The Intern by @blcumberland !

She’s sexy, fierce, and a loud-mouthed know-it-all…and she’s completely off limits.

Cecilia isn’t your typical college student. Hell, she isn’t a college student at all, but that doesn’t stop her from applying for one of the biggest and prestigious enterprises in the Midwest.

She wants it. She takes it.
She doesn’t let anything get in her way when it comes to finding out the truth.

When Bentley Leighton, soon-to-be CEO of Leighton Enterprises, meets “Ceci,” he’s instantly impressed. He doesn’t have time to train a new intern. However, when he sees her that first day, his intentions begin to change.

He’s the boss. She’s the intern.
Nothing can happen. It’s against the company rules.

Then again, rules were made to be broken.

What starts as innocent flirting becomes raveled up into so much more—secrets, lies, deceit.

*The Intern is a three-part romantic suspense serial.*
Not suitable for readers under 18.

I’m browsing through emails on my phone as I ride the elevator down to the lobby. It halts on the third floor, and I back up to let more people on. I don’t lift my head up as the elevator starts again, but suddenly I’m hit with the sound of laughter.
It’s innocent, young, and vibrant. I’m intrigued, so I shift my body to get a better view of her. My eyes find the young girl in the front by the doors. I watch her from the side and notice she’s on her phone. She’s smiling wide and laughing with whomever she’s speaking to on the phone. The doors slide open, and I walk around a few people to exit, except the girl doesn’t move and I crash right into the back of her, pushing us both out of the elevator before the doors close. Instinctively, I wrap my free arm around her waist to catch her from face planting the floor. Her back is pressed against my chest and for a moment, I don’t want to let go.
Her phone isn’t as lucky. It slips out of her hand and lands on the lobby floor.
“Shit,” she curses and my arm frees her to bend down and grab it off the floor.
“I’m so sorry,” I begin apologizing as I step back. My eyes wonder to her bare legs and up her tone thighs to a pair of black workout shorts. She’s wearing a baggy sweatshirt as if she’d been running or working out. I can smell the fresh sweat on her, but it doesn’t turn me off. In fact, it does the exact opposite.
“That’s okay.” Her voice cracks as she turns around, and I finally get a good look at her. “Oh, Mr. Leighton,” she says surprised, and I immediately curse the bad luck that brings me to my new intern—Casey West.
“Miss West?” I finally say as she stares up at me in silence. “I thought you weren’t coming until Saturday?”
“Hide your disappointment, Mr. Leighton.” The corners of her mouth perk up into a cocky smile. “I was just picking up the paperwork and doing all the background check questions.” Her witty personality is spot on just like the last time.
Everyone that works or interns at Leighton Enterprises goes through an extensive background check for security reasons. All of the files are confidential, and only journalists reporting on the stories can know the exclusive information.
“Ah, yes. Of course, the paperwork.”
Paul failed to mention she’d be here today
She continues eyeing me, and I wonder if she feels the electricity between us as much as I do.
“Well, I’ll see you Saturday, Mr. Leighton,” she says as she is seductively smiling up at me. She quickly turns around and begins walking toward the lobby doors.
I put my phone in my pocket and shake the thoughts of Casey out of my head. This is crazy. I can’t think of her like that. She’s my goddamn intern.

A Sweet Life box set!

A Sweet Life Boxed Set (Fourteen Contemporary Romances by Bestselling Authors to Benefit Diabetes Research)
Publication date: May 1st 2014


