Reader’s Edyn

I always felt like I could do something more than just read. Finally, I have found both a creative outlet and a chance to do something meaningful with my reading. This blog was created in appreciation of and tribute to all of the authors who have brought me joy through their books. These reviews are my way of giving back to authors and providing recognition for the hard work that each one completes every day!

Spotlight and Appearance with author Sabrina York

Spotlight and Appearance with author Sabrina York

Whoot whoot! What’s up my crazy and loyal followers! I have to tell you how beyond ridiculously excited I am today. I have back with us Ms. Sabrina York. You all know how much I adore her. And she gives me props in this post. Totes unnecessary but can I tell you how great I felt when I read this post as I was creating it? And I even got acknowledgement in her book. I mean how frickin awesome is it to see your own name in print because of an author’s gratitude?!?!?! I cannot explain it. I have had acknowledgement before, but that author was a friend so it was different. No less spectacular, but not exactly the same. This time I fell like this past year of blogging and reviewing were all just made worth it in one move by a truly spectacular woman. I do not know Ms. York, just our correspondence whenever she has been on the blog and my reviews of her books. For her to recognize me for my reviews just … well, I can’t even explain it. My heart is happy. *sighs and slowly makes my way off of the cloud** So today is truly a special day for me and the blog. With pleasure, please allow me to reintroduce to the blog, the talented and awesome:



Sabrina is an award winning author of erotic romance with nearly a dozen titles available, ranging from sweet & sexy erotic romance to BDSM to erotic horror. Connect with her on her website, twitter @sabrina_york or Facebook.

**Man Hungry**

Kendra, I am so excited to be here today to celebrate with you. 

When my first book came out last April, you were one of my first blog stops—and you were so incredibly sweet to me. You were also one of my first reviews. I can’t tell you how exciting it was to watch Adam’s Obsession climb the charts because of endorsements from reviewers like you!

I celebrated, of course. And tried to thank my readers for their support every chance I got.
If you aren’t familiar with my work, check out my books and read an excerpt on my webpage ( or explore on Amazon or at Ellora’s Cave.

Today I am celebrating the release for my sexy funny short story, Man Hungry, the tale of what happens when two practical jokers are matched up on a blind date. This book was so much fun to write, I just had to share. It’s a really quick, fun read. I’ve attached the blurb and excerpt below so you get a taste!

MAN HUNGRY is an Ellora’s Cave Quickie, so be ready for a wild ride with lots of action—and ultimate satisfaction—packed into a sizzling short story.

I also wanted to let you know that I have an exciting new book coming out in April, REBOUND, which I have talked about below.

**Book One; Tryst Island Series**


Fall in Love on Tryst Island…

When a group of friends share a vacation house, wild hijinks, unexpected hook-ups and steamy sex ensue. And true love. Did I mention they all find true love? And steamy sex?

Kristi Cross has had the hots for her friend, Cameron Jackson as long as she could remember, but she knows she’s not his type. She’s nothing like the women he dates. So when he suggests they play for a kiss over a game of Hearts, Kristi can’t resist. Even if she loses, she wins. Because she’s finally going to taste him.

 Of course, one kiss can quickly become something altogether steamier, especially when both parties are on the rebound…




Blind dates are hell. At least that’s what Justin thinks before he’s set up with Jessica, a sizzling-hot schoolteacher who captures his heart—or at least his lust—at first sight. He can’t let their date fail so he does what any sane, rational prankster would do—he pretends he’s there to meet someone else. A man-hungry schoolmarm.

Jessica knows full well that Justin is her date, so she decides to have a little fun and show him exactly how man hungry a “schoolmarm” can be. And Jessica’s hunger is all for Justin. On the dance floor, atop a table, up against a door…she just can’t get enough.

