Blog Tour Stop & Sassy Sara's Review for City of Champions by Chloe T. Barlow


For those who have been anxiously awaiting this book for te past 8-ish months, those of you who are just realizing the greatness that is Chloe T Barlow, and those who are hearing about her for the first time: Fair warning, that Bitch had me ugly crying by the end of the prologue. Have no fear, I already yelled at Chloe for it and I may or may not have sent a selfie to said author showing my tear soaked face.  That's what you get for making me cry!!

So as you can tell, City if Champions starts off tugging your heart strings and once you get hooked, this story doesn't let you go.  You are brought into the world of Jenna, a woman who tries at all cost to be perfect and not get too attached to anyone or anything; it can only lead to heartache.  Until she meets Wyatt.  Jenna grew up around football and became an orthopedic surgeon so naturally, critiquing a player's performance she has seen play for years, in a professional capacity of course, shouldn't have such a big effect on her.  The trouble is, from the moment Jenna lays eyes on Wyatt, off the field, she knows he is different from all the men in her past.  Sure, she has the blonde bombshell looks going for her and the fact that she loves football is also a plus for this Pittsburgh Roughnecks starting quarterback but when it comes to this sexy doctor meeting him in a professional capacity he was expecting a woman that fall at his feet and do his bidding. 
Oh, he was so very wrong...  

Wyatt 'Gunslinger' McCoy had been playing in pain for quite some time and with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, surgery is one of the last things he needs if he wants to stay in Pittsburgh and be able to provide for his loved ones.  The son of the legendary football hero, Jim Mccoy, Wyatt has some big shoes to fill if he wants to make a name for himself and will do whatever it takes to get what he wants.  The fact that Jenna just happens to be one of the doctors he can seek a second opinion from just makes things easier for him.  With his killer body and the face of a god, he has never had a problem getting women to see his side of things but something about Jenna lets Wyatt know from the start that this will be an uphill climb.  Is she worth it? Well at the very least, it'll be fun trying!

Total 5 star read even if you're not that big of a sports fan.  Chloe had me cracking up to the banter of these three best friends, Althea, Jenna and Aubrey.  The fact that Aubrey indicated that her cardio workout was jumping to conclusions and Althea had no problem throwing Jenna to the wolves (or just this one wolf) brought you back to what made book one, Three Rivers, so amazing.  This unbreakable bond that these ladies share is something to admire.  That they are all learning about relationships as they go and no one in this series has life all figured out makes these characters people you might see in your everyday life.  THAT is what I connect to when I read Chloe's books.  Sure, billionaires and famous people can be fun but it's the person behind that mask that I either connect to or the book isn't as good as it could be.  Thank God my girl can write.  It was well worth the wait and from the snippet at the end, book 3 looks like it will be a scorcher! Yum!!  For those of you that missed it, check out my review of Three Rivers and Chloe's super sexy Dare to Tell the Truth interview!

~Much Love,

Three Rivers Deleted Scene 
(Gateway to Love, #1)

“You look really hot Tea.” Aubrey assured her.
“I don’t know, it feels a little exposed.” Althea looked at herself in the mirror, alternately tugging the top up and the hem further down on the deep red dress Aubrey and Jenna had chosen for her. It was low cut and gathered provocatively around her breasts, with ruching between them and at the waist. The straps were thick and soft and sat just on her shoulders. It was hot and flattering in a Lana Turner kind of way, without being trashy, but it was the most blatantly sexy thing she'd worn since Jack died.
“Not at all,” Jenna said. “You look really pretty.”
“Okay,” Althea responded, pulling on the straps, “but you guys are on duty tonight. There is no way to wear a bra with this dress and you need to let me know if the girls try to escape or the bar is cold and I get a wee tit nipply over here.”
“Of course!” Aubrey assured her as she leaned down and saluted Althea’s breasts, “Officers Cooper and Sutherland reporting for booby watch, sir. No boobs are going AWOL on our watch.”
Althea giggled and ran her fingers through her hair, noticing her empty fingers. She’d made some attempts to stop wearing her rings years ago, but something about the sultriness of her make up and dress made their absence stand out to her. It caused Althea to feel that pang of guilt like she was cheating, but she just kept reciting her new mantra: Baby Steps, Baby Steps, to herself. A reminder that she needed to make some kind of changes in her life. If a pretty red dress that brought out the auburn highlights in her hair and showcased her golden-toned skin in a way that made her feel really pretty, then it couldn’t be a bad thing, right? Right.
“Thanks Brey. Now, if I can just not kill myself in these crazy heels you leant me...don’t look at me like that. I am totally grateful because these peep toe shoes are so cute, but I hope you drive me to the hospital if I break an ankle.”
“Hopefully you won’t be walking on these shoes for long. Ideally they will be brushing your ears later.” Aubrey said with a saucy wink.
“Aubrey, seriously! You two are too much.”
“So, you’ve got the shoes, the great dress, love the soft peekaboo waves. All perfect. Sexy without trying too hard. One last check, are you waxed?” Aubrey asked.
“Brey, give me a break here.”
“This is important Tea. I know you’ve had a no vacancy sign on your beave for almost six years now, but I seriously hope you've still been getting your muff de-fluffed because there is nothing more embarrassing than finally getting ready to close the deal, only to have the guy discover you are all 1970’s wild and wooly style down there.”
“Don’t worry, I have continued to be early 2000’s bare, thank you very much. Now can we please go? Even if I don’t meet anyone who wants to discover what decade my private parts favor, I seriously need a strong cocktail after all of this crazy prep.”
“Drink it is!” Jenna exclaimed. "Ladies, its time to bring some sexy back.” Althea rolled her eyes as everyone grabbed their purses and headed out. She sent a quick text to Carol to ask how Johnny was doing. She got a quick reply: “Johnny and I are having a great night. You girls have fun!” Althea cringed sending a silent thank you that Jack’s mother had no idea what kind of fun her friends had in mind for her tonight.
“You coming Tea?” Jenna asked from the door.
“Yup, let’s do this,” and with that, they left the house to start some baby killer high heels.

