EXCERPT

“Is the water cold—” Val asked before screaming when I pulled her in. She came up coughing and spluttering a grin on her gorgeous face, “Jesus, Flynn that wasn’t fair; you need to stop dunking me in pools.”

“Sure it was. You’re in now. You’d have stood there procrastinating about getting in here for a million years before you dipped your toes in the water then complained it was too cold. Am I right?” I asked sliding my arm around her and pulling her close to me.

“Oh. My. God. It’s Flynn Docherty. Remember me?” a blonde girl shrieked as she swam close to me. Valerie stiffened in my arms, and I rubbed her back slowly in reassurance.  I had no clue who the girl was. “We were in the same English Lit class at college. We met at Parker Sloan’s 4th of July party, remember?”

As soon as she said that I knew I’d fucked her. She was one of the many. Straight away I felt embarrassed for Valerie and knew that if I didn’t handle the scene correctly, she’d have my balls removed not so nicely and fed to Buster. I had no desire to shame the girl either. Glancing at Valerie, and then at the girl, I knew it was a no-brainer. She had been the one to approach me, and I knew Valerie was holding her breath because of the last time I’d inadvertently bumped into a girl we had both knew how that had ended.

“I’m sorry, I guess I don’t, I’ve probably met tens if not a hundred thousand people since then—”

“Hi, I’m Valerie, Flynn’s partner, nice to meet you,” Valerie said as she cut into the conversation.

The blonde looked blankly at Valerie then turned back to me, “So are you in town for long?” she asked, completely ignoring Val’s introduction and attempt to control the situation.

“My girl just greeted you, and you ignored her, that’s rude.”

“I wasn’t talking to her, I was talking to you, Flynn,” she said and smirked in Valerie’s direction.

Her response pissed me off and I felt Valerie’s arms slacken as her legs dropped from around my waist. She’d been trying to pull away from me, no doubt angered by the intrusion and the ignorant way the girl had dismissed her. I pulled her back tight to me and repositioned her legs, all the while staring the girl out and waiting for her to shake her head and clarify what she said in a less offensive way. When that didn’t happen, I went for her jugular vein.

“Okay, I had no wish to be rude, but since that seems to be your approach after muscling in on my private family time, I’ll answer the question you probably want to know. Were you a memorable fuck? If I fucked you, I don’t remember. I have no recollection of you whatsoever. You were one of very many girls I had back in college. I’ve no wish to hurt your feelings, but since you and I have different ideas about protecting my girl’s feelings, I’d just like to say our conversation here is done. Now if you’d excuse me, I’m spending precious time with my beautiful woman.”

NEW RELEASE
WORTH THE RISK
by
C.J. Lynne

Two men, a chance meeting, an unexpected fight for love…

Some risks are scarier than others
because they’re the most important ones we’ll ever undertake…

Purchase Link: Amazon.com

Worth the Risk 600x900.jpg

Series: Infinity Series, Book One
Genre: Gay/Lesbian, M/M Erotic Romance
Publication Date: November 7, 2016
Add to Goodreads

Love doesn’t exist…

Or so Tyler Johnson thinks. He’s never had much, if any, of it thrown his way. A chance meeting with the enigmatic Jaxon Markham causes Ty to—if still not believe in love—at least know without a doubt that lust is alive and well. Ty’s not looking for forever, but what’s the harm in spending a few days—and scorching nights—with Jax; as long as Jax plays by his rules and keeps things casual and uncomplicated?

Jax knows his luck has finally changed for the better when he lays eyes on Tyler. The man is gorgeous, and stirs feelings in Jax he’d thought he’d never experience. The more time Jax spends with Ty, the more certain he is that Ty’s his soulmate. Now all that remains is convincing the stubborn Tyler of that fact, but Jax is more than up for the task, because he’s nothing if not persistent—a fact the elusive Tyler will soon find out.

Jax quickly, and much too easily, demolishes all of Ty’s protective walls and Ty reluctantly begins to think that maybe that intangible emotion called love is alive and well after all, and perhaps finally within his grasp. However, when his ugly past returns to haunt him, making him doubt all the good he’s experienced with and because of Jax, Ty’s positive outlook crumbles, giving way to doubt and despair.

Can he be the man Jax needs and deserves? Or will past and present demons destroy Ty’s one chance at true happiness?

As a newly single mother, Carrie Farmer isn’t quite ready to jump back into the dating pool in Ardent Springs—especially since her last marriage was such a disaster. But if anyone could entice her to wade in a bit, it would be her hunky neighbor, Noah Winchester. He’s the perfect man: strong, protective, and smoking hot. But her eyes have deceived her before, and she’s no longer willing to hand over her heart so easily.

After completing several tours in the Middle East, Noah returns to his hometown a very different man. The former soldier’s plan to rest and relax is soon waylaid by the intriguing woman next door and her heart-stealing little girl. Something—or someone—put shadows in Carrie’s lovely eyes, and he’s determined to clear them away. But when hidden demons can no longer be ignored, the couple gets a reminder from an unexpected source that love truly can conquer all.

