 Excerpt #1 

 “Seriously Nikko.” She rolled her eyes at him, just shook her head, and began to fiddle with the wrapping on her straw.  She popped it into the top of the Styrofoam container, and then took a sip of her strawberry milkshake, a long one.

 He watched her curiously.  He knew he had been flirting, but only to make her jealous, and realize what she missed out on last summer by running from him.  He began to peel the paper off of his own straw when she finally came up for air. He wished those lips were sucking something else.  His cock was enjoying the thought immensely.  He was grateful the table was hiding his powerful erection.

 As Ronnie took another pull on the straw she saw Nikko squirm on the seat uncomfortably as he tried to get his straw unwrapped.  “Oh yes!” she whispered huskily and licked her lips.  She put the straw back in her mouth to suck a little more of the frothy, creamy concoction into her mouth. Two, could play his game, she thought, as his jaw hit the dirt.  She could make more out of her enjoyment of the milkshake than she really felt and give him a little dose of his own medicine.  She released the straw and then darted out her tongue to lick the tiny bubble of ice cream that appeared on top. Nikko jammed his straw into his own mouth and looked at her fiercely.  Smiling and then ignoring him, she popped the straw back into her mouth sucking greedily.

 Nikko’s mouth dropped at the sight of Ronne’s lips on the straw, sucking.  And her words practically had him shoot a load like he was a teenaged boy again.  His blood was pumping in his veins. The wrong veins, or maybe the right ones. He felt his cock in his pants stir against the constraints.  The second, no maybe third time that day, she’d made him harder than the Rock of Gibraltar.  He shifted on the wooden seat uncomfortably. His balls would be blue in no time if she continued her little sensuous torment much longer.  He knew what she was doing, but that didn’t, couldn’t stop his reaction to it.

 He finally took another sip of his own drink needing the coolness of it to tame the flames she was fanning.  It was good.  “Oh yes,” he teased her back saying it breathily.  “So good!” he purred and went in for another sip.

 They exchanged glances over their straws and then both of them couldn’t help themselves, they burst out laughing simultaneously.

 They laughed, and for Ronnie it felt good.  It was the first time she had laughed in days, and had not thought about all the things she had to face.  For Nikko, it was startling.  He realized he loved her laugh, and would like to hear her do that more often.  Like last summer, he realized there was something about this girl who made him want more than just a roll in the hay.  But, he couldn’t think of that now.

  

 Meet the Marino Brothers

 

  

 Excerpt #2

 Ronnie knew she was drunk because this was just feeling so good. She needed to stop him. But somehow she couldn’t. He smelled so damn good. The cologne, the sea breeze, the wind, and his tongue trailing down her neck had her senses spiraling. That and the three glasses of champagne she had consumed. His lips and teeth nuzzled her neck, little nips that felt like tiny explosions.  His hand slid up her rib cage. She felt the timeless exploration under her breast as he tested its weight. He gently squeezed, and then flicked her nipple beneath the thin material of the bridesmaid gown she wore. He pulled the cup down and a cool blast of night air hit her before his mouth descended on the tiny bud. His mouth was hot. Oh yes! His tongue divine as it titillated her even further. She was the opposite of senseless. She was on fire.

 Nikko couldn’t believe his luck. The blond beauty had given him the cold shoulder whenever their paths crossed. But, the little ice princess had warmed up to him. All it had taken was a few drinks, a few dances, and a few suggestions whispered in her ear. He murmured his appreciation around the mouthful of the most amazing breasts he had ever seen in his twenty six years. This little spitfire with the snapping brown eyes had continued to ignore him throughout the ceremony. But at the reception, she loosened up.  Let her hair down so to speak. Once he got her on the dance floor, and showed her a few moves, she came undone and began to relax.  He liked her like this. Very much.

 “Oh God!” she whimpered as he circled her nipple with his tongue and then gently pulled on it with his teeth. She was tugging on his dark hair, pulling him closer, showing him her true nature. She wanted this, and he was more than happy to comply. 

