IndieSage PR Hosted Cover Reveal for MY ENEMY NEXT DOOR by Nicole London & Whitney G.!



My Enemy Next Door

by Nicole London and Whitney G.
Publication Date: January 11, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Enemies to Lovers)
Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs
Model: Jorge Del Rio Romero


Preorder: iBooks


"You are a cocky, arrogant asshole and I sincerely wish you misery for the rest of your life...PS--You weren't *that* damn sexy... "

Those were the last lines I wrote in Jace Kennedy's yearbook before graduating high school.

Enemies from the moment we met, we went out of our way to avoid each other whenever we could. And in the moments that we couldn't? Our heated arguments were strong enough to light the world on fire.

He was an all-star prick. Plain and simple.

I was a "band geek with fugly-ass braces." (Not true at all.)

Needless to say, I couldn't wait to leave him and our small hometown of Blue Harbor behind.

Now that it's ten years later, I've graduated from Harvard Law at the top of my class, and I'm working at the firm of my dreams. I'm happier than I've ever been, surrounded by new loyal friends, and ready to compete for the lead lawyer position.

Until I find out that Jace Kennedy graduated from law school, too.

Until I realize that he'll be working at the same exact firm, in the office right across from me.

And if that isn't unfortunate enough, he's far sexier and way more arrogant than I originally remembered. (Oh, and last night he moved in next door...)

I should’ve never agreed to this arrangement…

Thirty days ago, my boss—Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn’t refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancĂ©e for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a “very generous” severance package.

The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I’ve secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met.


I definitely didn’t need to think twice about this. I signed my name and started counting down the seconds to when I would never have to deal with his special brand of ass-holery again.I only made it to one minute…We argued the entire four-hour flight to his hometown, failed to make a convincing impression with the welcoming press, and right when I was about to knock that arrogant look off his face in real life? He purposely dropped his bath towel in front of me, distracting me with his nine-inch cock to “show me who the bigger person was” in our relationship. Then he gave me his trademark smirk once again and asked if I wanted to consummate our marriage.

Tragically, this is only day one.
We still have 29 more days to go…

SBPRBanner-Scandalous-BT.jpg

Scandalous, the highly anticipated next standalone in the Sinners of Saint Series by LJ Shen is available NOW!

LJSScandalousBookCover6x9_BW_330.jpg

Scandalous by LJ Shen

Publishing Date: September 29th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance


They call him The Mute for a reason.
Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.
When he does, it’s with disdain.
When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.
When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.
He is thirty-three.
I am eighteen.
He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.
I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.
He’s emotionally unavailable.
And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.
Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.
And yet, I can’t stay away.
A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.
And oh, what a beautiful chaos it will be.

Excerpt:



Trent’s gaze cut to mine and stopped when his grays met my blues. The fading noise of Vicious barking at people to move along, and my father finally letting go of my arm to move toward Jaime and Dean—probably trying to gain both allies and sympathy—died down.



“I don’t like you,” Rexroth whispered under his breath, his voice harsh.



“I never asked you to.” I shrugged.



“You won’t be working here.” His arm brushed my shoulder, but I didn’t think it was by accident. I let loose a sugary smile, scanning his face and torso for no other reason other than to taunt him. “Good, you’ll be doing me a favor. My father is the one forcing me to work here. He’s pissed I turned down five Ivy League colleges. Remind me, Mr. Rexroth—which top tier university did you attend for your degree?”



The low blow was supposed to retrieve some of my lost dignity, but bile burned my throat, shotgunned from my stomach. Trent Rexroth was known in Todos Santos as an exhilarating success story, rising from the gutters of San Diego. He went to a shitty state college that accepted even the illiterate, working as a janitor on campus after hours. Those were given facts he’d recited himself in an interview for Forbes.



Had I really just tried to make him feel less worthy because he wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth? It made me sicker than wearing my mother’s designer garbs.

Trent smiled, leaning into my body, into my soul. His smirk was more frightening than any scowl, frown, or grimace I’d ever seen. It threatened to tear me apart and sew me back together however he pleased.



“Edie.” His lips were dangerously close to my ear. A delicious shiver moved down my spine. Something warm rolled inside of me, begging to unknot and flower into an orgasm. What was happening, and why the hell was it happening? “If you know what’s best for you, you will turn around and leave right now.”



