Come and meet the band if you are brave enough ladies in this exclusive interview:
Interview written exclusively for the Blog Tour

Stevie J. Cole on what it would be like to interview Pandemic Sorrow.

“They’ll be in a few minutes, Tiff. You ready?”
 
I nod and smile. “Yeah.” Shit. I’m nervous.

Todd opens the door to the conference room but stops to look back at me. “They’re a lot to handle. Just don’t….provoke them or anything.”
 
“Provoke them, what are they freaking rabid animals?” I laugh.
 
His gaze trails down to my chest, and his lips lay flat across his face. “No, that’s enough to provoke them. Might want to pull that up a little.”
 
I huff, and Todd walks out the door. Muffled voices filter through the other side of the door, laughter. Shit. Shit. Shit. I’ve interviewed countless rockers since starting at this magazine company, and I have never been this anxious. I mean, hell, it’s Pandemic Sorrow. Jag Steele, Stone Steele, Rush…and that drummer whose name I can’t ever remember. Jack, Travis…Pax!

The door swings open and my breathing ceases for a second.  Jag struts in. I have never in my life seen a man with so much swagger. He’s dressed in a tight black v-neck, jewelry draped all over him, and his jeans—my eyes instinctually fall to his crotch—holy shit, those pants are tight. 
 
I‘m so focused on how tight Jag’s pants are that I completely miss the other guys trail in and take their seats.
 
“It’s real, wanna touch it?” Jag chuckles and I feel my entire face redden.
 
“Ah, no. Nice gesture and all.”
 
He shrugs and yanks out his chair, turning it around as he adjusts his junk before straddling it.
 
I sit, staring around the room. I realize I must look like a complete idiot, and I clear my throat. “So, let’s start with a simple question for each of you. What was the driving force behind your pursuit to fame?
 
Jag’s lips curve in to a delicious smile. “Pussy. Lots of pussy.”
 
Rush laughs as he leans over the table toward me. “For me,” his eyes skim down to my low cut top, “the promise of nightly orgies.”
 
Oh, fuck. I am in for it. I need to divert my attention away from these two whores. Where’s that drummer? I eye Pax, who’s not even looking in my direction. His chin is slumped to his chest, and all I can see is his spikey blonde hair. I think he’s asleep.
 
“Uh, Pax?” He slowly raises his head. “What drove you to fame?”
 
“I dunno, money?
 
“I actually have a worthwhile answer, unlike these shitheads.” Stone taps his fingers on the table. “I wanted to do something everyone told me I couldn’t.
 
I can’t stop the ridiculous smile making its way over my lips. Damn, Stone is hot. Those brown eyes, those cheekbones, that hair. I’m swooning, not going to lie. “Okay, next question is for Rush. Rush, if you had to be something besides a rock star, what would it be?
 
“Oh, that’s easy.” He stands up, grabs the edge of the table and pelvic thrusts against it so hard it scoots an inch across the floor. “Hands down, a porn star. James Deen can go fuck himself because his measly nine inches don’t have shit on my man-cock.” He laughs as he collapses back down in his chair.
 
I giggle, and his face goes all serious.
 
“No, really. A porn star.”
 
Jag shoves him so hard he knocks him out of his chair. “Rush, you couldn’t be a porn star. You don’t have any fucking stamina.”
 
“I’ve got loads of stamina.”
 
“Like shit you do—”
 
“Hey!” I shout. They both turn to look at me, and for a moment, I’m afraid I just really pissed them off. I timidly clear my throat. “Next question. Stone, what’s it like working with your brother?”
He smirks. “I mean, when I’m not babysitting his ass, it’s tolerable.”
 
Jag is too busy making lewd hand motions at Rush to be offended by that, so I go on to the next question on my list. “So, guys, what’s it like to be Pandemic Sorrow? It must be incredible to be so famous?
 
Pax shrugs as he mumbles, “It’s cool.”
 
Rush tosses his hands in the air. “Fucking amazing! Are you kidding me?” He shakes his head as he grins. “I can’t even explain to you how amazing this shit is. I keep thinking I’m going to wake up and find out I’ve been in a coma or something, and that I’m still just fucking up drive-thru orders at Burger Boy.”
 
“Yeah, it’s pretty awesome.” Stone nods. “Surreal. That may be the best word. It’s surreal. It’s weird to be flipping through the radio and hear your song on there. Sometimes, I don’t even feel like I am that dude.”
 
I smile politely. I love all of his down to earth comments. Unlike the other perverts in this room, he seems so adorably sweet. I glance over at Jag. It seems like he has checked out momentarily. He’s staring down at his hands as he fidgets with one of the rings on his finger. “Jag, what about you. What’s it like to be so famous?”
 
He glances up at me, his face completely void of any emotion. “Oh, uh. It’s great. Really.” Pausing, he wipes his hands down the legs of his jeans. “You know, paparazzi following you around, so you can’t even shake your dick without it making a headline. Always a party, always a show, always fans screaming at you. Yep. Couldn’t be better.”
 
That didn’t seem authentic in the least. Honestly, he looks miserable. What do I say to that? Nodding, I say, “I can’t imagine. It must be tiring.”
 
There’s an awkward silence. I flip through my tablet and find the next question. “So, we had some fans write in with questions they wanted you guys to answer. One fan asked that each of you describe your perfect mate.” I look over at Rush. “Why don’t you go first since you want to be the porn star and all?”
 
His lips curl, his eyes twinkle, and then he smirks. “A girl that likes company in the bed. Kinda like—” He narrows his gaze on me as he arches a brow. “You gonna publish all the stuff I say, right?”
“Yeah, unless you ask me not to.”
 
“Oh, no. I want this in there more than anything else I’m gonna say.” He clears his throat, smiling proudly. “A complete freak, kinda like I imagine Jules would be. She’s our assistant manager. We all know she likes being treated like a dirty slut.”
 
“Uh, Rush, you probably shouldn’t—“
 
“Oh, no, she expects shit like this. Seriously though, I need a freak.”
 
Jag groans. “Yeah, sure, Tink looks like a freak. Rush, she looks like she’d be a damn lame lay.” He leans over the table as he thumbs his lip piercing. “I need a girl that would put me in my place every once and a while.”
 
