As owner of Dirty Deeds, a tech-savvy company specializing in the age-old art of revenge, Eden Smith knows first-hand that secrecy is critical. But when a dead body washes up on the shores of Lake Michigan clutching her business card, Eden’s well-constructed world begins to fall apart. Apparently, she’s not the only one with a passion for payback, and staying alive to outsmart a killer has become her most important job of all.
 
A Game for a Game
 
Hardened homicide detective Kelly Riordan is convinced Eden Smith is hiding more than she’s willing to admit. Years on the force have taught him that nothing is what it seems, and that couldn’t be truer than when it comes to investigating the alluring owner of a revenge-for-hire business. But revealing her past could put everything Eden has worked for in jeopardy. And trusting a man like Riordan goes against the very instincts that have kept her alive this long.

Cover Reveal for Infinite Us by Eden Butler

 
 
Title: Infinite Us
Author: Eden Butler
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 23, 2017
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
Love is timeless…
 
Nash Nation loves zeroes and ones, over-sized monitors and late office hours. He’s too busy taking over the world to make time for relationships—that is, until his new neighbor Willow O’Bryant barges into his life, and now Nash can’t shake the feeling that this isn’t the first time she’s interrupted his world.
 
Then, the dreams start. And in the dreams—memories.
 
Memories of a girl named Sookie who couldn’t count on love or friendship, never mind forever. Memories of a library and a boy called Isaac and secrets made in private that destroyed his world.
 
The memories seem real, but who do they belong to?
 
When Nash and Willow discover the truth, life as they know it unravels.
 
The bridge between this life and the next is shored up by blood and bone and memory. Sometimes, that bridge leads to the place we’ve always wanted to be.
 
 
 
 
It was the dream. The waking dream again.
There was something tied up in that dream—a memory, the life I knew but had never lived. That was the only explanation.
The dream crawled inside my skull like a centipede. It stayed there, burrowed itself so deep inside my brain that imagination got squashed. Nothing was fantasy anymore. What had been figments of my imagination had grown to something real, something I couldn’t beat away. Something I couldn’t ignore.
It stayed with me during the investors’ meeting, as Duncan talked about projections and media outreach. He spoke and I watched his face, focused like I understood the meaning behind the noise, the unrecognizable words his mouth made. I knew he was expecting me to weigh in with some technical spin, but it was all I could do to keep from completely drifting away.
Lucky for me, he liked the sound of his own voice. Even Duncan and his slick CEO arrogance didn’t distract me from the dream. The sound of his pitch, that salesman shine he thought might impress the investors didn’t do a damn thing to erase what I’d felt. What I’d seen. What I remembered.
The dream stayed even as his nagging turned into a whining drone that made my teeth ache.
“What the fuck was that? You just tuned out. You weren’t engaged at all.”
No. I hadn’t been. Still wasn’t as I fed him some bullshit about a migraine.
“I’ll catch you later, man. I gotta jet.”
He didn’t buy my excuse. Duncan’s eyes narrowed and I swear I felt his stare hot on my neck as I moved out of his office and stood waiting at the elevator. Wasn’t much I could hide from him through that glass wall so I kept my head down, wondering how I’d gotten messed up with that asshole in the first place.
Ah. Right. I had a program and no cash. Duncan had deep pockets and was looking for someone’s coattails to ride. One plus one is always two.
Didn’t much care if he bought the migraine excuse. I felt something right at the base of my skull. A pressure, a dull ache, but I wasn’t sick. I was high.
My brain went into autopilot as I left Manhattan, grabbing the A train to get me to downtown Brooklyn. And the whole way home, with the rocking of the train, the funky smell of the city getting fainter with every stop, and the even worse body odor of all the compressed bodies, the ache in my head grew the closer we came to my stop, that weird memory nagging at me.
That shit wouldn’t let me be.
Over and over in my head, as I huddled tight behind my jacket in the still chilly weather, the memory came clear as a raindrop.
Me and her. Me and the woman I didn’t know. Me as a man I’d never been.
The smell of roses. The thick hint of dust and coffee.
The feel of worn book bindings and the scrap of metal chairs on wood floors.
The taste of honey on my tongue.
The woman wrapped around me, holding tight, like I was her lifeline. Her red hair between my fingers, her nails pulling at my collar. Feeling needed. Feeling free.
A gust of wind blew off my hood, had my eyes watering as I jogged the rest of the way toward my building, barely acknowledging the people grouped around the front entrance. But then the sound of kids screeching cut into my brain, and I finally noticed that Old Man Walker was handing out Jolly Ranchers from the top step; for his grandkids and the others bouncing around, he couldn't get the wrapped candy out of his pockets fast enough.
In that small chaos, compounded by an arguing couple from 3C coming out of the elevator, brushing past the cluster of kids in their red and green puffy coats and their sniffling noses, heels clicking on the tile floor and crackling over the candy wrappers littering the hall, I forgot about the dream. If only for a second.
Until I saw Willow at the mailboxes.
She didn’t look much like the woman in my dream. Her hair was not red, but light brown. The redhead’s had been thick and bone straight. Willow’s was wild, all over the place, as though she could never get it under control.
The woman in my dream had been thin with barely a hint of curve to her shape. Elegant, graceful like a ballerina. Willow was all dips and bends, luscious, her legs strong with well-defined muscle, and a wide, wondrous ass.
Suddenly the rest of the world receded and there was nothing but the movement of Willow’s hair as she dug the mail from her box, the rhythm of her limbs as she swatted at that thick mass of hair, the swoop of her jacket hem against all those round, perfect curves as she turned, her attention on the envelopes in her hand.
The smell of her skin, the jasmine in her hair, seemed to billow around me as I stood motionless in the lobby. She was everywhere, familiar and yet unknown. A stranger/not stranger I had held at arm’s length, but still far more real than my dream, than the memory it was trying to evoke.
Willow stopped short as she noticed me, pausing with the mail held against her chest, a frown appearing on her face. I knew that expression from the last time I saw her, when I lied and told her I didn’t want her, when I had spoken promises that even then I knew I’d never keep.
“Nash.” There was a bite in her voice, the clip of my name, as if she was trying to sound disdainful, yet her voice still held an undertone of something that, if it had a flavor, would have tasted like honey. 
And then the dream, that sweet, stinging memory crashed over me. Déjà vu and fantasy and shit I did not understand hit me like a fever, and I was lost. The redhead kissed my neck. The hint of her soft, liquid tongue against my skin, tugging on my ear, wanting me with a fierceness no one ever had before, overwhelmed me, and I had to close my eyes to keep from being dragged under.
“Nash?” Willow’s voice reeled me back in, and I opened my eyes to see her sweet, concerned expression and the curve of her mouth, the fullness of her bottom lip.
Then Willow... she took the back of her hair in one hand, twisting it into a knot—the smallest gesture that I’d seen her do a dozen times—and suddenly I realized: the woman in my dream had done the same thing. The same motion, the same movement. Just like Willow.
A sharp intake of breath—that was me. Willow had backed up a half step, her face confused, conflicted, and despite what I’d said before, I reached out and slid my fingers tentatively to touch her face, guiding her chin up so I could look into her eyes.
“Nash…”
 
