Hey guys!!!!

I'll be sharing an excerpt with you today and there will also be a giveaway for an $100 Amazon Gift Card. (SERIOUSLY YOU SHOULD ALL GO ENTER IT! THINK OF ALL THE BOOKS  YOU CAN PURCHASE!!!<3)

Conquer Your Love
by J.C Reed
Release Date: June 8th 2013

Meeting Jett was like bad luck. Dangerous. Unpredictable. And better avoided. In his game, the stakes are high. But are they worth the risk?
 Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, finds forgetting is hard, but forgiving is harder. When the man she trusted, betrayed her, the only way to forget is to move on. Brooke is determined to start a new life, until she meets him again: the green-eyed, sexy as sin, six foot two sex god. The man who played dirty. The man who played her. Sexy, handsome, and arrogant Jett Mayfield knows he has made mistakes. He could have any other woman, and yet it’s Brooke he wants. When second chances collide with secrets and Brooke is threatened by the past, Jett is determined to protect her. She accepts his help unwillingly because she needs him but she wants to play his game on her own terms. And she has no intention to forgive or let him back into her bed. When the man she is supposed to hate is the one she should trust, will he conquer her…or lose her forever?
A woman who can’t forgive. 
A man who has made mistakes. 
Two lives that are about to cross again and more secrets laid bare.
