Hot Damn!  Small Town Siren had my heart pounding, my face flush, and my temperature rising.  This is one read where I looked around the room to make sure no one was watching me.  I almost had to break out B.O.B. or go track down Hubs to get some relief. Not for the faint of heart ladies.  This one is hot, smutty, sinfull, and steamy all wrapped up in two sexy cowboy packages.

Oh how I wish I was Abby Moore.  Who would not want two billionaire cowboys hell bent on giving so you much pleasure that you could die of an overdose of orgasms?  Sophie Oak takes and ordinary small town girl and makes her extraordinary.  Abby has worked so hard to prove to the town of Willow Fork that she is worthy of their respect.  She has become an amazing trauma nurse, but has taken a job in a diner while she helps out her ill mother.  She is quiet and keeps to herself trying to stay out of the towns spotlight.  People are still angry with her because of a tragic accident years ago.  It was not her fault.  She just needs to keep her head down until her mother is well enough to take care of herself. Then she can leave Willow Fork for good…

That plan goes to hell when Abby’s best friend Christa shares Abby’s dirty little secret with two of the hottest and richest men in town.  Sam and Jack know what they want and are not afraid to take it.  Now they have their eyes set on a feisty little red head and are not going to take no for an answer.

When Gage discovers that the alluring woman before him is the key to his latest acquisition, claiming her as his suddenly doesn’t seem quite so cut-and-dried. To get what he wants, he must get to know the fierce woman willing to face him down—as she steadily steals his heart.

Gage’s persistence and intense passion war with Marina’s determination to protect her family. As they delve deeper into an affair they didn’t see coming, Marina’s torn: Will she lose her heart to Gage—or everything she holds dear?

 My Review

bigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472

Holy Hotness!!!  The chemistry between Gage and Marina is smoldering.  This book had me fanning myself and my girl parts doing the happy dance.

Marina  Knight feels like her family sees her as a lost cause. They handed her the family’s bakery to run because they figured that she could not screw that up.  She has worked really hard to try to prove to them that she is a valuable asset to the family business. When her families empire starts to crumble, all of the hard work that she has put into the bakery may no longer matter.  She decides that she needs to market her business and goes to a networking event to meet possible business owners that might be willing to add some of her baked goods to their menus. And of course, as fate would have it, she crosses paths with the very man that might end up stealing her future.

Gage Emerson is here on a mission.  Find a member of the Molina family and convince them to sell him the property where Autumn Harvest currently resides.  He knows he can buy the property fix it up and sell or lease it and make a killing.  Then he sees her and his plan gets put on the back burner.   She is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen.  He feels butterflies in his stomach as he approaches her.  Almost immediately sparks begin to fly and he finds himself all choked up and struggling to speak to her.  And before he knows it he has insulted her and she is storming out the door.

I love the banter between Marina and Gage.  It seems as if neither of them has a filter when they are around one another.  Especially Gage.  Which is hysterically funny.  I really enjoyed the ass Gage made of himself time and time again.  Marina is perfect for Gage because she is Sassy Sicilian who calls him out on the rug.

“I am not forcing you into anything, Marina,” he says softly, his eyes glowing as they drink me in.  “Unless…you like it that way.”

Well, holy shit.  The man needs duct tape wound around his mouth about twenty times. He says the worst things ever.  “Did you really just say that?”

“Did I really just say what?”

“Is it just me you say idiotic, sexist, disgusting things to, or do you talk this way to all the women you encounter?”

He cracks his eyes open.  “Did I just really say that out loud?”

“Yep,” I confirm, enjoying his absolute misery.

This is just a taste of the witty banter between Gage and Molina that had me turning the pages until I finished this book at midnight last night.  I have never laughed so hard and at the same time been so turned on.  Gage can charm a girl out of her panties with just one heated look.

If you like hot headed Sicilian and man who cannot keep his foot out of his mouth, you will love Torn.

Melody Grace With Every Heartbeat Cover Re-Reveal, Review, Author Interview, and **Giveaway**

TEASERPICNEW

Excerpt

A new burst of music sounds, pulsating and wild, and suddenly, my thoughts fade clear away, blotted out as completely as the sun during an eclipse.

I see him.

Standing, poised, waiting for his intro, his body proud and arched, arms raised. There’s a girl waiting beside him, his partner, but I only have eyes for him.