She made the smallest noise, something that sounded like moan and laugh at the same time. It transformed, deepened to a growl when I kissed her. Yet even as my mouth found hers, as my tongue slid along her lip, begging an invitation, one thought consumed me, something I didn’t believe was left over from my dream. One thought that made me brave, made me hungry: this woman belongs to me.

Moments of Beauty by J.B. Heller Blitz Post


Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Ugly. It the only word to describe my upbringing.
It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.
And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.
Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.
EXCERPT:
ELIZA
It’s him.
Huxley Haynes.
The boy who thinks he’s invisible, but I see him.
I didn’t know anyone else knew about this spot. Well, not exactly, I know I’m not the first person to ever find it, but I’ve never run into anybody else here.
The expression on his face is comical. Something between terrified and busted. I watch him as he watches me, and I wait for him to say something. But he doesn’t. He just stands there gripping a camera in his hands like it’s a life raft.
“I won’t bite.” I say, in an attempt to break the ice.
He frowns for a moment then says, “I know.”
“So why haven’t you said anything?” I ask.
His Adams apple bobs as he swallows, “Ah, I’m not sure what you want me to say?”
I shrug, “I don’t mind. You could say something like, ‘Hi Eliza, nice running into you.’” I do my best to imitate his deeper voice and he cracks a small grin.
“Hi Eliza, nice running into you.”
It sounds so much better when he says it. His voice is deep and husky, it sends a shiver through my body and I grin back. “Hey Hux, what are you doing here? I haven’t seen you here before.”
He scratches his temple before answering me. “You know who I am?” he asks.
“Of course I do. What, have I been living under a rock for the last seventeen years?” I ask incredulous. I’m actually a little offended he doesn’t think I know who he is. We’ve lived in the same town since we were born.
The corner of his lips lift slightly at the sass in my tone. “No, but I’m not exactly your kind of crowd.”
I raise a brow, “Are you trying to offend me?”
He shakes his head, just slightly, “No.”
“So what’s with the line of questions?” I shoot back.
He scratches his temple again, “We don’t, I mean, I’m not,” he sighs and looks at his feet, “I just didn’t think you knew who I was.”
My hands have moved to my hips now, “Why wouldn’t I? We’ve lived in the same town and gone to the same schools since forever.” Then I realise what he means, “Oh, you think I’m one of those conceited bitches who doesn’t acknowledge people I deem as beneath me. How nice of you to judge me when you don’t even know me.”
His head shoots up and there’s panic in his grey eyes, “No, I don’t think that.”
I snort, “Really? Cause that’s the vibe you’re giving off right now.”
He shifts his backpack around and puts his camera inside the open pocket then zips it back up. “This is a really strange conversation,” he supplies.
“You’re the one making it that way. I was being friendly,” I snark at him. And I don’t know why I’m acting like this. I’m not normally so defensive. But his short answers and the fact that he clearly thinks I’m one of those people annoys me. I don’t care if other people think I’m like that, but not him.
Swinging his pack back over his shoulder he chews the corner of his bottom lip for a second and nods, “Yeah okay. Sorry. Guess I’m not a great conversationalist.”
“Do-over?” I suggest, and when he nods I continue, “Hey Hux, fancy seeing you here.”
He hooks his thumbs into the belt loops of his dirt covered jeans, “Hi Eliza, nice running into you.”
I can’t help the smile that takes over my face, “So, what are you doing here? And why are you so dirty?”
Looking down at his jeans he gives me a sheepish grin, “I was de-rocking a garden bed this afternoon, it’s dirty work.”
I snicker because my mind goes to naughty places when he says that. And the twinkle in his eyes says he knows exactly what I’m thinking, so I don’t hold back. “Dirty work for a dirty boy, huh.”
He chuckles, “Something like that.”
Oh my…I’ve never heard him laugh before, it sounds so good. But that’s when I notice a big blackish-blue bruise on his upper arm, “What’s with the bruise? Did the rocks object to being de-rocked?”
He glances at his bicep and grimaces, then clears his throat, “Something like that.”
Right, doesn’t want to talk about the bruise. I change the subject, “Nice spot huh?” I say looking around at the moss covered boulders and the crystal clear water around my ankles.
“Yeah, I take pictures here sometimes.”
And I’m shocked he gave me that much of an answer. But before I have a chance to ask him about it he says he has to go. I can’t deny I’m disappointed, I’ve wanted to talk to him for ages. But he’s not exactly approachable.
“Oh, okay. It was nice to see you Hux.” I say as he begins walking away from me.
He looks back at me over his shoulder, “Yeah, you too.”
Then he disappears into the trees.

