REVIEW: Piercing Ecstasy by Setta Jay!

Setta Jay Banner

I was so excited to be able to review a copy of this book! I love her books. She writes super hot sex scenes and even with a lot of sex inher books, there's still a story line that is fast paced and unputdownable!

Setta Cover*Erotic Paranormal Romance*

After a hellish month of searching, Immortal warrior Jax and his brethren, the Guardians of the Realms, are nowhere near finding the sleeping God who was stolen by their enemy. As if that isn't problem enough, after millennia, other Guardians are dropping like flies to the mating frenzy. Jax never dreamed he could be next. After all, he’s too flawed, his sexual appetite too insatiable to ever be completely fulfilled by one being. Could a lone female even handle his needs let alone quench his never ending desire?

Ileana lives a solitary life in the shadows, a ghost thirsting for vengeance. A warrior Ailouros, half cat, whose sheer existence has been kept secret by a special ability no one can know exists, she is closed off and trusts no one. After thousands of years spent in near isolation while hunting her prey, she has finally found a clue leading to the location of her enemy. Revenge is at hand.

When a fantastically hot Guardian unknowingly puts himself in the middle of a deadly intrigue, nearly ruining her careful plans, Ileana is forced to make a choice. Her one chance at finding vengeance will hinge on hurling them both into piercing ecstasy.

Warning: This book is intended for an adult audience. There are dirty talking Guardians with bad language, some violence, and explicit scenes hot enough to give you cat scratch fever.

BLOG TOUR: Parting Chances by Caylie Marcoe!

Welcome to the blog tour for Parting Chances by Caylie Marcoe!!!!

I was very honored to be able to review this book for the author. I love her work and you can't go wrong with one of her books! So without further ado, check out the deets to the book!

The road of Haley Cavanaugh’s life has been filled with cracks, potholes and detour signs. Her mom’s cancer forced her to grow up too fast and her brother has moved across the country instead of sticking around when she needs him most. Now, her parents are forcing her to move out. They say she needs to follow through with the plans she’s set for herself, but Haley is torn between her dreams and her family’s reality. The only thing she has to look forward to is living with her best friend, Kyler.
What she doesn't need right now? Eli Park. Haley remembers him as Kyler’s boyfriend’s geeky roommate, but he’s anything but geeky now. Now, he's downright hot. And Haley cannot get him out of her head.
It would be easier if they didn’t have class together five days a week. Or have weekly study dates. And if she didn’t spend way too much time with Kyler at Eli’s house. But, the closer he gets and the harder she falls, the more Haley pulls away. Her heart is too fragile to end up broken on the side of the road. She thinks she’s got it under control until Eli brings home another girl and Haley realizes what she has to lose.
As Haley’s life is turned further upside down, will she be left to pick up the pieces of her heart alone?

REVIEW: Bringing Home the Bad Boy by Jessica Lemmon

Recently I had the honor of reading, what I consider, the best book ever. I know it's only January, but I feel I can safely say that I've found my best book of 2015. This was my first book by author Jessica Lemmon, but I can also say that I'm now a huge fan and she definitely goes on our Authors to Stalk list (in the most loving way of course)! 

This was a book that had me ignoring my computer, phone, the blog and even family. I was in a bubble and never wanted to come out. 

So, are you curious about the book yet? Without further ado, I present Bringing Home The Bad Boy by Jessica Lemmon

22461480The Bad Boy Is Back

Moving back to the lake town of Evergreen Cove where he spent his childhood summers is his last chance for a fresh start.

Charlotte Harris knows she owes it to her best friend's memory to help Evan and his son find their way again, but she can't stop her traitorous heart from skipping a beat every time she looks into Evan's mesmerizing eyes. Charlotte is determined to stay strictly in the Friend Zone-until a mind-blowing night knocks that plan by the wayside. Now, if they're brave enough to let it, Charlotte and Evan might just find a love capable of healing their broken hearts . . .

Sunday Spotlight: Oops

Riddle me this batman....

What do you get when you have two bloggers, one of whom is in the process of moving and the other is sick? 

Give up? 

Well, the answer is an oops. It's Sunday and due to the aforementioned issues, we totally flaked and forgot about today's post. 

Our bad. 

So, today is an easy one...

Are you the type of reader that loves to binge read or do you need to change it up? 

When Nikki finds a book she loves, she tends to binge read all of the authors books, particularly if it's a series. 

I on the other hand need to change it up. If it's something general like Rock Stars, I'll binge on that subject. But I can't read a full series back to back to back. I burn out and then don't want to read more from that author for a very long time. 

So, what about you, what kind of reader are you?

Emily has the life every woman dreams of.

