About ONCE UPON A REAL GOOD TIME (Coming 9/10/2018):

That smoking hot one-night stand with a former rock star?
Turns out he's my son's new music teacher. Oops.
But I didn't know that the night I met Campbell. All I knew was he played my body the same way he played a guitar — like he owned it.
My libido is still high-fiving me after being self-served for too many years, and we’re both ready for another night or two of fun, especially since we don’t just have chemistry in bed — we connect over everything.
That is, until I learn he’s the man who’ll be coming to my house twice a week to teach my son — the best music lessons money can buy.
Time to turn down the volume on our shenanigans. Only that’s easier said than done.
***
I can rock a guitar solo in front of thousands, I can write chart-topping tunes, and I can absolutely stop thinking about my student’s mother naked.
After all, I’m a single parent too, and I know what it’s like to put your kid first. That’s what I do every damn day.
Trouble is, now that I’ve had Mackenzie, it’s hard — and I do mean hard — to stop wanting her. Harder too when I get to know her, and learn she’s an awesome mom, a great friend, and, oh yeah, she happens to get along perfectly with my daughter.
All we have to do is set some rules. No dating, no nookie when the kids are around, and no one gets hurt.
It’s all working out beautifully. Until we start breaking the rules, one by one.
Making music with her in the bedroom is easy. But will we be more than just a real good time when the music stops?

BLIND LOVE BY KELLY ELLIOTT-EXCERPT REVEAL



Harley and I had our whole lives planned out, until her plans changed, and those plans didn't include me. After years spent trying to get the love of my life out of my head and repair my too-damaged heart, I thought I was finally moving on…but life sure has a funny way of letting you know when those best-laid plans are about to be turned upside down. My entire world was rocked when Harley unexpectedly moved back to Oak Springs. Every miserable moment I'd spent trying to get over her and every hour I'd wasted trying to erase her from my life came back to haunt me the minute she walked into my office, fear in her eyes, and asked me for help. Would I…or better yet, could I walk away from her this time after all that she had put me through? What I really needed to know is would I be able to forge ahead with the future I had so meticulously planned—one that didn't include Harley—or will her return finally open my eyes to a future full of endless possibilities? Blind Love is book five in the Cowboys and Angels series.

Once I turned the corner I ran into something solid and knew I had spoken too soon. “Harley? Darling, what are you doing?” Taking a step back, I looked up into the deepest of blue eyes. They almost left me breathless. John Parker. The man was the older image of all of his five sons. Handsome. Built. And a smile that made your knees week. “Oh shit,” I mumbled. “Hell, shit, fuck,” Chloe whispered next to me. “Chloe Lynn!” John said. “Hey, what’s going on?” My eyes darted to Tripp. Great. Just great. “Oh hey. I was, um, just showing Chloe your new puppy.” Tripp’s eyes about popped out of his head. Of course, the little rascal who had started all of this was standing next to me giggling. “Ah. Come again?” Tripp asked. “You got a dog, Tripp? That’s amazing,” John said as he turned and smiled big. “I’ve been telling him for years he needed a dog.” I let out a nervous laugh. “Well, he’s got a cute one!” “Wait. What?” Tripp said as he shot daggers at me. “Who’s got a cute what?” Trevor asked, walking in behind Tripp and his father. Of course, the whole damn family would be walking through the very door I was trying to escape out of. We would have been better off going out the front door. “Tripp’s got a new puppy!” Chloe called out as I hit her on the arm as a warning. “Wait!” Tripp cried. I panicked and did the only thing I could think of. I unwrapped the puppy and shoved it in Trevor’s face. When he was little he was a sucker for a cute puppy; I was hoping things hadn’t changed. “Oh, my gosh! Look at this little guy,” Trevor said in a baby voice as he took the puppy from my hands. “Great, you want him? He’s yours,” Tripp said. “It’s a girl!” Chloe said with a clap of her hands. I hit her a few times to get her to take it back a few. We weren’t out of the woods yet. “Aww, he’s so cute. Don’t worry, Tripp. I won’t steal your girl.” Trevor looked at me when he said that and winked, causing my cheeks to heat up. “Now wait a second here,” Tripp started. I knew I had to cut him off. “Tripp mentioned he wanted a hound dog, and when I saw this little girl in town, well, I had to get her.” I could feel angry eyes on me, but I kept going. “I mean, she was the last puppy and I felt so bad, I had to take her.” Looking at Tripp, I motioned with my head to Chloe, hoping he would catch on. “He was afraid y’all might be mad if she was in the house so I was fixin’ to take her to the barn.” “What? Nonsense. Tripp, we don’t mind your puppy being in the house,” John stated. “Hell, Patches is always in the house,” Trevor said with a deep rumbling laugh. John sighed and lifted his cowboy hat to run his hand through his dark hair. A sigh of resignation escaped his lips. “What’s her name, Tripp?” Trevor asked. Chloe grabbed onto my hand and squeezed it hard as I held my breath. It felt like forever before Tripp finally spoke. “Hemingway’s Whiskey. Hemi, for short.” I pinched my brows together as I tried to figure out how in the hell he came up with that name off the top of his head. I knew it was a Kenny Chesney song, and Tripp liked his Kenny Chesney. But Hemi? “What the hell kind of name is that for a girl?” Trevor asked. Tripp forced a smile. “The moment I found out the dog was mine, I wanted to drink a fifth of whiskey.”

