Between Brothers by A.J. Downey #ReleaseBlast @MJsBookBlognR

Title: Between Brothers
Series: The Sacred Brotherhood Book IV
Author: A.J. Downey
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: May 9, 2017
Cover designed by: Dar Albert from Wicked Smart Designs
Reckless, dangerous, and out of control; these are the words most often applied to the SHMC’s brother Duracell. Which is why no one can understand what the deal is between him and Blue. Blue is none of those things; if anything he’s quiet, shy, and as mild-mannered as they come. There’s no balance between these two yet they are inexplicably a team. Then Blue gets a single look at Hayley, and it’s all it takes for him to know she’s their third.

Is Hayley the woman for them? A match for Blue sure, but strong enough to withstand the bizarre tempest of Cell’s personality? The two MC brothers have set their sights on the waitress and have been patiently feeling her out. Now it’s time to take the next step and see if she’s indeed able to date the both of them.

She’ll either bring balance to the boys, or Cell’s pull will knock them all off balance and send them crashing, burning them all out before anything can even fully ignite

Hayley was asleep, her back rising and falling gently in the
morning light. Cell was awake on the other side of her, looking at her, the
calculation back on his face and I was nervous. It was like he was on the fence
and I was waiting for a final decision. Did he like it enough last night to
want to keep her, or was he of the opinion to throw her back, like some fish
he’d caught that wasn’t satisfying enough?
“She’s got a pussy with a GI-Joe Kung-Fu grip,” he muttered
and I tried not to laugh. She was laying on me, and laughing would wake her.
Shit! I lost the battle and she stirred.
“Morning,” Cell grated and Hayley inhaled sharply.
She cuddled into my side a little more and I felt her lips
curl into a smile against my skin. She kissed my chest and looked up looking
like the cat who’d gotten the cream and said, “Good morning.” I could tell that
Cell was pleased with Hayley and wanted to do more with her by what he said
next.
“Look at you shattering all those inhibitions.” He even
sounded complimentary.
I smiled to myself, the happiest I’d been for a while, and
hugged Hayley against me, pleased when Cell grinned and nipped her shoulder
before springing up into a sitting position. He scooted to the end of the bed
and stood up. Lean muscles stretched and showed off to spectacular effect,
leaving Hayley and me both staring with admiration. Cell had a great body, and
one that he didn’t have to particularly work for outside of our day job.
“You both want we should go again right now?” he asked and
Hayley blushed, but didn’t look away.
“I’m starving,” she said and Cell gave a crooked grin.
“Well, get dressed. Sunday breakfast is probably still going
on out there and we can spend the day together. Maybe go for a ride or
something.”
“My bike is back at Hayley’s,” I said.
“Shit, yeah, I saw her cage out there when I came in last
night.”
“That’s okay,” Hayley piped up. “I mean, we can go get it. I
can dress warmer…”
“Yeah?” Cell asked, making sure.
“Yeah.”
He nodded and smiled, “Alright then.”
We got dressed, and Hayley looked beautiful with her hair
tousled by sleep and sex. I handed her a comb after running it through my own
short hair and apologized that I didn’t have anything better. She smiled and
laughed slightly.
“Its fine,” she said and went to her down jacket, getting her
hairclip out of her pocket. She stood in front of the dresser mirror and combed
through her long hair patiently, before gathering it into a ponytail. I watched
her, fixated, the way her sweatshirt hung artfully off one shoulder, the way she
swept up her hair, the elegant line of her neck revealed…
We’d shared something last night. Something deep and personal
and I cherished it. I cherished her. I never wanted to let her go. I knew what
this was. I’d felt it once before and I looked at Cell, the only other person
I’d felt it for. He lifted one side of his mouth in a sardonic smile and shook
his head at me. He knew. He knew, too, but he also was letting me have this.
Gratitude swamped me and I felt the urge to go to him and kiss
him. I’d had that urge a time or two in the past when it’d come to him. Only
tried the one time, the first time, and had had my ass beat for the trouble.
Instead, I pulled the treasure that was Hayley into my arms. She looked up at
me and smiled, a light of happiness in her eyes.
I bent and kissed her, putting everything into it that I was
feeling at that moment, pleased that I completely stole her breath away.
I raised up so that I could see her face, and her eyes were
closed, her body relaxed, and her expression one of concentration. As if she
were committing the feel of my lips, this moment, to memory.
She was so the right girl…
“Hey, no way I can top that… I’ll get mine later.” Cell said,
holding up his hands when Hayley turned to him. She smiled, and picked up her
shoes, going to the bed to sit on its edge to put them on.
I looked at Cell and he gave me a still look back. He wasn’t
in the mood for contact that wasn’t on his terms today. I could respect that.
Hayley, I worried, wouldn’t understand it. So, we had to work together to
strike a balance, for now…
Cell pulled his shirt over his head and down over his belt
line and sat down to pull on his boots. I pulled on mine and we were just about
out of here. I held out Hayley’s coat for her and she shrugged into it. I
looped her scarf around her neck and pulled her in pecking her on the nose and
she laughed.
“Come on you two, I believe the lady mentioned she was
starving and I’m not far behind her.” Cell tossed me my jacket and cut, his
already on, and opened up my door, ushering us out into the hall with a wave of
his hand. Hayley paused before going through and reached out, laying a hand
along Cell’s face. He flinched slightly, but she didn’t take notice. I saw it
though, a slight movement, a tightening of the muscles around his eyes, his jaw
clenching slightly.
“Thank you,” she murmured and he smiled, all charm and turned
his face, pressing his mouth to the center of her palm and giving it a quick
peck.
“No problem,” he said and Hayley stepped past him the rest of
the way. I gave him a nod and he gave one back and we went to breakfast. He
even sucked it up and held her other hand as we walked from the barracks to the
back door of the club.

