Rum & Coke 

Not everything goes as planned …

Vincent Reed always believed he’d play professional volleyball in the Olympics, but when he’s injured his sophomore year of college, his dreams are crushed and he loses his scholarship. Instead of dropping out of school, Vinny began working as a male escort to pay for his education and fulfill his new dream of teaching children. Enjoying the life of luxury and travel, Vinny continues moonlighting as a male escort after graduation. He has everything he could ever need.

Everything happens for a reason …

Teresa Stewart never planned to get pregnant before she was married. She also didn’t plan for the father of her baby to die in combat before she could even tell him the news. Struggling to feed herself and her son, Colton, Tessa moves to Las Vegas where she hopes the cost of living will be cheaper and she’ll find a job in a popular hotel. But finding a job isn’t easy for Tessa, and a neighbor soon convinces her that stripping is the best way to make the money she needs to provide for her small family. All of life’s puzzle pieces are starting to come together, but Tessa knows something is still missing.

They say best friends make the best lovers …

At a bachelor party for his co-worker, Vinny meets Tessa. The sexual attraction is undeniable, but they each have something holding them back from moving forward. They grow even closer when Vinny becomes Colton’s teacher, and it seems as though all the pieces are finally falling into place.

However, sometimes the best-laid plans turn to hell …

Because murder will change everything.

I loved every amazing word of this book. It’s got all the right moves to captivate your attention and wanting to read it like crazy to see what happens next.” – Goodreads ARC Review

Across the Horizon ~Release Day~

AcrosstheHorizon_availnowbanner.jpg

Release Day – DEC 6, 2018

“Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair.

I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouth-watering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike.

Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine—or six.

Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it…

So does heartbreak.

Summary

River
As the perilous journey across a country I’d long thought destroyed begins, I don’t know who I am anymore or what I’m becoming. My abilities grow stronger with each passing day, as does the fear of what comes next. All I know is that I will do anything to avoid becoming like Lucifer, and to protect those I love, even if that means protecting them from me.

Kobal
No matter what it takes, I will keep River safe, even if my actions end up driving a wedge between us. River is mine to protect, no matter how hard that might be to do now that our journey has begun. I won’t stop until Lucifer is destroyed, won’t stop until I claim my throne, and she will be by my side when I do. It’s all just a matter of keeping her alive until then.

There are four books in this paranormal romance series which is now complete. Not all things will be resolved in this book. Due to sexual content, violence, and language, this book is recommended for listeners 18+ years of age.

~Amazon~

Review

Carved, picks-up right where Good Intentions left off. River and Kobal’s relationship is just a wishy-washy as it was in the first book. One second they’re hot and all over each other and the next second one of them is somehow offending the other, I guess they have a normal-ish relationship. I am happy that this isn’t just a power couple that is completely head over heels in love with one another. It makes everything very refreshing to see a normal type of relationship, as normal as a relationship can be when one is a human, and the other is from hell.

River has been working on her craft, a wondrous gift from her dad, Lucifer. With River working hard to perfect her abilities, she’s working even harder at trying to save herself from becoming like her father. Alongside a group of abled humans who have ranked high among the classes in the camp and Kobal along with his companions, it shows just how when the time comes everyone can work together, we’d hope. I enjoy seeing both River and Kobal working hard to accomplish one main goal, but at times I felt that the story could’ve moved along a little faster.

If anyone checks out the story, let me know if you have the same feelings as I did. From the normal like relationships to the trust, they have to have with one another during post-apocalyptic times, down to the heartfelt moments gives you a warming feeling, and makes you believe everything will work out perfectly fine, only the next book will tell.

Free E-book Friday

Happy Friday readers, this week Free E-books will be Paranormal Romance;

Bron in Fire

Born in Fire by K.F. Breene

Supernatural Bounty Hunter isn’t the sort of thing you see on LinkedIn. But with a rare type of magic like mine, I don’t have many options.

So dangerous or not, the job is mine. And it was going fine, until an old as sin vampire stole my mark, and with it, my pay day.

Knowing I’m poor and desperate, he has offered me a job. I’ll have to work by his side to help solve a top secret case.

Everyone knows not to trust vampires. Especially a hot elder vampire. But without any other jobs coming up, I’m stuck. As I uncover a web of lies and treachery, revealing an enemy I didn’t know existed, the truth of my identity is threatened. I might make it out alive, only to end up in a gilded cage.

