REVIEW TOUR - Goated by the Gods by Sheri Lyn

Goated by the Gods





Their family cursed by the god Thor long ago, the Maddux brothers are forced to walk the earth as both goats and men. Maddening at first, the family has since learned to use their curse to their advantage and wouldn’t trade it for anything, except for maybe love. Finding someone to accept them - both sides - is proving difficult.


Thor feels guilty that time has slipped away from him in the mortal realm, he never meant for the curse to last as long as it has. In an attempt to make up for it, Thor takes it upon himself to help the brothers find their soulmates, with the help of the trickster god himself, Loki.


A matchmaking service run by Thor and Loki? This should be fun, but when the gods are involved, nothing is ever easy.


4 out of 5 (very good)


This is a quick and quirky M/M romance with Thor and Loki acting as matchmakers! Incredibly funny, introducing three brothers who can shift into goats. They all have their own personalities and I personally can't wait to read more about them. The eldest brother, Zeke, is matched to a half-god, half-troll called Gareth. With their own issues to contend with, not least being that Zeke is mistrustful of anything to do with the gods, will these get together before their time runs out.

Very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that I could see, this is a thoroughly enjoyable read, guaranteed to make you smile. Quick enough for a coffee break book, but still with plenty of detail. Absolutely recommended.
* I received this book from Wickedly Innocent Promotions in return for a fair and honest review. *

BLURB BLTIZ & #GIVEAWAY - A SEAL's Vow (The SEALs of Chance Creek #2) by Cora Seton

GENRE:  

Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
               

BLURB:

After fifteen long, dangerous years in the service, Navy SEAL Clay Pickett is ready for his new mission: build a model sustainable community and show the world an exciting alternative to a consumption-based life. If that means he’s got a deadline to find a wife in order to win the reality TV show that’s filming his sustainable adventure, so be it. He’s got just the woman for the job in mind: beautiful, dedicated Nora Ridgeway.

When Nora left her job as a school teacher in Baltimore to live a simpler, Jane Austen style life in Montana with her friends, she was relieved to escape the escalating threats of violence from an unknown student stalker, but she can’t help feeling she’s abandoned the other high schoolers who put their faith in her. She’s torn about Clay’s advances, too. On the one hand she’s never met anyone like the strong, sexy SEAL. On the other hand, life’s taught her to take relationships slow—and Clay’s on a deadline.

When arson strikes and Nora disappears, Clay knows he’ll need every trick he learned in his time with the SEALs to track her down and save her life.

Can two people caught by their pasts have a chance at a future?


When Clay looked at her like that she thought she could handle anything, but Nora figured it wouldn’t do to let him know the effect he had on her. She was glad that with the big crowd gathering around the empty firepit, the cameras had too much to focus on to be filming them. “We’ve got a lot of work to do before we can think about that,” she warned him.

“Yes, ma’am.”

She bit back a smile. “Why do I get the feeling you were a handful back in school?”

“What makes you think I’m not a handful now?”

Her gaze dropped below his belt buckle. “Several handfuls, from what I’ve seen.” Nora swallowed. Maybe Clay hadn’t heard that.

“Did you seriously just say that out loud?” Clay asked her.

“I think I did.” Nora giggled, tried to cover it up and snorted instead. A laugh escaped her tightly compressed lips. She never said things like that. And she never snorted. Another unladylike sound slipped out.

“Handfuls?” he repeated. He set his plate down. “Handfuls.”

“Several.” Nora giggled again.

“Were you drinking the cooking sherry again?”

“I think Kai slipped me something.” He must have, because suddenly, perched on a log next to Clay, eating solar-cooked stew, she felt—relaxed.

Clay leaned in and kissed her neck. “We can measure those handfuls later if you like.”

“No sex. You’re not supposed to distract me from my work, remember,” she whispered back, his lips sending shivers down her spine.

“I never agreed to any of that.” he agreed. “We can at least cop a lot of feels while you’re writing, right?”

