Blog Tour Stop & Giveaway: Luck of Love by Ashley Poch and Tiffany Aleman

Blake Riley thought she could leave her traumatic past behind when she left for college. Starting a new life and moving forward never sounded so good. Living carefree with her best friend in Ocean City New Jersey gave her the freedom she had always hoped for. 

But sometimes life isn’t so carefree.

When Blake finds herself torn between the affections of two men, emotions that have been buried for years will be exposed. Derrick, a powerful CEO of a popular casino resort, instantly captivates her. Being drawn into his domineering passion, she bares herself to him in a way she least expected. With Landon, a successful attorney, she can be someone new; someone free from her haunting past. Each man evokes a different side of Blake. As both relationships grow stronger, walls will slowly begin to crack.

What will happen when the past slowly creeps its way into the present?

With two worlds filled with secrets and lies, it’s only a matter of time before they crash and truths are revealed.

My Take

I'm going to keep this short & simple because my mind is still reeling from that cliffhanger! FYI, my review could be slightly spoilery, so proceed with caution. 
Luck of Love, while frustrating at times, was quite an enjoyable book. While this book is set-up to be a love triangle, I had a hard time buying it. Derrick and Blake have a true
connection, and amazing chemistry. I loved them together, and for over half of the book Derrick's the main 
player. The relationship with Landon and Blake didn't develop enough for me to believe that there could be 
a true triangle, nor did I really buy Landon's feelings. My heart was 100% with Derrick the whole time, and Blake's actions just did not make sense to me, and to be honest, it made me pretty angry. However, the authors did a great job with the resolution to what she did- one that made me very happy. And thinking back on it, Blake has little to no relationship experience, so she was pretty overwhelmed by the two guys. In restrospect, I can be sympathetic, but I still wanted to shake the girl!

There is a crazy cliffhanger ending that nearly broke my heart. I'm dying for Luck and Faith, and will be 
reading it as soon as it comes out.

Dream Cast

Answering her the only way I know how, I slam my mouth to hers.  Within seconds, one of my hands threads through her hair as the other pulls her into me.  Grabbing my shirt and balling it into fists, she pulls me down the hallway.

Shoving me up against the wall, my hands leave her hair grabbing her ass and lifting her up.  Her legs wrap around me as I spin, crushing her to the wall.  Pressing against her and lifting her higher, a low growl escapes me when her hands tug on my hair.  Nipping at her bottom lip, I pull back with hooded eyes and panting I say, “I want you—now. Room?”  Pointing in the direction of her room, my tongue plunges in her mouth, her arms bind around my neck as I carry her to her room.

Turning the knob and shoving the door open, we walk through, and I kick it closed behind me.  Laying her down on the bed and hovering above her while bearing my weight on my forearms, Blake’s fingers snake up in my hair pulling and tugging.  Our tongues dance together in a wild passionate tango.  Pulling back my arm, my hand glides down her thigh lifting her leg and hitching it around my waist.  Raising my head, I pin her with my gaze—watching her lose control.  With a slow, powerful and controlled thrust, I rub the bulge in my pants across her core showing her just how much I want her.  Blake’s head drops back as her back arches, pushing her breasts up.  A deep growl escapes me as I thrust again.  Leaning my head down meeting the hollow in her neck, I draw a straight line with the tip of my tongue reaching her ear, moaning low in her throat she says breathlessly, “Ahh…Landon…oh…my…God,”

Sucking her lobe into my mouth biting it gently, I whisper, “I know you want me Blake.  Your body trembling beneath me proves it.  How much do you want me?” I ask, thrusting faster, gliding my covered dick against her.  Crying out loudly this time, I ask her, “Have you been waiting, wanting to see what I’d feel like pressed up against you, with my dick against your clit like this?  I can read your body Blake, and how it cries out for me.  God baby, I want you.” I can feel the throbbing of her core through her pants as I grind my dick against her in a swirling motion.  I make my way down her neck kissing, licking, nipping and sucking all the way down to her collarbone.

About Tiffany
I am 27 years old, with a wonderful family. My husband is in the Army, and we have two wonderful children. Ashley and I have been best of friends since we were 13. I recently graduated from South University with my Associate's Degree as a Paralegal. I enjoy listening to music, playing with my kids, and going to the beach, and anything that has to do with the outdoors pretty much.
I’ve always liked to write, but never really had an interest in reading until the summer of 2012. I am so excited to be taking my writing journey with Ashley, and we cannot wait for everyone to get their hands on Luck of Love, which is the first installment in the Luck Series. I have many authors that I consider my favorite so I’ll just name a few: E.L. James, SC Stephens, Molly McAdams, Rebecca Donovan, K.A Linde, Marie Coulson, and S.H. Kolee. 

About Ashley
Ashley grew up in Texas but now has joined her husband to reside in North Dakota. She is a military wife and mother to two adorable children. She’s always wanted to travel having grown up in a small town. Her interest in reading sparked last summer and now she’s a lost cause without her e-reader. Since she loves to travel, the places she gets to go in her fictional books are what any girl could ask for. 

When Ashley isn’t glued to her computer you can find her outdoors either playing with her children or relaxing and enjoying the sun reading a good romance novel.
