About Junk Mail

It all started with a sexy selfie.

Texted to the wrong number.

Oops. 

Not my finest moment—but I have nothing to be ashamed of.

She thought I was no better, and I quote, than the knuckle-dragging douche-bags she was never dating again.

It was a stupid dare from a girl I’d met online, but since she’d given me a fake number, I didn’t feel bad that my interests were suddenly focused elsewhere—on the fiery and sharp-tongued, Peyton that I found myself sparring with over text for the rest of the evening.

The following day, my case of mistaken identity came back to bite me in the banana.

When I strolled into the office, I was introduced to Peyton as the new client I needed to win over. The Peyton , in case you’re not tracking.

And let’s just say she had my full attention.

Brains? Check.

Beauty? Oh yeah.

And the best part? She hated me on sight.

Dear God, do I love a challenge.

Let the games begin.

REVIEW

So, if you are familiar with Kate Stewart’s book you know she doesn’t do anything ordinary. Her stories are unique, risky, emotional, and heartbreaking. The hero in this story is a Hollywood star but not as typical as you might think. This story is not about the glitz and the glam of a superstar. Lucas has serious demons. On the outside, he seemingly has it all – a beautiful wife and a successful career. But he is screaming inside, buried in pain over the death of his best friend. Lucas took on the role of a lifetime, immersed totally in his role, living as someone else and completely loses himself in the process. Has he gone overboard this time and at what cost? The concept of “method acting” I had never heard of before and the ending left me reeling. Bravo!!!
Lucas and Mila’s story proves that love/marriage is not always roses and sunshine. Sometimes it’s messy, painful and sad. You must put in the time, effort, and patience (which Mila has in an abundance ❤️) to make it work. What I appreciate about Kate is that she doesn’t sugar coat anything — even the ugliest parts. That’s why her characters always come through completely real, honest, and sincere.
As always, the writing is extraordinary – I was an emotional mess after I finished. But don’t worry, the story was told in the past (fun, flirty, sexy) and present, so you do get some reprieve from all the angsts and heartache.
Method is fascinating – all the feels,. It’s raw, intense, romantic and all too consuming. Once again, the author touches my heart and leaves a mark. Read it!

Happy New RELEASE – Bad Boy Blues by Saffron A. Kent (4/11/2019)

 

Title: Bad Boy Blues
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance

Release Date: April 11, 2019

 

Blurb
Cleopatra Paige hates one thing in this world — just one — and his
name is Zachariah Prince.
In grade school, he pulled at her pigtails. In middle school, he spread
false rumors about her. And in high school, he ruined her prom.
She hates that his smirks are unfairly sexy. And she definitely loathes
that his dark eyes seem to follow her everywhere. Sometimes, even in her
dreams.
It doesn’t matter that he’s rich and popular or that he lives in a
freaking mansion full of butlers and maids. He’s rude and arrogant, and she
wants to stay as far away from him as possible.
But unfortunately for Cleo, she lives in the same freaking mansion as
Zach.
Only he’s the prince and she’s the lowly maid who serves him.

 

A fairy-tale love story. Rich boy and a girl from the wrong side of the track. Cleo and Zach known each other since grade school. Zach was a bully, together with his little gangs they tormented Cleo for years. Sometime during their high school year, Zach disappeared. Rumors has it he went off to Princeton … but did he? Cleo never thought she would ever see him again. She now lives and work at the estate own by Zach family. She needs to save money to buy back her childhood home. Cleo can’t afford any distractions, least of all from the boy she despises. Except three years has passed and Zach is no longer a boy – he is all grown up, brooding, tattooed, sexy alpha. Friend or foe, Cleo didn’t stand a chance.
There is quite a bit going with this book – bullying, abuse, dyslexia, self-loathing, social status. At one point I wasn’t sure where the story was going but I guess the events are all tie together. I like the enemy-to-lover romance (one of my favorite) – a bit unsure with the modern day live-in maid where Zach thinks he owns Cleo (it’s the alpha effect I presume :)) but romantic and beautiful. I adore Zach and the way he stands up for what he believes is right. Sorry, couldn’t get into the blue hair thing … but love Cleo – strong, smart, caring, hard worker, a spitfire who has a huge heart. I like the forbidden romance bit as well. I love that this story teaches us about mistakes, compassion, forgiveness and redemption. A bit emotional at time, agnsty, some drama. Over all, well-written entertaining read.

