Get ready to laugh out loud, swoon, and fall in love with this new, fun, and sexy stand-alone novel from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig. Demonstrating her versatility in writing, Aleatha revisits her lighter side that you loved in PLUS ONE. A complete stand-alone, ANOTHER ONE is the next big summer hit.   *Shana* Trevor Willis is sexy, sweet, and oh so fun. He’s also my best friend’s brother-in-law. That should mean he’s off-limits, or that I should be off-limits to him. Someone probably should have told us that before my best friend married his brother, before the morning of the wedding when we woke in each other’s arms with gaping holes in my memory. They didn’t. We did. The hilarious truth behind our crazy, secret adventure secured this handsome, off-limits man in my heart. But alas, life goes on. After our one secret night, we went back to our lives—our hardworking, solitary lives. And then it happened. My phone began to buzz. Each night with thousands of miles between us, we laughed, talked, and shared. And then, the phone stopped ringing. Before it did, I knew one thing... Our secret one had bloomed and blossomed, and now that our circumstances have changed I want another one!   *Trevor* Shana Price is that one woman. You know, the one who suddenly makes the world more than a place to work, but also a place to live. Usually shy and awkward, in her presence I want to be more—I am more. I don’t even have to try. She’s my one. I knew it the moment I first met her. What followed simply confirmed it. The problem is the little hassle of the thousands of miles between us. I tried to make it work, but each phone call made it harder. (Yes, that is a pun) I couldn’t take it any more—and she became the one who got away. Now, everything has changed. Shana is back in the United States—all I have to do is make her see that her job isn’t the only reason to stay. That shouldn’t be a problem, right? From a secret one to another one! Try Aleatha’s lighter side for a guaranteed smile—the perfect getaway. Have you been Aleatha’d?

 Excerpt

  ~ Trevor ~ 

Sweet and tangy. Shana Price tastes like sugar with a twist of lemon. My mind tells me to go slow, reminding me that I don’t have any right to this beautiful woman. My mind is saying to stop, yet her soft moan is all I hear. My body has its own GPS with the destination close. Listening to my mind is out of the question. Her petite body shivers as I tease her sweet lips. They willingly part as my tongue delves inside, wrestling with hers. Not giving up its fight, my thoughts remind me how forward this behavior is and how it isn’t like me. Trevor Willis is not a man who chases a woman down, pins her against the wall, and kisses her until neither of us can breathe or cares. It’s not me. But, it should be. I like it. I won’t blame the alcohol. I’ll blame my need to know it’s really Shana and to claim her for my own. I didn’t do it last time, and I’ve regretted it every day since. When her hands come to my chest, I seize them, lifting them above her head and pinning them to the wall. Shana doesn’t fight; instead, her hips move against mine and our kiss grows more passionate. In the dark, crowded hallway, with my body pressed against hers, I swallow the soft moans coming from her throat. At that moment, I want to be anywhere but a crowded bar in the middle of Manhattan. I no longer care about Eric’s bachelor party or my friends. I don’t even care about Kimbra back out in the bar. All I want is to whisk Shana away and do what we didn’t do before, what her body and mine are ready and aching to do.

About 13

“Fake it till you make it.”   A notion I once considered utterly ridiculous. Until one crazy night with a mysterious man resulted in a social media frenzy that had the entire entertainment industry talking.   Seems a fake marriage was just what my career needed to make Hollywood come knocking.   Convincing him to continue the charade was almost too easy. The chemistry between us made it impossible to keep my hands to myself. But it was all just pretend, right? Love was never in the script.   That is, until he re-wrote it.   13 Reasons You Should Stay:  
  1. I’m crazy about you
  2. I make you laugh
  3. You totally dig me

Exclusive Excerpt

The first thing I noticed were his eyes. Bottle green with the tiniest flecks of copper scattered throughout, and when the light hit them just right, those flecks sparkled in the most intriguing way. His shaggy caramel-blond hair stuck up in all directions, as if he’d been running his fingers through it all day, and the longer I stared, the more I found myself wanting to do the same thing. Tattoos circled both of his wrists, and his ears were pierced and adorned in black onyx. He had a smile that could simultaneously melt your heart and panties. Everything about him screamed male model, and if he wasn’t, then he sure as hell should be. He was that gorgeous. The bar was packed, and he was seated close. So close his muscular thigh pressed tightly against mine, making it impossible to ignore his presence. Not that I wanted to or anything. By the time I finished examining him, I looked up and found his pouty lips were puckered as if he was deep in thought. Either that or he was thinking about kissing me. Yeah, I knew we hadn’t been formally introduced, but I’d definitely consider kissing those lips. His gaze was intense, and it roamed my entire body, slowly, as if he were cataloging every detail for later when he was alone and naked in the shower. The thought of him naked, alone or otherwise, excited me. “No one special.” I fidgeted in my seat. “Old boyfriend.” “If you ask me, he’s a dumbass for letting you get away. You’re much prettier than candy.” Another blush heated my cheeks as I shook my head and responded, if only to keep him talking, “Ahh, but you haven’t seen this particular piece of candy.” “Don’t need to. He gave you up. In my book, that’s reason enough to achieve asshole status.” He winked and tipped his glass to mine. “But, thanks to his assholery, you’re here with me. So… to assholes.” Okay. He was definitely flirting.   


 

 

Review

 Let's get something clear, I'm not a fan of books with rockers as main characters, BUT there's always the exception to the rule and in this case are Rhonda James and her character Hawk.

