Reese
Blackwood
I’m called America’s
sweetheart.
They say I have
the voice of an angel.
I almost gave all
that up, thanks to a traumatic experience at the start of my career. Instead of
letting it define me, I chose to rise above. I showed everyone what a woman on
a mission could accomplish, and now I’m living my dream.
After one chance
meeting, my entire world changes. Austin is every woman’s fantasy, and he wants
me. While the attraction is there for me as well, I don’t need any distractions
right now.

 

Austin Jones

Focused.
Driven.
I’m the man I am
today because I never let the idea of settling down disrupt being the best I
can during my hockey career.
But then Reese
floats into my life and everything changes, and now all I want to do is pin her
against the boards.
They say
opposites attract. You can’t get more opposite than Country Music’s hottest
female singer and a hockey player from Canada. With competing travel schedules,
our instant attraction appears to be doomed from the start. Can it really be
love? Or is it just a hot ice-melting fling?

[Release Blitz & Giveaway]: Surrender by S.E. Cooper

Title: Surrender

Series: The Hunter Series Book 3

Author: S.E. Cooper

Genre: Romance

Release Date: January 31, 2019

 

 

“You think I’m too hot to handle, don’t you, Freckles?”

 

“Maybe a little.”

 

 

“A little my ass,” he grinned, “Baby, you can’t breathe when I’m near you.”

 

 

Never in her wildest dreams did Sloane Bailey think Kerr Hunter would look her way. Now he’s offering himself to her in the only way he knows. It’s a hell of an offer for the reticent redhead who fell in love at first sight. She knows from the very beginning she’s in over her head, but she has neither the strength nor the inclination to deny him.

 

 

Kerr thinks his infatuation with Sloane is under control. He’s about to discover, when it comes to affairs of the heart, resisting the inevitable is a futile endeavor. However, he still has no intention of surrendering his tortured soul. When his painful past and perilous present collide, Kerr finds himself fighting for more than just his heart. Lives are at stake. He failed once before. He has no intention of letting it happen again. However, with his mind clouded by revenge and fear overshadowing his judgment, can Kerr unravel the tangled network of corruption before it’s too late?

 

 

 

 

“I should never have come here, not like this,” he admitted. “It was wrong of me.”

 

 

My eyes glistened with tears. “You think what we just did was wrong?”

 

 

He looked mortified. “Hell, no.”

 

 

“Then what do you mean?”

 

 

He stopped cleaning me and settled himself back on the edge of the tub.

 

 

“I wasn’t in a good place. I’d been drinking. What happened between us shouldn’t have happened. Not under those circumstances.”

 

 

“Is that…how you always like sex?” I asked, something that had been on my mind ever since he tied my hands.

 

 

Kerr grinned. “Sometimes I like to play.”

 

 

“Oh.”

 

 

“Sex is different every time,” he said gently. “Sometimes, it’s hard. Sometimes, it’s soft”

 

 

“Like Tahoe,” I murmured.

 

 

Kerr smiled. “Yes, like Tahoe. And sometimes I like to play.”

 

 

“So we were just playing?”

 

 

“Yes,” he replied, swirling his finger in the water close to my thigh. “It’s not something I expected to do with you this quickly, but I tend to lose control whenever I’m around you. It’s a bad habit of mine.”

 

 

I smiled.

 

 

I liked the idea I could make him lose control.

 

 

“You liked it.”

 

 

“Is that a bad thing?”

 

 

Kerr shook his head. “Never, you say the word and we can play anytime you want.”

 

 

“What word should I use?” I asked, sitting up a little in the water.

 

 

Kerr started to laugh, proper belly rumbling laughter. Then he leaned forward and planted a quick hard kiss on my forehead.

 

 

“Why are you laughing?” I scrunched up my nose. “What’s so funny?”

 

 

As entertaining as his laughter was, I refused to join in when it was at my expense.

 

 

“You are fucking amazing; do you know that?”

 

 

“I don’t understand why you’re laughing.”

 

 

“Freckles, most people choose a word for when they want to stop. You want to choose one for starting.”

 

 

“Oh.”

 

 

“Well, choose one then.”

 

 

“No.” I covered my eyes in horror.

 

 

“Sloane.” His tone changed back to commanding. “Choose a word for when you want to play, and I’ll make it happen.”

 

 

“You’re serious?”

 

 

“Deadly.”

 

 

I sighed, knowing there was no way I was getting out of this. “Okay then…Scarlett.”

 

 

Kerr nodded his approval. “The color of your hair.”

 

 

“No.” I flicked some bubbles at him. “The color of my ass when you spanked it.”

 

 

Kerr chuckled, “Scarlett it is.”

A dare turns into so
much more…
All I want to do is get to work on time.But a Prince Harry look-a-like is trying to steal my cab,

and that’s not going to happen.