At 29, she has two beautiful kids, a live-in nanny, housekeeper, cook, and every imaginable luxury in the posh Upper East Side townhouse she shares with her drop-dead gorgeous husband, Louis Bruel. His company, Bruel Industries, owns a big chunk of New York City’s most sought-after real estate, and together Emily and Louis embody the perfect hot fairy tale couple for ten happy years of marriage.

But when Louis mysteriously starts pushing Emily away, becoming distant and secretive, she is forced to search for the truth among the lies, scandal and heartbreak of his past that threaten to shatter her world. What she finds out will test the strength of her love and her vows to the man of her dreams.

Can Emily and Louis rewind far enough back to a time when life was simpler and love was all they needed? Follow their story with the help of some of their favorite songs from the 80’s to discover just how deep and how far love will go.
Meet Louis Bruel

Louis Smile

He's a dirty talker....

dirty talker

“Ninety-five days. That's how long it's been since I last had sex with my husband. I shouldn't be sad or pity myself, right? I live the life! I have a great man who adores and loves me—or did once. Louis works incredibly hard. He has built up his New York-based real estate development firm from nothing to a billion dollar company in less than fifteen years. We have two beautiful kids: Rose, who just turned eight two weeks ago; and Eric, who's almost four. I gave up running an event planning company with my sister to stay home and be there for the kids and Louis. My husband wanted me to always be available for him. We live in New York City the majority of the year. Our Upper East Side townhouse was once an embassy and takes up a good half of a city block. If I walk a few feet to the right, I'd be in Central Park, and if I take a few steps to the left, I'd be on Madison Avenue, the shopping mecca for the rich and famous. 

I have need for nothing. I have a live-in nanny, a housekeeper, a cook, a driver, a masseuse, and a trainer. However, I would give it all up to have my husband want me like he once did. I'm twenty-nine years old but I feel like I'm eighty. You couldn't tell I suffer from depression and self-loathing by looking at me. On the outside, I'm glowing and happy. I'm skinny thanks to André, my personal trainer. I look twenty-one thanks to Botox and my mom, who's a dermatologist and keeps my skin looking young and flawless. Bergdorf Goodman keeps me dressed like a movie star and yet neither Hermès nor Van Cleef can put a genuine smile on my face these days. 

Some who don't know me would say Emily Bruel is just another spoiled little rich bitch. Well, that's why I keep my mouth shut. I don't complain. I take it as it comes and yes, I thank my lucky stars. But I'm starting to think that if I keep going at this pace, I'll lose the love of my life. My husband is the one and only Louis Bruel. He was once deemed New York's most eligible bachelor; now they call him “The Baron of New York Real Estate.” He, like the rest of the world, seems to be oblivious to my dissatisfaction with our love life. He works fourteen-hour days and comes home to the picture perfect family he created. He has provided lavishly for us, and as I already mentioned, we need and want for nothing. Except, of course, the need I have for him to stop ignoring my existence. 

When we first met, I was an eighteen-year-old nobody. He was almost thirty years old and very much a somebody. How could I not fall madly in love with the wonderful Louis Bruel all those years ago? Lord knows, every woman who sets eyes upon him still does! Why should I be any different? Besides his obvious sexy good looks, he has this animal magnetism, a kind of swagger that attracts anything in its path. I will never forget that magical night eleven years ago when I first laid eyes on Mr. Louis Bruel. I can see it all play out from the very start. If I close my eyes and rewind, it seems like yesterday.”

i love you

my wife 

“Nothing really to tell, what you see is what you get.”I am every woman out there that has fantasies in her head. I am a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, a wife, a lover, a mother, and a friend. I happen to also be a Doctor of Pharmacy and a business owner by day, and now a writer by night. Writing and reading help me escape the scary world we live in. I hope my stories help readers experience many different emotions and ultimately, I hope I make them smile… Writing keeps me sane. I hope reading does the same for you.

Sunday Spotlight: Girl Power or Doormat Heroines...where do you fall in the debate?

Hey all! So I have to take a minute here and talk about something that I'm sure is a popular characteristic when it comes to heroines for a lot of people... For me however, it's just the kind of heroine I tend to want to avoid in my romance novels. I'm talking about overly independent heroines. I know, I know... Just thinking about a heroine with that particular quality probably has you pumping your fist in the air and shouting "Girl power!"  ...I'll be the one on the sidelines rolling my eyes, of course. 

Now don't get be wrong here... I think it's great for a heroine to exhibit resilience and courage... To an extent. It's just when that independence is taken to the extreme that I'm throwing my Kindle across the room. Your man cheats on you and you throw him to the curb? You go girl! There are some things that just need to be handled with a certain amount of toughness to get the point across. But when a hero has everything going for him and tries his best to land the girl, but she's too busy fighting him at every turn and throwing her independence in his face at every turn, then that's when I start to have a problem with this particular characteristic. 

