BLURB:

 

It’s been ten years since Parker Drew and Gus Duke have seen each other, but it’s like no time has passed. They were hot and heavy back then and the spark’s still there now. But they’re no longer fumbling kids and they know what they want… what they need. For Parker, that’s giving up control to more than one guy.

Gus is more than willing to deliver because he wants to share a woman with Kemp and Poe. One look and he knows that’s Parker. All three big cowboys are going to give her everything she ever imagined… times three. Oh, she’ll get so much more than just the tip.

Remember: With a Vanessa Vale book, one cowboy is never enough. In this smokin’ hot series, each heroine gets an extra helping (or two) of Grade-A Beefcake.

REVIEW:

Parker and Gus Duke were each other’s first love and sexual partners, so as soon as Gus knows she is back as he realises Parker is the “ONE” they have been waiting for. That is Gus, Kemp and Poe his partners in the Veterinary Clinic.
When Parker comes home because her mother is poorly. So, while working Parker rescues a stray dog that needs treatment. When Parker arrives at the clinic and encounters Gus and the sexual zing is still between them.

Then she meets two more grade A beefcakes and can’t believe all three want her, and she can’t wait to get to grip with three tall, well build studs. Well if you read Vanessa, this is a quick read with plenty of the hot stuff. I loved Parker a strong woman that just needed lots of sex so three men comes in handy. Off course its instalove, and quick read to put the smile on your face.

ARC Review: WOLF TAMER ( Claiming My Pack #1) by YUMOYORI WILSON! @YumoyoriAuthor @XpressoTours


Wolf Tamer
Yumoyori Wilson
(Claiming My Pack #1)
Publication date: October 6th 2018
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

An Orphan Girl. A Group of Wolves. A Destined Fate for War.

Don’t you ever wish to find where you belong? A place where you can rest your head without worrying about being jumped or your possessions being taken from you? Not like I had much, to say the least.

A pendant, an ancient blade, and a picture of my murdered family were all I had left when I was five years old. Foster homes to homeless shelters, I never found a place of refuge. I simply didn’t belong, and everyone made it their duty to remind me of my predicament. Until I finally came across a place that felt like home.

Sacred Moon Shelter for Endangered Wolves. I’d stumbled upon the sanctuary when I was near death, but I was miraculously saved.

Since then, I’ve become a Wolf Tamer; the only one who can get close to touching the six rare breeds. When I’m with them, I feel safe and sometimes wish I could be like one of them and escape this cruel world.

But such inhumanity strikes home, a group of hunters shows up, ready to take my wolves to an unknown place or murder them in cold blood. I won’t allow them to kill the only true family I’d ever known.

My name is Harper Blake, and I vow to claim and protect my own.

Wolf Tamer is a new Wolf Shifter Reverse Harem Romance. Recommended for 18+ Audiences.

Goodreads / Amazon

REVIEW:

My first memories are from when I was 5 years old when I am running for my life and Ian a seven year finds me and takes me back to a wild life sanctuary specially for Wolves.
Harper Blake runs for her life , fighting for her life when she found by seven year old Ian. They become inseparable. While living at the sanctuary she takes care of the wolves. This is a great start to a new series and covers a lot of world building.
As we get to know Ian and Harper who spend all there time together. We watch them grow up and enter into a relationship and gradually she realises someone is killing female shifters. A great imagination introducing the world this book is set in.
I loved the wolves pack names Carter being the alpha with Ian, Liam men’s names. All through the book Harper has no idea their shifters. I loved Yumoyori’s great imagination and can’t wait to read the next book after all the revelations at the end of the book.

REVIEW:

Well I’m just trying to cool down after finishing Dirty Sexy Games, my god Weston King was so hot, and I couldn’t help but fall for him. After reading Weston in some the other books I thought he was a lightweight. This is a wonderfully entertaining Duet, The marriage of convenience is a well-used theme in romance novel, but this is in a league of its own.
Laurelin Paige is a master when she writes about rich entitled playboys, but even better when she redeems them when they meet that one woman who they love unconditionally. This is a beautiful, sexy, Hot love story. We really get to know Elizabeth a lot more part two, and what makes her tick.

