Grab this hot gritty romance at this special release price!

Grumpy bad boy tattoo artist, Conor Mac Haol, doesn’t trust anyone. Least of all the new juvie apprenticing at his beloved Dublin Ink as part of her probation. She is way too pretty and way, way too young.

Coming from a broken home, Aurnia has had to grow up faster than most girls. She doesn’t need anyone telling her what to do.
Least of all Conor, her new (very hot, very muscled, very tattooed and very, very rude) boss who obviously hates her.

But Aurnia’s troubles reminds Conor too much of his dark past. He becomes obsessed with keeping her safe. Keeping her protected.
Even from him. Especially from him.

Soon sparks and insults turn into broken rules and forbidden moments—until one final mistake seals their fate.


Excerpt:

Aurnia

I fumbled for the metal posts. My fingers curled around the icy shafts.
I could feel him stroking himself just behind me. Could feel his rough knuckles against my ass. Feel the tremble of his chest against the shivers that ran down my spine.
“Are you holding on?”
I nodded even though he couldn’t possibly have seen.
“Words, Aurnia.”
“Yes.”
“Yes, what?”
I swallowed. “Yes, sir.”
“I’m going to fuck you. Hard.”
I bit back a moan. We were supposed to be quiet. I could be quiet. I could be—oh, God, how I wanted to moan. How I wanted to lean my head back into the crook of Conor’s neck and bite my lip as I growled his name. How I wanted to bang my fists against those metal racks till Mason and Rian came running down at the noise.
“Fuck, you’re so wet,” Conor said, his cock at the dripping lips of my pussy. “You want to be fucked hard, dirty girl.”
I whimpered and tightened my grip on the icy rods. Conor’s hands were like brands on my hips. As he thrust deep and hard into me, I released one of my hands to cover my mouth. I would have screamed otherwise. I would have screamed, “More, more, fucking more.”
Conor stopped.
“You gotta hold on, baby,” he said, his voice like a whip, a whip I wanted harder.
I sank my teeth into my bottom lip before grabbing once more, this time with a trembling hand to the cold, hard metal.
Conor slapped my ass and bit my shoulder as I tried not to gasp.
“Good girl.”

EXCERPT:

“I don’t even like y’all fuckers anymore,” Gwen harrumphs. “You’re annoying, Lex. I really hate that Mickey’s a better mean girl than me when she wants to be. She can’t do that. That’s my role. And I hate that Thea just walked in here and stole everyone away–except Megan, and let’s be honest, she’s the booby prize.” She slaps her hands on her lap and looks miserable. “I guess I’ll notify AAMU of my acceptance. My dad’s going to have a shitfit that we can’t get the application fee back from PUH. I’ll start looking at Gen-Ed courses tonight.”

She stands and stretches. “I hate you, you horrid fuck, Lexa. I really hope y’all are worth it. Now press them titties against mine!” She opens her arms. “Bring it in, Penby.”

I smirk and move in for a hug.

“Nothing feels better than girl tits against girl tits.” She snuggles in closer and presses her face against mine. “Well, I guess that isn’t true. But it is the best thing you can do with a girl with her clothes on.” Gwen murmurs in my ear wiggling to hug me tighter, pushing her knee between mine and her thigh into the juncture of my thighs. “You’re soft, Penby.”

“You’re a hair away from a sexual assault, Lapsley,” I say laughing. “But, thanks. The boobs are wasted on me. No one has touched them other than me and an occasional accidental grope from Michaela during her sleep, in a not sexy way.”

Gwen pulls back far enough for us to be nose to nose. “You really didn’t fuck that hot motherfucker?”

I shake my head. Gwen hugs me again and wiggles suggestively against me. “I will totally pity fuck you, Lex.”

I close my eyes tight and shake with laughter. Pulling away I hold up a hand, “No need, I’m good.”

