Grind: A Legal Affairs Story

(Book #2 of Cal and Macy’s Story)

Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: April 21, 2015

Grind is the second book in this Legal Affairs trilogy (Cal and Macy’s Story) and is releasing on 4/21/15. Clash was released on 4/7/15 and Yield will be released on 5/5/15. Grind and Yield are full length novels, while Clash is a novella.

Grind Synopsis:

Grind (verb): to weaken or destroy gradually

Macy Carrington is not the woman I once thought her to be.

What she does not allow her heart to feel, she gives with her body. The sex between us is explosive and depraved. I’ve done things with her that would never have crossed my wildest imagination, and I can’t ever seem to get enough.

But now I want more from her. I want to figure out her dark secret, expose it and then help her to heal from it. I know, without a doubt, that Macy is capable of love, and I will grind her down until I make her accept the truth of it.

Grind (verb): to wear down, polish, or sharpen by friction

Cal Carson is not the man I once thought him to be.

Strong, determined, sexy as hell and a beast in the bedroom. He is every woman’s fantasy.

He is my fantasy.

But no matter how hard Cal tries to grind me down, my heart and secrets are mine and mine alone.

Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3

If you thought Clash was hot, OMG, Grind is beyond it but in a totally different way.  I will have to say that Cal is quiet the man because not many guys would do what Macy asks of him.  Within the pages of Grind, you see their relationship or “friendship” grow.  You also see Macy put up walls, but Cal won’t let her keep them up.  He fights, but for more than the “I have to have the girl.” level.
If you loved Clash, then Grind will have you turning the pages just like before.  I can’t wait to see what’s next in store for Macy and Cal

Is Parker a #pusspuss? #Unpredictable @ShantelTessier

Title: Unpredictable
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: April 6, 2015

 

My niche in life is being an asshole. It suits me. I’m that guy who jokes about love and how settling down is overrated. Why would a guy ever fall for one woman when you can have as many as you want? Makes no sense to me.
But if being a cop has taught me anything, it’s that life is unpredictable. And that is exactly what Katherine is. The woman makes me question my sanity on a daily basis. Sometimes she makes me want to keep her to myself; other times, she makes me want to jump off a cliff just to get away from her.
Yet I still find myself turning into that little pussy I said I’d never be. Showing up on her front door holding flowers, only to have her throw them at me. Calling just to say hello, only for her to press ignore. Yeah, I’ve become a pussy all right. A whipped one at that. At first she was a challenge, but now I don’t like the fact that she is playing hard to get. But when someone comes after me, threatens my job, my life. It’s her that stands by my side. It’s her who has to pay for my sins. And it’s her who I’m threatened to lose. One thing that you need to know about me is that I’ll fight for what I believe in. And I believe in her more than myself.
What’s that saying? Boy meets girl and the rest is history…Well, those who fuck with what is mine, will become history.

Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3

Parker has always been the guy that made fun of his friends when they finally met their match, but what happens when life throws him a curveball?
When Parker is called to the scene of a horrific accident his emotions are tore out the frame, and as a parent, that scene had me an emotional mess!  Shortly after he is called to a domestic scene, and that bitch is crazy!  Both of these event impact Parker, but he never thought he would cross paths with Katherine, aka crazy bitch, again.
Unpredictable is Parker’s story.  Parker has previously been see as one that puts himself first, only out for one thing, BUT within this story you see Parker in a new light. In fact, you may begin to realize why he has a cat named PussPuss.  In reading Parker’s story, you will see he has a heart of gold, and when he protects something he gives it 200%.
So prepare yourself for this standalone.  You will laugh, possibly cry, cuss, and fall in love with Parker.
I sit at the wedding party table and watch the lovely couple smile at one another as they eat their cake. It’s sickening.
I can’t get my mind off the beautiful yet bitchy woman sitting next to me. She is having a much easier time ignoring me. But she did admit earlier that she was a good faker. I try to get up the courage to speak to her by taking another drink of my wine. I don’t need the liquid courage to actual speak to her; I need it to keep me calm from being a dick, which is what I do so well. I really don’t want her to kick me in the balls like she said she would.
“Would you like to talk about what happened that day?” I ask her politely.
She looks up from her cake and stares at me as if I have two heads. “Not to you.”
“Maybe I can help you,” I offer. “I am a police officer,” I remind her as if I wasn’t the one who threw her down in her front yard and handcuffed her. “Does that type of thing happen often with you and your boyfriend?” Maybe they like to fight. Maybe it’s like their foreplay. Believe me, I have seen some crazy shit.
She places her fork on the white tablecloth and leans over to whisper, “I told you once and I’ll tell you again. Drop it. What happened was none of your business.”
I reach out to softly rub her arm, and I feel it break out in goosebumps. “Does he hurt you?” I ask looking deep into her eyes. I’m being a total ass, and she knows it.
She jerks her arm away from me. “I had just got home that morning and was in a bad fucking mood,” she growls.
Just gotten home? It was like seven in the morning. “What in the hell were you doing just getting home?” I demand. “Especially the way you were dressed.” I smile as I let the dickness come out. “Been out hooking all night? And your man got tired of having to share you?” The memory of her telling me that she wanted to fuck her man’s best friend is still fresh in my mind. And what a thought that is.
I hear Samantha gasp as I watch Katherine’s eyes narrow on me. She reaches over to the table, and the next thing I know, she’s shoving her cake into my face. “Vas te faire encule salaud,” she hisses in my ear before I feel a cold liquid land in my lap. I can literally hear my cock sizzle as if she just put out a fire. Holy fuck, did she cuss at me in French? I think I just came.

ABOUT BRAYDON

by Nicole Edwards

Braydon Walker has always shared everything with his identical twin brother Brendon—hopes, dreams, career choices, and yes, even women. Known for tag-teaming their love interests in every way imaginable, Braydon is surprised and unnerved when he finds himself wanting to keep their newest lover all to himself. Will the twins’ relationship evolve to fit this new mold, or will Braydon’s desire for independence tear them apart?

Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3

Braydon and Brenden Walker share EVERYTHING, and I do mean everything.  You don’t find one without the other, and this even goes into the bedroom.  What happens when Braydon begins to feel for one of their shared interest?  Will Brendon be able to handle it or will he fall apart?
Braydon Walker is hot-oh-mighty!  He seems to be the quiet and reserved twin, but as the story unfolds you will realize that he’s anything but that.  He is strong, knows what he wants, and decides that it’s time to keep one girl for himself.
As Braydon makes this choice, his twin falls apart.  There is some much more to the relationship with women.  It’s the bond of a twin, and what happens when one decides to more forward.  This nearly kills Brendon, but when he does something completely stupid, it brings everything to the light.
Jessie moves to Coyote Ridge to be close to her sister.  She also is the newest interest between the Walker twins.  Since Christmas, she has sensed that things are different, and she’s also realized that she has developed feelings for one of the Walker twins.  There’s one problem, you don’t get one without the other, and she’s done sharing.  Will she be able to voice her opinion?  Will she get the happily ever after that she doesn’t believe she deserves?
Braydon is a story of growth as siblings and as an adult.  Nicole Edwards does an amazing job of intertwining all of the characters and there unconventional relationships.  Seriously, this family is NOT traditional by any means.  Needless to say, you fall for this family and their openness.  You also fall for a set of brothers that both might steel your heart, but they also could destroy it into a million pieces.
If you looking for a steamy read with characters that will make you feel like you belong in Coyote Ridge then this is the story for you!

Honeymoons are Overrated is a carefree and fun story of romance, friendships, and putting yourself out there.  I recommend it love when the good guy wins and you fall for him yourself!

Excerpt

“I’m sorry it took me so long to do this. Why don’t you look stressed out?”

“There’s nothing for me to stress about. The dress is going to fit you perfectly.” Sam said as she ushered Lisa into the changing booth that already had her dress in it. “Besides, the golf course is handling almost everything. All I have to do is show up. And pick up my family at the airport of course.”

“When are they flying in?”

“Tomorrow morning.” Sam winced. “Even though we tried to book flights three months ago this was the earliest we could get everyone in. Unless they all took a week off and flew in last weekend.”

“Ugh, what would you have done with them for a week?”

“Killed them. I’m sure”

“Who all’s coming?”