In The Series

 

Melody Beswick thought she was
bringing herself and her thirteen month old son home to his father. It was her
last ditch effort to make a better life for her and her boy. One in which Noah
had a father to look up to and guide him. While she knew Grinder wasn’t perfect,
she believed in him, and love always found a way, right?Melody never thought her dreams for herself and her son could twist into such
nightmares, and that it was so true, the old adage, that the road to hell is
paved with good intentions. She’s about to find out that another adage is true,
that sometimes it’s better the devil you know, when instead of finding Grinder,
it’s his cold and critical brother Archer at the end of her long drive that she
must contend with.

With no other options, and no place else to go, Melody is about to make a deal
with this devil that she can’t refuse. Who knew it could, quite possibly, be
the best decision she’s ever made?

Fate introduces people at both the right and the wrong times…
So it is for Maren on the absolute worst day imaginable. When all hope was gone, and she was whittled away to little more than tears and despair, up walks Nox, an unlikely hero to save the day. Maren is about to discover that sometimes the good guys wear black, and there are times that the lines between good and evil blur beyond recognition.
Nox is a bad man with a heart of gold, or so it seems. It also seems that Maren has captured that heart with her wide, tear filled brown eyes. Nox never saw himself going for jailbait before, but that’s just what Maren is, all woman trapped in a seventeen year old package. Still, what he wouldn’t do for her, including taking on the unlikely role of keeper to her unruly preteen brother.
This mess could end beautifully or in some serious time spent behind bars for Nox, but sometimes, it’s worth risking it all.

Rush had always been the brother that was the most up for adventure. Then Grinder died and he realized that it was time to slow down. Fast-forward by a year and more and his older brother Archer had found Mel. Hell, his own twin was with a woman of his own! Rush is starting to get restless again, which was just perfect. Cue a string of anonymous hook-ups and one night stands. It was enough to feed the restlessness for a while, then an adventure of sorts came a callin’ by way of the VP’s estranged aunt and the President’s sister-in-law.
Her daughter was in need of some kind of white knight, which Rush could care less about, but the white knight routine did come with a pretty big perk. It would mean that he got to go back to a job that had, once upon a time, felt like a calling.
Of course, nothing was ever easy where Rush was concerned, especially when he actually set eyes on the damsel in distress. One, she wasn’t some paper princess, and two, she definitely didn’t want him around. After all, one-night hook-ups were supposed to be just that… one and done.

With My Whole Heart by MariaLisa deMora #BookBlast #ReleaseBlast @MJsBookBlognR @MariaLisadeMora

 

 


Title: With My Whole Heart


 

Author: MariaLisa deMora

 

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

 

Release Date: March 20, 2017

 

 


With My Whole Heart is
a complicated story about family.

