Fourteen-year-old Breena Taljain’s dreary existence in the slums of Purgaire comes to a sudden end when a chance encounter with a criminal mastermind known as the Patriarch goes horridly wrong.

EXCERPT
As I watched her a voice perked my ears, distracting me. It wasn’t just a voice, though. Someone was singing, and they were doing it beautifully.
I walked over to the panoramic view. I’d heard these words before. After all, I had seen the show, but the actress singing then wasn’t like this. And hearing this voice, I discovered the one I’d first heard didn’t do the song justice.
Taking a seat, I watched the girl. Dressed in a long, pink ball gown, she gazed at the crowd during her song. Even from far away, I could still study every element of her. Sparkling doe eyes, rich caramel skin, and chocolate-colored curls that hinted a hazel coloring with the way the spotlight shined on her. She wore a soft pink flower in her hair. The small touch complemented her well.
The words of her song wisped about the room; her voice like an angel.
“Who’s that girl?” I didn’t really know to whom I asked my question. I didn’t really care. I just wanted an answer.
“That’s what I was trying to tell you, Derrick.” Margot sat next to me. “The lead fell ill, and she got into the show.”
Derrick came up on my other side. Crossing his arms, he nodded his head. “Go ‘cus.”
I glanced up at him. “Your cousin?”
“Yep. Great, isn’t she?”
I gazed back as she ended her song. The audience cheered, then gave her a standing ovation.
“Exquisite,” I said, staring at her as she bowed. “What’s her name?”
“Lacey,” Derrick said.
A small smile formed in the corner of my mouth.

BLOG TOUR: RESIDUE BY LAURY FALTER

click image for full schedule

Synopsis:

When Jocelyn Weatherford is whisked away from a preparatory academy in upstate New York to live with her extended family in New Orleans, she is unprepared to encounter the dangers awaiting her. Yet even as she is thrust into an unfamiliar world of witches and voodoo magic, the greatest threat of all may be the boy she has fallen for.

While handsome and charming, he is also a Caldwell… a member of the family the Weatherford’s have been feuding with for centuries. As their forbidden love grows it becomes the volatile spark that forever changes their world and everyone in it.

My Review of Residue

Jocelyn, a young girl coming of age is suddenly thrust into a world that she doesn’t quite know exists.  She doesn’t know that her family comes from a long line of powerful witches.  After being sent away at a young age to be cared for at a boarding school Jocelyn is your average run of the mill teenager.  She is quite extraordinary despite her beliefs. She is a Weatherford and this makes her anything but ordinary.  

Jameson Caldwell is a high school student as well as a student of mystical things.  He has always stood out among his brothers and sisters.  He doesn’t date girls, even though he is quite striking and it isn’t for a lack of options.  But he is different his future holds secrets that even his isn’t privy too.  Jameson is part of  a family forbidden to have interaction with the Weatherford’s but when a chance encounter with one at a local store sets off a reaction even he cannot deny, despite family lore.

This story is very well written.  I have read a lot of witch books and this has some unique qualities.  I am always thrilled to be immersed into the fantasy world of witches and mystical beings.  One of my all-time favorite books is about a witch, so I have read a lot and I can say that I really enjoyed this read.  I love Jameson and Jocelyn’s story.  Their fated love coupled with the connection and bond that they share is sweet.  

The feud between the families made for some great moments in the book.  The snarky characters in the Caldwell and Weatherford families are very fun and the curses and hex’s they put on each other made me laugh at times.  Throughout the book the unwinding of the truth brings both sides to a new realization, one that is not only forbidden but is dangerous. 

There were a few parts where I saw some things that didn’t add up for me.  But they were very minor.  In whole I really enjoyed the book and getting to know these characters.  I think that readers who like a little magic in their reading will truly enjoy this story line.  The fated lovers, the family quarrel, the history of the families and the secrets to the future and the past are all key parts to this book.  

I give it a solid 4 stars.  There are other books in this series and I think I will be reading them all soon to find out what happens to these characters.

SYNOPSIS: 
For the last four years, good girl Lane has regretted breaking up with Noel Falcon. She thought she was sensible when she told him his dreams of being a rock star would get him nowhere, but now that he’s a rock god and her career is stagnant, she realizes just how wrong she was. When Noel hires the marketing company where Lane is an intern, she’s forced to see him again. If she wants to land her dream job as executive within the company, she has to win him over and secure his account. Too bad Noel is still pissed at her for breaking his heart.

