New Release~DRIVE by Jacob Chance

Title: DRIVE
Author: Jacob Chance
Genre: Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 1, 2017

 

Blurb
Kissing a complete stranger shouldn’t be a life altering
experience, but with him it was. One look into his mischievous hazel eyes and
our lips were colliding without a second thought.
Now, months later, not only do I know his name, we’ve also
become friends. Good friends. The kind of friends that kiss and cuddle
together, all night long. The kind of friends that fantasize about being
horizontal or vertical…and very much naked.
I’d never been attracted to the football playing jocks, but
Nick’s different. When he’s not being a professional flirt, he’s undeniably
sweet and funny. For every excuse my mind comes up with to keep my distance, my
body finds two reasons to give him a chance.
Can he make the final drive into my heart or will I keep him
in the friend zone?

RHR RATING: 5*/5
‘I want to date you,kiss you,make you laugh and occasionally annoy you..’ (Nick)

Right from the Prologue,I was hooked! Set at the Engagement Party for Reagan and Noah (from Punched),Carter (Reagan’s older sister) who’s not long out of an engagement,has insecurities about herself as a result of what happened with her ex,always the ‘Good Girl’,deciding she wants something more, shares a pretty hot an heavy kiss with a stranger (as the blurb states)…who turns out to be Nick (who featured in both Penalty and Punched)…a football player,who’s passion for MMA is becoming more of a focus for his future.
Fast forward and they come into contact again,Nick is some character,he was hilarious in both the previous books,but in this he is so much more,and I think he might just be my favorite!
He knew from the start who Carter was,even though she is four years older than him (she’s 26) he is smitten and is on a mission to win her heart.
Along the way, we get not only some laugh out loud moments,there is obvious chemistry between them,and the passion builds slowly, but OMG they are HOT together! There is also some angst thrown in,which almost had me want to throw my kindle ( all I’ll say is TABBY-Nick’s twin sister!!!)We have cameo’s from not only Noah/Reagan but Brady and Harlow(Penalty),and it was great to see where they were at in their relationships,along with other characters previously seen in both books,which in turn,could be potential future story-lines.

I don’t want to say too much more as to the whole story,as you should read it for yourselves,it is easily read as a Standalone,but I loved the connections to the other books I’ve mentioned,and personally,I think that Jacob has created not only a great story,which engages the reader from beginning to end,but the character’s are one’s that I’d love to read more about.

Get ready to be #Nickstracted !!

She’s sweet, pure, and untouched, and she’s about to lose her innocence on camera. To me.

Trust me, I’m no porn star, even if I do have the equipment of one. But when the Moretti crime family comes calling to collect on a debt I owe, they want it in trade.

You see, there’s big money in dirty movies, and the more real, the better. Me? I’m already filthy, damaged goods from my time in Afghanistan.

But then I meet Rose, my “co-star”, and my whole world shatters.

She owes the Moretti’s too, but she’s too good for all of this. Too sweet, too beautiful – too innocent for this shit. And I’ll be damned if I let them steal that away from her.

It’s wrong that she’s here, but it’s also wrong that she wants me to “teach her” things. It’s worse that I want to.

But one taste of her lips, and I’m hooked. One touch of her soft skin, and I know Rose is going to be mine. Not the camera’s. Mine.

The virgin with the debt, the ex-marine with the dick, and a porno for the mob.

Welcome to Vegas, baby.

 

*Please note that while a connected story-line, each of the Dirty Bad Things books are completely standalone stories centered around one couple, with no cliffhangers or spoilers.

 

Dirty, filthy, and oh-so-sweet, with an utterly obsessed alpha hero, explosive insta-love, and enough kindle-melting steam to make you sweat. Get ready to get wrong in the right kind of way. HEA with NO CHEATING!

All I wanted was some no-strings attached sex, where small talk wasn’t necessary. There’d be no reminders of laundry that needed to be done and my endless list of responsibilities could be forgotten.

 

 

 
Signing up for the Timber dating app was my answer. No wining or dining; just sex. Those were my rules. I never imagined I’d meet champion lumberjack Magnus Andersen, or that he’d be interested in me.
 
