Her eyes darkened with lust as she stared at him. Her reaction made him hotter, harder.

"I'm being punished for turning you on?"

Another shake of his head. "No. You are being rewarded for turning me on. But we're doing it my way. You teased the f*&k out of me, and now I want to watch you squirm. Crawl up on my bed and get on your hands and knees."

She held up her wrists, a sexy wink in her eyes. "I've been waiting for this."

 "Go, woman. And leave your shoes and stockings on."

I have to say that I get extremely excited when my email ding alerts me to a new tour that involves Lauren Blakely. I have yet to read a book by her that I didn't just absolutely fall in complete love with, Every Second with You reached so far beyond my expectations that I'm grateful for getting to be part of the tour, even if I goofed the dates up. When I received the ARC I've never been so hesitant to read a book before. Normally I'm thrilled and can't wait to dive in, but knowing this is the last book for Harley and Trey... I wasn't ready to say goodbye. I'm still not ready to say goodbye and hope that somewhere down the road we get a little visit from these two characters.

So much happened with Harley in The Thrill of It. She was able to let her former life go and be in a serious committed relationship with Trey. She wrote a book about her life as a call girl, told her mother about it, and let her best-friend know about her life. Harley was growing up, she was becoming someone better, and she was falling in love with Trey. Now Trey had his own issues. Some deep rooted emotional issues that he tried to block out by sleeping with older women so he didn't have to be in a relationship with anyone. No reason to get hurt. Then he met Harley and that changed everything for him. So for the first time he opened up to a relationship with the girl he was head over in heels love with. But sometimes when everything is going good, the other shoe drops.

We learn at the end of The Thrill of It, Harley's pregnant, what we didn't find out at the end of the book is how Trey takes it. Every Second with You picks up shortly after Harley finding out and doesn't make you wait to see how Trey takes the news. The thing is the past doesn't always stay hidden and when your future is a reminder of the past, how do you cope? I was in shock when a certain past came back with a possibility of Trey's. I was worried for Harley, hell I was worried for Trey. I was more than terrified for Harley when an ex client saw her and recognized her on the plane as well. The past doesn't always stay in the past unfortunately, but with determination and love, sometimes things can be overcome. 

The thing I love about Lauren Blakely is that she takes us on emotional journey that has you feeling everything these characters are going through. EVERYTHING. I felt Harley's emotions as if they were my own and I felt Trey's as if he was a part of me. I LOVE that about books. IT's golden and not everyone can do that, so when I find a book like that I hold on to it, hug it, cry a little with it, but I will always go back to it. Harley and Trey's story is one of those books for me. I will never look at a plane the same way either. Why you ask? Well you're just going to have to read it to find out. Do I recommend this book... HELL YES! Will I reread this book...HELL YES! So you need to enter the awesome giveaways and pick this book up and read it like crazy if you haven't already!

 When I finished The Thrill of it I was excited that Every Second with you came out. I was Not Disappointed! I love Harley and Trey! Both trying to recover and get on with their lives. If you haven't read The Thrill of it stop reading :)
Trey and Harley are navigating through their lives together as a couple. They are adorable! What happens when new live is created ???? Yep Harley gets pregnant. And knowing Treys things with his brothers, he's scared. They both react a little bad based on their issues. But their love and commitment to talk to each other about their fears powers through! I loved that part of the book! Harvey finds out she has grandparents who love her and her mom kept them from her. They are awesome people! I also loved meeting Trey's parents more in the book. I can't say enough how much I loved the flow of this book. I can't say more else I'll give away big things. Lauren Blakley hit this out if the park! I cried at the end. Totally in love!!

In the Lyrics Blog Tour

Hensley Bradley is the definition of the girl-next-door. She’s kindhearted, beautiful, and talented. Bored with her mundane life, thoughts of fleeing her small town begin to consume her. With aspiring dreams to use her voice as a one-way ticket, she suddenly discovers that music might not be her only passion.

After a fallout back home, Colby Grant decides to leave his family’s farm, determined to show his father he’s more than just a wanna-be country singer. With his All-American good looks, it doesn’t take long for girls in his new town to focus their eyes on him. But things aren’t what they appear from the outside, and it isn’t long until Colby feels he doesn't fit into the perfect world that so quickly embraced him.

A chance encounter places Hensley in Colby’s path, but it isn’t her natural beauty that first captures his attention – it’s her voice.

When love and music mix, will the combination blossom into a beautiful melody or wither into a heart-wrenching tune?

