Blurb for Tina Donahue’s Make Me Surrender (menage):
She has a proposition…to win their attention, passion, hearts.
For over a year, Mercy’s had her eye on Travis and Dutch, two of the hottest guys on the Oregon coast. Dark and dangerously virile, Travis owns a saloon that caters to bikers. Dutch looks like one, right down to his impressive tats, and operates a motorcycle repair shop on the premises.When a position opens in the saloon’s kitchen, Mercy sees a way to be near these sinfully sexy men, wanting the job and lodging, her cabin snuggled between theirs.Travis isn’t so sure about having Mercy nearby. She’s deliciously curvy, but too nice. He’s into temporary fun. To Dutch, forever is a dirty word.Imagine their surprise when sweet little Mercy encourages wild nights of carnal pleasure with a dash of bondage and spanking…followed by friendship and tenderness.Before she’s through, these tough guys will be the ones who’ve surrendered.

Excerpt #1:
Shaking off her uncertainty, Mercy pulled a plate from beneath the counter. On it was her gift to Travis and Dutch. Treats she always offered them when they came here.Travis reached the counter first, his long fingers wrapped around a bottle of Lipton’s Iced Tea and three packages of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.Mercy’s mouth went dry. She imagined his hands on her, the pads of his thumbs dragging over her nipples, sending a thrum of delight through her body.She managed a wobbly smile. He produced an interested grin, making a dimple in his beard-shadowed cheek. Her belly fluttered and her heart sank. His attention was on the plate she’d set out, not her.“Hey,” she murmured, soft and warm.His gaze flicked up. A flash of heat burned in his dreamy eyes before it faded beneath what appeared to be confusion. As though he hadn’t expected that sultry greeting to have come from her. “Hey.”His voice was so fucking deep and rough, Mercy had difficulty breathing. Jill made a noise that sounded too turned on. Mercy kicked her friend’s running shoe; an order for her to beat it.Jill pivoted and hurried off, her narrow shoulders drawn to her skinny body, her blonde ponytail bouncing over her thin neck.“Want one?” Mercy breathed to Travis. She stroked the lip of the plate with the same care she would his balls and cock. If he’d only let her.Travis studied her breasts as though he’d never noticed them before, which he hadn’t. Given the unusual summer heat, the air conditioning had kicked on, making it nicely chilly in here. The cold air had pebbled Mercy’s nipples against her stretchy cotton tee. When she’d seen him and Dutch pull up, she’d ditched her shapeless Fast Fill jacket.Travis’s sexy smile said he appreciated her boobs.Mercy pulled back her shoulders to give him an even better look at her chest.Joining them, Dutch dropped packs of M&M’s and Lay’s potato chips on the counter. “What’s this?” He regarded the plate.Travis dragged his attention back to the gourmet cupcakes. Mercy had baked them this morning, hoping he and Dutch would show up as they usually did on Sunday afternoons. Their only time off.“Breakfast and dessert,” she cooed.Travis lifted one dark eyebrow. Dutch had finally discovered her tight-as-hell nipples and remained riveted on them. “Huh?”Mercy’s skin prickled with excitement and more than a little lust. “Technically, they’re bacon and banana cupcakes, with maple, peanut butter, and bacon topping.”She ran her finger over the edge of one then offered a taste of the frosting to both men. Eager to know who’d lick her first. “Try it. It’s as good as the other stuff I’ve given you.”They reached for her at the same time, their hands bumping each other. Dutch curled his fingers around her wrist. Before he could lift her hand, Travis drew Mercy’s finger between his lips.She blinked wildly. Her pulse pounded out of control at the wet heat of his mouth and Dutch running his thumb over her wrist. Travis suckled gently, swirling his tongue around Mercy’s nail, driving her crazy with need.“Hmm.” His prominent Adam’s apple bobbed with his swallow.She fought an insane urge to lick it and his bristly throat.“You should try this,” he said to Dutch.“I was about to.” He twisted his mouth at her finger still damp from Travis’s awesome tongue. Dutch kept stroking her skin, until he seemed to realize what he was doing. After releasing her, he grabbed a cupcake and devoured half of it in one bite. Frosting clung to the corners of his mouth.Mesmerized, Mercy watched him chew.He swallowed. “Fuck—I mean, damn, this is good. Even better than the other ones you’ve made.”Travis nodded as he gobbled his cupcake. Another strand of hair swayed forward, grazing his unshaven cheek.Sex radiated from them, weakening every part of Mercy’s body, making her reckless and bold.“I have a proposition,” she whispered.Dutch’s chews slowed. Travis forced down a swallow and frowned. “What? Didn’t hear that.”She spoke louder. “A proposition. I have one.”

