What happened backstage, didn’t always stay backstage ... in Nashvegas. 

Music Row star, Jason Jones loved three things— his dog, ice-cold beer, and gorgeous redheads. His life sounded like a country song ... and he had the baggage to prove it. One minute he was onstage crooning to a flame-haired goddess, and then he was backstage giving her an encore she’d never forget. 

Neither would he ... 

Hot mess express, Dorothy Elizabeth Prudence was a nurse by day and lonely by night. With a name like that, she never got laid. That was about to change, thanks to her “wing-woman” bestie. 

Hitting Nashville’s Music Row for a wild night had seemed like an excellent idea. She was only looking for a good time but found a lot more than she bargained for. 

They both did …

That’s some other romance author. The poor thing probably has to sneak away upstairs to write her dirty stories! What would her family think? Thankfully, that’s not Kat!

Happy Birthday BIKER BABE by Audrey Carlan!!! #EroticRomance #MC #series #Novella #Giveaway








Title: Biker Babe
Series: Biker Beauties #1
Author: Audrey Carlan
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: November 11, 2019



Blurb

From Audrey Carlan, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Calendar Girl series.

Princess. That’s what the club calls me. I’m not frilly, into pink, or expect a man to woo me with chocolates and flowers. I don’t need candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach.

I’m not the girl you take home to your parents. I like wild, fun, and good times. I’m the kind of girl you put on the back of your bike and ride through the night…in more ways than one.

I like the wind in my hair and the open road before me. I was born a biker princess and I’ll be one until the day I die. The man in my life can try to tame me, but he’ll have one hell of a fight on his hands. Though if he wins, he’ll get the ultimate prize…all of me. Devoted. His old lady through thick and thin.

So when I opened my store, aptly named Biker Babe, I didn’t expect to have the biggest, sexiest, most jaw-dropping man walk into my shop and set my world on fire. I wanted him instantly. The only problem, my father is the president of the Hero’s Pride MC, and Taggart “Rex” Crawford is his new Vice President.

Our Pride likes to live wild and ride free but everyone knows the President’s daughter is off-limits.

The Biker Beauties are a collection of interconnected standalone novellas. They can be read out of order if desired. They are high in heat but don’t forget the sweet.

WES
When I was a kid, my dad was the gardener for the richest man in town. His daughter, Lily Barnes, told me she could never like a guy like me. Then she kissed me and told me it would never happen again. When it happened again, she told me she could never love me because she was going to leave this place, and I would never leave my dad. We were never quite friends, not exactly enemies, and we could never quite stop secretly kissing each other. She never said goodbye before running off to try to make it as an actress. That was her dream, and I wanted her to chase it. Okay, maybe I hated her for it, just a little. Now she’s back, with no money and even more sass. A lot has changed around here … except for my hidden feelings about Lily Barnes.   

LILY
So, it turns out I’m a terrible actress and now I’m back! When my father offers me a job at his company, I actually think he’s finally decided I’m worthy of one day taking over the family business. Imagine my surprise when I find out that the gardener’s son is the one who’s being groomed to take over, and I’ve been assigned to work for him. Wes Carver has always been rich in confidence and abs, but now he’s rich in everything, including disdain for yours truly. If he thinks I’m not built to work, he’s wrong. If he thinks he can boss me around just because he’s my boss, he’s delusional. If he thinks I’m still the girl who could never love him … I may be a better actress than anyone thought.

 MY REVIEW:
   
I was so excited to get to have this be an audiobook as part of a blog tour.  Audiobooks are my favorite way to 'read' these days quite often and BACK FOR MORE did not disappoint. The characters of Wes and Lily were fantastic!  They played off one another so well, especially in their awkward situation of her being the bosses daughter but Wes being her boss while her Dad was trying to teach her a lesson and Wes and Lily having the hots - no make that the chills - no make that a burning, no raging fever for one another that had never really been acted upon.  Whew!

The story was largely written in the first person which always makes a story seem so much more personal to me, don't you think?  Of course, we h-a-v-e to talk about the sex, right?  Their entire relationship is so filled with passion.  Seriously, those were some of the most passionate lovemaking scenes I have almost personally experienced while reading a book. 😍

However, I would be completely remiss if I did not mention Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright who had the unenviable task of narrating this book.  Two more perfect, heartfelt and enthusiastic narrators could never have been found for this story. If you love people having first love/office romances, second chances, loads of family drama, amazing passion and hysterical BFFs, this is the book for you.  

Story:  5❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Heat:   4🔥🔥🔥🔥

Narration:  5❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Overall:  5❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️


I was given this free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.







 




ABOUT THE AUTHOR  



Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. 

In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn't allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. 

Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

BRITISH BANGER by Jennifer Woodhull #CockyHeroClub #CoverReveal #Adult #ContemporaryRomance #Giveaway



Squeee!  This is a part of theThe Cocky Hero Club!  (See the goat?)  It's my first and I'm tickled to present it here to you on it's very own COVER REVEAL DAY!!!



