Release Blitz; Murder

Title: Murder
Series: Sinful Secrets #2
Author: Ella James
Genre: Romantic Suspense
 Release Date: May 31, 2016


Let me tell you now: I kill her.

I love Gwenna White more than my life. And still – I'm her demise.

It should have been simple. Easy come, easy go, and in between: atonement.
She was not who I'd have chosen.
Gwen was delicate and lovely: a former model with a ruined life, living loudly in the quiet of the Smoky Mountains, healing injured bears.
When she laid her hands on me, she healed me, too.
That's how it began. That's where it went wrong.

I knew she could never be mine. But I sinned.

I sinned.

Book Blitz; Sweet Jayne


Sweet Jayne by K. Webster

Publication Date: May 31, 2016

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark, Romance, Standalone

Front Only


Nadia Jayne’s world is full of villains.
Kasper thinks he hates her.
Donovan thinks he loves her.
Logan thinks he owns her.

Sweet Jayne is a complicated girl… She needs Kasper. She hides from Donovan. She has a plan for Logan. But maybe complicated Jayne isn’t so sweet after all… In fact, she might just be the biggest villain of them all.

WARNING: Story contains dark taboo themes and violence both sexual and physical which could trigger emotional distress in reader.


What can I say that I haven't already said about K Webster. She is truly one sick, crazy person. But I love everything she comes up with. Once I started reading Sweet Jayne, I couldn't put it down. Something about all of her books has this effect on me.

This story is one crazy ride. I found myself asking myself "WTF" every other chapter. Don't take the warning as a joke. This story really has some strong points, but K's mind takes you to where you never even thought of going. The best part is she opens you but always closes you. 

This story is very suspenseful, full of mystery mixed with romance. In this story there are three key members involved. Each one brings something interesting and when you finally think you have one figured out, BAM! You get thrown in the opposite direction. 

Throughout my read I had my own perspective of each character, but after I learned more about them, I couldn't help but feel a certain way for them. 

I really enjoyed this story. I'm more convinced my mind is more corrupted because of K Webster.

Review Tour; Reawakened Secrets

Title: Reawakened Secrets

Series: Reawakened #1

Author: Mari Denae


Published: October 26, 2015
Some secrets should never be kept...

 Growing up in the servant’s quarters at Haven Hill, Claire Brown was a poor outcast living in a world of money and privilege.
 Her only solace was best friend, Alice Sinclair and secret desire, Jackson Montgomery. 
 Rich and connected, they were perfect in every way and perfect for each other. 

Still, Claire was foolish enough to fall in love with Jackson, and desperate enough to hide it.
 When Alice found out, there was a terrible accident that left her in a coma. 

Jackson disappeared, leaving New Haven without even saying good­bye.
 Ten years later, Claire has managed to build a life without them.

 So when Jackson calls out of nowhere to say Alice is awake, Claire’s first thought is Thank God.

 Her second? I’m screwed.

 Lusting after Jackson destroyed her. 
It’s nothing compared to what she’s hiding now. 

But nothing stays hidden forever.

