Human trafficking isn't something you read a lot about and T.K. Leigh wrote about in a way that sticks you right in the middle of what it could be like from many angles. From the victim, and the people who love them, to the creeps behind it all..l This book reminded me that no matter what your "dark" is always look for the "light" and you will find it. - Kim, Sinful Thoughts Book Blog

Have you ever read a book and thought "There is no way the author will ever be able to top that?" Well, that is how I felt after I finished the Beautiful Mess Series by T.K. Leigh. Boy, was I wrong... I am calling it now... Heart of Light...BEST READ OF 2014!! Heart of Light is a firestorm of emotion... There was never an emotion that wasn't perfectly presented through T.K.'s words. She is a master at her craft and you can tell that she pours not only her heart and soul into every single sentence but these characters, these thoughts are her priceless gift that she so generously shares with her fans. - Melissa, The Truth About Fiction Book Blog

This book...will play at every emotion possible to feel. But it will be worth every minute you spend reading it. It is a lesson to us as well that the underlying problem this book revolves around is truly out there and in our own neighborhoods, back yards, cities and towns.Please, I urge you, as a reader to take the time and read this book. It has definitely touched me in a way I wasn't expecting. And just knowing that this problem is out there, definitely will have you being more attentive to what is around you. - Tonya, Turn The Page Book Blog

     I didn’t know where it came from, only that the second the impulse struck, I acted on it. Holding his gaze, I leaned in, my lips connecting with his. My boldness surprised him, our mouths ever so slightly pressed together before I pulled back.
     The air around us stilled, the sound of my heart thudding loudly in my ears as I released the breath I’d been holding. “Sorry,” I softly uttered. “I couldn’t resist.”
     “Then I hope you forgive me, as well.” The tension between us was practically palpable. 
     “For what?” I didn’t move a muscle, our faces still close enough that I could feel his subtle exhale across my skin.
     “This.” Cradling my cheek in his hand, his fingers threading through my loose hair, Ryder pulled me in for a kiss that would forever etch itself into my memory. It was one that melted my insides, scorching the blissful sensations deep within me.
     This first kiss completely obliterated every single one that preceded it. As I parted my lips, Ryder’s tongue touched mine, and I knew this was the beginning of something much, much bigger than anything I’d ever experienced. There would be no going back.

How about this?

Letting Go of You 

Monday, August 18, 2014

Anchored Hearts series by J.M. Witt

I've found another author to add to my list of favorites!  J.M. Witt!!

When she recently asked who hadn't read the first two in her Anchored Hearts series, and I responded, she kindly gifted me a copy of each.  As soon as I finished the book I'd been reading, I jumped into Letting Go...and I didn't want to let it go.  Then I jumped right into Hiding Away.  I was so wrapped up in these characters that I didn't hesitate to buy Letting Go of You.

So who are these characters that claimed a piece of me?  First we meet Cassidy, an up and coming party planner whose life changes in one night.  Then we have James, aka JB3, the rich playboy who is hotter than the Sahara during a heat wave.  But what is his connection to that tragic night?  And what demons is he fighting?

But hottie just isn't enough!  We also have Cal (Calvin).  Cassidy's overprotective big brother. If you love a guy in uniform, he's the one for you - a cop and Army vet.  And when Cal meets Jane, the sparks fly!  Jane....who just happens to be James' cousin.

So did you meet everyone?  Nope!  Ms. Witt apparently thought the ladies needed more variety and so she also added Paul to the mix.  You'll have to read the series yourself to see how he fits in.

I do need to tell you that this series is definitely for the 18 and over crowd.  There is a lot of sex.  Some might say too much sex, but I'm not "some".  I don't have an issue with sex in the stories I read.  If it's written well and not just for the "wow" factor, it can make for a fabulous read.  And J.M. Witt writes it well.

There are so many things that I loved about this series.  The characters definitely got under my skin.  But the way it was written was so great.  We have book 1 (Letting Go) which was mainly about Cassidy and James.  With book 1.5 (Hiding Away), we have Cal and Jane's story.  It actually overlaps parts of Letting Go and we get to see things from another view.  I loved it!  And when we jump back to Letting Go of You, we're back to Cassidy and James, but even the beginning of that one overlaps Hiding Away.  Seeing things from each person's point of view was great.

COVER REVEAL: Saving Tatum by Micalea Smeltzer

Saving Tatum

Even tough girls need saving.
Jude Brooks is bad news. He’s the kind of guy that leaves behind a string of broken hearts and Tatum O’Connor is not about to be one of those girls, despite all of Jude’s advances. They have a past, and Tatum’s determined to make sure they don’t have a future.
Unfortunately for her, “no” isn’t a word in Jude’s vocabulary.
The more she backs away, the more he pushes.
But what if he pushes too far?
Tatum’s hiding a pain that no one sees and holding on to a hurt that may never heal. Letting Jude into her heart could shatter her completely—and what if she opens up to Jude and he can’t handle her baggage?
Love is never easy—especially when the person you’re falling for is the person you blame for the worst event in your life.
Love, heartache, and despair.
That’s the name of the game when you’re Saving Tatum.

