Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren

Chloe is a sassy little thing, "I'm sorry, Mr. Ryan," I said with just a hint of bite. "I understand the burden I placed on you by making you manage a fax machine and pick up a telephone. As I mentioned, it won't happen again." She has balls, "some ba**** tore my blouse." She shrugged her shoulders and then leaned her face closer to me and whispered, "And my panties." Bennett he's just an a** but underneath you can tell Chloe is getting to him, "well, just to replace the things that I -" he stopped, and possibly rethinking his response. "The things that have been damaged. If you don't want it, don't effing use it." He's very possessive, "you see, he wants something that's mine, and he can't have it." But when Bennett and Chloe are together, together, they're good, like I mean real good, "eff yes, my bed. My bed is huge, with a headboard I can tie you up to and spank you silly for being ridiculous." I liked this book loads and I'm ready for the second book.

Deidre's Death Lizzy Ford

I was all like 'YAY I get to see how Gabe's story ends,' when Heather got to the end of the bookie a little surprise was waiting for her, you guessed it guys a damn cliffhanger. Let's just say Heather is not impressed with Ms. Elizabeth right at this particular moment as I WANTED AN ENDING!! I liked the story, and I missed my Gabe so SO much, "don't take this the wrong way," he started, studying her. "Who the eff are you?" (so bada** I know) He's just all hot and mhmm when he's pi**** off, "my mate trusts the Dark One over me to help her. It's a s***ty way to start things off." I'd say! Rhyn it is always good to see his sexiness anywhere, "go get your woman. I'll see you at the castle." So bossy! I'm not sure if I should feel sorry for the Deidre that's trying to win Gabe over or laugh in her face (not sure I have any remorse right now) "I'm not sure I can keep up with her. She tried on every piece of clothing today and took five baths to test the different soaps. She discovered the toaster this afternoon. She used it to warm up her socks. Nearly caused a fire." So needless to say I will probably NOT kill Lizzy as I kind of need her alive to write the next book so I see how s*** goes down. BUT I'm still mad at you Lizzy! 

Darkyn's Mate by Lizzy Ford

Honestly I love all of Lizzy Izzy's books but never have I enjoyed one more (other than Rhyn) than this one (probably because Darkyn reminds me of Rhyn) "Welcome to your new home, love" Why yes Darkyn thank you for that welcome that just made me wet my panties. He's also very imaginative (if you get my meaning ladies (*winks*)) "touch me, tast me, scratch me, bite me," he whispered. "You can't be too rough for me." He's also one whose presence demands the room, "I'll give you the terms this time. You can gauge the risk." He chuckled, a sinister sound. "you can eff me here, now, the way mates should. Or, when you lose our deal, you can eff the Dark One." He's also very accommodating with his woman, "you're the mate of the Dark One. You can do whatever the eff you want." Doesn't sound like a prison does it ladies? Rhyn it wouldn't be a story without his bada** showing up, "you s***ting me?" he returned. "You come back a demon and want to know what's wrong?" I mean it's really good to see him ladies, "one, he's letting me know he's the Dark One. I'm assuming the transition happened recently. We didn't know. Two, this is a personal eff-you, addressed to me from the Dark One. Three," he paused, studying her. "You. His mate. His human, blood bound mate." I'm really hoping the next book in the series goes back and forth between Darkyn's point of view and Gabe's. In all honesty I don't think Darkyn is a bad person/demon/deity/type thing he's just misunderstood and it takes a certain someone special to drag out some of the goodness in him. 

Happenstance by MJ Abraham

Right off the bat you can tell Victoria is a good, kind, caring person, "let's get you fixed up, little guy." I can feel his heartbeat under my palm. I have the urge to kiss him on the top of his head, but I resist. I know he's probably skeptical of me, and I can't blame him." And well we find out that Jared that sexy beast he is is ALL man, "it's not that I wouldn't want to stare at her t*ts, but that would be frowned upon by my clients and I don't need that s***. I did get to check out her a** though when she walked away. Damn, that was something else." He's a man that you don't mess around with, "I said, 'you're not paying." He also doesn't share certain things, "only when it comes to my peanut M&M's." His fingers twirl a piece of my hair. "And women, I definitely don't share those." He worries about his woman, and I must say I like that in a man, "I'm sorry. I didn't think you'd jump out of your skin! Are you always this nervous?" He narrows his eyes. "Is this place not safe enough?" I liked this book and I want more from this author!

