Necessary Phone Accessories Even Though We Hate They’re Necessary

If only our phone batteries could last as long as our will to stay far away from electrical plugs, then we wouldn’t need to carry stupid portable phone chargers and extra charging cords.


But that’s not going to change anytime soon, so we pour our money into our techno-addictions, because nothing’s worse than getting down to 4% and needing to find your squad.

Whether you’re attending Shameless Book Con 2016 (you should) or not (we’ll miss you!), having a portable phone charger with you at times when you know you’ll be draining the battery is a necessity.

Here are a few we recommend! Bonus: You should be able to get them in time for #SBC16!

Favorite Quotes

“Ben,” I say, narrowing my eyes. “Are you…booksting me?”
He cocks an eyebrow. “Booksting?”
“Yeah. When a hot guy talks books with a girl  It’s like sexting, but out loud and with books instead of sex. Nor does it have to do with texts. Okay, so it’s nothing like sexting, but it made sense in my head.”
Guys see boobs coupled with a great sense of humor and think they’ve found the holy fucking grail.
“Baby,” he says, his lips forming a smile. “You have already made this the best sex I’ve ever had and I’m not even inside you yet.”
He’s soaking me up like it’s a privilege rather than a favor.
“Do fictional boyfriends cry as much as I do?” I ask her. She laughs.
“Only the really great ones.”

Win An ARC Of November 9 by Colleen Hoover!

It’s no secret that Colleen Hoover is one of our favorite authors. There’s not a single one of her books that at least a few of us has given 5 stars. (Ugly Love? Platinum. Hopeless? Certified. Slammed? Classic.)

She’s an Elite Author, for gosh sakes!

November 9 is her latest release, and it will be landing on e-readers and bookshelves everywhere on November 10. (I’m sure the publishers wanted to release it on the 9th, but even they weren’t powerful enough to move the day of the week.)

Adrian and I have had the pleasure to read November 9 already, and lemme tell ya, it’s one of CoHo’s BEST.

We’re doing some extra super special fun things for the release of the book over the next 2 weeks, and we’re starting with a giveaway of a paperback ARC of November 9!


Enter to win my ARC paperback* OR a Kindle e-book of November 9 by Colleen Hoover!

The Queen by Tiffany Reisz

Favorite Quotes

Nora loved Søren. This was an incontrovertible fact of the universe, strong as gravity, inevitable as sunrise.
“No, what do they call a sociopath with a conscience?”
“They call her ‘Mistress.’”
“She isn’t lonely,” Kingsley said. “Not this woman. This is a woman who can walk into any room, find the most handsome face in the crowd, look him in the eyes and know she will take him home with her on a leash.”
“The clit.” Elle sighed. “The only organ on the human body designed solely for pleasure. Proof God is a woman.”
His mouth found hers and the kiss was everything she’d forgotten she needed. He dominated her with the kiss, overwhelmed her, overpowered her. She was on her back on the bed before she knew it had happened. If she’d had any pride or any dignity or any self-control whatsoever she would have stopped it with a word. But she didn’t want her pride and she didn’t want her dignity and God knew she didn’t want selfcontrol. She just wanted him.
He held her down with his hands but she stayed there because of her heart.
She wondered idly what he would do to her if he managed to escape his bonds. Probably a sex act still illegal in thirty-nine states. Too bad she’d tied him up so well.

Never lose sight The Queen Quote

He didn’t tell her where they were going, because it didn’t matter. As long as she never lost sight of Him, she would never lose her way.
“I’ve always wanted to use a whip,” Nora said. “I think I saw too many Indiana Jones movies as a kid. Do you think he was kinky?”
“French Vanilla,” Kingsley said.
“What’s that?”
“Vanilla with a strong libido and a taste for anal.”
Spent now, she considered leaving. Leaving tonight, this minute. Getting up, getting dressed and walking out without another word. He’d fucked her and hadn’t finished to prove a point. When he was inside her it wasn’t his come or his cock she begged for but his pain. If she were to do something so foolish as to fall in love with someone vanilla, this is what she could expect…endless frustration. It would leave her as unfulfilled as her body was right now. It would leave her always wanting more.
Was there anything in the world more erotic than to be in bed with a beautiful man who’d beaten and fucked her while another beautiful man who’d also beaten and fucked her lounged in a chair by the bed, wearing nothing but fitted trousers and reading French erotica to them?
“My cock isn’t huge but it’s tenacious.”
“I’ve never met a tenacious cock before. I look forward to making its acquaintance.”
Pain. Blessed pain. The dead feel no pain, and Nora had never felt more alive than she did at this moment with her heart in her throat and her eyes shedding tears.

“I hope you don’t have any plans,” he whispered as he put his hand up my shirt. “Because once that door opens, you’re mine.”
“He ran his hand over my pants and pressed at my crotch. “Oh, God.” “I want you,” he said into my ear. “And when we get back into that apartment, I’m taking you.” I pushed against him in answer, jerking my hips against the flat of his fingers. Yes, yes, and yes. Everything, yes.”
“Yet all I could think about was how much I wanted to take Laine to bed. Feel her twisted under me, hear her cry out for me. I wanted to share sweat and skin, to blend a scent of our own making.”

