About ALL PLAYED OUT:
First person in her family to go to college? CHECK.
Straight A’s? CHECK.
On track to graduate early? CHECK.
Social life? …..yeah, about that….
With just a few weeks until she graduates, Antonella DeLuca’s beginning to worry that maybe she hasn’t had the full college experience. (Okay… Scratch that. She knows she hasn’t had the full college experience).
So Nell does what a smart, dedicated girl like herself does best. She makes a “to do” list of normal college activities.
Item #1? Hook up with a jock.
Rusk University wide receiver Mateo Torres practically wrote the playbook for normal college living. When he’s not on the field, he excels at partying, girls, and more partying. As long as he keeps things light and easy, it’s impossible to get hurt… again. But something about the quiet, shy, sexy-as-hell Nell gets under his skin, and when he learns about her list, he makes it his mission to help her complete it.
Torres is the definition of confident (And sexy. And wild), and he opens up a side of Nell that she’s never known. But as they begin to check off each crazy, exciting, normal item, Nell finds that her frivolous list leads to something more serious than she bargained for. And while Torres is used to taking risks on the field, he has to decide if he’s willing to take the chance when it’s more than just a game.
Together they will have to decide if what they have is just part of the experiment or a chance at something real.
And don’t miss the first two books in the Rusk University Series…

Book Title: Breathe Me (A Me Novel)
Author: Jeri Williams
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions
This book was entertaining for its sexual and steamy content, but for substance it fell flat.
His breathing.My heart.His breathing.My heart.
I tried to step back again, and found myself up against the side of the building, the coldness of it hitting my back. Dammit!
“Harley,” he moved his thumb and caressed my bottom lip. His eyes fell to my mouth and he licked his lips, and that was it. I got goose bumps all over, as I flattened my back against the wall I looked into his eyes, now a gun metal color and watched as he searched my face. He shouldn’t be allowed to look at a woman like this.
“What are you hiding?” Those words caused my slamming heart to stop. How could he know I was hiding, when not even Ember knew? I was trying to tell myself he didn’t, it was just a ploy for someone like him to get what he wanted. But deep down, I knew he knew.
“I…I…I don’t know what…”
He took a deep breath and closed the already small gap between our bodies. I put my hands up to stop him, and came into contact with his rock hard abdomen. Shit, those couldn’t be real. I wanted to move my hand further and feel what I knew would be a six pack, if not eight. That was the wrong thing to touch if I wanted to stop him.
“Just a taste…” His grip on my face tightened slightly as he pulled me toward his lips, the heat coming off him felt amazing, it instantly made my vaginal walls tighten and moister to dampen my panties. I had been waiting 23 years for this kiss, to feel lips on mine. I moved my hands to his side and gripped the sides of his shirt blazingly pulling him closer, I wanted this, I didn’t care that he was a stranger, a customer and that I didn’t even know his name. I. Was. Ready.
He must have taken my actions as a go-ahead and he slowly leaned down bringing our mouths closer. I closed my eyes because that’s what they did in all my books and waited for his lips to touch mine.
“Harley, is that you?” A voice I knew and hated right now called out.
Seriously?! Great fucking timing Ember. I heard him make the sexiest noise I have ever heard as he braced his hand against the wall and leaned down, his lips brushing my ear.
“I smell you. Fuck, you smell amazing.” His voice came out leathery.
If I wasn’t leaning against a wall, I would have fainted epically right there. I was one hundred and thirty-five percent sure he wasn’t talking about my deodorant and it made my panties moisten more.

What Happens Abroad
“Good morning, sleeping beauty!” A familiar voice cut across the street, and I winced. Carson sauntered over to me, holding a brown paper bag in one hand and a Styrofoam cup in the other.
I blinked at him, confused. “What are you doing here?”
“You mentioned where you were staying last night.”
I frowned, trying to remember. “I did?”
He slapped his hand to his chest as if I’d wounded him. “That’s the kind of welcome I get? A few dances and the lady doesn’t even remember me!”
I giggled, but pain shot through my head, and I winced.
Carson handed me the cup and the bag. “I thought you might need some hangover first-aid. You do like coffee, right?”
I nodded, taking the cup. “Actually, I like tea better, but coffee’s okay.”
Carson laughed. “Here I was trying to please your American sensibilities.” He shook his head ruefully. “If you want tea, we’ll find tea for you. That’s one thing we never run short of in London.”
I chuckled, taking a cautious sip. It was warm, but not too hot, and I took another swallow of the coffee. “What’s in the bag?”
“Hangover cure. I told you.”
I peeked inside. “A croissant?”
“Not just any croissant. It’s a chocolate croissant; you’ll love it.”
I took a tentative bite of the flaky pastry, and then I grinned up at Carson. “Oh my God. This is so good.”
He laughed. “I thought you’d like it. At least I was right about half the breakfast.”
“The coffee’s good, too.” I took another sip to prove my point.
“That’s good.” He draped an arm over my shoulder and pulled me close. We started to walk, and I hurried to finish the food. Taking the aspirin out of my bag, I popped a pill in my mouth and washed it down with coffee. Carson grinned at me. “Feeling better?”
I nodded, surprised that my head had calmed down. “Yeah. I thought it was a migraine.”
“Just a hangover. We drank a lot last night.”
I flushed, remembering the feeling of his hands running all over me on the dance floor. “It was fun.”
“It was more than fun.” His eyes sparkled, and his fingers began tracing lazy circles on my shoulder.
I shivered in delight. “So,” I said, trying to keep the quiver out of my voice, “what did you want to do today?”
His eyes danced wickedly. “Well”—he lowered his face to mine—“there are a few things I’ve had in mind,” he whispered, close enough that I could feel the vibration of his words against my skin. Hangover forgotten, I shut my eyes and parted my lips. After a moment, I felt him exhale against my mouth, and then his lips were pressed to mine.
The kiss was sweet and deep, and my body felt electric. God, so this is what I’d been missing all those years? I pressed my lips to his hungrily, but then he pulled back gently and smiled.
