Release Day Blitz ~ Drawn To You ~ Ker Dukey ~

D2U Blitz  Banner

Oh, perfect I just get back from a run with sweaty hair,

wet and hanging loose from the hair band attempting but

failing to keep it in place. I’m wearing sweats and an old

Muse t-shirt with a stain on it from spilt juice, and who’s

sitting looking perfect in a suit and tie, tapping away at his


Mr sexy/annoying as hell Finlay, that’s who.

He gets up and knocks back whatever is in his mug,

closing his computer, and smirks as he takes in my attire.

“There’s eggs still hot on the stove. Help yourself, and tell

Gaby I won’t be back for dinner.” He waltzes past me, his

scent hitting me in the face like invisible mist …delicious

scented mist.

“Do I look like your secretary?” I mumble over my

shoulder, grabbing a bottle of water I’d left on the counter

from earlier then guzzling it down. The warm palm hitting

my ass cheek causes a screech to choke out of me and water

to spurt everywhere. Warm air hits my earlobe as Finlay

whispers, “No, you definitely do not look like my secretary.”

Did he really slap my butt?

“Hang on. Is that an insult or a compliment?” I call after

him as he chuckles and shuts the front door behind him.

Looking down at my outfit, I scrunch my nose up. I need

some new clothes and I need to kick his ass for slapping

D2U Blitz About Kerker

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active... I would want to change the script. I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so I thought it best that I tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I'm not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I'm a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

***Cover Reveal *** The Jared Enigma ~ Jake Malden ~


He's back, and he's as bad as you remember - rock-and-roll rogue Jared Morgan, the small-town boy with big-city attitude and a cock to match. 'The Jared Enigma' takes the man you think you know to new heights of pleasure and depths of debauchery, all in the name of helping the women he meets embrace their wild side. Watch as he disarms a cynical waitress with his breath-taking honesty. Gasp as he provides a curious young sweetheart with the full tour-van experience. Wonder as he shows a frustrated trophy wife the error of her ways. But get ready for the big finale - when Jared's red-headed nemesis takes him on a crazy erotic trip he'll never forget (with a little help from her friends). 'The Jared Enigma' - think you've got the measure of this guy? Think again. 



He shafted her minutes longer—sheer scary heaven, as her pussy learned to accommodate him all. Then he pulled out and threw her onto her hands and knees before she even knew what the hell was going on. “I want you to have a good view of your surroundings,” was his explanation for the change, but maybe it was more so he could see her ass and back, or get a good grip on her. Whatever the reason, he wasted no time. Before she could squeak, he refitted himself and slammed into her cunt from behind.

“Aaagh! Fuck, Jared, holy shit!” Her cries, however, were all but drowned out by her lover’s animal grunting as he screwed her without restraint. Instinct and need drew her hand to her clit and she rubbed it in a fury consistent with that of Jared’s fucking. Then as if his cock’s insane thrusting wasn’t enough, his palm smacked hard against her ass-cheek. “Fuck!” Damn him – what was he trying to do, brand her with a fucking hand print?

One set of fingers grappled her by the shoulder, securing her fast while his groin slapped soundly against her butt-cheeks, cock burying itself in her on each savage stroke. The other flexed hand rose and fell, landing on the same spot as before with equal ferocity. “Aaagh!” Her flesh shuddered as it absorbed the smack along with the persistent barrage of his fucking.

“How does that feel for you?”

“God, you fucking bastard!”

“That good, yeah?”

Rather than relent he spanked again, his other hand shoving her down with her face against the mattress. On he shafted, seemingly oblivious to her muffled cries. Pain and pleasure combined to incendiary effect; Kareena’s hand had not strayed from her pussy despite his savage fucking and excitement was climbing towards its peak once more. How many would this one make? She was losing count. The battered old vehicle rattled around her. Don’t come a-knockin’ ... went the corny old phrase; Jared was rocking the hell out of her and the van.

