I wish I could tell you that I was stolen.
Kidnapped off the street in some third-world country, sold against my will, while a desperate family back home waited and prayed and talked about me on the news.
I wish I could tell you that, because then you might understand.
What really happened? I walked to my fate with my eyes wide open. But before you say I deserved whatever happened to me, you should know. I was desperate. I was alone. I was afraid for my life. You would have done the same thing.
I thought things couldn’t possibly get any worse.
But then, I woke up in darkness, unable to move. There was only one thing I was sure of: I wasn’t alone anymore.
And then I heard HIS voice...

Playing His Game by Justine Elvira: Review

*Warning: Although Playing His Game can be read as a stand-alone novel, it's highly recommended you read Changing His Game first. Playing His Game contains sex, drugs, and briefly touches on M/F/F. Recommended for mature readers. 

I'm a pretty carefree person. I believe in living life to the fullest, having no regrets and just having fun. This is my outlook on life when Scott Reynolds collides with it. 

It was supposed to be casual and fun. We couldn't get serious because our circumstances wouldn't allow it. My sister and his brother were practically married. Soon, one hook up became two, then five, then ten, until I lost count completely. Our casual relationship became something more... to me. 

How the hell did I let this happen? 

I'm falling for this man and it's becoming a problem. But Scott has his own problems, his own demons. He's dug himself into a hole so deep, and he needs me to help him get out... and I do it. I stupidly do it and screw up my life, my reputation and any chance of changing people's perception of me. For the first time I care what people think of me, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat… 

If Scott weren't such an asshole!

I loved Changing His Game so needless to say I jumped at the chance to review the sequel. And let me tell you I was NOT disappointed! There is so much going on in this book, and I hate that I can't really say much without giving a lot away. First off how embarrassing would it be if your sister fell in love with your favorite porn star. One day your minding your own business diddling yourself to images of a hot man and the next your sitting across from him at a family dinner. AWKWARD! Then....you find yourself wildly attracted to HIS brother and one thing leads to another. 

A lot happens in this story, and it covers quite a bit of time. I love how Justine makes it seem like no time has passed and you find yourself drawn into the story and don't want to put it down. Is Scott a giant douche...or is he a knight in rusty armor? You've got to read this book to find out and let me tell you that it is worth the read. I had serious issues putting this damn thing down to sleep! Damn...now I want to read it all over again. 

I am an avid reader. I love so many different genres of books and began publishing my own stories in 2013. Writing is my release and I love to share the stories in my head with you. When I'm not writing I'm spending time with my children.
*I love the idea of love.
*Chocolate is my kryptonite.
*I want my own HEA.
*Rainstorms bring me peace.
*Sleep is overrated.
*I love alpha males.
*Apple rules my life.

The Rocker Who Wants Me (Rocker Series) by Terri Anne Browning: Review

I thought I had everything I needed in life. More money than I would ever spend in my lifetime. A successful band that traveled all around the world. Girls throwing themselves at me on a daily basis. A kind of pseudo family in the Demon’s Wings guys and Emmie. And then she fell into my life. The second my eyes landed on the blonde bombshell with her sassy mouth and those hot piercings and tats, I knew that I’d finally found someone I wanted for life. 

I fell hard for a Rock God. When it was over, I was left shattered. But I was stronger than anyone—especially my mother—gave me credit for. I picked myself up and worked my ass off to get through nursing school, putting the rest of my life on hold to finally fulfill my dreams. 

When tragedy strikes, Dallas and Axton are thrown together again. Dallas is along for the ride as OtherWorld goes on a three month tour. Will Axton finally be able to convince her that his feelings go deeper than he first let her see? Or will Dallas be left wondering if Axton Cage was just THE ROCKER WHO WANTS Me? 

***Mature Content***

Terri Anne Browning is one of those authors I happened upon quite a while ago. I found The Rocker Who Holds Me shortly after release (I think it was FREE or 99 cents) and fell in love with their story. I have impatiently waited for each book to release and for more of the story to be told. With that being said I have been falling in love with Axon Cage over the last six books and was beyond thrilled that he was finally going to have his story told! And what a story it is!!!!! Terri never fails to blow me away with the thoughts that come out of her amazing brain. Each and every one of these books is in my all time fav rocker book and they NEVER get boring!

