Footprints Spotlight Banner




Standing by she watches her father leave board the huge grey beast. Taking him to who knows where. As a young girl, her mother raised her whilst her father was away at war. A single mother of sorts.

She saw familiar faces come and go, Flags wave in the breeze, Engines growl as they shut down. Each time the faces grew less and less.

Tragedy struck, leaving Riley and her mother to fend for themselves. Life was not easy. His memory covered the walls. The flag still hangs proud from the stark white walls.

She vowed she would never fall in love with a military man, she purposely steered clear of their nightly haunts. Until one day,

He came crashing into her life literally. Was it love at first sight, can she overcome the fear that comes with living the military life?

“He left me. Over and over again, promising he would come home and I waited. We both did and then one day he didn’t come back, instead they brought him back as he lays today and I cannot put myself through that again. You say it is your last time, but what do you mean it’s your last? How do you know? How could you know? I may be young but I am anything but naïve, I know the life. I’m fully aware of the threats involved with what you do. There will be a day that you are called away from me again, and that may be the last time. Do you understand? Do you really understand that I cannot let someone who I love walk away from me again and never return.”

Torn from You by Nashoda Rose Release Day Event & Giveaway

Torn From You Release Day Banner


Love is like an avalanche. It hits hard, fast and without mercy.

At least it did for me when Sculpt, the lead singer of the rock band Tear Asunder knocked me off my feet. Literally, because he’s also a fighter, illegally of course, and he taught me how to fight. He also taught me how to love and I fell hard for him. I mean the guy could do sweet, when he wasn’t doing bossy, and I like sweet.

Then it all shattered.




I was alone and fighting to survive.

When I heard Sculpt’s voice, I thought he was there to save me. I was wrong.

*Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, strong language and sexual content. Over 18 years.

This is a love story with some dark elements. No cliffhanger and next in the Tear Asunder series is Ream’s story.

Out of Time by Jen McLaughlin Blog Tour & Giveaway




Desperate to keep him…

I’ve finally gotten everything I ever wanted: love, freedom, happiness, and, most importantly, Finn. Our love is everything I expected it to be and more. We’ve finally found each other, but the world seems determined to tear us apart. We thought my father was the only obstacle between us, but now it’s the military. With Finn’s departure looming, we’re squeezing in every moment together before we run out of time.

Trying to make every moment count…

Being Carrie’s bodyguard was one thing. Being her boyfriend is another. Every day she’s mine is a day the sun shines in my life. Yet our time together is running out. Her father will never think a tattooed Marine will be good enough, so I’ll do whatever it takes to be worthy of her love. But the road will take me away from the girl who makes me feel alive–the girl I can’t live without.

Time only gets us so far…


*5 Stars*

*Do not read this review unless you’ve read Out of Line first.*

 I fell in love with Carrie (Ginger) and Finn in Out of Line (book 1). In Out of Line, Finn was sent by Carrie’s father to watch over his daughter while she is in college. The catch was to not be seen (yeah so did not happen!) Finn saw she was different and could not stay away from her.  They ending up falling in love and let me say I fell in love with that Marine!  He loves Ginger beyond anything in the world.

In Out of Time, Finn has to leave for a mission. He is not sure what is going on, but during the time of uncertainties he begins to have insecurities. Carrie’s father still does not know of Finn and Carrie’s relationship. He is in the running for President and Finn is sure he will not approve of their relationship.  Carrie is not like any other rich princess. She loves Finn with every being of her heart. From his tattoos, motorcycle, job, etc. she loves everything about him! There is nothing she would change about Finn.  Finn starts to wonder how Carrie’s family would accept him to stand by their side, if Carrie’s father becomes president.

Let me say I loved Carrie’s no whole barred approach with Finn. She was not afraid to let Finn have it when he pissed her off and she was not afraid to openly express her feelings for him.

