Cover Reveal: Illicit Affairs By JO Matthews, Bec Rose, & N.J. Cole

Title: Illicit Affairs
Authors: JO Matthews, Bec Rose, & N.J. Cole
Genre: Erotica

Expected Release Date: 9.13.2013

Illicit Affairs
Illicit Affairs is a compilation of three erotic tales with women giving into their darkest desires and pursuing the forbidden.
Unexpected Journey by Jo Matthews
Sarah thought she met her soul mate in Mitch Chandler. High school sweethearts, they married right after graduation. Eight years later, he is a stranger to her and their marriage is on the rocks. In a halfhearted attempt to placate her, Mitch suggests a trip to Hawaii, but schedules a business meeting to write off the expense.
Aaron Johnson, Mitch’s friend and business partner, agrees to help with the presentation and plans are made for all three to go. What happens when Mitch backs out at the last minute to spend a romantic weekend with his secretary, forcing Aaron’s hand so that he has to accompany Sarah alone?
Will an innocent friendship turn into something more as Aaron’s attraction for Sarah grows? How will Sarah manage when she realizes that Aaron is awakening feelings in her that she’s never felt before? The sexual tension burns hot as these two embark on an unexpected journey that neither are prepared for.

The flight to San Diego was quick, though the one to Hawaii was considerably longer. Somewhere over the Pacific, Sarah fell asleep; the day had obviously taken a toll on her emotions and exhausted her. I wasn’t really tired myself, so I grabbed a magazine from the caddy in front of me and started flipping through it. Not ten minutes later, she shifted in her sleep and leaned over, her head resting on my shoulder.
I froze in place, unsure of what to do. Part of me was screaming to wake her up or at least move her, while the other part of me—the part that tended to take over in any man when there was a sexy goddess nearby—wanted me to savor the moment. I must have warred with myself for three minutes straight until I decided it didn’t matter. There was no harm in letting Sarah sleep on my shoulder on a plane to Hawaii. No harm at all, considering her husband was the one who put us on the flight together.
Unable to resist any longer, I turned my head into her hair and breathed in her intoxicating scent. She smelled like wildflowers and sunshine, and I couldn’t help but inhale more deeply as I closed my eyes.

Hot Summer Nights by Bec Rose
Annie Murphy had the picture perfect life. A beautiful home, a wonderful son, and a husband who adored her. It was every woman’s dream until her husband of over twenty years came out of the closet, leaving her a forty-five year old divorcee struggling to regain her confidence. Needing a distraction, she agrees to allow her son’s friend, Jamie, to spend the summer at her house while working as an intern. When Jamie, the cute female intern she’d been expecting turns out to be Jaime, the hot male intern with abs to drool over, it kicks Annie’s fantasies into overdrive. When she realizes that her desires are not one sided, it’s more than the temperature that causes some hot summer nights.
It seemed like forever before he finally made his way back downstairs, and I heard him rummaging through the fridge for something before he walked into the den carrying some homemade chocolate mousse. I moved to the main sofa, sitting down next to him so we were both within reach of the dessert.
“I hope you don’t mind, but I made this before dinner. I have a bit of a sweet tooth.” He grinned at me as he took a bite. I smiled back and dipped my spoon in, groaning at the amazing taste that exploded in my mouth when I took my first bite.
“Oh, god, Jaime, you’re going to make me fat if you cook like this all the time,” I laughed. When I heard no reply, I looked next to me, seeing Jaime staring at my lips with—if I wasn’t completely misinterpreting it—a look of lust in his eyes.
“Oh, um, I’m sorry?” He seemed confused.
“I just said that you’re going to make me fat if you keep cooking like this.”
“You don’t have to worry about that, Annie. You have an amazing figure if you don’t mind me saying.” I was surprised by his comment. It had been a long time since anyone had complimented me like that.
“Oh, well, um…thank you, Jaime,” I replied, embarrassed.
We finished off the dessert, both of us silently deciding to stay on the couch next to each other by settling back as Jaime changed the channel to watch an old movie. It was nice to sit with someone and not feel the need to fill the air with unnecessary conversation. Jaime was easy to just be with, and I was once again glad it had turned out to be a male houseguest instead of a female.

