Excerpt

COLE

T. J. straddles me. Part of me can’t believe it but part of me needs it, because it feels like home. T. J. feels like home.
I twist a lock of her shiny, black hair around my finger, fascinated and wrap my hand further and drag her face closer to mine. I don’t even know what I’m saying, because then I’m kissing her, and everything’s right with the world.
She pulls away a little and I let go of her hair to nuzzle her neck. “This smell, my God, Teej, I thought I’d never have this again.”
She slides her hands up my chest and moves up and up and down, my eyeballs roll back. My head hits the headboard with a loud thunk.
We stay there for a moment, my hands roaming of their own volition, taking in her waist, the sides of her hips, her back.
“Baby…” I whisper. I’m worn out and blown away. I feel washed clean but also, hungry. So hungry. “I need you,” I rasp.
Still I’m not sure. I want to throw her down and surge inside her, but I don’t know where her head is at.
“T. J.?” I ask.
“Mmmn?”
“What’s your first name?”
“Oh.” She looks down shyly. “Teresa.”
I say it the way she says it, “Teh-ray-sa.”
Even though there are layers of clothes between us she begins to ride me. The need to take control is strong. She’s been withholding for so long and I want to grab and make her receive what I want to give her. But I don’t. I let her torture me with the up and down. She uses her palms on my chest for leverage.
T. J. is listening to some beat I can’t hear, dancing to a rhythm set to drive me wild. She slows the pace, loving the power high, and the fact she can still torture me and I’ll take it. The slide of jeans against jeans is torment, the pressure I’m feeling behind my zipper uncomfortably tight, but I can feel her heat and I let her run the show. For now.
“Mouth,” I say, fisting my hand in her hair. “Give me your mouth.”
She shakes her head slightly, laughing, pulling gently against my hold.
“Really Teresa? You’re going to deny me now? You’re going to make me come after you?”
More laughter.
Enough waiting.
I flip her to her back.
She gives a little feminine shriek, and I flood with power. My girl, my woman, my Teresa. My T. J.
Have I learned nothing?
I close my eyes.
“Cole? What’s wrong? Cole?”
I shake my head to clear it. When I open my eyes, it’s all her.
“Nothing, Luscious. Just getting my head on straight. Prioritizing. First, your pleasure. Second, your pleasure. Third, that you know I’m yours, for your pleasure.”
She laughs.
“There we go,” I say. “That’s the song I want to hear.”
I take her jeans off. I kiss the inside of her ankle. “Te adoro.”  I flutter my lips on her soft skin, slowly working my way to her paradise. Caressing the tips of my fingers up her calves sending tiny sparks of lighting to please her. I kiss the back of her knee.
“Te quiero.” I kiss the sensitive skin on her inner thigh. I look her right in the eyes. “Te amo.”
Her breath hitches.

Declan (Wild Men #8) by Melissa Belle Review

Declan (Wild Men Book 8)Declan by Melissa Belle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Melissa Belle hits it in the net with Declan (Wild Men #8). In this story, Declan Wild needs to get married to be considered for a minority stake in the Montana Wild Kings. Mia Carroll needs to get married to take over her family’s company. They agree to a marriage of convenience for a year, but their feelings have other ideas. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult readers.

Declan was a heartfelt and enjoyable read. Declan is the brother of Cameron (Wild Men # 7). I love Declan and Mia. They have amazing chemistry. Declan is selfless and caring. Mia is sweet and hard working. They both were so focused on work. They did not do relationships. I love that they were forced into a situation that gave them an opportunity to find their other half.

I appreciated how ranch life played a role in this novel. I also enjoyed the other Wild men in the story. Declan was skillfully written and hard to put down. I recommend this book to people who enjoy marriage of convenience hockey romances. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Easy(Chicago Blaze Hockey) by Brenda Rothert Review

Easy: A Chicago Blaze Hockey RomanceEasy: A Chicago Blaze Hockey Romance by Brenda Rothert
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Brenda Rothert lights the lamp with Easy (Chicago Blaze Hockey). In this story, hockey star Eric Zimmerman (aka EZ/Easy) goes home to Greentree Falls, Wisconsin after avoiding it for ten years. He inevitably runs into the girl who broke his heart; the girl whom he never stopped loving, Allie Douglas. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult readers.

Brenda Rothert does a great job getting you in the character’s heads. It had me pretty much experiencing every emotion. Eric is a good guy. He is a great son/nephew. I like that his perspective changed about his breakup with Allie. Allie is an amazing heroine. She is selfless and caring. She had to grow up early after her parents died. She is the opposite of her sister, Jenna, who added some interesting drama to the story.

Easy is a wonderful addition to the Chicago Blaze series. I love that some of Eric’s teammates came to Greentree Falls to help celebrate his birthday. I am looking forward to reading Jonah’s story next. I recommend this book to people who enjoy second chance sports romances. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Coasting by Elise Faber Cover Reveal

Calle Stevens wasn’t what one would call a risk-taker.
She was steady. She was even. She was . . .Pregnant. Oh God.

Coasting by Elise Faber releases on June 15th!


Calle Stevens wasn’t what one would call a risk-taker.

She was steady. She was even. She was . . .

Pregnant.

Oh God. How was she pregnant? Well, she knew the how part, but that wasn’t the point. Mistakes happened, condoms failed, birth control pills didn’t work, and . . . she was pregnant by a man who’d broken up with her via text and then readily offered to sign away his parental rights when she’d told him she was keeping the baby.

Her life was ruined.

She’d just been hired as an assistant coach for the professional hockey team, the San Francisco Gold. She didn’t have any family in the area, didn’t have a partner. How was she going to have a baby?

But then Cooper.

A star player for the team, he’d found out about the baby and had insisted on coming with her to her first appointment, then had held her hair back when she’d spent the majority of her time christening the porcelain goddess before coming to the second, and then the third, and the fourth and—

In fact, as much as she tried to push him away, he refused to keep his distance. And then when she was having a particularly weak moment, feeling fat and gross and completely unappealing, he held her like she was precious and . . . he kissed her.

Then didn’t stop.

Calle didn’t know what was scarier, the kiss or that she didn’t want him to stop either.
