瀀瀀 class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”>

Aqua
By- M.A. George
Genre- YA Paranormal
Publication Date- April 16th, 2014 
 
Meet Layla McKelland:  
Novelist (unpublished, but cut her some slack…seventeen is a bit early to despair),
Slightly neurotic introvert (Alright, let’s be honest…there’s no “slightly” about it),
International Woman of Mystery, and…
Okay, just scratch the bio. 
 
The only real “mystery” in Layla’s life is why her father has never been on the scene.  Or why her mother drags Layla to a new coastal home every year.  
 
Nothing about the latest hometown seems too newsworthy…until a routine day at the beach leaves Layla questioning whether she’s read one too many paranormal fantasy novels.  The plot thickens when a random guy claims to know things about her father—a bizarre claim he backs up with an equally impossible stunt.  And Layla soon finds herself on the wrong side of a mysterious attempted drowning…on her own kitchen floor.
 
When all is done, Layla will attest that fact is far stranger than fiction.  And nothing in real life is ever as transparent as it seems…Not even water. 
 
Especially not water.

BLOG TOUR STOP! JUST ONE NIGHT BY LAUREN LAYNE (@TastyBookTours)

Cover(24)

Blurb

New York’s hottest “sexpert” has been living a lie—and it’s up to one man to keep her honest . . . all night long.

Riley McKenna knows sex – good sex, bad sex, kinky sex…Her articles in Stiletto magazine are consistently the publication’s most scandalous—and the most read. But Riley has a secret…all that sexy talk? Not an ounce of it comes from personal experience. Her own bedroom escapades are more limited than even her best friends know. When her editor requests that all columnists write something more personal for Stiletto’s anniversary issue, Riley turns to the one man she’s always been able to count on and calls in the favor of a lifetime.

Sam Compton would do anything for Riley McKenna. Anything except be her experimental sex toy. He refuses her request. At least until she tells him that it’ll either be him or she’ll go to someone else. And that, Sam can’t accept. Reluctantly he agrees to her terms—one night of completely meaningless sex in the name of research. Riley thinks she’s prepared for what awaits her in Sam’s bed.  After ten years of writing about sex, actually doing it shouldn’t be that different, right? So wrong. What starts as “one time only” becomes “just one more time.” And then one more. And before they know it, Riley and Sam learn first-hand that when it comes to love, there’s no such thing as just one night.

 

Review3

Riley McKenna is a journalist for Stiletto Magazine. Her biggest issue is all the sex she writes about is fake. She has not had sex in ten years and no one knows. Now Riley has to write a personal article. Therefore, Riley tries breaking all the years of abstinence with Sam and making that the focus of her article.

Sam Compton is a hot and sexy man who seems to spend more time with Riley’s family than his own. Sam seems to have issue with his self-esteem, which is why after tinkering with his whiskey for years he still has not looked to sell it. Sam is a hardheaded man.

The chemistry between Riley and Sam is blistering. The sex scenes were scorching. These two make a great couple if they stop playing games with each other and keep putting all there cards on the table. It came across as unrealistic.

Just One Night is the third book in the Sex, Love & Stiletto series by Lauren Layne. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. I found this book to be well written. This book was very slow to start but picked up as the book went along. The main and secondary characters were interesting. Overall, this was a great book. I will be keeping my eyes out for future books by Ms. Layne.

Add a crazed fangirl trying to seduce Sebastian, a man who has found that rules just might work for him after all. If it means he keeps Mariss in his life. It seems The Power Couple may never catch a break.

BLOG TOUR STOP! TO BED OR TO WED BY SANDRA SOOKOO

Cover(18)Blurb

When an impromptu kiss captures the imagination, either a spark will ignite or family interference will snuff the match.

Charlotte Darrington adores being adored by the men in her circle. She’s in London at the request of her mother, and though her parent wants her to find an eligible gentleman and start a family, Charlotte delays. In her heart of hearts, she wants a man who can hold his own and won’t be cowed.

Nathan Brigham, Marquess of Ravenhurst, is annoyed with the interfering redhead leading his nephew into the evergreen maze. When he would have delivered a dressing down, she stops his words with a kiss. No matter that he finds her attractive and a welcome distraction from his darkly brooding life, he refuses to succumb to Charlotte’s charms. Above everything, he won’t become the savage man his father was.

