Shattered Innocence by Alexis Noelle

Growing up poor and with a set of parents who couldn’t care less about her, Jessica 
Evans was on her own. She knew she wanted better and was determined to make 
it through college. Her only problem was that she was broke, and college was 
expensive. That’s when she was introduced to the world of depravity and scandal 
Damon Shaw has just been assigned to take over the day-to-day operations of the 
escort service where he’s has been working for almost five years. He immediately 
bumps heads with the sexy and stubborn Jessica. Damon is determined to show 
Jessica who is in control and make her follow his every instruction.
When the two get together, sparks begin to fly. Jessica and Damon will challenge and 
enrage each other at every turn. The sting of words and the temptation of seduction 
are ever present between them. Damon is not at all what he seems. When all hell 
breaks loose, will Damon and Jessica make it or will she send him packing?
that she currently resides in.

When I hear Lo bang at the door again, I’m ready to kill her. Hoping she will go away I don’t make any moves to get up, then I hear the banging again. I slowly get up, throw on my shorts, and open the door. I’m ready to give her hell. Until I see Damon standing there.
He reaches down and grabs my right hand lifting it toward his face. My legs almost give out as I watch him insert each of my fingers into his mouth and suck on them.
“The phone wasn’t enough for me.” He backs me into my room, closing the door and locking it again. Damon steps forward and I’m now pressed against the door. “I can’t wait too long to bury my aching dick inside you. I do need to taste that beautiful fucking pussy, though.” He drops down in front of me, yanks my shorts down, and I step out of them quickly. His hands skim up my legs hooking his arms around the back of my knees. I almost fall from the lack of balance when he lifts them up and rests my legs on his shoulders.
His nose runs along my inner thigh and my body heats almost to the point of pain. Damon runs his tongue slowly up the length of my pussy stopping at my clit and sucking it into his mouth. I lift my arms above my head and grab onto the doorframe for support. In doing this I thrust myself toward him more and he groans in appreciation. His fingers join his mouth going to town on my already sensitive area. Before I know what hits me, my legs are starting to tremble in anticipation of my impending orgasm. When he pulls away from me, I whine in disappointment.
He untangles my legs from his shoulders, and stands up. As his arms come up, grab the hem of my shirt and lift it over my head. “How is it possible that I missed you so fucking much when I just saw you earlier.”
I smile, not knowing how to respond to his declaration of feelings. Damon takes my hand and leads me over to my bed, stopping just at the edge of it. My back is now to his front and I can feel his erection pressed against my ass through the thin shorts he has on. I reach behind me and hook my thumbs into his waistband and slowly lower them and myself to the floor. When I stand back up I do it slowly making sure to stick my ass out and trail it over his body.
His fingers grip my hips. “I would love to fucking cherish every inch of you but I want you too damn bad.” Before I can even think of a response, he pulls back and slams into me. “God damn perfect.”

Rocky Mountain Romance Giveaway

Title: Rocky Mountain Romance
 Author: Vivian Arend 
 Release Date: October 21, 2014 
Genre: Contemporary Romance


