T. Torrest SALE BLAST!

T. Torrest  SALE BLAST!           


Remember When Trilogy # 1

Years before Trip Wiley could be seen on movie screens all over the world, he could be seen sitting in the desk behind me in my high school English class.

This was back in 1990, and I cite the year only to avoid dumbfounding you when references to big hair or stretch pants are mentioned. Although, come to think of it, I am from New Jersey, which may serve as explanation enough. We were teenagers then, way back in a time before anyone could even dream he’d turn into the Hollywood commodity that he is today.

In case you live under a rock and don't know who Trip Wiley is, just know that these days, he’s the actor found at the top of every casting director’s wish list. He’s incredibly talented and insanely gorgeous, the combination of which has made him very rich, very famous and very desirable.

And not just to casting directors, either.

I can’t confirm any of the gossip from his early years out in Tinseltown, but based on what I knew of his life before he was famous, I can tell you that the idea of Girls-Throwing-Themselves-At-Trip is not a new concept.

I should know. I was one of them.

And my life hasn’t been the same since.

**Remember When is the first book in an NA romantic comedy trilogy, but there is NO CLIFFHANGER. It is intended for mature teen readers and immature adult ones due to some high school sex scenes, underage drinking, questionable language and 1980s flashbacks.**

Remember When Trilogy # 2

You know how sometimes, your high school crush grows up to be an insanely famous movie star? Okay, probably not. But I do. ~Layla Warren

Back in high school, Trip Wiley’s fanbase only encompassed the denizens of the nothing little suburb of Norman, New Jersey.

Ten years later, all that is about to change.

In the summer of 2000, Layla Warren is enjoying her career as a journalist in New York City (well, sort of), while Trip spends most of his time grabbing Hollywood by the balls. In the days before what will turn out to be his skyrocketing fame, they’ll find themselves confronted with some life-altering choices.

Remember When 2 is the second story in an NA romance trilogy. It will bring you back to that exuberant and riotous time of life in your twenties when you struggled to figure out your place in the world and the person you were meant to be…

…and the person you were meant to be with.

**Intended for ages 18+ due to some questionable language and sex.**

Remember When Trilogy # 3

"I’d spent too long in limbo.
It was time to put The California Plan back into effect."
~Layla Warren

I’ve been in love with Trip Wiley since I was sixteen years old.
Yep. That Trip Wiley.
Academy award-winning actor, known philanthropist, People’s Sexiest Man Alive two years running…
It’s not like I’m some delusional stalker-fan. It just so happens that he was my high school sweetheart back in 1991.
In the years since, he’s simply been The One That Got Away.
We just can’t seem to get on the same page at the same time.
Our timing may have sucked, but the feelings had already been confirmed. Years ago.
At least his were.
He doesn’t know that I had chosen to love him back.
I need to fix that.
And I need to do it now.

Remember When 3 is the third and final book in the Remember Trilogy.
It’s a story about taking chances and following your heart…
and knowing that sometimes, you just have to learn when to let go.

**Intended for ages 18+ due to some questionable language and graphic sex.**

Livia Chadwick is a photographer by day and a self-proclaimed rock slut by night.

Her dating life is a lackluster parade of evasive jerks and her boss is an unrelenting nightmare of a human being. What else can a girl do but rent a beach house with her girlfriends and blow off a little steam every weekend? But hey, she’s from Jersey. Barhopping down the shore all season is sort of mandatory. All is going according to plan… until she meets Jack.

Jack Tanner is a contractor-turned-musician in a small-town cover band suddenly thrust into the limelight. He’s already had enough of the rock-and-roll lifestyle, and groupies have never been his thing. Then again… there’s a gorgeous brunette in the audience tonight, checking him out with the most incredible green eyes he’s ever seen.

She's looking for a fling.
He's looking for forever.

It’s gonna be one helluva summer.

Set in the summer of 1995, Down the Shore takes the reader on a tour through some of the Jersey shore’s hottest hot spots over one, sleepless, flannel-clad summer. It’s a look back to a time when the music was groundbreaking, the rock clubs were king, and bar bands ruled the world. Read when you're in the mood for: something light, funny, romantic, beachy, and nostalgic. For ages 18+.