“That’s a good answer, Jag.” I turn to Stone and my cheeks heat. “What about you?”
 
“Honestly, I can’t even think about that. I’m so consumed with my career, I know I would be a shitty boyfriend, but I do like short girls.”
 
Yep, swooning again. “Pax, what about you?”
 
He shrugs. God, he has no personality whatsoever. “Oh, just give me a girl that hasn’t been rammed by these three fuckers and I would be good.”
 
Jag flips him the bird. “Fuck off, Paxton.”
 
“You sick of sloppy seconds, drummer boy?” Rush asks as he shoves him.
 
Pax swats Rush’s hand away. “Fuck you dick dribbles, don’t get all pissy just because I didn’t want to join in for your orgy last night,” he shouts.  “I don’t like slapping dicks with you sick fucks.”
I can feel my jaw hanging open. They are arguing with each other; yelling, cursing.
 
The next thing I know, Stone is waving his hand in the air to get my attention. “Tiffany?” He whistles.
 
I glance over at him, and he is sitting there so relaxed like none of this phases him. He smiles sweetly at me. “I assure you, none of them know how to use their dicks the way I do.”
 
Oh, hell. Compose yourself, boo. I think I’m getting sweat stains under my arms! Oh, crap! I hear a loud bang. Jag just threw Pax on the floor, and Rush is laughing. This is a disaster. Smile, smile…
 
Stone stands and walks over to me. “They’ll knock each other out eventually. And while they are…” he swats a stray piece of hair from my face. “Why don’t I go knock the fuck outta you?”
 
I shouldn’t, I know I shouldn’t, but this is Stone Steele. I take another quick look at the three guys rolling around on the floor, then eye the door.
 
“Come on, you pretty little thing.” Stone barely touches his warm lips to mine before pulling me toward the door.
 
I am most likely going to get fired from the magazine now, but I don’t really care. I mean, who in their right mind would turn this guy down? 

Jag (Pandemic Sorrow #1)

WARNING: This novel contains explicit language, sexual situations, and is the story of an addict. This material is intended for a mature audience. 

“My name’s Jag Steele. I’m the lead singer and guitarist to the band Pandemic Sorrow, and I have a drug problem. Well, I mean it’s not really a problem – unless you count the fact that I almost made my heart explode from all the blow I shoved up my nose a few weeks back…” 

That was my introduction during my first stint in rehab. I’m messed up. If you asked anybody who I am there’s a list they will go down: Famous, rock star, legend, drug addict, womanizing man-whore, but if you asked me, I wouldn’t have the first idea of what to say, because I don’t know who Jag Steele is. Really, I’m living every other damn person’s dream, and all I want is reality. 

Roxy Slade, that girl was my reality. My brutally flawed and beautifully broken reality. And she hated everything I stood for. To her I was just one of “those guys”, and she’d rather be buried alive with poisonous snakes than give someone like me a piece of toilet paper to wipe their ass with. Brutal. Life. Is. Brutal. And it is just a giant pain, which is why I chase after anything to make it numb, anything that can fill this void. I just want anything that can make me not feel. I just don’t want to feel.

Rush (Pandemic Sorrow #2)



It’s my job to play music, to make girls wet, and then to screw a select few of them. I’m a professional rocker. I’m rich, I’m famous, I’m one lucky son-of-a-bitch. I have everything – except control.

The industry owns me. And the only thing I have a minuscule grain of control with is women, but not that dominate, tie you up and gag you kind of control. No, I want to govern how I make them feel. I need them to feel like a goddess while I’m in them, and I love being able to control the fact that they’ll never really have me. Love is complicated. It is bullshit. And even if I thought I needed it, the rules of being a rocker won’t allow it. 

Sex is all I need. 

I don’t need love.

But for some reason I want her. For some reason I can’t get her out of my mind. And lately, every time I’m with any girl besides her it feels wrong.

I can practically have any woman I want, but I can’t have her. She’s off limits because she’s part of that industry that owns my ass. 

Sex was all I had.

And sometimes I thought maybe love was all I needed…with her

Roxy (Pandemic Sorrow #3)


My life had been no fairy tale. Actually, growing up, it had been something more like a nightmare, which is why I ended up so hard. When you don’t want to hurt having the ability to be numb is your best defense mechanism. And for a long time all I was doing was existing.

Jag Steele, the lead singer of the international rock band Pandemic Sorrow, was the epitome of everything I despised: arrogant, entitled, but the thing I hated most about him was that he was an addict. Drugs had been the demon that had ruined everything in my life, and anyone who had a love affair with them pretty much made my stomach turn. It brought up memories I wanted to stay buried. Needless to say, I wasn’t exactly a fan of Jag.

Funny thing is, people aren’t always who you expect them to be. Never in a million years would I have thought the night I meet Jag would have any significance on the rest of my life, but it did. 

I found out that sometimes something that screams utter destruction might actually be your saving grace.

Some people may say our story is too screwed up to be a romance, but for two broken people, we made the pieces fit together perfectly.
 

Roxy (Pandemic Sorrow #3)

 


Pandemic Sorrow Series (Jag, Rush, & Roxy 3-in-1)


Three-in-one rocker boxset. 

Sex, drugs, and rock and roll. The life of a rocker is gritty, and for the boys of Pandemic Sorrow, it’s exhausting. Their existence is one of sleepless nights, binges with drugs, and the daunting task of pleasing women…lots and lots of women. Life is one endless party, and for both Jag and Rush, it’s a path of utter self-destruction. 

Warning: Jag and Rush are from a male point of view, and are very…male. They are vulgar and explicit and may have to work their way through a few fans before they find a woman who can tame these rocker’s inner whore. All books contain explicit language and sexual situations. 

Box Set:

Review ~~ Just One Lie by Kyra Davis

Rating:

23492689

Just One Lie (Just One Night #2)

by Kyra Davis

synopsis

The long-awaited follow-up novel to the runaway New York Timesbestseller Just One Night—which Publishers Weekly gave a starred review and proclaimed, “Davis skillfully creates an uplifting story in which sex is presented both as freedom and as a metaphor for power, and where raw chemistry is the clear winner over bland complacency.”In the instant international sensation Just One Night, sensible Kasie Fitzgerald unleashed her passions—and found herself—through an explosive affair. In Just One Lie, we meet Kasie’s wild and tortured sister, whose impulsivity and lack of self-control has set off a chain of events that changes her family forever.

