Tour: Heat by Penny Reid

Synopsis 3

Elements of Chemistry: HEAT is part 2 of a 3 part series (65k word novel) and ends in a cliffhanger.

**Blurb contains spoilers if you haven’t read Elements of Chemistry: ATTRACTION**
Four days left.
Private beach (…and boat).
Not so invisible girl.
And maybe less of a jerk-faced bully than originally thought.
What’s the worst (or the best) that could happen?

Kaitlyn is finding life outside of the science cabinet of obscurity to be quite illuminating …and so are her pants.
When things heat up between Kaitlyn Parker and Martin—previously known as the jerk-faced bully—Sandeke, she places her trust in the one person she never thought capable of earning it, let alone keeping it safe. Fortunately or unfortunately for Kaitlyn, where she gives her trust she can’t help but also give her heart.

But how will the world beyond the sanctuary of their newfound connection react to their relationship? Soon senators, chinless billionaires, and elements beyond Martin and Kaitlyn’s control want to weigh in on the young couple’s future.

Navigating the chaotic inferno of new love might be more than Kaitlyn bargained for, and much, much more than her trust—or her heart—can handle.

Review

5 Pennies

Penny Reid never disappoints. As she built us up through the budding relationship of Kaitlyn and Martin, she left us hanging on the edge of our seat at the end of attraction. And in pure Penny form, she devises her twists and turns keeping the reader slightly off kilter.

While skeptical of Martin’s true intentions, watching these two grow as a couple and individuals learning that it is ok to want things for themselves. That is it ok to put their desires above the weighty expectations they feel are pressed upon them.

And while going into more detail would cause me to reveal spoilers, this story builds in intensity and heat.

Author Bio

Author-Photo-Penny-Reid-300x300

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.

It is no secret how much I enjoy Penny Reid’s books.  The Elements of Chemistry series is no exception.  As Kaitlyn and Martin’s relationship develops, it provided flashbacks to college days and the newness of more adult relationships than those that had come before.  Penny does a stellar job in creating just the right amount of everything one wants in a NA story and has won me over to the genre.

Excerpt

And I’m also torn about Julien. I think I’m falling in love with him,
even though I really don’t know anything about him, except that he’s
incredibly smart and successful and has horrible nightmares. But I
know nothing about his family, his childhood, his past loves, or
anything else for that matter. And every time I’ve tried to ask about
even the most basic details of his childhood, he manages to change the
subject or turn the focus to me. All he has ever told me is that he
grew up in Mexico, and was extremely close with his mother, who died
of cancer shortly after he graduated from high school. That’s
literally all I know about a man who is becoming an obsession – a man
I want to love even more than I realized I could love.

My relationship with him is so important – not only because he seems

like a potential soul mate (if I could just get him to open up more),
but also because of what he has done, and can continue to do, to help
my family and community. Last night I tried to bring us even closer by
offering him a priceless token of my love and gratitude, but he
refused to accept it from me, which left me feeling strangely rejected
and unsure about him again. I’ve been wondering whether he wouldn’t
take my necklace because he’s afraid he won’t stay with me over the
long term.

I just wish that I didn’t feel so much weaker and more vulnerable than

Julien. Will there always be a giant power disparity between us
because I need his help so much? And I know nothing about him… Am I
really falling for a man who is almost a complete stranger?

Author Bio

Zack Love graduated from Harvard College, where he studied mostly literature, psychology, philosophy, and film. After college, he moved to New York City and took a corporate consulting job that had absolutely nothing to do with his studies. The attacks of September 11, 2001 inspired him to write a novelette titled “The Doorman” and heightened his interest in the Middle East. A decade later, that interest extended to the Syrian Civil War, which provided the backdrop for his latest work. In late 2013, Zack began releasing his unpublished works of fiction and became a full-time author. He has published comedy, psychological and philosophical fiction, and romance. Zack enjoys confining himself to one genre about as much as he likes trying to sum up his existence in one paragraph.

COVER REVEAL ~ Dirty Bad Savage by Jade West

Posted on

TITLE: DIRTY BAD SAVAGE

AUTHOR: JADE WEST

GENRE : EROTICA

Synopsis 3

They say Callum Jackson’s a savage.

No home. No prospects. No self-restraint.

He’s red-flagged on my system, a grade-1 aggression risk, totally off limits for a woman like me.

But the rules don’t allow for my dangerous games; they don’t bend for my twisted desires.

Callum Jackson is the most beautiful beast.

A beast I can’t stop thinking about, can’t stop wanting, can’t stop hunting…

…I just pray to God this beast bites.

Sophia Harding runs a tight ship. She may work in the dregs of housing association slums, but her patch is on the way up.

Anti-social behaviour is down, employment is on the rise, and she’s even been shortlisted for estate manager of the year.

It’s looking good. Really good. Until Callum Jackson completes his jail time and lands right back on her doorstep. 

She could do without a guy like him on her books: a failure of the system and a pain in the fucking ass.

She should tick the boxes, do her job and keep her distance – that’s what the handbook says. The handbook says no one-on-one contact, no at-risk situations, no direct confrontation of any kind.

But the handbook doesn’t know of her craving for hardcore submission.

The handbook has no fucking idea how she yearns to unleash Jackson at club Explicit, where his savage can really run wild.

The handbook doesn’t know shit…

Release Day: April 14,2015

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Series: Book 2 in Six Degrees Series Synopsis 3

One look, one moment and I was completely defenseless.

One touch, one embrace and I was utterly consumed.

One kiss, one caress and that’s all it took.

One look and thirty-four year old Parker Stone knew his life would never be the same. She called to him unlike anything ever had in his life, sparking an unbridled desire and captivating him completely.

One touch and twenty-eight year old Liz Del Rio wasn’t sure she’d be able to walk away. Experiencing a life full of disappointment and heartache, she wasn’t looking for a relationship, let alone love and all the risks that came with it. Every time life had taught her the same lesson: not to let people in because they always leave and when they leave, it leaves scars upon your soul.

One kiss sealed their fate and they knew they would never be able to live without one another.

Liz and Parker embed themselves into each other’s world. Passion burns bright and fast, but what happens when your lives are connected in ways you could have never imagined?

Secrets from Liz’s past threaten to break not only what they have, but who she is as they learn that once love is etched in stone nothing can make it crumble.
