NEW RELEASE!! Runaround by Jay Crownover

Can two people perpetually moving in opposite directions ever end up in the same place? Or will love just keep giving them the runaround?

Webb Bryant is intimately acquainted with every type of trouble there is. Trouble is all he’s ever known and the only constant in his life.

Webb’s a man constantly on the move. He’s a drifter. A wanderer. He bolts from one bad choice to the next, never able to put enough distance between himself and the ghosts from his past. He lives hard and fast, until everything comes to a screeching halt the moment he lays eyes on Tennyson McKenna. The stunning woman appeared out of nowhere to save the day, and Webb’s been unable to forget her. The leggy, blonde forest ranger might very well be the one person in the world important enough to finally keep him in one place. Only, Ten isn’t impressed by Webb’s knack for finding trouble. And no matter how hard he tries to shake it, he can’t escape his bad habit of falling into the deep end of questionable decisions. When his newest brush with trouble gets Webb in way over his head, Ten jumps after him into the dangerous waters. It’s possible they’re going to sink so fast they both might drown.

Tennyson McKenna makes it a point to be diligently cautious in all aspects of her life. She learned the hard way that leading with your heart instead of your head gets you nowhere.

Ten’s a woman stuck in a frustrating rut. After a string of failed relationships lands her back home, a pit stop to mend her broken heart becomes a hole she’s lost the will to dig herself out of. Coasting through her days was easy until Webb Bryant crash-landed in her path, complete with bullets, blood, and a grin far too charming for his own good. Webb is anything but safe and predictable. He’s everything Ten swore she would never gamble on again, but it’s impossible to ignore the way trouble follows him around like a shadow. And every single time Ten pushes Webb away, she finds herself chasing after him before he’s gone for good. When Webb’s past finally catches up to him, Ten has to decide if she’s brave enough to put her heart on the line for a man who might be gone tomorrow.

~TENNYSON~

The first time I laid eyes on Webb Bryant he was frighteningly pale from blood loss and nearly delirious from a raging fever. He’d been sporting a hole in his shoulder from a bullet wound and was terrified his brother was dead somewhere in the vast Wyoming wilderness. It was my job to protect and patrol, one I focused on diligently, but Webb was admittedly distracting. I thought he was going to pass out at my feet, a city boy in way over his head. He didn’t. He never wavered or stumbled in the unfamiliar terrain and unknown situation…not once. He’d impressed me with his resilience and his determination to find out what had happened to his older brother. He’d also caught my attention with those burning blue eyes and shock of blond hair, which gave the misleading impression that the man had a single angelic quality about him. Every long, lean line of Webb Bryant oozed playful mischief and bled the promise of wicked things done in the dark…or during the bright light of day. He didn’t seem like the shy type. Even injured and out of his mind with frantic worry for his older sibling, he was the most charming, most flirtatious man I’d ever met. He sent every defense mechanism I had into overdrive, and there wasn’t a second that slid by where I didn’t remind myself he was not my type in the slightest. Besides, once the Warners and I had both the Bryant brothers straightened out, I figured I wouldn’t have to dodge Webb’s advances ever again. He would ramble on to his next adventure and be out of sight and mind.

I breathed a sigh of relief when he went away. He was too tempting. It was too enticing to give in to every single promise made by his easy smile and glinting eyes. Webb was several years younger than me, a man who was obviously lost and still trying to figure out who he wanted to be when he finally grew up. I was a woman who knew exactly who she was and who she could never be. I was never the type to chase after the bad boys, the wanderers, the reckless. No, I fell for the steadfast, the sturdy, and the solid. I gave my heart to the kind of men who held the world up and buffered everyone around them from the raging storm.

I handed my heart to the oldest Warner brother, Cyrus, when we were just kids. Coming to terms with the fact the stoic and serious cowboy would never feel about me the way I felt about him had been one of the hardest things I’d ever had to do. We shared similar dreams, knowing our lives were so much bigger than the ranches that had our family’s bloodlines entrenched in the soil. We both wanted more than Wyoming, and for a long time, I honestly believed we were on the road out of our tiny town together. It didn’t happen that way. Sure, we both got out in our own time and in our own way, but we both ended up back where we started. Cy was taking his return home in stride. He was far less resentful about his homecoming than I was. In fact, the wedding Webb was dragged out of two short days ago was Cy’s.

