ABOUT LUX: Beginnings:

Now available together for the first time, don’t miss Obsidian and Onyx, the first two books in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s bestselling Lux series. Also includes bonus content exclusive to the print edition! “A thrilling ride from start to finish,” says RT Book Reviews.

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

 

ABOUT LUX: Consequences:

Now available together for the first time, don’t miss Opal and Origin, the third and fourth books in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s bestselling Lux series. Also includes bonus content exclusive to the print edition! “A thrilling ride from start to finish,” says RT Book Reviews.

No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well… There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different… And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger…and they know it.

synopsis

Adrian Wellington was beyond devastated when his wife, Shay, left him seventeen years ago without warning or explanation. She filed for divorce and left town, right when he needed her most. He’s

since opened his own thriving business and has been going through the motions of day-to-day life, but not really living. He knows there’s just something missing, or rather someone.

Shay Bradshaw ran from the love of her life with a deep, dark, unforgivable secret. She took the cowardly way out and just disappeared. She moved across the country and as far away from the Wellington family as she could get, and the only man she’s ever loved. She made a promise to herself to never be the person she was all those years ago. She took with her the secret that she thought was hers to bear alone.

When Shay is forced to move back home to care for her mother, naturally karma would choose that time for their worlds to collide once again.

Can lightning strike a second time seventeen years later and bring two destined souls back together, or will Shay’s secret destroy their second chance?

The truth, although not what is seems, will set your heart free.

SC Teaser 1
excerpt

It’s a mad grab of clothes and body parts as our kiss heats up. We quickly rid each other of our clothes, then I position her in the center of the bed and rub my throbbing dick on her entrance. She moans and says, “Put it in, now, I need you, please, oh God, please, just put it in.”

The way we’re going at it, it’s not going to take me long at all. I slowly rub her entrance a little more not giving her what she wants. She was a bad girl and deserves to be punished. I push up on my hand and lock my arm, hovering over her face. I look her in the eyes and give that devilish half grin that I know she can’t resist. She bites her lip and gives me her own devilish sexy little grin. She plants her foot on the mattress and bucks her hips. I let her take me on my back, to see where she wants to take this. Her long blond hair cascades down her face as she grabs my cock in her fist. I inhale sharp between my teeth. She positions herself over me and thrusts herself down on me. She’s so ready for me, and the feeling is fucking fantastic. Her hair sways in my face at every inward thrust. She grabs my jaw and digs those perfect little fingernails into my skin, and I about blow my load right then. She looks into my eyes while grinding her hips in a circular motion, in and out. She plants a hot kiss on my lips and thrusts her tongue in my mouth. God, I love this woman.

I pull away and look her in the eyes. “I love you,” I tell her as she continues relentlessly with her hips.

“I love you more,” she replies.

She moves her left leg to the other side of my hip and reverses her position so she’s facing away from me. Reverse cowgirl, fucking hell yes, I love it. I grab her hips and help her move up and down. I can feel her insides clench around my cock as she comes with a muffled scream.

I can’t hold out any longer, I tell her, “I’m coming, Doll.” She quickly gets up, turns around and sinks her pretty pink lips around my dick as I come in her mouth. Oh my God, that was fucking hot. I continue to pump inside her mouth and she takes it all while looking into my eyes. Seeing the whites of her eyes as she swallows it all sends me over the edge again, and I come a second time. Or, it could still be the first time, I don’t fucking care. I grind my teeth and take it as she swirls her tongue around my sensitive tip.

I am an “Indie” contemporary romance author. I live in California with my husband and two teenage boys. I love being a stay at home mom. My husband and I enjoy wine tasting and camping with our kids with our four wheelers in the middle of nowhere, where you can find me with my pink Ryder BB gun!

We have a handful of pets, a dog named Lucy (who is in my books) and a guinea pig named Flufy (my son spelled her name that way) and a cat who adopted us many years ago and has never left. She is a spoiled outdoor cat with her own two story house and a heated bed.

I never liked reading as a kid. I only started reading romance novels in the past few years. My Kindle and I are inseparable now. A thought occurred to me in December of 2012 that maybe I could write a romance novel. So I went to work with the encouragement of my husband and my sister-in-law. It didn’t take long to figure out that I really enjoyed writing.

