BLURB:

His lust could devour them.
Her love will free them both.

After being left for dead by her people, Aliena wakes up under the care of alien pirates. She escapes, only to be captured by a creature straight from her darkest nightmares, bent on the destruction of everything she holds dear.

An Eok warrior turned outlaw, Kamal is one to be reckoned with. He is on a mission for the Eok nation, and his only goal is to find and save the humans before he can return to his old life. He has no intention of allowing a headstrong human female to get in his way.

As Aliena embarks on a mission to rescue her uncle from Minister Knut’s clutches, Kamal is at a crossroads. If he chooses to help the human, the price might well be his own life.

When the Mating Venom unleashes its torment, Kamal has to decide. Will he change his ways and claim Aliena’s heart, or is the life of an outlaw too hard to leave behind?

Publisher’s Note: This steamy, thrilling sci-fi romance is the second in the Eok Warriors series, however it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone.

REVIEW:

Venomous Hunger is a SC-Fi Romance set in a future world where humans have no freedom. Most having been captured and kept in breeding facilities and then sold as slaves. At the moment there is a lot of books full of alien passion around.
This is one of the better sci-fi romances I have read this year. It is full of action and not just in the bedroom. It kept me gripped from start to finish. We have a feisty kick ass female Aliena and a big blue alien Kamal who loves Aliena his bloodmate.
Aliena grows in confidence and bravery, always caring for others wellbeing before her own. Even though Kamal is a seven foot strong warrior and pirate. Aliena protects him just as fiercely. A sexy action packed adventure with a big dash of sex.

About Mary

Mary grew up in the quiet peace of a small rural village in the heart of Quebec, Canada.

She spent her childhood chasing butterflies and catching frogs, playing in the mud and generally being as unladylike as she could. Her love of science led her to complete a mechanical engineering degree at the Ecole Polytechnique of Montreal, where she met the love of her life.

Years later, as she enjoyed the role of full time mom to her two wonderful children, she decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer.

She now write as much as her busy schedule allows to bring to life her inner world, filled with exotic planets, mysterious creatures and off course, hot, alpha heroes and the women who melt their hearts.

When she’s not writing, she can be found in the garden, walking her dogs or playing with fire in her kitchen as a part time hit-or-miss chef.

She loves to hear from her readers, so don’t be shy and drop her a line!

Audiobook Blog Tour: THE CULLING by RAMONA FINN, Narrated by Stacey Glemboski@staceyglemboski

 

Author: Ramona Finn

Narrator: Stacey Glemboski

Length: 8 hours 39 minutes

Publisher: Relay Publishing

Released: Mar. 21, 2018

Genre: Science Fiction

In a solar system where The Authority decides who lives and who dies, only one of their own executioners can stop them.

Glade Io is a trained killer. Marked at a young age as an individual with violent tendencies, she was taken from her family and groomed to be a Datapoint—a biotech-enabled analyst who carries out the Culling. She is designed to identify and destroy any potential humans that threaten the colonies: those marked as lawbreakers, unproductive or sick. But when she’s kidnapped by rogue colonists known as the Ferrymen, everything Glade thinks she knows about the colonies, and The Authority that runs them, collapses into doubt.

Pulled between two opposing sides, and with her family’s lives hanging in the balance, Glade is unsure of who to trust—and time is running out.

Ramona Finn writes about courageous characters who fight to live in broken, dystopian worlds. She believes a person’s true characters is often revealed in times of crisis, and there is no greater crisis than the worlds that she drops her characters into!

She grew up sitting cross-legged on her town’s library floor–completely engrossed in science fiction books. It was always the futuristic world or the universe-on-the-brink-of-extinction plotlines that drew her in, but it was the brave characters who chose to fight back that kept her turning the pages.

Her books create deep, intricate worlds with bold characters determined to fight for their survival in their dystopian worlds–with a little help from their friends. And, of course, romance is never out of the question ;).

