Thirsty Thursday


I hope everyone had a wonderful Wednesday.  I sent out a quick note last night apologizing for my Hump Day absence.  I have been extremely busy this week.  I am preparing for my visit from my biological father and his wife on Friday and my trip to Morehead City, North Carolina to see my bestie/step-sister this weekend!

You are probably a little curious on the bestie/step-sister meaning.  Well it is like this….My best friend and I have been friends since our births.  Our mothers were great friends back then.  My bestie and I have always had each others backs and labeled ourselves as sisters.  Her kids are my kids and my kids are hers.  Well in 2016 the weirdest thing happened.  My dad married her mother.  Yep!  That happened.  So now we are step-sisters.   How cool is that?!  Awesome right.

On top of all that I am participating in a beta read.  My second one ever!!  I am having so much fun doing this.  The author Sara and I have been cracking up together and it has been a blast.  I really love the fact that I get to deep dive into the book and ask all kinds of questions that I would not normally get to ask.  I even found out that she used a phrase from my book review of her last book, in this book.  How cool is that?!  It is freaking awesome, that is what it is.

When I went into blogging I never imagined all the possibilities that could come from it.  I was just looking for an outlet to put my book reviews out and help my small group of author friends promote their book babies.  It has truly been an amazing journey and I want to say thank you to everyone for making this possible.  I never imagined my blog would take off like it has.

So today I have a treat for you.  Since I missed Hump Day I had to make up for it.  So today is Thursday and I would say Thirsty Thursday sounds good.  So first off I have sexy men books, as always.  And then I have sexy hot and wet men!  That’s right.  You heard me I said wet men!!!  So let’s get to it shall we.

She can’t run away from me…she’s carrying my babies.
Serena, you’re mine and only mine.
I will bring you back…and make you beg.My life was just so perfect.
Money, Fame, Women – you name it, I had it.
And yet something seemed missing.
Until Her…
Her delicious, curvy package was made for me.
She’s that sweet and spicy seduction…completely intoxicating – you could call her every man’s dream.
And yet, I was a jerk and let her go.
I was a bigger jerk thinking she would wait for me.
She says she doesn’t need me in her life now.
But one look into her luscious eyes and at that pregnant belly,
And I know…I will do all it takes to make her mine.


Another great book by Bella Winters.

In this story Serena is a small town girl struggling to make it in the big city. When she gets a job at a bar as a shot girl she feels life can’t get any lower. Uncomfortable in her skimpy uniform and old men pawing her she feels like yep can’t get much worse. Then she meets Ben.

Ben is a handsome successful business man. But he is a playboy and has no intention of ever settling down. Till he meets Serena. He is so captured by her. When she finds out she will be homeless soon, he suggests her moving in with him. Things are moving fast and things are hot and heavy. That is till he gets news of his business not performing as well as it was.

Well Ben freaks out! When he talks to Serena about this and his plans to move slow, he is interrupted by her news of he is going to be a father. He flips out and kicks her out.

With no money, pregnant and no place to live Serena is devastated. Was this all a dream? She must take of the rose-colored glasses and face reality.

Will Ben ever get his life together and fix the mess he mad of it? Will he be able to convince her to give him another try?

I really enjoyed this love story. The characters were interesting and lovable. There were some oh no he didn’t moments and moments when I wanted to hit him. But in the end I found him to be wonderful and loving.

This book was a page turner of emotion. Then story was relatable and easy to read. A hot steamy number that will have you thinking dirty thoughts. 😉. An enjoyable love story 💕

Bella Winters is a wonderful writer who can really bring an alpha male to his knees. Check out her many books. Each one is a hot steamy tale of romance and happily ever afters.

The day Ian “Tag” Taggart’s world comes crashing down around him, he’s sitting in a fast food drive-thru, waiting for an order of fries.