Elizabeth and Weston have so much emotional baggage and secrets. Falling in love and being together brings them more understanding. A wonderful ending to a delightful sexy duet. This has been out in audio before the book, all I can say is I have the best of both worlds. Elena Wolfe and Jacob Morgan are the perfect combination for the Audio book, Jacob’s voices really turns me on.

BLURB

The conclusion of the surprising love story begun in Dirty Sexy Player.

I didn’t have a plan for him.

He was the means to an end, a workaround to the cruel terms of my father’s will that would allow me to inherit his company.

I hadn’t planned to fall for him.

I hadn’t planned to enjoy every minute of our wedding, hadn’t planned to gasp his name so many times that night, hadn’t planned for the sexy games on our honeymoon.

He didn’t plan for his secrets to come out.

And neither of us planned for heartbreak.

 

 

 

 

 

EXCERPT

As soon as we were in our suite, the bomb exploded, the bomb being Elizabeth. “We’re alone now, so just tell me straight. You knew I was always going to France. If you wanted to be with me, you had to know it would involve living there. Is that not something you’ll even consider? Is it Sabrina? Is it Reach? Is it Donovan? Because if it’s fucking Donovan who’s keeping you from—”

I grabbed her hands, which were flying in midair as she yelled, and pulled them behind her back at her waist as I cut her off with a searing kiss, my tongue plunging into her open mouth, robbing her of oxygen.

When she was thoroughly kissed, her lips pliable, her body sagging in my arms, I let her go.

“I’m tired, Elizabeth. I’m not discussing fucking anything tonight.” I took off my tuxedo jacket and threw it on the desk. Then I began working on my cufflinks. “What I think we both need now is to release some tension.”

Her spine straightened, her neck growing longer as she stared at me in shock. “You think we’re going to have sex now?”

I loved how she made it sound disgusting, like she wasn’t interested, even when I’d just been kissing her and had felt the lean in her body, had tasted the desire in her mouth.

Two could play the indifference game.

I shrugged. “I’m fucking someone tonight. If you want it to be you, you better take off your dress.”

Her mouth slammed shut, and she only seemed to consider it for two seconds before she was fumbling with the zipper at her back. She struggled with it, but I didn’t help her. It made me stiff to watch her frantically trying to strip down, just because I told her to. Just because she thought I might find a better offer if she didn’t.

Like there was a better offer than her.

Like there was anyone but her.

I didn’t take my eyes off her as I unbuttoned my vest and tossed it to the side with my jacket. I’d loosened my tie by the time she got her dress undone. It fell to the floor and she was left wearing a strapless corseted bra, one that had a low back so it couldn’t be seen with her dress on, and matching lace panties—both in a white ivory so virginal and bridal it seemed dirty.

Jesus, she was a fucking wet dream.

And she was my wife.

EXCERPT:

“You have me now. I’m not going anywhere. I promise.”

“You can’t promise that.”

“I can,” he says, his voice deep, rich, his tone absolute. “I will.”

“People die.”

“Yes, but if I die, you’ll know how much I loved you. You’ll know I’m still with you.” He cups my face. “But you don’t get to get rid of me that easily. Whatever waits for us here, there, or anywhere, we’ll get through it together. That’s what husbands and wives do.”

Warmth and calm wash over me. “Husband,” I whisper.

“Wife,” he replies, his gaze raking over my lips, and lifting. “About that zipper.”

“Take me to our hotel and I’ll show you how it works.”

“I can’t wait that long,” he counters, reaching for said zipper.

I catch his hand. “Cole,” I warn urgently. “You have to wait.”

