*Blog Tour + Excerpt + #Giveaway* Fighting Silence (On the Ropes #1) by Aly Martinez @AlyMartinezAuth @RSofRomance




Meet Till & Eliza in Aly Martinez's newest fighter series!


Fighting Silence
On the Ropes #1
by
Aly Martinez

Release Date: February 23rd 2015





*** Synopsis ***


Sound is an abstract concept for most people. We spend our lives blocking out the static in order to focus on what we believe is important. But what if, when the clarity fades into silence, it's the obscure background noise that you would give anything to hold on to?

I've always been a fighter. With parents who barely managed to stay out of jail and two little brothers who narrowly avoided foster care, I became skilled at dodging the punches life threw at me. Growing up, I didn’t have anything I could call my own, but from the moment I met Eliza Reynolds, she was always mine. I became utterly addicted to her and the escape from reality we provided each other. Throughout the years, she had boyfriends and I had girlfriends, but there wasn't a single night that I didn’t hear her voice.

You see, meeting the love of my life at age thirteen was never part of my plan. However, neither was gradually going deaf at the age of twenty-one.

They both happened anyway.

Now, I'm on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life.
Fighting for my career.
Fighting the impending silence.
Fighting for her.

Every night, just before falling asleep, she sighs as a final conscious breath leaves her.

I think that's the sound I'll miss the most.

*** Excerpt ***


"Hi." I stood up off the bed as he started climbing through the window.

His eyes went wide when he saw me, causing him to momentarily lose his balance on the windowsill and go crashing to the floor. "God. Damn," he cursed as he rose to his feet while taking in my new wardrobe. "You... I... um..." His hand went to his lip.

He was rooted in place only a few steps away, but his eyes traveled over every inch of my body and back again.

Till was speechless. I had never felt so empowered in my life.

"Are you okay?" I feigned concern as I slowly approached.

"Not even close," he told my breasts, making me giggle.

After sliding a hand under the edge of his T-shirt, I raked a fingernail over each of his abs before dipping it into the waistband of his jeans.

"I'm sore today," I announced, closing the distance between us. My breasts were pressed against him, but he still hadn't even attempted to touch me yet. I had plans to remedy that. I smirked then stood up on my tiptoes, kissing the base of his neck. "Make me sore for tomorrow too." At the last second, I darted my tongue out to the hollow dip at the base of his neck. It was meant to tease him, but as the taste of his skin hit my tongue, I was flooded with memories of taking more of him in my mouth. The moan escaped before I'd even felt it coming.

A loud rumble shook his chest, but that was the only warning I received. Suddenly, I was off my feet and sailing through the air. Just as I landed on the bed, Till crashed on top of me. His mouth roughly landed on mine.

"Tell me we can't do this again," he demanded as his hands found my breasts.

"We're definitely doing this again." I arched into him.

"It's gonna get so messy, Eliza. Please." He groaned as I reached into the front of his jeans.

"I'm okay with messy," I breathed, guiding his hand from my breast and into my panties.

"Fuuuuuck" he cursed when he discovered just how thorough I'd been with the razor earlier. His finger pressed inside me as his body traveled down the bed and settled between my legs, stripping my panties off during his descent.

He added another finger in a less than gentle but overwhelmingly intoxicating, rhythm.

"Tell me to stop, Eliza. We can't do this again." He grazed his teeth on the inside of my thigh.

"We're already doing it."

"Tell me to stop."

"No."

"It's going to ruin us."

"If you don't stop talking, you're going to ruin this."

"I'm serious." He kissed the inside of my other thigh, his fingers never faltering in their steady pace.

"So am I. Stop trying to talk yourself out of this while your fingers are buried inside me." I threaded a hand into his hair and gave it a gentle tug.

"Goddammit. Tell me to stop!" he demanded one last time, but his fingers sped before twisting in the most delicious way.

I decided to give him what he wanted, but only because I knew he wouldn't follow through.

"Stop." I rolled my hips forcing him even deeper.

"Well, it's too fucking late now."

I would have laughed, but his mouth sealed over my clit and stole my breath, words, thoughts, and orgasm. My body shook as he pushed me higher even while I was falling. It shouldn't have worked like that, but whatever voodoo magic Till Page was working with that night was all right with me. He didn’t stop swirling his tongue until I used his hair to pry his mouth away.

"Too much!" I cried.

He looked up with a wickedly proud grin. His hand disappeared, and seconds later, his cock replaced it.

Grayson Ford and Emma Kinglsey - close since they were kids, opposites in every way. He's the stuff high school crushes are made of, Mister Popular, and captain of every team.

*** Review ***





This is the first book written by Cristin Harber that I read and now I'm hooked!

Only for Him gives us Grayson Ford and Emma Kingsley. They've been best friends since they were little and now it seems that their crossing the line from best friends to boyfriend/girlfriend. But Gray's secrets are keeping him from accepting the happiness that his relationship with Emma brings him.

This book is great. The storyline is fantastic and very well written. It keeps the reader hooked from the first page and takes the reader in a rollercoaster ride of emotions. And the cliffhanger? I can't wait to read Only for Her!!!

Love Grayson. He was very hard on himself for something that happened in his past and when times are rough he thinks of Emma, his saviour and the only girl he wants. He is a damaged boy but he hides it very well under a happy all star boy facade.
Emma has been in love with Grayson since she was a little girl. She is very kind and sweet but she also knows what she wants.

Cristin Harber wrote an amazing story with great characters. Can't wait to read the other books in this series and her other books!

*Teaser Tuesday* Stealing Rose (The Fowler Sisters #2) by Monica Murphy @msmonicamurphy @wordsmithpublic #StealingRose #TeaserTuesday



*** Teaser ***







Stealing Rose
The Fowler Sisters #2
by
Monica Murphy

Release Date: March 3rd 2015





*** Synopsis ***


People say the youngest child has it easy, but nothing can be further from the truth. Unlike my two sisters, Violet and Lily, I'm never in the limelight. I just work my butt off for Fleur Cosmetics and get little to no thanks for it. I’ve been pushed too far one too many times, and I'm finally brave enough to do something about it.

Maybe my newfound courage has something to do with the amazing pink and white diamond necklace I wear to the party in Cannes. The instant those dazzling heirloom jewels touch my skin, they excite some deep, aching need inside. And when that guy — that totally gorgeous guy — locks eyes with me, I know this nice girl is going to be naughty.

For once it’s my turn. My turn to say no to my father, to outshine my sisters, to walk away from it all — straight into the arms of a mysterious stranger. But what if Caden is much more than I bargained for? Sure, he makes me feel sexy and free in a way I never have before, but there’s something else I can’t quite place — something dangerous. Maybe our "chance" meeting wasn't so random. Maybe he was looking for me for a reason. Whatever his motive, there's no going back now.

And maybe I don't want to.
