Today’s stop is for Nina Croft’s Falling for the Bad Girl. We will have info about the book and author, and a great excerpt from the book, plus a great giveaway. Make sure to check everything out and enter the giveaway. Happy Reading :)
As a second generation detective, Nathan Carter is a cop, through and through, one who definitely sees things in black and white. But his work ethic—and libido—are thrown off balance when he heads up the case against jewel thief, Regan Malloy. Because with one sizzling look, she’s got him hot and hard. And he’s been that way, ever since.
Growing up, Regan’s favorite hobby was learning to crack safes, and she was very, very good at it. Still, she’d always tried to keep to the straight and narrow, and only strayed when she believed a friend was in desperate straits. Now she’s out of prison and starting over. If only she could forget that she’d spent the last three years fantasizing about the stunningly gorgeous detective who locked her away.
It’s inevitable that they meet up again—in bars, hotels…and hotel beds. Despite their differences, they can’t keep their hands off each other. Still, it’s just desire. If they give it enough time, it’ll burn itself out. Because a good boy and a bad girl can’t possibly make it work. Can they?
She put her glass down and caught him staring. “What?” “I was just thinking what a beautiful woman you are.” “You think I’m beautiful?” “When you walked into the bar tonight, I thought…what’s the chance of a beautiful woman like that spending time with a man like me?” Something flashed in her eyes. Anger maybe, but it was gone before he could identify it. “Maybe I have zero taste.” “Are you going to spoil this?” She sucked in her lower lip and then flicked it with her tongue, leaving it glistening. Blood sank to his groin. “This?” she asked. “Is there a ‘this’ to spoil?” He shrugged. “You’re back from a long vacation, feeling lonely. I’ve had a hard day at the office.” “Tomorrow we both get back to real life.” “But tonight, we’re here together… So what do you want to do, Regan?” “You have any ideas?” “You know, I’m not sure. This isn’t my usual habitat.” “And I’m guessing I’m not your usual woman.” “Hell, honey, it’s been so long, I’ve no clue what my usual woman is.” Her eyes widened at that. Jesus, he had hundreds of ideas, all of which ended with his dick buried deep inside her. He was beginning to think she was on the same wavelength. And while he didn’t understand why, everything inside him was screaming to take this to its obvious conclusion. Don’t ask questions. He leaned in toward her and spoke quietly. “My dick’s been rock hard since you sat your pretty self at my table.” She didn’t say anything, but the next moment her bare foot slid up his leg under the table. He held himself still as her toes came to rest on his groin. Heat flooded him as she massaged his cock. Her eyelids drooped, and her nostrils flared. “You weren’t lying,” she murmured. “Hmm, so what should we do with this?” Again, he had a whole load of ideas. Well, maybe only one. But he still couldn’t get a feel on her emotions. Why was she doing this? “Are you going to lead me on and then dump my ass? Payback?” There was that flicker of emotion again, and her eyes narrowed. “Payback for what, Nate? You think you’ve done something wrong?” Logically, no. He’d done his job. No more. “Maybe it’s you who’s going to spoil this,” she continued. “Because that would be so easy.” “Perhaps I just need a little gesture of good faith.” She pursed her lips, and a smile tugged at the corner of her mouth. She removed her foot from his groin, reached beneath the table, wriggled a couple of times. When her hand reappeared, she was dangling a scrap of black lace from her fingertips. He swallowed. “Jesus, you’re a bad girl.”
Nina Croft grew up in the north of England. After training as an accountant, she spent four years working as a volunteer in Zambia, which left her with a love of the sun and a dislike of nine-to-five work. She then spent a number of years mixing travel (whenever possible) with work (whenever necessary) but has now settled down to a life of writing and picking almonds on a remote farm in the mountains of southern Spain.
Nina writes all types of romance, often mixed with elements of the paranormal and science fiction.