I’ve barely finished that reprimand before his mouth is crashing down on mine and he’s kissing me, his tongue stroking my tongue. One of his hands settles at the base of my spine, molding me close, all those hard, sinewy parts of him pressed to all the soft parts of me and I moan. Another second later, and my zipper is open, and he’s pressed my hands over my head, his fingers dragging over the thin lace of my barely-there bra, teasing my nipples.

“We can’t do this here,” I whisper, and I mean it, despite the moan that rolls from my throat, as his fingers slide between my legs, heat pooling low in my belly and spreading to the touch of his fingers.

“And yet we are,” he says.

Voices sound just outside the door, and I panic. “Cole,” I hiss.

He reacts, and in an instant, his arm is around my waist and he’s pulling me into a long, narrow stall, shutting the heavy door and locking it. Women, two I think, enter the bathroom, and Cole steps back in front of me, his cheek pressing to mine as he whispers. “I’m going to make you come with them standing right there.”

My fingers curl on his chest. “No,” I silently whisper, but he swallows the protest with a deep lick of his tongue, and just like that, he’s grabbed my panties and yanked them away.

And then he’s kneeling on one knee, his lips pressing to my belly, and the effect is an adrenaline rush up and down my body. My fingers tangle in his hair and I tell myself it’s to pull him away, but his tongue flicks my belly button and I bite my lip to silence my pleasure. I know where that tongue is headed and it’s almost too much.

EVER AFTER 2[5103] TEASER 2

Audiobook Review Tour: SEMESTER ABOARD ( More Than Magic #1 ) by ELIZABETH KIRKE, Narrator by Starla Huchton @more_than_magic

Author: Elizabeth Kirke

Narrator: Starla Huchton

Length: 14 hours and 34 minutes

Publisher: Elizabeth Kirke

Released: July 4, 2018

Genre: Young Adult; Fantasy

Jen Maddox is a few days into her summer study-abroad program and has loved every moment on her cruise ship turned college campus. Everyone tells her the experience will change her life, but none of them realize just how right they really are.

One night, Jen goes out on deck and encounters five other students. She knows Charlie from one of her classes, and he’s a funny, friendly, regular guy. Picture-perfect Dani and his gorgeous wife, Mariana, live right down the hall from Jen, and she has seen TS, who’s built like a truck, around the ship, and recognizes the cute but quiet Thomas as well.

Then Jen sees something that isn’t humanly possible. Jen would have thought that it was all a dream if not for the fact that Charlie, Dani, Mariana, TS, and Thomas are making every effort to cover it up. Suddenly, the five of them are everything but normal, and Jen is determined to figure out what they’re hiding.

When she does, her life really does change. Jen expected to spend her summer studying the cultures of Latin America; she never dreamed she’d learn about a magical culture instead.

But Jen’s childhood fantasy come true is about to turn into a nightmare; there’s something on the ship. Something dangerous. Suddenly, everyone on board is threatened by a creature that Jen never even believed existed. Jen and her new friends might be the only people who can stop it!

Now Jen has to learn everything she can about her new world before it kills her. And her friends. And maybe everyone on the entire ship.

Elizabeth Kirke lives with her husband, two young sons, a hound-mix, and two turtles. She wanted to be an author before she even knew what an author was. She used to say that she wanted to be an artist, but that was only because she was too young to write and had to tell stories with pictures instead. She hasn’t stopped writing since she learned how. It wasn’t long before she dreamed of becoming an author and couldn’t be happier now that that dream is a reality.

If she isn’t writing, she’s probably doing something involving books, baking, gardening, or yarn.

Like most slightly-nosy, avid readers, Elizabeth can’t resist trying to catch a peek at books she sees people reading when out in public to see if she can figure out what it is. While doing just that one day, she realized that it would probably be the coolest-thing-ever if she caught a complete stranger reading one of her books. That’s her new dream.

