Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she’s convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her in the middle of the rain storm must be too good to be true. Or is he?

As a successful photographer who frequently travels around the world, Chase Sullivan has his pick of beautiful women, and whenever he’s home in San Francisco, one of his seven siblings is usually up for causing a little fun trouble. Chase thinks his life is great just as it is–until the night he finds Chloe and her totaled car on the side of the road in Napa Valley. Not only has he never met anyone so lovely, both inside and out, but he quickly realizes she has much bigger problems than her damaged car. Soon, he is willing to move mountains to love–and protect–her, but will she let him?


For thirty-six years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he’s planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all.

Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name – Nico – for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only, what no one knows about the twenty-five year old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false. After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is…or hurt her again. Especially not the gorgeous stranger she meets at a nightclub, even though the hunger – and the sinful promises – in his dark eyes make her want to spill all her secrets.


Gabe Sullivan risks his life every day as a firefighter in San Francisco. But after learning a brutal lesson about professional boundaries, he knows better than to risk his heart to his fire victims ever again. Especially the brave mother and daughter he saved from a deadly apartment fire…and can’t stop thinking about.

Megan Harris knows she owes the heroic firefighter everything for running into a burning building to save her and her seven-year-old daughter. Everything except her heart. Because after losing her navy pilot husband five years ago, she has vowed to never suffer through loving – and losing – a man with a dangerous job again.

Enjoy the following excerpt from THE LOOK OF LOVE...

Chase almost missed the flickering light off on the right side of the two-lane country road. In the past thirty minutes, he hadn’t passed a single car, because on a night like this, most sane Californians—who didn’t know the first thing about driving safely in inclement weather—stayed home.

Knowing better than to slam on the brakes—he wouldn’t be able to help whomever was stranded on the side of the road if he ended up stuck in the muddy ditch right next to them—Chase slowed down enough to see that there was definitely a vehicle stuck in the ditch.

He turned his brights on to see better in the pouring rain and realized there was a person walking along the edge of the road about a hundred yards up ahead. Obviously hearing his car approach, she turned to face him and he could see her long wet hair whipping around her shoulders in his headlights.

Wondering why she wasn’t just sitting in her car, dry and warm, calling Triple A and waiting for them to come save her, he pulled over to the edge of his lane and got out to try and help her. She was shivering as she watched him approach.
"Are you hurt?"

She covered her cheek with one hand, but shook her head. "No."
He had to move closer to hear her over the sound of the water hitting the pavement in what were rapidly becoming hailstones. Even though he’d turned his headlights off, as his eyes quickly adjusted to the darkness, he was able to get a better look at her face.
Something inside of Chase’s chest clenched tight.

Despite the long, dark hair plastered to her head and chest, regardless of the fact that looking like a drowned rat wasn’t too far off the descriptive mark, her beauty stunned him.
In an instant, his photographer’s eye cataloged her features. Her mouth was a little too big, her eyes a little too wide-set on her face. She wasn’t even close to model thin, but given the way her T-shirt and jeans stuck to her skin, he could see that she wore her lush curves well. In the dark he couldn’t judge the exact color of her hair, but it looked like silk, perfectly smooth and straight where it lay over her breasts.

It wasn’t until Chase heard her say, "My car is definitely hurt, though," that he realized he had completely lost the thread of what he’d come out here to do.
Knowing he’d been drinking her in like he was dying of thirst, he worked to recover his balance. He could already see he’d been right about her car. It didn’t take a mechanic like his brother, Zach, who owned an auto shop—more like forty, but Chase had stopped counting years ago—to see that her shitty hatchback was borderline totaled. Even if the front bumper wasn’t half smashed to pieces by the white farm fence she’d slid into, her bald tires weren’t going to get any traction on the mud. Not tonight, anyway.

If her car had been in a less precarious situation, he probably would have sent her to hang out  in her car while he took care of getting it unstuck. But one of her back tires was hanging precariously over the edge of the ditch.

He jerked his thumb over his shoulder. "Get in my car. We can wait there for a tow truck." He was vaguely aware of his words coming out like an order, but the hail was starting to sting, damn it. Both of them needed to get out of the rain before they froze.
But the woman didn’t move. Instead, she gave him a look that said he was a complete and utter nut-job.

"I’m not getting into your car."
Realizing just how frightening it must be for a lone woman to end up stuck and alone in the middle of a dark road, Chase took a step back from her. He had to speak loudly enough for her to hear him over the hail.

"I’m not going to attack you. I swear I won’t do anything to hurt you."
She all but flinched at the word attack and Chase’s radar started buzzing. He’d never been a magnet for troubled women, wasn’t the kind of guy who thrived on fixing wounded birds. But living with two sisters for so many years meant he could always tell when something was up.

