♡ Trailer & Excerpt Reveal ♡ The Perfect Life by Erin Noelle @authorenoelle @loveaffairwfict #PreOrder #99c




The Perfect Life
by
Erin Noelle

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 18th 2016







I had the perfect life.

The perfect husband. Colin Cassidy — the incredibly talented, extremely gorgeous, and unbelievably humble star NFL quarterback.

The perfect marriage. Our bond was unbreakable. His support unwavering.

The perfect career. As the recently-appointed executive director for the Boston chapter of Mending Hearts, a child abuse prevention and treatment program, my daily reward was helping to keep vulnerable, innocent children from being preyed upon and destroyed. It's all I'd wanted to do since I was a teenager.

Perfect city. Perfect car. Perfect house with the perfect view.

From the outside looking in, it was impossible to find a single flaw in my life. I had it all. Everything I'd ever wanted.

But that kind of perfection came at a price. Demanded the ultimate sacrifice.

What happened when I discovered what I'd been missing all along? When I began to question if the lies were worth protecting?

What if suddenly the last thing I wanted was to be perfect?

"What in the world is all this?" I asked with a chuckle, hovering under the archway that separated the living room and kitchen. "Did you invite the offensive line over for breakfast or something?"

Colin, still dressed in his pajama pants and a plain white t-shirt, whisked something feverishly at the stove while I gaped at the steaming, mouth-watering spread on the butcher-block kitchen island. Buttery scrambled eggs. Waffles. French toast. Crispy bacon. Sausage. Hash browns. Flaky buttermilk biscuits. And fresh strawberries with homemade whipped cream to top it all off. I'm pretty sure I gained five pounds just looking at it all. So much for that workout.

"I'd need a lot more food than this, if that was the case," he contended as he shot me a teasing smile. Momentarily abandoning the baked beans in the saucepan, he set the wooden spoon down on the counter, turned the heat down to low, and closed the distance between us to kiss my forehead. "Morning, gorgeous. I'd give you a proper hug, but my hands are all greasy. How was your workout?"

I scrunched my nose up and gave a sharp shake of my head. "It sucked."

His chest shook with laughter as he bent down to rub the tip of his nose against mine. An Eskimo kiss, it was called, according to Colin. My mom wasn't big on any kind of kisses, hugs, or demonstrations of love for anyone other than her current boyfriend or husband, and since I'd never had a boyfriend before him, it took me some time after Colin and I started dating to get used to his open displays of affection — both public and private — but soon... soon I began to love them. To live for them. They were my drug. He was my drug. All I needed to keep my perfect world balanced and me grounded.

"You knew better when you took that final glass of wine last night. I saw the hesitation in your eyes," he half-scolded, returning to the food I still contended was not a breakfast food at all, despite his and his parents' claim otherwise. I didn't care that Google backed them up, maintaining beans were common in breakfasts throughout many countries that were once a part of the British Empire. The only way I was eating them at nine in the morning was if I was camping, or it was the apocalypse. Otherwise, they were a lunch or dinner-only menu item.

"Yeah, I did." Sighing, I shuffled inside the gourmet kitchen and plopped down on one of the four bar stools situated around the island, where we ate ninety-nine percent of our meals. It was my seat while we were in this room, which was more often than not if we were home. When we originally bought the house after Colin was drafted by his hometown team, the first thing we did was have the entire thing gutted and redesigned to our liking.

The kitchen was my husband’s pet project, as he claimed it would be the heart of our home. He personally selected everything from the mahogany cabinets and black-and-tan marble countertops, to the natural wood accessories and the toaster that had more settings than a spaceship. Warm, cheery butterscotch walls. Restaurant-quality stainless steel appliances. Ornate hardware on all of the drawers and cupboards. It didn't make sense to me then, but as we settled into our life together, I soon discovered that if we weren't in our bedrooms, chances were we were in the kitchen — either comparing our daily schedules over coffee and a healthy breakfast in the mornings or catching up at night at night over dinner. It was our place. Just like this was my stool. Unfortunately, our already-busy schedules only seemed to be growing more and more hectic over the previous few months, and we'd been missing each other more frequently than I'd have liked.

