Things have been crazy lately, and not just because of the holiday season. I've sadly neglected all of my reviews and book promo. :( I have read one OMG this is AMAZING book (Larissa Ione's Revenant)


And a few that I really enjoyed...  both of them I received eARC copies as an Avon Addict (boy am I addicted!!!!)

Review of I BELONG TO YOU: An Inside Out Novel by Lisa Renee Jones

Publisher's blurb:
The stunning conclusion to Mark and Crystal’s relationship in the passionate, all-consuming Inside Out series by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.


Being that person, that man, is how I define myself, how I allow the rest of the world to define me as well. And now, with a terrible loss shredding me inside out and someone trying to destroy my family to punish me, control is more important than ever. It is everything. It is what I need. It is all I need. Or maybe I just need…her.


  Finally, Mark's story!!! Since BEING ME, I was eager to hear what made Mark Compton act the way he did. We had littler teasers and nudges throughout the series and in his and Crystal's novellas, but here we get the whole story!  

Mark was so wounded and was (silently) crying out for help. He made an absolute mess of his relationship with Rebecca and wasn't ready to try again. Crystal saw that he was hurting and wanted to take away his pain, though she in no way wanted to start a relationship with him.

Mark Compton is one of my top book boyfriends of all time and I was thrilled that Lisa Renee Jones gave him a heroine that didn't lay down and take his 'Master' crap. Crystal was a strong woman who stood up for herself and wouldn't let Mark walk all over her.  They were perfect together.  Each of them needs each other equally and they found a love in each other that can't be topped.


There are so many questions answered in this book that left me satisfied as a reader. We know what has happened to Rebecca and who was responsible. We learn why Mark turned into the Master and why control is so important to him. Mark is forced to acknowledge his emotions, which isn't easy for him.

Review: LETTING GO by Molly McAdams

Buy on Amazon
Molly McAdams has created a heartfelt story of love and loss and love again.  Two years ago Grey and Jagger lost their best friend, and Grey's fiancee Ben. Grey had a difficult time coping with the loss, but Jagger was never far from her side.  When Jagger's true feelings for Grey come out, she is at first shocked, but soon discovers that maybe it's time to move on, though guilt is strong on her mind as she isn't sure if she is betraying Ben's memory.

I loved the characters that Ms. McAdams has created. They are multidimensional and very complex. There are so many emotions that passed through me as I read LETTING GO. Sadness, anger, guilt, happiness, and contentment were all things I felt as I read the story. 

Jagger and Grey are so good for each other in their love, and Jagger's sweet understanding of Grey in her grief and his patience as he waits for her to discover her feelings.  Grey's family is wonderful, while Jagger's family is broken, but I loved his sister, Charlie and hope that she can find her HEA someday.

Most people are happy that Grey is finally able to move on, though there are a few that find her actions selfish. Ms. McAdams threw me for a loop though with a bombshell that comes toward the end of the story.  Something that I never saw coming.

This was my first Molly McAdams's book, but it will not be my last.  I look forward to discovering more of her characters and the world she puts them in.

The New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author returns with a sizzling novel of love, loss, guilt, and forgiveness.

Grey and Ben fell in love at thirteen and believed they’d be together forever. But three days before their wedding, the twenty-year-old groom-to-be suddenly died from an unknown heart condition, destroying his would-be-bride’s world. If it hadn’t been for their best friend, Jagger, Grey never would have made it through those last two years to graduation. He’s the only one who understands her pain, the only one who knows what it’s like to force yourself to keep moving when your dreams are shattered. Jagger swears he’ll always be there for her, but no one has ever been able to hold on to him. He’s not the kind of guy to settle down.

It’s true that no one has ever been able to keep Jagger—because he’s only ever belonged to Grey. While everyone else worries over Grey’s fragility, he’s the only one who sees her strength. Yet as much as he wants Grey, he knows her heart will always be with Ben. Still they can’t deny the heat that is growing between them—a passion that soon becomes too hot to handle. But admitting their feelings for each other means they’ve got to face the past. Is being together what Ben would have wanted . . . or a betrayal of his memory that will eventually destroy them both?

About the Author:
Molly McAdams grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry daughter. Her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach, which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she's not at work, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.

(Stand-Alone Novella)
play with me cover.jpg

RELEASE DATE: October 28thplay with me-live.jpg

The warmth of Thanksgiving gives a dedicated reporter and a powerful businessman a chance to count their blessings in this tender, sensual novella from Lisa Renee Jones.
Kali Miller has spent three years reporting fluff stories for a small-town Texas paper, waiting for the opportunity to pen the article that will launch her career to new heights. That dream has never felt further away when she suddenly finds herself out of work, forced to take a job as an executive secretary at a Las Vegas casino. But that’s exactly where Kali meets the subject of what will surely be a shocking exposé: her boss, Damion Ward, the casino’s arrogant and undeniably sexy CEO.
Watching Damion make his cold, calculating business maneuvers, Kali is positive she’s doing the right thing. But after Damion invites her to help him plan a Thanksgiving charity event, Kali begins to see another side of the man. And when she surrenders to the exhilarating tension that’s been simmering between them since day one, Kali becomes part of her own story, which she hopes will have a happy ending.

