My Review:

I very much enjoyed this book.  It was an endearing story of a dancer who had a very hard life and the struggle she went trough to overcome her past. The love she finds along the way and the battle between the past and the present is an emotional ride but I couldn't put it down.

It has everything I want in a book it entertained me, I was able to get lost in the story and just enjoy it.  Great Job Jessica Gibson on an outstanding story.

Just Shoot Me

Just Shoot Me (Cowboy Way, #1) a new series by Becky McGraw, author of the Texas Trouble Series


Tina Montgomery needs to find her Texas Tomcat. Her promotion and livelihood depend on it. That promotion could mean a new life for her, her sister and her niece. It's a big risk however, because if she fails in her bid to head up a new menswear line at her company, she could lose everything. That's why finding the perfect model to represent the line has become her sole focus. At the point of thinking she would ...never find that man, one with both experience and attitude that shows in his face and eyes, she meets Dean Dixon. His gorgeous eyes tell a story she definitely wants to hear and the man has more attitude than any she’s ever met. Physically he's perfect for the job. But that attitude she thought she wanted in her cowboy quickly becomes her biggest downfall when she tries to convince the sexy, but hard-hearted rancher to help her.

Dean Dixon is done with women. His cheating ex-wife has shown him just how untrustworthy women are. He has a ranch to run, and a son who might not be his to raise alone. That's more than enough for any man to handle without dealing with his sister-in-law’s friend who is determined to convince him to model for her company. He has seen what that industry has done to his brother. Dean is a rancher, not a model, and he isn't about to abandon his family or fall into the same trap his brother had. He stands his ground, until his sister-in-law tells him why Tina needs the promotion she’s wanting so badly, and asks for his help. Hope had bailed him and his family out when they needed her the year prior. How could he refuse to help her now?


Dean turned and laid down on the floor then reached back with his foot to find the first rung. He scrambled down the tree to the ground, and took a moment to adjust his jeans, before he started across the pine needle covered ground. Last night in the heat of the moment, he hadn’t felt the prickly pine needles sticking into the soles of his feet. He hadn’t felt much of anything, except the overwhelming urge to get Tina Montgomery up in that deer stand and fuck her brains out. This morning, he felt every step he took, just like he felt the bitterness of the regret inside his chest.

If they’d met when he was younger, before he became so jaded. Before Cindy. Maybe Dean’s life would be different. Tina Montgomery coming along now wasn’t the same. He wasn’t the same. Last night up in that deer stand he’d forgotten his problems for a few hours. She’d helped him forget. But when his feet hit the ground again this morning, they were all still there. Last night hadn’t solved a damn thing. Dean knew it had just been a temporary reprieve in his shitty life. A welcome one, but just a reprieve. Dean still didn’t have a damned clue how he was going to fix things. Or if he could.

Taking a deep breath, he huffed it out then picked his way through the trees toward the place they’d made love the first time last night. Dean looked around under the tree and found his hat behind some scrub, but didn’t see her skirt, his boots, or anything else. He mumbled under his breath and turned. A pair of ripped red panties occluded his view. They smelled just like Tina Montgomery, and he couldn’t help but take a deep breath.

"Looking for these?" Cord asked smugly.

Dean ripped them from his fingers, and shoved them into the pocket of his jeans. "Where’s her damned skirt?" he grumbled.

Cord laughed and pulled it from behind his back to hand it to him.

"My boots?" Dean growled.

"Hope has those in the truck." Cord didn’t move to go get them though. His brother stood there with a wide grin on his face. "Figured you took her to the deer stand. I made enough damned noise to wake the dead. You should be saying thank you instead of being an ass. Seems like you should be in a better mood too considering."

"Would you just go get my damned boots?"

"Hope has Tina’s boots too," Cord said in a sing song voice, then his eyes laughed as he added, "I’ll go get them on one condition."

"What’s that?" Dean asked clenching his fists, wanting nothing more at that moment than to plant one in his brother’s face.
"You let her climb down that ladder to get her panties and skirt."

"Fuck you," Dean growled and shoved him hard. Cord laughed as he stumbled back and put his hand on his chest.
"You know I’m just kidding." Cord’s face turned serious. "I’m happy for you brother."

"Nothing to be happy about. It’s done," Dean said through his gritted teeth. "Now, go get my damned boots before I tell your wife you’re ogling Tina, and she kicks your ass!"
His brother’s laughter echoed through the woods, as he walked toward the clearing. A few minutes later, he returned with Dean’s shirt, and their boots.
Cord dug into the pocket of his jeans and handed Dean a set of keys. "Ya’ll take your time," he said with a wink. "Lucky says to take his truck when you’re ready to come back. He’s riding with us."

A lightning bolt of desire shot through him, but Dean caught it and crushed it. He had things to do. "We’ll be there in a few minutes," he said as he turned to walk back to the tree stand.

Texas Trouble Series by Becky McGraw:

Vitamin D Book Tour

She’s innocent.  He’s not.
After Olivia Brown’s parents unexpectedly die, she’s forced to leave a promising career at the United Nations and return home to take care of her younger brother and family home, the historic Rutherford Mansion Bed & Breakfast.
The last thing she expects is to encounter the sexy and seductive Jed Carson, a notorious playboy with a dark past who is bored with his life and in search of a fresh start and new pleasures.  He secretly wants to buy the Mansion, and once he meets Olivia, he wants her.
What begins as a lesson in sex and seduction turns into more after a seemingly harmless therapy turns Jed’s life upside down, and a custody battle, pregnancy and murder bring the pair closer together and change them forever.