“Mom and Dad, T. W. and Sarah, Rick, Grandma, Pap, all of my parents’ brothers and sisters and about ten of my cousins.”

“Holy cow!”

“Yes. There are thirty-four of them.”

“That’s half the plane.”

“We got a group rate. Do you have that dress on yet or are you taking a nap in there?”

Lisa opened the door, and turned around. “Can you zip me?”

“Of course.” They looked at the mirror together. It was a simple strapless dress in royal blue. It fit Lisa like a glove and she looked perfect.

“See no reason to stress.”

“It’s beautiful.” Lisa said. “Are you sure you want me to wear this?”

“What did you think I would make you wear?”

“I’ve never been a bridesmaid before but I thought there was some sort of bylaw requiring some God-awful pink tulle creation.”

“Not for you, gorgeous.” Sam winked at her. “Chad’s going to choke on his tongue.”

Lisa rolled her eyes. “We got lunch today.”

“What? You got lunch with Chad?”

“Yup.”

“Voluntarily?”

“Yup.”

“Is he still living?”

“Of course he’s still living. What kind of question is that?”

“Are you perhaps softening towards him?”

“Don’t be silly. We were comparing our speeches for the toasts.”

“Well that seems like a perfectly reasonable excuse to have lunch with the second hottest man I know.” Sam said tongue in cheek.

“It was a short lunch.”

“How are the speeches?”

“We don’t have them yet. In fact, do you think there is any chance we could skip them?”

“Sure.”

“Really?”

“Yes. Luke and I both agree that ninety percent of weddings are useless pomp. The only parts we are serious about are the I Do’s and the cake.”

“For a girl who almost had apoplexy over the decision to move in with him, you are certainly taking this ‘til death do us part business in stride.”

Sam beamed. “What can I say? I’m in love.”

Oh, Jake Bryant! #OurSong @AuthorCasey

OurSongBlogTour

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00051]

Available at iBooksAmazon, Nook, & Kobo for #99cents!

Synopsis

Belle Montgomery is a small town Carolina girl.  She leaves her simple life, family, and friends behind to open for the one and only country music mega star, Jake Bryant.  With a break in their tour, sparks are bound to fly when Jake visits the small podunk town of Lattimore.  That is until Belle’s long-time friend Chase McSwain makes his feelings known.  Will sparks fly between Belle and Jake, or will Chase extinguish them before they start?

Chelly’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3

Belle Montgomery has done her share of singing in local country bars but now she’s touring and opening for the “country music god” Jake Bryant and with a voice like hers, she’s bound to hit it big. Admittedly, she fangirled over Jake when she first found out she’d tour with him. I mean, who wouldn’t? He’s a hottie with a perfect voice, he’s a gentleman, and he knows how to rock a pair of tight jeans.

While on tour Belle and Jake have quickly become friends. They flirt non-stop but they can’t go there, not without making things weird, but he’s proving hard to resist. Especially when they find themselves with a few days off during the tour and Belle invites him back to her small hometown and her family’s cotton farm. All Jake wants is a genuine girl that likes him for him, not for his fame, and Belle could be that girl.

Enter Chase and Lindsay, Belle’s BFFs from home. Chase has always been there for Belle, but never more than a friend. Everyone else sees how Chase looks at her, even Jake, but Belle doesn’t see him as more than a friend. Belle misses her family, her home, and her friends, but she loves her singing life and is looking forward to that career taking off. If only she could have the best of both worlds.

What happens when Belle and Jake get a little too close during their downtime? Is the risk of the aftermath worth what she’s feeling in the moment? Jake’s jealousy of Chase could prove what Belle has denied all along, that there may actually be something between Chase and herself. Will her heart lead her in the right direction?

Our Song is another great story from the fabulous mind of Casey Peeler. It is a short story, but it’s not short on feels and down home country fun. Give it a shot, you won’t be disappointed.

Excerpt

As Jake finishes his finale, he takes a bow and runs offstage toward me. He lifts me off the ground and spins me around.

“Glad to see me?” I ask.

“You have no idea what it’s like to look out into the crowd and find eyes that you know. Really know, Belle.”

“If I didn’t know better, Mr. Bryant, I’d think somebody had a crush.”

“If I didn’t know better, I’d think you liked it.”