***Not recommended for anyone under the age of 18, and/or any readers who are slut-shamers, guido sympathizers, beach haters or anti-music. Other people who should walk away from this book immediately: Readers who have sticks up their butts regarding offensive language, those who don't like detailed sex in their stories, idiots who think "Jersey Shore" has anything to do with actual New Jerseyans, and anyone who can't appreciate pop-culture from the mother-effing nineties.***

Stay With Me (Book 3 - Betrayal) Kyra's Story by Emily Jane Trent New Release, Giveaway and Review

Stay With Me (Book 3 - Betrayal) 
Kyra's Story
by Emily Jane Trent

New Release, Giveaway and Review

Series Description:

Kyra’s Story is a sensual romance series consisting of 4 romantic suspense thrillers:

“Stay With Me” - Book 1: Lust /Book 2: Secrets/Book 3: Betrayal/Book 4: Confessions

Kyra Walsh was Leah Ivers best friend in the Gianni and Leah seductive romance series. Now, you can read about her love story with wealthy hero Stephano Rinaldi in the steamy, suspenseful romance “Stay With Me.”

Genre: romantic suspense, steamy new adult romance, sexy romantic series

Stephano is willing to risk it all to protect the woman he loves.
But Kyra has other ideas.

In this seductive romance, Kyra’s love for Stephano compels her to face danger alone. Yet betrayal from all sides may be her undoing.

"The sound of Stephano’s voice would be her undoing. It was difficult enough to follow through. It was only because of him that she had left. Maybe he would understand later. But not now. That would have to wait. She worried over what the next day would bring. And she missed Stephano. Her heart ached and her stomach knotted with anxiety. Her only consolation was that the man she loved was safe.”

This volatile romance takes a new unexpected turn. Will they survive it, and finally be together? Or will the abuse from Kyra’s past succeed in destroying her future?

All Kyra is thinking is the danger Stephano is in if she stays by his side. Troy will stop at nothing to force her to give him what he needs. Murder is not beyond Troy's mind.

The suspense is palpable as she runs away from Stephano and she tries to conjure a plan to double cross Troy. Saving Stephano and releasing herself from Troy's clutches the primary objective. In the spirit of a Jason Bourne thriller, Kyra must remain on the run and also find a way to store the manuscript she holds that is worth millions.

This series is just getting better and better. How to dupe Troy is the question. Whether Kyra can do this alone is a priority. Stephano will not allow her to take all the risks. He will turn the world inside out to find her and protect her. Can they really unite forces and stay out of danger?

I love how Emily Jane Trent constructs her stories. Thrilling, emotional, erotic are but a few words to describe her writing style. Just one more installment after this for the conclusion of this story. There is no way Troy can win! How our characters work to trap him is what I want to read in the final book. I am so excited!

About the Author 

Emily Jane Trent is a true romantic at heart. She writes steamy romantic stories about characters you'll get to know and love. If you like a love story with sex scenes that sizzle and a story that involves you both intellectually and emotionally, you'll find her books are for you.

Unsurprisingly Complicated (The Unexpected Series) by Claudia Burgoa New Release and Review


Unsurprisingly Complicated
(The Unexpected Series)
 by Claudia Burgoa

Release Date:  4/30/2015


The lies between my parents and I came to light and now I’m working on a new life for myself. Along the way, I have my trusty superhero, Mason, to lean on when I have a hard time standing or when my crazy ex-boyfriend continues to feel he has a claim on me. Porter has trouble understanding that there hasn’t been an ‘us’ for more than three years plus all the issues he had brought upon himself. My father was right, drugs do kill. My other concern is the growing feelings I am having regarding Mason. There’s something between us I want to explore but I keep getting mixed signals. Here, I thought that after telling my parents about my lies and having their full support, things wouldn’t be as complicated as they are. Mason My parents divorced before I even made my entrance into this world. My father has been obsessed with that love for years while my mother searches for love in all the wrong places. I don’t want a place to call home or a girl I can claim as mine. Except… Ainsley Janine –better known as ‘Nine’—has some special power that makes me question my preferences. The more I try to stay away from her, the more she pulls me closer. Exploring the possibilities of having something steady in my life isn’t a problem; it’s the long term that worries me. In addition to that, the scumbag she dated years ago keeps popping up everywhere we go. If I could use my license to kill, maybe I can stop worrying about one thing and concentrate on what to do with the green eyed girl who keeps me awake most nights. 



