Synopsis

What if your life wasn’t exactly as you thought it was? What if there were secrets you kept—from yourself?

Becca Campbell has no idea her world is about to be turned upside down when she and Grayson return to New Hampshire.

Pieces start flying into place, answering the questions of the puzzle she calls her life. Things finally add up—it all makes sense. All that was lost is now found.

But will she be able to move forward, knowing the truth?

Review

Having read the first book and loved it I couldn’t wait to get started with this and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

These stories are filled to the brim with romance, passion and so much drama, it’s impossible not to be sucked into the lives of these characters.

This book picks up pretty much from the ending of the first with Grayson and Becca on a plane to go see Becca’s BFF Stacey. And from the get go you can tell that Becca and Gray’s relationship is as passionate as ever both in terms of their sexual chemistry and their many arguments.

As with the first book I don’t always like the way Gray talks to/treats Becca or how he snaps at her some times, their relationship is very passionate and intense, with reason as well considering everything they go through and Becca isn’t perfect herself, she has definitely has a temper and is quick to react, but I think maybe Gray’s character could have been tonned down a little when it comes to how he reacts when he’s angry or jealous.

Ray is another character I don’t always love, it is such a confusing “love triangle” between Gray, Becca and Ray. His behaviour sometimes is a step too far for me, just like Gray’s is but then he would redeem himself and I would like him again.
These conflicting personality traits are all explained at the end but while I was reading it was certainly driving me crazy.

Straight from the get go we are thrown into the story and the drama never really stops. This non-stop action continues throughout the book and this is why I have really enjoyed these books..because I am never bored, there are so many twists and turns which keep me
hooked.

I was quite confused sometimes wondering what on earth was happening but then we find out…. and OH.MY.GOD!! I never saw that coming, it’s literally the biggest surprise ending I’ve ever read in a book. I’m still shocked by it all. I definitely shed a few tears as well, the last few pages were some of my favourites of the whole book. They were beautiful and heartbreaking.

I can’t quite give this book 5 stars as there were some aspects that irritated me, like the conflicting personalities of Gray and Ray, the repetitiveness of some words and sometimes the constant back and forth of Grayson and Becca just seemed like too much.
But I still love this story because the plot is just so good, so full of action that no matter what you just want to and have to keep reading. The ending will seriously blow your mind and it actually explained some aspects of the book which annoyed me slightly.

One of the most shocking endings of a book I’ve ever read and overall a really exciting story. Now that everything has been explained I can’t wait for the next book to see where the story goes.

I’m supposed to share interesting details about myself so that my readers get to know me so here we go in no particular order: I’m an natural redhead even though I haven’t seen my real hair color in years, I’m a big fan of tattoos and have a half sleeve on either arm and various other pieces all over the place, I’ve been in the bar industry since I was in college and it has always offered interesting insight into how men and women interact with each other, I have 3 dogs that are all crazy, I live in Colorado and love the snow, I love music and in all reality wish I could be a rock star not a writer or a bartender but I have zero talent so there is that.

I love to write, love to read and all I’m interested in is a good story with interesting characters that make the reader feel something.

Synopsis

Logan West’s life is anything but ideal.

Mindless sex, tedious business ventures, and the occasional poker game keep him occupied, but he only lives for one thing: fatherhood.

Oliver, Logan’s three-year-old son, is his entire world. Raising him alone, Logan finds his only joy in spending time giving Oliver the childhood he deserves. But every other weekend, he allows himself the chance to live as a man—a man with deeper desires. Logan knows what he likes, what he wants, and what he needs. He has no interest in dating and believes there’s no risk worth taking for romance, but his casual sexual escapes rarely leave him satisfied.

It takes an unexpected decision from his sister Julia and a road trip to the small town of Harmony with his best friend, Caleb, to open Logan’s eyes to new opportunities outside his programmed world. Its not what he expects, but Logan’s always looking to indulge.

This can be read as the first in the Harmony series or anytime during the series. It is not a mandatory read to enjoy the series, simply a companion read. This novella is Logan’s story of how he ended up living in Harmony and right next door to the woman that would forever change his life.

Review

Ok, so I didn’t get this as an ARC for review.  This is one of those few times, when I simply read a book for my own personal enjoyment, without the obligation of a review.   This rarely happens anymore.  We are swamped with so many amazing books and I am loving every minute of it.  It’s just, that every now and then, its nice just to pick a book and read it, without taking notes, and keeping track for a review.  But I felt like I really needed to write one, because I heart Angela Graham’s writing so damn much.  I love Cassandra and Logan’s story.