This is book one in the trilogy. This book starts just as a culling takes place, and six year old Glade watches her father struck down and then his body is dragged away.
The Colonies are on the different planets, and are controlled by The Authority who are rule all the planets. They are responsible for the culling of all citizens showing violent or murderous tendencies.
The Culling take place every ten years.
They used datapoints, humans with tech integrated so they can read brainwaves, so they can kill anyone with dangerous and murderous thoughts.
Even though Glade’s father was taken in the last culling, Glade had no doubt the Authority was only trying to create a better life for everyone. Glade is now a Datapoint and will be responsible for the next Culling.
All is well until Glade is kidnapped by the Ferryman, and the she spends time with the leader. Everyone shows her kindness, but Glade is still firm in her believe in the Authority.
This is a gripping story keeps you listening, with superb narration. I listened to this in one go, as I didn’t want to stop. I ended listening through the night. I know this is geared to young Adults, as Glade is only 16years old. This oldie really enjoyed it, and I’m getting ready to listen to book two The Authority.

ARC Review: SHATTERED BEGINNINGS ( No Longer Broken Duet #1 ) by LILLY WILDE @authorlilly

 

 

Note: This is Book One of the No Longer Broken Duet.
 

 

Branch McGuire

Hot, arrogant and life of the party …

 

I easily transitioned from high school jock to egotistical playboy. And when the chance to leave Blue Ridge presented itself, I signed on, dropping everything without so much as a second thought.

Settling into the lifestyle of a professional athlete, I indulge in the pleasures of my high-profile status. The only nod to my roots is my annual trip for a celebrity spotlight fix, but when I receive a call that forces an impromptu return home, everything I left behind comes barreling to the surface.

Ragan Prescott

 

Determined, resilient and born of a drug addict … 

 

From the outside, my life was that of a free-spirited girl who grew up in a normal household, yet nothing normal happened behind the doors of a house I came to hate.

Breaking away from the family dysfunction, I embark upon the life I’ve always wanted in Blue Ridge. But when I fall prey to the charms of a silver-tongued devil, it becomes a life I have to escape.
Will a small town hero be my only chance at survival? Will my broken soul mend his?
Can our Shattered Beginnings become the fragile pieces from which love is made?

 

 

 



 

Shattered Beginnings by Lilly Wilde

“Lilly Wilde was from her first books my absolute favorite author. She has obliterated any other author with this book.. The writing, the way it progresses through their day to day lives… So vivid and full of raw emotions, so true… Just wow… Wow…”

 

Goodreads Reviewer 

 

“Shattered Beginnings sets itself apart from the very onset in that it makes no apologies for its emotion, sometimes visceral, connecting to and tugging at your heart. I loved that this is not the typical love story. These characters have been through so much and a glimpse into their childhood experiences shows that they have survived but not without scars. The author doesn’t shy away from the ugliness that life has offered and instead shows their perseverance and survival in such a way that you root for them, even when making mistakes. The story reads with a cinematic feel, allowing the reader to go along for the ride, getting to know each character on a personal level at a real time pace. They’re written so well that even the side character storylines and arcs are engrossing and all 
consuming.”

 

Goodreads Reviewer


“As always, you weave
a beautifully told story, even if it breaks my heart.”
Amazon Reviewer
SHATTERED BEGINNINGS 70_SB Teaser

 

REVIEW BLUE

Shattered Beginning is not a fluffy sweet story, but never the less I was mesmerised and pulled into this heartbreaking tale . Ragan and Branch both have been damaged by their upbringing. Reading about Ragan and what she suffered  during her upbringing and what she went through as a child was heartbreaking, and I felt like I was suffering with her.
Branch with his mother’s health issues, and worrying about his brother, and the way it affects the decisions he now makes as an adult.
When Branch has to return to Blue Ridge when a family emergency arises, he ends up staying for a  longer period than he first thought. This is when he goes into his local diner and Ragan is his waitress. Ragan is the only women that doesn’t drool all over him, so he is intrigued.
This is a slow build with regard to the romance, not that there is any doubt there is a deep attraction between them. After finding out their backgrounds you understand why they are both gun shay . I’m impatient  to find out what happens next between Ragan and Branch. Unfortunately we have to wait for the next book to see if two broken people can love each other.

The next book in Kennedy Layne’s sexy, suspenseful Office Roulette series, MOTIVE, is available now! Read a sneak peek, find out more about MOTIVE below, and pick up your copy now!

