Cover Reveal ~ My Unexpected Forever by Heidi McLaughlin

I expected a life of music.

I expected to raise my son.

It took one look to make everything change.

I never expected happiness.

I never expected to find her.

I never expected to feel desire.

I never expected I’d be a family man.

I never expected to be loved.

I never expected to fall in love.

They say you should expect the unexpected. I didn’t realize my unexpected would be the forever kind.

Release Day- Mid Life Love

 BookCoverImage (3)

~ Synopsis ~

If you’d asked me what love was two years ago, I probably would’ve said, ‘It’s this amazing feeling that obsesses and possesses you; it’s what me and my husband currently have.’ If you ask me that same question today, I’ll say, ‘Please get the hell out of my face.’’

Claire Gracen’s life is picture perfect. Her career as a marketing director is on the brink of being legendary, and her marriage to her high school sweetheart has never been stronger. No, wait. It has. It used to be amazing and fulfilling, but one day Claire realizes that she’s been living a lie and her best friend and husband have committed the ultimate betrayal.

Broken and depressed, Claire is in need of something new—new city, new job, new friends.

When she happens to attract the interest of the sexiest man she’s ever met, a man significantly younger than her, she immediately turns him down—only to later discover that this man is Jonathan Statham, self-made billionaire and CEO of Statham Industries. Her boss.

Jonathan Statham is unlike any man she’s met before. He’s used to getting whatever he wants—whenever he wants, and he isn’t about to take no for an answer.

Sexy, unpredictable, and charmingly clever, Mid Life Love is a story that will captivate you, entertain you, and force you to fall deeply in love with the characters.

~ Excerpt ~

“Hmmm.” Jonathan leaned back in the chair and narrowed his eyes at me. “You know, I was having a pretty good weekend too. I was spending my nights talking to an extremely beautiful woman. I believe I talked to her every night and we made an arrangement… But then she stood me up on Saturday, so my weekend ended quite terribly.”

“Oh really?” I cleared my throat. “Well, that stuff happens sometimes. It’s all a part of life, young man. Live a little more and then—”

“I’m not sure what I should be more upset about—the fact that you keep insulting me by using my age against me, or the fact that I sat in an empty restaurant waiting for you for two hours.”

He waited two hours?

“Look, I’m sorry I didn’t call you. I just—”

“The last time I was stood up for a date was…” He stood up and walked over to me. “Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever been stood up on a date. It’s such a juvenile thing to do, don’t you think?”

“Yes. It’s quite juvenile. I can’t imagine why someone would ever do that.”

“Hmmm.” He reached down and removed the elastic band from my ponytail, letting my hair fall to my shoulders. “You have no idea why a beautiful woman would stand me up for a date?”

“Maybe there’s a lack of chemistry?” I nearly stuttered.

“No, she and I have plenty of chemistry…”

“Could it be that you two have nothing in common?”

He ran his fingers through my hair. “We talked for quite a while last week…I think we have more than enough in common.”

I shrugged. “Maybe she’s just not that into you then.”

“Oh, she’s definitely into me.” He smirked. “She just won’t admit it for some reason.”

“Well, if it were me, I would just give up and pursue someone else. She did stand you up.”

He tilted my chin with his fingertips so that I was looking directly into his eyes. “I’m not going to give up. She is. And I don’t want to pursue anyone else.”

We stood gazing into each other’s eyes and I realized that I needed to get him out of my house and get back to my bubble bath.

I should use him for inspiration…

“Look,” I said. “I was in the middle of something very important before you came over, so if you could leave right now so I can get back to it, that would be great. Maybe we can talk about what happened over the weekend at work tomorrow? For the record, I really am sorry I stood you up. I had every intention of being there but—”

He silenced me with a kiss and I kissed him back with a passion I’d never felt before. He reached down and untied my robe, pushing it off my shoulders and onto the floor.

Smiling, he assaulted my mouth with his tongue again, using his hands to tug at the drawstring on my pants.

