Saving Poughkeepsie

Release Day – Filthy Beautiful Lust by Kendall Ryan @KendallRyan1

November is turning out to be quite a month. There are so many amazing books releasing back to back. Here is another.

Be sure to add  Filthy Beautiful Lust to your TBR.

Go ahead and one click it today! I just did. 🙂

From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Kendall Ryan, comes the third book in the Filthy Beautiful Lies series.


Pace Drake loves sex. He knows where get it, what to say, what to do, and he makes no apologies for satisfying his needs. But when he meets single mom, Kylie Sloan, he’s enthralled by her, and begins to question his standard operating procedure. After all, there’s no chase, no mystery when banging a woman in a nightclub bathroom. Kylie’s depth and determination make the sloppy, drunken hookups that fill his weekends seem empty and shallow. She’s the opposite of the desperate, clingy women he’s used to. She doesn’t want or need anyone to take care of her and that only makes him want to care for her more.

Kylie’s trust in men has vanished. The last guy she was with played ding-dong-ditch-it with her uterus and left her with a baby to raise. Now her infant son is the only man she has time for, even if she misses sex and intimacy more than she’d ever admit. Opening her heart up to a younger man who’s best known for no-strings-attached sex and his casual lifestyle is probably the worst idea she’s ever had. But Pace wants to prove to her there are still a few good guys left, and watching the sweet way he interacts with her baby makes her want to try…but she can really trust that his days of hitting it and quitting it are in his past?

Filthy Beautiful Lust is the third book in the Filthy Beautiful Lies series, however it can be read as a standalone novel (no cliffhanger). To understand the full growth and development of the characters, it is recommended that you begin with book 1, Filthy Beautiful Lies.


CHAPTER 1
PACE
I still recall that day in the pool last summer when I’d
taken the crying baby from her and entertained him all afternoon. I couldn’t
even be sure why I’d done it. I suppose, looking back, she just looked like she
could use a hand. I’ve never liked seeing a woman struggle. Although a damsel
in distress, she is not. I get the sense she’s not the type to back down from a
challenge and has enough strength and determination to succeed at just about
anything she tried. A sexy quality, to be sure.
As we stand there, me sipping my bourbon, and Kylie grinning
politely at the crowd, the silence between us grows. I feel like we have
nothing in common, and I’m at a loss, trying to think of something to say,
anything that will keep this beauty in my presence. There are so many things I
want to know about her, but none of them are any of my goddamn business. How
she tastes, what noises she makes when she comes. I also want to know how she
ended up a single mother, and if Max’s dad is still in the picture. I tried
asking Colton about it once, but he remained incredibly vague. The asshat. If
there was a worst wingman award, it would go to my brother.
“Have dinner with me this week,” I say. It wasn’t
what I’d been planning to say, but once the words leave my mouth, they feel
right.
“Pace, that’s sweet of you to ask, but I can’t…”
She pauses, like she wants to say more, but doesn’t. Her body language is all
wrong too. Where women are normally vying to get closer, placing their hand on
my bicep, or even brushing their breasts against my arm, Kylie stands straight
and tall, like she wants to avoid physical contact at all costs.
“Are you here with someone?” I ask. It’s also
absolutely none of my business, but I’d happily shell out ten grand just to
find out if she’s fucking someone.
“No,” she confirms.
“No boyfriend?” I press further. I need to know
what I’m up against.
“There’s been no one since Max’s father,” she says
quietly.
My inner alpha male beats on his chest in triumph.
“That’s quite a dry spell.”
“Indeed,” she murmurs.
“It’s just dinner, Kylie. It’s not like I’m offering to
step in and play daddy.” I treat her to a playful, crooked smile, my
dimple out in full force. I’ve heard it’s quite irresistible and that’s what
I’m banking on.
“That’s exactly why I can’t. I’m sorry.”
Fuck. Why am I such a fucking idiot?
“Oh,” I stammer, at a loss for words for the first
damn time in my life. Christ. Grow a pair, Pace.
“Besides, something tells me if you’re interested in a
woman like that,” Kylie tips her chin toward the bar where Sheena, or
Trina, is making a spectacle of herself, “you can’t possibly be interested
in a woman like me.”
Hold the fuck on. Now that’s where she’s wrong. “Why’s
that?” I ask, meeting her fiery green gaze. If she’s about to criticize
herself, I will not hold back in proving to her how very wrong she is.
“Pace,” she admonishes. “Look at her. They
look…inflatable.”
When I realize she’s not tearing herself down, but instead
chastising my taste in women, I almost want to laugh. “A woman like that
is good for only one thing and we both know it,” I say.
She raises her eyebrows, waiting for me to explain.
“One good fuck,” I continue.
“You’re crass.” Her eyes light up, and her mouth
twitches in an attempt not to smile.
“I’m direct, and you like it.”
She shrugs. “At least you’re honest. That’s more than I
can say for most men.”
“Go out with me. One time, Kylie. What do you have to
lose?”
I can practically see the wheels turning in her head, and for
one brief, beautiful moment I think I might have a chance. “Bye
Pace.” She turns and walks away, her long legs carrying her across the
room while my heart throbs.
Fuck.
“Kylie, wait.”
She turns and tosses me a sexy wink. “Go have fun with
Malibu Barbie.
This is not over.

I play to win.

