Release Day Blitz
Dangerous Temptations

Brooke Cumberland
Release Date: February 25, 2015
Photography: Perrywinkle Photography 

Models: Chase Williams and Whitney Rae Diederich
Cover Design: Perfect Pear Creative Covers

 ~ Synopsis ~
One night was all it took…
One night to ruin everything I thought I knew.

From the outside, I had the perfect lifestyle.
Wealthy fiancé, blossoming career, amazing friends.

I wasn’t looking to get married yet, but when William—“Manhattan’s royalty”—charmed his way into my life, I couldn’t deny the security and comfort that overcame me.

To society, I was the girl only after his money. I was the party-goer who managed to seduce a man twice my age to have the lifestyle some could only dream of. I was every magazine’s cliché of what a gold-digging whore was.

I wanted to prove them wrong—that our love was real and that I wasn’t that girl.

But then everything changed. 
One wrong decision. One unfaithful night. One haunting reality.
Perhaps they were right. 

The media didn’t see it coming…and neither did I. 

** This is a stand alone romance suspense novel with no cliffhanger. HEA depends on who you ask. **  Recommended for readers 18 and up due to strong language and explicit sexual content.

  ~ Excerpt ~
“How long do you plan to act like this?” His question shocked me, my body jerking in response.
“Act like what?” I turned around, narrowing my brows in disapproval.
“That you despise me,” he said bluntly.
I thought about his question for a moment, realizing this was probably just as hard on him as it was on me, but he was the one acting like an arrogant jerk.
“I wouldn’t have to if you’d stop trying to cross boundaries with me when you know it’s inappropriate.”
“Inappropriate?” He laughed, pissing me off more. “Good god, it’s like you’re a Stepford Wife.” 
“You know what I mean.”
“You mean…that I’m tempting you? That I’m giving you something more to desire?” He took a step toward me, caging me in with his arms around me. I stepped back as far as I could before hitting the back of the sink. “If you didn’t feel it too, there’d be no issue. But I know for a fact you do.”
I swallowed, hating that he was right, but it didn’t mean anything. It couldn’t. 
“Just because your technique—“ I waved a finger between us, “—normally works for other girls, doesn’t mean it’s going to work on me.”
He furrowed his brows and asked, “And what technique would that be?”
“Getting what you want, who you want.” I pushed against his chest, needing the space. “You’re not used to girls saying ‘no’ to you. You use your name, your father’s popularity to gain respect, and truthfully, it’s a little pathetic,” I snapped, the courage I’d felt quickly left as his eyes darkened, getting more intense. 
He leaned into me and shot back, “Do you see any other girls here?”
“Give it time.” I held my ground as best I could. His face that close to mine was making it almost impossible to think straight. 
He laughed in my face, a deep, throaty laugh that came out as if he was amused by my antics. “If it’s on the Internet, it must be true, right?” 
I had looked him up late last night when sleep wouldn’t come to me. Although I tried, wanting—needing—to forget that whole day, it just wasn’t happening. Most of the stories were from his teenage and early college years, there hadn’t been anything recent, but I used it against him anyway.
“Isn’t that the way the game works?”
“I don’t know what game you’re playing, sweetheart, but I know what you felt when you kissed me. You feel what I feel and there’s no denying that.”
His eyes looked into mine, confident and tense as I stared back. “It doesn’t matter, Alex. It’s never going to lead to anything, so you should just stop trying.”
“And what if I don’t?”
“You’re just wasting your time.”
“I’m willing to bet I’m not, but if you want to be delusional, fine with me.” He pressed his chest against me and brought his face closer to mine. “I wasn’t sorry for what we did, Mac. I’ll never be sorry for that. I’m only sorry you felt guilty about it afterward.”
“If you cared about me at all like you claim, you’d back off, Alex.”
He huffed in an amused laughter. “That’s one thing you should learn about me, Mac. I don’t back off on something I want.” He gripped my chin with his thumb. “I was trying to get you out of my mind, and I failed miserably. The only thing I want from you isyou. I don’t need to parade you around like a little trophy wife or show you off to my friends. Once you see that, you’ll change your mind.” He dropped his hand and stepped back, walking away with the last word. It didn’t matter anyway, I had nothing left to say.

