Excerpt:

 

An excerpt from CALL TO ENGAGE

Copyright © Tawny Weber 2017

 

Incredible.

 

That was the only word in his head as the aftershocks trembled through their bodies.

 

Incredible.

 

And then he came down.

 

Not in a nice, slow, gentle descent, either.

 

Nope, he crashed like a plane plummeting from the sky to ram into a mountainside.

 

He’d just had sex.

 

With Ava.

 

His ex-wife. The only woman he’d ever loved. The only one he’d ever wanted to love. The one who’d broken his heart into tiny little pieces and tossed them aside.

 

Shit.

 

His body still slick with sweat, the scent of Ava wrapped around him like a second skin, Elijah wondered if she realized that while extracting her promise of no regrets, he hadn’t offered the same.

After all, Elijah knew just how pointless promises could be. Especially the ones between him and Ava.

 

His body spent, his mind worn, he couldn’t find anything left to offer up on the altar of past regrets, though. He wrapped his arm tighter around her shoulders. Ava responded by snuggling closer, her thigh nestled between his as she shifted her chin into the indention where his shoulder met his chest. Her breath fluttered over his throat, soft and easy in sleep.

 

Regret?

 

Oh yeah, he knew he’d regret this in the morning. Hell—he glanced out the window, gauging the time from the angle of the moon—it was nearing dawn and the regret was already winding through him. Shoving aside pleasure, easing out satisfaction.

 

Closing his eyes against it, he drifted into sleep with her hand entwined with his, the twisted band of her ring rubbing gently between his fingers.

 

And he knew it for the talisman it was, the hope that lifted him from his nightmares.

 

If only for tonight.

 

Because nobody knew better than Elijah that tonight was all they had.

 

 

 

 

Call to Engage (Team Poseidon #2)Call to Engage by Tawny Weber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 2nd book in the Team Poseidon series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding of the series & characters, I recommend reading this fast paced series in order.

Elijah has a lot going on at work and in his personal life. He comes home to rest, and runs smack into his ex. He may be ready to make major changes in his life. If only he could decide between the professional and the personal that haunt him.

Ava is completely turned upside down to see her ex-husband. Too many memories just bombard her at the sight of him. Can she forgive and forget? It is obvious they still feel something for one another.... and hopefully they won't set anything but themselves on fire with all this heat.

Such an incredible series! This book shows that not only is this series getting hotter, but the author just kicks it up a notch with each story. I felt for the characters in this book. I could tell they needed one another. And...the sparks.... well let's just say you may want to read this on with the fan facing you. Something for everyone in this story.

Vivian wiggled into the most romantic corner booth she could wheedle and ordered a sparkling water.  No point enjoying wine until she knew she’d enjoy the evening, too. 

 

   She pulled out her cellphone.  No cancellation message. 

 

   That was a good sign, wasn’t it? 

 

   Half the time, Vivian felt like her dreams were a tease.  All too often she got within kissing distance of her goal, and poof, there it went.  No big payoff, no awesome climax, nothing. 

 

   Because, why?  Because she always blew it. 

 

   She shouldn’t have told him her name. 

 

   She should have teased instead, said she’d tell him tonight. 

 

   Maybe she shouldn’t have let him in on the what she made at The Sweet Spot, either.  Sure, a lot of guys saw that as a turn on, but there were just as many who subscribed to the prude theory.  Like her brother.        

 

   And he was Mike’s friend. 

 

   Then again, so was Lenny. 

 

   Before she’d finished her confused sigh, Zane walked in. And all of her doubts took a backseat to the sight of how gorgeous the man was.  Vivian sat up a little straighter.  Shoulders back, chin high and chest probably jiggling because her heart was beating so fast, she smiled and sent him a little wave. 

 

   “Vivian,” he greeted as he joined her. 

 

   “Zane.”

 

   “So you’re Mike’s little sister, hmm?” 

 

   “Ahh, so the dare worked.”  Vivian laughed.  “How many times did you consider bailing?” 

 

   “Bailing?  I’ll have you know I’m trained to confront conflicts of all shape and size.  I fearlessly face down explosives, disarm bombs and disable volatile chemicals. Sometimes all three before breakfast.”

 

   “Tell me more.”  Delighted, Vivian put on a wide eyed look of fascination, even adding a little eyelash flutter for good measure. 

 

   “I train with the best.  I’m one of the elite.  There’s no challenge devised that I won’t face.”  He leaned in, his smile almost hypnotic as he teased.  “Baby, I never bail.”

 

   “I can’t tell you how glad I am to hear that,” Vivian declared as the waiter brought Zane a beer and refilled her water. 

 

   “But, here’s the thing—” he started to say as soon as the waiter left.

 

   “No,” she moaned.  “Not the thing.” 

 

   There was only one thing of Zane’s that she wanted to hear about. 

