*Blog Tour + Excerpt + #Giveaway* Caught Up In You by Colee Firman @ColeeFirman @InkSlingerPR




Caught Up In You
by
Colee Firman





*** Synopsis ***


Life has a way of shaping you into what it wants you to be, regardless of how much you fight it.

Brantley Prescott is damaged. Scarred by a past she can't forget. Hiding secrets she's terrified to share. Searching for a future she doesn't believe she'll ever find.

Myles Franco is alone. Burdened by mistakes he'll never live down. Fostering a deep resentment for the opposite sex. Unleashing his wrath on any girl who gets too close.

Brantley has worked behind the bar long enough to recognize Myles for what he is — a douchebag player with nothing on his mind but keeping a steady stream of girls flowing through his bed. With his messy dark hair, sapphire blue eyes, rock-solid body, and endless tattoos he's impossible to ignore. But that's exactly what she plans on doing.

After just one run-in with Brantley, Myles is even more determined to stick to the rules he lives by. She's mouthy, blunt, and doesn't back down — no matter how hard he pushes her. She could turn out be the one temptation that drags him down the path he's been trying to avoid. He won't let that happen.

Both are content living behind the solid walls they've built around themselves. Neither is prepared for what happens when their lives collide.

Due to sexual content and graphic language - 17+ recommended.

*** Excerpt ***


"Hey neighbor..." Brantley put her hand on the table and pushed off, standing up in front of me. "I thought you were goddamn pissed off at me?"

"I am..." I reached out, brushing a piece of hair back from her face and watched as her cheeks got even pinker. I loved that I could do that to her.

Brantley put her hands on her hips. "I'm pretty sure we filled our daily quarrel quota earlier."

"It's after midnight so that was actually yesterday," I said, fighting with my eyes to keep them from moving to the perfect view I had of her cleavage.

"I'm surprised it's been that long," she said, smirking at me. "The sound of your apartment door slamming is still ringing in my ears."

Kyle leaned forward and caught her eye, making her look away from me. "I'd never slam the door in your face, Brant."

That was my tipping point. She was getting the fuck away from that asshat or I was gonna end up in jail. I leaned down close to her ear, purposely letting my lips brush against it as I whispered. "Why don't you go grab us a couple of drinks and we can get our quarrel for today out of the way."

Brantley turned her head just enough so as I moved away her cheek brushed against my lips. I heard her breath catch as she exhaled. I'd been fairly confident she wouldn't say no, but the seconds ticking by as I waited for her response had me worried suddenly. If I'd been such a prick earlier that I'd fucked things up for good, I didn't know what I was going to do.

"Why not," she finally said, moving closer to scoot around me. "Find us somewhere to duke it out and I'll go grab some anger-fuel."

The entire front of her body dragged across mine as she maneuvered to get past me in the crowded bar. She just kept moving as if having no idea how being so close to her affected me. Maybe that's why it was such a turn on.

The urge to punch out Kyle resurfaced when I caught him staring at Brantley as she walked away. My reasons for not ramming my boot through his head were starting to seem weak. I stood trying to figure out how many hits I could get on him before the guys jumped in while I waited for him to peel his eyes off her ass.

When Kyle finally turned back and realized he had my full attention, he held his hands up and leaned back in his chair. "I get it — hands, eyes, whatever else off..."

"Don't fucking forget it." I walked away feeling like an asshole for being so possessive of a girl who wasn't even mine. That's what she did to me though. She had me completely hooked and I had to do something about it before things got out of hand.

*** Excerpt ***


Old dock boards creak beneath my shoes, but Sam doesn't turn back. He won’t even look at me when I sit down next to him and hang my feet over the lapping water. He holds a half-empty bottle of whiskey in one hand. My worry only increases when I touch his arm, and he pulls away.

"Sam..." I start.

"You know, don'’t you?" he says flatly. "Kelly told you."

I shake my head. "I know something happened, something happened to you."

Sam takes a too-long drink and then corrects me, "I made something happen."

I touch his arm again, and this time, he lets me.

"I'm going to tell you because you'll find out anyway. That's inevitable even though I pretended it wasn't. Then, you're going to hate me, the way most people in this town do."

"Sam, I could never hate you."

"Yes, you will."

Now, he angles his face, and I can see how pained his expression is.

"For about ten minutes, I got to feel good again, good with you, and that's going to end. Of course. And I can't fucking stand that, Stella, because you are a relief in this fucking insane world. I felt it the second I saw you, and it scared the hell out of me. But it was there, as clear as day."

His eyes are red, and I'm not convinced it's from the booze.

"For reasons I can't begin to understand, I am whole again with you. After everything, I get to feel whole. And now, it's all going to blow up. Another bomb detonating in my life." He laughs, but it's filled with anguish. "My fucking life."

*Promo Week + Excerpt* Sidelined (By His Game #2) by Emma Hart @EmmaHartAuthor @InkSlingerPR




Sidelined
By His Game #2
by
Emma Hart

Release Date: March 2nd 2015





*** Synopsis ***


Three people. Three motives. Three reasons.

When the game leaves the field in the second book in the USA Today bestselling BY HIS GAME series and mixes with sex, lies, and betrayal, the future isn't the only thing on the line...


