Falling for the Backup By: Toni Aleo *Review & Tour-Wide Giveaway*

Falling for the Backup
By: Toni Aleo


Toni Aleo’s sexy new eBook original novella featuring the Nashville Assassins will have you believing in the power of love at first sight . . . and second sight . . . and the third.

After serving as a dutiful bridesmaid in the wedding from hell, Aynslee Shaw just wants to slink home to Nashville and forget the whole trip. That is, until the hottest guyshe’s ever seen is seated next to her on the flight and dazzles her with his easy laugh and killer smile. But just when she thinks things are getting good, he vanishes, leaving Aynslee wondering, was that guy the one? And did she just let him slip through her fingers?

Former superstar goalie Jordan Ryan is back on the ice—finally. After a crippling knee injury that had him wondering if he’d ever play pro hockey again, he’s got his full attention on rebuilding his career. So a pretty—okay, beautiful—girl on a plane shouldn’t be a distraction. But Jordan is very, very distracted. And when Aynslee crosses his path again, he’s not sure any job in the world is worth missing his second chance with a woman like her.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from the Loveswept title Empty Net.

The Do Over By: A.L. Zaun *Release Event*

Title:  The Do Over
Author: A.L. Zaun
Release date: May 20, 2013
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age Group:  Adult
Event organized by: AToMR Tours

Book Description: 

Life doesn’t look like it’s supposed to for Dani Ruiz, a hopeless romantic.  After a painful and sudden break-up with Rick Marin—who  she thought was the One—Dani hides away from reality, retreating to a world of fiction, preferring book boyfriends over the hassles of a relationship.
After almost two years of watching Dani in a holding pattern, her friends stage an intervention and force her back into the real world of dating.

Unexpectedly, Dani meets Liam Lucas, a down-to-earth firefighter. He might be the person to show her she’s still worth something. Dani’s hesitant to trust her heart with another man, but their instant and electric chemistry is something she can’t deny.

As Dani starts to believe that she’s found her real-life book boyfriend, Rick decides that he’ll go to any lengths to get her back. Seeing Rick as a changed man makes Dani question everything.

Can Dani trust her patched-up heart with Liam?

Or has Rick transformed into the man she’s always wanted?

Told from various points of views, The Do Over is a story of second chances and new beginnings. 

Check out this Book Excerpt
 From the corner of my eye, I could tell the instructor was tall and lean. He didn’t look too bad for an old dude. I was still glued to my Kindle, struggling to deal with the angst in the book, as I kept my composure in class. I have to finish this chapter. I could not believe what the heroine was about to do. I had a strong desire to scream and throw my Kindle against the wall. Feeling an urgent need to pace, I instead bounced my leg nervously as I chewed on my thumb. I knew this wasn’t good. I was having a book meltdown, sitting in a training class, as the instructor started talking. 

The instructor introduced himself. Wait. Did I hear him say Lucas? Am I in the right class? The instructor was supposed to be Captain Rafael Santos. Feeling a surge of panic rise inside of me, my face flushed as I painfully tore myself away from my novel.  
Slowly, I looked up through my lashes to see that he was walking in my direction. He stopped right in front of me. He was wearing black cargo pants that fit rather nicely on what could only be a tall body. My eyes kept going up until I hit his gray standard county-issued polo, which just so happened to show that he worked out. I shyly smiled as heat rose to my cheeks. I wanted to die of pure embarrassment.  
As a bright blush warmed my face, he looked straight into my eyes. He had the bluest eyes I’d ever seen. With eyes just like Miami’s sky and his dirty blond hair cropped short, he was breathtaking. My peripheral vision was correct. He was tall, lean, and yes, muscular. He was so not the old dude. I was a paralyzed mute. It took all my willpower to keep my mouth from hanging open.  
Bending over, he leaned in close to my ear. As his unshaven face brushed against my neck, he whispered, “I’m a jealous fool, and I don’t share. Do you mind putting it away?” His tone told me he wasn’t asking but telling me what to do. He paused briefly as he leaned even closer. “Name?”  
My heart skipped a beat. “Daniela Ruiz,” I stammered.  
As he slowly stood back up, he winked. He moved to close the door and then walked back down to the front of the class. 
At that moment, I realized that I’d been holding my breath with my legs pressed tightly together. Someone call a code blue. I wouldn’t mind at all if he had to administer CPR on me. Hmm, maybe I was a little premature on my stance involving men. For the first time in a very long time, I felt hopeful and a little turned on. Okay, I was a lot turned on.

Inspire By: Heather Buchine *Book Blitz* [Guest Post & E-Book Giveaway]

Inspire  by Heather Buchine
Publication date: March 31st 2013
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance

18-year old Paige Rice, an exquisite beauty from East Hampton, NY, has just celebrated her high school graduation and is expecting to spend her summer living it up with all her socialite friends. But her parents have a different idea – she is being hauled away-literally- to the mountains of Vermont for the entire summer- in an RV! 

Assuming she will be an outcast amongst the other teens at the campground still does not prepare her for the treatment she receives, which is far worse than she imagined. She also isn’t prepared for Travis, the campground owner’s son and the “Sexiest” guy she has ever laid eyes on. Travis is the only one who shows any interest in getting to know Paige. The only problem is that they have to explore what lies between them in secret. But once all the secrets are stripped away, the truth may be crushing.