BLOG TOUR REVIEW: Sweet Contradiction by Peggy Martinez

Beth's dad is just freakin' cuckoo dang no wonder Beth was weird, "because the outward adorning of a woman's body is sinful. Because the obtaining earthly possessions is ungodly. And sinfulness and ungodliness are what the devil uses to pave the road to Hell."  What in the HELL are these people teaching their child! Beth I love her when she's all woman, she's saucy, "looks like your muscles have gotten even bigger, but I wonder if that has played a role in you diminishing brain cells." Oh my Matthew you little charmer you, "I don't mind so much, especially if the damsels were guaranteed to look as pretty as you." Oh, my word, Matthew you sex on two legs guy you, "I want to taste your lips again, but next time I want to take my time. I want you under me so I can feel your entire body quivering beneath me when I make love to you." His voice lowered and his words did funny things to my body. "But, having a quick, meaningless fling is not one of them." He's also a jokester and I love that, "so, you're scared then? You wearing your granny panties today and don't want me seeing them?" Matt good lord I just love that man, "you won't frighten me away, baby. I'm not looking for someone who looks a certain way, lives a certain way, or even believes a certain way. I'm looking for the person who drives me so completely insane that I feel like a hole has been ripped out of my chest when we're apart." Oh good lord, I REALLY love that man stands up for beth, "don't speak to her like that. She's no who** and I'll not have any man saying she is. I don't care who you are." Beth's dad needs a good swift kick in the nuts, "he's there for you now when you allowing him between your legs, but will he be there if he puts a bas**** in you? Or will he move on to another who**?" I really liked this book and I'm kinda hoping Ms. Peggy writes Jenn and Hunter's story I would love to read about them!

Him by Carey Heywood

I liked this story, Sarah is quite the character, "you know that's not why. It's not that he flossed. I like that he flossed. It's that he had to tell me every time he was going to floss. Why? Why did her do that? Was he trying to prove something? Hey, look at me." I wave my hands in the air. "I'm going to floss now!" Will he's a bossy thing, "Sarah." His blue eyes study me. "Don't be silly. I'm not letting you get a cab." He's demanding, "everything." He's moved his hands up to hold my biceps. "I want everything from you." When they're together sparks sure do fly: 
                     "Well hello," I breathe as his lips move to my neck.
                     "Hey," he chuckles, pulling my dress up.
                     "I have a bed, you know."
                     "Here's good," he says, unbuttoning his shorts.
I like when first loves come back to each other. 

Breathless by Eve Carter

Jesse's brother is kind of an a**, "you're effing drunk, Jesse. You effed up again and I'm sick and tired of saving your sorry a**. You need to get your s*** in one bag, dude. Seriously, I can't always be there for you. You're lucky that Manny called me earlier and told me you were in trouble. Otherwise, I would have picked you up in pieces from that ditch over there tomorrow. You're a effing embarrassment to me and my job." Harsh much? Jesse has a sarcastic bone in him, "no. Are you whack? My idea of weight lifting is lifting beer bottles to my lips." He's also a total flirt ladies, "your hands? They don't offend me. What if I want your hands on me?" He's also relentless, "Niki. Before we go back let me just tell you, I'm not stopping until you're mine. You didn't resist the kiss just now. You didn't tell me to leave you alone, so be prepared to be stalked." It's always good to have a warning. His thoughts are just so entertaining as well, "I could take it slow, if she wanted. It would be hard, I mean difficult. Hard was what happened in my damn pants every time I kissed her." So there was a cliffhanger just not a big one to have me make a big deal out of it, I'm so ready 

Wanted by Amanda Lance

Oh my, Charlie he has that you can tell right off the bad he's a fierce fellow, "ain't nobody gonna hurt you." Addie has balls and you have to give her props for having them in this kind of situation, "she's dead - but thanks for bringing up happy memories." Charlie really does have a heart even though he won't admit it, "when I get back, you can just hang out. Without any of this stuff." He gestured to the bungees, but refused to make eye contact with me." I liked this book there was action, romance, and a kicka** hero and heroine. 