The Legend of the Blue Eyes

The Legend of the Blue Eyes by B. Kristin McMichael

Things that go bump in the night are bad enough when you think they are just stories, but it’s even worse when you become one.

Arianna Grace liked her boring, Midwestern, teenage life where she ignored the many unanswered questions of her childhood. Why were her parents dead? Where was she raised until she was five? When someone offers to explain it all, Arianna thinks she’s just getting answers. Instead, she is thrown into a world of night humans who drink blood. Night humans, or demons, as some call them, live in normal society. Learning all of the new rules of a world she didn’t know existed might be hard enough, but it’s further complicated by two former-friends that now want to help her take her role as the successor to her grandfather.

There is a war going on between the night humans. Sides have been taken and lines are not crossed. Four main clans of night humans are struggling for control of the night. Divided into two sides, clans Baku and Tengu have been at war for centuries with the clans Dearg-dul and Lycan. That is, until Arianna Grace finds out the truth; she’s the bridge of peace between the two sides. But not everyone wants peace. With the night humans divided, Arianna is now a pawn in the war between them. She must choose a side–her mother’s family or her father’s–and for once in her life, decide her own fate.

THE LEGEND OF THE BLUE EYES is the first book in The Blue Eyes Trilogy and first of fourteen novels in the night human world by best-selling author B. Kristin McMichael.

Bite Me

Bite Me: (Bitten, Book 1)  by C.C. Wood

I had the perfect life; an awesome job in advertising, a gorgeous high rise apartment, and a flirtation with the guy down the hall. Then it all came crashing down. Two months later I was a cocktail waitress living in a tiny one bedroom apartment. I had also developed a serious ‘men suck’ attitude.
That all changed the night I met the beautiful and enigmatic Conner Savage. But there was just one little problem…he said he was a vampire. Figures a man that hot would be batshit crazy. Or so I thought. It didn’t take me long to realize that Conner wasn’t a nut job and that I was addicted to him. With every moment we spent together he drew me deeper into his world and the supernatural culture in which he lived.
Now I had a choice: the vampire I craved or a normal life. Couldn’t be easier, right?

Good Intentions Review

Good Intentions4.5 out 5 stars

Good Intentions ( The Road to Hell Book 1) by Brenda K. Davies

Published: July 17, 2016

Genre: Paranormal Romance

E-book: 374 pages

Audiobook: 10h 28m

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Amazon            Kobo             Barnes&Noble

River,

It has been thirteen years since the war started, the bombs were dropped, and the central states became a thing of the past. When the war ended, a wall was erected to divide the surviving states from those destroyed. I never expected to go beyond the wall, but unlike all the others who volunteered to go, I wasn’t given a choice.

With a dim knowledge of what I could do, the soldiers came for me. They took me beyond the wall where I learned that the truth is far more terrifying than I’d ever dreamed. Alone, with humans and demons seeking to learn what it is I can do, I find myself irresistibly drawn to the one man I should be avoiding most. One who intrigues and infuriates me. One who is not even a man, not really.

Kobal,

My entire life, I’ve had only one mission, reclaim my throne from Lucifer and put right everything that was torn apart when he was cast from Heaven. It’s a mission I haven’t wavered from, not even when the humans tore open the gates and unleashed Hell on earth.

Now, I’ve never been closer to obtaining my goal yet I find myself risking it all because I cannot stay away from her, a human who may be the key to it all.

***There will be at least four books in this series. Not all things will be resolved in this book. Due to graphic language, violence and sexual content this book is recommended for readers 18+ years of age.***


Please be advised, before moving forward there may be a few spoilers you may now return to your scheduled program.

River and Kobal, what an intense couple, if you can really call them that.

The story first opens up with River and her life after the war. This war which is kept as a secret from the citizens (shocker) is far from being over. The war being waged on the world is between demons and humans, some has opened a door that leads to the underworld. Luckily there are multiple gates until you get to the lowest level, aka “The Devils” territory, but that doesn’t mean the first 6 are filled with emptiness.

There is a sort of tradition where the military comes looking for volunteers to help fight and protect the remaining bits of civilization, and it shows that the military is searching for something or someone. I know you’ve already connected the dots here, River is that possible missing piece, she is taken away from her family, which consists of her baby brother and some of her close friends. Rivers mother, now that is a different story within itself. Once River reaches the camp where they will be training and preparing for their departure deeper into the infected area, she finds out a little about herself. She has abilities, abilities that she’s known about but never had an explanation for and the possibility of how she got her abilities.

