Scarred Series #2 

Just when it seems things can’t get worse…they do.

When Kiara wakes up as a vampire, she knows things will never be the same. Her best friend is dead and the demon that killed her is still out there somewhere. They're back to square one and Kiara’s newfound thirst hovers over everything they do. The hostility between Trent and Kaleib still brews just below the surface. Will Kiara hold it together or will she lose control? Will her new thirst be too much?

Kiara blames Trent for Sarah’s death and hates herself every time she feels something for him. Their budding trust is tested. Despite everything, he tries to be there for her. By her bedside when she wakes, helping her figure out how to tell her godparents what she is now, even staying in her house when she can’t sleep.

When Kiara’s dreams are plagued with visions of Sarah threatening her, Kaleib and Trent say that it's coincidence. Her mind dealing with the loss. But as the visions come while she’s awake, it looks less like coincidence and more like something sinister.


Is it her anger over Sarah’s untimely death or is it something more? Something dangerous?

She reads any genre as long as the book sounds interesting. Which may explain why she can’t and never will be able to stick to one genre in her writing. From Contemporary Romance to Women’s Fiction to Paranormal Romance to Poetry and more to come. When she’s not writing or reading she enjoys getting swept away in a great TV show, going to the theater, listening to music, cooking and many different forms of art.

Random Review . . . Rewritten by Bronwyn Green

Rewritten
(The Bound Series, Book 7)
Bronwyn Green
September 27, 2017


Betrayed and completely exposed, she'd sworn off kink. Hell, she'd sworn off men. But she hadn't counted on him...

One of the hottest voices in Sci-Fi, Angus Domhnull is renowned not just for his sweeping sagas, but for his stupidly gorgeous looks—and the fact that he’s taken almost five years to finish his latest novel. Now, assistant editor, Eliza Burrows, is stuck minding him, and his brooding nature is pushing every sexually submissive button she has. But even if Angus wasn’t her publisher’s star author, he’d be off-limits—after a painful betrayal, Eliza doesn’t play anymore, and she’s not about to start again with him.

Unable to deliver his long-awaited manuscript, Angus is saddled with a keeper—and her creative input—that he never asked for. Despite the resentment and animosity brewing between them, he finds himself drawn to Eliza. As he learns more about the intriguing woman behind the prickly facade, he falls for her, hard and deep.

When the attraction between them ignites, Eliza lets Angus bring her to one place she swore she’d never go again—her knees. He wants more than just her submission, but her past and the secrets she’s hidden could destroy everything...


My Review:

5 stars

I don't think I've ever used the word "refreshing" to describe a book, but that's exactly how it felt to read this book.

While I've read my fair share of BDSM centered romances, I felt like this one went some much deeper. It wasn't just, kink. It wasn't just tying her up. It wasn't just spanking her or flogging her. **But man were those some deliciously decadent scenes!!** This book delved deeper into what she actually felt when the events took place. It gave us what Eliza felt when Angus bound her hands or restrained her in any way. It gave us her feeling of flight when she plateaued and how she felt like nothing could intrude on that moment of painful pleasure. 

I really enjoyed how they became friends before they became more. I loved that angus was so caring and charming. It was great to see that while they both had their faults, they were perfect or each other. I loved how they uplifted each other when needed.

I thought it was important that the author pointed out that what happened to Eliza, happened to others as well. I liked that she touched on the tragedy that befell one of the women. It gave credence to showing people that they don't have to suffer in silence and I loved that she wrote about Eliza seeking therapy.

This was an emotional read that kept me intrigued and entertained and I look forward to more from the author.

HLMK- Teaser 4

Sometimes love needs a second chance… I never looked back after skipping out on my own wedding, even if it did leave me estranged from most of my family. Eight years later, I have the life I’ve always wanted. As an advertising account executive, my world is damn near perfect. Until I come face-to-face with my past. With the man I once loved. The man who holds my future in his hands. The man who’s hell-bent on getting even with me for leaving him at the altar. Even with all the unfinished business between us, I still love Knox Montgomery. The only problem? He loves me…KNOT.

