[PRE-ORDER & Giveaway ] WHERE THE NIGHT ENDS by Melissa Toppen

Title: Where the Night Ends
Author: Melissa Toppen
Genre: Coming to Age Romance
Release Date: July 18, 2017
 

Hot Books and Sassy Girls Book Blog - “Where the night ends, will leave you emotional and breathless. This one gives you hope for true love and the author did a great job in capturing the emotions of true love.”

My Time Out Book Blog - “I've never experienced so many emotions while reading a book. But at the same time brings back so many memories.”
Book Haven Book Blog - “Completely phenomenal!! This book filled me with nostalgia for the power and longevity of a first time love, and literally brought me to my knees at 3am in a puddled mess on the floor when it was all over because I lost an entire day with Sebastian and Tessa.”

 It only takes one night—one moment, one small snippet of time—to change everything. At sixteen-years-old, Sebastian Baxter taught me that. He taught me a lot of things.
He never had to work for my heart. In some unexplainable way I think it had always belonged to him anyway.

We spent years loving each other, hurting each other, trying to forget each other, but no matter how hard I tried, I could never erase the memory of him. His eyes, his smile, his touch—these are all things that are embedded in my brain, tattooed on my skin, and etched into my heart.

Some might think our love story is over, but deep down I know it’s only just beginning.

Because it’s not about where the night begins, it’s about where it ends…

Where the Night Ends is a standalone, coming of age, romance.
“Hey.” Sebastian rocks back on his heels, shoving his hands into the pockets of his jeans as he stares back at me, a twinkle of mischief in his eyes.

I swear I feel like I’ve entered some alternate reality. There’s no way Sebastian Baxter is standing on my front porch right now. And yet, here he is—right in front of me—looking so handsome in his dark jeans and gray tee, his hair pushed back haphazardly like he’s run his hands through it several times throughout the day.
He’s so good looking it should be a sin. No one should be this sexy. And yet he is. Every inch of him is perfection and I hate that with just a smile, my heart beats a little harder.
“Hey.” I don’t try to hide my confusion over his unexpected visit. “What are you doing here, Sebastian?”
“I wanted to see you.” He shrugs, a smirk playing on the corner of his mouth. I swear if I could bottle up this moment and keep it forever I would. God, what is he doing to me right now?
“How did you even know where I lived?” The moment the question leaves my lips I know the answer.
“Courtney,” we both say in unison, his smirk turning into a full smile. Butterflies erupt in my stomach, and I’m suddenly painfully aware of how ridiculous I probably look. As if he can somehow read my mind, he adds, “Cute pajamas.”
I nervously fidget with the bottom of my tank, thanking the heavens that I had enough forethought to put on a bra. “I wasn’t expecting company,” I finally manage to squeak out.
“Well, now that you have it are you going to invite me in?” Could he be any surer of himself? His confidence oozes from every orifice of his body, and I desperately want to soak it in—know what it’s like to feel that good in your own skin.
“I’m still trying to decide.” I eye him warily.
“Anything I can do to sway your decision?” He steps forward, his tall frame now towering over me. I wish I could say that I’m immune to his charms, that the nearness of his body doesn’t stir something deep inside of me—a wanting I didn’t even know I could feel, but that wouldn’t be the truth.
“I-uh my mom’s not home. I don’t think she’d approve of you being here.” I regret it the moment I say it. Stupid, Tess. Seriously. You’re mom’s not home. That’s the best you got?
“I’ll be good.” He tips my chin up with the back of his hand so that I’m looking up at him. “You can trust me,” he offers with a humored grin.
“It’s not you I’m worried about,” I mumble under my breath a little too loudly, realizing my mistake almost instantly.
His eyes sparkle with humor, but he chooses not to address the statement we both know he heard. Instead, he slides past me into the house, giving me no choice but to follow him inside.

[New Release &Giveaway] COCKY CLIENT BY WHITNEY GARCIA WILLIAMS

Cocky Client

by Whitney G. 
Publication Date: July 13, 2017 
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Purchase: Amazon | iBooks | Kobo | Nook
Today is officially the worst day of my life…
I woke up five hours late after a reckless one-night stand with the sexiest, cockiest, and most arrogant man I’ve ever met. (And this asshole actually left a note: “I think you were lying to me about being “experienced” last night. You orgasmed three times, and that was before we made it to your bedroom. I also find it hard to believe you “usually wear silk or lingerie.” Your drawers are all full of cotton granny panties–The best man you’ve ever fucked…) My top two PR clients left me for my number one competitor, my roommate accidentally bleached my best suit, and my favorite coffee shop was shut down for “health concerns.” Still, none of those things dimmed my excitement for what was supposed to be the best four o’clock signing session of my career. I was on the verge of signing the highest paying client in my company’s history, taking on a so-called “impossible” job that no publicist had been able to handle. But at four o’clock, there was no athlete, television personality, or celebrity who showed up. Instead, that sexy, arrogant one-night stand stepped into my office with his familiar panty-wetting smirk and introduced himself as my new, cocky client…

Hate to Love You, an all-new standalone from New York Times Bestseller Tijan is coming August 28th!

