Blaze Townsend: I hate you.
Charisma Rossi: I hate you more.
She’s been expecting this ever since their latest showdown. She had good reason.
Hottest guy she’s ever seen.
Former fling.
Dumped her in front of her friends.
At her own party.
So no, she’s not about to forgive and forget just because he sits next to her in class.
He thinks all he has to do is turn on those baby blues, and she’ll melt right back into his arms. Please.She’d be crazy to let this cocky player affect her again. (Tell that to her body.)
Charisma Rossi.
Nerd girl with a dash of bad.
The one who got under his skin.
The one he cut loose.
Blaze knows she’s the riskiest prospect at Waylon University, but none of the interchangeable girls he hooks up with have ever made him feel the way she did. There’s absolutely no way he can have the girl and the game.
So why can’t he stop trying to win her back?
Can this wide receiver score the girl or will he make the biggest fumble of his life


 5 stars 
Charisma Rossi is a hot mess from a breakup last semester but all that changes this semester. I love how she tries to be the cool collected person but then something always happens to rattle her. That made her so relatable to me and I'm sure others. 
Blaze is the hot football player that broker her heart but he doesn't know it. They were casual and not serious, just having fun. He needs to concentrate on school and football. At first I thought he was going to be a typical jock but he turned out to be so much more and it made the story one you didn't want to put down. I loved it!

Excerpt:
“Need some help?”

I’m on my tiptoes when the question comes, trying to reach a book on the top shelf in the bookstore at the student center.

My heart does a nosedive off a cliff as that familiar gruff voice washes over me, his accent a smooth drawl that’s reminiscent of hot summer nights and slow kisses—kisses we never had…well, except for that one time freshman year.

I ignore him and try to grab the book.

“You’re too short. Let me,” Blaze says, this time closer, his voice soft.

I ease back on my feet and whip around, internally wishing I’d worn something more I hate you and don’t you wish you still had me, but sadly, I’m not in my kickass shoes and itchy dress. Today it’s flat-soled red Converse, black joggers, and a Yankees sweatshirt. I blow at a piece of hair in my face. Shit.

Of course, he looks magnificent in a tight long-sleeved black shirt that clings to his broad chest and tapered jeans molded to those leg muscles. His face is unshaven, the darkness on his jawline adding a broody look.

Curse him and his hotness.

I stare at him a little too long, until I snap out of it.

“I don’t need help,” My voice is strangled as I move to brush past him—forget the textbooks—but he reaches out and takes my elbow.

“Charisma—”

His fingers are a hot brand on my skin—it’s the first time we’ve touched in three months—and I pull away. A tremble starts in my legs. How dare he?It was one thing to see him in a social setting and pretend I was fine, but when we’re face to face without people watching… “Don’t put your hands on me. I’m not your hookup anymore, football player.”

His face reddens, and he drops his arms. “I didn’t mean—” he stops, not finishing as he studies my face.

I wonder what he sees. You know what he sees, Charisma—someone who wasn’t up to his usual standards.

Everything I didn’t say last night rushes out. “Didn’t mean to what? Dump me in the middle of my own sorority’s party in front of all my friends and half of campus? And you know, that’s totally fine. We both knew I wasn’t enough to keep your attention.”

His jaw clenches and he frowns, his brow furrowing. “I didn’t plan for things to happen that way.”

“How did you want to break up with me? Over candlelight? A text would have worked just fine,” I bite out.

The silence builds between us, and he watches me intently, as if trying to figure me out. He starts at my hair and works his way down to my feet, then comes back to my face. Just when I think I might combust from the intensity of his eyes, he looks away.

“What?” I cock my hip. “You look like you want to say something.”

He taps his hand against his leg. Ice-blue eyes, ones I used to stare into and get butterflies from, glitter down at me. “You just can’t handle that ended things, sweetheart.”

“Not your sweetheart.”

“Never were.”

Shit…shit…my heart feels like an anvil just landed on it, heavy and hard, and I can’t breathe for a second at his words, part of me pissed, the other part devastated. I wanted to be his sweetheart, I did, but he…

You’re not my type.

“Thanks for the reminder,” I say quietly, my anger folding away piece by piece and slipping into that horrible self-pity I despise.

He closes his eyes and scrubs his face with those talented hands, strong and big and capable, skillful with a football.

He steps in front of me, much like he did last night, and I tilt my head back to take him in. At my height of five feet, three inches, it’s hard to glare at a guy who towers over you and not look ridiculous, but I manage—until his eyes flicker with lingering emotion.

