Jaded Hearts by Harper Sloan #loadedreplay #rockstarromance #teasers #excerpt #bookreview


JADED HEARTS
Loaded Replay Series
By Harper Sloan

Signing with Brighthouse Records was supposed to be everything we ever
wanted—our better life. Our chance at everything we never had but always
wanted. All our dreams would finally come true and we were on top of the world.
It was our chance at the happiness we never had in life.

Our every desire was at our fingertips and the power of that feeling was all
consuming. But then it took every dream we thought would come true and it
slapped us in the face with the cold hard reality.

Dreams were just that…something that floated on the cusp of untouchable,
taunting you with every graze of your fingertips before slipping even further
away.

Happiness…that feeling is a joke.

In the end it became painfully obvious that each of us would always have each
other, but we would forever be alone.

EXCERPT

Goddamn, that smile is dangerous.
Who am I kidding?  He is dangerous.  
I do my best to ignore him, but it’s impossible.  The steady brush of his arm against where mine is resting on our shared armrest constantly reminds me how much my body wants his touch.  The scent of his delicious cologne hits my senses, making me want to climb in his lap and rub my face over his chest to get a potent lungful of it.  
I can’t even remember the last time I was this horny, which is pathetically sad, since it was probably around the same time I actually got laid.  Years. I think. Close to three. Maybe that’s why I’m a hot mess lately. I turn my head to study the side of his face and wonder if I can use this situation to my advantage.  I mean, after all, we are in a ‘relationship’ now.
He turns and gives me a questioning arch of his dark brows, but I brush it off in favor of playing Disney Emoji Blitz on my phone.  
By the time we had hit cruising altitude, I could hear the other men around me snoring away but not Chance.  He’s fiddling with his phone, completely ignorant of the fact I’m about to start humping his leg.
“Excuse me,” I breathily say, unbuckling my belt and standing to move around him.  I stand there, my head bent slightly because of the overhead, and wait. He doesn’t move, though.  Instead, he drops his phone to his lap and gives me his complete attention; his eyes even dance a little like he’s finding this whole damn thing funny.  “Excuse me,” I repeat, no longer breathy, and seconds away from coming.
No, that’s a lie.  I’m still breathy and very much seconds away from soaking my panties even more than they already are.
His large hands grab my hips, and he guides me down on his lap with no resistance from my treacherous body.
“Not what I meant,” I say through clenched teeth, trying to sound harsh and offended, but I just sound dazed and turned on.  I wiggle in his hold, trying to get free, but he’s too strong for me.
He leans up in his seat, his chest hitting my back and buries his face in my neck.  I’m sure anyone who saw us would see a loving couple who just can’t keep their hands to themselves.  He’s playing a dangerous game, though, because the second the solid, hard length of him presses against my backside, I forget this is supposed to be a game and squirm a little more.  His teeth nip at my shoulder at the same time his groan hits my ears.
“Stop moving, Wren,” he demands, tightening his fingers on my hips.
“You’re the one who put me on your lap.”  I curl my fingers over the empty seat in front of me and squeeze my eyes shut when I feel him growing harder under me.
“Yeah, because the flight attendant who just walked by had her phone out and pointed right at us.  She’s doing a shit job of making it look like she’s doing something with her paperwork.” His hand comes off my hip, and he cups my jaw, turning my head to the side just when I was about to look up at where I last saw the attendant, forcing me to shift until all it would take is me throwing one leg over his body to be face-to-face.  “Do not look at her,” he stresses; the sudden movement of twisting my body makes me bounce slightly in his lap, rubbing my legging-clad ass against his erection. His eyes drop to my mouth where I pull my bottom lip between my teeth and groan.
“Give me a reason not to look,” I dare him.
“You don’t want to go down that road, Wren.  I’ll protect you from the world, but you need to protect yourself from me.”
“No one is asking you to.”
Not even knowing if we’re still being watched, I twist my torso the rest of the way, pulling my legs up until they’re bent at his stomach between us.  Now that I’m facing him completely, I bring my hands up to curl them both around his shoulders before dragging them up to wrap around the corded muscles at the sides of his neck.  His nostrils flare, but he doesn’t stop me. I give him the chance, but it never comes. Dropping my head, I press my lips to his. I explore his lips with small pecks and little licks of my tongue, learning his mouth before pressing more firmly.  He sucks in a breath when I open my mouth and slowly drag the tip of my tongue over his bottom lip.
And then his control snaps.
His hands—still at my hips—lift me effortlessly until my legs are no longer folded between us, but now digging into the hard armrests with my knees pushing into his thighs, my back hitting the seat in front of me.  His mouth opens, and his tongue meets mine, no hesitation whatsoever, as he deepens the kiss.
Our breathing echoes around us, making it sound like everyone on this plane could hear us, but I know it’s just because our faces are so close.  I let out a moan, one that he swallows, that turns into a whine when he pulls back.
“That can’t happen again,” he softly scolds, just as breathless as I am.
What the hell?  I might not have been into this whole fake-boyfriend-slash-bodyguard thing before, but I’ll be damned if I’m not going to take advantage of the situation.  Especially now that I know how alive he makes me feel. Three years since I had pleasure from anything other than my own hand, and if that kiss is anything to go by, what Chance could make me feel is ten times more powerful than anything I’ve ever felt in my whole life.  
I’m not passing that up.
Nope.
No fucking way.
“We’ll see about that.”

