Four Day Fling, an all-new hilarious and romantic standalone from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Emma Hart is available NOW!

FOURDAYFLING3

Imagine this.

You’re ready to leave after a one-night stand, and you’re figuring out how to—shock horror—leave your number and ask him to be your fake boyfriend for your sister’s wedding this weekend.

When he wakes up.

Well, that happened to me. And over coffee and omelets, I found myself a date.

Which was how I ended up arriving at the wedding with a guy I knew nothing about.

I didn’t know his last name, or how we met, or how long we’d been dating. I didn’t know where he grew up, what he’d majored in in college, or how many siblings he had.

I sure as hell didn’t know he was Adam Winters, hotshot hockey player, and not only my father’s favorite player, but my little nephew’s freakin’ idol.

Which means I’m in trouble. Big, big trouble.

My mother is suspicious, my sister is bridezilla on crack, and my grandpa will tell anyone who’ll listen about his time in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.

Four days.

I have to keep this up for four days, and then Adam and I can return to our regular lives, where we don’t have sex whenever we’re alone, and my family aren’t interrogating him over his intentions with me.

At least, that’s the plan.

And we all know what happens to those.

Excerpt:

“Ready?” Adam strolled out of the bedroom, playing with the button on his shorts.“For lunch with my mother?” I turned and stared at him, expressionless. “I’m thrilled.”He laughed and adjusted the short sleeve of his white shirt. “It’s what—an hour? Then she’ll be back snapping at your sister’s ankles. Surely you can give Rosie a break for sixty whole minutes.”

“Oh no. I’ve done that guilt trip my entire life. I’m not getting it from my fake boyfriend, too.” I waggled my finger at him before turning back to the mirror to finish my make-up. “And yes, I can give her a break, but it doesn’t mean I need to be happy about it.”

“Do you ever get along?”

“Yes. When I’m in Orlando and she’s in Key West.”

“I mean when you’re together.”

“In the same room together, or having a conversation together?”

“Now you’re just being awkward, Red.”

I brushed a final stroke of mascara over each of my eyes, then stopped, wand in hand, and met his eyes in the reflection of the mirror. “Given how you ended up here, I would have thought you knew that awkward was my default mode.”

“That was cute-awkward. This is attitude-awkward.”

“How do you know there’s a difference?”

He pointed at himself. “Four sisters. I grew up with attitude-awkward. I could recognize it blindfolded with hands cuffed behind my back from two hundred miles away.”

“Wow. Someone’s cocky.”

“I thought we established that the night we met.”

My cheeks flushed. Damn it. Why did I have to blush like an idiot? Oh, that’s right. I was a redhead and so pale I was a distant relative of Casper the Friendly Ghost, which meant you could see my blushing a mile off.

“You’re adorable when you blush.” Adam grinned.

“Thank God,” I drawled. “That was my life goal. Be adorable. Now, I can get it in neon lights over my bed.”

Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KFF

This is my first book by the author and I was pleasantly surprised with her writing style. I really enjoyed this contemporary standalone romantic comedy with eccentric and lovable characters.

Poppy, a waitress at a local diner met Adam at a bar when on a night out with her best friend Avery. Poppy is a fiery-tempered, sassy redhead, as clumsy as one can get with a self-deprecating sense of humour. Her supposedly one night stand with Adam ended her asking him to be her date for her sister’s wedding weekend. It is when Adam gets to meet her family that everything goes very interesting.

One thing that attracted Adam to Poppy was her brutal honesty and her hilarious wit. He wasn’t exactly straightforward with who he was when he agreed to their pretend fling. There is something about Poppy that makes him agree to whatever she asked of him including their deal. Surely nothing can go wrong with the “special friends” with benefits kind of arrangement, can it?

When I read this book, I didn’t look much into the author’s style so I sort of jumped in blind. This light-hearted love story gives you almost everything: a handsome and dashing sports hero in Adam, a funny, clumsy and gorgeous Poppy and her totally unconventional family members, especially Grandpa.

“Why do you keep calling me sir? I’m not a knight.”

“I was just being polite,” Adam said.

