After ZMT officially coins her as ‘The Cougarette’, CeeCee becomes a media sensation overnight.

Worst of all is the damage it has done to her relationship with Jay, whose mysterious backstory finds itself entangled in CeeCee's drama in a way neither of them ever could have imagined. With the help of her no-nonsense BFF/manager/unpaid life coach Laney, CeeCee attempts to dig herself out of this self-created chaos and maintain at least a shred of dignity. Will she be able to keep her life running smoothly, career and love life intact? Maybe - if she could just stop waking up in random hotel rooms.

In addition to planning a New York-style wedding and learning to work with her abrasive boss Bryce Costas, CeeCee has to also contend with Felicity Hunter as her client again and tolerate Billy BadAss’s new toxic girlfriend, Deja Renee Ramirez. When Bryce assigns Felicity to a modeling project at Graphix NYC, it puts her in direct contact with Jay.

After taking on some of Bryce’s traits, CeeCee has become a literal lean, mean, money-making machine…but is she happy? CeeCee soon finds that million-dollar deals aren’t enough to protect her when tragedy strikes and what she needs most is love - not lucrative ventures. Instead of more joy, CeeCee is getting more pain: a meddling father with unwarranted advice, a magazine editor determined to paint CeeCee as someone who slept her way to the top and a new project that forces her to work one-on-one with Jay (much to Bryce’s calm and cool chagrin!). When an unexpected life change threatens her relationship with Bryce, will CeeCee choose a luxurious jet-set life with the man she loves or a do-over life with someone that needs her love?

Tasty Book Tours is Pleased to Present...

Stephanie Dray & Laura Kamoie
Releasing March 1st, 2016
William Morrow
Historical Fiction 

In a compelling, richly researched novel that draws from thousands of letters and original sources, bestselling authors Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie tell the fascinating, untold story of Thomas Jefferson’s eldest daughter, Martha “Patsy” Jefferson Randolph—a woman who kept the secrets of our most enigmatic founding father and shaped an American legacy.

From her earliest days, Martha “Patsy” Jefferson knows that though her father loves his family dearly, his devotion to his country runs deeper still. As Thomas Jefferson’s oldest daughter, she becomes his helpmate in the wake of her mother’s death, traveling with him when he becomes American minister to France. And it is in Paris, at the glittering court and among the first tumultuous days of revolution, that she learns of her father’s liaison with Sally Hemings, a slave girl her own age.

Patsy too has fallen in love—with her father’s protégé, William Short, a staunch abolitionist intent on a career in Europe. Heartbroken at having to decide between being William’s wife or a devoted daughter, she returns to Virginia with her father and marries a man of his choosing, raising eleven children of her own.

Yet as family secrets come to light during her father’s presidency, Patsy must again decide how much she will sacrifice to protect his reputation, in the process defining not just Jefferson’s political legacy, but that of the nation he founded.

Book Tour! Blind Love by Kishan Paul

Blind Love, by Kishan Paul
Romance, novel

She doesn’t need a hero. But a sexy Marine…that’ll work.
Though Lauren Baxter’s world is a blurry mess of colors, she has no tolerance for pity. With the
help of her guide dog, Jack Sparrow, she’s built a good life for herself. She has everything she
wants: her PhD, a thriving counseling practice and her independence.
When she meets her new neighbor, the man’s warm Texas accent and clean male scent weaken
her knees. Her attraction to the former Marine is mutual and, unfortunately, a complication she
doesn’t need.
Gabriel Briggs carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. He has his reasons for indulging
only in short-term flings, but the feisty, green-eyed Lauren makes him want to forget every one.
In a rare moment of fragility, Lauren winds up in Gabe’s arms. One night together can’t break
their self-imposed rules, right? But when a woman from Gabe’s past is murdered, the reasons he
should have stayed away become painfully clear, threatening innocent lives he may not be able
to save—especially Lauren’s.

Product Warnings
Contains a blind therapist who doesn’t consider herself impaired; a meddling, erotic-novel-
writing best friend; a hot ex-Marine with a shady past; and a loyal guide dog that howls “I love 
you” and is probably the sanest one of the bunch.