I may be a bit biased here, since door-mat heroines are a classic and an absolute favorite of mine. After-all, when I first started reading it seemed heroines were emerging from an age where they almost always used to be the virginal, sheltered, inexperienced woman who fell hard for the hero who didn't see her for what she was truly worth. Perhaps that's why I tend to gravitate to those types of heroines more these days. I can however, appreciate a heroine who can take care of herself. Yet, I see a lot of authors these days taking independence to an entirely new level. It's as if the heroine constantly has something to prove and is on the defensive from the moment she's introduced. I love an alpha hero- Hell, who doesn't? So what I don't like doing while reading, is scratching my head and wondering "Who really has the bigger balls here?" I'd prefer my hero to portray the most dominance in the relationship, thank you very much. 

I love door-mat heroines most, yes. But that doesn't mean I only enjoy heroines if they're weak and are constantly trampled on. I can appreciate a strong female lead... Just as long as they aren't constantly trying to prove how strong they really are. When I think of a true independent heroine, I expect them to be the type of character that knows that they're smart and can take care of themselves and make decisions for themselves, but at the same time doesn't have an issue asking for help when they need it, or recognizing a good thing when they see it. Too many times I've come across books where the heroine spends the majority of her time fighting her feelings for the hero tooth and nail, just because she can. ...Because she's independent and can do whatever she wants because that's what independent heroines do, of course. 

Insert my huge eye roll.

That is what I can absolutely not tolerate. The point I'm trying to make here is the fact that more often than not, it just seems that independence is a quality that can sometimes be taken a bit overboard with heroines these days and it seems to happen time and time again. I'd just like to see a little less assertiveness, and let that alpha hero we've all grown to love take the lead instead. These overly-independent heroines just need to kick off their kick ass boots for a bit, and enjoy the freedom of letting the hero take charge instead!

I wasn’t always this jaded. I had a clear head, things I wanted out of life, and a concise plan on how to get there. For being only twenty-one, I pretty much had it all figured out. Until the day my cousin died.

I spent months going over all the details surrounding her death, trying to figure out how I missed the signs, and the only thing I could come up with was she would still be alive if it wasn’t for one person: her professor. So I transferred to his college, enrolled in his class, and set my new plan in motion.

First I’ll seduce him. Then I’ll ruin him. I’ve just got to stay strong and not let his charm and my emotions get the best of me. Because someone has to pay for her death. If it’s the last thing I do, I’m going to break Noah.

REVIEW: Code Red by Amy Noelle

16049551Code Red by Amy Noelle
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

After getting hurt in college by a gorgeous man, Nicole Magette vowed never to risk losing her heart again. Now she lives a structured and satisfying life. Her work is easy, her friends are her family, and the only consistent men in her life are her two cats, Winchester and Huntington Peabody the Third. She doesn't date, and she hooks up only with losers—men she has absolutely no risk of falling for. But if she finds herself in danger, she has her old fail-safe in place—the Code Red.

In college, she and her four best friends came up with the system as a way to keep away the good-looking bastards that might worm their way past their carefully constructed walls. Seven years later, three of her friends have succumbed to their last Code Reds and are happily married. Now it’s just Nicole and her closest friend, Jen, who are still on their own, and Nic is just fine with that.

That is, until Joshua Daniels is transferred to Nicole’s office from New York and assigned to work with her on a special project. He's everything she's avoided and everything she claims she doesn't want, so why can’t she get him out of her mind? He's persistent, dangerously handsome, and sexy as sin. In other words, he’s her worst nightmare. She turns to her friends to help her resist Josh’s considerable charms and the inescapable draw she feels every time she gets near him. Can the Code Red save her this time, or will Josh send her perfectly balanced life into chaos?

REVIEW: Debt by Nina G. Jones

23163343Debt by Nina G. Jones
My rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Book Description: 

I don’t know what I was thinking when I hired someone to attack me. Maybe I was bored, or lonely, or there was a void so deep inside of me that I needed something explosive to fill it. 

It was supposed to be safe. A thrill. A way to break through the monotony of everyday life. It was an illusion of danger that I could walk away from as soon as it was over. 

Except that it wasn’t. Because I had been in danger long before I ever invited it into my life. 


My mission is almost complete. The bubbling boil of vengeance that heats my blood might finally simmer. 

She is the last piece of the puzzle. Once I destroy her, everyone who ever hurt me will have paid their debt. 

It was supposed to be quick and easy, but as soon as I met her it got complicated. 

Very complicated.