 They met two weeks ago at the rehearsal dinner for his cousin’s wedding. From that moment, he knew he wanted her, underneath him, on top, he didn’t care. She was every man’s wet dream even though it seemed like she didn’t know it.  And right now, she was making one of his fantasies come true, up against a palm tree on the beach in a relatively secluded alcove.  She was pushing against him, craving the contact.  There was no denying he relished it.  And he thanked his lucky stars, because he wanted her, badly. His cock had been at attention all through their dances. Now, it was straining against his black dress pants needing its own gratification.

 But, he meant to please her first. She was leaning against the coarse bark of a skinny palm, on the beach where hours earlier his cousin, Victor, wed his lovely bride, Monica. His free hand snaked up her thigh. It was shapely. The girl’s legs were defined, hard under the smooth surface. He could feel her muscles tremble under her silky skin as he slid his hand up the inside of her leg. He cupped her, and again she pushed into his touch. Not one to deny anyone their pleasure, least of all himself, he felt Ronnie part her legs and slid a finger inside. She was already aroused, and wet. He began to flick her clit as she squirmed in time to his ministrations.

 “Oh God, Nikko . . .,” she murmured, “that feels so . . .”

WOW!  That doesn’t even describe what I felt about this novel!  The author doesn’t go into boring details but immediately captures the readers from the beginning of the story and starts your heart pumping!  Tease! That’s the way that I can tell it should be good. As you take a small leap into the future the independent do it all by yourself heroine Ronnie finds herself in a bit of a mess and guess what her blast from the past comes to the rescue!  Sigh… I want a Nikko to come to my rescue,  yes his move at the beginning was a jerk type and I did want to slap him but he does kind of redeem himself. He is purely written as melt your kindle heartthrob! Just Listen to the words that fall out of his mouth! The author has a way with playing words that had me laughing and other times can make you feel tingly.
Question is will Nikko be able to help Ronnie and keep his heart in check or will she be just as stubborn and do it on her own? Trust issues, framed, suspense, romance, and hot tension is all included in this novel! The plot was original and i loved every moment of it. The characters were well defined and each had their own uniqueness to bring more life to the story.  Find out trust me you will be happy you picked it up.
This is the first that I have read by this author and it will surely not be my last,  now bring me the rest of the brothers!  :) If Nikko was this fun and just by the glimpses we see of his older brothers they will be a force to be reckoned with!

This is one of those novels that is not standalone and you have to read the other two in order to mostly understand where we are in this story. Even though there were a couple of points where I think could have had a little more details or backstory for the readers to understand; however,  overall the story was one that was easily followed.  You had your suspense, mystery,  and romance!  The author had a way of keeping your interest throughout the whole novel. While I did like both characters I think I loved Varian more! Varian has this darkness about him, he seeks revenge but also at the same time he wants to keep Merry safe. Especially since what happened with his first wife! Merry is still independent; however, as the story progress you can see her start to shine. Of course part of this i blame her family because they aren’t very helpful in the matter at hand between Merry and Varian. Throughout everything that happens between these two will they finally be able to overcome all the struggles or will it all be for naught? The characters are well formed, and the plot will have you wondering what will happen to these two. While I did enjoy the story I do hope there will be more to follow from some of the other characters! If your looking for a historical romance with a fresh look then this is one for you to pick up!

About S.M. Stryker

S.M. Stryker grew up on a small farm in Oregon with her two brothers.

 

She married her husband 27 years ago. It was important to her to be able to stay at home to raise their four daughters.

 

She wasn’t an avid reader, although she always thought her life would make a good book. A few years ago she picked up FSOG and The Crossfire Series and was drawn to the characters; the storylines moved her more than anything. Her life changed at that point, she could relate to the characters and what they had gone through. She devoured books after that, sometimes reading 8-10 books a week, and finding new authors she enjoyed reading. She couldn’t be without a book, her IPad or IPhone anything that she could download her kindle app onto.

