Safe Mode (Deep Six Security #4) Book Tour


WLK synopsis
When you fall asleep in safe mode, they may bury you...
Dr. Grace Wentworth is at the end of her rope with her wild sister who is pursuing the pipe dream of becoming an actress and pawning her daughter off on Grace to do so. When her sister doesn’t come back from her latest audition, and Grace finds out she’s gone to a BDSM resort in Vegas, she has no choice but to go to Sin City to find her and drag her home.
Dexter Buchanan is just looking for a little well-deserved time off from Deep Six Security to wallow in geek talk with fellow techies at the biggest military electronics show in the world in Vegas. What he gets is far from relaxing, however, when he sees his former college friend-with-benefits at the airport being hustled away in a limo to the Silver Chains Resort. After a little research, he finds out the resort is a kink club and thinks his very vanilla former lover and family friend must’ve lost her mind or she might be in trouble.
Could his decision not mind his own business unravel secrets of his own? Would his interference result in him losing his job at Deep Six, and maybe his life to boot? Or would it be his chance to reconnect with his hardcore military family who thought he was a failure, if he didn't drag them down with his sinking ship?

Queen of the Universe Book Tour

Title: Queen of the Universe
Author: Geralyn Corcillo  
Tour Dates: December 28th – January 4th, 2017

Can a charismatic TV writer convince a reclusive handyman to become her show’s leading man in time to save her career?
Savvy Hollywood writer Lola Scott is about to get fired from the TV show she created because she still hasn’t cast the role of the dark, brooding bounty hunter. But then HE walks in … Arlen Black. And he’s perfect for the part. But he’s not an actor there to audition. Nope. He’s the handyman Lola hired to renovate her historic Hollywood house. No problem—Lola gleefully offers him the dream job of a lifetime. But the stoic recluse-in-a-tool-belt wants nothing to do with Lola and her show. What?! Really?
So Lola goes after him with everything she’s got. But as she draws Arlen into her chaotic world of TV production, Hollywood gossip sinks its claws into him. And when one paparazzi photo threatens to destroy everything he holds dear, Lola’s got to move heaven and Earth not to save the show … but to save Arlen.
This novel reads as a stand-alone story within the In Love in the Limelight universe: Los Angeles, where the stars and paths of different characters might cross, and where the paparazzi is always ready to sink in its glittery talons.

Buy the Book

The handyman Lola's just hired to renovate her house shows up for their first meeting, but she thinks he's an actor there to audition for her TV show … audition for the role of the sexy, brooding bounty hunter.

“Lola Scott? You're the woman in charge?” He's looking all askance at my faded tee and worn jeans.
I let my smile unfurl. Why not? This guy is a kick. “I'm the showrunner. Yes.”
“Yes,” I say easily, deciding I can work with his level of inexperience. “I'm the writer who created the show, and I'm pretty much in charge of everything. From casting, to shooting, to editing. I run the show. Showrunner.”
He's nodding but looking at me as if he's thinking about what he's going to make for dinner tonight. Seriously? He's losing interest in the details of the show? He really IS already in character for my aloof bounty hunter. Either that or ...
I tilt my head and scrunch my eyes à la Alicia Silverstone. “Is this your first time working in TV?” I place a reassuring hand on his arm.
He jumps back, making me feel like I just burned him with a curling iron. He puts his hands in his back pockets and looks at me with such blatant … examination, like he recognizes me from a WANTED poster in the post office. “That's a weird way of putting it,” he says. “But yes, this is the first time I've been to a studio.”
“Mmmm,” I muse. Fresh blood. Makes it easier.
“Look,” he says, taking his hands out of his pockets and looking around as if to find the nearest exit. “You seem really busy. Can we just do this?”
“Yes,” I practically chirp, standing to attention. “We can fill in the details later, but so far, you've really nailed it.”
“Uh … nailed what, exactly?”
 “The image is perfect,” I practically coo. “Very Aragorn meets Wolverine.” I look him up and down, then slowly start to circle him. “I like the beard,” I tell him. “More than five-o'clock shadow, but clipped close enough to see the planes of your face and the cut of your jaw. Good choice.”
He backs away from me, turning to stay face to face with me. “Lady ...”
“You've got that roguish, brooding thing going,” I murmur, getting lost in the intense, bordering-on-angry, look on his face. “Those dark eyes are killer.”
His lips part but he doesn't say anything. Score. The guy can really pull off silence.
“Hmmm,” I say, considering.
“What now? Jesus, what the hell is going on?”
I look up into his face. He seems like he seriously just fell off the truck, making leverage points useless with him. This blade runner with the soul of Pollyanna just dropped into my lap and I have to handle him right.
With sincerity.
“It's nothing we can't work around,” I say, brushing it off with a laugh. “It's just that you're a little older than I had in mind.”
“Old?” he squawks. “I'm only thirty-two!”
“Thirty-two can totally work,” I assure him. “We'll make it work.”
He steps back with the barest hint of a nod.
“And you're okay with partial nudity?” I ask.
“Relax,” I say, trying not to laugh. “I just mean taking your shirt off. Maybe once in a while. But nothing gratuitous. Only when necessary.”
“Look, I don't care how hot it is, I don't strip at work.”
“When you see how much money is in it for you, I think you'll change your mind. And there's no sex. Not at first, anyway.”
“That's it.” He spins on his heel and heads to the stairwell.
“Wait!” I call, rushing to get ahead of him, blocking the door to the exit. “It's okay if you're afraid you won't look perfect. Colin Firth totally panicked like that on the set of Circle of Friends. We'll get you on a daily fitness regimen so that when the time comes, you'll have nothing to be shy about.”
“Listen,” he begins, his voice galvanized with more authority than I'm used to from auditioning actors. “You need to get out of my way and let me leave. You've clearly got some guy-in-a-tool-belt fantasy, and I'm telling you up front, I'm not interested.”
My head snaps back the tiniest fraction before I stop it. “Tool belt? You mean, like, to carry your gun?”

