Blog Tour/Review/Giveaway-Bad Intentions by Nacole Stayton

Title: Bad Intentions
Author: Nacole Stayton
Genre: Mature NA Romance
Release Date: August 6, 2015
She’s careful, but wants to be reckless. 
She’s cute, but wants to be sexy. 
She’s innocent, but wants to be bad.

When ex-Olympic gymnast, Adaley Knight wakes on her eighteenth birthday she only has one wish, to leave the only town she’s ever known and start fresh.

Finding herself enrolled at a college across the globe, the once modest Adaley is almost unrecognizable. Her new persona dances on the wild side by sinking her teeth into the first bad boy she sees. The only problem is he’s not the least bit interested.

Ryle Benson, baseball extraordinaire and brooding campus bad-boy keeps everyone at an arms length. Things have never come easy for him and the last thing he needs is getting involved with any female.

The tables are reversed as she tries to be bad, tempting fate, and he tries to fight his. The push and pull is half the fun. But what happens when one pushes a little too hard?


“Dare.” Ryle’s voice is cool, calm and collected as he mumbles his answer, like there isn’t another option.
“I dare you to—” Bradley’s interrupted by several females shouting in unison. “Take off your shirt!” 
Ryle nods his head to the adorning crowd and grabs the rim of his shirt. Everyone with lady parts around the fire starts to drool. Me included. His movements are slow and sensual, and he doesn’t even bat an eye. Apparently removing an article of clothing in front of a crowd is a typical thing for him to do on a Saturday night. My needy eyes take notice to the “V” that waves hello to me as cloth is lifted from his body.
I melt.
Literally. My body fills like goo, and I wilt until nothing is left but a puddle of want and need.
“Ow ow.”
“Yumola!”

“Sexy beast.”
I feel like I need to wash my ears out. Rolling my eyes, I snatch Tank’s drink out of his hands and down it. Bottoms up.

I love everything that Nacole Stayton writes. Bad Intentions took me on quite an emotional rollercoaster ride and I loved every second of it. This book is much different than what Nacole normally writes and I am so happy she took a chance and gave us something new and fresh.
Adaley Knight wants a fresh start in life after she experienced a horrible accident that ruined her dreams of making it to the Olympics as a gymnast. When she turns 18 she decides to enroll at a college far away from home. She wants to live her life on wild side and finally start to enjoy life. One of the first guys she meets at college definitely fits the bad boy persona she is looking for but unfortunately for her he isn’t interested.
“I’m careful, but I want to be reckless.
I’m cute, but I want to be sexy.
I’m innocent, but I want to be bad.”
Ryle Benson is an amazing baseball player with a bad boy persona. He has been through a lot in his life and tends to keep to himself. He is attracted to Adaley the minute he sees her but knows starting any type of relationship will only end in heartache. He tries to keep his distance but Adaley is very persistent in trying to get close to Ryle. Will she be able to convince Ryle that love really does exist or will her persistence continue to push him away?
I loved the connection between Adaley and Ryle. I really enjoyed the push and pull relationship they shared. The secondary characters added lots of depth to the storyline. If you enjoy books with surprise ending this is definitely the book for you!!

Tilting my head up, I make eye contact with the other male in the room. It’s then that I really notice the guy that he called Ryle. In the seconds it takes Taylor to wrap up his convo with Zoe, I rake Ryle over, head to toe with needy eyes. He’s tall, but not awkward and lengthily. He’s built, but not like a jock on steroids but rather like a guy who occasionally picks up a set of weights. And by occasionally, I mean every other day. And although his body isn’t painted with art like a typical bad boy there is a certain sex appeal that oozes off him like hot lava. I want to get torched, maybe even burned by his touch.

~Synopsis~

 

The twist of a knife shredded Niko Kincaid’s world all around him, leaving him with two choices—accept his fate and die, or fight to live.

He chose to fight, but the aftermath became a daily reminder, carved into his once flawless flesh.

Despite years of self-imposed solitude, Niko hungers for companionship and suffers from an aching loneliness that the darkness cannot satisfy. He temporarily soothes his pain with women, hired women, whose only purpose is to service him. Easy.

He didn’t expect a complication like Cambree Evans, but desperation corrupts even the most innocent.

When emotions blend with lust, will Cambree’s softness and ability to look past Niko’s flaws be the one thing that releases him from his own personal hell?

Will the monster in the dark prove that his savaged heart is worth saving?

Excerpt

I’ve gone days, weeks, maybe even months without stopping and looking at myself. There isn’t much to see, my body is just a shell, a mask of sorts. The man staring back at me resembles a beast hiding my true self underneath its scarred reflection. I’m not even truly living. The death certification hidden away in my private safe is proof of that.

