A.J. WARNER ~ Love Interrupted Tour







Logan Brooks and Andrew Eastin shared a once in a lifetime love. After losing her parents and overcoming many obstacles, she could not handle the possibility of losing him, too. She loved him enough to walk away, for both of their sakes.

As tragedy strikes again, Logan is on a downward spiral. Andrew knows she needs protection from herself, and he needs to love her through it, even if only from a distance. 

When fate intervenes and allows them a second chance at love, will Logan and Andrew risk it? The Attraction is undeniable. The sexual tension, relentless. She is everything he has ever wanted. He sweeps her off her feet, renewing all that was lost.

Andrew promised her forever, but can words ever be enough? Can love prevail when life has different plans—bringing on more pain and emotions than imaginable? When lies and deceit corrupt the one thing sacred to them, plans will be ruined, promises will be broken, and hearts will be shattered.

What happens when the unknown threatens all of their dreams? Will Logan and Andrew survive their love, interrupted?














He slowly began to trace the outline of my breast with his finger. I couldn’t speak, just gave a slow nod, keeping my eyes on his. I was at the intersection, of “oh shit” and “please don’t stop” when Andrew lifted off me and began unbuttoning my shirt. Still eyeing me as if he needed continued approval, he slowly worked his way down. Following every undone button, he placed a slow soft kiss on my bare skin. Once he finished, he pushed the shirt open, and stared in admiration. Andrew had never seen me bare. Ever. He brought his mouth to my breast, and slowly took it in. I gasped at the foreign yet wonderful feeling. He flicked his tongue across my nipple then moved to the other one. His hands were making their way to my lacy panties. He slid his finger across them, slightly brushing the skin on my lower stomach. My eyes closed, and I arched my back, preparing for what came next.

Emma Nichols ~ The Sinful Series Spotlight + Reviews










Sin at Sea:

When Alysin decided to surprise her boyfriend at work with dinner, the surprise was on her. Since he was going at it with his secretary on the conference table, she packed a bag and called her BFF. Jolie and Alysin had been traveling the country, working as digital nomads for ten years ever since graduation. Taking this as a sign it was time for a new move, they decided to take a cruise, regroup, and make a plan.

Then she meets Mr. Bedroom Eyes. Following her lead, they pretend to be married so that she can rid herself of the guy who started hitting on her before the boat left the dock. Though it was supposed to be a momentary arrangement, he asks her to take it one step farther. Then another and another. The cruise promises to be memorable in every way that matters. 

Along the way, Alysin learns that she won't have to fake an orgasm if she's with someone who knows what to do, that not all men suck, but the best ones suck really well, and that sometimes what starts out as something pretend, can fast become something completely real. Will the woman who lives life with no regrets, regret that she made that stupid rule about not exchanging names and contact info?

Vixen in Vegas:

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?

SIN AT SEA

What a sexy little number this is. Right off the cuff I knew this was a bedroom book lol.

I like a good Erotica book that has a fab story to go with it.
This is the first book written by Emma Nichols and its a must read. With all the sex that goes on in this book, which there is a lot, we go from F/F, M/F/F, and even M/F/M/F plus a lot of hot hot sex from Alysin and Mr Bedroom Eyes.

We start off with Alysin who catches her boyfriend F***ing his secretary, well this it for Alysin, she does what she does, runs, packs her bags and she's off with her BFF Jolie.

Alysin and Jolie have been friends for over 10 years and they both have each others backs, making a pact: "Never Settle and Never Settle Down"

After picking up Jolie they head off into the sunset (You could so see them doing a Thelma & Louise.) They decideto take a cruise, and make a new plan.

Alysin goes off on her own, having to be rescued by sex on legs lol but Alysin calls him Mr Bedroom Eyes, he rescues her from a jerk who just won't  take a hint by being her fake husband. But Mr Bedroom Eyes has other ideas and persuades her to carry on with their fake marriage for the rest of the trip.

But can they stick to the rules. Don’t exchange names or contact information, and don't fall in love.!!!

This was a quick and heart racing read that will leave you blushing for hours lol in a good way.


VIXEN IN VEGAS 

Well what can I say, Emma has done it again, I loved it, I could not wait to start this one.
Wow what a rollercoaster of emotions this book took me on. If you have not read Sin at Sea go and grab a copy now before hitting this one.

We kick off right where Sin at Sea ends, after the cruise the girls start packing up so they can head to Vegas. Alysin has alot of fear and hesitation about the whole thing with BE.
Can she let herself go long enough to allow herself to have a real go at a relationship.

Jolie is Sin's rock and makes her see sense all through this book lol, she is cool - we all should have a best friend like that aww. In a way I did feel sorry for Jolie having to put up with Sin's for 10years having a different flavor of the month, but hey thats what best friends are for, lol.

They get to Vegas and its hot as soon as Sin sees BE they get all hot and heavy yes there is alot of sex but its totally different from the sex they were having in the last book.
They decide to break all the rules in this one and you finally found out BE name (but I am not sharing sorry you will have to read the book to find out)

After spending some time in Vegas BE wants to show Sin his home in California so they go off for another adventure. They discover so much about each other on this trip, can their love keep them together or will it all fall apart...

That was a great second book. I can not say any more but wow, I so did not see that coming and I was kinda shocked. This is a fab book and would highly recommended it...

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.

What a sweet read this was, with that being said this is L.Chapman's first book and it it's fab.

We kick off with the prologue of Megan which shows us the fun loving Megan who was happy and in love.

Next the story starts; Megan and her best friend Jenny go shopping in London to settle the last of the plans for Jenny's wedding. Later that evening the girls decide to go out for a drink in a nearby bar. While at the bar Megan could not take her eyes off this sexy good looking man and then their eyes lock on one another.

Mark sees this beautiful woman come in to the bar and he can not stop looking at her, in no time he goes over to her. Mark's drawn to her, he just has to know more about this woman.

Megan had been crushed from her past relationship, she can't let her guard down to trust anyone else. So she makes it clear to Mark that they can be only friends. But Mark does not give up that easily, so they spend most of their time together while Megan is in London and slowly she starts letting her walls down.

Well the story doesn't end there, that's all I am saying as I don't want to give the game away lol.

This really was a fun book to read, full of ups and downs to keep you wanting more.
I really enjoyed L. Chapman's style of writing the detail on characters the lust,the strength some of them show really work's. I honestly cannot wait to see what the next book brings.

With that being said I would like to make a point, we all have different ways of writing and speaking; I am from Kent and L.C is from Yorkshire and there is lots of things we say and write differently even though we are both live in the UK.
