Excerpt Reveal: The Fix Up by Kendall Ryan

  fixupbanner  
     The Fix Up Kendall Ryan ebook cover 
 From New York Times Bestseller, Kendall Ryan, comes a sexy new standalone novel. My tempting, and very alpha friend Sterling Quinn is someone I consider off-limits. It's not just that we're friends, he's also cocky, confident, and British, which means he's a walking aphrodisiac. But lately he's been giving me the look. You know the one. When he thinks I'm not paying attention, and his gaze lingers for too long. And then we start working together, and that's when the sexual tension between us gets so thick, I want to hack through it with a machete. I want to make all these deep feelings I've harbored for him disappear, because there's no way this can end well. The lines between business and pleasure become irrevocably blurred, and I'm stuck between a rock, and Sterling's very, very hard place. Rather than keep a level head about our growing attraction, Sterling wants to go all in, showing me just how explosive we can be together. But I've been around long enough to know that this British bad boy is more than my heart can handle. I'm not about to be cast aside like yesterday's underwear when he's done having fun. Sterling’s never been told no, and he's not about to put his ego aside and play by my rules. But I never thought he'd fight so dirty.   Add to Goodreads

“Hey, Camryn. Did I forget something at your office?” he asks. “No, I just . . . I had some questions for you about tomorrow.” “Of course. What’s on your mind?” “Well, when you said hang out, what did you mean?” Anna’s hand flies over her mouth and her eyes widen. No sense in beating around the bush. I can almost hear the smile in Sterling’s voice when he replies. “What do you want it to mean?” Straightening my shoulders, I sit up taller in my chair. “Oh no, you don’t, mister. Before I agree to spend time with you, there are a few things I need to know.” “Go for it.” “How many women have you slept with?” “Pardon?” Sterling coughs. Anna is on her feet, making slashing motions across her throat with her hand. “Your number. What is it?” My tone is calm, controlled. I’m actually enjoying this. “Is that information you need as my publicist, or as the woman I’ve asked to hang out?” “Just answer the question, Sterling. Or can you not count that high?” He lets out a sigh, so brief I barely heard it. For a second, I’m sure he’s going to dodge the question. “Enough to know what I’m doing. Not enough to make me a total fucking wanker.” I laugh, despite myself. It’s actually a good response. “Let me make this clear for you. I like you, Camryn. We’re both adults, and there’s no reason why we can’t hang out and enjoy each other’s company without it turning weird.” What the hell does that mean? I’m more confused now than before. Maybe this is his last hurrah before becoming a married man. “I’m not quite sure what to say.” “We have fun together. Let’s keep it casual and fun; we both deserve that.” The man has a point. “But you’re about to be married,” I say. “Not tomorrow. Not the next day.” “But soon.” He exhales. “Yes, and that’s kind of stressing me the fuck out, so I could use a little downtime with someone who gets me.” I swallow. “Say yes,” he murmurs. “Sterling . . .” “I would never hurt you,” he adds softly. “Fine, but I’m not having sex with you.” Anna is now lying on the floor of my office, her face scrunched up in agony, her head in her hands. “We’ll see,” he says. A girly bubble of laughter escapes my lips, and I clamp a hand over my mouth. I want to bitch-slap myself for that outburst. But Sterling only seems amused.

Virtual Tour w/Giveaway: Intercepting Daisy by Julie Brannagh


Her heart may be in more danger than her job.


INTERCEPTING DAISY
Love & Football #6
Julie Brannagh
Released Sept 6th, 2016
Avon Impulse


From USA Today bestselling author Julie Brannagh comes the next fun and incredibly sexy novel in her beloved Seattle Sharks series.

When Daisy Spencer wrote an erotic novella about the Seattle Sharks' backup quarterback and her #1 crush, Grant Parker, she never expected it to become a runaway bestseller. If anyone discovers she wrote the sexy story, her days as a flight attendant for the Sharks would be over. But once she gets to know the real man behind the fantasy, her heart may be in more danger than her job.

Having Seattle fans think squeaky clean Grant is wild in bed is the last thing he needs-even if it might be closer to the truth than he will ever say. As he spends his days, and nights, with the gorgeous Daisy, he's not interested in going back to the lonely life he once led. But when the real author of the novella is finally outed, Grant and Daisy must both reveal the secrets they've hidden away or risk losing a love that's better than any fantasy.

