If you loved Caught Up In Us by Lauren Blakely your gonna love what I have to show you ...

Pretending He's Mine

York Times and USA Today bestselling Caught Up In Us series.

Pretending He's Mine
By Lauren Blakely

Once upon a time in New York City, there was a down-on-his-luck actor named Reeve, who was talented and gorgeous in that dreamy, broody sort of way that makes all the women swoon. But show biz is a rough biz – he lost out on a part in a big film, and now his day job hours have been cut too. What’s a handsome young thing in need of a role to do?

Enter Sutton Brenner. She’s sexy and shrewd and the most top-notch casting director there is. She’s this close to landing a coveted gig casting a film based on a best-selling mega-romance novel, but there’s a catch. After one too many transgressions with lovely single ladies, the film’s philandering producer has been put on a short leash by his wife, who’s forbidden him from working with anyone unattached.

So the happily single Sutton strikes a pact with Reeve – play the role of her fiancee until she closes the deal, and he’s guaranteed to get an audition for the starring role in the film.

But as the two play pretend, the lines between make-believe and matters of the heart start to blur. Especially after that hot night in the balcony of the Broadway theater. And that scorching afternoon in the stacks of the New York Public Library. Who’s playing who? Or is someone else really the director in the secret affair of their lives?


“You were all weird and awkward when I kissed you at your office,” he added.
“I’m sorry. I was just surprised.”

“I know. But we need to make sure you don’t jump the next time I kiss you.”

“We do?”

“Well that would give it away, wouldn’t it? You need to get used to being kissed by me.”

“Okay,” she said with a business-like nod.

“That means we need to practice.”

“Practice kiss,” she said slowly, then nodded quickly. “Right. Of course. Like a stage kiss. Like actors. So of course we’ll stage kiss.”

She sounded chipper and cheery, as if she were trying to convince herself. She seemed to need the convincing, so he went along with it.

“Think of this as a dress rehearsal. We’re prepping for the big kiss scene that makes the audience swoon and totally believe we’re in love.
Got it?”
She nodded.
“Right here in the dressing room?”
“What better place to rehearse a kiss than a dressing room?”
“Totally. Absolutely. Definitely.”

Reeve wondered how many more adverbs she’d need to utter before he kissed her. Perhaps they were a sort of liquid courage. Either way, he knew he had to lead. He suspected he had more experience with stage kisses than she’d had.

So he looked at her, as if she were the woman he’d been dying to kiss for years. She was his leading lady, she was the only woman he wanted. She returned her gaze, and then it was as if a flame burst. Reeve pictured her ravenous and greedy, wanting to be consumed with kisses, and hands, and so much more. Her lips were parted slightly, and her breathing had become…lustful. Maybe she was acting too. In that moment, he didn’t care. He wanted to taste her lips, he wanted to feel more of her beautiful body. There was something about her, maybe it was the age difference, maybe it was the power play. But there was no time for analysis because his head was turning cloudy with a need he hadn’t had before. He wanted to do things to this woman. He wanted to make her feel the way a good boyfriend would make her feel – desired, wanted, craved. She deserved all that. He could give it to her now. He could give it to her for a week.

About Lauren Blakely:

Lauren Blakely is an unabashed fan of clever jokes, toast, and good guys in novels. Like the heroine in CAUGHT UP IN US, she thinks life should be filled with movie kisses and coffee drinks. Lauren lives in California with her husband and children, and spends her days writing both true stories and make-believe ones.

Welcome to the Bad Boys Vs. Good Boys Blog event hosted by:
Taryn of My Secret Romance, Dawn of Daydrmzzz Blog,
Autumn of The Autumn Review and Kat of The Book Tart.