Once they return to London from a house party at his country estate, the two can’t avoid each other. Stolen kisses and heated glances in shadowy halls as well as a questionable visit to White’s draw them closer. He can’t forget the demons from his past while her persistence to hear a declaration begs the question: to bed or to wed?


Review2

This was a wonderful read that embraced the historical lover in me brilliantly!


Once I started, I couldn’t put this down! The author has devised an intelligent story line that both infuriates and delights! Charlotte’s open mind and eagerness to grab life by the reins is refreshing. Her love of romantic novels and quest for true love sets her apart from society during the Regency.


Nathan’s wrathful reputation precedes him everywhere he goes, but he abhors his behavior and seeks refuge in the country often. His hermit-like tendencies do little to keep his secrets safe, though. The ruthless gossipers have already claimed him a merciless man with a powerful temper. After meeting Charlotte, however, he comes out of his shell, and tames the beast inside of him just to be close to her. I felt for this man as he fought his insecurities, and a malicious sister whose sole purpose was to gain a title.


The author does an excellent job of portraying this time in history beautifully. The arts, musicales, gambling, and drinking were placed in a believable manner. The characters were cleverly unorthodox, and the villains were made to hate! The hero and heroine are strong, stubborn, and easy to fall in love with. With a wonderful ending, I recommend this novel for anyone that loves historical romance!

BLOG TOUR STOP! UNCOVERING YOU BY SCARLETT EDWARDS (@GHBTours)

Uncovering You
Series- Book # 1
By- Scarlett Edwards
Expected Publication Date- March 27, 2014
Genre- Dark Romance  
 
When I wake up in a dark, unfamiliar room, I have no idea what’s waiting for me in the shadows. My imagination conjures up demons of the worst kind. 
 
Reality is much worse: 
 
A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning. 
 
I am presented with a vile contract and asked to sign. It outlines the terms of my servitude. The only information I have about my captor are the two small letters inked at the bottom:  
 
J.S.  
 
Armed with only my memories, I must do everything I can to avoid becoming ensnared in his twisted mind games. But in the end, it all comes down to one choice:
 
Resist and die.
 
Or submit, and sign my life away

And now an Excerpt from ‘Uncovering You’ 

 
“Lilly.”
 
Oh God. It’s him. There’s no mistaking that rich, masculine treble.
 
What’s he doing down here?
 
“M-Mr. Stonehart,” I stutter, turning. I curse my inability to hide my surprise. He totally caught me off-guard. I have to look up to meet his eyes. Then up some more.
 
The face that I find is so striking it should belong to a Greek god.
 
He’s younger than I expected. Late thirties, maybe early forties.
 
That means he started his company when he was younger than me!
 
Dark scruff lines his angular cheeks. His jet-black hair is styled in long, natural waves. My fingers itch to run through it.
 
Totally inappropriate.
 
He has a prominent nose that might be too big on a less imposing man, but on him, it’s perfect.
In short, he’s a package of the purest masculinity I’ve ever seen.
 
And then there are his eyes. Oh my God. His eyes. They pierce into me like honing missiles. They are the deepest black I have ever seen. They would be frightening if they weren’t so beautiful. When the light reflects a certain way, you catch a glimpse of the purple underneath.
 
They are like midnight sapphires. His eyes reveal a cunning intellect. Those eyes do not miss a thing.
Add all that to his towering height, his wide shoulders, his confident-yet-at-ease posture… and Stonehart cuts an intimidating figure.
 
My gaze darts to his left hand before I can stop it. No ring. He’s unmarried.
 
He looks down at me, expectantly. His eyes narrow ever so slightly, and I feel like I’m being dissected, measured up, and tucked away in some small corner of his brain. I imagine this is what a gemstone feels like under the magnifying class of the most critical appraiser.
 
Stonehart clears his throat. I come to with a start, realizing I haven’t said anything in ages. I open my mouth, but the capacity for speech seems like a foreign concept to my brain. “I—”
 
Somebody bumps into me from behind. I stagger forward. I’m not used to these shoes, so my heel steps the wrong way. My ankle twists under me, and I start to fall.
 
I don’t fall far. The hand still on my elbow tightens, and Stonehart pulls me into him.
 
