Love Me By Christmas by Jaci Burton



Love Me By Christmas 
by Jaci Burton


A sexy, standalone novella from the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of the Play-by-Play series and Hope series.

Ellie Washington lost her husband in a tragedy five years ago at Christmas. She wouldn’t have made it through her grief if not for her husband’s brother, Nick, who helped her pick up the pieces of her shattered life. And with every year, her feelings for Nick have grown. Now she realizes she might be in love with him, but that’s not fair, because Nick deserves a life that isn’t about his brother’s widow and son.

Sharing his life with Ellie and her son has been the balm that soothed Nick’s soul after losing his brother. Now that friendship has turned into something deeper. Nick doesn’t want to upset the status quo, but someone has to make the first move, and it’s time they figure out if their feelings are real. Nick believes in what they have. He also believes in Christmas miracles, and he thinks they’re both long overdue for one.

Clean Break (A Little Like Destiny Book 3) by Author Lisa Suzanne



Clean Break (A Little Like Destiny Book 3)



Will she get her clean break, or will she be forced back into everything she's trying to escape?
Best-selling author Lisa Suzanne's newest forbidden romance series pits a rock star against his business mogul brother.
After two brothers shatter her world, Reese Brady escapes to her old life. She occupies herself with work and friends in an attempt to find comfort after her catastrophic summer.
When Reese receives a desperate call from someone she thought she'd never hear from again, she's forced to confront the love she could've had. She has to decide between saving the man who broke her heart or moving on without him.
Will Reese get her clean break, or will she be forced back into everything she's trying to escape?
This forbidden romance series featuring a rock star and his business mogul brother must be read in order:

I was given an ARC for an honest review
An amazing conclusion, to a phenomenal trilogy.  
The way ‘Only Ever You’ ended, I needed ‘Clean Break’, as soon as I got it, I stopped everything to read it. I never wanted to pick a team but by the end of book 2 I was willing to admit I had.  Both brothers are great, or so I thought, book 3 starts where book 2 ends, within that first chapter I loved one brother and wanted to kick the other in the b@lls.  No spoilers you’ll just have to read it to find out.
Clean Break was full of emotions; I was full of emotions when reading it. All questions get answers.

If you like a good love triangle full of emotion, disaster, heartbreak, frustration, sex and a HEA you gotta check this trilogy out! 
A Little Like Destiny trilogy will be on my top reads list for 2017

From This Moment by Melanie Harlow

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing Date: October 10th, 2017


It was like seeing a ghost.
When my late husband’s twin brother moves back to our small town, I want to avoid him. Everything about Wes reminds me of the man I lost and the life we’d planned together, and after eighteen long months struggling just to get out of bed, I’m finally doing okay. I have a new job, an amazing support group, and a beautiful five-year-old daughter to parent. I don’t want to go backward.
But I’m drawn to him, too. He understands my grief and anger and guilt like no one else—and I understand his. Before long, that understanding becomes desire, and that desire becomes uncontrollable.
He says he doesn't care what people think, and love can never be wrong. But life has taught me its cruelest lesson--love doesn't always win.
If only my heart would believe it.

Excerpt:

“Want to go out in the canoe?” he asked.

“Okay.” I ditched my flip-flops on the small, beach-level deck, and we set our wine glasses and the bottle on the deck’s little round table. Wes was already barefoot. Together we dragged the forest green canoe from the tall beach grasses on the side of the deck down to the water’s edge and tipped it over.

“Let me rinse it out a little,” Wes said, frowning at the dirt and spider webs inside. “Want to grab the paddles? They should be in the shed.”

“On it.” I went to the small shed on the embankment, opened it up and grabbed the oars, which stood in one corner. On the shelves were life jackets and sand toys and deflated rafts that probably had holes in them, and scratched into the wooden door among other graffiti was WP + CB. Huh. I’d never noticed that before. Who was CB? I glanced over my shoulder at Wes, who’d taken off his T-shirt and tossed it onto the sand.

My stomach full-out flipped.

Quickly, I shut the door to the shed and brought the oars down to the canoe.