Finally, I arrived at the hospital and made my way to the elevator. I tried to concentrate only on Alice ­ impossible. I struggled against the tears that welled in my eyes and wondered who was this pathetic person I’d become in less than thirty minutes? I’m a surgeon, for crying out loud... well, almost. I dealt with life­and- death situations all the time. Nevertheless, my heart continued to pound at the thought of seeing him again.
Now was not the time to lose my shit. The naïve, infatuated kid I used to be stopped existing a long time ago, thanks in no small part to Jackson Montgomery and my own recklessness. The elevator came to a smooth stop, and I stared at the number illuminated over the doors as they slid open. I took a long, deep breath and stepped out into the hallway.
My heart slowed to a steady beat when I realized she was alone. Disappointment, not the expected relief, flowed through me. My eyes filled again, and shame rooted me in place, much too far away from the person I had rushed to see. Alice’s fragile frame lay unnaturally still in the oversized hospital bed. It was really her. I soaked in the beauty of her face. Waves of silvery blonde hair fanned her pillow. Her delicate cheekbones were more prominent in the sunken cheeks. The slight bow of her lips curved into a smile while she slept. Thick brown lashes framed her eyelids in stark contrast to her pale, translucent skin. She looked very much the same, just a frailer version of the girl I used to know.
Alice, my savior, my lifeline, was finally home. I couldn’t remember a time before she had been a part of my life. Her mother had died just before her second birthday, so my mom became more or less a surrogate to her as the nanny. We lived on her family’s estate grounds in the staff quarters of Haven Hill. Alice and I had spent most of our time together.
Unable to think of one without the other, my mind drifted to Jackson. I must have been four years old the first time he came to visit Alice. We were playing hide­and­seek in the Haven Hill rose garden. I couldn’t take my eyes off him. I had never seen anyone so beautiful. Well, maybe except for Alice.
“Who’s that?” I had whispered to Alice as my mother led him to us. I was afraid to voice my curiosity too loudly.
“Oh, that’s just Jackson,” she replied. “I’m gonna marry him one day.” She smiled.
Me too, I thought to myself, looking guiltily toward my best friend. Even then, I had known this was a thought I should not share with Alice. No matter how good a friend she was, and despite the fact that we told each other everything, something about how Jackson Montgomery made me feel was private. Without warning, Alice’s eyes fluttered open. My stomach lurched viciously, but I was frozen in place.


While I'm not usually a big fan of serials, this trilogy makes me think differently. 
I don't know if I'm all on board with the serial thing, I love books that are long. Very long. But I can see the appeal, especially for a book like this one. 

There is so much mystery. The way the characters try to focus on both the past and the present. You can feel the turmoil that Claire feels. She wants to move on and have her best friends back, but she knows the secrets she's hiding can destroy everything. 

Though she's not the only one keeping secrets. 

Both past and present come together in this book and it's the intrigue, the mystery, that keeps you wanting more. 

For the beginning of a serial, this is a really strong start. It keeps the reader invested, even though they seem to get more questions than answers they learn enough to make them want to keep reading. The characters are written well enough that you feel them at times. 

It will be interesting to see how the characters develop with everything they had to go through and everything they will go through in the future. 

About The Author

I am a married mother of three and publishing my first novel is a dream come true. As the nerd that went to bed with a flashlight to read the books I swiped from my mom’s room, I have always been an avid book lover. My favorites are hot, alpha male heroes (think Kristen Ashley), suspenseful, romantic thrillers (think Sandra Brown) and poignant, sweet love stories (think Abbi Glines or Colleen Hoover). My plan was always to be a writer of some sort, but somehow real life responsibilities got in the way. Now, I am an accountant with a night time writing obsession.

One Saturday afternoon, I took my girls to see the latest teenage movie. Four days later, I had read all four Twilight books. I was inspired by the innocent romance and 'Edward Cullen' (don't judge). Once I found my way to Fifty Shades of Grey, I was a complete goner. All my spare time was spent reading, writing or blogging. After version one million, five hundred and fifty five of my series Reawakened, I'm finally ready to share it and hope that someone enjoys reading the story as much as I have enjoyed writing it. This one's for my mother. I hope she's looking down proud because I finally finished what I started.

Book Blitz; Grin and Beard It


Grin and Beard It

by Penny Reid Winston Brothers #2
Publication Date: May 31, 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romantic Comedy



Sienna Diaz is everyone’s favorite “fat” funny lady. The movie studio executives can’t explain it, but her films are out-grossing all the fit and trim headliners and Hollywood’s most beautiful elite. The simple truth is, everyone loves plus-sized Sienna.
But she has a problem, she can’t read maps and her sense of direction is almost as bad as her comedic timing is stellar. Therefore, when Sienna’s latest starring role takes her to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park she finds herself continually lost while trying to navigate the backroads of Green Valley, Tennessee. Much to her consternation, Sienna’s most frequent savior is a ridiculously handsome, charming, and cheeky Park Ranger by the name of Jethro Winston. Sienna is accustomed to high levels of 
man-handsome, so it’s not Jethro’s chiseled features or his perfect physique that make Sienna stutter. It’s his southern charm. And gentlemanly manners. And habit of looking at her too long and too often. Sienna has successfully navigated the labyrinth of Hollywood heartthrobs. But can she traverse the tenuous trails of Tennessee without losing her head?
Or worse, her heart?
