EvelynI pray to be forgiven for my sins, but the prayers of someone like me won’t dare breach the edge of heaven.Sins. All sins are equal in the eyes of God, but I’m not God. Some sins are far more wretched than others. And those sinners should pay, Evelyn. One sinner made me his sin, and I can’t let men like him live. They must face their judgement, Evelyn. I want to kill them. Every. Last. One.

Ezra James is no different, and I wanted to kill him, I needed to kill him, I’m was going to kill him…And then I found myself fascinated by him, obsessed and possessed in the most reverent of ways. I became his sinner, and he became my sin, but the wages of sin is death, so I must kill him.


The son of a whore, raised by gangsters, moulded into a key player in a corrupt world ruled by money and completely without morals.

This world can break a person. I’ve seen it time and time again. I never gave a shit, until the night I watched a man drop dead at the feet of a woman so broken she made even me feel whole. My little killer called to my depravity and everything in me demanded that I take her, possess her, own her.

Some monsters hide behind the faces of angels, where others stand in plain sight.

Damned. Broken. Irredeemable.

Through blood, absolution shall be found.

Michel’s Review

I love it when authors find a way to keep their beloved characters alive long after their series has finished and create a new series that brings new characters into the limelight. Bella Jewel has created a new series that features the children of the Sinners MC. Their stories are completely different from their parents. Their lives and friendships have been influenced by their parents positions in the MC but they have managed to carve out their own individuality and life.

MC Sinners Next Generation Series can be read as a stand alone series or after the MC Sinners series. Either way, the reader will become engrossed in these dynamic characters lives. Pandemonium is the first book in this new series.

Ava has been the princess of the Sinners MC. With her father being the president and her brother in law the vice president, she is royalty. She was born into the life but was protected from the violent business side. Now that she is an adult she is fiercely demanding her independence. She wants to make her own destiny in life outside of the MC.

She has a good job at a busy law firm. She has her own apartment. She pays her own bills. She dictates her own schedule. There are times when her father’s world bleeds over into her world. She has learned to be cautious, exercise safety, and keep silent about the club’s activities. When one of her father’s enemies abducts her and forces her to become a part of something that will destroy her, it crumbles the new life she has worked so hard to build. It destroys her confidence, her inner strength, and her ability to cope. She keeps this locked deep within her soul, she does not want her family or friends to feel responsible for her downfall. There is only one person that understands what she is going through. That person is also one of her father’s enemies. He is a different kind of enemy and a much stronger threat than the corrupt enemies in her father’s world. He is a cop with a vendetta against the MC Sinners. One wrong revelation could destroy her father and his world. But he is also a man that understands devastation to the soul.

Lucas has been through hell and back. He has never really recovered from the tragedies that set his life on the path he’s following now. The MC Sinners had a small hand in his life’s destruction and he has been trying to bring them down. When he finds out the beautiful young woman that he rescued is the president’s daughter, it puts him in a peculiar position. He wants to help Ava find herself once again and not become a damaged soul like he is. He wants this beautiful woman to find her strength. He wants her to have faith in herself. On the other hand she is a source of information that could bring down the club. She is his ticket for revenge for the destruction of his family.


The choices are not black and white. The perceptions of what happened aren’t completely accurate. The MC Sinners are not the evil foes he once believed them to be. As Ava’s downfall spirals out of control, Lucas and the MC Sinners may find they have more in common than they thought. They may have the same enemy.

The most important thing for both Lucas and the MC Sinners is that Ava heals and becomes the woman she was meant to be. Her soul is on the line. They will all have to show her that love can conquer anything.

Bella Jewel did a magnificent job writing this book. The terrifying emotional journey that Ava had to travel was very real. The heartbreak that Lucas had to experience was devastating. Jackson’s frustration of being a parent and not being able to help his child was heartbreaking. Finding love in an ugly situation was exalting.

Pandemonium was an emotional page turner that kept me captive to the last word.

Pre Order: ITunes


From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.


Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?


Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.


When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.


The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.


The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.


