About Falling Under

Front cover, Falling Under by Lisa Renee JonesA new sexy standalone from Lisa Renee Jones…

Ex-special forces, Jacob King, is a man who keeps to himself, having learned the hard way that letting people close to you, trusting them, might just get you killed. A lesson he learned when members of his Special Ops team turned dirty, while others, men he considered friends, died. He made them pay. He made them hurt. He put them in jail. And so he doesn’t trust anyone anymore. He keeps his women hot and fast, his friends few to none, and his clients through the elite Walker Security at a professional distance, but safe.

It works for him. Until it doesn’t.

His newest job should be simple and cut and dry. Jewel Carpenter, the daughter of the CEO of Carpenter Enterprises, is receiving death threats. He’s to protect her and find out who is issuing the treats.

Simple. Cut and Dry.

Until it’s not.

Until the chemistry between he and Jewel is all about love, hate, and sex. But even as he fights the attraction to Jewel and discovers there is more to her than meets the eye, the real threat comes not from the threats she’s receiving, but the connection she has to him. Because his past has come full circle, and those men he’s made pay for their sins now want him to pay. And what better way than the woman in his bed?

EXCERPT

“Just to be clear,” he says, his voice low and rough. “I’m breaking every rule I own with you. I don’t fuck women I’m protecting.”

“You could hand me over to someone else,” I suggest, “and it won’t matter.”

“Not a chance in hell,” he says, his hand sliding under my hair to cup my neck. “We’ll break the rules together.”

“I’m not sure I like how you do ‘together’.”

“I’ll make sure you do,” he promises, his lips slanting over mine, and this time he kisses me like he owns me, like he wants to control me, and like I really am his, like I belong to him, and in this very moment, I can honestly say

I am. I want him, and I can’t get enough of him.

And how can it ever be enough when he’s this damn impossibly hot, and he’s such a damn good kisser. The way he makes me want his mouth on every part of me and the way he makes me want my mouth on every part of him. And so, there it is. I’m his, but I’m going to make damn sure he’s mine, too. I kiss him back as passionately as he’s kissing me. I meet him stroke for stroke, arching into him, telling him I am here and present, and I’m not even close to afraid of him or of this. He doesn’t get to control me. He isn’t making me do this. I control me, and I choose him and this.

Arching into him, his shoulder holster and mine are in the way, and I want them gone. I want him naked. Just to be certain that he knows that’s where I want this to go, my hand presses between us and I stroke the hard line of his shaft. He groans low in his throat, a sexy rough sound that tells me he gets the point. This isn’t his show. It’s ours. It’s us together, or there is no show, with or without our clothes on.

His reaction is to tear his mouth from mine, his lips lingering there though, as if he wants to kiss me again, and just when I would kiss him again, he leans away just enough to shrug out of his jacket. I take one step backward, and do the same with my blazer. I reach down and pull off my boots and he does the same. Next, we disconnect our shoulder holsters, and the truth is, it’s the first time I’ve ever been with a man who is probably more armed than me. That feels significant when it perhaps is not. He’s not a cop. He’s not that kind of career complication. He’s a Green-fucking-Beret, and one hell of a hot one, for that matter.

He sets his weapon on the couch and snags my hand, walking me toward him and taking my holster and weapon as he does. “Just making sure you don’t end up shooting me before this is over,” he says, setting it with his before shackling my hip.

“I told you I’ll wait until after the orgasms.”

“Careful,” he says, a hint of a smile on his lips again. “I might hold that orgasm and you captive.”

“You can try,” I say, but my head isn’t in the game in this moment, and somehow my hand is on his face, right by the almost smile, that seems to have complicated what should be sex, an escape, a way to pull back the emotions that umbrella stirred in me. That smile reminds me that Mr. Robot is his wall, his way to cope with death, with whatever makes him protect Jesse Marks.

He captures my hand. “What are you thinking?”

