Hell Hath No Fury by Anabelle Anders



To keep the money, he has to keep her as well…

Cecily Nottingham has made a huge mistake. 

The marriage bed was still warm when the earl she thought she loved crawled out of it and announced that he loved someone else. 

Loves. Someone else.

All he saw in Cecily was her dowry. 

But he’s in for the shock of his life, because in order to keep the money, he has to keep her. 

With nothing to lose, Cecily sets out to seduce her husband’s cousin, Stephen Nottingham, in an attempt to goad the earl into divorcing her. Little does she realize that Stephen would turn out to be everything her husband was not: Honorable, loyal, trustworthy…

Handsome as sin.

Stephen only returned to England for one reason—save his cousin’s estate from financial ruin. Instead, he finds himself face to face with his cousins beautiful and scorned wife. 

Only now that he's home, he isn’t sure what to do first, strangle his cousin, or kiss his wife. 

His honor is about to be questioned, right along with his self-control. 

Amid snakes, duels and a good catfight, Cecily realizes the game she’s playing has high stakes indeed.  

There are only a few ways for a marriage to end in Regency England and none of them come without a high price. Is she willing to pay it? Is Stephen? 

A ‘Happily Ever After’ hangs in the balance, because, yes, love can conquer all, but sometimes it needs a little bit of help.

The Unrequited by Saffron A. Kent **Release Blitz & ARC Review**




Title: The Unrequited
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 13, 2017



Layla Robinson is not crazy. She is suffering from unrequited love. But it’s time to move on. No more stalking, no more obsessive calling.

What she needs is a distraction. The blue-eyed guy she keeps seeing around campus could be a great one—only he is the new poetry professor—the married poetry professor.

Thomas Abrams is a stereotypical artist—rude, arrogant, and broody—but his glares and taunts don’t scare Layla. She might be bad at poetry, but she is good at reading between the lines. Beneath his prickly façade, Thomas is lonely, and Layla wants to know why. Obsessively.

Sometimes you do get what you want. Sometimes you end up in the storage room of a bar with your professor and you kiss him. Sometimes he kisses you back like the world is ending and he will never get to kiss you again. He kisses you until you forget the years of unrequited love; you forget all the rules, and you dare to reach for something that is not yours.

NOTE: Please be aware that this book deals with sensitive topics like cheating and death. 18+ Only.

Excerpt

I’m hit by a storm of desire to kiss him better. It’s a tornado, an avalanche in my body, and in one breathless moment, I decide to go for it. It’s okay. I can take the blame for it later.
I break the rules and reach up and kiss him. A feathery peck on his plump lips, it’s a kiss of solidarity, a kiss that intends to tell him I understand—but one isn’t enough. It only manages to ratchet up my lust. So I give him another, this time on the corner of his mouth, and then another one on his jaw.
It’s not enough, these small, barely-there touches. I want more, but I won’t take it. I’ll be good; I’ll only give.
Abruptly, he fists my curls and stops me. I look at him fearfully, ready to apologize—not for the kiss, but for being the kisser. His gaze reflects passion, stark, raving need, and I shiver, despite wearing layers and sweating with his heat.
“Are you trying to kiss me, Layla?” he rasps, flexing his fingers on my makeshift ponytail.
He couldn’t tell? Blush rises to the surface and I know I’m glowing like a neon sign. Swallowing, I nod. “Yes.”
He inches closer to me, still not touching—as impossible as that is—but infinitely closer. “You want to kiss me, Miss Robinson, you do it right.”
Oh God, does he have to call me that? Now, here? My spine arches on its own and my heavy tits graze the contours of his shuddering chest.
“H-How?” I ask innocently, belying the daring action of my body. His stern, professor-y voice is doing things to me, making me wild, uncontrolled.
For a second, he’s silent, just watching. I’m afraid he’ll back out from whatever this is, whatever insanity we’re about to commit—but then I sense the shift in the liquor-laced air as he opens his mouth and growls, “Like this.”

4 UNREQUITED STARS


"Unrequited love and insomnia are longtime friends of mine."


Layla Robinson is a new student and somehow she finds her way following a handsome and mysterious man. That man walks into a classroom in her campus and she finds herself amongst his students. Professor Abrams is definitely a tough one, an asshole and a challenge to her. But it seems that he also took notice of her.

Layla soon discovers that her professor is not only young and handsome, but also a married man and father. Something that will complicate things when they will get to know each other better. She will reveal to him her secrets and in turn they will try to help each other out.


"I want him because he's like me. He's in unrequited love and I want to save him, somehow."


Even though I had a few issues and I didn't always agree with the characters and their actions, I really enjoyed the writing of the author. This was my first book written by Saffron and it definitely intrigued me to read more by her.

To be completely honest I felt like I needed more romance in this story. I get that it's an erotic one and I like the bad heroes, but Thomas was constantly an asshole to her. Maybe I expected a steady progess in his character and I didn't see it happen, or maybe I was in a more lovey-dovey phase and that's why I wasn't 100% satisfied on this part.


"He is like my personal moon- unattainable, to be admired from afar. He is my cancer, slowly killing me, and I don't even mind."


Nonetheless, I loved the poetry, the dialogues, the characters and the scenery. It really felt like I was in the campus with them. I loved the little details, the secondary characters, I definitely rooted for her friends. I also enjoyed the plot twists and the little surprises here and there were definitely thumbs up during my reading experience.

If you need a hot and steamy student-professor romance, you need to pick this up :)

The Long Way Home - about book 

TheLongWayHome  

I need you, Ava.