And something was definitely up with this woman, beyond the fact that her car was half-stuck in a muddy ditch.
Wanting to make her feel safe, he held his hands up. "I swear on my father’s grave, I’m not going to hurt you. It’s okay to get into my car." When she didn’t immediately say no again, he pressed his advantage with, "I just want to help you." And he did. More than it made sense to want to help a stranger. "Please," he said. "Let me help you."
She stared at him for a long moment, hail hammering between them, around them, onto them. Chase found himself holding his breath, waiting for her decision. It shouldn’t matter to him what she decided.
But, for some strange reason, it did.

Blog Tour: Bullets and Bonfires by Autumn Jones Lake #Excerpt & #Giveaway

Today I have a Excerpt of Bullets and Bonfires for you. Grab a iced lemonade and get ready to be get get hot under the collar in Bullets and Bonfires!

The one man she’s always wanted is now the sexy sheriff of their hometown.
Battered but not broken, grad student Brianna Avery returns to the childhood home she abandoned four years ago. With her abusive ex behind bars, Bree needs the summer to relax and recover before returning to school. But her overprotective brother decides she needs someone to babysit her in his absence, and he picks the one person guaranteed to drive her nuts.

She’s the one woman he can’t have.
Telling Bree no has never been easy. Four years ago, Liam Hollister did it to preserve his friendship with his best friend—Brianna’s brother. Now, no matter how she tempts him, he’s determined to do the right thing. As deputy sheriff of their rural area, Liam is torn between protecting Brianna and wanting her for himself.

Take a risk or lose the chance.
Spending so much time alone together challenges them both. Old feelings and hurts resurface immediately. With each hot, sweaty day it’s harder to deny their attraction.
It’s going to be a long, hot summer.

There’s so much weirdness going on here tonight. 
Keegan and Liam seem to be challenging each other. Sully and Jake seem to be afraid to even look at me.
And let’s not forget Liam has his arm around my shoulders.
Even so, I’m enjoying hanging out with Liam and his friends. It’s like catching a rare glimpse into his world. The guys are obviously close and know how to walk a fine line between entertaining and irritating each other. I’m happy to be a part of it, even if only for a short while.
Liam leans over and whispers in my ear. “Do you want to go somewhere else for dinner?”
His all-consuming heat gives me a jolt. I turn and our lips almost collide.
My mouth twitches into a shaky smile. It’s hard to concentrate with him studying me so closely. “I’m okay. This is fun.”
“You trying to get away from us, Hollister?” Jake asks, pulling Liam’s attention away and giving me a chance to breathe.
“Yeah, I don’t want Bree exposed to your deviance.”
“Are you always this mean to your friends?” I tease.
“Only Jake.”
“He considers me more of an obligation than a friend,” Jake explains, jerking his thumb in Sully’s direction. “’Cause he’s friends with my brother.”
“Ohh, I’m familiar with that situation. We should compare notes.” Nervous laughter follows my words. But I’m the only one who seems to think it’s funny.
Liam’s whole body tenses and his hold on me tightens. His silent way of telling me he doesn’t see me as a chore?
“Our waitress looks overloaded, I’m gonna go up to the bar. Anyone need anything?” Keegan asks as he slides out of the booth. Jake gives him an absurdly long list, which Keegan ignores. Sully slaps his brother on the arm and follows Keegan to the bar.
Liam leans down, his lips brushing my ear again. “Let’s be clear, you’ll never be an obligation to me.”
If only that was true.

Blog Tour: All Or Nothing At All (Billionaire Builders #3) by Jennifer Probst (#Review)

Today I have a review stop for ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL, the last book in the Billionaire Builders trilogy by Jennifer Probst. Grab a cuppa and enjoy!


HGTV’s Property Brothers meets The Marriage Bargain in this third volume in the Billionaire Builders series, an all-new, heart-wrenching, and sexy contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.

Tristan Pierce left the family business to carve out a life of his own, but never forgot his passionate affair with the much younger, inexperienced Sydney Greene, or the hurtful breakup that tore him apart. When he’s forced to return home and face his past, will he be able to carve out a future, or will lies ruin his second chance at love?

Sydney Greene loved Tristan her entire life but when he left, he took not only her heart, but her trust along with him. Now that they’re together again, it’s time they both face the biggest secret of all...

Amazon / Kindle / B&N / Nook / Ibooks / KOBO

In All Or Nothing At All we meet our third and final Pierce brother, Tristan. The story in short is about Tristan who had a relationship with a girl named Sydney but for certain reasons their relationship didn't work out. Now years later there working together again and maybe having feelings for each other, only there may be a secret holding one of the parties back.

