✿ Excerpt ✿


I sit up when I see a few bikes in the distance. I don't recognize their patches, but that doesn’t surprise me. Tennessee has a huge MC community, and there are always new clubs popping up all over the state. I slow down as I close the distance between us.

The closer I get, the more details I can make out. The group of about five bikes in front of me are all Harleys, all ranging in colors from almost purple to black. None of the men are wearing helmets, which is the complete opposite of me, who is covered from head to toe in black leather. Even my helmet is all black, with leather piping.

I take the men in, noticing they are all well-built, their leather cuts displaying a large eagle, with its wings spread wide like it's midflight. The talons of the bird are carrying a long stem rose, with petals falling off it onto their club name, The Broken Eagles. I begin to speed up and pass them one by one, thankful for the security of my helmet, the black visor making it impossible to see me.

I keep my head straight until the last guy, the one who is at the front of the group, catches my attention. From the back, his hair is the first thing I notice. It's slightly long on top and buzzed on the sides. My eyes move to the expanse of his back, the wide set of his shoulders, and the tan skin covering his lean muscles. His bike is low to the ground, and the bars are in front of him in a way that he has to stretch his arms straight out, causing every muscle to flex and move, making it look like the tattoos are alive and dancing.

My eyes skim farther down over his chest, which is covered in a white tank top tucked into a pair of light jeans, and around his waist is a black belt with a large silver buckle. I continue to pass him, my eyes shifting from the road to him and back again. This time when I look over, his head is turned towards me, and if I didn’t know any better, I would have swear he is looking directly into my soul.

"Holy shit," I whisper, taking in his hair, the set of his jaw that is covered in days of stubble, and a pair of light eyes I can't quite make out through the tint of my helmet. He is seriously hot, but equally scary-looking. I look from him back to the road. It must not have been even a second, but when my eyes go to the asphalt in front of me, I see a bird that is trying to make its way across the road, its wing hanging in an awkward position. I swerve to the right just in time to miss the poor animal.

"What the fuck?" I hear roared, and I look over my shoulder at the man who is now coming up quick on my right side. I yell an apology over the sound of my engine and his pipes. Do a quick wave and take off, lowering my body and pulling back the throttle, wanting to get away from them. Dude looks seriously pissed off, and even though I hate leaving the bird behind without helping it, I would like to live to see my next birthday.

I think I'm in the clear, but then the sound of pipes fills my ears, and I don't even know how it happens, but they all catch up with me, surrounding my bike. I can't make out what they're saying, but my stomach starts to roll at the sound of their voices. I feel my side to make sure I have the Taser my dad insisted I carry.

I see a clearing and pull my bike off to the side of the road. I know this is probably one of the stupidest things I have ever done, but if they keep chasing me like they have been, we could all end up seriously hurt. I pull over and don't even shut down my bike. I just lower my kickstand as my heart, which was already beating hard, begins to bang violently against my ribcage as they surround me.

"What the fuck is wrong with you?" the guy who was at the head of the group asks, stepping in front of my bike.

I shake my head as my words get lodged in my throat.

He pulls me off my bike, and the men who are with him begin yelling obscenities as well.

"Sorry," I croak out, and I don't even know if he hears me as his hand goes to the collar of my leather jacket, where he shakes me hard. My hand accidently presses down on the button that ignites the Taser. The loud crack fills the air, and his eyes go wide then he falls to the ground, and I fall on my ass and crabwalk backwards. I look up when I hit something, only to meet the eyes of another man, who looks pissed.

"Get up," he growls, picking me up. My feet flail under me as I'm lifted off the ground with my hands restrained behind my back.

"Hold him still," the guy who I had tasered growls in front of me as I try to get away from the anger I feel coming off him. His hands go to my head and he rips my helmet off, causing my hair to float down around me.

Complete silence descends. I swear no one even takes a breath.






✿ Review ✿





♡ Loved, loved, loved this book! ♡

Until July is the first book of the Until Her series and follows July Mayson and Wes Silver's story.




July and Wes met when she almost knocked him off his bike. She is chased by him and his fellow bikers and when confronted by them, July isn't intimidated and accidentally tasers Wes. And that's how July Mayson met her BOOM!




I loved this book. It has a fantastic story that keeps the reader wanting more. It is funny, sweet, hot and packed with action and suspense.




July Mayson is the daughter of Asher and November Mayson, whom we met in Until November. She is the perfect mix of her parents: strong, fierce, stubborn, independent, sweet and kind.




Wes Silver is the perfect alpha male: protective, fierce, possessive but kind and gentle with a heart of gold. And hot too!




Once again, Aurora Rose Reynolds brings us an amazing book, perfectly written, making the reader connect with the characters.




Can't wait to read the rest of the Until Her series (Until June promises to be amazing!) and to read the Until Him series (can't wait for Until Jax!)!!!

