Release Day Blitz for The Billionaire Game by Lila Monroe. @givemebooksblog @lilawrites




Title: The Billionaire Game
Series: The Billionaire Game #1
Author: Lila Monroe
 Release Date: May 4, 2015


Synopsis


Sexy playboy billionaire Asher Young goes through girlfriends like he goes through bottles of Mo√ęt. I would know — he brings them all to get fitted for my luxury lingerie designs. I guess that's one way to avoid awkward conversations when they find another girl’s panties in his Maserati.

Now he has a proposition for me: he’ll invest in my design business, and I’ll finally open the boutique of my dreams.

There’s just one problem: I can’t stop kissing him. And he looks REALLY good naked.

Make that two problems….

Excerpt

“I can have my lawyers draw up the contract this afternoon: I’ll front the cash in exchange for minority percentage of ownership. Are you in?”

He looked especially kissable in that moment, all hopeful and earnest and excited, and a tiny bit vulnerable as he waited for my answer. It was hard to remember all the times he had made me so mad, hard to remember that there was anything about this man that anyone could find infuriating.

There was a little whisper of worry in the back of my mind that said I still didn’t know who the real Asher was: was it the sweet man who reassured me that he believed in me, and joked about his own failings? Or the condescending, flirty asshole who had three girlfriends but still couldn’t keep his sly winks and hands to himself?

I looked around the store and as the anticipation bubbled up inside me, I realized that it didn’t matter. This whole venture was a risk, especially with Asher, but there was no way I was going to say no. Not when this was what I had always wanted.

“Okay,” I said out loud. “You’ve got a deal.”

Now, all I had to do was make it through this business partnership without killing him, kissing him, or both.

 Release Date: May 4, 2015


Synopsis


Three people irrevocably linked. 
A remorseless killer. 
A shady businessman. 
A woman caught in the cross-fire.

Braxton Alexander is a beast without remorse; a vessel filled with hate. Imprisoned for the murder of the one girl who loved him, now he is free, and hell bent on taking all of his pent up rage out on one person in particular.

Brycen Cole knows he must stop Braxton from taking everything he has and turning it to ash.

Gemma Woods has loved Brycen for years, but ever so slowly the happiness she once felt in the arms of her lover has turned to fear and resentment.

Braxton has one goal, one thought, and one mission – destroy Brycen Cole, by any means necessary. 
He will not stop. 
He will not fail. 
Like a juggernaut, he will keep coming, destroying everything in his wake.

Brycen runs a successful corporation and provides a lot of pay-checks; he also has a shady past and a dark talent for hiding things.

Gemma spots the wolf in sheep’s clothing but cannot stop gravitating towards him again and again.

What happens when the lines between good and evil become blurred? 
What happens when the one you love is the one you should fear?
What happens when the one you fear becomes the only one you can trust?

Review by Julie Whips & Chains Pimpette

ARC copy for a honest review.

Gem is in trouble and it has all to do with two men. One is pure evil and hurtful. The other is playing a game on payback and she just might get caught in the middle.

These characters are great. I love the fact the he was able to get his revenge and do it so well.

Braxton is out for revenge.
Brycen is a snake and just continues to do his business
Gem is the girl in the middle

I really liked Braxton's way of thinking and planning. Brycen is not as smart as he thinks he is.

Great read. Excellent writing.

Author Bio

Mandy Lou Dowson was born and raised in a small town in Ireland, in 1983, and at this stage in life, she's pretty sure the town won't let her leave. Family is a huge deal to Mandy. She has three wonderful children (most of the time), and two Siberian Huskies who are each as naughty as the other – in fact, she's sure they egg each other on in silly cartoon voices when nobody is looking.

~

“Climb out the window and get covered in mud.”

“No, I did it last time. You do it!”

“R'uh, r'oh, here SHE is. Shhh.”


~

When she's not writing, reading, or plotting her next book -- or, you know, world domination – , she likes to relax with a few glasses of wine and some karaoke. You can usually find her procrastinating on social media of some sort, chatting to fans and talking nonsense.
 
Mandy started reading at quite a young age and her appetite for the written word has only increased with time. It would not be at all surprising to find her reading anything and everything from shampoo bottles to Edgar Allan Poe.
 
She is the author of three different genres of romance books. The Moon Bound series, which is in the Paranormal Romance genre, and is gathering rave reviews, and the Taboo series, which is Contemporary with a hint of the forbidden, the first of which has gathered very mixed reviews across the board, from one extreme to the other.

She has also made a foray into Dark Romance recently, with her first title in the genre, Retribution, releasing in Summer 2015.

Untouch Me by Dawn Martens Blog Tour @Dawn_Martens



Genre: Romantic Suspense

Angels Warriors Series
Cover Designer: Sara Eirew Photography



The truth always comes out, no matter how deep you try to bury it. Secrets never make their way to the grave.
Lilly Mayer has always lived a simple life. She’s loyal—maybe too loyal since faithfulness cost her the love of her life. Keeping Eden’s whereabouts a secret from everyone, including Vinny, has ripped away Lilly’s future.


