Blog Tour & Giveaway: Out of Line by Jen McLaughlin

out of line

 

synopsis

Desperate to break free…

I’ve spent my entire life under my father’s thumb, but now I’m finally free to make my own choices. When my roommate dragged me to my first college party, I met Finn Coram and my life turned inside out. He knows how to break the rules and is everything I never knew I wanted. A Marine by day and surfer by night, he pushes me away even as our attraction brings us closer. Now I am finally free to do whatever I want. I know what I want. I choose Finn.

Trying to play by the rules…

I always follow orders. My job, my life, depends on it. I thought this job would be easy, all the rules were made crystal clear, but when I met Carrie Wallington, everything got muddy. She’s a rule I know I shouldn’t break, but damn if I don’t inch closer to the breaking point each time I see her. I’m ready to step out of line. And even worse? I’m living a lie. They say the truth will set you free, but in my case…

The truth will cost me everything.

I often get asked who I would cast if Out Of Line was made into a movie. Well, it just so happens I have the perfect couple in mind for Finn and Carrie.

As we know, Finn has dark blond/light brown hair. Has lots of muscles and quite a bit of tattoos. He’s fit and sweet yet sexy as all hell at the same time. That’s not asking for much, is it? Haha!! Here’s my favorite Finn in Hollywood. Liam Hemsworth:

Isn’t he perfect? He’s already a surfer and he could get henna tattoos for the film.

And next would be Carrie. She was a bit trickier for me, but I think I found the perfect one. Emma Roberts:

out of line female

I think she has the perfect look for how Finn describes Carrie, and she could easily be the fun, fearless, caring character that Carrie is.

Who do you see as Finn and Carrie? I’d love to know!

Filled with the dreams of youth, and surrounded by the love of her family and friends, Payton Martin’s world was simple. When someone closest to her is cruelly betrayed and unjustly sent away, life afterwards proves never to be the same for everyone involved, beginning a series of events beyond her control. Somehow, through the years that follow, Payton manages to deal with the heartache of loss and rejection, all while balancing her new situation, and becoming her own woman. 

Finally settled into a life that she could only once imagine, Payton is content; especially when the promise of love is presented by someone she admires and trusts. Nothing ever goes to plan, though. Once again she is faced with surviving circumstances, and choices others make on her behalf. This time, they ultimately take her across the ocean, to settle in a harsh new land.

I was born in Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia, and raised in Alice Springs (the very center of the country). I have always loved reading and telling “tall tales” and wrote poetry all the time. My greatest influence was my grandpa Majid who kept us entertained all the time with his stories, music and passion for writing. 
I didn’t tell anyone I wrote when I started because I was to shy, I have no idea why I was like that. I don’t care now, I have stories to tell and I want to share them. I am not, and never will profess to be an awesome writer, but I will try to entertain, while bringing to life the history of my country, one page at a time.

Vixen in Vegas by Emma Nichols

vixen in vegas

 

synopsis

It was supposed to be a week of simply being, of living in the moment, and enjoying every minute while it lasted. Of course, that kind of intoxication can have lingering effects. For Sin, she found herself wanting to break all the rules, to extend her time with the stranger who stole her heart. Vegas was just the right kind of place to take such a gamble. Meeting up with BE at the gondolas was a risk. Love went against everything they had promised, but the best things in life can’t be planned.

Soon Alysin will be tested.

After guarding her heart for so long, she finally let a man in and discovered that the worst things in life happened when she least expected them. When she walked in on BE with another woman and overheard their heated conversation, she suddenly remembered there was a reason she made these rules.

Will broken rules lead to broken hearts or will she realize that though love was a gamble, she was all in?

excerpt

A server stopped by the table then.  The guy was cute, I guess.  From his actions, I was certain he was used to women falling all over him.  Poor guy.  He wasn’t going to be able to flirt his way to a fat tip tonight.  I was impervious to the charms of other men and
Jolie…lesbian.

“What can I get for you, gorgeous?”  He asked, flashing a huge smile
that exposed perfectly white straight teeth.

“Just a Coke for me,” I said.  Then I turned my attention once more to Jolie.

She rolled her eyes so hard, her entire head bobbed.  “Please.  And we need some Irish Nachos…extra sour cream.”  She studied the appetizers a moment more before shrugging and conceding.  “And that should do it…but I reserve the right to order a brownie sundae later.”  She nodded and smirked.

My eyebrows rose.  “A brownie sundae?  Since when?”

“Since you are in mourning,” she announced.

“I’m not in mourning!  What do I have to be upset about?  We just returned from an amazing cruise.  I had some of the hottest sex of my life.  And I’ll be seeing him again in a week!”  I crossed my arms over my chest.  “We’re starting a new adventure.  Life is good.”

“Yes, life is good, but you don’t really believe that.  This is why you are so out of sorts.  You are having doubts.  I can see it.”  She frowned at me.

“How would you know?”  I sniffed.  “I never have doubts.  I am the picture of confidence.”  I leaned back in the booth in an attempt to project a picture of calm and cool.

She laughed at me then, a big hollow sound, the mocking one.  “I’ve known you forever.  The last ten years it has been the two of us and your flavor of the month.  This guy, BE, he’s not a flavor of the month.  BE is the spice of life.  You know it, and I know it.  I know how unsettling this is for you.  Just know that he won’t let you down.  He’s not going to stand you up.  You can focus on doing what needs to be done and soon, you will be together again.”

“We’ll see,” I said with a shrug, trying to brush it off like it didn’t matter.  Oh, but the girl in me wanted to beg Jolie for more…more reassurance, more pretty words that would soothe my tortured soul.

myreview

I will admit that I have preconceived notion of how I thought Vixen in Vegas by Emma Nichols would go. I thought it would pick up right where Sin at Sea ended and then go on to be a predictable story. Boy, am I glad that I was wrong!!!

“I’ve never been in love.” I admitted. “I’m scared of losing me to be with you.” I was silent after that admission. It took a lot for me to share that.

“Well, if it makes you feel any better…I don’t make a habit of falling in love. I tried it once. It didn’t go the way I expected. I’ve been a little gun shy ever since. For you, I’d take a bullet. You are a once in a lifetime kind of love,” he said quietly. “Promise me, you’ll meet me.”

This exchange happened between Sin and BE before they were scheduled to meet up in Las Vegas. Sin was starting to have second thoughts and BE not only convinced her but he also me that she needed to meet him and that his feelings for her were indeed real. So, from this point forward we knew that some hot and heavy physical action was about to go down!!

But, there is where the surprise happens. Nichols takes the physical chemistry and the emotional connection that we read during Sin at Sea and took it to a much deeper level. I was simply amazed by the anger, the sadness, the joy, and the laughter that I experienced in this novella. This was a perfect sequel to Sin at Sea!!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Vixen in Vegas in exchange for my honest review.

What made her decide to be an erotica author?
Simple.
How else was she going to parlay her two favorite past times into a career?
Emma is single and loving it. Like her first character, Alysin, Sin for short, she doesn’t believe in settling or in settling down. She loves to indulge in her passions whenever the mood strikes and enjoys keeping all of life’s cliche moments spicy.
Known for her sense of humor, Emma surrounds herself with friends whose antics often become the source of book fodder. Her ideal situation would be to explore the Caribbean while writing. She pursues that dream daily.
