#CoverRevealSynopsis:
One break is all The Crow Brothers need and we’re about to get it.
Johnny Outlaw, rock legend and lead singer of The Resistance, is here to watch us play.
But he’s not the only familiar face in the crowd—killer little body, heart-shaped face, and
drop-dead gorgeous.
Hannah Nichols sitting at the bar makes it hard to concentrate, sparks already
reigniting. The beauty was never a groupie and tonight she’s not here to catch our show.
She came to drop a bomb. “You have a son.”
What is it about musicians? Why are they so damn sexy?
My heart was Jet Crow’s the moment he opened his sexy mouth and sang that first
song. One stolen night with that man would never be enough, but I’m not here to fall into
his bed. Again. I’m here to fight for custody of a son he’s never known.
There’s just one problem. Those sparks between us have become flames. If we’re not
careful we’re both going to get burned.

Review

To the world and even to Dave he may only see himself  and his alter ego Ridge just as an honorary Crow and Hannah’s best friend; but the brothers see it differently, he is family!  Ridge begins where Rivers left off, the promise of love and new beginnings.  Rivers and Stella are getting married, Meadow is coming home from her internship in London and Dave aka Ridge is waiting patiently waiting for his love Medow Soleil fellowes.  Both Dave and Medow have demons holding them back from happiness and as a reader your heart breaks for both of them but as the same time yelling at Medow for her to open her eyes and follow her heart, and for Dave to stop being so noble by agreeing to be only friends.   You will just have to read and find out if theses two take the advise of others and make a life together.

I have been paring Recipes and their stories together making platelist, for these rock stars and there spouses I decided to highlight their favorite cocktails when they get together as a family to unwind and share food.

“Drinks for All:

The successful women who support the Crow Brothers, and Resistance are not only best friends but like the guys they are family; so when the guys are out on tour they will get together for cocktails or wine night; so I thought I would share some of their favorite drinks.

