{Release Blitz} All or Nothing

Title: All or Nothing
Series: Love in Chaos #1
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 13, 2020



Seven days to find myself a wife, or my best friend gets my company.
All because of a stupid, drunken bet.
Charming a woman into marrying me should be easy.
And it would’ve been, if Jake wasn’t doing everything in his power to sabotage me, like stranding me on a boat full of horny pensioners—including our moms. But Jake’s little sister, Liv, tagged along.
Under any other circumstance, I’d never go there. But if he’s going to play dirty, then so am I.


I haven’t seen Ben since I was fourteen years old.
Until last night, when he tried picking me up in a bar.
He had no idea who I was then, but he certainly knows now.
Second chances don’t come around often, but I don’t think I’m supposed to take this one.
He’s my brother’s best friend, and he’s off-limits.
No matter how much I want to go there.

“Shall we test that theory, then?”

I jump at the sound of the sexy British accent coming from behind me in the next booth. There’s a familiarity to his voice that catches me off guard, but I can’t quite place where I know it from. I swallow, because Tara wasn’t kidding about the accent thing and this guy sounds like a snack. 

Oh shit. Tara. He must’ve been eavesdropping on our conversation. 

“What theory is that?” I ask, both annoyed and embarrassed. 

Then I tell myself off for getting ahead of myself, because I don’t even know for sure he overheard our conversation—

“The one where your will panties soak at the sound of my accent.” 

Okay. Now I’m sure.

“What, no response?” he teases. “We can talk about something else if you want. Like how your friend abandoned you?”

“She’s getting our drinks,” I reply.

“This has got to be the longest drink collection in history,” he remarks. “And I’m pretty sure I saw her disappear around the back with the guy behind the bar.”

I’m not sure whether to believe him or not, but she has been gone awhile, and I’m more than a little worried she’s been kicked out for being underaged. 

Me: Did you get caught?

Tara: Sorry. Distracted. Turns out Germans really do have long tongues 😉

I groan inwardly and set my phone down on the table. 

Way, way too much information.

“Yeah, she’s abandoned me,” I grumble.

“I guess I’ll join you, then.” 

I sit straight upright, because suddenly, he’s right there, sliding into my booth across from me. My eyes widen, because this isn’t just some random guy trying to hit on me. It’s Ben, my brother’s best friend, the source of the rumors all those years ago, and the one person I didn’t want to run into. Ever

I silently curse Tara for choosing this bar of all places, and then I hold my breath and wait for the recognition to spark in his eyes, but it doesn’t. I stare right at him and he smiles back, his lopsided grin enough to send my heart into overdrive. My heart thumps as it hits me.

He has no idea who I am. 

“Are you okay?”

I jump at the sound of his voice and force myself to nod. 

That accent sounds so fake now that I know it’s Ben. I have to stop myself from laughing. Is this what he does, hang around in bars, pretending to be someone he isn’t just so he can pick up? I shiver at the thought of going home with him, because silly accent aside, he’s still the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen. 

He’s even hotter than he was the last time I saw him, which was almost six years ago. Those intense green eyes feel like they’re penetrating my soul and every now and then he casually rakes his long fingers through his dark, short cropped hair. When he rubs his lightly stubbled jaw, I lean forward as my nipples harden against the raw silk of my top.

“Cold?” he smirks.

I go red.

He nods at my arms in explanation. “Goosebumps.”


“I’m Ben, by the way.”

“I’m…Louise,” I finish, using my middle name instead of Liv.

“Louise,” he repeats, my name rolling off his tongue. I swallow, because my middle name has never sounded so sexy. “So, you’re alone and I’m alone …”

“It appears that way,” I squeak. 

 “So…” His eyes meet mine. “No panties, huh?”

Oh god.

I’m so embarrassed. I look away and immediately wish I hadn’t. My heart races as I spot Jake walking toward the exit. When he stops and turns around, I do the only thing I can think of; slide under the table until I’m on the floor, much to the amusement of Ben. 

He peers down between his legs, a smirk on his lips, like he’s trying to work out what the hell I’m doing. My face flames, because God only knows what he’s thinking—probably that all his dreams are about to come true.

“I’m not going to lie, this has taken a turn I wasn’t expecting,” he admits.

“Don’t flatter yourself,” I snap, my face even redder. “I dropped an earring.”

Really? That’s what I’m going with?

“You dropped an earring?” he repeats, a bemused smile on his face. “Is that even a thing? Do earrings really pop out at the most inconvenient of moments that leave you crouching between the legs of your date?” He leans down so we’re face to face. “Funny, looks to me like you have both earrings where they should be.” 

“Date?” I chortle, conveniently ignoring his observation. “When did this become a date?”

“When your friend abandoned you and I felt obligated to step in?” he suggests.

{Release Blitz} The Playbook 1


Title: The Playbook
Series: The Playbook #1
Authors: Lily Jane & Missy Johnson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 13, 2016



I bring new meaning to the phrase ‘Most Valuable Player’ Women love me, men want to be me and my team mates loathe the constant attention I bring. Trouble always finds me, both on and off the field. I see so much controversy the tabloids have my manager on speed dial. My life is a non-stop rollercoaster of football, women, and sex and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Foolishly, I believed I was untouchable but everything changes when I’m traded to Crystal Hill Football Club. The coach warns me to clean my act up—meaning no more scandals—so from now on; I’m flying under the radar. That resolution lasts one day—twenty-four hours—before I lose a bet to my new teammates. I never could pass up a challenge.

