WW You FOR WEB.jpg

When I was fifteen, a single bullet changed my life. I spent the next decade trying to outrun the devastation of my past, building an empire that would shield me from whatever life could throw at me.

But all the money in the world couldn’t help me when I found a screaming newborn abandoned on my doorstep.

I’d never wanted to be a father. Passing the sludge that ran through my veins down to an innocent child seemed like a tragedy. But there she was—pink cheeks, red hair, and mine.

Somehow, against all logic, that little girl became the best thing that ever happened to me. It was impossible to stay lost in the past when I was the only one who could protect her future.

Which is exactly why, when her mother came back four years later, I was ready for battle.

If only I could stop myself from falling in love with her during the war.

Every little girl dreams of the fairytale. The one where the white knight rushes in to save her from the clutches of evil. They fall in love, have babies, and live happily ever after.

By that definition, my life should have been a fairytale too.

When I was eight years old, Caven Hunt saved me from the worst kind of evil to walk the Earth. It didn’t matter that I was a kid. I fell in love with him all the same.

But that was where my fairytale ended.

Years later, a one-night stand during the darkest time imaginable gave us a little girl. It was nothing compared to the pitch black that consumed me when I was forced to leave her with Caven for good.

At the end of every fairytale, the happily-ever-after is the one thing that remains consistent. It wasn’t going to be mine, but there hadn’t been a night that passed where I hadn’t prayed that it would be hers.

I owed Caven my life.

However, I owed that innocent child more.

And that included ripping the heart from my chest and facing her father again.

Michel’s Review

Aly Martinez has delivered another page turner duet that has kept the readers burning up the pages. Not only does Aly deliver a steamy romance but also centers her story around the family unit. She also adds a heaping dose of romantic suspense which makes her stories stand out in the contemporary romance genre. I thoroughly enjoyed The Regret Duet and could not put either volume down.

Written With You was more than two people coming together and making their family work. There were earth shattering revelations on both sides of their families. The horrific incident they shared as children left more scares below the surface and threaten their lives once again. This time they have a child who is depending on them. She is more important than hanging onto the past and the secrets inside their baggage.

I have to say I was surprised at the direction this story took. I saw the romance coming, I figured out some of the secrets, but the big revelation and climax was a jaw dropper.

Aly Martinez is a multi-talented writer who always delivers a fantastic story.

I highly recommend the Regret Duet!

Release Blitz and 5 Star Review: Storm And Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout – The Harbinger Series – Book One

Storm And Fury

By Jennifer L. Armentrout

The Hairbingers Series – Book One

Genre: Paranormal Young Adult

Buy: Amazon

goodreadstab

Blurb:

Enter a world of gargoyle protectors, rising demons and one girl with an explosive secret.

Eighteen-year-old Trinity Marrow may be going blind, but she can see and communicate with ghosts and spirits. Her unique gift is part of a secret so dangerous that she’s been in hiding for years in an isolated compound fiercely guarded by Wardens—gargoyle shape-shifters who protect humankind from demons. If the demons discover the truth about Trinity, they’ll devour her, flesh and bone, to enhance their own powers.

When Wardens from another clan arrive with disturbing reports that something out there is killing both demons and Wardens, Trinity’s safe world implodes. Not the least because one of the outsiders is the most annoying and fascinating person she’s ever met. Zayne has secrets of his own that will upend her world yet again—but working together becomes imperative once demons breach the compound and Trinity’s secret comes to light. To save her family and maybe the world, she’ll have to put her trust in Zayne. But all bets are off as a supernatural war is unleashed…

Michel’s Review

Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout is the first book in her new Harbinger Series, a spinoff of the paranormal young adult Dark Elements Series. If you are looking for an action packed paranormal world filled with demons, angels, gargoyles, witches, and ghosts, the Harbinger series will deliver. Jennifer L. Armentrout has created an exciting world filled with unique characters, witty dialogue, sexy banter, emotionally charged situations that keeps the reader fully engaged to the very end and wanting more.

The Wardens ( Gargoyles) and others must protect the world from the demons who are trying to destroy the world.

Zayne, a Gargoyle protector, is tasked to protect Trinity, a child of mixed race that possesses special skills. Her skills make her a target for the demons. Protecting Trinity is a challenging task because she is not the easiest being to deal with. Zayne has the patience to deal with Trinity and the badies trying to get her.

