Point of Submission by: Remy Landon

As I was reading Point of Submission by Remy Landon, I was reminded of the curious and intoxicating game of dating. You know the game where the girl, Cassandra Larson, meets the boy, Carlo Leone, and where the girl plays hard to get and the guy is relentless in his pursuit but yet has ulterior motives hidden behind truckloads of charm and smoldering good looks. Yep, that's the game I was reminded of here in the novel.  However, whichever role these two took on to play this game and regardless of what they initially thought about themselves, both Cassandra and Carlo began a free fall into the land of “I like you more than I like you”.

For Cassandra, a waitress and stable hand, men are untrustworthy and cheaters. She is still trying to overcome the betrayal of her father and her ex-boyfriend. While on the other hand Carlo is a CEO of his family’s business and is adored by all, his employees, his sister, and every breathing woman that catches a glimpse of him. However, there is something a little off about him besides the game he and his best homie plays to manipulate women to submit to them. That includes random nightmares and words that go unspoken and awkward conversations that seem to just stop when talking about his love life. Carlo has set his eyes on Cassandra as the next contestant of his twisted game and all things seem to be going smoothly according to all of his twisted and infinite “man knowledge” until Cassandra unknowingly began to thaw the ice box in his chest where his heart use to be as he begins develop feelings and a conscious.

Release Day Blitz: The Wild Side

Author: R.K. LILLEY

Alasdair Masters is in a rut. He just hit forty, has been nearly celibate for the past year, and his life has turned into a daily sequence of lonely patterns that revolve around avoiding human contact. 

His tidy life is turned on its head when a hot young blonde at the gym that’s been pseudo-stalking him decides to rock his world. A very young blonde. Way, way too young for him. The problem is, he can’t seem to tell her no, and she just keeps coming back for more. 

It doesn’t help that he’s ninety percent sure she’s a criminal, and still, he can’t seem to turn her down.  What is a dull introvert to do when a chaotic cyclone that oozes sexuality comes twisting into his life? 

At first, he thinks she’ll give him a heart attack, but after his twenty-year marriage ended a year ago, he’s been a little lost, and when she comes crashing into his life, he realizes that he’s never felt more alive. 

Is a walk on the wild side just what he needs to get his on track or a disaster in the making? Is it possible for someone that much younger to be just what he needs, or is she a fortune hunter, as everyone keeps telling him? Is it his hormones telling him that the mysterious younger woman is the one, or could it be more?

Bared by: Stacey Kennedy

Of all the books I have read that explored then erotic lifestyle known as BDSM, I must say that Bared by Stacey Kennedy gave me the reader a very realistic, "everyday people" perspective of the kink-foolery that commence for members of this community. Bared jumped right into it on page one, as we were introduced to Master Aidan and Cora Adams, during a scene at Club Sin. You can sense a connection between these two that go far beyond Dom and Sub. However, it isn't until Cora has an emotional breakdown that Aidan gains this certain urgency to discover what it is that she is hiding from him. 

However, the real story began outside of the club where these two led very separate and "normal" lives during the week. Cora is a loving aunt, sister, and a compassionate social worker. While Aiden, is a devoted son and successful attorney who is still in love with his fiance that was killed in a tragic accident. But when the weekend arrives the tom-kinkery ensues and these two transform into members of Club Sin and are exclusive to each other. They only "play" with each other until everyone except Aidan sees that Cora has fallen head over heels for him. Aidan then decides he and Cora need to spend some time together outside of the club to reconnect, however, Cora falls even harder for him and Aidan is still oblivious to her feelings him and his own for her. 

Cover Reveal: Point of Submission






Cassandra Larsen is not the type to give in. But Carlo Leone is not the type to give up. The 27 year old CEO of a prominent industrial company, Carlo is rich. Powerful. And devastatingly handsome. Tragic events in his past have caused him to be guarded, to view women as playthings in a provocative game he and his colleague created. When Carlo meets 21 year old Cassandra at the horse stable he owns, he is instantly drawn to her beauty and feisty nature, but beneath her spunk, there is vulnerability and want. She will be a challenge--a perfect candidate for the contest. 

Wary of relationships due to her rocky history, Cassandra is determined to resist Carlo’s smoldering eyes and maddening charm. Will she surrender? And will Carlo discover that this has become more than just a game--before it’s too late? 

As a child, Remy was an avid reader and writer, bringing stacks of books everywhere she went and scribbling stories in a thick spiral notebook.

She heard somewhere that you should have a career based on what you loved to do when you were 10, and she would love nothing more than to follow that advice.

Lovely Trigger by: R.K. Lilley

THE IMPACT: Tristan hit rock bottom, and no one felt the impact harder than Danika. She was forced to see, in the most brutal of ways, that love does not conquer all. Bruised, bloody, and broken she had to walk away.

THE AFTERMATH: Picking up the pieces of your life after a tragedy is a daunting prospect, and that’s considering you still own all of the pieces. But what if you don’t? What if someone else owns those pieces, and those pieces are a part of your soul?
You dig deep and work with what you’ve got.
That’s what Danika told herself and believed, every single day, for years.
Tristan and Danika’s love had failed every test that life had thrown at them. She couldn’t forget that, not for one second. And if those tests had been overly harsh, well, she wasn’t one to wallow in self-pity. The failure was the thing she had to focus on. The failure was the lesson. She had no intention of working so hard to make it out of hell without learning that lesson well.

THE REUNION: Over six years after the night that changed everything, Danika finds herself forced to spend the weekend constantly in Tristan’s company, as they attend the wedding of two of their dearest friends. It’s been long enough that she feels they can be friendly again without it destroying her peace of mind, but just a small amount of time in his presence has her remembering something she had forced herself to forget: There’d been a reason she’d gone through hell with this man, for this man, some true good to precede the bad.
She shocks herself by quickly giving in to a hunger that she never imagined could still consume her.
Even the best intentioned denial has a breaking point.

THE HARSH REALITY: After everything that’s happened, the rise and the fall, the pain and the aftermath, can these two navigate the waters of acute regret, survive the trials of coming face to face with all that they have lost, and find the strength to try again?

Why is life always filled with choices?

But he wants her to choose...Will she give him up to follow her dreams, or give up her dreams to follow him...

Learning to Fly by: Misha Elliott

I must begin by stating that although I work with young adults, on a college campus, reading about them is not necessarily something I seek out regularly. However, occasionally, there is a title that catches my attention and Learning to Fly by Misha Elliott happened to be one of them this week. In this novel, Sophia Marshall is the main character that has had a less than perfect upbringing by her single mother Angie, although she was the mother, at times, appeared to be, just as old as her daughter as she tried to simply try.

 Angie moved Sophia around a lot and on this most recent move something unusual happens, both mother and daughter finds themselves H-A-P-P-Y. Angie, falls in love with their unsuspecting landlord Larry and Sophia is swept clean off her feet by the star QB Alex Matthews. While love is in the air for both mother and daughter, they both come of age and learn to love themselves and then each other. However, although Sophie has broken out of her preverbal cocoon and has metamorphosed in to a butterfly, she has this underlying fear of being like her mother.

 Now there is this Alex. This kid, Alexander Matthews is just as dreamy as any high school quarterback should be with family and friends that love him dearly. His father is overbearing and wants to live out his football dreams through Alex and sees Sophia as a distraction. Driven to please his father, Alex make decisions that brings happiness to everyone else leaving nothing left for himself. So after a few wardrobe, car and name changes, Sophie and the now Zander are away at college and things get a little interesting to say the least.
