Title: Breakaway: A Rule Book Novel
Author: A.M. Johnson
Genre: Sports Romance (Stand alone)

Release Date: March 15, 2018

 

As Tampa Bay’s star center, Mark Carmelo’s life was hockey, and after a bitter and public break up, all he wanted to do was focus on the game. 

Until he saw her.

The one that got away.

The one he thought he’d never see again.

For thirteen years, Stevie West drowned in her lackluster life. Recently divorced from her “roommate” with passionless benefits, she was ready to start over. On her own.

Until she ran into him. 

The same man she’d met one year ago.

The temptation that had finally given her the courage to find herself again. 

When lightning strikes twice, there’s no way to deny the chemistry it creates.

But with both of them still nursing old wounds, Mark and Stevie will have to find a way around the other’s defenses, a way to breakaway and score the one thing they never expected… love.

 

Amanda lives in Utah with her family where she moonlights as a nurse on the weekends.

If she’s not busy with her three munchkins, you’ll find her buried in a book or behind the keyboard where she explores the human experience through the written word.

She’s obsessed with all things Austen and Oreos, and loves to connect with readers!

His fingers, spread on my hips, slipped around to my stomach. I wanted to fight it. Wanted to step away from him. But the hum of my body wouldn’t allow it. He lowered his head, burying his nose into my neck. “You smell amazing.” Though my thighs quivered, I tried to remain indifferent. “It’s called sweat.” His body shook with laughter. “Well, then I’d like nothing more than to taste your sweat.” The thought of his lips on my neck sent a delicious shiver rocking through me. “Do lines like that normally work for you?” “Who said it’s a line?” His hands slipped under the hem of my shirt and coasted across my stomach. “God, you feel amazing.” “You’re a horny guy. Of course, I do.” He shook his head, his nose running along my jawline. “I may be horny, but you still feel right in my arms. I’m wondering how you’d feel beneath me.” I jerked away from his grasp, spinning to face him. “That.” I jammed my finger into his chest. “That right there is why this was a bad idea.” The traitorous hum of my body persisted as the lights flashed across his confused face. “It’s like you’re capable of being normal for like two minutes then you turn into an asshole. I don’t get it. And I’m over it.”

J. Nathan is the author of new adult and sports romances with cocky heroes and sassy heroines. When she’s not writing, she’s a total romance junkie! Add an alpha male who’s unlikable in the beginning…even better. She loves watermelon margaritas, guys in backward hats, country music, the summertime, and her amazing family and friends.

BLOG TOUR!!! ~ Playmaker by LP Dover

Title: Playmaker
Series: Breakaway #3
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 27, 2018



He knows every play in the book. But she’s calling the shots.

I’m Maddox Ledger, all-star winger and the reason the Charlotte Strikers killed it in the playoffs. Yeah, the tabloids like to call me arrogant. A real hothead. All I see is a guy who plays to win. Wreaking havoc on the ice, breaking a few hearts—that’s all just part of the game. And I’m sure as hell not sitting on the bench.

When my teammate asks me to be in his wedding party, I can’t refuse. Lucky for me, the bridesmaid I’m paired with is the definition of eye candy, but she’s so much more than that. Lacey Easton is totally irresistible and she makes me want to be a better man. A glimpse of bare shoulder takes me back to a steamy, two-week Vegas tryst I can’t forget. One I’m eager to repeat.

Suddenly our one-night stand is turning into the sequel. Still, Lacey’s keeping secrets. She doesn’t trust me. And maybe I deserve it. But I know more than she thinks I do and there’s no chance I’m letting her get away—or letting another guy take what is mine. This time, I’m playing for keeps.


“And we’ll be right back,” Maddox announced, grabbing my wrist.

He pulled me away, and I went willingly with him. I glanced back at Braeden and he started toward us, but I shook my head, stopping him midstep. Maddox turned the corner, his eyes burning like fire.

“I thought I could get through this, but I can’t. I’m so fucking tired of the lies. I know who you are, Lacey.”

My heart stopped. I pretended to be stupid. “Of course, you know who I am. Stop being silly. We need to get back to the wedding.”

He stepped closer, caging me against the wall, with his lips so close to mine. “No,” he growled low. “I mean, I know who you are . . . Paige.” Keeping his eyes on mine, he glided a hand down my bare back and reached inside my dress, circling his fingers around my strawberry birthmark. My whole body broke out in chills. “Did you seriously think I wouldn’t recognize you?”

“Took you long enough,” I snapped.

“Oh, I knew who you were right after you left me in Vegas.” My mouth dropped. “Yeah, that’s right, sunshine. A well-paid private investigator can find out anything.”

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L. P. Dover is a southern belle living in North Carolina with her husband and two beautiful girls. Before she began her literary journey she worked in periodontics, enjoying the wonderment of dental surgeries.
