After We Fall 

by Melanie Harlow

Publication Date: November 28th, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

Jack Valentini isn’t my type.

Sexy, brooding cowboys are fine in the movies, but in real life, I prefer a suit and tie. Proper manners. A close shave.

Jack might be gorgeous, but he’s also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a “rich city girl” like me, and he isn’t afraid to say so.

But I’ve got a PR job to do for his family’s farm, so he’s stuck with me for ten days, and I’m stuck with him. His glares. His moods. His tight jeans. His muscles.

His huge, hard muscles.

Pretty soon there’s a whole different kind of tension between us, the kind that has me misbehaving in barns, trees, and pickup trucks. I’ve never done anything so out of character—but it feels too good to stop.

And the more I learn about the grieving ex-Army sergeant, the better I understand him. Losing his wife three years ago left him broken and bitter and blaming himself. He doesn’t think he deserves a second chance at happiness.

But he’s wrong.

I don’t need to be his first love. If only he’d let me be his last.

“Second chances are not given to make things right, but are given to prove that we could be even better after we fall.” —Unknown

MICKI - LORI - RACHEL

Hello everyone! I'm Micki and I'm a book-aholic! I will stay up until all hours of the night, get up early, sit in a parking lot or sneak into the bathroom.. just to read "one more chapter". I love the feeling of being swept away into another world through the words and imaginations of others. I am always chasing my next book "high".

In my other life I am the mother of five, work full time as a nurse and am active in my church and community. I also write in my free time..heehee.. free time.. and independently published my first novel The Winds of Darkness in February 2013.

I really like to jump genres, it's my ADD, I cant stay in one place to long :) YA,NA, Paranormal, Fantasy and Romance are my favorite. I am a HUGE The Walking Dead fan and love to read apocalyptic type stories as well.
+++++++++++++++++ 
Hi there! My name is Lori and I am a wife, a mother of two young children, and work full-time as a secretary. When I’m not busy (which isn’t very often), I try to get in as much reading as possible – usually after the kids go to bed. I’ve also been known to do a little sneak-reading at work (shhh!). I am often stressed and overwhelmed at the number of books on my TBR. So many books, so little time! I love to escape reality and get lost in a world where everything is perfect, especially the men. I love to read anything with romance – whether it be YA, NA, Paranormal, Contemporary, or Erotica. Other interests of mine include music, going to movies, shooting pool, concerts, and traveling. I look forward to making many new book-lovin’ friends and sharing my love of reading with you.
+++++++++++++++++++++++ 
Hello.  I'm Rachel.  I love books. All kinds of books, really. But ever since my late teenage years, when I read my first romance novel by Nora Roberts, I've been obsessed with all things romance. I independently published Home, a contemporary romance novel, in March of 2014. My follow up, Broken Home is set to come out this spring. Somewhere in between my countless hours of reading and writing, I also work part time from home and take care of my husband and two children.

★ LORI'S REVIEW ★

Did I love this story?  Fuckin’ A.

Kate Stewart has written another fantastic book and has made me fall madly in love with her characters.  She’s awesome like that.  I knew after reading book #1 (Anything But Minor), that I would need more of Andy.  And thank goodness Ms. Stewart gave us more of this sexy, romantic, dirty-talking ginger.

I think what I love most about Kate Stewart’s writing, is how she can easily pull me into her stories.  She makes is so damn easy to fall in love – with the story, with the characters…with everything.  The way the story is perfectly written, I am able to experience all those FEELS that I need while reading. 

I was thoroughly entertained with the humor, my heart was squeezed at the emotional moments, the heart-warming parts made me feel good, and I was turned on like crazy with the super steamy scenes.  Good lord, this author can write the sexy love scenes!  

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance with writing that will leave you begging for more. 


p.s. After reading this story, I seriously need some SWAG.


5 HEARTS!

book blurb


Suffocating
I never knew I couldn’t breathe,
Until he forced air into my lungs
Gave me reason
Showed me life.



Carter Hastings was only supposed to be a fling,
A summer of fun, excitement, pleasure
And, it was…
Everything.



