**Release Day Launch Giveaway & Excerpt** THE RESOLUTION OF CALLIE AND KAYDEN by Jessica Sorensen








add-to-goodreads-button



SYNOPSIS:

Things are going good for Callie and Kayden. They’re still dealing with their past and the pain connected to it, but for the most part they’ve moved on. The biggest decision they have at the moment is what they want to do with their lives in the future. 

Eventually, though, the past catches up with them and they’re left facing tough choices. But Callie and Kayden learn that as long as they have each other, they can make it through just about anything. 

And in the end, they discover what they really want out of life.



EXCERPT:


“She’s just being nice,” Kayden says gazing down at me. His hair is ruffled and his jawline is scruffy and he looks so happy. “And it’s nice… that she wants to be so nice... it could be worse than an overnice mother.” 
“Yeah, I know.” I sigh, knowing he’s right, that it could be worse, that I could have a mother like his mother. “I just wish she’d be just a little bit less embarrassing.” I raise my hand and make a pinching gesture with my fingers. “Maybe just a teeny tiny bit.” 
“Yeah, I doubt that’s ever going to happen.” Kayden slips his shirt off and chucks it aside. His jeans ride low on his hips, giving me a view of his abs and chest that is crisscrossed with scars. “I did find it funny when she kept cracking jokes all through dinner about how she thinks we’re going to end up getting married.” He kneels down on the mattress, nudging my knees open with his knees until I spread open my legs for him. 
“Oh God.” Shaking my head, I cover my face with my hands. “I’m glad you find it funny because I’m sure most guys would be running for their lives.” The mattresses moves as he leans over me and puts a hand on each side of my head. I crack my fingers apart and look at him. He’s been so much happier since he put the past behind him. He seems to breathe freer, smile more, and it’s probably the most beautiful sight I’ve ever seen. “Well, just make sure you really want this,” I say as he moves one of my hands away from my eyes.  “Because you still have time to run.” He shakes his head, his tongue slipping out of his mouth to wet his lips. 
“No running here,” he whispers in a raspy voice that I know only means one thing—he wants me. “Ever.” He moves my other hand away from my face then pins my arms above my head. A while ago, the movement would have sent my heart soaring and not in a good way. But now… well, it freaking soars like a bird high up in the sky never wanting to return to land ever. It soars because it’s free. It soars for him. 
“You want me,” I tease as he leans down to kiss me. 
“You’re right,” he says. “And then I want to give you your present.” 
“But you already gave me my present.” I pat my pocket where the tickets to the concert are that he gave me. He said it was for a redo of a night that should have been special, but he couldn’t give it to me then, but he was ready now to give me everything I deserve—his words not mine. My mom practically fainted when he said it. And me, well I think I fell in love with Kayden even more. 
“Yeah, but that one was only the first part.” He kisses me, then softly bites my bottom lip before he leans back for air. “There’s more,” he breathes against my lips, coming in for another kiss. “But you have to wait.” 
“Until when?” I wonder, my heart skipping a beat as his hands wander for the button of my jeans. 
“Until we’re done with this.” He gives me a wicked smile as he flicks my button undone.

EXCERPT:


Prologue

Trent Hudson swaggered into the boardroom radiating confidence. He had every right to feel that way as he was finally pulling the right strings to get what he so strongly desired. After all, hadn’t he manipulated the board into ensuring his continued professional relationship with Lauryn by threatening to find another brokerage firm to underwrite the public float of Hudson Biotech, the family company of which he was CEO?
Was it really all about her, he had wondered earlier in the day, when he set up the meeting. Was it just his raw carnal instincts firing on all cylinders that drew him to her or could there be something more? Surely his irreparably damaged heart wasn’t ready to feel something, perhaps even love, again? No. Of course not. He’d closed the door on that a long time ago, after his wife died, and embarked on a lifestyle that would keep him satisfied and make him unworthy to be loved again. By anyone.
What were the chances that the one person who might reignite his true passion might also be the same person who couldn’t really judge him for his lifestyle choices as she, herself, walked the opposite side of the same flawed path? Incalculable was his conclusion when trying to figure the odds. That’s how he knew he had to follow this through. He had to do everything within his not insignificant power to win her over. He desired her with a burning passion. He had to have her.
Trent Hudson had always been a man used to getting his own way. That’s how he built his father’s small research laboratory into a multinational pharmaceutical corporation and how he remained the CEO and majority shareholder. With his NASDAQ listing assuring him a billion dollar pay day, Hudson was about to become a man with the means to attain anything his heart desired.
“Are you happy now?” Lauryn remained seated as he entered the room.
“Why shouldn’t I be happy? I have much to be happy about. Not the least of which is the biggest drug company float this city has seen since it took the economy on a ride down a sewer of greed and corruption.”
“You know what I mean. Me. Are you proud of yourself for manipulating me and blackmailing the firm into having me at your beck and call?” she hissed.
“Now, now. No need to be rude and unladylike. We both know you wanted this as much as I did.”
“I wanted no such thing. Damn you, Hudson. This isn’t a game. People’s livelihoods are at stake here, including mine and my daughter’s.”
He moved around the boardroom table with a stealthy, predatory stride, his menacing eyes glaring at her. Lauryn trembled as he walked behind her chair and then stopped. The soft rustle of his superbly tailored jacket hinted that he might be reaching out to her.
If he lays one finger on me, I swear, I’ll slap the bastard and damn the consequences.
Slowly, he continued past her, until he reached a chair at the head of the table and sat down.
A feeling of relief swept over Lauryn, but to her utter dismay, she was overwhelmingly disappointed that he didn’t lay his large, forceful hand on her shoulder. She felt rejected, yet relieved at the same time. As she tried to process her conflicted emotions, she became aware that the tingling warmth of anticipation that had started to spread from her stomach to her sex was rapidly replaced by a feeling of emptiness and longing.
This can’t be good, she thought as she shifted in her chair and felt how aroused she had become at his approach.

**Blog Tour Giveaway** UNDER CONTRACT (GEG #1) by Jacquelyn Ayres









SYNOPSIS:


Charlotte McKendrick is your typical thirty-something stay-at-home mom. She has three beautiful children, a loving family, special friends, and the most wonderful, adoring husband. Her life is a dream. Er . . . let’s try this again. 

Charlotte McKendrick is not your typical thirty-something stay-at-home mom. Yes, she’s got three beautiful children, a loving family (all of them lingerers—you’ll see), and her friends are special, all right! As far as her wonderful, adoring husband, what a joke! That bastard abandoned her and the kids six months ago. Now, she will do anything she can to survive and provide for her children. Even if it means signing on the dotted line . . . 

Mitch Colton is the CEO of Colton Technologies. Most of his year is spent traveling around the world, bringing companies the latest innovations in automobile technology. He doesn’t have time for a traditional relationship and the BS that comes with it. He doesn’t do the “marriage” thing, the “kid” thing, and he certainly doesn’t do the “falling in love” thing. All that said, he still wants someone to come home to. Someone who will offer everything he wants, and nothing he doesn’t. He realizes loyalty paired with these kinds of demands won’t come cheap. No problem. What he doesn’t realize is that once Charlotte McKendrick signs that dotted line, he’ll be paying with a lot more than money.

MEET THE AUTHOR:


I am a domestic engineer (born and raised in NJ) whose sole responsibility is to guide three young, impressionable kids into becoming phenomenal adults. This challenging yet rewarding work requires a lot of love (coffee), patience (wine), and determination (periodic exorcisms). I work this magic from the beautiful state of New Hampshire.

Before becoming a domestic goddess (not really), I spent over a decade in the medical field, where I wore more hats than the Queen.

I have loved the written word and the great escape it provides since I was a little girl. When I wasn't reading about people and the places they lived, I was creating my own characters and adventures. 
Finding myself again through my writing in The Lost & Found Series, The One, and The GEG Series has been nothing short of a dream come true. Also, it makes people feel better when I laugh randomly or talk to myself, knowing it's my characters and not "the voices" . . . that would be creepy.

