Girl Crush is an erotic female romance novella that brings to light that one time… The one time you found yourself questioning your so-called sexuality, potentially risking your friendship. What if the feelings aren’t reciprocated? Confusion and pain brings them closer together, feeding from one another’s strengths and thrusting them into each other’s arms.
Visions of last night’s interlude invaded my thoughts, warmed me. My hopes were that this wasn’t
A one-time deal. I got out of bed sliding my bath robe on and made my way to the kitchen to find Gemma cooking breakfast wearing nothing more than an apron.
I slid my arms around her tiny waist, kissing the back of her neck while snagging a piece of bacon off the plate in front of her.
“Good Morning Baby Girl,” I muttered in her ear.
“In case I forgot to tell you last night, I love it when you call me that”
I squeezed her, “I’m glad because you’ll b hearing it a lot more.” I know the assumption that this was only the beginning may have been pushing it, but I knew that there is no way I was going to let her go. I would do everything I could to make her mine, to show her how wonderful life can be with the right person. To never let her think that she wasn’t worth her weight in gold.

💕•.¸¸¸.•*´)BATTERED AND BRUISED BUT NOT BROKEN💕•.¸¸¸.•*´)
(This was co-written with Piper Kay)
Battered & bruised, but not broken is an erotic, male/male, gay romance novel. It’s the culmination of two lost souls finding what they didn’t know they were looking for. Hunter is an ex-con, always in the wrong place at the worst times which is how he landed in prison. He’s looking to start anew when in walks Elliott. Timid and sheltered Elliott has his life in order. Or so he thinks, that is until Hunter introduces him to a whole new world. Both are battling past demons, but what happens when their worlds collide?
Where in the hell did I get that prissy, little take charge, bitch attitude from? That’s so not like me, I’m actually quite the opposite. Yet every time I’m around Hunter I turn into a fucking queen. But the way he freaked when I told him I was a virgin sent me into fight or flight mode and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let him or his ‘my shit don’t stink’ attitude get the best of me. Tell me I can come and go as I please, it’s like ‘no fucking shit I can’, but right now, all I want to do is lose my virginity to this cocky man. Why him? I honestly don’t know, but twenty-three years of waiting can make a guy do crazy shit.
I know he wants me, it’s written all over his smug face. I see him grin when he thinks I’m looking the other direction. There’s a reason our paths keep crossing, call it karma, call it kismet, hell, call it whatever the fuck you want, but I know damn good and well there’s a reason for it. But last night, I saw a glimpse of his gentle side— the side that calls me to him when I shivered while he was undressing me.
As I lay here watching him sleep, I see so much more in him than he does. I see the gentler, need to be loved side that he desperately tries to hide behind his tattooed bad boy façade. But what makes him tick? Baggage he claims, fuck dude, we all have baggage. Try getting past a homophobic father who damn near beats you to death when he finds out you’re gay. Talk about baggage, I never let anyone in after that. Fuck, it’d been years before I even tried to so much as kiss anyone after that. Hook-ups were my chosen vice in college, but I never let anyone in. And lo and behold what happens the first time I do? I get my dick sucked by the most amazing man I’ve ever met. The same man laying here beside me sleeping. The same man who’s quickly winning my heart.
I was so nervous last night when he undressed me, so afraid he’d reject me in my vulnerable state of nakedness. My body still bears the physical scars from my father’s abuse which I thought would turn him off. But he looked right past them as though they didn’t exist. And when he called me baby, I lost it. A term of endearment from a self-proclaimed bad boy. That alone shows the depths of his humanity. I know the real Hunter’s in there, now all I need to do is prove to him that I won’t hurt him because clearly, something in his past has seriously fucked him up.

Two men, one watch… When Alex and Charlie met, they instantly clicked. Throughout the years, their bond grew from friends, to lovers. But when Charlie's father passes away something inside him changes. Alex feared their relationship was over and knew his heart would never survive. Things spiral out of control as Charlie’s erratic behavior leads Alex to think the worst. During an intense argument, they’re transported back in time. When Charlie comes to, Alex isn’t by his side. Frantically, he searches for him. But when he finds him, he’s surprised Alex doesn’t remember who he is. Charlie must make Alex fall in love with him again. But what happens if he doesn’t? Will this be the end of their relationship, or will it be game over for them both?
“I’m sorry Alex, I never meant to hurt you. I should’ve told you what I was doing, but it took me by surprise and once it happened, I couldn’t help but follow it.” “What in the fuck are you talking about, Charlie?” I dropped my hands to my knees and looked over at him. He was twisting the pocket watch in his hands again. He stood and resumed pacing. “This,” he said, pointing to the pocket watch. “This is the key to all my father accomplished. His leads, his travels, his journals – they all revolve around this watch.” “You’re not making any sense.” I walked over to him and took his hands in mine. “Look at you, Charlie,” I said, eyeing him up and down. “When’s the last time you’ve showered? Eaten? Even looked in the mirror?” He glanced across the room to the mirror hanging above the fireplace, catching a glimpse of his sunken cheeks. His hands touched his face, when the shock registered, he began to cry. “Now I understand what happened to my father.” “What do you mean?” He held up the watch. “This Alex. This is the source of information, it’s also the cause of his death.” I reached for the watch dangling between his fingers, he pulled it back and I grabbed at it. Our hands met, as the dial on top turned and the pin depressed. He tried to pull the watch back screeching, “No!” The distance between us increased, and our living room faded away