 Melody went with Steve willingly, around the side of the barn to where his truck and a horse trailer waited. He helped her into the driver side and she slid into the middle seat, checking her watch to make sure she didn’t get too far behind schedule. No way did she want another repeat of her hellish Monday. “I’ve got thirty minutes tops, otherwise I need to phone the clinic and let them know I’ll be late.” “You won’t be late,” he promised. They rattled down a short side road but instead of turning toward the highway, Steve took them along a back trail that led through the trees into a clearing at the side of wide-open ranch land. Nothing lay before them but miles of low rolling hills. To the west, the Rocky Mountains rose above to the sky, the craggy peaks decorated with a tiny dusting of white in the highest cracks and crannies. The tree line broke off to expose granite greys and flashes of white quartz. It was an amazing view, and she was glad it was something she got to see every day of her life. She was still staring in admiration when Steve parked the truck and jerked open the door. Melody followed him out, but couldn’t see any signs of an animal that needed attention. “Do you want me to be a veterinary to the squirrels?” she teased. He whirled, catching her under the hips and pulling her against his body so he could kiss her fiercely. Her back pressed against the cold metal of the horse trailer as his overheated body met hers. “You’re driving me crazy,” he confessed when he finally let her breathe. “I’ve been aching to touch you since the weekend. I need to be inside you.” Melody didn’t have the words to protest, especially not when he put his lips to her neck and sucked. A flash of heat went from his mouth through her entire system, and she clutched his shoulders. She was in motion again, this time her feet on the ground as his hands scrambled at her belt buckle. “I want you right now,” he demanded. The clock was ticking, but his hands were doing incredible things even as Melody tried to make the right decision. “Oh, God. Here? You’re not serious, Steve, right out in the open—?” He shoved her jeans down to her ankles. He stripped off his shirt, dropping it on top of the wheel guard of the trailer while she stood, pants around her ankles, admiring the broad bands of muscles on his torso. Then she was on top of his shirt, her knees spread wide as he pulled her forward to his eager mouth. Her ankles were trapped together by her pants, but Steve didn’t seem to care. Melody shoved her hands into his hair to catch her balance, but there was no catching her breath as he ate greedily. His tongue danced over her clit until she was gasping, the sound loud in contrast to the wind in the trees behind them. Everything that had to be done that day vanished as her world closed on this time, this place. Summary Second chances are the sweetest—and the hottest. It took a spectacularly embarrassing break-up to knock Steve Moonshine Coleman off his lazy butt. In the ten months since that night, he's changed his ways. Now that Melody's back in town, it's time for this sweet-talking cowboy to convince her to get back in the saddle with him. A return to her veterinary position in Rocky Mountain House was always in the cards for Melody Langley. Getting back together with Steve? Never part of the plan. He had lots of potential but zero ambition, and there's no way she'll accept anything less than a man who can keep up with her, in and out of bed. But the new-and-improved cowboy is impossible to resist, so Melody issues a challenge. Three months to prove he's reformed. Three months of Steve orchestrating one sexual indulgence after another--‪wicked distractions from the old boys' club Melody faces at work and Steve's growing responsibilities‬. He's got one shot to prove with more than words what's in his heart and soul.

 Add it on Goodreads  

 She’s a spoiled shopaholic with daddy issues. He’s a socially conscious vegetarian who doesn’t hide his disdain for people who come from the trappings of wealth. Of course, none of that would have mattered if Chloe could have just left her summer fling with Chase behind her without a glance back—something that will prove impossible when the consequences of that fling rear their head. Particularly one consequence; one with ten fingers, ten toes, and the potential to turn Chloe’s privileged life upside down. But deciding what to do about her unexpected pregnancy is only one of Chloe’s problems. When Chase moves in across the hall, pretending that their one night together didn’t mean anything will be the hardest thing she’s ever had to do. Especially when that night meant more to her than she’d ever want to admit out loud. Chase is determined to make her see that they could be so much more than a mindless fling; and a girl who’s used to getting her way will find Chase’s determination hard to resist when love is at stake.

*Excerpt from Brat*
By then we’d finished eating, and when the waitress asked about dessert we both declined. We traded glances across the table, and I could tell Chase was as anxious to get on with the reason for our little date in the first place. The waitress brought the check, and after arguing for five minutes over who would pay, Chase physically wrestled it from my hand. “I think I can afford a steak and a salad,” he grumbled once he’d overpowered me. “Relax, princess, this one’s on me.” After he paid, we left the restaurant and took our time walking toward Chase’s car. The sun had set and the night was clear and balmy, knocking off the chill of the restaurant comfortably. Once inside the car, Chase turned the engine on and then faced me, his stare pointed. “What is this, Chloe?” he asked, finally cutting right to the chase. “I know we said what happened this summer would be a one-time thing, and I can see how my showing up here might have shocked you. Maybe I was a little too forward, and my talking about having something more between us than a one night stand might have freaked you out a bit. I don’t blame you. It freaks me out, too. Neither of us has the rosiest past, and we couldn’t be more different as people.” He leaned toward me over the middle dash, one hand coming up to the nape of my neck. His fingers slid through my hair, trailing down to my bare shoulder, sending little shivers down my spine, which curled in my middle and shot down straight between my legs. I swallowed noisily as he came closer, his lips brushing my ear. “But damn it, Chloe, I can’t get the smell of you out of my head, or the taste of you off my tongue.” A gasp caught in my throat, and I couldn’t pull away from him. His lips found my neck, his breath racing over my skin. He kissed me there, tracing a path down toward my shoulder and one of the thin straps holding my dress up. “Chase,” I whimpered as he kissed my shoulder, his fingertips causing goose bumps to break out over my arm. “I know it’s crazy,” he murmured, “but don’t you remember how good we were together?” I shivered, remembering a tangle of arms and legs and the humid mists of the rainforest. My thighs clenched at the memory of how he’d felt between them. “Yes,” I whispered, “I do.” Chase’s lips found my jawline, tracing a slow path toward my mouth. “I remember, too,” he sighed. “Kissing you, touching you, untying the strings of that sexy little bikini of yours.” He gave my spaghetti strap a little tug for emphasis, just as I turned my head toward his. “That pretty little sound you made in the back of your throat when I touched you. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it … about you. What about you? Do you ever think about it? About me?” “All the time,” I whispered against his lips just before he kissed me. It had all started with the worst first date ever, and ended on something of a dare …

