New Release – Playing Hard to Get by Monica Murphy

Playing Hard to Get by Monica Murphy is now live!

Knox Maguire is the king of our college campus.

Star offensive tight end on the football team.

He is the complete opposite of me in every way.

I’m quiet. He’s loud.

I’m shy. He’s definitely not.

Everyone loves him. No one knows me.

Fresh out of a breakup, I don’t really trust him, and why should I? Knox is the ultimate player. When I become his English tutor, I tell myself we need to keep things between us strictly business. Watching my mother deal with my ex-athlete father long, long ago taught me to stay far away from that type of man.

Yet Knox is impossible to resist. Next thing I know, we’re getting hot and heavy in the library—and that was never part of the plan. When Knox admits he can’t stop thinking about me, I have a realization.

I can’t stop thinking about him either.

Instead of keeping my distance, I pull him in closer. Until somehow, we’re spending all of our time together and I find myself falling for Knox. Hard.

Will this actually work between us? Or am I getting played?

Review – Playing Hard to Get by Monica Murphy

Playing Hard to Get
(Standalone)

Publication Date: December 1, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Sports/Opposites Attract Romance

Author: Monica Murphy

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Sweet, dirty, and completely enchanting. Knox and Joanna are pure magic on the page and I couldn’t get enough!

For a man who is labeled a player on campus, which he is – and he will admit it, Knox is one of the sweetest, most endearing, and openly honest book boyfriends you will run across. He’s currently in his senior year of college, feeling the pressure of the upcoming draft, his class schedule, fitting in PT, and now he needs to fit in a tutor for a class he’s struggling with. On the plus side, the tutor he hires is the girl he can’t stop thinking about, Joanna, or his Jo Jo.

Joanna is quiet, recovering from a recent breakup, and really, really doesn’t like football. When Knox Maguire keeps popping up in her life, he isn’t her type at all, not that he isn’t pretty eye candy, but aside from that, he is not the kind of man she would date. However, his honesty and his persistence works its way under her skin and the temptation of Knox breaks down every single barrier she originally threw up.

These two are more than chemistry, they are pure magic. Their relationship grew without drama and with tons of heart behind it. Playing Hard to Get is one of those feel good books that make you swoon and sigh with big heart eye emojis all over it!!

Excerpt:

“I can’t lose you like that again, wife.”

The admission leaves me feeling vulnerable and I swallow down the rest of the words I want to say to her.

Like how much she means to me. More than anyone else in the world.

We’re quiet, the only sound is the sloshing water as our bodies move and shift. I’m getting hotter thanks to the steam wafting upwards from the water and I rest my cheek against her soft hair, closing my eyes.

“Why?”

Her softly spoken question has my eyes cracking open. “Why what?”

“Why can’t you lose me?”

Carefully I lift my head away from her and run my fingers through her hair, letting the strands fall onto her shoulders, the ends trailing in the warm water. “It killed me, knowing you were with him.”

“Why?”

Damn it, she’s going to make me say it, isn’t she?

“Because I care about you, Charlotte.”

She faces straight ahead, her back still to me, bending her knees and wrapping her arms around them. “Nothing about our relationship is normal, Perry. There is no reason for you to care about me or worry when I’ve been abducted by my former—lover.”

I slip my arms around her waist and pull her into me, the water splashing, my mouth at her ear when I murmur, “Don’t call him that.”

“It’s true. Calling him my ex-boyfriend sounds so… wrong. We weren’t ever together, not like that.”

I cup her breasts, running my thumbs over her hardening nipples. “I thought for a while maybe you went with him—willingly.”

She slowly shakes her head. “I would never do that.”

I’m quiet for a moment, considering what she said—and how quickly she said it. “Why?”

“Because I said vows to you and promised to be a faithful wife. I’m a lot of things, but I’m not a liar, Perry. We’re married. I won’t leave you for someone else. I—I care about you, too.” She hesitates and I swear I can feel her sadness. “I hate that he had me first.”

“But I’ll keep you forever.” The words fall from my mouth without thought and for a split second, I regret them.

Then again, I don’t. I mean what I say. I will keep her forever. That asshole can’t have her back, despite his trying. He’ll never try again. I won’t give him the chance.

I’ll chop off his hands and his dick if I have to.

“You don’t mean it,” Charlotte says, her voice so soft, I almost don’t hear her. “You’ll get tired of me, just like everyone else.”

