a1589-event2bbanners-synopsis

Is it too much to believe that someone keeps returning to your life because it’s meant to be?

Zane Carson is an idealistic young man with one big skeleton in his closet when he first meets Jennifer Manders in college. They date only to break up soon after. The sexual attraction is like an electromagnet but they fight like alley cats. The relationship just isn’t worth it.

Zane’s band Fully Automatic breaks big about the same time Jennifer finishes college. One summer afternoon, they meet for coffee and sparks fly once more. It’s off again, on again, but they just can’t make it work and break it off for good, deciding it’s not worth the effort.

But Zane is drawn to her and, during a break in the music action, he tracks her down again, willing to change himself for her and needing to give her one last try. The attraction is as strong as ever, but now Jennifer is hiding something from Zane—something big, something that threatens to extinguish the spark for good. When Zane discovers her secret, will he be able to forgive her or will that be the end?

9c146-event2bbanners-excerpt

“Oh, Zane, this place is amazing. Why haven’t I ever heard of it before?”

“I can tell you exactly why. Three reasons.” She raised her eyebrows as he raised his index finger. “One, it’s almost downtown, and I know you avoid downtown like the plague. If I recall, you said something about rather losing a limb than walk the Sixteenth Street Mall again.”

“I said that?”

“Yeah.”

“Well…maybe that was a little drastic.”

“Yeah, probably.” He lifted the bottle of Dos Equis and then said, “Two, it’s a little hole in the wall. It doesn’t advertise like some of the bigger restaurants—no billboards, no newspaper ads, shit like that.”

Jennifer nodded. “Okay, yeah. And what’s number three?”

Zane leaned over the table and whispered. “It’s kind of a dive.” Jennifer couldn’t help but giggle. “But in a good way.”

She laughed out loud at that. “Yeah, definitely.” She picked up a chip and dipped it in the warm queso next to Zane’s bottle. “The food is amazing so far.”

“Just wait.”

The waiter came by with a pitcher. “More water, señorita?”

“Please.” After the waiter was back on his way, she said to Zane, “I love it. I love the people and I even love that stupid TV in the corner.”

Zane glanced over. “Yeah, well…”

“No, seriously. They don’t have the sound on, but it somehow makes it feel like home in here, you know? Lights and movement, but the sounds are coming from the kitchen and some weird soundtrack.”

Zane breathed through his nose, putting on a look of mock horror and said, “What if it’s our soundtrack?”

“What do you mean?”

“What if this is our movie? A movie about our lives…and that’s the soundtrack?”

“Three things.”

Zane grinned. “What?”

“One…if this is our movie, it’s pretty damn boring. No car chases, no sex scenes, no snappy dialogue—”

“Says who? My dialogue’s plenty snappy.”

“Two, the soundtrack sucks.”

“Well, don’t be telling them that.”

“And…I don’t have a three. I guess just two.”

A smirk covered Zane’s face. “And we can take care of the sex scene later.”

ALP SarahLReview Owl

I absolutely love the Bullet series by Jade C. Jamison. Locked and Loaded is the 6th and final book of this series. This book tells the story of Zane, the bassist for Fully Automatic.

Zane and Jennifer met in college and had an on and off relationship. They had deep feelings for each other but always ended up fighting so they eventually broke things off when Zane quit college to tour with the band. Zane had a rough childhood and is now an addict and his demons have taken over. He sleeps with lots of women and takes whatever drugs he can get ahold of to drown out the pain of his past. He eventually hits rock bottom and put himself into rehab. When he gets out he decides to try get in contact with Jennifer. Will he be able to convince her to give him another shot at a relationship or will she have already moved on with her life?