I thought it was going to be hard, damn near impossible, to watch the man I’d openly loved from afar for most of my life promise his forever to someone else. It wasn’t nearly as bad as I envisioned. Mostly because Cy was stupid happy with his fiery city girl. He’d never been that happy with me, before we left or when we both admitted defeat and came back home. He’d never loved anyone like he loved his Leo, so the sting of watching him put a ring on someone else’s finger was minimal.

I would gouge my eyes out with a rusty spoon before admitting to anyone, especially myself, that since the start of the wedding most of my attention had been on Webb instead of the happy couple. To my surprise, my heart didn’t feel nearly as trampled as I thought it would. It was too busy stupidly racing over the man I believed I wouldn’t see again and knew I should keep my distance from.

The blond man with a penchant for trouble hadn’t stayed gone like I predicted. Nope. He’d shown up right when Cy needed help on the ranch and offered to stick around. Webb claimed he wanted to learn a new skill, seemed he’d taken a shine to the rough way of life in the Wyoming backcountry and wanted to play cowboy for a while. Cy couldn’t say no, and as badly as I wanted to, I couldn’t stay away. I was caught in an endless game of cat and mouse, and some days I wasn’t sure if I was the predator or the prey. I tracked Webb out of the corner of my eye for months. I expected him to up his game and try to lure me to bed, knowing the wedding was going to lower my defenses. Never in a million years would I have predicted he was going to be led away from the festivities in handcuffs.

Royally Screwed by Sienna Blake ~ Sarah A’s Review

Prince Grayson.
Heir to the British throne.
Sexiest man I’ve ever laid eyes on.
For some strange reason, he wants me.

I can see the red-hot lust flaring in his eyes when I near. Can feel the thick, long evidence of it when he presses up against me.

And I want him. I want him so bad it hurts.

One week.
No strings.
Just unbridled, wild passion with a future king.

Except he has one condition.

One that has me thinking I might be in over my head…

He won’t give me what I want unless his two bodyguards join in.

Warning: This is a sexy-as-sin, reverse harem romance. Can you handle three huge alpha men focused on her pleasure and taking it all the way?

Now with Bonus Novella: Royally X’mased

It’s Grayson and my first Christmas together alone on our own private island. Or so I think…

When I return from the beach, I find the front door ajar. Waiting for me are three masked men with a dangerous and sexy surprise so fucking hot it’ll melt my bikini right off.

***  AVAILABLE IN KINDLE UNLIMITED  ***
Amazon

I’m finding myself quite obsessed with these Quick and Dirty novellas from Sienna Blake. This novella wasn’t quite as emotionally riveting as the previous two, but it packed a lot of punch in other ways. I love a good forbidden romance, and the relationship between Sophia and Grayson (and Chase and Nicolai) in Royally Screwed was forbidden to the max.

I have a strange relationship with insta-love, sometimes it works for me, and sometimes it doesn’t. The connection between Sophia and Grayson hovered just on the dividing line for me. There were moments I felt their chemistry intensely and other moments where it felt forced. In those scenes where I could feel it, their connection was all consuming. And most of those moments were when they were alone together. I could understand why Grayson had carried out all previous liaisons with Chase and Nicolai because they felt impersonal to me.

As a forbidden romance, Royally Screwed really worked for me. I loved that Sophia challenged him and he was able to see what his life looked like from a different perspective through her. They had a fascinating back and forth when they were together, and I could feel the genuine care and affection they had. I could have spent a lot longer exploring their love story and them finding their own way through a lifestyle that isn’t always receptive to outsiders and commoners.

As a reverse harem novel – of which I have limited experience – Royally Screwed didn’t work for me. I can appreciate the relationship between one woman and multiple men if there is a deep and abiding love between all of the parties, but there wasn’t that connection in this book, so it fell a little flat for me.