Yes, Hawk is a rocker, he plays guitar with his band, and while he may have had wild nights, the guy has a heart of gold. He comes from a southern family who keeps him in check every step of the way. It's visiting his family that he meets Sophie. Sophie is an inspiring actress who went through a bit of a broken heart when a guy she thought was the one, showed his true colors. She goes back to visit her parents and while a enjoying a night in a bar in the middle of nowhere she meets Hawk. Like every couple they have their ups and downs, and then life happens. Careers become first priority and the past comes back to hunt them both, but through it all, Hawk and Sophie root for each other even if it means they can't be together.

Rhonda James' storytelling is enthralling and her characters are entertaining and full of life. their relationship is sweet, sexy and full of love and respect for each other. This is one of those books that you won't want it to end. And yes, the sensual rocker and the beautiful actress' end up having a beautiful HEA.

Review

 After the first book of this duet ended, I wanted to scream so loud, NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! But then I figured it was only a six week wait and I knew the authors weren't going to disappoint us with the rest of this story. And I was correct!

When I got the book in my Kindle, I started reading and didn't stop until it was over with, then I wanted more of Rush and Gia. In Rebel Heir I had a huge crush on Gia, she was strong and through it all she behaved like a mature woman, making the right decisions for her and the life ahead of her, she was funny and so full of life. Rebel Heart is without a doubt, one hundred percent a #RushCrush, that doesn't mean Gia disappointed, it meant Rush was the man I wanted next to me in the same situation.

While I understood the roller coaster of emotions both Rush and Gia were experiencing, it was Rush that took my heart. I felt so bad for him and all the things he had experienced throughout his life and while in the relationship with Gia. I put myself in his place and thought about what would I do if I was in his shoes, truth is decisions had to be made and it was getting over his past and his hang ups or start living the present forgiving the past.

I thought the ladies did a fantastic job developing these characters and their back stories. Rush and Gia were definitely complicated on their own, but together they had a lot of other situations to tackle.

These two authors really know how to play with their readers' emotions taking them on an unforgettable journey through the characters and the storyline, and this girl absolutely LOVE every second of it and looks forward to every book they write.

Get ready to swoon, cry a few tears, hate a little, and find hope and forgiveness through the poignant conclusion to the Rush Series Duet, Rebel Heart.

How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons: Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season. Check. Check. Check. I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss. Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town. Especially when he’s mean to you. Or so I thought. Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark. That was sort of how it all started with Rush. And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down. I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close. I wasn't supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me. As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated. All good things must come to an end, right? Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Cross Jacobs was a screw-up.

Everyone knew it, especially him, and the point was hammered home when Kallie Welch drove herself right out of his life. 

But, she’s back. 

Seeing Cross wasn’t on Kallie’s to-do list. She didn’t think she could avoid him forever but trying never hurt anyone. One minute she’s standing by herself and the next she’s accosted by a rich, velvety scent that could only belong to one man: Cross. 

At face value, he’s divine. All rugged and confident with a smile that melts her right where she’s standing. It doesn’t take long to find him to be charming, witty, and the owner of a few legitimate businesses. Not at all like the mischievous boy she left. 

He laughs and her heart flutters. With a touch of his hand, she’s dizzy. She’s fairly certain she’s going to die when he pulls her into an embrace and touches his lips to her forehead. 

It feels right. It feels so right. 

But is it?

Do You Like My Wiener?: a non-expert's no-nonsense guide to dating by Brenda Rothert

 

Book Blurb

With laugh-out-loud mishaps and heartfelt advice, bestselling romance author Brenda Rothert shows readers that while dating these days can be the worst, great men aren’t just fictional. Ladies, we’ve all been there…a good first date is wrapping up and we’re sure a second date is likely after a great goodnight kiss beside our car. He’s tall, funny and charming. FINALLY a good one. He asks to get in the car, which seems natural since it’s cold outside. And then, once inside, another kiss, and he exposes himself and asks us if we like his wiener. Wait, what? You haven’t been there? Guess that one only happened to me. What about the guy who spends most of a first date complaining bitterly about his ex-wife? The one with the guy who cops to his criminal record over dessert? Dating these days can leave a girl frustrated and disgusted. But fear not, I’m here to help. I’m a veteran dater, having spent a fair amount of time in the cheap-cologne scented trenches. And while I am admittedly not an expert, I can help you avoid my mistakes. I’ll show you how to prepare yourself for dating, how to spot the red flags and how to laugh off the misadventures you will inevitably have. And hopefully, how to avoid an awkward wiener encounter of your own.

Review

Dating in this date and age is like going into a war zone. Without a doubt you can come up close and personal with the good, the bad and the ugly, but if you are looking to start dating again, this book is very informative, especially when it comes to online dating sites.

One of the things I liked most about this book is that I felt as is I was getting advice from a friend, a confidant, someone you can be real with and won't judge your dating stories and your experiences. Ms. Rothert kept it as real as real could get and shows people that while putting yourself out there again is not always going to work the first time. That it's worth to get the experience necessary so when that special person finally appears into your life, you'll be ready to appreciate and enjoy every single second of that relationship.

This is not the kind of book we are used to get from this author, but it was truly and eye opener to read and learn a few things you not always think about when you start dating for the first time or after the end of a relationship. Wether you're in a relationship or looking to tackle the dating world looking for a soul mate, this is definitely a book you should read.