Character Interview: Quentin Darby (Sometimes called Queen)

1. Name and which book you’re from. Are you good or bad?
My name is Quentin Darby the Third. I am most pleased to meet you, sugah. The name of the book in which I appear is Hearts and Flour. Am I good or bad? Oh my, that is difficult. I try very hard to be good, but I must confess that I have never admitted to my dear grandmother, Mary Beth, that I am gay. And on top of that, I must confess to a great affection for wearing women’s clothes from time to time. And I’ve certainly never told her about that. While I know she would accept me however I am, I hate to be anything less than she would want me to be. But I have met this dear man named Micah, and he is making me want to live a life as myself. So perhaps I’ll get the strength to confess to my grandmother. In answer to your question, many might think I am good, but I seem very wicked to me.

2.  It’s Valentine’s Day. What kind of night do you have planned for your lady friend?
(Laughs.) Well now, my lady friend is, in fact, a gentleman, and we actually met at an Anti-Valentine’s Day party that I must tell you was a bit of an orgy. (Laughs again) And we got right into the swing of it. Oh not with others, you understand, just together. But we did have some great fun up against the wall and on the bathroom counter!

3. While us ladies love to be wined, dined, and *clears throat* loved on Valentine's... What is it you men want most on Valentine's?
While I don’t know about other men, I certainly enjoy the wining, dining and loving myself. But I must confess to being a romantic, and I want to be with someone who truly cares for me and who I can care for in return.

4. Give me your sweetest/dirtiest twitter message (140 characters)
You are as sweet as vanilla lime cupcakes and I’d like to lick your frosting off  LOL #heartsandflour

5.  What do you look for in a woman?
Fashion tips!  LOL

Lightening Speed questions

Blonde’s, Redhead’s, or Brunettes?   
Micah is a brunette, so I must say brunettes.
Boxer’s or Briefs?    
Well, I wear bikini pants, but Micah wears boxer briefs
Chocolate, Strawberry  or Vanilla? 
Oh, I could never choose, sugah
Soft and Sweet or Up Against the Wall?   
Soft and sweet -- up against the wall!
Rain or Snow?   
We never have snow in Laguna, so rain
Cabin or Beach Villa? 
I do love the beach

Limerick: A Young Man from Charleston

Here’s to a young lover named Quentin,
Who’s a sweetie we do want to mention,
He was born in the south, well I say shut my mouth,
And his bakery gets lots of attention. 

When Quentin met Micah one day,
The two hit it off right away,
But a nasty ex-lover
Was soon to discover
Quentin never told grandma he’s gay!

The path of true love is not smooth 
Since Micah loves only raw food.
 Quentin loves to express
By wearing a dress.
Will these two ever get in the mood?

When it looks like the plot will turn crappily,
Grandma steps in very snappily, 
Q. learns Micah is his,
And he’s loved as he is,
And we smile as it all ends up happily.

A raw food fanatic and a cupcake baker -- can two hearts rise above the flour?To Micah Truveen, raw, vegan food is his religion. So when his devoted customers start showing up with white flour cupcakes, Micah could kill. To cap off a rotten day before Valentine’s Day, Micah comes home to find his boyfriend, Dharamaram, in bed with someone else. In frustration, he throws the rat out and agrees to go to his friend’s orgiastic anti-Valentines party where he meets a gorgeous cross-dressing guy who gives him a night to remember.Southerner, Quentin Darby wishes he could stop wearing women’s clothes. He desperately wants to live up to the glowing opinion his grandmother holds of him, so he’s never even told her he’s gay. And now there’s this guy who makes him wish he could just be who he is. But Micah finds out that Quentin is none other than the baker responsible for the plague of cupcakes afflicting the community! And Dharmaram adds a little blackmail to the mix. Two guys with nothing in common except love--food for thought.

About Tara Lain:

Tara Lain, like so many novelists, wrote her first book at five. Writing ability got her through college when there wasn't enough time in the day, and, shortly thereafter, it became a marketable skill. Very early in life, people started paying her to write -- scripts for industrial films, brochures, magazine articles on semiconductors. She became a really successful non-fiction "ghost-writer".

