~Synopsis~

In the seductive first installment of an eBook original serial from the New York Times bestselling author of Ruined and Addicted, a woman running from her past has finally found a bit of control . . . until her powerful new boss makes her go wild.

My name is Aria Winston. I’ve fought desperately to escape the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas. Now I’m on my own, in control of my own life and my own destiny . . . just the way I like it. Until Sebastian Caine changes everything.

Working as a cocktail waitress at one of Vegas’s hottest five-star casinos means putting up with a ton of bad behavior from the big spenders. But it pays the bills—and that’s all that matters to Aria, who needs every last dollar to escape from her father’s destructive grasp and the brutal man he expects her to marry. But when she lashes out against a billionaire who won’t take no for an answer, she nearly loses everything—until Sebastian steps in. The owner’s son and handpicked successor, Sebastian is dark, sexy, and kinder than any rich man should be. And when he apologizes and offers to keep her job safe, Aria can’t help the way her body reacts to his. Suddenly her job, and the security it brings her, isn’t the only thing Aria wants.

Play Me is an erotic serial intended for mature audiences. Aria and Sebastian’s story continues in Play Me: Hot.H

~Review~

*a copy was provided for review purposes*

This is the first installment of five. It is a quick read and a teaser for the rest of the series.

Aria is trying to escape her past but she can’t go too far because of her sister. Stuck in a waitressing job at a casino she tries to make ends meet. Every day she deals with the rich and powerful that feel they can do anything they want, treat anyone anyway they want. When one of the Whales starts feeling up a girl against her will she does the only thing she can do, she whacks him in the head with her tray. Then she was fired. When she goes in to receive her last paycheck she never expects to see the most stunning man she’s ever seen. She also doesn’t expect him to give her, her job back, or for her boss to issue her an offer, an offer for control.

Sebastian hates Las Vegas and never intended to come back. Except now his father is sick and so it’s his job to take over the casino and get out of the financial hole his father left the business in. When he finds out a girl who works for him hit a Whale and was then fired he had to make this error right. When coming face to face with her he never expected her to be so beautiful, or so feisty. He wants her in his bed and even after she refuses he knows he’ll do anything to gain her trust.

The mystery surrounding both Aria and Sebastian’s past leave you ready to pounce right into the next book because you just crave more, more, more! I loved both of the characters and can easily see myself getting sucked in the further I get along.

~Author Bio~

Tracy Wolff

Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.

And for all of those who want the unedited version:

Tracy Wolff lives with four men, teaches writing to local college students and spends as much time as she can manage immersed in worlds of her own creation. Married to the alpha hero of her dreams for twelve years, she is the mother of three young sons who spend most of their time trying to make her as crazy as possible.

Virgin by Radhika Sanghani


Virgin

Virgin by Radhika Sanghani

Kindle edition, 304 pages

Published: August 5th, 2014 by Berkley

~Rating: 4/5 stars~

Goodreads Button with Shadow

~Description~

Okay, I admit it… I didn’t do i.

Yet.

This is normal right? I mean, just because everyone I know has talked like they’ve already done it doesn’t mean that they’re telling the truth…..right?

It’s not like I’m asking for that much. I don’t need the perfect guy. I don’t need candlelight or roses. Honestly, I don’t even need a real bed.

The guys I know complain that the girls are always looking for Mr. Right – do I have to wear a sign that says I’m only looking for Mr. Right now?

Sooooo…anyone out there want sex? Anyone? Hello? Just for fun?

I am not going to die a virgin. One way or another i am going to make this happen.

Hey, what have I got to loose? Besides the obvious.

~Review~

At first I wasn’t sure what to make of this book. I was worried this was going to just be another NA novel where the perfect and beautiful but doesn’t know she’s beautiful heroine is oblivious to the hundreds of men that want her and she decides on a whim to succumb to her so-called friends pressuring her to just do it already.  Virgin was not like that. It really was something special. I’m just blown away. Sanghani is on my radar now.

Virgin is great. Well written, funny, and very relevant to our time. Even thought the protagonist is a virgin she is frank about her body, and sex. I really appreciated how detailed she was in all the many adventures she had with four play, masturbation, body hair, and all the things we rarely see young women deal with in an honest, authentic way.

Ellie is a twenty-one year old virgin who shares her story of attempts to have her deflowered with the aid of her partner-in-crime friend Lara. Lara helps Ellie find a suitable men for the mission at hand until a disagreement between them causes Ellie and Lara to leave and go their separate ways.

Ellie embarks on several adventures with the opposite sex to speed up the process of becoming a non-virgin to no avail. Ellie learns the proper rules of kissing, foreplay, and describes in length different ways she masturbates to recognize an orgasm when the big day happens. In addition, Ellie starts a ‘VLOG’ that is strictly dedicated to everything ‘vagina’ including the inner and outer workings of this special place on a woman’s body. Ellie is determined in losing her virginity before becoming an old woman and willing to do almost anything to get that accomplished.

