All or Nothing Series by Nyora Rene and Giveaway!

Have you read the lastest by Nyora Rene? If not, here’s a sneak peek of her All or Nothing Series. Oh and she has a giveaway!

 

About Love Rekindled:

NBA superstar Malcolm James has everything—fame, money, and two beautiful kids—but no woman to call his own. When his ex, Charmaine Mouton, arrives in Houston to sing the national anthem at the All-Star Game, he can’t help but remember all the good times they shared, and he’s determined not to let her get away again.

Five years ago, Charmaine Mouton made the difficult choice to pursue a singing career and lost the love of her life in the process. Now a successful recording artist, when she sees Malcolm again, she decides to reach for the life she left behind.

But relationships take work, and Malcolm and Charmaine will have to put in the work if they want their love to last the second time around.

Excerpt

Malcolm grabbed Charmaine’s hand and led her back toward the tunnel.

“That was a great game, Malcolm.”

“Thanks, angel. That means a lot coming from you,” he told her.

“Where did your kids go?” She glanced around as if they would pop out at any moment.

“It’s their mother’s week to keep the kids, and she made plans to take them to a pizza place with her boyfriend.”

“Oh…”

“Everything okay?”

“Yeah, everything is fine,” she told him with a small smile.

“Speaking of fine…girl, you looked sexy in that outfit you wore to sing the national anthem. It was all I could do to stay on the sidelines and not come after you, especially when you turned around to walk back to the tunnel. I damn near bit my tongue looking at your ass.”

“Well, I did aim to please and wow the crowd,” she said.

“You succeeded. I can’t wait to get you back to my house. Go ahead and tell your security that you’ll be riding with me and that they have the rest of the night off. You’re staying with me tonight,” he said in a firm voice, gazing into her eyes.

“Oh, so I’m spending the night?” she asked, eyebrows raised.

“Oh, yeah baby, you’re going to spend the night in my arms.”

“Movie night?” she asked, gazing at him from beneath lowered lids.

“We can watch a movie too. I have the Iron Man trilogy, and I know how much you like him. Just don’t think that movies are all I have planned. I intend to taste you all over, from top to bottom and all the places in. And then I plan on starting all over.”

Charmaine fanned herself as she looked into his eyes and saw the heat of desire and the promise that lay within their chocolate depths. She had no problem with his plans. They had lost time to make up for.

“Talk is cheap, don’t talk about it, be about it.” Turning, she walked off toward her dressing room to await him, putting an extra sway in her hips. After a few steps, she looked over her shoulder where he stood rooted to the spot.

Licking his lips, Malcolm smiled before slowly walking toward her.

Wild Thoughts by Delaney Diamond and Giveaway!

Have you read Delaney Diamond’s latest release – WILD THOUGHTS? If not, you’re missing out! Below, check out a sneak peek, and enter for a chance to win Delaney’s giveaway!

Series: Brooks Family, Book 3

Standalone: Yes

Publication Date: August 10, 2018

Publisher: Garden Avenue Press

Genre: Contemporary Romance

It started with a little white lie…
Lindsay Winthrop’s weekly podcast on sex and dating has garnered thousands of listeners across the country, thanks to experience with a loving fiancé she’s been with for years. Except, her husband-to-be doesn’t exist, and now she’s in a bind. With a book deal on the line, she has to find a man fast, and Malik Brooks might be just the man she’s looking for.

If he knows what’s good for him, he’ll stay away from her…
A few years ago, Malik gave up sex and now works hard as a metal sculptor. In doing so, he’s created enough pieces to fill a gallery, and his vow of celibacy has kept him focused. When a major deal falls through, Lindsay makes him an offer he can’t refuse, and all he has to do is pretend to be her fiancé. Sounds easy at first, but after one kiss, he wants more. Then things really get interesting.

Excerpt 

Malik walked in holding a Styrofoam cup and brown paper sack and looked very delicious in a chest-hugging orange T-shirt and jeans. Her pulse rate tripled. She wanted him like she never wanted any man before. Breathe.

“Hey.” He gave the room a cursory review, and when the corners of his mouth pushed up into a slow, delicious smile, her toes curled in her shoes.

“What’s in the bag?” Lindsay went to stand in front of him.

“Mexican food from your new favorite place.” He handed the food and drinks to her.

His gaze traveled over her body, and she felt his look as if he’d trailed his fingers over her breasts and waist.

“My new favorite place?” she asked, continuing the friendly conversation despite the way the temperature in the room had raised a few notches. “On Buford Highway, I guess?”

“Of course.”

He was right. It was her new favorite place. She’d been back several times since their trip there.

Lindsay set the items on the table and peeked in the bag.

“A couple of tacos and a burrito,” Malik said. He was much closer now, his voice low and the heat from his body warming her back.

“That’s a lot of food.” She closed the bag.

“You can save some for later.”

Lindsay turned to face him, and he was standing closer than she thought. She reached for the mental strength required not to maul him.

“Why are you all up on me?” She stepped back so her thighs bumped the edge of the desk.

“Why do you think?” He came closer. A few more inches and they’d touch.

“I have no idea. I have no idea why you’re even here,” she whispered, because that’s all she could manage.

