I Need You by Cynthia P. O'Neill


NEED YOU NOW

Series: Need Series, Book #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance | Erotic Romance

~ SYNOPSIS ~

Nate Lawson was a player - dominating in the office and bedroom. Thanks to betrayal he didn’t do relationships, only one-night stands, until he met her. The one he finally connected to would be the one he’d let slip away… 

His job took him everywhere to uncover criminal activity at corporate levels. But, now he was back with one focus in mind, to expose the questionable activity at his sister’s workplace and find his woman! The only problem – who was she?

Gianna Scott finally found a Dom to show her the true meaning of submission – surrendering her mind and body freely. Too bad she didn’t know who he was or if he’d return. Her life had gotten crazy with someone intent on destroying her reports at work, making her frustrated and needing release – needing him…

Nate hated answering to anyone, but agreed to go incognito, as Gianna’s assistant. They’d butt heads at every turn, but why did fighting with her leave him turned on? And why was she starring in his fantasies? Would he ever find the one that got away?

All he knew is that he needed her - Now!

~ EXCERPT ~
I’d never felt so thoroughly fucked in all my life. When I’d been with other guys as a submissive or as a dominant, I was lucky to get one orgasm, maybe two if I was really fortunate, out of the exchange. But with him they just kept coming. He’d already managed to entice four or five out of me. I couldn’t keep count with my body feeling so alive and relaxed for the first time in years.

“Here, drink this, love.” His voice was silky smooth, making me want to melt into him in a puddle of goo.

I tried to take the bottle from him, but he wouldn’t have it. “Don’t try getting independent on me now, little subbie. You’re mine to take care of tonight. This is part of aftercare, so open up and let me be there for you.” His voice held the promise of discipline if I didn’t allow him to do his duties, so I opened and let him guide the water into my mouth.

I was thoroughly embarrassed at how much water I drank. I’d never been this thirsty from sexual activities in all my life. I was surprised how my body responded to him and how I still craved more. I remember squirming on top of his lap and feeling his dick begin to harden underneath me. “Watch out, love, or you’ll awaken the beast again.”

I’d stopped my movement, only to feel him harden further. A quirky half smile spread across his face as a few strands of hair loosened from his cowboy hat. It was too dim in the room and he was too sweaty to discern whether his hair was some shade of light brown, maybe caramel.

He placed the empty water bottle down on the end table before cupping my face with his hand. His lips hovered just above mine. “I’ve never met anyone like you before; someone who can satisfy my ravenous need for sex.”

I’d tried arguing. “But I’m not insatiable.”

His tongue danced across my lower lip before his teeth latched on, nipping at me, teasing me to open my mouth. When I did, his tongue pushed forward, devouring me. I couldn’t help but surrender to his desires. I was putty in his hands, ready to be molded to his liking.

“I beg to differ, little one.” He pulled his lips away from mine and gazed down at my crotch. That’s when I realized how wanton I really was. During the course of the kiss he’d managed to spread my knees and had his fingers inside my pussy. I looked down to see myself riding his hand with fervor and feeling my body slowly start to build with the need to come.

My mouth opened to speak, but no words came out. I was horrified at how reckless my behavior was. He seemed to read my mind. “It’s okay to give in to your sexual desires. You have certain needs and so do I. We seem to bring out the cravings in each other.”

I could feel my legs part and my ass moving up and down, trying to recreate the feel of his fingers inside me. “We both have needs and I. Need. You. Now!” My sentiments exactly!

I’d been so lost in the feel of his fingers deep inside me that I didn’t realize he’d shifted us over to the table, setting me on the edge, until I heard the rip of a foil packet and felt the force of his massive size shove deep into me, catching me off guard. God, he felt amazing. Every thrust of his manhood rubbed right against my g-spot, driving me toward the beginning of another orgasm.

A whimper escaped my mouth as I felt one hand palm my breast, while the other grabbed hold of my ass and pulled me onto him even further. I could almost swear he was trying to crawl up inside me.

~ ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~ 
Cynthia P. O'Neill 

I grew up in a small town in South Florida called Clewiston and moved to Central Florida to attend college. I married my friend, love, and soul mate and still reside in the area with our amazing son, and a feisty, four-legged little doggie boy.

In my books, I draw on my background in healthcare, business, and science, along with my husband's engineering and wireless technology knowledge.
I currently write on all levels of Romance. The Learning Series is for those who like a little more steam with their books, falling into the categories of Contemporary and verging on Erotica, with a hint of Suspense. The Remembrance Series encompasses Young Adult, with a touch of Paranormal activity and a hint of Historical romance. A new contemporary romance series is underway, called Need. It will be different than the others, because each book will focus on a new couple, while all of the characters will still have a large presence throughout the series.

I try to make my writing very personal and close to her heart. Regular life is the inspiration for my books, but I'm only limited by imagination taking ideas to new heights, opening up possibilities that would normally not exist.

On a more personal note...I love to cook and create in the kitchen and on the bbq grill. I sometimes lose myself in a song at the piano. I often sing with my son while we are driving or making dinner together. I enjoy crafts (flower arranging, making wreaths, painting pottery, needle point and drawing in pencil and charcoals). My music tastes are eclectic at best, ranging from classical piano to hard rock/heavy metal. It all depends on the song, group, and if it has a good beat or is a soulful ballad.

Hypnotized by Georgia Le Carre

Hypnotized by Georgia Le Carre

Genre: Erotic Suspense
Tour Host: DRC Promotions & Ingenious Indie Promotions

Synopsis


Hypnotized...  

Unlocking her mind... 

Will unleash his darkest desires.  

~ Marlow Kane ~

Two years ago I had the perfect life. Then…BOOM…everything was gone in a one shocking instant that left me dead inside. Now I’m a hypnotist on London’s famous Harley Street. I’ll help you kick a habit, lose an irrational fear, shed some pounds, or explore your past… 

My new client Olivia Swanson is an incredibly beautiful, mysterious and troubled young woman who has lost her memory. As our sessions commence her deepest darkest desires are laid bare and I realize she is not at all what she seems to be. What I uncover is so intoxicating I begin to lose all sense of professionalism. I know I should abandon our weekly encounters—I know I should stop—but I can’t… 

What I fear most is what I am discovering about myself.... 

~ Olivia Swanson ~

Marlow Kane is unlike any man I've ever known. He has film star looks, a ripped body and a very sexy American accent. But sometimes when he thinks no one is looking I see pain swimming in his eyes. 

To excavate my buried memories I gave him permission to delve into the darkest recesses of my mind, but I've now begun to experience flashbacks. The problem is I don't recognize the woman in my memories. 

But I say nothing because I fear he may suddenly stop and I cannot let him walk away. I live for his smoldering gaze and forbidden touch. 

He has no idea that the deeper he goes the more entangled we become....
 


Teaser:

‘I want you.’ 

The gold went from his eyes. They glowed like wet amber. Wild, ancient, and powerful. Suddenly, as if it was too much to resist, his hand reached out and grabbed a handful of hair from the back of my head. My mouth went dry. I swayed toward him. I could smell him. Soap. Alcohol. At this time of the afternoon? And something else. The smells of his day? Impossible to tell. Intriguing nevertheless. 

The other hand, rough with urgency, curled around my waist. Hot, solid and possessive. His lips traveled downwards. It must have been only a second but it seemed to take ages. Breathlessly I waited for his lips to find mine. I felt him inhale before our lips touched. And then all hell broke loose and I lost all sense of time or place. 

The brutal warmth of his mouth was incredible. All that was cold and lost inside me went up in flames like kindling on a dry night. I laced my fingers through the lushness of his thick hair and moaned. His tongue was fire. Irresistible. A madness that swept along my lower lip. When he bit the edge of my bottom lip hard enough for me to gasp with a mixture of pain and pleasure, his tongue snaked into my open mouth, muscular, cocky, and tasting indescribably delicious. 