I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.


The worst part? He didn’t come alone.


I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.


The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.

3.5Star jpg

Michel’s Review

Sin & Suffer by Pepper Winters is the explosive conclusion of the Pure Corruption MC series, the sequel to Ruin & Rule.

This dynamic series is a dark, gritty, biker romance with pyschological thriller undertones.  It contains violence, harsh language, criminal activities, and is sexually explicit.  It is not for all readers and is not the typical romance.

The setting is in the swamplands of Florida.  It’s two MC’s at war.  Both are vying for power and pure corruption.  But… it’s more than two clubs vying for power.  It is an ongoing battle between father and son, on opposite sides of the battlefield.  One is pure evil and the other is pure heart.  Sin & Suffer is the final confrontation that could once again cost Chloe and Author their happiness and could very well be the end of their lives.  Only the strongest will survive.

Pepper Winters once again delivered an emotional and gritty story that will keep the readers on the edge of their seats.  The conclusion is powerful.  The journey is was brutal.

I am a huge Pepper Winters fan.  I love her style of writing and boldness of writing the dark side of humanity.  Although I enjoyed the Pure Corruption MC series, it was not my favorite works by her.  I found Sin & Suffer to be too repetitive throughout the book.  I found myself skipping over passages to get to the next scene to see what happens next.  Also I found the authenticity of the story was off.  The setting is in Florida but it never felt like the Florida atmosphere.  The descriptions of scenery was off the mark.  Also the choice of words that the characters used throughout both books was not how an American, let alone a biker, would use in conversations or thoughts.  American Bikers ride bikes or cycles, they do not ride motorbikes.  They put gas in their tanks not petrol.  There were so many dialect mishaps that I found myself getting irritated. I was also conflicted with the MC world, it was quite different than most MC worlds.  Add the business tycoon to the mix and it just didn’t quite fit.  I want to escape in a story and I want to become a part of that world while I am reading it.  I want it to feel authentic.  I just could not completely connect with this series.

Overall, Sin & Suffer is a very good book.  The Pure Corruption series is very good and I would  recommend it other readers.

Enter to Win a Print Bundle of 
Rhymes with Love Series Books 1-4


Rhymes With Love #5
Elizabeth Boyle
Releasing on January 26, 2016



In the fifth novel of the captivating Rhymes with Love
series from New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Boyle, a young woman’s
hopes of a match encounter a wickedly handsome complication…
Lavinia Tempest has been eagerly anticipating a
spectacular Season. But one disastrous pile-up on the Almack’s dance floor
derails all her plans. Add to that, the very stunning revelations about her
mother’s scandalous past have become the ton’s latest on dits. Lavinia’s future
has gone from shining bright to blackest night in one misstep.
Alaster “Tuck” Rowland admits he’s partly to blame for
Lavinia’s disastrous debut. But it’s not guilt that compels him to restore her
reputation. Rather, he’s placed a wager that he can make Lavinia into of the
most sought-after ladies in London. Who better than an unrepentant rake to set
Society astir?
Tuck’s motives are hardly noble. But in teaching the
lovely Lavinia how to win any man she wants, he suddenly finds himself tangled
in the last place he ever imagined: in love.

“Come now, Miss Tempest, my uncle expects me to dance with one of you,” he said as he came wavering up to her. “You cannot stand here all night.”

She looked around for her sister, Lady Aveley. Anyone. “I-I-I, oh dear. Mr. Rowland, I don’t believe—” she stammered out, even as Mr. Rowland took her hand, his strong, sure fingers lacing around hers.

No man had ever just come up and claimed her before for the simple reason that Kempton was a small village, and everyone knew (thanks in no small part to Mrs. Bagley-Butterton) that dancing with Lavinia was akin to asking to have your toes trimmed—or those of your neighbors—or to have something valuable broken.

Or a section of your house scorched.

Mr. Rowland, completely unaware of the mortal danger into which he was placing himself and a good portion of London society, just caught hold of her hand and tugged her out onto the floor, utterly and completely deaf to her protests.

