REVIEW: BLOOD TYPE By USA Today Bestselling Author K.A. LINDE @AuthorKALinde @Inkslingerpr

 

 

BLOOD TYPE image001 (1)[145992].png BC.png

 

 

A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.

Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.

REVIEW:

This is book one of Beckham and Reyna story, set in a world where after the financial collapse people are starving. Vampires have come out of the closet, and now control most of the government. Reyna as a last resort applies to for Vistage a vampire controlled company. Reyna applies as a blood escort so she can afford to eat.
Reyna is paired with Becks as a permanent arrangement. Reyna life changes over night, clothes, credit card, money and food. All she has to do is stay out of danger. This is where Reyna drove me mad, always running off and getting into danger. How many times does Becks say, stay by my side it is dangerous in here.
I have to hand it to K.A. Linde I loved this book and cannot wait for the next one in the series. If you love a great paranormal then look no further.

 

 

 

That was the moment Beckham appeared in the doorway like a storm cloud.

Reyna straightened in her seat at the expression on his face. He walked across the room like a tightly coiled spring ready to explode.

“Ah Beckham, there you are,” Harrington said.

“Excuse me, William. I need to speak with Reyna. Alone.”

She hastened out of her seat and followed him around the corner. He tugged her straight through the kitchens, out the back door, down a corridor, and into a dead end. Then her back was slammed against the brick wall. His fist connected with the wall behind her, and she felt the wall shudder. Debris floated onto her shoulders.

“You left,” he growled.

“I . . .”

“No.” He pressed his finger to her lips roughly. She stopped breathing and just stared up into his eyes as dark as night. Her body trembled under the feral stare. “You left without me.”

The silence was weighted. All she could do was sit with their bodies nearly touching. His finger on her mouth. Her mind wandering to hellacious places.

“You are my subject. Can you imagine what it was like when I found you missing? When you turned up with three of my kind?” She shook her head minutely. He bared his teeth to her, and she shrank back. “These are meant to drink your blood. To drink you dry until there is nothing left of your body but a dry corpse. We are killers. We don’t hesitate. Just because we’re wearing suits and seem more like you . . . does not mean we are like you. We are not like you. They especially are not like you. The only way you get to the top of Visage is to be fucking ruthless, Reyna. Do you understand?”

“You’re . . . scaring me,” she whispered.

“Good.”

 

 

 

 

Reyna Carpenter and Beckham Anderson return in the exhilarating follow-up to the provocative paranormal romance Blood Type.

“It’s official—Sunniva Dee is the queen of unconventional, forbidden romance. Sunniva has twisted me all up, in the best possible ways, and I can’t wait for more.” – Amazon Top 100 Bestselling Author, Harloe Rae

“What a heart-wrenching tale Regretfully Yours turned out to be. I’m rubbing my chest even as I type this review. The author made me feel so many things. I smiled & frowned, giggled & glared, hoped & worried, melted & froze, and I loved & hated. My emotions are a hot mess and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.” – iScream Books

 

 

ADD TO YOUR GR SHELF → http://bit.ly/2G4UZRn

Our relationship was a sin, they said, but how can it be a sin to love so deeply?
She shouldn’t have listened to them.
Shouldn’t have left us behind.
You can’t help whom you love, and without Silvina, I didn’t give a damn.
A mafia prince without a cause is a rebel with nothing to lose.
My brother owned an adult entertainment studio.
He wanted me nowhere near it. Thankfully, his competition did.
I auditioned. Landed a contract.
It’s how I took my sins to a new level, my up-yours to la famiglia.
Until Silvina was kidnapped, and my world was thrown upside down.

 

REVIEW:

 Wow this book is much more than I thought it would be, it definitely not for the fainthearted. We have Silvana and Gioele from a mafia family who live are away from home and away from the madness of the family’s business.
The big issue that seemed to be they are first cousins, and their feelings for each other are more like lovers. Silvana is trying to live her as normal as possible at college. I not judging anything, but it has never been taboo in England so it is harder for me to understand. I don’t want to give anything away, but that becomes the last thing she has to be worried about.
This so much more going on in this book, and certainly written so well you can feel all fear that Silvana has to go through. In fact the whole book is written so well, you are pulled into the story straight away. Then pulled through the ringer of emotions and then thrown out at the end feeling bereft. Even though we have great ending.

About the Author:

 
I’m a lover of everything beautifully written no matter the genre.
As an author, I pen flawed characters. I seek the flip side where the soul hides, and once there, I want to be pulled out of my comfort zone by stories that take on a life of their own.
I’ve committed paranormal and young adult books. I’ve done contemporary romance verging on erotica, and I’ve dabbled in supernatural mystery. But my heart is anchored in new adult of the true kind: unapologetic young adult that’s all grown up, with conflicts and passions familiar to college-aged readers and people who remember those days like they happened last night.

love 4_amazon[142318].jpg BC

 

Jonathon Turner is going to be the death of me.

Maybe not the death of me…but my panties for sure! They seem to disintegrate the moment he touches me. Looks at me. Smiles at me. Talks to me.

It’s more than physical. He’s breaking through an impenetrable wall.

There’s a problem though—he’s younger than me.

Six. Years. Younger.

Let’s not forget he’s also one of my brother’s best friends.

Oh, the other problem I forgot to mention…

I never wanted to fall in love again.

But you know what they say….never say never.

REVIEW:

This is the first book in this series that I’ve read, and it won’t be the last. This book gripped from start to finish

Waylynn has been deeply hurt by her lying, cheating ex-husband and she has vowed that she will not fall in love again. Jonathon is attracted to Waylynn and is determined to see where their relationship could lead them. One problem he has to get past the biggest stumbling block to his plan, Waylynn. She is attracted to him and although the chemistry is sizzling between them, she cannot get past the fact that he is 6 years younger than her and her brother Cord’s best friend.

Can Jonathon get through the wall that Waylynn has built around herself? Will Waylynn give Jonathon the chance to show her that by taking a leap of faith, she could finally have the life she has longed for so desperately? I loved this book and Waylynn’s interaction with members of her family. Her brothers made me laugh, and the sisters in laws. That’s why I have to go back and read their stories. I not saying anything else except I thoroughly enjoyed it, and my god Jonathon is made my kindle sizzle.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

EXCERPT:

I didn’t hear a word that the interior designer was saying. I was focused on the way Jonathon looked in those Wranglers. And his boots. And the freaking black cowboy hat that made his grey eyes stand out. I swallowed hard.

Jesus…could this guy get any hotter?

Jonathon caught my stare from across the room. When he smiled my panties nearly disintegrated. The man had never even touched me, and yet one look from him and I was damn near panting.

Yes, he could get hotter. Christ Almighty.

Before I could stop myself, my tongue ran over my dry lips. Jonathon’s brows rose and his boyishly handsome smile turned into a sexy-as-hell grin. When his eyes smoldered, my breath hitched.

I wiped my brow. Shit, is it hot in here?

Jonathon knew where my dirty little mind had taken me, and I was pretty damn sure his was going in the same direction. I closed my eyes and tried not to picture anything sexy, but failed. Me…up against the wall with him buried deep inside me, giving me a long overdue orgasm.

“Waylynn? Waylynn?” Ann’s voice pulled me from my naughty thoughts.

Popping my eyes open, I cleared my throat. “What? Huh?”

With a sweet smile, Ann repeated the question I had totally tuned out.

“The color scheme. Are you good with it?”

I frowned. What in the heck was she talking about? Color scheme? “Umm.”

The young woman waited patiently, while I stood there with my mouth open like an idiot.

“Color scheme?” I asked with a slight smile.

Ann laughed. “Did you even hear a word I said?”

My eyes darted to Jonathon. He was leaning against a desk in the middle of the room. It was the only piece of furniture that had been left by the previous owners of this space. His arms were now crossed over his massive chest, and he wore a shit-eating grin. Did the man know how freaking handsome he was? That sex appeal dripped off of him?

He winked, and I had to lock my knees to keep from falling.

Bastard.

He knew exactly where my mind had gone, because his was there as well.

Turning back to the interior decorator, I replied, “I’m so sorry. Jonathon was distracting me.”

One quick glance back and Jonathon’s smile vanished, replaced by a shocked expression. “Me?” he asked.

I nodded. “Yes. You.”

Ann was now staring at Jonathon. I could see by the look in her eyes and the way she chewed her lip that she was having similar thoughts. It was obvious by the way she was trying not to look in his direction while she talked. She was probably the same age as he was, and that pissed me off. Then again, I had to remind myself that Jonathon hadn’t been staring at Ann. He’d been staring at me.

“What did I do?” Jonathon asked.

I wanted to say that his hotness was making my panties wet, and the throbbing between my legs was making it hard to think, but I decided it was best to avoid the truth.

“That desk you’re leaning on. I keep wondering why the previous owner left it?”

Jonathon looked down at the desk as Ann asked, “Do you want to keep the desk? It would be beautiful refinished.”

I shrugged. “I’m not sure.”

Jonathon walked around it. “I’m sure we could put this to good use. I can come up with an idea or two.”

His head lifted and his eyes caught mine. I swore they turned as dark as the night sky. I swallowed, trying to ignore the pulse between my legs.

REVIEW:

This book blew me away, I didn’t read the blurb and in went blind. The story is told by different pov including the psychopath. This is definitely my cup of tea with the story taking place in FBI BAU, I love a murder mystery. This was so different from the standard who done it. We are on the inside of the group looking for a killer and then we are inside the psychopath’s mind. It kept the story flowing with the different POV’s
The characters in the BAU are a tight knit group so when Noah brings in a newbie Ella it takes time for her fit in. This book is fantastic, I don’t want give anything away. We have team looking for the psychopath who killing and leaving body parts in a wooded area. This book is not as dark as I thought it would be. It was wonderful feeling part of the team I was in there trying to figure who the Psychopath was  . I can’t recommend this enough, a book that kept on my toes all the way through. I am now going to look through the Author’s backlist.

✮✮✮COME AS YOU ARE is here! Grab your copy today! ✮✮✮

From #1 NYT bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a sexy new standalone romance!

I couldn’t have scripted a more perfect night.

For one fantastic evening, at a masquerade party in the heart of Manhattan, I’m not the millionaire everyone wants a piece of. Fine—multimillionaire. But who’s counting all those commas? Not me, and not the most intriguing woman I’ve ever met, who happens to like dancing, witty banter, and hot, passionate up-against-the-wall sex as much as I do.

There’s no need for names or business cards. And that’s why I’m eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge…bank account.

Everything’s coming up aces. Until the next day when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash — a lot complicated.)

***

He’s charming, brilliant, an incredible lover, and right now I want to stab fate in the eyeballs.

I’ve had one goal I’ve been working toward, and lo and behold, my mystery man is the very person who stands between me and my dream job. A job I desperately need since my hard-knock life has nothing in common with his star-kissed one.

But it’s time to put that fairytale night behind me, and focus on learning what makes him tick. Too bad it turns out his quirks are my quirks, and his love affair with New York matches mine.

And as we spend our days together, I discover something else that feels like a cruel twist of fate — I’m falling for this naughty prince charming, and that’s not an ending I can write to our story.

