Blog Tour: The Accidental Girlfriend by Emma Hart

TAGlive2

The Accidental Girlfriend, an all-new hilarious romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is available now!

THE ACCIDENTAL GIRLFRIEND - DRAFT1 (1)

Top Tip: Don’t put out an online ad offering your services as a fake date. Someone will take you up on it.

And it won’t just be for one night.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I ended up being Mason Jackson’s fake girlfriend.

He didn’t even want me to be. No—his sister was solely responsible for me being his date for his ten-year high school reunion.

Now, she’s responsible for telling his parents our relationship is real.

We have no choice. We have to act like this isn’t all a mistake, like it’s not all fake, like we’re totally, completely, utterly, head-over-heels in love with each other.

Simple, right?

Wrong.

💖Melena’s Reviews💖

Get ready for a laugh your ass off story by Emma Hart that will hurt your jaw from laughing so much. I loved that Lauren is not your typical girl but one that is independent, strong and a take charge kinda girl. Now Mason have to say at times can seem weak but only when it comes to family. Emma Hart is a genius when it came to the family so hillarious loved it.

“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.”

Excerpt:

“I’ve seen you eat nothing but junk. Are you one of those irritating people who can eat what they want and put on no weight?”

“Okay, first.” I held up one finger. “You look like you could walk into the cast of the Avengers, so don’t come at me with that. Also, I run. Every day. And I don’t always eat junk.”

“You run?” His eyebrows shot up.

“I don’t know if I should be insulted or not.”

“No, I just—you don’t look like a runner.”

“And you don’t look like Chris Hemsworth, but here you are on my sofa looking like a dark-haired Norse god,” I shot back. “What’s your point?”

He held up his hands, fighting another laugh, one that made his eyes shine. “Hey, I have a physical job. I rarely get to the gym, but I’m always moving.”

“Have you ever worked behind a bar? I’m not exactly running a call center back there. It never stops sometimes.”

“Do I look like I mix cocktails?”

Doing what he’d done just minutes before, I took a long, hard look at him, from head to toe.

It was a mistake.

If I were a sloth, I wouldn’t just climb him like a tree; I’d hang off him for a nap, too.

Lord, he was hot.

Focus, Lauren.

“No,” I said. “You look like the lone wolf who waits for the cocktail-drinking girls to accidentally spill their drinks on your shoes.” I glanced at the time. “Speaking of, I have to go and make those cocktails.”

Mason grinned. “You want me to come and get hit on by drunk girls?”

“As someone who has no say in your life whatsoever, I don’t care what you do.” I stood up and looked at him over my shoulder. “As your fake girlfriend, I’m a bit of a tiger, so I wouldn’t.”

“I know.” He snorted, following me to the front door with his laptop tucked under his arm. “I’ve seen you play the possessive girlfriend. If this weren’t all fake, I would have been a little turned on.”

I locked the front door and tossed my hair over my shoulder. “Please. You were totally turned on.”

He said nothing as we headed for the stairs.

“You can say something. That was a joke.” I glanced at him, heat rushing to my cheeks.

His lips pulled into a smirk, eyes flashing. “I reserve the right to not respond.”

💖Melena’s Reviews💖

Welcome to Loveless, Texas where after years of bad protection it takes a hot, up to the law man like Case Lawton to go for protection. Then we have a beautiful, sexy and smart lawyer go up against the new sheriff. This is actually the first time I have read of Jay Crownover and boy I am hooked. What got me was seeing Aspen still inside be the same shy stranger she was as a teenager waiting for her hero crush to really look at her. Now Case, man when he’s made a mistake he shows he can man up and find fault. The love might not be there right away but Jay Crownover sure makes it brew hot and passionate. This is one series you don’t want to pass right now, loved it.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“She’s it for me, Dad,” I say. My dad blinks, his eyes widening and then a smile slowly spreads on his face, but it won’t last long. “She has something ugly in her past, she’s hiding it from me,” I admit.

My dad’s smile falters, then his lips press close together. He takes a step toward me, his hand lifting and grabbing hold of my shoulder with a squeeze. “You think your mama didn’t come from somethin’ real ugly?” he asks.

I gulp, nodding my head as I think about Rylan’s drug addict father, who so happens to be my mama’s brother.

“You ain’t gonna fix her, not ever. Don’t try. But you know what you can do? You can love her. You can show her that her past doesn’t define her future, that she can live a good clean life at your side. Just love her, even when it’s hard, even when shit gets really fuckin’ ugly, because it will,” he says, his voice is like steel, his body held tight like granite.

This man has experience. He knows what I’m getting ready to involve myself in and he’s not warning me to run.

“Love her,” I repeat.

