Cover Reveal: Sex, Not Love: Vi Keeland




SEX, NOT LOVE

#1 New York Times Bestselling Author 
Vi Keeland 

(A standalone contemporary romance novel)

Release date 1/15/2018
My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards. 

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction. 

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems. 

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.

It’s just sex, not love.

But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

Review Blitz: Defiant Queen: Meghan March


Defiant Queen  (Mount Trilogy #2)
Meghan March
Add to Goodreads
Buy Amazon US | Amazon UK | iBooks | BN | Kobo
Release Date November 14, 2017

    
The Mount Trilogy continues with

Defiant Queen...

I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.

I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment?

They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.

But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.

I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.

I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.

But he has other plans . . .

Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire.


Lachlan Mount is all about power, money, and control. People fear him. He is intimidating and known to be ruthless. Nothing usually phases him. But Keira Kilgore is testing that. She pushes him to his boundaries. She is becoming his addiction and a distraction. It all started with a power play and a debt, but it is becoming more. And their relationship could threaten Mount's perfectly controlled life and world order. 

Keira found herself indebted to Mount and was basically at his mercy. And he knew just what he wanted from her initially. She pushes against the bars in her guilded cage. She is defiant, outspoken, rebellious, and strong-willed. But the more time she is around Mount, the more he is able to use her own body against her. She may fight him in almost every aspect of life, but in the bedroom he can bring her body to heal like no one else.

This follows them as their initial deal  and situation continues to evolve and change. It seems to keep evolving as they both begin to have realizations and develop more of an attachment. I really enjoyed getting to understand more about Mount. I feel like this book humanizes him more, and I honestly like him even though he is an anti-hero with a deadly and dangerous personality. There is an underlying need in him that Keira seems to pull out of him. I loved seeing under his layers and him off balance at times. And Keira just pushes and challenges him like no other. He pushes back. Each win some and lose some. She hates that she wants him. He does not want to crave her. But she makes him want to break some of his longstanding rules. 

He might be able to satisfy her physically, but what about emotionally? Mount is supposed to be a man void of emotions and attachments, And if she gives in does she lose herself or her independence?

His reach not only involves her daily personal life, but also begins extending into her business and other areas of her life. She is as devoted to her work as he is to his, but also fiercely independent and prideful.

This handles the cliffhanger of the first book, and brings us all the way to another exciting ending that made me want to have book three right away. It has some twists, surprises, and a fun cameo.

I can't wait to see what happens next and see where this couple goes in the last book. They've got explosive chemistry and bedroom compatibility. 
They've got a connection. They've got power struggles. But I really think their personalities and skills also give them the potential to be a real power couple, and to have an intense bond that neither ever thought they would be find. This series has me totally captivated and invested in these two. 

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review. 
Keira is with Mount as a payment for a debt. She is reeling from her discovery at the end of Ruthless King, and Mount isn’t much happier about what she learned. Though she is off balance, and out of her element, she is determined to show no weakness to the man whose name alone sends people running. She may be his plaything, but she is going to fight hard to keep herself while under his control.

I loved the character development through this book. Typically the middle of a trilogy is my least favorite part, but this one kept moving and gave so much information about both Keira and Mount that it didn’t feel like that middle piece that I usually tolerate between the beginning and ending installments of trilogies. I loved the pieces of Mount that Kiera starts to see (and as readers we get more than even she knows).

They are fiery together, particularly as Keira continues to challenge Mount privately and publicly, searching for a weakness or limit to his control. There is no question that they have physical chemistry, but the deeper Keira finds herself into her time with Mount, the harder it becomes to keep herself from losing herself in his games.

Mount is so good at manipulating a situation, it is difficult for Keira to know when he is being genuine and when she is falling into his traps. He has contacts everywhere and even as she works to further her own goals, she can’t help but wonder if she is working under her own power or through his influence.

The direction these two head and the vulnerability that they are learning to give the other promises a final book that is full of push, pull, and drama. I can’t wait for the third and final installment to find how they will continue to push each other as they work through their arrangement. There are more struggles to come, I’m sure, including what exactly everything means between them, but I am waiting at the edge of my seat to jump back into their world.

She should’ve been more careful.

What’s mine, I keep, and that includes Keira Kilgore.

It’s no longer enough to have her in my debt. No longer enough to own her body.

She can try to resist, but I’ll never give her up.

Nothing will keep us apart.

Not her. Not my enemies. No one.

Her debt will only be paid one way—with her heart.

Release Review: Neutral Zone: Catherine Gayle

Neutral Zone (Portland Storm #11.5)

Buy Amazon | B&N | iTunes | Kobo
Release Date November 16, 2017

M/M contemporary hockey romance

Being stuck in the Neutral Zone is no way to live…

Portland Storm defenseman Cole Paxton never intended to be the poster boy for gay hockey players. Whether intended or not, that’s exactly what he’s become—ever since innocently attempting to deflect the attention away from another teammate during the playoffs. One little admission, and now his private life is making headlines.

Luke Weber would love the chance to bask in Cole’s limelight. After all, he’s never had the pro hockey career he envisioned. If he’d stayed in the closet, maybe that spotlight would have been his. He’ll never know the truth, now that the doors to his dream career have been slammed shut.

With everything out in the open, there’s no denying the attraction they feel for each other. Cole and Luke want to move forward—together. But to do so, they’ll each have to let go of the lives they’d imagined for themselves. Can two strong men relinquish the fantasies of their futures to make their real dreams come true? 
We have seen Luke Weber and Cole Paxton in the background of other books. Luke is the son of Webs, the Coach for the Portland Storm and the brother of Katie and Dani who have married members of the Storm.

Luke is fresh out of college and looking for his own NHL dreams to come true on his own merit, but unfortunately despite his hard work and determination he has not been picked up by a team. He thinks it might be because he came out in his Senior year of college. He is anxious, frustrated, angry, and losing hope.

Colesy is older, more established, and did not intend to come out while still playing professionally, but to take the heat of Ghost during a tense situation, he blurted it out to the press. So now everyone knows. He is quiet, private, and shies away from media attention usually.  He is kind, thoughtful, and supportive of those around him. He just wants to play and live a quiet life. 

Luke has a supportive, loving, and sometimes nosy and interfering family. Colesy's was not so supportive of his choices. Luke has had a bit of a crush on Cole for a while, but at the same time is envious of his success and ability to be who he is and play professional hockey. Cole takes Luke under his wing to try to help him, but the more time they spend together, the more they begin to feel a pull. But if Luke achieves his dream of getting chosen for a team then that would mean leaving and if he pursues something with Cole he would more than likely have to give up hockey. And Cole never intended to have a relationship until he retired, and doing so would put them right into the spotlight. 

Pursuing a relationship could have consequences for them. So these two men have to figure out what they need and want, priorities, options, and deal with any fall out from those around them and the media. I loved getting all the cameos from so many of the Storm family. This group is so much fun and have such big personalities. 

This is a novella told in dual points of view and I honestly wish it was longer. I would have liked to get more depth, drama,  conflict, and dig more into the emotional and physical connection with these two since I really liked them. It was fast, sweet, sexy, and humorous. It had good messages about being true to yourself, developing connections, family, and embracing unexpected life changes.

I wish that athletes and others did not have to struggle so much with coming out, but unfortunately it still is a big deal especially in professional sports, so I am glad that she brought us a M/M story in this beloved series.