         I have no memories of my paternal grandmother.  My best guess is that I was barely four years old when she died.  But, I like to think I inherited my love of knitting from her.  My older cousins tell the story of sitting in a semi-circle in front of her rocking chair and watching her crochet.  Her fingers moved at a frantic speed as she rocked back and forth.  The amazing part is that she was sound asleep and snoring! 
         My father, who was the youngest boy, was basically raised by his oldest sister, my aunt Betty, because my grandmother was diabetic.  She was often tired and sickly, spending the majority of her time in bed. 
         Another memory my cousins have shared with me is of our grandmother boiling her hypodermic needles because she was insulin dependent.  My father and three of my uncles were also diabetic and, by the end of their lives, insulin-dependent as well.  And now several of my cousins are affected by the disease. 
         Like my cousins, for the last twenty-five years I've been a Type 2 diet-controlled diabetic.
         Diabetes is a life-changing disease.  It's estimated that 25.8 million children and adults in the United States are diabetic.  That's 8.3% of the population.  My guess is that we all know someone who is diabetic.
         When Brenda Novak's youngest son, Thad, was diagnosed, she went on a one-woman mission to do whatever was necessary to fund research for a cure to this horrible disease.  If you've ever met Brenda you know she is passionate about making a difference.  This is her tenth year holding an auction to raise money for this cause and to date her efforts have resulted in more than $2 million dollars toward research for a cure. 
         The book you've purchased will go toward making the dream of a world free of diabetes a reality.  Each one of the authors on this long list of contributors has given of their talent and themselves to aid in this mission.  You're about to read some of the biggest names in the field of romance. 
         Three of these talented authors, Susan Wiggs, Barbara Freethy and Rachel Van Dyken, have scored #1 placements on the New York Times best seller lists.  Now that's impressive.  The remaining eleven are all well established authors with booming careers.  In other words, you are in for a real treat.
         And really, isn't this the best of all worlds?  Not only is this an enjoyable read but at the same time your purchase is contributing to a worthy cause.  You can't ask for a better win/win situation.
         It's been my honor to write the forward.  Keep at it, Brenda.  Not only are you one amazing author, you're a woman with passion and heart. 
         Now enjoy.
         With warmest wishes,
         Debbie Macomber

You’d Better Watch Yourself, Katie Kat

Katie Archer knows how to lie. After six years, no one really knows what happened That Night. Not even her twin sister. Choosing a college 3,000 miles away from the truth, Katie throws herself into art classes and a love affair with ice cream. Katie’s biggest rule? No boys. Ever.

But there is the little problem of Lucas Matthews. Former basketball star and total campus hottie, Lucas is the stuff girls have naughty dreams about—and he has the reputation to prove it! But that doesn’t stop liquid heat from running through Katie’s veins every time she sees him…

You’ll Never Get Away With It

Letting Lucas in is the hardest thing Katie’s ever had to do. And telling him the truth? Impossible. Then Katie starts to get threatening texts and she realizes Lucas is the least of her problems. Her past has caught up with her and it wants to settle the score.
I’m Coming For You

Now Katie must decide whether she wants to fight for her life, or leave everything—including Lucas—behind her forever...

 When i sat down to read Put Me Back Together, i expected your typical YA book but having read some of Lola Rooney previous books i knew the best option would be my own.
The dynamics of Put Me Back Together start off like the general girl meets bad boy but once the new dimension of the book happens it takes on a new life of its own. Katie grows throughout the book, though the psycho stalkers obsession is scary and makes me now look over my should a little more its unfortunately more common than not. Disturbing but real, i love books that give you a dimension of whats a typical reaction.
Enjoyed the dynamics of the heroine Katie and the realness of holding the ruff truth in for years.
Good book would recommend to check this out!

I took fistfuls of his black, long-sleeved, cotton shirt, pulling him as close as I could get him.  I wrapped my legs around his waist and began to kiss as passionately and roughly as I ever had.  I was hungry to taste him again, to feel him again, to simply love him again.
Right then, everything melted away—the fact that we were in the middle of nowhere in a gas station, that I was supposed to hate his guts, that he had a Hyde side of him that was evil and tortured.  In that moment, we were simply us—desperately and madly us.
Walker slowly shoved my jacket from my shoulders and tossed it on the metal chair next to us.  Panting and gripping the hem of my shirt, he pulled away to look in my eyes. “Mags? Are you sure about this.”
I kissed him softly on the cheek. “Let’s just not think for little. Please.”
He nodded and pulled my hips hard into his, letting me feel how ready his body was for me.  I pulled his shirt up over his head, revealing all the gorgeous artwork that covered his chest, shoulders, and arms.  I traced my finger tips from the start of his wrist, following the flow of the inked lines until my fingers were stroking his rigid abs just over his belt buckle.  Walker’s breathing was heavy as he watched me take in the manly beauty before me. Slowly, I started to kiss from his collarbone to his jaw, finally finding his soft, desperate lips.

Finding Spencer by Kimberly Knight

Finding Spencer (B&S 1.5)
Release Date: April 28, 2014
Cover Model: Dave Santa Lucia
Cover Model: Rachael Baltes
Lingerie Provided By: Queen of Diamonds Clothing CO
Photographer: E. Marie Photography

With a crazy ex-girlfriend who won’t leave him alone, Brandon Montgomery is determined to move on to the brunette hottie who caught his eye at the gym he owns. Things start out slowly with Brandon and Spencer, since neither one can find the courage to speak to one another until they both happen to be in Vegas for a weekend.

It’s not true. Things don’t always stay in Vegas, and lucky for Brandon, the girl he wants to be with lives in his town. Now if his crazy ex-girlfriend, Christy, would leave him alone, Brandon could move on to where he needs to be.

Brandon and Spencer’s story is already written. You know Spencer’s side of it. Now find out what Brandon was really thinking from the moment Spencer walked into Club 24.

Chapter #1
Do you ever think to yourself that something’s gotta give?
I’m a successful business man, but my love life is the worst it has ever been. I’m dating this chick who I have nothing in common with, and every time I try to end things, she sneaks her way back in, and we have lousy make-up sex.
I’m pretty sure she’s bipolar and hasn’t been diagnosed, yet. One minute we’re watching some drama reality show—not my choice—and the next, she’s accusing me of cheating on her. It’s like a broken record, and I’m tired of hearing it.
“Baby, where are we having dinner tonight?” Christy, my soon-to-be ex-again, asked.
“Can’t. Have to work—late.”
I’ve resorted to short, incomplete sentences with her. No matter what I’ve said, she’s turned it around and tried to get me to do whatever she wanted. I could probably speak Japanese and she would pretend I said that I wanted to marry her instead of break up with her. I needed a plan to get her out of my life forever—and fast!
“You always have to work late now. I thought you wanted to spend more time with me?” Christy pouted, sticking out her bottom lip.
Spend more time with her? What the fuck? Hell no! I was lucky I’d never given her a key or she would be over at my place every night. She was only at my place now because I was horny as fuck and gave in to her temptation—again. I would always give into her because work was stressful, and I needed the release.
“Jason and I are busy. We’re trying to open the new gym, you know that.”
That was just an excuse. Yes, Jason and I were opening a new gym, but most of our business dealings were during normal business hours, and if I saw an email after hours, then I answered it on my phone or from home. I could usually get out of work by six at night, but I was just trying to get away from Christy and I didn’t know how else to do it. I didn’t want to move. I loved my condo, but moving might be the only option.
I didn’t like her anymore. She wasn’t really my type. I’ve always had a thing for brunettes, and Christy was blonde and so fucking high maintenance, I wanted to shoot myself. I loved the outdoors, sports, poker—Christy hated them all.
“Fine, I’ll come over tonight when you get home.”
“Christy, please. I need a night alone.”
“What the fuck, Brandon? Why are you being an asshole?”
“I’m not being an asshole. I just need some space.”
“Are you breaking up with me? Are you cheating on me?”
The first time Christy asked if I was breaking up with her, I made the mistake of saying “yes”. I’m not going to make that mistake again. Her nails hurt!
“I’m not cheating on you. I just need a night alone. Go hang out with your friends. You know Mondays are busy for me.”
“Fine, but I want you all to myself this weekend since you’re going to Vegas next weekend,” she said, coming up to give me a kiss.
Every ounce of me tried not to shudder under her touch. What was I doing? I couldn’t stand to be touched by her, but at night I gave in to her come-ons?
I was certain God was looking out for me when I asked Christy if she wanted to go to Vegas with us for my buddy’s birthday party a few weeks back. Christy only wanted to come if we were going clubbing. I told her we were playing poker; she turned her nose up and pouted for hours, and then accused me of cheating on her—in the future. That should have been my sign to get the fuck out, but I don’t listen sometimes. Christy has been nothing but trouble for me.
I didn’t respond to her about coming over for the weekend. I wasn’t going to make any promises. I needed to talk to Becca, one of my best friends, and ask her how I was going to get rid of Christy—for good.
“What’s wrong with you?” Jason, my best friend, asked as he leaned into my office.
“Christy…” I groaned.
“I thought you were dumping her?”
“I tried—again.”
Jason sat in the chair in front of my desk. We had been friends since college. He met his wife, Becca, at Texas A&M where we all attended, and the three of us had been friends ever since. We were business partners now; I was the Best Man at their wedding and lived with them when we first moved to San Francisco.
They’ve been through all my ups and downs, especially in college when some asshole started a fight with me and Jason and broke my back because our football coach named me starting quarterback and not him. Jason and Becca were more than friends—they were like my brother and sister.
“What happened this time?” Jason asked, crossing his arms over his chest.
“When I told her that I was done, she cried and wouldn’t leave my place.”
