Synopsis:

Madison Stevens has had a shitty life, her mother died at the age four and her father has always blamed her for it. She went through the foster system and is now attending college. Her boyfriend Chris is not willing to share Madison with anyone, not even her friends.

Her first day at college she meets Carter James, who makes her want everything she never thought she could have. She knows that she should ignore her feelings for Carter, but it’s not as easy as it sounds.

As Carter and Madison begin to fall in love, they face many obstacles. Their biggest one is Chris who is not going to let her go easily.

Playing with Fire will be the first book in a three book series. It is about the obstacles that stand in your way on the path to love. It tests the characters strength and commitment to each other on every level from old boyfriend/girlfriends, to insecurities, and throws a little violence and scheming into the mix.

“Chris was like fire. It was pretty to look at but if you got too close you got burnt, and if it wasn’t controlled it would destroy everything in its path. Doing what I was about to do with Carter was dangerous, but what can I say I never had parents to warn me not to play with fire.”

Toski’s Review of Finally


Finally by Scarlett Metal is a story about Lauren, a business women who lives in Chicago and Marcus, a co-worker who works for her company but lives in another state. For two years they have often had to be around each other for business meetings and work events and had major attraction to each other each time.. The problem – Lauren’s fiancé Kyle.

After catching Kyle having an affair, Lauren break off the relationship. Marcus comes in for a business meeting and the two plan to have a “no strings” affair. The only thing they didn’t think about was- they both might end up wanting strings after their weekend of fun.

Kyle of course after hearing Lauren maybe moving on decides he wants her back – so now she must decide between the man she once loved and was going to marry or her sexy co- worker who she has had a lusty weekend with.

This hotness of this book- OFF THE CHARTS. It’s short so you can read in one sitting and STEAM is pouring out of every single chapter. I give Finally 4 stars. The only thing lacking??- Story line.. It had SO much steam but hardly any romance.. And yea, being a girl – I need that part as well. If you are in the mood for an easy read that is H-O-T, this one is perfect for ya!

Finally is available now:

SYNOPSIS
Hiding behind the anguish from my past, my coyness seeps off of me like an aroma. I have felt like a stranger in my own skin, trying to claw my way out for far too long, allowing very few people to see past my façade…until my eyes met with his. I felt a sudden rush of energy all the way to my core. It jolted me in ways I never thought possible.

Never in a million years would I have expected to be in the mess I am today. It all leads back to the night Parker Porter turned my world upside down. The night his hazel eyes undressed me, peeling away the layers of the woman I tried so hard to be. He awoke desires that burned deep within me and changed me in one quick glance, leaving me vulnerable and exposed, picking up the shattered pieces of my carefully constructed life…a life I should not be living…a life I was not born into, but placed into by the state of Maine.

Parker opened a door that I am far from closing until I have answers and am able to face the life I was destined to live. I just have to decide if his love is worth the mess.

Synopsis:

THIS IS THE SEQUEL to ‘Disastrous’.

Marcus and Mia share a LOVE stronger than others, but their relationship was built on LIES and deceit.

Cautiously, they continue to struggle for what they desire more than anything, each other.

Though, that comes with a price …one that involves more HEARTBREAK and deception.

Can they survive another disastrous path?

Is their love strong enough to defeat all the obstacles, all of the BETRAYAL?

Not all broken relationships are repairable, but Marcus and Mia try their hardest to fight for themselves and for each other.

Jenn’s Interview with Marcus & Jimmie DeLuca
So today I’m interviewing Jimmie and Marcus DeLuca and to say I am slightly on alert and a little nervous is an understatement… I mean they were after all mobsters… but shhhh… don’t tell anybody… We decided that I would meet up with them at Marcus’s house, he’s most comfortable there and since he rarely let’s Mia out of his sight these days I was happy to oblige.

I arrive at his home and immediately notice how modern it looks. I’d think that this was a bachelor pad for sure if it wasn’t for the girly princess stuff scattered in the front yard. Elle’s addition to the landscaping of their home, I couldn’t help but giggle.

