After reading the first book in this series, Hammered, I wasn’t sure if this was going to be something I was going to enjoy.  Hammered was very heavy on the erotica and fairly light on the storyline and I had expected much the same from this book.  I am very ecstatic to say that I was wrong.  Yes, this book did have some pretty intense sex scenes, but they were always secondary to the Garrett and Juliana.

After reading Hammered, I wasn’t sure that Juliana could be redeemed.  I was actually pretty sure I would never like her no matter what happened with her.  She had done and said things that were seemingly unforgivable. If took some time, a lot of time – most of the book, really for her to win me over piece by piece.  Her past, her fears, combined with some bad choices by all parties made her choices much easier to understand.  She was more damaged than I could have imagined and I loved getting to witness her heal and become a person who was deserving of all the things she was sure she never would.

Garrett had his own truckload of horrific things in his past, some of his own doing and some thrust upon him by the most types of people.  The dynamic between him and his brothers, particularly Gage, made this story for me.  Their relationship started as the kind of thing nightmares are made of and slowly morphed into a beautiful demonstration of love and kindness.  The way that Gage took cared for his brothers, Juliana, and Brandon showed just how magnificent a person he was in spite of the things life had dealt him.

While there were some things I wish would have been more fully resolved, I know there is another book, Grayson’s, coming and I’m hoping to find answers in it.

Except his decision has shattering consequences, leading to secrets, lies, and the ultimate betrayal.

Years later, their lives continue to entwine, and when his past returns demanding retribution, Mackenzie intervenes and gets caught in the crossfire, leaving behind a devastation that no one sees coming. Can their relationship withstand the hell it’s endured, or is it too late for love?

With a low chuckle I roll over on my bed to eyeball the stolen file that I’d slapped on my bedside table last night before crashing. I’m feeling rather pleased with myself until my gaze encounters Jake. My gleeful chortle dies a quick death.

He’s leaning against my bedroom wall, bare-chested, arms folded, and wearing nothing but a pair of black boxer-briefs and a furious glare.

My gaze drops to the bed where Jake has laid out the black beanie used to cover my pale hair, and the black leather gloves that kept my fingerprints from any surface I came in contact with.

Fuck. The sun is streaming in through the blinds and I know it must be late morning already. Clearly I’d forgotten to set the morning alarm. A rookie mistake. And now I need to get past the gauntlet that is Jake and somehow get the file to Casey before he enacts his own plan to retrieve it.

My eyes flick up, meeting his. “Morning,” I say coolly.

His jaw ticks. “Care to explain?”

Jake’s car keys rest on top of the report file and I know he’s seen them. Not only had I performed a break and enter last night, I had also added car theft to my criminal repertoire. Explaining that will likely cause my untimely death. I pretend to consider his question for a moment. “Not really.”

Jake pushes off from the wall and moves toward the bed, bringing him closer. “Well you’re going to.”

“No,” I say, casually sliding across the mattress and away from Jake. “Not today. I have things to—”

Putting one knee on the bed, Jake leans across and grabs the back of my long-sleeved shirt in his fist. He yanks and the distinct sound of a riiipppppp renders the air.

“My shirt,” I gasp as I fly through the air, landing on my back on the mattress with a hard bounce.

“I don’t give a rat’s fucking ass about your shirt,” he growls, straddling my body.

His hard thighs trap me in place and his hands pin mine to the bed. Moving will likely end with a cracked rib.

Jake leans his face down until I can’t look anywhere but in his eyes. “You can start with why you’re dressed like a thieving little bandit.”

“Because I stole your car.”

“Why did you steal my car?”

“Because I couldn’t get a cab.”

I actually considered calling for a taxi but then my movements would be on public record, easily placing me at the scene. I’d had to rule it out.

“Stop leading me in circles, Princess, and spit it the fuck out. What did you do?

I huff deeply, letting my frustration out. Jake isn’t going to just let this go. It leaves me with two choices. Lie or be honest. I chose door number two, because while I sometimes keep things from Jake, he doesn’t deserve outright deceit.

I spill out my early hours adventure, rethinking my choice of honesty as he sits back on the bed, his fury a slow-building thunderstorm.

There’s silence for a tense moment when I finish speaking.

“You committed a felony,” he says in a soft voice. I’m not fooled by the tone. His anger is a barely leashed lion. “And you used my car to do it.”

My lips press in a thin line. I hadn’t thought that particular implication through, and now I’m angry at myself. “I’m sorry.”

His expression narrows to one of vengeful retribution. “Oh you’ll be sorry.”

