Inside Bet by Katie Porter (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Today I would like to give a warm welcome to the writing duo, Katie Porter, who is joining us with their hot new release featuring sexy, alpha fighter pilots, Inside Bet!

Build Your Own Family
By Katie Porter

Inside Bet by Katie PorterJon in INSIDE BET is pretty badass. He’s an F16 pilot, grew up with money and likes fast cars. When he sees something he knows he wants, he goes after it. 

And Jon grew up with a pretty darn cruddy family. So he made himself a new one. 

When we set out to craft the Vegas Top Guns series, we knew we wanted to create a group of really tight friends. But we didn’t realize exactly how closely Jon would keep those friends close. He’s the type of guy who answers calls at two in the morning, and would go the extra distance for anyone he considers a friend. Loyalty is important to him—to the point that he’s gotten saddled with the call sign Tin Tin, as in Rin Tin Tin. Naturally, Jon the playboy fighter pilot, would much more prefer some sort of sexy, smart ass name. Not the name of a dog. 

But that’s what family means to Jon. And family is what Ryan and Leah are to Jon. They do potluck holidays and gift exchanges. Plus Jon would go to any length to take care of those he considers his: 

Maybe it was the sudden shift from forward motion to park that sparked Leah’s renewed nausea. She popped the passenger door open and swung her head outside. Heather didn’t need to look to know what came next. Listening was way plenty.
Jon gracefully unfurled from his sports car. He appeared to stroll as casually as always, hands stuffed in the pockets of his slacks, but he wore a tension across his shoulders that was easier to identify now.“So you made it, Princess Leah.”
Heather shut her door and came around to the passenger side in time to see Leah’s thumbs-up. “No problem, Rin Tin Tin. Got it covered.”
“Well, your shoes are covered.”
Leah wiped her mouth with her wrist. “Ugh.”
“Classy, Princess. Up you go.” He used those strong, lean arms to haul the increasingly dazed woman to her feet. “Where are your keys?”
“Ass pocket.”
“Then you fish them out.”
“Aw, Dimples, don’t want your girlfriend to watch you feel me up?”
Jon scowled. “First off, you smell like a tequila factory with a side of vomit. Second, I’m pretty sure feeling up a fellow officer is frowned upon.” He put her arm around his neck. “Hold on, dumbass. I’m not carrying you again.”
Heather grabbed both purses and locked up, following the pair toward a first-level apartment. Leah managed to fish her key out from skintight jeans, but Jon unlocked the door.

Double Down by Katie PorterFor Jon to get anywhere near vomit, you know he has to have really strong feelings for the person involved. Heather sees the truth of that later in the story—when she really starts to understand Jon’s possible depths. Unfortunately? That’s when she really starts to get scared. (Heather has her own issues, you see.) 

Up next for Katie Porter, the co-writing team of Carrie Lofty and Lorelie Brown: 

Now that both RT BookReviews 4½ Star Top Picks DOUBLE DOWN and INSIDE BET have been released, we're looking forward to the September 25th arrival of HOLD 'EM, featuring wild child Leah and a surprising reunion with a fellow pilot. The final two installments of the "Vegas Top Guns" series will follow in 2013. 

November brings the m/m Christmas-themed CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR, and in January, LEAD AND FOLLOW will launch the five-part “Club Devant” series of erotic multi-partner romances set in a hot New York City burlesque club.

  1. Loyalty is what says family to me. No matter how bad it gets and how nasty some arguments between family members can arise, when you are in trouble, it's family who backs you up unconditionally.

  2. I once received a birthday card from my dad that said

    "In every family, there is one person who is painfully normal.
    *opens card*
    We should really get one of those."

    Family is about accepting (not necessarilly loving) the people in it, warts and all.

  4. Shawny, that's priceless! My husband's favorite phrase is "everyone's normal until you get to know them." Thanks for stopping by, ladies. Enjoy!

  5. To me it's loyalty & love. When you never have to doubt those two that's family to me. Whether they are of blood or choice :)
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  6. It is loyalty and caring. I will always be there for my family.

  10. Loyalty and caring.

  11. thanks for a great post and congrats on the new release! coming from a family that was composed of all adopted children, I'd say that family is what you make of it... so love and commitment :)

  12. Loyalty says it the most for me.

  13. Family is people who care about you, who love you and help you. They are people who are loyal and caring and are your friends no matter how many stupid things you all do. A family does not need to be blood.

  14. The willingness to help and support each other.

  15. Family doesn't always mean blood. For me, it's unconditional love and loyalty. :)
