Lips Close to Mine to Me by Robin Bielman

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: November 20th

Synopsis

I wasn’t supposed to see Levi Pierce ever again. A few months ago, he charmed the pants off me and we spent one incredible night together.

End of story.

Only it wasn’t. Pretty soon everywhere I turn, I see him. Our best friends are dating. My mother mistakenly—and happily—thinks he’s my plus-one to my cousin’s wedding. And he’s the guy I have to work with on the most important job opportunity of my life.

Here’s my problem: I like Levi. I like his killer smile and his dreamboat eyes and definitely the way he makes me feel in bed. But I’ve sworn off relationships. So when the sexual tension reaches epic proportions and we fall back into bed together, I tell myself it’s temporary. When I start to feel more, I tell myself it’s over.

Only Levi isn’t a forget-it kind of guy. When his lips are close to mine and he swears he’s always wanted me, my defenses disappear. But some things in life just aren’t meant to be.

Or are they?

Talk British to Me, an all-new sexy STANDALONE romance from Robin Bielman is now LIVE!

TalkBritishToMe_1600x2400

Talk British to Me by Robin Bielman

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

As the Dating Guy on L.A.’s top morning show, I give the single guy’s perspective on dating, love, and sex—and I give great advice. Everyone’s hooking up…well, except for me. Sure, I can get any woman I want, but I’ve got a “no relationship” clause in my contract and the only woman I want has “relationship” written all over her. Probably stamped on her ass, too. And wouldn’t I like to confirm that.

Unfortunately, she wants nothing to do with me. At all. Something about the next Ice Age might have even come up in her rebuttal. Adorable. Because she’s determined to ignore what one simple kiss proved: she wants me as badly as I want her.

Everything in me is screaming to go after her, but I’ve got a secret that I’m fairly certain will end up with her roasting my nuts over an open fire. So, job on the line? Check. Nuts on the line? Check. Can’t get her out of my head? Nail…meet coffin. But what a way to go…

Excerpt

My cell pings with an incoming text as I approach the garage elevator, so I’m not exactly paying attention when I hear the elevator arrive and sense someone step out. I think I walk around the person, but my shoulder bumps hers.

The delicate feel of her has me jerking my head up.

“Sorry,” we say at the same time.

She’s holding a box piled high with envelopes that partially block her face. I don’t know if it’s from our slight collision or a natural misstep, but the box wobbles in her hands. She sucks in a breath. I slip my arm under the box to help keep it from tipping over, but that seems to make it worse, because the next thing I know, the envelopes are spilling out onto the ground.

“Son of a biscuit!” she says, unable to stop the box from crashing down but keeping herself on both feet.

I burst out laughing.

Hear me out. The “son of a biscuit” is damn adorable. I’ve never heard anyone actually use it before. But better still, the beautiful creature spewing such foul language is none other than the girl who dumped chicken wings on me. Teague.

“I’m glad you find this so—”

She stalls, finally meeting my eyes. Recognition crosses her face as she scrunches up her cute little nose in annoyance.

“Amusing?” I finish for her.

She opens her mouth to speak, but nothing comes out. The two of us running into each other again is pretty unbelievable. She huffs out a breath that’s a mixture of contempt and surprise.

“I’m just as surprised as you, baby.”

This time the sound she makes from the back of her throat is pure disgust. She drops to all fours to gather the envelopes back into the box.

I bend down to help, reaching for envelopes while never taking my eyes off her. She’s pissed about more than the dropped cargo. “Bad day?” I say.

She glares at me.

“I’m sorry about bumping you. I was looking down at my phone and thought I had plenty of room.”

Picture a hot girl with blue eyes so kind she couldn’t look daggers no matter how hard she tried. That’s what I’m privileged enough to be staring at now. The corners of my mouth pull up involuntarily. Her mouth, while set in a tight line, is sexy as fuck, those generous lips of hers distracting. “Seriously, Teague, I’m sorry.”

Her expression goes from hard to soft instantly. She sits back on her haunches, puts her hands on her thighs. “You remember my name?”