What happens throughout this story will keep the readers glued to the pages. There are several supporting characters screaming for their own books. Thank goodness more books are coming!

It is not necessary to read the Dark Elements series in order to engage in the new Hairbinger series. The Hairbinger series can stand on it’s own. I highly recommend Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout

5 Star Review… The Fallen: Genesis by Tillie Cole – A Deadly Virtues Prequel Novella

44591368

The Fallen: Genesis by Tillie Cole

A Deadly Virtues Prequel Novella

By Tillie Cole

Goodreads:

***

Blurb:IN THE BEGINNING…

They told them they were evil.
They told them they were possessed by demons.
They told them that darkness ran in their veins.

Holy Innocents Home for Children is a haven for orphaned boys who have nothing and no one. The priests watch over them, educate them, raise them in the family of the church.

Except for some.

Seven of the orphans are no ordinary boys. They attract the attention of the priests for their acts of violence, of bloodlust. The priests realize these boys are drawn to the darkness.

And the priests are no ordinary priests. They are the Brethren, a secret sect who believe themselves on a divine mission to seek out evil in the boys in their care. Seek it out, and then drive it out.

The seven have fallen from God’s grace. And the Brethren will cleanse their blackened souls…

Dark Contemporary Romance novella. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and topics some may find triggering. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

***

5Star

Michel’s Review

 

The Fallen: Genesis by Tillie Cole is the introduction to her new upcoming series, Deadly Virtues. This new series is unlike any of the other series Tillie has written but distinctly has her dramatic flare that captures the reader’s complete attention.

The church doesn’t always guide souls to forgiveness and redemption. It doesn’t always purge the evil from one’s soul. Sometimes it feeds the evil beyond redemption. Say your prayers… the Fallen are among us and their twisted deprived souls are hungry. It’s time to feed their needs.

The Deadly Virtues series by Tillie Cole is unleashing! Say your prayers!

Excerpt:

Life had never been easy for me. Chaos had been following me like a dark cloud, looming and hovering, casting its shadow far and wide despite how bright the path in front of me should have appeared. After growing up the way I had, where happiness had been more of a privilege than a choice, I knew better than to believe that that moment would be anything other than fleeting.

And one second later, the universe proved me right.

I opened the door to see who had rung the bell—a cursory check revealed an empty hallway.

And that’s when I heard it: the sound that changed not only my entire life in the present, but my life for all future days to come.

At first, it was just a grunt, but as if that baby could feel my gaze, the minute my eyes made contact, it let out a sharp cry.

Confusion hit me like a lightning bolt, sending me back a step. I used the door frame for balance as I took in the yellow blanket with a hole only big enough to reveal a pale-pink face.

“What the fuck?” I breathed. Glancing around the hall, I waited for someone to jump out and start laughing. When no one spoke up to issue a punchline, I took a step closer and repeated, “What the fuck?”

I was utterly unable to process the absurdity in front of me.

Of course, I knew the facts.

It was a baby.

On my doorstep.

Alone.

But the why in that equation was glaringly absent.

“Uhhh,” Ian drawled, peering over my shoulder. “Why is there a kid at your door?”

“I have no idea,” I replied, staring down at the squirming and now-screaming bundle. “It was just there when I opened the door.”

Ian shoved me to the side so he could stand beside me. “You’re shitting me, right?”

“Does it look like I’m shitting you?”

He looked from me to the baby, then back again. “How did it get there?”

We were two incredibly smart men who had created a technology empire out of nothing. But, clearly, a baby was too big for either of us to wrap our minds around.

I swept an arm out and pointed to the kid. “I have no clue, but I’m assuming it didn’t catch a cab.”

A light of understanding hit his eyes. He moved first, stepping over the crying baby and hurrying down the hall, searching around the corner near the elevator before returning alone.

The party continued behind me, but even with the door open, the loud chatter was no match for the ear-piecing cries happening in that hallway.

Veronica suddenly appeared beside me, her body going solid as she stammered out. “Is that…a baby?”

“Back up,” I urged, throwing my arm out to block her path as though the infant were going to suddenly morph into a rabid animal. And let’s be honest, I knew nothing about babies. Anything was possible.

Ian dropped to his knees, scooping up the wailing child. Meanwhile, I stood there like a gawking idiot, paralyzed by a weight I didn’t yet understand.

“Call the pol—” He stopped abruptly and reached into the top of the child’s blanket. “Oh shit,” he whispered, his wide, panic-filled eyes flashing to mine.

