Darkest Night by Tara Thomas Blog Tour



In this first novel in the explosive, brand-new romantic suspense Sons of Broad series from Tara Thomas comes a novel of deadly secrets and hidden danger. In the sultry streets of Charleston, one family, ruled by its powerful, take-no-prisoners sons, has risen to the top. But a merciless enemy is out to destroy them…and everyone they hold close…

Tilly Brock has learned—the hard way—how to take care of herself. Once a pillar of Charleston society, her family lost everything in the wake of a shocking scandal. And then Tilly lost the only boy she ever loved.

Keaton Benedict is Charleston’s most notorious bachelor. But in spite of all his advantages—the money, the women, the family name—he longs for more: the heart of the young woman he still can’t forget.

When Keaton re-enters Tilly’s life, after all these years, she is torn between feelings of doubt and desire. Can they put the past behind them and learn to love again? Tilly is willing to try. But Keaton is afraid that a vengeful enemy is watching—and waiting to destroy them. Can the rekindled flame of their love defeat the deadliest rival and light their way forward in the darkest night?

Two scantily clad women strutted out onto the stage.

Keaton was too far away to see details. All he could make out were tiny bikini tops and even tinier thongs. Blondes. And pretty enough to make any red-blooded man fantasize about ripping the scraps of fabric off them. A movement to the side of the stage caught his eye. A server. He only saw her profile, but there was something about her.

He slid off the barstool to get a closer look.

“Hey, man,” Michael called after him. “Where are you going?”

Keaton didn’t reply.

“Where’s Benedict going?” he heard someone ask. “He’s interested in a dancer? Here?” someone else asked.

Keaton shook his head; it wasn’t a dancer that captured his attention. He wasn’t a stranger to the numerous clubs around the city that catered to wealthy men and their carnal needs. However, he’d never singled out any particular woman while at one. After all, he’d al- ways said, one half-naked woman was just as good as another. As made evident by the number of times his picture was in the society pages, but never with the same woman twice.

And yet, here he was, eyes fixed on the petite waitress at the side of the stage, currently trying to blend into the background and not take away from the duo on the stage. It was a horrible failure. He wasn’t sure why the management even felt the need to put anyone onstage with her working here. How could anyone look at those two with her in the room?

She moved with a grace that made the two blondes look like ducks swimming alongside a swan. She stretched out her hand to pass a glass to a man sitting on the far inside of a booth. Everyone in her vicinity turned to watch her lithe body.

“Drooling over a topless dancer?” Michael asked, coming up behind him. “I have to say, I’m a bit surprised. They look a bit rough.”

“Not a dancer,” Keaton let slip before he could stop himself.

Michael moved to stand beside him and followed his line of sight. His low whistle signaled he saw the woman in question. “Hot damn. Wait until a certain blonde hears about this. I’m sure Miss Elise Germain will love the fact that her intended is drooling over a half-naked barmaid.”

“Shut the fuck up.” Keaton didn’t shift his attention from the goddess taking drink orders. “I’m not engaged.” “Please,” Michael’s voice dripped with sarcasm. “You two have been promised to each since you were what? Fifteen?”

Keaton mumbled a curse under his breath, but right now, he couldn’t focus on anything other than the serving siren. It sounded so crazy, he couldn’t even verbalize it, but he thought he knew her from somewhere. Some- thing about the way she moved called to him. Pulled him forward for a better look.

He took another step toward her.

She was magnificent. And the way she moved continued to captivate the audience near her. Keaton’s eyes traveled over her body, taking in as many details as possible: her light brown skin, the curve of her hips, and the slope of her breasts covered by a tight cropped shirt. He knew they would be oh-so-soft to touch. His eyes drifted higher at the same time she turned her head his way and he froze.


He couldn’t breathe. It couldn’t be.

What was she doing in Charleston? The last he’d heard, her family had moved to Texas. Granted, they’d both been fourteen at the time, but he’d never forgot- ten the day he’d got home from school, walked into the eerily quiet kitchen, and discovered his life had changed forever.

Tilly always came over to his house after school to help him with his homework. Usually her mother would come over with her and gossip with his mom. But there was nothing that day. He’d looked out the back door to get a peek of their house and gasped. There were men all over the yard, carrying furniture.

He’d run back inside and up the stairs to his mother’s room and, with a stomach filled with dread, asked where Mama Ann and Tilly were. His mother arched a perfectly shaped eyebrow. She didn’t like that her children called their neighbor Mama Ann, but every- one called her that. It was just her personality. She was so kind and loving, the name came naturally.

“They’re moving to Texas,” she said, and his world shifted out of focus.

