 Excerpt 

“Ella,” he rasps. “You’re gonna fuckin’ kill me. Sweet Jesus, baby.” He closes the distance between us in two strides. When he’s close enough, his hands grip on my hips and pull me into him. Our bodies clash, my blood ignites. Need washes through me. Damon’s scent envelopes me, he smells pure male. My chest heaves as I look up into his eyes, my breasts brushing against his chest with every inhale. “I can see everything, beauty. Every fucking thing. The rounded globes of your perfect arse, the mound of your pussy, the dimples at the back of your knees.” His hands move down to grip my arse cheeks. He squeezes roughly before pulling me into his hard cock. I moan as the move hits the perfect spot. “God, I need to keep you.”

Sweeter Excerpt 
“Morning,” he whispers into my neck as he nuzzles. I gasp at the soft stroke of his tongue on my neck. “I can smell you. I’ll have your scent stuck in my head all day. I need a taste.” He sucks my earlobe into his mouth as he nibbles me. “Just one taste. I have to have one taste.” The huskiness of his desire filled voice makes my knees weak. I melt into his body, letting the feelings he’s evoking within me take over.

Blog Tour - Easy Silence by Beth Rinyu




Title: Easy Silence
Author: Beth Rinyu
Genre: New Adult, Romance
 Release Date: July 9, 2015



Blurb

They say you never forget your first love. No matter how many more come along or how much time goes by, there will always be that one person who will be forever embedded deep inside your heart and soul. For me, that was Jaxson Callahan.

We were complete opposites. I was a senator’s daughter. My parents were always too busy keeping up appearances on the political scene to show me love, so instead they bought my affection.

He was the son of a woman who allowed men to use and abuse her as well as him, just for her next fix.

We became each other’s solace during that summer we met, creating a lifetime of memories in three short months. I provided him with a sense of hope that there was more than just the harsh reality of the life he had grown accustomed to, and he showed me a genuine love that I had been yearning for my entire life. We vowed to be together forever. I loved him and he loved me…. and nothing would keep us apart.

Nothing except the secrets that were hiding in that small seaside town.
Secrets that altered our destiny. We were never given any warning as we watched our future shake, crumble and disappear altogether, leaving us with nothing but memories of a bittersweet past.

Life can be beautiful.
Life can be kind.

And, life can be heartless…..because nothing about our situation was fair.


Natalie's Review

Wow!!!! I don't even know where to begin with my review. I have never felt so emotionally ripped apart after reading a book.

Sam on the surface is the all American rich kid. Never going against her fathers wishes she does the duty and applies for the college of his choosing for a life he has mapped out for her. Deciding to spend the summer at her grandmothers beach house she feels it's the only place she has ever felt normal. One day she meets Jax, on the outside he screams everything she shouldn't want but something about him draws her in and she knows that nothing in her life will ever be the same again.
Jax is broken, no he is more than that he is shattered. All he has ever known is hatred from everyone who should have loved him. Unable to show love or be loved he tries his hardest to stay away from Sam, but when he is with her we see a shard of the person he is and should be as the relationship between them grows we see Jax slowly get put back together.

The love that develops between these two is consuming, not very often can an author get the intensity and depth of true love to scream from the pages but this author done it in bounds. Nothing ever felt corny or cheesy it just always felt right.  I loved this book. I experienced every single emotion along with the characters. hope, fear, longing, despair, heartbreak. Pain, love it was all there, and in some chapters I was a blubbering mess I actually sobbed so hard I could barely breathe.  This is the first book I have ever read by Beth but it most definitely won't be my last.
An amazing captivating breath stealing five stars from me.

Excerpt

“So, did you have a good birthday?” I asked.

“It’s just another day. Nothing special about it. I’d just as soon forget the day I was born.”

“Why are you so hard on yourself?” I second guessed myself for asking as the words spewed from my mouth.

“You just wouldn’t understand, Samantha.”

My whole life I hated being called that name, but hearing him say it was kind of nice. It was as if it was his and his name only for me. I was his Samantha, and he was my Jaxson.

“Maybe I could try. I’m a pretty good listener.”

