Synopsis:

Amy Norton is on a mission to prove herself as an Investigative Journalist, but her over-protective father hires a bodyguard to accompany her during her investigative work, and she’s furious. Things only get worse when she realizes the bodyguard is the guy she mistakenly approached on a blind date the night before. She was all over the man and embarrassed herself, big time. The last thing she wants is to have him obstructing her investigation, gorgeous though he is.Undercover Investigator, Sebastian Armitage, is amused and fascinated by the situation and sets out to charm the pants off the hot-headed Ms Norton. She is one sexy lady, and he wants her. Before long they embark on a red-hot affair, but how is Sebastian going to point out that she’s going about investigative work the wrong way, while keeping her sweet?

 

Review:

Seems Amy is the master at finding herself in funny and embarrassing situations. The first one being after she agrees to go on a blind date with a contact of hers, Roger. Seems fate had other plans and most definitely wanted her to be put into the path of Sebastian instead. Not that he minded one bit.

It all starts with Amy wanting to do an investigation piece – a way to prove herself as a real journalist – on a missing Ghost Hunter show presenter. Gossip puts possible occult reasons at play but Amy wants to find the truth for a scoop of her own. Working at her fathers company has its drawbacks as she feels she has to work twice as hard to be seen as competent. She doesn’t want any favoritism, just wants to prove herself a good journalist. Hopefully this big break will give her that, well if she cracks it that is. Seems her father has a few stipulations for her though. The first one being whom she has to answer to she can deal with but the second one not so much. Seems he thinks she needs a minder/bodyguard on this case. She doesn’t want a minder or to be slowed down because of one but reluctantly agrees figuring it can’ be too bad. Well that’s what she was thinking until he walked through the door and she realized she’d meet him the night before in a bit of an embarrassing way. Seems she was getting flirty with a contact of hers over the phone and when he asked to meet her for some no-strings fun she (along with her boss giving big thumbs up) agrees to go along for her first blind date. I think you can imagine what might happen next. Starts with a comical fall into a lap, goes straight into the whole banter as if she’s known him a while and finishes off by saying she can’t wait for some no strings fun. When realizes she’s with the wrong guy though, mainly because she spots the correct one further down the bar, she just makes a run for it. New shoes got her into trouble and she’s hoping they won’t stop her escape. Seems Sebastian isn’t so keen to let her disappear without a trace though and goes up to the guy in question to subtly ask about whom he’s waiting for. Gets a pleasant surprise the next day when he finds out she’s the daughter of the guy who hired his firm for a bodyguard duty. Not something he usually does anymore as he tends to stick to the investigation side of his firm but fate again seems to have put them in each other’s paths so he’s not going to knock it.

Embarrassment aside its soon a fun road trip ahead with possible ghostly tales along the way. Seems Amy is a bit of a scaredy-cat and drama queen rolled into one. When she feels betrayed she just goes full speed ahead into attack mode but soon starts to realize that’s not the best way to act. The mystery of Quentin takes more of a back seat throughout as the story revolves more on the connection slowly building between Amy and Sebastian and the situations they find themselves in. The sexual tension is seen a mile off and its not long before the no strings deal is back on the table. Fan me down how hot were they together! More of a steamy romance read than mystery solving. Even though that’s still in play its really just a means to an end to get the pair of them somewhere alone together. Comical and spicy read throughout so all good fun though. One thing you learn straight off is that she doesn’t like being lied to or feeling like she’s been played. Something Sebastian should really take note of since he hides the fact he’s not really just a bodyguard. Can their ‘no strings fun’ turn into something more? Only time will tell but its looking good for now.

4 out of 5 stars

Private detective Tom Barlow has been tasked with making a documentary about the Met Police’s investigation of a serial killer; a deadly sniper intent on murdering the poor. As Barlow races to identify the killer before they can strike again, he comes to realise that he’s involved in something far more dangerous than he’d imagined. Forced to dodge bullets, fight robotic spider assassins and make deals with killers, Barlow goes up against the Met’s top brass in his determination to expose the truth. But one year later, split loyalties have enabled a cover up, and when the investigation leads to a gruesome torture shed with two corpses, it’s Tom Barlow who finds himself the prime suspect.

