Title: Pucked Over
Author: Helena Hunting
Series: Pucked #3

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N | BookDepo
Lily LeBlanc isn’t versed in the art of casual sex, but after seven years in an on-again, off-again relationship, she’s definitely willing to give it a shot. And who better to try it with than her best friend’s boyfriend’s best friend? What could possibly go wrong? Nothing at all.

NHL player, Randy Ballistic, lives up to his last name on the ice and in the bedroom. His best friend and teammate has recently given up the puck bunnies and traded them in for a real girlfriend. And she just happens to have a seriously feisty, extra-hot best friend on the rebound. Randy’s more than happy to be Lily’s spring board back into the dating scene.

Casual sex is only casual until those pesky things called emotions get involved. Once that happens, someone’s bound to gets pucked over.

I don’t know what the deal with the Pucked series is but I can’t seem to stop reading these books. They are seriously addictive!

Enter Randy Ballistic, super-HOT NHL player and Miller’s best friend. Meet Lily LeBlanc, Sunny’s best friend. Having just walked out of a seven years relationship, Lily is not really looking for anything serious and there is no one who qualifies better for the position of a no strings attached relationship than Randy. Randy loves women but as soon as feelings get involved, he’s out. Afraid to end up like his father and his inability to commit, Randy prefers not to get too close with any woman. And that’s exactly what Lily is looking for!

Keep thing casual and the moments feelings get involved they both walk away. How hard can it be?

Pucked over was PUCKING awesome! Lily is not the kind of girl Randy is used to but they can’t seem to stop their “bathroom encounters”, aka hot, steamy, hook ups. Lily and Randy were two amazingly awesome characters who you’re definitely going to fall in love with!

I’m hoping Lance is next! I’m really looking forward to reading his story especially after what went done with Tash!

stuck - up suit cover.jpg
It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he was…God?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery man’s phone for days—until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.
So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk’s office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didn’t expect him to text back.
I didn’t expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn’t expect to fall for him—all before we even met.
The two of us couldn’t have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract—we consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

Blog Tour ~ Review & Excerpt: Mated in Mist (Talon Pack #3) by Carrie Ann Ryan

Posted on Monday, February 22, 2016 11:58 AM

Title: Mated in Mist
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Series: Talon Pack #3

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N
The Talon Pack continues with an outcast witch and a wolf who can see past the darkness.

As Heir to the Talon Pack, Ryder Brentwood carries the responsibility of not only protecting his Pack, but ensuring its future. Only no one knows that as he does this, he must also shield his people from their past. When a witch with no ties bursts into his life, he must decide if he can overcome the depravity of his secrets and trust the one person who could break the fragile hold on his control.
Grieving over the loss of her twin and on the run from the unknown, Leah Helm knows she is far more alone than she thought possible. Her coven shunned her before she was born and the wolves she sought protection with are in a war of their own. When a wolf with a whisper of secrets is forced to work with her in order to protect their people, she finds she might not be so alone after all.
The world knows more than they ever have before about those shrouded in darkness, while Ryder and Leah are thrust into the center of a conflict they never should have been part of to begin with. On their journey they must not only fight those against them, but the burning temptation that is flaring between them. Fate might have paved their path, but that doesn’t mean they have to follow.
The third book in the Talon Pack tells the story of Ryder Brentwood, heir to the Talon Pack and Leah Helm, a water witch.

As the heir to the Talon Pack, Ryder is responsible for the protection and safety of the pack. But when the protection of the pack is compromised by the beautiful witch, Ryder does not seem able to push her away!

Hunted by humans who just realized that witches are real, Leah is exhausted and desperate. Shunned by the witches and on the run from the humans Leah and her twin brother, Roland have only each other to depend on until Leah loses him as well. Leah has nothing left to loose and nothing left to fight for. Until Ryder!

I really liked how in sync Ryder and Leah were. They worked together perfectly, there was much tension between them from their first encounter, they were protective of each other and above everything there was a connection between them even if neither wanted to admit it.

Mated in mist was a beautiful story of two broken people who healed each other. I’m glad I followed Leah and Ryder’s journey to the end. I can’t wait for Charlotte and Bram’s story! These two broke my heart and I can hope Carrie Ann Ryan will do something about it!

*ARC provided in exchange for an honest review*

Excerpt

“Is he staring?” Leah asked.

