Release Blitz: Love Discovered in New York by Danielle Allen






SYNOPSIS:

The Rebel

Mya Washington is a rebel. Or at least, that’s what her family has always said. As the youngest of a set of triplets, she has always been the more rebellious of the three…even though she never considered herself a rebel.
Outspoken? Yes.
Rule Breaker? Sometimes.
Trouble Maker? Nev—occasionally.
Growing tired of being typecast and misunderstood, Mya moves to New York looking for a fresh start away from the life she grew up in and out of the shadow of her older sisters.  Striking out on her own may have put a strain on the family dynamic, but it's the new beginning Mya was looking for.
But after the unexpected death of her mother, she is blindsided yet again by a wedding invitation she didn’t see coming. Her father’s upcoming marriage only cements the wall she’s put up around her heart. Because if her father could be such an utter disappointment, why should she even attempt to open up to any man?
Enter Colton Davis.

EXCERPT:

“What are you doing?” I asked breathily, licking my lips and silently begging him to kiss me.
He didn’t answer at first. He looked at me predatorily before leaning down to nibble on my neck. The feeling of his teeth lightly grazing my skin while the threat of someone walking down the hallway and turning the corner made me clench tightly. His fingers gripped my hips and desire washed over me.  His hands caused goosebumps to erupt everywhere he touched.  My body hummed from the electric currant that flowed between us. The anticipation I felt for Colton’s kiss was almost unbearable.
“What are you doing?” I repeated, wrapping my arms around his neck.
Leaning in so that our lips were almost touching, Colton answered sexily, “You.”



AUTHOR BIO:

I am a married event planner, life coach and instructor.  Between my awesome friends and family and my amazing husband, I am constantly surrounded by love.  My goal at all times is to love what I’m doing and enjoy life.  I love shopping and football with equal fervor.  I’m an amateur movie critic (i.e. my husband and I watch and critique a lot of movies for fun). I love to read, but since I’ve been writing, I don’t read as much as I used to. I love music. A good lyric with a good melody can paint a vivid picture and invoke such a range of emotions. I have a soft spot for most mediums of creative, artistic expression. But music is probably my favorite.

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Summer and Autumn by Danielle Allen

~ Synopsis ~


Is it better to have loved and lost or to have never loved at all?

Sexy, successful and stylish, Autumn Jones believes in love. She believes in the all-consuming, mind blowing enormity of love. She believes in the euphoric state of loving and being loved. She believes in it because she’s had it once. And when it was lost, she was devastated, but she never stopped believing in the existence of love. Unwilling to settle, she learned from the past and moved on with the expectation that she’ll love again.

Beautiful, talented, and slightly jaded, Summer Wilson believes in sex. She believes in the all-consuming, mind blowing enormity of good sex. She believes that love exists, but Prince Charming does not. At least not for her. She’s seen the downside of love—insanity, heartbreak, infidelity, divorce—and she dates with the expectation that she won’t ever subject herself to that type of vulnerability. Instead, she chooses to love her family, her friends, and her work. And although she enjoys the company of men, her heart is hers and hers alone.

Best friends since elementary school, Autumn and Summer kick off the summer by embarking on a dating experiment. Unfortunately, expecting the unexpected doesn’t prepare them for what the dating world has in store.




~ Jenny's Review ~

I'm a huge fan of Danielle Allen and she didn't disappoint with Autumn and Summer. The story is unique and was unlike most of the books I've been reading lately.

Autumn and Summer are life long best friends. Autumn is looking for Mr. Right and Summer is looking for Mr. Right Now. Tired of dating the same kind of men they usually go for, Summer comes up with the idea of them setting up dates for the other. 10 first dates, in one month. We are taking a fun, funny, sexy ride while they look for men that could be what each want with a few little twists and surprises. The book was not overtly sexualized but it had a lot of scenes that gave me butterfly -induced feelings with some of the men (hello Xavier, Jordan and Boris...yum)which gave you hope that each of them find the man they were looking for. You could relate to both Summer and Autumn, which I loved. I could picture either one of them as my friend.

This was a great book that I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a book about finding the one in the most unexpected way.

