Excerpt
He looks up and I watch his eyes take me in.  Slowly.  They rake over me, dropping from my eyes to my glossed lips down to my exposed shoulders.  Taking his time, he follows the neckline of my simple, yet body contouring sundress, lingering when he reaches my full breasts.  I’m sufficiently covered, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t aware that the dress showed off my assets well.  Tight around my chest, gathering snuggly at the waist, with a scant amount of cleavage.  Just enough coverage to still leave something for him to imagine.  And I watch his face change as his imagination takes off running.
His eyes drift down my legs, tanned now from the eternal California sun.  Momentarily he’s lost in what he sees and doesn’t even notice I’m watching him leer.  Totally worth the extra effort getting ready tonight, I couldn’t be happier at the reaction I get.  Eventually, his eyes make their way back up to mine and I arch one eyebrow, letting him know he’s been caught.  A normal reaction might be to look embarrassed or perhaps even flustered a little.  But not Zack.  Instead, he flashes me a wicked grin.  “You look incredible.”  He’s the one doing the leering, yet I’m the one who ends up blushing.

Overall Rating:  5 Rockin’ ★★★★
What if you found out your entire life was a lie?  You have a father, a twin sister and an aunt that you knew nothing about!  Your mother had kept everything from you and had been in constant motion, moving from place to place never settling in one place too long.  This was my life until my mother was taken from me by death and everything changed.

From the day Emily Bennett moved across the street from me with her family, I knew she was my future.  We were the perfect couple.  I was the captain of the football team, she was the beautiful, popular cheerleader and we were the envy of everyone at school.  But suddenly Emily began to change and not necessarily for the best! She was becoming that girl that thinks she is better than everyone else and unless they were part of her group she didn’t have anything to do with them.  This and the sudden mood swings had me not knowing what was up and what was down.  When Emily finally pushed too much, I left her at a party with her assurances that she had a ride home after the party.  The next morning and every morning after for the next nine months was a living nightmare for me, Emily was killed in a car accident on her way home from the party I had left her at.  Guilt and heartache cannot begin to describe my torment! My parents and friends are worried about me and what I might do because I blamed myself for her death.

I have no one but my best friend Ashley to help me during my time of grieving for my mother.  I am not eighteen yet and will be placed in a Foster Home unless my best friend can convince her mother to let me stay with them until I finish my senior year.  While packing my mother’s things and mine ready to move, I discovered a hidden birth bracelet for a baby.  Not mine but my sisters, a sister I did not know existed.  From that moment on I knew that I had to find my twin, my sister.  My mother had written a letter to be given to me at her death.  My case worker tells me that my mother had given her the letter several weeks before her death.  When I read the letter I could not believe how much my mother had kept hidden from me.  It stated that I had a twin and an aunt.  I now have a place to go if my aunt will take me and a mission to find my sister.  Life will come right I just need time to unravel my past. 

When I arrived in California with my aunt, everything changes.  I meet Zack and I am forever changed.  He is just starting to wake up from the nightmare he has been living in and he says it is because of me that he is once again among the living.  He tells me that he will help me find my sister.  Will Nikki and Zack overcome their feelings of betrayal and heartbreak? Can they find happiness even after the past is revealed?  This is a book that you will not want to miss reading! 

Hero –Zack Martin 5 stars
Heroine –Nikki Fallon 5 stars
Steam: 5 stars 
Plot: 5 stars 
Cliffhanger: No

Would I recommend this book: Yes! This book has so many twists that you can’t help but wonder what will happen next and yet you never see it coming! There is of course love, lust and some sexy hot scenes, but above everything this is a beautiful love story with an eventual HEA.

Would I recommend this author: Yes! These are must read authors that give so much with each book they release.  I could not put this book down and cannot wait to read another by this talented pair!

Two stories so deeply intertwined, you’ll think you know how they intersect…but you’ll be wrong….


Zack Martin
The day I met Emily Bennett my whole world changed. Sure, we were just kids, but I was old enough to know my life would never be the same. She was my best friend. My destiny. My fate. I wasn’t wrong…I just didn’t know how twisted fate could be.


Nikki Fallon
After the death of my mother, moving from my dark and dreary trailer park to sunny California, I was focused on one thing – finding a sister I’d only just learned existed. Falling in love with him wasn’t part of the plan. But he filled a void I never knew was possible to fill. He had to be my fate. My destiny. Until the day I finally found out who my sister was…and how twisted fate could be.

Authors: Amber Lin (Goodreads Author), Shari Slade
goodreads-badge-add-plus-d700d4d3e3c0b346066731ac07b7fe47





Half-Life Bassist Krist Mellas is still in the media doghouse after a sex video blew up online months ago. His agent has the solution: a fake engagement with sultry pop princess Madeline Fox to prove he's got his shit together. Krist couldn't care less about public opinion, but Madeline has an image problem too—and he owes her a favor.


Madeline knows better than anyone what it means to live a lie in the spotlight. She's determined to help Krist without ever letting him find out what it costs her—or about her girlhood crush on him. But after a smoking encounter in the back alley of an exclusive club, she can't deny she wants the surly rocker.


In a world of glitter and diamonds, where pretend kisses feel all too real, their facades start to crack. And the publicity storm may shatter them both.