Love this book: Sweet Fatality by Desireé Adele (3/29/2019)



We’re celebrating the release of SWEET FATALITY by Desiree Adele! Check out the excerpt and One-Click today!

 

NA Contemporary Romance/Sports Romance

Designed by: Melissa Panio-Petersen

Blurb:

Everyone loves a hot, broody jock, right? The kind who’s stare sets your body on fire and all common sense flies out the window?

Well, not this girl.

Sure, Keith Montgomery has the looks, but in his case, beauty is only skin deep. He’s egotistical, obnoxious and the most shallow person I’ve ever met.

And I’m his new roommate.

Turns out we were both desperate.

But that’s where our commonalities end. He’s indecisive where I’m sensible, chaotic where I’m organized. So why do I ache for those minutes alone with him?

I’m not the type of girl who likes to get burned, but suddenly the idea of playing with Fire is getting harder to resist.

Excerpt:

Sunday morning rolls in with bright sunlight beaming through the open blinds of the far bedroom window. My new bedroom. It’s fairly sparse, with a beat up dresser, a nightstand and desk tucked into the corner by the closet. Not a single one of them match and likely came from a consignment shop, but rather than curl at distaste, I beam brightly at the opportunity to refinish these and make them look brand-spanking new and make a mental note to stop by a hardware store sometime this week to pick up some supplies. Of course, I’m on a limited budget, so I’ll need to do some serious penny pinching to get the project done.

Before I pull back the solid black comforter, I take a moment to just sit and revel in the ensuing silence of the small place. It was never this quiet at the sorority house. Girls were up at the crack of dawn and the house would bustle with the sounds of hairdryers and heels clicking against the hardwood floors. I never needed to set an alarm when I was there. But, here, it’s so peaceful you could hear a pin drop, needless to say, living in a house full of people is incredibly overrated.

Peeling back the covers, I take a moment to stretch before rising from the bed and walking over to the small full length mirror by the dresser. My hair is a tangled mess that would be a suitable home for a family of flamboyant rats and I’m still wearing the same clothes I wore yesterday since my bags are still tucked away in the trunk of the car. I slip the spare hair tie off my wrist and pull my hair back into a messy bun, trying to ignore the fire break of brown root peeking through the pink.

Task number two, purchase hair dye.

Smoothing down my crinkled blouse, I do a quick sniff check just to be in the safe side and head to the door and swing it open, but wind up tripping over at pile of bags sitting directly in front of my door.

“You know, someone should really put you in a bubble.” A familiar husky voice declares.

I crane my head upwards and come nose to nose with Keith’s crotch hidden behind a burgundy colored towel that is tied in a knot by the right side of his hip. Or nose to crotch, I guess is more accurate.

My eyes trail up and linger at the sharply cut V of his torso. The arrow to happy town as Bianca likes to call it. I, however, can’t even begin to find a nickname for it since I’ve never seen one in the flesh. Not nearly as defined, anyway.

Oh, and the term “washboard abs”? Yeah, that’s a thing, because I’m staring at them, right now. Each fucking abdominal muscle is chiseled like some brilliant artist carved them out of bronzed marble and I have to bite my eager tongue before it decides to lick and trace every hard line that leads up to his broad chest and cut shoulders.

When my eyes finally reach Keith’s There’s a wicked gleam shimmering in those gem colored irises. He knows damn well how fine he is.

“Since I got a peak of yours, last night, I’ll be more than happy to show you my assets. In the interest of fairness and all.” He says smugly.

His hand closes around the knot of the towel and I scramble to my feet. “Don’t you dare untie that towel!”

I throw my hand over my eyes because if I get another look at his bare torso, the overwhelming urge to tear away the terry cloth with my teeth will no doubt shred every ounce of resistance I have against him.

I jut my hand out in an attempt to feel around for the walls of the hallway, concentrating on keeping my fingers tightly sealed over my hungry eyes and end up slapping my palm over a slab of hard, heated flesh.

“Oh my God, will you just get out of here!” I shout as I yank my hand back and start flapping it wildly as though burned. Which isn’t entirely far from what had just happened.

The deep rumble of his chuckle echoes through the hall and damn the human body for only having two arms instead of four so I could protect my ears from the hypnotic sound.

Strong hands grasp my shoulders, gently turning me to the left and gives me a slight nudge into the direction of the staircase.

I remove my hand from my face when I feel safe enough and rush down the stairs as Keith calls down after me.“Just so ya know, the offer is always open.”

