Unbreak This Heart by Betty Shreffler

Title: Unbreak This Heart
Author: Betty Shreffler
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone
Release Date: August 31, 2018
Blurb

Ever since that horrific night, I’d shut men completely out of my life.
I’d gone from the spunky, fun, Alex DeMarco to a broken woman terrified of
intimacy. Easing me back into dating, my best friend sets me up with kickboxing
lessons from my charming and perfectly sculpted instructor—Carter
Maxwell.   

Carter’s goal is to break through my emotional barrier and mold my
heart just like he molds my body, but trusting men is a battle I’m not ready
for. What’s worse is my ex fiancé, Todd Livingston—the man who tore my heart in
two—wants me back, and as much as I’d like to deny it, the feelings are still
there.
Both men want what I can’t give—my body and my love—and neither are
willing to give up the fight. But only one of them can unbreak this heart of
mine.

“So much more than a romance. There is family conflict, suspense, many kinds of emotions and lots of hot, explicit sex…” ★★★★- Goodreads review

Outside, the office has gone quiet, and I think about the hot mess we used to cause in this office. Back when we were younger. When I worried less. I can almost hear a collective sigh of relief from my staff as Ben and I talk in our normal voices—no shouting. No sounds of breakage. I blush slightly at the memory. What on earth were we thinking?

“What are you thinking about?” Ben asks softly, his face smoothing out, becoming less worried, more predatory. More intense.

“Nothing,” I mutter, dropping my eyes, my blush mounting.

He grins wickedly. “You’re thinking about how quiet everything went when I walked in.” He moves closer to me, placing a fingertip underneath my chin, forcing my eyes back up to his.

“And you’re remembering why.” His eyes don’t leave mine for a second, but I brush his hand away, flinching at the memory, ducking to escape those eyes.

“It’s in the past,” I say huskily, but he runs his fingers slowly along the edge of the desk. The edge I’ve clung to so many times, hopeless with desire, my legs buckling beneath me, his hands, his tongue…

“You’re thinking about it,” he whispers, moving behind me, his lips warm and soft against my neck, his hands reaching down and skimming across my hips, the warmth of his breath leaving my lips parted, my breathing shallow. His teeth find my earlobe and tug on it gently. A moan escapes my lips. Everything inside me wants to open my neck up to him, lean back into him, feel his hands wander leisurely across my body, my breasts. As though he has all the time in the world. As though I’m his.

But I pull away, trying to calm my breathing.

His arms fall to his side and I can feel him standing behind me. Sagging a little. No! I think immediately, my body desperate for his touch.

“I miss it, too,” he says, but he keeps his hands off me. Thank God is my next thought, my sensible brain kicking in. Because I don’t think I would have the resolve to move away twice.

Finally he moves to the chair opposite me, his eyes dark with lust, his jeans bulging appreciatively. I avert my eyes. 

It’s only been a few weeks, but it might as well have been twenty years, I want him so badly.

“It’s probably going to come out, Ada. Judging by that last letter.” He watches me carefully. “Will it really be that bad?”
Fen Wilde writes gritty romantic suspense novels exploring the darker elements in our lives.

She is a qualified social worker and works part-time as a mental health clinician for young people, and also as a private clinical consultant.

She is particularly interested in the complex things that drive us toward or keep us out of connection with each other: how fragile, how beautiful, how flawed we all are. 

Fen lives in Melbourne, Australia with her partner, two children, and Burmese cat. She is happiest with a project on her desk, some caramel slice in the fridge, and a great long list of things to do.

Irish by Giulia Lagomarsino ~ Book Tour

Title: Irish
Series: Reed Security Series
Author: Giulia Lagomarsino
Genre: Contemporary/Security Romance
Published: August 18, 2018

Irish is flat out fun to read, keeping me laughing along with swooning from start to finish!” ~ The Red Hatter Book Blog


Holy. Freaking. Amazing… The writing style of this book was amazing. I could not believe how sucked into the book I got.” ~Seraphim Book Reviews


HOLY HOTNESS BATMAN! This book was one of my top 5 books all year!” ~ Goodreads Review (Kelsee)

