                       GIVING YOU FOREVER 
                         BY ASHLEY WILCOX

From the moment Nolan Pratt walked into Alexa Arnold’s life everything was forever
changed.  After a year of dating, the ring was on her finger, the house was purchased, and life
was heading down Pleasantville Lane. Everything was perfect.

Or so they thought.

With help from his parent’s inheritance, Nolan takes on a new business adventure,
utilizing all his free time.  What was once their life- carefree with minimal responsibilities, is no
more. When Alexa starts to feel the pressure from school, wedding planning, and lack of help
from Nolan, exhaustion kicks in and feelings get hurt, testing the strength of their relationship.
But, if there is one thing that Nolan will never compromise, it’s Alexa’s happiness. There’s
nothing Nolan Pratt won’t do to make sure Alexa is well taken care of, loved, and happy.
When Nolan’s past resurfaces- a past that Alexa didn’t know existed- will it all be too
much?  Will Nolan’s devotion to Alexa’s happiness cost him their relationship and lose him the
only thing that has ever mattered in his life?  Or will Nolan discover that his past doesn’t
determine his future and he is worth the happiness he doesn’t think he deserves?


                                                                       CHAPTER 1

Almost Three Years Later


The house is quiet, and all the lights are off downstairs as I make my way through the
kitchen, down the hallway, and up the stairs.  I hear the television and a light flickering from the
master bedroom.  A pinch of excitement surges through my body.
I love when she waits for me in bed.
On my way to our room, I anxiously undo my tie and unclasp the first few buttons to my
shirt before untucking it from my pants.  Just thinking about what choice of bedtime wear she
has picked out tonight makes me hard and ready.  Licking my lips before turning the corner, I’m
a little caught off guard with what’s waiting for me on the other side.  Instead of my sexy and
willing fiancé spread out over our bed, I find a pissed off Alexa sitting up with her arms folded
across her chest.
“Where have you been?” she shouts before I can even take two steps into the room.
Shit! She’s really pissed.
Coming up aside the bed, I sit down next to her so that my body is facing her.
“What do ya mean- I was working?” I answer in a sincere, yet confused tone while
resting my hand on her thigh.
“You were supposed to meet me at Justin’s Grill three hours ago, Nolan!”

I close my eyes and drop my chin to my chest while exhaling in shame. I completely
forgot about the meeting.
“Yeah, nothing like showing up to an appointment for a wedding venue and being stood
up by your fiancé,” she adds.  “I felt like a complete idiot, Nolan.  I can’t do this all on my own.
I need your help.”
My gut knots picturing her face while checking her watch every few minutes wondering
where I was.  I stood my fiancé up while trying to plan our wedding. 
What a fucking asshole I am!
Scooting in closer to her and resting my hand on her cheek, I make sure I look her square
in the eyes when I tell her, “I’m so sorry, doll.”
I can feel Alexa’s body relax as she exhales. “I know you’re crazy busy with trying to get
your gym opened up, but I need you, Nolan, and you didn’t even have your phone on when I
Her tone is sincere this time, but it still pains me to know how exhausted and alone she
feels in this whole process.  The last thing I want is for planning our wedding to be a dreadful
experience for her.  I want to see the smile on Alexa’s face and the warmness in her eyes that I
saw the day I asked her to marry me.  I know girls dream about what their wedding day is going
to look and feel like from the moment they learn what a wedding is…I want her to have her

