Blog Tour for Deep by Kylie Scott

Excerpt #1

“C’mon. How have you been, really? What’s been going on with you?” he pushed. I frowned at him and he frowned right back. “Liz, please.”

I groaned in defeat. “All right, I suck.”

“Why do you suck?”

“So very many reasons.” I pushed my hair back from my face—no more hiding. “Pregnancy sucks. It’s natural, my ass. I finally stop throwing up, but I’m tired all the time. Giving up coffee was horrendous. None of my clothes fit right because of these stupid breasts, and they ache constantly. I have to pee like every thirty seconds, and then to top it off, I cry every time the Healthy Hound ad comes on. It’s ridiculous”

Little wrinkles appeared either side of his nose. “You cry at a dog food ad?”

“Yes. The puppies jump all over each other to get to their mother and it’s just so beautiful, with their cute little tails wagging and everything.”

He just stared at me.

“I know its psycho, Ben. Believe me, I’m well aware of this.”

“Hey, it’s fine.” He covered a smile with his hand. Too late, the bastard.

“You try dealing with all these hormones going apeshit. Crap. Apeshoot.”

“Apeshoot?”

“I’m trying not to swear,” I explained. “You want the first word our child comes out with to be something bad?”

“No. Gotcha.” The man was incredibly bad at hiding a grin. “No swearing.”

Nickea's Review of Becoming His Master by M.Q. Barber

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

description

Becoming His Master is the prequel story to the Neighborly Affection series. This is the story of how Jay and Henry met.

'Henry recognizes the dangers of a relationship built on hero worship.'

Henry Webb takes on damaged and somewhat traumatized sub, Jay Kress. The latest victim of Calvin Gardner's sadistic pleasures. A new sub who is full of energy, eager to please and desperate to find a master. Even though his experiences with previous Masters have all been disappointing and unsatisfying, they each lead him to the latest encounter which left him broken and bleeding. After being saved by Henry himself, Jay is determined to submit to him.

Henry is given the task to show Jay that being a submissive can be fulfilling and safe without resulting to extreme measures to please his master. When his friend and owner of the club asks him to take on Jay as a sub, Henry is apprehensive. He doesn't want to remind Jay of the ordeal he went through but at the same time is passionate about keeping him safe and teaching him the proper ways about getting his true desires met. Henry has no respect for men or women who ignore the use of a safe word. Which only makes Henry more determined to get through to Jay. The attraction between the two is instant and Henry has a hard time not blurring the lines, but being the ever consummate professional, gets the original task done. It's not easy though because Jay refuses to think of his needs first and has almost no limits or boundaries. He is rather more worried with being what he thinks his master wants, Henry becomes frustrated and increasingly worried. Henry had a tough task before him. He needed to constantly reinforce safe and consensual play with the new sub. Jay needed to be taught that he had the right to refuse play and that he should respect the gift he had to offer. First Henry felt he needed to be on equal footing with Jay in order to successfully show him the joys of true submission.

Step 1. 'Questioning and negotiations before submission and play. Retraining without room for misunderstanding. Instill caution and confidence.'

I like the kind of Dom that Henry is. He's experienced, confident and intelligent. Caring and strong. He gets his point across without being demeaning or cruel. Henry is possessive, protective and passionate with Jay. He truly cares for the sub and his safety. Not only does he put Jay's needs above his own but he cared enough to show/guide Jay into proper submission. Making sure that Jay will be safe and appreciated with other Masters in the future. Henry never wanted to take advantage of the fragile state that Jay is in or get to personally involved in his life. Mostly because he was afraid of his strong desires for Jay. He felt for both their sanity's, he had to keep his attraction for the boy away from the lessons. It was frustrating watching Henry deny himself and Jay. I understood his reasoning but I really wanted him to live a little. Jay showed his desire for Henry and gave him consent at almost every turn. But Henry is to honorable to cross those lines

Step 2. Help Jay redirect his energy towards discovering his own sources of satisfaction

During the two month journey that Henry takes them through, self discovery for both parties is present. It both scares and enlightens them to there true desires. Finding everything they want and need in each other. Finding a Master for the care, the approval and the protection. And being a submissive who will be cherished for wanting to wholeheartedly serve his Master.

Step 3. Let Jay into his home and heart. 'His home served as his private sanctuary and his studio.' Not even his close friends, Victor and Emma or Will have ever stepped foot into his home.

