The Non-Disclosure Agreement BOOK BLITZ and GIVEAWAY





Title: The Non-Disclosure Agreement 

By: Kelsey McKnight

Published by:
Limitless Publishing


Publication date: May 9th, 2017


Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

I left my old life, and my broken heart, back in Michigan. When I moved to New York City for a fresh start, I didn’t know I would be made a sinful offer I couldn’t refuse…

My billionaire businessman boss decided that being the most powerful man on the East Coast wasn’t enough. He needed political power, too. But who would vote for a womanizing playboy with a different model on his arm every week? If he wanted to win, he needed a respectable wife…he needed me.


I had the looks, the small town charm—I was even already his employee, but I was willing to pretend to be so much more. And I’ve already signed a non-disclosure agreement, making me the perfect choice.


But will there come a point where pretend just isn’t enough?





EXCERPT:

She stepped over to the security desk and dropped her license and proof of employment in front of the guard. Her hands were sweaty and she kept glancing nervously around the busy lobby. Everyone seemed to be in such a hurry. “Excuse me, sir, but I believe you have a badge for me? My name is Holly McIntyre and I just moved here from Michigan to work for Mr Cantrell. I’ve never been to New York City and—”


“Here’s your card, sweetheart,” the guard said in a thick Brooklyn accent, slapping a piece of plastic down on the desk. “And a word of advice? Don’t talk so much. You need to be tough to make it in this building.”

Holly nodded and meekly slid the ID off the counter before turning toward the elevators. She felt her cheeks burn with embarrassment and internally abashed herself for rambling to a perfect stranger. She was used to chatting with everyone back in Michigan and now she’d just made herself look like a fool to the first person she met in the building. What a great way to start to her first day.

The elevators were packed, going up, and Holly had to squeeze herself between two very large men carrying briefcases to make her way up to the top floor. As people left the lift to exit to their levels, Holly gave herself a short, meaningful pep talk to fill the time during the long ride up.


Okay, Holly, you can do this. You can make it through this. This is just a building in a city, not one of the most major companies on the East Coast for marketing and international sales. So what if it controls eighty percent of the sales to China? All you’ll be doing it fetching coffee and picking up dry-cleaning. No big deal! Maybe you’ll address envelopes sometimes or water plants. Totally doable! Fake it until you make it. Or crash and burn…oh, God.


When she stepped onto the top floor, she was the last person aboard the elevator and entirely sure she should never be a motivational speaker.

The seventieth floor was as white and bright as the lobby below, but primarily empty. A receptionist tapped away on a keyboard. Across from her desk was a bright red couch for visitors, and three heavy oak doors against the far wall. Holly quietly walked up to the receptionist, her ID card clutched in her hand. The woman was a statuesque brunette wearing a chic sweater dress and a pair of fifties-inspired glasses. She stopped typing and looked up at Holly from behind her vintage eyewear.

“H-hi, I’m Holly McIntyre, the new assistant.“ She cleared her throat and held up her ID for proof, hoping the receptionist wouldn’t notice the wild shaking of her hand.

“Lovely.” The receptionist purred in a way that made Holly think of a cat that’d just spotted a defenceless mouse. “Go on into Mr Cantrell’s office. Begin filing the papers on top of the filing cabinet in alphabetical order. He’ll be in shortly to give you further instruction.”

Holly waited to be dismissed but took the woman’s return to typing as her release. She walked back to the far wall to the three doors. One was labelled Meeting Room 1, the second Meeting Room 2, and the third read Cantrell in bold golden letters next to the door. Slowly, she grasped the handle and pushed the door open to let herself inside.

The room was large and richly furnished with a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows behind a stately desk. It was almost sterile-looking with no personal items to be seen between the imposing grandfather clock and leather armchairs. Holly looked around for a picture of her future boss, but the only art on the wall was a modern painting a man might’ve chosen—bright squares of red, blue, and black thrown onto a canvas. She thought a child could’ve put it together. It was nothing like the fine Italian frescos she’d seen online, nor like the famous reproductions of Monet paintings her parents had hanging in their restaurant back home. But what did she know about modern art? Holly had no doubt, however, that the simple piece had cost him thousands.