Pole Dance by J.A Hornbuckle

Everyone knows I love a good bada** alpha male character and boy did this book have one. Jake he's every woman's wet dream, let's just be honest, "not gonna say it again. Get your stuff, Darlin' and let's go." He also speaks his mind, "want you, Caitlin. Want to be inside you. Can't think, Darlin' 'cept 'bout buryin' myself in your hot, wetness." See ladies every woman's wet dreams (winks). He's not very fond of Caitlin's bed either, "Darlin'? Need room to play with your while we're naked. Important to me, yeah? So next time, we're at my place." It's funny to get inside Jake's mind to see his reactions to when Caitlin is mad, "his girl was p***ed and had no qualms at him know it." He's not one to repeat himself either, "don't like saying things twice, Darlin'," I heard Jake's impatient rumble in my hair. "Get your s*** and let's go to my place." He loves his girl and doesn't want to lose her, "don't wanna lose my girl over stupid s***, especially not stupid s*** I've done, yeah?" The first time I read the book I liked it the second time I read it I loved it. 

Everybody Falls by J.A. Hornbuckle

This book was a good read, funny, charming, witty, and then there was Jax, "his wood was another sign of progress; another sign that he and his body were waking up." Jax I really did like him, he's never been in certain situations and when things hit him they hit him hard, "God, she was a goddess and he was stuck like a goddamn statue, unsure of what to do, what to day." He's even considerate, "not this way, baby, okay?" he murmured. "I want you. But, not in the back of a truck by the side of the road." Lacey and Jax have great chemistry they're so playful, "uhm, didn't you tell me that your Grams said you followed directions pretty good?" she asked. "So, you learned that particular skill, your whole tongue thingie from porn movies?" He's also very passionate and the things he says can get your blood roaring, "so, are we done talking, Lace?" he growled. "Because I want to use my mouth but I can't taste the secret honey of my favorite baker and talk at the same time." Well worth the read ladies!

Wolf Fever by Milly Taiden

Hot, hot, hot is what this bookie is! and Ryder sweet baby jesus he can charm the pants of any woman, "Ryder's animal growled, in clear disagreement with her request. He couldn't kill her, not when he wanted to taste her, to hold her, to mate her." He's also considerate, "you smell so good and taste effing delicious. It's hard for me to control the aggressive side. The wolf." His gaze clashed with hers. "I want you, but not until you're sure." And ladies this bada** is ALL alpha, "I am the alpha here, and I protect what's mine." You can totally protect me any day. Milly's wolves are wild, erotic and great fun to read about! 

Never Can Tell by C.M. Stunich

I'm so glad C.M. decided to do a spin-off series because I was missing my Ty, "I'm checking out his chest. Sweat glistens on the sharply defined muscles there, promising me that despite Ty's new status as daddy, he's still hot as s***." Of course he would be he didn't go through body changes lol. Ty is still his ever charming self, "because I'm a fox, baby." Never and Ty appreciate those few moments when a baby isn't awake, "that God, the man has enough sense to not wear any underwear. With a infant baby in the house now, it's all about speed." He's still possessive, "you're mine and there's nobody on this effing earth that can change that." Ty is even learning to deal with another man in Never's life and no I'm not talking about Baby Noah, "the rival male is holding my cub, you know, so I gotta be a little p***ed. Anything else would just be unnatural right?" Out of the series I'd have to say this one is by far my favorite we see Ty and Never in a different light, yes still struggling with life but doing so together. 

