Cover Reveal
Levi's Blue
M. Leighton

Release Date: September 19, 2016

Four beautiful days.  Three steamy nights.  One breathtaking love.

Levi Michaelson. He caught me when I fell. Literally.
He wanted four dates. Four opportunities to prove I could trust him. Four chances to change my mind about him.
I agreed.
Probably not my smartest decision. He was everything I knew to avoid—gorgeous, charming, sexy as hell—but I couldn’t help myself.  When he touched me the whole world disappeared. I should’ve known I could lose myself to him, that he could be the one man to destroy me.
I guess it’s true what they say—some things are too good to be true.  And Levi Michaelson might just be one of them.

Shorter Bio:  New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, M. Leighton lives in the deep South with her super-hero husband and super-smart maltipoo.  She has a fondness for coffee and chocolate, loves the color red, laughs at almost anything and often stares out her window, daydreaming of far-away places.

~ Synopsis ~
 The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn’t exactly make a good impression.
I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date.
He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice.
So I told him to mind his own damn business—his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn business—and went back to my miserable date.
When he walked by my table, he smirked, and I watched his arrogant, sexy ass walk back to his date.
I couldn’t help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room.  Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.
When the gorgeous stranger and his equally hot date suddenly appeared at our table, I thought he was going to rat me out.
But instead, he pretended we knew each other and joined us—telling elaborate, embarrassing stories about our fake childhood.
My date suddenly went from boring to bizarrely exciting.
Wen it was over and we parted ways, I thought about him more than I would ever admit, even though I knew I’d never see him again.
I mean, what were the chances I’d run into him again in a city with eight million people?
Then again…
What were the chances a month later he’d wind up being my new sexy boss?

~ Excerpt ~
“Sorry, I wasn’t looking where—”
I froze.
The sight of Chase standing there was almost enough to knock me over. I’d secretly hoped to see him, yet never thought I actually would. What are the chances? I did a double take, sure I was seeing things. But it was him all right, in the flesh. And what flesh it is. Standing there shirtless and wet—wearing nothing but a pair of low-slung swim trunks—he had me stuttering. Literally.
“Ch…Ch…Ch—” I couldn’t get the word out.
Of course, Chase didn’t miss a beat. He smirked and leaned in. “You do a cute train impression, Buttercup.”
He remembers me.
I shook my head, attempting to snap myself out of it. But it was no use. He was so tall, and I was so short, I had no choice but to stare at his body. Water trickled down his abs. I was mesmerized watching it speed up and slow down as it crossed the rippled lines of his six-pack. Damn.
I cleared my throat and finally spoke. “Chase.”
I was pretty freaking proud of myself for getting that much out. He had a towel slung around his neck and lifted it to dry off his dripping hair, revealing even more flesh. His pectoral muscles were carved and perfect. And—oh, my God…is that… Holy shit. It is. His nipples were cold and erect, and one of them was….was…pierced.

~ Review ~
This was not my first experience with Vi Keeland’s writing but it was the first book of hers that I read.  I was introduced to her writing through her works she co-wrote with Penelope Ward.  Let me just say that Bossman was amazing and I will definitely be picking up some of her other works.

This book had me intrigued from the first chapter.  Chase was smug, sexy and all things trouble wrapped up in one.  Temptation at its finest.   But workplace romances are taboo so it is good that Reese musters up enough restraint to stay away from the sexy Bossman.   But can she truly stay away?

          The chemistry between Chase and Reese was off the charts hot.  There was enough emotion, angst, sass and in this book to keep any reader vested.  Having both been previously hurt they come to find solace and healing in each other’s company.  This book is a standalone so there won’t be more of Chase and Reese to leave you hanging but something tells me Chase Parker won’t be a book boyfriend to be forgotten so quickly.  Go #1click your copy and find out for yourself.