Exclusive Excerpt:

I’ll never forget where I was the day my world came crashing down around me.
I wish I had a better story. Something like, I was volunteering at a hospital, visiting sick children, when the news first hit. Or, I had just finished saving an old woman and her forty-two cats from a burning building when my agent called.
But no. I was sitting in the fucking drive-through at McDonald’s, waiting for my daily fix of salty goodness, when the radio newscaster interrupted coverage of the Seahawks game to drop what would turn out to be the most defining moment of my life thus far.
“Charges have been filed against MLB star Ian Taggart, better known as Tag Taggart, of the Washington Rampage. Our sources say a young woman has come forward with allegations that Taggart sexually assaulted her after their division win last season.”
I didn’t hear what he said after that, my Bluetooth kicking on in my truck as I answered the call from Ray, my agent.
What had started as a simple stop through a pick-up window ended up being the catalyst to the worst period of my entire life. And, now, six months and hours and hours of turmoil, frustration, and a hell of a lot of anger later, it all comes down to this moment.
My career.
My life.
My future.
Coach Peters is sitting across from me with James Shelton, the Rampage’s GM, to his left.
Lucky for me, Mr. Lane couldn’t be here today. As the owner of the team, he generally tries to stay abreast of anything involving his players. He’s a little too involved, if you ask me. I’ve had far more meetings with the man in the past few months than I ever cared to have in my life. Add in the fact that he’s a class-A douche canoe, and…well, let’s just say, there are times when I’ve had to wonder if this is my punishment for the crime I didn’t even commit. Having to deal with Tyler Lane on the regular has to be worse than any prison cell could ever be.
And that’s right; you heard me correctly. I know that’s the standard answer all assholes give when they’re hit with a rape charge. And I know, ninety percent of the time, they’re lying through their teeth. Being a professional athlete seems to make some guys think they’re untouchable—a fact I can attest to from the hundreds, if not thousands, of times I’ve witnessed unwanted advances, unpaid tabs, drugs, and dozens of other less than savory activities. But I digress.
The fact is, I am not that guy. I love women. I respect women. Fuck, if I could build a shrine to women and worship at the altar of femininity, I would. Because, if there’s one thing in this world I love more than baseball, it’s the female body. But I would never touch a woman in any way that was unwanted or untoward.
The night I met Angela Hancock was the best night of my life.
We’d just won our division championship—a first in my seven years with the Rampage—and I was riding high. And I could think of no better way to celebrate than a night out with my teammates, a few bottles of Jack split between us, and a couple of willing females to keep us company.
I set my sights on Angela the moment I spotted her on the dance floor, her short black skirt and low-cut red top too mouthwatering to resist. When she took a break from her friends and headed to the bar to refresh her drink, I made my move.
Now, I’m not going to lie and say I had to work to get her attention. To be totally honest, I’ve never had any trouble finding a woman to warm my bed. With my muscular build, tan skin, and fucking adorable smile—you try to tell me dimples aren’t cute—I know I fit the mold of what women consider hot. And, before you start to think I’m a cocky asshole, let me stop you right there. There’s a difference between conceit and confidence. My teammate Simon Weaver is an arrogant fuckwit. Me, on the other hand? I radiate a smooth assurance that women can’t help but be attracted to.
To say getting Angela back to my room was easy would be an understatement. After one quick dance—if you could even call it that—we basically just dry-humped the shit out of each other for three minutes. And, with another shot of Jack for the road, we were on our way.
I might have had a few drinks, but I wasn’t drunk. And I can say with absolute certainty that everything that happened that night was completely consensual.
Angela slammed the door behind us and had my shirt off and her hand down my pants faster than you could say, Do you have a condom? I’ve always been a sucker for a girl who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to take control.
But, even in my lust-fueled state, I wasn’t too far gone to stop for protection and to make sure she understood what this was.
“This is only for tonight. You got that, right?”
Not exactly the most romantic thing in the world to hear two seconds before some dude shoves his cock inside you, but as I said, I like to make sure a woman knows exactly what she’s getting with me.
She made no bones about my declaration, and the next few hours were pretty fucking amazing, if I do say so myself.
In fact, the only reason I remembered who she was when Ray called me to give me the deets on the woman pressing charges was because of what a fantastic lay she had been. Normally, I’m a love-’em-and-leave-’em kinda guy—all their faces sort of blurring together into one giant blob of sexy times.
Hey, I said I wasn’t a rapist. I never said I wasn’t a whore.
