SYNOPSIS
Law student Beth Dreymon is out of money and struggling hard. If she wants to finish her degree, she’s going to have to earn some money and fast. When she learns of an exciting opportunity—playing chess with New York’s most elusive billionaire—the offer sounds too good to be true. Reassured the offer is legit, Beth gets her game face on and prepares to geek out...
 
Only, when she steps foot into Raphael North’s luxurious penthouse, the rulebook goes flying out of the floor-to-ceiling windows. North is beautiful and damaged—a terrible temptation—and he has his sights set on winning Beth over. He’s just a job, though. A job Beth needs in order to make ends meet. If she plans on making her life in New York work, she needs to keep her eye on the prize. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, however, and it isn’t long before Beth finds herself entangled in Raphael’s world of dark desire.
 
Captor.
Curator.
Lover.
Enigma.
 
Beth should run from the devastatingly attractive blue-eyed devil, but Mr North has other ideas…and he’s about to make his next move.



Mr. North is my first Callie Hart read and I have to say, "WHOA!!! This author knows how to give a reader a mysterious alpha billionaire that you'll want more of." This is one story with twist and turns that kept me on the edge. The sexcapades between these two characters is intense to the point that I felt my knees give out.

Raphael North has been a man of mystery, after a tragic accident he has secluded himself for 5 years. His penthouse has been his domain, he's safe and in his own way he believes he has control of his life. That is until he allows a woman that has caught his attention into his world. His need for her may start with a game of chess, but it becomes so much more. Will Mr. North who has kept himself away from the media, be able to protect and keep the one thing he wants a secret?  

Beth Dreymon's life changes the moment she is given an offer to meet and play chess with celebrity billionaire Raphael North. The money she is offered will help pay for her tuition, as a law student she is struggling. I fell in love with her character because she is trust-worthy, honest, real and is not willing to take the easy way out. Beth will definitely need to stay true to who she is if she decides to take Mr. North's offer. Will she be able to handle everything that is in store for her once she discovers the demons and secrets that has destroyed the man she longed and thought of as invincible in her dreams?

Mr. North is such an exciting read that had me reading it in one day. Raph and Beth, two characters that have lived their lives haunted by the past. They find their feelings of security, strength and love in each other. This is a very passionate and dirty read with an intense storyline that will have you questioning the loyalty of those that surround them. 
4.5 Wholly Hot As Hell Stars!!!



         
EXCERPT
Raphael North stands on the other side of the abnormally thick glass. He’s dressed in a plain dark blue t-shirt, and a pair of washed out blue jeans. His feet are completely bare. His hair is even darker than it was in his picture, if that’s at all possible. Almost curly, too. It’s then that I realize it’s wet—he must have just gotten out of the shower. There are small dark patches on his t-shirt where water has obviously soaked through the material.
He turns those startling vivid green eyes on me and I’m breathless all over again. It feels like I’m tumbling over some steep cliff face, a weightless sensation turning my stomach over as I fall. Inside, I’m back to wanting to flee the building. Externally, I’m praying to deities of faiths and religions all over the world that I don’t look like I’m about to slump in an unconscious mess on the floor right in front of him. My top lip begins to twitch—something that only happens when I’m really, really anxious. Without thinking, I press my fingertips to my mouth, as if I can put a halt to the twitching by touch alone. A strange look passes over Raphael’s face. A slight movement at the corner of his mouth. I can’t decide if it’s displeasure or amusement. Either way, the reaction is fleeting, barely noticeable at all, and then his face is a blank mask again. He places his hand on a curved silver handle on the other side of the door, and then pulls it toward him, opening it. There are no barriers now. Nothing standing between myself and a man whispered and gossiped about by an entire city. Screw that, an entire nation. I’m in an enviable position right now, but I’d gladly thank the universe if the ground opened up and swallowed me whole.
The first words Raphael North speaks to me will haunt me until the day I die. He angles his head ever so slightly to one side, then says, “Your toenail polish is chipped, Ms. Dreymon.”
Lord have mercy. His voice is deep but soft. It has no hard edges, but at the same time his tone is overflowing with self-confidence and command.
“I’m sorry, I…wasn’t aware of your no-shoe policy.”

