RELEASE BLITZ - Touchdown (Vegas Aces: The Quarterback #5) by Lisa Suzanne


Release Date: October 21

As much as I’ve coached the pro football quarterback to believe he always has a choice, this time I’m the one backed into a corner.

My biggest fears have come true. I’m an adult living with my parents as I contemplate my future. I’ve given up everything to make the ultimate sacrifice, but at some point I need to put what happened behind me.

It’s time to imagine new dreams, create new goals, and cheer for touchdowns that aren’t scored by Jack Dalton.

Maybe then I can pick up the pieces I left behind.

TOUCHDOWN is the fifth book in the VEGAS ACES: THE QUARTERBACK series. 
This series must be read in order.

RELEASE BLITZ - Red Sin (Sin #1) by Aleatha Romig


Release Date: October 19

Red is the color of blood, sacrifice, danger, and courage. It’s also associated with heat, passion, and sexuality. When two people meet unexpectedly with an inexplicable attraction that defies common understanding...it can be called RED SIN.

Julia and Van found one another in a shaken snow globe. Stranded in a blizzard, they embraced being two individuals with no last names. The plan was to walk away from each other with no regrets—until that plan changed.

Julia’s life was delivered a staggering blow the day she discovered her fiancé’s infidelity. The night she met a handsome stranger, one who showed her the possibility of a life filled with more than the fulfillment of expectations, she took a chance.

When it comes to business, Donovan Sherman is a wolf—a bloodthirsty carnivore who leaves wounded prey and victims in his wake. He learned from the best, his onetime nemesis and now-mentor, Lennox Demetri, who showed him that opportunities are only ripe for those willing to risk it all, a lesson Donovan took to heart.

With Julia McGrath, Donovan must decide if this beautiful woman who showed him the meaning of red sin will fall victim as his prey or if after experiencing the unbridled passion, there is more that he wants.

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new romantic-suspense novel in the world of high finance, where success is sweet and revenge is sweeter.

*RED SIN is a full-length novel and book one in the Sin Series.

RELEASE BLITZ - Head Over Feels by S.L. Scott


Release Date: October 15

My approach to dating has served me well.

No hassles.
No strings.
No heartache.


As a prominent divorce attorney and Manhattan’s most eligible bachelor, I’m as sought after in the courtroom as I am in the bedroom. Winning in both arenas is my specialty.

The only thing I ever lost was the nerve to tell the girl of my dreams how I felt about her. Seven years later, I might be getting the opportunity when she moves into my spare bedroom.

Though I used to laugh at the notion of love, her bright blue eyes, soft heart, and quick wit has me . . . feeling things. New emotions.

And I’m starting to realize that if there’s one woman who can change my confirmed bachelor ways, it’s Tealey Bell, aka my Achilles’ heel.

So when did it all go wrong?

For that answer, we must go back to beginning when I promised one friend a favor and fell head over feels for another.

Excerpt

A gentle knock on the door has me sitting up in bed. “Yes?”

“You still up?” Rad whispers from the other side of the door.

Not sure what he’s doing here, I push off the bed and answer it, leaning my cheek against the painted wood. “Hi.”

He smiles. “Hi. The day got away from me before I could talk to you.”

“About anything specifically?” My stomach flutters with the butterflies I brought in from the beach.

His gaze drops to our feet. Everything slows when his eyes meet mine again, and he says, “I’ve been thinking about you.”

I lick my lips and swallow as my spine straightens, not wanting to be slouching during such a confession. Gripping the door, I ask, “You have?”

“I have, and I was thinking . . . wondering . . . Well, I haven’t exactly used words to show you what I’m thinking. And I want to change that. I’ve held back in fear of you saying no. But I’ve been thinking about us and the possibility of more. More of us.” He looks down briefly, and if I didn’t know Rad as well as I do, I’d think he was nervous. But then he looks back up with no hesitation. “I want to know if you’ve been thinking about me . . . about us . . . like that as well?”

Do I confess my sin? Tell him how I’ve started to fantasize about him? What turns him on and hoping that damn towel would drop? And that with every touch, cuddle, and smile, I’ve felt more and more attracted to him?

Or do I shut this conversation down and bury my feelings in the sand tomorrow when I go to the beach?

His eyes search mine in earnest, so I say, “I . . .” I take a quick breath and exhale. “I have thought about you. A lot, in fact.” I didn’t know I could shock Rad, but I managed it.

“Really?”

I’ll blame the alcohol tonight for my slippery tongue and deal with the repercussions in the morning. “Terribly naughty thoughts.”

"Even Better."

RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - Kelly: Dark Irish Mafia Romance (O'Sullivan Brothers #2) by Rie Warren

Title: KELLY
Series: The O'Sullivan Brothers #2
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: Dark Irish Mafia Romance
Release Date: October 4, 2021


He’s the underboss in his mafia brotherhood, and women have no place in his world. As a good girl with an overprotective dad, she’s been warned against his kind time and again. But when her father’s corruption shatters her world, he all but forces her into the mafioso’s bed.

KELLY

I’m a busy friggin’ man and priority number one is destroying the south-of-the-border bastardos who’ve been dealing blow on our turf. Then I find out someone who’s supposed to be in our pocket is on the take with this rival cartel, and things go from bad to FUBAR.

That backstabbing jagoff owes me big. Unfortunately, the only thing he’s got to offer is the one thing I don’t want. His daughter. Now I’m fighting to keep control of our territory and I’ve got to babysit this beautiful, mouthy babe. I’ll keep Marlowe as collateral, and I’ll take what I want, when I want, whether she likes it or not.

MARLOWE

After my dad’s secrets and lies blow up in his face, he bargains with the only priceless gem he has . . . me. He practically gives me away to none other than Kelly O’Sullivan, a rough-talking mafia man he’s warned me about for years.

