copy!!!

Copyright © 2016 by Penelope Ward
ROOMHATE releases February 15th

My heart felt like it was pounding out of my chest. Watching this whole thing unfold had made me totally lose sense of reality. I felt like I’d been experiencing every movement, every feeling right along with him, except I wasn’t allowed to come. It was as if I’d seriously lost my mind in the process. That was the only thing that could possibly explain why my body decided to betray me, letting out an involuntary sigh….moan? I wasn’t sure and couldn’t even tell you what it was except to say whatever sound I made caused Justin to jump back. His head whipped toward me, and his shocked eyes met mine for a brief second before I ran back down the stairs.



My heart felt like it was in my mouth. Escaping out the front door and down to the water, I continued to run aimlessly on the sand. At one point, about a mile down the beach, it became necessary to stop and catch my breath, even though I wanted to keep running. I’d gotten so wrapped up in Justin that I’d forgotten how sick I was this afternoon. It was all hitting me again as I stumbled over to the shoreline and vomited into the ocean.

I collapsed into the sand and must have sat there for over an hour. The sun was starting to go down, and the tide was coming in. It felt like everything was closing in on me. I knew I couldn’t avoid going home forever.

What if he told Jade what I’d done?

That I was watching him.

Oh God.

He was going to crucify me for this.

What excuse could I possibly give him that would explain why I was hiding behind his door, watching him ejaculate like it was a Fourth of July fireworks performance?

I decided that I needed to get home before Jade did. Maybe I could convince him not to say anything. Brushing the sand off my thighs, I made my way back over to the house.

My heart nearly stopped upon finding Justin standing in the kitchen, drinking out of a half-gallon of orange juice. I stood silently behind him and watched as he put the container back.

Justin turned around and finally noticed me standing there. His hair was wet, making it appear brown instead of blonde. He must have taken a shower to wash away the awkwardness of our encounter. Looking painfully handsome in a brown distressed t-shirt that fit his chest like a glove, he just stared me down.

Here it comes.

I braced myself for his humiliating words. My heart was beating out of my chest as he just continued to look at me blankly without saying anything. He slowly walked toward me, and all of the muscles in my body tightened. He was going to get in my face and do it.
