About CHASING IMPOSSIBLE:   


Tough and independent, 17-year-old Abby lets very few people into her inner circle. It’s common knowledge in her Kentucky town that she deals drugs, but not even her closest friends know why. But when a deal goes south and Abby’s suddenly in danger, she finds herself reluctantly forced to lean on daredevil Logan—a boy whose restless spirit matches her own.

Logan has his own reasons for wanting to keep Abby at arms’ length. But he never expected to find in her the one person who might help him face the demons he’s tried so hard to run from.

Together, Abby and Logan will have to make a decision: let their current circumstances weigh them down forever…or fight for the future they both thought was impossible.

Chasing Impossible - RDL Teaser 1

 

EXCERPT: 

Abby 


People near the stage scream and clap and I’m about ready to throw my cell against the wall. Stupid, stupid boy and stupid me for stupidly somewhat liking him and him thinking he can get away with not answering me. 

“Give it up for our boy Logan.” 

My eyes rip up, go for the stage, and my mind shifts into reverse, fast-forward, rewind, and then that smile that’s associated with the devil slides across my face. 

Logan stands strong on the stage. Guitar strapped across his chest. Baseball cap backwards on his black hair. And when he strikes the strings of the guitar, those biceps flex beautifully. 

That chord just struck a lot deeper than anyone could have imagined. Past my bones, past my muscles, and it’s created a nice warmth that’s curling around my belly. Liquid warmth. 

The logical part of my brain demands that I walk away, but he’s the one that scared me by not answering back. He’s the one that’s causing all these alien emotions stirring in my veins. 

Yeah, I shouldn’t kiss Logan. I should definitely leave a boy like that alone. But he returned and he’s the one that climbed onto the stage and is looking addictively sexy with that guitar. 

Yep, shouldn’t kiss him, but I already told Rachel, I’m going to kiss the guitarist tonight. Wouldn’t want that one to be a lie, now, would I?

Excerpt:


"How about twenty questions?" I ask. 

"I hate twenty questions." 

"How about five questions, then?" 

He cracks a smile and lifts an eyebrow. "How about three?" 

"Deal!" 

"So, have I mentioned how much I fucking hate Tuesdays?" Brandi's voice cuts right between us. Xander looks relieved. 

Me? Not so much. "Damn it, Brandi!" 

"What?" 

"Oh nothing. Can you grab me Fireball though? Pretty please. Two of them." I look at Xander. "You're taking one." 

"Three. I am too, bitch! Fuck Tuesdays!" Brandi calls out from across the bar as she begins filling the shot glasses from the Fireball chiller. 

"Question one. You said you’ve been traveling for a while now, right? Do you ever get tired of it? Ever feel like settling?” 

"Damn. Starting out with the heavy hitters, huh?" He eyes the shot glasses as if hoping it will somehow make them fill faster.  

"Need me to go easier on you? Maybe a finger or two first before I go in with the whole fist?" 

He looks at me in disbelief. "Did you really just say that?" 

"Just answer the question, two fingers or three?"

GR's Summary:


It’s time for more men and motorcycles in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Reaper’s Fall...

The club comes first. 

I’ve lived by those words my whole life—assumed I’d die by them, too, and I never had a problem with that. My Reaper brothers took my back and I took theirs and it was enough. Then I met her. Tinker Garrett. She’s beautiful, she’s loyal, and she works so damned hard it scares me sometimes . . . She deserves a good man—one better than me. I can’t take her yet because the club still needs me. There’s another woman, another job, another fight just ahead. 

Now she’ll learn I’ve been lying to her all along. None of it’s real. Not my name, not my job, not even the clothes I wear. She thinks I’m nice. She pretends we’re just friends, that I’ve still got a soul . . . Mine’s been dead for years. Now I’m on fire for this woman, and a man can only burn for so long before he destroys everything around him.

I’m coming for you, Tinker. 

Soon.

My Thoughts:

The Reapers MC Series delivers every time!  I can't sing this series enough praises!  Joanna Wylde writes entertaining, suspenseful, thrilling, and erotic romance!!!  

In Reaper's Fire, we get Gage and Tinker's story told through their alternating point of views.  We got an alluring introduction to their story in Reaper's Fall, and I was excited to dive into what promised to be another great addition in to the Reapers MC Series.

The story begins with a devastating life event that leads Tinker to take steps to end her long-term marriage.  She leaves Seattle for her hometown of Hallies Falls when her father's health takes a turn for the worse.  As she is running her family's apartment building, she finds herself in need of a handyman.

Gage has volunteered to go undercover in Hallies Falls, so that he can infiltrate the local MC, which they believe is skimming profits off the top from the Reapers MC. Unfortunately, in order to get close to the MC, Gage has to form a false identity, and get an introduction by being with Talia Jackson, the head of the MC's sister.  He becomes Tinker's handyman, and rents an apartment from her.  As these two spend time together, they find themselves falling for each other.  Unfortunately, secrets, lies, and danger are obstacles that stand in their way....

Reaper's Fire was one sexy and wild ride!  The chemistry between Gage and Tinker was explosive.  Every interaction between these two characters was an aphrodisiac.  Add in the suspense and danger of MC Club life, excellent primary and secondary characters, and you have a winning combo for a great story.   

My Rating:

I give, Reaper's Fire, by Joanna Wylde, 4 Intense, Sexy, Passionate, Heart-Pounding Stars!!!  If you enjoy MC Club Romance, the Reapers MC Series needs to be at the top of your TBR list!

GR's Summary:

This electric cross-country thriller follows the game of cat and mouse between a girl on the run from a murder she witnessed—or committed? —and the boy who's sent to kill her. 