I’ll let her do anything.
But when she hurts herself to protect me?
That’s a line in the sand.









GAH

AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!

The ending. Again! AAARRGGGHHH!!!

How am I going to wait until August to see how this ends? I literally don't know what to say, other than how BADLY I want to talk about this book...and how much I refuse to spoil it. And, at this point, there's so much that telling you would give away things, that have happened, that seem like they will happen...so, I am going to say nothing. 

What I can say is that this is building beautifully. The relationships, the tension, the dying (on the part of the reader) to know what happens next is all going the way (sometimes) I thought it might...and others, not at all.

So, what I can tell you about this book? You need to read it. Start at the beginning, it's worth it. Really.

I enjoyed this book, and I recommend it.

About CD Reiss:

_21A6258_pp-fbCD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets. Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

HAPPY HOUR BY PIPER RAYNE - BLOG TOUR AND ARC REVIEW

HH_BLOG TOUR.png

The perfect man for her is the one she hates most. #gofigure

PRHappyHourBookCover5x8_BW_300

Dating is hard.
Dating in your thirties is even harder.
Dating in Chicago is harder still.
I haven't given up on finding my happily-ever-after, but in the age of swiping right and Netflix and chill, I'm wondering if everything is as temporary as my marriage turned out to be.
Truth is, there is one guy I can't get my mind off of.
Roarke Baldwin has salt and pepper hair I've dreamed of running my hands through and I'm pretty sure that if I checked he really does have a six pack of abs underneath his suit. And I've always wondered what that stubble on his face would feel like between my thighs.
The problem? He's the one man I hate more than my ex-husband…
His divorce attorney.


The build up to the story of Hannah and Roarke was perfection in the last 2 books, so by the time we got to this one, I was ready.

I loved so much about this title, that he took her out of their "normal" to see the things he doesn't share; his reaction to her statement that she had forgiven him for his part in her divorce; his willingness to let her into his life and take a risk for what he wanted.  All of it worked so well and made me actually believe that Hannah, as independent and angry as she started the book, would be willing to get involved with him and to let some of that anger go.

I was so frustrated with her at the end, but I also understood her initial response to the realization of how she acted and how willing she was to believe the worst about Roarke.  It made sense, it worked, and it was in character...even though I was frustrated with her (and so was Roarke) I understood why she made the decision and why it worked.

Of all of the titles in this series, I enjoyed this one the most.  I think because there were 2 previous books that built up to them ending up exactly where they are in this one.  I also loved the taboo, the idea of dating someone who has seen you at your worst and who, by doing his job, was directly responsible for the "worst" moments in your past is a leap of faith and a willingness to give in to a powerful attraction.

I recommend this title, and I enjoyed it.

Excerpt:
I press the numbers on my phone with shaky fingers, bringing the receiver up to my ear and release a deep breath. He picks up after one ring. “I thought we were friends? Having your assistant call my assistant. Tsk. Tsk, Ms. Crowley.” Aggravation fuses together every cell in my body until I become an impenetrable wall. “First, we are not friends. Second, I would prefer to talk to you via our office phones.” There’s a brief second of silence where he’s probably realizing I called him through my office line. “Ahh… so now you have my number and I don’t have yours? That seems terribly unfair.” “I didn’t realize you cared about fairness?” I lean back in my chair and cross my legs. “You don’t know that much about me. It’s not like you know me intimately.” He lowers his voice on the last word and drags it out. I roll my eyes, happy we’re not face-to-face so he can’t see the flush in my cheeks. “You may have witnessed how I own the courtroom, but you know nothing about my private life. For instance, you don’t know if I like thrillers or comedies. Whether I prefer sorbet to ice cream or if I wear boxers or briefs.” “I don’t need to know those things,” I say with frustration, shutting my eyes to rid the vision from my head of him in tight black boxer briefs—since that’s my preference. “You want to know though.” A sexual innuendo pours out of his mouth and hits its mark between my thighs. “There you go making assumptions about my wants.” I pick up my pen, shuffling through paperwork. Anything to distract me from this ache. “I not only know what you want, I know what you need, Ms. Crowley.” I smack my hand down on my desk. “Okay Rico Suave, let’s talk about this venue you have access to and keep the discussion of undergarments for another time.” A beeping sound interrupts us. “Hold all my calls please, Kristen.” Then nothing for a moment. “Sorry about that but you know how busy I am.” “Yes, I’m sure destroying people’s lives takes a lot of time. So let’s stop the sexual innuendos and get down to business.” “Let’s meet tonight. You frequent Torrio’s. I frequent Torrio’s. Let’s do something crazy and have a drink together.” “I don’t need a drink at Torrio’s, Mr. Baldwin, I need a venue to house my gala. Now tell me your terms and I want the details of this venue you insist you can secure. I refuse to meet you until you supply me with that information.” I uncross my legs and tap my foot on the floor under me. “So demanding. I like it.” I can hear him shuffling papers in the background. “I’ll have my assistant message your assistant with all the details of the venue. I’m sure it will be of your liking. Then we’ll meet tonight at Torrio’s. Seven sharp. Consider it our own personal happy hour.” “I’m not committing to anything until I see the venue.” “Then I’ll see you at seven.” The phone clicks and I stare at the receiver in my hand. “Prick,” I murmur. A knock sounds on my door.
