BLOG TOUR: Her Submission by Lisa Renee Jones ~ The second and final book in the Dirtier Duet

 

The second and final book in the Dirtier Duet by Lisa Renee Jones.

Abbie swore that she was done with rich, powerful men. They’ve hurt her. They’ve hurt her mother, who she will do anything to protect. She’s done playing the submissive. She’s ready to fight back.The problem is that Gabe Maxwell is one of those rich, powerful men and he refuses to be ignored. He’s in her path and she can’t seem to steer clear of him. He wants her. She wants him. But it’s not that simple.

There is more to her story, more than Gabe knows, but then, there is more to Gabe’s story than Abbie knows, too.

“What do you want, Abbie?” Gabe demands, tearing his mouth from mine. “Say it. I need you to be clear. What do you want? But be careful what you ask for. You’ll get it.”

“More,” I say, twisting my hands in his T-shirt. “More of you, Gabe. All of you.”

He slides his hands under my leggings, palming my backside I left bare in the rush to take out Dexter. “More doesn’t get you a nice, funny guy, Abbie.”

“Thank fuck for that. Show me. Stop hiding. Stop trying to be only what you think I want, Gabe. Stop trying to be less than you are because that makes us less than we can be.”

“And if you can’t handle who I am?”

I’m on fire now, poking the bear and I can’t hold back. “And you’re afraid to find out. Is fear all I make you feel?”

His mouth suddenly crashes down on mine once more, his tongue pressing past my teeth, his kiss demanding, angry. He’s pissed. At me. At himself, I think, and that’s what I want to know. That’s the part of him I want to understand, I want to demand he show me.

“Get undressed,” he orders, setting me back from him, crossing his arms in front of that broad perfect chest of his.

My chin lifts in defiance, in refusal to allow him to intimidate me. Maybe he wants me to think he’s a monster like Kenneth. Maybe that should even piss me off but it doesn’t. It challenges me.

I pull my shirt over my head and toss it aside. “See?” I say. “Sometimes I even follow orders.” I unhook my bra, shrugging it away, exposing my naked breasts, the cold air puckering my nipples. “I must be very, very afraid of you.” I toe off my shoes and peel away my leggings, no panties to fret with. I’m not wearing any. Naked now but for socks, I’m not messing with, I close the small space between us and stand in front of him. “Or maybe I was right. You’re the one who’s afraid.”

He catches my hip and drags me to him. “You’re playing with fire.”

“Stop warning me away and pulling me back. Choose, Gabe. All in, remember? Or is that code for only if it’s me?”

His jaw clenches, his gaze lowering, raking over my naked breasts, and I can’t explain it, but I’m more naked right now, in this moment, with this man, than I’ve ever been before.

“All in, Abbie. That’s what you want? That’s what you’ll get.” He backs me up and presses my hands on the bar behind me and at my sides. He shackles my hips, and pulls me forward, forcing me to use them to hold myself up. “Keep your hands there,” he orders. “If you move them, I’ll punish you.”

Heat rushes through me but there is no fear. I don’t fear this man the way I feared Kenneth. I will never fear Gabe. I damn sure don’t fear the thick bulge of his erection pressing against my belly. “Punish me?” I challenge. “How would you punish me, Gabe?”

“You still haven’t been properly spanked, now have Abbie?”

“You spanked me, remember?”

“That was a love pat, remember? A spanking” he adds, most likely for effect, as he’s watching me with hooded eyes. “My hands on your pretty little ass. My cock buried inside you while I make it burn.”

His hand on my ass.

Spanking me.

His eyes lower to my mouth, linger with a promise of a kiss I crave but that doesn’t come, his gaze lifting with his own challenge. “Are you scared now?”

“If that’s the goal, it’s safe to say that you failed. I’m pretty sure what’s going on with me right now, can not be described as fear. Are you scared?”

I expect him to laugh or balk but he doesn’t. He leans in close, his lips at my ear, “From the day I met you, baby. From the day I met you.” He pulls back to look at me, blue eyes lit up and like fires in a forest, they burn a path through me. “And you’re right. I am pushing you. Right here. Right now. Don’t move.”

The road to hell is paved by good intentions.