 

 

About MOTIVE (Office Roulette #2)

The Office Roulette trilogy continues with an epic battle between blame and forgiveness…

Rye Marshall had it all—wealth, prominence, and the love of his life. But nothing lasts forever, and his perfect world came crashing down around him. When the dust settled, he found himself alone and starting from a clean slate.

Grace Dorrance had made many mistakes in her life, but one stood out above the rest—an epic ending to a complex and passionate relationship. She left her former lover’s life in complete ruins and tried her best never to look back at the wreckage.

Seconds chances are hard to come by, but even more difficult when Grace is arrested for a murder she didn’t commit. This gives Rye the perfect motive to forgive and forget, allowing for new beginnings. Unfortunately, someone’s playing a game of office roulette with everyone’s lives.

Read an sneak peek from MOTIVE!

 

Grace had needed Rye to stay across the room. She was able to think better when he wasn’t touching her, but then again, he knew that. Well, if he was going to go down that road, so could she.

“Apparently, my connection to Brandon is out for all the world to see and dissect. No one really knows that you and I reconnected, and it needs to stay that way. Now that I’ve been cleared, the media will hopefully move on. The media, police, and public are always looking for connections in cases like these, and they’ll hit pay dirt when they figure out our history. You need to go to work and stick to your daily routine until this whole thing blows over.”

“Don’t you see that this gives us the advantage? Let us be the ones who control the narrative before this asshole tries to use this against us,” Rye suggested confidently, taking the coffee cup from her hand and setting it gently on the countertop. He leaned in close so that the entire front of his body was touching hers, causing an instant reaction. “I know how much it bothers you to lose control of the situation.”

Grace could have easily kept arguing, running them in circles until they each had to call a stalemate. Fortunately, an impasse would be in her favor, but all she could think of was that this could very well be the last time he was in her apartment for quite a while… at least until the police had caught the individual responsible for Brad’s death.

“You’re so mean,” Grace whispered encouragingly, tilting her head back as she finally allowed him to press his warm lips against her neck. Did he truly believe that she would fall for this type of persuasion? It would have been laughable had her body not responded to his in kind. Well, it seemed that she would have to improvise and turn the tables to her advantage. She ever so slowly ran her right hand over his wrinkled shirt until she was cupping the bulge in his pants. The vibrations of his groan traveled to every erogenous zone in her body. “Why don’t we think on the merits each other’s positions while we take a shower?”

Rye pulled back, his smoldering gaze zeroing in on her and clearly trying to find the angle she was working in her bid to get him to see things her way. He was a very highly intelligent man. He had to see that he would lose without her cooperation.

“Are you attempting to distract me with sex?”

“Aren’t you doing the very same thing?” Grace countered, purposely slipping past him and heading for her bedroom without looking back. She made sure to emphasize the sway in her hips as she walked away. “Why don’t we see who comes out the victor?”

READ MY REVIEW:

Motive is book two in the Office Roulette Trilogy and follows the misfortunes of Grace and her secret lover Rye Marshall from a rival company. This follows Grace and Rye relationship and the impact of Brad’s murder, and how it has affected their lives. Lucky for Grace she has the support of her two best friends after the events that happened at the end of Means.
This is spoiler free, not that I know who the killer is as new suspects come to light, as more clues are found. We follow the fortunes from each of her friend pov’s as each book follows one of the friends and their partner’s. The next book follows Cynthia and Gareth, and as this is a trilogy we should find out who the killer is.
When we follow each indivuial couple, the story is told from a dual POV, so we get a balance view. The more we find out the less people you can trust.

Publisher: Strange Roads Press

Released: Sep. 18, 2017

Tara Walker dreams of more excitement than slinging plates of seafood for Cape Cod tourists, but as she learns when she is attacked and forced to fight for her life, fate sometimes has a funny way of giving you exactly what you wish for. Faced with strange new powers and embroiled in a murder investigation, Tara must now race to uncover the secrets of the ancient Fury that has woken inside of her – and of the evil that stalks her.

As if Tara’s life hasn’t gotten complicated enough, she is forced to ally herself with Jackson Byrne, witness to her assault and uncle to a pint-sized oracle whose fate is intertwined with hers. Skeptical, stubborn, and oh-so-sexy, Jackson wrestles with demons of his own.

