Weight Expectations- ME Carter

Weight Expectations, the first in the romantic comedy Cipher Office series of standalones, from M.E. Carter is available now!


Rian Thompson thought she joined the gym to get healthy. Little did she know she was about to add hundred and ninety pounds of swoonworthy abdominal muscles and arrogance to her life.

Every day in Rians’s life follows a predictable pattern, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s got a nice job, a nice place to live, and a nice family—even if they are a little wedding-zilla-ish at the moment.

She doesn’t need anything spectacular to be happy. She just needs to get healthy—mentally, physically. . . and maybe spiritually if that happens. But she’ll settle for two out of three until her sister finally gets hitched.

Carlos Davies thought his life was perfect. Little did he know it was about to be turned upside down by a woman who is not his type.

In Carlos’s mind, his life is damn near perfect. He’s got a great job, a great place to live, and a great stash of pick up lines that always work. It has occurred to him that maybe no one actually takes him all that seriously. But with these bulging biceps and thick, dark hair, does that even matter since he’s never sleeping alone?

Welcome to Weight Expectations, where great—and unexpected—things happen.

‘Weight Expectations’ is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, can be read as a standalone, and is book#1 in the Cipher Office series, Knitting in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

About M.E. Carter

My name is ME Carter and I have no idea how I ended writing books. I’m more of a story teller (the more exaggerated the better) and I happen to know people who helped me get those stories on paper. I love reading (read almost 200 books last year), hate working out (but I do it anyway because my trainer makes me), love food (but hate what it does to my butt) and love traveling to non-touristy places most people never see. I live in Houston with my four kids, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who was just a twinkle in my eye when I came up with my pen name. Yeah, I’ll probably have to pay for his therapy someday for being left out.

Sticking To The Script- Stella Weaver

Sticking to the Script, an all-new standalone in the romantic comedy Cipher Office series, from Stella Weaver is available now!


Steven Thompson had a bad year. A string of mean, kinky (the alarming kind, not the good kind), and crazy dating debacles combined with a boss who appears to be experiencing male-prenatal-psychosis means Steven’s stress levels are high. They’re so high, he’s decided to quit dating and focus instead solely on his job.

Until he meets Dr. Ken Miles.

Doctor Ken Miles is having a fantastic year. His hard work is paying off in a big way . . . professionally. But his social life? Not so much.

Until he meets Steven Thompson.

Steven isn’t so sure about Dr. Miles, but Ken is one hundred percent certain about Mr. Thompson. And even though both men know full well that the key to getting what you want out of life is hard work, they can’t seem to make them—together—work.

Will they ever get on the same page? Or just keep sticking to the same old script? 

‘Sticking to the Script’ is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, can be read as a standalone, and is book#2 in the Cipher Office series, Knitting in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Holidate by Monica Murphy- Blog Tour

My Take: (ARC REVIEW) This is a super lighthearted sweet story that would fit right in on the Hallmark channel. It reads almost more like YA than contemporary romance, even though the characters are in their 20s due to the lack of heat or action and Candice’s simplistic naivety. She’s never made out in a car, lives with her parents, and doesn’t like swearing. She bounce and claps her hands when excited. Though it doesn’t have a lot of depth or passion, it is a fun easy breezy read that’s perfect for Christmas. 3.5/5 stars

Blurb:

Candice Gaines loves Christmas. Not only does she bask in the twinkling lights, sing Christmas carols and go crazy with the decorations, she’s also in the giving spirit, donating much of her time and wealth to various charities in the local area.

Charlie Sullivan despises Christmas. Though it keeps his family afloat, considering they own Sullivan Family Christmas Tree Farm, the main provider for Christmas trees on the Monterey peninsula. He’d much rather work among the trees versus have to deal with people.

But Charlie’s parents are taking on more philanthropic projects—and as their oldest child, they want him to be their official public representative. He just has to play nice and convince everyone he’s not a total holiday hater.

When Charlie’s mom asks Candice to accompany him to a variety of holiday parties and events, she reluctantly agrees. She thinks Charlie is a big ol’ Grinch, but is determined to change his mindset and help him spread Christmas cheer. Charlie finds Candice too chatty, too sweet, too much. Do people like her really exist?

Why yes, yes they do. The more time they spend together—along with a few kisses under the mistletoe—the more they start to like each other. Hopefully Charlie can convince Candice he doesn’t have a heart that’s two sizes too small before the ball drops on New Year’s Eve.

Excerpt:

I go chasing after Charlie, thankful he hasn’t hopped back on that ATV and torn out of here. He’s headed straight for the giant red building, and I follow behind, having to pick up my step since one of his long strides equals about three of mine. He’s just so stinkin’ tall.

And handsome.

And gruff.

And he smells good. Have I mentioned that? He smells like a pine tree, of course, and his scent is mouth-wateringly delicious.

Ugh. I hate myself sometimes.

He pushes open the door of the building almost violently, sending it swinging wide, and I sneak in behind him, causing him to turn and practically snarl at me when he realizes I’m standing in front of him.

But I forget all about his snarl when I see how enchanting this room is. It’s not an office, but an actual store, filled to the brim with holiday decorations and knickknacks for sale. Candles are burning—I can smell cinnamon and spice wafting in the air. The scent of the real pine trees laden with ornaments standing in the room also lingers, and I breathe deep, closing my eyes for a moment so I can take it all in.

When I open my eyes, it’s to find Charlie standing there, his hands on his hips, his brow lowered. “Are you okay? That head injury still flaring up and giving you trouble?”