"You never told me what this is all for," I reminded him before I snuck a piece of bacon and shoved it in my mouth.

"We're celebrating." Peering over his shoulder, he smirked as he watched me chew the heart-attack inducing deliciousness. "And get your grubby little fingers out of the bacon until it's time to make our plates."

I moaned as I swallowed. I couldn't help it. It was that good. Bacon was my weakness; I could never have a pet pig.

Once I'd finished climaxing with Wilbur's belly, I realized my husband was still staring at me, his expression unreadable. "I hope you don't do that in public, Roe. That sound would give a hundred-year-old man on his deathbed a woody."

My right eyebrow arched high up into my forehead, a combination of confusion over the celebration comment and a where-in-the-hell-did-he-come-up-with-some-of-this-stuff look. I opted to ignore the old-guy-with-a-boner explanation and found out when I could have more bacon. "What are we celebrating?"

He twisted back around to stir the beans, even though I could see the burner was off and they were clearly ready and didn't need stirring. The only time Colin didn't face me when he was talking was when he was nervous. And only one subject made Colin nervous.

"Well, the success of the gala, of course. I know I said it last night, but I was so impressed with everything. You kicked ass, babe." He paused briefly to exhale loudly then continued on. "This is also my last Sunday home before the season starts. After this, we won't get to do our Funday Sundays until after playoffs next February, and I knew you were going to meet with Allison later, so I wanted breakfast to be awesome." Another pause. Longer this time. Two deep breaths. "And after we got home last night—"

"This incredible guy showed up," a familiar male voice that belonged to Colin's childhood next-door neighbor and best friend finished the sentence from behind me.

I quickly spun around to find Seth Andrews closing in on where I sat, wearing only a pair of loose athletic shorts and with his brown hair all a bedhead mess. He scooped me up off the seat and twirled me in the air as he covered both sides of my cheeks with kisses. I squealed with delight.

"Roe, baby girl, you were amazing last night!" he exclaimed as he eventually lowered me back on the cushion then parked himself two stools away from me. His spot. "Not only did you look absolutely stunning, your speech was fuckin' killah. Those snooty assholes were eating out of the palms of your hands."

"You do know you're one of those snooty assholes, right?" Colin scoffed from the refrigerator while pulling out the milk and orange juice. "And watch your language in my house, especially around Monroe."

Seth rolled his eyes and snatched two pieces of bacon from the platter, giving one to me and keeping the other for himself. I giggled as Colin flared his nostrils when he caught us. "Roe doesn't care if I curse. She works with teenagers. Kids these days throw fuck around like it's an everyday word. I bet Oscar the Grouch teaches them how to spell it on Sesame Street now or some shit."

I wanted to agree that he probably wasn't far off, but instead of riling up Colin even more and forcing him to get out the swear jar, I redirected the conversation. "I was wondering if I was gonna see you here this morning," I said to Seth, "but when you weren't around at the end of the gala, I thought maybe you had to take Effie home and didn't feel like driving back into town."

"Nah," he shook his head as he grabbed a strawberry, "she wanted to go meet some of her friends at a bar, and I didn't want her on the streets by herself, especially considering the fancy shit she was wearing. So I escorted her there and hand-delivered her to a girl I somewhat trust. Then, I ran into a guy I knew from school, so I stayed and had a couple beers while I waited for you two to get home."

"You must've been quiet when you got here. Or I was so tired that I just passed out, oblivious to the world around me." I shrugged my shoulders, not surprised.

Mastered
The Enforcers #1
by
Maya Banks

Release Date: December 29th 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Breathless Trilogy comes the first novel in the Enforcers series — a bold new direction in erotic romance that explores the games men and women play, and the price they're willing to pay for pleasure.

What he wants, he takes with no remorse or guilt.

