Release Day of Bottom of the Ninth by Kimberly Readnour

 

Release Date: September 27, 2018

Cover Design: Daqri Bernardo / Covers by Combs

Synopsis

Meet bad boy catcher, A.J. Gonzalez…

When I stood Mia up eight years ago, I never dreamed I’d run into her again. But here she is, making me look like a fool in front of thousands of fans.

The sweet, innocent girl never knew why I left. But I had my reason. A good one. In no way was I worthy enough for Mia Gunner. Today, grown up and hotter than ever, she’s still too good for me. But when she walks by, wearing those skin-tight leggings, that doesn’t stop me from wanting that taste I denied myself. And I get it.

Almost.

It turns out; Mia isn’t through plotting her sweet revenge. Now, left in a not so compromising position, Mia won’t have anything to do with me.

That is until we find ourselves in another awkward situation. When I think life can’t get more complicated, Mia packs a few more surprises. And believe me, she may not be as timid as I once thought.

I can’t help wanting her, but I need to stay away. Especially with our paths taking different courses. But I’ve never been one to back away from a challenge. It’s the bottom of the ninth. Time to score. I’ll either step to the plate or strike out. No matter what happens, this will definitely be a December I’ll never forget.

👄Melena’s Reviews👄

It has been years but the hurt is still there. It was the first time that Mia Gunner let a boy like A.J. Gonzales into her life. At the time she knew it will be bad but seeing back now she wonders if maybe she judged to fast. A.J. has never forgotten about Mia but knew at the time he doing a good thing. Now what I loved about this one by Kimberly Readnour is that we see a side of A.J. that nobody sees and for good reasons. These two together have different opinions about each other it is easy to see where they are at right now. The chemistry is still there and also their easy banter was awesome to read about. Really hope there’s more of this series loved it.

About EXQUISITE TASTE

He was a dare she couldn’t walk away from.

She was a game he was determined to win.

Jensen Stone was thriving in her first year of college. So thirsty for success she could already taste the achievements on her lips. Nothing would get in the way of her dreams, not even the social pressures of pledging. Until one night, she finds herself in the lion’s den of sorority row, accepting a dare she knew she couldn’t complete.

Damien Cross was bored. He no longer craved the dominance and control he had swirling in the palms of his powerful hands. He was determined to walk away from the empire he’d spent the last ten years building. What he didn’t factor in was the unexpected distraction. He might be angry at her inconvenient timing, but the urge to break the new toy dangling in front of him was all consuming. It wouldn’t hurt to play one last time.

One night. His rules.

Will she obey his demands to fulfill a dare?

Or will she realize his dark tastes are anything but exquisite?

This is the first I have read by Kaylea Cross and wow. The attraction between them may start as friends but there is much more hidden between them. I loved that Kaylea Cross shows us that no matter the situation, how tough it is or heartaching it is love prevails everything. Best part is this is the first in this series we still have Sierra’s brother, Noah. Cannot wait.

“I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own.”

Exclusive Excerpt:

The moment I see her, I feel something so profound, so completely in my heart that it just makes everything right in the world.

It’s her.

Stunning.

Breathtaking.

That’s the only way to describe the incredible woman who now stands at my side.

I grab her hand as soon as she’s within reach and bring it to my lips. There’s a slight tremble, though I’m not sure if it’s her hand or mine. Probably both. She looks up at me with so much excitement, so much happiness, that I don’t pay any attention to the man standing in front of me, speaking.

I should probably pay attention, right?

But I can’t.

I only see her.

My Meghan.

“Repeat after me.”

And I do. I say the words, feeling them with every fiber of my being, as I vow to stand by her side, to love and protect her, till death do us part. It’s an easy proclamation to make, since it’s nothing but the truth. Her eyes fill with tears as she repeats the same vows as me, but she never wavers, never falters.

Exclusive Excerpt:

Abby

I jump down and grab my knife, but as but as I pull back in what should be the segue into my quick getaway run—dramatic, smooth, commanding, just like in the movies—I’m jerked back.

Shit. Shit. Shit.

The knife is stuck.

“Abby, let’s go!” Beth snaps at me. She’s crouched behind the truck where they can’t see her. “I cannot believe that I trusted that you were going to break up with him like a normal person. Let’s go.”

“I’m trying,” I shush back, jerking again on the damn knife.

“Just leave it.”

“It has my initials on it.”

A gift from my mom for my eighteenth birthday. She knows me so well. Not.

“What the … seriously?” Beth moves around to the tire and pushes me out of the way. I duck when Jace’s ball cap comes into view over the back of the truck. Then, Beth and I yank on the knife together.

Nothing happens.

“Let me drive!” Tyler shouts.

“Dude, what the fuck is your deal? It’s my truck. I’ll drive.”

“But I’m thinking of getting one just like it, and I need to test drive something.” Tyler’s response is quick.