Cyborg PR Blitz Banner Cyborg Boxset by Charity Parkerson
Cyborg #1 & 2
Publication Date: August 15, 2014
Genres: Erotica, Sci-fi
Pre-order: NookiBooksAll Romance E-booksSmashwords Cyborg Cover

Add to Goodreads.

Synopsis: (Science Fiction, love story, apocalyptic, alpha males, strong females, Cyborgs, futuristic, F/M & M/M, sexy romance)

Books One and Two of the "Cyborg" series, in one place.

Generation Automation is upon us. The craving to own the latest and greatest technology in the name of convenience has created a world where man and machine live alongside one another in an unsteady peace. Humans still rule for now. However, an underground movement has begun that will change everything.

For every arising enemy against humanity, a countermeasure is born--
Alexia is one of the few humans left who'd rather not have an android hanging over her shoulder all day. Unfortunately, when her job lands her on a list of people targeted by terrorists, she's assigned a Machine Industry Leading Edge Sentinel, or “Miles,” for protection. Per Miles programming, he shouldn't be able to override Alexia's commands. However, he defies her at every turn. The lines between reality and fantasy blur as Alexia's attraction for the mysterious android grows. Unfortunately, when she goes on a mission to seek the truth, what she learns might get her killed.

A world on edge...
The “Cyborg” team has kept one eye glued to the unrest inside the A.I. community for some time. Each member understands the ramifications of a revolt. If war is declared, they could find themselves on the opposite side of the law. One tiny detail changes Miles’ stance. Solving the case he’s worked since meeting Alexia could be the deciding factor. Left with no other choice, Miles orders his second in command to move to plan ‘B’—Dr. Kiston Beck.

A woman caught in the middle...
Kiston has stood with the Androids since her teenage years. Her inside knowledge of Cryo-Zone—an all-droid community—could mean the difference between a war lost or won. Convincing her to go against all she believes to be right is another matter.

Kiston has no idea what the Cybernetics Agency thinks she possesses. There hasn’t been a human alive who cared to hear her opinion in years. The one detail she’s absolutely sure about is that they sent the wrong team member if they hoped to seduce the information from her.

Cyborg Two is every woman’s dream. His wide shoulders, alpha ways and smoldering glances leave her breathless. Unfortunately, his biggest flaw is one too many for Kiston. He believes she’s crazy.
But is it too late?

After a botched kidnapping, a concussion and near-death experience, can Miles and his team still convince Kiston to join them, or will their brand of friendship end up destroying the world?

