Betsy – 

Amongst the Wildflowers is the third book in the Fleurs d’Amour series. While it is the series it is a completely stand-alone book. This installment follows the reintroduction of estranged best friend Ethan Miller into Layla Jenson’s life. The love that these two characters share started as a childhood infatuation to a teenage crush to adult love. Their chemistry is amazing, but it’s all the other moments that tug at your heartstrings.

An engaging story with believable characters, steamy love scenes and all the feel, Amongst the Wildflowers, is a must read!

 

GOOSE (Devil’s Disciples MC Book 4) by Scott Hildreth

 

Blurb – 

ALLY – He looked like he needed a “pick me up”, so I gave him one. In passing, I shoved my panties into the pocket of his leather jacket. It wasn’t typical behavior for me, but he wasn’t a typical biker.

It didn’t matter. I’d never see him again.

When he appeared at my favorite diner a few days later, my jaw hit the floor.

My panties weren’t far behind.

When I found out he was a thief, I grinned at the common bond we shared.

Then, I took his wallet.

I planned to steal his heart next.

First, I’d have to tell him the truth.

The entire truth.

GOOSE – Finding my pantyless Cinderella wasn’t going to be an easy task. I told myself if—and when—I did find her, I’d make her mine for one glorious night.

I quickly learned one night would never be enough.

I knew relationships weren’t for outlaw bikers. Relationships required honesty.

Being honest about club business was contradictory to the MC’s rules.

The only way around it was if she became a member of the MC.

We needed a member, no doubt. Not a smart-mouthed chick with a bold attitude, though. Unless she was a died-in-the-wool thief and a getaway car driver…

Still in Shock

After the last book in this series I couldn’t wait to see where this author was going to go and trust me when I say he didn’t disappoint.  Just when I think that one book can’t be outdone I’m proven once again to be wrong.

Goose has been torn upside down from losing one of his closest friends and he has struggled the most I believe with this.  When he sees Ally the first time there is attraction there that catches him off guard especially with what he finds she left him.  However, once he meets her he realizes that she is definitely unlike anyone he has ever met.

Ally is one of the strongest women I’ve see written in awhile.  She is who she is no apologies and she is smart and talented beyond belief.  She has this honestly about her that Goose is intrigued by however his biggest thing is TRUST.  That’s his hardest thing to do and he struggles with this throughout.

Anyone who has read this series will definitely want to read this and anyone who likes a strong female will enjoy this.  

 

The FedSex Man by Scott Hildreth

 

Blurb –

Having the perfect package delivered can be a life changer.

JO – Tyson Neese had secrets. Secrets that forced him to distance himself from anyone who offered him love. Bouncing from woman to woman, he feared not what a relationship provided, but what he may lose if he gave himself to another.

He delivered packages for FedEx, wearing his lack of trust like a shield of protective armor.

I was enthralled by him. Anyone would have been.

He was a walking orgasm, and an intriguing one at that.

His real beauty, however, was imbedded much deeper than what could be seen on the surface.

A socially awkward nerd of a book store owner who spent all her idle time secretly reading steamy romance novels, I was the least threatening woman he’d encountered in years.

He must have sensed it, because on the night we met he set his armor aside.

Open-mouthed, and completely out of my comfort zone, I wondered…

Could I live with what lie beneath?

TYSON – Jo Watson was the notch on my sexual bedpost I’d been waiting for, and nothing more.

One night with her was all I wanted. Hit it and quit it was my motto.

When she agreed to go on a date, she didn’t tell me everything. I wish she would have. Had I known of her assets in advance, I wouldn’t have gone.

Not knowing, however, started a sequence of events that changed my life – and hers – forever.

Laugh out loud and tug at your heart

Jo owns a bookstore and Tyson is her local fedex delivery guy. Jenny and Shawn are each of their best friends that definitely deliver great humor and actually great advice through this book.  At times though maybe too much advice.

