A Thousand Letters by Staci Hart

A Thousand Letters, an all-new emotional standalone by Staci Hart releases on February 9, 2017!

Sometimes your life is split by a single decision.

I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them.

But now he’s back.

I barely recognize the man he’s become, but I can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid.

Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances, he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if I’d said yes all those years ago, he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different, we would have had a chance.

One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey bought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.

*A contemporary romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion*

About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey.
From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

The Do-Over by Julie A. Richman

From USA TODAY Bestselling Author Julie A. Richman a new, stand alone Second Chance Romance 

~ Sometimes, one degree is all that separates you from the one you were meant to be with ~ 

Wes Bergman was sex on a stick. 

We’d been circling one another our entire lives, mingling at the same clubs... attending the same events…sharing mutual acquaintances…yet we’d never actually met. 

Until…we both boarded a Windjammer Cruise in the Caribbean. And it was like meeting my long, lost best friend for the first time. I hadn’t ever connected with a guy that way before.

But Wes had a girlfriend. So, when the week was over, he walked off the ship, unknowingly taking a piece of my heart with him.

Now, over a decade later, newly divorced, I’m the proverbial fish out of water. Dating has totally changed. Apps. Swipe left. Swipe right. Catfishing. Men my age want two things: twenty-five-year-olds—like my ex’s new child bride of a wife—or just a quick hook-up.

After a string of bad dates, I finally did something I never thought I’d do. I had a hot one-night stand with a really handsome guy I met online who didn’t even know my real name.

Turned out Mr. Fling is a big shot for my company’s newest client. And just my luck, that client’s CEO is none other than...Wes Bergman.

Now I’m separated by one degree again from the man who stole my heart. 

And Mr. Fling could destroy my chance of what I want most – a Do-Over with Wes.

In multiple positions.
I slept with my student and I enjoyed it.
I slept with my student and I’d do it all over again if I could turn back time.

Preppy: The Life and Death of Samuel Clearwater, Part Two (King, #6) by T.M. Frazier

Preppy finds himself back in a world he once loved, but no longer recognizes. His dim smile can’t hide his inner turmoil and the people he views as family all suddenly feel like polite strangers.

Except for one person. A girl with dark eyes and even darker hair.
A girl who isn’t even an option.

At least, not anymore.

Dre can’t decide who she’s going to listen to. Her heart, her head, or her body. Because two out of those three things have her heading right back to Logan’s Beach. Closure is what she tells herself she’s seeking, but when she unlocks doors that were never meant to be opened she soon discovers that when it comes to Samuel Clearwater, closure might NEVER be an option.

This is book six in the King Series and the second part of 
Preppy and Dre's story. 

Purchase Preppy Part Two on Amazon!

“Oh yeah?” Preppy asked, taking a step forward, crowding me in, staring deep into my eyes with an intensity that had me biting down hard on my lower lip. “Do YOU like a clean look, Doc? Or do you like it dirty? Beards. Tattoos…scars?”
Yes, I like it dirty. So dirty.
I was stunned into silence. Preppy's proximity was fucking with my brain, and I was afraid I was going to blurt out something that would dig me a deeper hole than I’d already dug for myself.  I opened my mouth to answer, but I couldn’t get the words out. Not like I needed to. Preppy answered for me. “If I remember correctly, you like it dirty. Real fucking dirty.”
He took another step. “Remember that first time? In the field? By the train tracks? Remember how I pulled your hair while I fucked you from behind and stretched you open? Remember how it felt to have me moving inside of you? How it felt when you came and screamed in my fucking ear? I do. I remember. Thought of that scream every fucking day since. It was deafening.” He chuckled and pressed his teeth against his bottom lip. He groaned, the sound shot straight to my pussy. “I can still fucking hear it now.”
So can I.
The hair on the back of my neck stood on end. “What are you doing?” I asked, trying to step around him, but he pressed his hands against the wall, caging me in. The warmth of his chest radiated onto mine. I tried to look anywhere but into his eyes, afraid of what I might see, but there wasn’t anywhere else to look. He moved even closer.
Preppy pressed his knee between my thighs, parting my legs. “Me?” he asked, with mock innocence. “I’m just reminiscing with an old friend.”
“This doesn’t feel like just reminiscing."
He stared intensely into my eyes. “No, not YET it doesn’t.” He grinned. “But it fucking will. Soon.”

