The Lover’s Game
by J.C. Reed
Genre: Mature New Adult/ Adult Contemporary Romance
Recommended for ages 18 and up.

When love is a game…

After having her heart broken, Brooke tries to rebuild her life and closes herself off from the one man she loved deeply. When she meets Grayson, a photographer, she has no idea that her new boss will offer her more than she bargained for. The pay is great, her new friends more than welcoming and everything seems to be running well…until everyone insists she find herself a new suitor during a night out.

Jett knows how to play games. He is used to getting attention from everyone except the beautiful dark haired woman who doesn’t like to be fooled with and doesn’t trust him as far as she can spit. He wants Brooke but, more than that, he wants to own her, and the only way to get her is to make her owe him…against her will.

And what Jett owns, Jett keeps forever.

Love in the Dark, by Isabel Pietri

Love in the Dark, by Isabel Pietri

Blurb:
NYPD surveillance expert, Detective Millie Angeles knows well that scintillating things can transpire under the cover of dark. Some of them happen to be quite pleasurable. Others, however, are nothing short of deadly. LOVE in the DARK lifts the cloak of darkness on one woman’s action-packed life, revealing high action and erotic encounters that are certain to enthrall and excite anyone who loves their intrigue served with plenty of sauce.
In the sordid, shimmering streets of New York City, Millie has made a name for herself working in the elite TARU unit of the New York Police Department as the go-to girl for surveillance and tracking. However, when tragedy occurs, she finds herself casting about for a new chapter. That all falls into place when she lands a job at a private company, which dispatches her to the West Coast to work for Adrian Zaragosa, a blind, and strikingly handsome owner of a winery estate in the Napa Valley. As the plot thickens and their passion sparks, Millie finds herself in the throes of both extreme danger and overpowering desire. Millie’s talents seem to be just what Adrian needs. Or is he simply manipulating a situation to have her near?
Blood-pumping and heart-racing, LOVE in the DARK will leave readers wanting more, and perhaps even begging for it. It’s Fifty Shades of Grey and the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo commingling into one irresistible read.

“A cop gets more than she bargained for when she agrees to be the director of security for a mysterious business man in this debut thriller.”-Kirkus

“Mystery and erotica meld together to build a tense narrative led by a no-nonsense female cop. Plots and subplots that feature aspects of colorful characters, mystery and sex.” -Clarion Review

AUTHOR INTERVIEW
BIO:
I am a retired Labor Union President from NYC. In retirement, I have taken up the craft of creative writing, which has been a life long passion of mine. I have one book published, “LOVE in the DARK” (view on Amazon). The second book in the trilogy, “The Black Calla Lily” is almost done. Aside from being a published author, I scuba dive, fish, golf, target shoot, drink good wine, love vodka martinis and read.

SEXY BOOKS BLOG INTERVIEW:

Q: IN FIVE WORDS PLEASE DESCRIBE YOUR WRITING STYLE:
A: My writing style is conversational.

Q: TOP THREE FAVORITE TITLES (BOOKS OR MOVIES):
A: Gone with the Wind, Casa Blanca, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Q: DO YOUR LEADING CHARACTERS COME FROM ANY PLACE IN PARTICULAR?
A: You could say they are a composite of myself, my husband and people I know, past and present.

Q: WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR DOWN TIME?
A: I read, write, play with my dog and two cats, play golf, swim, scuba, watch movies, drink good wine and observe people.

Q: TOP FIVE SNACKS WHILE WRITING:
A: Wine (red or white, but mostly red, Malbecs from Argentina).

Q: WHAT’S YOUR WRITING PROCESS?
A: I daydream constantly re-playing a drama over and over again, tweaking here and there until I like the drama in my head. Then and only then do I sit to write. Once the actual writing starts, I find the story writes itself.

Q: TALK TO US ABOUT YOUR BOOK, WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OR CHARACTER?
A: I love all the characters in LOVE in the DARK. Mr. Z is easy to love, but Millie is my favorite. Her character is complex. She is a rough and tumble sort of gal while at the same time loves playing the role of submissive to Mr. Z. Millie’s sense of justice, her loyalty, and courage culminate at the end making it my favorite part of the book.

Q: WHAT IS THE CRAZIEST THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
A: Umm….I’d rather not say.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF BEING A WRITER?
A: I like writing for the sake of writing. To be able to use language to evoke emotions and thoughts and draw a person into an imaginary world where they can let go of reality for a while is a good feeling. Then there is self-discovery. I never thought I had the language to write explicit sex scenes. Imagine my surprise! Entertainment is what it is all about.

Review of Ugly Love, by Colleen Hoover

IMG_9707.PNG
Review of Ugly Love, by Colleen Hoover

Synopsis:
When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.
Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.
They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.
Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

BOOK NERDS GIVES THIS 5 STARS!!!
Colleen Hoover has done it, again! What an amazing author. The amount of gut wrenching tears spilled while reading this book is indescribable. I found myself weeping, sobbing. In this book you’ll find a severely damaged man, and a woman desperate to find a way to help him accept loving her. With such a sordid past though, he can’t bring himself to allow love back into his life. He feels he would be setting himself up to have the potential to relive the type of pain he’s been dealing with every day for the past 6 years… Ever since that life altering day. He breaks her. Completely. Still, he’s all she can see. The question is.. Will he break her beyond repair? And will he open his eyes before it’s too late, and she’s gone forever?
GET THIS BOOK so you can find out for yourself. Colleen Hoover, ladies and gentlemen…. BRAVO.
