I thought I’d left Blackwater, Texas behind for good. I didn’t belong in the small town, but my dad wouldn’t listen. He dragged me back home in his beat-up truck and dropped a bomb along the way: Chase Matthews was moving in with us. He was the golden boy of my high school, my former best friend, and the last person I wanted sleeping across the hall. His presence was too great a reminder of the ghosts I was trying to forget.
I didn’t ask for a hero. I don’t want to be saved.
To me, Lilah Calloway meant late nights sneakin’ out, moonlit hair, and sparklers in July. She was my best friend until the day she left and I’d assumed Blackwater had seen the last of her. Then, like a tempest, she rolled back into town for the final half of senior year. The chopped hair and dark devil-may-care attitude warned most people away, but I knew if I fought hard enough, I could find the lost girl.
I didn’t want to be her hero. Some girls don’t need to be saved.

I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way, I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things... everyday.
I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm a comedy geek and love all things "funny". Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.

Release Day Blitz: Lie with Me by M. Never

M. Never
Lie With Me
Release Day: November 27, 2015

Tell me a secret...

CJ Carmichael hasn't been able to get the vivacious blonde he spent four delirious days with off his mind. The blonde who was completely off-limits, but he couldn't deny.

Tell me a secret....

CJ had no intention of pursuing her, but Tara Stevens knew what she wanted and it was him. Now six months later, their time together still haunts him. As much as he's tried to talk himself out of seeing her again, the craving is just too powerful.

Tell me a secret...

Tara is more than willing to spend an entire fantasy weekend with CJ. More than willing to hand herself over to him completely and fulfill his every desire. More than willing to pretend he owns her despite their age difference and Kayne's disapproval.

Tell me a secret...

Sometimes fantasy becomes a reality. Sometimes people fall in love before they even know it- before they even know each other- and after its too late.

Tell me a secret...

Sometimes, beneath the sweetest secrets are the most deceptive lies.

I am in love with the Decadence After Dark series by M. Never. If you have't read it yet, now is the time to start. The first books in the series is deliciously dark and sexy. So, when I opened up Lie with Me on my Kindle, I was so excited to delve back into the world that the author created. While I absolutely loved this book, it was a lot different than what I was expecting.

This is CJ and Tara's story. If you've read any of the series, you'll remember that Tara is Ellie's sister who lives in New York. CJ is Juice, he was Kayne's handler. Tara and CJ hit is off immediately when they first met, then again at the wedding. I do believe that the two are perfect for each other, but Tara has a dark secret that she is keeping from CJ. In return, CJ keeps his job a secret. 

The story begins with CJ pining away in Hawaii for Tara who is across the country. Jett convinces him to take a trip to see her all the while covering for CJ when Kayne asks questions. Once CJ surprises Tara, the couple spend a magical, steamy weekend together that neither is ready to end. So CJ decides to stay for even longer. As the days go by feeling get deeper on both ends until the secrets brew to the surface.

CJ was the perfect mix of alpha and sweet. He isn't quite into the dark stuff that Kayne and Jett are into, but he is definitely dominate. Gah... some of the romantic things he did for Tara just made me fall in love with him. Tara on the other hand is sweet and sassy and loves every second of CJ's alpha ways. Again, the author created the perfect characters.

As I said before, this story isn't as dark as the other ones in the series. It took my mind a minute to adjust, as I was expecting a dark, erotic romance. What I got was sweet, hot, and erotic. Don't get me wrong, there were some dark, emotional elements in this story, just nothing compared to the rest of the series. However, it is a great addition and I can't wait to get my hands on Jett and London's story next!