Unbearable By Alaska Angelini

In the eyes of society, I’m the perfect man. Charitable, kind hearted…a role model to all.

For the ones seeking death, I’m their salvation. They think when they come to my door that I’ll assist with the one thing they’re afraid to do alone. Die. Little do they know, I have a lot more in store than a one way ticket to heaven or hell. Four weeks of being my slave and I’ll grant their suicidal wish…or so they think.

When Death sought Diane, I wasn’t leaving her a choice to seek out my help. Her pain and determination was more than I’d ever seen and I knew I was the only one who could save her. Even if it meant becoming the hell she was so desperate to escape.

But will it be enough to make her choose life? Will I be able to let her go when she gets better? Or will the Master in me deny freedom to the perfect slave?

WARNING: THIS IS A DARK EROTIC ROMANCE AND CONTAINS DISTURBING SITUATIONS, DUBIOUS CONSENT, EXPLICIT SEXUAL CONTENT, AND VERY GRAPHIC LANGUAGE. (Also includes knife play/blood play, consensual cutting, and breath play. If you are not comfortable with these situations, DO NOT read this book!

Sami's Review:
Diane is lost. Having grown up in the foster care system she finally has found her happiness in the form of her husband and her daughter. When they are both ripped away from her in one fell swoop she is left wading through a dark depression and wanting to end her life. After several botched attempts she is hospitalized and through the grapevine hears of The Master. The Master is known to all who want to end their lives. He is there to facilitate that end and Diane is thinking of seeking him out. The choice is ripped from her when he comes looking for her. What awaits for Diane once she is with the Master is not anything like what she thought and even he is surprised by his reaction to her. The Master has made it his mission to save as many lost souls as possible to help not only them but him with his grief as well. What transpires between the Master and Diane is almost more than he can handle. Never has he veered so off course before than he does with her. Will Diane and the Master become each oth3er’s salvation from the dark void that threatens to consume them both? 


“Your death will come when I say. Maybe sooner than you think. Maybe years from now. You’re the worst fucking slave I’ve ever had. You don’t listen for shit. Why should I give you what you want? You deserve nothing. What gives you the right for a sense of entitlement? Nothing,” I exploded. 

“You’re already dead, remember? I fucking killed you when you walked through my door. What you suffered with your family is great, but not more than others have had to endure. I meant to show you that, but you’ve ruined it.”

A sob broke through, a scream taking over it at the end. Her head shook back and forth and I grabbed it, holding her still to look up at me.

“You want to be free, then become my slave for real. Bend to my every command. Address me as you’re meant to.” I licked over her bottom lip and she trembled underneath me. “You bow to me and I will grant your wish.”

“I hate you,” she gritted out. “I hate you!”

A laugh did come then. “I didn’t expect you to make it easy, but if you want death, you’ll endure the perils of hell first. The only way to experience the true meaning of that is to survive what I have in store. The real me. The one you’ve only caught glimpses of. And not just sexually, either. It’s that, or you can rot away in this room until you die of old age. No one will look for you, Diane. As far as anyone is concerned, you either ran away or offed yourself where no one could find you. They already expect it. They’ll never know to look here. If Jaime comes to your pretty little mind and you think him picking you up will lead police to where you are, you’re wasting your time. He dropped you off at your new safehouse. Doreen will testify to you showing up. But then, you left.”
She jerked.

“You left and disappeared, slave. You’re dead,” I whispered. “Just like you wanted to be.”

“I want you dead. I’ll kill you,” she exploded. “I’ll fucking—”

“You’ll what?” My fingers pushed in harder until she was crying out. “You’ll obey is what you’ll do. Now, say it. Say I’m your Master.”

A long, heartbreaking sound had the crying coming back.

