3:AM KISSES Blog Tour

3:AM KISSES Synopsis:
Baya Brighton is looking forward to her first year at Whitney Briggs University, new friends, dorm life, and finally being close to her brother again. Love is the last thing on the list, but when Baya meets her brother’s roommate she begins to have thoughts and feelings that make even her blush.

Bryson Edwards has a secret he prefers buried in the past and long forgotten. He prefers loose girls, fast cars, and long nights working at the string of bars his family owns. When his roommate’s sister shows up on the scene, she’s far too innocent and sweet for him but he can’t shake Baya out of his mind and worse, it looks like she’s seeping into his heart as well.

Baya seems determined to show her brother she’s not a little kid and equally determined to use Bryson’s body to prove her point. It’s been made pretty clear that Baya is off limits to Bryson but their undeniable sparks explode into a whole lot more than just a few 3:AM KISSES.
 I cannot express how much I adore Addison Moore. I haven’t had the chance to read through all of her YA Celestral Series but they are for sure on my list and should be on yours. I did however read Someone to Love and I did love it. It was even more amazing after I had the chance to meet her at UtopYA Con and at the Naughty Mafia. Addison is one of the sweetest ever! But you don’t want to hear me fan girling right?

So 3:AM Kisses…. Oh. My. God. Can I please have a Bryson? No seriously I want him in the worse kind of way! Before I get hooked on Bryson, because you totally would if you haven’t already... I should start at the beginning. Baya, Love her unique name BTW, well Baya is off to college and is looking to shed the ‘good girl’ persona. Can’t say that I blame her. Once tragedy struck her family’s life, her big brother Cole took it upon himself to make sure she remained innocent. Put her in the ‘right’ crowd, so when she went off to college she wanted to finally live life. Experience everything everyone else was experiencing. Yes, that meant sex. But I love the way Addison wrote Baya. Baya was used to following whatever her brother said, but when she ran into Bryson and learned of her brothers ‘true’ ways, she decided enough was enough. Bryson. Oh how I love Bryson, let me count the ways! You can tell from the beginning they had this undeniable attraction to each other, but the questioned remained… would they act on it?

Bryson. I love this character so much, so much in fact that I can almost say he’s my favorite male POV that I’ve read. Addison wrote him perfectly. You can tell he had a history, something that hurt him deeply, and it was something that haunted him. What was his choice of distraction? Women, and loads of them. That is until Baya comes into the picture. He tries to fight it, he believe she’s too good for him, but he starts to hope. Spending time with her completely changes everything and I love watching him fall a little more each time. She’s different and he’s not letting go. He lets Baya in, lets her see the real Bryson hiding underneath the womanizing ways he’s hidden behind.

I love seeing them grow. Especially Baya coming into herself and Bryson accepting the fact that he’s worthy of love and loving in return. For once I was able to read a book that I didn’t feel like there was unnecessary drama or split ups because the characters past got in the way. Don’t get me wrong there is a character that stirs the pot, you won’t like her, I didn’t. Addison managed to write a romance that I wish I had, a romance that not everyone gets to have, but a few lucky people know what its like. 3:AM Kisses is definitely a book I’ll be rereading because it’s that amazing. I’m sure you’re wondering if there is sex in the book, am I right? I can tell you there is but its not overly descriptive and trash. It’s absolutely perfect and breathtaking. Addison Moore has a way with words and definitely held my attention from the moment I began the book till I finished. I didn’t put the book down at all, it was impossible. I had to know what was going on with Bryson. I had to know if Baya would stand up to her brother. I had to know if Baya and Bryson made it through it all. I HAD TO KNOW and that’s what makes a book in my eyes. So if you haven’t picked up your copy yet, you need to get on that! So go one-click it right now!
<3 Dani

Meeting Addison Moore in person and then knowing this book was coming out created anticipation for me.   Then when I got the book I was excited to start.  It captured me from page one.  In fact is broke me out of my reading funk.  3:AM Kisses was such a sweet story that I really want to go back and spend time with Baya and Bryron again.

