BLURB
Tasha’s not looking for love, but she doesn’t mind just looking… and maybe a little fantasizing. Her two best friends and weekend AD& D buddies, Seth and Ryan, are the perfect guest stars in her fantasies. When a late night gaming session with the three goes from silly to verbally scorching in an instant, Tasha wonders if her imagination is enough to keep her satisfied long term. 

Then her ex’s money mismanagement catches up to her in the form of draining her bank account, her job is threatened by a mistake that points to Ryan, and Seth takes his side. If Tasha can’t move past her trust issues long enough to uncover the truth—both with herself and the men she’s falling for—she’ll wind up broken-hearted and just plain broke.

Review by Nadia Chief Obsessive Pimpette

~*~ Obsessed by Books arc copy given in exchange for an honest review~*~

Orcs, halflings and paladins as an opener made me wonder what I was reading! But hmmmmm fantasy role play has it's perks...Tasha is best friends with Ryan and Seth. They are physically complete opposites and yet they both have an ability to make her panties wet. She late night game plays with them both and often stays over but their relationship is developing but is she running the risk of losing her best friends?

This is a short read and yet we still learn a lot of background to Tasha. She has been left high and dry financially by her rotten ex. He has left her in drastic measures and things go from bad to worse. She is also the lead on a large IT campaign at work and an error that seems to be Ryan's complicated things further.

The role playing fantasy verbal sex between them is hot and when they take things further and get together as a threesome I think I swooned! I totally agreed with Tasha,

"Gods, the two of them were going to kill me, and I was going to die happy."

I loved the concept and without spoilers I was in awe of the plot twists and turns as I really didn't see that coming. The work issues are also cleverly resolved and I was smiling from ear to ear at the ending. A panty melting awwwwwww four star read.

Someday, My Forever by Carrie Fox


TITLE: Someday, My Forever
AUTHOR: Carrie Fox
GENRE: Contemporary Romance 
PUBLICATION DATE: September 15, 2014
EDITOR: Michelle Escamilla
COVER DESIGN: Alyson Raynes
LENGTH: 25,000+ words



Rae Ann Bailey has focused on her family and education for her entire life. Now a college freshman, she’s looking forward to everything that being in college entails. She has always thought about what everyone wants and making them happy, so she’s relieved to be out on her own and making her own decisions.

Sam Jenks is a junior, and a vital part of the college rowing team. Studying and getting his team to the national championships are his only priorities. He doesn’t have the time or the desire for a girlfriend

When Sam and Rae Ann meet, they have an instant connection that neither of them can deny. As they get closer, his commitment to the rowing team strains their new relationship, and Rae Ann has to decide if she can handle rowing being number one. Just when it seems that things are going well, someone from Sam’s past threatens to tear them apart. Can Sam and Rae Ann move past their obstacles and decide that their forever is worth it?




The honesty in his voice and expression melted my heart. Shooting him a quick smile, I tilted my head back and quickly kissed him before drawing back slightly. His eyes searched mine, as if assuring himself I was feeling calmer, before he took hold of my hand and pulled me up as he stood. “Let's walk some more,” he suggested.

 I nodded and we left the building hand in hand. When we reached Johnson Street, Sam guided me into the heart of campus and pointed out various buildings as we walked. He stopped me at the bottom of Bascom Hill and explained how it was a popular place for sledding in winter; I laughed at the idea of dining hall trays being used as makeshift sleds. “Just wait and see.” He replied, smirking, and we continued to stroll.

 Sam stopped me again a few blocks later, and pointed toward a building just off University Avenue. “This is the Chazen Museum of Art, one of my favorite places on campus.” He tugged out his phone and checked the time. “It won't open for a while yet but I'd like to show it to you.”

Sam and Rae Ann's story continues. They met and fell in love in Someday, My Forever. Their relationship grew and strengthened and now they're back to share the story of their wedding.



The guests applauded and we turned to face them before making our way up the aisle and out into the hall. I drew Rae Ann to me and kissed her again.

“We did it, beautiful,” I murmured, leaning my forehead against hers. The moment between us was fleeting and our wedding party soon joined us. Rae Ann and I greeted each of them with hugs and received congratulatory replies. A receiving line was formed and we greeted our guests, thanking every person for celebrating our day with us.

Rae Ann grabbed my hand as the last guest walked away, and we shared another kiss. Catcalls from Darrow and Jed had us shaking with laughter.

Author Bio


Fifteen years ago I became a permanent New Yorker, but I've yet to abandon my Texas charm. NYC is an amazing place to find inspiration - the random and the ordinary that make up reality. My writing showcases inspired ideas, as well as my love for dichotomy, authenticity and humor. 

I'm just a girl. A girl with a dream. A dream to write for television. I also had a dream to marry Christian Bale, but I digress. I'm a girl with a dream to write and write and write until someone tells me to stop. And even then I would find a way to write about the jerk who wanted me to stop.