Now, this is where Kobal comes into the picture. Due to Rivers powers, Kobal the leader of the ‘good’ demons work hand in hand with anyone who appears to have any type of special abilities; these abilities will be the key to defeating the demons that are escaping through the gates and to bring this war to a full stop. Although they have just met, and within a lot of stories involving other species it starts as instant love. Kobal and River start as what I would call hate to love relationship. They get on each other’s nerves in the beginning, but also feel an attraction. I think stories set up like this make the perfect love stories, with the conflict in the beginning and allowing the characters to grow into something makes it feel a little more real.

I enjoyed this first book of the series; I stayed away from reading the summary because I didn’t want there to be any possibility of spoilers.  A significant portion of the book reveals little peaks into the next part of the series and sets the scene. I enjoyed the characters, and how human the demons came across and the situational building that was provided so that you could see and understand both sides. All in all, I am pleased with the way everything was set up, and I can’t wait to give you guys the review on the second book.

Until next time, be sure to Read THS!

Day 26 of Writing Challenge

Prompt: You receive a package that you don’t recall ordering.

Blurb:

I open my front door and find a package sitting on my doorstep right where I was about to walk. Confused I reach down and pick up the bag and set it on the kitchen counter. I didn’t remember ordering anything from Amazon, I’d put myself on a strict no purchasing ban for the next couple of weeks, I was starting to redecorate my house, and I got click happy whenever I logged into my account.

I pull out a pair of scissors from my junk drawer and cut into the flimsy package, it didn’t feel too heavy, but it wasn’t like the big boxes I had been receiving lately. Sticking my hand in the slit I’d just cut, I pull out a bulky box and a sheet of paper. The paper had RULES written on the top, with bullet points below, just glancing at the sheet there had to be about 15 different points. I grabbed the box and pulled out a watch that had a timer on the face of it.

“What is going on?” I ask the empty room, I pick up these “rules,” and begin to read.


Thanks for checking on day 26 of my writing challenge, we are nearing the end, and I must say I am happy with the dedication I’ve put into setting everything up. Until next time, Read THS!

Paris Bound Review

Paris Bound

Paris Bound by Summer Brooks

I met him in the city of love.
He whooshed by with his perfect little daughter.
I turned around.
And it took him a minute to steal my heart.
He towered over me with his flawlessly sculpted face.
Rich, powerful, and a doting father.
My nasty luck with men told me that he was too good to be true.
I wanted to turn back around.
To run for my life.
But guess what?
I stayed and shook his hand instead.
His mahogany eyes met mine.
Everything went from wrong to right.
Until it all spiraled out of control…
Shane Rodman actually wasn’t too good to be true.
He was the devil with a hidden agenda.
I fell in love with the enemy.
I crossed that line.
But like they say, the line between love and hate is a thin one.

No cheating and a guaranteed HEA!

~Amazon~

4 out of 5 stars


Review

*Spoilers*

Paris Bound is a short and sweet story where two people are brought together by a sweet headstrong 13-year-old, Shane and Kristina. Shane, a business mogul, and Kristina a fashion designer appearing at her first show in Paris are quickly swept up with one another, although they have different viewpoints on the fashion industry. With this story being so short, it was easy to get through, but it was a little difficult to become invested in the characters with so much going on in such a short time. I did like the chemistry between Shane and Kristina, but falling in love in a total of about 3 days is a stretch for me. I did enjoy the main concept of the story, with Shane being a single dad and wanting to protect his daughter, and by showing Kristina’s hard work and dedication to something she loved, was an overall nice set-up.

This was the first story I have read by the author, I may read her next book to see how things stack up.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

Day 25 of Writing Challenge

Prompt: You are at the end of your book, the last chapter is done, and you can finally breathe easy.

Blurb:  I type out my final two words of my very first novel, The End, and I can’t help but to smile and get a little emotional. I’d finally done it. I finally made my dreams come true and wrote a book, one that I’d been working on for the longest time ever but I’m now done. It is surreal, and I push back from my desk and head towards the kitchen this moment requires a toast, although I’m by myself a little celebration wouldn’t hurt.

I reach the kitchen and pull my favorite red wine out of the fridge, I take out my favorite wine glass that just so happens to hold an entire bottle at a time. I pour my glass and inhale the sweet aroma of the wine as it fills the air around me, and take a large gulp. Walking back into my living room I sit on the couch and pull my feet underneath me sighing and resting my head on the back of the sofa.  Out of nowhere, there’s a blaring noise, I look around trying to find the source but come up empty as I glance around. Getting up from my spot, I walked around my apartment from room to room to see that freaking beeping noise.