Baya Brighton has moved to college, where her brother is.  First day on campus and her top falls down, and yes someone notices.  His name is Bryson Edwards.  This whole interaction is was hooked me! I knew they would be at least friends.  Bryson show's Baya to her room and when she walks in she learns her roommate is well, other wise engaged in sex.  Baya tells Bryson her brothers name, and he says he knows him........ he takes her to him and well..... Bryson just happens to be Baya's brothers roommate.  Bryson really likes Baya and knows nothing can happen because of her brother.  

Bryson can't seem to stay away from Baya. He doesn't want any other guy to have her.  He takes her to one of his family's bars and get's her a job.  Baya REALLY likes Bryson, she wants him, no matter what her brother, the guy who sexes his way through the girls at school, says.  Baya knows that Bryson  likes to bed girls, and Bryson wants to prove to Baya that he doesn't want that anymore.  When Baya moves in with her brother and Bryson because of her SEX CRAZED roommate, will their fire stir?  

And working with Bryson brings them closer together.  When a first kiss is shared at 3:AM they grow closer.  These 3:AM kisses are shared many times.  Bryson is set on loving Baya and moving past his past.  Baya wants to hang on to Bryson no matter what.  When he invites her to meet his family on a weekend away, how close will they get? What happens when Baya tells her brother about them? AND What is Bryson not telling her about his past? 

There are a few other characters in this book that I loved! Baya's friends, Love them.  They provide humor in this book. :) 

Overall I am in TOTAL Love with this story! I want more of their 3:AM Kisses and Just more of Baya and Bryson.

Maven/Nemesis Promo Post - Starla Hutchon

Maven & Nemesis Blog Tour
Author: Starla Huchton

Maven (The Endure series, book 1)
By S.A. Huchton
Genre: New Adult Sci-Fi Romance
"How far would you go for love?

Since losing her parents at 14, young prodigy Dr. Lydia Ashley has focused on one thing: an appointment on the Deep Water Research Command Endure. Now 21, she’s about to realize that dream, but nothing is how she imagined it would be. Her transitional sponsor forgets her, her new lab is in complete chaos, and, as if that weren’t enough, she’s about to discover something so horrific it could potentially destroy all life on the planet. 

Daniel Brewer, a noted playboy and genius in his own right, may be exactly what she needs… Or he may make everything worse.

Has she finally found a puzzle she can’t solve?"


"Close your eyes," he said before opening the doors.
"Just do it." He smiled reassuringly.
Lydia sighed and shut her eyes. Daniel pressed his thumb to the scanner and the large bay doors parted. At her back, he guided her forward by the shoulders until she was a few feet from the stairs. Then he stepped around her. He wanted to see her reaction.
"Okay, you can look."
Her dark eyes opened, then widened at the sight before her. "Can I go up?" she asked.
Daniel nodded. After seeing her panicked state earlier, he thought she could probably use a distraction. Lydia raced up the six steps to the edge of the tank. Three sleek, gray heads popped above the surface to greet her. Two others hung back, the meeker of the pod, waiting for the verdict from the more outgoing ones.
"This is Gracie, the mother hen of our resident dolphin pod. You can recognize her by the heart-shaped spot between her eyes."
Lydia's grin was a mile wide. "Hello, Gracie. Nice to meet you." She reached out and touched the nearest dolphin. It rose to meet her, answering her greeting with a click and a whistle.
"This is Dora, Gracie's oldest daughter. She has an indentation on the top of her dorsal fin due to a run in with a shark. We almost lost her that time. She's a bit too friendly for her own good."
"Fozi is the youngest of the pod, a male. He's smaller than the others, but twice as loud." Daniel stroked the top of the dolphin's melon as he swam by.
"Back there are Lucinda and Talulah, impossibly rare twin girls. In the case of dolphin twins, one of them is usually stillborn or dies soon after birth. Those two are fighters, and stick together like nothing I've seen, but they also shy away from strangers."
Lydia looked elated. "They're beautiful. I've been wanting to see them since I got here. I was starting to think they were avoiding me."
"Not at all," Daniel said. "At this time of year they spend more time out than in."
"I wish we had one of their tubes running through the lab," she said. "They'd be a welcome sight every now and again."
"I know what you mean. I'd love to have them in the Tech Center too." He laughed as Gracie nudged her way in for another one of Lydia's pats. "She likes you. They aren't always so welcoming."
"Have you been successful in teaching them hand signals?"
He nodded. "Absolutely. The twins were pretty stubborn about it, but even they know twenty or more different signs. Daniel made two pumping motions with his right index finger. As Lydia reached out to touch Dora, she was met with a light spray of water from her blowhole. Daniel couldn't help but laugh loudly as she gasped in shock. 
"Very funny," she said, wiping saltwater off of her face.
Daniel tossed her a towel hanging from a rack on the wall. "Just wanted to prove a point." He winked.
"Mission accomplished," she said through the terrycloth. "Speaking of, didn't we come here for something?"
"Oh, right." Daniel removed the drive from his pocket. He hopped down the stairs and grabbed a stepladder. Placing it against the wall, he climbed up and stuck the drive inside a container on a high shelf.
"You don't think someone will find it there?" Lydia asked.
"Nah," he said, pushing the container to the back. "They only use this stuff once every other year for a SCUBA class. That happened last month so I think we're safe for awhile."
He mounted the stairs again and perched on the tank edge next to her. "How are you doing?"
"Better, thanks," she said, running her hand along Fozi's side. "I still have this sick feeling of violation, but it's getting better."
She said nothing for a moment and was very quiet when she spoke again. "Since my family died, I haven't really felt comfortable anywhere. I've spent the last six years wanting nothing more than a place on the Endure. Coming here was like..." She stopped, swallowed, and began again. "Coming here was like coming home. To know that a place I care about so deeply, and my own lab at that, was abused for something so despicable... Yeah. Violation is the best word I can think of, but even that's an understatement."
Daniel reached out and laid a hand on her shoulder. He had been with the Endure since the beginning, but hadn't ever stopped to think if he considered this place as home. "Hey," he said, and she looked at him. "We'll get to the bottom of it. We'll fix it. Both of us."
She gave him a half-hearted smile. "I hope so, Daniel. I really do."

