Excerpt


X

Sliding out of the booth, I sauntered across the pub and ducked behind the counter. Nobody gave me a second glance. They didn’t know who I was, nobody did, but they knew I wasn’t anybody good. Peering through the window on the door, Mercy had her back turned, wiping at her damp T-shirt. I could step into her from behind and show her how hard I was…but that wasn’t the way this game was going to be played.

Pressing the door open with the flat of my palm, she looked up at me with blue eyes that gave away two things. Her hair wasn’t naturally black and by the way her pupils dilated, she was amped up. I was interested in only one of these observations and by the way my cock began to stir, there was no guessing which one was the money shot.

Mercy glared up at me, trying to cover her surprise at my appearance.


“What the fuck do you want?” she spat, dabbing at her tiny T-shirt with a rag. “You’re not allowed back here. Employees only."

I stepped closer, not put off by her tone at all. I’d had worse.

“I don’t give a shit,” I said.

She eyed me, her gaze raking from head to cock and back up again.

I quirked an eyebrow, my lip curling in amusement.

“If you want something, just fucking say it,” she said with an exasperated sigh. “I don’t even know who the fuck you are."

“X.”

“X, what?” she said, putting her hands on her hips. Bitch didn’t miss a trick.

“It’s my name."

"X as in the Letter x?" She rolled her eyes.

"Got a problem?" I asked, inching closer.


“Yeah.” She nodded at me. “You’re in a staff only area. You might be all buddy buddy with Weiss, but I don’t know you from shit."

“The mouth on you,” I breathed, totally turned on. I knew she had bite in her, but fucking Jesus H Christ. The more she bit, the harder I got. My gaze rested on her tits. Yeah, I was a tits man through and through and hers...

“You think I’m going to let you fuck me?” she scoffed, her bluntness doing nothing but turning me on even more.

My gaze snapped back to hers. “Who said I was going to fuck you?"

She pressed her hips forward, her groin rubbing into mine. “Your cock."

My hand shot up and grasped the hair at the nape of her neck. With a sharp tug, her head fell to the side, leaving her neck exposed. If I was an asshole, I’d just take her now, but I wasn’t…fuck that. I was an asshole. Asshole was too safe a word to describe the kind of man I was.

“No,” I said, running my gaze down her pale neck and over her tits. “No, I’m not going to fuck you, Mercy.” She gave me a look that screamed ‘offended' and it only made me grin wider. “Not here. When I fuck you, I’m not going to share your screams with anyone."

Her entire body shivered and I knew I had her. Next time, she would come to me.

Letting her go, I let her hair run between my fingers and it took her a beat too long to step back and separate our bodies.

Giving her one last appreciative look, I turned on my heel and exited the ‘employee only’ room. I could wait. My cock strained against my jeans in protest, but this was one desire I was playing out and savoring.

I strode across the bar and pushed out the door, rearranging myself.

I could wait.

Cover Reveal // Ryley's Revenge & Paxton's Promise by L.P. Dover



I absolutely love this series and am a new fan of Susan Arden after reading A Fighter's Desire Part 1 & 2. You can check out my review for the novella, here. I haven't read Tyler's Undoing, but I will soon! I'm rather obsessed with this series and can't wait to read Ryley's Revenge and Paxton's Promise!

Synopsis


UFC Middleweight fighter, Ryley Jameson, swore it would never happen again. He was done with his ex, and over the pain she’d inflicted when she left him. At least, that’s what he tells people. Maybe if he says it enough, he’ll begin to believe it himself.

Regretting her decision to let Ryley go, Ashleigh Warren comes back into town and confronts him. Holding only one secret back, she puts the rest on the line and asks for a second chance. Too bad he’s not going to let her off easy.

Camden Jameson loves his twin brother, but his jealousy runs deep. They may be identical in looks, but that’s where the similarities end. When Ashleigh comes back into Ryley’s life, Camden has the perfect opportunity for revenge. Two birds, one stone.

A journey to the Dark Side affects them all, but only one feels the true sting of revenge.


Synopsis


She hates him, yet she can’t get him out of her mind.