I dart my eyes around the store, searching for a way out, but I’m stuck between him and a bookshelf. “You’re blocking my path.” I focus on his legs. No sexiness there—well, except for the tight muscles under that denim.

“This is what I know,” he says in a low voice, ignoring my statement. “You told me we were just messing around. You set all the rules. Isn’t that how you operate? So why does me ending things with you even matter?”

“You never asked for more. You could have.” The revealing words fall around us, tinged with hurt, and I want to pull them back.

The silence between us crackles, yet I’m aware of other people around us. There are a few girls on another aisle, and I glance over as one of them pulls out her phone. No doubt she’s taking a picture of him. Part of me retreats, anxious she’ll get me in that photo—a girl who clearly doesn’t belong. He doesn’t notice. Everyone knows who he is, and they’re probably wondering why he’s talking to me.

“No, I didn’t,” he finally says, the words taut as if pulled from him unwillingly. He taps his leg, his tell that he’s anxious or angry. We weren’t together long, but every moment we spent together, I studied him like a wine connoisseur given a glass of rare cabernet. I know what makes him laugh, usually random things that make no sense. I know that groan he makes deep in this throat when he slides inside me, like he’s home. I know the feel of his hand when he cups my face and stares at me, a hesitant expression on his face—

“You can’t even look at me anymore. I wonder why,” he says, his voice a challenge.

Steeling myself, I face those baby blues. “You know why. I wish we’d never met up last fall. I wish you’d never flirted with me. I wish I’d never fucked you that first time in the library—”

“Same page. Same fucking page, Charisma.” And then he’s walking away, broad shoulders swaying as he stalks down the aisle…

 *****5 stars *****
Short, sweet, and super HOT!

Holy hotness! I think this is the hottest in this series and I absolutely LOVED it! If you read book 1 then you know a little about Vaughn already. If you haven't read it that's ok because this is a different book. Vaughn was in the first book a little but this is HIS book. He is a rock star looking for something and he isn't real sure what it is at first. 
Slate is a professional baseball player who doesn't want people to know about his sex life. His best friend knows the truth and everyone things they will end up married one day. But Slate has a secret and at Sensation he can be himself, his real self and that is what this story is about. Finding who you are, what you want, and making it all happen.This is my favorite book in the series and I think once again that Kimberly did an amazing job with it.

Makenna Bradford:


Get to NYC, do my job, prove the innocence or guilt of my target—a man believed to be the head of a Ponzi scheme with possible terrorist ties—and leave with no emotion whatsoever.  If only things were that easy.  I have to accept this case or quit.  A tough decision, given the man I’m supposed to guard and defend is my former long-time love and Dominant, Marcus Lombardi.  He shattered my heart causing me to run from the life we were supposed to have together¬—the life he now leads—as I needed time to figure things out, time for my heart to heal.

“You’re the only one who can tell if he’s lying, the only one he trusts.”  Too bad I can’t return that confidence.



Marcus Lombardi:


I should be worried about going to jail from bogus charges filed on behalf of the FBI and SEC for something I’ve never even heard of until now.  But all I can think about is the chance to see Makenna, be near her, and finally figure out what happened between us.  I’ve spent the last five years wondering what I did wrong, holding out for a chance to talk to her. Does she even care how she gutted me?  My life is literally in her hands now while she attempts to unravel the truth before I have to stand trial.  I pray my faith in her is justified and that some spark still exists, that all hope isn’t gone.  No matter what, she’ll always be mine.

EXCERPT:
We
fell onto the bed and lay on our sides, still connected, not wanting this
moment to end.  Youre my everything, he whispered in my
ear, making my body melt into him even further.
I
didnt want to move but
knew we had to.  If we didnt, Spencer would
probably look for us soon.  He always
seemed to be the one to panic if we got too quiet for a long period of time,
which made me start to question him as person.
Do you have to push
yourself so hard today?  Marcus whispered as he planted soft kisses
across the top of my back and shoulders.
I
wanted to put his mind at ease.  Ive passed a good
chunk on to Sophia and Ethan to figure out.
I do have work to do, but I can spend some time maybe watching a movie
or helping you cook in the kitchen today.
Maybe even call it an early night. 
His
voice sounded more jovial at the thought.
Really?  He questioned, as in disbelief, and managed
to pump into me one more time with his slowly softening cock.
I
pushed down to meet his thrust.  Yes.











Marcus
pulled out of me and had us in the bathroom with the shower running quicker
than I could blink.  Then lets get cleaned up, go
downstairs, and do what we have to do so we can get a good, long sleep tonight.  Of course he pulled my hand over to cup his
manhood to drive his point home.  


