Sneak Peek for Drunkdial by Penelope Ward




From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.  

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him. 

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions. 

I didn’t think he’d call me back. 

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become. 

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets. 

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake. 

A complete STANDALONE.

After that evening, I hadn’t heard back from him for a few days.
Then, one night, a text came in from the same phone number I recognized as Landon’s. It was the first time he’d texted me.
I looked down to find he’d sent a photo.
I gasped.
It was a heavily tatted man set against the backdrop of the ocean at sunset. Oh, my. It was him—a selfie.
Fuck. Me. He was beautiful.
I wouldn’t have even known it was Landon were it not for the blue eyes I recognized instantly. The shaggy, caramel hair I remembered from the past was now a darker shade of brown and shorter, cropped closer to his head. His arms and his chest were inked, his body so perfect that if I squinted, it almost resembled carved stone.
I couldn’t stop looking at him. My eyes wanted nothing more than to explore the ridges and valleys of his stunning body.
Was this a cruel joke?
This was not Landon!
But, it was.
With my thumb and middle finger, I kept zooming in and out, examining the details of the ink across his chest and on his arms. There was really nothing sexier than a guy with perfect arms and a full sleeve tattoo.
Even though his lips seemed fuller than I recalled, they still curved into a familiar grin that oozed confidence. The eyes and that smile were the only traces of the boy I remembered. I wished I could’ve leapt through the screen to smell him, touch him.
“Hi, Landon,” I whispered, for a brief moment talking to the boy inside, not the man in front of me.
This Landon was the polar opposite of the Ivy League yuppie image previously in my head. The only thing the man pictured might have majored in was badassery. He looked like a rockstar, a rule breaker, displaying a sense of arousing danger—someone who must have had women from all walks of life drooling over him for the sheer fact that either they couldn’t have him or shouldn’thave him. It suddenly became clear why, as he’d alluded to, a woman might have been begging him for sex. That made me wonder if he had any secret tattoos in spots I wasn’t allowed to see.
God.
A fire was burning inside of me, and I knew it was my crush exploding into a full-blown obsession.
A self-conscious feeling came over me. If I was scared to show him a picture of myself before, now I was really hesitant.
The message that went along with the photo simply read:
Now show me you.

Review for The Perfect Bastard by LK Collins


CA➜ https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B074TTR933

What is the one thing you shouldn't do when your wife leaves you? Sleep with your best friend's sister.

It's too bad Roan Reddick never got that piece of advice before he fell into bed with Mia Cavalano. She's smart, sassy, and sexy as hell. She's also the only woman to flip his world upside down since his wife. And she's leaving for college in two days, which is good considering he's not looking for a relationship, not now, not with the agony that lives inside him from his past. But Roan can't kick the craving he now has for Mia.

One choice changed everything.

After years away, Mia realizes they just aren't meant to be. So she vows to keep her focus on her career and forget about the one-night stand that rocked her world so long ago. But when work transfers her back to Boston, a place that holds so many memories, she has no choice but to go. All she has to do is stick to her plan and keep her focus on work, which should be easy, right?

Besides, in a city of half a million people, how hard can it be to avoid the perfect bastard?

BONUS BOOK INCLUDED! After reading The Perfect Bastard which ends around the 50% mark, you can enjoy UNPLUGGED in its entirety. We are including this bestselling novel as our free gift to you. In UNPLUGGED you'll meet Merritt, an alpha male with a dirty, sexy, luscious mouth. He'll screw you senseless while talking filth. Prepare to have the panties melted right off you while reading this story about a week of sex with no strings attached, gone wrong.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Both The Perfect Bastard and UNPLUGGED are full-length stand-alone novels with an HEA, no cheating, and no cliffhanger. These stories contain mature subject matter. Not intended for those under 18, but those over will thank us later...happy reading!



My 5 Star review:

I am so in love with this book! It was the perfect mix of love, lust, romance, and raw emotions!
I am in love with Roan. While reading this book it didn't take long to fall for this character. He has been through so much in his life time. Then to be left behind with two sweet innocent girls breaks my heart.
Mia is a very strong willed character and I love her. She is one of the guys one minute but then she is still such a woman.
This story will melt your heart over and over again. The sadness of this story will crush you but these character are way too damn strong to leave you broken.
LK Collins you amaze me with every book you write. I know I say that after reading each book you write. BUT this book is on a whole new level.
To me this is a family man book with a twist and I love it.