All Or Nothing At All is the last book in the trilogy. As each book is a story about each Pierce brother you can read then as standalone s. Personally I have only read the second book and now the third but I do feel I would have liked to have read the trilogy from the beginning as I like to have all the information. That's just my personal preference the author has stated they can be read as standalone s so I have to go with her.

As this is my second Jennifer Probst book I have come to the conclusion that Jennifer writes great relationships. The road to happily ever after isn't all butterflies and rainbows but it takes work and hardship. They may have a past to deal with or a secret that will effect their relationship but you see there highs and lows. There may be some miscommunication holding our lovers back but it's not as nauseating as some books. Jennifer writes stories that feel real they may be bumped up and have a little extra drama for enjoyment sake but underneath there real.

The same as in the past book it's told in duel POV and I liked it. You could see where they where both going wrong and the small mistakes that just kept knocking them of track. I really like Jennifer's writing and I can picture the story clearly. I think this series as a whole would make a good TV show following the up' s and down of the pierce brothers lives and love lives.

The only one negative I have is like the previous book about 70 per cent though the book the character does something totally out of character in my opinion. I kinda get why he did but like in the previous book it seems to be a trend. I would be interested to read the first book to see if Cal does this.

Overall I really like All Or Nothing At all I enjoyed the story, liked the characters and loved Jennifer's writing. This is a trilogy I highly recommend you check out. 3.75 stars!

Thank you to InkSlinger PRfor the review copy!

Blog Tour: Stubborn As A Mule by Juliette Poe #Review

Today on my blog tour stop for Stubborn As A Mule by Juliette Poe I have a review. Grab a iced lemonade and a cupcake and get yourself a copy of Stubborn As A Mule.

The Sex and Sweet Tea Series
by Juliette Poe

Down in Whynot, NC, there are three things that hold true: 1) life moves just a little bit slower, 2) family means everything, and 3) you don’t mess with history.

When his family decides to sell a home that’s been part of their history for over a century, Lowe Mancinkus is madder than a hornet. To add insult to injury, the woman who purchased it is some fancy pants, city girl looking to fix it up and sell it off. Doesn’t matter that she’s sexy as hell or that just being near her gets his blood racing like never before. That home belongs to his family, or at least it did until she came to town.

Well that just won’t do, now will it?

From the moment that she laid eyes on the historical home in rural North Carolina, Melinda Rothschild knew Mainer House was something special. The perfect escape from life in New York City, Melinda signed the papers and set to work restoring the house to its natural beauty. That is until an angry Lowe showed up on her doorstep one day. With a scowl on his handsome, chiseled face. And a shotgun in his strong, muscular arms.

Is it getting hot in here?

Melinda’s about to get a lesson on life in the south, but Lowe is about to learn a lesson of his own – this city girl doesn’t back down from a fight.

 Amazon / B&N / ibooks /Google Play / KOBO 

Stubborn As A Mule is the second book in The Sex and Sweet Tea series but can be read as a standalone. I absolutely adored this book, it was southern sweetness at its best.

Stubborn As a mule follows Lowe who is outraged that his historical home has been brought by a stuck up Yank who is just going fix it and flip it and he not having it. He decides the best course of action is to paint it pink and threaten the builders with a shotgun, it would only happen in the small town of Whynot. 

This story was just so refreshing, it's a sweet romance with sex implied and it was just so different from reading books with sex scene after sex scene. The romance was so slow burn and I can't help using the word sweet because it just was. There is some really sweet romantic scenes in this book and I swooned at them. The characters where so engaging and the town of Whynot was such a big character itself. The people in it where such that of a southern town I loved it. 

Though out the book you get snippets from people around the town speculating on Mely the Yank who brought the house and Lowe who is our house painting villian ;)and there relationship and it just made the story so much fun. The cast of characters where so good, and I just want to visit Floyd at his hardware store and call into Sweet cakes bakery for a cupcake.

I really enjoyed the writing and could picture myself there with the characters. The Story is told in duel POV and I just think it suited the story perfectly. 

Overall I highly recommend Stubborn As a mule it's a quick, fun, sweet southern romance and I can't wait to read more about Whynot in upcoming books. 4 massive stars!

*Thank you Inkslinger PR for the review copy*


Juliette Poe is the sweet and swoony alter ego of New York Times Best Selling author, Sawyer Bennett.

A fun-loving southern girl, Juliette knows the allure of sweet tea, small towns, and long summer nights, that some of the best dates end sitting on the front porch swing, and that family is top priority. She brings love in the south to life in her debut series, Sex & Sweet Tea.

When Juliette isn’t delivering the sweetest kind of romance, she’s teaching her southern belle daughter the fine art of fishing, the importance of wearing Chucks, and the endless possibilities of a vivid imagination.
