Jodi Ellen Malpas - One night bk 3 - Unveiled

Unveiled (One Night, #3)Unveiled by Jodi Ellen Malpas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

OMG I never thought I could love another trilogy as much as I loved This Man by this author, how incredibly wrong I was!
This series had me enthralled from book one... Every word ate up, every page turned faster then the last.

Being an avid reader from England but living in America when I read a book based out of England I always find myself thinking "well we don't talk like that" But Jodi had an amazing balance when writing about the seedy underworld of London.

Dealing with such dark and gritty issues, but at times having me laugh out loud so long I had to wipe away tears from laughter (Nan at Harrods with the pineapple) will stay with me for a long time lol.

Olivia was an awesome character with a damaged past. A woman with a hooker as a mother, a women she doesn't even know or recall that well. she finds it hard to become her own person. With constant reminders of how much like her mother she is and an increasing pull to a world she's trying to escape its a everyday battle in which her Taylor Sass serves her!

Her closed off world all changed when Miller arrived with a "boom" making everything seem brighter. The passion is hot, the attraction deep everything with them seems to be on borrowed time. One night was never enough but now with "interference" by others at every turn its getting harder to ignore and remain together.

Miller was pushed into the lifestyle he has, no joy came from it its a matter of survival. Now hes trying to escape these invisible chains and his painful past to be with the woman he loves, not an easy task, putting them both in danger. He knows he will protect Livy until his last dying breathe and it possibly may come to that.

This final installment has characters come back and family questions answered. This was a couple who's love overcome every obstacle it just couldn't be denied and made for awesome reading. I loved how the author brought everything together! It ended so well... I will miss these characters, I'm very sad to say goodbye... Maybe a spin off for Cassie and Tony??? ;) Just and idea.

#win!

As lead singer of the award winning rock band, Bent, Jase has everything he could possibly ever want at his fingertips.

The one dream he can’t seem to make come true. What happens when two people from different worlds meet and are thrust into unfamiliar and unsettling territory? Can Holly navigate the demands of dating someone with a high profile profession? Can Jase walk away from the only lifestyle he’s ever known for the first woman who’s ever made him want to? Promises are made, but can they keep them? *This book is a novella. 36,000 words **Can be read as a standalone but would be better enhanced to read in order with the series as characters and events cross over. ***For mature audiences due to graphic sex scenes and language. Promise Me_This kiss_teaser

Excerpt

To say I’m nervous is an understatement. I’ve slept with supermodels, actresses, and debutants with too much money, but for some reason, the thought of finally getting naked with Holly has me shaking in my black boots. I stare straight into her beautiful face. Her eyes are dilated and her breathing is still labored from the kiss. I don’t want to just rush her back to her bedroom, but I’m damn close to giving in to the craving. And that’s what she is. She’s a craving. She’s a drug. She’s my hit. I touch the soft skin of her cheek, caressing it while I gaze into her eyes. “I want to take you to your room right now, Holly. I want to shut that door, lock us away from the world, and do all of the things I’ve been fantasizing about for a month. If that’s not what you want, tell me now. I’ll kiss you goodnight right here in the living room and go to sleep on the couch. I’ll get up in the morning and we can continue to get to know each other via phone and text. If you don’t want to take this to the next step, I’m okay with that. It won’t scare me away or make me run. I just -” I get cut off as Holly’s sweet lips press firmly against mine. “I want to go to my bedroom. Right now. With you,” she whispers against my lips. My blood flares to life as I scoop her up in my arms. She doesn’t have to tell me twice. I want this more than she’ll ever know. In three strides, I’m rounding the corner and heading into Holly’s bedroom, her body tucked securely in my arms. I don’t stop until I’m lying her down on the bed. Her lips attack mine before I have the chance to pull away. She licks my lips as my hands dip under her black sweater. One touch of her stomach, the skin all soft and warm, has my blood boiling. My entire body is like a lit fuse, ready to blow. I savor the feel of her skin as I slowly make my way up to her tits. My fingers graze over lace as my mouth continues to consume her. I’m a man possessed. A moan rips from Holly’s throat as my hand grips her lace-covered tit. My mouth waters at the prospect of tasting them. I tear my mouth away from hers and stare down at her. Her hair is fanned out on the top of her comforter and her eyes are dilated so that I can’t even tell their color. Her breathing is coming out in quick little pants. I look down, squatting next to her on the bed. I focus all of my attention on the thin sliver of bare skin peeking out between her sweater and her jeans. I use both hands to slowly slide her sweater up until her marvelous chest is revealed. Holly is wearing a black lace bra and her nipples are strained against the tight, sexy material. My hands twitch and my cock jerks against my zipper. I can’t fight it any longer. My mouth descends on her a fraction of a second later. Her nipples are hard little nubs as I suck them through the lace and into my mouth. Her moan is like music to my ears. The best kind of music. Holly’s hands snake into my hair, holding me firmly against her heaving chest. Once I show plenty of attention to the first little pebble, I move on to the other. I squeeze and massage her tits as she withers underneath me. My cock is painfully hard, begging to be released from its denim prison. Once I’ve showered her chest with plenty of attention, I slowly kiss down her stomach. She sucks in air as I tickle my way down to the button of her jeans. With a quick flick of my fingers, her jeans are unsnapped. I look up one more time to gauge her response as I get ready to remove her pants. Her eyes are wild and lust filled. Her slightly open mouth is sucking in air like she hasn’t had a full breath in days. I see the trust in her eyes as I rake mine over her beautiful face. I slowly unzip her jeans and start to remove them. Black lace peeks out at me as I slowly pull down her pants. Torture. That’s what this woman is doing to me, but it’s the best damn torture I’ve ever experienced. When I finally get the jeans down past her thighs, the picture of Holly wearing black lace boy cut underwear greets me from the bed. The material is snug and wet at the apex of her legs. My mouth goes dry and my heart tries to do a fucking tap dance out of my chest. Once I get the jeans the rest of the way off, followed by her socks, I return my attention to that little slip of wet material. I slide my hands up her smooth, soft thighs as I slowly separate them. The scent of her arousal assaults me. I’m a drowning man, and she’s my last gulp of air. I need her that much. My hands find that black lace and slowly begin to stroke her through the material. Her moan is intense and fuels my already burning fire within. I can’t stop myself as I slide the material to the side, exposing her core for the first time. This moment is better than any fantasy I’ve ever had about her. This moment is real. This moment is forever. I bend down and run my tongue along her seam. She shudders and gasps under my touch. I waste no time as I pull her legs up, bending them at the knees and position myself between them. As I continue to lick and suck at her core, her legs wrap around my neck. Talk about a fucking turn on. I could explode right now in my pants. I use first one, then a second finger, and explore her. She’s warm and tight as I get to know her body. Her legs tighten around my neck as I bring my tongue back to the pulsing nub at her center. With a few hard flicks of my tongue as I continue to work her over with my fingers, she’s gasping for air and moaning her release. Her entire body is shaking, her insides gripping my fingers in the best way possible. After her body lays limp and sated on the bedspread, I finally glance back up at her. Her eyes are closed and her lips hold a slight, happy smile. Her arms are extended over her head which causes my body to practically spasm with excitement. I’ve had so many fucking fantasies about tying her up like that. “I’m not done with you yet,” I tell her as I hover over her.