Melody Fitzgerald is the opposite of the “perfect” daughter. The lead singer of an indie rock band, she is impulsive and creative, with a rebellious streak that both defines her and becomes her greatest enemy. Her lover, the enticing and unpredictable Ash, shares her free spirit and penchant for trouble. On the face of it, he seems to be her perfect match.

So why is she so drawn to her soft spoken, reliable drummer, Brad Witmer? How can a man who wears polo shirts and reads the financial section of the paper be of any interest to her at all? And why on earth does someone like that appear to be so captivated by her?

Before she knows it, Melody finds herself on a path of self-discovery, passion, and affairs of the heart. But will a dark secret from her past derail it all? Or will its exposure be the very thing that unburdens her heart and allows her to seek a future with the one man who loves her completely?

 

REVIEW
Louisa’s 4 star review

Mercy – otherwise known as Melody – has reinvented herself.  After her family essentially “killed” her, she started in New York a new person.  She left behind Melody and became Mercy!  The singer in an indie rock band,  living out her dream. Singing, in front of a crowd. Something she has always wanted to do.  It’s her new reality.  Until the one person, other than her family, who has had the most impact on her life returns.  Ash, her one night stand returns to find her, she thinks that maybe just maybe her life will be back on track.  But can she be back with the one person who ruined her once?  Is he everything she hopes he will be?

Then we meet Brad, her band mate who will try to help her heal.  Mercy is damaged, dark and has a twist of secrets behind her.  Brad is the boy-next-door, khaki pants wearing drummer that may help her heal, if she would only allow him.  With her past, Mercy is unwilling to trust, because that is what Melody would have done, she wants to be as far from Melody as she can.

This is the first book by Kyra Davis that I have read, and I am surely going to add her other books to my TBR list.  She is a talented writer that got me into Mercy’s head, had me feeling her emotions as if they were my own. I cried, happy and sad tears with Mercy.

Just a great story with everything a girl can want out of a book.  Great characters with depth, real life struggles, some seriously crazy sexy scenes and maybe even a second chance for someone we all want to be happy in the end.  But can Mercy allow herself the happiness is the question.

I so enjoyed watching the transformation of Mercy in front of my eyes and I know you will also. Congrats to Kyra, she hit this out of the park!

The Adventures of Clarissa Hardy by Chloe Gillis Excerpt

 
The Adventures of Clarissa Hardy
by Chloe Gillis 
Buy on Amazon | B&N | Kobo

It’s the 1920s and Clarissa Hardy is the very definition of the sometimes scandalous New Woman. The moment Clarissa finds herself free of the shackles of her suffocating virginity, she is keen to explore new territories. Curious and courageous, Clarissa books passage on a luxury liner bound for England. After receiving a titillating education from a fellow libidinous lady traveler, Clarissa disembarks in London and, dressed to the nines in her beaded and fringed fashions, proceeds from adventure to amorous adventure, reveling in delightful debauchery. Clarissa knows exactly what to do with her body. It’s what she learns about her heart that ultimately takes her by surprise!

Clarissa, still leaning against Eleanora, opened her eyes.

Kono was standing before her, completely naked.

“I will fuck with you now,” he said. As Eleanora had described in her letter, Margaret stepped forward and took Kono’s large cock in her hands. She squeezed and massaged it, holding it out as Moya stepped forward, bringing it to life with sucks and licks. Kono’s cock was the longest, thickest cock Clarissa had ever seen. He smiled broadly as he approached her.William looked mischievously at Andrew. “What say we try to both go in at once? How’s that, Clarissa? Do you think you could take it? Two cocks in a bush?”

The young men laughed. Clarissa laughed and spread her legs. “Why not?” she said gamely, “Have a try!”

Both on their knees, each man hoisted one of Clarissa’s legs. Clarissa felt herself being stretched as the two cocks were pushed together into her cunt. At last Andrew collapsed in laughter. “Stand back, old chap,” he said to William, “I’ve not had my turn yet. Clarissa, prepare to be fucked once again!” Clarissa smiled up at him. Andrew took both her legs and bent them up over her shoulders, ramming his cock home as he did so. He fucked her with a passion that brought the heat of another climax washing over her again, pumping in and out until he fell over her with a groan.

The plump, blushing orbs were exposed on Clarissa’s lap. “You have a most adorable bottom!” exclaimed Clarissa. She felt them all over, squeezing and pinching, kneading and spreading them, until she herself felt a sudden surge of passion. Slowly, slowly, she ran her index finger down between those sweet mounds until she could feel the wet place and the pulsing clit. Sinking three fingers into Eleanora once again, she fucked her with her fingers until the older woman squirmed and gasped. Clarissa suddenly ceased and withdrew her fingers. Reaching for a small wooden box on the table, she took out the dildo, poured oil on it and inserted it deep into Eleanora. “Be still, Eleanora,” said Clarissa, “I am going to leave it in you while I examine you. I want to see everything about you.”

Who would have thought the antics of a hot little number from the Roaring Twenties would cause me to have to divulge so many specifics about myself! Well, you asked for it. I’m Chloe Gillis, Boston Irish to my core. I was born in Cambridge. I’m an only child. My dad is a history professor at Harvard. My mother, from County Tipperary, was a student of his before she became his wife. She’s an anthropologist and spends half her time digging in peat bogs in Ireland. The other half of her life she spends being wife to my father, flirting with post-docs, and waiting for my husband and me to get busy and give her grandchildren.

Believe me, we’re busy, but children are a ways off. My husband is fifteen years older than me, but judging by his abilities and aptitudes, I think he’ll last awhile. My husband owns a large accounting firm in Boston and bears a remarkable resemblance to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, which is very nice. Oh, this is supposed to be about me, isn’t it!

I am an academic librarian at Boston College. It’s nice because academics are still important there. Anyway, physically, I’m small, with long blonde hair, which I wear in a tight bun when I work. I guess I look a little like Clarissa. In fact, the book flowed so smoothly at times, that I got to thinking that she might be an ancestor, and the story imparted to me by some sort of genetic memory.