My wishes for this book would mostly be in the ties to the Chase and Nicolai. I never felt the draw there between them and Sophia, so a lot of the scenes involving them felt more gratuitous than anything. Based on the original publication of this in the Royal and Reckless anthology, I wonder if this wasn’t the first of these reverse harem books Ms. Blake wrote, because the other two far outshined this one regarding the connections between all the characters. There were also a handful of editorial issues, typos mostly, that need to be cleaned up. I also would have loved to had seen more of Nicolai’s backstory and hope to find out his mysteries sometime in the future.

Royally Screwed is the third book in Sienna Blake’s Quick and Dirty series. These novellas are all complete standalones, with no character or content crossover. Royally Screwed was previously published as part of the Royal and Reckless anthology and has been re-released with a bonus novelette. Royally Screwed is written in triple first-person perspective, narrated by Sophia, Grayson, and Nicolai.

I used to think I was one of the lucky ones.

But at twenty-six, I’ve left my life in New York behind—my perfect fiancé, my stylish friends, my high-flying marketing career—and moved to Ireland.

Truthfully, my perfect fiancé is now my ex after I walked in on him face-deep in my best friend’s p***y.

And my career? It’s over. Because that cheating ex-fiancé of mine… he owns the company I worked for.

I know. I know. Don’t screw your boss. Trust me, I’m never making that mistake again.

On my way to the remote Irish farm I’m now working on, my car hits a ditch. I’m rescued by the three sexiest men I’ve everseen.

The three Irish O’Callaghan brothers.

Broad shoulders, strong arms, accents that make me wet just to hear them.

I want them. All of them.

I know they all want me.

Plot twist…

Turns out they’re my new bosses.

***  AVAILABLE IN KINDLE UNLIMITED  ***

Five years I’ve been kept under the control of Ireland’s most vicious gang leader. Now that I’m eighteen, he’s forcing me to marry him. I’d rather die a thousand deaths.

I escape to the only place I can be safe–home of my captor’s biggest rival, the Irish Kings.

There’s X, the living weapon with a haunted past. His vicious touch helps release all this anger in me.

Jace, the teddy bear with a warrior’s heart. His melodic Irish brogue is a balm to my soul.

And Magnar King, their intimidating leader. Whose eyes flare with hunger when I’m near, yet backs away like I’ve burned him when we touch. He doesn’t remember me. But I remember him.

They’re all so different. But they all make me feel safe. They awaken needs in me—strange needs.

want all of them.

But I just might need all of them to heal.

NEW RELEASE!! Rock Rebel by Tara Leigh ~ Sarah A’s Review

He’s a rock star with a secret, she’s a pop princess with a painful past – can their forbidden romance survive, or will their lies destroy them both?

I’ve earned my bad reputation.

A few years ago, I was New York City’s hottest classical music prodigy. But I wanted something else, something more. So I chased my real dream, and now… I’m rock royalty. Dax Hughes, lead guitarist of Nothing but Trouble. But to my family and former Juilliard classmates, I’m an outcast. A misfit. A rebel.

They’re not entirely wrong. I don’t give a damn what other people think, and I’m all for breaking the rules… except when it comes to our new opening act, Verity Moore.

Rock gods don’t tour with pop princesses.

It’s not personal. Actually, under that fallen diva reputation, Verity’s incredibly talented. And her fiery redheaded personality is… intriguing. But I’m convinced the skeletons in Verity’s closet are as scandalous as my own, and when we’re not sparring, she has a way of drawing out all those secrets I’m determined to keep hidden.

Yeah. Verity Moore is definitely off-limits . . .

But since when do I give a damn about the rules?

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo

Rock Rebel is my first foray into the work of Tara Leigh, and I was pleasantly surprised.  I always read new to me authors with a healthy dose of skepticism, I’ve been burned too many times not to.  Tara Leigh showed a lot of promise with this book, and I quite enjoyed the ride she took me on in Dax and Verity’s story.  I especially appreciated the depth and timeliness of the #metoo storyline, and how the social climate we’re living in today played such an instrumental part of Verity’s growth.