Blurb: Welded with a love for firearms and an insatiable hunger for retribution, Maxus Manning hunted the beasts that preyed on females. But when his latest mission involved a young woman whose lovely attributes fires his own blood, Max finds himself wanting nothing more than to turn beast, himself. His polar opposite, Marina Knightly, oozed with charm and sweet innocence, turning his sinister world upside down. Would the girl of his dreams accept him as he is or will his vengeance be his downfall?
It took a lot of restraint trying not to ogle her nakedness when he removed his coat. But her loveliness won over. She had some body. He scooped her up and marched to the bathroom, shaking his head and muttering about how in God’s name he suddenly became such a pervert. He had to get her to wake from the drug. The sooner her head was clear, the better it would be—for the both of them. It seemed as though the greater forces above were testing his strength by dropping a very gorgeous, very naked and very horny woman, whom he was not allowed to touch, right into his lap. How was that just? He deserved a fucking medal.“In the shower you go.” He let her go slowly to test if her legs could handle her weight and when she remained standing, albeit a little hunched over, hugging herself, he took a step back. Nice ass. Max was beginning to think he was going nuts. For all he knew she could be ten. One could never tell with girls these days. He averted his gaze. “Cold.”“Just a few more minutes,” he said. Apparently, she didn’t agree. Turning back to face him, she toddled forward and burrowed into his chest, her arms still wrapped around herself. She shook. Max turned off the water and reached for a towel, one she quickly turned into a cocoon. “So cold.”“I know. Here,” he said, placing her more gently onto the bed this time. He pulled the covers over her, tucking the edge under her chin. “Go to sleep.”  “Help me.”“You’re going to have to sleep it off.”“Please, help me.”“I am, lady!”The covers came off before he could step back, and the towel followed. All this done with her eyes closed. Finally, when she was swathed in nothing but her heavy breath, she shuddered. Then, like a goddess’s ritual to reduce sane men to something akin to a pack of wolves during mating season, the writhing began once again.Amazon Buy Link:

I was tagged by Neil Winnington to take part in the Meet my Main Character blog tour. I need to send a huge thank you to him for the invitation. For that reason, you get to meet the man hottie in Unbalanced.

This is Kurt...yum! Here we go...

1.) Tell us a little about your main character?

Kurt Travis is an underground MMA fighter and he's well known for his seductive abilities. His bad boy looks coupled with massive intelligence throws people off balance, allowing him to sneak under their radar and get anyone he wants. 

2.) When and where is the story set? 

Modern day Las Vegas. 

3.) What should we know about him?

Kurt has a secret. He doesn't get close to people for a reason.

4.) What is the main conflict? 

Meeting McKenna throws a huge wrench into Kurt's life. She's unaffected by his intelligence. Not only is she every bit as smart as he is, she's completely insane. Winning her while attempting to keep his balance (for once) is a challenge he can't pass up.  

5.) What is his personal goal?

For a long time, Kurt didn't have any goals beyond surviving. Meeting McKenna changes everything for him. 

6.) What are the titles of the other novels in the series?

The No Rival series in reading order:
Unattainable (not yet released)
Undamaged (not yet released)

7.) When can we expect your next book to be published?

Unattainable could release anywhere between the first of August and October. It hasn't been issued a release date yet, but it has been through edits, so it's ready to go. 

Thanks for checking out my part of the tour. Keep an eye out for Kurt. :-D

This trick has never failed him. That is, until he meets McKenna. As an author, McKenna has gone to great lengths to ensure the details of her erotic books are airtight. When Kurt challenges one of her scenes, she doesn’t hesitate to take up his offer to prove his theory. The bad boy MMA fighter appeals to her on every level. Kurt’s intelligence stimulates her mind even as his touch sets her body on fire.  In spite of those things, McKenna has no intention of adding her name to his list of ex-lovers.McKenna’s odd behavior exasperates Kurt. She is an addiction he cannot shake. But somehow the two of them make the combination of his OCD logic and her unbalanced nature work.Inside Scoop: There are a couple hot but brief male/male encounters as well as a handcuff scene that may have you reaching for the fan.
A Romantica® contemporary romance from Ellora’s Cave

