From the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Olivia Cunning

One Starry Night...

In high school, Jake was the bad boy who made Michelle burn with desire, took what he wanted from her body, and broke her heart. In hindsight, Michelle never should have gotten tangled up with the aspiring guitarist in the first place. In high school, Devlin was a sweet, shy geek who’d had a crush on her, but when he’d found the courage to ask her to Prom, she’d turned him down flat. In hindsight, she should have worried more about the quality of the boy than her reputation with the popular crowd. But this isn’t high school anymore. At her ten year class reunion, Michelle finds her once popular crowd lacking, but finds both the man who broke her heart and the one she once rejected irresistibly sexy. She wants them. Both of them. And they want her any way—every way—they can have her. Can she resist either man? Does she even want to try?

New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is heating things up with Boots Optional, a sexy new ménage novella which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch. Grace Lambert is familiar with hard work, long days, and handsome cowboys. She’s been working for her family’s dude ranch since she was old enough to ride a horse and she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. What she is afraid of is the heat that’s been generating between her and not one, but two sexy cowboys who’ve set their sights on her. And each other. Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller have both had their eyes on Gracie for years, but the feisty cowgirl has managed to keep them at bay. As far as they are concerned, cowboys don’t give up, and neither of them is ready to give up just yet. Not on her and not on the heat that transpires between the two of them. Find out what happens when the sultry Texas nights get as hot as the fierce Texas days.

New York Times bestselling author Cherrie Lynn gets it hot in here with SHAMELESS. It's a vacation Meredith Taylor will never forget. A sunny beach, good friends and good times. But when she overhears a couple having a passionate interlude on the balcony above her one night, she can't get the man's sultry voice out of her mind. Especially when she figures out exactly who that man is...

Cameron Moore always had an eye on his best friend's little sister but considered her strictly off limits, choosing to satisfy his lust elsewhere. Now Meri seems to want to annihilate every wall Cam's put up against her. The beach is hot, the drinks are cold, Meredith is irresistible, and something has to give. Will it only be the walls between them, or their hearts as well?

New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby brings you PLAYING WITH FIRE, a ménage novella. Bailey Whitworth is a charity event organizer and a woman exploring her sexuality. Kevin Welling and Gray McDermitt are firefighters and best friends who share everything. Bailey always knew her sexual appetites were "different", but she had no idea that she could fall in love with two men at once. What will she do when she has to choose between them? Or will she have to choose at all?

From USA Today bestselling author, Lainey Reese comes Guarding Nadia.

When Nadia Dixon walked into the offices of CJ Investigations, the last thing she expected to find were men who looked more like GQ models than bodyguards.  It was desperation that brought her to their door however and she prayed that the two sex gods were more than just pretty faces.

Caleb and Jonas had started their security firm together after leaving the Secret Service.  They had the lethal skill and training to safeguard anyone, including the gorgeous erotic author.  Considering her stunning beauty, alluring sensuality and decadent profession, the only wonder was that she had drawn out just one obsessed fan.  After hearing Nadia's story and seeing for themselves the threat that she was under, they knew they could keep her safe from any stalker.

Their only worry...who was going to keep her safe from them?

A Note from Laura:
Hey guys! I am so excited about Easy’s book that I can hardly wait for August to get here! Easy’s character was a total surprise to me. When I initially plotted out the series, there were four surviving members of the Army Special Forces team and therefore I planned for and sold four book in the series. But then, when I sat down to write Hard As It Gets, all of a sudden the story demanded there were actually five guys, and Edward “Easy” Cantrell was born. And I’m so glad! Because Easy’s character is a totally tortured hero, which I adore writing! So I’m super happy that we added his story and this novella into the series, and I can’t wait for you to learn about Easy in Hard to Hold On To!

Is it August yet???

xo, Laura

Forbidden (The Soulkeepers #1) by Lori Adams

Lori Adams gives New Adult a haunting paranormal twist with the first novel of The Soulkeepers, a series that blends ancient legends and new myths with an enchanting mix of thrills, humor, and high drama.

