About My Kinda Mess:

All her life, Lexi Summer has dreamed of one thing: to become a mother. As the youngest of six, she’s accustomed to the chaos and camaraderie that comes with a big family, which is why she has been anxious to get a jump on this next phase in her life. She thought she had it all: the perfect house, husband, and future. Until one secret rips it all apart.

Nothing in Linkin Stone’s life has been easy. Raised by a single mom, working two jobs, and helping with his much younger twin brothers which keep him on his toes, and working two jobs. He busts his butt to right the wrong of someone from his past and keep the ones he loves safe. He doesn’t need anyone or anything. But that all changes the moment he meets his sexy, feisty neighbor, Lexi.

When fates collide, two people on separate paths suddenly find themselves traveling the same road. Could an easy friendship turn into something more? Or in the end, will their decision kinda create one big mess?
*Though part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone. It is intended for those 18 and over due to graphic language, descriptive sex, and the world’s most inappropriate grandparents.

Hard to believe this is book 4 from the Summer series and boy loving it. Each sister has their own unique story and man the men, well Lacey Black sure knows how to spice it up. I love Linkin Stone and the way he treats Lexi like she is the most important thing. I never liked Chris in the previous books and Lexi deserves so much more. The chemistry her and Linkin have is hot something she has never experienced before. As usual it is not just them but we see the rest of the family including their sexually crazed grandparents. Love this series cannot wait for the next Summer sister. Lacey Black once again shows us that no matter how much family we have love is always around the corner.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“It’s time to get this thing started!” the little old woman hollers behind me, walking by and swatting me on the ass. “Oh, that’s nice,” she adds with an ornery grin and a wink.

What in the hell is going on here?

“We’re ready. Go!”

“Go?” I ask, confused, and rubbing the back of my neck with my hand.

“Strip! It’s why you’re here, right? My granddaughter, Alexis, is celebrating her divorce, and what a better way to rejoice than with a stripper! Oh, that agency was right. You are a delicious, big ol’ slab of meat. So, take it off! Take it off!” the woman chants, the girls standing off to the side giggling and chugging whatever is in their glasses (probably alcohol).

“Grandma, this is completely not necessary,” Lexi says from the chair.

“Zip it! It’s completely necessary to welcome you back into the dating world with some naked man meat. This is a cellllllllebrationnnnnnn, Alexis.”

“Stop calling me that. I’m not even divorced yet.”

“Semantics.” Walking up to her granddaughter, the old woman whispers loudly, “Hey, maybe you’ll get to sleep with the stripper. He’s super hunky with a great ass,” she adds with another wink sent my way.

“Please don’t do this,” Lexi begs from her chair.

“Too late. I’ve already paid the beefcake. Just sit there and enjoy. I know I’m ready,” Grandma says, pulling a folding chair nearby so she gets an up-close and personal view.

My heart is hammering in my chest as I take in the room. The other occupants are staring at me expectantly, while Grandma grabs her phone, presumably to take pictures or video.

Strip in a room full of woman?

For Lexi?

Fuck yes!

Suddenly, the music changes to Warrant. “Cherry Pie” blares through the speakers, and I realize I’m at a fork in the road. I can get the hell out of this apartment, away from the crazy old woman who’s apparently into buying her grandkids strippers, and hide away from Lexi and her whacked family for the rest of my time in this building.

Or, I can stay.

And strip.

A broad smile stretches across my face as I take in the anxiously nervous woman sitting before me. I wonder why she hasn’t removed her blindfold, and upon closer inspection, I realize her hands are also tied to the back of the chair.

Perfect.

Have you ever felt alone, like no one is there for you or wonder where you belong? We have an anthology filled with stories that make you wonder what happened, why this is happening but most importantly these authors come together for a good cause in this book. We have for example FORTUITOUS about a young widow struggling to survive after losing her true love. Yet a stranger makes her see that a second chance in learning to love again can be well fortunate. Then we have K.K. Allen in her SWEET MELODY. Have to say it was great to see Wolf and Lyric again after their story. In a way it felt right seeing them in this short story and their happily ever after yet Lyrics fears shows us that they are real like everybody else. All in all this was a great book quite enjoyed it. Talented authors coming together for a cause that many people struggle right now.

Lauren Blakely’s MOST LIKELY TO SCORE – Release Day

✮✮✮ MOST LIKELY TO SCORE is here! Grab your copy today! ✮✮✮

A sexy new forbidden romance from #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely…

It should have been a simple play…

She needed a football player to step up and be the star for a charity calendar. I needed a sharp and savvy publicist to manage a brand-new sponsorship deal. I scratched her back. She scratched mine. And oh hell, did Jillian ever drag her nails down my back on one hell of a hot night. Okay fine, it was several hot nights on the road.

Now we’re back in town and it’s time to set the play clock back to when we were simply player and publicist. Given the way the last few years have gone, I can’t risk this deal, so it’s hands off for us once again. Trouble is, I want more than than just another night with her.

What’s a guy to do when he’s always been most likely to score, but the woman he’s falling for is just out of bounds?

I don’t date players.
And I definitely don’t sleep with players.
And I absolutely don’t fall for a certain player when I get to know him and learn he’s more than just sexy — he’s clever, funny and has a heart as big as his . .. well, you get my drift.

But my job is at stake, and I can’t afford to lose that as well as my heart. The problem is, I think I’ve already lost that game.

What’s a girl to do when the clock is running out, but the man she’s falling for is off limits?

MOST LIKELY TO SCORE is a brand new standalone sports romance written in dual POV!