Ridge LIVE Teaser 1
EXCERPT
Prologue
Dave “Ridge” Carson
Somewhere between El Paso and Tucson, I found my soul under the bright stars of the
Southwest.
Looking up, I drink her in. Meadow hates when I stare at her, but beauty like hers
is rare. Her chin dips down, and she kisses my cheek, trailing more toward my ear where
she whispers, “You feel so good inside me.”
“You have it all wrong. You make me feel good inside you.” I capture her lips on
the edge of a laugh and kiss her while she continues to rock on top of my lap.
The sound of our bodies, our skin slick against each other becomes part of the
hum of the desert outside the car. A night wind whistles through the cracked open
window as the temperatures continue to fall well after sunset. We couldn’t wait—not for
a hotel or a rest stop. When her hand dipped to my pants and she rubbed over me,
causing my body to react, I pulled over.
Time is our enemy. There’s never enough of it when I’m with her. Every time I’m
with her, I want to drain every ounce of life from the seconds, minutes, few short hours
we get to be with each other.
My gaze rolls over the bottom of her jaw as her head tilts back, her mouth open,
her bare breasts in front of me. I want to hold her still, hold her here, right the fuck here
on top of me.
I run my hands over her body as I make love to the woman who’s become an
addiction of mine. I breathe better, easier when I’m with her. The music of our bodies
together is the only melody I hear. She’s become my friend.
My lover.
My muse.
Lifting up, she eases back down and then lifts again, gripping my shoulders and
digging her nails into my skin. The pain is pleasure when doled out in provocative ways.
“Dave,” she whispers on the end of a purr. No other name has been uttered in pure
ecstasy like the way she says mine.
I hold her by the hips in the back seat of the SUV taking in the full view. “Hey,” I
sa
  • She comes back to me, her eyes open, her soul exposed in such a vulnerable way,
    setting my heart on fire. “Hey.” She smiles, and I hold her still again, wanting this to last
    forever while equally wanting to rush the release.
    A few sips of the wine we’ve been drinking straight from the bottle make her eyes
    sparkle. Caught between want and need, her smile is even until the corners, which curve
    up. It’s a smile that both hurts and heals my heart when it appears. “Don’t leave.”
    Leaning down, she kisses my forehead, my nose, my mouth. With her lips against
    mine, she whispers, “I have to go.”
    I’ve been careful about making plans with her for so long that the words feel
    foreign to me even now when this feels more intimate than any other time before. Every
    time with her is like this—better than the last. “I want you to stay.”
    I fell for the free-spirited beauty long before we left Austin. But like all who are
    meant to soar, she can’t be caged by antiquated notions of romance. Meadow Fellowes
    has been clear about what we are or ever could be—nothing serious. But sometimes,
    when she looks at me, I see more hidden in the emerald pools of her eyes. I understand
    the yearning. She says, “My flight is tomorrow night.”
    We’ve been so good at keeping it casual, but nothing serious means we’re fucking
    because we want to have sex. This isn’t fucking, just like we’re not casual, not to me.
    “Can you change it? Give us another week. Another day. Give us a chance.”
    Leaning down, she kisses me and then sits back up. With her palms on my chest,
    she holds her smile. “I am. By leaving.” Her eyes close, and she starts moving on top of
    me again.
    So I grip her a little tighter, holding her while I can. I meet every one of her
    pushes with a thrust of my own. As she comes back to me, the lids are half-mast, but her
    gaze is fixed on me. She whispers, “Tell me what you’re thinking.”
    “I’m thinking how good this feels. Just us. Alone. In the desert, making love,
    having sex, fucking. All of it. All of you. You feel so good to me. Maybe we should be
    more to each other.”
    “You’re more than you know,” she purrs softly and then leans back as if our
    connection is too much before she starts a slow gyrate. God, she feels amazing. A hand
    rubs over my chest, and this time, my eyes meet hers, coming back from the hazy edge of
    release. “We’re not those people.”
    “What people are those?”
    “The kind of people who make plans.”
    Our bodies glide together as I say, “We’ve made plans before.”
    “Spur-of-the-moment plans. Those don’t count.”
    “They count.” They fucking count. I want to argue, but my mind clouds as our
    bodies move of their own volition. My eyes dip closed, and I swim in the moment,
    buried deep inside her.
    We fall, tipping over that line that keeps us safe and the one that will end us—
    heart, body, and soul. It’s where I prefer to be with her. If only we could stay in this
    place longer than it takes for our breathing to recover.
    My heart calms, and my breathing steadies. Meadow slides down with me still
    inside her and rests her head on my shoulder. Her fingers toy with the hairs on my chest
    before a kiss is placed on my neck. “Six months,” she says. “I’ll be back in six months.”
  • I tighten my arms around her. I don’t care that my body’s too big for this back
    seat or that we’re covered in sweat. All that matters is that I have her in my arms for a
    short time, and I intend to savor every second until she boards that plane

Books and Food have bigger “Connection” then you think……

I come to you today to celebrate and share My good friend Morgan Locklear Book release for “Connection”   I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to read and review Connection before its release date October 1, 2018.  I will be sharing with you my review of the amazing story, where you can get your own copy so you can ride along with Olivia and Patrick; plus my thoughts how I feel food and books connect together.

Reading for a shy little girl was a life saver, the stories would transport you to far away places and sometimes you would become apart of the stories.   I would some times get teased in school because of my love of reading; but I didn’t let it bother me because I knew the magic and the power of a good story.    An open book for me was like going to the movies; my imagination would take me to far away places  and I would be introduced to new cultures, traditions.  Reading gave me  permission to dream and think outside of the box.

Books are great travel guilds, they also can introduce you to music, and most of all food.  Being a new comer to this very welcoming community of  Authors, I notice they have music play list; and being a chef/foodie.  I thought why not a food list that show cases what the characters are enjoying in the story; plus provide recipe so you the reader can try to enjoy something new or revisit old favorites.

Today I will be sharing a few of Olivia’s and Sam’s favorites: Fried egg, bacon Sandwich on Cinnamon Toast, and Baked Ziti with Garlic bread.   At a later date if you would like I will continue highlighting the following dishes that are also shared  in the book;  Garlic chicken with spinach salad,  Food Truck Chicken and Beef Burritos, Tacos, Steaks and Burgers the size of frisbees.

