Review :: Grand Slam :: Heidi McLaughlin



Title: Grand Slam
Author: Heidi McLaughlin
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: May 23rd 2017






Win the game. Lose your heart.
Everyone knows who I am and that I could have any female fan I want. That's supposed to be the "perk" of playing left field for the Boston Renegades. But I don't want just any woman; I want her.


She should be just another face in the crowd, but I can't stop thinking about the one night we spent together-and her look of regret the morning after.

Because Saylor Blackwell is the kind of woman who haunts a man. Smart, sexy as hell, and one of the best managers in the business. She's every ballplayer's dream woman. And I'd do anything to make things right with her. 

I'm done sitting on the bench when it comes to Saylor Blackwell. Time to swing for the fences.

Review: 

I absolutely love how Heidi weaves her stories together with this amazing intricate details and then throws in twists when you least expect them. 

This whole book was like that. Surprise after surprise. They were like wonderful little gifts. 

I loved the scandal and the drama this book held. To read about two people who have been soo screwed over (and over and over) being able to find love, real and true love at that, was so refreshing. 

This book was super light on the baseball but that didn't bother me at all. This story was meant to focus on Saylor and Travis. Anything outside of their bubble would have taken away from the story. 


But oh man did I love this book. FIVE HUGE STARS

Excerpt

“I miss him.”
“I know.”
“He knew everything already, you know? It was easy to be myself around him.” I reach out and take my drink.
“But that’s not all, is it?” Jess challenges before sipping her wine. “The fact he knows what happened to you in school isn’t the only reason you miss him, is it?” She lowers her chin, levelling me with her gaze.
“No.”
I don’t even know how to describe it, that soulful connection you get with another. When I’m around him, nothing else bothers me. My world narrows when he’s in view, and I like how it feels to have those blinders on. It’s as though I’m focussing on the only things that matter: the people close to me.
“What if I misread him?” I ask. “What if he wasn’t that into me?”
“How many nights did he come over to see you at Kath’s?”
“Most of them.”
“How many times did he message you?”
“Every day.”
Jess glares, her lips curling up on one side. “Yeah, he wasn’t into you at all.”

Blurb

An NFL player with a secret past, and the one woman with the power to turn his world inside out…

Former actress Emma Rothschild is partying in Vegas in disguise. But I’m not fooled. Five years ago, I knew that body better than my own, and I haven’t forgotten a single detail—not the curve of her hip beneath my hand or the hitch in her breath when I kiss her neck.

When Emma’s unexpectedly left alone in Sin City, I agree to spend the weekend with her. As friends. Why not? If I can knock down the toughest guys in the NFL, I’m strong enough to keep my hands to myself, even if she is the sexiest woman I’ve ever met.

Emma is part of my past—years so shrouded in secrets that not even my best friends know the truth about who I am. I’m a single dad now and not interested in revisiting my old ways or trying to win back the only woman I ever let close enough to break my heart.

But this is Vegas, where all bets are off, and with Emma, nothing ever goes as planned…

Excerpt
  

“You’re too beautiful,” I tell her. I run my thumb along her jaw. “Too fucking beautiful.” 

“I’ve missed you. You’re the best man I’ve ever met.” 

My stomach clenches and I shake my head. “Don’t think that. It’s a lie. It’s what I wanted you to believe. Don’t bring that lie into tonight.” 

“How was it a lie?” She grins up at me, and I know a full confession would erase all the happiness from her face. 

“When we were together before, I wasn’t the man you thought I was. I wasn’t good.” It’s the closest to the truth I’ve ever given anyone about my past. 

“So you don’t want me believing you’re good?” 

I pull her hips tightly against me as I exhale in frustration. She still thinks this is some kind of joke. “I’m different now, but then…” 

She lifts onto her toes and flicks her tongue against my ear. “Don’t be so different. I like you a little bad.” 

I groan and stop dancing. I don’t know how much longer I can do this without diving over the line. “Is that permission to stop being your friend?” I’m obsessed with knowing if she tastes as sweet as I remember. And if I swipe my tongue over the sensitive spot beneath her ear, will she gasp like she always did? 