Malik hooked a finger in the waistband of her black slacks and pulled until the tips of her breasts touched his chest. His gaze dropped to her lips. “I think you know why I’m here.”

“Why don’t you tell me.”

His gaze flicked up to hers, and their eyes locked. “I’d rather show you.”

With a hand at her nape, Malik slanted his mouth over hers. She gave in without hesitation.

The Breakup Plan by Tia Kelly and Giveaway!

He ruined her wedding day and he’ll do it again until she’s his..

A man without a plan is a shell without purpose.

Which is why I sat down almost nine years ago and put pen to paper mapping out my ten-year plan. I meant business. Everything that could set me up for a lifetime of joy had to go down on the list, and every day I worked my ass off to fulfill it.

Open my own sports agency. Check.

Earn first million by my thirtieth birthday. I did that a week before I turned 26.

Negotiate the most lucrative contract in Major League’s history. Did that, too. Then went and broke my own record. (Thanks big bro!)

I could go on, but this isn’t about bragging. It’s me admitting in the midst of drafting something that helps shape and mold much of my success, I made a costly mistake.

One day I realized all those entries with corresponding checkmarks are pointless if I never factored into the equation the most important goal of all. Avery.

Perhaps way back then I wasn’t ready to see how much my best friend of fifteen years deserved that number one spot in my life. Maybe I was blind since the whole settle down and get married scenario wasn’t my thing since, well, forever. But now that I’m aware of the role I need her to fill in my life, there’s no such thing as letting go until I can convince her to be mine.

Considering she’s about to marry someone else does make winning her heart a little bit dicey. But if there’s anything you should ever know about me is that I always play to win. And losing Avery is non-negotiable.

 

Excerpt

She sits down on a padded wicker loveseat. Instead of going to a chair, I sit beside her. Close enough that her thigh brushes against mine a few times. Avery shifts to balance her plate and scoot away a few inches, but my proximity leaves little room for her to go.

“Tell me about the email.”

Her feigned interest in the food on her plate distracts me from the conversation. Avery was once a self-declared foodie, but this new version of her makes no sense, and coincides with him.

I slice a piece of sausage and drop it on her plate between the quinoa and blueberries she must have requested but has understandably lost interest in. “Try it.”

“Drew.”

Forking two of the pieces off my plate for myself, I chew and nudge her again. “Eat.”

“Stop talking with food in your mouth.” When she rolls her eyes and smirks at me, I know I’m making progress.

“I will if you eat that,” I say, pointing my fork at the sausage. Chef Laurel flew selections like this organic sage chicken sausage in just for Avery. He would likely grunt if I wanted something from the Whole Foods around the corner from my house. And I’m the one paying him. She has to know it. I know I do. Chef Laurel is wrapped around this woman’s finger, almost as tightly coiled around it as me.

Nah, there’s no way she could have anyone else as twisted around that pinky as tight as me.

Avery just has this effect on people. Even random strangers love doing things for her, because she’s always so giving of herself, and cares without expectation. Avery also adores Chef Laurel, and when he prepared a meal once with this sausage from whatever city we were visiting at the time, Avery made it known for an entire week straight how much she loved it. To thank her for appreciating his food, Chef often sends for it just because he knows how much she enjoys it.

And like the voice of temptation, it’s my duty to remind her of these things. “You know you want to.”

The corner of her mouth twitches until she graces me with a sweet smile. “I do.”

“I know. Here.” I add a full link and one of my pancakes to her plate.

To my surprise, she doesn’t protest anymore. I do catch a moment of remorse after her first bite, but by the second one, she’s forgotten all about the pile of quinoa on her plate.

“Mmmmm.”

This is where things get uncomfortable. Not like it was beachside yesterday—I’m talking about the way she just woke up my penis with that moan, like she did the other night. It doesn’t help that her head rolls back, as she has no shame indulging in what is obviously a rare moment of ecstasy—hair falling back over the sofa cushion, that sensual neck of hers daring me to move closer for a nip, and those brown eyes damn near rolling back into yesterday do me all the way in.

So how do I handle it? I take some more food off my plate and give it to her. You think I’m going to pass up the chance at watching someone as beautiful as Avery damn near have an orgasm over some buttermilk pancakes and maple syrup?

Avery takes another bite of my pancake and follows it with a quick swipe of the tongue to catch a drop of syrup hanging on to the edge of her bottom lip.

“What did the email say?”

Huh? I blink to shake the trance she put me in. “Oh. Donovan approved the budget and next month’s shooting schedule.”

Whatever I said instantly robs Avery of the blissful expression on her face that I was enjoying with her. I’ve heard about sexual encounters that fizzle with a quickness, so I’m guessing this would be the food version.

“What?” I ask.

Setting her plate down on the table in front of us, Avery starts to move in careful, measured ways. “Next month?”

“Why is that a surprise? You’re the one that drafted the schedule.”

She nods, and when she bites on her lip, I know whatever she’s about to say is not going to be good. “About that.”

Leveling my eyes on her, I put my plate down then drop an arm across the back of the sofa. “Avery.”

“I was hoping we could discuss this when we got back to Philly, but I guess I might as well tell you now.”

“Tell me what, Avery? Just spill it.”
