Evie


I met him in a snow storm...


We spent forty-eight hours trapped in the back of his pickup truck.

We fought.

We touched.

We fell.


Hard.



Storm

She literally crashed into my life...


The last thing I wanted was a relationship. Especially with a quirky chick who drove me insane. But something about her got under my skin, and into my heart.


And I had to have her.

All of her.

Now.

Falling in love in the back of a truck, just the two of us, was easy.



Dealing with psycho fans, jealous exes, and demons from the past....not so easy. 



*While Loving Storm can be enjoyed as a STANDALONE, it is best read after reading Storm


ARC received for an honest review


Sigh... it has been a while since I read Storm, and this novella reminded me of how much I love his book and the Ashes and Embers series. 

This was the perfect addition to their story, the trials and tribulations of their relationship, and a wonderful glimpse of their love.

It was great to catch little snippets of the guys and gals of the other books in the series too, and I hope to get a little more of all of them in the future. 

Can't wait for more.

Author Bio

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.


Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.

★ SEXY PARTNER-ADVENTSKALENDER 2017 ★





FIFTY SHADES OF GREY FANS - DEUTSCHLAND


wegen der großen Nachfrage in den vergangenen 5 Jahren werden wir wohl auch dieses Jahr wieder den von FIFTY SHADES OF GREY inspirierten
SEXY PARTNER-ADVENTSKALENDER anbieten!


^ hier ein Foto von einem der Adventskalender 2012 ^



HÄ? WAS IST DENN EIN SEXY PARTNER ADVENTSKALENDER??

Der sexy Partner Adventskalender ist ein lustiger Spass für die Vorweihnachtszeit. Und zwar (leider) NUR für Paare!
Auch super als Geschenkidee für die beste Freundin und ihren Schatzi....


Sinn des Adventskalenders ist es, die ROMANTIK und das SEXLEBEN eines Paares etwas aufzulockern, spannender und lustiger zu gestalten und es vor allem aufzuheizen!

 

ALSO:

Ihr erhaltet eine (für beide zusammen) oder 2 (für jeden eine) Keksdose oder Geschenk-Karton gefüllt mit Losen - 26 für die Dame und 26 für den Herrn. Jeden Tag - ab dem 1. Dezember natürlich - öffnet ihr morgens oder wann auch immer GEMEINSAM das zum Datum passende Los!
ACHTUNG: BITTE EURE LOSE NICHT GEMEINSAM LESEN - DENN ES SIND EINIGE GEHEIM-LOSE MIT BEI!!!
Dann bitte entweder sofort - oder zum nächstmöglichen Zeitpunkt die Aufgabe auf den Losen erledigen.
Es sind sexy Lose dabei - entspannende Lose, kreative Lose, lustige Lose usw. 
Wir hoffen, dass ihr dabei euren Spaß haben werdet.
Für den Fall, dass euch einige Lose nicht so zusagen - zu kompliziert oder zu sexy oder zu peinlich sind - haben wir für jeden 2 EXTRA Lose dazu gelegt - die ihr dann einfach an dem Tag benutzen könnt, an dem euch ein Los nicht passt. Wenn ihr die 2 Lose am Ende noch übrig habt, benutzt sie doch einfach weiter bis zum 26.12. 
An manchen Tagen, sind zu dem Inhalt des Loses passende Überraschungen/Geschenkchen dabei.


WIEDERBESTELLER:

Für alle, die den Kalender die letzten 5 Jahre schon bestellt haben- wir hatten dieses Jahr leider überhaupt keine Zeit uns neue Zettel und Überraschungen einfallen zu lassen - also wird für euch nichts überraschendes mehr dabei sein :/ Müsst ihr aber selbst wissen ☺

GEWINNSPIEL:

Jedem Kalender wird ein Nummernkärtchen beigelegt - und Anfang Dezember (bzw. meistens am 15.!) wird dann unter allen Bestellern ein Gewinner ausgelost! Dieses Jahr gibt es u.a. 2 Fifty Shades Christbaumkugeln zu gewinnen!

☺ ☺☺






 PREIS INKLUSIVE VERSAND!

►19,95€◄

als VERSICHERTES DHL Paket bis 2kg!


Wir versenden natürlich auch nach Österreich und in die Schweiz!
allerdings kostet das dann leider 23,50€!!!
(für unversicherten Versand als Großbrief!)

Bei Paypalzahlung kommt 1€ dazu!

Den Kalender gibt es auch für Deutsch-Englische & gleichgeschlechtliche Paare - einfach Bescheid sagen!

