An Excerpt from Marry Screw Kill …

“Harlow, Harlow,” he murmurs in reverence, as if my previous profession of love has brought him to his knees.

He takes my hand and brings it to his lips. His gentle kisses make me drift to a memory from a couple hours ago when Sin’s lips brushed over my knuckles. I felt everything then. My senses hummed. Now, I feel nothing.

I try to ease my hand from his, but his grip holds me in place. “Do you have any idea how long I’ve wanted to hear you say these words?” He places another kiss on my hand. “I forgive you for tonight.”

I do need his forgiveness, because his lips aren’t the ones I want on me. The ones I want belong to the man driving the car behind us. The fact that he’s James’ nephew makes me feel even more ashamed. What is wrong with me?

“You say you love me, but I need you to show me your love. Erase what I saw.” He releases my hand and I can guess what he wants: sex. It’s how he communicates.

“Unzip your dress and remove your bra,” he instructs, his voice rough.

I don’t want to upset him more, so I work myself out of my dress and bra. The air conditioning blows across my bare breasts and my nipples harden. I’m tempted to cover them with my hands, but he wouldn’t approve, so they stay at my sides.

Eyeing my exposed body, he licks his lips, pleased with what he sees. He reaches over to touch the side of my breast, cupping it with his hand. His thumb finds my nipple and strokes over it, pinching it hard. I inhale a sharp breath at the assaulting sensation.

“You’re utter perfection. Feel how hard you make me.” His fingers leave my breast and grip my hand. Placing my hand over his bulging erection and curling my fingers around him, I close my eyes.

“Now, unzip my pants and put me in your hot mouth.”

Review …

          

Liv Morris is a USA Today bestselling author for a good reason: her stories are simply stunning – and Marry Screw Kill (MSK) is no exception. In fact, it’s exceptional to the point that it’s hard to describe.  It’s edgy. It’s dark. It’s angsty. It’s a suspenseful psychological thriller that evolves into a powerful love story. It’s a coming of age story of a vulnerable young woman who discovers true love in the most unlikely of places. The love and passion she discovers empowers her, strengthens her, and allows her to break free of a deeply toxic relationship with a powerful and intimidating “lover.”  The characters are complex and very well-written. The story captures you from the first paragraph and keeps you hanging on every word until the end, hoping for a happy-ever-after all the way — fearing that it won’t happen as it should. I will tell you there is NO cliffhanger, and there is a surprise near the end that you can’t anticipate. It’s totally worth every suspenseful moment.

We all know that life can change, irreversibly, in an instant. Such is the case with the story’s young heroine, Harlow Masters. Arriving late one evening at the modest home she shares with her mother, she finds herself caught up in a horrific event – so traumatizing that after witnessing it, she loses consciousness. When she wakes up, her life changes again, in ways she could never have expected. She meets a man – Dr. James Elliott – who is determined to make her his own; to share her burden and heal her suffering. Or so she thinks.

She couldn’t be more wrong. But the longer she stays with him, the more she realizes there is truly evil behind his mask of affection. He has dark intentions. Taking advantage of her youth, innocence, and vulnerability, he slowly gains ultimate control over her. She is trapped in a life she never expected, never wanted, and has no idea if she has the power or the will to escape. She is engaged to a monster. Cut off from her best and only close friend, without a family, she senses the danger she’s in, but she rationalizes it, she doubts her own ability to make decisions … and ultimately, she resigns herself to her new fate.

Enter Sinclair Elliot, nephew of her fiancé, a young medical student who comes to visit when his uncle arranges a prestigious clerkship at The Clinic, a premier medical center in Rochester, NY.  Sinclair is immediately taken with Harlow, and it doesn’t take him long to see through his uncle’s dark, twisted soul. He realizes the danger that Harlow is in if she stays to become his wife – and takes it upon himself to help her see it for herself.

Harlow feels an immediate attraction – and deep connection – to the gentle, gorgeous Sinclair. She allows him to see her vulnerability – she can’t help but feel the contrast between his protectiveness and her fiancé’s greedy, jealous, narcissistic possessiveness. She knows she can’t have Sinclair, regardless of what her heart tells her. But he gives her hope. He ignites her strength, releases her inner resilience. With Sinclair and her best friend, Emma, Harlow finally sees a way out. But it’s treacherous, at best.

Sinclair seems too good to be true. Does the apple fall far enough from the tree that he could be truly different than his uncle? Could his care, concern, and affection be true – or is it another ruse? Can she trust him with her life, or will he lead her down another dark path, perhaps worse than before?  If and when she does escape from James, can she remain on her own, back in a broken-down apartment, barely making ends meet, always looking over her shoulder in fear that she’ll be found?

You’ll have to read this compelling story for yourself, and I recommend that you order it today. It will shock and surprise you, but it will also inspire you. In real life, “Marry Screw Kill” is a game. In MSK, it’s a dangerous one, well worth the emotional journey.

Photo and quote from Marry Screw Kill by Liv Morris

Excerpt

“When drowning, one grabs the first lifeline thrown without regard to  who holds the rope.”

James silences his blaring alarm clock in the early morning darkness of our bedroom. He falls back on the bed with a sigh as I face the wall, feigning sleep.
Not moving a muscle, I wait for what comes next. He’ll either get out of bed or climb on top of me. When I sense a slight movement from his side of the bed, I hold my breath.

“Come here, Harlow.” His hand curls around my waist and he rolls my body  over to face him. Morning sex it is. He pushes away the tangled bed hair covering  my eyes as I blink the sleep from them. “There’s my beautiful girl.” He kisses my forehead with a soft brush of his lips.