I elevated my head to meet his gaze and showed him my version of a grin. I was born and raised in a world of intimidating rich men, and I’d be damned if I go down like my mother—addicted to xanax, Gucci, and a man who paraded her on his arm for a short, glorious decade before keeping her solely for public appearances.



“I think I’m going to go find my desk now. I’d wish you a good day, Mr. Rexroth, but I think that ship has sailed. You’re a miserable man. Oh, and one for the road.” I fished for a Nature Valley bar in my mother’s purse and plastered it to his hard, muscled chest. My heart slammed into my neck, fluttering like a caged bird.



I hurried after my father as he glided down the vast, golden-hued hallway, not daring to look back. Knowing I’d started a war and arrived unequipped. But I also knew something else that gave me a surfer’s rush—if I could slam the final nail in my employment coffin and make Rexroth vote against me, I’d be off the hook.



I had just the plan for it. All I had to do was act like a brat. Game on.

Final Score - 5 Trent is The Hothole to END ALL HOTHOLES Stars!

I don't know how she does it, but each #HotHole just gets better & more ... douchey, but in an attractive "I so wish you were real, cuz I'd jump your bones" kind of way. Real difficult to achieve, but I'm starting to realize that since Troy happened, the author knows this type well and knows how to deliver it as well. Love you Leigh <3 and="" span="" thank="" you="">

I'm in serious LUST with a man, dickhead attitude and all! #hopelesscase #TrentISMine I just can't say enough about him. Just know that once you start this book, you will forgo eating, sleeping, bathroom breaks, and sex (unless it's with a vibrator on hand and ready to go as you read this). Yes, I'm that confident you will LOVE this!

Revisiting old hotholes was nice - #ViciousISStillDelicious - but move over man (and Dean, sorry - you are so adorable) - but this girl firmly belongs to TRENT. Trent isn't what you expect in a hothole - ok, well yeah he's got the attitude, the looks, the style ... but he's more. So much more! In the end, he's just a man, albeit a bit broken, looking to help his daughter any way he can. He loves that little girl so much, as he wants is for her to just open up and experience the world. 

Luna is such a bright, beautiful child. Not very articulate - much like her father - but when she wants you to know something, better watch out! I adore this child and can really see no one else as being her dad but Trent. They are a package deal.

Edie broke my heart with the weight of the world on her slim and tired shoulders. Absent parents? Jesus girl, I would have run the hell away. But she can't because then she'd be leaving the other half of her behind. That is the measure of true love. This girl is swimming in it!

When this hothole and this beach babe meet - their worlds not only collide, but they combust. Age difference be damned, these two are on a level playground as far as I'm concerned. Maturity is not based on one's age - its based off of one's actions. Trent was left with an infant daughter to raise, and Edie was left to her devices by parents who were too caught up in themselves. These things have broken peoples spirits, but not these two. They are the definition of survivor.

Gah, I seriously need to do a re-read this weekend. I just can't accept that it's done/over. #TrentISKing #separationanxiety #INeedMoreHotholes

So many twists, SO many turns. The best was most definitely saved for last. Don't miss out! 

To the author - Leigh - girl! I seriously love your twisted, diabolical mind. Please come to NY soon for a signing as I must bow at altar that is YOU ... For real!

On the streets of New Orleans, sins are committed every night.

My name is Jett Colby and I save tarnished souls.

In the downtown, under the glittery lights of Bourbon Street, I found her in cheap lingerie, flaunting her body for callous men and money.

From the lace of her cheap lingerie, to her garter belt, I knew she had to be saved.
She had to be mine.

Broke and destitute with no way of out, she had no choice but to come to me and into my club.

She had no other choice but to become a Jett Girl.

But see, that’s the thing about this city; you might think that under the dazzling lights and illusion of salvation, she’s the one that needed saving.

When the glitter fades and the dirt is washed away, the one worth saving just might be me.

*Formerly known as Becoming a Jett Girl. Add it to your TBR--> http://bit.ly/2foiqfA


The walls of my club hold many secrets. Depravity. Sin. Justice.

