Tempting The Bodyguard


A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

He can protect her from everyone except himself.

Alana Gore is in danger. A take-no-prisoners publicist, her way with people has made her more than a few enemies over the years, but a creepy stalker is an entirely different matter. She needs a bodyguard, and the only man she can ask is not only ridiculously hot, but reputed to have taste for women that goes beyond adventurous.

Chandler Gamble has one rule: don’t protect anyone you want to screw. But with Alana, he’s caught between his job and his increasingly hard libido. On one hand, Alana needs his help. On the other, Chandler wants nothing more than to take the hot volcano of a woman in hand. To make her writhe in pleasure, until she’s at his complete mercy.

She needs protection. He needs satisfaction. And the moment the line is crossed, all hell will break loose…

Happy Book Birthday: Wish You Were Italian by Kristin Rae

HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY to Kristin Rae’s debut


I’m really excited to share my review for Kristin Rae’s debut WISH YOU WERE ITALIAN! I met Kristin last year at Austin Teen Book Festival and have kept in touch with her. I now consider her a very sweet friend and I’m ecstatic that the world is now going to get to read this adorable story.



BY:                              Kristin Rae

PUBLISHED BY:        Bloomsbury

RELEASE DATE:       May 6, 2014

SOURCE:                    Net Galley

Synopsis 4



Pippa has always wanted to go to Italy … but not by herself. And certainly not to sit in art school the entire summer learning about dead guys’ paintings. When she steps off the plane in Rome, she realizes that traveling solo gives her the freedom to do whatever she wants. So it’s arrivederci, boring art program and ciao, hot Italian guys!

Charming, daring, and romantic, Bruno is just the Italian Pippa’s looking for—except she keeps running into cute American archeology student Darren everywhere she goes. Pippa may be determined to fall in love with an Italian guy … but the electricity she feels with Darren says her heart might have other plans. Can Pippa figure out her feelings before her parents discover she left the program and—even worse—she loses her chance at love?


My Thoughts



Have you read a book that immediately makes you want to go on an adventure? To explore new places? To make new friends? I felt all these things and more when I read WISH YOU WERE ITALIAN! The descriptions of the beautiful destinations made me want to jump on a plane to Italy. It is obvious Kristin Rae has a love for Italy and that she’s definitely seen all the destinations she so beautifully describes. I thought Pippa was sweet and brave. On her adventures, she makes wonderful friends, takes LOTS of pictures, eats GELATO and meets two swoony boys. What more could you want?!?

WISH YOU WERE ITALIAN is an adorable story! You’ll love it. It is delightful and sweet just like the GELATO Pippa loves to eat!

Release Day Blitz: The Resistance by S.L. Scott

Happy Book Birthday to Texas author, S.L. Scott!



You don’t choose when.


You don’t choose where.


And you don’t get to choose who you fall in love with.


The minute he opened his sexy mouth, Holliday Hughes should have known Jack Dalton was trouble. His smooth pickup lines, broad shoulders, and ridiculously handsome face charmed her right out of her clothes. She gave into her desires, the instant attraction blinding her to the obvious.


One night. That was all it took for Holliday’s world to be flipped on its axis. Jack Dalton was cocky. Smug. Volatile. Demanding. He ignited something deep inside her like no other, but there was something more to this brooding bad boy. There was a dark side to him she couldn’t help but be drawn to.


Torn between what she knew about him and a mysterious side he tried to hide, could she walk away or was he simply too hard to resist?




The Resistance is a fun, sexy read that you don’t want to miss!  This book
pulled me in from the first sentence, and I couldn’t put it down.  Jack
Dalton is hot, and Holli is just the type of protagonist that I like to root for.”
~R.K. Lilley, New York Times and USA Today Best Selling Author


“The Resistance is a unique and refreshingly sexy twist on the usual Rock Star
Romance. If you love hot sex, rock stars, and a heroine who is strong and
capable, this one is for you!”
~Lisa, Rock Stars of Romance


“5 Stars – another must read from S. L. Scott, who continues to wow me with her
ability to suck me into a story and make me feel that I’m standing on the
outside watching everything unfold.”

