Drunk Dial

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

EXCERPT

 After that evening, I hadn’t heard back from him for a few days.

Then, one night, a text came in from the same phone number I recognized as Landon’s. It was the first time he’d texted me.

I looked down to find he’d sent a photo.

I gasped.

It was a heavily tatted man set against the backdrop of the ocean at sunset. Oh, my. It was him—a selfie.

Fuck. Me. He was beautiful.

I wouldn’t have even known it was Landon were it not for the blue eyes I recognized instantly. The shaggy, caramel hair I remembered from the past was now a darker shade
of brown and shorter, cropped closer to his head. His arms and his chest were inked, his body so perfect that if I squinted, it almost resembled carved stone.

I couldn’t stop looking at him. My eyes wanted nothing more than to explore the ridges and valleys of his stunning body.

Was this a cruel joke?

This was not Landon!

But, it was.

With my thumb and middle finger, I kept zooming in and out, examining the details of the ink across his chest and on his arms. There was really nothing sexier than a guy with perfect arms and a full sleeve tattoo.

Even though his lips seemed fuller than I recalled, they still curved into a familiar grin that oozed confidence. The eyes and that smile were the only traces of the boy I remembered. I wished I could’ve leapt through the screen to smell him, touch him.

“Hi, Landon,” I whispered, for a brief moment talking to the boy inside, not the man in front of me.

This Landon was the polar opposite of the Ivy League yuppie image previously in my head. The only thing the man pictured might have majored in was badassery. He looked like a rockstar, a rule breaker, displaying a sense of arousing danger—someone who must have had women from all walks of life drooling over him for the sheer fact that either they couldn’t have him or shouldn’t have him. It suddenly became clear why, as he’d alluded to, a woman might have been begging him for sex. That made me wonder if he had any secret tattoos in spots I wasn’t allowed to see.

God.

A fire was burning inside of me, and I knew it was my crush exploding into a full-blown obsession.

A self-conscious feeling came over me. If I was scared to show him a picture of myself before, now I was really hesitant.

The message that went along with the photo simply read:

Now show me you.

About YOUR FIERCE LOVE

The strong and sexy Blake Bennett is downright irresistible. And Clara Abernathy is doing everything she can to resist his charm.

After spending her life in group homes, Clara yearns for the love and warmth of a true family. With the Bennetts treating her like their own, she can’t possibly fall for Blake. That would be crossing a line…

But when Clara needs a temporary place to live, and she accepts Blake’s offer to move next door to him, things escalate. Suddenly, she’s not only supposed to resist the man who’s hell-bent on having her, but the TV station she works for is determined to dig up some dirt on the Bennett family.

Blake knows family friends are off-limits, and Clara is more off-limits than anyone. But Clara’s sweetness and sass fill a hole in him he wasn’t even aware of. Soon, he finds himself gravitating toward her, willing to do anything to make her happy.

Blake enjoys bending the rules—much more than following them, but will bending this one be taking it too far?

Review

KTFourStars

After growing up in group homes, Clara appreciates the warmth and love the Bennett family gives her as they treat her like one of their own. Excited about moving into her new apartment, her plans suddenly change when it isn’t ready and Clara needs a temporary place to live. It’s no surprise that someone from the Bennett clan offers her a solution, things get interesting when said person is Blake, the one Bennett that Clara feels a strong attraction to.

“The real question is how will you resist him while you live next door?” Penny pushes.

“Excellent question. My rational side says he’s a great friend, and his family treats you like one of their own, so you’d better not mingle. My dark side says, he’s hot and single, and he’d know how to make your lady parts tingle.”

Clara Abernathy is a strong, hardworking woman who is afraid to put herself out there in many different ways. She’s an artist and loves making illustrations for children’s books, but rather consider her passion a hobby and not risk a safe income. Same happens to her in love. She has feelings for one of the Bennett brothers for quite some time, but rather hide them than risk the relationship she has nourished with the family. Once upon a time she was familyless, so risking the connection she has with the Bennetts is not an option. Even if what she feels for Blake is more than anything she’s ever felt for a man.

“What about you?” he asks. “Do you date much?”

“I try, but I keep meeting men who want different things than I do. They are looking for fun or just hanging out in a friend-with-benefits sort of way.”

“What are you looking for?”

“I want a family, so someone nice and dependable. Someone safe and not argumentative. Trustworthy. I know some people think safe is boring, but I don’t think that at all. I think is just… safe.”

Blake Bennet is, and Clara puts it, Blakelicious. He’s everything a woman wants in her life: He’s intelligent, handsome, hardworking, and loaded (in every sense). He comes from a lovely family, and because they love him, they meddle in his relationship with Clara. He’s known to be a bit of a player, and has never acted on his feelings for her, but as Clara moves to the apartment next door, it becomes inevitable for him to act on his attraction towards her.

