Father & Son by Michelle Day Release Day Excerpt @ProdigalSon_1

Enjoy an excerpt from Father & Son by Michelle Day

father and son cover michelle day

Synopsis

What has happened to Paul Jensen?

He’s growing up fast, handling the challenges of his situation with the skill of a man twice his age.

He will never fit in, why should he? He’s special. Now it’s time to show the world.

With his unstoppable ambition he is taking steps to secure his financial future for himself and those around him but he struggles to do the same with the emotional side of his life.

There’s only one woman he really wants. He just has to be man enough to step up and prove to her how much he’s changed.


Excerpt

Leaning forward, Suzanne slid an embossed card across the table towards them “An invite to my twenty first.” She told them before scrambling on to the seat and hugging a very happy and completely inebriated Matt. “Happy Birthday Matty.” She kissed his cheek and ruffled his hair before turning to Paul. Grasping his hands, she pressed her lips to each of his cheeks in turn. “Happy Birthday Paul.”

“Thank you Suzie.” He murmured, his thumbs stroking the backs of her hands, he desperately wanted to cup her face in his hands and plant his mouth firmly over hers.

“I’m glad we can be friends.” She spoke, turning his blood to ice. Pulling his hands from hers, he reached for a glass and downed a shot, never taking his eyes from her.

“Yeah, right.”

Knowing she’d upset him but also knowing that the words had needed to be spoken, she backed away and went to join Tessa as she waited in the lobby. Faye grasped her chance now with both hands, having wished Matt a happy birthday and receiving a sleepy smile and a rather unexpected grope of her backside, she moved to Paul.

Sitting boldly on his lap, she grabbed a shot glass and emptied the liquid into her mouth before grasping his face and planting her mouth over his. His lips parted willingly under hers, their tongues dancing as they shared the shot and it was his turn to groan as he traced his hands up her sides.

The clearing of a throat brought them back to reality and as they parted Paul mused, not for the first time, that he could have an awful lot of fun with Faye. “Your taxi is here.” Jez told her and Paul saw that he had used his body to shield that little charade from his sister and former lover. Shooting a grateful glance at the bar manager, he moved to get up as Faye vacated her seat on his lap but soon sat back down when Jez shook his head and escorted the flushed girl to the door.

Returning to the table and now joined by the rest of the staff, the Jensen boys were again wished a very Happy Birthday as the staff helped to deplete the shots in front of them before heading to their homes.

“Come on boys, time you got some sleep.” Jez beckoned for them to follow him.

“You’re letting us stay here?” Paul questioned as he helped Matt cannon ball off the walls on the way up the stairs.

“Yep, I figured he’s far too far gone to go home.” He gestured to Matt.

Paul nodded in agreement, then stopped moving altogether, “Wait a sec, if I stay here it means I’m not even going to get laid on my birthday and I had serious fuck me vibes coming from Faye.”

“You had serious fuck me vibes coming from just about every girl in the club dude but you are working tomorrow in case you’ve forgotten so I’m protecting my investment.” Jez told him.

“In case I forget to tell you later, you’re an asshole.” Paul griped.

Father & Son by Michelle Day Release Day Blitz & Review @ProdigalSon_1

father and son cover michelle day

What has happened to Paul Jensen?
Paul is growing up fast. Taking steps to secure his financial future for himself and those around him, he struggles to do the same with the emotional side of his life. There’s only one woman he really wants. He just has to be man enough to step up and prove to her how much he’s changed.

My Review

Michelle Day has done it again.  Father & Son is the brilliant continuation of the life of Paul Jensen, the incorrigible young man from Prodigal Son, her first book in this series. Get ready to follow Paul from the moment he gets his biggest news throughout his adulthood.  The story continues right where Prodigal Son leaves off so you won’t miss a beat.

The Jensen/Paloma family members are back.  Matt, his twin brother makes several appearances in this book that will leave you stunned.  (You’ve been warned) Put it this way, Matt and Paul get into mischievous situations.  His older sister Tessa learns more about her younger brother than she may care to.   Michael, his father crosses paths with Paul as well. (No spoilers)  Uncle John is back. (I like him)  This sexy Spaniard is always there to support and back Paul up when needed. Finally, Monica, his mother, shows her elegance and grace while always supporting her son.

Carmen, the infamous teacher continues to be a part of Paul’s life.  I want to dislike her,  but I can’t say I do.  Suzie, the one and only, holds a special place in Paul’s heart.  Her appearances throughout his life continue to prove the chemistry between them is still volatile.  Paul and Suzie have a special connection.  However, getting Suzie proves to be quite a difficult task for Paul.

father and son for pic quote 2 with quotes

Paul has grown up and is ambitious in all aspects of his life.  This is one the traits I loved the most about him.  Even at such a young age, Paul has set high standards and goals for his future.  His business savvy skills earn him the respect of others.  Along the way, Paul grows into an even more handsome gentleman, one that women can’t seem to resist.

