Now I’m targeted by jealous girls, guys that compete to be the first to “break the prude”, and by him. After one kiss, the king of the school hunts me down like I’m a conquest to win. He’ll have to fight harder than that, because I’m no one’s trophy.

One case of mistaken identity and a hasty kiss turned my world upside down.

I’ll make her say yes. She’ll be screaming it before I’m finished breaking her

She believes sometimes the villain should get the girl and is a sucker for a deliciously devilish antihero. Veronica Eden is the pen name of romance author Mara Townsend. When not writing, she can be found soaking up sunshine at the beach, snuggling in a pile with her untamed pack of animals (her husband, dog and cat), and surrounding herself with as many plants as she can get her hands on.

Elaine

I love my job, I love my house, and I love my cat. What else do I need out of life? Hmmm…maybe the hot new IT guy from work. Those dimples…And don’t get me started on his forearms.

But he’s way too young. Plus, office romance is never a good idea. Besides, my relationship track record is pitiful and the last thing I
need is to get my heart broken again. So Simon Walker can take his charm, his
Star
Wars
sheets, and his genius IQ and sweet talk some sweet young thing. 

Simon

Elaine Madigan is easily the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met. Hilarious. Sexy. Smart. And unfortunately, she’s also convinced herself
that I’m way too young for, so she’s friend-zoned me. 

Somehow I need to show her how grown up I really am. I need her to see that I’m ready to settle down–with her. It’s no easy task, but that
doesn’t scare me. After all, I’m a techie, and cracking codes is what I do. No matter what it takes, I’ll hack the code to her heart. 

The IT Guy by Andi Burns is a dual POV standalone work romance with a younger hero, office hijinks, lots of laughs, and plenty of
steam.

Synopsis

Blaire Calloway has planned every Instagram-worthy moment of her cupcake and cocktails shop launch down to the tiniest detail. What she didn’t plan on? Ronan Knight and his old-school sports bar next door opening on the very same day. He may be super swoony, but Blaire hasn’t spent years obsessing over buttercream and bourbon to have him ruin her chance at success.

From ax throwing (his place) to frosting contests (hers), Blaire and Ronan are constantly trying to one-up each other in a battle to win new customers. But with every clash, there’s also an undeniable chemistry. When an even bigger threat to their business comes to town, they’re forced to call a temporary time-out on their own war and work together. And the more time Blaire spends getting to know the real Ronan, the more she wonders if it’s possible to have her cupcake and eat it too.

At a party with friends, after a couple of body shots and a risqué game of Truth or Dare, lines are crossed between me and a long-time friend.

I dare you to touch me.
Where?
Your choice.

She’s anti-relationships, and because I’m newly single, she believes she’s just a rebound. So, per her request, we’re traversing a friends-with-benefits situation and keeping it a secret so things don’t become awkward for everyone when this dies off.

A short-lived fling is all she’s expecting, but here’s a truth for you…

I never intended for this to be just a fling. And now it’s time to prove to her that we’re meant for each other. We always have been.

Blurb:
Dangerous and feared.

Those words describe my future husband. Who just so happens to also be my ex-boyfriend.

It’s complicated. Two years ago, he broke my heart when he left me to do his father’s bidding. After months of crying, I finally accepted he was gone and wasn’t going to look back. That maybe he’d never loved me at all. I never wanted to see Luca again.

Now a cruel twist of fate has signed me over to him in a heartless deal. I’m his. He thinks he did me a favor, but I feel like I’ve been given a death sentence. He doesn’t want to get married because he still loves me. No, he did it for money. More power.

I’m going to be a mafia wife. And there’s only one way out of it. Death.

But as it turns out, someone else doesn’t want me to marry the ruthless Luca Bianchi. And if he has his way, I’ll see that early grave.

unnamed

4.75 Stars!

Well this was a nice surprise from Shantel!

Ok I’m ready and have my hands out like a baby who wants a toy….gimme gimme. You’ll understand why when you read this book and be introduced to some exciting new characters. Yes please!

