EXCERPT:
WHEN I PUT THE key he had given me in the door to his apartment it felt like the end of a long journey. Really it was only a little over twelve hours and I had stopped to nap once along the way, but it still felt like too long since I had seen his face or been able to touch all that toned and tattooed skin. Jimbo greeted me at the door when I pushed it open. His tongue lolled out of his mouth and he jumped up and put his paws on my legs. He was going to be huge when he finally grew into his fuzzy body and I was overwhelmed at how happy I was to see him. I dropped to my knees and rubbed my face in his neck as he licked me all over my face. I was obviously missed and I had to say it was just one more reason I knew I was finally where I was supposed to be. It was late, so the apartment was dark.
 I checked the dog’s food and water, trying to be quiet in case Rowdy was already asleep. I was winding my way toward his bedroom when a haphazardly discarded sketch pad lying on the couch caught my eye in the dim light. I paused for a minute to pick it up and felt my heart stop and then start to race as I flipped through the first few pages. There were a couple of drawings that were obviously for clients, tattoos that hadn’t made it from paper to skin yet, but most of the pristine white pages were covered with images wearing my face. There was mermaid me, and naughty- sailor- girl me. There was sassy Indian girl me with long Pocahontas braids and there was sexy devil me standing next to angelic me. There were dozens of them all in different shapes and sizes, but every single image was undoubtedly modeled after my distinct look. I wasn’t sure if he had drawn them all over this last week while I had been gone or over the months we had been chasing each other in circles.
Either way it made my heart swell and the full certainty that I was it for him settle deep inside my bones. I set the pad down and tiptoed through the hall. Jimbo took one look at where I was going and huffed out a disgusted- sounding snort. The poor guy had learned early on that he wanted no part of what happened between his humans when they were together in the bedroom. The light was off and Rowdy was sprawled on his stomach across the covers. His blond hair was sticking up every- where and he hand one arm bent up under his head. The only thing that could have made the sight better would have been if he hadn’t bothered with the black boxers before crashing out.
Even with them obscuring the view, I couldn’t complain. I let out a breathless sigh and crept closer so that I could lean over and touch my lips to that anchor on the side of his neck. I felt his pulse leap and tasted the salt on his skin as he murmured sleepily and rolled over onto his back. Those infinitely blue eyes glowed at me in the dark as a grin pulled up the corner of his mouth.
“Hey.”
Rowdy Teaser 2
  
About ROWDY:

The New York Times and USA Today bestselling Marked Men series continues with this sizzling, sexy story of love, heartbreak, fate, and second chances.

After the only girl he ever loved told him that he would never be enough, Rowdy St. James knocked the Texas dust off his boots and set out to live up to his nickname. A good ol’ boy looking for good times and good friends, Rowdy refuses to take anything too seriously, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. Burned by love once, he isn’t going to let himself trust a woman again. But that’s before his new co-worker arrives, a ghost from the past who’s suddenly making him question every lesson he ever learned.

Salem Cruz grew up in house with too many rules and too little fun—a world of unhappiness she couldn’t wait to forget. But one nice thing from childhood has stayed with her; the memory of the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who’d been head over heels in love with her little sister.
Now, fate and an old friend have brought her and Rowdy together, and Salem is determined to show him that once upon a time he picked the wrong sister. A mission that is working perfectly—until the one person that ties them together appears, threatening to tear them apart for good.
Sensual portrait of beautiful girl with tattoo lying on bed.

What I thought about Rowdy
Rowdy, I just wanted to hug you for most of this book. It’s not often the Marked Men get thrown off their game, but when Rowdy sees Salem, he gets rattled in a major way. And then we start to find out why. There’s history between Rowdy and Salem, the kind of history that includes a sister named Poppy and a broken heart.

Rowdy’s scars are deep, and he’s not about to jump into accepting the feelings that Salem reignites in him after all these years. He spends a good amount of time trying to stay away, but it isn’t long before he gives in to what he is feeling. After all, Uncle Phil’s finger of fate had a hand in getting these two back together, and it was only a matter of time before they start heating up the pages and a lot of other places! 


There’s a lot of talk about the past in Rowdy, and when Poppy shows up in Denver, things take a more serious and deadly turn. And the surprises aren’t finished for Rowdy, as he learns yet another family secret.