Verity’s story was heartbreaking but all too real.  From her mother’s exploitative treatment of her to the things she was forced into while she was far too young to be making those kinds of decisions, her life had never been her own.  Seeing her take the reins and fight for the life and opportunities she wanted made me happy.  When she stood up to the people who’d done her wrong my heart burst for her.  Verity was a marvelous character, and I loved seeing her learn to love and trust herself, as well as take the steps she needed to protect herself and find justice for the things she’d endured in her past.

Dax had an idyllic life when juxtaposed with Verity’s, but in reality, he hadn’t had an easy road either, his struggles just looked a lot different.  He’d spent so much time ignoring the hurts he’d been dealt; I’m not sure he even realized how much they’d affected him.  When he finally pulled his head out of the sand and faced the problems he’d buried, it was almost as if a new Dax had arisen, one who wasn’t so cynical and aloof.

Dax and Verity were great partners.  From their electric physical connection to the way they each saw beneath the façade they’d constructed to show the world, it was easy to see why they needed to be together.  I especially loved the consideration they showed one another and the understanding they each displayed, the kind of understanding that can only come through having lived through similar pain.

I have a few wishes for this book.  First, I needed more clarity on the timeline between Dax and Verity.  By all indications in their interactions a few weeks would pass, but then we would check in on a secondary timeline that is very much established and set in stone and months would have passed.  It was jarring and took away from the experience for me.  Secondly, there were these random chunks of text that felt incongruous with the rest of the writing in the book.  It was as if someone else had written specific passages and they had been copy and pasted into the novel. Lastly, the climax resolution between Dax and Verity felt lacking to me. I would have loved to have seen them work through their problems on page rather than just jumping to everything being okay.

Rock Rebel is the third book in Tara Leigh’s Nothing but Trouble series.  These books are interconnected standalones and can be read independently.  I have not read the first two books in this series but had no trouble understanding what was going on in Rock Rebel.  There were enough innuendos into the relationships in the previous books to make me want to read the books, without giving away too much of their stories.  Rock Rebel is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Verity and Dax.

Tara Leigh is a multi-published author of steamy contemporary romance. A former banker on Wall Street, she graduated from Washington University and holds an MBA from Columbia Business School, but she much prefers spending her days with fictional boyfriends than analyzing financial spreadsheets. Tara currently lives in Fairfield County, Connecticut with her husband, children, and fur-baby, Pixie. She is represented by Jessica Alvarez, of Bookends Literary Agency.

NOW AVAILABLE!! Across the Horizon by Aly Martinez ~ Sarah A’s Review

 

“Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair. 

I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouth-watering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike. 

Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine—or six.

Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it… 

So does heartbreak.

***  AVAILABLE IN KINDLE UNLIMITED  ***
Amazon

When I heard Across the Horizon was lighter than Aly Martinez’ usual work, I was unsure, part of what I love about her books is how heavy they are. I had no reason to fear, Ms. Martinez did a fabulous job of keeping the mood of the book up while still incorporating some more profound moments.

I loved Tanner when we first met him in The Darkest Sunrise duet and was so happy to watch him find his happily ever after. He and Rita were a mismatch on the surface, but once we got to know them more deeply both alone and as a couple, it was quite evident they were a match made in heaven. Tanner’s patience and charm were a great counterpoint to Rita’s apprehension and sass. They were so well-developed it made it easy to believe in them and want to see them whole and happy.

Across the Horizon was riveting. I couldn’t put it down once I opened it, I was obsessed with Rita and Tanner’s romance. Aly Martinez did a superb job of balancing the humor and banter between her characters with the heartache and healing they had to go through because of their pasts. I loved each moment I spend in these pages and all the heart and soul that made the ride so fascinating and emotionally rewarding.

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.

All of Me by AL Jackson ~ Sarah A’s Review

People call me callous. Arrogant. Ruthless.

I call myself tenacious.
One of the most powerful attorneys in Charleston, I don’t let anyone or anything stand in my way.
Until a chance encounter changes everything.

One glance.
One touch.
One night.
It only leaves me wanting more.

But Grace is off limits. Most people would even say forbidden.
Everyone knows an attorney can’t sleep with his client.
Too bad I already did.

