I was about
to make a huge mistake.
And when I say huge, I mean, approximately ten inches’ worth of mistake.
But after the week I’d had, this was just what I needed. A night of big bad
mistakes with a big bad biker.
Honey Scott
Finding out your boyfriend is a cheating loser is a real buzz kill. Finding out
you’re actually the other woman, is devastating. Call it temporary insanity,
but I decide the best way to get over the loser I’d dated for two years is to
get under a biker with tattoos, dimples and a hard body he knows how to use.
He’s going to make everything better with numerous mind-blowing orgasms. But
just for one night.
Except one faulty condom means my one-night stand isn’t so one-night after all.
Caleb
Calley
After a night of insane sex, the beautiful blue-eyed brunette gave me the slip.
And even with all the women on offer afterwards, I can’t get her off my mind.
So when she turns up at the Kings of Mayhem MC compound I’m quick to give her a
second night of amazing sex and crazy orgasms. But this time, I’m not ready to
let her go.
There’s just one problem— she’s not interested.
But if she thinks she’s going to give me the slip again, then she’s got another
thing coming. I know she is keeping a secret from me but I don’t care what it
is. I want her and I’m going to make her mine.
Biker Baby,
book three in the Kings of Mayhem MC series.

Excerpt

As he
waited for his breathing to calm, I took a moment to marvel in the bulk of the
man lying on top of me. My fingers slid across golden skin colored with a
collage of intricate pictures, symbols and words. My palm curved around strong
deltoid muscles that were well-rounded and powerful. He was big. Strong.
Lethal. And probably not interested in
being the father of my baby.
The thought
made me shift uneasily beneath him. I had to get out of there. I needed to be
alone to collect my thoughts and find my senses. I wiggled and Caleb rolled off
me. I thought he would let me go but he didn’t. Instead he turned my face
towards him and kissed me hard on the mouth.
But I was
leaving. I sat up and began looking for my panties on the floor. Finding them
wedged under the corner of the bed, I slipped them on and began hunting for my
skirt.
“Where are
you going?” He asked.
“I have to
go.”
“Why are
you always running away from me?” He said, an amused sparkle in his eyes. “Will
I see you again?”
I paused
and looked at him over my shoulder. “Do you want to?”
He grinned
and I was momentarily taken back by how beautiful it was.
How
beautiful he was.
“Hell
darlin’, I don’t want you to leave.”
I resumed
looking for my skirt. “I have to leave. I have things to do.”
I found my
skirt in a tangle with my shirt at the foot of the bed. 
“At least
let me give you a ride home.” He sat up.
“Its fine. I
can call a cab.” I stood up and slipped my shirt on.
“I’m not
letting you take a cab.”
“Really its
fine.”
He climbed
off the bed, unfazed by his nakedness, and began looking for his boxer shorts.
I paused to drink in the fine display of his muscular body and his still
swollen manhood swinging between his powerful thighs. It was obvious he took
very good care of his body.
He slipped
on his jeans and by the time I had buttoned my blouse and found my phone and
shoes, he was fully dressed and securing his wallet chain to his jeans.
“Ready?” He
asked.
There was
no point arguing.
As he
opened the bedroom door, I mentally braced myself. I wasn’t looking forward to
the walk of shame through the clubhouse. But the hallway was quiet and the
clubhouse was still. Sometime in the night the music had stopped and the party
had wound down.
As soon as
I entered the bar, the stench of last nights partying hit me like a bat to the
face and I had to hold my breath.  The
bar was littered with snoring bikers and the odd club girl asleep where they
had passed out. Bottles lay scattered and spilled everywhere. Stale booze and
body odor were ripe in the air. Caleb took my hand and led me through the mess,
stepping over discarded bottles and sleeping bodies. Musty smoke glittered in
the dusty rays of sunlight bursting into the room from a window above the
jukebox.
Across the
room, an older biker was quietly having sex with a large, partially dressed
woman up against the pool table. His jeans were down around his ankles and his
eyes were closed as he lazily rocked into her. The slap, slap of her large
wobbly boobs against the pool table broke the stillness of the morning.
Further
away, a naked woman lay slumped at the base of a stripper pole with everything
open and on display. She hugged a half-spilled bourbon bottle and snored
loudly. As we passed by her, Caleb shook his head and grabbed a discarded shirt
from a nearby chair to cover her.
“Is she
alright?” I whispered.
“Yeah,
that’s Candy. It’s not the first time she’s passed out there and it won’t be
the last.”
  I glanced around me. This place. These
people. This was Caleb’s world. And it reeked of bad choices. Nausea roiled in
the pit of my stomach and I barely made it outside in time before losing the
contents of my stomach.
“Jesus, are
you okay?” Caleb asked, coming up behind me.
I gestured
for him to give me a moment as another wave of nausea washed over me and I
vomited again.
“You drink
too much?” he asked when I finally straightened and walked over to him. “I
don’t remember you being drunk.”
I shook my
head. “I didn’t drink a thing.”
He handed
me a helmet. “Are you okay to ride? Or do you need a minute?”
“I’ll be
okay.”
He led me
over to a row of motorcycles parked alongside the clubhouse. His was a big
black beast with lots of chrome gleaming in the early morning light.
Before he
climbed on, he touched my hand. “Are you sure you’re ok?”
I smiled
brightly but it was fake because I felt weird. Out of place. I didn’t belong
there.
“Yes. I’m
fine.” I said, very aware that I needed to get out of there. I did up my helmet
and climbed onto the back of his bike. “Lets ride.”