I am desperate. For you. For a touch. For a kiss. For the scrape of your hand down my stomach. For the slide of your lips across my hipbone. The sweep of your thigh against mine in the dulcet, drowning darkness. For the warm huff of your breath on my skin and the wet suck of your mouth around me and the building pressure of need reaching release...I am mad with need.

Wild with it.

I cannot have you. I have lost you, as I have lost myself.

And so I go in search. Of myself, and thus the man who might return to you, and take you in his arms.

I loathe each of the thousands of miles between us, but I cannot wish them away, for I hope at the end of my journey I shall find you. Or rather, find myself, and thus…you. Myself, and thus us. 

I am taking the long way home, Ava.

***

Christian,

I’m losing my mind, and I don’t know how to stop it. I shouldn’t be writing to you, but I am. I’m friendless, loveless, and lifeless. You’re out there somewhere, and still you’re all I really have. I hate my reliance and dependence on you, emotionally and otherwise, and that reliance is something I’m coming to recognize. I hate that I can’t hate you as much as I want to. I hate that I still love you so much.

I hate that there’s no clear solution to our conundrum. Even if we could forgive each other, what then?

I hate you, Christian. I really do.

But most of all, I don’t.

It’s complicated.

Complicatedly (still) yours,

Ava

Strong Enough by Melanie Harlow & David Romanov **Blog Tour & ARC Review**

Strong Enough, an all-new sexy standalone from USA Today Bestselling author Melanie Harlow and David Romanov is available now !

MHDRStrongEnoughBookCover5x8_BW_350

Strong Enough

by Melanie Harlow & David Romanov

Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

Publication Date: June 19, 2017

I wasn’t looking for Derek Wolfe.

I wasn’t looking for anybody. All I wanted was to start a new life in America. But when I found myself stranded here with no place to go, he came to my rescue, offering me a place to stay.
He’s smart, successful, and sexy as hell—I can barely sleep knowing he’s right down the hall. And when the chemistry between us explodes one night with fierce, fiery passion, it’s hard to deny there’s something real between us.
But he does.
He says he was drunk. He says it was a one-time thing. He says he’s not into guys and what we did meant nothing.
He’s lying. Because it happened again, and again, and again. And it’s better every time.
I know we could be good together, and I want the chance to try, but I’m done hiding. If he’s not strong enough to admit the truth, I’ll have to be strong enough to walk away.

Excerpt:

Figuring I’d had enough booze to blunt his effect on me, I rolled up the sleeves of my black button-down shirt and moved next to him. “I’ll help you.” “Okay.” I caught him trying to not to look at my wrists and forearms, and it made me smile. How does it feel to want someone and have to hide it? “You wash, I’ll dry?” “Sounds good.” We worked in silence, shoulder to shoulder, and I found myself increasingly—and disturbingly—pleased at the thought of him being attracted to me and being forced to conceal it. It was fucking horrible of me to take pleasure in his discomfort, but I liked being secretly wanted. Being illicitly desired. Being the object of his covert glances and maybe even his darkest, dirtiest thoughts. I let our arms touch more than necessary, as thrilled by the physical contact as I was by the thought of what it might be doing to him. For there is no man who does not sin. My dick started to get hard, clearly unbothered by the whiskey that was breaking down my inhibitions, pushing past all my defenses, and letting my imagination run wild. What’s in that gorgeous head of yours, Maxim? What’s behind those cobalt eyes? What would you do to me, if I let you? What would you let me do to you? “Carolyn is so nice,” he said, handing me the last serving dish left to be dried. What? He was thinking about Carolyn right now? He wasn’t supposed to be thinking about Carolyn—I was, goddammit! But I wasn’t. “Yeah.” He turned off the water. Rested his wet hands on the edge of the sink. “I didn’t realize you had a girlfriend.” And I heard it in his voice—the slightest edge of jealousy, so faint I might never have noticed it had I not been so hyperaware of everything about him right now. I fucking loved it. “She’s not my girlfriend.” “Oh.” Now there was confusion. “I guess I misunderstood.” “She wants to be my girlfriend.” Silence. Of course there was silence. Maxim would never ask what the problem was. But I wanted to tell him. I wanted him to know. I wanted to share the impossible longing I felt with one person who might understand it. “The problem is me.” He was completely still. Before I could stop myself, I covered his right hand with my left. “Sometimes I don’t know what I want.” He yanked his hand from beneath mine and we faced each other. For the first time tonight, I looked him right in the eye. Nothing around us existed for me anymore. I heard only his breath. Smelled only his skin. Saw only his guarded expression. I had to have him.

"With love, anything was possible."




Derek is a neat monster who has everything in order. He has the perfect plan for his life, to find a wife, get married and have kids; make the perfect family. One night his sister calls him and asks for a favor. To come and pick up a Russian guy who just came to USA and he was stolen and he has nowhere to go for the night. He asks him to offer him a place to stay for the night and after a while he does that.

I wasn't expecting him at all.
I wasn't expecting any of it.


Maxim has just landed in America, a place to help him make his dream come true and become a screenwriter. A place to start new and live freely as a gay man, since he couldn't do that back in Russia. When he meets Derek he tries to hold himself back, since he is grateful for the help and because Derek seems to be straight.

The tension is real between them and even though Derek doesn't want to act on it, one night changes everything. The thing is Derek isn't ready to face the truth and Max doesn't want to hide anymore.



Madness. That's what it was. And I could no longer contain it.


I freaking loved this one!! The chemistry was palpable between Max and Derek and I fell in love with both of them! Because that's what happens with MM books, you fall in love with two book boyfriends, not just one! I loved how sweet and hot their scenes were and his sister, his best friend's family and Carolyn were just a beautiful addition to the story. Well done, Melanie and David! I definitely recommend this one, if you're a fan of MM books or want to try this genre, you will fall in love with this one! :)