I love shopping and football with equal fervor. I’m an amateur movie critic (i.e. my husband and I watch and critique a lot of movies for fun). I love to read and I enjoy sharing my love of books with anyone who will listen. I love music. A good lyric with a good melody can paint a vivid picture and invoke such a range of emotions.

Review: Come Away with Me (With Me in Seattle) by Kristen Proby

Synopsis
Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.

Luke Williams just wants the world to give him a break, so seeing yet another camera aimed at his face has him ready to pounce on the beauty behind the lens. When he finds out she has no idea who he is, he's intrigued and more than a little tempted by her. Natalie has a body made for sex, a sassy mouth and Luke can’t get enough of her, but he’s not ready to tell her who he really his.

Natalie is a no nonsense girl who doesn’t do well with lies and secrets. What will happen to this new relationship when she discovers what Luke’s hiding?

Jenny's Review
Come Away with Me by Kristen Proby has been on my TBR list for well over a year. I follow a lot of other blogs and fellow readers and they usually have such amazing things to say about this book. I rarely see someone give the book less than 4 or 5 stars. However, when I finished reading the book, it wasn't a WOW book for me.

Don't get me wrong, the story did hold my attention, hell, I finished it in less than a day even with work. However, I just felt that there was no real storyline. I loved the way Luke was written. He showed that he cared for Natalie in amazing ways, showered her with gift, compliments and attention, with a little side of possessive jealously that I sometimes like the male lead to have in a story. I just couldn't connect with Natalie. There just wasn't anything that make me care for her and that's sad. Also, like most people, I like a HOT sex scene and this book is chock full of them, however I felt that it was almost happening on ever other page. Who in the hell got that much stamina? The story just didn't come off as realistic to me and it felt rushed.

I'm giving it 3-stars because I really enjoyed Luke and the book did hold my attention but I did catch myself rolling my eyes a lot while reading it. I do have the other book in the With Me in Seattle series, I hope they are better then this one.

About the Author

Review: Take Me...Tonight by Alycia Futuero

 Synopsis
Have you ever met that sexy, hot man who raises your blood pressure with one look and just makes you want to be a very bad girl? What happens when one married woman meets that one man who makes her forget her daily life and all its responsibilities and brings out her hidden naughty side?

This is the story of Laire and the last night of her business trip for an educational conference that takes her out of her high-powered and hectic life as a university president, wife, and mother. She spends so much time making all the vital and necessary decisions that affect an entire university community and being everything to everyone else that she has no time to be the part of herself that she’s always wanted to explore.

Walking into the hotel bar changes her perspective when she sees sexy, masculine Jonathan, who has also been attending the same conference and saw what he wanted the moment he saw her there. When Jonathan offers to buy her a drink, she throws caution to the wind, deciding to forget her responsibilities and need for control for just one night, and hand herself over to this man who makes her want to see what it would be like to be the naughty bad girl she’s always fantasized about being. Can Jonathan help Laire to see that sometimes being bad is just so good?

This story very erotic and is for 18+ readers only.

This is a short little erotic novella with very intense, graphic and descriptive sex scenes designed to raise your libido and make you want to go find your man and make him very happy! Men like to watch porn. This little book is for women who prefer to read their porn and use their own imaginations to paint the pictures for them. I like to call it word porn. So enjoy a little word porn and have fun!

About the Author
I'm a woman and I have no problems saying that I enjoy sex and everything that goes with it. My books are about those relationships where couples explore their sexuality, and all the things that go with that, together. Sex is play time. Play time is for fun. So, if anything, sex should be fun.
I spent a part of my life not knowing or exploring the fun side of sex. Now, I appreciate what that brings to my life and how important that connection to my partner is. There is nothing more intimate than sex. Take the time to let your partner see and enjoy a side of you that no one else has the opportunity to see. Open your mind to the fun side of sex, you never know what you might find out about yourself and your partner. I promise you will be happy, you made that choice and I know for a fact, your partner will be happy as well.
I have an imaginative and creative mind and enjoy exploring where it takes me through my writing. I love to write and enjoy the people, I have come into contact with through my research and writing. You know who you are. :)
