Teaser:
 
“Men shouldn’t know how to decorate anyway, using words like gaudy.” I let one brow raise and give him a suspicious smirk. “Do I need to learn how to fix the cars then? What if I get a flat?” “Oh baby,” he growls, his feet pounding the floor as he stalks toward me, “you questioning my manliness?” “Maybe,” I tease, slowing backing up. “Nancy.” My eyes dart anxiously around the room, mentally planning my escape route in this new territory. He laughs deeply, not a ‘ha ha that’s funny’ laugh, but more an ‘uh huh I’m coming to get ya’ sexy laugh. “Got it planned yet?” He grins knowingly, one eyebrow cocked. “Better run to wherever looks the most comfortable.” There’s no furniture yet, what is he talking about comfortable? Seeing the confusion on my face, he answers unasked. “Showing you how much of a man I am when I catch ya,” he creeps closer, “so I’d stay away from the tile, might hurt your back,” the mischief in his eyes ignites as he continues moving slowly closer, “or your knees.” Do I still have to pretend I don’t want to be caught? I love this side of Dane; the dominant, controlling, hunter than comes out more and more every day. The game’s precept itself is laughable; no one could question Dane’s virility. It seeps from his pores, an aura around him taking up all the air in a room. And he’s all mine. From his forever jostled brown locks and matching warm eyes, cocky lopsided grin and sculpted chest all the way to his eight back, that irresistible v and toned, tight ass- he is mine. “You wouldn’t!” I challenge, knowingly delightfully well that he would. “Oh baby, you know I can and will.” He flips open the button on his pants, that cocky grin suffocating me from where he stands, “I think you want me to.”

Untangle Me By Chelle Bliss Blog Tour

Untangle Me (Love at Last, #1)
 
Kayden is a bad boy that never played by the rules. Sophia has always been the quintessential good girl, living a life filled with disappointment. Everything changes when their lives become intertwined through a chance encounter online.

Hundreds of miles separate them, but the connection that draws them together is too much to be denied. As the layers of their lives peel back, Kayden keeps the dangerous parts of his past hidden to protect the woman who is becoming more important to him than he should allow. What starts as a pursuit of carnal pleasure turns into a complicated love story. His past is a tangled web filled with addiction, an obsessed ex-girlfriend, and problems with the law.
********
Well I have been waiting it seems like forever in order to give this review, lol. I was a beta reader for Chelle and I joined her blog tour so it's been killing me to give my opinion. Well, lets jump to it...

Sophia is what she feels like a regular girl, but she doesn't see herself for the natural beauty she totally is. I loved her character, she was so real and relatable for me to get into, and when she loves she does so hard. She takes a chance at meeting someone new by the way of freaking FACEBOOK, now that's usually a BIG ASS no no. But, I think in the end her choices were pure and she put herself out there for the first time only to find what she's always been looking for.

Kayden is a sexy ass major player. He doesn't do girlfriends; he just bangs the ladies. He's a total douche to them, too, no remorse what you see is what you get. It takes a real gem in Sophia to turn his trust issues, alcohol problems, and past to look at her in a new way he didn't think he'd ever be capable of doing with anyone ever again. For Kayden I think he saw Sophia as a conquest at first and then the more they communicated the more he felt for her, and then atfter their first meeting he was completely addicted.

In no way was their relationship gumdrops and butterflies, HELL NO! They fought for each other, pulled each other up and never gave up on what they wanted. Kayden made me scream at him "WTH ARE YOU DOING??!!!" more than once, but after every confrontation their was always an explanation. Oh, let me not forget, their sex is off the charts, one of my (oh shit! let me read that page again) moments. HELLS BELLS hahaha! Kaydens ex-wife causes a shit storm of drama that had me wanting to bitch slap her, too. But, Sophia with her gentle soul kept her head up and kept it pushing even when she just wanted to give up. You gotta respect the girl for even trying after one to many instances left Kayden in a bad light.

I gotta say I CANNOT wait until book two Kayden! That's something that is gonna be even hotter than book 1.

4.5 STARS!!!

Author Info:
I have been a teacher for over ten years, and needed a creative outlet for all my naughty thoughts. I received a bachelors degree in History and a Masters in Education, which led me to becoming a high school history teacher.

I love to read, I can devour a book a day, when given the chance or having the time. I can't pick one favorite book, there are just too many that come to mind. I do have favorite authors though. My top five authors are: Colleen Hoover, S.C. Stephens, Tarryn Fisher, CJ Roberts, and Kele Moon. I agonized over the top five. There are so many fantastic Indie authors that help feed my quest for the next best story.

Writing has been a journey unlike; filled with anguish, love, fear, and creativity. I'm excited for the next step and to share Kayden and Sophia.

