Light My Fire (Sex. Rock. Mafia. #1) by Jessica Ruben

Cover by: Okay Creations

NA Contemporary Romance

From Amazon bestselling author Jessica Ruben comes a hot new Romance…

He saved me from war.

Fed me when I was in too much pain to eat.

Smuggled me and my family into America when it became too dangerous to stay.

But, Nico didn’t flee with us.

While I began elementary school in the United States, he was building the greatest and toughest Mafia of the century.

The Mafia Shqiptare.

Nico is now King of all underground trades.

Sexy. Aggressive. Brilliant.

After years of nothing but silence, he’s back in my life,

Ready to do whatever it takes to bring me into his universe.

He isn’t leaving until he takes me with him.

EXCERPT:

“It’s your brother,” he says matter-of-factly. “But you probably knew that already.”

My stomach drops. Agron.

“It seems he’s been stealing from some of my associates.” His voice is completely devoid of any feeling. “He was dealing for them and keeping a little bit of product for himself. Sometimes, he used it; other times, he sold it. But after a while, people began to notice. He ran to the Shqipe for help.”

I want to blink, but I cannot move.

“I gave him the money to pay those debts. And now, I’m the one he owes. I figured I could use him to do some small-time work, get my money back that way.” He takes a sip of his wine, completely unfazed. “And then I hear, Agron wants a firm spot in my world. Gave one of my men a whole story that the Mafia Shqiptare is where he’s meant to be.

“As we both know, your brother has always been a loose cannon. Arguably, untrustworthy. I knew him when he was a kid, but I’m a firm believer that people don’t change.” He stops speaking, continuing to dig into his food.

Meanwhile, I’m worried mine is going to come back up. Hearing this about my brother isn’t a surprise, but it’s painful nonetheless.

I take another sip of my wine, hoping it will calm me or at least give the illusion I’m relaxed. Unfortunately, my hand trembles, and the glass shakes, giving me away. Nico notices, of course.

He clears his throat, putting his fork down. “There is something I need from you. And if you give me what I want, I’ll protect your brother from the other gangs by giving him a spot in the Shqipe. You do not have to agree to the arrangement. But if you do, there is no end to it until I decide it’s over.” He settles into a forward-lean position, big arms resting on the glass table and shirtsleeves pulled up to the center of his strong, corded forearms. Everything about him, from his body language to his words, spells dominance.

I open and then shut my mouth.

Nico looks me up and down, his gaze stormy and hot.

Is Nico going to ask me for sex? It wouldn’t be unheard of in these crazy circles. But I have a limit, and whoring myself out for the sake of my brother is a no-go. No. Impossible. Never.

“What I need is simple,” he continues casually, the look in his eyes extinguished. “There is a new family I’m aiming to do business with. They’re the type who like to work with men who are … settled down. I know how loyal you are to your word. We share a language and customs. You will act as my wife when I request it.”

“I have school.” I lick my lips. I can’t let go of my future. Not for Agron and not for anyone. I won’t!

“You can go back for your studies”—he nods—“finish your degree. But when I call, you must come.”

“This arrangement,” I start, pointing between himself and me, “it’s just for public purposes, r-right? Nothing private you’re expecting or illegal?” I can’t help my stutter. I want to stay strong in the face of all of this, but it’s getting difficult.

Nico looks over my shoulder, and I turn my head, finding no one behind me. When I refocus on him, he’s fuming. He knows what I’m insinuating.

He grits his teeth. “You aren’t my whore, Elira. And I’m not going to ask you to do my dirty work either.” His eyes are hard.

Is he offended?

“Take my proposal at face value.” He finishes his drink. His huge hand places the delicate crystal glass on the table. “There is no hidden agenda. You pretend to be my wife, come when I call you, and act as I expect, and in return, I will bring your brother into my fold, making sure that no outsider kills him. If you walk away, he’s on his own.”

“He wants to work for you. He will do a good job for you.” I swallow hard.

He cocks his head to the side, like he’s calling bullshit. “Agron’s best asset is that he is related to you.”

I shift, but the weight of my body feels like it’s doubled. “And if he’s within the Shqipe, the other groups won’t be able to touch him?”