When Sophia St. James learns that she’ll be moving from Los Angeles to a podunk town somewhere in Connecticut for her senior year of high school, she isn’t expecting an otherworldly encounter. But there is more to Haven Hurst than meets the eye: it’s home to a family of Guardian Angels, and she is the only one who can see them in spirit form. Sophia soon realizes she wants to see much more of Michael, an irresistible yet volatile Guardian who seems drawn to her too.

As Michael battles his forbidden desire for the beautiful young newcomer, one of Hell’s most notorious Demon Knights arrives. Handsome and charismatic, Dante has come to claim the reincarnated soul of his lost lover trapped in Sophia. Cursed with the demon of Persuasion living inside him, Dante will use his seductive charms to lure Sophia into a dangerous game that ends with the kiss of death—unless Michael, who has captured Sophia’s heart, can now capture her soul.

***Received an ARC of this book from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review***

Overall Rating:   3.5 Rockin’ ★★★☆

"Michael Patronus, Guardian Angel."  "He has a serene beauty that is disarming."

"I can take being a loner.  I can take the label.  But I can't take the look of pity in his eyes."

"He knows I know something, and I'm struck with an unsettling feeling, a calm certainty that this first day will encompass all those missing elements and more.  Everything is about to change."

"I don't know what's happening, Sophia.  I just know it is happening.  You are a part of me and...I won't deny it any longer."  "For the first time in my life, I know where I belong."

Forbidden is an interesting spin on the spirit world of angels and demons.  Michael Patronus is a Guardian Angel, who's prime directive is to protect and sometimes save lives in the small town of Haven Hurst.  He and his family of angels reside and protect the town from the evils of the real and spirit world.  Michael is an enigma, the best in everything he achieves and is striving to become one of the Halos Sons, the elite army of Heaven.  His world is simple, save the lives of those he can, help deliver the souls of the ones he can't and always succeed.  Never loosing a soul to the demonic soul seekers that plague the earth.  All this changes one night while he's in spirit form at an accident and a girl sees him, actually sees him, when no one else can!  Instantly his world becomes complicated. 

Sophia St. James is lost.  A senior in high school, she moves clear across the country from California to the West Coast, following her pastor father, seeking the reason for her existence.  Her mother died two years ago in a psyche ward from unexplainable events.  Sophia is trying to figure out why her mother left her so soon.  She is attempting to find her way and/or her place in the world because she just doesn't seem to fit, like she's out of place. 

This was a really good story from the beginning to the end.  There were a few moments which left me feeling a little leery from the demonic overtures.  However, I was intrigued by the fresh look the story took on the heavenly realm.  Realizing that even angels are not perfect, with the greatest meaning and gift of it all being love.  I feel this story is a good read, but it left me feeling and wanting more.  I wanted more from the characters, Michael and Sophia as far as their relationship.  I would've liked for their relationship to have flourished a bit more.  Not exactly in a sexual manner.  But just in their need for each other and maybe a bit more intense earlier on.  I also wanted the story to give me more in the facts of Sophia's mother and her mysteriousness.  The end left me with so many more questions.  Unfortunately, I'll have to wait until the next book to learn more about this new heavenly couple and the mysteries that surround them...Grēta

***Received an ARC of this book from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review***

Overall Rating:   4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Charla needed a location change after catching her fiancé cheating with a blond stripper! She had just completed a nurse’s aide program and was ready to accept an in-home caregiver position in the wilds of Illinois by Mud Lake.  Charla would be caring for an elderly gentleman suffering from Alzheimer and continuing to work on her nursing degree.

“Someday you’re going to watch me die, Miss Charla.  Probably sometime sooner than later,” he said, leaning over the rails.

For three years Charla cared for Jack and was with him when he took his last breath.  During that time they developed a true friendship.  Jack only asks that at his death she deliver a sealed letter to one Liam Murphy, then pack up everything, get rid of things and sell the cabin.  Charla is surprised to learn that Jack left the cabin to her.