“Dude, whatever,” Jace replies as I see the keys flying through the air, right before Tyler comes into view.

“What the fuck are you doing, Abby?” he says through the side of his lips. I barely see his mouth move.

“Trying to leave. What does it look like?” I whisper frantically.

“Whoops!” Tyler drops the keys. He kneels in front of the tire and jerks the knife out in one swift move.

Damn.

His white T-shirt hugs his bicep, and, oh boy, he looks good tonight. I mean, he’s always had the whole Liam Hemsworth thing going on, but tonight he looks even hotter than a movie star. His hair is the perfect dirty blonde and his eyes are brightest green I’ve ever seen. Don’t even get me started on his smile. Shoot, any girl would agree to whatever he wanted just to see it one more time. I would know. I’ve been that girl.

Tyler gives the knife to me and mouths “run.” We don’t hesitate in the slightest.

I tuck the knife into my back pocket as I duck to run. The tire is successfully slashed, and I’m not leaving any evidence of my crime at the scene.

Hunching behind her car, Beth shoots daggers from her eyes as she stares at me. The look is so intense, I need something else to focus on.

Yes, this crack on the sidewalk is a nice distraction.

“I can’t believe you,” she seethes.

“It’s fine. No one saw us but Tyler,” I say just as Jace begins shouting a string of curses.

Jackass.

“I should have known you were going to do something crazy tonight. You made breaking up sound so simple,” Beth adds.

I shrug and then we both hunker down tighter when the lights of Tyler’s truck flash our way. I crawl around the front of the car and watch them turn the corner.

Then, I start to laugh.

Beth is still glaring at me. Only now she’s standing with her hands on her hips and looking at me like my mom would when I’d come home past curfew, before she decided she didn’t want anything to do with me.

The whole picture makes me laugh even harder. Slowly, Beth’s lips begin to tug into a smile.

“You are out of control,” she says and unlocks her car.

“There is nothing wrong with that,” I tell her.

Exclusive Excerpt:

Beckett focused on her, the impact of that deep brown gaze setting off a sizzle of heat in Sierra’s belly. His quiet intensity drew her with a power she wasn’t strong enough to resist.

Against her will, her gaze dipped to his mouth. His features were harsh, even foreboding, but his mouth looked so soft. She’d imagined those full lips on hers so many times, wondered if his quiet intensity would translate to the bedroom.

She was willing to bet it did.

The thought made her heart skip and her blood race, imagining what it would feel like to be on the receiving end of that intensity in bed. To feel that hard, powerful build against her, on top of her. His strong, capable hands holding her in place as he caressed and licked every sensitive spot on her body, then driving into her with urgency. Something told her Beckett would be unlike any other lover she’d had.

He wouldn’t be emotionally closed-off then.

Title: Our Final Tale
Series: Iron Fury MC #6
Author: Bella Jewel
Genre: Romance
Release Date: September 24, 2018
Blurb
SLATER
For over a
decade I searched for her. 
She
disappeared a long time ago. 
But I never
gave up.
Seeing her
again, it was the only thing that kept me holding on for so long. 
Clutching
onto the small chance that she might know who I am when I found her
again. 
If I found her again. 
It was
always a big if. 
But I
wasn’t going to rest until I got answers, alive or dead, I would find her.
I needed to
know what happened to the girl who took my heart when we were younger, and kept
it for well over a decade. 
She owns
every single piece of who I am. 
Nobody else
has ever come close. 
And now
I’ve found her.
And she’s
lookin’ at me like she doesn’t know who I am. 
Like I
wasn’t her first kiss. 
Her first
boyfriend. 
Her first
love.
Her first
heartbreak.
The man who
took her innocence. 
The man who
destroyed her, and caused her to run. 
The man who
spent ten years trying to find her, because of one pathetic, pitiful
mistake. 
I ruined
her. 
And now she
has no idea who I am. 
Not a
single damned clue. 
ELLIE
I don’t
know who he is. 
And yet
something about him seems strangely familiar. 
I know
nothing of who I am. 
All my
memories are like hazy nightmares. I don’t know which ones are real and which
ones are fake. 
I don’t
even know my own name. I don’t know anything about my past. 
I only know
that for the last ten years, I’ve been Raven. 
Only that
isn’t my real name.
But that’s
what he called me.
The monster
who owned me. 
The monster
disguised as a saint. 
A monster I
finally escaped.
And now
there’s him. 
Slater. 
A man who
claims to have spent the last decade searching for me. 
His
Ellie. 
He claims
I’m the love of his life. 
He’s
desperate for me to remember him. 
But I
don’t.
Even though
when I look into his eyes, I feel strangely at home. 
Like he’s
the missing piece of who I am. 
But can I
trust him?
Can I trust
the man who claims to love me, and yet is telling me he’s the reason for my
hell?
Who is
telling me, it is him, who destroyed me. 
Is he a
bigger monster than the one I just escaped from?
