"Charming, witty, and fun. There's no better read. I enjoyed every word!" --- Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author on No Better Man

STOP RUNNING . . .AND START FALLING

For Ruby James the Walker Mountain Ranch is her safe haven. Here in Aspen, Colorado, she can finally build a quiet life for herself without fear of her old one rearing its ugly head. Or so Ruby thinks. Any single woman would be happy to indulge a tall, dark, and curious cop-but the closer Ruby gets to him, the closer she gets to losing her newfound peace.

Police officer Sawyer Hawkins is no stranger to secrets. He's ready to leave town for good until a security threat brings him back to Walker Ranch, and Ruby's gorgeous green eyes soon have him second-guessing his decision to go. Her kindness and quiet strength awaken feelings he'd thought long buried, even as her reluctance to talk about her past worries him. The cop in Sawyer only wants the truth-but the man in him wants Ruby in his arms forever . . . 









“Sawyer…” There was so much she couldn’t tell him. So many reasons she should ask him to leave, to leave her alone. But the ache tightening inside of her would never go away if she didn’t touch him, if she didn’t feel the generous hunger of his lips against hers, the thrilling sensation of his hands reading every curve of her body. So instead of saying anything, instead of casting him out of her life, she scooted to her knees so she could reach his lips, first touching them lightly with her fingers. “You’re a good man, Sawyer Hawkins,” she whispered. And though she knew he couldn’t have her forever, she could give herself to him now. He could have her for this one moment.
His gaze fused with hers, the mesmerizing blue of his eyes smoldering like the center of a flame. His large hands settled on her hips and tugged them until she straddled him.
The swing pitched forward and she wrapped her arms around his neck to keep from losing her balance.
“This isn’t why I came here,” he informed her hoarsely.
“That’s disappointing,” she breathed against his neck. The stubble made her lips tingle.
Sawyer sighed in a helplessly delicious way and took her chin in his hand, bringing her lips to meet his, brushing them lightly in teasing preview.
Oh, lordy, lordy, lordy…the man could kiss.
He pulled back to look at her, but what good was that? She wanted to feel him against her, solid and safe and warm. So she wrapped her legs all the way around his waist cinching them tighter until the hard bulge of his desire for her pulsed between her legs. It was blinding the way he made her lungs pound, the way he sent her dizzy heart twirling in circles. His touch brought her somewhere else, made her feel like someone else. Someone whole and unbreakable. The person she’d always wanted to be.


5 Stars

Let me start by saying this is my first read by Sara Richardson, but it definitely will not be my last, I think I have to go and purchased the other two books in this series Heart of the Rockies to read about Ben & Paige & Bryce & Avery.  This was such a touching book, I just feel in love with both Sawyer & Ruby, they both have to learn to trust again after their disaster relationships before they meet but Ruby the most. Even though  Sawyer knew Ruby was hiding something from him, his family & friends it didn't stop him caring about her & wanting her to trust him with her secret. I loved how everyone at the Walker Ranch made Ruby feel like she finally had a family which she never had. This was such a sweet heartwarming story I just could not put down, it was my kind of book the ones that can have you laughing & the next you find a tear rolling down you face. Sara Richardson you just earned another fan!! Thank you Tasty Book Tours for giving me this opportunity to read & review another fabulous book.

SNEAK PEEK:
Every word is a whisper across my lips. I want him to kiss me so bad. I even start to chant it like a mantra. Repeating the words over and over in my head. kiss me . . . kiss me . . . kiss me. . . All it would take is a small tilt of my head. The closer he gets to the end of the song the more desperate I become. F*ck it! I tilt my head up unable to resist any longer and bring his juicy bottom lip into my mouth. I gently suck and he releases a moan that I feel vibrate throughout every inch of my body. His right hand slides up the back of my neck and he fists a handful of my hair. He gently pulls away and holds my stare, his golden brown eyes to my hazel green. His breath is coming out in quick pants. He looks like he’s fighting himself to make a decision. I’m blinking quickly, saying a silent prayer that he doesn’t make the wrong one.