A rush of heat flared between my legs. I stood on tiptoes like a child reaching for a treat on a high shelf, and sucked the hot and silky flesh like it was toffee. I could have sucked him forever. The greed that flashed inside me was as shocking as the impatience that poured out of me. 

I was starving for him.

~ ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~
ANNE JOLIN

Hey y’all, 
I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns, and driving in trucks. 

I never expected to be an author. A massage therapist? Yes. Take over the family construction company? Yes. But an author? No. Writing was something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful to discover that love, and I’m truly grateful to say I’ve found my passion. 

Since I’ve always been a creative person, it feels amazing to harness all of that energy and use it to tell a story I love. I enjoy incorporating bits of my real life into the stories I write. What parts are true? Hah. I’ll never tell—what would be the fun in that? 

If I could leave y’all with one thing, it’s that life’s far too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions, hold on tight to the things that inspire you, and chase your dreams relentlessly. I can promise you without a doubt that you won’t regret it. I know I don’t. 

Mad love, 
Anne Jolin

review: Falling for His Best Friend by Katee Robert


Falling for His Best Friend by Katee Robert


My rating:  4/5
Out of Uniform #2
ARC provided by NetGalley for an honest review
Published: 5/19/2015
Genre:  Contemporary Romance

Summary –

Avery Yeung’s biological clock just went off early. Thanks to her family’s medical history, she’s running out of time to get knocked up. And the only guy within donating distance? Her overprotective—and irritatingly hot—best friend. So clearly she needs an anonymous donor…

Anonymous donor? Over Sheriff Drew Flannery’s dead body. While daddyhood will never be in the cards for a man with his past, Drew won’t let Avery shop for a “popsicle pop.” He’ll do what’s right for his best friend by doing his best friend. But only if they do it properly.

But there’s nothing “proper” about it. Between the bed, the kitchen counter, and against his squad car, Avery and Drew are having the hottest sex ever. They can’t get enough of it—or each other. And without knowing it, they’ve crossed the one line that could ruin their friendship forever…
(Thanks to GoodReads.com for the summary)

My Thoughts –

I totally enjoyed Avery and Drew’s story in Falling for His Best Friend.  This book was funny, romantic and wicked hot!!  I loved that they were friends first.  These types of stories are so much more real than ‘I love you at first sight’ books. 

Avery knew what she wanted and wasn’t going to let anything get in her way of getting it.  She’s a great match to Drew, even though she was kind of clueless for a hella long time.  Drew is great.  I about love him to death.  I think their chemistry was off the hook and holy cow was it wicked hot!!

I liked that I didn’t know that this was a book #2 in a series.  Series are great, but even better when you don’t feel lost reading out of order.  Great writing, easy to read and awesomely hot!!  Fantastic to the author, keep up the great work :)

SALEM'S REVENGE by Kiki Howell


SALEM'S REVENGE
by Kiki Howell

Series: Salem Series #2
Genres: Contemporary, Paranormal, Romantic Suspense, Occult Horror

~ SYNOPSIS ~
In this sequel to the Amazon Bestseller, Hidden Salem, the story resumes one year later, another present day October, in Salem, MA. Filled with the same cross of pagan and paranormal elements, as well as suspense and occult horror weaved into Book One in the Salem Series, Book Two also contains touches of romance, giving readers a sweet addition to the spells and rituals. 

Denise Daniels came to Salem, MA to be in her best friend, Makayla’s wedding, but her matron of honor duties find her confronting more than she bargained for. In her first moments in Witch City, she’s greeted by a corpse used in a gruesome reanimation ritual.

Without warning, the final week of wedding preparations becomes mixed with a quick introduction to Wiccan practices, including necromancy used to communicate with the dead, as attacks by a mysterious, new coven seeking revenge increase. Denise soon becomes immersed in things she never expected, including automatisms—drawing elaborate pictures of two women in red cloaks in the woods—a pretty impressive feat for a girl who has only drawn stick figures prior.

As Denise tries to find her place in this world of magic, she discovers her own connection to the Salem of 1692. And, while losing the battle to save her heart from a romance that can never be, she ends up fighting to save her life.
