EXCERPT:

As I approach his house, I see his Jeep parked in the drive, the hood up, and a tight, jean-clad ass bent over the side.

Okay, he’s definitely home.

I tentatively wander around the other side of the Jeep and lean against the side, looking at the engine. He hasn’t noticed that I’m here yet, and I’m not even sure how he’ll react to seeing me here, but I can’t seem to stay away. His dark head is bent low, his arms buried in the engine, tinkering with something. His arms are bare as he’s pulled off his T-shirt, which is draped over the windshield. A thin sheen of sweat covers his shoulders and back, and his entire sleeve tattoo, which runs from just above his wrist all the way up to the top of his right shoulder, is on full display, making my girlie parts all tingle and come to life.

Holy Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.

He’s so fucking toned it’s crazy. Jeez, his muscles bunch and stretch as he pulls on the wrench in his hand.

“Come on, you motherfucker,” he mutters. I have to bite my lips to keep from laughing out loud.

“So, what seems to be the problem?” I finally ask when he doesn’t notice me, keeping my eyes trained on the engine when his head whips up to look at me. I slowly lift my eyes to his and grin.

“I didn’t hear your car,” he murmurs with a smile.

“I walked.” I shrug and look back down into the bowels of his Jeep. “What’s wrong with your car?”

“You walked from your house?” he asks incredulously.

“No.” I shake my head and chuckle. “From Sips. I had coffee with Cara this morning.”

He stands up straight and leans his palms on the side of the Jeep, watching me. My eyes immediately fall to one drop of sweat slowly making its way down his hard chest.

“You had coffee with Cara?” He smiles.

“Yeah.” I shrug shyly. “I’m sorry to just stop by like this. I was out for a walk and just sort of found myself here.” I feel my cheeks heat and I back away, but he shakes his head and smiles widely.

“I’m glad you came by.” He raises his brows as I continue to stare.

I shake my head and raise my eyes to his, then bust out laughing.

“Why are you laughing?” he asks with a wide grin.

“Because I don’t think I’ve ever seen you without a shirt. I didn’t realize the tats went all the way up your arm. Who would have thought that under it all you’re just a bad boy?”

His eyes flash with heat as he narrows them on my face, watching me. He pulls a rag out of his back pocket and begins wiping off his hands, but his gray eyes stay on mine. Did I offend him?

“I’m not such a bad boy. Looks can be deceiving, Lauren.” He smirks as he lowers the hood on his Jeep. “But from the look of you right now, you don’t seem to mind the tats.”

“I don’t mind.” I shrug nonchalantly and try to ignore the way my heart picks up speed as he slowly saunters around the hood of the vehicle.

“Do you have any tats?”

“Yeah.”

His eyes widen in surprise and then rake over me from head to toe.

“Where?”

I grin, enjoying this flirtatious banter. “Here and there.”

“I have ways of making people talk, you know.”

“Bright lights and rubber hoses?” I ask with a raised brow.

He tosses his head back and laughs, an all-out belly laugh. “I’m not a cop,” he smirks.

“You might get to see them. Someday.”

He closes the gap between us and kisses me gently on the forehead, not touching me anywhere else.

“I hope someday comes sooner rather than later,” he whispers before pulling back and smiling softly down at me. “I would hug you, but I’m dirty.”

I wave him off, as if it’s no biggie, although I don’t mind so much that he’s a bit dirty and sweaty. “What were you doing?” I gesture to the car.

“Changing the oil.”

“There are places you can go,” I inform him with a perfectly straight face, “where you pull into this big garage, and then you leave your car and go into this small room with five-year-old magazines and stale coffee, and the people there will change your oil for you.”

“Or, smart-ass, I can do it myself in my own driveway.”

“Suit yourself.” I shrug.

“Did you sleep okay on the couch?” he asks, changing the subject.

“Yeah, actually, I did. But I could always sleep just about anywhere.”

“Hence the chaise in your office.” He chuckles.

I nod and stuff my hands in my pockets. “I’m sorry that I interrupted your morning. I was just out for a walk and found myself here.”

“I’m glad you did.” He scratches his stomach, and my eyes follow the movement. His abs are just delicious. For being so dark haired, he has little hair on his chest and stomach, but a light trail of hair falls from his navel and disappears into his jeans. He’s also sporting a V in the muscles on his hips that the heroes in my novels would covet.

