Spotlight: Tied (Tangled #4) by Emma Chase – Save The Date

TIED is just around the corner, and you know what that means! THE RETURN OF DREW EVANS! Are you excited? I am! I am a big fan of the Tangled series so I am very much looking forward to another wild ride. 

Tied Save the Date



Tied (Tangled #4) by Emma Chase



In the fourth sexy romance by the New York Times bestselling author of Tangled
and Twisted, Drew and Kate can’t wait to tie the knot—if they can survive the pre-
wedding festivities.

For most of my life, I never imagined I’d get married. But Kate did the impossible: she changed me. I think we can all agree I was pretty frigging awesome before, but now I’m even better.

The road to this day wasn’t all rainbows and boners. There were mistakes and
misunderstandings worthy of a Greek tragedy. But Kate and I made it through with our inexhaustible lust, boundless admiration, and everlasting love for one another intact.

That being said, there were some unexpected incidents in Vegas last weekend that could have been a problem. It was kind of…my final test.

I know what you’re thinking—what the hell did you do this time? Relax. Let’s not judge, or call for my castration, until you’ve heard the whole story.

And hold on tight, because you’re in for a wild ride. Did you expect anything less?




By day, Emma Chase is a devoted wife and mother of two who resides in a small, rural town in New Jersey. By night she is a keyboard crusader, toiling away the hours to bring her colorful characters and their endless antics to life. She has a long standing love/hate relationship with caffeine.

Emma is an avid reader. Before her children were born she was known to consume whole books in a single day. Writing has also always been a passion and with the 2013 release of her debut romantic comedy, Tangled, the ability to now call herself an author is nothing less than a dream come true.

Blog Tour: Worth Forgiving (MMA Fighter #3) by Vi Keeland + Excerpt and GIVEAWAY

Worth Forgiving (MMA Fighter #3) by Vi Keeland



They say men like a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom. I never knew the sentiment was reciprocal. Until I met Jax Knight. A gentleman in public, a commanding, dirty talking rogue in the bedroom.

Daughter of legendary fighter “The Saint,” Lily St. Claire knows firsthand how fighters can be. As the owner of a chain of MMA gyms, she’s no stranger to aggressive, dominating, and possessive men. That’s why she’s always kept her distance. But the day Jax Knight walks through her door she’s captivated by his charm. Stunningly handsome, well mannered, Ivy League educated, and confident, he shatters all the preconceived notions she’d come to think were true about men who trained to fight.

But falling for someone so soon after her breakup wasn’t something she’d planned on. And definitely not something her ex plans to allow.

***Author's note*** THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.



Dinner and a dirty mouth

My face pinks when the waiter clears his throat, no doubt he’d heard Jax’s last comment.

“Are you ready to hear the specials?”

“Are we?” Jax arches an eyebrow, his eyes gleaming with delight. He’s not the slight bit embarrassed, but knows I am and is quite enjoying himself.

“Yes. Please.” I give him the evil eye and force my full attention back to the waiter. The entire time the waiter talks about the specials I feel Jax’s eyes burning into me.

“I’ll give you a moment to let you decide.” Graciously, the waiter excuses himself.

“Why did you do that?” I scold, my voice low.

“Do what?” He leans back in his seat, crossing his arms over his thick chest.

“You know exactly what I’m talking about.”

“Do I?”

“You enjoy watching me flustered, don’t you?”

Jax arches both eyebrows. Bad choice of words.

“You know what I mean.”

Leaning in, his voice gritty and sexy, he looks me straight in the eyes when he speaks. “I love watching you. Period. But what I like best is watching you pretend you’re unaffected. It’s like an unspoken challenge.” He pauses and leans in even closer. “I love the pink that creeps up your cheeks when I say something dirty. The way your p*ssy throbs when I mention what I’m going to do to you later, and you wiggle in your seat trying to control it. So yeah, I guess I do like watching you flustered. You sit and give your attention to the waiter, trying to pretend you’re listening to whatever he’s saying instead of thinking of me feeding you my c*ck later, but we both know you didn’t hear one word he said. Hell I didn’t hear one word watching you, just knowing what you were thinking about.”

This time, I see the waiter before he’s close enough to hear us. He smiles as he reaches our table. “So what can I get for you this evening? Did I interest you in one of our specials?”

I look at the waiter, then Jax, who arches an eyebrow with a knowing smirk on his face, then back to the waiter. “The specials all sounded delicious. I just can’t decide for myself. I’m going to defer to my date to pick one for me.” I return my eyes to Jax with a cheeky grin.

He throws his head back with a chuckle and looks at the poor confused waiter. “We’ll take whatever two are your favorites. Surprise us.”

Review: This Man Confessed (This Man #3) by Jodi Ellen Malpas

This Man Confessed

This Man Confessed (This Man #3) by Jodi Ellen Malpas




The Manor, the very place where their passionate love affair began, fills with guests on what should be the happiest day of Ava and Jesse's lives. She has accepted that she'll never tame the fierceness in Jesse-and she doesn't want to. Their love is profound, their connection powerful, but just when she thinks that she's finally gotten beneath his guarded exterior, more questions arise, leading Ava to believe that Jesse Ward may not be the man she thinks he is. He knows too well how to take her to a place beyond ecstasy . . . but will he also drive her to the brink of despair? It's time for this man to confess.

Please note: This trilogy needs to be read in order - This Man (#1), Beneath This Man (#2), and This Man Confessed (#3).



5 out of 5 stars

Excellent conclusion to the series. I am so very happy! All my questions have been answered. Loved it all!  

Jesse and Ava can be so frustrating and messed up because of their challenging ways but they are also very endearing and sweet, they were made for each other. I absorbed all the details of their ups and downs and loved the conclusion. They both continue to make these crazy choices and sometimes I found myself saying NO to both of them but it all made for a heck of a story. It was passionate, very hot, full of drama, had some seriously emotional moments, and was entertaining at times as well.

There has been a build up of lingering questions from the first two books involving various characters and story lines. Some things I saw coming and some things completely shocked me. There was just SO MUCH there's no way I could cover it all but I thought it was all awesome. This Man Confessed certainly had Jesse doing just that, it was intense and heartbreaking. There were a lot of secondary stories happening as well and I really liked how everything intertwined and unraveled.

For as challenging as both Ava and Jesse can be, I saw more of the laid back Jesse that everyone said they knew in the previous books. I loved him. Though they had their crazy moments, there were so many more peaceful, loving moments in this story. I really was on Central Jesse Cloud Nine. By the end I loved Ava. I have always liked her but it was this unconditional love and determination that she had and her ability to forgive that really pushed me over the edge. 

I absolutely adored the epilogue from Jesse’s POV. I had a huge smile plastered on my face because I was so happy with everything that was going on. I loved the glimpses of everyone's lives and where they are at and it ended with my heart happy.

Since book one, I have been wrapped up in Jesse Ward, an intense alpha male and his love for Ava, and their love for one another. I've been anxiety ridden, completely stressed, invested in their lives and rooting for them. I'm so happy for their conclusion but I'm sorry it's over. Excellent trilogy. Thank you JEM.
