Play it Again by Ashley Stoyanoff

Title: Play it Again
Author: Ashley Stoyanoff 
Series: PRG Investigatins #2
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Release date: August 4, 2015 
Ten days ago, someone threw a brick through my front window. Nine days ago, someone keyed my truck right in my driveway. Eight days ago, someone spray painted the words ‘stay away’ across my garage door. That one really pissed me off. The jerk didn’t even have the courtesy to tell me what the hell I need to stay away from.

Each day it’s something new, a new piece of my property vandalized, and I’ve had enough.

Wanting a security system, something with cameras so I can catch the vandal, I let my best friend hook me up with her cousin, a private investigator with the PRG Investigations team.

His name is Vance and I’ve secretly been in love with him for three years. He’s a badass, a little scary, incredibly hot, and he’s never showed an interest in me … until now.

     “You know,” Piper says, settling in, pulling her legs up under her. “I think this is exactly what I needed. I don’t remember ever feeling this relaxed. Not even in Mexico.”
     I laugh. “We’ll have to make this a regular thing then.”
     She looks at me, a tiny frown tugging her lips. “Do you do this a lot?”
     “Do what?” I ask curiously.
     “Make picnics and bring girls out here,” she asks, her voice hesitant, as though maybe she doesn’t actually want to hear the answer.
     I stare at Piper.
     She stares right back at me.
     Jesus, she sounds … jealous. She looks it, too.
     It’s a pretty look on her.
     Always so damn pretty.
     I grin at her, and then pull the lid off the cooler, reaching in and retrieving a beer.
     “You’re the first,” I say, twisting off the cap and handing it to her. “Don’t bring too many people out here, actually.”
     Her eyes widen. “What?”
     “You’re the first,” I say again, reaching over to her, lightly trailing the back of my knuckles along the curve where her neck and shoulder meets. It’s a barely there touch, but the contact makes her shiver and blush. “And I’ve never made a picnic for anyone before you either.”
     “I, uh, I …” her blush deepens and her voice wobbles. “Really?”
     She’s nervous and she takes a long pull from her beer.
     “Really,” I say, letting my hand fall away, wanting to put her at ease. I reach into the cooler, grabbing a beer for myself, twisting it open.
     When I glance back at her, she’s staring at me, confused, as though I haven’t answered her question at all, so I decide to elaborate.
     “This is my getaway, the place I come to clear my head. The guys come out with me every once in a while, but for the most part I keep the boat to myself. It’s … special to me, sacred even. I don’t bring just anyone out here.”
     “So it’s a special place,” she reiterates, surprised. “Your special place.”
     I take a pull from my beer. “Essentially, yeah.”
     My response relaxes her, and she beams at me as though being here makes her special, too.
     It does.
     She is special to me.

Release Day Blitz: Labeled Love by Danielle Rocco

Title: Labeld Love
Author: Danielle Rocco
Series: Labeled #1
Genre: Young Adult Romance
Release Date: August 6, 2015
I was twelve years old when I met him. I guess you could say opposites attract. We didn’t know it then. Or maybe we did, but we didn’t care. It’s not easy growing up in Los Angeles. Well, for me it was. But, not for him.

I’m a Hollywood girl born and raised in the business.
I have everything I’ve ever needed
and only wanted him.

Is it possible to find your forever love when you’re thirteen? Maybe not for most, but I did.
I’m just a boy raised in the pits of Los Angeles.
I have nothing
and only ever wanted her.

Worlds apart
Miles away

It would only be her
It would only be him

Labels never defined us
But will they tear us apart

     Jace grabs his sandwich, pops the rest into his mouth, and falls back onto the blanket, bringing me with him. "You make the best P&J's, baby." He pulls me on top of him again. My hair falls out of the loose bun I put it in, falling in my face. He reaches up, putting it behind my ears while looking at me.      He's not just looking, though. He's studying me. "You know how much you mean to me, right?" I wiggle on top of him. "Shay?" he says in a whispered tone.
     "What?" I whisper back.
     "You make me crazy."
     I frown. "I'm sorry if I upset you today..."
     He cuts me off as he pushes up into me.
     "I'm not talking about what happened today," he says, pulling me down to his waiting lips. Okay, he's definitely not talking about earlier. He moans against my mouth.
     "I want to be inside you ...right now."
     "I know you do. You already told me that," I say, laughing. He kisses me sloppily.
     "Jace! You taste like peanut butter, sloppy boy." I wipe my mouth. All right, I know what he meant, but I wasn't expecting what he just said. That was so sexy. God, why do I have to be a good girl? Any other girl I know would be pushing her bikini bottom to the side and letting him slide in.
     "Crazy is good right?" I reply.
     "Crazy is really good...

Release Day Blitz: Bad Intentions by Nacole Stayton

Title: Bad Intentions
Author: Nacole Stayton
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: August 6, 2015
She’s careful, but wants to be reckless.
She’s cute, but wants to be sexy.
She’s innocent, but wants to be bad.

When ex-Olympic gymnast, Adaley Knight wakes on her eighteenth birthday she only has one wish, to leave the only town she’s ever known and start fresh.

Finding herself enrolled at a college across the globe, the once modest Adaley is almost unrecognizable. Her new persona dances on the wild side by sinking her teeth into the first bad boy she sees. The only problem is he’s not the least bit interested.

Ryle Benson, baseball extraordinaire and brooding campus bad-boy keeps everyone at an arms length. Things have never come easy for him and the last thing he needs is getting involved with any female.

The tables are reversed as she tries to be bad, tempting fate, and he tries to fight his. The push and pull is half the fun. But what happens when one pushes a little too hard?

“Dare.” Ryle’s voice is cool, calm and collected as he mumbles his answer, like there isn’t another option.

“I dare you to—” Bradley’s interrupted by several females shouting in unison. “Take off your shirt!”

Ryle nods his head to the adorning crowd and grabs the rim of his shirt. Everyone with lady parts around the fire starts to drool. Me included. His movements are slow and sensual, and he doesn’t even bat an eye. Apparently removing an article of clothing in front of a crowd is a typical thing for him to do on a Saturday night. My needy eyes take notice to the “V” that waves hello to me as cloth is lifted from his body.

I melt.

Literally. My body fills like goo, and I wilt until nothing is left but a puddle of want and need.

“Ow ow.”


“Sexy beast.”

I feel like I need to wash my ears out. Rolling my eyes, I snatch Tank’s drink out of his hands and down it. Bottoms up.