4 Bow Tie Stars

Preppy is back. But uh...he's not the same. After going through the torture of the hands of Chop, Preppy came out alive, but he's not the same. He's quirky and not-give-a-f*** attitude isn't there. And he's keeping all his feelings and demons of what happened inside, no matter  how much King, Ray, and Bear want to help. 

While Preppy  has been "dead," the world he always known has moved on. Life didn't stop for his friends. And seeing the one woman who he walked away from has him confused even more. 

Dre was shocked to to say the least when she finds out that Preppy is alive. And the reason why she is back at Logan's Beach is for closure and to move on with her life. But with Preppy back, she's not sure if she can. And Preppy can't let her go! 

Part two of this book is filled with lots of surprises and twists. I love getting the dual POVs of Preppy and Dre. Getting inside Preppy's head is crazy, but knowing what he is thinking always makes me laugh and love him even more. As we all know this is a three part book and it does live you hanging!

Friction by Emily Snow

Former overachiever Lucy WillIams sucks at adulting. 

Recent divorce, check. 

Pending lawsuit, check. 

A move back to Boston to live with her mother, triple check. 

It can't get much worse, right? 

When she starts her new marketing job at EXtreme Effects, she's positive shit’s stopped hitting the fan. Sure, what she's advertising is a little ... unorthodox, but it pays the bills. And since she's seconds away from becoming Lucy Williams: Wednesday Night Bingo Enthusiast, she needs money to get the hell out of her mother’s house. 

The only problem is her boss, Mr. Extreme himself: Jace Exley. He’s everything any sane woman dreams of—alpha, successful, ridiculously gorgeous. He's also Lucy’s worst nightmare. Because like every overachiever, she has that underachiever she brushed off. The slacker who, once upon a time ago, was the object of her dirtiest schoolgirl fantasies. 

Jace Exley—with his sarcastic smirk and delicious accent—just happens to be that guy. 

And the friction between them? 

Well, that's the only adulting Lucy seems to be winning at...

3.5 Stars

What a great read! Friction is humorous, sexy and filled with plenty of hot "friction" between the two characters, Lucy and Jace.

I loved Lucy's character. She was struggling to start over after a bad marriage, losing her career and then moving back home. But she never gave up. She is determined to get back on her feet--she's a brilliant Marketer and she knows she'll be a great asset to any company. She's just needs to land an interview. 

Jace Exley has always been the bad boy in high school. He was good looking, and he had the attitude of he didn't give a f***! He knew the overachiever Lucy back then and when she walks into his business for a job, he is stunned. And so is Lucy! He is the last person that she thought she be turning to for a job. Not only does the man drive her insane, but she can't help how attracted she is to him.

This book had me laughing. I love the way Jace pushed Lucy's button and the chemistry between these two is hot.

Finding Kyle by Sawyer Bennett

When you’ve lived your life as a criminal…
When you’ve done unspeakable things …
When your soul has become dark and stained…

The path to redemption begins where you least expect it.

Kyle Sommerville is in hiding and doesn’t want to be found by anyone. Certainly not by his quirky, free-spirited neighbor who’s managed to push her way past the walls he’s built around him. But Jane Cresson’s indomitable will and insatiable curiosity about her reclusive neighbor makes it impossible for Kyle to stay immersed in his dark world.

Little by little, she claws through his shell.
Day by day, she gets him to smile a little more.
Night by night, they both find pleasure they never knew existed.

When Kyle’s terrible past is exposed, Jane begins to think she’s in over her head. Can her love for this broken man finally clear his path to redemption, or will Kyle’s darkness finally extinguish every bit of hope she’s put into him?

4.5 Stars

Another hit from Ms. Sawyer! This was my final read for 2016 and what a way to end the year with a great book. Finding Kyle is suspenseful, hot and of course steamy!

Kyle Sommerville has been deep undercover as an ATF agent and now is in protective hiding and ends up in a small town just trying to survive waiting for the bad guys to be behind bars forever. Kyle is ready to live life again as best he can. But for now, he needs to stay low. But he's having a hard time staying away from his quirky neighbor, Jane Cresson. 

I adored Jane's character. She is funny, quirky and was just full of life! And I loved the random movie quotes! So when she starts spying on her mysterious and very hot neighbor, Jane can't help herself to get to know him and try to break down his walls. 

Kyle has been through a lot. He's seen and done some very illegal activities while undercover. His life is tainted and letting someone good and pure into his life, like Jane, just doesn't feel right. So no matter how funny, sweet and Jane is, Kyle can't let her in. 