We've recently published how to blog about books in several different ways showing that a book review isn't the only possible post format for your book blog. But do you know other options available on your BookLikes blog?
Let's start with Drafts.
Sometimes it's reasonable to write, take a deep breath and let the text rest. When you come back to your review or article after several hours, you may be stunned how accurate or inaccurate you were in your first version. Regardless of how well you did, the most important thing is to find your texts saved as Drafts as quickly as you can -- the literary inspiration can be ephemeral and may fade away really fast.
To view your Drafts, click Blog on the upper menu and go to the right column. Click Drafts and voila. All you texts saved as drafts are here.
To edit the text, click Edit in the upper right corner of the post, make all the necessary changes, adjust the post date and save to publish online.
If you're still not sure whether the text is done, you can save it as draft again and again. Now you know that your texts are safe and sound and easy accessible anytime.
Mass Post Editor
The mass editor is also visible on your admin blog page:
If you have number of posts saved as drafts, use the mass editor -- it will save your time by showing you texts with the exact post status you're looking for: published, draft or scheduled to publish.
You can also use the mass editor as your table of contents and find past writings by searching via the publication date, post types or tags.
Preview and Save options
Remember that the post's look is different on Dashboard view and on your public BookLikes page (e.g. username.booklikes.com). To make sure that your text and photos look awesome in both views, use the Preview option and have a glance how it looks on your public blog page.
If you're using the Draft option regularly, use the "back to edit after saving changes" option to make sure that none of your sentence slips away because of the browser time out. When editing your draft, tick the box and click Save as draft every several minutes. You'll stay in the edit mode and your text will be safe.
Please mind that if you press Post, the text will go online and you'll be still in the edit mode. That's why we recommend using the "back to edit after saving changes" option for your draft works.
Today’s stop is for Kimberley Patterson’s Burned. We will have info about the book and author, plus a great giveaway. Make sure to check everything out and enter the giveaway. Happy Reading :)
“Pay attention to the signs that are all around you,” Sarah's mother used to say. Sarah never listened until her world turned upside down in the wake of her mother’s death. When sifting through the fiery ashes, signs begin to appear, giving her the feeling that the accident was less of an accident and more of foul play. While Sarah struggles to understand the images haunting her dreams, she finds herself losing a grip on reality. Based on true events, Sarah unravels the mystery surrounding her mother's death, and, in doing so, uncovers an internal darkness capable of murder.
This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.
This afternoon, her planet was invaded.
The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.
But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again.
Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.
This book was truly unique not only the story but also the format of the book.
To be honest, going into this book I was a little worried if it would be hard to follow the book because of the format the book was written in. The entire book is in emails, IMs, reports and other crazy pages and pictures of the ship.
Here are some sample pages for those who have not seen the book in print.
For that reason I was worried it would be a little hard to follow but it was super easy to follow and it made for a fantastic reading experience.
I loved everything about this book the story that kept you guessing and biting your nails. The endless twist and turns of the story. The characters that were super realistic,( well the human ones ;) )
There is really not much to say, because I really don’t want to spoil it for anyone but it really is a great book that will take you on a thrilling and often emotional journey like no other book has done.
I enjoyed Kady and she truly is a hero in my book, she is real and kept going to the last second where others would have given up a long time ago. Loved Ezra. Just something about him that made me smile and of course Kady.
Aiden is bat a&& crazy but I enjoyed it every minute of it.
I enjoyed all the events happening in the book it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book. Every time you catch on something new and shocking happens.
If you have not read this book and looking for a new interesting dystopian- future book, I highly recommended this series. I also hears great things about the audio-book if you listen to them.
Overall, great thrilling, shocking and heartbreaking read with a unique format and I rate it a full 5★
Some of my favorite quotes:
“Perhaps bravery is simply the face humanity wraps around its collective madness.”
“You deserve every star in the galaxy laid out at your feet and a thousand diamonds in your hair. You deserve someone who'll run with you as far and as fast as you want to. Holding your hand, not holding you back.”
“He presses the triggers. And like roses in his hands, death blooms.”
“Are you afraid?"
"Energy never stops, remember. It just changes forms."
"I am still afraid.”
"Oh, poor baby. Did I hurt the mass-murdering psychopathic artificial intelligence's feelings?”

In the old days, people whispered about the wolf, said he came only at night, and only by the light of the full moon. They locked their doors and huddled close to their fires, safe in the knowledge they could prepare for his coming. The truth is, no one is safe, because the wolf walks in the skin of the man. Always.

Forced to grow up fast after what her mama delicately referred to as, ‘the incident,’ she learns the hard way not all strangers are kind, real monsters hide in plain sight, and family can be found in the most unexpected places. Harlow Hayes is about to meet the Wolf.