“That you have on too many clothes,” I say, before I let this go someplace emotional, somewhere that two people like us never want to go.

My hands press under his shirt, but he doesn’t immediately give me what I want. He studies me for several beats and then kisses me hard and fast. Too fast, but I get over it when he pulls his shirt off. He cups my face and kisses me, his hand sliding up my shirt, his touch fire that has me helping him pull my shirt over my head. Letting him drag me to him where he now sits on the couch. I straddle him, my bra somehow gone by the time I’m there. But my hands press to his shoulders, and I hold him at bay. “I will still arrest you if I need to,” I promise. “This doesn’t change that.”

“You aren’t going to arrest me any more than you hate me.” He glances down at my chest, his gaze a hot caress as it rakes over my breasts, my nipples, before his eyes meet mine. “Because you know I’m protecting you.”

I ignore the ache between my thighs. Or I try. “From what? The slayer or the Jesse Marks damage patrol?”

His hand slides between my shoulder blades and he molds my chest to his. “Do you really want to talk about Jesse Marks right now? Because if you ask me questions, I’m going to ask you questions when I’d much rather be inside you, giving you as many reasons as I can not to arrest me. But you pick. Conversation or fucking.”

“Both,” I say, because it’s the truth. I want answers and I want the conversation my emotions are having in my head to shut up. “Fucking first.” I push away from him and stand up, unbuttoning my pants, sliding them down my hips, and he watches me with that unreadable, robot expression that is admittedly sexy as hell. I press my lips to his and that’s all it takes.

We are crazy, hot, kissing, his hands on my breasts, my nipples, my neck. I can’t touch him enough. I can’t feel him enough, can’t get close enough, and that’s new to me. I don’t need anyone the way I feel I need this man. I don’t want to need anyone this much, but it’s too late. At least, right here, right now, I do. He rolls us to our sides, facing one another, the wide cushion of the couch more than holding us and the next kiss isn’t fast and frenzied. It’s long, drugging, and somewhere in the midst of his tongue stroking my tongue, I end up on my back with the heavy weight of him on top of me…

My Review of Falling Under

Falling Under: a Walker Security standalone novelFalling Under: a Walker Security standalone novel by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Falling Under, a standalone Walker Security novel by favorite author Lisa Renee Jones, is probably my favorite of this now 3-book series, and it’s all about the characters.

Jacob King, or “Tin Man” as his Walker colleagues call him, is an alpha beast of a man; a stunningly handsome, foreboding former Green Beret who’s also a lethal assassin with dark, painful secrets that have come to define how he relates to the world around him. He’s smart, cunning, and dangerous, a man who thrives on the adrenaline rush that comes with the most potentially risky and life-threatening assignments; but, more than that, he’s a man who feels he has nothing to live for other than putting himself in mortal danger. It allows him to insulate himself from close relationships and avoid intimate ones altogether. Until he meets Jewel Carpenter.

Jewel – or Detective Carpenter as she prefers to be called – is a steely woman in a man’s world: the New York City police department. Following in her late uncle’s footsteps, Jewel has established herself as a savvy, fearless, street-smart investigator, aware that every case is an opportunity to prove herself equal to her masculine colleagues on the force; always needing to make her uncle proud. She prefers being alone, focused solely on the next arrest and conviction. Until she meets Jacob.

Jacob is hired to protect Jewel when threats from an unknown stalker place her life in danger. However, as you might expect, Jewel neither wants or thinks she needs his protection. He’s a distraction, a nuisance, a force to be reckoned with that she wants to hate, but can’t. She can, however, push every one of his buttons. Likewise, Jacob’s simple protection assignment is made nearly impossible as he is forced to fight with Jewel over every decision, every minute. The two of them together are like a wildfire approaching an oil refinery: Combustible. Explosive. And when the sparks that fly between them ignite, each is quickly overtaken by the flames of long-suppressed passion and all-consuming desire. It takes awhile, but it’s well worth the wait to see this alpha male and his alpha female counterpart struggle for control in a situation that’s anything but. Written in dual POV, the story tells itself in two distinct voices that will linger with you long after you finish reading.

