Bully Me Teaser Reveal Shantel Tessier

There will be more teaser reveals coming soon, each teaser will be one of the 8 participating authors. First off let’s check out the teaser and blurb for Shantel Tessier’s story and then the general information for the anthology will follow.

Make You Beg by Shantel Tessier

Blurb:
Some say what I did was wrong. He was a great guy, a talented athlete who had a big future. People asked me why him as if I had picked a random kid out of a crowd.
He was innocent, they argued. But they were wrong. Blind to the truth that I saw.

He was arrested for his crimes and not even once during his three-month trial did he deny it. The evidence was stacked against him, but the prosecution was missing one key element to convict him.

The body.

I saw it.

I was the one who found her. A young girl taken too soon by a vicious, evil teenage boy.

The media shamed me while praising him. He kept his head held high, and I was an emotional wreck. It hurt to turn my best friend in, and then everyone took his side, warning me to retract my statement. They wanted me to say I was drunk and couldn’t remember what I saw. I knew what happened, and I refused to turn a blind eye.

I’m the only person who can make him pay. Consequences be damned.

And read a short excerpt here:

Excerpt:
“I loved you.”

His body stiffens against mine, and his face goes hard as stone. Tears prick my eyes because the words were true. I loved them all. But Scout? He was the one for me. He was the one that I would do anything for.

“Yeah, I loved you too,” he admits after a long second. His eyes skim over my body, and he pulls his lip back in disgust. “But you chose to betray us.” He turns to walk away, and I refuse to let him have the last word. I didn’t show up here for nothing tonight.

I grab his arm and yank him back to me while my free arm is across my chest, covering my exposed boobs. “I did the right thing.”

He places his hands on the wall, caging me in. He pushes his body into mine, pinning my back to the wall. “Was it the right thing?” he demands. “It cost you everything, Henley.”

I swallow.

“Your friends. Your reputation.”

“You know I don’t care about that.” I’ve never cared much what people think of me.

“And me,” he whispers as if it hurt for him to say it.

My chest tightens. “Scout …”

“I was the biggest price you paid, Henley. Do you regret it?”

Teaser Reveal Charlie – Bully Me


Today is the sixth teaser reveal for Bully Me, featuring my book book in this anthology: Charlie. There will be more teaser reveals coming soon, each teaser will be one of the 8 participating authors. First off let’s check out the teaser and blurb for my story and then the general information for the anthology will follow.

Charlie by Siobhan Davis

Blurb:
Demi
Dropping out of college senior year was never part of my plan. But Dad needs me, and I’d move mountains for the only parent I’ve ever known—even working for the company that fired him. It makes me sick, but I’m low on options.

My boss, Charlie, is determined to make my life a living hell, availing of every opportunity to undermine my confidence, to humiliate and threaten me.

Sleeping with him the night of his wedding might have something to do with his attitude.

Or the fact I’m the spitting image of the woman he really wants.

If our financial situation wasn’t so dire, I’d tell Charlie to stick his job up his delectable butt.

But I’m trapped, and things are only getting worse. Because the more layers I uncover, the more I realize he is nothing l expected and everything I crave.

Charlie
If there was a manual for all the ways a person could mess up his life, it’d have my name written on it.

I can’t undo the things I’ve done, no matter how badly I want to, and every day is a constant reminder of my epic failure.

Especially her.

It’s as if Demi has been put on this earth to punish me. To inflict more torture and pain. Because every second I’m around her, she makes me feel things I don’t want to feel.

So, I lash out. Doing my best to push her away.

Until I realize she’s everything I never knew I needed, and the fight becomes a new battle—one to win her heart.

Rebellion Cover & Blurb Reveal


Today is the cover and blurb reveal for Rebellion, the second book in my new dark reverse harem romance series, The Sainthood – Boys of Lowell High.  I’m loving all the gorgeous covers in this series and I have to give a big shout out to photographer Michelle Lancaster and Robin Harper of WickedByDesign for the cover art. Model Lochie Carey perfectly portrays Galen Lennox – I hope you agree! Releasing April 10th, you can now pre-order your copy on Amazon

Rebellion

Rebellion (The Sainthood – Boys of Lowell High #2)
by Siobhan Davis

Blurb:
Everything changed the night he betrayed me, and now, the game has entered a new level.

Galen did me a favor, reminding me the only person I can count on is myself, and I’m more determined than ever to avenge my father’s death and avoid the destiny Sinner has mapped out for me.

Saint is used to calling the shots, but there are new rules, my rules, and if he wants me in his life, and in his bed, he’ll toe the line. They all will, because I can’t pull this off alone, and they owe me. I’ll enjoy making Galen grovel, seducing Caz, frustrating Saint, and keeping Theo at arm’s length, because they deserve it for failing me.

Sinner thinks he’s in control, but forcing me into initiation plays right into my hands. War has come to Lowell as rival gangs battle The Sainthood for ultimate power, and I enjoy rebelling from the inside, placing more obstacles in Sinner’s path while I exact my revenge.