As I approached the door it opened wide, expecting to see an adult I looked down and saw the most adorable little girl dressed up looking like her favorite princess…

“Well you must be, Belle, right?” I winked at her.

“No my name is Elle.” She tilts her head with a smile, “and you must be Jennifer, my daddy said you were coming.” Her smile is infectious.

“Elle what are you doing?” I hear a male voice coming from behind the door and look up to be faced with none other than Jimmie DeLuca.

(Somebody get me a fan it just got really hot in here… WOW!!!! I never expected him to be this good looking I mean well… WOW!!!!)

I clear my throat.

“Well Elle was just informing me that her name isn’t Belle…” I winked at him and giggled.

“Ah, yes, Elle can be a bit offensive when it comes to her name.” He smiled wildly.

“It was very nice to meet you, Elle. I hope that we can talk later, I happen to love to play Princess too…” She’s adorable as she gives me a bright smile and runs off. She looks so much like her father.

His lips curled into a grin, “Hello, I’m Jimmie DeLuca, and you are?”

“And as if I didn’t already know who you are, I’m Jennifer it’s so nice to meet you Jimmie.” I smile shyly at him and hold out my hand.

Jimmie reaches out and grabs my hand, “Ah, yes, Jennifer. Please come in.”

As we walk inside I take in the almost familiar scene around me. I remember it vividly from the descriptions. It feels very homey. As we near the kitchen I spy Marcus and just about freeze in my spot… Dumbstruck. I can’t help but stare, dear lord these boys have some amazing genes… maybe it’s the water in Boston! I feel like I have been standing here forever staring as Marcus approaches me.

“Hello, Jennifer, I’m Marcus DeLuca. It’s nice to meet you.”

“It’s so nice to meet you Marcus, you have a beautiful home.” I smile trying to hide my embarrassment for starting at this man but damn he’s fine!

He gives a crooked grin and waves his arm toward a formal living area. “Let’s go in here”

As we sit and get comfortable I find I am just a little intimidated having them both staring at me now. God get ahold of yourself here Jenn seriously they are just men, but damn they are HOT men I mean like smoking hot… you get the drift right.

“Shall we get started? I promise that this won’t be too difficult.” I smile warmly at them they make me feel at ease as they smile back.

Jenn: Ok first of all I really do feel like I know so much about you both already. I want to get some basics. Marcus what made you want to become a lawyer in the first place?

Marcus: I guess it was always in the plan. Jimmie was in law school and we always talked about owning our own firm. It just fit.


 

Jenn: What about you Jimmie I feel like we know the least about you. What do you do, um, now that you aren’t well… you know… (I laugh nervously… I don’t know if I should say in the mob or a mafia dude.. I mean that is a delicate subject)

Jimmie: Well, I deal with contracts for different companies and such. Although, I don’t work at the firm, I handle legal documents privately at home.

Jenn: We know that you have both been through so much tell me what lesson do you think that you learned after everything that you have both been through.

Marcus: I’m not sure if there was any real life lesson that we’ve learned, but we have grown closer through this process

 
Jenn: Marcus tell me when you first met Mia, what was going through you mind? At that point in your life going after a woman seemed like it would only complicate things. Did you think that you could keep your secrets from her about your umm… activities?
 

 Marcus: When I first met Mia it was this instant pull toward her. She’s beautiful, but there was something about her, that I couldn’t stay away. I needed to know more of who she was, and I made sure that I wouldn’t stop until I found out. As for keeping “secrets” I’m sure there are lots of individuals who have secrets, they wish not others to know. My secrets were more to protect her.

Jenn: Mia has become such a vital part of your life. When she left you after the miscarriage did you think that you would ever be able to win her back? I do have to say that camping outside her door really was a nice touch…

Marcus: *rubs the back of neck* Um… after finding out about the miscarriage, I think that was the hardest situation I’ve ever dealt with in my life. We shared something that was more than just the love we had for one another. I was sure after everything we’ve been through, and all the hurt I’ve caused her, that she would never take me back. I’m glad she gave us another shot.