SHEIK'S RULE by Ryshia Kennie Book Blast and Giveaway

 
 
 
Sheik’s Rule
by Ryshia Kennie
GENRE: Romantic Suspense
 
 
 
His sister's life is at stake, and despite his wealth and power, Sheik Emir Al-Nassar feels helpless. At least heading his family's security agency provides him with resources to track down her kidnappers. But when the ace profiler he's sent turns out to be K. J.—Kate—Gelinsky, Emir is furious. Finding the kidnappers' desert hideout is dangerous enough without the distraction of a beautiful woman.
 
But K.J. is unlike any woman he's ever known. Her fearlessness and incisive mind inspires Emir's admiration. And her compassion breaches his guarded heart. Still, rescuing his sister is a perilous mission. And allowing desire to cloud his focus could endanger them all.
 
 
 
Just looking at that hand confirmed every doubt he had.  It wasn’t just about customs, she was female and because of that and so many other things, she was the wrong person for the job.
 
“I’ll help you find your sister.  You just need to trust me.”
 
“No!”  The word came out with the pent-up fury that had built since the fateful call from Tara’s kidnappers and now the full impact of it sparked in his eyes as his temple pounded and his fists clenched.
 
“No,” he said with less edge but with no room for negotiation.  He was wasting time, had wasted time, first waiting and now in a senseless airport run.  “I don’t care what you specialized in.  You’re a woman and because of that you’re going home,” he said bluntly.  “I’ve wasted enough time.  I’ll speak to the pilot and we’ll get you out of here.”
 
“You’re not being fair.”
 
“I’m not being fair,” he repeated, emphasizing each word.  If she’d been a man he would have had her by the collar up against the wall, his face in hers.  But she wasn’t and that was the problem.  “You’re useless to me.  I’d have to watch out for both you and me.  That’s a distraction.  Look at you – you couldn’t swing a punch or…”
 
One minute he was seething, glaring at her, and the next he was flat on his back.
 
“You bloody flipped me,” he snarled, leaping to his feet.
 
 
 
 

 
 
The Canadian prairies are my home and while the prairie landscape is blessed with beautiful blue skies, it also has four seasons that come on full throttle – especially winter and because of that I like to travel.  Often on those trips, stories are born. 
 
In 2011 I won my city's writing award, and was the first romance writer to do so since its inception.  In 2013 my romantic suspense was a semi-finalist in the Kindle Book Awards.  Published in historic romance and paranormal romance as well as romantic suspense, in February 2016, my first novel was published by Harlequin Intrigue.
 
There’s no lack of places to set a story as my imagination and the too long prairie winters may find me seeking adventure.  The memories of those worlds both near and far, the words of a stranger, the furtive look one man gives another, often become the catalyst for a suspenseful story with a deadly villain and an intrepid hero and heroine who must battle for their right to love or even their right to live.
 
When not dreaming of other stories, I can be found scouting out a garage sale or two, dusting off my roller blades or just thinking about the next adventure that may be miles away or in my own backyard.

One day you held my hand. One day you loved me.
 
Then you were gone.
 
At sixteen, I lost the only love I’d ever known. Thrown back into the foster system, pregnant and alone, I prayed that you’d come for me and save me from life’s cruelties. Only the next time I saw you, it was too late.
 
Doing what I needed to do to provide for my son, we were finally brought face to face. It should have been the best day of my life, but it was far from it. It was the worst.
 
That day a monster took me and held me captive.
 
I begged for my life. I prayed for my son. I dreamt of you, the memories keeping me alive.
 
You finally came for me. You were my heart. My Salvation.
But sometimes the heart is too damaged, too broken, to be saved.
 
And sometimes monsters have a way of coming back to haunt me.
 

*This is a dark story. It is intended for mature audiences. If you need a trigger warning then this book isn’t for you. I have other books of mine that I’d recommend like Current or Tainted by Crazy, but not this one.


Our Review
Gunner and Charlotte

This is our first time reading this author and I am happy to say that we enjoyed our first read by them.We will be looking forward to reading more in this series for sure.

We love reading about those sexy bad boys and those hot as hell bikers they always take care of that fix for us.We always enjoy finding new authors to help with that addiction of them and we are glad to have come across this author to feed our needs.

Gunner and Charlotte were high school sweethearts.They have developed a deep connection between one another the kind that lasts a lifetime. Unfortunately life gets in the way of their happily after ever.Will these Soul Mates find their way back to one another?

I have to say that I loved the story cover to cover.I will point our that it is not a story for the faint of heart.The story contains rape,torture,human trafficking all done by the worst kind of monster which made it such a heart wrenching read.I have to say that this story touched my emotions on so many levels and at times made me a bit nervous and afraid of what would happen next.I cannot imagine how Charlotte survived the horrific things that were done to her.I takes a very strong person to survive and Charlotte's main focus had always been about getting back to her son.Love is what motivated her to survive and perhaps stay sane and hopefully survive the aftermath of it all.

I admired Charlotte as she was always a survivor even since childhood.I love how she was a strong and loving and giving mother.I loved the bond that she had with her son and that of Gunner.My heart broke for the things that Charlotte endeared her entire life.I loved how she survived to become a survivor and not that of a victim. I love how her heart always belonged to Gunner even though they were apart.I love reading about a couple that their love survives the test of time.

I alway pick a favorite character in a story and mine this time around is going to be Gunner.I picked Gunner because he surprised me most about what he felt ,how he acted,and how he followed through with things.I love how he never gave up his search for Charlotte and how he never stopped loving her.I loved that fact that his heart had always belonged to her whether they were together or apart .All these things surprised me the most because of the way he chose to live his current life. His heart always remained opened and never became hardened or jaded unlike most men who chose that kind of life he led.I loved that about him the most.I loved how furiously he loved Jade and that of his son and the lengths he would go to kept them safe.