My punishment?

Five dates with girls of their choosing.

Five chicks I’d never even blink at, given the choice.

But, a bet’s a bet, so I’ll suck it up and do my time.

“Have you heard the rumor about football players?”

The pretty blonde perched on the barstool next to where I’m leaning giggles, her gaze darting in my direction. She flips her hair over her shoulder and flashes me a smile. Through her sheer cream shirt, I can see her nipples harden. The fact that she’s not wearing a bra tells me two things; she’s probably good to go and I’m not going to have to struggle with bra clips.

“And what would that be?” she purrs, her smile widening.

“That we’re incredible at giving head,” I murmur. I reach out and stroke a stray strand of hair away from her twinkling eyes. She laughs, shaking her head. Even as she pushes me away, I’m still confident I’ve sealed this deal. In case you haven’t picked up on it, chicks don’t often turn me down.

“Really?” She laughs. “Did you start that rumor?” Before I can answer, her face lights up as she spots someone behind me. I turn and straighten up as a mountain of a guy barrels toward me, his eyes blazing. I back off slightly, sensing I’m in trouble, but as he nears me, his annoyed expression is replaced with one of awe.

“Holy shit, you’re Jake Tanner.”

He laughs and claps his hand on my back. My heart thumps, because I’m pretty sure if I were anyone else I’d be lying on my back on the floor right now, bleeding from my nose. It’s not the first time my name has gotten me out of a tight situatation, but just as often, it’s put me into them.

“That goal, man. I tell ya, I thought we were gone for sure, then you came out of nowhere. I love you, man.” He throws his arms around me, lifting me square off the floor.

When he lets me go, I grin and lean back, winking at blondie, who rolls her eyes, obviously annoyed that this wasn’t going to plan. A chick as hot as she is has to be a regular target for any guy looking for a quick fix.

“Maybe you can test out your theory on my boyfriend,” she mutters.

“Or maybe your boyfriend will loan you to me for the night,” I reply, holding her gaze. Her eyes widen and she glances at her boyfriend, obviously expecting him to smash my face in. Hell, I’m expecting it too. Sometimes my nerve surprises even me.

“Uh, really?” He hesitates, then takes a deep breath. “If that’s what you want, then sure.”

Blondie gasps and jumps of her seat.

“Darren, you arsehole,” she rants, whacking him over the head with her handbag. He shrugs as if he can’t see what the big deal is.

“He’s Jake Tanner, babe. You should be honoured.”

Chuckling, I cross my arms over my chest. I’m liking this guy more and more. I look back at blondie and raise my eyebrows. She huffs and stalks off, in the direction of the exit. Oh well. Plenty more chicks around here who would appreciate going home with me. And if that fails, at least I still have Darren.

Then I meet Max. He’s everything Aiden isn’t and as much as I’m trying to fight my feelings, I’m losing. I don’t want to fight anymore.

I need to live my life.

I need to move on.

But in order to move forward I need to let go of the past.

Title: Breaking Noah
Author: Missy Johnson & Ashley Suzanne
Publisher: Loveswept
Release Date:  May 12, 2015



What happens when you start falling for your worst enemy? Fans of Abbi Glines and Monica Murphy will relish this addictive novel of smoking-hot seduction—and revenge gone so wrong, it’s right.

I wasn’t always this jaded. I had a clear head, things I wanted out of life, and a concise plan on how to get there. For being only twenty-one, I pretty much had it all figured out. Until the day my cousin died.

I spent months going over all the details surrounding her death, trying to figure out how I missed the signs, and the only thing I could come up with was she would still be alive if it wasn’t for one person: her professor. So I transferred to his college, enrolled in his class, and set my new plan in motion.

First I’ll seduce him. Then I’ll ruin him. I’ve just got to stay strong and not let his charm and my emotions get the best of me. Because someone has to pay for her death. If it’s the last thing I do, I’m going to break Noah.

{Review} Wildcard: Volume 1 (Wildcard #1)

Wildcard: Volume One (Wildcard, #1)Wildcard: Volume One by Missy Johnson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

People have been telling me for a long time now to read a Missy Johnson book and I’m sorry I should have listened to them sooner. This was so good. The writing and the story flowed so easily I never wanted it to end. But it did and now I have ti wait for the next one, which by the way I will be reading. Must find out what happens next.

Started this story not knowing much about it and maybe that’s the best part of all. I like going into books blind; more enjoyable that way.

Ryder is such a bad boy in every way. He started off a little cocky for me and I didn’t think that he would grow on me. I was afraid I would have to put the book down. But I keep going. I thought he was going to end up with a certain chick, then bam – nope I was so wrong. So didn’t see that happening. He meets a chick just by reading a fan mail letter from an angry fan. Hehehe thought that I was quite clever there really.

As the book progressed I began to like Ryder more and more. Then the end of the novel due near and I totally fell in love with him, only to feel sorry for him. I can’t believe that happened and then nothing. I felt for him and now I need more of this mans story.