Vincent “Zippo” Torino knows he’s a goddamn bastard. And he’s willing to use Lilly’s loyalty to Eden as his own escape from a hell he created. He doesn’t give a damn that he’s leaving the woman pregnant with his child behind—not when he has to protect his own destructive secret. And not when he’s sure she’s going to beat him to the punch and leave first.



As the dangers to the club escalate, nobody’s hearts—or lives—are safe.




*All books in this series are 50K words, all to be combined into ONE paperback titled UnLove Me*





by Nadia Chief Obsessive Pimpette

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

"Everything I have come to know has changed...I can already feel the weight of her secret bearing down on my shoulders."

You need to read Unkiss Me to fully appreciate this story, although the first part retells Eden's story from Lilly's and Vinny's pov. We see through their eyes how Eden's disappearance impacted on their lives, choices and decisions. How the actions of one has a ripple effect that altered the paths of everyone she had touched. This story although set in an MC focuses on love, the bonds of friendship and the irrevocable damage a lie can cause...

Lilly has always been in love with Vinny. He eventually "see's" her one day and he claims her as his and they start a tempestuous relationship. They are part of the bbf club that grew up together: Mason and Hilary, Eden and Jasper, Lilly and Vinny all interwoven by their shared childhoods. Lilly and Vinny have been on/off forever, Vinny picking fights and leaving her whilst Lilly has loved him enough to always sit back and wait for him to come around. She has kept to her word and protected Eden's secrets which has driven a wedge between her and Vinny.

Vinny is a selfish, childish man who wants his cake and to eat it too! He loves Lilly but can't keep it in his pants, returning to Kayla once she comes home from college. Ending things with Lilly and running straight into Kaylas arms, he feels he isn't cheating as it's only whenever he is on a break (cue Friends music as the scene between Ross and Rachel plays out!) So Vinny keeps his own secrets, even though he hates lies after the events involving Eden, knowing the truth will destroy his chance of love with his one true woman. Have I mentioned his mother hates Lilly!?! And she makes no secret of it, at least someone is honest. Lilly keeps her on/off relationship secret from her bff's as she knows it toxic and her own mother hopes she see's the relationship for what it is but love is blind!

We gain a better understanding of how the Angels Warriors became the club we meet in the first book, what the boys endured to become the men of today. We flick from past events to where we left off in book one, with Jasper still unable to look Eden in the eye after keeping his children secret. This book is full of heart wrenching moments, misery and unrequited love. The heart wants what the head understands it can't have but it still doesn't hurt any less. The plot to over throw the club and return it to the darker ways of the past thickens...and all in all this is one fast paced rollercoaster ride of a book!

I am now gutted I have such a long wait for Mason and Hilary's story...I need to know what happens next! Seriously this is a well written MC book that doesn't focus on club life or the seedy side of things but looks at the complications of lies, the pain of loyalty and the bonds of friendship. My lips are sealed in regards to the plot twists and progression, but you won't be disappointed.

A four star oh my freakin days read!

  Secret Maneuvers by Jessie Lane
Some mistakes from the past haunt us forever… unless fate steps in with a second chance.
One ‘Dear John’ letter haunted Bobby Baker’s every living moment. It was the letter he’d stupidly written to his high school sweetheart, Belle, right after he had left to join the Army. The letter in which he’d told her that he wasn’t so sure they were ready for forever yet. Before he could let her know that the letter, and his second thoughts, were nothing more than a mistake, she disappeared from the small Georgia town they had both been raised in. Fifteen years after the letter, Belle unknowingly walked back into Bobby’s life when her job as an ATF Agent forced her to work with a group of men secretly headed by the CIA to help her track down whoever was involved in funneling black market weapons to a drug cartel in Mexico. Bobby planned to use this mission to try to soothe Belle’s hurt feelings while proving to her that their love was meant to be forever. He would use every dirty trick he’d learned since he had joined the Army to maneuver her back into his life for the long haul. Belle was not making it easy, though, as she continued to keep him at arm’s length in the hopes that mistakes of her own would never come to light.

Excerpt

She puts her hands on the back of my head and pulls me towards her, thrusting her tongue down my throat, tongue-fucking me as I bite and suck at her cherry-flavored mouth. I run my hands aggressively down her back, tracing the curve that leads to her ass, and grab it hungrily, pulling her leg up against my hip, and running my other hand down her thigh, then back up inside her skirt.

Ms. Long Legs can’t even catch her breath quick enough to moan properly. Shaking her ass on the dancefloor was foreplay enough, now she’s wet and ready. I press her up against the wall, and slip my hand under her thigh to find a sweet wetness below. She just shudders a little and pulls me closer aggressively.

I roll my fingers around her barely-there underwear, feeling the inviting softness of her pussy. She pulls her head back, looks up at the sky, and exhales deeply, her chest sinking beautifully.

I get a good grip on her panties and tear them off her in a single, powerful stroke. It turns her on even more.

This book will have you reaching for the tissues, you will feel every emotion possible in this read. 

Obstacles are faced and you are wondering whether Tanner and Ashley can overcome all that is thrown at them. Wrongs are tried to make right and can they be overcome or will one person be left damaged by the actions of one of them.

This is a great read and you will be surprised on the feelings that you will get reading this book.

She loves a good book that is impossible to put down and you will mostly likely find her reading in her downtime, unless of course, there is a football game on.