Second Chances by NJ Cole
Calla Moretti married her college sweetheart, Bill. Married life was great at first, but as his career had her dropping out of college and moving away from her family and friends, Calla struggled with her role as a wife and homemaker. Stress due to infertility and Bill’s affairs, had the marriage on the brink of failure. When she drives home in the middle of a thunderstorm and spots first a broken down motorcycle, then the sexy rider, she decides to take a chance and offer him assistance. Realizing fate brought her together with a man who could give her the one thing her husband couldn’t—a baby—Calla decides to take a chance. One romantic night, one big lie, will it save her marriage or fill her heart with more emptiness? Will this be the answer to her prayers? In life, are there truly second chances?

Staring into my eyes, he lowered his head. I could have moved, spoken, coughed…anything, but instead I lifted my chin and allowed him to kiss me.
At first it was chaste, it really was, but when I didn’t pull away, he didn’t either. I felt his tongue poke from between his velvet lips and lick over my lower one. I gasped, and he used that opportunity to find his way into my mouth. As my body began to shake, I groaned. I had to stop this. If I didn’t, I’d end up having sex with him—a total stranger. I knew that because I was ovulating, if I did sleep with him, there was a good chance that I’d become pregnant.
I’d become pregnant.
I had stiffened up at my epiphany, causing him to pull back. “Oh, shit. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done that.”
My mind was racing with the possibility of becoming pregnant tonight. I could go home to Bill in the morning and he and I could have sex. He’d think the baby was his, and maybe it would be, I reasoned with myself. He’d never know and our marriage would be fixed.

Review: Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen #1) By Lisa Renee Jones

Infinite possibilities….
Infinite passion…..
Infinite danger….

His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.

At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run. 

On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?

My Review


What just happened??
Are you kiddin me??!
The ending...

Bloody hell,I did not expect that!
This book had me feeling so damn confused, on edge, suspicious of everyone and the ending well that was extreme!

"Sharks only have the power you give them, baby. Own them. Don't ever let them own you. And they'll have to fight me to get to you anyway."

At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard down, the ghost’s of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.

Amy is being who? we have no idea.She is on the run from someone dangerous.The book starts off where amy is having to leave her life and run.Run for her life and for that she needs to start over in a new place with a new identity.This isn't the first time she has done this and it probably wont be her last.

Infinite possibilities….

Infinite passion…..
Infinite danger….

His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.

As she is waiting at the airport she meets Liam Stone. Liam is a hot mysterious,darkly entrancing recluse billionaire.He is a man who gets what he wants and he wants Amy.He wants to posses every part of her mind,body and soul.

But this is just what Amy is supposed to avoid.
She cant get attached to anyone
People will die, things will go bad
And she will have to run..again

Liam is determined to keep Amy and the more time she spends with him the more she wants to stay.
But Liam hold secrets of his own
Is he the bad guy or is he the hero?

"A thrill shoots through me at the obvious promise that he will be my lover, and there is no denying that I am seduced by this man, drawn to his confidence and dark good looks. To the gentle lion I believe will take control of everything around him, including me. The man who will demand much of me, and perhaps take more than I should give. And yet, beyond all reason, I want to experience those things. I want to experience him. It almost feels…necessary."

This book made me paranoid,every character that Amy met i felt like, hmmm you must be creepy, maybe it's you that's chasing it you? tell me!!!
This book had me reading really fast because I really just wanted to know what is going on and since I am an impatient person the wait was killing me!
By the end I was like, no no no I cant be finished already, pages must be missing!!!

I really liked Liam but it felt like he was hiding something,he was just too good at hiding his emotions. Liam and Amy may be two people from different worlds but they made sense together. She needs safety and Liam is her safe place. He grounds her and makes her forget about the bad stuff.