Gunner was very intense,dangerous,serious,edgy,handsome,love-able all wrapped up into one bad boy package that us girls can't help but fall for.I loved the chemistry between Charlotte and himself it made for some very hot sexual encounters.

I enjoyed this story and all its character's.I love when you are able to connect with the characters that you read about and I was able to do that.The different personalties of the other MC members added to making story a bit more lighter especially when a plot is riddled with pain and suffering.I was engrossed in the plot and that of its characters from the very first pages.I loved that once I started reading the story I couldn't put it down.I loved how intense the story became with its twists and turns it took and I loved that fact that a couple so in love were able to find each other again and get a chance for their Happily Ever After.The story kept you on edge the entire time with anticipation of what would happen next as the secrets kept coming to life one after another.This was definitely a story that you could not help let it affect your heart strings as it did to mine.I loved this intense love story with all of its twist and turns it made for a very enticing and an engrossing read.

A recommended read to all !

How hot can you handle it?

They are bikers.
They are rough, rugged, and raunchy.

The men of the Deathstalker MC Club are also loyal to the core. They stand by their club without question or fear, and when it comes to their women, there's no holding them back. 
They love fiercely and ferociously.
These men play for keeps, getting what they want when they want it. 

No excuses.
No exceptions.
No turning back.

So hop on and take a ride on the wild side--if you dare.

Corrupted

I have to start off by saying this is a new author for us to read and enjoy.I have to say that I enjoyed the author's story of Jordan and Lucy and their journey to finding love and happiness among the Deathstalkers MC.

I have to say that this story was a heart wrenching  story to read.Lucy is brought up in a religion where a man takes multiple wives as long as childhood brides.Although she enjoy's certain aspects of her religion she know's she must find a way to escape.Lucy's desires in life are much more than being more that one mans wife.

Lucy's life changes monumentally when she decides to escape her future.Lucy's escape leads her to the Deathstalkers MC warehouse.This character does not know how much her life is about to change as her religion goes against everything this MC club stands for.

I always find myself having a favorite character in its story and mine would have to be Jordan.I picked Jordan because you could not help but  fall in love with the protective possessive man.He also had a heart as big as the grand canyon along with patience of a saint.I loved seeing him squirm with all his sexual frustrations in dealing with the lovely Lucy.

Jordan now is a prospect in the MC was assigned as Lucy's protector once coming to the club to look after a frightened and the abused 14 year old girl.It was love at first sight for Jordan he felt and urge to protect and love this beautiful young girl.For Lucy she as well felt the instant connection with Jordan.Jordan foraged and incredible bond with Lucy from the very beginning in meeting one another.As a reader you felt it to.


I have to say that I loved Lucy also.I think out of all the characters we read about we saw the most emotional growth from her.I found as I was reading this story that Lucy was forced to grow up really quickly if she was going to survive in her change of circumstances.Being part of MC life is not for the weak hearted.I also found Lucy to be sweet,innocent,loving and also had a bit of a temper and backbone when warranted.Lucy proved that only the strongest survive that is for sure.She amazed me how strong she was to survive the things that she had overcome past and present.I am not sure I could have done what she did.


I really enjoyed this heart wrenching story of Jordan and Lucy's.This story is not for those faint of heart it deals with all sorts of issues like,rape, abuse,torture and the sexual encounters were super hot.I have to say that the story and the characters engaged my interest from the very first few pages.I found the main characters and those of the MC engaging and gripping to read about.I loved how all these hardened Big Bad A** men all fell for a 14 year old runaway girl treating her like a sister they never had.


I love a story when you are able to connect with the characters from the very beginning which we were able to do.This story was a page turner from beginning to end.I enjoyed being part of Jordan and Lucy's adventure along with all those bumps in their road to get to theirhappily ever after.You will experience so many emotions reading this story .You won't be able not to become emotional yourself and feel just what these characters are feeling.


I loved reading about these Bad A** Biker Bad Boys Shooter,Twisted,Torch ,Jordan who were all taken down by a mere slip of a girl.The ending wowed me as I never saw what happened coming.I look forward to reading more in this series and reading about the others members that were graced to see in this story as well.



Our Review-Heinous
Twisted and Nikki Story

We met Twisted in Corrupted.I have to say that I really liked him then as he seemed to be the softer of the bunch of his bada** biker brothers.Twisted meets Nikki randomly one night for a one night stand that turned out to be so much more...Another great story in the DeathStalkers Mc series.One thing I have learned when reading this series is that you are going to be reading a heart wrenching story.

There are several things that I loved about the story and a few things that annoyed me but, overall all it was a fantastic read.What I disliked is that Nikki did not shared any details of what she was running from.I could have understood if her man was a suit or every day joe but, Twisted was a man who would have understood .I get that everyone is entitled to their secrets but, she had someone in a position to help her or at least advise her how to escape her situation .I also disliked that when she did spill about things that happened to her she didn't tell the whole truth. Knowing, these things will come back and haunt you later on.I just feel she should have had more faith in him.I feel that their entire relationship she never fought for them as a couple.I know that she loved him so , it made it harder for me to understand the decisions she made .I believe she made the wrong choice's she should have put her trust in him.

I always pick a favorite character and mine would have to be Twisted.He is such a great guy he is caring,has a softer side and has a sense of humor around those he cares about.Twisted is also a very protective and possessive of those he cares about.Although we see the softer side of him occasionally but ,don't get me wrong he is deadly.I like that he is the take charge kind of guy that does not crack under pressure. I liked that he never gives up on what he wants.His motto "its worth the wait.''I also loved  how he deals with all the old ladies of the club who he truly cares about and is a charmer to boot.They love him !Twisted has waited a long time to care about someone.With his messed up childhood and trust issues in which he has not dealt with, he figured he was to scarred for someone to love.I feel the loneliness in him.In Nikki though he senses all these same things and he knows she is running from something. Kindred spirits perhaps?I could sense Twisted's frustrations and pain because I believe he would like to have let down his guard for once.I feel that he would really like to give himself to someone and find love and happiness .You sense his longing.

