Cover Reveal and giveaway: Unspoken Words by HP Davenport

 (The Unspoken Love Series, Book #1) 


Two lives…as close to perfect as they can be.

Camryn Townsend has everything she’s always dreamed of…an amazing family, supportive friends, and the perfect job. Everything a girl could want. Or is it? A trip back to her childhood home threatens to unravel her web of perfection.

Her problem…she’s in love with her best friend and she’s too scared to sacrifice their friendship for a love she’s always wanted. 

Jamie Banks’ life is the epitome of perfection. His company is thriving, his band is on the cusp of stardom, and the girl he loves is returning home.

His problem…the girl he loves has been his best friend for as long as he can remember and he’s not sure he’s ready to sacrifice his best friend for a lover. Pursuing a relationship with the possibility of losing her has him second-guessing everything he knows.

Unspoken words are the only thing standing in their way.

 “Yo, you like what you’re seeing? The girls sure have formed a fan club out there,” Christian yells across the table. He is being such a ball breaker today. What the fuck? Do I have ‘I’m in love with your sister’ written on my fucking forehead?  

“You gonna let those guys try and make a move on the girls, or are you going show them what you got?” he continues with a raised eyebrow challenging me.

Sitting here at the table watching the girls dance is killing me. My fists are clenching under the table as I notice guys approaching the girls. The girls aren’t paying them any mind until one dude walks up behind Camryn. He stands there, eyeing her up like she’s a freaking piece of candy. He hasn’t touched her yet, but the idea of him being that close to her has my blood boiling. My jaw begins to clench, and my body tenses. I look over at Christian, and he has this shit eating grin on his face. 

Not being able to stand it anymore, I grab my beer and take a long swig. It’s nearly empty, so I motion to Lincoln to order me another one then I head to the dance floor. Camryn’s back is toward me so she doesn’t see me approaching, but Morgan does and she has a huge smile on her face.

Paralegal by day, romance genius by night! When I'm not tending to my furry children and my handsome husband, I am seamlessly carving beautiful stories from my mind in my comfy PJs in New Jersey.

Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: Quinn by J.C. Cliff

Title: Quinn Series: Undaunted Men #1
Author: J.C. Cliff
Genre: Badass Military Romance
Published: February 23, 2016
They’ve done all kinds of work, from private investigations to highly classified governmental operations. Former military, their tight-knit brotherhood is now Atrox Security. These men fear nothing, they are unwavering, unafraid, and unrelenting. They are the Undaunted Men.


He doesn’t want to take the job, but he has no choice. He owes a debt to the Moretti mob, and last he checked, they don’t take no for an answer.

He takes a moment to soak in the information. A pregnant mafia princess, wanted for murder, and he's supposed to track her down.

The professed father is a childhood friend, yet he’s considered a potential enemy of the family. This could get very interesting.

What starts out as a simple task, one that could easily take him one day to execute, has turned into so much more than he bargained for.

They’re each fighting their own personal demons, and it’s more than just a chase at hand. They both have secrets, hearts are on the line, and he resolves himself to go above and beyond the call of duty for reasons he can’t understand.

The last thing he ever intends on finding is an angel.

Join Quinn and Alexis as their unique story unfolds in two full-length novels released three weeks apart. You will fall in love with Kimber, a lovable retired military working dog who becomes an integral part of the storyline. 

There is adventure, passion, and suspense in this contemporary erotic romance. Along with J.C. Cliff’s trademark steamy, hot sex scenes that will keep you turning the pages from beginning to end.

You know you have a love/hate relationship with a good cliffhanger in a book, but if you’ve read my previous books, you are no stranger to this simple fact. I - LOVE - CLIFFHANGERS. I have to live up to my name, after all.
Warning: **Mature Audiences Only** This book is intended for adults of mature age only (18+). This book contains themes that could be considered offensive.

5 Star Review #Minxes Love Books

“It’s actually pretty good. Tastes like chicken.” She shrugs her shoulders as if eating rattlesnake is an everyday occurrence. I look at her with pride, then turn to make myself a plate. Out of the corner of my eye, I see a flash of movement, and then out of nowhere, Kimber leaps up and scurries off. I turn around and watch with curiosity as she runs to a spot about five feet behind Lexi, sniffing the ground. My mouth gapes open. I can’t believe what I think I just saw happen before my eyes. “Am I seeing things?” I question in a high-pitched voice, waving my spatula around. “I know you did not just spit that bite of meat out in your hand, and then chuck it over your shoulder.” I point my spatula at her accusingly with a raised brow. “I know you did not just do that.” She has guilt written all over her face, her lips forming a thin line, and then she gets all squirmy. When she doesn’t answer me, I call her out. “You really enjoyed that, did you?” I grab another piece of meat and then lean toward her. I slowly trace the fire-roasted meat over her lips, encouraging her, “Second one tastes even better.” Her lips are tightly pressed closed as she shrinks away from me. “What's wrong, my little Yankee angel? Don’t go bashful on me now; there’s plenty to go around.” “Quiiinn,” she drawls out my name on a whine. “Yeesss?” I mimic her, the deep baritone of my voice questioning her. “All right, all right, I’m sorry,” she confesses, exasperation lining her voice. “I was just trying to impress you, and in my defense, I chewed it as long as possible. It tasted like chicken chewing gum,” she declares, making a face as she crinkles her nose. Internally, I’m bursting with laughter as she makes excuses. “And the more I chewed, the more I thought about what I was chewing, and it just wouldn’t break down in my mouth.” My shoulders start to shake, and I can’t school my features any longer. She swats at my chest, and I grab her wrist, pulling her into me as I break out with deep laughter. “Now, was the truth so hard to tell?” “Don’t I at least get credit for trying it?” She then pouts, displaying her doe eyes of innocence. “It’s only when you swallow that you get credit for being a real woman,” I tease.
I let go of her cheek and watch my index finger slowly trail a path down the length of her lithe neck. I pause when I feel her pulse; it's beating wildly through her veins. When her breath hitches, my eyes flick back to hers, and then I grow bold, my voice turning raspy, “I want to kiss you all over, and taste you from your lips to your silky sex.” I’ve lost all resolve as I lean forward and whisper over her mouth, “Would you like that, Angel?” I seal my mouth over hers, and she opens up to me, allowing me to slip my tongue inside her warmth. I groan when she runs her tongue over mine in a firm stroke of seduction. Slowly, my fingers graze down toward her breast, her overheated skin burning my fingertips. She arches her back, pushing that luscious tit into my hand. I squeeze around her fullness wishing she was naked for me. “I’ve been dying to kiss you like this all day,” I huskily whisper between passionate kisses.