WebsiteInstagram

Jennifer is having the time of her life spending a whole Semester aboard a ship sailing down the South American Coastline stopping for trips and excursion as well as taking classes to keep up with their syllabus.
One night needing fresh air Jennifer witnesses something that shouldn’t be possible. To keep Jennifer from saying anything that tell her all will be explained at the next port. So for next couple of days she followed and becomes friendly with the most fascinating group on the boat.
No one is more surprised than Jen to find she is a witch. So Thomas starts training her, Jen is over the moon. Unfortunately as this is a first in a series there is a lot of magic world building. This is a fun paranormal adventure on board ship with great locations. The narration was excellent with all the voices that had to be done. A great start to a new series, and can’t wait to see how Jennifer progresses with her magic.

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

  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
    • Never in a million years. When I originally wrote the book I was actually posting it, chapter by chapter, in the Original Works section of a fanfiction website! Back then, ebooks were hardly even a thing. Merely publishing Semester Aboard was a pipe dream and having an audiobook never even crossed my mind. I hardly even expected to be where I am now, with three (plus a short story collection) books in the series and three more on the way. Not to mention having Semester Aboard win an award for Best YA Paranormal!
  • How did you select your narrator?
    • Sheer luck! Starla and I were already Facebook friends thanks to the networking power of the author world. We actually sort-of worked together before, when she made a wand for me. (Actually, she made the top half of a wand to fit onto the bottom half of my existing one. The top broke off and I buried it with my beloved cat, but hated to have a broken wand just sitting around.) Anyway, I posted on Facebook asking my friends if they know any narrators and briefly described what I was looking for. Starla replied and sent a link to books she had already done. I knew she was the perfect fit right away, and the rest is history!
  • 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?
      I gave Starla an absurdly detailed document with pronunciation, bios, and even descriptions and pictures. It was probably above and beyond what she needed, but since she brought it to life, it was worth it! We chatted back and forth a lot for the first couple of chapters, but after she had the characters down I just let her do her thing!
  • Were there any real life inspirations behind your writing?
    • Big yes! I was part of the Semester at Sea program back in college. I spent a summer on a cruise ship, operated (at the time) by the University of Virginia. I took college courses with UVA and visiting professors, while touring Latin America on the ship. I strongly encourage college students to do it! That experience inspired this book, in which the main character is a student in the same program. As she navigates magic and vampires, her voyage takes her to the same ports that I visited. While a lot more magic is thrown in, the characters do have many of the same experiences in different countries and on the ship that I did.
  • In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
    • Interesting question. I think each pro and con play off each other. A con of plotting a series is that you need to plot out multiple books, and come up with character development and arcs that span more than one book. So, the pro of a stand-alone is that you can wrap it all up with a bow. However, it could also reverse! A con of a stand-alone is that you have to keep everything succinct enough to be contained in one book, but exciting enough to keep readers interested. Likewise, a pro of a series is that you can get really in-depth and intricate, and you have room to grow. I think it all depends on your strengths and weaknesses as a writer.
  • Is there a particular part of this story that you feel is more resonating in the audiobook performance than in the book format?
    • I think it all benefits from Starla’s amazing performance. That said, I’ve gotten some negative feedback in the past regarding how slow some of the portions in the ports go. As you just read, they were based on my real experiences, so I think I got a bit too wordy and nostalgic as I describe them. But, Starla brings them to life and you really feel the excitement through the main character’s eyes as she reads. I think it really picks up the dragging parts. She also adds a wonderful sense of urgency to the fight scenes!
  • If you had the power to time travel, would you use it? If yes, when and where would you go?
    • I would head straight to 1797 and visit George Washington. I worked for several years as a historical interpreter on his estate and would love to pop in and see it in its prime. Not to mention catch some time alone with the General to talk to him.
  • What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?
    • People say that!? Ugh, people will complain about anything for the sake of taking enjoyment away from someone else. 100% disagree. First, there are numerous medical reasons to listen to audiobooks, and that alone should be worth something. Vision impairment, arthritis, dyslexia…The list goes on. Heck, even a nasty migraine that makes opening your eyes torture, but you can’t fall asleep. And who doesn’t want to read a book while stuck in traffic? Why not listen? And, most importantly: people enjoy them. That should be enough. We should be rallying against people who want to censor or limit access to books, not people making them more accessible.
  • What’s next for you?
    • Phew! The very next is Wrought-Iron Roses, the 2nd book in my paranormal romance series, The Curse Collectors. The first book opens with three sisters who inherit their aunt’s antique shop. Upon arrival, they discover that she was a rune-caster, and was in charge of breaking the curses cast upon all of the antiques in her shop. One of the sisters gets cursed, so they have to learn how to cast runes to save her.
      After that, I’m working on the fourth (fifth if you count Danio’s Prelude) book in the More than Magic series! I’m also hoping to get the audio for the next one lined up.
      Lastly, I’m working on the outline for a brand new series! This one is a paranormal cozy mystery series. I’m quite looking forward to writing it.

