Co-Wrecker by Meghan Quinn Blog Tour


What do ice cream and Sadie Montgomery have in common?
They're both ice cold, but one taste is never enough.

I wanted to be friends — I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd — but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind.

I’d make my coworker fall for me.

I’d like to say it was simple, but like every other epic love story, all it took was one drunken night and a lot of naked courage to get the girl. For a moment, at least.

Love with a coworker is never simple, especially since Sadie’s trying to keep us on the low. Not to mention her persistent ex-boyfriend who won’t leave her alone. But I’ve never been good at giving up, and I don’t plan to start now.

The whole thing is a recipe for a rocky road, but I plan to eat the whole gallon, no matter how bad the brain freeze.

Knowing I will probably regret this, I lift from the freezer, ice cream scraper in hand, and jerk toward Sadie just in time to slip on some melted ice on the floor shooting me across the fountain and straight into Sadie.

But not just Sadie; straight into her chest—her billowing, womanly chest. It’s a satisfyingly soft cushion for my head but from her instant outrage, I’m going to guess she’s not keen on me using her breasts as a pillow.

“What the hell are you doing?” she asks, trying to back away, difficult when I’ve got her pinned against the counter.

Fumbling to get some kind of grasp on my falling body, scraper still in hand, I give her a bit of motor boat—not on purpose—and muffle in her breasts, “I’m sowwy.”

“Get off me.”

“I’m twying,” I say, finally getting a grip on the counter behind her and standing tall. Glasses askew, hat on the floor, and a smothered feeling on my face, I straighten my apron and clear my throat. “My apologies.” Her friend is laughing, hand on her stomach, as I push my glasses back on my nose. “Although, I’m grateful for your sturdy bosom for catching my fall. It might have been a twisty straw to the eye, and I’m not sure my glasses would have held up on such an impact.”

Sturdy bosom? Shit, Andrew, don’t fucking say words like bosom. And for the love of God, don’t say a woman has a STURDY bosom. Say words like tits. Tits are more manly.

“Tits,” I mutter.

“Excuse me?” Sadie has the look of horror on her face.

Fuck, did I say that out loud?

“I think he said tits, Sadie,” her friend cuts in, thumbing through the straw holder. Yup, I said tits out loud.

“I heard him, Smills,” Sadie mutters under her breath.

Glaring at me, looking for an answer, I shrug my shoulders, because I have nothing. No way of digging myself out of this one. Funny how your brain can literally stop working the minute you need it the most. Come on, old fella, kick it into high gear. Come up with something witty, something snarky, something that will put a Band-Aid over this rather raw and embarrassing incident.

But, good fuck. I just had my face in her chest. What man could come back quickly from that?

“Well...” Sadie has her arms crossed over her bosom, waiting for an answer. No. Her arms are crossed over her breasts. Shit. Shit.

Nerves crawl up the back of my neck, igniting my ears into lava levels of heat. Crap. Just say anything.

Clearing my throat, I pat her shoulder and say, “Sturdy tits.”

And here I thought it couldn’t get any worse, at least my hand didn’t pat down her breast to see if her nipples were made of steel, or to see if her areolas consist of chain-link mesh. You have to look at the positive.

I am a huge fan of Ms Quinn's work – and every time I start one of her books, I both recognise the style and have to take a few pages to get into the crazy! This book is no exception. It has some really signature zany moments and some which undoubtedly make you stop and think.

The story is told from both Andrew and Sadie's points of view, with some overlap so that we get to understand just how their viewpoints differ. Andrew is new in town, having had to up and leave his previous college – I loved the suspense waiting to find out why and Ms. Quinn did not disappoint. He has a brother living in town, so is not entirely alone, but certainly doesn't have the network of friends that Sadie can count on. This helps provide the hinge on which the story rests – because she refuses to believe that she needs him, until it is almost too late.

In amongst the zany are some poignant moments – which manage to remain so, even with the level of sarcasm and banter that flows around. It is not classic literature for sure, but definitely entertaining.

I did not take advantage of having read it on a Tuesday!




Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Bossed by Sloane Howell


He’s the boss. But she’s ready to take charge.

In this provocative and sexy* office romance, a cheeky new hire tempts a hotshot sports agent to mix business with pleasure.


Jenny

Job interviews are a bitch under the best of circumstances, but when your potential boss is the world’s biggest prick, that’s when you should simply walk away. It’s just that I need this job so badly—and I’m mesmerized by Ethan Mason’s piercing gaze. Men like him aren’t supposed to exist in real life. But under the tailored suits and GQ looks, Ethan simmers with barely restrained ambition. And no matter how hard I work to fight the attraction, I’m going to get burned.

