Hate to Love You, an all-new standalone from New York Times Bestseller Tijan is available NOW!
Hate to Love You by Tijan Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: August 28th
Rule #1: No hot guys.
It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of is, but college was supposed to be my sanctuary. It was my place to start over. The rumors, the whispers, and the jealousy I endured through high school would all be gone.
No one would know me at college.
Rule #2: No drama.
I’d major in pre-law. I’d make a few loyal friends. Everything would be easy breezy. No one was going to use me or hurt me. I wouldn’t let them.
Rule #3: New year. New place. New me.
And all because of Shay Coleman.
Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. I hated him on sight . . .
. . . and he was about to break all my rules.
Excerpt:I was almost grinning from delight as I shoved open the back door. If I hit him, hey, all was fair in the war we were fighting of who could piss each other off the best. It didn’t. He was leaning against the wall, the back of his head resting on the brick, and he looked over to smirk at me. “I want to see your room.” I thrust my hand out. “I’ll take those notes.” That smirk just widened. He patted his bag and pushed off from the wall. “They’re in my email. I need to get on a computer.” He patted my arm and moved past me, heading inside. “I can use yours.” “Hey!” I followed him in. He was looking up the stairs. “Sabrina said you were on the fourth floor. You saw my place. I want to see yours. It’s only fair.” He wasn’t waiting for my go-ahead. He was already up and rounding second floor to third. He’d be at my floor before I could get there. “Stop! I am not okay with this.” He was at the third-floor door. He glanced down with that same goddamn smirk. “Better tell me which room or I’m going to hang out in the hallway.” “Why are you always smirking? Is it permanently attached to your face?” “What room, Clarke?” He was at my hallway door. Fucking hell. I gritted my teeth. “Wait. Just wait. My door automatically locks.” He’d opened the door but let it shut. Waiting as I covered the last set of stairs, I refused to let him see me panting. I stood there, purposely holding my breath until he narrowed his eyes and cocked his head to the side. “Breathe, Clarke. You’re going to pass out.” I almost burped out the small pocket of air I’d been holding. “I hate you so much.” “Yeah, yeah.” He waved that off. “We get it. Eternal damnation in hell, the whole shebang. Whatever.” He nodded to the door. “Stop stalling. I want to see your room.” I was picturing pitchforks and fire. Maybe that was the burning smell he mentioned. It was hell, and all the fire in there. I yanked the door, glaring as I did. “Was this Sabrina’s idea?” “Nope. All mine.” He was right behind me. I could feel his breathing. “She refused to tell me your room number, said I had to call.” My eyes widened at the thought of him coming up by himself, strolling down the hallway, and then knocking on my door. Good Lordy gracious. Too many would’ve seen him at my door. I would’ve been the talk of the dorm. I shuddered, unlocked, and entered my room.

Hate to Love You by Tijan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I took my time reading Hate to Love You because I didn't want it to end. This was just what I needed, in true Tijan fashion we have a wonderful read with awesome characters.
Shay is the quarterback for his college football team. Everyone loves him, every girl wants him but he's not interested in a relationship. Kennedy has goals... staying to herself, maybe having one friend and definitely no guys, especially popular good looking guys they are totally off limits. But there he is.... Shay. She immediately hates him....
I loved this book. It is a standalone but I'm hoping that Tijan will take pity on is and gives us more from these characters. The story is full of such great characters and I loved them all. The writing is phenomenal and the story was incredible.

I love this series and was so excited for Rowdy's book. Of course it was everything I was hoping it would be. After spending eight years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, Rowdy had nothing to come home to. He lost his wife, had no family and needed to start over. A unlikely friend helped him he get justice and gave him a family. Years later he comes face to face with a ghost. He will do anything to get his life back.
I love Chelsea's books. She writes some of the best stories out there and always has interesting loving characters. This book has revenge, heartbreak and forgiveness. You'll definitely want to read it.