Derek “Irish” Cortell. Badass close protection agent. Sexy, panty-melting smile. Superhero? There’s something strange about the men at Reed Security. When socially awkward Claire Grant works up the nerve to talk to Derek in the grocery store, it opens up a whole new world for her in which her fantasies are becoming reality. Yes, she’s a librarian. Yes, it’s quite possible she’s immersed herself in too many books, but her eyes couldn’t possibly be deceiving her. Could they? Though Claire and Derek seem to have your typical romance, there is nothing typical about Derek or the people he works with, and soon Claire will find out just how super Derek really is.
   “Not a chance in hell. I happen to like my hands wrapped around your juicy ass.”
She reared back and looked at me in horror. “You think my ass is juicy?”
   “Uh, you’ve seen it, right? It’s big and perfect for me to grab onto.”
She struggled to get down and then pushed me away and stalked out of the water. “I can’t believe you just said my ass was big,” she yelled over her shoulder.
   I stood there a minute trying to figure out what the hell I said that was so wrong. She had the most gorgeous ass I’d ever seen. Didn’t all girls want a big ass like that Kardashian woman? I ran after her and gripped onto her arm, swinging her around to see me.
   “I like that your ass is big.”
   She burst into tears and I stood there with wide eyes, wondering what I was supposed to do. There was a reason I didn’t date women. I didn’t know what the hell to say to them on the best of days. Sex was easy. Please them and they’ll be screaming your name the whole night. This…this was totally foreign to me.
   “Having a big ass is a good thing. Men like to know they have something to grab onto. Besides, we want to know that you’re sturdy enough that we won’t break you when we fuck you.”
   She looked up at me through her tears and cried even harder. “So, now I’m sturdy? Like a tree? Next thing, you’re going to tell me I have big thighs.”
   “Big? No, definitely not big. They’re thick and muscular.”
   “Thick?” She spun away from me and ran for the beach blanket, grabbing her stuff and throwing it in her bag.
   “I like that you’re not a stick,” I said, trying to fix this before I totally fucked up the rest of our day. “If I wanted a model, I would go find one. But those women are all beauty and no brains.”

   She sniffed and wiped at her face. “Well, I’m glad to know that I’m thick like a tree, I have a big ass, and apparently I don’t have beauty, but I have brains.”

  
I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

Boss Undercover by J.S. Badham ~ Release Blitz

Title: Boss Undercover: Part 1
Series: Boss Undercover Series
Author: J.S. Badham
Genre: Romance
Release Date: August 28, 2018
Cover Designer: DerangedDoctorDesign
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Zack is the total package. He’s young, intelligent, gorgeous, and he’s also the CEO of a very successful construction company. No wonder men despise him while women throw themselves at his feet. 

When a friend insists Zack wouldn’t know a hard day’s work if it hit him in the face, he has no choice but to prove his friend wrong. But what Zack didn’t count on was getting distracted by the brown-eyed beauty from sales and marketing. 

Claire is feisty, confident, and has the potential to become a huge complication. Yet he can’t stop wanting her in ways which are completely inappropriate since…well, he’s her boss. 

But she doesn’t know that. Not yet, anyway. 
So, for now, he’ll keep his teeny-tiny secret and be her boss…undercover.

Oh, minus one for her. Bonus points for his apparently egotistical self. She did drop them, not because he startled her, because she heard him coming, but because Mr. Abs made a grand entrance. Literally. Oh, she would have paid her neighbours to have seen the mean pecs on him, the parallel train tracks chiselled to his chest, and that dangerous upside-down triangle leading into treachery. Oh, mother of pancakes. This was not good. “Can—” she cleared her throat, “can I help you?” Blinking, she looked anywhere but his chest. “The hot water. It’s different than the shower I had. 


Do you mind?” he said, faintly grinning. It was deliberate. She knew he had her trapped, for the time being, where he wanted her. Did she also mention he was wearing nothing but a white towel riding low on his hips? No? “I suppose,” she squeaked, turning down the gas on the hob before following him to the bathroom. He stepped aside as she headed in, switched on the shower, and turned the dial slowly to the left. “Here,” she said, “you just have to turn it this way. It should have already been on hot, but I guess I forgot to change it when I had a cold shower,” she explained, slowly pulling her arm back from behind the shower curtain. “Oh, I see.” “Cool.” His hand went for his towel, immediately ringing alarm bells. “Whoa, whoa!” she exclaimed, covering her eyes. “I’m still here, y’know?” “I know.” She pulled her hands away, raising her eyebrows. His towel was still intact. “Keep it hidden, pal,” she warned. “There’s two people under this roof, you know.” Zack was biting back so hard. “Won’t happen, again, Ma’am,” he apologised, smiling as she daggered her eyes at him. She left then, hot-headed and disappointed at her female hormones. If there was one thing she wanted to be good at, it was singling out the jerks. She had barely become acquainted with the man and already he was gonna give her the full Monty show.
Romance is just one thing J.S.Badham cannot get enough of! Whether it’s the typical cliché love-at-first-sight or I-hate-you-but-also-love-you compelling stories, they’re always close to her heart! Most will probably see it as trash literature but love is what makes the world go around! So, why not romance?
Her spark for writing began at the age of fifteen; a passion ignited thanks to her favourite author, Rachel Caine (Morganville Vampires) encouraging her that writing is the ability to be able to share inner stories and connect to the world.

J.S.Badham’s journey began on Wattpad, her path continues to grow, she continues to learn hoping that some day she’ll share a story that is inspiring.

And now, with a promise to keep, he was going to make her disappear again…