I’m going to tell you this once and once only: I will not leave you.  And if you leave, I will always be here waiting for you when you get back.  Whether it’s in a few days, a week, or a freaking year.  I’ll be there.  I’ll be yours.”

Finn is also has the most swoon worthy moments in this book, that had my panties wet.

 “F**k, I love you. So damn much it scares the sh*t out of me.  I’ve never been scared of anything before. Guns, Surfing, War.  But now I have the biggest fear of all – losing you.”

Jen also knows a thing or two about writing good sex. God, the things that Finn does and says! Holy Book Orgasm!!!  I mean just reading his thoughts when he is with Carrie made me hot and bothered (WTH it is a book, right? Well I was there with them!)

This isn’t going to be sweet or soft.  Are you ok with this?”  When I was buried inside her all the way, I tightened my grip on her and pressed her against the door even harder to make sure she had good support.  Then…..I f**cking lost all control.  I pulled out of her and thrust back inside – hard and fast.  And I didn’t stop. (HMMMM yep, you see what I mean?!)

Time was running out for Finn and Carrie, but the one thing that was constant was their love for each other. Finn had to do this mission in order to be “more” for Carrie. Carrie said she was not not going anywhere. She was with Finn for the long haul.

“You don’t look happy, this is good, I know it sucks I won’t be home for Christmas but it’s worth it.  I‘m doing this for us Ginger.”

“I know.  And I love you so freaking much for it.  For making this happen.  I’m just scares.  I can’t….lose you, Finn. I just can’t.”

 I finished this book in 3 hours; I loved every single page of this book.  The connection Finn and Carrie have, the undying love and support for each other and the devotion to each other had me interested from the first page to the last.  I loved how when it was time for Carrie to step up to her parents, she did so without fear. She did it for Finn, the man she loves.  I want to say the when the BIG IT happens, I was an emotional mess and now I have to wait for Book 3 to come out.  Would I change the ending? Not at all! This love story needs a book 3! This shows how intense their love and connection is for one another. This relationship was not instant, it was one that came with time, patience and respect and I for one cannot wait to read their final story.

I received an ARC for an honest review.

Finding My Forever by Heidi McLaughlin Blog Tour


FmF Amazon GR SW

Release date: 12/30/13

Pre-order begins: 12/16/13 – Amazon only


Everywhere I look, my friends are settling down – marriage, children, white picket fences; but not me. Marriage isn’t in the cards for me. I’m a ladies man.

A rock star.

I was born and raised in the industry.

I love everything about my life, especially the attention from the women that my status brings me.

Women find me. I don’t chase. I know what they want and they know I’ll deliver.

But after one look, one touch, one night…

Now I’m the one doing the chasing.

I need to find a way to show her that I’m serious, that I can change.

I need to find a way to show her that I can love her fully, and only her.

I need to find a way to show her that she’s my forever.

*5 Stars*

“Only you get this side of me.  I want to give you a week of pure bliss.  It’s the least I can do seeing as you never look down on me.”

Heidi sucked me in again!  I couldn’t put this book down! 

Jimmy is a rock star who is never going to settle down.  He has grown up in the music industry, and has watched how that industry ruined his parents relationship.  Now he’s watching his band mates and best friends settle down, but still can’t see that working for him………until he meets Jenna.

“She’s beautiful though.  Everything about her shines like a diamond and when she smiles, it makes me go weak in the knees.  I hope that feeling never goes away.”

Jenna is running from her secret past, and has finally settled down in Beaumont. She has made great friends, who happen to be band mates and friends with Jimmy.  Even though Jimmy doesn’t want to get close, he feels the chemistry and can’t stay away from Jenna.  He finds himself flying back to Beaumont often, just to be around her. Jenna is feeling safe in her new life, until her abusive ex-husband finds her.  Her friends, along with Jimmy, are ready to protect her.    Once Jimmy finds out Jenna is hiding another secret, he wants her and a life together.  But Jenna questions every feeling.  How can someone love her?  How can someone like Jimmy want to be with her?  Jenna finally decides to live in the moment for as long as Jimmy will be there. 