“I will?”

“When I paddle your fucking ass.”

“Jake—”

“Shut it,” he growls, his voice rising. “You broke into a detective’s house. You stole her property. You—”

“Casey’s property,” I mutter.

“Don’t interrupt me when I’m explaining your stupidity to you.”

Found Underneath by KL Kreig ~ Sarah A’s Review

Young adult heterosexual couple lying on bed in bedroom, together with a dog

It began as a ruse.

Take a girlfriend. Divert the press from the fucked up mess that’s my family until my father is re-elected. Stage a public breakup. Move on.

Only that brilliant plan went straight south the moment I set eyes on Willow Blackwell.

I found her.

My center. My future. A soulmate with the will of a mule and the mouth of a harpy.

I now want things I never wanted before. Permanent kinds of things.

Only Fate—and her ex—have other plans for us.

In some sort of cosmic impossibility, our lives unknowingly intersected years before when tragedy befell both our families. Once the devastating truth is finally revealed, the future I’d found in her will come crashing down around us and for the first time in my life I’m completely helpless.

I may very well lose the only woman I’ve ever loved to a past neither of us saw coming.

*warning: 18+ only. Contains foul language, explicit sex and a hot alpha (or two, or three). NOTE: This is NOT a standalone. It’s the conclusion to LOST IN BETWEEN, which MUST be read first.

Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon AU | Amazon CA | B&N | iBooks | Kobo

I still can’t believe I waited so long to read KL Kreig’s books.  Lost in Between (book 1) completely drew me in and this book was no different.  I often feel that the second book in a duet doesn’t quite stand up to its predecessor but Found Underneath far exceeded any expectations I had set up for it.  It built on all of those things that had happened in book one, wove and the unraveled a web of mystery and deceit so intense I was completely engrossed in every second I was reading this book.

This is definitely a book that can not be read as a standalone.  I honestly wish I had done a reread of Lost in Between right before I stared Found Underneath because there was so much information that I didn’t completely remember in the months since I’d finished it.  Experiencing it as one uninterrupted sotry would definitely be the best way to read these books.

The very best part of the duet, for me, was how much the characters grew.  When the book started they were both so guarded, so broken, in mindsets that seemed so immature considering the lives they’d lived.  Watching them each realize that it was fear of the unknown, fear of the pain of loss that caused them to live in the way they each did was heartwarming.  I loved seeing them blossom into people who had the capacity to see beyond their own wants, needs, fears to become whole people; people who were able to begin healing from the pain of the past they had all clung to so desperately.

I hope that we are able to see more of the supporting characters in duet.  I desperately want to know more about all of them, particularly Annabelle, but there isn’t a single character who doesn’t seem to have an important story to tell if given the chance.  I will definitely be keeping an eye on KL Kreig to see if I’ll be able to learn about those stories.

FOUNDUNDERNEATH_TEASER4

We all have one.

A price.

That magic number that will get us to agree to do anything, be anything.

Don’t sit on your gold-plated high horse and say you don’t because you do. Everyone does. Each of us has something we covet enough that we’d sell ourselves to have it.

What’s my tipping point, you ask? Apparently a cool quarter mil will do the trick.

What does one do for 250 large, you wonder? Anything the infamous, gorgeous playboy of Seattle wants. For the next four months I’ll be Shaw Mercer’s arm candy, his beck and call girl, his faux girlfriend. I’ll be his to command, mold, push and pull in any direction he sees fit.

I’ll fight falling into bed with him. I’ll fight falling in love with him even harder. I’ll fail at both. And when my past and present collide in the most unexpected of ways, I’ll learn that while one man’s love for me has never died, the only man’s love I really want will never be mine.

As a USA Today Bestselling author, I write stories that are deeply emotional with flawed characters, because humans ARE flawed and if we read about perfect characters living in their perfect world, first of all, snoozer, but secondly, we never experience the gratification of redemption.

Outside of writing, I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).

Release Blitz ~ Unsteady by Jillian Anselmi

U

The actions from the past are still dwelling, hovering on the surface, waiting to strike.

Broken. Traumatized. Consumed.

Delani Delvecchio has danced with the devil, battled the evil in the drug world, and came out swinging. But her victory is short lived.

She’s slipping—slipping from reality and fearing everything around her.

Nightmares are trying to control her mind. The foundation of her emotions is rocky and uncertain, forcing her to pull more into herself than she ever has before.

Loyal. Determined. Faithful.

Brody Russell saved Delani from hell, only to be faced with a hell of his own.

