Tousle Me by Lucy Morgan Cover Revel

Tousle Me: A New Adult Parody by Lucy V. Morgan
Publication date: December 13th 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

He’s exquisitely hot. Exquisitely tousled. Exquisitely screwed in the head.
Cammibelle Hicks just wants to survive her first year of college. Desperate to forget her troubled past, she throws herself into her degree and book review blog. So what if her life is one long tumblr page of grumpy cat GIFs? She doesn’t need to get out more, and she definitely doesn’t need a man.
Hunter von Styles approaches life like he’s spoiling for a fight: with a tempting scowl. A cage-fighting, ex-rocker billionaire, it’s unclear why Hunter’s at college. Frankly, it makes no sense. Then Cammie falls into him—literally—at a party, and he’s obsessed. He needs her more than a moist towelette at a barbecue.
Though Cammie’s friends warn her against Hunter, she can’t resist his charms; especially not when he buys her shoes. And GoodReads. And a unicorn. But when her handsome best friend, medieval reenactor Archer Riddick, makes a play for her heart—and challenges Hunter to a jousting match—it turns out that Hunter has demons of his own. Demons that aren’t real ones, but metaphorical ones—which are MUCH WORSE, when you think about it…
Join Hunter and Cammie on an emotionally exhausting journey into love.
And co-dependence.
And probably therapy.

Lucy writes sharp contemporary fiction, usually with a liberal splatter of filth. She is a Lyrical Press author, an editor and a screenwriter.

Her new adult novel, TWISTED SUMMER, is a gutsy take on forbidden love starring an even gutsier heroine.

Her contemporary series, encompassing CHAIRMAN OF THE WHORED and THE WHORED'S PRAYER, features slick London lawyers with a penchant for sensual violence. BEAUTIFUL MESS, her romantic comedy novella, is a snarky, sexy friends-to-lovers romp.

In TOUSLE ME: A New Adult Parody, Lucy pays homage to the books she loves in the best way she knows how...by mocking them mercilessly.

Lucy lives amid a graveyard of scented candles and half-read books. She's still trying to kick her dirty Pepsi habit.

Blue Lines by Toni Aleo

Title: Blue Lines (Assassins Series #4)
Author: Toni Aleo
Publication Date: 8/13/2013
Genre: Romance

Book Synopsis:
Opposites do more than just attract in Tony Aleo’s latest Nashville Assassins novel about a very bad boy and the good girl he can’t resist.

The instant Piper Allen sees Erik Titov, she wants him—wants his rock-hard body, sure, but the strength and mystery that lie behind that superstar hockey jock demeanor, too. So when he sidles up to her at a bar and slinks his arm around her waist, she’s lost. What follows is the wildest night of her life . . followed by inevitable heartbreak the next morning. And then, a few weeks later, a very big surprise: two blue lines on a pregnancy test.

Only a check to the head could make Erik fall for a nice girl like Piper. But since their crazy-sexy night together, he’s been trying to forget about her alluring body by falling into bed with every woman in Nashville, and it’s not working. So when Piper shows up at his house with a baby-bomb to drop, it doesn’t take much for Erik to suggest the nuclear option: marriage. While it’s supposed to be all for show, the second they say “I do,” the ice between them starts to melt into sizzling steam.

His Wicked Games By Ember Casey

Title:  His Wicked Games Boxed Set
Author:  Ember Casey
Genres:  Romance
Categories: Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance
Publisher: Ember Casey           
Release Date: Oct. 25, 2013
Word Count/Length:  140,000 words (70,000 each book)

Amazon : B&N

 This boxed set includes HIS WICKED GAMES (His Wicked Games #1) and TRUTH OR DARE (His Wicked Games #2).