My Review:

4 stars

Emma Jane and Knox gave us a really great story about second chance love. I enjoyed getting to know them and especially liked the supporting characters (but really just Beckett, lol). 

Emma Jane and Knox beat all the odds against them from high school sweethearts to college love. They made it through so much only to have it crash and burn when Emma Jane neglected her "bridely" duty. It was fun to watch them reconnect, at work no less. I enjoyed their story, but I didn't truly connect with them. Then when everything was revealed I just wanted to punch a few people. Seriously, open your mouth and talk!

Regardless, it was a really good plot, well-written, and I look forward to more from this author.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC.

She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Random Review & Release . . . Sheet Music by KL Myers


SHEET MUSIC, a Rocker Romance by K.L. Myers is LIVE!

Razor's Edge Series #1


My name is Cayson James Razor, front man and lead singer for Razor’s Edge. I’m a rocker through and through, and nothing can change me. I don’t believe in romance and happily ever afters. Or at least that’s what I thought. 

Enter Kayla Marshall, romance writer and travel companion for thirty days. She’s oblivious to how the real world works. It’s my duty to open her eyes to the fantasy land she lives in.

When the unthinkable happens and my long-time friend and drummer for Razor’s Edge leaves for rehab in the middle of a sixty-day, forthy-three-city tour, I’m faced with the reality that there is more to life than the music. But before I can tell Kayla that I was wrong, she disappears.

Now I’m questioning everything. Are there such things as happily ever afters, or are they just a fantasy people believe in? 

This is my journey to discover if a rock god can give up his evil ways to find the one he was destined for.

My Review:

4 stars

This was my first rockstar romance in a while and although initially apprehensive (I've over-indulged in the genre lol) I was beyond glad that I gave this book a chance. I've been a fan of KL Myers' since she gave me gorgeous firemen and she renewed my vigor for rockstars.

I enjoyed the relationship development between Cayson (great name, BTW) and Kayla. There were times when I wanted to smack them both over the head and there were also times that I just sat back and went "le sigh." Also, Cayson . . . ego much? They made a really cute couple though.

There were some questions that I felt were left unanswered, but hopefully they'll be addressed in upcoming books in the series. I look forward to delving further into the guys of Razor's Edge.

Random Review . . . Shatter Me by Alex Grayson

SM_RB_BANNER

Will her past finally shatter her?
Originally released in 2015, Shatter Me - book one in The Jaded Series by Alex Grayson - is available exclusively on Amazon and is #FREE for Kindle Unlimited subscribers!

SM_RB_1

Pain.

That’s a word Bailey Winsor knows well, having endured it since she was a child from the people who were supposed to protect her. Just when her life appears normal, something Bailey has never experienced, she meets a man and falls in love.

Love can be deceiving.

Bailey jumps from the frying pan that was her childhood into the burning bowels of hell, which is her sick and twisted husband. It’s hopeless. Suffering more years of abuse, Bailey eventually realizes she has no choice but to run. Forced to stop in a small town in Ohio, Bailey encounters a town full of people that welcome her with open arms, especially Jaxon Walker, the tattooed and pierced local bar owner. Bailey has secrets she’s unwilling to reveal. Jaxon senses her fear and refuses to give up trying to discover them.

Will Bailey be brave enough and learn to trust Jaxon with her deepest secrets? Will Jaxon be strong enough to protect Bailey when her past comes knocking at her door?

Although book one in Alex Grayson's debut series, Shatter Me may be read and enjoyed as a standalone.

***TRIGGER WARNING! This book contains vivid violence, sexual abuse, and emotionally volatile situations and may not be appropriate for all readers. It is intended for mature audiences ages 18+ only.

My Review:

3.5 stars

This book was a bit hard for me to review because I couldn't decide if I should give it 3.5 stars or 4 stars. Ultimately, I went with 3.5 because while I really like it, there were too many things I couldn't look past.

