“I absolutely enjoyed this entertaining feel-good love story … fast-paced, filled with drama, pain and loss, all mixed perfectly with sooo much love … definitely not-to-be-missed!” - Goodreads reviewer

It’s the cardinal rule of the Girl Code: never date a friend’s ex. Laynie Duluth knows that Gideon Roth is completely off limits. After all, he and her best friend, Priya, dated for two years back in college. And there’s no statute of limitations on the rules of Girl Code. Problem is, somebody forgot to tell Gideon.

When Laynie wakes up in Gideon’s hotel room bed, wrapped up in a naked, deliciously attractive Gideon after a night of explosive, earth-shattering, mind-blowing sex, she knows she’s got to fess up and come clean with Priya.

Only that’s not easy knowing what she knows about her best friend, and it becomes even harder when she learns Priya might just have a secret of her own to come clean about.

NEEDING FOREVER by Terri Anne Browning - RELEASE BLITZ




Title: Needing Forever Vol. 1
Author: Terri Anne Browning
Genre: Rockstar Romance
Release Date: April 30, 2019



Blurb

From The Rocker… series by USA Today Bestselling author Terri Anne Browning comes a collection of novellas featuring some of your favorite characters.

Kenzie
The lead singer for Alchemy was my first crush…and my first kiss. But when I overheard a phone call after that mind-blowing embrace, I knew I was just a game to him.

It was time to get back to reality.

But I never expected Bishop to show up at my job.


Linc
All my adult life, my parents’ condemnation followed me, reminding me I’m not worth loving. When I fell for Rhett Tomlinson, their hateful vow that I would never find someone to love the real me only echoed louder. Time after time, I pushed him out of my life, until he finally gave up and walked away for good.

Yet the pain my parents’ words once caused me was nothing compared to the agony of being without Rhett. I just prayed to all of Emmie’s gods that he was willing to take one more chance on me.


Mieke
Dear Michelle,

So, I met a guy… But you probably already knew that. He saved my life, after all. You are my guardian angel, so I’m sure you’ve got my back. Because when I needed help the most, you dropped Kaden Carmichael straight into my world.

But the real thing I want to tell you is….

I think I love him.

Only my heart isn’t my own, so I can’t give it to him. This is your heart that beats inside my chest, the one part of you that still remains now that you can’t be beside me.

Please, Michelle. Let me give it to him.

Your eternal best friend,
Mieke

FLUFFY by Julia Kent - NEW RELEASE




Title: Fluffy
Author: Julia Kent
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 30, 2019



Blurb

An all-new STANDALONE from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent

It all started with the wrong Help Wanted ad. Of course it did.
I’m a professional fluffer. It’s NOT what you think. I stage homes for a living. Real estate agents love me, and my work stands on its own merits.
Sigh. Get your mind out of the gutter. Go ahead. Laugh. I’ll wait.
See? That’s the problem. My career has used the term “fluffer” for decades. I didn’t even know there was a more… lascivious definition of the term.
Until it was too late.
The ad for a “professional fluffer” on Craigslist seemed like divine intervention. My last unemployment check was in the bank. I was desperate. Rent was due. The ad said cash paid at the end of the day.
The perfect job!
Staging homes means showing your best angle. The same principle applies in making a certain kind of movie. Turns out a “fluffer” doesn’t arrange decorative pillows on a couch.
They arrange other soft, round-ish objects.
The job isn’t hard. Er, I mean, it is — it’s about being hard. Or, well… helping other people to be hard.
Oh, man…
And that’s the other problem. A man. No, not one of the stars on the movie set. Will Lotham – my high school crush. The owner of the house where we’re filming. Illegally. In a vacation rental.
By the time the cops show up, what I thought was just a great house staging gig turned into a nightmare involving pictures of me with a naked star, Will rescuing me from an arrest, and a humiliating lesson in my own naivete.
My job turned out to be so much harder than I expected. But you know what’s easier than I ever imagined?
Having all my dreams come true.

Excerpt

“I can't tonight. I have a date,” I blurt out, remembering David. The dating app. The asshole who isn't an asshole.

Yet. I haven't met him, so that judgment remains withheld.

“A date?” Will asks, intrigued.

“Yes. A date. You know, that thing where you go out with someone who has no intention of really getting to know you and you spend the entire time eating bread that doesn’t taste as good as your date claims and trying to decide whether to initiate rescue-text sequences with your mom.”

“That’s your idea of a date?”

“That is my actual experience of every date I’ve had since college.”

“You’re dating the wrong guys.” He holds my gaze for just a little too long. I look away.

“I have to keep fishing in the pond if I ever want to catch a different one.”

“If that’s the way you talk to your dates, I am beginning to understand why they all turn out so badly.”

“Hey!”

“What?”

“Don’t accuse me of being a bad date. I’m a great date! I Google the guy in advance and read his LinkedIn profile. I make sure I don’t wear super-tall heels in case he lied about his height on his dating profile. I pretend to care about all his hobbies and don’t reveal that I’m secretly tallying all the micro-aggressions he’s sending my way during appetizers and wine. And if he makes it to dessert, well–” I falter.