My husband and I live in a vintage Victorian in Cambridge not far from Harvard Square with an Irish wolfhound, a French bulldog, and three cats. I know, I know. We’re reaching critical mass in the city pet department, but they add a lot to our lives, which are really quite regimented. The worlds of accounting and library science couldn’t be more disciplined, organized, or, frankly, dull.

I think Clarissa called to me from the quiet of the stacks. Sitting at my desk, staring blankly down the dim hallways of books, or into the depths of my screen saver, which is a picture of me with my mother, digging in the peat in Ireland, I daydream about meeting my husband back at our house later in the evening. I picture myself going into the house. He’s already at home, and he takes me around the waist with his big hands, pins me against the wall, and reaches up under my skirt.

Maybe it’s the intellectual order of our jobs, binding our libido every day, that makes us give in to our more corporeal urges when we’re alone. At any rate, one daydream leads to another and so Clarissa and her adventures were born. She just took it farther than we ever have!

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Do you enjoy the view?” King Edric asked.

“The rains have made the gardens bloom, and it warms my heart to see it so.”

“It is good to know that the gardener approves of the work.”

Cyrene laughed lightly. “I have not gardened in a month’s time. I fear I can no longer call myself a gardener.”

She remembered when she had told the king of her interest in gardening at the last feast day almost a week ago. After that dance, Queen Kaliana added a list of plants to her assignment, forcing her to reread every page she had already dredged through for information. It had wasted two entire days.

“Perhaps I could change that,” he offered.

He directed her down the staircase and into the courtyard below lit solely by the setting sun in the distance.

Her stomach churned at the thought of him offering assistance to any of her needs. It was like what she had read in her children’s books of the tales of Leifs, and how one request would be necessitated by a much larger sacrifice. Her biggest sacrifice at the present moment was time. She wanted nothing more than to finish her work on agriculture and prove that she could get moved somewhere that involved traveling…and adventure.

“On the contrary, My King, I am fully enthralled in my Affiliate duties, and believe that gardening would only distract me from my work.”

“You cannot spare one afternoon to spend in my gardens?” His blue-gray eyes searched her face. “If you have half the green thumb you suggest, then it would be delightful to have you on the grounds.”

She swallowed. “I really have much work to accomplish before we go on Processional.”

“I could speak to the Queen and request it be lessened,” he whispered into the evening air.

“No!” It was the first time he had ever admitted to discussing her with the Queen. Hearing him admit it aloud made her voice come out strangled.

Cyrene missed her footing on the pebble path and stumbled forward a pace. Edric steadied her. He turned his body to face her in the middle of the garden, and her breath caught at the sight of him in the setting sun.

“You do not wish me to speak to the Queen?”

“I spoke out of turn. Please forgive me.”

“I cannot forgive that which I do not understand. Did the Queen somehow offend you?”

Cyrene shook her head. “I fear that the Queen does not…like me.”

Edric laughed softly, taking one of her hands in his own. “Oh Cyrene, I believe that the Queen likes no one but herself.”

Cyrene found that she, too, could laugh at his comment.

“Now, tell me what the Queen has done to make you believe that she dislikes you.”

“It’s nothing, my King.” She turned her face away from his. She couldn’t possibly tell him the real reason.

“Enough to infuriate you, which is enough for me.”

When she looked back up into his blue-gray eyes she felt that same magnetic pull between them. Somehow she had not realized how close they were standing. His hand felt warm against her bare skin. His body only a few inches away from her. His breath hot on her face. Her heart contracted in her chest, and she forced herself to respond.

“She speaks of…of your interference, as if…as if you…”

Time stretched between them, and she thought for a split second he might move even closer to her. She was rooted in place, captivated by his gaze.

“Yes?” His other hand drifted to her waist, and she was suddenly on fire.

Their breath mingled together as she murmured, “As if you favor me.”

“And do you think that?”

“I…”

“Yes?” he asked, stepping closer.

“I think you have your queen,” she breathed.

The Bourbon Kings by JR WARD

Rating:

The Bourbon Kings (The Bourbon Kings #1)

by J.R. Ward 
synopsis
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood delivers the first novel in an enthralling new series set amid the shifting dynamics of a Southern family defined by wealth and privilege—and compromised by secrets, deceit, and scandal…. For generations, the Bradford family has worn the mantle of kings of the bourbon capital of the world. Their sustained wealth has afforded them prestige and privilege—as well as a hard-won division of class on their sprawling estate, Easterly. Upstairs, a dynasty that by all appearances plays by the rules of good fortune and good taste. Downstairs, the staff who work tirelessly to maintain the impeccable Bradford facade. And never the twain shall meet.

For Lizzie King, Easterly’s head gardener, crossing that divide nearly ruined her life. Falling in love with Tulane, the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty, was nothing that she intended or wanted—and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right. Now, after two years of staying away, Tulane is finally coming home again, and he is bringing the past with him. No one will be left unmarked: not Tulane’s beautiful and ruthless wife; not his older brother, whose bitterness and bad blood know no bounds; and especially not the ironfisted Bradford patriarch, a man with few morals, fewer scruples, and many, many terrible secrets.

As family tensions—professional and intimately private—ignite, Easterly and all its inhabitants are thrown into the grips of an irrevocable transformation, and only the cunning will survive.

REVIEW

 

Our 4 STAR REVIEW

So this is a hard book for me to rate. I almost DNF’d it. That would have been a shame. The first 25% was way too wordy and I felt like I couldn’t get anywhere with it. I found my self getting lost in words and trying to remember what she was talking about again. I messaged my blog partner and was all, gahhhhhh, this is hard…

bf

but then suddenly the build up had a purpose. Things happened and the book moved along. I found myself lost in (in a good way) typical JR WARD fashion.

I’m not even sure I can classify this as a romance, maybe mystery? It doesn’t really matter because what this ended up being is a no holds bar, drama at every turn, amazing story. It’s also a beginning. So many more things have yet to play out and once you get past that dreadfully boring 25% you are completely entranced with this plot!

I can not wait to see where it’s going and other books in this are going to be picked up by me right away!! I have to know what happens to all of the players. I need to know how all of the siblings stories play out. What really happened to dad? What about the business? Oh Edward, I have to know about him too!

So much is left unsaid and I want more like tomorrow. So get past the start of this book and I promise that at about 25% you will be like BAM there it is.

