Cover Reveal- Emma Hart

Emma Hart is kicking some major ass in writing right now. We've both had the pleasure for Beta Reading, Never Forget... LOVED it! It was Emma's debut novel into the NA scene and now she has a new one! SO EXCITING! Seriously we love the way she writes and love the fact that she is popping out books left and right. The best thing is the books are absolutely AMAZING! Seriously envy the way she can write a story as fast as she can, not to mention the amazing emotion that is put into each book. 

Make sure you add it to 

So you probably want us to stop talking right? Yeah, yeah, girls get on with the awesome cover right?!*sighs* fine are your ready????







His challenge? Make her fall in love with him.
Her challenge? Play the player.
Until life changes the rules of the game.

Maddie Stevens hated Braden Carter on sight. Arrogant, egotistical, and the playboy of the University of California, Berkeley, he's everything her brother Pearce has taught her to despise. So why, when the girls challenge her to play the player, doesn't she say no? She doesn't know either.
Braden wanted fiery little Maddie the second he laid eyes on her - and he'd do anything to have her, hence why he's agreed to make her fall in love with him. After all, it's the only way he'll get what he wants. Sex.

But, as Braden discovers, there's more to the girl from Brooklyn than he ever imagined - and he can't help but care about the broken girl behind those pretty green eyes.

Maddie finds Braden isn't just a walking erection - he actually has feelings. He can be sweet, funny and his good looks don't exactly hurt. That means trouble - but when her brother Pearce turns up in Berkeley begging for her help, she realises Braden and Pearce aren't so alike anymore.
And maybe, just maybe, they're exactly what each other needs.

He slides one of his arms around me and pulls me to him so my back is flush against his chest, both of our arms wrapping my stomach. “See? I've got you. It's fine, Angel.”
“This is crazy. Never again is Megan organizing a date.”
“Yeah, she got a good one with this.” He laughs again and I shake my head.
“No, no, she didn't. This is terrible.”
“Really? I would have thought that being up against me would be a good thing.”
“Maybe it would be if I could actually focus on the fact I'm pressed against your body.”
“Well, then.” He spins so he's in front of me, skating backwards.
“Braden, you can't see where we're going!”
“That's your job.”
“Oh my god.” I try looking over his shoulder but I can't. He's too tall, dammit. “You're too tall!”
“Then you just have to trust me.” His lips take mine in a searing kiss and I gasp inwardly, grabbing hold of him tightly. His hands find my waist and pull my hips against him, our speed slowing slightly. He goes to deepen the kiss, his tongue tracing between my lips, and I nip his bottom lip before I open to him. My fingers tangle in his hair as our tongues meet, starting an intricate dance of want.
For a second, I forget the game. I forget the fake relationship. I forget the fact I'm on roller-skates and Braden isn't-
“Oomph!” Braden grunts, hitting the floor. I laugh, rolling off him.
“I told you we didn't know where we were going!” I say through my laughter, blades of grass tickling my ears.
“Hey.” He rolls towards me, propping himself up on his elbow. His hair flops down towards my face, casting little shadows over us. “I totally knew where we were going until you distracted me.”
I distracted you? Oh no, mister. You kissed me, not the other way around.”
“And I didn't hear any complaints about that.”
“Maybe that's because there weren't any.”
“Oh, yeah?”
“Then let's try again.”

Never Forget Tour-Interview with Alec

A city girl.
A small town boy.
A summer they'll never forget.
Spending the summer at her Grammy's in Lilac Bay, Devon, is city girl Alexis 'Lexy' Edwards idea of hell. That is, until she reconnects with her childhood friend, Jen, and meets Alec Johnson.
Alec is the kind of guy Lexy knows she needs to stay away from. He's the village flirt, ridiculously hot and very dangerous to her self control. But there's a problem – she can't seem to keep him out, even though she knows he'll break her heart.
As Alec slowly strips away Lexy's defenses and the two embark on a summer romance she never wanted, their feelings grow to more than either expected. But nothing lasts forever, and reality intrudes.
As her world is shaken to it's core, Lexy's self made prediction comes true when she discovers she's spent six weeks surrounded by secrets. Kept out by her family and the only guy she's ever trusted, she falls apart.
And when Grammy tells her that 'you might not end up where you wanted to be, but you'll always end up where you're meant to be,' she has to figure out if her meant to be is back home in London, or if it's been in Devon the whole time.