Grandpa barked a laugh and pointed at him. “I know! I’m fucking with you!”

This funny story of a one night stand turned into a weekend fling is filled with witty banter between the characters and hilarious situations, an angst-free tale that makes this book one of the best romcoms I’ve read.  The fast-paced storyline is in sync with the strong and memorable comedic protagonists. Poppy and Adam’s off the charts chemistry is combustible enough to melt your knickers. Will they make it as a pretend couple during the weekend without the family finding out? What happens after the weekend is over? If you are in a book funk and you need something to cheer you up, Adam and Poppy’s story is the perfect therapy.

Reviewed by Tracey Lou on behalf of KFF

What can I say about Barclay Hammond? Gorgeous, impeccably suited and booted, ruthless, rude and an arrogant playboy, just how I like my male characters.

Contessa Holly, or as she is known, Tessa, arrives from a small southern town to the big and bright lights of New York City. She has one week to find a job. She brings determination and a whole lot of sassiness with her. I like her already! 🙂

Their paths cross unexpectedly but the encounter leaves a lasting impression on them both. Tessa is young beautiful and inexperienced and that is a fact that doesn’t go unnoticed by Barclay. Still, it doesn’t deter him. It was fate that Tessa was looking for a job and Barclays company Hammond press was hiring. Only there was going to be a big surprise for the two of them.

This was the start of a beautiful love story. It wasn’t going to be straightforward but then, when is it ever? He knew he couldn’t be with her, yet he didn’t want her to be with anyone else. Jealousy was a trait that reared its ugly head more than once in this story. They were fighting a losing battle as they both succumbed to their feelings.

Unbeknownst to Barclay, Tessa was offered a job with his company, what she didn’t know was that there was a rule about interoffice relationships.

“If you want to date someone here at Hammond, they have to be on the same level as you. Your equal.” Which left her with a dilemma. Will she choose her dream job or will she choose Barclay? Will they get their happy ever after?

This is the first time I’ve read a book by this author and I thoroughly enjoyed Bossy Nights. As soon as I started it, I couldn’t put it down. The story flowed throughout, and both characters were likable. Personally, I felt the ending was a little rushed, but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this book to fellow readers and friends. How else would they know how things end if they don’t one-click? I look forward to reading more of her work.

EXCERPT


Stella Lilith used to have an adventurous side, but I think it’s been a while since she broke a few rules. “Will you climb out first?”
There’s my girl. “Yep.” I press down on the sink, hoping it doesn’t fall off the wall. It looks old, so I’m not sure it can hold my weight. But it’s getting louder in the hall, so I climb up, grabbing an exposed pipe above the window, and maneuver my legs through the opening. Good thing we’re on the ground level. Pushing off, I land on my feet in the alley and turn around. “Stella?”She peeks out and by the way her lips are twisted and her eyes are looking at the cement, she’s nervous. “I don’t want to fall.”“I’d never let you. Not to the ground anyhow.”For a second, she looks confused, but her brow relaxes and a small smile appears. “You’ll catch me?”“Every time.”She disappears, and I can hear her climbing onto the sink. Her legs slide out the window until her ass rests on the metal sill. “Ready for me, Rivers?”

“All my life.”

“For real,” she says, her nerves causing a slight shake to her tone. “You’re going to catch me, right?”

“Always.” I take her by the ass, and say, “Put your legs over my shoulders.”

“What? No.”

“Yes. I’ve got you. Then all I have to do is back up as you slip out.”

“I’m not as light as I used to be. Are you sure you can handle me?”

I work my way under her so her legs are over my shoulders. “Don’t worry about me, baby. I can handle you all right.”

Her thighs squeeze my neck. I like to think it was the name I slipped in there, but it’s probably because she’s anxious to do this. She slips out a little more, and our eyes meet. “You’re sure you’re ready?”

“All you have to do is let go. I have you.”

Releasing the pipe, she ducks her head to the side while I support her back with my hands, holding her until she clears the glass. Helping her upright, my face is against the jeans that cover her vagina and she’s squeezing my head with her legs so tight I don’t know if I’m going to live. What a sweet fucking way to die.