He took another sip of his lemonade and placed it on the table. “I really have to go.” He stood up and looked down at the ground.

“I’m sorry. I – I didn’t’ mean to pry,” I said, standing up beside him. “It’s just, sometimes it helps to express how you’re feeling, and I’m –” He took me completely off guard when he grabbed my face in his hands, pulled me toward him, and placed a warm gentle kiss on my lips before smoothly slipping his tongue into my mouth. I was speechless as I pulled in my bottom lip still wanting to taste more of him when the kiss was over.


“You wanted me to express myself,” he whispered. “Well, that’s what I’ve been feeling from the time I walked up on this porch. I wanted to see if your lips felt as soft as they look. I wanted to get as close to you as I possibly could and breathe in your perfume that drives me crazy. And, maybe for one second of my life, I wanted to feel like I was worthy of someone like you. That’s how I was feeling, Samantha.”





Author Bio

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen - or in today's world a touch of the keyboard. I am the author of The Exception To The Rule, An Unplanned Lesson, An Unplanned Life, Drowning In Love, A Cry for Hope, A Will To Change, Blind Side of Love, When The Chips Are Down and Easy Silence.

My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? I'm a mom of twin teenage boys, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of relaxation.

Promo Tour - The Rock and Roll Queen of Bedlam by Marilee Brothers









Trash-talking, soft-hearted teacher Allegra Thome won’t let anything get in the way of her search for her missing student, least of all her attraction to Sloan, a rough-around-the-edges but totally irresistible DEA agent with an agenda entirely his own. 


BABY, COME AND GET IT 
Meet Allegra Thome. A teacher for behavior-disordered teens by day and a karaoke singer by night, this leggy blonde knows just where to find trouble—like Sloan, a tough, sexy DEA agent, in the middle of a drug bust. He clears her of all charges, but their intense chemistry leads to some passionate encounters in…unusual locations. 


Their unorthodox romance is put on hold when one of Allegra’s students, Sara Stepanek, goes missing. Through cryptic messages and bizarre codes in a journal the girl hints at psychological manipulation and foul play, and suddenly Allegra doesn’t know who to trust. Even Sloan has his own reasons for wanting to find Sara. Time is running out in the frantic search, and Allegra will learn the answers she seeks are more shocking—and deadly—than she could ever imagine. 

KEYNOTE
Leggy, karaoke-signing Allegra Thome spends her days teaching dysfunctional teens and her nights with wealthy new boyfriend, Michael. The rough patch following Allegra’s divorce is over, and life is grand. But when Allegra lands in the middle of a drug bust and meets Sloan, a rough-around-the-edges DEA agent and, later that day, a kid from her class disappears, things quickly head south. Sloan, who has the tact of a roadside bomb, is attracted to Allegra and alienates Michael. To make matters worse, nobody seems to care that Allegra’s student, Sara Stepanek, is missing. Allegra’s search for Sara becomes a race against time with dead bodies piling up and her own life in peril.

Short Excerpt

“Panty hose are a tool of the devil. On a tall woman, the crotch hangs at knee level, so she’s forced to crouch and shuffle like Quasimodo. If a woman’s vertically challenged, the things slither downward, pooling around her ankles like a reptilian second skin. My troubles began with panty hose.”

Release day Blitz - Simmering Ice by Veronica Forand & Susan Scott Shelley

Physical therapist Annie Davidson is great at her job but unlucky when it comes to love. She’s just out of a bad relationship. A really bad relationship. All she can do is focus on work...that is until she runs into professional hockey player Alec O’Meara. She’s a touch insecure and doesn’t understand why he’s interested in her.
Despite being one of the biggest players on the team, right winger Alec O'Meara prefers finesse over force. After the tragic death of his wife, he likes to keep things loose on and off the ice. But the red-headed Annie challenges his beliefs and makes him think about taking their relationship to the net.
The passion and fun they share is addicting and makes them long for more. But her insecurities that she's not good enough, and his anxiety over a long-term commitment will keep them apart, unless they can find a way to break through the defenses they've built around their hearts.