Overall, I really enjoyed this novel, and hope to read more from this author.  I highly recommend this novel!

~Description~

Five college friends, three men and two women, have been getting together every Thursday night to share humble meals and an abundance of laughter. But when tragedy takes one of them, leaving the others to question the fairness of life, the Thursday Night Club decides to embark on a contest in the memory of the generous spirit of their fallen brother. The objective of the contest is simple: whoever performs the kindest deed by Christmas night wins the pot – four quarters. And there are only two conditions: the benevolent deed must be anonymous, and it cannot cost a single penny to pull off.

As the four friends undertake the contest, the healing begins and they become inspired beyond their expectations. There might be a winner in this competition, but it is very clear there will be no losers.

A story of Christmas spirit that will strike a chord in your heart any time of year, The Thursday Night Club will make you look at the holiday season in new ways.

~Review~

**A copy was provided for review purposes**

Steven Manchester did not disappoint with The Thursday Night Club! His writing style is truly unique, and he’s definitely a must read author!

This story is about five college friends who meet every Thursday just to hang out, play cards, chat about school, and enjoy some down time.

One Thursday night Randy, Kevin and Jesse bet $0.75 each to see who can play the funniest prank, specifying that such a plan is not to cause harm/ hurt anyone else. But when the bet takes an accidental turn with the loss of Jesse. The group of friends find it really hard to cope with his loss, Thursday nights just won’t be the same without him.

The story lets you know that life is so risky and so short, and that we all have some good in us, that with just a little effort we can make some sort of difference in the world.This novel shows you that life is about giving, caring, love, friendship, and growth. It’s a really good message to spread around. I really loved this novel and would highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

~Synopsis~

Monica and Alex Waters have spent that last few months working to repair a broken marriage and rekindle their passion. Just as they start finding their spark, Quinn Matthews and his escalating career resurfaces, but this time Alex makes the decision to let Monica go.

The devastation of losing her high school sweetheart, her home, and even her dog twists Monica down a destructive path that alienates her from her closest friends and lands her on Quinn’s couch. Despite her efforts to resist jumping into his arms again, the spark between them reignites and sweeps her away on a whirlwind holiday adventure. She finds that falling in love with Quinn’s family and lifestyle is as easy as falling for his ocean colored eyes. The problem is that it’s all too easy, and when she sees that Quinn’s reinvented life has completely shifted towards her dreams, she starts to question whether he’s too good to be true.

Quinn has a secret that was never meant to be kept this long, but will Monica be able to trust another man who’s lied? And now that Quinn’s got his happily ever after in sight, he’s not about to let her go or share her with another man.

~Book trailer~

~Excerpt~

 (Monica and her husband Alex run into Quinn very unexpectedly)

The outdoor style shopping mall is bustling with tourist and local art lovers. Rows of art galleries surround the courtyard where a stage welcomes a local reggae band. Monica settles into a groove and starts dancing with the crowd. Alex tries to hang in for a couple of songs before he starts feeling claustrophobic and looks to the galleries and shops around them.

“Go ahead,” she says with a loving smile. “I’ll meet you down there… after one more song.”

He gives her a little kiss on the cheek and glides his hand across her behind before making his way out of the crowd. His attention is pulled by various pieces in gallery windows along the way. There’s a large glass sea turtle in shades of green and gold followed by a painting of an autumn forest with heavy texture. He stands daydreaming for a minute until he’s distracted by a reflection passing in the glass. It’s so brief he’s sure it’s his imagination. He barely catches a glimpse down the mall as the backside of the man disappears into another gallery.

Alex follows the ghost, dodging through happy couples and pushy salespeople trying to get his attention. Before he can see inside the gallery, a painting that’s prominently displayed on a front wall stops him. A cold washes over as he stands there staring at it. He slowly moves inside, mesmerized by the familiar vibrant paint strokes until he sees a few people gathered in the back. A man talking to two smiling women stills himself as Alex’s eyes freeze on the back of his shaved head. No words were needed as the tropical air takes a chill. Even the women sense a showdown, and step back to give Quinn room.

Quinn turns. What do I say? Fuck! I thought that was him. I hoped it wasn’t. Quinn moves very slowly towards Alex. Is he gonna hit me? I do deserve it. Might as well get it over with. “Hey.” Quinn pauses near the center of the room waiting.

Alex swallows hard, his nostrils flaring and fist clenched. His jaw flexes as his breathing grows heavier, but the emotions just start to turn to mush. His eyes fill as thoughts of his new friend’s betrayal wash over and the painting draws his eyes again.

“I’m sorry Alex,” Quinn says quietly.