INTERVIEW WITH TL TRAVIS on her new series SOCIAL SINNERS
Can you share with us a typical day in the life of TL Travis?
A: Hmm, wake up. Have coffee, answer all of Piper Kay’s PM’s 😊. Hop on the computer and check my Amazon rankings then play for far too long on Facebook. Oh yeah, at some point I actually write.
What inspired you to write the Social Sinners Series?
A: I love MM Rockstar romances and have always wanted to write one. When I came across the picture of the cover model Cody Criswell, it all fell into place for me. I bought the pic and immediately started writing.
How many books in the series?
Do you have release dates for the other books yet?
Book 1 – Behind the lights (MM) 6/9/18 Book 2 – In the shadows (MM) 8/17/18 Book 3 – A heart divided (MMM) 3/19/19 Book 4 – Beyond the curtain (MM) 6/18/19 Book 5 – After the final curtain (MM/MMM) 8/13/19
Is there a character in this series you feel especially connected to? Why?
A: Stoli. He’s the back bone for his band brothers, but sometimes he needs a shoulder to lean on too.
In your opinion what is the best thing about this series for you?
A: Reliving the concerts I’ve been too. I love seeing my favorite bands play live plus I’m having a blast writing my own songs for this series.
Who is the cute model on the cover of Behind The Lights?
A: That is Cody Criswell, the guitarist for the band Artifas.
Will the same model be on all of the covers?
A: No, books 1 and 5 are Cody Criswell. Book 2 is Matt Maximus Mueller, book 3 is Cody’s band mate Anthony Mattox and book 4 is Johnny Kane.
I see you have a song which was made for the book, how did this come about?
A: Cody and I got to talking one day and he told me he does song writing/singing/producing on the side. I thought that would be a killer trifecta for the series, so we struck a deal and he wrote, produced and sung In My Heart for the Social Sinners series.
Anthony Mattox produced the trailer for that song and I was so pleased with his work that I signed on to have him do one for each of the books. I gave him free reign to do what he wished with book 3 since he’s on the cover. It’s ironic considering that book is about the bass player in Social Sinners and he’s the bass player for Artifas.
TL Travis is proud to present a peek at the first book BEHIND THE LIGHTS from her brand new series SOCIAL SINNERS which is now available on pre-order and has already hit the number one spot on smarturl.it/SocialSinners1 There will also be an 🍾🎉EVENT/PARTY🍾🎉 9th June starting noon PST to celebrate the Release. TL Travis has revealed the cover in the Event link https://www.facebook.com/RAMPAGroup/posts/2222356034700569, where she introduced a song written and performed by the gorgeous cover model Cody Criswell along with a video made by Anthony Mattox. As you'll remember, Anthony is Cody’s bandmate and the bass player in Artifas and is the cover model on book 3 in the series.
Joey Hayes, Ricky “Stoli” Branson, Mickey Payne and Ethan “Diamond” Taylor are the members of the metal band Social Sinners. They’re a tight-knit group. They fight like brothers, they love like brothers, they even share like brothers. When one of them hurts, they all hurt even when it comes to matters of the heart. When Joey’s first boyfriend, Lucas Shane, comes into the picture everything changes taking Joey spiralling down a dark path. Will the band be putting out a call for a new lead singer? Or will Stoli be able to save the heart that stole his?
“Hey guys,” Stoli spoke up. “What do you think about entering our band in the talent show?” “Stoli, we don’t even have a name for our band yet,” I reminded him. Mickey laughed. “That Stoli story still cracks me up.” Stoli threw a french fry at him. At one of our band practices, I told them the infamous Stoli vodka story and the name stuck with them as it had with me. I tried not to let it slip in front of our folks because as far as I knew, my dad still had no idea what had happened, and I planned on taking that incident to the grave. “You think the Stoli story’s funny, Diamond?” He raised a brow in challenge. “I proudly sport this bad boy,” he grabbed his crotch, which was usually hard. Hence the nickname Diamond as in hard enough to cut Diamonds. “What about Socially Distraught?” “Nah, sounds like we’re in need of therapy,” Stoli argued. “What about Socially Inept?” Mickey asked. “That sounds like we sit around licking windows all day.” They laughed when I pointed out that connection. “Well, it seems we’re stuck on using some form of the word social here. So how about Social Sinners?” Stoli beamed at his suggestion. “Cool,” Diamond agreed. “Yeah.” Mickey liked it too. “Perfect,” I added. And so, Social Sinners was born.
