Figures.

It was the gorgeous guy I’d seen in the elevator. And here I thought we’d had a little spark.

Bennett Fox grinned like he’d already been named my boss and extended his hand. “Welcome to Foster Burnett.”

Ugh. He wasn’t just good looking; he knew it, too.

“That would be Foster, Burnett and Wren, as of a few weeks ago, right?” I iced my subtle reminder that this was now our place of employment with a smile, suddenly thankful my parents had made me wear braces until I was nearly sixteen.

“Of course.” My new nemesis smiled just as brightly. Apparently, his parents had sprung for orthodontic care, too.

Bennett Fox was also tall. I once read an article that said the average height of a man in the US was five-foot-nine-and-a-half inches; less than fifteen percent of men stood taller than six feet. Yet the average height of more than sixty-eight percent of Fortune 500 CEOs was over six feet. Subconsciously, we related size to power in more ways than just brawn.

Andrew was six foot two. I’d guess this guy was about the same.

Bennett pulled out the guest chair next to him. “Please, have a seat.”

Tall and with gentlemanly manners. I disliked him already.

During the ensuing twenty-minute pep talk given by Jonas Stern—in which he attempted to convince us we weren’t vying for the same position, but instead forging the way as leaders of the now-largest ad agency in the United States—I stole glances at Bennett Fox.

Shoes: definitely expensive. Conservative, Oxford in style, but with a modern edge of topstitching. Ferragamo would be my guess. Big feet, too.

Suit: dark navy, tailored to fit his tall, broad frame. The kind of understated luxury that said he had money, but didn’t need to flaunt it to impress you.

He had one long leg casually crossed over the other knee, as if we were discussing the weather rather than being told everything we’d worked twelve hours a day, six days a week for was suddenly at risk of being in vain.

At one point, Jonas had said something we both agreed with, and we looked at each other, nodding. Given the opportunity for a closer inspection, my eyes roamed his handsome face. Strong jaw, daringly straight, perfect nose—the type of bone structure passed down from generation to generation that was better and more useful than any monetary inheritance. But his eyes were the showstopper: a deep, penetrating green that popped from his smooth, tanned skin. Those were currently staring right at me.

I looked away, returning my attention to Jonas. “So what happens at the end of the ninety-day integration period? Will there be two Creative Directors of West Coast Marketing?”

Jonas looked back and forth between us and sighed. “No. But no one is going to lose his or her job. I was just about to tell Bennett the news. Rob Gatts announced he’ll be retiring in a few months. So there will be a position opening up for a creative director to replace him.”

I had no idea what that meant. But apparently, Bennett did.

“So one of us gets shipped off to Dallas to replace Rob in the southwest region?” he asked.

Jonas’s face told me Bennett wouldn’t be happy about the prospect of heading to Texas. “Yes.”

All three of us let that sink in for a moment. The possibility of having to relocate to Texas shifted my mind back into gear, though.

“Who will make the decision?” I asked. “Because obviously you’ve been working with Bennett…”

Jonas shook his head and waved off what I was beginning to question. “Decisions like this—where two senior management positions are being merged into one office—the board will oversee and make the final determination of who gets first pick.”

Bennett was just as confused as me. “The board members don’t work with us on a daily basis.”

“No, they don’t. So they’ve come up with a method of making their decision.”

“Which is?”

“It’ll be based on three major client pitches. You’ll both come up with campaigns on your own and present them. The clients will pick which they like best.”

Bennett looked rattled for the first time. His perfect composure and self-assuredness took a hit as he leaned forward and raked long fingers through his hair.

“You’ve got to be kidding me. More than ten years, and my job here comes down to a few pitches? I’ve landed half-a-billion dollars of ad accounts for this company.”

“I’m sorry, Bennett. I really am. But one of the conditions of the Wren merger was that due consideration be given to the Wren employees in positions that might be eliminated because of duplicity. The deal almost didn’t go through because Mrs. Wren was so insistent that she not sell her husband’s company, only to have the new organization strip away all of Wren’s hard-working employees.”

That made me smile. Mr. Wren was taking care of his employees even after he was gone.

“I’m up for the challenge.” I looked at Bennett, who was clearly pissed off. “May the best woman win.”

He scowled. “You mean man.”

We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of We Shouldn’t!

SYNOPSIS:

Bennett Fox walked into my life on one hell of a crappy Monday morning.

I was late for the first day at my new job—a job I’d now have to compete for even though I’d already worked eight years to earn it, because of an unexpected merger.

While I lugged my belongings up to my new office, a meter maid wrote me a parking summons.

She’d ticketed a long line of cars—except for the Audi parked in front of me, which happened to be the same make and model as mine.

Annoyed, I decided to regift my ticket to the car that had evaded a fine. Chances were, the owner would pay it and be none the wiser.