“You want safe and─what was that word? Nonargumentative. Don’t think anyone ever used those words to describe me.” Leaning even closer, he adds in low baritone, “But you want this─us─even more.”

Their living situation and dynamics are super fun and sexy.

“This is so inconvenient. The corridor is too small, and you’re far too hot.”

The Bennet family is a great group of people. I don’t blame Clara at all for guarding her place as a “family friend.” What she doesn’t realize is that by protecting said place in the family she is also limiting herself to really belong to the clan, and more importantly, find true love with Blake.

We’re nine siblings in total, and six are married. Single people are a disappearing species in my family. Summer, my twin brother Daniel, and I are the last remaining musketeers.

It is the first book of the series that I’ve read, and I can’t wait to read the rest. I had no problem following the story even if this is the seventh book.

Clara and Blake are a great pair. I love getting to know them as individuals and as a couple. Their relationship and dynamic is fun and so very hot. I found the book sexy and entertaining. It’s a great read!

“I want to make one thing clear. There’s going to be rough fucking and sweet lovemaking and everything in between. But it will always be more than fun under the covers. Okay?”

by Meghan March

Then I got the call no one wants, and I’m back in New Orleans.
What I don’t expect is for her to be here too.
Another line you don’t cross?
Don’t touch your best friend’s little sister.
She’s always been off-limits.
Too bad I don’t follow the rules anymore.

Excerpt

“Fine. If you don’t want to play me, I’m sure there’s someone in this bar who will.”

She rose from the bar stool and smoothed her dress down her thighs. I swore it looked longer at the cemetery than it did right now, inching up her toned legs. The shoulders and chest were sheer black lace, as sophisticated as could be, but the lace took on a sexier edge in the dim light of the bar. I’d lay money on her being the classiest thing this place had ever seen. And damn, what those heels did for her . . .

I ripped my gaze away from her ass to focus on her face.

Her lips flattened in obstinate challenge before she strutted toward the pool table. And yeah, I used the word strutted because there was no other way to describe how she walked in those stilettos now that her attitude was flaring.

Heads turned to follow her progress, and two guys jumped off their stools to follow her.

Oh, hell no. Not a chance, assholes.

I pushed off my seat and stalked toward her. Ari’s back was to me when I stopped behind her at the cue rack. She spun around, unaware of my presence, and smacked into my chest, a pool stick trapped between us. She sucked in a breath, jerking her head up.

“Sorry. Didn’t realize you were so close.”

Years ago, she never would have lost track of where I was if we were in the same room. The realization was a blow to my ego, although not unexpected. I no longer made the cut on her priority list, and that
stung.

Rather than move and give her space, I reached around her to snag a cue off the rack, letting my arm brush her shoulder.

Ah . . . there it is. Her facial expression remained static, but her involuntary shiver gave her away. Maybe I’m not off the list completely.

I didn’t know why it mattered, but after the last few brutal days, I needed something good to distract me from the shit show that was my life. And there was no doubt in my mind that Ariel Sampson was everything good.

Her spine straightened and she bobbed around me, avoiding contact in favor of racking the balls and lining them up.

“Do you want to break?” she asked.

“Ladies first.”

Ari rolled her eyes and reached for the chalk. With her stick prepped, she leaned over the edge of the table, her ass jutting out and the hem of her dress riding up her thigh.

Lord . . . I groaned silently. This was torture.

Haven’t I been through enough? I tossed the question skyward and received no sign the big man had heard me.

I tore my gaze off her ass and scanned the bar. Mistake. My fist tightened around the pool cue as a reflex, but that didn’t mean I wouldn’t use it to smack every jerk in this bar back into line if they didn’t quit staring. Double standard? Sure. But I didn’t care.

With a step behind her, I blocked the most direct view and turned to glare at all of them. Thankfully, Heath’s interest was hooked on the waitress working our table. One by one, the gazes dropped away, and I turned back to Ari, marginally satisfied that they picked up what I was throwing down. Off-limits, assholes.

Ari cursed and stood up straight, leaning lightly on her pool cue. “Dammit. I had that shot.”

I scanned the green felt and found half her balls were missing. “Jesus, what were you doing? Trying to clear the table?”

Her nose went up in the air. “Trying? If I wanted to clear the table, it would be clear. It’s just angles.”

“Brainiac as always.”

Ari shrugged, but I caught a hint of a smile. “Didn’t you hear? It’s cool to be a geek now.”

I had no doubt that wherever she lived in California, she was exactly what was cool. Shit, she had every man’s attention in this bar.