REVIEW:

Once more Lauren Blakely has done it again, written a book that has the most wonderful man in it. I’m so in love with Flynn who is a thoroughly nice guy with such an awesome personality. Having been bitten in the past by a woman who wanted him for his bank balance. Flynn just finds it hard to trust women. As soon as he met Sabrina it was lust at first sight.
Our heroine Sabrina is feisty, intelligent who also has plenty of heart. I loved this book, it was entertaining, funny and Lauren at her best. I can’t wait to get the audiobook. They first meet at a masquerade party, both wearing costumes and masks. They just clicked and decided to meet again. Of course their journey to their happy ever after is paved with great entertainment. This one is a must buy

ARC Review: DARK DESIRES ( A Novel of The Dark Ones ) By AJA JAMES @megami771 @RABTBookTours

 

Paranormal / Fantasy Romance
Date Published: April 5, 2018
 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png
“A human and a vampire. An Assassin and his target. They made an impossibility possible, despite his past, despite their present. They had the future—they had Eternity.”
 
Ryu Takamura is the Dark Ones’ Assassin. He has never missed his target…until now. Until her.
 
Ava Monroe is a talented geneticist who holds the key to the vampire race’s future…and perhaps her own as well.
 
Their attraction is explosive from the first. She would do anything to have him. He would sacrifice all to protect her.
 
But will their love triumph over seemingly impossible odds as they battle enemies new and old? Especially the demons from Ryu’s past? And deep within his heart?

REVIEW:

This is the third book in the series, but can be read as a standalone. Dr Ava Monroe meets Ryu on a plane travelling to Tokyo, while Ava is a geneticist and her work is her life. The moment she meets him she is captivated and he is all she can think about.
Ryu is a vampire one of the dark ones as he was made. He is tracking Ava because of the research she is involved, and the research team she has come to work with.
This is an enjoyable series, and another exciting take on the vampire world. Ava was funny with her comments that should have stayed in her head. I absolutely loved Ryu he was HOT. That’s all for now I’m not spoiling the story, so you have to read it yourself.

About the Author
 

Aja has been writing stories since the age of six, and novels since the age of thirteen. While she’d be the first to admit that those early efforts weren’t particularly good, she sure loved putting them down on paper!
 
The best part of writing, according to Aja, is that it’s completely organic, the way the stories develop. When the inspiration hits, she writes just so she herself can learn where the characters are headed because oftentimes, they take her by surprise! It is her ultimate dream to share her stories with as many readers as she possibly can.
 
Her other loves include art, cooking, old movies (anything with Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Robert Redford, Vivien Leigh, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Clark Gable, and all the song and dance numbers because she can’t watch them and not be happy!)
 
She adores taking long walks with her husband and running after her two rambunctious kids. She has traveled extensively (all seven continents except Antarctica) and has had a multi-cultural upbringing. She speaks two and a half languages and binge watch TV shows when the mood strikes.

Audiobook Review Tour: A WITCH’S CONCERN ( A Witch’s Path Book 4 ) By N. E. CONNEELY, Narrated by JEFF HAYS and LAUREL CATHERINE WINKEL

 

Author: N.E. Conneely

Narratora: Jeff Hays, Laurie Catherine Winkel

Series: A Witch’s Path, Book 4

Length: 7 hours 25 minutes

Publisher: N.E. Conneely

Released: Jan. 16, 2018

Genre: Paranormal, Supernatural

Michelle has been figuring out what her life is like now that the demon has been killed, and Sylvia and Varro are dead. Even the clans of witches trying to attract her to their way of life have backed off and given her a chance to grieve. Her relationship with Elron is stronger than ever, but there are things left unsaid.

On the way to her parents’ wedding, the delicate calm she’d been living in is broken. Witches are out for her blood, her family is caught in the crossfire, and friendships are threatened. Work doesn’t let up either, and she partners up with Elron to deal with magic gone wild. Michelle finds that her problems are larger than one clan of witches, and is forced to choose between the people she holds dear and the way of life she loves.

This is the fourth book in a series, following A Witch’s Trial. It is a standalone novel, however, your experience will be greatly enhanced if you’ve heard the previous books.

N.E. Conneely lives in northern Georgia with her dog and a mountain of books. They sweat through the summer and freeze through the winter, and life as they know it comes to an end when so much as a single snowflake falls out of the sky. For fun, N.E. plays with her dog, reads, knits, crochets, paints, and does tie-dyeing and origami. She makes a great pizza and is currently negotiating with her husband about raising sea monkeys and growing a vegetable garden.

His versatility and authenticity in voicing characters, expressive low-impact narration, and dedication to offering the highest quality audio possible has earned him a loyal following of listeners. Having been fascinated with sound since he can remember, Jeff takes his background of composing and producing music, and his continual consumption of the avalanche of fictional media we all experience in these modern times, and uses it to inform his style of story telling in the audiobook realm.

And now, having produced more than 80 audio books and perfecting his craft, using the namesake of his live streaming narration show, the Soundbooth Theater shingle has been hung. Soundbooth Theater is dedicated to applying Jeff’s production methods to new audio books with other budding narrator talent, and expanding his scope from audio books, to voicing and producing animation.

Narrator Bio

Laurie got into voiceover by studying with the legendary dialect expert Paul Meier and hosting the teen program for a nonprofit for the blind, Kansas Audio Reader. She speaks French fluently and, before diving into audiobooks, lived and performed for some time in France. She’s racking up some bizarre credits, playing a range of characters onscreen from Disney princesses to horror scream queens, and proving her audio versatility by narrating everything from cowboy romances to action-packed GameLit fantasy trolls. You can also catch her in a few VR video games. Her favorite is playing confident, power-hungry, whip-smart anti-heroines.

Like Jeff Hays, she hails from the Kansas City area but currently lives in Atlanta.

We start with Michelle on the way to her parents wedding when she gets a puncture, when a car stops Michelle realises this was trap, and was kidnapped by witches from her mother’s former coven.
Michelle has grown without a coven, and she wants stay Clan less. Elron and Michelle’s relationship grows slow and steady. This is about her parents and her grandmothers, and one of her grandmother Gretchen is determined to have Michelle in her Coven.
This is more about family, and the lengths some go to get their own way. This is more about love from a family Michelle had never met on her father side.
This is an excellent story, and we understand more about how destiny catches up Michelle whether she likes or not.
Great narration Jeff’s male voices were very distinctive and I knew who was speaking every time. Laurel is Michelle and conjures her personality exactly. This is my fourth  audiobook in the series and everyone feels like old friends ( not the baddies ) received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Jeff Hays. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Q&A with Laurie Catherine Winkel

  • How did you wind up narrating audiobooks? Was it always your goal or was it something you stumbled into by chance?
    • Well, I was encouraged to do so by my professor, Paul Meier, who I had no idea was a big name in the audiobook world for his dialect coaching and founding the IDEA archives. I kind of stumbled into it later when I was asked to audition for a program called Kansas Audio Reader in college, which was a specialized radio broadcast for the blind. For three years I ran a program reading YA books for blind teens. I had no idea it was going to be so relevant to my life.
  • Did you find it difficult to “break into” audiobook narration? What skill/tool helped you the most when getting started?
    • Because I had unknowingly gained all that experience in nonprofit, and training in my acting work, I found the performance pretty accessible. What was throw-your-headphones-at-the-wall infuriating was all the tech! I am not a tech-savvy person, and learning even the basic specs of audio recording was a huge struggle. When troubleshooting one of my first home-recorded books, I spent so much time on internet forums that my eyes dried out and I got a twitch. But there’s a lot of help available on the internet if you ask the right questions.
  • A lot of narrators seem to have a background in theatre. Is that something you think is essential to a successful narration career?
    • I think a theatre background is an excellent addition to any performance-based career. You simply won’t get the same depth from acting into a vacuum all the time. Speaking into a microphone feels like that to me — we are our own directors, coaches, and engineers.
  • What type of training have you undergone?
    • I studied with Paul Meier, one of the top dialect coaches in the world. I have a BA in theatre from the University of Kansas. And I’m always taking acting classes. Any serious actor should never stop learning and coaching.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for narrating?
    • Honestly, I get burned out vocally before mentally. I have to take breaks and rotate with other projects.
  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
    • Absolutely. I have to drive a lot, so I cycle between about a dozen audiobooks and podcasts at any given time.

Audiobook Blog Tour: STRAY By NATASHA STORIES, Narrated Sierra Kline and Jeffrey Kafer

 

 

Author: Natasha Stories

Narrators: Sierra Kline and Jeffrey Kafer

Length: 7 hours 32 minutes

Publisher: Ashton Publishing Group

Released: Feb. 15, 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

From best-selling author Natasha Stories.

Erin Timms took a new job as a veterinarian in Sunshine, Colorado, for two important reasons: to get away from her ex, and to give herself a chance at a new life. But when devastating news of her ex follows her there, she begins to think she has made a terrible mistake.

Tall, stunning-looking Jon Miles had only one goal: to save the mountain canyon where Sunshine is located from businessmen who want to exploit it. But how can he do that when he is already an outcast?

There was nothing to suggest they’d ever meet, much less strike a spark of red-hot romance. Except that Erin can never turn away a stray….

 

 

I’m Natasha, and I write romance and erotic romance stories. I love reading too, and some of my favourite novels are books like Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James, the Fade series by Kate Dawes, as well as the Crossfire series.

Erin Timms finds herself starting her life over in the small town of Sunshine, Colorado. She’s a vet and after a breakup with her ex she’s left Dallas, Texas and is trying small town life, which as she comes to experience is very different. She encounters Jon Miles one evening when he brings a stray dog he’s just hit with his car, now Jon’s really hot. Every time Erin sees him she gets tongue tied, or rubbish comes of her month.
Jon is bowled over by Erin and is definitely interested. Unfortunately both parties have a lot of unresolved issues, which keeps them apart. So there lots of unresolved angst from Erin, which the Sierra brings to life all the emotion and especially Erin’s evening with BOB to life very realistically. Wow Jon voice is brought to life dripping with sex appeal by Jeffrey that has all the female listeners seat up and  take notice. The star of the story for me was Max the golden retriever who was the Stray in the title or was  he.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Sierra Kline. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

——————

Ivy Hayes

Dating can be a rocky journey. Once the new shine wears off, you may end up with a case of buyer’s remorse.
That’s where I come in. I set the backdrop and coach you through the breakup.
Don’t want overblown drama, hard feelings, or a drink tossed in your face? Then I’m your fairy godmother, child.

Becket Jones

As an NFL quarterback, endorsement ads and the media pandering after me are all part of the game.
Ivy Hayes is the first woman who doesn’t care about my money and the notoriety that goes along with it.
But I’m a long-term guy, and she operates strictly in the now. Which means I need to bring my A-game.

Otherwise, I’ll end up getting ditched.

DITCHED_BASICS

REVIEW:4.5 STARS

Wow I have been waiting for this book from RC Boldt, Becket was such a great guy in He Loves Me Knot. We get to know him on a more personal level so he deserves a great woman, and Ivy is a great female lead.
When Ivy was in college and with the help of her friends Darcy and Leif they start the company that later becomes Ditched. Beckett is impressed and falls for Ivy straight away. Unfortunately Ivy’s background causes the relationship problems.
This book is as usual, an entertaining romance with a lot more substance that I have come to expect from this Author. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and now I can’t wait for the next one. At the end of the book there is a link to a Bonus content the puts the icing on the cake even though the end put a big smile on my face after all the emotions I was put through while reading.

ARC Review: PRETTY UGLY ( Addicted Hearts Book 2 ) By JANE ANTHONY @JAnthonyAuthor

PRETTY UGLY BY JANE ANTHONY 

SERIES: ADDICTED HEARTS BOOK 2

JANE ANTHONY PR free until 4.3[140011]

GENRE: CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

RELEASE DATE APRIL 2ND 2018

 PrettyUglyCovereBook

We were meant to live happily ever after, 

a promise I sealed with a band of gold.