Axon is a lot closer to the members of Demon's Wings than his own band Otherworld, so it's no surprise that those band members are all over Ax's book. Not to mention that fact that Otherworld is now being managed my Em, and the sexy brothers sister Nat is their tour assistant, PLUS you have Dallas who was introduced in a previous book back now as the heroine. It's an Otherworld/Demon's Wings orgie!

Ax and Dallas have a lot of issues to work though in order to make their relationship work, and boy do I love watching them work. I may have mostly tired of rocker books, but not these boys. I have possibly read each book in this series several times..what? I love them!!! If you've not read these please do yourself a favor and DO IT NOW! Don't worry, I'll wait.

Terri Anne Browning (October 26, 1984-) Started writing her own novellas at the age of sixteen, forcing her sister to be her one woman fan club. Now she has a few more fans and a lot more passion for writing. Reese: A Safe Haven Novella was her first Indie published book. The Rocker That Holds Me changed the tables and kicked off The Rocker... series featuring the sinfully delicious members of Demon's Wings. The Rocker... Series has since expanded to OtherWorld with Axton Cage and his band members. Terri Anne lives in Virginia with her husband, their three children, and a loveable Olde English Bulldog named Link.


Angel's Halo: Entangled (Angel's Halo MC Book 2)

Destructive Release by L.U. Ann: Review

Destructive Release is the third and final book in A Destructive Novel Series and picks up where Destructive Choices left off. 

A single grain of sand produces a beautiful pearl. How can something so precious come from something so painful? 

Grief-stricken, Lacey realizes reality has caught up to her. 

Her silence has kept her trapped as if she was a frightened little girl. When Lacey finally speaks up, what she unburies will forever haunt her. 

The choices she makes only seem to hurt those she loves. When Lacey tries to stand up for herself, she faces a choice. A choice she will be forced to live with for the rest of her life. 

If life hands you more grief than happiness, and the guilt of letting someone down consumes you, what will it take to move on? 

When sorrow threatens to drown her, will Lacey triumph over her inner demons to discover her own pearl?

The Destructive Series is something I've been working on reading since the first one came out. The first book threw me in that I just didn't understand how we could have a hero who sucked so hard. It's one of those stories that you have to remind yourself that though the heroine made some really stupid decisions...you have to account for her age. When thinking what to put in my review for Destructive Release I thought that my first reaction said it best. So, I'm going to copy and paste the PM I sent to LU Ann the second I finished. It's been slightly altered to remain spoiler free :) 

One of the things I love most is that everything didn't need to be perfect for it to be a beautiful story. Life is fucked up most of the time and you don’t have to have it all fall in line to love the life you have. It’s the people in it that make it beautiful, not how “perfect” they are.

I seriously can’t say how much I loved this story. It was a beautiful end to a beautiful story. And I have every confidence that Lacey will have a happily ever after…it just won’t come from a Disney movie. 


Destructive Silence, Based on a True Story (A Destructive Novel Book 1) 

Author L.U. Ann recently moved to Colorado from the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband and two children. Life in Colorado is so much different. In Maryland, you would find her in the garden tending to her vegetables and flowers, sea glass and shark tooth hunting once a week, and enjoying the kids swimming in the backyard. Her life took a drastic change when her family moved to their own "Little House on the Prairie" at an elevation of over 6,000 feet above sea level, and a semi-arid climate that makes it hard to grow anything. While barely anything can grow where she resides now, the wildlife makes up for it. Mountain Lions, and coyotes, and rattlesnakes, oh my!
She tries to spend a little time each day writing, but domestic chores around the house usually take precedence. She would much rather hide them from her husband. She tends to her loving four-legged children who at times become much too demanding when she locks herself in the office. This often results in MORE domestic work, and she finds herself cleaning up after their deviant behavior.
At night, you'll find her begging the kids to go to bed so that she can catch up on the latest book before her sister can. Yes, she is an avid reader who escapes her chaotic but wonderful home to the feisty depths of romance land in search of her newest book boyfriend. Shh, don't tell her husband!
She is an artist by the grace of God. She worked as a set designer for six years, helping establish a local children's theatre where she was the scenery artist, set, and prop designer. Before that, you would find her covered in paint, so engrossed in painting a mural that time didn't exist. Graphic design is her guilty pleasure.
Destructive Silence is her debut novel. It is one of three books in The Destructive Series. Each book will hit its reader with lots of angst hoping for a happily ever after.

