https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24504048-the-deal



She's about to make a deal with the college bad boy...

Hannah Wells has finally found someone who turns her on. But while she might be confident in every other area of her life, she's carting around a full set of baggage when it comes to sex and seduction. If she wants to get her crush's attention, she'll have to step out of her comfort zone and make him take notice...even if it means tutoring the annoying, childish, cocky captain of the hockey team in exchange for a pretend date.

...and it's going to be oh so good


All Garrett Graham has ever wanted is to play professional hockey after graduation, but his plummeting GPA is threatening everything he's worked so hard for. If helping a sarcastic brunette make another guy jealous will help him secure his position on the team, he's all for it. But when one unexpected kiss leads to the wildest sex of both their lives, it doesn't take long for Garrett to realize that pretend isn't going to cut it. Now he just has to convince Hannah that the man she wants looks a lot like him.

I enjoyed The Deal, its that classic read where boy asks girl for tutoring and because of who he is he thinks he’s got it in the bag ONLY he doesn’t. Girl turns boy down and boy is persistent so he refuses to take no for an answer. Because boy is smart he pays attention to what catches the girls eye and devises a plan to make them both get what they want ONLY it backfires. Now boy really wants girl and he has to prove to her that she wants him too!

‘Something’s happening to me. I can’t stop kissing him. He’s too addictive. And even though this might have started with me somewhat in charge, I’m no longer in control.’ -Hannah


My Thoughts
I saw a friend post a small excerpt from this book on facebook and it had me laughing so I immediately went to 1-click! Garrett and Hannah clicked from day one even though it comes across as irritation on her part… In my opinion she was the yin to his yang from the start!

Why the book worked for me
I got dual points of view
I got some cute sexy times
The lead was a fun strong heroine
The male lead was cocky yet had his sweet moments
Despite the male lead, Garrett being coveted by the campus female population Hannah was able to resist a lot longer than I would have ;)
And last but not least, there was a splice of darkness tucked in the story and still my two leads are victors!

Overall , I thought the book was fun, fast paced and gave great secondary characters. I look forward to book 2, The Mistake!


My Ratings
Characters- Sweet, Sexy with tons of witty banter
Writing Style- Good
Plot/Storyline- A deal is struck between Garrett and Hannah in order to help Hannah catch another guys attention. Only Garrett decides he wants Hannah alllll for himself!
Steam Factor- Lo-Med-Hi I say High, On a scale of 1-10 I say 7.5
Entertainment Level- On a scale of Lo-Med-Hi I would say HIGH, I was very much entertained!
Overall- I L O V E D IT!!!











REVIEW for Saving Jay by E.M. Abel

18331185




Jay
My life was a dark and desolate place. Consumed by work and full of regret, loneliness had become my closest friend. Ink and a tattoo machine were my therapy, a way to claim my own skin with the art that I loved.
The day I walked into her shop, I knew I’d found what I needed.
The light I’d been looking for.

Jade
When I first looked into those blue eyes I saw a depth behind them that I wanted to explore. Jason “Jay” Clarke was more than a perfectly pressed suit and dimpled smile. He was a man with a heart of gold drowning in the weight of his world.
He wanted me to mark him.
I never expected him to soothe my aching heart.

When our worlds collide and Jay begins to fall apart, will my love be enough to save him?

**WARNING: Not recommended for younger readers due to sexual content and language.

This book is Rated ‘W’ for Well Done!
4.5 HEARTS out of 5
Contemporary Romance


I had the pleasure of meeting the wealthy sexy as all hell business man Jason Clarke in Freeing Asia which was the first book in the freeing series. His character left more than an impression. Jay was UNFORGETTABLE. The small taste of him was not enough; so when E.M. Abel announced he would be getting his own book the countdown had begun.

The most eligible bachelor
Coming from a prominent and wealthy family Jay along with the Clarke name is well known. Jay finds himself being set up on some blind dates by his mother much to his dismay. However he entertains his mother by going on each and every date. Trust me when I say that he does NOT need her help finding the one for him. He LITERALLY walks right up to her.

Jade Holliday left Boston and has returned to Virginia Beach after her relationship with her ex-boyfriend went bad. She reopened a local Tattoo shop and has business pouring in. With a broken heart on the mend Jade now has her guard up when it comes to the opposite sex. Yet and still when a well dressed handsomely suited up Jason comes walking in looking to get inked she can’t help but fall for his charm.


Jay needs a woman strong enough to save him because on the outside everything in his world looks good but on the inside behind closed doors not so much… Jade finally meets a guy who will be honest with her no matter what. But can she save him from the dark place he’s found himself in.


The Characters:
Jay- The first on site physical description of Jason Clarke and actually getting to know the man who is Jay TWO totally different people… Yes, he is a sexy well suited up business man but underneath is a tatted up dominate alpha male who leaves nothing to the imagination. He lives out his desires and I love that about him!
Jade- A girl we all would love to know! She’s fun, sexy, has no filter and will often speak her mind at will. What I loved about her was the way she easily decided to live and love again by opening herself up in just about every way to Jay regardless of what happened in her past.

Together these two are explosive!

Readers also get introduced to some new secondary characters one of which I’d like to get to know better ;)

My Thoughts
Told in dual points of view E.M. Abel keeps her characters relatable with true to life situations. She has fun with them within the story lines but is not afraid to delve a little deeper and pull on your heart strings. The writing is great, Abel put the main characters chemistry on display and it was INCREDIBLE! As we all know chemistry is sooo important and she nailed it! These characters are sure to capture the hearts of its readers.