She placed her secondhand purse on one of the two guest chairs facing the desk and made her way to a very tall, large filing cabinet tucked into the corner of the room. Her hands began to sweat as she saw how monumental the cabinet was. While she

was around five feet tall, the cabinet must have been seven feet high. Wondering if she could actually do her duties with this monstrous piece of office furniture, she tried reaching the stack of papers and manila envelopes, but her hands barely grazed the top of the cabinet. She glanced around for a stepladder, or a stool, but only saw the expensive chairs meant for guests. Not finding any other option, she pulled the empty chair toward the cabinet and hopped on, balancing on the plush cushion.


She had just grabbed the heavy stack when the office door burst open, causing her arms to fly up in surprise and the papers to scatter all over the floor, mimicking the worst kind of snowstorm. Holly immediately jumped off the chair with her hand covering her mouth to stifle a small shriek of surprise that escaped as a pained squeak. She had not been in the office more than five minutes and she’d already made a mess. What made it worse was that the only person to witness her shame was her boss, Jackson Cantrell.

***

Jackson raised a brow as he inspected his new assistant. She seemed as flighty as a bird and almost as delicate.

“Oh, goodness! I’m so sorry, Mr Cantrell…sir…I can’t believe I…” Holly dropped back to the floor and began sweeping the papers into a pile with her quivering hands. “I’m sorry…I didn’t…I couldn’t reach…”

Jackson bent down to her level and began sorting the papers into small piles, slightly uncomfortable with the anxious woman fidgeting on his office floor. “I take it you must be my new assistant?”

“Y-yes. I’m Holly McIntyre.” She looked up at him, green eyes glassy with fear. “I promise, I’m not always so clumsy.”

He was taken aback upon seeing her fully. She was a pleasant-looking woman with a heart-shaped face and full lips. As she lifted her emerald eyes to his, peeking at him from beneath her thick lashes, Jackson had to clear his throat. “Good to meet you, Holly.”

“I’m really not like this. I’m very well organised and—”

Jackson held up a hand. “Please, it’s really not a big deal. Why don’t you just go get settled at your desk for now, and I’ll fix this.”

“My desk?” Her face was still pink from embarrassment; a feature Jackson found oddly endearing.

“Yes. Your office connects with mine so that I’ll be able to reach you easily during business hours.” He scooped the rest of the files up and stood, holding a hand out to her.

Holly smiled uneasily, showing off a row of perfectly white teeth. Her hand was delicate in his, and when she rose to standing, he was surprised to see she had rather shapely legs beneath the unflattering sack she wore. “Of course, Mr Cantrell. Is there anything I can get for you? Latte? Coffee? Tea?”

He shot her a small smile, amused by her nervousness. “No, thank you. Go get settled.”

Holly snatched her purse and tucked it under her arm, disappearing into her adjacent office. Jackson watched her leave, noting how that dowdy suit, and ugly shoes, did little to show her apparent charms. His other assistants were always well-groomed and expertly dressed, looking at ease in their designer clothes. Holly McIntyre almost

seemed like a little girl playing dress-up in her mother’s closet. He thought she would do better if she embraced her girl-next-door beauty instead of hiding it.


As he arranged the last of the files on his desk, he wondered if Holly had what it took to survive life in the big city.

BOOK BLITZ for HARD ROCK SIN by Athena Wright plus a GIVEAWAY!







Hard Rock Sin
Athena Wright
(Darkest Days, #3)


Publication date: May 2nd 2017


Genres: New Adult, Romance


Cameron Thorne has had a starring role in my fantasies for years.

But the sinfully hot rock star, known for his wild parties and lady killer reputation, is the bassist in my brother’s band. And I know my brother. He’ll kill Cameron if he looks at me twice.

Which means the two of us will never be more than friends.

Only… Cameron keeps staring at me like he wants to throw me on his bed. He keeps licking his lips like he’s thinking of tasting me.

Cameron wants me too.

We know there will be hell to pay. I’m his bandmate’s little sister. But neither of us can fight it.

This rock star god will do anything to keep me.





EXCERPT:

“Lily…” His voice was pained. “You don’t know how much I…” His eyes fell to my mouth. “…how much I wish you just were just a normal girl.”

All the air left the room.

“But this?” he continued. “This can’t happen.”

My heart sunk. I looked down, not meeting his eyes.

“I get it. I’m Noah’s baby sister. You can’t betray his trust.”

“It’s not just that,” he muttered. “I can’t fucking do this to you.”

“Do what to me, exactly?”

“You go speechless whenever you see me without a shirt,” he said with utter patience.

I flushed, understanding his meaning. “Oh. You mean, because I’ve never…?”