I’m living proof of that.
When I met my wife I had good intentions. When I stayed in a marriage that doesn’t work (to put it lightly) I had good intentions.
But then she came to work for me. 
She was supposed to just a desire I would never fulfil.
I am a married man.
A father,
and she is too young.
But then, my wife crossed the line, and she came offering something I couldn’t say no to, and all my good intentions went right where I was going.
To hell.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
 

Ana Balen was born in Zagreb, Croatia, where she still lives with her husband, their son (read boss!) and the son’s pet rabbit named Shhh! (or some other gibberish that’s the favorite of their son for the day.)
She spends her days driving her husband up the wall (when he can’t get her ass up from the bed in the mornings), reading and daydreaming, or following orders from a three-year-old. In the hectic life she leads (and loves every second of it), she never thought about writing. But, then one day a name popped in her head, then, the snippets of things, and she sat down and started typing. Next thing, she wrote a book. And now, she’s trying to write another one 😉

Special Agent Vin Mills has everything he’s ever wanted. Sweet job. Rock hard abs. An ass you can bounce a coin off of. And a money laundering mob boss who’s about to go down.
The only thing standing in his way is fresh off the desk bombshell in heels, Special Agent Addison Buckley. She’s just destined to screw everything up.

Addison Buckley has one thing she wants—a promotion. The only thing standing in her way is egotistical and tattooed hottie, Vin Mills. The department wants them to pose as newlyweds and blend with the residents in one of the most prestigious and nosy neighborhoods in Colorado. A few touches, a few kisses, no problem.

Saying and doing are two different things, and this is one game of espionage these two rivals never bargained for.

ஜRYANஜ

I’m called The Reaper by many
Due to the countless men I’ve sent to their graves.
Bad men that have touched the people I love.
Men that ruined the life of an Angel.
My Angel.
I sent her into hiding and now I want her back.
She can fight me all she wants,
But when the dead rise,
Only The Reaper can save his Angel.

ஜCECILIAஜ

Ryan Simon is my curse and my salvation.
He leads the darkness that I’ve been running from, my whole life.
When I think I’ve finally been freed,
He shows up to claim what is his.
I yearn for his touch,
Yet I’m afraid of the burn.
But when our past comes hurling back at us,
He’s the only one I can trust to keep me alive.

RELEASE TOUR: Title: Sniper, Series: Reed Security Series, Author: Giulia Lagomarsino

Title: Sniper
Series: Reed Security Series
Author: Giulia Lagomarsino
Genre: Contemporary Security Romance
Release Date: April 22, 2019
Chance “Sniper” Hendrix is all about a good time. He was married when he was serving as a Navy SEAL and it didn’t work out so well for him. When his wife left him, he decided that he was going to enjoy life and do what he loved. He knows that marriage can be good, but he just doesn’t want to go there again. He never intended to sleep with a stripper. He never intended to get involved in her life. But now that he has, there’s no turning back. But there’s nothing fun about the situation he just got himself into and there may be no way out.

 

 
Morgan James is searching for her missing daughter, Payton. After months of a dead end investigation, she takes matters into her own hands. Working as a stripper, she’s looking for a man named ‘The Broker’. He either has the information she needs or he’s the one behind the devious plot. She’ll do anything to get her daughter back, but in this tangled web of lies and manipulations, who can she trust?

“F&ck, man. You got a Whitworth Rifle?” I stood up so fast, my chair flew backward. I stalked over to Vanessa and tore the box from her hands. I laid the box on the table and took a deep breath before I opened the lid. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. Holding the Holy Grail would have been nothing compared to this.“Give me some gloves,” I snapped. No one did anything for a minute, but when I glared around the room, Craig took off and was back just a minute later with a pair of gloves for me. I pulled them on and then ever so gently picked up the rifle.

“Vanessa, you don’t know what you have here. This magnificent weapon was designed by Joseph Whitworth in 1854. There were only thirteen thousand four hundred built between 1857 and 1865. Do you know how many of these still exist? There probably aren’t any left. This could be the very last original rifle in existence.”

I ran my hand over the gun lovingly, murmuring to myself. “49 inches in length with a 33-inch barrel. Fires two to three rounds per minute with an effective firing range up to a thousand yards, with a classic iron sights scope. F&cking beautiful.”

“Should we leave you two alone?” Jackson asked.

“You don’t know how amazing this is.”

“I do,” Cazzo cut in. “That’s why I bought it.”

“Yet, somehow you forgot to mention it to your wife,” Vanessa scolded.

“Now, sweetheart, this is a collectible. For how old it is and how rare, I got a great price.”

