Cover Reveal: Pictures, Lies & Promises [Alaskan Heart Saga 04] by Tiffany Carmouche!




Review (Pictures Lies and Promises)
 
“What a fantastic novel! There were several times that I had to remind myself to breathe! Pictures, Lies & Promises is jam packed with absolutely everything that makes a really good read! Every character & scene is written with such emotion and detail, you totally feel as if you are living the story. There are so many moments where my heart was thumping through my chest & just as many times I felt like it may have stopped beating. There are so many different aspects to this story & so many different directions it could take, you will be on the edge of your seat… and possibly have a few tears on your cheek.”~Nicki Wilson

I had been really looking forward to reading this book after I read the first book in the series! I had the amazing opportunity to be on the Blog Tour for the first book and I'm stoked to be back on the Blog Tour for the second book! Heaven Sent was amazing! I really enjoyed the first book in this series, but I have to say that I loved this book more! I connected more with the characters and I thought that the plot was a lot more structured! Overall, this book was amazing! I couldn't put it down! The plot of this book was full of twists and turns! I was instantly sucked into it! I couldn't read it fast enough! I did have a have a problem with the first book as a lot of it was written with "I am" instead of "I'm" which personally frustrates me in a book, but this book was written much better and a lot of the book wasn't written with "I am"! So, for me the plot was perfect! I really enjoyed it and I loved the direction that the author took the plot in! The characters were as amazing as what they were in the first book! Taron and Ivy were both the main characters and I fell completely in love with the both of them! We meet Taron in the first book and we get our first glimpse of his personality and such, but this book was his book and he was such a different person in it! Finally going inside his head was amazing! He's such a guy! Seriously! I loved how protective he was of Ivy and how much he loved her! My opinion of Taron changed a lot in this book compared to the first book! I loved his protective instinct and I could really see that from the very first moment he had genuine feelings for Ivy! Ivy was such a sweet person! I connected brilliantly with her! She goes through quite a lot in this book, but I loved her determination to protect those around her even if it meant her being in the firing line! She was so brave! I also loved that most of the characters from the first book were back in this book! It was exciting to see them again and see how they're developing! I'm really looking forward to reading the next book in this series and I'm excited to find out who's book it's going to be! I'll definitely be reading it regardless of who's book it is! I'm excited to find out though! I love the cover for this book! It's pretty damn hot and I love how well it suits the book! Big thank you to Hilary for an ARC of  Heaven Sent and to Feisty Girls Book Blog for having me on the Blog Tour!

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Wrecked [Pointe Hope 01] by H.P. Landry!


Publication date: 31st August 2013
Paperback edition: 271 pages
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: Mylie Mier's life is overshadowed by tragedy and heartbreak.
She refuses to settle for Mr. Right Now and is holding out for her happily ever after. Then she meets Damien James.

Arriving in Pointe Hope was the pinnacle of Damien James' success.
He finally had everything he worked so hard for and life is going as planned--until he catches a predator attempting to defile a helpless victim. Mylie enters his life with the all the subtleness of a freight train.

Their connection is instantaneous but Damien is jaded and refuses to acknowledge his attraction. Though mesmerized, Mylie quickly realizes that her savior is a pretentious jerk. They fight their obvious connection, and Damien inadvertently pushes Mylie right into the arms of a sociopath.

Will Mylie live to see her happily ever after or will Damien's callousness force her to be destined to a life that is wrecked?


I'd been wanting to read this book since the cover was revealed as the cover is pretty unique and it drew me right in! I have to say though that I didn't really enjoy the story as much as I was expecting too! I did like it, but I didn't fall in love with it which is why I gave it four starts and not five! The plot of this book did confuse me at times! I felt like there was a lot going on and sometimes I had to really pay attention to make sure I didn't miss anything! The plot also started to confuse me as it progressed! I enjoyed it though! I wasn't expecting the plot to confuse me, but it did a little! It was written really well though! There were also some twists and turns to keep it interesting and to keep me wanting to find out what was going to happen next! Once I started to understand the plot I really enjoyed it! It was full of suspense and it kept me guessing! The characters were amazing as a whole, but the main female character did annoy me slightly! The main female character was Mylie and she infuriated me at certain points in this book! I didn't like that she sort of flirted with other guys when she was really in love with the one guy that infuriated her! She did eventually realise who she really loved, but it really annoyed me that she flirted with quite a few other guys! Apart from that I really liked Mylie! She went through quite a lot in this book and I felt really sorry for her! She was strong though and she held her head high during this book which made me admire her! Damien was the main male character and he was hot! I loved how protective he was of Mylie and how much he loved her! I could tell that he had genuine feelings for her as soon as he met her and to see those feelings develop was amazing! There was also quite a lot of sexual tension between Mylie and Damien in this book! I loved this as it made Mylie and Damien's relationship better and I really enjoyed it! This book was also written from both Mylie and Damien's point of views! This was definitely essential as there was quite a lot going on in the book and it was easier to understand it all through both characters point of views! The secondary characters in this book added a lot to the story! I enjoyed them and also what they all brought to the story! I thought that this book was a standalone when I first heard about it, but then I discovered that it's a series! I will definitely continue reading it and I'm looking forward to seeing where it's going to go next! As I said the cover is quite unique! I'm in love with it and I love how well it suits the book!

