Release Day Blitz (Teaser & Excerpt): Sweet by Tammara Webber

It’s finally here!!!

  

Blurb:

 He’s the love of her life, but he doesn’t know it.

She’s his one moment of sacrifice in a lifetime of survival.

He was damaged and wild, but resilient.
She’s always been obedient; now she’s restless.

Home for the summer between college and med school, Pearl Torres Frank knows two things: Boyce Wynn is the embodiment of everything she should run from, and everything she wants to run to. Rebellious and loud. Unconcerned with society’s opinion of him. Passionate. Strong. Dangerous.

And one more trait he hides from everyone but her:

Sweet.

EXCERPT:

In four years, nothing had erased or even dimmed my memories of Boyce. His kiss. His touch. The disorientingintensity of his gaze. I was a different person now, and so was he, but apparently those transformations didn’t matter to this thing I felt. For my heart, he was a grounding wire, the needle of a compass, a gravitational pull.

* * *

Of all the possible scenarios I’d imagined for this summer, living in a trailer with Boyce Wynn hadn’t been one of them. A trailer that at the moment contained one bed. “I guess I’ll just sleep—”

“In my bed.”

The hand gesturing toward the living room froze midair. I’ve heard people say My heart stopped—which of course isn’t possible unless you’ve just died—but I now understood where the perception might originate. “Uh.”

“I’ll take the sofa,” he said.

Embarrassment washed over me. He wasn’t propositioning me. He was being courteous. I lowered my hand, halfconvinced I’d fallen into an alternate universe where my mother kicked me out of the house and Boyce Wynn was proper. “You don’t have to do that.”

He arched a brow, his eyes glowing with mischief. “You want me to sleep with you?”

Or not.

Book Review: The Deal by Elle Kennedy

Garrett Graham is the captain of the hockey team at Briar University. He also just flunked his Philosophy Ethics midterm. He needs to maintain a C+ average to keep playing. Luckily, his professor is allowing students to take a makeup exam.

Hannah Wells is a singer/songwriter at the same Ivy League School. She just aced her midterm.

Their meet-cute happens when Garrett helps Hannah gather her items after she stumbles outside of the classroom. He spots her grade on the exam and tries to charm her into tutoring him.

“C’mon, do me a solid. If I fail this makeup, my GPA will implode. Please?” I flash a smile, the one that makes my dimples pop out and never fails to make girls melt.
“Does that usually work?” she asks curiously.
“What?”
“The aw-shucks little boy grin…Does it help you get your way?”
“Always,” I answer without hesitation.

Well, it doesn’t work on Hannah. But Garrett doesn’t give up. He comes into her workplace and again tries to charm her into tutoring him. When that fails, he texts her. There’s a cute exchange between them which involves Garrett sending her a pic of his chest. Yet again, she declines to help him.

They meet again at a frat party. Garrett figures out that she has a crush on Justin Kohl, wide receiver for the football team. He doesn’t think Hannah has a chance with Justin because she doesn’t have social status. Of course, Garrett offers to help change that.
He takes her to huge bash and she to tutor him. She reluctantly agrees.

Through the tutoring sessions, they get to know each other and a friendship builds along with a growing attraction. One of Hannah’s secrets is that she was raped in high school and can’t obtain an orgasm. Garrett helps her with this, in stages. Which she doesn’t like.

“Let’s have sex,” she announces.
“No.”
“What do you mean, no?” she demand.
“Tonight was a big step for you, but I think that’s how we need to handle it from now on. In steps.”

Garrett also has secrets of his own which involve his father. He has told no one but eventually opens up to Hannah about it.

This book may sound like many of the NA books out there, but what makes this book shine how Elle Kennedy writes it. There is cute, funny banter between Garrett and Wellsy (the nickname that Garrett gives her.) Yes, they have tragic pasts, but they don’t allow it to rule who they are. It’s also very sweet and heartbreaking as Garrett and Wellsy try to decide if what they feel for each other is just an intense sexual attraction or possibly something more.

There are so many great scenes in this book, from the interactions with Hannah and Garrett’s friends, to Garrett Googling how to help Hannah with her first orgasm to the penis locker room.

I was charmed by Wellsy and Garrett’s story and smiled and chuckled through most of it. Fortunately, this is the start of series and I can’t wait for the the next book.

Book Review: The Hook Up by Kristen Callihan

“That first night. It was the best damn feeling I’ve had in my life. And I’ve won the fucking Heisman!”

Anna Jones and Drew Baylor, seniors, meet in a philosophy class. There’s a spark that Anna tries to deny. Drew acknowledges and attempts to flirt with her.

“Standing there, I became aware of myself, this big oaf, looming over her, my tongue thick in my mouth, a crazy twitch starting up on my cheek. God help me if she noticed that twitch. So I blurted out what is possibly the stupidest thing I’ve ever uttered in my life, “Hey, Big Red.” “

Yeah. Shoot me now. What the holy hell had I done?”

When they do eventually hook up, Drew pushes Anna for more, a relationship beyond the casual. He gets very except when Anna refuses to kiss him. This results in their first fight.

Anna has reasons for not wanting anything resembling a relationship. She grew up watching her mom go through a revolving door of men. Drew has a tragedy in his life. Both his parents died the summer after he graduated from high school.

When they eventually have that big blowout fight (where clothing is thrown out the door), I was heartbroken for them. The fight felt authentic and not over the top to play on our emotions.

This book is fine example of the New Adult genre. Anna and her friends, Drew and his football teammates make the college believable. Add in the chemistry between Anna and Drew, great banter, and spicy sex and it makes this book one of my favorites of the year. I look forward to the next book in the series, which sadly, won’t be out until 2015.

Go buy & read this book now!