Female Bantamweight fighter, Gabriella Reynolds, has a bad habit of falling for forbidden fighters. Enter Paxton Emerson. He’s tall, tattooed, and the current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. Everyone wants a piece of him, and he only has eyes for her. Through no choice of her own, she’s fallen in his debt and he’s now demanding payment. Too bad it doesn’t involve currency. Gabby’s decision to fulfill her promise to him ultimately brings out her true feelings, but also spurs the unwanted attention of another.

Rage’s fixation on his newest obsession reaches dangerous levels. Unfortunately, Paxton Emerson has become a roadblock to his end goal and needs to be removed from the equation—by any means necessary.

Gabby will do anything to save Pax, but what happens when she’s the one who needs saving?

A Fighter's Desire -- Part One


Two is always better than one.

What would you do if you were given the chance to spend the night with not one, but two fighters? Would you do it? Could you open yourself up to the pleasures they offered and do exactly what they said in order to pass on to the next round?

It was common knowledge that Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were in the ring. The only problem was that if you didn’t pass their test on the first night, then you didn’t proceed to the next round. They loved a good fight, and that's what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren.

Ashleigh knew what was going to happen when the twins approached her with a proposition, and needless to say, she knew exactly how to handle them … or so she thought. The rules had changed, and in order to get them both she had to first spend one night with each and last until they were done with her. It was a proposition she couldn’t refuse, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. However, it was one that she was going to enjoy.


A Fighter's Desire -- Part 2


When you’re told to stay away from someone or something it only drives the urge to go after it more. In this case, that was exactly what happened. For years, Gabriella Reynolds—younger sister of MMA’s Heavyweight Champion, Matt Reynolds—was warned by him to stay away from his fighter friends; she deserved better and they would only break her heart.

Did she listen? Yes, for a while, but temptation can only consume you so much until you fall into its trap. There’s a certain fighter she’s interested in, and it just so happens that he’s her brother’s best friend, the only one that is completely off limits to her. However, she’s not the only one fighting temptation. Tyler Rushing can’t deny his attraction to her, but he’s afraid she’ll want more and he can’t give that to her. When he finds out that’s not the case … everything changes.

Secrets can be dangerous, but they can also be thrilling and intense. Gabriella and Tyler have no choice but to keep their time together a secret … and it’s a secret that’ll stay with them forever.

Excerpt


I go to the Underground. It’s deserted this early, but I know some of the acolytes will be there, and a few priests. It’s a gamble, but it’s what I have.

I could go to Omar. It would take very little to reach out to the High Priest, and I know him—he might be loyal to the Order, but he’ll do whatever he can to destabilize the Red Priestess. Even helping me steal back a sacrifice.

But that would mean trusting him. And I’m not ready for that. Not yet.

So I go to the vice clubs.

The doors are locked. I bang once, and wait impatiently until two acolytes pry open the door. “The clubs are closed until sunset,” the one in green robes lisps.

“I’m not here for the vice clubs,” I say. “I need to see the High Priest of the Haven.”

They exchange a quick look, and then the Red shakes her head. She’s familiar—the same acolyte who attended me when I fought. The sweet hospitality in her eyes from the previous night is gone now, replaced with a cool reserve that borders on hostility. She isn’t a woman impressed right now. She’s a fledgling priestess protecting the Order. And that makes me smile, slow and amused.

“He isn’t here.”

“Tell him that Finn O’Malley needs to see him. He has two hours to meet me at the house on the edge of the wall and return what he took from me. If I don’t have her by then, I will start killing his priests—and I won’t stop until every member of the Order in 1 is dead.” I pause, and stare at them. Their eyes are wide, fear mixing with anger and shock.

They don’t believe me. And because of that, they won’t deliver the message. I lean in and murmur into the space between them. “If you think I wouldn’t do it—I want you to know, I fought for Kelsey Buchman in the war. There is nothing I wouldn’t do. And if she isn’t there, in two hours, yours will be the first blood I spill.”

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000446_00074]

Synopsis


Separated from Finn, captive of the Order, Nurrin has no hope left. But she has survived twenty years of zombies--and she has the unshakable faith that Finn will find her. But Finn is a long way away. The Order's influence runs deeper than was ever suspected, and politics are shifting--and zombies may not be the most dangerous thing she's facing. Finn always thought the war stripped him of all he had to lose. But with Nurrin missing and doors closing in his face, he realizes there is always more for the world to take--and he will drag the remains of civilization down with him before he gives up on the only promise that matters.

