I’m not a philosophical kind of bloke, but I know something about luck. A childhood on the wrong side of advantage will teach you that. It’s all a matter of chance.

Author Photo ~ Mary Whitney

 

Mary Whitney blames Laura Ingalls Wilder and Margaret Mitchell for her obsession with romance novels. At an early age, Mary fell in love with the Little House series and its dreamy hero, Almanzo Wilder, who only wanted Laura to be Laura. Like many women, Mary later graduated to the ultimate, tall and dark bad boy, Rhett Butler, who loved Scarlett despite her flaws.

Mary has lived around the U.S., and after a first career in the non-profit world and politics, she’s settled in Northern California with her husband and daughters. She spends her days writing characters she hopes somehow capture the romance of Rhett and Scarlett and Almanzo and Laura. She’s a firm believer in what Rhett says to Scarlett: “You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how.

Holding You & Releasing Me by Jewel E. Ann ( Tara’s Reviews )

16d686c98a75212071e837b7b08bc380

 

Synopsis

 

Deep breath … I am peaceful, I am strong.

Free-spirited Addy Brecken is Milwaukee’s most talented vegan chef and co-owner of Sage Leaf Café. She has a genius IQ, a padded savings account, an amazing view of Lake Michigan, and a heart that won’t stop beating.

Deep breath … I am peaceful, I am strong.

An early April morning finds her drowning in the seductive fragrance of lilacs and the warmth of the morning sun when she’s nearly hit by a car in front of her café. The peaceful existence she’s desperately tried to maintain after the horrific loss of her family is suddenly shaken by the Range Rover driving, arrogant, sex-on-legs Quinn Cohen.

Deep breath … I am peaceful, I am strong.

A successful, Latino businessman from New York, Quinn has a taste for the finer things in life. A typical playboy, he has the money, the houses, the cars, and the women. Quinn is everything Addy avoids. Where she lives simply and prefers to help the less fortunate, he has no problem spending an obscene amount of money on a briefcase. Their opposite personalities lend to several heated encounters, and Addy finds herself propositioning Quinn for the one thing she never imagined needing … sex.

Offering only her body, Addy tries to keep Quinn at a safe distance from her heart and a world away from her past. Their passion-filled connection makes Addy feel something unfamiliar, alive. But with passion comes more feelings: anger, jealousy, love. When Addy surrenders to the unimaginable and lets go of her past, she’s faced with the impossible … holding on to her future.

Deep breath … I am peaceful, I am strong.

Synopsis

 

A tragic accident. A hidden past. An unbreakable love.

Never goodbye …

I thought Addy stole my soul.

Her beauty blinded me.
Her heart called to me.
Her touch healed me.

She gave everything and asked for nothing. Then I broke her. The depths of her pain were veiled by the reflection of my own. I didn’t deserve her, but I wanted her––I needed her. In my darkest hell, I heard her voice. That’s when I knew …

Addy was my soul.

Deep breath … I am peaceful, I am strong.

Quinn was worth the risk.

He took away the numbness and gave me unfathomable pleasure. Every emotion felt magnified, every moment felt like the last.

My heart found purpose.
My body came to life.
My soul returned.

His weakness gave me strength, and his past held my future. He saved me by … releasing me.

Tara's review

 

Holding You

5 stars

Addy Brecken has built a wall of bricks around her. After suffering the loss of 3 people very close to her, Addy has a hard time letting people in. When Quinn Cohen slams on the breaks and into her life,  Addy’s wall is starting to crumble brick by brick.

Quinn is the epitome of an Alpha man whore. A different girl in his bed every night of the week is nothing new to Quinn, that is, until he almost runs Addy over on the streets of Milwaukee.

When the two start a torrid affair, both do their best to keep emotions at bay, and make it all about the sex. Who will cave first?

“My heart beats with yours, for you, because of you.” le sigh

 

 

Let me start this review by saying, this book does end in a major cliffhanger, and you will need to read the continuation in Releasing Me to complete the entire story.

 

 

 

I tend to find myself reviewing books for debut authors, and I have been lucky enough to come across some really amazing authors this way. This is Jewel’s debut novel, and she will far from disappoint you. The characters were very well developed, right on down to the secondary characters. The plot line of the book was very original, and extremely entertaining. You will be run through the gamut of emotions. The highs are high, and the lows are low. There is some pretty amazingly hot sex scenes that will leave a little tingle in your pringle =).

 

“He buried his face between my legs and made haste with his ‘oral exam’.”

