I got out of this place. I made something of myself. I did it. 

I’m Bo Hart and I had the world at my fingertips. Bull riding was my ‘in’ to freedom from this small town. 

In under a minute, all of it was ripped away.

Gone in the blink of an eye.

Now I’m back in town, and I’m not that happy about it. I’ve got too much time and not enough thrills. 

Kinlee was my first love. She’s the girl I pined for since we were little. When I left, I never planned on coming back. Now that I am, I hadn’t expected to find Kinlee still single, sexy as ever. I especially hadn‘t planned on finding her playing mom to her teenage siblings because of their parents’ sudden death. Now that I’m back, she needs to notice the new me. The grown-up me. She notices all right, but she also notices I’m still an adrenaline junky. 

I still need that surge pumping through my veins.

She still likes to play it safe and have her days planned out. I don’t mind her ways, but she certainly can’t get used to mine. Doesn’t mean I’m going to stop though. 

It took minutes to rip my career from the spotlight. 

It only takes seconds to decide whose life is worth more, and the outcome of that split-second decision will change everything.

I am a mess. An emotional, snotty, tear-stained mess. 

Surge is a rollercoaster of emotions. From joy, glee, and love to despair, loss, and will feel them all. 

I've been told I'm sensitive but dang. Piper Frost found the right buttons to push and then they pushed them until I broke. I broke and it wasn't pretty. But I am nothing compared to what occurs between the characters, their journey is harsh. Harsh and yet spectacular.

I will be honest. I loved Bo in Addict but the very beginning of this book...not so much. Clearly, I got over my distaste and fell hard. Hard and fast, actually. We all know how easy that is! What isn't easy...The hard part is staying strong. The trials that these characters go through are...(not going to spoil it). 

I'm not even sure how to tell you that tissues, chocolate, and wine won't cover it. Good friends and love are a blessing but sometimes they aren't enough. 

Piper Frost has made Kenshaw Ranch a home away from home. They gave us some amazing friends and some beautiful experiences in Addict. But you need to hold on tight because Bo is a whole different animal...It's about to get really bumpy on this ride.

#ExcerptReveal WICKED LIES by L.A. Cotton @authorlacotton


WICKED LIES (Wicked Bay #3)


With only one week until the release of Wicked Lies (Wicked Bay #3) L A Cotton is sharing an excerpt with us! Check it out below and see how to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card!


