Wet and Wild Blog Hop!

It's the Wet and Wild Blog Hop! Three of my favorite things. Wet. Wild. Blog Hop. :)

Now that summer is beating down our doors, it's time to get down to reading. I don't know about you, but I'm waaaaayyyyyy behind on my TBR list.

What's in store, you ask? Well, here are my top five, sexy, can't wait to read books for this summer.

Parker's Summer Reading - Top Five

 #5 - Turn and Burn by Lorelei James

My number five just happens to be the fifth book in Lorelei James' Blacktop Cowboy series. After One Night Rodeo, I'm excited to find out what's in store for sassy Tanna. Too bad I'll have to wait until August to find out...

 #4 - Rush by Maya Banks

I love anything Maya Banks writes, so I'm very excited about this first book in her her Breathless Trilogy. I mean, come on. One of the three most wealthy men in the country, living out his sexual desires? Sign. Me. Up.
#3 Rescue in the Smokies by Becca Jameson

I love the warning on this book. "Warning: This book contains hunky shape-shifters living in the mountains, hot steamy sex in caves, mind-blowing oral, mild bondage and wild abandonment in front of mirrors."

She had me at "Warning."

#2 - Predator's Kiss by Rosanna Leo

I'm planning a summer filled with sexy, of course, I can't forget Rosanna Leo. Aside from the fact that she's a friend, I adore her and everything she writes. I can't wait to settle in with these yummy bears!

#1 - Redneck Romeo by Lorelei James

I know, I know. Lorelei already has a book in my top five...but is it my fault she's releasing two books this summer? I first learned about this series a few years ago...and I'm hooked. Whew, this is book 15...and I hope there are that many more to come. The way the McKays reproduce...I'd expect we will have characters for the Rough Rider series for years to come. :)
So, there you have it. Of course, I have hundreds more to read. These five are just the tip of the iceberg.What are your summer reads? I know you're looking forward to my new release, Spring Training, aren't you? Because it releases TODAY!! :)

There are lots of prizes for this hop - and I'm giving one lucky commenter a free eBook copy of Spring Training. Winner will be chosen at random, but your email address must be included to win, as well as to qualify for the grand prize listed below!

GRAND PRIZE: (provided by our sexy host, Skye Warren)

Thank you for hopping with us! Below is a list of others participating in this hop - so be sure to visit as many as you can for a chance to win lots of great prizes.

Prize offered at this stop: eBook copy of Spring Training by Parker Kincade

For baseball superstar Garrett Donovan, his contract with the New York Empire baseball team meant he’d finally have the means to secure a future for his family. He should focus on that…not on the sassy, beautiful Jessa Montgomery — or what she looks like naked. Getting involved with the daughter of the Empire’s owner would be career suicide. Jessa is a distraction he can’t afford.

Her father had warned her never to get involved with his athletes, so his request that she keep an eye on his new star player came straight out of left field. The last thing Jessa needs is another spoiled, egotistical ball player to deal with. But Garrett is none of those things. His no-nonsense attitude and smooth Southern charm make her blood burn and her knees weak. Giving into temptation, she is consumed by the pleasure she finds in Garrett’s arms.

Jessa wants to protect his career. Garrett won’t let anything get in the way of their passion.

A passion that could cost him everything.

Available NOW on Amazon and ARe!