True to the synopsis, this novella can be read before or anytime during the Harmony series.  My heart broke for poor Oliver and Logan at the beginning of this novella.  They feel like family  after reading Inevitable and Irreplaceable, so I knew I was going to take it hard when they were left alone.  I so enjoyed reading more about Julia, Jax, and the sweet but hilarious West family dynamic.  But, as usual, my favorite part of this book was Logan.  Swoon.  That man is sex on a stick and we get some really steamy sex scenes in this little book from him and Caleb both!  Ahhh!  So damn hot!  But, really the essence of this book, was the strange and magnificent fate that brought together Logan and Cassandra.  It was really good.  I cannot wait for book 3!

Synopsis

I used to think that my life was boring. I resigned myself to the rut I was stuck in. Then my entire existence was turned upside down.

In the last six months, I’ve learned things that would get me committed to an asylum if I repeated them. First, I was kidnapped by vampires. Yes, vampires. Sounds crazy, right? My best friend, Donna, became one of the fanged after that little adventure and hooked up with a hot, Scottish vampire named Conner. They’re even planning a wedding.

Secondly, I learned not all vampires are evil. In fact, some of them are downright sexy.

Alexander Dimitriades has it all. He’s tall, dark, and handsome and manages to give me tingles in all the right place and also make me laugh. Unfortunately, to be with him, I would have to give up my humanity and I like being human. Then, there’s the fact that the whole drinking blood thing gives me the heebie jeebies.

To make matters worse, there are plans in motion to change the place vampires hold in the human world. And I’m caught in the middle, between the vampire I’m falling in love with and a group that wants to create a vampire dictatorship, with humans as slaves.

Now, all I want is my calm, normal life back. As my friend, Ricki, likes to say, “Be careful what you wish for because it might come and bite you on the ass.” I hate it when she’s right.

Review

Once Bitten, Twice Shy is the second book in the Bitten Series by C.C. Wood.  The first book in this series revolved around a 300 year old Scottish vampire who falls for Donna, a human. This book picks up in the story line where that book left off, but mainly centers on Donna’s best friend Ivie and Lex, one of the oldest (and sexiest) vampires around.

Now, Lets begin by stating that I am not a paranormal reader. I read the first few Twilight books and stopped, meaning to go back and never did. I wasn’t dying for it and there are always new books out that got  my attention first.

That being said, I read Bite Me (the first in the Bitten Series) because I really loved C.C. Wood Girl Next Door Series and thought it was super sexy and fun! In my opinion, Once Bitten, Twice shy was even better than the first! These paranormal romances grabbed me and kept my attention the whole way through! I loved every second of them and cannot wait for the next in the series!

Meet Ivie

pizap.com13941081167741

Ivie is young and independent and can be very strong willed! She is not super model skinny but absolutely beautiful (although she doesn’t always see this) Being single and always taking care of herself, Ivie sometimes has trouble letting go of control (but somewhere deep inside she has the urges to just sit back and submit) To me, Ivie was an amazing heroine. She is not perfect and makes plenty of mistakes, but she knows when it is important to let things go and when it is important to stand her ground!

When this book starts, Ivie is still in a state of shock over her kidnapping and what they wanted to do to her. She is staying with Donna and Conner and is very hesitant around other vampires. She knows they are not all evil but  still cannot get over her first encounter with them and the fact that they wanted to torture and kill her.

Meet Lex

pizap.com13941082609342

Alexander is a “Greek God”! He is sexy, smart, witty, and powerful. He is one of the oldest vampires and a member of the Council, an organization that governs the vampires. Although he is typically reserved when he meets Ivie he knows she is for him. He can feel the pull between them and just needs her to acknowledge she feels it too!

There is lots of drama brewing in the vampire world and Lex and Ivie have to find a way to be together when he is constantly being called away and she is unsure of how she feels about being with any vampire (especially one as domineering as Lex).  Mix a little love triangle (HELLO Finn) and some BDSM and I am done, just done! LOVED IT!

This book was super sexy, just like the first. C.C Wood does an amazing job of blending sex, humor, and an intriguing story line! I was really into Bite Me and thought the sex in it was some of the steamiest I had read, but I was blown away with Once, Bitten Twice Shy. Lex as a dominate vampire is swoon worthy and Ivie’s desire to submit left my knees weak!

C.C. Wood’s writing has a way of grabbing you and make you not want to stop reading till you cannot keep your eyes open anymore! I just don’t know how I am supposed to wait for her to write Finn’s book now!