“Dump her at her place.”
“I tried,” I said, burying my head in my hands. “She just follows me home and then begs and begs—promising all these sexual acts that she ends up not doing.”
Jason busted out laughing. “Oh man, that’s good!”
“Fuck you!” I said, throwing my pen at him.
“What’s so funny in here?” Becca asked, walking into my office.
“Brandon can’t get rid of Christy,” Jason told his wife.
I gave Becca a brief rundown of my obsessed girlfriend while she and Jason laughed at me. It kinda sucks being single sometimes. I’ve always wished I had what they had, but I haven’t been so lucky. I was close once, but then found out the girl cheated on me one drunken night, and since then I’ve guarded my heart.
I’ve only been dating Christy a few months. I don’t love her. Never have. I’m not even sure what attracted me to her. She’s not my type. I want a girl that is down to earth, loves sports, doesn’t care if I go mountain biking with Jason every weekend and wants me for me and not for my money or a free gym membership.
You would think that I have women fawning all over me. I’m so busy with work, that I haven’t had time to go out and meet anyone new. It was easy for me to call Christy, get off like I needed, but it has come to the point where she made my skin crawl.
I met her at a bar one night. Maybe it was the way she rubbed her ass on my dick that made me want to fuck her that night—yep, that was it—but since then, I haven’t gotten rid of her.
“Maybe it’s time to get a restraining order?” Becca asked.
“Or move back to Austin,” Jason said.
“I’m not moving back to Texas. I like it here. Plus, the Giants are way better than the Astros.”
“But they have our Cowboys,” Jason said while Becca was looking at her phone.
“You want me to run our Austin gym again?” I asked.
We currently have four gyms. One in Austin, one in Houston, one in Denver and the one here in San Francisco. In January, we hope to open a new one in Seattle. The current property is in foreclosure, and our real estate guy, Paul, was working his magic to get us a good deal. Everything is included in the sale since it’s currently a gym, so we won’t have to spend a lot of time setting everything up. We will just need to add our signature touches like a spa, beach volleyball and basketball courts, with our operating hours extending to be twenty-four hours a day.
“You’re not going back to Texas,” Becca said. “This is what you do. You tell your door guy to not let her in…”
“Done that,” I said, cutting her off. “But somehow she gets in.”
“You tell them that if they see her on the property, then to call the cops. You tell Christy that, too. Tell her if she shows up again, the cops will be called and you’ll be getting a restraining order.”
“That’s so harsh,” I said.
“It’s either that or her sleeping in front of your door every night.”
“Why do I always have to find the crazies?”
“Your luck will change, B. You just need to get Christy out of the picture and let that special someone into your life,” Becca said, patting my shoulder to comfort me.
Christy: What time are you getting off?
Jesus, fucking Christ! Didn’t we have this conversation this morning? I’m not answering her.
And I didn’t.
She texted again.
Christy: I miss you already. I can’t go a night without you.
I groaned, throwing my phone on my desk and continued working.
Christy: Why aren’t you answering me? You better not be cheating on me. I’ll hunt that bitch down!
I decided to text her back. My luck, she would show up at the gym and cause a big scene. Couldn’t have our clients seeing that shit.
Me: I’m not cheating on you. I’m at work. BUSY!
Christy: I’ll be at your place tonight at 10.
Why do I seriously find the clingiest women in the world? Fucking hell!
Me: Might not be home.
Christy: I’ll come by the gym.
Me: Might not be at the gym, either.
Christy: So you ARE cheating on me?
Me: Christy, I have friends…not just you. And no, for the last time, I’m not cheating on you. I have a meeting.
I didn’t hear back from Christy. I already knew that she would be at my place when I got home. I needed to be a fucking man and just break up with her for good. I needed to listen to my head and my heart—not my dick.
At five-thirty, Jason stuck his head in my office. “Going home.”
“I’m doing it. Breaking up with Christy for good tonight.”
“Right…” Jason said with a laugh.
“How is it out there? I think I need to burn off some pent-up energy so I don’t agree to let her suck my dick.”
Being a fairly new gym in the area, Jason and I created two-week trial passes. We expected a lot of the after work crowd to show—and they had been for the last few weeks. Each Monday seemed to bring out more people trying to start their week off right.
“Fairly busy, but not full.”
We stepped out of my office that overlooked the floor. I scanned the area, seeing people taking advantage of our smoothie bar, standing in line for racquetball and enjoying our equipment and weights.
“Nice. I’m going to work out.”
Usually we don’t work out when it’s busy, but I needed to really get my head screwed on straight. A good run always cleared my head.
Running, not sex Brandon!
As I continued to look over the floor, my eyes drifted to the treadmills to see if any were open. That was when I saw her.
“Have you seen her before?” I asked Jason.
“Her.” I pointed to the brunette I’d never seen before, running on the treadmill.
“No, never seen her before. Why?”
“Because—I’m going to marry her,” I said, walking away and not waiting for him to respond.

