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!

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.

Book Review: Hustler by Meghan Quinn and Jessica Prince

Published May 9, 2016 by adventuresinbooklandblog



We’re celebrating the release of HUSTLER by Meghan Quinn and Jessica Prince! 

 

HUSTLER by Meghan Quinn & Jessica Prince
Scheduled to release: May 9, 2016
NA Romantic Comedy
Cover designer: Meghan Quinn

Goodreads

Amazon: http://amzn.to/21zWvyG

BLURB:

I make my living as a hustler, and I’m great at it.

I don’t have a single tell and use that to my advantage to manipulate any situation.

I’ve always known what a person is about to do before they’ve even decided.

That is, until I met Nell.

I can’t get a read on her, and what’s worse, she doesn’t want anything to do with me.

Which only makes me want her more.

Now I’m in for the hardest hustle of my life.

Somehow I have to convince Nell that she belongs with me.

Good thing I’m always up for a challenge.

 

Book Review:

I enjoyed this book way more than I thought I would. At first, I didn’t think I would like the book, it moved a little slow for me and I was NOT a fan of Gavin. Gavin was way too into himself for his own good.  Through the course of the book, I felt a little more for him, as he opened himself up to Nell, but I took almost 70% into the book to see it. I did however enjoy Nell’s character, she was sweet and just trying to achieve her dream. The only thing is Vegas is a “who you know” type of world.

There were so many times where I was laughing during this book, of course this is a Meghan Quinn book and she knows how to add humor to her books. Then there were times I was screaming at my kindle! If you enjoy reading funny book with characters that will make you feel emotions, then is the one for you!

ONCE UPON A DARE:
The first night was a dare. The second night was trouble…

Advertising guru Olivia Masterson is all work and no play. But on the eve of earning her dream promotion, her best friend dares her to drop her ice queen façade for one night and seduce a sexy stranger. Olivia’s worked her ass off to get where she is-why the hell not?

Cole Bennett never thought he’d run into his feisty one-night stand at the office, furious that he stole her promotion. No matter how hard she tries to ice him out, they can’t seem to keep their hands to themselves…or their clothes on.

Olivia’s talented-maybe even more than Cole-so when his dropped hints to the boss net her a promotion of her own, he’s ready to celebrate…until she accuses him of fueling office rumors that she slept her way to the top. She wants to earn her own way? Fine. So what the hell does a guy have to do to permanently melt an ice queen?

ONCE UPON A POWER PLAY:

He’ll do whatever it takes to get her against the boards…

Sidelined by a potentially career-ending injury, the only thing hockey player Ryan Douglas should be thinking about is recovery. But after sharing a near death experience and a night of passion with a spunky brunette, the only thing on his mind is five and a half feet of sexy sarcasm. And he’ll do whatever it takes to get her back in his bed–even if it means playing dirty.

Chloe Jacobs is done with fairytales. And men. She’s kissed her share of frogs and what’s it gotten her? Dumped by text–again. Determined to eighty-six illusions of romance and prove she’s more than just a good-time girl, the last thing she needs is a pushy, arrogant hockey player testing her resolve. Especially one who’s sinfully good with his hands and thinks date-by-blackmail is a perfectly acceptable social convention.

Ryan wants to play games? Fine by her, but this is one faceoff he’s going to lose.

Book Review: Keeper of the Mist by Rachel Neumeier

The Keeper of the Mist

by Rachel Neumeier

Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers

Release Date: March 8th 2016

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Fiction

Rate: INSERT YOUR RATE HERE

Synopsis:
A lush new fantasy about finding the will to lead against all odds, perfect for fans of Shadow and Bone.
Keri has been struggling to run her family bakery since her mother passed away. Now the father she barely knew—the Lord of Nimmira—has died, and ancient magic has decreed that she will take his place as the new Lady. The position has never been so dangerous: the mists that hide Nimmira from its vicious, land-hungry neighbors have failed, and Keri’s people are visible to strangers for the first time since the mists were put in place generations ago. At the same time, three half-brothers will their own eyes on the crown make life within the House just as dangerous as the world outside.
But Keri has three people to guide her: her mysterious Timekeeper, clever Bookkeeper, and steadfast Doorkeeper. Together they must find a way to repair the boundary before her neighbors realize just how vulnerable Nimmira is.
With a spunky main character, lyrical storytelling, and hidden romance, The Keeper of the Mist is an engrossing story that is full of adventure. 

Keeper of the Mist was a book that I was really looking forward to read, I think the cover is just amazing! Once I started to read, it took me a little while to get into the story, something about it didn’t grab my attention. That might have to do with the fact that I didn’t feel a connection to the main characters. The story did pick up for me after a while, but there was never the, “I cant put this down, I have to finish it!” moment.I do think Ms. Neumeier is a great writer and just because I had a little bit of problem connection with these characters doesn’t mean I wont pick up another book by her again.

Book Review: The Randy Romance by Meghan Quinn

BLURB:

It finally happened, I lost my virginity. Cue applause and cheers.

For a while life was all rainbows and kittens prancing in a sky full of cotton candy clouds…that was until the demands of the real world set in.

My best friend is getting married and she asked me to be her maid of honor. She’s not worried about flowers, or the dress, or the food at the venue. No, she’s worried about the bachelorette party, what kind of penis crown she will wear, and the nipple size of the stripper who will be attending.

I’m in way over my head trying to balance life with a boyfriend, planning a penis party, and writing my romance novel. Something is bound to give.

This is my life after my happily ever after…

Review:

Just like The Virgin Romance Novelist, The Randy Romance was hilarious and had me laughing from the very first page!

In this story we find Rosie right where she left off in her new place with her new boyfriend and her new randy self. Now that she has lost her v-card all she wants is Henry and he’s happy to comply. Although, she tends to want to reenact her favorite scenes in her book, and he doesn’t seem a fan of that. I loved seeing all the old characters in this book too. Yes, even our favorite little feline is in this one.

Although, Henry and Rosie seem to have gotten their little Happily Ever After, an old flame of Henry’s comes into the picture and may cause some ripples in this happy life.

 

If you are looking for a funny easy read, than this is the one for you!

Her bosom heaved at an alarming rate as his rough hand found its way down to her soft, yet wiry briar patch…

Can you say briar patch in a romance novel? What about meat sword? That’s what it is…a meat sword, right, all meaty and sword like, slaying through the inner dungeons of a woman’s dark desires. What about breasts? Do bosoms really heave?

God, I have no idea what happens when private parts touch.

I’m a virgin trying to write a romance novel and can’t seem to write past a sex scene thanks to my lack of experience.

My two best friends encourage me to drop the pen for a while and gain some real life practice through multiple dating facets such as blind dates, online profiles, and random hookups.

But losing my virginity is proving to be tougher than expected…
