Teaser: TYCOON by Katy Evans



TYCOON, an all-new standalone from Katy Evans
is coming June 20th!

Blurb
He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.
Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.
That man is gone.
In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.
He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.
The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.
It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.
I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.
And he doesn’t.
Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.
Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.
He's assessing every piece of me, to the point I've never felt so bare.
I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.
Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.
Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.

Blog Tour & Review: DUKE OF MANHATTAN by Louise Bay



Read Today! 
$2.99 for release week only
and then price goes up

A sexy, standalone romance.


BLURB:

I was born into British aristocracy, but I’ve made my fortune in Manhattan. New York is now my kingdom.

Back in Britain my family are fighting over who’s the next Duke of Fairfax. The rules say it’s me--if I’m married. It’s not a trade-off worth making. I could never limit myself to just one woman.

Or so I thought until my world is turned upside down. Now, the only way I can save the empire I built is to inherit the title I’ve never wanted -- so I need a wife.

To take my mind off business I need a night that’s all pleasure. I need to bury myself in a stranger.

The skim of Scarlett King’s hair over my body as she bends over . . .

The scrape of her nails across my chest as she screams my name . . .

The bite of her teeth on my shoulder just as we both reach the edge . . .

It all helps me forget.

I just didn’t bargain on finding my one night stand across the boardroom table the next day.

She might be my latest conquest but I have a feeling Scarlett King might just conquer me.

➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽➽

REVIEW:
"He's devastatingly attractive, richer than God and in need of a wife." If I were to have an arranged marriage, I would DEFINITELY want this scenario. A sexy as sin Duke, who’s incredibly attentive and sweet, driven and career oriented, AND mind-blowing in bed… sign me up please!

In DUKE OF MANHATTAN we meet Ryder Westbury, (who is a completely new character to the series), and Scarlett King whom we first were introduced to in KING OF WALLSTREET and then reintroduced to in PARK AVENUE PRINCE. Louise Bay set up the intrigue for her character almost immediately when we found out she was a divorcee and the circumstances surrounding that were concealed. Now, this is her story and how she builds herself up after a failed marriage and how she proves to herself (and her ex) that she is not the type of woman you leave behind.

Ryder is trying to protect his company from getting into the hands of someone he hates, but the only way to do that is to find a wife and soon. But after living a life with no want for a committed relationship, there is no one he can think of that would want to be his wife ONLY for appearances and NOT take something from him in the end. Until Scarlett. She has something to gain from this arrangement. After sharing a night of mind-blowing passion, Ryder finds out that her company is the one he is trying to acquire. He sees an answer to his predicament. Offer her a fake marriage, to save his company and in return, he’d pay off her company’s loans in full. She’d no longer be at risk of losing her company, CECILY FRAGRANCE and he’d save his company. He sees this as a win-win situation. Scarlett is hesitant at first, what with her first marriage failing. How can she marry someone only to get divorced AGAIN? But what choice does she have, she HAS to save CECILY FRAGRANCE in whatever means possible. But what happens when the pretending isn’t pretending anymore? After months of shared moments. Living together day in and day out. Continued passionate moments together. What happens when you want more…a future…everything? Neither Ryder nor Scarlett were looking for a future together. This was all supposed to be temporary. A means to an end. But fate has other plans. When hesitations are crumbling and feelings are forming, creating deeper feelings, hesitations set in once again. Insecurities surface. Can an arrangement such as this, turn into something MORE?

This is a story about love happening in the least expected of places. It’s about going on an adventure and taking risks. Facing your fears. It’s about finding out who you are and what you want out of life. I swear I fall in love with Louise Bay’s writing style with each book I read of hers. (This is only my 3rd book of hers). Each one has a uniqueness to it that makes it stand on its own and DUKE OF MANHATTAN was no exception. First of all, HELLO, sexy Brit *fans self*. I was drawn into the story right then and there. *wink* And let me tell you, I was not disappointed.

This story was fun and sexy and downright swoon worthy. Heck, I fell in love with Ryder right along with Scarlett. And on top of creating yet another extremely lovable man, I have to say, Louise Bay did a great job of developing Scarlett’s character. Scarlett went from this cautious woman to this confident, vibrant woman by the end of the book. It was that self-reliant woman that Ryder recognized in the beginning and whom he eventually helped shine through. They were perfect for each other!