I hear Damion shout, but I do not stop. I spot an open elevator and slip inside moments before it closes. I hesitate only briefly, then punch the button for the office floor. If I go to my room, Damion will follow, and I will cave and let him in. I can’t talk to him until I figure out what I’m feeling. Not right now. I won’t talk to him right now.
Hugging myself, I wait for my floor, trying to stop the shaking. Damn it, I’m weak. I don’t want to be weak. The elevator dings for my floor and I exit. Dana is on the phone and waves at me, giving me a smile I just can’t return. At my desk, I all but fall into my chair and will myself not to cry. I grab a stack of mail and start opening it, trying to stay sane.
I know the moment Damion is in the lobby, the scent of him blistering my nostrils. He is like a drug. I think I’ve become that to him, too. He is risking too much for me. I have to leave here, and him, and it’s going to destroy me.
Suddenly he is standing beside me, towering over me. “Let’s go talk.”
I don’t look at him. “No. Not now.”
I turn to him and snap, “Not. Now.”
“Yes,” he says, turning my chair to face him, his hands on the arms. “Now.”
“Write me up, Damion, fire me, but I am not ready to talk.”
“Hey, Kali—”
The sound of Dana’s voice makes me cringe, and I can’t even look at her. “I, uh,” she stammers from behind me, and I hear her departing steps.
“Either come with me,” Damion warns tightly, “or I’ll pick you up and carry you.”
“Don’t even think about it.”
He pulls me to my feet and drags me into his office, shutting the door and locking it. I try to escape and at least put distance between us. His hand comes down on my arm and he turns me to face him.
I blast him. “You just told the whole damn place that we’re together when we haven’t even really been together. Why would you do that? Why?”
He maneuvers me against the wall, framing my body with his. “We are together, and if you didn’t believe that, you wouldn’t have signed that notarized letter.”
“We aren’t together, and now we won’t ever be together. I have to leave. I can’t stay. I can’t let you get fired over me.”
“I won’t let you go, and I won’t get fired.”
“I had a right to privacy. Terrance should have asked permission to share my personal affairs, and don’t tell me I signed a form or I might hurt you right now. Kent and my alcoholic asshole father—who thinks if he puts ‘functional’ before the ‘alcoholic’ it’s actually acceptable—weren’t supposed to know I’m here. If I wanted them to know, I would have told them.”
“And I didn’t run away from those people, like you accused me of. I chose to shut them out and be happy. This was supposed to be my place and now it isn’t. Now they know I’m here and everyone here knows about us.”
“This is your place, Kali, and I’m not letting you go without a fight.” His fingers twine in my hair, tilting my head back, forcing me to look at him. “We might be new, Kali, but we’re damn good together.”
“What about—”
“We’ll figure it out. Together, Kali. We’ll figure it out together.” And then his mouth closes down on mine, his tongue stroking past my lips, his palm molding me close to him. I try to resist, but it’s more because I feel I have to, because I should. Only I don’t want to resist this man. Not now and not since the moment I met him. I cave to my need for him, moaning as I sink into the kiss. I know we are headed for trouble, and I’ve had enough trouble. But I have not had enough of him.
I tug at his shirt, suddenly desperate to feel his skin next to mine. To know if it will feel as good as I’ve imagined it would. My fingers slide beneath the cotton material, absorbing his body heat and the warmth of taut skin over hard muscle.
His mouth trails over my cheek to my ear. “Together,” he promises again, his warm breath teasing my sensitive flesh and sending a shiver down my spine.
“Yes,” I whisper, and I don’t let myself think about trouble or tomorrow. I cling to him, arching my body into his, trying to get closer to him, afraid I will never get close enough.
He cups the back of my head, slanting his mouth over mine, kissing me deeply, passionately. Breaking only to seductively trail his lips over my jaw, my neck, my ear, and I am lost in the haze of desire.
“I want you naked,” he murmurs, tugging my dress up over my hips, and, with that, an unwelcome jolt of reality hits me.
I grab at my dress and pant, “Wait. We can’t. Not here. We could get caught.”
“The door is locked.” He turns me to face the wall, pressing my hands to it, his on top of mine, his big, wonderful body encasing me. He leans in close, his mouth at my ear. “And,” he murmurs, “if you’re still worried about getting caught, I need to do a better job of distracting you.” He tugs on the zipper of my dress, and I open my mouth to resist, only to moan as his tongue begins to follow the metal downward. And his tongue is magic burning through me, sending waves of sensations to every nerve ending I own.