And there’s a nice dose of Rule & Shaw, Jet & Ayden, Nash and Saint, and Rome and Cora here too, just enough to let you know they are still around and part of the “family.” I really like the family feeling about this series.
The setup for Asa’s story was also weaved into Rowdy’s story, and I’m already looking forward to that too!
 
In many ways, this book felt like a transition book though, and it seemed very different from the previous two books in the series. I'm okay with that -- I liked both main characters and their story. There were a bits of narration where I thought the words just a little too flowery or the voice just seemed off and while it wasn't a major problem, it was enough for me to take notice, so that took a little bit away from the rating.

Rowdy is a nice addition to the Marked Men series, and while not my personal favorite (sorry Rowdy), I loved this second chance story. I recommend this along with the rest of the series.

The Empire Chronicles #3
Alyssa Rose Ivy
Excerpt

“Then just kiss me already. Get it over with.”
“Kiss you? Are you kidding?”
“No.”
“I already told you I’m not sleeping with you.”
“Then just shut up.” She yanked on my shirt pulling me toward her. Her lips were on mine before I could process it. My lips responded immediately, greedily sucking on her bottom lip before pushing my way into her mouth.
She moaned, eagerly letting me in. My tongue tangled with hers, as I explored every corner of her mouth. Before my hands could do their own exploration she broke the kiss. “So much better.” She hopped down from the bar.
“Excuse me?” I was still spinning from the kiss. Had she really stopped that suddenly?
“Ok, let’s talk about the plan.”
“Now?” I asked with disbelief. “After that?”
“You could say thank you.”
“Thank you?”
“For easing the tension. It was thick enough to cut with a knife, but I preferred your tongue.”
“So that’s it? You just did that to ease sexual tension?”
“What did you think I was doing?”
“Giving in to your desires.” My eyes devoured her. Her tank top had pulled up when we were kissing, exposing even more smooth skin I wanted to touch.
“You mean our desires. There’s nothing one sided here.”
I glanced down at the bulge still obvious in my pants.“You’ve got that right.”
“You’re not a bad kisser.”
“Not bad?” I raised an eyebrow.
“I’d say you’re a seven.”
“A seven? I’m a ten. I’m a ten at everything involving sex.” I had no confidence issues in that department. No matter how pissed girls got at me, they never complained about the sex.
“But that wasn’t sex. Your dick wasn’t involved. I’m sure you rely on it to earn you points.”
“I don’t just rely on my dick.”
“Oh yeah? Well your tongue seems a little bit out of practice. Not using it much?”
“I use it plenty.”
“Oh. My mistake.” She licked her lips. “Anyway back to that plan.”

Spotlight & Giveaway:Rocky Mountain Romance by Vivian Arend



Summary
Second chances are the sweetest—and the hottest.

It took a spectacularly embarrassing break-up to knock Steve Moonshine Coleman off his lazy butt. In the ten months since that night, he's changed his ways. Now that Melody's back in town, it's time for this sweet-talking cowboy to convince her to get back in the saddle with him.

A return to her veterinary position in Rocky Mountain House was always in the cards for Melody Langley. Getting back together with Steve? Never part of the plan. He had lots of potential but zero ambition, and there's no way she'll accept anything less than a man who can keep up with her, in and out of bed.

But the new-and-improved cowboy is impossible to resist, so Melody issues a challenge. Three months to prove he's reformed. Three months of Steve orchestrating one sexual indulgence after another--‪wicked distractions from the old boys' club Melody faces at work and Steve's growing responsibilities‬.

He's got one shot to prove with more than words what's in his heart and soul.

Excerpt

Melody went with Steve willingly, around the side of the barn to where his truck and a horse trailer waited. He helped her into the driver side and she slid into the middle seat, checking her watch to make sure she didn’t get too far behind schedule. No way did she want another repeat of her hellish Monday.

“I’ve got thirty minutes tops, otherwise I need to phone the clinic and let them know I’ll be late.”
 

“You won’t be late,” he promised.

