Cover Reveal & Giveaway: KISSING MADELINE by Lex Martin

Book 3 of the Dearest series finally has a cover. I’m so happy to be part of the cover reveal of KISSING MADELINE.

 Title: Kissing Madeline (Dearest #3)

Author: Lex Martin

Release Date: April 27, 2015

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Cover Design by: Krista Ritchie

What’s the worst thing about wanting a sexy NFL football player? Everyone else wants him, too.

After catching my boyfriend getting deep-throated by a skanky cage girl, I’ve learned my lesson – never date a professional athlete. Never. Besides, I have more important things to worry about, like not blowing my shot to make it as a broadcast reporter. I won’t let anything get in my way, not even the new “it boy” of the NFL and my hot-as-hell neighbor.

 

What’s the worst thing about getting death glares from his new neighbor? It doesn’t make him want her any less.

I’ve worked my ass off to make it to the pros. The last thing I need is the complication of a relationship, especially since my last one was a total train wreck. But I can’t stop thinking about the feisty girl next door with the smart mouth. And I’d love nothing more than to show her what to do with that mouth.

 

Friends with benefits might be the best idea he’s ever had. Or the worst.

 

Kissing Madeline is a companion novel to DEAREST CLEMENTINE and FINDING DANDELION. Each book is a stand-alone.

When soccer all-star Jax Avery collides with Dani Hart on his twenty-first birthday, their connection is instantaneous and explosive. For the first time in years, Jax isn’t interested in his usual hit-it and quit-it approach.

But Dani knows better. Allowing herself a night to be carefree and feel the intensity of their attraction won’t change anything when it comes to dealing with a player. So when Jax doesn’t recognize Dani the next time he sees her, it shouldn’t be a total shock. The fact that he’s her new roommate’s brother? That’s a shock.

Dani doesn’t regret that night with Jax, just the need to lie about it. Since her roommate has made it clear what she thinks about her brother’s “type” of girl, the last thing Dani wants is to admit what happened.

Jax knows he’s walking a fine line on the soccer team. One more misstep and he’s off the roster, his plans to go pro be damned. Except he can’t seem to care. About anything… except for the one girl who keeps invading his dreams.

Despite Jax’s fuzzy memory of his hot hookup with his sister’s friend, he can’t stay away from her, even if it means breaking his own rules. But there are bigger forces at work–realities that can end Dani’s college career and lies that can tear them apart.

Jax realizes what he’s losing if Dani walks away, but will he sacrifice his future to be with her? And will she let him if he does?

FINDING DANDELION, the second book in the Dearest series, is a stand-alone novel. This New Adult romance is recommended for readers 18+ due to mature content.

Twenty-year-old Clementine Avery doesn’t mind being called bitchy and closed off. It’s safe, and after being burned by her high school sweetheart and stalked by a professor her freshman year of college, safe sounds pretty damn good.

Her number one rule for survival? No dating. That is until she accidentally signs up for a romance writing class and needs material for her latest assignment. Sexy RA Gavin Murphy is more than happy to play the part of book boyfriend to help Clem find some inspiration, even if that means making out…in the name of research, of course.

As Gavin and Clem grow closer, they get entangled in the mystery surrounding a missing Boston University student, and Clem unwittingly becomes a possible target. Gavin tries to show Clem she can handle falling in love again, but she knows she has to be careful because her heart’s at stake…and maybe even her life.

DEAREST CLEMENTINE is a stand-alone novel with two companion novels. This New Adult romance is recommended for readers 18+ due to mature content.

Top Ten Tuesday (41): Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read in 2014

Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read in 2014…

 

 jellicoe road the piper's son
MELINA MARCHETTA. This is a such a no-brainer. She’s one of the greatest author finds ever for me. These two books have become two of my favorite books of all time.

 

shatter me unravel me ignite me
TAHEREH MAFI. I’ll never forget this author for bringing to life or to the pages Warner.

 

the opportunist
TARRYN FISHER. Gosh, this book. And though I haven’t read the other two books yet I can say, gosh, this whole series. Her writing and her characters will leave an indelible mark on you as a reader. Her story will stay with you long after you’ve turned that last page.

 

midnight pursuits midnight action one night of scandal
ELLE KENNEDY. Her kind of combustible romance and writing are just the perfect match to my romantic heart. She knows how to tell a story and she does it so very well.

 

officer off limits asking for trouble staking his claim
TESSA BAILEY. Her Brazen Line novels are to die for. I love how she blends the sweet, the sexy, and the completely romantic.

Top Ten Sequels I Can’t Wait To Get…

 

the winner's crime
THE WINNER’S CRIME (The Winner’s Curse #2) by Marie Rutkoski. This is a no-brainer. I’ve fallen head over heels with The Winner’s Curse and just reading the very short excerpt from Book #2 makes me want to read it more. And soon, please.

 

CRUSHED (Redemption #2) by Lauren Layne. I didn’t think Michael and Olivia were getting their own stories. But after reading Olivia’s, I can’t wait to read Michael’s and see what Lauren Layne has in store for him.

 

P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before #2) by Jenny Han. That ending from Book #1 just left me wanting more, there’s just no other way to feel about it. There’s more ‘self’ and other people to discover for our heroine. I can’t wait.

 

ANTICIPATION (Satisfaction #2) by Sarah Mayberry. After finishing Book 1, I had a feeling that Blue and Eddie deserve their own stories and it was even better to find out that Sarah Mayberry is doing a book on these two, together! I’m so excited!

 

ROCK HARD (Rock Kiss #2) by Nalini Singh. After reading Rock Addiction, I knew something was brewing behind the scenes between Charlotte and her new boss. I knew it!