Nora laughed out loud and several heads turned their way. Clay kissed her neck again. “Can we go to your tent right now?” he whispered in her ear.

“No.”

“Babe.” He sat on the seat beside her, threw his arm over her shoulder, ignoring the cop who was no doubt salivating at the thought of getting his hands on Holt. “Gettin’ damn tired of you running away every time we have an argument.”
She froze for only half a second, and then she pressed her lips together and glared. “Me run? You’re the one who pushed me away.”
“Needed some space, babe. A man needs a little peace and quiet after a day on the road, especially after you crashed the vehicle.”
He hoped she got the message and could let him know what her plan had been if it was something she’d shared with the highly attentive prick seated beside her.
“I wouldn’t have crashed if you’d kept your hands out of my damn pants.”
Holt fought back a smile at her quick thinking. If they weren’t in so much danger, the banter would almost be fun. “You said you had an itch, and I wanted to be there for you.”
Naiya’s nostrils flared, and her face reddened. “You chose a bad time to scratch it.”
“You coulda said no.”
Her face turned three shades of red. “Maybe if I wasn’t so desperate I would have.” She narrowed her eyes and glared at the cop. “Seriously. Look at me. Do I look like the kind of woman who could survive only getting some once a week? That’s what he means when he says he’s there for me. Once a week. And even then it doesn’t always happen because he’s tired after work, or there’s a game on television, or he can’t get it up because of his problem.”
Holt sucked in a breath. Did she think he was going to get away with calling his masculinity into question? Even if it was a damn ruse, a man could only take so much.
“Maybe you should put a bit of effort in, babe. I mean that ratty old sweatshirt and ponytail don’t scream, ‘I want my man to do me bad’. How about you make an effort? Put on some lingerie, do your nails, brush your hair, maybe some makeup, shave your legs, and how about you trim the bush so a man can see where he’s going?”
Naiya spluttered and clutched her glass so hard her knuckles turned white. “I’m supposed to dress up for you when you get home? As if I haven’t put in a long day at work, too? You want your meal all cooked and served to you? A couple of cold ones waiting by your chair? A foot stool all ready so I can massage your feet while I suck you off all dressed up like the fifty dollar hookers you think I don’t know you go see?”
Ouch. Now that hit too close to home. He felt a stab of guilt, although he hadn’t done anything wrong. Holt shared a glance with the now totally engrossed cop and winked. The cop laughed. There were some things that bonded all men, regardless of which side of the law they were on.
“Every man’s dream, babe. And it’s sixty dollars for a blow in Missoula. You charge fifty and you’re underselling yourself. You give decent head. Not sixty dollars worth, but twenty for sure, maybe twenty-five.”
The cop spluttered his water, grabbed a napkin, and dabbed his lips.
“Pig,” she spat out, her tone and face so convincing he almost wondered if she was acting or incensed by what wasn’t really a joke. The image of her dressed in a skin-tight dress, kneeling at his feet with his cock in her mouth while he sipped a cold beer and watched the game held serious appeal.
“I’m going to get on that bus to Idaho Springs and bury my grandmother alone.”
Ah. Now he knew the plan. Damn she was smart. He just hoped he could keep up with her and throw the cop off the scent. If not, someone would wind up dead . . .

RELEASE BLITZ & #GIVEAWAY - Cowboy Player by Mia Hopkins

This cowboy and cowgirl sell the steak and the sizzle….


Visit the ranch in COWBOY PLAYER, the third book in the Cowboy Cocktail series by Mia Hopkins...

About COWBOY PLAYER 

For eight years, Melody Santos played the game of love and lost—big time. Now she’s back in her tiny hometown looking after her younger sister, making ends meet with an assortment of odd jobs. When her childhood best friend hires her to help him sell his family’s grass-fed beef, the last thing she anticipates is falling in lust with the legendary, brown-eyed player.

