We’re celebrating the release of STROKED by Meghan Quinn! 

STROKED by Meghan Quinn
Scheduled to release: July 20, 2016
NA Romantic Comedy

BLURB:

Reese King: Olympic medalist, underwear model, Greek god.

His body is chiseled from rock, sculpted by the weight room, and refined by water.

On a daily basis his skin is completely bare for everyone to see, tan and defined, only covered up by a minuscule piece of spandex. There is no denying his sex appeal.

I hate to admit it, but I’m head over heels infatuated with him.

There is one HUGE problem though. His achingly gorgeous abs, inked up arm, and cocky swagger belong to my boss, the high-profile, reality star bitch from hell and certified heinous human being, Bellini Chambers.

What I think is going to be an easy job assisting a glorified wench turns into a cluster f*ck of epic proportions.

About the Author:
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!

MY THOUGHTS:

 

I love love love all books that Ms. London writes and I have not read anything written by Ms. Emory and Ms. Haughton. The Last Plus One was great read from these three, it was such a sweet fun read that had me engaged from the very beginning. Even though these were three different story by three different authors, they flowed nicely together making me want to read each one of them.

I thought there was great character development and that I one of the things I really look for while reading. Each of the character really grew and opened their hearts up in each of the stories.

That is until he stops in the small town of Truman Valley, Missouri, where he meets a woman who will change everything he’s ever known.

A night that would tear the Watson family apart, never to be put back together again. 
A night that would send Xander away to prison for life.

“Shit, I’ve got a good feeling about him too… and it’s in my panties.” She laughs and motions toward her crotch. “If I had been working and saw him do that to Benji’s fat ass, I would’ve let him fuck me right on top of the bar…and I would’ve let everyone watch.”
“Brandi!”
“I’m serious. Fuck it!”
“You’re ridiculous.”
“Paige, don’t tell me you didn’t notice that anaconda stuffed into his jeans?”
What?! What the fuck are you talking about? Anaconda? I wasn’t looking at his damn jeans.” I laugh, finding it hard to not to love this girl who has become like a sister to me. She’s the craziest bitch I know, but she’s got my back no matter what. She’s had it since day one.
“Why wouldn’t you look at his jeans? That’s where his dick is!”

Condor earned his
reputation by being Delta Star’s ultimate secret agent. He’s untouchable,
unstoppable, and he always nails his targets. But no matter how many times he’s
saved the world, he’s a ghost who will never take credit. He works best alone,
and to continue to protect his country, he’ll stay alone.

New Delta Star field agent Bridget Jamison is obsessed with capturing Simon
Perez, the elusive terrorist responsible for her ex-fiancé’s death. When the
Delta Star director hands the case over to Condor, a mesmerizing ghost agent
who has the power to make her weak in the knees with one intense look, Bridget
agrees to be Condor’s partner so that she’s not dropped from the case and her
chance for justice.

Now they’re on a mission to infiltrate a dangerous criminal organization and
capture Perez. It’s up to Condor to keep this beautiful, determined agent out
of harm’s way, and to keep their explosive passion contained long enough not to
risk their cover…and their lives.

 

Book Review:

I love to get a book and get more out of it than you originally expect. Bound to Serve was a great, engaging read that enjoyed. There was a lot more than just a heart warming romance with some sexy moments, there was action and dangerous missions that kept me on the edge of my set while reading. Both characters were great and I really enjoyed getting know them and reading about them.

I can not wait to see what Ms Castle has for us next!

About Julie Castle
I’m author Julie Castle. I’m a natural born romantic with a
modicum of artistic talent that I inherited from my mom and a love for telling
tall tales that I got from my dad. I guess that set me up for being a starving
artist, the biggest fibber in the world, or a romance author. I’m so glad that
I chose the latter.
I’ve always had a love affair with the written word. As a child
growing up in a small town I loved visiting the local library, a converted
gilded age mansion, and getting lost between the pages of a book. The drafty
old mansion could be a spooky place but I still loved it. I enjoyed poking into
behind the scenes areas I wasn’t supposed to venture into. I’m still the same
way which is why I love writing romance with an edge, paranormal, suspenseful,
super sexy, or just laugh your pants off funny I hope you’ll find it in my
books.