Charlotte’s eyes danced and she looked over Leah’s shoulder. “No, but he was earlier.”

So Ryder wasn’t looking at her, but he had been. That sounded about right. He kept changing his damn mind. First he’d pushed her away before he kissed her. Then he’d said he wouldn’t mate her, but damn well claimed her in the Coven meeting. She still wasn’t sure what that had meant or exactly what the others had thought, but it had meant something. She wasn’t Pack, but he’d still said she was his. Or, at least, theirs. It wasn’t as if she wanted to marry him and have his babies, but it would be nice if he would make his choice and stick to it.

She’d told herself years ago she wouldn’t have children and wouldn’t find a man to live her life with. She’d always thought her twin would be able to do that despite the danger, but that wasn’t for her. She hadn’t wanted her bloodline to continue with her, not with all the pain she’d lived with for so long.

But letting her hands run along that wolf’s body as they both panted with need wouldn’t be such a bad thing.

Her cheeks heated, and Charlotte raised a brow at her.

“Interesting place your thoughts went, I would think.” She smiled and her whole face brightened. The woman was absolutely beautiful, though there was a sadness in her eyes that she couldn’t quite hide. Leah knew what Bram saw in the woman, though he, like Ryder, did his best not to stare for too long.

If Leah had planned to stay within the den for any amount of time, she might have asked Charlotte what the story was behind that, but she couldn’t. She didn’t know her future and what path she would take. Therefore, making friends and promises wasn’t for her. It hadn’t been the case for more years than she cared to count.

“Leah? Are you okay?”

About Carrie Ann:

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.

FADE INTO YOU NOW AVAILABLE.jpg

Meet bad boy rocker Wyatt in Fade Into You. 

This new rock star romance by Tracy Wolff is NOW LIVE! #shakendirty

AVAILABLE ON ALL RETAILERS:






fade in to you cover.jpg
A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
She’s one addiction he can’t resist.
Wyatt Jennings has been called a lot of things by the media. Bad-boy rocker. Intense drummer. Addict.
Finally out of rehab and desperate for a fresh start, Wyatt rejoins his mega-platinum rock band Shaken Dirty as they prepare for their world tour. But Wyatt’s demons are never far behind, always nipping at his heels for one. More. Fix.
Enter Poppy Germaine, the band’s new social media consultant. A beautiful bombshell who somehow manages to get underneath Wyatt’s skin, Poppy’s an addiction Wyatt can get behind. And even though she’s with the label—and therefore off-limits—he craves her. Needs her.
Except Poppy isn’t actually a social media consultant. She’s the daughter of the label’s CEO, sent undercover to babysit Wyatt and keep him from falling off the wagon again. Proving herself to her father is Poppy’s only goal—until she finds herself in Wyatt’s bed. But if Wyatt discovers the truth, it could send him spiraling all over again…
fade into you teaser.png
Review:
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The third book in the Shaken Dirty series tells Wyatt and Poppy’s story!

The Shaken Dirty band has had enough of Wyatt’s addiction and so has Wyatt. He hopes that his third time in rehab may do the trick. Well it might as well, since the moment Poppy Germaine enters his life, Wyatt is to become addicted to a different kind of drug, love.

Fade into you, was a realistic book about love but mainly about the temptation to relapse after a fight with addiction to heroine. It’s hard to fight something like that alone but Wyatt has a lot of different people who really care about him and are not afraid to show him the lengths they would go to keep him heroine-free!

Poppy and Wyatt were so interesting characters. Each had their own share of secrets and demons of their past, especially Wyatt. The tension between them was HOT but it was not until they were completely honest with each other that I felt there was no boundary between them. That’s the moment I fell in love with them!

Fade into you was an incredible book. It was hot, it was emotional, and it was realistic. Wolff is an amazing author and I can’t wait to read more books from her!

Excerpt #3 

For a man who’d spent years, decades, running from his emotions, it was a strange place to find himself. It scared him.

She scared him.

Eyes still closed, he laid down the first of the drum fills, adding a few extra flourishes because that’s how he was hearing it in his head. Played through the whole song from memory, then did it again and again, embellishing it a little more each time through.

It didn’t take long for his arms and pecs to start aching—it had been too long since he’d played the drums on a daily basis—but he played through it, pounding away at the skins with everything he had in him.

Fourth time through the song, he switched to “Closer,” then to “In the A.M.,” then to “Deified.” By the time he’d run through those a couple of times, his biceps were burning, his hands throbbing. And still he didn’t stop.