Falling Under is suspenseful from start to finish. There are twists, turns, and misdirections galore in the search for Jewel’s enigmatic, clever, and unrelenting stalker. Even with the power of Walker Security at their disposal, it feels as if the stalker is always one step ahead, and one step closer to claiming victory. This sets up even more conflict between Jacob and Jewel as their decisions are now affected by their growing need for each other. This leads to a climax that is anything but expected and the reader is carried away, first by a sense of triumph and then by a powerful, palpable sense of loss. This is the first book in the series that brought me to tears. And it was totally worth it.

The pacing is perfect and the sex scenes are, as usual, erotically breath-taking and panty-melting, providing a break from the suspense and providing intimate insight into the needs and vulnerabilities of each primary character. The supporting cast of Walker brothers, wives, and colleagues from the previous books in the series provides a welcoming sense of relief–and hope–just when you need it most. You can’t help but feel a connection to the Walker clan, even if you start with this novel as a standalone. Although I think it might be more enjoyable if read in the series in order, you won’t miss anything significant if you start with this latest release. I guarantee you’ll be hooked to the point that you’ll want to one-click Deep Under and Pulled Under by the time you close the last page of this one.

If you’re in the mood to get lost in a romantic suspense novel, Falling Under, with its two feisty, kick-ass primary characters is like watching WWE with great sex. You might know how you think it will end, but it will keep you guessing–and spellbound–from beginning to end.

Synopsis

Amalie Whitfield is the picture of a blushing bride during her wedding reception–but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of proclaiming his undying love, her husband can be heard, by Amalie and their guests, getting off with someone else. She has every reason to freak out, and in a moment of insanity, she throws herself at the first hot-blooded male she sees. But he’s not interested in becoming her revenge screw.

Mortified and desperate to escape the post-wedding drama, Amalie decides to go on her honeymoon alone, only to find the man who rejected her also heading to the same tiny island for work. But this time he isn’t holding back. She should know better than to sleep with someone she knows, but she can’t seem to resist him.

They might agree that what happens on the island should stay on the island, but neither one can deny that their attraction is more than just physical.

Filled with hilariously scandalous situations and enough sexual chemistry to power an airplane from New York City to the South Pacific, Hooking Up is the next standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Helena Hunting, the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series and Shacking Up.

My Review of Hooking Up

Hooking Up by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Front cover, Hooking Up, by Helena HuntingHooking Up is the very definition of a guilty pleasure. It’s the best kind of dirty fun you can have with your clothes on. The erotic scenes between Amalie and her mystery man will electrify your e-reader; I swear my iPad Kindle app started sizzling from the moment Amalie and Mr. X connected in the proverbial biblical sense.

This standalone sequel to Shacking Up continues the story of Amalie and Armstrong – a match truly made in hell – with an outrageous beginning that turns Amalie’s comfortable world upside down. If you hated Armstrong in Shacking Up, you will wish for his untimely demise by the time Hooking Up is over.

The scenes that follow the “unfortunate event” at their wedding are over-the-top, completely crazy, and utterly hilarious. But the rest of Hooking Up offers more than you might expect. The back story of each character, the soulmate-worthy connection that builds between Amalie and her “Hottie Hookup” is deeply erotic, but also deeply emotional. Helena strikes just the right balance between comedy and drama as the story continues, and for that reason, I think it surpasses Shacking Up as a new favorite – a book I’ll definitely re-read.

There is a lot of sex and a lot of dirty-talk between the beginning and the end – so if that makes you uncomfortable, this may not be the book for you. But for me, it made perfect sense and didn’t detract from the story. The erotic scenes are truly some of the best I’ve ever read, not only from Helena Hunting, but from other contemporary romance authors as well. They bring the heat – but they also bring deep passion, longing, belonging, and empowerment that leads to a satisfying sense of intimacy – the very thing that both primary characters are missing in their lives. I got so attached, so quickly, I read Hooking Up in one sitting.