  • Favorite Food: Pizza
  • Favorite Movie: Twilight
  • Birthday: June 17
  • Born: Oregon
  • Occupation: College student

In this book: Jen thinks the only “magical” thing about her summer on a cruise will be the cruise itself, little does she know, some of her new friends are quite a bit more magical. In fact, they aren’t even human. Learning about magic seems like a dream to Jen, but it quickly turns into a nightmare; something is on the ship with them. Something dangerous. Now, the lives of Jen, her new friends, and everyone on the entire ship are threatened by a creature Jen never even believed existed. And it’s up to Jen to stop it.

Thomas Clark

  • Height: 5’ 8” and borderline too thin
  • Eyes: Green
  • Hair: Brown
  • Favorite Food: Teppanyaki
  • Favorite Movie: Journey to the Center of the Earth (the original)
  • Birthday: October 8
  • Born: New York
  • Occupation: Special Agent with the Magical Enforcement and Secrecy (MES) agency

In this book: Taking time off for college is encouraged by MES, although Thomas and his friends are pushing the limits by signing up for a college cruise. Nevertheless, he’s ready for a fun summer of cruising and a three-month break from his job as the Resident Magic Coordinator with MES. In spite of all of his experience welcoming magical beings to town, he’s never seen anything like Jen. He’s never felt this way about anyone either. But, when a dangerous magic sneaks aboard the ship, Thomas knows it’s his duty as a Special Agent to stop it, and the lives of everyone on the ship may depend on what he can, or can’t, do.

Char Smith

  • Height: 5’ 6” and stocky
  • Eyes: Red
  • Hair: Red, orange, and yellow
  • Favorite Food: Anything spicy
  • Favorite Movie: The Shop Around the Corner
  • Birthday: June 7 (shared with twin sister, Callie)
  • Born: Arizona
  • Occupation: MES Agent, Magic-Owned Business Liaison Department

In this book: Charlie is less than thrilled to spend a summer surrounded by water; he’s out of his element, literally. But, as long as the ship doesn’t sink, he supposes he can give it a whirl. With the power of fire at his beck and call, he makes a powerful ally for Jen and the others. But, if he loses control, he could sink the very ship they’re trying to save…

Tethys Conall

  • Height: 6’3” and broad
  • Eyes: Dark brown
  • Hair: brown
  • Favorite Food: Meat
  • Favorite Movie: The Shining
  • Birthday: February 10 (shared with four siblings)
  • Born: Ireland
  • Occupation: MES Senior Field Agent

In this book: The only downsides to spending the summer on a ship, as far as TS is concerned, are his seasickness and monthly problem. A potion for the seasickness is easy enough. As for his other issue… well, he’ll just have to spend full moons in his cabin. Of course, it’s also annoying to speak seven languages and find yourself in a country that doesn’t speak any of them. For a Senior Field Agent, thinking on his toes is exactly what TS excels at. Handling a rogue magic on board should be a piece of cake. Of course, he’s also used to having back-up, weapons, and a wider field to work in.

