Hey crew. I’m about to shout from the rooftops!!! The very sweet, humble, funny as all get out, little bit flirty and even more dirty *winks*, but most of all who I am honored to call a friend, HEIDI MCLAUGHLIN stopped by Flirty and Dirty. Oh yeah!!! And we have some fun for you including a coveted excerpt from book #3 in the Beaumont Series!!!! You did not read the wrong. We’ve got it!!! Check out the author interview, an interview with Harrison and Quinn, as well as my review for My Unexpected Forever!
We also have a special interview from two of my favorite books boys. Be sure to leave a comment about what you thought of today’s spotlight and I’ll give away some books. *insert SQUEEING* here.
So let me start off by saying how much I seriously love Heidi McLaughlin. Yes I’m professing my love for her. She is so down to earth and real and if you have read any of her books you can see that through her writing. The Beaumont Series isn’t just any rock series. This is what makes them one of my top rock series ever. The loyalty and strong family ties in these books make them just as swoon worthy as her book boys. And ladies, let me tell you her book boys *sigh* I could have a few weeks to talk and gush about them.
Her latest release MY UNEXPECTED FOREVER is amazeballs!!! I warn you to have some Kleenex at the ready. Harrison will melt your heart and your panties.
Check out the synopsis and my review for it here.
Synopsis My Unexpected Forever:
I expected a life of music.
I expected to raise my son.
It took one look to make everything change.
I never expected happiness.
I never expected to find her.
I never expected to feel desire.
I never expected I’d be a family man.
I never expected to be loved.
I never expected to fall in love.
They say you should expect the unexpected, I didn’t realize my unexpected would be the forever kind.

I know everyone thought they met their quintessential rock boy in Liam with all his schmexy Liam Page persona melded with his down home family goodness in Liam Westbury, but let me tell you Harrison takes this title without question. Not only is this rock boy divine with his sticks when he bangs out a rhythm but he wears his heart on his sleeve with a loyalty that is as fierce as a spring hurricane. There are subtle details that McLaughlin repeats throughout the story that solidify Harrison’s character. Even the cover of the book holds so much meaning and visual poetry. These details give My Unexpected Forever sincerity and thoughtfulness. I have to say that McLaughlin’s strong notion of family and children heavily woven throughout the story is a big draw for me. I absolutely love how the children are a driving force in some of the chapters and ultimately the story line. Although Harrison is a rocker, props go to McLaughlin for not overly relying on this to fulfill the obligation of the overall story. In other words, My Unexpected Forever is full and beautifully complete without using the simple fact of hot, tatted up book boy as the feature. There is so much more to Harrison and this story that are beyond the schmexy factor. The words are heartwarming, loving and the idea of wanting the best for you and your family is something we all can relate to and strive to attain throughout our lifetime. The Beaumont Series is fast becoming one of my favorites as is Heidi McLaughlin. I am eagerly anticipating her next book. This series is one that should definitely be on your TBR. D 5/5
All right I know y’all aren’t going to be patient so here is my interview with Harrison and his sweet as pie son Quinn…
Hey you two. Thanks for coming by for a visit? The both of you are pretty popular. Little man, the ladies love you.
So Quinn. We’re gonna ask both you and your dad some questions and just hang out. What do you think about that?
He just gave me the best smile you could ever receive. Ladies he’s going to be a heartbreaker.
OMG! Ladies be jealous. I’m sitting here with the cutest guy ever. His dad’s not so bad either. *winks*
All right let’s get to it.
D- So how are y’all adjusting to living in Beaumont? I’m sure it’s a big change from L.A.
Harrison: It’s a huge change, but has been worth it. I’m at ease knowing Quinn is having a normal childhood and getting to grow up with kids his age.
Quinn: I like going to school. I’ve made a lot of friends, but I have chores now which aren’t so cool.
Quinn what do you think about your dad being a drummer and in a famous band? Do you want to be a musician or famous?
Quinn: I don’t know it’s always been like this. He works less now though, since we moved to Beaumont and I like that. My dad taught me to play the guitar and drums, maybe someday I’ll have a one man band or something.
D: somehow I odn’t doubt you could rock that and own it.
D: Harrison, what do you love most about being a dad?
Harrison: Seeing him smile every day. (Harrison ruffles Quinn’s hair)
D: What’s your favorite thing to do with your dad Quinn?
Quinn: Well it’s not mowing the lawn that’s for sure. (Quinn looks at his dad). * everyone laughs* We’ve been jamming a lot and that’s fun, but we still have just us time and we usually go for a ride on his bike or take my grandma out to lunch.
D: Your grandma is a special lady.