“Why?” he managed to croak out. Texas was so far away. It made no sense why they would move away from their family like that and so suddenly.

 “It’s been discovered that Mr. Brock has been embezzling money from your father.”

“What?” He couldn’t believe it. Not Tilly’s dad. He was stealing from them? Something didn’t sound right. His mother gave him a sad smile. “I’m afraid he was caught red-handed. The Brock family’s basically ruined now. Best they move and try to start over.”

His parents had always joked that he and Tilly would get married one day. Everyone talked about it and he didn’t even care because Tilly was smart and pretty. The week before, he’d kissed her for the first time. Her lips had been soft and sweet, and he’d looked forward to kissing them over and over. How could he kiss her if she were in Texas?

“Your father’s going to promote Howard Germain.

Isn’t his daughter in your class, too?”

Elise. Tilly’s best friend. Or was. He felt sick. He mumbled a half-intelligible answer to his mom and ran down the stairs to the living room. He had to call Tilly. Had to talk to her, even if it was only to say good-bye. But their phone had already been disconnected and when he went to their house, the men moving all the furniture told him they’d already left.

Tilly Brock put on her best plastic smile and muttered a soft, “Excuse me, please,” to the man blocking her path to her customer. She recognized the move for what it was: an attempt to make her reach across him. Two more months. Two more months. She grit her teeth and made sure the men saw just enough of her cleavage as she handed the drink to the waiting customer.

“Thank you, darling,” he said, eyes firmly planted on her chest, never once looking her in the eyes. “Why ain’t someone as pretty as you up onstage?”

Like she didn’t hear that ten times a night. Her mother might not roll over in her grave at the thought of her daughter serving drinks at a gentlemen’s club, but Tilly knew she’d come back from the dead for the sole purpose of telling her how disappointed she was if she even thought about dancing topless.

“Two left feet,” she told the guy instead.

“Trust me.” His laugh gave her chills. “It ain’t your feet we’re interested in.”

Two more months. I can do two more months.

Onstage, the dance was almost over. One of the blond twins glared at her and in doing so, tripped and almost fell. Several men booed. The other twin shot her a look that told Tilly they were blaming everything on her. Oh well, what else was new. It wasn’t a day that ended in “y” if she didn’t piss off the Wonder Twins.

She gathered several empty glasses and nodded as a few drink orders were given. Her tray was heavy, but she thought she could make it back to the bar. She turned that way and suddenly felt someone’s eyes drilling holes into her from the back of the room. Out of habit, she lifted her head to try and find who was watching her so intensely.

She scanned the crowd, but no one looked out of place. Then she saw him, standing slightly off to the side, watching her with an easy confidence, but with a tilt of his head that somehow seemed familiar. He recognized her at the same instant she recognized him.

Keaton Benedict.

Her tray and glasses fell to the floor.

Meet the Naughty Princess Club: a brand new series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that introduces readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that ensue when three women start a new business to make it rain.


Once upon a time Cynthia was the perfect housewife. Between being the President of the PTA and keeping her home spotless without a hair (or her pearls) out of place, her life was a dream come true. Her husband was once her knight in shining armor, but now he’s run off with all their money…and the babysitter.


Dressed as a princess at the annual Halloween block party on Fairytale Lane, she meets two other “princesses” also facing money troubles: antique store owner Ariel and librarian Isabelle. When the women are invited to wear their costumes to a party where they’re mistaken for strippers, Cindy, Ariel, and Belle realize that a career change could be the best way to make their money problems go bippity-boppity-boo.


But can structured Cindy approach a stripper pole without sanitizing wipes? And could the blue-eyed anti-prince that has been crossing her path become Cindy’s happily ever after? At the Stroke of Midnight is a hilarious, empowering story where princesses can save themselves while slaying in stilettos.

Let me start off by saying I was super excited to be able to review this book. I love this author’s writing and have read every single book she has written.  This is book one of her new contemporary romance Naughty Princess Club Series and it was amazing.


This book started off great and had me hooked. I loved almost everything about this book. The main character was hysterical and the chemistry between both Cynthia and P.J. was fantastic. The secondary characters were perfect. I loved all the one liners that came out of Ariel’s mouth and Isabelle adds that extra layer to make it all just work perfectly.


The plot was fresh and even though it was a spin of a well-known fairy tale it was unique and a fun read.  This book had me laughing out loud several times but, I will say a few times my heart ached for Cynthia and I wanted to throat punch her ex-husband and family a bunch of times.