 
Jenn: Jimmie, did Marcus come to you at all for advice through any of the stuff that was going on with Mia? You guys are so close and share so much. You must have had some brotherly advice for him.

Jimmie: *chuckles* Marcus, is pretty much of a loner when it comes to dealing with issues on a general. I usually have to beat it out of him. Though, when it came to Mia, the feelings he had toward her, was something he had never experience. It was difficult for him to deal with all of it, so yes, he did come to me for advice. By the way, camping out in front of her apartment was my idea, for sure.

Marcus: Now that’s a lie. *glares at Jimmie*

Jimmie shrugs it off.

Jenn: (still chucking from their banter I decided to get personal with Jimmie) Tell me, Jimmie, every lady out there wants to know: what kind of woman is it going to take to capture, Jimmie DeLuca’s heart. (I giggle thinking if I weren’t married I’d sign up for this role, any woman would be damn lucky to have this fine man next to her…)

Jimmie: At the moment, my main focus is my little girl. Elle, means the world to me, and I need to give her my full attention. If the time comes that I’m fortunate enough to have a woman in my life, the only thing that is a must is that she loves kids, if not I’m screwed. *winks*

Jenn: Are there any ladies that have caught your eye Jimmie? (I wink at him)

Jimmie: Haha, no not at the moment.

 
Jenn: Tell me what is your one biggest regret?

Marcus: Mine would be not being honest with Mia from the beginning.

Jimmie: I don’t have any regrets, everything happens for a reason. *Marcus rolls his eyes at Jimmie* what dude? I’m serious. *Jimmie laughs*

(These two are like watching a comedy act…)

Jenn: Marcus can you tell me how things are going now. I can honestly say that this last part of your story wasn’t easy for most of us to read and we all felt your pain and sincerely were able to cry right along with you at the worst moments…
 
Marcus: Everything now is better than I can ever ask for. Mia’s pregnant, she’s due in five months and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you for asking.

Jenn: I’m so happy to hear that because you have both been through some rough times.

(now time for some fun with these two… )

Jenn: Ok let’s move on to some fun stuff… So you two are pretty sexy… (I blush and shake my head) So we want to know some things about Marcus and Jimmie… You guys ready for this?

*Marcus suspiciously looks over Jimmie, who returns the look* “Sure.” They say in unison.

Favorite Position?

Marcus: Any.

Jimmie: Haha, any sex position is good. *winks*

Boxers or Briefs?

Marcus: Briefs

Jimmie: Briefs, boxers make my balls sag.

Hottest Place you’ve ever had sex?

Marcus: Movie theater *smiles*

Jimmie whips his head over to Marcus, “Movie Theater? Dude you and Mia are freaks.” Marcus shrugs. 


Jenn: Yeah we know all about the movie theater… (I say winking at Marcus)

Jimmie: Laundry mat. *smile with triumph* Marcus looks over at him and says, “You had to have one up on me, didn’t ya?”

Best pickup line you’ve ever used?

Marcus: Never needed one.

Jimmie: Are your feet tired? Because you’ve been running through my mind all day. *Marcus raised a brow at him.* what? It worked! I know, I know, I’ve been out the game for a while.

Biggest turn on?

Marcus: When Mia is in just one of my t-shirt’s. Biggest turn on.

Jimmie: A confidant woman.

Tropical Island or Cabin in the Mountains?

Marcus: Tropical Island.

Jimmie: Cabin in the mountains.

Jenn: So I have one last question and then I will let you guys go… I love to ask this of everyone that I interview… Tell me one thing about yourself that our readers don’t know about you already.

Marcus: I like alternative rock music.

Jimmie: I’m an eighties movie man.

(I smile at this and immediately think of my favorite 80’s movie Pretty in Pink… Long Duck Dong… funny stuff…)

“Well that’s all I have for you guys… anything else you’d like to add?”

