Early readers are loving Izzy’s story! I can’t tell you how excited I am to know this. Every release fills me with the jitters, worried you’ll hate my work. Reading reviews can be a dangerous thing as not everyone will enjoy my books and that’s okay. Knowing it’s okay doesn’t stop the emotions, but it is okay.

To celebrate the positive response here is an EXCERPT to Unlucky in Love:

“How many fucking frogs do I have to kiss?” I snap and fall on the couch.

Val raises her glass of wine out of the way, and I steal it. I close my eyes as the large gulp I’ve taken runs down my throat.

“That’s mine!”

I glare at her before taking another sip and handing it back. “Thanks.”

Leaning my head against the back of the couch, I sigh. I despise dating. I’m over it. Why can’t I find my Mr. Right, so we can start our lives together?

Val wraps her arm around my shoulder and pulls me to her. I lay my head on her and stare at the TV, not really paying attention to whatever she’s watching.

“What happened, honey?”

“Everything. Nothing,” I whisper, exhausted from another emotional roller coaster. “I’m just over it all. All these fuckers,” I say, raising my locked phone. “All they want is a quick hookup. Which, sure I could see the appeal if they didn’t show up in popped collars or hopped up on ’roids.”

I decided to start dating again two months ago. At first, I sat back and observed the wink emojis and messages that came through the app. Tonight, I relented to coffee with Tristan. We’d chatted daily for about a week, so I figured why not? I mean, he was cute and seemed nice.

“What was wrong with this one?” Val asks as she mutes the TV. “Did he not look like his picture?”

I sigh. “No, he matched the picture, dimples and all. He’s cute—not hard to look at him.”

“So what happened?”

“I arrived a few minutes early and found a table in the corner. I’ve been reading the book you suggested, so I wanted to finish it. I figured it would help me relax. Tristan got there about five minutes late. Not a biggie since I was reading. He spotted me and asked what I was drinking before buying me another one.” I lift my head and smile at Val. “It was really sweet.” Placing my head back on her shoulder, I continue. “We sat and chatted for about an hour. He told me a little about growing up in California, and I told him about growing up here in Vegas. You know, all the simple get-to-know-you things we hadn’t already talked about yet. He heard my stomach growl. It was so embarrassing, Val. Anyway, he suggested we go to the diner around the corner. I was having a nice time with him, so why not?”

“Everything sounds like it was going great for a first date,” Val said.

I nod. “It was. Tristan asked for a booth and slid in next to me. You know, like those old-timey movies? Having him so close made me nervous in a good kind of way. I liked what I was seeing from him, so feeling his body next to mine was great.”

“Until?” Val asks, sensing I’m beating around the bush.

“Until after our meal when his hand landed on my thigh.”

“Oh?”

“Yup, it surprised me; you know, moving a little fast. But my creeper alarm wasn’t going off. When I didn’t say anything, he turned and kissed me. It was an overall good first kiss. Sweet, not pushy, no slobber. You name it.” I sigh. “He ends the kiss and wraps his arm around me, which was okay. We talked a little more and then he kisses me again.” I can’t say the words. Anger bubbles up, and I jump to my feet. “Ugh!”

“Izzy, what the hell happened?” Val asks, leaning forward, her forehead creasing with worry.

I meet her eyes. Val is my best friend, and I love her like she’s a blood relative. She has always been there when I needed her, and right now is one of those times.

“But then, well—then his other hand inched up toward my crotch and he said, ‘Let’s go to the bathroom and fuck.’”

Val sends me a blank stare and blinks. “Let’s go to the bathroom and fuck?”

I nod.

“And you told him what?”

“Well, at first I was in shock. Nothing at all in the three hours with him led me to believe he was an asshole who was just trying to get in my pants.”

Val clucks her tongue. “Oh, young grasshopper… Every guy wants into a woman’s pants. The good ones and the bad ones.”

Lucky in Love.

That’s the name of the dating app I picked, hoping to find Mr. Better Than Average so I can hold off planning my future as a cat lady.

I’ve been distracted eyeballing a tall, dark, and handsome Latin hottie who works in the library with me. He is way out of my league, and a woman has needs if you know what I mean.