Instead, he switched on the recorder he always kept next to his drum kit and started wailing away, playing the beat that had been in his head since he’d seen Poppy waiting for him in her doorway last night, arms open and face welcoming. The melody had started then, in the back of his head, and by the time he’d had her up against the wall it had been a towering crescendo of drumbeats that he couldn’t ignore even if he’d wanted to.

Which he hadn’t. It had been too long since music had burned inside him like that.

He played the song through the way he heard it, keeping a fast thirty-two-beat rhythm on the hi-hat while he worked the snare, the bass, and the floor tom in alternating rhythms. It sounded good, really good, and as he banged out a long, elaborate fill on the toms and crash cymbals, he knew he was onto something.

Though all he was doing was laying down the beat, he could hear the song in his head so clearly. Jared coming in with a quiet but pure guitar presence while Quinn took front and center with his keyboards. Bass—whoever the fuck that turned out to be—would hang back with Wyatt, playing low to underscore. And Ryder…fuck, Ryder’s voice would own this song. He would destroy it. Just the thought sent excitement rioting through him.

Usually, Wyatt and Quinn were the music guys, while Ryder and Jared did most of the lyrics. Every once in a while, though, a song would come to him fully formed, like “Seventeen Again” had, an early version of the lyrics tearing through his head even as he pounded away at the drums.

This song was like that, the words running through his brain like a rain-swollen river, pouring out of him as fast and powerfully as the music had. Even knowing they weren’t perfect, he sang them aloud, let the recorder get every syllable.

When it was over, he ran through the song over and over again while everything was still fresh in his mind. Playing and singing, singing and playing, until his shirt was drenched in sweat and his arms felt like they were going to fall off.

And still he played. Still he wailed away at the drums like the demons of hell were after him. Or worse, like the sins of his past had finally caught up to him after all the years he’d run and all the drugs he’d used to keep them at bay.

And maybe they had. Maybe they had.

Since he couldn’t do anything about it, he played instead.

Long after sweat rolled into his eyes and poured down his face.

Long after his shoulders and biceps and pecs cramped up.

Long, long after blisters formed between his fingers.

He played and played and played, like these drums were the only thing standing between him and hell. And like getting this one song right was his only chance at salvation.

At one point, the blister on his right index finger cracked open and started to bleed. He grabbed one of the clean towels he always kept next to the kit, tore a strip off it, and kept playing. When his left index finger followed suit a couple of minutes later, he did the same thing. And then he played through that, too.

The pain was there, his nerve endings sending agonized alerts to his brain, but he ignored them. Compartmentalized them. Put them in a part of his brain he didn’t need to access to play, and then concentrated on the music. On the beat. Right now, it was the only thing that mattered.

About the Author
Tracy Wolff

tracy wolff.jpg

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where--and sometimes who--she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story--something with a rainbow and a prince--and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she'd read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she'd found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes contemporary romance and erotic romance as Tracy Wolff, paranormal romance and urban fantasy as Tessa Adams and young adult novels as Tracy Deebs.

WAITING ON WEDNESDAY #80 The Last Days of Magic by Mark Tompkins

Posted on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 3:01 PM

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine and is where we can talk about books we are looking forward to being released.

Title: The Last Days of Magic
Author: Mark Tompkins
Series: None

Expected publication: March 1st 2016

Goodreads
An epic novel of magic and mysticism, Celts and faeries, mad kings and druids, and the goddess struggling to reign over magic’s last outpost on the Earth
What became of magic in the world? Who needed to do away with it, and for what reasons? Drawing on myth, legend, fairy tales, and Biblical mysteries, The Last Days of Magic brilliantly imagines answers to these questions, sweeping us back to a world where humans and magical beings co-exist as they had for centuries.
Aisling, a goddess in human form, was born to rule both domains and—with her twin, Anya—unite the Celts with the powerful faeries of the Middle Kingdom. But within medieval Ireland interests are divided, and far from its shores greater forces are mustering. Both England and Rome have a stake in driving magic from the Emerald Isle. Jordan, the Vatican commander tasked with vanquishing the remnants of otherworldly creatures from a disenchanted Europe, has built a career on such plots. But increasingly he finds himself torn between duty and his desire to understand the magic that has been forbidden.
As kings prepare, exorcists gather, and divisions widen between the warring clans of Ireland, Aisling and Jordan must come to terms with powers given and withheld, while a world that can still foster magic hangs in the balance. Loyalties are tested, betrayals sown, and the coming war will have repercussions that ripple centuries later, in today’s world—and in particular for a young graduate student named Sara Hill.

