Release Blitz: Fool For You by R.C.Martin

Title: Fool For You
Series: Made For Love Series
Author: R.C. Martin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 17, 2016
 
Judah St. Michaels is a man who seeks pleasure, not love. Never love. By rule, satisfaction is guaranteed while in his bed—yet, his women are always dismissed still begging for more. His frequent flyers are few, but variety breeds a challenge on which he thrives, and loneliness is not a burden he shoulders. But when he happens upon an exquisite, little redhead—whose shy demeanor he'd like to shatter in one night of passion—her reluctance to accept his offer changes his game completely. Teddy Fitzpatrick doesn't trust easily. The scars that define her cut deep, and love is a dream she's afraid to chase. When a tall, dark, and gorgeous man enters her world, she knows right away that he's the type to break hearts. Yet, try as she might, his persistence is hard to ignore, and her ability to resist soon dwindles down to nothing. Against her better judgment, she opens her heart, surrendering to the dominate force that he is. But happily-ever-afters are not easy to come by, for assholes aren't born, they're made... And falling in love is a fool's errand. *Series STANDALONE. Written for audiences 18+ years of age, due to language and sexual content.

Judah
I watch her leave, my mind already busy planning my next move. I will have her. The hard-on trying the seam of my pants is proof that she’s a challenge I fully intend to accept. There is something about her—something so soft and innocent. She’s shy. It wasn’t an act, it wasn’t contrived, she wasn’t playing me, and it only makes me want her more. I thought she was breakable before, but now—now I see that she’s more delicate than I anticipated, and I want to see her shatter at my touch.
I want to bury my dick into her cunt, making her wild and desperate for more. I want to see the look in her eyes when I make her come. I want to hear her scream my name, her pleasure breaking through her shy demeanor and unleashing the fiery woman I’d imagine exists under all that innocence.
She may have rejected my invitation, but her body spoke louder than her words. The blush in her cheeks, her shallow breaths, and the look in her eyes when I touched her—fuck.
I clear my throat, shifting my thoughts to the painting in front of me. I have to think of something else, or my cock will never calm down. It takes me a couple minutes, but when I have myself under control, I slide my hands into my pockets before I go looking for Logan. It’s time to get out of here. 
At my approach, she looks away from the man in front of her and scowls at me slightly before offering the man her hand. “Thank you, Geoffrey. It was nice to meet you.” She holds up his card with a smile before she assures him, “We’ll be in touch.” Then, without another word, she makes her way toward the exit, her fine ass swaying as she goes.
I offer Geoffrey a nod before going after her. When we reach my Porsche, I follow her to the passenger side so that I might open her door, but she waves me away. 
“No need to be a gentleman now. I’m fine, Judah.”
I frown at her, ignoring her implication as I reach for the handle anyway. She lifts an eyebrow at me as I stand waiting for her to get in. 
“What did you say to that woman?”
“I don’t see why that’s any of your concern,” I state simply with a shrug. 
She laughs a humorless laugh, folding her arms across her chest before she says, “I’m not stupid. There’s only one reason a woman would walk away from you like that. I have walked away from you like that. What did you say?”
“If I tell you, will you get in the car.” 
She lifts her chin at me defiantly. I take that as my answer.
“I told her I’d like to take her to dinner.”
She arches an eyebrow, silently expressing her doubt while demanding a better explanation.
“Logan—”
“No bullshit, Judah. What did you say?”
I narrow my eyes at her. “Is this us being friends?”
“Yup,” she states, popping the p for emphasis. “Now spill.”
“I offered her full disclosure. Dinner. My company. No strings.”
She rolls her eyes and huffs at me before she finally gets into the car. I close her in, somehow sure that being confined in a small space with the woman is not my best bet right now. Nevertheless, we need to get back to the office. We have work to do. 
As soon as I’m seated in the driver’s seat, she turns toward me, and I know I’m in for an earful. I start the car and back out of the parking space, hoping for green lights all the way to our destination.
I'm a born and bred Coloradan. While I now reside in Virginia, the land of the Rocky Mountains is where I've left a piece of my heart and where my characters come to life. When I'm not writing I'm reading; when I'm not reading I'm writing...you know how it goes! I also enjoy cooking, baking, crocheting, and jigsaw puzzles. Basically, I'm an old soul with a young heart, nonchalantly waiting for my prince to come.

EskieMama Reads Review: No Greater Hell by Jerrie Alexander



No Greater Hell
by Jerrie Alexander





Blurb:

His past is better left forgotten...

