BLOCK 24 BLOG TOUR AND GIVEAWAY




A re-emergence of the past…
Natalie Clarke might be spiteful at best and vicious at worst, but was that reason enough for Phillip
Gise to leave her lonely and diseased? Fortunately, she has a set of devious plans that just might keep
her busy enough to forget her present situation.
Guy Lewis has played Best Friend Extraordinaire to Natalie since grade school, supporting her through
all of her daily drama. This time around, Guy runs into his own troubles when his fierce, wealthy
manager gives him the type of attention he never asked for…or expected.
Julia Clarke, Natalie’s younger sister, has arrived in Brooklyn to uncover their grandmother’s secret
life in Block 24, the site of Auschwitz’s little-known brothel. What Julia discovers proves more
relevant in the present age than ever before.
Both heady and sobering, Block 24 is a look at the ways evil from the past can so insidiously visit the
present.


Block 24 Chapter Six Excerpt

“So,”said Philip, awaking Natalie with a whisper, “you dug the movie?”
She lifted her head from his shoulder and set her feet on top of the seat in front of her. “I dig
anything with Brad Pitt.”
“Yeah?” he responded, looking down at her, smirking.  “Well, I dig anything with Angelina.”
Natalie bit her lip, meeting his eyes. Yes, she was momentarily jealous but not feeling combative.
In fact, she was in the mood for a flirt fest. She laughed. “You're not the only one. I'd make a scissor
sandwich with that broad any day of the week.”
Philip reached for her legs, laying them on  top of his lap. “Nah. I don't see that happening. Brad's
obviously got that on lock.”
Natalie stared down at her cream leggings over his dark blue jeans.  She had worn a tiny leather
skirt but included the leggings so that Philip would not see how pale her legs were. It was early spring,
and she hadn't spent any real time in the sun yet. Bare legs would have looked better beneath the skirt,
but she had turned the outfit into something Bohemian-like to redeem it, pairing the shorts and leggings
with a loose cream blouse, seven bangles, and a brown packer hat. She hoped now, with her legs on top of his lap, he could appraise the length of them. She wanted him to want her in the worst way. By then,
he hadn't made certain that he did.
“So, you don't think I can break up Brangelina?” Natalie asked, crossing her arms over her chest.
“I've got mad skills, Gise. Obviously you don't know me very well yet.”
“Did you just say Brangelina?” he asked, laughing and shaking his head. He caressed her lower
legs. “What are you—a Star! news reporter?”
“And if I was?” she asked, reaching forward, grabbing the center of his collared shirt, pretending
as though she would rough him up. She smiled. “Brangelina' is a very efficient term. Saves a lot of
syllables. It's genius, really.”
He grabbed the center of her blouse, drawing her even closer. She could feel his soft breath on her
lips. “So, what would that make us?” he whispered. “'Natlip?'”
She grinned, staring at his lips. “No. That would make us 'Phatalie.'”
He squeezed his eyes shut, laughing quietly. He let go of her shirt and clutched her lower back. “I
like that, baby. It's got potential.
Her stomach fluttered. It was the first time he had called her baby, and he said it with the Johnny
Depp deep, lazy voice that made her toes curl in her sneakers. Plus, if she wasn't mistaken, his use of
“potential” referred to more than a hybrid name.
“That's right,” said Natalie. “It's gonna be 'Phatalie. Because we're phat. P-H-A-T. Pretty Hot And
Tempting.”
He tickled her waist. “Did you just quote a movie?”
“Yep. Money Talks. It's the one with Charlie Sheen.” She rubbed her hands quickly up and down
his cheeks, as though she were warming his bare face. “My mom took Guy and I to see it when we
were younger.”
“Guy?” He circled her wrists loosely and clapped her hands together. “Who's that?”
“He's my best friend.”
Philip nodded, looking down at her legs. After a moment's silence, he looked back up. “So, you
quote movies with ease, eh?”
“I do a lot of things with ease,” she returned, moving his hands to her thighs.
He took a deep breath and ran his tongue over his lips. “I'm sure.” He slid his hands from her
