Release Day Blitz ... Drawn to You by Ker Dukey

D2U Blitz  Banner

D2U Blitz Excerpt

Oh, perfect I just get back from a run with sweaty hair, wet and hanging loose from the hair band attempting but failing to keep it in place. I’m wearing sweats and an old Muse t-shirt with a stain on it from spilt juice, and who’s sitting looking perfect in a suit and tie, tapping away at his laptop?

Mr sexy/annoying as hell Finlay, that’s who. He gets up and knocks back whatever is in his mug, closing his computer, and smirks as he takes in my attire. “There’s eggs still hot on the stove. Help yourself, and tell Gaby I won’t be back for dinner.” He waltzes past me, his scent hitting me in the face like invisible mist …delicious scented mist.

“Do I look like your secretary?” I mumble over my shoulder, grabbing a bottle of water I’d left on the counter from earlier then guzzling it down. The warm palm hitting my ass cheek causes a screech to choke out of me and water to spurt everywhere. 

Warm air hits my earlobe as Finlay whispers, “No, you definitely do not look like my secretary.”

Did he really slap my butt?

“Hang on. Is that an insult or a compliment?” I call after him as he chuckles and shuts the front door behind him. Looking down at my outfit, I scrunch my nose up. I need some new clothes and I need to kick his ass for slapping mine.

D2U Blitz Synopsis

Moving away to the States offers her a fresh start; however, confident, successful Finlay Hayes, her best friend’s Brother adds even more chaos to her already turbulent emotions. When she can't decide between ripping him a new one or ripping his clothes off, one thing is for sure, they both have an unquenchable craving for each other. When life starts looking a little brighter it’s not long before the storm clouds roll in. All is never what it appears and under his good looks and in charge attitude, Finlay has a past of his own and secrets that can destroy the dynamics of the friendships she has built.

Secrets are waiting to be spilled, but at what cost?



**I received an ARC for an honest review.**

Another great book by Ker Dukey. It is filled with tons of emotions tons of shocking twists. I will be honest and say that I had an inkling that some of them were coming, but holy crapy it didn't make them any less awesome! 

I am going to say that the only reason that I gave this book 4 stars out of 5 is because at times I felt that Finlay was a little to quick with his temper and I thought Antonia should have been more vocal towards him about how he was emotionally hurting her, but that is about it. I loved this story and I really liked the twists and new things that popped up that made the storyline all the more interesting. And that ending...oh my goodness...I though maybe that is where it was heading but HOLY MESSED UP GOODNESS!!! I am definitely going to be reading more of this series. 

It was so great to see how much stronger Antonia's character grew over the course of this book, although at times I think that it was to directly related to Finlay. BUT and a big but she did grow without him also. I liked her friendship with Gaby and with all of the other guys as well. I loathed Julie and I really want her to get hers. There are tons of things that are happening in the background of Drawn to You that I hope more light is shed upon those things. 

I would have liked more of Finlay's POV, but I did fee like I connected with him when he was with Antonia. I still feel like there was a lot left to the imagination with his character and I would have liked to get into his head a bit more, but that did not really take away from who he ended up being. For being so young he sure stepped up for his family and the burden he had to carry. He is definitely someone to admire. 

I will definitely be keeping up with this series. Like the other books that I have read by Ker Dukey I am sucked into this storyline and I want more.

D2U Blitz About Ker

kerI have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active... I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I'm not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I'm a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where i love interacting with my readers.

Release Day Blitz ... Betrayal by S.M. Phillips

(Obsession #2)
by S.M. Phillips

"I gave you one chance, Anna. A chance to run and never look back. That's all you had to do. Run and keep your goddamn head down, yet here we are and it's not just you in the firing line anymore. You better pray that nothing bad happens to my brother, because this time I'll be taking you down with me."

Running was the only option that Anna Jameson was given. To up and leave everything that she had ever known and put it all behind her. That was the toughest decision that she'd ever made, and she made it... But was it all worth it?

As soon as her anxiety and fear began to slowly ebb away, she could see a faint light at the end of the dark and horrific tunnel that she had found herself in... That light was the dark, sexy and demanding Jensen Blake. A man who played on her every emotion and a man who she swore she would avoid at all costs.

Nobody can run forever and the past is about to catch up with her. With nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, how many more people will suffer at the hand of Anna's hidden past?

Danger, fear and betrayal decide to make an unwelcome appearance and it looks like they're about to become her new best friends.

Everything Max has done has always been at a cost to others around him. He wasn't about to make that mistake again. No longer will his selfish ways punish those close to him. Sometimes it's better to have had and lost than to never have had at all.

All four books of the X-Treme Boys series in one box set.
For 25 year old attorney, Hindley Hagen, life is all about staying one step ahead of the game. Avoiding surprises and keeping people at a distance is the only way she has to protect herself from the painful scars of her past. 

When she is offered a new position at her prestigious Austin law firm as sports agent for pro skateboarder, Rory Gregor, she’s ready for the new challenge, but completely unprepared for the man who captures her heart. Suddenly, Hindley is thrust into a world where protecting all their secrets could cost her everything—her family, her career, maybe even her life. 

Professional skateboarder and X Games royalty, Rory Gregor knows what it’s like to be at the top. But after years of bad decisions and one-night-stands, he’s working hard for a comeback he never anticipated. Hiring a new agent may be what his team thinks he needs to rebuild his career, but what if it costs him his heart in the process? Just when he thinks he’s posed for success, secrets from his past threaten to ruin his chance for gold and a new love. In a sport where trust means everything, this time it may not be enough. 

Hindley Hagen has worked hard to give X Games golden boy Rory Gregor the comeback he deserves. This time the skateboarding legend has won more than just a gold medal, he’s captured her heart. 

But now she’s trapped, caught in the snare of a man playing a deadly game. She must choose — protect the one man who’s made her come alive for the first time in her life, or risk losing everything she’s worked hard for, including him. To save them both, Hindley must do the unthinkable. But protecting him means her own demons may surface, and from that there is no recovery. 

Trust isn’t something that comes naturally to Rory Gregor. Even his own professional achievements as an X Games multi-gold medalist can’t wash away a childhood filled with abuse. But with Hindley Hagen by his side, he’s skating better than ever and finally feels worthy of the success he’s attained. 

As their need to protect one another grows to escalating heights with deadly consequences, will Hindley and Rory find the future together they deserve? Or will they discover that the one thing threatening to destroy them both is actually each other?
