Lauren Blakey’s Playing with her Heart’s new cover

So Lauren Blakely decided that the cover for Playing with her Heart just didnt portray the essence of the story. While I had no problem with the cover, I sure as hell LOVE the new one. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think!

New Playing With Her Heart cover for Sept 19 reveal

ABOUT PLAYING WITH HER HEART:

From the NYT & USA Today Bestselling romance author, a sizzling and addictive story of a woman with a broken past and the man who can’t fight his attraction to her…

Twenty-three year old rising theater star Jill McCormick has built a life out of pretending. Pretending she’s happy, pretending she’s not haunted by the dark secret that shattered her world six years ago. But then she comes face to face with her new director – sexy, sophisticated, possessive, all-alpha Davis Milo. He tries to resist the actress he’s cast, but the attraction between them is too powerful, and soon their private rehearsals spiral into new, forbidden territory. The passionate connection, the intense chemistry is undeniable, and it hits them anywhere, and everywhere – in the theater, on the piano, in the limo, in the restaurant…But the tragedy in Jill’s past stands between them. Davis has walls too, so they can either face their fears together, or risk the deepest love and greatest passion either has ever felt…

EXCERPT:

From Lauren: “This short excerpt is from chapter 12 when Davis unclips Jill’s hair, and it served as the inspiration for the new look for the cover. To me, this short moment says so much about their relationship.”

He leans into the car, reaches for the seat belt, and pulls it across my chest, buckling me in. He’s inches from me, and he smells cold like the night air. But he also smells the way a man should at the end of the day: a little bit of sweat, a lot of work, and all raw power. He brings one hand behind my head and unclips my hair, letting it fall over his fingers. I tremble from his touch as a shiver runs down my spine. “I like your hair up and I like your hair down,” he whispers to me, breaking down all my resistance in an instant.

I can see this playing out if I do nothing—I’ll spend it rewinding this moment and putting it on repeat all night long. But I don’t want to go home with only a memory to feed my body, and I can’t stand the thought of this night ending too soon.

I make my choice. There’s only one choice. “Do you want to share?” I ask, praying he lives in the same direction.

“You’re downtown, right?”

I nod.

“Me too.”

ABOUT LAUREN BLAKELY:

Warrant for Love

romantic heroes

Today I am taking part in the Romantic Heroes Blog Tour. The Blog Tour is celebrating the books of the wonderful Sheryl Browne. This is the second of Sheryl’s books that I have read, the first being Learning to Love.

Warrant to Love

WfL

What it’s about

Love, blackmail, lies, adultery, entrapment.
Three couples in a twisting story that resolves perfectly.

Life for Paul sounds like your typical country song. He comes from a broken home, his wife is divorcing him, he’s got no place to live, he’s losing custody of his son, and his sergeant, who’s sleeping with his wife, is a loud-mouthed braggart who won’t let up on him – not even at work.

Leanne’s caught her (now) ex cheating on her again, but before she can give him the what-for, she’s wrongfully arrested for soliciting – by Paul and his partner. One thing leads to another and things could be looking up for Paul, except for Leanne’s friends – quarrelling mom Nicky and financial goddess Jade – have it out for her ex.

Leanne wants closure, Paul wants a home, and Nicky and Jade want revenge. Blackmail, lies, adultery, entrapment. Will it all work out in the end or will Paul uphold the law? It sounds like he needs a Warrant for Love.
Warrant for Love – Amazon.co.uk Amazon.com

What I thought


What a delightful offering from Sheryl Browne. Right from the start it was just one of those books that you get swallowed up in and suddenly that ‘just one more chapter’ turns into half a book. That half a book means there is no dinner when hubby comes home from work. Sheryl rights the every day hero so well. He isn’t Superman, Adonis and he doesn’t have any crazy fetishes or be blindingly good looking. He is your regular man on the street. I like this, it makes the book so very true to life. Paul could be any police officer down at your local station. OK he is battling some issues but again they are real life issues. They way Sheryl has him work though these issues is her gift. We get to see the more vulnerable side of our hero and sure if anything that only endears him more to us – right?

Leanne is your regular woman as well. Full time job, struggling to make ends meet – especially as the asshole she was dating has fleeced her out of a significant amount of money. She has a teenaged son and is worried about how she is going to come up with his university fees. Again these are you everyday problems. However leanne meets Paul, in very unusual circumstances and she asks him to be her lodger. Yeah yeah I know what you are thinking and yes you are right. But the interesting part of this scenario is their journey! It really is compelling.

We also get to meet Leanne’s sister Nicky and her husband Steve who are struggling through their own issues and with two teenagers and a toddler it is hard for them to find the time to sort things out. We also meet best friend Jade, complete Commitmentphobe. She doesn’t want a man in her life, however Saun wants to be in her life so we see how they come to an understanding.

Sheryl just has this way about writing that makes turning the pages of her books so effortless. They are always well written, void of any fluff or unnecessary dramatics. Really they truly are a joy to read.
