Genre: Comedy Anthology
Release Date: July 25, 2017
Everyone just stop for one bleeping minute so we can all get real with each other. Being a mom is some tough $#!â . You're constantly wearing questionable substances that make you ask, "is this chocolate or ... oh, crap ..." and your purse is merely a receptacle for three-week-old snacks and broken crayons.
Let's be honest ... even when we're doing this âmomâ thing right, we're somehow doing it completely wrong.
Pardon us while we dust off our collective Mother of the Year trophy and proudly present you with an epic anthology of #MOMFAILS.
*Stories inspired by real life (unless youâre a cop, then itâs all complete fiction). Names and situations have been changed to protect the guilty (and by guilty, we mean the moms). Because motherhood is a battlefield and we're all just trying to survive by any means necessary.
Featuring this amazing lineup: Alissa York, A.M. Willard, BL Berry, Carina Adams, Claudia Burgoa, Crystal Burnette, Dylan Allen, Faith Andrews, Gia Riley, J.A. DeRouen, Kate Anslinger, Leddy Harper, LK Collins, LL Collins, Marie James, Piper Rayne, Riann C. Miller, Shari J. Ryan, Stephanie Rose, Stephie Walls, SM West, TL Swan, Teresa Michaels, and foreword written by: Nicole Kane Knepper

Title: Ripple Effect
Author: Keri Lake
Genre: Dark Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 25, 2017
They call me RIP.
Iâm a killer. A murderer. A psychopath.
In the eyes of the righteous, Iâm a monster, born of sin and depravity.
I want to protect her, but Iâm not a good man.
I want to love her, but I no longer feel.
She gets under my skin, though, and has awakened something inside of me.
Something Iâd kill for.
Iâm not her saviorânot even close. In fact, Iâm worse than the hell sheâs already suffered.
Iâm her vengeance. Tit for tat, as they say.
And if sheâs not careful, Iâll be her ruin.
For months, Iâve watched him.
Iâve fantasized him as my savior, my lover. My ticket out of the hell Iâve lived in for the last six years.
I never dreamed heâd be my nightmare.
Had I known what he really is, Iâd have never gotten in the car that night, but life is full of cause and effect.
And sometimes the choice on offer isnât a choice at all.
Itâs the result of something already in motion, and weâre merely left to survive the ripple effect.
Keri Lake is a dark romance writer who specializes in demon wrangling, vengeance dealing and wicked twists. Her stories are gritty, with antiheroes that walk the line of good and bad, and feisty heroines who bring them to their knees. When not penning books, she enjoys spending time with her husband, daughters, and their rebellious Labrador (who doesnât retrieve a damn thing). She runs on strong coffee and alternative music, loves a good red wine, and has a slight addiction to dark chocolate.
Jeanette's Review of Ripple Effect by Keri Lake
Ripple Effect: A Novel by Keri Lake
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ripple Effect is so dark, dirty, and twisted that it will have you questioning your sanity about falling for this book boyfriend. Ripley is a HOT as hell, cold hearted, trained killer and Dylan is a beautiful, young woman that has had the most effed up childhood. When these two troubled souls find each other...things start to heat up and are explosive at times.
I loved every single moment of this darkest of dark reads. The storyline is like no other that I have read and the subject that it touches on of human trafficking...something that many may not know that sadly happens everyday in our world that no one wants to talk about. This author brings it into this book with so much eye opening information on this subject. I was blown away by the way that Keri Lake not only touches on this subject, but really goes into the how and why this is happening in our world today. Very eye opening!!
I love the darkest of dark reads, this was my first one from this author and has become one of my favorites. Ripley and Dylan's story left me wanting more of their story.
I highly recommend that if you love a dark read that you read this one!!!
Happy Reading Everyone!!!

Everything you've always thought was true isn't quite so clear anymore.
I've always hated Marcus Colter. I have since high school. We antagonize each other every time we meet, and I thought our dislike was mutual, until he ends up saving my life on a suicide mission to rescue me from my captors, men who would have killed me if not for Marcus. Everything that happens after that successful, crazy, and dangerous mission confuses me.
Turns out, not only is Marcus incredibly brave, but he also has a gruff kindness that I never knew existed. His quiet strength sees me through my pain and fear after he pulls me out of the danger zone.
I'm not sure what to think of Marcus Colter anymore.
He's still the bossy alpha male who drives me crazy, but I eventually discover that there's so much more to Marcus than what's on the surface.
Apparently, I've never known the real Marcus Colter.
Maybe nobody does...

