~Blog Tour: The Gift by Kassandra Wylde~




Hector Sanchez has just finished his MBA and wants to make his mark in the world of business. After working as an assistant for members of The Mansion for the past few years, he’s ready to part ways and strike out on his own. The problem is, The Mansion isn’t ready to let him go just yet. Stacey Corsair is a former stripper who is stuck in a bad relationship with her boss. She is tough as nails and yet allows herself to be used and abused just in order to survive. She longs to find a man who is truly deserving of her love and devotion. When Hector enters her club one night, she wonders if he is that man. The Mansion makes Hector an offer he can’t refuse—membership in The Mansion—but requires that he first prove himself in business and then provide a gift to them as a sign of loyalty. Stacey might be that perfect gift, but is she willing to be trained as a submissive? And will she agree to serve The Mansion anyway? Plus, is Hector capable of giving up the woman he now loves, just for membership?

Welcome to your wildest fantasy...

The invitation arrives out of nowhere. No name. No address. Just one simple challenge.

'Play with me.' 

The games are intoxicating, each one more thrilling than the last. And pleasure is the ultimate prize.

He knows my secrets. He sees my darkest desires. He can drive me to ecstasy -- and I don't even know his name.

This is your invitation. Now it's your turn to decide.

Are you ready? 

Discover the red-hot new erotic series from the author of THE SEDUCTION.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

This book caught my attention from page one and refused to release me until I finished the last word!  It is a sexy tale of love, lust and heartbreak that makes you wonder if there is any way that there will be a HEA.  

Justine has worked her butt off literally to get where she is now.  She worked two jobs to pay for college and law school.  Spent hours after work studying to keep her grade point up and now she is reaping the benefits of all that hard work.  When she is sent to the Big Apple to represent a client for her LA firm she is totally surprised by who is in the initial meeting.  Her once BFF is the force behind the case against her client.  The man that broke her heart and left her without any explanation.  

Unexplained gifts and invitations mysteriously appear in her room and other places.  No clues to who the mystery man could be is left, only promises of unbelievable pleasure.  If she will submit to his invitation a new world will be opened for her to explore.

Ashton Pierce is not the man that Justine had known during their college days.  He is now a successful business man with an attitude.  lBut underneath it all he is still her Ash, the one man that she has never been able to forget?  Is Ash her mystery man?  If not then who is he?  

Hero:  Ashton Pierce 4.5 stars

 Excerpt 1

 My entire body pulses in the wake of his touch. His words “if you were mine” keep circling around in my head, and with each rotation, something inside me grows. He makes me feel happy and less broken. I feel I could take on the world as long as he’s beside me. Whatever he is, I don’t care. I’ve never felt anything like this, and I’ll go to Hell and back to keep it. Regardless of what happens to me, I have to protect him. I have to keep him safe, always.
He grins and squeezes my hand again. My body responds with such intensity, I almost feel as if I were floating. I don’t want it to ever stop. I want to stay strong. I want to be brave. I want to feel safe. He gives me all of that. I want to hold him forever, even if it’s only his hand.
“Tomorrow,” he says, pulling me from my thoughts. “I’ll find a way to see you.”

 Excerpt 2

 All I want now is to be near her—but that could be the very thing that kills her.
“If you care for her, you’ll leave this house and never see her again. If she dies and she’s unknown to Heaven, that’s it. This otherworldly girl will either be sentenced to Hell or
cease to exist. Can you face eternity knowing you brought that fate to her?”
All the air rushes out of my body as the weight of her life once again rests on my soul. I turn back to her, memorizing as much as I can about her—the way her soft arms wrap
around her torso, the color of her eyes that match the emerald gemstone still in my pocket, and soft pink lips I never got to touch.
Goodbye, my Maddy. I stand and find the strength to walk out the door and leave the best thing that has ever happened to me.

