Blog Tour CAPTIVATED BY HIM by Terri E. Laine



Captivated by Him, an all-new standalone from Terri E. Laine about an imperfect hero and the woman he can't let go is LIVE!



Captivated by Him by Terri E. Laine
Genre: New Adult Romance
Publishing Date: December 5th, 2017


Fate plays matchmaker with my heart by repeatedly putting Gavin Volk in my path. Our mutually insane attraction is instant, captivating me from the first time we meet.

The wickedly gorgeous guy knows how to set my body on fire with just one look.
And he’s there for me like no guy has been before.

Only, he says he’s not boyfriend material, not good enough for me. But he won’t give me
a reason why. 

If rumors at our college are to be believed, he's dangerous, connected to the mob. I know he would never hurt me physically, but mentally he's shielded by secrets he doesn't trust me enough to share.

Yet, every time he kisses me, I feel it deep down in my soul.
Just when I think I’ve broken down his barriers, he builds a fortress between us again.

Though I want him.
And I know he wants me.
His secrets keep me far from his heart.

I should walk away with my pride intact.
I can’t keep allowing him in my life only to be shattered when he walks away.
Either he proves his love by trusting me or he needs to let me go for good.

However, my greatest fear is that if he tells me what he's hiding, will I be strong enough to stay?



REVIEW:

Gavin captured my attention in Because of Him. We got a glimpse into his life. We saw that there was a connection between Gavin and Megan.  But we didn't know what happened between the two that kept them apart.

Knowing what I know now, I see why Gavin did what he did. Sometimes when you love someone, you need to let them go. Megan's safety meant more that his own happiness. He saw that the 'family' did to those that he loved. Loving someone made them a target.  

With each turn of the page, the author reveals hints. Hints that by the end of the book, I had an Oh My God moment. I would have never connected the dots. I would have never pieced this puzzle together. 

Not only did Gavin sacrifice himself for those that he loves, his family did as well. Gavin will stop at nothing to protect that he loves.  Gavin doesn't explain any of this to Megan, therefore, Megan grows tired of the cat and mouse game. Megan has been captivated by him from the moment she met him. She was drawn to him, in ways that she couldn't explain. But after months of being around each other, being drawn to each other, Gavin takes a little of what Megan is offering. But that isn't enough for Megan. She wants more. She wants all of Gavin. But when Gavin tells her he can't. that may be the last straw. If he doesn't want her, than he needs to leave her alone. Stop showing up where she is, and stop interfering in her life. 

But sometimes when our heads tell us one thing, our hearts tell us something entirely different. The heart is the strongest muscle in our bodies. The heart is what keeps us going. Will Megan follow her heart?  Will Gavin follow his? Will Gavin stay away from Megan?  The better question is, can he stay away from her. 

I have to say, I am obsessed with the covers from this series....  OBSESSED. Talk about holy hotness. I can totally envision these two men in the stories.

Kudos to Terri. This series rocks.

Excerpt:

“If you want to walk me, you can. But I can make it on my own.”
“Lead the way.”
I had to adjust myself; it was going to be an uncomfortable walk. When I glanced up, I got an eye full of her fantastic ass and had to catch up if I didn’t want fucking blue balls tonight.
When we were side by side, she cast me a look. “And don’t think you’re talking your way up to my room. It’s a boy-free zone.”
I chuckled. “You’ve made your point. Believe it or not, I don’t have to beg.”
It was her turn to laugh. “Your ego knows no bounds.”
“It’s not ego, Angel. It’s a fact. And though you are on a short list of girls who have turned me down since before high school, it’s cool.”
She stopped in front of a red brick building, and now I knew which building held her dorm. I filed that away for future reference.
“Well, it’s healthy you learn that not all women are susceptible to your charms.”
Her warm palm reached up and patted my cheek. I captured her wrist and turned it to press a kiss to the skin at the juncture of her hand and arm.
“Never say never, Angel. I might corrupt you yet.”

BEHIND THE BARS by Brittainy C. Cherry is available for preorder!




“When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops. 
When we met again, I became her darkest storm. “


BEHIND THE BARS, an all new emotional and powerful standalone by Author Brittainy C Cherry is now available for preorder for only 99¢!

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.
The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.
Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.
And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.
She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.

Caged.

Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.
Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.


When we met again, she was the darkest storm.

THE BACHELOR CONTRACT by Rachel Van Dyken




A second-chance romance from the #1 New York Times bestseller of The BetMatchmaker and Elite series!

She's everywhere.

Ex-wife.

Love of his life.

The last person in the world he wanted to see...ever.

And now that he's working beside her every day, he can't escape her. Her scent, glimpses of her smile, even the tension in the air that makes his body hum with the kind of need he'd only experienced with one person-all of it is driving him over the edge.

Brant Wellington was certain of three things:

Alcohol wasn't going to solve this.

He really was losing his F-ing mind.

And his gorgeous ex-wife was going to be the death of him.

NOTE: The print and ebook editions have different covers!




Excerpt


It was Brant.
Always Brant.
Maybe that was because they’d never had any real closure. Just fighting, yelling, and then silence.
God, she’d hated the silence so much more than the yelling.
The silence crackled with tension—it was always filled with more meaning than when words were actually spoken.
It wasn’t the yelling that had killed their relationship.
It was the silence that had followed. When he had every opportunity to fix it—and didn’t.
Why was it so hard to move on? Probably because she hadn’t tried.
Instead, she’d worked. Tried to stay positive. And hoped.
Damn hope. Stupid hope.

“He’s not coming back for me,” she whispered, knowing that if she finally admitted he wasn’t coming, she would have to take her part of the blame in why. Because it wasn’t just on him to come running back. A small part of her knew that it was her job to meet him halfway. Instead, she’d ignored the need in his eyes, the desperate plea in his voice, and allowed grief to swallow her whole. Because at the time she’d needed someone to blame, and it was easier blaming him than herself.
