✿ Excerpt ✿


"I hate hating people. I just dislike you intensely, Aiden. Don't mistake my being kind to your father as kindness toward you. As for being civil, I can do that, too."

Ouch.

"Great. Well, now that we've cleared the air... I'm glad things won't be awkward between us while I'm here."

"No worries."

God, this was going to be a long eight weeks. "Fine. So you hate me."

She shook her head. "That's such a negative emotion. Also, too strong of an emotion for a man I haven't thought about in ten years."

He crossed his arms. "You haven't thought about me in ten years?"

"Nope. Not. At. All."

He took a step closer to her, mostly because he couldn't resist. "I think you're lying."

"And why would you think that?"

"You bring my father food every day."

She took a step closer to him. "Because I feel bad for him, not because of you."

"Well, you must think about me every time you walk into the house."

She rolled her eyes. "More like a passing thought. Like if somebody puked after eating Chinese food, then every time they saw Chinese food, they made the association." He was torn between laughing and being insulted. He glanced down at her mouth, and his stomach clenched. She still had the nicest mouth he'd ever seen. Soft, kissable lips, and he knew, remembered, exactly how she tasted. He was pleased to notice her gaze kept going from his eyes to his mouth. So maybe she thought about other things besides puking when he was around. Not that he'd let on. "When you think about me, you're thinking about vomit?"

She nodded. "Pretty much. Welcome back to Red River, Aiden."

And with those endearing words, the woman he'd thought he'd one day marry opened the door and walked out.

♡ Cover Reveal ♡ The Fix-Up by Kendall Ryan @KendallRyan1 @InkSlingerPR #CoverReveal #ComingSoon #PreOrder #OneClick



♡ Cover Reveal ♡



We are very excited to bring you the highly anticipated cover for The Fix-Up, the standalone novel from New York Times Bestselling Author Kendall Ryan.

The Fix-Up releases on October 11.




The Fix-Up
by
Kendall Ryan

Release Date: October 11th 2016

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Standalone





✾ Synopsis ✾


From New York Times Bestseller, Kendall Ryan, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

My tempting, and very alpha friend Sterling Quinn is someone I consider off-limits.

It's not just that we're friends, he's also a cocky, confident, and British, which means he's a walking aphrodisiac.

But lately he's been giving me the look. You know the one. When he thinks I'm not paying attention, and his gaze lingers for too long.

And then we start working together, and that's when the sexual tension between us gets so thick, I want to hack through it with a machete. I want to make all these deep feelings I've harbored for him disappear, because there's no way this can end well.

The lines between business and pleasure become irrevocably blurred, and I'm stuck between a rock, and Sterling's very, very hard place.

Rather than keep a level head about our growing attraction, Sterling wants to go all in, showing me just how explosive we can be together.

But I've been around long enough to know that this British bad boy is more than my heart can handle. I'm not about to be cast aside like yesterday's underwear when he's done having fun.

Sterling's never been told no, and he's not about to put his ego aside and play by my rules. But I never thought he'd fight so dirty.


*This is a spin-off from the Hitched series, but can be read as a standalone.

When Stars Collide
Light in the Dark #2
by
Micalea Smeltzer

Genre: New Adult

Cover Design: Regina Wamba (Mae I Design)

Release Date: August 30, 2016





✾ Synopsis ✾


We were like two stars orbiting each other — dancing around the possibility that one day we might collide. When we finally did, we opened up a black hole, obliterating everything around us. No one would be the same.
Least of all, us.

Waking up in Vegas married to the guy of your dreams sounds like a good thing, right? Not when you're Thea Montgomery and said guy is your brother's best friend.

Thea and Xander have always avoided the connection between them because her brother would never approve. Now, they're married — the strongest bond you can have as a couple — and they're not even a real couple... unless they want to be.

Thea wants an annulment immediately, but Xander's waited too long to see her become his and he won't let her go easily.

If she wants a divorce, fine, but he wants the summer to convince her that he's the one. If at the end of the summer she still wants to end their marriage he'll sign the papers, but until then...

All is not fair in love and war.

✿ My Review ✿





When Stars Collide is book two in the Light in the Dark series and it's Thea and Xander's story. It can be read as a standalone.