When Lane’s company flies her to a Black Falcon concert to gain Noel’s attention, emotions run high the moment she sees him and realizes she’s far from over him. But Noel’s countless trysts with groupies and his cocky attitude make Lane believe he isn’t the same guy she once loved—now he seems to only want her body. Then after Lane discloses she needs him to procure a job, Noel proves he’s a changed man by forcing her to go on the road with him in order to get it.

After Lane reluctantly takes Noel up on his offer, she becomes willing to do whatever it takes to keep him satisfied, even if it means succumbing to his seductive ways. Lane soon finds deception is a dangerous game and she’s not the only one playing.

Synopsis:
A love triangle gone bad…

He was the one guy I couldn’t get enough of. One look from him would make me melt. He was the one I always wanted to love me, but always seemed so far away. Now he stands before me and he’s turning my world upside down.

At one time I would have done anything to be close to him. But will that anything include betraying the man I pledged myself to and that loves me faithfully?

Samantha Monroe had it all. Or at least everyone thought she did. A career on the rise, a gorgeous husband, great friends and a beautiful home. So why does she feel so alone and empty? When she reconnects with an old flame, lines are tested and compromises made in a quest for happiness.

Jacob Matthews always wondered what happened to Sam Monroe. When fate brings them together after all these years, he can’t help but wonder if it’s meant to be. But when he meets his perfect woman, there is no doubt in his mind she’s his soul mate.

Will the search for happiness cost them everything or will their love square show them what really matters?

Exclusive Excerpt:
**Disclaimer: This content is unedited and subject to change**
I awake and slowly blink the sleep out of my eyes. The sun is fading, casting dark shadows in the room. I turn my head to see I’m alone in the bed. Lying on my stomach, staring non-seeing into the room, I remember how exquisitely fucked I was just a few hours ago.
The feel of his hard body over me and his cock moving in and out of me, the sweat dripping off him as we both came. I feel myself get turned on all over again, and he isn’t even here touching me. Then I remember his muted words spoken right before I fell asleep.
“I want you to know I would have waited another sixteen years to be able to feel that with you again.”
I’m finding it hard to believe that Jacob could rescue me from the prison I’ve put myself in over the years, living the life of someone other than whom I feel I should be. Even if that is my true wish, wishes don’t always come true.
The hotel room door opens and Jacob walks in carrying a couple bottles of water from a vending machine, setting them on a side table. He looks yummy as he walks to the bed with a wide smile on his face. Sitting next to me on the edge of the bed, he bends down and kisses my shoulder and down my naked spine, stopping where the sheet lies just above my ass.
“Hey, sleepyhead.” He murmurs in between those drugging kisses. My legs start to stir beneath the sheet and I’m tempted to take another ride before I have to leave.
“Hi. If you keep doing that, you’re not going to be able to stop me from having my wicked way with you again and I need to leave soon.” I sigh with frustration.
“Maybe that’s exactly what I want.” Running a finger up and down my spine, he stretches out next to me.
“I’m sure it is, but I have stuff to get done before I’m back on the road in a few days. I warned you I didn’t have much time but I would do my best to make this work.”
“It feels like I just got you back, and now you have to go away again. I’d much rather see your beautiful face, instead of dreaming of it. Will you have time to sneak away again before you fly out?”
“I’m not sure. We’ll have to play it by ear. I don’t know how much I have to give you, Jacob. And I’m not just talking about my time either. I’ve been going down this lonely path for a while now and I’m not sure where it’s left me. Regardless of what we did today, I am still a married woman with commitments and responsibilities.” I hate bringing up this fact, but I need the reminder out there that this isn’t a fairytale. Its real life, and its messy.
He leans over and thoroughly kisses me before murmuring, “I know. And I’ll take whatever I can get with you. It’s better than having none of you.”
With that parting blow, he kisses me one last time, grabs his keys and heads out.
“Text me later, baby. I’ll be waiting.”
I sure hope I know what I’m doing, because it feels as though things are going to get extremely complicated.

COVER REVEAL: LET LOVE IN BY MELISSA COLLINS



Release date: May 10th

Synopsis:

What would happen if you lost everything?  If the people who were supposed to love you unconditionally were no longer there for you, how would your world change? 

That’s exactly what happened to Madeleine Becker when her parents died when she was ten years old.  Ripped from her home and everything that she has ever loved, she is forced to start all over again.  The only way for her to move on is to build walls around her heart and keep everyone at a safe distance. Her logic: she can’t get hurt if she doesn’t fall in love.