 

 

Whoa! What an absolute heartfelt, adorable, sexy love story. This one is about Keith and Lexi who we met in Sweet Insanity. Keith just gotten kick off the hockey team for the rest of the season after being caught with drugs. Keith’s parents had high expectations for him to take over the family business one day, but at this point they are furious and decided to cut off all financial support. For the first time, Keith needs a find a real job but there isn’t much. He found himself working as a barista blending drinks at a local gym 😊 LOL how far the prince has fallen. Lexi is also at a cross road. She too is looking for work and a new place to live. Lexi’s best friend Dahlia happened to date Zack, Keith’s current roommate … and voila! Welcome new roomies Keith and Lexi!
Keith and Lexi could not be more opposite. Keith is heart-stopping gorgeous, delicious, arrogant man-whore with a filthy mouth. He has a type and it isn’t involved his new roomie Lexi or so he thinks … Lexi is shy, wide-eye, bright smile, beautiful, down to earth, someone you would want to be your bestie kind of girl. Lexi also has her standards in man and the cocky mouthwatering sexy ex-hockey player isn’t one of them… or is it??? I really enjoy the fun and flirting relationship between Lexi and Keith. Keith loves to tease and make sexual innuendo comment which makes Lexi turned red tomato … she really is adorable. I love the hilarious banters between them. I like that they developed a sweet friendship first then of course turned into a hot and heavy romance later (fanning 😊). There is not too much drama going on (except one) which is quite refreshing. Keith does have some personal issue he needs to work on and Lexi was perfect for him … patience and kind. Sweet Fatality was an awesome read – fun, passionate, heartwarming, romantic sport/friend-to-lover romance. Second book of the Sweet Series – second novel period, but very well-written. Can’t wait for more to come from this author.

Blurb:

Old hurt runs deep…

After she left, I was given a second chance at life thanks to my savior and adoptive father. A chance I refused to waste. Determined to be invincible, I became a true fighter in every sense of the word. Nothing and no one would get in my way.

Not even the guy who sat behind me in class.

Zack Graves had the entire world in his hands. A promising hockey career and the confidence and gorgeous looks that had every girl throwing themselves at his feet.

Except me. I was only too happy to wipe the smirk off his face while tossing him on his smug behind.

And he kept coming back for more.

I kept my scars hidden, until Zack managed to trace the lines straight to a place I fought to keep guarded.

Zack was fighting his own immortality, his own scars becoming visible the closer we got. He challenged my guard at every turn forcing me to fight harder, only to realize he would be my undoing.

But some wounds refuse to heal.

That inked bad boy who’s been flirting hard with me since he rode into town? Turns out he’s my new housemate, which is one hell of a problem since our chemistry is so hot it should be illegal.

 

I have a fantastic family, great best friends, a job I love…and now I’m up for a promotion to police sergeant. I need total focus—not a flirty, dirty, irresistible, tattooed hottie riding into my town on his motorcycle. Can I arrest him for being too good-looking? When he kisses me senseless in the back of a waffle truck, it’s criminal, the things he makes me think about hot syrup and melted butter. One order of hot, fluffy hookup to go, please.
But the next time I see him, it’s not for our date with benefits. He’s the guy who just rented the room above my garage.
I need the rent to pay my bills, not a man like Derek, who I soon discover to be strong, caring, generous, good with kids, and kind to puppies… If I’m not careful, he’ll be moving into my heart as well as my house.
 
***
 
A no-strings-attached fling with the fiery redhead who revs my engine? Why, yes, that does sound like a delicious perk of my new job in this new town, thank you very much. I’m coming off a bad relationship, and I have zero interest in anything serious. I’ve got all the serious I need helping my sister take care of her three little kids while her husband is deployed.
Except, surprise! Perri isn’t just my future fling. Turns out she’s my sexy, sassy landlord.
A lease definitely counts as “strings attached,” and as much as I’d like to get tangled in her sheets, I can’t let myself get tangled up in a relationship.
But as soon as we put the cuffs on our escapades, I learn over late-night conversations in the kitchen, that my landlord is so much more than the sexiest woman I’ve ever met– she has a quick mind and the biggest heart.

Once I’m in, I’m all in. And to convince her that we should see where this goes, I plan on turning up the heat—and not just in the kitchen.

