One kiss sends Leah Gorman’s life into a tailspin.

After years sacrificing herself for Reckless Beat, Leah needs to catch her breath. She has to escape the constant chaos and revive her frayed nerves.

Logan is exactly what she needs right now… Or is he? Her pleasure comes at a price, and she will be left to question every aspect of her life and what her future holds.

Broken Play: Birmingham Rebels by Samantha Kane ~ Review & Giveaway


Enter to Win a
Select Loveswept Ebook Bundle


BROKEN PLAY
Birmingham Rebels #1
Samantha Kane
Releasing Sept 1st, 2015


Perfect for fans of Shayla Black and Lexi Blake, the deeply sensual new Birmingham Rebels series introduces an unforgettable team of chiseled football gods—and the daring, provocative games they play behind closed doors.

Birmingham Rebels offensive linemen Beau Perez and Cass Zielinski are inseparable, on and off the field. Cass, the captain with the cowboy swagger, is a loose cannon. Beau, the veteran tight end, is cool under pressure. And ever since they were caught on tape in a steamy threesome, their exploits have fueled more than a few tabloid headlines—and naughty fantasies.

Marian Treadwell knows all about the video. And now that she’s the Rebels’ new assistant offensive coach, she can’t look at Beau and Cass without picturing their hard, naked bodies—with her pressed in between. Marian would like nothing more than to indulge those impulses, but she knows better than to get too close to her players, a bunch of adrenaline-fueled alpha males who don’t always follow the rules.

Just the thought of sharing the gorgeous yet guarded Marian drives Cass wild. At first, Beau isn’t sure she’s right for them . . . and lately, all he desires is a little alone time with Cass to explore their new intimacy. But it’s only a matter of time before Cass breaks through both of their defenses. Because when seduction is the game plan, he always plays to win.

Broken Play is intended for mature audiences.

Excerpt:


“Hey, sugar, come here often?” Jo Jo Jones said to her as he came around from the showers wearing nothing but a towel, his dark-cocoa skin starkly contrasting with the white terry cloth. Jo Jo was a great linebacker, but he had a death wish. He couldn’t stop smoking weed, and he liked to tease Marian. One of those was going to get him thrown out of the NFL, and the other was going to get him dead.
“Really?” Marian said with exaggerated disappointment. “You had the whole day to think of a come-on line, and that’s the best you could come up with?”
The guys all laughed and Jo Jo got snapped with a few towels. He laughed, too, as if he’d really been joking, which was good. Cass crossed beating him up off his to-do list.
“Okay, gentlemen—and I use the term loosely,” she said, teasing them. “Today is press day. You get to be smart and funny and irresistible for the press corps. Make yourselves pretty before you join us back on the sidelines.”
There were groans from all over the room. “Oh, man,” Tyler Oakes, team quarterback, said. “You have to, too, right?”
Marian frowned. “Hello? I’m already pretty.”
Cass laughed out loud with the rest of the team. “You sure are,” he said, loud enough for her to hear him. Her gaze darted over to him, as if she’d been avoiding looking at him but couldn’t help herself now. He was sitting there in his shorts and nothing else, sweating. Beau was leaning on the locker in front of him, similarly undressed. Cass looked at him, hoping to lead Marian’s eyes that way, too. Beau was sure enough pretty when his copper skin was all sweaty, his tats gleaming black and slick.
Marian cleared her throat and Cass turned back to her. “Uh,” she said, blinking nervously as she backed up, holding the door with her hand. “Thanks. Hurry up. Down on the field. Press. Bye.” She turned and hurried off, letting the door swing closed.
“That girl got it bad,” Jo Jo said with a whistle. “You gonna put her out of her misery, or let me pick up the pieces of her broken heart?”
“Do you have a death wish?” Cass asked quietly, rearranging his to-do list again. He took a sip of his water as he stared at Jo Jo over the top of the bottle. Jo Jo backed up, his hands in the air.
“No, sir,” he said, shaking his head. “Not me. I didn’t say anything.”
Beau laughed. “Chicken.”
Jo Jo grinned. “You got that right, my man. Smart chicken.” He laughed as he sat down and started to get dressed. “See, I’m gonna be the first one down there with Miss Marian, while you pigs still got to wash the dirt off.” He laughed again as he danced out of the way of Cass’s reaching hand. “None of that,” he chided him. “Miss Marian would be very put out if I appeared all bloody for the press.”
“We’ll just make sure you don’t appear at all,” Beau said, which made Cass feel better. Beau may not have been actively pursuing Marian, but he was definitely interested in her, thank God. Cass didn’t want to be with a woman without Beau. He hadn’t been for . . . hell, three years. There was something between Marian and Beau. He just had to push it past the edge of whatever it was and into sex. No, more than sex. He wanted more than sex with Marian and Beau. It was time for more.
Before he could digest that mind-boggling thought, Beau slapped his shoulder. “Come on, man,” he said. “We’ve got to shower and get down there before they miss us.”
“Coming,” Cass said. He put aside his confusing thoughts and focused on the upcoming interviews. He really hated the press.


