Never Gonna Tell
By His Game #3
by
Emma Hart


Release Date: April 13th 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Four people. Four goals. Four endings.

In the third and final book of the USA Today bestselling By His Game series, the rules of the game no one knew they'd have to play are blurring, and when the past becomes the opposing team, hearts aren't the only thing at stake of being lost...

Finding naked pictures of her best friend on her boyfriend's phone wasn't in Everleigh White's five year plan. Neither was moving back to Los Angeles, the city of dreams that never managed to make hers come true. There's only so many years you can be in love with your best friend before you realize he's never going to love you back, after all. If only her ex would stop showing up at the gym where she works, she'd be much happier.

Being a father at nineteen wasn't how Reid North, the Vipers' wide receiver, imagined his life going, but when his ex-girlfriend tricked him into parenthood, he accepted it. Eventually. Now, with his ex on the verge of being released from prison, he's holding onto full custody of his seven year old son, Leo. Football and Leo have left Reid no time for dating... Until Everleigh comes back.

His best friend his whole life, Everleigh never knew Reid loved her. She left before he could tell her. Now she's back in front of him, and he's not letting go. Even if all he gets is her friendship again. But in a city like L.A., dreams come true when you're least expecting it.

So do nightmares.

With their exes beating down their doors with demands and explanations, their hesitant and building relationship is threatened at every corner. They're at serious risk of being intercepted by the past, and that’s a ball Reid is determined to catch.

Except desperation can lead to stupidity — and Reid soon realizes he can't catch every ball, no matter how perfectly it's thrown to him. This time a fumble could cost more than a few points.

It could cost him everything.


(INTERCEPTED is the third and final book in the By His Game series and can be read as a standalone, although it is advised to read BLINDSIDED and SIDELINED before, in this order.)

✿ Excerpt ✿


"Why'd you leave, Ev?" I ask her quietly, sitting forward. "Why didn't you tell me? Why'd you ignore me?"

"I didn't want to," she whispers. "But I had to. It was easier for me."

"Not for me!"

"I know!" Her eyes snap to mine and she twists her whole body to face me. "But I couldn't say goodbye to you, Reid. It would have hurt me too much to do that. And it was pathetic and childish, but there. It was easier to run without thinking of you as long as it meant I didn't hurt even more."

Stupid, stupid girl.

I reach over and rest my hand against the side of her face. Tears are shining in her bright-blue eyes, making them gleam even more brightly. When one drips over her lower lid and onto her cheek, I catch it with my thumb and wipe it away.

I move along the sofa, closing the distance between our bodies, and pull her face toward me. "Don't cry, Ev," I whisper just before I lean in and cover her mouth with mine.

She draws a breath in through her nose, but she doesn't push me away. She wraps her hand around my wrist at the side of her face and moves in toward the kiss.

Her lips are soft and sweet, and if the way I'm kissing her is half as tender as she feels, then dammit, I'm fucking screwed.

"I didn't hate you for leaving," I say in a low voice, threading my fingers into her long hair. "I didn't hate you at all. I was fucking mad because you left before I could do that."








✿ The Series ✿




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.

Sidelined
By His Game #2





✾ 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.


(SIDELINED is a full-length, standalone novel. It's not necessary to read BLINDSIDED before this book, but it is advised.)

♡ Surprise Release + Teasers ♡ Love, in Duology by Karina Halle‏ @MetalBlonde @InkSlingerpPR




Love, in Duology
by
Karina Halle‏





✾ Synopsis ✾


Love, in English

He's thirty-eight. I'm twenty-three.

He speaks Spanish. I speak English.

He lives in Spain. I live in Canada.

He dresses in thousand-dollar suits. I'm covered in tattoos.

He's married and has a five-year old daughter.

I'm single and can't commit to anyone or anything.

Until now. Because when they say you can't choose who you fall in love with, boy ain't that the f*#king truth.

***

To a restless dreamer like Vera Miles, it sounded like the experience of a lifetime. Instead of spending her summer interning for her astronomy major, she would fly to Spain where she’d spend a few weeks teaching conversational English to businessmen and women, all while enjoying free room and board at an isolated resort. But while Vera expected to get a tan, meet new people and stuff herself with wine and paella, she never expected to fall in love.

Mateo Casalles is unlike anyone Vera has ever known, let alone anyone she’s usually attracted to. While Vera is a pierced and tatted free spirit with a love for music and freedom, Mateo is a successful businessman from Madrid, all sharp suits and cocky Latino charm. Yet, as the weeks go on, the two grow increasingly close and their relationship changes from purely platonic to something... more.

Something that makes Vera feel alive for the first time.

Something that can never, ever be.

Or so she thinks


✺✺✺✺✺✺✺✺✺✺


Love, in Spanish

"She sat beside me on the bus – and she changed my whole life."

Successful, wealthy and absurdly handsome – Spanish ex-football player Mateo Casalles seemed like he had it all. A high-society wife, an adorable little girl, and flashy apartments in Madrid and Barcelona only sweetened the deal. But there was more to Mateo than met the eye – a life of uncertainty and regret that colored his black and white world.