If you want a perfect read for a chilly fall weekend, with a balance of outrageous humor and angst, with two unforgettable characters, grab your favorite beverage and indulge in this dirty, sexy treat today.

About DELUDE

She wasn’t part of my original plan for revenge, but one glance at her and
I was entranced. I followed her for weeks, observing her habits. I’ve been
in her apartment numerous times, learning anything and everything I can
about her. She’s become an obsession and I’ll do whatever it takes to make
her mine.

It’s only a matter of time before I have her where I want her…

on her knees and at my mercy.

Soon, there will be no secrets between us.

JacobChanceDelude.jpg

Excerpt

Sobs fill the silence of the room. “Dad, leave mom alone,” I shout, pushing
on his chest and shoving him back a couple of feet. Like a tenacious pit
bull after a chew toy – this fucker just keeps coming.

Each time he comes back harder, finally snaking by me. Gripping her upper
arm in his meaty fist, he digs his fingers deep into her skin, and uses his
other arm to block me.

Cries from the pain and the fear he instills mix with the stench of alcohol
emanating from his body. His other hand goes to her neck, gripping under
her chin. The shriek piercing my ears is cut off when he squeezes.

Her face changes color.

Red. Then purple. Finally, heading into the blue family. Blue’s always been
my favorite color, but I can’t say I’ve ever seen this exact shade before.
It’s the color of sadness and the ocean of tears my mom has cried over this
asshole.

Everything happens fast. Her eyes open wide and bulge as the pressure of
his fingers increases.

She can’t breathe and I’m paralyzed standing behind him, watching it
happen.

Transfixed with fascination, I stare. Her eyes lock on me, her love shining
through the agony she’s experiencing. The terror and pleading in her eyes
fades to acceptance.

She knows this time she’s going to die.

Tears flow uncontrolled down her cheeks and a sense of relief washes over
me.

This is the last time he’ll ever make her cry.

My Review of DELUDE

***** 5 of 5 stars *****

Having read all of Jacob’s previous releases (Quake, Quiver, Delve, and Tied), I was immediately intrigued by the premise of Delude; a story centered around Zack Weston, a villain from the previous novellas. Zack presents as a stalker on a vengeance crusade against Kyle McKenzie, a former police officer who owns a private security firm. I wasn’t sure if Delude would once again portray Zack at his criminal worst, or if the time had come for Zack’s redemption; but either way, I knew it would be an engaging read from beginning to end. I was not disappointed.

Finally, all of Zack’s secrets are revealed, including his tragic childhood and the incident that drove him to seek revenge against Kyle and others around him. At first, we see the cold, calculating, manipulative side of Zack, and fear for the safety and sanity of his current obsession – Lana, a slightly broken heroine with a traumatic history, who’s relocated to Boston to escape her past and ended up working with Kyle at KD Investigations. As the story continues, and he becomes more involved with Lana, he begins to question the criminal actions of his past; to gain insight, and to feel remorse. But is it enough to make the reader want him to find redemption? For diehard romance fans, it most certainly is.

Although it’s difficult to trust Zack’s intentions early in the story, and a shadow mistrust lingers even at the mid-point, Jacob brings a previously unseen humanity and vulnerability to the character that will win readers over by the end. Zack proves himself not only capable of confronting his demons, but of making amends and seeking the help he needs to heal. Lana gives him a sense of purpose, a desire to be worthy, and a reason to change. In trying to help her overcome a tragic loss, his healing begins. Their journey together is not only passionately erotic; it’s deeply emotional and very fulfilling. It will also keep you guessing until the very end.

I enjoyed Delude and recommend it for those who love redemptive romances. It works well as a standalone, but I found it especially satisfying after reading the first four novellas in the series. They are quick, easy reads with twists and turns that will hook you and hold your interest – so do yourself a favor and read them in order if you can.