In the sequel “Side Effects”, Jed and Olivia are forced to flee the country and their relationship heats up and takes an unexpected turn.  From Jamaica to Brazil to New York, their journey is packed with surprising twists, dark revelations and more erotic encounters, and Jed’s decadent past tests their love and one secret will remain buried forever.

Told from the perspective of both the seducer and the seduced, “The Vitamin D Treatment Series” will leave you wet with anticipation and asking “who’s seducing who?”
Strong sexual content and language.
“You should know, Olivia, I heard everything,” he murmurs, his voice low and silky.
Olivia glares at him, panic in her eyes.  She places the drink on the coffee table and drops to the sofa, lowering her head and covering her eyes with slender hands.  Can she be any more miserable?  Everything?  Shit!
Jed sets the drink on the side table, rises slowly and moves to the sofa.  He sits close and drapes an arm over the backrest behind her.  He cups her chin and forces her to look at him.  “There’s nothing to be ashamed of, Olivia,” he says softly, cocking his head to the side and smiling a knowing smile.
“I’m not,” she breathes, feeling that delicious pull, her belly muscles tightening.
“Good.  So have you ever had an orgasm?”

Olivia blinks.  Jeez.  She can’t believe he’s asking–mentioning–saying it out loud.  She wants to be offended by the extremely inappropriate question, but she can’t muster the emotion.  Her brain has left the building.

“Well?” he persists.

“No,” she mumbles miserably.

His eyes soften and he frees her chin.  “What about when you’re alone, Olivia?” he asks seductively, nuzzling his nose in her neck.

Jeez.  Can she be more embarrassed?  How can he sit there and calmly talk about orgasms?

Jed rises slowly and moves back to the chair.  He sits, picks up the drink, crosses a leg over a knee and rhythmically runs an index finger back and forth over his lower lip, his eyes locked on her.  Although seemingly cool on the outside, his insides are churning.  Pure lust rages within him–combustible, overwhelming desire.  Fuck.  He has never felt like this before and he knows he’s playing with fire.

Olivia peeks up at him, her green eyes guarded.  She will not admit to him that she has never had an orgasm.  Jeez.  She gulps the rest of the drink and waits for the fire to spread through her.  “I bet you can change that,” she says bravely, smiling a shy crooked smile.

Jed spits a mouthful of cognac back into the glass and his eyes widen. 
“You don’t know what you’re saying, Olivia,” he warns harshly, his eyes black and impassive.
Olivia arches a brow–questioning him–daring him.
“You don’t know me, Olivia,” he smirks, continuing to rub a finger over his lower lip, his brows furrowing.
“You don’t want me?” she squeaks, her heart in her throat.
Olivia’s sweet innocence tugs at his heart and he nervously rakes a hand through his hair.  He wants her bad.
  “I want you, Olivia.  But I can’t promise you anything,” he sighs.
“Can you promise me an orgasm?” she baits, her voice quivering and she can’t believe the words came out of her mouth.
Jed waits for her in their bedroom, running his hands through his hair and pacing anxiously.  He has a lot to do and ticks through the list in his head, but when Olivia enters the room, peeking shyly at him with those beguiling green eyes, he is overcome by a primitive desire–an overpowering need–and he wants to fuck her–hard, his cock hardening with anticipation.  He decides the plan can wait, turns on the TV, sets the volume low and approaches her slowly.
“Olivia,” he murmurs, backing her against the wall and sniffing her hair.  “You’re so beautiful…”
Olivia’s pulse races and she locks eyes with him–dark chocolate magic–and her insides tense.
“I want to fuck you,” he whispers, his lips grazing hers.  “Can you be quiet?  Can you be absolutely silent?”

Her brows crease, doubting that’s possible, and he braces his hands on the wall and pins her to it.

“If you moan and groan and grunt, I won’t fuck you,” he warns silkily.

She wriggles against him and protests, “I don’t grunt.”

He snorts and arches a brow, planting a gentle kiss on her nose.  “Okay, you don’t grunt,” he says softly, smiling his rare, dazzling spine-tingling smile.
Olivia trembles and every sinew below her waist aches with want.  She wraps her arms around his neck and her lips seek his, but he pulls back and his dark eyes scorch into her.
“Can you do it, Olivia?  Can you be quiet?” he breathes huskily.
Olivia nods robotically, mesmerized by the wicked gleam in his eyes, and he cups her face, kisses her soundly and grinds the hard bulge beneath his jeans against her.  She suppresses a moan, but as his velvety tongue explores her mouth and his warm hands slip under the robe and burnish her flesh, caressing her breasts and tormenting her nipples, she doesn’t know if she can keep her promise.

S.M. Knowles was born in Elmira, New York where she was swept away in a whirlwind to the Land of Oz—Independence, Kansas. Her parents were relocating for working opportunities and decided that this would be the perfect place to start new roots. Little did she know that this place would contribute to the inspiration for the first book she wrote in her Rylee Everley Series.
While growing up, S.M. would travel the roads around her house while imagining she was somewhere else. Her imagination would take her everywhere, making the long hot summer days seem shorter throughout her fantasies.
At the age of twelve, she decided to write her first book. Filled mostly with dialog, she filled up one-hundred pages, front and back. After taking the book downstairs to show her mom, and persuading her to buy her more paper, she excitedly ran back to her room. As she barreled through the door, S.M. tripped over items left on her floor, and her papers came raining down in her room. Discouraged, she stood there in tears, picking up her papers and throwing them in the trash. Her work had no organization, no numbers on her pages, just a child fulfilling a joy that she would put down and not pick up again.
When she became older, she joined the military for something different. In that time, she was able to explore many places and even met her husband in Iraq. After coming home, she started her family in Arizona and went back to school, earning a Master’s degree in Adult Education and Training.