“I…” The words lodged in my throat. I wanted to go to college with Kyle. To be at his side. To be his everything. And there had been a time when I felt that I was. But he was hiding something. I’d suspected as much for a while now.
Water sprayed around us and Lo and I shrieked as the guys, wet from the waves, howled with laughter.
“Jesus, Kyle, you got us all wet.”
“That’s kind of the point, babe,” he said around a breathtaking smile and heat pooled low in my stomach. God, how I missed that, feeling close to him. “Come for a swim?”
“Lo?” I turned to my friend, but she was preoccupied with Maverick. “We’ll be in the water.”
Kyle pulled me up and wrapped me into his arms, peppering my salty skin with warm wet kisses. “You know I love you, right?” His declaration seeped into my bones, washing away some of the lingering doubts.
“I know. Now last one in buys ice cream.” Ripping out of his hold, I took off in a spray of sand and air. It didn’t take him long to catch up. His arms went around my waist and we stumbled into the ocean in a tangle of limbs.
“Kyle!” I scolded, running two hands over my hair to drain off the excess water but when my eyes landed on his, my legs clenched together. “What?”
Eyes fixed right on me, Kyle stalked toward me through the water. When he reached me, he dipped down, snagging my hand and pulling me with him. My legs went around his waist as his arms steadied me and he moved us deeper until the water reached my shoulders.
“Kyle, you’re freaking me out right now.” I quickly scanned the area around us. People were minding their own business. Groups of kids enjoying their summer break. The odd family chasing their toddlers in and out of the gentle waves.
“I just need a minute.” He rolled his hips into me and I understood his words the second something hard connected with my stomach.
“Seriously.” I slapped his chest. “Here? In the middle of a crowded beach.”
“It’s not like I can help it. Have you seen you?”
Rolling my eyes, I fought to hide the smile tugging at my lips. “You’re a pig.”
“But I’m your pig.” He gave me no warning, slamming his mouth to mine. I gasped at first, overwhelmed by the intensity of his kiss, but as soon as his tongue traced the seam of my lips, my body relaxed. The familiarity of his touch soothed some part of me. Kyle’s fingers pressed into the flesh around my hips, searching, seeking, as our tongues swirled together.
“Kyle, I…”
“What?” He broke off the kiss, touching his head to mine. “What do you need?”
Our eyes locked, and I saw the secrets glittering in his eyes, a reminder of his betrayal. I didn’t doubt he loved me, I didn’t doubt his loyalty to me, but Kyle was keeping something from me. So why didn’t I push it? Why didn’t I demand answers? The truth?
“I love you,” I rushed out, sealing my declaration with a kiss to his lips. Hungry and desperate, he kissed me back, his tongue licking and stroking every inch of my mouth.
“Wahey, get some, Stone.” A chorus of cheers broke out around us and I buried my face in his shoulder.
“At least one of us is, Berrick,” Kyle yelled back to his friends. Maverick’s basketball friends, to be precise. But Kyle fit in just as easily. Even though he was a year their junior, even though he was a Stone, not a Prince, they still loved him.
Everyone loved him.
That was half the problem. When we went off to college and he joined the Trojan’s football team, and the USC masses joined the Kyle Stone fan club, where did that leave little old me? At least people knew me here. I’d grown up with them. I wasn’t only Kyle Stone’s girlfriend, but if I followed him to USC, it was a label I wouldn’t be able to shake.
“I’m going to go say hi to the guys,” Kyle’s voice ripped me from my thoughts. “Want to come?”
“No.” I forced a smile untangling myself from his body. “You go.” I started to swim back to shore, but his voice stopped me mid-stroke. “Laurie?”
“It’s you and me. You know that, right?”
Trey Berrick launched himself at Kyle and the two of them disappeared underneath the crystal blue water. With a resigned sigh, I walked the rest of the way back to the beach. Maybe it was a good thing I didn’t get time to reply because what would I have said? That I didn’t know? That I knew there was something coming between us? That as long as he had football there would always be something coming between us?
I didn’t want to be that girl: insecure and jealous of her boyfriend’s future. But it was hard to love the very thing that would one day take the person you loved more than anything, away from you.

To the outside world, seventeen-year-old Kyle Stone has it all. A future playing the sport he loves, money and status, and his forever girl by his side. But Kyle’s good at pretending; hiding what he doesn’t want others to see. Because Kyle has secrets, the kind that can change everything.

Pretty, popular, and dating one of Wicked Bay High’s rising football stars, Laurie Davison is living the life most girls only dream about. But behind closed doors, she feels like a fake. Keeping up appearances is exhausting, and the one person she should be able to turn to is the person pushing her away.

They say love conquers all, but lies destroy. And when the truth comes out, hearts don’t only get hurt.

They get ruined.


Note: Wicked Lies can be read as a standalone but will be better enjoyed when read in series order

  I’ve become a prisoner in my own body, held captive by my thoughts. Without a TV, there’s not much to do besides write, draw, and think. When I run out of paper, I get antsy, and I talk to Dad, praying he’s watching over me. Because, no matter how hard I try to block out the noise, the inside of my brain feels like a cluttered junk drawer full of odds and ends that don’t matter. A bunch of trash that’s stuck in a small space with no purpose. Sometimes, the voices are so loud, I pace in circles until the ratty carpet fibers stop laughing at me. If I don’t, I’ll end up in the bathroom with the blade against my thigh. On days when I can’t get the chatter to stop, I run the smooth metal over my skin and watch the blood seep out. Blood—the lifeline that unites a family. All my family is dead or gone. God, I hate the sight of blood. The smell. The consistency. The way it smears and stains everything it touches. But, once the blade touches my skin, I forget about Tess and how little I have. Suddenly, that little cut is all I can think about, and I love the way it silences the screaming inside my head. For those few seconds of peace, I forget that Dad’s not coming back, that Trey is gone, and how Tess isn’t ever going to be the mother I need her to be. I’m no longer lonely and afraid. I’m the girl who looks in the mirror and likes what she sees. I am me. Nobody else.

