Hollywood Actress
Hollywood Royalty Book 1
by L. Grubb
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Acting is my life but cocaine is my salvation.
My name is Mya Fritz and I’m Hollywood Royalty, Oscar winner, best
actress of 2018. But I’m a fucking wreck, though on the outside I
act like I own the world.
I’ve not always been this way, I swear it. But after a relationship to
another Hollywood big wig, I’ve been left reeling. He has power
over me that no one else has. He has something that could ruin
everything I’ve worked my ass off for. And I have no doubt that
Finn Thimble will fucking annihilate me. There’s nothing I can do
to stop him getting revenge if I ever talk about what he put me
through. This secret that only we know about, a secret so big that my
fucking family would be ashamed of me over, is the one reason I
turned to drugs. Drugs help me breathe, they help me focus. Hell,
they fucking do everything to stop me from ending my own miserable
existence. I know I should be grateful for what I have, and I am, but
it’s hard to stay at the top when an epic thunder cloud looms over
your head.
I have no one in my corner and that’s because no one knows. And it
needs to stay that way. Especially as my growing feelings for
Hollywood Actor Levi Jameson is on the line. I promised I’d never
involve myself with another actor, but here I am again, falling for
someone I shouldn’t. Levi is the opposite of Finn; gentle, kind and
fucking delicious. I mean, have you seen his dimples? Swoon.
But our budding friendship is built on lies. I know this; he doesn’t.
He doesn’t know the real reason I’m pulling back from him. And if
I tell him? Finn will know, he’ll then make sure the world knows
our dirty secret.
Can I move forward and be happy? Could I ever have a relationship with
someone as prominent and handsome as Levi Jameson; the Hollywood
heart throb? Time will tell but fuck, this isn’t going to be pretty.
All I can do is hope and pray. Hope that cocaine keeps me from talking.
Hope that If the truth ever comes out that I can pick myself up and
carry on… with or without Levi. Wish me fucking luck.

Hollywood Bestie
Hollywood Royalty Book 2
A messy divorce. An unexpected crush and a Hollywood actress as a best
friend. My life is drama with a capital D.
I’ve been with
one man since the age of fifteen, a man I loved so much that my mind
was blinded to his laziness and controlling nature. Spending your
entire adulthood with one man, dating will be awkward. But with a
messy divorce ahead of me, I’m not looking for love. I’m looking
for nothing more than how to process life without my husband. Finding
him between a much younger woman’s legs ripped my heart to shreds,
my trust in men has been shattered. Not only that, but I’m awkward
as fuck.
Mya has opened doors for me in my career; I’ve
gone from stylist to fashionista for celebrities in a matter of
months. My whole world has been turned on its axis and as I establish
a name for myself in Hollywood, I’m avoiding my
soon-to-be-ex-husband like he’s the plague. It’s not unheard of
for an ex to stalk you, but I never thought it would happen to me.
How could I think of dating other men when Evan is always over my
shoulder, gripping me with an unknown fear.
I’m taking from
Evan everything that he owns; money, house, cars… everything. He
deserves to have nothing in his life. Nothing. And I will win this
fucking battle, even if it could get me killed.
But life threw
me a curveball when Hollywood heartthrob, Bradley Cooper, entered my
life, I’m suddenly questioning what the fuck I’ve been missing my
whole life. Could we become anything more than friends? Will Evan
scare him away? Or will I?

First Lines Fridays # 11

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. I first saw this on Life of A Literary Nerd  and decided this would be fun to start adding to my blog. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

*Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page

*Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first

*Finally… reveal the book!

Never regret anything that once made you happy. The deathbed advice part imparted years ago by her mother had comforted Steffi in the wake of many mistakes.


The Memory of You by Jamie Beck

The Memory of You is a renewed love story of two people trying to move forward from the mistakes in their past. It is a contemporary romance that will warm your heart.

From Back Cover

Stefanie Lockwood can repair anything, except her heart—that’s still recovering.

After a brutal assault leaves Steffi Lockwood with puzzling memory lapses, she returns to her coastal Connecticut hometown to rebuild her life the best way she knows how—with her hands. But starting a remodeling business with one old friend puts her in the middle of a rift with another. Worse, being hired by her ex-boyfriend’s mother forces her to confront old regrets.

Public defender Ryan Quinn wasn’t shocked when his wife left him, but he was floored when she abandoned their daughter. With his finances up in the air, the newly single dad returns to his childhood home in Sanctuary Sound. The last person he expects, or wants, to see working on his family house is Steffi Lockwood—the first love who shattered his heart.