And then someone did come a-knockin’. She thought she’d imagined the tapping on the van’s back door, but Jared slowed his thrusting and eased his grip so that she could look up. The blond-haired drummer from the band was standing slack-jawed, entranced by the pendular motion of her tits. He was as young as she remembered from the concert, positively gauche-looking compared to his older band-mates. The guy could have passed for a boy-band member as easily as a that of a rock ensemble and his look of amazement was as far from the bassist’s leering interest as conceivable.

“Buddy!” Jared had slowed down, but he sustained both rhythm and depth of penetration as he hailed his younger friend. “What’s up?”

“I ...” The drummer fought for words, his gaze not leaving Kareena. “Sorry, I got beer all over me. Drunk girl in the bar. I was going to change, but ... I can come back ... don’t mean to interrupt ...” The guy’s t-shirt and jeans were indeed splashed dark.

“Is he interrupting, baby?” From the way her cunt was still being stretched out, Jared didn’t seem to be suffering too much disturbance. And oddly she felt little concern that the blond boy with the English accent could see her getting slammed.

“No,” she said between her gasps. “Let him change.”

“She says you can change,” Jared told the drummer. “So get on with it. Then you can give us back our privacy.”

“Ehhh – yeah, sure, thanks.” The young guy scrambled on board and stumbled about beside the fornicating couple until he located a backpack.

“That’s providing she still wants privacy while she fucks. Whadda you say, sweetheart?” Jared had a hold of her ass now, his cock still searching deep, however sedate the current pace.

“Doesn’t much matter tonight,” she managed, her new defiance giving her the presence of mind to articulate the basic notion. Close by the drummer was stripping off his t-shirt with haste, trying to keep his eyes averted this time; he was a gym-ripped kind of skinny. “I don’t care if he sees me,” she elaborated. He paused in reaching for a fresh t-shirt and stared at her again, looking to Jared in his state of bafflement. The contrast with the guitarist’s bravado was irresistibly cute.

“This is Robbie,” Jared told her, and his voice had changed like he was picking up on some unconscious cue she had given him. “He’s all the way from England and he’s a damn fine drummer. He’s not used to this kinda crazy shit, though. Not yet ...”

“Hi Robbie,” she said. “I’m Kareena.” She’d never introduced herself to someone while being fucked before.

“Hi,” the boy her own age said, his clean t-shirt dangling from his fingers. “It’s ... I ... fuck, you’re hot.”

“Isn’t she?” Jared reached to grab one of her tits, she was sure for Robbie’s entertainment. “She’s a nice girl, but she’s getting’ in touch with her slutty side tonight. I’m helping.”

“Don’t be shy,” Kareena told the boy, biting her lip to rein in an overload of sensation. Just how slutty could a nice girl get in one evening? The desire to find out overtook her. “Stay and watch.”

Ignite by Andrea Michelle 

3 Stars

Angel and Kane were a couple in high school and through 3 years of college. Then Kane moved across the country to pursue his screenwriting career and became a huge success. Angel was left behind with a broken heart. Eventually, she moved on and became engaged. However, something happened that threw her back into despair and ended her engagement. Kane has become a successful romance novelist and Angel has created a FB persona named Raven to stalk him. Lies and deceptions have a way of coming out. Will they find their way back to each other?

This story didn't work for me. I often felt like the characters were talking in riddles or circles. I never cared one way or another what happened to Angel and Kane. I feel there is potential for a full-length novel. That would allow the characters to be fleshed out and made more interesting, more complex. I like the idea of Raven and the way it lets her get close to Kane without their past mistakes being between them. I've never seen that angle in a story before and it was interesting to see the cat-and-mouse game they played when Kane suspected the truth. Give this story a try.