But I’m not some innocent thirteen-year-old anymore—I have blood on my hands and lethal enemies on my tail.

I’m playing a dangerous game, especially where my heart is concerned, but there’s no turning back. I haven’t come this far to walk away empty-handed, and the more secrets we uncover, the more we realize how far-reaching the betrayal and corruption extend, and there’s no choice anymore.

The Sainthood must be taken down, and we’re the only ones who can do it.

Bully Me Teaser Reveal Sam Mariano


Today is the fifth teaser reveal for Bully Me, featuring Sam Mariano’s book in this anthology. There will be more teaser reveals coming soon, each teaser will be one of the 8 participating authors. First off let’s check out the teaser and blurb for Sam Mariano’s story and then the general information for the anthology will follow.

A prequel to The Boy on the Bridge by Sam Mariano

Blurb:
The day I met Hunter Maxwell he wasn’t the rich kid who lived in the giant house, he wasn’t the most popular guy in school, he certainly wasn’t the bully who had chased his own best friend out of town after a falling out—he was just a boy with a black eye and a dark secret.

My life would have been much easier if I had stayed out of it, but I couldn’t. I saw someone hurting and wanted to help. I saw someone possibly in danger and wanted to make sure he was safe.

There’s nothing safe about Hunter Maxwell, though. I thought there might be. I fell under his spell. Whatever the world saw when they looked at him, it wasn’t what he showed me.

The bond we formed was real. I know it was real. But with Hunter, when the tides turn, you’d better hope you’re safely on the shore and out of his reach.

I thought I was a strong enough swimmer to keep my head above water. I thought if it came down to it, I could resist his pull.

I didn’t know, but now I do.

Once Hunter sets his sights on you, there’s no such thing as out of his reach. Whether it’s today, tomorrow, or five years from now, he’s coming for me—and when he does, he won’t stop until he’s destroyed me.

About the Author:
SAM MARIANO is the author of the bestselling bully romance Untouchable as well as many other love stories featuring dark and damaged heroes.

Like You Care by Kaydence Snow

I want him to see me.

I’m not who he thinks I am but I’m starting to suspect he’s not all he says he is either.

About the Book

Rydeville Elite Box Set (Rydeville Elite #1-3)
by Siobhan Davis

Book Description:
This box set includes the first three books in the highly addictive Rydeville Elite series from USA Today bestselling author, Siobhan Davis, and is over 1,000 pages of heart-stopping angst, suspenseful twists and turns, and dark, twisted romance. Complete trilogy with HEA.

In the power struggle between two elite groups, one feisty girl will bring them to their knees…

Life is a cruel game where only the most ruthless survive. It’s a truth my mother rebelled against, and she paid for it with her life. Now, I play their game. Publicly accepting the destiny that lies in wait for me when I turn eighteen.

But, behind closed doors, I plot my escape.

Trent, Charlie, and my twin, Drew, rule the hallways of Rydeville High with arrogance and an iron fist. I execute my role perfectly, hating every second, but they never let me forget my place in this world.

Everyone obeys the rules. They have for generations. Because our families have always been in control.

Until Cam, Sawyer, and Jackson show up. Throwing their new money around. Challenging the status quo. Setting hearts racing with their gorgeous faces, hot bodies, and bad boy attitudes.

Battle lines are drawn. Sides are taken. And I’m trapped in the middle, because I made a mistake one fateful night when I gave my V-card to a stranger in a blatant F you to my fiancé.

I thought it was the one thing I owned. A precious memory to carry me through each dark day.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Because the stranger was Camden Marshall, leader of the new elite and my perpetual tormenter. He hates me with a passion unrivaled, and he won’t be the only one. Fire will rain down if the truth is revealed, threatening alliances, and the power struggle will turn vicious.

My life will hang in the balance.

But I’ll be ready, and I’m not going down without a fight.

First off let’s check out the teaser, cover and blurb for Coralee June’s story and then the general information for the anthology will follow.

The Original Bullet by Coralee June

Blurb:
There’s a new boy next door.

He’s got cold eyes and a name too big for this tiny, pretentious town—Gavriel Moretti. I like to watch him sometimes from my window. I like to imagine his killer smile twisting that mouth up into words meant only for me.

He had me figured out the first day we met. He called me out on my bullshit and pushed me away, but I was determined to be Gavriel Moretti’s friend. Maybe I liked cruel boys. Maybe I was lonely.

Or maybe he was the first real thing I’d ever laid eyes on, and I was determined to escape my fake life.

First he hated me. Then he liked me. And maybe one day, if I was lucky enough, Gavriel Moretti would love me.

*this is a prequel to the completed International Bestselling Bullets trilogy. This trilogy is a dark Reverse Harem Romance.

About the Author:
I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people. I love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into developing real, raw, and relatable characters.

I like flawed and beautiful things.

I’m a Texas State University English Major, and my wild affair with literature began at a young age. I’ve always stayed up past my bedtime to read the stories your mother wouldn’t approve of.

I love angst. I love to crack open a book and borrow the character’s emotions for a bit. It’s how I approach writing, too.