Now this handler dude..I have soo many questions! The ending and many other parts had me thinking that I had figured out who he/she was..
But then there is Meg < something is not right with her..
And Jared,hmm I don't know what to think about him but he isn't in my favorites list atm..

Oh I need the next book..please give me it now

Review: Infraction (Breach #2) by K.I. Lynn

Waking up in the hospital after a terrible car crash, Lila has a long road of recovery ahead of her. More than just her body, she must recover her heart after an altering declaration by Nathan.

With all that happened between them she must chose to forgive him and take him back, or sever all ties. Nathan has a hard road ahead of him to earn back her trust, and doing so will open her up to the possibility of being hurt again. A possibility Lila doesn’t think she can survive.

The secrets Nathan keeps buried, hidden from the world, of the life he used to lead are revealed. They tell the horror of what caused the scars on his body, mind, and heart.

Can Lila and Nathan push through all of the obstacles in front of them? Will the journey be their healing, or their destruction?

My Review

4.5 Incredible, Haunting, Broken, Nathan Loving Stars!!

Two Broken souls
Shattered hearts
Painful memories

Can Lila and Nathan heal and finally move forward?

This is book two of the Breach series and after reading Dissolution (Breach #1.5),a Novella from Nathan POV, which was heart-breaking and made me love Nathan even more, I really had to have this book..And then K.I.Lynn you awesome woman sent an ARC I was over the moon *happy dancing* :D

Infraction starts off where the previous book left off, Lila is at the hospital after the car crash she was in and things continue from there..

This book was a lot more about growth in Nathan and Lila's relationship they have a lot of issues to work on they both need help and fucking away problems or pushing each other away wasn't working at all..

Whilst the first book Breach focused more on their sexual relationship Infraction focused on Nathan and Lila getting better and being free from their past traumatic experiences.

"The mask was gone, and for the first time I was seeing the true Nathan without any inhibitions. He was raw and lay before me. More beautiful than usual in his agony."

Both the main characters are broken and lost until they find each other..struggling with their pasts and haunted by heartbreaking memories how do they improve their relationship..
Nathan needs to gain Lila's trust after he destroyed it in Breach. He is consumed with past guilt which is slowly eating away at him. Will he be able to forgive himself?

Lila has her own troubles and is scared to let Nathan in again but she also knows she cant live without him. I felt that Lila's character became stronger and more stable than how it was in the previous book.

We find out a lot more about Nathans past and why he did the things he did. You find out more about his demons and what haunts him and it makes you fall even deeper in love with his character! I just wanted to give him a big hug (among other things) and make him feel better..
To move forward Nathan needs to make peace with himself, his demons are in his head, his guilt, anger, frustration is all aimed at himself.

"After everything, there was still that rope that bound us together, pulling me to him."

The ending took me by surprise! And had me thing whatttttt? Thats it??
yes I had a mini panic attack until I saw that there is another book in the series *phew*

Overall I really enjoyed this book,a beautiful, intense, heartbreaking story filled with forgiveness and love..

"He was furious, fists clenched at his side, and I could tell he wanted an outlet. It was amusing to play with him, so I laid it on thicker, smiling and waving at him like I was on parade. He growled. My smile turned to a glare. Spoilsport."

Yes yes I thoroughly enjoyed this book! :D

Review: Dissolution (Breach #1.5) By K.I. Lynn

"I wondered if I was like a drug addict going through withdrawal. I had all the symptoms, my physical dependence on Lila showing its ugly self.

My depression and anxiety spiked, and I craved her more than I ever had before. I needed her."

5 Heart Rending Stars!

If you haven't read book 1 which is Breach you better get reading!

I think I just died a little inside!This short novella caused an uproar of emotion in me..Oh Nathan!Reading this made me fall for Nathan even more than before he is such a tortured soul and you just want him to be happy again!

This is just what I needed after reading Breach which is in Lila's POV you dont really understand Nathan and we dont know much about his past and what happened to him..

"I wouldn’t let what happened to her happen to Lila. I couldn’t. Lila would live. Lila would meet someone worthy and start a family. Lila would be happy.