Jennifer has always loved Zane and she struggled when they broke things off and he quit college to go tour with the band. She moved on with her life and tried dating other guys but none of them were like Zane. She is surprised to hear from Zane after having no contact with him for 2 years. She agrees to go on a date with him and just when she thinks he has changed he ends up screwing things up. He promises her it won’t happen again but Jennifer doesn’t believe him so she gives him an ultimatum-go to rehab and get clean or stay out of her life. Zane struggles with believing that he will ever be able to overcome his demons. He finds a good therapist through his best friend Ethan and after time he learns how to fight the many addictions that he struggles with. Will Jennifer be happy with his progress and let Zane back into her life or will she have a hard time trusting that he is trying to better himself?

I loved the deep connection between Zane and Jennifer. It was fun catching up with the rest of the band members and their families. I do feel like the story was a little rushed and would have liked to see more depth to the storyline. I am very sad that this is the end of the Bullet series as I absolutely love these characters and will always wonder what they are up to. 

**PRAISE FOR LOCKED AND LOADED**

“AND she’s back! Who might you ask? Well of course I am talking about the hard rocking Queen herself…Jade Jamison and her fascinating, complex Fully Automatic cast of characters and in particular Zane, the quietly messed up bass player who lives his life on the edge and crosses the line one too many times before he falls from the cliff….

A lot of twists and a few surprises (some more expected than others) make this sixth book in the Bullet series a wonderful comeback for Jamison…after all the zombies, girl rockers and girl reporters of her other projects, I was very happy she went back to the series I first fell in love with and did an amazing job. Highly recommend if you have read and loved all the boys in Fully Automatic.” ~ Sue Banner, top Amazon reviewer

“When I finished this book my heart was so sad. Sad not at the book but sad that this was it. This was the end of the line for the Bullet guys. This was the end of a series that I have grown to love and looked forward to reading for years…” ~ Angie J, Twinsie Talk Book Blog, http://www.twinsietalk.com

Beautiful Burn Official Cover

BB Synopsis Release

Fresh out of college, Ellison Edson has fallen through the cracks of rock bottom. While staying in her family’s vacation home in Colorado, her behavior has finally gained the attention of her parents—but not in the way she hoped. Cut off from the millions she’s always taken for granted, and left alone to fend for herself, Ellie spirals further out of control, making a mistake she can’t take back.

Like his twin brother Taylor, Tyler Maddox is a member of the Alpine Hotshots, fighting wildland fires on the frontline. As arrogant as he is charming, Tyler’s nomadic lifestyle makes it easy to contain his relationships to one night. When he meets Ellie at a local party during off-season, her extreme personality and dismissive attitude fascinates him at first, but as his feelings deepen, Tyler realizes that the crippling inner demons of the woman he loves might be the strongest enemy any Maddox has ever faced.

Release Blitz/Review-Just One Moment by Stacey Lynn

 

 

 

Title: Just One Moment

Series: Just One #4 (Standalone)

Author: Stacey Lynn

Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Release Date: January 26, 2016

Blurb

 

Ex-military man, Lynx Anders has one surefire weapon that destroys all of his pain and suffering–SEX.

Lots of raw, unattached, uninhibited sex.

 Sure, it doesn’t cure him of all that he’s seen–all that he’s done in combat, but it helps–for the time being.

But when he has one night of unadulterated, mind-blowing passion with Sarah Linscum, Lynx realizes that one night is not enough–will never be enough.

Her upbeat and bubbly exterior broke through his tough-guy armor, and he wants more. Bound and determined to uncover why Sarah’s eyes mirror his own in pain and despair, Lynx sets out to make them shine as bright as her.

As they both know, it takes just one moment to change everything.

Together, can they heal from the demons that chase them in their dreams and find a way to not only heal…but love?

ALP SarahLReview Owl

I absolutely loved Just One Moment by Stacey Lynn. Just One Moment is the fourth book in Stacey’s Just One series and tells the story of Lynx and Sarah whom we first meet in Just One Regret. This book can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading Just One Regret first to get a better understanding of the characters and their relationship.