Talk British to Me by Robin Bielman

Release Date Reveal: June 19th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

I’m not being cocky when I say I get attention from millions of women. As the Dating Guy on morning radio’s top L.A. music station, it’s my job to give the single guy’s perspective on dating, love, and sex, and I’m killing it in the ratings. The best part? I have to stay single (it’s in my contract) and with a faux British accent on air, no one knows who I really am. The mystery is part of my impressive appeal.

I love my job.

I’m great at it.

I have no trouble getting a date or getting laid.

Until I meet her. Teague Watters. She’s a breath of fresh air, and I can’t stop thinking about her. As a rule, I always leave women wanting more. But this time I want more. Teague is into me, I can see it in her eyes, yet she’s playing hard to get. Well, bring it, because I’m game for the chase.

Circumstances deem I should keep my distance so I don’t hurt either one of us. But the fact is, I’m having a hard time backing off. Because sometimes the thing you can’t have is the thing you want—and need—the most.

REVIEW – ONCE UPON A ROYAL CHRISTMAS by Robin Bielman

one-upon-a-royal-christmas-cover

SYNOPSIS:

Colliding with a prince while dog walking isn’t how Rowan Palotay pictured meeting royalty, but then lately her life hasn’t gone according to plan. With one teensy tiny mistake, her job as a news reporter took a turn for the worse and now she’s lucky to have a small pet column in the local newspaper. Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy and magic, but she feels like she’s forever stuck on the naughty list.

Prince Theodore Chenery is in Marietta shortly after the death of his mother to meet his grandparents for the first time. When an accidental run-in—literally—with Rowan leads to an unexpected friendship, he finds himself enchanted with the outspoken, feisty country girl. She’s unlike anyone he’s ever met and her special brand of kindness and honesty make it harder and harder to remember his obligations back home.

Rowan can’t afford one more mistake, and Theo’s future is already mapped out, but when they find it impossible to fight the passion and deep-rooted emotions between them, they discover what matters most. Until their relationship makes worldwide news…and Theo must decide whether or not to follow his heart or his royal duty.

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****4.5 STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

She set his blood on fire with a simple touch. Made every possessive bone in his body hers when she let her defenses down and talked to him. Her vulnerability turned him on at the same time it stoked his desire to take care of her.

once-upon-a-royal-christmas-teaser-1

I have to say there is something magical about the Christmas season. Even though the weather gets too cold for my liking, I do enjoy the holiday season. All the Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel and the Christmas Romance novels are leaving me on a constant sugar high on some decadently sweet love stories. I can almost find that little girl inside of me who believed in fairytales and happily ever afters. What I can’t believe is that this is maybe the second book I’ve read that involved a romance between a common girl and a royal prince. This is the ultimate fairy tale trope and I live for this kind of sappy goodness!!! Once Upon a Royal Christmas was a delightful read but it definitely had a satisfying amount of steam as well.

once-upon-a-royal-christmas-teaser-3

Rowan Palotay’s world is about to go from being dull to vibrant and exciting when she crosses paths with Prince Theodore Chenery of Montanique. Theo is visiting his maternal grandparents, who happen to live in Rowan’s hometown- Marietta, Montana. Prince Theo’s mom was in a car accident and died a few months ago. Her last wish was for Theo to go to Marietta and meet his grandparents. The trip couldn’t have come at a better time because his father, the King, is demanding that he marries soon in order to carry on their bloodline. Both his father and his older brother were allowed to marry for love but Prince Theo is being forced into an arranged marriage with someone of royal lineage. It’s not something that he particularly wants to do but being the dutiful son that he is, he feels he must do whatever his father asks of him. Theo never expected to find true love during his visit to Marietta.

From the moment Theo and Rowan run into each other, there is an undeniable chemistry between them. Rowan works for the local paper and had been recently demoted to covering the Pet column after having gotten romantically involved with one of the subjects of her news article. Now her boss has assigned her to report on Prince Theo’s visit to Marietta and this assignment was actually at the request of the Prince himself. She’s warned to keep things professional or she will be fired. So Rowan will soon be faced with a dilemma as it becomes pretty evident that there is no way things could stay strictly platonic between her and Theo. She really does put up a very good effort at first but once they start spending more time together and getting to know one another on a deeper level, the feelings that develop will be beyond impossible to ignore.

once-upon-a-royal-christmas-teaser-2

But how can they have a future when Prince Theo is to marry someone else? Will they be able to walk away from each other when the time comes with their hearts intact? Or will true love win in the end?