Under the Influence
L.B. Simmons

~ Synopsis ~


I loved you once. A love I thought irrevocable. A love I mistakenly believed could transcend both time and circumstance. Under the influence of my dimwitted, naïve, traitorous heart, I became intoxicated with what I now know was simply a figment of my self-indulgent imagination. So drunk on the feeling, I couldn’t see what was right in front of my face. So foolishly enamored, I blindly followed my heart into the depths of an emotion that would ravage me. 
Years later, I know now what I wish I knew then. I am stronger. Smarter. Tougher. I will not allow myself to be broken again. 
I loved you.
I raged for you.
I wept for you.
And now, I’m letting you go.

Author’s Note:  Under the Influence is the journey of two childhood friends that spans the course of five pivotal years in their lives. It is a story about their discovery of true friendship as it blossoms into first love, their experience of crucial sacrifice and ultimate betrayal, and their endurance of agonizing heartbreak on the way to finding lasting redemption.

“So, what’s the deal with you and Juli?” He asked with a critical eye. Instinctively, I took a step back. I’d already been hit once in Julianna’s honor, and I wasn’t in the mood for another punch. “Um, we are more like friends, I guess?” I could hear the shake in my voice as I responded. Suddenly, getting lost in Maryland seemed like a fine idea. “Look, I know your type. You are all good-looking-Rico-Suave, and you take nice girls like Juli for a ride and break their heart. Now don’t get me wrong, she is tough, but she is still your normal woman who is hoping to save the bad boy.” “I’m the bad boy.” I said it more like a statement of agreement than questioning his judgment. We’d already proven that, I thought, as memories of her body bending at my will and her soft cries and moans ringing in my ears as she clenched the bed sheets flooded my mind. “It’s too late, isn’t it?” he asked, his body tensing up as he stared into my eyes. “Um, well, you see, what had happened was—” You know, it doesn’t matter if you expect it to come. When someone cocks his arm back and brings it hurtling toward your face, there isn’t much chance of avoiding it. Chris was a lefty, and damn, did he pack a punch.

Release Day Review
Cassy Roop
Genre: Adult, Erotic Romance
Release Date: February 23, 2015
~ Synopsis ~

I screw men and get screwed for money, 
living my life everyday as Jericho Lane. 
My clientele list is immaculate. 
I am sought out, demanded 
and damn good at my job.
I don’t care that these men have families at home, 
or that they are important people. 
I do it for the money.
to survive.

There is nothing that could make me 
feel a bit of remorse or 
concern about what I do because 
I was born with the inability 
to experience or feel emotions...

I don’t feel PAIN
I don’t feel SORROW
I don’t feel extreme HAPPINESS or LOVE

I am VOID.

A blank canvas of emotions.
an empty hole in an endless sea of 
circumstances, moods and relationships.

Until one client changes EVERYTHING.

~ Review ~
This is my first read from Cassy Roop and to be honest the title to this book and the synopsis  are what really pulled me in.  VOID was exactly what I was hoping it would be. 

What is a person to do if they truly cannot feel or react to emotion?  Find the one that that does and stick with it.  And so Jericho Lane is born.  I absolutely loved Nicola/Jericho.  Her lack of filter was just a breath of fresh air. 

When Nicola is needed as a quick replacement for a client, little does she know her life is about to change.   Although she is thought to be void of emotion Jericho has a reaction to her client, Link and his associate, Sinclaire.  They somehow had the ability to break through the walls that she had be kept behind for her entire life.  

Link.....He had my attention from the first encounter.  I knew that there had to be more to him but wasn't sure just what it was.   As the story unfolds we watch Nicola/Jericho emerge from her unfeeling existence and battle her emotions.  Can she really be experiencing love after all of these years?  Can she trust in what she feels?  Are things really as they appear?

Now, I can't answer those questions without giving away the whole story.  It has several twists and turns.   Some I can tell you I saw coming and others I did not.  The story was engaging and is definitely a read worth picking up.