He gave me an almost wry smile. “Don’t you know your first time is supposed to be special?”

“Are you saying it wouldn’t be special with you?” I gave him my best teasing smile, trying not to waver. “And here I thought you prided yourself on pleasing the ladies.”

He shot me a look. “That’s different.”

I shifted closer, until I was practically pressed against him. “How is it different?”

“I’ve never—” He snapped his jaw closed, looking frustrated.

Understanding dawned on me. “Have you never been someone’s first before?”

“No.” He ran a hand through his sweat-dampened hair, looking exhausted. “At least, I don’t think I have.” He glanced down at where my hand rested on his chest. He traced the back of my hand with the tip of his finger. Heat radiated from that single point of contact, sending nervous excitement flooding through me. “And I’ve never…”

I leaned closer, bringing our faces closer together. “Never what?”

His eyes dropped to my lips again. I wet them unconsciously. He shut his eyes with a groan. When he opened them, they were full of fire.

“I’ve never wanted to be someone’s first before.” His eyes were still focused on my mouth.

“I want you to be mine,” I said softly. “I don’t want anyone else. I want it to be you.”

I mustered all the bravery I could. I wrapped my arms around his neck, until my breasts were pressed to his chest.

“I want you to teach me. I want you to teach me everything.”

“Fuck.” His eyes blazed. “I told you. Don’t say shit like that to me.”

“Or what?” I challenged. “What are you going to do?”

He placed his hands on my hips, thumbs rubbing the sensitive skin exposed between my tank top and skirt. A spike of heat hit my gut like a blow, nearly taking my breath away.

“This is such a bad fucking idea,” he murmured.

Pushing his hair away from his face with both hands, I met his blue eyes. They were burning with need. I stood on my tiptoes and leaned forward, until we were inches away.

“I want you, Cameron.”

I could practically sense the moment he snapped. The pupils of his eyes dilated, blowing wide open. Cameron let out a low grunt.

“Fuck it,” he growled.

He closed the gap and pressed his lips to mine.

Fireworks exploded across my vision.

MARRYING WINTERBORNE by Lisa Kleypas

I was so excited to read this book, especially after the fiasco that happened between Rhys and Helen in the first book of the series, Cold-Hearted Rake.

Lady Helen Ravenel has never dared to want anything out of life, especially after finding out the truth of her parentage. But now Helen wants Rhys, but the thing is, she has no idea how to handle any man, especially someone as worldly and handsome as Rhys, but Helen is determined to try. 

Rhys Winterborne was not born into the upper classes. Even with his vast wealth and influence, he is not accepted into polite society. In order to gain this, Rhys must marry a lady of high rank.

No woman stirs his blood as Helen does and with the advantage of her being the daughter of an Earl makes Helen perfect for him.  

Of course, there are sinister forces that fall in their path of a happily ever after, but the question is, could their marriage last, especially when Rhys learns of Helen's secret?

There is no secret that I love Lisa Kleypas. I love her books, I love her voice and any book I see with her name on it, I gobble them all up.  So when I got a taste of this book at the end of "Cold Hearted Rake" I was beside myself with glee.

Helen seems like such a mouse of a person, but beneath her calm manner is a will of steel. When Rhys demanded a kiss from her in "Cold Hearted Rake" it ended their engagement, but Helen did not want this and went after her man. 

His entire life, Rhys was treated like a nobody, even when he controls most of the upper class and they buy from his stores, they still look down their noses at him since he was not born into his position but had to "work" for it.

I must say, I absolutely loved Rhys from the first book and I'm sorry to say, I lost interest in the love story between Devon and Kathleen (even though it was a really sweet love story) and I just wanted to know what was going on between Rhys and Helen.

I was not disappointed and neither will you.  I know that I'm repeating myself a lot, but I can't help it. Especially since Helen falls in love with Rhys but is afraid to tell him her secret since it would mean him hating her and she can't deal with it.  But the sweet darling girl that she is, decides to tell him anyway with unexpecting results. 

The only downside of this book was that it was very easy to guess what Helen's secret was from the first book and the ending was kind of predictable.  Then again, you can't read as many Historical Romances as I have and not pick up on a few things over the years.

And the sneak peek into the next book brings me back to my favourite book of Lisa Kleypas and I am so excited for that.  I like how she keeps upping the excitement for each book.

