Release Tour & Review ~ Juked ~ by ~ M.E. Carter

Title: Juked
Author: M.E. Carter
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: June 16, 2016

Juked: verb. 

/jook-t/

 

A slang soccer term meaning: fake out, deceive, confuse your opponent

 

See examples Daniel Zavaro and Quincy Watson:

 

As the rising star in Houston, Daniel has found fame as Captain of his Pro soccer team and the city’s most eligible bachelor. Daniel has everything – except someone special – and that suits him just fine. He doesn’t want, or need, complications.

 

Quincy has baggage, and lots of it. After a tragic accident spins her world on its axis, she finds herself as a single mother, raising a newborn nephew she never knew she had. Between parenthood, her full-time job, and dealing with the suffocating grief of losing her sister, every day is a struggle. 

 

When they begin to cross paths unexpectedly and often, an unlikely friendship starts to evolve. Feelings change. Lines get crossed. What happens next surprises them both…

 

Before they know it– they’ve been Juked.


“I really do recommend it if you’re in the mood for a good, witty sport-romance with great characters, a great storyline and a baby! Did I mention that the baby is the cutest thing ever?<3” – Goodreads Review

“4 out of 5 “I Might Just Start Watching Soccer” Blushes” – Goodreads Reviewer

“4.5 stars!! Quincy, you inspire me. Daniel, you grew on me. Chance, you stole my heart. This book was beautiful, and EVERYONE should read it.” – Goodreads Review

“I hope you don’t mind,” she says, changing subjects and breaking the tension. “Before you called, I was going to catch up on Outlander. I’m several episodes behind.”


“Fine with me,” I say. “I’m used to those soft-porn shows.”

“Soft-porn shows?”

“You know… Outlander, Game of Thrones, True Blood. Soft porn.”

She scoffs at me. “We’re watching Starz, Daniel, not pay-per-view.”

I lean back and put my feet up on the coffee table. “Baby, the only difference between Starz and porn is that actual porn doesn’t have a plot or as big a budget.”

She rolls her eyes. “Whatever. Soft porn,” she grumbles under her breath. She picks up the popcorn and puts it on the couch between us.

I snap up a handful and toss some in my mouth as the review of the last episode plays and the credits roll.

Adult language. Adult situations. Brief nudity.

That’s what the parental ratings warn us of. It is so, so wrong.

The first thing that pops up on the screen is a woman on a bed and a man is with her. With his head between her legs for a very long time. And now there’s nipples, lots and lots of nipples. And his head is still between her legs.

“Still trying to convince yourself it’s not high-budget porn?” I joke, trying to break the sexual tension that has sprung up again.

“Oh my god, this is so awkward,” she replies, eyes still on the screen. Her ears turn bright red, which is apparently her version of a blush. She looks so uncomfortable. 

I sip my beer and munch popcorn, ignoring the woody in my pants from imagining that it’s Quincy and me on the screen. When all else fails, insert humor. “Man, he’s really going at it, isn’t he?”

“Would you shut up?” She laughs and smacks my arm. “This is weird enough without you making jokes.”

“Sorry. I’ll just sit here quietly while we watch the non-porn.” She rolls her eyes but smiles anyway.
 review
I know nothing about soccer.  Wait, I take that back, I know only the goalie can use their hands.
Anywho, on to Juked.  Juked was a fantastic read with sad moments, hilarity, sweetness and love.  Daniel is Captain of his professional soccer team.  And is enjoying his life, playing soccer and enjoying the perks of being a professional athlete when he meets Quincy.
Quincy is having a horrible day when she meets Daniel.  Her sister that she loves dearly but was estranged from has died and left her as the guardian of an almost newborn baby boy.  Daniel comes along and is able to help her when she needs it the most.
Such a good read that makes you laugh and cry while you’re reading it.
5 stars!

“Mother, reader, storyteller – ME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.”

Retiring from the military was the right decision for Beckett Fitzgerald. He’s landed the girl of his dreams, the ring is on her finger and the only other mission he’s interested in is putting a baby in Promise’s belly by the time they get back from the honeymoon. Simple, right?

 

Swept off her feet by Beckett, with his scarred face and Monet blue eyes, Promise is finally learning that true love isn’t just for fairy tales. With her brother finally free from the horrors of foster care and her own personal hero hell-bent on teaching her all the magical ways her body belongs to him, her once-in-a-lifetime feels so real.

 

But, before their honeymoon suitcases are packed, a knock on the door and a best friend’s betrayal threaten to tear them apart. Beckett will cross oceans and leave a path of destruction behind to protect what is his, but when promises are broken, and the truth is revealed, will their all-consuming love be enough to carry them through?

 

Author’s Note: You receive both books! Cherish is the conclusion to the best-selling, Promise which is also included here as free bonus content so you can read Beckett & Promise’s story from beginning to end. This book will give you a sweet happily ever after, an insatiable head-over-heels in love alpha hero, panty melting yumminess and no cheating.