Former Army helicopter pilot Jake Donovan is lucky to be alive. At least that's what his team of neurosurgeons said. But he knows differently. Jake's crimes almost cost Holly Hoffman her life, and even though he can't remember, the pain in her eyes is something he'll never forget. 

Holly's done being a victim. As a trauma nurse her skills are needed by a humanitarian group providing medical aid after a killer storm ravages the Gulf Coast of Texas. Saving lives however, wont be an option when a madman wants her dead.

Can Jake and Holly shed the weight of his dark past, or will their happily-ever-after have a fatal ending.


Review:                               5 Stars

Jake and Holly, both of them walked through hell, and I mean hell, each carries scars that don't seem to go away, Jake's are worse than Holly's.
Jake found himself lost after a crash and after leaving the hospital with no memory of who he was, found employment, but not the kind that you would want, in this guise he was responsible for Holly's kidnaping. 
But some part of his old self was still there and surfaced long enough to save her. His friends bandied behind him and got him the help he needed.
Once more reunited, Jake again finds himself protecting Holly and going through more hell than either wants. The plot line kept me glued to it until I finished the story, no more of the plot will I say for am sure there are readers out there that want to read it. 
Its a fantastic book and it will take you and trip of a lifetime.

I wish there was something I could do.” Greyson pulled off his ball cap, ran a hand through his hair, and took a step toward her. “You do?” “Yes,” she said with a giggle. Bree’s gaze followed the path of his hat as he plunked it onto a notepad at the table. He smiled at the way she glanced down at his feet, watching as he took another step closer, and then another. “What do you have in mind?” There went that dimple, sinking right into that rosy cheek of hers. She was helping already. She took a step back. “I don’t have anything in mind.” “Fair enough,” he said, taking one final step. Bree was against the counter now, the light above the nearby table grazing just parts of her lovely face. “I’m thinking of a way you can help right now.” He slipped one hand along her delicate neck, her skin slightly cool and damp from the rain, and caught hints of her floral perfume. She grinned, her gaze darting to the floor before settling back on him. “Hmm.”

EXCERPT

“Don’t you need to go, Holly Jacobs?” Even the way he murmured my name was sexy. This was crazy. Add that to my track record of bad decisions and getting involved with Zack was dumb on an epic level. I was incapable of having a no-strings fling. For me, it was all or nothing, and this time I was going to make the sane decision.
“Why don’t you call me just Holly?” Asking him another question was harmless.
I saw a flash of white teeth in the darkness. “I like your name.” He sounded amused. “Is that okay, Just-Holly?” 
Dear God. In the middle of his grief and distress, he still had a sense of humor. I really needed to escape before I found any more reasons to linger. But I didn’t move an inch.
“You sure you don’t want to come back to my place?” His whisper reverberated through me, turning my spine liquid and my knees to jelly. He shifted position slightly and I felt him trailing a hand up my back, the fingertips tiptoeing with excruciating slowness and precision. 
“Zack, I don’t do one-night stands.” 
“I’m here for two nights.”

Hanging by a Thread
by Jenna Sutton





Blurb:

Thirty-year-old Bebe Banerjee is desperate to get rid of two things: her fiancĂ© and her virginity. Escaping her arranged marriage might be impossible, but she refuses to give her firsts to an entitled jerk who lives on another continent. Instead, she devises a plan that guarantees another man will get her momentous firsts. But she never imagined that man would be Cal O’Brien, the gorgeous heir to the Riley O’Brien & Co. denim empire… 
 
Although Cal has always been fascinated by Bebe’s brilliant mind and beautiful eyes, he’s never pursued her. She can’t stand the sight of him, and every time they’re in the same room, they end up trading insults. Yet when he finds out about Bebe’s bold plan, he makes his move, unaware of her upcoming nuptials. He promises to make her firsts unforgettable, but he doesn’t know how hard it will be to forget her when their arrangement ends.


Review:                          5 Stars

Where do I start, Hanging by a Thread, it was such a wonderful romance. I just fell in love with Cal he was such a sweetheart, he wanted to give Bebe all her firsts & love doing all of it. The chemistry between Cal & Bebe was HOT, HOT, HOT, it made me HOT. The bantering between Cal & Bebe was so delightful you could just see from the beginning how much the truly liked each even when they thought each other hated the other one. This book had everything this reader loves in a book, nosy but caring family & friends, laughs, a few tears & chemistry out of the is world between the two main characters. Jenna Sutton has earned a new fan in this reader, I will definitely be going trying to find a way to get Quinn & Amelia, Jake & Teague’s books, if they are as good as Cal & Bebe’s I know this reader is in for a treat. If you are looking for a beach read or a vacation read recommend you grab a copy of Hanging by a Thread.