God, he’s gorgeous. Dark curly hair, tanned skin, and piercing blue eyes that seem to shimmer against the gold of his skin. He’s dressed in a starched white shirt and tuxedo pants that fit him like a glove. The breath is sucked from my lungs, and I feel a thrill ripple through me, a sensation I’ve never known before: anticipation, as if I know something important is about to happen. Something life-changing.

And then he starts to dance.

Dear Lord …

I swear, time stops as I watch him move. It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen: part Latin ballroom, part street, part modern contemporary. And all of it totally devastating.

I stare, awestruck, as he plays out a wicked game with his partner: bringing her in, sending her away, lifting her as effortlessly as if she was made of air. His movements are bold, dominating. There’s no cheap grinding, or tacky thrusts, but somehow, every step oozes sensuality, such an intimate connection between the dancers that I feel myself start to blush.

It’s mesmerizing, out of this world, and I’m completely lost to it, caught up in the story of love and betrayal they’re telling with their bodies until at last, he whirls her out one more time and then pulls her back; dipping her so low her hair grazes the ground.

They freeze there, holding the pose. There’s silence, so pure you could hear a pin drop, and in that moment, he lifts his head and looks out across the square.

Our eyes lock.

It’s only a split second, those piercing blue eyes on mine, but I feel the moment stretch for an eternity. His gaze crashes through me, setting every nerve and sense alight, as if I’m touchpaper and he’s a molten spark, dancing through my bloodstream.

And then the thunder of applause breaks the spell, and I realize I’m digging my nails into my palms, gasping for breath.

Who is this man?

Synopsis:

Rome. The city of young lovers, old secrets, and intoxicating new desire…

I thought I knew what I wanted in life. I thought my destiny was set. Then I met him, and everything changed.

Raphael is bold, passionate, and seductive. He sees something in me I never dreamed possible, and now he’s determined to show me a world beyond rules — a dance without limits. I want to trust him, but I’m scared. Because I know once I fall, there’ll be no going back.

An innocent dancer. A mysterious stranger. As Annalise is drawn deeper into the romantic delights of Rome, she’ll question everything she believed about her future. But with opening night looming, can she find the strength to risk it all? And will she be forced to choose between her one true love, ballet, and the new passion in her heart?

Find out in this enchanting new series from Melody Grace.

NYT and USA Today Bestselling author – Sawyer Bennett

 “Melody Grace has crafted a sweeping and emotional romance that pulls you in so deep, you won’t ever want to surface. It’s that good.” 

NYT Bestselling author – Lauren Blakely

“Breathtakingly intense and unbelievably sexy – WITH EVERY HEARTBEAT will have you packing your bags for Italy to go find a real-life Raphael. Another sizzling must-read from Melody Grace!”

 NYT Bestselling author – Monica Murphy

“WITH EVERY HEARTBEAT will touch your heart and stir your blood. Lush and enchanting, a must for all you Dirty Dancing fans!”

My Review

bigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472

“That’s the dangerous thing about the truth:  once you grasp it, it cannot be un-learned.”

Raphael is a molto caliente, and talented Italian modern dancer.  He lives to dance.  His father has never accepted that he chose dancing in a street troupe over attending school and becoming a successful businessman.

Annalise has been working her entire life trying to being the best ballerina she can be to make her mother proud.  She lives and breathes dancing, from the moment she awakes, until she goes to bed at night.  But, will she ever be good enough to live up to her mother expectations or will she constantly fail her?

Annalise and Raphael are kindred spirits brought together by destiny.

“I feel his eyes on me long after I turn away.  That night, when I fall asleep, I dream only of him: dancing alone in a moonlit square, his body a blur of perfect motion.  His eyes blazing pure as the heavens.”

The thing about destiny is that what’s meant to be, will be, no matter how hard you try to fight it.

Melody Grace does an excellent job in setting the stage and taking the reader behind the scenes and into the world of ballet.  I could see the dancers, feel their pain after working such long hours, and feel sorry for them when they had to walk away from the pizza and gelato to keep up their tiny figures.

The character development is this story is exceptional.  Annalise’s innocence and desire to please her mother really shines true. but Melody also shows you a strong, sexy, and mature young lady that can choose her own path and still be successful.  Annalise becomes Raphael’s rock because she believes in him with all of her heart.

If you love hot, sexy, Italian men, who know what they want, and will stop at nothing to get it, then you will adore “With Every Heartbeat”.

Author Interview:

When did you realize that you wanted to be a writer?  When I was pretty young, about 11 or 12 years old. I would sit in the back of class scribbling bad poetry and lyrics in my notebooks 🙂 But I didn’t take it seriously until college, when I started working on my first novel. Then I was hooked!

