RELEASE BLITZ - Crash by Amity Cross @givemebooksblog @amitycross

Title: Crash
Series: The Beat and The Pulse #3
Author: Amity Cross
Genre: Erotic Romance
 Release Date: September 22, 2015


Violet Fuller has been through a lot in her short life.

After being viciously attacked, she’s hidden herself away from the world for the past five years, fearing everyone and everything. That’s until the day she finally gathers the courage to go outside.

Violet decides to take a job at Ash’s new gym, Pulse, to reacquaint herself with the male dominated world of MMA. She used to be her brother’s biggest supporter, going to all his matches and cheering him on. There’s no one he trusts more to help him run the admin side of his new business, but when Violet walks through the door for the first time, she sees someone she wasn’t expecting.

Handsome, AUFC fighter, Lincoln Hayes.

The same Lincoln Hayes that she’s had a crush on since she was sixteen.

All muscled, disciplined, hot as hell, six-foot two of him. He’s definitely not a boy anymore.

Things are about to become more difficult than Violet had hoped. So much for easing back into reality.

And Lincoln? He’s only got one thing on his mind.

How do you win over a woman who is afraid of everything?


You fight.

~*~ Obsessed by Books arc given in exchange for an honest review ~*~

"In that split second, my heart felt like it was going to burst. I was in trouble. I already knew it, but I wasn't getting out of it..I was in lust with Lincoln Hayes for life without parole."

Snatching glimpses of Violet Fuller in previous books in The Beat and The Pulse series this is her time to step into the limelight. Little sister to the mighty Ash she has been used against him as she was his only weakest, having been raped by his rival and left to suffer the consequences. Valiantly trying to move past the pain and trauma of the past she is proud of her brother and all he has accomplished against the odds but yearns for her happily ever after. Trapped in her small bubble of safety Ash encourages to push herself and expand her perimeters. Together with the support of Ren and her counsellor Violet takes small steps towards conquering her all consuming fear...

A careless injury benches Lincoln from fighting so he returns home to rest and takes the opportunity to catch up with Ren and Ash now that things have settled for the pair. Just in time for the grand opening of Ash's new gym, they come to a mutually beneficial agreement. Linc agrees to help with the training sessions and Ash has a recognised fighter representing and promoting his gym. Eager to bump into Violet Linc is set to get to work! Caught up in emotions from years ago Linc still views Violet as the unobtainable...whilst she feels she is just too damaged to be the woman of his dreams.

This is a softer, more subtle read compared to the other books in the series. The tone reflects the main character personality...Violet is quietly under control on the surface and a hive of activity inside. Her underlying courage and strength is wonderful to read. Having suffered needlessly Violet has struggled to come to terms with her feelings of shame and horror. Haunted daily by the violent events and the heavy price both Ash and herself paid as a result Violet has decided to live and recapture her old self. Hope sparks to life just going in close proximity to her teenage crush, the woman she had the promise to be waking up from her slumber and fighting to emerge once more. The fight in this story is within Violet. Determined to make it to the last round Violet has set her sights on the prize - Lincoln. As always nothing is ever easy and Lincoln has suffered a few knocks to his head based on his lack of judgement in this story! Making stupid mistakes he has much to prove and a long way to go before he can keep his promise and help Violet learn to live again. I never thought hairspray could be so romantic! Will they, won't they? Can this bull headed pair overcome all the obstacles in their path?

A four and a half star 1...2...3 and you're out read.

RELEASE BLITZ- Sweet Obsession by J. Daniels @givemebooksblog @JDanielsbooks

Title: Sweet Obsession
Series: Sweet Addiction #3
Author: J Daniels
Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance
 Release Date: September 22, 2015


***Author’s note*** Sweet Obsession can be read as a standalone novel.

Everyone knows Brooke Wicks loves to have a good time. She’s not interested in getting serious, settling down, or limiting herself to one man. So when she meets the sexy, irresistible Mason King, she sees another opportunity to let loose and go wild. But the gorgeous Aussie isn’t interested in just a quick fling with Brooke, and if she wants to get into his bed, she’s going to have to do it on his terms.

Loving fast and hard has always been Mason’s philosophy. He doesn’t want a meaningless connection, he wants it all, and he wants it with Brooke. When she makes her one desire known—to hit it and quit it—Mason wages a plan to ensure Brooke keeps coming back for more. Or so he hopes.