“That’s right.”

Quiet descends upon our discussion, but my mind shrieks. The skeptical part of me is on questioning overdrive. “What kind of events would be required of me?”

He takes another bite of food. “We’d travel. Dinners. Things like that.”

I wait to hear more, things along the lines of dungeons and sex slave, but thankfully, it doesn’t come. “So, all I have to do is pretend we’re married?”

He nods. “Yes. Exactly.”

“But what about when this business thing you need me for is complete? What will happen to Agron then?”

His lips quirk up. “You’re very loyal, Elira.”

“He’s my brother.” What else can I say? I want and need Agron to stay safe and alive. This is clearly his best shot.

“We’ll cross that bridge when it comes. I would take this offer then if you are so keen on making sure he stays out of trouble.”

“You’ll swear to that?”

“My oath is my bond.”

I know he’s telling the truth. For people like us, honor is everything.

I wait for him to elaborate some more, but he doesn’t. Surprisingly, I feel my nose twitch. I was expecting him to mention something, anything, about before. About what we had. But he doesn’t. And I’m not about to either. I just want to get the hell out of here. I want to go back in time and tell myself not to have that damn cigarette. I wish I’d flagged Jack down when he was circled by those girls and claimed him for myself. Instead, I made one fucking choice, and now, here I am, in front of Nico, my life on crazy ground.

“It’s late.” Nico shifts in his chair. “You’ll stay tonight and think. Tomorrow morning, give me your answer. Regardless of what you choose, I’ll have my car bring you back to school.” He stands up, twisting the fancy gold watch around his wrist. “When you’re finished eating, Maria will bring you back to your room.”

“I want to leave tonight.” Some of my bravado from before is gone. Beneath the strong girl is plain me—a college kid from Tobeho. Here is the last place I want to stay.

“Until I have your answer, you aren’t allowed to take one step out of my sight.” He stands up to his full menacing height, and in this moment, he truly scares me. He doesn’t give a shit about what we had—that much is clear.

I force myself upright, refusing to cower.

Seemingly satisfied, he walks away.

“What an asshole,” I curse under my breath.

He snaps, “What did you call me?” His stubborn jaw gives him a stony expression.

My stomach drops to my knees.

“Something to remember.” He saunters back to where I sit. “I will not be seen with a woman who doesn’t look polished or well-raised. I know who you are and where you come from. Act like the woman you ought to be or forget the deal.” And with those final cutting words, he’s gone.

What people are saying about Things We Never Said

 

“Samantha Young once again delivers the perfect balance of emotion and wit, tension and levity… a visceral, beautifully penned story.” Vilma Iris

“The love and pain that went into writing this story is so evident throughout that you just don’t want to put the book down… Another MUST read by Samantha Young.” Badass Bloggettes

“Dahlia and Michael have chemistry that is explosive… I loved how they loved each other.”— Kathryn, Tsk, Tsk What to Read?

“Oh my word, I can’t even begin to explain how much I loved and devoured this book… Things We Never Said deserves ALL the stars.” —Lucie Lu’s Book Reviews

“Angst and heartache. Drama and suspense. Steam and longing. Slow burn and the most swoon-tastic hero… Things We Never Said HAD IT ALL.”— Angie’s Dreamy Reads

“Oy, what a beautiful yet heartbreaking story is this one.” — BJs Book Blog

“This is a great addition to this series… highly recommend!” —Reading with 2 Book Lovers

“This is a second chance love story at its finest.” — Amy, Garden of REden

Review Test

If you’re ever looking for a book that will completely knock your socks off, look no further than Samantha Young. I don’t know how she does it, but every book Sam’s written, she’s knocked it out of the park.

I have been a HUGE fan of her work from the moment I read On Dublin Street, and I have pretty much read every book she’s released since. Before Jamaica Lane being my absolute favourite, and I have re-read that book more times than I have had hot dinners.

