Checking It Twice blurbage and a contest!

Update: Contest winner is Chrisbails! Congrats, Chris!

For all the readers who've asked if there will be any more books in The Naughty List world, I'm happy to say that Checking It Twice--Jana's book--will be releasing in late November! YAY! I don't have a cover to show off yet, but I thought I'd share the mancandy that inspired the two heroes, Kevin and Nick. 

I know, David Gandy and Channing Tatum are such a hardship to look at. Please forgive me for subjecting you to their rock hard abs and pecs. Soon as I get some cover love I promise to share the goods. 

In the meantime, how about a peek at the brand spankin' new blurb for Checking It Twice and a contest? 

First up, blurbage!

Tis the season for double seduction

The only item on Jana Colton’s Christmas list this year is Kevin Monahan. Preferably naked in her bed. The delicious, hunky chef has been resisting her forever, but she’s pulling out all the sexy stops this holiday. Especially since his acceptance of an out-of-state job threatens to nix her quest to rock his boxers off.

Jana has always been Kevin’s personal Kryptonite, but giving in to her isn’t an option. Relationships are a four-letter word in his book. He cares far too much for Jana to let his emotional baggage ultimately break her heart.

With the arrival of his best friend, Nick Pappas, the balance of temptation shifts. From their past history of sharing women, Nick knows every dirty trick it takes to lead Kevin astray, and he’s not afraid to use them. Particularly since Nick’s convinced that Jana is exactly what Kevin needs to be happy and whole.

Their game of seduction quickly snowballs into something that feels an awful lot like love—in triplicate. But with Kevin dead set on leaving Michigan, there’s a real possibility it could be a blue Christmas for them all.

Warning: This book contains an extremely tormented voyeur, a very naughty and not so saintly Nick, a liberal application of candy cane-flavored body paint, a buzzing butterfly, and enough raunchy fun on a sex swing to melt a snowman…or two.  

 And now for the contest! What can you win, you ask? How about a digital copy of The Naughty List (or another of my backlist if you already have TNL)? But hold on, my pretties. In addition to that, the lucky winner will score an ARC of Checking It Twice once I get the final ARCs. How freakin' sweet is that? Since the book is still in edits, I don't have a firm date yet, but I guarantee the winner will get bragging rights of reading the book before anyone else (aside from me, my editor, the final line editor, and Stan, my drunk orangutang assistant. Who by the way, gave it two hairy thumbs up. And that was without me bribing him with J├Ągermeister, in case you were wondering.) To get in on this extraordinary opportunity, all you have to do is one of the following:

A) Leave a comment telling me what the last sexy book you read was. Doesn't have to be one of mine. But ego stroking is always welcome and encouraged. ;)

B) Leave a comment about what you'd like to see more of in the way of sexy romances. Menages? BDSM? Kinky prairie dog-shifter sex? (Hey, I judge not.)

C) Sneak into the locker room at Joe Manganiello's health club and snap a pic as he's getting out of the shower. *side note--don't use my name when the cops come to arrest you. Trust me on this.*

D) Cage wrestle a velociraptor. *side note--I require photographic evidence for this one. And dressing up your dog in a Barney costume won't fly anymore. I'm on to you people.*

That's it! Easy peasy. Contest is open to everyone, but closes midnight on June 2nd. One entry per person, and please leave an email addy for me to contact you if you're the winner. Good luck, everyone!

Hi Jodi! I'm actually reading Cat Scratch Fever right now...and it is pretty darn sexy!!! *stroke, stroke* lol! I would like to see more menages with dragon shifters ( prairie dogs are cool and all...but dragons shifters are super sexy for me!) Thanks for the awesome contest....YOU ROCK!!!!!!!


Kassandra said...

Out of Focus by LA Witt was absolutely melt my shorts hot *fans self*. That was my most recent sexy read. Love your blurb!

I just read The Darkest Surrender by Gena Showalter.

I'd like to see more of what's already out there.

I'm setting up my cage match against the velociraptor right now. The guy's agent is a real dick, though, and is demanding it be a fight to the death. So, if I don't get back to you with those pictures, I'm dead. But I want you to know that my last thoughts were of you.

Come to think of it, I'd like to see this velociraptor get a little action. He might be less bitey and claw-y if he got laid every once in a blue moon. Make it happen, Jodi! MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Joanne said...

Thanks for the great post. The last sexy book I read was Body Rush by Anne Rainey.
I'd like to see more menages and BDSM out there in romance books.
Thanks for the great blurb.

Nice Gandy & Tatum pics!

The last sexy book I read was Under His Protection by Karen Erickson.

I've been reading a broad selection of different kinds of romances, so I can't say that there is something that I would like to see more of. BDSM seems to be a big deal these days, and I've just barely dabbled in it with my reading adventures, so maybe I'll start there:)

Alas I can't do C & D, but I totally would if I could:)

Themost recent sexy books I have read Arethe Christina Dodd series' The Chosen Ones and Darkness Choosen..however I can't wait to read some of your books to add themto that list!

The last mindlessly hot book I read was Brook Street: Rogues, by Ava March. F/F/M threesomes don't do it for me, but M/M/F - that's another story. Brook Street is a m/m book, and I thought it was kind of hot. So there you go. Girl on girl doesn't buzz my tower, but man on man kinda sorta (OKAY, it FOR SURE) does.

I've got to say that Checking it Twice looks pretty hot!

As for the Joe M. picture - I'll send that when I'm finished with it.

I just finished reading Archangel's Blade by Nalini, and it was uber sexy.

I would like to seem more command and cherish bdsm storylines. Not a fan of slave or hardcore punishment plots.

I love to read and have read some really sexy, great books lately. I read Cat Scratch Fever and loved it. Another good one was of course The Fifty Shades Trilogy with the 2nd book being my favorite. I have also been reading Melissa Schroeder's Harmless series. I am on book 3 so far and loving them. Very sexy books.
What a great giveaway. Big fan of Jodi's books. I love Jodi's Old Black Magic series. Love me some Logan & Samael.

Hey everyone! I'm finally back online and thanks to Random.Org, have a winner.


Congrats to Chrisbails!

Thank you so much to everyone who took the time out to enter. You guys really rock. And I can see from the great book recs that I'll be adding to my TBR pile!

Kelly--a hot velociraptor shifter book *might* be in the works now. I'll get it to you right after the pufferfish, eel & stingray menage. The love scenes are gonna be electrifying! Literally.

Jodi: I love you. That is all.