Danio Pelagos

  • Height: 6’ 4” and lithe
  • Eyes: Blue
  • Hair: Blue
  • Favorite Food: His mother’s cooking,  not that he’d admit it
  • Favorite Movie: The cheesier the better
  • Birthday: November 14
  • Born: Off the coast of Greece
  • Occupation: MES Special Agent, Secrecy Breach Cover-Ups

In this book: Prank-loving Dani was, naturally, the mastermind behind pulling some MES strings to get an all expenses paid vacation. The icing on the cake is being on a ship. Had he known the danger lurking, however, he would’ve taken a rain check. Dani’s no stranger to threats on his life, but he prefers to face them without the people he loves along for the ride.

Mariana Bar

  • Height: 5’ 10” or 7’2”
  • Eyes: Blue
  • Hair: Blonde or Green
  • Favorite Food: Fish
  • Favorite Movie: The Little Mermaid
  • Birthday: April 2
  • Born: Maine
  • Occupation: MES Intern

In this book: Mariana is eager to go along on a cruise with her friends, even if her bestie couldn’t make it. She’s ready for sun, sand, and (mostly) the depths of the ocean. There’s plenty of exploring to do with Dani by her side. But take her out of the water, and she’s not nearly experienced enough to take on the creature hunting them. Mariana feels more like a liability than a future MES agent. Nevertheless, she’s ready to do whatever it takes to defend herself and her friends.

SavagePrince availnowbanner

SAVAGE PRICE AUDIO

 

Who knew things could get even darker and dirtier in New Orleans? New York Times bestselling author Meghan March introduces the Savage Prince of the city, the man you never want to meet.

I do what I want and who I want. I don’t follow anyone’s rules—even my own.
I knew I shouldn’t touch her, but it didn’t stop me.
Didn’t stop me the second time either. Only made me want a third.
My lifestyle suits the savage I am, and she doesn’t.
But Temperance Ransom is my newest addiction, and I’m nowhere near ready to quit her yet.
I’ll have her my way, even if it means dragging her into the darkness.
Hopefully it doesn’t kill us both.

Savage Prince is book one of the Savage Trilogy, set in the same world as Ruthless King, however you do not need to read the Mount Trilogy to devour this scandalously hot new story.

REVIEW:

This a special audiobook narrated mostly by Grace Grant as the majority of the book is from Temperance, Mounts women’s efficient assistant.
This all starts when Tempy goes to talk to someone who left details about a whiskey order. Temperance arrives at a building with heavy security. So when she shown to an office. Let’s just say she meets a man in a mask, but a voice so delicious she can’t resist.
And Grace Grant pulls you in to the story, the narration is perfection. This is an action packed audiobook. I have read the book ,so I knew what to expect, but this in another league. When Tempy is the room with her masked man. All I can say is it was so hot steam was pouring for the Audiobook. Let’s just say as we get near end and Saxon is suddenly there and we hear Joe Arden, O’ my God his voice is delicious.
As we come towards the end, and thank goodness IRON PRINCESS, is ready to go. The Iron Princess the next in the series is narrated by both Grace Grant and Joe Arden.

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.

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.

ARC Review: LONG SHOT ( A Hoops Novel #2 ) By KENNEDY RYAN @Kennedyrwrites

 

“Satisfying and soul-gripping!”

— Lucy Score, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

LONG SHOT, a deeply emotional, thought-provoking standalone love story set in the exciting world of professional basketball, from Kennedy Ryan is LIVE!

KRLongShotBookCover5x8_MEDIUM

Synopsis

A FORBIDDEN LOVE SET IN THE EXPLOSIVE WORLD OF THE NBA…

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

You don’t.

My fairy tale is upside down.

A happily never after.

I kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud.

I was a fool, and his love – fool’s gold.

Now there’s a new player in the game, August West.

One of the NBA’s brightest stars.

Fine. Forbidden.

He wants me. I want him.

But my past, my fraudulent prince, won’t let me go.

“A raw, passionate, sexy, emotional rollercoaster.”

— Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

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: Bright Lights Duet from USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise is LIVE!