“This is the type of passion I want in my life and if it’s short lived then so be it.  I’ll cherish each moment until he takes them away from me.”

But, she can’t help fight her feelings.  She doubts ever thing Jimmy says or does.  She knows he will find someone else or leave at anytime. 

“Jimmy makes love to me on the deck.  This time it’s much different, like he’s trying to show my heart that he’s here and not going anywhere.  I just refuse to believe this will be real once we head back to reality.”

I loved Jimmy and Jenna.  Just when I thought they finally found their happily ever after, Heidi would surprise me again and again.  Like I said in the beginning, I could not put this book down!!  Heidi had me always wondering what would happen next, and who was going to interfere with Jenna and Jimmy this time.  This book is a definite must read, just like the first two in the Beaumont series!

I received an ARC for an honest review.

Book Title: Perfectly Damaged
Cover Designer: Mae I Design and Photography
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Schizoaffective disorder: a mental illness in which a person experiences a combination of mood disorder and schizophrenia symptoms.
I know about this illness—very well—because I suffer from it. It’s been four years since my diagnosis, and ever since, I’ve been living in a dark hole. Voices constantly invading my thoughts. Hallucinations. All of which force me to question if what I’m experiencing is even reality.
But here I am, still hanging on, still breathing and living through it.
That is, until he stumbled into my life. Logan Reed. I don’t want any part of him. I’ve pushed him away, but he isn’t easily deterred. I’ve told him I’m different, but he doesn’t care. He’s trying to slowly break me down. I’m trying just as hard not to let him. He doesn’t know how truly damaged I am; what will happen when he does?
I know the truth—he’ll never be able to look at me the same way again. Just like everybody else.

*5 Amazing Stars*

“You have to let yourself be open to the possibility of true love.”

“I let myself be vulnerable and got my heart broken, but I also fell in love.”

Yep I fell in love too. Tara Brown really did a fantastic job of sucking me in and keeping me so engrossed to the story that I could not put it down until the very end.  This book had everything I could have asked for in a romance story.  Normally I’m not a huge YA fan but OMG, Tara’s words had me forgetting that I was reading YA.  It doesn’t have the steamy sex scenes that I normally gravitate to but what this book did give me was a ton of laughs, a lot of attitude and and a very romantic love affair.

“So… I may or may not have had a MAC lip-gloss in my pocket. but it wasn’t like I was stealing it.”

“I swallowed hard, begging my eyes to water, but those whores weren’t giving me even a single trickle.”

This story starts off where Finley finds herself in a whole lot of trouble. She’s your typical teenager with a lot of attitude and something to say about everything.  Her parents aren’t the greatest so  they end up sending her away to a relatives place where she hopefully gets her act together.  This is where she meets man of her dreams and life as she knows it starts to change little by little.  She is feisty, mouthy and in all honesty she acts like a spoiled brat but you can’t help but like her a lot.  Let me tell you the way this girl talks had me laughing out loud so many times my daughter was asking me what was so funny.

I fell in love with Aiden right from the beginning. This 19 year old kid with the world on his shoulders, so proper, so mature and so damn romantic stole my heart. There wasn’t a single thing I didn’t like about this boy.  Honestly I couldn’t get enough of him.  I loved the banter between Fin and Aiden. They both completely come from two different worlds but honestly that doesn’t stop them from finding a way to be together. The fact that they are such opposites is what makes them so perfect for each other.

Tara’s spin on this modern day fairy tale was so well written.  I felt like I was watching a new better version of the princess dairies.  Every single character that is introduced to us in this story feels like real people.  It’s so sweet, so funny and yes I am repeating myself but it truly is such a beautiful romantic story.. I NEED more of this story.. There isn’t a cliff hanger, you get this amazing epilogue that you want to go on for days. So yep, I need more Fin and Aiden.  I also would love to see this turn into a complete series. I’d love to see the secondary characters get their own story too..