A HUGE thanks to our sisters at Love Between the Sheets for organizing this tour!!

Kayla the Bibliophile Blog Tour Stop: Beta by Jasinda Wilder

Roth and I are on an open-ended tour of the world. Roth being Roth, this means missionary in Morocco, reverse cowgirl in Calcutta, bent over the bow of a houseboat in Hanoi, slow and sleepy on St. John. Anywhere and everywhere, in every conceivable position, and some I didn't know were possible.

Life was pretty incredible.

Until I woke up in his chateau in France, alone. On the bed next to me was a note. There were only four words:

He belongs to me.

*Recieves email telling me Jasinda has written a sequel to Alpha and would like to know if I want a copy to review* 
2nd: Wait...she wrote a sequel to Alpha?! Holy crap!

So you want to read a sweet, fluffy love story depicting all the different places Roth and Kyrie get it on during their world travels?
Well, sucks for you! This is definitely not that, and thank goodness. This is much darker than I expected out of the hilarious and awesome author, and I was very impressed, seeing how I like them as dark as they come, my favorites being CJ Roberts, Aleatha Romig, Belle Aurora, and Pepper Winters. 
This is a true sequel, picking up where Alpha left off, so you'll definitely need to read that one first to truly understand what is going on.
 It's a whirlwind ride with twists and turns that won't let you set the book down, and it all starts from page one!
Listen to the warning from the description. There are parts involving rape and torture, so if those are triggers for you, stay away. But if you enjoy an adrenaline pumping, shocking, and intense read that will make you forget it's not real life because of how well written it is, then Beta should be next on your one-click list.

Sassy Sara's Review for Damned by David Michael

So here's the scoop.  I 'met' David back in February when we had sent out a general invitation here at KTB to any author that wanted to take our Dare.  Since then (has it really been 8 months?) we have worked together on his last few books and I even got to meet up with him a few times!  (That's me on the right!) And yes, he IS as cute and funny in person as he appears on Facebook in case you were wondering...   
Due to this you may think 'She's totally dickmatized by that picture she posted of him and completely biased.' Well, while some of that may be true (i'll let you sort out which bits) I'll tell you what I tell him after I give my honest opinion on ANYTHING he writes. 'What good does lying and kissing your ass do anyone?  If I tell you a shitty book is great, we BOTH look like asshats.'  So with that in mind, here is my fairly dickmatized and partially biased review. 

Book Four 
The United Series

So, if you read the description on Amazon or Goodreads, you already know that this is a whole lot of hot rolled up into one book.  You get all these combinations of bed partners together in one book and before you've even gotten 25% through the book, you need to set it down and take care of... well, you know... but this book is so much more than that.  Even after spending hours talking to an author about plot ideas and character development, you aren't always prepared for how it will all come together and blindside you.  David exceeded all my expectations with this book.  I wasn't prepared on any level for the vulnerability, the emotion, the connectedness of these characters to each other and to me.  To know that these characters have been through hell, literally and figuratively, with each other FOR each other shows that no man is an island.  I fell in love with Hayden's big heart and his appreciation for birds, Kane and his sexy confidence and unwavering support, Luke and his fierce protection of his 'family', Makkar's ability to hatch a plan and Sarah's never ending font of love for the men in her life.