 

   “Here’s the thing,” Zane continued, laughing.  “Some guys have rules about buds dating their sisters.  Sisters, cousins, moms.  Guys get weird thinking the women in their lives have sex.  They get even weirder when they know the guy putting the moves on that sex.”

 

   Lips pursed, Vivian propped her elbow on the table, rested her chin on her fist and fluttered her lashes. 

 

   “Aren’t you taking a leap there, assuming we’d definitely be having sex?”

 

   Zane blinked, looked horrified for one second, then shook his head.

 

   “I’m speaking generally, not specifically.”  Then he narrowed his eyes.  “Are you saying that you see this thing between us as platonic?”

 

   “Of course not.  I plan on having a great deal of sex with you,” she purred.  “A mind-blowing amount, as a matter of fact.” 

 

   “Mind blowing, hmm?”

 

   “Indeed.”  She reached out with her free hand to trail her fingers over the back of his knee.  Up his thigh, then back down again.  Oh, baby, even through denim, his muscles were rigidly impressive. 

 

   He clamped his hand down, locking hers down on his thigh. 

 

   “Only one thing.”

 

   “Only one?”

 

   “Only one.”  Zane entwined his fingers through hers.  “Your brother.” 

 

Oh, please,” she objected.  “Like you’re afraid of my brother?  The man wears argyle socks and loafers, for crying out loud.”

 

   Zane’s snicker escaped before he could stop it, then he shook his head.  “Mike’s footwear isn’t the issue. The fact that you’re his little sister is the issue.”

 

   Vivian debated for a handful of approaches. 

 

She could keep blathering about her brother.  That’d put an end to either of their interest in anything after a while.  Mike was like a sedative. 

 

She could offer him an easy out, a simple excuse to end the evening so he wasn’t in danger of violating his bro code.  Given there was a lifelong friendship involved, that’d be the nicest thing to do. 

 

   She could seduce Zane into forgetting about the bro code, which would ensure her one night of dreams-come-true-ecstasy.  

 

   Or she could do the unthinkable.

 

   Vivian took a deep breath, her eyes locked on Zane’s face.  He had such a sweet smile and sexy eyes.  And there were dreams at stake here, dammit. 

 

   So she reached into her bag to do the unthinkable. 

 

   “What are you doing?”

 

   She finished dialing her brother’s number.

 

   “Getting you a bro code clearance.”

 

   “Mike,” she said the minute he picked up.  “Let’s play what if. What if I have the hots for one of your friends?  What if this friend wants to make a move but he’s worried about upsetting you, so I want to make the move instead?  What would your feelings be on that?”

 

   “He’s afraid of me?” Mike laughed.  “Wish him luck.” 

 

   “Okey dokey,” she agreed, hanging up and giving Zane her most seductive smile. 

 

   Zane gave her a long look, the kind that made her want to squirm in her seat and breathe a little heavier. 

 

   Then he smiled. 

 

   “You know he thinks you’re referring to Lenny, don’t you?”

 

   Vivian ran her tongue over her lower lip and leaned into the table. Just enough to highlight her cleavage. She waited until Zane’s gaze returned to her eyes before giving a delicate little shrug. 

 

   “Can I help it if my brother is an idiot?” 



 

 

 

 

One Night with a Seal: All OutAll inOne Night with a Seal: All OutAll in by Tawny Weber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book contains two stories about twin brothers. The 2 authors who wrote them ties the stories together well. I enjoyed them both. These books are part of the Uniformly Hot series out by Harlequin Blaze.

All Out by Tawny Weber:

Zane literally runs in to Vivian. She has always wanted a chance with him. With all that is going on for both of them right now, will she be given a fair chance to fight for her future?

All In by Beth Andrews:

Xander is also home for his 10 year reunion. Like his twin, he has been busy away form home. He wants a chance to win Quinn over. The bet/challenge is a just an extra incentive to win.

I was impressed how these stories meshed so well. The characters were are all strong, yet all very down to earth. I loved that both stories had humor, heat, & heart. So worth it with 2 stories contained inside!

On Point (Out of Uniform) - Annabeth Albert

This is the 3rd book in the Out Of Uniform series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, to avoid spoilers, and really enjoy the series, I recommend reading in order.

 

Maddox & Ben have been best friends since their BUD(S) training.  They work together, live together, and so far it works for them.  Or does it?

 

Ben is starting to see that Maddox wanting a future with someone else is not going to work.  He never wanted forever before, but he cannot sit idly by and watch his best friend find happiness with someone else.  It's time to come clean.

 

I sincerely love this series!  I loved this book, and the way it handled this friends to lovers approach.  I could not put the book down and wanted more when I was done.  These characters are so rich and complex.  I cannot wait for the next book in the Out Of Uniform series.  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