Don’t worry, Paul doesn’t disappoint any of the women he meets along the way and most certainly won’t disappoint you.  If you loved him in the first book, watch out, he gets better with age.

There are unexpected moments in this book and all of them complete this story.  Paul most definitely proves to be more than expected and really has a heart of gold.  His generosity is another quality I admire.  Again, Paul is quite the character.

This series has a special place in my reader/blogger heart.  My first review as a newbie blogger was of Prodigal Son.  I’ve been following Paul, his character ever since.  “You see Paul, you were my first.”  🙂

Congrats to Michelle on another fantastic book.  I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. I look forward to reading book 3.

 

I gave this book 5 stars!

Cover Reveal – Pressure Point by Olivia Luck @AuthorLuck

Cover Reveal

web[1]

Book Title: Pressure Point
Author: Olivia Luck
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: January 2015
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions
Follow events: Get The Book Enthusiast App

Synopsis

I know what you’re thinking. It’s unconventional to want a man nine years older than you. It’s inconvenient to crush on your dearest friend’s older brother. It’s silly to pine after a man for six years. It’s cliché to lust after a celebrity. It’s pathetic to fall in love with a man who barely knows you exist.

I know what you’re thinking because I’ve thought it all, too. And yet that hasn’t stopped me from wanting Blake Campbell. Charming, gorgeous, brilliant, kind, selfless – Blake is everything I’ve ever wanted, but he doesn’t see me that way. In fact, he hardly noticed me until one night.

Traumatic events brought us together for the first time, but then he tossed me aside. I know it’s irrational, but I wanted him up until the moment he left me lying there alone.

When his eyes finally open and he finds out I’ve left, will it be too late?

excerpt

Prologue

Some people trip over a crack in the sidewalk and meet the love of their life. Some people are walking down the street, lost in a text message when they literally stumble into their destiny. Others don’t have romance on their radar when they fall off the deep end and into the relationship that makes them whole. In other words, love finds them and not the other way around.

I’ve never been one of those people. Romantic. Dreamer. Idealist. I’ve been called them all. Those nicknames never bothered me because I knew all the way to the marrow of my bones that the love of my own life was not too far away.

In my mind, the scenario was complete.

Our eyes would meet across a crowded room.

No, that’s not right.

Let’s take it from the top.

He’d become aware of me first, unable to wrench his eyes away from my glossy back waves (thank you Italian heritage and superb genetics). They would tumble around my shoulders elegantly and I’d be wearing an outfit that elongates my short legs (stubs, as my cousins called them. Rude.).

In my mind, the moment I meet him is flawless.

Reality had a different idea.

Because when I found the man I knew I was destined to be with me, he hardly noticed me. Every time after, he saw me as nothing more than a friend to his sister. Most times we interacted he scarcely paid attention to me, if only to provide pleasantries.

Despite all that, my gut keeps telling me that I’m meant to be with him. I’m not giving up. No matter what.

Release Day Launch & Giveaway – Three Christmases by Kat & Stone Bastion @KatBastion @StoneBastion @No_Weddings

Happy Release Day to The Bastions!

The No Weddings Series is a must read series!  You will laugh, smile, get teary eyed and swoon. ~SusiThree Christmases RDL
Today is the release day launch for THREE CHRISTMASES, the fourth book in Kat and Stone Bastion’s No Weddings series.

I’m so excited about this book!

Check out the exclusive excerpt and be sure to enter the giveaway!

Stay tuned for my review of Three Christmases later in the week.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Where are you?” Cade asked.

“Your room.” After the gallery exhibit ended, I needed to be near him. But surrounded by his stuff was the closest I could get. Thank God Mase hadn’t asked when I’d shown up at their doorstep, he’d only given me an understanding look.

Cade insisted he felt better only moments ago. Then he refused to talk about his condition.

The phone was pressed to my ear, its glow, his existence, the only light in the darkness. I closed my eyes and turned slightly, pressing my nose into the pillow, inhaling deeply. Cade’s scent mixed with my heartache for him filled me with an incomparable longing. With effort, I could almost imagine him here wrapped around me. Almost.

“Where in my room?”

“Your bed.”

“I’m liking this bedtime story.” His voice deepened, turning gruff.

His primal tone sizzled an erotic charge through me and my breath caught. Then I grinned, my melancholy shattering. He did that to me. Turned me inside out on a word, a phrase, the sexy loaded undercurrent of his voice.