4.5 Stars ~ Reviewed by Anna Green on behalf of KFF

Finally, we get to know Stella’s story. For those of you who haven’t read The Razer Series yet, it’s best to start on the first book, Calling Time; that way you don’t get lost in this tale. When I heard that the author was going to write a book about Stella, I sort of dreaded it because Stella is probably one of the most screwed up female antagonists I have read in a book in a long time.

This book picks up right after Stella and Lucca’s son, Ayden, was recovering from the horrific mess that resulted in the death of his best friend. There is a new character that was introduced in this book, Tony, a private investigator hired by Lucca to keep an eye on Stella. The impending marriage of Lucca and Laura draws Stella back into their lives and stirs up trouble. The witch with a capital B soon starts brewing strife in her cauldron of evil!

I must admit this author’s writing style is what I liked the most. This book is narrated from different points of view, mostly by Stella and the rest by the other significant characters involved in the series. Fast-paced and full of suspense, one can hardly keep up with the roller coaster of emotions this book draws out from the reader. I thought I’d be more sympathetic to Stella if I learned her history, but sadly I just wasn’t being honest. Some authors would have created a backstory for Stella that might elicit a lot of sympathy from the readers which would be predictable, but I am glad to find out that it’s not in this case. Stella is what she is. Her background is no excuse for the life-changing decisions she made, she is just plain evil in my opinion. Maybe there was a point or two where I felt a little sorry for her, but only a teeny-weeny bit. Stella is that woman everybody loves to hate and this book doesn’t disappoint, you’ll love it!

ONE-CLICK CALLING TIME (Book One) TODAY!

Life can change in a split second, a minute moment, an infinite hour.

For Laura Hamilton, her split second lasted 2,880 minutes. 48 hours to be exact. She barely escaped with her life. With a body full of scars and a heart full of hurt, the twenty-nine-year old clothes designer spent the following eight years clouded with grief, believing herself to be too broken to ever see the beauty in her surroundings again.

After a last-ditch attempt to scrape some semblance of her pieces together goes disastrously wrong, Laura’s pushed pin guides her to the sleepy village of Beaufort. No longer content to hide behind her sister, or languish in the depths of her sorrow, she finds a measure of peace among paranoia and fear, carving out an existence she is almost comfortable with.

Laura inadvertently catches the eye of the enigmatic hotelier and newcomer, Lucca Rinaldi. For the first time, her heart begins the slow trip towards letting another man into her life. Passion and pain go hand in hand when the couple finally meet.

Little does she know that Lucca’s history is not so far in the past as he thinks. His troubled affairs follow hot on his heels, bringing scorn and hate back into her fold. When their pasts collide with explosive consequences, Laura’s bitter memories threaten to pull her under when a walking nightmare crashes back into her life, bringing terror along for the ride.
The seconds are counting down – but who gets to call time?

*Please note – suitable for 18+ only due to adult/graphic themes and possible trigger content.

Blurb

The first time I met Ian Kemp in the sparkling blue waters of St. Thomas, I was six years old and we shared a summer beneath the stars.
The second time I met Ian Kemp, he was a shell of the boy I once knew. Turbulent and infuriating, he refused my friendship at every turn. Like me, he was a casualty of life’s cruelty, but we were planets apart.
We’d both sought refuge on the island, hoping to find our anchor. Instead, we found each other and managed to reclaim our stars…until we both got swept away.

 

EXCERPT

Thwack.
Thwack.
Thwack.“Fack!” It was another one of the hundreds of curses that erupted from the Kemp kitchen.With wide eyes, I watched the wood fly across the porch and onto the sand and heard another loud crash as I stalked the house next door with my phone pressed to my ear.“So how is my son?” His mother asked as I saw more of Rowan Kemp’s kitchen fly over the railing, off the porch, and into the sand. “Is he adjusting well?”“Damnit! Oh, fack your motha,” Ian’s voice rang out in frustration. Giggling, I covered the mouthpiece of the phone as another cabinet door hit the sand. He’d been at it for a few hours. It started with an explosive phone call that I managed to avoid mostly due to my taking cover in the shower and ended with a bang.