But not with me.
A sob erupted from my chest, startling me."

This novella was brilliant, it built Nathans character and gave us an insight to what he was going through..And it was heart breaking! Nathan has a lot of demons he has to fight on a daily basis.Lila is the same as Nathan, they are both tortured souls with a fucked up pasts.They understand and need each other but Nathan let her go and now everything is worse than before..

Oh Nathan!
When the hell is book 2 being released bacause I need it.. right about NOW!

Review: Fear of falling By S.L.Jennings

I can’t remember the last time I felt completely safe. Security seemed more like a luxury to me, reserved for those who were fortunate enough to have picture perfect childhoods. For those who didn't bear the ugly scars that keep me bound in constant, debilitating fear. I've run from that fear my entire life. But when I met him, for once, I couldn't run anymore.

He scared the hell out of me in a way that excited every fiber of my being. It wasn't the tattoos or the piercings. It wasn't the warmth that seemed to radiate from his frame and blanket me whenever he was near. It was just…him. The scary beautiful man that threatened to alter 23 years of routine and rituals, and make me face my crippling fear.

My name is Kami and I am constantly afraid. And the thing that scares me the most is the very thing I want.

“Don’t worry,” he smiled, pulling me into the hard warmth of his chest. “I’ve got you. I’ll always catch you when you fall.”

And just like that, Blaine had staked his claim on the untouched part of me that no living soul had ever moved. He had captured every fear, every reservation, and crushed them in the palm of his inked hand.

My Review


An unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.

Everyone is scared of something we all fear things it may be simple as fear of heights and spiders to fear that gets a lot more irrational..fear or falling..fear of feeling too deeply..fear of love..
I believe something in your past has to trigger this fear (rational or irrational)..And that's how it is for Kami.

I didn't really know how to rate this book, it had me feeling so many emotions, so yeah hats off to S.L. Jennings because I felt it all, the anger,the frustration, the sadness, I was swept away with it.

“Life may not be pretty but it's always beautiful. We may only see the ugliness on the surface. The shit that only the world chooses to notice. But, if we dig deep, if we get to the heart of life, where there's no pain or fear, where we can just be who we are and love freely without judgement, it's really beautiful.”

Blaine and Kami's relationship goes through so much up and downs its like just when its getting good, just when you think things will start to improve..BOOM! Its all gone and its back to square one.
Both Blaine and Kami are broken souls just getting through life merely surviving until their lives crash together..

Blaine is a successful owner of a bar and is captured by Kami as soon as he sets his eyes on her.He just knows that she is different in all the right ways.He falls head over heels for her and this man is bloody awesome! He never gives up on her even when she pushes him away so many times. Ahh Blaine you beautiful man covered in tattoos and piercings yet he is such a softy he has a big heart and all he wants is to take away all of Kami's pain.But life doesn't work like that and you cant save everyone..

You're not scared of the dark.

You're scared of what's in it.

You're not afraid of heights.
You're afraid of falling.

You're not afraid of the people around you.
You're afraid of rejection.

You're not afraid to love
You're afraid of not being loved back

You're not afraid to let go 
You're just afraid to accept the reality that it's gone

You're not afraid to try again
You're afraid of getting hurt for the same reason

“I never give up on things I want. This… you and me… it’s inevitable. There’s no use in fighting, Kami. It’s going to happen. And when you are madly in love with me, the only thing you’ll regret is not falling for me sooner.”

Blaine was just perfect <3 He thought of everything and just kept on fighting for her..

Now Kami's character was soo complex with the self loathing and the abuse and all her fears.

"My name is Kami and I am constantly afraid. And the thing that scares me the most is the very thing I want."

I got it why she was how she was and all the issues.Sometimes when you hear something being said to you so many times as a child. you end up believing it. You think its the truth. She associated love with terror, pain, abuse, hurt, anger and Fear

And my heart ached for her she really had been through hell and back.
But still in parts of this book Kami really pissed me off I just wanted to slap shake her and make her see what everyone else was seeing!
I hated that she pushed Blaine away C'mon the guy can only take so much rejection!! I wanted her to get over herself and for once think about what he must be feeling.She was really selfish and I know she was scared but she isn't the only one with problems..