Blog Tour and Giveaway~~ Wicked Fall (Wicked Horse #1) by Sawyer Bennett

WickedFallTourBanner

Wicked Fall (The Wicked Horse Series Book #1)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: July 28, 2015

Synopsis:

Never in your wildest dreams could you begin to imagine all the filthy and depraved things that go on inside The Wicked Horse. Step inside and Woolf Jennings will make every one of your dirty fantasies come true.

He’s covered in a facade of deception. An enticing blend of multi-millionaire and hot-as-hell Wyoming rancher, those that think they know Woolf Jennings admire his abilities to preside as CEO of his family’s cattle and oil empire. But only a privileged few truly understand what fuels the glitter of depravity in those gorgeous blue eyes. Only a few know he’s opened up a sinfully erotic and private sex club named The Wicked Horse right at the base of the beautiful Teton Mountain range.

Sweet Callie Hayes has returned home to Wyoming and is looking forward to starting her life over again. After a night of impetuosity, she’s managed to put herself right in Woolf’s line of sight… the man who she foolishly offered up her virginity to years ago and was flatly turned down.

Now Woolf is seeing that Callie is all grown up and has a kinky side to her that leaves him as confused as it does turned on. Worse yet, both Callie’s dirty desires and sweet heart are getting under his skin, and making Woolf question everything he’s ever believed about himself.

RealWolfNicole’s 4.5 Star Review

What is it about a cowboy? Seriously. Is it the hat? The way they sit a horse? The way their jeans hug their…? From John Wayne to Tim McGraw (I know he isn’t a cowboy, but really, the way he looks in a cowboy hat and jeans makes him a cowboy in my book!), there is something about them. In Sawyer Bennett’s newest book, Wicked Fall (Wicked Horse #1), we get our cowboy fix and then some.

When Callie Hart comes back to town after finding her lawyer fiancé taking a beating from a vinyl wearing judge, she decides that it’s time to leave the “Old Callie” behind and find out who “New Callie” wants to be. Wanting to make the change NOW, she goes in the exact opposite direction of her former life and enters a wet t-shirt contest at The Wicked Horse. Just as she is about to announce to herself that she is a new woman, her night is interrupted by the incredibly hot bar owner who just happens to be her lifelong crush. Woolf Jennings immediately recognizes Callie and jumps in to save her from certain embarrassment. And that right there is all it takes for both of them to realize that they aren’t kids anymore, and times have changed.

The chemistry between Woolf and Callie is amazing. They have circled each other before, but this time there are no reasons to hold back. When Callie discovers the other side of Woolf’s business, she wants to see it, and maybe be a part of it. Woolf isn’t too keen on any of this, but his attraction to Callie doesn’t necessarily allow him to think clearly.

Sawyer Bennett’s writing is rock solid, as always. Her characters are fun, sexy, and deeper than they seem on the surface. I love that about her writing. What I really love is how with each new series or book, she pushes boundaries and buttons. With as many books as she has written, you may worry that things are new stories on old themes, but they are not!! Sawyer Bennett’s writing keeps getting better and better, her stories fresh and her characters more layered. I’m really looking forward to the next installment in the series. If it’s anything like this one, it’s gonna be a wild ride!

AUDIBLE

LOUISA’S 4.5 STAR AUDIBLE REVIEW

Have you ever read anything from Tarryn Fisher yet?  Listen to me and listen good…you need to get to Amazon and get a Tarryn Fisher book immediately.  She has such a unique style. This was the first Tarryn book I read and I am so glad I had a chance to listen to the audible. It has been over a year since I read this book so the audible was like a whole new experience!  It was like reading (or listening) to a new book!

Olivia, Caleb and Leah are a few character you will always remember.  They will all go to any lengths to get what they wants. Olivia’s biggest problem is Leah.  The new woman in Caleb’s life.  This woman will make you want to hurt another human, like you have never wanted before. Leah is absolutely deplorable, the scum of the earth, but as you read more and more Tarryn books, you will learn, she can write some crazy women like no one else.

The narrator Andi was fantastic.  She was able to do Caleb’s British accent and the bitchy Leah like no one’s business! I am so looking forward to Dirty Red.  Oh this Leah is going to have me losing it!  But I just can’t wait!!!!

 KRISTINE’S 5 STAR REVIEW

Finishing unwritten by M.C Decker left me running in a corner rocking til I had to tell myself everything would be okay!  That M.C wouldnt do that to us…that things would change in the next book…so i waited and waited.  Got through all the amazing teasers and a  beautiful cover reveal and ahhh finally I had it on my kindle!  So remember how above I said she wouldn’t do those things!  Well I was so wrong!  There I was sobbing in just a few pages…a few pages I say!  My emotions were all over the place..when I thought I was in the clear, that everything was okay..BAM..shock and fusteration hit again!  Even though it seems like Im a little angry I’m sooo not!  I loved it!!  M.C definitely brought out the shock and emotional factor and I loved each and every second!  

I loved this second book about Brooke and Rich’s story! It was perfect in each and every way!  The journey i took with them was real!  Love and Marriage is full with happiness, obstacles, and mystery. The thing is…is it all worth it? Are you strong enough or love eachother enough to get through the sh** to find the happiness?  

What an amazing job M.C did!  Her books keep getting better and better!  Im so proud of her!  She is definitely one author I look foward to seeing  her spread her wings and fly!  Now the wait starts again with her next book…but I know the wait is so worth it!!!  

“This isnt goodbye, Brooke. I waited for you for ten years once before.  I’ll wait for one hundred more if I must.”  ~Rich.

Excerpt Logo

Prologue

December 2012

It’s been three months since my life changed in the blink of an eye. I was planning a wedding to the most amazing man – a man who I already thought I’d lost once. Fortunately, he hadn’t given up on us and he had found me again. In the short time we were together, he taught me to trust – to trust in love, to trust in him and to trust in us.

I was an up-and-coming, government editor at the Washington Post – partly because of Rich and partly because of my hard work, perseverance and dedication. I loved my job. It was my dream come true.

Rich had also given me the best gift possible when I found out that I was pregnant. At the time, I didn’t know I even wanted children of my own. It wasn’t really something I thought too much about. I was over thirty and hadn’t been in a committed relationship for a number of years, but once I saw those two little pink lines – I wanted nothing more than to be a mom.