First I love the cover. It’s simple yet says so much about the story. Code of Silence is a brand new standalone from best selling author Shantel Tessier. It’s told from dual POV’S and follows Luca and Haven. Mafia stories have always been a weakness of mine. I’m intrigued by them and can’t seem to get enough. Bring it baby, bring it!

Luca is the son of John Bianchi(the Don—the ringleader of the Italian-American Mafia). Growing up Luca knew what was in store for his life. A life of crime, danger and murder all in the name of family. But one spot that is truly his and not the family’s is Haven, the girl who he’s noticed since they were little. Finally making her his while they are in college, he’s fallen in love. But soon Luca knows that his happiness is going to be put on hold. He has a decision to make and knows it will destroy Haven.

Haven has grown up with ties to the mafia through her family. Her father is an businessman that has become “friendly” with the Biachi’s. She’s loved Luca for years, but she knows that loving him will destroy her life. However she can’t stop it. Once your heart falls, lines blur on what’s right and wrong. She can’t leave him now even though she should. Love does that too you. In the end Haven knows what’s in store for her if she stays. But will her love for Luca be her death sentence?

And then we have the Dark Kings. Bones, Titan, Cross and Grave. Boys who turn into men who are going to take over the world as their fathers have done. We meet them all but they are still a mystery as we just get enough tidbits to entice us. I can’t wait!!

Oh my Nite….enough said. Gimme gimme gimme!

I am Luca Bianchi, and I always get what I want. Even if I have to lie, cheat, or steal for it. She will be my wife and the mother of my children.

Okay fast forward four years and the story starts off with a bang. Luca is back and is determined to make Haven his again. He’ll do whatever is necessary to make her see him again. Marry her and make her his in front of God, family, friends and the world. He loves her and knows that she still loves him, even if she hates him right now.

He’s back and thinks she’ll fall to her knees in joy. Nope, Haven was broken-hearted when Luca left. He destroyed her and she felt betrayed. In her mind everything felt like it was a lie. Or at least she thought it was as some secrets unfold and she learns the truth. Will Haven forgive Luca? Can she live this life?

Code of Silence was fast paced and secrets unfold left and right. When I reached the end, I wanted more. More, more, more! Shantel has a way of getting her nails dug into you and not letting go. Her talent just continues to amaze me as she comes up with such exciting and engaging stories. She can write in multiple genres and she just keeps getting better and better. I love that she branched out into the mafia world and took that chance. I’m trying so hard not to give things away. Grab this book, seriously grab it!

Blurb:
Welcome to their kingdom

Cole Covington is the most popular heartbreaker at school.

Every guy wants to be him and every girl wants to screw him.

Except me.

His devastatingly good looks, golden arm, and flirty smiles don’t do it for me anymore…because I know what’s lurking underneath the star quarterback’s gorgeous armor.

At least I thought I did.

Sometimes the most beautiful people…hide the ugliest truths.

And sometimes the only way to save someone…

is to walk beside them through hell.

Sawyer Church is the bible-thumping nerd of Royal Hearts Academy.

Girls pick on her and guys don’t notice her.

Except me.

Sweet, curvy, and sarcastic, she’s impossible to ignore.

No matter how much I try.

Everyone at school has her pegged as the chubby, Jesus loving geek, but unlike them—Sawyer’s real and never pretends to be someone she’s not.

Until I ask her to be my fake girlfriend.

Sometimes the most beautiful souls…hide the greatest pain.

And sometimes the only way to save someone…

is to fight for them.