Can you share a little bit about your writing process?  I’ll usually have a nugget of an idea, and let it sit in the back of my mind for a while, until more elements come together. Then I like to outline — I’m a nut for outlining! Some authors can write by the seat of their pants, but I like to know how the story ends before i begin. After that, it’s a question of being disciplined and getting words on the page until the dreaded first draft is done!

The next two questions are more for me and my indie author friends that are too afraid to push publish on amazon.

How did you know when your book was good enough that you should take the risk to self-publish? And once you did how did you go about promoting your book? It’s always scary, putting your work out there for people. I was lucky to have my amazing agent, Rebecca Friedman, holding my hand through the whole process. She was a huge support, and gave me the confidence to push forwards. UNBROKEN was a book I really believed in, and I felt like i had to get it out there and share it with the world!

To promote it, I learned from the best: I looked at some of the big names like Colleen Hoover, Cora Carmack and Emily Snow (authors I really love and respect) and saw how they built a readership through social media. There’s no cutting corners, you really have to put time and effort into being a part of the community, and build genuine relationships with bloggers and readers to make it work.

Do you have a favorite food or drink that you have to have when you are writing?

I am asking this because Ella Grace/ Christy Reece has to have chocolate and Lauren Blakely has to have tea or it is all down hill. 🙂

I have such a sweet tooth, it’s not even funny. I’m trying to cut back on cakes and muffins, but i’ll usually fold and get a blended creamy coffee drink to help me along.

Where do you draw inspiration for your characters?  All my characters are based a little bit on me… I try and ground them in emotions I’ve experienced, even if the details are different, to make that emotional connection with my readers.

I saw in your bio that you are a SoCal transplant. Where are you from originally?  I’m from a little village in the countryside in England, so I’m a long way from home! I love California, especially this time of year. It makes a change from freezing back home!

Do you have any brothers or sisters?  One sister, older. She says she can’t read my books, because she imagines me in all the sexy scenes! Ha, talk about a buzzkill.

Do you have any fun or interesting hobbies?  I need to get one! I’ve been writing full steam this year, so I’m looking for ways to relax… Maybe I should take up knitting for winter.

Who are your favorite authors?  On the indie side, I love Emily Snow, Lauren Blakely, Sawyer Bennet, Monica Murphy… The list goes on! I also love Marisa de los Santos, Eloisa James, and Sarah MacLean for my romance fix.

Is there any advice you can give to other indie authors out there?  Believe in your work, be open to critique, and never stop improving your craft. I look back at my early drafts and cringe, but you don’t get better unless you keep trying, so don’t give up!

Ever After Anthlogy: His Choice by Carrie Ann Ryan Review

EverAfter72-200x300

From five bestselling authors comes five brand new novellas sure to heat up the night.

From Carrie Ann Ryan‘s Dante’s Circle series, a demon from the fiery depths of hell must make his choice to follow in the footsteps of his father or love the submissive wolf who lays claim to his heart in His Choice.

From Marie Harte‘s Beasts of Burden, Eira, a fierce valkyrie, has spent fifty years trying to get a rise out of her goddess’s guardians. But when the battle-cat shifters give her what she wants, can she handle the heat—and the danger—that comes from loving them?

From Rebecca Royce‘s brand new series, the Alphas of each Werewolf Pack are on the brink of war. Travis Michaels will use all in his power to keep innocent Lilliana out of danger and into his arms…away from rival Alpha Cyrus Fennell.

From Lia Davis’s Ashwood Falls series, buried pain, old lies, and dangerous secrets aren’t enough to keep the sparks from flying as Sarah Mathews and rebel leader, Damian Archer, try to survive a new threat against their race.

From Leia Shaw’s Shadows of Destiny series, a war is brewing in the supernatural world. Rebel shifter Dalton’s only passion is protecting the colony, and flirtatious misfit, Eden, is a distraction he can’t afford. But as danger approaches, he learns that underestimating the sexy little wolf is a big mistake.

My Review

bigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472

I had to get this book because I fell in love with Fawkes in Her Warriors Three Wished and I have an obsession with the Dante’s Circle Series.

What would you do if everyone who wanted you only wanted you to fulfill their own needs and desires?

Leslie has been through hell on earth over the past year. Her brother tried to force her into a mating with their packs Beta named Hunter only to have it blow up in his face when she revealed the location where they were hiding Becca his true mate. Leslie’s brother would have been happy to have taken her life for her betrayal to him. The other pack members wanted to use her for mating because of her bloodline and then throw her away. Damaged did not even come close to describe how Leslie felt about herself.

