Synopsis

Jess Foster is your typical party girl…or so it seems….
She’s got it all, money, looks, brains and sex appeal to rival any siren. Living in Manhattan with her best friend Lily, Jess enjoys the high life, toying with men and casting them aside, but behind the party girl faรงade is a broken, scared young woman who feels like she can’t confide in anyone. She hides it well until she spends the night with a sexy Italian player. 
Simon Mantovani doesn’t do relationships. 
He’s witnessed one woman he loves being broken beyond repair. He couldn’t protect her…and he will never let that happen again. He keeps his conquests to one night only, making sure to remove any emotional connection from the equation. That is until he’s introduced to a vixen that captures his attention. Convincing himself it’s a purely physical reaction, he embarks on a quest to get her out of his system…not so easy when you recognize the pain of a broken soul behind the most beautiful eyes you’ve ever seen.
Have Jess and Simon met their match in each other? Will they be able to forge something real together, or will their primal, undeniable attraction to each other be the very thing that rips them apart? Jess is a master of self-sabotage. Confronted with a decision that could change everything, will she put her trust in the man she so desperately wants?
A thrilling tale of caustic love between two people that swore never to go down this path. Jess and Simon will take you on a rollercoaster ride as they struggle to find their place in each other’s lives.
Sometimes love just isn’t enough…

Sanne's Review


Breathe, breathe... Ok here we go!

Holy mother of god, that first chapter was scorshing hot! I sat there in public! with a huge grin on my face the entire time... The chemistry that those two share is of the charts! 

This book will unleash your inner beast! I sooo wanted to smack the everloving crap out of them at times! They'll put you through the wringer allright! 

Oh and I loved, loved, loved how Simon attempts to put Jess in her place! It'll going to take a lot of manpower to do or not do so though! ;)

Brace yourself for a rollercoaster romance and make sure you don't got kids with you while reading, you'll find out soon enough why! 

Jess aka Jesster: Black hair, mile long legs and the female equivalent of a manwhore. Why you ask? You'll have to read and weep people, it is only fair you go through all those emotions too! ;)

Simon aka player: he is the definition of TDH (Tall, Dark and Handsome), he is an Italian hunk alpha that'll rock your world! 

Gavin aka F*ckface: The man from Jess her past and a HUGE part of why she is who she is now! 

All of Me – John Legend (Chapter 33) ===>>>>>> Perfect for this book, absolutely fitting!

I am really curious about the next book in which we will find out more about Sofia and Nate.

This book as a huge mindf*ck and I cursed like a sailor (wink wink) but it is a MUST READ, I promise you WILL NOT regret it!

Book Blurb

It was only supposed to be a one night thing…

Will Delaney and Gracie Alexander are little more than acquaintances when fate lands them in same place at the same time. One drunken hookup later, they decide that the best course of action for all involved is to pretend it never happened.

Will’s recently divorced. Gracie’s perennially single.

Upon first glance, they have absolutely nothing in common.

They both agree on one thing: they’re not looking for a relationship.

The only problem is that they can’t seem to stay away from each other.

Can two people who have sworn off love forever find it in the most unexpected setting?

excerpt

He took my hand in his and allowed me to lead him to my bedroom. If he had half a mind to try to make a move on me again, he swallowed it down. We stripped to our underwear, him waiting for me to climb in under the comforter so that he could take the other side. In the darkness, I felt the mattress sink down with his unfamiliar weight. He was close enough to touch, yet far enough away that I supposed it was possible to forget he was there.

Possible, but not bloody likely.

I laid on my back, the comforter brushing against my bare breasts, mimicking how his hands felt upon my nipples. I closed my eyes, hoping to quiet the memories. Despite how tired I was, I’d never get to sleep like this.

“Gracie?” he whispered after a few minutes. “Are you still awake?”

“Yes.”

“May I hold you?”

Even though he couldn’t see my expression, I grinned at how silly his request sounded.

“Considering what we’ve done before, I think you’re past the point of having to ask permission to touch me.”

It was true. We’d slept together once - actually slept - back at his place. Granted, we’d both been relatively comatose given the amount of drinks we’d had. We hadn’t minded then if a random arm or leg invaded each other’s personal space.

But as he reached for me tentatively, I realized this was different. I submitted myself to him, letting him mold me the way he wanted to. He rolled me over so I laid on my side, him behind me. His arms held me tightly, but it wasn’t binding or restrictive. His face curved towards me, his lips pressed softly in the space where my neck met my shoulder blades, though he wasn’t kissing me. I could feel his every breath, his every heartbeat.

I could also feel my own pulse pounding very noticeably between my legs.

But I laid there, drinking it all in and wanting nothing more. In that very moment, I realized that I had never felt more safe in my life. The intimacy was astounding, a hundred times more powerful than that of the sex we’d had earlier. I knew then that he would do anything to protect me.

Even if it meant torturing the both of us.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ - FINDING RESOLUTION BY NATALIE GAYLE


Book: Finding Resolution (Centre Games #4)
Author: Natalie Gayle
Release Date: February 28th, 2015
Hosted by:  Book Empire Promotions 


SYNOPSIS

Finally, Dr. Jasmine Carter (Jazz) was getting her shot at taking the lead on one of the Centre’s highly covert operations. Great, wonderful, a dream come true even—you’d think. Well, that was until Mr. Tall, Dark, and Broody—Quade Roston, her fellow Centre co-worker—was assigned to be her partner.