Monica nearly passes the gallery on her way to see their friends when Alex’s shirt first catches her eye. She halts and shifts backwards until she sees the painting and stops. It’s a female figure bent forward reaching for her toes. The abstract form of her body in swirls of orange and reds is cradled by a man swathed in blues and purple. Oh my God! That’s me. That’s us, stretching. It can’t be. He’s…

She struggles for air as the tears swell, and she can already feel him. As she stands there, not crossing the threshold, the two men watch her. When her eyes finally land on Quinn, electricity fills the room. She can only see him and the deep tan that backdrops the pale oceany eyes reaching for her. A warm drop gently slides down her cheekbone as her breathing syncs with his. His lips move slightly hinting at words that he can’t find, and she struggles not to run into his arms.

Alex’s discomfort is audible as he clears his clogged throat to rattle her attention to his worried eyes. She steps in and touches his hand briefly. “I’ll be outside,” she says, turning without another glance at Quinn.

Her feet move quick as her thoughts try to keep up. What are they doing? Alex is gonna hit him. I can’t believe he’s here. What are the odds? Did he know we’d be here? No. Maybe he moved here. That painting was him and I together. Would Alex know that? It’s pretty abstract. Fuck! This can’t be happening. Before she knows it, she’s at the other end of the mall near the parking lot. She settles on a bench to wait for the world to stop crumbling around her.

~Author Interview~

How did you come up with the story?

There is a little bit of real life in the story. I was laid up on the couch for a summer, forced to quit my job, because of three stress fractures in my ankle that wouldn’t heal. I was reading a lot to pass the time and eventually started writing. There really was a sexy neighbor, he really is an artist, but there was never really an affair. Luckily I’m married to a man that finds my overactive imagination amusing and he never once thought it was autobiographic.

So many of the books I was reading had a similar heroine who was “damaged” as well as the same alpha males. I wanted to build characters that were realistic and flawed to see if I could make them sexy as well. People you would know. Your best friend or coworker. Real life is complicated and real love is even worse. I knew Monica wasn’t always going to be likable. As much as we’d like to deny it, most of us aren’t when we’re going through life changes or stressful events. But that wasn’t a reason not to connect to her or even understand her. I didn’t want a woman who just callously throws away her life-long commitment because she needs to have sex. Monica loves her husband. He’s her best friend. But she realizes that she wants more than a friend and Quinn reminds her that she’s more than just this wife.

I struggled with the premise of an artist, because it’s been done so many times and is a little cliche. But I know a lot of real artists, painters, sculptors, whose lives are very free and I wanted Quinn to have that. It’s an element in Monica’s past that she let go of and forgot about. So, I looked at it like another opportunity to take a cliche and make it more realistic. There are secrets behind him that will eventually test her ideas of freedom and trust. It’s all about her growing into who she is supposed to be and finding out in her mid-thirties that she hasn’t been honest with herself.

I set out to create a story that touches on the complications of love and commitment. It’s been an adventure and I’ve learned so much. I never thought it would be a finished novel, much less multiple, but once I got into it I didn’t want to stop. I know I still have a ton to hone and learn, but I’m finding that the challenges of writing are so addictive that I can’t imagine ever quitting now. It’s become my vice I guess. The reality is that I have another career still as a Production Designer and Art Director in film and television so writing does tend to be crammed into my nights and weekends or between shows.

What led you into writing? Was it a lifelong ambition, or the result of some type of turning point in your life?

I’ve been writing casually since I was in fifth grade. My first story was about five fifth grade boys and an escaped con. Stories were the biggest reason I got into the film and television industry, but as a visual person I ended up in the art department. It’s only been the last few years that I was provoked to push myself to write novels.

About Cover Design?

I love designing my own book covers and graphics. I chose the titles of each book based on the literal and emotional condition in Monica Waters’ life. The element that links all three book covers together is the eye and the predominantly white background. I wanted to reflect the voyeurism that runs through Monica’s world, as well as the intense effect Quinn’s blue eyes have one her. Instead of going dark, as erotic covers tend to be, I wanted to connect to the comfort she finds in a white blanket of fog. I was warned that a white cover might not attract the right readers, but I’m not one to shy away from doing things differently.

Through the series each cover slips into a new shade of oceany color that works with the accent images. August Fog was all about San Francisco and the fog that took over when the complicated affair began. December Rain reflects the tears shed and washing away of everything she knew before Quinn. I don’t want to spoil April Snow’s cover yet, but I’ll say that it reflects springing into a new beginning and her growth. Hopefully readers will see the transformation and get the undertones of the story in just a glance.

What are you working on now?

I’m writing the final book in the August Fog series titled April Snow as well as a stand alone novel called Chasing Swells. I’m really excited about Chasing Swells because it’s so different from this series, but it will be a little sad to say goodbye those characters.