Dear Captor,

You show me you care, but then something changes. The brightness in your eyes shines through on your good days, but when you come to me on your dark days, the blackness has taken over.
At least I know what I’m in for . . . pain.
You’ve managed to crawl under my skin in the most excruciating yet sensual way, my darkest secrets are now yours, and the emotions I feel for you are something I’ve never felt before. This sensation is strange, yet exhilarating.
Do you feel the same?
If you do love me, please . . . let me go.

Forever yours,
Elenore

Cover Reveal for As Long As You Hate Me by Carrie Aarons




Title: As Long As You Hate Me
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Sarah Hansen, Okay Creations
Release Date: December 3, 2017



Blurb

Kara

High school sweethearts. What a load of bull.

He might have been my first love, but it never meant I wanted to hear lyrics containing my name, love story, and *cringe* how I lost my virginity peddled out for the masses to digest.

Seven years later, and I’m still being haunted by his photo in every magazine, his music on every radio station. I thought breakups meant that you never had to see the person again. Especially when they ripped out your heart and made hamburger meat with it.

But when a chance encounter ends up going viral, I’m tied to him in a way I’ve always dreaded. And the last person on earth I’d want to spend an hour with, much less a lifetime, makes me an offer I can’t refuse. I might just be desperate enough to take it.

Dean

The girl in the song is real. And she’s made me a rich man.

I’ve been dedicating choruses to her for a decade, she’s the muse she never wanted to be. Off of our love, I’ve become famous … and a complete egomaniac.

When another one of my flings goes off the rails, and lands me in hot water with the media, my recording label is less than thrilled. And so comes the marching orders from my agent; devise a scheme to transform into a squeaky clean good guy.

Coming face to face with her is something I’ve only dreamed about. If not to win her back, then to at least apologize for the ways I’ve exploited her. Instead, I rope her into my madness, proposing a deal only a masochist would accept.

Cover Reveal for Locked by Clarissa Wild




Title: Locked
Author: Clarissa Wild
Genre: Dark Romance
Cover Design: Booming Covers
Release Date: December 4, 2017



Blurb

People say I’m ferocious. Wild. Dangerous.
They’re right. That’s why I live on an island alone.
The jungle is my home. My personal prison.
Until she arrived.
The moment her helicopter crashed on my land, everything changed.
She’s the only survivor … And I’m keeping her locked up in a pit.
It’s been too long since I last touched a woman, especially one so beautiful.
It makes me hunger for her.
I want her … So I’ll keep her …
And I’ll make her mine.






Excerpt

I shake my head and mumble, “I’m sorry.”
He cocks his head and gets up from the bed slowly, waltzing towards me.
I brace myself against the wall as he approaches, my head turned to the side. I close my eyes, waiting for punishment. Will he tie me up again? Lock me up in the pit? Or worse, hurt me?
But he doesn’t.
Not any of that.
Because as I hold my breath awaiting his move … He kisses me.
Right on my neck.
My eyes spring open only to meet his, the same hunger from before flashing in his eyes.
His tongue darts out to lick his lips.
Another kiss follows … right below the previous one.
My breath hitches in my throat as he keeps adding more.
He places a hand right beside me on the wooden wall, trapping me. His other hand snakes up my waist. His kisses are equally soft as they are sinful, and I can’t help but let go in the moment.
He grabs my breast and squeezes.
I can’t breathe.
Can’t fucking breathe.
His next kiss on my collarbone has my eyes rolling into the back of my head.
With a quick nudge, the top button of my shirt pops. His finger slips in … more pop … and down he goes until all of them are opened. He parts it gently as his lips find mine, and he kisses me hard.
And his mouth … tastes so damn good.
Feels so good.
The way he parts my lips and pushes in his tongue without holding back.
I’m helpless against his assault on my senses, making me delirious with need.
“Jules …” he murmurs against my lips, softly nibbling them. “I dreamt of you. Naked.”
His hand wraps around my throat as he presses a demanding kiss on my lips and licks the roof of my mouth. “Under my palm.” I moan when he finds my nipple and twists it. “Begging for my cock.”
A wide grin spreads on his lips. “It wasn’t a dream … was it?”

