Blog Tour/Review ♥ Hit The Spot by J. Daniels ♥


Is this love or just a game?

Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and worst of all . . . the sexiest man she's ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he's around, she's determined not to be another meaningless hookup.

Jamie McCade always gets what he wants. The sickest wave. The hottest women. And Tori, with her long legs and smart mouth, is definitely the hottest one. He knows Tori wants him-hell, most women do-but she won't admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it's time for Jamie to raise the stakes.

Jamie promises that soon Tori won't just want him in her bed, she'll be begging for it-and he might be right. Somehow he's found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before. But with all she knows about his past, can she really trust what's happening between them? Is Jamie playing for keeps or just playing to win?

This book can be read as a stand-alone.

 4 Allowing Yourself to Have It All Stars
* * * *   
Spoiler Free

Tonight we are thrilled to present what you all have been waiting for... The Long Awaited Event of the Dirty Deeds circuit...The Love Match of Tori Rivera and Jamie McCade. You've heard of The Hunger Games...well, this promises to take that to a different emotional level...We introduce for the first time a complete unedited following of all the inner thoughts, desires and resolutions with our participants...Ground Breaking...So get ready for the experience to feel, argue, lust and swoon...

The Fight Game is about to begin...

All participants have shown interest in the other. There has been a past history between them which has laid the groundwork for the interaction. Although at times it may seem one or both participants are saying they have no interest in the other/pushing back from any confrontations, both have indicated they are interested and all is done with agreement, no matter how confusing it may seem at the time.

In the Red Trunks, Tori "Legs" Rivera:
Twenty Four year old Tori is coming off a past romantic season where the ex did not fight fairly. He was a married man who hid this while Tori was falling hard for him. He played her, toyed with her and she found out in the most distressing way, while at the mall. There he was with his wife and baby girl. When confronted, he pulled the inside punch of introducing Tori as a High School Friend.

Tori has regrouped and gone into training with the main focus of Never Being Played Again. She has the education, support system of her best gal, Syd and her man Brian, and the financial freedom to work at Whitecaps, a hip ocean front restaurant. She works there because it makes her happy.

It goes without saying Tori has everything any man would want...She has a body which is real, womanly and the confidence in the way she moves. Sweet face whether made up or not...and Sass for days. She is comfortable in her own skin and has no trouble turning offers down.

Her past experience with tonight's participant Jamie McCade has been up and down.

In the Blue Trunks, Jamie "The Player" McCade:
Twenty Eight year old Jamie is The Man on the Beach. He is an award winning Surfer who has had a rep of taking whatever he wanted with out any problems...He clearly has had any assortment of women, Experienced and Newly Fresh...all comers were welcomed. He used the disclaimer of no leading on... hook ups were what they were, etc. His brash, direct, often crass and lewd (Dirty Talking) way of communicating his wants was all his own. (Think Kristen Ashley Man Dialect but unique to Surfer with Sexual Overtones as Nouns and Verbs and Major Alpha Insistence )

Jamie has a solid family, brother and sister and cares deeply for them. His best bud is Brian and they own Wax, their surf shop. Jamie is at the top of the surf game and is sponsored by well known companies. He has had a pretty carefree life and only recently has been interested in participating in this event.

His past experience with Tori Riviera has been up and down... with him pursuing this Event with all of the patience and skill of a Heavy Weight. He has made some tactical errors in the ramp up.

In his first encounter with Tori, he disregarded the fact she out right told him she had a boyfriend when he approached...causing a blatant show of no respect for relationships or Tori. This has remained a sticking point for his opponent and one not easily forgiven.
He has made points, though, by standing with and backing Tori in her taken down of Ex. This has led to a type of truce between them.

For Tori-she will not allow herself to be another notch on his hookup belt... and it is a long and varied one.
She has the strength to talk to herself and fight the feeling for this opponent as he has heartache written all over him.

For Jamie-he wins: he wins in all the Surf Competitions, he wins in pursuit of anything he wants...and he wants the woman he has named as Legs...Biggest asset (besides being a walking dream with all the perfect parts, ah hm...) Jamie is patient... will dig in for what he wants... will play the waiting game and has for the last 9 months.

Both have seen the sweet soft spots in each other... the places they keep hidden away. This knowledge can cause moments of clarity for Jamie but for Tori, it confuses what she feels making her vulnerable.

Rules of the Event:
There really are none...Both of these participants have been playing cat and mouse for 9 months. They spare, tease, pursue (Jamie) and give sass, deny interest (Tori/Legs). The ramp up has been happening with numerous encounters, some friendly with Syd and Brian at the family dinners every Sunday.... some while helping their friends move in together... other times at WhiteCaps. Every time Jamie is the pursuer and Tori the object of his desire.

The Main Event:
This will be a Fight Game to the finish... These two are equally matched due to the extreme want of both of them...There will be unlimited Smexy times, Miscommunication, Seriously Swoon Worthy Moments too numerous to count and all of it brought to you by J. Daniels and the pacing of her writing.

Be prepared to be Shocked...
Be prepared to Fall Hard...
Be Prepared to want both parties to have their HEA...
And be prepared to be in the game as much as the players....