I plaster myself onto the solid steel wall the man has for a body. I catch a scent of his cologne. It’s a deep, musky smell with a hint of charred spruce that is all male. It scrambles my thoughts even more.
 
“Sorry!” a rushed voice calls out. From the corner of my eye, I see the postman giving a hurried, apologetic wave.
 
Although the sequence lasts less than a second, it feels like an eternity. Pressed up against him like that, I don’t want to move. I know that I couldn’t have made a worse first impression.
 
Stonehart eases me off him with a firm yet gentle grip. Our eyes meet. I flush the most vibrant red. His fingers graze my forehead as he brushes a lock of hair out of my face.
 
Any tenderness I may have imagined vanishes when Stonehart takes out his cell. He long dials a key and growls an order. “Steven. See the delivery boy leaving right now? Have his building pass revoked.”
 
I gape. Stonehart keeps speaking. “Wait. I thought of one better. Bar his company from accessing the building.” There’s a pause. “For how long? Indefinitely. FedEx can talk to me when they have an improved employee selection program in place.”
 
The phone call gives me just enough time to compose myself. My heart’s still beating out of my chest. But nobody has to know that.
 
I speak without thinking. “You’re going to restrict the entire company from serving this building because of that?”
 
Stonehart humors me with an answer. “A company’s employees are its most important asset. Their behavior reflects the organization as a whole. If FedEx decided that clown is good enough for them, it tells me they’re sloppy. I do not do business with sloppy organizations.”
 
“What about the other tenants in the building?” I ask. “Won’t that piss them off?”
 
When I hear myself and realize how improper my question is, my cheeks flame red again.
 
Stonehart’s eyes darken, as if he cannot believe I asked that question. I open my mouth to apologize for my imprudence, hating the way my professional skills have evaporated into thin air. I’m cut off by a short, barked laugh.
 
“Miss Ryder.” He sounds amused. “I believe that is the most direct and honest question anybody has dared ask me in weeks.” He takes my elbow again and leads me to the elevators. I have to take two quick steps to match one of his long strides.
 
“Yes,” he continues. “They will be ‘pissed off.’ But the perk of owning a building—” he hits the elevator call button, “—is that you get to make executive decisions.” He gives me an unreadable glance as the doors open. “That is, at the risk of being questioned by inexperienced interns.”
 
If that isn’t a loaded remark, I don’t know what is. I flush scarlet red for the third time since I’ve met him. I’ve never had a man throw me so off balance.
 
The elevator is packed, for which I’m infinitely thankful. The trip up will give me some time to properly compose myself.
 
Gratitude turns to panic when the crowd files out, meek as mice, when Stonehart steps in. None of the people waiting in the lobby follow us.
 
The doors close. I’m alone in here with him. My heart’s beating as fast as a hummingbird’s wings.
He catches me staring. “Impressed?” he asks.
 
“They know you,” I manage.
 
His dark eyes flash with amusement. “Astute.”
 
About  the Author-
I’m Scarlett Edwards. I wrote my first book as a college sophomore. After six months of edits, it made its debut as Yours to Savor.

 

That was at the start of 2013. I’ve written more books since then. You can find them all here.

 

It’s funny how quickly life changes. I used to think I’d need a degree to get a “Real Job.” Then I wrote a few books, they got somewhat popular, and now I’m living the life as a full-time romance author.


Thanks to all my readers for making my dreams come true!

Love Like the Movies 7Blurb

A contemporary romantic comedy from Simon & Schuster’s Pocket Star by Victoria Van Tiem.

In this irresistible romantic romp, movie fanatic, Kensington Shaw is thrown into love—Hollywood-style–when her gorgeous ex presents a big screen challenge to win back her heart. What girl wouldn’t want to experience the Pretty Woman shopping scene? It’s number two on the list. Or, try the lift from Dirty Dancing? It’s number five. One list, ten romantic movie moments, and a handful of shenanigans later, Kenzi has to wonder…should she marry the man her family loves, or risk everything for a love like the movies?

Review1This book made my got to have list.  I am a HUGE fan of romantic comedies and this book was a fun read.  Kenzi has the luck that I have been running into lately.  When it seems like everyone’s life is aces and you are stuck holding the joker.  Just when she thinks it is her turn in the spotlight and to announce her engagement to the most boring man on the planet, her parade is rained on.

