✿ Excerpts ✿


"Hey there," a deep voice rumbled against my ear.

When I turned around, I was eye level with a wall of leather with white patches sewn into it. One read VICE PRESIDENT and the other, BEACH BASTARDS. The man wearing the vest had long blonde hair that draped over to one side of his head, revealing the shaved area beneath. He had a beard, not stubble, a full-on beard that was a few inches long and very well groomed. He stood well over six feet, his frame lean yet very cut and muscular. I couldn't tell what color his eyes were because his lids hung heavy and were slightly reddened. His entire neck was covered with colorful tattoos and when he went to light a cigarette I noticed that the backs of both of his hands and were covered in ink as well.

"Hey," I answered back, trying to assert my newly found false confidence.

He was beyond attractive. He was gorgeous. If I had to end up in someone's bed, I imagined that being in his wouldn't be half-bad. He sniffled, drawing attention to the light dusting of white powder trapped in his nostrils.

"They call me Bear. You belong to anyone?" he asked seductively, leaning in toward me.

"Maybe... you?" I winced at my choice of words. Of all the fucking things I could have said, THAT was what came to mind? Stupid fucking mouth. Nikki was right. I spoke first and thought second.

Bear chuckled. "I'd love that, beautiful, but I got something else in mind."

"Oh, yeah? What would that be?" I asked, trying to keep my tone light although my mind and heart were racing.

"This party? It's for my buddy. And he was down here for a total of thirty minutes before he hightailed it upstairs to drown himself in a bottle of Jack. He's like a cat in a tree, can't seem to talk him down. It's understandable, seeing as he's been away a while, but I figure you can help me out."

He hooked his finger into the front of my skirt and slowly dragged me toward him until my nipples were flush up against his chest. He pressed his fingers into the skin right above my public bone and I resisted the urge to jump back by biting down on my bottom lip.

"The BBB's have never really been his thing." He paused when he saw the confused look on my face at his abbreviation. "Beach Bastard Bitches." He explained. "But you? You're new. You're different. You've got this cute little innocent thing going on, but I know you're not or you wouldn't be at this kind of party if that was your deal. I'm thinking he'll like you." Bear brushed his lips against the side of my neck. "So maybe you go up there. Make him happy for me. Make little him happy by wrapping those gorgeous lips around his cock for a while. Then when you're done, bring him back down here to civilization. And maybe later, if you're a good girl and do what you're told, we can go back to the clubhouse and have some real fun." He grazed his teeth along my earlobe. "Think you can you do that for me?"

"Yeah, yeah I can do that," I said. My skin prickling from his touch. And I could do it.

I think.

"What's your name anyway?" Bear's hand slowly traveled up the back of my leg, pushing up my skirt, it came to rest on my ass cheek, which was then exposed to anyone who might have been looking in our direction.

"Doe. My name is Doe," I breathed.

"Fitting." He said with a chuckle. "Well, my innocent looking little Doe." Bear leaned in close and surprised me by planting a soft kiss on the corner of my mouth. His lips were soft, and he smelled like laundry detergent mixed with liquor and cigarettes. I was just beginning to think that the kiss meant that he'd changed his mind and didn't want me to send me away to his friend, but no such luck. He pulled away abruptly and turned me around by my shoulders so that I was facing the stairs. He swatted me on my ass, propelling me forward. "Up the stairs you go, sweetheart. Last room at the end of the hallway. Be good to my boy, and me and you will get to play later." He sealed his words with a wink and as I made my way up the stairs I turned back and flashed him a fake smile. I hoped the guy at the end of the hallway was like Bear, because then maybe it wouldn’t be so bad.

Then a thought hit me that had me fighting back the tears that sprung from my eyes with a sudden force that almost took me to my knees.

I'd officially sold myself, and the price was far more than any dollar amount.

Tyrant
King #2

T.M. Frazier

Release Date: August 17th, 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


I. Remember. Everything.

Only now I wish I didn't.

When the fog is sucked away from my mind like smoke through a vacuum, the truth that has been beyond my reach for months finally reveals itself.

But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I'm more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King's bed.

Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know.
I will put the lives of those I love most at risk if I let on that my memory has returned, or if I seek help from the heavily tattooed felon who owns me body and soul.

I don't know if I'm strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day.

He's already saved me in more ways than one. Now it's my turn to do whatever it takes to save him.

Even if that means marrying someone else...

♡ Release Blitz + #Review + #Giveaway ♡ Play Me: The Complete Story by Tracy Wolff @TracyWolff @givemebooksblog @readloveswept




Play Me: The Complete Story
Play Me #1-5
by
Tracy Wolff

Publisher: Loveswept

Release Date: June 16, 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


From the New York Times bestselling author of the Ethan Frost novels — Ruined, Addicted, and Exposed — comes the sultry tale of a young woman searching for a bit of control... and the powerful new boss who makes her go wild. Originally released as a five-part serial, this eBook bundle collects the complete saga from beginning to end: a sizzling affair loaded with desire, seduction, betrayal, and dark romance.