MEET THE AUTHOR:
I grew up in a small town in South Florida and moved to Central Florida to attend college. There, I married my friend, love, and soul mate and still reside with our amazing son, and a feisty, four-legged little boy. 

In my books, I draw on my work background in healthcare and business, along with my husband's engineering knowledge. 

I write in all areas of Romance from tame to off the charts steamy with tons of "edge of your seat" suspense mixed in. If you're looking for tame, swoon worthy characters, with some historical and paranormal elements, be sure to check out the Remembrance Series. If your preference is for hot dominant alpha males, then you'll want to give Elusive, A Learning Series, Need Series, and Titan Security a try. Each Need and Titan book are standalone novels with HEAs, no cliffhangers, plus loaded with edge of your seat, heart pounding suspense.

I try to make my writing very personal and close to my heart. Regular life is the inspiration for my books, through watching others to living it, but my imagination takes it to new heights, opening up possibilities that would normally not exist. 

In my downtime, I'm a voracious reader. I love to spend time with my family, cook, bbq, create new recipes, play the piano, walk, ride bikes, do cross stitch, dance, and sing. I enjoy the fact that we live in Amusement Park Central and so close to the beach!

 ***** 5 Stars***** 

This book was just as hot as the first in the series, maybe hotter. WOW! Definitely a little different book from Kimberly Knight's normal with the FFM scene but she did AMAZING with it. I loved Ayla right from the start. She was fun and a strong independent lead. Walker I wasn't sure about at first. He seemed like he was going to be full of himself and maybe a bit of a jerk too. I ended up falling in love with him pretty quick though and loved him. The story was great and it was so different with having the characters' story and the movie story going. I thought it might be hard to carry 2 storylines at the same time but it was easy and again Kimberly did a great job with it. Can't wait for #3.

Cover reveal for The Kiss Me Series by Emma Hart

SERIES BANNER 1

The Kiss Me Series, an all-new hilarious series of standalones from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is coming August 27th and we have the fresh and fun covers!

Kiss Me Not

Releasing August 27th
Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00027]
Let me make this clear right here, right now: I, Halley Dawson, do not care that Preston Wright is kissing other women.
Not a lick. Not at all. Nuh-uh-freakin’-uh.
I do care that he’s doing it six feet away from me behind a gaudy velvet curtain—making him my competition in this year’s kissing contest.
Why do I care, you ask? Because I’ve had an unfortunate crush on the insufferable idiot since I was sixteen years old, but I also know it’s never going to happen.
He’s the Creek Falls bachelor to die for, and I’m the Creek Falls racoon lady who puts peanut butter sandwiches out for them every night.
I’m not going to let him break my four-year-long reign—no matter how many times he breaks the rules and slides the curtain across to do the one thing he’s not allowed to:
Kiss me.

Kiss Me Tonight

Releasing September 24th
KISSMETONIGHT-1
What do a wrong number text, a burning building, and a quirky florist have in common?
A hunky firefighter with an extra-large…hosepipe.
In hindsight, I never should have opened that text message. The last thing I needed first thing on a Monday was a picture of some stranger’s, um, eggplant, in my inbox.
I also should have replaced the batteries in my fire alarm, because my Friday night did not need to end with my apartment building going up in flames.
But it’s fine. It’s fine. Everything is fine.
I’m only lying in a hospital bed with more split ends than I’ve ever had, almost all my Earthly possessions have turned to ash, and apparently, they don’t serve wine to patients in this place.
But like I said, it’s fine.
Until he walks in.
The guy who saved my life. My hero. Noah Jacobs.
And the universe is amusing itself at my expense, because the dirty photo I woke up to on Monday?
It’s his.

Kiss Me Again

Releasing October 22nd
KISSMEAGAIN
WANTED: ROOMMATE. Must be tidy, polite, and absolutely not my brother’s hot as sin best friend.
I have no idea why I said yes.
Maybe I’d had one too many wines. Maybe I’d done it accidentally. Maybe I’d been sleep-texting.
One thing I know for sure is this: I absolutely do not want Ethan Hawkins in my apartment, up in my business, taking over my space.
Yet he’s here. Moving his stuff into my spare bedroom. Sending a wave of panty-melting, musky man-scent my way every time he walks past me.
Here’s the thing.
We don’t get along—at all. We never have, and I don’t think we’re going to start now that we’re under one roof.
There’s also that little issue where I’m kinda, sorta, totally in love with him…
Uh-oh.