“You never make it to dessert, do you?” Will asks, eyebrows up. He drops them quickly, wincing.

“I–well–it’s not that I don’t. He doesn’t!”

“He ditches you?”

“No! No! It’s just that he always has a thing.”

“A thing?”

“A work emergency. Or a dog with a twisted bowel. Or a grandma in the ER.”

“How many guys used the twisted-canine-intestine thing?”

“Three.” I sit down and sag against his teenage desk, elbows sliding forward, fingers deep in my hair. “I looked it up. There’s an entire subreddit devoted to inventive ways to get out of a bad date.”

“And yet here you are.” He leans against the edge of his desk. “Trying again.”

“I’m a masochist.”

His eyes gleam. “Maybe you should start your dates with that line. ‘Hi. I’m Mallory Monahan. I’m a masochist.’ You’d definitely make it to dessert.”

Genre: Contemporary Romance
(old man/much younger woman)
Release Date: April 29, 2019



Blurb

I knew how old she was.
I just didn’t care.

RYKER
Aria Amherst lied about her age the first night we met.
But when I kissed her… I knew exactly how old she was.
And once I kissed her…  I needed more.
I wanted all of her. I wanted everything she wasn’t really offering.
Until I found out that her father was making a deal with my business partner.

Then I wanted her more.

ARIA
Ryker North blew into my life like a wall of hot, tattooed muscle.
And did I mention he’s a drummer?
And a businessman?
And thirty-five years old?
And my father is going to kill me when he finds out I’m dating his new client?

It’s… complicated.
But take my word on this. He’s worth every risk I’m taking.

SWEET THING is a full-length standalone older-man-very-young-woman sexy romance filled with forbidden lust, too many ‘first times’ to count, inappropriate touching in public, and an angsty, but perfect, HEA.

Excerpt

“When will you turn eighteen?” he whispers into my mouth.
“Sunday,” I whisper back.
“Two days from now?” he asks, still kissing me.
“Mmmm-hmmm,” I mumble back, thinking if this is kissing I should’ve started doing it sooner.
He pulls away, a pained look on his face. I know he’s going to leave. Right now. He’s going to yell at me for deceiving him and walk right out my sister’s door.
“Oh, God, Aria.”
“I’m so sorry. I really am. I won’t tell anyone if you don’t. Please don’t tell anyone I brought you up here. My father would be pissed and he’ll drag me home to the boring suburbs, and my exciting pretend adult life in the city will be over!”
He exhales.
“You’re mad,” I say. “I know you’re mad. And… and I’m bad. I know that. This was bad. I’m bad. And I probably deserve to go home.”
“No,” he says. “That’s not what I’m thinking about right now.”
“You’re not?” I say, genuinely surprised because if I were him, I’d be thinking that yeah, this girl has no clue what she’s doing and has no business being left alone in her sister’s apartment in the city for four weeks.
But thank God, I don’t say any of that out loud. Instead, I say, “Then what are you thinking about?”
He looks at me hungrily. Like he’s the Big Bad Wolf and I’m Little Red. Like he wants to eat me up in one gulp.
And I look back at him like maybe I want him to do that.
“Two days?” he asks again.
“Yes.” I nod. “I’m meeting my parents for tea at the Corinthian and then we’re going to see that musical everyone’s talking about.”
“God help me,” he says.
“What? Why? I said I was sorry. Please don’t tell. Please,” I beg.
“I’m not gonna tell, Aria.”
“You’re not?” I brighten.
“Not if you don’t,” he says. And that hungry look is back. Only it’s like he’s starving and needs to eat something now. Anything, even if it’s me.
And to tell the truth, I feel the same way. My body is all tingly and my lips—I reach up to touch them. They feel all weird. His touch lingering. The minty taste of his mouth still fresh inside mine.
“What are you thinking about?” I ask.
He reaches for me, then steps back without touching. I want him to touch me, I realize. I didn’t intend for that to happen when I brought him up here, but I do.
But I see that he’s about to leave, to walk out and never come back, so I reach for him.
He shakes his head and backs away. “I shouldn’t have kissed you. I just can’t…”
I wait for him to continue, but he doesn’t. So I say, “You can’t what?”
“I can’t help myself. I have to go before I do something stupid.”
“No!” I say, grabbing onto the sleeve of his coat. “Just… wait.”
He looks at me over his shoulder and says, “Aria. If I stay here another second I’m going to lift up your little skirt, pull down your pink panties, and stick my fingers inside you until you come.”
My mouth drops open.
“And if you open your mouth like that again, I’ll stick my cock inside it.”
I shut my mouth.
“I’m sorry,” he says, shaking his head. “That was so fucking inappropriate.”
Which it totally was. But it was also totally hot.
“I gotta go.”
And then he does. He leaves. He opens the door, walks through it in a rush, and closes it behind him.
And when I open it back up to call him back, he’s already out of sight. Nothing but footsteps on the stairs.