And even with the threat of losing everything, I don’t know if I can stop myself from having her again…

Amazon | Audio | SIGNED PAPERBACK

Occasionally I read other reviews between finishing a book and writing my own review, just to see if what I was feeling in a book was the same as what other people were. I did that with All of Me and noted that several people had an issue with their insta-lust. I suppose it’s something you can only appreciate if you’ve experienced it. Personal aside: I met my husband when I was 16 and he 20 (far too old at that point in my life), after a less than five-minute interaction I compared every other person I dated to him until the day I married him, six years later. Sometimes your heart and soul know better than your rational mind. All of that to say, I loved the fact that their connection was instant and intense.

I loved Ian and Grace’s love. Even before either of them was ready to admit that was what was happening between them, their connection was bigger and more beautiful than anything they were looking for, anything they wanted. They both ran from it, their fear ruling their choices, but neither of them could fight the pull back to the other, and that was what made their relationship so special.

We’d seen a little of Ian’s story in the first book in this series, More of You, and I was so happy we got to finally see his tragic childhood and what had formed him into the man we’d met. His history was dark and the guilt he carried immense. My momma heart broke for him and wanted to wrap that poor boy up and keep him safe. Grace’s story was no less heartwrenching, and I connected with her deep-seated need to protect her babies with every molecule of her being. Together they gathered all their broken pieces and made something magnificent and impenetrable.

My only wish for All of Me is that it be a little less predictable. I could see every twist and turn coming a mile away, and it dampened my reading experience. I know all of the pieces have to be in place to make a story come together, but a lot of the plot points in this book were just too convenient.

All of Me is the second book in AL Jackson’s Confessions of the Heart series. The books in this series are interconnected stand-alones and can easily be read independently of one another. All of Me is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Grace and Ian.

My daddy warned me never to fall for a boy like Jace Jacobs . . .

The second I saw him walk through the door, I knew he was trouble.

A gorgeous rebel with a bad attitude and a huge chip on his shoulder.

My heart warned me. I didn’t listen. I saw something protective and good beneath the fierce, tough exterior.

I fell hard and fast.

He promised we’d be together forever, and then left me with a broken heart.

Now, ten years later, Jace Jacobs is standing at my door.

Sexier than he’s ever been.

Provocative and commanding.

Successful and powerful.

The man I always knew he would become.

But I promised myself I’d never lose my heart to him again.

Even time couldn’t dim our chemistry. One glance of his intense eyes, and I become weak. One brush of his hand, and he brings me to my knees.

Little do I know, Jace holds the key to everything I’ve lost and everything that threatens my future.
Now he will either save me, or he will break me all over again . . .

Wild Collision by Micalea Smeltzer ~ Sarah A’s Review

He was a beautiful nightmare.

Mia Hayes is comfortable with her life as it is.
Boring is good.
Boring is normal.
Boring is safe.
But the thing with boring is it makes temptation all the sweeter.

She was a sweet dream.

Hollis Wilder goes a hundred miles an hour after everything he wants.
Fast is fun.
Fast is crazy.
Fast is dangerous.
But the thing with fast is it keeps you from thinking before you act.

Together they were the notes in their favorite song.

When Mia and Hollis collide—literally—music’s new bad boy can’t help but notice the beautiful red-haired woman with soft curves. She calls to him like a siren, and since the word no isn’t in his vocabulary he’s determined to get what he wants.

The problem is, one night won’t be enough, and the fact that Mia is his mentor’s daughter complicates things royally.

Mia’s the one girl that’s off limits, but she might be the only one he wants for real.

***  AVAILABLE IN KINDLE UNLIMITED  ***
Amazon

Sweet, swoony, and funny, Wild Collision was a fun read. There were some things that didn’t quite work for me, but I could definitely see the appeal of Mia and Hollis for someone else. I didn’t quite feel their connection as deeply as I hoped, but I could feel that it may have been headed in that direction with a little more time.