Synopsis: Although this is part of a series, it can be read as a STANDALONE. Who would you become if you lost the only person who ever mattered? For twenty-six year old Dylan Hopkins, the answer is easy. He’s become no one. Memories of the happier times are all he has left as he finds himself meandering numbly through his now dull life. Though he cares about his work and family dearly, he’s yet to let himself find love again. Afraid of letting go of what he once had, Dylan chooses to keep his heart buried, where it belongs, having died a long time ago. Conner Michelson is about to change everything Dylan knows. He’s every bit the bad boy persona - tatted up, ex-MMA fighter, but after an injury leaves him unable to fight, he has to rethink his goals. Having just opened his own gym, Conner can cross his first major life accomplishment off his very short list. Next up: find a man he can settle down with and build a family. Seems simple enough - a dream most people have, but when he meets Dylan, his carefree, easy-going life is thrown into a tailspin. Determined to keep Dylan in his life, Conner vows to resurrect Dylan's long ago buried heart and let love live once more.

Tour: Game Changer by Collette West


Young, rich, and unaware of how seriously hot he is, Brooks Davison is tearing it up as the latest shortstop for the New York Kings, despite his tendency to blush whenever girls scream his name.

When a health scare forces his best friend, Kyle Roberts, off the team, no one can stomach the thought of replacing him, especially so close to the playoffs.

Until Kyle's sister, Sasha, steps in, convincing management to let her take his place. The idea of signing the first female player in Major League history proves too tempting for the Kings to resist.

Nevertheless, Brooks doesn't want any part of it. Sasha is Kyle's little sister, not some sideshow.

Yet when Kyle takes a turn for the worse, Brooks promises to do everything in his power to help Sasha win a championship for him. Because there's no way he's letting either of them down. Not now, not ever.

About Collette West

Collette West grew up as somewhat of a jock-nerd hybrid. Entering the world three weeks premature, her dad nearly missed her birth because he had seats behind the dugout for a sold-out, highly-anticipated match-up between two of baseball's biggest rivals. Not to be outdone, her book-loving mom taught her how to read by the time she was three. A love of the game coupled with an appreciation for the written word were instilled in Collette's impressionable brain from a young age. No wonder her characters believe in the philosophy: sports + romance = a little slice of heaven.
Splitting her time between the Pocono Mountains and Manhattan, Collette indulges her inner fangirl by going to as many games as she can from hockey to baseball and downloading every sports romance novel in existence onto her iPad. When she's not clicking away on her laptop, she enjoys walking her dog in Central Park, satisfying her caffeine craving at the Starbucks on Broadway and keeping an eye out for Mr. Right. But above all, she loves dishing with her readers. Email her at
She is the author of NIGHT GAMES and GAME CHANGER.

My Review
I love baseball!  There was a time when I spent all summer, and the spring and, if all went well, part of the fall, at the ballpark.  I've gone on road trips to other ballparks.  I've attended spring training.  I have seen thousands of games in my lifetime.  So when I was invited to read an ARC about baseball, I had to jump on it.

I could tell that Collette West knows the game.  That is a huge plus for me.  I think I would have had a hard time reading it if she tried to fake it, but she didn't.  She knows baseball!

Now I know that a girl playing for a major league team is pretty far fetched, but as a female who loves and knows the game, it was fun to live out that fantasy through the pages of this story.  Ms. West did a fantastic job of keeping the details real, which mixing in the fantasy of a "girl" playing in the major leagues.

If you love baseball and you love romance, you should be reading Collette West!  5 stars from me!

I'm in a fitful kind of sleep, one arm tossed over my face, one leg hanging off the bed, when I hear a rapping at my door.

My heart starts to pound. What if it's some demented stalker fan? I pull the covers up to my chin, determined to wait it out. But when it comes again, my curiosity gets the better of me and I inch slowly off the bed. Going stealthily step by step, I take a deep breath and look through the peephole.

I gasp when I see Brooks standing there.

My heart goes from a dull pounding to full-on somersault mode. I run my hands through my hair. I must look a wreck. But why should I care?

Because he's pacing outside my room in the middle of the night.

He knocks again, and I unfasten the chain and twist the lock before I change my mind. His feet are bare, and he’s wearing nothing but a faded Pac Man shirt and his boxers. He shouldn't be out here looking like he just rolled out of bed, but he is.

The way his eyes are roaming across my body makes me conscious of the fact that I'm only wearing a pair of itty-bitty shorts and a flimsy tank. I cross my ankles and fold my arms around myself in an attempt to bolster my courage.

"Don't," he whispers, stepping across the threshold. His hands encircle my wrists, gently pulling them away from my body. "You're too beautiful to cover yourself up." He presses the door closed with the back of his foot, extinguishing whatever light was streaming in from the hallway.