thighs to her ankles, a safer region.
Natalie wondered what he was trying to do...or avoid doing. For the sake of her pride, she
retreated. “I would tell you what I do with ease,” she said before turning on a pitiful Jack Nicholson
impersonation,“but you can't handle the truth.”
He breathed out a short laugh, his hands creeping up her legs once more. “Well, show me the
money.”
She wrinkled her brows, laughing and setting her hands at the back of his head. She looked into
his eyes. They twinkled in amusement. “What the fuck?” she said. “You can't just quote a random
movie line. It has to at least make sense in the context of the conversation.”
“Where the hell did these rules come from?” he asked, reacting for her hat, taking it off her head,
and spinning it on his middle finger like a basketball.
“Gotta know the rules to play the game, Gise.”
“But you don't get to make up all the rules.”
“Actually, I do.” She held his face. “I get to do whatever I want.”
He buried his face into her neck, sniffing. “Do I smell a diva?”
 “Diva? No need for sly terms, sir. Diva is a bitch in sequins, right? I'm dressed down today.” She
giggled as Philip rubbed his nose deeper into her neck. “Sometimes being a bitch is all a woman has to
hold on to.”
“Dolores Claiborne.” He kissed her jaw, then the apple of her cheek.  “I saw that one.”
“It's my favorite movie quote of all time.”
“Real legit, N.C,” he whispered, employing the Johnny Depp lazy tone again. He rubbed her
cheek with his own. “Guess nobody puts Baby in a corner, huh?”
“Nice usage,” Natalie replied, rubbing his cheek back against his and closing her eyes. Had a
man ever felt this good?  “Plus, I am actually a bitch, Gise.” She felt his lips with her finger. “There's
nothing good about me, see; suppose that's what makes me so great.”
He spun her hat on his finger once more before letting it fall. “Don't recognize that line. What
movie is it?”
“I made that one up myself. You like?” She separated her cheek from his, looking him in the eyes, grinning.
Philip smiled in response and reached for her waist, pulling her over to him and settling her on
his lap. Her feet dangled just above the ground as he pressed the nape of her neck with his fingertips
and brought her forward to his lips. He pressed his mouth over hers, holding her face in place with
one hand. He moved with finesse, easy but eager, his lips making fluent sweeps over hers, sometimes
gently tugging at her bottom lip and at other times, hungrily sucking on her top lip. Her legs swung
back in forth with his motion, intermittently bobbing against the seat like a hyper child. He pressed
his fingers lightly into her cheek, pushing her mouth open and  slipping his tongue inside. His saliva
tasted like peppermint; Natalie realized then that he had bought the chocolate peppermint candies at the
popcorn stand for this moment.  He knew exactly what he was doing, and she wondered what had taken
him so long to do it, to give her this full-fledged kiss. She was sure that this would be the defining
kiss—the one a woman waited for to prove that  a kiss really had the power to awaken a sleeping
beauty. He deserved an award for his ability to warm her coolness.
She grew desperate for him, but for every attempt she made to speed  up the kiss, he held her face
still, taking his time to savor her mouth. He bundled the back of her shirt with one hand, pulling her
backward slightly and moving forward to give himself an edge over her. She wrapped her arms around
his neck, wondering if after these two months together, their first time would be right there in the
empty movie theater. In that case, she wondered how she would disguise the paleness of her legs when
he pulled her leggings down.
While she thought on these things, he brought the kiss to an end, giving her one soft peck before
opening his eyes and mouthing,“I'm the king of the world.”
She smiled. “Titanic.”
He tucked her hair behind her ear “Nah. I made that one up on my own.”

~ So this is not a book I would have normally picked up to read, and had I not been asked to read it, I doubt that I would have ever known it existed.
This is not your typical love story by any means. However, it most definitely is a story of love.