Excerpt


Brady. He was here. He had come to pick her up. A million emotions hit her all at once. Her heart ached as it pounded fiercely in her chest. She had missed him so much. The weeks had stretched interminably long.

She caught his eyes and her stomach flopped.

Without a thought for Victoria, Daniel, or her discarded bags, she dashed across the airport. She felt she was in a movie as she rushed toward the man she loved. When she reached him, she threw herself into his arms. Her body thudded against his chest and she pressed her face into his shoulder. His arms pulled her flush against him and he hoisted her up so that her feet tucked up behind her. He smelled unbelievably masculine and delicious. The strength in the embrace grounded her, and everything felt right in the world.“Hey baby,” Brady whispered in her ear.

Blog Tour + Review // Dragon Heart


ADD TO GOODREADS
  TitleDragon Heart (Rocky Mountain Shifters) 
  Author:  Susan Arden 
  Genre:  Paranormal Romance 18+ 
  Publication Date:  November 10, 2014 
  Publisher:  Crimson Romance 
  Event Organized By:  Literati Author Services, Inc.  

Synopsis

Leopardess Shay Barclay has a choice: go along with her family’s political plan to marry her to a ruthless shifter older than her grandfather or claim her life and her sexuality for her own.  She wastes no time in choosing freedom, but in her haste to establish her own boundaries, she just may have trusted her heart to the wrong man – a dragon shifter who’s too dangerous to resist…

Former Navy SEAL Drake O’Connor personally guaranteed he’d protect his buddy’s daughter to the death. But when his explosive chemistry with Shay finally boils over and they end up in bed, her family’s political enemies are the least of their problems.  Because although Shay doesn’t know it, she’s crossed a line with Drake that will alter their future for an eternity…


Review

Let me start off with Leopardess and Dragon! Just imagine them together and you get quite the explosion, but in a good way. I sure did enjoy this book and all the characters, I was completely hooked the entire time. But was rather frustrated with Miss Shay and her decisions; 'run' should be her middle name!

Drake is not only protecting Shay, but he wants her! And to claim her as his mate. Shay is betrothed to marry Dimitri, who is someone that all of you will not like. Even her parents are set with Shay's arranged marriage, which is a bit of an odd notion in Shay's book! Shay has no desire to be with Dimitri, but has her eyes set on Drake. Their first night togther will alter their lives and you'll get to witness the run and chase between these two. Their chemistry is off the charts and you wonder if Drake will be able to tame the stubborn Leopard.

As stubborn as Shay was, I definitely understood her thought process. She was looking out for herself and wanted the freedom to make her own decisions especially when it came to who she was going to marry. She's definitely not a girl you can tie down, she's got claws and isn't afraid to use them.

Drake, Drake, Drake; he's definitely the alpha male and not very happy when he wakes after Shay swiftly left him in bed after a night of passion. You have one very pissed of dragon, who would probably burn through anyone and everyone to find Shay. We shoot forward to five months later and boy was I excited for them to meet again!

I was completely intrigued the entire time and I loved the suspenseful ride it took us on! It's actually tough to write this review because there's so much I want to say. It's a great mix of paranormal and fantasy, so I'm sure it'll satisfy your needs for that genre. There's a huge element to this story that makes their ride much more of a crazier one. And you'll love the ending, so yes there is very much a HEA.

I hope this is a series because I want more of Drake and Shay!

A Fighter's Desire -- Part One


Two is always better than one.

It was common knowledge that Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were in the ring. The only problem was that if you didn’t pass their test on the first night, then you didn’t proceed to the next round.

The rules had changed, and in order to get them both she had to first spend one night with each and last until they were done with her. It was a proposition she couldn’t refuse, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. However, it was one that she was going to enjoy.





Review

These books were a first read for me from L.P. Dover and I love my MMA fighter reads, so of course I didn't turn down this one. But after reading the synopsis and learning twins were involved, I came up with several scenarios of how it would turn out. And yes, threesome did come to mind, but let me just say that I was pleasantly surprised.

