ARC Review: Hate F*@k: Part Two by Ainsley Booth

Title: Hate F*@k: Part Two
Author:  Ainsley Booth
Series: Hate F*@k #2
Genres: Adult, Suspense, Romance
Publication:  March 24th 2015

Summary (Goodreads):
It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Then it’s business as usual.

Cole:

I know I’ve fucked up, but I can fix this.

Hailey:

This can’t be fixed.

This is not a standalone book. It is part two in a three part serial.


My Thoughts:

**An eARC was provided by author in exchange of an honest review**

My gosh, this series is fast becoming one of my top favorites! I could absolutely not put this book down, I mean how could I when the first book left us hanging like that? As soon as I found this bad boy waiting for me in my inbox, I downloaded it immediately on my phone and started reading.

Hate F*@k: Part Two picked up right where Part One left off. Cole is covering for one of his clients, leaving Hailey shaken and with no idea what was going or if he was being set up, but she knows she's his alibi, problem is, Cole doesn't want to involve Hailey, but trying to keep her away and safe is proving to be a problem for them both when they find themselves falling for each other more and more.

When I read the first part, I thought it was action-packed, but when I started this book, I found out that things could get more complicated and Ainsley Booth has more in store for us. While I suspected that cole's team dealt with more than just PR stuff and there were a few hints dropped in the first book, I had my definite answer in this book. I loved that we get more insight on the teams work and what really was going. A lof of things were happening at the same time, and even though the book is not very long, it had me on my toes all the time, absorbing everything I was reading. Aisnley Booth knows how to pack a lot of action into a short book without it being overwhelming and I loved every second of it. Her writing is amazing and intertaining and it sucked me right in. 

Cole and Hailey are one of my favorite couples. Their relationship has developed and now they both realize the depths of their feelings for each other, but this didn't turn their relationship into a boring one. They are both still hard headed and the chemistry between them is as strong as ever, only now, a dash of romance and something sweet has been added to the mix. Cole is still a dirty-talking badass and he's even more protective now that problems seem to pop out of nowhere to keep them apart. He's even more intense and things always got hot and steamy whenever he was in the same room as Hailey. 

I can't wait to see what happens next and how things will play out after that ending. And belive me, if you thought the ending of Part One was bad, the ending of Part Two will have you rocking in a corner until the next book is out. 

Get your fans ready, people, you're in for a sexy and action-packed ride.

Release Day Launch: Getting Dirty by Mia Storm (Excerpt + Giveaway)



Hi, everyone! This post was supposed to go up yesterday, but I've been having problems with Blogger, and so this post went up today insted of it's schedueled time. Anyway, I'd like to say happy belated release day to Mia Storm! This book sounds like an amazing read and I can't wait to read it! Also, it's on sale for $.99 for 10 days from it's release, so go buy your copy now!



Dirty
A poem by Blaire Leon

If sex is dirty, why would I do it with someone I love?
If sex is dirty, then didn’t we all come from the dirt?
What if I like the dirt?
What if I want to get dirty?
What if I want to roll in the mud until I’m so fucking filthy that I’ll never be clean again?


When twenty-five-year-old graduate assistant Caiden Brenner asked Blaire Leon how old she was, she said she was a senior. He chose to believe she meant in college. They connect over Lord Byron’s Don Juan and, as their conversations become increasingly thicker with sexual innuendo, Caiden finds himself obsessing over a totally off-limits undergrad who’s bold, beautiful, brilliant, and one of the most passionate poets he’s ever met.

But it turns out Blaire hasn't been totally honest. She's the seventeen-year-old valedictorian of her high school class, taking courses at Sierra State while awaiting her acceptance to Stanford.

Will Caiden get too deeply into Blaire to back away before he finds out the truth? Or will their connection be enough to seduce him into risking his entire future on Jail Bait?

"A thousand and one feels....Getting Dirty is a thrilling, tantalizing forbidden romance you do not want to miss! I not only devoured this book, it devoured me right back!"--Katy Evans, New York Times Bestselling author of REAL


EXCERPT

Without realizing I’m doing it, I find I’m leaning toward her. I catch myself and stop. But before I can pull back, she closes the rest of the distance and presses her lips hard against mine.

Any thought that I shouldn’t be doing this evaporates like fog in a stiff breeze at the taste of her mouth, moving hungrily on mine. She’s scotch and fire on my tongue as she devours me. Right or wrong, I’m powerless to stop her.

Her fingers run down my face to my chest as she opens her mouth wider, inviting me deeper inside. I take the invitation, tasting as much of her as she’ll give me. Her hands tug at the hem of my shirt and my breath catches when cold fingers meet my warm abs.

I press harder against her, drawing her closer, and fire rips through my veins as our tongues and hands explore the new landscapes of each other’s mouths and bodies.

