I'm a heroin addict. A junkie. A whore. I'll do anything to get my next fix.

Anything.

Including walking right onto the property of Austin's most ruthless and feared drug lord to beg for some H. I don't know his name, only that people call him Boss. Oh, and that he won't think twice to put a bullet in my head.

But like I said, I'll do anything to get my next fix. Even if it costs me my life.

Or changes it forever.

Jagger-ebook.jpg

Blurb

I sell drugs. Heroin to be specific. And I'm fucking good at my job. Enough to fight my way to the top position, controlling all of Austin's supply.

So what if I had to kill the previous boss to do it. I do what has to be done. Never cared about consequences because I never had anything to lose.

Until I met Miri. My doll. She's my weakness and somehow, my enemies found out about her.

If they hurt her, they will regret the day they ever heard my name. Boss. They call me Boss for a reason. What I say goes, including the price on the heads of anyone who dares to fuck with what belongs to me.

My Miri.

Meet Heather Leigh
heather c leigh bio.jpg

Heather C. Leigh is the author of the Amazon best selling Famous series. She likes to write about the 'dark' side of fame. The part that the public doesn't get to see, how difficult it is to live in a fishbowl and how that affects relationships.

Heather was born and raised in New England and currently lives outside Atlanta, GA with her husband, 2 kids, and French Bulldog, Shelby.

She loves the Red Sox, the Patriots, and anything chocolate (but not white chocolate, everyone knows it's not real chocolate so it doesn't count) and has left explicit instructions in her will to have her ashes snuck into Fenway Park and sneakily sprinkled all over while her family enjoys beer, hot dogs, and a wicked good time.

My favorite authors are Dan Wells, Ken Follett, and Stephen King.

Happy reading!


{{NEW RELEASE & REVIEW}} STRIPPED DOWN by Emma Hart

 
STRIPPED DOWN BANNERavailablenow

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00035]


What do you get when you mix a bottle of tequila, a single mom moonlighting as a stripper, and her sinfully sexy boss with an impulsive side?

Married. You get married.

Rich. Demanding. Hot. Crazy.

That was Beckett Cruz in a nutshell.

Not to mention wild, determined, dangerous, and forbidden.

He was my boss—and, after a drunken moment of insanity, my new husband.

An annulment was impossible... so was keeping him.

I was taking my daughter and leaving, determined to give her a quieter life.

But Beckett Cruz had never taken no for an answer.

And he wasn't about to take mine.

What happens in Vegas... might just keep you there.

“Beck?” I managed to get his name out just before he opened the front door. “Yeah?” He spun back to face me, his dark eyes unreadable. I turned my face to the side so I could see him fully. “You don't have to go,” I said softly. “You can stay. Only if you want to though.” He rubbed his hand down his face, his eyes never leaving mine, then walked back into the kitchen toward me. I stood up away from the fridge as he stopped right next to me. Slowly, he touched his hand to my face, his fingertips teasing my hairline. His dark gaze searched mine, and my heart jumped into my throat as the usual tingles his touch sparked danced down my neck. Then, he slid his hand into my hair, allowing the blonde strands to fall away from his fingertips. “Do I want to go home to my big-ass house with its cold emptiness?” he asked in a low voice. “Or go to the club where half the girls there still see me as a mountain to be conquered? Not particularly, Blondie. I'd rather stay here. Even if there will be a demand for movies and water and foot rubs from a tiny, sick person.” “You can.” My voice was quiet, like his. Even if my internal screams from self-preservation and vulnerability were deafeningly loud as they told me I was a fool, that he had
to go, that this would never be enough for him. “Do you want me to?” His question was... honest. Raw. Hesitant. Like he didn't want me to answer. “Do I want you to stay here in my tiny house so my daughter can fall more in love with you than she already is? Not really. But...” Don't be a fool, Cassie. Don't admit you want him to stay. He's just going to hurt you. “I don't exactly want you to go either.” “For her, or for you?” “I don't want to answer that question.” “If I kissed you right now, would you ram your knee into my cock?” “I'd briefly consider it, but I probably wouldn't do it.” His lips twitched to the side. “You just answered the question.” Then, of course, he cupped the back of my head, and he kissed me. It was slow, sweet, gentle. And I didn't consider kneeing him in the balls for a single second. Beck pulled back and trailed his hand down my arm before he finally let me go. “I'm going home to get changed and then come back. Do you need anything while I'm gone? For CiCi? You?” “I don't...” I sighed and chewed back my pride. “I meant to go to the store today after work to get some stuff like bread, milk... important stuff. But now I can't.” “I can get it. Just tell me what you need.” I bit the inside of my lip, then nodded. “Okay. Let me write it down.” I walked through into the front room with him hot on my heels and grabbed the notebook and pen from under the coffee table. A few things were already scrawled down, so I added a couple more things, including more medicine. I tore the sheet off the notebook, stood, then gave it to Beck. “Let me get my wallet.” He grabbed my wrist, stopping me. “I'm not taking your money.” I lifted my gaze to his. “You can't pay for my groceries.” “I can and I will.” “You can't and you won't.” “I can and I will.” “You can't and you won't.” “I can do this all day, baby. I'm stubborn as fuck.” His eyes told me he wasn't lying. “And we all know I'm a brat about the word no. So, I can, I will, and I'm going to. If I can't help you by buying a measly eight items, I'm an asshole who shouldn't be allowed around other people.” “You can't buy my groceries,” I repeated. It was a lame argument. I was going to lose, but I'd fight until I went down. Beck's eyes twinkled as he leaned in. “Don't worry. If you really want to pay me back, I'll take a blow job. I imagine your lips around my cock will be a pretty good thank you.” My jaw dropped as he backed off with a wink. “Mouth open already, Cassie? Enthusiasm. I like that.” I snapped my jaw shut and glared at him. “You're a dirty pig.” “I know. But I've got fifty bucks that says you'll be sucking my dick by bedtime. If you don't agree...” He shrugged one shoulder, his lips curved in that dangerous smirk. “If you're lucky, I'll bite it.” “I'll take that as I'm in for a good time.” One more wink, complete with expanding grin, and he was gone. Motherfucking asshole.