I do, fucking hell I’m falling in love with her, every second of every day I fall a bit farther. I didn’t think it was possible, didn’t think that I would ever find someone, but there is something different about her. Something intriguing, sexy and wonderful.

“Love her,” he repeats back. “Don’t give up, even when she pushes you away, and she will. Call me, I’m here for advice if you ever need it, son.”

THE KISS PLOT by Nicole French – RELEASE BLAST

 

Jane and
Eric de Vries.
Often
enemies. Sometimes lovers.
Husband and
wife. Or are we?
I wore the
dress. We said the vows.
And somehow
it became more than just a stunt to collect his billions.
A promise
bound by love, not hate.
Until he
humiliated me in front of all of New York and disappeared.
Now my
errant husband has returned, and it’s like I never existed.
Except when
he looks at me like he wants to rip my dress from my body.
Something’s
holding him back. And I won’t rest until I discover its cause.
See, this
wild heir is about to find out: karma’s a fickle mistress.
My weapons?
Batting eyelashes, high heels, and that red lipstick he can’t resist.
I’ll break
down his mask, little by little. And then I’ll make him pay for what he did.
I just need
to keep my heart in check while I do it.

Unfortunately
for this wayward heir, to keep his money, he needs a wife.

Too bad I’ve
hated him for five years, since he took all my tears and tossed me away. The
guy slept his way through half of New England and discarded women like hotel
toiletries.
Been there.

Still…what
would you do for twenty million dollars?
Would you

Fake a smile
for the man who broke your heart?

run far, far away?

what I thought.
I’ll see you
at the church.

RELEASE BLITZ – Wreck My World by Victoria Ashley

 

 

Title: Wreck My World
Author: Victoria Ashley
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 25, 2019
Blurb
“The feeling I
have in this very moment, after not seeing her for so long, will haunt me
forever, reminding me why I left to begin with.”
For as long as I can remember, Easton Crews has been
off-limits. As much as it kills me, that’s never going to change.
After his little disappearing act three years ago, then
suddenly showing up out of nowhere, I shouldn’t want anything to do with
him.
It doesn’t matter how beautiful he still is. Or how close we
once were. It shouldn’t matter that my entire body lights on fire with need
whenever he gets close.
He chose the worst possible time to leave without so much as
a goodbye.
However, just like the first day he walked into our home,
I’m drawn to him, needing him near me just as badly as I need air to breathe,
and I can’t stand it.
I want to hate him. I know I should hate him. But
hating him is the last thing he’ll let me do.
I push, he pulls harder, until I’m completely wrapped up in
him, my mind lost in the one person who is forbidden—the one person I’ve always
loved, even when he belonged to someone else.
Easton was never meant to be mine. It took me years to come
to terms with that and now that I finally have, he’s here, right in front of
me, more irresistible than ever.
The part I fear the most about that—he’s the one person
capable of completely wrecking my world.
“I’m not leaving
until you take all of your hate out on me. Let me feel it. All of it. Every
dirty look. Every nasty word. I will have it all before I leave. Stop hiding
from me.”

Excerpt
She stops and turns around when she hears my boots crunching
in the gravel behind her. The cold look in her eyes is
almost enough to freeze my damn heart. “Don’t you dare follow me, Easton.
Turn back around and go inside.” With pained eyes, she points at the building
and screams. “GO!”
After yelling at me, she immediately turns back around and
starts walking again to get away from me.
Ignoring her demand, I stalk toward her, wrapping my arm
around her waist right as she attempts to straddle her motorcycle.
“You’re not driving home,” I say, while squeezing her waist
and pulling her against me. “I get that you want fast right now. That you need
a rush to clear your head. Trust me, I know you. I’m the one that got you
addicted, but you’ve had too much to drink.”
“You don’t need to worry about what I do,” she growls out in
anger, before elbowing me in the stomach in an effort to get away. “Dammit! Let
me go. I need to leave. I can’t be here.”
She’s still trying to fight me, so I carefully lower her to
the gravel and trap her under my body, pinning one of her legs underneath mine.
“Give me your keys,” I growl, an inch away from her lips. “Don’t make me force
them out of your hand. I can pin you under my body all night if I fucking have
to, Kota.”
“Yeah, I don’t think my brother would like that much.” She
attempts to buck me off with her hips, but it does nothing.
I smirk down at her and push my hips closer against her
body. “Fight me all you want. I’ll win.”
“Fuck you, Easton!” Breathing heavily, she lays still and
fights to control her breathing from below me. After a few seconds, her eyes
meet mine, and she grins. “Fetch.” She tosses her keys across the parking lot
and then pushes my chest, speaking against my lips. “Now. Get. Off.”
I release a hard breath and take a moment to analyze her
face. It feels like forever since I’ve seen it.
Her big, gray eyes are framed by long lashes and her dainty,
freckled nose is now pierced and flaring out in anger.
Catching me off guard, she pushes her way out from under me
and closes her eyes as she runs her hands over her face and lays back. “Just
leave me be. I don’t want to be anywhere near you. I’ll have Hope take me
home.”
“You really mean that?” I question with a tight jaw. “You
still hate me after three damn years?”
“How can I not?” she bites out, before jumping to her feet,
ignoring my hand as I reach it out to help her. “You tore my heart out. Now get
out of my way.”
I bite my lip, holding in my anger as she pushes past me and
disappears inside.
I’m still standing out here with my hands in my hair when
she walks back out a few minutes later following Hope to her old, beat-up
truck.
My heart pounds relentlessly as I watch them hop inside and
drive away.
You tore my heart out.
Those five words hurt like hell. She’s always been good at
making me feel.