*they both glance at each other than me, and shook their heads*

As I pack up Elle runs back into the living room to tell Marcus that Mia needs him upstairs. Marcus chuckles as she whispers in his ear…

“I’ll let you two get back to your family, I really appreciate you both sitting down with me today. It’s been a lot of fun and I hope that we all get together again sometime it was really nice meeting you both today.” (I hold out my hand to shake both of theirs)

Marcus: Good bye, Jenn. Thank you for stopping by.

Jimmie: Thank you for the interview.

As I make my way back out to the rental car I can’t help but smile at how charming and fun they both are. No wonder Mia was so smitten with Marcus from the beginning he’s really a charmer… And whoever finally grabs up Jimmie is going to be one lucky girl… Just their smiles alone makes you melt!!!

That’s all for now hope you enjoyed me interview with Marcus and Jimmie DeLuca… They sure were fun to hang with and easy on the eyes… Until next time!

BLOG TOUR: LET LOVE IN BY MELISSA COLLINS

Click on image above for complete tour schedule

Synopsis:

What would happen if you lost everything? If the people who were supposed to love you unconditionally were no longer there for you, how would your world change?

Madeleine Becker lost everything when her parents died when she was ten years old. Ripped from her home and everything that she has ever loved, she is forced to start all over again. The only way for her to move on is to build walls around her heart and keep everyone at a safe distance. Her logic: she can’t get hurt if she doesn’t fall in love.

That theory is blown to pieces when she meets Reid Connely during her freshman year at college. He is gorgeous and darkly mysterious. He understands Maddy’s pain all too well, but sharing his pain would mean breaking down the walls he put up around his own heart. Conflicted between loving Maddy and hiding his dark past, Reid starts to reevaluate his world. Maddy’s inner strength, snarky personality and breath taking beauty help Reid to make peace with his past.

Together they find out what happens when they let love in.

Excerpt from Let Love In

“Hey, I thought I was supposed to meet you at your place? Did I miss something?” I ask. He really did distract me before with his utter delectableness.

Before he can answer, we reach his car and he walks me to the passenger side. He presses me against the door so that every inch of our bodies are touching. He puts his fingers under my chin to tip my head back so that I can gaze into his stunning sapphire eyes. With his other hand, he runs his knuckles gently across my cheek before saying, “Now what fun would it have been if I did what you expected? It’s our first date and I want to do it right, so that means I get to chauffeur you around and buy you pretty flowers and tell you how damn sexy you look.”

He leans his face into mine and lightly brushes his lips against mine. His tongue flicks out and licks my lips, begging for entrance. He bites my lower lip and sucks on it almost to the point of being painful and I open to him immediately. I reach my arms around his neck and twist my fingers into his silky, chocolate brown hair. He moves his hands so that one is around my waist and the other is fisted at the nape of my neck.

We kiss wildly and passionately for what seems like forever. Our hands are roaming and exploring. His hand at my waist spans my entire rib cage and grazes dangerously close to the underside of my breast.

When we hear the group of rowdy, drunken party goers yell, “Dude, get a room” we break the kiss. Reid stares at me from under his lustfully lowered lids. “Beautiful, Maddy. You are so damn beautiful and one fucking outrageously good kisser.” He winks and then opens my door for me. I see him try to readjust himself as he walks in front of the car.

Probably wishes he could take another cold shower right about now.

When he takes his seat, he reaches across the center console and gear shift to hold my hand. Once our fingers are intertwined, he raises my hand up to his lips and sweetly kisses it.

“So Maddy, are you ready for the best date ever?” he asks smiling a ridiculously goofy grin. It’s a grin that I can’t help but send back his way. “Yes, Reid, I’m ready. I’m ready for whatever you’ve got up those sexy sleeves of yours.”

