About the Book(1)

EJFracturedLoveBookCover6x9_MEDIUM I was sixteen when he came to our house. Landon Jones, a boy with nothing, from nowhere. He had cinnamon hair and blue eyes—light blue, just like mine. When we went out as a family with my foster brother, people asked if Landon was my twin. He wasn’t. That year, we found out how much he wasn’t. When my parents caught us, they threw Landon out like trash.

Now I’m twenty-nine, a soon-to-be surgeon, like my mom and dad. I know residency is going to kick my ass, but I had no idea that it would rip my heart out, too. Not until I see him—Dr. Jones.

A standalone that is part of the Off-Limits Romance collection.

– ABOUT EYES ON YOU (Blasphemy 3) –

 

She wants to explore her true desires, and he wants to watch…

When a sexy stranger asks Wolf Henrikson to rescue her from a bad date, he never expected to want the woman for himself. But their playful conversation turns into a scorching one-night stand that reveals the shy beauty gets off on the idea of being seen, even if she’s a little scared of it, too. And Wolf loves to watch.

In the wake of discovering her fiancé’s infidelity, florist Olivia Foster never expected to find someone who not only understood her wildest, darkest fantasies, but would bring them to life. As Wolf introduces her to his world at the play club, Blasphemy, Liv finds herself tempted to explore submission and exhibitionism with the hard-bodied Dom even as she’s scared to trust again.

But Wolf is a master of getting what he wants—and he’s got his eyes set on her…

 

– REVIEW –

 

Here’s a short, delectable story from Laura Kaye, right in time for that quick beach read.

Wolf Henrikson, looking like a Norse god, is sitting alone at the bar one night. One of the Master Dominants of Blasphemy, Baltimore’s exclusive BDSM club, Wolf’s just been stood up by a prospective submissive. Don’t feel too bad for Wolf. At a table not far away, Olivia (Liv) Foster is attempting to be polite to her dinner date — the most obnoxious man ever put on the planet. Wolf can’t help but overhead the rude tirade throw by Liv’s date. Upon further inspection, Wolf gets an eyeful of the luscious Liv, who happens to be decked out in a red dress and black heels with ribbons around the ankles, no less. (Okay, we might have some Little Red Riding Hood going on here, but it’s so, so good — stick with me, people.)

Push comes to, ahem, shove, and before you know it, Wolf and Liv are back in his hotel room, acting out their fantasies up against a glass window for all to see. They’re a match made in BDSM heaven, as both enjoy the same kinks. But is role playing enough for either one, or are there deeper, lasting desires to fulfill?

Laura Kaye’s Eyes on You is book 3 of her fabulous Blasphemy series, and it’s not to be missed! Brought to you by the fine people at 1001 Dark Nights, Eyes on You is a very quick read, full of steamy sexy treats that surround a well-written story. Author Kaye sprinkles in characters from the Blasphemy series as needed, enriching the plot. The protagonists are very well written — Liv is a sweetheart, finally finding the courage to voice her needs. Wolf is the fantasy Dom come true — after all, he really knows how to take care of his sub:

“Wolf got her the ribeye”

Eyes on You

Kindle Loc. 501 of 1691

I loved Laura Kaye’s Eyes on You.  Her fans will too. If you’ve never read any of the Blasphemy series, I suggest this novella as an introduction into the sensual and erotic culture of Blasphemy. You will not be disappointed.

– EXCERPT –

 

The silence that followed was thick with tension, and Liv almost couldn’t decide if she’d hallucinated what’d happened or if this first date was truly just that bad. Jerry wouldn’t make eye contact and, instead, peered down at his cell phone beneath the table. So she took the opportunity to survey the diners sitting at the horseshoe-shaped bar near them in the hopes she’d see someone, anyone, she knew. God, please give me a way to escape Mr. I Don’t Use Menus. But God had clearly forsaken her, because the party of three women having a girls’ night out were strangers. As were the various groupings of men, some of whom wore Orioles gear and watched the pre-game commentary on the captioned television screens above the bar. An elderly man she didn’t know sat alone nearest to their high-boy table nursing a glass of bourbon, and two seats down from him…sat the hottest man Liv had ever seen.

And that was her impression just from seeing him in profile.

He had dark blond hair and a chiseled jaw, and even sitting, it was clear that he was tall.