Der Preis setzt sich zusammen aus Porto - Überraschungsgeschenkchen - Material - und Arbeitsaufwand (wie z.B. Einkaufen - Postfahren und vor allem die stundenlange HANDARBEIT die in jedem Kalender steckt - wie all die Geschenkchen in Geschenkpapier packen - die Lose alle ausdrucken, ausschneiden, benummern, rollen und mit Bändchen zubinden - passende Kartons suchen oder unpassende passend machen und alles einpacken und zukleben - allein das Rollen der Lose und das Stopfen eines Kalenders, bis der Deckel zu ist, dauert über 1 Stunde - und da ist all die Vor und Nacharbeit noch nicht eingerechnet) Es ist also wirklich ganz schön viel Arbeit - die ich ohne Mami und Schwesterherz nicht schaffen würde ☺




WIE KÖNNT IHR DIE ADVENTSKALENDER BESTELLEN??

Ganz einfach: 

Schreibt eine Nachricht mit
• der Anzahl der Kalender, die Ihr bestellen wollt.
(ACHTUNG! EIN Kalender ist für 2 Personen - also ein Paar braucht nur EINEN Kalender zu bestellen!)
• ob 1 Behältnis für beide zusammen oder für jeden eins.

• Wichtig: Eure Anschrift gleich mitschicken - damit ich nicht 10x hin und herschreiben muss!
Und das alles als PrivatNachricht auf:


oder direkt über diesen Messenger-Link:
Ihr werdet dann eine Nachricht von uns erhalten mit dem Gesamtbetrag und den Zahlungsdaten (Überweisung & Paypal - allerdings kommt bei PP nochmal 1 extra € dazu - wegen der blöden Gebühren)
Sobald das Geld eingeht - gehen die Päckchen schnellstmöglich auf die Post! - bzw. wenn ihr zu den Frühbestellern gehört - die ersten Päckchen gehen so ca. ab Anfang November auf Reisen.


2013er Kalender in flachem Geschenkkarton

(Die sind bei jedem Kalender dabei!)


Hallo ihr 2,
vielen Dank, dass ihr euch für unseren Adventskalender entschieden habt.
Wir hoffen, dass er Euch gefallen wird!

Jeden Tag, vom 1. bis 24. Dezember, zieht ihr morgens zusammen das zum Tag passende ‚Los’. (Rotes Bändchen für die Dame - blaues für den Herrn!) Lest es bitte alleine, da einige Lose Überraschungen für den anderen enthalten werden! Sollte es ein einlösbarer Gutschein sein, oder etwas anderes, was man gleich teilen kann, dann dürft ihr euch natürlich eure Zettel zeigen. Aber die GEHEIMEN ÜBERRASCHUNGSZETTEL behaltet bitte für euch! Sonst geht ja der ganze Spaß verloren! Die Gutscheine müssen nicht unbedingt am gleichen Tag eingelöst werden, die können natürlich aufgehoben werden…das könnt ihr natürlich auch mit anderen Aufgaben machen, ihr müsst nicht direkt alles stehen und liegen lassen - aber wenn es die Situation erlaubt - auf geht’s!
Sollten Euch einige Sachen überhaupt nicht zusagen, wir haben 2 extra Lose dazugelegt.
Ansonsten könnt ihr die 2 am 25.+ 26. 12. öffnen

Sinn des Adventskalenders ist es die ROMANTIK und das SEXLEBEN eines Paares etwas aufzulockern, spannender zu gestalten und es vor allem aufzuheizen!

Wir wünschen euch VIEL SPASS beim Erfüllen der Aufgaben!

🏈 HOT STUFF 🏈 Kim Karr 🏈 #ReleaseBoost 🏈

© Bianca Janeane




27 September 2017
• standalone Football Romance
• Book #3 in the #SexyJerkWorld - a series of 3 completely standalone romances starring Nick, his little footballer brother Lucas and his widowed-dad best friend Jace.

• Cover Model: Andrew Biernat

★★★★★
4.5 Stars

Get ready to fall in love with this new standalone sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.

He's the newly drafted quarterback.
Hot. Arrogant. Too sexy for words.
Ready to score.

I'm an athletic intern, and the coach's daughter.
Driven. Determined. Prepared to conquer the world.
Completely off-limits.

The NFL is full of rules. Rules I've never broken. Never challenged. Never even scratched--until the day Lucas Carrington crashes into my life with his hard body and I-don't-give-a-f*ck attitude.

After I almost injure my father's star player, I volunteer to make sure he's in top shape. At first, it's hell. I don't like his cockiness, his easy smile. Don't like the way he oozes sex. Or how his penetrating eyes follow me everywhere.

That doesn't stop me from wanting him.

He's meant to be a distraction--something to occupy my mind for these precious few remaining hot summer nights before I'm forced to leave football behind forever.