âPretty sure itâs a yacht.â
âNope. Itâs a boat.â
âWhyâs there a yacht-like boat in the combat zone?â

âWithin the parameters of our war games with the Brits?â
âDoes it matter?â
âOi, Earp. Get your twats to shut the bloody hell up, will you? Theyâre clogging up our airwaves. Are they comedians or soldiers?â The dry humour in Hamish Rossâs voice echoed loudly in Wyattâs ear where heâd been working valiantly to ignore the chatter from his team. âYou listening?â
âWeâre Navy SEALs, Hamster, not soldiers. We leave that grunt shit to you.â Wyatt couldnât help needling his old friend and SAS counterpart. Theyâd worked together multiple times over the years, sharing secrets, wounds, and beers. âHey, Ross, any clue why thereâs a vessel in our designated dive area?â
âNone.â Hamish spoke in muffled tones to someone, and a long silence stretched before he returned to Wyatt. âShouldnât be there, Earp. Weâre picking up four warm bodies on the thermal camera.

So, for me to say that I really REALLY loved it, well, says something!.â â Mrs M D Attenborough â Amazon Reviewer.

Title: Two Bit
Series: Satan's Fury MC #7
Author: L. Wilder
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: August 22, 2017
L. Wilder has really knocked it out of the park with this installment in the Satan's Fury MC series. This gritty, sexy, thriller will leave you breathless and begging for more.- Author RB Hilliard
This is my FAVORITE story from Ms Wilder to date. It kept me on the edge of my seat with its aggressive undertones and dark storyline. -Cali Gals Book Blog
Another great read by L. Wilder. This author knows how to bring memorable characters to life and keep readers on the edge of their seats.- Jenerated Reviews
Author L. Wilder has taken us on a trip into the dark world of the Satan's Fury MC. This read will leave you sitting on the edge of your seats. Definitely a 5 star must read addition to this addictive series- BookClub Gone Wrong.
There's always a bit of an edge to L. Wilder's writing, but it was definitely more pronounced here, and Two Bit is, by far, the grittiest MC story she's written to date. - Danielle D. Palumbo
If you like hot bikers this is definitely the book to read. -Billie Compton
I have never seen the brothers of Satan's Fury MC,collectively and on their own, in such a focused, determined, and revengeful state. The end result??!!! This book is BADA$$!- Lisa C.
Two Bit made me speechless. I just keep drooling here thinking of him. - Nearing BookAddict
I've never been one to hold back. I’ve always said what was on my mind – right or wrong – and earned my name because of it. Giving my two cents hasn’t always been a good thing, but on one fateful night, it led me to her. She was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of girl. Undeniably beautiful. Fearless. Unforgettable.
I wanted her, but getting mixed up with her nearly cost me my life.
I tried to fight it. I tried to save myself from the flame... but after one touch, I knew there was no turning back.
Zoe would be mine.
Sometimes, you’ve got to hit rock bottom before you can find a way to move forward. Well, it’s time for me to find a way to move forward, because I’ve sure as hell hit rock bottom.
My father, the president of the Chosen Knights, died and left me a legacy I didn't want. The club was supposed to be my family, but with my father gone, they’d gotten tangled up in things I wanted no part of. I wanted out, free from the torment, but I was stuck with no money and no place to go. I’d thought all hope was gone.
Until he walked into the bar.
As if he’d stepped out of my dreams, he was everything I’d ever wanted. Handsome. Courageous. Passionate.
Being with him came at a price – a price I wasn’t sure either of us could pay.
When sparks fly and ignite a war, who will be left standing in the ashes?
Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Two Bit: Satan's Fury MC by L. Wilder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I devoured this in one sitting! It was that good. That's the thing about L Wilder's books. They grab you, pull you in and totally consume you. Two Bit and Zoe are great characters and I loved their story