Moonlight and Music by Grace Augustine  

4 Stars

Blake McIntyre is a top- notch PR man. However, he just lost his job and needs a new one. His neighbor keeps him up at night with loud music. Finally, one early morning, he goes across the hall and confronts her. Renee Manelli is a singer/songwriter/musician trying to hit the big time. She tends to be the most creative (and loud) early in the morning. She is in need of a new PR manager.

Sparks fly when Blake and Renee meet but should they keep their relationship strictly professional or follow their hearts and take their relationship to the personal level? Read Moonlight and Music to follow Renee as she strives to make it big in music and to follow Blake and Renee as their love blooms.

Moonlight and Music isn't a fable but it has a moral: Never give up trying to reach your goals. It takes hard work and determination to attain what you really want but it is worth it in the end. Don't let set-backs end your dreams.

If you enjoy light romances without angst and darkness, definitely read this book. You won't be sorry.

Fireworks Over Fairfield (A Fairfield Series Novella) by Maryann Jordan 

 5 Stars

Brock has spent his life in the military. Never married, no family, recently retired. He isn't happy or unhappy with his life. It is what it is. When he learns he has a 25 yr-old daughter, Laurie, he wants to be a part of her life so he moves to Fairfield to be near her. Jean is a good friend of Laurie's. She is a Social Worker at the Elementary School where Laurie teaches. When Brock and Jean meet, sparks fly.

This story is part of a series. While it is a stand-alone story, I wish I had read the series first. I never got lost or confused about past events but I would have liked knowing the characters better. I intend to remedy that by reading the series. I guess that tells you that I really enjoyed this book. One of my favorite things was Brock being able to cry openly and unashamed when emotions overtook him and say I'm sorry when needed. I mean he is all man!! Secure enough in himself to be open with his feelings. To me that is uber-sexy!! I also enjoyed the fact that Brock and Jean are mature adults. If you like a sweet romance this is a story you definitely need to read.

Something In The Mix by B Maddox 

 4 Stars

Ivy has finally achieved her dream of owning a bakery. Her life is pretty fantastic after Drew comes back into her life. Drew and Ivy had feelings for each other in high school but never got a chance to act on them. Drew has come back home and is the newest detective on the police force. He intends to win Ivy's heart and make up for all the lost time. The only problem in their lives is a stalker who has a sick obsession with Ivy.

This is a sweet romance with a bit of a mystery. I liked the fact that Ivy and Drew were not formerly a couple and, therefore, they didn't have any baggage from their past. The story flowed easily and the characters were likable. I didn't care for the lax police work in dealing with the stalker. There were pictures of her in her home yet they never checked her house for cameras or listening devices. That would have been one of the first things they did. Even if the investigating officers didn't check, Drew definitely should have. I enjoyed this story and recommend reading it.

Patriotic Rodeo by JM Nash

 3.5 Stars

Kennedy is a young widow running a ranch with the help of her brother, Kaleb, and good friend, Aaron. Tucker is a bull rider in town for the bull riding competition. He ends up staying at the ranch when there is no place left in town. Sparks fly the instant they meet. Kennedy decides a quick fling with Tucker will lead to her being open to finding love in the future. The stars have other ideas.

This story flows easily and the characters are likable. A little more character development would have made it better. Especially Tucker. I still don't know much at all about him. I found it a little strange that Kennedy's husband was killed by a bull yet she wasn't freaked out watching Tucker bull riding. I would have been. This is an enjoyable, short romance. A quick and easy read. It is also a cliffhanger.

Fly Boy by Anne L Parks 

3 Stars

Grant is a Navy Pilot with lousy luck finding a good woman. Jordyn works in the family business and is unhappy with her life. Her parents and brother are cold and care for nothing more than what someone can do to increase their social standing. This includes making Jordyn's life miserable by dictating what she does and who she marries. Grant and Jordyn meet and have a weekend fling. They develop feelings for each other and start a long distance relationship. Over the next year they are kept apart by an accident, lies and deceit from her family, misunderstandings, and bullheaded behavior. They finally find their way back to each other.

