The Boss’s Daughter by Aubrey Parker #BookBlitz and #Giveaway

The Boss’s Daughter by Aubrey Parker
Inferno Falls, #1
Publication date: October 27th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Goodreads // Amazon // B&N // iTunes

Riley’s whole life is ahead of her … if the temptation of her father’s new protege doesn’t prove to be too much to stand

Ever since losing her mother as a girl, Riley James has lived for her father, Mason. The loss has nearly consumed them both, and they’ve only survived it together. But while Mason is moving into his twilight years, Riley is still young and ready for her life to begin. Her father’s shared grief — once the warm embrace she needed — now feels like a set of shackles that are starting to chafe.
Brandon Grant is smack dab in the middle of his life’s best years. So far they’ve been devoted to the construction company where he’s dedicated the last several years. A product of the foster care system, Brandon comes from a dark enough past that he can never let anyone get too close — except his boss, Mason James, who steps into the void his father was never there to fill. After years of back breaking work, Brandon is finally about to land the promotion he’s always wanted. Soon, he’ll finally start living for himself, and find someone to share in the happiness he’s sure to earn … eventually.
But love can’t always wait …
Just as Brandon is being groomed for the position, he meets the sweetest, most charming, and electrifying girl he’s ever seen — and realizes, with the crushing, sinking knowledge that she’s Riley James, the boss’s daughter.
While Riley might be ready to move on, her father can’t, and he makes it abundantly clear that Brandon’s not to go near her. As he spends more and more time in the office, preparing to become the company’s big man, he clocks more time with Riley. Soon, their spark ignites to inferno.
Riley and Brandon must decide if their happiness still means what they’ve always thought, or if they’ve finally found the person who can turn their lives into something more.
Dive heart-first into Inferno Falls’ romantic firestorm with the first novel in this thrilling new series. Download The Boss’s Daughter NOW!

 TEASERS

EXCERPT
I’m such an idiot.
I’m a dumb, impulsive, ridiculous little girl.
I knew better than this, but here I am.
I’m sitting on the edge of the tailgate, looking east, seeing the sky turn slightly more orange, slowly losing its red. We’re still a while from sunrise, and I hope Brandon and Bridget finish what they’re doing long before then. Right now, it’s dark enough that Bridget couldn’t see my eyes when she passed, and we were both able to act like we each hadn’t noticed the other. Bridget pretended I was hanging out back here like cargo. I pretended too. Nothing happened. Just two people out for a ride, with one in the pickup, when something went wrong and they ended up stuck for hours and hours of nothing at all.
The truck’s hood is up. There’s a white-yellow glow around its edges from where I’m sitting, and in the dark it’s bright enough to be stark. I can see the ground around them, but not their faces. Brandon had some sort of hanging light. He had to ask me to move so he could grab it from a toolbox. His voice was flat and courteous. I moved away, practically apologizing. We’re stupidly civil. Nothing makes people polite like having sex that shouldn’t have been had.
I don’t know what came over me. One moment, I was angry, and the next I was ripping his shirt open. We were arguing then he was kissing my neck. I had plenty of chances to stop it. Everything before my panties came off. Everything before he was inside me.
Even as ashamed and stupid and guilty as I feel, my mind keeps going there. My mind keeps seeing the way he looked. My body keeps reliving the sensations. I don’t have a long sexual history, but last night — if it counts as last night this early in the morning — would have stood out even in a whore’s resume. I didn’t think lust like that existed outside of movies. I felt helpless. I should have stopped it, of course. But I couldn’t.
And Brandon? He just fucked the boss’s daughter. He should have stopped it, too.
The dirty words circle my head like a halo.
He fucked the boss’s daughter.
He fucked me.
It should be more tender than that, but it wasn’t. And my traitorous mind wants to keep repeating the images, the words, the shameful lack of restraint. This was a terrible idea, and both of us knew better. If anyone finds out, Brandon’s career will be over, and I’ll never take over my father’s company. Dad won’t fire me like he will Brandon, of course, but I’ll be a permanent intern. A receptionist or clerk at best. He’ll never take me seriously. He’ll never look at me and see as more than a teenager, even once I hit thirty. He’ll even pretend to understand. He’ll say I’m a grown woman and allowed to be with whomever I choose. But that won’t change the fact that I fucked his protégé.
I want it to be something different. I want to say we made love. But I can’t. I can barely even say we had sex. No. That was animal. Primal. The kind of thing that a sensible up-and-coming, college-educated, responsible executive should have been able to resist because not to was the pinnacle of poor judgment. A key example of letting base instincts overcome reason. Dangerous impulsiveness. Which was fine, except that it wasn’t the kind of thing anyone wanted near the controls of a corporation.
And still I can’t stop thinking of Brandon’s hands on me. I can’t stop thinking of his lips. I can’t stop thinking of the rhythm of our passion. I can’t stop thinking of how strong he’d felt. That sense of delirious helplessness, as if I couldn’t have fled if I’d wanted.
Brandon climbs into the cabin.
The engine starts.
I hop down to see what’s next, but by the time I make it to where they were working, my eyes averted, the truck is pulling away with Brandon at the wheel.
I find myself facing Bridget. Her car is behind her, still running.
“Come on,” she whispers, her voice husky, barely audible beneath the sound of an idling engine and Brandon’s departure, “I’ll take you home.”