What?! THE FREAKING MOTHER OF ALL CLIFFIES AHEAD!! Quinn by J.C. Cliff pulls you in from the first page and keeps your prisoner.

Quinn owes the mafia and he dreads the day he will have to fulfill his duty…and they do come calling for him. The mafia boss’s daughter has runaway and it’s up to Quinn to find her with nothing more than the barest of details for him to follow, but he has skills and he puts them to good use, and it doesn’t take him long to find her.

Alexis is on the run. People she thought she could trust, she can’t…and that isn’t even the icing on the cake. She didn’t want to meet anyone when she decided to backpack through the woods, but when she meets Quinn, there is an unmistakable attraction.

Lies and withholding information are found both sides of their fence, and an overheard phone call leads to misunderstanding which has her running again! Will Quinn be able to find her? Will they be able to open their hearts and their souls to each other? This is a must read at 4.5 stars. And yes, there is a cliffy, but you still need to one click and get this book! I need the second part like yesterday!!

Quinn is the first book in the Undaunted Men Series by J.C. Cliff and after reading the Blyss Triology; I was curious to learn what Quinn's story was! J.C. Cliff in a fashion true to only her crafted a story that intrigued the reader from the very first page and kept you on the edge of your seat until the very last cliffhanger page! I had the immense privilege of beta reading this book and to see how far the story has come only makes me love it that much more. This book was a 4.5 star read for me and I highly recommend it to others.

Quinn gets the call that he has been dreading ever since he has owed the Moretti Mob a favor. A job he does not want to take, but unfortunately has to, he makes sure that once he completes it, the Moretti's and him are square. Quinn is slightly irritated to have to hike into the woods to find a missing Mafia princess, who he assumes is more at home spending money at the mall than roughing it in the wilderness. The details he is given are vague at best but with his skill set, he should find Alexis in no time.

Alexis is thrown into a whirlwind when those she thought she could trust betrayed her in the very worst way. With other choice but to leave her family and her home in order to survive the cluster of lies her life has become, she hits the trails for a hike to save herself from a life that she as never wanted. Meeting Quinn wasn't in the equation, but the ruggedly handsome guy and his adorably lovable dog Kimber came at the perfect time. When Quinn suggests that they team up for the remainder of the hike, how can she say no?

The danger that both Quinn and Lexi face is inevitable. With Lexi running from those that want to cage her and Quinn looking to pay back a debt, what could possibly go wrong?? Two unlikely people thrown together in a unforeseeable situation are sure to develop feelings for each other. But are those feelings strong enough to withstand the lies that they continue to tell each other? You need to read this action packed story to find out.

Quinn is the first book in the Undaunted Men series and also this series is a spin off of the fantastic Blyss Trilogy. I would give this a 4.5 stars and highly recommend to others. If you read the Blyss books you know that Quinn made an appearance there and left you wanting to know more about him, well J.C. certainly delivered quite the story. There are so many pieces of this story that stole my heart especially Kimber, I will not spoil it and tell you who that is but know that you will fall in love with her. In true J.C. Cliff fashion she leaves us with quite a big shocking moment at the end of this book, it will leave you screeching WTF when she delivers quite the cliffy! But it has certainly left me wanting and begging for more!

Quinn is the sexy broody ex military man who definitely fits the bill of Undaunted to a T. He has a new mission, a mission that isn't something he would normally do but he has to pay back a favor. He has to protect a Mafia Boss's daughter from danger.... but will it turn out to be a favor or so much more? He has to keep it a secret.. and secrets turn into a betrayal.. and danger. 

Alexis is the daughter of a mafia boss and has gotten herself mixed up with a man that will not take no for an answer from her... so she has to make a big decision and with that decision it will set her off an unbeaten path- literally. But what she doesn't expect is to meet a man on this path who will literally turn her world upside down in more ways than one.. but she has secrets too, and when some get revealed will it be too much? 

Get to one clickin this bad boy cause you will not want to miss it! No worries on the cliffy, it seems we will get the next book very soon! Thanks for another great story and can't wait for the next installment!

Holy mother... ugh, a cliff from Cliff.

Quinn, former military, owes a favor to the mafia boss. The call to collect has finally come. He is tasked with finding and bringing home the mafia bosses daughter, Alexis.

Alexis is fighting her demons and feels lost, she doesn't know who to turn to for help.