Connection Teaser #1

My Review:  OMG as a reader you are in for a real paranormal treat and by the end of the story you will asking yourself what just happened and let’s do this again. Morgan is an incredible story-teller, I don’t want to spoil the adventure for anyone, but I can tell you that from the first sentence you are going to be by Olivia’s side and be apart of the experience. I found myself laughing, crying, you will feel heart ache and unconditional love and Joy! I’ve never been to New York City, it’s been on my bucket list; but the picture Morgan created with his words I feel like NYC & I are old friends. I want to thank Morgan and Jenn for asking me to be apart of Locklear books review team. I’m grateful for are friendship and to celebrate their successes. Congratulations Morgan for me you hit it out of the park & I can hardly wait for October 1st when everyone gets to experience the light. Cheers my friend! Don’t forget to seek out other works by Morgan & Jennifer Locklear.

Recipe’s by Karen Komarinski, cc

Breakfast of Champions: Fried Eggs, Bacon on Cinnamon Toast.  ” I have little story from my childhood with Cinnamon toast; we had a glass bear shaker that held a combination of Sugar and Cinnamon always ready for our toast.  My mom would bake 12 loaves of bread every monday and we had homemade butter to spread on.   To make the perfect Cinnamon toast is much easier today with toaster ovens, but as kids we were very hard on the slotted toaster, we would  toast the bread, spread with butter and sprinkle it with that magical concoction of sugar and cinnamon then put back in for a second toast. (This all came to an end when my dad figured out why the toaster kept shorting out 😉  ingredients thick cut bacon ( I personally use organic no nitrate  bacon)  6 Eggs a good thick white bread or cinnamon bread.

Autumn-French-Toast-Egg-Sandwich-7 I envision Sams  Recipe as such; Cook one Pack of  started in a cold pan cooking over medium heat cooking until crispy, remove place on paper towel, four pieces of cinnamon toast go down to be toasted while six eggs are placed in the pan the bacon was cooked in along with the bacon grease.  Toast is buttered and then its all put together and enjoy.

Comfort food does not have to take all day to make, it can be good and quick without sacrificing taste and flavor.  I will make my point with the next recipe for baked Ziti.   Lets face it two young girls are going to use Jared sauce, nothing wrong with this at all, just do yourself a favors and find a good quality Jarred sauce that uses San Marzano organic tomatoes and salt; if you can’t pronounce the ingredients walk away.

Baked Ziti the meal that is a big hug with a side of  love that keeps on giving:

ziti-bake-56a8c3685f9b58b7d0f4e75a

Ingredients: 16 oz pk of Ziti pasta cooked  Al dente, 24 oz. whole milk ricotta, 1/2 lb of the following cheese shredded, Mozzarella and provolone, 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese, 32 oz. of homemade sauce or your favorite jarred sauce. 1 large yellow onion minced.  1 lb. Italian Sausage, 2 cloves of minced garlic 1 tablespoon fresh basil, oregano, (note: cut herbs in half if using dried) 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.   Putting it all together:  In a medium pot or large skillet over medium heat add Olive Oil and add in minced onions once translucent add sausage cook until browned and break up into small pieces now add garlic sauce, parmesan cheese stir;  lower heat and simmer:  while you cook your pasta (Al dente) according to package direction.  One thing to remember you want to salt your pasta water like the sea.  You will need a 9×13 baking dish brushed with olive oil set aside,  In a large mixing bowl add Ricotta cheese mix with 2 ladles of sauce,  add cooked pasta 1/2 of the shredded , sauce mix together  (make sure you hold back enough sauce to top the pasta)  pour pasta into your prepared baking dish top with remaining sauce, cover tightly with foil place in 350 degree oven bake for 20 minutes, remove foil top with the remaining cheese sprinkle with an additional teaspoon of basil return to oven bake and additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling; remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

 Not your average Garlic Toast:

 

Cheesy-Garlic-Bread-6 This garlic toast recipe was passed on to me by a very famous Executive chef that cooked for The New York high society and several President’s. You can find the full story on my blog “post called Words of Wisdom.”   You will need on loaf of Italian bread split in half; if you prefer you can use a french baguette.  Take one cup of your favorite mayonnaise (not miracle whip)  to that you are going to add 2 cloves of crushed garlic, 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese and 1/2 cup Parmesan, pinch of crack black pepper.  Spread mixture evenly on both half of the bread of your choosing, place on a foil lined baking sheet and put under the broiler until it is brown and bubbly, keep a close eye on it because it goes quickly.   For a deep garlic flavor; cut a clove of garlic and rub the cut end over your bread and then spread on your cheese mixture & broil.