Blackwood, a new erotic thriller by Celia Aaron – Release Day Review

Amazon US       Amazon UK      Amazon CA     Amazon AU
AP new - synopsis.jpg
I dig. It’s what I do. I’ll literally use a shovel to answer a question. Some answers, though, have been buried too deep for too long. But I’ll find those, too. And I know where to dig—the Blackwood Estate on the edge of the Mississippi Delta. Garrett Blackwood is the only thing standing between me and the truth. A broken man—one with desires that dance in the darkest part of my soul—he’s either my savior or my enemy. I’ll dig until I find all his secrets. Then I’ll run so he never finds mine. The only problem? He likes it when I run.

Author’s Note: This is a mystery/suspense romance with violence and explicit sex. Trigger warning.
“You can’t keep me here,” I said with far more bravado than I felt. “I refuse to be held prisoner by a psycho in need of a shower and shave.”

He laughed, this time the sound rich and sultry. It reverberated inside my chest. Something about it reminded me of the forest, the way the sunrise warmed it but couldn’t quite reach its dark heart.

“You don’t like my beard?” He sat next to me, much closer this time.

My pulse ratcheted up, and I took in a quick breath.

“Well?” He grinned and took my wrist.

I tried to pull it away, but his grip was like an iron shackle. He eased the back of my hand down his cheek. “Not so bad, is it?”

It wasn’t. Not exactly soft, it felt thick and masculine. Rich. “What are you doing?” I leaned back until I pressed up against the headboard.

He moved closer, his woodsy scent a mix of smoke and soap. Maybe he didn’t need a shower after all. I didn’t turn away, not even when his lips were only inches from mine.

“I just wanted to see.” His eyes flickered to my lips.

“You’re about to see what a vicious head butt looks like.” My rapid pulse infected my voice, making it quaver.

“Yeah?” He squeezed my wrist harder. “I don’t believe you.”

“Fuck you.” I stared into his eyes, searching the stormy irises for some way to solve the enigma of Garrett Blackwood.

 

He smirked again, just the slightest quirk of his lips, then leaned back and released my wrist. The air cooled between us, and goose bumps rose along my bare arms.

 My Review of Blackwood

 

BlackwoodBlackwood by Celia Aaron
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a fantastically sexy and suspenseful thrill ride! You’ll fall in love with the enigmatic, darkly dangerous, dirty-talking alpha hero, Garrett Blackwood; and his smart, spunky, tenacious antagonist, Elise. Blackwood delivers a breathtaking, erotic storyline full of sexual tension and psychic suspense, with unforgettable imagery and vivid, heart-stopping action that will devour you. It will warm you up with all the feels, then chill you to the bone as suspicion swirls around Garrett and his role in the mysterious disappearances near his family’s estate. I was hooked from beginning to end, fearing the worst, hoping for the best — and Celia didn’t disappoint.

I discovered this author early in 2016 with her darkly addictive Acquisition series. I’ve devoured every book she’s released since, and already look forward to whatever she’s working on now. Whether you love touchy-feely-funny romance or the darkest of the dark, Celia Aaron writes skillfully, fearlessly, and passionately, with stories and characters you won’t soon forget. One-click Blackwood today and see what I mean. You can thank me later.

Meet Brady Luck…

hard luck coverSlugger. Hot shot. MVP.

I’ve been called it all.

I was the real deal, baby.

The diamond was my battlefield.

Women were the victory celebration.

My “Lucky” streak was a given.

On and off the field.

 

 

 

Then I slept with the wrong woman,

And she cursed me.

Literally.

Turned my game upside-down,

In the ballpark…and bedroom.

Now my team is paying the price.

 

My last hope is Cali Jones,

A smart and sexy physician assistant.

Her Midas touch may fix my swing,

Repair my equipment.

But will it be enough to cure my hard luck?

