Blog Tour & Review ~ Carson ~ by ~ Melissa Foster

She needs to move forward with her life, 
but how can she when Carson still owns her heart?
CARSON
Bad Boys After Dark #3

Releasing July 11, 2017
World Literary Press

Second chances really do exist…



As the founder of a multimillion-dollar international security business, Carson Bad exposes secrets for a living. He knows better than to forge relationships built on them. But for years he did just that with his best friend, and secret lover, Tawny Bishop. She brought a sense of calm and understanding to his life–in and out of the bedroom. Until one fateful night when a knock at the door changed everything.

Tawny is no longer a naive college student. She’s a sought-after perfumer living in Paris. She has plenty of resources at her fingertips, and lots of lonely nights to think about the only man she’s ever loved–the one she ran away from all those years ago. She needs to move forward with her life, but how can she when Carson still owns her heart?

Maybe showing up in the middle of the night unannounced isn’t the best route to unraveling the past and figuring out her future, but Tawny has played it safe for ten long years, and it’s only made her long for the man she never should have walked away from. Now she’s back in Carson’s life, and he’s determined not to make the same mistake twice. If only he knew what that mistake was…

TastyToursExcerpt

With her heart in her throat, she lifted her gaze, and lost her breath at the sight of the strikingly handsome man who had once been her lover and best friend standing a few feet away with his brother, Brett. She’d met Brett once when he’d come to visit Carson at college.

Her attention moved swiftly back to Carson, and she was unable to look away. His white dress shirt was rolled up to his elbows, revealing muscular forearms, and tucked into perfectly tailored dark slacks. He was broader now, tall, and sturdy. A big, beautiful man with the classic good looks of a 1950s movie star. He raked a hand through his short hair, laughing at something Brett must have said. His familiar laughter made her knees weak.

Please look over.

No. Don’t. Her heart might explode.

Wait. Yes, look over.

Oh God.

What was she doing? She was a professional, educated woman. She should not be weak-kneed over the sight of a man. But apparently her body didn’t get the memo, because her pulse skyrocketed, and she could barely breathe. She gripped the handle of her suitcase tighter, using it for balance. Carson turned, his chiseled features softened by the hint of a five-o’clock shadow. Their eyes connected, and his brows knitted, his jaw tensed.

Disappointment clutched her. Didn’t he recognize her? Or did he? Was he angry? She should walk away, but she was pinned in place by his riveting gaze.

 

TastyToursReview

Oh Carson! He might be my favorite Bad brother! And Melissa Foster is becoming one of my go-to authors!

Tawny has lived in Paris for 10 years as a perfumer. After a failed marriage, she wants to go back and explore the chemistry she had with her BFF/turned hookup, Carson.

Carson is surprised to see Tawny, but glad, especially when he finds out she’s divorced now. She’s not getting away from him this time but Tawny lives in Paris, so how is that going to work out?

5 stars!

Review Tour ~ Sin ~ by ~ Emma Hart

 

 

 

Damien fox lived up to his name. Cunning, sly, and dangerous, fifty percent of Vegas’ strip clubs were his.

Whatever he wanted, money, attention, women, he got.

And now he wanted to buy my bar, no matter the cost.

I wanted him to go to hell on a first-class ticket.

He played a dirty game, and I followed his rules. I let him think he would win.

Despite our differences, it was clear to see that we were no more than two broken hearts colliding in the darkness.

Closed off, sexy, and holding a pain that would crush a lesser man, he was the ultimate sin.

One I couldn’t deny myself, even though I knew better than to trust a fox…

(SIN is book one of the Vegas Nights series. Each book in this series is a standalone novel.)

TBRreview

I didn’t like Damien at first, but I think that was the point. He was too confident, too rude, too pushy and he was just too-too! But that was why Dahlia balanced him out SO well. She was the Yin to his Yang. She didn’t put up with his pushing, even when she found it attractive. She would fight until the very end.

And then, Damien won my heart. It took time, but he got me. I wanted to reach through the pages (well ok my phone) and shake him! And then I wanted to hug him and comfort him.

And there are WAY too many funny quotes! I can’t quote any because I don’t want to spoil them for you. But you’ll know what they are when you read them.

5 stars!

I read this book at work (don’t tell) and I was consumed by it. I had to know about Kam and his Lemon and how their story would play out.

I like that it was all in one box set because I could just go from finishing one story to starting another. I do wish that there will be more in the series featuring Kam’s teammates and their shenanigans as they seem like a great bunch of funny guys.

Definitely a different M. Never than I have read before but I liked it just as much as her others!!

5 stars!

When you can't trust yourself, how can you ask anyone else to?

It's been months since Aden Colt left the Army, and still the memories haunt him. When he moved into a tiny boat off the California coast, he thought he'd found the perfect place to escape life. Then Sawyer shows up and turns his simple life upside down. Beautiful and sophisticated, she seems out of place in this laid-back beach town. Something is pushing her to experience everything she can—including Aden. But as much as he wants her, starting a relationship with Sawyer puts them both at risk. For Aden, the past doesn't stay there; it shows up unexpectedly, uncontrollably, and doesn't care whose life it wrecks.

Sawyer, another name I love for a female!! Plus I have an addiction to JB Salsbury books and this one was just as addicting as the rest of them! Whether it’s loss, grief, pain, JB Salsbury writes it so well that you are sucked into the story and are feeling it just as the characters are.

Both Aden and Sawyer have had some sad things in their lives. They meet while both are suffering. But something changes and they’re able to heal each other, or potentially. They both have some very deep issues and hidden truths that they haven’t shared with each other that could break them.

Another JB Salsbury book that sucks you in and leaves you with a total book hangover!

