Book Blitz & Giveaway: Vic Vaughn is Vicious by J.A. Huss!


   “Wanna go out there?” he asks me.
   I don’t know what to say. I mean, not particularly. I don’t want to go out there. I want to stay in here with him.
   I want to study every inch of this room.
   I want to know this man.
   Turning away from the open doors, I shake my head a little and once again concentrate on all the things in this space that give away hints to who and what he is.
   The bed is just a mattress set on top of stacks of wooden pallets. It’s not made. But that just makes it more interesting, not less. His sheets and pillowcases are light gray satin, but his comforter is a dark gray luxurious velvet. I can only imagine what it feels like to sleep in his bed with those two contrasting textures on either side of your body.
   Then I picture what it would feel like to lie next to him in that bed. To be his.
   I let out a breath and allow my eyes to wander up the wall where there are more framed pictures. Magazine covers. Tattoo magazine covers, specifically.
   And his face.
   Vic Vaughn is Vicious, the cover in the center reads.
   He’s standing next to me and I cannot stop the quick rotation of my head in his direction as I realize just who I am with. “You’re… him.”
   “Him?” He smiles coyly. Then he nods his chin at the magazine covers. “I’m him. Wanna run away now?”
   I shake my head, then whisper, “Not a chance.”
   He closes the short distance between us, slipping behind me. And when his lips lower down to the exposed skin on the back of my neck, I have to suck in a breath and try my best not to shiver. His fingertips slide up my arms and then he slips them back down, taking my coat along for the ride. I turn to face him just as he slips his jacket off too. Then he walks over to a large, open closet and hangs them both on wooden hangers.
   I don’t know why this simple act makes me tingle all over, but it does.
   And he knows it does. I can tell by the way he’s looking at me.
   “How old are you?” I ask.
   “Way too old for you. What about you? Wanna admit to it?”
   Not sure if I do. But I say it anyway. “Nineteen. Do you want me to leave now?”
   “I think I want you to stay forever.”

My name is Vicious. God-given name, I cross my heart.

And it fits.

I’m a hot-as-f, inked-up tattoo artist at the trendiest shop in the Rocky Mountains.

I have the looks, I have the bike, I have the reputation.

That means I get the ladies.

Sure. There are lots of women out there who hate tattoos. Wouldn’t be caught dead with guys like me. And that’s fine. I’m not looking for girls like that.

I’m looking for that other kind of girl.

The wild one, the bad one, the crazy one.

Funny thing is… the one I fell for isn’t that girl.

She’s the Good Girl.

And maybe back when she was nineteen I came off as a ‘maybe’, but after seven years of distance I am now the definition of ‘not a keeper’.

But I can be a keeper.

I can make the good girl swoon.

I can be the dream guy she never saw coming.

If she would just… not press charges… I’m pretty sure I can turn this whole relationship around.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Ruined Sinner [Hellfire Club 04] by Becker Gray!

It’s no secret that I hate Phineas Yates, but what most people don’t know is that I have a very good reason why. One hot summer, he broke my heart in the worst way, and I promised myself then and there that I would never fall prey to the sinner of Pembroke Prep again. Even if it meant re-inventing myself into a girl I barely recognized.

There is a fine line between duty and desire.

I’m not just any girl, I’m a princess. When my family begs me to get engaged to save the family name, I’m trapped with no way out. In a panic, I blurt out the ultimate lie and create myself a fake boyfriend. Which means I need someone to foot the bill immediately.

The problem? The only person willing to help me is the one person I never want to see again: the careless, heartless, hot-as-Hellfire playboy himself.

Phineas Yates.

The even bigger problem? His help doesn’t come for free. And this sinner won’t be satisfied with anything less than my absolute ruin.

Becker Gray is the brainchild of two best friends who love rich boys in peacoats. The Hellfire Club is their first series together.

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Rush [Trojan‌ 04] by S.M. West!

Rush – noun: a surging of emotion

My life is falling apart.
Fired from my job.
Blacklisted across NYC.
At odds with my mother.
The only thing good I have to hold on to is the memory of my steamy one-night stand.

Only I had no idea who Eli was…
Or that I’d end up working on his movie set.
The spark between us threatens to reignite every time we’re near each other.

But Eli wants more than just hot sex.
He has a daughter and wants a partner in life.
I’m seeking answers about my past and trying to plan my future.
Commitment is the last thing I want.

Yet, I’m unable to resist his pull and his passion.
His touch eases the turmoil in my life.
His kiss takes me to another place.
And the more time I spend with him and his daughter,
the harder it becomes to break away.

Though when forced to choose between Eli or a chance at a fresh start,
I’m not sure I can risk it all for love.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Crooked Crows [Boys of Briar Hall 01] by Elena Lawson!

Unapologetically f*cked up. Heartlessly cruel. Broken beyond repair.

Corvus, Rook, and Grey – The Crows.

Bred in a world of gang wars, violence, and secrets, they rule the bloody town of Thorn Valley and all the people in it…too bad for me I’ve never been good at kissing ass or keeping quiet.

Even if their savage spirits awaken something inside of me I thought was long dead, I can’t break. I won’t.

They think they scare me, that I’ll run and hide, but the joke’s on them. The Crows aren’t the first monsters I’ve faced, and they won’t be the last. There are worse evils out there waiting to take their stab at Ava Jade Mason.

I say let them try. I’m tired of running. Tired of holding back my darkness. Thorn Valley isn’t ready for a new boogie man. Too bad I’m already here.

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: A Castle of Ash [Tempest of Shadows 04] by Jane Washington!

“This world has fallen to sickness and shadow. It has bound my hands and blinded me, picking away at the things I love until even my conscience has slipped off to some forlorn cage within my mind, locked away as a traitor. I once feared the storm inside me. Now I would give anything to have it back.”

To prove the purity of my soul, I sacrificed everything. I lost my magic, my best friend, and tied myself to the five kings of the afterworld in unholy matrimony. Now, every day is torture at their hands. I am their final hope, a perfect weapon to wield in the ultimate war still looming ahead of us. They will push me as far as it takes, no matter what.

Every day, I give a little more of myself away, and they’re snapping up each piece as though they have a right.

Every day, the Darkness takes another victim, picking off people all around me until those of us who fight for light and life are outnumbered in a world we’re no longer sure is our own.

The end is drawing near, but the closer it gets, the more impossible our victory seems.

Even after everything I’ve sacrificed … I fear it won’t be enough.

Roman Avdonin has always lived life on the edge of reason—hiding an unstable woman while officials knock down his family’s door and a mafia war brews really doesn’t seem that crazy, all things considered.

But everything about Karine Yazov is a beautiful, dangerous lie. And they’ve not even learned the worst of it.

All she knows is how to survive, and put into the hands of a man who seems like her wildest dreams, why would she fight? His stare lights her on fire, he gives her the safety she craves, and Karine can’t stop herself from falling …

Even if she knows the monster chasing her will never let her go.

Promises like his shouldn’t be broken, but secrets like hers could get them all killed.