I love the way her ex popped back into her life.  Sometimes what you think is over, is really just an intermission.  Shane is the man she was always meant to be with and the way he wins her back is enough to make you go all girly!  This book has 10 of my all time favorite movies mentioned and a HEA to boot.

BLOG TOUR STOP! THROUGH THE ORACLE’S MIST BY AEDAN BYRNES (@GHBTours)

Through The Oracle’s Mist
Series- Vengelys Series #1
By- Aedan Byrnes
Genre-Historical Paranormal Romance
Published By- Drake Valley Press USA  
 
In the blackest night, with the moon and stars to guide him, she would always be there waiting…
Cyrenna thought she died the day she watched Tynan and his brothers jump through the banishment portal in an act of solidarity with Rigor. Little did she know, it would be the first of many deaths she would experience in her quest to claim his heart. She would surrender not only her immortal soul, but a mortal one repeatedly. Through a deal with the great Oracle, she has multiple mortal lifetimes to change the direction of her future and have a chance with Tynan.
Her journey spans the ages from the GenPei War in Japan and the Silk Road west, to Cromwell, the Three Kingdoms and modern times, bringing her one step closer to forever until she makes a misstep. Then, the burden falls to Tynan. The only thing that is absolute is her fervent hope that he will come, but there’s one big problem.
Through it all, he doesn’t so much as know her name.
 
  
 

 

And here is an excerpt from ‘Through the Oracle’s Mist’

We landed on a hard stretch of land with a thump, a squish, a crack, a growl, and a hard exhale. Most of that I think was Dom who landed first and under the rest of us, but I’m sure we each contributed. He’s not a half bad cushion. True to our training we landed and rolled, jumping up into fighting form immediately. With no one else around, we launched on one another. The snarling and the sounds of punches landing echoed back to us, bouncing off the walls that encircled us that we had yet to notice. We were warriors born, bred and trained. We were also brothers, so the fighting went on until fewer of us could stand than not. Though most of us were down, physically drained from the exchanges, our mouths were still in prime fighting form and the verbal bickering and bashing continued long after the beat downs had stopped.

Ass, true to his nature, started in on Rigor with a relentless verbal assault blaming him for everything and anything that came to mind. Probably, a few that didn’t. Rigor, unlike himself, seemed to take it all and not say much. He was as aware as the rest of us that our current situation was largely his fault. Only when Ass stopped to take a breath did Rigor interject.

“You know, you didn’t have to come.”

“As if I had a fucking choice ya big blow hard. ‘Remember the pact, remember the pact…’ you were like a damn Edrin bird anytime we came to high house. ‘Remember the pact and Kyrna don’t shift.’”

Lone, Dom and I looked at each other. I could tell we were all thinking Ass had done a fair impression, though of Rigor or the Edrin we weren’t going to offer opinion. Deno was notoriously quiet. Killer was too. Looking at him, he was fighting his own battle half in and half out of a shift. Good thing to know that we hadn’t lost that ability on our way here. Where here was remained a mystery.

Only after we had wound out of our want to continue the bashing did the situation really sink in. Sitting amongst my brothers in a place that I had yet to notice, I was overcome with the foreign sense of being lost.

I had seen her. The one match to my immortal soul had been revealed and there was nothing I could do about it. I wonder what she is. She was obviously not like my brothers and I. I wonder if, like me, she saw my other form and knew in that moment she had gained and lost it all by my choice without her getting so much as a vote. Her tear had tracked from luminous, but frightened eyes so wide I think I could have seen the flecks in the amber if I’d had a moment longer to look. Her voice was a symphony in the only word she uttered, ‘No.’

I found myself imagining all that might have been, now that it would never be, and for a moment, second guessing my allegiance to my brothers. If I had known the cost first, would I have jumped? Of course I would have.


About the Author-

There is no simple description for Aedan Byrnes. Obsessive, dreamer, reclusive, compulsive, outdoorsman and wordsmith would be among the list if one were started. The displaced Gael lives in the upper Midwest with family between jaunts wherever the road takes him. A frequent traveler, he is as likely to be found rock climbing or spelunking as sitting fireside dreaming or aimlessly floating away.

A lifelong lover of words and writing, he claims a diverse reading appetite and his writing reflects the myriad influences. A self-proclaimed ‘reader’s writer’, he looks for the emotional and the sensory in word combinations, not just the visceral comprehension of phrases in the stories he crafts and his love of all things literary shines through.