Narrator Bio

I am a literacy specialist with experience performing in a number of roles. Having spent a great deal of time speaking publicly as both an educator and an administrator, I have accrued a varied skill set that I feel confident I can use to advance and advertise bodies of work. My passion for literature drives me to bring the voices within it to life.

  • Tell us about the process of turning your book into an audiobook.
    • Fury’s Kiss was the first audiobook I produced. Since I self-published this book, I wanted to do the same with the audiobook. I used a marketplace service offered by Audible.com for authors and narrators to connect and produce audiobooks that will be distributed through the site. Potential narrators submitted auditions and I selected the wonderful Elizabeth Tebb!
  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
    • Absolutely! I always think about the possibility of my books being adapted into all sorts of different mediums, whether audio, film, graphic novel, or something else I haven’t thought of yet.
  • 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?
    • Elizabeth and I kept in contact by email and touched base every month or so, but I don’t like to micromanage anyone so I trusted her to let me know if she needed support from me. I provided her with a character sheet and notes about accents and pronunciation of some unusual names, but that was pretty much it! When she was done recording the book, I listened to the chapters and provided feedback for minor revisions.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?
    • My problem tends to be the opposite of burnout – I always have more enthusiasm than time! I usually have several projects on the go at one time so that I don’t get bored with any one project in particular. Right now I am working on a comic book and a game script in addition to my usual romance writing schedule. For me, burnout is more of a problem in relation to my day job, so I have taken steps to make sure I have enough energy for my work as a writer (which is my real passion).
  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
    • Of course! I love the way a good narrator can make you feel as if the story is coming to life. I also like the convenience of being able to multitask while listening to a good book. My favorite place to listen to audiobooks is in the car.
  • How did you celebrate after finishing this novel?
    • I don’t know that I did actually celebrate at the time. I am a lawyer by profession and I finished the first draft while I was studying for the bar exam. I started writing this book as a way to de-stress while I was in law school and didn’t start seriously thinking about publishing it until I had re-written most of it several times over. The real celebration happened when I published Fury’s Kiss and it won the Kobo Emerging Writer Prize a few years later.
  • In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
    • As a reader and an author, I prefer a series to a stand-alone. From a reader perspective, if I like a book, I want more! From an author perspective, books in a series are easier to sell and readers seem to prefer them. It’s fun to create and explore a world in detail, although the con is that it can get hard to keep track of everything (especially if the series is based on mythology, like in the New England Furies series!).
  • What bits of advice would you give to aspiring authors?
    • Don’t give up! Even if it seems like things aren’t working out the way you hoped, writing is really just a numbers game. If you keep working at it long enough, you will eventually enjoy some degree of success, whatever that looks like for you. Learn as much as you can about the business side of publishing and never sign a contract you don’t fully understand. Finally, don’t compare yourself to other people. Roosevelt was right when he said that comparison is the thief of joy.

I don’t what to say about this book. This book follows Tara’s journey, and what happens after  she is attacked, with her life in danger something ancient awakes inside her.
Tara lives with her 2 best friends Alex and Rachel, who try to help Tara, come to terms with her new path in life. Tara is lucky to have the support of Nora, Ruby her young daughter and Ruby’s Uncle Jackson who gets involved against his better Judgement.
This quite a fast paced adventure with evil chasing them and sometimes catching them. This is a great paranormal story which uses ancient legends and myths to bring to life this entertaining book. When Tara’s Fury  Electra helps save the life of a young oracle Ruby. So instead of waiting for evil to come them, they decide to go and face it. This is book one, so we have quite a bit world building, and getting to know the players. This book was definitely Tara and Jackson’s romance, so we have a complete story with a happy ever after for the main couple. Obviously a larger story arc will follow on to book two. A great start to an interesting new take on ancient myths and legends.
Elizabeth narrated all the voices including the male. I wasn’t pulled from the story once, so for me that is a big win. I was riveted from start to finish.

ARC Review: THE SUCCESSOR ( The Holbrook Cousins Saga Book 1 ) by ALINA JACOBS @AlinaJWrites @XpressoTours

THE SUCCESSOR IS NOW LIVE

 

 

 

Successor[166059]

The Successor
Alina Jacobs
(Holbrook Cousin’s Saga, #1)
Publication date: July 5th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

He’s gone from the battlefield to the boardroom; now this billionaire has to win his girl.