Release Party, Excerpt & Giveaway: Darkly, Deeply, Beautifully (Ceruleans #5) by Megan Tayte

Posted on Tuesday, February 16, 2016 12:33 PM
1
DARKNESS HAS FALLEN, AND SHE ALONE WILL SEE THE LIGHT.

With her mother’s life hanging in the balance, Scarlett is devastated – and done with being in the dark. She wants answers, all of them.

But when was her pursuit of the truth ever straightforward?

Pulling a single thread impels a great unravelling. And each revelation will force Scarlett to rethink what she thought she knew about the Ceruleans, the Fallen, her family – herself.

All that came before was a mere prelude to this, the last journey. From London to Twycombe to Hollythwaite to Cerulea, Scarlett will be stalked by the ghosts of what has been, what may have been and what may come to pass. Until she reaches the place where it all began, and it all must end.

But in the final reckoning, none will survive unscathed. And some will not survive at all.

In this explosive conclusion to The Ceruleans series, all must be defined by their actions: sinner, saint… or something more beautiful entirely?

Excerpt 

I kissed Luke then. I kissed him. Like I hadn’t kissed him in more than a week – since before London, since before Hollythwaite, since Barcelona: when we’d been just a regular couple on a city break, wrapped up in each other. Through the kiss I heard his sigh, the release of emotion. And then he pulled me to him, onto his lap, and I kissed his lips, his jaw, his collarbone, his shoulder, and he kissed my lips, my earlobe, my neck, my –

‘No!’

My robe had slipped, exposing my back, and I struggled off him and wrestled with the fabric entangled at my waist.

He stood up. Put his hands on my shoulders. Said my name with so much tenderness that I had to stop. Had to look at him. The room was steamy, the glass doors occluded. No one could see. Only him.

‘Trust me,’ he said.

I did.

Slowly, he turned me. I steeled myself as he took it in, the brand I now wore. Non Serviam. I will not serve. Emblazoned on my back in the form of angry, jagged scar tissue.

When I felt his lips on the nape of my neck, I jerked in shock. But his hands on my hips held me still as he traced the path of the scar, one kiss at a time, from its very top to its termination just above my bikini bottoms.

‘Beautiful,’ he said.

I turned to him. He smiled up at me.

Sinking down so that we were both kneeling, I said, ‘How could you…?’

‘How could I not?’ was his answer. ‘I was there, Scarlett. I saw what you did for your mother. That scar: it’s beautiful.’

‘But it’s a punishment, Luke. Because I sinned. That’s not beautiful. It’s dark. Wrong.’

‘No! Don’t you say that. Trying to save your mother – that could never be wrong. If I’d had the chance, I’d have done it. My mum, my dad, Cara… I’d have saved them all. And you. I would always save you.’

His eyes were glistening, and I lunged for him and hugged him hard.

‘So stop hiding it from me,’ he finished, his voice muffled in my hair. ‘Please. Because I love that scar on you so goddam much.’

I nodded into his shoulder and he squeezed me.

It was calm in our little haven. Still. Warm. Nothing existed but Luke and me. We held each other for a long time, drifting in the haze.

And then Luke sat back and said, ‘So, you and me. We’re good?’

‘We’re good,’ I told him. Then I frowned and added: ‘For now. You know, Gabe, the Fallen: I have no idea what we’re getting into.’

‘Me either.’ He reached out a finger and drew, in the condensation on the glass door, a little lightbulb. ‘But whatever lies ahead,’ he said, ‘it has to be better than living in the dark.’

RoomHate by Penelope Ward! 

AVAILABLE ON ALL RETAILERS:






roomhate cover.jpg
From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?
Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.
When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.
The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.
The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.
I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.
The worst part? He didn’t come alone
I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.
The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.