Indebted by Pepper Winters: Blog Tour Review & Giveaway

Title:  Indebted
Series:  Debt Inheritance, #1
Author:  Pepper Winters

Release Date:  August 18, 2014

*** Purchase Indebted ***

“I own you. I have the piece of paper to prove it. It’s undeniable and unbreakable. You belong to me until you’ve paid off your debts.”
Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Being the first born daughter, her life is forfeit to the first born son of the Hawks to pay for sins of ancestors past. The dark ages might have come and gone, but debts never leave. She has no choice in the matter.
She is no longer free.
Jethro Hawk receives Nila as an inheritance present on his twenty-ninth birthday. Her life is his until she’s paid off a debt that’s centuries old. He can do what he likes with her—nothing is out of bounds—she has to obey.
There are no rules. Only payments.
A modern day Dark Erotic Romance

EXCERPT - Meet Jethro & Nila

Nina's POV

Huge disappointment, Ms. Weaver.” His cold glare sent a snowstorm wiping away the bonfire in my belly. “I’m done playing games, so cut the bullshit. Time to begin the day.” His voice gave no room for interpretation. A cold draft shot down my back.
My brief reprieve from debts and horrible Hawks was over. I’d been shown something I desperately wanted, but denied it because I failed to please him.
“You could teach me…show me how…” I couldn’t make eye contact with him. Mortification painted my cheeks for both admitting I was clueless and asking a monster to coach me.
Jethro laughed. “You think that will save you from what’s coming? Was that your little plan? To make me fuck you in the hopes I might feel something for you?”


Jethro's POV

I stood up slowly, clicking my tongue. “Ah, ah, ah, Ms. Weaver. Don’t take that tone with me. You’re the failure. You’re the prisoner. You take what I give you. You do not assume to have any say or authority. That includes listening to everything I deem important to tell you.” Ghosting to a stop in front of her, I murmured, “Is that quite understood?”
I flexed my muscles, welcoming back the soothing chillness of control. I hadn’t liked stepping outside my confines of civility. Things got messy when silence was disrupted. Things got rushed when tempers rose and curses flowed.
And I didn’t want to rush her undoing. I wanted to savour it. Devour it.

Torture!  That's what this entire book is... sweet, beautiful, and delicious TORTURE…… a major dick tease.  I just wanted Pepper to put it in and finally fuck me for crying out loud. This is filled to the brim with sexual frustration and tension.  It’s utterly fabulous!

The blurb tells you exactly what you’re getting yourself in to.  So I don’t see the need to rehash any of that.  But if you asked me what the story is really about, I’d tell you POWER… sheer power.  This quote explains Indebted to a tee!

“Power wasn’t threats or uncivilized fighting.  It wasn’t brawn or hard-won arguments.

Power was holding something so absolute, a man would do what he was told–all the while cursing your very soul.  True power wasn’t wielded by gangs or even loudly-spoken governments.

True Power.  Limitless power–only grace a fair few.  It gave those lucky few the ability–the nobility, to be courteous and polite.  All while holding their fucking balls in their hands.”

The Hawk name is legendary, and Hawk men wield an inordinate amount of control and influence.   But, Hawks taking the Weaver women to cover an age old debt???  What???  That is just so ancient and barbaric. I just don't understand how the debt could have lasted AND been enforced for so long.  I know the entire point of the story isn't the backstory of the debt, it’s about power and the relationship between Nila and Jethro; but, the whole debt thing just bothered me because I couldn’t comprehend it.  Ok ok. I admit it. This started out looking like a 3.5 or almost 4 stars for me because of the whole "debt" thing but by the end....OMG, holy shit this proved to be more than a 5 star read!

