Blog Tour Enough Time by Alexis Riddley

Title: Enough Time: Truth.Redemption.Trust
Author: Alexis Riddley
Genre: Dark Erotic Thriller
Alexis's Muse: Marshall Arkley
Cover Designer: Tiffany Huegele
Release Date: October 13, 2015

I was raw, exposed like a nerve with no protection from the present, nor the horror of my past. Winston West was a man I no longer knew. He was an illusion, an enigma of a life that I once led. So how was I alive? Oxygen was inhaled, life sustained, but I was dead inside. Such a cliche.
To the outside world I was strong, confident, determined. But when you got close, and really looked at the man in front of you, that’s when the ugly showed itself. The demons of my past played over and over in my head. I saw the world through jaded eyes.
Life with Charlie was bright, vibrant. Moments and memories existed in technicolor. That was gone. An epic sequence of events which ended in a collision of fantasy and reality. I couldn’t even say her name; that was too real, too painful. I had made her a vow, a promise and I was struggling to keep it. No more lies, no more secrets.
I thought the sins of the past were buried deep. That they would never resurface. I was dead wrong. One phone call, one insignificant event in a life so off course, begins to shatter what sanity I had left.
I was prepared to give up. Chalk my life up to a mistake of biblical proportions when she appears. I didn’t want to like her, let alone need her. Funny thing is, I wasn’t the only one harboring secrets. Could I become the person I needed to be, that she deserved? Was I even worthy of redemption?
What she offered to me was something I never thought I deserved.

The twists keep coming. What can I say about this book but OMG! If you have read book 1 then get ready for another emotional roller coaster journey full of twists, turns, setbacks, achievements, and forgiveness. Enough Time is a very emotional second chances love story with a bit of darkness. The end of book 1 "Enough Secrets" completely wrecked me. So I was so happy for a continuation to Winston's story. I was really impressed with the plot and how well written this story is... 

They say time heals all wounds that every day it gets easier and easier, and eventually you would get over her. Well, whoever said that could kiss my ass. You never get over a love like ours, and it hadn’t gotten any easier. 

I felt so emotionally invested in Winston my heart was crying for him. Winston West life has unraveled in the worst ways. He is merely existing. He has lost everything. His wife, his business, all from the hands of who he thought was his best friend. 

All the years I was afraid of the pain letting go of the past might bring. But this, this moment of helplessness and loss...this was true pain. Before I was scared, now I was lost. 

I absolutely adored Kacie Reese, she is bold, smart, funny and beautiful. She challenges Winston at every turn, but he keeps pushing her away. 

This has been an truly amazing read. 

It's always so exciting for me to discover a new author to add to my list of favorites and Alexis Riddley is definitely one of them.

Release Blitz - Rhapsody by Ayden K. Morgen

Title: Rhapsody (The Teplo Trilogy #2)
Author: Ayden K. Morgen 
Genre: Erotic Romance Suspense
Cover Designer: Mayhem Cover Creations
Release Date: October 19, 2015

After Anton Vetrov brutally murders a young girl as a warning to Tristan Riley, the broken DEA agent believes the best thing for Lillian Maddox to do would be to stay far, far away from him. But Lillian knows a thing or two about fear, and she's not willing to let the man she loves push her away that easily. If he won't fight for them, she will... even if that means risking her life to prove she's strong enough to live in his world.

Her plan ends in disaster when she's dragged out of Teplo at gunpoint, forcing Tristan onto a collision course with the Vetrov family and Pedro Francisco. With nothing left to lose except the only woman who has ever mattered to him, he will do whatever it takes to stop Vetrov and Francisco from ever hurting her again.

But he doesn't know they've been waiting for him to make his move. When he does, all hell breaks loose, and his life is on the line. It's up to Lillian and the DEA to save him, and she's terrified they won't make it in time.

Thrust headlong into a violent, bloody confrontation with the Vetrov family, Lillian comes face to the face with the heartbreaking realization that maybe she doesn't belong in Tristan's world, after all. When the smoke clears, will he be able to convince his ballerina that she's the best thing for him, or will he lose her and the chance at a real future once and for all?