Book Review for Seasons of Change by Kimi Flores




Alone and suddenly jobless, I found myself at a crossroads for the first time in my life. I did what any rational person would—bought a home in the small town I’d spent most of my childhood summers in.

The last thing I needed was to move next door to a charming, selfless and, not to mention, handsome man. The moment Elliott stepped off his front porch to welcome me to the neighborhood, I was tempted to have the moving truck make a U-turn and head back out of town, with me quickly in tow.

But with the patience of a saint, he chipped away at my defensive walls and made me feel things I’d always been too busy to contemplate, much less experience. Before moving to Hope Falls, my life had merely revolved around my career. Now between my sexy neighbor, living in the charming small mountain town, and the approaching winter holidays I feel like I’m living in a beautiful snow globe.

Can this Season of Change lead to my everlasting?


Seasons of Change is a short and fast read. In Kimi Flores's writing style I am still able to get all the emotions I love in a great contemporary romance. I had a smile on my face from the first page up until the last page, that's because I was sad that it was ending. This story embodies love and romance, the butterflies in your stomach and heart on your sleeve type of love.

Tess has given most of her life to her job, now that the job she loves has made changes... it's time she does the same. She decides to move to the one place that holds special memories and that's Hope Falls. This may be the best decision she has ever made, especially when she gets to know her new neighbor. 

Elliot is a divorced father and after his divorce he has made Hope Falls his home. He loves the community, the scenery and now he can't help but notice the beautiful woman that has moved next door. There is nothing not to love about Elliot, he is the perfect gentleman that makes falling in love with him so easy.  

Seasons of Change is a beautiful falling in love story. It made me think about the times that I'm so busy and I forget about the girl I once was.  It's really worth taking chances and finding that inner child we all have inside of us. I'm such a fan of Kimi Flores and she has this way of making my heart smile. This is another 5 Star read and I recommend that you pick up one of her books.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Kimi Flores writes heartfelt romance novels, including her Intertwined Hearts love story collection, Intertwined Hearts, An Exceptional Twist, Tangled Paths & Grafted Vines as well as Hope Falls kindle world novellas, Unexpected Promises & Seasons of Change. Her first New Adult novel, Making Ripples is scheduled to publish in 2018.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ruth Cardello puts two hearts on the line when a Boston billionaire takes a second chance on the woman of his dreams.

And she’s discovered the perfect lure: his college sweetheart, Hailey.
Although she broke his heart, Hailey is still the only woman he’s ever loved. Now that she’s back and looking as desirable as ever, Spencer is determined to get a second chance.

  A lot has changed for Hailey Tiverton. The only thing that hasn’t? The inexplicable pull she feels toward Spencer. When they were younger, his work was his priority. Now, he’d better be willing to prove that, this time, love comes first…

Author Bio


Ruth Cardello hit the NYTs and USA Today for the first time back in 2012. Millions of sales are evidence that her books are akin to potato chips, addictive from the first one. She has created a multi-series billionaire world with a combination of escapism and realism that has gained her a faithful following of readers.

What Kindle Reviewers write about her:

"Wow hot at every page. Heart stoping, fear raging, mind blowing wonderful."

"I'm a true fan of Ms. Cardello. I ran on to her first book a few years back and have been hooked ever since. I could go on and on about the story line of this book, but I'm not. All of her books are total page turners, unique, heart wrenching, and I love them all. There isn't two alike in the bunch and I feel like I know the characters personally. I personally read 97 authors books. And I buy every book they put out. This author is in my top 10. Great job and keep them coming."

"Love this series. Got me to start reading again. I look forward to the next book. Thank you for giving me the love of reading back."

Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York--then came full circle and moved back to New England. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.

She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm or connecting with her readers online.