All of sudden, I felt a vibrating sound going off in my pocket. Before I could reach down and shut it off, he reached into my pants and pulled out my favorite purple friend.

He examined it for a few seconds, blinking. Then he held it front of my face and smirked. “Is this what I was interrupting?”

It’s been four years….Four. Long. Years…

“Claire?” He cupped my chin and held my face so I wouldn’t be able to turn away. “Is this what you were doing?”

“I…” I swallowed. Then I went for it. “What if it was?”

A slow, sexy smile spread across his lips. “Then I think I should finish what you started.”

~ Review ~

Sapphire Universe was a really cute book! The story did give a lot of drama, and didn’t have me stressing out at any point. I was in need of a light enjoyable read, and this book really hit the spot! Devon Herrera did a great job and making me fall in love with Conner! How could you not fall in love with a guy as sweet and hot as him?!  Nina was a great female character that was her own worst enemy! The story developed really well, and I felt like I was growing more and more attached to the characters as the story progressed.  In the past I have made no secret of my love for books that provide a good play list with great music to make you fall in love. The playlist provided with this book really hooked me! Devon is clearly a talented author and I am looking for my next read from her! I give this book 4 Stars!

~ About the Author ~

6913170I am a wife of a U.S Army Soldier and mother of a beautiful little girl. I work for the Wyoming Department of Revenue in Cheyenne Wyoming, and no we don’t still ride horses out here. I’ve been in love with reading since I first discovered the Harry Potter series in 4th grade. I don’t just read a good book I devour it. After reading hundreds of novels I finally bit the bullet and sat down to write one of my own. I had an idea in my head and as soon as I started writing, the story seemed to play out right infront of me. Nothing has ever felt so natural. About 10 chapters into it I decided that I was going to take the plunge and get it self published as an Ebook. “Sapphire Universe” is a Contemporary Romance novel for adults, because lets face it, I’m female. Romance is what I like to read so it’s what I’m going to write. I’ll be posting some teasers and keeping you up to date on my progress as I finish writing and editing. Thank you so much for your support, and I can’t wait for you to read “Sapphire Universe.”

Red, White, and Sensual By Bec Botefuhr Review by Harper

bec

Bec is one of my favorite authors. I love her work and she never lets me down and I know I am going to read a fantastic book when I start reading her work. And of course Red, White, and Sensual left me loving Marcus and Sierra!

This was a very juicy story. Sierra is still trying to recover from a very hard past relationship that broke her. She hides this secret and doesn’t want anyone to know about it. Marcus is a very powerful man and loves to be a dominant in everyday life and especially in the bedroom. What is Sierra to do when she is so attractive to her boss and then puts two and two together that he wants to dominate her in the bedroom.

Will she allow him to? This story was HOT, but it was also a great read! I can’t wait for book two. You can’t go wrong by reading a book by Bec, she will always leave you happy with her story and feeling very committed to the characters. I give this book 5 stars!

Teaser- Playing with Fire

I let the reality of what just happened sink in. What was I doing, I needed to be with Carter I should have never left him there tonight. I was weak and scared and I was letting fear run my life. I needed to be stronger, and I knew if I stayed with Chris he would eventually end up killing me. Could I put Carter at risk, though? He told me before he would always protect me I hope he meant it.  Chris was like fire. It was pretty to look at but if you got too close you got burnt, and if it wasn’t controlled it would destroy everything in its path. Doing what I was about to do with Carter was dangerous, but what can I say, I never had parents to warn me not to play with fire.  I waited another ten minutes just to be sure he was passed out then started putting my clothes on. I made my way outside and shut the door. FUCK! I forgot to grab my purse; I had no money, and no way to get to Carter’s house. I didn’t know anyone’s phone number so even if I found a phone to use, I had no one to call. The only option was to walk and it was about four miles to Carter’s house.  I just prayed that when I got there he was home. And that he still wanted me.