Wes stood up straight and stuck his hands on his hips. He wore different sunglasses than Drew had worn, more of an aviator than a wayfarer. The body was similar, though Wes’s arms seemed more muscular, especially through the shoulder. Other things were the same and caused a rippling low in my body—the soft maroon color of his nipples, the trim waist, the trail of hair leading from his belly button to beneath the low-sling waistband of his red swim trunks. In my head I heard Tess’s voice. Arms. Chest. Shoulders. Skin. Stubble. Muscle. The smell of a man. The solidity of him.

“What’s the law on drinking and canoeing?” he asked.

What’s the law on staring at your brother-in-law’s nipples? I wondered, swallowing hard. What was wrong with me?

“I think we’re okay,” I said, handing the oars to him. Our hands touched in the exchange. “Let me grab our glasses.”

“Perfect. If you hold them, I’ll take us out.”

I retrieved the wine glasses from the table and walked carefully across the sand to the lake’s edge, taking deep, slow breaths. A sweat had broken out across my back. I was wearing a swimsuit beneath my cover up, a modest tankini, but I didn’t want to remove it. Wading ankle deep, I attempted to step into the canoe, but it wobbled beneath my foot.

“Whoa.” Wes took me by the elbow and didn’t let go until I was seated at one end, facing the other. “Okay?”

I nodded. Despite the heat, my arms had broken out in goose flesh.

“All right, here we go.” As he rowed us away from shore, the breeze picked up, cooling my face and chest and back.

“Drew and I used to have canoe-tipping contests.”

I snapped my chin down and skewered Wes with a look over the top of my sunglasses. “Don’t even think about it.”

He just grinned, the muscles in his arms and chest and stomach flexing with every stroke of the oars through the water. Momentarily mesmerized, I allowed myself the pleasure of watching him. It was okay if we were both thinking about Drew, wasn’t it?

In fact, it was only natural that I was intrigued by the sight of Wes’s body. He was my husband’s identical twin, for heaven’s sake, and I missed his physical presence in my life. I missed looking at him naked. I missed feeling the weight of him above me. I missed the feeling of being aroused by him, of my body’s responses to his touch, his kiss, his cock.

Deep in my body, the rusty mechanism of arousal creaked to life. My nipples peaked, my stomach hollowed, and something fluttered between my legs.

Oh, Jesus.

I sat up straighter, pressed my knees together, and closed my mouth, which I realized had fallen open. Hopefully I hadn’t moaned or anything. After another sip of wine, I turned my head and studied a freighter off in the distance. My heart was beating way too fast.

It’s only natural. It’s only natural.

Wes stopped paddling and set the oars in the bottom of the canoe, their handles resting against the seat in the middle. “We’ll have to bring Abby out here.”

“Definitely.” Did my voice sound normal? “She’ll love it. Here, want this?” I held his wine glass toward him and he reached out to take it. His fingers brushed mine, and I pulled my hand back as if the touch had burned me.

“Thanks.” He tipped the glass up then looked along the shore. “I’d like to find a place on the lake. Maybe not along this stretch of beach, though.”

I caught his meaning and smiled. “A little too close to home?”

“Yeah. But I don’t want to be too far away. I’d like to get a boat too.”

“What kind of boat? Drew always talked about it, but we never quite settled on one.”

“Not sure. Maybe just a little fishing boat, something to ski behind.”

“That sounds fun. Drew loved to ski.”

“We’ll have to teach Abby.”

I laughed. “You, not we. I managed to get up and stay up a few times, but I am not the expert.”

“You can teach her to cook, I’ll teach her to water ski.”

“Deal.” Separate activities seemed like a good idea.

“Breakfast was incredible.”

“Thanks.” I tucked a strand of hair that had escaped my ponytail behind my ear, but the wind blew it right back into my face. “I really like working there. I’m so glad Georgia suggested it to me.”

“How long have you been there?”

“Since spring, when they got busy. I’m not sure what I’ll do this winter when it slows down. I’m dreading it, actually. Abby will be in school full time, and it will just be me at home alone.” This was something else I hadn’t talked about with anyone, how worried I was that the gray skies and cold weather and silent hours would set me spiraling into depression. “I always thought I’d have another baby to take care of, but life saw things differently.”

“You’re still young, Hannah.”

