Release Day for PRETTY RECKLESS

PrettyRecklessHighRes_final cover   Pretty Reckless by Jodi Linton

Welcome to Pistol Rock, Texas where everyone knows secrets last about as long as the sporadic west Texas rain showers.

Laney Briggs has long been considered reckless, but she’s turned herself around—she’s respectably engaged and she’s become a Pistol Rock deputy sheriff. Everything’s fine until a dead body turns up and her ex, Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson, decides to stick his boots into the town’s first murder case.

Laney will be damned if she lets Gunner trample all over her turf and her chance at a quiet, contented life. His seemingly endless ability to undermine her resolve and her libido was only outdone by her constant urge to butt heads with him. But when the bodies start to pile up, Laney has to ask the lethal bad boy for a hand—and a truce in exchange for his help.

Having an ex-boyfriend as an ally might not be the best idea, but Laney has always been pretty reckless…

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved, loved, loved the brassy, sassy Deputy Laney Briggs in Jodi Linton’s debut novel and I can’t wait to read the next book in her series!
When the population of 200 in Pistol Rock keeps dropping along with the citizens, and Laney has to fight off the attentions of two former “friends” as well as keep her fiance unruffled AND solve the murders that keep piling up, you just know that trouble and hijinks will ensue…and maybe a little heartbreak as well.
What could possibly go wrong when the town drunk, the Federal Marshall hottie, the rich entitled rancher’s son and the new vet all vie for Laney’s attention when she just wants to find out who’s leaving bodies all over town? Enough that you’ll laugh…you’ll cry…you’ll be mad as a wet hen…and you’ll root for Laney to win out in the end.
Don’t plan on putting this down once you pick it up. Pretty Reckless is a rollicking good read!

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Read an Excerpt:

Why can’t I find a rock star to hang out with me for a weekend?” Anna moaned. “I can’t even find an ordinary guy to go out on a date with me.”

Lacey shot Anna a rueful glance. It was already June, and Anna was locked into being a bridesmaid at the mother of all society weddings at month’s end. Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal, but Anna had been working the story of an imaginary boyfriend for so long, even Lacey forgot that the sexy lover who was Anna’s constant excuse for missing weekend trips, evening parties, or pretty much anything more than a text exchange with her work and college pals wasn’t a real, live, flesh-and-blood man. But now Anna was going to have to produce said man to keep her tenaciously matchmaking friends from hooking her up with some loser at the upcoming wedding, and that . . . was going to be a trick. Since, you know, the guy didn’t exist.

Dude, you haven’t even really looked for a date,” Dani pointed out now, drawing a scowl from Anna. “I keep offering to set you up at the bar, but you’re always working. Like night and day and night again. Makes it kind of hard to get busy.”

Busy is not what I need,” Anna grumbled. “I just need a date, not anything more.” Then she perked up, flashing Lacey a grin. “Besides, Lacey is going to be ‘busy’ enough for all of us. Because she’s going on tour. With a rock star. Who looks like he’d just as soon rip her clothes off as talk to her.”

Oh, please,” Lacey said, feeling the blood rush into her cheeks again, her heart doing a happy little stutter step. “Dante is not interested in having sex with me.”

For the barest moment, all of the air seemed to get sucked out of the brownstone’s kitchen. Then it whooshed back with three women dissolving into abject gales of laughter.

You’ve got to be kidding—”

Did you see the way he looked—”

Girl, you’re not going to get out of the parking lot, let alone the city—”

Enough!” Lacey held up a hand to stay the onslaught. “This isn’t about me hooking up, okay? This is my job we’re talking about here. If it got out that I slept with a client—that I so much as have a crush on my client—my reputation would be absolutely shredded. For every moment of this fourteen-day tour, I’ve got to play blue-ribbon babysitter to a guy who could make or break my career. I can’t afford to screw up.” Lacey shook her head. “And I can’t afford to screw him.”

Dani leaned back against the kitchen table, lifting up the last steaming pastry from Anna’s early-morning bakeathon. “Then it looks like either way you’re screwed, sweetheart.”

PS:  I have to say, I devoured this book in a single day!  It reminded me of when I used to hang posters of my favorite bands when I was younger. ..except I never got to meet them, much less work with them!

 Can’t wait for the next books in the series!

Cover Reveal: STONE COLD TOUCH by Jennifer L. Armentrout!

StoneColdTouch_FC(1)Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden.  Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…STONE COLD TOUCH Pre-Order Links:

And Available Now:

WHKOne kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she’s anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.
Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she’s crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she’s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue, considering Roth has no soul.
But when Layla discovers she’s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.WHITE HOT KISS Buy Links:
