button excerpt

“Dance with me, Mackenzie,” he said, holding my hand in his, sensually placing the other just below my hip bone.
“What are you−”
“Shhh…,” he admonished, expertly leading me in our dance, the band playing Cole Porter’s Every Time We Say Goodbye. “Just enjoy it and don’t think.”
I simply nodded, turning my head to scan the restaurant.
“Mackenzie, eyes on me. I need to know you’re with me.”
I snapped my eyes back to his, my mouth slightly agape as my heart pounded in my chest. He was warm and spellbinding. The way he held me in his arms comforted me and made me feel as if they were made to hold me.
“Are you with me?” he asked, raising his eyebrows.
“Yes,” I said, my voice soft.
He leaned toward me and the bit of stubble on his chin brushed my skin. “Yes what?” he whispered.
“I’m with you.”
The corners of his lips turned up slightly and there was a spark about him that wasn’t present yesterday. “I like the sound of that, Miss Delano.”
He pulled me closer and I tilted my head to peer into his striking eyes, needing the connection I felt at that moment. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced, all because of a well-placed hand, a sinfully sexy voice, eyes that made me want to melt, and arms that felt like home.
“Who would have thought that the Mackenzie whose lips I couldn’t stop seeing in my dreams last night would turn out to be Mackenzie Delano, proprietor of South Padre’s hottest new spot?”
“How did−”
“Shhh,” he said once more. “You think too much. Just enjoy the moment because it’s over once the band plays the final note to this melody.”
I snapped my mouth shut, a strange awareness of loss washing over me at the prospect of this complete stranger walking away from me once the song came to an end, wondering if I would ever see him again.
“You’re a lovely dancer, Miss Delano,” he commented.
“Thank you,” I answered, unsure of whether to say anything further. He seemed to be in complete control of the dance, of his words…and of mine. And, for the first time, I was okay with someone else calling the shots.
“You have a dancer’s body. I’m confident you’ve bewitched quite a few men with the way you can seamlessly navigate the dance floor.” He leaned toward me and whispered, “I must confess… You’ve bewitched me.”
His voice was sweet as it crooned in my ear, and I was left a silent, blubbering mute, the sincerity in his declaration sparking a renewed sense of longing I had ignored for years. My breathing grew ragged, and I was unable to formulate any response. I simply lost myself in the moment of our dance, wanting his sensual words to ring in the recesses of my mind for all eternity. I wished I could have recorded his voice murmuring those endearing words to me so I could replay them over and over again when I needed to feel something I didn’t think I would ever feel again.
He molded my frame to his, our bodies swaying to the classic tune, and began to sing along with the band. I imagined he was singing to me, and me alone. His voice was deep and guttural, but sweet as he leaned toward my neck and crooned the last verse into my ear. I closed my eyes, losing myself in his warmth, his voice, his everything.
All too soon, the final note rang out, silence encompassing the room, but we continued to sway to the music in our heads, our rhythm perfectly in tune to each other. A loud drum kick echoed, startling me, and I opened my eyes, almost expecting it all to be a dream. But it wasn’t, and I was met with my mysterious stranger’s strong face. Time stood still as we simply stared at each other, neither one of us moving. I licked my dry lips, nerves causing my breathing to grow more intense and labored.
He grabbed my hand and brought it to his soft lips, placing a kiss on it. The contact caused a rush of adrenaline to run through me. Before I could ask his name, he was gone, leaving me stunned and alone once more.

Vicky’s Thoughts

What can I say… BUT OMG! The anticipation I had for this one definitely paid off! I have loved all of T.k. Leigh’s books so far, but I do believe this is her BEST one yet! Tyler Burnham.. We only got to see pieces of him in her Beautiful Mess series and this book gives you a deeper feel of the younger Burnham. While his older brother Alex had stolen a piece of my heart, Tyler dug his way in and ALMOST pushed Alex out.. Almost.. The fire that ignites between Mackenzie and Tyler is mesmerizing to say the least. I feel she is the Yin to his Yang and the relationship that unfolds between them will leave you breathless. Tyler is definitely BBF material, strong yet gentle, just remember I licked him first :D. The secondary characters bring some laughter and tears and help propel the story in different directions, and she will keep you guessing. Get ready for the emotions to roll off of you. There is a bit of a cliffie at the end, which being a two book duet I figured there would be. All that being said I could not put it down and cannot wait to see how the story plays out in the continuation Slaying the Dragon.

button About the author

T.K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is the USA Today Best Selling author of the Beautiful Mess series. Originally from New England, she now resides in sunny Southern California with her husband, dog and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband). She always had a knack for writing, but mostly in the legal field. It wasn’t until recently that she decided to try her hand at creative writing and is now addicted to creating different characters and new and unique story lines in the Contemporary Romantic Suspense genre.

When she’s not planted in front of her computer, writing away, she can be found running and training for her next marathon (of which she has run over fifteen fulls and far too many halfs to recall). Unlike Olivia, the main character in her Beautiful Mess series, she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.

To Love Again (Learning to Live Again 2) by Dori Lavelle
Genre: Contemporary Romance Series
Published: Jan 21st 2015
 
Shaun Brannon is broken to the core. But even though Kelsey’s heart is cracking as she helps him carry the weight of his past, she can’t walk away from her promise to be there for him, and she can’t ignore her deepening feelings. So she tries to accept the little he’s offering, even though she wants it all. But after months of wrestling with her emotions, she decides she must risk losing him by asking for more than he’s prepared to give her.
Shaun won’t admit it, but he aches for more than Kelsey’s warm body in his bed. The problem is, something stands between them. The whole truth about what happened eight years ago. When Kelsey demands to have all of him or she’ll walk away, he knows the time has come to tell her the truth. But the fear of reliving the past is just as paralyzing as the thought of losing her.
** Due to sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. **

Vicky’s 5 ☆ Review
Oh man this one was a doozy of a roller coaster ride. There are different twists and turns and I could not put it down! In this one we get a glimpse of Shaun’s past with Carmen. There is such a love between them, you can see why he is tortured with the thought of loving again. Kelsey has some big changes happen for her, and when things go awry it seems all is lost. Will they be able to find what they are both looking for? Dori definitely has a way of drawing you in and only giving enough information as you need it to keep you guessing. I loved this installment and cannot wait to see what happens in the next book as Shaun returns to his hometown to face his demons. I wonder what that one had in store for us!!

Eight years ago, Shaun Brannon stopped believing in love, or marriage. His only belief now is in lust.

Is he brave enough to show her his deepest scars?

#HATER by Cambria Hebert Blog Tour

Title: #Hater
Series: The Hashtag Series #2
Author: Cambria Hebert
Genre: NA Contemp/College Romance
Release Date: January 12, 2015
It started with unspoken animosity. The bitter bite of jealousy. And now its full blown hate.
It was during my first football game that I first felt the first chill of hate. I looked it right in the eyes and felt its sticky tentacles reach out for me. I’d never experienced something so cold and empty before.
The effect of that look lingered, like an unspoken promise, long after it was gone.
Becoming a couple – becoming the other half of a campus celebrity wasn’t easy. I let down walls guarding my heart and he looked past my glasses and accident prone tendencies. Romeo and I are an unlikely match, a #nerd and a jock. But we made it.
And we’re happy.
Zach doesn’t want us to be happy. He wants Romeo to pay for getting him kicked out of Omega and for the night he spent in jail. He’s going to use anything and everything he can to get his revenge. Including me.
As the weather on campus grows cold and the days become dark, revenge becomes the center of someone’s life and the happiness Romeo and I worked so hard for is threatened.
I can’t help but worry that our love is going to be overshadowed by hate.

“It’s not your job to protect me, Romeo.”
“You’re wrong.” I said, my voice leaving no room for argument. “It is and I will.”
“You’re my boyfriend. Not my bodyguard.” Her words were annoyed and I felt something behind them. But before I could question her she kept going. “He was just being a jerk. I tried to walk away and he stopped me. If I hadn’t fought against him I probably wouldn’t have a bruise at all.”
I felt my eyes narrow as I spoke dangerously low. “Are you saying it’s your fault Zach treated you this way?”
Letting her take any responsibility for this was something I would not allow.
She sighed. “I’m saying your being a drama queen.”
I laughed and raised my eyebrow. “Do I look like a woman to you?”
A fine pink blush spread across her cheekbones. “No.”
I took her face in my hands and tilted it up so I could stare into her eyes. “Listen to me. My reacting to someone putting their hands on you is not me being dramatic, it’s me loving you.”
“Oh, Romeo,” she sighed my name and my cock hardened.
I pulled her into my chest and wrapped my arms around her. “Being an asshole is just part of my charm, baby.” I said matter of fact, unable to keep the smile out of my voice. “This is just me loving you.”
“You love real good,” she mumbled against my chest, pushing a little closer.
I palmed the back of her head, holding her tight. It scared me how much I loved her sometimes. Just like the anger I’d felt just moments ago scared me. It was raw and intense. It almost bordered on hate.
And all of it. Every single flame of that animosity was directed at one man.

Suleika’s 5 star review

20 stars, I wish I could. If you read #Nerd you already fell in love with Romeo and Rimmel, you already know the characters and you know how awesome they are. I loved that the author (who is a fave of mine) didn’t change Romeo in this story. Some authors change their characters when they do series but Cambria left her characters true to what they were in #Nerd and I am so glad she did. You can obviously see that Romeo and Rimmel love each other even more if that is possible but Romeo is still the same charming, flirty, popular guy and Rimmel is just as nerdy.
There was a bit more drama and a whole lot of action in this part of the story and I loved it all. I truly dislike Zach, he is the perfect villain, I wanted him gone or hurt or something, ugh! He is so good at being bad. He is the biggest bully ever!!!
As I was reading (really fast because it was so good of a story) I noticed that the story was ending and I needed more, like a whole lot more. I can’t wait for #Player so that we can finally see how the story will play out after that ending. OMG! It was so emotional because you just don’t know what will happen next.
Read #Nerd first or you will be lost but definitely pick this one up and read it, it is that good and more…

Cambria Hebert is a bestselling novelist of more than twenty books. She went to college for a bachelor’s degree, couldn’t pick a major, and ended up with a degree in cosmetology. So rest assured her characters will always have good hair.
Besides writing, Cambria loves a caramel latte, staying up late, sleeping in, and watching movies. She considers math human torture and has an irrational fear of chickens (yes, chickens). You can often find her running on the treadmill (she’d rather be eating a donut), painting her toenails (because she bites her fingernails), or walking her chorkie (the real boss of the house).
Cambria has written within the young adult and new adult genres, penning many paranormal and contemporary titles. Her favorite genre to read and write is romantic suspense. A few of her most recognized titles are: Text, Torch, Tryst, Masquerade, and Recalled.

Suleika’s 5 star review

Best book I have ever read. This is officially my #1 book now. This book is so well written, there is so much emotion put into words.
This is the best ugly cry I’ve ever had and not just while reading a book, I have never cried this hard in my life before… and I cry a lot. The book will not just make you cry, it had many moments when I was laughing out loud.
Characters:
Savannah is a very strong character. I absolutely loved her, she is a different character, her personality was not something that we see a lot in books.
You will fall in love with Fletcher right away, he is so perfect and funny and a gentleman and yet he has a big secret, one that I won’t spoil for you, one that makes the story what it is.
Lizzy is a hoot and the perfect best friend.
Ben is Fletcher’s best friend and I loved how the author worked him into the story, I won’t spoil anything…
The story will pull you in right away, it is one of those that you will need to read in one sitting and one that after you read the first chapter you are hooked.
This book has destroyed me, I’m truly heartbroken. I cried for so long, once I started crying I didn’t stopped till I read the last word and then I cried for 15 minutes after that, it is that sad. But so good, it was a good cry.
The story does have a HEA ending but not the one you expect. Was I happy that Savannah was happy? Yes, I was but I still wanted what I could not have in the story.
I wish I could give this book more that 5 stars.
To the author: I wish you get a publishing deal or something for this awesome book. It needs to be a best seller, it needs to be in the window of bookstores.
Everyone needs to read this book. I will recommend to all my book loving friends.

Vicky’s 5* Review

I really liked getting to know Cali and Owen. I thought it was great that they had found each other again and reconnected. There was a LOT of steaminess throughout the story.. But enough storyline to keep you wondering what was going to happen next. Add in drama and some twists here and there and it made for a great read. Michelle was very descriptive and that helped make you feel as if you could see what she was describing. Owen is definitely Book Boyfriend Material.. Hot, caring, and a hefty pocketbook.. He would do anything for Cali and makes sure to let her know how much she means to him, but when disaster strikes and unknown people try to bring Cali harm, will he be able to? Or will they both fall prey to what evil is lurking? If you like a steamy read that will keep you intrigued then this one is for you…

Blurb:

People spend their whole lives being condescending cockstars. Assuming they know something when they don’t. Assuming they know who someone is when they have no idea. Assuming that, because they can see something, they understand it. Let me tell you right now, STOP ASSUMING! Until you walk a day in someone’s gold-studded hooker heels, you do not know them or their story. Do not assume your struggle is worse simply because it’s yours. Do not assume they are ok just because they look to be so. And do not assume you are a better person simply because someone chooses to sin differently than you.

My family has money. We buy what we want without fear of being destitute, and we will never worry about having food or any other necessities. My struggle in life is not with the money, but where it comes from. My father’s secret is carrying a hefty price tag that I can no longer afford. My soul is priceless, and he is stripping it away from me. My world isn’t all rainbows, sparkle, and diamonds falling from my exit hole like Rory’s story portrayed. For every high, there is a low, and the higher you go, the further you have to fall.