About EYES ON YOU (Blasphemy #3):

She wants to explore her true desires, and he wants to watch…

When a sexy stranger asks Wolf Henrikson to rescue her from a bad date, he never expected to want the woman for himself.

As Wolf introduces her to his world at the play club, Blasphemy, Liv finds herself tempted to explore submission and exhibitionism with the hard-bodied Dom even as she’s scared to trust again.

EXCERPT:

The silence that followed was thick with tension, and Liv almost couldn’t decide if she’d hallucinated what’d happened or if this first date was truly just that bad. Jerry wouldn’t make eye contact and, instead, peered down at his cell phone beneath the table. So she took the opportunity to survey the diners sitting at the horseshoe-shaped bar near them in the hopes she’d see someone, anyone, she knew. God, please give me a way to escape Mr. I Don’t Use Menus. But God had clearly forsaken her, because the party of three women having a girls’ night out were strangers. As were the various groupings of men, some of whom wore Orioles gear and watched the pre-game commentary on the captioned television screens above the bar. An elderly man she didn’t know sat alone nearest to their high-boy table nursing a glass of bourbon, and two seats down from him…sat the hottest man Liv had ever seen.

And that was her impression just from seeing him in profile.

He had dark blond hair and a chiseled jaw, and even sitting, it was clear that he was tall.

Seriously broad shoulders filled out a dark green button-down shirt, and big hands gripped a glass of water. Now God was just being mean. Because someone was going to get to be with that man tonight while she was stuck here with Jerry of the I Don’t Use Menus clan. As she watched, not-Jerry pressed his cell phone to his ear and began talking in tones too low for her to hear.

On a sigh, Liv returned her attention to Jerry. Not that it mattered, because his gaze remained fixed on his phone. She drained the rest of her Prosecco and wished someone would bring her the bottle. That wouldn’t be too awkward for a first date, right? Right?

TBRreview

The Blasphemy series are one of my favorite series! The series brings a personal and human side to BDSM. Often BDSM has a stigma that it's people legitimately beating other people. And that's not it at all.

Wolf is super hot and just looking for a new playmate. He ends up rescuing Liv from a horrid date. And enters her into his world that she's only had fantasies about.

A hot, quick read that I was able to read before bed, and stayed up much longer than I should have to finish their story.

5 stars!

Review Tour ~ Trust ~ by ~ Kylie Scott

 

 

Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.

“You were going to give it up to Duncan Dickerson?” he sneered. “Are you serious?”

I halted, staring at him. This was not good. “How do you know about that?”

“Anders overheard you and Hang talking.”

“Bastard.”

“Well?” he demanded, acting all authoritarian. Idiot.

“To be fair, I didn’t know his last name was Dickerson,” I said. “That’s unfortunate. Though, I wasn’t actually planning on marrying him, so . . .”

“Not funny.”

I shrugged.

“You barely know the guy.”

“Um, yeah. None of your concern. We’re not talking about this.” How mortifying! My face burned bright. People should just gather around and cook s’mores. “I appreciate that we’re friends. You mean a lot to me. But this is going to have to fall under definitely none of your damn business, so go away please.”

“We’re talking about it.” He advanced a step.

“No we are not.” And I retreated.

“You were going to let a complete stranger touch you.” Advance.

Retreat. “People do it all the time. You do it all the time.”

“But you don’t,” he said, taking the final step, backing me up against the side of his car and getting all in my face. “Edie, this is your first time we’re talking about. Isn’t it?”

“Yes, and it’s going to be messy and painful and probably horribly embarrassing and I just want it over and done with.” I tried to meet his eyes but failed, settling for a spot on his right shoulder. “You’re not a girl; you wouldn’t understand. Also, last time I checked, you’re not the gatekeeper of my hymen, John Cole. So back the fuck off.”

He said nothing.

Deep, calming breaths. “Look, someday I’ll meet someone I really like and we’ll have a deep and meaningful relationship and go at it like bunnies. But I don’t want to be the dumb virgin in that scenario.”

He slowly shook his head.

“Also, I do not want to die a virgin.”

“What? What the hell are you talking about?”

“Hey, you and I both know death can occur at any time.”

“This is crazy.”

“I’m seeing a therapist!” I told his shoulder. “I don’t know if you noticed, but I’m a little bit messed up these days. It’s hard for me to trust people. That’s not going to change anytime soon.”

He screwed up his face at me. “Wha—”

“I’m just trying to be practical.”

“Well, you’re being ridiculous. None of this makes sense.”

“It does to me.”

Again, he said nothing.

In fact, he said nothing for so long that I finally looked him in the eye. The anger had left him, replaced by an emotion I didn’t recognize. Worst of all, he still smelled like summer. A little sweat and the open night air, everything I loved. Liked. I meant liked.

“What?” I said, finally.

He let loose a breath. “I’ll do it.”

 

 

 

 

 

TBRreview

 

I’m not a huge YA reader – NA yes but these characters were 17/18 so I figure they could qualify as NA.

Edie is living her young life as normal. She and her friend are at a Harry Potter movie-thon and need some snacks. Edie runs into the convenience store and there her life changes. She ends up being part of an armed holdup and having a gun pointed at her more than once. This is also where she meets John who saved her life. As I was reading this event, I could feel my anxiety rising because I was in the story watching this armed robbery.

This crime changes Edie drastically. She is suddenly acting out, quick to lose her temper and just wanting to not be “the girl who had a gun pointed at her”. Thankfully, her savior John, forms a friendship with Edie and is just what she needs to get through the nightmares. And John needs her because he’s leaving his life of being the high school dealer and needs a friend.

I loved this story so much! Ever since I was introduced to Kylie Scott’s writing, I haven’t read a book of hers that I haven’t loved. Plus this one was set near my hometown, so that added an extra love.

5 stars!
