Mouth Karaoke Bar and Grill was founded by Christy Dilg in 2013 in the Forbidden Series. Christy decided to have an auction event supporting breast cancer awareness and donating the funds raised to the cause after the fans expressed their interest. The Mouth Rocks for the Cause Facebook event went so well that Christy decided to continue the event every year and to add Mouth in all of her upcoming books and donate portions of her book sales to the charity in that story.  Writing has always been about making a difference to Christy and Mouth is sure to add to that.
This year Mouth Rocks for the Cause will hold its third annual Facebook auction supporting breast cancer in October. The event will last a week but Mouth will be doing other things during the month to raise for the cause such as this wonderful collection “Mouth, A steamy anthology” which will feature almost twenty amazing authors together in a box set of novellas. The proceeds will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Happy Release Day! HOOKER HEELS By Ryan Ringbloom

I am so excited to share the news of Ryan Ringbloom’s 7th book launch! “Hooker Heels” is one of my very favorites by this fab author. And in case you were wondering, “Panic” is my all-time fave, so make sure to one-click that one as well. =)

Okay! Without further ado…I bring you Kenna and Zack…

Title: Hooker Heels

Author: Ryan Ringbloom

Genre: New Adult

Release Date: 10-1-15

***Synopsis***

Kenna Winston’s world revolves around money, and the men who spend it. Men are mere pawns in the game that she calls life. However, her game is about to change once she’s offered a business contract with some interesting caveats. Kenna has to decide whether she is ready to up the ante and play in the big leagues. Or decide if the proposal being offered is crossing the line, even for her. With her heels high and morals low, she wonders what will happen if her heart gets involved?

Oh that’s right, she doesn’t have one.

Zackary Knight has always had things handed to him. That’s not the life he wants. Can’t anyone see that he goes deep, that he’s more than just a shallow dollar sign? Who is this beautiful woman who just appeared on his doorstep? Is she someone he can finally open his heart up to?

Because his heart, it’s a big one.

***Excerpt***

“Perhaps you’d care to join me.” His eyes roamed down to my legs and he took a sharp breath in through his nose. He stood and extended his hand to me. “We can discuss my business some more and then maybe we can discuss yours.”

My business. I covered my gulp with a small cough. It was crystal clear what he was insinuating and yet I accepted his hand, gracefully standing from the tall stool. That was the kind of power that came with money. And at the moment, I was powerless.

“Send another bottle up please,” he all but growled, his hand on my back ushering me in the direction of the lobby.

“Right away, Mr. Parker,” the bartender acknowledged him.

Mr. Parker. That was the name of my wealthy suitor. Good to know.

A black card was slipped into a slot in the elevator and it took off to an unmarked floor on top of the hotel.

The doors opened to a posh hallway and I followed Mr. Parker to the only room on the floor. We entered the penthouse and were greeted by a butler dressed in black tails.

“Good evening, Mr. Parker. Miss.” He nodded at me. “I have your bottle of champagne set up on the bar. Shall I pour?”

I glanced around the enormous space. There was a bar near the windows with another bottle of Dom already waiting for us. A simple gesture was made, two glasses of champagne were poured and a crystal glass was placed into my hand.

Fancy nights courtesy of a man who was attracted to me and looking for sex was nothing new. I’d received many drinks, trinkets, jewelry and more from the many disposable men who had come and gone in my life. I had incredible assets and knew how to use them to get what I wanted. Or needed.

The butler disappeared. I didn’t even see him leave. We were alone. I placed my empty glass down on the bar. Time to work my magic and see what it would get me.

Hmm, what was Mr. Parker’s fantasy?

Figuring out a man’s desires was my gift. It was a talent I had perfected.

Once again, I found Mr. Parker admiring my long legs. They were toned and perfectly tanned. A winning combination that I learned early on stilettos accentuated even more.

I reached forward and pulled on his blue silk tie, walking backwards, leading him seductively over to a pristine white sofa. I gave a playful push, seating him in front of me. His eyes opened wide in lustful admiration.

I expertly unzipped my dress in one quick motion and let it fall. He groaned and leaned back. I hid a smile at his predictable reaction and stepped free, kicking the garment to the side. If I was wearing a bra or panties, I would have removed them next but… oops look at that, I wasn’t wearing any.

This left me standing tall in nothing except my heels.

My hooker heels.

***Review***

Redemption. A great book always has characters that need to be set free from their past mistakes so they can finally find the happiness that has eluded them. Such is the case with Kenna. Her collective life experiences and subsequent choices have led her to a crossroads. She can continue along her path, bleak and lonely as it is, because it is the safer option…one where she controls the outcomes and reaps the rewards. Or she can take a rather large risk, which **may** beget her the bliss and fulfillment she has been missing.