Lynx and Sarah first hooked up in Vegas and it was supposed to be a one-night thing as neither of them are interested in a relationship. When Sarah gets back home she can’t stop thinking about the time she spent with Lynx. She is surprised to hear from him and isn’t quite sure what to think about him wanting to hook up again. When their best friends decide to work out their issues these two end up spending more time together and the more time they spend together the stronger their feeling for each other get. Will Lynx and Sarah be able to let go of their pasts and open up to each other and give a relationship a try or will their past issues keep pushing them apart?

I love the deep connection between Lynx and Sarah. I loved the emotional rollercoaster this book took me on. It was nice to be able to catch up with the characters from some of the other books in the series. Stacey has a way of pulling you in from the very beginning and not letting go until the very end. I can’t wait see what she is working on next!! Maybe Landon’s book!?!?!

“What’ll it be, Anna Cortez? Are you in, or are you out?”

One momentary loss of control has now ruined everything Xavier Cold had going for himself. With his world unraveling fast, he’s willing to do anything to save not only his job but his relationship with the only woman he’s ever loved.

I absolutely love everything that Michelle Valentine writes. She creates some of the most swoon worthy characters. Xavier Cold picks up where Phenomenal X leaves off so if you haven’t read that one I recommend doing that first.

Xavier finds himself being taken out of the ring in handcuffs after he beats his opponent unconscious when he loses control. His boss bails him out and is able to get the charges against him dropped but unfortunately for Xavier he ends up being suspended for 3 months and has to stay away from all wrestling related events. This will be difficult for him as Anna is expected to continue working with Rex and Xavier doesn’t trust him at all. Before Anna has to report back to work her and X head back to Denver to spend a few days together. They will be staying at X’s childhood home which stirs up lots of bad memories for Xavier. Xavier goes to a dark place after he starts seeing more people from his past. He feels like Anna deserves so much more than he can give her so when she leaves to go back to work he starts ignoring her calls and texts in hopes that she will find someone better for herself. Will Xavier’s friends be able to pull him out the dark place he has went to or will he fall back into his old ways and lose Anna for good?

 “I’m not good enough for her, and it was selfish of me ever to believe that I could keep someone as loyal and loving as her to myself…I am evil…The only way I can make sure she’s safe is to keep her as far away from me as possible.”

 Anna is not happy about leaving Xavier behind in Denver but she knows she has to go back to work to be able to pay the bills. She is put in some very uncomfortable situations but she pushes herself through them because she knows Xavier will be back before she knows it. She finds out some very exciting news and tries to call Xavier to tell him about it and she gets very upset when he doesn’t answer any of her texts or calls. She starts to feel like he doesn’t want her anymore and isn’t sure what do to. She knows that he loves her but if he isn’t willing to open up and be honest with her she isn’t sure she can continue a relationship with him. Will Anna be able to help Xavier fight past his demons and prove to him that true love really does exist? Will these two be able to make a relationship work or will their pasts keep pushing them apart?

 “So many times in my life I’ve been tossed away, like I meant nothing. People don’t stick with me, which is what makes me cherish Anna even more.”

 I loved the deep connection between Anna and Xavier. I loved all the twists and turns this story took. The secondary characters added lots of depth to the storyline. I really enjoyed the emotional rollercoaster this story took me on. I can’t wait to see what Michelle is working on next!!

SNEAK PEEK AT XAVIER COLD

“You tired?” he asks.

It doesn’t hit me until he mentions being tired on how exhausted I actually am. Tonight’s been stressful, and I’m sure, if I allow myself to close my eyes for even the briefest time, I’d fall asleep on the spot.

But I refuse to let go of Xavier. When I thought they would lock him up and throw away the key, the opportunity to hold him against me anytime I wanted felt like it was quickly being ripped away. So, for now, I choose to stay here, in his presence, breathing him in as much as I possibly can.

I tilt my head up and stare into his light-blue eyes. “I’m ready for bed, but I don’t want to sleep just yet.”

For the first time since the chaos of the day began, Xavier smiles, but it’s not just any smile. It’s the heart-stopping one-sided smirk that drives me out of my ever-loving mind.

“Have I turned my good girl naughty?”

I give him my best wicked grin. “Afraid so. I can’t seem to get enough of you.”

