BLOG & REVIEW TOUR. FREEING HER BY A. M. HARGROVE @Amhargrove1





Freeing Her Synopsis:

• This novel contains mature content and it not intended for younger readers.
This is the beginning of a story... the story of two people who were meant to be together. Why? Because unknown to them, they shared terrifying pasts and the cruel circumstances of their births doomed both of them to a life of hell.
Two strangers ... one night ... one accidental meeting that changed their lives forever.
Gabriella Martinelli, Manhattan psychiatrist had only one goal in life—to help abuse victims avoid the horrors she’d experienced herself. She worked late, volunteered, and donated her services to anyone who needed them. Life was good ... until her nightmare resurfaced. He found her, and began stalking her, and she knew he wouldn’t stop until he destroyed every ragged piece of her.
Kolson Hart, Manhattan’s most eligible bachelor, was ruled by his dark past. He liked control, from the boardroom to the bedroom and didn’t care to be involved with someone whose life was just as screwed up as his was. But one look at Gabriella short-circuited everything. Want ... desire ... need ... will sometimes drive a man to do things he swore he never would.
He freed her from a life of fear ... When he couldn’t even save himself.

REVIEW

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received an arc in exchange for an honest review

This book is a dark, suspense, romance read, it has everything that you need for a great read.

We have Gabrielle who has a dark past and follow her throughout this book.

We also have Kolson who also has a dark past but after reading this book I find out that I have to wait for the next book to find out about him.

This is really a good read and is well written. I enjoyed it



EXCERPT


“Tell me, Gabriella.”
“Please.”
“I’ll be generous with you if you tell me.”
She opened her eyes. His full lips were shiny from where he’d been torturing her nipples. If only her hands weren’t trapped in her shirt, she’d pull him closer so she could kiss him. His tongue poked out and ran across his lower lip right before he dragged his teeth over it. Then he took her lip into his mouth and sucked on it. Hard. She knew it might be swollen, maybe even bruised, but she didn’t care. That tiny action sent her juices flowing, even more than they already were.
“You liked that, didn’t you?”
She closed her eyes, unwilling to face him.
“Gabriella. Tell me.”
When she didn’t say anything, he resumed the motion of his fingers on her clit. Then he slid one inside of her and she tensed up. Was itwrong that it felt so good? She wasn’t exactly a willing partner, but her body thought otherwise.
“Are you going to fuck me?”
“No. Not now. But I’m going to make you come all over my hand. And you’re going to beg me to do it. Now, tell me what I want to know, Gabriella.”
Why was this so important to him?
His fingers stopped wreaking havoc on her sex, and she whimpered. But his mouth moved to her ear and she felt his warm breath when he whispered to her, “I’m waiting.” Then his teeth sank into the velvety flesh of her lobe and he tugged on it as he sucked.
Gabby never had so many different sensations assailing her at once. She wanted to touch him so badly, her fingers tingling with need. She groaned as his mouth bit her neck.
Kolson looked at the image Gabby made. “Damn, you’re one hot lovely piece of sex, all spread out against the wall. But resistant as steel too. To hell with this.” Dropping to one knee, he jerked her shorts to her ankles and buried his face between her legs. The action took Gabby completely by surprise. Shock and then pure electric heat raced from her core straight through her stomach and down to the arches of her feet. She wanted to pull away, wanted to squeeze her thighs together, but she couldn’t. Her blood roared through her veins and it wasn’t long before she felt her muscles clenching, an orgasm fast approaching. She angled her pelvis toward him but he lifted his head and asked, “What did he do to you, Gabriella?”
“No, don’t stop!”
“Gabriella,” his voice urged her on.
“Please, don’t stop.”
“I’ll lick and suck your pussy for hours, if you tell me what he did to you. Just say the words, Gabriella.”
“I’ll never tell you.”
“Oh, you will.” He rose to his feet, rubbing himself on her body along the way. She looked at him and could see the outline of his erection. He followed her gaze and looked down at himself and then back up at her. “It’s all yours. If you tell me.”
“No,” she whimpered.
He stared at her thoughtfully and placed his hand around her upper arm. He dragged her across the room as she tripped behind him, kicking the shorts out of her way as they went. She tried to break free of his grasp, but her arms were still trapped in the shirt.
“What are you doing?”
He didn’t answer as he moved, dragging her behind him through his bedroom and into his bathroom. He led her straight to the shower and she asked herself what the hell he was doing when he began to strip. When he stood before her naked, her mind spun with the idea that no architect, no engineer could ever have designed something so perfect, with those dips and ridges, planes and symmetry. The saliva pooled in her mouth as she gawked at him. He wasn’t just a pretty face. His body was beautiful. Profoundly.
His pecs and abs were so lovely, her trapped fingers twitched as she imagined how his smooth firm skin would feel beneath their tips. She groaned loudly as she dreamed what it would be like to touch him,where her hands would travel. A glint of silver caught her eye and she realized he had one nipple pierced. Oh, how she wanted to put her lips around it. She wanted to flick her tongue across the ring only to hear him moan. Ink decorated areas of his torso, but her eyes didn’t linger for long. They wandered straight down to what was between his legs, fully erect and pointing toward the ceiling. She wanted to touch it, to stroke it and put her mouth on it.
“Are you going to tell me now?”
She wanted to lick him from head to toe, like a giant Popsicle. A cherry Popsicledripping in the summer heat. She wanted to slide him inside of her. And ride him. Hard.
“Gabriella?”
God, he was unbelievable. The only men she’d ever seen naked or half-naked (other than patients when she was in medical school) were Danny and then Mitch, her brief college boyfriend. And they hadn’t looked anything like this.
Kolson thought Gabriella must be in a trance because she wasn’t responding. So he took matters into his own hands. He framed her face with his hands and kissed her, pushing his tongue past her slightly parted lips. She responded feverishly; she rubbed her body against his, and tried to wrap her leg around his.