Photo quote from Hard Luck, by Liv Morris

EXCERPTS

“Come on, Cali, baby.” Oh great, here comes the sweet talk. “Just a quickie. No one will notice.”

He places a finger under my chin and I look up at him. Blue eyes twinkling, blond hair a sexy mess, a deadly smirk on a killer jawline—yeah, I’m shit at saying no to that.

“Okay,” I agree, but hold up three fingers. “You have three minutes.”

“Two,” he starts to undo his belt and the bulge at his crotch tells me two minutes might be enough. “Take off your panties, but leave everything else on.”

“I can’t believe we are doing this. Fucking in the Lincoln Bedroom is probably against the law or something.” I pull down my panties and Brady stuffs them in his pocket.

“I’ll give them back later. Now, get on the bed,” he says while whipping out his nine inches, and I grin knowing they are all mine.

*******

Baby photo & teaser from Hard Luck, by Liv Morris

“What do you want?” I breathe.

“I want you in my bed,” Brady murmurs back, as his fingers trail along my cheek, then he pulls the covers off me with a snap of his wrist.

“Brady, what are you doing?” I bring one hand up to my chest.

“Taking you to my bed,” he growls while lifting me up and throwing me over his shoulder Viking-style. “I hope you’re ready to be fucked senseless,” he says as we walk out of my bedroom and down the hallway toward his suite.

“Yes,” I say while exhaling. He’s taken my breath away and I can hardly speak.

“Good,” he responds on a growl, “because I plan on keeping you up all night.”

I close my eyes at the thought of opening myself up to him—all those glorious nine inches. I can’t wait.

********

Teaser with quote from Hard Luck by Liv MorrisI toss my bag onto the back floorboard and climb in after it. The second I’m in the car, an arm grabs me and pulls me to the backseat.

“What the fuck?” I gasp, and look up to see Brady holding on to me.

“Hey, baby,” he says, pulling me into his lap, which I end up straddling. And as usual, he’s as hard as a rock.

“You planned this, didn’t you?” I kiss the smile off his face knowing this was his idea to get me alone before the game.

“I wanted a quickie on the way to the studio. The limo is closed off and Stuart is none the wiser.”

“Problem is, Stuart is too wise. He’ll know you’re fucking me.” I continue to kiss his jawline and begin to take off his belt buckle. “We better hurry.”

“Fuck yeah,” he whistles as he pulls my dress down to reveal a shear lace strapless bra. He pulls my breasts out of each cup and sucks a nipple into his eager mouth.

“Turn up the radio. You know how I love to scream.” I think Brady’s nine inches has flipped my nympho switch. I’ve never come on dick alone until him.

I ease off Brady’s lap and take his cock into my mouth. We only have a few minutes before we arrive at the studio and I can’t disappoint my favorite appendage.

When these two opposites attract, mistakes will be made. Lots of mistakes. Big, long, hard mistakes. Over and over, and over again…
When Emily Cole’s suitcase explodes on a crowded airport baggage claim in her new hometown, sexy cop Luke Nolan is the first to pick up her most intimate items, including her 7.5-inch, 20-speed, hot pink battery-operated-boyfriend!
In town to run the Winslow Inn on the picturesque island in Lake Michigan, Emily is determined to put her bed-and-breakfast in the small town’s spotlight—while also keeping herself well out of it. But her sexy nemesis is bent on getting her into trouble, and when her impulsive retaliation to his teasing lands her in the local jail, Emily is ready to shove her tormentor into the lake… or the nearest bed.
Luke has one job—to keep the quiet, sleepy island town quiet and sleepy. No drama. No surprises. No tragedies. Never again. But the strawberry-blonde with the porn star mouth and interesting luggage turns his life upside down from the moment she sets foot on the island, and what began as a distraction from his memories of That Day, quickly turns into something more. Trouble is, Luke doesn’t want more with Emily—she’s not his type. She’s the opposite of his type. Until his brother Noah’s wedding, when bridesmaid Emily shows up with a sexy new look and their sweet tease escalates to a scorching hot hook-up that makes him forget why he was resisting the shy stutterer in the first place.
Getting involved with her would be a huge mistake, though it just might turn out to be the sweetest mistake of his life.