I found Grant and Jordyn to be likable characters. I could see their story continuing in another book. I have a problem with one major aspect of the story. It reminded me of the movie An Affair to Remember starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. In the story, Grant's call sign is Cary--for Cary Grant. They are supposed to meet at a certain place but Jordyn doesn't make it because she is hit by a car. In the movie, the woman is paralyzed from the waist down. Jordyn suffered severe lower back and leg trauma. When Grant finally realizes something is wrong, Jordyn is temporarily paralyzed. No, it isn't plagiarism but it is too similar for my taste. Others may not feel that way.

December 2012
It’s been three months since my life changed in the blink of an eye. I was planning a wedding to the most amazing man – a man who I already thought I’d lost once. Fortunately, he hadn’t given up on us and he had found me again. In the short time we were together, he taught me to trust – to trust in love, to trust in him and to trust in us.
I was an up-and-coming, government editor at the Washington Post – partly because of Rich and partly because of my hard work, perseverance and dedication. I loved my job. It was my dream come true.
Rich had also given me the best gift possible when I found out that I was pregnant. At the time, I didn’t know I even wanted children of my own. It wasn’t really something I thought too much about. I was over thirty and hadn’t been in a committed relationship for a number of years, but once I saw those two little pink lines – I wanted nothing more than to be a mom.
We were planning a Christmas wedding. I knew I would be showing by then, but I had always dreamt of getting married surrounded by glowing evergreens. In fact, Rich and his best man, Blake, had already used their connections and secured the Weather Room on the sixty-seventh floor of Rockefeller Center. Typically, the room was only available from January through mid-November, but Rich and Blake were quite a team and once they batted their eyelashes a few times, the event coordinator caved and allowed us to rent the private space for December 15.
It would have been beautiful, overlooking the magical tree that Rich had taken me to a year earlier. I was so stubborn at that point. If only I had opened my heart to him then, maybe I wouldn’t be sitting here alone now – on the same day that was supposed to be the happiest day of my life.
Just as the first of the day’s tears started trickling down my cheeks, I heard a light knocking on my door. Seriously, I feel like I’d been crying since that day in September. I didn’t think it was possible to have so many tears stored in the human body. I was hoping that eventually they would just dry up, but I was starting to believe that would never happen.
Rising from the couch, I padded my way to the front door. Looking out the peephole, I saw Cassidy waving at me from the other side. I was relieved to know I wouldn’t have to spend the afternoon alone. Earlier, I had insisted that my father go out for the afternoon even though he reassured me time and again that he would cancel his plans.
I had moved back to Michigan right before Thanksgiving. I tried to make it work in Washington D.C. and at the Post, but it was just too difficult. The memories, idle curiosity and constant condolences proved to be too much. I knew everyone meant well, but I just needed to grieve my loss on my own.
I opened the door to my best friend’s outstretched arms.
“Awww, honey, you should have called me earlier. I would’ve been here hours ago,” she said, as I buried my head in her chest.
“This was supposed to be the happiest day of my life, Cass. What happened? Why did I let this happen?”
“It’ll get easier, Brookie – you’ll see,” she added reassuringly, as she ran her fingers through my tangled hair. “Why don’t we pop in a movie – I just so happened to grab Magic Mike out of the Redbox on my way over,” she said with a wink. “If Matthew McConaughey’s voice alone can’t make you ‘O’ then we have more serious issues than I thought.”
“Ohmigod, I think you have officially lost your damn mind,” I giggled. “But, thank you. You always seem to know what I need. And, a naked Channing Tatum is just what the doctor ordered.”
Just as I was setting a bowl of popcorn on the table and getting myself comfy on the couch, my phone rang. I startled from the sudden noise and reached out for it. Looking at the caller ID, I just stared at it for a few more rings.
“Cass, you need to answer it. I just can’t take this right now – especially not today.”
