Where There's Smoke Front Cover

This cover was designed by Lauren Perry of L. Perry Designs.

 

About WHERE THERE’S SMOKE:

There is something to be said for letting go. Ryland Roberts knows that better than anyone. He’d let go of his ambitions, of his family and—most of all—of her. He’d perfected the art of putting his past behind him and accepted the fact that the town he wanted to leave in his rearview was the place where he was going to live out his days. But sometimes the past doesn’t just go away. Sometimes it comes back to haunt you.

Piper Jameson convinced herself that she left for all the right reasons. She’d saved people by leaving—made sure that they weren’t tainted by her rebellious ways. When her little sister asks her to come home and say goodbye to their ailing mother, she’s forced to see that things aren’t always as they seem. The people who she’d left behind might not have been saved at all.

In the amount of time it takes a bullet to travel from point A to point B, Piper and Ryland will have to put their feelings for each other aside and make a choice. Forced on the run with Piper’s sister, they begin to understand that the future they thought was gone was never really lost.

BLURB

Love is ugly and secrets will destroy you.KATI don’t beg.
I don’t cry.
And I don’t give second chances.Ream, the lead guitarist of the rock band Tear Asunder, deserves a gold medal for best dick move ever when he ran the moment he discovered my secret after two days of hot sex. Then he brings some chick to my coming home party from the hospital—after being shot.
I hate him.Until …Ream’s six foot two frame unfolds out of the car after being gone on tour for eight months. I stared. And in my defense, any girl would stare. It would almost be rude not to because Ream was the type of guy who stood out. Not because he was loud and obnoxious. No, it was because he was the complete opposite. Subtle and dangerously quiet. If he spoke, you’d better hope he liked you because otherwise you’d be falling at his feet begging for mercy. Except me … I don’t beg—ever.
But when our eyes locked, it was Ream’s steady confidence that had my nerves shooting off like jet sprinklers.Then…Ream told me he didn’t need a second chance because he was still working on his first.

REAM

Sex is ugly. It’s using someone for your own narcissistic pleasure. I did it, but hated it—until her. She was unfuckinexpected. Then I had to wreck our beginning with my screwed up past. I don’t deserve her, but I’m selfish and I’m taking her anyway. This is who I am and it’s too late to change me.

A contemporary romance with lots of angst.

Gonna try something new with this review, let me know if you like it or if I should go back to my previous set up.

What I liked: I liked that it was funny, sexy and suspenful. I liked that it provided different points of views (POV). Blake is hilarious and oh so sexy. I might not approve of some of the things he does, but that’s what makes him him.

What I didn’t like: There were a few similarities to other books I’ve recently read. But to be honest, the amount of books I read and a lot of them being the same genre, well its bound to happen here and there.

Would I recommend: Absofuckinglutely! Nelle had be laughing at one point and squeezing my legs tight the next. I’ve read a few of Nelle’s books and I would recommend them all. And they’re quick reads too, approx 100 pages each so you can probably read both the same day.

Favorite quote: “Bradley smelled of antiseptic; that man had smelled of sex”

Happy Reading

I’m a big fan of J. Sterling’s books and I was so excited to read this one too! Seeing Stars is the story of Madison, a smart girl working for a talent agency and Walker, hot and smexy rock star. Madison attends one of his concerts one night and is pulled onstage and then, to her surprise but not joy, is pursued by the hot Walker.

This book was very sweet and while I enjoyed Madison and Walker’s story, I found myself wanting more. It felt a little rushed, especially by the end. The characters were great personalities and I really wanted to know more about them. I do have to say that I enjoyed the little twist thrown in and definitely didn’t see it coming. J

Overall this was a fast and sweet read with very little angst, definitely a nice afternoon or beach read.

I received a complimentary copy for review for SMIBookClub.

So after a few days of putting my heart back together, an hour chat w/ M(Rock Stars Of Romance) on Facebook, and a live read with Rachel and author K Larsen on Twitter, I still don’t know what to say. This book left me blank. I started this book without reading any spoilers, blurbs, teasers. I knew nothing about it except that Tarryn was writing it. Her Love Me With Lies series was one of my favorites of 2013. So yes I was already aware of her phenomenal writing.