DUKE OF MANHATTAN was executed wonderfully and was packed with everything I’ve come to love and expect from Louise Bay’s novels. The constant push and pull between Ryder and Scarlett. The ever-present combustible attraction and then the growing development of affection and love between them made for a fun, sexy and beautiful read. There was also a touch of angst in there, which keeps a reader intrigued. I would recommend this novel to any and all romance lovers.

Note- And of course we were treated with some scenes with previous characters: Sam and Grace (PARK AVENUE PRINCE), Max and Harper (KING OF WALLSTREET) and Violet, whom doesn’t have a book yet, but I HOPE she gets a story of her own. She NEEDS her HEA too!
5 stars!

BLURB

Two strangers in Paris ...

One passionate, earth-shattering kiss.

He was the artist upstairs
with the tantalizing smile and laughing eyes.

He was the devil inviting me to sin,
seducing me to dance in the bright moonlight.

He was desire and need.

When he touched me, my body sang--
my soul came alive.

But I belonged to another man,
and he didn't want to let me go.

REVIEW:

Forbidden, second chance romance that will have you believing in fate and will have you rooting for this all-consuming, forbidden type of love. LOVE ME IN THE DARK will have you hoping and dreaming for unlikely possibilities. It will have you swooning, fearing, and empathizing. Mia Asher takes your heart soring to new heights with passion and desire, only to have it come crashing down with angst and uncertainty. #AlltheFeels
This novel was tearing at every fiber of my being. I was yearning right along with Valentina. I was desiring right along with Sebastian. I was feeling every internal battle right along with Valentina. I was needing and aching right along with them both. Mia Asher has the reader FEELING EVERYTHING while diligently reading every passage.
When I read the synopsis for LMITD, I knew that this storyline would take me personally beyond my comfort zone. Take me to a place where I had always said I wouldn't go with a novel. BUT I also knew that Mia was the ONLY author that I would be willing to read this type of storyline from because I knew that she would be able to win me over heart and soul with her writing ability and her characters. And SHE HAS! I am utterly and profoundly in love with this story and these characters. They are constantly on my mind and had me hoping and aching for their HEA. LOVE ME IN THE DARK is like NO other novel I've read of Mia’s (or other author’s for that matter), but it still has Mia’s exceptional writing style and all-consuming storyline. Mia’s ability to spin a compelling story is unprecedented. She is truly an exceptional author.
This unconventional and emotional love story will have you craving for more with each page read. A passionate, desire filled, and angst driven novel with a touch of forbidden element that is addictive and unforgettable. A true masterpiece that I will cherish forever. LOVE IN THE DAEK is completely unique in ALL aspects and should be devoured by any and all romance/suspense lovers.

REVIEW: KING OF WALL STREET by Louise Bay

Purchase Links

Audiobook Links


BLURB:

THE KING OF WALL STREET IS BROUGHT TO HIS KNEES BY AN AMBITIOUS BOMBSHELL.


I keep my two worlds separate.

At work, I’m King of Wall Street. The heaviest hitters in Manhattan come to me to make money. They do whatever I say because I’m always right. I’m shrewd. Exacting. Some say ruthless.

At home, I’m a single dad trying to keep his fourteen year old daughter a kid for as long as possible. If my daughter does what I say, somewhere there’s a snowball surviving in hell. And nothing I say is ever right.

When Harper Jayne starts as a junior researcher at my firm, the barriers between my worlds begin to dissolve. She’s the most infuriating woman I’ve ever worked with.

I don’t like the way she bends over the photocopier—it makes my mouth water.

I hate the way she’s so eager to do a good job—it makes my dick twitch.

And I can’t stand the way she wears her hair up exposing her long neck. It makes me want to strip her naked, bend her over my desk and trail my tongue all over her body.

If my two worlds are going to collide, Harper Jayne will have to learn that I don't just rule the boardroom. I’m in charge of the bedroom, too. 

♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚♚

REVIEW:
Harper Jayne has been desperate to work for Max King at his consulting firm, KING AND ASSOCIATES in New York. KING AND ASSOCIATES more so Max King, aka “The King of Wall Street”, is the reason she enrolled into business school in the first place. Now, three months after finishing business school at Berkley and moving to New York, she has her coveted job as a junior researcher at KING AND ASSOCIATES. She feels as if it is destiny that is lining up her life, but destiny seemed to have missed its mark. Only 6 weeks into her new position, all her hopes and dreams were fizzling. Her expectations for the clients they were working for met all her expectations, but Max King did not. “The fact was, despite being crazy smart, respected by everyone on Wall Street, and looking as if he should have been on a poster on teenage me’s bedroom wall, he was…Cold. Blunt. Uncompromising.” –Harper. His face and body lived up to Harper’s expectations, but he was a complete tyrant to work for. With the way he was towards her in the office, her expectations were shattered. So after that major career disappointment, Harper was determined to learn as much from her experience at KING AND ASSOCAITES as possible for the next two years, until she could go set up on her own or work for another company.

Max King, owner of KING AND ASSOCAITES, kept a strict divide between his personal life and his profession life…until now. Harper Jayne was testing that resolve. Her eagerness to learn was maddening and had him imagining doing things to her that he shouldn’t…not in his office. She pushed his buttons both mentally and physically. “Harper made me laugh, got me hot, and drove me crazy all within a ten-second window.” –Max. So he was determined to keep things professional between them. To prevent the lines from getting blurred, he kept her at an arm’s length. Until he found out that she not only works for him, but she also lives in his building. Those lines were increasingly getting blurred. But Max also had more than himself to think of, he had a 14 year old daughter, who looked up to him and learned from him. She was the only thing important in his life and the reason he didn’t seek out anyone. But a single touch from Harper has him questioning his motives behind not seeking out a girlfriend. He knows he can have any woman he wants. He doesn’t do the girlfriend thing, but Harper was making him want more. She was the complete package, “Talented. Beautiful. Sharp. Sexy.” and he wanted it all. But there were so many reasons that a relationship couldn’t happen between them. Most importantly, she works for him. They can’t possible make it work…can they?

What happens when one of Harper’s personal issues interferes with Max’s business? Can you really mix personal and professional? Can those lines be crossed without there being a fallout?
Can Harper let Max into her heart? Can Max allow himself time to have the things he wants outside of work and his daughter?

I did things slightly backwards and I read PARK AVENUE PRINCE first (my first Louise Bay novel, which I LOVED!), which is a spinoff of KING OF WALL STREET. So after reading that novel and getting a small dose of Max and Harper, I wanted to actually read their story and I am SO happy I got a chance to! I REALLY enjoyed this story! It was the right set of pace, the story was believable, and the characters were the right amount of complicated for me. It was sexy, sassy and completely irresistible. I would consider this story an enemies to lover’s type. Max and Harper were so aggressive toward each other right from the beginning! It was like reading a constant foreplay between these two! “I loved that mouth, the way it called me names, the way it called my name. She needed to be taught a lesson.” –Max. It was like one massive build up between them and when they finally did come together (pun intended), it was ELECTRIC! *fans self* Louise Bay described them as having a knowingness and a familiarity between each other, and that definitely translated in their interactions. They were truly perfect for each other…they just didn’t start out in the best circumstances…boss and employee. But it made for one massive tension filled story *wink*.  Definitely a recommendation type of novel!

5 stars!

SURPRISE COVER REVEAL & BLURB: RACER by Katy Evans

RACER by Katy Evans is coming August 7th!!

Preorder up on iBooks! 
(Amazon and others to come soon.)

BLURB:
A bad boy with something to prove.
A woman with a mission.
The race of their lives.
The love of a lifetime.

I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.

He's the fastest, fiercest driver around.

Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep...
but his smile sends me to my knees.

The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He's secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss....

This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I'm supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn't get into trouble. But it's an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation...or your curse.

He says he wants me. He says I'm the One. But he also thinks he'll break my heart, one piece at a time until it's gone.