Our road was rocky and rough, yet worth every mark etched on my heart.
Kat is my addiction. 
I’m her salvation.
Two hearts joined in pain.
Yet beneath the surface of our intended bliss, a tsunami was brewing.
An unstoppable force driven by deceit.
Now I’m back in New York — the city that stole my soul — caught between the future that awaits and a past that won’t let go.
I promised us a happy ending
But the ugliest lies are the ones we tell ourselves.

“Once again, Jane Anthony delivers a heartfelt, emotional, and sometimes soul-shredding love story that will stay with me forever.” International Best-Selling Author Dani Rene’ 

 REVIEW TAG blog_review
 Pretty Ugly carries on from Pretty Reckless, where we have Chase and Kat getting ready for their wedding day. Unfortunately things don’t always go to plan. I think this book was more intense than the last one. I loved it Jane Anthony had me yelling at my kindle, and I was in from the beginning cheering when needed, smiling when warranted.
This is a must read if you have read Pretty Reckless, if you haven’t start there so you understand the dynamics of their relationship with each other. If you want a pretty Romance then this isn’t for you. This is much more.
 
 gold-stargold-stargold-stargold-star
Writing what vibrates within her soul — romance, rock, representing Jersey moms in mini vans righteously — Jane Anthony gives a bit of herself and her quirky knowledge in each novel by incorporating her love of music through a book-specific playlist and adding things uniquely Jane to the plot, like her crazy family or ’80s trivia. When she’s not busy being mom or Mrs. A, you’ll find her at a concert, lost in a book, or on Facebook with her adoring readers.

Jane loves hearing from her readers! Connect with her on these social media sites, and don’t be too shy to say hello!

Audiobook Blog Tour: ACCEPTING RISK By CANDACE BLEVINS, Narrated Noah Michael Levine

 

 

Author: Candace Blevins

Narrator: Noah Michael Levine

Length: 2 hours 57 minutes

Publisher: Candace Blevins

Released: Feb. 21, 2018

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Bethany has joked for years that if she ever settles down, it’ll be with a harem of men, only it isn’t a joke anymore.

Mac is a new werewolf, and still must be watched at every moment to be sure he stays in control. His kink has always been ménage, so when he overhears the beautiful redhead at the bar wanting to take on not only him, but also the werewolf and wereleopard chaperoning his night out… he has to convince them to let him take her home. He might not be trustworthy with a human woman alone, yet, but with two powerful shapeshifters in bed with them, what could go wrong?

Previously published in the Every Which Way Anthology.

 

Candace Blevins has published more than thirty books. She lives with her husband of twenty years and their two daughters. When not working or driving young teens all over the place, she can be found reading, writing, meditating, or swimming. The family’s beloved, goofy, retired racing greyhound is usually at her side as she writes, quietly keeping her company.

Candace writes Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Contemporary BDSM Romance, and a kick-ass Motorcycle Club series.

Her urban fantasy series, Only Human, gives us a world where weredragons, werewolves, werelions, three different species of vampires, and a variety of other mythological beings exist.

Candace’s two paranormal romance series, The Chattanooga Supernaturals and The Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club, are both sister series to the Only Human series, and give some secondary characters their happily ever after.

Her contemporary Safeword series gives us characters who happen to have some extreme kinks. Relationships can be difficult enough without throwing power exchange into the mix, and her books show characters who care enough about each other to fight to make the relationship work. Each couple in the Safeword series gives the reader a different take on the lifestyle.

You can visit Candace on the web at candaceblevins.com and feel free to friend her on Facebook at facebook.com/candacesblevins and Goodreads at goodreads.com/CandaceBlevins. You can also join facebook.com/groups/CandacesKinksters to get sneak peeks into what she’s writing now, images that inspire her, and the occasional juicy teaser.

Acceptable Risk was originally from an anthology, but now has been released as a novella. The Audiobook is quite short only 2hrs 57mins, so this  is a peek into the one of Candace’s kinky worlds. This one is like most women’s dreams. There you are sitting with your best friend and 3 gorgeous men walk into the bar and you turn to your friend in this case its Jenny. “I wouldn’t mind those three in my harem,” not expecting the men to hear what I said. One problem they are all shifters and they heard, and volunteer for the harem. This is an entertaining story with plenty of sex and kink, but I found it funny in places. The narrator was faultless, a good narrator for me is someone that does multiple voices, So that when you’re in the story without thinking the accent on that one is dodgy. The guys were individual, and it was like listening to a group of guys chatting.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Candace Blevins. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Q&A with Author Candace Blevins

  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
    • Not at all. I wrote this for an anthology years ago, and published it as a novella when the rights returned to me. It’s a nice entry into both my Chattanooga Supernaturals series and my Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club series, so it seemed the perfect choice for my first foray into audio. When I eventually look for narrators for Only Human, my urban fantasy series, I’m going to want a male and female working in tandem, but for my first venture, I thought I should keep it as simple as possible.
  • How did you select your narrator?
    • I have the most awesome reader group ever (Candace’s Kinksters, feel free to look us up on Facebook and come play with us!), and I asked them to tell me their favorite narrators. I listened to the top ten men they listed (with three men and one woman in the menage, it seemed logical to hire a man), and I loved Noah Michael Levine’s voice.
  • How closely did you work with your narrator before and during the recording process? Did you give them any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters?
    • Noah is a dream to work with. I told him where each character was from, a little about their personalities, and how I envisioned they sounded. It was important we didn’t get a caricature of a southern accent for Jonathan and Bethany, and I think he did a great job.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?
    • I have so many stories in my head, and I write in several different genres, so burnout isn’t a problem for me. My bikers let me play with antiheroes, my urban fantasy series lets me move away from romance, and my dark series lets me get down and dirty. And of course, I have some romance series where I can let people find their happily ever after. Also, if I tire of writing werewolves, I can switch to vampires, or lions, or even ravens or grizzly bears.
  • Is there a particular part of this story that you feel is more resonating in the audiobook performance than in the book format?
    • Noah Michael Levine’s voice is melt-in-your panties good, especially when he goes all Dom as Ranger. Yummm.
  • What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?
    • I don’t see it that way at all. Some people learn by seeing, others by hearing. It only makes sense that the auditory crowd would prefer to listen rather than look. All the words are the same — it’s the same book, no matter which format you choose.
  • In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
    • I’ve only written one stand-alone, and it’s currently banned on Amazon. My publisher is fighting it, but in the meantime, you can find Absolute Power Exchange at Kobo, Apple, Smashwords, BN, and other vendors. The con, obviously, is that once I was done with the couple, I’ll never have an opportunity to visit them again. In a series, I love revisiting couples after their book’s complete, seeing them through the eyes of others, and watching them live out their happily ever after.On the pro side, it was so much easier to write a book without having to constantly stay on top of how the events I was writing would impact the timeline of the rest of the series, or to make sure I stayed true to the rules and personalities of characters from other books. I have four series in one universe, and while I love being able to swap characters around, it takes a lot to keep everything straight.
  • What’s next for you?
    • The eleventh book in my motorcycle club series just released, and I’m so excited to finally be able to share it with readers.I’ve been working on an epic Faerie story on and off for over five years, and last year I put it on Radish, so I was kind of forced to finish it since I had to write to keep up with the chapter releases. It’s currently going under massive revisions, and will be released as four books, titled Slave, Lady, Consort, and Queen. I don’t have release dates yet, but I’m hoping to be able to release each book a month apart.

REVIEW: BURN BRIGHT by Bestselling Author PATRICIA BRIGGS

BURN BRIGHT By PATRICIA BRIGGS

 

BURN BRIGHT PATRICIA BRIGGS BC

 

BURN BRIGHT

AN ALPHA AND OMEGA NOVEL

BLURB:

They are the wild and the broken. The werewolves too damaged to live safely among their own kind. For their own good, they have been exiled to the outskirts of Aspen Creek, Montana. Close enough to the Marrok’s pack to have its support; far enough away to not cause any harm.
With their Alpha out of the country, Charles and Anna are on call when an SOS comes in from the fae mate of one such wildling. Heading into the mountainous wilderness, they interrupt the abduction of the wolf–but can’t stop blood from being shed. Now Charles and Anna must use their skills–his as enforcer, hers as peacemaker–to track down the attackers, reopening a painful chapter in the past that springs from the darkest magic of the witchborn…

BURN BRIGHT AUDIO BOOK 

 

REVIEW:

I love this series, and every book gets better. Charles and Anna make a great team. Some of their adventures have taken away from the pack. This one seemed to involve most of the pack we know, and some of the Wildings that we don’t.
I am not going into any details and give anything away. I know it is one my great pleasures in life to read a new Patricia Briggs novel. I will say this is must read for fans of this series. If you have only read The Mercy Thompson Series, this it set in the same world and begins with a short story from an anthology called On The Prowl which was called Alpha and Omega. This is also available in a digital copy available. This is Anna’s story, and how she met Charles. As I enjoy reading a new Patricia Briggs I also enjoyed the  Audiobooks which is narrated by HOLTER GRAHAM who brings this wonderful book to life for me.

FIVE-STARS

The first book that introduced Charles and Anna, and it wowed me.

This is a must read, as introducing Charles to Anna, in shows the way Anna has grown into who she meant to be since meeting Charles. It was a pleasure read the growth of Charles and Anna through each book.

ARC Review: OUR LAST FIRST KISS ( Heartbreak Hotel Book One ) By USA Today Bestselling Author CHRISTIE RIDGWAY @ChristieRidgway

OLFK_TEASER1

Welcome to the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach, where newlyweds come to honeymoon, where anniversary couples celebrate milestones, and where broken hearts find a place to heal.

After her best friend is jilted at the altar, maid of honor Lilly Durand whisks the bride to Dragonfly Beach and its legendary hotel, determined to help her overcome her misery. Lilly won’t admit it, but she’s hurting too. During the few days of pre-wedding festivities, a powerful attraction had grown between her and the handsome and confident best man, Alec Thatcher. Now she’ll never see him again, but she’s decided to consider that a good thing. This way her inconvenient crush can’t turn into something so dangerous as love. But then, to her dismay, she discovers Alec is just a room key away at what some call the Heartbreak Hotel.

Alec Thatcher doesn’t have the time or inclination for long-term romance. Serial dating has suited his confirmed-bachelor status just fine—until he meets Lilly Durand and his world turns on its axis. She claims to be as relationship-averse as he, but when the two of them are together he can’t recall his own reasons against commitment. Though Lilly touches his heart and soul, she’s as cautious as she is sexy. With a stubborn streak a mile long, Alec will have to exert all his powers of persuasion to give Lilly her last first kiss…

OLFK_TEASER3

REVIEW:

This is the first book in a new series called Heartbreak Hotel, where you go to get over your heartbreak. In this case we meet Lilly who has come with her friend Audra, who was left at the altar. Lilly is very worried about Audra when her locks herself in her room and doesn’t come out. All Lilly can think about was the best man Alec Thatcher, and the near miss with the chemistry between them.
Lilly is unaware that Alec is related to the family who own the resort, and his parents are celebrating 35th wedding anniversary with a weeklong celebration with friends and family.
It was entertaining to watch Lilly and Alec both only wanting a non-serious sexual encounter. Both have reasons not to become serious, but love waits for no one. A sweet and at times funny romance that leaves you with a smile on your face.
A great start to a new series, where the scene was set in a lovely backdrop of the Heartbreak Hotel, and some of the characters that run the place

Blog Tour: MURDER NOTES ( Lilah Love #1 ) By New York Times Bestselling Author LISA RENEE JONES @LisaReneeJones

Title: Murder Notes
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Series: Lilah Love #1
Release Date: March 27, 2018
New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’s heart-pounding thriller of a woman’s secrets—and a past that’s about to come out of hiding…
As an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.
 
Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?
 
I scan the ocean, expecting it to turn to blood, but it simply crashes to the shore.
 
I turn to the house and take a step, then stop abruptly, a shadow flickering by the house. A shiver runs down my spine. There it is again. Another shadow. Someone is there. It’s then that I flash back to being on this very sand, with Kane grabbing my arms and saying, “I’ll take care of it.” And I let him, and did so without asking questions, until it was too late to change the outcome. Because I was weak that night and he was strong. But I am not weak anymore.
 
I pull my weapon and start running for the house, wind in my hair and face, my heart thundering in my ears, and I don’t stop until I’m staring at the blood splattered all over the patio glass, some kind of note pinned in the center. Adrenaline surges through me, but I am in my Otherworld now. I retain my cool. I walk to the patio door, using the end of my shirt to open the door, and then I systematically search every inch of the house. When I know I’m alone, I walk to my bag, pull on gloves and then walk back outside, yanking the note off the door. Returning back inside, I lock the door and pull the blinds and then I open the note. At the top is the alphabet, pasted in paper letters, with an X across the letter A. The note reads:
 
A is for the Apple a day that keeps the doctor away. But a doctor couldn’t help him, could he?
 
I KNOW.

To celebrate the release of MURDER NOTES Lisa is giving away TWO Lilah Love Mugs PLUS a Kindle Fire Tablet!

ARC REVIEW: MURDER NOTES ( Lilah Love Book One ) By New York Times Bestselling Author LISA RENEE JONES @LisaReneeJones


 

Title: Murder Girl
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Series: Lilah Love #2
Release Date: July 10, 2018
New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones returns with the second book in her electrifying series featuring Lilah Love, an FBI profiler who doesn’t fight her dark side—she embraces it.
 
It’s Lilah Love’s job to inhabit a killer’s mind. The unapologetically tough FBI profiler is very comfortable there. But her latest case is making her head spin. It’s a string of brutal assassinations carried out across the country, each tied to a mysterious tattoo. Body by body, she’s followed the clues all the way back to her hometown. And every step of the way, the killer has been following her.
 
Here, beneath the glamour of the privileged Hamptons community, is a secret long buried but never forgotten. It’s bigger than Lilah. It’s powerful enough to escape the reach of the FBI. And it’s more personal than anyone can imagine. Because it’s hiding in Lilah’s own past. To fight it, she’s forced to turn to her lethally tempting ex, Kane Mendez. He’s an expert at bringing out Lilah’s darkest impulses. If she plans to survive, she’s going to need them.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones is the author of the highly acclaimed INSIDE OUT series.

 

In addition to the success of Lisa’s INSIDE OUT series, she has published many successful titles. The TALL, DARK AND DEADLY series and THE SECRET LIFE OF AMY BENSEN series, both spent several months on a combination of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling lists. Lisa is also the author of the bestselling DIRTY MONEY and WHITE LIES series. Presently, Lisa is working on her Murder Girl/Lilah Love series to be published by Montlake.
 
Prior to publishing Lisa owned multi-state staffing agency that was recognized many times by The Austin Business Journal and also praised by the Dallas Women’s Magazine. In 1998 Lisa was listed as the #7 growing women owned business in Entrepreneur Magazine.

REVIEW:

It doesn’t matter what I read of Lisa Renee Jones, I get pulled into the story to the exclusion of anything else. I know this would be a murder investigation but that was it. As with any book written Lisa, we have a strong intelligent female FBI agent Lilah Love, who was as thorny as any detective I’ve read about.
Coming from a rich background and being attractive is not an asset for an FBI profiler who moved to LA from The Hamptons to escape the family name. Unfortunately after a string of murders Lilah has to go home to follow the killer and straight into her past.
This was great I love every minute of this book, I don’t where to start except I can’t for wait for the next one. The longer the book goes on, the more layers and players appear. Until it appears like there is no one for Lilah to trust, including some of her family.
If you love Lisa’s complicated storylines you will be hooked, and waiting for book number two. This is so different for Lisa’s other works where the love story is not centre stage. The is about an FBI Profiler, and her story. If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. This is definitely a cut above normal.

fearless_frontcover

Fall in love with the Wards…

Mechanic and garage owner, Kane Harmon is used to the wealthy beautiful women visiting his beach town. He doesn’t get involved because he knows most females would merely be slumming for the summer.

Except Halley Ward isn’t just passing through. She lives a solitary life in a bungalow on the beach. A woman tormented by her past, distant from her wealthy family, different from Kane’s usual fare of town girls who know his M.O.- Don’t expect more than he’s willing to give.

Kane rescues Halley and her broken down car from the side of the road and instantly he’s hooked. She says she’s not interested in him. He knows she lies. And he makes it his mission to bring her back to life, to return her emotionally to her family. To show her the colors around her were as vibrant as the ones she puts on her canvas.

Until past meets present and threatens all the progress they’ve made. Then it’s Halley’s turn to step up and stand up for the relationship and life she’s finally coming to believe she deserves

Fearless-AN

REVIEW:

This is the first book in Rosewood Bay Series, but each a standalone. As I write this review the snow is falling and I can’t get warm. So strolling along the beach in the summer had me hooked, joking aside it was an enjoyable read. At times sad for Halley and what happened to her in foster care.
I have to say Kane is definitely book boyfriend material. Kane and Halley had known each since she was 13 and being bullied at school. Kane had stood up for her, but hadn’t seen her for years. So when Halley arrives at his garage Kane is overwhelmed and know he wants to get her on a date. It was beautiful to watch them fall in love, and Halley blossomed as she came to love and trust him.
There is lots going on in the book, and I don’t want to give anything away. We have some world building or should I say sightseeing, and I will be happy to visit again when Breathe comes out. This is a lovely romance Halley and Kane were perfect together, but with some real life issues for the couple had to work through.

Audiobook Tour: RAIN OF ASH ( Skydancer Book 1 ) By GWEN MITCHELL, Narrated by Daniela Acitelli

Narrator: Daniela Acitelli

Length: 11 hours 52 minutes

Series: Skydancer, Book 1

Publisher: T. M. Miller

Released: Feb. 14, 2018

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Briana turned her back on her magical heritage to chase her dream career, but now a spell cast with her grandmother’s dying breath has unleashed her dormant Oracle powers, drawing her into a world of dangerous power and cryptic prophecy.

Thanks to her family’s tragic history, Bri is a pariah in her hometown, and the only other witches she can turn to are her childhood best friend, Astrid, and Kean–her first love. They are convinced it’s destiny that has reunited them and determined to help break the curse on Bri’s bloodline.

But the longer she stays, the more people die.

Tortured by chaotic visions of fire and blood, Bri must harness her magic and navigate the dangerous waters of her past–and past life–to unmask the evil hunting in her shadow before it kills the only loved ones she has left.

Because she has a secret of her own. One she already died to protect. And as memories of her ancient rival become clear, so does her grim future…unless she can change it.

Gwen is living her happily ever after in Seattle. She’s a nature lover, science geek, and spiritual explorer, with a nose for well-aged tequila and a pin-up fashion obsession. When not chasing butterflies to hidden waterfalls or cavorting through the Emerald City, she can be found in a cozy chair reading, or brewing up tales of magic, adventure, and romance.

I was attracted to this book by the cover and the synopsis and couldn’t wait to listen. After 11 hours of being immersed in the Zyne world I now feel like I’ve lost my best friends. Kean, Astrid and Briana. The narrator managed to pull me into story so much I now feel bereft.
The author has created a unique and interesting world that I hope to revisit when book two comes out. A magical world with so many layers. The world building conjures a rich world and I was there with them.
Briana is forced back to a life she escaped many years before when her Grandmother and sister are killed in a car crash. When she arrives in Evergreen Cove she discovers their deaths were no accident. Before long the only way to protect her love ones is to embrace her power and heritage. Meeting her best friends Kean and Astrid make her realise this is where she meant be. It has been a pleasure to listen to a narrator, that made me forget there was one as I was so immersed in the story.

 

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Gwen Mitchell. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Think you know what it’s like being a baller’s girl?

You don’t.

My fairy tale is upside down.

AN USE THIS ONE

REVIEW:

I don’t know why I’m surprised, because Kennedy Ryan’s writing always blows me away, after I’ve been pulled into the story so much, it feels like you there the story. You can’t get story out your head, I worked with victims, not victims, survivors for many years. Kendall still me shedding tears in so parts. Thank god the parts with August and Iris make me smile. I thought I was reading a sports romance, and it did involve sports. Baseball was a subject that brought Iris and August together.
The larger story arc opens your eyes, Kendall’s books often helps us to open our eyes to a wider issue, and has done so spectacularly that has made very difficult for me not give away spoilers.
I will say this book doesn’t leave your mind for days after and is clunking away in mine. This is not for the fainthearted, but is a special book to me. Five stars is not enough for writing this good.

ARC Review: MR. SO WRONG By R.C. STEPHEN is Now On KINDLEUNLIMITED @rcstephensbooks @EJBookPromos

Title: Mr. So Wrong

Author: R.C. Stephens

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: March 19, 2018

 

 


Mr So Wrong BC

Albert Walsh the Third has spent over a decade running away from his past. With no job and nothing to lose, he goes on a spontaneous drive to visit his sister in the mountains of Colorado.  The simple trip proves to be more than he bargained for.

 

Samantha Belmont is floating through life. She’s cast her dreams aside and now works on her papa’s ranch. One night, Sam is driving home in a snow storm after a hookup when she spots a car in a ditch and saves a man’s life. She doesn’t expect to develop feelings for the hot as hell stranger. Everything about him is wrong from his pointy shoes and fancy car to his age. Pushing him away would be the smart move.

Only Al can’t be pushed around anymore. Maybe it’s because she saved his life or maybe it’s because this cowgirl is completely different from every other woman he’s been with. 

Problem is Sam has secrets of her own. Secrets she doesn’t want Al to find out because if he did he’d run in the other direction. She pushes him away even though he melts her panties right off—literally. There is more than just her heart that needs protection. Al won’t give up fighting for the feisty cowgirl’s attention. Tempers will flare and hearts will be broken. And Sam’s plans to never settle down will be torched like the inferno of passion raging between them.


 
 

REVIEW TAG blog_review

Mr So Wrong is about Al from Mr All Wrong, and takes place after the action in Mr Wrong. After his friend decides to not run for President. Al hasn’t a clue what he wants to do. So he decides to spend Christmas with his sister Izzy in deepest Colorado. On the way there, he is caught in a snowstorm, and gets in an accident which leaves him in a ditch unable to get the car out.
Along comes Sam on her way home, and she see Al in his car and rescues him. Al is suffering from hypothermia and realises Sam saved his life. This was not what I was expecting from Al’s story. Sam had a heart of gold and was a good influence on Al. This was an unexpected romance, nothing like I expected. I enjoyed the side characters, and Sam and Al were alike in many ways and they fell hard.
This was a lot of fun, and it was a joy to get to know Al especially watching him falling in love with Sam. This is a funny hot sexy romance and I enjoyed it all.