Jaime’s a young, single mother who is trying to make ends meet, feeling like
she’s always waging an uphill battle to make sure she and her son are housed,
fed, and healthy. Connor’s designed his life to stay too busy for
relationships.

How complicated is it?

She’s his big brother’s surrogate, and he’s the sperm donor. How in the hell
would this ever work? Connor didn’t know, but he was determined to convince the
feisty little blonde to take a chance on him. What he didn’t realize was it
meant taking a chance on himself, too.

Caution: This isn’t an MC story. If you’re looking for grit, you’ll need to get
your hard on somewhere else. No one gets kidnapped or assaulted in this one. Or
even runs around without underwear on, I mean … the hero wears boxers at one
point. Come on! It’s like I don’t know the me who wrote it. Plus it’s super
sappy in places, and an unusual story setup. It’s not a feckin’ unicorn, but
it’ll do.

“This book has a special place in my heart. I
was pulled in from the first words to the last. I love when a story calls to my
heart, when you can honestly relate to the characters.” – Shay from Mommys a Book Whore
 
“This author’s writing is just so sublime –
the hard edges of the brittle life she depicted through clipped dialogue and
terse prose in Bones being smoothed out and rounded eloquently into this
intimate romance, centred as it is around warm, loving people who care so
deeply for one another.” – Carcoura LaRomantique, Goodreads review
 
“This book is epically brilliant. Between her
genius little boy and her tough backbone, you can’t help but admire Jaime.” – Angela, Goodreads review

 

 

“I
finished reading with a smile on my face and joyful heart.
I recommend to all who want a story full of emotions and good feelings.” – Lu Bielefeld *Book Whore Brazil*

 

From
Chapter 6
Connor
Standing
just around the corner from the living room, Connor was glad no one had heard
him come in the front door.
Marie and
Cooper both knew where he stood on this meeting, and it wasn’t in favor of it
at all. If they’d seen him, they would have clammed up, afraid to set him off.
He was excited about them having another baby, knew it was something Marie had
dreamed of nearly since Sam was put in her arms.
With a
gestational carrier, he had no worries there. There was absolutely nothing to
tie the baby back to the womb that nurtured during the pregnancy. Needing an
egg donor, well, he got that it took two to tango, and with Marie’s eggs not an
option, a donor was necessary. But he’d urged them to do a blind donation, not
someone you had to look in the face for nine months. Sperm donor, also a
necessity, and one he was honored his brother had asked him to do again.
Connor
didn’t get confused, though, didn’t have any issues with Sam calling him Uncle
Con. Never thought of the boy as his child. Sam was Cooper’s kid, end of story.
This, though? Having the egg donor and carrier in one person and then getting
to know that person intimately? Mistake.
That was
how he’d felt until five minutes ago, at least.
Hearing
this woman express sorrow at the death of someone she never knew shocked him,
but her sincerity couldn’t be questioned. She sounded like she knew how it
felt, and the genuine sadness in her voice picked at the scar he carried inside
him.
When Cole
had died, he’d known it. The minute it happened, he’d felt it. That damn
psychic tie so many twins had that he and science couldn’t explain. The echo
that had been so strong between them, always. Bicycle wrecks and broken hearts,
everything had been shared between the two of them.
It meant
the very instant his brother was no longer breathing on this earth had branded
in his brain. Connor had been on the basketball court, taking a class of
freshmen through a new set of drills when it felt like his heart exploded. He’d
fallen to his knees, hands clutching his chest, silent in the face of an
overwhelming pain. Scared the fuck out of the kids. They’d thought Coach was
having a heart attack, and two of them had dialed 911, calling the sheriff to
the school before he could stop them, leaving Connor to have to try and explain
something he couldn’t even put words to.
Four days
later, when the same sheriff came visiting they’d shared a knowing look. It
wasn’t news to Connor that Cole was gone. Not to him. The silence in his head
was enough proof for him.
If I’d
gone in the military with him, I would have been there. Could have saved him.
That was the only thing he and his twin had ever really argued about, and in
the end, Cole’s driven need to protect and serve had won out, separating the
two men for the first time in their lives.
Connor
hadn’t felt the same calling, though. Cole had enlisted and headed to boot
camp, and Connor had gone to college instead.
He
listened to the murmur of voices grow softer, more distant and knew Cooper,
Marie, and the woman had gone into the kitchen. Connor had been supposed to
meet her, not understanding why Cooper wanted him to have a face to go with the
carrier’s name, Jaime Grimes, but he’d been willing to go along with it. He’d
laughed and told his brother, “Least I can do.”
Connor
lifted a hand, knuckles grinding roughly across his sternum, accepting the pain
as his due.
Knowing
this woman standing in his big brother’s kitchen understood about loss, too, he
couldn’t go in there. Couldn’t face her, afraid she’d see the guilt he tried to
keep buried. If I’d been there.
Turning
on his heel, he stalked to the door and went out, closing it soundlessly behind
him.