TLUndertheStarsBookCover5x8_BW_325.jpg

Under the Stars

All around us was darkness and night…

I’m not a hero. I’m a survivor.

I had one way out, and I took it.

Now all I want is peace,

A place to pick up the pieces and start over.

But she wants justice.

Names on a list, faces in the crowd.

I vowed to help her, but it’s taking us back to the demons.

Until he appeared.

I thought he died in the fight.

I was wrong.

He’s here.

Stronger, more powerful… Sexier.

And dangerous.

The boy I loved is now the one man we have to fear most.

 

Under the Stars, the stunning conclusion of the thrilling, white-hot second-chance

When he tried to save me, he had no power.

Now everything has changed, and he’ll never stop until I’m his.

UTS-AN.jpg

REVIEW:

I was waiting with baited breath to find out what happened to Mark. As I was so sad at the end of book one.

This starts 5 years & 7 months after the last one.

We catch up with the girls staying at Freddie’s villa in France, after spending five years tracking sexual predators who were involved in abuse going on back at Pussycat Angels. Mark is now a police detective living Alaska. Mark has spent a long time tracking her down, and he doesn’t want to let Lara out of site now his found her.
Mark is just an all-round great guy. Plus he is just super sexy there isn’t much this guy can’t do. The love he as for Lara is just so strong. Even when he finds out the things that Lara has done he doesn’t care, because she is the love of his life. She can run from him and be stubborn but he will always find her and helps deal with anything that’s going to make their life hard. His career could be on the line with helping them but he doesn’t care he is always a step ahead. He really can’t do anything wrong in my eyes I just love his character.
There is so much going on in this Lara and Mark and sometimes Molly go from New Orleans to Seattle to make certain that it safe to live in the open. I want give anything else away, but a bit of advice read the Novella Sundown which takes place between the two. This is a great duet and you can’t help but to warm to most of the bunch on the good side of course.

ARC REVIEW: WATCHING MINE ( Consumed #3 ) By ALEX GRAYSON

 

Watching Mine by Alex Grayson is NOW LIVE!

Portrait of romantic couple

Blurb:

My name is Nathan Reines… and I’m a voyeur. Yes, I like to watch people have sex. Witnessing the desire on their faces as they writhe in ecstasy makes my blood hotter than the hottest flame. There’s nothing more erotic than seeing their bodies tighten and tremble as they balance on the edge of ecstasy. It makes my dick as hard as fucking steel.

I’ve never been tempted to have a lasting relationship with a woman—why get involved when watching from the sidelines is so fucking hot? But from the first time I watched the woman in the apartment across from mine, I knew she was different. She teases me with her soft touches and gentle caresses. She tempts me with her silent moans and sexy whimpers. She excites me, and makes me want more than I ever have before.

For two years, I refused to give in to my curiosity. That is, until fate took things in her own twisted hands. Now that I know what it’s like to experience Emberleigh in the flesh, there’s no damn way I could ever go back to simply watching.

Although this is book 3 in The Consumed Series, Watching Mine may be read and enjoyed as a STANDALONE.

REVIEW:

Watching mine is book three in the Consumed Series, but this can be read as a standalone. The story of Nathan a member of the sex Addicts group whose kink is voyeurism, and for the last two years has been watching Emberleigh who lives in a building opposite. That all changes when he actually meets her at a club called Blackie’s where practically anything goes. Suddenly seeing her across the club dancing with someone, he realises he wants her for himself not just to watch her with someone else.
For an Erotic Romance Nathan turns out to be a nice bloke, and it’s an instant connection between them. As time passes things change. This is an erotic romance with a few curve balls to try and shatter their connection, Nathan in turns into a loving and kind if a little kinky sexy boyfriend.
In Emberleigh Nathan has found his perfect woman, and with Watching Mine is what it says on packet or book.
An kinky Erotic read with plenty of heart, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

After spending several years as a devoted reader and blogger, Alex decided to write and independently publish her first novel in 2014 (an endeavor that took a little longer than expected). The rest, as they say, is history.