Gwen grabs my hand. “It’s not a new thing for me. I’m good at it. Bi-wonderous even. I’m fucking aces at eating bitches out. Take off those leggings and let’s play doctor.” She pinches the fabric from the side of my hip and tugs them down.

“NO! Hard pass!” I laugh and turn away from her, moving to my dresser to pick up her keys then tossing them to her.

“Fine. I’ve got shit to do.” Gwen sighs. “I’m leaving the offer on the table. You are a hot piece of ass, and women need to help each other out. Especially friends. Pussy Power!”

I nod my head slowly and mouth the words ‘pussy power’ back at her. She holds up her hand for a fist bump and heads out.

Author Bio:

Ali Lucia Sky is the author of The Powers That Be series. She lives in Southern California with her husband and a house full of kitty cats and a yard full of crows.

She loves laughing, drinking good coffee, the smell of pizza, and supporting animal rescues.

When she isn’t writing or dreaming of new stories, she can be found planning her next vacation because traveling is LIFE.

If you encounter her in the wild, don’t be offended if she should run away. She’s timid with strangers, but can be plied with shiny things and pictures of your cat or dog.

She’s a weirdo like that.

REBELLION banner

I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the REBELLION by C.J. Listro Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway! Link in bio.

 

Title: REBELLION (Rebellion Chronicles #1)

Author: C.J. Listro

Pub. Date: February 15, 2022

Publisher: C.J. Listro

Formats: Paperback, eBook

Pages: 397

Find it: GoodreadsAmazon, Kindle, B&NiBooks, Kobo

Perfect for fans of TWILIGHT, SUPERNATURAL, RIVERDALE, and Cassandra Clare.

 

Chloe is well aware that she’s ordinary. So, when bad-boy Tyler starts talking to her, she’s convinced he must have an ulterior motive. What she doesn’t suspect is that he’s actually a demon escaped from Hell to live out his college-age dreams of going to concerts and playing in a punk metal band. And that he actually likes her. Soon, swoons and romantic dates replace Chloe’s trepidation.

But as Chloe and her new friend Alicia are dragged deeper in Tyler’s world, they realize that many less-friendly demons roam the Earth too. And one of them is murdering girls—girls who look a lot like Chloe.

With the help of Tyler and a contingent of angels, Chloe and Alicia take the paranormal investigation into their own hands. Because if they don’t find out which demon is murdering girls soon, Chloe will be next.


Excerpt:

We didn’t really talk as we walked across the grass away from the tennis courts, toward the wide expanse of open field between the sports complex and the walking paths around the lake. The lake was huge, and it was a cloudy, cool day for summer, so there weren’t many people here. It was easy to find a path with no one nearby. I wanted to find someplace to sit, but as we crossed onto a footbridge and Tyler leaned over the rail, excitedly pointing out the gross giant goldfish, I lost it.
“Enough with the mind games, Tyler. I know what you are.”
He had his back to me. Turning around slowly, one eyebrow quirked, he said, “What are you talking about, Chloe?” He laughed. “I mean, we’ve kind of already covered that I’m a musical genius if that’s what you mean.”
Now that he was facing me, I could feel myself getting nauseous, but I’d practiced this. I could do it. Clenching my hands tightly, I shook my head. “No. That’s the thing. You’re too perfect. You know things you couldn’t know. You can see bad things before they happen. You’re completely gorgeous.”
“There’s nothing weird about being hot.” Maybe I was paranoid now, but still, I thought he looked tenser than usual. He was gripping the handrail of the bridge so tightly that his knuckles were white, and he looked like he had stopped breathing.
“That’s not it.” I took a deep breath, but I was still shaking. “I mean, no one knows anything about you. You never talk about your past or your family. You never even talked to anyone before me, and even when you’re with me, you never say anything about yourself. You have visions…your eyes are glowing red, and you have visions of the future, for crying out loud. I mean, did you think I’d never figure it out?”
“Figure what out?” He wasn’t smirking anymore.
“You’re a vampire.”
His eyes opened wide…and then he burst out laughing.
