Synopsis:

I, Makayla Alexander, am on a mission to reinvent myself. So when a super hot guy boards the plane and flashes his rock hard abs, I pay attention. When he sits next to me and offers me his nuts, I can’t resist. But when I choke on them and he tells me I need to work on my gag reflex, I realize I might be in over my head.

Before I know it we’re in the lavatory and attempting to join the Mile High Club. Let me just say this…anyone who tells you it’s easy to get it on at 37,000 feet isn’t telling you the truth. After the flight attendant busts us for getting frisky in the air, the only thing that can ease my total and complete mortification is the simple fact that I am never going to see him again.

Hours later, I can’t help but wonder if fate will ever allow me to become a new version of myself.

Because Fate, she’s a fickle bitch.

Case in point…my seatmate is my new next-door neighbor.

Even with the whole fate thing we have going on, we are so not meant to be together. He’s all cool and sexy in that make love not war kind of way. Guys like him are dangerous. With that bring-you-to-your-knees body, that handsome-as-hell face, and that dirty, dirty mouth, I guarantee one glance from him wets every girl’s bikini bottoms.

And then there’s me…the quirky girl looking to find herself in California. All I want to do is learn to let loose. Say words like peace and groovy. Bury my toes in the sand. Who knows, maybe even have sex on the beach.

Unable to get him out of my head, I entertain the thought of being more than just friends. I know the idea is absurd. And yet, I go with it. You see Camden Waters gets me. Really gets me. Like no other guy has before.

On this 7-mile stretch of paradise, I decide to keep things simple and just have fun…that is until fate decides to screw with me, again.

Can two people hell-bent on finding themselves realize the search should have ended the day they met? Find out in No Pants Required—a sexy, funny, romantic stand-alone, that will have you hurrying to grab your bathing suit and rushing to the beach to check out every lifeguard on duty.

Fading Memories by A.M. Willard

 
Fading Memories
by A.M. Willard
Release Blitz
Contemporary Inspirational Romance

 

Synopsis
 
Isabel Nichols’s life
changed in more ways than one through the years. As a young child, she
experienced a loss that devastated her. It wasn’t until she was an adult that
the universe around her shattered. In a twenty-four-hour time frame, she lost
what she’d thought was her world. What followed was a year of mourning, a year
of grieving, a year of darkness. Now, there’s one man who can show her the
light.
 
Dakota Jackson left his
life behind on a whim, moving to a beach cottage away from the big city where
he grew up. He sees through Izzie’s clouds as he gets to know her, with the
drive to be everything that she’s ever needed. The only problem is, Dakota
holds the key to a secret that could ruin both of their hopes and dreams.
 
Passion isn’t always
enough to heal a broken heart; love isn’t always enough to guide you through
the darkness.
 
This is about two souls
that were meant to be together from the day they were born. Two people who have
to figure out a way to look past the memories. It’s the now; it’s living your
life as you’re meant to, loving the one your heart craves. It’s about letting
go of the grieving, learning to be who you are, and accepting life for what it
is.
 
Can
love cure all things despite its hardships?
 
Endorsement
“A.M.
Willard has the combination to unlock your heart. This is a elegantly written
book and an emotional journey that I highly recommend reading.” Author Addison
Kline.
Excerpt
Dakota
has positioned me over his leg as he moves us as one to the words. The gentle
sway back and forth and steady dips have ignited my core. It’s not just the
words being sung, it’s his touch, and the way he’s staring into my eyes. The
song I’ve loved for years is becoming something that is my life. He’s the one
who not only turns me on, but can turn me off in a split second. No one has
ever been able to cause the surge of emotions within me like he has in this
short time. The song ends just as he brings me up to his chest allowing out
foreheads to touch. My heart is beating so hard against my chest that it feels
like it’s going to jump out and into his. I know he hears the fast pace of my
breathing, just as I can hear his.

CornerofOceanAndBayBlitzBanner

Title: Corner of Ocean and Bay  Author: Gina Azzi  Publication date: June 15th 2015  Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult

Synopsis

Nessa Moore has sought reliable stability since her father’s death. Now, she’s over it. Tired of always being the mature adult, constantly worrying about her alcoholic mother, stressing about being able to afford college, she wants to have one normal, carefree, fun summer. And be more like her best friend Jacie.

Jacie Hayes is struggling to overcome the recent breakup with her first love. The one that ripped out her heart and left her devastated. Frustrated and bored with her own self-pity, Jacie wants nothing more than to forget about Dylan, to go back to her old ways, her old self. To be the fun-loving, live-in-the-moment girl who gossips about boys and sips mojitos.

Best friends since childhood, Nessa and Jacie have been through all their ups and downs together. No matter what. Now, the summer before their senior year of high school, they accept an invitation from Jacie’s aunt to join her in Lockwood Quay, New Jersey, a summer beach getaway.

Determined to make this their best, most memorable, summer yet, both girls push their own boundaries, accept new challenges, and find themselves keeping secrets from each other.

But sometimes, stepping out of your comfort zone has consequences.

And some secrets can’t be forgiven.

Or forgotten.

Excerpt

Strong hands close on my hips from behind and I immediately recognize Z’s touch, his smell envelops me as he pulls closer. The hard muscles of his thighs alleviate the pressure on my legs as his forearms close around my middle, holding me up, pressing me into him. His chin dips down, nestling in the curve of my neck. He presses a soft kiss to the top of my shoulder.
“Nessa,” he whispers, closing the space between our mouths. He stops an inch from my lips. “I’m going to kiss you now.”
I nod, barely, before his lips gently press over mine. Z kisses me slowly, sweetly, reverently. He pulls back slightly and looks into my eyes, shaking his head imperceptibly. His hands work their way up my shirt, gripping the sides of my ribcage and he jerks me closer, slanting his head; his mouth crashes over mine, and I’m pulled under like a riptide.

EXCERPT

 Irish Kisses by Helen Scott Taylor

Aaron closed his eyes and absorbed the warmth of Fiona’s arms around his neck. Her silky hair tickled his skin and filled the air with the fragrance of cherries from her shampoo. Just her touch pushed back the darkness that had threatened to overwhelm him. Much of the time he could keep his terrible memories locked away, but occasionally something would rise from the mire and he’d be right back there, reliving a shooting he’d witnessed, or worse.
He gathered Fiona’s hands in his and lifted them to his lips. He’d been such a fool. When he first went undercover, he’d imagined coming to tell her about it afterwards like some movie star playing at being a detective. The reality had shocked him. In the last six years, hardly a day had passed when he wasn’t terrified he’d be found out and killed. And the deeper he got, the more he had to play the role. He’d felt like he was digging his own grave and burying himself.
“Talk to me if it’ll help,” she whispered.
“I’m not allowed to until it’s come to trial and the cases are over.” Even then he wouldn’t want to tell her, wouldn’t want to disgust her and shock her. He kissed her hands again. “You’re sweet and good and everything that’s right with this world. I need to keep you separate from the darkness.”