For the most part, I did like Ashleigh, there were times when I just wanted to grab her by the hair and be like, "what the hell are you doing?!". She's definitely a spitfire and can definitely handle the havoc that the twins like to wreak on every woman they come across. And unlike some, Ashleigh can in fact say, "NO" to the sexiness that is the twins.

After both being rejected by Ashleigh, Ryley and Camden decided to proposition her with an offer she can't refuse. But things didn't quite pan as well as they hoped for one of them.

I love that we got the chance to see past the promiscuity that the twins have and know them a little deeper. As much as a douche bag that Camden can be, my heart does break a little for him. There's definitely so much turmoil and pain going on with him, and I'm actually really eager to read more of his story. And to meet the lovely lady that will tear down his barriers that are completely made out of steel. It definitely won't be an easy journey, but in the end I have hope that he'll get exactly what he needs.

Ryley! I love Ryley, he's definitely a sweet one and is the perfect match for Ashleigh, believe it or not. There moments together were explosive and was completely drawn to the both of them. Trust me ladies, you'll love Ryley and have so much hope for him because of Ashleigh.

I wish I could say so much more, but the ending broke my heart. I refuse to accept what happened. It's a quick read that will leave you hanging a bit, but it begs you to continue reading on in the series. And I have hunch that all the books in the series will be like this until we get to the very last one.

MY RATING : 4 STARS



A Fighter's Desire -- Part 2


When you’re told to stay away from someone or something it only drives the urge to go after it more. In this case, that was exactly what happened. For years, Gabriella Reynolds—younger sister of MMA’s Heavyweight Champion, Matt Reynolds—was warned by him to stay away from his fighter friends; she deserved better and they would only break her heart.

Did she listen? Yes, for a while, but temptation can only consume you so much until you fall into its trap. There’s a certain fighter she’s interested in, and it just so happens that he’s her brother’s best friend, the only one that is completely off limits to her. However, she’s not the only one fighting temptation. Tyler Rushing can’t deny his attraction to her, but he’s afraid she’ll want more and he can’t give that to her. When he finds out that’s not the case … everything changes.

Secrets can be dangerous, but they can also be thrilling and intense. Gabriella and Tyler have no choice but to keep their time together a secret … and it’s a secret that’ll stay with them forever.




Review

After being in a bit of a heartbreak from the way things ended in Part 1, I was eager to read on with Part 2, but also a bit nervous. Because we all know that we'd see Ashleigh and Ryley come up again, everyone is connected! Part 2 deals with Gabrielle and Tyler and after finishing this one, I would say that Gabrielle is my favorite between her and Ashleigh. Don't get me wrong, I like Ashleigh minus a certain decision she made, but Gabrielle wins. She's a badass and can hold her own, just my type of character, the tough girl.

There was one moment in the story, where I was pretty sure that she was going to back out of something, but she blew me away with that one. And I love it when they just prove everyone wrong, even the tough MMA fighters ;) You go girl, keep doing what you're doing.

Ladies and gentleman, we have another duo that should be together, but I have a feeling we all won't get what we want with this one. And I'm hoping for a reasonable explanation in the books to comes. Yes I went to check out the titles of the books to come and their synopsis, and when I didn't see two names together that I wanted to, it made me sad, but I shall wait to get my answers.

Tyler (sexy MMA fighter) and Gabrielle (sister of a MMA fighter & Ashleigh's BFF) have a flirty history together, but there's also Bradley (friend from school), the guy that's totally in love with her. Gabrielle cares about Bradley and feels that she could love him at some point in the future, but the timing isn't right and he's not what she wants right now.

After having an amazing weekend with Tyler in Las Vegas, we witness the feelings Gabrielle starts to develop and knowing that Tyler has no intention of changing his no-relationship philosophy. I feel like all these fighters haven't gotten one too many punches to the head, they drive me crazy! So for now, their little affair is a secret.

I want them together so bad, but the book ended and it wasn't all the wonderful, yet again. So read on, I shall! Tyler's Undoing is next in the series, so I'm very interested to see what happens with the friendship/relationship. but I already have my hunches after reading the synopsis.