Hot tempered Grant Holbrook has just returned to the states and he’s already in trouble.

In jail and estranged from his adoptive parents, Grant thinks his luck is turning around when Kate, his birth father’s gorgeous assistant walks into the police station to bail him out.

As the newly discovered heir to a multi-billion dollar fortune, Grant is the talk of New Cardiff, his father’s exclusive New England hometown, and not everyone is happy that he’s there.

Deemed the most eligible bachelor in America, Grant has to run an international corporation and fend off the woman that want him.

But there is one woman who won’t throw herself at him—Kate.

How can he convince her that he needs her in his life not just for a night but for the rest of his life?

Sleeping with the boss’s heir is not in her job description.

Kate has sworn off men. After a string of bad relationships culminating in the absolute worst night of her life, Kate promised herself she was going to concentrate on her career and bury all of her bad decisions.

But when her billionaire boss asks her to find his long lost heir after a Holbrook family tragedy, Kate finds herself falling for the volatile Grant—but she cannot give in. She would lose her job and ruin her reputation if she were caught sleeping with her boss’s son.

Kate is the executive assistant of billionaire Walter Holbrook, and she prides herself in achieving the impossible. But when Grant starts pursuing her, he may be the one problem Kate won’t be able to solve.

As secrets from her past start to resurface, will it drive her into his arms or will she ultimately resist Grant Holbrook?

The Successor is book 1 in the Holbrook Cousins Saga, but can be read as a standalone novel. This 80,000 word steamy romance novel has no cliffhangers but a very happily ever after.

Goodreads / Amazon

REVIEW:

This is quite an unusual book, it’s not a fluffy romance it’s much more.
When Grant was adopted as a baby, he was very unlucky in his adoptive parents. So he joined the military straight from school. Grant is now a decorated Marine when Kate his birth father’s assistant finds him, and helps him to fit into a new life.
When Grant meets Kate he falls hard, and tries to be the man he thinks Kate needs and wants. Unfortunately there is a lot going in the background that prevents Kate from being wholeheartedly on board with the relationship.
I loved Grant right from the beginning when he rescues Gus from the pound. Poor Grant needed something of his own when going into an alien environment of his new life.
This is told from dual POV’s which is my preferred way of reading. As this is the first in the series, there is a lot of background with the family dynamics. This is the first book I have read by Alina Jacob and I’m please to say it won’t be my last. I enjoyed this book even though it tackles quite a few important issues. So I wonder who will be next Mark or Carter the other Holbrook cousins. I can’t wait.

REVIEW:

What a delightful RomCom “Oh Baby “ is, and the hero of this tale Jack Pecker Decker the town’s playboy is a HOT firefighter. Every time he takes a run he has all the women in the town hot and bothered. All except his next door neighbour Juliet who has to put up with the parties and loud music.
Every time they meet up, sparks fly, and even though they both feel that tingle nothing happens until someone leaves a baby on the doorstep. Then Jack finds out his a father to a delightful little girl.
This is a great start to DLIF dairies as we are introduced to a great bunch of characters, and I was laughing hard, and after reading the book I still had a big smile on my face, and can’t wait for the next in the series. There is nothing sexier that a big man cuddling a baby to get the ovaries twitching. Jack was really a sweetie, and Jules really loved him when she got to know him properly. This is a lovely start to a new series that is a delight to read. Told from dual POV.s so we get to know both characters equally.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

 

Stephanie St. Klaire is a Pacific Northwest native currently living in Portland, Oregon with her husband, five children, and two ferocious lap dogs that are used to the finer things in life like sleeping all day. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found with a plate full of taco’s, a side of bean dip, and probably some gummy bears while being a little bit hippy and a lot bit busy mom’ing and wife’ing.

When she’s not tossing around gritty crime show inspired serial killers and diabolical bad guys, she likes to make people pee their pants a little with a good romcom. Sometimes, her worlds collide, and she writes really funny stuff right before she kills people off on the pages! She loves murder and mayhem as much as a good laugh and HEA! That’s why she’s a die-hard Hallmark junky but loves her gritty crime shows – balance!