Nemesis (The Endure series, book 2)
by S. A. Huchton
Genre: Science Fiction Romance (New Adult)
Available Now: Goodreads | Amazon| Barnes & Noble | Smashwords
Book Description:
"Tech genius Daniel Brewer isn't the only one with a romantic history. Already weighed down with the impossible problem of the Maven Initiative's plans for world domination and disaster, Dr. Lydia Ashley is finding it more and more difficult to keep things in balance. With an old flame reappearing and the schemes of a vindictive new rival thrown into the mix, her hopes for a life with Daniel may be on the brink of annihilation. 

When Lydia's past is brought to light, one big secret could destroy everything."

At 1045, there was a quiet rapping at her door. Lydia turned to see Dr. Corvis standing there, smiling politely. It was like watching a shark circling for an attack.
"Do you need something, Dr. Corvis?" Lydia said.
"Dr. Miller and I have worked out a possible sequence of alterations for one of the bacteria. Care to take a look?" 
Sure she was walking into a trap, Lydia agreed anyway. One of the work stations had been arranged with four different devices: an electron microscope, a centrifuge, a chromosome splitter more compact than any she had seen before, and a rotating rack for petri dishes.
"Where did that come from?" She indicated the splitter. The display screen on the top showed a squirming object, pinned in place by the microlasers hovering above the sample tray. The controls hummed, waiting for their next command.
"My own personal stash," Nick said, coming up behind her. He was closer than she would've liked, but given the confines of the area there wasn't anything for it.
Lydia was stunned. "You own a chromosome splitter? How did you afford that?"
Nick shrugged. "It was a gift from Dr. DeBeauvoir."
"He's as generous as he is brilliant," Dr. Corvis gushed. 
"Uh huh." Lydia gave her a sidelong glance. "So what have you been working on?"
Dr. Corvis answered for him. "Dr. Miller had some amazing insights on how to achieve the necessary virulence while maintaining its water-borne nature."  
"You figured that out? That was the one thing I was dreading the most. I had hoped to find a workaround so I wouldn't mess with bacteria's environmental needs." What Lydia hadn't said was that she was terrified of creating some super bug that would become airborne and infect everyone on the station.
Nick moved over to the electron microscope and looked into the eyepiece, adjusting the focus. "If you take a look here, you can see the segment of the chromosome we're targeting."
He took a step back and she positioned herself in front of the device. "What am I looking at, exactly?"
Nick leaned against the table, closing the distance between them some. He was close enough that she caught the scent of sandalwood from the soap he'd used since she'd known him at Stanford. Focus, she reminded herself.
"These base pairs are responsible for virulence and environment adaptation. They're right beside one another so it can be difficult to separate them. You have to know exactly what you're doing or you could wind up with something really nasty."
Lydia looked up from the eyepiece and was startled to find his face less than a foot away from her own. "Good thing you're here to make sure we don't do that then, I guess." She sounded like an idiot. His proximity was flustering her.
"I was about to make the first cut with the splitter, but I wanted to show you one other thing first." Nick slid up to the microscope and she skittered away, as though he might burn her if they touched.
If he noticed, he didn't show it. He made another slight adjustment to the eyepiece. "Here." They traded places again. "This is the chromosome segment responsible for host selection. According to Anna, this was being altered to make it viable on multiple cellular types. What this basically means is that the cell wall degradation mechanism will be much more powerful and adapted to both rigid cells from plants and softer cells from animals. Really wicked stuff." 