 “Are you sure this is okay with you? “Yes, Mason Bradley.” This is the tenth time he has asked me the question. “Did you use sex to distract me?” I clamp my lips together and refuse to answer the question. I wasn’t going to, but he gave me the perfect idea when I was desperate to make a point that his mother had to stay with me. Of course, now I’m chewing my lip because Mrs. Reality knocks me down with full force. My boyfriend’s mother is staying with me. Not just any woman—his mother. She’s going to judge me, hate me, and, what else do mothers do? “Does she know about me?” “No.” He takes his eyes off the road for a second. My hands slam against my face. “Of course she knows about you. She’s known about you since you were little, Nine.” “I don’t mean that way.” I toss my head against the seat and roll my eyes. “Girlfriend. I mean, I am your girl right?” “Oh, that detail. You are?” I groan like a wounded bear. “It’s a joke. Damn, you get feisty when you’re nervous. Take it easy. Yes, she knows and she’s aware that you and I are dating. You hold the girlfriend title, the girl who tamed me, my other half, the one who holds the key to my cell and that’s why I stick around.” I suck on my lip as I gift him with my deep, hard glare of ‘die’. “You’re not funny.” “Oh, I am.” He laughs as I burn with panic, fear, and unamused anger. My entire body is shaking at the prospect of having the woman in my house for however long she’s staying here. “How long is she staying?” I’m trying to figure out my schedule for the next few days. “She didn’t say.” A response that won’t help me with the jitters eating the insides of my stomach or with planning. Ugh, I put myself into this situation. Great. “Stop,” he orders. “I’m the only one allowed to nibble those lips. They’re mine.” He takes my hand and kisses the inside of my wrist. Then his finger caresses my skin soothing the knotted nerves. “She’s going to like you.” Not love me? My world is in danger of crumbling as I learn that winning over his mom may be a bigger challenge that I originally thought. “Oh, God!” I finally let the excruciating panic out. “What is she going to think about me?” The question comes out of my subconscious. “That we’re going too fast. I mean, you’re practically living in my house, which I love. Each day a new pair of jeans, a t-shirt, and some other item finds a spot in my closet. Scott, your sports car, lives next to Eleanor. Tucker stays at my parents’.” “Huh, you just noticed?” He kisses my hand again. “To clarify, I’m not living with you. There are a few items I have around to make things simpler when I stay overnight. That brings me to another issue. Stop naming my stuff. It’s a car, not Scott; a truck, not Tucker.” He pats the dashboard. “Ready?” he taps my nose with his free hand. “Stamp on that pretty smile of yours. That, ‘I’m about to die’ look isn’t flattering. Here they are.” Mason parks the car in front of a couple. Mr. and Mrs. Daugherty wait for us outside the terminal with their luggage. Mason’s stepfather is only a few inches taller than his wife, bald but with handsome features. “Wait here,” Mason orders. Mason’s mom is an inch or two taller than me, maybe five-seven. Porcelain skin with dark almond-shaped eyes and fine, soft features. Dark hair and a smooth complexion, just like I remember her from childhood. Due to airport restrictions, within seconds Mason shoves their luggage in the trunk and helps his mom into the car as his stepfather did not offer. “Mother, meet Ainsley Colthurst-Decker, better known as Nine or the girl I casually date.” He used the dorky jokester voice. I narrowed my eyes at him. “My lovely girlfriend. I’m not sure if you remember her. Nine, Mom.”

 He has loved her dearly since he was eight.  She is the one who centers him and offers him the anchor he needs for all his feelings and emotions.  Though he has never admitted to her or to himself that he loves her, he has successfully remained in her life to support her and rescue her in times of need. Mason is "Ten" to Ainslie's(AJ) "Nine".  They go together.

Well-written,emotional, and extreme engaging, the series continues with the focus on Aj and Mason.  This love affair has been int he works for years... it only took one kiss three years ago to shake both of them up.  It has been like a slow simmer that finally grew to a boil.

AJ is an interesting character.  She is fragile because she has been through so much, yet inside she has the fortitude to survive and be independent.  Having survived her life with Porter and losing a child has brought a new wisdom regarding relationships and love.  Abused women do not walk away from an abusive relationship easily.  In AJ's case, losing the baby and being abandoned by Porter made the difference.  Through all of these low points, it is Mason who has been her constant, always being there for her and never asking for more than her friendship.

Say My Name (Stark International Trilogy #1) by J. Kenner Review

 Say My Name
(Stark International Trilogy #1)
by J. Kenner


New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner kicks off a smoking hot, emotionally compelling new erotic trilogy that returns to the world of her beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me. Say My Name features Jackson Steele, a strong-willed man who goes after what he wants, and Sylvia Brooks, a disciplined woman who’s hard to get—and exactly who Jackson needs.

I never let anyone get too close—but he’s the only man who’s ever made me feel alive.
Meeting Jackson Steele was a shock to my senses. Confident and commanding, he could take charge of any room . . . or any woman. And Jackson wanted me. The mere sight of him took my breath away, and his touch made me break all my rules.  

Our bond was immediate, our passion untamed. I wanted to surrender completely to his kiss, but I couldn’t risk his knowing the truth about my past. Yet Jackson carried secrets too, and in our desire we found our escape, pushing our boundaries as far as they could go.

Learning to trust is never easy. In my mind, I knew I should run. But in my heart, I never felt a fire this strong—and it could either save me or scorch me forever.

Say My Name is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Jackson Steele is back again! With his charisma, control, and his need for revenge.

