Title: Better When He’s Bad (Welcome to the Point #1)

Author: Jay Crownover

Publication Date: June 17, 2014

Publisher: William Morrow an imprint of HarperCollins Publishing

Event Organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.

Welcome to the Point

There’s a difference between a bad boy and a boy who’s bad . . . meet Shane Baxter.

Sexy, dark, and dangerous, Bax isn’t just from the wrong side of the tracks, he is the wrong side of the tracks. A criminal, a thug, and a brawler, he’s the master of bad choices, until one such choice landed him in prison for five years. Now Bax is out and looking for answers, and he doesn’t care what he has to do or who he has to hurt to get them. But there’s a new player in the game, and she’s much too innocent, much too soft…and standing directly in his way.

Dovie Pryce knows all about living a hard life and the tough choices that come with it. She’s always tried to be good, tried to help others, and tried not to let the darkness pull her down. But the streets are fighting back, things have gone from bad to worse, and the only person who can help her is the scariest, sexiest, most complicated ex-con The Point has ever produced.

Bax terrifies her, but it doesn’t take Dovie long to realize that some boys are just better when they’re bad.

That being said, we’ve got an AWESOME cover to go along with this sure-to-be-awesome book from the ever-so-talented Jay Crownover. So without further ado, lets move on to what I am sure you have all been waiting for…

Jay Crownover

I’m supposed to share interesting details about myself so that my readers get to know me so here we go in no particular order: I’m an natural redhead even though I haven’t seen my real hair color in years, I’m a big fan of tattoos and have a half sleeve on either arm and various other pieces all over the place, I’ve been in the bar industry since I was in college and it has always offered interesting insight into how men and women interact with each other, I have 3 dogs that are all crazy, I live in Colorado and love the snow, I love music and in all reality wish I could be a rock star not a writer or a bartender but I have zero talent so there is that.

I love to write, love to read and all I’m interested in is a good story with interesting characters that make the reader feel something.

Cover Reveal + Sneak Peek + Giveaway: Deep Surrendering by Chelsea M. Cameron

Title: Deep Surrendering (Episode 1)

Author: Chelsea M. Cameron

Release Date: March 20th

She’s all about rules. He lives by none but his own. When these two meet, the results could be disastrous.

When Marisol Everly’s friend Rory sets her up with Fin Herald, Marisol doesn’t expect that it will amount to anything, but that was before she saw Fin’s searing blue eyes and mischievous smile. Not to mention, he seems absolutely fascinated by her mundane life. He’s everything that a girl could want, but there’s something else that ripples under the surface of his flirty behavior. Something darker. Something that fascinates Marisol, but scares her at the same time. Is she willing to risk falling into an abyss she might not get out of?

Today is a super special day because not only is it a cover reveal but it is also a new project reveal for Chelsea M. Cameron! Her super secret project has been kept on the down low for some time now so I am super excited to be able to share it with you today!

Each month Chelsea will be releasing a series of contemporary adult novellas set in the world of her Surrender series! How awesome is that!?!? And do you know what makes it even more awesome? You will be seeing a new one every month! If you are a fan of her Surrender series or even if you are new to her books, this is an awesome opportunity to delve deeper into the world that she’s created!

Now that I’ve got part one of the exciting news out of the way, let’s get on to part two, the cover!

Deep Surrendering

So what do you think? I LOVE that it is unique in its own way but at the same time it just goes with the other covers from the Surrender series. I’m just OCD like that.

And because Chelsea wanted to make this series reveal even more awesome, she has put together a very teasing teaser for you today as well as a giveaway (which you can find at the bottom of this post!). Enjoy!


“So what are you going to do about it?” He pulled me closer as we barreled through the streets.

“I’m going to pay attention to the things that matter. Like this.” His hand went under my chin and pulled my face up. “I’m going to pay attention to you, and the way the sun catches the darker streaks in your hair, the pink in your cheeks and your beautiful eyes. That’s what I’m going to pay attention to right here, right now.”

I nearly melted off my seat.

“But you don’t even know me,” I said. This was too much, too fast. Even though I’d been hearing about him from Rory, I still didn’t really know what mattered. The important things. Life was all about the little details.

Like if he was a morning person, what his favorite breakfast cereal was, what song did he always get stuck in his head, how was his relationship with his mother.

He shrugged one shoulder and pulled my face closer.

“I know that right now I’m paying very close attention to your lips and I’d like to pay even closer attention to them…” I turned my head at the last moment, so he missed and got my cheek.

“I’m sorry,” I said, hoping he wouldn’t hate me. “I have a no kiss on the first date rule.” It sounded even worse out loud. I sounded like some sort of stick-up-her-ass prude.

“No kiss on the first date?” Fin said, turning his head to the side as if he was fascinated by me.

“Is that a problem?” God, I hoped not.

He grinned at me and flicked my hair over my shoulder.

“Not at all.”

Cover Reveal: All Lined Up by Cora Carmack

Title: All Lined Up (Rusk University #1)

Author: Cora Carmack

Publisher: William Morrow an imprint of HarperCollins

Expected Publication: May 13, 2014

In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both.

Dallas Cole loathes football. That’s what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.

But life doesn’t always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again.

Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It’s obliterated.

Dallas doesn’t know Carson is on the team. Carson doesn’t know that Dallas is his new coach’s daughter.

And neither of them knows how to walk away from the attraction they feel.

