About MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY:

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don’t let the fact that I’m the leading pick in the Most Valuable Playboy charity auction fool you. These days, I’m only a player on the field. I’ve kept my pants zipped all season long — and it has been long — because nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the owner’s handsy-as-hell sister who seems dead set on winning more than a date with me at the auction.

Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.

She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me the next day that we’ve got to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract.

Violet says she’ll take one for the team and pretend to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport. And soon enough, I want this game with her to go into overtime. The problem is — I’ve been riding the bench for years.

How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?

*MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY is a brand new standalone sports romance written in the guy’s POV!*

Lion Eyes, a Sexy New Sports Romance by Casey Peeler – Release Blitz!

Release Day Banner for Lion Eyes by Casey Peeler

 

 

 

TYKE
It’s all I ever loved,
All I ever wanted.
Football is it for me.
The lights, the turf, the feel of the ball in my hands,
There’s nothing that means more to me.

But then, I meet Rilla James.
It’s a game changer right from the start.
Now, all I want is her,
Everything about her.

RILLA
It’s a love-hate relationship.
I love the excitement, the thrill of the game,
But despise everything it stands for.
The day the game took away someone in my life,
Everything changed,
For the better.
And I couldn’t be happier.

But then, I meet Tyke Jamison.
It’s a blitz right from the start.
Now, I’m questioning it all.
Maybe I could get used to life under the lights,
With him.

“You like?” she questions and I can’t hide my smile.

“I love it. Where did you get that?”  

“Let’s just say I’ve got connections,” she says as she wraps her arm through mine and gives me a quick kiss on the cheek. I pause, and look at her.

“You know what I really think about that jersey?”

She raises her eyebrows. “It looks way better on you than me,” I state.

“I beg to differ,” she says with a wink. “Now, let’s go meet your mom.”  

As we make our way to McDonald’s, Rilla is close but keeps a reserved distance from me. “You know you don’t have to keep so much distance between us. It’s my mom.”

“Um, exactly,” she states with a small laugh.

“Do you not recall how I met your dad the first time?”

“Oh yeah, wanna recreate it for her too?” She can’t be serious, so I call her bluff right when we’re in sight of Mom. I pause, turn to her, and pull her in for a kiss that has her breathless, but squirming to escape. She tries her best to pull back, but payback’s a bitch. When I pull away she smacks my shoulder and I burst out laughing while giving her a playful smack on the ass. “I’m gonna kill you,” she says between her teeth as she smiles at my mom. Her face is beet red, and I can’t help but chuckle.

As we cross the street, I can read my mom like a book. I’m about to get it.

“Tyke Douglas! If that’s how you act in public, Lord help what happens behind closed doors,” she says, and I can see that Rilla’s mouth is wide open.

“Guess it’s a good thing the doors never close due to that stupid rule,” I say and Mom shakes her head.
Casey Peeler grew up in North Carolina and still lives there with her husband and daughter.

Growing up Casey wasn’t an avid reader or writer, but after reading Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston during her senior year of high school, and multiple Nicholas Sparks’ novels, she found a hidden love and appreciation for reading.  That love ignited the passion for writing several years later, and her writing style combines real life scenarios with morals and values teenagers need in their daily lives.

When Casey isn’t writing, you can find her near a body of water listening to country music with a cold beverage and a great book.

“So much passion and intensity that you wouldn’t expect in a sports romance, but once again, Lauren Blakely BRINGS IT” ~Shayna Renee Spicy Reads

out-of-bounds-cover

The first rule of football–don’t screw with a streak.

My career is finally looking up, and I’m leading a new pro team down the field every Sunday. No way will I mess with that. But when I meet the most stunning and captivating woman I’ve ever seen, I tell myself one night will have to be enough.

But it’s not. And now I can’t get her out of my mind. Even when I’m playing. Even when I need to focus. Even when I’m on the hottest streak of my life.

And it turns out, she’s not just some random woman I met. She works for the team. My team.

 ***

I only have one goal this season–do my part as the team’s lawyer to keep them out of trouble. Help rebuild their reputation on and off the field. There’s no room for error and certainly no room for a secret tryst with a player . . . even if he’s the quarterback.

Right?

About Match Fit…

A Bad Boy Sports Romance

Brooke Sullivan and Dylan Pierce Story

He’s cocky, dirty, and demanding. He’s a walking wet dream.

He’s also mine. Or at least he’s pretending to be…

Brooke

Book Cover, Match Fit, by Amelie S. DuncanNotorious British bad boy footballer Dylan Pierce is scorching hot…and he knows it.

With a mouth as filthy as his reputation, linking myself with him could ruin my public image.

But show business is all about risk, and as a down-on-my-luck actress, this could be the break my career needs.

Dylan

Brooke Sullivan is my most difficult opponent yet.