"Hey," he whispered, leaning back against the counter.

She didn't hesitate before walking straight to him.

His right arm went around her, gathering her close as that same strange twisting sensation hit him right in the heart. She rested her head against his chest, humming her contentment. She felt so good in his arms, warm and soft. He pressed his lips to her forehead, breathing her in. She smelled like sin, like him and her and lilacs.

"How'd you sleep, beautiful?" he asked.

"Good. I always sleep so well with you."

"Good." A pleased rumble started in his chest. He pressed his lips to her forehead again, and then her temple. "I like having you in my bed."

"Me too."

Jason cleared his throat, reminding Tristan he was still on the line. "I'll let you go, man. See you tonight?"

"Yeah, later." Tristan set his phone on the counter and tilted Lillian's face up to his, kissing her deeply. She tasted like mint and sugar, so sweet. When they were both breathing heavily, he broke the kiss and led her to the table before settling her into a chair.

Her blush deepened as her eyes flickered to the table and then back to him, no doubt remembering what they'd done there a few short hours ago.

He couldn't help the smile tugging at the corners of his lips as he remembered too. The feel of her gripping him, the way she cried out for him, gasping that she loved him. The look in her eyes when she'd demanded he take her…. His cock hardened at the memory of her commanding him to give her what she wanted. Christ, he'd never get enough of her.

"You hungry?" he asked, backing away before he lifted her up onto the tabletop and had her for breakfast.

"Starving," she whispered, desire turning her eyes to hazel flames. She bit her lip, her gaze roving shamelessly up and down his body.

"Behave," he growled, swiping his thumb across her bottom lip, "or I'll bend you over the table and make you scream my name again."

Will Patience overcome her insecurities? And will Abel ever convince her to trust him again?

“Their writing is steamy, ridiculously funny, and highly entertaining, yet also insightful and observant. I have loved each book in the Paradise series...” ~ Books and Binding
“I LOVED this book. The characters of Patience (maybe by name but definitely NOT by nature) and Abel had me crying with laughter at times throughout this book. And Patience's one liners and insults to Abel were just fabulous.”~ Goodreads Reviewer
“Give me ten minutes to audition for you and I’ll change your mind. I promise you’ll want the entire performance after you see what I can offer,” he whispered provocatively, trailing one lean hand up and down the curve of her waist.
“I don’t do reruns. I’m strictly a one penis, one performance kind of girl,” she muttered as much to remind herself of that harsh fact as to share it with him. “You should understand, I learned that lesson from watching you. Don’t go back.  Ever. It’s in the Abel Turner playbook.” She lifted her face to his, her eyes challenging him to fault her logic. Or break his own rules.
“Patience, this isn’t going to be a repeat for either of us. This is a whole new show,” Abel declared, his hand sliding back to her ass and pulling her closer to him.
“Same pretentious penis, same pompous play, Abel,” Patience returned dismissively, fighting the pull she felt toward him with every fiber of her being. “I’ve seen this episode; believe me, it will end in tears. Yours.”
“Thank God I’m not a man lacking self-confidence, Hellion. Otherwise, you’d be hell on my ego,” Abel groaned, burying his face in the crook of her neck while one arm contracted around her waist, holding her tightly.  
“Oh, no. Your self-confidence is unmatched,” Patience muttered, still squirming between his hard body and the wall. “It’s your self-control that needs work.” Lifting her eyes to Abel’s she narrowed her eyes to slits. “You’re not getting this, Abel, and you really need to get me here. Since all the blood in your body seems to have gotten diverted to your dick, I’m gonna speak real slow and in terms that even Dr. Seuss could understand, okay?”
Waiting for a second, she watched one perfectly shaped eyebrow lift on his handsome face in silent askance. “I will not fuck you in the hall. I will not fuck you against this wall. You should really be a better learner. I will not fuck you, Abel Turner.”