At Your Beck & Call Cover
synopsis

Hallen Jansen has it all. At 28, he has a flashy car, a great apartment, and a job he’s good at and that he loves – as an escort – working at your beck and call.

His life is easy, with no emotions or attachments slowing him down – choosing to keep moving, always running from the past. But when a new client awakens unfamiliar feelings, all bets are off. Can he convince a recently divorced woman twenty years older to trust men again – to trust him? Can Hallen trust himself not to screw things up?

Surrounded by people who choose to judge them, will they make their relationship a reality, or is it heartbreak for both?

Not all services are professional.

 

 

 

excerpt

“So, what other services do you offer, Hallen?”

How many times had I been asked that question? How many times had I answered it?

She laid her hand on my knee, her gaze sharp, questioning, lustful—and ashamed.

The light was not kind to her, emphasizing hard lines around her mouth, the overly tight skin of her forehead.

She should have chosen a bar with softer lighting. Candlelight hides a multitude of sins. Except my sins are all on the inside.

When I’d arrived at the designated restaurant earlier in the evening, she’d been careful to conceal her age. Maybe she thought I’d care. I didn’t. I gave my name to the hostess and asked her to let Ms. Mandelsohn know that I had arrived.

It was always interesting meeting a new client—a challenge, too—getting to know her, putting her at ease, helping her to feel comfortable, working out what she wanted from a date. She needed to feel safe with me, like I’d take care of her in all senses of the words. And talking is underrated as a method of foreplay. Clients often said they felt like they’d known me for years. Well, they knew the part I showed them, which wasn’t the same thing at all. But it was enough to let me fuck them.

They didn’t always want sex—or they said they didn’t. Once they’d met me, they often changed their minds.

 

review

~~ 4.5 Stars ~~

This is the second book by Jane Harvey-Berrick that I have read and so far this is by far my FAVORITE!!!  This book was so different than I expected.  I kind of expected it to be like all the other escort books I have read, but that is not the case.  This was told kind of like a “day in the life” of….  It’s almost like we were interviewing Hallen and he gave us his story of how he became a male escort.  What a fantastic journey it was 😉  I loved that this book was told almost completely in the male POV (We do get a couple chapters from Laura’s POV).  This book was a thought provoking story!!!  I thought the way Jane wrote and told this story was fantastic.  I will say that I did get a little confused with some of the time jumps in the beginning, but it wasn’t enough to deter me from really enjoying this story.  I will say that I do think this book might be hard for some readers….it will definitely take some out of their comfort zones.  What I loved the most about this story was the feelings behind the story.  In the first half of the book, I thought Jane did a wonderful job expressing the true feelings for someone in the Escort business.  I felt that everything Hallen went through and described was believable.  The second half of the book was such an emotional roller coaster for me….and the last 30% of the book really kind of gutted me.  I couldn’t stop crying!!!  My heart broke for Hallen.  But I did end this story with a HUGE smile on my face.  I loved the Epilogue 🙂

Hallen is the main character of this story, but about half way in we meet Laura.  Laura hires Hallen to escort her to an Art Gallery showing.  This is how they meet for the first time.  After that meeting something snapped in Hallen and he realized being an escort wasn’t the life he wanted anymore.  After he meets Laura and they start dating, this is were the story shows a different side of Hallen.  I loved him so much.  He totally made my heart melt.  The second half of the book really focused on what Hallen and Laura had to overcome to be with each other.  This is the part of the book were most of the drama occurred, but it was mostly brought on by Laura.  She had some serious trust issues…not that I blamed her, but I was getting frustrated with the fact that she kept throwing Hallen’s past in his face.  My heart broke for him so many times during this time 🙁  I was glad to see that by the end of the story Laura grew into a stronger more confident person and was willing to fight for what she wanted.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the escort type story.  But let me warn you…if you go into this thinking that it is going to be like the book Damaged Goods….then you will be sorely mistaken.  This book was so much more then just a great love story.  This isn’t a happy go lucky story of an escort falling in love with a client and living HEA…it is so much more then that…it shows the gritty, hard and realistic side of what it is like to be an escort and to be the person who falls in love with that escort.  If you are a fan of Jane’s books then you for sure don’t want to miss this book !!!!  This is definitely a standalone and completed story!!!!

