Here's my candidate for the week:

In Your Corner by Sarah Castille 
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca (July 1, 2014)
Series: Redemption, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance

"You have to go. I won't be able to control myself. I've wanted you so bad for so long and after I've been in the cage...I can't think straight." He gives a guttural groan and his fist clenches on my hip.

Primitive. Primal. His need speaks to me. I tighten my grip on his neck and rock up to kiss him. He takes over. His kiss is hard and demanding.

"Mine." His voice is raw, savage and for a moment I truly believe he may lose control.

He rules in the ring

Two years ago, Jake and Amanda were going hot and heavy. But when Jake wanted more, Amanda walked away. Jake immersed himself in mixed martial arts, living life on the edge. But that didn't dull the pain of Amanda's rejection-until a chance encounter throws them together.

A high-powered lawyer, Amanda was a no-strings-attached kind of girl. But two years after her breakup with Jake, she still hasn't found anyone who gets her heart pumping the way he did. And then he shows up in her boardroom, hot as sin and needing help...

But can he rule her heart?

Jake is darker, sexier, and impossible to resist. As their chemistry builds, Amanda's not sure if she can stay in control, or if she's finally willing to let him claim her body and soul.

Kame's Pick

No Distance Left to Run by L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov
Publisher: Samhain Publishing, Ltd. (May 13, 2014)
Series: Distance Between Us, 4
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance

The night before Chris and his best friend Joshua were sent thousands of miles apart on their respective Mormon missions, they finally gave in to their mutual desire. Left trying to make sense of what happened, Chris’s already shaky faith crumbled altogether a year later when Joshua suddenly died.

Inconsolable, ostracized by his family and the only community he’d ever known, Chris found his way on his own. Now he’s going to school and loves his job as a bartender at Wilde’s. Years after Joshua’s death, he’s finally moving on. 

Then a familiar face rocks his world. Joshua isn’t dead. He’s back in Seattle to make peace with his dying father, with a new name, a new accent…and old feelings for Chris that are alive and well.

Forgiveness doesn’t come easy for anyone, but just as Chris is accepting that the man he loves isn’t going to run away this time, their families threaten to pull them apart all over again…

Warning: Contains two lost boys who need to make up for a hell of a lot of lost time. There’s also a military uniform, a tuxedo, and a knife. In the same scene. And yes, it’s that kind of scene.

Hey TBQ, your cover guy looks a little tense. I think he might enjoy a massage. LOL. You know I'm really tired. However, I'm kind of drooling over your cover.

The_Book_Queen said...

Hehe. My mind went in the gutter with "back shot". Not sure why, must be one of those nights where everything sounds dirtier than it is . . . :)

LOL Hm, would I do that intentionally? 'Massive heart attacks occur around the world as women drool over a double-whammy L4C this weekend . . . " :D