“He… is. It looks like he’s remodeling the kitchen.”

In a flash, Ian stood on the porch only in shorts, his chest heaving, a bottle of the red in his hand. He studied the wood in the sand before he glanced at my house. I ducked out of his line of sight and answered her before more banging started. “He’s fine.”

“Oh, that’s wonderful news. Maybe you could put him on the phone?”

More growling ensued and then a clear, “Damn you! EISH!”

“Well, at the moment, I think it would be impossible, he’s in the midst of demolition.”

I cringed at the ripping sound and poked my head out of my screen door just as he hurled more wood over the railing.

“You know he’s always been so good at things like that. He built his father a beautiful bookshelf for his study.”

“That’s wonderful,” I said, as Ian unloaded an entire can of lighter fluid on the discarded wood. I raced around the bottom floor of my house and collected every fire extinguisher I had before I sat them next to my front door. Seconds later I heard the whoosh of the wood go up in flames. The rising inferno seemed to fuel him as he added more of his mother’s kitchen to it piece by piece.

Rowan went on, speaking of her pride and joy. “From boy scouts all the way through college, my boy excelled at everything he did. Honor student, swimming, tennis. I had to beat the women away with a stick.”

Ian chose that moment to snap another cabinet door in half over his knee and used his empty wine bottle to bat it into the burning pile.

“You don’t say.”

“Oh, yes, he was such a ladies’ man before he met Tara, his ex-wife.”

Only mildly prepared, I walked out onto my porch at the same time Ian returned to it. He had several photo books in his hand. Rowan whispered in my ear as if he could hear her. “I was never really that fond of her, she seemed a little cold compared to his warmth.”

Ian pulled pictures from the books and began to burn them one by one. Something in my chest split as he walked around Rowan Kemp’s burning kitchen cabinets, tossing away what I was sure were irreplaceable pictures.

He had lost his shit. It was, without a doubt, Ian’s doomsday.

“Don’t!” I screamed from where I stood.

Ian ignored me as he tossed an entire book into the fire before shaking another so that the pictures fed the flames.

“Koti? What is it?” Rowan said anxiously on the phone.

“Oh nothing, I was just…”

“Is everything okay?”

“Oh, fine,” I said, as I paced the porch watching her son destroy his mother’s memories. He must have found the pictures in the linen closet. The Kemps had very few of their own things in the house.

“Rowan, I’m going to ask him if he needs any help.”

“Okay,” she said hesitantly. “But please ask him to ring me.”

“Will do.” I was already running toward the small bonfire just as Ian tossed another picture into it.

“What are you doing!?”

“Privacy,” he said through thick lips. “That’s all I asked for.”

“Kind of hard to ignore you, Ian. Since you’ve gone all Tom Hanks Castaway—me man, me make fire!” I reached for the picture in his hand as he tossed it in. I watched it burn. It was a shot of a woman in her wedding dress who I assumed was Tara. She looked beautiful as she smiled at her groom. I was only able to admire Ian in a well-fitted tux for seconds before the fire engulfed the photo.

Jesus, what could have happened?

“Ian, if you want to talk about it…”

He picked up another book and took a few pictures out shoving them into his pocket before he tossed it into the pile.

“Leave.”

“Please stop. You don’t understand what you’re doing.”

Blazing eyes scoured me before he looked back at the fire. “I know exactly what the fuck I’m doing.”

Sweat pooled on his forehead. He was covered in splintered wood. Ian Kemp had cracked, and he wasn’t coming back until he was ready.

Way too far into his headspace, he ignored me standing next to him.

I walked back to my house and watched him dismantle years of memories as he stared at the fire until it went out.

And then the house next to mine went completely quiet.

COVER REVEAL ~ LOVE ONLINE by Penelope Ward

RELEASE DATE: Monday, August 27, 2018

 

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.

Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary.

Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.

From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.

She was an addiction.

At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.

Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman.

But I couldn’t really have her.

I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.

So I took a chance.

And that was when our love story really began.

Keep an eye open for a special excerpt sneak peek of Love Online on August 22nd!
