BOOK BLAST: Shaken Series by Julie Bailes

 

Mature Audience Only 


**Book 1 in the Shaken Series** 

 

If someone asked me to describe myself using only one word, I’d tell them damaged. I’m completely broken, irreparable. On the outside, I appear beautiful and bright, but on the inside, my soul is black and empty. I haven’t always been this fragile, scared, and heartbroken woman. Nope. I had the life my peers envied; happily married parents, captain of the volleyball team, and a dangerously sexy and loving boyfriend. Then, faster than I could blink, my life went to hell in a gasoline-soaked hand basket. 
Cancer struck. The sting of death pierced my heart, and my so-called ‘loving’ boyfriend left me. Wyatt shattered my heart into a million pieces when he left, but little did he know, it wasn’t just me he walked away from. Four years later, Blake changes everything. Unlike Wyatt, Blake treasures my heart. Blake claims I’m beautifully broken, and that he can fix me, but I know differently. 

 

How can you put something together without all its pieces? You can’t. When Wyatt left, he took most of my heart away with him. You see, hearts are like broken glass; you can put it back together again, but it will never be the same. While I’m undeserving of Blake’s love, he deserves every bit of mine. My biggest fear is that I’ll crush his heart, just as Wyatt did mine.

 

  

 

 

**READ after Shattered and Shaken (book 1), and prior to Shattered & Mended (book 2)** Mature audience only 

Walking away from her was the hardest decision I ever made. Leaving her without an explanation broke us both. Our hearts have been left shattered. I could make excuses. I could lay the blame on others, but still I made the decision. I had to. It was the only way to protect the both of them. After all of Allie’s loss, my thought was only on her and her happiness. On her love and need for her big brother. I was replaceable, Kyle wasn’t. I wouldn’t allow him to crush her heart with his death. I knew I had follow him. I would throw myself on top of bombs, in front of bullets, whatever it took to get him home to her, alive. There are two sides to every story, and you’ve only heard one. Don’t be so quick to judge; I hate myself for what I’ve done. But all that I did, it was all for Allie. 


 

 

**READ Shattered & Shaken and All for Allie prior to Shattered & Mended, as this is the last in the series** Mature Audience My mind was made up and my decision had been made, but fate felt the need to rear her ugly head and demand control. Fate is guaranteed, not to be reckoned with, and she won’t be defeated. You see, she’s the author to our stories that have already been written; there’s no editing them. Try as you might, but all you’ll do is piss her off. 

When you fuck with fate’s masterpiece, tragedy strikes, death occurs, and hearts get shattered. I’ve never been one to follow the rules. So instead, I stood with arms wide open and I challenged her. I knew the possibilities of her kicking my ass were high, but I refused to back down. I invited all the heat she packed, and quickly learned my lesson… 

You don’t fuck with her. 

 

 

Born and raised in Nashville, TN, wife of one, mother of three, and chocolate fanatic! Author of Shattered and Shaken, due to release mid September. I attend nursing school full time, but in my spare time I love spending time with my family watching movies, eating junk food, and every once in a while a girls night out on the town. I enjoy reading, even though I haven’t read much since I’ve began my journey as author. I live by the motto “Live life as if you’re dying, Laugh until your stomach hurts, Love until your heart stops beating, and never judge.” Simple rules to follow. We never know what someone else is going through or what they have been through. Life is too short to be angry, unforgiving, or depressed. Each day is a gift from God that can be taken at any given moment- embrace the gift of life….

What that means is for him to decide and for her to submit to. Frightened yet fascinated by what he promises, Abby becomes a willing captive to hiscaress, undone by his peerless touch, a quivering submission to an aching need for complete carnal surrender. . .

Abigail is a sweet self sacrificing individual.  She’s devoted her life to protecting her brother, trying to keep him out of trouble and bailing him out when he doesn’t listen.  Because of his most recent bout with trouble at work, Abigail is faced with a proposition to be personal assistant to Kameron Maldonado, the CEO and owner of MalTech Corporation.  To avoid having charges against her brother she accepts the job and hopes that she can remain detached from the desire she instantly feels for Kameron.

Kameron saw Abigail and knew he had to come up with a way to have her near.  Her brother’s trouble gave him the perfect opportunity to feed his desires.  Neither of them had an idea how this arrangement would affect them but they will never be the same.