I have had the very great privilege to read and review all the books in the Hart’s Boardwalk series, and I have loved them all. Whilst reading I have connected with the characters and then been desperate to read their stories. First it was Cooper and Jess in The One Real Thing. Vaughn and Bailey in Every Little Thing, and Michael and Dahlia in Things We Never Said. Vaughn and Bailey were favourite characters, but that soon changed after reading Michael and Dahlia’s story. Oh my word, I can’t even begin to explain how much I loved and devoured this book. The only problem now is that I am desperate to get my hands on the next couple’s book, and I am praying it’s going to be Emery and Jack. I need their book like I need my next breath.

Samantha Young completely wrecks me with her words. Her books are addictive and gut-wrenching, beautiful and compelling, and I love nothing more than losing myself within the pages of one of her stories.

Things We Never Said deserves ALL the stars.

Pretty Reckless – L.J. Shen

Pretty Reckless, an all-new standalone high school, bully romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is available now!

LJSPrettyRecklessBookCover6x9_MEDIUM

We were supposed to be best friends

But turned out to be worst enemies…

Penn

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.

I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart is completely iced.

I took her first kiss.

She took the only thing I loved.

I was poor.

She was rich.

The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.

Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.

Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.

Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.

There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.

Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.

Daria

Everyone loves a good-old, unapologetic punk.

But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.

The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.

In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.

Four years ago, he asked me to save all of my firsts for him.

Now he lives across the hall, and there’s nothing I want more than to be his last everything.

His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.

Now? Now he is making me pay.

Excerpt:

“I don’t want you transferring into my school,” I hiss out. Melody would gladly file a transfer request, and Principal Prichard would salivate over the chance to snatch him up for our football team.

“That won’t be a problem. You guys suck so much ass, you have shit-breath.”

“Still smells better than poverty. You’re poor, right? Your sister was just bullshitting about being rich.”

When someone hits me with a stick, I run over them with a tank. I’m so mean to him I want to throw up. I hate this part of being me. The striking harder at all costs part.

“Just to make things clear.” I put the brush down, batting my lashes. “You’re not my step-sibling, foster brother, or a part of the family. You’re a stray dog. Last of the litter, most unlikely to be adopted, and a charity case.”

Penn takes a step toward me, and my heart is fighting its way out of my ribcage. The closer he gets, the more I realize that my heart might succeed. Penn’s eyes remind me of a snake’s. Mesmerizing, but inhuman altogether. They weren’t like that before.

His scent messes with my head. I want to reach out and caress his face. Kiss his wounds better. Beg for forgiveness. Curse him. Push him away. Cry on his shoulder for what we’ve done. For how it ended. For what we became afterwards, because I’m full of crap and he is totally empty.

We ruined ourselves the day of our first kiss.

Penn looks down at me. Time stops. It feels like the world is losing gravity, falling into a bottomless depth in space when he clasps my chin with his thumb and finger, lifting my head up. I can’t breathe. I’m not sure I want to, either. My towel drops to the floor with a thud, even though I secured it over my chest. I realize that he tugged at it intentionally. I’m naked. My body, my soul, my heart. All my walls are down. Somewhere in my head, a red alarm blasts and my inhibitions are getting armed, ready to fight back. I’m trying to decode his expression. He is amused, irritated, and…playful? The mixture of emotions doesn’t make any sense.

“Mess with me, Followhill, and I will ruin you.”

“Not if I ruin you first.”

Blurb:

From Amazon Bestselling Author Jessica Ruben comes the latest Contemporary/New Adult Romance….

I have no intention of finding happily-ever-after.
At least, not anymore.

Fighting for my country was an honor,
returning home is a curse.

My demons need to be fed.
How else can a shattered man stay afloat?

When a wild night in Las Vegas with the sexiest woman I’ve ever met turns into hell, she attaches to me as though I’m her savior.

But what happens when a woman hangs her hands on broken glass?
She bleeds.

*Warrior Undone is a stand alone spin-off from the Vincent and Eve series. This is a full length novel.

About the Author:

 

Jessica Ruben lives and works in New York City, where she spends her days dominating in the court room as an attorney. Come nightfall, she writes romances centering on gorgeous alpha males and the intelligent women who love them.

Review Test

OK so I think it’s safe to say that every book Jessica Ruben writes is going to instantly become my favourite read of the year.

It happened with the Vincent and Eve series, and now with Warrior Undone.