The banging and Jack’s barking grew louder. Lauren ran her hands through her hair and 
made her way down the stairs with Sunny close behind.
At the door, her best friend leaned over her and peeked through the blinds.
“Oh Sweet Baby Jesus, who’s that?” she whispered.
Lauren pushed her away and blocked the entrance with her body. “If I could see, I’d tell 
“It’s a man. Open the door,” she ordered and tried to pull Lauren’s hand from the knob.
“No! We don’t know who he is,” she hissed.
“Lauren, it’s Gabe.” The way her name sounded in the baritone voice of his had her 
stomach doing the funny flipping thing again like it did yesterday in the backyard.
“Yes, Lauren, it’s Gabe,” Sunny imitated. “Now open the fucking door.”
“Hi, Gabe. Everything okay?” she asked, her voice huskier than she’d like.
“I heard screams. I tried calling a couple times and when you didn’t answer, thought I’d 
come over and check things out.”
“The neighbor with the power tools?” Sunny hissed. “The man is eye candy beautiful.”
“That doesn’t mean he’s not a rapist or serial killer,” Lauren hissed back.
Boney arms wrapped tight around her waist, lifting off the ground and planting her a few 
feet away from the entrance. Disoriented, Lauren was still figuring out which direction she was 
facing when the door rattled and opened.
“Hey,” Sunny said in her most seductive tone. After rolling her eyes, Lauren walked 
toward her friend’s voice.
“Hi,” Gabe cleared his throat. “I’m sorry, I was looking for Lauren.”
“I’m right here.”
“Sorry to bother you two. Like I said, I heard screaming…”
“So sorry; we were having a disagreement,” she answered before Sunny got a chance to 
give her interpretation of events.
“I’m Sunny.” Her voice sounded deep and breathy. Lauren cringed and resisted the urge 
to hit her.
“Hi, Sunny, I’m Gabe.”
“Nice to meet you, neighbor with the power tools.”
“Anyway, we’re fine. Thanks for checking.” Lauren reached over to shut the door but 
Sunny wouldn’t let it go.
“How sweet. Did you hear, Cat? He came here to see if you needed to be saved.” Since 
when did she start speaking with a Southern accent?
“I don’t need to be saved,” she muttered.
“That’s all relative now isn’t it, sweetheart? Why don’t you come in, Gabe? I just made 
some fresh coffee.”
“I’d love some. But if you don’t mind, let me go put some clothes on and I’ll be right 
A few seconds after he disappeared, Sunny blew out a breath and closed the door. 
“Honey, I do mind if you put on more clothes.”
“What’s wrong with you? You can’t let strangers into my home,” Lauren growled.
“Rule number one: When a man who looks like him walks up in nothing but hard 
muscles and a thin pair of boxers, you invite him in. Rule number two: Keep rocking those low-
cut tank tops and short biker shorts, ’cause he couldn’t keep his eyes off you.”
“Oh God,” Lauren pulled up the neck of her tank and rushed upstairs.
“Overweight and missing his front teeth,” Sunny muttered as she followed. “What the 
hell is wrong with you?”
Grabbing a pair of jeans and a shirt from the drawer, Lauren pulled them on over her 
sleepwear. “Not important. He was pushy and like I said, he’s been watching me.”
“No. Not true. He’s not watching you, he’s lusting after you. Here, let me paint him for 
Sunny had a knack for description. She’d taken on the responsibility of being Lauren’s 
eyes when she lost her vision and made it a point to reference people and movies they both 
“About six feet two, a mouth full of perfect white teeth, and ripped.” A lovely image of 
Gabe took shape. “If I didn’t have Scott, I’d have run my fingers down those hills and valleys 
right to the elastic band of his sweet black shorts and…”
“No sex fantasies, please, only facts.”
“Okay, fine. A mix of Matt Damon’s face from Goodwill Hunting, but better looking, 
and Tom Cruise’s body from Mission Impossible Two when he hung from the cliff, remember?”
Lauren bit her lip and nodded.
“But bulkier and much, much taller. He has this tribal tattoo around his right bicep. It’s a 
bunch of shapes, but looks hot. Dark hair buzzed short, strong jaw line, deep blue eyes, full lips 
I’m sure are capable of making some lucky woman, more specifically you, scream…”
She shook her head and pushed her sex-addicted friend aside while she made her way

This was an absolutely beautiful story, and I wanted it to never end! Where do I even begin to gush about everything that I loved about it? Yikes. There might be some rambling in this review, I am still overcome with emotions after reading this. I will start with Lauren. 

