Nina West's WOLF PREY Review & Excerpt Tour



EXCERPT ONE:
              “We’ll keep in touch.”
              I can’t help the frown. Keep in touch? That sounds like something casual friends say.
              “Hey.” He grips my chin between his thumb and index finger. “This isn’t going to be easy, Abbi I warned you. We lead very different lives, and right now, you’re stuck here. You could be stuck here for a long time.” He softens that reality by drawing the pad of his thumb across the bottom of my lip.
              He’s right. That tractor that rolled over Daddy did a real number on him, breaking bones and puncturing his lung. It could have been much worse but, still, it’s going to be months before he’s back on his feet and running the farm. “I know, it’s just…” I settle my gaze on his steely blue eyes, still amazed at how they can sometimes look so cold and hard, and yet other times melt my heart with their softness and their warmth. “What is this? What are we?”
              Henry officially fired me this morning, more a joke than anything. I left so abruptly that I hadn’t had the opportunity to hand in my resignation, but it was pretty clear I was quitting anyway. Either way, I’m no longer a Wolf employee, which means that dating me isn’t against company policy. Even though Henry would say he can do whatever the hell he wants now that he has controlling share, I think it would still bother him to be so blatantly and openly disregarding of his own corporate rules. He has a lot of pride in the Wolf name.
              He sighs. “We’ll figure things out as we go. You need to get in there and spend time with your family. And I need to get back to doing what I need to do. Okay?”
              “Okay.” I know Henry enough to know that’s as far as this conversation is going. I nod. Do I need an official label for what we are? Or is it just enough to know Henry’s in my life? That he cares about me. Because I know he does. He dropped everything to fly across the country with me because he didn’t want me sitting in a plane for ten hours alone, given the tragedy. He’s gone out of his way to make sure my dad has the best trauma surgeon in the country and that my family is set up in his hotel while we’re here. He’s been carrying around a picture of me—the one the Japanese photographer Hachiro took that day so long ago—in his portfolio.
              I know he cares.
              The question is, will it be enough?

EXCERPT TWO (SEXY):
              I reach for the iPad, pulling it up to my face, just the tops of my breasts visible to him now. “It’s your turn now.”
              “You’re right, it is,” he says so calmly. “And you like to watch, don’t you?”
              “Yes.” I love to watch. I love seeing Henry undress. I love seeing him naked. I love seeing his erection, long and thick and sliding through his fist.
              He reaches back over his head to pull his t-shirt off. That perfect, cut body is beneath, his shoulders strong and rounded, his collarbone jutting out. If he were here in front of me, I’d be running my hands along the curves of his biceps right now.
              I bite my bottom lip, waiting impatiently as he unfastens his belt with leisurely fingers.
              My nipples begin to pebble again as he draws his zipper down, allowing me the first glimpse of his erection beneath, stretching against his gray boxer briefs, desperate to get out. I can even see the wet spots where his precum dampened the cotton.
              I won’t be able to resist touching myself again before long.
              He slides his hand down past the elastic band and I sit up to watch as it curls around his length, the lightest sigh escaping my lips. And then he smirks. It’s a wicked smirk. “Good night, Abbi.”
              The connection cuts off.
              I just stare at the screen. Did he just…?
              I fall back into my pillow with a groan. That son of a bitch. Grabbing my phone, I text him.
                             Please call me back.
              It takes hours for me to fall asleep that night, with no message from Henry.

ABOUT WOLF PREY (Wolf Cove #3):

Forced to leave Alaska to run the family farm while her father recovers from a tragic accident, Abbi heads home knowing she has the one thing she wants most again –Henry’s affections. She’s determined to not let anyone get in the way of that again.

But love for Abbi has never been easy.

With an overbearing mother who believes she has the right to approve who her daughter loves, a childhood ex-boyfriend who will do anything to win her back, and a wealthy, handsome boyfriend who always gets what he wants, Abbi soon realizes she may have to make some impossible choices.

Wolf Prey is Book 3 in the Wolf Cove series and should be read after finishing Wolf Bait (Book 1) and Wolf Bite (Book 2).

Darkest Before Dawn by Stevie J Cole: BLOG TOUR & REVIEW



“Dark, gritty and utterly captivating. I couldn’t put this book down!” - USA Today Bestselling Author, Natasha Knight

Blurb:

Sixty-four days in captivity. Sixty-four days to lose yourself—or find yourself.