Excerpt:

  Damn, now this is a woman I’ll gladly take to bed.
In worn jeans and a faded t-shirt, Dorrie Haverstick made Ben’s dick hard, a fact she’d notice if he didn’t get himself under control.
Sure, the dress she’d had on earlier had made him take a second look but this was the real woman. 
Her dark hair hung damp, the shoulder-length waves surprisingly sexy. And she hadn’t reapplied her makeup, which she didn’t need anyway.
She looked much younger and so much less like the polished sophisticate he’d seen at the club.
Was this the woman Ian dreamed about at night? The dreams that kept his cousin awake most nights and made Ian grumpier than a teething toddler the next morning?
Ben had been meaning to ask Ian about his worsening mood but hadn’t found the right time. Ian probably would’ve blown him off anyway.
Since they’d bought into Adam Oleksy’s private security firm six months ago, Ian had thrown himself into his career change with the zeal of a recent religious convert. But now Ben had to wonder if there was something else behind his single-minded focus.
Like maybe he was trying not to think about this woman, who continued to stare at him as if he was an alien from another planet.
“Excuse me?”
The question seemed to escape without her conscious knowledge, as if she had no idea what the hell he’d said. The absolutely baffled look on her face amused the hell out of him.
This brilliant woman had no idea how much he wanted to strip her naked and see how flustered she could get when he put his mouth between her legs.
He was about to open his mouth and flirt like hell when he noticed her eyes. Not as bright or sharp as they’d been earlier. How her lids drooped. The lady was practically asleep on her feet.
“Or maybe you just need to let me buy you a drink. You look like you could use one.”
He figured she’d turn him down immediately. When she didn’t…
Well now. Isn’t that interesting?
Then again, maybe she was just too damn tired to come up with a response.
Then she blinked. “And where would we go for that drink? I’m not exactly dressed to go out in public.”
As she swept her hand down her front, he felt justified in letting his gaze follow her hand.
And realized she wasn’t wearing a bra. Not that she needed one.
Well, fuck. He probably shouldn’t dwell on that fact. But he couldn’t make himself drag his gaze away until he’d had a damn good look.
Probably not a good idea to get your hopes up, asshole. Ian has dibs.
At least, that’s what he suspected.
Too bad, because the longer Ben stared at her, the more he wanted to get to know her.
“Would you like to come back to my place for a drink?”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

"What do you want?" Her voice is spiteful, yet stubborn.

"I would be a little bit more polite Adaline." The man pulls back his jacket showing her the gun tucked into his belt. “What I want is very simple, I want you to tell me everything that our dear friend Frank tells you. Can you?"

"And why would I do that?" demands Adaline, working up her courage once more. "I don't even know who you are!"

"It's simple, try don't do what I want exactly, and your pretty little face and body won't look so pretty. I think you won't stay along above ground so that anyone will see the damage done to it." The strange man smiles sweetly as he says this, almost as if he were telling her that her grandmother had baked her a cake and wanted him to deliver it to her personally.

"So save my number on your phone under a title that does not tie me to anything. I am the pizza guy. Whenever you see Frank, talk to Frank or hear anything that has to do with Frank I want to know about it. Believe me Adaline, if you do not tell me what happens I will know. Do you imagine that I know you are currently helping him with a little project and dug around in the mayor candidate's offices?”