I started writing contemporary romance two years ago. Before that, I didn’t think I could write a sex scene. Turns out I can!

My lucky number is 13 because I was born on the 13th and live near a haunted castle by the ocean. My number one past-time is watching hot surfers get changed into (and out of) their wetsuits.

My husband doesn’t read my books. My mother does.

Writing is my love, my hobby, my total addiction. All my characters are important to me and whisper their stories, even when I’ve finished writing their books. That’s why you’ll often find bonus chapters/out-takes from various books, because those voices just won’t be quiet.

review

3.5 stars

Let Go is Greylan’s story. And Greylan has some BAD damn luck!! In short, Greylan is a MMA fighter on the way to the top when he does something that changes his life forever. But, the sad part about it is, he is a great guy who doesn’t deserve the life he has been dealt. Then he is trying to get his life back and everything threatens to fall apart again.

“Fighting is something he needs, almost as much as he needs to breathe.” 

The story starts off with a bang…a sad bang, but a bang. But then things slow down for a while, as he is trying to get his life back on track. I did, at times, feel that that part of the story needed a little more but I still kept chugging along in hopes that things would pick up. And, it did. I felt like most of the meat of the story happens in the last 50%. A lot changes and we find out so more about everyone’s past and intentions.

“You are my big brother who always puts everyone else first. Live your life Grey, the way you’re supposed to.”

I wish I could tell you that this is a sweet love story where some lucky girl becomes the love of Greylan’s life and they live happily ever after, BUT, nope…it doesn’t happen. More bad comes Greylan’s way and then we are left with so many questions!! Yep, cliffy here!

There are many characters in this story, but, truthfully, I just couldn’t connect with them. Greylan, I sorta felt for a little because he was an amazingly unselfish and caring guy, but the rest of them…didn’t really care too much for. Greylan has this “best friend” named Meyer…yeah, I wanted to nut punch him!!! HARD!!! He was nothing but a dirtbag and I will leave it at that 😉

So, as you can see, my feelings about this story are all over the place. I liked it enough to not give up but I certainly didn’t feel as connected to the characters as I would have liked. Check it out, peeps, and see what you think 🙂

synopsis

Both have what she wants … but only one has what she needs. Working with professional athletes and helping them recover from their injuries has always been Kate Townsend’s dream, but after an accident left her scarred and heartbroken years ago she refuses to
let what happened in her past happen again. Staying focused is the key, as well as not letting her feelings interfere with her job … no matter the circumstances. All of that is easier said than done when not only one, but two men crave her healing touch, igniting every single desire she’s denied herself for so long.
 
Cooper Davis, NFL’s star quarterback and most eligible bachelor, packs up and leaves his home to move across the states to the East Coast after an injury results in the embarrassing trade to another team. Bitter from the pain, he deals with his problems through drugs
and alcohol—almost ruining his football career—until he meets the one woman who makes him want to feel; the same woman who refuses to give up on him no matter how many times he screws up. He has to have her, and he’s not going to stop until he makes her his. Especially
now that someone else threatens to take her away.

 

Motocross champion and local bad boy Luke Collins never takes no for an answer. For the past four months he’s used his charms to get what he wants, and now he’s so close to getting the girl of his dreams … if she’ll give in just once. One time is all he needs, and he’s never been known to fail, but he’s also never had to fight for a woman’s affections. Only one man will win their way into Kate’s heart, but which one will intercept the other and take what they want? Which one will she choose?




excerpt
We pulled into the parking lot of the practice field and I shut off my car, the tension in the air crackling like fire. When I turned to look at her, it was like her stormy gray gaze could see right through me. There were a shit ton of things I wanted, but nothing as much as leaning forward to kiss those lips of hers.

With her breaths coming fast and low, she licked her dry lips and shook her head.
“Cooper, we can’t.”

Bending over the center console, I glanced down at her lips and murmured low, “Yes we
can, Kate, and I’m going to make sure we do.”

“Seriously, Eloise? A high school dance. Balloon arches and spiked punch?”