Jo doesn’t have a lot of experience with men and Tyson has no experience with women outside the bedroom.  So this book is laugh out loud funny as these 30 somethings stumble through the dating life when neither of them know much about it.  However, the story that is told between the pages tugs at your heart strings. I laughed, I cried, and I learned things throughout this book.

This author has a way with all his books of throwing in lessons about life that you wish you knew a long time ago.  So kick back, grab a drink, your Kleenex, and get ready for a wonderful book that’ll put a smile on your face.

 

Lace and Paint (True Colors Book 1) by Ally Sky

 

 

Blurb – 

Some scars last forever…
All Talia Bloom wanted was to escape to London for a fresh start; a chance to slip away into a big city. A chance to live and breathe. 
Moving in with her brother and using his basement as her studio, she finds a way to manage the urges and whims of her never-too-controlled bipolar disorder. She has it all worked out: stick to her routine and everything will be okay.

Ben Storm is not part of that plan. Delicious, secretive, and a sure recipe for addiction, he’s a challenge to her carefully balanced lifestyle and the one thing that could bring it down.
As she slips into an uncontrollable obsessive need for Ben, she risks losing everything. Because when her demons take control, nothing can stand in their way and they have the power to destroy it all.

LACE & PAINT is a story of a fragile soul fighting for her life, her love and her self-worth, and is the first installment it the explosive True Colors series.

Fairies and Demons

What a beautiful and sad story.  Talia is bipolar and has an eating disorder.  She needs to live her life in a specific way to keep herself on track.  When she loves it’s with an all-consuming passion and the more she’s told no the more her demons hear yes.

Talia is definitely one of those people that is so talented but can’t see it because she’s so worried about what others may or may not see.  The only place she feels free to speak is behind a screen hiding from everyone.

When her world crashes around her.  I think for the first time she honestly sees the damage that she’s done to more than just herself.  Will she be able to fix anything?

I recommend this book to anyone who likes a story to sink their teeth in.  You will definitely be yelling at your kindle before the read is over. It isn’t all hearts and flowers but lets face it unless you live in a bubble it’s called life.  This is more like a slow dance with the devil himself and how Talia figures out how to do battle with him.

 

The Preacher’s Wife by K. Michaels

 

Blurb – 

When a devoted wife to a man of God wakes up naked in another man’s bed, what is she to do? A proper lady would leave immediately. Then again, a proper lady never would have found herself in this predicament.

The other man didn’t care what she wanted. He had had fantasies of Jessica for some time. Finally able to live them out, he made sure to record footage of her drunken indiscretion and use it against her. He refused to be a one night stand.

With no other option, Jessica gave in to her blackmailer. She would do whatever it took to keep her husband in the dark, even the unspeakable. But as her arousal warred with her guilt, she would find that the most shameful sins we’re the ones that brought the most pleasure.

Misti –

Jessica is a preacher’s wife and she has gone to a bar for a drink so she won’t be judged. When she awakes the next day she is shocked and surprised by what she finds her husband’s BFF.

 

While she’s having issues with this she sees that her only way out is to be play by Jason’s rules for now.   This is meant to be and is a short erotic book and leaves you wanting more.

 

Dank by Emery LeeAnn

 

Blurb – 

**A short horror story**
Dank has only known pain and darkness his whole life. When one strong dose of radiation awakens his inner clown, the onslaught is chaos.
Get ready for this new brand of horror. You may find yourself rooting for the killer or you may not. Either way, enjoy the ride.

This is a short story that as you read it you find yourself rooting for Dank. He could be the guy everyone thinks he is it maybe he’s the one no one knows who they are and sometimes those are truly the ones you watch for.

 

Insanity by Ed Bar

 

Blurb – 

Warning: This book contains graphic descriptions of violence and disturbing imagery, and may trigger past traumatic events. Read at your own risk.

What if insanity wasn’t a condition? What if it was a consciousness? An uncaring entity that can infect the hearts and minds of anyone at anytime?

Insanity is a horror anthology of 13 interlocking, bone-chilling tales of innocent lives being claimed in the name of the eternal sentience of insanity. It feeds on terror, and it hungers for you. This is one book you will be too terrified to put down. Will you be safe? Can you escape the Insanity?