Although Steffi and Ryan are different people now, dormant feelings rekindle. But when Ryan’s concern for Steffi’s mental health prompts him to dig into her past for answers, will what he learns bring them together or tear them apart for good?

she’s leaving New Orleans for a fresh start in Michigan–which just
happens to be where he’s headed with the pack of rescue dogs he’s
delivering to the sanctuary he works for. But when three thugs
threaten to take lovely Lissa off his hands, he realizes she’s in
need of a sanctuary, too.
Once Lissa is riding

Forever Found
Forever Friends #2
Head vet at the Forever Friends animal rescue shelter, Gabriel Moretti is
known as the Dog Whisperer because of his gift for soothing
rambunctious patients. But it’s the two-legged species that has
him, and his libido, working overtime. Marla Popov single-handedly
saved the shelter from financial ruin. But the bossy trust funder is
even more irritating than her snooty Standard Poodle. You’d think
keeping his attraction on a short leash would be a no-brainer for
Gabe. Unfortunately, Marla is also smart, beautiful, and intriguing . . .
Most of her life,
people have been eager to tell Marla just what she wants to hear. So
now that she’s nearing forty, she doesn’t expect to be
refused—especially by a sexy younger man like Gabe. She also
doesn’t expect it to sting so much. But when she discovers a scheme
involving illegal dog fights, she gets a chance to show what she’s
truly made of. And as she and Gabe team up to fight it, they discover
a surprising respect for each other—and passion that might just
grow into love. . .
Forever Home
Forever Friends #1

Isabelle Lopez has never been a dog person. Raising her daughter alone and
building a real estate career leaves no time for four-legged
furballs. When she finds an abandoned mutt and litter of pups in a
foreclosed apartment, Izzy intends to drop them off at a shelter and
walk briskly away. Instead, her “heroic” deed makes her a local
celebrity. Her boss is thrilled. Commissions are up. And thanks to
gorgeous shelter owner Bradley Cohen, Izzy’s disciplined life is
suddenly much, much more complicated.

He’s got a sexy smile, a wicked sense of humor, and a big, noble heart.
Even as Izzy tries to get her libido to
heel, boy, Bradley
sets out to convince her there’s more to life than padding her bank
account. But Izzy knows a trade secret that puts Brad’s beloved
shelter at risk, and she can’t warn him.

Their relationship was barely getting started; suddenly it’s in the dog
house. Now Izzy and Brad need to figure out what matters most, and
whether this could be much more than animal attraction…

Allyson Charles lives in Northern California. A former attorney, she
happily ditched those suits and now works in her pajamas writing
about men’s briefs instead of legal briefs. When she’s not
writing, she’s probably engaged in one of her favorite hobbies:
napping, eating, or martial arts (That last one almost makes up for
the first two, right?). One of Allyson’s greatest disappointments
is living in a state that doesn’t have any Cracker Barrels in it.

Book Spotlight Guardian Domination by Breanna Hayse

Guardian Domination
by Breanna Hayse
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Celeste Bronston once again faces the law and the only way to avoid
incarceration is to submit herself to a man she’s never met—her
godfather, Jace Jordon. The judge’s condition is that the
18-year-old will be under Jace’s authority until she turns
twenty-one. Having no other choice except for jail, she accepts the
court’s offer.
Her legal guardian is not at all what she imagined him to be! Besides
being young, quite wealthy and exceedingly handsome, the man has a
unique way in dealing with obstinate and naughty young woman. Failure
to follow his strict rules and exercising poor behavior promptly
earns the young lady and trip over his knee for a memorable
bare-bottom spanking!
Jace also offers her the love and respect that she had not experienced in
the past. Together with his best friend, Mark, the men help Celeste
learn about her value and worth as a human being. As she thrives in
the environment of domestic discipline, Celeste’s feelings toward
Jace begin to change—along with her desire to learn more about his
lifestyle as a dominant. She accepts his challenge to learn about
dominance and submission, themselves facing a crossroads. Do they
dare step over the line and experiment with romance?
Guardian Domination was written to share my actual training as a submissive in
a fictional background. All the scenes are recreations of actual
events. This work includes spanking of adult women. If you liked
Fifty Shades of Grey, then this book is certainly for you.
BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and
reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel
the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine
Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to
go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a
marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative
lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique
inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both
submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving.
Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and
mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.
My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door
to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time,
I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community
involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant
behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my
submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled
primarily from either personal experience or observation, including
spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My
multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and
give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of
fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of
the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on
‘the real deal.’
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and
two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S
relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear),
and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies
include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John
can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and
developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured
author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a
Sexpert for