I have the best things in life, except for life itself. Everyone I love has moved away; my passion to exist has deflated; my job is a joke; but more than anything, I hate who I am allowing myself to become. Is there anyone strong enough to hold my hand on this road to self-preservation, or am I to travel it alone?

If you start my story, please find it in yourself to finish it before you judge me. Don’t assume you can know where I am headed without seeing where I have already been. I am Amandolette Riaz, and I am a glitzed-up glitch in today’s delicate world.

**High Class Harlot is Book 2 in the Switching Tracks Series. It can be read as a standalone but most characters are introduced in Book 1, Trailer Park Princess. High Class Harlot picks up in timeline where Trailer Park Princess ends.**

Review:

******Where do I even start. In the first book in the series Trailer Park Princess we got to meet Rory’s crazy best friend Mando, this is her story. And I anxiously awaited this one. I loved Mando and here we get to see a different side of her. As she struggles with new revelations and relationships we find her #Sparkle starting to fade. Being as stubborn as she is she keeps it all on the inside and tries to deal with it on her own. Will she be able to bring her shine back? Or will she self destruct and take everyone down with her? And although I love her craziness I was glad to get to know her on a deeper level. The story was well written and I devoured it in NO time. I cannot wait to see what the other stories in the series bring. I like to get to know the character’s back story. It really helps you understand why they are, even if you hate them. Ugh of course we have to deal with #DRAMA and #ISSUES but this would not be Mando’s story with out it. This is a must read for those who like an excellent story-line filled with twists, romance, and a grandma just as crazy as Mando. And don’t forget to #LetYourTacoSparkle ******

Vicky’s Review of A Beautiful Mess By: T.K. Leigh

Image

About the Book:

RECOMMENDED FOR READERS 18 AND UP DUE TO STRONG LANGUAGE, SEXUAL SITUATIONS, AND MILD VIOLENCE.

What happens when you lose everyone that promised they would always be there for you? How can you protect the few pieces of your shattered heart that remain?

Olivia Adler is a woman with a troubled past. After losing her parents at the young age of six and being raised by an uncle who she lost years later, she refuses to get attached to anyone, including friends. For the past decade, she has been able to remain unattached to any man, too worried about losing someone to get too close. Until Alexander Burnham walks into her life one night and changes everything. But he has issues of his own. And he’s keeping a secret that could turn her world upside-down. Will Olivia let Alexander in enough for him to get close and protect her from a force threatening her very existence, or will she push him away, scared of letting Alexander in, in order to protect her heart?

A Beautiful Mess is the first installment of a three part series sure to captivate the heart with a story of secrets, courage, and love.

What I Thought:

I really enjoyed this book. In A Beautiful Mess we meet Olivia Adler & Alexander Burnham( or as I like to call him Mr. B). They were best friend’s growing up until one fateful day when everything changes.. Imagine going from having everything to having it all  ripped  away in a matter of minutes no family, no best friend, nothing. It’s no wonder Olivia has intimacy issues~ Enter Keira who is Olivia’s lil bit quirky and fun loving bestie.. Keira helps keep Olivia grounded ,well… tries to anyways. I really enjoyed their interaction with one another. There are also a few other interesting character’s to meet I am hoping in the next book to learn a little more about Alexander’s family. Speaking of Alexander Mr. “People only call me Mr. Burnham in the bedroom…” Love HIM. And although he is a little over protective (completely understandable) I think there is enough tenderness, Alot of sexiness, and some spunk to make him a definite book boyfriend to keep an eye on.  Will Olivia and Mr.B learn how to move past all their issues and learn how to love with-out fear?  I definitely would recommend this book, even though it is book one in a three part series. T.K. Leigh did a wonderful job, made sure there was enough romance, mystery, drama, and suspense that left  me wanting MORE.. And I can’t wait for more of Olivia & Alexander’s story in A Tragic Wreck Coming Jan. 27th 2014

T K Leigh 

T.K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is a producer / attorney by trade. Originally from New England, she now resides in sunny Southern California with her husband, dog and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband). She always had a knack for writing, but mostly in the legal field. It wasn’t until recently that she decided to try her hand at creative writing and is now addicted to creating different characters and new and unique story lines in the Contemporary Romantic Suspense genre.

When she’s not planted in front of her computer, writing away, she can be found running and training for her next marathon (of which she has run over fifteen fulls and far too many halfs to recall). Unlike Olivia, the main character in her Beautiful Mess series, she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.

“A Tragic Wreck,” the highly anticipated continuation of her “Beautiful Mess” series is scheduled to be released February 4, 2014.