I loved the chemistry between this couple .Their sexual encounters were super hot and playful events.Nikki and Twisted make a great couple but, to her its only temporary.My heart breaks for her as she knows her freedom is coming to an end.Nikki believes that she will never be able to escape her past.You constantly catch glimpses of her sadness it breaks your heart to see her hurting so much.I loved how she taunts and teases Twisted all the time ,it was funny to see.At these instants you could not help but laugh.I felt  Nikki's pain as she falls in love with Twisted knowing she will never be able to tell him how she feels.Nikki's aura is filled with sadness,loneliness and fear.Nikki would be the perfect fit for Twisted as she has a temper , is feisty, has a sense of humor and is familiar with the MC Life.She also is not naive to hardships of what life deals you ,she has lived them.

The story had everything you could ask for.The story has a mystery to solve,love,laughter,drama,danger,hot sex,bad boys,sexy hot men and friends and family.All of those other characters and their old ladies in the story with their ups and downs helped make it a great read.I just love reading books in series where the character's grace the pages from book to book.I just love that.This story was definitely an emotional roller coaster.The emotional pain was gripping at times and your heart broke for each and everyone of these characters.

This story is not for those who are light hearted.This story deals with rape both adult and childhood ,torture,graphic sex and foul mouth men.All these things through made a compelling fast pace heart wrenching read.Your emotions making you happy, sad,terrified,scared and pissed off all at the same time.

Another great installment in the DeathStalkers MC Trilogy. (This was book Two) A 5 star read from us here a Angels.I highly recommend this book if your a big fan of MC romance and Bad Boys.

Our Review-Chaos
Tracie and Torch's Story
 
This is a new author we discovered recently and we are really enjoying her DeathStalkers MC series.We are on book three and loving them all.You could say were hooked !This was another gripping story in the DeathStalkers series that turned out to be yet another compelling read.

This story unlike the other in its series this couple Tracie and Torch have known each other for many years both being part of the DeathStalkers MC club.Torch is a bada**brother of the MC and Tracie is the all around go to girl that gets everything done. With this being the case Tracie is considered club property and is under their protection.Tracie is the glue the holds them altogether she see's to their needs and the welfare of men.I noticed that she did all of this without getting overly attached to anyone.

My favorite character that I am picking is going to be Tracie.I loved her personality.She was strong,feisty and had an amazing sense of humor.I loved how protective she was of those she chose to care about and take under her wing.I loved the amazing friendship she had with Lucy that was filled with love and laughter.These two characters were total opposites making their friendship even more remarkable.Tracie is a women who has had a hard life that keeps on kicking yet seems to find some happiness were she can.I loved how she fought her attraction so long when It came to Torch.I understood her reasons and fears why she didn't want to get involved with him. He has all the personality traits that makes her shake in fear.That all may be the case but she is fiercely attracted to the bada** biker. You had to laugh out loud at the thoughts that she was having when talking to herself when thinking out loud about Torch and herself in a sexual encounter .Reprimanding herself is more like it.To funny!I loved how she spoke out against a brother about several injustices that were going on at the club.This took major guts to do something like this ,never knowing what the backlash would be to herself and safety.Tracie is not a girl to cross just ask the ex boyfriend as she dealt with him Tracie style.(I laughed out loud at the breakup in question) Gr inns...

Torch has a nickname for Tracie he is always calling her princess and never by her name which just pisses her off.I love the camaraderie that she had with the ladies of the club they definitely had some fun times.I reallysympathized with Tracie about her decisions  she will have to make about Torch becoming part of her life.Torch could either make her the happiest girl alive or be the one to utterly destroy her.I understand and grieve for her as she know's all to well what a man with Torch's capabilities and dominate personality could crush her mental stability in a heart beat.

Torch has a softer side to him that he does not let many people see.Just making him more endearing.He can be patient and kind and has a bit of humor but, when angered he is a frightening dangerous killer.I love how Torch was patient and kind and gave Tracie the space she needed to decide if he would be worth the risk.Torch understands her fears and hang ups as he knows part of her story yet not all of it.That's why I just love him he doesn't push and yet he has this dominate personality that just wants to do the opposite.One of my favorite parts of the story was when the men are sitting around chatting like girlfriends spilling their wives secrets.Listening to that conversations had you laughing out loud so hard.Can you just picture this? 

This story had so much going on in it making it a fast paced read that tugged at all your emotions in a big way.One minute you were laughing out loud the next crying at the heartbreak these members were experiencing.

One thing that I love about this authors stories she makes you fall in love with their characters.This story had all the elements I love family unity, mystery suspense,humor, drama,heartbreak and major secrets coming to life with the OMG factor.
(I never saw that coming thing)
All the characters play a part in this story lending their quirks to making it a page turner for me.Its important to me as a reader to connect with the characters I am reading about and this author did that for me from the very first pages.
OMG the ending just left you wanting more.Looking forward to reading Broken which is next up in this series.


Another 5 star read from us here at Angels.I recommended to all the MC Romance fans.Just be aware that these books contain a lot of violence and are graphic, emotional and men and women with healthy sexual appetites and their encounters Super Hot!I love reading about those Big Bada** bikers with their possessive and dominate natures making them totally Hot! 
( fanning myself and grinning)

Be sure to check the other books in this series as well and if you do I recommend reading them in the order they came out.