“I had meetings all afternoon, so I had my phone off, but it’s not acceptable. I should’ve
been there, and I feel like shit that I wasn’t.  What about our family?  My sister would love to
help, and you know your mother would jump on board immediately.”
 “I already said no to this, remember?” she sighs. “Your sister is crazy busy with work,
and my parents have done so much already with the engagement party and everything else. I
wanted to be able to do this ourselves, and not have to rely on anyone else.”
 Right. I knew this.
 “Okay, how do we fix this, then? How can we make this work? I, unfortunately, can’t be
in two places at once.”
 “Well…” she begins with the cutest fucking smirk.  But as cute as it is, it’s also the same
smirk that I know means she has something crazy planned out in her head already. “I researched some wedding planners in the area, and I found a really great one, but…”
Elated with her Plan B, I interrupt, “No buts. That sounds fantastic.  Why don’t you call
them tomorrow?”  I lean in and kiss her gently. Alexa presses back slightly. “They’re really
expensive, though, babe.  We’d be going way over budget.”
Although I’d give Alexa the world if I could, I’ve learned over the past few years that I
should ask the price before saying yes. The girl likes to spend money and can do it rather quickly.
“How much are we talkin’?”
Her grin grows a little sweeter with the perfect amount of sexy as her hands start to move
slowly down my chest, unclasping the buttons of my shirt on the way.
She’s good.
Moving to her knees, she brings her mouth to the side of my face and whispers in the
hottest voice imaginable, “Just five thousand.”
Five thousand!  For a fill-in fiancé? They better kiss her damn feet, too!
With opening my own fitness gym, the wedding, and the random expenses of being a
homeowner, I’ve been writing checks left and right. The thought of adding five grand on top of
that is not a pleasant thought. Knowing how happy it’ll make Alexa and how it’ll allow her to
have the wedding of her dreams and not to mention, I’m getting so fucking turned on with her
hands now undoing my pants and seeing her nipples hard and screaming my name through her
silk top, I happily agree.
“Book’em,” I growl against her lips before pinning her down on the bed and seducing her
mouth with my tongue while running my hand up under her top, squeezing her eager and waiting
“Oh, I love you,” she moans once we come up for air and start removing each other’s
“More than you could ever imagine, doll,” I reply, spreading her legs as my mouth slides
in between them.
Just as her fingers tangle in my hair and her hips move up and down, I swirl my tongue
around her clit.  With the way her breathing deepens and the sexy ass moans that escape her
mouth when I go down on her, I’ve made it a pre-sex ritual to get her off with my tongue before
filling her with my cock. 
Starting to feel my dick throb with its own heartbeat, and wanting to get to get inside of
her now, I do what I know will send Alexa over the edge. Sucking her nub forcefully in my
mouth, I push two fingers deep inside, massaging over her sweet spot within. In seconds, her
hands fist in my hair and her body clenches.
“Oh god,” she moans as her body surges into a hot as hell orgasm.
Moving my mouth up her body, I take a second to greet her perfectly plump breasts
before making my way up to Alexa’s beautifully pleasured face. 
God, how I love seeing what I do to her.
Our mouths flow in a rhythmic pace while our tongues caress each other with passion. 
Emotionally involved with our kiss, the world fades away around us as I bring my hands up to
her face, passionately pressing against mine. 
Using my legs to open Alexa’s more, I line myself up to her opening, pushing in with
ease.  Her mouth separates from mine as she falls back further into the pillows, letting out a
fulfilled deep throat-ed moan.


Nolan brings my hands up over my head as he stares deep into my eyes, moving his
length in and out of me.  His long blonde hair falls around his face and his crystal blue eyes
sparkle with desire. He’s so effin gorgeous and turns me on more than I could ever imagine one
person could.  Like he can hear me admiring him, he smiles and brings his face down closer to
mine, resting our foreheads together.  While filling my body with pleasure, he kisses me slowly
and sensually, perfectly in sync with his movements. 
“I love you so damn much,” he breathes heavily against my lips.
Sliding out from underneath him, I push him down into the bed.  A shocked but devilish
grin creeps across his face as I swing my leg over his body, lining his shaft up to my opening,
pushing him up inside of me as I sit down on top of him.
Nolan’s hands clasp my hips as I tease him by bringing my hands up to my breasts. 
Nolan goes crazy when he sees me pleasuring myself- it’s like an insta-orgasm for him.  Closing
my eyes, I seductively massage my breasts while grinding my lower half over his.
“Oh yeah, doll…” he growls, pushing up in me harder.
Our pace slowly quickens and our moans grow more frequent.  Soon, I feel Nolan’s body
tense as mine fills with an unbelievable amount of pleasure, releasing into a mesmerizing orgasm

“You make me look like a one pump chump when you do that,” Nolan jokes as I walk
back into our room after cleaning up in the bathroom.
“Do what?” I ask with a smirk, climbing back into bed.
Wrapping his arm around my waist and curling up behind me, he kisses my neck before
responding, “You know exactly what I’m talkin’ about.”
Softly chuckling to myself, I reach over and switch the lamp on my nightstand off.
“Goodnight, babe. I love you,” I tell him with a knowing smile on my face.
“Goodnight, doll.” He grins against my neck.  “I love you more.”

I will be honest when I first started this book i put it down twice I think I had so much going on that I couldn't focus (This is not a need to focus book) When I finally said no more interruptions and sat and just read I really got in to the book. I will say if you are looking for tons of sex in a book this is it for you. This is the Story of Alexa and Nolan their struggles of a new couple planning a wedding starting a new business and going to school full time. Everything seems to perfect at the beginning of the book I kept waiting for that other shoe to fall waiting for something to happen and it does with a big fat BANG! This is where i got seriously in to the book finally seeing the real true characters coming to life. You see Nolan struggle with some very ugly demons form his past when they smack him dead in the face with out warning.  At one point i really did think it was going to end badly but Alexa really rallys for a young college girl to fight for whats right and to help Nolan come to terms with his past and make things right.  This was a cute romance with some steamy sex .