On a shaky exhale, I tightened my hand on the phone. The electronic tie to him was hot on my skin. He was right there with me, and at the same time, so far away. “Wish you were here. Miss you like crazy.”

“Me too, Maestro. Like you wouldn’t believe.”

“Really?” Did I voice that? My doubt about his side versus mine? “Does it hurt? Because mine does. I used to think that the good-bye was the hardest part. It’s not. Not by a long shot.”

“No,” he agreed. “It’s every moment you’re dying to share in person.”

I nodded. “The drop-ins and unexpected surprises. All the times I don’t think I’m going to see you, and then, there you are, my sexy-as-fuck dream standing in my doorway.”

A low chuckle sounded out. “Did you just call me sexy as fuck?”

My cheeks began to cramp with my huge smile. Just having him on the line was like thousand-dollar-an-hour therapy. “Maybe.”

“No, I’m definitely sure I heard it. Say it again.”

I swallowed hard and said in a low rumble, “Sexy as fuck.”

His heavy exhale sounded over the phone. “Damn, I miss you. Three more days. I will be there by Thursday night. Count on it.”

Confused about his early midweek arrival, I furrowed my brow. Then it hit me. Thursday was December 11th, my birthday. Even though I’d completely forgotten, he’d remembered. “You better. If you don’t, the rest of the CDs you abandoned here are gonna get it.”

He barked out a laugh. “What are you going to do? Take my favorites hostage?”

Alone in the dark, I narrowed my eyes, even though he couldn’t see. “Oh, no. I’m going to put your entire collection into a random shuffle.”

“You wouldn’t.”

“Try me, sexy boy. If you don’t get here on time, as promised, all this longing I feel for you will reach a breaking point. Girl needs an outlet. I’m thinking the CDs are a great start.”

He groaned. Then laughed. “Do your worst. If I am even a minute late. I’ll take my licks like a man.”

The thought of punishing him sent my mind guttering. Clearly I’d been exposed to him too long. “Oh, and how do you do it like a man?” My lips spit out the uncensored question before I could stop them.

His low growl vibrated in my ear. “Those are licks I’ll be giving you, Maestro. That’s how I do it like a man. Has it been so long that you don’t remember? I think you need intensive reeducation.”

His playfulness warmed my heart. Sparked the naughty girl inside of me to life. His naughty girl. “Maybe I do.”

He dragged his words out. “Slow, unbelievably slow. To make sure you’re paying attention.”

On a hard swallow, I buried my face into his pillow and took another deep breath. “Oh, you have my attention.”

“Teeth, dragged across skin.”

A shudder ran through me. “I like…”

“I know you do.” He paused. “Kiss after kiss, soft, teasing…”

“You’re teasing me now…”

Three Christmases Synopsis:

4-ThreeXMas_CoverAs the holiday season approaches in this fourth book in the No Weddings Series, Cade Michaelson strives to be better at balancing work and love, and Hannah Martin’s growing ability to trust is put to the test.

Lust and friendship brought us together, but with the increasing demands of my two businesses, Hannah’s thriving bakery, and our successful event-planning company, stability becomes my focus.

Then a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity takes me to the West Coast, and everything goes into a tailspin.

Laughter, love, and excitement fill our lives, but Cade refuses to settle into the wonderful bliss we’ve found—he wants spectacular fireworks and an unshakable foundation. Driven like no one I’ve ever met, Cade insists a dream job across the country will be better for our future together, but I worry about whether we can survive the present apart.

When intimate time diminishes…and lives get more hectic…

Will a little bit of faith be all that it takes? Or will the sacrifice to get there be too great?

About the Authors:

Shoe and Boot PhotoAward-winning and bestselling romance author Kat Bastion has teamed up with her husband Stone Bastion to create the new contemporary romance series No Weddings.

A few factoids about the writing team…

Kat enjoys her chocolate rich and dark, her music edgy and soul-filling, and her vacations exotic with toes dug into the sand. And she’s wildly, madly, deeply in love with Stone.

Stone likes pounding the trails on a mountain bike, vibrating the sound system with rock music, and down time spent on a stand up paddleboard. And he loves Kat wildly, madly, deeply…and then some.

Together, they’re having a blast bringing fun-filled romantic stories to life and hope you’ll join them in the exciting adventure.

Kat’s first published work, Utterly Loved, was a twentieth anniversary gift of love poems to Stone that they decided to share with the world to benefit charity. Net proceeds from Utterly Loved, and a portion of net proceeds from all their books, go toward charities involved in the fight against human trafficking.

Kat and Stone live amid the beautiful Sonoran Desert of Arizona. Visit their blog at http://www.talktotheshoe.com, website at http://www.katbastion.com, and their Twitter accounts at https://twitter.com/KatBastion and https://twitter.com/StoneBastion for more information.