Today we have the blog tour for Deploy by Jamie Magee! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

cover

About Deploy:

The missing, the murder, the cover up, the abuse, all of it should’ve been enough to divide and test the love between Declan and Justice, but it was nothing compared to the hell they wreaked on each other’s hearts.

Fighting for what she loves is a war Justice cannot afford to lose…her Marine told her to engage and defend.

EXCERPT

Fear caused goose bumps to race across her skin. She felt herself flush, her heart race, tears well. She silently thought every prayer she could, and all but begged God himself to snatch her from this hell she was born into.

Just like all the times before, she had no idea how she’d gotten there, the shock of going from normalcy to this so often was something she had never gotten used to, and doubted she ever would.

When it was bad, she wished for death, for a way out. When it was good, she told herself it was never as bad as she thought, that her emotions made it out to be more than it was. She told herself every family fought, she told herself every father yelled and behind closed doors, everyone battled their own wars.

“Answer me!” he raged, moving to get in her face.

She heard him then, not her father. Declan. “You deploy any and all defense you need when you need it. Don’t question if it’s right or wrong. Don’t doubt your strength or your worth. No one lays a hand on you. You hear me?”

And somehow, she found the nerve.

 

 

About Jamie Magee:

Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.

About Tru Blue:

Imagine falling in love with a man, then finding out he was a killer…TRU BLUE is a sexy, dark stand-alone novel written in the same loving, raw, and emotional voice romance readers have come to love, and the deeply emotional literary prose women’s fiction readers have come to expect, from New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster.

He wore the skin of a killer, and bore the heart of a lover…

There’s nothing Truman Gritt won’t do to protect his family–Including spending years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. When he’s finally released, the life he knew is turned upside down by his mother’s overdose, and Truman steps in to raise the children she’s left behind. Truman’s hard, he’s secretive, and he’s trying to save a brother who’s even more broken than he is. He’s never needed help in his life, and when beautiful Gemma Wright tries to step in, he’s less than accepting. But Gemma has a way of slithering into people’s lives and eventually she pierces through his ironclad heart. When Truman‘s dark past collides with his future, his loyalties will be tested, and he’ll be faced with his toughest decision yet.

Exclusive Excerpt:

TRUMAN GRITT LOCKED the door to Whiskey Automotive and stepped into the stormy September night. Sheets of rain blurred his vision, instantly drenching his jeans and T-shirt. A slow smile crept across his face as he tipped his chin up, soaking in the shower of freedom. He made his way around the dark building and climbed the wooden stairs to the deck outside his apartment. He could have used the interior door, but after being behind bars for six long years, Truman took advantage of the small pleasures he’d missed out on, like determining his own schedule, deciding when to eat and drink, and standing in the f**king rain if he wanted to. He leaned on the rough wooden railing, ignoring the splinters of wood piercing his tattooed forearms, squinted against the wetness, and scanned the cars in the junkyard they used for parts—and he used to rid himself of frustrations. He rested his leather boot on the metal box where he kept his painting supplies. Truman didn’t have much—his old extended-cab truck, which his friend Bear Whiskey had held on to for him while he was in prison, this apartment, and a solid job, both of which were compliments of the Whiskey family. The only family he had anymore.

Emotions he didn’t want to deal with burned in his gut, causing his chest to constrict. He turned to go inside, hoping to outrun thoughts of his own f**ked-up family, whom he’d tried—and failed—to save. His cell phone rang with his brother’s ringtone, “A Beautiful Lie” by 30 Seconds to Mars.

“F**k,” he muttered, debating letting the call go to voicemail, but six months of silence from his brother was a long time. Rain pelleted his back as he pressed his palm to the door to steady himself. The ringing stopped, and he blew out a breath he hadn’t realized he’d trapped inside. The phone rang again, and he froze.

He’d just freed himself from the dredges of hell that he’d been thrown into in an effort to save his brother. He didn’t need to get wrapped up in whatever mess the drug-addicted fool had gotten himself into. The call went to voicemail, and Truman eyed the metal box containing his painting supplies. Breathing like he’d been in a fight, he wished he could paint the frustration out of his head. When the phone rang for the third time in as many minutes, the third time since he was released from prison six months ago, he reluctantly answered.

“Quincy.” He hated the way his brother’s name came out sounding like the enemy. Quincy had been just a kid when Truman went to prison. Heavy breathing filled the airwaves. The hairs on Truman’s forearms and neck stood on end. He knew fear when he heard it. He could practically taste it as he ground his teeth together.

“I need you,” his brother’s tortured voice implored.

Need me? Truman had hunted down his brother after he was released from prison, and when he’d finally found him, Quincy was so high on crack he was nearly incoherent—but it didn’t take much for f**k off to come through loud and clear. What Quincy needed was rehab, but Truman knew from his tone that wasn’t the point of the call.

Before he could respond, his brother croaked out, “It’s Mom. She’s really bad.”
