Release Day Blitz:The Social Affair by Britney King

Title: The Social Affair
Author: Britney King
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: January 18, 2018 

In the tradition of Gone Girl and Behind Closed Doors comes a gripping, twisted, furiously clever read that demands your attention, and keeps you guessing until the very end. For fans of the anti-heroine and stories told in unorthodox ways, The Social Affair delivers us the perfect dark and provocative villain. The only question—who is it? A timeless, perfect couple waltzes into the small coffee shop where Izzy Lewis works. Instantly enamored, she does what she always does in situations like these: she searches them out on social media. Just like that—with the tap of a screen— she’s given a front row seat to the Dunns’ picturesque life. This time, she’s certain she’s found what she’s been searching for. This time, she'll go to whatever lengths it takes to ensure she gets it right—even if this means doing the unthinkable. Intense and original, The Social Affair is a disturbing psychological thriller that explores what can happen when privacy is traded for convenience.


Britney King lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, children, two dogs, one ridiculous cat, and a partridge in a pear tree.


When she's not wrangling the things mentioned above, she writes psychological, domestic and romantic thrillers set in suburbia.

Currently, she's writing three series and several standalone novels.
The Bedrock Series features an unlikely heroine who should have known better. Turns out, she didn’t. Thus she finds herself tangled in a messy, dangerous, forbidden love story and face-to-face with a madman hell-bent on revenge. The series has been compared to Fatal Attraction, Single White Female, and Basic Instinct.
The Water Series follows the shady love story of an unconventional married couple—he’s an assassin—she kills for fun. It has been compared to a crazier book version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Also, Dexter.
Around The Bend is a heart-pounding standalone, which traces the journey of a well-to-do suburban housewife, and her life as it unravels, thanks to the secrets she keeps. If she were the only one with things she wanted to keep hidden, then maybe it wouldn’t have turned out so bad. But she wasn’t.

The With You Series at its core is a deep love story about unlikely friends who travel the world; trying to find themselves, together and apart. Packed with drama and adventure along with a heavy dose of suspense, it has been compared to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Love, Rosie.

The Social Affair is an intense standalone about a timeless couple who find themselves with a secret admirer they hadn’t bargained for. For fans of the anti-heroine and stories told in unorthodox ways, the novel explores what can happen when privacy is traded for convenience. It is reminiscent of films such as One Hour Photo and Play Misty For Me. 
Without a doubt, connecting with readers is the best part of this gig.

Sex, not Love by Vi Keeland





SEX, NOT LOVE
(A standalone novel)
Release date 1/15/2018
A Contemporary Romance Novel
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland


My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.  
We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. 
Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an
intense, mutual attraction.  
I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we
danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt,
dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the
opposite effect on me.
We ended up back in my hotel room.  The next morning, I headed home to New
York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.
I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming,
cocky, gorgeous-as- sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of
our friends’ baby.  Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit.  After a whirlwind trip, he
demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she
could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back
home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s
house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my
mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend
that time screwing each other out of our systems.
Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to
lose?
Nothing, I thought.
It’s just sex, not love.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

“You’re not going anywhere before you do two things.”
“Two things?”
“Leave your number and kiss me goodbye.”
“I…I…you haven’t brushed your teeth.”
Hunter chuckled. It felt like he could see through all of my bullshit. Reaching
over to the nightstand, he grabbed his phone and held it out to me before getting
up. “Toothpaste in the bathroom still?”
“The little one the hotel sets out.”
“I’ll brush. You type.”
While he was in the bathroom, I mulled over not typing anything into his phone.
There was no way I was keeping in touch with a man living three-thousand miles
away. A guy like him was the last thing I needed. But then I thought better of
just telling him I’d put my number in. He seemed to have figured me out pretty
quick. So instead, I typed my name and number, only I changed the last two
digits.

And it was a good thing I did, because when Hunter returned from his bathroom
trip, the first thing he did was check that I’d entered something. Luckily, he didn’t
attempt to call me. Satisfied, he tossed his phone on the bed and nodded.
“Thank you. Now kiss me.”
I could see he wasn’t going to let me leave without this. So, sacrificing to make my
plane, I pushed up on my toes and delivered a quick peck to his lips.
Mmm.... Nice and soft.
(And minty fresh.)
“Well…it was nice to meet you.” I turned to dart out the door, but Hunter grabbed
my wrist yet again.
“I said kiss me.”
“I did!”
“Kiss me the way you kissed me last night.”
Before I could even attempt to let that sink in, Hunter yanked me against him.
One of his large hands cupped the back of my neck, and he squeezed firmly to
direct my head where he wanted it. Then, his lips crashed down on mine.
The shock of feeling his mouth against mine quickly dissipated as he licked my
lips, encouraging me to open for him. His tongue dipped inside, and he groaned
as he tilted my head and deepened the kiss. The vibration of the sound traveled
between us and sent a hum through my body. Soft and gentle went out the
window after that. He grabbed a fistful of my ass, and I lifted my body up onto
his, wrapping my legs around his waist. As he backed us to the wall, a sense of
familiarity overcame me. I couldn’t remember the specifics of our previous kiss,
but I now knew deep inside what it had felt like.
My cell dropped from my hand so my fingers could tangle in his hair. Yanking on
the soft strands, I couldn’t get enough. A moan from deep inside my chest moved
through our connected mouths. Hunter pushed harder, his thick erection
pressing into the center of my open legs. He rocked as he kissed me, causing a
friction through two layers of clothing that was leading me to a place I didn’t
think it was possible to go fully dressed.