“Really? How much was it?”

“Just a few thousand dollars.”

“Oh,” Vanessa sighed in relief. “That really had me worried for a minute.”

“Baby, I would never go out and spend a ton of money without talking to you first.”
Vanessa smiled at him. “I know, Sam.” She walked forward, pulling out a piece of paper. “I was just really worried when I saw this bill for a Whitworth Rifle that was sold at auction for $161,000!”

    
  
   
I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

Title: Wed to the Warrior

Series: Kilts & Kisses #3

Author: Madison Faye

Genre: Wildly historically inaccurate 

Highlander
historical romance

Release Date: April 22, 2019

 

Blurb
Other would-be suitors called me
“challenging”.
But the most
undeniable, sinfully gorgeous Highlander lord around calls me a challenge.
Oh and he calls me
something else, too: his.
Marriage has never been
in the plans for me. Not with my reputation for being “headstrong” and
“disobedient”. That is, until Lord Callum Bruce barges into my world and
scatters those plans all over the place.
But Lord Bruce is
brute of a man. A battle-hardened soldier and fierce,
dominant Highland lord. Well, that and completely beautiful, which is so
very, very unfair.
When he tells me I’m
to be his wife, I flee. But there’s no running from the most
dominant, gorgeous, sinfully tempting man I’ve ever met.
Not after I’ve had a
teasing taste of those perfect lips. Not when I’ve felt those rough hands on
me. Not when deep down, I want him to chase me.
…Not when deep down,
I want him to take all of me.
The first kiss was a
mistake. The second was stolen. But the ones after that, I’ve run out of
excuses for.
I’ve scared nine
would-be-suitors away. But something tells me, number ten isn’t going anywhere.
Passionate about
plaid? Step into something wild, filthy, and tropey as all get-out. Hot, alpha
af, and WILDLY historically inaccurate. Warning: not responsible for lost or
ripped bodices. Reader beware.
As with all my
books, this one is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

Synopsis:

My subconscious wanted him even when logic said I shouldn’t.<>/i

Alister Bennet

Loyal, reliable… predictable even, I’ve always done what’s expected of me. Stay out of trouble, get my teaching degree and build a respectable career as a college professor. The job comes with a long list of rules and at the top of that list is no fraternizing with students. Following the rules seemed easy enough, until a dark, tortured boy sat outside my office waiting for me. His voice told me it was his grade he was worried about, but the deep onyx pools of his eyes told me more as they shook the solid ground I’d always stood on.

Am I willing to risk my career, my carefully built reputation, to help one so filled with pain I can taste it?

Benjamin Wallace

Rejected, abused, and abandoned my entire life, all I’ve ever wanted was to be accepted, loved even. I thought going to college on a scholarship would be my ticket out of hell, but nothing good ever comes without a price. As graduation nears I find myself drawn to the mysterious professor like a moth to a flame. Just one meeting with the man that has been starring in my dreams has my soul screaming for him to hold me, comfort me. A relationship isn’t just frowned upon, it’s forbidden, but the heart doesn’t always know the difference.

Can I trust my mangled heart in his perfect life when my past repeats itself or will he destroy what is left of me?

*Author’s note: This is an MM teacher-student romance with themes including abuse and kidnapping. This story ends with a HEA.*

Learning Curve: MM Student Teacher RomanceLearning Curve: MM Student Teacher Romance by Andi Jaxon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Absolutely amazing! One of the best books of my reading year thus far. This book has all the feels and some of those emotions were killing me. This was my first book by this author and I am excited to read more.

Being a blogger, I see many author’s names. I read many blurbs, and add many books to my TBR. This was partially what happened with this book. Except, the blurb hit me hard! There was something about it that said, “Hey, you can’t just add this book to be lost among the hundreds on your TBR. You are going to read it now!” And that is exactly what I did. Unfortunately it was late at night when I started and couldn’t keep my eyes open. But you can bet as soon as my morning coffee was in hand, I grabbed my Kindle and read on. And Oh. My God! Could this book be any more intense, emotional and tragic. I knew after the first few pages I was going on the best of literary rides. That said, what an impression to have from a new to me author. Oh, I have to read more of her books.