 

I found myself reading a little slower then normal, not wanting to miss a beat. The mysteries of Addy’s past will keep you guessing throughout the entire book, and the answers will come in the continuation to most of your questions. If you are looking for an all around well rounded love story, filled with angst, tenderness, amazing sex scenes, that will keep you wanting more, then these two books are for you. Do yourself a favor and just buy both at once, you are going to want to jump right into Releasing Me, as soon as you finish this one.

Releasing Me

 5 stars

 

If you haven’t read Holding You yet, then you will need to read it before proceeding with Releasing Me.

In the continuation of Holding You, you pick up where their crazy turbulent love story left off. The details of each of their pasts are revealed, the crazy connects will have you gasping for air. The undying love these two have for each other will tear at your heart strings.

While not always perfect both Addy and Quinn are doing their best to make the most of every situation they find themselves in. They each cause unimaginable grief to the other. These two love hard, and make it hard to love each other.

“She was broken when I met her, and i should have been her rock of support, but instead I was the rock that continued to crush her over and over again.”

~~~~~~~~~~

As I stated in my review of Holding You, I seem to always have luck when it comes to new Indie Authors. While choosing books to review, I find myself selecting authors who are new to the “scene”, and very seldom do I find myself disappointed.

There was nothing about either of these beautifully written stories that I would have changed. The entire time I found myself living the highs and lows of their relationship. I imagined living their life and completely saw how the crazy events that occurred could have taken place. They both were full of everything I want in a love story, angst, lust, hot sex, quick wit, sarcasm, and one hell of a storyline.

I would highly recommend you picking up both of these books, take them on vacation, or binge read them on a long weekend. They are fantastic and you will not want to put them down. Believe me, I spent many nights reading until 4 or 5 am because I just could not stop.

Unbeloved by Madeline Sheenan Promo

10155745_10203593270534026_9205613728754681377_n

Warning: This is not a conventional or predictable love story. It involves one woman and two men bound by a love so destructive it spans two decades, pitting brother against brother, and shattering the lives of those touched by it.

Dorothy Kelley is a born romantic, searching for her prince. Instead she finds herself pregnant at fifteen, and a in a loveless marriage by the tender age of eighteen.

Then hope comes riding into her life on a motorcycle and within weeks, Jason “Jase” Brady, a member of the Hell’s Horsemen motorcycle club, sweeps Dorothy off her feet.

But nothing is ever simple for Dorothy. Jase is married with children. And as Dorothy patiently waits for Jase to give her the happily-ever-after she’s been dreaming about, James “Hawk” Young, a member of the Hell’s Horsemen with secrets of his own, sees an opening into Dorothy’s life and takes it.

Carrying on two secret affairs is no easy feat. As Dorothy tries to dig herself out of the mess she’s created, covering one mistake with another, tragedy strikes, nearly costing Dorothy her life and that of her unborn son.

What follows is a long and painful journey of self-discovery and forgiveness, as Dorothy comes to realize that home was exactly where she’d left it, and the love she’d forever craved had always been within her reach.

This is the story of Dorothy, Jase, and Hawk.

We are all born pure; it is our journey that burdens us and leads us astray. Our mistakes that beat us down and cover us in guilt and shame, burying us a little more with each passing hardship. It is up to us to dig ourselves out, to come to terms with our faults, to embrace not only our imperfections but those of the ones we love, and to once again find the path we strayed from.

Love, Lex by Avery Aster (Debbie’s Review)

20567976

 

 

Synopsis

 

This summer, I’d planned to celebrate my eighteenth birthday in Europe with my fellow Manhattanites—Taddy Brill, Blake Morgan, and Vive Farnworth—until I caught my boyfriend screwing my mother. According to the police report, this vomit-inducing incident happened around the same time I’d supposedly blown-up my mother’s penthouse. Like I’m walking around Soho with a stick of dynamite in my Louis Vuitton purse—not! Now, my besties and I are in jail.

Officer Ford Gotti, the Harley-wheelin’ biker cop who arrested us, keeps sticking his perfectly-sculpted nose into my case. His inked body is jacked like a superhero, and he says I can trust him. He wants me to fess up. I won’t. Not again. Why should I? My friends and I had a previous stint in juvie that nearly destroyed us. I gotta protect them and keep my mouth shut. Right? —Lex Easton, women’s studies major, motorcycle enthusiast, and virgin.

The Undergrad Years is a New Adult contemporary miniseries about first loves, independence, and everlasting friendships.