**Blog Tour Review & Giveaway** FALLING FOR FATE (Second Chance #2) by Caisey Quinn












SYNOPSIS:


Fate Buchanan just wants to escape the constraints of her old life. After checking her mother into rehab and catching her fiancĂ© with her maid of honor the night before their wedding, she ran. Angry and hurt, she’s aching to do something reckless. 

Dean Maxwell is having one last summer of freedom before taking over his family’s multi-billion dollar medical conglomerate. When he sees a beautiful woman running down the beach alone after dark, he knows it’s not safe. So he does something impulsive. 

When their paths cross unexpectedly after a night of unbridled passion, neither of them can forget the memory of the affair they shared. What began as one night is about to become a whole lot more. 

*While part of the Second Chance series, this novel is a standalone.






REVIEW:


        


Caisey Quinn is an Author that I have been in "fan-girl crush mode" with since I first read Girl with Guitar last year.  I thought I had read every single book of hers, but it seems that Last Second Chance (book 1 of this series) slipped right by me.  How that happened I have no clue, but I will be going back to read that soon (can't break my streak).  However, I am please to say that Falling for Fate is a true stand alone book.  I never felt like I was out of sync with the book or the characters, so reading this out of order is absolutely fine.  

Reading Falling for Fate (and the bonus novella that starts the book Falling for You) reminded me just how much I love Caisey Quinn's writing.  This book was just what I needed this week, something heart felt, addicting and hot!  There were some angst/drama moments but with the Caisey at the wheel this story never dragged or got stale, the back and forth and the chemistry really kept me flipping pages well into the night and then again in the carpool lane the next morning. I could not stop reading about Fate and Dean!  I had to know what happened next!  

One of the things that makes Falling for Fate special is it takes a pretty ordinary story about an inter-office romance and puts a new spin on it.  While this isn't my favorite of plots, I did enjoy the twists and turns Caisey Quinn added in.  The writing in this story was superb!  I love the way Caisey can take words and weave them into witty and engaging dialogue, while creating characters that you care about and connect with.  I am a fan!  

Fate and Dean were a great pair to watch, the tug of their chemistry, the pull of their responsibilities and their heat was worth the price of this book, but Falling for Fate was more than just a love story.  It was a about Fate finding out just how strong she is and learning that she can make it on her own and falling in love doesn't make you weak.  Caisey Quinn writes her characters young (early/mid twenties) so some of the challenges and issues they overcome are very realistic (if I can remember that far back).  Dean was an interesting character that made me crave more time with.  We get to know him throughout the book and what gets revealed really helps the reader understand why he struggles with the "more" aspect of Fate.  And the epilogue made me love him more!

Falling for Fate was a great read, intense heat and crazy awesome secondary characters.  I really enjoyed Fate and Deans journey and if you are looking for a quick read this weekend I recommend Falling for Fate (or any Caisey Quinn book).  If you have ever had the worst day of your life and think nothing good will ever come out of it, read Falling for Fate and see that sometimes the worst day of your life can bring you the best thing that has ever happened to you.

MEET THE AUTHOR:


km Kirsty Moseley has always been a passionate reader since she was a little girl, devouring books overnight, barely sleeping and paying for it at school the next day. Writing has come similarly to her and once she discovered Wattpad, she finally plucked up the courage to post one of her stories. Seven million reads later, she self-published her debut novel THE BOY WHO SNEAKS IN MY BEDROOM WINDOW, which later became one of 10 Finalists for the 2012 Goodreads' Choice Awards, Best YA Fiction. Shocked and overwhelmed by the response, she published her second novel ALWAYS YOU a few months later.

If she had to sum herself up in one word, it would probably be 'daydreamer' - but unlike most of her school teachers, she doesn't necessarily view that as a bad thing. After all, she read somewhere once that books are like waking dreams....

She lives in Norfolk, England with her husband and son.