We were planning a Christmas wedding. I knew I would be showing by then, but I had always dreamt of getting married surrounded by glowing evergreens. In fact, Rich and his best man, Blake, had already used their connections and secured the Weather Room on the sixty-seventh floor of Rockefeller Center. Typically, the room was only available from January through mid-November, but Rich and Blake were quite a team and once they batted their eyelashes a few times, the event coordinator caved and allowed us to rent the private space for December 15.

It would have been beautiful, overlooking the magical tree that Rich had taken me to a year earlier. I was so stubborn at that point. If only I had opened my heart to him then, maybe I wouldn’t be sitting here alone now – on the same day that was supposed to be the happiest day of my life.

Just as the first of the day’s tears started trickling down my cheeks, I heard a light knocking on my door. Seriously, I feel like I’d been crying since that day in September. I didn’t think it was possible to have so many tears stored in the human body. I was hoping that eventually they would just dry up, but I was starting to believe that would never happen.

Rising from the couch, I padded my way to the front door. Looking out the peephole, I saw Cassidy waving at me from the other side. I was relieved to know I wouldn’t have to spend the afternoon alone. Earlier, I had insisted that my father go out for the afternoon even though he reassured me time and again that he would cancel his plans.

I had moved back to Michigan right before Thanksgiving. I tried to make it work in Washington D.C. and at the Post, but it was just too difficult. The memories, idle curiosity and constant condolences proved to be too much. I knew everyone meant well, but I just needed to grieve my loss on my own.

I opened the door to my best friend’s outstretched arms.

“Awww, honey, you should have called me earlier. I would’ve been here hours ago,” she said, as I buried my head in her chest.

“This was supposed to be the happiest day of my life, Cass. What happened? Why did I let this happen?”

“It’ll get easier, Brookie – you’ll see,” she added reassuringly, as she ran her fingers through my tangled hair. “Why don’t we pop in a movie – I just so happened to grab Magic Mike out of the Redbox on my way over,” she said with a wink. “If Matthew McConaughey’s voice alone can’t make you ‘O’ then we have more serious issues than I thought.”

“Ohmigod, I think you have officially lost your damn mind,” I giggled. “But, thank you. You always seem to know what I need. And, a naked Channing Tatum is just what the doctor ordered.”

Just as I was setting a bowl of popcorn on the table and getting myself comfy on the couch, my phone rang. I startled from the sudden noise and reached out for it. Looking at the caller ID, I just stared at it for a few more rings.

“Cass, you need to answer it. I just can’t take this right now – especially not today.”

Blurb

Most people know Hollywood heartthrob, Ryan Summer, as Ryan, no last name required. But once upon a time, he was just Summer to Carrie Ann—before a decade of blockbuster hits skyrocketed his success into superstardom.

Summer was smart, gorgeous, and cocky as hell. Nothing was out of his reach. Not even Carrie Ann Lowell. He was the love of her life—until he shattered her heart. Their breakup left more than a profound rift in her soul. It crushed her.

When Carrie Ann’s college flame forces his way back into her life, his dirty-talking, bold self-assurance re-ignites a passion she thought had long since been extinguished. Carrie Ann didn’t believe in second chances.

Not even for him.

No matter how deliciously tempting.

With sparks flying and hidden truths unraveling, will Carrie Anne be able to deny her desires to save herself from another heart break?

LOUISA’S 4 STAR REVIEW

If you haven’t had the chance to meet The Matthew’s Family, you really need to find the time.

This sweet, damaged woman Carrie Ann will make your heart break…over and over again. She is so determined not to allow Summer (aka Ryan) back into her life that you just may scream at your kindle and throw it across the room!  I think if I was in her position I wouldn’t have protested so darn much.  That was my only draw back with the book. She just wouldn’t let go and go with her feeling.  She was almost ready to relent a few times and I was on the edge of my seat! I knew that when and if she relented, their would be some FIREWORKS.

Then we have this man Summer.  He is determined to win back Carrie Ann.  The moment presents itself and they have the opportunity to be alone. They HAVE to work it out.  Summer made me swoon quite a few times.  He was always so respectful of Carrie Ann. He didn’t pull the “alpha male” you might expect from this Hollywood superstar.

Like I said, take the time, read this book. You will not be disappointed!

An ARC was provided to Blushing Babes Are Up All Night for an honest review.

EXCERPT 

Carrie Ann tugged the earbud free from her ear, tossing the handsome young man a small smile. “Sorry, I couldn’t hear you. What did you say?”

He crossed a lanky somewhat defined arm in front of her, casually gripping the handlebar of her bike. “I said, you must be exhausted—” Before she could reply he continued, “—from running through my mind all day.”

Surely she must’ve heard him incorrectly. He was probably fifteen at most sporting a baby face and a patch of ten whiskers on his chin. Her brows tucked into a furrow. “Excuse me?”

A dose of youthful overconfidence drifted over his mouth in a sharp grin. “I seem to have forgotten my number. Can I have yours?”

“My phone number?” Carrie Ann scanned the near vicinity, row after row of workout equipment, for the practical jokester responsible for the madness. “Ha ha. Very funny. Who put you up to this?”

Her amusement only encouraged the boy’s macho bravado. “No one put me up to anything. I need a date. I just got into LA and I’ve got this Red Carpet event—”

“A date?” she scoffed at the ludicrous suggestion. Though she looked young for her age, Carrie Ann was still all of thirty-four years old.

“Yeah, you know. A date. You, me, hundreds of fans screaming as we stroll down the Red Carpet.” His voice cracked emphasizing the words Red Carpet…for the second time. A self-absorbed twinkle gleamed in his brown eyes as if he expected her to melt and drop to her knees right there in the gym.

“Kid, you’re barking up the wrong tree.”

“I’m totally serious. My uncle has this movie premier and I can’t just bring anyone.” A chunk of blond hair fell on his forehead and he flipped his head to the side. My date needs to be…hot, and well, you’re the hottest girl I’ve seen since I got to LA.”

She sneered at the absurdity. Silliness turned to annoyance. Carrie Ann switched gyms a few months back, paying out the nose to invest in her fitness and more importantly her privacy. Her last gym was more crowded than a cattle call casting session.