That theory is blown to pieces when she meets Reid Connely during her freshman year at college. He is gorgeous and darkly mysterious. He understands Maddy’s pain all too well, but sharing his pain would mean breaking down the walls he put up around his own heart. Conflicted between loving Maddy and hiding his dark past, Reid starts to reevaluate his world.  Maddy’s inner strength, snarky personality and breath taking beauty help Reid to make peace with his past.

Together they find out what happens when they let love in.

Snippet of Maddy and Reid’s first encounter:


There was a group playing quarters on the island and another group lining up shots on the breakfast bar – so not my scene.  I just shrugged my shoulders, opened the door, pulled out a bottle of water and, when I turned around to walk back outside, I face-planted into a wall of solid muscle. 

“Hand me one?” His voice was smooth and… gruff at the same time.  Red-faced, I turned back around and got him his water, glad for the cool respite that the opened refrigerator door offered. 

“Here you go.” I could not peel my eyes away from his mouth as he moved the bottle to his lips.  They were perfect – beautiful and full in a completely masculine way.  I watched, completely fascinated, as his throat moved, downing the water in three or four large gulps. He wiped his mouth with his forearm and I couldn’t help but let my eyes travel up the rest of his arm to his biceps and shoulders – those were the same as his lips – perfect.  Amazingly, gorgeously, utterly, divinely perfect.  Muscled and tanned, his arms were mouthwatering.

My knees wobbled.  My heart thudded.  Thousands of butterflies spread their wings in my belly. 

“Thanks…” he stared blankly at my face for a minute and I couldn’t help but wondering if he liked what he saw.  He cleared his throat and roused me from my little daydream where the gorgeous boy is mesmerized by the maybe-a-little-above-average looking girl.  That’s when I realized he was asking for my name.

“Maddy.  Sorry, my name’s Maddy.” I nearly choked on my tongue to get my freaking name out.

Author Bio: 


I’ve always been an avid reader.  Majoring in English Literature was a no brainer.  Becoming a teacher and instilling my love for reading into my students was also a no brainer.  I’ve spent the last ten years teaching and I’ve loved (mostly) every minute of it.  When I was home on maternity leave for my third son, I discovered a new genre that sparked my creativity.  My passion for writing sprang from my love of reading and once I knew I had a story to tell, I couldn’t wait to get it out there.  I only hope that my readers enjoy reading my story as much as I enjoyed writing it.

SPOTLIGHT: RESISTING HER BY KENDALL RYAN

Synopsis: 

 A Sizzling New Romance by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Kendall Ryan


Agent Cole Fletcher lives for his job at the FBI, and he’s more than ready for his next assignment—raiding a cult compound and putting their leader behind bars. But he isn’t prepared for Savannah and her knock you on your ass good looks. At nineteen, she’s too old for foster care and too damaged to live on her own. With nowhere else to go, and against his better judgment Cole takes her in.

But helping her out won’t be easy. He comforts her through screaming nightmares and escaping the lingering fears of her past, but that’s the easy part. Her preference to sleep cuddled up next to his warm body, and her desire to please him in every way makes her harder and harder to resist.



Meet the Characters from Resisting Her

Excerpt:
She trusted him way too much. She needed to go to her room and probably lock the goddamn door, because the way that T-shirt clung to her tits and crept up her side to expose a taunt patch of skin forced his mind to the gutter. He imagined lifting her shirt over her head and nibbling on her soft flesh, exploring her breasts with gentle licks and kisses until she was moaning out his name in that sweet sleep-laced voice.

**New Adult Romance–Book 2 in the Black Falcon series. This book can be read without reading book one.**

My Review of Rock My Bed
It’s taken me a bit of time to come up with the right words for this review.  This book is in a word “AWESOME”!!!! It will forever hold a special place in my heart.  I loved Rock The Heart and was very smitten with Noel.  I knew that I would enjoy this book because I love Michelle’s writing, what I didn’t know before reading this book is that…. I LOVE RIFF!!!!!!  I fell hard and fast for the bad boy of Black Falcon.  

Aburey Jenson is determined to leave the bad boys behind after several broken hearts, and failed relationships. Because of her friendship with Lanie Vance, she knew all about the band and always found Riff attractive.  When she meets Riff backstage after a concert, the sparks fly instantly and  she’s becomes caught up in his web of seduction. Their chemistry is palpable, and she fights like crazy to stay away from him knowing that guys like him don’t do the relationship thing.  Aburey eventually gives into temptation and allows herself a few nights with Riff. What can it hurt since she is determined to settle down with the “right” type of guy.