She’s savvy, hard-working, and eager to move up the corporate ladder. So when her boss tells her that in order to make partner she has to land a prestigious account, Mimi meets the challenge head on. Never mind that the prospective client is Daniel Vargas, the polished and pompous player who rejected her months ago. Mimi hasn’t given Daniel the time of day since their one fateful encounter, and while business has brought them back together, pleasure is what he has in mind. She says she’s not interested in giving him a second chance, but Daniel is prepared to call her bluff. All he needs is one week. One week to test her rules and prove that he’s exactly the kind of man she needs . . . “This debut romance sparkles.” -- Library Journal (starred review) on Unbuttoning the CEO “A fun, contemporary romance that reminds us that any attempt to predict or manage love is destined only to enhance its chaos.” -- The Washington Post on One Night with the CEO   Buy Links Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Getting-Dirty-CEO-Suits-Undone-ebook/dp/B01CDDAEWK Barnes & Noble: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/getting-dirty-with-the-ceo-mia-sosa/1123805884 iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/getting-dirty-with-the-ceo/id1088914669 Kobo: https://store.kobobooks.com/en-us/ebook/getting-dirty-with-the-ceo Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Mia_Sosa_Getting_Dirty_with_the_CEO?id=oj2nCwAAQBAJ Books-A-Million: http://www.booksamillion.com/p/Getting-Dirty-CEO/Sosa-Mia/Q869770339 getting-dirty-fb-teaser-_2 Exclusive Excerpt: Daniel Vargas needed a distraction. His gaze floated over the faces of the wedding guests until it settled on a familiar face. Mimi Pennington. The bride’s best friend—and distraction in the flesh. Bull’s-eye. She stood by the open bar and typed on her phone, giving him a minute to watch her undetected. The bridesmaid’s dress she wore skimmed her delicate ankles and hugged her generous curves. She’d pinned her blond hair on top of her head, her bangs and a few runaway strands framing her face. Though she was petite, Mimi’s larger-than-life personality made her appear six feet tall to him. And damn, that mouth. It was an entity unto itself, and for reasons he had yet to decipher, its barbs had recently begun landing on him. Still, like a moth to a six-alarm fire, he was drawn to her anyway. Didn’t matter that she would skewer him. He’d much rather focus on Mimi’s sharp tongue than the sadness in his parents’ eyes. So he strolled over to the bar and rested his elbows on the counter. “Hey, Fireworks.” She stopped typing and raised her head—but she didn’t bother looking at him. “What do you want, Vargas?” “I’m flattered. Do you have a sixth sense when it comes to me?” She turned to face him then, her blue eyes sparkling. “You know how dogs have this supernatural ability to hear sounds at high decibels? Well, I have a similar talent for detecting pompous men. I could sense you from across the room. Watching. Plotting. Arroganting.” He chuckled, the brief exchange already lifting his mood. This was why he chose to engage with her: A conversation with Mimi never traveled along a straight path, and the journey was just as enjoyable as the destination. “Arroganting?” “Being arrogant. It comes so naturally to you, the word deserves to be a verb.” getting-dirty-with-the-ceo-quote-graphic-_3

Excerpt:

“You fucking conned me from the start.”

A hot tear hits my cheek—I can’t deny it. I did.

“I’m so sorry,” I whisper.

Gripping my face, his rough mouth covers mine, shoving my lips apart. My knees go liquid, but he jerks me up firmly against his chest. Gripping his shoulders, my fingers curl against his hard muscles as his tongue claims mine.

He lifts his head, and our mouths break apart with a gasping smack. My lips throb with the force of it.

“Is that a lie, too?” His eyes are dark.

“N-no,” I gasp. The fine hairs dusting his chest tease the skin above my bra, and I’m so wet. His large hand slides between my thighs, over those thin boxers. I’m bare underneath, but he’s not invading, he’s teasing. I ache for him so much, I can barely stand it. Still holding my cheeks, he forces me to meet his angry eyes a moment before he kisses me again. Again, it’s hard, passionate, demanding, and all the sensations overwhelm me.

Jerking my head back hazel eyes burn into mine. “Every time you moaned for me, every time you begged… Were you lying then?”

“No!” I cling to him as his hand snakes around to cup my ass through the thin cotton material. “I never saw you coming. Even if I had, I never could have been prepared for you. Not in a million years.”

His eyes narrow slightly, and he places both hands on my cheeks, moving his thumbs over my mouth. The muscle in his jaw moves, and I can see so much anger in his eyes.

“Cal—”

“Don’t.” A thumb stills on my lips, stopping my speech.

He slides his thumb over my slightly fuller top lip. His eyes follow his movements, and I remember our night on the boat, him telling me all the things he sees when he looks at me. Just as fast, I remember the way he fucked me that night, the way we were both wild and passionate.

Our eyes meet, and I have no idea what he sees now when he looks at me. I don’t know if the love he felt for me has been snuffed out by the truth of who I am. I don’t know what he’ll do next now that he’s caught me.


I only know as much as I don’t deserve him, he’s my prince. I gave my heart to him, and no matter how far I run, I’ll never stop wanting him.