She laughed, although there was an edge to her voice.

“I would have thought it would make a nice change from older women, Hallen, and for once you can a knock a couple of years off your age.”

I frowned.

“Besides, the money is the same so what difference does it make?” Eloise said, brusquely. “Look, have you got any idea how brutal high school is for plain girls?”

Sometimes she made it sound like working as an escort was a mission, not … well, what it was.

“Melissa’s mother says she is very shy and a little overweight. She doesn’t want all her daughter’s memories of high school to be ghastly. And, frankly, there are very few reputable escort services offering anything to girls of her age. You’re only three years older and when you shave you’ll look younger. Look on it as an act of charity.”

“Oh, I’m sure Melissa would love to hear that,” I snarkedback.

“I told you to look her age, not act it,” Eloise replied, sharply. “Sweep her off her feet, but don’t sleep with her. Understand?”

“Yes, boss.

Confession time, readers! Occasionally, I love the villain. There, I said it. It doesn’t take much for me to turn into an antagonist slut. Don’t shake your head at me. Take Loki from Thor; I only watch those dang movies for freaking Tom Hiddleston, not Chris Hemsworth.

Batting eyelashes. “What’s that, Loki, you want to take over the world?” Giggle and smirk while raising extremely large magical scepter. “Well, if you insist.” End scene. Am I wrong for that … should I seek help? Well, what if it was a villainess? Yep, I get crushes on the right type of chicky villain as well.

No, no … don’t cover your eyes, this is going to be fun. Let’s start with Disney villainess.

tangledMother Gothel, Tangled. This baddy amused me. No way did I believe in my wizened old age of thirty-something to be so tickled by a villain. Gothel is sarcastic in all the right places, and her gypsy good looks add to her mystery. My only bone of contention with this evil trick is that there are no minions. What the hell? For her to be that bad for that long and not acquire one minion is just unacceptable.

Cruella De Vil, 101 Dalmations. What type of demon wants to kill pretty101 dalm puppies? A crazy haired fiend, that’s who. Oh! But what about that awesome laugh. This woman is a lock her up and throw away the key type of villain, rather than the break in a bank and steal something (I’m talking about you, Bonnie). In no way did I root for her, however I did like the way she looked. Why? I can’t rightly say since she was just plain mean. Although, when I think about it she kinda reminds me of Anna Wintour, a baddy who is also in the stylish club.

ursulaUrsula, The Little Mermaid. She was a weird mermaid ogre psycho hybrid. The lengths of her trickery held no bounds. If you want Eric to fall in love with you, jump on this foot. If you ever want to see him again, hop over here. Quite frankly, I’m surprised Ariel held it together as well as she did. If I ever need a contract drawn up, I’m headed for the sea. Ursula will give that Alicia Florrick a run for The Good Wife money.

Maleficent, Sleeping Beauty. She is my absolute fav. From the moment I set eyes on her, it wassleeping beauty love at first sight. She wore her heart on her sleeve. Like a child who’s mother doesn’t want to admit they’re little Johnny is bad as hell, my girl Mal is merely misunderstood. After all, she didn’t get an invite to baby Aurora’s party. That’s tantamount to being the only kid in class without a valentine.  How would you feel … sad, envious, or out for blood? Did you pick door number three? Well, of course you did! Who doesn’t want the power to turn into a bad ass dragon?

Let’s recap: Princesses, everyone loves them. However, what they have in looks my bad girls make up in spades with dimension; smart, mean, cold, or vicious. At one point, every one of you fantasized about being them. What? Just me? Phtttfhh, I find that hard to believe.

review

“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.”

WARNING!!! If you do not like love triangles, this is not the book for you! But feel free to try it anyway…that’s just my personal opinion. One of the reviewers of Book Bitches does not like love triangles and thank goodness she is not the one who read this story. Now, I on the other hand, want to read ALL the love triangles J I love the tension, the hot sex, and all the crazy emotions that come with them.

“Neither of us had healed—we didn’t know how to. It was almost as it time had stopped since we had been apart. We weren’t really living just existing and definitely not feeling.”