But a shard of coherent thought finally manages to pierce the bubble I’ve constructed to justify what I’m doing. “You’re a student,” I say against her mouth.

Her lips skim to my ear. “I like you, Caiden,” she whispers, and her saying my name with that hot breath, that wet mouth, is nearly enough to break my resolve. “I like you a lot.”

I take her by the shoulders and gently peel her away, my heart hammering out African drumbeats against my ribcage. “You’re so damn incredible, but I can’t do this. It’s totally against university rules. I’m sorry.”

“You’re not my professor,” she says, her expression wounded. “If we like each other, I don’t see why it should matter.”

“I’m Dr. Duncan’s graduate assistant. My boss is your professor. It’s a conflict of interest, since I do most of his grading.”

“So you are conflicted.” It’s clear from the predatory shift her expression takes that she hears that I’m trying to convince myself as much as her.

I drop my head against the headrest. “I am.”

She leans closer again, her breast pressing against my arm through the thin cotton of her top. “I’ll never say anything. No one needs to know,” she whispers, her breath feathering over my neck.



A Note From the Author:

Dear Potential Readers,

I've had several bloggers and readers contact me asking about the content of GETTING DIRTY and how the underage relationship was handled, so I thought I'd give you some background.

As you can easily see from the book description, this is a story about a under age girl hooking up with a older man. I know there may be some of you who area a bit squeamish about this topic. It is illegal, I am aware of that. But there is a reason I wanted to write this book that has nothing to do with sensationalism or shock value.

This book is a fictionalized autobiography.

Just a month before I turned seventeen, I met a man who was twenty-four. Our connection was instant. For months we kept it platonic, even though neither of us could deny the attraction. We never had the actual discussion, but we both knew our relationship would be viewed by others (including my parents and the law) as inappropriate. But, despite our best efforts, we fell in love and started dating when I was seventeen. I've always wanted to write a love story that reflected everything I was feeling at that age, in that situation. So here it is.

For you hesitant readers, I can tell you that this illegal affair is not glamorized or sensationalize. There are severe consequences to the actions my characters choose to take. I wanted the topic handled honestly and realistically. I know this story isn't for everyone, but if you choose to read, I hope you enjoy.

All my best,

Mia

Waiting on Wednesday #16


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on:

Tilte: Sweet Temptation
Author: Wendy Higgins
Series: The Sweet Trilogy #4
Genres: YA, Paranormal, Romance
PublicationSeptember 8th 2015 by HarperCollins/HarperTeen

Blurb:
Bad boy Kaidan Rowe has never wanted for anything—money, popularity, musical talent…hot girls—but seducing them is part of his duty as a Nephilim, slave to the demon Dukes. As the son of the Duke of Lust, Kaidan has learned his father’s ways, becoming a master of passion, a manipulator of chemistry. Disobeying his father would mean certain death. Thankfully for Kaidan, he’s good at his job. And he enjoys it. 

Until he meets Anna Whitt—sweet, smart, feisty, and inexplicably good—the one girl seemingly immune to his charms. The daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, she has a certain power over him, one that makes him wish for more than he could ever deserve. 

Determined to save all the Neph from their dark lives as the influencers of sin, Anna joins forces with Kaidan to overcome the demons’ oppressive ways. In the light of her affections, Kaidan must undergo his toughest test of all, a battle of the heart.

Sensual and swoon worthy, this companion volume to the acclaimed Sweet Evil series from New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins, told from the perspective of the irresistibly sexy and mysterious Kaidan Rowe, gives readers revealing insights into his struggle, his intense connection to Anna, and most of all, the true emotions that drive him.


Author Note:
Sweet Temptation will encompass the entire trilogy in a condensed version, beginning with Kai's life before he met Anna, and taking readers through the epilogue of Sweet Reckoning. Sweet Temptation is a companion novel, not meant to be a stand alone story. It will definitely be a richer experience for those who have read the original trilogy.


Oh, I'm so excited for this book! I can't wait to get my hands on it and to get inside Kais head. He has been on my top favourite book boyfriends since I read the first book in this series, and I never stopped loving him. I mean, who wouldn't fall in love with a guy who's the epitome of seduction and sin? 

What are you waiting on?

Hi, guys! Today, I have the prologue of Silver Bastard by Joanna Wylde! Be prepared though, it will shock you and drive you crazy and you'll want the book this very second. Check it out below and tell me what you think!

Blurb
First in the new Silver Valley series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club Novels. Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward--full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That's when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he'd violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew. Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She's been terrified of him ever since, but she's even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from... But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She's living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can't ignore. She has to go back, and there's only one man she can trust to go with her--the ex-con biker who rescued her once before. Puck will help her again, but this time it'll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants...