PART 1

“You don’t even know me,” I challenged. “Why do you want me to be your date? You saw me for one second when you were up in the ring. I could be the biggest bitch in the world for all you know.”

“That could be true. If you want the honest truth,” he said, gazing down my body, “I saw you in that red dress and all I could think about was how hot it would be to fuck you in it.”

Holding in my gasp, I tightened my legs together to keep my clit from throbbing out of control. It pissed me off that my body responded to him, but it could also be because he was so close; brushing his heated body against mine, and smelling so amazingly delicious. The wild side of me wanted to tell him to take me right then and there, but the logical side wanted to slap the shit out of him.

“Do you honestly get women by saying stuff like that?” I asked dryly, without a hint of a smile.

His grin grew wider. “Most of the time. So what do you say? Do you want to be my date for the night … the whole night?”

Yes, my mind screamed at me.

“No,” I snapped, making his smug smile disappear. “I’m not one of your little groupies, Ryley, and I sure as hell am not going to beg for your attention like what you’re used to. You need to find someone else. I’m not interested.”

You just lied again, I scolded myself.

Turning on my heel, I headed for the door and opened it, only to be stopped by a hand grasping my arm and the door shutting quickly in front of me. “Don’t you see? I don’t want anyone else. I saw you and you are what I want.”

Laughing, I turned around and yanked my arm out of his hold. “Tell that to someone who’ll believe you, Ryley. I don’t fall that easily, especially for someone who hasn’t had to work for a woman. You’ll have to do much better than that.”

Or else I’m not going to play the game.

PART 2

Breathing hard, I stepped out of Tyler’s reach and started for the door, much to his dismay. “Why are you here, Gabriella?”

Keeping my back to him, I paused with my hand on the knob, and blew out a heavy sigh. “I told you. When I want something, I get it. I wanted to see you.”

“You’re walking a dangerous line, Gabriella. I don’t do relationships, and I don’t plan on starting … even if it is with you.”

I glanced at him over my shoulder. “Well, then I guess it’s a good thing I don’t want one with you either. Look, Tyler, I’m only here for the weekend. If you want to see me again you know how to find me. No strings, just you and me.”


Synopsis


She was what he wanted … but she was also his undoing.

Through mutual understanding, Tyler’s secret affair with Gabriella Reynolds has come to an end. It’s a decision that not only saves their friendship, but it’s one that will change his life forever.

For the past couple of years, Tyler Rushing has been known as one of the UFC’s most memorable and sexy heavyweight fighters. Now he has the chance to win the title and claim the fame he so deserves. He has everything he could ever want until Kacey Andrews walks through the door of his gym, wanting nothing to do with him. Keeping his eyes off of her is a challenge; there’s an innocence about her that draws him to her, and he’s not going to stop until he makes her his. Little does he know that Kacey Andrews isn’t a stranger. She’s a part of his world; he just doesn’t know it. It’s a secret she’s worked hard to keep hidden.

Kacey spent years trying to get away from the fighting world, away from the man who’s hated among the MMA elite … her brother, Kyle Andrews. Unfortunately, she’s brought back into it when Tyler’s relentless battle for her heart wins her over, drawing her in. The only problem is that secrets never stay buried forever. In the end, Tyler has a decision to make, and it’s one that can possibly destroy his and Kacey’s life … forever.

Excerpt


“I have one more question for you,” she murmured, leaning her head against the seat and biting her lip provocatively. Her skin tight green T-shirt hung so close to her skin I could see her nipples peeking through the fabric; I wanted to taste them, to roll my tongue around them and make them pucker more. I wanted to taste all of her.

“What’s the question?” I growled low, watching her tongue slide across her lips.

Slowly, she moved forward and stopped only an inch away from me, her mouth so achingly close. It killed me to keep my calm, to not pick her up, carry her into my house, throw her on my bed, and just fuck her like I’d been dying to do since the day I met her. I had never wanted someone so bad and not be able to have them.

“I’m ready for you, Tyler. Are you ready for me?”

Grasping the back of her neck, I brought her closer and gently nipped her bottom lip making her gasp. “You have no fucking idea.”