Reader warning: Contains mature content intended for readers 17 and up.

Debbie's review

 2.5 stars

 

Lex Easton is about to celebrate her 18th birthday in Paris with her two best friends and going to give up her V card to her boyfriend Kelle. Lex’s father is a famous Rock star and mother is a celebrity with a drug and alcohol problem. The family dynamics is a little crazy. Lex calls her mom Birdie and she can’t remember the last time she saw her father. The day before her birthday, Lex goes home to find her mom sleeping with her boyfriend. That is when all hell brakes loose and Lex finds herself in jail and her summer plans not going the way she had planned.

 

   “Daddy is in Tokyo. Jack Daniels has been mom’s only source of nutrition since I’ve moved in. And Kelle came over today and celebrated with her.”

 

   “Birdie and her full-on, balls-to-the wall sex with my high school sweet-heart. I had loved Kelle Sterling Dolley. Or at least, I thought I had.”

 

The book deals with family and friendship issues. I found myself not connecting with the characters. I feel like they could have been developed more and some of the terms that were used reminded me of what a middle school girl would say rather than an almost 18 year old that went to a private school. The problems that they faced were a little over the top and dramatic for me, but the friendship that Lex and her BFF, VBF and GBF was realistic. If you are looking for a quick read with lots of cute one-liners this is the book for you.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

Being Sawyer Knight by Nicola Haken Blog Tour & Giveaway

Being Sawyer Knight Blog Tour Banner

 

 

Synopsis

 

As lead singer and guitarist of the internationally renowned Souls of the Knight, Sawyer Knight is living a life most men can only dream of. He’s surrounded by music, fame, wealth, women throwing themselves at his feet. He has everything…

Yet he has nothing.

Life as one of the world’s most sought after rock stars is tiring, oppressive and lonely. He spends every day being who the world wants him to be, who his manager tells him to be, who his mother expects him to be… all the while fighting against who he really is. Truth is, he’s used to it. He’s actually gotten pretty good at pretending… at living the lie.

Until Jake Reed, his ex-best friend and the only person who’s ever made him ‘feel’, waltzes back into his life as the band’s new head of security. Jake wants Sawyer – always has, always will. Now, he just needs to get Sawyer to admit that he feels the same…

“You will be mine, Sawyer Knight. The faster you try to run the quicker you’ll fall to your knees. Then, Sawyer… then you’ll be too weak to resist.”

Sawyer headboard teaser.jpg

excerpt

Unable to hold back any longer, I started undoing the knot in his robe, teasing it open with deft fingers and pushing the towelling fabric open so it draped behind him on the bed.

“So fucking perfect,” I moaned into his mouth, trailing my fingertips along the hard ridges of muscle cocooning his chest, tracing the outlines of what can only be described as exquisite pieces of artwork decorating his skin. Slowly, I worked my way down to his semi-erect cock, curling my fingers around it and smiling as it hardened instantly at my touch.

“No,” Sawyer interjected, grabbing my hand and pulling it up to his chest. “I…I want to touch you this time.”

Sighing in anticipation, I opened my robe and shuffled out of it, tossing it to the floor behind me. Sawyer did the same before bringing his naked body close to mine, pressing our chests together. Placing his hands on my torso, he closed his eyes and let out a heavy, almost pained sigh.

“What’s wrong?” I asked gently, wrapping my hand around his and encouraging him to smooth it across my chest.

“I, um, well I’ve never… touched a man this way before,” he admitted, his eyes sweeping the mattress in embarrassment.

“You’ve never experimented before?”

“There were a couple of guys in college,” he confessed, shrugging. “But… they touched me – never the other way round. To touch them would’ve felt too…” he trailed off, unable to find the word.

Gay?

“Something like that.”

“Are you saying no one has ever been here?” I asked, sneaking my hand between his pressed together thighs, encouraging him to part them before circling his puckered rim with the tip of my finger. He shook his head, refusing eye-contact with me. I grinned devilishly at him, and then buried my face in his neck. “I will be going there, baby. Not yet. Not tonight. But soon.”

Jen's review

3.5 stars

I was so excited when I finally got my hands on this, I had to jump right in. The prologue had me consumed and wanting to see this story through. The premise of 2 boys being best friends turned lovers is always a winner for me and throw in the fact that one of them is a rock star well that equals win win right? Because who doesn’t love a rock star? As I continued on there were a few things that didn’t work for me. On one hand I was completely invested but I found myself rolling my eyes, or even not liking MC at times. There were times where he just completely drove me nuts. This guy is so far in the closet and so deep in denial about who he really is. And honestly I hate that he felt like he had to live like that. But, let me be honest here, because he is living a lie, Sawyer has become quite a bit of an ass.

 