Sylvia is about to lose her most important project. The architect in charge has flown the coop and left everyone hanging. She has to find a new architect of equal pizazz over the weekend, or wrap the project up and fail. Failure in not an option while she can still breathe. If it takes approaching Jackson so be it.

The chemistry between these two characters spills from these pages. They experience is a wide range of emotions while discovering not only why their relationship ended in Atlanta, but those deep dark secrets that we never share.

Past villainous characters appear again to once again deny our characters a future. Trust has to be won and is not easily given with our characters' background. There is a deep sense of foreboding in these pages. I cannot wait to read the next installment and what our author has in store for us. This may be even more exciting than the Stark Trilogy itself!

Heart Mates (Pull of the Moon, Book 1)

Witch plus wolf? They’re allergic. Except no one told their hearts.

Shifters and witches? Forbidden on pain of death. Might as well stick a fork in a light socket. Yet those are the kind of sparks witch princess Sophia Blue feels when she meets wolf shifter Noah in her aunt’s bookstore.

But Sophia is stuck. Her aunt is missing and Noah, the last person to see her, is Sophia’s only hope. If not for that and her aunt’s new, cute little doggie, Sophia would run as far as she could from the sexy, hard-hewn alpha.

Noah’s stuck too. Before disappearing, the aunt hit him with a hex gone horribly wrong—he’s the doggie. By day he’s fifteen pounds of yippity-yip, and with five anti-alpha wolves nipping at his heels, that’s deadly dangerous. Only Sophia can help him, but she has lost her magic.

Then an evil mage from Sophia’s past shows up with murder on his mind, and all Noah’s instincts shout to protect the woman his misguided heart thinks is his mate.

Warning: Sinfully sexy alpha thrown together with a hot witch in a small town. Sass, sparkle, a meddling aunt, snafus, growling, fighting, and oh yeah, sex. Might want to get up to date on your shots.

Caress of Pleasure: A 1001 Dark Nights Novella by Julie Kenner Release Day Blast and Review



A 1001 Dark Nights Novella

by Julie Kenner 

Available today! Dante is waiting...

I'd thought that he was mine, the dark, arresting man who commanded not only my body but my heart. Dante had swept into my life, and I'd succumbed to the burn of passion in his arms.

I'd believed we had a love that would last forever, but he'd shattered my dreams and broken me into pieces when he'd walked away, taking a piece of my soul with him. Now he has come back seeking my help, and though I try to keep my distance and protect my heart, I cannot deny that the fire between us burns hotter than ever. And I cannot help but fear that this time our passion will reduce us both to ashes.


I fell in love with him once—and I'm honestly not sure that I ever fell out of love. But I do know one thing for sure—Dante Storm is dangerous to my heart. And whatever we started just now is something that we can't finish. I meet his eyes and am about to say just that when he shakes his head. “No. Don't say it. You don't need to say it.” “What?” “That we can't do it again.” “We can't.” “I know.” I stand in silence. I know why I can't; it's because he will break my heart. But I don't know why he doesn't want me. I only know that he doesn't. I only know that he walked away once, and that he has already told me he will walk away again. That should be enough, but then I have to go and open my mouth. I have to ask— “Why? Why did you leave?” For a minute, I don't think that he's going to answer. But he surprises me by saying, “Because I was looking at forever.” “And you don't think I was, too?” I'm baffled. With Dante, forever was my mantra. He looks at me, his eyes so sad I want to cry. “No,” he says, “I know you weren't.” I start to protest, but he just shakes his head, like a dog shaking off water. “Let's go transfer your money.” “No,” I say, standing firm. He cocks his head, then winces. “We shouldn't have done this. It won't happen again. But please don't back out. I really need your help. I can't tell you how urgent this is.” “I'll help,” I say. “But I don't want your money. And I don't want sex.” That's not entirely true. I want it; I don't think I can handle it. “Then why?” “I don't know,” I say. “Maybe because I loved you once upon a time.” Maybe because I still do.

Thirteen years ago, Brenna thought Dante was her future... her forever love.  Just as things were becoming clear to her of how much she loved him, he left her in the arm of another woman.  Now they meet again and he needs her help.  Would you help him if you were Brenna?

Charismatic Dante is in for the ride of his life with Brenna.  She has to get over all the pent up emotions before she can listen to him.  Listen to him she must because he desperately needs her help.  A life hangs on the line.

Their love is scorching hot.  As she tells him at one point "you set me on fire" which considering what Dante and the Phoenix Brotherhood can do, is the understatement of the year.  These men are all worth of the Hunk of the Year award.  Not only are their bodies in prime condition, but their air of mystery has all readers swooning.

This series is so intriguing and unique.  These short novellas are quick reads and engaging.