The Last Husband by J.S. Cooper

Sweet baby Jesus Zane is back, I've missed that boy! "In fact, I had nearly banged down Lucky's door, and was ready to kill Braydon." That's my boy always ready to kill something that moved in on his territory lol. Lucky I've missed her too, "actually, I would have wanted to go back to 1954, that way I could have asked Thurgood Marshall what he was thinking when he won Brown vs. Board of Education and then seen what we could have done to make sure it was implemented a bit better." That boy likes sex I'm telling you what, "I don't know what you just said." I jumped out of bed. "All I know is that I want you again very badly, and I better get in the shower before I ravish you and leave you sore for the whole day." He's totally considerate, well isn't that sweet. As I said he'd do anything for his woman, "I want you to be dependent on me. I want to be your provider." his words came out hoarsely. "I would do anything for you, Lucky. Money means nothing to me. I just want you to be happy and safe. And you're not going to be safe if you're on the streets." I think I enjoyed this book more than the first on probably because there were more special Zane and Lucky moments.

Razer's Ride by Jamie Begley

I've read some pretty vulgar stuff but Razer that boy just tops the damn cake. I mean he has his good sides, "oh no, you don't. I didn't bust my balls to drive back here breaking the speed limit for you to turn me away. Where are your keys?" Other times he can be well still sweet but maybe harsh is what I'm looking for? "I think you got to know me pretty well." Razer laughed. "Don't worry about all that other s***. It doesn't matter. I am pretty easy to get to know, you already figured out how to make me happy." When Beth and Razer are together and there's nobody with them they actually have a great relationship and Razer is playful, "baby, I can satisfy that hunger right after I satisfy..." There were times he was also a complete a** but we learn the reason why not that I forgave him or anything because it was rough on my emotions. Is this worth the read? I'd say yes but you need to prepare for some vulgar things that aren't in every day lives. 

The Guys are Props Club by Ingrid Seymour

This book was an interesting read, and I don't mean that in a bad way. I don't think (my memory is crap lately) I've ever read a book with this sort of plot. I knew by each page that I hated Jessica and I hoped the biatch gets what she deserves. Then there's Maddie that girl is sweet as pie and twice as nice. She reminded me of well me (no I'm not that ambitious),  but I used coupons and try to make what I buy count for something, "I used coupons when I could. I wondered if that made me cheap or just budget-minded." Sebastian, sweet lord in heaven that boy gets feelings and body parts working good, "relax," he said, his lips only inches from my ear. "I don't bite." He pulled away and looked down at me. His sideways smile formed a dimple on his right cheek. "Well, I do sometimes, but I always ask for permission first." I liked this book and I'm hoping to see more from this author. 

Playing for Keeps by Emma Hart

Out of all of Emma's books this one has to be my favorite. Aston sweet baby Jesus I love him, "you're not being attacked." Aston mutters against my mouth. "Unless you want it." He has a cocky jerk side, "I think you're wrong," he whispers. "Because I'm pretty sure you said you wanted me on Saturday night - right before you dug those nails of yours into my back and wrapped your pretty little legs around my waist." Aston and Megan's relationship is a work in progress through out the whole book, both trying to find their ground with each other and others around them, "face it, baby, you need me as much as I need you. Maybe I need you more. I haven't figured that out yet, but believe me, Megan Harper, if I have to walk out of this room without you promising me you're mine, I will come back and chase you down. I will chase you down and if I have to, I will pin you and your naked, trembling body to that damn bed until you say it." Megan and I we have things in common, like our books, "there's nothing wrong with my books. They give me what I don't have in real life." Ain't that the truth, and when someone messes with those books we get mad, "you don't throw my books. Ever." I tell him firmly. His lips twitch. "I mean it. Next time you throw one of my babies, especially a favorite, I will hurt you." Aston he just makes the story well actually both Megan and Aston do, but the s*** that comes out of Aston's mouth is funny, "please tell me it's easy to ride a horse with a boner." 