“What?” I asked, stepping toward him to get a better look at the kid. Only it wasn’t that tiny baby cradled in his arms that made my heart stop and bile rise in my throat.

There, in my best friend’s hand, was a folded piece of notebook paper that had been tucked into the child’s blanket. From the looks of it, the paper was unremarkable in every sense of the word. Blue lines, white spaces, hanging remnants from where it had been haphazardly ripped from a spiral bound notebook. Even the crease was crooked. But it was my name scrawled on the outside in messy, black ink that made it the most remarkable paper in existence.

I snatched it from his hand and, with blood roaring in my ears, opened it.

Caven,

I’m sorry. I never meant for this to happen. This is our daughter Keira. I’ll love her forever. Take care of her the way I can’t.

Written with regret,

Hadley

The hall began to spin, my head feeling like every ounce of blood had been drained from my body. The thundering in my ears faded and the loud chatter of my guests, who were suddenly aware that something was happening at the door, roared to life.

And then the chaos finally found me all over again—the past playing out in my head like my life flashing before my eyes.

I sucked in a deep breath and looked at the baby in his arms. The blanket had fallen off its head just enough to reveal a patch of fine hairs, more orange than its mother’s red.

“Call the police,” I declared, turning on a toe and walking back into my apartment, leaving Ian standing in the hall with Hadley’s child.

Shoving through the crowd of concerned onlookers, I headed straight to the bottles of liquor lining the counter. I didn’t bother with ice or even a glass. I threw back that bottle of vodka, hoping like hell the burn of the alcohol could numb the panic coursing through my veins.

Through it all, that baby never stopped crying.

Pre-order the stunning conclusion, Written With You, today!

Michel’s Review

Aly Martinez is the queen of cliffhangers. In her latest release Written In Regret, book one of the Regret Duet, she has once again floored her readers with a mind blowing cliffhanger. The cliffhanger leaves her readers wanting the final book yesterday! Readers won’t have to wait long for the final book, Written With You.

Hadley and Caven share more than a horrific past from their youth, they also share a precious child from a disastrous one night stand. Hadley not only left with Caven’s wallet and laptop, she also left with his DNA. Nine months later she is returning Caven’s precious DNA on his doorstep.  Rather than celebrating his six hundred million fortune he is gifted with a new born baby girl. His baby. He is forced become a father rather than a playboy millionaire conquering the world. Who knew fatherhood would become his most successful and rewarding endeavor?

Four years later Hadley’s back and she wants her baby. Caven is not going to let Hadley steal the most precious thing in his life, his daughter. He’s not even willing to share her for a few moments. The only problem is the DNA test proves she is her mother and she has a very good lawyer. Caven is willing to sacrifice his millions to keep his daughter. The law says he must compromise, his heart says he needs to hold her tight, his head says to be patient and diligent. He has no choice, Hadley is back in their lives and it looks like it is permanent.

The one thing Caven has learned is people are not always what they appear to be on the surface. Hadley is not the same woman from four years ago. He also knows he is responsible for the demons that caused Hadley to run in the first place. It’s his fault that she was so broken. Where has she been for the past four years? What else is she hiding?

Hadley is having to earn Caven’s trust and respect. She wants more than a shared past and limited moments with her daughter. She wants both their love. She still has secrets that could destroy everything and Caven’s older brother ,who is a cop. is figuring it out.

CLIFFHANGER!

Aly Martinez is the queen of delivering emotional cliffhangers. The Regret duet is going to be a page turner that keeps the readers captivated.

Written In Regret by Aly Martinez is pure gold!

Release Blitz + 5 Star Review: The Lying Hours by Sara Ney – How To Date A Douchebag Series – Book 5

 

 

The Lying Hours
How To Date A Douchebag Series – Book 5
By Sara Ney
Buy
****

 