My wife is having a serious pity party tonight but I can’t blame her. She’s been through some shit. Shit I should’ve protected her from. I failed her. I fucked up.

And that kills me.

“I won’t get tired of you.” I nuzzle the side of her head, my mouth at her ear. “Who else tolerates the Chevelle like you do?”

I run my lips down the length of her neck, noting the hitch in her breath when I hit a particular spot. The way she melts against me, tilting her head to the side to give me better access.

“How many girls have you fucked in the Chevelle?” she asks out of nowhere.

Everything within me stills, my mouth still pressed upon her skin. Slowly, carefully, I push her hair out of the way, pressing my forehead against the back of her head and taking a deep breath. “You really want to know?”

Her body stiffens and she leans her head down, as if she’s trying to get away from me. “Maybe?”

I rub her nipple with my thumb, wishing I could put my mouth on her. Taste her warm, wet skin. “The answer might blow your mind.”

She nudges against me, as if she’s trying to buck me off of her. “You’re rude.”

I clamp my arms around her middle so she can’t slip away from me. “It’s zero, Charlotte. I haven’t fucked anyone else in the Chevelle. Until you.”

My wife freezes, turning her head so she can meet my gaze. “You’re serious?”

“Why would I lie to you?” I drop a kiss on her lips, not wanting to push. She responds, leaning into me and I break away first, trying to keep my head. “There’s something here. Between us. You feel it too.”

Charlotte blinks at my honest response. “Do you want to know what I thought about when I was tied up in that room?”

My skin feels like it could burst into flames at her mentioning being tied up. Alone in an empty room, waiting for that McFuckface to come back and do whatever he wanted to her. She must’ve been so damn scared. “What?” I ask, my throat scratchy. “Doja?”

Her eyes fill with tears and a soft laugh leaves her. “You. If I was ever going to see you again. Feel your arms around me. See you smile. Hear your laughter.”

My chest aches at her confession. “I’m never letting you out of my sight again.”

Blurb:

Our marriage may look like a fairytale, but outside forces threaten to tear us apart. Don’t they realize that nothing will keep me apart from Charlotte? Not my family. Not hers either.

What started out as a relationship in name only has evolved into something much more. Something deeper. And when Charlotte is taken from me, I launch into action, determined to rescue her.

She’s mine. Nothing is going to stop me from being with her.

Not a damn thing.

Review – The Reckless Union by Monica Murphy

The Reckless Union; Arranged Marriage #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: August 16, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Midnight Dynasty/Trilogy/Arranged Marriage/Contemporary Romance

Author: Monica Murphy

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Perry Constantine, hands down, has been my favorite Constantine in this entire Midnight Dynasty series!

Perry is protective, possessive, passionate, caring while being a total caveman, he is the total package and I’m completely in love with the man!!

Charlotte takes quite an emotional journey in this final book, but I love how she finally finds her footing with the scary ride she’s been on over the last few months.

While Perry and Charlotte’s marriage may have begun as a sham and forced upon both of them, they both come to realize that it evolved into something beyond either of them ever thought they could have and something that they actually want.

I love a couple that walks through this kind of discovery process on their way to love, but it wasn’t without lots of bumps along the way.

This couple is just….ahhhhh…absolutely everything I wanted from Perry and his arranged marriage bride. Even the moments with his family were devine. I loved it!

Synopsis:
THIRD BOOK IN THE ARRANGED MARRIAGE TRILOGY!

Our marriage may look like a fairytale, but outside forces threaten to tear us apart. Don’t they realize that nothing will keep me apart from Charlotte? Not my family. Not hers either.

What started out as a relationship in name only has evolved into something much more. Something deeper. And when Charlotte is taken from me, I launch into action, determined to rescue her.

She’s mine. Nothing is going to stop me from being with her.

Not a damn thing.

Welcome to the Midnight Dynasty… The warring Morelli and Constantine families have enough bad blood to fill an ocean, and their brand new stories will be told by your favorite dangerous romance authors.

The Ruthless Groom by Monica Murphy is now live! 

I didn’t plan to marry a reclusive heiress. Lucky for me, I find myself attracted to my beautiful new bride. Our arranged marriage connects two powerful companies. That we’re compatible between the sheets is a bonus, but I didn’t bargain on her ex showing up at the wedding reception uninvited.

That pushed me right over the edge.

I protect what’s mine, and Charlotte is now mine, whether she likes it or not. Our honeymoon is a disaster in paradise. I’m angry. She’s resentful. All those swirling emotions explode in the most physical ways.