Love Hate by Ruth Houston

This book was funny as hell, Amber she's something else, "oh, Veronica, it makes me so happy when you're so ecstatic to see me! Usually people tend to be moody first thing in the morning but just light up a room with your optimism!" Her mouth does get the better of her, "oh, sorry, I slipped." I said sarcastically. "Maybe if you weren't staring at my chest and trying to be funny it wouldn't have happened. Take this as a warning that my hands tend to act of their own accord when someone makes indecent comments!" Tristan you just love to hate him or hate to love him however the saying goes, "I know a much better, more satisfying use for your hands than slapping me," Tristan said, his eyebrows waggling." Amber is not one to keep what is in her mind, well in her mind, "what's it to you if I date a hundred guys?! How is it any of your business?! You're dating Ashley! You got her pregnant! That should be what you're worried about, not who I'm dating!" This book is about Amber, the girl is trying to find her way, and needs to open her eyes to see what is right in front of her. 

Miles of Pleasure by Stephanie Nicole

*Sighs* there were times in the this book where I wanted to bash both Ashton and Kaylee's heads together and scream at them to get their s*** together. Ashton you can tell he has something for Kaylee but he's just a big baby and doesn't have balls to admit it, but then circumstances make him see things differently, "what the eff is going on here?" His angry eyes turned from Brandon to Kaylee as his voice rose. "You met this guy tonight and gave him your virginity already? What the eff are you thinking?" Ashton is also protective, "it's ok.  He won't touch you again. Do you hear me, Kaylee? Look at me." When s*** really hits the fan it's then they notice each other's true feelings well I should say Ashton does, "she needs me, "he insisted, the tears in his eyes finally threatening to fall. "She trusts me, she needs me, and I need her. Please." I love Stephanie's books they're always fun to read. 

BLOG TOUR EXCERPT: Angel Creek Series by Ada Adams

A simple mission turned deadly.

Nineteen-year-old vampire Dawn has led a sheltered life within the confines of her father’s presidential headquarters. Upon being sent on a mission to revamp four goofy misfits into guardians of a peaceful little town of Angel Creek, Dawn believes that all her dreams have finally come true. What starts off as a simple task, turns into something unexpected, changing Dawn’s life forever and leading the action-loving, thrill-seeking vampire teen on a path of mystery, danger and intrigue.

When a human girl is kidnapped by a group of rogue vamps, Dawn discovers that there is more going on in Angel Creek than meets the eye. And it all connects to Ethan, the cute newcomer who seems too perfect to be true, Sebastian, the mysterious vampire with a turbulent past, and even Dawn herself. Dawn must not only succeed in revamping the troubled recruits, but must also prevent the vampire race from being overtaken by a malevolent villain who has a strange and obsessive fascination with her. As threat escalates, romance blooms, and ghosts from her past begin to surface, Dawn is sure of only one thing: her life will never be the same


Becoming a vampire guardian was Dawn Fairchild’s ticket out of the Scarlet House. Fresh off a successful mission, life in Angel Creek should have been great. But when her sort-of-maybe-boyfriend, Sebastian, disappears on a quest to help a beautiful vampire from his past, Dawn finds herself amidst a web of danger, lies, and deceit.

Joining forces with Razor, an enigmatic rebel lacking both a verbal and a physical filter, and her band of Misfits—Brooke, Sophie, Hunter, and Seth—Dawn is thrust into a race against the clock to solve the mystery surrounding brutal Born kidnappings and come to terms with the sudden discovery of her own unique powers. With time ticking away and Born vampires’ lives in jeopardy, it quickly becomes evident that someone—or something—desperately wants Dawn and is willing to shed any amount of blood to get her.

Dawn has only one chance to face her demons and overcome all obstacles standing in her way as she embarks on the biggest mission of her life—one that threatens a deadly outcome for all involved.

A sharp, searing pain pierced my chest as I watched the guy I liked—the guy I was falling in love with—kiss another girl. With every fiber of my being, I willed myself to look away, my vision blurring in a desperate attempt to escape the agonizing scene before me. My mind failed to obey, and my gaze remained firmly glued to the couple.
Helpless, I surrendered to the nightmare, for a brief moment allowing myself to imagine that his muscular arms were, in fact, embracing me. After all, the girl’s face, with its pale complexion, high cheekbones, straight nose, and cupid-bow lips, was identical to mine. Her glossy brown hair cascaded all the way down her back, each wave perfectly matching my own. Even her slender body curved in precisely the same places. Looking at her was like gazing into the surface of a moving, breathing mirror.
She was me.
Or was I her?
She fluttered open her long, dark lashes, jolting me out of the fantasy by revealing the one perceptible difference between us: her emerald green eyes. While hauntingly beautiful, they looked nothing like my pale violet ones. She stared directly at me, tightening her grip on the one person in the world I wanted to be with. Mocking me for being too late.
“Aurora,” he whispered in her ear.
In that instant, I knew with certainty that he was not thinking about me.