I’m a huge fan of Tara Brown’s work but honest to god,  this one is my new favorite from her.  I love her ability to write all kinds of genres and honestly I think she nailed this. Definitely a must read.  You will not be disappointed by the lack of sex in it.  She gives us so much in this story that steamy sex scenes aren’t needed. You don’t even miss it for a second.

*5 OMG Stars*

“If Snookie got her happily ever after, so can any girl.” #TrueStory

I didn’t know what I was getting when I started this book but the moment I started reading I was cracking up and falling in love.  I think a big part was because I live with a teenage white girl and the words coming from Finley’s mouth I watch and hear daily in my own world. This book is what I would call a modern day fairy tale with a touch too much reality. It is Kate Middleton behind closed doors, you know the version we never truly get to see.

“Well? We know all your dirty little secrets. Now give us the dirty.”

I don’ t know how I want to review this book because it is a book once you start you can’t put down and once you done you are left saying I need to have everyone read this book immediately!!  Actually I think I was messaging people in the middle of reading it to start reading it.  Yeah I did that!!

“White girls can totally keep a secret. It just takes eight of their closest friends to do it.”

Yes this book speaks with a language that is very common in high school walls and in homes all over. I totally say OH MY GOD and that girl is totally Cray, Cray. I also might be addicted to taking selfies of myself thanks to my daughter and the gift of communicating through snapchat and Instagram.

“If a white girl makes a duck dace and doesn’t Instagram it, did it happen?”

With that I guess I need to tell you about the story line and quit talking in a language that only white girls can understand. Tara Brown captured this storyline brilliantly and she wrote a book I could finally share with my daughter and her friends. It has a Princess Dairies feel but revived and written in a way that you can’ t help but fall completely in love all over again.

Finley is a girl who is a teenager who has been cursed with the stepmother from hell and because of that she has a father who is clueless. So after a little trouble Finley is sent away to live with her Aunt for the summer, Hattie. Finley thinks this the worse thing to happen to her just like any teenager but what she doesn’t realize is it’s about to be the beginning of her own fairy tale.

“Oh my God.” He was smug. “I know right?” I scoffed. “Don’t talk to me. I think I might hate you right now.”

Finley reaction is that of any teenager I hate you, you ruin my life but then it happens teenage love.   Finley meets Aiden and we watch as a teenage love story takes off.  The thing with teenage love is when it happens it is so pure and Tara captured how the emotions that they feel so strong.  But this couple was different, this was more romance and we watched as he open her eyes.   Aiden made me swoon and he this prince you want your daughter to find.  Aiden is exactly what you would call the perfect gentlemen with a touch of amazing!!

“Do you admit defeat, then?”

“In what?”

“Your feelings for me? Do you admit you like me as much as I like you?” I grinned. “Never.”

Now, for the best part of all. Tara wrote one of the best endings I have ever experienced. I am not lying I was crying, I was smiling and I had a million butterflies in my stomach. Yes, it was that good. And that left me wanting this book to turn into a series. Yes, do not worry there is no cliffhanger and everything is wrapped up in a pretty bow with all the hearts and flowers to go along. But there are characters in this book that I would love more of, characters that I absolutely fell in love with. Seriously when I finished this book the only thing I was left saying was OH GOD CAN I PLEASE GET MORE NOW!!!

“It truly was a fairy tale ending and I would have the crown to prove it,”

Damn I just want a crown and I think I want a pumpkin spice latte.

I am not going to talk in the third person. It feels weird.
I am a Canadian author of Paranormal Romance, Post Apocalyptic and Fantasy novels. Mostly because I think I have Writers ADD, I like to call it WADD. It might be a real thing.

I write New Adult, my books have sexual content (Heck yes) and Swearing. You have been warned. Now enjoy!

I have a beagle named Buster, a husband who I force to read everything I write and two girls who want so badly to be a character in my books. And not in that order.

