      From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.   Growing up, the three of us were friends. He was the nerd. I was the playboy. She was the beauty.   Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. He lied.   I went off to college, and he got the girl. Amber never knew how I felt. They were together for years—before he broke her heart.   Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.   Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men. One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings. Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity. Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message. She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend— me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.) Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel. When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

Under The Lights
Bright Lights Duet #1
by Tia Louise

TLUndertheLightsBookCover5x8_BW_325

Heroes don’t last long around here…
Fall in love with the sexiest girl in New Orleans?
Check.
Prepare to die for her?
Double-check.
Larissa is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.
She’s the rising star of the Pussycat Angels, the hottest burlesque show in the French Quarter.
I’ll never forget the first time I saw her.
The curve of her breast outlined by sparkling rhinestones.
Slim hips wrapped in black fishnets.
Long, dark hair…
She’s the Dark Angel who stole my heart.
Her body is intoxicating, our love overwhelming.
Cat eyes and blood red lips.
Sizzling fingers on white-hot skin.
I couldn’t keep my hands off her…
But her fame had a dark side,
A sinister shadow lurking under the lights.
I would do anything to save her…
He would do anything to see me dead.


Excerpt:

“You’re so good.” Her voice is soft, and she traces her finger along the bandage before lifting her blue eyes to meet mine. “Thank you for buying me lunch. For saving me…” Without warning, she steps forward and wraps her arms around my waist, pressing her face against my chest, and I don’t hold back. She fits perfectly in my arms, and I inhale the sweet scent of her hair just before I press my lips to the top of her head. Her voice is muffled against my shirt. “It feels so safe here.” “Lara,” I whisper in her hair. “I want to keep you safe.” She pulls back, and I loosen my hold. But she doesn’t leave. She puts her hand against my cheek, lifting her chin as she rises higher on her toes. Hell if I make her work for it. Leaning forward, I capture her lips. They part, and our tongues meet, curling together as I hug her closer to me. She exhales a little noise, and her fingers thread in the sides of my hair. I trace a line with my lips to her ear. “I want you so much,” I whisper. She turns, searching for my mouth, and I kiss her. She fists my shirt in her hands, pulling it up and placing her palm against my bare stomach. I groan deeply, and my hands slide under her ass. I lift her against my chest, and her legs go around my waist. Our kisses are wildfire, fast-moving, lips pulling, hungry for something more. Something just within reach. She moving subtly against my waist, and the blood rushes downward. I’m hard and she’s riding me, stroking my erection with her crotch. “Lara,” I groan. Her lips still, and she holds my cheeks, looking into my eyes. “That night on the catwalk… The way you looked at me…” My brow collapses at the memory. “You’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.” “I only want you to see me.” Her lips are pink and swollen from my kisses. I lean forward and kiss her again, tasting her like she’s water in the desert. She exhales a little noise, and it’s a charge straight to my cock. I love her lips. I love her mouth. I want more. I want all of her. “Does your waist hurt?” She leans forward, running her nose along my jaw. “Nothing hurts. Everything is amazing.”

4.5 out of 5 Stars

The seedier side of New Orleans is the background to this dark romance.  Lara is barely surviving working at a "burlesque" show.  Added to her troubles is the fact she is protecting a thirteen-year-old orphan named Molly.  Men surrounding them in that business leer at them both, while Lara is trying her best to protect Molly from the pedophiles.

Mark accepts a job at the theatre because he has no other option.  No money, no family... he needs to eat and have a roof over his head.  Once he meets Lara, he falls hard for her.  She is an innocent caught in this web of malice that is the undercurrent at this theatre.  Her dreams to become a singer since it is the only thing she knows to do to earn a living, drive her and scare her at the same time.  This appeals to Mark's instinctual need to protect.  He swears to be there for her.

The forces of evil at this theatre all sum up to one scumbag~ Guy!  This is a man from which all humans should run and hide.  His depravity was more than I could stand.  

This is a strong, dark, and emotional series.  Not for the faint of heart.  Our author is very classy in how she depicts the horrors of the secrets kept at this theatre.  It is the subject matter that you must be cautioned about.

There is a sequel coming out on January 22nd.  I hope this story will give us the twist we need to reach a somewhat happy ending for these innocents caught in this web of evil.

I am voluntarily reviewing this book.  Thank you to the author for sharing a copy with me.

SEX, NOT LOVE
by Vi Keeland

Amazon | iBooks | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Google Play | Amazon Print | Audible

    My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards. We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction. I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me. We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number. I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home. I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems. Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose? Nothing, I thought. It’s just sex, not love. But you know what they say about the best-laid plans…  

    Vi Keeland is a #1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling author. With millions of books sold, her titles have appeared in over eighty Bestseller lists and are currently translated in nineteen languages. She lives in New York with her husband and their three children where she is living out her own happily ever after with the boy she met at age six.

Prince Charming by CD Reiss

Release Date: January 4th, 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

Keaton Bridge is exactly the kind of guy a straight-arrow like Cassie doesn’t need.
For one thing, he’s a criminal—and she fights crime for a living. And being criminally handsome isn’t helping her say no, either. Everything about him screams trouble, from his British accent to his mysterious past.
And Cassie doesn’t do trouble.
Keaton’s got his own trouble. He’s trying to go legit, and an FBI agent hanging around is the last thing that will help his credibility. All it took was one night of passion to sear her into his skin. Now he can’t imagine living happily ever after without her.
All they have to do is walk away.
But neither of them ever walks away from danger.

4.5 out of 5 Stars

Is Keaton a criminal? Is he just a super hacker? How can Cassie trust anything he says when everything about him is cloaked in mystery!

I absolutely loved this story. It continues to tie in the characters we fell in love with in KING OF CODE and we become really invested in the lives of the people of this town.

Cassie is such a surprise as a character. She is complex and torn between the criminal and the law-abiding side of her character. If she were to fall for Keaton... what would happen to her moral side? All her life she has been driven by her ambition to improve herself. Now that her promotion might be just within her reach, falling for a criminal would de-rail her entire life.

One small mention to explain why it is rated at 4.5 stars. I think at the end we needed the extra scene where Keyser is apprehended. It is a bit abrupt to just go directly to the Epilogue.

I am voluntarily reviewing this book. I thank the author for sharing a copy with me.




About the Author

_21A6258_pp-fb.jpgCD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets. Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