Delani isn’t healing, and try as he might to bring his sassy, bright-eyed girl back to the surface, nothing seems to be working.

He’s struggling – struggling to hold her in his grasp while facing a trial determined to test every ounce of control he has. Emotions run high, boundaries are pushed, and the odds stacked against them become a race against time.

They thought the storm was over, but they had only reached the eye, and things are about to get Unsteady.

BLOG TOUR AND REVIEW! Gone with the Ghost by Erin McCarthy

Gone With the Ghost (Murder By Design, book 1)

by Erin McCarthy

Date of Publication: May 23, 2017

Bailey Burke has had a rough six months—it’s not easy thinking your romantic overtures toward your best friend caused him to kill himself. Except that’s exactly what happened. Ryan is very much dead, having shot himself with his own police-issued gun. Guilt and grief shouldn’t cause hallucinations though, but six months after Ryan went into the ground, Bailey is freaking out and swearing his ghost is standing in her kitchen. Which he is…

Ryan claims he didn’t commit suicide, but was murdered, and he needs Bailey to help him find his killer so he can earn his ticket out of purgatory. Which contrary to national opinion is not their hometown of Cleveland. Ryan’s counting on a stairway to heaven, as opposed to wings, since that might be a little unmanly for a cop, even a dead one.

An expert in home design, with her own staging business, Bailey can tell you where to place a couch to improve flow and comfort, but solving a crime? Not her area of expertise. But with help from Ryan’s former partner, Marner, she is unraveling the mystery of what happened to Ryan that day… and unwittingly putting herself in grave danger.

Whitney’s 3.5 Star Review

Gone with the Ghost is a mystery novel from an author I’ve previously enjoyed reading romance from. I wanted something a little different than my standard romantic genre and hoped to find a new series to look forward to.

Overall, I was pleased with this book. It’s definitely not traditional romance but does have some romantic elements to it. The main two characters are Bailey, a slightly down on her luck former crime scene analysis turned home stager/designer. She doesn’t like blood after all!

Bailey is hung up on her best friend, Ryan, who died six months ago. So when Ryan appears in Bailey’s house she is quite overwhelmed. Ryan doesn’t know exactly what’s going on but he does know that his death was mysterious and he can’t cross over until he has helped find out who killed him.

So now for the good and the bad. Bailey is pretty awesome. She’s very ‘real’. Flawed, a little awkward, smart… I really enjoyed her character. Ryan not so much. I know he’s a ghost but he’s kind of an ass. I can’t give too much away or it will ruin the story but he’s definitely no romantic hero so I’m kinda glad he’s dead. I was disappointed in the direction his character took and that Bailey’s feelings towards him were never really acknowledged. I felt like there a hole in the story there but I can’t reveal too much or it would be spoilery!

There is a love interest for Bailey who we get glimpses of and I assume that we will get to see their relationship over the course of the series. Like I said, this book has romantic elements but it is not a love story so don’t expect a conclusion as it’s not the focus of the story.

The premise surrounding Ryan’s death and subsequent ‘who done it?’, I also enjoyed. I felt kind of like I was watching a crime drama on TV. The feel of the novel is a balance between light hearted and serious. It’s not particularly gory but there are some pretty tense moments, some sad moments and some funny ones too.

I went into the novel with no real expectations and I will probably pick up the next book in the series as well when it comes out. And don’t expect a perfect ending tied with a bow. There are some questions that get answered and many new ones to explore in book two with a new mystery to solve

Cover Reveal ~ The Weight of Life by Whitney Barbetti

“Don’t let go.” Those were my first words to him, as I hung over the side of a London bridge. The words I would soon say again, in a moment that didn’t involve bridges, but something much more fragile: my heart.
 
He held onto me for three weeks, in a time when I needed to be held. Needed to connect to someone who understood how loss tunneled unrepentantly through the fabric of your soul.
 
Although he said he’d stay, we both knew he wouldn’t. I had already survived one loss—I didn’t know if I’d survive another. 
Ames
 
She spun into my life like a tornado of smiles and chatter and everything else I’d long avoided, with a persistence that I admired, albeit begrudgingly. She broke down each neat wall I’d constructed without even trying. Her presence alone caused me to remember what it felt like to smile, to look forward to what the day would bring.
 
But it was only supposed to last three weeks.
 
“Don’t let go,” she’d pleaded.
 
I’d promised her I wouldn’t—but I would. I didn’t have a choice.

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.

He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend–smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he’d done.

Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.

Only it turned out, the man I’d just told off wasn’t the right guy.

Oops. My mistake.

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.

I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?