Whispering Wishes
Jennifer Miller


Release Date:
May 28, 2014
Be careful what you wish for…
Normally, Aspen Edwards will do
anything for her free-spirited best friend, Mischa, but this feels like a bit
much. The plan is simple, all Aspen has to do is write down a few affirmations
and recite them during the New Moon. But as skeptical as Aspen is, a promise is
a promise. So, she whispers each wish to the universe, pondering the
possibilities of “what if.” Who wouldn’t want a promotion at work, a
new home, or to become an irresistible sex goddess?
But Aspen’s luck doesn’t change
with the wishes, or the wind. Each of her whispered prayers produces disaster.
She gets fired. Her car breaks down. She gets kicked out of her house. And of
course there is the crap icing on the cake of doom, falling for flirtatious and
sexy, Wes, who sees her as nothing more than his “little sis”. It might not be
so bad if his house weren’t the only place she had to go.
Unbeknownst to her, the universe
has a few tricks up its sleeve, and Aspen’s bad luck streak might just be
putting her right where she needs to be!


Jennifer Miller was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, but now calls Arizona
home. Jennifer’s love of reading began when she was a small child, and only
continued to grow as she entered adulthood. Ever since winning a writing
contest at the young age of nine, when she wrote a book about a girl with a pet
unicorn, she’s dreamed of writing a book of her own. Quickly learning that
dreams don’t just fall into your lap, she knew she had to chase them herself
and not be afraid to dream a little bigger. Most importantly, she is a wife and
mother, and is very lucky to have a family that loves and supports her in all
things. She also has an unhealthy addiction to handbags and chocolate covered
strawberries, neither of which she cares to change. For more information about

Character Blitz: A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers


Today is the character dream cast blitz post for the A LITTLE TOO FAR series by Lisa Desrochers. Three groups of bloggers will be posting dream casts from one of the books in the series. Be sure to check out each group to see how each story is connected and which characters can be found in one of the other books.



This blog is featuring the dream cast from A LITTLE TOO FAR.


Character Casting



We meet most of the key characters for the A LITTLE TOO series in book one, A LITTLE TOO FAR. Lexie Banks and her stepbrother, Trent Sorenson, are two of three main characters. They are super close—more best friends than siblings—but things go a little too far one night and they take their relationship to a whole new (and very forbidden) level.


I see Keira Knightly as Lexie.



Lexie points out that Trent looks a lot like Channing Tatum, so I think I’ll stick with her pick.


Lexie is terrified she’s traded her best friend for one night of mind-blowing passion, and she and Trent don’t really have a chance to clear the air, because she leaves two days later for a year abroad in Rome.


While there, she is racked by guilt over what happened with Trent, and raised a good Catholic, decides to go to church to confess. There, she literally runs into Alessando Moretti, a transitional deacon only a few months away from becoming a priest, who has already taken his vow of celibacy.


Eduardo Verastegui is my perfect Alessandro


As part of her penance, she’s required to help Alessandro with his mission teaching school children about art. Over her months in Rome they grow closer, and Lexie tries to deny her attraction to Alessandro. But then she discovers Trent has started dating her best friend from home, Samantha West.


Amber Sky Noyes could definitely pull off Sam.


Sam has always had a thing for Trent, and Lexie wants to be happy for them, but she is also miserable, because she comes to the realization she’s in love with her stepbrother. And when Alessandro’s signals start to change Lexie finds herself undeniably draw to him.


So Lexie has a choice to make: tell Trent how she feels knowing it could destroy their family, or give into her feelings for Alessandro and ruin his life.


You can guess that both men don’t get their happy ending. In A LITTLE TOO MUCH, the get to see what happens to the boy who doesn’t end up with Lexie. And Lexie, Trent, and Alessandro all make an appearance again in Sam’s story, A LITTLE TOO HOT (book 3 in the A LITTLE TOO series).



ALTFARBOOK SUMMARY: Have you ever gone just a little too far?

Lexie Banks has.

Yep. She just had mind-blowing sex with her stepbrother. In her defense, she was on the rebound, and it’s more of a my-dad-happened-to-marry-a-woman-with-a-super-hot-son situation. But still, he’s been her best friend and confidant for the better part of the last few years … and is so off limits. It’s a good thing she’s leaving in two days for a year abroad in Rome.

But even thousands of miles away, Lexie can’t seem to escape trouble. Raised Catholic, she goes to confession in hopes of alleviating some of her guilt … and maybe not burning in hell. Instead, she stumbles out of the confessional and right into Alessandro Moretti, a young and very easy-on-the-eyes deacon … only eight months away from becoming a priest. Lexie and Alessandro grow closer, and when Alessandro’s signals start changing despite his vow of celibacy, she doesn’t know what to think. She’s torn between falling in love with the man she shouldn’t want and the man she can’t have. And she isn’t sure how she can live with herself either way.