“No, please, sir, I don’t think this is wise,” she told him. And she meant it. This was a very bad notion.

But unfortunately, her protests had no effect on Mr. Rowland, horrible scoundrel that he was …

Has that been mentioned as yet? That Mr. Alaster Rowland, the presumptive heir to his uncle’s barony, is the worst sort of knave? It should be. And often.

He was also the most handsome devil Lavinia Tempest had ever met. Or had held her hand. Or smiled down at her with a wicked light in his eyes.

Lavinia had never seen brown eyes hold that sort of promise, the kind that sent a shiver of something so delicious, so dangerous, down her spine that she made a note right there and then to add a new rule to her list at her first opportunity:

No. 83. A proper gentleman should not make one’s insides get so very warm.

In truth, as Mr. Alaster Rowland slid his hand around her waist, took her other hand in his, something altogether improper happened to Lavinia.

It had to be improper, for it certainly wasn’t proper.

“Mr. Rowland, I cannot,” she protested one last time, when to her horror, the band struck up a cotillion.

A cotillion? The last time she’d tried to dance a cotillion, Lady Essex’s house, Foxgrove, had caught fire.

Yet here was Mr. Rowland, laughing and leaning closer. “But of course you can,” he whispered in her ear, his breath warm against her skin.

It was as if he had brushed his fingers there —right against the curve of her neck. It was so intimate, so promising a gesture, that it left Lavinia in a blinding daze.

Yet Lavinia, the girl who had made a study of all things proper, knew exactly how to behave when all was proceeding at a proper pace, but right now she was being steered down a path she’d never taken before and assailed by a river of improper desires.

At least she assumed they were desires, for it was a dangerous, heady sort of warmth spreading through her limbs.

That, and something else happened. Her feet—which before had always seemed two sizes too big—untangled. It was as if the warmth of Mr. Rowland’s touch, his teasing glance, his confidence in her, awakened a very graceful part of her.

Lavinia straightened, head held just so, and a long-forgotten admonishment from the dancing master Lady Hathaway had hired years ago, tripped through her thoughts.

Dancing is all about elegance.

And right there and then, Lavinia felt elegant. Not because her gown was proper. Or that she was standing on the dance floor of Almack’s (though that certainly helped) but because the man gazing down at her held her, not at arm’s length and in obvious fear, but with all the proper care and respect of a gentleman.

Moments later, Lavinia Tempest found herself dancing.

Perfectly. Like a lady. Mr. Rowland moved, as did everyone else, and Lavinia moved as well.

And in the right direction.

Blog Tour + Review: Dazzled by Jane Harvey-Berrick



By Jane Harvey- Berrick

Buy: Amazon 

Amazon UK  / Amazon CA


Miles Stephens is a young actor from London. Out of work, unemployable, and fired from his last job, he unexpectedly gets the chance to star in a big-time Hollywood movie.

The film is a great success, propelling him to worldwide fame – but when the dream doesn’t match the reality, he turns to Clare, lifelong friend and girl next door.

Clare knows two important facts: when you break chocolate, the calories fall out; and that she’s totally in love with clueless Miles.

* * * * *
with scenes only suitable for 18+

Teaser, best friend



Mum and Dad were out at Aunt Paula’s party, so I had the house to myself.

I was glad of that, because I wanted to wallow. Preferably with chocolate. I got lucky when I found a Black Forest gateau that Mum had bought to celebrate with Prue, and proceeded to stuff my face. I ate well over half of it. A generous half. The kind of half that a miserable sod might call three-quarters. Whatever. I felt full and nauseous.

All I needed now was a sappy love story on the TV, and I was all set for a classic wallow in the time honored tradition.

The evening had been a complete and utter nightmare. From the moment Lilia had arrived, everything had gone wrong. And then she’d dragged him off to her lair, and when he came out again his shirt and tie were undone, and he had lipstick on his cheek. It was soooo obvious what they’d been doing. Especially when she followed him out, a smug smile pasted across her ugly trout pout.

