Here's my candidate for the week:

Teaching Roman by Sophia Bleu
Publisher: September 2013
Series: Good Girls Don't, 2
Genre: New Adult Contemporary

Jessica Stone has her life in perfect order until her perfectly boring boyfriend Brett puts things in perspective. So when she receives a call to action from her heartbroken best friend Cassie, she ditches her plans for Winter Break in gloomy Olympic Falls and sets off to Mexico for some fun in the sun.

Determined to use her oceanview to prep for her MCATS, she doesn't plan to run into anyone from Olympic State, least of all the cute communications prof she's been crushing on for a year. When he unexpectedly saves the day, the two are thrown together in a distinctly extracurricular activity.

Roman Markson doesn’t expect to run into anyone he knows from Olympic Falls while visiting his family in Puerto Vallarta, especially not a former student. Although Jess Stone has a way of catching men’s attention, a relationship with her is strictly off-limits. However, the rules feel less strict in Mexico, so they agree to a plan: one week in paradise and nothing more.

But avoiding each other back on campus is harder than they anticipated, especially when they can’t stay away from one another. Neither is sure what they have to learn—and lose—before life teaches them a lesson they’ll never forget.

Kame's Pick:

Levi's Ultimatum by Eliza Gayle
Publisher: Gypsy Ink Books (July 9, 2013) 
Series: Purgatory Masters, 2
Genre: Contemporary (Erotica)

Levi’s Ultimatum is book 2 in the Purgatory Masters series, Book 1 is Tucker’s Fall and is available now.

In search of someplace to belong…

Levi Hawkins was a typical fun loving, hard partying college student with his whole life in front of him — until one tragic night ripped his world apart and left him adrift with no home or family to return to. After a soul crushing stint in Afghanistan, he spent a decade wandering the globe searching for something or someone to make him whole again. Weary of regret and consumed by loneliness, he puts his heart on the line and turns to the only people still connected to him by blood.

He found an obsession…

A chance encounter at a lakeside cafĂ© puts single mother Tori Ford directly in Levi’s path and he’s ready to stake a claim. She wants to keep her life simple. Work hard, raise her daughter, save some money and one day open the pie shop she’s always dreamed of. She doesn’t need complicated and she certainly doesn’t need a wickedly hot Dominant to take control of her future. Except when he touches her she yearns for the pleasure and passion of submission. But Tori can’t take another heartbreak and she can never trust Levi with her heart or her daughter if he won’t open up about the darkness slowly consuming him.

I don't know why I am loving darker themed covers more....thanks for letting me join in - this is a fun search each week!

Kame: I love the covers in Eliza Gayle Purgatory Masters series. I read the first in this series and could not connect with the characters but will still read book 2 because I am curious as to what is going on with the other characters and hoping I will connect with them. I loved her writing style (expect for her usuage of "Slut") and characters in Midnight Playground.

Danielle: I agree I love the pose sexy and fun. Of course the Tatt is yummy. Will have to check it out.

Have a beautiful SundayMy L4C