To put his family’s cattle ranch back in the black, Clark MacKinnon has his sights set on big contracts—gourmet chefs and restaurateurs. If that means long hours traveling from farmer’s market to farmer’s market, Clark doesn’t mind. Particularly since his new assistant is his childhood crush, all grown up and sexy as hell. 

One night in bed leaves them breathless and hungry for more. But when his love-’em-and-leave-’em reputation collides with her trust issues, Clark and Melody must face the truth about what they’ve become: not friends, not lovers, but players in a game that’s impossible to win.

Warning: Contains filthy banter, raunchy sex, excessive Johnny Cash references, and hundreds of pounds of raw beef.

Excerpt:
“I know you don’t do relationships,” Melody said softly.
“I would try it. For you.”
“You don’t want to get tangled up with me,” she said, shaking her head. “I have serious trust issues. I’m poison.”
“Jesus, stop it.”
Fear, real and cold, cut through the warmth swirling in her chest. She’d never asked a man to sleep with her before. “I don’t want to lose you as a friend,” she said slowly. “But tonight, I can’t help wanting…” She trailed off, unable to find the words.
They were quiet for a long time.
When he finally spoke, Clark’s voice was deep and steady. “I think I know what you want, because I want it too.” He stroked her hair and kissed her temple, the exact same place he’d kissed when he first invited her down this rabbit hole. “One last night together. Right?”
She gasped softly, relishing the sensation of his lips on her bare skin. Pleasure spiked in her brain like a drug.
“One last night together,” she repeated. “Then we leave this part of us behind. It stays here and we move on. What do you think?”
He was quiet for a moment. He stroked her lower back, edging lower and lower with each languid sweep. “If this is going to be the last time I’m going to make love to you,” he whispered against her neck, “I’m going to give you everything I’ve got. Are you ready for that?”
The sultry promise in his voice sharpened her senses. She was more than ready.
“Yes,” she whispered.

Forget chocolate and flowers. This homegrown honey is all the sweetness he craves.

Small-town life is nothing but a waiting room for eighteen-year-old honor student Corazón Gomez. Work and school leave little time for love, but with a full-ride Ivy League scholarship and a one-way ticket out of the boondocks, who needs it?

The answer appears on Valentine’s Day when her old cowboy crush ambles into the ice cream parlor where she works, inviting her to go on a late-night ride in his truck. For the first time she wavers between staying on the straight and narrow, and going off-road with the handsome heartbreaker.

After four years working on ranches all over the country, Caleb MacKinnon is back on the family farm helping out his mom and brothers while his father fights cancer. The one bright spot: smart, funny, and wickedly sexy Cora.

From the start, they both know this blazing-hot love affair can’t last. But when autumn comes and Cora has to leave for the East Coast, Caleb must find a solution to keep himself—and his heart—from falling apart.

Warning: Contains hard, cherry-poppin’ sex in a pickup truck and a cowboy charmer who talks dirty in two languages.

Book 1 Available at: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Google Books | Kobo | BAM

Ball-busting business woman meets no-holds-barred cowboy. He’s gonna need a longer rope…

Marketing hotshot Monica Kaur has put her big-city life on hold to help bail out her brother’s failing business. Now she’s got three months to plan and promote a rodeo, the first her tiny hometown has ever seen.

To ensure the rodeo’s success, Monica enlists a local hero, a rancher’s son who’s made a name for himself on the bull-riding circuit. Problem? She can’t stop daydreaming about the cocky bastard—and all the things she longs to do to him out behind the chutes.

Professional bullfighter Dean MacKinnon is home helping his family while his father fights cancer. Haunted by bad memories, jaded by love, Dean finds escape in a no-strings-attached go-round with brainy, sexy Monica, whose close-knit Sikh-American family would sooner run him out of town than see her with a notorious rodeo Romeo.

In private, Monica and Dean play as hard as they work. But as the rodeo draws near, that clean break they promised each other is getting more and more hung up in the rigging.
