A billion-dollar fashion empire, and it’s about to be mine…

I’ve worked a decade for this. I’ve sold my soul and my reputation. I’ve lived a lie, smiled for the cameras, and hated myself, all for this inheritance. And then … she pops up. A mysterious heir with a rap sheet, combat boots, and a mouth that I want to pin shut with my— It doesn’t matter. I’ve played this game for a decade. I can continue the charade a little longer, keep my hands to myself and her body out of my mind. I can keep my secret until the ink dries and everything is mine.Or not.

With a death of Vince Horace, the fashion world has lost a great icon. Marco Lent has been by his side for ten years and is ready to take over in his place. As his only heir, he will follow Vince’s vision and carry on his legacy. But Avery McKenna throws a wrench in those plans when she claims to be a mysterious heir that no one knew about. Who is this lady in fashion challenged combat boots? All Marco knows is she needs to go.

“I don’t know what I expected, but I assumed, after that night we spent together there would be a small bit of affection between us, a familiarity that might smooth over our interchanges. Instead, he’s an exposed wire, hot with electricity and one step away from lighting everything on fire.”

I would never have dreamed up a story idea as unique as this one. I really was sucked into this story trying to figure out how this all would work out. Marco seemed really likeable to me even though he played the “bad guy” quite a bit. There was just something endearing about his relationship with Vince and all those years they shared together. I truly got the feeling that his heart was in the right place. Avery was just such a mystery to me as far as her motivation at first. She came across sketchy as hell. A little “too” street smart. But these two together? Swoon!!! I loved the banter and Vince’s wicked sense of humor. There were cute little reminders left around that really made me smile. The story really left me with a warm feeling at the end.

I love Alessandra Torre’s way of inserting those smart comedic moments in her story. I always find myself chuckling at some quirky scene that pops up with a crazy name or playful pillow talk. Definitely makes those books worth reading.

Midnight Blue by LJ Shen Release Blitz with Review


Midnight Blue, an all-new sexy standalone from LJ Shen is LIVE!


Midnight Blue

Author: LJ Shen

Release Date: January 18th

It should have been easy.

I needed the money. He needed a babysitter to keep him from snorting himself to death.

I was cherry-picked especially for him. Responsible. Optimistic. Warm. Innocent.

The worst part is that I should have known better.

Alex Winslow. British rock star. Serial heartbreaker. Casanova with whiskey eyes.

“Don’t get near the devil in a leather jacket. He’ll chew you up and spit you out.”

Sounds familiar? That’s because it was a headline in a tabloid the second time he got arrested.

Guess what? I didn’t listen.

I signed the contract.

World tour. Three months. Four Continents. One hundred shows.

My name is Indigo Bellamy, and I sold my soul to a tattooed god.

Problem was, my soul wasn’t enough for Alex Winslow. He ended up taking my body, too.

Then he took my heart.

Then he took my all.

First off I want to start out by saying I absolutely adore LJ’s writing. Her ability to hook you into a story is like no other. So with that being said…. I enjoyed this story. I loved the angst and tension. The flow was absolutely amazing. I loved the way music played so much into the story. Yes, hes a rock star but a lot of rocker books don’t really connect to music. This one did, so very much!

Alex… To be completely frank, was a jerk face. So many times I was like OMG why is he such a wanker!? But… By the end he redeemed himself. Hes an addict. Plain and simple. Dead set on revenge. Giving no fucks on who he takes down with him. At times I felt he was really selfish and others I was amazed at how completely unselfish he was. He baffled me a bit. But not in a bad way. In a wtf is going to do next kind of way.

Indie is a innocent little thing. She needs a job to take care of her family so she works her tail off to make sure they will be set. I did enjoy the way Alex dirtied her up. But she was so innocent compared to him I was worried for her sanity. But this woman held strong and didn’t give in. She fought for what she wanted.

This was a good read. The twists and turns kept me on my toes. I had to finish it in one setting to see how it played out.

Dang! What a great book! I loved Quinn and Alex. So much intense chemistry from the very first meeting. That kept me going non-stop until I finished the book. The pages flowed easily for me.

Quinn is all fine and good until an outspoken Alex comes into her life. Boy when he does…he rocks her world to its core. She is taken though. This is where I had an issue with the story. I just wanted to shake her and be like wake up, woman! But…all worked out how it was meant to.

Alex is a damaged soul. He’s been through hell and back but he’s the type to make the best out of everything. He is easy going and light. I loved his humor and banter with those he considers friends. He’s super thoughtful and caring. And alpha as hell.

This was a great read. I wanted more! Nina Auril has quickly became one of my must read authors. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

Rules of Engagement by Lily White ~ Release Blitz w/ Review


hacker at work with graphic user interface around


Rules of Engagement Final Cover
Rule No. 1: Do not enter the game unless you intend to finish. Once accepted, there is no escape.
This is a love story, one that comes with rules, expectations, and dark shadows. One where the man who challenges me the most is cloaked in deception. I had no choice but to accept the terms, nowhere to run once the clock started ticking.
Donovan Stone was a man few people dared to cross.
He was dark.
He was dominating.
He was so silent that you had to watch him closely to begin to know what he was thinking.
He was my boss, and the man I should have run from the minute I walked into his corporate office.
Like any bad decision, it took time for me to see the truth about the game I’d entered, for me to understand that it wasn’t the stalker in the shadows I should fear, but the man who pulled the strings.
I had no choice.
At least, that’s the lie I told myself to forgive my foolish actions.
And while running as fast as I could through twisted mazes and deceitful games, I understood that the Rules of Engagement were now my life.