Zoe grew up in the club life, when her father died she was destroyed and the life edge knew was over. Devastated that she was going to have to do something that she couldn't stomach, a white knight comes to her rescue.
Two Bit always had a problem of keeping his mouth shut and minding his own business so when he sees a damsel in distress he knows he has to intervene. Only thing.....when he gets to know this beauty he may have to keep her
This book has it all!! Revenge,sex and greed. I love this authors stories and the way that she tells them. And this is just another great read to add to her others. If you haven't checked her books out you are definitely missing out!
Encore, an all-new sexy and emotional M/M love story from Ruth Clampett is available now!
Encore by Ruth Clampett Publication Date: August 17th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance
When shy programmer, Charlie, is dragged to a Hollywood male revue by his co-workers, the last thing he expects is to be pulled onstage. But when he’s approached by Ramon, a dancer whose only focus is to bring him pleasure, something awakens in Charlie that can’t be denied.
Heated attraction only goes so far when one man dreams of true love and a life finally fulfilled, and the other is still grieving the one he lost, and the mistake that cost him everything.
Can a realist and a dreamer from two different worlds move forward and build a future together, or will their painful pasts keep them from fulfilling their destiny?
Excerpt:There’s another round of cat-calls from the pent up audience when the dancers step to the front of the stage and dance provocatively to amp up the viewers. Suddenly they split apart again and move toward us. My mind is momentarily jumbled, and when the images sort themselves I realize that instead of the woman, the male dancer is approaching me. I can’t help but stare at his incredible body as my gaze slowly works it’s way up from his muscular thighs, to his abs, built chest and shoulders and when I get to his face I realize I’m blinking repeatedly. The confusion that must be evident in my expression apparently is amusing, because he nods at me before leaning in closer and I feel a flush from his hot breath against my ear. “Hey, Prince Charlie … ready to have some fun?” I can feel my eyes bug out and a lump form in my throat. It is him. “Ramon?” I ask in a strangled voice. “The one and only,” he answers with a wink. “I thought you could use a little loosening up.” He widens his legs and steps closer, straddling me and running his fingers through my hair while he slowly rotates his hips. “You’re gay?” I ask, my mouth gaping open. His bold laugh makes my cheeks feel hot. “Oh, baby,” he whispers. “You’re so damn cute. Ask me again when I’m done with you.” He gives me a sexy smile and then slowly rocks his hips forward making me want to rip his briefs off. “Oh God, oh God, oh God.” I whisper, feeling like my face is on fire. He backs away again to dance around me, brushing his hand over my shoulders and down my thighs while he moves. Every sweep of his touch excites me until I’m sizzling like a lit fuse. I’ve never seen anyone other than on music videos who could dance with such a natural rhythm and sexual vibe. He turns toward the audience partway through the dance and then bends forward so his ass is presented to me and I’m in agony not to touch it. He has the most perfect gorgeous ass I’ve ever seen. I get harder thinking about what it would be like in this moment if we were alone, and he wasn’t wearing the tiny briefs. Oh God. I think with a sigh. I’m trying to hide as best I can how turned-on I am. Has there ever been more proof that it’s not a woman that I want in my bed, but a man like Ramon? I’m having trouble catching my breath when he straightens and swivels, then straddles my legs as he thrusts his hips bringing his bulge tauntingly close to my face. Shifting back until he’s almost sitting on my knees, he slowly drags his way up my thighs until his ass is against my crotch and he sinks down firmly enough to know I’m painfully hard for him. The edges of his mouth turn up with delight. “Damn, Charlie,” he says. “You feel so fucking good.”