I loved the chemistry between Kam and Abby.  Their desire for each was instant and their connection undeniable.  I could tell Kam tried hard to maintain this rough exterior facade but could see he was immediately open to Abby.  Their intimate moments were very HOT and STEAMY from the start.  The only BDSM aspect of this story is that Kam wants to maintain constant control as Dominant and wants  Abby to be his sub.  The suspenseful plot in this story was captivating.  I couldn’t put my eReader down as I was so involved in the story.  There were plot twists to keep you going it was difficult to guess the “who done it” factor; which was a PLUS for me.  I can usually tell you who the guilty party is from the beginning.

Tawny Taylor brings us a Sexy romance with a great storyline.  I give this 4 stars on the Naughty scale.3ed0e-4stars

Life is all about the jigsaw, right? Finding the different puzzle pieces to complete your very own picture. A career you love, a house to make a home, a lover to complete you, and keep you warm at night.
Danielle Renton has a life, and she loves it. A recent law school graduate, she’d been floored when her boyfriend, Nate Lewis, enlisted during their sophomore year of college.

SYNOPSIS:

That one single moment in life when you find that special someone, everything stops. Nothing else matters in life but them. You. Us together. That one single look. That one single touch. Night after night of pleasure, unexplainable raw, dirty and mind-blowing pleasure. A pleasure when you forget everything in this world around you exists but the both of you. Every single moment spent together is cherished as if it was your last time together. Nothing in this world mattered more than us. That’s what I thought. In one single moment, it all comes crashing down around me. I thought I had it all: love, trust, honesty. What a lie that was. Secrets, deceit, pain, a whole lot of that. Everything was a lie. Our whole time together, nothing was real. My heart was torn from my chest, piece by piece, until nothing was left. The day my life ended, when the world came crashing around my feet, was the day I said goodbye to Dante Davenport. He ruined everything. He destroyed me completely and obliterated my heart in the process. Life will never be the same again.

EXCERPT:

I couldn’t wipe the grin off my face as I slid into my truck. I had woken with a raging hard on with Amelia’s ass pressed into my dick. I slowly slipped from my side of the bed and watched on as she rolled over onto her back, arm above her head facing my side, her left leg bent up and completely and utterly naked. My eyes devoured her from the tip of her head all the way down her lush body. If I could get any harder I did when she dragged her own hand down her body and rested on her lower stomach. I couldn’t hold back my desire of her.

I had woken her with my mouth between her legs, the sweet taste of her nectar still lingered on my lips. As I turned out of our street and headed towards headquarters, I ran my tongue along my lip savouring the taste. Remembering her sweet pleads for me to fuck her, the moans that turned me inside out and the way she gripped my cock before I came inside of her. My back stung from her nails as she scratched down my back as she screamed my name.

Sex with Amelia was nothing I had even imagined, but something was different, her taste was sweeter than normal, more sensitive than usual and she wanted me constantly, well she did originally, but it was like every second she was rubbing herself against me. The last month was sex, sex and more sex. I wasn’t complaining about it, I loved every second of being inside or her. Her wet pussy. Her mouth, shit I couldn’t keep thinking of her this way. I only just left and I was hard for her again. Shifting into second gear as I rounded the corner, at 6a.m., there was traffic everywhere. If I left it a little longer I could have escaped this madness, but if that happened, I’d end up being late for work, as I’d be buried deep within Amelia’s core.

Synopsis

When twenty-three-year old Ariel Fountain inherits her reclusive Great Aunt Blythe’s estate in nowhere, Missouri, she leaves California — and her lying, cheating ex-boyfriend — to start over.

A giant dead oak tree stands in the front yard of the inherited property, and Ariel wants it removed, but handsome landscaper, Grady Tucker, is reluctant to cut it down, saying it would be bad luck.

Decades ago, a young man hung himself from the tree, and though his death was deemed a suicide, many believed otherwise. After the apparent suicide, it was discovered that the man had been dating three women at the same time — one of whom was Ariel’s Great Aunt.

After the hanging, the other two women disappeared, never to be seen, or heard from again. Legend has it they are supposedly buried beneath the dead tree, and Blythe Fountain was said to have murdered all three of them.

BLOG TOUR: A Girl Walks Into A Wedding by Helena S. Paige

 

Title: A GIRL WALKS
INTO A WEDDING: Your Fantasy, Your Rules
Genre: Erotica
By Helena S. Paige
Release Date:  5/27/2014
SYNOPSIS:
 
The wedding has just begun and every decision you make can
leave you satisfied… or craving more in this funny and sexy novel in which
you make the rules…
YOU are invited to a
wedding. As you try on what must be the ugliest bridesmaid dress (and that is
saying a lot) you realize so much can go wrong with this event. Your best
friend needs to know NOW if you are bringing a date. So what is a girl to do?
Do you bring the sexy guy you have only gone on one date with, or do you brave
it and go alone?