What are some of your likes and dislikes?

Likes (or LOVES):

Chocolate – The darker the better!

Cooking – Anything I can do in a dutch oven or cast iron skillet.

Complicated characters with mystery. – Not all has to be unveiled to me.

Movies – I am a film-o-holic.

Laughter – Life is too short to live without it.

Dislikes:

Instant Love in romance novels. (Lust is okay though.)

Overreactions

Assumptions (I’m guilty unfortunately.)

Chardonnay (One bad night can spoil it forever.)

Mean spirited people. (A no brainer though right?)

Tell us one thing about yourself that we wouldn’t know?

I love to build things. I built the decks in our backyard by myself. It started as a dare, but I did it.

If there was one thing you could tell your readers, what would it be?

Thank you. Thank you for giving some of your time to hang out with me and my characters.

~Author Bio~

A.L. GouldenI’m a designer, author, wife and dog-lover living in the South Pasadena area of California. I got my BFA in Film Production from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, but my love of a good story came way before college. I remember writing my first full story in fifth grade on a typewriter. I cut and pasted it into a book, complete with cardboard cover and taped binding. Things have changed a lot since then. With the magnificent digital age I can produce books and give them to the world without a sticky mess.

In college numerous instructors and peers praised my dialogue pushed me to hone my storytelling skills. Of course the need to cut and paste was still there, so I went into the world of Production Design and Art Direction for films and television. It gave me the ability to connect design to storytelling in a way that no other career can. The past 18 years have spun a unique perspective on visually emotional tales of relationships and the thread that ties all things together. Now I’m shifting focus on the driving force that brought me here… stories. I hope that I can share a unique perspective on life, love and the pursuit in all of the above.

~Excerpt~

The night air welcomed me with its light chill. I breathed in its crispness and took in my surroundings.

We were walking on a levitated platform toward a row of hooded figures dressed in black.

I could hear drums beating, their rhythm entering my limbs, pumping in my blood and quickening my pulse.

There was an urgency to the vibrations I felt beneath my feet and in my eardrums. Something primal.

One of the hooded figures stepped closer to us, and we were each given an unlit candle.

Mine was creamy white and quite broad, its scent musky.

I was surprised to find it oddly comforting.

I looked up as another podium was raised before us, and then the chanting began—just as Lydia had hoped.

By the new podium were three figures dressed in red cloaks and holding hands in a circle.

Glowing in the air between them was a white fire with no apparent base. It simply lingered in the air.

After a moment, the white fire blazed bright, and our candles flickered to life.

There were gasps in our midst, but I found this type of thing typical and a tad boring. Candles? Really?

A second-grader could make a candle light itself. Heck, even I could master that.

The three red-cloaked figures began rising in the air with no apparent assistance from a broom or carpet. They turned to face us, opening to a row as the middle figure began speaking.

“On the third moon cycle of each season, we welcome into our midst the chosen ones,” a man’s voice boomed.

Me? A chosen one? Really?
Chosen for what, was my next question.
“We have hand-picked you all to come before us here tonight to initiate the worthy to join our ranks,” a woman’s voice blasted beside him.
Initiate the worthy? Did he mean the trials Charlie had mentioned? My stomach dropped.

I didn’t fare well in tests ofany kind . . . .

“There will be five phases you must pass before you can become one of us,” the third person said, though I could not make out the gender.

“For the first,” the man boasted, “you must pass through fire.”

Um . . . excuse me. Human flesh here, party of one . . . no fire-protective gear in my bag (though, surprisingly, at home I had quite the variety—a necessary expense given my tendency to zap when nervous) . . . no bag whatsoever, come to think of it.

I tapped the red-haired handler on the shoulder.

He swiveled his head around and glared at me. His finger was planted firmly over his mouth, motioning for me to be silent.

“But . . . ,” I stammered, as a growing need brought itself to my attention. “Um . . . where are the bathrooms?” I asked, wanting a moment alone to clear my mind and think if I really wanted to join this group.

After all, I didn’t know anything about them, and I didn’t really jell with all the wiccans in my school anyway, and these folks were most likely related to them, so they were guilty by association, right?

There was no need for any fire trials for me to comprehend that . . . .
“Try not to die,” the handler whispered, then turned his head around to face the three. What? Die? When did that become part of the curriculum? I didn’t come here to die . . . .

RJ_AuthorPicI was born in Cardiff, South Wales although I left to study law at the University of Bristol, England. Four weeks before graduation I fell in love, and stayed. Ten years later I convinced my crazy, wonderful fire fighter husband to move back to Cardiff with me where we live with our two equally crazy sons. Juggling work, writing and family doesn’t leave a lot of time, but curling up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a bar of chocolate for family movie night is definitely the best part of my week. “The Hurricane” is my debut New Adult Novel