Slowly I start to feel all hazy and like I was having an out of body experience. Slowly Everything went black, and I opened my eyes. Confused I sat up and rub the back of my neck where it was sore and stiff as well as my legs, that was tingling from being asleep. As I sit up in my chair, I look at my laptop and see the cursor blinking after the last thing I’d typed, and it wasn’t The End.


Isn’t that frightening, can you imagine finishing your story, or blog post and waking up to find that it was nothing but a dream. The happiness and peace that you felt when you typed out those final words were just a figment of your imagination? I wouldn’t wish such a thing on my worst enemy. Well, thanks for stopping by be sure to leave your thoughts, and your take on finishing up a very important project of yours. Until next time, be sure to Read THS!

Day 23 of Writing Challenge

Prompt: You are woken up with the sound of scraping against a stone wall.

Blurb: 

Where…where am I? I open my eyes wide as I turn my head back and forth trying to mack out objects in the dark. My wrists are held together by some material, and my arms are in pain but feel lifeless at the same time. I try to pull my arms forward since they are held above my head, but there’s no such luck. Taking deep breaths, I try not to panic although this would be an ideal moment to freak out.

The last thing I remembered was locking up the store and heading home. The street seemed quiet as usual, no passing cars, no loud people walking about, I mean the mom and pop coffee house/bookstore was nestled in the middle of a quiet neighborhood instead of some busy downtown road, but the quiet suited the place. I remember walking across the street to my car, and that was it, it’s like my mind went completely blank. I don’t know if I ever made it home, I don’t know if I was home, and I have no clue what time it is or the day. All I know is that my arms are tied up above my head, my feet aren’t too far from the ground because my big toe is grazing the surface, which feels like dirt and rocks, and that I am cold, terribly cold.

Before my mind could asses anything else around me, and my situation, I hear a scraping noise, not loud but almost like scuffling, it sounded similar to the noise that had made me open my eyes.

“Hello, is there anyone in here with me?” Silence greeted me, no one spoke but the scraping sound came again, it sounded like metal on rocks or stones. I stretched my fingers out to try and feel the surface behind me, there was a wall a stonewall, that was a clue…something was scraping against the wall.

“I can hear you scraping against the wall, can you please answer me, where are we, why are we here, and who brought us here?”

“Hush, stop talking you’re going to make those things come back.”

“Can you just answer one of my questions?” I beg, I only want to know where we were and if whoever responded knew anything.

” I don’t know where we are, but they brought you in I’m guessing a couple of days ago. I don’t know what the things are, but they don’t sound like regular people, they talk in some sort of weird language, and they force come by and give us water. That’s all I know, please don’t say anything else, I don’t want them coming back any time soon.”

New Reads Monday!

Happy Monday Readers,

Welcome to another new read Monday, where I post my latest reads.

Allien Warrior

Alien Warrior by Sadie Carter

Stuck on a military outpost in the middle of nowhere, Zoey had been praying for something to relieve her boredom.
She never dreamed that relief would come in the form of a seven-foot tall, sexy alien. One who claimed she belonged to him.
Delusional.
Except, there was something pulling her to him… a deep, hot attraction she couldn’t deny.
Dexanon Xa’a always thought his mate would be a sweet, obedient female. Instead, the Gods landed him with a maddening, outspoken, outrageous female who didn’t comprehend the honor that had been bestowed on her.
Dex might have a rockin’ body, but his ideas about women needed a total overhaul.
And she was just the woman to do it.

So far so good. As of late I have been reading a lot of fantasy books, but that’s not completely true as fantasy is always a constant read for me. I do love the way this world is set up, with earth existing and the knowledge of other aliens out in the galaxies it makes for a nice paced read with interesting view points.

Day 21 of Writing Challenge

Prompt: Your sibling has been practicing music for hours on end, suddenly there’s a loud crash and then complete silence. 

Blurb:

“Mike, Mike, what are you doing in there?” Silence follows my question, not a groan, shuffling of feet, or a mumble telling me to leave my little brother alone, and that he’s fine. I open the door to find his soprano saxophone on the ground next to his music stand, but I do not see him. I push the door all the way open and walk in to glance around the corner and see his window is open. Odd because he never opens his window, I mean we never have a need to so, I know he never opens it let alone leave it open. Walking over to the window I lean over the edge trying to see the ground, “Mike?” From the street, I hear tires screech I turn and run down the stairs and out the front, “Mike!”