 

In this novel, you make the decisions. Will your dream date
turn out to be a dud? Will the best man find a way under your ugly dress? Will
the bachelorette party end with a bang or a fizzle? Will the wedding even
happen at all? Will your decision leave you pleasantly satisfied or
disappointed and yearning for more? All of these experiences are awaiting you
at the beautiful country estate. Now all you must do is choose…
****************************
It’s your fantasy. Your rules.
The choice is all yours. . . .
Your best friend is getting married and she’s asked you to be a
bridesmaid. You have so many decisions to make. . . .
·
Do you ask the gorgeous but mysterious man you just met to come as
your date?
·
Or do you go solo?
·
Once the wedding weekend gets under way, will you ditch your date?
Get down and dirty with the hot DJ? Dodge the disreputable best man?
·
Or perhaps the rugged pilot you meet in the bar will open up
unexpected erotic opportunities—and who knew the maid of (dis)honor had such a
sultry streak?
You also have to navigate through the bachelorette party, the
bride’s wedding jitters, the dress from hell, and more. Perhaps the most
tempting option is to flee the entire affair with a tall, dark stranger . . .
or maybe an old friend who could surprise you with a sizzling encounter.
You make the decisions—a wild ride is guaranteed.
Here’s
a brief excerpt—it’s hard to give you more, because of the interactive nature
of the text. However, there is an app available for 5 excerpts from the book
that simulate the choose your own experience. I’d love it people could post
about it, too: 
EXCERPT:
Dear
Reader,
This
isn’t a regular novel with a set beginning, middle and end. This is your story,
and you’re in charge. Of your life, your sexuality, your fantasies.
So
here’s how it works: at the end of every scene, you’ll be given a choice, with
instructions to turn to the page that corresponds with your selection. It’s
simple: YOU pick what you want to do, where you want to go, who you want to be
with. There are no right or wrong decisions. Just keep turning or clicking
through to the pages, and you’re guaranteed a wild ride that you shape and
control.
Wondering
“what if”? Want to try something different? Unlike in life, here you can press
the “reset” button. Just click or flip back the pages to the previous fork in
the road, pick something different, and head out on a new adventure.
Because
remember: it’s your fantasy, your rules.
Enjoy!

********************************
All
women know that bridesmaids’ dresses are a secret plot of the devil. No matter
how much your best friend, sister or cousin promises she will not dress you up
as The Bride of Frankenstein on Disco Night, odds are you’ll be walking down
the aisle swathed in the kind of fabric used to upholster sofas, in the one
color designed to make you look jaundiced.
But you’re not feeling any pre-bridesmaid’s dress fitting panic
today. Jane is your oldest friend in the world, and you know she’d never expect
you to wear a monstrosity. You’ve seen pictures of what she has in mind for you
– a tasteful slip-dress in a harmless dark-blue satin.
‘Champagne?’ a shop assistant asks, holding out a tray of glasses, the bubbles
racing to pop out of the top of each glass.
‘Yes please,’ says Cee Cee, Jane’s older sister and maid of honor, appearing
beside you and taking a glass. Cee Cee adores weddings – in fact, as a wedding
planner, she makes a living out of them. You’re a little worried she might be
infecting Jane with too much bridezilla hysteria and over-the-topness – most of
the events she presides over make the last royal wedding look like an elopement
followed by a piss-up in the local pub – but you have to admit, she’s a great
organizer.
‘Have you seen Jane’s dress?’ you ask, sinking into one of the luxurious
armchairs set in front of a wall of mirrors and a little podium, designed for
optimum dress viewing.
‘Not yet! But I can’t wait,’ Cee Cee says, settling down in the
chair next to yours, eyes shining. ‘And you will just die when Jane
tells you about my idea for the bridesmaids’ dresses!’
That sounds rather alarming. You’re about to ask for details, but
then Jane steps out of the dressing room, closely followed by a mountain of
fabric, the bridal shop proprietor fussing over the train of the dress.
‘Oh my God, Jane!’ you say.