*fans self* Thank you Alec for sitting down with us today! Promise not to keep you long. I know Lexy is waiting. I'm Christina with CBC’’s Naughty & Nice, Are you excited for this interview?

Of course. Look who's interviewing me. *wink*  Oh MY!!

What was the first thought that went through your mind when you heard Lexy was coming to stay with Vi?

Honestly? I didn't really care that much. My plan was to just surf the summer out, drink too much and have a fair bit of sex. Lexy was never in the plan because she was Vi's granddaughter.

So when you saw her for the first time what was the first word that popped into your head?

Holy shit. Wait, that's two words. That still counts, right? HAHA Yes that still counts!

Hanging out with Jen and Carl, and them dating, did you always feel the odd man out?

Not really. In a town like Lilac Bay, you're best friends with pretty much everyone. I've known Jen and Carl since we were small. I always assumed they'd end up together. He kinda soothes her crazy, which is a good thing.

What made you want to prove yourself to Lexy so bad? Was it her or were you ready to be more serious?

Both - I knew she was different than the usual girls I hung out with. There was something about her that made me wanna know her more, and when I did, I decided I was definitely ready to be serious with her.

I must say, that surfing lesson was hot. What was your favourite part of it?

Holding her up against me, of course. That wetsuit was very revealing, after all. (I'd also love to tell you it was her face when she fell off the board, but she's got a good right hook.)

How did it feel to bring Lexy to meet your mom? I mean that's a big deal to a guy right?

A massive deal. I'd never taken a girl home, but like I said, I just knew she was it. That and I knew Mum would tell her she was the first girl I'd taken home. That had to go some way in convincing her I was serious, but I loved seeing her with Mum.

What is your favorite memory, when it came to getting Lexy to fall in love with you? Okay pick 2. And when did you know you were falling hard for her?

Really? Umm, okay, crap. I guess its her birthday, on the beach at Ilfracombe - our first kiss. Second is probably at the wedding when I sang to her. That sealed the deal, and I can't even sing.

I knew I was falling hard pretty much instantly. It's that sassy mouth. It's damn hot.

So Lexy's brother Bing is quite the funny guy. What do you think of him? Did he intimidate you with the 'big brother' talk?

Bing is.. Uh, how to describe him without getting my legs broken? A lad, is probably all I can say. And nah, he didn't intimidate me. I was waiting for it.

Was it hard for you not to tell Lexy about Vi's condition?

In some ways yes. I hated the fact she was so open with me yet I held that secret. But it wasn't my secret to tell. In other ways it wasn't because I loved seeing her so happy. I knew it would break her, and I didn't want to be the one who had to tell her that.

When did you decide that you were going to follow Lexy to school?  And what solidified that decision?

When we were having the 'if you could go anywhere' conversation on the beach. My real answer would be if I could go anywhere, it would be wherever she is. What solidified my decision? The fact – that for some crazy reason – I'm head over damn heels in love with her.

All I can say is I am so happy for you guys and wish you the best for the future.  Thank you so much for sitting down with me and answering a few questions.  Tell Lexy Hi for me.

WOW that was an awesome interview! I hope you all read the book and enjoy Alec as much as we did!