“The first thing I’m going to do is give you an envelope.  I trust you, Charla, which means more than you’ll ever know. You see, I don’t trust anyone, not even myself.”

Charla delivers the letter to Liam at the Dirty Leprechaun which just so happens to be his bar.  Liam is not only a bar owner but also a bounty hunter during the day. He is everything that she needs to stay away from.   Charla does not know what is inside the envelope and doesn’t want to know if it has anything to do with Jack’s last ramblings especially the part about the Irish Mafia.

“What is it?” Liam picked up the envelope and studied the front inscription.  

“I don’t know.” Charla dug in her purse to retrieve a ten dollar bill and threw it on the counter.  “Whatever it is, good luck.” 

“Good luck?”

Liam was in the Marines for six years and had been married to his childhood sweetheart for eight. When he came home from his last tour of duty his wife had filed for divorce.  He was a one woman man and has been unable to move on past her betrayal.  But Liam finds himself unable to forget the beautiful Charla.  He tells her that Jack was his father and he has two brothers.  Liam asks Charla to help him find his brothers and to uncover the reason why his father gave them away.  He knows this will keep Charla close to him and the more time they spend together the more together they will be.

“So you’re interested?” she asked
“More than interested,” he replied, putting his hand on her lower back again.  “Call me intrigued.”

Charla and Liam work together to locate his brothers and at the same time grow together and find peace in each other’s arms.

Undeniable by Ashley Simone

What if One Night Could Change Your Life?

Working in a diner by day and desperately applying for accounting jobs by night, Allie Nobokov fears that her future will be one of a single, virginal, cat lady. A chance encounter with a gorgeous stranger, Zac, awakens her desires and she feels an undeniable connection.

When fate pushes them together once again, Allie’s desires run wild – until, just when things start getting hot and heavy, Zac disappears into the night...

How can you deny a connection so strong?

All that is pushed to the back of Allie’s mind when her younger brother shows up on her doorstep, desperately in need of more money than she can provide… Until she sees a classified ad.

“I met a girl and I can’t get over her,” says the ad, and goes on to describe Allie. “If you look like her, I’ll pay handsomely for one night with you.”

Can Allie summon the courage to answer the mysterious ad and go through with what it entails? And can she convince the enigmatic Zac to push aside his demons and give their love a chance?

A Sexy, New Adult Story

***Received an ARC of this book from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review***

Overall Rating:   4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Allie’s life was forever changed the day Zac walked into the diner that she was working at.  His beautiful eyes held her frozen to the spot the moment she looked into them.  Zac is exactly the kind of man that she wants to lose her virgin card too!  Only he doesn’t approach her or ask for her phone number.  That’s just Allie’s luck; find that someone that she is finally interested in and it goes nowhere! Typical of her life, she lost her mother to cancer, her job to the economy and now a beautiful man. What else can happen to her?
Joel looked at me with scared eyes.  “Remember how you said you’d always be there for me?” 
“Of course.” 
“Well I need you help now.”  His lips twisted upwards in a grim, humorless smile, and I nodded rapidly. 
“I need twenty thousand dollars.”
Allie cannot believe her baby brother is asking her for twenty thousand dollars!  She had lost her job and was working as a waitress to keep a roof over her head.  There was no way she could come up with that kind of money.  Even though she had promised her mother that she would take care of Joel, there was no way she could bail him out of this.
Joel said, “It’s serious.  If I don’t have the money…” 
His voice trailed off and I said, “What? If you don’t have the money…?” 
“He says he’ll break my leg.”
Allie runs into Zac at a bar where she was meeting her roommate.  Zac rescues her from an offensive blind date.  But once again he does not pick up on the intense reaction that they have to each other. 
“Would you like to come upstairs?”  He shook his head.  “I shouldn’t.” 
“Oh.” I hid my surprise.  There was nothing to be surprised about, really.  The ones you liked, never like you back. 
While searching online for “high-paying freelance work” to make some money to help Joel, Allie stumbles across a classified site for escort services.  With a recent ad describing someone that could be her.  Allie replies and decides that it is Zac requesting services. The man on the site is willing to pay 25K for one night so Allie agrees to meet him.  This will save her brother!
And then it hit me with a whoosh!  I was going to lose my virginity. 
Allie does not know what to expect but she goes to the meet the unknown man.  From that moment forward nothing is as she expected it to be.