#NewRelease #Reviews LONG SHOT by Kennedy Ryan @kennedyrwrites @EJBookPromos

"This story was brutal truth wrapped in hope, courage and unflinching love. It's a must read. It's a STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND READ THIS NOW kind of book. Don't hold your breath, this story will steal it from you." - J. Sterling, NYT Bestselling Author

A FORBIDDEN LOVE SET IN THE EXPLOSIVE WORLD OF THE NBA... Think you know what it's like being a baller's girl? You don't. My fairy tale is upside down. A happily never after. I kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud. I was a fool, and his love - fool's gold. Now there's a new player in the game, August West. One of the NBA's brightest stars. Fine. Forbidden. He wants me. I want him. But my past, my fraudulent prince, just won't let me go. ​ *Author's Note: There are aspects of this story that may be sensitive for some readers.

Kennedy Ryan please stand up. 

You aren't a hero (and I don't mean that in a negative way). You are the voice of a large and misunderstood population. You are a spotlight in a darkened alley. Long Shot will hopefully be a wake up call. 

But for me it's a reminder...

You see for a long time I judged the most important woman in my life. I shook my head in disgust and often didn't take here advice. I used her experiences as a mantra. I will never, would never, and won't ever. I never stopped to think about her. I heard her reasons and wrote them off. I heard her "excuses" and brushed them off. I never heard her pain. She only spoke in facts when talking about those times. I never heard HER. 

My mother is a hero. Kennedy Ryan gave her a voice. I may never "understand" but I will never dismiss her again. This isn't the first book I've read with these situations. It's just seems to BE more. 

So again, Kennedy Ryan, please stand up. Take a bow. Take a bow and KNOW that even if you can't save them all, you are helping salvage relationships between survivors and their families. 

Thank you for being a voice.

I would love to tell you the exact reasons that I loved this book so much but without giving away the nuances of the story I can’t.

Kennedy blew me away with this book, it’s so much more than a love story it’s an experience and a journey through darkness and pain to self fulfilment and love. 

If sports books aren’t your thing please give this a try, yes the hero August is a hotshot NBA star but this to me was Iris’s story. Nothing in the story is sugar coated, it’s in your face brutal reality of her life. I cried at her pain as much as I rejoiced at her strength and determination. August was not her salvation or her saviour he was just hers, from the moment he met her he was hers.

I know my review is vague but that’s because I have no words to describe just how fabulous this book is my favourite book by this author.

* * *

“Iris?” August’s frown, the concern on his face, in his voice, remind me where I am. “Baby, you okay?”
            I blink down at him dumbly, swallowing my tears, eating my memories whole and digesting a nightmare from long ago. I nod, my lips a cold, wobbly curve.
            “Kiss me,” he whispers, his eyes so tender, so intent.
I remember a magical night under the stars, under a streetlight on the eve of greatness. A night filled with laughter and confidences, pregnant with promise. And I see him so clearly, my prince, asking for a kiss.
And I do.
I kiss him like the world might end tonight because I’ll never take this for granted. Not his kindness, when I’ve known cruelty all too well. Not his tenderness, when I’ve been handled roughly in the past. Not his love, when I’ve been possessed and owned and mistreated.
He thaws me with his kiss, my prince, and I melt into him. We’re chest to chest, with August’s number crushed between us. I take his cock in my hand, aligning our bodies, and two become one in a carnal slide of flesh. I anchor myself by my elbows hooked around his neck, and we kiss until I’m dizzy and our breaths tangle in a cloud of bliss. Under the jersey, his palm spans my back, digging into the naked flesh as our hips lock and roll and grind. My body clenches around him, and we pray, we curse, we moan, we mate like our bodies were made for this moment.
Ours is a love that reimagines—that peels back the sky at high noon searching for the stars, collecting them like shells in a bucket. We bathe in stardust, drink from the Milky Way, and dance on the moon. We pierce the firmament, peer into infinity, and tread on time and space. There is no before. There is no after. Now gives birth to forever. This moment may die, but this love never will. Time is not a line. It’s a circle, and we, August and Iris, we stand at the center.