Ethan

You don’t become a top agent without learning how to close a deal. I always get what—or who—I want, by staying cool and in command. Then Jenny Jackson walks into my office with her lush curves and “screw you” attitude and blows away my intentions of keeping things professional. All I can think about is exploring the perfect body hidden beneath those conservative clothes or shutting her saucy mouth with one hot kiss. Jenny’s worth breaking the rules over—if I can convince her to break the rules for me.

*By sexy, we mean sexy. Like, 18+ sexy.

I absolutely loved every page of this book. I’m giving it 5 SUPER steamy stars!

Ethan is the owner of a sports agency and a total d-bag to his employees and pretty much everyone else in his life, especially in the beginning. Then enter Jenny. Jenny’s a huge baseball fanatic and developed this love watching and learning baseball with her father. Now, her father is terminally ill and Jenny needs a new job to earn an income that will support his care. She’s applied at Ethan’s company and after an intense meeting, lands the job… the attraction between the two is off the charts, but Ethan can’t let anything happen between the two on the chance that his staff will find out and see him as being weak. But, Ethan can’t get Jenny off his mind and the two begin a crazy rollercoaster of a relationship.

This is one of those books that will have tears streaming down your face from laughter one page and then crying for totally different reasons the next. It’s emotional, drama-filled, and just awesome. I can’t wait to read more from this author!

Side note – I’m completely obsessed with Matt, Ethan’s best friend, and Kelsey, Jenny’s best friend getting their own story… so fingers crossed!


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is a fun read – which is not too demanding, the writing flows very smoothly and the plot is not unfamiliar.

The setup works well, and whilst their behaviour in the office would send an HR manager into a tail spin, it was amusing to read. Matt was the unsung hero, and I rather hope that this becomes the first in a series, as there were a number of characters who deserved a happily ever after too. What I really liked was that Jenny and Ethan came from the same place – and once they worked that out, they understood each other so much better.

A worthwhile read, thank you Ms. Howell.

Meant for You by Michelle Major


Single mom Jenny Castelli has a temper to match her red hair. When the former mean girls of her high school insult her son, Jenny fires off a big lie—that she’s engaged to a rich, handsome guy and is bringing him to their ten-year reunion. Now she needs to find the perfect fake fiancé for one night. And only one man fits the bill.

Geek turned tech entrepreneur Owen Dalton already had his heart broken by Jenny Castelli. Still, he finds himself agreeing to her proposition—even as he struggles to remember that the chemistry sparking between them isn’t real. But when Jenny’s ex makes a play for custody and Owen is forced to deal with the family who always treated him as “second best,” their arrangement suddenly becomes very personal. And that lie they’ve been telling everyone? It isn’t nearly as big as the one they’ve been telling themselves.

As a mom, you will do anything to protect your kids and Jenni is no exception. Twelve years ago, her world was turned upside down with an unexpected pregnancy, the rich boyfriend who turned out to be a douchebag, and once again, all the "mean girls" at her fancy private school looking down on her as if she were the trash that needed to be taken out. Now the mean girls are back and have goaded her into attending her high school reunion with her current fiancé, the one and only Owen Dalton. You know, the nice guy that she just happened to run off because he was "just that into her?" Oh, did I forget to say he was rich, too?

Owen hasn't forgotten Jenni or what she did to him almost two years ago. He misses the friendship he had with her and hasn't quite gotten over the feeling that he wasn't enough for her. One more person in his life that he wasn't quite enough for. His parents tended to think he wasn't athletic enough, his former fiancée probably thought he wasn't sexy enough, and it was obvious that his brother thought he wasn't enough of anything since he was the one who stole his former fiancée away from him.

Today is different. Jenni needs a favor and so does he. Owen will pretend to be her fiancé at her high school reunion and Jenni will return the favor at his brother's wedding. The sticking point? What will Jenni's twelve-year-old son think? Turns out that Cooper is the man with the plan.

Loved the book and all its elements!



Michelle Major grew up in Ohio but dreamed of living in the mountains. More than twenty years ago, she pointed her car west and settled in Colorado. Today her home includes her husband, their two children, several furry pets, and a couple of well-behaved reptiles. She’s grateful to have found her passion for writing stories with happy endings.

Angie☆☆☆
The blurb had me thinking this book was going to be really good. I found it to be really dull honestly. There were so many times I found myself skimming the pages, times where there wasn't a lot of dialogue and I was just waiting and hoping for something to happen. At times, I could feel the connection between the characters, and other times it was like two strangers were together. Usually when the book doesn't hold my attention I can always look forward to the great sex scenes, well this book didn't really have that either, it was implied, not described. I am sure others will enjoy this book, it just wasn't for me.