THE TWO-WEEK ARRANGEMENT
By Kendall Ryan
Release Day: June 4

About the Book

Dear Sexy AF Intern,

I know you don’t particularly care that I’m the CEO of this company, and you’re just an intern. I also know you’re not impressed by my power or my wealth, and that’s fine.

You think you’ve got me all figured out from working alongside me for two weeks, but you don’t know me. Not really.

You don’t know that I’m a single dad to twin toddlers, or that those two little girls matter more to me than this entire hotel chain.

I’m not interested in starting something deep and meaningful, but what I am interested in is the way your body reacts to mine when we’re in the same room. You probably assume the concentration on my face is work-related, when in reality, I’m figuring out which I want more–to nail you against the wall, or to bend you over my desk.

While you’re too disciplined to act on it, I’m not. And the night you stepped into my limo, all bets were off.

Excerpt

“But we were already hanging out,” Mallory reminded him and the look Sam gave her bordered on hysterical. “What? What’s so funny?”
“We all know I’m the third wheel here and the two of you would like nothing more than to be alone, so…I’m leaving,” he said, walking back into the kitchen to put the beer back in the refrigerator. “I’m gonna go home and tell Mom what the plan is–I’m going out to be a good cousin, while you’re here doing…I don’t know…Jake.” He winked. “You two have fun!”
Jake knew he didn’t let out a breath until the back door closed and he saw Sam walk down the deck stairs from the living room window. “Well…that was…awkward.”
“Just a little,” Mallory agreed. “Ugh…why is my brother such a dork?”
Laughing, Jake shifted them until her head was on his shoulder. “I wouldn’t call him a dork, he’s just a little…”
“He’s a dork. Trust me. We’re twins and I’m allowed to say it.” She shook her head. “He’s going to be snarky about this until he leaves.”
“About what?”
“You and me. Us. The fact that he knows what we’re doing.” She groaned. “Now, every time I mention seeing you or doing something, he’s going to make some sort of doofus comment about how I’m doing you. I’m telling you, he’s the worst.”
But Jake couldn’t help but laugh. He didn’t have any siblings so he didn’t understand the dynamics, but from where he was sitting, it was all pretty comical. The fact that they each other and had such obvious affection for each other was a pretty amazing thing. Maybe it was because they were twins or something. All he knew was that he hadn’t met many siblings with the kind of relationship Sam and Mallory had.
Plus, he liked knowing Sam looked out for her when he couldn’t.
And that one single thought had him going still.
This wasn’t going anywhere–this was about passing the time and getting her out of his system. He wasn’t supposed to be thinking about his feelings or hers. This was temporary. They both saw the end before they started up again, so why was he suddenly feeling concerned about how Mallory was going to be when he wasn’t around?
“Jake?” she asked softly, looking up at him. “You okay?”
He nodded. Right now, he didn’t want to talk. Hell, he didn’t want to think either. All he wanted was to feel–feel Mallory’s body against his. Feel her skin under his hands. Feel her breath mingling with his.
Standing, he gently tugged her to her feet before plunging his hands into her hair and giving her a searing kiss. If she was surprised by the sudden change of events, she didn’t show it. If anything, she kissed him back with equal abandon.
So good, he thought. Kissing Mallory was always so damn good…
When he had invited her to come home with him earlier–before Sam showed up–Jake envisioned them coming in and talking and maybe sharing some lazy kisses before he seduced her into staying the night. But as Mallory pressed up against him and purred, he was pretty sure nothing was going to be slow and lazy, and that he was the one being seduced.
And he loved every minute of it.
Without breaking the kiss, they maneuvered across the room and down the hall, stopping once so he could back her against the wall and grind against her. She tore her lips from his and sighed his name like a plea. Reaching down, Jake lifted her until her legs wrapped around his waist and it took every bit of self-control he possessed not to take her right then and there. Her dress was bunched up at her waist and the barely-there panties would be gone with only the slightest of tugs…
“Bed,” he growled against her throat even as he continued to rub against her. “I want you in my bed.”
“Then take me there,” she said breathlessly.
Easier said than done, he thought, forcing himself to walk the last ten feet to his room. At the side of the bed, he simply let himself fall and kept Mallory in his arms. They laughed and rolled until they were comfortable and then he sank back into the kiss.
Mallory tugged at his shirt and once she had it pulled free of his trousers, her nails scraped up his back and it gave him chills. Sitting up quickly, he ripped the shirt off–buttons flying in every direction.
“Wow,” she panted. “That was incredibly sexy.”
“Oh, yeah?” he asked, his own breath coming out roughly. “How do you feel about this?” His hand snaked under her dress and he tugged her tiny panties off–the sound of the fabric ripping seemed insanely loud in the room.
“Oh!” she cried as her hips bucked off the bed. Jake knew what she wanted and he was more than happy to give it to her.  In a flash her dress was off. He peeled her bra off with his teeth as she writhed beneath him. “Jake…”
Once he had her completely naked, his self-control completely vanished. His mouth and hands were everywhere. While he licked and suckled at her breasts, his hand was ruthlessly teasing her between her legs. Watching Mallory lose control was one of his favorite pastimes and as he urged her on, he knew it would always be this way. She cried out his name again and again and again and each time it ratcheted his own arousal up more and more.
He hated to move away from her even for a second, but he still had half of his own clothes to discard. Mallory reached for him as he moved away and he smoothed a hand across her stomach. “Soon,” he whispered. “I’m not going anywhere.”