Self-described as a book-a-holic, she says “I’ve always loved to read, but then I discovered writing, and found I adored that, too. For reading … if nothing else is available, I’ve been known to read the back of the cereal box.”

A hockey fan, hiker, gamer, and single mom of a special needs son, she embraces her inner geek and has been working in the tech field for a publishing company for a couple decades.

Music is a driving passion, and she says, “I love music of nearly any genre — jazz, country, rock, alt rock, metal, classical, bluegrass, rap, hip hop … you name it, I listen to it. I can often be seen dancing through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars [read: small, intimate venues]. If said bar [venue] has a good selection of premium tequila, then that’s a plus!”

Unwillingly thrust into a land of rival cartels and underbelly empires, four complete strangers must battle their darkest demons and those chasing them if they want to survive.

For Laila, her unwitting mistake set the wheels in motion where good and evil would collide in the most vicious of ways. 

For Danny, losing the love of his life so violently would take him on a path of retribution and heartbreaking humility.

For Anna, she had always been a target, a lamb hunted by its prey.

For Sofia, she was simply beautiful collateral damage, the result of a tragic betrayal.

Each stranger has their own story, one so utterly devastating and empowering. When their stories cross paths allegiances are formed and war is waged. The Florez Cartel had conquered many battles, but this, they never saw coming. 

Payback is a deadly game.


One look and I became his. One look and I didn’t even think to run. Just one look, and Juan Florez had found his golden ticket. On the wrong side of town in a drug fueled heartland, I went in search of my younger brother, Ethan. What I would find was something belonging to nightmares. What I would lose would unknowingly become my fight for survival. An escape from the clutches of evil seemed almost an impossible task. Warring with Mexico’s leading cartel would only see me closer to my grave. Or worse, used as a bargaining chip to seal a sickening deal my brother had played a part in. But then there was one man who ruled over me. A man who promised to destroy my world at every turn. Juan Florez. Taking on the notorious cartel son was a battle I was bound to lose.

To hunt or to be hunted? When you escape Mexico’s leading cartel, expect retribution. When you escape from Juan Florez, a man who lives for the thrill of the chase, expect to run from the shadows that follow your every move. I was “his”. He craved and demanded my fear. He destroyed me in every way he enjoyed. It was power. Seduction. I could run. I could hide. But for how long? He had one objective and that was to reclaim his prize, even if it meant putting to rest the one man who stood in his way. Aiden. His brother. When yesterday I had nothing to lose and today I have everything to keep, can I trust the very man whose family of monsters is now chasing me?



●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●




Monsters…. They are real. They watch you from their safe place, taunting, knowing. They breathe down your neck and chase you in your dreams. You wake, but they are still there. Saving everyone was impossible. The destruction, heartbreaking. One man was to blame. Anna knew he was there. His eyes following her every move, his presence beckoning a fate she needed to escape. This was a war where good never stood a chance. Danny knew he was a target, trapped in a place that would bring him to his knees, survival holding no promises. How do you win a battle that was lost from the very beginning? Monsters… They will destroy you.

He smiles. Winks. Eyes glistening an evilness known to no other. And then… I lose everything. It takes a heartbeat. A silent promise. A guarantee that it’s all only just the beginning. Everyone has a story. Mine is one I don’t want to remember. Deceived by those closest to me, I was thrown deep into a world of violence, corruption and trafficking. The dark, sinister world belonging to one Hector Florez, Mexico’s leading cartel boss. What he wants is control. What I crave is freedom. They say everyone has an angel watching over them, protecting. Me? I had my very own demon.
