RECKLESSLY

AUTHOR: A.J. SAND

AGE GROUP: MATURE NEW ADULT / ADULT

GENRE: CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 28TH , 2013

 

 

BOOK SUMMARY:

Wes Elliott just met his match…and she might actually burn his entire world down.

Surfing and sex. This is Wes Elliott’s life. And it’s just the way he likes it.   `
After seeing his parents stay in a loveless marriage his entire life, and burying away a heartbreak from his past, he knows where romance is best left: crappy chick movies. He’d rather lust and eventually leave, and that’s exactly what the plan was when he met Lana Langston.

Except…turns out she’s only in it for the thrills, too. She’s always only in it for the thrills: life in the literal fast lane on her motorcycle, and the hot nights in forbidden places without the awkward talks in the mornings after. She’s Wes Elliott in way tighter jeans. 

 So, this should be perfect, right? 

But the more time Wes spends with her, the more he wants the nights to turn into mornings. And maybe even longer. Suddenly, it isn’t so perfect for him anymore.
And the things he thought were buried are digging themselves up.

Now Wes is in a lot of trouble. 

He’s falling in love with the one girl who might be a bigger risk than even a guy who gets barreled by the most dangerous waves in the world is willing to take on.

Can Wes and Lana figure out a way to make it work? Or is he headed for something far more reckless?

Due to the sexual content, language and violence, this work is not recommended for readers under 18.

 

EXCERPT:

He pointed to the image of a topless Jessica Rabbit with a mermaid tail matching her signature red dress etched on his hand; the top half of her body, bare breasts and all, was displayed just below his fingers.

Lana was clutching his hand in both of hers now, staring down at the intricacies of the tattoo design—the coiffed red hair and exaggerated curvatures of her body—and tracing a soft outline with her thumbs. She drew her fingertips across the top of his hand with such slow, gentle strokes that the touch triggered the heightening of his arousal. Okay, he was wrong; maybe her touching him was a bad idea. Now, it felt too sensual for what he was thinking. Wes flicked his eyes over to her chest and down her legs again. Lana, too, had the kind of body that should’ve been immortalized in ink.

“What is the fascination with her?” Lana asked with an eye roll. “No one would actually look like that in real life, you know.”

Wes shrugged and grinned. “It’s the idea of her I like. Any chick who is that hot—not-even-on-the-scale hot, like you—and who marries a guy who’s a soft three, is really endearing.”

 

guest post:

What inspired you to write Recklessly?

I started chatting with the manager and the good friend of a pro surfer a few years ago thanks to Twitter, and as a result, I became a fan of the surfer. I had the opportunity to attend his movie premiere sometime after that, and I was introduced to a world that isn’t followed by the mainstream but has a pretty dedicated fan base. It was almost like stepping into a secret society. And it didn’t hurt that there were all these gorgeous male surfers walking around, either.

And as I watched the movie, I was awestruck by all the amazing locales where this guy “works”—Fiji, Tahiti, Hawaii, Indonesia. He gets paid to go to beautiful places to seek out the best waves in the world. It was really cool to me that there were people out there who got to do this for a living. It’s sort of a lifestyle, really. So Wes, the main character in Recklessly, was born out of that.

RELEASE EVENT: GIRL ON TOUR by Caisey Quinn

Just My Opinion Book Blog is thrilled to bring you a Release Event for GIRL ON TOUR by Caisey Quinn. Thank you to AToMR Book Tours and Caisey Quinn for including us in this opportunity!

 

GIRL ON TOUR

AUTHOR: CAISEY QUINN

AGE GROUP: NEW ADULT

GENRE: CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 27TH , 2013

 

 

BOOK SUMMARY:

An up and comer trying to make a name for herself…

KYLIE never expected to be stuck on a tour bus with a pampered princess and her boyfriend’s ex.

A troubled artist struggling to hold onto his career…

TRACE thought he was finally getting to do things his way. Until the label added co-headliner Gretchen Gibson, the only person in country music with more issues than him, to his No Apologies tour.

Surrounded by tabloid rumors and people they can’t trust, Kylie and Trace need each other more than ever. But the choices they make will change everything.

Because chasing your dreams and following your heart don’t always lead you to the same place…

 

EXCERPT:

“Behave yourself while I’m gone, Mr. Corbin,” she said, playfully smacking him square in the chest even though she was completely serious. Please don’t drink, she almost added. But she’d seen the dark cloud that had threatened to roll over his features when she asked if he’d be okay.