Meda White

Ride With My Heart Ride With My Heart (Southland Romance Book 3) Maddie Baker is back at Southland, trying to put her life back together after her divorce. When she reconnects with her former rodeo partner, she struggles to keep the feelings she’s always had for him hidden. After all, it’s too soon, and she’d had a good reason for keeping her distance all those years ago. Georgia State Trooper Heath Cook has been avoiding Maddie since she moved home, knowing the crush he’s always harbored won’t stay hidden for long. If his wasn’t the only heart he cared about protecting, it might be different. But his daughter doesn’t need to get attached to someone on the rebound. Maddie and Heath’s renewed friendship leads to a deeper attraction than either of them imagined possible. But with Maddie’s jealous ex making a play to win her back, Heath has to decide if he’s willing to put his future on the line. And when Maddie’s past comes back to haunt her, it might be beyond Heath’s power to help. Together, they’ll have to see if they can hold on for the roughest ride of their lives. This contemporary romance contains Southern Gothic elements. Excerpt: Heath pulled back to look at her. “Reunion?” “I know you dated her in college.” Maddie watched his reaction in the glow of the moon. “How?” He squeezed her upper arms. “Because I called you and she answered the phone. She was happy to inform me I’d been replaced.” A knot formed in Maddie’s throat, and she looked down. “When? When did you call me?” His grip tightened. “When I needed a friend—” Her voice broke, and she turned her head away, hoping he wouldn’t catch the tear rolling down her cheek. He caught it in the pale light and wiped it away. “She lied. You’re irreplaceable, Maddie Baker. I’m sorry I wasn’t there for you. If I’d known—” “It was for the best really.” She forced herself to meet his gaze. “I needed to learn to survive without you.” “But it was hard just surviving each day.” He swallowed audibly. “Wasn’t it?” Heath’s hands moved to her back, and he pulled her closer to his warm chest. Maddie nodded because she couldn’t speak. She wanted to put the past behind her, but if she didn’t talk to Heath about it, it would come between them more than it already had.

Traumatized by her past, former police officer Jane Dillon gets a new start in Los Angeles as a bodyguard. If she weren’t so good at saving people, she might seek a new career.

Smiley360 post: REVIEW for WONKA RANDOMS

Thanks to Smiley360 I was sent Wonka Randoms in a free sample to try, in return give my honest opinion about the product. 

This product was a hit at my house! I have two children aged 4 and 8 they couldn't get enough of these yummy gummies. They declared Wonka Randoms the juiciest gummies EVER!
With 7 fruit flavors they both had their favorites and 70 different shapes it was fun identifying what each gummy was. 
As a parent I loved the fact that these candy treats where only 140 calories per serving and no artificial flavoring! I will definitely be buying these again   

The Gummies with the white bottoms where my favorite, extra chewy and fruity