Mia and Hollis had great banter; I always feel like the best relationships are rooted in couples who can communicate freely and having a good back and forth is a backbone of that kind of interaction. I loved that they knew what they wanted from one another and pursued it knowing what it could cost them. They both had powerful and intriguing personalities and seeing them figure out how to navigate this new dynamic they had was fascinating.

My wish for this story would just be to see a little more connection and chemistry between Mia and Hollis. There was some written, but it felt a little forced to me. What we did see of their chemistry seemed mostly predicated on the physical aspect of their relationship, and I wish I would have seen more of the emotional side of it.

Wild Collision is the first book in Micalea Smeltzer’s The Wild series. This series is a spinoff of Willow Creek series; I haven’t read that series, but I don’t feel like that took away from the experience of this novel. If anything, it made we want to check those books out to see where this all started. Wild Collision is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Mia and Hollis.

He closes the distance between us swiftly, grabbing my face roughly between his hands. He kisses me quickly, desperately. It’s a bruising kind of kiss. One that leaves a path of flames in its wake.

He lets me go and steps away. “I had to kiss you before I couldn’t for the rest of the evening,” he admits.

I touch my lips where they still tingle from his.

He flashes a cocky smile, pleased with himself for rendering me speechless.

“I know I’m a good kisser, but I didn’t know it was possible to stun you into silence. I’m impressed with myself.”

I snap out of my revelry. “I hope you go home and write about it in your diary.”

“Oh, I will.” He smirks.

“Is it pink and sparkly?”

“Of course—I even hot glued my name in sequins on it and the first page is marked with Future Mr. Mia Hayes.”

Hi. I’m Micalea. Ma-call-e-uh. Weird name, I know.  My mom must’ve known I was going to be odd even in the womb. I’ve written a lot of books. Like a lot. Don’t ask me how many, I don’t remember at this point. I have an unhealthy addiction to Diet Coke but I can’t seem to break the habit. I listen to way too much music and hedgehogs have taken over my life.

NEW RELEASE!! Playing by Heart by JB Salsbury ~ Sarah A’s Review

Jesse Lee is the worst!

He’s a multi-millionaire, triple-platinum-selling, Grammy-Award-winning man-slut—a worldly, self-indulgent heathen. I wouldn’t sleep with him if he were our last chance to ensure survival of the human race. The only reason I put up with him is because he’s my boss’s brother.

Whatsherface is one of those holier-than-thou types.

She’s bossy, has a horrific singing voice, and she’s so ordinary, she practically blends in with the eggshell-colored walls—the complete opposite of anyone I’d bang. The only reason I put up with her is because my career is on the line.

Playing by Heart is an enemies-to-lovers romance where opposites not only attract, they ignite.

Amazon | B&N | iBooksKobo

I was 100% sure, about a quarter of the way into Playing by Heart there was no way I would ever get on board with Jesse as a good guy. JB Salsbury did a marvelous job of sending him on a journey of healing and self-reflection that made me see him in a different light, and eventually, I loved him just as much as I was led to believe I would.

Enemies-to-lovers can sometimes be a hard sell for me. It’s hard to make me love someone who proves himself from the beginning to be a jerk. Add into that the famous rockstar aspect, and it’s even harder for me to find redemption. However, Playing by Heart totally delivered in making me hate Jesiah (Jesse), then make me root for him, and finally make me fall in love with him.

The substance abuse facet of Playing by Heart was a big part of the appeal for me. I loved how JB Salsbury used it as a device to develop Jesse’s character, then make him grow. The fact that Ms. Salsbury kept his recovery and cravings for his substances of choice in the forefront for the entirety of the novel made it all feel more real.

While Jesiah may have been the star of this novel, Bethany also had a great growth arc. She was so timid and self-deprecating when the novel started, I wasn’t sure how she could ever hold her own with such a huge personality as Jesiah. Watching her shed her old skin and learn her worth was heartwarming and, though her healing wasn’t as profound as Jesiah’s, it was just as important.

One of my very favorite parts of Playing by Heart was something Jesiah’s brother, Benjamin, said to him. Often in the world of romance, everything is predicated on the feeling of love, but there is so much more to it than that. Ben told him love isn’t a feeling; it’s a choice. I have told the same thing to my children and husband, so it was an incredibly poignant moment for me.

