Blurb
He’s completely off-limits.
I couldn’t stand the rumors it would cause. 
But I’m drawn to his dark and soulful gaze, to the
wistfulness and pain in his voice when talking about his past.
His slightest touch sets my skin aflame. My lips beg for his
kiss. My body hungers for his.
He says no one has to know. He says he can keep us a secret.
I’ve worked too hard to jeopardize my reputation, but I want
to believe him. Can I trust no one will find out?
After all, a gentleman doesn’t kiss and tell…

NEW: Pretty Thing

 

Title: Pretty Thing
Author: JA Huss
Genre: Contemporary Romance

(Brother’s Best Friend)

Release Date: April 15, 2019
Blurb
My best friend made damn sure I knew the rules. His sister was strictly
off limits.
UNTIL NOW.
KALI
Growing up it was always the three of us. Me,
my twin brother, Kyle, and our best friend, Aiden. We were inseparable all the
way through high school.
Did I picture myself with Aiden from the first
moment I laid eyes on him back when we were eight? Hell. Yes. I fell in love
with his soul that day. But he was always more Kyle’s friend than mine. And
Kyle made damn sure we both know the rules.
I was strictly off limits. Forever.
But now Kyle is gone. Dead from a freak
accident. And Aiden is still here. Looking hot as hell in his grown-up body.
Looking sexy AF with those tattoos all over his muscular chest. Sad and in need
of comfort.  Just like me.
AIDEN
Every time Kyle caught me lusting after his
twin sister, Kali, he reminded me of the rule. “You were my friend first.”
If you want to get technical about it, I was
Kali’s friend first, not Kyle’s. But that’s not how he saw it. One rule. That’s
all we had between us. Just one. Stay away from my sister.
All these years I’ve honored that. I never
broke his trust. Until now.  Because he’s dead. He left us. And being
with Kali is the only thing that makes the pain go away.
I want Kali. I want to marry her, and have kids
with her, and keep her in my bed forever.
But I want Kyle’s blessing too. And that’s
something I’ll never get.

Excerpt

Kali sighs a little. Her shoulders slump and her head lowers
with them. “I’m not using you,” she says.
“Good,” I say. “Because I’m not using you either.”
“I’ve always liked you. And if you’d like to talk about that
someday, we can. But…” She looks at me. Places her hands on the sides of my
face. Blinks twice. “Not tonight, OK? Can we just not think too hard about it?”
It, meaning the sex. Or maybe the funeral. I’m not sure.
I decide to say nothing in response. I’m drunk, I’m sad, I’m
horny, and I’ve got Kali Anderson sitting in my lap.
And we’re naked.
“Come here,” I say, placing my hands on her head. “I want to
kiss you for a while.”
She smiles into the kiss that comes next. It’s a nice kiss.
A slow kiss. One where our mouths fit together perfectly, and move just the
right way, and there’s nothing awkward or distracting about it. It’s just nice.
After a little bit of that I find myself thinking too hard
again.
Maybe slow and careful is a bad thing? Maybe what we really
need tonight is something hard, and angry, and quick?
She reaches down between her legs and begins playing with
herself again. Rubbing her pussy with the flat tips of her fingers as she
stares into my eyes.
Yeah. Slow and careful is for another night.
I reach down and take my cock in my hand. Pulling and tugging
on it. I’m already fully erect but there’s something intimate about
masturbating in front of someone. And doing it together is even hotter.
Her other hand rests on my shoulder and a chill rises up my
spine.
This girl. This pretty thing I’ve known almost my whole
life. She is the dream girl. She is the one I’ve always wanted. She might even
be the one I’ve always loved.

Title: Release
Series: Off Balance #3

Blurb
After Kova’s devastating betrayal, Adrianna must become her
own champion and place her Olympic dream ahead of all else. In doing so, she
ignores the warning signs as both the extreme training and unending heartbreak
begin to take their toll.
There is no atoning for what Kova did. The vow he made
cannot be undone. With boundaries set and lines clearly defined, Kova will now
have to be the one to relinquish control in order to regain Adrianna’s trust.
Though the dynamics shift between coach and gymnast, nothing
can prepare them for the agonizing truth that is to come. Fighting for a dream
becomes only half the battle when Adrianna’s fate is sealed, leaving them both
with their biggest challenge yet.
** Author note **
Much like a student-teacher novel, the Off Balance series is
a highly forbidden romance story between a gymnast and a coach. If you find
this genre of novels to be not to your liking in any way, shape, or form, this
series is not for you.
This novel is purely fictional and does not reflect on
real-life events. Gymnastics is a hands-on sport that involves many hours of
close contact with an instructor. My main goal was to focus not only on the
beauty of the sport in detail, but also what goes on behind closed doors and
how working with a coach for nearly forty hours a week can evolve into
something more. This story is meant to push you, to take you outside of your
comfort zone. I hope you take the plunge with an open mind before making
judgment.
The Off Balance series is intended only for readers 18
years of age and older. Reader discretion is advised.