She’d told me she’d get him back—it looked as though she was right. I really didn’t think he would have succumbed that quickly. I hated being proved wrong.

So I was as irritated as all hell when some bastard rang the bell and knocked on the door.

The last person I expected to see was Miles waiting on the other side, looking ridiculously beautiful and debonair in his tailor-made tux.

I, on the other hand, had changed into sweatpants and an old t-shirt. One of his. Oh, and I had crumbs down my cleavage.

The cold air rushed in as I stood in the hallway, my mouth open more widely than the front door.

“You left,” he said.

“You were busy.”

He frowned. “Can I come in?”

“If you want.”

I let the door hang open, then turned my back and headed into the warmth of the cozy living room.

I heard him close the front door and follow me inside. It had been a long time since we’d been in this house together.

He stood awkwardly while I gestured for him to come in, my eyes fixed on the TV.

After a moment’s hesitation, he pushed the living room door shut and hovered near one of the armchairs. We were alone together at last.

“I missed you,” he said, softly.

And I didn’t know if he meant tonight, or the last few days.

I folded my arms tightly in front of me and tried to smile.

“Yeah, me, too.”

He rubbed his head as if it ached, and took a step toward me.

I backed away, knowing that I’d crumble if I let him touch me. And I couldn’t go back to living like that.

He looked hurt and bewildered as I moved to the other side of the room, and slumped down onto the couch.

“You didn’t wear your bracelet,” he said, quietly.


The pain in his voice tore my eyes away from the TV screen that I was pretending to watch.

“The bracelet I gave you—you’re not wearing it.”


I couldn’t meet his eyes.

“Clare, I know I’ve been an idiot…”

“Yeah, you have. But that’s okay, I’m used to it.”

I was letting him off the hook, and he knew it. He gave a small smile.

“Around you I just seem to open my mouth to change feet,” he agreed.

There was an awkward silence. We’d never been uncomfortable sharing the same space, but everything had changed.

“So,” he said, shoving his hands in his pockets, “how’ve you been?”

“Bloody hell, Miles! You make it sound like you haven’t seen me for a year. I saw you a couple of hours ago.”

“Feels longer.”


When I didn’t respond, he sighed heavily and went to lean against the wall by the window, staring at the wintry street outside.

I fiddled nervously with the hem of my … his … my t-shirt.

I didn’t want him here.

Except I did. And I didn’t.

“Why did you leave like that?” he said, his voice soft and a little husky.

So fucking clueless!

I felt a spike of anger. “You don’t get it, do you?”

He shrugged helplessly.

“No, I don’t. Not really.”

In that moment, I realized we were never going to square this circle. There was no point prolonging the agony.

“Well, it doesn’t matter anyway. I just … I think you should go now.”

I hated saying the words and Miles looked stunned, but a tiny germ of self-preservation was forcing its way to the surface.

“What? Now? But…” his words ended abruptly, and he rubbed the back of his neck in a familiar gesture of frustration. “Please, Clare, I’m trying here.”

I held back a sigh.

“I know. It’s just … better if you go.”

His expression morphed into one of anger.

“Why did you even bother coming tonight if you don’t want to talk to me?”

Fury, long held back, flared inside me, and I pointed an accusing finger at him.


4 Star

Michel’s Review

Dazzled by Jane Harvey- Berrick is a charming friends to lovers and Hollywood romance.  I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It was not the standard Hollywood type romance because this book starts at the beginning of stardom and how difficult the climb to the top is.

Miles and Clare have been friends all of their lives.  They are completely different types of personalities.  The yin and yang to one another.  When Miles has a downfall in the London Theater scene it looks like his acting career is at an end.  As the old saying goes, when one door closes another one opens, applies to Miles acting career.  He is offered to read for a part in an upcoming Hollywood teen movie.

Miles lands the part and has to leave London and Clare behind.  He’s sucked into the Hollywood world and is trying not to drown in a world of sharks.  When he brings Clare across the pond to help him maneuver his way in the new world, the dynamics of their relationship begins to change.  When Miles finally opens his eyes and sees Clare as a woman rather than his best bud, it may be too late.

