Review Tour: Another One by Aleatha Romig

   
Get ready to laugh out loud, swoon, and fall in love with this new, fun, and sexy stand-alone novel from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig. Demonstrating her versatility in writing, Aleatha revisits her lighter side that you loved in PLUS ONE. 

A complete stand-alone, ANOTHER ONE is the next big summer hit. 

*Shana*

Trevor Willis is sexy, sweet, and oh so fun. He’s also my best friend’s brother-in-law. That should mean he’s off-limits or that I should be off-limits to him. 

Someone probably should have told us that before my best friend married his brother, before the morning of the wedding when we woke in each other’s arms, before I woke with gaping holes in my memory.

They didn’t.

We did. 

The hilarious truth behind our crazy, secret adventure secured this handsome, off-limits man in my heart. But alas, life goes on. After our one secret night, we went back to our lives—our hardworking, solitary lives.

And then it happened. 

My phone began to buzz. Each night with thousands of miles between us, we laughed, talked, and shared. And then the phone stopped ringing. 

Before it did, I knew one thing...

Our secret one had bloomed and blossomed, and now that our circumstances have changed, I want another one!

*Trevor*

Shana Price is that one woman. You know, the one who suddenly makes the world more than a place to work, but also a place to live. Usually shy and awkward, in her presence I want to be more—I am more. I don’t even have to try. 

She’s my one. I knew it the moment I first met her. What followed simply confirmed it.

The problem is the little hassle of the thousands of miles between us. 

I tried to make it work, but each phone call made it harder. (Yes, that is a pun.) I couldn’t take it anymore—and she became the one who got away. 

Now, everything has changed. 

Shana is back in the United States—all I have to do is make her see that her job isn’t the only reason to stay. 

That shouldn’t be a problem, right?

From a secret one to another one!

Try Aleatha’s lighter side for a guaranteed smile—the perfect getaway.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

Aleatha's "Lighter Ones" are all stand-alone lighter romances guaranteed to make you smile, possibly shed a tear, and definitely enjoy the ride! They may be read in any order.

Trevor~

Sweet and tangy.

Shana Price tastes like sugar with a twist of lemon.

My mind tells me to go slow, reminding me that I don’t have any right to this beautiful woman. My mind is saying to stop, yet her soft moan is all I hear.

My body has its own GPS with the destination close. Listening to my mind is out of the question.

Her petite body shivers as I tease her sweet lips. They willingly part as my tongue delves inside, wrestling with hers.

Not giving up its fight, my thoughts remind me how forward this behavior is and how it isn’t like me. Trevor Willis is not a man who chases a woman down, pins her against the wall, and kisses her until neither of us can breathe or cares.

It’s not me.

But, it should be.

I like it.

I won’t blame the alcohol. I’ll blame my need to know it’s really Shana and to claim her for my own. I didn’t do it last time, and I’ve regretted it every day since.

When her hands come to my chest, I seize them, lifting them above her head and pinning them to the wall. Shana doesn’t fight; instead, her hips move against mine and our kiss grows more passionate. In the dark, crowded hallway, with my body pressed against hers, I swallow the soft moans coming from her throat.

At that moment, I want to be anywhere but a crowded bar in the middle of Manhattan. I no longer care about Eric’s bachelor party or my friends. I don’t even care about Kimbra back out in the bar. All I want is to whisk Shana away and do what we didn’t do before, what her body and mine are ready and aching to do.
Well, the light side has struck again! I have said in other reviews that I love the light side of this author and I adore the dark side of her as well. She has done it again with this sexy romantic comedy! I would give this story 4 stars and highly recommend to others. This is the second book in her lighter series, and it can be read as a stand-alone, but if your anything like me you will want to read the first one Plus One because those characters will play a role in this story as well.