 

AP new - excerpt.jpg

 

“You needy, babe?” I drag my face lower, spreading her ass cheeks with the dig of my massive hands, breathing on her soaking cunt, teasing her. Her lust smells like sex candy and it’s hard as fuck not to dive right in, but I want her quivering and begging. “Touch yourself, let me see your fingers inside you. Get some of this sweet pussy on your fingers and taste yourself.”

I don’t know what I love more: fucking her, eating her, or watching her masturbate. The first time I had her Jill-off for me, she was so cute. The hint of embarrassed innocence only made me hotter than fuck, but since then, she’s learned how much it pleases me to watch her touch herself. And I’m the luckiest fuck on the planet because my girl seems to like to please me as much as I like to please her.

She slips her arm down below her body, coming up right in front of my face where I’m still locked behind her, admiring all that is mine with my hands, keeping her spread open and my eyes glued to the shiny, silk gash that has my name written all over it.

“That’s it, babe. Show me what that pussy likes.”

Her fingers tremble as she settles them into the masterpiece of pink folds, stroking her clit, circling it and letting out her special musical fuck-me noises until my cock is near shooting off in my pants.

It’s more than I can take. When two of her fingers disappear into her soaking snatch, it’s my moment; I drive my face in, following her, kissing and licking where her fingers pump in and out. The sensation of her fingers under my tongue stroking herself and the flavour of her arousal tighten my balls until I see stars.

“Ummm, please…” Promise’s legs are quivering along with her voice.

“Drop that hand, babe, I’ll take it from here. Push your pussy back on my mouth and I’ll give you what you need.”

I eat her drenched pussy buffet until she can’t hold herself up. Then I flip her over, spread her legs until she yelps liked a kicked puppy and settle my mouth between her legs again, sucking down hard on her clit.

She tastes like every fantasy I’ve ever had. Sweeter, more sensual than anything I could imagine. The flavor runs directly from my mouth to my dick until I’m so hard I could cut glass.

My tongue dances around her swollen nub and I suck down until she gushes. I hear the music start to come from her. Her hips convulse and flounce under my face and I keep working, slamming two fingers into the river that pours out of her.

She moans my name until it seems as if she knows no other words right now and that’s how it damn well should be. My name is the only word she can form when she cums.

She twists as the orgasm takes over, practically knocking me backward, but my other hand keeps my little bronco’s thighs set tight. I drag my teeth over her clit until my face is soaked and she shakes like a damn earthquake. When she screams my name one more time and her voice gives out, my job here is done.

Well, not done. Never done.

Never.

All I ever wanted was to be a female fighter.

It was in my blood to smack people around.

Some girls wore pink dresses and makeup, I wore sneakers and bruises.

I was a loner, stuck to myself because I was different, until Camden Steel moved next door.

I punched him in the mouth, and he saw me through rose colored glasses from that day on.

I had everything I ever wanted.

The boy next door, inspiring career… until I didn’t.

He hates me. I deserve that.

They say you have to fight for what you want… What they don’t tell you… is it’ll cost you more than you’re willing to give to reach the top.

synopsis

 

Vickie’s mom gives her a gift on her eighteenth birthday. It’s a sexy nightgown. Vickie is given an ultimatum: Start working for her mother’s pimp/boyfriend, or get out of her trailer. Uncertain, Vickie chooses to go with her mother’s plan and give up her virginity.

 

Buck and Shep are best friends and roommates. Buck is the boisterous one, while Shep has been burned by rumors that he killed his parents as a boy. They see Vickie leave with Clay. When Vickie starts to struggle, having changed her mind, they rush in and save her, giving her a place to live. Vickie has always had a crush on them. Buck encourages her to explore her sexuality, and then pushes boundaries by including Shep, too.

 

The three of them fall into a domestic routine and intense relationship. Vickie’s mom and boyfriend try and get Vickie back, and it ends in a fight. The trailer park witnesses Shep and Buck beat the boyfriend. When the cops show, their instinct is to arrest Shep, but the neighbors get him off the hook with the truth. Vickie is startled and pleased with Buck and Shep’s protection of her.

 

Shep is experiencing difficulties at his job as a miner. His boss seems determined to get him fired. Shep needs the job so he can make enough money to get Buck and Vickie out of the trailer park. Vickie is finding herself through community college and is beginning to believe she has worth. Buck is content to find a stable relationship is more nourishing than flings.

 

After a cave-in at Shep’s work, his brush with mortality brings them closer. But the murder of Vickie’s mom makes Shep a suspect again– and not just with the cops. Buck and Shep fight and Shep runs before he can be arrested. Determined to prove his innocence, Vickie finds evidence that Shep never murdered his parents.