“Speak.” My hand slapped her face — not hard enough to hurt her, but definitely enough to bring her back around.

“Never. Fucking, never.”

I ripped her from the bed, wrapping my arm around her throat as I let her toes search the ground for footing. I knew I was choking her, but she could still get air. Nails tore into my arm as I walked over and grabbed the remote. As I hit the buttons, changing the disc, Diane began to still in my arms. I knew she thought I was putting on more grisly suicides, but she was wrong. So fucking wrong.

Laughter filled the room, the sweet sound of a child. Her child. Weight pulled against my arm as her legs temporarily gave out. Like someone had hooked her to life support, she turned into a mad woman, giving me the fight of my life as she tried to flee.

“Mommy! Look!” Dark curls bounced as Caylee ran closer to the handheld camera, holding up a new doll. Wrapping paper was everywhere on the floor and the blue, red, green, and white lights from the tree blurred in the background.

“Look at that, Caylee.” Diane walked onto the screen and a man laughed. The voice was close and it was evident he was the one holding the camera.

“No more,” she said, slowing. Sobs were shaking her so hard that I felt them deep within my soul. Fingers pushed into my bloody skin, holding on for dear life. The pain I had felt only moments ago was nonexistent as I watched her heart break right in front of me.

My grip loosened as I pushed her to her knees and positioned myself behind her, still keeping my arm around her throat, just in case.

“Kneeling is crucial. I expect you to do this for me. Now, embrace your memories, slave. That’s your daughter. You turning your back on her is the worst thing you can do. Face your fears,” I said, turning my voice into a whisperer. “Look at how beautiful she is.”

Weight rested into me as she continued to hold on and watch. The fight in her was gone as she stared at the TV, crying. The contrast of the laughter and sobs broke through my walls and I made my other arm wrap around her stomach as I pulled her closer between my thighs. To have seen her, to have known her in her happy past, to have had something like that for myself…

Cover Reveal~Where There's a Will by Stacy Gail

Miranda Brookhaven returned to Bitterthorn, Texas to fix the past. Years ago, her father used her teenage romance with Coe Rodas to steal the prototype for a groundbreaking new automotive invention. Now her father's dead, and thanks to the convoluted will he left behind, she's stuck in town until she rights the wrong that lost her the man she loved.
Coe learned early on that life never goes according to plan. His dreams of hitting it big vanished when Miranda all but invited her father to take the only thing of value he ever had. But now the once-pampered princess is holed up in a condemned trailer on the edge of town...and everything he thought he knew about her—and about what happened between them back then—seems completely wrong.
Miranda's determined to give back to Coe all that he lost. If she can do that, maybe she can move on from the past. But Coe seems to be more interested in their rekindled passion than claiming what she thinks he deserves. She's got sixty days to convince him to cough up evidence that he's the original inventor—after that, the only way to transfer the patent rights over to him would be to make him part of the family, and she's not sure her heart can take another hit.

A sudden melody murmured from her purse slung over her shoulder. For a baffled 

moment her brain scrambled to identify the tune before she dug for her phone. Was that John 

Mayer’s “Your Body Is A Wonderland”? Great song, but for it to spontaneously sound off like it 

was a ringtone...

She stared at the screen in disbelief. It was a ringtone. 


Under his name was his picture set as the background—hair mussed, chest bare. Sleepy. 

Smiling. Satisfied.

“Holy shit, he took a selfie.” Then she clapped a hand over her mouth, horrified she’d 

said it out loud. “I’m so sorry, please excuse—”

“Not bad, as selfies go. I’ve never taken a good one—can’t get far enough away from the 

damn camera to look any good. Better answer before he hangs up.” Esme took one last peek at 

Coe’s picture before heading for the kitchen.

Miranda was still trying to get her jaw re-hinged—and recover from the notion of what 

sort of selfie Esme might have taken—when she got the phone to her ear. “‘Your Body Is A 


“What? I hear that in my head every time I touch you.”

“Oh.” She put a hand to her idiotic heart as it melted. No doubt her panties would be 

next. “Then it should be the ringtone for me.”

“It is. If you were to call me, I mean. That’s the song I have for you on my phone, which, 

by the way, I always have with me. So I promise I’ll pick up, if...well, if you ever need to call 


Hint, hint. “Which I can do, now that I see you’ve put your number in my phone.”