Being seen with a good girl like her may give me a chance at Hollywood stardom, but I never expected to crave this feisty redhead.

I can’t lose my focus—I always keep my eye on the ball,

I’m always match-fit.

And winning her is the most important game I’ve ever played.

Meet Brady Luck…

hard luck coverSlugger. Hot shot. MVP.

I’ve been called it all.

I was the real deal, baby.

The diamond was my battlefield.

Women were the victory celebration.

My “Lucky” streak was a given.

On and off the field.

 

 

 

Then I slept with the wrong woman,

And she cursed me.

Literally.

Turned my game upside-down,

In the ballpark…and bedroom.

Now my team is paying the price.

 

My last hope is Cali Jones,

A smart and sexy physician assistant.

Her Midas touch may fix my swing,

Repair my equipment.

But will it be enough to cure my hard luck?

Photo quote from Hard Luck, by Liv Morris

EXCERPTS

“Come on, Cali, baby.” Oh great, here comes the sweet talk. “Just a quickie. No one will notice.”

He places a finger under my chin and I look up at him. Blue eyes twinkling, blond hair a sexy mess, a deadly smirk on a killer jawline—yeah, I’m shit at saying no to that.

“Okay,” I agree, but hold up three fingers. “You have three minutes.”

“Two,” he starts to undo his belt and the bulge at his crotch tells me two minutes might be enough. “Take off your panties, but leave everything else on.”

“I can’t believe we are doing this. Fucking in the Lincoln Bedroom is probably against the law or something.” I pull down my panties and Brady stuffs them in his pocket.

“I’ll give them back later. Now, get on the bed,” he says while whipping out his nine inches, and I grin knowing they are all mine.

*******

Baby photo & teaser from Hard Luck, by Liv Morris

“What do you want?” I breathe.

“I want you in my bed,” Brady murmurs back, as his fingers trail along my cheek, then he pulls the covers off me with a snap of his wrist.

“Brady, what are you doing?” I bring one hand up to my chest.

“Taking you to my bed,” he growls while lifting me up and throwing me over his shoulder Viking-style. “I hope you’re ready to be fucked senseless,” he says as we walk out of my bedroom and down the hallway toward his suite.

“Yes,” I say while exhaling. He’s taken my breath away and I can hardly speak.

“Good,” he responds on a growl, “because I plan on keeping you up all night.”

I close my eyes at the thought of opening myself up to him—all those glorious nine inches. I can’t wait.

********

Teaser with quote from Hard Luck by Liv MorrisI toss my bag onto the back floorboard and climb in after it. The second I’m in the car, an arm grabs me and pulls me to the backseat.

“What the fuck?” I gasp, and look up to see Brady holding on to me.

“Hey, baby,” he says, pulling me into his lap, which I end up straddling. And as usual, he’s as hard as a rock.

“You planned this, didn’t you?” I kiss the smile off his face knowing this was his idea to get me alone before the game.

“I wanted a quickie on the way to the studio. The limo is closed off and Stuart is none the wiser.”

“Problem is, Stuart is too wise. He’ll know you’re fucking me.” I continue to kiss his jawline and begin to take off his belt buckle. “We better hurry.”

“Fuck yeah,” he whistles as he pulls my dress down to reveal a shear lace strapless bra. He pulls my breasts out of each cup and sucks a nipple into his eager mouth.

“Turn up the radio. You know how I love to scream.” I think Brady’s nine inches has flipped my nympho switch. I’ve never come on dick alone until him.

I ease off Brady’s lap and take his cock into my mouth. We only have a few minutes before we arrive at the studio and I can’t disappoint my favorite appendage.