Trust. Zachary the white knight. God, I loved this guy. When he loves, he loves big and hard. But because of that, he is susceptible to hurt and betrayal and that makes him closed off. When he finally opens himself up to the possibility that unconditional love does actually exist, he pours his soul into his hope for the future.

Feeling (not just watching) these characters grow as individuals and together as a unit, experiencing their happiness and subsequent anguish…it all made the story that much more fulfilling.

In the spirit of baseball season, I’ll be a little cliché and say it…

Another home run for my dear friend Ryan Ringbloom. Congrats, love! <3

Can she forgive his mistakes? Does he want to be forgiven?

Amazon

“Is it really gonna be like this?”
“Like what?”
I sit in my chair, back to him, and start twirling pasta. His arms cage me in from behind and his stubble tickles my cheek. “You acting pissed at me. I told you. I fucking told you that I can’t do more. I told you to make me leave, but you didn’t.”
He runs his nose behind my ear, and I clench the arms of the chair, forcing myself to stay still. I don’t want him to see how affected I am. “But you didn’t. So we fucked, Courtney. And we could do it again. In fact, I jack off thinking about doing it again. You know where I live if you want a repeat.”

Anna has always had a passion for writing, and is thrilled to have published her first novel. Along with several other projects, she is currently working on the next book in the It’s Kind Of Personal series. Born in Wisconsin, she’s lived in several Midwestern states. Anna enjoys reading, writing, and spending time outdoors with her husband and two boys.

Happy Release Day! Black Number Four By Kandi Steiner

There are three things I look for in a romance novel – lots of steam, tons of emotion and a strong, sassy heroine. You’re probably asking why I didn’t mention a delicious hero. That’s the one thing I usually DO find. =)

Black Number Four delivered on ALL, including the delicious hero.

I absolutely loved this book. I’m not typically a fan of YA/NA but this was an exception. I fell in love with Kip – everything about him was yummy beyond words, including the way I pictured him in his specs. And Skyler was fantastic – I don’t usually say that about heroines but she had so many qualities I love – smart, strong, spunky, loyal. Both characters had to overcome their insecurities and make tough decisions that would potentially throw kinks in their respective plans, making for a very captivating story. There were a lot of twists and turns weaved into the plot that helped develop both hero and heroine so I really felt like I knew them and felt their struggles. This was the first book I’ve read by Kandi Steiner and I’m so glad I did. It was FABULOUS.

Fan for life! =)

Title: Black Number Four

Known as one of the youngest and most ambitious poker players in the country, Skyler Thorne has a reputation to uphold in Vegas this year. Her sole focus for spring semester is to perfect her game and get tournament ready – and have some fun with her sorority sisters, of course. Meeting a care-free pledge with incredible arms adds a whole new element of fun to her semester, but when a shocking discovery about his past surfaces, Skyler finds herself stuck in a game she wasn’t prepared to play. 

Kip Jackson is on a mission from his father. His plan was to get in, have a little fun, and then get out – on to bigger and better things. A feisty girl with bright blue eyes wasn’t on his list of things to do, but she quickly moves her way up to the very top. When he realizes completing his dad’s mission means crushing her in the process, he must decide if his dreams are worth the risk – or if he even has the same dreams, at all.

Two secrets. Two hearts. Two hands being played in one twisted game of deceit.

When the cards are on the table, will anyone be left standing?

The perfect poker face can only hide them for so long.

Amazon | Barnes & Noble

“I want to know your secrets.” I walk to the sink and drop the dishes in, waiting.
Skyler leans against the wall and crosses her arms. “Oh yeah? In poker or in life?”
I tuck my hands in my pockets and shrug, my eyes locked on hers. “Both.”
She stays there for a while, smiling and scrutinizing me at the same time. Suddenly, her face falls, and I feel the same resistance from earlier stretch between us like a tense rubber band. “I should probably go,” she says, lifting from the wall.
I check my watch. “Why don’t we go watch the sunrise? It’ll be up in twenty minutes.”
Skyler chews her cheek, her foot tapping on the floor. “I don’t know, I think this would be a lot easier if I left now.”
I shake my head, walking toward her. “What do you mean by this?”
She goes to back up but hits the wall. “This. Us. I just, I don’t think we should get caught up. I have to focus on poker this semester and you’re pledging. It would just be easier if we didn’t complicate things.”
I keep walking until our chests touch and place my hands on the wall around her head, my face inches from hers. Her breath hitches in her throat, but her bright blue eyes don’t leave mine.
“Baby, you made me lick tequila off you the first night we met. This is nothing if not complicated.”