 

 
  

 

BLOG TOUR STOP! DECEITFUL TRUTHS BY MAGGIE THOM

By- Maggie Thom

(Standalone but is a Sequel/Companion Novel to Captured Lies)
 
   
   
 

 

This was fun to choose who the dream cast would be for Deceitful Truths but it was a lot harder than I thought it would be. The people I finally came up with who I think would play the roles really well are:


Tarin Roth - Deceitful Truths is really her story, her journey through something horrible to discover the truth and to save her son.

 

Natalie Portman would be really good for the role of Tarin. Not only is Natalie beautiful and a good actress but she has the look and the qualities that would fit this character. Tarin was raised in a wealthy home by a strict father, so there were high expectations for how she’d show up and how she’d act. She is always dressed in the nicest clothes, perfectly put together she almost seems snobbish, self-centered but there is an inner strength a need to search for who she is and who’s been messing up her life. I think Natalie Portman would do the role justice.


Graham Knight is the other  main character. He finds himself caught in a web of lies and deceit, someone is not only screwing with his company but that of his business partner’s very wealthy grandmother. All his suspicions are pointing him in Tarin’s direction.

 

Ben Foster has the look I want for Graham. Graham is someone who is a bit of a nerd/geek but is also very fit and into being active. Ben did such a great job in the movie Lone Survivor and although this role is very different, I think he’d do it really well.



I wanted to include another character from the story.

Dorothea Lindell owns the family winery and has for about fifty years. She is feisty, takes no crap from anyone and has no problem speaking her mind. The latest incident with someone trying to destroy her winery though is testing her resolve and having her question if her supposed-to-be-dead brother is again trying to ruin her life and that of her family.


Betty White would be perfect for this role.

The Pendulum Files
Black Swamp Mysteries # 5 (Can be read out of order)
By- P.M. Terrell
Genre-  Romantic Suspense
Publication Date- March 17th, 2014 
 
Irishman and CIA operative Dylan Maguire joins psychic spy Vicki Boyd for another harrowing adventure, this time on the high seas. Merchant ships en route from China to the United States are being bombed, plunging America into critical shortages. It’s Dylan’s and Vicki’s jobs to find out who is bombing them and why. Their mission takes them into Black Sites, covert activities and international politics. And while the romantic side of Dylan ramps up his relationship with Vicki, they find themselves in the crosshairs of a hired assassin, which not only places their lives in danger but also that of their unborn child.
 
    
 

 

Character Bio- Vicki Boyd


 
Vicki Boyd had a normal, happy childhood until the day her parents died in an airplane accident—one she saw weeks before it happened. Overnight, she and her three siblings—a younger sister and two younger brothers—were orphaned and placed into foster care. And overnight, she received national attention for her premonitions.
Not just the media and fascinated public were watching. The CIA was watching as well; specifically Sam Mazoli, the supervisor of an office working with psychic spies. For the first time, he had an opportunity to take a child and mold her into a psychic operative. So when Vicki arrived home from school one day, she found a strange man waiting for her; a man who had adopted her but brought her to an imposing, secure facility resembling an institution. During her teen years, she didn’t have school and girlfriends, proms and boyfriends, and her thoughts didn’t range from getting the keys to the car to hanging out at the mall.
Her teens and early twenties were spent learning how to be the best psychic spy the CIA had ever employed. With just a simple latitude and longitude, she could travel in her mind to any location on Earth, providing information to operatives on nuclear facilities, threats to governments, blueprints of enemy weapons—or anything the CIA wanted but couldn’t physically reach.

But when she is sent on a mission deep in the Amazon jungles and it results in the deaths of innocent children, she’s had enough. She quits the CIA and is determined to start life over in a small town helping an elderly lady who advertised for summer help. It’s her first chance on her own, but she isn’t alone for long… Between Irishman Dylan Maguire and the CIA, who refuse to let her go, she’s in for the ride of her life.