That was until Vera Miles came into his life like a shooting star. Tattooed, wild and young, Vera seemed like Mateo's polar opposite at first. But you can't choose who you fall in love with and the two lost souls did everything they could to be together, all while suffering the grave consequences.

Now with Mateo divorced and living in Madrid with Vera, there is a whole new set of challenges and setbacks facing the couple and rocking the foundation of their star-crossed relationship.

Unfortunately for them, the brighter the star, the faster they burn.

Love So Irresistible
The Lawson Brothers #3

Release Date: April 14, 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


All former Navy SEAL Mason Lawson craves is solitude. Unfortunately, his new neighbor won't allow him the peace he so desperately needs. Between the traffic and the music, Mason is constantly on edge — not exactly what the doctor ordered for someone recovering from a bullet to the leg. However, when he finally has enough and confronts his neighbor, nothing can prepare him for how hot he'd get for the teacher next door.

Piano teacher, Skylar Jernigan, loves everything about the town of Jessamine — from the quaint Main Street shops to the people who own them. Unfortunately, once she's chewed up and spit out by her sexy neighbor, Skylar begins to question her decision to move to a new town. Until, that is, she learns he's suffering from a war wound and refuses to have anything to do with his family.

Now, Skylar is determined to help Mason recover — mentally, physically and socially — until he turns the tables and sets out to seduce Skylar right out of her meddling ways. Only seduction turns into something more and soon, Mason can't stop looking for excuses to be with her. But when the Navy wants Mason to reenlist for a dangerous mission, will Skylar be too irresistible for him to leave?

✿ Interview ✿


What inspired you to write Love at First Flight?

I've always been inspired by the tragic love story, the story of great love that just can't be. My favourite book The Bridges of Madison County stayed with me years after reading it and played on my mind. Then I read Twilight and out of nowhere I had to write my own book. Before this I had never entertained the idea of writing. But the longing in Twilight and the knowing that the one you love is the one that is dangerous for you resonated with me and I just had to write about that. So with the themes of desire and danger, I wrote a book about a married mother, because I wanted to write of what I know. I wanted to bring the great love story into the world of the typical suburban mum who is chasing after kids, working and running a home. I wanted her to have that Romeo and Juliet moment. So I wrote Love at First Flight.


Did you use real events/people from your own life as inspiration when writing Love at First Flight?

Hell yes! I really do believe you write what you know. Of course the novel is a novel, not a biography, and I credit my imagination for it, but I have definitely taken inspiration from events and people in my life.

It is no coincidence that Mel has long black hair and is a health professional who falls for a tall, dark, handsome and broody, moody physio. That's me and my husband! But the great thing about writing is that I get to make Mel as hot as I like and morph her into someone as sexy as Angelina Jolie - hey, it's my prerogative isn't it? Matt's parents are very much inspired by own mother and father in-law who lived out in the country on a sprawling property where we used to go to wind down from the city with them. Matt's sister is a powerful human rights lawyer, just like two of my world-beating cousins. I even used my children's names for characters - Tom, Lara and Lachlan. (Lara has a blink and you miss it part because I am saving her. I have big things planned for Lara in book two!)

And I incorporated many real life events into this fictional story. My husband and I tragically lost our third child Lachy at birth, my darling friend Jess committed suicide, my darling friend Julie fought a fierce battle with cancer and those stories and a few more events that shaped my life made it into the book. Writing was my counselling!

Also, I am inherently lazy so the fact that the story unfolds in Perth and Melbourne, the two cities I've lived in most of my life, is not by accident. The more you know, the less you research. Some writers thrive on research, me – not so much!


What do you hope readers will take from your book?

More than anything I want my readers to be entertained. I want them to escape whatever they are doing and join Mel and Matt in their story. I want readers to be thinking about Mel and what direction her life will take when they have to leave her to get on with their real lives, and I want them to be happy to re-unite with her again when they pick up the book. I'm not out to challenge anybody and I don't have a world-changing message for anybody. I simply want to entertain. When readers finish Love at First Flight, I would hope they are satisfied and that it captured their imagination.


Which Hollywood stars would you like to see play the lead roles in the movie version of your book?

Hugh Jackman is the ultimate Adam, Orlando Bloom (with an Aussie accent) would make a convincing Matt, Rose Byrne (with dyed black hair) has Mel written all over her. Nobody gets to make a movie though unless my daughter Lara gets to be Lily.


Pick one series and tell us why – Harry Potter, Twilight or The Hunger Games.

Twilight. Not even a competition in my mind. Edward - ugh, he kills me, he is so perfect!


Name one of your all-time favourite books?

The Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller is my all-time favourite. The intense connection between Francesca and Robert Kincaid took my breath away and still does.


What is your favourite movie that was based on a book?

Renee Zellweger made me fall in love with Bridget Jones even more so than when I read the book. Watching her squeeze into nanna sized knickers and make blue food was cinematic gold.


Tell us a random fact about yourself.

I am completely obsessed with the Real Housewives of Beverley Hills. My heart goes aflutter every time any one of them tweets anything!
