Bombastic #BookBlitz: How We Fall by Melissa Toppen

How We Fall
Melissa Toppen
Publication date: April 21st 2017
Genres: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance

It’s not always about how we fall- it’s about where we end up once we land.

I remember the very first time I laid eyes on Cole Lincoln. It still feels like yesterday when he stumbled into my life with his messy brown hair and dark eyes. Even though I was only ten years old at the time, I knew right then and there that he was going to change everything.

From that point on Cole and I were always together—inseparable—and I naively believed we’d be best friends forever. But forever didn’t last nearly as long as I expected.

We grew up and grew apart, life driving the distance between us, but my love for Cole never faltered. Even long after he moved away, leaving me and our little town behind, I still carried a piece of him with me every single day. Because Cole wasn’t just my childhood best friend- the boy who knew me better than anyone else in the whole world. He was also my first love- a part of my very core.

When a tragic death brings us face to face again after six years, every single memory comes rushing to the surface. Only this is not the boy I fell in love with all those years ago. The man before me is hardened, intimidating, and so damn sexy I practically melt when those dark eyes meet mine for the first time in six years.

And like the first time he walked into my life, I know with complete certainty that everything is about to change.

How We Fall is a STANDALONE Contemporary Romance.

Tingles rushed, my words nothing more than pants as he kissed down through the valley of my breasts. “Maybe you’re just remembering who you are. Who you were always supposed to be.”
I felt as if I was so close to knowing him. This boy who’s beauty had been muted.
He groaned, half pained, half demand. “You almost make me feel like him.”
Yanking me away from the railing, he hoisted me high. My legs were wrapped high around his chest as he carried me the rest of the way to the upper loft. To this magical place where twilight touched every corner, whispered its secrets and danced in its shadows.
He’d barely tossed me to the bed when he was over me, shoving up my dress and ripping it free, my fingers just as frantic as I tore his shirt over his head. I searched him, hands racing across his chest, feeling the wild beat of his conflicted heart, hearing the struggle that whimpered from his spirit.
He angled down and captured my mouth again. He kissed and bit and nipped as he held my face steady in the frame of his hands. Then he edged down, driving me wild with this murmurs of kisses at my jaw and ear and neck.
“Zachary…please.”
I writhed, dizziness rushing as I stared up at him towering over me.
His body was brimming with hard, cut muscle. Muscle that jumped and ticked and flexed, as if the desire thrumming in his veins stalked back and forth, a caged predator, searching for a way to be released.
My gaze traveled across the tattoo on his chest.
Relentless.
“Fight for me,” I begged.

Rock
star Kendrick Main is living the dream—or so it seems to the outside world.
 


In reality, he’s trapped in a lie that’s consuming his soul and destroying his
family. For years, the owner of his record label has manipulated and
blackmailed him, forcing him to deceive the world and hide the existence of
those he loves the most: his wife and children. 



 


Unable to see a way out that won’t destroy the lives of his bandmates and brothers,
he loses himself in the bottle. His downward spiral ends when he wakes up in
intensive care after a near-fatal drunken crash. With nothing left to lose, he
buys out of his contract and announces the existence of his wife and kids to
the waiting paparazzi. 


 

Penniless and lost, he has nothing to show for his former success but a broken
family and a mile-long list of people he’s let down. When the pain and
suffering that surrounds him trickles down to his children, Kendrick vows to
right his wrongs—hopefully taking down the man who ruined his life and winning
his wife back in the process.

 

Interlude (FourMain, #1)
Text Copyright © 2017 Kay Halliday

After covering Clara with the blankets, Eliza starts playing
with her hair and singing to her softly.
 
Clara yawns and sleepily says, “No singing.”
 I nearly laugh out loud, but manage to refrain. Whereas I am
musically gifted, Eliza can’t hold a tune to save her life. There is not a
musical bone in her body. It’s yet another of the many reasons I love her.
 
Back home in Pennsylvania, my dad is a music professor and my
mom teaches music at an elementary school. I got my first guitar before I could
walk and was immediately hooked. 
 