Rapture by NN Britt–Review

To everybody that is questioning, ‘should I or shouldn’t I’ when it comes to reading this book, the answer is yes! Justice and Hazel will pull at your heart strings and take you along on a wild ride. Keep in mind, this NN Britt’s debut novel!! It’s almost hard to believe.

Hazel has suffered something so tragic that it’s almost hard to come back from. Pile on top of that, a husband who wants a divorce and has been waiting for her to sign the papers. An unhealthy vice has entered her life in the form of alcohol and a lot to numb the pain.
Booze Drinking GIF - Booze Drinking Alcohol GIFs

Justice is the cocky Rockstar. He seemed to have it all, but he is a broken man with a penchant for women. When it came to Hazel, he was different. He was caring, concerned, patient and understanding. Hazel isn’t his usual type, though. She’s pure, innocent, stubborn and has baggage that would’ve taken up half a train of train cars. Despite all this, Justice is intrigued.

It was beautiful to see these two morph into this ‘couple’, albeit originally assumed together by his paparazzi stalkers. Therefore, living in this fake relationship for a while. Neither are ready for a true relationship, but that relationship spark was lit back in the beginning. Their path together is not an easy one. There are mounds of grief, crappy exes, popularity, paparazzi and crazy fans.

Rapture was written extremely well. It may be a little on the longer side, but it was easy to get lost in the story. I personally enjoyed the fact that as ‘Jazel’ came to be, she didn’t shy away from the harder topics at hand, specifically Hazel’s drinking. Ms. Britt kept the plotline flowing with elements of grief, humor, chaos and hot, steamy passion. (*side note: whoa, they had some super sexy hot times! 🔥🔥🔥) I appreciate the difficulty that is present to write one complex character, but to be able to write two complex characters and do it well deserve a round of applause. 👏👏👏 Congratulations, NN Britt and welcome to the world of incredible books (remember debut novel)!

AN ELITE SEVEN IS LIVE!

Keep reading to grab your copy & to enter to win a $20 gift card!!!

 

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.

But who said the devil was a he?

In my world, she was out to cause havoc on all our lives.

She’ll use the one thing I care most about to control me—force me into her Elite world, filled with sin, deceit, and power. And under her spell, I’ll lead a sinister brotherhood of seven at one of the most prestigious universities in New Orleans.

Seven tasks set forth by the devil herself, promising nothing less than the forbidden fruit of power. What they don’t understand is it will all end in bloodshed and regret.

They call me the alpha. The one in charge. The one with pride bigger than any task I could be given. And my pride won’t let me be anywhere but at the top of the food chain until she gives me what I truly want.

My task is Meghan Thorne.

She’s too pure for me to touch, too good for me to ruin—and the only thing standing in my way to freedom.

Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak…they’re for The Elite.

As they say, pride comes before the fall.

I am Mason Blackwell.

I am Pride.

The Elite Seven

7 AUTHORS.
7 STORIES.
7 DEADLY SINS.

Since 1942, The Elite Seven Society have created and guided influential leaders, molding the country into something better. This society was birthed by Malcolm Benedict, II who wanted more for Americans. More wealth. More influence. More power. Some leaders have the skills, but not the influence, and that simply wasn’t fair according to Mr. Benedict. He invested his own money and time to construct a society that bred the best of the best, year after year.

But to be the best, you must be ruthless.