I shook my head. “I’m really not. And I feel even older than I am.” Please don’t go Grief Police on me and tell me I’m being ridiculous, I begged him silently. This isn’t the life I chose. It was handed to me and I’m doing the best I can.

But he didn’t say anything more, just sipped his wine and looked out at the horizon. I was grateful.

“What about you?” I asked. “Think maybe you’ll get married now that you’re back? Have a family? Abby won’t have any siblings so she needs some cousins.”

“That seems to be a popular topic of discussion around here,” Wes said, shaking his head, “but I really have no idea.”

“Small town. We like to know everyone’s business.” I smiled. “Hey, what about CB? I saw your initials carved with hers on the door of the shed. Maybe she’s still around.”

He groaned. “Is that still there? Jesus. That had to be twenty years ago.”

Hugging my knees, I leaned forward. “First love?”

“Not even.” He hesitated, as if he were trying to decide whether to confess something.

“Come on,” I cajoled, carefully reaching out of the canoe, and splashing water toward him. “Tell me. I’ve been spilling my guts for an hour.”

“First kiss.”

I squealed. “And?”

He cringed. “It’s too embarrassing.”

“Wes, I had a completely humiliating breakdown in front of you last night. I got snot on my arm.”

“This is worse.”

“Get it out. You’ll feel better.”

“Let’s just say it was a very awkward, very fast experience.”

I gasped. “You lost your virginity to her?”

“No. Just my dignity.”

Laughing, I tilted my head back and felt the sun on my face, the wind in my hair, and something like joy in my heart.

It had been a long time.

Accidental Man Whore by: Katherine Stevens






Title: Accidental Man Whore
Author: Katherine Stevens
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 10, 2017





Blurb


Ben Wright
isn’t an escort.




Except when
he is.




All he
wants is to make some extra money to pay off his dad’s medical bills. He never
intended to be tied to beds while making the Benjamins.




Miryam
Wexler never intended to be dumped by her fiancé before their wedding.




But she
was.




Now all she
wants is to put her life back together and not tell her grandmother about her
humiliation.




He needs
money and she needs a stand-in fiancé. They can help each other, if they don’t
kill each other first. Two people with double lives equals four times the chaos
and four times the comedy.


The blurb caught my attention right away. This is a funny romantic comedy. Ben is hilarious, sexy and sweet. He would do anything for the people he loves. Miryam is wound a little tight and needs to loosen up. Good thing she meets Ben, he is everything she never knew she wanted in a relationship.
You will definitely laugh! #4wineglasses

Excerpt

I am not a
male escort.
Okay, technically
I am a male escort in the sense that I take money from women to go out with
them and sometimes have sex with them. But it didn’t start out that way. I own
my own business, for Pete’s sake. It’s not turning a huge profit yet, but it’s
mine and I don’t have to answer to anyone. Now I have a madam and a Little
Black Book. Except I couldn’t find a real little black book, so my escort
contacts are scrawled across the pages of the October 2016 Men’s Health that I
hide in a kitchen drawer. My whoring schedule is written on a Chinese takeout
menu.
Life used
to be simple. I barely remember that life now. The past several months are a
blur of lies, and sex, and more lies, and a lot more sex, and yarmulkes. Now
I’m standing at my door with some eager beaver Miami detective flashing his
badge in my face and wanting to know why they found my contact info in a
madam’s office during a prostitution bust. I don’t have an answer that won’t
land me in jail. I missed the hooker orientation where they tell you to have
prepared statements for events like this.
How did it
start? How did I go from a guy who waters plants for living to a part-time
escort? I would like to say it started with a woman, but it didn’t. It’s kind
of a funny story. I took money to bang chicks for my dad. It’s only a little
less creepy than it sounds. I wonder if this cop will get a laugh out of it.








Author Bio

When
Katherine Stevens isn’t writing, she can usually be found opening juice boxes
and looking for lost shoes. Her kids keep her quite busy and always zig-zagging
across the line of sanity. She is a lifelong Texan with a terrible sense of
direction and even worse memory. She thinks life is entirely too hard if you
don't laugh your way through it.



As a child, she dreamed of being the most sarcastic astronaut in history, but
her poor math skills and aversion to dehydrated food kept her out of the space
program. Now she writes to pass the time until NASA lowers their standards.
Your move, NASA.