Riff is the bad boy of Black Falcon, his “golden ticket” leading the ladies to the tour bus night after night, is just the way of life for him. Riff doesn’t do relationships or “LOVE”.  Riff is broken, his past has made him who he is today and it defines what he believes about himself and relationships.  

So what are my thoughts besides the fact that I love Riff….

I loved that Michelle started out the book from the same spot where Rock the Heart started.  This book can be read as a standalone book.  But you should read the other two they are just as awesome!!! The one thing that I really loved seeing was the other side of the conflict between Noel and Riff in this book.  It was interesting hearing it from Riff’s side vs what we saw in the first book. 

When Riff and Aubrey first meet in the book it was like a fireworks display on the 4th of July.  I got really giddy because Aubrey is so sassy and Riff is so sexy and confident the first meeting was an explosion of passion and lust! 

 I have to say that Aubrey is my favorite female from this series.  She is whitty and quick with her banter and she doesn’t let Riff run over her which makes her perfect for him.  He needs a strong woman that can stand up to his crap, and Aburey has the backbone for it.  She truly holds her own which turns him on even more.  I believe he says that the women that play hard to get are his biggest weakness, but I don’t think he ever stood a chance from the moment he laid eyes on her. 

At one point in the book I really wanted to grab them both and knock them over the head.  I would find myself saying “Why do they fight it so much”.  Aburey being torn between the guy that she “thinks” she should be with the guy that she “wants” to be with, made for some SERIOUS angst in this book.  I have to say I HATE ISAAC… And this isn’t because I LOVE Riff it’s because of his attitude.  I wanted to scream at Aubrey for even considering him… He just made me completely crazy from the minute he was introduced.

One character I found really intriguing in this book is Trip.  He was so insightful and funny.  He had some great advice for Riff, and he had some really funny dialogue.  I am really looking forward to seeing more of him in the future... 

So during this book I LAUGHED… a lot… and I CRIED… 4 times… And might have felt like I needed a few cold showers… WARNING: DO NOT READ DURING LUNCH HOUR AT WORK!!!  Yeah I won’t make that mistake again… And I really wanted to HUG RIFF a lot… His story and the self-loathing was so sad at times, his struggles are realistic and will tug at your heart.  I cried, did I mention 4 times… 

This book will make you swoon and completely fall in love with the “badest bad boy” of Black Falcon… Michelle did an amazing job telling this story!  I happily give it 5 stars and hope that you all enjoy this story as much as I do…

BLOG TOUR: LOVE IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES BY AUDREY HARTE

Synopsis:

Annie Chang is in her mid 20s and has lived in Los Angeles all her life. After a series of failed relationships, she’s beginning to feel like she will never meet Mr. Right. But seeing one of her longtime BFFs find love on the internet, she decides to give online dating a try.

After finally finding an amazing guy who sweeps her off her feet, will he prove to be everything she could have wished for and more or is he too good to be true?

My Review of Love In all The Wrong Places

 To say that Annie Chang is unlucky in finding the right guy is a gross understatement.  In fact she seems to attract all the wrong men like a magnet.  After several failed relationships she attempts to seek out companionship on the internet.  She doesn’t really have much luck with this either… There are several attempts with men that fail quite miserably yet again and Annie is left wondering if she will ever find a man who appreciates and loves her and isn’t a complete jerk!  

When she isn’t looking a guy sort of appears out of nowhere… Could he be the one?  Well you‘ll need to read along to find out… 

While reading this book I had to feel really badly for Annie. She really does have some bad relationships.  Just when you think she is getting somewhere there is a slap in the face moment and it all blows up in her face.  This poor girl… I really felt for her because I personally wouldn’t want to be out there in the dating world in this day and age, there are so many creepy people.  I did feel like Annie was trying to be someone she isn’t in order to find a guy.  She’s a beautiful girl and a has a BIG heart.  She just needs to look in the right places, what they are I have no idea but it appears that that internet for her doesn’t work so well… There was a bit of a surprise at the ending and of course I cannot tell you what that is because it would totally ruin the story… But I can say that there is a second book and this kind of left us hanging not knowing what was going to happen with Annie… Did her mystery guy turn into everything she hoped for?  Your guess is as good as mine on that one, because we have to wait till the next book to find out where this story goes…

It was a good read.  It took me a bit to get into the characters but by the end I did really like Annie and truly felt bad for her and her path she had taken and her now confused state over what to do next…  This story is fairly unique.  I haven’t come across anything sisimilar out there which is hard to do.  The market has been saturated with a lot of stories that are similar so when you find a unique one it is truly refreshing!  