He's a fighter...
And he never gives up.
After giving the last sixteen years of his life to Uncle Sam, Lark Shelton finally puts down his gun and hangs up his uniform. Opening The Landing Strip bar with his two best friends and brothers at arms seems like the perfect escape from his past.

Free in Kindle Unlimited
(Warning: Sexual Situation and Adult Language)
I want to taste her, have her flavor in my mouth. This is something I do not do. At least, not in a long damn time. I fuck. I do it hard and fast, getting my partner and myself off as quickly as possible. With other women, there is no damn way I would have even considered putting my mouth where so many others have been before. With Paisley, itâs different. I want to know all of her, every damn inch.
Grabbing the sides of her panties, I wait for her to lift her ass and pull them down her legs. When I finally lay eyes on her glistening pussy, my mouth begins to water. Her lips are a pretty shade of pink with her excitement causing them to glisten with need. Her clitâ¦ Fuck, itâs amazing. Itâs deep red, standing proud, and begging for my attention.
I open her up with my fingers, sliding them from top to bottom. I coat them with her juices and slowly push one inside of her. I add another and move them in and out of her depths. Sheâs tight, so fucking tight that my cock thumps against my zipper, wanting to get loose.
When she starts to whimper, I pull them out and reach up to give her clit a gentle twist. I finally lower my head, getting my first taste of her, and nearly lose my fucking mind. Her flavor is outstanding, amazing, like manna from heaven. Itâs like nothing I have ever tasted before. There is no way to label it, other than simply delicious.
I slide my fingers into her again, crooking them just enough to add to her pleasure. My mouth goes to her clit, sealing over it and sucking it deep into my mouth. When my teeth graze over her nub, her ass raises off the desk and she lets out a moan.
âYes!â she shouts, throwing her head back. âJust like that.â
I keep up my assault, gliding my fingers in and out, faster and faster. I suck harder, using my teeth to add to the pleasure. Within seconds, she starts to contract around my fingers. Sheâs close, so fucking close. I want to get her there, have her come from just my mouth and fingers. Then later, I want her to do it again around my cock. Biting down with a little more force, I add a touch of pain to the game and push her over the edge.
âOh my God,â she moans as she convulses around my fingers. âLark.â
I smile around her clit and give it one more swipe of my tongue. After another few seconds, not wanting to cut her pleasure short, I slowly slide my fingers out. I give her sensitive pussy a quick pat and bring my fingers to my mouth to get one last taste of her before standing up. Once Iâm on my feet again, I reach around and pull out my wallet.
âHate to disappoint you, mon cheri, but Iâm not God.â Taking out a condom, I shoot her a wink. âJust a simple man.â

Last Call by Shelley Springfield
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Last Call is one of those books that you pick up and don't want to put down until your finished. It's sweet and sexy read with awesome characters. Three friends open a bar after retiring from the service. This is one of their stories.
After sixteen years in the service , with no family to return to, Lark opens a bar with his two best buddies. Never getting serious with woman he basically hits and quits them. Until one woman catches his eye things are never the same from him.
Paisley hasn't been in a serious relationship in three years. Not since she caught her ex in bed with one of her best friends. Not even really open to dating until one persistent man came into her life.
These two have insanely hot chemistry and I absolutely loved their story. Not only is it sexy, also throw some crazy in there. The authors did a fantastic job telling this story and I am hoping we get more from The Landing Strip.