'Jay jumped to obey. As eager as if he'd been born for it. For me.' It was nice to see Henry finally heed his own advice and wisdom about Dom/Sub relationships. And notice the gift that Jay was giving him. Nobody was better suited for Jay then Henry and vise versa. Jay was made for him, and once he stopped fighting it, finally stopped trying to release Jay to other Dominants and claimed Jay for himself, their relationship blossomed and there HEA finally fell into place.

Step 4. Become His Master.

'Having someone to look after fulfilled him in a way a short term liaison did not.' It was a commitment that interrupted his routine. Took much effort but was well worth the time and energy. Jay is beautiful in his submission. It's all consuming for him. Every attention or touch from Henry is like coming home for the sub. He's loyal, focused, enthusiastic and wanton. These qualities capture Henry unlike any other. They soften him, open him up and change him for the better. Allowing him to see his love and pride for his sub. As long as Henry continues to cherish, protect and lead him, Jay is more than happy to continue worming his way into his Masters heart.

Release Day and 5 star Reveiw for Jake Understood by Penelope Ward



From the New York Times bestselling author of Jake Undone, comes a full-length standalone companion novel and sequel.

A different side to the story: Jake’s side.

“We’re getting a new roommate,” 
they said.

I thought nothing of it...until she walked in the door. Her hand trembled in mine as she looked at me with fearful eyes. My entire world spun on its axis.

Nina...

It was a mismatch made in heaven: innocent girl from the boonies moves in with tattooed, pierced, badboy engineer.

I came up with a bet, a plan to tutor her in math and coach her through her phobias. What I wasn’t betting on was becoming addicted to her.
But I was living a double life on weekends, and once she found out about it, she’d be gone.

I had to protect myself and that meant one thing: I couldn’t fall in love.

In Jake Understood, pivotal scenes from Jake Undone are retold from Jake’s point of view combined with all-new material from both the past and present time where Jake Undone left off. It can stand alone but if both books are read, should follow Jake Undone. Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.

Blog Tour for The Gloves Off Series by L.P Dover


Title: The Gloves Off Series
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Sports Romance

A Fighter's Desire is an introductory prequel novella to the Gloves Off series. If you love sexy, MMA fighters you don't want to miss out on the hardcore, tap out action with my twins, Ryley and Camden. They're ready to get down and dirty on the mat.** The conclusion to their stories will be coming soon in their full length novels.

Two is always better than one.

What would you do if you were given the chance to spend the night with not one, but two fighters? Would you do it? Could you open yourself up to the pleasures they offered and do exactly what they said in order to pass on to the next round?
It was common knowledge that Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were in the ring. The only problem was that if you didn’t pass their test on the first night, then you didn’t proceed to the next round. They loved a good fight, and that's what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren.

Ashleigh knew what was going to happen when the twins approached her with a proposition, and needless to say, she knew exactly how to handle them … or so she thought. The rules had changed, and in order to get them both she had to first spend one night with each and last until they were done with her. It was a proposition she couldn’t refuse, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. However, it was one that she was going to enjoy.

4 stars
Well I'm a sucker for books about Alpha male fighters. In this novella you not only get one but two hotties. Camden and Ryley are MMA fighters who happen to be twin brothers.These brothers are known to share everything and that includes their women.  Camden and Ryley set their sites on Ashleigh. The brother's approach Ashleigh with a proposition she cant refuse. I really think Ryley will be my favorite in this fighters series . I love him and Ashleigh together I think they have great chemistry, their a perfect match. This is my first book from this author and I'm really digging it. The story right away had my attention, its and addictive read. I think the author did an amazing job, it was not so predicable. I like a book that throws me off. I cant wait to see where this story goes and what happens because honestly I'm sitting here like "what just happened" . L.P. Dover ends the novella keeping you wanting more. This is an easy 4 stars.

When faced with a challenge, it’s best to pool your resources.

Liam Mattson used to play his wife’s body like a fine violin. Until a logging accident dampened his fine motor skills and rendered his legs—and the most important part of his below-the-waist playground—useless.

If only Liam would throw himself into therapy with the same vigor he used to throw her into bed, Ivy is sure he’d fully recover. But lately she’s felt adrift, while he’s stuck in self-pity and pre-occupation with a serious threat to his logging business.

When Ward Bose returns from the backwoods, Liam isn’t blind to the heated, guilty glances between his best friend and his wife. And he takes a step he never could have taken if his legs were working—ask Ward to service Ivy in bed.

The moment the three come together, Ward’s heartstrings are tied in knots, and Liam holds them in his fist. But secrets they’re each keeping could tear them all apart…unless they can find a way to share their burdens as easily as they share their love.