TTT: Halloween Freebie

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic is a Halloween themed freebie. I chose to do Top Ten Horror Books. There are several Stephen King books on the list but I really enjoy his writing and they are definitely terrifying.

1. It by Stephen King. Who could like clowns after reading this? 
2. Insomnia by Stephen King. This book will cause you to have insomnia which will just creep you out even more! (or at least it did me)
3. Finders Keepers by Stephen King. The entire Bill Hodges trilogy is pretty creepy but this one was my favorite. 
4. The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris. This book is just fantastic. 
5. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. 

6. The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson. The story of what happens when you move into a murder house. 
7. Horns by Joe Hill. This brings new meaning to the phrase “your own personal hell”. 
8. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. 

9. Dracula by Bram Stoker. 

10. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.

Bad Boy Daddy by Chance Carter #Review

Title: Bad Boy Daddy
Author: Chance Carter

Genre: 
Format: eBook, 384 pages

Publisher: Chance Carter (self published)
Publication Date: October 3rd 2015


I received an eARC copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. 


He wanted a baby. I needed a man
Faith 
The first time I saw Jackson, I hated his guts. He was everything I could never have. Pure, panty-wetting, manhood. And I was trapped in a loveless relationship with his worst enemy. I never would have dreamed he craved my womb so badly he was willing to do anything for it. 
Jackson 
My father’s death taught me a lot of things. Most importantly, I needed a child. I had to have a son before my enemies caught up with me. So when Faith came begging for protection, I knew exactly what I wanted. I yearned for her body. Lust raged through me like a wildfire. I longed to make her pregnant with my child. I gave her an offer she couldn’t refuse. A life for a life. My protection, in exchange for everything she had to offer. I’d die for her, but she would give me a son. 
I took her womb. I never suspected she’d take my heart.

Review

Faith wanted out of a bad relationship when she runs into Jackson. He agrees to help her out but only if she’ll give him a child. The insta love thing is done all the time so that part I could handle. The part that bothered me was the “I know I got you pregnant” thing after like 2 days together. I know that it is possible to get pregnant that quickly but I also know that some people struggle with it and have a hard time. 

The book had some really steamy moments in it which I loved. I didn’t like that Jackson was constantly telling Faith that she was his and he owned her. In my opinion she was way to submissive to him which is probably how she ended up in the relationship with Wolfe at the beginning of the book. 

There is a time jump of 12 years in this book and I find it hard to believe that two people could still be so in love after very little contact for that amount of time that they don’t move on. I guess it’s possible but I just don’t know. 

Overall, I thought the book was good and it is a debut novel so I will definitely be giving the author another chance. 

Rating: 3.5 stars