I know what we're doing will lead nowhere good. I know we're crossing the line. And I know my father will never understand.

None of that matters.

But maybe it should.

Rules aren't meant to be broken.

Or are they?




Lucas has just been drafted as a quarterback for Chicago. Football is his life, but he SO wanted out of his home city. He was dreaming of New England.
But it is what it is and now he's fighting with everything he has to secure his spot on the team.
Enter Gillian. She's the coach's daughter and the team's athletic trainer intern.
She's the one helping Lucas to not land on the injured list in his first NFL season - because it was kinda her fault he got hurt in the first place.
Huge attraction on both sides, but neither can risk their future for a little training camp fling... or can they? And will it just be a little fling????

WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH GILLIAN & LUCAS?
WILL THERE BE A HAPPILY EVER AFTER????

READ THE BOOK TO FIND OUT ☺




Adorable!
I loove football and this was just perfect. I started reading the book the day of the first game of the new NFL season and it got me all fired up for later that night! ☺ Even though my Gronk and his Tom lost :(

Lucas is this extremely sexy & cocky college football superstar....


But now here in Chicago, he has to prove his worth. And more importantly, he has to prove that he's not only this cocky college hero. He needs to take his career seriously.
And starting something with the coach's daughter is not really going to help his reputation....

I loved reading this book.
It was funny, sexy, adorable, a bit sad and frustrating and moving.
Perfect!!!
90% of the story takes place at the team's training camp in Florida. So the book is a lot footbally - maayyyybe a tad too much for non-football-loving people! ☺
And it might've been a bit too ... slow for me? Not really slow. Things are happening. And I loved all the things. ☺ But ... I didn't really feel a connection to Gillian and Lucas in the beginning - and I didn't much feel the feels between them either. BUT - that might also be due to my mood that day :/ No idea. I really liked the story!! And it definitely got better the more I read!
Don't let me scare you away.... it was an adorable football romance!!!!

HOT STUFF was an adorable & funny & sexy & moving Football Love Story!!!! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Lucas - this one is MINE!!!!




ARC received for an honest review

It is always a good day when a new Kim Karr story turns up on your kindle.

Now, I am not a football fan at all (soooo don't understand it!) but I dived right into this one.

I am not sure if it was my state of mine (I had been sickish for days) or if it was just this one book, however I really struggled to get started with Hot Stuff.  Once I got about 30% in I was fine, but I did put this one down a few times and it took me a few days to read it - but this is probably just all me!

Once I got going, I really enjoyed Lucas and Gillian's story.  Hot Stuff is funny, sexy, adorable with a bit of sadness thrown in too.

It took me a while to connect with both Lucas and Gillian, again this could just be my mind set as I was reading.

I adored the forbidden, taboo-ness of their relationship - it's nothing bad, but you can understand why it is frowned up.  I just wanted them to decide if what they had was going to be enough for them.

And to find out, you have to read for yourself.

Whilst I did like Hot Stuff, I just didn't love it like I have with other books of Ms Karr.  It was a case of it's not you, it's me with this one.

I look forward to seeing what Ms Karr brings us next.







🏈 TEASY EXCERPT 🏈

Disappointed, she unwrapped her arms from her body, and then pivoted on her toe in the direction of the open door. “Then it looks like we have nothing further to discuss, Lucas.”
I reached for her and tugged her to me. “I don’t want to want you,” I breathed, my mouth hovering just centimeters from hers.
Gillian tried to pull away, but not whole-heartedly. If she wanted me to let her go, I would have, but I knew she didn’t. “Then stop,” she sighed.
I took her face in my hands. “I can’t. I don’t know how to.”
“Neither do I,” she whispered.
Unable to stop myself, I crashed my lips to hers and drove my tongue into her mouth to retrace every inch that I had explored days ago.

Stalk Kim on:




Kim Karr is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. She is a daydreamer. So much so that if daydreaming could be a hobby it would be her favorite. It's how her stories are born and how they take root. An imagination that runs wild is something to be thankful for, and she is very thankful. :)

She grew up in New York and now lives in Florida with her husband and four kids. She's always had a love for reading books and writing. Being an English major in college, she wanted to teach at the college level but that was not to be. She went on to receive an MBA and became a project manager until quitting to raise her family. Kim currently works part-time with her husband and with the rest of her time embraces one of her biggest passions--writing.


Kim wears a lot of hats! Writer, book-lover, wife, soccer-mom, taxi driver, and the all around go-to person of her family. However, she always finds time to read. 

She likes to believe in soulmates, kindred spirits, true friends, and Happily-Ever-Afters. She loves to drink champagne, listen to music, and hopes to always stay young at heart.