Author of gay romantic fiction, from contemporary to paranormal and everything in between.

For Casey, existence equals writing. History nerd, film enthusiast, music lover, avid gamer, and just an all-around geek. Add in an unapologetic addiction to loose-leaf tea and you get the general picture. Married, with furry four-legged children, Casey lives happily in the middle of nowhere Ohio.

“SO YOU’RE GONNA want to keep your toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails under your chest like this,” Dylan said as he lay across the surfboard to show me the basics of his favorite pastime on the secluded stretch of beach. Not that I was paying much attention to the words coming out of his mouth. I was much more interested in the way his muscles flexed beneath the skintight Body Glove wetsuit he wore.

As he pushed himself up into a standing position, my gaze traveled down the broad expanse of his back and down to his ass.

“See how my dominant leg is in the back, and— Ace? Are you paying attention?”

“Mhmm,” I murmured as I bit down on my lower lip and continued my perusal.

Dylan turned to face me, and his hands went to his hips. “Oh yeah?” he said when I looked up. “What did I just say?”

Taking a step forward, I gave him a cocky grin and tugged him off the surfboard and onto the sand until he was flush against me. Then I let my hands roam down over the firm, round muscles of his ass. “Something about being a dominant in the back,” I said, nipping at his lobe. “So why don’t you turn around?”

A groan of frustration left Dylan then, but his head tilted to the side to let my lips trail down his neck. “You’re not gonna feel so cocky when you can’t get up on that board.”

“Oh, I can always get it up, don’t you worry.”

His hands covered my chest and he gently pushed me away. “How about you prove it, hotshot?” Then he pointed to the longboard I’d rented for the weekend. “Why don’t you show me how it’s done.”

“It’s more fun watching you.”

“Ace. Get your ass on that board.”

I squinted in the sun and grinned. “You gonna be this bossy all weekend?”

“If you’re lucky.”

I took a step back so I was by my board, and crossed my arms. I had my wetsuit on, but it was still undone and hanging around my hips while Dylan walked me through this process step by step, and my move had the desired effect. He rubbed a hand up the back of his neck and over his hair, leaving it tousled and oh so sexy.

“What?” I asked. “I’m back on my side of the board.”

“Don’t try and act innocent with me, Locke. I’m trying to teach you a new skill. One that will keep you from hurting yourself. And you’re standing there being all…” He waved his hand up and down, gesturing to my exposed upper body.

“Yes?”

“See. Stop it,” he said, and then pointed to the board. “And zip up that damn wetsuit so I can’t see all your muscles.”

I arched a brow as I moved to slip my arms through the stretchy synthetic material, and when I reached for the zipper and pulled it up to the base of my skull, Dylan groaned.

“Okay, that’s almost worse than no wetsuit.”

“I’m sorry. You’re not checking me out, are you? Because you’re supposed to be paying close attention to teaching me something that could save my life,” I said as I turned around and made a show of bending down to get on the board.

“You having fun right now?” Dylan asked.

“Maybe a little.”

“Yeah, well, let’s hope that holds true when the wave dumps you on your ass.”

I let out a sigh and gripped the board just as he’d told me, because the truth of the matter was, I had never surfed a day in my life. I grew up in Chicago, for God’s sake. But Dylan, with his sun-kissed hair, long, lean body, and eyes the color of the sea, looked right at home with the sun shining down on him as his feet sank into the sand by my head.

“Let’s try this a couple more times here on land, and then we’ll get you out in the water. We won’t have you trying to stand up just yet. But if you can get the hang of at least catching the wave into the shore, we might be able to progress.” He crouched down and said, “Remember, toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails, and then push up.”

As I did as he instructed, I paused in the push-up position and was rewarded when he leaned in and took my lips in a sweet kiss.

“Again,” he whispered, and I moved back down to repeat the move, and this time when I paused, I was rewarded with a deeper kiss. When he pulled away too soon, I grumbled and he laughed, straightening. “Any more of that and we won’t make it into the water. On your feet, Locke, it’s time to hit the waves.”

At the end of Locked, Ace Locke proposed to Dylan Prescott on national television. Now the boys are back to plan the wedding of the century. All things regarding making wedding decisions turn Ace off, he really doesn't care about the how, when, where he just wants to make Dylan happy and live happily ever after. Paige needs to work her magic to get the guys to make some final decisions, which includes a hilarious bachelor party weekend. Brenda is back making demands and making Dylan's life outright miserable. Can Ace and Dylan have it all while they try to avoid the paparazzi and control Brenda to have the wedding of their dreams?