Except, I accidentally broke the windshield wiper while slipping the ticket onto the car’s window.

Seriously, my day couldn’t get any worse.

Things started to perk up when I ran into a gorgeous man in the elevator. We had one of those brief moments that only happened in movies.

You know the deal…your body lights up, fireworks go off, and the air around you crackles with electricity.

His heated stare left me flush when I stepped off the elevator.

Maybe things here wouldn’t be so bad after all.

Or so I thought.

Until I walked into my new boss’s office and met my competition.

The gorgeous man from the elevator was now my nemesis. His heated stare wasn’t because of any mutual attraction. It was because he’d saw me vandalize his car. And now he couldn’t wait to annihilate his rival.

There’s a fine line between love and hate—and we shouldn’t cross it.

We shouldn’t—but straddling that line could be so much fun.

Review: L.K. Shaw’s Black Light: Possession

Since my first Black Light novel, (theoretically Livia Grant’s Infamous Love, but Black Light: Rocked might hold this title), I’ve been hooked. Initially, it had more to do with the triad of Chase, Jaxon, and Emma. I have a dirty little interest in MMF romances (partly because I don’t understand how they truly work in practice…not judging). However, in reading these books, you are drawn into the individual characters who frequent Black Light, a BDSM club. The way that individual authors (yes, there is some oversight of these authors) create the stories and twine them into other authors’ stories in the series intrigues me. I love when characters from other stories play into the existing story/book. This is the case with the Black Light series.

We are now in Season 2 of the Black Light series, and L.K. Shaw’s book, Black Light: Possession, is the most recent fare. I received an ARC of it for an honest review.

With this book, we find ourselves back in D.C. at the original Black Light. The latter part of Season 1 found us in the newest version of it in LA. And I loved going back to the original in this book. It feels like going home again. This time around, we meet Joseph, Nathaniel, and Madeline. Joseph and Nathaniel work together at the FBI. They are equal parts “yin and yang” with Joseph as the tender, but stern dominant and Nathaniel as more brash and unemotional. They are Doms together, searching for their perfect submissive. They are looking for an amazing night at Black Light, but they are also looking for a life-long partner to fulfill their triad. Madeline has recently moved to DC, as a way to escape a stalker and find a fresh new start after a disappointing break-up with her former Dom. She simply needs something new. Her friend, Gareth, is a DM at Black Light, and he introduces her to this new club. From the beginning, she is enthralled. This is further escalated when she meets Joseph and Nathaniel on her first night. From the start, the chemistry between the three is fire, so much so that Joseph knows that Madeline is “the one” for him and Nathaniel. However, they need to explore the relationship further before fully committing to it.

A few days after her evening at Black Light, it becomes apparent that Madeline’s stalker has followed her to DC. The letters she receives from the stalker match similar letters in a case that Joseph and Nathaniel are working related to a serial killer. On investigating the letter, they realize the Madeline is the intended target. Very quickly, the relationship between the three becomes about protecting Madeline at all costs. Will they realize a life-long commitment, or is Madeline in danger of losing her life? You need to read this book.

What I love most about L.K. Shaw’s book is the ease of the relationship of the characters. There is no dawdling in moving these characters together. They meet on the first night at Black Light, and they spend the rest of their time together in the story. There is no angst about their “throupling.” Instead, the serial killer and stalker investigation play a large part in their story. This is THE strife to their relationship. Madeline is a good submissive. She doesn’t push back on Joseph and Nathaniel very much, so they can love her easily. Also, the “time between the sheets” with these three will leave you fanning yourself.

Even more, Nathaniel, who carries some emotional baggage from his youth, undergoes a change due to this burgeoning relationship. I personally love, in a romance, when characters who are seemingly closed off emotionally bloom feelings because they are loved fully. Reading the emotional softening of Nathaniel in this story adds another layer to it.

I enjoyed these characters and their relationship. Even more, it felt like “old home” week at Black Light. If you haven’t read this series, and you like BDSM elements in your romance, then you should read this series and this book. It is indeed worthy of your time.

Overall:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

In love and romance,

Professor A

Happy Cover Reveal and Blurb Day! Karina Halle’s My Life in Shambles

my-life-in-shambles-print-for-web
When Valerie Stephens made the resolution to say yes to new adventures, she never thought she’d end up in the tiny town of Shambles, fake engaged to one of Ireland’s top rugby players. But there’s a first time for everything.

They say bad things happen in threes.

After my boyfriend broke off our engagement, I lost my apartment and was laid off from my job, I can definitely attest to that.

They also say life is what happens when you say yes to new adventures.

So when my two sisters invited me to ring in the new year in Ireland, I decided to throw all caution to the wind and go for it. I was going to let “saying yes” be my new resolution.