J.B. Salsbury is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband and two kids.

Her love of good storytelling led her to earn a degree in Media Communications. With her journalistic background, writing has always been at the forefront, and her love of romance propelled her career as an author.

She spends the majority of her day behind the computer where a world of battling alphas, budding romance, and impossible obstacles claws away at her subconscious and begs to be released to the page.

NOW LIVE!! Havoc by Kindle Alexander

Keyes Dixon’s life is challenging enough as a full patch member of the Disciples of Havoc Motorcycle Club but being a gay biker leaves him traveling down one tough road. With an abusive past and his vow to the club cementing his future, he doesn’t believe in love and steers clear of commitment. But a midnight ride leads to a chance meeting with a sexy pretty-boy in a wicked hot sports car that has him going down quicker than a Harley on ice.

Cocky Assistant District Attorney Alec Pierce lives in the shadow of his politically connected family. A life of privilege doesn’t equal a life of love, a fact made obvious at every family gathering. Driven yet lonely, Alec yields to his family’s demands for his career path, hoping for the acceptance he craves. Until he meets a gorgeous biker who tips the scales in the favor of truth…and he can no longer live a lie.

Can two men from completely different worlds…and sides of the law…find common ground, or will all their desires only wreak Havoc?

***  AVAILABLE IN KINDLE UNLIMITED  ***

The screen illuminated Alec’s face, and even though Keyes wasn’t religious, he swore he heard the angels sing in that moment… The sight stole Keyes’s breath. He came to a stop directly in front of the tempting driver. Resting both hands on his hips, he got lost just looking at this beautiful man. Keyes opened his mouth to speak. He could absolutely take care of this problem, but the words didn’t come. Instead, he stayed mesmerized by the most gorgeous guy he’d ever seen.

“I have roadside assistance. I just have to remember which app to use.”

Keyes almost lost his bad boy composure when Alec distractedly glanced up from his phone and winked at him. Hold it together, Key. He finally got his head to stop spinning and all the cheesy porn music to quit playing on continuous loop in the background. Alec probably just had a twitch. Why would the guy be flirting with him? On the off chance Alec happened to be gay, Keyes obviously wasn’t his type if the passenger were anything to go by. There was nothing refined or delicate about Key.

Even with the neurons misfiring in Keyes’s brain, he managed to clear his throat and lower his gaze to the grass to help find some fucking perspective. “Where you headed?” Wait. That wasn’t the statement he’d planned to make.

“I live in McKinney. He lives in the Uptown area of Dallas,” Alec answered, reading the screen as he cocked his head toward his putout passenger.

“What’re you doin’ out here?” Keyes asked. McKinney was a long way from the current location and as different as two places could possibly be.

Alec gave a humorless laugh while briefly lifting his gaze from the screen. Curious light eyes pinned Keyes in place. He wasn’t sure he’d ever seen eyes that color. Keyes’s mouth watered, and his cock plumped, homing in on exactly what it wanted. “Google Maps said this was a detour. Hang on.” Alec lifted the phone to his ear. Keyes could hear a faint sound of a voice on the other end. “I’m on some side road in maybe South Dallas, perhaps even North Ellis County. Can you find my location?”

“Listen, I can take care of this. I own a tire shop that’s about fifteen minutes from here.” For the first time since the car had spun off the road, Alec truly looked at him. Their gazes connected for one maybe two heartbeats before Alec’s brow wrinkled and his eyes lowered. Keyes felt the weight of Alec’s stare as his eyes blatantly roamed the length of his body. Not only did his dick stand at attention but the damn thing attempted to parade down Main Street waving a rainbow-colored flag. A range of expressions crossed Alec’s handsome face until the hand holding the phone lowered and those extraordinary eyes were back on his. Had the guy noticed the impromptu party taking place in his pants? Keyes shifted his weight to his other foot.

“I’m Alec Pierce.”

Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!

I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!

Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindle.

I tragically lost my sixteen-year-old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.

That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.

Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.

Through the course of that crippling event, I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love, and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.
