Summary

My parents were conmen and I was their tool. I learned how to cheat, connive, and charm my way out of any circumstance. But now I’m respectable...kind of. Yeah, my life is still a lie, but that’s because I have no choice. My best friend, who’s also my boss, needs me to lie to keep our billion-dollar charity going. It’s complicated.
But all the lies are about to end. I just have to finish one final task...taking over a brewery. Easy, right?
Not so much. Because that brewery is part of a custody battle between mother and daughter. The mother owns it. The daughter thinks it should be hers. I’m caught in the middle. Not normally a bad place to be when it comes to two feisty women.
But I’m falling for the daughter and when my lies come to light, everything is going to unravel. And then my future with the brewery and the girl will be shot to hell.
My boss probably won’t be too happy with me either...

Review

An eye-catching--okay, a hot--cover. Characters who are drawn together--okay, more heat. And a captivating story. Sometimes the best books are the ones that offer an escape. What makes them even better is when the characters have depth and the story pulls you in. These aren't just two people who lust after one another. Instead, they each are battling a past that makes them guarded. 

If you love an escape that you can connect with a deeper level, pick up a copy of Deliciously Smooth and fall in love.

About Cursed Hearts

One kiss can change lives.

Sixteen-year-old Kelsie Martin wants every girl’s dream—to date and fall in love with the perfect guy. There’s a few things standing in her way. Surging powers that cause her to kill every boy she kisses, and the fact that succubi aren’t supposed to fall in love. She reluctantly accepts her calamitous fate when a new guy, Victor Duquette, enters her life. He’s hot and they have similar interests. Could Victor be the one Kelsie’s been waiting for? One forbidden kiss resurrects a century old curse—drastically changing her life and twisting her idea of happily ever after.

Review

Vampires. My fascination with them first drew me to paranormal books many years ago, but the more I read, the more I wanted a unique spin. And I'm thrilled to say Cursed Hearts offers that. Succubi were a new paranormal creature to me, and I found myself fascinated. After all, a creature who lives off of passion but is cursed to be without love. 

Add to that a man who believes himself without a soul, and you have a classic paranormal Romeo & Juliet--such potential for tragedy and broken hearts. But you'll have to read it to find out the ending. No spoilers here.

As if they did not face enough, a succubi-vampire union comes with its own curse. Only a once-in-a-lifetime love would be worth facing all of these obstacles. 

I highly recommend you pick up your copy today.

About the Author

SF Benson, a native of Michigan, resides in Georgia with her husband, a human daughter, and a couple of miniature fur kids (two female short-haired guinea pigs). At one time, she wrangled a household which included three Samoyeds, saltwater fish, a hamster, and three guinea pigs. When she’s not busy playing Doctor Doolittle, she enjoys answering the question “what if” by writing mostly Dystopian/science fiction and paranormal stories for young adults and new adults. And if a spare moment happens, she morphs into a bookworm and devours a few books simultaneously.