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Breaking Nova [Nova 01] by Jessica Sorensen!

 
Publication date: 3rd September 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: Nova Reed used to have dreams-of becoming a famous drummer, of marrying her true love. But all of that was taken away in an instant. Now she's getting by as best she can, though sometimes that means doing things the old Nova would never do. Things that are slowly eating away at her spirit. Every day blends into the next . . . until she meets Quinton Carter. His intense, honey brown eyes instantly draw her in, and he looks just about as broken as she feels inside.

Quinton once got a second chance at life-but he doesn't want it. The tattoos on his chest are a constant reminder of what he's done, what he's lost. He's sworn to never allow happiness into his life . . . but then beautiful, sweet Nova makes him smile. He knows he's too damaged to get close to her, yet she's the only one who can make him feel alive again. Quinton will have to decide: does he deserve to start over? Or should he pay for his past forever?
   
Favourite quote: "You're like my favorite song, Nova. The one that I never want to forget. That I want to play over and over again." 
 
I'd been looking forward to reading this book for a while now! I'm an avid fan of Jessica Sorensen and I always look forward to her next release! Breaking Nova has to be one of the most emotional books I've ever read! It was so dark, but it had a complete bright spot at the end! Well, for one of the characters anyway! The plot of this book was so beautiful! It was full of emotion! I cried at certain scenes and I'm talking bawling my eyes out crying! I think it's going to stick with people for a long time to come! I know it's one of those books that's going to stick with me! I don't approve of smoking weed at all, but weed actually played a pretty big part in this book! People use drugs to forget and that's exactly what the main characters in this book are trying to do! They're trying to forget about their pasts, their mistakes and most of all they're trying to forget what made them who they are! I think the author took a big step in making drugs play a important role in her book! I don't think they're written about enough in New Adult/Young Adult books, so to see this author take that step was really good to see! There wasn't really a lot of romance in this book! There were steamy scenes, but Breaking Nova was more about the characters trying to come to terms with their pasts first before they think about getting into a relationship! The characters in this book were so complex! Nova was a character that my heart went out too! Her life had become a routine and when something interfered with that routine it made Nova get nervous and she would clam up! She was such a scared person, but she went through such a journey and we only get to see the start of her journey in this book! Hopefully in the next book we'll get to see her journey to recovery continue and see her become an even stronger person! I completely admired Nova at the end of this book! She'd come such a long way! Quinton was a character that had been through a lot and he was trying to come to terms with everything! He used weed to try and forget about what had happened and to block out the memories! I think that Quinton was an amazingly strong character, but he didn't know it! He doubted himself and I think that this is why he had such a hard time coming to terms with what he'd been through! All he needed was to have a little faith in himself and he would have went so far! I loved this book was told from both Nova and Quinton's point of views! It made the book even better as the two of them were so similar, but so different at the same time! Every single character in this book was going through something and they all used drugs to try to heal the pain! I really hope that we get to see all the characters on the road to recovery in the remaining books of this series! Why must Jessica Sorensen come up with the best cliff-hanger's ever?! This cliff-hanger was nowhere near as bad as the one for her other book, The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden, but it's still left me begging for more! I'm dying for the next book in the series! The cover for Breaking Nova is stunning! I think it suits the characters and I completely adore it! Big thank you to Jessica for an ARC of Breaking Nova and to Shh Mom's Reading for having me on the Blog Tour!

You never know when love will come along and change...everything.

