Book Blast & Giveaway: Happily Never After by Bess George


HAPPILY NEVER AFTER
by Bess George

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Dallas ADA Kelsey Brackston survives a brutal attack but struggles with PTSD. When someone begins to stalk her, she relocates hoping for a new start. A person can’t be hurt if they can’t be found. Her logic seems flawed when someone tries to kill her—again.

This could be Bode Taggert’s last chance at being a cop after crawling out of a bottle. Focused on the job, he avoids personal commitments. Something within him resonates with the lady ADA. Maybe it’s her desire to move forward after a life altering event. Or not being able to move forward no matter how hard you try.

Despite his good intentions, Bode falls for the sexy lawyer. While he and the police concentrate on arresting her stalker, Kelsey vanishes. With his career—and heart—on the line, Bode will stop at nothing to find her. But will their newfound faith in one another be enough to save the day? Or will their inner demons destroy them both?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:

The corners of her mouth twitched. “Okay, I’m impressed. What else do you do besides being super cop and community activist?”

A devilish smile made a shiver run down her back. “Well, lately I’ve been chasing a stubborn little gal who won’t let me catch her.”

She grunted. “You haven’t been chasing very hard.”

His eyes twinkled. “Are you complaining?”

“Hardly. I’m just stating the facts.”

“Well, the fact is, after our last meeting I got the idea you needed a little space from me trying to woo you.”

She choked on a swallow of wine. “Woo, me? What is that even supposed to mean?”

His hand patted her back making sure she could breathe. “You know, date you. I seem to have a knack for making you mad, so I decided to back off and give you some time to miss me. Did you?”

The Lady

The fair Lady Faye has always played the role allotted her. Yet the marriage her family wanted only brought her years of abuse and heartache.

The Warrior

After years of servitude as a warrior for King and Country, Gregory is now free to pursue his own path: to serve God by becoming a monk. The only thing stopping him is Faye. Gregory has loved Faye since the moment he saw her. But their love was not meant to be. How can he serve God when his heart longs for her? He can neither forsake God nor the woman he loves.

The Promise

When Faye's son is kidnapped, Gregory answers her family's call for help, only to find that even in the most dangerous of circumstances, neither can fight their forbidden attraction. An attraction that now burns brighter than ever before. And it is only a matter of time until it consumes them both.

My Review

It's a brillant  and captivating Medieval novel with  twists, action, adventure and lots of romance.
Gregory is trying to figure out whether to become a monk is his true path. He is deeply in love with Lady Faye and it's hard for him to choose between his love for God and that for the woman, especially now that she is free. When Faye's son is kidnapped by his father, Gregory ran to her aid and together they will try to recover him. It will be hard for Gregory to honor his religious commitment.
I really enjoyed this book for several reasons, the first of which is the setting. I love medieval castles, knights, medieval clothes and style of life. I liked all of the characters. Faye was able to rise to a violent husband and escape to a hellish life. She's a loving mother and willing to do anything to save his sons. Gregory is a true knight, a man of honor and loyal. 
It's the second book of Sir Arthur's Legacy Series, can be read as a stand alone: ​​I only had a few difficulties at the beginning to make history in but later everything became clear and flowed perfectly. I hope  to read soon  the first book about the history of Beatrice.
This book was amazing and I loved every page. It's fast paced, very well written, sweet and engaging.
I received an advance reader edition of this book from Publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

A hot Canadian engineer, whose marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met. Together they’ve made homes in seven different cities across three different continents (and back again once or twice).

She also moonlights as a wife and mother.She currently lives in Draper, Utah, with her teenage daughters, two Golden Retrievers and aforementioned husband. Part footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah’s restless heart is most content when reading or writing books.

DEAL BREAKERS
by Laura Lee

BLURB:

How were they supposed to know that one night would change everything?

Devyn has life all mapped out. She just needs to accomplish one more thing before graduating college and becoming a full-fledged adult—lose her virginity. And who better to assist her than her best friend, Riley?

Riley is the self-proclaimed king of fling. His college years have been filled with meaningless hookups until the one night that ruined him for all other women. The one night he spends with his best friend, Devyn. Right before he screws it all up.

Balls to the wall, baby!

Now five years later, Riley is determined to atone for his mistakes and prove that he can be the man that Devyn deserves. Little does he know that Devyn’s been keeping a secret from him all these years. A big secret. Now he has to figure out how to win back the only girl he’s ever loved while navigating the pitfalls of her unexpected revelation.