In the midst of the battle,

I discover I lost my wallet.

So I bargain—a free ride for a kiss.

His lips taste like mint, and when he tugs me closer,

I can feel the hard muscles beneath his expensive suit.

The kiss ends just as we reach our destination,

and I’m so taken aback by the explosiveness of it,

I rush out without so much as a goodbye.

I’m a hopeless romantic with no time for distractions.

But fate, that bitch,

Has us pounding on the same locked door.

Already knowing I’m going to be fired,

I curse my new boss and his new rules.

The hot suit laughs,

And dares me to tell my new boss what a dick he’s being.

With nothing to lose, I accept.

Never in a million years could I have imagined he is my new boss.

Dating him is against the rules,

His rules.

He’s a rulebreaker, though,

And everyone knows a rulebreaker isn’t a forever-kind-of-guy.

So when he says let’s keep things casual,

I dare him not to fall in love with me.

But there’s a reason rules aren’t meant to be broken,

And finding that out is the hardest thing I’ll ever have to do in my life.

My rulebreaker has a name,

It’s Prince Maximus Montgomery.

And this is our story.

Addison Walker is every fantasy I never dared to believe in.
Moving to this town was already monumental.
Finding her removes any lingering doubt.
She’s bold and vibrant.
Beautiful and confident.

Luckily, I’ve never been very good at avoiding temptation.
My desire is growing beyond control.
I’m done waiting on the sidelines.
When opportunity strikes, I eagerly take advantage.
Signing on the dotted line before thinking twice.
The repercussions cross my mind far too late.
When she swiftly sticks me in the friend-zone, there’s not a
damn thing I can do about it.
Addison is just down the hall—might as well be miles away.
Temptation drives me to the edge of sanity.
She speaks to my deepest cravings like a siren.
Our chemistry blurs every line.

It only takes one night to change everything.

Excerpt
“Are you sure?” Because she isn’t acting like it.
“Yeah, this will solve the questioning.” That doesn’t sound
so great.
I rock back on my heels. “About?”
Splotches of red stain her cheeks. “Ah, well… if this,”
she motions between us, “was heading in a romantic direction.”
I feel the blood drain from my face. “What do you mean?”
“If we’re living together, the potential of us dating is
zippo. We’ll be roommates and friends, but that’s all. Otherwise it will be
awkward and tense and blah. No, thanks. Setting this boundary will cut out the
possibility.”
I choke on the brick lodged in my throat. “Wait, what?”
“Can you imagine the mess we’d be stuck in if things went
sour? Better to not chance it, right?”
No.
No, no, no.
I blink slowly, trying to process her words. Is this an
unwritten rule I wasn’t aware of? And what, now I’m trapped in the friend-zone?
I avert my eyes, glaring at a neon sign stuck to the far wall. An outcome that
doesn’t involve us as a couple seems impossible. I rapidly search for a
counter-argument, begging for a way out of this mess.
What the hell happens now?

In a world plagued by constant earthquakes and volcanic debris, people in the valley struggle to survive while those on top of the hill want for nothing.

This is where I come in.

I spend my nights plundering supplies in the walled city of Hilltop, and I trade them to the valley people below. I’m not a thief.  I prefer to be known as the head of Lost and Found.

When I discover a beautiful but dangerous competitor in my territory, I also learn she knows more about me than she should. Is she a spy sent by my father, or is she a rebel like me? I don’t trust her, but together we’ll discover secrets that may destroy what’s left of our world.

There have always been those with wealth and those without.

My name is Talen, and I’m here to even the score.

BLURB

British ad exec Dylan Locke isn’t looking for love. He isn’t looking for fate. He’s definitely not looking for Audrey Lind. She’s pretty, far too young, and overly romantic–in short, exhausting.

But when the girl, young enough to be his daughter, literally lands in his lap and asks for his expertise, he’d be lying if he said he wasn’t interested. In her body, in her innocence, in her philosophy.

In the kind of kismet that starts with kisses.

But Audrey isn’t looking for love either–she’s looking for lessons, and she’s certain Dylan knows everything she needs to learn.

If he agrees to play the teacher can he keep his heart?

Of course he can.

Then again,  he might be lying.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

   With over 2.4 million books sold worldwide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. Her international success started with her very first series, the Fixed Trilogy, which, alone, has sold over 1 million copies, and earned her the coveted #1 spot on Amazon’s bestseller list in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia, simultaneously. This title also was named in People magazine as one of the top 10 most downloaded books of 2014. She’s also been #1 over all books at the Apple Book Store with more than one title in more than one country. She’s published both independently and with MacMillan’s St. Martin’s Press and Griffin imprints as well as many other publishers around the world including Harper Collins in Germany and Hachette/Little Brown in the U.K. With her edgy, trope-flipped stories of smart women and strong men, she’s managed to secure herself among today’s romance royalty.