Jethro Hawk is sexy and dangerous.  He turns controlling and manipulation into an art form.  The man is a hunter and poor Nila is his unsuspecting prey.  He’s the man you love to hate and hate to love.  Surprisingly, Nila turned out to be a great heroine.  Just like Jethro, Nila's naïveté got on my nerves, but she intrigued me and I genuinely liked her. She was weak yet strong, timid yet bold.  Even after she fully understands the direness of her situation, Nila isn’t afraid to challenge Jethro and the rest of the Hawk clan.  Her feistiness and intelligence is refreshing. 

It is said that actions speak louder than words, but after reading Indebted you’ll realize just how powerful words can be.  While this first installment doesn’t have as much “dark” as I expected, Pepper Winters surely managed to instill fear and uncertainty in me with mere words. The sense of foreboding this story is wrapped in is absolutely phenomenal.  Just through Jethro's internal thoughts and outward dialogue, knowing what was to come for Nila set me on edge. It was a mix of fear and, oddly enough, excitement. Pepper's ability to elicit such strong feelings and emotions from a reader is simply exquisite. There is no better reading experience than when you intimately feel all of the emotions of the main character.

Beware, this book is a vacuum.  It will suck you in.  Make sure you have the time to devote to this when you start it because you are not going want to put it down until you get to the very last word.  The family secrets and the hints of horrible things kept me on the edge of my seat. I was literally yelling "get it over with already, I can't stand not knowing. OMG this is sheer delectable torture".  I. COULD. NOT. PUT. THIS. DOWN.  I was reading a furiously ridiculous pace and devoured this in no time at all.

With Indebted, Pepper creates an unbelievable air of anticipation and fear of the unknown. It's palpable and borders on tangible. It's simply amazing that she has the ability to transport the reader to another realm. When I read a Pepper Winters book, it's as if nothing around me exists outside the world Pepper has created between those pages.  Clearly, Pepper Winters was born to write.  Her words are beautiful, elegant, and unlike anything else. She truly is a gift to readers.

I guess I should have done my homework before I opened the first page.  It was a Pepper Winters book so I never saw the need, but I’m certainly rethinking my decision.  It’s no secret that I love serials, and I love cliffhangers.  I knew Indebted was part of a series, what I didn’t realize is that it will be 6-7 books!!!  OMG.  That is just plain mean and torturous.  6-7 books????  I seriously don’t think I can’t wait for the next book for the next six if they end like this one did.  Oh yah, and that cliffhanger….. yes, I love them but this time I’m mad!  I need to rethink shelving the remainder of the series until at least the next 3 or 4 books are already out.  But, I know that probably won’t happen because Pepper Winters is always my downfall.

Break the Sky by Nina Lane: Review

 A sizzling hot, new SPIRAL OF BLISS spin-off novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nina Lane

"Do you ever let go, storm girl?" he asked. "Ever lose control? Ever surrender?"
"Never," I whispered. "I never surrender."
A smile of both promise and warning curved his beautiful mouth.
"You will."

Atmospheric scientist Kelsey March is under siege. Her tornado research project is on the skids and she's fighting conflict in her university department. So when irresistible bad boy Archer West suggests a hot, wild fling while he's in town, Kelsey is unable to resist his sexy offer.

Kelsey and Archer embark on an intense, exhilarating affair. But soon their differences and private battles encroach on their desire, and Kelsey discovers she is caught in a storm she can't control...

Did someone say "biker"?!?! I am a huge fan of Nina Lane. She is one of those authors who sucks you into the story and keeps a hold until the final second. For fan's on Nina you'll recognize these characters from her Spiral of Bliss novels. Kelsey March is a friend who we think we know...but we find out in Break the Sky that there is so very much that we had no clue about! Archer is Dean's black sheep brother who we can't help but love. 
Kelsey's struggle is something that most of us know all to well. The battle between protecting yourself and letting someone in. It's always a risk, but I'm oh so glad that Kelsey took it. Also it let me spend a little more time with Archer...who I'm pretty sure is nearly the perfect book boyfriend. He is easily misunderstood and just needs the right woman to steer him down the right path. Oh to be that woman. 