I’m Ava Donovan. I was abducted at the age of nineteen. I’m told I’m a survivor, but the truth is, I only survived because he saved me. Even when he kept me locked in that room—he saved me.
Constantly wondering when and how you will die, that does something to you. To your mind. But what do you do when it does something to your heart? What do you do when the man holding you captive seems just as broken as you are, when his mere presence becomes a comfort you crave—when you love him even though you shouldn’t?

You smile and tell yourself it’s okay because love has no morals.
Sixty-four days in captivity gave me a love most people will never have and my freedom took it all away.

Summer's Landing is a new series about a more mature Summer Jones who is now 28 and working as a surgeon in Los Angeles. She was engaged to her long-time love, but now life is about to change with her fiance hovering between life and death.

I Can. Not. Believe. It.

Another tragedy. Another death. Now the man I am set to marry...the man I want to marry is hovering between life and death.

He's there to help me...And I'm there too. Somehow the answers are there...at Summer's Landing.

EXCERPT

“Believe me, only women with the IQ of a bunny would fall for that. Any women with any sense of dignity would never fall for that. At least, not twice.” I never fell for Drew’s ‘hey ladies look at me, I’m so hot’ line, didn’t I? Instead I fell for the sweet sensitive and passionate man that was always there to hold me and be there for me. That was the Drew I fell for, not this guy, whoever he was.
“Boy, Nat sure got himself a feisty one, didn’t he?” Drew said under his breath.
“I may be feisty and smart, but I can still please any man of mine in bed like a girl from the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” I said.
Drew laughed. “I’d like to see that!”
You have. When I used to get dressed up in nothing but lace and garter belts, and tie you up in silk stockings while I made you whimper in need for me with just one touch of my feather wand.
“You got more to you than you seem, Summer,” Drew said.
“You betcha,” I said. “I also happen to know there is something my man truly can’t resist and it gets to him all the time…”
“What?” Drew asked, his eyes now taking me in from head to toe.
“Two words,” I said looking into his eyes.
He licked his lips. “What?”
          “One…Feather.  And two…Wand.”

BLACK SHEEP: RELEASE DAY BLITZ

BLACK SHEEP IS LIVE!!


Ever since the day I was dropped at her family’s door
HUNGRY, DIRTY, and TORN,
I’ve wanted her.
But to taint her perfect skin with my black touch would be a SIN.
So I made a pact with myself—
NEVER TOUCH NICOLE PALMER.
However, when she returns home from college, she’s different, and I’m not sure I can trust myself to keep my pact. I can’t submit to her TEMPTATION no matter how sweetly she begs because she’s the GOLDEN CHILD and I’m the BLACK SHEEP.