New York Times bestselling author Jay Crownover brings heat and heart to Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie family with AVENGED…

Girl meets boy…

On the worst night of her life when she’s decided to take a drastic step that there is no going back from.

Girl is used to sitting by, letting fate deal cruel hand after cruel hand to good people with soft hearts and she’s had enough.

Girl thinks it’s time to fight back against fate and against men who aren’t careful with all the precious things a woman in love has to give him.

Fate shows girl who’s boss and turns her world and plans upside down without breaking a sweat.

Boy meets girl…

On the best night of his life when he’s decided that he’s going to make moves to be the man he was always meant to be instead of the man he was trained and conditioned to be.

Boy is used to a solitary life, quiet in the woods and knowing the only thing that might be looking for him is trouble and trouble is no longer his stock in trade.

Boy thinks it’s time to show trouble who’s boss, even if this trouble has big blue eyes and a body made to make men stupid. Trouble only gets the upper hand if the boy falls prey to its temptation.

Trouble turns the boy’s quiet, serene life sideways without any effort.

Trouble is fun and fate has a wicked sense of humor when it comes to this boy meeting this girl.

 
Lets start of by saying this is a new author for us a we throughly enjoyed our first read by them.We enjoyed it so much that after finishing this story and that of Never Surrender we purchased two more books in the MacKenzie series.We are looking forward to reading more about those MacKenzie men.
 
I love this stories plot and it character's .I found them to be engaging, funny, playful,serious,heat-broken,dangerous,regretful,lost,protective,love able,sexy,sweet,caring making them  so intriguing to read about.
 
I love when two lost soul's find each other and share a connection with one another and have amazing chemistry together.A chance meeting where a couple happens to come into each other life when I just so happens when both are at their lowest points.I love when people who have made bad choices in life are able to find someone they can relate to making it possible where they can finally bare their souls to one another and who would  be able to understand  what they are going through. To sympathize with their past life choices..What I loved about both Echo and Ben is that they owned up to their past's without making excuses and just moved forward to try and make themselves better for themselves and others around them.When shredding their secrets there was no judgement  just sympathy and understanding.Each of them just owned who they were and I really liked that about them.
 
I always have a favorite character in a story that I pick and mine is going to be Ben.Echo was a favorite to but Ben tipped the scales for me because I loved how he found himself doing things so out of character for him.I saw the most change in his character then any other.Ben could be grumpy,serious,dangerous,deadly,selfish self absorbed and had a huge ego but we saw a totally different side to him when it came to his interactions with Echo.He just amazed me and  had me smiling at every turn.How could this deadly predator treat a women with affection , be gentle and kind and handle her with care and be possessive of someone he just met  and yet be a stone cold killer on the other hand.Ben was instantly attracted to Echo and fought it at every turn knowing he was no good for her knowing that there was not going to be any kind of future for them.What I did love is that he regretted his past for once in his life just wishing he had been a better man and worthy of Echo.I really liked how he teased Echo and called her pet names especially when he gave her the name pop tart.Why that name ? Because he love them. Sigh..I was totally drawn to him with his dangerous aura that sexy grin and that sweet protective side of him making him irresistible .I guess you can say that I fell for him just like Echo did.We always love that certain sweet  knowing it's bad for us yet loving it anyways.We just can't help ourselves its just our one and only sinful indulgence! (laughing out loud)
 
I have to say that I loved everything about Echo as well.I found her to be sweet ,kind ,love able,sexy,lonely.I felt Echo's pain and suffering at the loss her sister and her guilt at not being able to save her.She took her sisters death to heart and should not have.That guilt only made her resentful , angry and wanting nothing more than to seek revenge for the person she felt  contributed to her sisters death.I loved how Ben helped Echo deal with all of that and put things in perspective so she would be able to heal.I love the chemistry this couple had along with their amazing hot and sexy interludes.One of the things that surprised me the most about Echo is that she never felt afraid of Ben even when she was in no condition to defend herself.They simple bonded and a trust had be formed right from the onset.
 
I believe that fate put this couple in each other path.The funny thing about fate is that it is not always kind.Even though there may not be a happy after for this couple their being together brought healing to those two lost lonely souls and put them on the a path to find the happiness they were both seeking out of life.I loved this story from beginning to end with all its twist and turns ,it's up and downs ,it's amazing character's that were interesting and you were able to relate to. I was drawn to them from the very first pages.I found myself smiling more than once and chuckling every now and then making it just another fun and fantastic read for us.
 
I will be looking forward to this author's other works as well. A recommend read to all !

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR KAYLEA CROSS DIVES INTO LILIANA HART’S MACKENZIE FAMILY WITH NEVER SURRENDER…

AS THE BAGRAM CREW ASSEMBLES AT A GUEST RANCH IN MONTANA TO CELEBRATE THE WEDDING OF TWO OF ITS OWN, EVERYONE EXPECTS A FUN WEEK-LONG VACATION ENJOYING SOME MUCH-NEEDED DOWNTIME TOGETHER. BUT IN THE PICTURESQUE FOOTHILLS BORDERING THE RANCH, A HIDDEN DANGER LURKS. 

WHEN THE GUYS STUMBLE UPON EVIDENCE OF A DOMESTIC TERRORIST CELL DURING THE BACHELOR PARTY, IT PUTS EVERYONE DIRECTLY IN THE CROSSHAIRS OF A LETHAL ENEMY DETERMINED TO REMAIN UNSEEN, UNLEASHING A WAVE OF DANGER EVERY BIT AS DEADLY AS WHAT THEY FACED BACK OVERSEAS. THEN A SHOCKING REVELATION FROM THE PAST COMES TO LIGHT, AND IT MAY BE THE KEY TO WINNING THE FIGHT. NOW THEY MUST COME TOGETHER AS A TEAM TO ELIMINATE THE THREAT, BEFORE THEY WIND UP GATHERED FOR A FUNERAL INSTEAD OF A WEDDING.