“Right. You needed to have my number, just in case your car breaks down again. Or if 

you need me for anything else, like to kill a bug, or open a jar. Or to talk. You know. Whatever. 

Whenever. You can now call me. I’ll always answer when you call, Miranda. Always.”

Her throat squeezed tight. “Thanks. That’s good to know.”

“You really should put a passcode on your phone, now that I’m thinking about it. I could 

do that for you, if you don’t know how. But you’d have to, you know, bring me the phone so I 

could take care of it for you.”

In other words, he wanted to see her face-to-face. And damn it, she suddenly wanted to 

see him. “I’m still at Esme’s. Where are you?”

“I’m where I need to be.” She heard him blow out a breath. “I’m outside Esme’s trailer.”

She glanced through the curtain, saw his car behind hers and nearly choked when her 

heart bounded into her throat. 

“I’ll be right out.”

Sometimes trust is the toughest lesson to learn.

Sophie Shaw is days away from signing a contract that will fulfill her dream of owning a vineyard. For her, it’s a chance to restart her life and put past tragedies to rest. But Duncan Jamieson’s counter offer blows hers out to sea.

Duncan still finds Sophie as appealing as he had during boyhood vacations to the lake. Older and wiser now, he has his own reasons for wanting the land. His offer, however, hinges on a zoning change approval.

Bribery rumors threaten the deal and make Sophie wary of Duncan, yet she cannot deny his appeal. When her journalistic research uncovers a Jamieson family secret, trust becomes the hardest lesson for them both.

Sami's Review:
Sophie has suffered one of the greatest losses imaginable to a woman yet she continues to fight on. Not only for her children and her family but in the hopes that by making one of her dreams come true she will honor her son as well. Duncan has also suffered loss the loss of his wife was just the wakeup call he needed to start living his life better. Though he is wealthy and grew up with both parents he has always lived in the shadow of his brother Trent in his mother’s eyes. When she comes to him for a favor in regards to Trent he jumps on the opportunity to not only help his brother but to hopefully become closer with his mother as well. He never imagined that bidding on the land in North Ridge would cause so much pain to others as well as bring him back into the life of his teenage crush. Sophie is drawn to Duncan but how can she trust him? He lied to her before and she does not trust easy. He also managed to outbid her for her ancestral land and the hopes she had of making her dream come true. As always there is more to both sides of the story than meets the eye. Secrets long buried will surface and life will forever change.

I’ve been a b****. I know this. It’s not something that I’m particularly proud of and it’s not something that I had intended to stop being. At least, I hadn’t until recently. I got what older people call “a taste of my own medicine.” I don’t think I deserved that taste. I have lived through a disgustingly dirty sea of pain and horror. I wanted others to feel that pain, know that fear. People would understand better if they knew my story. Sable probably wouldn’t care after everything that I did to her, everything I put her through. I wish I would’ve had the courage to let her know what was going on, instead of being the coward I was and giving her a glimpse of my pain. 

I am Jenna Nielson Turner. I am the daughter of an abusive, alcoholic mother and the product of a sexual assault or so I’m told. If that wasn’t enough, add to it one of the members of the faculty here at Boardan High School believes I am to be his personal love slave until I graduate. So, yeah, I’m a b****, but I have some pretty good reasons to be. Being that person helps me cope with the hell that is my world, not just my d*** life. 

Is it possible for one that has this as the introduction to their "Who am I?" essay to be open to love and be loved? Will she be able to except what is necessary for her to change? Or will she allow the surprises that come into her pathway to be the needed excuse to be just who she describes?

Sami's review:
Alone, misunderstood, angry and carrying a huge secret are all words that can describe Jenna. Jenna has a reason for being the way she is. Not that she will ever tell anyone what those reasons are because the last thing she wants is pity she would rather be known as the queen bitch that is title she can deal with. After being sentenced to serve community service she just wants to get it over with and get on with the rest of her messed up life. Derrick Justice just happens to be working at the same place where Jenna is sent to do her services at. On first sight Jenna wants him and BAD! Derrick wants to believe there is something more to Jenna but from what he has heard and seen he just can’t let himself go there. Dealing with friends who turn out to be more like enemies, an alcoholic mother, a n absentee father, a teacher who thinks she is a personal sex slave is enough but not ALL that Jenna faces. Surprises are right around the corner that will drastically change everything. This book is full of surprises and will keep you turning the pages even after it comes to an end thirsting for more of the drama and suspense.