If you are like me and you enjoy a really sweet Christmas romance, you will definitely want to pick this one up!!

I absolutely enjoyed this story and found it hard to put down!!

WRAPPED UP IN READING’s REVIEW OF ONCE UPON A ROYAL CHRISTMAS

goodreads-badge-add-38px

once-upon-a-royal-christmas-teaser-4

EXCERPT:

Rowan slipped off her coat and hung it on the iron wall rack in her small entryway. She took Theo’s coat and hung it up beside hers. Then she slipped her hand inside his much larger one and led him down the hallway to her bedroom. They didn’t talk and the silence acted like a form of foreplay, heightening the air around them, letting her mind wander to all sorts of sexy scenarios.

All night. She had all night with him.

At her silent maneuvering, Theo sat on the upholstered bench at the foot of her bed. “Stay,” she whispered into his ear.

Her sleepover. Her rules.

She’d left on the small bedside lamp, but the soft lighting wasn’t enough. She wanted to feast her eyes on him, not guess, so she walked over to the standing lamp in the corner and turned it on. Better.

His heated gaze ate her up as she stepped back into his personal space. “The way your body moves in that dress makes me crazy,” he said.

“Good crazy?” She slid her hands inside his tuxedo jacket, around his shoulders, and slowly slipped the coat down his arms, stopping halfway and trapping his arms behind him.

Excitement and I’m-game-for-whatever-you-want flashed in his eyes. “Unbelievably good.”

“I like that.” She undid the buttons of his white dress shirt, pressed her lips to his neck. He smelled so good she hoped his scent lingered on her skin and her sheets for days. “Know what else I like?”

“What?” he asked, his voice husky.

“You.”

“I like you, too. Let me show you how much.”

“After I show you.” She unbuttoned the rest of his shirt. With each open clasp, she placed an openmouthed kiss to his hot, smooth skin. A light dusting of blond hair covered his muscular chest. She moved lower to hard, sculpted abs. He must do at least a thousand crunches a day. The muscles there jumped when she kissed below his belly button.

“If you’re planning to continue progressing this slow, it’s going to be a problem.”

She’d noticed his “problem.” It was hard not to.

“Are you laughing at me?” he goaded, his voice full of fun.

“No, no. I’m laughing at my own silly joke in my head.” She put her hands on his thighs. “Sorry,” she added, suddenly realizing she was nervous and that was why she’d decided on a slow seduction.

This night with Theo meant more than a quick trip between the sheets.

“You never have to be sorry when you’re with me.” His hands cupped her jawline, and he leaned forward to brush a kiss to her lips.

“You freed your arms.”

“I’m taking over.”

She stepped back. “Really?” It wasn’t so much a protest as a challenge. One she had every intention of letting him win. Her rules were overrated.

She was under his skin. Had been for weeks if he were honest. He didn’t want these feelings of devotion and attachment, like she belonged to him and no other man would get to touch her ever again. Falling for his best friend, heart and soul, hadn’t been part of their deal.

I like trying out new authors now and then. Sometimes it actually pays off when I do. I have come across some whose writing styles I seem to connect with. Robin Bielman ended up being one of those authors. I honestly hadn’t heard of her before but when I read the synopsis of The Best Friend Bargain, I knew that I had to give this one a try. I absolutelyLOVE the friends-to-lovers trope and this story ended up being pretty fabulous. I was worried that the schmexy would be luke-warm or that the author would come off skittish while writing the steamy scenes, but let me just say, my panties were thoroughly melted!!! And even though the cover made me think this would be a light and low on the angst read, I am happy to report that my angst needs were very much satisfied as well.