Sawyer and Jake were tied at the hip when they were teenagers. Jake ends up having to move away when they are 17 years old but before he leaves he tells Sawyer how he really feels about him. He loves him and has since the day they met. Sawyer is taken back when Jake kisses him but his disgust doesn’t come from the kiss but how his body reacts to it. He liked the kiss but when guilt and shame settle in that’s when he pushes Jake away and decides they are no longer friends.

 

10 years later, Sawyer is extremely confused when Jake comes back into his life. He fights what his body craves with what his mind thinks. He’s afraid of what will happen if he admits he’s gay. He’s doesn’t believe he’s gay even though his body betrays him every time Jake is near him. He even experimented back in college to convince himself that he was straight. Deciding that nothing a man did to him a woman couldn’t do for him. His struggle with sexuality is heightened. He’s afraid of what people will say, afraid his mother will disown him, lose everything he’s worked for if he goes down that road with Jake. Jake on the other hand is determined to bring out the real Sawyer. He won’t give up until he has the man he’s loved for over 10 years.

 

“Sawyer is hiding from the world. He’s hiding from himself. And I’m going to find him.”

 

“I’m back here because I was fucking miserable trying to live without you, and I owed it to both of us to return to you and try. If you knocked me back, at least I’d done all I could and I wouldn’t spend my life with regrets.”

 

“I will show him that love, no matter what gender they may be, and I will prove to him that he deserves to love and be loved”

 

Ok so when these two get together things really heat up. I have to give Nicola credit where credit is due. She definitely can write some smoking hot sex scenes. Panty melting HOT. I loved how sensual and romantic their love life became. I really loved them as a couple. I loved how Jake was determined to get Sawyer to admit how he really felt. Admit what Jake has always believed since that day he kissed him when they were boys. I love how Jake had Sawyers back no matter what. He was so patient and so loving towards Sawyer. Even when at times Sawyer was all about Sawyer.

 

There were a few things that bothered me while I was reading. Even though I loved them together, I found their relationship progressed too quickly. If it weren’t for the prologue it would have been to insta love for me. Even with all the guilt and shame Sawyer had going on it didn’t take him long to jump in bed with Jake. I really loved them together but I wish there would have been a courting period if you will. I would have loved to see more buildup to their reconciliation from old friends to lovers. A side from a few secondary characters I didn’t really feel a huge connection to the rest of the members of the band. The bond and closeness band members normally have was lost on me. I just didn’t get it. At least not until the end.

 

However with all that said, I have to say I really enjoyed the story. I really want to read more in this series because Nicola does write some amazing sex scenes but I’d like to get to know the band members a lot more. I think I’d understand their dynamics more reading their stories. If you are looking for a steamy love affair with some bumps in the road and a  little twist of suspense then this is one will be up right up your alley.

He grabs me and leads me on stage. We pass a few people, but nobody stops us. He must be using his magic to keep us hidden. He takes me center stage and turns me to face the crowd. He pulls me up against his chest. “Let’s put on a show for them.”

“Oh, I like where this is going. Nobody will see us, right?”

“Not unless you want them to.” He slips his hand down the front of my pants and brushes my sensitive parts. I moan. “Shh, baby. My magic only keeps us unseen, not unheard.”

He pulls his hand out and I hear him suck his finger. Great. How am I supposed to keep quiet? Well, two can play this game. I turn and drop to my knees, quickly unbuttoning his jeans. I pull them down to his ankles. Commando seems to be the way he goes. I grab his stiff length in my hand and bring it to my mouth. I lick the head and he gasps. Now who has to keep quiet? I slowly take him as far as I can. He is so big that I can’t take all of him so I place my hand around the part of his shaft where my mouth can’t reach. I begin to suck and pump with my hand at the same time, twirling my tongue around as I go up and down. He twists his hand in my hair and sets the pace. I use my other hand to play with his balls. It doesn’t take long for his muscles to tighten. His hand twists tighter in my hair so I speed up, knowing it won’t be long. He explodes in my mouth and I swallow all he has to give. I grin up at him and see that he has a smirk on his face and his eyes are twinkling.