I am mid thirties so be prepared for the chick lit novel this year. I am calling it my Ode to my Midlife Crisis.
I have been writing since I was old enough to lie. So for some time.

Welcome to my world. Please enjoy the ride.

Think this is your typical love triangle? Guess again!!!

This book took me by surprise. I was expecting the typical which guy should I pick story line. The usual sweet and innocent herione. Ha!!!! That was not the case. There is not to many books that you hate the heroine and want to crawl into your kindle and throat punch them!! This is one of them!!!!

You have Lila, who finally after being friends with Liam for years has finally figured out he is the guy of her dreams. She is off to college soon after they start to date and he is off to the army and that is when she meets Evan. They have a connection that she can’t ignore. When tragedy strikes she turns to Evan and there friendship turns into more. When her life takes another turn Lila has a life altering decision to make. The plot was unique and full of tragedy and drama. I didn’t expect some of the things the author threw at me which made me read this book in one sitting.

The story was definitely unique and entertaining.  However, there were times when the book felt a little rushed for me.  There were times where I had a  hard time figuring  out who was speaking, but once I got use to the author’s writing style I found it was much easier to follow.

I love music! I have used some of these songs in Embracing Love. I have listened to all of them while writing, some of them over and over. I would open the playlist and get lost in the music while writing. Each song has lyrics that fit with the characters, and their story. There are a couple songs that mean more than others. When I say I had them on repeat, they were on repeat for hours! My husband is thankful for my ear buds.

She is definitely an artist at heart and would love nothing more than to be elbow deep in clay during her waking hours.Rene believes that all fiction is based on some form of reality—otherwise we would never have the inspiration or knowledge to dream up the realistic situations we portray with our words. She is proud to say that her personal experiences have been inspirational, though perhaps not always identical to that of her fictional characters. Where reality and fantasy diverge, however, must remain her little secret…

Secrets that some will kill to protect.

*Jodie’s Review*

I have been a huge fan of Charles since I picked up Just Remember to Breathe.   From that moment on I was attached to The Thompson Family and I couldn’t wait for more.  I am going to stop here and say if you haven’t read them I highly suggest you stop everything and go live in those books for a little bit.  I will also warn now that this series is not complete so yes PREPARE FOR THE CLIFFHANGER!!

Girl of Lies is a little different than the other Thompson Sisters books you see this is not a romance book, this book was full on suspense and action.  It starts right after The Last Hour and this one revolves around  Andrea, the youngest of Thompson Sisters.  She has been raised in Spain with the Grandmother away from her sisters.   But one phone call brings her home and that trip home quickly becomes something no one prepared for.  And with that we find out there are secrets, secrets their father has that people have done everything to cover up.

“Your mission in life is to make sure Richard Thompson’s secrets never come to light, Filner.  At all costs.  This was all supposed to be nice and quiet =, and now it’s now, and its your fault.  I want it fixed.  I want it to go away.  Am I clear?  If this problem doesn’t go away, then you will?”

This book kept me turning the pages and on the edge of my bed.  But what I wasn’t ready for were all the POV’s that were thrown at me.  Seriously that cast of Characters at the beginning, it’s there for a reason and I was so thankful Charles had included it.   This book was like more like watching a suspense thriller then reading a book.  It had so much mystery, suspense, danger and action I almost felt I was reading my husband’s kindle.   Then just when I thought I had figured out everything Charles spun it and changed my opinion.  What I will say is a lot of questions I had prior, this book came in and answered but it also left me with new questions but of course isn’t that what a good cliffhanger does!!

“Why was any of this happening?  None of it made any sense.  Shock upon shock had been piled on her,”

I definitely look forward to seeing where this trilogy is taken and you may think you know the Thompson Family but news flash just like real life there is always more to the story!!!   This book is definitely a journey and it’s one that is only just beginning!!  DAMN IT NOW I WILL WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE!!

“What else is there to know?”  Our parents are liars.”