We’re from two different worlds. He lives a life of luxury, while I’m barely making ends meet. He’s prime rib and I’m mac and cheese.
 
But the more I get to know him the less those differences seem to matter. He thinks this could work and I just might be crazy enough to believe him.

An Aussie cowboy, his feisty ex, and an unprecedented storm. Jett Wayne’s Christmas becomes complicated.

Picking up Paris from the airport isn’t on Jett Wayne’s to-do list. Neither is dealing with their history or her cranky mood. Shit happens, like his one mistake that drove them apart.

When they find themselves stranded during an unprecedented storm, they’re faced with explosive emotions, secrets, and uncontrollable desires. Will Jett gamble on a second chance before Paris leaves him for good this time?

Acceptance.

 

Trust.

 

Confidence.

 

Malcolm and I met in an unfortunate way, and he has pushed himself into my
life. When my drunk best friend invites him to her wedding as my date, I
reluctantly give him a chance. I’m giving US a chance and I’m pleasantly
surprised.

 

Now I need to learn how to accept that he takes his clothes off for women.
I need to trust that he’s not wanting to take any of them home. And I need
to build the confidence when the green-eyed monster of jealousy rears its
evil head.

EXCERPT

 

I wake to groaning beside me in bed. It’s not the pleasurable groaning that
I like to hear in the bedroom and coming out of my woman’s mouth. I roll
slightly and she’s clutching her head.

“How did I get here?” she mumbles.

“Deena called me and we picked you up last night.”

“We?” she inquires.

“Jacks and I came to rescue my damsel in distress!” I say with a sleepy
smile.

“I needed rescuing?” she shakes her head.

“You ice luged.”

“I did what?” she turns her head quickly then grabs at it in pain.

“Love, there’s water and some aspirin next to you. I wanted to give it to
you last night, but you passed out before I had a chance.”

She shifts her body and tries to sit up only to screech in pain.

“What the fuck happened to me yesterday? Why is my hip on fire?”

“You ice luged.” I repeat.

“No?” she questions.

“From what I was told, you did.”

“This is so embarrassing.” she puts her hands over her face and groans into
her palms. “Did you see me do any of this?”

“No, when we came to pick you up, you were sitting on the ground on a
cushion.”

“I didn’t throw up? My mouth tastes like a cat used it as a litter box.”
she grabs the glass of water and gulps it down.

“Unless you did in the middle of the night, you barely moved.”

“Well, that’s less embarrassing.”

“If you did throw up, I’d hold your hair back.” I promise her rubbing her
back.

Her phone goes off from her purse on the floor beside her. She reaches over
slowly and her screen lights up.

“Oh my god!” she gasps.

I look over at the screen and there’s full video of Beck ice luging, on
repeat with her ungraceful fall. Her on her arse with her feet up in the
air and her dress pretty much around her waist, showing her lacy grundies
to everyone!

My girl, not only is she fluent in the bedroom Olympics with me, she can
ice luge!

About the Author:

Meet Tarrah. She’s a contemporary romancer who is all about the feels, with
the twists of sexy mixed in between. She’s been writing since before she
can remember. Writing was always a passion, that was kept it under wraps,
stayed on the backburner and never vocalized or followed through with my
desire to be a writer, until she read a horrible book and thought: ‘I could
do better than that!’ She kept her writing romance from her husband for
nearly two years, but finally told him because… royalties and taxes. Now,
he lovingly helps with ‘research’ and uses him for his amazing Photoshop
skills for her covers.

She is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, but living in beautiful
San Diego with her own little family while working during the day as a
social worker working with the homeless. She is a hardcore San Francisco
Giants fan and anything dealing with cupcakes and Zombies.

Her writing style is that she tries to keep on earth. She tries her best to
not be too unrealistic with her characters, what they do and how they live.
She wants her books to be relatable and not to create too many eye rolls,
when a character starts calling his love interest baby after knowing her
for 5 minutes.

She has written and self-published 4 books and one novella. They’re all
dual point of view aside from the novella. She is currently working on
several pieces but focusing on two mainly. Thematically, the novels are
friends to lovers, random hook-ups and office romances mixed with a whole
lot of fun in the middle.