COLD HEARTED RAKE by Lisa Kleypas

This book was so good and I loved it so much. +Lisa Kleypas never disappoints with any of her books.

Devon Ravenel has just inherited an earldom and while most men would be thrilled for the title, Devon was not one of them. His cousin fell from his horse and broke his neck and now Devon is saddled with a title he does not want. Along with three nieces and one widow. 

Since the estate is entitled and totally run-down, Devon can't sell it and wash his hands of it once and for all, so he has to buckle down and bring the place back to the glory that it once was.

Too bad he has his cousin's sharp tongue widow to deal with every step of the way. A widow who seems determined to act like the best grieving widow ever, considering she's only been married to his cousin for three weeks.

Cold Hearted Rake had me enthralled from the first page. Lisa Kleypas seem to have the magic touch when it comes to writing her books since most of her books are in my favourite top ten books of all time. 

Devon could have said to hell with all this and wash his hands of the estate, that's what his cousin seemed to have done, so why does he have to clean up his cousin's mess of neglecting his responsibilities? But Devon surprised himself by wanting to impress his new family, especially his cousin's enthralling widow Kathleen.

Kathleen is not a big fan of change. Her childhood has taught her that change is not good and with her husband dead and a new man moving into his home, that was too much change for her to handle.

It does not help matters that she and her husband's last day together did not leave her with warm feelings since they had a bad falling out right before he was thrown from his horse. Kathleen feels bad about this and blames herself for her husband's death and has vowed to do everything thing in her power to be a proper widow for her husband.

She was doing fine up until Devon crashed into her life and had her body come alive every time he was near or when she thinks about him, which was often. It did not help that he challenged her as no one ever has and he listens to what she has to say and seems to love to argue with her.  

Kathleen loves being around Devon, but he's a rake, can she trust him enough to give him her heart? Or should she just accept the way things are and keep mourning her husband as she vowed to do?

The arguments between Devona nd Kathleen were exciting to read. Devon has a dry sense of humour and Kathleen hits him back wit for wit. This book had a nice flow to it and I quite enjoyed how the story built up until it exploded. The fights, the guilt, the secrets. (sigh) This book was so good and I know that you will love it too.

This book also gave us a big picture of how the next book in the series "Marrying Winterborne" is going to be and I just can't wait. This series is so exciting!

Match Made: Bad Boys and Show Girls 
Amélie S. Duncan

(Love and Play, #2)


Publication date: April 10th 2017


Genres: Adult, Romance, Sports

In order to win his heart, she’ll have to play the game…

All over Broadway, my name is up in lights. From New York to London, the words ‘Gemma Sinclair’ are synonymous with up-and-coming fame, and a super-fast rise to success.

Yeah, well, super isn’t how I feel…

Between my deadbeat addict of an ex-boyfriend and the stress of my parents relying on me back home—sometimes I feel like the ground beneath my feet is slipping away.

Until I crossed paths with Knox Callahan, the hot and sexy as hell veteran player for the New York Football Club—and a total player when it comes to women. A year after our disastrous first date, I’m still in no position to have anything to do with a guy like him.

But then right at my lowest, here he comes, riding back into my life and offering me something I’ve been desperately longing for—support. And truth.

And, well, the truth is—now I can’t for the life of me remember why I didn’t want to be a part of his team…

Author’s Note: This is a standalone from the Love and Play Series. It’s HEA, No cheating friends-to-lovers contemporary romance with some sports, a loving alpha dominant male, strong female lead, and a little smut between the steam




EXCERPT:

“You didn’t sleep with him, did you, Gem?” Brooke said in a sleepy voice laced with undisguised disapproval the second I answered.

I snorted, though I wasn’t surprised at Brooke’s question. I had jumped into sex and asked questions later during the time she and I lived together. Sex made me feel better when I didn’t feel good. But later I felt empty. “No, I haven’t. I’m in the spare room.”

She sighed into the phone. “Good.”

“Who’s fucking?” I heard Dylan’s voice in the background.

“Private conversation here,” she grumbled back at him.

“No. I’m over at his house. I was drinking at Fuel, and he showed up,” I said, explaining a little of what was going on with Benjamin, leaving out the gambling, and my lack of funds.

“I thought you broke up a while ago?” she said confusion evident in her tone.

“We did. He disappeared for a while and then came back, and I made the mistake of giving him a second chance. He’s still on the lease,” I grumbled.

“Just tell the manager and move out,” she suggested.