ABRAHAM
DAVIS—Honest Abe to his friends—IS IN OVER HIS HEAD…
He’s a fixer
and a do good-er. The all-knowing, resident “grandfather” on the
wrestling team who everyone relies on to fix their problems. His teammates go
to him for everything; advice, homework, or when they need a sober driver at
three in the morning–whether he likes it or not.
Abe’s
current mission is easy: mend his roommates broken heart by helping him find a
girlfriend on the LoveU app–without getting caught in the lie…
SKYLAR
GABRIEL. IS. OVER. IT.
Over her bad
grades. Over her meddling older brother and his two best friends. And over
dating douchebags. What she wants to know is: where have all the nice guys
gone?
She longs
for a handsome, sweet, and honest guy who can make her laugh. In one last ditch
effort to prove that he exists—Skylar turns to LoveU.
On her worst
day, Skylar has no filter (it’s a miracle she hasn’t been ditched mid-date).
On her best,
she’s as wholesome, and sweet, as pie.
On Thursday?
She matches with Abraham Davis’s roommate.
Skylar
Gabriel is falling for the wrong guy—she just doesn’t realize it yet.
Why?
BECAUSE ABE
DAVIS IS A LIAR.
Michel’s Review
The Lying Hours by Sara Ney is another fantastic addition to her How To Date A Douchebag Series. This rom-com new adult series has become one of my favorites.
*
Unlike Sara’s Douchey heroes in the previous books of this series, her new hero, Abe Davis is not. He’s a good guy that would do anything for his friends and there lies the problem. He has been recruited by his best friend JB (the real douchebag) to find him a new girlfriend/ slash hookup after JB finds himself dumped by his last girlfriend. Abe has joined the school dating app trying to find JB the perfect girlfriend or at least one who likes sex and is not annoying. It’s his job to vet the women before JB dates them. Swiping left is easy, finding the perfect candidate not so much. When Abe finds the perfect match he knows he’s in trouble because he wants her for himself.
*
Skylar is different than most of her friends. She’s not interested in dating or hookups. She’s content to hang with the girls, have fun, and read her books. When her friends convince her to join the dating app she’s a bit leary but does it anyway. Talking to JB is fun, challenging, and she’s enjoying their banter. Meeting JB in person is a different story. He is a completely different guy, one she doesn’t like. He seems like a real douchebag. When she meets his roommate Abe she knows dating JB is all wrong for her. She likes Abe and wants him.
*
Sounds like a modern college coed “Cyrano De Bergerac” romance with a whole lot more snark and fun!
*
I loved The Lying Hours by Sara Ney and can’t wait for the next book after reading the epilogue.
*
I highly recommend The Lying Hours by Sara Ney. It is a laugh out loud romance!

 

Sara Ney is
the USA Today Bestselling Author of the How to Date a Douchebag series, and is
best known for her sexy, laugh-out-loud New Adult romances. Among her favorite
vices, she includes: iced latte’s, historical architecture and well-placed
sarcasm. She lives colorfully, collects vintage books, art, loves flea markets,
and fancies herself British.

Eileen’s twenty-seventh birthday is almost here. But as always she’s an afterthought in her parent’s minds. Her family is too busy planning a shotgun wedding for her older sister to pay attention to her. And now she has to help. It’s just another year where she’s overlooked.

But the best man is smoking hot. He actually notices her, and makes her feel special.

Jason doesn’t believe in commitment, but Eileen intrigues him.

She’s not the kind of girl he usually hooks up with. She doesn’t even fall for his charm.

He’s made it his mission to convince her that he’s not the shallow man she thinks he is.

But can Jason give up his playboy lifestyle to become the man Eileen needs?

Michel’s Review

Claudia Burgoa has become one of my favorite authors. She is one of those authors who has the ability to blend several different romance genres (tropes) and create an emotional story which keeps the readers glued to the pages. In her latest release, THE HE HAPPENED, she not only delivered an excellent, fun romance but also created characters that jump off the pages.

*

Eileen and Jason somehow get sucked into planning a wedding for her sister and his cousin. Both of these people are ungrateful, selfish, clueless,and broke. Neither Eileen or Jason has time nor the desire to plan a wedding. It’s bad enough they are not only expected to plan the wedding, they are also expected to pay for it. What starts out as a dreadful duty turns into something else altogether. The crazy adventures of wedding planning lead to an unusual friendship and undeniable romance.

*

Between Eileen’s ungrateful family and Jason’s reservations about love after being jilted at the alter, they both persevered. They found what they both needed. They found each other.

*

I loved the banter between Eileen and Jason. They both were witty individuals. Eileen had middle child syndrome and tended to let her family walk all over her. When she finally stood up to her family, I was jumping out of my seat with joy. When Jason realized he deserved real love and was ready to accept it, my heart melted . Never were two people more suited and perfect for each other.

*

I highly recommend reading Then He Happened by Claudia Burgoa. It is a guaranteed delightful reading experience.