 Now, when you're being paid well to write non-fiction, it's tough to spend time writing fiction that nobody pays you for for a long time. But then Tara found EROM (erotic romance). Always a lover of fantasy, she got hooked on the beauty, emotion, and happily-ever-after of these books (to say nothing of the great sex) and was finally inspired to write one of her own. But writing fiction is REALLY different than non-fiction. There was so much to learn, and after writing her first book she went back to school (via online workshops) and really got down to learning the craft. A year later, she had rewritten that book, and created another one, and a very supportive publisher said yes! Today, she's off and running as a passionate writer of erotic fiction. 

Married to a her soul mate, a wonderful man who surprises her every day, Tara continues to love semiconductors and software and medical devices -- all with a little touch of romance. She's also an artist in her spare time (LOL) working in oil and mixed media collage.

Tara would love to hear from you.

Finding Abigail – Holiday, Montana Book 3

Tyler Cooper is the town sheriff and, in the past, had been the only person keeping Holiday steady. Though the community is now finding out that it’s town is magical, Tyler has always known it—it’s in his blood. He has always known his fate of becoming a cupid, striking love into the hearts others, but an enemy from his past is set on keeping him from finding his own destiny—and love.

Abigail Clarke is leaving Holiday for good. She has to. After years of trying to fit in and make Tyler notice her, she’s giving up. She’s watched her friends fall in love and it’s heartbreaking. Acknowledging that the one man she’s always loved doesn’t want her, it’s time to move on and find her own future.

Right when the stars align and Tyler opens his eyes, his enemy is back and has his sights on Abigail. Abigail is in danger and Tyler may be the only one to stand up to him and save her.

Warning: Contains one sexy sheriff who turns into cupid, complete with bow and arrow, the sweetest teacher you’ll ever meet who needs to find her bad girl side, and a love of candy hearts that’s sure to bring them together.


1. Name and which book you’re from. Are you good or bad?
 I’m Tyler from FINDING ABIGAIL and most would say I’m a bad boy. Yes, that’s at least what Abigail calls me.

2. It’s Valentine’s Day. What kind of night do you have planned for your lady friend? 
Well, considering my job as a cupid means to make sure those around me find the ones they love, I’ll be a bit busy with that. Then of course, I’ll be with Abigail for dinner, candy hearts…and well we need to finish going through her nightstand drawer. My woman has a lot of catching up to do.

3.  If you could wield cupids bow and arrow, who would you shoot and why? 
Ironic right? 
Well, I am a cupid, so I’ve already done it many times. But Brayden and Jackson, the last of my brothers who need wives, are on my list. I think I have an idea for Bray, but Jackson needs a woman. Fast.

4. Whisper sweet nothings in my ear telling me what you will do to me on Valentine's.
 What rating is this blog?*grins* If you were my Abigail….hmm….First I’d make sure you were leaning against the back of the couch in our favorite spot, then I’d like the chocolate we just bought all over your naked body….oh maybe I should stop. You look a bit flushed.

5. While us ladies love to be wined, dined, and *clears throat* loved on Valentine's... What is it you men want most on Valentine's? 
Me? I have it. I found my Abigail. What more do I need? Oh, and of course candy hearts. That’s a given.

6. Give me your sweetest/dirtiest twitter message (140 characters)
Let me unwrap my Valentine. One lick at a time. And when I'm done, I'm going to show you exactly why they call me a bad boy.

