✿ Review ✿




Family Secrets is a fast read but a great one!

Cassidy (Cassi) and Brock met when her mother married his father. Cassi was seventeen years-old and Brock eighteen. They feel an instant connection and they start a relationship, a secret relationship. But something happens that makes Cassi leave Brock.
Five years later, Cassi is participating on TV dating show. To her surprise, the guy she chooses to go out on a date with is Brock. Brock is also surprised when he sees Cassi and when she tries to flee he decides that he isn't letting her go again. But how will he react when he finds out why Cassi left?

Family Secrets is an awesome book, with a great story and characters. It is an emotional book that keeps the reader wanting more.

Cassi is a strong woman. We can see how much she changed during the five years she was alone: she transformed from a teenager who only wanted to please her mother to a young woman who does what she loves.
Brock is an awesome guy. He is the kind of guy who knows what he wants and doesn't take 'no' for an answer. When he finds Cassi again, he realizes he should have tried to find her sooner.

Kasey Millstead wrote a great story, her writing is flawless and she created characters that connect easily with the reader.

♡ Blog Tour + #Giveaway ♡ The Test by B.A. Sherman @BAsherman




The Test
by
B.A. Sherman

Release Date: May 1st 2015







The Test opens in what appears to be a hospital room where a patient is being injected with some sort of fluid. In the next scene, Greg, a 17-year-old living in the small town of Parsons, Kansas, is devastated when he loses his mother and sister in a horrific car accident caused by an escaped mental patient.

To put behind him the desolation and loss he feels and also to get road rage drivers off the streets, Greg becomes a cop. He is good at it. During this time, life begins to turn around for him: he falls in love and marries Mica, and finds a renewed passion for life. The family moves to Denver and Greg takes a job as a police officer there.

As Greg works the mean streets of Denver, a dark feeling inside of him begins to bubble up. This unexplainable thing, which he tries to keep buried, erupts with full force and with some deep dark strength, it now controls him.

Greg becomes obsessively driven by this inner voice telling him to go out and kill. First it is road-rage drivers, then anyone whose looks he doesn't like. Unable to control the voice and the urges, he cannot help alienating his wife and daughter, who eventually leave him and move back to Kansas. Greg begins screwing up at work on the force and increasingly getting into arguments. One black night out on a job, he ends up cornered by his own officers and is shot. Evil has been conquered…or has it all just been a test?

















In the small town of Parsons, Kansas, 17-year old Greg is devastated when he loses his mother and sister in a horrific car accident caused by an escaped mental patient. To put behind him the desolation and loss he feels - and also to get rid of road rage drivers from the streets - Greg becomes a cop. He is good at it. During this time, life begins to turn around for him: he falls in love and marries his high school sweetheart and finds a renewed passion for life. The family moves to Denver and Greg takes a job as a police officer there. As Greg works the mean streets of Denver, a dark feeling inside of him begins to bubble up.

Unable to control the voice and the urges, he cannot help alienating his wife and daughter, who eventually leave him and move back to Kansas. Greg begins screwing up at work on the force and increasingly getting into arguments. One black night out on a "job", he ends up cornered by his own officers and is shot. Evil has been conquered... or has it all just been a test?








B.A. Sherman's passion is writing psychological thrillers. He lives in Colorado with his wife and daughter and, when not writing novels, he is a police officer in Colorado. He has been in law enforcement for 24 years. The Test is his first full-length novel.

The short stories and books he writes are based on experiences he's had over the years, with "a heaping spoonful of fiction," he says. He has published one short story, The Truth, currently available on Amazon.com.

When he's not writing and working, Brad enjoys hunting, camping, fishing and skiing. These are areas he plans to write about in the future, perhaps incorporating them into a thriller or two.

Catch #2
by
Ella Fox





✾ Synopsis ✾


Love endures all things.

Darby McKenzie's heart started beating funny the day that she met Trace Chamberlain. She was four, he was five, and that meeting altered the course of both their lives forever.

Trace was born into a nightmare. Before meeting Darby and her family, the only love he ever knew was that of his twin brother. The two of them endured years of abuse that left scars. The permanent kind.

For Trace, meeting Darby was like catching a rainbow. She exploded into his life in a pop of Technicolor that awakened his senses. She wasn't just his best friend — she was his life. His touchstone, his safety, his heart — she was everything.

Darby had been through it all with Trace and her love for him never wavered for a second. But no amount of love could make Trace believe that he was worthy of her. Knowing that she deserved better, Trace pushed her away, when what he really wanted was to pull her closer. Emotionally destroyed and bitter from the back and forth, Darby finally let go and decided to move on.

Sometimes hitting rock bottom is the only way to understand that you need to change. Realizing that losing Darby means losing everything, Trace sets out to fight for the love of his life.

Is it too late for Darby and Trace to have a happily ever after?

✿ Excerpt ✿


"You're playing dirty," he said huskily.

"Who, me?" I scoffed. "Never. What makes you say that?"

He rubbed his hand along the back of his neck as he stared at me, his eyes taking in every inch of my face.

"I don't know, Darby. Maybe it's the fact that you're naked except for a pair of high heels? I don't stand a chance."

"Oh!" I answered with a laugh as I gestured down at my body. "This old thing? This isn't me playing dirty," I assured him.

"You don't think so?"

"No," I assured him. "But this is."

I dropped to my knees without warning, and I smiled as I came face to face with the fact that he had a very visible hard-on.

"This is crazy," he groaned as I ran my hand over his erection.

"Something like that," I agreed.

I worked fast to get his tuxedo pants open, quickly pulling them down along with his boxers so that I could grip him. Gripping his erection, I looked up at him and wiggled my brows suggestively.