Lauren Baxter started losing her vision when she was in her teens. Now, as an adult, she is mostly blind but most certainly not disabled. Her early years were rough---with what her cheating ex-husband and high school sweetheart put her through---but she came out strong as she strived to prove her over-protective parents, her ex, and society wrong as just what a blind woman can achieve. Lauren is now fiercely independent and is far more successful than she could have ever imagined. 
Lauren is the type of heroine you always wished to see more of in romances. Determined, loyal, intelligent, independent. She wants nothing more than to focus on her life and thriving business, all on her own. Though, when her next door neighbor, Gabe, moves in with a big bang which disrupts her appointments with clients over the phone, she falls in a trap full of mixed emotions and is desperate to block them out.
Her hilarious best friend, Sunny, who is also her daytime personal assistant, is eager and excited to hear of this latest attraction and refuses to let Lauren wander away from this opportunity to let a little light and fun in her life again. Lauren is infamous for ultimately pushing away anyone she dates when she feels they are getting too close to her. 
Gabe, the enigmatic and handsome Texan, nearly knocks that habit out of the ballpark, though. He appears to be very flirtatious at first but when his POV arrives, we find that he’s been very intrigued about his neighbor upon his arrival in the neighborhood. He finds himself fascinated by her. Despite her blindness, he observes how well-calculated and effortlessly in control of her life she is. And oh wow, does this fascination take a turn after a roundabout of lust they had finally succumbed to. Those scenes, by the way, were SO DAMN HOT!! 
Later, we get a little insight of Gabe’s heartbreaking childhood. The discovery of his past made it even easier to appreciate and fall in love with him even more, see how well rounded and strong he came out to be. Lauren feels the same way; she’s just too damn stubborn to admit her feelings for him are deeper than just their late-night rendezvous. 
This extremely well-written book includes a spectacular cast of secondary characters as well who often times steal the spotlight. Such as Sunny. Then, we have Lauren’s big beast of a guide dog, Jack Sparrow, who I feel is a huge supporting character. He’s as much of a therapist as his owner is. With his humanlike fondness and interaction with other characters, that pup had a way of healing others emotionally. Lauren’s relationship with him was like that of a son and mother and so very comical! 
Also in this category is Ben, the high school sweet heart, ex-husband, and the foundation of Lauren’s animosity towards men. He shows back up in her life unexpectedly just as she and Gabe were beginning to make progress on giving romance another try. Ben quickly became the focus of a lot of my suspicion at one point when the story took a dive for a WILD turn of events. White knuckled, I held on to my Kindle praying that Gabe, Lauren, and other favorite characters would make it through the danger that lurked around the corners. While I had Ben in my crosshairs at first, the police department had their eyes on another target . . . Gabe. 

I would like to mention a few other secondary characters as well, but I don’t want to spoil what’s to come when Gabe’s mysterious, private life reveals itself. This was the point of the book that I delved deeper into the story, unable to put the book down whatsoever. I mean, my building could have been burning down and I wouldn’t have even realized it. I was so entranced trying to search for clues and solving what was behind the disaster that was screwing with my two favorite characters! 
The end is bitter sweet. While we have our HEA and SO many laughs with witty one-liners and comical scenarios peppered throughout the story, there were also many tear jerkers. Each of those elements together, however, is what placed this book into my top favorite, always to be cherished! 
Might I add, “Blind Love” is one hell of a debut novel, and I have most certainly found a new favorite author. Kishan Paul is a contemporary romance mastermind!

Release Day Blitz - Hell by Elena M. Reyes with an Excerpt and GIVEAWAY !