But even as I’m drawn closer to my new wife, there’s still a threat looming out there. Seamus McTiernan is determined to destroy what we’ve created.

I won’t let anything tear us apart.

He has no idea who he’s dealing with. I will end him.

Review – The Ruthless Groom by Monica Murphy

60891763. sy475

The Ruthless Groom; Arranged Marriage #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: June 14, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Midnight Dynasty/Arranged Marriage Romance

Author: Monica Murphy

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
The Wedding Day is here!! Perry Constantine in a tux..be still my heart. Even better..Perry Constantine on his honeymoon…holy hotness!!!

That fine line between love and hate, oh my fresh panties!!! Perry Constantine wants his new bride, but he doesn’t trust her. When Charlotte’s ex appears on their wedding day, all feelings Perry may have been building up to that point disintegrates, but it doesn’t shatter the lust and chemistry that sizzles between them. Perry still desires his wife, but he will call himself a fool before he opens up to her again.

Charlotte is hurt by Perry’s cold demoner, but also confused by his passion. His mixed signals have her confused, but also blazing hot with lust which means she isn’t willing to give up just yet. Not only is she free from her father, but she’s happier than she’s ever been. If this is how her life going forward, it’s still better than what she left behind and maybe given enough time Perry will grow as fond of her as she is of him.

This book is steamy, steamy, and did I mention steamy. I adore this couple and how they have made the best of their arranged marriage situation. Perry is so easy to like even when he’s growly and grumpy. Charlotte is really coming into her own and I’m excited to see what happens in the next book to bring these two closer together.

Synopsis:
I didn’t plan to marry a reclusive heiress. Lucky for me, I find myself attracted to my beautiful new bride. Our arranged marriage connects two powerful companies. That we’re compatible between the sheets is a bonus, but I didn’t bargain on her ex showing up at the wedding reception uninvited.

That pushed me right over the edge.

I protect what’s mine, and Charlotte is now mine, whether she likes it or not. Our honeymoon is a disaster in paradise. I’m angry. She’s resentful. All those swirling emotions explode in the most physical ways.

But even as I’m drawn closer to my new wife, there’s still a threat looming out there. Seamus McTiernan is determined to destroy what we’ve created.

I won’t let anything tear us apart.

He has no idea who he’s dealing with. I will end him.

Watch me.

Welcome to the Midnight Dynasty… The warring Morelli and Constantine families have enough bad blood to fill an ocean, and their brand new stories will be told by your favorite dangerous romance authors.

WARNING: This book is intended for readers eighteen years old and over. It contains material that some readers could find disturbing. Enter at your own risk..

Review – The Reluctant Bride by Monica Murphy

58927051. sy475

The Reluctant Bride; Arranged Marriage #1 
(#1 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: April 19, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Arranged Marriage/Midnight Dynasty Romance

Author: Monica Murphy

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Since I first stepped into the Constantine world, I was in love with Perry Constantine. Yes, he’s playful, indulged, and a bit spoiled. He’s the opposite of his intense, older brother – Winston, but that’s what makes him so loveable. I’m over the moon to finally have his story and tickled pink that his character is still a mama’s boy to the ice cold Constantine queen. Add in the fact that Perry is very self aware of his self-indulgent lifestyle, he is my favorite character in this Midnight Dynasty world yet. This book is all that and a bag of chips!!

Charlotte Lancaster is the only daughter of one of the wealthiest families in the country, but that doesn’t make her a pampered princess, quite the opposite actually. Instead she’s a commodity to be traded to the highest bidder which happens to be the Constantine family. Unfortunately, neither party involved in the trading is actually involved in the deal. The documents are signed and the marriage is already going to happen whether Perry or Charlotte want it or not.

Charlotte is a woman torn emotionally, desperately wanting to escape the tight control that her father has on her, but also hating that the only way to escape is through an arranged marriage set up by her controlling father. She doesn’t want to like her – forced upon her – fiancé, but the more time she spends in his company, she just can’t help herself. It wasn’t in her plans to stay with Perry, but maybe being married to him won’t be so bad.

Perry is charismatic, cool, and just fly AF. He’s the kind of guy you want to hang out with and definitely want as a bed partner cause when he’s laying on the charm…hot damn. The man is hard to resist. I want more of him and his sexy as sin charm.

The Reluctant Bride is an excellent beginning to this trilogy and I can’t wait to see how this couple gives in to their electric chemistry.
