“Who just stole my thunder across the Hafton airwaves, you ask? Right now, right this very second, listeners, I have Hafton’s one-and-only, the main man with the ball in hand, Blane Steele is in the studio. Mark my words—he’ll not only steal the ball, but your lady’s heart too. Watch out, gentlemen, the Stealer is in the house!”
— Sonny Be Knocking Boots, Hafton Radio 96.9

Coed antics.
Chaos.
Angst-ridden twists in fate.

Caterina is an intern. Sonny is her shock-jock boss. And Blane is a good-hearted baller…except when he steps on the court. Between on-air dares, an evil feminist professor, a straight-shooter of a coach, and rumors from the league surrounding Steele, these three are destined to screw it all up.

Rather than a love triangle, this is a friends-to-lovers story where the disc jockey acts as the catalyst, and a basketball player finds his life transformed when center court intersects with love.

Review and Giveaway for Baller by Vi Keeland





Meet Brody Easton in 
THE BALLER!
A standalone Contemporary Romance novel by
New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Vi Keeland

NOW AVAILABLE



The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room.  
It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.
The famed quarterback decided to bare all.  
And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets. 
No.  The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question.  On camera.  
The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me.
When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me.
But I don’t date players. 
And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football.  
I’d date an athlete.  
It’s the other kind of player I don’t date.  
You know the type.  Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid.

Brody Easton was the ultimate player.
Every woman wanted to be the one to change him.
But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for.
Turned out, I was that girl.
Simple right?
Let’s face it.  It never is.
There’s a story between once upon a time and happily ever after… 
And this one is ours.



A new song had just started, and I was enjoying his company when a voice behind me said, “Can I cut in?”
My head whipped around, even though I had no doubt whom the gravelly voice belonged to.
Michael was gracious. “I hate to share. But I suppose I have been hogging the most beautiful woman at the event.” He let go of my hand and stepped back with a gentlemanly nod. “Thank you for the dance, Delilah.”
Again Brody Easton had caught me off guard. Before I knew it, I was dancing with the arrogant jerk.  He wrapped his arms around me and pulled my body tight against his. Way tighter than Michael had held me.
“Good to see you again, Lois Lane.”
The man had balls; I had to give him that. I looked him straight in the eyes. “Nice to see you with clothes on, Easton.”
“Do you prefer me without?”
“I prefer you on the other side of the room.”
He chuckled. It was a hearty laugh. “That’s what happens sometimes when you decide you want to hang out in the men’s locker room.”
I tried to pull back, but he tightened his grip and held me in place. I craned my neck. “Let go of me.”
“No.”
“No?”
“That’s right. No.”
“I can scream at the top of my lungs.”
“I’d like to hear you scream.” His tone made it clear he meant he wanted me underneath him while I was doing the screaming.
“You’re an asshole. You know that?”
“I do. You asked me that yesterday. For a reporter, you should really try changing up your questions more frequently.”
My eyes bulged.
Easton shifted his hand down to the small of my back before twirling us around the dance floor. Figures the prick can dance.
“Are you seeing anyone?”
“You can’t be serious?”
He ignored my comment. “Would you like to have dinner tonight?”
“We just ate.”
“Dessert at my place, then?”
I couldn’t help but laugh. “Did you hit your head at the game yesterday?”
“On a diet, huh?”
 “Yeah. That’s it. I don’t want to go to your place for dessert because I’m on a diet.”
“Well, that’s just a shame.”
  
I stepped away from my normal reading with this book.  From the very first teaser that I saw, I was excited to get my hands on it.  I couldn’t wait! 

Brody Easton is a professional football player for The Steel, he is known for a lot of things and relationships is not one of them, so when he sees Delilah for the first time, he can’t wait to add a mark to the bed post with her!

‘Every time I see you, I expose myself to you.’ He flashed me his trademark smile. ‘That’s how we show girls we like them where I’m from.’ ‘Where are you from, the jungle?’ ‘Brooklyn.’


Delilah is a sports reporter, and she is damn good.  She was born with football in her blood and she made it a point to know her stats.  Especially ones that others wouldn’t know.  She just got a promotion, and her job assignments are to interview the Steel football players, and she gets more than she bargained for with Brody.

“Nice to see you in pants for a change.”
“I can take them off if you like.”



When Delilah finally wears Brody down to try something more than just a wham-bam-thankyou-ma’am, it begins to show that there is more beneath his shallow exterior.  He is a pretty generous individual.  With his time, and with his funds.  Besides football he has another love.  Marlene.  An elderly lady with Alzheimers, he visits every week.  My heart completely melted with their interactions.

Of course both Brody and Delilah are dealing with things from their pasts, and it always seems that these things come up at the most inopportune time.  I cheered for them together.  They fit.  They just work so well, and my heart hurt with some of their battles.

One thing with books sometimes and their teasers, is just like movies all the best are played out.  Let me tell you that is not the case with The Baller.  If you could see my copy, you would see that half the book is highlighted. I loved, LOVED the constant banter between the Hero and Heroine.  I found myself chuckling out loud at something that was said.  And the innuendos!  Gah, Brody Easton is cocky!  I found myself giddy, and smirking.  Shaking my head like, “Omg he did not just go there.  Yup, he sure did!”