EXCERPT:

Condor walked back into the body of the Delta Star unmarked jet after conferring with the flight crew in the pilot’s cabin. The agency’s private jet bore no government markings and had filed a false flight plan. The flight to the private island would be a lengthy one and would give him a chance to work with Bridget. Bridget stood by the counter, his backpack open and the Perez file unfolded in her hands. He smiled. She’d fallen right into his trap. Denying her access to the file had been a small test, one she’d failed miserably. He knew she was going to be trouble, and this confirmed it. Given her training, it wasn’t likely that she’d blow their cover after learning what it contained, but it was imperative that she learn to obey him. The instant she sensed his presence, she looked up at him and blushed like a guilty kid caught with her hand in the cookie jar. An instant later, her chin rose defiantly and her emerald eyes narrowed. The look charmed the hell out of him, but it was her unapologetic smile that made his heart skip a beat, while he hardened, throbbing to life. Damn, who was the master here? It was going to be a long night. “So the creep gets his rocks off at a private island compound called the Retreat,” she said softly, then added in a scornful tone, “I’m not a bit surprised.” Her instincts as an agent were sharp, he had to give her that, but he was keeping her in the dark for a reason. Unused to this kind of operation, she might say or do the wrong thing and risk her pretty neck. Given her personal connection to the case, and her need to avenge James Clayton, she wasn’t thinking with her head. She’d want to take over. Hell, she’d already threatened to take over, and it couldn’t be allowed. Not on Condor’s watch.

Bridget clutched the file and tried to gauge Condor’s reaction. She looked at his firm, forbidding expression, and knew without a doubt that she had crossed an invisible line in the sand. He’d ordered her not to peek, and she defied him. Now she had to pay the penalty. Damn the man. She wouldn’t have to resort to subterfuge like this if he’d share the info like a normal agent, but the troubled look in his eye told her to save her breath. He rolled up his sleeves. “Kick off your shoes, take off your jacket and piece, and come here.” He pushed down a jump seat, sat down, and patted his hard lap. She gulped, appalled, and at the same time fascinated as he prepared to punish her. He couldn’t mean to actually take her over his knee like she was a disobedient child. The flight crew might overhear. A look at his amused expression told her that he meant to do just that. “No.” He was a total hunk in a rough-around-the- edges kind of way. Still dressed in his biker leathers, he looked totally indecent and totally devastating. “You did agree to be trained. And I told you it would start immediately.” He arched a brow and said softly, “Unless you want out. Just say the word, and I’ll turn the plane around.”

“No,” she protested. Still, she stood frozen with shock, her pulse racing, her core tightening. If he’d grabbed her and forced her to comply, it would have been so much easier, but that wasn’t his game. He wanted her to come to him, to submit, and damn—part of her wanted to obey, to find out what it was like to let someone else be in control and take care of her.

Daddy duty
might be his toughest mission yet…
There are certain words that have always
described Cam Brantley: Town bad boy. Soldier. Protector. But never, ever dad.
Until he returns home from his latest military tour to discover the girl he had
one smoking-hot night with is now mom to the adorable two-year-old Zoey. Who
has his eyes.

Plenty of words could describe Emma Walker
these days. Mom, dutiful granddaughter, budding designer, the town’s golden
child. But when her longtime crush Cam Brantley comes back to town, she knows
the perfect word to describe herself: screwed.

Cam and Emma are both shocked to discover he
truly wants Zoey in his life. But Cam’s not sure he’s ready to be a dad, and
Emma can’t gamble her daughter on maybes. As the long-simmering heat between
Cam and Emma reaches a boiling point, he’ll have to work past his demons in
order to be the man both girls need.

 

 Book Review:

Like I always say, Entangled Bliss books are my favorite and always like books by Cindi Madsen, these two together make a great book.

Ms. Madsen takes us back to Hope Springs where we get to meet Cam and Emma. They had one night together 2 years ago, after their night Cam leaves and Emma finds herself pregnant. The only thing is, she doesn’t tell Cam she is, until Emma comes face to face with Cam again.

This was a very cute story, while reading you really feel like you’re in the same small town as they are. The town completely reminded me of Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls. Reading about a small town is always fun because the reader gets to know each of the characters, hoping they will get their own books sometime soon.

The Bad Boy’s Baby was definitely a fun and sweet read. I would recommend this one for readers who like those types of books.

Excerpt from The Bad
Boy’s Baby

 

Cam
rounded a huge sagebrush, and calm and collected flew right out the window as
she took him in. There was something about the mountain background that brought
out his rugged features even more, from the strong square jaw to the scruff
covering it to just…him. She’d never thought she’d be so turned on by muddy
pant legs and a baseball cap that looked like it’d been to hell and back.
And
before their bet got pulled into it and things became more awesome or super
awkward, she decided to at least complete a semibold move. She took a large
step forward, ran her palm down the side of his face, and planted a kiss on his
lips.
A
grin spread across the rugged features she’d been admiring, and he wrapped one
arm around her waist. “Just so you know, you touch the beard, I touch your
butt.”
Flashing
him a saucy smile, she reached up and ran her hand down it again, dragging out
the gesture before brushing her fingertips across his jaw.
He
kept his promise, one hand lowering to the curve of her butt. Using the solid
grip, he hauled her against him and kissed her again. Then he whispered, “If
this is your attempt at getting out of stripping for me, it’s a good try and
all, but a bet’s a bet.”