**Release Day Review & Giveaway** SWEET POSSESSION (Sweet Addiction #2) by J. Daniels







SYNOPSIS:



A sassy, in-your-face baker. A panty-stealing, dirty-talking accountant. And a bathroom quickie that changed their lives forever.

Wedding hook-ups never amount to anything.

Unless that hook-up knocks you on your ass.

For Dylan Sparks and Reese Carroll, the big day can’t arrive soon enough. Dylan, stressed to the max from overbearing mothers and last minute preparations, struggles to keep her sanity. As for Reese, he’s fighting to not only keep his bride-to-be safe from creepy investors, but also to make it to the actual wedding day without losing his mind in the process.

Throw in a crazy group of friends, and a bachelor/bachelorette party weekend getaway, and you have a recipe for the sweetest wedding of the year.

Reese Carroll and Dylan Sparks cordially invite you to read Sweet Possession.











REVIEW:


        



Sweet Possession takes place 10 days before Dylan and Reese tie the knot, so if you haven't read Sweet Addiction (and you MUST) you really need to read dive into that fabulous book first before finishing up with Sweet Possession (trust me go ahead a buy both of these books you will be devouring both in one sitting).  I highly suggest that this series be read in order, but what a fun order to read!  


I love J. Daniel's (y'all know this from my last review) and she continues to shine and make me laugh out loud, sigh, choke up with emotion and wish Mr. Blushing Reader was as romantic as Reese!  My poor husband had no clue why I was mad at him this week, Reese is THAT amazing that even though you know he is fictional you wish your significant other was just a bit more like Reese and his brown notes.  *sigh*  Damnit Reese!

In Sweet Addiction, J. Daniels created characters that seemed very real, snarky and fun, that I felt like I was in the story with Dylan, Joey, Jules and Reese and I was left begging for more from this cast and my wish was granted with Sweet Possession!!  So many times I read a book and fall in love with the characters and wish I could get just one more book to see what happens next, and sadly when I do finally get that book it rarely lives up to the first book.  HOWEVER, have no fear, this was not case with Sweet Possession!  J. Daniels took everything I feel in love with in Sweet Addiction and made it just as awesome.  My characters stayed true to the ones I fell in love with in book one and the story was just as fun, emotionally charged and HOT read, giving me exactly what I wanted in this follow up book.  I got to see what happened next and check in on my characters and left smiling through my tears.  Of course more luscious stuff occurs, but I'm insist you read this book, not read my version of it and just in case you haven't read book on, no spoilers for you!


J. Daniels has taken a book boyfriend that I was in love with and made him even better!  Seriously.  Reese is one of the most romantic book characters I have ever read.  The scenes between him and Dylan are so emotional that I had goosebumps and tears welling up.   The "romance" was really put back in to this series and I gobbled it up!  I love reading about love (hence, the blog) and J. Daniel's gives me characters that I love to love and scenes that are so amazing that you highlight whole pages to go back and read later (and maybe show your husband and demand for brown notes).

Sweet Possession was a fantastic wrap up for this series and I am 100% happy with how everything ended, however, I am still holding out hope for Brooke to get her own story (I will never get enough of these characters, I have a slight obsession).  If have been craving a great romance that will have you laughing, sighing and steaming up your Kindle then go 1-click Sweet Possession and if you haven't read J. Daniels yet, you are in for a treat!!  Go grab Sweet Addiction and see what I am blathering on about (it is only $0.99 at the time of this post, so what are you waiting for?)

The complete New York Times Bestselling serial, now available in one book!

My cock has an appetite.

A huge and very particular appetite: Blonde, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar...(Although, that's a story for another day.) As a high profile lawyer, I don't have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online.

My rules are simple: One dinner. One night. No repeats.

This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less.

At least it was, until "Alyssa"...She was supposed to be a 27 year old lawyer, a book hoarder, and completely unattractive. She was supposed to be someone I shared law advice with late at night, someone I could trust with details of my weekly escapades.

But then she came into my firm for an interview--a college-intern interview, and everything fucking changed...
