Oh, perfect I just get back from a run with sweaty hair,wet and hanging loose from the hair band attempting butfailing to keep it in place. I’m wearing sweats and an oldMuse t-shirt with a stain on it from spilt juice, and who’ssitting looking perfect in a suit and tie, tapping away at hislaptop?Mr sexy/annoying as hell Finlay, that’s who.He gets up and knocks back whatever is in his mug,closing his computer, and smirks as he takes in my attire.“There’s eggs still hot on the stove. Help yourself, and tellGaby I won’t be back for dinner.” He waltzes past me, hisscent hitting me in the face like invisible mist …deliciousscented mist.“Do I look like your secretary?” I mumble over myshoulder, grabbing a bottle of water I’d left on the counterfrom earlier then guzzling it down. The warm palm hittingmy ass cheek causes a screech to choke out of me and waterto spurt everywhere. Warm air hits my earlobe as Finlaywhispers, “No, you definitely do not look like my secretary.”Did he really slap my butt?“Hang on. Is that an insult or a compliment?” I call afterhim as he chuckles and shuts the front door behind him.Looking down at my outfit, I scrunch my nose up. I needsome new clothes and I need to kick his ass for slappingmine.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active... I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I'm not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I'm a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where i love interacting with my readers.

REVIEW: Searching for Always (Searching For #4) by Jennifer Probst **GIVEAWAY**

SFA_BLITZ

Today we are celebrating the release of SEARCHING FOR ALWAYS by Jennifer Probst. This is the 4th book in the Searching For series and it is published by Gallery Books. Check out the teaser and giveaway below.



SearchingforAlways  New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jennifer Probst sparks a blissful mind-body connection as her “sexy, satisfying” (Kirkus Reviews) new series continues!
She’s an expert in helping others de-stress, but Arilyn Meadows is running on fumes. Along with her job counseling singles seeking soul mates at the Kinnections agency in Verily, New York, she’s a yoga teacher, animal shelter volunteer, anger management therapist, and helping hand to her beloved grandfather. No time to find Mr. Right—but after discovering her yogi boyfriend in a compromising asana, Arilyn would rather dog-sit for her honeymooning friend Kate than risk her heart on another downward dog. And when police officer Stone Petty—radiating masculinity and bad-boy attitude—is sent to her for mandatory lessons in cooling off when the job gets too hot, Arilyn vows to ignore his seductive glances and sexy grin. But there’s no halting their sizzling flirtation—a red-hot, high-speed chase that’s breaking all the limits


4 "Little One" STARS

This was my first book by this author and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed it! I will definitely be reading more by her.

This was a highly entertaining, feel good read and while it's part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. Officer Stone Petty finds himself attending mandatory anger management classes (or else he will lose his job) that are led by Arilyn Meadows.

Arilyn believes in clean and calm living. She is about focusing the mind and the body and seeking a life of zen. Whereas, Stone is all about his job, he used to smoke and feels life is for fun and shouldn't be bogged down by feelings and relationships.

Stone and Arilyn could not be more opposite than night and day yet, they both feel an undeniable chemistry that attracts and repulses each of them! These two can bicker like the best of them and their banter and antics were funny.


And what I found hilarious was how Stone liked to rile up Arilyn...after all, she's supposed to be calm and collected by Stone just knew how to push her buttons.


While Stone and Arilyn give into their physical attraction, all the while denying there is more, Ms. Probst takes us on a journey that is endearing, memorable and entertaining. And I must say, her secondary characters are also engaging...Poppy, stole my heart!

I'd recommend this book and think it's a great summer read. If you're looking for a little humour, lovable characters, sexual chemistry and tension and eventually a HEA, this is for you.

**An ARC was provided by author in exchange for an honest review.**

BOOK BLITZ: Spin and Ruin by CD Reiss **Excerpt**


Due to popular demand and in anticipation of RULE, the grand finale of the series....…Books One & Two in CD Reiss's hit mafia series,
Songs of Corruption Series are bundled into one set!   


That’s right. Spin & Ruin are together for ONLY 99c! (normally over $7)



Rough sex. Dirty talk. Criminal activity. Cursing. Fisticuffs. Closed course. Professional driver. Do not try this at home.**

Theresa Drazen wants to know one thing.
Is there something wrong with her?
Because from what she can see, she has money, brains, a body that does the job. Yet, she keeps getting shelved. Most recently, by her fiancé who happens to be the DA.
And she'll get over it, really. No problem. She'll just have a nice, short encounter with a mysterious Italian named Antonio who may or may not be involved with some kind of alleged criminal activity...blah blah...
Let's call a spade a spade.
He's a mobster.
Let's face a few more facts.
He's hot. He's smart. And if anyone breathes on her the wrong way, he's got no problem beating their head against a Porsche until they're willing to lick up their own vomit to make it stop.
Just about everything about that turns her on.
Yeah. There's something wrong with her.


    


I caught the scent again and looked in her direction, as if I could see the smell’s source. It could have come from anyone. It could have been the gorgeous black lady with the sweet smile. It could have been the plate of saucy meat that crossed my path. Could have been the waft of parking lot that came through the door before it snapped closed.
 But it wasn’t.
 I knew it like I knew tax code; it was him. The man in the dark suit and thin pink tie, the full lips and two-day beard. His eyes were black as a felony, and they stayed on me as his body swung into the booth.
 The smell had come from him, not the other man getting into the booth. It was in his gaze, which was locked on me, disarming me. He was beautiful to me. Not my type, not at all. But the slight cleft in his chin, the powerful jaw, the swoop of dark hair falling over his forehead seemed right. Just right. I swallowed. My mouth had started watering, and my throat had gotten dry. I got a flash of him above me, with that swoop of hair rocking, as he fucked me so hard the sheets ripped.
 He turned to say something to the hostess, and I took a gulp of air. I’d forgotten to breathe. I put my hands to my shirt buttons to make sure they were fastened, because I felt as if he’d undressed me.



Rule Releases on August 27th!
   


CD Reiss is a USA Today and Amazon bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up, she’s at the well, hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did embed TV story structure in her head well enough for her to take a big risk on a TV series structured erotic series called Songs of Submission. It’s about a kinky billionaire hung up on his ex-wife, an ingenue singer with a wisecracking mouth; art, music and sin in the city of Los Angeles.

Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to give the toilets a once-over every couple of weeks or chop a cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