He was calling her Anna already? Damn. That woman worked fast. She pushed it aside. Lydia focused on what was important: a bacterium that could attack both flora and fauna. Something that strong could be devastating. "So it feeds off of organic material then, but doesn't discriminate in regards to the source? The environmental impact that will have..." Lydia rubbed her forehead. "Not only on human life. Anything within the release area will be obliterated."
"It's designed to only work for a certain period of time, within a certain range, remember," Dr. Corvis offered. Was she really defending the Maven Initiative? "The nanotags will ensure self-destruction of any infected phytoplankton outside that."
Lydia gaped at her. "And so that makes it okay?"
She shrugged. "To them, it was acceptable."
"Now I'll show you how to split the base pairs and graft the new ones," Nick said. Her spine went rigid as his hand touched the small of her back, ushering her towards the other piece of equipment. Fortunately, there wasn't far to go and the contact was brief.
Nick's hand grasped the controls, strong and steady. He talked her through the operation, explaining where the precise cuts needed to be made and directing the microlasers expertly.
"Did you do a lot of this with Dr. DeBeauvoir?" she asked.
"Not at first," he said, keeping his eyes on the screen. "But the last two years I was in the lab almost exclusively. I got a lot of practice with this thing. They were upgrading the equipment when I left so that's why I didn't feel guilty when they sent me away with this baby. We have spent many an hour together, Sheila and I."
She tried not to laugh, but couldn't help herself. "You named the splitter Sheila?"
"I thought about calling it Lydia, but that seemed inappropriate given the circumstances."
Her face burned as Dr. Corvis giggled. She actually giggled. Lydia was mortified, and Nick didn't so much as crack a smile. He couldn't be serious.
"There." He finished the cut and turned back to her. "Want to give it a try?"
Reining in her embarrassment, she nodded and stepped up to the controls. Nick loaded up another sample. He reached in front of her and punched in the autofocus on the sample camera. Another hit of sandalwood drifted up to her, scattering her thoughts. 
"You're looking for the eighteenth base pair," he said, directing her where to shift the sample plate. "Stop."
She had to remind herself to breathe. With the way her entire body was shaking, she would probably wind up creating a highly virulent super bacterium.
"Good, now lock in the sample position."
Lydia flipped a switch and six microlasers pinned the sample in place.
"This is the tricky part," Nick said. "You have to have the right touch."
Every nerve in her body electrified as Nick slid behind her and wrapped his hands around hers. If she wasn't seven shades of scarlet before, she absolutely was now. This was not happening. No way was this professional by any stretch of the imagination.
"Slowly... slowly... now cut."
Her thumbs pressed down on the buttons to fire the incision lasers, and she was careful not to jerk away as soon as it was done.
"Perfect," he said, leaning over her shoulder to smile at her.
Right on cue, a throat cleared and she jumped, pushing away from both the machine and Dr. Miller. 
Daniel was standing not ten feet away, looking none too happy about what he'd walked in on.
"We're dicing bacterial DNA," she blurted. "Dr. Miller was demonstrating how his equipment worked."
His eyebrow twitched and somewhere behind her, Dr. Corvis coughed to hide her laughter. Maybe her word choice had been a little questionable, but her brain was scrambled.
"Daniel Brewer, right?" Nick strode forward, hand extended. "I don't think we've been properly introduced. Nick Miller."
Daniel was not impressed.
Lydia hurried forward, cutting Nick off before he got any closer and all but pushed Daniel toward the door. "Time for lunch? Great! I'm famished. Let's go."
She was pretty sure Dr. Harpy was still laughing when they left the lab. Apparently, she'd decided on a new plan of attack.