They rattled down a short side road but instead of turning toward the highway, Steve took them along a back trail that led through the trees into a clearing at the side of wide-open ranch land. Nothing lay before them but miles of low rolling hills. To the west, the Rocky Mountains rose above to the sky, the craggy peaks decorated with a tiny dusting of white in the highest cracks and crannies. The tree line broke off to expose granite greys and flashes of white quartz.

It was an amazing view, and she was glad it was something she got to see every day of her life.

She was still staring in admiration when Steve parked the truck and jerked open the door.

Melody followed him out, but couldn’t see any signs of an animal that needed attention.
 

“Do you want me to be a veterinary to the squirrels?” she teased.
 

He whirled, catching her under the hips and pulling her against his body so he could kiss her fiercely. Her back pressed against the cold metal of the horse trailer as his overheated body met hers.

“You’re driving me crazy,” he confessed when he finally let her breathe. “I’ve been aching to touch you since the weekend. I need to be inside you.”

Melody didn’t have the words to protest, especially not when he put his lips to her neck and sucked. A flash of heat went from his mouth through her entire system, and she clutched his shoulders.

She was in motion again, this time her feet on the ground as his hands scrambled at her belt buckle. “I want you right now,” he demanded.

The clock was ticking, but his hands were doing incredible things even as Melody tried to make the right decision.

“Oh, God. Here? You’re not serious, Steve, right out in the open—?”

He shoved her jeans down to her ankles. He stripped off his shirt, dropping it on top of the wheel guard of the trailer while she stood, pants around her ankles, admiring the broad bands of muscles on his torso.

Then she was on top of his shirt, her knees spread wide as he pulled her forward to his eager mouth. Her ankles were trapped together by her pants, but Steve didn’t seem to care.

Melody shoved her hands into his hair to catch her balance, but there was no catching her breath as he ate greedily. His tongue danced over her clit until she was gasping, the sound loud in contrast to the wind in the trees behind them. Everything that had to be done that day vanished as her world closed on this time, this place.



What I thought about Rocky Mountain Romance
I'll admit that I haven't read all the titles in the series yet, but whenever I get the opportunity to read and review a Vivian Arend tale, I take it!  Rocky Mountain Romance is a sweet second chance romance that also tackles the social issue of a woman being in a work role formerly held by a man. Some of the ranchers don't like that at all.


Melody left Rocky Mountain a year ago to get more training to deal with large animal veterinary cases.  On her way out of town, she breaks it off with her sometimes boyfriend, Steve in a very public and messy way.

When she returns, it's clear from the start there's still some unfinished business between them, and it doesn't take much convincing on Steve's part to give them another chance. After Melody accuses him of being too "vanilla", he takes up the challenge and let me tell you, there's no question of the sexual chemistry between Steve and Melody.


At work, Melody takes over the large animal cases at the veterinary clinic while the owner is on vacation, much to the dismay of one of the other vets who thinks that it should be his job. Surprise, surprise when the complaints start rolling in, some of them citing Melody's relationship with Steve as a problem in addition to Melody's "incompetence."



I really loved Melody's way of dealing with this, wanting to handle things on her own merits.  I especially loved when she questioned whether she was doing enough, and then didn't take it all on herself.  It was really a great moment in the story for me.


When Steve gets involved by throwing a few punches at a social event to defend Melody, she isn't too happy about it, and she puts their relationship on a temporary hold.  But they can't deny their feeling for too long, and an exciting interaction with a wild animal shakes them up enough to recognize their true feelings for each other.



I love that the drama in these stories takes a backseat to the relationships and I'm left with a good feeling that love is important and that people will stand up for what is right.



Overall, an entertaining read with adult characters that aren't afraid to give love another try.

Review & Giveaway:Storm by Carian Cole

Title: Storm (Ashes & Embers, #1)
Author: Carian Cole
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 30, 2014
Tour Hosted by: As the Pages Turn

Synopsis

The calm before the storm…

I lived in the quiet stillness.    
I felt the wind rustle, warning me, telling me to get out of its path.

But I didn’t.

I never stood a chance.

A series of weather and road mishaps leaves me trapped in the middle of a blizzard with a complete stranger.  In the back of a pickup truck. For forty-eight freakin’ hours.