Last year Jessica’s debut series Vincent and Eve took the top spot for Best Read of the Year for me and has become one of my all-time favourites. I couldn’t wait to see what the author had up her sleeve for us next, so you can probably imagine how excited I was when I heard that Slade was getting his own book.

Warrior Undone isn’t sunshine and rainbows. It isn’t about two people who meet, instantly fall in love and live happily ever after. It’s ugly, it’s heart-wrenching, and is crammed with real and raw emotion. Everything that Slade went, and is going through, all the heartache and guilt that he feels. You as a reader feel it too. Every. Single. Moment.

Slade is a former Navy SEAL, who is suffering from severe PTSD. He doesn’t realise this, and therefore convinces himself that things will get better naturally. After a one-night-stand that ends with Slade choking his date until she blacks out, he decides to take matters into his own hands by self-medicating. Slade is in deep denial, and with his conflicted feelings towards Lauren, his life begins quickly spiralling out of control.

This book is everything I could have hoped and wished for from Jessica’s next novel. It is so incredibly sexy, and intense, and damn right addictive. Nobody on God’s green earth could have pried my Kindle from my hands. I was completely and utterly submerged in Slade and Lauren’s world, the chemistry that these characters have with each other is so immense and intoxicating. I didn’t want it to end.

If you haven’t already read Jessica’s previous books, you need to get on that pronto!! Seriously you are missing out, this is one author whose books will blow you away with how talented she is. I am so giddy with excitement; I can’t wait to see what Jessica has for us next.

Review Test

Oh my lord…she’s done it again!!

Jessica Ruben completely blows me away!! Vincent and Eve is Jessica’s debut series, yet you would think the author had been writing books her entire life; she is a complete natural. Her writing is compelling and intense and has you gripping onto you Kindle until your knuckles turn white. Jessica Ruben has done an outstanding job with bringing these books to an end. Although I’m devastated with having to say goodbye to these characters, I cannot wait to hear what the author has up her sleeve for us in her next book.

After I had read Rising, the first book in the series, I honestly thought it could not get any better. It was fresh and exciting and totally original. I devoured those pages as if it was my last meal. I had been in a book funk for quite some time beforehand, so you can imagine what I felt like after the book had ended. I couldn’t even look at another book, nothing interested me, I needed book two pronto!!

The same thing happened with Reckoning by the way. MAJOR book hangover!!

So onto Redemption. I was nervous and yet totally peeing my pants with excitement over what I may find between those pages. I loved that we had jumped forward in time to when Vincent and Eve had matured and overcome what had happened to them in the last seven years. They had grown and changed, they were no longer the young couple we had known before. I also loved that no matter the distance between them and the time they had been apart, the moment they see each other again for the first time, it’s EXPLOSIVE!! Their chemistry is still as hot and intense as it had always been, and you feel it. It crackles in the air, gives you goose-bumps, and makes you hairs stand on end. I love it!!

I can safely say that the Vincent and Eve series is by far the greatest read this year and will go on my  list of favourite reads of all time. This is an EPIC series that I recommend to absolutely EVERYONE. Rating 5

Célian Laurent.

Manhattan royalty.

Notorious playboy.

Heir to a media empire.

…And my new boss.

I could have impressed him, if not for last month’s unforgettable one-night stand.

I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory—namely, his wallet.

Now he’s staring me down like I’m the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I’m supposed to take it.

But the thing about being Judith “Jude” Humphry is I have nothing to lose.

Brooklyn girl.

Infamously quirky.

Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.

When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals.

He knows it.

So do I.

Every day in the newsroom is a battle.

Every night in his bed, war.

But it’s my heart at stake, and I fear I’ll be raising the white flag.

She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.