When Mia loses her job she finds herself sucked into a dark reality game willing to do almost anything for money. Her new boss is a mystery and darkly intimidating. Her co-worker Jackson comes across as both accommodating and resentful. Thrown into a hostile new workplace with rules she doesn’t quite understand, Mia tries to navigate this sadistic game while trying to grasp that this was not only a game but her life.

“That’s why I was barely able to stand seeing her smiling at another man, to see her speaking with him so freely while in my vicinity. She should have known her shadow was present, she should have somehow been aware that her true predator lurked. But still, she smiled at him and talked, flirted and even allowed him to touch her.

I couldn’t allow it, so I’d found a way to remind her that I was there, that despite her safety she felt, she was never truly safe.”

4.5 Stars of Whoa! I did not want to put this book down and was “engaged” from rule number one! My mind was running all over the place with this story. Mia is a timid woman that has just lost her job and on the verge of losing her apartment/independence. When you are in a desperate situation, sometimes you are willing to do unexpected things. What a crazy, sadistic game she found herself caught up in. Many times I would catch my breath just like when you watch a horror movie and yell at Mia “don’t do that!!!!” Of course, the dummy doesn’t listen to me. I loved how you never quite knew who to trust and the budding attraction between her and Donovan. Everything seemed “off” about her newfound employment and the creepy incidences that kept happening to her. I felt like I was being thrown off balance just like Mia. And just like that…I was sucked into Mia’s world from the first rule until rule number ten.

I’m never disappointed when I read anything by Lily White. I love how her mind works and thinks of these crazy situations. Definitely makes me think twice about who is watching me or working with me.

I knew going in these books would probably be on the insta love side. Or at least insta lust. Which is a okay to me. I liked that it was a fast paced read with little drama. I liked that there was just the two of them and a friends to lovers dynamic. It really set the tone for this series and I look forward to more.

This book introduced A LOT of characters and in a way prepped for each book to be started with them. This for me was a bit confusing with so many people in and out. I did have to stop and read back but after that the flow was amazing. All of the characters were super dynamic and played a vital part in this story.

Down on Me really laid the ground work for the rest of the series, and as I said before I am looking forward to it. The sexy men and sassy females are super fun. I love that its a lighter read and I wasn’t biting my nails off. I could just set back and enjoy it. Feel good read all the way!

What he promises feels too good to be true…

Casey Doe didn’t have the easiest start in life. As a baby, she was left at a church addicted to crack cocaine thanks to her mother who abandoned her. She bounced through the foster system until fate brought her in contact with Tyler who whisks her away to a mansion. It’s like a fairytale. Being with Tyler and his brother Torin confuses Casey. She doesn’t know if she should trust this fairytale ending or does Tyler have some ulterior motive?

“She’s different. Beautiful and perfect and mine. But is she? I don’t understand how her mind works. When her blue eyes glitter with emotion, I don’t know what goes on inside her head. I want to cup her cheeks and beg for explanations, but I never do.

Tyler thought I could love her.

I don’t even know what love is.

But I could breathelicktastetouchsmellfeelher.

I could do that all damn day.”

Sigh…this story was just a beautiful breath of fresh air. The relationship between the two brothers is so sweet and heartbreaking at the same time. Tyler not only shows his protectiveness for his brother but for Casey as well. What I love most about this book is how different this story is. We have two brothers that are strongly bonded and rely on one another and the girl who can fit right in…like a puzzle piece…she was made to complete their family. I cried and laughed while reading this book and gasped at the twists. So touching and well worth reading.

If you haven’t given K. Webster a try yet and love a great emotional story, this is one I highly recommend. I had no idea what the book was about when I started it and going in blind is the way to go. Start it now!

Sex not Love by Vi Keeland ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn’t dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.

It’s just sex, not love.

But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

If there’s one thing I know for certain, its that I can never go wrong with a Vi book. It’s just not possible. From the first page to the last I am hooked. Forget the laundry, dishes, and other house stuff that needs to be done. When Vi releases, I’m settling in for the duration. There are so many things I loved about this book. The chemistry, sexual tension, but most importantly, the story. I love love love this story. There is literally nothing that I disliked about it.

Nat is a sassy woman. Granted she’s been though hell and back due to her ex but she still wants to have some fun. Stepping up to the plate to take care of things when no one else was there seems to be her forte. And she’s damn great at it. I admired her strength and courage so much. When all she wanted was a fun night, she never dreamed a talk dark and handsome man would knock her world off its axis. But that’s just what this woman needed. I was absolutely giddy when Hunter came into the story.

With his filthy mouth and obvious sexual attraction to Nat, Hunter is one book man that will rank high on my list. I mean what’s not to love!? He’s sexy, smart, funny, and so damn dirty I nearly melted on the spot. But more than that, he’s a thoughtful man. He has his reasons for not settling down and where usually this would bother me in a story, I completely understood and would have done the same.

This story is brilliant. While I am always sure that Vi’s words will pull me into every story, I am still left reeling after every one. There’s a reason she’s the best, and this story is just further proof!