Clare has finally taken her blinders off where Miles is concerned.  Going to Hollywood as his assistant was a huge mistake.  It’s not her world.  Miles is no longer her Miles.  She has finally realized it’s time to wrap it up and head back to London to build her own life.

It takes a huge Hollywood scandal and two meddling mothers to bring these two back where they belong.

I thoroughly enjoyed Dazzled.  It was a fun, witty, and sexy Hollywood romance.  I loved the English charm and dry humor that was prevalent throughout the book.

Jane Harvey-Berrick always delivers a good romance book.

Damon Atwood was Hollywood’s golden boy. Having won an Oscar at the tender age of thirteen, he had the life many could only dream about. But his success came at a price, and after a short but fruitful film career, he chose to live a life of obscurity on a remote Scottish island. Thirteen years later he’s finally ready to make his return, starting with a lead role in a musical on London’s West End.

As a choreographer’s assistant, Rose Taylor has always faded into the background. She watches shows come to life from the side lines, but has never craved the attention of stardom. When rumours begin circulating of Damon’s involvement in her latest gig, she doesn’t predict how she will be thrust into the limelight, nor how the mysterious and strangely introverted man will need her to teach him how to be a star again.

Rose knows that show crushes don’t last. Actors fall for each other during the intensity of a production, often losing themselves in their roles. These kinds of affairs burn bright and then they fade. The question is, should Rose let herself shine with Damon, or guard her heart from being broken after the final curtain call?

Release Date: May 16, 2016

Excerpt Reveal: Bait & Switch by Kendall Ryan



Bait & Switch ebook cover Kendall Ryan

Love is a trap, a trick only other people fall for. Former Navy SEAL Nolan has no such illusions. The only things real in his life are his beloved bulldog and the two women in his life. One is soft and innocent, someone he could build a real future with. But the other is dark and gives him all of the wicked things he craves behind closed doors. What starts out as casual quickly becomes complicated. Can he walk away from a sure thing for something that’s foreign territory?

Nolan thinks we met by chance. We didn’t. I sought him out, seduced him, and in return got the sanctuary I needed to survive. But now, impossibly, I’ve fallen in love with him. I don’t care that he has another lover, because when he finds out who I am, it’s going to ruin any chance I ever had with him anyway. She’s the least of my worries.

Bait & Switch is Book 1 in the new contemporary romance series Alphas Undone, which will each feature a new couple.This is a standalone full-length novel. It does not contain cheating.

She hooked one leg over mine, and I rocked my hips into her pelvis to let her feel what she’d done to me. Lacey groaned. “I take it you liked the massage.”

“What gave me away?” I asked, breathing hard against her neck.

“A certain wayward southern appendage.” She ground into me again, her hips moving against mine.

I almost chuckled. Almost called her out for being too prissy to say the word cock . . . until her hand slid down to my jeans to unbutton me.

“Maybe he needs some attention too,” she rasped against my throat.

I hadn’t come here for this and wouldn’t have pressed her, but I also wasn’t going to turn her away. We would take things at whatever pace she wanted.

Tugging down the zipper to her shorts, I was desperate to touch her and bring her pleasure. I pushed my hand inside her shorts, fumbling when she reached down to grip my denim-covered erection. Christ.

My fingers soon found what they were looking for. She gasped as I rubbed in slow circles through her panties. Even with the cotton barrier, I could feel the firm bud of her swollen clit. I sucked in a breath when she tightened her fist, kneading my hard cock.

“Together,” was all she said. But I understood. Only a little impatiently, I waited until she had unzipped my jeans before slipping my fingers under her panties.

I gave a soft groan at the feel of her hot, slick folds. “God, baby, you’re so wet already.”

“All for you,” she murmured huskily. “Touch me, please.”

I obeyed in a heartbeat, echoing her moan when she pulled my cock free and started stroking up and down with whisper-soft strokes.