TOUR-EXCERPT

He wanted to say something but suddenly became hesitant. Everything had gone so fast, he didn’t want to spook her. He was unafraid to show her how much he loved being with her, especially since she’d promised to visit him in Coronado and they’d see where things went from there. It would have been like the cart before the horse, but he wanted to ask her to marry him at that impulsive moment, but he held himself back. Being the wife of a SEAL was a special assignment and there was no training for that, except the school of hard knocks. There was a community of wives that looked out for each other. And not all the stories from overseas made it home to them. The smart wives knew this. He knew it was a lot to ask of someone. He didn’t want to fall for a lady who didn’t really understand what she’d be getting herself into. But that was a completely crazy thought, because he’d already fallen for her. He decided he’d just put it out of his mind, and not discuss anything future-related, to keep the pressure off them both. Nothing wrong with having a little bit of—well, a lot of—fun in the next few days before his deployment. He held her under the starlight. Feeling eyes on him, he saw Julie’s parents eyeing him from their kitchen window, smiling. He couldn’t keep up the eye contact because odds weren’t in his favor. He wasn’t prince charming, or Sir Galahad riding in on his white horse. He was just a guy other guys sent in to blow stuff up, grab people and hopefully get out before getting shot or caught. And his intentions, although he liked to think of them as honorable, were merely to do everything in his power to be as irresistible as possible to her so that when he left, he’d be the one hard to miss. And then maybe she’d wait for him. Maybe she’d wait until he got fully well. It was a lot of ifs. The music stopped while he was kissing her ear through her hair, while he was holding her tighter as she melted into him. He liked that they were dancing because their thighs made soft caresses and the dress, that yummy dress, made all that noise. He just knew every time he heard the sound of layers of chiffon, he’d get hard. It was going to be something he’d have for the rest of his life.

Mother of Two Boys…

My husband and I are blessed with two amazing young men. They are 9 and 11 right now, and both are on very different parts of the autism spectrum. I’ve learned so much by being their mom and feel pretty lucky to have become a part of a community of loving, understanding people.

If you’d like to meet my oldest son, just watch Big Bang Theory and shake hands with Sheldon. Those two are so similar, straight down to the fake laugh when they recognize something is funny.

My youngest cannot be explained. He’s more of an experience, and a joyful one at that.

Romance Novelist…

I’ve always loved to write. I’ve written for newspapers and magazines, also a host of personal projects. Then in December of 2012 I was reading on my first Kindle, gobbling up romances left and right. That’s when I fell in love with Ethan Blackstone, by the way.

Anyway, I was inspired to sit down and write. Less than one year later I’ve published three books, written another and its sequel novella, and started on two more. As of November of 2013, I’m more than 60k words into those two total. Since I’m sure I won’t update this bio for a long time, you’ll have to rely on my Facebook updates to know what’s going on with Kemmie Michaels romances. There are stalker links on my home page.

SYNOPSIS:

What happens when the president’s daughter and her sexy
Secret Service agent find themselves snowbound? A little cabin fever, some serious
forbidden attraction, and Various States of Undress…

When Carolina Fulton, daughter of the President of the
United States, dumps her cheating fiancé, she knows she needs a break from life
in Washington. Spending some quality alone time in her family’s Wyoming cabin
seems like a perfect escape-except for the hot Secret Service agent who shadows
her every move. Miles away from civilization, Carolina quickly realizes that
ignoring the smoky eyes, carved chin, and mile-wide pair of shoulders is going to
require more than a little self-control.

Elite agent Jake Baxter knows better than to develop
feelings for his clients. After all, he’s not being paid to fantasize about
running his fingers through Carolina’s dark hair, kissing her senseless, or
waking up next to her petite, curvy body. But as a blizzard rages outside their
all-too-cozy cabin, Jake knows he has to put the freeze on this attraction,
lest his job-or his heart-is suddenly laid on the line. 








EXCERPT:


“What do we do now?” she asked, knowing it was an invitation.
And not caring. The door was locked. The alarm was on. No eyes were prying and
no cameras were flashing. Nobody was judging her, and she felt safe. Safe from
everything, except herself—but she could handle herself. Being competent was
her signature character trait.

“We shouldn’t,” he said.

She leaned forward and slid her fingers down his arms until she
clasped his warm hands. “I’m so aware of that fact, it’s painful.” She tipped
her head back. “But right now, I don’t care.” Rising up, she loosened her
fingers, wrapped her arms around his strong neck and pulled him toward her.
“Okay?”

His hands moved to splay around her ribcage. “No. It’s not
okay.” Then he lifted her up until her breasts were nestled against his chest.
And his mouth descended on hers, sending tendrils of fire racing through her
middle. As her eyes slid shut, she had the strangest feeling that she was
sinking. And she didn’t want it to stop.