In HIS WICKED GAMES, Lily Frazer will do anything to save the Frazer Center for the Arts—even take on the infamous billionaire Calder Cunningham. When Lily breaks onto the Cunningham estate, she only wants to find and reason with Calder. (All right, all right, she wants to punch him in the face, too, but that's Plan B.) As it turns out, the arrogant billionaire is willing to give her the money he promised, but there's a catch: she must win it from him.

And the games he has in mind aren't exactly... innocent.

In the sequel, TRUTH OR DARE, Lily and Calder decide to take their relationship to the next level. But love in the real world isn’t all fun and games—especially when it becomes clear that Calder still harbors his share of secrets.

When Calder suggests they hold off on sex for a while, Lily makes him a proposal he can’t refuse: an ongoing match of Truth or Dare that she hopes will bring them closer together both physically and emotionally.

But as the contest increases in intensity, so do the stakes, and suddenly Lily and Calder have to face the question they’ve both been avoiding: what sort of relationship do they have when they strip away all the games?

Ember Casey is a twenty-something writer who lives in Atlanta, Georgia in a den of iniquity (or so she likes to tell people). When she's not writing steamy romances, you can find her whipping up baked goods (usually of the chocolate variety), traveling (her bucket list is infinite), or generally causing trouble (because somebody has to do it).

Rockin Tapestries by Shari Copell

Book Blurb:
“Asher Pratt had been a drug for me, and I wasn’t sure I wasn’t still addicted.”

Chelsea Whitaker works as a waitress at Tapestries, a trendy Pittsburgh bar. She’s doing her best to avoid Asher Pratt, the Pittsburgh rock legend who shattered her heart years ago.

When he takes a job at Tapestries just to be near her, Chelsea has some decisions to make. 

She soon discovers that some things never change. It’s all she can do to keep a tight hold on her heart as Asher takes her for another wild ride.

As she struggles to gain some perspective on their relationship, she learns that he’s never needed her more. She must put the past aside for the sake of the future.

What a travesty, Chels and Asher have such a strong connection but not being 100% honest Is their downfall. 
My heart went out to Chels with all the heartbreak and scary sitsituations that happen to her. Throughout it all she didn't break but def changed, no one could go through all that and not change. I felt for her in the decision she made to move on and lay the past to rest. The seed that will always be planted in her head. Overall good book, characters are realistic and gradually evolve with changes happening around them. 

Heres a sneak peek at a deleted scene from Rock'n Tap

i put my hand against Asher’s cheek, reveling in the warmth I felt there.  His face was smooth with just a slight hint of stubble near his jaw line. God, he was so...mine. Couldn’t he sense what he meant to me?
 I soaked him in like a sponge: his scent, his presence.  Everything about him lit a fire inside me.  I remember thinking you only get this once in a lifetime. Once.  And the man who triggered such a violent chemical response inside me didn’t want me.  How was I supposed to make that right in my mind?