HATETOLOVEYOUFINALCOVER2

Hate to Love You by Tijan Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: August 28th

Rule #1: No hot guys.
It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of is, but college was supposed to be my sanctuary. It was my place to start over. The rumors, the whispers, and the jealousy I endured through high school would all be gone.
No one would know me at college.
Rule #2: No drama.
I’d major in pre-law. I’d make a few loyal friends. Everything would be easy breezy. No one was going to use me or hurt me. I wouldn’t let them.
Rule #3: New year. New place. New me.
Right?
Wrong.
And all because of Shay Coleman.
Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. I hated him on sight . . .
. . . and he was about to break all my rules.

About Tijan:

I didn't begin writing until after undergraduate college. There'd been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can't blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I'm hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories. 11407219_471377189679164_4734492373876819879_n

[New Release & Book Reviews] THE UNREQUITED by Saffron A Kent




Title: The Unrequited
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 13, 2017



Blurb

Layla Robinson is not crazy. She is suffering from unrequited love. But it’s time to move on. No more stalking, no more obsessive calling.

What she needs is a distraction. The blue-eyed guy she keeps seeing around campus could be a great one—only he is the new poetry professor—the married poetry professor.

Thomas Abrams is a stereotypical artist—rude, arrogant, and broody—but his glares and taunts don’t scare Layla. She might be bad at poetry, but she is good at reading between the lines. Beneath his prickly façade, Thomas is lonely, and Layla wants to know why. Obsessively.

Sometimes you do get what you want. Sometimes you end up in the storage room of a bar with your professor and you kiss him. Sometimes he kisses you back like the world is ending and he will never get to kiss you again. He kisses you until you forget the years of unrequited love; you forget all the rules, and you dare to reach for something that is not yours.

NOTE: Please be aware that this book deals with sensitive topics like cheating and death. 18+ Only.

Excerpt

I’m hit by a storm of desire to kiss him better. It’s a tornado, an avalanche in my body, and in one breathless moment, I decide to go for it. It’s okay. I can take the blame for it later.
I break the rules and reach up and kiss him. A feathery peck on his plump lips, it’s a kiss of solidarity, a kiss that intends to tell him I understand—but one isn’t enough. It only manages to ratchet up my lust. So I give him another, this time on the corner of his mouth, and then another one on his jaw.
It’s not enough, these small, barely-there touches. I want more, but I won’t take it. I’ll be good; I’ll only give.
Abruptly, he fists my curls and stops me. I look at him fearfully, ready to apologize—not for the kiss, but for being the kisser. His gaze reflects passion, stark, raving need, and I shiver, despite wearing layers and sweating with his heat.
“Are you trying to kiss me, Layla?” he rasps, flexing his fingers on my makeshift ponytail.
He couldn’t tell? Blush rises to the surface and I know I’m glowing like a neon sign. Swallowing, I nod. “Yes.”
He inches closer to me, still not touching—as impossible as that is—but infinitely closer. “You want to kiss me, Miss Robinson, you do it right.”
Oh God, does he have to call me that? Now, here? My spine arches on its own and my heavy tits graze the contours of his shuddering chest.
“H-How?” I ask innocently, belying the daring action of my body. His stern, professor-y voice is doing things to me, making me wild, uncontrolled.
For a second, he’s silent, just watching. I’m afraid he’ll back out from whatever this is, whatever insanity we’re about to commit—but then I sense the shift in the liquor-laced air as he opens his mouth and growls, “Like this.”






Author Bio

Writer of bad romances. Coffee Addict. White Russian Drinker. Imaginary Ballet Dancer and poetess. Aspiring Lana Del Ray of the book world.

I'm a big believer in love (obviously). I believe in happily ever after, the butterflies and the tingling. But I also believe in edgy, rough and gutsy kind of love. I believe in pushing the boundaries, darker (sometimes morally ambiguous) emotions and imperfections.

The kind of love I write about is flawed just like my characters. And I hope by the end of it, you'll come to root for them just as much as me. Because love, no matter where it comes from, is always pure and beautiful.

BY LAURA LEE 


Do you know how long it’s been since I picked up a book and did ABSOLUTELY Nothing all day because I was so engrossed in the book my life suffered? It’s been a while!