 

Excerpt:

I open my mouth to speak, but Bianca beats me to it.
“In Cole’s defense, he told me not to hook up with any guys. He never said anything about girls, though.” Smirking, she adds, “Plus, it’s not like he was there. He was too busy hanging out with his new girlfriend, Sawyer.”
On second thought, maybe locking her up in the basement isn’t such a bad idea after all. There would be way less shit for her to stir up from down there.
I can tell the exact moment Jace processes what she said because the little vein in his forehead makes an appearance. “Sawyer? As in Dylan’s best friend, Sawyer?”
“Do you know any other Sawyers?”
“I told you to stay away from her.”
“You also told me not to fuck Mrs. Bennett, but she ended up giving me an A in history.”
“Holy shit. You fucked Cortland’s mom?” Bianca exclaims.
We both ignore her.
“Look,” Jace starts. “Dylan doesn’t want you hanging around Sawyer. Not after what you did to her.”
“I’m sorry, last I checked, I’m a big boy and Dylan doesn’t get to make decisions for me.”
“Yeah,” Bianca cheers.
Jace’s gaze swings her way. “Go upstairs.”
“Whatever.” She fixes her stare on Oakley. “I’m gonna call *** and see if she wants to hang out.”
Oakley makes a low growling sound as she scampers away. When she’s out of earshot, he says, “***** is a sweet girl, Jace. You need to put an end to that shit.”
Huffing out a breath, Jace motions to me. “Yeah, after I put out the other fire.”
“Me dating Sawyer isn’t a fire.”

It’s a motherfucking atomic bomb.

Cover Reveal: Fake It Til You Break It by Meagan Brandy

🔥🔥 COVER REVEAL 🔥🔥

 

FAKE IT ‘TIL YOU BREAK IT by Meagan Brandy – Releasing: February 5th

 

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author Meagan Brandy comes a new standalone, fake relationship romance with a twist! 

Fake.

That’s what we are.

That’s what we agreed to be.

I thought it would be harder, convincing everyone our school’s star receiver was mine and mine alone, but we played our parts well.

So well, the lines between us began to blur until they disappeared completely.

The thing about pretending, though, someone’s always better at it, and by the time I realized my mistake, there was no going back.

I fell for our lie.

And then everything fell apart.

It turned out, he and I were never playing the same game. 

He didn’t have to break me to win. 

But he did it anyway.

Author Bio
A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories. 
A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.
Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.
When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

EXCERPT

(unedited and subject to change)

“What are you thinking?”

“Nothing.” He shakes his head and reaches out, placing a hand on my waist. His touch is gentle as he tugs me closer until I stand between the halo of his arms. With his other hand he cups the right side of my cheek. “Why do you feel like a dream?”

“A dream? I’m more like a nightmare.”

He tosses his head back, his Adam’s apple bobbing with laughter.

When he stops, his teeth dig into his bottom lip while his eyes bore into me. He looks like he wants to say something, but holds the words inside.

Tell me, Lachlan, I silently beg. Give me all your thoughts, your words, your fears, dreams and ambitions. Give it all to me. I’ll cherish it, I promise.

He swallows and instead takes my hand, tugging me into the living room.

Zeppelin lifts his mighty head, watching us from the floor as Lachlan sinks onto the couch and pulls me down with him, fitting my small frame between his legs so I collapse on top of him with my front to his. The dog settles back down, clearly used to my presence now.

I cross my hands on his chest and rest my chin on them. Blinking up at him I wait for him to do or say something. He stares right back at me. I wonder what he sees when he looks at me.

Do I look as broken as I feel most of the time? Does he see the hopelessness beginning to fade from my eyes? Is it plastered all over my face how fucking enamored I am with him?

“You know,” he begins, clearing his throat, “when I figured you’d show up yesterday, I told myself to tell you that you had to go back home, that you couldn’t be here with me. But then, I opened the door and saw you. All those words … they no longer existed. When it comes to you, I’m incapable of common sense. I don’t understand it, but I think … I think I’m tired of fighting. I think about you when I shouldn’t, I have dreams of you that are immoral, I worry about you, I wonder what you’re thinking, and more than anything I want to make everything better for you and I’m so fucking torn up inside because I’m terrified I never can.”

He rubs his thumb over my cheek. I’m not even sure he realizes he’s doing it.

“You already are.”

His blue eyes lighten at the same time he smiles—and that smile?

It’s like a brand across my heart, a fiery piercing feeling as he signs his name across it in ownership.

He doesn’t even realize it, but it belongs to him.