Blue Love By MJ Fields Blog Tour

Blue Love (Love, #1) 

Tessa Ross tries to fight her attraction to bad boy Lucas Links. He is hot, arrogant, and has a sexual past that most boys his age could only dream of, (If they even knew they could dream of such things).
Lucas, the star quarterback seems to have it all, super star athletic abilities, expensive clothes, cars, and women who literally stop just to watch him walk by. On the outside he appears to have it all.
Tessa is a young woman who lives her life always doing what is right to make everyone else happy. She tries desperately to hold herself accountable to the demanding expectations of her family and everyone around her.
Is Tessa as innocent as she appears? Is Lucas just a spoiled young man who seems to have what every male, and female want?
Book one of four in the newly edited Love series.

********

Oh man! I do not know where to even start with this series! I have done a few reviews for MJ before, but this one has to be by far the most complicated one. Ok ok, this series was the first of her books, as you all know she takes her characters on a journey from one series to the next, so you may have read about Tessa the main lead in this book in Wrapped already, but she was years older in that one. 

Well the Love Series, starts off with Tessa at the age of 17 and in her Senior year of high school. She meets the male lead to the Series Lucas, while out with her cousin one day.

Now, I want to go on and on about everything that happens, but since this is the only book available right now, i'll stick to this one first.

Tessa is your all around good girl, the virgin, the sweetheart, the popular girl every man wants. Yep! That's her, not very typical since she's also a farm girl who has just recently grown into her body which makes her a knock out. Lucas' school closed down so he is now the starting QB at Tessa's school and the all around hot boy you want to sink your teeth into! But, along with bringing his football skills he's also brought his ex-girlfriends and all of his conquests. So, when poor miss Tessa starts a relationship with Lucas she gets all the backlash as well.

Tessa opens up Lucas' heart to love and friendship that he's so desperately needed and they find a love that one could only which for at their age. But, when you think they have it all figured out, everything they thought they shared comes crashing down. Lucas, broke my heart more than once in this book. I loved him then I didn't. He made dumb discussions that I wish Tessa would of just let him go over. She gets hurt over and over, but I just couldn't put the book down. I just had to figure out what would happen next. 

The book gives a heart-breaking cliff hanger. But, it's so worth it to find out what will happen next.

5 STARS all around. MJ went above and beyond with her story development, characters, and a love that you love to hate and hate to love. Truthfully heart wrenching, but I promise it was all very much worth it by the time the Series is done.

 Excerpt:



Lucas watched as Tessa handed out cups of water finally bringing him one. He had taken off his shirt as well, and he was gorgeous. “Thanks Tessa,” he smiled.

“Thank you for your help Lucas, it was very nice of you,” Tessa smiled shyly at him.
“And she can smile,” he joked. “All I have to do is sweat my ass off throwing hay. Good to know.”
“Tessa, Tessa, we have the corn. Can we help you make dinner for all the boys?” Kendall and Jake asked.
“Sure,” Tessa said smiling like a child as she rubbed her brother’s head, “Can you start husking the corn? I’ll be over in a minute.”
“Tessa, you are making me dinner?” Lucas smirked. “Our first date,” he smiled, drank down his water, and jumped up so he was nose to nose with her. She stopped breathing as he stood there for a moment looking her directly in the eyes. Her heart skipped a beat and she let out a slow breath.
Lucas’s smile left as he looked at her. He was finding it difficult to breathe too. He took a step back and gave her a conflicted smile before he scaled the elevator up to the hay loft.




“Let’s get dressed,” he said taking off his shirt, she stared at him and he laughed, “You like what you see?”
She blushed and looked down, “Yes,” slipped out of her mouth before she could stop it.
He walked up to her and kissed her hard on the lips and she moaned. He pulled away, “You like what you see Tessa so stop looking down, look at me,” he undid his pants and they slipped to the ground. “Don’t look away Tessa,” he smiled.
“Your mom Lucas,” she gasped.
“She’s not coming up here trust me, we could be in here until midnight and she wouldn’t come in,” he smiled and walked up to her in white boxer briefs. He kissed her again, this time longer and harder, he grabbed her head and started kissing down her neck. He slipped her sweater off her shoulders and she started to tense up, it turned him on. He kissed her harder and pulled her shirt up and over her head, she was growing excited, she felt her nipples start to harden and a knot tighten right below her belly button, as they kissed he skillfully undid her bra with one hand the other still pressing her head into his. He slipped one strap off her shoulder and kissed it. He did the same to the other strap and kissed that shoulder, her erect nipples now rubbed against his bare body and she let out a whimper. He kissed her harder and undid her button on her pants, then the zipper, they slipped off and fell on the floor, she could feel his erection pressing against her belly, she dug his back with her nails and he moaned. He picked her up and grabbed her legs and wrapped them around his waist. She moaned loudly, the knot in her belly was replaced by a hot pulsing between her legs.
He laid her on his bed and was on top of her, “Oh God Lucas stop, please.”
“You don’t like this?” he asked looking at her.
“Too much, I like it too much,” she said squirming.
He chuckled, “It’s not time yet, just wanted my new favorite girls against my skin. How did it feel to you?”
“Lucas,” she whined.
He laughed and sat up, “Exactly how I felt last night Tessa,” he stood up and dropped his briefs, he saw her eyes widen. “And that’s how I felt when you showed me your perfect tits,” he turned and walked into his closet as she oogled his muscular ass.
Holy shit he was perfect, not that she has anything to compare it to but the few she has seen in movies, and the articles she had curiously read… well, he was big and erect. Her body throbbed even more thinking about it. She felt heat building between her legs and her panties were damp.
 He walked out in his swim trunks, “What are you waiting for baby? Let’s go swimming,” he smiled.
“I don’t want to move,” her eyes shooting daggers at him.
He laughed out loud as he grabbed her bag and pulled out her swim top and pulled it over her head. He pulled her up and went for her waistband on her underwear, and she pulled away, “I showed you mine now you have to show me yours,” he said grinning.
“Mine is very angry at you,” she scowled at him as she slapped his hand away. He laughed harder and turned around.

