Claiming Serenity (Seeking Serenity #3) by Eden Butler-New Release Blitz & Giveaway

Title: Claiming Serenity (Seeking Serenity, #3)
Author: Eden Butler
Genre: NA | Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 22, 2014
Synopsis

She left glitter in his AC vents. He put green dye in her conditioner. 

She buttered his bathroom floor, and he kidnapped her precious puppy. 

Layla Mullens hates Donovan Donley. His crude language, his wide shoulders, his crystal blue eyes…she hates that she can’t stop herself…from kissing him or landing in his bed. 

And Donovan Donley wants nothing more than to knock Layla off her princess pedestal. He hates her stuck up attitude and her soft, tempting lips. He especially hates that her father is his coach. 

But he’s fine with their arrangement—act horrible to each other during the day, attack each other naked at night. It works. 
But one night changes everything. When Layla doesn’t show, and Donovan’s cold bed stays empty, the lies he tells himself to keep Layla out of his mind aren’t enough to keep him from missing her. And needing her. Something he promised himself would never happen. 

The white flags in their prank war have been lowered but their high stakes battle has just begun.


♥ Claiming Serenity ~ Excerpt ♥

“Come here,” he said, wanting her, just then, but knowing that she needed a moment to calm, to have those worries so evident in the slow way she moved toward him, eased. He let her come to his side, right against his chest and for the first time, Donovan held her tight against him. “I’m not the kind of guy you need.” She sat up, looking at him. “I'm no Prince Charming. I’m not good for anyone and I doubt I ever will be.”

“So do you want this to end? You have doubts?”

He hated the idea of never touching her again. He hated that being without her touch, her taste, would bother him greatly, and if he were a better man, a stronger man, a decent man at all, he would tell her to go. Donovan knew that if he were the kind of man he once was, before betrayal and disappointment fractured whatever he thought he might want one day, then he’d thank Layla for her time and attention and tell her his doubts were too great, that their moment had passed.

But this Donovan was a selfish bastard on his best days. Still, he'd give her something, likely not what she deserved, but something he’d never given to any woman. Ever.

“If I said I didn’t care about you, that would be a lie. I do. Am I in love with you?” He waited, measuring her expression, relaxing when she didn’t look afraid. “No, sorry, I’m not. But I like the way we move together. I like that I can get lost in your body.” I like the way I can still smell your perfume on my pillow after you leave, he said to himself. “I like that you let me do things to your body that I’ve only ever dreamed about.” I like how free you are with me. How beautiful you look when you’re underneath me, falling to pieces. “I like that you don’t ask for anything but my body, for the way I make yours feel.” I love how you let me take you, let me love you like we won’t have another second of this in life.

5 Shocking Stars
Awesome book! This is the 1st book I've read of MJ Nightingale & it won't be the last! I can't wait to read more of this series! I seriously could NOT put it down!
We have Ronnie & Nikko who knew each other previously! When their little almost hook up happened, they both left the scene & never laid eyes on the other until a year later. Call it fate, but after Ronnie finds herself arrested & in jail, Nikko comes to her rescue in the form of her bail bondsman! Nikko & Ronnie go on a run to free her & prove her innocence! Prove that her douche pants boyfriend framed her for smuggling drugs!
I love Ronnie! She's feisty, pretty & smart! She puts together & good plan to try to prove her innocence but will Nikko & his brothers screw it up? Nikko & his brothers are on a mission to also find out the truth but more so just to protect Ronnie until her court date! When Ronnie takes things into her own hands, Nikko has no choice but to follow her! As far as Gary, her douche pants "boyfriend", well I could've throat punched him!
I really loved this book! The characters were so well developed! I laughed, sighed, held my breath from nervousness, swooned over Nikko & his brothers & even had tears in my eyes!! I would recommend this book to everyone!! Great job!



Meet the Marino Brothers


Excerpt #2

Ronnie knew she was drunk because this was just feeling so good. She needed to stop him. But somehow she couldn’t. He smelled so damn good. The cologne, the sea breeze, the wind, and his tongue trailing down her neck had her senses spiraling. That and the three glasses of champagne she had consumed. His lips and teeth nuzzled her neck, little nips that felt like tiny explosions.  His hand slid up her rib cage. She felt the timeless exploration under her breast as he tested its weight. He gently squeezed, and then flicked her nipple beneath the thin material of the bridesmaid gown she wore. He pulled the cup down and a cool blast of night air hit her before his mouth descended on the tiny bud. His mouth was hot. Oh yes! His tongue divine as it titillated her even further. She was the opposite of senseless. She was on fire.
Nikko couldn’t believe his luck. The blond beauty had given him the cold shoulder whenever their paths crossed. But, the little ice princess had warmed up to him. All it had taken was a few drinks, a few dances, and a few suggestions whispered in her ear. He murmured his appreciation around the mouthful of the most amazing breasts he had ever seen in his twenty six years. This little spitfire with the snapping brown eyes had continued to ignore him throughout the ceremony. But at the reception, she loosened up.  Let her hair down so to speak. Once he got her on the dance floor, and showed her a few moves, she came undone and began to relax.  He liked her like this. Very much.
“Oh God!” she whimpered as he circled her nipple with his tongue and then gently pulled on it with his teeth. She was tugging on his dark hair, pulling him closer, showing him her true nature. She wanted this, and he was more than happy to comply.
They met two weeks ago at the rehearsal dinner for his cousin’s wedding. From that moment, he knew he wanted her, underneath him, on top, he didn’t care. She was every man’s wet dream even though it seemed like she didn’t know it.  And right now, she was making one of his fantasies come true, up against a palm tree on the beach in a relatively secluded alcove.  She was pushing against him, craving the contact.  There was no denying he relished it.  And he thanked his lucky stars, because he wanted her, badly. His cock had been at attention all through their dances. Now, it was straining against his black dress pants needing its own gratification.
But, he meant to please her first. She was leaning against the coarse bark of a skinny palm, on the beach where hours earlier his cousin, Victor, wed his lovely bride, Monica. His free hand snaked up her thigh. It was shapely. The girl’s legs were defined, hard under the smooth surface. He could feel her muscles tremble under her silky skin as he slid his hand up the inside of her leg. He cupped her, and again she pushed into his touch. Not one to deny anyone their pleasure, least of all himself, he felt Ronnie part her legs and slid a finger inside. She was already aroused, and wet. He began to flick her clit as she squirmed in time to his ministrations.
“Oh God, Nikko . . .,” she murmured, “that feels so . . .”