7. What do you look for in a woman?
I already found her. She’s sweet, sexy, and just for me.

Lightning Speed questions:

Blonde’s, Redhead’s, or Brunettes?  
Brunette.  Though if Abigail ever decided to change it, I’d change my answer.
Boxers or Briefs? 
Nothing? I’m more of a boxer brief fan.
Chocolate, Strawberry  or Vanilla? 
Chocolate. All. Over. Her.
Soft and Sweet or Up Against the Wall? 
Against the wall. Hell yeah. Hmmm…we haven’t done that in a bit. We just finished on the counter, but the wall would be a nice follow up.
Rain or Snow? 
Snow. Though since I’m the Sheriff, I hate all things that brings idiots on the road.
Cabin or Beach Villa? 
Cabin. Locks. And a bear skin rug where I can lay Abigail out.

~~~~ Limerick ~~~~

I bought you candy  heart last year 
you said it reminded  you that I needed to love you more, my dear. 
this Valentine's Day I promise to hold you and show you I’m yours. 
I bought you a ring, my heart, and a bottle of Coors? 
(I’m sorry by Abigail, I won’t bring cheap beer. Only the good stuff for you.)

Day Four with Taryn Elliott ~ Good Boys Vs. Bad Boys ~ Which do you prefer?

It's the fourth day of the Bad Boys Vs. Good Boys event and I'm rooting for the Bad Boys! Who are you rooting for?
Today we have Shane Justice with us from Taryn Elliott's new book Suspended from Loose Id and he says says he's a good boy.

bad boys good boys button
Welcome to the Bad Boys Vs. Good Boys Blog event hosted by:
Taryn of My Secret Romance, Dawn of Daydrmzzz Blog,
Autumn of The Autumn Review and Kat of The Book Tart.

Happy Book Birthday to miss Taryn Elliott! If you don't already know Taryn is a Twitter-aholic and can can be found Tweeting all the time, as a matter of fact she even does a "Daily Dean - #dailydean" tweet. For those of you asking "Dean" what? It's Dean Winchester or Jensen Ackles of course. Thank you for all those yummy pics Taryn! 

Now onto Mr. Shane Justice...

1. Name and which book you’re from. Are you good or bad? 
My name is Shane Justice and somehow I got top billing in this Taryn Elliott chick’s book, Suspended. I guess I’m a good guy. Kendall calls me Oscar 9 times out of 10, but Oscar’s just a grouch, not an asshole. *crosses arms* Mostly.

2. It’s Valentine’s Day. What kind of night do you have planned for your lady friend? 
Crap. I’m supposed to plan something? You do mean something special right? *pinches bridge of his nose* I’m running out of furniture to make. I already made her a chair and a damn bed. She did like the bed. *smirks* She really liked the bed. 
Maybe I’ll raid the Christmas decorations and do up the barn with all those twinkle lights she loves. Buy her a red silk scarf and try my hand at surprising her again. I got away with it once. I just might be able to do it again. Sunshine—that’s what I call her—she’s a smart woman. I can’t get much past her, but she is distracted with ordering Kain and his crew around now that we’ve got the okay to start building our new house. Our king sized bed is still in my workshop until I can give her four walls and a roof to make things truly official. A little candlelight, a little dinner…a little double duty with the scarf. Maybe even a bottle of wine if I can convince Lily to take care of The Heron for the night.

3.  If you could wield cupids bow and arrow, who would you shoot and why?
I’d shoot Kain. That bastard needs to stop smiling at me so indulgently. He’s my best friend and deserves a little arrow to the ass so he can see firsthand how love changes your whole perspective. The handy super model date is fine for a while, but he could use the love of a good woman to settle him down. He’s overdue for a handy dose of misery with a side benefit of bliss. Everything comes way too easily to that man. Kain needs a woman that will call him on his shit and not let him get away with using all that filthy rich shit and charm to get what he wants.

4. Whisper sweet nothings in my ear telling me what you will do to me on Valentine's.
I’m sure you’re lovely, but a—my wife would kick my ass and sink me in the middle of the lake with a rock tied to my chest, and b—I’m a one woman guy. Now…as to what I’ll do to Sunshine? I think the red scarf is a good clue as to what I’ll do. Use your imagination as to just how I’ll use it. And just how long I use it.

5. While us ladies love to be wined, dined, and *clears throat* loved on Valentine's... What is it you men want most on Valentine's?
