Teaser Tuesday

Lush & Lovely, cover reveal

Lush & LovelyWell, the Lush & Lovely cover has been out there for a while, but I wanted to draw special attention to it. The book will be available in a week (yay!). I’m so excited about this book coming out and had to share the cover and a quick sneak peak with you.

Claire doesn’t trust very easily. After having her heart shattered by the first boy she ever trusted, she closed herself off, physically and emotionally, from men. When she wasn’t looking, Aidan slipped past her defenses and became her friend.

Friend Claire could handle. Aidan fixed her coffee each morning at work, helped her during the day, and asked her out regularly. Claire knew the last part was a joke, until Aidan convinced her it wasn’t.

All of a sudden the man she’d been lusting after, who was safe because he wasn’t a possibility, isn’t safe. And neither is her heart.

Claire wants Aidan, more than she ever thought she would want a man. She just has to figure out if she is willing to trust him, and if he’s as lovely as he seems.

Excerpt from Lush & Lovely

“I think it’s time I get you into bed,” he said, igniting a fire inside me. I leaned toward him ever so slightly and grinned. I’d never been so excited to go to bed with a man. Maybe being a bit drunk was the secret.

“I was hoping you’d say that,” I cooed before I reached up and wound my hands around his neck. I rubbed my body against his like a dog in heat and leaned toward his mouth with mine leading the charge. I tugged his face toward me and our lips met in the middle.

Memories of our first kiss drifted away as our second kiss took center stage. Good God the man knew how to kiss. He quickly took control, his hands slipping into my hair and angling my head as his lips teased and tasted mine. He tasted a bit like beer, but I didn’t mind. Our lips danced together, meeting again and again, each time we pulled away making me want him closer all over again.

When Aidan finally dared to dart his tongue between my parted lips, I sighed in approval. One of his hands slid down to my waist and held my hips tight against his. His erection strained against his shorts and I knew it was going to be a good night.

“Jesus, you kiss like a goddess,” he rasped as he pulled back. His lips went to my ear where his teeth slipped out and bit into the soft skin of my earlobe. I gasped at the sudden sensation and he laved over it with his tongue, turning my gasp into a moan of pleasure.

Aidan’s teeth trailed over my neck then his tongue dipped between my collarbones before he worked his way up the other side of my neck. His fingers bit into my fleshy hip and I dragged him by the hair back to my mouth for more.

His tongue thrust quickly into my mouth, not waiting for an invitation. I tried to drag him toward my bedroom, but he held still, his kisses making me forget about anything but the feel of his tongue against mine and his arms surrounding me. His lips were soft against mine, his tongue hard and urgent. I wanted the rest of him hard and urgent.

“Let’s go to my room,” I purred, knowing he was as ready as I was.

“I can’t Claire.”

Chubby & Charming, Best Friends

Chubby-and-Charming-Cover-187x300Chubby & Charming is finally available everywhere! Just in case you haven’t picked it up yet, I have to tease you a little more.

Big & Beautiful is about friendship as much as it is about relationships. The four women who start the series have been best friends for years, and as only friends can do, give each other shit all the time. Life is so much better when you share it with your best friends!

Excerpt from Chubby & Charming

I laughed along with them, flipping pancakes and eating a hot one every once in a while. Claire made me a hot chocolate while the rest of them enjoyed coffee. After breakfast we piled on my couch and flipped channels before deciding to watch Bridesmaids.

My phone beeped with a new message shortly after the movie started. I picked it up halfheartedly, not expecting more than an alert about coupons ready to expire or something like that.

Xander’s name was on my screen and I opened the message. Claire paused the movie, “What’s going on?”

“Nothing, just a text from Xander. Oh, he’s so sweet,” I said, handing my phone over. He’d taken a picture of himself with an empty pillow next to him and said, ‘Your pillow and I are lonely without you.’

The phone beeped again when it reached Addi on the other end of the couch and she squealed and dropped my phone. “What happened?”

“I didn’t need to read that!” she called. “Oh shit, I can’t unread it.”

“What did it say?” Sam asked laughing. She picked up my phone and read the text, laughing. She passed the phone to Claire who responded similarly to Addi and tossed the phone to me.

I read, ‘My cock misses you, too. I’m ready for round two when you are.’

I blushed and sent him a quick text back for us to get together the next day. He responded instantly that he wanted to see my place. I sent him my address and agreed he’d come over for dinner after work the next day.

I tucked my phone away and settled back into the movie, feeling good about the not so awkward morning after.

Available now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Smashwords, Kobo, and others

Chubby and Charming Teaser 2

Chubby & Charming, First Kiss

A first kiss is something amazing, something special. Mandy and Xander’s first kiss is hot and sweet and powerful. I had to share it with you this week!

Chubby and Charming Teaser 1

“You look amazing. I almost don’t want to do this,” he said.

“Do what?” I started to ask but was cut off by his lips on mine.

He held my hand tightly, his other hand drifting softly over my cheek. His lips were pressed loosely against mine, small kisses traded between us. I sighed, loving the feel of his lips on mine, and his tongue reached out to stroke my lips. They parted automatically, as if under his command, and his tongue slid into my mouth.

Only one more week! Chubby & Charming will be available December 1!

Chubby & Charming – Cover Reveal

After a slight delay in production, I’m happy to say Chubby & Charming, the first book in the Big & Beautiful series, will be out in two weeks! I can’t wait to share this book with you, but for today, I’m sharing the cover! I really hope you love it as much as I do. Let me know what you think, and enjoy a sneak peak from Mandy and Xander.

Chubby-and-Charming-Cover-187x300“Western New York Health, Mandy speaking. How can I help you today?”

“Mandy, it’s good to hear your voice.”

It was him. Fuck! Why was he calling me again? And why were my nipples jumping up to say hi on their own.

“Xander, how are you? Did you get your EOB?” I was breathing heavily, trying not to be too excited that he called me. After all, it was probably another problem with his claim.

“You remember me?”

“Uh,” I stammered. Shit! I should have let him reintroduce himself. Isn’t the first rule of getting a guy to like you to play hard to get? And wouldn’t making him think you forgot him fall under playing hard to get?

Yeah, there was a reason I didn’t date.

“I, um, I do remember you. Your voice is very distinct.”

‘Very distinct?’ What the hell was that supposed to mean?

“Distinct. And here I got my hopes up that maybe you had the slightest interest in me.”

Did he really just say that? To me? I thought I was going to have a heart attack. And I couldn’t even blame the stairs. I worked on the first floor.

“I don’t know anything about you Xander. I don’t spend too much of my time wondering about men that I have only spoken to once and don’t know.”

‘LIAR’ my mind screamed. I made it sound like I hadn’t been on Facebook every day to see if he mentioned our conversation, or added new pictures of himself. Nope, I hadn’t gone through his profile with a fine-toothed comb looking for indicators that he had a girlfriend, or wife. And I certainly hadn’t been thinking about him day and night.

Yeah, right.

“Well, I think we need to change that. I was hoping you would meet me sometime. I’d love the chance to maybe buy you a cup of coffee.”

I smiled. No, it wasn’t a smile. It was a shit-eating grin. I couldn’t stop it from covering my face, making me feel like one of the beautiful people. He was gorgeous, simply stunning. And he was asking me out.

Me!

Mandy Ryan!