 Jenn’s Review of Let Love In
That excerpt made you swoon a little right… Yeah well be prepared because Reid is one swoon worthy man!  I couldn’t get over him easily, he is hot and passionate and so sweet.  The things that he does for Maddy are above and beyond!

Sweet Maddy has lost her family, at a young age her heart was ripped from her chest when her parents died suddenly.  She was left with an aunt who was aging.  But having to pick up and move to an unknown location also brought Maddy her best friend.  Without Mel and Momma C, Maddy might have been really lost.  When Mel and Maddy leave to head to college she decides that she is going to pretty much find herself and become a new person with a good outlook on life.  What she doesn’t expect to find is the love of her life… The challenge is making him realize it too… 

Reid is broken and Oh how I love the broken ones… His issues are deeper then most and he hides is VERY well.  The night he meets Maddy at a house party, he realizes that someone can see the real him, the pain and hurt behind those beautiful eyes of his. Why?  Because he sees the same in hers.  So he does the only thing he can possibly do.  He shuts down and runs… Yeah typical… the good news is that when he finally let’s himself get out of his own way and realizes that no matter how hard he tries the electricity and connection between him and Maddy cannot be denied… But is what he has to offer enough for Maddy and can they both move past their insecurities and let the other in? Well your going to have to read it to find out. 

As much as Maddy’s story is heartbreaking, Reid’s story will tear you apart.  I want to hug him… Tell him that real life should not be so cruel and that he deserves better then the crappy hand that he has been dealt in his life…. Yeah I’m getting tears just thinking about it right now.  sniff sniff… :-(  Just wait you’ll feel it too… 


Here’s what I can tell you… If I had a scale of 1-10 for swoon… well Reid would get a 20!  He is off the charts with the sweet things that he does and the stuff he will do to make sure that Maddy has everything she desires and has never had.  But their relationship isn’t perfect and his past leads Maddy to some trust issues, mostly based on her insecure feelings about loving and losing people.  She’s lost everyone she’s ever truly loved.  

There are some major plot twists at the end of this book and it will lead the story into book two… just when you think things couldn’t be more perfect you will hit a brick wall and do a complete double take… shaking head… I still cannot believe what happened at the very end…

The character development and progression of the relationship was really done well.  For a first time author the book was really written quite well, I was impressed.  There were a few things I would have liked to see done a little differently, but they didn’t take away from the story at all. 
My only disappointment was that it ended and left me waiting till book 2… sigh…  Let Love in is a solid 4.5 star read from Melissa and I honestly can’t wait to get my hands on more…

My passion for writing sprang from my love of reading and once I knew I had a story to tell, I couldn’t wait to get it out there.

Searching For Moore Synopsis:

Attended by reality TV star wannabes and Southern California social climbers, Schooner Moore knows the party his wife is throwing for his forty-third birthday has little to do with him and everything to do with her social standing in Orange County. The evening turns out to hold more surprises than just his wife’s Botoxed friends groping at his privates, when a conversation with his old college roommate, Beau, reveals the biggest surprise of the night.
Beau has had contact on Facebook with Mia Silver. Just hearing her name sends Schooner into a tailspin, as he is now just a Friend Request away from the one who got away when she disappeared without a goodbye, leaving him wondering why she left.
A serial failure at romance, Manhattan boutique ad agency owner, Mia, gets a blindside of her own when a Facebook Friend Request from first love, Schooner, appears in her email. Going with her gut reaction, Mia hits accept, propelling her past to catch up with her in a New York minute, as a forceful Schooner is determined to understand what tore them apart and to explore the possibility of a second chance at love.
From a 1980’s Southern California college campus and a devastating first love to present day New York City, Searching for Moore explores how technology has eradicated the divide between our past and our present, and asks whether you would give up everything to reconnect with The One in a single keystroke?.
Teaser from Searching for Moore:
He leaned down next to her ear and whispered, “I want to make you happy.”