By reading any further, you are stating that you are at least 18 years of age. If you are under the age of 18, please exit this site.An Excerpt From: UNBALANCEDCopyright © CHARITY PARKERSON, 2014All Rights Reserved, Ellora's Cave Publishing, Inc.She wasn’t wearing shoes. Funnily enough, it was the first detail about her that caught his eye. At a table, in public, Kurt found her shoeless state odd. There were a thousand tiny things about her he should have noticed first. Without a doubt, her plain black t-shirt, yoga pants and the overall lack of effort toward her appearance allowed her to blend into the background. It shouldn’t have mattered. Kurt wasn’t usually so blind. None of those points stole an ounce of power from her beauty. There wasn’t a hint of makeup marring her face. Blonde curls piled on her head held in place by some sort of clip. Something about her eyes held him captivated. They were unfocused as they moved across the pages of the book she held between her hands. In spite of that, he felt sure she absorbed every word, only on a different plane than others would.He moved closer. The lack of footwear became an obsession. Curiosity ate at him. He needed to know why. The coffee shop located inside a G. Richards’ Bookstore had a sign posted clearly on the front door. “No shoes. No service.” Once Kurt managed to snag the chair directly across from her, he bent at the waist. Under the guise of dropping a napkin, he peered under the edge of her table. Suspicions confirmed. His brows drew together in a frown as he sat up.After a moment of staring at the corner, he couldn’t stand it any longer.“Your feet are bare.”Lifting her gaze from the book between her hands, she blinked several times. He could practically see her dragging her mind away from whatever cloud it was on.“What?”“Your feet,” he repeated. “They have no shoes on them.”“Oh. I’d forgotten.” She immediately dismissed him by returning to her reading.“You’re inside a business. They serve food.”She didn’t bother glancing his way as she responded.“If that bothers you, I won’t mention the state of my underwear.”He had to know. “Did you forget those, as well?”That got her attention. A line formed between her eyes as if his question was too stupid for her to fathom.“How does someone forget their underwear?”“How does a person forget their shoes?” He shot back.Tilting her head to one side, she seemed to think it over for a moment before responding. “Is this a trick question?”Kurt scoffed as he reminded her of the obvious. “You’re not wearing them.”Her mouth turned up in one corner in such a way his gaze immediately shot to her lips. “I’m aware.”Unable to keep the exasperation from his voice, Kurt sighed. “You said you’d forgotten your shoes. It stands to reason then, you would know how one goes about it.”Setting her book aside, she nodded slowly as if giving his theory due consideration. “Your logic is sound,” she admitted after a moment. Finally, they were getting somewhere. She immediately ruined it by adding, “Except, I said no such thing. Therefore, I cannot help you.”There was a moment where he had nothing. He couldn’t recall a single incident where anyone had caused his mind to go blank. His brain was always on the move, slightly dissatisfied with his lot. She’d wiped him clean. Her blue eyes focused on him fully as if awaiting his next move. When he wasn’t quick enough, she released a heavy sigh.“If you must know, when I got here I realized I had on two different colored shoes so I took them off.”Without waiting to see his reaction, she flipped her book up between them, shutting him out. A part of him wanted to laugh at her confession. He was too fascinated. Not to mention, with his curiosity assuaged he really wanted to hear more about the rest.“What about your underwear?”She ignored him. He bit back a smile. His mind whirled back to life and he searched for a new way to insert himself into her company. Tilting his head, he read the title blocking her eyes from his gaze. The Ins and Outs of BDSM. Catchy title. Switching his gaze to the other items scattered across her table, he took note of another book on bondage as well as some handwritten notes. As far as he could tell by what she’d scratched out, she was either intent on rocking some dude’s world or plotting one hell of a murder.He braced his elbows on the table, lowering his voice where only she could hear. “I have handcuffs back at my place.”She set the book aside. Mimicking his pose, her eyes shone with mirth as she pitched her voice low, as well. “I have a Taser in my handbag.”Holding back his laughter, Kurt didn’t miss a beat. “Kinky,” he said, adding a wink. “I like it.”Snorting, she slapped her hand over her mouth and nose as if she couldn’t believe what she’d done.“I’m Kurt,” he offered before she could escape into her mind again.“McKenna.”