ARC Review: ESCORT By New York Times Bestselling SKYE WARREN@skye_warren

 

“Hypnotically romantic…this book reads like a sensual dream and I didn’t want to wake up.” – Tessa Bailey, New York Times bestselling author

Escort, a sexy new contemporary romance standalone from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren is now LIVE!

Escort.jpg

There is no shame in pleasure. And no love in business.

I have a blind date tonight, and I know with 100% certainty that I’m getting lucky. There shouldn’t be any surprises, not for one as jaded as me, but when I walk into the penthouse suite of L’Etoile, everything changes.

1) For one thing, Bea is heartstoppingly gorgeous. Pale green eyes and endless freckles. Curves I want to spend all night exploring, as if her body was made for me.

2) Her innocence makes me want to use my entire inventory of bedroom tricks on her and then invent a few more.

3) Except that . . . she’s a virgin.

I can initiate her into the world of desire without letting her get attached, can’t I? A few hours of tutoring, and at the end of the night a small fortune will be deposited into my bank account.

Yes, you read that right. There are many words for what I do. After all, mine is the oldest profession. I’m an escort, which means this date is nothing more than a mutually enjoyable transaction.

But once I realize one night with her won’t be enough, I’m the one who’s screwed.

AN

REVIEW:

I would say thank you to Skye Warren for returning us to the Den in Tanglewood. Where we meet male escort Hugo who only works Saturday nights as he is at the top of his game. When he is sent to L’Etoile hotel penthouse suite, and there he meet Bea a beautiful young woman who is also a virgin.
I not going into more of the story as you have all read the blurb, but this story is much more than you expect. Both Bea and Hugo have demons left over from earlier in their lives, and they live with them every day.
I really enjoyed this love story set in a place we’ve become familiar with. This is completely standalone, but introduced some new characters that I am sure we will meet again. This was a beautiful love story told completely from Hugo’s POV and yet I was unaware of that until now. The writing was addictive I was so immersed in the story, and enjoying Hugo falling in love I didn’t notice much else. I can’t recommend this book enough.

ARC Review: UNLOCKING SECRETS ( Keys To Love Series #2 ) By Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne @KennedyL_Author @Inkslingerpr

 

Kennedy Layne’s UNLOCKING SECRETS is available today! If you’re a fan of romantic suspense, you do not want to miss out on her incredible Keys to Love series. Check it out below and pick up your copy now!

About UNLOCKING SECRETS

A grim discovery in Lance Kendall’s home proved one thing—the residents of Blyth Lake had a serial killer in their midst. Now Lance had unintentionally put a target on his back. Worst yet, he’s made the only woman he ever loved known to a murderer.

A trip down memory lane with the man who’d broken Brynn Mercer’s heart wasn’t the smartest thing she’d ever done in her life, but their reunion was a slow burn of temptation that she couldn’t ignore.

Together, they will only have one chance to correct the past. Will the hidden secrets he uncovered threaten their love or solidify it for a future that has always been out of their reach?

REVIEW:

Unlocking Secrets is about Lance’s homecoming. Lance is the baby of the family. After 12 years in Military Service that means is as well trained as his brother, and considering how dangerous his home town is he needs to be.
Lance’s high school sweetheart Brynn now owns the town’s only decent bar. It doesn’t take long to realise they still feel the same way, and gradually they work their way back to each other.
More evidence is found about the murdered girl, and the community is in uproar, not knowing who to trust. A dangerous slice of life in Blyth Lake for members of the Kendall family. The love story between Brynn and Lance comes to a satisfying conclusion. To find out who the serial killer is we need more clues that hopefully can be found in Unlocking Lies and Jace’s homecoming. This series is becoming addictive with each book pulling me into the community in this small town.

Get a sneak peek at UNLOCKING SECRETS:

“Have dinner with me tomorrow.” Lance waited for Brynn to either accept his invitation or try to find an excuse as to why that wouldn’t be the best of ideas. Honestly, he thought it was a fantastic suggestion. He gently rested his hand on hers when it was obvious she was going to stand and push her stool back. “I’ve missed you for far too long, blondie.”

Brynn pursed her lips to keep from smiling at the old nickname he’d given her back in high school. She’d gone through a phase of listening to the old rock band, and he’d caught her singing at the top of her lungs at one of the intersections in town. It was in that moment when she hadn’t thought anyone was watching that he’d caught a glimpse of the carefree woman she was on the inside. That one hapless unguarded moment had captured the heart of a teenage boy.

There were times throughout the last twelve years that he wasn’t sure he’d ever gotten his heart back, because he’d never been able to fully commit to any other woman. Then again, it might have had to do with the fact that he’d been deployed every so many months.

Military life was certainly hard on relationships, let alone committed ones.

“We went our separate ways, Lance,” Brynn said softly, though he could hear her regret. Still, she slowly pulled her hand from underneath his. “We can’t change what was done.”

“You’d be surprised at what could be changed if you want it bad enough.”

Lance stood and reached for his wallet, but the narrowing of her caramel colored eyes had him rethinking his gesture.

“This was two old friends having a drink,” Brynn said, tilting her head to one side as if she were sizing him up for some reason. “I’m not open for business.”

She only ever looked at him like that when she was about to propose something that would no doubt get them in trouble. He held up a finger and tossed her words back at her good-naturedly, though he respectively disagreed with her belief.

“We can’t change the past, as you said, so I’d rethink whatever it is you’re about to suggest.”

“Touché.”

Lance waited a few more seconds, hoping that she would throw caution to the wind and propose whatever had been on her mind.

“Stubborn,” Lance muttered with a shake of his head, her laugh ringing out over the bar as if it were Christmas. He hadn’t realized how much he’d missed home until this very moment. What surprised him most was that he thought of her as home. “I have missed you, blondie. I can’t help but wonder how much time we’re both going to waste pretending we’re just old friends.”

About the Keys to Love Series

Their homecoming wasn’t so welcoming. Four brothers and one sister each gave twelve years of their lives to serve their country and fulfill their family’s legacy of service. As each of them return to their home of record, they weren’t prepared for what awaited them—an unforgivable sin that has been hidden for twelve long years. Secrets and lies are concealed in the dark shadows of the very town they were raised in, and the Kendall family will have no choice but to rely on one another to unravel the sinister evil that they all hold the keys to unlock.

About UNLOCKING FEAR

A chance mishap with a sledgehammer was the sole reason a chilling nightmare was unleashed in Blyth Lake.

Noah Kendall’s grisly discovery left him in the middle of a murder investigation and a neighbor who knew more than she was willing to say. Reese Woodward had returned to town with dark secrets, and he was determined to unravel them. While evil lurks in the darkness, seduction burns between them…only time was their enemy.

Will her secrets destroy what they’ve built, or can he earn her trust before the killer strikes again?

Title: SEED
Series: Evergreen
Author: Cassia Leo
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release: March 16th

About SEED

The explosive continuation of the Evergreen Series from New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo.

The seeds of doubt have been planted.

Two to six weeks. That’s how long it takes, on average, to get a divorce in Oregon.

With Jack convinced I betrayed him, I expect to be served divorce papers within hours of moving out. But weeks pass without word from Jack, and the papers never arrive. Though my heart isn’t ready to give up on him, I can’t shake the feeling that we may be better off apart. And Isaac is more than happy to help me move on.

But just as I begin to build some semblance of a life and career, a new and improved Jack arrives on my doorstep. Divorce papers are the furthest thing from his mind as he delivers news that both shatters me and restores my faith in the love we shared. But is it too late for us?

REVIEW:

Seed takes place straight after Dirt finishes, and Seed must be read after Dirt as this is not a standalone
My god I can’t wait for Bloom after Seed finishing on that note. You can’t help but feel Laurel’s devastation, not only losing her son and mother and then her husband asks for a divorce.
This book mostly follows Laurel’s struggle, and trying to make a new life without Jack. I felt for Isaac struggling with flashbacks after coming home from Marines
I didn’t expect the twist in the series, and no I’m not saying. So you will have read it yourself. It’s so hard to do a Non- Spoiler review, but it will be worth it when you read yourself.

REVIEW:

I have never read a Jennifer Rebecca book before, and it was much more than I expected. We meet Claire a detective who unfortunately works for her protective older brother who freaks out when Claire has to handle the kidnapping of a 6 year old boy.
Unfortunately he is right to be worried as the kidnapping brings to the fore all her nightmares. Enter Wes FBI Agent who has come to assist on the case. This is the first in a series and we learn a lot of what make Claire ticks, her strengths and her stubbornness.
The crime is solved completely in this book, but the larger story arc continues. This ends on a positive note. At times I was screaming at the kindle, it kept me on my toes all the way through.

4 star review

 

Exclusive Excerpt:

A shrill ring wakes me from a restless sleep—I had the dream again. My phone bounces around on the unfamiliar night stand that I must have left it on last night.

“Goodnite,” I rasp, my voice heavy with sleep.

“Detective, this is dispatch,” the disembodied voice from my phone informs me. “We were told to notify you that the body of a male child has been recovered at the rocks near the bottom of the falls. Possible match for your missing person.”

“I’m on my way.”

That’s all I need to know, and I am throwing back the blankets that are tangled around my body—my naked body. I pull my jeans on—without panties—and then my boots. I quietly search for my bra, hopefully not waking . . . not waking . . . I look over at the bed where a man with warm brown hair and a stubbled jaw sleeps on the bed that I just vacated. Nope, not ringing any bells. At least he’s good looking. I shrug.

I should be embarrassed about letting some random pick me up at a bar the next town over. But I’m not. This case has been . . . rough . . . and I needed to blow off some steam. Will I call him again? Uhh, no. Will he call me? He’d have to find me first. Did he have a good time? You betcha.

I see my bra hanging from a lamp shade and grab it, tucking it into my back pocket. I pull my tank top and t-shirt on, having found both rumpled on the floor. I reach into the front pocket of my jeans and find —thank God—a hair tie and toss my long, inky hair on top of my head in a messy bun. I pull on my coat that had been dropped by the front door.

I palm my phone and pull my keys out of the same pocket the hair tie came out of. I step out into the New Jersey cold without ever looking back at . . . Mike? No, that’s not it. I shrug to myself, fuck it.

I beep the locks on my car and climb in. I unlock the glove box and feel the weight of my badge and sidearm in my hand as I pull them both out of their hiding spot, placing both on the dash. I fire up my nondescript Tahoe and head towards tragedy.

My name is Claire Goodnite and I’m the best damn detective in the state of New Jersey and you better believe I’m coming for you.

REVIEW:

Playing his way is book 4 in the The Players Club Series and features Mac and Stephanie. Mac has purchased the club and decides he wants the special play suites refurbished and chooses her Interior Design Company for the job.
After Mac’s disastrous first marriage and the age difference he has avoided the chemistry between Stephanie and himself. Stephanie has had enough of Mac’s avoidance and decides refurbishing the 6 sex suites is her chance to show Mac, that she is who he needs. This is a story with delicious entertainment watching their battle of wills, and surprises they had in store for each other. I loved the names of the suites which I am not going to ruin. If you love a romance with plenty of heat then this for you.
So you have to read it yourself to find out. Even though this is part of a series this a standalone.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review

BLURB:

I don’t know what love is anymore.

Well, that’s not entirely true, but I’m going to tell you a little secret: I’ve lost the spark.

You know the kind of spark I’m talking about?

Where butterflies take flight in your stomach from two hands innocently colliding. Or catching your breath when you first meet someone attractive. Yeah, that spark.

Except I haven’t felt that feeling in forever; there is nothing left inside of me.

Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem–but I’m a writer on a serious deadline, and my editor is breathing down my neck for a romantic, Nicholas Sparks type love story. No pressure, right?

That’s how I find myself flying across the country to crash a wedding in the name of research, dress and heels stuffed into my small suitcase.

It should be the easiest book research ever. Drinking some free champagne, basking in the love of two strangers, and tapping into my romantic side. That will be a breeze. I’m a pro. I can handle this.

Until I mistakenly end up in the wrong hotel room, naked as the day I was born, with the sexiest human I have ever met staring me down, wondering what I’m doing taking a shower in his bathroom. I don’t think calling it research will get me out of this pickle.

 WEDDING CRASHERS TWC_Topless_teaser[130964]

REVIEW: 

Wow Meghan Quinn’s books get better and better. Having three writers as friends were so funny, Romance, Historical, and a Children’s author they were great fun. To be honest though I have a brand new book boyfriend, Beck was so much more than I expected. Once he found Rylee he was hooked. He had no eyes for anyone else.
If you love a good romantic comedy, look no further. I think this one of my favourite comedies it made me laugh so much.
I have to say Beck was a wonderful leading man, but Rylee’s best friends were great entertainment. I have to say my favourite part in the book has to be the trip to Las Vegas and crashing all the weird weddings

I not going to repeat the blurb, all I will say is Meghan Quinn is definitely my got too when I want to read a Romantic Comedy, and look forward to the next book in The Dating By Numbers Series.

ARC Review: DARK GLITTER ( The Wild Hunt Motorcycle Club ) By C.M. STUNICH and TATE JAMES @CMSunich

 

 

DARK DG[134093]

 

Dark Glitter
C.M. Stunich & Tate James
Publication date: January 24th 2018
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Thriller

Ciarah O’Rourke was born into torture.

A human spirit reincarnated in the body of an ancient fae goddess, she’s spent the last five years in iron shackles, her mind poisoned with magic for secrets she doesn’t know.

Waking up in a dirty alley with no memory of her escape, Ciarah finds herself in the hands of The Wild Hunt Motorcycle Club–a ruthless and violent group of bikers with faerie blood in their veins.

Arlo. Reece. Killian.

Three men drenched in death, sin, and old magic.

From their clubhouse in the middle of the Louisiana bayou, they’ll offer Ciarah the keys to unlock her memories and control the veil between worlds. But even her knights can’t erase the twisted scars that remind her they aren’t the only ones who hunt.

When The Wild Hunt rides, the souls of the dead join their parade.

All that’s missing now is their queen.

Goodreads / Amazon

REVIEW:

I do love a good paranormal, and this is a great paranormal. This is an adult paranormal, so we have hot sexy hunks. Our heroine Ciarah is found in an alley badly beaten and with signs of torture. Also no memory of how she came to be where she is? Or who she is?
As this a first book in a series it takes time to learn all the players, and background. We meet The Wild Hunt Motorcycle MC who rescue Ciarah, and realise she is the new incarnation of The Veil Keeper. There plenty of action in out of bedroom, or I should say not necessarily in a bedroom. This is book one of a three book series. Book two is up for preorder and I can’t wait. I have read Tate James before and enjoyed her books. This is an epic partnership, and I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and if you enjoy an adult paranormal with plenty of sexy hunks as this is the of a reverse harem book.

4 star review

 

Author Bio:

Tate James was born and raised in the Land of the Long White Cloud (New Zealand) but now lives in Australia with her husband, baby and furbaby.

She is a lover of books, red wine, cats and coffee and is not a morning person. She is a bit too sarcastic and swears too much for polite society and definitely tells too many dirty jokes.

Author links:

Website / Facebook / Instagram

C.M. Stunich is a self-admitted bibliophile with a love for exotic teas and a whole host of characters who live full time inside the strange, swirling vortex of her thoughts. Some folks might call this crazy, but Caitlin Morgan doesn’t mind – especially considering she has to write biographies in the third person. Oh, and half the host of characters in her head are searing hot bad boys with dirty mouths and skillful hands (among other things). If being crazy means hanging out with them everyday, C.M. has decided to have herself committed.

She hates tapioca pudding, loves to binge on cheesy horror movies, and is a slave to many cats. When she’s not vacuuming fur off of her couch, C.M. can be found with her nose buried in a book or her eyes glued to a computer screen. She’s the author of over thirty novels – romance, new adult, fantasy, and young adult included. Please, come and join her inside her crazy. There’s a heck of a lot to do there.

Oh, and Caitlin loves to chat (incessantly), so feel free to e-mail her, send her a Facebook message, or put up smoke signals. She’s already looking forward to it.

ARC Review: MARRIAGE OF INCONVENIENCE ( The Knitting in The City Series Book 7 ) By PENNY REID @ReidRomance

 

Marriage of Inconvenience, an all new romantic comedy standalone in the USA Today bestselling, Knitting in the City Series by Penny Reid, is LIVE!

MOI copy.jpg

There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson. . . and yes, she is *that* Kathleen Tyson): 1) She’s determined to make good decisions, 2) She must get married ASAP, and 3) She knows how to knit.

Being a billionaire heiress isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family’s legacy. But now, Kat’s silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy.

Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O’Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity—and heart—all in one piece.

Except, what happens when Dan O’Malley isn’t as indifferent—or as trustworthy—as she thought?

LIVE01.jpg

REVIEW:

MARRIAGE OF INCONVENIENCE has been a highly anticipated read for many of us for a long time — ever since the Vegas Incident — and I am happy to report that it does not disappoint.

 

As we’ve come to expect from this series, things aren’t all that straightforward for these knitters & co. I don’t want to reveal too much, because so much of the fun is in the unexpected directions Reid goes in or, rather, how everything falls in to place along the way. Not to mention how everyone has a role to play, a piece to contribute, and that made it very Team Knitting vs Bad Guy and I loved that rounded feel to it all. Especially perfect for a final book.

 

And speaking of those characters.. my goodness. Reid has been teasing us for months about Dan’s potty mouth and those curses seriously f…king delivered. The hilarity, the verbal hijinks, the honest and charming horn-dog-ness of him He’s just the right amount of protective, he’s totally uncompromising when it comes to what he wants, and he’ll even play a little dirty to get it. But he’s also a straight-shooter and after the initial misunderstanding that kept them apart, he’s quick to make sure there are no repeats along the way. Though that doesn’t mean there aren’t some little miscommunications that cause a bit of angsty confusion, they end up being totally hilarious. And the scenes with his mum? Just hysterical. I seriously loved Dan so so much. Have I already said that? Dan had me charmed from the beginning to the end.

There’s a difference between being honest with someone, and trying to drive someone away in the name of honesty.”

Kat, on the other hand, was totally unexpected. She was so different from what we’ve thought her to be, with such a dreadful past, and her struggles were so real. At times, of course, frustrating but they were frustrating for her too. And it was always coming from a good, if uncertain or insecure, place. There was an added element to her interactions with Dan that I really enjoyed and yeah, that’s all you’re getting out of me, no spoiling it! But also, I loved the balance of these two — the heiress and the ex-con — and how beautifully they could take down their opponents with an un-choreographed verbal take down while sipping a cup of coffee.

 

And of course, we couldn’t have a Knitting in the City book without the other knitters. I fully expected to cry after coming to the final page of this book, especially after some of the earlier scenes that spoke of change, and I didn’t. Why? Because Reid doesn’t end on a sad note. She gives us our last glimpse of these ladies in exactly the way we ought to remember them.

Her life is hell.

Now he’s back, and he’s different. Pristine. Gorgeous. Rich.

—-

White Knight is a standalone in the same world as King of Code, with its own beginning, middle, and end. You don’t need to read anything else to read White Knight.

white knight AN KU_preview.jpg

REVIEW:

White Knight is novella that features Catherine Barrington, Harper’s older sister from King of Code. We finally find out what makes Catherine tick, and we meet her teenage love Christopher.
We follow their ill-fated romance through flashbacks to when both 16 and separated,
As Catherine’s 29th birthday arrives and a birthday party is arranged and a visit from her teenage secret love. When we meet Catherine we see how everything looks from her point of view.
This is a sweet sexy story between two people that had never forgot each other, and Chris is determined to win Catherine heart. This is a quick interesting sweet romance.
This C.D. Reiss at her best you think you know how it’s going to end, but it is always something better. Even though this has characters from previous books this can be read as a standalone. If you have read King of Code it fills in some of the blanks from Catherine’s eyes. I can’t recommend this series of books enough.

I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review.

About the Author

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

CALLIE

I have a secret. It’ll get me fired if my boss ever finds out…which shouldn’t be a problem except for one thing: my coworker, Reid Morgan.

He’s cocky, aggravating, and that hot-as-sin mouth simultaneously makes me want to slap him and melt into the mattress.

Now that he’s discovered my secret, he’s doing everything in his power to take my job.

REID

I have a problem: my pint-size spitfire of a coworker who’s primed to take my promotion.

She’s infuriating, sexy as hell, and I just can’t seem to keep my hands off her.

Now we’re both vying for the same position…and only one of us can come out on top.

REVIEW:

Tap That, is a funny hot romance between Callie and Reid. When Callie starts work under temporary probation as manager of Tap That she doesn’t realise Reid the hot sexy barman expected to get the manager’s job when his old boss moved.
So when he gives her the stink eye and makes her life difficult. Callie fights back, as we know funny one-upmanship leads to sparks that get very hot indeed.
I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful romance, it had everything I enjoy snark, funny banter and hot sexy tension and plenty of entertainment all leading to a happy ending.

ARC Review: FROM THE TOP ( Blue Spruce Lodge #2 ) By USA Today Bestselling Author DANI COLLINS!

FROM THE TOP

TOP FTT[131527]

From The Top
Dani Collins
(Blue Spruce Lodge, #2)
Published by: Tule Publishing
Publication date: February 27th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Their hot New Year’s Eve wasn’t supposed to have consequences…

Fiercely independent after a difficult childhood, Ilke Lunquist devotes herself to one thing: skiing. She’s on the cusp of gold when an unexpected pregnancy throws her future into chaos.

Nathaniel Hart takes on the daunting project of restoring Whiskey Jack Ski Resort to be close to his young son, but with one failed marriage behind him, he avoids serious relationships.

They might be virtual strangers with only a baby in common, but Nate is determined to be part of his child’s life. Ilke didn’t become a champion by backing down from a challenge, especially not one where her child’s happiness and her own heart are on the line. When tragedy strikes, heartbreak draws them closer together. Nate discovers he’s more than ready for a bigger family and maybe, just maybe, Ilke will find the home that has eluded her all her life.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo / Google Play

 

REVIEW:

When we first meet Ilke she has just arrived at The Whisky Jack resort lodge to meet with Nate to let him know she pregnant. Nate you can’t help to warm up to him, he is struggling after his divorce, but he is working on the resort so he is close to his son Aiden.
I think I would have appreciated the snow in the resort if I wasn’t snowed in and shivering with a bug while reading it. I read this straight through and enjoyed it thoroughly because it wasn’t just about the main couple it was community at Whisky Jacks becoming more like a family. I did warm up to Ilke the more I understood her background and how she coped to survive.
This is not a dark romance, even though it not all sweetness and light. Never the less, it’s an uplifting and positive romance some of the story centers around the main couple Ilke and Nate. While in the background there plenty more to keep  you enjoying the story and keep your interest for next book in the series.
I have never read Dani Collins before, but I will definitely read the next in the series and go back to number one. Even though this is a series each book is a complete story for the main couple and can be read as a standalone. The reason hopefully want to read the others because there is an interesting cast of characters that have plenty to say. This is kind of read that makes you want curl up in an armchair in front of roaring fire and enjoy.