 

REVIEW: 

The Feelgood Factor left me feeling really good indeed 😊Perri is a badass cop.  She is up for a promotion, so she is working extra hard to prove the boss she deserves the spot.  Derek is a firefighter who just moved in town to help his sister taking care of the kids while her husband is deployed oversea.  Neither Derek nor Perri is looking for a relationship, least of all the L word.  Perri needs to rent out her upstairs room and Derek is ready to get off his sister’s couch.  BAM! Welcome new roomies thanks to Perri’s brother meddling monkey business.  Let’s the angst and the sexual tension begin… Love both characters.  Perri is quirky, sexy, fun.  She is badass on the street but in the bedroom … not so much.  Derek is a total flirt.  He knew what he wanted and went after Perri the first time he laid eyes on her.  Perri couldn’t stand a chance against the alpha, tattooed, dirty mouth, sexy on wheel newbie in town.  Tons of chemistry and sexiness between these two.  Awesome banters.  Both Perri and Derek have some relationship issues they needed to get through.  It was nice to see them slowly melt their hearts and give love a second chance.  Another light-hearted, sweet, sexy romcom! Fantastic read!

WHAT THE WIND KNOWS by AMY HARMON

 

Blurb:

In an unforgettable love story, a woman’s impossible journey through the ages could change everything . . .

Anne Gallagher grew up enchanted by her grandfather’s stories of Ireland. Heartbroken at his death, she travels to his childhood home to spread his ashes. There, overcome with memories of the man she adored and consumed by a history she never knew, she is pulled into another time.

The Ireland of 1921, teetering on the edge of war, is a dangerous place in which to awaken. But there Anne finds herself, hurt, disoriented, and under the care of Dr. Thomas Smith, guardian to a young boy who is oddly familiar. Mistaken for the boy’s long-missing mother, Anne adopts her identity, convinced the woman’s disappearance is connected to her own.

As tensions rise, Thomas joins the struggle for Ireland’s independence and Anne is drawn into the conflict beside him. Caught between history and her heart, she must decide whether she’s willing to let go of the life she knew for a love she never thought she’d find. But in the end, is the choice actually hers to make?

I remove my hand from my face when I feel safe enough and rush down the stairs as Keith calls down after me.

“Just so ya know, the offer is always open.”

Old hurt runs deep…

After she left, I was given a second chance at life thanks to my savior and adoptive father. A chance I refused to waste. Determined to be invincible, I became a true fighter in every sense of the word. Nothing and no one would get in my way.

Not even the guy who sat behind me in class.

Zack Graves had the entire world in his hands. A promising hockey career and the confidence and gorgeous looks that had every girl throwing themselves at his feet.

Except me. I was only too happy to wipe the smirk off his face while tossing him on his smug behind.

And he kept coming back for more.

I kept my scars hidden, until Zack managed to trace the lines straight to a place I fought to keep guarded.

Zack was fighting his own immortality, his own scars becoming visible the closer we got. He challenged my guard at every turn forcing me to fight harder, only to realize he would be my undoing.

But some wounds refuse to heal.

REVIEW BLITZ

WAE AUTHOR PAGE BANNER

A Standalone Contemporary Romance Novel

NY Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Penelope Ward

Oh wow! This was one heartwarming love story. The hero Noah a bit older than Heather but surprisingly it did not bother me at all. I think the author did an awesome job with Heather making her character pure and innocent in Noah’s eye but yet very mature for her age. Heather was a caregiver for her mother as well taking care of their rental boathouse. She has huge responsibilities on her shoulder and thus she gave up so much of her own goals and ambitions. Noah is renting the boathouse for the summer. He is an enigma, brooding, handsome, unapproachable. He is here for summer hoping for some quiet, relaxing time but no such luck. Heather will see that he gets some company whether he likes it or not LOL this woman is definitely persistent!!! I like that Heather is super honest. She does not hide her feelings or play games. Noah thinks Heather is jail bait but the more time they spend together the more he has romantic feelings for her. Noah does not act on it though and it’s not only because of her age…he has a huge secret he is hiding from Heather. BTW, that was some twist!!! I did not see it coming. What happen when Heather find out the real reason Noah came to Lake Winnipesaukee? Is it coincident, fate, or is it all had been carefully planned out?
I like the slow burn relationship between Noah and Heather. A couple times, I thought Heather was offering herself up too much and with each rejection my heart breaks a little for her. But in the end, I understand Noah’s predicament. He is a good guy – caring and respectful. Super swoony the way he looks out for Heather – some out jealously but so cute though. For the most part, I really like the sweet, easy, flirty friendship. The sexy part comes after and of course Penelope doesn’t disappoint – very intense and passionate. Over all, this was another great read. Slow burn, heartfelt, forbidden romance. I love the epilogue and the bonus epilogue as well. Unique story, well-developed characters. Beautifully written!!!