Thea and Xander always had a crush on each other. But because Thea's brother is Xander's best friend, they never acted on their feelings. Until the day they wake up married in Las Vegas.
Thea wants a divorce as soon as possible. But Xander doesn't want to let her go without a fight and asks her to wait until the end of the summer, three months, and only then decide if she really wants to divorce him.
What will happen? Will Thea divorce Xander when the summer ends? Or will Xander show Thea what she really means to him?

I loved this book and its story. It hooked me from the first page with the funny scenes, the little drama and the steamy scenes. The chemistry between Thea and Xander was amazing!

Thea is a very sweet young woman. She is sassy and smart, but there are times she is very vulnerable and shy. She has always had a crush on Xander, but she knew her brother wouldn't aprove. Although in the beginning she doesn't want to give her marriage with Xander a chance, Thea can't resist him.
Xander made me swoon a lot. He is so sweet and kind, but also very possessive and protective. Like Thea, he knows his best friend wouldn't approve their relationship, but he decides to fight for them. He knows what he wants and fights for it.

This is my first book by Micalea Smeltzer and she didn't disappoint. When Stars Collide is a amazing friends-to-lovers romance, very well written. Micalea's writing style makes it easy to connect with the characters and the story and sucks you in from the beginning.
Can't wait to read more!








✿ Excerpt ✿


Unedited and subject to change.

Holy mother of all hangovers.

I'd succumbed to the lure of Vegas and gotten completely wasted. Granted, that's what everyone did in Las Vegas but I like to think I usually have more sense than the social norm.

I rub my eyes and blink them open. The hotel room comes into formation around me. The walls are a warm golden color and the flat screen on the wall plays some home improvement show. I can see the bathroom from the bed, the tiled walls and large soaking tub.

I roll over onto my side, hoping I can sleep off the hangover, and reel back.

"Oh my God," I cry, flailing in bed.

My legs kick the sleeping guy beside me.

Not just any sleeping guy.

Oh no.

Xander Kincaid, my brother's best friend, lays in the bed beside me.

His dark hair tumbles over his forehead and his cheeks are covered with several days worth of scruff. His chest is bare and... holy shit. He's naked.

I look down.

Oh God, I'm naked too.

"What's wrong?" He asks, reaching his left hand out to pull me closer to him. That's when I see it.

"Is that a wedding band?" I scream shrilly.

His eyes narrow. "You don't fucking remember?"

I shake my head and look at my own hand. A thin silver band rests on my finger. "What did we do?"

He sits up in bed and I try to ignore how adorably rumpled he looks with his hair sticking up.

Everything begins flooding back to me in quick bursts.

Drinks.

Kissing.

Laughter.

Confessions of love and desire.

A wedding chapel.

Vows.

Rings.

A contract.

"We're married," I whisper. "Holy shit." It's all I've ever wanted — to be with Xander, but not like this. Never like this. "My brother is going to kill us."

Rae of Sunshine
Light in the Dark #1
by
Micalea Smeltzer








✾ Synopsis ✾


What I remember the most about that day was that it was completely ordinary. Then with one stupid decision everything fell apart and nothing was ever the same.

Rae Wilder wants nothing but a do over — but life doesn't work that way. She's stuck living out the consequences of her actions. At times the burden feels unbearable.

College is supposed to be her second chance.

New place.

New people.

New life.

No one to know what she did.

Despite that, she has still vowed to avoid everyone and everything at all costs.

Unfortunately for her, an accidental run-in with the campus heartthrob, Cade Montgomery, derails that plan.

He's determined to thaw the ice around her heart and expose the girl she used to be. He wants to show her that life is worth living for and that she really is a Rae of Sunshine.

Emma Hart

Release Date: August 30th 2016





✾ Synopsis ✾


What do you get when you mix a bottle of tequila, a single mom moonlighting as a stripper, and her sinfully sexy boss with an impulsive side?
Married. You get married.

Rich. Demanding. Hot. Crazy.
That was Beckett Cruz in a nutshell.
Not to mention wild, determined, dangerous, and forbidden.
He was my boss — and, after a drunken moment of insanity, my new husband.
An annulment was impossible... so was keeping him.
I was taking my daughter and leaving, determined to give her a quieter life.
But Beckett Cruz had never taken no for an answer.
And he wasn't about to take mine.

What happens in Vegas... might just keep you there.

✿ Excerpt ✿


"Beck?" I managed to get his name out just before he opened the front door.