Sweet Temptation by K.C. Lynn

Title: Sweet Temptation (Men of Honor, #2)
Author: K.C. Lynn
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Expected Release Date: May 1, 2014

“If you could go back and change one moment in your life what would it be?” I expect him to say the week the three of them were held prisoner, but what he says next is something that I will remember for the rest of my life.

“It would be to find you sooner, because I would have never let anyone hurt you.”

And that was the moment I gave Sawyer Evans my whole heart.


At 17 years old Grace Morgan had managed to live through what would be the worst day of her life. One would think this is where her torment ended, but then she was sent to live with him- the devil himself.

Three years later she finds herself in the beautiful, small town of Sunset Bay, South Carolina - a perfect place to start her life over. This is where she meets the best friends she will ever have, and one cocky, sexy, arrogant ex-Navy Seal whose heart turns out to be bigger than his ego. Right when things start looking up the worst day of her life comes back with a vengeance; ruining the peace she had just found.

Sawyer Evans is a strong, sexy, confident ex-Navy Seal who loves women just as much as they love him. His philosophy is: the more the merrier, with no strings attached. But all that changes the day he rolls into Sunset Bay, where he meets a sweet, sexy blonde with sad amber eyes, who smells like cupcakes and bakes the most delicious pies. The only girl who isn’t affected by his good looks and charm...or so he thinks. 

But Sawyer is a fighter who is used to getting what he wants, and he wants Grace. Along the way of making that happen, he finds out she holds secrets, and a pain much deeper than he thought possible- and he has known pain like no other man has. 

A year ago he made a life-altering decision that not only bought him a week in hell with men he considers his brothers, but also ended his career. It was a decision he will never regret, no matter the scars he bares, physically or emotionally. He refused to let that moment in his life break him or define him.

So when Grace’s life is threatened, he will make another decision, one to not only protect her, but also mend her broken heart.

This is where she met some of the best friends she will ever have and one in particular who will forever hold her heart. 

Jaxson Reid is your typical tattooed bad boy. His past and soul is as dark as the tattoos he bares. He flies through life and girls with no attachments and no emotions... until he met her. 

One fateful night brought Julia and Jaxson together. They formed a friendship and a bond so strong it was unbreakable. Jaxson fought the temptation of anything more with Julia because he knew he would never be good enough for her. When he found his control slipping he left the one girl, who meant everything to him, to join the Navy. 

But one passion-filled night has Jaxson letting go of fighting temptation which will forever alter their relationship. 

A few years later Jaxson comes home to make things right with the one girl who’s ever meant anything to him. Except someone isn’t happy that Jaxson has returned. Someone who thinks Julia is theirs and they will stop at nothing to make sure it stays that way... forever. 

Now Jaxson will not only fight to protect Julia but will also battle the new and existing demons that haunt his soul.