“What can I say? I’m a sucker for a country boy in tight ass jeans that knows how to work a stage.”

Excerpt

He let go of the door knob and put his hands on either side of my face and pulled me into him, our lips touching, needing each other like our next heartbeat.  Who was I kidding, I did need him more than my next heart beat.

He lifted me up, and I wrapped my legs around his waist and hooked my arms around his neck.  He walked back to my bedroom and laid me down on the bed, ever so gently.  He unlocked our lips and looked at me, sweeping my bangs out of my eyes.

“You are the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.  I’ve waited so long to have you again…to taste you again, Khlo.”

I smiled, he was going to make me cry.

“For tonight, it’s just you and me, Khlo.  No one else,” he said as he crashed his lips into mine again.

I finally convinced myself that this was real…that he was real and tonight, I was his and he was mine.

Speechless #After by Anna Todd @GalleryBooks

unnamed

Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She’s got direction, ambition, and a mother who’s intent on keeping her that way. But she’s barely moved into her freshman dorm when she runs into Hardin. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, tattoos, and lip ring, Hardin is cute and different from what she’s used to.

But he’s also rude—to the point of cruelty, even. For all his attitude, Tessa should hate Hardin. And she does—until she finds herself alone with him in his room. Something about his dark mood grabs her, and when they kiss, it ignites within her a passion she’s never known before.

He’ll call her beautiful, then insist he isn’t the one for her and disappear without a word. Despite the reckless way he treats her, Tessa is compelled to dig deeper and find the real Hardin beneath all his lies. He pushes her away again and again, yet every time she pushes back, he only pulls her in deeper.

Tessa already has the perfect boyfriend. So why is she trying so hard to overcome her own hurt pride and Hardin’s prejudice about nice girls like her?

Unless . . . could this be love?

 Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3

When Tessa leaves home to attend WCU, she doesn’t expect to have a polar opposite roommate, and push every expectation from her mother to the side.  But hey, it’s college.  Isn’t that why we all attend?

Tessa is a total nerd.  I mean down to the pleated skirts, but honestly, that’s who she was molded to be my her mother.  She has a sweet boyfriend, Noah, who has barely passed first base in two years with her.  She has a head on her shoulder and is focused on her education.  That is until Hardin walks into her life, and from that point forward.  She is never the same.

With the help of Steph, her roommate.  Tessa finds a group of friends that are totally different, but she soon realizes that she wouldn’t trade them for the world.  As time progresses, Hardin, makes her life hell.  Over time, things change, but will they last?

Hardin has a scared past, and one that he doesn’t share with anyone.  When Tessa pushes Noah and her mother away, she is left with Hardin.  The question is will their love last or are the secrets he holds within too much for their relationship to bare?

Hardin is very closed off, but he shows himself in glimpses to Tessa.  This is why she loves him, but she also loves the relationship that is building between his family.  There were times I wanted to just smack Hardin for being such a jerk.  There is no way in this world I could handle this relationship, but they do say that opposites attract.

Their relationship is put to the test the last few chapters.  I fell in love with their emotions, realness, and the way they see each other for who they really are in life.  What I totally didn’t expect was the ending.  Well, I knew something was coming, but dangit, Anna Todd, I just want to know what is after, AFTER!

After by Anna Todd is a five star read. It left me speechless at the end.   You will experience a whirlwind of emotions multiple times, but each and every one are well worth it.  There is so much I could say, but I just might give too much away.  So if you are looking for a book that will have you glued to the pages, AFTER is it!  Thank you Anna Todd for consuming my life for the past 48 hours, but guess what?  Now I want to know what happens after, After!

unnamed-2ANNA TODD is a first-time writer spending her days in the Austin area with her husband, with whom she beat half the statistics by getting married one month after graduating high school. Between her husband’s three deployments to Iraq, she worked odd jobs from a makeup counter to the IRS processing center. Anna was

always an avid reader and boy band and romance lover, so now that she’s found a way to combine the three, she’s enjoying living a real-life dream come true.

A Review —–> Pulled by AL Jackson

pulledtourbanner2

Pulled-final_high

Melanie Winters and Daniel Montgomery shared a love most only dream of, a love they believed bonded them together for life.