Alister and Sam…..
Both of these men are complex, well developed characters. I had no questions regarding their lives by the end of the book. Learning Curve was tied up nicely in a perfect happily-ever-after. One that was beyond deserved. Especially for Ben. Secondary characters added more depth and a bit of humor (from Ali’s brother Alex) which was added to lighten the mood here and there. Trust me, I needed that. Alister is a math professor and is in his late thirties. He is successful, gorgeous, loyal, loves his family and will do anything to protect those he loves. Ali isn’t looking for love because right now in his life, he feels content. So when 23 year Ben Wallace shows up at his office on the first day of classes, he is absolutely blindsided. For some reason, all of Ali’s protective instants are on full alert. There is something intensely sad and tragic behind Ben’s eyes. I don’t want to spoil any of the development of these two amazing characters so I won’t say much more.

I will tell you to be ready for an an incredible read. Have a box a tissues ready. And be prepared, because your own protective instincts will come out. If there was a way to jump through the pages and keep Ben forever safe, I would have happily done it.

This book is a must read. To all of my friends that know me, I would not recommend a book if I didn’t believe it to be amazing. So happy to have found another great author and can’t wait to read more from her!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

SYNOPSIS:  Baby Mine

I saw her first.
Blonde. Gorgeous. Feisty.
I was smitten.

But it didn’t matter because she chose him and he was my best friend and roommate. I’d never be able to compete with that, so I pushed her away instead. It was easy when she lived hours away, and I didn’t have to see her every day, but then she moved in with us.
Now, I’m screwed.

To her singing in the shower every morning, dancing in the kitchen while she makes coffee, and doing yoga in our living room, I can’t stop thinking about her in all the wrong ways. She’s not mine and never will be, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to push her against a wall and claim her mouth.

She’s constantly on me for making messes, bringing chicks home every weekend, and being a smartass when their PDA gets on my nerves. Considering neither of them know how I feel, it’s not fair for the way I act toward them. I should move out so I can get over her for good; however, the selfish part of me can’t let go.

And then the unthinkable happens…
When my best friend dies in a motorcycle accident, the two of us are left to grieve our loss together. Instead of pushing her away, I pull her closer.

Just as we come to terms with our new reality, she finds out she’s pregnant with his baby.
And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my life.

**BABY MINE is an angsty, emotional, slow-burn romance wrapped up in a heartbreakingly delicious love story. It’s book 1 in the Hunter & Lennon duet of the Roommate Duet Series and must be read first.**

📝MY REVIEW📝:
Baby Mine: Hunter & Lennon, #1 (Roommate Duet, #1)Baby Mine: Hunter & Lennon, #1 by Kennedy Fox

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh my gosh! I need book two right now! I hate cliffhangers because I am the epitome of impatient. I get so invested if the story is great, therefore I live with anxiety waiting for the book’s resolution. Don’t get me wrong, some cliffhangers are just meh and I can wait for those closures patiently. However, Baby Mine was so good! This book has so much emotion. I will tell you now it is sad, tragic, emotional, and full of angst. This is one HEA I will be looking forward to.

So, the blurb pretty much tells you what is going to happen. And while I was preparing myself for the worst, it wasn’t enough. Yep! I had to put this book down and cry my ugly out before I could continue. So, yep, I continued the following day because I literally needed that time to breath. This is not a light read for sure.

Hunter and Lennon…..and Brandon
While Brandon does not have his own POV, his part in this book is heavy.

Hunter meets Lennon (first) at the club he bartends at. There was strong, undeniable chemistry between them and Hunter was eager to see where it could go. Unfortunately, Lennon, due to insecurities, ends up going home with Brandon. You should know here that Lennon’s feelings for Brandon were real. As the story goes on, so does the relationship between Lennon and Brandon. Hunter is not okay with it because he wanted her first. That said, Hunter won’t mess with his best friend’s happiness. And so the angst begins. Both Lennon and Hunter are not easy characters to like through the first half of the book. I won’t tell you why but you will quickly figure that out.

During the second half of the book, we see Hunter and Lennon’s relationship start to change. They actually will become friends. They need each other now to grieve the loss of Brandon. As they grow closer, feelings on Lennon’s side start to confuse her. Hunter has always been an open book regarding his feelings for Lennon but he won’t cross any lines. (When I explain ‘open book.’ I just mean the reader knows his heart, not Lennon)

I really don’t want to say more in the way of details but I will tell you that what comes at the end was a complete surprise to me. Writing this review is giving me anxiety all over again. I must have the next book! ASAP! Well done Kennedy Fox!!!

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
