Profited:
One night. Let go. Be free.

Even at an early age, Reid Hunter’s future was already planned out. Though he was groomed to become successor of the family business, he quickly discovered his destiny wasn’t through his family’s legacy, but to build his own empire. His plan: takeover Vegas, one building at a time. Known as a hard, no-nonsense man, inside the boardroom and out, Reid isn’t prepared when he comes face to face with a woman from his past. The only one with the ability to make him question everything he stands for.

Raising a child is hard. Raising a child as a young, single mother is downright difficult. Yet Dani Whitley has managed to put herself through college, purchase her own home, and raise the unexpected, but greatly adored son she created while in college, after one night with a gorgeous stranger. Knowing nothing but his first name, Dani has managed to push all thought of Reid out of her mind until one day, nine years later, she is forced to face the man himself. Ruthless and callous, Reid Hunter is nothing like the young man she met at that music festival all those years ago. Yet Dani is still drawn to him, more than she was before.

Sin. Money. Success. Profits. That’s the foundation of Las Vegas. But what happens when one day you realize that it’s not enough? When the greatest thing you could profit is bigger and better than money: love.

Excerpt:

I’m lost in those steel gray eyes while we continue to ignore all conversation around us. When they announce that dinner is being served, we pull our eyes away from each other. A delicious smelling plate is placed before me, but my mind won’t calm down enough to even enjoy it. I keep thinking about those all-consuming, carnal eyes and the unspoken words they said to me. Like a deer in a field with a lone wolf, I know that my time is limited. I’m about to be devoured. Consumed.

And the food in front of me is the last thing on my mind.

“Eat,” he whispers against my ear. “You’re going to need your energy.”

I swear my sharp inhale can be felt by everyone in the room, and certainly heard. But when I look up, all conversations and dining around me seems to continue. Risking a quick glance over at Reid, I watch as he slowly moves a piece of steak towards his mouth. Using his teeth, he gently pulls the meat from his fork in the most erotic display of eating I’ve ever witnessed. My body shivers with anticipation as goose bumps pepper my heated skin. Reid does nothing to hide the smirk on his lips as he slowly chews his food.

I practically orgasm in my seat.

“Eat,” he whispers heatedly with a wink, that knowing smirk still plastered on his face.

MY REVIEW

I think the author sold Xander when he described his voice when Paige heard him singing; sweet, alluring, with a touch of gravel.

Paige and Xander connected right away. Xander was a man that was so easy to like and easy to connect to. I felt like when he came along, he was someone that Paige needed to meet, yet it didn’t come out like a prince charming type of romance. In the beginning it was a friendship which I loved. I’m not a fan of insta-love and really love for the characters to build up to it and that’s what I felt like was happening as I read.

Xander and Paige’s characters aren’t too complex which might bother some readers, but I love it. This has the feel of a small town romance. I’m a small town girl, so I can relate. I enjoyed their conversations and the pace that things were carried throughout the book. It felt real to me; like I could be reading about someone I know….

Then it gets deep! Once I thought I might have a thing or two figured out, I soon found out that I didn’t. I love that sort of suspense in my books. It wasn’t over the top with the romance, but there was enough for me to enjoy it. I thought the book was very well written. I can’t wait to see what comes next!! This author is definitely going on my list of ones to watch for!!
"How about twenty questions?" I ask.
"I hate twenty questions."
"How about five questions, then?"
He cracks a smile and lifts an eyebrow. "How about three?"
"Deal!"
"So, have I mentioned how much I fucking hate Tuesdays?" Brandi's voice cuts right between us. Xander looks relieved.
Me? Not so much. "Damn it, Brandi!"
"What?"
"Oh nothing. Can you grab me Fireball though? Pretty please. Two of them." I look at Xander. "You're taking one."
"Three. I am too, bitch! Fuck Tuesdays!" Brandi calls out from across the bar as she begins filling the shot glasses from the Fireball chiller.
"Question one. You said you’ve been traveling for a while now, right? Do you ever get tired of it? Ever feel like settling?”
"Damn. Starting out with the heavy hitters, huh?" He eyes the shot glasses as if hoping it will somehow make them fill faster.
"Need me to go easier on you? Maybe a finger or two first before I go in with the whole fist?"
He looks at me in disbelief. "Did you really just say that?"
"Just answer the question, two fingers or three?"

A tragic past threatens to destroy a passionate future in this dangerously sexy new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Wicked for You.
After a violent tragedy nearly destroyed her, Lily Taylor ran away, changed her name, and started over. When her deadly nemesis resurfaces to eliminate his loose end, she turns to the last man she should trust—a stranger with a history of violence and an intoxicating sexuality she can’t refuse…

Though strong-armed into locating Lily to help put away a drug lord, ex-con Stone Sutter isn’t anyone’s snitch. When he finds the terrified beauty, he vows to keep her safe—but he isn’t sure he has the strength to shield her from his own desires.

As an unquenchable fire sparks between them, Lily’s tormentor stalks ever closer, and she must overcome her darkest fear to survive. Can she trust the bond she and Stone have formed as they’re falling in deeper?

Excerpt 3

Jack stretched and rolled over in bed. Bright sunshine filled the bedroom, magnified by the bright white snow covering everything outside the windows. As he looked outside, a male skier swooshed by on the fresh powder.
 On mornings like this, after a night like hed just had, Jack could appreciate the beauty and wonder of the mountains. But hed still rather be at the beach. And he couldnt wait to show Sandy his new hometown.
Good morning. Sandy looked at him, propped up on her elbow, looking like a snow angel in the white linen sheets.
Jack leaned over and wrapped his arms around her, pulling her close. Good morning. Last night was amazing.
Sandys cheeks flushed. I agree. So now what?
Breakfast? Jack knew her question meant more. He didnt know exactly, but he did know that somehow, someway, they needed to find a way to build this relationship. Arent you hungry, too?
Sandy playfully punched his arm. Thats not what I was talking about. You know what I mean.