Carrie Ann rolled her eyes. She moved around him, gathering her workout towel and reaching for her bag. “Look kid, you seem real sweet, but—“

“You’re right about one thing.” A familiar voice, deep and perfectly modulated, approached from behind. “She is the most beautiful woman you’ll ever lay eyes on. But, you’re reaching for the stars with this one, Drew. She’s a heartbreaker.”

An ice cold tickle ascended up her spine raising the hair on the back of her neck. Her head snapped, glancing over her shoulder, colliding with a pair of rich amber eyes from her past. Without breaking eye contact, Ryan Summer strolled right into her personal space sporting athletic shorts, a fitted muscle shirt and a killer smile.

Nowadays, most people knew the Hollywood heartthrob as Ryan. Just Ryan. No last name needed. But after nearly a decade of blockbuster hits and infamous relationships that skyrocketed his success into superstardom, to Carrie Ann, he was still just Summer. Her old college flame.

“Funny, I could say the same about you,” she countered his jab, marshalling a bit of annoyance in her tone to combat the rush of heat spreading to her already pink cheeks.

A sexy smile caught the curve of his wide firm mouth. “Hello, Red.”

“Hello, Summer.” Carrie Ann tossed a trivial nod toward the teenager. “Who’s this? Your new apprentice?”

“Apprentice?” Moving a step closer, he dragged his fingers through the short cropped layers of sandy blond hair. “This is Mark’s boy. Do you remember my nephew, Drew?”

“Your brother’s boy?” she questioned in surprise. Avoiding the view of his bicep curling into the size of a softball, Carrie Ann ran a quick scan over the young man at his side. “Whoa, you had to be four or five years old the last time I saw you.”

“I don’t remember meeting you.” Drew’s eyes flickered with bemusement and optimism.

She extended her hand. “I’m Carrie Ann. I knew you when you were—“

“You’re Carrie Ann? The Carrie Ann?” The boy spun toward his uncle, his blue eyes broadened in disbelief. “The One?”

Her stomach twisted hearing the title. A flash of perspiration instantaneously flooded her palms. Before she had time to renege on the clammy greeting, Drew clasped her hand, giving it a polite shake.

A low rumble of laughter simmered in Summer’s chest and a rosy shade of red burnished high on the bridge of his nose. He nodded, “This is The Carrie Ann. The One who got away.”

No matter how many years had passed, it never got any easier to see him. Each time she did, she suddenly found it harder to breath.

The pounding of her heart quickened as her gaze slipped over his rugged well-defined features. A three day scruff accentuated the slight dimple at the bottom of his chin. The disheveled layers of hair were wet from exertion near his temple and nape. Time had been very good to him.

She felt the warmth of his hand close around the back of her bare arm. The early morning stubble of his beard brushed against her cheek as he leaned closer pressing a small kiss near her temple. Carrie Ann squirmed at his nearness, ducking to the side attempting to put some space between them.

“I’m…I’m all sweaty,” she insisted breathily.

“It’s okay,” he murmured softly in her ear. The heat of his breath brought chill bumps to the damp skin near her neck. “I remember enjoying you all sweaty.”

Ryan’s golden eyes locked onto hers, anchoring her feet to the floor. The penetration of his stare momentarily tied her tongue in a knot, turning the awkward moment even more difficult. Carrie Ann hadn’t bumped into Ryan in at least three years and she hadn’t seen him covered in sweat in ten. An image of him, gloriously naked, flashed in her mind and her thighs. Frustration mounted as her body willingly betrayed her.

Carrie Ann’s jaw set rigid contemplating the idea of flipping off her hooha for its insubordination.

“That was a long time ago,” she snipped abruptly.

“Seems like only yesterday to me.”

Blog Tour and Giveaway~~ The Blyss Trilogy by JC Cliff

Rating:

div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”>

Series: The Bylss Trilogy

Author: J.C. Cliff

Genre: Dark NA Romance

Release Date: Available Now

Blyss is something the world has been trying to create since the beginning of time, the ultimate aphrodisiac, a drug used against women with one single purpose in mind ….

Julianna Oakley has just finished up her junior year at college and flies home to spend her last free summer with her father on their prestigious Georgia estate. Julianna isn’t the stereotypical rich girl, a spoiled prima-donna. She’s down to earth and has an independent streak a mile wide, insisting she makes her own way in this world.

Nick has been setting the stage for a long time, and sparks fly when their separate worlds collide. She is Nick’s ultimate obsession, and he will stop at nothing to own her.

When Travis, Nick’s right hand man, lays his eyes on the prize, all hell breaks loose. He should know Nick is playing for keeps, and while Julianna is fighting for her freedom, a lifetime full of secrets and twisted perceptions slowly unravel as Julianna gets caught in the fray.

Nicole’s 4 Star Review

You know when an author writes a warning at the beginning of a book that you are in for one heck of a ride. Let me tell you, she wasn’t kidding when she said that Blyss: The Blyss Trilogy – book 1 was going to push some reader’s limits for dark and mind-messing!! Wow! BLYSS takes you on a journey of suspense, lies, and intrigue.

Julianna has gone home for the summer to stay with her father before starting her senior year of college. What should be a just a normal summer at home quickly goes from normal to SAY WHAT in just a few pages. Julianna’s world is turned upside down when she is kidnapped by a man who has stalked her for years. Throw into the mix that he wants her “trained” for his pleasure and the mystery of who, what and why all of this is even happening, and you have one HECKUVA book.

There are so many layers to this story. There is whole captive/captor attraction where the captor just happens to be HOT. Then, there is the obsessive, somewhat sinister, bad guy who wants what he wants, and will have it at any cost. THEN, there is the whole Bylss aspect. I can’t tell you what that is as it would spoil A LOT for you, but suffice it to say it’s wrong, it’s whacked and oh so very naughty.

Truthfully, Blyss is the kind of book that tests your boundaries of right and wrong. You may find yourself thinking how something so wrong could be so right, or why aren’t you horrified or disgusted by what’s going on. Regardless, this is a great book. The storyline is fresh and unexpected, and the characters are so much more than they seem. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book, Blyssful Lies. I have no idea what to expect, but I bet it will be amazing!