Shana and Trevor had a chance meeting at a wedding, they instantly connected, but there was one problem they live oceans apart, they tried to keep in touch by as time passes so do priorities and both had jobs that were very demanding so communication was cut off... but when Shana gets a temporary job in the same city as Trevor what will happen? They both feel each other is off limits.... and it could be just temporary once again.. but will it stop them this time?

Get to one clicking to see what happens!
I am loving this series (Lighter Ones). The first book brought us Kimber and Duncan and this one brings us Shana (Kimber's bff) and Trevor (Duncan's brother).

Shana and Trevor first met at Kimber and Duncan's wedding a few years ago. But Shana never forgot about him. So when Shana gets the chance to work at the SAK's location in New York City, she and her friend Stephen jump at the chance to leave London.

Chance encounters draw Shana and Trevor together. Shana is the loud endearing type to Trevor's strong and shy type but together they shine.

So what happens? You will definitely need to one click to find out.

Review/Excerpt Tour: One Baby Daddy by Meghan Quinn

   
"What are you doing now that your team is out of the running for the Stanley Cup?" Forget. I need to forget. I need an escape. Only one person isn't falling for my reputation as the NHL's Golden Boy; she captured my attention the minute she called me out for snooping through my best friend's house. She didn't want to hear my reason--she only wanted to playfully give me a hard time. Adalyn is bold, sassy--and the perfect escape. She's everywhere. In town and in my dreams, and suddenly I need to spend every waking moment with her. And I do, making this summer the best off-season I've ever had. But in the midst of getting lost in Adalyn, what I don't expect is to get her pregnant. And what I definitely don't expect is having to fight for her affection. 
       

“Would you mind zipping up the back of my dress?” She walks toward me, her flowery scent floating in my direction, spiking my yearning into overdrive.

“Uh, yeah . . . sure.”

She turns around, and looks over her shoulder. The back of her dress is completely open, the zipper undone to just above the curve of her beautifully round ass.

Shit, all that smooth, tan skin, covered by nothing but the velvety fabric of the dress. Is she wearing underwear? She’s not wearing a bra and I see no panty line.

Clearing my throat, I ask, “Are you wearing underwear, Adalyn?”

From over her shoulder, she smiles shyly. “Yes, it’s small though.”

Of course it is. Why wouldn’t it be?

Not being able to stop myself, I take a second to float my fingertips up her spine. From the initial touch, her back arches and a small gasp releases from her lips, but before I can think about stopping, she melts into my touch. Stepping closer, I place my hand on the back of her hip, my thumb pressing into her ass while the other hand explores the bare expanse of her back. Her head falls to my shoulder. Her lips part, and when I snake to the front of her dress, her breath hitches.

Eyes closed, I take in ragged breaths, my fingers inching closer and closer to her front, my cock painfully hard.

It’s been so goddamn long—and being with Adalyn has only spurred on my need—but I want to make sure we’re in a good place before we commit to anything. I want to make sure she’s ready emotionally because the minute I bury myself deep inside her, I know there will be no turning back. She will be mine forever.

But maybe for now, I can just have a little touch . . .

My cock pressed against her butt, she expertly grinds her backside into me, her hands moving to my neck, pulling my head down to hers. I kiss the side of her neck, using the hand that’s gripping her hips to guide her with her grinding in just the right place.

Fuck, that feels good.

I grunt, the sound vibrating over her sleek neck. My hand on her stomach, she arches wanting more of my touch, silently asking me to move north.

And I fucking comply. Inch by slow inch, I guide my hand to just below her breasts. When I halt my pursuit, a displeased groan escapes her.

“Hayden, please.”

I squeeze my eyes shut, trying to find the willpower. Her fingernails dig into my scalp, spurring me on as she turns her head and finds my lips.

She kisses me.

Hot.

Wet.

Needy.

Her lips gliding across mine, her tongue diving into my mouth, her moans are vocal and sexy. Her delicious ass, pressing, grinding, undulating against my rock-hard cock makes me want to do so much more, makes me want to taste so much more.