HEAVEN AND HELL.
I’d crossed the holy pinnacle and entered a place full of softness, light, and beauty, but while her hands on my skin felt like a miracle, I also felt like my flesh was being ripped from my body. Irrational fear struck me deep.
Nicole would never hurt me—at least not physically. Mentally, she’d fucked me up over the last seven years, but she didn’t know she was doing it.
Still, her mouth was heaven, and the devil didn’t belong in Heaven—I didn’t belong in Paradise. I knew that, but my brain ceased all functions the minute my lips touched hers. I was beyond all rational thinking.
My lips brushed against hers.
Once.
Twice.
Before I moved in for more, losing myself in her so completely, I forgot about her hands on me. I forgot she was touching my scars inside and out—soothing them and breaking them open again all at the same time. Her lips made me forget all the promises I’d made to myself over the years—made me forget about the pact I’d made with myself.
Never touch Nicole Palmer.
Each strike of her hot breath against my cheek was like an electric shock to my body, and I couldn’t hold myself back any longer. Her frame felt even smaller than it looked in my grasp when I wrapped my arms around her and pulled her to me. She was soft against my hardness, limp in my arms as she let go with me.
I’d never felt anything like it. Usually, I pinned a girl’s arms above her head to keep her from touching me. Typically, I took control and remained in power, but when my tongue met hers, everything inside me exploded.
Her soft, cautious touch changed, and she clawed at me like a wildcat, tugging at my shirt and pulling me to her as if she couldn’t get close enough.
She couldn’t.
She’d never be close enough.
And while her sudden movements and touches were freaking me out, I wanted more.
I wanted to feel her all around me—beneath me—inside me, lighting all the dark places where I hid my feelings for her—all the dark places where the memories and monsters lived.
Her fingers no longer scared me … they fueled me, forcing my black memories to the forefront and allowing her to slowly destroy each one. She took away the pain and cleared my mind in the strangest, most shocking way.
She tasted like sugar, like melted candy on my tongue as I savored her. My craving for her, the one I’d tamed over the years, grew, as I pulled her to me and thrust my hips. Seeking relief, I rubbed against her, her body feeling better than anything I’d ever felt … even with our clothes between us.
I wanted her.
Hell, I’d always wanted her.
Over the years, in my mind, every girl I’d climbed inside had been Nicole.
My Nicole.
The only girl to ever tame me, and she was clueless about it.
She was leaving me, and I wasn’t taking it well. I hadn’t been okay with the situation since the day she got her acceptance letter to Juilliard. She was a beautiful dancer, one with grace and limbs that went for days, but knowing she was going to New York alone left a sick feeling in my gut.
I couldn’t be there for her. I couldn’t protect her from the sick and demented fucks in the world. I’d go wild thinking about the terrible things that could happen to her while she was hundreds of miles away from me. And while I knew how badly she wanted Juilliard, I also knew how badly I wanted her. How badly the desire to keep her safe burned through me on a daily basis.
She reached between us, palming me through my jeans. Stopping my thoughts completely, her touch caused me to release an agonizing growl into her mouth. I’d had women … too many, actually, but none of them had ever touched me this way. Their fingers had never graced my dick, no matter how badly I wanted it. My mind would never allow it.
It was different with Nicole.
It had always been different with her.
My fingers covered hers, pressing her palm harder against me as I thrust myself into her hand, seeking what I knew I could never have with her. Every second I touched her, I darkened her with my shadowed sin.
Clarity broke through my lust and slammed into me. Tension crawled down my back, tightening my spine and making my entire body stiffen.
It was wrong.
Everything we were doing was wrong.
Her mother and father had taken me in, made me a part of their perfect family, and given me a life I would’ve never gotten without them. If it weren’t for them, I would’ve grown up on the streets, begging for food with only the clothes on my back, and this was how I was repaying them.
By touching their only daughter.
By tainting her with my blackness.
The broken sickness I was born with could be contagious, and the last thing I ever wanted to do was pass it to her—contaminate her perfection. If I ever climbed inside her, she’d never be the same. Her light … I’d extinguish it, bringing her into my darkness. That was the last thing I wanted since Nicole’s light had always been a beacon for me, leading me to do the right thing when the right thing was the last thing I wanted to do.
Bad decisions were in my blood—passed down from a father who ruined me—and touching Nicole was the worst decision I’d ever made. The addiction was instant, and I knew one day I’d overdose on her. Just like my father and his heroin except with more pleasure and more pain.
I pulled back, my body and heart feeling her loss the second I pushed her away.
“Fuck!” I cursed, as I gasped and rubbed roughly at my lips, trying to rid myself of her taste.
I’d never be able to walk away with her flavor on my lips. My craving would never let it happen.
She moved toward me, and I held my hand out to keep her away. I was too weak for her. I’d always been too weak for her.
Her big blue eyes stared up at me, full of trust and lust. Her white blond hair spilled from her bun, curtaining her beautiful face and skimming her flawless skin. She was everything, and I was nothing. The two could never mix.
Rage and disgust slammed into me.
How could I touch her?
How could I taint her perfection with my sin?
“That shouldn’t have happened,” I breathed, trying to catch the air she’d stolen away from me.
“Why not?” she asked, her cheeks flushed and her lips reddened from my rough kisses.
I hated myself for marring her delicate flesh with my touch. She was too good, too perfect for anyone, especially me.
“Because I don’t want you that way!” I yelled, not thinking of who else could hear our conversation.
It was the biggest fucking lie I’d ever told...

Blurb
From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Money or love? Which would you choose? 

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it's an easy decision.

For me, it's not. Did I mention it's a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Then, he left.

I thought I'd never see him again.

But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter's reputation were never far behind.

I didn't know what to believe.

But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.

At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.