If you love motorcycle riding sexy men with issues and the women who turn them around...plus lots of steamy sex then this is the read for you!!! And while you're at it check out Nina's other books :)

Who I Was by Kasidy Blake: Release Blitz

Lillian Jacobson was a very happy four year old. She had two loving parents and an older brother who put all other brothers to shame. 
Everything changed one horrible night when her entire world was savagely torn apart. Her parents were brutally murdered in front of her eyes and she was left with a bullet wound in her shoulder as a constant reminder of the tragedy. Now she and her brother are living their lives in constant fear; every day a fight for survival. 

After years of relative safety under witness protection, their situation turns from bad to worse. Betrayed by a man who swore to protect them, her brother is taken by the same people who ended her parents lives years before. She is moved to a secure location under the protection of two agents, but a complication arises that she never saw coming. She begins to fall for both men, who are also falling for her. When a letter arrives bearing the ultimatum, “Surrender yourself or your brother dies,” she must find a way to suppress her desires or she may never see her brother alive again.

I am sitting by myself in the corner, looking out the window and people-watching. I have come to enjoy my time alone, looking on as people live their normal lives. It’s kind of funny, because that is basically all that I have, alone time. I guess I should be thankful that I haven’t gotten bored with myself yet.
I sit here in my own bubble, just observing, and if I am honest, I’m envious of the interactions that people have with each other. I don’t develop relationships with anyone other than Parker. I learned at a young age not to let anyone pass my walls; it’s not worth it. So here I sit, with the life that Gessati has forced on me, watching how normal people act with each other. Boyfriends and girlfriends lean in for a kiss. Friends sit across a table from each other, laughing. I purposely don’t make friends, and I will continue to tell myself that I don’t need to. This is who I am now. I am a loner, destined to live out my life by myself. Well, I have Parker, too.
“Gracie, what are you doing?” Parker asks while setting his food down next to mine.
I look at him and give him a smile. “Oh, you know, just a little of this, and a whole lot of nothing, as usual.” He chuckles at me and my “poor me” statement.
“Hey, Grace? There is a party tonight at one of my friend’s houses, and I was just wondering if you would like to, maybe, go?”
I look at him and wonder why he always asks me like he is afraid of my answer. He acts like I am about to rip his head off just for asking. I mean, I will say no, but he doesn’t have to be so scared. I always say no with a smile.
“Oh! Boy, you know, Par-, I, um, I mean, William, I would really love to, but I can’t. I have to, um, wash my hair.” I shrug and give him my best look for “yeah, nice try, never going to happen, I don’t know why you bother”, with a smile.
I had looked out again toward the window, and his tone made me jump. I turn to look at him and his face shows me that he is really angry. I groan internally, realizing why he freaked out. I know he is going to lecture me, even though I didn’t mean to do it. It’s called an accident for a reason.
“You almost slipped again, Gracie. I beg you please, please be careful. We just got here, and I am so sick of moving.” Great, please keep laying on the guilt.
“Sorry, William, I really am trying so hard not to slip, but you have to underst—“ I stop mid-sentence. Well, I think I was saying something. My tongue now feels fat and I couldn’t say anything if I wanted to. I am looking, okay, no, I am staring out the window. My full attention is focused on a boy, no, a man who must be lost. This town doesn’t grow men who look like him, not that I know of, anyway. If they do, maybe I will work a lot harder to keep from slipping up. This man is well-toned and thick with muscles. My mouth goes completely dry, which has never happened to me before, and I am sure I have no idea in hell what that means.
“Earth to Gracie, come in Gracie!”
“GRACIE!” He yells a little louder than needed while shaking me.
“WHAT?!” I snapped back.
“What are you looking at so hard out there?”
“Nothing, absolutely nothing. What were we talking about?”
“Ha-ha, nice try… move so I can see who is out there and who seems to have captured Gracie Holloway’s eye.” Then he mumbled under his breath as if I couldn’t hear him sitting right next to me. “Never thought I’d see the day.”