I want to be able to explain this to you without giving you any spoilers. That would mess up the story, in my own opinion. It’s full of so many emotions, which I’m sure you’re aware of you’ve read her previous books. She’s really good at making you laugh and seconds later you’re screaming at your iPad. Then you’re happy again and all of a sudden tears just come out of no where. You need a nice heavy drink or maybe some drugs. I’m not Continue reading ‘Review [Mud Vein] by Tarryn Fisher’

Review: [Guns: The Spencer Book] (Rook and Ronin Spinoff) by JA Huss

Before you read this book, it is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you read the following:

Tragic (Rook and Ronin #1)

Manic (Rook and Ronin #2)

Panic (Rook and Ronin #3)

Slack (Ford’s novella)*

Taut (Ford’s book)

Bomb (Spencer’s novella)*

As the author mentioned in this book synopsis, everything that happens in Guns is a result of the actions taken in the previous books (*the novellas aren’t required, but they will help you learn more about the men, Ford and Spencer).  The Team – Ronin, Ford and Spencer – have made some past mistakes/crimes and pissed off a lot of people.  Those people are now looking for payback.

guy on bike

Guns is Spencer Strike’s story.  He’s the sexy bike builder, body painter, and provides security for the Team (Ronin is the cover man/liar, Ford is the hacker).  His buddies have found love with their women, Rook and Ashleigh, and since brought their women into the Team.  Spencer has found love too with his “Bombshell” Veronica Vaughn, but unlike his buddies, he is afraid to bring her into the Team because he doesn’t want her to be harmed.  He has realized that his Team’s luck is running out and doesn’t want his Bombshell hurt because of his previous mistakes.  So he pushes her away, treats her like he doesn’t care, so people watching him don’t see the truth.  She is the love of his life.  Problem is, she’s not aware why he keeps pushing her away and toying with her emotions, and he just might lose her altogether.

This book alternates between Veronica and Spencer’s POVs and has several flashbacks which show how the couple was before Spencer was denying his love.  It’s in these flashbacks when you can see why Veronica has such a tough time moving on, despite being treated badly by Spencer.  That’s not to say she didn’t frustrate me.  It seemed she had 2 brains.  One that had clear thoughts and a plan to move on from Spencer, and one that completely turned off whenever he got close.  But, the chemistry between Spencer and his Bombshell is off the charts.  One touch from Spencer makes her shudder, her tell that she’s turned on.

But no matter what, no matter how many times I take her body, no matter how public the taking is, no matter how dirty the talk – the thing that turns me on the most about my Bombshell is the shudder that runs through her body each and every single time we are started.  It’s my drug, and I’m addicted to it.

That shudder says, You rock my fucking world, Spencer Strike.

Guns paint

One of my favorite parts of the book is when Ronin and Ford get caught up discussing their women, annoying Spencer.

“We don’t have time to talk about candy pussy.”

“Spencer,” Ronin pipes up.  “There is always time for candy pussy.”

When a stranger, Bobbi Mansi (Tet), comes to town, Veronica and Spencer’s already tenuous relationship is threatened.  With Veronica left out of the T Continue reading ‘Review: [Guns: The Spencer Book] (Rook and Ronin Spinoff) by JA Huss’

Review Summary:  high school crushes always get me, thus my reason for wanting to read it.

Mick is alpha male, Dom, a bit of a sadist and loves rope play. He is a typical Dom that needs control. Alexandra is a back in town.. a town she left because of Mick. Now that the she’s back, she is willing to get Mick anyway she can. So, these to have good chemistry… both are stubborn in their way and both want to be with each other. What I liked about this book was the drive that Allie had to pursue a man.. a Dom specially…. I think that gave the story a good way to start. But felt like half way through the book the story got a bit repetitive for me. Mick and Ally wanted to be together but the way and things they said were confusing to me.  This book is your normal Dominant/Submi Continue reading ‘#SMUTBookFirdays | Review [Dangerously Bound] (Dangerous #1) by Eden Bradley’

What I liked: It’s a mini series and although in order to get the full story you have to keep reading, this installment didn’t really feel like it ended in a cliffhanger. I actually really enjoyed how it ended and I can’t wait to see where it goes. There was a lot of mystery surrounding where Lilly is and who is holding her captive, especially given the note handed to her and I was immediately taken in with the little snippets into a few various time periods. The flashbacks to her childhood are rather odd but adds to the mystery and I’m interested to see where the story she told of her as a girl fit into the current story.