Good leaders make sacrifices. Sometimes the sacrifices are hard, but the rewards are plentiful. Mr. Benedict made sure to indulge these leaders with their utmost desires. A devout Catholic himself, he designed a society that rewarded his leaders with the sins that were frowned upon. If they were giving up love and happiness and joy for the betterment of the country, they deserved something in its stead.

Pride, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony, and Lust.

Choosing leaders for this society means that it takes intense focus. Only seven are to be selected, and the investments and time are showered upon the new seven chosen every four years. The predecessors of each group of seven choose people who fit the sin that will mold them into who they are needed to be in the future—what America needs them to be. This is after a detailed study of many potential candidates. The university’s acting dean behaves as a liaison for the society bringing the college applicants to the predecessors so that the selection may begin. The society members who are going out will bring forth a candidate that the society votes on and approves.

After they are chosen, the initiates are given a token and an invitation to initiation. The initiation will be a test to their character and ability to do what’s right for the betterment of the society. Once the initiates pass their test, they are discreetly branded with the mark of the society and are groomed through challenges during the course of their elite education to breed them into the influential people they were meant to be.

Once in The Elite Seven, there is no getting out. The money and power are their rewards. Should they choose to stray or break the rules, the society strips them of everything. Anything they once had will be removed. Opportunities will never arise. They will no longer have the support of the society. To this day, there have been no known occurrences of anyone from the society having to be banished. This elite group of people is what every young man and woman aspire to be a part of. While the group is a secret society, they are whispered about amongst the privileged folks in the country. Anyone who is anyone knows of the group and secretly hopes it’s their son or daughter who is selected, for good fortune is showered on the family for decades to come.

Lust: NOW LIVE

I was born with wealth, athletic ability, and looks that could melt the panties off a nun.
I had a clear path to success.
Until fate dealt me a cruel blow, leaving me empty and in need of purpose.
My only focus now is to become part of The Elite—a secret society in one of the most prestigious colleges in the world.
But everything comes at a price, and with The Elite, you have to earn your place.
Lucky for me, being sinful is in my DNA.
The only obstacle to full initiation is my task: seduce the un-seducible, the forbidden, and lure her with the sins of the flesh.
Easy for a man like me…in theory.
She started as my task, but what happens when the lines between lust and love blur, and the need for power rages war with the need for her?
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak—they’re for The Elite.
This is my life, my chance, my legacy.
I am Rhett Masters.
I am Lust.

Wrath: Pre-order now available

I’m a motherless son to a father who hates me. Fury has lived and breathed in my black heart for so long, it’s a part of my soul now. The only thing that’s ever mattered to me is protecting my twin sister, Sabella, from my father’s temper.

So when the chance to join a secret society presents itself, there’s no question I’ll do whatever it takes to become a member and earn my place in the ranks of only the most Elite.

With a taste for the deviant, I’m drawn to the darkest of desires, and no one ever leaves my bed unscathed.
My task: seduce Patience Noelle, St. Augustine’s sweetheart and the mayor’s beloved daughter—then break her heart.

Sinning is what I live for, and deviance is my passion. Failing has never been an option.

But what happens when my sin becomes my curse—when destroying the only woman I’ve ever wanted is my key to protecting my sister?
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak…they’re for The Elite.

Envy: Releasing March 25th

It was temptation that broke the sinner.

People say I have everything.
They’re wrong.
I may have looks, money, and privilege, but I don’t have the one thing that really matters, the one thing I crave: a woman with eyes only for me.
I’m searching for my woman—one who will fall to her knees because I’m her king. She’ll wear the crown of my tarnished name, and long for me when I’m not near. And when I am close, she’ll be naked across my lap, feeling the sting of my palm across her milky skin.
You could say I’m a sinner because I’d do anything to have the perfect woman—compliant to my every need and whim—and I’m envious of every couple who walks around naive to the luxury they have.

That’s why I joined The Elite, the most prestigious brotherhood in the south.
It’s the one place that will give me what I cannot have.
Only…the task assigned to me is too much for my jealous eyes.
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak…they’re for The Elite.
Those who envy have no peace.
My name is Sabastian Westbrook.
I am Envy.