But Jane is persistent and everyday they spend time together, she breaks down his walls. But when his past and undercover life catches up with him, it puts Jane in danger.

Finding Kyle is a fantastic read by my go-to-author!

Next to Never (Fall Away #4.5) by Penelope Douglas

New York Times bestseller Penelope Douglas introduces Quinn, younger sister to Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon, in the latest novella in the series that began with Jared and Tate in Bully....

Quinn Caruthers has several problems.  

Her father, Jason, and her three older brothers, Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon.  

Under the close watch of the men in her family, Quinn has found it nearly impossible to spread her wings—or even date—without them jumping in to hover. And when a family friend—several years older—from her childhood captures her heart, she knows they’re going to be a problem. Lucas Morrow is a man—experienced, sophisticated, and important. And knowing her brothers, he may as well be forbidden.  

But Lucas left town years ago and shows no signs of returning. Quinn knows she shouldn’t wait for him anymore.     

But then a package turns up on her doorstep with no return address and its contents reveal family secrets that threaten to turn Quinn’s world upside down. She’s never asked about the tumultuous path of her parents’ romantic history, but she soon learns their happy marriage had a very rocky and passionate start.  

As she begins to see things around her with new eyes, Quinn will have to make tough choices about whether she’ll keep waiting…or finally go after what she really wants.


5 Never Ending Stars!

I'm telling you...this series, these characters, the story lines with these characters can go on forever and never end and I'll be just happy! I can't get enough of Jared and Tate's friends and family.

Next to Never is an unexpected story within a story. Yeah, that probably didn't make sense, but it's a must read for fans. This books explains the beginning of Jared and Madoc's friendship, the relationship between Jason and Katherine and how the Bully gang all came together. And again, I'll just say I loved every page!

There's not much to be said about this novella without spoiling the surprises, but I guaranteed you'll be consumed by this read and wanting more by the time you read the last page. I know I am. Just to note, it's good to refresh you memory of who is who. There are so many kids between the families and it's easy to forget who belongs to who. Here's a great family tree that the author shares: 

I'm ready to read about the next generation of the Fall Away series!

Release Day: Ego Maniac by Vi Keeland

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00072]       

The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated. Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent. I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind. I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing. And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

Blog Tour/Review: Commander in Chief (White House #2) by Katy Evans

The sizzling second installment of the White House series, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

We fell in love during the campaign.
The stakes were high.
Reputations could have been ruined.
Scandal hovered over us like a cloud.
Now the man I love is the President of the United States of America.
And its not my vote he is after.
He wants it all.
My heart. My body. My soul.
He wants me by his side.
In the White House.
Normalcy will be gone from my life, privacy forgotten.
I am only twenty three. I just wanted to play a part in history. But it seems like history wasn't done with me. The part where I lost my heart to Matthew Hamilton? It was only the beginning...

Mr. President, Book 1

He looks devilishly handsome.

His hair is combed back and oh, how I love every chiseled inch of his face. He’s the first to move, prying his hands from his pockets, eyes flaring, inhaling visibly—his inhale stretching the fabric of that black tux.

Disbelief and a punch of longing to have all of this man, his love and his name and his babies, hits me as he approaches. I’m gazing at him walk to me down the hall of the White House residence, both of us ready to attend a social dinner. My first public event with him.

I need a moment, or a thousand moments, to adjust to this new role.
Matt continues advancing—with every step his eyes drinking me in, his lips curling in a seductive, appreciative smile.

“You ready?” He stretches out his hand.

I nod and look at that hand—the hand I’ve held so many times, and that held me. I slide my fingers down the length of his, and he grips them and leads me down the staircase with him.

4 Presidential Stars

Matt Hamilton is the next Commander in Chief! He had our votes during the election and our continued support during his term! Seriously, why can't he be real and our real life US President? 

I've been waiting patiently to find out how Charlotte and Matt will handle their secret relationship now that he's been voted in as the highest US power. I knew it wasn't going to be easy. And it wasn't. Matt and Charlotte fell in love during the campaign trail. But continuing their relationship would cause scandal, public opinions on their personal life and security risks for Charlotte. Or will it? 

Matt is determined to prove to the world for his love for Charlotte, but he just needs to convince her to stand by his side. But taking it slow 

I salute this Commander In Chief!