Olivia Lincoln finds herself back home after having lived in England for the past six months. She decided to leave the states after she lost her job which really ended up messing with her head. Liv left without saying a proper goodbye to her best friend, Danny. But now she finds herself in a bit of a pickle and the only one she can turn to is Danny. Liv is pregnant and her boyfriend back in London made it pretty clear to her that he never thought of their relationship as long term and also doesn’t want to be a father to their unborn child. Heartbroken and disillusioned, Liv turns to the one man who has always been her rock. She asks Danny if he would marry her and pretend to be the father in order to avoid her mother’s castigation. At first, he’s a little apprehensive but in all the years that they have been friends, he has never been able to deny Liv anything. On the plus side, his impending marriage and fatherhood help him to buy the house that he’s been renting from the owner, who was only looking to sell to a young family.

 

Liv and Danny settle into their new relationship rather easily. A little too easy. It seems they may have always felt something more than friendship for each other but were too scared and maybe just a little too dense to see that true love had been right in front of their eyes for so many years. Liv thought that Danny preferred the life of the player, but deep down Danny had always wanted her but his fears made him keep those feelings at bay. I have to say that Danny rated high on the swoon-worthy scale for me.

Well once the attraction between them becomes impossible to ignore, the steam kicks up a thousand degrees. I was more than pleased with how incredibly schmexy the scenes became and then, BAM, a curveball is thrown and we find ourselves in the midst of some major angst!! You could just call me a smitten kitten with this story after that!!

This was book three in the Kisses In The Sand series, but can be read as a standalone. Each book centers around a different couple and all were in this one as secondary characters. I will definitely be making some time in the near future to read the other books in this series.

The Best Friend Bargain is currently available. If you love a good friends-to-lovers story, this is one you surely won’t want to miss!!

Synopsis: The one guy she shouldn’t want…

Honor Mitchell has lived with guilt and regret for a long time, so when she promises to do the things on her dying best friend’s wish list, she’s determined to follow through and do something right for a change. But when she’s thrown together for wedding duties with the one man who complicates her vow–just by looking at him–she has to put her faith in Bryce Bishop’s pledge to help her, no strings attached.

Bryce’s near one-night stand with his ex-girlfriend’s best friend a few months ago might have been a mistake, but helping the beautiful, free-spirited Honor with her promise isn’t. His trust in women is shot, but he can’t help but play his best man card to his advantage and help Honor tick off the items on his ex’s list, even if it puts him in a no-win situation. Because his assistance might get Honor what she wants, but suddenly being the do-good guy puts his plans–and heart–in serious jeopardy.

EXERPT

“Sorry,” she murmured. “But we’re having a wedding.”

Danny took her hand and gave a gentle tug so she had to follow him. “Instead of a swear jar, I’m going to start a sorry jar and charge you a dollar for every time you say it.” He led her to the couch. “Knock it off, okay?” He propped an extra pillow behind her back and sat far enough away for her to straighten her legs and put her feet in his lap.

She’d baked him chocolate chip cookies this morning. It was payback time.

“When?” he asked, taking her heel and massaging the bottom of her foot.

It took her a minute to realize he meant the wedding. “New Year’s Eve.”

“Where?”

“Backyard.”

He let out a breath. “Okay. Sounds good.”

“No it doesn’t.” She knew he was just appeasing her.

“It does actually. My original concern had to do with family and friends making a big production of it, but I can deal with something small. We’re friends doing this for a good reason, Liv, and a ceremony means something to you.”

Friends. She was starting to hate that word. She understood his explanation, but because he obviously wasn’t feeling any of the new sensations between them that she was, he didn’t see the harm in his casual attitude.

He rubbed the ball of her foot, making her sink a little further into the couch.

Silence rained between them like a hailstorm. She had to tell him about the unwelcome but stubborn desires making her hot and needy before she acted on impulse and did something stupid like jump him.

“Things are different,” she whispered to her lap, unable to meet his eyes when she admitted that.

When he didn’t answer right away, she looked up.

Pain filled the line between his furrowed brows, but agreement and…she couldn’t take a breath for a moment…heat shimmered in his direct gaze. “Yeah.”

Her toes started to tingle, the buzz continuing up her legs and spreading over every inch of her skin. He shared her crazy attraction. Comfort mixed with desire. “I should leave.”

“No. I want you to stay.”

A thrill moved up her spine. So did fear and uncertainty. “I’d die if anything happened to our friendship, Danny.”

“Nothing—”

“They say relationships ruin the best friendships, you know.”