I live in Dallas, Tx with my husband and two beautiful, headstrong daughters. I enjoy long walks through the ice cream aisle at my local grocery store and listening to gangster rap in my minivan.

First off let’s check out the blurb for CM Stunich’s story, an excerpt and the teaser for her story and then the general information for the anthology will follow.

Blurb:
I crashed my shitty yellow VW Beetle into Calix’s Aston Martin.
To be fair, he deserved it.
But Calix and his friends, Barron and Raz, they don’t see it that way.

Not that it matters.
They’ve bullied me for years, and I’ve never known why.
At least today, they have something real to be pissed about.
All of which would be fine, if today was a normal day.
But it’s not. It’s far from normal.
My mantra has always been this too, shall pass.

But not today.
Not the worst day of my life.
Hot bullies, busted cars, and pain.

Somebody kill me now.

And read on for a short excerpt of this story!

EXCERPT
There’s blood all over my steering wheel.
The strange thing is, I can’t remember how it got there.
Reaching shaking fingers up to my head, I come away with a smear of ruby red on my hand, the perfect match to the blood on the steering wheel. This is my blood. The thought comes to me along with fits and spurts of memories from this morning. Running late, spilling scalding coffee down my chest, finding my dress for tonight’s party missing from the clothesline out front.
I shake my head, and a wave of dizziness washes over me. Looking up, I see the shiny black surface of Calix Knight’s Aston Martin dented and streaked with yellow paint. My bumper is very firmly planted into his driver’s side door.
Speaking of … my own door flies open, and Calix’s warm hand is on my upper arm, not, unfortunately, to offer assistance of any kind. Instead, he jerks me out of the seat and slams me back against the side of my car.
“Are you fucking insane?!” he snarls, releasing me as several concerned citizens approach us, all of them huddled under the protective awning that covers the gas pumps. Just past its barrier, rain pours in a seemingly endless wave, a cold chill working its way into my skin as I shiver and try to remember how I managed to crash into his absurdly expensive car. Without insurance.
Swallowing a lump in my throat, I glance over to see that his car’s parked perfectly straight in the space, right next to the gas pump. My own car—which I bought off my neighbor for about two hundred bucks—is perpendicular to his, T-boned into the side of Calix’s like I did it on purpose.
Did I? Would I?
After all the years of suffering he and his friends have put me through, it wouldn’t surprise me.
I glance back at his face, too handsome for his own good, with cheekbones carved by the gods, and a mouth that’d be worth millions if it ever smiled. The only expressions I’ve ever seen Calix Knight wear on his face are a cruel frown and a red-hot smirk.
Once, I saw his orgasm face. And even that was vicious, his hands a hot cruelty on my hips, triumph written into every line of his wicked visage. I should never have slept with him. My mistake. I don’t often make the same mistakes twice, but … I’ve just rammed him, apparently. Different sort of ramming, still not a good idea.

About the Author:
C.M. Stunich is a self-admitted bibliophile with a love for exotic teas and a whole host of characters who live full-time inside the strange, swirling vortex of her thoughts. Some folks might call this crazy, but Caitlin Morgan doesn’t mind—especially considering she has to write biographies in the third person. Oh, and half the host of characters in her head are searing hot bad boys with dirty mouths and skillful hands (among other things). If being crazy means hanging out with them every day, C.M. has decided to have herself committed.
She hates tapioca pudding, loves to binge on cheesy horror movies, and is a slave to many cats. When she’s not vacuuming fur off of her couch, C.M. can be found with her nose buried in a book or her eyes glued to a computer screen. She’s the author of over eighty novels—romance, new adult, fantasy, and young adult included. Please, come and join her inside her crazy. There’s a heck of a lot to do there.
Oh, and Caitlin loves to chat (incessantly), so feel free to e-mail her, send her a Facebook message, or put up smoke signals. She’s already looking forward to it.

Carlisle Castle hides two of our most awful secrets.

Vaughn thinks he can kill the ghosts of his past, but what he doesn’t know? It’s my heart he’s slaying.

Sneak peek:
We were told we were a cut above the rest, the future of artists all over the world. We had the talent, the status, the money, and the opportunity. But if we were silver, Vaughn Spencer was gold. If we were good, he was brilliant. And when we shone? He gleamed with the force of a thousand suns, charring everything around him.

It was like God had carved him differently, paid extra attention to detail while creating him. His cheekbones were sharper than scalpel blades, his eyes the palest shade of blue in nature, his hair the inkiest black. He was so white I could see the veins under his skin, but his mouth was red as fresh blood—warm, alive, and deceiving.

He fascinated and infuriated me. But just like everyone else, I kept my distance from him. He wasn’t here to make friends. He’d made that clear by never attending the food hall or any of the social functions.

Another thing Vaughn had and I didn’t? My father’s admiration. I didn’t know why the great Edgar Astalis fawned over some boy from California, but he did, nonetheless.

Papa said Vaughn was going to do something special. That one day, he would be Michelangelo big. I believed him.

And so, I hated Vaughn.