AM Hargrove Bio:
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had ├╝ber quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what lap top out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly again).
So began A. M. Hargrove's career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer. Her books include Kissing Fire, Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge, the series the Guardians of Vesturon (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, Beginnings and reEmergent), Dark Waltz, Tragically Flawed, Tragic Desires, and Exquisite Betrayal.
Other than being in love with being in love, she loves chocolate, ice cream and coffee and is positive they should be added as part of the USDA food groups.
(If you're wondering, it didn't happen EXACTLY that way, but….)
You can also find her on Goodreads as Emerson St. Clair. Her novella series, Dirty Nights, is available and those are a little dark, a little erotic and a lot sexy!

COVER REVEAL. CAPTURED LOVE BY JULIANA HAYGERT. @Juliana_Haygert




Captured Love by Juliana Haygert 
Publication date: November 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:

Warning: strong language, sex scenes
Word count: ~70,000

It’s been four years since twenty-year-old Jessica Hayes has been home, but when she discovers her father is dying, she must return to her hometown in South Carolina and face her past. Jessica thought patching up her relationship with her father would be her biggest challenge, but when she runs into Ryan Dawson—the catalyst of all her problems—she wonders if coming home was a mistake.

Ryan knows he screwed up. Hell, he paid the price…with interest. But when he runs into his best friend’s little sister, Jessica, he’s reminded that his debt will never truly be paid. He may have turned his life around, but he can’t undo the damage. So, he does what he should have done all those years ago. He stays away from Jessica, and all the other personal demons that still haunt him.

Jessica thought she wanted nothing to with Ryan, but something is different about him and she needs to know why. When she discovers the truth behind his change, she puts her troubles aside and tries to help him. But is putting her heart back in the line of fire worth disrupting her stable life back in Ohio, or will the past repeat itself, leaving her brokenhearted once again?

  Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00051] 


  BLACK COLLAR EMPIRE BLURB: 

After two years away, Seth Morgan has returned to New York, desperate to honor his father’s dying wish for a unified family. But the heir’s welcome is sadly lacking: his family’s criminal empire is divided, the woman he loves hates him, and his brother Caleb has become a cold stranger. When a brotherly spat becomes a vicious misunderstanding that ends with Caleb dead, Seth is left reeling, and unsure who to trust. Emma Morgan grew up while her closest cousin was away. She’s been sheltered her entire life from the realities of their family—something Seth has every intention of changing upon his return. But not everyone in the syndicate is happy to have Seth home, and there are secrets surrounding Caleb’s murder. The deeper Seth and Emma dig, the clearer it becomes that not everyone shares their dream for the Morgan Syndicate, and not everyone wants the heir to ascend.

Blurb

They say men like a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom. I never knew the sentiment was reciprocal. Until I met Jax Knight. A gentleman in public, a commanding, dirty talking rogue in the bedroom.

Daughter of legendary fighter “The Saint,” Lily St. Claire knows firsthand how fighters can be. As the owner of a chain of MMA gyms, she’s no stranger to aggressive, dominating, and possessive men. That’s why she’s always kept her distance. But the day Jax Knight walks through her door she’s captivated by his charm. Stunningly handsome, well mannered, Ivy League educated, and confident, he shatters all the preconceived notions she’d come to think were true about men who trained to fight.

But falling for someone so soon after her breakup wasn’t something she’d planned on. And definitely not something her ex plans to allow

Elle has a good life. A job she loves, a great apartment, and the guy she's been dating for more than two years is a catch and a half. But it's boring...and she strives to keep it that way. Too many emotions are dangerous. Her own past is living proof of what can happen when you lose control.

Then Nico walks into Elle's office and everything changes...for both of them. But what can the tattooed, hard-bodied MMA fighter and the beautiful and always steady attorney have in common? A lot more than they bargained for.

Meet Liv Michaels

It may have been seven years, but I'd know him anywhere. Sure, he's grown, filled out in all the right places, but his captivating blue eyes and cocky grin are exactly the way I remember. Even though I'd much rather forget.

Liv Michaels is almost there. She's smart, determined and weeks away from landing the job she's dreamed about for years. Time healed old wounds, even her broken heart from the devastation of being crushed by her first love.

Meet Vince Stone

Women love a fighter, especially a good one. Lucky for me, I'm damn good. But there's one woman that isn't interested. Not again, anyway.

Vince 'The Invincible' Stone is every woman's fantasy...strong, sexy, confident and completely in control. Growing up surrounded by chaos, he's learned never to get too attached. Love will drag you down. He adores women, treats them well, puts their own needs before his own...for the night anyway. With the biggest fight of his life coming up, his focus should be on training.

When fate brings Vince & Liv back together again, there's no denying the chemistry is still there. But can Vince erase the old scars their past left behind? Or will Liv hurt him instead?