Read an excerpt from REMIND ME

“But we were already hanging out,” Mallory reminded him and the look Sam gave her bordered on hysterical. “What? What’s so funny?”

“We all know I’m the third wheel here and the two of you would like nothing more than to be alone, so…I’m leaving,” he said, walking back into the kitchen to put the beer back in the refrigerator. “I’m gonna go home and tell Mom what the plan is–I’m going out to be a good cousin, while you’re here doing…I don’t know…Jake.” He winked. “You two have fun!”

Jake knew he didn’t let out a breath until the back door closed and he saw Sam walk down the deck stairs from the living room window. “Well…that was…awkward.”

“Just a little,” Mallory agreed. “Ugh…why is my brother such a dork?”

Laughing, Jake shifted them until her head was on his shoulder. “I wouldn’t call him a dork, he’s just a little…”

“He’s a dork. Trust me. We’re twins and I’m allowed to say it.” She shook her head. “He’s going to be snarky about this until he leaves.”

“About what?”

“You and me. Us. The fact that he knows what we’re doing.” She groaned. “Now, every time I mention seeing you or doing something, he’s going to make some sort of doofus comment about how I’m doing you. I’m telling you, he’s the worst.”

But Jake couldn’t help but laugh. He didn’t have any siblings so he didn’t understand the dynamics, but from where he was sitting, it was all pretty comical. The fact that they each other and had such obvious affection for each other was a pretty amazing thing. Maybe it was because they were twins or something. All he knew was that he hadn’t met many siblings with the kind of relationship Sam and Mallory had.

Plus, he liked knowing Sam looked out for her when he couldn’t.

And that one single thought had him going still.

This wasn’t going anywhere–this was about passing the time and getting her out of his system. He wasn’t supposed to be thinking about his feelings or hers. This was temporary. They both saw the end before they started up again, so why was he suddenly feeling concerned about how Mallory was going to be when he wasn’t around?

“Jake?” she asked softly, looking up at him. “You okay?”

He nodded. Right now, he didn’t want to talk. Hell, he didn’t want to think either. All he wanted was to feel–feel Mallory’s body against his. Feel her skin under his hands. Feel her breath mingling with his.

Standing, he gently tugged her to her feet before plunging his hands into her hair and giving her a searing kiss. If she was surprised by the sudden change of events, she didn’t show it. If anything, she kissed him back with equal abandon.

So good, he thought. Kissing Mallory was always so damn good…

When he had invited her to come home with him earlier–before Sam showed up–Jake envisioned them coming in and talking and maybe sharing some lazy kisses before he seduced her into staying the night. But as Mallory pressed up against him and purred, he was pretty sure nothing was going to be slow and lazy, and that he was the one being seduced.

And he loved every minute of it.

Without breaking the kiss, they maneuvered across the room and down the hall, stopping once so he could back her against the wall and grind against her. She tore her lips from his and sighed his name like a plea. Reaching down, Jake lifted her until her legs wrapped around his waist and it took every bit of self-control he possessed not to take her right then and there. Her dress was bunched up at her waist and the barely-there panties would be gone with only the slightest of tugs…

“Bed,” he growled against her throat even as he continued to rub against her. “I want you in my bed.”

“Then take me there,” she said breathlessly.