Sweetest Mistake (Nolan Brothers, #2)Sweetest Mistake by Amy Olle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“When these two opposites attract, mistakes will be made. Lots of mistakes. Big, long, hard mistakes. Over and over, and over again…”

The first line of the synopsis snagged me – and the rest of the book made me fall in love. If you’ve ever had one of those relationships where your brain told you to brace yourself, but your heart told you to give it all you’ve got, you will be able to relate to this ‘reluctant love’ story. But if, like me, you are a true romantic at heart, you hang on for dear life and hope for a happy ending. As expected, there are some painful, tearful moments along the way. But they add a poignant touch to balance the self-deprecating humor that Amy Olle has woven throughout the story, and when you think all hope is lost, the true strength of the characters emerges in an ending that might make you weep with joy.

Emily is painfully shy, awkward, a bit of a klutz, and so full of social anxiety that your heart twists for her- repeatedly. Reeling from the loss of her beloved mother and the insanely cruel childhood rejection of her father, she’s an expert at feeling bad about herself, without any help from the rest of an often-cruel world. She has a stutter that only gets worse as her stress increases. She’s not a tall, willowy size 2, or even a size 8 for that matter. Like many other women, she compares herself to others, and comes up painfully short. She bemoans her lack of a ‘thigh gap’ – something many of us can easily appreciate. One failed relationship in college counts among her lengthy list of perceived failures, and reinforces her father’s belief that no decent man would ever want her. Months after her mother has passed, Emily decides to move to the isolated island in the Great Lakes where she has fond memories – and her cousin, Mina – determined to put the past behind her.

So as you might expect, the first person she sees at the airport brings a painful memory along with him. Luke Nolan, is gorgeous, successful, confident and self-assured — all the things she isn’t, and all of the things she believes she can never be. When he finds her scrambling amidst a mountain of personal belongings scattered across the baggage carousel, he helps her collect herself – and she allows herself a brief glimmer of hope. When he climbs into a car driven by a feminine bombshell, her hopes are not only dashed, she starts to question her decision to move there, resolving to avoid him at all costs.

Avoiding him is not an option. But worse, what she doesn’t know is that he’s a burdened, broken man, angry at himself, full of his own sense of guilt and unworthiness. He thrives on shallow, short-term, superficial relationships. And whiskey. And he is determined not to let anyone – especially someone he finds to be as pure and genuine as Emily – get close enough to see who he really is.

Neither can deny their attraction, but both are determined to put limits on their relationship. Until they can’t. Until they are each forced to face the one thing they can’t run away from. Their sweetest mistake. I leave it to you to find out what it is … and to fall in love with this story – and this series – for yourself.

An Excerpt from Marry Screw Kill …

“Harlow, Harlow,” he murmurs in reverence, as if my previous profession of love has brought him to his knees.

He takes my hand and brings it to his lips. His gentle kisses make me drift to a memory from a couple hours ago when Sin’s lips brushed over my knuckles. I felt everything then. My senses hummed. Now, I feel nothing.

I try to ease my hand from his, but his grip holds me in place. “Do you have any idea how long I’ve wanted to hear you say these words?” He places another kiss on my hand. “I forgive you for tonight.”

I do need his forgiveness, because his lips aren’t the ones I want on me. The ones I want belong to the man driving the car behind us. The fact that he’s James’ nephew makes me feel even more ashamed. What is wrong with me?

“You say you love me, but I need you to show me your love. Erase what I saw.” He releases my hand and I can guess what he wants: sex. It’s how he communicates.

“Unzip your dress and remove your bra,” he instructs, his voice rough.