Set in a dystopian England in the near future, Tom Barlow’s life is shattered as he tracks killers, protects a woman he’s in love with and re-discovers the man he used to be. Two books cover the same 18 hectic days. In Dead Poor Barlow is forced to revisit those frenetic days from a year before as his suppressed report into the serial killings finally surfaces, and in Feel.it, he risks everything to get close to mega-star, Roxanne Payne, a woman he’s obsessed with. In both books, Barlow finds his future unexpectedly entwined with that of Alexandria (Lex) de Montford, who is having her own problems with deceit, double-cross and death. Tom discovers that she is both angel and demon. She discovers what a psychotic, blackmailing bastard he really is.

Cover Reveal: ‘The Banker’ by Piper Rayne

 
Title: The Banker
Series: Modern Love #3
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: Djordje Grbic
Release Date: April 5, 2017


Blurb

Who knew my brother’s friend could be Mr. Right, and not just Mr. Right Now?

My brother refused to introduce me, so I blame him. If he’d just caved, and introduced me to Jasper, I wouldn’t be in this mess. I mean, really, what’s the big deal? I’m not interested in the guy’s looks.

Oh no, I want his cold hard cash. (Be honest, you were expecting that other four letter ‘c’ word weren’t you?)

Now, before you go getting all judgy, I’m not a gold digger. I have a legitimate business opportunity for Jasper to invest in. The problem is that my stick-up-his-ass brother is embarrassed that his twin sister invents kick ass sex toys. His problem, not mine.

So, I took matters into my own hands. Defeat isn’t a word in Lennon Hart’s dictionary.

Using my stealthy P.I. moves, I narrowed my search to a time and place where I knew I could find him. It was completely innocent. A chance meeting that would give me the opportunity to pitch my business.

It wasn’t until I sat down across from the gorgeous panty soaking man in front of me, that I realized I wanted so much more than just his money. I could very well want his heart if I wasn’t careful.

Apparently my P.I. skills aren’t as stellar as I thought because Jasper had his own secret—and it changed EVERYTHING.

Excerpt

CHAPTER ONE

The gorgeous redhead leaned forward across my favorite table at my favorite restaurant, and from the look in her eyes, I already knew what was coming next.

“So, what do you think?” she asked. “Should we take this conversation back to my hotel room?”

The two of us were seated at a prime patio table at Ocean, a fairly classy restaurant bordering the south end of Central Park. We’d been having a pleasant conversation from our outdoor post, enjoying the mid-summer breeze which was made blessedly cooler from the shade of our umbrella. We’d been planning to indulge in a leisurely meal as we talked, but Charise’s question ensured that this little luncheon was going to be cut rather short.

I eased back in my chair and assessed the fiery-haired bombshell seated across from me. Her invitation was unmistakable, and I found myself letting out with an exasperated breath. “I think there’s been a misunderstanding.”

“Well, maybe I should have been a little clearer,” she purred, sliding a finger to trace along the swell of her ample breast. “I’m hoping you’ll be able to, ah, teach me a thing or two about what a man really wants.”

“That’s not what I do.” I’d encountered this scenario a time or two, and I’d learned it was best to just confront the situation head-on, without mincing words. “Look, Charise, I think you’ve been misinformed about what kind of service I provide. I’m not a sex therapist; I’m an image consultant.”

I’m the founder and CEO of Swan, Inc., New York City’s preeminent makeover service. People who felt stuck in the “ugly duckling” stage of their lives came to me for transformation. My services provided much more than a simple makeover, though. Aside from helping these ladies out with a new hairdo and some clothes, I also offered some intensive remodeling of a client’s self-esteem. Reputedly, these methods helped to unleash a woman’s inner sexpot.

