Six Pack Stud-A-Thon Blog Hop



 
First off I want to thank Close Encounters with the Night Kind, The Jeep Diva and Lea Barrymire for hosting this awesome Blog Hop!  I should also mention that this is my first....yes, a blog hop virgin...but not last...oh, will that make me a blog hop slut?  LOL
 
I thought this would be the perfect blog hop for me because I shop on Amazon for my books/ebooks based on what the cover looks like first.  Story is very important but the cover has to catch my eye and a sex-pack...sorry six-pack is definitely eye catching!  Looking at the books on my Kindle is almost like leafing through the pages of a Playgirl!  What can I say, I love Man Candy and romance books have the best!  I decided for this hop to show you some of my favorite books in the past year or so with their super hot covers!  There are so many great book covers but these three just stood out to me, a fantastic book and a sex-pack...sorry six-pack on the cover. 
 
 Let me tell you first what my giveaway is for this great blog hop......$5.00 Amazon Gift card!  To get an entry in my giveaway, follow my blog via Bloglovin, GFC or email (only need to follow one way, on the top right sidebar) and for additional entries "like" my Facebook page and/or follow me on Twitter (you can earn a total of 3 entries if you do all 3!) then leave a comment with email address (so I can notify you if you are the winner and not for any other reason) and how you follow/name, FB name and/or Twitter name .... easy peasy.  If you have any favorites (great books with hot covers) let me know, I am always on the lookout for some sexy reading!  I will email winner and announce it here by Oct 2!
 
Now here are the books and covers that I think are drool-worthy: (buy links at end of post if any catch your "eye")
 
1)  Claimed: Club Sin (Book 1) by Stacey Kennedy
      

A novel of erotic discovery and forbidden desire that goes beyond Fifty Shades of Grey.

Presley Flynn is ripe to experience her secret fantasies . . . and Dmitri Pratt wants nothing more than to fulfill them. Once inside the elite Club Sin in Las Vegas, Presley is nervous but excited—and determined to surrender to her every desire. Dmitri is her Master, and his touch is like fire. With each careful, calculated caress, he unleashes her wildest inhibitions, giving her unimagined pleasure.
Presley is different than the other submissives Dmitri has mastered. The BDSM lifestyle is new to her, and so are the games they play at Club Sin. From the start, Presley stirs emotions in Dmitri far beyond the raw purity between a Dom and the perfect sub. For the ecstasy they share goes beyond the dungeon, igniting a passion that claims the very depths of the heart.

I loved this book and highly recommend it to lovers of BDSM romances. The character's chemistry is sizzling hot,  the story is super emotional and extremely well written! I finished this book in one sitting, I just could not stop reading it! The cover is sinfully sexy and just yummy....
 
 
 
2)  Still: Long Slow Tease (Book 1) by Ann Mayburn
 
\  Dr. Michelle Sapphire and Gunnery Sergeant Wyatt Callahan formed an unbreakable bond and an unacknowledged, forbidden attraction to each other while serving together in Afghanistan. Their lives are forever changed when a mortar attack grievously wounds Wyatt and Michelle brings him back from the brink of death. But when they both return to the civilian world, Michelle discovers that her rock-solid Marine is suffering from severe PTSD and may even be suicidal.

    Wyatt Callahan fell hard for the aristocratic blonde doctor the moment he laid eyes on her. After reentering civilian life in his hometown near Austin, Texas, Wyatt is plagued by nightmares of the death and suffering he witnessed during the war. He’d love to reach out to Michelle, but — Michelle is a Dominatrix, and she has made it very clear to Wyatt she isn’t interested in a relationship with anyone who doesn’t accept her lifestyle. An Alpha male to the core, he can't imagine the appeal of being submissive. At the same time, the idea of serving Michelle, of being everything she wants and needs, rings true in his wounded soul.

   Michelle has dark secrets of her own, and together with Wyatt she will have to battle her personal demons during their emotional journey of healing, redemption, and love.
 
This was another BDSM romance where I fell in love with the characters and the storyline.  Two strong, alpha characters who just suck you into their life and love!  Another cover that just drew my eyes.....
 
 
 
3) Hard Core by Jennifer Lowery
 
He takes lives. She saves them.  A supposedly hassle-free job for mercenary Cristian Slade becomes a mission of mercy when he saves a life instead of taking one. Slade’s new mission might be his most dangerous yet, because the danger is to his heart.  Tragedy has sent esteemed surgeon Alana O’Grady to a remote a remote Nicaraguan island where she immerses herself in the lives of a native American tribe, using her talents for goodwill instead of wealth and prestige. But life turns upside down when her work requires she protect a rugged mercenary who commands her attention when she’s awake and dominates her dreams while she sleeps.
Doctoring Cristian puts her entire tribe in danger from the man who’s hunting him. Is it her professional oath or her unprofessional attraction to him keeping her from sending him away to heal on his own? Alana’s fire warms Cristian’s heart, but he’s a hardened assassin and has no business falling for someone like her. Can they fight hard enough to keep what they might have together?

A fantastic story of an assassin, who has not cared for really anyone, falling for a doctor who cares for everyone. I finished this book in one sitting as well. This was a great romantic suspense and the cover is deliciousness....