HIS FIGHT TO BE WHOLE
Years ago, Solomon LaRue’s life was ripped apart when his fiancée was taken from him brutally and without cause. After, he vowed to never love again and put all of his energy into defending New Orleans from the evil Voodoo priestess out to destroy everything he held dear. Until a beautiful and maddening witch from the Quarter comes into his life and shakes everything up. Now, he thinks of nothing but her, and despite the dangers surrounding his family, he can’t help but alter his plans to make sure she stays safe. At all costs.
HER REASON FOR BEING
For most of her life, Minka Verdin thought she was nothing more than a gifted fortune teller until a life-altering experience brought her into her powers. Now, honed and hardened to be the weapon she knows she can be, she has no time for lust and love in her life. Unfortunately, a certain sexy-as-sin werewolf occupies her thoughts—and her heart—day in and day out. Minka knows that the survival of many is always more important than the safety of one, and she is more than willing to sacrifice herself so that those she loves remain untouched. But Solomon is having none of that and reminds her that there is no force as strong as the magic between them
ADD TO YOUR TBR - http://bit.ly/2tbLkUF
Was it worse to want someone you couldn’t have? Or to never know that kind of longing?
Minka wasn’t sure which was more awful. She knew that no matter how much she hungered for Solomon’s touch or craved his attention, that she would never be his. That kind of knowledge did strange things to a person.
Her heart had jumped in her throat to find him there. It had felt like forever since she’d seen his face and those brilliant blue eyes. All the and had them, but Solomon’s were brighter than the others’.
And his hair. The dark blond strands were laced with pale brown that made her want to sink her hands into the locks.
His face was all hard angles and ruggedness that she longed to touch and kiss. The shadow of dark whiskers on his jaw made her stomach flutter and her skin prickle with awareness.
Then there was that body of his. Could anyone wear jeans like Solomon? The denim clung to his trim waist and hips, curving over his fine ass before encasing his long legs. Though it was his ability to wear a plain white shirt over the impeccably hard sinew of his chest and wide shoulders that could make her heart miss a beat.
He was simply mouth-watering. The complete package...and utterly out of reach.

“The Waves of Love Can Make You Sick”
A Reckless Series Spin-off
A Romantic Comedy
Memphis Love knows three things.
As long as it has a pond for him to dip his pole into, he’s game, and he doesn’t stick to just one pond for his fishing trips either.
The small, beach town he lives in doesn’t offer much for job opportunities or at least lucrative ones. He relies on his body, the pole, and stage. Oh, and the after hour clients.
Iris, his best after hour customer, takes him on a yearly cruise with her friends. He’s there for one purpose and one purpose only…their boy toy.
Memphis is no fool. A two week, all paid cruise to soak up the sun and sights is a no brainer. Only thing is he didn’t expect a little ray of sunshine on the ship this year. Raylan Moore has the power to rattle everything he once believed.
The doctor is in; he’s willing, able and ready to please. Dr. Love has the cure to your Love Sick (offset in a different font) blues, only this time maybe he’s the one needing the healing.