My name is Aria Winston. I've fought desperately to escape the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas. Now I'm on my own, in control of my own life and my own destiny... just the way I like it. Until Sebastian Caine changes everything.

Working as a cocktail waitress at one of Vegas's hottest five-star casinos means putting up with a ton of bad behavior from the big spenders. But it pays the bills — and that's all that matters to Aria, who needs every last dollar to escape from her father's destructive grasp and the brutal man he expects her to marry. But when she lashes out against a billionaire who won«t take no for an answer, she nearly loses everything — until Sebastian steps in. The owner's son and handpicked successor, Sebastian is dark, sexy, and kinder than any rich man should be. And when he apologizes and offers to keep her job safe, Aria can't help the way her body reacts to his. Suddenly her job, and the security it brings her, isn't the only thing Aria wants.

✿ My Review ✿


Play Me: The Complete Story is Aria and Sebastian's story. It was previously published in five novellas: Play Me Wild (Play Me #1), Play Me Hot (Play Me #2), Play Me Hard (Play Me #3), Play Me Real (Play Me #4), and Play Me Right (Play Me #5).

Aria works as a cocktail waitress at a Vegas's casino. One night, she is fired after going to the rescue of a young woman being abused by a rich gambler. The next day, when she goes back to the casino to pick her last pay check, she meets Sebastian, the son of the casino owner and new CEO. Sebastian praises her for what she did and does not fire her. The attraction between them is immediate and neither of them can't fight it. But Aria is hiding something from her past and isn't keen on letting Sebastian's dominant ways control her. Will she submit to Sebastian?




Play Me is a great book with a captivating story that keeps the reader wanting more. It is full of suspense, drama and incredible hot scenes.




Aria is a strong woman, very independent and a fighter. Something bad happened to her and she cut her ties with most of her family, renouncing her family's name.
Sebastian is a total alpha: he is dominant, strong, and fierce. He also has a kind and gentle heart and doesn't like seeing other people being treated badly.
I loved the chemistry between Aria and Sebastian. It was off the charts!!!




Play Me: The Complete Story is a great read, with a story and characters that hook the reader from the first page. However, I wish that there was more to the end. It felt it ended a little abruptly.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Tanner

Aw, shit.

I watched Andrea walk into the living room, the normal twitch of her hips absent. No one swayed ass like Andrea, and seeing it gone from her step was answer enough. Our normal whatever-the-fuck-it-was between us had gone further than I intended. No doubt what I'd said had cut her, but shit, it was no different than any other day.

My hand tightened on the neck of the bottle. For the life of me, I had no idea what the hell Andrea Walters's problem was. Honestly. No fucking clue. One minute, sweet and sugary words parted those pouty pink lips of hers. Next second, she was a fire-breathing dragon from hell — a hot, fire-breathing dragon, but still. Her moods flipped more quickly than cups did during a game of flip cup.

Maybe it was because she was a redhead?

I smirked.

She'd always been this way with me, and the most fucked-up think about it, there was a part of me that actually looked forward to whatever was going to come out of her mouth. Twisted as fuck. It was like a game between us, to see who could hit the hardest without lifting a finger. If nothing else, it was damn entertaining — or at least, it had been until now. Now, I wasn't too sure about it.

Those pretty doe eyes of hers had looked suspiciously damp right before she'd looked away, and yeah... that didn't sit right with me.

Kyler shot me a look as he walked past me and grabbed a beer out of the fridge, but I watched Andrea sit on the edge of the couch, her posture unnaturally rigid.

Sydney leaned against the arm. "We're thinking about leaving early in the morning, around six."

My gaze flicked to Andrea, expecting her to make some kind of crack about not getting up that early, but she was abnormally quiet. My spine stiffened.

"That should put us at the cabin between nine and ten in the morning, depending on traffic." Kyler stood beside me as he screwed off the cap. "Then we'll be heading back the following Monday."

"Sounds good to me." I didn't take my eyes off Andrea as she fiddled with a strap on her sandals, slipping them onto her feet.

Sydney glanced at me, smiling softly. "You're definitely off from the fire department?"

I nodded. Kyler had mentioned weeks ago about wanting to hit up the cabin before everyone headed back to class, and I'd requested the time off then. Which had meant I'd pulled a lot of doubles, but I hadn't minded it. Wasn't too different from the twelve-hour shifts we worked in the first place, and I'd only be there until February of next year, and then I was off to the academy. Not that I was in any hurry to leave the fire department, but being a cop was in my blood. Except I wanted to be a good cop. I'd probably still volunteer at the fire hall once I knew what kind of schedule I was looking at on the force.

"It makes sense if we drive up together." Sydney toyed with a strand of her hair. "Kyler and I can pick you two up."

Andrea had twisted toward Sydney and started to protest the whole idea of taking one car. I zoned out, staring at her as the bottle of beer dangled from the tips of my fingers.

