Beautiful PRICK

By Sophia Kenzie





Synopsis


I’m a production assistant for a major movie studio, and I happen to be damn good at my job. So how the hell did I end up as his personal assistant? 

Johnny Braylock—even his name makes him sound like a total prick. 

He thinks his chiseled abs, massively broad shoulders, rock-hard biceps, and movie star smile can get him whatever he wants…and rumor has it, the tool he’s packing in his pants gets him any girl he wants. 

I used to have the biggest crush on him. It was an embarrassing crush. It was one of those crushes where I had a giant poster of him in my bedroom, and I used to tell my mother that one day I would marry him… 

That’s before I actually met the 6’1’’ two-hundred pound Welsh God face to face. That’s before he opened his mouth and the true inglorious, chauvinistic asshole he is was revealed to me. Apparently, because he’s an ex-marine, a gorgeous movie star, and an MMA fighter means I’m supposed to worship the ground he walks on. 

Despite being my teenage movie star crush, the man drives me absolutely, positively nuts. I hate him. It’s quite possible that I hate him more than I’ve hated anyone in my entire life. I hate him twenty-three hours of the day. 

It’s that freaking twenty-fourth hour that gets me every time. Why the hell is he so beautiful? Why is his accent so sexy? Why do his insults simultaneously sting and make my body react in unspeakable ways? 

And why the hell do I keep coming back…and back…and back for more? 


Beautiful Prick is a full-length contemporary new adult romance novel. It’s intended for mature readers, contains harsh language and adult content, no cliff hanger.

Lauren ( The Keegan Chronicles Spin-Off Series ) 

By Julia Crane






Book Beginnings On Friday:

"Could  this day get any worse"?

"Lauren glanced down at her favourite white blouse-soaked with orange juice. The little pearl buttons dripped with liquid. At least the way the glass had tipped kept her short, floral skirt dry, even if it had left a puddle on the floor". 
 ( Chapter 1 )





The Friday 56

"There wasn't a trace of jealousy in the statement. "Yeah that's Keegan," Lauren responded carefully, searching Audrey's face for a reaction that wasn't forthcoming. "The other girl is Anna. We've all been friends since we were little". ( Pg 56 )

Being a Madame is no easy job...

I guard privacy and secrets with my own life, and I've never slipped up or got caught, not once.

I don’t do long-term relationships, there’s too much at stake, but there's something about the man I just met, something that makes me uneasy. I try to push him away, but he won’t take no for an answer...

I'm just not sure if the red flags I'm currently seeing are real or just another Illusion...

When tragedy strikes, Seth Stewart is forced to return home after the death of his beloved father. The unexpected detour forces him to oversee the family’s auto shop and restaurant business, and Seth must kiss the prestigious internship goodbye after his first year at Berkeley Business School. When he collides with his first crush after his arrival, Seth wonders what possibly could have happened to Josefina Anders.
Josefina has hidden many secrets she is too ashamed to share with anyone, especially Seth. When they cross paths again, the urge to relive their past lingers in her mind even though she knows he couldn’t accept her sketchy past. Things get even more complicated when her mother returns, as well as her overly possessive ex, who decides to crash into her fragile existence all over again. 
Will Seth’s connection for Josefina be strong enough to see past her secrets, or will he realize he can’t rekindle an old flame?

Excerpt 
When she pulled away to look at me, our eyes locked and thousands of emotions rocketed through me. I felt so much, almost too much for my heart to handle…for my body to control. My hands glided up her back, and the soft silky blouse lured me to rip it off her. Lacing through her hair with my hands, I gave in to the temptation I could no longer control and kissed her in madness. Josie kissed me back and her tongue swirled in hunger. I got hard when she rocked back and forth on me. I thought I could come just from this action alone. I wanted so much of Josie, but not here…not now.

Here is my WOW  pick for this week:












The Song Of David

By Amy Harmon

Publication Date: June 15, 2015




Synopsis

She said I was like a song. Her favorite song. A song isn’t something you can see. It’s something you feel, something you move to, something that disappears after the last note is played.

I won my first fight when I was eleven years old, and I’ve been throwing punches ever since. Fighting is the purest, truest, most elemental thing there is. Some people describe heaven as a sea of unending white. Where choirs sing and loved ones await. But for me, heaven was something else. It sounded like the bell at the beginning of a round, it tasted like adrenaline, it burned like sweat in my eyes and fire in my belly. It looked like the blur of screaming crowds and an opponent who wanted my blood. 

For me, heaven was the octagon.

Until I met Millie, and heaven became something different. I became something different. I knew I loved her when I watched her stand perfectly still in the middle of a crowded room, people swarming, buzzing, slipping around her, her straight dancer’s posture unyielding, her chin high, her hands loose at her sides. No one seemed to see her at all, except for the few who squeezed past her, tossing exasperated looks at her unsmiling face. When they realized she wasn’t normal, they hurried away. Why was it that no one saw her, yet she was the first thing I saw?

If heaven was the octagon, then she was my angel at the center of it all, the girl with the power to take me down and lift me up again. The girl I wanted to fight for, the girl I wanted to claim. The girl who taught me that sometimes the biggest heroes go unsung and the most important battles are the ones we don’t think we can win.

**This is David 'Tag" Taggert's book, a supporting character introduced in The Law of Moses. This is a stand-alone story



Why I Am Waiting 


I've been dying to read an Amy Harmon books for a long time now. I especially want to read Making Faces and The Song Of Moses. I heard nothing but amazingly great raving reviews about her books. But I really want to read The Song Of David because I really haven't read a book with a MMA fighter in it, and this one looks and sounds utterly amazing. But I want to start to read The Song Of Moses first before I read The Song Of David.