#NewRelease #Reviews #Giveaway CRAZY SEXY LOVE by K.L. Grayson @authorklgrayson @GiveMeBooksBlog

Title: Crazy Sexy Love
A Dirty Dicks Novel
Author: K.L. Grayson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 21, 2018


Three-time world champion bull rider Rhett Allen has never been afraid to get his hands dirty. Hard work, sweat, and determination have gotten him where he is today—and that’s holed up in a hospital room, wondering how he let that damn bull buck him off. He’s also wondering why he thought it was a good idea to let his twin brother talk him into returning home to heal.

Rhett has a million reasons to come home to Heaven, Texas, and only one reason to stay away. That reason comes in the form of a sweet and feisty girl who stole his heart long before he ever thought to give it away. The only problem…that girl has turned into a stunning woman.

Monroe Gallagher is downright sexy with more curves than he has notches in his bed post. It’s been six years since he’s seen her, six years since he’s felt any form of peace, and six years since she gripped his heart in her delicate little hands and squeezed the life out of it. The longer he’s in Heaven, the more he starts to realize that the heart she took from him—the one she crushed into a million pieces—she also never gave back.

It’s no secret that I like second chance love stories and cowboys aren’t normally my thing but I enjoyed this book. 

Rhett returns home to recuperate after injuring himself on the bull riding circuit. Going home brings Monroe his first love back into his life. 

I liked Monroe’s tenacity she’s a strong woman who’s adapted to the obstacles life has thrown at her. Rhett has a stubborn streak but he’s also funny charming and sweet at times. 

I enjoyed the story of them rebuilding the trust between them however I just wish the guy wouldn’t do the getting over one woman by bedding lots of other women. 

* * *

Crazy Sexy Love is a second chance at the one who pushed you away. It's friends, coming home, and that missing thing. With great friends, an awesome dive bar,and cowboys in jeans what more could you ask for?

Perhaps a hottie on a bull?
Or are you holding out for the mechanical bull?
Maybe you want the horns? 

Crazy Sexy Love is sweet with a touch of dirty talking. It's perfectly naughty and makes me reminisce about days gone by (okay, so I didn't have a bull riding cowboy. It makes me think of being young).

“Make love to me.”
“Plannin’ on it.” Pushing up from the bed, I kick off my shoes and slip her sandals from her feet. Her eyes follow my every move. Careful not to lift my left arm too high, I reach behind my head and pull my shirt off. When I reach for my sweats, she sucks in a sharp breath, her eyes glued to my cock as I let my pants fall to the floor.
“Your turn.” I crawl onto the bed, her eyes searing through me. When I undo the button of her shorts, she lifts her hips, allowing me to pull them off, along with her white cotton panties. Sitting up, she reaches for the bottom of her shirt, lifts it over her head, and flings it off to the side.
“You are so beautiful, Mo.”
The last time I looked down at her like this, sprawled out in front of me, I was too young to appreciate her—too young to understand the depth of what she was giving me. But that’s no longer the case. I’ve dreamed of her many times over the last six years, but my fantasies didn’t do her justice. Nothing compares to having her in my bed—hair fanned out, chest heaving, creamy skin begging for my mouth. I have to reach out to touch her to make sure she’s real.
I slide my fingers over her abdomen. The muscles contract beneath my touch.
She looks down, but I shake my head. “No, sweetheart, keep your eyes on me. You have nothing to be embarrassed about. I’ve seen every inch of you, remember?”
Her cheeks turn the prettiest shade of pink. “It’s been a long time. My body has changed.”
“Hasn’t been that long, and trust me, your body is perfect.”
With a flick of the front clasp, her bra opens, her beautiful breasts spilling out. She shrugs out of it, and I lower my body to hers, scarcely able to believe this is happening.
