The Porter brothers were raised to live and die by Three Rules.
One, a Porter always keeps what’s his.
Two, a Porter leaves no enemy standing.
Three…

Greer’s been searching for love in all the wrong places. He wants kids … and lots of them, so it’s time to get busy and find the lucky woman to share his bed and his life. Though there isn’t a lot to choose from in the small town of Treepoint, he has managed to narrow his choices down to three.

The strange thing is, the one he’s falling in love with remains a mystery, hiding her face and name in the messages she sends from behind her computer. The mysterious woman may dodge his questions about her identity, but it’s only a matter of time before she finds out that this Porter brother won’t back away from something he wants, and he wants her.

Come hell or high water, he will find the one who goes by KentuckyGirl and make her his, despite what anyone says, even her. And KentuckyGirl is going to find out the last Porter rule the hard way: A Porter always stands his ground and leads his prey into his waiting arms…

About Jamie Begley

“I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.

Taking after my mother, I’ve always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduated this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently I am writing five series of books- The Last Riders, The VIP Room, Predators MC, Biker Bitches, and The Dark Souls.

All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best.”

About Hold Me Down:

Talia Benson has always been independent, unafraid to go after what she wants, regardless of setback, injury, or failure. But between her father’s conditional tuition payments and her mother’s nagging concern over her emotional state, Talia’s suffocating. So when Talia meets doctoral student Sean Poole, she can’t figure out why she wants him to control her. Why she wants him to boss her around. Why she wants him to hurt her. Talia learns the hard way that not all control is created equal, and sometimes submitting is the most empowering thing in the world.

EXCERPT

“Are you done eating?”

“More or less,” he said. “Why?”

“Because I’m not, which means you have to keep talking.”

One corner of his mouth kicked up. “Do I.”

“Yes,” I said, and pointed my chopsticks at his arms. “Tell me about these. You’re not in some kind of motorcycle gang, are you?”

He snorted. “I am not.” He moved his empty bowl aside and laid his left arm on the table, pushing his sleeve up to his elbow. His forearm was covered in blue and black and yellow splatter, outlines of symbols I didn’t recognize, and what looked like squares of embroidery in red and black. He dragged his hand over his arm as if he needed to touch them to remember what they meant.

I don’t know why I thought I would able to eat while he did this.

“So,” he said, pointing at a three-pronged symbol splashed with blue and yellow, “this is a tryzub, which is basically the coat of arms of Ukraine. The blue and gold, those are the colors of the Ukrainian flag; blue sky, golden wheat. And this”—he tapped the red and black squares that faded behind the tryzub—“is a traditional Ukrainian embroidery pattern.”

The waiter came up and asked us if we were done. I hadn’t touched my Pho since Sean had laid his arm on the table, so yeah, probably I was done. He took our bowls and vanished.

Sean flipped his arm over, showing me veins branching blue like tributaries under his skin. Two medieval-style lions bracketed an elegant script I couldn’t read, above a minimalist skyline I didn’t recognize. He dragged his finger over the text as he said, “‘Where you come from is part of where you’re going.’ It’s an Anthony Burgess quote.”

“Cyrillic?” I guessed.

“Correct.”

“Can you say it in Ukrainian?”

He grinned. “Zvidky vy rodom ye chastynoyu toho, de vy zbyrayetesya.”

I let out a theatrical sigh and rested my chin in my hands. He laughed. “You could’ve told me to go to hell, and I’d ask you repeat yourself.”

“I’d never tell you that, cupcake.”

“Suck-up,” I muttered. “So what is this?” I tapped the skyline on his skin, then jerked my hand back like I’d been burned. “God. Sorry. Rude.”

“How was that rude?”

“It’s rude to just—I don’t know. Touch people without their permission.”

He cocked his head and smiled at me. “Are you asking for permission to touch me?”

Oh my God. “I—no? Yes? What’s the correct answer here?”

His grin widened and I wanted to crawl under the table. “It’s okay,” he said. “You can touch me if you want to.”

FRIEND ZONED – RELEASE DAY BLITZ

All’s fair in love and war,
until someone ends up in an arranged marriage.
friend zoned Book Cover
FRIEND ZONED
WREN MICHAELS
Genre: New Adult Romance, Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Wren Michaels
Publication Date: March 28, 2017
Catherine ‘Cat’ Marek has a sociology paper due on dissecting the laws of attraction. Project Panty Drop will case study two different men; one she’ll go after in person and the other she’ll attempt to charm online. Hiding behind her beauty, she tries to cover up her true geeky side, and the fact that she’s partially deaf.
Jaidev ‘Jai’ Sankar needs to knock out a paper for his online sociology class. After an encounter with the Texas Tease, Cat Marek, he decides Project Friend Zoned will be the ultimate topic, proving a guy can remain in the friend zone with a girl he finds attractive.
As Cat puts the moves into overdrive, Jai finds it harder to remain in the ‘friend zone’ with her. The only thing keeping him from letting go is the fact his hardcore Hindu parents have a wedding scheduled for him. When neither can resist their attraction, the fight no longer becomes about their papers, but about the freedom to love each other.
Wren Michaels never disappoints me, and Friend Zoned was no different. … Get this one. You won’t be disappointed.
– LeTeisha Newton, Goodreads Reviewer
With a mix of old world and new this book does NOT disappoint! I highly recommend it!!

