BLURB
It began as a harmless prank.
Then the next thing I know, I’m in the hospital parking lot with a looming deadline and a flat tire when Liam Dailey sidles up on a Harley, all brooding intensity and shaggy blond hair.
He’s determined to be my savior.
But I make a terrible damsel in distress.
The verbal sparring is delicious foreplay and in a weak moment, I give him my number.
It’s a mistake.
See, my life is planned down to the very last detail. While it hasn’t always been a fairy tale existence, I’ve never wanted for anything. Now it’s my turn to give back, and I won’t rest until my debts are paid—all of them.
And no one, not even Dr. Dailey, with his irresistible dimple and guarded past, will derail everything I’ve worked for. I won’t risk it. I can’t.
If I could change the past, I would. For me, and for her. Especially for her.
They call me Dr. Dirty, and I let them.
My colleagues mean it as a joke, but they have no idea how stained my soul really is. The promises I’ve broken. The people I’ve failed. The shame that clouds everything.
The only time I feel like a decent human being is when I’m at the hospital surrounded by patients—people I might actually be able to save. God knows I’m past salvation myself.
Despite my sins, and there are plenty, I’m chasing redemption. A second chance.
I might not deserve it, but I want it.
What I’m not looking for is a warrior princess with a forgiving heart—until I meet Juliana.
When she peers into my soul, she sees light where I see darkness.
Now redemption isn’t enough.
I want her too.
But the road between us is littered with landmines and secrets—most of them mine.
And I’m not sure I can put the past aside to be the man she deserves.
Sexy Sinner is a steamy forbidden love/medical romance inspired by British Bedmate.

REVIEW
Liam & Julianna’s story sucked me in deep and refused to let me go until it was over.

I loved Julianna – the girl loves kettle corn! She’s a fighter that loves deeply, but struggles deeply with certain insecurities that prevent her from fully being settled. Liam stirs her in a way she believes to be detrimental to her goals, but she finds she likes it just a bit too much. Liam has a lot of baggage, but he’s never been shy about admitting that. Dealing fully with that baggage, however, had him a bit queasy. It becomes an absolute necessity after meeting Julianna, though, as she literally fell into his life without warning.

There’s a lot of emotion in this story but it is really a good read. The push and pull between Julianna & Liam was what made this book so good. They were opposites – with Liam’s intensity and Julianna’s way of overthinking things – but it made them perfect for each other. Their chemistry was also very steamy, and I loved their verbal sparring. I loved the layers the author added to the story, and especially enjoyed the secondary characters.

I recommend this read. It is another great book in the Cocky Hero Club series.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

AUTHOR BIO

A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories.

When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

#BlogTour: The Six Month Lease by @melanie_munton ~ #5stars

Title: The Six Month Lease (Southern Hearts Club, Book 2)
Author: Melanie Munton
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: August 18, 2020
Cover Designer: L.J. Anderson at Mayhem Cover Creations
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Never have I ever…moved in with a guy after dating him for only three weeks.
Just kidding. That’s exactly what I did.
And like most of you are probably thinking, it inevitably blew up in my face when we broke up two days after signing our lease.
Now, I’m stuck living with my ex. The same man who turned my life completely upside down in record time.
For. Six. Whole. Months.
It doesn’t matter how many times he flashes those abs at me after a shower, or how close his bedroom is to mine. I will resist him because he’s simply not the right guy for me.
But if I thought he’d done a number on me before, that’s nothing compared to what happens after I finally learn the secret he’s been keeping from me this entire time.

We touch down on the helipad near Patriot’s Point where we left from. The slab of concrete is on the edge of the now mostly empty parking lot, the park having closed over an hour ago. The sun has lowered in the sky, painting it a pink hue with notes of orange and gold.
West does some more talking into his radio headset while going through the process of shutting the aircraft down, flipping switches and pushing buttons. After I’ve had time to take stock of everything, I realize that I’m coming down from a small adrenaline rush. My chest is heaving, my heart still racing.
Now I really get West’s love for flying. It gives you a high like no other.
Helicopter heroin.
The blades slowly stop rotating until the whooping sound of their spinning eventually ceases. West removes his headphones and unstraps himself. Then he leans over and repeats the same process with me.
But once he has my straps unbuckled, he falls back into his own seat.
Slowly removes his aviators—
And spreads his legs.
It’s only then that I notice the tent between his legs.
“Does that happen every time you fly?” I ask, my gaze lasered in on his lap. “Or is that special for me?”
“It’s always for you,” he answers roughly. “That’s the fucking problem. Nothing does it for me anymore but you. The other night when you went out for drinks with the girls, my hand could barely get the job done, even though it was your naked body I pictured in my head the entire time. It’s like nothing will satisfy except the real you.”
I tsk my tongue. “Poor baby. What do you recommend for the pain?”
He unbuckles his belt, lowers his zipper. “I just gave you a ride.” He reaches inside his briefs, palming his erection. “Now, it’s your turn to give me a nice…long…ride.”
I lick my lips unconsciously, feeling my nipples pucker underneath my breezy, linen dress. “These windows aren’t exactly tinted.”
“No one’s around,” he growls, his face reddening with burning lust. “Plus, the cockpit is facing those trees. No one can see us at this angle.”
My pulse jumps at the word cock.
Wriggling his hips, he shoves his shorts and briefs down past his manhood, freeing his rod until it’s rising straight up in the air. When he wraps his fist around the base, I flashback to how he looked handling the control stick. Gripping it so tight, his fingers absently stroking it when he was letting the aircraft coast.
My God, I never thought helicopters could be so sexual.
I’ll never be able to look at any kind of control stick the same way again.
His eyes lower to my chest. “Come sit on your throne, princess.”