It felt like he wanted to swallow me whole, and in that moment, I would have let
him. My breasts were crushed to his chest, and a heartbeat raged out of
control—only I wasn’t sure if it was my own or his. Jesus, where does a man
learn to kiss like this?
I was breathless and stunned when our kiss broke. Hunter sucked on my bottom
lip, tugging it before releasing my mouth.
His voice was strained. “Change your flight. We’re not done here.”
I swallowed, trying to gain some composure. “I can’t.” My voice was barely a
whisper. It was all I could muster.
“Can’t or don’t want to?”




Y'all. I officially have a new book boyfriend. Hunter Delucia is MINE. I'm not sharing him, he's all mine. With every Vi Keeland release I have a new favorite book from her. She always finds a way to top her last release and Sex, not Love was no exception. I was hooked from the first page and was all consumed until I finished it. I devoured this book the same was Hunter devoured Natalia every time he looked at her. 

Sex, not Love is the story of Natalia and Hunter.  Natalia's best friend, Anna, is marrying Hunter's best friend, Derek. Natalia and Hunter's first meeting cracked me up. I knew instantly that I was going to fall in love with both of them. 

Nat has sworn off all relationships. She got burned really bad by her ex and refuses to make the same mistake twice. Nat sticks to boring men that she knows she'll never have feelings for. I really liked Nat. After everything she had been through, she persevered and has made the best of her life. Vi know's how to write a great female heroine. You can easily connect with them and feel every emotion they feel. There were times my heart hurt for Natalia, I felt her pain. I also swooned and laughed right along with her.  

Hunter Delucia is hands down my favorite male character that Vi Keeland has ever written. He's brass, sassy, sexy, and completely swoon worthy. I swooned HARD over him. Hunter doesn't do relationships either. He's had one serious girlfriend and none sense. He's more of a date around kind of guy. You could say he's kind of a man whore. Vi did a fantastic job of slowly revealing details about Hunter's life. Getting his back story really helped with understanding why he is the way he is. She flawlessly flashed back and forth from past to present allowing the book to flow seamlessly. 

Natalia and Hunter's relationship or lack there of is a slow burn. I loved that about it. There was no instant love here. The build up added great depth to their agreement, only sex no love. I really enjoyed the banter back and forth between the two of them. 

We can't forget about Izzy, she plays a large part in their story. That girl cracked me up and made me flash back to my own years in high school. I loved watching her grow throughout the story. 

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I wanted to give it five stars but the one thing holding me back was I felt there was one element that wasn't fully resolved. It seemed that there was a lot of build up with Garrett and he was a huge part of why Nat is how she is. I just wished I could have gotten a little more about the conclusion of what happened other than just a few sentences. Don't let that detour you from reading this book. Sex, not Love is a great read, one you don't want to miss.

Gentleman Nine by Penelope Ward

             

We are thrilled to bring you the cover from New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward. Gentleman Nine releases on February 19th! 



Cover designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA designs
Cover Model: Lucas Garcez
Cover Photography: Sven Jacobsen
 

      From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.   Growing up, the three of us were friends. He was the nerd. I was the playboy. She was the beauty.   Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. He lied.   I went off to college, and he got the girl. Amber never knew how I felt. They were together for years—before he broke her heart.   Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.   Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men. One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings. Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity. Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message. She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend— me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.) Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel. When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

The Bitterroot Inn by Devney Perry

Today we have the release blitz for The Bitterroot Inn by Devney Perry! 
Be sure to grab your copy now!

Title: The Bitterroot Inn 
Author: Devney Perry
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Her past. His secrets. They have more in common than she knows. Maisy is happily content with the life she’s built for herself and her young son in small-town Prescott, Montana. Her child is thriving, her business is growing, and her family is as close as they’ve ever been. But when a handsome stranger walks into the lobby of her motel, her simple life is swept up in a wave of affection for his gentle heart. None of those feelings can be trusted, though. She made that mistake before with another man. The man she murdered. Hunter was a different man when he first saw Maisy Holt from afar. He took one look at her and ran in the opposite direction. But years later, he’s back in Montana and unable to keep his distance. He shouldn’t have tried to find her but he never was good at rejecting temptation. The promise of the good she could bring into his life is too hard to resist. Maybe if he can disguise the lies and hide the deceit, he can keep her from learning the truth. Because his only chance at a future with her is by burying his past.




I was so lost in my sketching I flinched when the lobby door opened, and my pencil skidded off the page, leaving a deep mark even the eraser wouldn’t undo. I frowned for a split second before looking up, ready to greet my visitor with a megawatt smile. The smile fell, along with my chin. My visitor was straight out of a magazine. His light brown hair was tied back in a neat man bun. His strong jaw was covered in an expertly manicured beard. His caramel-brown eyes, framed with long, dark lashes, were aimed at me with such intensity they nearly knocked me off my stool. When he turned to close the door, I was suddenly very aware of the fact I was wearing no makeup and my clothes were about as dull as an economics lecture. But hey! At least you washed your hair today. Thank god I wasn’t in my normal blue baseball cap. I wouldn’t look like a complete slouch in front of this man. This man was all the good things about my Chrises rolled into one. This man should be in the middle of a photo shoot for a fifty-foot billboard, not standing inside my motel lobby. This man was about to get the mumbling, fumbling version of Maisy Holt the likes of which no one had never seen. Super.