I don’t want to upset him more, so I work myself out of my dress and bra. The air conditioning blows across my bare breasts and my nipples harden. I’m tempted to cover them with my hands, but he wouldn’t approve, so they stay at my sides.

Eyeing my exposed body, he licks his lips, pleased with what he sees. He reaches over to touch the side of my breast, cupping it with his hand. His thumb finds my nipple and strokes over it, pinching it hard. I inhale a sharp breath at the assaulting sensation.

“You’re utter perfection. Feel how hard you make me.” His fingers leave my breast and grip my hand. Placing my hand over his bulging erection and curling my fingers around him, I close my eyes.

“Now, unzip my pants and put me in your hot mouth.”

Review …

          

Liv Morris is a USA Today bestselling author for a good reason: her stories are simply stunning – and Marry Screw Kill (MSK) is no exception. In fact, it’s exceptional to the point that it’s hard to describe.  It’s edgy. It’s dark. It’s angsty. It’s a suspenseful psychological thriller that evolves into a powerful love story. It’s a coming of age story of a vulnerable young woman who discovers true love in the most unlikely of places. The love and passion she discovers empowers her, strengthens her, and allows her to break free of a deeply toxic relationship with a powerful and intimidating “lover.”  The characters are complex and very well-written. The story captures you from the first paragraph and keeps you hanging on every word until the end, hoping for a happy-ever-after all the way — fearing that it won’t happen as it should. I will tell you there is NO cliffhanger, and there is a surprise near the end that you can’t anticipate. It’s totally worth every suspenseful moment.

We all know that life can change, irreversibly, in an instant. Such is the case with the story’s young heroine, Harlow Masters. Arriving late one evening at the modest home she shares with her mother, she finds herself caught up in a horrific event – so traumatizing that after witnessing it, she loses consciousness. When she wakes up, her life changes again, in ways she could never have expected. She meets a man – Dr. James Elliott – who is determined to make her his own; to share her burden and heal her suffering. Or so she thinks.

She couldn’t be more wrong. But the longer she stays with him, the more she realizes there is truly evil behind his mask of affection. He has dark intentions. Taking advantage of her youth, innocence, and vulnerability, he slowly gains ultimate control over her. She is trapped in a life she never expected, never wanted, and has no idea if she has the power or the will to escape. She is engaged to a monster. Cut off from her best and only close friend, without a family, she senses the danger she’s in, but she rationalizes it, she doubts her own ability to make decisions … and ultimately, she resigns herself to her new fate.

Enter Sinclair Elliot, nephew of her fiancé, a young medical student who comes to visit when his uncle arranges a prestigious clerkship at The Clinic, a premier medical center in Rochester, NY.  Sinclair is immediately taken with Harlow, and it doesn’t take him long to see through his uncle’s dark, twisted soul. He realizes the danger that Harlow is in if she stays to become his wife – and takes it upon himself to help her see it for herself.

Harlow feels an immediate attraction – and deep connection – to the gentle, gorgeous Sinclair. She allows him to see her vulnerability – she can’t help but feel the contrast between his protectiveness and her fiancé’s greedy, jealous, narcissistic possessiveness. She knows she can’t have Sinclair, regardless of what her heart tells her. But he gives her hope. He ignites her strength, releases her inner resilience. With Sinclair and her best friend, Emma, Harlow finally sees a way out. But it’s treacherous, at best.

Sinclair seems too good to be true. Does the apple fall far enough from the tree that he could be truly different than his uncle? Could his care, concern, and affection be true – or is it another ruse? Can she trust him with her life, or will he lead her down another dark path, perhaps worse than before?  If and when she does escape from James, can she remain on her own, back in a broken-down apartment, barely making ends meet, always looking over her shoulder in fear that she’ll be found?

You’ll have to read this compelling story for yourself, and I recommend that you order it today. It will shock and surprise you, but it will also inspire you. In real life, “Marry Screw Kill” is a game. In MSK, it’s a dangerous one, well worth the emotional journey.
