✾ Synopsis ✾


Jamie Matthews is stuck in a rut. After hitting a wall with her dream career, she's back in her hometown, living a life as monotonous as swimming laps in the neighborhood pool.

Being surrounded by her perfect brothers is a painful reminder of her failure to launch. The last bonfire of the summer is an ideal way to let off steam, especially when she runs into Dean Trescott, the playboy friend she had one hot-as-hell night with back in high school.

Since the day Dean met Jamie, he's loved her beauty, talent, and smile that lit up the whole damn block. But dating isn't an option. She has a bright future ahead of her, and he refuses to chain her to his — helping run the family business that's barely staying afloat.

A "what-happens-in-Vegas" weekend was supposed to get their craving for each other out of their systems. But neither counted on the past repeating itself, drawing them together in even hotter and dirtier ways and dangling the possibility they might both be able to get exactly what they need...

Warning: A friends-to-lovers twice over story that contains some hot 'n' heavy kissing in the waves, hair pulling, and a man who knows how to use his hands. It may also feature a few practical jokes — only the fun kind, of course.

✿ Excerpt ✿


No one in her family had asked any questions when she'd gone back to the ballroom on Sunday, which wasn't a big surprise. At least now her home had emptied out. Sean and Kim had left for their honeymoon, Brendan and Owen went back home, and her parents had gone off on a little post-wedding getaway. Krissy was the only one who'd stayed behind an extra day, finally vacating the premises yesterday.

Jamie had driven her to the bus station before her shift. The girl's incessant stream of questions had reached the limits of her patience, especially when Krissy asked why she and Dean weren't together. Jamie hadn't had nearly enough coffee to deal with that one. What was she supposed to say?

"There's nothing going on between us."

"We're just friends."

"I want him so badly I can hardly function when he's around."

She'd replied that it was complicated. That they'd gone there more than once, realized they shouldn't have, and it was stupid to go down that road again. She'd figured being completely honest would wipe out the chance of Krissy asking another freaking question. What she'd gotten instead was a lecture, the girl going on for longer than Jamie's brain could handle about people acting how they thought they should rather than how they wanted to, afraid of the consequences, and that she and Dean should stop pretending they didn't want each other and get it over with already.

As if it was that easy.

She'd thanked Krissy for the advice and sent her on her way.

The psychoanalysis hadn't been necessary. Jamie had already thought about Dean's little theory, wondering what Maslow would've said about last weekend’s fiasco.

Sex was a basic human need, so she'd probably earned herself a few hierarchical points with that. She'd only been following her physical instincts, trying to satisfy a craving. But still wanting Dean, when they'd proven several times it could never work out? Maslow probably would've said that ranked pretty high up there on the list of the dumbest things she'd ever done.

Dean Trescott was a bad habit, an addiction Jamie needed to kick. She needed to get herself unhooked, not dive headfirst into it.

Unless it was only for one night.

She stared at the kickboards, Dean's words like a dart to a bull's-eye. Maybe the reason she hadn't been able to drop this hunger for him was because they'd never technically done the deed. She needed to move on, but she couldn’t do that until she got what she wanted.

Until she'd satisfied this need.

If they did it, then there was a chance she'd be able to get him out of her head. The idea of "just one night" had alerted her mental warning system when he'd said it, but if she was the one to suggest it, with every intention of walking away, maybe that would work. She didn't want to navigate their way back to friendship again after another drunken episode, but if they went into it with their eyes open, both of them knowing what was expected afterward, then maybe she could find the kill switch on this crazy cycle they had going and kick her craving for good.

Neither of them would be hoping for more. She wasn’t any more capable of commitment than he was. Dean's attention span was limited, and she wasn't stupid enough to think she'd be the woman who changed him.

She didn't want to change him.

She did want to sleep with him, though.

♡ Excerpt Reveal ♡ Bleeding Love (Hope Town #2) by Harper Sloan @harpersloan @RSofRomance





"Last chance," he tells me with a wicked grin. "And this time I mean last one, darlin'. We take this step and make no doubt about it, you will be mine. You give me this and I fucking promise you that I will never make you regret taking that step. You ready to jump from that chapter you've been skimming through and skip into mine?"

I give him a smile, one that is full of confidence and not the least bit unsure as the words that he had told me weeks before come back between us.

"I'm ready."

"Fuck," he groans. "Buckle up, baby."

My smile doesn't slip for a second. Not when I pull my belt across my chest. Not when he slams the door and races to his own. It grows wider when he slams the truck in drive and fishtails back onto the path that will take us back toward town. It isn't until his big hand reaches out and takes my leg in his strong hold that my smile slips slightly, but it only slips because my head falls back and I whimper and try to rub my legs together to ease the ache between them. I lose the smile completely when my mouth drops open and that whimper turns into a loud whine as his long fingers dance up my legs until he slips beneath the hem on my shorts and pushes my panties to the side, pressing against my clit in sure movements that have me panting in seconds.

"Fucking drenched," he grounds out through his tightly clamped teeth.

I roll my head against the headrest and look across the cab at his face. His finger dips from my swollen clit and as he drops his hand lower, his wrist twists slightly so that when he gets there his finger slides deep inside me.