Release Blitz: Stripped by Allie Juliette Mousseau

Title: Stripped
Author: Allie Juliette Mousseau
Genre: Romantic Comedy Standalone
Release Date: March 29, 2016 
Stone Wright is Foreplay’s hottest act. While entertaining at the popular L.A. strip club known for catering to the feminine wild, the fever-inducing Aussie with the sex-saturated accent and moves to match is preparing for the audition of a lifetime on the sensational hit reality show Then Prove You Can Dance.
When retired principal dancer and ballerina Emilie Cartier stumbles into his dressing room, she’s still reeling from the one wrong spin that altered her entire life and obliterated her dreams.
After a humiliating public, albeit meteoric, orgasm—the kind so desperate to escape, it took over her body without her brain's permission—and a second, more intimate and deliriously deliberate one, Emilie makes a deal with Stone: he helps her get her dancing mojo back and she readies him for his national audition.
But she insists he keeps his wily, wandering hands to himself and his dirty mouth shut. Of course, that’s going to be an extremely hard challenge—one of herculean proportions.
Emilie is not prepared for Stone—the way he spins her mind dizzy, rocks her body into sweet oblivion or dirty dances into her every daydream—and falling in love with him is so definitely not an option.
The closer Stone gets to Emilie, the more he realizes he’d do anything to make her his own. Problem is, he’s a real f*ck-up with relationships. And that means he’s dangerously close to becoming her next major f*ck-up.
What happens when all of the emotional layers—along with the stage props, their dancewear and every last shred of their clothes—are ultimately stripped?

Allie Juliette Mousseau is a USA Today Bestselling Author. She can always be found writing, playing in puddles with her children, hiking with her husband, or adventuring somewhere in the world. Her favorite place to write on warm days is outdoors, but when the weather gets too cold, she'll be inside at her desk inspired by the mountain view from her home office in Montana where she lives with her loving husband, children, and golden retriever. She loves to travel and lived for three years in her RV with her family while visiting the national parks and forests of the U.S. and a couple Canadian provinces. She is excited to add all of Canada and Alaska in the near future!

Pre-Release Blitz w/Giveaway: I Am Shelby James by Brooke Lee

Title: I Am Shelby James 
Series: Beauty in the Darkness
Author: Brooke Lee
Genre: Erotica - LGBT - F/F - M/F - Poetry
Release Date: April 1, 2016 
I am Shelby James – self-loathing poet and artist, daughter, sister, best friend, and bisexual commitment-phobe. My life has been a lackluster existence. The only constant bright spot in my life is my best friend, my soul-mate, Veronica “Roni” Monroe.
For years, I have given into my lust for both men and women, but now, at the age of thirty-two, I realize I need more than a just good booty call.
I need more.
While on my search for “more”, I find much more than I bargained for. This time, giving into my urges may destroy everything good in my life.
Follow me on my journey to find my happiness. To find the real me. To find the beauty in the darkness.

***Warning: This excerpt contains graphic language and scenes of a highly sexual nature.
Roni just smiles and nods. I think I have satisfied her quizzical nature, so now on to spicier topics — her night with Kyle, first and foremost.
I query, “You look like you are about to burst at the seams. Are you going to share your details? Inquiring minds want to know.”
She’s as excited as a schoolgirl talking about her first date and it’s kind of cute, but extremely annoying at the same time.
“You saw us at the beach!  He was sooo good, Shel. I mean, he really knows how to work his tool and apparently my body.” She takes another bite of her prosciutto and mozzarella, before taking a sip of wine.
I can feel the smirk form on my lips, “Fuck, I knew you were working it for our benefit. You are such a fucking tease.” I laugh and take a sip of my wine before commenting, “You two were killing me. Riley got so hard and hot that he stripped and took a dip in the water while I sat there watching him and listening to you get fucked. I couldn’t take it. I had to, um, never mind.”
“Don’t never mind me. You what?” Roni asks as she swats at my arms in a fit of irritation.
With a bit of embarrassment, I admit, “You guys fucking worked me into a frenzy. And I uh, yeah, I played with myself as I watched and listened. It was hot as shit. Then Riley came out of the water, stood watching me and never touched me. Well, he did kiss me, as my fingers were buried deep in my pussy. It. Was. Fucking hot!”
Roni is looking at me with what almost looks like lust in her eyes and says, “Shit, Shelby. That is sexy as hell. Damn, I wish I’d seen that.”
Growing up, Brooke's mother instilled a deep respect for the English language and a love of words. She taught Brooke to read and write and shared her appreciation for poetry. As a teen, poetry became an outlet for Brooke's innermost thoughts and deepest, often times darkest feelings.
In school, teachers always told her "write what you know", so that is what she did. At the not so tender age of forty-three, she started to write her first novel, I Am ShelbyJames (Beauty in the Darkness) and it is what she knows--emotions. 
In her spare time--when she's not writing--you can find Brooke cuddled on the couch with her husband of 20+ years, their fur babies, and a good (often naughty) eBook--unless of course she's having cocktails with her Bestie at one of their favorite haunts.