Add to Goodreads
How do I dominate and enamor the woman who’s in charge of signing my paycheck?
That’s the one question, Joshua Timbers, has been asking himself since he first stepped foot into his own personal Hell. JT, or Yoshi—as his tormentor likes to call him—has lived a life of hardship and loss since an early age. Being the product of a single parent home, he’s accustomed to hard work and lonely nights.
Seeing the strong man that raised him suffer after the loss of his mother made JT’s own heart harden. All that mattered was seeking instant gratification to curve his enormous appetite.
Until the blessed day he met his fallen angel, Janelle.
Beautiful, and with balls bigger than her entire crew, Janelle is accustomed to the leering looks of men, even though she’s their boss—the owner of Walker Constructions, alongside her brother.
Her beauty is untouchable to everyone, but how far will Joshua go to bend his hellion to his will and make her his?
Teaser 1
You wanted to see me?” At the sound of my voice, Janelle jumped in her seat. A tiny gasp escaped through her plumps lips, her eyes widening as our eyes locked. Gone was the secure seductress from earlier today. The one who walked through the job site’s parking area, hips swaying enticingly, while I held on for dear life to a slab of granite that she’d kill me for if I’d dropped.
Giving me shit while I couldn’t react. Not without consequences.
Yeah, I…” She cleared her throat, swallowing hard as her eyes traversed my almost naked torso. It was my turn to be cocky.
Eyes up here, sweetheart.” She didn’t like that one bit, the furrow in her brow and pursed lips telling me as much. “What’s up?”
Janelle sat behind her desk, a file open in front of her. Yet, except for those few papers strewn about, you couldn’t find any other sign of work. Not a goddamned receipt, invoice, or contract.
Then why did she look so tired? I’d be more than happy to discover what ailed her and take care of her every need. Teach her the pleasure I could give. How relaxed I’d leave her after taking what so sweetly hid between her thighs.
Taking in a deep breath, my girl squared her shoulders before standing up. Then, when she stood, I took in that she’d changed clothes. Gone was the sexy little number from before, the one that wrapped around her fucking beautiful body like a second skin and held a tiny bow across her hip.
I wanted to bite that string, hold it tight between my teeth, and like a rabid dog destroy it.
Now, she stood before me in something that could be a bit more dangerous for her—for the both of us. There she was; the picture of come-inducing innocence.
Denim fucking overalls.
These were not the standard Dickies brand work ones that came to mind. No. Fuck, no.
Janelle didn’t do simple. These were shorts; indecent and showed more than what was acceptable for this line of work. If she’d bent over just a tiny bit, her ass would peek out.
And my handprint would adorn the succulent flesh. I’d be fucked if she showed herself to anyone.
My eyes traveled up her body, and she shivered at my unapologetic perusal. So much skin. Temptation. Damn woman knew what her coy bullshit did to me.
What the fuck are you wearing!” This wasn’t meant as a question; more like an angry demand for answers. Underneath her overalls she wore a simple white tube top. Tiny. Cropped. Barely covered her breasts. “Are you kidding me right now?”
I’d attack her little ass. Who could blame me after all the cat and mouse games we played?
This old thing?” Batting her lashes, Janelle smiled at me. Baiting me into action.
Are you looking to get fucked? Because if that’s what you want—”
More like a ride.”
Her naturally perky tits held up by what seemed to be Lycra, nothing more. No bra strap. Just a quick tug—a pull, and I’d be savoring her taste. Enjoying the heaviness and natural sweet aroma she exuded.
Janelle, walk away before I take what you aren’t ready to give.” I was vibrating; my hands clenched at my sides as a raging war battled within me. A man could only take so much. “Lord knows I’m trying here, but you keep pushing. Enough already…bend over, or let’s get out of here.”
Eyes up here, Yoshi,” she snapped, mock anger coloring her tone at my abrasive words. But the quick inhale of air she took while I walked closer didn’t escape my notice. Her hands shook slightly, as if she wanted to reach out and touch me.
And if I refuse?” Another step, her body trembling—just a slight uncontrollable shiver that she tried and failed to hide.
Please.” Fuck. That one word—her tone, and I was putty in her motherfucking hands.
Why should I?” Then, it wasn’t just her body that shook—shivered from anticipation. There wasn’t a single molecule of my DNA that didn’t want her.
Felt her presence.
Her damn hold on me.
Tethered in a way I had no way to explain.
We can’t…just please.” Her voice was soft, breathy as she tried to put an invisible wall between us. She failed.
I love hearing you beg,” I admitted, and she didn’t disappoint. There it was. That spark. The fire I’d come to expect from her. “Plus, I’m enjoying this too much to stop.”
Fuck you.” Strike one. “And why should I beg? Men fall at my feet, Yoshi. I don’t bow down to anyone.” Janelle ran the tip of her tongue across her bottom lip and took her own step forward. Challenging me. Her reactions were making me dizzy.
One minute telling me to stop.
The next daring me to take her.
That entire room sizzled with our intensity.
Now, she was within my reach. So close. A mere two steps away.
Pulling her supple body against mine would be so easy. And she knew this, was aware of my every breath—every twitch of my cock against the denim of my jeans. Evading me as my hand reached out for her, and I growled out my displeasure.
Answer me, Yoshi,” she taunted, while tapping that bottom lip I craved to taste. “Why should I beg?” Another groan left me at the sight. I wanted to grab her. Fuck her against that goddamned desk she was always bent over. Another step closer, and now we were almost touching.
Her heat seared me.
Instead of touching me, though, the sexy bitch decided to walk around me, all the while running a slim finger across my shoulder blades and chest.
Quit fucking with me,” I all but snarled at her, body seizing, ready to devour my prey. “I’m not into games, sweetheart…bend over or move.” Because that’s what this was. A game. Survival of the fittest. Motherfucking prey versus predator.