NEED YOU NOW 1001 Dark Nights release day BLITZ

A new Lisa Renee Jones book is out today! I haven't read this one yet, but you know I'll be scooping it up.

Need you now.jpg
Life is hard. Life leaves you beaten, broken...alone. Then one day, a stranger touches your hand and you feel something intense, unforgettable, but yet, you want to forget. You need to forget. It’s safer than believing in things you’ve decided don’t exist. You know all about shattered promises and lost hope. You know them so much better than you know this excited, warm, wonderful feeling, and it scares you. He scares you, but he also makes you feel alive again. He makes you realize you haven’t really been living. You’re surviving and you fear he’s the one who’ll make you forget how to keep doing it. But what if he’s the one who changes everything?

Review of BURN FOR ME: A Hidden Legacy Novel book 1 by Ilona Andrews

Publisher's Blurb:
#1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews launches a brand-new Hidden Legacy series, in which one woman must place her trust in a seductive, dangerous man who sets off an even more dangerous desire . . .
Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile situation. Nevada isn’t sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.
Then she’s kidnapped by Connor “Mad” Rogan—a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run and wanting to surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive.  

Rogan’s after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she’s getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world.


Ilona Andrews has created an extraordinary cast of characters set in an action-packed world of magic. I was sucked into the story from page one and had difficulty putting the book down. 

Nevada Baylor is the head of Baylor Investigative Agency, her family owned business. The entire Baylor family is very entertaining and I really enjoyed the banter between the family. Nevada's extremely witty in her interactions with all of the characters, though not in a slap-stick way. I loved her attitude and that she didn't waiver from her beliefs and moral code. Her powers are unique, and she is only now learning how to tap into her magic. 
Mad Rogan is an excellent counterpart for Nevada. There is a depth to him that is barely touched upon that really needs to be explored. There is an undeniable chemistry between them that I am really looking forward to watching grow and develop. And I can't wait until they fulfil their passion...Mad is ready, but Nevada is hesitant with very good reason.

I loved watching Nevada and Mad battle the evil that is trying to destroy their world. They had a few kinks to work out, but once they set their minds to it, they worked brilliantly together combating a power that seemed impossible to stop.

There is so much left unanswered that I am already looking forward to visiting this world and all of the characters again. Augustine Montgomery, Lenora Jordan, Bern, Grandma Frida are just a few of the other characters I want to see more of. I have a feeling that there will be quite a bit more evil to be combated, and none of the battles will be easy.

BURN FOR ME is one of those books that you just don't want to end...and really it doesn't since it's the first book of a series. Unfortunately, now I need to wait for the next book to come out to get more of Nevada and Mad!!! I hope the wait isn't too long. In the meantime I guess I'm just going to have to glom onto all of the previously released Ilona Andrews books since BURN FOR ME is the first book I've read by the husband and wife writing duo.

There was one small thing that bugged me. There is a paragraph in the book that talked about how Army MOSs (job classifications) transfer over into civilian life that really irked me. Most wouldn't be bothered by this, but, as both my husband and I are Army veterans, it annoyed me. To quote: “Anything in 68 category, medical, was good. Or 91B, wheeled vehicle mechanic. Eleven Bravo wasn't one of those MOSs. It was the backbone of the army, but in the civilian world, there wasn't much you could do with that.” I disagree with this. I know many 11B veterans, my husband included, whose experience and training in the military has translated well into the civilian world and are now in law enforcement, on security forces, or in other criminal justice jobs. Sorry for the mini-rant, but I hate that they get such a poor rap.

He is the love of all her lives…

FURIOUS FIRE: Grimm’s Circle, Book 8
Thomas Finn, troublemaker, gunslinger, guardian angel…loner. More than a hundred and fifty years ago, he was shot in the back then brought back to life just in time to watch a demon masquerading as his best friend kill the love of his life.
Now, as a Grimm, he satisfies his need for vengeance hunting down demons like the ones that took Rebecca from him. His mission: kill as many as he can, then, when the time comes, go down in a blaze of glory. But with each kill, he comes closer to a line no angel should cross.
Her name was Rebecca. Then it was Tilly. Then Ada. Now, Kallypso. She’s lived so many lives, she can’t even remember when or why it started. All she knows is, she’s always searching for a man with golden eyes that make her burn. And when she finds him—as she always does—she knows that spark of joy means she’s only seconds away from death…again.
This time will be no different…unless something breaks the cycle once and for all.
Warning: Contains the Groundhog Day of star-crossed lovers, a pissed-off guardian angel, a demon-hunter with an axe to grind, and the battle to end all battles. Be warned…there’s pain ahead in this book. Oh, and that HEA finally happens. For these two, anyway.