The Suicide Princess by Anthony Bryan Blog Tour

 

THE SUICIDE PRINCESS

“Not your mother’s romance, this is an erotic thriller that will leave you breathless and have you begging for more…”Stephanie Bradford is a young, attractive, and successful District Attorney on her way to the top. She has the near-perfect life, with an amazing husband, and she has it all in the palm of her hand. When her marriage falls into a romantic rut, Stephanie is skillfully swooned by a charming, mysterious and intriguing stranger who looks to be the answer to all of her fantasies. A whirlwind and erotic affair quickly spirals out of control, and before long, she learns that things aren’t always as they appear and people are rarely who they seem. One poor decision becomes the catalyst for a series of events that rips her life apart, and Stephanie is left with nothing but the thirst for revenge against the man who viciously stole everything from her. The Suicide Princess is a sexually charged roller coaster ride where nothing is as it seems and everything is at stake!

Derrick leaned forward, inviting Stephanie to climb onto the back of his bike, and he said, “Let’s roll, bad girl.”

 

Stephanie climbed on, and she wrapped her arms around Derrick’s waist as he started the engine and brought the thunderous exhaust to life.
“Oh my God, that’s loud,” Stephanie yelled into Derrick’s ear.
“You just hang on,” Derrick said before suddenly driving through the parking lot and to the main road.
Derrick drove to the highway where he immediately drifted to the left lane and rapidly accelerated the bike to well over ninety miles per hour. Stephanie let out a thrilled scream as they blew past the slower cars. Stephanie yelled, “Where are we going?” but Derrick only replied by revving the motor and driving even faster.
Derrick drove about forty-five minutes west of Boston, and he exited the highway to a secondary country road. The back road rolled through gentle hills and curves, and the forest on either side of the pavement had grown so tall, a canopy of trees completely covered them. Derrick slowed his speed down, as this wasn’t a thrill ride, this was something different. This was an experience to be taken in slowly and not rushed.

 

Stephanie’s arms wrapped tighter around Derrick’s waist, and her hands rubbed against his abdomen and chest as she pressed the side of her face against his back. Stephanie closed her eyes as she felt the breeze blowing over her face, and the mixed smell of Derrick’s natural odor and the fresh forest air was the most intoxicating aroma she had ever sensed.
As the afternoon was wearing on, the sky began to darken from the clouds rolling in. The air became heavy with the smell of rain as the first sprinkle appeared. Derrick pulled off to the side of the road as the rain grew steadier.
As Derrick turned off the engine, Stephanie asked, “Why are you stopping? It’s raining.”
“The road’s going to be slick. I’m cool with risking it by myself, but not with you.”
“But Derrick, we’re in the middle of the woods, and it’s pouring!”
Derrick got off the motorcycle, and he lifted Stephanie to help her down. “It’s okay,” he replied. “Follow me.”

 

Derrick took Stephanie by the hand and he ran, pulling her behind him. He found a large tree which was filled with branches and leaves, and he led Stephanie under it.
“It’s not the best, but it’ll do. It won’t rain long,” Derrick said.
“It won’t be long?” Stephanie asked. “Then I don’t want to waste it.”
Her long brown hair was dripping, with rain falling down her face to her lips. Derrick’s hand grabbed the back of her neck, and pulled her in to kiss her deeply. Derrick stepped forward into Stephanie, causing her to step back until she was pressed against the tree. Derrick’s drenched shirt was clinging to his body, and it stuck to him as Stephanie began pulling it off. Derrick pulled Stephanie in close as he was kissing her, and each press of his lips against hers felt like her very first kiss all over again.
Derrick’s hands began unbuttoning Stephanie’s tiny shorts, and once undone, she couldn’t get them off fast enough. As the rain fell on them, Derrick lifted Stephanie off of the ground. She wrapped her legs around him, and with her back pressed against the tree, he made passionate love to her. Stephanie was overcome with emotion since this was so different from her other experiences with Derrick. This was the kind of powerful, connecting, and loving sex Stephanie had always dreamed of having. I love this man, she thought to herself but didn’t dare have the courage to say out loud.

 

As the passing rain began to let up, Derrick stopped making love to Stephanie. He kissed her gently and she asked, “You didn’t cum. Do you want me to finish you another way?”
Derrick kissed Stephanie and replied, “You didn’t either.”
“This time, it wasn’t about cumming for me,” Stephanie replied.
Derrick softly said, “It wasn’t for me either.”

Review

This story follows Stephanie and her life. Stephanie is stuck in a rut in her marriage to Jacob, she feels that she tries to do things with him but she gets no reciprocation. Jacob is a pilot, so he often travels for work and when he is at home he doesn’t seem to pay Stephanie all that much attention.

 

Enter Derrick, Stephanie meets him in a pizzeria queue. Derrick starts talking to her and eventually gets her phone number from her phone, this is what slowly starts Stephanie’s downfall. Derrick appears as a cocky playboy who knows what it is that he wants, and he will stop at nothing to get it.