Excerpt
Most women don’t know the pleasure of total surrender. You’ve fantasized about it. Maybe you’ve even tried. Asked for his hands to grip you a little tighter. If he could tie you up. Hold you down. Fuck you the way you need, his cock driving hard and relentless, riding your wet pussy until you can’t take it anymore. But he always stops too soon. Eases up before you’re done. He’s careful, cautious. You know, deep down, he’s not for real. He doesn’t mean it when he makes you beg for him to fuck you, doesn’t push you to your limits and demand everything you have to give—and more. He doesn’t realize that domination is an act of worship. The adoration of a woman beyond all limits; the reverence to give her the pleasure she truly deserves. You wonder, what would it be like with a man who truly commanded you? How sweet would the release be, giving yourself up completely? No limits. No boundaries. His control. “Get on your knees and open your mouth.” This girl knows that pleasure. She’s already panting, eager and wet. She falls to the floor in front of me and assumes the position. Eyes hidden beneath a blindfold. Hands behind her back. Breasts bared. Juicy lips wide open and ready for my cock. I trail a riding crop over her shuddering flesh, pacing a slow circle around her. Her breasts rise and fall with every breath, but she knows better than to beg for me now. Each second I wait makes her nipples stiffen, her thighs clench, her damp clit throb for more. Still, I wait. I watch her beautiful body carefully, landing quick strokes of the crop on her reddening skin. She moans and gasps at the brief impact, and I feel her pleasure like it was my own. Control is my virtue. I demand everything from her, and I won’t be sated until it’s mine.

Jennifer Chance's Want It Blitz @Jenn_Chance



Jennifer Chance returns with another novel that'll keep you hooked.

Erin Connelly meets alpha male Zander James in WANT IT, the third novel in Jennifer Chance's sizzling Rule Breakers series! This one is not to be missed by readers looking for their military romance fix!

Want to get to know Jennifer better? Check out this exclusive interview!




About WANT IT:

In the latest tantalizing Rule Breakers novel from Jennifer Chance, an irresistible alpha male follows his ex into a deadly standoff—and reignites a heated affair.

For Erin Connelly, being a good girl isn’t such a bad thing. She’s working her dream job at a Boston art gallery and staying out of trouble, which is more than she can say for her deadbeat mom. Unfortunately, her mother’s latest misadventure lands her in the clutches of a Mexican drug lord. Now the only person who can save her is the one man Erin has no business asking for help: the sexy-as-sin army ranger who just so happens to be her former high school sweetheart.

Zander James is no gentleman—and no officer, either, thanks to Erin. Four years ago, she made a call that terminated his highest aspirations ... and their relationship. He’s never forgiven her, but when he learns that Erin’s embarking on a half-baked rescue mission, he sure as hell can’t let her go alone. Now, with a treacherous enemy lying in wait, the electrifying tension between them may just be Zander’s undoing. Because while he may be able to keep Erin alive, he can’t promise to keep his hands off her.

Excerpt:

Excerpt 4: Welcome to Nuevo Laredo

A note to readers from author Jennifer Chance:

Because WANT IT is a romance, not a military suspense book, I found I had to focus very hard on not writing scenes that were too “action-adventurey”. But one character who just refused to leave the narrative was Rey Torres. Rey is a shadowy “friend of a friend” who shows up to help Zander and Erin when they need it most, on their quest to free Erin’s mother. He’s smart and funny and a little too happy to bend the rules, but he fits well with the more serious Zander and goes a long way toward making Erin feel just a bit safer in a strange country. Here Rey touches on the danger that exists in Nuevo Laredo, even while trying to reassure Erin. It’s a difficult balance to strike!
“You doing good back there?”
Zander’s words brought her back and Erin blinked. “Yes! Yes, all good.” They were approaching a long line of cars at a bridge, and she was struck with how, well, how normal everything seemed. Not that she wanted a big shoot-out at the Mexican O.K. Corral, but if they went through this with no more trouble than a trip to the grocery, she admitted that a small part of her would be . . . ever so slightly disappointed. She’d read a tiny amount about the drug trade in Mexico, and about people who ran afoul of the dealers. It seemed a lot more scary on the Internet than it did driving around in a rental car.
She frowned as they drove past the first bridge. “Isn’t that where we’re headed?”
Rey glanced at her in the rearview mirror, his ever-present smile still curving the edge of his mouth. “No, ma’am. That’s what we call Bridge Number One—a good enough bridge, don’t get me wrong. But the one we want is Bridge Number Two. I have a pass for the SENTRI lane there.” He tapped a small hang-card he’d slung over the rearview mirror.
“Like an express lane?” she asked, and Rey nodded.
“Exactly like that.”
They turned onto the bridge, and Erin watched the sunlight playing over scorched concrete as they made their way across the arching expanse. “So, is it really as dangerous here as I read about? Should I be worried?”
“You? Not at all.” Rey shrugged. “You have Zander with you, and he seems like a smart guy. You seem like a smart woman. With two smart people, I have found that there is never much need to be worried.” They bumped off the bridge and down onto the street, Rey handling the vehicle easily to get over to the first exit, heading west. “Now if you were dumb? Well, that would be another thing altogether. Camino Real, yes?” Rey asked, and Zander nodded, while Rey flashed Erin a bright grin in the rearview mirror. “Then your adventure begins, my very smart friends. Welcome to Nuevo Laredo.”