Fawkes was spawn of the devil, literally. It was his destiny to walk on earth taking millions of souls devouring the human race. His birthday was coming up and he had a choice to make. Did he become his father’s ultimate soul catcher or was there another option. Fawkes saw his demon friend Balin find his true mates and escape the bowels of hell. Could he be that lucky and where would he start to look for her?

The thing about destiny is that no matter what you do you can never tell when it will sneak up on you.

Carrie Ann Ryan is masterful when it come to character development. Your heart can’t help but break for Leslie and what she has been through and you really do hope that Fawkes can find his other half. She does and excellent job at packing a ton of spice with action adventure in this shorter novella. I reads just like a full length novel, and you do not feel like you are missing anything. I am hoping to see more of Fawkes and Leslie in Tangled Innocence coming next year. Thank Goddess that I have the Redwood Pack Series to hold me over for until then.

If you like a sinfully sexy story that will have you panting like a wolf, then you will love Ever After.

When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Forever Young by Sawyer Bennett Blog Tour, Review, + **Giveaway**

Forever-Young-Banner (1)

Synopsis

She’s a loner, she likes to fight and, oh yeah…she has the ability to see the demons that lay beneath the faces of ordinary humans. It’s a gift Charlie Wright inherited the night her parents were brutally murdered when she was fourteen years old.

Now in her last year of high school, Charlie just can’t seem to keep herself out of trouble.  Rather than taking a one-way trip to juvenile detention, Charlie chooses to join a mysterious group called The ForeverLand Alliance.

And then her life really gets weird.

Charlie finds herself magically transported to an alternate universe. In Semper Terra, no one ages, people fly, and one stunningly gorgeous, immortal man manages to capture Charlie’s heart and awaken the adult woman she is becoming.

But it’s not all fun and games. For Charlie is training to become an Annihilator, a select group of Semper Terrans who protect mankind from all of those things that go “bump in the night”.

It’s only when Charlie finds herself stuck in the middle of a prophecy that could bring about the end of the world that she truly begins to understand the deep sacrifices she will have to make.

forever young

My Review

bigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472

 

What would you do if you were given the chance to start over? Would you take it?

Charlie is on her own because both of her parents tragically taken from her when she was only 13 years old. At a time when most girls need their mother more than they would like to admit. Sadly, Charlie was shuffled around from foster home to foster home until she became a ward of the state.

Dr. Tinsdale the school principal would say, “Trouble always seems to find you, Charlie.”

It was not like Charlie was going looking for trouble, but she found herself coming to the defense of those less fortunate more often then not. Protecting others was engrained in her as her parents had protected her.

It seems her most recent altercation might land her in some serious trouble, so, when Dr. Tinsdale offered her an out she did not have much choice but to take it. He introduces her to his friend Sebastian and when Sebastian showed Charlie what her life could be like, she was blown away. Semper Terra is the most beautiful place that Charlie has ever seen, and when Caiden walks in, her heart flutters, and she is captivated by is gorgeous good looks. But looks can be deceiving…

Caiden is a mentor and is smitten with Charlie from the moment he sees her. He does his best to keep his distance and remain professional as he trains with Charlie. He does not understand the pull Charlie has on him.  He has dated many beautiful women but something is different about Charlie.  As soon as she completes her training he throws caution the wind…

Then there is this whole prophecy thing.  Just yesterday Charlie was an ordinary girl.  Now she is expected to save the world?

I love the way that Sawyer has me completely enraptured in Semper Terra. I can feel the sun shining and hear the waves crashing on the beach. I feel as if I have been whisked away to neverland. Of course the character development in this story is stupendous. I see myself in Charlie. I was always getting into trouble trying to take down the bullies. I had more suspensions then any other honor student in the history of the school. I felt like Sawyer did and excellent job with Charlie in showing how much she truly cared for others. Caiden took my breath away. He is such a gentleman and a perfect hero to Charlies heroine.  Forever Young is passionate love story about first loves. I truly enjoyed this read and I hope to see Charlie and Caiden’s relationship grow even stronger in book two.

If you are a fan of paranormal romance, and want to start a sweet new series, you should pick up Forever Young.

My Review

bigstock_Five_stars_Mesh_13933472
Melody Anne delivers a scorchingly hot ending to a sinfully sexy series. I stayed up until 2:00 am to finish this book. I could not put it down.