I had been desperate to read this book since I discovered the author's Facebook page and saw the book cover for Because You're Mine! When I saw sign-ups for her Blog Tour I quickly signed up and was so excited when I got my ARC! This book was amazing! It lived up to what I was expecting apart from one thing! The characters relationship development was too fast for my liking! I would have preferred it to have went slower and then this book would have gotten the full five stars from me! I love a bit of romance, but when a relationship develops too quickly then I really don't like it! The plot of this book was full of sexual tension! It leaked off the page! I completely adored it! The plot was also fast-paced! Seriously! I almost read this book in one sitting and I would have done if I hadn't of started it so late at night! I'm not sure if maybe it was just a short book or if maybe I just read it really fast lol! The plot was amazing though and I really enjoyed it! I would have liked it to have maybe developed a little bit slower though! The characters were amazing! Madison "Maddie" was the main character and I loved her! I didn't like that she sort of used sex to start with until she finally faced her feelings for her love interest! But she was protecting herself and I understood that in a way! Maddie was a girl still trying to find herself and it takes her finding someone she actually truely cares about for her to realise what she wants! Maddie did grow a lot in this book! I loved all her changes! Holden was the love interest of Maddie and he was such a babe! I think everyone's going to have a new book boyfriend! Holden was such a sweetheart! The way he was with Maddie was so protective and so caring! Plus, he was seriously hot! I did find that Maddie and Holden's relationship was developed really quickly! I was expecting their sexual tension to span for at least a few more chapters than what it did, but I was still happy with the direction that their relationship went in! There were other characters in this book as well and they all added so much to the story! I'm also really excited to hear that two of these characters are getting their story told in the next book! I'll definitely be reading the next book in this series! I'll be eagerly anticipating its release and I know that it's about two other characters in this book which makes me want it even more!  The cover for this book is stunning! It suits the book and it's also hot! Big thank you to K. Langston for an ARC of Because You're Mine and to Just Booked for having me on the Blog Tour!

Spotlight: The Devil Drinks Coffee [A Kate Saxee Mystery 01] by Destiny Ford!

A cow suicide, a revolving door rescue, and the birth of a bright purple pig are starting to make Kate Saxee wonder if taking a job in her small hometown of Branson Falls, Utah, was such a great idea. As The Branson Tribune editor, Kate covers local news, which, more often than not, involves her accident-prone mom. Nothing truly newsworthy has ever happened in the quiet town until local teen Chelsea Bradford turns up dead in a Branson Falls lake.

The police rule Chelsea’s death an accident, but Kate suspects there’s more to the story—and she’s not the only one. Two of Branson’s most eligible bachelors are determined to help her solve the crime—among other things. But the small town social network is faster than Twitter, and gossip about Kate’s love-life is quickly branding her the Branson Falls hussy.

As Kate learns more about Chelsea, she discovers that plenty of people are trying to cover up the real story behind the girl’s death—including Chelsea’s parents. Now Kate has to juggle work, men, her mom’s most recent disaster involving a low-speed John Deere Combine chase on the freeway, and fend off the Mormons heaven-bent on saving her soul—all while solving Chelsea’s murder. Dealing with this is going to require a lot of coffee, chocolate frosted donuts, Neil Diamond's greatest hits, and a slew of words not on the town approved imitation swear list.

Review: Through Glass [Glass 01] by Rebecca Ethington!

Publication date: 20th September 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars

Synopsis: Everyone remembered the day the sky went black. The day the sun was wiped from the sky. They remember the wind as it brought in the darkness; the way the earth shook and everything changed.

Everyone remembered the screams as the darkness ate those who were out in the open, those who had surrounded themselves by light, and those who made noise.

Everyone remembered the voice from the sky and the way food disappeared.

At least, that’s what I hoped. I hoped that there was an ‘everyone’ that would remember because I am not sure how many are left, how many survived. Or if anyone did.

I hoped that I wasn’t alone.

I remembered that day.

I remembered because it was the day I became alone.

It was the day that everything was perfect until the monsters took it away. Then the house went silent and the birds stopped singing. It was the day when everyone disappeared, everyone except the boy, the only person I have seen in two years.
The boy I talk to through the glass.