What I didn’t like: There wasn’t anything I didn’t like. I found myself feeling slightly stalled in the middle for the slightest bit but overall, I found myself very interested. The story felt very similar to another story I’ve read but held its own and kept me wanting more.

Would I Recommend: Sure! If you’re looking for a mystery filled miniseries with new releases coming out quickly, I’d say absolutely!

About Uncovering You #1

When I wake up in a dark, unfamiliar room, I have no idea what’s waiting for me in the shadows. My imagination conjures up demons of the worst kind.Reality is much worse:A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning.

I am presented with a vile contract and asked to sign. It outlines the terms of my servitude. The only information I have about my captor are the two small letters inked at the bottom:

J.S.

Armed with only my memories, I must do everything I can to avoid becoming ensnared in his twisted mind games. But in the end, it all comes down to one choice:

Resist and die.

Or submit, and sign my life away

Who doesn’t love a love triangle right? wrong! well not in reality but im kind of a sucker for those when it comes to books! I haven’t really read one in awhile, BECAUSE the last one I read gave me a freakin headache and I wanted to throw my kindle! With Man of my dreams it wasn’t so much of a love triangle more of a woman being caught between her past and present!

Mia Murphy like many of us had a high school crush only she didn’t have the guts to tell him and one night at a party when she, said “Enough, tonight im getting my man!” well it didn’t turn out like that and she never saw him again…. until years later.

His name is Noah Matheson and she desired him to the fullest for many years

Excerpt

CHAPTER 1

 

JUNE

 

“It’s going to be another hot one.”

This was the last thing the bubbly radio forecaster announced before Julian Capeletti switched off the radio. It was just too damn early in the morning for that much perkiness.

“Great,” he grumbled as he sat up in bed and tried to rub the sleep from his face.

He hated mornings. Some people heard birds chirping, appreciated sunrises, and saw everything through rainbow-colored glasses in the early morning hours, but that just wasn’t him.

Especially when he didn’t have work.

He just couldn’t muster the energy needed to be as functional as he was in the late hours—when he found his groove and could tackle even the most complex third plane mathematical equation anyone could throw at him. Mornings, well, it was a short list. Wake up, shower, drink coffee. Oh yeah, and don’t forget to get dressed somewhere in between. He didn’t need to have the perky announcer tell him about the weather, he could feel it firsthand as the sweat began to trickle down his chest.

“Fucking gross,” he moaned as he rose from bed and made his way to the bathroom.

He followed the same routine every morning. He stared at himself in the mirror, in search of…what, who knew. He splashed some water on his face and looked again. Maybe he should try holy water or some other miracle that would change what stared back at him. He saw the hint of dark circles under his eyes and he hated it.

Vanity wasn’t the issue, the dark circles were a reminder of the turn of bad luck that had plagued him for almost two years.

Like a series of snapshots, he always ran the images of that day through his mind. The one that marked the beginning of when it all started going to shit with no end in sight. Well, more than usual at least. The day his last steady foreman project ended because the owner faced trafficking charges and fled the country to avoid his impending capture. With assets frozen, the site was closed down and everyone was out of a job and a steady paycheck. He’d left work early to seek comfort in the arms of his partner, an eternal optimist, and found him busy giving comfort of a different type to another guy.

“Asshole,” he mumbled into the towel as he dried his face. Maybe a shower would work. Even if it didn’t wake him up, at least it would wash away the disgusting reminder of the South Florida blazing summer heat and humidity.

Freshly showered, Julian read the classifieds as he sipped his coffee. He closed his eyes and exhaled, enjoying the caffeine and sugar slowly bringing him to life. Finally. He skimmed the want ads searching for anything new that morning, something he hadn’t already called on that week. He grabbed the monthly community paper and spotted the listing with a large Continue reading ‘Book Spotlight [A Better Man] (The Men of Halfway House) by Jamie Reese’