 Audrey is a great writer.  The story was very well written and very clean.  A lot of first time novels come out and aren’t always cleanly edited, so BIG KUDOS to Audrey for putting out a great book for her first time…  I‘m interested to see what happens next.  I felt the beginning of the book was a little slow moving, but once it gets going it moved pretty quickly.  It could have used a little more angst and a little more depth to some of the scenes but overall it is a really nice quick read.

I give this one 4 stars and I am excited to read the next book to see where Annie’s search leads her because I need answers…

And now… for a sexy sneak peek at 
THIS IS FOREVER…

 

Seeing Lola after eight months was a fucking kick in the teeth. She had changed her hair, it was purple with black streaks, and she was wearing one fucker of an outfit. Platform Mary Jane’s, her signature, purple torn fishnet thigh highs with garters that ended in bows with skulls on them, micro mini in black satin with a lace trim. She had tripled up on her belts, her little baby tee molding to her torso like a second skin. It was razor cut in places, showing skin and the purple of her lace bra. Her arms warmers were knitted with little skulls on them. He was pretty sure she wasn’t wearing underwear also, the girl just loved to shock. Dare he think it was for his benefit? He wasn’t sure he even saw her, thinking he was dreaming the perfection before him.

But dreams don’t blow you off… at least his didn’t. His dreams, her especially, blew him. When dreams blew you off, those were called nightmares, and those sucked. Sucked like life was sucking right now. She had walked in with the rest of her band, greeted everyone but him, her gaze lingering a little too long on Colin, Rhys’ little brother, but then moved on as she kissed cheeks and hugged people.

 He had to adjust his groin, discreetly of course, when she and Saffron hugged and snuggled. Apparently over the past several months Saffron and Lola had become quite the BFF, with Lola staying at Saffron’s place in New York when she had to go in for several shoots and meetings with her record company. Rhys had teased him about getting face timed and seeing both of them in little booty shorts and white tank tops… but he didn’t think they were thatclose.

And worse, he didn’t think seeing her all snuggly with Saffron would illicit the images rolling through his head. Not that Saffron wasn’t hot, but he just didn’t dig his best friend’s girl like that.  He grabbed a tootsie pop and unwrapped it, sticking the thick ball into his mouth. He watched her move from person to person, but never to him.

What. The. Fuck.

When everyone sat down, she sat at the other end, didn’t even bother to look at him. He went through dinner in a blur, his anger getting to him more and more. What the fuck was going on? He was beginning to feel like he was invisible. Maybe it was a nightmare?

When she got up and went to the bathroom, he followed, after exchanging a meaningful look with Rhys.

“So you’re just not going to say anything to me?” he said as he caught her coming out of the bathroom.

She looked at him and then sighed. “I didn’t want a public thing to happen.”

Public thing?

He cocked his head and scowled. “And what the fuck does that mean?”

She looked him up and down. “I don’t know if I’m ready to say hi like I want to.”

Winter rolled his eyes. “So you can wrap yourself around Saffron, eye Colin up like he’s a steak, which by the way he’s not even eighteen yet, eww,” he ticked off on his fingers, “Yet you can’t even just turn and wave at me?”

Lola shook her head. “It’s not what I wanted. And Colin is going to be very popular…”

“You just didn’t wanna talk to me at all?” he asked, thoroughly confused. She was the one that pushed for the tour, and by all accounts she didn’t have issue with their past. It was what gave him hope.

She moved closer and shook her head. “That’s not it.”

“Then what’s it?” he bit out, his hands clenched at his sides. Gods, only she could infuriate him like this. Fuck she smelled good. All honey and warm clover… no one smelled like Lola.

Her voice lowered. “Do you like my outfit Winter?”

He growled. Fuck yes he liked her outfit. Loved. Wanted it crumpled on the floor of his bedroom. Wanted to peel it from her slowly, kissing every inch of skin he exposed.

She reached for him, her fingers tugging him closer by the belt loops of his jeans. “Good. You’re supposed to. You don’t get anything from me Winter Tulane. No greeting, no, little wave, no explanation. Eat your heart out baby.”

She got closer, her lips just against his, a slight almost imperceptible move of the hoop through the middle of his lip and then she was gone, back towards the party, her ass shaking with a sashay that had blood rushing from every place in his body to his cock. Fuck. What the hell was going on?

“Hey Lo,” he called after her. She gave him the finger and kept walking.

Game on. Game fucking on, he thought as he followed her back into the room. Confusion didn’t even convey how he was feeling about what happened, but holy fuck the signals she was throwing off were so convoluted he didn’t know if he should fist pump for getting her so close to him or brood over her words.