I lie back in the lounger, finding the perfect snooze zone again while soaking up the rays. Then I hear it. The hairs on the back of my neck stand on end. Every single inch of my body is on alert. I sit right back up, pulling down my Ray-Bans on the bridge of my nose.
I smile like the victor of Titty Mania 2017. Give me the belt, bitches. Hand it right over. She didn’t fall into my lap this time. Nope, it’s so much sweeter because I spot her before she attacks.
Raylan. She's standing at the bar fifty feet away. Her head is thrown back in laughter. A damn fruity drink is in her hand. Her girls at her side are making her laugh at something. It’s a lingering suspicion, but I know Raylan is never this carefree. The edge of a hot tub is feet away. It’s not her clumsiness I’m studying, but what she’s wearing.
Or should I say what she’s not wearing? That scrappy piece is a poor excuse for a damn top. I know what’s under it or at least half of it. She has one of those fancy, see through skirts tied around her lower half. The knot is settled nicely on her hip.
It would take one nip of my teeth to undo it. Fuck, I wouldn’t have to take her bikini bottoms off to taste her. I bet she’s as sweet as those damn drinks she loves.
I peer over to the voice ready to glare at the bastard interrupting my daydream, hot shower research supplying spank bank material. But it’s a little boy pointing right at me.
“That man has Wi-Fi.”
I squint my eyes trying to put together what the hell is going. He begins racing over to me chanting Wi-Fi.
I peer down to see if the little bandit is planning to nab any of my personal items. Kids these damn days are too smart for their good. It’s then I see the Wi-Fi. Spandex and a raging cock are not the right combination and a clear signal for Wi-Fi according to young children. The size of my engorged dick could guide astronauts home from Jupiter.
What has this clumsy girl done to me? I’m a global threat at this point. Draining my remaining drink, I find the perfect excuse to stride right over to the bar where the group of girls are still chatting it up. Hell, Raylan doesn’t notice all the men checking her out. Her friend, Brenna, has at least double Ds and I’d bet my left nut they’re fake. She’s the type the majority of men magnetize to, but not with Raylan next to her. Josi, I’m pretty sure that was her name, is also a knockout with fake assets and plump injected lips. But it’s none of that which attracts me.
The fuck? I don’t remember any female names, and here I’m studying Raylan and her friends like a first rate stalker. I saddle up to the bar, blocking the group of dickheads drinking in Raylan. My size and width get the job done.
“Another, hun?” the busty bartender asks.
I keep up the smolder showdown giving it to her smooth. “Please, darlin’.”
That does the trick. I hear one of the girls squeal. I know it’s not Raylan but not sure which one it is.
“Raylan.” I hear a loud skin slap, but I don’t look, pretending to eye down the bartender. “It’s him.”
Another voice joins. “It is Raylan. Holy shit, he’s on the cruise.”
Hook, line, and sinker.
“Who?” Raylan asks. Hell, her voice erects the Eiffel Tower in a matter of seconds.
“I’d say nipple gate 2017, but it was more of Tit Show Gate 2017 live and in action.”
There’s an audible gasp. I can feel her gaze soaking up the front view leaning on the bar. My elbow is propped on the smooth wood and my face is in the direction of the back shelf with my legs crossed at the ankles. Most men would flex their muscles right now, putting them in the douche category permanently. I remain calm, playing to ignore the conversation.
I’m betting today they’ve had a few to drink since their voices are not a whisper when they think they are.
“You were right about his wiener. It was not your imagination.”
I stifle laughter at that one.
“Don’t say wiener; we aren’t ten years old anymore.”
“I told you it was huge.”
And there’s my cue. I stand slowly, paying attention to each move of my body, grab my drink from the bar, and make eye contact. They react as suspected, ducking their heads and blushing like fools.

EXCERPT FROM LOST & FOUND
“Hey handsome.” One of the three girls slides in between J.D. and me. She leans into me, her hand gripping my bicep. I can smell the heavy perfume that surrounds her. “Whatcha drinkin’?”
She smiles sweetly, but I can’t be deceived with sweet innocent smiles, especially not when at the same time, she is showing me not just a good amount of cleavage with her lacy bra, but also pressing her boobs against my upper arm.
Money, fame, and sex—I’ve been in the world of professional football for a few years now, and I know how to recognize girls who are interested in one out of three or all three things, not necessarily in that order.
“Beer,” I say, rolling my eyes in my mind. It’s not like I’m not holding a bottle right in my hand. “Want some?”
She bats her long eyelashes and gives me a sly smile.
They all discuss what they want to drink and she gets on her toes to get closer to my ear so I can hear her better, pressing her whole body into mine. I offer to go get it, just so I can move from the table for a few minutes and breathe something not as intoxicating as her strong perfume.
“I’ll go with you,” J.D. says, and we both start walking through the crowd to the nearest bar.
We don’t make it but a few steps before I hear Matt calling after us.
I turn around and see him signal for another round for them too. Just as I continue after J.D., I feel a small body collide with mine.
Everything happens so fast.
I put one hand on her stomach, and with my other, I catch her hand to steady her. Long strands of dark hair caress my hand. They are soft and silky, and I feel heat and electricity running through my body.
She is so small, some would say tiny even. The top of her head doesn’t quite reach my chin. Even in a club with smoke, alcohol, and sweat, I can smell her fresh scent, sweet and flowery.
For a nanosecond, I meet her gaze.
Despite the dark, I can see her eye color—it’s the prettiest, strangest shade of blue I’ve ever seen in my life—piercing, dark, and shiny.
And then she is gone.