For the last twelve months, these two had been at war. In fact, they’d elevated trading verbal barbs to the level of an international sport. For all the antagonism, the chemistry between them was just as strong. They both knew it—their teammates knew it. But what the hell were they going to do about it?

Simple—Jazz issues a challenge to Quade that she thinks he’ll never accept nor live up to.

Then their seemingly straightforward assignment to investigate a few cases of a mystery illness suddenly morphs into something much more deadly. Jazz finds herself the unknowing target in the middle of a bikie war. Now she’s dealing with threats from all corners. But maybe, just maybe, the biggest threat will be to her heart.



 


EXCERPT

Please choose one from the two. 

Excerpt One 
A few minutes later, she pulled her coffee from under the machine when the front door opened. Quade walked in, looking all sexy and macho in his jogging gear. Or more accurately—his lack thereof. He wore only loose athletic shorts. His magnificent body was bare. The discarded shirt was tucked into the waistband of his shorts and trailed behind. In his hands, he juggled a couple of large bakery bags and the smell of warm butter croissants filled her nostrils. Croissants were an absolute favorite of hers. More brownie points for Mr. Roston this morning. “Hey, sexy lady—you sleep well?” His deep and low voice immediately made her hot for him. “I just woke up. You been out long?” “I headed out around five.” “Five! That’s so early.” “You know we don’t need to sleep much, Jazz. I got about two or three hours. That’s fine. I was feeling restless so I headed out.” “I’m surprised you didn’t wake me.” She gave him a very suggestive look. “Don’t worry—I thought about it long and hard.” Two could play at innuendos, it seemed. “Why didn’t you do something about it then?” “Because I figured you needed the sleep. As it is, you’ve only have a couple more hours than me. You need more.” Jazz tried to keep her heart under control at his concern. “I wouldn’t want you to be tired and bitchy.” Her temper sprang to life. Ah—she should have known. He just couldn’t help it. Just when she thought he was being sweet, he went and ruined it. “I don’t get bitchy.” Quade paused from unloading the bakery bags on the table. “You sure about that?” “Absolutely.” “Well, I guess this is another one of those areas that we’ll have to agree to disagree.” “What the hell are you talking about?” “I thought it was straightforward? We’re talking about you being bitchy when you don’t get enough sleep.” He was so frustrating. “And how would you know anyway? This is the only time we’ve spent the night together.” “I’ve spent the last twelve months observing you from a distance. I know more about you than you think.” “Well, that may be the case but I’m not bitchy.” “Alright then, you’re not bitchy. Just incredibly hot when you’re out of sorts.” “You think I’m hot when I’m grouchy?” “I do, and you just admitted you get grouchy!” Ahh! He was a pain in her backside. A very sexy one but a pain in the arse nonetheless. “You are a very strange and annoying man.” She huffed, trying not to get pulled too quickly into an argument. “No doubt about that, but that’s why you find me irresistible.” A cheeky grin turned up the corner of his mouth. Was she really having this conversation? Jazz placed the two cups of coffee she’d made on the table. “Who says I find you irresistible?” She stood back, hands on her hips; her eyes flashed, looking for a fight. Almost quicker than her eyes could see, his hand snapped out and caught her around the wrist and pulled her in tight to his body. Before she could utter a word, he’d taken a seat at the table with her safely perched on his lap. His lips crashed down on hers as her protest started to escape. His tongue thrust inside and suddenly she was lost to all rational thought—her body just responded to his demands. Their kiss started at scorching hot and kept climbing till it topped out at what felt like nuclear fusion. One of his hands tangled in her hair and held her head in place for him to plunder and the other caressed her back, ribs, and finally settled on her breast. He pulled away slightly. “Mmm, you smell of sex, me, and that spicy body wash you use. Delicious—I love it.” His voice was little more than a low rumbly growl and goose bumps shot up her arms.

Excerpt Two
He looked out over the darkened ocean. The moon cast a silvery shadow over the rippling water. Right, time to push on with the evening. Quade headed inside, glancing at Jazz on the way past. As he approached the couch, she flipped the screen from Facebook to her email account. Ha, sprung! His guess was she was chatting to Rihanna online. He shot her a grin to let her know he was onto her. “I’m off to take a shower. You’re welcome to join me if you want?” She looked up a little sheepishly. “Umm, you go ahead. I’m just going to finish up these emails.” “Say hi to Brayden and Rihanna for me!” he threw over his shoulder as he retreated down the hall. Next second, a flip-flop whistled close to his ear. He ducked and chuckled to himself. His girl liked to play and that suited him just fine. “Guess we need to work on your aim,” he called back to her, over his shoulder. “That was a warning shot.” He paused at the door to the bedroom. “Good thing you’re so accurate then. It’s not like I’m a small target.” “I’m surprised I didn’t wing your ego in the process. It’s even bigger than you are.” “Yeah, huge, just like my dick that you seemed to enjoy so much. Getting into the shower now.” What he wouldn’t give to see the look on her face. Now the question was how long would she wait before she couldn’t stand it any longer and come and join him. She was so hot for him right now. She wasn’t on her own.