Would I recommend this book: Yes! This book is about a Mystery Man that meets a naive young woman that doesn’t have a clue about the real world and how things work.  The ending leaves you wanting the next book immediately to find out what happens next.

Would I read other books by this author: Yes! I want to read what happens to Allie and Zac. 

Cole's Redemption (Alpha Pack #5) by J.D. Tyler

Once, they were Navy SEALS. Now they are the Alpha Pack: a top secret team of wolf shifters with Psy powers who take on the darkest dangers on Earth. But sometimes the greatest danger lies within their own hearts....

Healer and black wolf shifter Zander Cole has survived horrors that would have broken a weaker man. But when a battle leaves him deaf and his powers dimmed, Zan is devastated. Believing himself to be a burden to his team, he sees only one option: leave the Pack forever.

White wolf shifter Selene Westfall knows pain—she is certain her father was responsible for her mother’s death. And she lives to exact revenge. So when she is challenged by a savage black wolf, she puts up a vicious fight—only to become the black wolf’s Bondmate as a result of his bite.

Two damaged souls—one filled with hatred and one who’s lost his reason for living—are forced together as they come to terms with their unlikely, turbulent bond. A love neither expected may be all that stands between them and a killer trying desperately to keep the past dead and buried....

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Selene had loved her father as a young girl until he disappeared after her mother’s death.  She had been told that he was responsible for the death of her mother and since then she has lived to take revenge on her father.  The only trouble is that her bondmate works with her father as a member of the Alpha Pack and is sworn to protect his brothers. 

Rushing in, he hit the wolf from the side and sent them both skidding across the ground.  Immediately, he leaped on the intruder’s back before he could gain his footing, driving him into the dirt and leaves.  The other wolf was no match for Zan’s weight and couldn’t throw him no matter how he struggled.  Blood lust roared through his veins, and he lunged, sinking his fangs through thick fur into the wolf’s neck.

When Zander realizes that the wolf is a female he also feels the bond between them lock into place.  They haven’t even exchanged names; all he had been thinking was to protect his boss.  Big shock, however when they do exchange names, she is his bosses daughter. 

“Selene Westfall.”  She raised one eyebrow.  Congrats are in order, eh?  I mean, since your boss just became you father-in-law and all.”

Zander had been suffering with hearing loss since their last mission and he was growing more and more concerned with his place as a member of the pack.  After biting Selene his hearing starts to return.  He has been warned not to use his healing ability again until his brain has a chance to heal.  Zander is a healer and it goes against everything that he is not to heal someone if it is needed.

“It won’t be easy.  As for me, my fighting days are over unless my hearing improves a lot more.”  He looked away, out the window.  “I almost got Nix killed earlier.  That’s why I was out for a run when I came across you and Nick.  I was trying to decide whether to leave here for good.”

Selene must decide if she will stay with Zander.  She must find out the truth about her father and also what happened to her mother. Both will face the ultimate test when they face an evil from the past.

Zan?  What’s wrong?  What’s happening?  It was a trap, he sent to her.  There was a bomb and it went off.  Baby, we need help.  Oh my god! Are you all right?

New alliances will be formed, new abilities will be uncovered and old hurts will be healed.

Would I recommend this book: Yes! This is a phenomenal book about the paranormal world that holds you captive until the very end.

Would I read other books by this author: Yes! I have enjoyed all the books written by this author and look forward to the next book in this series. I wonder if it will be Nick’s story.