It took years for Adam to stop drowning his regrets in alcohol, and running the local bar doesn’t make it any easier—especially not when everyone he knows gathers there to discuss the shocking allegations that have shattered his hometown. When another murder rocks sleepy Madison to its core, it becomes chillingly clear that even more vicious wounds are waiting to be exposed.
Nothing is sacred anymore, and no one is safe, least of all the mystery woman who shows up in town out of the blue, looking like every fantasy Adam’s ever had. She may have her own dangerous secrets, but she can’t ignore the urgent heat between them any more than he can.

What a Wallflower Wants
By Maya Rodale

Miss Prudence Merryweather and Viscount Castleton find themselves stranded at a country inn...with secrets. There is only one thing to do: he asks her to dance.

Mini excerpt:
“Just one dance…that is all,” Castleton said. “I promise I won’t get any ideas.”
Prudence gazed up at him. Too bad she couldn’t explain why she was so hesitant. She was wasting her life, letting this fear hold her back. There was a handsome man before her, who had shown her nothing but kindness, and all he wanted was a dance. The truth was: she yearned in her heart of hearts to dance with him.
“All right,” she said softly.
The last time she placed her hand in another man’s it was the beginning of the end.
They began to dance.
She did not, as she feared, forget the steps. Hours and hours of her life spent practicing them so when this moment came—waltzing in the arms of a handsome man—she could move in time to the music without counting to three and so she could look into smoldering gaze instead of at her feet.
Prue forced her breath to be even. In. Out. In. Out. She willed her heart to beat in a steady rhythm as she tried to reclaim power over her emotions and fears.
Castleton’s gaze settled on her face. She peered up at him. This time she really looked at him focusing on his mouth, which was firm, sensual and smiling encouragingly.
“Are you having fun yet?” Castleton asked her affectionately.
Her gaze flew up to his. Ah, those eyes. Knowing. Dark.

Reading for fun...

Now that the kids are headed back to school and the weather is starting to get a bit cooler, I'm hoping to find a bit more time to read for pleasure. These are a few of the books I'm looking at reading...stay tuned because in a few weeks I'm going to be giving away a paperback copy of Candis Terry's  SOMETHING SWEETER.

 Publisher's blurb:
To ruin a man’s life once takes a regrettable mistake.
To do so twice takes a woman like Julianne Baxter.
Eleven months ago, Julianne’s statement to the authorities wrongly implicated Patrick, the new Earl of Haversham, in his older brother’s death. The chit is as much trouble as her red hair suggests, and just as captivating. Now she has impetuously tracked him to the wilds of Scotland, insisting that he return home to face a murder charge and save his family from ruin. A clandestine wedding may be the only way to save her reputation—and his neck from the hangman’s noose.

Julianne has no objection to the match. More and more she’s convinced of Patrick’s innocence, though when it comes to igniting her passions, the man is all too guilty. And if they can only clear his name, a marriage made in haste could bring about the most extraordinary pleasure…

Publisher's Blurb:
The men in Texas are hard to resist . . .
Seattle event planner Allison Lane is an expert at delivering the perfect wedding—even if she might not exactly believe in the whole “’til death do us part” thing. When her father decides to tie the knot with a woman he barely knows, Allison heads to Sweet, Texas, to make sure his new honey is the real deal. What she didn’t expect to find at the local honky-tonk was a sexy Southern man as bent on charming her pants off as he is on blowing her “true love doesn’t exist” theory all to hell.

And they always promise . . .
Veterinarian, former Marine, and Sweet’s favorite playboy Jesse Wilder takes one look at Allison and knows she’s a handful of trouble he can’t deny. But even after a sizzling kiss and obvious mutual attraction, it seems Allison has no such problem. When Jesse uncovers her sweet side, can he crush his playboy image, melt her cynical heart, and change her mind about taking a trip down the aisle?

Publisher's Blurb:
The last woman on earth he would ever touch . . .
Declan, the Duke of Banbury, has no interest in ushering Rosalie Hughes, his stepsister, into society.Dumped on him with nowhere else to go, he's determined to rid himself of the headstrong debutante by bestowing on her an obscenely large dowry . . . making her the most sought-after heiress of the Season.

. . . is about to become the only one he wants
But Rosalie isn't about to go along with Declan's plans. Surrounded by fortune hunters, how is she supposed to find a man who truly wants her? Taking control of her fate, Rosalie dons a disguise and sneaks into Sodom, a private club host to all manner of illicit activity—and frequented by her infuriatingly handsome stepbrother.
In a shadowed alcove, Declan can't resist the masked temptress who sets his blood afire . . . any more than Rosalie can deny her longing for a man who will send her into ruin.