*This book is a re-release and revision from the original book. Please be aware that some things have been added, deleted or changed.*

Kay’s journey of a lifetime started in the woods outside of Asheville, North Carolina. It was there that the 17 year old met a beautiful man along with a monster. The chance encounter led her to an unbelievable world that shouldn’t exist; a place where myths and fairy tales were real, and in some cases, deadly. Kay knew she would have to brave this new world if she hoped to find a cure for her terminal cancer.
With a strange yet beautiful cast of characters that she would meet along the way, Kay uncovered truths that would change her life forever. However, before it was all over, it would become clear that Kay wasn’t the only one with problems.
Yet another 17 year old young woman was fighting for her freedom and her life.
Kira had lived in a magical world that Kay had only dreamt of. Despite this, her life had not been filled with many good things. As a matter of fact, she considered her empty, emotional solitude the only positive aspect of her life. She fought daily battles to escape abuse and torture.Trained to be an expert assassin, she was charged with kidnapping Kay and delivering her to Kira’s master, Lord Donovan.
As the two young women set forth in their journeys, their paths would cross in unimaginable ways. The only question that would remain was who would come out alive and whole in the end?

I stood there frozen, knowing that I would probably die because of this wretched creature, when all of a sudden I saw the quick movement of an arm bringing down the point of the knife, slicing towards the large creature’s skull. The animal’s enraged screams ripped through the woods surrounding us.
My brain tried to analyze what was happening before me as I stood still as a statue and watched as the monster started to crumble away like something that had been burnt from the inside out and then fell apart.
This can’t be real.
I looked up from the ashes into the face of an angel.
He’s not an angel; he’s just a guy. Right?
He was staring at me as if he had just seen me sprout a second head. I was staring back at him like he was somehow related to those alien birds outside my window. My mouth flapped open to scream again, but before a sound could escape, the world faded to black, and I fainted.
At least I didn’t scream again.
When I opened my eyes, two ethereal blue eyes were staring back at me. My head was throbbing like a bass drum in a marching band, and it felt like my head might split in two from the pounding headache.
“Are you okay?” he asked me, his voice strong but sweet.
Before I could stop my mouth from saying anything ridiculous, I replied, “Are you an angel? Did I finally die and go to Heaven?”
He bellowed a laugh while I blushed a shade that was more than likely lobster red. I smacked myself in the forehead and tried to hide my face behind my hand. What a brilliant way to make a first impression on an extremely hot guy. That’s when it hit me.
The past few moments of events flooded my brain again and I started to panic.
“Wait a minute! What was that thing and how in the world did it just, just—”
“The dog? I had to cut it with my knife to scare it away. It wasn’t a mortal wound though. He took off through the woods to escape. Sorry if you’re one of those animal lovers, but I was afraid it might kill one of us.”
I shook my head to try to clear it. “No, no, no, no. That was no dog. Well, it was at first, but then it became something else. It was black and huge and had those red eyes…”
Before I finished my sentence, I looked up at him to see complete shock and amazement on his face. I had never seen anyone look so bewildered.
“Don’t look at me like that! I know what I saw! Now what was that thing and what happened to it? It didn’t run off; I saw you kill it. And I would point to the body to prove it, but it, well, it fell apart or something.”
In a split second, the shock had disappeared from his handsome face, replaced by something more masked and calculating. “I’m sorry, but you’re quite mistaken. I didn’t kill it. I only wounded it. And it was a dog. Are you sure you didn’t hit your head or something? I’m afraid you might be having some kind of hallucination.” Somehow, when he said it, it didn’t seem as scary or grotesque as it did when I played what I saw back in my head.

BLOG TOUR STOP! THE RETURN OF BRODY MCBRIDE BY JENNIFER RYAN (@TastyBookTours)

Cover(22)Blurb

The black sheep of Fallbrook is back … and he’s in for the surprise of his life.

Former bad boy, now-decorated Army Ranger Brody McBride is home and on a mission: Find the woman he never should have left behind and right the wrong he did eight years ago.

When the man she loved broke her heart and skipped town, Rain Evans picked up the pieces. But along with heartbreak, Brody left her something infinitely better than she could have imagined: two beautiful daughters. One she gave birth to, and the other she rescued from the woman who helped destroy her relationship with Brody.

Brody is shocked to discover he’s a father, and he’s more determined than ever to win back Rain and protect his girls. Can they rekindle the love they once shared and become the family they were always meant to be? Or will a danger from their past return and ruin everything? 