Review

Loved it!

Melanie Munton delivered a fun & wonderful tale of second chances, acceptance, self-discovery, friendship & love. West & Harper were a couple I began rooting for from the first few pages, and I was so happy with their HEA. I loved their rivalry and enjoyed the pranks a lot!

I really liked West. He was a good friend and partner. He pushed Harper to step outside her mother’s expectations and live for herself. I was sold on him from their first interaction. Harper herself needed to work through some things, but eventually, she became the woman that West and her best friends knew she could be.

I’m loving this group of women so much! I can’t wait for book 3!

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Melanie grew up in a small town in rural Missouri. After marrying her husband, she decided she wanted to try coastal life because why not? A few months later, they moved to North Carolina where she discovered her passion for writing, and they never looked back. They are now enjoying life with their beautiful daughter in Savannah, GA and loving every minute with their little Georgia peach.

Melanie’s other passion is traveling and seeing the world. With anthropology degrees under their belts, she and her husband have made it their goal in life to see as many archaeological sites around the world as possible.

She has a horrible food addiction to pasta and candy (not together…ew). And she gets sad when her wine rack is empty.

At the end of the day, she is a true romantic at heart. She loves writing the cheesy and corny of romantic comedies, and the sassy and sexy of suspense. She aims to make her readers swoon, laugh out loud, maybe sweat a little, and above all, fall in love.

Blurb:
“Promise you won’t break my heart, Brax.”

He promised. I believed.
Brax Kent was a liar.
He shattered every possible piece of me.

Several years passed before I got through an entire day without shedding a tear.
My existence was hollow, empty, bleak.
Hate was the only thing that pushed me through the day.

Seven years later, who turns up to be my next door neighbor?
The man I despise with every ounce of my being.

And now he wants me back.
With flowery words and sworn oaths full of apologies, he begs.
Can this man who ruined me be trusted?
Only his obstinance, persistence, and beautiful face weaken my resolve.

And I stupidly expose my heart as he wedges himself inside, bit by bit.
Surrendering completely may mean absolute love, or absolute destruction.

The choice is mine.
Cross the line in the sand, or stay in my safe zone.

*One Blissful Night is a complete stand alone, enemies to lovers, contemporary romance, with no cliffhanger.

Review

I remember Reynolds from book 1 as the restless, kinda careless sister. In this book, we meet a more serious, if not totally together version of Reynolds that I immediately liked.

When she realises that the man who broke her heart is also living on Sullivan’s Island, she very nearly has a meltdown. In a bid to gain the upper hand in this not-so-great surprise scenario, she begins pranking him. The pranks are hilarious, but they also manage to ensure that Reynolds & Braxton have no choice but to see and communicate with each other.

Braxton has always regretted the way he left things between himself & Reynolds. He mans up and decides that he is going to ask Reynolds for forgiveness and prove to her that the man she fell in love with all those years ago still exists.

I liked their second chance journey. They re-learned each other, and I liked that Brax was true to his word. I liked the cast of characters here. Hopefully, we hear from Sutton soon, too.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Excerpt:
Hours passed and she finally stood. I did too and said, “Reynolds, I—”

Her hand flew out. “You don’t have the right to speak to me. You lost that right several hours ago. You don’t have the right to follow me, touch me, or call me. We are over.”

“I need to explain.”

“You must have a hearing problem. Your needs mean nothing to me.”

She walked away. I followed only because she was not getting away that easy. I would not give up on us. Never again.

I was on her tail and as she went to get into her car, she said, “I told you to leave me alone.”

“I know. I heard. But I refuse to do that. Not until you hear me out. I deserve that much from you.”

“You deserve nothing. You promised—”