The event starts December 6th 2016 so make sure you have your tickets...
It is one hell of a Fight Game part of the Dirty Deeds Circuit...
This has been brought to you by an unsolicited observer who enjoyed the chance to view it early
This book can be read as a stand-alone.

A gifted copy was provided by author/publisher  for an honest review.


Hammerjacks was dimly lit and packed with bodies, some dancing together and others crowding the bar, waiting to get served. I started scanning the room as I came up beside Tori, who was doing the same even though she had no idea who she was looking for.

I saw Quinn almost instantly. She wasn’t hard to spot.

The bright pink spiked-out hair helped with that.

“There,” I said, pointing in the direction of the bar where my sister was sitting on a stool, head turned away from the group of shitheads swarming her.

She was alone. That pissed me off.

She was here, in town visiting, and she was looking for ass. That pissed me off, too.

Not much I could do about the second thing, I understood it, but she was gonna hear my feelings toward the other whether she wanted to hear them or not.

“What’s her name again?” Tori asked as we made our way over.

“Quinn,” I said.

She nodded, face serious. Then she tucked stray pieces of hair behind her ears and smoothed out the rest of her pony, pulled the one sleeve of her shirt down so it exposed her shoulder and bra strap, straightened her spine, tipped her chin up, and put on a smile before rushing ahead.

“Hey, sweetie. Sorry I’m late,” Tori chirped, squeezing in between my sister and the shitheads as if they weren’t standing there. She grabbed Quinn’s face, bent down, and kissed her cheek. “I missed you. Did you miss me?” she asked, bringing both hands to Quinn’s neck and holding there while standing between her bent knees.

Tori was smiling and playing the part, leaning close and making it seem like they were really together, or at least really feeling each other. My sister was blinking up at Tori, looking baffled but also looking like she was wanting to buy everything Legs was selling.

I wasn’t surprised. Quinn shared my taste in women. And I definitely had a taste for Legs.

“Whoa, are you two…damn. Is this your girl?” one of the shitheads asked from behind Tori, pointing at the back of her.

“Jesus,” another one chimed in, looking his fill. “What are the chances of me watchin’ you two go at it? This is fuckin’ hot.”

I stepped up then, not liking the tone of this guy and the shit coming out of his mouth, and wanting to make my presence known.

He saw me approach and shot me a hard look, asking, “You gotta problem?”


Teeth clenched and fists forming, I looked to Quinn, not taking the bait he was throwing out.

She was watching me, eyes serious and mouth tight, subtly shaking her head in warning ’cause she knew I couldn’t be fighting or doing anything that could draw negative attention. Then she turned her attention onto Tori when she twisted and slid into Quinn’s lap.

“Fishing in the wrong pond, boys,” Tori informed them, sweeping her gaze over the three while putting her arm around Quinn’s shoulders and pressing close. “Get lost. We’re not interested.” Then she turned all of her attention onto my sister and amped up her game, giggling as she kept her face close to hers and running her fingers through her hair, smiling, whispering, really flirting and looking into it, all while blocking the view of the shitheads so they couldn’t watch.

And everything Legs was doing, my sister was eating up.

Wrapping her arms around Tori and holding on to her, smiling back, laughing, looking like she was falling in love and thinking this was real and something sustainable.

I was starting to regret incorporating Tori into this plan. She was a little too good at her game. Straight up. Maybe the best at it.

I was also starting to get mildly jealous watching my sister getting attention from the one woman who was hell-bent on ignoring my ass.

“Man, whatever,” the one guy said, grabbing his beer and looking to his friends. “Come on. I’m not wastin’ my time on lesbian pussy.”

His friends murmured their agreement, mentioned something about hitting up Roy’s, a bar down the street, then grabbed their beers and stepped away.

When they were out of earshot, I shifted my eyes to Legs, telling her, “Think you sold it. You can get off my sister now.”

Tori smiled proudly, lifting her shoulders with a little dance. Then she looked to Quinn, keeping the smile, and said, “Hey, I’m Tori. Your brother dragged me here, so I figured I’d offer my assistance instead of letting him handle it, since he can’t fight and all.”

“Can fight, just shouldn’t,” I corrected her. I jerked my chin. “Hop off.”

Quinn moved her hands up Tori’s back and licked her lips. “Wicked plan,” my sister told her. “I was totally into that.”

“I think it got the point across,” Tori replied. “I really like your hair, by the way.” She ran her fingers through it again. “The color looks great on you.”


“Absolutely. It really makes your eyes pop.”

“I was thinking about going purple…”

“Have you tried bleaching the roots and just painting the color on the ends? I think that would look amazing with purple.”


“Legs,” I barked.

Both of their heads whipped around and faced my direction.

“You feelin’ like gettin’ up so we can get the fuck outta here?” I asked, thinking only about the food back at her place I was wanting to eat and not about how comfortable my sister’s hands looked gripping on to Tori’s body.

“She’s fine,” Quinn offered, keeping her hands locked around Legs. “Really. She doesn’t have to move.”

I shot a glare at Quinn, communicating how I felt about that suggestion, then shifted that glare to Tori.

“I was getting up. Relax. We were just talking,” she huffed, moving off Quinn’s lap and coming to stand beside me. “You’re welcome, by the way,” she murmured.