“Lo?” he asks with a wide grin.

“Yeah?” I drag my eyes up to his again.

“I lost you for a second.”

I blink rapidly and feel heat fill my cheeks. Jesus, get a grip! You’ve seen hot men before, Lauren. “Sorry, my mind wandered.”

SUGAR ON THE EDGE by Sawyer Bennett **5 STAR REVIEW**

SUGAR ON THE EDGE

BY USA Today Best-selling Author Sawyer Bennett

 

 Sensual couple

Last Call, #3

Adult Contemporary Romance

 

 

He’s utterly alone…

Tortured and existing in a dark spiral of despair, bestselling British author, Gavin Cooke, has come to the Outer Banks of North Carolina to escape the seedy lifestyle he had been living in London and in a desperate attempt to regain his writing focus. He’s twisted, bitter and angry at the world. He’s a loner… needing not a single thing other than his Scotch and a laptop upon which he can bang out his next erotic, dark thriller.

 

She’s running in place and getting nowhere…

Savannah Shepherd’s life is falling apart. Her dream of being a wildlife photographer seems a distant memory and she’s barely able to make ends meet. Driving herself forward with no clear goals apparent, she’s about ready to pack up her bags and head home with her tail between her legs.

 

Two unlikely lovers…

He’s raw, forceful and a dirty talker. She’s a flowers and romance type of girl. Yet within each other, they find a mutual craving that can only be satisfied by giving in to their desires for one another.

Lust turns into something more… something they were not looking for but tentatively accept. Will it be enough to push them past the obstacles of Gavin’s bitter past?

 

*SUGAR ON THE EDGE can be read as a stand-alone*

Warning…this book is HOT!! I LOVED Gavin’s dirty mouth!! Their chemistry of “sweet” and “filthy” was absolutely perfect!  I really identified with Savannah, which made me get into this book even more than the others.  Getting to catch up with the other characters from books 1 & 2 was an added bonus! I highly recommend this entire series and I cannot WAIT for the next book!

FALLING FOR FATE by Caisey Quinn **Cover Reveal**

The second book in the Second Chance series by Caisey Quinn has a cover!
While the series is made up of standalone novels featuring different couples, it does center around a location: The Second Chance Ranch, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility owned by Trace Corbin and Gretchen Gibson from the Kylie Ryans series. Here’s what Caisey had to say about the series!
Caisey: I really love writing this series because with each new novel I get a new story to build around the ranch. The overlap between characters in each book is a lot of fun for me, even though readers don’t always catch them. It’s almost like a hidden treasure. For instance, Fate’s mom appears briefly in Van’s story (Last Second Chance), but as the books are released approximately 3-4 months apart, not everyone remembers those details. It’s such a treat for me knowing that they’re in there!
Readers have asked if they will see Trace and Kylie in this series and they will! Trace will pop in from time to time and then towards the end of the series they’ll both attend a celebratory dinner at the Ranch.
While Last Second Chance was pretty hot, with tortured soul musician Van Ransom, Falling for Fate is a bit on the sweeter side. Though y’all know me, there will still be plenty of steam! Dean and Fate have a chance encounter and then meet again unexpectedly. While they’re both young professionals, having very different relationship backgrounds and experiences leaves them a bit out of their league when it comes to one another.
I am so in love with this cover because my characters meet on the beach and I asked the designer (Regina Wamba of Mae I Design) to give it an ocean water feel. She did such a wonderful job! I hope y’all like it as much as I do!
 
MORE ABOUT FALLING FOR FATE
Fate Buchanan just wants to escape the constraints of her old life. After checking her mother into rehab and catching her fiancé with her Maid of Honor the night before their wedding, she ran. Angry and hurt, she’s aching to do something reckless

Dean Maxwell is having one last summer of freedom before taking over his family’s multi-billion dollar medical conglomerate. When he sees a beautiful woman running down the beach alone after dark he knows it’s not safe. So he does something impulsive

When their paths cross unexpectedly after a night of unbridled passion, neither of them can forget the memory of the affair they shared. What began as one night is about to become a whole lot more
 
*Note: While part of the Second Chance series, this novel stands alone.

DEEP SURRENDERING (Episode 5) by Chelsea M. Cameron – *REVIEW and GIVEAWAY*

Deep Surrendering (Episode 5) by Chelsea M. Cameron

 

DeepSurrendering5

 

BOOK SUMMARY:

 

With thousands of miles separating them, will Fin and Marisol be able to keep their relationship alive? Or will the distance finally come between them?