Deal Breakers is filled with lots of laughs, a sexy romance, and an overflowing swear jar.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Review:

It 's a read fast and fresh, romantic and fun, is addictive and a total page turner, There was humor, romance, friendships, lots of chemistry. 
Riley is attracted to Devyn from the moment he sees her for the first time but she just wants to be her friend. Riley is content with her friendshisp throughout the whole college. Shortly before graduation Devyn asks for help from Riley: she doesn't want leaving college as a virgin. Riley can't wait to fulfill her wish. Devyn  confesses she loves him and he acts like a fool. For five long years they have not spoken. Now Riley wants to try again but will still have time?
The story was light and easy to read with a good plot although a little predictable, appealing characters, this was a very enjoyable read. It is the perfect read for the summer.
I received an advance reader edition of this book from the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

“Uh oh,” Brody says. “I know that look. Tell me about her.”

I look up. “What?”

He laughs. “You’re hung up on a chick.”

I sigh. “Is it that obvious?”

He smiles. “Ah, I get it, brother. You’ve been touched by the Magic Pussy.”

“The magic what?”

“The Magic Pussy,” he repeats. “Pussy that is so good you can never get enough and it’s impossible to forget. An Urban Legend in my opinion, but you sure do have all the pathetic signs.”

“Thanks,” I grumble.

A Wounded Temptress

Angelina Rugiero loved Lorenzo Delgado with a budding woman’s passion, until he broke her heart. Now she has the life she always dreamed of, or so she thought.

  A Determined Man

Lorenzo has loved Angel for years. He knew that he had to wait for her to grow up. With one thoughtless act on the night of her eighteenth birthday, he destroyed all hopes of a future, leaving him devastated….and determined to make things right.

A Love That Can’t Be Denied

 As Angel goes home to Miami one last time, Lorenzo realizes this is his opportunity to prove his love. Can they have the life they’d always wanted together, or will a man bent on revenge destroy their happily ever after before it begins?

Excerpt
“Is there anyone else who wants to step up as my partner? Going once, going twice, and sold to the…” Angel stopped. “Sorry, boys, this one’s mine,” Lorenzo said, speaking into the microphone and wrapping his arm around her waist as he tossed the mic back. The DJ immediately began playing a latin number. His mother always said he’d danced in the womb for nine months, and came out ready to go. Lorenzo could believe it, too. He loved music, the way the beat pounded through the room making people move with it. To him, dancing was like making love to a beautiful woman. All you had to do was listen to the music, whether it was a fast song with instruments, or a sweet woman’s voice. You only had to move your body and guide them with a strong hand. Angelina danced her body close to his as soon as the song started, and then moved away. Her breasts scorched him through the thin material of his designer shirt. Her hand fit inside his larger one, her head barely reached his shoulders even in her extremely tall, fuck me heels. There were no other words for the things on her feet. She wouldn’t meet his eyes, just looked over his shoulder, giving him a blank smile while pretending to get into the right position. He yanked her body flush with his, feeling all her soft parts fit his harder planes, making him even more aware of their differences. Moving them farther across the dance floor, away from prying eyes, he led them in a dance so sensual, so erotic, his pants became too tight. Her breathing was labored and her skin looked flushed. He was glad to not be the only one affected. Hard to believe he’d dreamed of dancing with her on that fateful night five years ago. Even harder to believe was the reality was so much better than the dream. Only now he didn’t feel like a pervert. She was not his sister, nor was she a child anymore. When her eyes still avoided his, he exerted more pressure on her back. Their bodies touched and stayed connected. With his other hand, he tilted her chin up, forcing her to meet his eyes or close her own. Either way, she had to acknowledge him. Her body trembled in his embrace, not in fear he was sure. Turning them around, he inserted his leg between her thighs, and subtly rubbed back and forth. His palm slid down her back, fingers curving to fit her rear, while his thumb rested at the top of her shorts, stroking the silky skin beneath the tank. Her pulse visibly jerked at his touch. She licked her lips, like her mouth had gone dry. His dark eyes finally connected with her emerald green irises and held, her pupils dilated, glowing like tiny chips of green fire. His own flared with desire and carnal heat. Lorenzo wanted her more than he’d ever wanted another, and that was saying a lot. Their bodies undulated, mimicking what he’d like to do with her, sans clothes. Her moves matched his, and upped him every time. With her face still held in his hand, he examined every inch of her beautiful features, committing them to memory. After what seemed like an eternity of scrutiny, he dipped his head, covered her shiny mouth with his and kissed her passionately. His tongue slipped inside her mouth, tasting, savoring the sweetness and heat within. Angelina shuddered, and heat exploded in his groin, coursing through his blood. His tongue licked the inside of her lower lip, teeth nipped at the corner of her mouth and he felt her surrender. He drew her tongue into his mouth, sucking the tip, the suction tight and rhythmic, reminding him of sex. He pictured his body thrusting into hers, her back arched, hips tilted, her body fitted to his. The vision so erotic he began to sweat, and still he kissed her. When the song ended, he relinquished his hold on her face, his knee still parting her thighs, pressing up against her flesh. She was hot, surely wet, and so responsive. He gazed down into her green orbs for a long moment, stroking her flushed cheek with the back of his hand, feeling the warmth of her skin. “I plan to claim what’s mine,” he stated simply. For a moment, she allowed her body to relax into him. He savored the feel of her soft, toned body. And then she withdrew. Even more shocking was the sense of loss he felt, his heart ached, he wanted more, needed more. He let her move back, saw her inhale, exhale, and inhale again. Her breath escaped in a whoosh of air, hitting his chest with the warm air. “I’m not a prize to be had, Lorenzo. You’d do best to remember that.” “That’s where you’re wrong, baby.” She narrowed her eyes like she was picturing him in a Chinese torture chamber. He thought of many ways they could both torment the other, and all of them involved a naked Angel, and him equally naked. She turned on her heels, ass swaying so enticingly in the snug leather he whistled. Her long black hair swung around, followed by an angry look directed at him. With short, loud stomps, Angel marched back to where he stood. He contained the grin his lips wanted to do. Sparring with the little spitfire verbally, made him hotter than ever. miamiinfernoteaser