 

Our Reviews – 

Misti – 

This is probably the most horror book I’ve read in a very long time. It is an anthology however as one story ends it flows into another and when your done you realize how they are all linked together. From the first turn of the page until the last line you read the author takes you on his journey of Insanity. As horrific as some of the events were that happened there was definitely snark in there to break it up. I’m not sure which story i enjoyed the most. I definitely recommend to anyone that enjoys slasher books and some off the wall antics I’ve never seen before.

 

The Meaning of Hell by T.S. Woolard

 

 

Blurb – 

From The Southern Tale Spinner’s darkest side, courtroom scenes so vivid, so engrossing, at first you may forget you’re reading a story from the man who’s been to Hell himself, the transgressive terror T.S. Woolard–until the fists fly out of the page and grab you by the throat. Yes, this is Hell, and it’s going to get so much worse for Attorney John Rhaport. John represents an insane and guilty client, a man who committed heinous crimes–a giant who terrifies John and pulls him into Hell. Horrific scenes of violence will flow like ice water through your veins. Unexpected plot twists and a riveting ending wrap up this gripping page-turner. By adding his transgressive talents to the Courtroom Thriller, I believe T.S. Woolard has created an exciting new genre.

Betsy – 

In The Meaning of Hell, we follow the trial of serial killer Jerry Thomas and the events that unfolded afterward. We get a look into the mind of Jerry Thomas through his defense attorney John Rhaport. In his quest to find a defense of Jerry we find him pouring through files from a psychiatrist he saw as a young adult Dr. Steinhardt. We see how depraved and disturbed Jerry truly is as well as almost understand why he’s become the killer he has. A fantastic story that takes you on a disturbing ride, however, once it’s over you’re looking for more. A definite must read for horror and thriller lovers.

Antonette – 

This was a fun and sexy story. Who wouldn’t want to have a threesome with 2 sexy men who would worship them? I know I would! This story definitely lived up to its name and put the “sin” in Sin City. The characters were great and their chemistry was off the charts hot.

Derek Masters continues to wow me with his storytelling and I’ve enjoyed seeing his writing develop with each story. He definitely did the job in delivering an easy read that sucked me in from beginning to end. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a sexy quickie.

Betsy – 

A short & steamy read. The chemistry between Delilah, Ryan & Gavin was off the charts. Delilah’s relationship with her bestie/roommate as well as their snarky conversations reminded me of some of the best conversations with friends. I would have loved even more words about these three.

 

The Fade Books 1-3 (S E Rise’s The Fade series) by S.E. Rise

Blurb – 

There is a place of lost and forgotten things, where wind swept angels of newspapers old dance upon the breeze of the past. Powerful machines push the memories into the dark of oblivion and the streets are paved with lost keys. It is a place where the messages in bottles are washed upon the shore of the River Styx and the old forgotten paths can unerringly lead you home. It is the place of Myth and Legend.

Misti –

In this story you meet Jack, a reaper, one of many who severs the souls of the dead. However, the twist a bit in this is that if you see him once you loose eye contact with him he disappears from your memory. One day he meets a woman that could possible change his life as he knows it. This author paints a vivid picture of the Fade and makes you so engrossed in the story that you keep reading page by page cause you can’t put it down. This is definitely a paranormal book lover must read. Also a book for those that like romance because there is the question of can love conquer all?

As you move into the next part you learn more about The Fade and I honestly thought the author would pick up where he left off with Jack and Bryn.  However, I’m learning not to expect anything.  Here you will be introduced to Ginger that’s a gypsy and she’s done everything she can to be with the Demon that she loved.

As the book moves into the last part you will the learn more about the Witch and how she fits in as you start seeing the story being laid before your eyes.  The imagination this author has makes you definitely wonder what his other books are like.  I definitely would recommend this series to any paranormal lover because you are literally stuck in this world that the author has built himself and it’s like no other.