"Did you still want to sleep on the couch?"

The pained look that flashed across his face was priceless, and I choked out a laugh as his eyebrows shot up toward his hairline.

"I should go sleep on the couch," he answered huskily. "But I can't."

♡ Release Blitz + #Giveaway ♡ Revelry (Taint #1) by Carmen Jenner @CarmenJAuthor @givemebooksblog




Revelry
Taint #1
by
Carmen Jenner

Release Date: May 25, 2015

Genre: Erotic Romance





✾ Synopsis ✾


Cooper Ryan is living the dream. Between the parties with rock royalty, booze, groupies and performing to crowds of thousands with his band Taint, life seems pretty sweet. There's just one thing missing: the feisty little red-head that took his baby and ran off with his heart. Throwing himself into music is the only thing keeping him sane.

Until a run-in with a nonplussed, package-wielding PA throws everything off balance.

Ali Jones is having a craptastic life. Her grandmother died, leaving her homeless, penniless, and alone, and her boyfriend left her for a tramp who takes her clothes off for money. That's why when she lands her dream job at a record company it seems like it's too good to be true.

Because it is.

Slapped with an ultimatum, Ali must decide if facing the horror of the unemployment line is a fate worse than going on the road with four rowdy rockers hell-bent on making her life misery.

He's adored by millions.

She's not even loved by her cat.

Can they ignore their hatred long enough to survive the tour from hell? Or will their chemistry force everything to come crashing down around them?

✿ Excerpt ✿


My vision is partly obstructed by Ali, but the sight of her head bobbing as she takes him in her mouth is all I need to know what’s going on. Levi meets my gaze across the limo. There’s gloating there—that much is obvious—but there’s also understanding. When you spend as much time together as we do, you come to know your bandmates pretty well. For all his talk, he’s not as big of a douche as he claims to be. He may not ever sleep with the same woman more than once—with the exception of Ali, I guess—but I know he’s not immune to the loneliness our lifestyle creates. It’s strange how you can be adored by millions and yet completely alone all at the same time.

He slides his hand into her hair and closes his eyes, throwing his head back against the seat.

"Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck," he whispers, and then he gathers her hair to the side and shifts her body so that my view is completely unobstructed. I watch as she works her hands up his shaft in time with her mouth. He doesn't attempt to fuck the back of her throat and make her choke on it, the way we both had that first night we fucked her. Instead, his touch is gentle. Reverent.

It makes me crazy, and hot as fucking hell. I shift uncomfortably, adjusting my cock within my jeans. I don't make a move towards them, though I want to. I want to bury myself inside her and mark her as mine, but at this point the lines are so fucking blurred it doesn't matter whom she belongs to. Him. Me. The both of us, or neither one.

I lean forward, taking a glass from the shelf and a crystal decanter filled with amber liquor, and I pour myself a drink, and then I slide back into the leather to watch.

"Play with yourself, Red," he whispers.

"No."

"Do it," I say, and she turns around to glare at me. I can't tell if she's disappointed I'm not joining in, or if she forgot I was even here.

"I don't want—"

"Why are you suddenly so embarrassed?" I say sharply, swigging back more of the scotch than I should.

"I'm not embarrassed. I'd actually rather that you joined in."

"I'm watching," I say, eyeing her coolly over my glass. She scowls at me a moment and then she kneels up, steadying herself with one hand on Levi's thigh. She wriggles her skirt up over her hips and bends over. Everything is on display as she takes him in her mouth again. I close my eyes, not wanting to watch her on her knees in front of him, her head bent low, her full fuck-me lips wrapped around Levi's cock. I feel as if I'm on a ride that's spinning out of control and I can't find a way off. I can't make it stop. And I so badly want it to stop.

♡ Release Blitz ♡



My Soul to Wake is now LIVE!!!



My Soul To Wake
Stain #1
by
Tara Oakes

Release Date: May 25th 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Witchcraft.
Reincarnation.
True love.

These are the things of legend. Unexplained, some even say impossible, but nonetheless prevalent in stories and tales from all cultures and in every land from the beginning of time. What if there is something to it? What if there is an explanation behind the mysteries and bedtime stories? Something beyond words?

SALEM, MASSACHUSETTES 1692

She was taken from him in the cruelest way... condemned, sentenced and punished out of fear of the unknown. How is he supposed to live without her? How can he go on knowing that in this life, by the natural order of things, they will never be together? There's only one thing to do... only one option that will bring them together again.

SALEM , MASSACHUSETTES TODAY

Amelia is taken on a weekend excursion with her best girlfriends to let loose, relax and have a little fun. What harm is there in a little vacation? It's not like the legends, the haunted history of the place can scare them away. It's all harmless fun.

Or so she thought.

Something seems familiar about the town. The trees, the winds, the feel of everything. Her ever present nightmares have become more intense within the limits of the old historical setting. She's prepared to write off the whole trip as nothing more than a case of her mind running away with the sensationalized magic here. When she meets a handsome stranger who's eager to know her in a way no one else can, she begins to think there may be something more to this place, something more to him.

Will has been waiting, biding his time, and praying that she'll come back. He's broken the natural order of things to possibly find her again, weaving their way through the years until they can be together again. He knows he may never find her, but he can't risk not trying. This place calls to her, just as it did to him. It will bring her back home. It will bring her back to him.

What's 300 years when it comes to true love? He's prepared to wait an eternity if he has to, just to see her, hold her, kiss her again.. to make her remember what was stolen from them so long ago. To make her remember who she is, the power she possesses and the love they swore to each other.