She stood out in his club like a gem, unspoiled and untouched. A lamb among wolves, she clearly didn't belong. Drawn to her innocence he watched as she was surrounded by men who saw what he did — but no one but him could touch her. He summoned her to his private quarters. He sensed her fear. He also recognized the desire in her eyes. And he knew she wouldn't leave before he possessed her. She had no need to know his secrets. Not until he had her under his complete and utter control.

What he wants, she isn't sure she can give him.

The moment he told her want he wanted, she couldn't resist. Instinct told her to run, but her heart said stay and walk the fine line between pleasure and pain. Though she wasn't sure she could ever completely surrender, the primal part of her wanted to try, even knowing this man could break her in ways she never imagined. Because once he possessed her, he owned her and it would be too late to turn back. She can only pray that he doesn't destroy her in the end.

✿ My Review ✿




Mastered is book one of the The Enforcers series. It is Evangeline and Drake's story. It ends ends with a cliffhanger and their story continues in Dominated.

***

After being dumped and humiliated by her boyfriend, Evangeline follows her friends advice and goes to the hottest club in the city, Impulse, to show him what he threw away. They dress her up and she looks amazing.
However, things don't go as they planned and Evangeline ends up face to face with Drake Donovan, the owner of the club.
Soon, they embark on a special relationship: Evangeline becomes Drake's submissive and must give all of herself to him, and Drake takes care of her and protects her in every way possible.
But Drake still has secrets. Will Evangeline remain by his side when she discovers the truth? Or will Drake lose is Angel?




I really liked Mastered! It is a great book, with a captivating story. It is full of scorching sex scenes and suspense. It keeps the reader guessing what comes next and wanting more.
It is mainly from Evangeline's and Drake's POVs, but there are bits of the story from Drake's men's POVs.

Evangeline is a very sweet and kind young woman. She is naive, innocent and very loyal, but also very strong. After what happened with her ex, she doesn't believe she will ever be enough for anyone, especially a man like Drake. I loved to see her bloom during her time with Drake and how she defended his men.
Drake is a dark and brooding alpha male, that's used to have control of every aspect of his life. He feels an immediate attraction for Evangeline and decides he has to have her. I loved how sweet and gentle he was with Evangeline.
Drake's men are very intriguing, especially Silas. They're very close, they're like brothers. I loved their reactions to Evangeline.




Mastered is a great book, with a captivating story and characters. The last chapters are amazing! I can't wait o read what happens next! I want to know more about Drake's past and more about Silas, Maddox and Justice. I loved them!

This is the first book I've read written by Maya Banks and she didn't disappoint. Her writing style is amazing and I can't wait to read all of her books!

✿ The Author ✿


My name is Maya Banks and I live in Texas with my husband and three children and our assortment of pets. I'm more of a cat person, but my daughter became convinced she NEEDED a dog. So convinced in fact that it became her mission to convince her father and me. She prepared a two page hand written proposal that detailed WHY she needed a dog, and well, after I sent her to her father (I knew he wouldn't tell her no) we embarked on the search for the perfect dog. The journey that was two hours away and that I got pulled over for speeding while I was on the phone with my agent who had an offer from a publisher for one of my books... The officer wasn't impressed. He wrote me a ticket anyway. Thus, I now tell my daughter that her dog turned into one very expensive concession!

When I'm not writing, I love to hunt and fish with my family. We all love the outdoors and go on family hunting trips every year. We also love to travel. One of our more recent trips was to Scotland, which was every bit as comical as National Lampoon's European Vacation. You know the part about "Look kids, Big Ben, Parliament" as they went round and round the roundabouts? Yeah, that was us, only we couldn't even get out of the airport in Glasgow without hitting three of those suckers.

Perhaps the most rewarding aspect of a writing career is getting to meet so many wonderful readers. There's nothing better than dishing books with someone who loves the romance genre as much as I do. Romance readers are passionate and vocal. We love our books, love our happily ever afters, and we love to spend time talking to others about our favorites. THIS is why I love my job so much, and I'm so grateful to readers who gave ME a chance when I began my career. So thank you.