HOLY HOTNESS! Dylan and Ace can bring the sexy! Sunshine and Ziggy are fun in whatever scene they are placed into. The bachelor party was so much fun. I love that every amazing couple this duo has written showed up in this final installment.

I am so sad to see this couple's story come to an end. It was such an amazing tale from start to finish.


Angie☆☆☆☆☆
This was such a wonderful ending to this couple. I laughed, I cried, and I loved every minute of it. Super sweet and at times over the top, but I enjoyed it so much. I love catching up with the other couples from other books, that was awesome. I just love Derek and Posh and of course, Logan and Tate, I might have to re-read their story again, I realized how much I missed them. Hot and steamy and a perfect ending for the perfect couple.

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her 'quiet time.' Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

Brooke is a USA Today Bestselling Author and enjoys writing sassy contemporary romance, whether in the form of comedy, suspense, or erotica. The latter has scarred her conservative Southern family for life, bless their hearts.

If you'd like to get in touch with her, she's easy to find - just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that's dominated her cell phone for ten years.

Counting Down by Kelly Jensen


It’s been a week since a Christmas Eve blizzard changed the course of Marcus Winnamore’s life. Plan A is now Plan B, and the first item on his new agenda is taking Henry Auttenberg on a date. They’ve been invited to a New Year’s Eve party, and Marc is counting down the hours until midnight… until he can kiss Henry in front of his colleagues and friends.

Things don’t quite work out to plan. Finding the elevator out of service, Marc and Henry check the stairs, only to choose the wrong door and become locked in the basement. Close quarters once again make for close conversation, and as they explore every avenue of escape, they also explore the deepening attraction between them. For Marc, this isn’t an experiment. Will he still feel that way when he has to admit to someone other than Henry that he’s gay?

Counting Down was an enjoyable follow-up to Counting Fence Posts. Picking up a week after the events in book one, we join Marc and Henry as they’re on their way to a company New Year’s Eve party. Marc is still coming to terms with the fact that he’s gay and that the object of his newly discovered affection, Henry, is actually interested in him. Marc envisions The Kiss at midnight to be the best way to announce to his colleagues that he’s gay and to prove to Henry that he’s all in. However, disaster seems to be a close companion for this new couple as Marc and Henry find themselves locked in the building’s basement instead of upstairs for the party.

I thought Jensen did a fantastic job of capturing Marc’s character and the change in personal attitudes he’s dealing with. Marc is trying to find a balance between his heterosexual upbringing and thought patterns and how he thinks he now needs to approach dating men, specifically Henry. He doesn’t want to offend Henry by treating him as he would a female partner, but Marc also doesn’t want to not give Henry the attention and concern he should simply because “guys don’t talk about their feelings.” Because the story is told from Marc’s point of view, we don’t get a lot of insight into what Henry is thinking. However, Henry is a good communicator – when he can get Marc to shut up – and it’s easy to see that while Henry wants things to work out between him and Marc, he’s willing to do what he can to make this transition for Marc easier. Obviously, the date did not go quite as planned, but Jensen does manage to include a steamy and well-timed scene in which the guys get all hot and bothered, ringing in the New Year in their own way. If you’ve read Counting Fence Posts – and I strongly suggest you do that first so you have the background on how these two came to be – don’t pick this up expecting to find the happy ending of Marc and Henry’s story. Counting Down is more of the next chapter in their blossoming relationship and it left me hoping that Jensen will be inspired to continue to move their story forward as this is a couple I would definitely like to read more about.

When he takes a chance and hires a good-looking young tourist to help him on the homestead, Lochie begins to wonder just how heated this year’s harvest will be. Will he be able to put his worries aside and take a chance on love?

Ruthie☆☆☆☆
I really enjoyed this short novel. It also left open a possibility for some more stories to flow from this part of the Australian Outback – which would be very welcome.

At heart this is, like most romances, a really simple case of two people finding that they have found their 'one.' However, given James is a man from Arizona on a trip to escape his father's work demands for just a bit longer, and Lachlan is wedded to his land in the Outback, it is hardly convenient. Add in the problems of Lachlan being closeted for fear of what the other farmers in the community might say or do, and there are plenty of hurdles to cross – and that's not mentioning the spiders...

There is a lot of story and plenty of passion between these two men who definitely find each other irresistible.

Another good read Ms. Lynne, thank you.



An avid reader for years, one day Carol Lynne decided to write her own brand of erotic romance. Carol juggles between being a full-time mother and a full-time writer. These days, you can usually find Carol either cleaning jelly out of the carpet or nestled in her favourite chair writing steamy love scenes.