I did NOT love Natalie. She's a conniving, superficial, jealous, bitch. She believes that she's entitled to things just because. She's a mean girl in my eyes. I don't think I would be able to look past the things she did like Philip was able to.
Philip I loved. He was caring, and sweet and so so so patient with Natalie. Even when no one else in their right mind would be. And when he made her a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, I loved him even more.
Their relationship wasn't dysfunctional. It was Natalie playing silly childish games that he tolerated. He's amazing for putting up with her as long as he did. I'm not sure any man would stick around long enough for her to have her final 'melt-down'.

Guy I loved! I felt for him throughout the whole story. He put up with Natalie's crap and because of Natalie, he put up Philips crap as well. But I completely agree with his decision about his best-friend, especially after the whole Jeremy situation.
Jeremy I hated. I hated him more than I didn't like Natalie. He's a user and a liar and pig. He wants his cake and to eat it to, but someone else is doing all the baking.
What Jeremy does to Guy is completely disgusting to me and I agree with Natalie that he is a jerk and not worthy of Guy.
All that being said, what Natalie did to Guy while trying to get another jab at Daya is beyond forgivable. Best friends don't do that. Guy's right, it wasn't a favor, it was betrayal. He's a good man for 'helping' Natalie one more time.

Julia has learned life lessons when she wasn't really expecting to. What started off as doing what she loved, filming, turned into an emotional story that even Julia didn't get the privilege of fully understanding.

Adina's story of her and her sister Avigail and their 'brother' Jakob, broke my heart. To live through that is simply, nothing short of amazing. And then to move to 'Block 24' and endure 'hell' there.
I fell completely in love with Hans. To risk everything for everyone involved for love... wow. What an incredible man. Even though he was 'The Enemy' and himself did horrible things, he was very easy to love. He proved that what he had done was out of necessity and not desire to be like 'them'.
I think I felt just as devastated for Adina as she did herself. I was very sucked into these parts of the book.

All in all I really liked 'Block 24'. Evan Tyler doesn't give you the typical HEA (Happily Ever After). The story you get is real, and raw, and honestly is going to sit with you for a while.

HOUSE RULES By: Liz Crowe GIVEAWAY!


Fueling the Fire
By Liz Crowe

We are all motivated by different things. For some of us it’s money, for others pride,
for some the sheer joy of creation.

I am in awe of all the millions of authors out there who can continue to plug away,
writing along, releasing books and who don’t give a rip who reads them. That sort of
raw creativity—the ability to keep coming up with plots and characters just for the
sake of coming up with plots and characters is pretty darn cool.

I’ve had a fairly prolific, yet short career so far. I’ve had over 20 books published,
with 4 different publishers and am in the process of revising and rewriting the
very first series that made it out there now that I have the rights back from that
publisher. And I have several new ideas floating around in my head, including
one for a more mainstream (read: Not Erotic or Romance) novel that I hope to get
written over the course of early 2014.

But I will tell you now that I am not driven by the pure joy of this very hard work
of writing books. I am driven to succeed at it. It’s a character plus and minus, were
I to map myself. I am fueled by the success of others both positively and negatively.
I sometimes let the green eyed monster get the best of me, and claim I will give up,
if the sort of books that are jumping up into all the best seller lists are indication of
what people actually want to read. But, then I am also propelled forward, eager to
shove my own latest and greatest creation out in front of readers in the search for
the ever-elusive Best Selling Author status.

It can feel like a bit of a hamster wheel sort of thing. But I think I will get there, 
eventually. And in the meantime, although I may claim I’m giving up, I won’t. I love
crafting stories and characters even a few people enjoy reading, and so I view it as
a “one reader at a time” kind of battle. I don’t have the massive reach of some, but
I’ve come a long way in a couple of years so leaning patience with myself has been
a lesson I needed to learn. So, yeah, I guess I am “that author”—the one plugging
away and releasing new books with regularity, in hopes of gaining a few more
readers.