Reese
I made a mistake that might have ruined someone’s life. I’ve moved to Sydney to avoid the glares and the questions from the people back home, but there’s one thing I can’t run from—the guilt and pain that follows me relentlessly. All I can do is dull it with alcohol and casual sex. But then my new boss, Mr Dark and Delicious, deserted me, mid kiss, with my skirt hiked up and my shirt discarded on the alley floor. I should hate him―him and the secrets he’s keeping. But I can’t stay away. Because the pain and guilt he’s hiding mirror my own.
Low
All she wanted was one night. That, I could do. I’m the king of casual. Love them and leave them, before they leave me. With chemistry off the scale, we couldn’t even make it home, both of us too impatient, ripping each other’s clothes off in the alleyway outside the bar. Then my phone buzzed, and one text message stopped everything. I couldn’t think. Couldn’t breathe. All I could do was run. I’m toxic, but I can’t tell her why. I can’t bear the look of horror I know would cross her face. But I also don’t know how to keep something so life altering from the woman I’m falling for. Not when I need her just to survive it.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Elle Thorpe lives on the sunny east coast of Australia, about an hour out of Sydney. When she’s not writing stories full of kissing and chemistry, she’s a wife, and Mummy to three tiny humans.

PLAYBOY BY KATY EVANS

Playboy by Katy Evans
Publication Date: July 29, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Playboy

Synopsis:

A brand new contemporary romance from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

It started as a game.

We flirted. We played. Most importantly—we won.

Then I discovered who he was: Gambler. Famous playboy. Silver-eyed player who never plays to lose…

And my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael.

He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction.

So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep.

My heart, soul, and body weren’t supposed to be part of the deal.

But somewhere between big wins and long nights, my house of cards started to tumble.

What was this devil with those piercing eyes doing to me?

I’d given up on love, but the wicked, all-in Cullen Carmichael was upping the ante and wouldn’t stop until he’d won it all.

Excerpt:

“So you just kissed me because you wanted to.” I speak on a breath.

“Very good. You’re perceptive. Intuitive.”

I realize he’s teasing me in that low, terribly rumbly voice and I wish he would smile at me.

He takes my hand and fingers my palm with his thumb as he leads me to our suite.

I’m sizzling where he touches me, nervously prying my hand free when he leads me into the biggest, most spectacular two-bedroom penthouse suite I’ve ever seen. Not that I’d seen one before in person, only movies.

There’s a kitchen area, and windows from floor to ceiling. A living room, a pool table, gold brass chandeliers, a brown-and-beige-patterned carpet, dark woods, Italian leathers. Gorgeous! I could move in here.

Now I see the appeal but won’t admit as much.

Thinking of our bet, I pay attention to the art on the walls. It’s expensive. I can tell by the numbered print and the signature. Painters with indecipherable and artistic signatures are often the artists to watch. It’s like they know from the moment they paint their first work that they’re on to something big, something that will distinguish their work from all others.

I wish Cullen loved art as much as I do. Maybe I could drag him away from the tables to a local gallery.

“Wow. I could just live he—” I spin around and bump into his big warm body, and he bends his head and kisses my words right out of me.

Kisses me stupid. Kisses my toes curled. Kisses my brain blank. Kisses my heart crazy.

7 win at any cost

Review Test

I know without a shadow of a doubt, that when I have a Katy Evans book sitting in my hands I will be glued to the pages from start to finish. Katy’s books are my drug, I am completed addicted her work and have, on more than one occasion, squealed like a little girl when hearing that a new book is coming out. She is my Unicorn Author.

When I heard that Callan Carmichael’s older brother was getting a book, I was beyond ecstatic! I loved Womanizer, and if Cullen Carmichael was anything like his brother I was going to be in for a real treat. I love the Manwhore series and have read all the books, my personal favourite being Ladies Man, only because Tahoe Roth can do absolutely no wrong in my eyes. But Cullen Carmichael gave Tahoe a run for his money and may have even knocked him off the top spot.

I thoroughly enjoyed Playboy, like I knew I would. But more than anything I loved the fast pace of it all. I loved the Vegas and gambling theme, it was sexy, it intrigued me and had me wanting more. I loved the instant and intense chemistry Cullen and Wynn had. I felt like they really understood each other and were exactly what they both needed, even though they didn’t know it.

Playboy is written from both Cullen and Wynn’s point of view, which I really liked. I loved hearing what Cullen was thinking. I also enjoyed meeting up with the old crew, namely Tahoe of course. It was great to see what they were all up to and how their relationships had progressed.

I really enjoyed Playboy, Katy has completely out done herself with this book. She never disappoints, and I cannot wait to hear what she has in store for us next.

Rating 5