Mia put her hand to his face, brushing her thumb across his cheek and smiling into his beautiful clear blue eyes. “You make me very happy.” Schooner reached down and unbuttoned the top button on her Levi’s. He slid the zipper down and eased his hand into her underwear. His eyes never left hers and the smile on his face was real. He dipped a finger into her and she moaned.
 
“I love how wet you are.” He pulled his wet finger out and rubbed it on her clit. Her eyes grew large with surprise and he laughed, “Did I get the right spot.” All she could do was nod vigorously. “Feels good, huh?” She continued to nod, her smile matching his. He pulled her jeans and underwear down together and she kicked them off her feet. “Much better,” he acknowledged. He dipped two fingers into her and moved them to a spot on the front wall that made her gasp. His smile took on a devilish lilt – he knew he had her now.

He pulled his fingers out of her and slipped his forefinger into his mouth, sucking it slowly. “You taste good,” he ran his middle finger, which had just been inside of her, along her lips. She reached for his hand and sucked his middle finger into her mouth, tasting herself. She licked his finger from base to tip and then sucked it back in her mouth. “You are killing me,” he growled. 
 
She smiled, “Good.”
 
And he laughed. Bending down, he nipped her playfully on her hipbone and kept nipping in a line to the top of her thighs. “Now we’ll see who is going to kill who,” and with that he buried his face in her, taking the tip of his tongue and licking slowly from back to front. When he reached her clit, he stopped and pulled his tongue away.
 
“Noooooo,” she moaned.
 
He smiled and without lifting his head said, “No? As in no more? Ok, if that’s what you want.”
 
“Motherfucker,” she growled and he smiled at her “Inner New Yorker” surfacing and the shy girl getting lost somewhere in the heat of the moment. He felt her hands in his hair, pressing his face back toward her pussy.
 
“Are you trying to tell me you want more?” He was most amused, “I’m not quite understanding what you are telling me, Mia.” 
 
“Son of a bitch!” She yelled, laughing at the same time.
 
“Umm, hate to break it to you, but those are not the magic words to get you what you want.”
 
She sprang up in one move and knocked him on his back, surprising him. “Then, I’ll just take what I want.”
 
“What is it you want, Baby Girl?” He was breathless.
 
“You,” she stared intently into his eyes. Suddenly very serious.
 
“Why is that?”
 
“Because,” she searched his face, “because I love you.”
 
And there they were, the words he had shared with her earlier. And she was now saying them back to him. He hadn’t scared her away. He smiled at his sweet little freckle-faced Baby Girl, flipped her back over onto her back and made his way down between her thighs again. “Excuse me,” he said, “but I was rudely interrupted.”

Synopsis:

This is the beginning of an atypical romance.

When artist Nate Wilson falls in love, he falls hard. The problem is, he’s only been in love once, and the girl of his affections is his best friend, Emi Hennigan. In high school, the two bonded over painful breakups, and swore off a relationship to save their friendship. Thirteen years later, Nate has had more than his share of emotionally-unfulfilling, sexual relationships with beautiful women to distract himself from his true romantic feelings.

When a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity takes Nate away from his friend and his comfortable lifestyle, he is forced to reflect on the distinct void that Emi’s absence leaves in his life. To Nate’s surprise, Emi has a similar experience; but as the friends embark upon their journey toward happiness together, destiny reveals other plans for Emi.

Tonya’s Review of Lost & Found
Have you ever felt that feeling, the one that takes your breath away, makes your heart race, your skin tingle, and leaves you wanting more? Leaves you searching for that feeling again? Emi has. Once, nine years ago. The source of that feeling is her very best friend of thirteen years, Nate. Or is it? Emi was quite drunk that night when Nate showed up to rescue her from the frat boy taking advantage of her. Was it all her imagination or was that feeling real? Emi has been searching for that feeling ever since. Nate couldn’t believe Emi actually kissed him, of course she was drinking, but he’d been waiting for it for what seemed like forever. He remembers every detail but does she? Nine years later he’s still trying to find love like he feels with the one woman he can’t have. Will these two ever get it together??