But hey I get it your cognitive process isn't the same you change, abuse changes you and makes you think negatively which was the problem with Kami..She always had that doubt and that fear.Her demons haunted her daily..

"...just remember, the storm doesn't last forever. It can scare you; it can shake you to your core. But it never lasts. The rain subsides, the thunder dies, and the winds calm to a soft whisper. And that moment after the storm clouds pass, when all is silent and still, you find peace. Quiet, gentle peace.” 

I loved Dom, please tell me he gets a book, pleeaaaassssseeeee!!
He needs to find someone aww he needs some love!
Overall a great book, a heartbreaking story about struggle and falling.. falling deep in love..

Review Quotes:
“The main character, Holly Scruggs, who has been beaten down by her mother, is such an inspiration! She never allows herself to fall into self-pity.
With the mysterious Theo's help, she discovers her true calling in life and the confidence she needs.”
~Sheila Hollinghead Amazon Reviewer

“The author was very descriptive; it was like she was painting every scene. The book is different from all other books I have read in its genre. Even the ending surprised me… I couldn't put this book down.”
~The Mystical World of Book Reviews

“My heart is bursting at the seams and my mind is empty now that I have just finished reading the last page... I was completely blown away by the life-altering transformation that we see Holly and Theo go through day by day. They slowly shed the filthy skin of selfishness and replace it with the selfless depth of love that they have for each other. This is a story of true and pure love at its finest, and it is an extraordinary end to an amazingly beautiful and captivating series.
I can't say enough good things about this series!”
~Shadowplay Amazon Reviewer

Author Bio:
Melissa Turner Lee is a stay-at-home-mom to 3 wild and very loud boys. She used to skip sleep at night to write, but now that they are in school writes in the daylight. She is married to a wonderful man she met when she was 17, back before texting and people wrote notes that might be in a trunk in her house. While dating, her then boyfriend, now husband told her his friend had pointed out that the picture he had drawn for art class long before meeting, that hung behind the door in his room, looked just like her.
The picture disappeared after the wedding and was never seen again. These events helped inspire Holly and Theo’s story.

My mouth fell open. Was he nuts? How was I supposed to answer a question like that?
I balled my hands into fists and put them on my hips. “What’s the matter with you?”
When he put his hands on his hips, I got upset for a moment before I realized he was still doing the mirroring exercise.
Ms. Jones suddenly yelled and clapped. “I love this. Love it! Everybody look at Holly and her partner. They aren’t just moving, they are conveying emotion with it. Brilliant!”
I went back to doing normal movements. And Theo continued to stare at me. “You look so familiar. I heard you say you just moved here, but did you move back? I mean, did you live here before…a long time ago maybe?”
“No.” I half-smiled and then bit my lip.
 He was exceptionally good looking. I’d been too irritated to notice at first, but the more I looked at him the warmer my cheeks grew. The way he stared at me didn’t help. It was intense and inquisitive, and he was too close. We weren’t touchy-feely at my house so this invasion into my personal space was especially uncomfortable.
“So you’ve never been here before?” His gray-blue eyes studied me even more.
 “Well…um…I’ve been to Chesnee before—to visit my grandmother before she died. Maybe you saw me around town then.”
He shook his head. “No, that’s not it. I’ve seen you up close, like this. I remember your eyes. They’re the color of the sea—just inside a coral reef, and your freckles are the stones of a volcanic island scattered along the sand. Your hair is like the sun setting over the water, shooting out orange rays in all directions.” He stared into my eyes even deeper. “You’re very pretty.”
The impact of his words slammed into me. I’d braced myself for an insult. That’s what I was used to. This was either the way he came onto girls for a hook-up, or more likely, some mean joke to get a good laugh going with the other kids. Anger bubbled up. I knew those kinds of tricks. Those were the kinds of things the kids I used to hang with did all the time. They played them on me too, when I no longer belonged in their circle.
My hands trembled, and my lips drew up to hold in the anger, but I refused to cry in front of this boy. I wanted to call him on his prank. I knew better than to think it was a real compliment, but I couldn’t think of anything clever to say.
The tears burned in my eyes despite my efforts.
“Forget this!” I shouted as I ran off the stage. Everyone’s stares bore into my back as I grabbed my backpack and made for the door. My head throbbed from ear to ear. I was dropping the class, and that was final.