   .                  I give Rock'n Tap 

Though I write contemporary romance under the name Shari Copell, my real name is Sherry Jesberger.  I write a historical fantasy/paranormal romance series under the name S.L. Jesberger.
I am an eleventh generation native of Pennsylvania.  My husband Gordon and I raised three lovely daughters, one of whom designs my book covers. Another daughter drew the map in the front cover of my historical fantasy series. 
I’ve always had stories swirling through my head. Crazy stuff, totally whack situations. I was a voracious reader as a child, choosing to escape into the world of books. I wrote stories when I was a teen, but quit as I grew up. (Keep in mind, there were no computers then. Writing a book or story consisted of a brand-new notebook and a ballpoint pen.) I found some of these early stories as I cleaned out my grandmother’s house after she passed. Unfortunately, I threw them away.
 I started writing again in 2012 after my husband lost his job. Aislin of Arianrhod was published in October of that year. I immediately began to work on the second book in the series, Winter’s Child.
Sometime in the middle of writing Winter’s Child, I had the inexplicable urge to swear like sailor, use modern vernacular, and write steamy sex scenes. I was amused and tried to push it aside. The language in a historical fantasy is obviously much different from a contemporary romance, so I had to behave myself.
 I finally just thought, fuck it. I’ll do it.  It was during that time that I started to write “Micah’s Island.” I simply needed to purge the wild story that had taken over my brain by then. It was so much fun to write.  What would happen if you met a man who had never seen a grown woman before? 
I chose the pen name Shari Copell because Micah’s Island was so very different from the Àlainnshire series. Copella was my grandmother’s maiden name—I just dropped the A.
For the most part, people seemed to like Micah, though he was a man of few words.  I got some nice (and not so nice) emails about it, mostly from people wanting a better ending. I promptly wrote them one.
I wasn’t sure I would ever write another contemporary romance until Rock’n Tapestries dropped into my head, nearly complete from beginning to end (though I did run some things past Tara Chevrestt, who edits for me. Her suggestions were invaluable.)  You just have to indulge your muse when that happens, as it doesn’t happen often.
Though the names and situations have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent, some of the things in Rock’n Tapestries were things that actually happened to me.  My husband was wearing a bass guitar the first time I ever laid eyes on him. As Chelsea says of Tage, “ I think I might’ve had to scoop my jaw off the floor.”  He’s the skinny dude in the gray tank top and orange guitar on the far right in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lXGyaHNWRI
I hope you’ve enjoyed Rock’n Tapestries. I’m currently having a blast working on a book about Nicks Sorenson, Asher’s daughter. I love this girl! It should be out sometime in 2014.
In the meantime, rock on!

Crossing the Line by Kele Moon

B&N: To come once book goes LIVE

Book Blurb:
Wyatt Conner is a hard man. A sixth generation sheriff in his hometown of Garnet. A former MMA fighter. His life is about following the rules and making sure everyone else in Garnet follows them too.

Before life hurt him, Wyatt was different. Love had once blinded him to his upbringing and made him defiant against anyone who tried to separate him from the girl he loved. He easily broke laws to ensure her safety.

When she left it destroyed him.

Now she's back.

Tabitha knew coming home was a mistake, but family obligation demanded it. She wasn’t expecting to run smack into the love of her life the same day she returned.

Despite the danger, Tabitha is powerless against the wild rush of desire that explodes between them the moment she finds herself in Wyatt’s arms again. She needs a second chance too, but she can't risk Wyatt finally discovering the real reason she left.

Even for another taste of true love.

Tabitha knows her haunted past will destroy both of them if Wyatt finds out. What she suffered through was too terrible and it's the one thing that will have him crossing the line for revenge.

Tabitha, Tabitha, Tabitha, oh how I've disliked you for two books. From Defying the Odds and Star Crossed you've already met Wyatt, the cocky retired fighter now sheriff twin brother of Jules and best friend of Clay. Through meeting Wyatt you hear tonnnns about Tabitha, the horrible chick who leaves him and goes to Florida to make a lot of money off Wyatts life. 
No bueno, i started the book wanting to know what was going on but wanting to punch her in the face. 
In my eyes Kele had her work cut out for her changing my mind, BUT of course i did. 
Though Jules has a point Tabitha should have trusted Wyatt with the issues she had I'm glad she comes back to deal with them. 
Tabithas mom is sick, though to proud to take any help Tabs comes home after years away to lend a hand, but the demons in a city she ran from didn't disappear and she's left picking up the pieces.

I give Wyatt credit for not moving on after over ten years apart and i understand by Tabs fears he will cross the line.
Finally you get their story with all its heart breaking pieces and you can do nothing but hope for a happy ending, for all those involved.
I love that Mel, Clay, Jules, Rom, Nova and everyone else's stories continue thru this book 
You def feel like you are part of this extended family as you read thru the series…..