~ Synopsis ~

I, Makayla Alexander, am on a mission to reinvent myself. So when a super hot guy boards the plane and flashes his rock hard abs, I pay attention. When he sits next to me and offers me his nuts, I can’t resist. But when I choke on them and he tells me I need to work on my gag reflex, I realize I might be in over my head. Before I know it we’re in the lavatory and attempting to join the Mile High Club. Let me just say this...anyone who tells you it’s easy to get it on at 37,000 feet isn’t telling you the truth. After the flight attendant busts us for getting frisky in the air, the only thing that can ease my total and complete mortification is the simple fact that I am never going to see him again. Hours later, I can’t help but wonder if fate will ever allow me to become a new version of myself. Because Fate, she’s a fickle bitch. Case in seatmate is my new next-door neighbor. Even with the whole fate thing we have going on, we are so not meant to be together. He’s all cool and sexy in that make love not war kind of way. Guys like him are dangerous. With that bring-you-to-your-knees body, that handsome-as-hell face, and that dirty, dirty mouth, I guarantee one glance from him wets every girl's bikini bottoms. And then there’s me…the quirky girl looking to find herself in California. All I want to do is learn to let loose. Say words like peace and groovy. Bury my toes in the sand. Who knows, maybe even have sex on the beach. Unable to get him out of my head, I entertain the thought of being more than just friends. I know the idea is absurd. And yet, I go with it. You see Camden Waters gets me. Really gets me. Like no other guy has before. On this 7-mile stretch of paradise, I decide to keep things simple and just have fun...that is until fate decides to screw with me, again. Can two people hell-bent on finding themselves realize the search should have ended the day they met? Find out in No Pants Required—a sexy, funny, romantic stand-alone, that will have you hurrying to grab your bathing suit and rushing to the beach to check out every lifeguard on duty.

~ Review ~
It's always nice to pick up a new book from an author and find that the writer can engage and captivate you as a reader with different styles of writing.  No Pants Required was just that.  I loved this book from the beginning and hated to tear myself away.

Cam & Makayla were such an engaging and fun couple.  Their chemistry was off the charts and their inner dialogue very entertaining.  If you are looking for a book to grab your attention and take you on a whirlwind ride than this is your book! 

Makayla & Cam meet on a plane and since they have no plans to see each other again things get a bit heated in the air.  Landing in California sets Makayla's world on tilt when she discovers that her best friend knows her mystery man from the plane and they are apparently going to be living in close quarters. 

This book was everything I was looking for and more.  If you need a fun, romantic read for the summer be sure to #1click this book now!   I will definitely book looking to add a paperback of Cam to my bookshelf  and be waiting for more from Kim Karr.

Filthy English

Ilsa Madden-Mills
A smokin’ hot British player…
A jilted girl…
One night of mistaken identity…

*A modern love story inspired by Romeo and Juliet*

~ Synopsis ~
Two weeks before her wedding, Remi Montague’s fiancĂ© drops her faster than a drunken sorority girl in stilettos. Armed with her best friend and a bottle of tequila, she hops a plane to London to drown her sorrows before fall semester begins at Whitman University.

She didn't plan on attending a masquerade party.

She sure didn’t plan on waking up next to the British bad boy who broke her heart three years ago—the devastatingly handsome and naked Dax Blay. Furthermore, she has no clue how they acquired matching tattoos.

Once back at Whitman together, they endeavor to pretend they never had their night of unbridled passion in London.

But that’s damn hard to do when you live in the same house…

One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.

~ Review ~
This by far is my favorite series from Ilsa Madden Mills.  She delivers yet another sexy Brit who will not only melt your heart but your panties too.   I was super excited to get to know Dax Blay a little better after being teased with him in Dirty English.  I can definitely tell you that I was not disappointed in the least.

Remi didn't stand a chance against the charms of this Blay brother.  Dax had her tangled in knots from the start and knew exactly which buttons to push to send her falling right back into his arms.  

I felt bad for Remi's situation and her reason for being in Europe but was happy that she gave into her desires and got to know Dax.  And when I say know I mean on every level. 

This book will have you engaged from the first page and keep you gripping your kindle right to the last.  You will find yourself right there amongst the words living the journey of Remi and Dax.   I continually found myself smiling at their interactions and blushing with the smooth sexiness of Dax.  

Do yourself a favor and #1click this book.  It is the best kind of sweet, sexy, dirty and filthy english you will ever read.