“Morning,” I reply in a sleepy, hoarse voice. He pulls down the twisted covers and exposes our naked bodies. His gaze travels over me, lingering on his favorite spots—ones he knows very well.

“What a sight to wake up to.” He hovers above my body and looks down at me with hooded eyes. “My day is always better when I start it inside you. Now, spread those long legs so I can fuck you.”

I part my legs and my day begins…

January & February Releases 

AbruptionJanuary 2nd:  ABRUPTION, by Riley Mackensie

I’m absolutely in love with this story, by favorite authors Riley Mackensie. I received the ARC and it’s my first “official” read of 2016. I’ll be posting a review tomorrow – but in the meantime, don’t wait — one-click it today.

Favorite author Emma Chase is releasing the third and final installment of her Legal Briefs series, APPEALED, on January 19th. I’ve read the ARC and it’s a perfect Appealedending to a great collection of steamy, tender, often hilarious stories about a group of attorneys that practice in Washington, DC. In true Emma Chase style, each hero is a keeper, and Brent Mason is no exception…he meets his match in Appealed, and his journey from player to lover to partner is well worth experiencing. Each book in the series may be read as a standalone, so read them in any order you like, although I think the stories build especially well when read in order. Review to follow on release day.

Synopsis:

When Brent Mason looks at Kennedy Randolph, he doesn’t see the awkward, sweet girl who grew up next door. He sees a self-assured, stunning woman…who wants to crush the most intimate – and prized – parts of his anatomy beneath the heels of her Christian Louboutins.
Brent has never let the loss of his leg in a childhood accident affect his ability to lead a fulfilling life. He sets high goals–and then he reaches them.
And now he has his sights set on Kennedy.
**
When Kennedy looks at Brent Mason, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue-worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell.
She’s not a lovesick social outcast anymore – she’s a DC prosecutor with a long winning streak behind her. Brent is the opposing attorney in her next case and she thinks it’s time to put him through a little hell of his own.
But things aren’t exactly working out that way.
Because every fiery exchange has her wondering if he’s as passionate in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom. Each argument and objection only makes him want her more. In the end, Brent and Kennedy may just find themselves in love…or in contempt of court.
APPEALED is a sexy, humorous romance about first crushes, second chances and the final verdict of the heart.

Grab a glass of wine, crawl between the sheets and warm up your winter nights with the latest installment of the PUCKED series, by Helena Hunting. This hockey-themed series of romantic comedies is at the top of everyone’s list, with some of the most outrageous – and drop-dead sexy, snarky characters you’ll ever meet. Again, you can read these out of order, but to really enjoy them, start at book one and don’t stop until you’re panting for the next in the series. Forever Pucked is coming later this spring!

Synopsis: 

Lily LeBlanc isn’t versed in the art of casual sex, but after seven years in an on-again, off-again relationship, she’s definitely willing to give it a shot. And who better to try it with than her best friend’s boyfriend’s best friend? What could possibly go wrong? Nothing at all.

NHL player, Randy Ballistic, lives up to his last name on the ice and in the bedroom. His best friend and teammate has recently given up the puck bunnies and traded them in for a real girlfriend. And she just happens to have a seriously feisty, extra-hot best friend on the rebound. Randy’s more than happy to be Lily’s spring board back into the dating scene.

Casual sex is only casual until those pesky things called emotions get involved. Once that happens, someone’s bound to gets pucked over.    Buy it on Amazon |  Add it to Goodreads

February 11th:  THE SCORE, by Elle Kennedy (Off Campus, #3)The Score

The Off-Campus series continues with THE SCORE, another sexy, funny, sweet new adult sports romance featuring hot hockey players, by Elle Kennedy. Each may be read as a standalone, so start anywhere, but don’t miss a single one. If you love relatable characters, a little bit of angst, a lot of humor, and some steamy, sexy college boys … look no further. I’ve got the ARC, and am loving the story. Will be posting a review closer to its release date. Stay tuned.

Synopsis:

He knows how to score, on and off the ice …

Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she’s going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands.

It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over …

Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition,girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to befriends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.

Photo of the cover of The Shadow, by Sylvain ReynardFebruary 2nd:  THE SHADOW (Florentine Series #2) by Sylvain Reynard

Sylvain Reynard is, hands-down, one of my top 3 favorite authors of all time. I can’t shorten the list to just one author, because all three of my favorites are so very different in their approach to storytelling that it seems unfair to say one is better than the others. The Florentine Series builds on the beauty of his infamous Gabriel series and takes it to an entirely new level, blending art, history, literature, music, poetry, mythology and romance exquisitely with the mystery and breath-taking suspense of the paranormal. Truly a unique and unforgettable combination. I have the ARC for The Shadow, and have read just enough to know that I won’t be able to put it down when I finally have the time to savor it. It’s not just a book, it’s an experience.  The final installment of the series is underway, and SR reports that he is already working on his next collection. I’d order it TODAY if I could.

Synopsis:

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Gabriel trilogy comes the hotly anticipated follow-up to The Raven, a sensual novel set in Florence featuring the dangerously intoxicating coupling of Raven and William…

Raven Wood’s vampyre prince has returned, pledging his love and promising justice for every wrong done to her. In the wake of their reunion, Raven is faced with a terrible decision—allow the Prince to wreak vengeance against the demons of her past, or persuade him to stay his hand. But there is far more at stake than Raven’s heart…

A shadow has fallen over the city of Florence. Ispettor Batelli will not rest until he uncovers Raven’s connection to the theft of the priceless art from the Uffizi Gallery. And while the Prince hunts a traitor who sabotages him at every turn, he finds himself the target of the vampyres’ mortal enemy.

As he wages a war on two fronts, he will need to keep his love for Raven secret, or risk exposing his greatest weakness…