His large hands cradle my face. “Glad to hear it because I’m fucking addicted to you.”
His lips press on mine, and I’m immediately lost in his kiss. The stubble on his face scratches my fingertips as I trace his jawline.

“I need you.”

A wicked gleam is in his eyes. “Is that so?”

Xavier bends down and nips my lower lip. “You don’t know how much it turns me on when you ask for it. It takes every ounce of willpower in my body to stop myself from throwing you down on that bed and ravaging every inch of your body for my pleasure.”

At the very thought of what that would be like, my pulse races under my skin. “What’s stopping you?”

“You’re too sweet for that.” He leans in and runs his nose along my cheek, causing my entire body to quiver with anticipation. “And because you’re not ready to go there— to allow me to have full control— yet.”

“How do you know?”

Excerpt

I hear a few gasps and can only assume that I’m approaching where I need to be. My father hasn’t let go yet, and for that I’m thankful. He’s keeping me steady on my feet and somewhat calm, even though thoughts of hanging my mother by her pedicured toenails are filtering through my mind. If she thinks I’m going to share my winnings with her, she’s off her rocker.

Winnings? How can I even think about winning? I’m not going to be able to pretend to be okay with this for three months. And what if he likes me? What if he finds me attractive and tries to kiss me? Then what? Ninety days of purgatory that’s what. I’m so not ready to live in a house with five people I don’t know all while trying to compete for Best Betty Crocker.

The announcer clears his throat and gets the audience cheering. Behind my blindfold, I’m rolling my eyes and glaring simultaneously at my groom. I know he’s standing in front of me; I can smell him. If anything, his cologne smells good, but it’s probably something his production assistant told him to wear.

Is he nervous like I am? Is he sweating from standing under these heat lamps? Are his parents here, too? What made him so desperate that he had to come on national television to find a bride? That’s the answer I want to know, but will never ask for fear of what he might say.

Neither of us should be doing this and yet here we are. I could run. I could slip off my blindfold and run without looking back. But what if he’s my soul mate and I don’t know it?

What damage could three months do?

Everything!

My father places my hands into those of my groom and while I should cringe, I don’t. My fingertips, hands, wrists, arms and everywhere else tingle. I feel warm, but not from the lights. It’s a different kind of heat. My tummy flutters. My heart pounds furiously in my chest, drowning out the audience, the music blaring overhead, and the crackle of the microphone. It’s all too soon when the music stops and I’m quickly reminded that this is just a show. I shouldn’t be excited.

“Do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, to compete with in good faith, from this day forward for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, or until three months has expired?”

Um … what? What’s his name? Don’t I get to know his name at least?

“What do you say?” the announcer’s voice bellows through the microphone. I can hear mumbling from the crowd as they wait with bated breath on what I’m going to say. Do people actually come on this show and say no?

“We need your answer.”

I bite my lower lip and nod. If he can make me feel the way he did when he held my hand, maybe three months won’t be so bad. “Yes,” I squeak out, my voice barely audible.

“She said yes,” the announcer roars, and the applause is deafening. I can’t help but smile even though I’m dying on the inside.

My groom’s voice is almost as quiet as mine, making me feel somewhat better that he’s just as nervous. I sigh in relief when he says yes. The crowd cheers again and the announcer pronounces us man and wife.
Here it comes. I sense my groom moving closer, and I hold my head high. His hand fumbles on my neck until he rests it gently on my cheek. The crowd is hushed and everyone is waiting for the moment that seals us. His lips brush softly against mine, and he pulls back before I feel his wet lips press against mine again, this time fully. If not for his hand, I’d be crumbling to the ground. My knees start to buckle. My palms, already damp from earlier, are sweating profusely. My heart has stopped beating, but I can hear his. This is a first kiss for the records, and the only thing missing is his face.