Dawn’s 4.75 Star Review

BEWARE OF Blyss!!! This book may cause you hot flashes!! You will also experience a bundle of mixed and contradictory emotions. It’s so wrong but so right!! It had me hooked from the beginning. The subject matter is dark but the book is not. It reads like a romantic suspense thriller with erotica thrown in!

Poor Julianne has been stalked and taken away from everyone she loves. She’s been taken, held captive and drugged up on the ultimate aphrodisiac, a drug called Blyss. It turns women into the perfect companion and submissive. She is being trained for the leader in this business, Nick. He’s been obsessed with her for years. Nick comes off as an evil, egotistical, selfish bastard. Thinking Julianna is his. He may think he knows everything about her but he did not realize how resilient she is. She will not go down without a fight. She has a lot of self preservation and will. But how long can she hold onto herself and sanity???

Julianna’s only hope seems to be Nick’s partner Travis. He shows Julianna comfort and kindness. The minute you are introduced to Travis, you are drawn to him. He’s not only classy and charming but gorgeous. He knows how to handle the ladies. His connection with Julianne is so evident. Sparks fly and passion ignites. Holy hotness!!! But are their feelings real?? Feelings or not, Travis knows she isn’t his to take. You know you should hate him and all that he stands for… but you can’t, it’s like you are drugged up and helpless also. Falling in love with a criminal. Like I said, so wrong but so right!!! Is Travis showing his true colors or just what he wants Julianna to see???

Julianna finds herself is a precarious situation with no way out! Trapped, alone and scared. Should she just give in or fight for her freedom???

I was engrossed in this book. It was hard to put down. It will leave you wanting more and dying to know the out come. It’s has a great flow with not one dull moment. It’s hard to believe it is a debut book because it is written so well with such an ease…… I can not wait to get my hands on book 2!!

Learning how to survive in her new world, Julianna has no choice but to play “The game of Life.” Except it’s Nick’s game, and his rules apply. Captivity, drugs, and submission are the cards that are dealt, and it’s a losing game. 

Biding her time as she waits for her rescuers, it’s far from smooth sailing, because all too quickly the rules abruptly change as Nick takes matters into his own hands…

As the drama unfolds, and hesitating to interfere, Travis has everything to lose should he decide to step in, including his life.
 It’s opposition at its finest – freedom versus control as Nick and Julianna face the ultimate battle of wills.

While Travis has the uncanny ability to manipulate her with a single touch, Nick struggles to conquer her body, mind, and soul.

It’s every man for themselves as each have their own secret agenda, including Julianna, whose plan is simple: survive.

Nicole’s 4 star Review

Ok…so when I finished the first book in the Blyss Trilogy, I said I had no idea what to expect in the second book, and boy was I right!! Blyssful Lies is FULL of never-saw-that-comings, oh-no-he-didn’ts and get-outs. Picking up where Blyss left off, the head-spinning triangle of sex, deceit and manipulation continues with Julianna in a battle of wills with the obsessive and barely controlled Nick, and trying to deny the attraction she feels towards Travis. Julianna’s and Nick’s constant back and forth reminded me of a passionate tango that was at once graceful and intense. It was sexy and disturbing with Julianna being betrayed by her own body when Nick’s tenuous control pushes her to her limits. Her interactions with Travis were so totally different from Nick’s, yet they were just as full of heat and power. In a series of wild events, she comes to rely on Travis in ways neither expected. This love/hate triangle is one of the most intense I’ve read with its plot twists and constant action.

Again, I can’t say much more than this because the risk of spoilers is too much. I will tell you that Blyssful Lies is one hell of a ride. I didn’t always know who was coming or going, but I knew that I didn’t want it to stop. And the ending!! Holy Batman! I have NO clue what will happen in book 3, but it promises to deliver more of the holy cows and no ways that the first two books gave us!

Dawn’s 4.5 Star Review

This book is a perfect continuation of book one, Blyss!! These books give you a bit of everything and they leave you at the edge of your seat… breathless!!! It is one hell of a ride!
We get to see just how obsessed Nick has been with Julianne…. he has stalked her for years… just waiting for the perfect time to pounce! He is such a contradiction. One minute sweet and loving… the next cold and ruthless. He is the epitome of a wolf in sheep’s clothing! Now that he has her, he will do everything and anything to break her. Julianne does not plan on playing along. She will lie and plot. but intimately push Nick to the brink…. she has bigger balls than most men. She a smart resilient chick. She adapts to any situation thrown at her!
There is one person who can save Julianne… but he is the one who broke her trust. Travis has everything to lose…. and possibly everything to gain!!?? His true colors come out… all his walls are crumbling. He’s vulnerable, compassionate, protective and completely loving. Can he put Julianne’s life above his own?? you will need to read to find out!

 

This is Julianna’s story. She lived a normal life until she was about to turn twenty-one, and then all hell broke loose. Years of diabolical scheming unraveling at the seams, unleashing torrents of lies and deceit. The whirlwind of chaos and heartbreak will forever change the game.

Her chosen fate is one of stellar proportions, and she struggles to keep sane, trying to hold it together every step of the way. As the matrix of her concealed past unfolds to deliver the final blow, rationality and sanity begin to take on a definition and meaning of its own.

Nick thinks he’s the night in shining armor while Travis believes he will be enough to save her from herself, but does she even want to be saved?

Both men want her. Both men love her, and both men want to claim her, keeping her for themselves. But, as usual, Julianna has other plans.

**The Blyss Trilogy: An Adult Dark Romantic Suspense.

This contemporary erotic captive romance book is full of suspense, action, and adventure. This is a dark, erotic thriller that will have you hanging on to the edges of your e-reader as you wonder which alpha male you want to fall in love with. Will you be team Travis or team Nick?**

J.C. Cliff is an independent author who strives to deliver a strong story line, keeping the reader captivated throughout. She loves the element of surprise, creating unique twists and turns while creating thrill and suspense. Oh yes, and lets not forget, making a little explicit romance happen in between.

She’s a die hard 80’s rock’n roll fan, and loves a good concert! JC wears many hats. They include wife of 24 years, 4 children, small business owner, writer, reader, and what ever else is required of her. She loves taboo stories with twists and turns, and full of suspense. 

When she’s not writing mind-blowing twists and turns which include erotica, she likes to spend her time with her family and friends. Her pastimes include: offshore fishing, learning anything new, sewing, spending time at the beach, or the mountains.