Until Eliza and I got together, my entire life
revolved almost completely around music. Her total lack of any musical sense or
ability was refreshing and unique, and once I became famous, it became like a
refuge from the industry that was consuming me.
 
Eliza is well aware of her handicap, so she isn’t upset by
Clara’s request. I can just make out her smile in the dim light. “I know. Daddy
is so much better than I am,” she admits.
 
Clara is quiet for a while and I think maybe she’s fallen
asleep, but then I hear her little voice.
 
“Does Daddy still love me?” she asks.
 
Upon hearing my child doubt my love for her, my heart aches, my
stomach churns, and the urge to drown myself in a bottle of hard liquor is
almost overwhelming. I want nothing more than to make myself numb to the pain.
I am so overcome with shock and despair that I don’t even reach for my rubber
band. Yet another precious name goes on the list of people I’ve let down.
 
“Of course he does!” Eliza assures her. “Why would you think
that?”
 
“Daddy used to say he sang to us to show how much he loves us,”
Clara explains. “Now he doesn’t sing at all.”
 
“Oh, honey,” Eliza says sadly, leaning down and cuddling Clara.
“Daddy loves you so much, whether he sings to you or not. He’s
just having a really hard time right now. When he sang to other people, it
caused a lot of trouble that hurt lots of people. For now, even singing to us
reminds him of that, and it hurts his heart.”
 
My child questioning my love, my wife brought to tears on my
behalf, the shattered mess of my once beautiful life—it’s all more than I can
bear.
 
 
Kay
lives in the Sunshine State with her husband and three kids. She’s had ideas
for stories running through her head her entire life, but started writing
seriously to retain her sanity as a stay at home mom. She’s random,
opinionated, and a total science nerd. Her hobbies include reading, watching
football, eating donuts, and singing badly.

Blurb From Goodreads:

Fourth novel in the fast-paced series including Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me. This sexy, emotionally charged romance continues the story of Damien Stark, the powerful multimillionaire who’s never had to take “no” for an answer, and his beloved wife Nikki Fairchild Stark, the Southern belle who only says “yes” on her own terms.

It’s a new chapter in the life of Nikki and Damien Stark …

Though shadows still haunt us, and ghosts from our past continue to threaten our happiness, my life with Damien is nothing short of perfection. He is my heart and my soul. My past and my future. He is the man who holds me together, and his love fuels my days and enchants my nights.

But when tragedy and challenge from both inside and outside the sanctity of our marriage begins to chip away at our happiness, I am forced to realize that even a perfect life can begin to crack. And if Damien and I are going to win this new battle, it will take all of our strength and love …

My Review:

That was horribly awesome! Talk about hitting the feels, geez, I still get teary eyed just thinking about it. I think this has to be one of the best Stark novels, and Damien is still at the top of my book boyfriend list. And Nikki’s mom, well, I would’ve told her where to shove it and never would’ve made the deal that Nikki did. But I totally understand why she did it. Then the little surprise at the end!! That was awesome, especially since that means there will have to be another book, at least a novella. Getting more of Stark, even a hint of one, gets me all excited lol. Kudos Ms. Kenner for another awesome story that I couldn’t put down!

EXCERPT:

I left my tunic at the lounge chairs, and we waded into the warm water, holding hands as we swam out into the dusk.

“We’re safe, right?” he asked uneasily. “Nothing’s going to bite us out here, is it?” I turned to him.

I laughed. “Honestly? I have no fucking idea,” I said, taking him in my arms. “So let’s make this quick, what do you say, hmm?” I kissed him, still laughing, as he pulled my bottoms off.

“Don’t lose those,” I admonished as I kissed him again, very wetly, untying his trunks. He looped my bottoms through his arm as I did the same with his trunks, and we pulled each other in tightly, kissing very slowly, the warm water surrounding us. His large hand encircled my breast.

“Been wanting to touch these all afternoon,” he laughed. He lowered the front of the suit, leaning down to kiss them, opening his mouth to suckle first one, then the other. His tongue snaked out to flick at the nipples, groaning as he bit them, sending bolts of electricity straight through my body to my sex.