Christina's Review

I fell in love with this book.  I read it rather quickly.  Colby Grant is a character that you can help but love.  He is leaving home to get away from stuff going on in his family and to pursue his dream of a music career.  When he gets to Nashville to meet his roommate Dusty he finds that a beautiful girl comes with the package.  See Dusty's best friend Hensley can sing and stays with him all the time.  There is an instant connection with Colby and Hensley.  Hensley had protected herself from men because of how her mom is.  She wants a singing career and to move away from home. Colby breaks down Hensley's walls and they form this relationship that is utterly beautiful.  I mean a guy who calls you Sunshine??/ Who wouldn't melt at that?  Dusty, Colby and Hensley form a trio singing.  They get noticed, well Colby does.  He tries to get the 3 of them noticed and when the greedy manager wants just Colby he turns them down.  They go right for Hensley and she Accepts! She has no idea about Colby's offer.  
When Hensley moves to California will she change?  And what will happen when Colby visits and is forced by the music label to tell her about his offer?  Can they make it back to each other?  And when a tragic even brings Hensley home, can she remember WHO she is.  
I loved all aspects of this book.  And my heart broke for the pain that both Colby and Hensley had in their lives.  I loved the whole story.  Go fall in love with In the Lyrics.

Deeper Blog Tour

When Caroline Piasecki’s ex-boyfriend posts their sex pictures on the Internet, it destroys her reputation as a nice college girl. Suddenly her once-promising future doesn’t look so bright. Caroline tries to make the pictures disappear, hoping time will bury her shame. Then a guy she barely knows rises to her defense and punches her ex to the ground.

West Leavitt is the last person Caroline needs in her life. Everyone knows he’s shady. Still, Caroline is drawn to his confidence and swagger—even after promising her dad she’ll keep her distance. On late, sleepless nights, Caroline starts wandering into the bakery where West works.

They hang out, they talk, they listen. Though Caroline and West tell each other they’re “just friends,” their feelings intensify until it becomes impossible to pretend. The more complicated her relationship with West gets, the harder Caroline has to struggle to discover what she wants for herself—and the easier it becomes to find the courage she needs to fight back against the people who would judge her.

When all seems lost, sometimes the only place to go is deeper.

I’ve always enjoyed reading paranormal books, but lately I find myself drawn to books that depict real life. Its crazy since I read books to get away from the norms of day to day, but there’s something about reading a book about character’s who could be living next door to me. It’s about rooting for the underdog, hoping that they get their HEA and being pulled into their life as if it could be your own.

When I received the email to be part of Robin York’s Deeper blog tour, I was excited. The blurb appealed to me and the cover is gorgeous so of course I jumped on the chance. I. Was. Not. Disappointed. Well, maybe a little but only because I need the next book. I need to know what happens because here I am getting ready for work and I’m crying, ugly, and I need to see what happens with West and Caroline.  
I need to see that Caroline nails that horrible ex of hers. I need to see that West takes care of his family drama and that Frankie is ok. I need to see that taking a chance on love like they did is going to be so much more than how this book ended. Don’t get me wrong this book ended beautifully and if it was the final book, I could completely understand it, but I’m greedy and definitely need more. So of course I looked to see if there was going to be another book, and there IS!! So rest assured my fabulous book junkies, after you read this amazing story, it’s not the end, Caroline and West’s story continues in Harder. So. Can’t. Wait.

So what’s it about? I guess I should throw that in here right? Caroline is off at college with the mindset of being a lawyer. She was dating Nate and like some girls who are in love with their boyfriends, even if they know its wrong, they allow pictures to be taken. Well Nate is a jerk and after Caroline realizes that their relationship wasn’t what she thought it was, she lets him go. Too bad he didn’t just suck it up like a normal person, he decided to take matters into his own hands causing Caroline embarrassment. Part of the reason of Caroline being able to let Nate go is because of the guy she met on her first day on campus, West, he made her feel things she didn’t feel with Nate.

West is a guy with a goal.  One that no one can get in the way of, until he meets Caroline. He’s done a good job staying away from her but when things are said between him and Nate, that all changes. He finds her outside his job one night and it changes everything no matter how hard he tries to keep her at a distance. Sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants. West is a dealer, a baker, and misunderstood. He does things he’s not proud of because he has to. The last thing he expects is to find someone he wants more than his dream of being a doctor.

Caroline and West find comfort in each other but something innocent as making bread turns into more than they both thought it would. When feelings and limbs collide is there going to be a way out? Can they make it through everything life is going to throw at them? I sure as hell hope so because if any one deserves it, they definitely do! Pick this book up if you haven’t already!