♡ Cover Reveal ♡ The Billionaire Game by Lila Monroe + Excerpt @lilawrites @givemebooksblog




The Billionaire Game
The Billionaire Game
by
Lila Monroe

Cover Designer: British Empire Designs

Release Date: May 4, 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Sexy playboy billionaire Asher Young goes through girlfriends like he goes through bottles of Moët. I would know — he brings them all to get fitted for my luxury lingerie designs. I guess that's one way to avoid awkward conversations when they find another girl's panties in his Maserati.

Now he has a proposition for me: he'll invest in my design business, and I'll finally open the boutique of my dreams.

There's just one problem: I can't stop kissing him. And he looks REALLY good naked.

Make that two problems...














✿ Excerpt ✿


"I can have my lawyers draw up the contract this afternoon: I'll front the cash in exchange for minority percentage of ownership. Are you in?"

He looked especially kissable in that moment, all hopeful and earnest and excited, and a tiny bit vulnerable as he waited for my answer. It was hard to remember all the times he had made me so mad, hard to remember that there was anything about this man that anyone could find infuriating.

There was a little whisper of worry in the back of my mind that said I still didn't know who the real Asher was: was it the sweet man who reassured me that he believed in me, and joked about his own failings? Or the condescending, flirty asshole who had three girlfriends but still couldn't keep his sly winks and hands to himself?

I looked around the store and as the anticipation bubbled up inside me, I realized that it didn't matter. This whole venture was a risk, especially with Asher, but there was no way I was going to say no. Not when this was what I had always wanted.

"Okay," I said out loud. "You've got a deal."

Now, all I had to do was make it through this business partnership without killing him, kissing him, or both.

✾ Synopsis ✾


His name is Rafaele Vestri, Rafe to his friends.

He's tall, strong, handsome. Distant. He often comes to the café where I work, but we don't talk much. He looks at me, though. Stares at me, his gaze heated, and I can't help but stare back. I want him, I won't deny it. I've never seen anyone that beautiful, anyone that powerful, in my life.

But he's growing more withdrawn by the day. Something's up, and he won't tell. I know about his past – the murder of his family when he was fifteen. I can imagine what it must have cost him. So much violence contained in that strong body, waiting to be unleashed. What is he seeking? What is he training so hard for? Why is looking at me like he's dying to touch me, but won't dare?

Even as I try to stop thinking about him, get interested in other boys, I realize I can't. I'm caught, body and soul, just like that. And I tell myself, Megan, girl... What have you gotten yourself into this time?

Standalone novel. No cliffhanger.

✿ Excerpt ✿


In a daze, I walk toward the back of the coffee shop, my hand in Rafe's, pulling him along. He's offering no resistance, his grip so tight around my fingers it hurts, but I don't care. It feels good, feels right.

His presence, like always, zips down my nerve endings like electricity, raising goosebumps on my skin, making my breasts feel heavy and tight. Lighting an ache inside me, creating a void I don’t know how to fill.

I try to ignore it, and focus instead on placing one foot in front of the other. When I saw him standing there, caught between rage, fear, and a sadness so deep it cut like a blade, I didn't know how to help.

Not sure how one person can hold so much inside and not come apart. I'd give anything to take that darkness from his gaze, and isn't that the weirdest thing? For someone I have barely exchanged two words with in the past months?

But I know what it is. It's that pain, that anger and fear I glimpse behind the façade that keep me coming back.

And the façade sure is beautiful. As soon as we reach the back wall and I turn to face him, I’m struck speechless again. That square jaw, those pretty long-lashed golden eyes, that soft mouth... Throw in the tall, strong body, and I'm just about drooling with lust.

Dammit, Megan. Stop. I glance back at the crowded tables, then down at my long apron. Stop it.

I'm doing by best not to look at him, but it's a lost battle. I'm painfully aware of the heat of his body, so close to mine. Of how good his strong hand feels wrapped around mine. He's all I can think of.

I tug on it half-heartedly, not really wanting to let go.

He tugs back, pulling me to him. I gasp in shock when our bodies collide, tilting me off balance. Before I fall, his other arm comes around my back, shoring me up. Keeping me pressed to his muscled thighs and chest, my breasts mashed against him.

Oh dear God.

He's looking down at me, his gaze hot as flames, and his mouth is so close my own goes dry. I lick my lips, my free hand sliding up his chest to rest between his defined pecs, and his head bends lower. I feel his heart stutter under my palm.

In silence, he walks me backward until my back hits the wall. He lifts our entwined hands and shoves them against the fading wallpaper. His other arm is still around me, keeping our bodies flush, so that I feel every excited inch of him, the hard, thick rod of his erection digging into my stomach through our layers of clothes.

Another gasp escapes me, and I feel myself growing hot and wet between my legs. A throb starts low in my belly, and I try to lift myself on my toes, to press more of my body to his, my hand straining where it's held to the wall in a grip of steel.

His lashes shadow his eyes, and a shudder rocks him. His lips part. His breath fans over my skin, a faint scent of mint and smoke.

"Megan..." he whispers.

I still, my hand on his muscled chest, the other clenching uselessly in his hold. Caught between the wall and his hard body, caught in his burning gaze, I don't know what to do.