Part 1 of a spin off series


My Jaded Hearts Review . . .

Jaded Hearts is a spin off series from the Corps security series and the Hope Town series.  I have read the Corps security series but not the Hope town series, but its written that it can be a standalone series.  However, I'm always a fan of the background of series.  And after reading this I now know I need to back track and read the Hope Town series.   Especially since Hope Town evolves around the children of the Corps Security series.

In Jaded Hearts, we have Wrenlee Davenport, whom is the lead singer of Loaded Replay.  During their tour Wrenlee starts getting threats which makes the rest of Loaded Replay want to beef up their security.   With this new security they contact Corps Security and end up hiring Chance Nash.

Both Wren and Chance are a bit hesitant when it comes to trusting others, but there is something about each other that draws them into one another.  At first both try to fight the pull put chemistry ends up winning.  These two have explosive chemistry and their relationship goes from one to sixty in a flash.  Normally that would be a bit too fast when reading a story but in the celebrity world things don't follow the same time frame.

The more Wren and Chance grow closer the less the threats become leaving Chance with a gnawing feeling that he's missing something. 

I did like Wren and Chance together.  At times Wren didn't win me over with some of her emotional choices but its written in away that you get where Wren is emotionally challenged.

This was a good start to this new series.  It was sweet and sexy and now I can't wait for more from this Loaded Replay series.  Up next is Jamieson!! However, truly its Wes's story that I'm most excited for.

3 Sweet and Sexy thumbs up!

Rome Chance by Joanna Wylde Review & Excerpt Tour #ReapersMC #novella #bookreview #excerpt

 


From New York Times Bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes ROME’S CHANCE, a new novella in her Reapers MC series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!


 


About ROME’S CHANCE: From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes a new story in her Reapers MC series…

Rome McGuire knew he was in trouble the first time he saw her.

She was sweet and pretty and just about perfect in every way. She was also too young and innocent for the Reapers Motorcycle Club. He did the right thing, and walked away.

The second time, he couldn’t resist tasting her.

Gorgeous and smart, fun and full of wonder, she jumped on his bike and would’ve followed him anywhere. Still, she deserved a shot at happiness somewhere bigger and better than a town like Hallies Falls. Walking away wasn’t so easy that time, but her family needed her and he had a job to do.

When she came around a third time, he’d had enough. Randi Whittaker had been given two chances to escape, and now it was time for Rome to take his.