Quinn: Yeah. She is. I love her lots.
D: So tell me. It’s kind of just been the two of you for so long. How are you making out with having such a big family now? With Josie, Liam and Noah. Then there’s Kate and the girls.
Quinn: Miss Denise don’t let Katelyn hear you call her Kate, she throws things at my dad when he does that.
D: Shit! I mean shoot. Quinn don’t tell her I called her that. I totally forgot.
Harrison: having a large family is great. We’re always at each other’s houses and the kids are always together. They look out for each other.
Quinn: I like having sisters. Peyton and Elle are different, so even though they look alike, we do different things together. Their dad had a tree house in the backyard, but it was falling apart so my dad and Grandpa Powell rebuilt it. Peyton and I play in there. And Elle makes me help her practice her cheerleading moves. I’m always on the bottom of the tower.
Harrison: The house is never quiet and I wouldn’t change that for anything.
D: Harrison what’s one wish you have for Quinn?
Harrison: That he grow up and be a man that he can be proud of.
D: I have absolutely no doubt he will become that man when he has you as his role model and dad.
Harrison: I’m just trying to raise him with the respect my mom raised me with
D: Quinn if there’s one thing you could tell your dad right now, what is it?
Quinn: That I’m really happy he’s my dad and that I love him. Wait that’s two things…
D: I’m pretty sure we can allow for two. *winks*
D: So crew. I have to change this question up a little bit because we have this handsome little devil with us…
D: Quinn tell us one funny thing about you and one serious thing about you that no one really knows about. Harrison same question. And ladies I’ll ask him the big important question later. *winks*
Quinn: oh man I have to give out my secrets. Okay my serious thing would be there’s a girl at school that I like. And my funny thing would be would Peyton is being a pill, I swap out her cereal so she pours the wrong kind.
Harrison: That’s you?
Harrison: My funny would be I use Katelyn’s hair products so she’ll yell at me and I can make it up to her. My serious would be that I’m madly in love with you, Denise. Will you have my babies?
D: *blushes and punches him in the arm* Ladies he’s a charmer. Katelyn is so lucky to have him.
Okay, seriously… my serious would be – I visit Mason’s grave about once a month to let him know how his girls are doing.
D: I don’t think I have ever cried during an interview. Looks like this may be a first.
You two have made my heart melt. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today. We wish you all the best. Harrison keep rocking the beat. And Quinn just stay as cute as you are. Can I tell you ladies? Quinn gives the best hugs hands down. Yep be jealous. *laughs*
Ladies I promised you I would get you the flirty and the dirty on Harrison. Here’s what he told me. I’m pretty sure there are hearts breaking all over the world tonight because Harrison is one amazing guy, with an even more amazing heart. And his love for Katelyn and his family makes him absolutely a #1 guy.
Harrison’s flirty – he likes to pretend to pick Katelyn up when he meets her at the bar for a drink. His dirty – he likes to take her on long rides, on deserted roads, on his bike.
That man just owns the heart.
I also had the opportunity to interview Heidi!! I just love her. Check it out!!!
D: What made you choose to do a series on rock boys, especially being that there are many others out there?
H: I didn’t intend too. I started the book with Liam and thought about just doing his story, but when I introduced Harrison and Katelyn – it sort of morphed into more.
D: Are you a front man girl, a guitar girl or a drummer? You already know what I am. Lol
H: Drummer all the way. It’s sexy and the skill that it takes do bang those drums is remarkable. You know Drummers Do It Better
D: What do you find the most difficult about writing?
H: Making sure my storyline isn’t the “same” as someone else’s and making sure it’s fresh. I like mine to be more realistic and while a few may say Harrison’s wasn’t, believe me when I say that’s a true story – it happened to my friend, who is in a band, who was drugged by a groupie. Sad, but true.
D: Recently, there has been quite a bit of… let’s call it what it is… Bullying in the indie/author/blogging community. How do you deal with all the negative reviews (that are not constructively and respectfully given)?
H: I read them, respect them because everyone is entitled to their opinion, and file them away.
D: Is there anything that surprised you once you published and became an author?
H: I was surprised at how many people read the book and not only read, but created these amazing collages and sent them to me and added Liam and now Harrison to their boyfriend lists. It’s crazy!
D: What is your favorite book or who is your favorite author?
H: I really don’t have any faves, horrible I know. I’ve read so many great books, it’s hard to say this one or that one is my favorite. Going back to my childhood, I loved Are you there God, it’s me Margaret.
D: How does your family deal with all those nights in the cave?
H: At first, not very well. Now they don’t mind it and I make sure it doesn’t interrupt family time. We sit down and watch certain shows together, or I’ll sit in the room while they watch a show, but write instead. Most of my writing is done after 9 when everyone’s gone to bed.