Elle Boon
Author Bio I’m a wife and mother who is a retired stay at home mom of 2. I say retired because my youngest is 14 and my oldest is 20. When my baby went to school, reading saved my sanity, and then the same year he started school, I was diagnosed with Cancer, again reading saved my sanity. When I recovered and realized how quickly life could change, I made a bucket list. The number one thing was to live. Check. On top of that list was to become a published author. Check. Eight years later I have accomplished that goal and several others. I live in the Midwest, but I”m a southern girl with only a slight twang who says y’all quite frequently, and am known to say “Bless Your Heart” A LOT. If you know what that means, you do not want to be the one I say that to, lol. I cuss worse than if a trucker and a sailor were put together, but I do it with class *WEG*. I write what I love to read, erotic romance. My books are definitely full of lots of story, but I leave nothing to the imagination in or out of the bedroom. My hope is that after readers have read one of my stories, they fall in love with the characters as much as I have. The best part of my new journey is that I get to create new worlds, and have all kinds of stories in my head just waiting to be written. I truly love to hear from readers. You can find me on Twitter, Facebook or my webside, but I’m on Facebook ALL the time, so find me. I’d love to hear from you

Riley Bancroft grew up in the heart of Texas. Ever since she was little she favored stories on the darker side, not just supernatural, but psychological as well. She penned her first erotic poems in college, but the pursuit of her writing career began when she wrote a short story based on the intimate scene missing in Twilight, to share with her friends. They encouraged her to write her own novel. And so, she did.

SYNOPSIS

Some people collect art, others collect trouble. Marion Spicer spends her days examining auction catalogues and searching for stolen works of art. She is a top-notch investigator when it comes to eighteenth-century art. But for her it’s just a job and her life is well ordered. All this changes when she inherits a huge and very prestigious collection of pre-Columbian art from a father she never knew. There are conditions attached: she must first find three priceless statues. That is when her troubles begin. Her father’s death sparked much greed, and Marion finds herself facing the merciless microcosm of Paris art auctions and galleries, with its sharks, schemes, fences, traps, scams, and attacks. Her quest draws her into a world where people will kill for a love of beauty.

My Review

It 's an interesting, compelling and  realistic mystery set in the world of art. It's well written and the pages fly by effortlessly. I could only put it down with great difficulty, I wanted to see what happened next!
Marion has always believed that her father had died when she was very small. Instead she discovers that he only assumed another identity and had lived many years away from his family. Now he has bequeathed to her his collection of pre-Columbian art, with really fabulous and valuable pieces. But she can only have under certain conditions. She must be able to find three pieces really special. With the help of some friends she will venture looking for these missing sculptures.
An excellent start to a new mystery series, it's easy to read with a compelling mystery, with a lot of suspense and twists, a great plot and believable characters.
This is my first time reading a book by this author, and I can say with complete certainty that it will not be my last! It is understandable from the first page that she is a real expert on the subject, her knowledge has made the story really believable.
I recommend it to anyone who loves mystery, art and France
I received an advance reader edition of this book for the purpose of providing an honest review.