It kinda went with the territory. The sex appeal was simply a happily unexpected side effect of the confidence training I provided.

Charise blinked a few times in my direction, clearly confused. “I was told that you teach women to be absolute maneaters. And after I saw the change in Darla Haagen… I mean, she was positively glowing by the time you got through with her. She said you were a godsend. She said she never experienced a better eight weeks in her entire life. I’m sorry. I guess I just assumed…”

“Sometimes people do. I’m not offended.”

Most of the time, a new client and I will have engaged in a series of emails prior to our first meeting. Even if we haven’t, it was easy enough for them to do their homework on their own; my website clearly lays out what it is that I do. But sometimes, like in the case with Charise, here, people jumped to their own conclusions and thought they were merely hiring a high-priced escort. Hell, even if I was in the sex therapy business, actual sex isn’t a part of the therapy provided.

I gave Charise a smile, trying to put her at ease regarding the mixup. Essentially, the woman had just offered herself up on a silver platter only for me to turn her down. Rather than dwell on her undoubtedly bruised ego, I decided to point her in the right direction. “In fact, if you’re looking for a sex therapist, I can recommend someone for you. I have a friend out in Arizona—his name is Justice Drake and he’s the best at what he does. But he and I don’t work in the same field, understand?”

Charise tipped her head to the side and eyed me curiously. “No. I guess I don’t understand. I thought I was hiring you to teach me how to please a man.”

“Yes, to a point. Essentially what I do is teach you how to please yourself.” Charise’s lip curled, confirming that her mind was spinning all over again. Before she could jump to another conclusion, I added, “I teach confidence. That’s it. When you think about it, that’s the sexiest trait of all, wouldn’t you agree?”

I could see the shift in her posture as my words finally sunk in. “But I already have confidence.”

“Yes, you certainly do. Rightfully so.”

She gave me a flattered smile for that. “So, I guess this isn’t going to be a good fit, is it?”

“I’m sorry, no, it’s not.”

There was an awkward pause between us as the situation sank in, until finally, she let out with a resigned sigh. “Well,” she said agreeably as she rose from her chair. “It looks like my little sex-school adventure is going to turn into a shopping marathon instead.” She gave me a smile and held out her hand. “It was a pleasure to meet you, Luke.”

I came around to her side of the table to give her a hug. “You too, Charise.”

When we pulled away from each other, there was a devilish twinkle in her eye as she purred, “You know, Luke… Just because I’m not hiring you for sex, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun off the clock. Armed with nothing but false information and your photograph, I flew all the way out here from Houston, and I have to say, you’re even more delicious than your picture. I’d hate to think the sexy vacation I was planning is actually going to be a complete letdown. I could use some company over the next couple of months while I’m here.”

I couldn’t contain my smirk as I answered, “That is one tempting offer, Charise. Truly. But I’m going to have to respectfully decline your generous proposition. Something tells me you’re going to have one hell of a vacation without me. Here,” I added, pulling out my wallet and digging around for my friend’s business card. “Maybe after you’ve torn up New York for a few days, you’ll decide to reroute to Sedona. Give Drake a call. He really knows his stuff.”

She took the card from my hand, flicking it around her fingers as she said, “I will. I promise.”

One of my brows raised as I added, “Although you strike me as someone who’s already well-schooled in this area.”

Charise grinned as she gave me a last peck on the cheek before jaunting across the patio and into the park.

My morning appointment was a bust, and my afternoon appointment wasn’t scheduled to be here for another two hours. Since now I had some time to kill, I decided to take a walk to clear my head. I asked Fernando to hold my table, then slipped out of the gated patio and into the courtyard.

There were a few high-end boutiques that bordered this end of the park, so I did a little window shopping. Eyed up a new suit in the display at Brooks Brothers; checked out a new watch in the front case of Tiffany’s. When my stomach started growling, I became aware of my abandoned lunch, and stopped off at a corner pushcart to get a dirty-water dog with the works.