Review2

The story starts with Brody’s background, and cuts to the chase: He has matured and wants to make up for all of his mistakes, mainly: getting the love of his life back. In his case, what he didn’t know hurts like hell! I felt as if the author was giving me his side of the story first, so I wouldn’t hate him. It worked, but I admit to having a few moments of bemusement due to his behavior. One minute he’s insecure, the next he’s vain and throwing money at the problem. I’m a sucker for a complicated man, though, so this meshed well for me. His PTSD only made my compassion for him stronger.

Rain’s a lady that knows when to put her pride down, and her fists up. She’s been dealing with a lot on her plate, but handles it like a pro. I know this isn’t the ideal situation, but that’s what makes the story interesting. Her composure and beautiful personality were inspiring, but frustrating at the same time. She’s a hard worker, dedicated mother, and loyal to those she loves. My heart broke for this woman and what she had to go through.

Owen and Eli are two of my favorite characters in this novel, as they were the rocks that helped Rain while Brody was away. They provided dialogue that brought some laughter, when needed, as well. There’s a lot of “small town” issues that are thrown in here and there, which made these two diamonds in the rough stand out for me.

I love for my heroes to have a little scruff around the edges, and this author delivered just that! I have to admit, though, the heroine in this novel was my biggest hero. It took a while for me to warm back up to Brody after hearing his confessions, but eventually, I made it there. There’s a great deal of background given throughout the novel that gives you a better understanding of the love Rain and Brody had before he left. The villain is someone I loved to hate, and not far-fetched from reality. With a wonderful plot, story line, and unusual cast of characters, I liked it and look forward to see what’s next for the McBride’s!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Review1Straight up, Rain is a better woman than me because I definitely would have moved on in the interim of  this story.  Brody was a dog.  I get that “technically” he wasn’t cheating but still.  Anyway.  I did enjoy this story.  I like Jennifer Ryan and I know that she tells a great story.  Rain is a good woman for raising both the girls but I feel like she could have played a little harder to get.  This is a good contemporary romance that makes you wonder if you would have done the same things or if you would have moved passed the love you felt and found romance else where.

Caspian Wine Series # 1
By Maggie Thom
Re-Publication Date- March 19th, 2014  
 
She was kidnapped not once but twice and now someone wants her dead because of it….
Her life was a lie!
Bailey knew her upbringing wasn’t normal but she’s worked hard to stabilize her life. At 29, she finally has a good business, a stable home; her life is miles from that of her childhood. Then suddenly her mother dies, leaving a gaping hole and a discovery that they may not even be related. If Guy, the private investigator is to be believed, her life is a lie. Using the skills she learned on the streets, Bailey travels back through a sketchy and dangerous past, to find answers. Dodging bullets, staying ahead of those who want her dead and convincing Guy she can do it alone, are making it difficult to discover not only the secrets of her mother’s past but that of a family claiming she is theirs. 
 
Everyone seems to have a story… but who’s telling the truth? And who wants her dead? Is Guy part of the solution? Or part of the problem? To discover the facts, she’ll have to untangle a web of deceit, lies, and secrets, dating back over thirty years.

BLOG TOUR STOP! TURN UP THE HEAT BY KIMBERLY KINCAID (@TastyBookTours)

Cover(21)Blurb

 

“It’s not you.”

There are only so many times a girl can hear those words before she believes that it is, in fact, very much her. Unexpectedly jilted by her locally famous boyfriend and haunted by a boss who makes Attila the Hun look like a lap dog, Bellamy Blake does what any self-respecting girl in her shoes would do. She rounds up her two best girlfriends and makes plans to get the hell out of Dodge.

But Bellamy’s escape plan takes a nose dive on the side of rural route 164 when her transmission self-destructs, leaving her in the middle of a cell phone dead zone with nothing but her wits. Oh, and Shane Griffin, the hottest mechanic who’s ever checked under her hood.

Yet this small-town man isn’t all he seems. Can Shane and Bellamy prove that sometimes the most unlikely ingredients make the most deliciously sexy mix?

Review3 

Turn Up the Heat is the first book in the Pine Mountain series by Kimberly Kincaid.  Bellamy and her famous boyfriend break up and her boss is a nightmare so she goes on a weekend getaway with two of her friends.  However, Bellamy’s luck goes from bad to worse and her transmission breaks on the way.  So that leaves Bellamy is the middle of nowhere with the hottest mechanic on the planet.  Bellamy is a nice woman who has no idea what she is going to do with her life but her current job is not for her. 

