REVIEW & BLOG TOUR: Bleeding Love (Hope Town #2) by Harper Sloan **EXCERPT & GIVEAWAY**

Meet Liam & Megan in the newest stand alone
in the Hope Town Series by Harper Sloan! 

I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.

Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.

Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.

He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.

*Bleeding Love is the second book in the Hope Town series. It will follow Liam and Megan. Each book in the series is a HEA and can be read as a standalone.*


5 Do it the Beckett way Stars

Harper Sloans books to me are Indulgence. If I'm ever in a book slump or a just want something that will pick me right up, then Harpers books are my No 1 choice. This book was no different, delightful, sexy, HOT, fun and heart warming.

What's it about?
Megan is the widow of Cohen's (Back in unexpected Fate) Friend, the friend that got killed on the field during war. But Megan is not happy and not loving life, she loves her daughter Molly and does everything for her but not for herself. That is until she see's Lee and there is a smidge of hope. Lee though has a lot of work to get her to open up.

Liam (Lee) which if you are known to the Corps security series is the son of Beck and Dee. He is a Cop and their attraction is undeniable. Megan is trying to steer clear from Lee because she feels something that she can't quite put her finger on. On the other hand, she wants him as much as he wants her. One night of Sex changes things yet Lee has a lot on his hands to get her to open up for Reals.

Megan is living trough pain and unable to move forward from regret and many other reasons for you to find out. Lee is just like his Father in many ways and if you have read Beck then you will understand what I'm saying here , still Lee is a gentle compassionate hero. He takes his time to teach Megan how to live and more importantly how to FEEL. Lee with the help of his best friend Dani establish a list of fun things to do just to teach Megan how to live, see fun.

This is kind of quick fast pasted unable to put it down read. I just loved the flow of it, and it breathed easy as Harper would say. I also just loved the family element in it, Lee is a single child so I suppose he learnt to love from his parents. He wanted what they have and he got love in bucket loads from them. Therefore he knew exactly how to give it, even if this was his first real and last love.

And as expected you will read ALOT of HOT sexy moments and scenes. Yet I would say these books are slightly different to the Corps books, they are still HOT, but there is an added quality in that you see more depth and feelings. You will see family bonds, which kind of generate down because you know the parents and their story. Make sense?
This is a standalone though, you can still read, even if you haven't read any of the Corps or Hope Town books, but I would still recommend reading them at some point.

That Is All

ARC Gifted via TSOR in exchange for an honest review

His mouth leaves mine and with his hand still on my leg, he demands, “Dig your heels in deep, baby.”
I give him what he wants, but not because he told me to.  I give him what he wants because when his hand leaves my leg and pushes into the mattress, bringing his body up he goes even deeper into my body and those heels push hard.
Just as he demanded earlier, my hands go to his shoulders on my own accord and as he takes my body hard, my nails dig in with my heels still pushing hard against the small of his back.  Our eyes never leave each other’s probing gaze.  Never once do I take my eyes away from his, so full of lust that I know there isn’t an ounce of control left in his body.
He drops his head and I lift up to meet him in a kiss so sweet it doesn’t match the powerful way that he’s taking my body.  A kiss that gives me more than words ever could at this moment.  His hips slow and as his tongue rolls against mine, his hips start to take me in slow, deep rolls.  He doesn’t pull back, just rocks his hips against mine.
I push up and cry out when he slips even deeper.
His lips come from mine and his hooded eyes open a sliver.  “Feels like heaven,” he says softly.  “Everything, darlin’.  Feels like everything.”

“Last chance,” he tells me with a wicked grin.  “And this time I mean last one, darlin’.  We take this step and make no doubt about it, you will be mine.  You give me this and I fucking promise you that I will never make you regret taking that step.  You ready to jump from that chapter you’ve been skimming through and skip into mine?”
I give him a smile, one that is full of confidence and not the least bit unsure as the words that he had told me weeks before come back between us.
“I’m ready.”
“Fuck,” he groans.  “Buckle up, baby.”
My smile doesn’t slip for a second.  Not when I pull my belt across my chest.  Not when he slams the door and races to his own.  It grows wider when he slams the truck in drive and fishtails back onto the path that will take us back toward town.  It isn’t until his big hand reaches out and takes my leg in his strong hold that my smile slips slightly, but it only slips because my head falls back and I whimper and try to rub my legs together to ease the ache between them.  I lose the smile completely when my mouth drops open and that whimper turns into a loud whine as his long fingers dance up my legs until he slips beneath the hem on my shorts and pushes my panties to the side, pressing against my clit in sure movements that have me panting in seconds.
“Fucking drenched,” he grounds out through his tightly clamped teeth.
I roll my head against the headrest and look across the cab at his face.  His finger dips from my swollen clit and as he drops his hand lower, his wrist twists slightly so that when he gets there his finger slides deep inside me.
My legs spread instantly when his thick finger fills me and I hear his rumbled groan fill the space around us as he slides his finger as deep as his position allows before pulling it back, then repeating his movements until I can feel myself soaking his hand.  If he keeps this up, I won’t last.  He adds a second finger and my hand digs into the door and I reach out, wrapping my other around his forearm and choke on shattered breaths when he thrusts his fingers so deep, I feel like I’ve been electrocuted as he hits that spot that has me panting, whimpering and begging incoherently.
“Please, Lee, please,” I pant.  How I formed those words, I’ll never know.
“Fuck,” he snarls, the sound making my arousal spike even higher.  “You’ll call me that when I’m so deep inside you my balls will be soaked with this sweetness.”
His fingers curl and I pant, my hand cramping around the force of my grip.
“Please, oh God.  Not without you, please.”
I pray he understands my plea and when he curses, I know he gets me.  His hand leaves my pants and I cry out, causing him to spit out a string of curses that would make a sailor blush.  His leg slams down and I feel the truck pick up speed as I watch him take his fingers to his mouth and lick every drop of my wetness from his skin.
“Holy shit,” I exhale.
“You’re getting my mouth first, darlin’.  That wasn’t enough of a taste and fuck me, I’m starved.”
I say nothing, just continue to feel like my heart is about to slam from my chest as I continue to shift my legs back and forth in attempt to ease the burn he’s lit between my legs.

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