I slapped him on the arm, and before he could look, the man in question turned around. I froze. I completely froze, and I think I may have just dry-heaved a little. Not because he wasn’t as good looking in the front as he was from the back, because his front is amazing as well. I froze because, well, I know him.
“Shit! Is that Braxton? It is! Damn it, Lil, what did you do this time?”
He did not just fucking say that to me! I am so sick of this. I turned to stare at him and I am pretty sure my look alone could have killed him. He better not say another word about me screwing this up, but if my look alone wasn’t enough, I’ll be sure to inform him how much he just screwed up.
“Really, William? What did I do? I haven’t fucking done anything. For goodness sakes, we have been here, what, a week? In that time have I even so much as talked to another human? No! However, you are mister social and have friends who invite you to parties. Maybe you are the one who screwed up this time.”
Finishing my rant, my eyes dart quickly to the window. My brain starts frantically searching for the last time I saw Braxton. What was it, five years ago? He wasn’t nearly as built and he had braces and acne. I mean, I know people change, but damn!
Parker clears his throat and I look back over at him. He has guilt and embarrassment flashing all over his face, and I feel guilty for yelling at him.
“Sorry, Gracie, I know I shouldn’t have accused you. I am just so sick of this shit. You are right though; I need to be more discreet.”
He then turns to me and whispers, “Didn’t you know? Braxton has joined the force; it seems to agree with him well…” He lets the last word linger while a small smile spreads across his face causing me to groan loudly.
“Look William, I saw him from behind, seriously, I had no idea it was him. I mean, you must admit he looks way different. Besides that, now that he has turned around, and I can see the rest of him, it was really nothing; possibly the way the sun was hitting him or something. Braxton is, well, Braxton. You know he is the same as always; you can add a few new muscles and a badge, but that will just make him worse. I can bet he just thinks he is top shit, which means his attitude has not changed. Trust me, it was nothing.”
I finish my rambling plea, hoping he won’t read too much into my initial reaction to Braxton, and realize I wasn’t looking at him. I was looking to the door directly behind him, waiting for Braxton to walk in. I glance at Parker and see an amused look; a laugh is about to burst out of him. That could only mean one thing.
I just pray he didn’t hear my speech. “Hi, Braxton.” I sigh.
“Well, hello to you too, Chicken Little. What was nothing?”
My body stiffens on its own. He is right behind me. I can feel his breath in my ear, and apparently my body is hyperaware of Brax. That is a new development. I turn to give him my signature glare but lock onto his amazing hazel eyes. How could I forget how mesmerizing they were?
I remember when we were kids and I got a mood ring. I thought it was really cool. Braxton, however, said that it was nothing special because he had mood eyes. Back then I didn’t really get it, but now the colors of his eyes are showing some emotion, one I have never seen before on him. They aren’t the normal blue/green I am used to seeing; they are grey, so grey they could almost be black. I must have done something really bad this time because eyes that dark could only reflect one emotion – he must be extremely pissed off. I don’t understand what I could have done. I am having trouble thinking straight with him staring at me the way he is, so I can’t figure it out. I can’t think back to this past week to even try to remember where I slipped up. He continues staring and searching my eyes like he doesn’t have a clue who I am. Well, I don’t know who I am either, so at least we are on even ground there.
He abruptly shakes his head and stands up. I can’t help but look him up and down – the first look wasn’t enough, it was too quick. His face has sharp lines and his hair is very dark; it’s much shorter than before. I suppose he had to cut his shaggy hair when he joined the force.
He is staring at me while I look him over, and it’s making me warm all over from the inside, causing me to shift uncomfortably in my spot. I let my gaze look past his face; trying to calm my body down, and follow his muscles down his arms and down his stomach. I think I can see a well-defined 6-pack through his shirt. Yeah, it isn’t only his eyes that are making me warm and uncomfortable. I start giggling like a crazy person and shaking my head. Why would someone wear a shirt that tight? I stop giggling when Braxton interrupts me.
