Blog Tour, Review & Excerpt ~ Endorsed by Marni Mann


Endorsed by Marni Mann 
Publication Date: April 5th, 2018 
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Book Description:

My client’s younger sister is off-f***ing-limits.
Getting my first big client signed to the NFL was the second best moment of my life. Escorting his sister back to her hotel was the first. Imagining what she would feel like, look like, taste like—none of it was as good as the real thing.
If her brother found out, it would destroy my career, so I ended things between us.
Eight years later, the girl who got away still owns me.
First, I’ll make her forgive me, and then I’m going to make her mine.
He’s owned my body for far too long.
It’s been years since he touched me, and my skin still remembers every brush, stroke, and thrust. I want to forget how good it felt. Almost as much as I want to do it again.
We can’t finish what we started until I make my confession.
I have a secret—one that wasn’t mine to keep.
Before he can love me, he’ll have to find some way to forgive me.

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4 stars
**ARC received for an honest review***

“Out of all the endorsements I’ve ever gotten, you just gave me the best one.”

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Marni Mann, sometimes when you read an author for the first time, you just click. You click with their style, their sense of humour and the way they effortlessly string a sentence together with such emotion that you cannot help but be touched. Marni Mann has that effect on me and since the first time I read one of her books, about five years ago, I have been hooked ever since and read everything she has written.

Endorsed is the second book following the owners of The Agency, a management agency that covers the needs of actors, musicians and sports stars. This is the niche area that I work in, so having a book that I can relate to, only makes the subject matter that much more enjoyable. Although these are all under the same umbrella, Endorsed can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend that you read, Signed too, as that book was just as good as this one.

“He was healing me with his body, the same way I wanted to heal him with my words.”

Endorsed is the turn of our Sports Agent, Jack. When Jack first started The Agency with his friends, he knew that the choices he made in the beginning would be the catalyst to how professional and successful he would be perceived to be, and falling in love with his first big client’s little sister was not the way to go about things. However, sometimes, the temptation is too great, at least for just one night…

Samantha Cole has been career driven, focusing all her time and attention on making a name for herself without piggybacking on her brother’s name. She has had other responsibilities that leave no time for men. Her lack of male companionship though is not just because of her responsibilities, one night with her brother’s agent saw to that.

Now eight years later, their paths cross once again, their chemistry is still ever present, but will the one night they had, be the only one? With an acrimonious ending to their one night, secrets kept, and choices made for the perceived greater good, do these two really stand a chance once again?

“You're the one that got away.”
“You let me.”
“I want you back.”

While I did find this story a little predictable, in no way did this detract from my thorough enjoyment of how they got there in the end. Marni Mann is one of the queens of heat and this book will definitely have you fanning yourself and your ovaries combusting with just how awesome this couple are. It was great to catch up with the other members of The Agency and I cannot wait for the next book in this series. There is never a dull moment, that is for sure.


When my hand wasn’t on the gearshift, it was on her thigh. Her skin was hot. Tight. But it didn’t give me the heat I was after, so I went to search for it, dragging my fingers higher on her leg. My thumb then dipped below the hem of her dress, tracing a small pattern over her flesh. “Samantha, I need you to do something for me.” She took a breath that ended with the softest moan. “Okay.” “I need you to shift when I tell you to.” “Why?” “Because I need one hand on the steering wheel while the other is inside your cunt.” “Jack…” “Shift into third.” She quickly reached across my arm, grabbing the gearstick and moving it like I’d asked her to. My fingers climbed several inches higher, feeling the space widen as she spread her legs apart. “Now, go to second.” As I rose to the outside of her pussy, I expected to feel her panties. There was nothing. Just a bare pussy and a clit that needed me to rub it. “Jesus,” I hissed. “Neutral. Shift right now.” We were coming to a stop at the red light. Before the car completely slowed, my pointer finger traced around her entrance to wet the tip, and I slid right in. “Oh my God,” she groaned. “Your hands.” She’d missed them. They’d missed her. And she was about to get a hell of a lot more.