MY TAKE:

 

This was the hardest episode for me.  The long distance relationship is something I’ve done personally and it was so hard for me, therefore I knew it was going to be rough for Marisol.  Also, this episode had the biggest cliffhanger yet at the end that is making me really wish episode 6 would hurry and get here! I have to know what happens! I highly recommend Deep Surrendering!!

Deep Surrendering (Episode 4) by Chelsea M. Cameron

DS_Episode4

BOOK SUMMARY:

 

For the first time since their relationship started, Fin and Marisol are on different pages in the bedroom, but Marisol is determined to make their last few days together count. Each moment is precious, but each shreds her fragile heart a little more. Can they get back on track and figure out a way to stay together even with thousands of miles between them?

 

EXCERPT #4

“Do you have any ice cream?” I asked, and that definitely got his attention. I remembered our first date when we’d eaten ice cream and how he laughed when it ran down his arm.

“Ice cream?”

“Yes. I always find talking about things you don’t want to talk about is easier with ice cream. Come on.” I looped my arm with his and dragged him to the kitchen.

“Ice cream isn’t going to fix this situation.”

“Shh,” I said, putting my finger to his lips. “Ice cream first.”

MY TAKE:

 

 This episode is my favorite so far! Fin and Marisol made so much progress in this one and you really got to see them both relax and just enjoy their time together.  I knew the end was coming, but it was still so sad.  I hate long distance relationships and I felt the heartache in my chest as Fin left for the last time.  I cannot wait for the next episode to find out what happens! If you haven’t started Deep Surrendering yet, do it now! Highly Recommend!

Deep Surrendering (Episode 3) by Chelsea M. Cameron

21840904

BOOK SUMMARY:

 

 

Marisol’s days with Fin are dwindling and they still haven’t discussed where they stand, and that’s not the only thing Marisol doesn’t know about him. They’ve continued to trade secrets for sex, but when Fin reveals one particularly traumatic secret, will Marisol be able to handle it? Or is it better call it quits before she falls even deeper?

 MY TAKE:

 

I didn’t want this episode to end! I was like “NOOOOOOO!!!” Cannot wait for the next one! I love how Fin is starting to really let Marisol in, and seeing their relationship blossom is awesome.  I just hope she doesn’t go running once all the secrets are out.  I’m really hoping upon all hopes that they get their Happily Ever After! I HIGHLY recommend!

Deep Surrendering (Episode 2) by Chelsea M. Cameron

DeepSurrenderingEP2

 

BOOK SUMMARY: 

 

When Fin ran out on Marisol, leaving her naked on her couch, she swore she was done with him. There was no way she would forgive him, let alone see him again. But fate, or something else, had different ideas, and she ran into him again the very next day.

Instead of hating his guts and wanting him to die, Marisol finds that’s she’s still attracted to Fin. She just can’t get him out of her system. Maybe if they had one night together? Just one night and she could get over him. But will that be enough?

MY TAKE:

 
 
Oh my goodness the storyline is getting REALLY good! I love these short episodes! I can read them in one sitting easily and feel like I really got a good story.  I didn’t know how it was going to go since at the end of the first episode, Fin left Marisol for a second time! I was glad to see them get through it and move on.  I’m wondering what’s in story for the characters! Cannot wait for the next episode! I highly recommend!

Deep Surrendering (Episode 1) by Chelsea M. Cameron

DS1_Cover 

BOOK SUMMARY:

 

She’s all about rules. He lives by none but his own. When these two meet, the results could be disastrous.

When Marisol Everly’s friend Rory sets her up with Fin Herald, Marisol doesn’t expect that it will amount to anything, but that was before she saw Fin’s searing blue eyes and mischievous smile. Not to mention, he seems absolutely fascinated by her mundane life. He’s everything that a girl could want, but there’s something else that ripples under the surface of his flirty behavior. Something darker. Something that fascinates Marisol, but scares her at the same time. Is she willing to risk falling into an abyss she might not get out of?

MY TAKE:

 

 This book pulled me in from the first page and I could not put it down until I had read every single page.  The chemistry between Marisol and Fin was  flaming hot!  I loved the back and forth between them.  I honestly don’t know what is going to happen next, but I cannot wait for the next episode to release! I highly recommend!