"Yeah?" He spun back to face me, his dark eyes unreadable.

I turned my face to the side so I could see him fully. "You don't have to go," I said softly. "You can stay. Only if you want to though."

He rubbed his hand down his face, his eyes never leaving mine, then walked back into the kitchen toward me. I stood up away from the fridge as he stopped right next to me.

Slowly, he touched his hand to my face, his fingertips teasing my hairline. His dark gaze searched mine, and my heart jumped into my throat as the usual tingles his touch sparked danced down my neck. Then, he slid his hand into my hair, allowing the blonde strands to fall away from his fingertips.

"Do I want to go home to my big-ass house with its cold emptiness?" he asked in a low voice. "Or go to the club where half the girls there still see me as a mountain to be conquered? Not particularly, Blondie. I'd rather stay here. Even if there will be a demand for movies and water and foot rubs from a tiny, sick person."

"You can." My voice was quiet, like his. Even if my internal screams from self-preservation and vulnerability were deafeningly loud as they told me I was a fool, that he had to go, that this would never be enough for him.

"Do you want me to?" His question was... honest.

Raw.

Hesitant.

Like he didn't want me to answer.

"Do I want you to stay here in my tiny house so my daughter can fall more in love with you than she already is? Not really. But..." Don't be a fool, Cassie. Don't admit you want him to stay. He's just going to hurt you. "I don't exactly want you to go either."

"For her, or for you?"

"I don't want to answer that question."

"If I kissed you right now, would you ram your knee into my cock?"

"I'd briefly consider it, but I probably wouldn't do it."

His lips twitched to the side. "You just answered the question."

Then, of course, he cupped the back of my head, and he kissed me. It was slow, sweet, gentle. And I didn't consider kneeing him in the balls for a single second.

Beck pulled back and trailed his hand down my arm before he finally let me go. "I'm going home to get changed and then come back. Do you need anything while I'm gone? For CiCi? You?"

"I don't..." I sighed and chewed back my pride. "I meant to go to the store today after work to get some stuff like bread, milk... important stuff. But now I can't."

"I can get it. Just tell me what you need."

I bit the inside of my lip, then nodded. "Okay. Let me write it down." I walked through into the front room with him hot on my heels and grabbed the notebook and pen from under the coffee table. A few things were already scrawled down, so I added a couple more things, including more medicine. I tore the sheet off the notebook, stood, then gave it to Beck. "Let me get my wallet."

He grabbed my wrist, stopping me. "I'm not taking your money."

I lifted my gaze to his. "You can't pay for my groceries."

"I can and I will."

"You can't and you won't."

"I can and I will."

"You can't and you won't."

"I can do this all day, baby. I'm stubborn as fuck." His eyes told me he wasn't lying. "And we all know I'm a brat about the word no. So, I can, I will, and I'm going to. If I can't help you by buying a measly eight items, I'm an asshole who shouldn't be allowed around other people."

"You can't buy my groceries," I repeated. It was a lame argument. I was going to lose, but I'd fight until I went down.

Beck's eyes twinkled as he leaned in. "Don't worry. If you really want to pay me back, I'll take a blow job. I imagine your lips around my cock will be a pretty good thank you."

My jaw dropped as he backed off with a wink.

"Mouth open already, Cassie? Enthusiasm. I like that."

I snapped my jaw shut and glared at him. "You're a dirty pig."

"I know. But I've got fifty bucks that says you'll be sucking my dick by bedtime. If you don't agree..." He shrugged one shoulder, his lips curved in that dangerous smirk.

"If you're lucky, I'll bite it."

"I'll take that as I'm in for a good time."

One more wink, complete with expanding grin, and he was gone.

Motherfucking asshole.

✾ Synopsis ✾


What do you get when you mix a bachelorette party, the queen of dating disasters, and a stripper so hot he was forged from the fires of hell? Screwed. You get screwed...

Cocky. Commanding. Powerful. Relentless.

Those four words all summed up West Rykman perfectly.

So did filthy, dirty, sexy, and addictive.

He was supposed to be my one night stand…not my new marketing client.

He was definitely not supposed to be back inside my pants, not that anybody told him that.

I knew one thing: What West Rykman wanted, West Rykman got.

And he wanted me.

What happens in Vegas… might just make you stay.