An interview with Megan Lowe
by Hot Tree Promotions
1. Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a Journalism graduate who tried for years to get a job in that field before I finally gave up. I’ve been writing stories since I was a kid, even going so far as to make my own newsletter, so writing has always been a thing for me. I love to travel, go to rock concerts and sporting events, mostly by myself, although that isn’t my first choice. I’m an only child who is currently battling for control of the house with my sixteen-year-old tortoiseshell cat.
2. What inspired you to write your first book?
I’d been reading, a lot, and as a result I had made a list of what I liked and what I would do if I was writing my own book. I’d had a go at a few before and they were rubbish (and in a different genre than contemporary romance) but I thought, maybe I should give this another go. I’d noticed a real glut of sports romances with cars or anything with a motor and I love bikes (I don’t ride because I’m too chicken but I would love to!), and the guys who ride them are hot, so I thought this might be a good place to start and it snowballed from there.
3. How did you come up with the title of Breaking the Cycle?
I didn’t name the book until I was about halfway through which is how I usually work. I have a hard time naming books and characters. But I was writing and it just kind of came to me, it was a phrase that kept coming up. I think it fits for two reasons. 1, is that Bria is breaking the cycle of bad luck the Ryans have and 2, is that it kind of belies the fact that Hunter wants to actually break the Ryans, their bikes and everything they love.
4. Describe your main character in five words.
Tough, loving, determined, family-orientated. As a bonus, that works for both Bria and Reed!
5. What was one of the most surprising things you learned in writing Breaking the Cycle?
This came more in the editing stage after discussions with my editor and publisher, and that was that Australian literature is much like Australia itself. The world has a very cliqued view of Australia and anything we produce, in terms of books or film, but Australia is far from what the world thinks we are. I realised that I myself shared that bias despite having read some contemporary Australian romance novels. I realised that my novel didn’t have to follow that cliqued path and that I can forge the way and help change the world’s view of us and our art.
6. Have you ever done anything strange or weird in the name of research?
No, but I have spent a hell of a lot of money on it! I recently returned home after a five week European holiday where I made a side trip to Jerez de la Frontera, a town in the Andalusian region of Spain, to go to the MotoGP race staged there. It was an amazing experience and worth every penny, which it did cost a lot!
7. How long does it take you to write a book?
I started Breaking the Cycle then stopped as I gave up my study after some family members moved in with us. I then went on a month holiday to China where I lugged my notebooks (I handwrite) around China and Hong Kong, before seriously sitting down and pumping it out. So, from start to finish BTC took me about six months all told, but if you took out the time I didn’t write, probably a month or two. My process is a bit drawn out because as I said, I handwrite which means after I finish I then have to type everything up. I would get someone to help me with this because I’m not the fastest typist but I edit as I type so that doesn’t work. Then when I edit I need have the words on a page in front of me and handwrite my edits. It’s also quite a nerve-wracking process because what happens if the house burns down? * touch wood * But, it’s how I work so what can you do, besides invest in a fire extinguisher?
8. Can you share a little of your current work with us?
It’s book 2 in the Rocking Racers series, Cole and Knley’s book, titled, at the moment, Where you’d rather be. I’d started to come up with the plot for this one while I was still writing BTC and now I’m getting into it. Book 3 is going to be Mav’s book and at the moment he’s being quite vocal which is slightly inconvenient. His book is going to take place after Cole and Knley and I’m still not sure of everything that’s going to happen there, but I’m taking note of what he has to say which I’m liking quite a bit actually.
9. What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
I work nights, as in a job that gives me a regular wage, which works out well for my writing. It does mean I keep weird hours though, but when dealing with America it’s all good! My day usually sees me write for about five hours, some times more, some times less, before looking after my family and then going to work. On more than one occasion my writing life takes over my other job and I find myself having to stop and write down what my characters are telling me, but don’t tell my managers that!
10. Do you have any writing rituals?
Nothing specific other than handwriting. I have certain pens I like but I think everyone is like that. I also have a heap of empty notebooks, it’s kind of my obsession, but no, no rituals. I do have a lucky pooh bear that sits on my desk though.
11. What book are you reading now?
At the moment I’m reading Until June by Aurora Rose Reynolds but I’m dying for Cambria Hebert’s new book, #Swag. I absolutely adore the Hashtag and Gearshark series. I’m also hanging out for L.P. Maxa’s Play Softly in her Devil’s Share series. Dash and Lexi are some of my favourites and I love the way she writes her male leads.
12. Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Just thank you! Thank you so much for reading Breaking the Cycle and hopefully, loving it! And if you did love it, would you consider leaving a review? The more reviews it gets the more Amazon will promote it, oh, and tell all your friends!
Random Questions:
 
What’s in your fridge right now?
Flavoured water, chocolate, left over dinner from the other night and bananas.
What song do you sing at the top of your voice every time you hear it?
Anything by my favourite bands, and there’s a lot, but every single time? I like it heavy by Halestorm. I would happily turn for Lzzy Hale!
Other than writing, what special or unusual talent(s) do you have?
At the moment I’m forgetting everything I wanted to tell one of my friends at work, which I happen to think is a talent! I can make a mean baked cheesecake but really, I’m not that talented!
Where did you last go on holiday?
Haha, okay, bear with me. I started off in London before visiting family in Liverpool and Manchester before moving onto Lisbon, Jerez de la Frontera, Madrid, Barcelona, Pau, Nice, and Venice before going back to London. I want to go back to America next.
If feral aliens attacked your house and they were zapping your home with their Über super bombs, what five items would you save?
I’m assuming my family are safe, so I’d say:
  1. my grandparent’s ashes and my grandmother’s rings
  2. photos of my trips overseas
  3. my lucky pooh bear
  4. my current wip, duh!
  5. my original care bear. It used to belong to my cousin before she gave it to me when I was about three or four, so it’s older than I am (which isn’t that old at all!). I’ve had it a long time, so yeah, I’d save him too!
If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
I’m really not that interesting and as we know I hate naming things so maybe they should focus less on me and more on themselves and write a book from their own imagination!