Deeper was a book that had me from the get go.  Caroline’s story is one that I did not think could happen to someone but it does. Her ex boy friend took a racy picture of her when they were together and when they broke up he spread it around the internet.  FOR ALL the people at school see.  So Caroline became withdrawn and hidden.  She meets this guy West, before school starts and likes him right away….. but her dad told her to stay away from him.  Why?  Well I guess he is trouble.  But really some people just say that.  Caroline starts hanging out with West and they both say “they cant be friends and they aren’t friends”.  You know what happens when two people say that and hang out all the time right? Well, both Caroline and West do become closer and you know West wants more, he is always touching her and trying to reassure her that she was not the girl everyone saw in the picture that was blasted.  Both of them grow closer and the attraction is palpable.  I loved it when they finally get together….but you know….. “They aren’t friends or anything”.  ACK!! That part had me going … “COME ON!”  But they both had growing to do.  And with West’s stresses in life and Caroline’s they both have stuff to work through.  The Roller Coaster ending has me wanting the next book and more every soon!!!

Take Two Blog Tour Stop

He’s ready for his close up, but she’s the one calling the shots. 
On the night of her graduation from film school, straight-laced Maddie Bauers fell completely out of character for an oh-my-god make-out session with a perfect stranger. Complete with the big O.

Seven years later, that romantic interlude is still fresh in her mind. That stranger is now a rich and famous actor. And she’s one very distracted camera assistant working on his latest production. She might consider another tryst…if he even remembers her.

Micah Preston does indeed remember Maddie. Too bad he’s sworn off Hollywood relationships. He allows himself as much sex as he likes—and oh, he does like—but anything more is asking for trouble. For the woman, not for him. Yet knowing Maddie could want more than a movie-set fling doesn’t stop him from pursuing her like a moth drawn to hot stage lights.

But as the shoot nears its end, it’s decision time. Is it time to call, “Cut!” on their affair, or is there enough material for a sequel?

Warning: Contains a dreamy movie star hero, a focus-pulling heroine, off-the-charts instant chemistry, steamy sex in near-public locations, and a new use for lip gloss.

When I first got the email to sign up for Laurelin Page's Take Two, I was intrigued and worried at the same time. I've read a few books about the heroine falling in love with the superstar and worried it was going I be same story different characters. I was completely wrong and I was thrilled about it.

So Maddie just graduated and was dragged to a party by Bree her best friend. This I where she met Micah. Micah is an actor who was at the party because it was to celebrate finishing the movie he just stared in. Both of them didn't want to be there so their first instinct was to hide. When Maddie was walking back to an area that looked secluded, Micah was already in that same spot. Major attraction overload!! Hottttt overload that lead to Maddie achieving a big O and left Micah with a bad case of blue balls. That's it that's the end.... Or maybe not.

7 years later they meet again at the airport. They both act like they don't recognize each other but of course that same intense attraction is there and they can't seem to keep it under wraps... Maybe at first but not for long. Maddie is the camera guys assistant so she sees him every day. She wants to be with him but he doesn't do relationships... So where does that leave them?

Will Micah take a chance on Maddie? Will Maddie understand what comes with being in a relationship with a star? What happens when the movie wraps and seeing each other every day is no longer a possibility? Acting is Micah's dream... Directing is Maddie's dream.... Is there a compromise or is saying goodbye the only option?

I spread out reading this book because I didn't want it to end. I'm so in love with Maddie and Micah's story that I wish there was more. You should totally pick up this book if you haven't already!

Take Two was an AWESOME book.  I absolutely loved it.  Maddie and Micah met at a wrap party for an indie film.  IT was a quick make out session before Maddie’s best friend got sick and she had to leave.  Micah wanted more time with her, but it didn't happen.  And as he started his career he was told relationships would only hold him back.  So he made his motto never to have one.  We are fast forwarded 7 years later and Maddie is pulled to work camera on a film, and WHO is in the film??  Yep Micah.  She notices him right away, and she thinks he has no idea who she is.  Only we find out he does and is just being a totally ass.  HE wants her but is trying not to.  Maddie can't  get involved with “the talent”  but oh boy does she want him.  You know sexual tension can only last too long before it needs attention right?  Oh boy these two don’t disappoint.  I love that we are inside both of their heads because we can see them both trying to keep it fun and not have strings attached but also watch them both fight that this is more than just attraction.  Laurelin Paige does an amazing hub building the tension we need in a story like this.  Fall in love with Maddie and Micah’s story.  Can they make this work in the movie industry?  And Can Micah trust his feelings for Maddie or will he be a jerk?  AHHAHA ya I know guys right?  I love the ending absolutely and want more of these two!  It does Take Two to make a relationship work.