When it comes to passion this hot, it’s all or nothing. 

Olivia Townsend’s wealthy cousin Marissa had everything a girl could ask for—a great job, a privileged life, and all the friends she wanted. Or, at least, all the friends money could buy. But one case of mistaken identity has turned her privileged world upside down.

An abduction gone wrong lands her right in the lap of the sexiest, most dangerous man she’s ever met. To Marissa, he’s an enigma, but one to whom she’s irresistibly, inexplicably drawn.

With him comes a new world of freedom and passion, of dark shadows and dangerous secrets, a world where nothing is what it seems—except for the blind passion that Marissa can’t escape—or maybe even survive.
M. Leighton is another author that always seems to surprise me with every new book I read from her. There’s something in the back of your mind that says, “She can’t possibly write another amazing book,” and I love that I’m proved wrong every time. EVERY. TIME. I fell in love with the Bad Boy Series, especially Cash. Cash was my boy and I loved Olivia. I loved how they grew, but when we were introduced to Nash, she had me questioning his character. Was he going to be the good, responsible boy like Cash remembered? The same guy Cash tried to imitate or was he going to throw us all for a loop?
“Like a salvation of sorts. I just didn’t know until recently that I needed saving.”
He threw me for a loop. It took me a minute to get into the story because of how much I loved Cash and Olivia and how much I despised Marissa, but like every other book by M. Leighton, I wasn’t disappointed. I was excited and on the edge of my seat. Like every bad boy, there’s a teddy bear hiding underneath the grizzly skin, but does Nash let it show is the question? Does Marissa transform into a phoenix, rising from the ashes of her old life and becoming something new? Sometimes all you need is a distraction, and what better way than to get lost into a lust filled attraction to someone you find incredibly irresistible?
“She’s starting to feel more and more like an anchor, like a North Star. 
Like my North Star.”
Not to say it was easy. Hell it was hard for Nash and Marissa. Both for different reasons, but you can’t deny the obvious. You can try, but eventually reality smacks you in the face.  Their story was filled with passion, anger, and need. But the thing I loved about Everything for Us is the fact that each character grew. Nash grew from an angry outcast into something he didn’t realize was hiding beneath the surface. A glimmer of who he used to be. Marissa grew from a spoiled, rich girl to a woman who finally able to start finding herself. From being a monster to being a human being with feelings. The Bad Boy Series, has enough badness, yes that refers to the amazing way M. Leighton wrote her sex scenes, but also contains life lessons about letting the past go, learning who you are, and letting love happen. Love conquers all right? I’ll leave that for you to decide, just know if you haven’t bought this book, you need to remedy that right now!
“You’re everything I didn’t know I needed, but everything I always knew I wanted.”
There’s also a place in the book, you’ll see what I’m talking about when I get there that I have to give a shout out to M. Leighton for. She may not realize it but I’m going to claim it like she did it purposely, even though I know she probably didn’t, “Number four thirteen. Mom’s birthday. April thirteenth.” Umm yea totally my favorite part in the ENTIRE book!! Sounds crazy right? I know that…. BUT it’s my BIRTH DATE so yea that’s my favorite part of the book…. Well that and the end, but you’ll have to read to find out why the last 10% is also my favorite! We all know how much I love music, I've been listening to a lot lately for some personal reasons. After reading this book there's this one song that stuck out to me and reminds me of the struggle both Nash and Marissa go through this whole book, some of the lyrics are from him, some from her, but ulitmately its about the love that doesn't go away. Listen to the song.. Let me know what you think
<3 Dani