British Banger
by Jennifer Woodhull
Publication date: TBA
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Camden
Takeovers are my business.
Six months in Rhode Island would be more than enough time to wrap up my latest deal and I’d get to spend some time with my baby sister Calliope while I was at it. Then, I could get back to my life in London—the greatest city in the world.
My extended stay in America became a little more interesting when I met the estate agent assigned to help me find a place to live. With long, chestnut hair and fiery eyes that betrayed every emotion, Quinn seemed to hate everything about me, but sparring with her quickly became my favorite sport.
By the time I found a place to live, I had convinced her to help me christen it properly.
It was just meant to be good fun.
As days turn to weeks, I find myself missing London less. I may be the king of takeovers, but Quinn’s taking over more of my thoughts and feelings than I ever could’ve imagined.
Quinn
British accents should come with a warning label. When they’re attached to deep, baritone voices that belong to sexy, cocky men, you should have to sign a waiver.
Most people wouldn’t touch short-term rental properties, but since my business partner took off with my client list, I need every deal I can get. Enter, one insanely sexy and completely exasperating Camden Reid.
The smug executive found fault with every property I showed him. Too cramped. Too feminine. Too far from a decent pub.
His demands were ridiculous, and I couldn’t wait to be rid of him and his British bangers.
Somewhere between the first property and the zillionth, though, my attraction to Camden grew impossible to ignore.
His insane demands finally met, the arrogant Adonis proposed we christen his new temporary home.
Little did I know how addicted I’d become, or just how unforgettable my time with Camden would be.
After all, I knew we had an expiration date.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

MONTANA MISTLETOE by Kim Law #ContemporaryRomance #Giveaway #Excerpt #SecondChances

Montana Mistletoe 
Kim Law 
Publication date: July 6th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

She has the chance to create the future she wants . . . but first she’ll have to face her past.

Young, vibrant, and willing to confront any obstacle in her path, Bree Yarbrough has spent the last few years traveling the world and learning from the great artists. Only, her work has yet to strike a lasting chord. When her hometown mentor reaches out with an opportunity that will set her on the path to success, she knows she can’t say no. But once back in Silver Creek, she discovers she isn’t the only one who’s returned home. Justin Cory has as well—and he’s living next door. She may have made a fool of herself over him before, but Bree isn’t the kind of girl to let past mortification stand in the way of something she wants.

The last ten years of Justin Cory’s life has been driven by one focus: go to school, get his physical therapy degree, and return home so he can be there for his mom. But now that he’s back, he can’t stop thinking about the night that changed his life forever—and the guilt he can’t escape. Fun, irresistible, and once-best-friend Bree seems like the perfect distraction. She isn’t sticking around past the holidays, so he doesn’t have to worry she’ll expect more than he can give. But as they spend the season together, stolen mistletoe kisses start to feel all too right. However, with the future uncertain and the past hanging over them, it may take more than mistletoe to get from Christmas to forever.

EXCERPT:

“Bree.”

Speak of the devil.

She steeled her resolve before turning to face him. “Justin.” She didn’t know what else to say.

He didn’t seem to have any ideas for conversation either, as after he locked his gaze on hers, he then turned and stared at the blank wall on the other side of the room. She didn’t follow suit. Instead, she watched him. And she told herself not to think about how good he looked. Or how much she’d missed him in the last three and a half years.

He sported a trim beard now that was just a touch shorter than his dark hair. His lips were still both a firm slash under a straight nose and as sinfully gentle-looking and kissable as they’d always been. 

And his lashes remained long, thick, and insanely sexy around his soulful hazel eyes.

Geez, she could so fall under the spell of this man again.

Geez . . . she so had to get a grip, or the next six weeks were going to be both mentally painful as well as sexually frustrating.

She rolled her eyes. She wouldn’t let the latter happen no matter what. Because she was over him. It only took one time of offering herself to a man and having him turn her down—while he also pointed out that if sex did happen, it would be nothing more than sex—for her to get a clue. Justin Cory wasn’t for her, and she wasn’t for him. End of story.

“Mom tells me you haven’t given her a decision yet.” Justin finally spoke, and as he did, those soulful, see-too-much eyes turned back to her.

“You’ve talked to her?” She’d only been gone from Mrs. Cory’s office for three minutes.

“She texted as soon as you left. Says I have to make sure you stay in town.”

At this, Bree lifted her brows. “You have to make sure?” Why on earth would that be the case?
He lifted a shoulder. “She seems to think it’s my fault that you never come home for more than a couple of days.”

It was.

And my fault that you left in the first place.”

Bree stared at him, unwilling to agree to either statement. “And here I always thought of your mother as a smart woman.”

At her reply, Justin merely blinked.

“You know that I’d always intended to leave,” she pointed out. She also fervently hoped he’d forgotten that she’d also once offered to leave with him.

“That’s what I told Mom.”

“Then I don’t understand why you’re even standing here.”

His jaw tensed, and his eyes went flat like they had Friday night. “I’m standing here because my mother asked me to. Can I tell her your answer is yes?”

He could tell his mother anything he wanted to. But she wasn’t telling him a thing.