Damn... she was a cute girl. Nah, she was more than cute, and it wasn't like this was the first time I'd noticed that. From the first time I'd seen her at the bar with Sydney, she'd done more than just poke my interest. Hell, anyone with eyes knew she was a very pretty girl. Lush lips. Freckled cheeks and thick, dark eyelashes. Come to think of it, she reminded me of a girl I'd had a crush on in middle school. Hell, couldn't remember that chick's name, but she'd had freckles and red hair. I think I used to pull on her braids or some annoying shit like that. My lips tipped up in a small grin as I lifted the bottle to my mouth. Andrea was a motherfucking firecracker, though, not the kind of girl who was easily tamed.

Hell, not the kind of girl you even wanted to tame.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Nicolas stands in the hallway, a sheepish smile on his beautiful face, and my small burst of joy dissipates, replaced by the dreaded malaise. He's handsome, the lights shining on his black wavy hair, tanned skin, dark eyes. He's immaculately dressed in a gray suit, white shirt, pink tie. He's carrying ice cream, a small tub of Heavenly Hash cradled in his perfectly manicured fingers.

But he's not Hawke. He's not the man I love, the only person I want to see.

"Don't look at me like that, Bee." Nicolas pushes his way into the condo. "I had that situation with the New York build last night. There will be fancy events in the future." He holds up the tub. "I brought ice cream."

I summon a smile. "You forgot about me." I take the ice cream from the dashing billionaire. "What do those articles I sent you say about forgetting friends?"

Nicolas grimaces. "You knew I was a bad friend." He walks with me to the kitchen, smelling of expensive cologne and wealth.

"You're not a bad friend." I set two bowls and two spoons on the counter. "You're a terrible friend." I open the tub of ice cream.

The real estate developer settles his long lean body on a bar stool and dips a spoon in the container. "You're not giving up on me, are you?" The lines carved between his perfect eyebrows belie his casual tone.

"I'd never give up on you." I knock his sucked-clean spoon away and huddle over the tub, protecting the ice cream from impatient-billionaire-induced contamination. "Hawke doesn't love me," I blurt, needing to voice this, to share this with someone.

"He said that?" Nicolas steals a spoonful of ice cream from the bowl I'm filling.

"No." I frown, scooping as fast as I can. "But he's never said he loves me, either." I push Nicolas's bowl toward him.

His eyes sparkle. "I've never said I love ice cream." He shovels the sweet treat into his mouth with a boyish glee. "But I do. Very much." His lips curl upward. "The name of this flavor is perfect. It is heavenly."

"Hawke doesn't love me," I repeat stubbornly, dishing out a smaller portion for myself.

"A good friend would agree with you." Nicolas's head is bent over his ice cream.

"You're not a good friend." I place the tub in the freezer compartment of the fridge. "What would you do?"

"I'd tell you that neither of you are acting rationally, that if craziness is a sign of love, Hawke has it much worse than you." Nicolas licks his spoon. "He guards you like you're the last piece of prime real estate on the planet. I'm taking my life into my hands by simply eating ice cream with you."

I climb onto the bar stool beside him, his observations about Hawke's protectiveness appeasing me, banishing some of my melancholy. "He cares about me."

"No, he cares about his team." The billionaire's lips flatten grimly. "Disregarding all of my advice about maintaining his distance." Nicolas believes remaining aloof from his employees makes painful staffing decisions less traumatic. "What Hawke feels for you is in an entirely different category."

"It isn't love." Or is it?





✿ Guest Post ✿


Saying Goodbye to Bee, Hawke And Nicolas

One of the most common questions reading buddies ask me is "What is the toughest part of writing?" For me, the toughest part is the last chapter or, in the case of Sinful Rewards, my sizzling hot 12 novella contemporary erotic romance series, the last novella.

I know, while writing this part of the story, that I'll be saying good-bye to beloved characters. Yes, I'll be able to reread the story and visit them but I'll no longer be living in their world, listening to their every thought, experiencing every emotion.

What will I miss most about the characters in Sinful Rewards?

Bee/Belinda

Bee, of all of the characters in Sinful Rewards, has grown the most. Our exhibitionist-in-training heroine started the serial with a fairly shallow view of others, herself, love, life. She's endured quite a bit. These experiences have changed her.

I suspect she'll continue to change, continue to make the transition from twenty-something new grad to mature, confident woman. She's surrounded by strong female role models — her mom, Ellen, Lona. I can see them all influencing her. I'll miss seeing that change.


Hawke

Hawke is a man of surprises. That's what I'll miss about our tattooed bad boy biker. He loves new experiences and sharing these new experiences with the people he loves. I doubt that he will ever have a 'normal' day. His job is constantly changing and he enjoys this aspect of it.

I couldn't guess what he'll be doing a day, month, year after Sinful Rewards ends. I know he'll have his loved ones, his team around him. He's as loyal as Bee is, as committed to his friends, family, woman. But I don't know what his day will entail.


Nicolas

Nicolas is the character I wish I had spent more time with. Our jellybean eating billionaire has emotional depths we haven't even started to explore. I'll miss his self-depreciating sarcasm and his feigned arrogance, the vulnerability he hides under his business bastard personae.

I'll miss the characters from Sinful Rewards but I feel fortunate to have known them. They've changed me as much as, I suspect, I've changed them.

Are there characters from romance novels that you miss?