 
OMG! OMG! OMG! This is one of the best books that I've ever read! It was completely epic and continually blew me away! Everything about it was original and completely unique! I haven't read anything like it before! I originally wasn't going to sign up for an ARC of it, but then my curiosity got the better of me and I signed up! I knew that ARCs were limited so when I got an email saying I was getting one I did get really excited! The plot of this book was insane! It starts off quite normal and every day and then it turns dark and scary! It's definitely not for the faint hearted! The aspect of the plot was just brilliant! It was so original and it actually played out like a movie in my head as I was reading it! It would make a kick-ass movie! This book also didn't really have a lot of romance in it and I normally can't get into books that don't have a lot of romance in them, but in this book adventure and the whole aspect of the plot trumped romance! I was quite happy with that too be honest because there was so much going on in the plot already! The characters were so much more then amazing! Alexis was the main character and she was just completely kick-ass! She was seriously awesome! I connected with her instantly and she continued to completely surprise me as the book progressed! My heart went out to Alexis at certain scenes! As a person she went through so much in this book and she handled it brilliantly in my opinion! I cant wait to see how she'll change in the next book! Cohen was the love interest of Alexis and he wasn't really in the book a lot too be honest! Certain situations happen that make him not in the book a lot! When he was in the book though he was so sweet! I completely adored his relationship with Alexis I'm hoping that he'll be in the next book a lot more and judging from the ending of this book I think he will be! I'm looking forward to really getting to know Cohen more in the next book! There were quite a few other characters in this book as well and they all added so much to the story! There were some good characters and some bad characters, but I'm really looking forward to seeing how all the secondary characters are going to develop in the next book! I thought that this book was a standalone when I first started reading it, but it's actually the first book of a series! The ending was quite a cliff-hanger and there was no way the author could have left it there! I'm really excited about this book being in a series and I'm dying for the next book! Now that I've read the book the cover makes so much more sense to me! I thought that it was stunning before I read it, but now that I have read it I can see just how perfectly it suits the book! Big thank you to Rebecca for an ARC of Through Glass!

Indie-Credible Authors Event: Rashelle Workman!

 
Interview with Rashelle Workman!

To start us off is there anything you'd love to tell us about yourself?

I drink large amounts of caffeine and love red velvet cupcakes (in case anyone wants to donate) :).

Are you surprised by the response you have had for your books/series'?

I'm so happy with the response to my books. Am I surprised? Pleasantly so.

For the readers out there that haven't read your books could you give us five words as to how you would describe them please?

This is totally random: Romance. Romance. Love. Romance. Romance. Kidding, but my brand tagline is: Love is Always the Answer. I believe it and write about it in all sorts of genres.
 
Do you have a playlist for your books? If so, what kind of songs are on it?

A little secret. In Exiled, each chapter title is a song from the 80's and in Beguiled each chapter heading is a song title from the 90's. Dovetailed is coming out later this year. Bet you can guess which decade the chapter titles will be from? And I listen to this music. Also, for Touching Melody, the theme song is Titanium (this version):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGoCtJzPHkU

Do you have a favorite quote from any of your books?

This is from Blood and Snow: “Deep, abiding love is discovering something new and wondrous about the other person, even after spending a lifetime together.”
 
Who is your favorite character from any of your books & why?

Oh wow, this is tough. I'm going to say Snow from my Blood and Snow series. The reason is that her growth is huge in the first series and she's going to continue to grow in the second.

Are you currently writing anything? Can you tell us anything about it please?

Oh my goodness, so many things. The next release will be Witch Land from my Cindy Chronicles series. 

Can you tell us anything about it please?     

The Cindy Chronicles is a new story told from Snow's best friend Cinderella's (Cindy) point of view. It combines magic, science fiction, and love - of course.

Do you have any advice for aspiring writer/authors?

Read books. Take classes. Get involved with other writers in your area. Or, at least online. Keep writing. Write 1,000,000 words and mush them together into story after story after story. I promise you won't get anything but better at your craft.

Is there anything you'd like to say to your fans/readers?

I each of you. If I could hug you, I would.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Unintentional Virgin by A.J. Bennett!


Publication date: 20th September 2012
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars

Synopsis: Karma Points is cursed. Cursed with a stupid name and the inability to lose her virginity. She's on a mission to lose her virginity before she turns twenty if it's the last thing she does.

One night, her good friend Eva brings her to an underground club where Karma meets a tattooed bouncer. He’s far from the clean-cut type she normally falls for, which makes her think this finally might be the night she crosses the threshold of womanhood.

Excited, she goes home with the bouncer named Jax and as always, her dreams crash down once again. Jax cannot believe she is willing to give away her virginity to a stranger she met at a club. As the only son with five sisters and a widowed mom, he can't morally go through with it, even though he's never been more tempted in his life.