The Do-Over Cover Reveal

Title: The Do-Over 
Author: Julie A. Richman  
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Publication Date: January 26th, 2017  
  Photographer: Wander Aguiar  
Cover Model: Forrest Harrison  
Cover Designer: Jena Brignola



~ Sometimes, one degree is all that separates you from the one you were meant to be with ~
Wes Bergman was sex on a stick.
We’d been circling one another our entire lives, mingling at the same clubs... attending the same events…sharing mutual acquaintances…yet we’d never actually met.
Until . . . we both boarded a Windjammer Cruise in the Caribbean. And it was like meeting my long, lost best friend for the first time. I hadn’t ever connected with a guy that way before. But Wes had a girlfriend. So, when the week was over, he walked off the ship, unknowingly taking a piece of my heart with him.
Now, over a decade later, newly divorced, I’m the proverbial fish out of water. Dating has totally changed. Apps. Swipe left. Swipe right. Catfishing. Men my age want two things: twenty-five-year-olds—like my ex’s new child bride of a wife—or just a quick hook-up.
After a string of bad dates, I finally did something I never thought I’d do. I had a hot one-night stand with a really handsome guy I met online who didn’t even know my real name.
Turned out Mr. Fling is a big shot for my company’s newest client. And just my luck, that client’s CEO is none other than . . . Wes Bergman. Now I’m separated by one degree again from the man who stole my heart. And Mr. Fling could destroy my chance of what I want most –
A Do-Over with Wes.

 Release Date: December 27, 2016

When veteran yoga instructor Mila Mercado was asked to attend a new class and report back to the studio, she had no idea that the over-confident, ruggedly sexy newbie Atlas Powers was going to teach more than just a very controversial and erotic form of yoga.

My Review

This is the third book in this series however they can be read as standalone books.  This is the first book I have read by Audrey and loved it.  This book is about two yoga instructors that have dream jobs they are trying to launch.  Mila and Atlas both didn’t have the best of childhoods and it has affected how they handle relationships or how they don’t handle them.  Atlas and Mila have a love hate sort of relationship.  They snap and bite at each other.  Atlas knew before he formally met Mila that he was attracted to her.  He knew that she would take some convincing to agree to be with him.  Mila was instantly attracted to Atlas when she met him however if she isn’t working at the Lotus House than she is working on her painting.  She doesn’t have time for a man especially Atlas.  She has a feeling that being with him would be more than scratching an itch.  This book had me hooked right from the beginning.  Mila and Atlas are great characters.  They go through such a change in the book.  They open themselves up to what might be despite what their past experiences.  Atlas is a bit more willing to express his feelings then Mila.  I think it is fear that keeps Mila from expressing how she feels.  I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed this book.  I haven’t read the other books in this series but I have put them on my TBR list.  I look forward to read more books by Audrey in the future.