Blog Tour: Some Sort of Crazy by Melanie Harlow

SSC BT Banner

Some Sort of Crazy Cover HH Blurb

    When a psychic tells Natalie Nixon her life is about to be upended by a mysterious stranger, she laughs it off. After all, she has everything she’s ever wanted—a successful bakery, the perfect boyfriend, and the keys to her dream house. Who could possibly make her want to throw all that away? Then Miles Haas comes back to town. But he’s no stranger—they’ve known each other since high school. Plus, he’s only around for the summer, he’s still a shameless playboy, and he makes a living writing articles for a men’s magazine with titles like 'Should You Bang the Boss’s Daughter? A Flowchart' and 'Butt Stuff for Beginners: A Field Guide.' He’s not the man of her dreams, and she’s not about to abandon everything she’s worked so hard for just for a little fun. Except he makes her laugh like no one else, smells like heaven, and wears panty-melting glasses.

Some Sort of Crazy Teaser

Melanie Harlow has yet to disappoint me. Her books are always so fun and enjoyable. She is truly one of my automatic reads.

Some Sort of Crazy is book 2 in the series but can totally be read as a standalone since the couples are different in each book. The series follows a set of three sisters. I love these sisters. I want to be adopted, they have so much fun together all the while they are all so different from one another. Book two is Natalie’s story. She owns a bakery, has life all planned out and finishes everything she starts. Natalie needed to live a little. She worked nonstop. She was in a dead end relationship and needed some spice in her life.

Miles, a childhood friend rolls back in town. I LOVED Miles. I think he is one of my favorite heroes of Ms Harlow’s. He was funny, hot, sweet and really cared for Natalie. Miles lived up the bachelor life with lots of women but he always had a thing for Natalie.

I really loved this story. It had a second chance of love feel to it, mix in some great banter and a HEA, a recipe for a great book. I loved seeing Skylar and Sebastian still in love. Mixed into the story were some favorite characters from the Frenched series which is always fun. I can’t wait for Jillian (another sister)’s story.

Grab this book! Grab this series! Grab any book that Melanie Harlow publishes, you will not be sorry!

 The light was off in my room when I returned, and I could barely make out her shape under the blanket. Leaving my glasses on the bedside table, I slid between the sheets, careful to stay on my side. When was the last time a woman slept in my bed without orgasms being involved? I couldn’t think of one time, actually. I didn’t even know what to do with myself. I lay there for a while on my back, hands beneath my head, breathing slowly and deeply, trying to stay calm. But I could smell her perfume, and it was making me hard again. Fuck! Was she asleep already? Could I rub one out without her knowing? I braved a look at her, and my eyes had adjusted to the dark enough to see that she was facing away from me, curled up on her side. Long, agonizing, minutes ticked by, during which I imagined rubbing my cock along the crack of her ass, which was sticking out in my direction. Taunting me. “I lied to you last night.” Her voice was so soft, I thought I might have imagined it. Or dreamed it. “Huh?” Stop thinking about her ass. She rolled to her other side and faced me, tucking her hands beneath her cheek. “I lied last night. I told you I didn’t remember what you said to me the night we said goodbye. The night before you left for school.” I blinked in surprise. “Oh.” “Did you really mean the things you said?” “Of course I meant them. I stand by every word I’ve ever said to you.” And my cock is standing straight up right now. So if you could please stop being beautiful and sexy and vulnerable, I’d appreciate it. Thanks. She took a shuddery breath. “And yet…tonight, you wouldn’t—” “Tonight was not about us, Natalie.” “But…what if it was?” She paused. “What if it could be?” Fuck, was she serious? Because I wanted that. I wanted a night that was just about us, wanted to show her what it was like to be with someone who appreciated her. Just one night, even if it was all we ever had. But I couldn’t be the one to initiate it, not without knowing it was really OK. “Natalie,” I started, but she interrupted me. “I’m lying here thinking, a week ago my life seemed so complete, everything in order. My relationship. My business. My house. I had everything I wanted.” “And now?” “Now I feel like I’ve been missing something. Like maybe I was wrong about what I wanted. I feel…lost.” She looked at me with her huge, round blue eyes, making my whole body heat up. “You’re not lost.” Rolling onto my side, I met her forehead with mine. “You’re right here with me.” And I kissed her. Just like that, I kissed her.