           He pushes me toward one of the speaker boxes at the front of the stage and tells me to place my hands on it. I do as I’m told. He slips my pants off and bends down, licking and nibbling on my nub. I have to bite down on my lip so I don’t scream out. He vigorously sucks and licks until I can’t take it anymore. I orgasm and almost collapse. He stands up and holds me around the waist from behind. Then he places his hands on my hips and rams into me. Still sensitive from the orgasm, I moan. The crew working on cleaning up looks around, but they can’t see us. Shit… I have got to be quiet. He fucks me hard and fast. It only takes a few minutes for us both to climax.

Josie's review
4.5 stars

As soon as I started this book I could not put it down. The prologue grabbed me and it took off from there. I am a paranormal romance buff but add an Alpha Immortal male with a dirty mouth – I AM A GONER!!! Tiffany Powers delivered a book that will have readers on an emotional roller coaster ride.  Ok so we have not 1 but 2 Alpha immortal males, 3 immortal funny as hell females and some really-really hot sex scenes; oh but wait we also get 1 slurry troll mole too.

Gabby and Lee had a relationship and were living together. Things are going ok until one dreadful night; Lee becomes someone she never knew. This particular scene was hard to read, I cried and screamed – I felt everything Gabby went through that night. Gabby escapes certain death, but still lives with the nightmares and emotional scars from that night. Her friends have convinced her to go out and try to leave the past behind. There is danger at the club, and Gabby goes outside to the alley to avoid a guy (She thinks is a guy – because HELLO PARANORMAL BOOK HERE), that is where Neeko comes in (HOLY HOTNESS).

 

Neeko is an immortal, he has seen and felt something powerful for Gabby from the first time he laid eyes on her. Neeko finds out that Gabby is his mate; although human she is his mate. Neeko and his men lost Gabby once before and he will not let that happen again. When Neeko senses Gabby is in danger he does the only thing he could to save her. He kidnaps Gabby; not only kidnaps her but he flashes her back to their universe.

 

Gabby feels safe, needy and a strong desire to be with Neeko but she does not understand why. She cannot fight the attraction and sexual desires she feels for Neeko but after her violent experience with Lee she is scared to trust. There is something different about Gabby,her destiny was already set in motion at birth. She is different and special, but when she is with Neeko, everything feels right. When the truth comes out Gabby’s life will change forever.

 

“I will do anything to take your pain away if I you’ll give me a chance. Please, just let me try.”

“I can’t promise you that, but I will try to let you. I may be in too many pieces to be fixed.”

“You may have only known me for a little while, but I have known you a lifetime. You have the other half of my soul. My half recognized you instantly. Yours is just taking its time.”

“You may believe that, but I don’t believe in soulmates.”

 

Neeko is caring, sweet and passionate; he has found his mate, his reason for existing and he wants her to be his queen. When he learns what happened to Gabby his approach is romantic and loving. He has Gabby write a list of 10 places that she wants to see and he takes her to all of them. He is determined to earn her trust, her love and her heart. With Neeko’s time and patience, he is able to show Gabby that she is his soul mate and his missing piece. Neeko is a very passionate, and a dirty immortal lover, (sheesh my panties were wet).

 

“You taste so sweet. I wonder where else you taste sweet. Come on baby. Let me know what I’m doing to you. I want to know how good I make you feel. Oh, baby you taste as sweet as I thought. “

“Oh God, Neeko!”

“That’s right, baby. Give me all of you. You taste so sweet.”

“This is all mine, Neeko. All mine.”

“Yes, baby. Use me and abuse me.”

 

Having a human as a mate is not common for Neeko and his people. When Gabby’s life is threatened he stops at nothing to protect her and finds out why demons are after her. Neeko’s secrets and past are the real threats that endanger Gabby. He keeps the real truth of his people and the dangers for humans in their world from Gabby. By doing this, Neeko earns her distrust.   When Gabby’s destiny is finally revealed (AND DARE I SAY HOLY BATMAN AND ROBIN) things finally make sense, all the missing pieces are put together.  

Neeko and Gabby deserve a happily ever after but the truth will test their love. Will Neeko really be able to accept what Gabby truly is? Will the demons lurking take what they believe is theirs? Will Neeko pick his true love or turn his back on his soul mate? There were so many WTF happened moments that I was like, why the hell did I not see that? The ending left me speechless, I mean my mouth wide open speechless. I need book 2 now (yeah you read right) there is a book 2. Did I like the ending? Would I have waited to get Book 2 before reading book 1? NEGATIVE. This read was worth the ending, I love it. FYI Tiffany Flowers I am thinking I might flash into book 2, like now!!! AWESOME!!!