 

My lids slip down over my eyes as I remember the image I used to see when I came into this room – a man with russet hair that was a little longer on top and shorter around my ears and neck, dark eyes that were alluring and inviting, a little stubble on my jawline that screamed sex appeal. I was a businessman through and through, but the sexy gaze that I kept on my face at all times was enough for women to want me, a man in a suit, a man who broke all the rules.

 

My confidence died with the old me.

 Sarah’s 5 Star Review

I love everything that Nacole Stayton writes. Savaged is very different than what she normally writes as it much darker and sexier. This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster and I loved every second of it.
Niko Kincaid has it all until the night he was brutally attacked and left for dead. He now lives his life in the dark and see himself as a monster that doesn’t deserve love. He hires women for companionship but just uses them and then turns them away. He never lets them kiss him or touch him as he is afraid to let anyone get close to him. He sends his right hand man out to find him a new companion and he is very much in awe over the beautiful girl that is brought to him.
“I was repulsed by my image. The only way to stay sane was avoidance and avoiding people like the plague. The dark became my closest ally and I cherished it for keeping me concealed.”
Cambree has lived a very tough life. The only person in her life that has always been there for her, her grandma Joyce, is in a nursing home and Cambree is struggling to make ends meet. One day while she is at the coffee shop she is propositioned by a man. He is looking for a companion for his friend who is willing to pay lots of money if she agrees to his terms. She is desperate to make sure her grandma is well cared for so she reluctantly agrees to go and meet this mysterious man.
“My dear, Cambree. You knew what you signed up for. You chose to come. No one forced you….You’re scared you’ve come to f**k a monster?”
When Cambree first meets Niko she is very nervous because he does everything in the dark. As she spends more time with him she becomes very intrigued and wants to know more about him. Cambree sees good in the very trouble Niko. Will she be able to get him to see the light or will he forever remain in the dark?
This book is dark, gritty, sexy and emotional. I really connected with Cambree as I am very close to my family and would do whatever it took to make sure they were well cared for. I loved that even through all the darkness in Nikos life Cambree was able to see the good in him. I can’t wait to see what Nacole is working on next!!

Title: In the Lyrics
Author: Nacole Stayton
Publication Date: February 7, 2014

SYNOPSIS

Hensley Bradley is the definition of the girl-next-door. She’s kindhearted, beautiful, and talented. Bored with her mundane life, thoughts of fleeing her small town begin to consume her. With aspiring dreams to use her voice as a one-way ticket, she suddenly discovers that music might not be her only passion.

After a fallout back home, Colby Grant decides to leave his family’s farm, determined to show his father he’s more than just a wanna-be country singer. With his All-American good looks, it doesn’t take long for girls in his new town to focus their eyes on him. But things aren’t what they appear from the outside, and it isn’t long until Colby feels he doesn’t fit into the perfect world that so quickly embraced him.

A chance encounter places Hensley in Colby’s path, but it isn’t her natural beauty that first captures his attention – it’s her voice.

When love and music mix, will the combination blossom into a beautiful melody or wither into a heart-wrenching tune?

EXCERPT

My mouth stops licking and my hands stop palming her breast as I tilt my head up to see her face. She starts to sit up, so I roll over. Now I’m the prey and she is the one doing the kissing. She doesn’t lie down on top of me like I did her though; she stays sitting up, shirtless with her hair cascading down her naked chest. Bringing one of my hands up to her mouth, she kisses my fist and then opens my hand and places small pecks on each of my fingers. I feel like I’m going to come undone at any minute. My dick twitches in my jeans, and the throbbing is almost too much to handle, but we’re doing this on her terms. If there’s no romantic music, and everything else I wanted to plan for her first time, then the least I can do is allow her to be in control.

She’s the master; I’m just the puppet along for the ride now and she is holding the strings.

SARAH’ REVIEW

Colby leaves home to escape after a tragedy has left his family in shambles. His father has turned to drinking to numb the pain and Colby is always fighting with his dad. After one too many fights with his dad Colby decides to leave home early to go to school and pursue his dream of making it big in the music industry. He finds an apartment to rent with a guy named Dusty who also happens to be Hensley’s best friend. After one encounter with Hensley, Colby knows that she is exactly what he needs to be happy with life again.

Hensley wants to make it big in the music industry and move out of town. Her mom is always telling her to avoid men and never let them hold her back. The minute she sees Colby she is immediately attracted to him but fights it tooth and nail. She is offered a singing contract and immediately moves out of town leaving everyone in her life behind. She soon realizes that this life is not worth it without her family and friends by her side to support her. I was really upset with Hensley when she just up and let without worrying about everyone else’s feeling.

I really enjoyed the connection between the characters. I love how Dusty was always there to support Hensley and Colby waited for her when she went to chase her dreams. In the Lyrics is a story about letting go of the past, moving on, and making your dreams come true right beside the ones who mean the most to you. I can’t wait to see what Nacole is working on next.

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I absolutely love Nacole’s writing style. I have read and fallen in love with every one of her characters.