He had handcuffs. She bet he did. The only statement Kurt had made that McKenna found surprising was that they were back at his place. The in-your-face piercings, tattoos and biker boots look had her expecting him to whip them out right then and slam them down on the table between them. Why did she attract all the weirdoes? She was the weirdo whisperer. They found her everywhere she went. Of course, she was the real dumbass in the equation because she’d given him her name.“Are you studying to become a Madam?”“Where are you from?” It wasn’t an attempt to block on McKenna’s part. She really didn’t want to talk about her work with a stranger but he had an odd accent. Perhaps it was more that he didn’t have an accent at all yet he spoke as if English was not his first language.“Here and there.”He was wasting her time. She didn’t like time stealers.“I have things to do.” The words popped out. It happened more often than she liked. Still, she didn’t know him. Why should she be thrust into polite conversation? Deciding she shouldn’t, McKenna pulled her notebook closer. She didn’t know where her pen had gone.“Are you looking for this?” A triumphant smile lit his face as she spotted her pen between his fingers. He turned it over in his hands and peered closer at it. “Hmm, McKenna Jones, Bestselling Author. Interesting. Am I to assume you are the McKenna Jones who is referenced on this pen?”An inner groan sounded loud inside her head. She wanted to kick her own ass. The pens were meant for fans but nine times out of ten, she ended up keeping them for herself. She went through a lot of ink. Of course, it had never occurred to her they would lead a psycho to her door.This time she was blocking. “How am I supposed to be responsible for what you assume? You are a grown man.”His eyes hooded at her words. Damn. Hadn’t being an erotica author taught her anything? It was hard work weighing her every response to make sure it couldn’t be misconstrued once it left her mouth.“You haven’t seen the whole package…yet. I’m still capable of growing a bit more.”She could stab him in the eye. Well, probably she couldn’t but she could make him her bitch in her next book.His eyes lit with challenge. “How do you intend to make me your bitch?”Oh dear. She really needed to pay closer to what her mouth was doing while her mind was otherwise engaged. “I have no idea what you’re talking about.”His lips parted as if she’d shocked him speechless with her blatant lie. Lying was her job. Why were people surprised by it? He made an obvious attempt to recover.“You just…” he paused and a new light entered his green eyes. “Oh. I see. You’re crazy.”Ouch. McKenna dropped her gaze to the notebook shutting him out. This was why she didn’t like people. They didn’t understand. A word she’d written earlier caught her attention. Everything else disappeared. She needed to Google fetishes. These books weren’t helping. There wasn’t a single reference to any of the unique fetishes people had. She really wanted Luke to have some freaky thing he enjoyed doing in the bedroom. Of course, it couldn’t be anything too strange or she wouldn’t be able to help Lacey fall in love with him. Damn. Sometimes it was hard making characters do what she wanted. Every time she thought she had the storyline figured out one of them would end up falling for a side character instead. This damn deadline was staring her in the face. Everyone wanted the sexy fireman to end up with Lacey. Neither of her stubborn characters wanted to listen to her.McKenna was halfway through packing up her belongings before she realized Kurt was gone. An unexpected pang hit her in the chest. It was stupid. Her mind was crowded with people who wouldn’t quit talking long enough for her to have any peace. Sliding her notebook closer, she moved to flip it closed but at the last second, she spotted two words written on the page in someone else’s handwriting.“I’m sorry.”The twinge hit her again. Reaching up she rubbed the spot in her chest that was aching. It was ridiculous she should be so lonely when she was never alone. The words blurred and McKenna blinked back tears. The bastard had stolen her pen.