The announcer clears his throat and my groom steps back, much to the delight of the viewers. “This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for,” the announcer says. I read from the rules that the groom’s blindfold comes off first. There’s a collective gasp, followed by a series of ‘oh my God’s’ and ‘that lucky bitch’. Gee thanks, audience members. I can safely assume my groom is cute. Great, perfect. I have a cute husband who can turn my insides to goo when he holds my hand. Hopefully he’s not planning on winning many competitions that require physical touching because I don’t think I’ll be able to handle it.

Someone comes up from behind me and starts to untie my blindfold. I keep my eyes closed. I want to see him fully when I open my eyes. I open them slowly, but keep them focused on the ground. Slowly, I take in what he’s wearing—black patent leather shoes, with black tuxedo pants. His hand rests at his side, and I see the glint of a wedding band and quickly look down at my own hand. Was I so lost in my rambling thoughts that I don’t remember him slipping a ring on my finger, or me giving him one?

I remind myself that this marriage is not real.

“I’ll get you a bigger one,” a familiar voice says.

My head moves up quickly, and I’m caught in the dark, smoldering eyes that I’ve studied for hours on end. I swallow hard and say, “Holy shit,” before the darkness takes over, and I crumble to the ground in a heap.

I pulled Black Jack to a stop as I looked out over the hill country. There was nothing like being back at home in Texas and on the ranch. No early morning strategizing meetings with Dalton. No pressure from the sponsors to be on my A game. Nothing to worry about at all.

Just nature.
There was nothing like it.

Pulling on the reigns, I turned Black Jack and headed back to the house. She’d be here soon and I still needed to take a shower. “Let’s go boy,” I shouted as I gave Jack a bit of pressure to get him into a run.

Twenty minutes later hot water was running over my body.

My hands were leaning against the travertine wall as I hung my head with my eyes closed.

“If that’s not the best damn site I’ve seen in awhile.”

With a grin, I smiled as I felt her hands move across my wet body. “Did you miss me?” she whispered against my skin while she slowly moved her lips down my chest.

In her spare time she loves to sit in her small corner overlooking the Texas hill country and write.

One of her favorite things to do is go for hikes around her property with Gus….her chocolate lab and the other man in her life, and Rose, her golden retriever. When Kelly is not outside helping the hubby haul brush, move rocks or whatever fun chore he has in store for her that day, you’ll find her inside reading, writing or watching HGTV.

Ex-military man, Lynx Anders has one surefire weapon that destroys all of his pain and suffering–SEX. 

Lots of raw, unattached, uninhibited sex.

Sure, it doesn’t cure him of all that he’s seen–all that he’s done in combat, but it helps–for the time being.

But when he has one night of unadulterated, mind-blowing passion with Sarah Linscum, Lynx realizes that one night is not enough–will never be enough.

Her upbeat and bubbly exterior broke through his tough-guy armor, and he wants more. Bound and determined to uncover why Sarah’s eyes mirror his own in pain and despair, Lynx sets out to make them shine as bright as her. 

As they both know, it takes just one moment to change everything.

Together, can they heal from the demons that chase them in their dreams and find a way to not only heal…but love?

Beautiful Burn

By Jamie McGuire

*Cover Reveal*

Beautiful Burn Official Cover

Tyler Maddox is coming!

The fourth and final Maddox brother series novel releases on January 31, 2016.

Official Synopsis

Fresh out of college, Ellison Edson has fallen through the cracks of rock bottom. While staying in her family’s vacation home in Colorado, her behavior has finally gained the attention of her parents—but not in the way she hoped. Cut off from the millions she’s always taken for granted, and left alone to fend for herself, Ellie spirals further out of control, making a mistake she can’t take back.

Like his twin brother Taylor, Tyler Maddox is a member of the Alpine Hotshots, fighting wildland fires on the frontline. As arrogant as he is charming, Tyler’s nomadic lifestyle makes it easy to contain his relationships to one night. When he meets Ellie at a local party during off-season, her extreme personality and dismissive attitude fascinates him at first, but as his feelings deepen, Tyler realizes that the crippling inner demons of the woman he loves might be the strongest enemy any Maddox has ever faced.