I give Crossing the Line and the whole series by Kele Moon

Defying the Odds Purchase Links:
 Clay Powers and Melody Dylan, what huh who is Kele Moon and why is she not my best friend yet. Defying the Odds is a story of two people who couldn't be more opposite in societies eyes. Melody is running, not just from her past but from her ex husband who thought using her as a punching bag was the way to keep your marriage together. Clay Powerhouse Powers has his share of demons but a broken past doesn't prepare him for what Mel doesn't realize she has, the ability to heal.

Defying the Odds was such a great book for me, it def shows the base for a series. I feel like it was a tease because it ends and your wanting to know more. Overall Kele was about to take this story and give your the core base needed to understand Clay, the Connors and Mel history to better see how that brings them to the hear and now. Mel is a real women with real issues, being put into a world she didn't know existed but is quickly learning. 

Star Crossed Purchase Links:

Dear Romeo and Juliet, you might just be my favorite. Kele started this series gradual with Defying the Odds but Star Crossed was like a uppercut followed by a jab. After reading Defying the Odds i wanted to know what was going to happen with Romeo and Juliet, who doesn't with a couple named after one of the most tragic love story of all time! Kele didn't disappoint. Dealing with the mod, injuries, siblings and their own doubts the odds were against Jules and Rom from the beginning. I loved their journey to find each other and the people in their lives. Jules is strong and independent and Romeo is old school italian and stubborn but with all their heartbreak they fix together in such a perfect way. You fall in love with them as their courtship starts thru texts and Skype dates, your heart breaks when you get more and more into Romeos past and the strength thats made him who he is, then it ends and your happy with joy but want to know the small details, the little moments because all along you felt like they were your friends! Great book i def recommend readying them in order, not because its not a standalone but because they are awesome stories!

Crave by Ty Langston

 As a reporter for the Wakefield Post, Harper Erkstine has seen everything. From murders to robberies, all of her recent stories have ended with tragic consequences so great, that she began to question if she made the right career choice for herself.

While all of her friends were dating, or going to clubs, she was winning journalism awards for covering the latest drive-by shooting or a home invasion that cost someone she knew, their lives.

She loved her job, it was rewarding to be a crime solver and get to the truth of the matter. As much as she loved her job, but the hours of a Metro beat reporter began to descend her into burn out mode.

She craved balance. A break, a welcome distraction every now and then. She forgot what it was like to have fun, to take a breath, smell the roses.

Was it wrong to want a great career and to have some kind of a personal life? She couldn't remember the last time she had a date or danced with someone from the opposite sex.
In the middle of working on a missing persons story that has rocked her town to the core, Harper decides as a favor to her friend and colleague to do a feature on local an up and coming rock band, called CRAVE

It was a break from her routine, but Harper soon discovers that this band may have ties to the missing person, not only does she question why, but she also finds there is more to this band than just their music.

What, really but no. Crave is a perfect name for this book because it leaves you that way. I didn’t read anything about the book before I dove right in and im kind of glad I did, story took me by surprise. Crave, a hot new band has secrets, secrets that no one will understand. Once I got into the secret I have to admit I was a bit surprise (remember I didn’t read the book description). I was a bit worried it would be like every other book, and am glad to say I was wrong. I truly like Crave, I love how the story was gradual with so much information. Your given meaningful history in such a way you didn’t get bored. As the story gets starts to develop and you flying through words to see whats going to happen…booom, its over. AHHH lol I need more.
Great story, great characters and from where it leaves off Crave can only get better and I'm excited to see where Ty takes it.

I give Crave by Ty Langston

As a child, multi-published author Ty Langston loved to read about dragons and knights so much that one day, her grandmother told her to "just write about them."

So she did.

From that day forward, she never left home without her pen, a notebook, and some kind of music playing in the background. Her love of reading expanded from fantasy into science fiction, and eventually into paranormal romance and erotica.

She enjoys different works from George Martin, Anne McCaffrey, Stephen King, and Jackie Collins. But some of Ty's favorite writers are from the world of TV and film: namely, Tudors creator Michael Hirst, and the late John Hughes.