I roll my eyes. “No, you idiot. I’m enjoying the festive atmosphere.”

Oh, that was mean. I shouldn’t have said that.

But I don’t think he even noticed.

I slowly turn in a circle, pure delight flowing through my veins. I don’t know what to look at first, it’s all so beautiful. And there are layers upon layers of decorations. On the walls, cluttering shelves and tabletops, overflowing giant baskets. And of course there are the trees. They almost sag with their bounty of sparkling ornaments and twinkling lights. It would probably take me hours to explore it all, and I’m dying to start my exploration right at this very moment. “This store is so adorable!”

“My sister Victoria runs it.” He glances over at the counter where the register sits, but no one’s there. “I don’t know where she’s at, though. Maybe you could talk to her about—whatever it is you want to talk about.”

No way is he pushing this agenda onto his sister. Isabel wants Charlie to do this, and no one else.

“We’ve wasted the past five minutes with you huffing and puffing and refusing to speak to me.” I reach into my large bag and pull the folder out I wanted to show him. “Give me ten minutes. That’s all I need to talk about what we’re going to do over the next few weeks.”

He grimaces. Sighs. Tugs the cap off his head, all that gorgeous hair spilling across his forehead, and my fingers literally itch at the chance to push it out of his eyes.

But I restrain myself.

Barely.

Shaking the Sleigh- Cover Reveal

Check out the hot cover for Delancey Stewart’s Shaking the Sleigh, the first book in the all new Seasons in Singletree series, designed by Jaycee DeLorenzo of Sweet ‘n Spicy Design. This is releasing November 20, 2019, just in time for your Christmas needs.


BLURB
Christmas:  a time of joy, a time of celebration, or – if you’re April Hall – a time to studiously avoid any tinsel-strewn, glitter-soaked, candy-cane striped venues like a devoted hermit who studied under the attentive tutelage of the Grinch himself. 

April Hall is not a fan of the holidays, thanks to her dad choosing that day in seven-year-old April’s life to decide that he didn’t want a family after all. Now the holiday felt like a glaring reminder of the worst day of April’s life. 

But when her uncle—a bigwig television network executive—gives her one last shot to salvage her disastrous career on a show call Holiday Homes, April has no choice but to suck it up and get festive. 

The problem? Beyond the obvious, of course—that the town of Singletree, which is featured on the show, is so into the holidays that they literally change the name of the town to Christmas Tree for the month of December—is that there is one house meant to be the pinnacle of the Christmas episode. And the homeowner isn’t planning to even put up a tree. 

Nope, Callan Whitewood isn’t feeling Christmasy at all. The former pro-soccer player suffered a devastating injury that ended his career with the South Bay Sharks, and pretty much wrecked his vision of what his life was supposed to be. Now he’s a nobody with a limp and no real idea what to do with a future that was supposed to be about the only thing he really loved—soccer. 

Callan moved to Singletree to get away from every reminder of who he had once been—who he was supposed to be. (Who he still wanted very much to be.) He also moved there because the only family he has—his brother and his two nieces—live there. 

But Singletree proves to be less quiet and private than he’d hoped. A bright and shiny television producer pops into his life—and breaks into his house—before he’s even fully moved in. And before he knows what happened, both their lives are turned upside down. 

Can April convince Callan to allow her to film his house for the show that is supposed to save her career? Can Callan accept that his own career is over and move on to something new? Can either of them handle the sheer amount of holiday cheer strewn across every free surface in the town of Singletree? 

SHAKING THE SLEIGH is a standalone holiday romantic comedy with a satisfying happily ever after, plenty of festive chuckles, some sexy times and a few chinchillas. And maybe a cat. And there might be a wombat because wombats really do fit into almost any story. 

This book has no cheating, no cliffhangers, and absolutely no pigs.

The Mogul and the Muscle- Claire Kingsley

The Mogul and the Muscle by the ever fantastic Claire Kingsley is now live! I love this book! I want a Jude Ellis in my life. Not that I need a body guard, I just want a 6’5″ built hunk of a guy to hang around me. If you like boss babes, giant bodyguards on motorcycle, mystery, friendship, or serious heat, this is a great book for you. Claire Kingsley never disappoints!

This is book two of a series with each novel written by a different awesome writer but could be read as a standalone. You should start with the first book by Lucy Score though 🙂


Blurb: 

“I wanted this man’s arms around me, cocooning me in safety. I wanted to feel like I didn’t have to be brave for a few hours. I wanted to let him be my courage. My protection. My shield.”

Cameron Whitbury—billionaire aerospace mogul—can engineer her way out of any problem. Sure, she’s living with the threat of a potential sex scandal thanks to her lying ex. And that attempted mugging in her parking garage might not have been a random attack.

But she’s totally got this. Sacrifice her privacy to an overprotective bodyguard? No thanks. She doesn’t need a six-foot-five, motorcycle-riding, square-jawed, hazel-eyed man-beast shadowing her every move.

Jude Ellis—one-man security operation and professional problem solver—is ready to retire from the cloak and dagger stuff to live a normal life. He doesn’t need another client. Not even one with coppery-red hair and mile-long legs who looks hot AF in a sexy pair of heels.

To appease her worried friends, Cameron hires Jude as her bodyguard. And despite their feisty banter and their rampant—and totally inappropriate—sex fantasies, they’re both determined to keep it professional.

But as the danger to Cameron escalates, the heat simmering between them just might combust.

Author’s note: Big wall-of-man hero with a fierce (and growly) protective streak. Confident and snarky heroine. All the banter. Sex in a closet. And a daring rescue with a big, heart squishing HEA.