Now we're alone together in the darkness of my room, and I'm kind of glad he can't read my face. I'm too conflicted. I don't know what to do. I don't know why he's here. But if I'm being honest, I’m glad that he is. He's finally making the effort to reach out to me instead of leaving me in the barren wasteland I've been living in. Oh, how I’ve missed basking in the warmth of his smile.

“What are you doing here?” I ask, feeling the heat of his body against mine.

“Apologizin’,” he says in that sexy twang of his, drawing out every syllable.

Author: Cambria Hebert
Cover designer: Mae I Design
Release Date: August 29, 2014
Format: Ebook and Paperback

She’s trying to move on, but the past won’t let her go.

I fell in love once.

It was a big mistake, but the biggest mistake of all was staying with him.

He pushed me around. He cheated and treated me like trash.

I don’t feel sorry for myself, because I let him.

But no more.

I moved out. I'm saving my stripper's salary for an education that will get me somewhere better.

But breaking the chains of a shitty past isn’t easy. He says I owe him. He says we aren’t done. I don’t care what he says anymore.

I do care about Adam.

But my history tells me I’m not the best judge of men. And the fact Adam’s been married four times tells me he probably isn’t a safe choice.

I need safe. I need better. I need out.

If the past is any indication of my future, getting out isn’t going to be easy.

BLOG TOUR: Taste by Cambria Hebert

One taste is never enough…

Spencer Waller’s main purpose in life is to protect and serve. After spending years in the military, he gets a coveted spot on the Secret Service detail protecting the president. Spence doesn’t have time for women or all the work having a relationship with one requires. But just because he isn’t looking for a lady doesn’t mean he can’t appreciate a beautiful one when he sees her. 

And he makes it a point to see one in particular every single day.

Elle Bond has literally chopped and fried her way to the top of the food chain. Earning a coveted position in the White House as the president’s personal chef, she figures her professional life can only get better. Her personal life, on the other hand, could use a little bit of an overhaul, and because of that, she tries to ignore the charm-dripping cookie thief every time he comes into her kitchen. After all, she knows better than anyone that just one taste of something good is never enough.

One night after work, Elle is assaulted, threatened, and given an ultimatum. She can’t go to the police, and she sure as hell can’t do what she was ordered. 

But she has to. Or else.

Pale, shaken, and scared to death, Elle confides in Spence, and his protective instincts take over. Together, Elle and Spencer have to uncover a sinister plot and stop it before someone ends up dead.

From this close I could see the scruff growing in on his jaw area, it was dark blond too and made him look totally delicious.
Holding my shirt up with one hand he reached out with the other, gliding his fingers across my stomach, just below my ribcage. “Here?” he whispered, staring at the area.
I nodded, not bothering to glance down. The skin stung lightly as he caressed it. I didn’t care. Frankly, it could hurt like hell and I still would have let him touch it. Desire suffused my limbs, making them heavy. I felt goose bumps break out over my bare skin, and maybe I should have been embarrassed at my reaction because really there wasn’t anything sexual to what he was doing but my body sure as well acted like there was.
He frowned a little when my muscled trembled beneath him and glanced up. “Does it hurt?”
I shook my head, unable to speak.
“It’s just red. No blisters,” he answered, not looking back down at the “burn” but not pulling his fingers away either. Spencer watched me as he dragged the tops of his knuckles down the curve of my waist and moved across my navel.
“You burned anywhere else?” he rumbled in a low, throaty tone.
Man, I wish I was. I wished I could point out a thousand injuries just to give him a reason to not lift his hand.
“No,” I whispered.
He glided his hand over my hip and curved his palm around the dip in my waist, tugging me just a little bit closer. Just one step… that’s all I needed to take to bring my bare waist up against his body.
I tilted my head back when he bent, lowering his face toward mine. I anticipated his kiss, I craved it… part of me thought I might need it.
He stopped just inches away, his heavy lidded eyes spearing mine. “Nice drawers,” he whispered.
It took me a second to realize what he said, I was too far under his spell.
But when his lips turned up in an onery smirk his words penetrated my lust laden brain I gasped and leaped back, pulling my shirt from his hand and yanking it down over my “drawers”.
“Oh my God!” I burst out. “You are such a pig!”
He laughed. “What? I was paying you a compliment.”
I groaned, still yanking at the hem of my shirt. “You’re making fun of me!” I challenged.
He laid a hand over his heart and looked at me solemnly. “I do swear that no one wears polka dots like you do.”
I. Was. Going. To. Die. Of embarrassment.

My Review

I have loved every story in the Take It Off series and for the longest time, Tease has been my favorite.  But I think it's been knocked off the top of the stripper pole and replaced by a tray of cookies.  Taste is now my new favorite!  Spencer is super sexy Secret Service Agent and I would love to share some secrets with him!  The story will have you holding your breath with the suspense and then Spencer will just take your breath away.  You're certainly going to want a Taste!
5 stars!!!