Synopsis:

What do you do when a sexy, older man moves into your family’s summer rental?

Well, apparently, you make a fool of yourself—over and over. Things didn’t exactly get off on the right foot with Noah Cavallari. Our first encounter was embarrassing, to say the least.

But despite that, I found myself waking up every day with a newfound energy. Nothing exciting ever happened on the lake—not until Noah moved into the small boathouse on our property. He’d booked it for the entire summer…and I was still trying to figure out why.

When my mother became ill, I inherited the responsibility of making sure our guests were well taken care of. I should have been in college. Instead, I was living my best life…as a maid.

Dark, handsome, and mysterious, everything about Noah screamed forbidden.

I knew he was just passing through town for the summer.

I knew he was probably too old for me.

Yet, I was drawn to him.

Not to mention, he tried to save my life when he mistakenly thought I was drowning.

I wanted him and made no secret of it.

His own attempts to warn me away soon gave way to late-night moonlight chats by the lake. We were slowly easing into a friendship that was gearing up to explode into something I might not recover from.

Because he’s leaving at the end of the summer.

And I have no idea what I’ll do when August ends.

Happy Release: Misadventures of a Curvy Girl by Sierra Simone is available now! (2/22/2019)

Misadventures of a Curvy Girl
by Sierra Simone
Release Date: 19th February 2019 

 

BIG surprise and a good one.  Can’t go wrong with Sierra Simon.  She writes super sexy stories but this one is no different but emotionally packed as well.  I am glad she gave Ireland and Caleb an amazing love story.  A bit touchy subject and regardless of who you are, everyone deserves respect, love and happiness.  This one truly make me smile – romantic, hot, swoon, short and sweet!

 

Synopsis 

For the first time in her life, Ireland Mills is happy with her body. No more fad diets, no more hiding from every camera in the room, no more low self-esteem. She’d rather be alone than with someone who’ll only love her if she’s skinny. 

Caleb Carpenter and Ben Weber are everything Ireland and the Kansas Chamber of Commerce dreamed of when conceptualizing the “Real Kansas” promotional campaign. They’re handsome, young, educated, and totally dedicated to their small prairie town. 

When Ireland’s Prius gets stuck on a Kansas dirt road and a massive storm rips through town, she’s left stranded with nowhere to turn but to Caleb and Ben. These two hunky country boys are impossible to ignore, but could they ever be interested in her as well? 

Caleb and Ben are more than interested…and they’re willing to share. After their first night together, they know this has to be more than a one-time thing. They need to make her theirs forever. But can they convince Ireland they love her, curves and all? 

****Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

 

Meet the Author
 
Sierra is a voracious reader of all things including the smuttiest smut, young adult, piles of non-fiction for research, and everything Bill Bryson (especially on audio).
She loves writing the dirtiest things that she can think of, King Arthur, sparkling water, Tarot, coffee, leggings, and learning new words daily.
Her previous jobs have included firing ceramics, teaching living history lessons in a one-room schoolhouse in full, 1908-approved school marm attire, and working as a librarian for several years—not in that order
She lives in the Kansas City area with her hot cop husband, two children, and two giant dogs. (And two cats, but they’re so naughty we don’t talk about them.)
The social media she cares about the most are Spotify and (her very very NSFW) Tumblr. Following her in those places is a true love language, indeed.

BOYFRIEND FOR HIRE by Kendall Ryan – Happy RELEASE DAY REVIEW!!! (2/19/2019)

 

 

I’m the guy you call when you need to impress your overbearing family, your boss, or your ex. Yeah, I’m a male escort, but not just any escort, I’m the escort. The one with a mile-long waiting list and a pristine reputation that’s very well-deserved.

I’m the guy who’ll make you feel beautiful, desired, and worshipped . . . all for a steep price. I’m hired to make you shine, and I always deliver.

I’ll be whatever you want me to be for one night—except my true self. This is just a job, a role I play to earn a paycheck.

But I’m not the guy who falls for a client. Not once in six years.

And then I meet Elle. Her friend has hired me to escort her to a wedding, but Elle doesn’t know we’re just pretending.

There’s a fire between us I never expected. A connection I haven’t felt in so long. One kiss, and I’m losing all control.

But what will happen when she finds out who I really am?