I loved the city. New York was the best place in the world to test a person’s mettle. You could live out your every dream or disappear into a sea of faces. Do whatever you wanted to do; be whoever you wanted to be.

I headed back to Ocean and hit the men’s room to clean up before my next appointment, throwing a couple bucks in the attendant’s tray and giving a quick glance in the mirror as I ran a hand through my hair.

I wasn’t always this good-looking.

Before you can accuse me of being an arrogant, conceited jerk, I’ll tell you that the personal assessment of my handsomeness is mentioned without spectacle or vanity of any kind.

Well, maybe a little pride, but that’s it. And I’m only proud because it took a ton of hard work to get myself looking this way. Countless hours at the gym, consultations with fashion gurus, and a whole helluva lot of mental reprogramming all combined to create the man you see standing before you today.

Fact is, before I was one of the “beautiful people,” I used to view an attractive person with the same sort of indifference as I would an air balloon.

Pretty to look at, but there’s no substance to it.

Strange that I should’ve made my living as an image consultant, right? If I had such disregard for external beauty, then why did I make it my mission to help women achieve the height of theirs?

And no. Before you can ask, I’ll tell you emphatically that I did not start this whole venture as some elaborate scheme to pick up chicks. I’m not looking to hit on them. I’m looking to help them.

Unfortunately, the sad fact is this: I’ve been where these women are now. I know from firsthand experience what it’s like to be ignored or downright snubbed for not looking like those people you see on your television screens. Society as a whole has always been impressed with such superficial qualities in a person. Looking good is the easiest way to catch a guy’s eye, and if a woman is coming to me to help her land a man, she’s going to have to understand that men appreciate external beauty above all else.

At least they think they do.

That’s why the second part of my service is even more important than the first. Yes, I’ll whip your body into shape. Yes, I’ll hook you up with hair and makeup professionals. But while all that is happening, I’ll be working on your internal assets. Pointing out your positive attributes, trying to teach you how to use them to your advantage. Building your confidence in little baby steps until you’re ready to do it on your own.

At the end of it all, you’ll have reached a point where you don’t even need that spa-day makeover, but you’ll get it just the same. Although by then, it’ll merely be icing on an already delicious cake.

Review

Well this starts out as a misguided plan of revenge for pain and anger that Zack just couldn’t deal with. It’s revenge he seeks against Kyle for taking away his chance to deal with his father. His parents were in an abusive relationship that soon spilled over to him at a young age. He had a lot of twisted anger built up inside, anger that needed to find a different release before it took him down too far to come back. His need for revenge stops the moment he sees Lana though. One look and he was a goner. She soon becomes a new type of obsession. One he longs to keep for years to come. Soon they will no longer have any secrets but for now the only way to get close to her is to use a few small ones. He can tell she’s been hurt, broken even, but he wants to put her back together again. She in turn is making him into a better man. The one he was meant to be, but the longer he holds off from telling her everything the harder the fall will be when everything comes crushing down.

Lana had been through a lot with her past boyfriend. He was her first everything so will always hold a part of her. You are just trying to figure out what happen to make them break up. You might have lots of theories but the answer is much sadder. With being a bit of a computer geek she progressed in school and college quickly. It means that she’s not so great in social environments due to experiencing them at such a young age. College at 15 isn’t really good for meeting people. She comes across as still a bit insecure with how she reacts when Zack gives her a compliment. Its like she can’t see herself like he can but he’s more than willing to keep repeating himself when it comes to her. Funny how she longs for a dominating man to protect her at the beginning when looking at her bosses relationships with how they act. Little did she know at the time that she did have her alpha male, he was just in the background waiting for his moment to come and claim her. He may be a little bit of a stalker but he doesn’t want to hurt her. Only get closer because he sees her as his. From the moment they kiss it pretty much seals the deal for both of them. They are linked from then on, going down a road unsure of how it will end. You are just keeping your fingers crossed it won’t end.