“You’ve got to save me.”
Jessica blinked as the most gorgeous man she’d ever seen slipped into her booth and grabbed her hand. She barely registered the intrusion. His grasp was that warm.
“I beg your pardon?” She lifted her voice above the blare of the band. It was a country band and a country bar—not her preference but a girl had to do what a girl had to do to meet a decent guy.
“Please. You look like a compassionate soul.” His crooked grin, ringed as it was by a scruffy beard, made rivulets of excitement trickle down her spine, as did the tantalizing dent in his chin. His eyes, large and brown and fringed with long, thick lashes, glinted with humor. A deep dimple sliced through one cheek. His Stetson, from which dark curls erupted, was tipped at a jaunty angle. He batted his lashes—a move that frankly should be against the law. “Can’t you find it in your heart to save me?”
His Dallas drawl made her mouth water—she’d always had a thing for cowboys with dented chins—but she stiffened her spine against his appeal.
She did not need another puppy dog lover. She’d had enough of those in her life. That’s why she was here. To meet her friend Penny’s staid, stick-in-the-mud lawyer cousin. A guy she could have a future with. Who liked country music. And country bars.
He was probably a Republican.
Good. She hoped he was.
She hoped he was a grown-up as well.
Nope. No more puppy dogs for her. She’d made an oath. And she was bone-tired of cleaning up their messes on the carpet. Against her will, her lips twitched. She did love those puppy dogs. And this one was damn cute.
She cleared her throat. It was clogged with arousal. “Save you from what?”
Her cute cowboy slash puppy dog shot a look around the crowded bar and hunkered lower like an outlaw hiding from the sheriff. “The dreaded man-hungry spinster.”
A laugh bubbled through her. As pickup lines went, at least his was original. And entertaining. She lifted her beer to disguise her amusement.
“Oh. Sorry.” His gaze danced back to hers. “I meant to say the dreaded man-hungry spinster schoolmarm.” He offered a charming, self-effacing grin.
Jessica stilled, bottle halfway to her mouth. She was a spinster schoolmarm. Well, an unmarried teacher at least. Close enough.
The cowboy leaned in. His warm breath skated across her cheek. It was all she could do not to nestle right up against him. Melt, maybe. “Just dance with me. Please? One dance before I have to resign myself to the misery of a blind date?”
Jessica’s belly lurched. “You’re meeting a blind date?”
Oh. Crap. So was she. She was a spinster schoolmarm here to meet a blind date.
Oh. He couldn’t be Justin. Could he? She narrowed her focus on his face, nearly distracted by the lazy droop of his lids, the full lips, his scent as it wafted toward her every time he moved. He didn’t look like the guy in the tux down the line from Penny in her wedding photo, the guy with the short-cropped hair and formal posture.
The stodgy lawyer.
Her attention snagged on his jawline and a shiver raced through her. She had a thing for a hard, square, dented chin. Yeah, his hair was longer, he was definitely scruffy and he was dressed in a very unlawyerlike long-sleeved t-shirt, jeans and cowboy boots. But she’d recognize that chin anywhere.
“Ho yeah.” He nodded and an unruly curl escaped onto his forehead. “My cousin’s friend.” He sent her a pleading look. “Did I mention she’s a schoolteacher?”
Certainty stirred in her gut—along with the little demon of mischief that lived there. He was Justin, her date.
He just didn’t know it.
Oh, this was going to be fun.

Two people with complete misconceptions about one another. And one knows the truth. Mischievous side? I say fun side! Definitely going to be reading this one as well. AAAANNNNDDDD???????? Did I tell you or did I tell you? I mean that excerpt had to grap you. You know it did! But if you are still not quite sure, remember that MAN HUNGRY is a novella. Or those of you who don’t know, a novella is a short story which translates to a very quick read – generally an hour or two at the most. Want a bigger taste of Ms. York to see if she is a goof fit or you? Then MAN HUNGRY is the perfect choice. I am confident in saying that you will all love it and then be compelled to buy REBOUND. *wink* So git to it and read!!!

I would like to thank Ms. York once again for taking the time to write a post for us as well as drop in and spend some time. I hope that you all enjoyed getting to know about Ms. York and her books. I hope you will support her and buy copies of her books for yourself. After all, what better way to support an author? Have a wonderful day and until next time …