Lets start of by saying this is a new author for us a we throughly enjoyed our first read by them.We enjoyed it so much that after finishing this story and that of Avenged we purchased two more books in the MacKenzie series.We are looking forward to reading more about those MacKenzie men.

I love it when a story starts off with hooking you from the very first pages.I think what did it was that those characters that did it.I loved them all especially the girls with their sense of humor and especially Candace's grand-mother she was just a hoot.

This novella had tons of drama going on from the very beginning.If it was not personal drama,wedding drama,grand-mother drama it was something else.I loved getting caught up in it all.It's been awhile since I read a romantic suspense book and this was the perfect read to ease me back into them.Candace and Ryan were easy to relate to.You were able to feel the emotions of this couple and you could sympathize with them and the troubles they were experiencing.You could see that this couple (Ryan and Candace)really loved one another so your heart broke for the turmoil and unhappiness that was causing the gap in their marriage.They were such a sweet couple.I can only imagine what its like being married to a military man constantly worrying if their safe or not and not to mention the loneliness for the both of them they must be experiencing.

The story was surrounded around a couple of friends getting married Erin and Wade in attendance of all their mutual friends but then the story took on a new life of its own with its other character's taking the focus off them.I have never read a story like that before it was quite different and I liked it.But, when all the men decide to hunt and camp for an evening things took a major twist when the men stumble upon something not right putting them all on high alert.

I am not sure what it was or how it happened but I was drawn to Candace's and Ryan's more than any other character's.It was just something about this couple  perhaps their chemistry or connection to one another maybe their love story of falling in love in a war zone.I just love it when a couple find love in the worst possible times it just makes their story more endearing.I was really attracted to Ryan their was something that drew me to him instantly perhaps it was his sweetness, alluring voice or those bedroom eyes but , that man got me all hot and bothered.
(laughing out loud)

I always pick a favorite character in a story even though Candace and Ryan were my favorite couple Ruby caught my eye as well.Ruby Candace's grand-mother turned out to be a character that made me laugh with all her antic's and smart mouth and witty personality. She was a hoot to read about.I loved that she didn't give a crap what others thought of her.I loved how she new how to have fun.I also loved that their was more to Ruby then anyone ever new.That was really a nice surprise when her secrets start coming to life and giving us one of those OMG moments where your mouth is hanging open.Your saying out loud really Ruby ? and than laughing..I loved that moment.Way to go Ruby !

This was an intriguing story that had its ups its downs.I loved that all the character's had so much in common  being military and government men and women with amazing personalities.I also enjoyed the other men and wives who added humor and loved their camaraderie with one another.This just added to the story that gave us more than a few chuckles .This just made the story me enjoyable for me.The plot and the character's drew me right in from the very beginning making it a page turner for me that I read cover to cover in one sitting.I love when your are able to connect with the character's that you read about and as you can see I was able to do just that. This makes for more of a interesting read when you love the character's your reading about.An amazing plot with character's that were love- able funny,smart,protective and possessive and down wright intriguing.My kind of read...

I love a story when the author has done and amazing job that has you thinking about the character's even after the story had been done and over. Though out  the day more than once something came to mind of what I had read and had me smiling..

Book Blitz and Giveaway for Echo by Nana Malone (The Player #3)


Echo
Nana Malone
(The Player #3)
Publication date: March 21st 2017
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Sports

Money, power, prestige…freedom. Echo Coulter is—The Player.
You are a Coulter. You will be perfect. That’s what Echo has been told every day of her life. As the only girl in the Coulter clan, she knows it’s her job to be the glue of the family. But with the Olympics looming, the last thing she wants is to follow the rules. She wants to break free, and she knows just the guy to help her.
Cole Atkins has no interest in spoiled little rich girls. Besides, he’s got the job of a lifetime and just met the girl of his dreams…That is, until she ditches him under the cover of darkness. He can put her out of his head and deal with a spoiled princess for a couple of months right?
EXCERPT:
He knew where his mind should be. But that didn’t matter because right now it was filled with her, and how the scent of her clung to his skin. Someone that was supposed to be a one-night stand had somehow burrowed her way into his mind. Fine, whatever. He’d figure it out. He could find her again. How hard could it be?
Pulling on a pair of boxers, he looked around his apartment for any trace of her, but found nothing. No excuse to look her up to return something she forgot. If he wanted to see her again, he’d have to find her. And he was surprised by how strong that impulse was.
He’d hooked up a lot, but he’d never had a one-night stand that had gone quite like that. But then, he rarely woke during the night, and so he’d never taken the time to talk, like he had with Cece. Or maybe they’d overshared. He wondered if that was what had run her off so easily. He shook his head to force the thought aside. Not with what had happened between them after their little talk. He wouldn’t believe that they’d been able to connect so strongly physically, if the personal things they shared were what had made her run.
He’d never felt a connection like that before. Maybe her friend had dropped digits. If he couldn’t find her, that was it, he’d let it go. But he at least had to try.


Author Bio:

A HUMAN ELEMENT by Donna Galanti Book Blast & Giveaway

 
 
A Human Element
by Donna Galanti
GENRE: Paranormal Suspense
 
 
Evil comes in many forms…
 
One by one, Laura Armstrong’s friends and adoptive family members are being murdered, and despite her unique healing powers, she can do nothing to stop it. The savage killer haunts her dreams, tormenting her with the promise that she is next. Determined to find the killer, she follows her visions to the site of a crashed meteorite in her hometown. There, she meets Ben Fieldstone, who seeks answers about his parents’ death the night the meteorite struck. In a race to stop a madman, they unravel a frightening secret that binds them together. But the killer’s desire to destroy Laura face-to-face leads to a showdown that puts Laura and Ben’s emotional relationship and Laura’s pure spirit to the test. With the killer closing in, Laura discovers her destiny is linked to his, and she has two choices—redeem him or kill him.
 