D: We wouldn’t be flirty and dirty if we didn’t ask… Tell us one flirty thing about you and one dirty thing about you.
H: Lol. Oh my no pressure here!
Can I plead the fifth?
Bypass and come back later?
D: *shakes head* Nope. No getting out of this one.
Lord have mercy… dirty – smut city – love to read it. My flirty – I love to stare at a very good looking man, even if he knows it. *no shame*
D: Girl I agree with your flirty. It’s a great pastime to have *winks* As for your dirty all the ladies here agree I’m sure. Thank you so much for taking time out for us. We can’t wait for your next release. Speaking of that, ladies I have an excerpt from the third book in the Beaumont Series. Yes I accept chocolate and vodka as thank yous. *winks* Just kidding. Here it is…
She catches me staring. It’s not the first time and it probably won’t be the last. I want carnal knowledge of her body and if I don’t get it soon I’m going to spontaneously combust. I want to feel her wrapped around my dick while I grind into her. She’ll want me to stay and I’ll want to say goodbye.
One night – that’s all I need – nothing more, nothing less. There’s nothing wrong with two adults giving into heated passion to fulfill one’s needs and desires. She may not need me, but after a minute with me, she’ll be begging for me to take her. I have no doubt she’ll satisfy my hunger. She’ll quench my thirst. Then I can move on. I can get her out of my system and go about my business. No one needs to know. No one can find out.
She walks to the bar. The barman flirts with her. It’s enough to make my blood boil. Is he her type? If so, I’m out of the running. He’s tall, lanky and looks like he plays basketball. The only thing I can play is her body and I know damn well I’ll be able to make her sing with the touch of a finger. The barman hands her a napkin and I have no doubts it probably has his number scrawled on it. He wants to take her on a date. I want to fuck her.
I down my whisky and coke and decide to take my chance. She can turn me down, I’ll be okay, but I don’t think she will. I’ve seen her watch me. I know that look. I’ve seen her undressing me, wondering what I have hiding under my jeans. If I play my cards right, I’ll be able to show her.
Let’s hope this is coming real soon.

Book Title: What’s Left of Me
Author: Amanda Maxlyn
Release date: December 13, 2013
Cover Designer: Mae I Design and Photography
What’s Left of Me Blog Tour Event on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/events/1387178484847986/
Life works in mysterious ways.
Four years ago I became known as the girl with cancer.
I refuse to cry.
And I refuse to give in.
A relationship with a man is the last thing I’m looking for right now, but one night with Parker changes everything. He is persistent, and he knows what he wants. Me.
He doesn’t treat me like I’m fragile.
But he doesn’t know, and I’m not ready to tell him.
What if it changes everything?
Tragedy found me when I was seventeen.
Love found me when I was twenty-one.
My name is Aundrea McCall, and this is my journey.
~~What’s Left of Me Teaser~~
I’m grateful when I reach the door to the ladies room that there isn’t anyone around. I reach for the handle when I hear from behind me, “Not going to use the men’s room again?” I know that sexy voice. It’s the same one as earlier this evening in this same area.
With my heart picking up pace, I turn around smiling sweetly, “No, I’m going to sit down and pee this time.” My smile spreads a little wider and I say a silent thanks to sweet baby Jesus for letting me find my voice this time.
He doesn’t respond. He just steps closer to me with the corner of his lips spreading upward.
I don’t breathe.
I can’t breathe. Not when he is this close.
God he smells amazing. Like a mixture of spice and mint. Maybe a hint of beer too. It’s the type of scent that would awaken a primal desire within any female, and good God do I feel awakened.
“You ran off before I could thank you for the dance earlier.” No, thank you. His voice is a faint whisper and his face is now so close that our noses are almost touching. I glance down at his very attractive red lips just as the corners of his mouth move up into the most beautiful smile. Shit. He knows I’m looking at his lips.
I’m transfixed by him. In this very moment, I would do whatever he said or answer to any name he called; even if it was one of those fluffy names like baby or princess. All I can think about is the desire flowing through my body for those lips to be on mine. I would take him in this hallway. There I said it. Or, did I think it?
I look back at his lips.
I lick my own.
I can’t think about anything but wanting to feel his lips against mine. All thoughts go out the window of me not being able to pick up a man at a bar. I don’t care, but I will say any cheesy pick up line if it means I get to go home with him.
I know he’s watching me. He has to be thinking about my lips too because just then his tongue comes out licking his own. I try to think of something else to do, but nothing comes to mind. I feel him close the distance between us. He puts a finger under my chin for the second time tonight lifting my face so I’m looking right into his eyes. Without taking his eyes off mine he speaks in a quiet, low, raspy whisper, “I’m going to kiss you now.”