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
M/M books are one of my favorite genres so I was very excited to read Encore, the author is a new author to me and I absolutely love finding new authors to read. With that being said I was a little disappointed with this book. I really loved the characters and I felt like I bonded with them and enjoyed them but the story seemed to drag out for me. I actually got lost a couple of times and my mind started wandering. The book just couldn't seem to hold my attention very well. I am looking forward to reading something else by this author, I'm thinking that maybe this story just wasn't for me.

About the Book:
Check out the other books in the Love on the Vine series:
I can’t stand silence, it drives me crazy. So I’m a talker. I’m a gabber. I’m what they call… social. I pin things, I share things, I plus things. I like, I follow, and I comment.
But most of all… I tweet. I’m a tweeter. I live for the Twitter. I chirp good morning like a little blue bird from my bed in the AM and then chirp good evening again every night.
Even before social media took over the world I was this girl. From my very first year I have been one of those butterflies. Yes—I’m putting my hand up to stop the protests—my very first year. Because my first birthday picture was of me whispering a secret into my big brother’s ear.
And after social media took over the world I embraced this girl. My bestie, Bebe, and I have this whole social thing down to a science. We are the champions of chatter, the proponents of prattle, the backers of blather. We are the goddesses of gossip and we own this shit. We take bubbly optimism to a whole new virtual level. Our motto is Happiness is a #Hashtag and we live life knowing the fairy tale is possible, even if you only get it online.
Who needs reality anyway? Reality is being orphaned at thirteen. Reality is foster homes and loneliness. Reality is a risk ripe for disappointment.
But thank God for Bebe and her family. They welcomed me in with open arms and instead of something tragic, I became the poster child for surviving and came out the other end not only intact, but better than ever.
But back to my mouth—and by extension, my fingertips since they do all my talking on Twitter—it has a mind of its own.
And that mind is very dirty.
Yes, my name is Grace Kinsella and I’m a filthy tweeter.
I can turn a hundred and forty characters into living sex. I can string words together in a way that will make you wet your panties with lust. I can make a man blush before he even gets to the hashtag. I am famous for pithy filth.
In fact, my girlfriends and I have an online Facebook group called the Filthy Blue Birds. And we’re not the only ones. The world of pithy filth is booming, friends. There are endless groups like ours. There are legions of shy girls who come alive when faced with the hundred-and-forty-character challenge. And there is a very special place online where we meet, challenging each other to achieve a new level of smexy typing.
I’ll stop here to take a bow.
Besides being a list, Dirty Heaven is an online competition that happens on Twitter every Saturday night across the world—yes, we have filthy tweeters from all walks of life. At 8 PM Eastern the FT’s come alive and each league puts up their best and brightest. You get one tweet, one hashtag, and one chance to shine.
I don’t win anymore, it’s simply not fair. I’m now the judge. But back when we were first putting this together my tweets took me to Dirty Heaven time after time after time. That’s back when we used to have the competitions nightly and the group was small. Just fifteen or twenty of my closest online stranger friends. Each competition we had an online muse and we took turns choosing who would benefit from our blush-inducing prose. Sometimes the girls picked models or rock stars.
I only ever had one muse and his name is Vaughn Asher.
Yes, the Vaughn Asher. A Hollywood legend. He started out in the boy band 2 Far Out, then when his angelic voice changed as he hit puberty he graduated into Disney sitcoms. Most child actors would fade after that, never able to make the transition. But Vaughn Asher doubled down on the workouts—gaining the title of Most Envied Body in Hollywood six years in a row from Buzz Hollywood Magazine—and the preteen wannabe turned into an action-hero heartthrob overnight.
Just thinking his name makes me sigh. He’s so freaking gorgeous. That messy dark hair that makes him look like he just rolled out of bed. Those tight abs that just make you want to drag your tongue all over them to see if they taste as good as they look. And that package, boy. He’s never done any nudes so I have to use my imagination, but my imagination is vivid. I have a very clear picture.
Besides, you know what they say about a man’s thumbs, right? Well, Vaughn Asher has incredible thumbs. And large feet. They say that too.
Yes, doing filthy things to his six-foot-two frame has been my idea of Dirty Heaven for almost three years now. I’d like to say I’ve said everything imaginable about him, but that’s not true. I never run out of ideas. It’s like my brain only exists to compose a one-hundred-and-forty-character sentence that will turn him red.
That’s my fantasy. That’s my fairy tale. Vaughn Asher doing things to me that can only be said in a hashtag.

Fear keeps the truth away from his brothers. Fear and pain keeps him away from the man he loves. Hawks MC member Maddox “Beast” Lawson had a difficult time growing up. Tired of being ridiculed because of his effed-up brain-to-mouth connection, it was easier to say nothing at all. Living in silence worked out just fine until that b*tch called Fate took his hearing, not only that, but she also threw him into the arms of the man who refuses to acknowledge that one hot night they shared. Jay Conger, Knife to his brothers, loves pussy. Licking, fingering, screwing, he’ll take it any way it’s offered. After one surprising night with Beast, to say he’s freaked out is an understatement. Hell, even bananas have taken on a new meaning, and thinking about a certain someone’s body is too much. Unable to think straight, Knife is at an impasse, not only with his traitorous desire but with his heart. Both lives are going to change. Only will it be for the better?
Lila was born in Brisbane Australia, her step-dad was in the Army which caused them to move around a lot. They finally settled in country Victoria, Australia. Being the youngest of four children she admits she was spoilt a bit. Even drove her mum crazy when she refused to eat meat at a young age.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Really enjoyed it!
I love MC books, the only genre I love more is m/m so when I get a chance to read a book where those cross I jump on it. I was a little worried because I haven't read the others in this series and even though it was advertised as a standalone I was still worried. I was pleasantly surprised because I didn't feel left out at all. Yes, now I want to go back and read the others in this series but this truly can be read as a standalone.
The characters Knife and Beast are wonderful, both have there own baggage which in turn gives us a great story. My heart ached for Beast and I truly fell in love with him. Knife had me laughing so hard, he's a fun loving awesome character also. Their story held my attention throughout the book and the writing was fantastic. It's a definite must read.