Favorite Quotes

She didn’t have breasts, she had…tits.  Naughty, up-to-no-good, made-to-bounce tits.  The kind he’d seen in skin magazines or in high-quality porn.  They were pushed up in leather, exactly as they were meant to be.
Just for tonight, she wanted to be someone’s requirement to go on breathing.
I wanted to hold you down and—and fuck you. Without holding back. I wanted to push your legs wide open and fuck you while your nails made my back bleed.
Touch me, move me, enter me, speak to me however it feels right. Everything you do will be right.
I showed you my ache, now show me yours.
Move me how you want me, Beck. Grind me down, bounce me, make me ride you slow. Do whatever makes you come the hardest.
He made her feel too…right. Like she was supposed to be here all along and hadn’t known.
When we’re not fucking, I will treat you like gold. But right now, all I can think about is wearing out my little bad girl.
I’m giving you one minute to play, Kenna, then it’s time to start wearing you out. I’ll be making up for lost time with that sinner’s body.
“You’re going to have to talk.  Tell me what you want, Huntley.  Then maybe I’ll give you the mouth-fuck you want.”

If you hated me,” he pulls his hand away, leaving me to sag with disappointment, “you wouldn’t be this wet.” His fingers force their way into my mouth, coated with my need.
‘Face it, Princess, my biggest crime today was making you come too hard.’
I hold up my hands in surrender. ‘Guilty as charged.’
If we weren’t in a busy village pub on a Sunday evening, I’d be sprawled across that table by now, I have no doubt. Thank heavens for the general public.

I think it’s time we cleared this shit up. I like your hand on my dick. I’d like your mouth on it better. I want your cunt, your ass—everything. No more games, Becca. You know who and what I am, and you know that when I fuck you, it won’t be pretty. I don’t do pretty.
His hardness pressed into me and when he started walking me backward toward my bedroom, it never occurred to me to protest. Nothing occurred to me, actually. Full brain shutdown.
Doesn’t matter how fuckable a woman looks in a pair of pants if you can’t get them off when it’s time to tap ass.
“Pull down your fucking pants,” I repeated, reaching down to grab my cock. “I want in. Now.”

Favorite Quotes

One of those big hands ran over his short hair and I swear my sex wept in gratitude at the sight. I was out of control. If he fondled his beard I might faint.
He ground his face into me, eating me, going wild, and it felt fucking amazing. Mind-blowing, breath-stealing. Everything. I got it now. Beards were the best. His tongue was like a lick of heat, his lips silken smooth and so damn strong. That beard, however. Holy shit. Too many sensations, too much, and all I could do was take it.
His chest was so pretty. So hard and big and stuff, it made my IQ drop to my shoe size. Everything about him did. The bearded sex machine turned me into a stuttering fool. Sad but true.
“You got my dick on a leash. Might as well have the rest of me.”
“No touching yourself,” he ordered in a low, gruff voice. “Getting you off is my job now. You need me, call. Get to you as soon as I can, okay?”

“Watching you work fucks me up. You have any idea what it does to me when you bend over a table and smile? It makes me want to pull up your skirt and turn that smile into a scream.”
“Come on, I want to feel that wet little shake of yours. The one I tasted with my mouth last night. Tasted so damn good, baby.”
“Just remember one thing. No matter what happens or where you go, I had you first. I took up every tight inch of you. I watched you get off while you called me your man. Nothing, nothing, will ever change that. You might not want me, but I’ll be your man until I die.”
“Those lips are the best fuck I’ve ever had.  But not for long.  Isn’t that right, Sera?  We both know it’s only a matter of time before I’m pounding the purity right out of you.”

“And what’s your job in all this?”
“My job is to fuck you until the neighbors think I’m murdering you.”
“You’re garbage.” I was clothed in him, a corset laced tight with desire and pain. I wanted his fingers to dig into me and find my filth, my foulness. Only he could find it and grind it out. There was only one way to do that. There had only ever been one way. “Fuck me. Fuck me hard, you worthless piece of shit.”
“You’re going to cry, Contessa. But not in pain.” He put my knee over the hood of the car, and he got in even deeper, groaning. He went slowly, rotating his hips gently.
“You won’t weep from being hurt. Not from me. You’re going to shed tears from coming so hard you forget who you are. And when you return, you’ll remember you’re mine, and you’ll cry then too.” He pumped me hard, once, and I screamed in surprise. “And you’ll cry again.”
“I was going to break from the inside out of he didn’t bend me into nameless shapes.”
“Respect isn’t treating me like I’m made of sugar.  Because I’m not.  I’m made of cum and saliva.  I’m made of salty sweat, and I taste like fucking.  I sound like an orgasm that’s so hard you can’t even scream, and I fuck like a closed fist.”
“Do it until I break,” I hissed. “Make me cry.”
Who could be angry while laughing and wearing a shirt covered in cum?