Shane Griffin is a hot and sexy man who has not faced his past.  He works as a mechanic and is very good at his job as well as honest.  Shane has issues in his past that he does not want to talk about as well.  Shane tries to keep his past the past and not discuss it unless he is forced to.  It’s apparent that Shane is not looking for a relationship or even a one night stand. 

The chemistry between Shane and Bellamy is scorching but I found any relationship between them a bit unrealistic because neither person wanted one or even work for one. The sex scenes were steamy.  They made a great match in the bedroom. 

The story was very well written.  The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic.  Overall, this was a great book.  I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

REVIEW BY VICTORIA! A GIRL BY ANY OTHER NAME BY MK SCHILLER

BlurbEveryone tells him he needs to move on, but how can a man function without his heart?

Ten-year-old Caleb Tanner wants nothing to do with Sylvie Cranston, the annoying weird girl who moves next door to him and gets him in trouble for swearing. But at twelve, they become friends when he teaches her how to hook a fishing line and she shows him the value of a selfless act. At fourteen, he falls in love with her.
At sixteen, she dies.

Or so he’s told. But Cal never believes it. Sylvie has become part of his soul. He knows her like the steady beating of his own heart. He’d know if she was dead. Cal looks for her, prays for her and finally he just waits for her.

Nine years later, she walks into the community college English class Cal is teaching. Only this girl claims her name is Sophie Becker and she doesn’t know him. Cal knows better. He’s determined to get the girl he loves back—and protect her from the danger that took her away all those years ago.

Review3

Caleb is a teacher at the local community college working his way up to becoming a professor.  He has hunted for the woman who everyone told him was dead.  Caleb does not believe it because his heart says she is still alive.  It seems he tried to have relationships but no one has ever been able to measure up to Sylvie. 

Sylvie was taken from Caleb at the age of sixteen and was still in love with him years later to the point of following him from afar.  Finally, fears later she takes on of Calab’s classes just to see him then everything comes to a head as he see her. 

The chemistry between Caleb and Sylvie is blistering.  They have a hard time staying away from each other.  It shows how much they care about each other.  The sex scenes were scorching.  The ending is what blew me away.  I did not see it coming at all. 

I liked this book a lot but what I found confusing was for the first third of the book (less once you’re past that point) or so it went back and forth between the past and the present.  That is one of my biggest pet peeves because I find very distracting.  The main and secondary characters were fascinating and genuine. I loved that this book was told from Caleb’s point of view.  Overall, I adored this book and wish I can find man who loves me just like Caleb loves Sylvie. 

COVER REVEAL! UPRISING BY ALLANA KEPHART AND MELISSA SIMMONS

Uprising
The Dolan Prophecies Series Book #1
By- Allana Kephart & Melissa Simmons
Expected Publication Date- April 18th, 2014
Genre- New Adult Dystopian
 
The year 2102–the world as it was no longer exists. Ravaged by nuclear war and polluted almost to the point of no return, Earth was dying. When the faeries came and brought their healing magic, humanity was grateful at first. Centuries of damage repaired in just five years, and during the course of that rehabilitation, they invaded. Quietly overthrown, the human race is now enslaved. The majority doesn’t even realize they have no free will. Branded, herded and kept only to further the agendas of the Fae Courts, humanity could be facing extinction.
 
But a resistance is coming…
Fianna Dolan has spent her entire young life preparing herself for an uprising against the Fae. One scorching summer night Fi’s parents leave and never return. Thrust into a position of power she never expected, Fi struggles with her new position and the responsibility it entails. When a secretive fae man known only as Flint breaches the city’s defenses claiming he can help, Fi begins to doubt everything she’s ever considered truth. As betrayals and deception come to light, will Fi want the answers she’s been seeking, or will trusting Flint lead to her destruction?

Crystal and Melissa often live half their lives with their heads in the clouds dreaming of alpha military hunks, werewolves and kick ass heroines crazy enough to chase after creatures that they unquestionably should know better than to chase.

They are now working on their next two novels, Walk On The Striped Side and Secret Maneuvers. With these projects underway, they are looking forward to showing the rest of the world their crazy stories, heroes and heroines that often plague their minds until written, and hope you will join them on their journey!