What can I say about Emma Hart? Well not enough to cover and write a review at the same time.  But I am privileged to know this awesome British lovely! We became friends through a fun BOND. Haha yes a play on words here.  I was able to watch as Never Forget came to form as she worked on it.  It was fun listening to her brainstorm and listening to her talk things through.  Emma has more talent in her little finger than I have in my brain.  I really mean that.  Her way of forming a story and writing such beautiful scenes is, awe inspiring.  I truly wish I was able to tell a story like she has.  Now let’s get down to Never Forget. 

As I beta read this story I was enthralled instantly.  It took me a day to read it and I cried in a few places.  Lexy is a girl from London who has come to Devon to visit her grandmother “Grammy” for the summer.  She hasn’t been there for a few years, and now at 17 she thinks this will be the most boring summer ever.  That is until she sees a cute boy out the window.  She is determined not to get into a relationship with him or have any boy at all! But a friendship and some flirting won’t hurt much at all right? Lexy reconnects with Jen, a real firecracker of a friend she knew from her recent stays with Grammy.  Jen’s boyfriend is best friends with this BOY (name coming really).  So Lexy is pretty much around him all the time.  Yes, yes, this boy has a name I am getting to that.  

ALEC…… Wow what can I say about Alec?  He is known as a player and is not serious when it comes to girls. He has been helping out Lexy’s Grammy with some yard work and happens to be there the day she arrives.  Coincidence much?  Lexy gets to go to the beach and hang out with Jen and yes, Alec is there too.  There are many instances where they are all in a group.  Let’s just say they BOTH feel the attraction. And they way Emma writes this, well I felt it too. Who wouldn’t be attracted to this description: “He leans against his surfboard and flicks his hair out of his eyes, grinning”.  Surfer boy, yep, he’s a cutie.  Plus HE HAS DIMPLES!!! *waits for all the girls to stop swooning*.   Let me just tell you the conversations between Lexy and Alec have me all swoony and tension filled.  Sometimes I was like KISS ALREADY!!! (It happens, eventually) I want to tell you all but seriously I would rob you of the chance to experience it for yourself. Wait till you hear WHY Alec calls Lexy a princess.  YOU WILL SWOON. Alec is bound and determined to get Lexy to trust him and to fall for him.  He has his work cut out for him because she is determined not to just have a summer romance.  Can he do it?  Pshhhhhh I know he can.  Every touch they have and every conversation is like fire on the page! 

MY ABSOULTE FAVORITE SCENE is when Alec takes Lexy Surfing. Let’s say the conversation they have is….. Ya…. *faints* Oh sorry I was remembering the absolute best part in the book!  So before I tell you the WHOLE book, Alec plans something special for Lexy’s birthday and it is still swoon worthy.  OH have you gotten my point yet? 1. Alec is swoon worthy and 2. HE HAS DIMPLES.  And the sexy scene between them should melt your E-reader!   Alec is bound and determined to follow Lexy anywhere. THIS is IT for him. *collective awww* 

The cast of Characters in this book just makes you want to go to Lilac Bay and hang with everyone.  Bing, Lexy’s brother is not only hilariously annoying at times, but he sounds like a total hottie in his own right.  Jen, well Jen is how I picture Emma sometimes, or myself. Okay you will see sometimes we all have a little Jen in us.  Carl is sweet.  Grammy, now who wouldn’t LOVE this lady?!!  She hangs BING’s UNDERWEAR up for the town to see. She’s hilarious.  
Get the tissues towards the end though…. Grammy is ill.  Not only does Lexy’s Family not tell her, Alec knows.  Grammy asked him NOT to say.  What is wrong with her?  And Can Lexy get past this and understand and remember how much Alec loves her? Will her broken heart be mended? Grammy talks with her.  I love her. She is a WISE WISE woman!  Get those tissues, because seriously you will need them. But know, It’s all okay *winks* 

Emma Hart has written a hot, sexy, emotional filled book that will keep you captivated from the start to the finish.  You won’t want to leave Lilac Bay.  In fact I have gone back a few more times.  I recommend you go get Never Forget.  You Definitely WON’T forget these characters anytime soon.