Seriously broad shoulders filled out a dark green button-down shirt, and big hands gripped a glass of water. Now God was just being mean. Because someone was going to get to be with that man tonight while she was stuck here with Jerry of the I Don’t Use Menus clan. As she watched, not-Jerry pressed his cell phone to his ear and began talking in tones too low for her to hear.

On a sigh, Liv returned her attention to Jerry. Not that it mattered, because his gaze remained fixed on his phone. She drained the rest of her Prosecco and wished someone would bring her the bottle. That wouldn’t be too awkward for a first date, right? Right?

– SYNOPSIS –

 

His brother’s untimely death leaves him with an Earldom and a fiancée. Too bad he wants neither of them…

Theodora Lawton has no need of a husband. As an independent woman, she wants to own property, make investments and be the master of her destiny. Unfortunately, her father signed her life away in a marriage contract to the future Earl of Stonemere. But then the cad upped and died, leaving her fate in the hands of his brother, one of the renowned Lustful Lords.

Achilles Denton, the Earl of Stonemere, is far more prepared to be a soldier than a peer. Deeply scarred by his last tour of duty, he knows he will never be a proper, upstanding pillar of the empire. Balanced on the edge of madness, he finds respite by keeping a tight rein on his life, both in and out of the bedroom. His brother’s death has left him with responsibilities he never wanted and isn’t prepared to handle in the respectable manner expected of a peer.

Further complicating his new life is an unwanted fiancée who comes with his equally unwanted title. Saddled with a hand-me-down countess, he soon discovers the woman is a force unto herself. As he grapples with the burden of his new responsibilities, he discovers someone wants him dead. The question is, can he stay alive long enough to figure out who’s trying to kill him while he tries to tame his headstrong wife?

Review: The Catch by K. Bromberg

 

– ABOUT THE CATCH

 

After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.

Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.

But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.

With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.

He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.

 

Sensual romantic foreplay by couple in love in bed

 

– REVIEW –

 

There are very few books, especially duets, that I read and automatically pre-order the next installment. But I did just that when I finished K. Bromberg’s The Player in April. Like hearing the crack of a baseball bat that leads to a grand slam, I knew The Catch, the concluding book of The Player Duet, was going to be a terrific story. And I was not disappointed.

The Catch continues the story of Easton Wylder — a mega star baseball player, who lives and breathes the game. Baseball is his religion, his reason for living, his everything until an injury sidelines him.  Scout Dalton, daughter of legendary sports trainer, Doc Dalton, steps into her father’s shoes to rehab Easton’s busted shoulder. Both Easton and Scout bleed baseball, and soon their passion for the game is secondary to the passion they have for each other.

Easton and Scout are noble characters, and in The Catch, they continue to be, as together they dodge the wild pitches life throws at them. Especially Easton, who reveals himself to be the kind of man any parent aspires their child to become, the man every woman wants to father and raise her child, and the kind of person you want as your best friend for life.

Credit author K. Bromberg for cleverly salting The Player (Book One of the Player Duet) with clues that turn out to be major plot twists in The Catch. And while The Catch is in the genre of sports romance, and the story plays out the baseball/life metaphor beautifully, make no mistake, this story is incredibly romantic. Easton will make you swoon. The sexual chemistry that envelops Easton and Scout is ever present. And there is always, always in the background, the distant but clear cheer of the crowd.

Bromberg’s writing style is a pleasure to read. This story has no fillers, no extraneous characters — just solid writing. Again, allow it to speak for itself — here’s Easton’s tragically addicted mother, Meg, in a moment of clarity and love — speaking to her son:

“There will come a day, son, when someone will love the parts of you that no one else knows how to love.”

Kindle Loc. 2177 of 3701

The Catch is a fitting conclusion to The Player — I was left satisfied, but with the desire to have the ability to peek into Easton and Scout’s life far, far down the road. There is an Epilogue that brought tears to my eyes, and I am just going to have to be satisfied with that bit of generosity from Ms. Bromberg.

The perfect summer read, especially if you are a member of the Church of Baseball, I give The Catch, specifically The Player Duet, my highest recommendation. You will not be disappointed.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– ABOUT  THE PLAYER

 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.

Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.

So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.

And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play.

But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?