Review:

It has been quite awhile since I have read a Samantha Kane book, after reading Broken Play, I am trying to figure out why?? This book was absolutely fantastic, sexy, cold shower-inducing, and it left me completely satisfied (just like Cass & Beau would-I am sure)

Cass & Beau are the bad-boys of football. Their reputations proceed them where ever they go. Marian knows all about their reputations and wants to be a part of all they can offer. Cass and Beau balance each other out, on the field and off. Where Cass is in your face aggressive, Beau has a more laid back and thoughtful approach. They have shared everything for years including women, but it isn't until Marian comes into their lives that they both realize what's been missing in their relationships ~ intimacy ~ with each other.
It seems they have both been holding back.

After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, she scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. She counts shooting vodka with a Ukranian mechanic in Antarctica, sipping yerba mate with gauchos in Chile and swilling XXXX with stationhands in Outback Australia among her accomplishments.

A British literature fanatic at heart, Lia considers Mr. Darcy and Edward Rochester as her fictional boyfriends. Her very patient husband doesn't mind. Much. When not torturing heroes (because c'mon, who doesn't love a good tortured hero?), Lia herds unruly chickens, camps, beach combs, daydreams about future books, wades through a mile-high TBR pile and schemes yet another trip. Right now, Icelandic hot springs and Scottish castles sound mighty fine.

Tough Love: An Ultimate Novel by Lori Foster ~ review

Tough Love
An Ultimate Novel
by Lori Foster
Release Date
08/25/2015


She's playing hard to get…to win the MMA fighter of her ultimate fantasies. 

Vanity Baker loves a good, clean match, but she's not above playing a little dirty. She's wanted Stack "The Wolf" Hannigan from day one. Seems as though the best way to corral the famously commitment-phobic fighter is to insist on keeping it casual. And her plan works—deliciously well—until Stack's past steps out of the shadows.

Stack learned early to stay free of attachments. But with sexy, forthright Vanity, he's the one always left wanting more. Then his troublemaking family comes back into the picture, threatening everything Stack cares about—Vanity included. Suddenly he realizes they're much more than friends with benefits. He's ready to go to the mat for her…but will it be in time to protect the woman who's tamed him for good?

Review:

For those of you who are fans of Lori Foster's Ultimate series, you know that Vanity & Stack have been dancing around each other for awhile now. We have seen peeks of this "dance" through out the series. At the end of book #2, Holding Strong, Vanity decides the only way to get what/who she wants is to be a bit devious. So she propositions Stack to be her date for Cannon & Yvette's wedding~with the promise of ending the date in bed together, hoping this will lead to a longer relationship, but understanding that if it doesn't work out at least she got her one night with Stack.

Tough Love begins with the wedding and the reader "feels" the sexual tension building between these two right away. Various interruptions, some scary, some hilarious, keep Stack & Vanity from "ending" their date. Their friends and Stack's crazy family get involved and the story switches between a "keystone cops" type scenario and a very real-life scary type. I personally love this in a story line! We also get glimpses of the other fighters and their goings on through out the book, it's nice to catch up with some favorite characters.

Vanity & Stack finally do get to "finish" their date...and then some! Damn! They are so hot together! Which of course leads to the conflict of Vanity's lie to Stack about how she has really felt about him all along and her manipulation of their relationship, with a death threat to Stack thrown in for good measure...lots going on in this story.

Book #3 in the Ultimate series, Tough Love, was freaking fantastic! I enjoyed every minute of it and look forward (like I know you all do) to Armie & Rissy's story, Fighting Dirty!

Hot & Bothered: Hostile Operations Team series book 8 by Lynn Raye Harris ~ Release Day Giveaway




Hot & Bothered
Hostile Operations Team Series - Book 8
By Lynn Raye Harris




Hot & Bothered


d8082-add-to-goodreads-button3

Synopsis

He can never have her. Having her means the end of his career in the Hostile Operations Team. But when he learns she’s carrying his child, he’ll have to make a choice… Ryan “Flash” Gordon has been drawn to Emily Royal bin Yusuf since the first moment he met her. But she’s a terrorist’s widow, which means she’s completely off-limits. A HOT special operator can never be with a woman whose name is on government watch lists the world over.

But when Emily begs him for just one night, he can’t refuse. The next morning, she’s gone. Not just from his bed, but from his life. Emily can never clear her name—or can she? When a rogue CIA operative offers her a chance to put her past behind her and do something for her country, she leaps at the opportunity—even though it means leaving behind the man she’s fallen in love with. But not before she lets herself have one night with him. One night with stunning consequences…



Hot & Bothered 01 (Canva-LRH)


Excerpt

“You went willingly. After…” He shook his head, his jaw hardening as he gazed down at her. He practically vibrated with anger. “I can’t believe you left like that. Do you know how worried Victoria’s been? How worried we’ve all been?”
Emily lifted a hand, but he recoiled from her as if he couldn’t bear for her to touch him. Hot tears pressed against her eyelids.
“I was trying to do the right thing—”
“The right thing?” He looked at her disbelievingly. “The right fucking thing wasn’t leaving people who care about you! It wasn’t leaving my bed in the middle of the night without a fucking word!”
She heard the clearing of throats and a muttered curse, and it hit her that he’d just revealed something that would have been better off kept secret. For his sake, not hers.

“Not here,” she said fiercely. “Not now.”