ARC Review: CHARMING HANNAH ( A Big Sky Novel ) By New York Times Bestselling Author KRISTEN PROBY!

 

Charming Hannah by Kristen Proby
Publication Date: February 27th, 2018

CharmingHanna_Amazon_WEB.jpg

From New York Times Bestselling author, Kristen Proby, comes the first in an all-new trilogy in her beloved Big Sky Series!

Hannah Malone loves her new town. Despite living in Cunningham Falls for five years, she’s still considered a “move in” by most of the locals, and that doesn’t bother her in the least. She’s the “new girl”, and she hasn’t regretted it for one day. This town is her sanctuary. Her home. The one place she finally fits in and feels safe after a lifetime of being different and running from the memories and a past so far away it can’t haunt her anymore.

As the newly appointed police chief, Brad Hull has the responsibility to keep his citizens safe and to maintain order. His roots in this town are deep—five generations deep, to be exact. Cunningham Falls, Montana is his town, and being a cop and protecting what’s his is his passion. Everything’s running like clockwork until a sassy redheaded doctor moves in and disrupts the order—and Brad’s focus.

She’s not just beautiful, funny, and strong. Hannah’s everything he’s been looking for in a woman. The chemistry is undeniable, and the heat in the bedroom is off the charts. Brad knew the minute he met Hannah that she was the one for him. He’s tenacious in his pursuit of her. But when the past catches up with Hannah, will Brad be able to protect her and their hearts?

REVIEW:

Charming Hannah is the first in a trilogy of books set in Cunningham Falls, even though some of characters may appear in each book, each book is a complete story and can be read as standalone.
Police Chief Brad Hull or” Chief Sexy Pants” is intent on charming Hannah the red headed sexy doctor, into his life, and that’s all he can think about. When they finally get together their chemistry is molten Hot.
It is a great to read an adult relationship where there are no silly misunderstandings. Brad will not let Hannah push him away when she get the anxiety attacks that plaque her life. He won’t be pushed away, he shows Hannah how much he cares and holds her through each one helping her through them.
When we first meet them they are both workaholics, as Brad became Chief of Police and Hannah is a Doctor an OB/GYN and works all the time with very little time left over for a personal life.
I loved meeting this great couple who gradually learnt to have to let another person in their lives. So this book follows Hannah and Brad as they learn they can have the life they want together. I loved reading about Cunningham Falls and the community that live there. This also part of the big sky series. The surroundings give you a feeling of being there where all the action takes place. I can thoroughly recommend this book, as it left me with a happy contented feeling.

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists.

Arc Review: DUTY BOUND (Angelbound Prequel Origins 0.5) By Christina Bauer @CB_Bauer

 Don’t miss this prequel novella to the best-selling Angelbound, told from Prince Lincoln’s point of view!

 

Duty Bound BC

DUTY BOUND

A PREQUEL TO THE ANGLEBOUND ORGINS

PUBLISHED FEBRUARY 27TH 2018

Genre: Fantasy/Sci Fi

Teens/ YA 

Goodreads

SYNOPSIS

 As the High Prince of the demon-fighting thrax, Lincoln knows he must marry for political gain. Not that he minds. For all of his eighteen years, Lincoln’s been bound to his duty. Fighting demons is his life, and he’s never given romance a second thought. Instead, the High Prince lives for the days when he leaves his hidden realm to fight demons on Earth.
Then, everything changes.
Lincoln and his nobles become forced to visit Purgatory, the home of quasi-demons (who are mostly human with a bit of demonic DNA). Here Lincoln spies Myla Lewis, a lady warrior who enflames his heart, ignites his interest, and inspires his respect. Trouble is, Myla’s also a quasi. By thrax law, Lincoln must kill anything demonic—not date them.
For the first time in his life, Lincoln wonders if he’ll follow his duty…or heed the demands of his heart.

REVIEW:

Finally I have the opportunity to read Duty Bound the prequel to Angelbound. In some ways we all feel we know and love Lincoln. The one thing that stood out for me was the pressure he is under and how alone he feels. As we know in the later books, the trouble the house of Acca cause for our feisty heroine in future books in the Angelbound Series.
Also after reading this book, it explained Lincoln’s absolute devotion the Myla as she was made for him. The book is an eye opener as it was great to hear Lincoln voice. It’s a treat I wouldn’t have wanted to miss. More from Lincoln Please Ms Bauer. I’m just off to read Angelbound for Myla and Lincoln’s first meeting again. As always a great pleasure to read any of Christina Bauer’s writing and this no different. All the Angelbound fans will love this, and if you haven’t read the series this will lead you into The Angelbound Series.

Professional hockey player Vladimir Kolnikov grew up in a Russian orphanage with nothing. Now, the 23-year-old left wing for the Las Vegas Sidewinders has everything he ever dreamed of, including a brilliant career and a fiancée whom he adores. At the altar, Vlad’s cold feet have nothing to do with the ice or the beautiful woman he left standing there, and everything to do with not knowing who he really is. Before he can contemplate a future with her, he has to bury his past.

A-lister Rachel Kennedy puts on a smile for the camera every day, but it only became genuine the day Vlad skated into her life. He made her happier than any woman had a right to be, until he left her just minutes before their wedding ceremony. When Vlad’s betrayal is followed by another devastating blow, it may be more than she can handle.

As Rachel searches for healing, Vlad searches for answers, which leads him back to Moscow where an unexpected discovery changes his life forever. As his world tilts on its axis, he struggles to come to terms with his past at a time when Rachel needs him the most. Can she ever forgive him or will Vlad be out in the cold?

**Vladimir is a STANDALONE hockey romance, part of the Sidewinders Series*

VLAD_TEASER2[132450].jpg IS LOVE ENOUGH

 

REVIEW:

Vladimir is slightly different from the normal type of Sports Romance we used to. When Vlad meets Rachel it was almost love at first sight. Everything appears to be moving so well until Vladimir does the unthinkable. This is told in dual pov using flashbacks of the relationship. Vladimir loved Rachel, but did not feel good enough because off his feeling of abandonment after being left by his mother as baby.
So Vladimir goes the Russia to found out why he was deserted as baby.
While Vladimir is finding himself, life has kicked Rachel in the teeth, and Vlad going was only the beginning. That’s all I am saying as you need to read this intense and complicated romance.
This book has complicated emotional content and you can’t help being pulled into the story. So get your tissues out you going to need them.

About the Author:

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.

Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.

Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

A captivating new sexy standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. 

Special Forces veteran and Dark Knights Motorcycle Club member Bullet Whiskey lives to protect his family, their bar, and the residents of his small hometown. He’s rough, unapologetic, and haunted by a secret, painful past.

After losing her boyfriend and her father, Finlay moves back to her hometown to be closer to the little family she has left. She needs her temporary job at Whiskey Bro’s to get her catering business off the ground, and she’s determined not to let the gruff, arrogant mountain of a man Bullet Whiskey scare her off.

Finlay is everything Bullet has never wanted. She’s afraid of his dog, afraid of motorcycles, and sweet enough to give him cavities, but as she weaves her way into the hearts of everyone around him, he’s powerless to resist her charms. Passion ignites, but trust doesn’t come easily, and when their pasts collide, Bullet finds out the true meaning of protecting those he loves.

REVIEW:

I love this series, and always enjoy life in Pleasant Harbour and the Whiskey boys. I loved Bullet he was a great character, with no real idea on how talk to Finlay, “Would you like a ride on the Bullet train.” I do love Melissa’s stories you know you get strong sassy woman and Alpha hotness in the men you know are just waiting for the right woman.
They are standalone stories which you can visit, and enjoy the romance and catch up with past characters in the stories. I loved this one Bullet was a great hero, was suffering for his time in the service with flashbacks and nightmares. That all changed the more Bullet got to know Finlay. Finlay was a wonderful sunny personality  and just the right girl for Bullet.
As always with a Melissa Foster book an enjoyable read with great characters and plenty going on, which left me with a smile on my face and sense of satisfaction from a great story.

Blog Tour + Review: POISON KISSES Part 3 By New York Bestselling Author LISA RENEE JONES

 

A sexy STANDALONE novel featuring Seth from the Dirty Money series! It is not necessary to read the Dirty Money series prior to enjoying this book. POISON KISSES will be released as three novellas in back to back weeks on Feb. 6th, 13th, and 20th!
Title: Poison Kisses Part One
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: February 6, 2018
 
Amanda Skye made me want her. She made me trust her. She made me love her. Then she betrayed me. And now, a madman brings us together again and before our battle with him is over, I will make sure that she never forgets my name: Seth Cage. The Fixer for The Brandon Family Empire, but to a covert CIA operation, I will always be The Assassin. And to Amanda, I will be the man who made her moan, sigh, and beg. And I will make her beg.

REVIEW:Part one

Poison Kisses one introduces Seth from the Dirty Money Series and is told from his pov. When the CIA call him to help track down a terrorist, and a scientist by the name Amanda. Seth jumps at the chance to pick up Amanda as he has a bone to pick her from three years before when she betrayed him and another agent died.
As always with one Lisa’s book we have very feisty and kick ass women in Amanda. This is the first in a trio of books and being released weekly. So it was disconcerting being used to longer books, this is a quick read that obviously finishing on cliffhanger.

Title: Poison Kisses Part Two
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: February 13, 2018
 
I loved her. She left me. She betrayed me but now it’s time to open the closed doors. I’ll tell her my secret if she tells me hers. Our history, is more than lies. It’s our story, and I will do whatever it takes to reveal it all. I’m the Assassin, She’s The Poison Princess. We’re going to kill the bad guys, but we’re still deciding if we’re enemies. The one thing for certain, is we’re both going to strip down and get bare.

REVIEW:Part Two

This one starts as number one finishes, and as always with Lisa’s books it starts we with a reminder from book one. We follow Amanda and Seth as the assignment getting underway, with flash backs to three years previously. This is still Seth’s pov, and we see how their relationship progressed to love three years ago when they were working as a team. We have more action, and find out why Amanda is “The Poison Princess”. They go well together as Seth is known as “The Assassin”. They start having sex, and the old feelings begin resurfacing good and bad. So when they disagree it a dangerous situation, and so we leave number two with a standoff between them.

Title: Poison Kisses Part Three
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: February 20, 2018
 
Those you love, know how to hurt you. Those you love, know what to hide, because they know what is unforgivable to you. Now that I know what Seth hid from me, I want the secret to be the lie. I don’t want to kill him. I don’t want to leave him. I guess that’s why they say there is a fine line between love and hate. I love and hate that man with such passion, that it damn near hurts. But now, as we face down our shared enemies, as we are lead right back to an explosive discovery about my family, and to the night Seth and I parted ways, we will both be exposed in every way. And it’s time for me to decide if I plan to love Seth Cage for the rest of my life, or kill him, before he kills me.

REVIEW: Part Three

This is what we have waiting for, Amanda’s pov for what happened in the past and the final chapter of this mission. Working on a mission to save lives, and clear Amanda’s name and look after Julie the cat. It took a while for me to get used a faster form of storytelling, so I looked on this like a single mission to find the bad guys. Save lives, fall back into love and get the girl. Complete the mission and happy ending. I have simplified it, but it felt too quick for me. I love the more intense storylines, but if you enjoy an action packed story at a quicker pace this will suit you. As always with one of Lisa’s books I left wanting more. Overall I think this deserves 4 stars because I enjoyed it, but not as much as some of Lisa’s other books. 
4 star review
“I hate you, Seth Cage,” she proclaims in what I know to be an out-of-character emotional outburst that tells me I’ve rattled her.
 