Paige has a Bachelor’s degree in Musical Theater and a Masters of Business Administration with a Marketing emphasis, and she credits her writing success to what she learned from both programs, though she’s also an avid learner, constantly trying to challenge her mind with new and exciting ideas and concepts. While she loves psychological thrillers and witty philosophical books and entertainment, she is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

About L.B. Dunbar

I’ve been accused of having an over-active imagination. To my benefit, this imagination has created over twenty novels, including the creation of a small-town world (Sensations Collection), rock star mayhem (Legendary Rock Star series), MMA chaos (Paradise Stories), rom-com for the over forty (The Sex Education of M.E.), and a suspenseful island for redemption (The Island Duet). My alter ego, elda lore, creates magical romance through mythological retellings (Modern Descendants). My life revolves around a deep love of reading about fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and strong alpha males. I love a deep belly laugh, a strong hug, and an occasional margarita. My other loves include being mother to four grown children and wife to the one and only.

I absolutely LOVE the Sexy Silver Foxes! L.B. Dunbar has sure mastered the writing of romance books for the over 40. I enjoy reading about characters who have real life expectations, real life problems and how these issues are resolved with experiences that come naturally to me.

Growing up, Mati, Chris and Denton were inseparable. Best Friends always having each other’s back. When graduation comes, and Denton leaves town, Mati and Chris grow closer. Eventually marrying and starting a family. 

While Denton took off and became a successful musician, he has never been back to town. 

Now 27 years later…is it time to reveal the secrets…

Or

Are secrets meant to be kept silent forever?

20180226_070300screen_shot_2017-09-10_at_7.48.56_am_medium

 

A standing ovation for LB to continuously break the romantic couple preset mold and write meaningful, real love stories about people over 40. It’s a courageous achievement which in itself deserves acknowledgement and accolades. 
Fantastic job LB and keep going, we need more authentic stories like this, with real day problems in real situations. It’s so refreshing to see mature characters behaving in a sensible way.
If this story had a relationship status, it’d be – IT’S COMPLICATED!!!

26888778

“Seems complicated has come a-knocking, Mati. Time to jump at the net,” 
This entire series has been fantastic but This One is outstanding amongst it all. 
It’s a Double second chance romance, in the sense that its a second chance for BOTH Mati Harrington-Rathstone as much as it is for Denton Chance. The trio of Chris, Mati’s husband, Denton & Mati were thick as thieves since childhood. They grew up together, experienced teenage pangs together and fell in love together. 

 

26888758.gif

 

Fate separates their ways abruptly and as it happens when hearts aren’t cleanly cut apart, but pulled away. strings get stretched, jagged edges take shape and lingering hostilities occupy empty space. Chris marries Mati and they live happily ever after and Denton…..well he becomes a rockstar and a photog model. 
Three souls separated, strive to live but emptiness comes claiming them back
God, I’m tired, I think as I consider the journey my life has taken. Rockstar. Photographer. Model. It isn’t that I don’t have a good life, but I’m tired all the same. 
The Prodigal Son returns home.

26888756

I’ll be barreling backward in time—a ride in reverse—and I’m curious how much of the past remains. 
Things have changed a lot, people have moved on, houses have become dilapidated, land has been overrun by weeds and friends are struggling to survive. But as is in small towns, gossip is still alive and flourishing.
He followed his heart from the start, but my journey has been twists and turns on a different path leading to this point. The road well-traveled. 

26888755.gif

It’s a beautiful story, THE BEST of the entire series in my opinion. The yearning and pining adds to the thrill of pulsating passions. Denton is at the center of the maelstrom that hits Blue Ridge in Georgia. And he brings his buddies back too who we met in earlier books.

26888754

I loved the sensitivity of the sentiments, the authority of Mati’s character. She’s no shrinking violet and carries herself beautifully, putting her sons in place and the entire town for that matter. The ending just blew me away. It’s a subtle power shift and the understated turn of events strengthen the placing of women in the story. LB has made the heroine strong TILL THE VERY END and for that alone this book deserves an extra mark.
“My whole life, I’ve given up things. My volleyball scholarship,My college education when I got pregnant. Then my body to my boys. Motherhood. Working for the pub. I’m not begrudging any of those decisions or circumstances. I wouldn’t trade most of them, but it’s also my time.” 

26888757.gif

Strong characters, precise storyline, right amount of intrigue, passion and sensuality. One thing I want to mention, after a long time I’ve read some great kissing scenes. Generally it’s sex taht the focus of romance but LB uses kisses to convey sentiments at different points of the story. I loved it.
I’m-afraid-I’ll-never-feel-again-how-I-feel-with-you 
Great enjoyable read
5 stars for Mati & the Minivan