Without waiting for my permission, his lips crash down against mine. He takes my top lip into his mouth tugging ever so gently. I let out a soft moan as his tongue lightly traces my lips- tasting me. I can smell the fresh mint and beer off his breath and all I can think about is tasting it. I grab his neck brining him closer -opening my mouth- inviting him in. He groans as I wrap my arms around his neck running my hands through his hair.
Shit, if I die tomorrow, I can die a happy woman knowing this was my last kiss.
His tongue enters my mouth and I meet it with my own. He reaches down to lift me up and I let him. I wrap my legs around his waist just as he slams my back against the wall in the corner of the hallway. There’s a rush of pain that shoots down my legs causing me to cry out. He must take that as a cry of pleasure because he kisses me harder.
I feel my dress rise all the way to my waist exposing myself for anyone that walks by. My head falls back against the wall and he immediately starts kissing down my chin to my neck, then up to my earlobe bringing it into his mouth biting down. “Do you want to get out of here?” He whispers so softly into my ear I almost don’t think I hear him correctly. When he asks me again I just nod in agreement. Afraid if I were to say anything it wouldn’t be yes, and I really want it to be yes.
Setting me down, he runs his hands over my dress laying it back into place, then grabs my hand and starts speed walking away heading towards the red exit sign.

Meet the Author:
My name is Nikki Narvaez. I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX, where I currently live with my husband, our two dogs, Bella and Oreo, and our cat, Cupcake. I have been teaching for four years, but I hope to become a full-time writer and stay at home mom one day. I am 27 years old, and have three older sisters who have blessed me with four nephews and one niece. In my free time, I love to write and play Texas Hold ‘Em poker.
We went back upstairs to our room, where Brielle headed straight for the balcony doors, opening them and letting the crisp, ocean breeze flow into our room. She walked out and propped her arms on the banister of the balcony railing as she gazed out over the sea.
I walked up behind her, wrapping my arms around her, placing them on top of hers and pressing our bodies together. Her emotions were everywhere, consisting of concern, fear, anger, and guilt. I rubbed her arms, letting my touch wash over her in an attempt to erase the feelings plaguing her. She leaned back into me as she sighed, “Jace, I -”
“Shh, mi amante,” I whispered in her ear, cutting her off. “Don’t worry about anything right now. Let’s enjoy this last bit of peace together before we are thrown back into chaos.”
Surprisingly, she didn’t try to argue. Her body relaxed against me and she pulled my arms to wrap around her waist before laying hers on top of mine. Our bond thrived as we held one another, the electricity humming over our skin and cocooning us in our love while drowning out the rest of the world until there was nothing but us.
I dipped my head down before grazing my lips along Brielle’s neck. Every feeling was intensified with our connection so intricately synchronized, and I could feel our desire increasing with each intoxicating touch.
My hands traveled to her sides before trailing under her shirt to touch her silky skin. They moved upwards to capture her supple breasts, the nipples of which were already hardened with arousal.
Her hands had made their way to the back of my head, fisting themselves in my hair as my mouth laved her delicate neck. My cock stiffened with desire from the sensations of touching and tasting her, pressing against her ass as soft moans escaped her.
I trailed one of my hands down her stomach before slipping under the waistband of her shorts and beneath the lacy fabric of her panties. Her sex was drenched with her desire, and I let my fingers play within her moist, delicate folds. I bit her earlobe lightly as I growled, “Fuck, you are so wet for me already, baby.”
She moaned again as continued to intricately trace my fingers along her pussy. Gods, I wanted to taste her desire so badly. I spun her around, moving my hands to unbutton her shorts and pull them off before removing her panties. She went for my jeans, but I pushed her hands away and shook my head as I rumbled, “I wanna taste you, baby; need to taste how much you want me before I fuck you.”
I grabbed her hips and propped her on the railing of the balcony before kneeling before her and gripping her hips to keep her from falling. I pulled her closer, until her ass was on the edge of the railing before draping each of her legs over my shoulders and giving her a mischievous smirk, “Hold on.”
My tongue slowly traced the insides of her thighs, which were damp with her desire. I greedily savored her sweetness as I slowly inched closer to her apex. I took my time, slowly licking within her folds and nibbling her clit. I pulled and teased it with my teeth as she writhed against me before plunging my tongue within her core. She moaned loudly as more of her nectar flooded my mouth, her pussy already pulsing around my tongue as she neared orgasm.