It’s hard to walk away,
To leave the one man,
Who resuscitates me.



But I did.
He didn’t reciprocate my feelings.
He didn’t love me.
Not now.
Not ever.


excerpt

“Let me see how much you can bench-press.”

Carter shied away, his smirk brightening his cheeks. “Nah. I’m not dressed to lift weights in jeans and a polo.”

I thrust out my lower lip and batted my lashes at him. The wine eliminated my nervous inhibitions, making it easier to flirt. “Please? You don’t have to lift much. I just want to see it. I think it’s the sexiest thing in the world.”

His tongue swept across his bottom lip seconds before his perfect row of top teeth clamped onto it. The bristles of his beard shifted just below his mouth. My breathing slowed as my attention zeroed in on his actions, wondering what he tasted like. Wondering what it would feel like to have him bite me with those teeth.

A bomb could’ve gone off in the room and I wouldn’t have noticed.

“I’m not adding weight to the bar, so you’ll have to use your imagination.” He strutted over to the bench and straddled it before lowering himself into position. As his eyes locked on mine, he lifted one side of his mouth, and the entire room became stifling with the heat of my desire.

His thick fingers wrapped around the bar above him, and in one swift movement, he lifted it out of the resting grooves. He slowly lowered it to his chest, never taking his eyes off mine, and then raised it high above his head. Even without weight disks, it was sexy as hell. I could’ve watched him for hours, but my feet decided to take control and lead me to him. He continued the motions of working out effortlessly while tracking my movement.

Without the wine at dinner, I probably would’ve given him a compliment and then let him drive me home. But I did have wine. Three glasses—maybe it was four. So nothing prevented me from straddling the bench and climbing onto his lap. I sat there with my hands splayed across his tight abs and stared into his deep forest orbs, not once questioning myself why I’d done it. It had seemed like a good idea, so I went for it.

He dropped the bar back into the brackets, but he didn’t pull his hands away.

“They say if a woman sits on a man while he works out, it increases his testosterone, which leads to muscle growth and improves strength.” The confidence in my tone would’ve surprised me had I been sober. However, it seemed to have completely shocked him into silence while he continued to lie there and watch me. “I figured I’d help you out with that…not like you need more testosterone.”

One minute, his fingers were wrapped tightly around the Olympic bar above him. The next, his hands were gripping my hips so hard my bones ached. He tugged me forward a few inches until my pelvis lined up with his. The harsh movement caused me to topple forward a bit, and I had to hold myself up by his pecs to keep from completely falling into his hard body.

“If you want to measure the amount of testosterone in me…” he gritted out through tight lips and clenched teeth. “…then sit right here and feel my muscle grow.” It was obvious his control was in danger of slipping away.

The sweltering air around us constricted my windpipe and left behind a sheen of perspiration on my chest. It polluted my lungs until my breaths were strained and thick, clogged with lust and heady desire. Had there not been a fire kindling between my legs, I might’ve felt the effects of his words brighten my cheeks and scorch the edges of my ears.

Every muscle in my body froze—I couldn’t move. But I didn’t need to, because he used his hold on me to do it himself. His fingertips dug into the flaming ball of nerve endings at the cusp of my back, just before the rise of my ass. He pressed his thumbs into the hollow spaces above my hips as he slowly rocked me against him. Every push, every pull, added friction to my clit through my jeans and had me growing wetter.

Between the sensations of my nerves misfiring and the pressure building low in my abdomen, I dropped my head forward and released a rumbling moan. My lips parted and a wave of pleasure masked in air escaped. I hadn’t realized my eyelids had fallen closed until my posture changed without warning.

My hands gripped his shirt, but instead of leaning over him, I now sat in an upright position with his face close to mine. Humid air billowed against my cheek, turning my skin sticky and unbearably warm from his strained breaths. My fingers found their way to his shoulders where I held on for the ride he provided. No longer were his ministrations slow, but fast and hard. He didn’t just rocket my hips against his, he pushed his hips upward to add even more friction.

More power.

More pleasure.

Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped.

She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.

She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.

The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.