I’m not going to give the regular schpiel about the Hallmark holiday that a lot of guys use. I like spoiling Kendall and I especially like when she lets herself put a hold on the B and B caretaker side of her personality and relaxes with me. It doesn’t happen too often, but I savor those nights when she’s all mine. That’s all I want. No interruptions, no to-do lists, no interruptions…did I mention that all ready? It bears repeating. Again…no interruptions. Just me and Sunshine, the dock, and an empty lake with no one else around. Just us on our wide Adirondack chair and her inventive and freaking incredible imagination.

6. What do you look for in a woman?
A few years ago it would have been a simple answer. A lush, experienced woman with attitude to spare. No strings sex and mutual pleasure that fades by morning.
Now? Attitude to spare is still a turn on, but now I can’t get this pint sized blond out of my head. Her crazy wide smile and laugh that makes my gut clench if I’m not close to her. She honestly cares about everyone she meets and makes me want to care too. And she makes me lighten up which everyone I know prefers. 

Lightening Speed questions:

Blonde’s, Redhead’s, or Brunettes? 
Boxer’s or Briefs? 
Chocolate, Strawberry  or Vanilla? 
Soft and Sweet or Up Against the Wall? 
Against the wall
Rain or Snow? 
Cabin or Beach Villa? 

Blurb -
Shane woke to a human vine curled around his legs and waist. She slept heavy and still. Better than a thrasher, but the oddity of having her pressed against him had woken him a few times in the night. He’d wanted her close, had made sure to bring her into his space before dropping off to sleep—and yet that desire was as foreign as it was alluring.
Between getting his furniture company off the ground and the early schedule with Justice Construction, he hadn’t had much opportunity to date anyone. And the few times he’d found someone to share a night with, he made sure to leave before the morning afters.
But he liked her weight, liked her smell on him, liked her hair sliding across his throat—hell, he didn’t have one thing to complain about with her and the horizontal. He wasn’t sure if that was a good or bad thing. The only thing he knew definitively was that it was a dangerous thing.
A pearly mist curled around the basin of El Capitan. It was an impressive mountain, and he’d done his fair share of rock climbing with Kain when they were in college. In the end it was the water that interested them more. They’d traveled during the school breaks to find waves in Australia, Hawaii, and South Africa.
It had been a very long time since he’d been in the park. And having Kendall there with him felt natural. Everything about her felt right and scary as fucking hell. Had this been the old man’s plan all along? Finding family for him?
He wove his fingers through her sunlight-colored strands. Dew dotted her hair, adding another layer of freshness to her fall scent. The curls coiled around his fingers and wrist. The dawn came with the birdcalls of the hawk and fluttering song of the sparrows. The world was coming alive, and it was time for them to go.
One more stop and they’d leave California in their rearview mirror. He would miss it. His life and his friends had been so much a part of the cliffs and waterways of Monterey. But there was nothing there for him any longer. Every day since his dad had died, he’d felt a little more detached from the land and the house. Kain was the only thing holding him to Monterey. And it just wasn’t enough any longer.
Maybe he’d find something new and amazing in New York. Or maybe their shared house was a conduit for them both to start fresh lives. There was a loneliness in Kendall’s eyes sometimes. When her smiles faded and the conversation died away, he caught a look as she took in the miles of trees and foliage of Yosemite. Even in the cliff sides of Monterey, he’d sensed a similar restlessness inside her.
Was it that kinship that drew him to her, or was it more? It felt like more. Why did it have to be now? He didn’t even know where he was going to live. And she sure as hell hadn’t been in his plan.

About Taryn Eliott:
I'm from upstate New York. I have a deep and abiding love for all things music, television, and books. Laughter is the only way to get through this life in tact and I'm willing to share that laughter with everyone I meet. 

I’ll give away a copy of ASHES AND WINE and SUSPENDED