Once again Emma has wrote a book that will capture your heart, squeeze it to death then squeeze a little more. There was not one part of this book that I didn't fall in love with. With an alpha male who was sex on legs and make your ovaries burst but he was kind caring and stole my heart.

I was so lost in the story I was gutted when I realized I had read the last word. 
Stripped down is so much more than a catchy title and great book cover the story between the pages tells a tale of 2 strippers, 1 who has made his life a success and 1 who does what she does to provide for her daughter.

Cassie is a single parent and with the help of her parents she works at the strip club, however her father is poorly and their insurance doesn't cover everything so she helps her parents with their bills...but they just keep adding up. When they don't get the results they wished for Cassie finds herself struggling at work and as a stripper it isn't good not to have her head in the game.

Beckett Cruz is the co owner of a couple of strip clubs, Beck knows the life of a stripper and knows what it takes but the girl who is on the stage is no good for business and he wants to get to the bottom of he problem. After much talking and trying to get Cassie to go home, they find themselves drinking Alcohol and enjoying their time spent together.

One thing leads to another and after leaving the club they continue on their travels only to wake the next morning together and both wearing Wedding Rings. Both of them are in agreement that they need an annulment and the sooner the better...but that doesn't seem to be on the cards.

Whats in store for this couple?...One click and find out you wont be disappointed!!!

{{NEW RELEASE & REVIEW}} EL DIABLO by M. Robinson



RELEASE BLITZ
EL DIABLO
USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR M. ROBINSON
COVER DESIGN: THE FINAL WRAP
RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 30TH, 2016





I was ruthless.
I was feared.
I had sacrificed. Myself. Her. Everything...
Living in a world where I was worth more dead than alive was a choice. I was a bad man, never claimed to be anything else. I’ve done things I’m not proud of. Seen things that can’t be unseen. I’ve caused pain that I can’t undo.
It was all my choice.
Every decision.
Every order.
Right and wrong never mattered.
Until her.
She was under my protection, until she became my obsession.
But who was going to save her...
From. Me. The devil himself.

Fate brought us together. Destiny destroyed us.





“Go stretch again, cariƱo,” I ordered in a dominant tone. Nodding to the barre.

“I’m fine,” she stubbornly replied. Shaking her legs and arms out. Getting back into position, looking at me through the mirror.
I cocked my head to the side, arching an eyebrow. She narrowed her eyes at me, but begrudgingly listened. I pressed play, allowing the melody to once again take over. She placed her leg on the lowest barre, making her ass stick out in my direction.
Tempting me.
She closed her eyes, needing to get lost in the music, wanting to push away all the negative thoughts, already feeling discouraged. I stood, taking off my suit jacket. Rolling up the sleeves of my collared shirt as I stepped onto the hardwood floor. I slowly came up behind her, catching her off guard.
She froze, turning around, opening her eyes. Peering up at me through her lashes. “What are you doing?”
I leaned forward against her ear, grinning. “I’m helping you stretch.” Getting down on my knees in front of her.
Her eyes dilated. The feeling of disappointment replaced with nothing but lust. She placed her arms out to the side, resting up against the barre, supporting her weight. I grabbed her ankle, lifting it up in the air, rubbing along her leg as it was fully stretched, before setting it on the lowest barre. Running my other hand up her side, easing her over toward the extended leg. She understood what I was doing, reaching for her ankle, stretching. Standing back up, bringing her arms above her head, I caressed along her leg again, casually turning her torso so her leg was still placed on the barre behind her.
Her breathing hitched as I touched her all over her lower body. My lips softly kissing the inside of her thigh to where she wanted my mouth the most.

For me El Diablo is M's BEST book to date and its MY number 1 book of 2016!!!

When I seen the cover and all the teasers for El Diablo I was excited and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. After reading M's other books I knew I was in for a treat, however this book exceeded all expectations. M's writing was impeccable, she drew me in and she made me think...somewhere close to half way through reading I thought I saw the twist, whilst reading the rest of the book I had an angel sat on one shoulder whispering "she isn't going to go there, this isn't what you think"...yet, the devil on my other shoulder was smirking whilst telling me "yep, she is going there, It's exactly what you think".