“Laughter + heartache + hot sexual tension = the perfect Cora Carmack book.”

—Monica Murphy

I am so, so, so excited to be a part of Cora Carmack’s cover reveal for her upcoming New Adult Romance, All Lined Up. Why you may ask? Well the answer here is simple: It’s football mixed with complications mixed with romance. It’s Texas in all it’s glory. It’s a series I am so getting on board with. But most of all it’s Cora Carmack and I sort of love her writing guts. The cover is gorgeous people and I know you are just as excited as me to see it. So without further ado…

All Lined Up

Really dang gorgeous isn’t it? I love the pretty people, I love that they’re on a football field, and I love the typography because it’s all football & school-sy (<<<totally makes sense in my head). So tell me, what do you think? I would absolutely love to hear your thoughts on it in the comments section!

Title: Before You

Author: Jenna Bennett

Before You

It’s all fun and games

I had a simple plan for spring break.

Sun, sand, and a hot guy. Sex on the beach, with no strings attached.

A chance to get rid of this pesky virginity once and for all.

And when I met Tyler McKenna, I thought I had it made.

Until someone gets hurt

But then girls started turning up at Key West landmarks. Girls who looked like me, but with one crucial difference: They’d all been drugged and relieved of their virginity.

The virginity I still have. The virginity Ty refuses to take.

And now I’ve begun to wonder whether there isn’t more to him than meets the eye.

Suddenly, sex on the beach doesn’t sound so good anymore…

Before You Teaser


Title: Between Us

Author: Jen McLaughlin

Between Us

I’m just a girl…

I’m a famous country star who’s spent her life cultivating a good girl persona to avoid bad press, but I’ve reached my limit. I’m going away for spring break with my two best friends from college, and we’ve vowed to spend the vacation seeking out fun in the sun—along with some hot, no-strings-attached sex. The only thing I needed was the perfect guy, and then I met Austin Murphy. He might be totally wrong for me, but the tattooed bad boy is hard to resist. When I’m in his arms, everything just feels right.

And I’m just a guy…

I’m just a bartender who lives in Key West, stuck in an endless cycle of boredom. But then Mackenzie Forbes, America’s Sweetheart herself, comes up to me and looks at me with those bright green eyes…and everything changes. She acts like she’s just a normal girl and I’m just a normal guy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. My past isn’t pretty, you know. I did what I had to do to survive, and she’d run if she learned the truth about my darkness. But with her, I’m finally realizing what it’s like to be alive. To laugh, live, and be happy.

All good things must come to an end…

Between Us Teaser


Title: Beyond Me

Author: Jennifer Probst

Beyond Me


Spring break in Key West with my besties was supposed to be casual fun. But I never expected to meet James Hunt. Sex and frolic? Yes! A relationship? No. But his hot blue eyes and confident manner drew me in. And when he let me see the man behind the mask, I fell hard, foolishly believing there could be a future for us. Of course I never considered our relationship might be based on lies…or that his betrayal could rock my foundation and make me question everything I believed in…   


The moment I saw Quinn I knew I had to have her. She hooked me with her cool eyes and don’t touch me attitude. I had it all, money, social status, and looks. I could get any girl I wanted…until her. When my friends challenged me with a bet to get her into bed by the end of the week, I couldn’t pass it up. But sex wasn’t supposed to turn into love. She wasn’t supposed to change me, push me, and make me want more for myself. She wasn’t supposed to wreck me in all ways. And now, if I can’t turn my lies into truth, I just might lose her forever…

Cover Reveal: Losing Logan by Sherry D. Ficklin

Title: Losing Logan

Author: Sherry D. Ficklin

Expect Publication: May 2014

What if the one thing you never meant to hold on to, is the one thing you can’t let go of?

Normally finding a hot guy in her bedroom wouldn’t irritate Zoe so badly, but finding her childhood friend Logan there is a big problem. Mostly because he’s dead.

As the only person he can make contact with, he talks Zoe into helping him put together the pieces surrounding his mysterious death so he can move on.

Thrust into his world of ultra popular rich kids, Zoe is out of her element and caught in the cross-hairs of Logan’s suspicious ex-girlfriend and the friends he left behind, each of whom had a reason to want him dead. The deeper they dig to find the truth, the closer Zoe gets to a killer who would do anything to protect his secrets. And that’s just the start of her problems because Zoe is falling for a dead guy.

I am so excited for today’s cover reveal mostly because I am really freaking excited for this book! It sounds absolutely amazing not to mention I sort of have a thing for ghosts. Now that I’ve got an awesome cover to go along with an awesome sounding book, the only thing I need now is for May to get here! Without further ado, let’s take a look at Losing Logan’s cover!

She doesn’t remember being engaged. She doesn’t remember Colin at all.

When Addison meets Pierce, the one person who doesn’t have an ulterior motive, the one person she can talk to openly, Colin thinks his life may be over.

Will Addison’s memory return in time for her to save her relationship with Colin? Or is it gone forever, leaving her free to love Pierce?

Today I’ve got an awesome cover reveal (more like a cover update considering this book has already been released) and it is also the kick-off for the blog tour for The One Left Behind. I will be on the tour on Jan. 21st so be sure to stop by the blog on that date for my review.

Now that that’s out of the way, we can move on to the cover awesomeness that’s about to be thrown your way. This story always sounded great to me but the old cover didn’t really catch my eye.