I want to start off by saying I adore Michelle Leighton! I have read all her books and was so excited for Everything for Us.  Meeting her in person made me even more excited.  When it came time for the release I was so excited.  Nash’s book! Finally get to meet Nash further.  This book is written from Nash and Marissa’s POV’s.   It picks up right after Marissa is rescued and Nash and Cash stay with Olivia and Marissa.  Marissa has felt a connection with Nash and she is not sure why.  She thinks it’s because he looks so much like Cash.  Nash and Marissa work on the case for Cash and Nash’s dad.  They are working of trying to free him of the charges, and get the trouble off their backs.  Nash decides he needs a distraction and Marissa is it.  He wants her bad.  Can I just say...... WOW their Sex is SUPER HOT.  I think the first time is what hooks these two together. Nash tries to deny it often and run away from it.  Makes me want to SMACK HIM!!
I think Nash feels a sense of duty to protect Marissa but still runs away from his feelings.  And Marissa spends time thinking she isn’t good enough.  They go back and forth like this.  I sighed several times.  It’s hard when you want to shout.... JUST TALK! When Nash decides to take off after laying the case together for his brother and Marissa to take care of, he realizes that he needs her, what will he do?  
I absolutely  loved this book.  I think that it wrapped up Nash and Cash’s lives so well.  My favorite was the last half of the book. I felt a pull to the end and just didn’t want to let go.  I still don’t.  I think I love Nash a little more than Cash for what all he went through.  But they are equally HOT.  Read it and tell us what you think! Another Winner from Michelle Leighton!

Wish I May - Cover Reveal - Lexi Ryan

We are proud to help reveal the cover to Wish I May by Lexi Ryan.
This cover is so pretty! Sit back and enjoy, and look for the giveaway at the end.

WISH I MAY by Lexi Ryan
October 2013

Goodreads link:

I grew up wishing on stars.

My father taught me to believe…in destiny, in magic, in happily ever after. Dreams were my scripture and the starry night sky was my temple. Then Mom stopped believing, left him, and took us with her. At the age of sixteen, I cashed in my dreams to pay the rent, pawned my destiny to keep my sisters together. 

Now, seven years later, I’m returning home, grieving the death of my mother, and settling my sisters back into the life Mom threw away. I never intended to stay. I don’t want to deal with my father, who is so invested in the spiritual world he forgets the physical. I don’t want to face William Bailey, whose eyes remind me of the girl I was, the things I’ve done, and the future I lost.
This would all be easier if Will hated me. As it is, I have to hold my secrets close so they won’t hurt him more than they’ve already hurt me. But he wants to be in my life. He wants what I can’t bring myself to confess I sold. He wants me.

I find myself looking to my stars again...wondering if I dare one more wish.

Excerpt from WISH I MAY
© 2013 by Lexi Ryan

I can hardly breathe. My brain doesn’t have time for something as trivial as oxygen when it’s so busy cataloguing her features, memorizing the exact shade of her mocha eyes, warring with the anger and regret that have sprung to life as if they never left me to begin with.
I never thought I’d see her again. I didn’t think I wanted to. 
The moment I step closer, I realize my mistake. Being near her is like a sip of water to desert-parched lips. It whips something through me—memories, lust, first love. Heartbreak. She tilts her lips up to mine, and I actually think for one goddamned ridiculous minute that I might kiss her, that I want to. That I would swallow all my pride and forgive her for just one taste. 
I step back before I can give in to the impulse, and her cheeks blaze to life, her blush as cute as the rest of her. That’s the word for her: cute. Sweet smile and peppy ponytail, she exudes cuteness. 
Except her ass. Her ass doesn’t even land in the same stratosphere as cute, and those tight little pants do nothing to hide its soft, round curves. And her breasts. There’s definitely nothing cute about the way her T-shirt stretches across their fullness. Or her go-for-miles legs. Not to mention the narrow strip of skin exposed between her shirt and pants. Just looking at the single inch of flesh below her navel, and I practically taste strawberry wine on my tongue. 
Moonlight. Her warm skin under my tongue. The sound of her moan as my tongue dips lower. 
The memory grabs hold of my senses and won’t let go.
Fuck. I can’t even lie to myself. Nothing about her says cute. Everything about her says sex. And mine.
