Book: Begging for Hale (Hale Series #2)

Author: Marie James

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Releases: 14th July 2015

Synopsis

Alexa Warner, an easy going, free spirit, has never had a problem with jumping from one man to the next. She likes to party and have a good time; if the night ends in steamy sex that’s a bonus. She’s always sought pleasure first and never found a man that turned her down; until Garrett Hale. Never in her life was she forced to pursue a man, but his rejection doesn’t sit well with her. Alexa aches for Garrett, his rejection festering in her gut. The yearning for him escalating until she is able to seduce him, taste him.

Garrett Hale, a private man with muted emotions, has no interest in serious relationships. Having his heart ripped out by his first love, he now leaves a trail of one night stands in his wake. Mutually satisfying sex without commitment is his newly adopted lifestyle. Alexa’s constant temptation has his restraint wavering. The aftermath of giving into her would be messy; she is after all the best friend of his cousin’s girlfriend, which guarantees future run-ins, not something that’s supposed to happen with a one night stand. Yet, the allure of having his mouth on her is almost more than he can bear.

With hearts on the line, and ever increasing desire burning through them both, will one night be enough for either of them?

This is the second book in the Hale Series. 

Book 3 in the Hale Series is Josie and Kaleb’s story: Hot as Hale

Recommended for readers 18 and up due to strong language and explicit sexual content.

Clever. Steamy. Inspiring.

You fell in love with Harper Young as Megan Sullivan’s fiercely loyal, feisty best-friend in Breaking Love. As a talented art director at Style Magazine in Manhattan, she lives a life of glamour, managing to put a safe distance between herself and her painful past. One spring day, she answers a call that will change everything. Her father has had an accident and needs Harper to go home to Boulder, Colorado to care for him. Given an ultimatum by her boss, she chooses family, leaving her career behind. She drives across the country to find that the only man to make her heart ache with desire will be her new neighbour. Now, living in a city with a past that haunts her, she finds herself falling for Evan Donovan, a hot-as-hell contractor and her big brother’s best friend.
When Evan Donovan isn’t on a construction site, he is usually hanging from a cliff somewhere. He’s been dealt a rough hand when it comes to love and now believes in keeping things simple. His wife left him just as the recession forced him to shut down his home building company. Now after three years of strict perseverance, he is finally back on top again and he intends to stay there. But when Harper Young drops into his life, things are going to suddenly get complicated. He finds himself wondering why he never noticed her when they were teenagers. He resolves to stay away from his best friend’s little sister but the pull he feels to her is just too strong. Harper and Evan quickly find themselves in each other’s arms, trying to fool themselves into believing that they won’t fall in love.
Will Harper’s glamorous life come calling before she can overcome the humiliation of being in a town where everyone knows about her past? Will Evan overcome his inability to trust? The clock is ticking as these two perfect-for-each other people decide if they can make that final leap.
Lose yourself in Harper and Evan’s romantic journey as they fight for their forever.

Book: Hollywood Royalty

 

Author: TS McKinney

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

 

 

 

 

 

Synopsis

 

Victoria Winstead.  My parents are the reigning King and Queen of Hollywood and since I am their only child, that clearly means I am a pampered princess who is accustomed to getting everything I want, when I want it, and how I want it…and right now, I want the most coveted role in Hollywood.  One thing stands in my way.

 

 

Grayson Leman.  This bastard is the only son of the reigning Prince and Princess of Hollywood and I hate everything about him; always have and always will.  Our families have a history and it isn’t pretty.  It’s ugly; Hollywood style. Oh yea, he’s the one thing standing in my way.

 

Annabelle Hutchinson. The creation of a writing trio that has managed to rock the entire female population with their erotica novel, Dark Lovers.  I’m not kidding you one bit.  They have single-handedly brought mommy porn front and center and made it not only acceptable but sexy as hell. A movie deal was made and I am literally (this is embarrassing to say) having to actually fight for something for the first time in my life. 

 

Not to worry though…I am Hollywood royalty.