Hot spicy chemistry between them that grows slowly. Zack knows he needs to take his time so he won’t scare her off but some things are just far too tempting. All I’ll say is ‘What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?’ Lets see if it can be brought home because when he starts to show his kinkier side that’s when the fun really starts. Oh my! Lets just say when he gets her on a swing he makes it very clear whom she (specifically what body part) belongs to. Hold onto your hats because its about to get kinky in the best way.

They are perfect for each other as they are bringing out the best in each other and mending what’s been broken. How far will they get in their relationship though before the bubble bursts? Everything he’s ever done led him to her so he wouldn’t change it. You know he needs forgiveness for his sins and I have to say he does get it with what he does at the end. Keeps you hooked right from the start with how it will all play out. Great read and style of writing from start to finish.

5 out of 5 stars

Exclusive Content Excerpt:

 

Who is she? My eyes narrow as I take in the red haired nymph on the dance floor. Studying her movements, I notice she’s graceful and fluid, yet sexy at the same time. Watching her hips sensually sway to the slower tempo and grind to the thumping bass has my teeth clenching and my heart pounding wildly in my chest. I fight an instinctive urge to rush over, take her in my arms and never let her go.

What the hell is wrong with me? I’ve never had this reaction to a woman before. Usually they’re just a means to get off – a nameless, faceless hole to fuck. I use them hard and fast, bringing them extreme pleasure and pain because one isn’t as good without the other.

I’m tempted to slide behind her and let my hands roam over the gentle curves of her hips then slip around her waist to pull her flush against the front of me. There’d be no mistaking the effect her body has on me. She’d wiggle her ass against my cock, teasing me, then flick her eyes over her shoulder with a small playful smile on her shiny red lips. My fingers would slide down the soft material of her dress to skim along the bottom edge, trailing over her silky thighs. She’d tremble from my touch, proof she wants me too.

Merely thinking about it has me fighting the overwhelming urge to carry her off and have my wicked way with her. I want to see her cuffed to my bed, whimpering and begging for my tongue or hard cock.

She returns to the table in the back corner of Quake, a popular club in Boston, with her friends. Her cheeks are flushed pink from dancing and her hair falls around her shoulders in a sexy disarray of waves.

My eyes scan the faces of the people she’s with. I know the names and have background information on them all. I’m well acquainted with some, more than others. I grimace as my hand rubs over my stomach. It was only weeks ago that I had a knife buried to the hilt in my gut and I was at death’s doorstep. Seeing the person responsible causes anger to burn through my veins.

Taking a deep breath I flick my gaze back to the living red haired angel. Immediately, I feel a sense of calm wash over me. She’s the only new face amongst them and now that I’ve seen her – no other matters. I have to find out who she is. I need to learn all I can about her.

Her eyes scan the room as if she can sense the heat of my stare. I smirk knowing she feels it too. This pulsing attraction between us is powerful and it needs to be explored. It will be explored. When I set my mind to something, nothing stands in my way.

Her hands smooth down the material on the back of her dress before she sits. She awkwardly tugs down the bottom to provide as much modesty as possible, but the short length leaves a good portion of her long sleek legs exposed. I can tell she’s uncomfortable and I smile at her modesty. There’s a sense of innocence about her I find extremely attractive.

Round after round of drinks are ordered by her friends as I stand here, studying her every move, slowly sipping a beer. Watching her tongue make a slow trek around the rim of her margarita glass, licking up all traces of salt has me mesmerized.

She throws her head back laughing and her long red hair tumbles past her shoulders.

What would her hair feel like trailing over my bare chest if she bent down to kiss me while riding my cock?

I need to know who this precious angel is. Seeing her tonight isn’t a coincidence. Fate placed her in my path for a reason.

Standing to the side of the bar, my shoulder braced against a white stucco pillar, my casual body language conceals the hurricane of emotions she’s stirring up in me. She’s an unexpected twist in my well thought out plan. I can’t wait to get to know her.

Let the games begin…