A stranger with long hair, tattoos, and rippling with muscle.  
A stranger with an insanely sexy voice and a wicked smile that turned my insides to jelly.  
A stranger who held me in his arms, calmed me, and then set a fire in me that I couldn’t put out.

Storm lives up to his name. Beautiful. Dangerously inviting. Tumultuous. Dark. A clash of hot and cold.

He’s used to getting everything he wants.

And now he wants me.

Some people chase storms for the beautiful thrill. What happens when the storm chases you?
Amazon | Amazon UK | B&N |  Kobo | iTunes


★ Storm - Excerpt ★

My hand wanders up to his broad shoulder. So much muscle. I want to touch him everywhere and explore every beautiful part of him.

“You look scared.” His voice is soft and even. I nod a little. Yes, I’m scared. Scared he will kiss me, and scared he won’t. I’m lost in his gaze, trapped against the couch.

A faint smile touches his lips. “I like you scared. It makes me want to do things to you.”

My stomach flips and my eyes widen. Things? What kind of things? And while I feel scared, it’s not the kind of scared like when you see someone creepy in a dark alley. It’s a pulsing, electric fear that flips a switch deep inside me, making my heart beat faster and sending shivers up and down my spine. I peek up at him to meet his eyes. They are dark and smoky and honed right in on me.

“You have two hands,” he says.

I put my other hand on his arm and slowly move it up toward his neck and do the same with my other hand. His skin is so warm and smooth. I slowly run my hands up and down his inked arms and chest. There is something really fascinating about touching someone who is covered in tattoos, like caressing artwork. He’s waiting, but for what I don’t know. He closes his eyes and takes a deep breath. “I love the way you touch me, Evie. Everything you feel comes right through your fingers. I felt it when you were touching my hand in the truck. And I feel it now.”

I pull my hands away. I should not be touching him or making him feel all the things I feel. He opens his eyes and stares down at me for a moment. “I’m going to let you stop because you’re sick.” Let me? Let me?

“Storm...”

He leans down even closer to me, and I brace myself for his kiss, but he doesn’t kiss me. “You will touch me, Evie. I want to feel your hands all over me because it’s like a fucking drug for me right now and I need it.” He leans his forehead against mine. “And I’m going to make you beg me to let you because I need that, too.” His lips meet mine so softly... so briefly... that when he pulls away and walks out of the room, I’m left wondering if it actually really happened.

The fuck?

All this talk of touching and making me beg has my girly parts in a quivery wet mess. What the hell just happened? He can’t just come into my own home while I’m sick—breaking and entering, mind you—and tell me I’m going to be touching him and begging for it. I hear the shower running. Is he seriously taking a shower now after getting me all in a frenzy? He’s completely bat shit crazy. I need to get him out of here before I lose my mind and do something stupid. Especially, if he thinks he’s going to boss me around while I’m sick and not able to even think straight.



What I thought about Storm

 

Storm is a hot and sweet fairy-tale romance about a bad boy rockstar that isn't really bad and a good girl that finally grows up. An unlikely couple, but they worked for me -- there was a lot of steam in that truck stuck in the snow. 

The first 2/3 of Storm progressed nicely around Storm wooing Evie. He swoops in to rescue her in more than one situation and I couldn't help but like him. He was mostly charming and caring and sometimes commanding and possessive. He lit up the pages when he was in the scene.

I liked Evie too, although there were a few times she seemed a bit bi-polar. At the beginning of the book, she's insecure and afraid of a lot of different things, and Storm shakes her up good. Sometimes she likes it, sometimes she doesn't but once he gets her to thaw a little, she takes a good look at her life. I love how she got stronger and more confident as she pulls away from her long time boyfriend.  She got on my nerves a few times, but I totally understood where she was coming from.

The building tension as Storm wins Evie's heart kept the story nicely paced, and there are glimpses of stories to come as we meet Storm's band and family. But once Evie makes her decision, things almost got too gooey for me.  The last bit just missed something for me. The ending felt a bit flat and Storm's  behavior went from charming to almost being possessive in a scary way.


Overall, Storm was a easy, sexy and mostly entertaining read. I'd probably read another book in this series--there was enough of a tease for me to want to read about Ash, Storm's brother.There were things I really liked about Storm, and then there were some parts that could have been better.

A nice debut effort