The writing was fantastic, the book flowed perfectly and I never felt like I needed to skim through it. It held my attention from beginning to end and that is something that has not been happening lately.  The author’s humor is unique and witty and will keep you smiling from cover to cover.


“Oh my God this is so much fun! IT’s like having my very own wind-up, talking hussy doll.”


This is the first installment of author Tara Sivec’s new series and I am looking forward to reading the next one.  If you are looking for a fun read that will have you laughing out loud the majority of the time then this is a book you must read.

Arianna had relaxed quite a bit during our conversation. Her demeanor was casual as she played with the strap of her shoe. Her laugh came naturally. It was easy to pretend that we were still together as we sat there talking. Our arms were even touching. It sent a jolt of electricity down my spine to feel my skin against hers again. It felt like we were finally shifting, finally moving in the right direction. It was everything I’d hoped tonight would be.
After a brief pause in talking about our summer plans, Arianna pursed her lips and said, “Why have we never been friends before now? We’re in the same grade, and we must have had classes together before…but I don’t recall ever seeing you before a couple of months ago.”
I sighed, not sure how to answer that. “I don’t know… We must have just kept missing each other. But I’m so glad that’s not the case anymore. You…there’s just something about you. You’re kind, warm, accepting. You see past people’s faults, to the person they are underneath. You’re patient, forgiving, and open to things that are a little…different. But you don’t take crap from anyone either, and you stand up for what you believe in. You’re just…amazing.”
Her expression was blank. “You saw all that, sitting across the room from me?”
I peeked up at her with a small smile that I couldn’t hide. “I see you, Arianna. I see the real you.” Straightening, I met her eye and held her gaze. “And I really like what I see.”
Arianna held her breath as we stared at each other. Her heart rate spiked, and I momentarily felt bad that I could hear it. She’d probably be embarrassed if she knew I could. But then her eyes drifted to my lips, and I really didn’t care that I had a slight advantage. All I cared about was whether she wanted me to kiss her right now. Was she ready to see me as more?
I leaned in, tentative and unsure. Maybe I was misinterpreting this. Maybe, because I wanted it so badly, I was seeing something that wasn’t there. My heart was thumping in my chest so loudly, Nika probably thought I was doing something much more strenuous than just sitting on a bed, staring at Arianna, and waiting for our second first kiss to happen.






AND IT’S HERE!!!!!!!   Everyone is back in this story but this is Nika and Julian Story and it’s a ride!!  It had everything I was hoping for except the one thing I always need and that is epilogue.  I mean I keep looking for it but it’s not there and I am hopeful that means maybe another book?!  Maybe it means I want too much and I can’t let go of this family ever.   I also want to type a million spoilers but those of you that have been with the family you are in it to win it at this point and you don’t want that!!    Just know this book does not disappoint, there is laughter, there is drama, and there are those moments my stomach was like just read ahead, go ahead but in the end I hope everyone gives this series a try and loves it as much as I do!!

Teaser Video





I know so might find this story taboo and I might be a little naive but I for one fell in love with Cam and David.


In just a second in time Cam’s life is changed and everything she thought was her perfect no longer exists.   This story deals with real topics such as self harm, depression, alcohol abuse and child neglect.  There were times that my heart broke and I wanted to reach into this book and take Cam and hug her.


Cams character is one that will stay with me forever.  She’s 17 years old but so mature, damaged and confused.  She knows that after the accident she no longer sees life the way she once did.  She’s no longer like her friends or the rest of the kids her age.  She is also strong, confused and trying to find a place for herself in her new world.  David comes into her life in at time she needs no judgement just guidance.  It is through this time together that the two develop a love that is taboo.  I loved how David saw so much more to Cam than others couldn’t.  He was able to reach her and bring out of the darkness when no one else understood or cared.


This was a story that although the subject matter was hard and the relationship between Cam and David taboo, I couldn’t stop thinking this is so right.  I tried to fight that feeling but the more I got to know these characters and their story the more I saw a true and honest love.  My heart broke for Cam, she went through so much in this book but I also appreciated how the author deals with the emotional and traumatic damage.  The author weaved together a perfect story of healing, love and forgiveness. I really enjoyed this story and highly recommended it.

I am a huge sucker when it comes to a sexy hot man in a suit so when I saw this was not only one hot guy but the first of three hot sexy guys, I knew I had to check this one out.   Add in the fact I love finding new authors to read and have heard great things about Melanie Moreland so was excited to check this one out.


Bentley and Emmy come from two very different worlds.  Bentley is very proper, brought up with money where Emmy has had to work hard just to scrape by.  Their paths cross by coincidence and from the moment they meet, the connection is instant.  Bentley is normally the rigid, very serious business man but when he is spending time with Emmy, she seems to bring out a different side of him, but can these two people who are very different make it work.