I’m infuriated I’ve been put in this dicey position. It’s my father who should pay the price for his double dealing, not me. It’s impossible. Kelly is impossible. He’s intimidating. Overbearing. Scary. Sexy. He dominates me from day one, taking a wrecking ball to my defenses and wreaking havoc with my desires.

I’m pretty sure I hate him. I definitely don’t trust him. But when the cartel makes it clear they want me too, what other choice do I have?

Kelly is book 2 in the O’Sullivan Brothers Irish mafia series. No cliffhangers. No cheating. Includes sizzling hot scenes. Can be read as a standalone.


Solid, entertaining, kept me up late at night reading, I thought this was a fantastic second book for the O'Sullivan Brothers series. The character development is on point, with Marlowe bound and determined to not make life easy for Kelly, given how they ended up in each other's orbit. Not gonna lie, Kelly is all kinds of intimidating, but the more she's spending time with him, the more she gets to see a different side that rarely, if ever, is shown.






“We’re having this out right now.” Kelly whirled me around and left me panting in pure fury.

“Oh yeah? Are you going to gag me again? Or can I actually talk this time?” I sniped. “Because so far you’ve held me at gunpoint—”

“Not really.” His jaw bulged.

“Taken me under duress and kissed me against my will!”

“Against your will, huh?” His voice emerged deceptively silky. “Where’s the woman who held a dagger at my balls then?”

Our labored breathing beat across the air as we stared one another down. 

I tossed my hair over a shoulder. “Do you want to talk now or just play with knives?”

He unsheathed his wicked matte black blade with a hiss of metal against leather. “I know what my vote is.” 

Kelly aimed a sinful smile at me when he said that.

Well, he was not about to intimidate me. 

I marched right into the bedroom, whipped my dagger from my bag, and spun to find him stalking straight after me. And his hooded eyes gleamed as sinisterly as the KA-BAR.

He lowered into a predator’s stance but didn’t immediately lunge for me. 

We circled one another warily while warring compulsions coursed through me. To cut him, to gut him . . . to hurl the knife away then throw myself at him to get another taste of his lips. 

Crouched low, he looked even bigger, and power radiated off of him. 

I darted into his space—seeking to slash him—but he easily parried my thrust before retreating. 

Losing some of my poise, I wildly lashed at him again. 

That time, Kelly’s huge blade clashed against mine, and the metal screeched together. Ultimately, he pushed my knife up so I lost all leverage and nearly toppled onto my ass. 

I jumped back into fighting mode, flinging my hair from my face and jabbing quickly at his midsection. 

His nostrils flaring, he dodged each well-aimed stab. 

The ease with which he deflected me was infuriating. 

“Come on already. Give me your best shot!” I shouted in frustration.

So far, I’d been the aggressor, and he’d agilely avoided each of my lunges. 

More quickly than a man as big as him should be able to move, he advanced. The massive KA-BAR swirled nimbly in front of me in a flash of metal.

When he retreated, cool air fluttered along my torso. 

In the blink of an eye, he’d shredded my blouse, and the fabric hung limply from my shoulders. 

“How’s that for my best shot?” 

Before I could react to the shock of his brazen bladework, he had that knife against me again. He flicked the black steel so fast, I felt just the whisper of cold metal against my flesh before he withdrew again. 

I looked down in disbelief as my bare breasts jiggled, my pearly white bra in ruins. He’d practically denuded me without inflicting a single nick to my flesh.

Slowly lifting my head, I stared at the man. 

A smug smirk curved his mouth, and heat spread from his half-mast eyes to permeate my entire body.

Keeping his gaze snared, I wore a smirk of my own, if little else. With a sinuous roll of my shoulders, I let the torn blouse and tattered bra slip down my arms and off my fingers. 

Then I sauntered to the broad-shouldered, bronze-haired giant, clasping my dagger and dancing it across the air between us. 

Kelly kept his blade by his side that time. 

He seemed entranced by my bouncing breasts and obnoxiously tight nipples, but I wasn’t foolish enough to think he’d give up all control quite so easily. 

When I reached him, I laid the flat side of my slim blade against the evident erection in his faded jeans. “Did you really want my dagger at your dick again?”

He clenched his KA-BAR but remained otherwise unmoving. 

“As hot as this is, I’d rather have your mouth on my cock. At least with you sucking me, you won’t be able to talk back.”

The deep drugging tone of his voice almost robbed me of breath. His filthy comment should make me want to slice my blade into him. But it didn’t.

I drew the dagger up then flipped the tip beneath the hem of his T-shirt. “Well, what’s good for the goose . . .”

He inhaled sharply as his arms flexed into dangerously hard weapons themselves. “Just don’t geld me.” 

I caressed his abs with my knife. “I wouldn’t dare.” 

It only took three deft slices of my blade to destroy his shirt like he’d done mine. He jerked the remnants off with an indrawn breath so every single muscle on his chest stamped into high tattooed relief.

The electric atmosphere between us transformed from fury to desperate fire. 

Feeling all superior with my more feminine dagger, I bragged, “You see? Bigger doesn’t always mean better.”

Another insidious smirk cut across his bearded face and then he placed his KA-BAR and the two guns onto his dresser within easy reach. 

He never once lost contact with my eyes as his hands moved to the waist of his jeans. 

In mouthwatering slow motion, Kelly popped his jeans open. He shucked them off along with everything else until he stood—hard, tall, inked, and majestic—in front of me.

“Bigger doesn’t mean better?” His eyebrow spiked high then he looked down at himself. “You sure about that?”

I followed the line of his sight as if magnetized. 

And then I felt faint.