Excerpt From the Book

Her face haunted me. The adorable dimple pitted in her cheek caught my eye first. Sexy full lips that folded into a gorgeous smile just about took my breath away. I did my best not to continuously stare at her, managing to throw just a few glances here and there hoping she got the message. But she didn’t take the bait. Instead, she gave me a ‘too good for you’ glance while she plowed down a server on her way to the bathroom, probably to restock the toilet paper in her bra.
The Texas Tease, I called it. Lots of girls at UT had it—this one in particular—in spades. Shorter than my normal tastes, her alluring doe-eyes caught me off guard. The memory of her petite frame sashaying as she worked those sexy, black pumps played on a loop in my head. Along with the way her long, brown hair bounced with every step like a damn shampoo commercial.
She drove me insane, and I didn’t even know her name. At least Mick confirmed she was a student at UT, apparently in one of his Economics classes.
She intrigued me, sitting in a sports bar drinking beer while her prissy friend sipped wine. I even caught her glancing at the Longhorn game on the big screen. A cute girl who likes beer and football? Every guy’s dream. If only she weren’t a snob. But, I’d put her in her place. And I had the perfect plan.
The ring of my Skype alert disrupted my plotting. Incoming message from Kanti, my best friend.
Kanti: Hey …
Me: What’s up, brat?
Kanti: You busy?
Me: Never too busy for you.
Kanti: Stop with the sugar, you’re giving me diabetes.
Me: LOL Better get used to it.
Kanti: Ugh. Don’t remind me. Quick, what do you want for your birthday? You got the new Mortal Kombat release already?
Me: Yeah, of course I do. But you don’t have to get me anything. You know that.
Kanti: I can’t NOT get you anything.
Me: Tell me you talked to your parents and the wedding’s called off. That would be an awesome present.
Kanti: Seriously? You know that isn’t even in the realm of possibilities. So shut it.
Me: I can dream, can’t I?
Kanti: Yeah, and I know what you do in those dreams. Not even going there.
Me: You’re such a bitch. Why do I love you?
Kanti: Because we’re best friends.
Me: Well, there’s that.
Mick yelled through the door. “Jai, you comin’ down or what?”
“In a minute,” I replied.
Me: I gotta go. Kegger tonight and we’re hosting.
Kanti: Email me and let me know what to get you.
Me: Fine.
Kanti: LOL Kiss Kiss
Me: Whatever. LOL TTYL
I closed the lid on my laptop as Mick flung the door open.
“People are starting to arrive. You’re on keg duty first.”
I tossed him a nod. “Yeah, I know. I’m coming. Just finishing up some notes on my Sociology project.”
“I thought you dropped that class?” He folded his arms, leaning against the door-frame.
“I was going to until Professor Wilkinson agreed to let me take it online, since it’s the same time as my cinematography course.” I pulled out a notepad. “What’d you say that chick’s name was again? The one we saw at the bar today.”
“Catherine Marek. But I think she goes by Cat.” Mick shrugged. “Why? I thought you said she was a snob, and you weren’t gonna pursue her?”
“Oh, I’m not. I got my sights set on another girl I’ve been talking to for a little while. But I think that Cat chick will make for a perfect target on my sociology paper.” I wrote down her name and underlined it five times. “I’m calling it, Friend Zoned.”
Mick laughed. “Oh, this ought to be good. What’re you gonna do?”
“It’s what I’m not gonna do that’s going be the best part. I’m going to act like I’m interested, then when she takes the bait, I’ll friend zone her. I’m going to prove that a guy can be sexually attracted to a girl who’s interested in him and still remain only friends. I’ll be the best ‘friend’ she’s ever gonna have.”

About Wren Michaels

Author Pic

Wren hails from the frozen tundra of Wisconsin where beer and cheese are their own food groups. But a cowboy swept her off her feet and carried her below the Mason-Dixon line to Texas, where she promptly lost all tolerance for cold and snow. Fueled by coffee, dreams, and men in kilts, Wren promises to bring you laughter, sexy fun time, and action that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The easiest way to her heart is anything to do with the Green Bay Packers, Doctor Who, or Joss Whedon.

TALK COWBOY TO ME BY CAROLYN BROWN – REVIEW


Carolyn Brown brings her signature southern quirkiness to this original tale of Texas love. Includes bonus content.

One cowboy. One cowgirl. One ranch.
Who will win the Double Deuce by the Fourth of July?

Adele O’Donnell knew that Double Deuce Ranch had to be hers the second she walked onto the property. Freshly divorced, she sees it as the perfect spot for her and the kids to start a new life. Remington Luckadeau was always a carefree playboy…until his suddenly orphaned nephews became his responsibility. The Double Deuce Ranch would be the perfect place to raise two boys. But some fiery woman is fighting him for it, and Remington is not sharing—no matter how the sparks fly when he and Adele are together.

Ebook includes full-length bonus book: Reckless in Texas by Kari Lynn Dell:
Rough and tumble, cocky and charming, Joe Cassidy’s everything a rodeo superstar should be…and he’s way out of Violet’s league.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

Talk Cowboy to Me (Lucky Cowboys) is a rousing good read! Carolyn Brown does it again! When two families want the same ranch, and one month to show that they are the right ones to get it, what will the outcome be? Talk Cowboy To Me settles this dispute  between its pages. Remigton cares for his two nephews after the death of their parents. Adele is recently divorced and cares for her two daughters and wants a new start. They both end up at the Double Deuce ranch wanting to buy it, but the owner wants them to both live there for a month before he makes a decision. I love the children in this book!! They will steal your heart. I recommend this book to everyone. I give TALK COWBOY TO ME 5/5 STARS.