Greyson Rose and Stefan’s story is one that will wear you out!!! In the beginning I was worn out from the heartbreak. Anyone who has children will feel every damn emotion that these two go through. You will feel like your heart is being ripped right out, with them L I knew it was coming and yet I still couldn’t prepare myself for reading parts of this story.

“My heart never said goodbye to Stefan, and even now I knew it didn’t want to.”

And, then after you put the tiny pieces together from what happens, the frustration takes over!! Why oh why did the author have to torture me for so long?!? I felt like Greyson Rose…I kept thinking I was choosing the right one and then something else would change my mind!! This went on for so much of the story, too. I must admit, after a while I was thinking, get to it already!! I was screaming, CHOOSE A DAMN MAN, WOMAN!!!

And She FINALLY did!! Which then made this Book Bitch quite happy J I thoroughly enjoyed this story even if I wanted to pull my freakin’ hair out at times. And if you are a lover of love triangles, this one will make you giddy!

excerpt

His lips twitched up to the side; his hands slid across the table and lifted mine, lacing his fingers between mine. This touch, the feeling, it was something I never thought I’d feel again. Nothing about the way it affected me had changed. I felt the world around me slip away; my eyes slid shut as the air in my lungs escaped me. A gentle squeeze against my hands made me focus again on the man in front of me. I hardly registered a few tears building behind my eyes until they fell down my cheeks.

Stefan’s ever-changing, ever-incredible blue eyes held mine as if he refused to let go.

“From the second you ran into me I had no choice but to go back for you.” I focused my eyes on the wall directly next to his beautiful face. There was no way I could watch him and keep hold of my self-control.

“Look at me, Greyson Rose.” I did. I couldn’t resist him no matter how much I knew I should.

“I will always come back for you.”

Those words. They were ones I needed to hear many years ago, but they never came. In the moment, when I needed my husband, my best friend, he wasn’t there. He didn’t come back for me—he left me alone, and that’s why we were here in this very place. I pulled my hands from his and placed them over my eyes as the waterworks began. My chest heaved and my body shook with the onslaught of memories and of moments that once were.

I felt the booth seat shift as he sat down next to me, and before I could react his arms were around me. I nearly stopped breathing at the wave of emotions that shook me to the bottom of my heart. I’ve had his hands on me, his arm around me, but nothing compared to the feeling of being surrounded by the only man who made me feel whole. The strength he held me with was one I could never forget. There was no warning in my head anymore—there was only Stefan. My arms wrapped around his shoulders, my face buried into his neck.

Breathing him in, touching him, holding him. I wasn’t over it. For the first time in six years I felt like I was alive. My lungs filled with the fresh sweet scent of the man that would always have my heart.

It didn’t matter that we were in a crowded restaurant. All that truly mattered was that he was here and I was here. I knew it was going to kill me when it was time to let go, but for now I was going to hold on as if my life depended on it. Stefan’s hand pressed against the back of my head.

“Trust me, Greyson Rose. I’m not going anywhere this time.”

I am Megan Noelle! I have been writing for many years and currently have two books out that are part of a series. My For You series were the first novels I published but I had to stop everything to write Stefan and Grey’s story in, A Broken Forever. I have been writing since I was old enough to hold a pen and finally pursued my dream of becoming a novelist. Writing is my passion and I am all for following one’s passions! One of my other passions is being a mom of my adorable daughter Peyton. When I’m not writing I’m a stay at home mom and a full time student. I’m getting close to finishing my 2-year degree and I am more than ready for a break. There are many things I want to do in life, but if I can write, be with my daughter and my family—I will be happy!

5 *NEW* Random Things You Don’t Know About Me!

  1. I have recently retired my love for Diet Coke and focused solely on Diet Pepsi. And yes, I know all about aspartame, and all that bad stuff. But, it’s delicious.
  2. I would someday love to write a book that Tim Burton wants to make into a movie!
  3. I have an unfailing love for many movies I watched growing up (not just Disney) and it is very difficult for me to like anything new. Some of my favorites set the bar too high apparently! (When Harry Met Sally, My Best Friend’s Wedding, Father of the Bride Part I & II, & many more!)
  1. I have a horrible wonderful addiction to book covers!
  2. I have more story ideas in my head than I will ever be able to write.