She shrugs and grins, and the dance floor tilts off balance. It’s crowded, and we’re surrounded by writhing bodies, cocooned in the crowd. I turn her in my arms so her back is to my front and settle my hand against the soft skin of her midriff. She arches her back and rubs against me. 

I sweep her hair to the side, and when I press my lips to the long, smooth column of her neck, she trembles against me. 

“Are you okay?” I ask against her ear. “Is this okay?” 

“I—I’m not sure…” 

“Tell me what you want. Not five years ago. Not tomorrow. What do you want right now?” 

She reaches back and threads her fingers through my hair to guide my mouth back to her neck. 

I don’t hesitate. I kiss and suck on that tender skin while we move to the beat. 

The rest of the room fades and one song blurs into the next. A waitress comes by selling shots, and I buy two, one for each of us, and we lock eyes as we throw them back. At some point, I’m vaguely aware of Bailey checking on me, but my focus is one hundred percent on Emma, on this night that takes me back to when I was eighteen and so fucking in love it hurt. Tonight, Emma isn’t the woman who once broke my heart. She isn’t the girl who wrote me off with a simple goodbye note and apologies I didn’t want. Tonight, she’s a dream, my fantasy in the flesh, my reward for surviving the hardest year of my whole life. 

When her face begins to blur, I realize I’m way more drunk than I ever intended. I need to sober up or I’m not going to remember a minute of this night. “Want to get out of here?” 

She nods, takes my hand, and leads me out of the bar and down the hall to the elevators. My watch reads a quarter past two. 

“Let’s get some food,” I suggest, but at the same moment, an elevator dings and the doors slide open. 

Emma grabs my hand and drags me inside. “I don’t want food,” she says, punching a button. 

I spin her around and press her against the wall. “What do you want, Em?” I drop my hand to her side to skim my knuckles over her skirt, and she widens her stance to part her thighs. “Fuck,” I whisper. I shouldn’t do this. Not here, not when any moment someone could join us on the elevator, not when we’re both so damn drunk it’s a wonder we can stand upright. But shouldn’t is so much weaker than want, and I want to touch her more than I want anything right now. 

I’m faintly aware of the soft beeping of the passing floors as I slide my hand up her skirt and cup her between her legs. She gasps, and I rub my fingers over the damp lace of her panties, teasing her swollen flesh.


When the elevator stops and the doors slide open, she grabs my wrist and holds me still. “Please,” she whispers in my ear. “Please. Don’t stop.” Then she tilts her hips and rocks against my hand. I couldn’t refuse her if every person in the hotel was watching us.

Now Live :: Sinful Rhythms :: Hazel Jacobs


Title: Sinful Rhythms (Book 4, The Black Lilith Series)
Authors: Hazel Jacobs
Release Date: April 28th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance | Erotica
Cover Design: Jesh Nima Designs



 

Tessa Hunt is a former English major and current barista who’s stuck working at Starbucks.

She’s got a huge family she loves, a pile of books in her ‘to be read’ pile, and a best friend she’s never met. D came into her life accidently via an X-rated picture sent to the wrong number one late night five months ago, and the pair of them have been trading texts and secrets ever since.

When D invites her to finally meet at a rock concert, in person, because he has a job opportunity for her, she discovers that her hilarious dorky best friend D is the world-famous Dash Todd, from Black Lilith.

The job he’s lined up for her is shadowing Black Lilith for their Sinful Rhythms tour and writing an article about them for Rolling Stone! That’s the sort of thing that launches careers. But when Tessa tries to coax Dash into a more serious relationship, she realizes that things aren’t as easy as she thought they would be.

Dash makes her weak in knees, but he goes cold the moment she tries to get serious. After so many years of effortless sex with groupies, she can hardly blame him for wanting to avoid commitment.

When another man vies for Tessa’s attention, she needs to decide whether to pursue a relationship with someone who is actually interested or to wait for her rockstar best friend.