Rachel Palazzo has been kidnapped by King Adriano of Corythia on Rafe and Avi’s wedding day. Of course Rafe wants to storm the palace and rescue his sister right away but Avi talks him into waiting a week before running after Rachel. Maybe Rachel and Adriane and rekindle old flames and give a relationship a shot. Or not…Adriane demands that Rachel marry him because she is carrying the heir to his throne. Rachel does not respond well to demands so she digs her heals in. She will not marry for anything other than love.

Shane knows what he wants and he wants Lea to be with him forever but Lea is tired of Shane’s secrets. Can she trust him enough to open up her heart again?

And yes, it finally happens Rafe and Avi get married. It is a beautiful wedding and everything Avi could have ever wanted.

I can’t believe it is over:( I have adored this series from the beginning. The character development throughout this series has been outstanding. I never in a million years thought that I would fall in love with Rafe. Avi makes him such a better man. Adriane and Rachel’s stubbornness made me want to scream at times. I loved the Alpha female in Rachel. She was not going to make it easy for Adriane. At least Adriane was just as stubborn and kept on trying. I swear he was a glutton for punishment. Shane earned my respect in this book for overcoming so much adversity and pouring his heart and soul into doing whatever it took to earn Lea’s love and trust. The plot twists had me turning the pages again and again.

Scorched has Action Adventure, Suspense, and Hot Steamy Romance all wrapped up in an sweet finale. Bravo Melody Anne! I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next.

Finding the Right Girl by Violet Duke Review and ***Giveaway***

From the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author who brought you the Nice Girl to Love trilogy, comes A Nice GUY to Love spin-off…

finding the right girl

Synopsis

Brian Sullivan has been in love twice in his lifetime. He lost his first love to early-onset Huntington’s, and he lost the other more recently…to his brother. And somehow, his heart has managed to heal itself after both. Amazingly, without therapy. That doesn’t mean Brian hasn’t gotten more wary along the way, however. In fact, he’s been thinking lately that maybe his brother’s now retired nothing-but-flings rule isn’t such a bad idea. Unfortunately, being the nice guy poster boy and all, he isn’t exactly versed in the fine art of flings. So he looks to the outrageously ‘unique,’ provokingly button-pushing Tessa Daniels for a crash course.

There’s absolutely no way he’s falling in love with this one…right?

Tessa has no idea what she was thinking telling Brian that she was some sort of fling expert. She’s never been flung before and she sure as heck doesn’t know where or how to begin flinging a guy like Brian. It was a temporary lapse in sanity, really–no doubt because of the can’t-help-but-fall-for-him brain fuzz that hits her whenever he’s around. Not only does the man have her being more herself than she’s ever been in her life, but he’s the only person she knows who seems to have as many demons and skeletons in the closet as she does. What’s more, he’s got her thinking of the one thing she stopped letting herself even hope for years ago.

A happily ever after.

My Review

Does true love only come once in a lifetime? How can you do everything right and still end up with a death sentence? Do you run and hide or do you love life to the fullest?

Brian Sullivan has done everything right. He was the rock his wife Beth needed when she was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease (HD). He stood by her even when she did not remember who he was. He is now the sole caregiver for his daughter Skylar and she is showing signs of having the horrible disease his wife fought for years. He really believed that Abby was the one for him, but she chose his brother Connor in the end. They are still really good friends, but it is not the same. He is so lost and lonely..

Tessa has done everything right. She took care of her sister and father when their HD was at its worst. She worked several jobs to keep them afloat and pay for their medical bills. Her mother walked out on them and left Tessa to pick up the pieces. She loved her family with all her heart and would not have given up her time with them for the world. She has never allowed anyone to get close to her for fear of losing them someday.

What happens when Brian and Tessa cross paths? Will each of them find the one person that can complete them? Could they have another chance at true love? Nobody else understands what it is like loosing someone to HD like they do. Or will this terrible disease drive a wedge between them and keep them from ever loving anyone again?

Violet does an excellent job teaching the reader about this terrible disease and the toll that it takes on the person that has HD as well as how it affects their friends and family. She shows us in this story that no matter how much time you might think you have on this earth, that you should live and love to the fullest. This book had me sobbing at one point and laughing at Tessa and her quirkiness that drove Brian mad. Brian is such a caring, kind soul and to top it off is smokin hot. He is an alpha male warrior when it comes to Tessa. I think his character might be have been inspired by MVD if I had to guess.

This book is about taking chances on love and living life to the fullest even in it’s darkest hours. If you like a hero and heroine that are willing to fight for each other and can beat the odds then you will love this wonderful love story.