Unwilling to let her walk away he strikes a deal. Karma has to spend three weeks dating him and then decide if she wants to have sex or walk away.


I really enjoyed this author's first book, so I was looking forward to reading this book! I have to say that I loved this book more that her first book! I felt that this book was written better! I think I felt like this because I preferred the plot of this book compared to the author's first book! I completely adored this book! It was a quick read and I thoroughly enjoyed it more then I was expecting too! The plot of this book was perfectly paced and brilliant! I was drawn right into it and I actually read this book in one sitting! The plot was written amazingly! It was funny in some parts and then pretty serious in others! I liked that mix as it made the atmosphere of the book better and it also made the atmosphere change dramatically as well! The overall plot I thought was brilliant! I really enjoyed it! The characters were also amazing! Karma was the main character and she was such a self conscious person! At the beginning I thought that she was going to actually be a really overconfident person, but she actually turned out to be a really shy person who had been getting sort of verbally abused which made her really self conscious! I did feel sorry for Karma! She thought she had all these flaws when in actual fact she was beautiful! It takes Karma until near the end of the book to realise that she is in control of her life and that she was the better person! I connected really well with her as well! Jax was the love interest of Karma and he showed her that she was beautiful and that she was perfect for him! I adored Jax! I completely adored him! And by the sounds of it he was smoking hot! I loved how Jax was with Karma! He was so gentle with her and he really showed her how to appreciate herself and not to listen to her mother! I loved that this book was written from both Jax and Karma's point of views! I wasn't expecting it to, but it made the book more interesting and also it was quite fun to go inside Jax's head and see how deep his feelings for Karma were! I'm really looking forward to more from this author! I said that in my review for her first book, Now or Never, and this book was definitely worth the wait, so I'm looking forward to seeing what she'll release next! I love the cover for this book! It's so pretty and the colouring of it goes together perfectly! Big thank you to A.J. for an ARC of Unintentional Virgin and to Allison for having me on the Blog Tour!

Cover Reveal: Tempt [Take It Off 03] by Cambria Hebert!



Stranded and alone with not one, but two wickedly enticing men.

Ava arrives at the airport, expecting to board a commercial flight to Puerto Rico. But a plane ticket isn’t waiting for her. Instead, she finds a guy with dark curly hair wearing seriously ratty jeans and holding a sign with her name on it.

He may not look like a pilot, but he is. And he’s her ride.

So now it’s just Nash and her on a tiny tin can of a plane flying over the Atlantic. When a thunderstorm comes out of nowhere, it proves to be too much for the little aircraft.

Ava and Nash plunge from the sky and end up on an uncharted deserted island.

Stranded.

As if that isn’t bad enough, Ava starts to desire more than just rescue—hunger for more than food. Nash is only too happy to oblige… but it seems they might not be as alone as they thought.

And Nash might have some competition in claiming Ava’s body… and her heart.

Cover Reveal: Trusting You [Second Chances 02] by L.P. Dover!

 
 
 
I trust you …

These are the three words that Melissa Ashford wishes she could say to someone; to the one person she can fully give herself to and not worry about being betrayed. Being twenty-eight years old and divorced from a cheating ex-husband, Melissa enjoys her freedom until one night she finds herself indulging in a one night stand that changes everything.

There’s something about the alluring Brett Walker that has Melissa feeling things she’s never had with any other man; feelings that not only scare her, but push her past her limits. Just when she begins to open her soul to this new love their bond is put to the test when jealousies from the past try to break them apart.

It’s not only Melissa’s trust that’s put on the line, but Brett’s as well. Will their love be strong enough to get them through the lies? Will Melissa finally be able to say those three words she’s been dying to say?

Excerpt!

   His lazy grin grew wider. “I wondered if I’d ever see you again,” he murmured in his low, sexy voice.
   I scoffed and tried to step back, but he moved forward, closing the space. Placing my hands on my hips, I said, “Yeah, I bet. Someone like you probably has a different woman every night. I’m pretty sure you don’t even remember my name.” What’s bad is that I remembered his. I didn’t want to remember it, but I did; it was Brett Walker and he was twenty-eight years old, just like me.
   Smirking, he narrowed his eyes. “I could say the same for you. You were the one who left me, remember? Imagine my surprise when I woke up and your side of the bed was cold. You didn’t even say good-bye … Melissa. I must say it was a first for me.”