Come in; debauchery can be yours for the cost of a lap dance and a night of pleasure. 

And I own every last part of it.

But she’s my weakness, and thankfully she followed me through the insolvent streets of New Orleans, giving me her loyalty and her heart. 

My desire for her dominates my every thought, but my broken past could destroy us. 

There are people trying to bring me down. 

Two malicious men stand in the way of what I want: to own it all. 

It’s either Lot 17 or Goldie, my Jett Girl. 

I have to make a choice and for once, it won’t be easy.

*Formerly known as Being a Jett Girl. Add it to your TBR--> http://bit.ly/2xhO31t


Under the neon lights of Bourbon, money is everything. 

Justice, faith, and power. They’re the key to my empire and she holds them all in the palm of her hand. Falling for her was a mistake; she stole my heart and consumed me. I was addicted, and she left me weak and vulnerable to my enemies.

They’re everywhere. 

Now she’s gone, turning to my enemy’s business partner; the man I’ve hated my entire life. She said she’s protecting me. She said it won’t be forever.

But how can I believe her? 

Lies, deceit and deception. They’re the sins driving us apart. 

In a city that never sleeps—in a place where scandal hides behind every dark corner, my Jett girl might never be mine again.

*Formerly known as Forever a Jett Girl. Add it to your TBR--> http://bit.ly/2wLsFgL


Every choice you make in life comes with a consequence.

I was once on top, I was the professional boxer to be afraid of. I had everything I could possibly hope for. I was happy, satisfied, content . . . until one night.

One off day.

One wrong reaction.

I killed a man. The sound, the blood, the stagnant air, it’s forever imprinted in my mind and now dictates the way I live my life.

Desolate with nothing but my penance to pay, I didn’t expect to have my world flipped upside down when Lyla seductively strutted into my life.

I want her. I need her. I crave her.

But I don’t deserve her.

People like to celebrate the day they were born, I like to celebrate the day my soul died.

This is my story of repentance.

About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if "It's Raining Men" starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing... enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Review: Bourbon Sins

Bourbon Sins Bourbon Sins by Meghan Quinn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Final Score - 5 I Want to be a Jett Girl Stars!

The Bourbon Sins is the first book of the Bourbon series of four books ... and I hate admitting that I'm just getting around to read it!  I so want to be Jett's Girl. For real.

Jett is a powerful, complex, mysterious, and sexy man. His mission is to help the girls who are destitute, providing them with a job, food, logging and even free education. All he asks in return is that they “submit to him” at any time but only with their consent, but he does not want a relationship or even love. This is just a no strings attached arrangement.

And there is one girl he just can't get his mind off of - Goldie.  There's just something about this girl that calls to him and makes him abandon all his rules.  Could it be that Jett had found the woman?

This book is one hell of a HAWT, panty-dropping, no holds barred sexy book - complete with a feisty leading lady and a leading man who has so much swag but it also has heart. And let's not EVEN get started on Jett’s side kick, Kace.  Oh lord! *swoon*

You are about to embark on one of the hottest series EVER.  Take the week or the weekend off and get on this!!

Ardent Prose Hosted Release Day Blitz for PROTECTING LILY by Jenika Snow!














BROCK

I’ve always considered myself the one who would never settle down, but that wasn’t because I don’t want to. I’ve been in love for years, with Lily, the one woman I’m not good enough for.

Then again, Slade “Cutter” Cutsinger, the man we both look up to, a man who has been a parental figure to Lily since her father died, is fiercely protective of her. I don’t want to cross any lines, especially when he’s an important part of my life as well.

I want Lily too much to ignore how I feel, to pretend that I can stay away.


LILY


There has only ever been one person I’ve loved, but I know I can never have him. Our paths have never crossed romantically, and I’m too afraid to admit how I feel. I’m not a little girl anymore. I know what I want in life, and I don’t want to ignore it anymore.

I want to be Brock’s until it consumes me, no matter how dangerous it may be.


BROCK


When an enemy from my past resurfaces and threatens the one person I love, it’s up to me to protect Lily. We’re trapped in a cabin and isolated from the world until the threat is handled. I know that I won’t be able to keep my self-control restrained with her around.

It’s time I man up and finally tell Lily that’s she’s always been mine.