“You were always cool in my book, Red. My turn.” Even though I wanted to wait for her smile, I chalked my cue and sank two shots before missing the third.

“Not bad.” Her nonchalant tone made me grin.

“I try.”

Her eyes finally locked on mine. “I succeed.”

Hell. Why was that statement so damned sexy coming from her lips?

She pushed off her pool cue and spun around to face the table again, her dress sliding up another inch as she bent over the table.

My dick pulsed against my jeans.

Heath is going to kill me.

Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers features a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re sassy, flawed, and so easy to relate to, you’ll be begging to enter their circle of friends!

Hearts at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster’s steamy romance novel Seaside Hearts. The stories and characters remain the same and convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.

 

In HEARTS at SEASIDE…

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the most alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

EXCERPT

There should be an unwritten rule about drooling over construction workers, but Jenna Ward was sure glad there wasn’t. She sat on the porch of the Bookstore Restaurant, soaking up the deliciousness of the three bronzed males clad in nothing more than jeans and glistening muscles that flexed and bulged like an offering to the gods as they forced thick, sticky tar into submission. Their jeans hung low on strong hips, gripping their powerful thighs like second skins and ending in scuffed and tarred work boots. What red-blooded woman didn’t get worked up over a gorgeous shirtless man in work boots?

Heaven help her, because she needed this distraction to take away her desire for Peter Lacroux, which went hand in hand with summers on the Cape and consumed her in the nine months they were apart. She zeroed in on one particularly handsome blond construction worker. His hair was nearly white, his jaw square and manly. She wanted to march right out to the middle of the road that split the earth between the restaurant and the beach and be manhandled into submission. Right there on the tar. Wrestled and groped until all thoughts of Pete evaporated.

“Wipe the drool from your chin, chica.” Amy Maples handed Jenna a margarita and, pointedly, a fresh napkin, as she settled into the chair across from her. “Goodness, woman. What’s up with you this summer? I swear you’re in heat. I can practically smell your pheromones from over here.”

Jenna gulped her drink and righted her red bikini top, which was trying its hardest to relieve itself of her enormous breasts. Even her bikini top was ready for a man. A real man. A man who craved her as much as she craved him.

Jenna reluctantly turned away from Testosterone Road and faced her best friends. The women she had spent her summers with here in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, for as long as she could remember and the women she hoped would help her through her most important summer ever.

Review of Hearts at Seaside

KTFourStars

Hearts at Seaside is a story about a vivacious girl whose heart got stolen by a boy’s many years ago.

“Goodness, woman.  What’s up with you this summer? I swear you’re in heat. I can practically smell your pheromones from over here.”

The main character in this book, Jenna Ward, is a teacher who spends her summer vacations at Cape Code. She has a great group of friends even if her family life is not the best at the moment (her parents are divorced and her mother is having a meltdown because her father is remarrying). Jenna has the longest crush on a boy named Pete. He lives in Seaside but she’s never acted on her feelings for him. This summer being so complicated, her she decides to stop waiting for Pete and see his life and move on

Thinking about Pete made her stomach quiver. Was that out of longing for what she’d never have, or was it something more?

Pete Lacroux is a really nice men. He’s a workaholic, a very hard worker, and loves his family. He has a love interest in Jenna for a while, but he’s never wanted to act on his feelings for her because he doesn’t want to ruin their friendship. Besides, there is something that stops him to have a relationship; his mother passed away some years ago and his father is an alcoholic. Having a girl in his bed every night is not an option for him since his father calls him almost every night. Suddenly things change, when Jenna decides to look for love somewhere else and Peter sees her with another man, he decides enough was enough and go get the girl.

“One day it’ll be my name coming off your lips as you fall apart, and I promise you, after that, when you forget how to talk, it’ll be worth every erotic, sensual second.”

One of the things I enjoyed the most about the book was Jenna’s group of friends. Some of them already settled down in Seaside with their loved ones, leaving Jenna and Amy as the only single pair. Both girls keep waiting for their love interest to wake up and start a relationship with them. In this book, all the girls are really supportive towards Jenna and Peter, trying to find new ways to get them together. They’re really silly and funny, it’s the kind of girls you want as your group of friends

“You’ve never been afraid of a man in your life, so whatever’s running around in that cute little organized head of yours probably had nothing to do with being afraid of him.  Maybe you act afraid of Pete because of what letting Pete see the real you means in your head.  What it means to you.”

In conclusion Hearts at Seaside is a very fun and sweet summer story to read. It is interesting and there’s a lot of details to learn about each character. You get to know them, how their life works, all a while they do the quirks and things that make them unique and believable. It is certainly the kind of book that you can take to the beach and enjoy your day.

“It’s not this place that’s magical, Pete.  It’s you.  It’s always been you.”