Lead Kylie Scott BANNER

Title: Lead (Stage Dive, #3)

Author: Kylie Scott

Publication Date: July 29, 2014

Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin

goodreads 81pip68IyiL._SL1500_  


Stay up all night with the sexy rockers in Stage Dive, the epic rock star romance series from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott, author of Lick and Play. As the lead singer of Stage Dive, Jimmy is used to getting whatever he wants, whenever he wants it, whether it's booze, drugs, or women. However, when a PR disaster serves as a wake-up call about his life and lands him in rehab, he finds himself with Lena, a new assistant to keep him out of trouble.   Lena's not willing to take any crap from the sexy rocker and is determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite their sizzling chemistry. But when Jimmy pushes her too far and Lena leaves, he realizes that he may just have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.  


“Lena, you seen my old black Led Zep shirt?” “Nope.” “You sure?” His brows became one dark cranky line. The scratches on his face were healing well, thank goodness. Though it didn’t reduce my desire to throttle his mother on a daily basis. “Yes. I haven’t seen it.” Can’t find it anywhere…” “And this is a surprise, how?” I slipped my hands into my back jean’s pockets. “Jimmy, you own more clothing than Cher, Brittney, and Elvis, put together. Things are bound to go missing.” “Sure you haven’t seen it?” “For goodness sake, what do you think, Jimmy? That I stole it to sleep in or something?” I laughed bitterly. Sure as hell, the truth deserved a good mocking. I’d sunk so despicably low. I hadn’t even meant to steal the stupid thing, but the shirt had been mixed up with my laundry a few days ago. It’d been the first top I laid my hand on after stepping out of the shower, ready to go to bed. Without thought, I’d put it on and it’d been so soft, the scent of him lingering beneath the laundry detergent. Every night since, I’d found myself in it come bedtime. My shame knew no limits. And no, I still hadn’t quit. The words still hadn’t come even close to leaving my mouth. He frowned. “No.” “That I have some deep secret longing to feel close to you resulting in my stealing your shirt like some creepy perv?” “Course I don’t fucking think that,” he replied crankily, reaching up to grip the top of the doorframe. All of his bulging muscles stretched the arms of his white T-shirt in the nicest way. It was all I could do not to start drooling, my heart beat taking up residence somewhere down between my thighs. And who could blame it? Not me. Maybe if I got laid, this would go away and things would return to normal. It’d seemed safer to avoid rubbing up against any men just in case I got carried away and started dating again. This new situation, however, changed everything. “Well, of course not! That would be crazy.” And wasn’t that the god’s honest truth? Cray-zeee. Lock me up and throw away the key because it wasn’t like I didn’t know better. “Just can’t figure out where the hell it could be.” Angels couldn’t have smiled as innocently. They might have tried, but they would have failed, the dirty-mouthed, winged, little liars. “Jimmy, I don’t know where it is. But I’ll look around for it later, okay?” “Yeah,” he said, and then added as an afterthought, “and stop looking at me weird.” “I’m not!”

My Review

I went into reading Lead with the sure knowledge I would love it, since I always love Kylie Scott’s books. On the other hand, when I left Jimmy behind in book one, I wanted to slap his face. That gave me reservations, but I trusted the author to fix it and I wasn’t disappointed. I’m not sure if anyone will ever be able to replace Mal as my favorite, but Jimmy tried. He is definitely one smoking hot lover. His dirty talking ways had me fanning my face and steaming up my ereader. On with the review:Lena has a problem keeping jobs. Her tongue refuses to obey and gets her fired more often than it should. Her rage over her sister’s betrayal and her latest job loss, land her in the home of Jimmy Ferris as his sobriety companion. Picking up at the end of book two, Jimmy is turned inside out by the loss of the woman who was like a second mother to him after his real mother abandoned him as a teenager. In his grief, his hard-nosed ways slip just long enough for Lena to get a peek at his heart. She’s hooked. As Lena’s love grew and she dug her heels in determined to strip away his walls, I was rooting for her all the way. I still wanted to punch him in the face. His sticking up for her with her sister went a long way toward winning me. By the time I got to see the man behind his hardened mask, my heart was every bit as much of a mess as Lena’s. Jimmy was simply devastating. This book was 10 times more heartfelt than its hilarious predecessors, but every bit as wonderful. If I could give it 6 stars, I would. My favorite quotes:
‘”Stop hanging around the door when I’m showering. That’s creepy.” I rolled my eyes. It wasn’t like I could see anything through the keyhole. Let’s pretend I didn’t try.”
“He lay on his stomach, ribs working hard to give him back his breath. I’d done that to him, me and my vagina. Go team.”
“My mouth, I want to kill it slowly and painfully in many and varied ways.”