About the Author:

LK Collins is the naughty alter ego for the husband-and-wife duo behind multiple bestselling and international bestselling novels. This real-life couple is downright dirty in the bedroom, which bleeds through the pages of their steaming hot stories. While LK writes the books, Mr. Collins, the tattooed god himself, is the mastermind behind so much of the page-turning sexiness. 

If you are looking for a scorching read with chemistry so intense it jumps off the pages, then an LK novel is for you. From stand-alones to series, their stories will have you blushing and panting, ready to reread them the moment you’ve finished. The heroes are alpha, demanding, filthy-talking men that will do anything for their girl…or to get them.

My 5 Star Review


I literally just finished Crave and I feel like my soul has been stabbed. I have no idea how to feel and what to think right now.

I mean Kason opens up to Adeline and now she knows why he did what he did. But what he tells her leaves me with my mouth hanging open!
Then she digs a little deeper to get his walls to come down even more then boom! He tells her just a little more and all I can say is his babysitter is a bitch!
Then I put myself back together again and continued reading....and that is the moment that EK Blair pierced soul.
I will not lie to you, reading the last chapter ripped my heart and soul out. Once I got to the last word of this book. I had tears streaming down my face. I also wanted to jump in my kindle and whoop Liam's ass too!
This series is totally not what I expected. This book will touch on things that are not talked about very much. I love these characters and my heart broke for them!
Ek Blair I need more but I am so scared. Bravo!!!!!!

Review for Start Me Up by Maggie Riley



Jack Willis is every bit the start-up prodigy--seriously smart, inventive, and totally sexy. With his incredible mind, extraordinary body, and a bank account with more zeroes than you can count, he would give the sharks from Shark Tank a run for their money. Everyone from Wall Street investors to drooling house wives wants a piece of him. Everyone except Libby Hanson, that is.

Libby Hanson is a crafty, curvy bombshell, more accustomed to macrame and crochet than fine dining and stealth engineering. She reads, she writes, she drinks wine with her cat...and she's never even heard of Jack Willis until she lands an interview that will change her life forever.

Jack needs a book written--and fast. His sexy new car is about to be released on the market, and a New York Times bestselling book would be the perfect marketing push to get his business to the next level. He could have any writer he wants: but he wants Libby. She's feisty, gorgeous, and has a way with words like nobody else.

To write his book, Libby has to see everything he does. She gets thrust into a brand new world of A-list red carpet events, meetings with executives, and long nights in the workshop that grow increasingly intimate. But to write a bestseller, Libby needs more. Their connection is off the charts, but she'll need to discover the real Jack--the man behind the inventions, the man who's steadily stealing her heart. Jack has secrets--lots of them--and Libby will do anything to get the scoop. With Jack's true nature coming to the surface, Libby finds herself torn--will she expose the man everyone is dying to get the dirt on? Or will she protect the man she is slowly but surely falling for?

My 5 Star Review


Start Me Up is a very cute fast read. These characters will have you very entertained.
Jack is a very wealthy man. Some may think he is a playboy and or came from money. But people don't know the real Jack Willis and he intends to keep it that way.
Well that is till he has a weird addicting ghostwriter come into his world to help him write a book. A book that he really doesn't want to be written in the first place.
Libby Hanson is my favorite because she is so normal, weird, strange, and unique. I absolutely love who the Author described her. When reading this part you can envision her perfectly.
Her is far from the perfect supermodel and is drop dead gorgeous with a killer body. No my fellow book nerds, she is one of us! And I love it!!!
Anyway this book is super cute and it will touch you. What do I mean?!
Well if you have ever built walls around your heart to never let people in...Then one day that special person comes into your world and knocks your socks off. This book is 100% for you.

It is like the perfect hot romantic lifetime movie, than can only be played at night when the kids are asleep or at grandma's house. 

About the Author:
Maggie Riley is a contemporary romance author whose interests include red wine, sushi, strolls through Central Park, and steamy men- both real and imaginary. She lives on the Upper East Side with her German Shepherd, Penny.