The main character of the Stewart Realty series, Jack Gordon, is a guy with similar
impatient tendencies. But he’s tenacious, and rarely gives up on himself. So I look to
him, and as part of that, I wrote a prequel to my top selling series that is his story,
from his point of view. I’m offering it free (on the publisher’s site) or drastically
reduced (everywhere else, just .99 permanently) in hopes that a few more folks will
get drawn into the fold of this epic saga of novels.



Happy Reading!


It takes a wealth of collected experiences, emotions, successes and failures to craft the personality of a
true Alpha Male
Jack Gordon, real estate broker, licensed builder, Juris Doctorate, has had his fair share of strife. His
ability to cope, to fall down and pick himself back up has lead him to a place where he believes he has
it all. Friends, money, cars, more women than he can count, and a club in Detroit where he can exorcise
his inner demons, fill his days and his nights.
When he walks up to a penthouse door on a hot Ann Arbor summer afternoon, frustrated, exasperated
and ready to call it quits after hours of condo shopping with a wealthy couple, the last thing on his mind
is meeting his destiny.
House Rules: The Jack Gordon Story. A prequel novella of the Stewart Realty Series.

     ************************************EXCERPT******************************************


D├ętente existed once more between Jack and his father, although Jack
could hardly look at the man without remembering his words, what he said about
Mindy, the woman he’d paid to fuck his own son.
A soft hand on his arm startled him. He turned, smiled, and accepted the
cup the blonde girl held out.
“Thanks, gorgeous.” He leaned into her. “What a scene, huh?” He sipped,
not looking at her but sensing her gaze on him. He knew he looked great.
Between the pure physical labor he put in daily on the job sites, lugging drywall,
holding up trusses, hammering, and carrying every manner of tools around, he
also ran every morning without fail, and did three hundred sit-ups and push-ups
no matter how tired he was. The routine of it soothed him, helped him forget, for
a moment, his fucked-up family life and that he had but a few more weeks before
he could escape to college.
Worry about leaving his sister behind tickled at his conscience but Mo
seemed at ease with her relationship with their father for now.  She was a tough
cookie and had a solid set of friends around.
The discipline Jack imposed on himself felt great. The punishing exercise
coupled with the long hours of work and determined study so he could achieve
beyond what his asshole father expected of him centered him, gave him purpose.
Well, that and what he was about to do with the lovely female now under his arm,
giggling and running her hand up his thigh.
He tugged her inside, down to the basement, needing a connection so
badly his teeth ached. She sighed as he eased her down on the couch, kissing
her gently but with purpose, increasing his pressure slowly as his cock sprang to
attention under his swim trunks.
“Mmm…this feels promising,” she declared, reaching into his shorts.
He smiled into her mouth. He’d found one with a little experience—a
pleasant change of pace. She brushed her thumb across his head, making him
shiver. “Hope you’re prepared, big boy,” the girl said with a touch of awe in her
voice when she looked down at what she had in her hand.
Jack sighed and leaned over to snag a condom from the supply he kept
in the drawer of a rarely-used table in the corner. “Like a Boy Scout, sweetheart,”
he said, handing it to her.
She grinned and stood, slipping out of her barely-there bikini and standing
in front of him in all her curvy glory. He licked his lips, sat up, and yanked her
hips close so he could bury his face between her legs. She gripped his hair then
pushed back, forcing him to flop over onto the couch so she could straddle his
He groaned and flicked at the tender button of flesh. He loved pussy,
loved looking at it, licking it, watching it come to life under his careful attention.
The girl was moist, her folds were soft, and she tasted like the sweetest honey.
He sucked her clit, slid a finger inside, and moaned as she gripped him
hard. The knee-jerk girls were the best, he had discovered. They came fast
and typically had no clue that they were among the rarest of women—the multiorgasmic—and his favorite.
He looked up, watched her cup her own breasts and tug her nipples.
Perfect, just perfect. He reached in at an angle, seeking that bundle of nerves
most women possessed, right behind her pubic bone.
“Jesus,” he yelped, nearly coming out of his skin when a soft set of lips
encircled his dick and a finger traced down his balls and lower. “Baby, I didn’t
know this was gonna be a party,” he whispered.
The girl looked down at him and smiled, angling her hips so he kept going
as the other girl sucked his cock like a pro, until he couldn’t hold back another
minute. The girl on his face came again too, completing the moment. The other
girl still palming his balls moaned and jerked forward again, and again. Girl
number one climbed off him, and Jack put his arms under his head and watched
girl number two get fucked by his friend from behind. “Nice,” he said, admiring
the way her tits bounced.
“Her idea,” Brandis ground out then closed his eyes and pounded harder.
Jack reached down to fondle girl number two’s clit, making her eyes fly open at
the last minute. Her lips were so full. He had to kiss them. So he did, and all was
well for everyone in the room.