***Intended for mature audiences due to language and sexual content***


Meet Travis: Book Excerpt

As I raised my head, I met stunning blue eyes set in the most gorgeous face that I had ever seen. WOW! I thought as my body reacted on the spot. Trying not to ogle but unable to look away, I quickly took in the sight. He was tall, with short, dark, spiky hair and was sporting a slight five o’clock shadow on his perfect chin. So SEXY! my mind purred as I looked down to see the rest of him. Although he was wearing a long sleeved t-shirt and jeans, I could tell that he was built and that his body underneath was just as incredible. Our eyes briefly locked, and then he smiled. His mouth immediately drew my attention, and I had to look away before he could read my thoughts on my face.

By no surprise my favorite hobbies are reading and writing. But beyond escaping into the written fantasy world, I love experiencing new things. Surfing, motorcycle riding, snow blading, glass blowing, parasailing, SUP boarding are just a few that I have checked off my bucket list, but there is still so much more to explore. Right now, being a mom is my biggest adventure and the best by far!! In the quiet calm hours of the night though, I can usually be found typing away creating a world of romance where drama still exists but love (hopefully!!) always prevails.

Twisted Summer By: Lucy V. Morgan *Book Excerpt, Review & Giveaway*

Synopsis via Goodreads:

A dark New Adult romance.
You have to understand that we never meant for it to happen. We knew it was stupid. We knew it was wrong. 

Eighteen-year-old Danni Warren has big plans for her last summer before college: a cool job, a concert she wouldn’t miss for the world, and spending time with her beautiful girlfriend, Esme. But after one hell of an argument, Danni’s mother packs her off to stay with her estranged step-uncle, Gabe, in his lodge on the English coast. So begins a weekend of the worst punishment imaginable: no phone signal.

With his sun kissed good looks and sarcastic manner, twenty-nine-year-old Gabe Asher isn’t anything like Danni expected. She wants to hate him—he’s her punishment for standing up to her mother—but between surfing lessons and beach hikes, Gabe and Danni grow close. Maybe too close.

Now Danni’s questioning everything: old family secrets, her future, her strained relationship with Esme. One sun stained afternoon, Gabe and Danni go too far. And then everything else falls apart…

Released: April 2013
Purchase: Amazon

Book Excerpt (My Choice)

From Chapter 2

There was a sinking weight on the edge of the bed and my body rolled toward it.
I shot up in the unfamiliar bedroom and came face to face with Gabe.
“I brought you some toast,” he said, grinning at my disoriented scowl. “Your Mum
said you like marmalade.”
“What time is it?” God. I must have looked awful. He was fresh and clean, his hair
darker and damp from the shower. I could smell the soap coming off him in the warm air.
“Half eight. I’ve got some errands to run, so I’m popping out for an hour. When I get
back, we’ll go out. Okay?”
I sank back into the pillows; I’m not sure why it felt nice to lie down around him but
I liked the little peak of adrenaline it tugged from me.
“Okay,” I managed.
He was so tall that he filled the doorframe. “You’ll be needing that sunblock today.”
He threw a smile at me. “Let’s keep you pale and interesting, eh?”
What the hell was that supposed to mean?
I took my toast and fruit juice out into the living area when I heard him lock the
door. I switched on the TV and lounged on my belly; I loved being in Gabe’s company
but the razor-sharp blasts of hormones exhausted me and the time to myself was a relief.
When I’d licked the butter from my fingers, I threw on jeans and a little bandeau top, and
set about making myself pretty.
In the mirror, my reflection cocked a silent eyebrow as I slicked on lip gloss. It was
cherry flavored and sickly sweet; Esmé loved to kiss me when I wore it. Esmé was not
within kissing distance today. When I studied the curves beneath my top, my nipples
jutted shamelessly in their braless state. I crossed my arms, embarrassed, despite the fact
that I was alone.
The door heaved open and the floorboards whined. Gabe was home.
“In the bathroom.”
“Don’t get dressed.”
“Um…” I stepped out, gesturing to my clothes. “Why?”
He handed me a trendy paper bag and I peered inside at what appeared to be black
and pink Lycra.
“I don’t do aerobics,” I said, my voice tinged with suspicion and disgust.
He cocked an eyebrow. “It’s a wetsuit. Want to learn how to surf?”
Surfing lessons? Where had my cool not-uncle been all my life

My Review
*Will Be Posted Soon*

About the Author

Lucy writes sharp contemporary fiction, usually with a liberal splatter of filth. She is a Lyrical Press author and a screenwriter.

Her upcoming new adult novel, TWISTED SUMMER, is a gutsy take on forbidden love starring an even gutsier heroine. 

Her contemporary series, encompassing CHAIRMAN OF THE WHORED and THE WHORED'S PRAYER, features slick London lawyers with a penchant for sensual violence. It's definitely on the darker side. BEAUTIFUL MESS, her current release, is a snarky, sexy friends-to-lovers romp. 

Lucy is currently working on new novels, and is developing a paranormal television series with producers (think The Vampire Diaries meets The 4400). 

She is still trying to kick her dirty Pepsi habit.

Tour-Wide Giveaway
 *The prize pack includes A beach bag by pro surf brand Brakeburn, Korres Cherry Lip Gloss, Signed print copy of Twisted Summer, and Luxury chocolate bars from Choccacino Devon.