Stephanie has always been a story teller, with the gift of “gab”, and a life-long goal to be a writer. Unfortunate circumstances with her health, finally afforded her the time to do so. Irony at its best, she began writing her first novel at an adverse time, to escape her circumstance and explore the stories in her imagination for relief. She is happy to share those stories with her readers, and bring a little fun, entertainment, and of course smexy characters to the pages.

Follow Stephanie St. Klaire on Social media to learn more about her, how often she really eats taco’s, and to keep up with her work.

Blog Tour + Review: MURDER GIRL ( Lilah Love #2 ) by New York Times Bestselling Author LISA RENEE JONES @LisaReneeJones @AmazonPub

MURDER GIRL BLOG TOUR[166464]bANNER

Murder Girl[166466]BC

Title: Murder Girl

Author: Lisa Renee Jones

Release Date: July 10, 2018

Series: Lilah Love #2

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.

I enter the building and ignore the pretty brunette behind the triangle-shaped stone desk and head to the stairs. 
 
“Excuse me,” she calls out, but I ignore her. Kane knows I’m coming. He has people watching me and this building. He knows I’m in the building by now. I don’t need “sweet thing” down there to announce me in yet another way. I’m at the top of the stairs before she finishes her fourth excuse me, which is now a bit louder, as if I just haven’t heard her the other three times. I turn down the hallway and walk toward the desk outside Kane’s office where Tabitha sits, minus any more originality today than the last time I was here. She’s still bleached blonde, with her fake, giant-ass boobs hanging out of a silk blouse with numerous buttons undone that turn it into a slut show that could have been professional. 
 
I pass her without a word, approaching Kane’s double doors, when she says, “Drama follows you, Lilah Love.” 
 
“No,” I say without looking at her. “Dead bodies follow me.” I glance over my shoulder at her. “You should remember that.” 
 
And with that statement that really had no purpose other than it felt really damn good, I open Kane’s door. 
 
I step inside Kane’s office and find him sitting behind his desk, just in time to hear him say, “She’s here,” into his intercom and then release the button. 
 
With exaggerated drama that I reserve for moments when I want to be a smart-ass or simply announce my fucking presence, I use my body to shut the door, but I don’t hang out and wait for it to grow roots. I rotate and charge toward Kane and that King Mendez desk of his that he doesn’t get to use as shelter. By the time I round the wooden atrocity, he’s standing, towering over me in a charcoal suit and a purple shirt with black stripes and some sort of black-and-gray tie. It’s flashy, expensive, and works on him when it would not on nine out of ten other people. But then, while I keep a low profile—aside from the door drama, of course—and favor my black nondescript looks, his entire persona says “look at me” with the intended message of “I have nothing to hide.” A lie he tells the world and, after he drugged me to keep me from knowing what happened last night, apparently me. 
 
We stand there for a beat or ten without words before he says, “Lilah,” and the very fact that he says it like sex is all it takes for me to snap. 
 
I slap him in the face, because my bare fist is too small to hurt him the way his jaw would hurt me. It’s also a disgrace to a man to be slapped, which is why one UFC fighter I’ve watched here and there does it to his opponents. And Kane is my opponent. He turns his head with the force of the blow, my palm stinging in the aftermath. 
 
“Well now, beautiful,” he says, fixing me with a brown-eyed stare. “I know you like it rough, but is now the time? We both have questions we want answered.” 
 
I slap him again, and this time he catches my wrist before I pull back. I try to slap him with my free hand, and he catches it as well, this time before contact. “You get two, not three.” 
 
My gaze flicks to the handprint on his right cheek that matches the one on the left before I meet his stare and say, “Two was pretty damn satisfying.” 
 
“Why didn’t you tell me about your stalker?” he demands, his question low, lethal, his anger banked just beneath the surface, while mine is the cherry on top of every lie he’s told me. “Because we both know that’s what we’re dealing with here,” he adds. 
 
“Let go of me, Kane,” I bite out, my voice taut with impatience. No. Make that a desire to smack him again. 
 
“After you tell me about your stalker and the notes.” 
 
“Let go of me, Kane,” I repeat slowly, “or my next move will be a knee to your family jewels. And I promise you, it will be hard enough that neither of us will have to worry about our urge to fuck ever again.” My jaw sets hard, but he doesn’t release me. “You drugged me,” I remind him, “and then searched my house before leaving me with a gun that I was too drugged to use. So if you think I won’t do it—” 
 
He releases me but doesn’t step back. “I didn’t leave you with a gun you couldn’t use. I kept you at my house until sunrise, and I left a team guarding your place, front and back. I protected you, like I always do.” 
 