I really enjoyed the premise of the book and must say it pulled me in right away.  I fell in love with Bentley and his two best friends.  I loved the bond these three shared and looking forward to getting both Aiden and Maddox’s stories.  I loved Bentley, he was very formal and your typical rich businessman but with Emmy we got to see a different side of him and I loved him more as we got to see more of the real Bentley.


I liked Emmy’s character and I liked how different she was from Bentley but I really struggled to connect with her character and at times her connection with Bentley.    I can’t really point to what exactly it was about her that I didn’t like found there were times that her character bugged me.  I felt the chemistry she had with Bentley but I did struggle feeling the emotion she shared with him.


Overall this was a good sweet read that added some drama and angst towards the end.  I enjoyed the authors writing style and love these three main male characters she has created for this series.  Although  I know I am probably in the minority but I found the ending of the book being a bit over the top for my liking but still an enjoyable read and has left me anxiously awaiting the next two books.

Madman by WS Greer Blog Tour, Review & Review




Title: Madman
Series: Love & Chaos #1
Author: WS Greer
Genre:  Dark Romance/Thriller
Release Date: February 5, 2018






People fear what they don’t understand. Maybe that’s why they all fear me. I’m sure they have their reasons, I just couldn’t possibly care what any of them are. As long as they’re afraid. 

Born to a drug dealer father and a drug addict mother, I’ve been through enough to make a normal person lose their mind five times over. I’m not normal. Normal is for weak people, and I’m anything but weak.

My childhood was made of nightmares, but there was one light in all my darkness. Her name was Reina Wilde, and when my mother would hit me or pass out in the middle of the living room on her high, I would confide in her. We were from completely different worlds, but she meant something to me, though I never figured out what, because she left. In the years that followed, I built a reputation for myself, and let go of any and all deluded notions of love. 

I’ll never go straight now. It’s just too much fun taking things from people who are powerless to stop me. And make no mistake about it, I take what I want, from who I want, when I want. 

I’m infamous in this city. But everything changes when, after years apart, I finally see Reina again, and she’s standing next to my enemy–the underboss of the Philadelphia mob. 

It’s not just about power anymore. It’s not about respect. No, this is personal now. 

Gasoline has been thrown on the flame, and for Reina, I’m about to burn the whole world to the ground.





This is the first book I have read by this author but it certainly will not be the last. The plot was not what I expected and not what I usually read but it pulled me in and had me hooked from cover to cover.

The plot was full of twists and turns and some parts had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I will warn you that this book has some violent parts so just keep that in mind when you begin the book.


The main characters name was Solomon and I don’t even know where to begin. He had a rough childhood and I guess growing up in the projects made him hard but holy cow he had a violent side that was ruthless. I felt sorry for Solomon and It made sense that he was the way he was because of all the horrible things he had to endure from such a young age. His relationship with his friend Nix was unique and true. Reina was the girl he became involved with and the way their relationship built was perfect. The author did a good job at making that relationship realistic. The author done her research on poverty and gangs and what it would be like growing up with nothing. I loved the way she wrote the main character Solomon. The things he said made you stop and think and you certainly could sympathize with him too. The book was just well written.


  “I stop walking and face the blonde-hair, blue-eyed, adorable, beautiful, annoying little monster.”


The book flowed really well and the story even though had some pretty gory parts had me hooked and waiting to see how things were going to turn out. I don’t want to give away any of the plot but I will say the title is very fitting.

Even though this isn’t my usual genre I really enjoyed this book and certainly would read more books written by this author.

Oh this book … I love when I can see an authors growth when I’m reading a series and I got that with this book. This was a story I never wanted to put down and it was amazing how LJ entwined pieces of book 1. Yes, that’s a warning book one should be read first but if you don’t want to you can totally read this as a stand alone just know book 2 does spoil book 1.

Mia and Derek’s story is one that instantly grabs you and holds your attention and heart, it’s a story that you can’t walk away from and one that gave me the butterflies and hurt in my stomach I long for when I read. I will admit I had one complaint and it was the constant reference to Derek as a B.B. for me it was repetitive and overly used. Everything else though made up for that but I would not be honest if I didn’t admit I wanted to stab things the more it was used. I loved this story, I talked about this story for days after I finished this book and I really loved that I could share this story with my daughter. She now loves LJ’s writing as much as me!!! I highly recommend you listen to the playlist as you read because it completely intensives the story and I might have cried several times but that’s what makes me love a story even more.