There are days when you look around and can literally see these characters in your everyday life.  At home, at work, on Facebook, and THAT is what makes this book unlike many paranormal stories out there today.  The imagined and the unimaginable taking over your life and you end up learning how to see past all the crazy and go straight for what matters.  The people you love.  That love takes many forms in this book and I would ask you to keep an open mind but if it's not your thing, we have PLENTY of other suggestions for you. I mean, book 3 in the series is m/f and so hot I almost melted... Wait, I kinda did... Nevermind!  Just read this series.  It's thought and, yes at times, tear provoking but my hangover has never been so long from reading a book.  Ever. Seriously, it was like 5 weeks...  Absolutely worth the time and money as I've purchased it despite my free copy.

~Much Love

Larissa donned her coat, grabbed a shopping sack and headed onto the crowded streets. It was dark, early evening, and the sidewalks were still packed. She couldn’t help but think about Garrick’s warning about the towpath and ghost. It was a short cut to the store and she didn’t want to leave Jordan alone for long. Not that she didn’t trust Jordan, but she was new and might not be able to answer a customer’s question. As she stood by the entrance of the path, two joggers ran across the parking lot and onto the towpath. See? If it was safe enough for them, why not her?
Deciding to ignore Garrick’s warning, she followed the joggers  and speed–walked toward the bridge. The trail was peaceful, a great place to jog and not so isolated that she felt unsafe. The sounds of traffic and Christmas music in the distance comforted her. The joggers passed the bridge and were out of sight. Stuffing her hands in her coat pocket, she hurried along the grassy path.
Under the bridge, she rushed up the steps leading to the street. Her hands shook when she entered the small grocery store. She refused to get spooked by superstitions. She picked up coffee, milk, yogurt and fresh berries. The fruit was way over priced for this time of year but she needed a taste of summer. Then she stopped at the wine store for a bottle of merlot. She hoped by inviting Jordan for dinner, she might find out what she knew about the town and its mysterious people like Garrick, Ramon and Kashia. On the way home, she took the canal towpath again, refusing to allow a legend to spook her.
Something tugged on her hair and she jumped, almost dropping her shopping sack. Laughing, she gripped onto her bag and marched under the bridge. She was scaring herself for no reason.
This time a shadow crossed her path.
“You will be my crimson slave,” a man’s voice whispered close to her ear. She felt his breath, felt the touch of his hand on her shoulder. Crying out, Larissa spun around but no one was there.
She glanced up and down the path and saw no one running away. To one side was a wall leading up to the bridge. Even a tall person couldn’t leap to the top. The only other way off the path was to jump into the canal. She would’ve heard a splash if the man was crazy enough to do that in this weather. Was it the ghost, or something else?
Her body chilled then flashed with heat. A shiver raised goose bumps over her skin. If it was a ghost then she had nothing to fear. A ghost couldn’t harm her, only frighten her if she let it.
The shadow and a breeze sped passed her and Larissa was slammed against the cold stone wall. All the air rushed out of her lungs and she gasped for a breath to scream.
The weight of a muscular body pressed her against the wall as hands moved up her hips and waist. Oh God, she was going to be raped or murdered or both. With all her strength she tried to kick, tried to swing her arms to fight, but she was paralyzed.
Her pulse thundered in her head. Finally she found the courage to open her eyes and face her attacker. The Goth guy who was on her balcony. “You.”
“Yes, little one. I’m claiming you. Taking what’s rightfully mine.” His scorching gaze moved down her length, kicking up her heartbeat and heating her skin. Despite the violence, she felt woozy, sensually achy, his touch tempting. Her head leaned back and rested against the stone, the fight and fear being replaced by erotic desire.
What was wrong with her? “What are you doing?” she murmured.
“Wait and see.” His booted foot shoved her feet apart. A muscular thigh eased between her legs. The buttons of her coat opened and cold air chilled her body. Fear rose to the surface again. She shuddered as his mouth glided over her neck, teeth scraping her skin. “This might hurt a little. It’ll be over quick,” he said.

 Let’s start with a little foreplay…
What would you say is the most embarrassing thing you have done or had done to you?
Dear lawd, won't let me easy, will you? 
 Think it was when the daughter of the pastor caught me doing funny (read, naughty) things with her bother at the back of the church. (I'm hell bound, I know)
Craziest Fan moment?

What did you think while reading these questions?
That you need an intervention, you crazy ass.
Thank you for answering my naughty questions. Was it as good for you as it was for me?
Who knows, you like torturing people lol
Did you have anything else you’d like to say before we go?