The Baller was a refreshing change of pace for me.  Not only was it a book out of my norm with the sports aspect; Vi Keeland is also a new to me author.  I loved her writing style and will now be making sure to add her to my list of must read authors.  And you guys should do the same!  Grab this book, and then I dare you to tell me you didn’t feel the same way!





Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn't change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work.  She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!

❁❁❁Cover Reveal & Giveaway❁❁❁Wherever It Leads by Adriana Locke




Title: Wherever It Leads
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Kari March Designs
 Release Date: February 15, 2016

Smooth. Sexy. Irresistible.

Those qualities equal only one thing.

Big. Freaking. Trouble. 

Brynne Calloway knows that anything that seems too good to be true usually is. Fenton Abbott and his cashmere voice, Adonis body, and a magnetism like no other clearly falls into that category. But what’s life without a little risk?

It was supposed to be a rebound, an uncomplicated escape from reality. But nothing ever goes as planned. Fenton turns out to be so much more … in ways Brynne never sees coming.






I pull out a cute emerald green dress. I brought a bright yellow bikini that would look really cute under it. Tossing my things around in the suitcase, I come up empty handed. Staring at my luggage, I realize I don't see any of the five bikinis I brought.

Dashing into the closet, I look on the rack where I hung the red one up from yesterday.

Gone.

"That fucker."

"Who?"

I spin around to see Fenton leaning against the doorframe. His blue tie is loose, his jacket missing, his hair a mussed-up, yummy mess.

"The thief," I say, hands on my hips, trying to hide my desire to wrap my legs around his waist and kiss the hell out of him.

"We have a thief?" He watches me with complete sincerity, like he has no clue what I'm talking about.

"We do. And he seems to have a penchant for my bikinis."

"Huh."

"Yeah," I say, traipsing over to him. "And nobody likes a thief."

"You know what else nobody likes?" He shoves off the frame and wraps his hands around my waist, lacing his fingers together in the dip at the small of my back. "Girls that can't listen."

"I’ve never been a good listener,” I sigh dramatically. “I just make things happen ... like when my bikinis get stolen, I just call the concierge and have them bring me another one up. Something skimpy and very, very sexy.”

He smacks my ass, making me yelp.

“And I charged it to your room since you stole my others. Thief."

“Did you really have them bring you another one?” he chuckles, a sinful smirk on his face. He’s trying to figure out how to handle me, yet still get his way.

“No,” I give in, as his lips find the crook of my neck. “But I hadn’t ruled it out.”

"You're going to make me crazy, you know that?"
 


He brushes his lips to mine and, in a split second, has me forgetting all about the bikinis. I’m focused solely on getting him out of his suit.

COVER REVEAL for Adriana Locke ~ Wherever It Leads




Title: Wherever It Leads
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Kari March Designs

 Release Date: February 15, 2016


Smooth. Sexy. Irresistible.

Those qualities equal only one thing.


Big. Freaking. Trouble. 

Brynne Calloway knows that anything that seems too good to be true usually is.

 Fenton Abbott and his cashmere voice, Adonis body, and a magnetism like no other

 clearly falls into that category. But what’s life without a little risk? 


It was supposed to be a rebound, an uncomplicated escape from reality. But nothing


 ever goes as planned. Fenton turns out to be so much more … in ways Brynne never 

sees coming.








The plane begins its ascent, the engines roaring to life. Fenton whips out a file from his briefcase and gives it a once-over. Again, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do and it's killing me.
I pull my Kindle out of my bag and try to become invested in a second-chance romance about a rock star, but it's nearly impossible sitting next to him. Each time I become engrossed in the words, he moves and my senses are assaulted by his proximity. The third time this happens, I search the ebook for 'cock' and start reading a sex scene. I need some form of undoing and if that has to be done via fictional character, so be it.
The heroine is taking the hero into her mouth when a low rumble radiates beside me. Startled, I look up and see Fenton smirking.
"What?" I push the power button on my e-reader and place it on my lap. I realize the jet has leveled off and it's quiet in the cabin. "What are you looking at me like that for?"
"Just wondering what you're reading."
"Why?"
"Because," he says, his eyes darkening, "your entire posture changed. Your lips parted, your breathing became labored. I'm intrigued."
"I don't think you'd be interested in this."
"Trust me—if it gets that kind of reaction out of you, I'm definitely interested."
Dragging in a lungful of air, I remember Presley's pep talk and decide I have nothing to lose.
I switch on the tablet and find the page. "She drew his cock into her mouth, stroking his shaft as she licked a pool of semen from the tip." I glance over my shoulder and his eyes are wide. I wink. "A growl escaped his throat as she stroked his velvety length, running her tongue—"

"Enough." He snatches the Kindle from my grasp and places it on his briefcase. "Fucking hell, Brynne. Do you want fucked right here?"