I pulled his head up by his long hair so we were face to face. “Thank you for bringing me to this lovely place, for letting me experience this with you, thank you so much,” I murmured into his mouth as I kissed him over and over, my tongue touching his again and again, as he made happy sounds and held my head.

He finally guided himself into me, smoothly, with the warmth of the water, filling me, as we floated in the darkness, the stars above us, the lights of Nassau off to my left. I sighed with pleasure at the fullness of him, as he looked into my eyes and reached for my mouth with his, licking, moaning as pushed into me again and again, slight pushes that felt so incredible. I leaned back to float on the water as he grasped the small of my back with one arm, using the thumb of his other hand to swirl circles on my center, putting his head back down to my breasts as I looked up at the night sky.

“Make some noise, there’s no one to hear you,” he encouraged. He massaged my breast with the hand that wasn’t supporting me, rolling the nipple between his thumb and forefinger. He pinched it as he bit the other one, hard, pulling it far into his mouth. I made some kind of sound, between a moan and a groan, and I felt him quiver inside me when he heard.

“Bloody fucking Jesus, feel so fucking good on me,” he muttered against my breast, warm breath on the soft skin. “Mmm,” he exhaled slowly through his nose, pulling me closer, his movements getting faster, breathing taking on that bellows quality I knew so well.

His fingers dug into my back as he came, and I could feel him, hotter than the water around us, as he emptied inside me, curse words flowing from his mouth into the night.

We just held each other in the floating darkness, finally relaxing, breathing deeply. We looked at each other, smiling, kissing.

“We’d better swim back before we get caught in the current and get carried to Florida,” I said softly.

“Okay,” he agreed, nodding, and we slowly swam back to shore, after putting our bottoms and trunks back on.

Bombastic #BookBlitz: Dating The It Guy by Krysten Lindsay Hagar

Krysten Lindsay Hager
Publication date: March 21st 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult

Emme is a sophomore in high school who starts dating, Brendon Agretti, the popular senior who happens to be a senator’s son and well-known for his good looks. Emme feels out of her comfort zone in Brendon’s world and it doesn’t help that his picture perfect ex, Lauren, seems determined to get back into his life, along with every other girl who wants to be the future Mrs. Agretti. Emme is already conflicted due to the fact her last boyfriend cheated on her and her whole world is off kilter with her family issues. Life suddenly seems easier keeping Brendon away and relying on her crystals and horoscopes to guide her. Emme soon starts to realize she needs to focus less on the stars and more on her senses. Can Emme get over her insecurities and make her relationship work? Life sure is complicated when you’re dating the it guy.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo / Smashwords

EXCERPT:

“By the way, did you hear Lauren got into Senator Agretti’s old school?”

“Seriously? I wonder if she applied there because Brendon did,” I said.

Margaux snorted. “Duh, of course. Seriously, she might as well just pee on him to mark her territory.”

“Margaux, shut up,” Kylie said.

“Whatever. Anyway, the important thing is if Brendon knew she was applying there,” Margaux said. “Em, do you think he knew?”

I hoped Lauren was just trying to follow Brendon, but what if they had planned this whole thing while they were dating? What if he convinced her to apply there so they could go to college together, wear matching American flag sweaters with big scarves while drinking hot chocolate, and jump into leaf piles just like a preppy clothing catalog. At least now I didn’t have to worry about them reciting poetry to one another in South Bend, but still, what if they had made plans to go to school together?

“Don’t worry about it,” Kylie said. “She was probably trying to follow him—like she always does. She’s so pathetic.”

Kylie was trying to make me feel better, but Lauren was far from pathetic. After all, she was pretty much the “Most Likely to Succeed” poster girl. While she was out overachieving and saving the world without messing up her perfect, bouncy hair, I was trying to get through each day. I tried to push away the image of Lauren and Brendon holding hands and drinking hot chocolate under a stadium blanket.

He isn’t f**king here.