That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.

Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.

I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.

This was going to be interesting…

“Can one of these five rockstars fill the hole in my heart? Or will I stay broken forever?”

Young, dumb, and broke.

That’s what started everything. With five dollars in her pocket, and everything she owns stuffed in the back of her car, Lilith Goode’s life is over. Done. Destroyed.

Ten words. One text. That’s what it took to change the whole world.

A crumpled concert ticket. A chance encounter. That’s what it takes to start all over again.

Five rockstars. One girl. Six dark hearts, six withered souls.
But can one broken person really put another back together again?

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

(Sex Scene From Copeland’s POV)

I close my eyes, my skin achy and hot, my balls tight, my entire body this ball of energy that craves more of whatever this is, this twisted ball of four fucked-up souls.  We might just be bodies in motion, but there’s something more here.  I can feel it.

The sex was good—it was great, actually—but it wasn’t their be-all, end-all.  No, it was their outlet.  Whatever they did, however kinky, dark, twisted, or different, it was all just an expression of their love, a way to get as close as possible, to keep the blackness inside their souls at bay for another night, another day.  No, the touching, joining, rubbing of their bodies wasn’t the answer to all their problems, but it was the symptom of their solution.

I blink past the swirl of literary porn inside my head and drive myself into Lilith harder, deeper, rocking the couch and everyone on it with each thrust.  A single movement of my hips drives my cock into Lilith, slides her pussy along Ran’s shaft, pushes Muse deeper into her throat.  I control the entire thing, moving us in this strange, wild rhythm that shouldn’t work but totally does.

It’s Lilith that comes first, before all of us, screaming and arching her back, her lips temporarily falling off Muse’s shaft as she digs her nails into Ran’s shoulders and shudders around me and him both, squeezing us with her body.  It’s intense and long, but I keep moving through it, even as she tries to collapse, holding her up by tightening my fingers on her hips.

As soon as she recovers a little, Lilith sits back up and wraps a hand around Muse, pulling him back to her mouth, squeezing the base of his dick as she swirls her tongue along the underside, teases the sensitive spot just beneath the head.

I enjoy watching that, moving faster and harder, feeling my pulse race inside my head, my skin tightening as an orgasm builds up quick and desperate inside of me.  Muse comes next, both hands on the back of Lilith’s head as he makes these wild sounds low in his throat, making Ran buck and thrash beneath us.  I realize he’s coming, too, and hold a steady pace, sweat dripping off my chin onto Lilith’s perfect round ass.  Once I drop my gaze down to the joining of our bodies, I can’t look away, watching her take both Ran and me, soothe away some of that darkness in our souls with the beauty of her own pain.

“Fuck, sweetheart,” Ran gasps, shaking and quivering again as Muse stumbles away and collapses into one of the swivel chairs.  But Lilith and me … we’re not done.

Carefully and quickly, I pull out and toss my condom into the trash, putting a new one on and pulling the sweaty crying girl into my lap.  Because she is crying again, and that’s okay.  She can cry as much as she wants.

I swipe a tear away with my thumb as I pull her onto my shaft, filling the space where Ransom just was and curling my arms around her waist as she rides me.  Those hunter green eyes finally meet mine, searching and tearing through me, asking me what secrets I have to uncover, making me actually want to spill them all.

It’s her next orgasm that finally gets me, her body grasping tight, her face pressed into my neck, hot lips against my pulse.  Her bare breasts smashed up to my chest, I groan and we both end up screaming a little, making so much damn noise that Michael comes storming out of the hall to stare at us.

The look in his eyes … it’s pure hunger.

C.M. Stunich is a self-admitted bibliophile with a love for exotic teas and a whole host of characters who live full time inside the strange, swirling vortex of her thoughts. Some folks might call this crazy, but Caitlin Morgan doesn’t mind – especially considering she has to write biographies in the third person. Oh, and half the host of characters in her head are searing hot bad boys with dirty mouths and skillful hands (among other things). If being crazy means hanging out with them everyday, C.M. has decided to have herself committed.

She hates tapioca pudding, loves to binge on cheesy horror movies, and is a slave to many cats. When she’s not vacuuming fur off of her couch, C.M. can be found with her nose buried in a book or her eyes glued to a computer screen. She’s the author of over thirty novels – romance, new adult, fantasy, and young adult included. Please, come and join her inside her crazy. There’s a heck of a lot to do there.

Oh, and Caitlin loves to chat (incessantly), so feel free to e-mail her, send her a Facebook message, or put up smoke signals. She’s already looking forward to it.