Review by Liz
4 Great Stars
 I was asked to read this book for an honest review plus I read the "Love's Taming" and enjoyed it. The dialogue kept me intrigued. It was a love story and mystery rolled into one so it had a good storyline to keep you reading. I really liked getting to know Matt, the detective, and learning about his past. He was this overprotective macho guy but with good intentions. Being hurt in the past left him in a dark place and you see him come out of it and become himself again. Lily is this ordinary sweet girl who's been blamed for a tragedy all her life and knows nothing of being loved and taken care of. She's always been independent due to an accident and starts to give a little when she meets the overbearing Matt. There's weren't any characters I really disliked but of course your usual villains. I enjoyed reading this book. It was a simple read, easy to keep up with. I liked the hot sex scenes and the mystery of the storyline. Not a lot of emotion was pulled from me, but very few books do. I'm hard person to pull emotion from. Overall, the plot flowed really well with a few editing errors here and there but nothing major. I would ready more from this author. I would like to see where B.J. and Suzanne end up.



****************************************************



From an ARC reader: "I am speechless. Your writing deserves a standing ovation. The emotions pouring off the page was incredible. I thought Love's Taming was phenomenal but Love's Tempting is Simply Brilliant. You rock."  

Early Reviews:
I’ve had the pleasure to read ALL of MaryAnn Jordan’s books and I think this is the absolute BEST!!!! MaryAnn Jordan writes books that each and every one of us can relate to. I believe this is why they appeal to me so much! I LOVE Matt and Lily’s story because it incorporates all my favorite elements…INCREDIBLE suspense, HEA, ALPHA males, STRONG females, and A HOT AND STEAMY ROMANCE!!! The author beautifully weaves all these elements to create a magnificent story that you will not want to put down! I cannot wait for more of this series!!!!!! Author Anna Mychals Love’s Tempting was truly and Inspiration. Mary Ann Jordan you deserve a standing ovation for writing such and incredible, brilliant soul consuming story. Your writing is like a hurricane unstoppable and unforgettable, definitely a force to be reckoned with. Be prepared to be hypnotized, by the intense emotions and exceptional visualizations, that leaps off the page and grab at your heartstrings. Can two emotionally and physically scarred individuals move beyond their past and insecurities? Well if you want to know read this amazing book… Matt is a gorgeous detective a true hero at heart. He is an alpha male but a true protector nonetheless. Lily is the sweetest person you will ever meet; she is strong, courageous, determined, and beautiful but does not know it. You will instantly fall in love with her character. Lily is a loner because of her prosthesis; she refuses to form relationships because she fears rejection and a broken heart. Love’s Tempting is about unconditional love, taking chances, friendship, healing and most importantly acceptance and self-worth. Mary Ann you did a phenomenal job with your meticulous characterizations. Every word uttered, every touch I felt it. Thank you for transporting me into a world full of suspense, love and devotion, with unforgettable characters. If you are reading my review do not hesitate to one click five stars guaranteed..      

The God Donor by Anthony J Melchiorri-Blog Tour & Giveaway




Immortality is within reach. 




In 2063, a biotechnological revolution sweeps the nation. Behind this movement is Chicago-based medical giant LyfeGen. The company leads the biotech industry with their Sustain, an implantable artificial organ designed to grant its recipients near-immortality. But many of those recipients are suddenly dying. 

Biomedical scientist Preston Carter developed the Sustain to improve and save lives. Yet there are others that would see him fail. Extreme religious groups, radical movements, and competing corporations would prefer to see LyfeGen collapse rather than allow “the god organ” to fundamentally alter medicine and the human body. In a race against time, Carter must learn to trust resourceful journalist Audrey Cook. She may hold the key to discovering who is sabotaging the Sustain. And with the organ already implanted in his own body, Carter must uncover the truth before he’s killed by his invention. 
THE GOD ORGAN is a near-future medical thriller that takes the reader on a suspenseful ride filled with sinister conspiracies, intriguing biomedical science, and rampant corruption that will leave readers wondering just how dangerous becoming a god may really be. 


Anthony J Melchiorri is a writer and biomedical engineer living in Maryland. He spends most of his time developing cardiovascular devices for tissue engineering to treat children with congenital heart defects when he isn't writing or reading.