Blog Tour/Guest Post/Giveaway: American Girl On Saturn By Nikki Godwin

Title: American Girl On Saturn

Author: Nikki Godwin

Release date: August 29th, 2013

Genre: Young Adult

Tour: Irresistible Reads Book Tours

Book Description:
The summer after graduation is supposed to be that first real taste of freedom - but not for eighteen-year-old Chloe Branson. Just as that breeze of freedom is making its way into her galaxy, her secret-service-agent dad drops a meteor-sized bomb of bad news on her and her sisters. An attempt has been made on the lives of Canadian boyband, Spaceships Around Saturn, during their USA tour, and the guys have to go into hiding ASAP. The only problem? In the midst of the crisis and media frenzy, their dad volunteered to hide the their house.

Six-year-old Emery is as ecstatic as any self-proclaimed Saturnite would be, but Chloe and her seventeen-year-old sister Aralie watch their summer plans crash and burn like a falling star. The SAS guys aren't happy with the situation, either. Bad boy Jules picks fights with Aralie about everything from his Twitter followers to his laundry, and heart-throb Benji can't escape Emery's fangirlisms for more than three minutes.

But after the super-cute Milo kisses Chloe during a game of hide-and-seek, she finally understands what Emery means when she talks about SAS being "out of this world." If this is what Saturn feels like, Chloe doesn't want to come back to Earth.

Guest Post - Inspiration

As much as I'd love to take credit for the idea of American Girl On Saturn, it was actually the idea of my sister, Emily. Many months ago, we were in the Taco Bell parking lot when she said, "You know what'd be a good book? If there was a boyband and something bad happened to them, so they had to go into hiding, and they ended up staying with some government agent and his family. And it'd be told from the point of view of the teenage daughter. You know, what it's like to have a boyband crashing at your house and spending your summer on lockdown."

Two weeks later, I was still thinking about this idea, so I asked her if she was planning on writing it. She said it'd be a fun book to read, but it wasn't "her type" of book to write. Then she said, "But you can write it if you want." I was on the couch that night with a bag of colored Sharpies and my One Direction notebook plotting American Girl On Saturn.

To be very honest, One Direction did inspire a lot of this book. How could they not? It's a book about a boyband, and they're only the most famous boyband in the world right now. I adore their music, and I admire their talent and drive to be the best they can be. I also very much respect them for taking on such an insane, hectic life at such young ages. Their music played in the background many nights while writing this.

But they aren't the only band who brought American Girl On Saturn to life. Punk-pop band Simple Plan influenced a lot of little things in this book (like Milo and Noah's middle names, the fact that the guys are from Canada, etc.) and rock band Hawthorne Heights inspired the fictional band Sebastian's Shadow, the main character Chloe's favorite band. Overall, a love for music in general inspired this book. Anyone who has ever fangirled over a band or stood in line for tickets or held tightly to an album to get them through a tough time will be able to relate to this book. Music is a universal language, and this story is a fun romance told from the point of view of a girl who gets to experience music from the other side.
About the Author:

Nikki Godwin is a Young Adult/New Adult author. She is a city girl who can’t live without Mountain Dew, black eyeliner, Hawthorne Heights, and candles from Bath & Body Works. When not writing, she’s not-so-secretly stalking her favorite bands. She may or may not completely love One Direction.

Book Blitz- Naughty Girl by Scarlett Metal

#1 Naughty Girl Series