Author's note – RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Hurtling us into a realm of labyrinthine intrigue and consummate seduction, FEVERBORN is a riveting tale of ancient evil, lust, betrayal, forgiveness and the redemptive power of love.
When the immortal race of the Fae destroyed the ancient wall dividing the worlds of Man and Faery, the very fabric of the universe was damaged and now Earth is vanishing bit by bit. Only the long-lost Song of Making—a haunting, dangerous melody that is the source of all life itself—can save the planet.
But those who seek the mythic Song—Mac, Barrons, Ryodan and Jada—must contend with old wounds and new enemies, passions that burn hot and hunger for vengeance that runs deep. The challenges are many: The Keltar at war with nine immortals who’ve secretly ruled Dublin for eons, Mac and Jada hunted by the masses, the Seelie queen nowhere to be found, and the most powerful Unseelie prince in all creation determined to rule both Fae and Man. Now the task of solving the ancient riddle of the Song of Making falls to a band of deadly warriors divided among—and within—themselves.
Once a normal city possessing a touch of ancient magic, Dublin is now a treacherously magical city with only a touch of normal. And in those war-torn streets, Mac will come face to face with her most savage enemy yet: herself.
I waited a year for this book and I'm blown away! It definitely lived up on my expectations but just as the previous books in the series this is an *effing* cliffhanger as well! WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE COMING OUT?

Don’t read this review if you haven’t read the previous books in the series!

I have no words!!! Well I do but this was abso-f*cking-lutely BREATHTAKING! I think I’m in the majority of readers when I say that I was disappointed with Burned. When I read it, a year ago, I felt that it didn’t reflect the amazingness that the Fever series is! HOWEVER, Karen Marie Moning knew what she was doing when she was writing this one!!!!

The Hoar frost king is no longer a threat but the damage is already done. When he stole the Earth’s music frequency, the frequency that keeps all the living thing, well alive, he left behind black holes that threat the Earth’s future. The war is no longer between mortals and immortals but between death and survival. If they want to survive they will all have to “temporarily” work together to find the Song of Making.

Sounds easy but it’s really not! I forgot how much I loved the Fever world. Moning is a brilliant author with super amazing skills! You will get plenty of answers in this book but you will also get new mysteries. Worry not though, there is still more to come.

Some of you may think this is simply Jada’s story (aka Dani) but Moning is not yet done with Mac and Barrons and neither are we. Mac is no longer the woman we met in Darkfever. She’s stronger, more confident and part of Baroons world. Together they are unstoppable. I wasn’t so sure about their relationship in the previous book because it seemed a bit unstable but when you read Feverborn there is no question about their bond.

And of course let’s not forget about the series huge change, Jada. Mac and the Nine are unable to accept her but they quickly realize (thanks to the ever wonderful Dancer) that if they want their Dani back they will have to accept this part of hers. Truth be told, I had difficulty accepting her myself in the previous book but Feverborn is so different. We get a different Jada. She’s still cold and distant but she has vulnerabilities and a past (her time in Faery) that very much reminds of Dani’s own past. She really broke my heart in this book and Ryodan’s! FINALLY!!! Ryodan opens up about Dani. We get to see some really EPIC scenes between them but I think this is just a small part of what’s coming! Ryodan was AMAZING and I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m starting to love him more than I love Barrons. Team Ryodan all the way!!!

This isn’t just Mac, Barrons, Ryodan and Jada’s story. We get to not only see but also hear from the Highlanders, the Nine, Cristian and Dancer. After reading Feverborn, it’s so easy to forget my disappointment with Burned. This was beyond anything I expected to read. Ii devoured it! Action packed from the beginning till the end, Feverborn delivers the ultimately best story in the series! I’m dying to read MORE!!!

WAITING ON WEDNESDAY #79 Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine and is where we can talk about books we are looking forward to being released.

Title: Midnight Lily
Author: Mia Sheridan
Series: None

Expected publication: March 1st 2016
Holden Scott is the prince of professional football. At least he was before he lost it all . . . or more to the point, before he threw it all away. Now he's out of a job, out of the public's good graces, and perhaps just a little out of his mind. So when a friend offers up his remote lodge in the wilds of Colorado, giving Holden some time away to get his life back on track, he can hardly say no. The last thing he expects is to see a beautiful girl in the woods—one wearing a white, lace dress who appears in the moonlight, and leaves no footprints behind. Is she a dream? A ghost? A product of his muddled imagination? Or something entirely different?
Midnight Lily is the haunting love story of two lost souls reaching for each other in the dark. A tale of healing, acceptance, and the worlds we create to protect our own hearts. It is a story of being lost, of being found, and of being in the place between.
What are you waiting on Wednesday???