Two people in love with each other and neither one realizes it. Emi wants to find love because she’s tired of being alone. She will never have the man she really wants and none of the guys she dates compare to him. Nate is a serial dater. He falls in love fast and hard and falls out of love just as quickly. Every woman he dates is just to try and distract him from his feelings for Emi. Until he takes an out of town art job and comes to the realization that he can’t keep doing what he’s been doing. When Emi shows up to surprise him the pieces start to fall into place. Finally! Can they make this work? Nate thinks so but Emi needs a little more convincing. And Nate will do everything in his power to make her see they are meant to be together.

I couldn’t put this one down! I read it in one sitting! At times I felt like I was right there in New York with them. I felt like I knew both of them personally and at times wanted to smack them both for being blind. The story had me emotionally charged, I laughed, I cried, and wanted to throw my Kindle a few times too. Nate is such a sweet, caring, sometimes naive guy, it makes you want to reach out and hug him or shake him depending on the chapter. And Emi is so cautious at times and so free spirited at others. Not always at the right times either. The writing makes you feel as if you are so in touch with the story and the characters. Lori definitely knows how to keep your interest. And the cliffhanger at the end!! I cannot wait to read Time Stands Still and Never Look Back!! I NEED to know what happens next!! 4.5 Stars for Lost and Found!!

COVER REVEAL: PERFECT REGRET BY A. MEREDITH WALTERS

 
 
Title: Perfect Regret Book #2 Bad Rep Series 
Author: A. Meredith Walters
Expected Release on 7/16/13
 
 
 
 
Synopsis:

Riley Walker makes all the right decisions and knows exactly where her life is headed.

Riley Walker does not make mistakes.

Riley Walker certainly doesn’t make spontaneous decisions.

But then Riley Walker gets dumped.

Spectacularly, gut-wrenching, stomp all over her heart dumped. And she is feeling more than a little angry. And a whole lot bitter. And suddenly the girl who has always done everything right feels like doing something completely wrong.

Garrett Bellows, lead guitarist for the local band, Generation Rejects, is going through life without a plan. Trying not to think past the next gig or the next party, he has worked hard to not become too attached to anyone or anything. So he is shocked to find himself drawn to the snarky girl with a chip on her shoulder. She pisses him off and puts him down. He knows she’s nothing more than a self-entitled college brat who thinks she’s better than the townie boy without a future.

Alcohol and a hefty dose of lust leads to a night both Riley and Garrett immediately regret. Her embarrassment, his pride and the weight of rumors and misconceptions convince Riley and Garrett that their one-time indiscretion will never be repeated. Particularly when their harshest critics are each other.

But how do you reconcile a head that wants to let go with a heart that keeps holding on?

And what happens when your biggest regret begins to seem almost perfect?

BLOG TOUR: GOOD VIBRATIONS BY S.L. SCOTT

 
click image above for full tour schedule
Title: Good Vibrations (Welcome to Paradise, #1)
Author: S. L. Scott
Release date: June 10, 2013
Age Group: New Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 

 
Synopsis:
I grab her exploring finger just as it reaches my happy trail—a trail that if I let her wander down further will lead us to do things we can’t take back. Things like three-word phrases being confessed that would end me if I was rejected. Things like selfishly wanting to own her body and doing things to her that would make my fantasies blush. And things like making her promises too soon that won’t do either of us any good. She makes me want a future that’s not possible, and one I don’t deserve. 

Listening to my ego got me into this situation. Will listening to my heart get me out? 

Jenn’s Review of Good Vibrations
Ok so let’s talk about this freaking awesome, amazing, super out of this world read… Do you think I liked it?  I was first introduced to S.L. Scott’s work with A Prior Engagement and that book made me a fan for life.  So when we got the invitation to this tour I jumped up and said YES PLEASE!!!!  I didn’t know what to expect from this book after reading the last book from her I was expecting Romance and ANGST galore and I got that and then some!