“Yeah. I suppose I could,” I muttered. I could if I hadn’t moved in and been added to his lease. Since he’d practically cleared my bank account, I didn’t have the last, or first months’ rent, nor the security deposit that most places required up front. I couldn’t even afford a place of my own once he left. It had gone tits up, but that was for me to sort out.

“As for Knox,” she continued, “you don’t want to rebound with him. I hate to be selfish, but my wedding plans are at stake. The two of you sleeping together and it going bad could make for an awkward wedding day.”

“I’m not rebound hooking up with Knox. He offered to let me stay over tonight. That’s all. Your wedding is saved, Bridezilla,” I joked. Half-joked. Brooke was being a right fairy princess when it came to her wedding.

“Okay. That came out wrong,” she said apologetically. “I just don’t want you hurt. Knox likes the ladies. He’ll sleep with you, but it won’t go any further than that. He’s not boyfriend material.”

The phone muffled.

I heard Dylan’s voice faintly say, “I’ll go if you let me speak to her.”

“Dylan wants to speak to you,” she said. Her voice was strained.

“Alright,” I agreed. Dylan was fine. I didn’t mind his insight.

She switched the phone over to him. “Gemma. Ignore Brooke’s cock-blocking. Knox wouldn’t mind the rebound fuck. Trust me. He’s over that silly shit from that dinner. You go on. Just don’t be weird at the wedding and we’ll all be good.”

“No, that’s terrible advice, Dylan,” Brooke said once she was back. “She’s my friend, and I want her to find someone who wants a relationship.”

I sighed. Brooke was deliriously happy with Dylan, and I knew she wanted me to have the same. I agreed with her. I didn’t see how Knox and I would go together apart from sex. I wanted more than that for myself.

“Seriously,” she said. “If you’re a little interested in Knox…I know you just saw him again. But now that you have…”

“He’s surprisingly nice.” And gorgeous. Although annoyingly narrow-minded about a few drinks out. I hadn’t been off my head or anything.

“It all just came as a shock, him stepping in and carrying me away to his home.” I explained what happened.

“Dylan would have done the same. Some of the players are a bit out there. Nice could hold an ulterior motive.”

I laughed. It was Brooke’s way of saying “sleazy.”

“But they have good hearts. They’re very protective of and caring about each other’s families. If Knox hadn’t been there and Dylan had seen you, he’d have done the same thing. You know, since you’re not going to have sex, he could be a good friend in the city.”

I glanced over at the door. I had my doubts, though I told her, “Yeah. Maybe.”

VIRTUAL TOUR REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY for Crazy for You


It's always fun when friends turn into lovers, but what happens when honorary family members fall in love? 

This is the year for Emma Rush.  She's tired of being safe and wants to shake up her routine by trying new and daring things.  She started her experience off by taking part an obstacle course and even though she did not win, she still had a blast doing it.

Now Emma wants something more, something that she has been reading about for years in books. Emma wants to have a fiery passion love affair with a guy.  And not just any guys, she wants a bad boy, she wants Ryan Blake.

Ryan Blake understands lost.  He lost his mother, brother and best friend in only a couple of years and losing Emma would be too much to handle.

Ryan sees the way she looks at him, and he's determined not to go there with Emma, especially since she deserves a guy who is not a screw-up like him.  Plus, there's also the promise Ryan made to Emma's brother about not touching his sister.

His plan of not getting involved with Emma is in major jeopardy since he can't seem to get her out his mind ever since he came back to town.  The little girl who he considered a sister for many years has now turned into this sexy bombshell whose every gesture turned him on.

Can he keep his promise to his friend and not touch his sister?  Or would he give in to the passion that threatens to consume them both? 

Of course, we all know that they give into the passion in the end, but it's always fun to read how they give in and it was super fun to see Ryan struggle until he got blue balls.  Emma is adorable and has experienced so much loss at such a tender age. I love the two of them together and I saw the spark between these two in the first book, Run to You.

This book was subtle and sweet, and not the explosion of content that I thought it would be.  I was expecting more drama and chemistry between Ryan and Emma.  What I mean is, it felt like their passion was more explained than felt in this book. 

This is rare for me since I rarely like books that explain passion, but this book was not one of them.  Emma and Ryan went through so many stages of their lives together, it was believable relationship from beginning to end. 

I look forward to the next book in the series and I know you guys would go out and read the first book and this one since I promise that you won't regret it.