This time, the only way Randi would be leaving Hallies Falls was on the back of Rome’s bike.

Standalone and part of a series


My Rome's Chance Review . . .

It has been forever and a day since I read anything from the Reaper MC series.  So, once I found out about this opportunity I jumped at the chance to review this novella.  This is technically part of the Reaper MC series but it can also be read as a standalone.   Rome's Chance happens 8 years after Reaper's fire, which means there is a bit of overlap with some of the characters from Reaper's fire but it's also set up as a good introduction into the series if you are new to this series.

Rome is part of the Reaper's but he also is an EMT in Hallies Falls.  Eight years ago Randi used to work for Tinker (Gage's Old lady from Reaper's Fire) then a fire came through town causing Randi and her family to leave.  Now eight years later Randi is back for a school reunion but ends up there for good when she realizes how much she is needed back home. 

Eight years ago Rome took Randi on a date then a fire tore them apart.  Now that Randi is back Rome isn't going to let her go. 

This novella was super sweet.  It also had sad moments and funny moments.  It was the perfect introduction if new to this series but also a great visit back into the world of the Reapers if you're a fan of this series.

I adored Rome.  He was sexy and sweet.  Both of these two had heartbreaking stories but their pasts and baggage is also what brings them together for the long haul.  All the characters were great.  Especially Randi's little sister.  My fingers are crossed she meets her own Reaper one day and gets her own book.

3. 5 Thank goodness for second chances thumbs up!

EXCERPT

Rome seemed to have things under control in here, and it wasn’t like there was anything I could do to help anyway. Go outside and pull yourself together. It didn’t take long to cross the room. There was still a crowd hanging around the patio door, but I managed to slip through the bodies and work my way outside into the cool night air.
Oh, that was better.
A lot better.
The space was a bare-bones concrete slab, surrounded by the fence I’d seen when we’d first arrived. There were about twenty metal tables, and strings of white lights gave everything a cheerful glow. The patio was mostly empty, although I saw a young couple off to one side. Everyone else must’ve either gone inside to watch the spectacle or they’d left.
I walked over to one of the corners, forcing myself to lean back against the wooden boards and calm down. I couldn’t quite believe how fast everything had gone weird and wrong. Rome had been right about one thing—the Starkwood Saloon was fun. They had good music and I’d enjoyed the dancing.
Wasn’t such a fan of the fighting, though.
That’d been scary. Really scary. The more I thought about it, the more it bothered me. Not so much that there’d been a fight, but that Rome had taken me to a place so rough that the waitresses needed baseball bats to keep the peace.
Oh, and the shotgun.
That whole shooting thing wasn’t so spiffy, either.
The fight hadn’t had anything to do with Rome, of course. And Tinker insisted that it’d come as a surprise… Specifically, she’d been surprised that it’d gotten so big. Not that there’d been a fight in the first place. I couldn’t decide if that made it better or worse. Better that there weren’t always big fights, for sure. But even small fights shouldn’t really be the norm, right?
Then there was the fact that the Reapers never left each other behind when a fight started. Did that mean they had some kind of fight-related policy, or was it just so common that Tinker knew the drill? Either way, violence didn’t seem to bother them.
Rome certainly seemed comfortable with it.

TATTERED By Devney Perry #CoverReveal #teaser

 


  

  Thea Landry has always known her place in modern-day society. It’s somewhere just above the trash can her mother dumped her in as a newborn but below the class where much comes easy. With her tattered shoes and bargain-bin clothes, her life has never been full of glamour. So when a rich and charismatic man takes interest, she doesn’t fool herself into thinking their encounter is anything more than a one-night stand. Months later, she’s kicking herself for not getting his phone number. Or his last name. She’s given up hope of seeing him ever again. 

 Until one day, years later, Logan Kendrick waltzes into her life once more and turns everything she’s built upside down. This time around, she won’t make the same mistake. She’s going to fight to keep him in her life—not for herself. But for their daughter.