BOOK SUMMARY:
Ryan Kendall is broken. He understands pain. He knows the hand of violence and the ache of loss. He knows what it means to fail those who need you. Being broken doesn’t stop him wanting the one thing he can’t have; Finlay Tanner. Her smile is sweet and her future bright.

At nineteen, Ryan leaves to join the Australian Army. After years of training he becomes an elite SAS soldier and deploys to the Afghanistan war. His patrol undertakes the most dangerous missions a soldier can face. But no matter how far he runs, or how hard he fights, his need for Finlay won’t let go.

FIGHTING REDEMPTION
Excerpt
Later that morning after their workout and shower, Jake fell asleep on the couch. Feeling at a loss with nothing but time on his hands, Ryan wandered down the hall towards Fin’s room. She was sitting at a little study nook in the corner, laptop open with one foot resting on her chair. She was wearing a tank top and a little pair of shorts. Leaning up against the doorframe, he couldn’t tear his eyes away from those long, delectable legs.
As though sensing his presence, she turned in her chair. He forced his eyes upwards, catching a sexy flush fill her cheeks at his blatant perusal.
“Morning, Ryan.” She took off her black framed reading glasses and tossed them on the desk.
“Morning, Fin,” he replied.
Against his better judgement, Ryan pushed away from the door and walked farther into the room. Fin hadn’t changed at all and neither had his desire for her. His heart kicked over when she met his eyes. He knew everything he was feeling right now was written all over him, but he couldn’t seem to shut it off.
Her eyelids fluttered closed and she whispered, “Why now?”
Ryan took a deep breath. “I don’t know,” he replied honestly.
He shouldn’t still be feeling this way after so many years. Why was he doing this to her, and to himself? It was better for everyone if he stayed away like he was supposed to.
“I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have come. I’ll go stay at the barracks.” He turned to leave.
“Ryan!” she called out. Scrambling out of the chair, she grabbed his arm as he was halfway out the door.
“Fin,” he warned, looking down at her hand pointedly.
She took a step closer and he breathed her in, her scent like jasmine on a hot summer’s day. He was surprised when he looked into her eyes and saw anger burning hotly in their depths.
“Six years, Ryan. Do you know how hurt I was, each day passing by and getting nothing—not even a note or an email? I didn’t just lose you. I lost my brother too. Both of you left me, and I was okay with that. I understood that this was what you needed to do, so I moved on. I built a life that doesn’t include you. That was what I had to do.” She paused and raised a shaky hand to cup his cheek. “I’d have given you my entire heart if you’d only asked, but it’s not yours now. It’s not yours.”
Ryan closed his eyes, agony for losing what was never his rose in his chest until he felt strangled by it. He placed his hand over hers, holding it there until she tugged it away.
“You’re right,” Fin told him. “You should stay on the barracks … but I don’t want you to. Damn you, Ryan,” she whispered fiercely. “I don’t want you to.”
Ryan used his bulk to crowd her against the wall until there was no room for her to move. Leaning one hand against the wall, he grabbed her hip with the other. Her breathing rose rapidly and he leaned in, ducking his head until their mouths hovered a mere breath apart.
“Why can’t I force myself to leave?” He rested his forehead against hers and closed his eyes. “I hurt too. For six years I fought every day not to think of you, and I lost, because every day you were all I could see. You were the best thing in my life—so sweet and innocent, and so goddamn tempting.” His hand strayed from her hip and slid down to grip her ass. He swallowed the groan. “I stayed away so you could move on.”