Moving my hand higher, my fingertips graze the bottom of her breast. Soft. Round. Smooth. I caress her right below her nipple, never touching, just teasing . . . tempting. 
I loved this story so much. I loved that Meghan connected this book with the Back in the Game (Caulder) and Twisted Twosome (Binghamtom #3) (Racer). But oh did she make my heart hurt.

Hayden's hockey season has come to a close. He needs a break. He heads back to where he grew up - Binghamtom. He's just looking for some time alone and is not anticipating meeting someone like Adalyn (Racer's friend). But when he does there is an immediate attraction/connection.

Adalyn is friends with Racer and Emma. She's sassy and bold and Hayden is consumed with the need to know her. But Hayden moves so slowly, savoring every interaction and moment they have together. But when their walls finally start to crumble they incinerate, even the rubble.

But then it seems the odds are stacked against them. The miscommunication, feelings of longing and even a friend name Logan get in the way. And listen, I very much wanted to throat punch Logan.

You definitely need to one click this. You will ride the emotional roller coaster for sure.
I was highly anticipating this release! I am so happy with the outcome! I would give this story a 4.5 stars and highly recommend to others. The Jock aka Hayden finally got to tell his story, and boy oh boy are you in for a treat. I think out of all the characters in this story he intrigued me the most to see what was laying underneath his angst with dating. I will say it was a rocky path for sure but you will need to read to find out how it all gets smoothed out. I had some moments reading this story that made me want to throat punch Adalyn- yes I know she was pregnant but damn the woman really made me wanna scream and shake her and say wake up and see what is in front of you!

Hayden- we got a little of his story in the first in Three Blind Dates, but it doesn't shine light on him as much as this story did. Adalyn was also brought into the world of Meghan Quinn in another story series of hers and I couldn't wait to see what happened with her either. When you read books and realized how they all get connected even when they are different series is so awesome because I feel it gives you more insight on the characters you feel in love with in the beginning.

One click this story to see how all unfolds. I don't need to give more details about this story because if you read the others books you can already anticipate about whats may happen next and I don't want to spoil.. just go get it asap!
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Cover Reveal and Giveaway: The Right Stud by Ilsa Madd-Mills and Tia Louise




Title: The Right Stud
Authors: Ilsa Madden-Mills & Tia Louise
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: Shanoff Formats
Photo: Wander Aguiar
Release Date: June 4, 2018

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise are back with an all-new romantic comedy filled with Southern sass and steamy scenes that will have you laughing out loud and fanning yourself. Pour the sweet tea and get ready…

“The best way to get over your sh**ty ex-fiancĂ© is to get under a shiny new stud…”

As soon as Mr. Tall, Blond, and Handsome walks into that bar, I know he’s the hook-up I need to get over stupid Cheater Kyle.

A few stolen kisses in a dark hallway, and I’m pretty sure we’re headed for a home run—until he disappears without a trace.

Whatever. Men are all snakes in the grass, and I don’t need a new one anyway.

I resolve to forget about his perfect lips (and chest of steel) and instead focus on turning my Granny’s old beach house into a profitable B&B.

What I don’t expect is for him to show up the next day in my kitchen!

You see, my sexy mystery man is none other than Jax Roland, the drop-dead gorgeous home improvement star of The Right Stud, and he’s got an offer I can’t refuse.

With a suitcase in one hand and a hammer in the other, he wants to move in and renovate my old house while he films his new show.

But my roommate has secrets, and they threaten to rip our blossoming friendship—and possible love—apart.

When push comes to shove, is Jax really The Right Stud or is he just another nail in the coffin of love?

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise are not a secret duo, but simply themselves.

Great friends, former English teachers, and southern gals in real life, they’ve teamed up to bring you laugh-out-loud naughty romances with strong leading ladies and sexy alpha males who know how to please their women—and who sometimes you just want to slap.