My Ratings
Characters- Sweet, Sexy and Relatable
Writing Style- Good
Plot/Storyline- After experiencing heartbreak two people find themselves falling for each other. One saving the other with some good old tlc(tender loving care)
Steam Factor- Lo-Med-Hi I say High, On a scale of 1-10 I say 8
Entertainment Level- On a scale of Lo-Med-Hi I would say Medium
Overall- I loved it!

Book Blitz: #FireDownBelow by Debra Anastasia


Dove Glitch is embarrassed about everything above her knees and below her belly button. When she has to fill a delicate, embarrassing prescription the last thing she needs is a sexy-as-hell (and brand spanking new) pharmacist behind the counter.


Johnson Fitzwell’s first day of his dream career also happens to coincide with the exact moment Dove needs her feminine meds filled. His glorious voice is way too loud–as in, he should be counting down the hits with Ryan Seacrest kind of loud. Thanks to Johnson’s handsome face and gorgeous jaw line, Dove dives headlong into her waking nightmare and asks for a vagina-scented cream.


How could she not fall for him? Dove's only active goal now is to get Johnson to kiss her right on the lips. Either set. However, his horrible girlfriend is one of many obstacles preventing her from making that fantasy a reality. When Dove defends Johnson in the most unhygienic, unconventionally gross way in the middle of a crowded restaurant, their tender, slightly tantric relationship is off to a galloping, farting start.


Each print copy of this book will be dipped in holy water by my mom, and glared at by my father as he purses his lips. Neither will help. So, drop your pants and turn to the left and cough. I hope you're not allergic to latex, because it’s time to fill your prescription. Anally.

I was going to say that this book should come with a warning but it already does, not just from Debra but from lots of other authors and bloggers too.

This book was like reading Debra's twitter feed in book form.  Seriously, if you follow Debra on social media you will already be semi- prepared for the ride that this story will take you on, if you don't follow her then you are well and truly going to wonder what the hell is going on!

No subject or orifice is off limits in this crazy story that will have you laughing so much you will pee your pants and also possibly have you on the verge of sharting.  I am not kidding so be warned.
Okay so we have the lovely Dove.  She works at the local park, looking after one of the children's rides. In her apartment building is a guy called Duke who she is kind of friends with, by default - he leaves his door open so she can't avoid walking it every day and seeing him.  Also residing in this building are the Anastasia's.  Yep you read this correctly, Debra not only wrote this book but she is in the story too.

And lastly there is Johnson.  He is the new pharmacist down at Save Mart who seems to speak quite  loudly to the customers filling their prescriptions, he has no idea that he is completely humiliating them about their various health issues.  So when Dove goes in to get some cream for down below she is horrified to see that there is a new pharmacist, he is a man and he is gorgeous.  Now the whole shop full of customers are about to be enlightened to her condition.

I'm not going to say any more about the story because you have to read it to believe it.  There are so many inappropriate and hilarious moments in this book that I had to take a break just to breathe and empty my bladder.  This is one hell of a ride and you will finish with a sense of "WTF did I just read?"

Honestly, if you are looking for something completely different and bodily functions don't freak you out then read this.  Oh there are quite a few cats too!

I give this outrageous story 4 stars


Oh God. We’re talking about me being naked, in the shower with cooter cream. Please world, end. Kill me.

“I know it’s not soap. I just… if it’s scented… I can’t do scented. Flowers and stuff
like that. Fruit-flavored soaps make… things… burnish.” She could tell from the
peeks at his face Mr. Fitzwell had never stepped foot in bath and lotion store,
wanting to try the array of fun fragrances. Nor had he purchased Peppermint
Candy shower gel, foamed up his nether regions, and felt like he had dipped
them in lava. Dove crossed and uncrossed her legs at the memory.


Mr. Fitzwell seemed concerned. “Okay, just a heads-up. It’s definitely not good to
put any fruits or plant life near your genitals.” He made a V with his hands
and formed his own pretend vagina in front of his pants.


Dove covered her eyes and tried to defend herself because now she could hear the
sickly older woman beating her supporters with a purse.


Dove’s mumbling got louder with her embarrassment. “I don’t put weird things down… there. Just make sure that the cream’s vagina-scented. Just plain. For
vaginas.” She kept her eyes on the counter.

There are a lot of eyes in Debra Anastasia’s house in Maryland. First, her own creepy
peepers are there, staring at her computer screen. She’s made two more sets of eyes with her body, and the kids they belong to are amazing. The poor husband is still looking at her after 17 years of marriage. At least he likes to laugh. Then the freaking dogs are looking at her—six eyeballs altogether, though the old dog is blind. And the cat watches her too, mostly while knocking stuff off the counter and doing that internal kitty laugh when Deb can’t catch the items fast enough. 

           Debra has a smattering of books in a few genres. There are two in the Seraphim Series and three in the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood Series with a prequel, Poughkeepsie Begins in the near future. Fire Down Below is the first in the comedic Gynzaule Series. The second, Fire in the Hole, will be published in late 2015. The Revenger, a dark paranormal romance will debut this summer. And last, a novella called Late Night with Andres is special because 100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. (So go get it right now, please!) You can find her at DebraAnastasia.com and on Twitter @Debra_Anastasia. But be prepared...

"So…I came up with a
plan. 
I sat the brothers down and gave them my speech; we’d become
male escorts. 

The house was split. 
The single dudes thought it was great. The guys with the steady
girlfriends told the single dudes they were insane. 
I promised them all we could make it work without hurting
anybody. But we had to be smart about it. We had to keep it off campus. We had
to keep it a secret. And in order to do so, we had to target those who wanted
it kept a secret as much as we did. 
Our target: Filthy rich, unsatisfied, horny housewives. 
Keep it high class, so to speak. 
And thus began BTC, or Boy Toy Corporation.
Crazy, right?
Crazy genius.”