**************************************************************************************************************

A Lucky Second Chance : By Nickie Seidler
A tale of Domestic Violence, and getting up the courage to leave is how this story starts off.   A Grabber at the begin, at first you don’t know what is going on or why she is leaving.
Nickie paints Emmas Character to a T.  I believe she did an excellent job with the character traits of someone who has been through an abusive relationship.  The personal traits, the thought process the trust, the constant downplay/second guessing.   
Emma leaves Florida to go back to her home town Chicago, to live with her brother.  Deciding to start over, make a new life.  Her brother Kevin, her closest sibling has set her up with a job with a friend working as a secretary in a law firm.  Running smack dab into Mister Wonderful on her first day of work is just when life begins to get more interesting for Emma. 
Nathan Weber Aka Mister Wonderful  Is in essence a Knight In shining Armor to Emma.  He is a likeable guy easy to fall for I might add.  Sweet in his intention, a bit fast moving but I really enjoyed Nates character. 
Each have their stories, their pasts.  It’s a faster pace story once you get into the meat and potatoes of it.   A great book of A Tragic beginning, learning to love again, a chance at a new life. 

Give it a shot, It’s a great read!  Slow at first but a page turner as you go.   I promise you, its SOOO Worth it!

Book Bitch Melissa











Teaser
“I'm sorry. I had to pinch you and make sure this moment was real.” I smiled up at him. “That was wonderful. I've felt the same way.” I was struck by another daze as his touch sent ripples of sensation down between my legs as he rubbed my back up and down. I ran my hand across his chest, feeling how tight his muscles were through his black dress shirt. “I don't know how to say this, because we don’t even know one another, but please, don't leave me.”

As if he completely understood me, he kissed me again, ever so gently on my lips.

“I won’t go, I want to get to know you, Emma.” He ran his fingers through my hair.
“You may not like what you get to know.” A tear fell down my cheek.

“Let me take that risk,” he whispered. Then tenderly, he kissed my forehead.
“Come on, let’s go get some coffee. You like coffee, right?” He grinned.

“I love coffee. I need coffee.” I chuckled.

Teaser:

Up for some company this weekend? Rachel wants to join us.
I showed the screen to Rachel before I hit send. She swallowed and nodded, her movements tight, but certain. I sent the message.
“Jesus.” Rachel drank more wine.
“You know, you don't have to do this.” I'd been teasing her when I brought it up, but the idea of seeing Luca with Rachel stirred excitement low in my belly. This would be a lot of fun. Providing Rachel didn't faint from the idea of it.
“I know.”
Luca responded.
Join us for dinner? Or. . .
I smiled. Even though we'd talked about including other people, we'd both been reluctant to follow through. After the night he brought Richard to meet me, Luca hadn't wanted to push the issue. And I had simply been enjoying him.
We could have dinner first. Then I'd like you to fuck her while I watch.
I hit send and imagined Luca going instantly hard when he read my message. He was incredibly responsive to suggestion.
Rachel watched, but didn't ask what he said. Luca replied immediately.
The new toys can wait. I'll book a room.