And earns her my cool reply. “There’s a fine line between love and hate, sweetheart,” I say, but I don’t want her to hate me and it pisses me off. What is it about this woman that makes her my weakness? “I wonder if I missed the taste of poison on your lips, or did I just choose to ignore it?” And I need to know that answer. I close my mouth down on hers, my tongue sliding into her mouth, rough, angry, but she doesn’t respond. She doesn’t even touch me, and I won’t allow her that win. I fold her against me, cupping the back of her head, my tongue licking against hers until she finally fucking moans, and responds.
 
And damn it, she still tastes just as good as she did, just as right when she’s wrong, but at least I know now. Everything right about this woman will always be wrong, including the moment she bites my lips, drawing blood. “I still hate you,” she hisses.
 
Wiping my lip, I’m wildly aroused by what just happened, which proves how fucked in the head this woman makes me. And while I’m certain we’d both be more than comfortable with the idea of me pulling her skirt up and fucking her right now, and letting her think she’s manipulating me again, that has to wait until I have her someplace to myself. I release her, snatching up her gun and shoving it under my jacket, inside my holster. “Meet me at the south exit. If you aren’t there, I’ll kill you and then move on to Plan B and kill Franklin. And yes. This is a test. Pass it or you’ll be in my bed, in handcuffs for the rest of your life.”
 
“You said you’d kill me.”
 
“After I cuff you to my bed.”
 
I move to the door and exit into the staff hallway, and then the main school hallway, the scent of her, sweet jasmine, clinging to my skin. Damn it, I used to love that smell.
 
I’m halfway to the exit when suddenly she’s beside me. “As I know you know from whatever file they gave you on me,” she says without looking at me, “I watched people die because of that man in China seven years ago when he set off poison gas in the subway. I’m not sitting back while he does it again.”
I don’t reply. I just keep walking, but now she’s by my side again, as she was for three solid months, three years ago. Her words and actions are reminding me of what I’d found so damn appealing about this woman: her conviction and her moral compass that were greater than mine, that made her too good for me, and yet, made me want her all the more. Only, it was an act, a façade maintained even now and well. She’s an enemy in an uncomfortable alliance. I don’t believe a word she has said.
 
We reach the exit and I pause with her directly to my right, my eyes capturing hers. “You’re with me now and no one gets to take you from me. And I’m the only one who gets to kill you.”
 
“You’re so damn romantic,” she says. “No wonder I missed you.”
 
“You missed me, sweetheart?”
 
“That wasn’t literal.”
My lips curve. “And yet you kissed me like you missed me.”

REVIEW:

This is a tale about a family of vampires, nice well brought up vampires. They have been vampire for over a hundred years so they all quite strong. It is always great to have a new legend to read with plenty of adventure.
There plenty to read with this imaginative story with links to legends I haven’t read before. Anna is taking some evening classes and meets Eric in her Art class, immediately they click and slowly get to each other. Eric is human, but the love and chemistry overwhelms them. There is danger and adventure and I enjoyed every minute of it. So if you love a good paranormal with a difference then this is for you. I will definately keep an eye out for more from this author.

ARC REVIEW: WICKED SOUL ( Ancient Blood #1 ) By NORA ASH

wicked_ebook[129897].jpg BC

Wicked Soul
Nora Ash
(Ancient Blood, #1)
Publication date: February 10th 2017
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

He saved me… And then he blood-bonded me. Now I’m his.

My first meeting with a Chicago vampire went better than expected.

Up until that night, all I knew about vampires was limited to a few common facts: they drink blood, they get a mean sunburn and if you find yourself alone with one, you’re dead.

Except he didn’t kill me.

Sexy, broody Warin clearly had his own reasons for sparing my life and tying me with his blood, but if he’d known how much trouble I’d attract, I bet he wouldn’t have bothered. When he blood-bonded me, secrets even I didn’t know about myself came to light.

Secrets that will pull us both deep into the eternal war between vampires and the witches determined to rid the world of their evil.

We have only one choice now: fight the forces hell-bent on breaking our bond…

Or die.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

REVIEW:

I have been lucky this month with the opportunity to read some paranormal romance, and enjoy it. At one time that was all I read and then I took a break, only reading a few of my favourite authors. So I was looking forward to reading this one, and I didn’t even read the blurb as I wanted to go in blind. I so glad I did I thoroughly enjoyed it. We have witches, skin walkers and vampires and I loved every minute of it.
We have Olivia, who is kidnapped for reading a romance with a vampire hero in it. In this world the public know that vampires exist. Olivia is then thrown in a cage with what she thinks is an ordinary young man. That’s all I‘m to say because I don’t want to spoil it.
This book has love,sex, action as fighting for your life action and did I say witches. There is plenty to get your teeth into, and this is the beginning of a Series which I am going to read. So if you love to read new Paranormal Series give it a go.

ARC REVIEW: MORE THAN LOVE By New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author SHAYLA BLACK!

 

More Than Love You, an all-new sexy romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black is LIVE!

03 MoreThanLoveYou

I’m Noah Weston. For a decade, I’ve quarterbacked America’s most iconic football team and plowed my way through women. Now I’m transitioning from star player to retired jock—with a cloud of allegation hanging over my head. So I’m escaping to the private ocean-front paradise I bought for peace and quiet. What I get instead is stubborn, snarky, wild, lights-my-blood-on-fire Harlow Reed. Since she just left a relationship in a hugely viral way, she should be the last woman I’m seen with.

On second thought, we can help each other…

I need a steady, supportive “girlfriend” for the court of public opinion, not entanglements. Harlow is merely looking for nonstop sweaty sex and screaming orgasms that wring pleasure from her oh-so-luscious body. Three months—that’s how long it should take for us both to scratch this itch and leave our respective scandals behind. But the more I know this woman, the less I can picture my life without her. And when I’m forced to choose, I’ll realize I don’t merely want her in my bed or need her for a ruse. I more than love her enough to do whatever it takes to make her mine for good.

More Than Love You is a sexy and emotional standalone novel in the More Than Words Series.

MTLY-AN.jpg

REVIEW:

This is book three in the More Than Words Series, and this time features Griff and Maxim’s little sister Harlow. As her brothers are Real Estate Agents and need someone to house sit. So after her aborted marriage to Simon this is an ideal situation. So there she is sunbathing in her tiny red bikini when in walks a large handsome sexy man who happens to be newly retired super bowl championship NFL player Noah Western.
Noah arrives at his new home early and thinks it’s a mirage as he sees his perfect woman. This is how our lovebirds Noah and Harlow meet and its instant lust. This is one hot romance, with lots going on in background to derail it. I loved Noah, he is a great guy with plenty of patience, and as far as Harlow and her doubts are concerned. All though this part of More Than Words Series each book is a complete story. Even though the characters and overall story arc is continued in order of the books. This is an emotional and sexy read with a happy ending with no nasty surprises. I let you read to decide the rest. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as me. I loved it HOT HOT HOT and did I say Noah is Hot and sexy.

ARC Review: HAIL MARY By LANI LYNN VALE

HAIL MARY by Lani Lynn Vale. This is the next standalone installment of The Hail Raisers Series! Check it out and grab your copy today.

Title: HAIL MARY
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Series: Hail Raisers
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release: February 9th
Photographer: Furiousfotog
Cover Model: Quinn Biddle

Synopsis

Mary Persephone Hail
Mary—well-wished-for child.
Persephone—destruction.

Hail—well that speaks for itself.

Her name is painful to think about. Mary, his newfound daughter, isn’t a wished-for child. Persephone, though? Yeah, destruction is a fitting description. And Hail? Yeah, that’s just the final f-you.

The moment that her mother drops her off on his doorstep, Dante’s hell becomes complete.
Or so he thinks.

What can make life worse after losing one’s wife and kids, you ask? Here’s what: being given a baby that depends on him for her survival. Finding out that the baby’s mother is dying of brain cancer, and has a husband that he never knew about. A husband that Dante knows in the marrow of his bones is trying to kill her just as surely as the cancer eating her brain.

Dante’s a bad person. He’s done some not so nice things, and now he’s being punished for his misdeeds. Karma is finally catching up to him.

This child that he’s been stuck with is of his flesh and bone. This child is his salvation. This child is the final nail in the coffin of his wife and daughters’ too short lives.

He doesn’t want this child.

But this child will save him whether he wants her to or not.

With the help of a friend—yes, a woman friend—Dante finds his way back to life. But what he finds when he gets back isn’t the same life that he left behind. Turns out, he has to start living a new one. One where he’s suddenly having feelings for a friend that helped him get through some tough times, and loving a daughter that won’t let him quit.

REVIEW:

This is the first time I have read a book from this author, and now I’m hooked and realise I have a lot of reading to catch up on. As this was my first read it didn’t take me long to pick up this author very distinctive writing style and I was away.

The fact I hadn’t read any of the Hail series did not detract from my enjoyment of this book.
I assume you have read some of the blurb, Dante is heartbroken over the loss of wife and children in a car accident some years previously and was still in deep mourning when a Mary is delivered by her mother who is on the brink of dying.
Mary is only a baby, and needs all his love and attention. Marianne who was Mary’s mother only best friend Cobie is having a bad time and Dante steps in to help, and whether he likes it or not begins to join the living again.

Dante fights his feelings for Cobie with all his strength.
This is also an action packed storyline running through the book, with many twists and turns so I am not giving anything away. I will say this books takes place over a couple of years so we get to know the characters well, and Dante definitely becomes my hero. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and thoroughly recommend it. Now I off to read some of the others.

ARC REVIEW: MIDNIGHT VALENTINE By J.T. GEISSINGER is NOW LIVE!!

 

About MIDNIGHT VALENTINE

True love never dies.

Megan and Cassidy were childhood sweethearts who thought they would be together forever. Fate had other plans. Soon after they were married, Cass’s life was tragically cut short. Still grieving her soul mate five years later, Megan moves to the small town of Seaside, Oregon, hoping to rebuild her life.

Her first night there, she meets the town recluse, Theo. Withdrawn, guarded, and mysteriously silent since a terrible accident left him scarred, Theo takes an instant and inexplicable dislike to Megan. But as their paths cross again and again, Megan becomes convinced there’s more to Theo than meets the eye.

When she discovers the reason for his silence, his nightmares, and especially his pointed dislike, Megan becomes convinced of something far more astonishing.

Is a second chance at a once-in-a-lifetime love possible, or is a broken heart the cruelest kind of liar?

REVIEW:

Wow what a different kind of love story, this is the first book I have read by this author and it certainly won’t be last. I don’t know how I’ve missed her books.
When Megan moves to Seaside, Oregon to open a Bed and Breakfast called The Buttercup Inn. The Inn which is a beautiful Victorian building that unfortunately needs lots of renovation.
As soon as Megan arrives in town, she meets Theo Valentine the town’s recluse who happens to be the contractor working on the inn’s restoration. Whenever Megan needs help he is always there.
I loved Megan’s snark and running commentary, especially “moody raincoat guy “when she meets Theo. At its heart this is a love story, with sad tragic things they can happen in life. If you want something different, special kind of romance, then this is one for you. I loved it, and read in one go. I am not going to give anything else away. I read this and didn’t know what to expect, and it enhanced the experience.