Playing for Keeps by Kate Perry

This book is so cute and fun, the relationship between Grace and Pete is so remarkable, "it's just that you're so housebroken. You'd think some woman would have snapped up up long before now." It's evident that Pete would do anything for Grace, "the sacrifices I make for you." He squeezed my hand. "At least you're worth it." He's just so unbelievably sweet, "someone should kiss your hurts better." He also doesn't like bras ladies, "you have no idea how it drives me crazy when you don't wear a bra." I really love how Kate writes, I just love her books.

Nowhere by Marysue Hobika

I love me some country boys, but this time around it was the leading lady that captured my attention (I mean that in a NON perverted way.) "No, I'm not the athletic type," I answered proudly. "I prefer charcoal pencils and sketchpads to back flips and pom-poms." I love when the ladies stand proud of being different. "No, I don't drink. It smells repulsive and undoubtedly kills brain cells." And Dooner that boy you have to love him he's like a big giant teddy bear, all protective and ready to kick a**, "no big deal? That idiot almost knocked you to the ground. Cousin or not, he had no right." I really liked this book and I hope to see Emma's story next. 

Faking It by Cora Carmack

I loved Cade in 'Losing It' so I was totally excited for his story! Max that girl has all sorts of issues and so doesn't Cade so I liked how they both helped each other out, "all my parents know is we met in the library. You're nice and sweet and wholesome. My parents are crazy conservative, so no jokes about me taking your clothes off. We've been dating for a few weeks. Nothing complicated. I haven't told them anything anything else, so it should be pretty easy to sell." The thing that made me love the story loads was that Cade and Max are each other's cheerleaders, they're supporting each other and pick each other up when needed. 

Saltwater Kisses by Krista Lakes

This was a quick, cute short read, and everyone knows how much I love those (smiles). Jack is quite the sweetheart, "you have magic about you, Emma. I believe every word you say, and I rarely believe anyone." He's also sexy, "and judge me he did. I could hear him growl appreciatively as he appraised my body." Emma she's a character you can't help but fall in love with, even though she has insecurities, "of course he left. He saw me in the morning light, drooling in my sleep, and escaped as quickly as possible. Good thing I wasn't lying on his arm or he would have had to chew it off." Emma also is real fond of Jack despite the situation they're in, "I want to see Jack. He's the reason I'm here and it feels weird sleeping at his house and eating his food, but never seeing him." The girl also has balls, "you wanted to push me away. You saw one thing that you didn't like, and instead of trusting me, you accuse me. You wanted to hurt me. Go back to your perfect life in a perfect office, where you don't feel anything or trust anyone. Where you don't have to be vulnerable or even human. Congratulations. You'll get it all back. I'll leave you and your precious money. I know better than to stay where I'm not wanted." You go girl. Needless to say I liked this quick, fun read.  

Subject to Change by Alessandra Thomas

Hawk, how do you describe him? Well he's just dreamy and bada** that's all there is to it, "oh, Christ. Did I seriously effing fall asleep." He just has a way about him you can't help but love, he's also a mystery, you know there is more to him that meets the eye, "we could go grab something to eat. Yeah." Hawk cocked his head toward the opposite counter. "You get the plates, and I'll take these out." I mean don't get me wrong the boy isn't perfect and he has his a**y moments, "Christ, Joey. I said I don't want to talk about it right now. There's nothing you can do. When will you get that." I hope to see Olivia's story next. 