 
Felix ran from the cabin toward the trail down. "Come on!"   
 
Ben followed close behind, panic hitting him. Why did Laura leave? They were here to help defend her. Damn her! He never should have left her alone.
 
"Felix, why didn't you see this happening?"
 
"I did."
 
Ben grabbed the back of Felix's coat and lunged at him. Felix turned on one heel and swung his arm out, holding Ben off like a child.
 
Ben struggled to break free. "What the hell is wrong with you? Why didn't you stop her? She's gonna die. I need to protect her."
 
"This is the only way, Ben. Trust me."
 
"She's the one person I've cared about in a long, long time. Please, don't let her die."
 
Felix released him. "I don't intend to. Now come on."
 
Felix turned away and ran fast down the trail. His massive body moved nimble over the rugged ground. He looked like a giant, dark beast lunging toward its prey. Ben could only run after him. There was nothing else he could do.
 
They hadn't run far when a deafening blast pushed them to the ground. The cabin exploded behind them in flames. Fire devoured old wood and metal, dancing upward toward the sky. The heat grabbed at them with fiery intensity. Ben could feel it burning his face and hands.
 
"Laura," he whispered, stunned by the violence aimed at them. Their enemy was real. And he was here. Felix and Ben turned and both ran faster down the mountain, lunging down the trail, grabbing branches to push themselves along.
 
Felix had to be right. Please, let Felix be right.

I'm supposed to take her life. I'm going to take her body instead.
 
They call me a Saint, but I’m a f*cking sinner.
 
Ruthless. Coldhearted. Killer. I was young when my parents took off and left me alone to fend for my two younger brothers. I learned to survive. I learned to fix problems, by any means necessary.
 
Which is exactly what I do for the Dark Saints - the Irish crime family that raised me as their own. I make the secrets stay in the shadows. I make the bodies disappear. I make the problems go away. I owe them that much.  
 
That is, until she walks in and sees me with a smoking gun in my fist and blood on my hands.
 
Sierra Hammond - the kind of good girl who wants to pretend she’s bad by hanging out in the rough parts of town. But this time, she stepped into the wrong bar and ran into the wrong man.
 
I know the rules, and I know letting her walk out of there alive breaks every single one of them. But one look into those big brown eyes, and one touch of those sweet curves writhing and fighting against me, and I know I’m done.
 
I’ll start a war.
 
I’ll break every vow.
 
I’ll move heaven and hell to make her mine.
 
F*ck the rules, I’m taking her instead.
**Saint is a standalone novel with a HEA and NO CLIFFHANGER!**

Beckett Montgomery is a well-known detective in the New York area. He takes his job seriously and has little time for anything else.
 
During an investigation in to a series of break-ins of an apartment building on 32nd St., he finds himself getting a little too involved. What had always in the past been his job, now felt as if it was so much more.
 
He can’t seem to let go of the image of the beautiful, scared blonder face. He found that protecting her became all he could think of. Whatever it took, not matter the cost, he would provide her the security she needed. 
 
He assured himself he would remain professional, he would dedicate himself fully to the task at hand and never would he mix business with pleasure.
 
Yet with each passing second Beckett spent in the presence of Shanelle Kramer, he found that the need for her only grew. Her beauty alone made him weak in the knees and that was only the beginning.
 
He had never desired a woman more.
 
Never felt the need to conquer, or claim, but she was different.
 
Maybe just one taste would end his addiction for Shanelle?
 
But one taste was just a tease….
And he needed more, so much more.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A little about me. Let’s see where to start.
I love HEA stories, as long as they come packing a little heat. I need some excitement, some angst, and moments that make me fan my face are always good too. I am an Illinois girl, born and raised. Simple and true, it honestly doesn’t take much to make me happy. I love the little things; they truly mean the most. I may have a slight addiction to my new Keurig—oh my, that thing is a godsend. And so fast too. I have two children who truly are my very best friends, and their faces never fail to put a smile on my face. I have been married to my husband for sixteen years, and even though at times I want to beat him with a stick, I would never change the years we have had. We have learned and fallen, only to pick each other up, dust off the ache, and help each other make it right.
I am one of those authors that adore my fans. I love to hear from you. After all, it is because of each one of you that I continue to write. I look forward to your feedback.

Publication date: March 21st 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Having it all is a fantasy, right?
Carrie Shelton thought her boyfriend was too good to be true. Her best friend’s brother? A guy who loved antiquing? Who cuddled on the couch while watching foodie YouTube clips and talking about artisanal spices? Who helped her accessorize her outfits?
Right.
Fantasy.
So when he ran off with Kevin, the owner of an antique shop, right before his sister’s wedding, Carrie’s life went from fantasy to nightmare.
As maid of honor, she can’t back out of the wedding. And her ex is the best man – but now he has his own best man.
She needs a date. Stat.
Enter Ryan. Sure, he’s a hot male stripper at the O Spa where she works as junior designer, but he’s a few years younger and just, you know — a friend.
Perfect. She needs a friend more than she needs a boyfriend.
A weekend of playing her boyfriend so she can save face is a lot to ask, but for some reason Carrie doesn’t understand, Ryan’s all in. Enthusiastic, even.
Especially when it comes to physical displays of affection.
Public kisses turn to private confessions, and pretty soon, Carrie can’t tell the difference between fantasy and reality.
Because if Ryan’s just pretending he’s in love with her, then why does the chemistry between them — and between the sheets — feel so real?
Carrie can’t settle for almost, though. She’s already done that. She’s not putting her life on hold anymore.
Turns out Ryan won’t, either.
He’s holding out for more.
Thank You For Holding is a STANDALONE in the On Hold series. You do not need to have read book 1 in the series, but after reading about Carrie and Ryan’s friends-to-lovers adventure, you’ll want to.