Warning: This is a short but sexy romantic suspense story that is based in Susan Stoker’s Special Forces: Operation Alpha Kindle World. If you like your heroes over-the-top alpha with eyes for only one woman, hold on tight because you’re in for one wild ride.



I pulled back and stared into her eyes, wanting to tell her that everything would be okay, that I had things under control. I did, to an extent. But the world was fucked up, and if we could have this one moment where we were just loving each other and not worrying about the fucked-up shit outside of these walls, then I’d give it to her tenfold.
“Please, I need you,” she moaned, and I almost lost it right then. I nearly came without even being inside of her.
I couldn’t stop myself anymore. I wanted Lily. Only her.
“When it comes to you, I have no control. None, Lily.” I wanted to devour every part of her. I wanted her to scream my name as I made her feel good. I wanted her to come for me as I licked every part of her body.
I wanted her to know that I was here for her, that I’d always be here for her and keep her safe. I saw her throat work as she swallowed. She was ready, so fucking primed I knew if I touched her in just the right way, she’d come for me.
I was going to last tonight.
“I want you.”
I groaned. “I’m so fucking hungry for you.” I wanted to hear her scream it out as she came for me, wanted our limbs a tangled mess and the sheets damp from our sweat as we fucked.
“I want you too, baby.”
“I want to be yours in every way.”
“You’re already mine. You’ve been mine.” I didn’t bother lying.
She licked her lips, and I was riveted to the sight. “You’re so beautiful.” I leaned forward and ran my tongue along the seam of her lips. With us now standing, I moved us backward until she was pressed against the front door, the wood stopping her so she couldn’t escape, if the thought even moved through her mind.
The scent of her surrounded me, filled my head, made me intoxicated. I ground my hard dick right up against her belly again, unable to help myself. She made this little gasp, and I growled in approval. “You feel that, how hard I am for you, how ready I am to take you?”
She had her head resting back on the door, her mouth parted, and her eyes half-closed.
“God. I need you, Lily.” I slipped my hand around her nape and curled my fingers, leaning down and running my tongue along the side of her throat, feeling her pulse beat harder, tasting the salty-sweet flavor of her skin. I licked at her throat again and again, needing so much more of her. She lifted her hands and placed them on my biceps, digging her fingers into my flesh. I loved the pain that slammed into me as her nails pierced my flesh. “I want you as mine forever,” I admitted.
“I am yours.”










Final Score - 4.5 Stars!

There's just something about stories from the delicious mind of J. Snow that call to me ... besides the quick plot lines and lovable characters.  It's the vision she paints with her words about her dominant alpha males and their often times virgin conquests.

In her latest, the alpha male -Brock - and woman he loves - Lily - are suffering a case of unrequited love.  I would really love if the story focused more in their relationship evolving because there is some juicy stuff there that needed to be told.  It was a bit too fast paced for me, but nevertheless, I enjoyed it.

Of course, there is some down and dirty HAWT scenes and the HEA.  I recommend it if you are looking for a quick Saturday afternoon read.


Jenika Snow is a USA Today Bestselling Author that lives in the northwest with her husband and their two daughters. Before she started writing full-time she worked as a nurse.

COVER REVEAL

True Abandon by Jeannine Colette

November 13




#abandonyourreality #preorder


Can the sins of the past be forgiven with the actions of today?



Trish Hogan's life was destroyed when she gave her trust to her high school boyfriend, Jackson, and he abused it, changing the course of her life forever.



A decade later she’s living in Manhattan -- she has a roommate, a steady boyfriend and a career. When a hurricane puts the city on lock down, Trish gets a message she never thought she’d receive: Jackson is dying and alone. In a city of millions, she is the only person who can sit by his side.



Jackson Davis was once the golden child of a senator who went against his father’s plans and became a musician. Tatted up and broken, he wakes up in a hospital only to see Trish -- the one person he needs to atone his sins to -- standing before him. He will recover from his injuries, but not from the pain he caused in the past.



Trapped by the storm, they embark on a night of reckoning that has one running away to Hawaii and the other following in her steps. As the victim becomes the villain, the two are forced to face the past, live in the present and find a way to navigate into the future.