I don’t analyze why that makes me angrier. That’s for later. For now, there is this: “I’d pull my gun on you and back you off, Kane, but I swore the next time I did that, I’d shoot you. And I need information from you.” 
 
“I’m all yours, beautiful,” he says, holding his hands out. “I always am.” He motions to the sitting area to his left and behind him. “Let’s sit and make this peaceful.” 
 
“Peaceful, my ass,” I say.
MURDER GIRL 1[166461]

REVIEW:

We start as book one finishes, as always with a Miss Jones book we start straight away with plenty of action and some murders committed to start a war between the cartels. Kane Mendez still has a large part to play in her life.

This is action all the way through, and I was riveted by this tortured and brilliant kick ass woman that Miss Jones has created.

Quite a bit happens in this episode of Lilah Love, The more we learn the more complicated and frightening the situation becomes. I hope I have conveyed the essence of the book, but not any spoilers. If it was a while since you read book one, as regular reader of Lisa Renee Jones Series, at the beginning is a reminder of all the main characters at where we are in the story.

This is not a standalone, you must read Murder Notes first or you will be lost. If you haven’t read book one, it is well worth it.

Title: Murder Notes

Author: Lisa Renee Jones

Series: Lilah Love #1

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?

MURDER GIRL 2[166462]

ARC Review: THE REAL DEAL by #1 New York Times Bestselling Author LAUREN BLAKELY @LaurenBlakely3 @InkslingerPR

 

 

Sometimes you need to find a boyfriend-for-hire in the most unusual of places…

What do you get when you mix a bad boy with a heart of gold and a smart & sassy heroine with a desperate need for a fake relationship? THE REAL DEAL, a brand new, standalone romantic comedy from #1 New York Times bestseller Lauren Blakely! Get a copy of your next favorite feel good rom-com now!

 

 

✮✮✮THE REAL DEAL is here! Grab your copy today! ✮✮✮

April Hamilton wants you to know she hasn’t been on GigsForHire since that time she sold her futon after college. She doesn’t even spend that much time online. And even if she did, she would not be looking up personal ads. But going home alone for her family’s summer reunion is an invitation for every single relative to butt into her personal life. She simply can’t handle another blind date with the butcher, the baker or the candlestick maker from her hometown. So when she finds the GigsforHire ad for a boyfriend-for-hire, she’s ready to pay to play.

Heading Home and Need a Buffer? I’m the REAL DEAL.

Theo Banks has been running from the past for years. He’s this close to finally settling all his debts, and one more job as a boyfriend-for-hire will do the trick. He’s no gigolo. Please. He’s something of an actor, and he knows how to slip into any role, including pretending to be April’s new beau — the bad boy with the heart of gold.

Even if it means sleeping in close quarters in that tiny little bed in her parents’ inn. Even if it means spinning tales of a romance that starts to feel all too true. What neither one of them counts on is that amid the egg toss, the arm wrestling, and a fierce game of Lawn Twister that has them tangled up together, they might be feeling the real deal.

She only wanted to show her family once and for all that she had no need to settle down.

He didn’t expect to have the time of his life at her parent’s home.

They didn’t plan on loving every single second of the game.

But can a masterful game of pretend result in true love?

REVIEW:

Wow I have to say it, this is pure pleasure to read. I loved this book, it was just full of all the right ingredients. A sexy swoony guy that I fell for, definitely my kind of man. A lively intelligent woman that doesn’t need a man, but fell in love with Theo because it was meant to be. They were so great together, and I just love ” I remember when”
I loved the advert on Craigslist for a fake boyfriend, I would have hired him. Sometimes a book has all the right ingredients, but is not always a winner. When it’s a Lauren Blakely it usually is, and this is no exception. I loved every minute, and was glued to my kindle from start to finish. I can’t wait for the Audio edition because I will buy it and listen to Theo and April brought to life for me again. I want to hear Theo’s cartoon talking vibrator voice come to life. This was sexy, funny and great entertainment, and I couldn’t stop smiling. This is definitely 5 stars from me.