I had to put my kindle down on many occasions and actually messaged my co/blogger telling her that at 15% I knew this book was going to be EPIC, I kept her updated throughout the day telling her my feelings but never giving anything away. When I finished the book, I messaged her my last messaged saying I was ruint, my head was fucked and I was emotionally drained...she replied saying "she needed this book" I succeeded in making her hungry for this book.

El Diablo is Captivating, Calculating, Overwhelming, Dominating, Intense, Desirable, Exhausting, Mezmorising and a whole lot more!
This man was hot and cold, passionate and very Raw. He knew exactly what he was, he was under no illusion and when you finish the book neither will you be!

" I'm not a good man Sophia, but you make me want to be one"

"I'l handle it like I handle my Cock...Assertive"

"Don't knock on the devil's door, sweetheart, and expect him not to answer."

"I'm the wolf, the one your momma warned you to stay away from"

"Didn't I tell you not to provoke me? You mess with the devil, sweetheart, you get the fucking horns."

"Every Devil needs and Angel and she was mine"

Im not going to tell you about this story as I will leave that to the Devil himself, nothing I could say would do his story justice. Just know that he is a man your are just going to love to hate. Im in love with the Devil and Hell is where I will stay whilst I recover from this MASSIVE book hangover!!!

{{NEW RELEASE & REVIEW}} WHEN STARS COLLIDE by Micalea Smeltzer @msmeltzer9793




Title: When Stars Collide
Series: Light in the Dark #2 
Author: Micalea Smeltzer
Genre: New Adult
 Release Date: August 30, 2016

We were like two stars orbiting each other—dancing around the possibility that one day we might collide. When we finally did, we opened up a black hole, obliterating everything around us. No one would be the same.

Least of all, us.


Waking up in Vegas married to the guy of your dreams sounds like a good thing, right? Not when you’re Thea Montgomery and said guy is your brother’s best friend. 

Thea and Xander have always avoided the connection between them because her brother would never approve. Now, they’re married— the strongest bond you can have as a couple—and they’re not even a real couple…unless they want to be. 

Thea wants an annulment immediately, but Xander’s waited too long to see her become his and he won’t let her go easily. 

If she wants a divorce, fine, but he wants the summer to convince her that he’s the one. If at the end of the summer she still wants to end their marriage he’ll sign the papers, but until then…


All is not fair in love and war.

Unedited and subject to change.

Holy mother of all hangovers.

I’d succumbed to the lure of Vegas and gotten completely wasted. Granted, that’s what everyone did in Las Vegas but I like to think I usually have more sense than the social norm.

I rub my eyes and blink them open. The hotel room comes into formation around me. The walls are a warm golden color and the flat screen on the wall plays some home improvement show. I can see the bathroom from the bed, the tiled walls and large soaking tub.

I roll over onto my side, hoping I can sleep off the hangover, and reel back.

“Oh my God,” I cry, flailing in bed.

My legs kick the sleeping guy beside me.

Not just any sleeping guy.

Oh no.

Xander Kincaid, my brother’s best friend, lays in the bed beside me.

His dark hair tumbles over his forehead and his cheeks are covered with several days worth of scruff. His chest is bare and…holy shit. He’s naked.

I look down.

Oh God, I’m naked too.

“What’s wrong?” He asks, reaching his left hand out to pull me closer to him. That’s when I see it.

“Is that a wedding band?” I scream shrilly.

His eyes narrow. “You don’t fucking remember?”

I shake my head and look at my own hand. A thin silver band rests on my finger. “What did we do?”

He sits up in bed and I try to ignore how adorably rumpled he looks with his hair sticking up.

Everything begins flooding back to me in quick bursts.


Drinks. 

Kissing. 

Laughter. 

Confessions of love and desire. 

A wedding chapel. 

Vows. 

Rings. 

A contract. 


“We’re married,” I whisper. “Holy shit.” It’s all I’ve ever wanted—to be with Xander, but not like this. Never like this. “My brother is going to kill us.”


***ARC provided in exchange for an honest review - Naomi / Scandalous Book Blog***

I loved this book, the story was well developed and I was hooked from beginning to end. Not only was it sweet fun and sexy it was deep, sad and gut wrenching. This was an emotional rollercoaster I was happy to ride from the very fist page till the last. I laughed, cried, swooned and got angry but never once did I put this book down.

Thia and Xander, wake up in the Vegas hotel room MARRIED. Thia wants a divorce and Xander wants a chance. This couple have skirted round their feeling for years, with Xander being Thia's brothers best friend he has always been around and she has always loved him. Xander's had feelings for Thia since she was 13 but with Cade continuously telling him nothing can happen he has never pursued her.

Xanders dreams have come true and if Thia is honest hers have too but she is scared of the fall out with her brother and agrees to a summer together but only in secret. Xander isn't happy but will do anything to keep her. 

We all know what secrets can do to people and this couple have more than their fair share to tell, between their relationship status, Thia's family and Xander's career their secrets may just be their destruction or the beginning of their HEA!!!