Lead releases July 29th, if you haven’t pre-ordered your copy yet, why are you still reading this?

I'm happy to announce Undefeated and The Sexy & The Undead are both finalist for 2014 Readers' Favorite awards. Undaunted and Claimed by Sin are finalist for a 2014 Golden Ankh. Any time something wonderful happens in my writing career, it makes me want to get personal and tell y'all how much I love y'all. Not to mention, it makes me want to tell you how much my books mean to me.

Let's start with Undefeated. It has been the biggest surprise of all my books. I love it. It came from a dark place inside me. It's the book that has the most of me in it, even going as far as having a personal experience from my life inside. I'll let you try to guess which it is ;-) Never in my wildest dreams did I think people would react as they have to it. I thought only my family would read it. For some reason, it's been the one people have reached out to me over the most. Thank you for loving my hardened fighters as much as I have.

The Sexy & The Undead is the opposite side of the spectrum. I wrote the first in the series coming off the depression of ending my "Sinners" series. It was heartbreaking saying good bye to characters who had been with me for so long. In response, I wrote what I feel is my funniest to-date story. Ella, Samuel, Tam and Freddie kept me roaring with laughter. I know my neighbors think I'm insane and way too many times I caught myself laughing in the grocery store when I thought up a new situation for the group of crazy super-naturals. Only God knows how happy it makes me to know it has brought joy to readers. I understand not everyone who reads my books will love me. Those of you who do love my books, you've made every exposure of my soul worth it. Every bad review and doubt I've suffered--you're worth it. If I gave you an escape from the harshness of life, for even a second, then it's all been worth it.

Undaunted and Claimed by Sin are new titles. There's no way I could've guessed they'd fly straight into the award-receiving category. How do I express the level in which I'm blown away by that? There aren't enough thank yous in the world. {{HUGS}}

How He Really Feels (He Feels, Book 1)

Julianne Becker is desperately in love with her boss, Nick Matthews. She has daydreamed about him since the day she first met him a year earlier, but she is firmly stuck in the friend-zone until New Year’s Eve, when the game completely changes and she finds out how Nick really feels about her. They embark on a sexy affair that’s everything Julianne ever dreamed of... except she can’t tell anyone about it. What will happen if anyone finds out about their secret relationship? And how will her lifelong best friend, Travis Miller, react when Julianne begins a relationship with someone who isn’t him?

How He Really Feels is a novel that explores relationships and love between coworkers and friends. It contains some adult situations and is intended for mature readers.

This is the first book in the He Feels Trilogy

Pick up your copy of the WHAT TO READ AFTER FSOG GEMSTONE COLLECTION 3 here: 


“I found myself completely lost in the story and hated when it had to come to an end… Romantic and steamy, a perfect combo.” –Nikki S., Winding Stairs Book Blog
“Lisa Suzanne was able to spin a love and lust filled storyline with so much feeling that my heart felt like it was literally bursting out of my chest!” –Kelly, Kiss and Tell Reviews
“This author has an excellent way of using dialogue between the characters.” –Emily, The SubClub Books Blog
“I feel the budding of a wonderful writer in our presence.” –Desiree, The Book Bar



Who cared that I didn’t have anyone to kiss at midnight? The important thing was that this was the end of an old year and the start of a brand new one, and I had several goals in mind for this new year. The most important, of course, being Nick. I would find a way to push past this professional business friendship relationship we had formed. I would find a way to kiss him, hold him, make love to him in this new year.

It was my resolution, and I was determined to make it happen.

Everyone raised their glasses in the air and counted along, “Ten! Nine! Eight! Seven! Six! Five! Four! Three! Two! One! HAPPY NEW YEAR!” I glanced over at Lucy, whose lips were locked to Jake’s, and then Travis, who was kissing Brooke. I smiled, happy for my friends despite my lack of a man to kiss at midnight, when I felt a tap on my shoulder.