There's a strong difference between sexual abuse and sexual torture; for me Bailey was sexually tortured for the majority of her life. She struggled and I was extremely glad that she found the strength to escape. I felt like she deserved some good in her life and the scene where she's behind the bar with Jax approaching her - OMG!! While the emotion didn't overwhelm me, the thought of her being that afraid, that terrified, struck deep and I found myself so emotional. I loved the feel of the small town "adopting" her as their own. That juxtaposed so much negativity in her life that there were good people in the world. I loved that Jax was so fiercely protective of his family and that while he had his own issues, he was still able to be such a sweetheart. I also liked the author's note at the end and her explanation behind some f the scenes.

The issues I had with this book:1 - The trust and ultimately the relationship development between Jax and Bailey. Within a week or so, she trusted him. Their relationship deleted slower, but my issue comes with the fact that Bailey was tortured in the worst way possible her ENTIRE life. She had no counseling. She had no outlet. I don't think she would have trusted him so soon considering her background. Jax's sisters and mom and Gram, yes, but not necessarily Jax.2 - Stephen (Steven?) and his background. Where did his crazy come from??? How could he be so abusive and no one suspect it with him so in the limelight?3 - Missing the obvious. When Stephen finally made his move, how did no one suspect that???? On that same note, I found it unrealistic that absolutely no one blamed Bailey for what happened. Grief and anger makes people irrational, so I couldn't see not one person casting blame in that aspect.

Overall, I liked the book and would definitely read more from the series. I look forward to hearing Nick's story.

WOLF HOLLOW - BOOK 

Wolf Hollow Ebook cover  

A REBELLIOUS OUTCAST  

Cocky. Coy. Wolf shifter. Tabor is the hollow’s only half-breed, scorned and forbidden to use his powers. Constantly overlooked despite his strengths, Tabor believes Sasha is as shortsighted as the rest of the pack until she proves there’s more to her than a blindly obedient lapdog to the council.  

A DUTIFUL PUREBLOOD  

Spirited, stubborn, and deeply loyal, Sasha feels the pressure from her pack to claim another pureblood, yet no one is brazen enough to defy the elders and toy with her . . . no one besides a sexy, hotheaded half-breed.  

AN ATTRACTION THAT THREATENS THE FUTURE OF THE PACK 

 Bewildered by the deceptively proud and surprisingly sensual Sasha, Tabor would risk everything to claim her. Despite her vanishing bloodline, Sasha can’t resist the charismatic half-breed even as predators threaten their pack and the elders pressure her to breed with a pureblood. In a fantastical post-apocalyptic world, where only the strongest survive, sometimes trusting the heart is the bravest act of all.

My Review:

5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! At first, I wasn't sure what to expect because Nikki Jefford is a new author for me, but I love paranormal romance and the cover looked great, so I jumped in.

The opener had me thinking that maybe I'd read the blurb wrong because of the situations Sasha and Tabor were in. Of course, I read it two times after that to make sure, lol. Turns out, my impatience had gotten the best of me. Tabor was somewhat of an outcast due to the elder's fears and quite a bit of the pack not accepting him.  He's the only half-breed wolf/wizard and his entire life has been filled with ridicule and bullying. I loved his character though.  I liked that he let Sasha be the leader. I liked that he recognized his weaknesses, but at the same time accepted his strengths. He was such a sweet man, even though his life had been more struggle than anything.

I hated that Sasha felt the weight of obligation so heavily. She held the impossible mantle of leadership amongst men who would have her be more of a puppet than anything else. Even when she felt as though everyone had cast her aside as no more than a breeder and cared nothing about her happiness and wants, she still remained loyal to her pack. Just when she finally decided to go for what she wanted and be happy her past came back to threaten everything she held dear.

I hate that there was so much manipulation and underhandedness among the pack leaders, only out to get what they wanted, but it made for a very entertaining read. The emotion within the pages and the depth of the characters was amazing. The plot was extremely well-paced and kept me intrigued throughout the entire book. If I had to say one thing I didn't like, it was the distinction between the different types of wolves. I would've liked more background on the differences among them, but it didn't detract from the book at all.

Hopefully, there's more to come from Wolf Hollow (Wolfrik? Elsie?) and I look forward to more from his author.