 Excerpt 3

 My heart flutters. I really do like MJ. I blush and pop a few grapes into my mouth. As ecstatic as that makes me feel, I still don’t know, fully, if I can trust him—not until I know what he is. “So … you still haven’t answered my original question. Government experiment, superhero, or something else. Which is it?”
He sighs, shaking his head. “I wasn’t created in a lab somewhere.”
“What about an alien?”
“Wouldn’t that fall under the category of magician?”
“Magicians are usually fake. Warlocks and witches could be real. So are you one?”
Stumped, I rest my chin on my hand and huff in exasperation.
“Give up?” he asks.
“No. But I’ve made some good progress on my list.”
“You have a list?”
“Uh huh.” I toss a few more grapes into my mouth.
“Of what you think I might be?”
I nod.
“I don’t suppose you could just let it go?”
I narrow my eyes at him. “If I did a bunch of crazy things that you couldn’t explain, would you let it go?”
He smirks and shakes his head. “You win.

~Review Tour & Giveaway: Romancing My Love by Melissa Foster~

Romancing My Love
The Bradens # 9
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing September 15th, 2014

After months of caring for her terminally ill mother, Rebecca Rivera is left all alone in a world she doesn’t trust—but she’s determined not to let her mother’s death define her. Losing her job, having to pummel some jerk for being too handsy, and living in her car are just temporary setbacks to an otherwise solid plan in finding her footing. Full of pride and used to being in control of her life, she’s certain she can make it on her own. The last thing Rebecca needs is a man to fix her troubles—even if that man is strikingly handsome, wealthy, and charismatic Pierce Braden.

Pierce is a powerful real estate investor on the verge of a major acquisition. As the eldest of six siblings raised by a single mother, he’s spent his life protecting those he loves. He’s used to being in charge and making things right, and although he’d give his life for his family, he treats the women he dates as expendable—until he meets sexy and stubborn Rebecca Rivera, a woman who is as strong as she is vulnerable.

Passion ignites between them, and the two share their most intimate thoughts and desires. It doesn’t take long for Pierce to realize that Rebecca is as determined not to be saved as he is to find a way into her heart. As their love grows, Rebecca must face fears she didn’t even realize she had—and Pierce must learn the hard truth that sometimes less really is more. Is the power of true love enough for Rebecca and Pierce to learn to give up control and allow their hearts to take over?

Overall Rating:  5 Rockin’ ★★★★

This is a story about two people that have suffered and survived the loss of loved ones and survived.  The ability to overcome their losses is met in different way but both find themselves on a path that leads them to each other.  My heart bled for Rebecca as she dealt with the loss of her mother and cried for Pierce as he found his way through the loss and betrayal of his father.  Love takes many forms but finding your true love makes for an unforgettable experience and this book gives the reader that experience.

Rebecca lost her best friend, confidant and mother to a cruel disease, lung cancer. She put her life on hold to care for her mother for the last three years and had no regrets for the precious gift of that time with her mother. Now, however, she found herself without a job, homeless and no one to turn to. While leaving a bar, she is accosted by a drunk and takes her frustrations out on him when she defends herself.  She is taken aback by a beautiful, chivalrous man that comes to her aid and a connection is formed between them.  Rebecca does not have time for a relationship, after all she is living out of her car and she has to find a job fast.  Through an acquaintance she was given an opportunity to interview for a possible job at a local resort.    

Pierce has been blessed with family.  His mother, four brothers and sister have been the center of his life since his father left them for another woman.  As the oldest male in his family he assumed the role head of the house.  Life has revolved around family and building his business with one night stands on the side until one night when he sees a woman across a crowded room that will forever change his life.  When he attempts to come to her aid, she brushes him off and leaves.  He follows her and tries to find out more about her, but she gives him a false name and disappears.  Pierce cannot believe his eyes when he looks across the lobby of his resort and there she is the woman that disappeared, looking as beautiful as her remembers.  Has fate stepped in and given him the opportunity to woo her? Will she give him the chance to get to know her?