Thank you I hope you give the recipes a try and enjoy them; but most of all I hope you follow the links above and get yourself a copy of “Connections” by Morgan Locklear and take a ride of your life.

Thank you Morgan for giving the green light, thank  you Jenn for thinking it was a good Idea.  Hope you both enjoyed my ramblings and recipes.

Thank you to everyone who has stopped by and to my followers.

Cheers Karen (kk)

AUTHOR BIO

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

L.B. Dunbar loves the sweeter things in life: cookies, Coca-Cola, and romance. Her reading journey began with a deep love of fairy tales, medieval knights, Regency debauchery, and alpha males. She loves a deep belly laugh and a strong hug. Occasionally, she has the energy of a Jack Russell terrier. Accused—yes, that’s the correct word—of having an overactive imagination, to her benefit, such an imagination works well. Author of over two dozen novels, she’s created sweet, small town worlds; rock star mayhem; MMA chaos; sexy rom-coms for the over 40; and intrigue on an island of redemption. In addition, she is earning a title as the “myth and legend lady” for her modernizations of mythology as elda lore. Her other duties in life include mother to four children and wife to the one and only.

EXCERPT #1

Stella Lilith used to have an adventurous side, but I think it’s been a while since she broke a few rules. “Will you climb out first?”

There’s my girl. “Yep.” I press down on the sink, hoping it doesn’t fall off the wall. It looks old, so I’m not sure it can hold my weight. But it’s getting louder in the hall, so I climb up, grabbing an exposed pipe above the window, and maneuver my legs through the opening. Good thing we’re on the ground level. Pushing off, I land on my feet in the alley and turn around. “Stella?”

She peeks out and by the way her lips are twisted and her eyes are looking at the cement, she’s nervous. “I don’t want to fall.”

“I’d never let you. Not to the ground anyhow.”

For a second, she looks confused, but her brow relaxes and a small smile appears. “You’ll catch me?”

“Every time.”

She disappears, and I can hear her climbing onto the sink. Her legs slide out the window until her ass rests on the metal sill. “Ready for me, Rivers?”

“All my life.”

“For real,” she says, her nerves causing a slight shake to her tone. “You’re going to catch me, right?”

“Always.” I take her by the ass, and say, “Put your legs over my shoulders.”

“What? No.”

“Yes. I’ve got you. Then all I have to do is back up as you slip out.”

“I’m not as light as I used to be. Are you sure you can handle me?”

I work my way under her so her legs are over my shoulders. “Don’t worry about me, baby. I can handle you all right.”

Her thighs squeeze my neck. I like to think it was the name I slipped in there, but it’s probably because she’s anxious to do this. She slips out a little more, and our eyes meet. “You’re sure you’re ready?”

“All you have to do is let go. I have you.”

Releasing the pipe, she ducks her head to the side while I support her back with my hands, holding her until she clears the glass. Helping her upright, my face is against the jeans that cover her vagina and she’s squeezing my head with her legs so tight I don’t know if I’m going to live. What a sweet fucking way to die.

ABOUT S.L. SCOTT

Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She’s obsessed with epic romances and loves a good plot twist. Her favorite color is blue, but she likens it more toward the sky than the emotion. Her home is filled with the welcoming symbol of the pineapple and finds surfing a challenge though she likes to think she’s a pro.

Midge Everette.

I’m forty-one today.

It’s my birthday,

And I’m crying over burnt toast.

That’s not some euphemism.

Literally, I’m sobbing over stupid bread,

so I call a crisis center.

I just need someone to talk to about life.

Only I recognize the smoky voice of the man on the line.

In the name of all things, don’t let it be…

Hank Paige.

As a former rock star,

I once had it all.

Fame. Fortune. Females.

Except for the one thing I wanted most.

Now, I fix cars and restore other people’s dreams.

I just want to be somebody’s someone.

And there’s a certain woman with captivating eyes,

I want to fulfill my dreams.

For the love of all things, please let it be her…

In the midst of questioning everything,

could love be the resolution to a midlife crisis?

If you loved Tommy Carrigan in After Care meet his best friend and former drummer, Hank, as he discovers romance in his forties.

Book 2 of the silver fox, former rock stars can be read as a standalone.