“I’ll try. Long as you promise to come back to me safe and sound, pretty girl,” he said, slapping her on the ass as she turned to make her way up the steps of the bus.

“Always.” She threw him one last wink before climbing the steps. A lady that looked old enough to be her grandmother sat in the driver’s seat staring straight ahead. Kylie greeted her and got nothing but a slight head tilt in response. She missed Carl, Trace’s friendly driver, already. Every step she took was like walking deeper into quicksand. Her legs seemed to be completely against the idea of walking away from Trace Corbin.

Her eyes began to tear up and she couldn’t even see the cool décor inside the bus through the pools of moisture. Screw this. She dumped her suitcase in the aisle and sprinted back to the door of the bus.

“Hey,” she called out to his retreating figure. Dang, he looked good from the back. Hate to see you go but I love to watch you leave.

“Hey yourself,” he answered as he turned to face her.

She didn’t think. Didn’t worry that she might be getting in too deep, moving too fast, or throwing more at him than he could handle. She just did what she was best at. Felt first. Acted on impulse. Once he was close enough, she launched herself into his arms and slammed her mouth down on his.

He caught her, just like she knew he would. His hands gripped her tightly as she wrapped her legs around his waist. His mouth said he was just as hungry for her as she was for him. She deepened the kiss as far as possible, lashing her tongue against his until it ached. When the world began to spin, either because she was falling hopelessly in love or because her brain was seriously deprived of oxygen, she finally pulled back.

Panting, she looked him in the eyes. “I’m going to miss you more than I can even stand. I needed a better goodbye than that.”

Trace didn’t disappoint. He backed her against the side of the bus, still holding her to him in mid-air. Her mind flashed to their escapade in the barn earlier and she felt the warmth spreading through her core. He ravished her mouth before she could even smile at the memory. When neither of them could take any more, he set her down gently and pulled her in close against his chest. “I’m going to miss you, too, Kylie Lou. So damn much.”

COVER REVEAL: SWEET HOME by Tillie Cole

Just My Opinion Book Blog is so thrilled to be a part of the COVER REVEAL for Tillie Cole and her latest novel “Sweet Home”.  Thank you so much to “Have Book Will Read” and Tillie Cole for letting us be a part of this reveal.

SWEET HOME

AUTHOR: TILLIE COLE

GENRE: MATURE CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

EXPECTED RELEASE DATE: OCTOBER 14th,2013

COVER DESIGNED BY: DAMON ZA

COVER REVEAL ORGANIZED BY: HAVE BOOKS WILL READ

 

BOOK SUMMARY:

“I had never put much thought into the story of Romeo and Juliet. Never once truly considered the plight of the ill-fated lovers or what they went through to be together. All that changed when my life spiralled onto a similar path.”

The University of Alabama.

Crimson Tide Football.

One unattainable senior star Quarterback.

And, me, Molly Shakespeare, an English transfer student.

All it took was one look. One fateful gaze into a set of chocolate brown eyes and my world shifted on its axis. Only weeks into life at a new American College and he entered my world — Romeo Prince. Romeo’s devastating bad-boy façade and stern tone captured my heart in an instant and for the first time in years, I’d found someone who ripped through my defences, I’d found my home, I’d found someone who made me… feel.

A darkness.

An uncontrollable anger.

An almost-realised NFL dream.

Romeo Prince, on the surface, had it all; looks, money and talent in abundance. In reality he was a pawn, a puppet tied to his parent’s rigid and masterful strings, casting his seemingly perfect life in misery.
One fateful meeting with the new English transfer student, and his life was thrust into turmoil. His choice was simple, choose duty or choose love. Both came with consequences, but one would change his life forever.

Mature New Adult novel – contains adult content, highly sexual situations and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up*

AUTHOR BIO:

Tillie Cole is a Northern girl through and through. She originates from a place called Teesside on that little but awesomely sunny (okay I exaggerate) Isle called Great Britain. She was brought up surrounded by her English rose mother — a farmer’s daughter, her crazy Scottish father, a savagely sarcastic sister and a multitude of rescue animals and horses.

Being a scary blend of Scottish and English, Tillie embraces both cultures; her English heritage through her love of HP sauce and freshly made Yorkshire Puddings, and her Scottish which is mostly demonstrated by her frighteningly foul-mouthed episodes of pure rage and her much loved dirty jokes.