Macey Kelly has sworn off men. Unless they're going to zip in and out of her apartment — and her vagina — quicker than they can give her an orgasm, she's not interested. Finding out her boyfriend of three years got her cousin pregnant was a total confidence knock. Luckily for Macey, confidence is something she has in abundance, so all Mitch's asshole move did was make her pretty cynical toward men.

The last thing Jack Carr needs at the start of the season is for a dark-haired, sexy as sin, gyspyesque beauty to be consuming his thoughts. Football is his life, which leaves no time for girls. Unless they're the love 'em and leave 'em girls. Becoming one of the best running backs the league has ever seen by racking up the yards is his top priority... not bedding Macey Kelly, despite her affinity for blow jobs and total sexual abandon.

Avoiding each other is the perfect solution, but when your best friends are in a serious living together kind of relationship, that isn't always an option. Sometimes, sex on tap is the easiest option. And the sweetest.

Until Mitch shows up with a bombshell that could shatter Macey's perfectly carved out life. It's been a year, but he isn't giving her up, not now he has a chance at winning her back. And he knows her buttons. Every single one of them.

Unfortunately for him, Jack Carr isn't a loser. The star running back has his eye on the Vince Lombardi — and on Macey. But seeing her hanging between them both isn't something he's down with, not when he discovers why she's so against anything more-ish, as she puts it. Macey quickly realizes she's the ball being passed between two desperate yet opposing teams, and that only one of them can score the touchdown. But will the winner be the guy she lived with and loved for three years, or will the winner be the guy who understands her and makes her body come alive?

In this game, someone will be sidelined, and calling the play isn’t always as easy as it seems.

*** Excerpt ***


"You remember to write down the orange juice one?"

"No, actually. I forgot."

He licks his fingers and comes over. I kick a little more frantically, because, well, explaining them is going to be awkward. Jack grabs my pen and the orange pad and scribbles on it.

Note to self: Get a second carton of OJ for Jack.

"Noted." I pull the square off the pad and drop it on the floor with the others.

"Why is my name on the pink notes?"

Ah, fuck.

"And Mitch's on the yellow?" He turns toward me. His face is dangerously close to mine, and there's a glint in his eyes that... Well, I don't know what it is, but it sure as fuck isn't good.

"I was... drawing up a pros-and-cons list," I mutter.

"Seems to be a helluva lot more yellow than pink, baby."

"Well, in my defense, half of Mitch's say 'fucked my cousin,' which adds to his total." I smile weakly.

"All right, I think I'm gonna regret askin' this." Jack sits up straight. "Why are you making pros-and-cons lists?"

I open my mouth and close it again. Shit. I was kind of hoping to avoid this conversation.

"Promise you won't get mad," I say softly, looking down.

"M, talk to me."

"I..." I swallow, sensing that that's the closest to an agreement I'm going to get. "I saw Mitch earlier."

I wait, but Jack says silent.

"I asked him why he was outside my apartment yesterday."

"Doesn't take a fuckin' genius to work it out," Jack grinds out.

"He wants me back." I look at the TV. "He... doesn't seem to understand that I'm not in love with him."

"You sure about that, Macey?"

I frown, snapping my eyes to Jack, who's now leaning against the table. "Of course I'm sure!"

"Yeah? 'Cause you don't seem to hesitate running to him when he comes knockin' at your door."

"What are you saying?" I stand up slowly, my stomach twisting at his words and the implications of them.

"According to you, he broke your heart so fucking badly that you hate him. Yet, when he knocks at your door or hangs out outside your apartment, you're not exactly hesitant when it comes to runnin' after him to see what the fuck he wants. Yet you can't call me." Jack turns slowly. "That's what I'm fuckin' saying."

"According to me?" The words fall from me in disbelief. "According to me? You think I want him here, fucking with me again? You think I want to sit there and listen to him declare his seemingly endless love for me while begging me in the same breath to give him another goddamn chance?"

Jack pushes off from the table and walks to the door. His fingers curl around the handle and he looks at me, his green eyes on fire, so angry that they’re sending tremors through my body. "You answer him?"

"What?"

"He begged for another chance. Did. You. Fucking. Answer. Him?"

Blindsided
By His Game #1





*** Synopsis ***


From Emma Hart, the New York Times bestselling author of The Game series, comes a brand new series where the game is realer, the tension is tighter, the sex is hotter, and the stakes are the highest of all...


Two people. Two agendas. Two games.

What happens when the out-there It-Boy of football meets the secret It-Girl of fashion?

As the daughter of Hollywood's sweetheart, Leah Veronica can't even buy a coffee without finding her face on a magazine stand, so it's no wonder she's launching her first fashion line in secret. With it debuting at New York Fashion Week in just under a month, extra time in the spotlight is the last thing she needs.

The son of the best quarterback the league has ever seen, filling legendary shoes as the L.A. Vipers' quarterback was inevitable for Corey Jackson. So was meeting Leah Veronica — the first girl to hand him his ass without putting a hair out of place.

Getting the handsome, prickly blonde into his bed becomes his number one goal. But getting the sexy, over-confident footballer the hell away from her becomes Leah's — at least until she realizes the best way to do that is to give him what he wants.

If only it was that simple.

When Corey discovers who she is, and private photos of Hollywood's finest find their way online, everything they thought they knew is thrown into disarray.

And when secrets are exposed and hearts are shattered, they have to figure out if they've been blindsided by love or reality, and if it's worth running the extra yard to win the game they never meant to play.