~ Synopsis ~

Mercy hasn’t had an easy life and has just escaped her sadistic and sociopathic ex-boyfriend Alex. Fearing the repercussions she’ll face if he finds her, she flees Florida leaving behind everything and everyone in exchange for a new beginning.

Aiden lost his submissive and fiancée one year ago to a random act of violence. Adrift, he believes seeing the criminals brought to justice is what he needs to start living again.

When Mercy Winters shows up at Aiden’s company, sent by the temp agency to fill a receptionist position, their instant attraction has sparks flying, surprising them both. While Aiden is prepared to hold on to the first woman to turn his head over the last year, Mercy would just as well run in the other direction.

After Aiden manipulates the circumstances of her employment Mercy has no choice but to confide in her hot new boss. Aiden’s more than willing to help with ANYTHING she needs, while Mercy is more than willing to give up her body in order to experience the intense pleasure only Aiden can provide. But in return he wants everything, body, heart and soul. Can she even consider his offer and keep one step ahead of Alex?

~ Excerpts ~

The window behind her gave a spectacular view. How appropriate he thought, to be a full moon tonight, the apex of one of nature’s unstoppable cycles. More or less fifteen days ago the new moon was born to culminate in the spectacle tonight. Light spilled into the ink like darkness, guiding the way, holding out a glitter of hope for those unfortunate enough to find themselves in night’s somber embrace. For him, Mercy was that light.

FullMoon-300x300

Reluctant to leave the room he turned, the candles still burning in his lair needed tending to. With a glance back over his shoulder at her resting form he knew he was falling hard for Mercy Winters, harder than he thought possible. Her submission under the circumstances… her trust… so fucking sweet. A shocking realization hit him, he would go to any length to keep this woman safe, to make sure she never had to run again. What did that say about his feelings? Doubt crept in, was it even possible? After only a week? The tightness in his chest said yes, his mind wasn’t so sure. He’d already bound her to him by his collar, and had taken her bareback marking her as his with his seed, but this feeling, this one now felt very close to love. His hand rubbed at his chest subconsciously, he didn’t know how to mark her with that.

Candles Burning

The words scorched her, rekindling the desire simmering beneath her skin hotter than ever. His detailing the possession of each part of her body, and his intention to devour and claim, to worship and cherish, melted the protection she carefully erected around her heart. She wanted the connection with him now, for him to take from her everything she offered, to lose herself to the blistering pleasure only he showed her.

Father & Son Pre-Order and Prodigal Son Flashback @ProdigalSon_1 by Michelle Day

November is flying by and in just 14 more days you will have your hands on Paul N. Jensen again.

ps paul for blog

In case you haven’t met this bad boy, I’ve decided to introduce him to you.

Paul is the main character in Prodigal Son, Book 1 of The Jensen Family Series written by Michelle Day. Book 2, Father & Son will be released on November 20, 2014.  The story of Paul continues.  Let me just say, I’ve read the ARC and loved it.  Paul gets better with age.

father and son cover michelle day

Release Day – November 20, 2014

 Synopsis – Father & Son

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.


Here is my review for Prodigal Son as well as my interview with Paul.  (thanks to Bookish Temptations)

I think you will enjoy reading this series.  If you haven’t read Prodigal Son, you must. Read it before Father & Son is released.

ps updated cover

Synopsis – Prodigal Son

Paul Jensen’s problems started the day he was born.  The image of his mother, unlike his twin and older sister, he never quite fit the Jensen family mold.  A difficult baby, a problem child and a troublesome teen, Paul was the quintessential black sheep.  His father’s abusive disapproval and rejection doesn’t bring him down.  It only serves to turn him into a willful, and incredibly determined young man.  With his mother’s Latin looks and the charm British prince, he is a danger to women everywhere. Paul Jensen won’t take no for an answer and his rebellion is about to get really out of control.

Synopsis

Life sometimes gives you a fork in the road and doesn’t give you a hint of which direction to take. There’s no signs, no arrows, no neon lights to help. Luckily, Samantha Beckman chose the right path years ago and escaped from the horrors of her childhood. Along with her best friend, Jess, she lives a wonderful life—happy and carefree just as any twenty six year old should.

Opportunity arises when Samantha lands the job of a lifetime as the COO’s executive assistant for North Carolina’s leading corporation, Weston Company.

Yet, not everything is as it seems. Samantha soon learns Mr. Eye Candy from the elevator isn’t who he says he is, the sexy construction worker isn’t what she thought he was, and don’t forget about her new unwanted and clever stalker. Maybe her life isn’t as simple as she hoped it would be.

Caught in the sights of two men and a stalker, Samantha is forced to decide between flight and fight, fear over strength. Will she be able to take the right path again, or has her luck finally run out?

New independent author, TC Matson, loves to let her characters voices be heard. With a head full of stories, she puts her keyboard through a beating daily.

She is an avid reader and is known to devour books within hours. As a romance junkie, Matson sets her sights to try to find stories that are relatable and real. She’s not a fan of vampires, fairies, or any other out of this world fiction stories. And understanding that love isn’t always instant and full of flowers…her writing mirrors it.

Matson resides in the peaceful piedmont area of North Carolina with her husband and three boys where she stays hopped up on caffeine and chasing children. She has a relatively normal life managing her home, or as she calls it, her looney bin. Chaos is indefinite and a sense of humor is absolutely a must.