Kitchen Scandals Blog Tour and Giveaway By: Brooke Cumberland

Kitchen Scandal
Release date: July 1, 2013
Author: Brooke Cumberland
                                            Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

She finally found the one… but he has a hidden secret. Could this be the breaking point for Molly? Has she endeared too much?

Drake and Molly had instant chemistry in Kitchen Affairs, but when his secret goes all wrong, their relationship will be tested, feelings get hurt, and limits will be reached.

Someone tries interfering with their relationship keeping them distant; longing for answers in all the wrong places.

Can they recover their once intense, sensual chemistry? Will love be enough? Secrets, betrayals, and scandals…

Chicago’s hottest couple, Molly & Drake, go through big changes, hidden secrets, and tragedies.


“So, I have a little surprise for you,” Drake announced as I dried the last of the dishes.
“Does it involve… cheesecake?” I asked, really craving some sweet dessert.
“It could…” He rushed over to me and slammed me against the wall, taking me by surprise. He pinned my hands up behind my head with his as he smashed his lips to mine. I felt a sudden tingle between my thighs, ready to divulge into him at any moment. “If it did involve cheesecake, I’d set a piece right here…” He paused, kissing my shoulder. “And right here…” He paused again, kissing the other shoulder. “And possibly down here…” He then trailed his kisses down my chest, moving the fabric of my shirt out of his way with his teeth.
“Oh, sweet Jesus, please tell me we have cheesecake,” I pleaded, urging him down further. He released my hands as his mouth lowered down my body placing tender, sweet kisses on my bare skin. “If you keep this up, I’m going to be forced to take you right here and now.”
“That’d be an awfully sweet view for the neighbors,” he mocked, picking me up and carrying me towards the stairs. His lips locked on mine as he walked us up the staircase. I wondered how he managed up the stairs without looking, but after all the activity we normally had, he was a pro by now.
He slammed us against the mattress, frantically ripping my clothes off. I reciprocated by unbuttoning and unzipping everything off him. Fuck, he wears too many layers. He rubbed his hands over my stomach making me cringe every time he brushed a finger over my bare skin.
“You are seriously torturing me,” I amused, enjoying the sensual desires that were firing up within me.
“Don’t worry, baby. I’m going to take good care of you,” he promised. He hovered on top of me, placing light kisses from one shoulder to the other. He spent the next hour taking his time with me, kissing me, and caressing his hands over my bare silky skin.
This is Book 2 in this series Please note you will have to read book one Kitchen Affairs to understand whats happening in book 2.  Man oh man I am so glad I got to read them back to back because Molly and Drake are hot !  Kitchen Scandals continues the story a yr in to Molly and Drakes relationship they have started their little family together having survived some crazy stories in the press pictures being leaked and black mail.  We get to see more of Drakes POV in this book which was nice to see some background  when he first saw her and what lead up to their first meeting in book one.  There is some mystery during this trying to figure out who is stalking Molly and all the craziness that seems to follow her.  I do have to say the sex stayed crazy hot.  Molly did get to me at times thru the story she just seems so air headed at times.  There are lots of twists and turns in this book and to not give anything away I cant say too much more. I refuse to ruin the story for my readers here is what I can say ........Molly and Drakes relationship gets hotter and stronger.  The twists and turns in there keep you guessing I was half right ! I second guessed my self and shouldn't have *hint* go with your gut is all i will say!!  I really did enjoy reading this I started and before i knew it I was done very quick read for me . I cant wait till Dec to see how their story ends!!!

~COVER REVEAL~ Precious Consequences By : Tamsyn Bester


All it took was one night to change the rest of my life.

One night that created irrevocable consequences.

But some consequences aren’t all bad.

They can be amazing…beautiful… Precious.

I willingly accepted those consequences and wrote a new plan for my life. But
that plan didn’t include Cameron Argent  –  the sexy-as-sin tattooed  playboy who
got under my skin the moment I laid eyes on him. I was headed down a dark and
dangerous road where he was concerned and in the end, our relationship was
inevitable. Despite our dark secrets, our feelings for each other burned brighter than
a thousand stars and left us both naked, vulnerable.

But when my past came rolling back into my life like a Summer storm, I wasn’t sure if
his love for me was enough.
Was he prepared to deal with the consequences of a past I couldn’t regret or would
he walk away with my beating heart in his hands?

Add Precious Consequences to Goodreads: 17830771-precious-consequences



I couldn't pretend that my life hadn't changed. But I also couldn't bring myself to
regret the irrevocable consequences that forever changed me.
I learned the true meaning of selflessness and what it meant to love someone
so much, you'd give up everything for them. I finally understood what it meant to
sacrifice your own heart, just to allow another to beat.
One night.
One stupid decision.
And the most precious of consequences.