 

Vickie is tricked by a man bent on revenge. It’s the man who paid for her virginity and never got it. He’s the one who murdered her parents and subsequently tricks her into coming to him. He plans on hurting her and getting what he paid for.

 

Shep and Buck mend their hurt and realize Vickie is in trouble. They use their hunting skills to find her and save her in the nick of time. The police were following, hoping to nab Shep, but with Vickie’s evidence and some evidence from the scene of the crime, Shep is off the hook. After giving their stories at the police station, the three are released.
Vickie lets Shep know she didn’t just find the evidence that saved him– she found money his grandmother had hidden away for him. It’s enough money to buy their dreams of getting out of the trailer park. They build a home and a family together.

Amazon Review Tour ~ Fool For You ~ by ~ R.C. Martin

Title: Fool For You
Series: Made For Love Series
Author: R.C. Martin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 17, 2016


Judah St. Michaels is a man who seeks pleasure, not love. Never love. By rule, satisfaction is guaranteed while in his bed—yet, his women are always dismissed still begging for more. His frequent flyers are few, but variety breeds a challenge on which he thrives, and loneliness is not a burden he shoulders. But when he happens upon an exquisite, little redhead—whose shy demeanor he’d like to shatter in one night of passion—her reluctance to accept his offer changes his game completely.

Teddy Fitzpatrick doesn’t trust easily. The scars that define her cut deep, and love is a dream she’s afraid to chase. When a tall, dark, and gorgeous man enters her world, she knows right away that he’s the type to break hearts. Yet, try as she might, his persistence is hard to ignore, and her ability to resist soon dwindles down to nothing. Against her better judgment, she opens her heart, surrendering to the dominate force that he is.

But happily-ever-afters are not easy to come by, for assholes aren’t born, they’re made… And falling in love is a fool’s errand.

*Series STANDALONE. Written for audiences 18+ years of age, due to language and sexual content.

“Hoooowow!!! This book is everything and so much more! And to be honest, I’m so in love with it.” – Chatterbook Book Blog
“This epic monster book by RC Martin had me hooked from the very start. It is the perfect combination of sweet and sultry, innocent and erotic.” – Reader Review

 


 

“…..read the book.. it’s a really long book and it’s full of deliciousness… so read it. That is all!” – Author Hayley Faiman
review
Head’s Up: This book is longer than most – 624 pages according to Amazon. BUT you wouldn’t know it’s that long.  I read it over 2 days and I loved it!  I had to know what happened.  It wasn’t as if I read it and thought to myself “When will it end?”  I was just so into Judah and Teddy’s story.
Judah and Teddy’s relationship is huge and complex and sweet and just so consuming.  Judah is your typical manwhore who decides he wants Teddy once he sees her.  Teddy is unlike any other woman Judah has come across and that makes her more of a challenge.
Teddy has had a bad relationship before so she is justifiably skeptical and jaded somewhat.  Judah is exactly the type of man she doesn’t want to get involved with but is so interested in him as well.
I truly loved this story.  It is very well written and the characters angst is so real.
5 stars!
I’m a born and bred Coloradan. While I now reside in Virginia, the land of the Rocky Mountains is where I’ve left a piece of my heart and where my characters come to life. When I’m not writing I’m reading; when I’m not reading I’m writing…you know how it goes! I also enjoy cooking, baking, crocheting, and jigsaw puzzles. Basically, I’m an old soul with a young heart, nonchalantly waiting for my prince to come.

Bestselling author Devon Hartford brings you another scorching hot and scandalous standalone romance.

 

SOME SECRETS ARE TOO HARD TO KEEP

 

The night the EMTs rolled Lion Maxwell into my ER turned my life upside down.

Although he was bloody and battered from defending his title as the WMAA’s reigning cruiserweight champion, his cocky grin lit up the room.

And every cell in my body.

Our fiery chemistry was off the charts.

The ER staff sensed it.

Lion’s entourage and his drooling groupies sensed it too.

If the two of us had been alone, I might have done something entirely unprofessional and completely unethical right there in the exam room. But I was his attending physician. A sexual or romantic relationship with him was grounds for my termination or worse, revoking my medical license. I wouldn’t risk my career on a moment of passion. It didn’t stop that arrogant caveman from doing everything he could to get me into his hospital bed.

After denying his advances for weeks, the last thing I expected were the wild nights he would be spending in my bed.

It was supposed to be nothing more than a secret fling.

I knew it couldn’t last.

He was still my patient.

What we were doing was wrong.

If anyone found out, it could ruin my life.

But we couldn’t let go.

We were bound to each other on some primal level that consumed us.

Sometimes love is tragic.

Sometimes two people aren’t meant to be together.

But sometimes, two people overcome all adversity and build a love that lasts forever.

I knew deep in my heart that Lion Maxwell could be my happily ever after.

As long as we kept our love a secret.

I wish I’d known that some secrets are too hard to keep…