 

Knowing she had always wanted to write but kept putting it off, she emailed a few of her favourite authors that gave her some very good advice. So she finally went for it.

Loving Ellie

by Lindsey Brookes

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 10, 2014

Ellie Sanders is pregnant and alone. Carrying a child she’d conceived the one and only time she’d lain with her closest friend, Jarrett Tanner. A man she’d agreed to marry for the sake of their child. A man she’d loved, but not as he’d deserved. And now he was gone.

Lucas Tanner returns home to settle his younger brother Jarrett’s estate only to discover his brother left behind a very pregnant fiancée. Having lost his own wife and their baby she’d been carrying years before, he’s bound and determined to stick around and make sure Ellie’s child makes it safely into the world. Even if it means facing the ghosts of his past.

Struggling financially and emotionally, Ellie is torn between keeping her baby and giving it up for adoption. She wants to give her child the chance she never had – to be raised by two loving parents. If only she could make Lucas understand. And, if only she wasn’t falling for a man with no heart left to give.

Lucas finds himself wanting more. Wanting Ellie. But what if he gives in to his deepening feelings and loses her, too?

One fears abandonment. The other fears loss. Can Ellie and Lucas put their painful pasts behind them and finally find true happiness? Or are the emotional walls they’ve built up around their hearts too strong to tear down?

Ellie reminded him of a winter woodland nymph with those big green eyes and hair dusted a shimmery white.

“I see the snow hasn’t stopped.”  He reached out to brush several glistening flakes from her hair.

“Not completely,” she said softly.

A horse whinnied somewhere in the barn.

The intimacy of what he was doing hit him and he jerked his hand away.

Ellie took a step back.  “What are you doing out here?”

“Would you believe I have a thing for sleeping on straw-covered floors?”

“As opposed to a warm bed?”

Reaching out, he took the broom from her hands.  “I’ll see to the floors.”

“Like you saw to more firewood?”

His dark brow quirked.  “It’s on the porch.  I couldn’t get back into the house last night.  The door was locked.”

A frown pulled at her lips.  “It wasn’t locked.  The latch sticks sometimes.  You have to use your shoe to whack it loose.”

“I’m moving that to the top of my things-to-do list.”

“Why didn’t you knock?  I could’ve let you in through the back door?”

“By the time I’d looked in on the animals and gathered up the firewood, your bedroom light was out.  As tired as you were earlier, I wasn’t about to wake you up when I had a perfectly good barn to sleep in.”

“You could have frozen to death out here.”

He stood looking down at her, suddenly aware of how petite she really was.  She couldn’t stand much more than five foot one or two in her stocking feet.  He supposed her stubbornness and determination made up for her size, but she was still a woman alone.  One who was biting off more than she could chew.

The concern in her eyes had him offering a reassuring smile.  “I’d like to think I’m a little tougher than that.”

“You’re also human,” she reminded him with a frown.  “People die.”  Turning, she walked out of the small storage room.

That was one thing he didn’t need reminded of.  

Are you in the mood for a novel that will have you feeling warm and fuzzy then this is one for you to pick up but watch out and have a box of tissues next to you! Two broken people who find each other thru a mutual love for one person!  How can this story not touch your heart. I fell in love with Lucas characters because he had been through so much; yet, was willing to take on his deceased brother family onto his shoulder.  He is caring,  loving,  to me an all around good guy. Ellie on the other hand has a streak about her that makes her character a little more harder to love but she grew on me. You have to read the story to understand what she went through and why she is the way she is. She only wants what is best for her unborn child especially after Jarrett died. I really can’t blame her! However,  will his brother change her mind? Can these two broken hearts be mended by each other, or will her stubborn side follow through.  This story had me hooked from the beginning and I am so happy that I got a chance to read this novel. The plot, even though it was an emotional roller coaster, was well written and captured my attention from beginning to the end. This is one author I am sure to continue reading especially if her other novels are like this. Grab Loving Ellie and sit back for an amazing story that will be close to your heart!