ENVY by M.N Forgy

 

Greed: Releasing April 8th

I was born into a world of darkness—one that never touched me when I was around my brother, Mason Blackwell. Leader of The Elite Seven. The thing about darkness, though, is it’s persistent. Eventually, it pushes itself into my life, penetrating my soul and leaving its stench latched to every vein, rooted inside every bone, and sunken into every pore. I thought I reached rock bottom when I fell in love with my brother’s best friend. My very own brand of drug with no comedown. My own nightmare I never woke from. But I was wrong. So very wrong. When I returned to New Orleans, I arrived as a shell of the girl they once knew. Put on a smile. Be the sweet innocent girl they remember.

I’m Evie Blackwell, hostage to my demons. Can the damned be saved?

I’ve done some unforgivable acts in my years, but I never asked for forgiveness. Nothing beats the feeling of wrapping my hand around someone’s throat and watching as their life bleeds down their cheeks. She was everything I should have stayed away from. The first night I saw her, I knew I was doomed—a slave to the girl with the pretty eyes and soft smile. The girl who turned out to be my best friend’s baby sister. I couldn’t stay away. I had to be near her, even if it meant ruining her in the process. I wanted to wreck her, so I could piece her back together—a puzzle only I knew how to solve.

I’m Micah Dixon.
Greed.
I come for everything and get everything I come for—and I want all of her. But she’s changed, and so have I.
I’m much, much worse now…

GREED By Amo Jones

 

Gluttony: Releasing April 22nd

My life has been served to me on a gold platter to be devoured by my silver spoon.

Money, money, and more money. It’s the backbone of the Goddard name. I’m the only son, so it’s all mine for the taking.

But sometimes money isn’t enough. I always want more, yet nothing seems to satisfy me.

My father has made sure I become a part of The Elite Seven. Where most candidates are chosen, I was given my place. Everything comes at a price, though. Luckily, I can afford any price—no one has more money than God.

The Elite Seven have their initiations. My assignment is personal and beneath me: steal a car and send a warning. It’ll hurt my best friend in the process, but we both made a pact going into this. There’s no line we won’t cross.

My task makes an ugly turn and I nearly take a life. Such a small, unimportant person—someone no one would even notice was gone. She’s a problem my money and power can easily sweep under the rug.

It’s what my father wants. It’s what my brothers want. But when she finally opens those big, innocent brown eyes, I realize I’ve found what I’ve been searching for my entire life. I don’t want my little problem to disappear…I want to keep her.

Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak—they’re for The Elite.

Money is my legacy, but I want something money can’t buy.
I am Baxter Samuel Goddard V.
I am Gluttony.

GLUTTONY by K. Webster

 

Sloth: Releasing May 13th

I don’t give a fuck.
Not about money or fame, beauty or power. I’ve had all those things since birth, and trust me, they’re a fucking snooze.
I don’t give a fuck about anyone, not even myself.
Until my father proves evil can exist in the most holy of places. For the first time ever, something like interest stirs in my soul.
He wants me to enroll at St. Augustine.
Join The Elite.
Court the virginal daughter of Archbishop Savoie.
Prove to him I’m worth the family name.
I’ll do it all.
And I’ll do it so well, no one will know what’s coming. People are so quick to underestimate the wicked and lazy.
They forget idle hands are the best tools for the devil’s work.
I am Rush Dempsey.
I am Sloth.

REVIEW:

I am slowly developing a craving for the seven deadly sins! First Lust and now Pride. Yes, please I want more!!
The concept of 7 sins for 7 authors is genius. The series is not only known as, ‘The Elite Seven’, but is also the collective group of seven men within the book. Pride takes us on another adventure that is weaved throughout the story of Lust. Pride is about Mason Blackwell, the official leader of the group, and his backstory and how he came to be at St. Augustine. We are brought into Mason’s world and can see how his moniker as ‘Pride’ truly fits Mason. Pride is something that means a lot to him. Besides his sister, Evie, it is the only thing that he can call his.
I not only enjoyed getting to see more of Lust’s life unfold, but I loved getting the inside scoop on the Blackwell’s. Mason (& Evie) have not had an easy life. There were individuals whom he thought he could trust and keep him and Evie safe and protected. In one night, all he’s ever known is blown up and taken away from him.
As much as I liked Rhett, I LOVED Mason. There is just something about him and his character that is so appealing. He may be down and out, but he is not anyone’s whipping boy (for long). He is Mason Blackwell. He is the Alpha to the elite seven. He is the most dominant, powerful and assertive one and watch out anyone that may have crossed him prior to this.
There is only one thing this alpha wasn’t expecting and that is his assignment, Meghan Benedict. Meghan is a beautiful soul; an absolute sweetheart with a racy side. Watch out world when these two come together. How you feeling? Hot, hot, hot!!
The next book up is Wrath. I am so intrigued to see how the addition of Wrath will continue to develop this story.

High School Lover by Rose Croft–Review

41497357

Rose Croft is a debut author and High School Lover is her debut book. I was unsure of what I was going to experience prior to reading, but I was pleasantly surprised. I had surmised that it was a ‘friends to lovers’ type of setting, but it is so much more.

Andrew and Loren are good friends but are also friends with Mike. Loren and Andrew’s relationship eventually transitions into a love relationship, however, not all are happy with their new pairing. Because of this, they are forced to breakup and eventually lose touch with each other. An unforeseen and unexpected moment happens in their life that brings them back together.

Now you need to read this book to see what happens up to this point and after their reunion. Rose wrote a well-written book that takes you on the journey of these two main characters from high school to adult. Many hard-hitting topics were discussed and written well. I believe that we all could be transported in time from our own high school self through adulthood. I, truly, felt for Loren and Andrew. There were many times that I was screaming in frustration (at both these two characters and Ms. Croft) for the quest that she had created.

Besides, teenager angst and adults that had communication issues. She touched upon the stereotypical ‘norms’ that unfortunately are present in modern society. The concept of ‘judging a book by its cover’ is well covered throughout. It made me stop and think about this concept in real life.

High School Lover is well written with good topics. The ending is phenomenal!! The pacing and flow of the book was consistent, except for a small portion of the middle. The progress was still forward, just at a slower pace than the rest of the book. As I mentioned though, the ending was spectacular and made it all worth it!!

Congrats Rose on a job well done!! PS…you will fall in love with John, Andrews brother. I can’t wait to read his story!

Cheeky King by Nana Malone–Review

Before we go any further, if you HAVEN’T read Cheeky Royal…STOP! Cheeky King picks up right where Cheeky Royal ends, so you will need to read that one before this one.

In Cheeky King, we are now back in the Winston Isles where Sebastian is preparing for his coronation. There is one slight issue. He can’t seem to get past his time with Penny. He is hyper aware of his feelings for her, but also is having trouble acknowledging and addressing the fact that she deceived him.

Penny is also back home in the Isles, but her life is different from Sebastian’s. While he knows what is in store for his future, Penny is lost. She has always felt like she hasn’t fit in with the royal guard, but this has been her family’s calling for generations. She is torn between serving her country, even though she may not be happy or becoming an artist. What she does know is that it is torture having to see Sebastian on a semi-regular basis. Sebastian and Penny know that they could never happen, due to some archaic royal laws. However, Sebastian is king. He could change that, couldn’t he?

While there is suffering going on, there is also a good amount of mystery involved with many twist and turns. It may appear as our two lovebirds have more to worry about than their burgeoning and floundering love life. There is a grander ‘chess game’ scheme going on that makes it impertinent that this mystery gets solved quickly.

I enjoyed this book duet. Penny and Sebastian had insane chemistry that was palpable through the pages. It was well written and fast paced.

King Size by Madison Faye–Review

Lexi Whitlow is taking the ‘heir and a spare’ phrase to a different level. She wrote with such feeling that you could appreciate its uniqueness and genuineness.

King Size follows around Norah and Owen (aka. Collin). Norah is an American from Charleston, South Carolina. She is an artist, adventurer and thrill seeker. Norah has been traipsing through Europe and on this particular night she is in Paris where she has been interning with a fashion photographer. Owen ‘the spare’ has troubles of his own. However, he manages to sneak away for one last night of fun, prior to returning to his real world and responsibilities.  He is immediately drawn into Norah at first sight, but has been using his middle name, Collin. She is not anything like the usual Paris fashionistas and he likes this quality about her. Needless to say, they have an amazing night together only for it to be over when the sun comes up and he gets an emergency phone call from home.

Norah is not immune to the troubles that effect Owen. After being mad, about being left in bed, she receives an awakening from home that may put her plans on hold. She has a childhood friend that she has remained close too that she is hoping can help her out. Eric is willing to help, but has an agenda of his own. Norah agrees to whatever he wants, because she would like to visit her friend from college. Let’s just say from here on out, her future is being carved out and she doesn’t even know what it is or why. Fate has a funny way of working things out.

King Size was cute, royal, romantic read that was fast paced. Writing was well done with multiple twists and turns and ‘no way’ moments. This newly formed couple will have many issues that they need to conquer, individually and together. This was one story that I was sad to have reached the end!