When their world is shattered by the tragic loss of their daughter, overwhelming grief and misguided guilt distorts the truth, and their relationship ends in uncertainty and unanswered questions.

For nine years, they drift through life, each unable to forget the one who holds the strings to their heart. In an attempt to escape the pain of her past, Melanie finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage, while Daniel loses himself in a career that means nothing without Melanie by his side.

Now, when their lives again intersect, neither can deny the connection they felt so long ago. But will the power that drew them together be enough to heal the wounds from their past, and will they have the courage to overcome the insecurities and fears that threaten to keep them apart?

Pulled is a story of attraction and separation, of destiny and duty, of a love so strong it refuses to give up even when all others have.

“Okay, this one did it for me in a big way. I’m an angst-lover. And by that I mean, I’m a Thoughtless, Beautiful Disaster, Love Unscripted, Slammed, Fifty Shades of Everything, kind of reader. But there’s gotta be an HEA. And not a half-done HEA but a real yeah-this-story-has-been-agonizing-but-look-it-was-all-worth-it HEA. So, that said, I earnestly recommend this book. If you’re like me, you’ll like this. Enjoy!” LitJunkie

Unconditionally by Amber Nation

Synopsis

Excerpt

“I’ll have a Martini…dry, please.” Gin was my alcohol of choice for the night. I wouldn’t get shitfaced to where I couldn’t drive home though, I knew my limits. But that didn’t mean that I wasn’t going to get a bit tipsy.

“Coming right up,” bartender number one spoke before he went about pouring my gin and vermouth into a silver shaker and giving it a liberal jerk of his wrist. Seeing the action had my cock stirring in my pants and images of him wrapping his hand around me moved to the forefront of my mind. I needed action and in a bad way.

He placed a Martini glass in front of me on a hot pink napkin and tipped the shaker up, straining and pouring my cocktail before adding an olive as an embellishment.

Giving me a sexy wink before he turned and made his departure towards the other end of the bar, I picked up my enticing drink and before taking a hefty sip, I said partially under my breath, “Happy birthday to me.”

Feeling the cool liquid slide so smoothly down my throat, I had to close my eyes at the exquisite taste of the perfect combination. It was utterly refreshing.

“So it’s your birthday, huh?” I didn’t even notice that someone had taken a seat beside me. This voice was oddly familiar and came out as a deep rumble.

Turning my head to the side I was surprised to see it was Deputy Ethan Bradley. I had never seen him around here before, let alone anyone really from Brown County. Although I remembered hearing something about him being gay, it was just weird seeing him on the opposite side of the spectrum.

He was sans uniform and in a pair of dark denim jeans, with cowboy boots peeking out from beneath his pant legs. I realized that I was taking entirely too much time perusing his ensemble. So I was already going this far, I might as well check out the rest of the package.

Continuing to skim my eyes over his extremely fine exterior, I took in that he was wearing a rather snug fitting polo shirt that was tucked into those amazing jeans, and it was topped off with a silver belt buckle. With the dimmed lights in the bar it was hard to tell exactly what his buckle said, but I imagined that if he was anything like me, it would be something naughty.

I picked up the toothpick that held the green olive from my glass and leisurely placed it in between my slightly parted lips, sucking the remains of my martini from the meaty, bitter garnishment.

Ethan couldn’t take his eyes off of my mouth, so I supposed I was being a bit seductive in my act to eat the olive. No harm in that, right?”

Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3.5

Unconditionally is a story of love, hope, heartbreak, and acceptance. Toby is living life by going through the motions, but what he really wants is someone to love.
After Gio refuses to go public with their relationship, Toby puts on a happy face, but inside he’s crumbling.  He finds comfort in his friends, but he’s still missing his yen to his yang.

Toby kinds himself at a local bar/club often and keeps running into Ethan, he’s super cocky, but Toby is drawn to him.

After Gio tries to walk back into his life, Toby has to decide who is his perfect match, and who will love him unconditionally?

This is the first M/M I’ve read, and I have to say it was hard for me read because it was different than my normal read.  BUT with that being said, the story was beautifully done, heartwarming yet heartbreaking, a real life scenario, and I feel in love with Toby’s personality and desire to be loved.  It’s a phenomenal story and you will not be disappointed!