I turned around, and my heart stopped as my eyes met Nick’s. Utter shock hit me as I realized that he was actually here. And he looked fucking sexy in a black suit with a gray shirt under it, open at the collar. He had just a shadow of a beard, making him look rugged and manly, and his hair was mussed perfectly in every direction. I was so dazed that he was standing in front of me that I was rendered momentarily speechless.

The room suddenly got very quiet around me, and all I could do was stare at him. His eyes never left mine as he brought both of his hands up to cup my cheeks and I was certain at that moment that he was going to kiss me. My heart slammed into my ribs and then my eyes closed automatically as his lips brushed mine just once. Every nerve ending in my body was alight with electricity at our connection. He clutched me close against his chest in a quick embrace. “Happy New Year,” he murmured, his breath tickling close against my ear, sending shivers down my spine. And then, as if it had all been a dream, he was gone. 


Tell us a little about the book you have included in the What to Read after FSOG Gemstone Collection Three.
Lisa: I have included How He Really Feels, which is the first book I published. The follows Julianne Becker, who is in love with her boss and who has a lifelong best friend who is keeping a secret from her.
Is this book part of a series?
Lisa: Yes! It was originally intended to be a standalone, but I got so many questions about what happened next that I decided to expand the story. The first book doesn’t end in a cliffhanger, but the second and third books answer all of your questions. All three are now published and available for purchase!
Do you have any other books that you have published?
Lisa: Aside from the He Feels Trilogy, I have also published two standalone novels, Separation Anxiety and Side Effects.
When and why did you start writing?
Lisa: I have written probably since I was in high school. It has always been a hobby of mine, but I started to get serious about the idea of publishing once I got past my shyness and shared one of my books with my husband. He was the one who encouraged me to publish.
How long does it take you to write a book?
Lisa: It varies, but typically I can write a full-length novel (75-95K words) in about a month.
Are your characters or stories based on real people or completely made up?
Lisa: My characters are completely made up.
Do your character names just come to you? Or do you have to think about them?
Lisa: Typically character names just come to me. There have been a few times where I’ve had to really think about what name would fit perfectly for a character, but those tend to be secondary characters. The main ones usually just stand out to me in some way.
How do you come up with your titles?
Lisa: I agonize over titles. I had about thirty work-in-progress titles for How He Really Feels before it stuck. What I liked about it was the fact that it was ambiguous.
Is there a routine you have before you settle down to write?
Lisa: I have to have a drink (usually coffee in the morning, water during the day, and either wine, vodka, or cherry whiskey at night), and I have to have music.
Does your family know what you write?
Lisa: Yes, but it took me about six months before I told my parents my pen name. And the really funny thing is that my pen name is my first and middle name.
What would you do if your grandmother said she wanted to read your book?
Lisa: I’d give her a signed copy. I was pretty shy at first, but now that I’ve published five novels, I’m proud of what I’ve done.
While You Write:
Favorite Snack Food? Twizzlers or Pirates Booty
Drink of Choice? Water or Cherry Whiskey
Music or Silence? Music
Biggest Distraction? Facebook
Favorite Game Show?
The Price is Right
Favorite Reality Show? The Bachelor
Favorite 90s Band? Stone Temple Pilots
Whiskey or Vodka? I can’t make decisions like this
Favorite Song? Currently “Peace” by O.A.R.
Favorite book growing up? Freaky Friday


Lisa Suzanne started handwriting her books on yellow legal pads after she took a creative writing class in high school. She still has those legal pads full of stories, but now one of them is published under the title How He Really Feels. She currently works as a full time high school English teacher, and her favorite part of the year is summer. She has been blessed with the world’s best dog, a supportive family, and a husband who encouraged her to publish after reading one of her novels. She likes the advice of Ernest Hemingway’s famous quote, “Write drunk. Edit sober.”