Going into my first Saffron A. Kent book, I would have never imagined a story written so well, flowed perfectly and cracked open every emotion known to mankind would be my first book by this author! Where have I been hiding to not have read anything of this talented authors work? 

Layla Robinson has always loved the wrong people. Making her feel like love was unimaginable for someone who deserved to be loved as much as her. When her mother sends her away to college far away after her last failed love attempt, Layla sets her target on a new distraction. The married professor. 

Thomas Abrams is in his first year of being the new professor. Having given up his true love to safe his suffering marriage, he has taken the job to save his family. But when he first sees this purple clad person in the bookstore, he knows things will change. 

When you regret this---and I know you will---just remember that you asked for it. 

When Layla and Thomas are together its Hot, its Steamy and its very wrong… But together they make beautiful words. Words that are meant to flow….

Their love story isn’t a pretty one, in fact it’s a Rule-Breaker One that I totally enjoyed reading!!! Great Job Saffron A. Kent, You Knocked it Out OF THE BALLPARK with this one!!!

BY (SHABBY)SHABNAMARORA 


"The Harlot fell in love with the Fire-breather. "

Saffron makes me want to be A Harlot , if only I can find a Fire breather with piercing blue eyes that stare right into my soul. This just about sums up the story of Doomed , Unrequited love . It will definitely seep into your soul and devour you.
It's not just a book, it's a peek into mangled hearts that saffron creates and then destroys with her skillful observation of Love and all its trimmings , sweet and sour !!!
"Depth is misleading from the surface. Sometimes taking a plunge is the only way to find out if the water is too deep or just deep enough."

And JUST for that line , this book deserves an extra sixth star. !!
All new words, all new lines, all new vantage to look and feel the obsessive love. It's like saffron takes 26 alphabets and knits a new language that hasn't been written before. Her writing depth is unfathomable. You feel a pressure in your heart that threatens to explode as you dive deeper and deeper in this story. She hides the beauty in tragedy , covering them with layers of beautiful words
Creates such Magical characters like Thomas Abrams , a Professor of Poetry . 

"Thomas Abrams is magic. He’s a wordsmith, a baby whisperer, a blue-eyed asshole, but most of all, he’s like me: brokenhearted."

But he's lost his words . Or rather disavowed and buried them 


And this " Me " is Layla Robinson. She is a recovering Obsessive & spurned Lover. She's trying to move on from her broken Unrequited love and when she spots Thomas one night , sitting alone on a bench in the park, she feels her heart tug . Her "Mud Vein" pulls her to him . You see they're soulmates. Not neccessarily going to end up together like Loves of their Lives, but that invisible thread that connects them is unmistakable. They share the same Sickness of Unrequited Love 


“Because unrequited love is like a dead, useless Vestigial organ. It’s functionless. It’s sicker than a disease. You can cure a disease, but you can’t fix a defective soul. That’s the most frustrating thing in the world, to be that powerless.”

I need to mention something here. Saffron writes very much like two of my fave Queens Of Pain - Sarah Ann Walker and Tarryn Fisher . This book smelled and tasted like the flavour of "Mud Vein" . Not in content , but in treatment and visualisation. The profound impact the writing has equals only to Tarryn's. With so many taboo forbidden stories floating around, here comes a genius who shakes you by the shoulders to sit up and read . Read what its really like to feel the forbidden so hurtful that it seeps into your marrow and eats you like a cannibal . Saffron pulls off the rose tinted glasses off love and shows us the ugly, hurtful, painful, self-harming , suffocating side of UNREQUITED. I don't know whether to applaud her or curse her !!
Oh my god, the words are still rattling inside me , even after I finished reading last night . And couldn't sleep . I cried so hard, with a painful lump in my throat and I'm crying now because the words jumped out of the story and stuck to my hearts . Piercing and sticky. 

“It’s like lyrics without music. It’s so easy to lose yourself in the beat of music, but lyrics keep you grounded. It keeps your mind active, you know. You have to pay attention, listen to it over and over to get its meaning, to read between the lines.Yeah. That’s why I like poetry. Because of the words. They ground me.”

And this is EXACTLY what her words are !. They will ground and float you.
I could quote the gazillion highlights from the book, I could write a lengthy review but I just wanna say
GO READ THIS BOOK . !!!!!!
It'll Change your life & it'll change your vision . You'll look at love and life in a new crystal clear way, you've never looked before. Saffron is truely a brave writer , how she managed to write this story without going insane is commendable 
bravery is not the absence of fear, but the courage to do something despite it
6 "Fire-Breather" stars. I could give 10 seriously !