My legs spread instantly when his thick finger fills me and I hear his rumbled groan fill the space around us as he slides his finger as deep as his position allows before pulling it back, then repeating his movements until I can feel myself soaking his hand. If he keeps this up, I won't last. He adds a second finger and my hand digs into the door and I reach out, wrapping my other around his forearm and choke on shattered breaths when he thrusts his fingers so deep, I feel like I've been electrocuted as he hits that spot that has me panting, whimpering and begging incoherently.

"Please, Lee, please," I pant. How I formed those words, I'll never know.

"Fuck," he snarls, the sound making my arousal spike even higher. "You'll call me that when I'm so deep inside you my balls will be soaked with this sweetness."

His fingers curl and I pant, my hand cramping around the force of my grip.

"Please, oh God. Not without you, please."

I pray he understands my plea and when he curses, I know he gets me. His hand leaves my pants and I cry out, causing him to spit out a string of curses that would make a sailor blush. His leg slams down and I feel the truck pick up speed as I watch him take his fingers to his mouth and lick every drop of my wetness from his skin.

"Holy shit," I exhale.

"You're getting my mouth first, darlin'. That wasn't enough of a taste and fuck me, I'm starved."

I say nothing, just continue to feel like my heart is about to slam from my chest as I continue to shift my legs back and forth in attempt to ease the burn he's lit between my legs.

✾ Synopsis ✾


(Stand alone)

I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.

Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.

Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.

He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.

Harper Sloan

Release Date: February 17th 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Have you ever felt like you were living your life for a future that was predetermined? Like there was some bigger picture you just prayed you would someday see clearly? That picture has been crystal clear to me since I was old enough to recognize it for just what it was.

Or I should say recognize him for who he was.

I've loved Cohen Cage since I was a small child. He's been my everything for the last twenty-two years. I've loved him through every girlfriend he's ever brought home. Through his college years and then mine. I've loved him through two deployments. And ever since the day I told him how I felt, he's acted like I'm a stranger.

My name is Danielle Reid, and it's time for me to get my man.

Our future is an unexpected fate, and no matter what our parents, siblings, and friends say... it's going to be worth every second of the fight to make it happen.

♡ Excerpt Reveal ♡ Outside by Michelle Mankin @MichelleMankin @RSofRomance






The walls vibrated as soon as the spotlights hit them. Feet stomped. Fans yelled. Some even stood on their chairs. Camera lights clicked on and so did Lincoln. Brightly. He strode to the center of the stage. Confident. Compelling. Controlled. A cosmic force.

He plucked the mic from the stand glared at the audience daring them to come along with him or get the hell out of the way, before he and the guys launched into a cover of 'Satisfaction' that kicked ass as righteously as the original.

It went uphill from there. Ramon on guitar flashing his flirt. Ash slamming sexy on his drums. Patch firm and steady on bass. And Linc my gorgeous warrior with depths of worth that he still failed to recognize eclipsing them all. The Dirt Dogs might still a bit rough around the edges but they were undeniably on the ascent. What had started out as something to occupy their time when the surf wasn't up had transformed into a magical mélange of Pacific saltwater, California sun and hard rocking in your face attitude.








I moved quickly across the parking lot shielding my eyes from the glare when I reached the sand. The tension inside my stomach instantly ratcheted tighter. I recognized Lincoln right away. Even in his wet suit the way he moved across the surface of the ocean on his board was as unique as he was.

Under the curtain unleashing his fins.

Maxing out of the tube.

Finding steep wall and going nearly vertical.

Those were the maneuvers I knew, the others I didn't but that didn't make them any less awe inspiring.


'My favorite inspirational surf youtube video with music that captures the tone and spirit of Outside perfectly'








"You afraid?"

I shook my head. I was never afraid of him. Never.

He studied me a beat seeming to notice my parted lips, heavy breathing, hard nipples and trembling.

"Turned on?" he guessed.

I nodded.

"Get on my board then, babe. I aim to please if you'll let me."

Outside
by
Michelle Mankin

Release Date: July 19th 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Outside
Rock Stars, Surf and Second Chances

When handsome California surf god Lincoln Savage suddenly rolls into Ocean Beach like a rogue wave, shy beauty Simone Bianchi's foundation is shaken. No longer under the thumb of her domineering father, she's made a simple quiet life for herself and her fluffy fourteen pound Havanese pup running a surf shop in her hometown of OB. Long ago she gave up her dreams for a future with Linc.

But now the notorious lead singer of the Dirt Dogs has returned, and Simone is reluctant to admit that she's still vulnerable to his killer dimpled smile and easy charm. She finds that although she's stowed away the mementos, it hasn't been as easy to erase the memories of their epic summer love.

It seems he hasn't forgotten, either.

Is the recording contract he's offering merely a pretense?

Or does he have something more in mind?

Does he really believe that they can just pick up where they left off, despite all the bad luck and heartache?

And is she willing to risk everything again for one last chance at love?

Cover Designer: Letitia Hasser, r.b.a designs

Cover Model: Nick Ayler





✾ Synopsis ✾


He was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska.

A sexy, cocky, Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive.

When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually-tense nights in hotels and taking unplanned detours.

My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense.

I wanted him, but Chance wouldn’t make a move. I thought he wanted me too, but something was holding him back.

I wasn't supposed to fall for the cocky bastard, especially when I knew we'd be going our separate ways.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.