Getting her attention was the easy part. Keeping it might be damn near impossible.

Sweet Obsession is where the Sweet Addiction series meets the Alabama Summer series.

    Elizabeth Carlson is living in the pits of hell- also known as grief.
    Her husband of eight years, the father of her four children and the love of her life, died from cancer. Grady’s prognosis was grim, even from the start, but Liz never gave up hope he would survive. How could she, when he was everything to her? Six months later, she is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life and get the kids to school on time. Both seem impossible. Everything seems impossible these days. When Ben Tyler moves in next door, she is drowning in sorrow and pain, her children are acting out, and the house is falling apart. She has no time for curious new friends or unwanted help, but Ben gives her both. And he doesn’t just want to help her with yard work or cleaning the gutters. Ben wants more from Liz. More than she’s capable of ever giving again. As Liz mourns her dead husband and works her way through the five stages of grief, she finds there’s more of her heart to give than she thought possible. And as new love takes hold, she peels away the guilt and heartache, and discovers there’s more to life than death.

    Release Blitz for EVEN BETTER: A Stripped Novella, #2.5 by Skye Warren. @skye_warren

    Title: EVEN BETTER (A Stripped Novella, #2.5)
    Author: Skye Warren
    Genre: Dark Erotic Romance
    Release Date: September 22, 2015
    A story about how coming together can break us apart… An old military friend of Blue’s comes to stay with us, and suddenly I have two muscled men surrounding me. Before I can take a breath, we’re diving into something dirty together—something dangerous. Dangerous because three is a crowd. This is Blue’s best friend, and one of us will have to leave.  
    I expect West to laugh. They have a competitive camaraderie that is fun to be around. Except he doesn’t laugh. He doesn’t even crack a smile. Instead his gaze drops to where Blue’s hand is on my ass. For the first time since he showed up, lust flashes across his face. Nervous, I glance at Blue. He’s watching me, lids low, a dark expression on his face. He knows exactly what he’s doing, and I think he likes it. It’s some kind of tease, an extension of their friendly competitiveness, natural and somehow intimate. So intimate it makes me wonder if they’ve ever done more than tease. My eyes widen. “Have you and him ever…?” The corner of Blue’s mouth lifts. “What’s that, beautiful?” “You know,” I stammer. “Shared a girl.” The words come out in a rush, and I know from the sultry, smug looks on their faces that I’m right. “Not shared,” Blue says. “Not exactly. But I watched sometimes, sure. We’d get a night off and head to the bar near base. There are, what? Two men for every woman there. Maybe more.” “Some girls like an audience,” West says, the drawl in his voice more pronounced. The room feels twenty degrees hotter as testosterone and arousal swirl in the air. I had no idea that Blue was kinky enough to watch a couple have sex—although he’s been plenty kinky in other ways with just me and him. I imagine being some girl in a bar, being picked up by two men as big and strong and sexy as these two. It’s overwhelming…and I realize I may not have to imagine it after all. Blue watches me from slitted eyes. My voice is shaking. “Did you want me to—” “You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to, beautiful. We’re just getting to know each other, after all.” It makes me wonder if he thinks I’ll do more once I know West better. It makes me wonder if I even want to do more. Of course West is a handsome man, but being shared? “Umm.” Blue shifts in his chair slightly, so my leg is trapped around his, and I’m slightly more exposed—facing West fully. “Maybe we could give him something to see,” he murmurs. “A nice little memory to bring to bed with him. Would he like that?” West is completely still, lean body full of tension. “Christ, yes.” He pushes back in his chair, his expression more pain than pleasure. “Only if you’re okay, Hannah. Only if…” “I’m okay,” I say, stronger now. God, if there’s one thing I know how to do, it’s to give a man a show. “I want to.” Just like Blue and West think all they can do is fight, all I can do is dance. And this isn’t even dancing for strangers. This is dancing for the man I love—and his best friend. Except dancing isn’t what Blue has in mind.

    Most men only see what they want to. The flirty stripper, the gloss and glitter and sex.
    They don’t know I dance to the songs in my head–to the psalms I can’t forget. I learned about power from within holy walls, always following the scriptures, always obedient until the day I escaped. No matter how much paint I wear, I can never cover up the girl they made. My conditioning runs too deep. Ivan sees what I am. That’s the thing about showing a mouse to a cat. He wants to play. And it’s terrifying, even for me. Because the only thing darker than my past is his.