Little did I know I’d spend New Year’s Eve having a hot and dirty one-night stand with Padraig McCarthy, one hell of a sexy Irishman. I also didn’t know that the brooding and intense sex god was one of Ireland’s top rugby players.

A rugby player with a proposition for me:

Come with him to his tiny hometown of Shambles and pretend to be his fiancé for a few days, just so that his ailing father can have some peace of mind.

It sounded simple enough.

It was anything but.

Not when a town gets up in your business, not when the media hunts you down, not when your past comes back in the picture, not when there are real hearts and feelings at stake.

Not when there are secrets that could break you.

They say life is what happens when you say yes to new adventures.

This is my life in Shambles.

This is a full-length contemporary standalone romance.

LUCIAN

Sabrina Montgomery is the sweetest pain in the ass I’ve ever met.

I know what she’s doing, entrapping me in all her sultriness.

But I won’t let her.

This isn’t a game that she can win and she damn well knows it.

But there’s something about this woman that makes me lose control

And I’m not about to give it up that easily.

She’s about to get a rude awakening that will put her on her knees,

Whether she’s willing to or not


SABRINA

Lucian Steele is my cross to bear.

I’ve been the Board’s liaison to him for the last five years,

The job entails having to convince him to do what they want.

They chose me mostly because no one else can handle the beast of a man.

He’s aggravating in the most attractive way,

Yet I can’t seem to stop thinking of him.

If only he knew just how much I liked him,

Maybe then he’d realize I’d do anything to protect him.

Beautiful Betrayal: Ravenhead Series #2
 
 
 
 
 
 
Author Crimson Syn was born and raised in New York City to two wonderfully witty and loving Colombian parents who have only shown their support for her throughout the years.
She started writing at the age of sixteen as an outlet for being bullied in high school. It’s probably the best thing she’s ever done in my life.
 
The first romance she ever read was Stephanie Laurens’ Devil’s Bride and since then she has been influenced by dozens of flourishing romance authors and even more dashing and daring rogues. Authors like Mary Balogh, Elizabeth Hoyt, Lisa Kleypas, Bertrice Small or A.N. Roquelaure’s Sleeping Beauty trilogy were her sweet introductions to erotic romance and have inspired her to this day.
 
So here she is, after reading so many wonderful stories and living out so many fantasies, she now has too many sinful tales of her own not to share. Her alphas are rough and possessive, and her wicked pen delves into any little niche of kinkiness that will fulfil your reading pleasure. Her heroines are independent, bright women with lots of sexy curves who know how to handle these naughty boys.
 
She had delightfully wicked teachers growing up, their books took her to new worlds and brought her new loves. So, she wants to do the same for you. She wants to indulge her readers in those steamy reads that will send you into the arms of dangerous alphas and deliciously sexy rogues without leaving the confines of your nice warm beds. If she is able to entice your inner goddesses, then she has done her job and she is satisfied.
 
Her Hellbound Lovers series is one of the proudest moments in her life. Wolf was her first published work and she has to say he’s opened so many amazing doors for her, and publishing him has taught her that if you set your mind to something you can accomplish anything.
 
She writes her characters and stories for you, her lovely readers, and she hopes she can take you away to those page turning, lip biting, bookmarking passionate tales.

Can you believe the size of it? It’s just so big, so thick, so out there…
Rumor is it’s named and trademarked. How cocky can the man be?
 
Parker Kent is the latest craze. He’s stupid hot. Women fall at his feet. Men want to be him. Fourteen-foot-high billboards of him in his Calvin Kleins cause automobile accidents daily.
He’s like Nickelback or the Kardashians. We claim to love to hate them, but secretly… As much as I’m ashamed to admit it, I’m not immune to his… charm.
But that was my guilty pleasure to keep to myself. The closest I figured I’d ever get to him was the billboard near my apartment.
Now he’s asking me to get on my knees and assess his bulge for insurance purposes.
Are the rumors true? I guess I’m about to find out.


 

 
 

 

 

 
 
 
 
Misti Murphy is a sadistic b*tch who loves to emotionally torture fictional people. If she did that in real life she’d probably end up in prison or a psych ward so she prefers to create dirty talking alphas and the sexually frustrated women who fall into their beds. And if someone needs to be smacked upside the head before f*cking turns to love then that makes her very happy indeed. 


She’s a huge believer in flaws making us human, and that not everyone likes bacon. She’s also addicted to chocolate and scared of the effects of the coming shortage. She swears like a f*cking trooper, and thinks that graphic smuttiness should be as real in fiction as it is in real life. 

 
When she’s not writing she’s the perfect housewife and mother. Ha bloody ha! When she’s not writing she’s hiding in a cupboard with her kindle, scoffing chocolate, and stalking facebook.