When the book starts out our heroine is landing in Paradise… Literally. Like as in Hawaii.  I mean who would EVER pass up a chance at visiting their best friend for a whole summer in a place with pristine beaches, constant sunshine, and not to mention hotties!  Ok so she gets off the plane and what does she see… A man and woman sharing tearful goodbye with a promise to write and keep in touch, what she doesn’t know is that the guy will not be keeping in touch and that well he is somewhat considered the island playboy… She’s disgusted by him as he eye’s her while he is saying goodbye to what she believes is his girlfriend… Thus their first encounter and her instant hatred of the island playboy… 

Mallory isn’t your typical easy catch she’s a challenge, she is snarky and even somewhat cynical at times.  She’s been hurt by boyfriends past and when she’s stranded at the airport by her best friend Sunny, she runs into Mr. Hottie, the one that disgusted her just a few minutes ago… Evan Ashford offers Mallory a ride and she gets more then just a ride to her friends house… 

So their relationship isn’t all sunshine and roses, and let me tell you their path to each other is snarled by island rivalries, their own apprehension, insecurities and their immense desire to not get hurt.  Mallory tries to date Noah and island native who is sweet and funny and very into her but she cannot shake free of Evan so easily.  These two fight like a married couple!!!! It’s funny and almost painful at times and you sometimes want to smack the crap out of them and say WAKE UP!!!!  

Evan isn’t the spoiled rich boy that is pampered and privlidged as I expected from the beginning and I will tell you that he will make you SWOON… Evan is truly misunderstood and Mallory sees right through all his BS.  He works as a surf instructor at a hotel… Trust me the man doesn’t need to work…

Evan repeatedly insists he isn’t the relationship kind of guy so why would he bother???  Well Mallory challenges him in a way mentally that no other girl has ever been able to do.  He holds some secrets, like why he and Noah are no longer friends…  There is some really serious tension there… I’d like to tell you that you find out what that’s all about but at the end of this book I’m still clueless.  

I have to say even with the cliffhanger and the book 2 teaser at the end that will leave you jaw dropped and wondering how things could turn that way, I felt at peace with where the two of them end up… 

This book is off the charts with the hotness factor, I wasn’t really expecting it because my first introduction to her writing was more sweet and sensual then hot and feisty… I say BRAVO she’s found her inner goddess and it transpires to paper perfectly!  Evan is just awesome.  sigh… He will make you mad, piss you off completely and then make you fall head over heels in love with him… This one is not to be missed.  I’ve already told her she needs to write faster, and that I need the next book stat!  She has assured me that we won’t have long to wait which is AWESOME!!!!! Good Vibrations gets 5++++ STARS from me I really and truly loved this book and think that it should be very high on everyone’s TBR!  Evan and Mallory are worth every minute of this read and then some…

COVER REVEAL: TWINSEQUENCES BY JENNIFER FOOR

Book Title: Twinsequences

Author:  Jennifer Foor

Release Date: Tentative release date July 7th

 


Synopsis:

I’d shared everything with Ivy since we were born. She was my exact double. We were only two minutes apart. I never thought that my own twin sister would steal away my one chance at happiness, but that is exactly what she’d done. She didn’t even know that I was in love with him. How could she? Ivy was too busy being Miss Popular to notice what I wanted.

After having my heart broken, I’d decided to leave my town, and my sister, to go to college out of state. For the past four years, I’d done nothing but work to make a life for myself. We were still the best of friends, but going home was too hard for me to face and I hadn’t been back since they’d gotten married.

I wanted my sister to be happy, even if it meant I never would be. She didn’t have the brains, or the successful future that I knew was coming to me.

But, she’d always have the one thing I wanted.
The one thing, I could never have.
Stoshua Wheeler.

A late night phone call brought me back to town. I should have never considered her request. It wasn’t right to pretend to be her, but she said she was in trouble. I had to help her.

I’d dreamed of being her for five years. I envied their relationship. I wanted her life.

What was I willing to risk to take it for myself?

I’m Willow Green and this is my story.