“What if I don’t want to keep it clean? What if all I want to talk about is you and your naughty little office girl clothes.” Derrick comes across as very dominant and in control, but he is hiding something.

 

Stephanie decides to confide in her co-worker and friend Karen about the texts and Derrick. Karen doesn’t want to be involved and tries to tell Stephanie that she needs to steer clear of this and just live her life with Jacob. “Look, I don’t want to know any more about it because things like this always end badly. You didn’t go too far, so just stop now, and don’t go any further.”

 

We follow Stephanie as she gets closer with Derrick and starts to pull away from everything else, her work is starting to suffer as she is late or forgetting major things that needed to be done, she doesn’t seem to see anything other than what is happening with her and Derrick. Stephanie gets lazy in her attempts to hide things, she stays out at night when she should be home with Jacob.

 

Jacob starts to suspect Stephanie is cheating on her and confides in a friend who tell him that he needs to have proof before he confronts her, so he decides that he is going to follow her when he has told her he will be out of town working. I don’t think Jacob was at all prepared for what he would find out about his wife, at times you feel sorry for him. Even though it appears in Stephanie’s eyes that he doesn’t care, you can tell that he does and didn’t even realise that she wasn’t happy in their relationship.

 

A night out with Derrick goes wrong for Stephanie and she ends up losing everything that she worked so hard for. The secret Derrick was hiding comes out the day after Stephanie’s world comes crashing down. You find out that he really wasn’t the person that he pretended to be and in fact deserved all that he ended up getting. Stephanie’s life is in ruins and all she wants now is revenge. She wants Derrick to suffer and pay for everything that she believes is his fault.

 

I am glad the ending happened the way it did, although I really didn’t see it coming. There was many twists in this story that I didn’t see coming, but they really added something different to the story. I was expecting this book to be a typical female wants something different in her life, leaves her husband and then moves on with the new guy. I can say I am happily pleased that this wasn’t that case for this book, this was something different than what I thought it would be. But I would completely recommend this book, especially if you aren’t looking for a lovey dovey romance. Well done Anthony Bryan on a gripping read.

STONE COLD TOUCH Synopsis:

Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden.  Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

“Constantly entertaining…the narrative sizzles with as much tension as romance.”

White Hot Kiss

ABOUT WHITE HOT KISS:

One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she’s anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she’s crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she’s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she’s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

So the story starts with Blake going to see a fortune teller, she tells him of his future and he’s queen. “Finding her will be easy. Holding onto her will prove to be your worst nightmare.”

 

He meets Siobhan in the south of France, while she is on holiday with her 3 friends. They chat, get to know each other and things soon progress. “You Si, were made for my touch, my kiss. Your body is made for pleasure. What your body felt was completely natural. And this is only the start of our story.” But on the last day of the holiday, things turn bad for Blake and Siobhan. The last thing he says to her is, “Remember this if nothing else, Si, I love you.”

 

Skip ahead ten years, Siobhan has moved on with her life the best she can. She’s moved away to the countryside and starting a new job to move on from a past relationship. Siobhan has her 3 friends come and visit for the weekend. They go to the grand opening of a club, and who should be there….. None other than Blake.

 

Siobhan tries to resist Blake, but in the end decides to give into her feelings that haven’t disappeared even after all this time. She decides to let things progress naturally between them. Blake takes Siobhan home and lets her know how he feels and they have a wonderful night together.

 

The next morning, Siobhan’s life is turned upside down and everything she thought she knew doesn’t really apply to him anymore. She second guesses his feelings and her own. This happens when Blake decides to disclose his secret to Siobhan.

 

After talking to her friends and to Blake she decides that she doesn’t care about him being a vampire, she can’t be without him. Things seem to be going well for Blake, with Siobhan back at his side. But things take a twist and Siobhan is taken away from Blake.

 

While Siobhan is being held, she endures a lot of different and new physical experiences for her. She decides that this shouldn’t happen and people shouldn’t being doing these things and she doesn’t think she should be enjoying them. However Siobhan decides no matter what happens physically, Blake will always have her heart.

 

Blake aware of the situation Siobhan is being held in, does what he can to help. This is in the form of Jarryd. He is there to help her the best that he can, as Blake asked him to. It is quite hard to read as you see him start to get attached to her.

 

More twists happen in the book, that leave you quite shocked and trying to get to grips with it. The ending to this book is quite sudden and the story is in no way concluded, it leaves you with many questions. I feel that this book had great potential but I personally felt that the amount of sex that occurred in the second half of the book, took away from the story line at times. This is the main reason for the 3 and a half smooches.