I moved my hands from her hips to her ass, gripping tightly and pulling her closer as I devoured her, my tongue delving deep inside until she shuddered her release against my mouth. I eagerly suckled the rest of the sweet juices from her sex, licking it clean before I stood. I kept my hands supporting her as she slowly eased off the railing and stood on shaky legs.
I was far from done with her. Just in case we might not make it out of the Underworld, I wanted to savor every second I had with her, and I was going to spend the rest of the day doing exactly that.
I stripped off her shirt, tossing it to the deck of the balcony with the rest of her clothes before inching her back against the railing, pressing my body against hers. She hurriedly pulled my shirt off before undoing the button of my shorts and sliding them down my legs, along with my boxer-briefs.
I turned her around before pushing her down until she was bent over the railing. I spread her legs apart from behind as I eased my cock to her slick entrance. She groaned as I slowly entered her, clutching the railing with both hands as I began to thrust inside her. One of my hands held onto her hip, and the other trailed up her back to grab her hair, which had curtained over her shoulders and spread down her back, her head tilted upwards while moaning my name. I grunted, “You like that, baby? Like when I fuck you like this?”
Her cries of pleasure grew louder as she moaned, “Yes, baby. I love it when you fuck me!”
Damn, she was so sexy when she sounded like that. All the noises emanating from her were slowly unraveling my control, especially when combined with the amazing sensations of our bond. As I felt my release approaching, I stopped, wanting to watch her face as I made her come. I carefully turned her over, supporting her body, making sure to stay within her warmth as her legs were wrapped around me and her back was against the railing.
I resumed my thrusts, bracing one hand on the railing while the other gripped her ass as I plunged in and out of her. I leaned down to take her breast in my mouth as my gaze traveled up to her face. She arched against me, supporting herself on the balcony with her elbows while moans of pleasure escaped her open mouth as her eyes closed in ecstasy.
Her pussy throbbed around me as we both neared climax. I pulled her off the balcony and carried her to our bed, laying her down on the edge and inching her back until we reached the center of the mattress. I resumed my thrusts as I claimed her mouth, our tongues joining instantly as we devoured one another. Our hands frantically roamed over each other’s bodies as Brielle took me deeper and deeper into her center, taking everything I was giving her.
Her pussy tightened around my shaft as she climaxed. The throbbing of her walls against my cock and her throaty moans sent me into ecstasy, my cum coating her walls with my release. I rolled to my side, panting heavily to catch my breath, but Brielle continued to roll us until she was on top of me with my dick still enclosed inside her.
Her hair was wild with damp curls and sweat glistened over her skin. She looked down at me through hooded eyes, causing my cock to harden again. “My turn.”

Attracting, compelling, colliding, their chemistry–to say the least–was explosive. He felt it the first time he laid eyes on her…
On the heels of college graduation and the unexpected death of her mother, Emily Cooper moves to New York City to join her boyfriend for a fresh start. Dillon Parker has been sweet, thoughtful, and generous through Emily’s loss, and she can’t imagine her life without him–even as her inner voice tells her to go slow.
Then she meets Gavin Blake. A rich and notorious playboy, Gavin is dangerously sexy and charming as hell. Their first encounter is brief, but it’s enough to inflame Emily’s senses. When their paths cross again through an unexpected mutual acquaintance, she tries to deny the connection she feels, but Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome won’t let go so easily.
As she discovers Gavin’s pain-filled past and Dillon’s true nature begins to surface, Emily knows she must take action or risk destroying everyone—including herself. But how can she choose when she can’t trust her own heart?
“Do you know how scary it is to want something so bad you’re willing to change your whole life for it?”
Emily Cooper is ready to risk everything to be with the man who has consumed her thoughts and dreams since the fateful day they met. Unraveling fast, she can only cling to the hope that Gavin Blake still wants her.
Nursing his wounded heart, Gavin has cut himself off from society and retreated into a self-destructive, mind-numbing world. Emily isn’t used to being the strong one, but she’ll have to find the daring and confidence within to fight for their love and bring Gavin back from the edge—even if it means losing herself to their all-consuming, pulse-pounding passion.
A New York Times bestseller, Pulse is the unforgettable conclusion to the story of Emily and Gavin that began with Collide.

About the author:
I’ve always been a lover of writing, but mostly dabbled in creative poetry while raising my three beautiful children. I am grateful that my husband of fifteen years has supported me—albeit sometimes kicking and screaming—as I pursue this “hobby” of mine. Without his help, writing would be an impossible endeavor.
In late June 2012, I felt an urgent tug of my pen, and I began writing one of my first novels, Collide. Although I thought it might never see the light of day, it gave me the courage to plunge headfirst onto a path I had never considered before.