Okay, first of all, thank you B N Toler for gifting me this ARC. I love you for doing this, because I absolutely LOVE your books !!! Seriously, to anyone that reads my reviews, this lady writes some good s@&*!! Her stories come straight from the heart, and they're stories that anyone can easily relate to.
Also, I strongly recommend you to read the first book of this series 'The Suit'. It sets this story up since Nikki and Parker have a fling in it. This book had a great flow to it, the romance was incredibly hot, with a believable storyline. I felt so bad for Nikki's character. She was dealt a crappy hand of a childhood, having her mother walk out on she and her father when she was so young, and obviously her father couldn't get over it, so he was cold as ice to her. Hell of a way to grow up. You have 1 parent, but he shows no love or compassion towards you. And that's how Nikki became the woman she is and why she is reserved / closed off when it comes to being in a relationship. She's afraid to open herself up and be loved. ….good thing Parker is relentless... hehehe. Ooooh... Parker. I need a man like him, LOL! I fell in love with his character. He has a very sexy demeanor about him. He's extremely playful, smart, and is absolutely determined to finish what he has started with Nikki Reese.
As I read the book, I could just picture his facial expressions and what he'd sound like. Nikki may push his buttons to the max with her hang-ups but thankfully, Parker is all about finishing what he started. And by god if he'll let the woman he loves that is carrying his baby slip thru his fingers for a second time.
Nikki is touching me, using me to hold her steady until she collects herself. It's all I want – to be her rock. - Parker Hayes

I loved this book and can't wait to see what's in store for Joey and Maddie!!! <3 !



Then it hit me.
But no . . . really? It couldn’t be.
But what other explanation could there be?
I had just taken her virginity.
Fuck me.
I walked back into the bathroom and tossed the condom. Cleaning up quickly, I ran a hand through my hair. She’d just lost her virginity on my uncle’s bedroom floor. I am such a fucking asshole. But why wouldn’t she have told me?
I didn’t know how to make this right. But I had to try. When I came back out, she was holding up her torn panties, giving me a pointed look with one brow quirked. “Sorry about that,” I laughed.
“Don’t be,” she chuckled as she bent down to grab her dress. God, her ass was the definition of perfection. To top it off, she still wore her heels and I felt my dick getting hard again.
“Why didn’t you tell me?” I asked.
She didn’t stop to look at me, but continued shaking her dress out. “Does it matter?”
Does it matter? Was she serious? Did she think I was some kind of asshole that wouldn’t have cared? That I wouldn’t have wanted to make it special for her? That pissed me off. “To me, it does,” I seethed.
“It was none of your business.”
“Are you fucking serious right now?” I asked calmly, but the edge to my voice conveyed how much I fucking hated what she’d just said. “Why the fuck didn’t you tell me? I feel like an asshole right now.”
This time, she looked at me. “Because I didn’t want you to hold back.”
My anger ebbed slightly. I moved toward her and she pulled the dress to her chest, covering herself. Yanking the outfit from her, I tossed it aside. “If you’d told me, I wouldn’t have held back. A man can be gentle and rough at the same time, Nicole.” Her tongue darted out and she licked her lips as I pulled her to me and pressed our bodies together. “I know we only have tonight, but let me show you. Let me show you how walking that fine line between pain and pleasure can be fucking phenomenal.”
She stared back at me, her bright eyes filled with a curiosity that bordered lust. As I leaned down and kissed her shoulder, she whispered, “Okay.”