Excerpt
Jealousy is
a relatively new emotion for me, filling my heart with a million sharp shards
of glass. It scratches me raw so easily, until my heart was torn and bleeding.
Feeling it for the first time, find myself inferior in a whole new way, I sob
into my pillows helplessly.
Dryas comes
into the bedroom a while later on quiet feet. I am glad he didn’t see the fit
of tears that chased me out of the kitchen. Still, my eyes are red and puffy,
my nose still stuffed up. As he approaches the bed, I can’t help but wonder if
he compares me to her.
That
thought, dark and vicious, seems to gnaw at my soul. 
When he
sits down beside me, I release a long-suffering sigh. Looking up at him, I’m
embarrassed to even be having these emotions, yet incapable of feeling
differently. He pins me with that chartreuse gaze, those dark brows drawn low.
“I am
sorry,” he begins, surprising me. “I should have told you about Aurelia from
the start.”
I push
myself upright, sniffling. “I mean, I’m not your girlfriend. This isn’t a
relationship we are in, technically. You don’t owe me any explanations.”
 He
looks a little surprised. “No? What would you call it, then?”
My face
heats up, my cheeks growing as red as cherries. I hesitate. “I… I don’t know.
We never talked about it. It just sort of… happened. One time turned into two,
two times to four…”
I splay my
hand on the comforter, picking at a loose thread. Dryas sighs and shifts closer
to me.
“Do I mean
nothing to you, then?”
He takes my
hand, pulling it against his torso. I glance up at him, my heart racing at his
words. 
“No. Of
course not,” I reply, my words soft.
His lips
lift in the gentlest smile. He’s devastatingly handsome in that moment, looking
down at me with his brilliant yellow-green eyes.“Good. You mean something to
me, too.”
He leans
across and drops the perfect kiss against my bee-stung lips, gentle but firm,
tender yet passionate. I open my mouth to him, my fingers clutching at the
sweatshirt covering his chest. God, how I love this man.

REVIEW: Invisible Leash

41714565

My name is Sage Cross.

I’ve got it all-the beauty, the brains, the bank account.

Women hate me. Men want my Louboutins around their necks.

And I blame my father for everything. It’s his fault I’m swarming through powerful men in suits while I’m stuck posing as a useless, jobless photo op.

Until he sends the perfect weapon my way: Lincoln Black. Mark my words, I plan to use him. In more ways than one.

What I don’t expect coming my way is Jacob Storm, a beautiful, possessive, millionaire who sexed his way through Manhattan.

I spread my legs. My black heart however remains on lockdown.

You’ve been warned.

Review

I’m not entirely sure what to think about this one. The premise was original and I definitely enjoyed Sage’s story and development…but it wasn’t what I was expecting. The cover and blurb give the impression that this would be a much sexier, steamier read than its actual contents. In fact, the only ‘sexy’ part, really, was Sage’s fabulous, daring fashion preferences.

I appreciated M.H.B.’s interesting take on a love triangle, but sadly I found Jacob a lukewarm hero with not much to him other than some slightly unsettling jealousy and impatience. There was enough intrigue (and plenty of drama) to make me want to read on, but I’m not entirely on-side just yet.

Before I finish, I’d also like to mention that this could have used another round of proofreading, but as I signed up to review Part 2 and this was also therefore an ARC, I’m unsure if this is the final, published copy or not. Therefore, that does not contribute to my rating.

How to add an approved e-mail address to your Kindle

The vast majority of ARC’s (advanced review/reader copies) are now sent direct-to-Kindle. For new book bloggers and reviewers, that means it’s imperative to know how to add an approved e-mail address to your Kindle so that, when you hit that synch button, that up-and-coming bestseller will be ready and waiting for you.

It might be confusing at first to work out how to do this (Amazon doesn’t exactly signpost it!), so here’s a quick and easy guide.

  1. Log in to your Amazon account
  2. Hover over Account & Lists
  3. Click on Manage Your Content and Devices
  4. Click on Preferences
  5. Expand Personal Document Settings
  6. Scroll down to Approved Personal Document E-mail List
  7. Click Add a New Approved E-mail Address
  8. Type in the e-mail address you want to approve

TIP: If you enter a partial address, you will be able to receive documents from multiple senders. This means you won’t have to add every individual e-mail address to your safe senders list…but do consider that people you DON’T authorise will be able to send documents to your Kindle if they know your Kindle address. For example: adding @gmail.com will approve every e-mail address that uses @gmail.com as its domain name.

9. Click Add Address

You’re done! Happy reading!