Finally we have Jones story and ladies Lauren Blakely sure knows how to sex it up. I love that this guy knows he is sexy as hell and man pure temptation for Jillian. Have to applaud Jillian for staying strong when it comes to Jones I caved every time he showed his sexiness and man his loving dogs and cats. Lauren Blakely created such a sexy guy you would think he’s a playboy all the way but it takes the right woman to make him see love is the place to score forever. Loved it.

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don’t let the fact that I’m the leading pick in the MOST LIKELY TO SCORE charity auction fool you. These days, I’m only a player on the field. I’ve kept my pants zipped all season long — and it has been long — because nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the team owner’s recently-widowed and handsy-as-hell sister who’s dead set on winning more than a date with me.

Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.

She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me we have to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract.
Violet takes one for the team and pretends to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport, and I want it to go into overtime. The problem is — I’ve been riding the bench for years.

How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?

MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY is a brand new standalone sports romance written in the guy’s POV!

👄Excerpt👄

~Jillian~

He runs his hand through his hair, flashing a lopsided grin then a wink. “Sorry. I meant are you my personal PR person now?”

That word zips through me like an electric charge. A light gust of wind blows my hair across my cheeks, and I tuck the strands behind my ear, grateful for the temporary distraction courtesy of San Francisco’s windy morning. I shiver lightly from the chill. “Yes, that seems to be the case, and I’m happy to do it.”

He cocks his head to the side. “Are you like my babysitter?”

My jaw drops. “What? No. No. No. That’s ridiculous. I’m not a babysitter.”

He arches a brow. “A nanny?”

I smirk. “Jones, I would hope you’ve outgrown the need for a nanny.”

“That’s up for debate, it seems. But maybe you’re my governess?”

I roll my eyes and gesture to the car at the curb. “I’m not your nanny, I’m not your babysitter, and I’m definitely not your governess. I’m here to help you create the best image possible. I can market, publicize, and help you manage putting the best foot forward,” I say, my tone earnest, my meaning important. “I believe in what I do. I know you’re a great guy, and I want the world to see what I’ve seen in the last couple days.”

“Yeah?”

“That’s why I said yes when Ford asked for my help. I’m not interested in being anyone’s au pair. I am very interested, though, in showing this city what good things our team does on and off the field. Including you.” I take a breath and try to read him. To understand what’s beneath the teasing. I think I know what it is. He wants a choice. “But if you don’t want me to help out, I’ll step back and we can stick to just the calendar. I told Ford I’d do this for your new deal, because I want to be the one to help you if you need it, and it’s the kind of help I can give. Since you signed the contract yesterday, and the folks at Paleo Pet are local, they want to stop by the shoot later today. Take some pictures, chat, and so on. I’m happy to be there by your side the whole time, making sure you’re comfortable with everything, and you’re represented in the best way possible. But if those aren’t your wishes, and if it isn’t what you need, then I’ll be hands-off. I hold up my palms as if I’m backing away.

In a heartbeat, he grabs my wrists. Possessively. A thrill rushes through me, like a drumbeat pulsing in my veins. I look away from him briefly. I can’t make eye contact when he does this, when he touches me. If I do, he’ll know. He’ll realize I’m just like all the other women who fling panties at him, who chase him down in bars, who line up at the players’ entrance to become his football floozy for the night. I won’t ever be someone’s football floozy, and I can’t let him see for a second that I want some of the same things those other women want from him. Him.

“Don’t be hands-off,” he says, his voice soft.

Yes I am grumpy and brokenhearted but I really thought Emma would be mine. At least that’s the inside me saying, the outside me knows we would never have worked. She belongs to my brother, Gavin and me once again is alone. Everybody sees me as the fun and sexy playboy but really I just want love. I know it is out there but for now I have to figure out how to work with the sexy assistant I now have. I didn’t think I can fall again but there is something about her that makes me want to know more about her. She is different from the other women I have been with which is more of why I want her.

Geez these Kingsley brothers just get hotter with their own stories. I loved Cooper in Gavins story and seeing him hurt broke my heart. Now we see a side of him that he has hidden from others and all he wants is love. These two have a secret bond that is strong but one wrong move and she pulls back. Copper is by far the funniest, sweetest and yes sexiest brother ever. Cannot way to finally get to see the oldest Kindsley brother next.

Harper Sloan has saved the best for last and boy Clayton Davis sure is more than what we expected. He takes his job as the oldest seriously making the ranch his main priority. Lately, though seeing his siblings find their won happiness is making him well antsy. He secretly dreams of settling down but after one messed up relationship he is afraid of a repeat. Meeting Caroline Michaels just shocks, surprises and scares the hell out of him. One night of passion makes him wonder what it is about Caroline that has him wanting to settle down.

I love the Coming Home series by Harper Sloan wishing it never ends. We finally have Clayton and man was he hot. The chemistry between them is something he never has experienced before and yet he cannot stay away from her. Harper Sloan in each book in this series just shines but this one have to say comes full circle with the Davis family. Loved it.

Jackson and Delilah that is how it was always supposed to be. At least in my heart it still is but he left me. I have no idea why he did what he did but Cole Cutler was the one who helped. The thing is his kind of help has destroyed me and now I am not who I used to be anymore. I was the cheerleader and even though Jackson was the gorgeous quarterback the man he is now can hurt me more than Cole. His love was the only thing that kept me strong even though we were not together anymore. Seeing him again after all these years breaks me because of who I am now. No longer the happy cheerleader just a woman trying to make ends meet searching for her happily ever after. Can I be the woman Jackson needs or are we both broken?

One thing about S.L. Scott is that she never disappoints you in her men. We have the bad boy Cole and the cheerleader that has always been there for him Delilah. Together these two form a love no one has seen and still there. Though they have drifted apart the chemistry still sizzles between them. In a way this is a second chance love story that just takes you away. Loved it cannot wait to see what else is in store by this talented author.