BOOK BLITZ: Imaginations by Tara Brown

What price would you pay to be free of conflict and remorse?
An arm? A leg? All of your memories?
What if you had no choice?
What if it was something that was taken for the good of the world?
Fortunately for Gwyn that question has never had to be answered.
The price has already been paid.
She lives in a world free of sorrow, regret, misery, and guilt.
A world based on the promise that everyday is a new one.
A world where only the Memory Makers know what happened yesterday.
But the world is not as simple as they made it sound.
She discovers the Club of the Unknown, where dark deeds are committed and supposed to be forgotten in the morning.
There she discovers the promise of a new day was false.
Finishing behavioral school and blazing her own path in the world, leads her to the realization that not everyone paid the same price for freedom.
She can’t stop herself from seeing the truths hidden in the corners of her mind.
Or the green eyes of the boy leading her down the dark hallway.

Barnes and noble always takes awhile! BOOO!

*Author Bio*

I am not going to talk in the third person. It feels weird.

I am a Canadian author of Paranormal Romance, Post Apocalyptic and Fantasy novels. Mostly because I think I have Writers ADD, I like to call it WADD. It might be a real thing.

I write New Adult, my books have sexual content (Heck yes) and Swearing. You have been warned. Now enjoy!

I have a beagle named Buster, a husband who I force to read everything I write and two girls who want so badly to be a character in my books. And not in that order.

I am mid thirties so be prepared for the chick lit novel this year. I am calling it my Ode to my Midlife Crisis. 
I have been writing since I was old enough to lie. So for some time.

 Welcome to my world. Please enjoy the ride.

BOOK BLITZ: Shadow of Hope by Elizabeth Rose & Tina Pollick

A secret passed from generation to generation. A line of heirs destined to protect those they once persecuted. One god who seeks to destroy humanity's last Hope...
Zoe is an ordinary woman who talks to her spirit, was raised by her coven, and doesn’t speak to her father. Until one day she finds out that the necklace left to her by her mom, holds humanities last hope
Evan is her reluctant protector, the last of the Templar Knights, who's watched her from the shadows since she was a teenage girl. When an assailant from the past emerges and steals the key to keeping the rest of the world safe, Evan and Zoe must form a tenuous alliance to get it back.
Up against a mysterious enemy older than time, and a really pissed off God of War, Zoe and Evan have the odds stacked against them as they try to reclaim the Hope of all humanity. That's if they can avoid killing each other.
Shadow of Hope is a fast paced, thrilling paranormal romance novella.

Author Elizabeth Rose grew up in a household where reading was a favorite pastime. Having been encouraged by her parents as a young child to pursue the greats (Dr. Seuss and Amilia Bedilla) she quickly found herself wanting more than to just read stories of Charming Princes in far off lands; she wanted to write them as well.
Having been a follower of Gabriel, Elizabeth found a strong bond of friendship with author Tina Pollick. Having many common interests, Tina and Elizabeth decided to attempt co-writing a novel together. The end process was both enjoyable and enlightening.
Elizabeth currently resides in Wyoming with her two dogs, Bard and Blade. She is graciously allowed to attend the needs of her tomcat Tinker. Shadow of Hope is her first book. Stop by and say hi!

When Tina Pollick isn’t writing paranormal romance about Heavenly hunks, and smart, sassy women, this RN enjoys a quiet home life with her husband, children, two horses, two dogs, cat, chickens, guineas, well sort of quiet.
Tina’s first paranormal romance novel, GABRIEL, A Kematian Hunter Series was published in January 2013 by Evernight Publishing. The first in a three novella series, SOUL BROKER, will be published by Moon Rose Publishing in August 2013. Stop by and say hello!

Color Me Pretty by C.M. Stunich

I liked this book better then the first one in the duet probably because of the happiness in it. Yes it's about Claire's journey but it's how she does it that makes the story. It's also about that one person who sticks by your side through good times and bad and that's why I fell so hard for Emmett, "aren't we all? The best we can do is embrace the half-alive bit, see where it takes us because eventually, we all succumb to that other side of ourselves. We just have to make sure that when we do," Emmett puts the fingers of one hand under my chin and leans in close to me, teasing my mouth with his lips. "We have no regrets. that we go knowing we spent every last drop." When someone threatens Claire's support system she becomes a fighter, "say it," I growl and she snaps her gaze to mine. "Say it and prepare to never effing see me again. Belittle Emmett, be disgusted with him for sleeping with me. I know you want to." I did wish that the ending went on a little bit longer I would have loved to see what happens between Claire and her family. 