WARNING: This book contains a scorching threesome with girl on girl action, a dirty talking pop princess, and a gruff rocker who hits all the right notes.

Three Nights with a Rock Star (Half-Life #1)
When Hailey crashes a Half-Life after party, she expects to find the bastard who knocked up her little sister. Instead she meets the sexy front-man who agrees to give her access to his crew if she gives him access to her body.


All Lock demands in return is three days of complete control over the Sunday School teacher. With a contract, because he’s been burned before. One misstep could send the band—and his tenuous sobriety—up in flames.


Hailey and Lock push each other’s limits… Against the penthouse window. Backstage. In the limo and on the elevator. But as the contract counts down, neither are ready for the party to end.





What people are saying about Three Nights with a Rock Star


“This book will ROCK YOUR SOCKS RIGHT OFF!” – Red’s Hot Reads


“Three Nights with a Rock Star has the love story, the push you up against a door sex, and the holy hell I can’t believe they’re doing that ménage sex, but it also has the sweetness of family and the heartbreak of possible betrayals, broken friendships, and leaked sex tapes. I cannot wait to read Krist’s story, One Kiss with a Rock Star!” – Hines and Bingam’s Literary Tryst


“The chemistry between Lock and Hailey is blistering. Sparks flew the first time they saw each other. It was nice to see that both main characters had issues to work through to be able to maintain a relationship between them.” – Cocktails and Books


“Three Nights With A Rock Star was right up my ally, I loved every minute of it! From the sexy lead singer Lock, to the cute mousy Hailey. I’m more than looking forward to the next book One Kiss with a Rock Star.” – Books Unhinged





About the Authors
Amber author


Amber Lin writes erotic romance with damaged souls and deep emotion.


Her debut novel, Giving It Up, received The Romance Review’s Top Pick, Night Owl Top Pick, and 5 Blue Ribbons from Romance Junkies. RT Book Reviews gave it 4.5 stars, calling it “truly extraordinary.” She has been published by Loose Id, Carina Press, and Entangled.


Amber married her high school sweetheart, birthed a kid who’s smarter than she is, and spends her nights writing down her dirty thoughts. In other words, life is good.



ShariShari Slade is a snarky optimist. A would-be academic with big dreams and very little means. When she isn’t toiling away in the non-profit sector, she’s writing gritty stories about identity and people who make terrible choices in the name of love (or lust). Somehow, it all works out in the end. If she had a patronus it would be a platypus.

Synopsis

Trice
Under the lights, amongst the jazz shoes, blistered feet and caked faces of the dance troupe, you pretend you’re someone else. The melody begins and your body responds. You allow it to weave into your skin until it’s made itself home in your soul. It is that dance that drives you. It is that dance that will continue to save you. It is that dance that will release you.
Until him.


Until your heart can no longer shut him out, even after he’s pushed you away.
You can’t let him in again, can you? There’s only so much of your heart left to give.


Alex
She is the reason I can’t stay. The reason that the covered bruises, the lies and the hurt are too much. I am no good for her. But when I see her again, I can’t stay away. Like Dante said, “The path to paradise begins in hell.”

“Stupid. Beautiful. Girl.


How did you ever think you could be free?”





The last words I heard before the darkness took me and my dreams were shattered.





I was on my way to having it all.


Friends, family and a future.


Everything I had wished for but never thought possible.





Denham King showed me just how good life could be. A life where love and happiness were within reach.





Almost.





I should have known it would never last.


My past is a dark, damp cloud, that has seeped into my skin and left a cold promise.


A promise of hurt and pain.


A promise of a long, hard fight, where the stakes are high and the risks threaten lives.





When your world gets thrown in all directions, and your dreams for the future are torn from your grasp; how do you go on?





Can I fight the demons that haunt me?


Can love save me from fate’s cruel path?

Excerpt
“Arianna, dear. It’s nice to see you again.” Amy pushes past my shoulder, inviting herself in and taking ownership of the air around us. “Although, I wasn’t expecting to see so much,” she sneers, letting her eyes drift down the length of my legs. 


I stand tall, trying not to be intimidated by her, trying to stand my ground in my apartment, but instantly feeling threatened by the way her body reacts to me, and the way her gaze makes me feel cold and uncomfortable. 


She lifts her hand toward me, and tucks a long, red, predatory nail under the collar of the white shirt I am wearing, lifting it between her fingertips and gently brushing against my collarbone through the fabric as she does. It sends chills through me. She’s cold. Her aura, her demeanor, and her intentions are all icy and it radiates from her in steady pulses.


“I bet he likes you in this. I bet he asked you to wear it, am I wrong?”


Of course, she’s not wrong. She’s pretty much as correct as can fucking be. I swallow hard. Shards of her persona stick into me like little icy pins. Her words, like little needles of reality, stab into my veins. She knows him better than I do. She knows what he likes, and what he doesn’t. Has he asked her to wear his shirt for him?


Has he told her to dress in nothing but heels and diamonds for him?
The thoughts make me feel sick. But, I know that she’s playing me. I've seen Denham’s reaction to her. I’ve seen the contempt in his eyes when her name is mentioned, and I’ve felt the tension radiate from him when he encounters her. She’s a bitch. Pure and simple.