Nicolette Holland is the girl everyone likes. Up for adventure. Loyal to a fault. And she's pretty sure she can get away with anything...until a young woman is brutally murdered in the woods near Nicolette's house. Which is why she has to disappear. 

Jack Manx has always been the stand-up guy with the killer last name. But straight A's and athletic trophies can't make people forget that his father was a hit man and his brother is doing time for armed assault. Just when Jack is about to graduate from his Las Vegas high school and head east for college, his brother pulls him into the family business with inescapable instructions: find this ruthless Nicolette Holland and get rid of her. Or else Jack and everyone he loves will pay the price. 

As Nicolette and Jack race to outsmart each other, tensions—and attractions—run high. Told in alternating voices, this tightly plotted mystery and tense love story challenges our assumptions about right and wrong, guilt and innocence, truth and lies. 



Thank you for stopping by the How to Disappear Blog Tour! You can follow the rest of the Blog Tour HERE



My Thoughts:

How to Disappear leads readers on a dark and twisted winding road of suspense, danger, deceit and thrills.  This is a story that begins with a ton of mystery and illuminates the plot by giving us one puzzle piece at a time.  As readers we are in the dark, biting our nails, and waiting impatiently anticipating the next climatic revelation.   

The main character, Nicolette Holland, is on the run.  She needs to completely disappear, and to do this, must frequently change her appearance, name, job, and location.  Jack Manx has been put in a horrible position by his criminal and sadistic older brother.  He has been told that Nicolette killed their mutual friend, and he must hunt her down and kill her, or face the consequences of some extremely dangerous killers.  As readers, we are in the dark, and do not know if Nicolette is innocent or guilty.  Did she commit murder, or did she witness something that she wasn't suppose to see?

When Nicolette and Jack meet one another, the attraction and amicability that they find with one another complicates matters.  Will Jack kill Nicolette?  Will she figure out his true identity before it is too late?  This is a story that makes readers think, and gives us an endless array of questions from beginning to end... 

If you enjoy a suspense filled mystery, that constantly has you guessing and questioning the main characters next moves, you need to read, How to Disappear.  Add in a small bit of romance, and a fast-paced addicting plot to the mix, and you have the ingredients for a great story!

Add to Goodreads

Synopsis:

Seduction has never been so sweet! The New York Times bestselling author of the Cold Fury series—Alex, Garrett, Zack, and Ryker—returns with the first novel in a hot new trilogy. 

Sela Halstead lost her innocence in a way that no sixteen-year-old should ever have to endure. She’s spent years trying to forget that night even while wondering about the identities of the monsters who brutalized her—until a telltale tattoo flashes across Sela’s TV screen. The incriminating ink belongs to Jonathon Townsend, the millionaire founder of The Sugar Bowl, a website that matches rich older men with impressionable young women. Obsessed with revenge, Sela infiltrates Townsend’s world, only to come face-to-face with a tantalizing complication: Beckett North, his charismatic business partner. 

The tech mastermind behind The Sugar Bowl, Beck always gets what he wants, in business and in bed. And yet, for a man who’s done every dirty thing imaginable, there’s something about the na├»ve, fresh-faced Sela that sparks his hottest fantasies. Because with her, it’s not just about sex. Beck opens up to her in ways he never has with other girls. So why does he get the feeling that she’s hiding something? In a world of pleasure and power, the shocking truth could turn them against each other—or bind them forever. 

Note: Sugar Daddy ends on a cliffhanger. Sela and Beck’s story continues in Sugar Rush and Sugar Free!



Sugar Bowl Series on Goodreads:



Lindy's Thoughts:


Sawyer Bennett is an author that guarantees her readers a good story.  I automatically read a book when I see her name on it.  Sugar Daddy is somewhat different than the other stories that she has written.  Whereas her other stories are strictly contemporary romance, this story adds a ton of suspense and has you biting your nails, as you wait to see how everything will unfold.

In Sugar Daddy, we meet the main character, Sela Halstead.  She has trouble in her relationships as far as intimacy is concerned.  Sela cannot find pleasure in physical acts, due to the fact that her innocence was taken when she was violently gang raped at the age of sixteen.  When Sela see's one of the men that raped her on a television commercial, the thought for vengeance begins to take root. 

The man that took her innocence and forever ruined her chances at true intimacy is Jonathan "JT" Townsend.  He is now a successful multi-millionaire and the co-owner of The Sugar Bowl, a matchmaking service that puts older well-off "Sugar Daddies" with "Sugar Babies," young and beautiful women interested in men with money.    

Sela gives herself a complete make-over and signs herself up to be a "Sugar Baby."  However, instead of attracting the attentions of J.T., Sela attracts his business partner, Beckett North.  The plot thickens, when Sela makes the decision to use Beckett as a means to learn more about J.T.  However, plans go awry when Sela see's what a good man Beckett is, and begins to fall in love with him....

Sugar Daddy had me on the edge of my seat, especially at the end!  Wow, what a cliffhanger!  The way Ms. Bennett ended the story was excruciating, and has me dying to read the next installment.  While Sugar Daddy is very different from Ms. Bennett's previous books, it is no less entertaining, sensual, and tantalizing!  What a great read!!!

Rating:


I give, Sugar Daddy, by Sawyer Bennett, 4 Seductive Revenge, Sexual Awakening, Falling in Love, Tough Decision Filled Stars!  I am eagerly anticipating the next story in the Sugar Bowl Series, Sugar Rush!  This series promises to be fantastic, if I am to base it on this first book!  For readers who love a great romantic suspense, filled with erotica, and entertaining characters, check out Sugar Daddy!




About the Author:


Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released more than 30 books and has been featured on both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists on multiple occasions. 

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone. 

Sawyer likes her Bloody Mary’s strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active toddler, as well as full-time servant to two adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.