Octavian's Undoing by Airicka Phoenix

Riley she's just a sweet little thing, "I'm sorry and no offense, but I'd like to give it to him personally. There are some very important things inside and I'd feel better knowing he got them. Not saying that you wouldn't give it to him, but..." Octavian, he's well possessive maybe, "you dare out your hands on what's mine, Billius?" Octavian is nothing but honest (well in some instances), "I was shocked as hell to see you here, you, a human in a place that could get you killed. I didn't want you to be where you are right now. I was trying to protect you." He looked down. "You should have listened to me." The way he talks, it's like melt in your panties way, "baby, I felt you. It took all my self-control not to turn around and pull you into my arms. Scared the hell out of me. Why do you think I didn't notice my wallet missing until I walked into the diner and say you there?" I mean REALLY melt in your panties, "you better stop or I'll show you what I can handle and I can promise it won't be slow or gentle." He's also so protective I mean no one messes with his woman, "she didn't mean to," Octavian hissed. "She's still a baby and still needs to learn how to control herself. You can't think she would ever hurt Daphne deliberately." Whelp get to writing Airicka I'm ready for Gideon's story. 

Man of Steel by MJ Fields

Normally I don't read novellas as they're just to short for me but when I saw the cover I knew I had to read it. Jase he's just all sorts of bossy, and I like it, "Carly, it's Jase. I must have grabbed yours by mistake. Meet me at the beach so we can switch phones, ten minutes." He seems to always get what he wants, I'm not sure if I like that in a man yet, "yes, I told you I wanted to hang out, and by that I meant you and me, not everyone else." Jase is a sarcastic little s***, "yes Carly, my mom owns a little shop on the boardwalk. She also does tattoos." Jase smirked at me, "I had your name tattooed on my a**." Jase I guess his thoughtful, "I broke up with her so we could spend time together. I am not a cheater, and either are you. Climb up on the board, we will deal with her together," Jase patted the board. "Tick tock baby. I won't let her hit you Carly." And there was a cliffhanger everyone knows how much I love them (not). 

Rock Chick Regret by Kristen Ashley

Hector I would say is a little more possessive then the other men in this series, "this means she's mine. No on touches what's mine. And they sure as eff don't beat her, rape her and leave her broken. Did you see her effin' house?" He's a real appreciative guy as well, "you put my mark on you. To show my appreciation, I'm gonna eff you until you scream my name and I wanna make sure you remember it. Now, how effin' drunk are you?" He's also a bossy a**, like seriously, "you just agreed to move in, that means you just agreed to officially becoming my woman. I take care of my woman. I pay the mortgage, I pay the bills, I fix up the house. We go out, I pay. Your money is for you. I take care of us." Damn I want a man like that. Although this is the last book in the series (so far) I hope there's more there's still Ally's story that we need and a few more men from the hot bunch that we need to hear about. 

Repossession by Rachael Wade

I liked this book a lot the ending upset me mainly because there was a damn cliffhanger and I didn't get what I was hoping for to happen. Jet he made the book for me, "yes, I'm a mutant alien creature here to take you aboard the Mother Ship. I'm packing heat." He kept me entertained through out the book, "well, what you want and what's actually going to happen are two very different realities." He's honest, "I couldn't, because my need to be near you, to protect you, is so effing strong, it knocks the wind out of me. It's physically impossible for me to walk away from wherever you are. No woman has ever done that to me. It makes me crazy made, okay?" Sky that girl as Jet would say is full of piss and vinegar, "did you not just see me on that screen? I can't stand the thought of an animal suffering, let alone a human being. Now, I'd like to speak to him. Please." I'm so ready for the next one in the series!