Finding a man shouldn’t be hard when all I have to do is swipe left or right. It’ll weed out the slimy men who have Bad Date written all over them.

Yeah, I’m learning quickly that I’m rather unlucky in love after all. The men I pick need warning labels, kissing lessons, and a good talking-to about manners.

Should I throw in the towel, or will this series of bad dates be exactly what I need to win Mr. Right?

Taxed by Love by #AJRenee
Release Date: August 29, 2018

Taxed by Love Cover Reveal

Title: Taxed by Love
Series: St. Fleur Novel
Author: AJ Renee
Genre: Contemporary Romance
SubGenre: Brother’s Best Friend/2nd Chance
Release Date: August 29, 2018

 

Love was in the air and Gabrielle wasn’t interested. Even if she was willing to risk her heart again, which she wasn’t, any man would have to get past her overbearing brother first.
 
Andrew was unashamed of his love of women… until he found himself yearning for what his friends had found—love and family. When a gorgeous woman caught his eye at a buddy’s wedding reception, he blindly followed, unable to resist her allure.
 
Their encounter was meant to be no-strings fun, but months later, Gabrielle couldn’t get him out of her mind. Andrew regretted never getting her name or number, leaving them both with only memories and unanswered desires.
 
An unexpected reunion brought the couple to St. Fleur, where trouble had been stirring for their friends and family. Can Andrew persuade Gabrielle to take a risk on a playboy? Or will tragedy jeopardize their chance at love?
She should have known better than to come outside with him. Their attraction had been instantaneous, but the little something more than sexual tension that she couldn’t identify was a problem.Gabrielle avoided relationships. At least she had for the last two and half years. Fuck buddies. That was what she could handle—until they forgot the rules and told her they loved her and wanted to be with her.

Shaking her head free from her thoughts, she knew exactly what she needed to do. “Do you even remember my name?” His eyes darted away, so Gabrielle stepped into him. Startled eyes looked down at her. “It’s okay. Let’s chalk it up to being too loud inside.”

Relief softened his face, and she couldn’t help but admire how handsome he was. Gabrielle cupped his face and brought it to hers. Their lips softly pressed against each other’s, testing the sensation, memorizing the feel.

The door opened again, and she hid her face in his body. When the street quieted, she peeked around him.

“Come on.” She slipped her hand into his larger one and pulled him toward the side of the building, away from intruding eyes and nosey family.

Silence cocooned them, and shadows hid their secrets. His handsome eyes watched her, waiting to see what she would do next.

Gabrielle stepped into him, his heat warming the front of her body. “Kiss me,” she demanded, her eyes drawn to his full lips.

His large hands cupped her face, tipping it up before taking her lips in a slow kiss. A fire ignited in her belly the moment his tongue swept inside her mouth. Gabrielle rolled to her toes and locked her fingers behind his neck.

One of his arms banded around her waist, pulling her tightly against him. Her breasts strained against the dress and his erection pressed against her belly. The kiss was wild, stealing her breath and all thoughts straight from her mind. She tipped her head back, searching to fill her lungs with the oxygen it needed.

He moved his mouth down the column of her neck, stopping at the tops of her breasts. His sigh tickled her sensitive skin, and he peppered more kisses along the side of her neck and shoulder.

She’d never had a one-night stand. Gabrielle may have enjoyed no-strings-attached sex, but she’d been careful in choosing her partners. At this moment though, she quit thinking things through.

Andrew’s free hand cupped her ass, pulling her up and into his hard dick. She needed desperately to kiss him, and since he was occupied with sending bolts of desire down between her legs, she settled on his neck. Breathing him in, she sighed before flicking out her tongue and tasting him.

They made out like overeager teenagers in the dark, away from prying eyes, his fingers kneading into her hips and ass. Hers dug into his scalp as she sucked on a sweet spot on his neck. His touch and kisses added to her tipsy state.

“More…” she whimpered, warmth spreading across her cheeks at her wanton behavior.

Andrew lowered the zipper at her back enough to free her breasts. The cool air sent goose bumps along her fevered flesh.

“Wow.” He sighed and flicked his tongue against one nipple then the next. “Beautiful, absolutely beautiful,” he murmured against her skin before sucking a nipple into his warm mouth.
