2014 Farewell and 2015 Welcome

The ball is dropping and the New Year is just a blink away.  That means it's time for a look back on 2014, right?  Here's my little tribute to the year.

I've probably said it about a dozen, or maybe a hundred, times already, but if you were hiding under a rock and didn't see it all over my Facebook page, my top 3 reads of 2014 were:


#Nerd by Cambria Hebert
#Nerd was a fun read for me.  I never went to college, and I think that is why I love reading college based stories.  I've been a fan of Cambria Hebert's for a while now, but #Nerd is my absolute favorite.  Now this isn't a term that I have ever used before, but I am totally "fangirling" over this story.  I bought the t-shirt and the hoodie to go with it.  I'm a 20-something in a 40+ year old's body.  Deal with it.  ;)  Rimmel is the school nerd.  Romeo is a total player...both on and off the football field.  He is the star and every girl wants him, except Rimmel.  And then she is forced to tutor him and they both learn who the other really is and maybe a little something about themselves too.

Cambria didn't originally plan on making this a series, but in a few weeks, #Hater, the follow-up to #Nerd will be available and I can not wait!
(Note:  the links will take you to the purchase option on Amazon.)

Beauty in the Ashes by Micalea Smeltzer
Beauty in the Ashes is a story like no other.  It will tug at you.  At times you'll find yourself getting angry and tense.  You will wonder what Micalea is doing to these characters.  How can she write this?  I know that it was not easy for her to write, but I beg you to stick with it and see where she takes you.  Your heart will break but in the end, I think it will soar.  You will see that there really can be beauty in the ashes.  Just when you think all is lost, hope will emerge.

Wynn in Doubt by Emily Hemmer

What can I say about Wynn in Doubt  that I haven't said already?  I think my review was the longest I had ever written.  What I felt reading this story can not even be described.  Even writing this now, I find that I have tears in my eyes.  This story touched me in ways you can not even begin to imagine and it is my hope that it touches others the same way.  This is a story about life and taking chances.  It is about going back while moving forward.  In a way, it's about second chances - giving them and taking them.  It's about living!  I loved this book so much and not only is it my favorite of 2014, but it's one of my all time favorites.  I hope you will read it and love it as I did.

I really read so many great books this year that there are just too many to rank after these top 3.  I'll try to aim for a top 5 for 2015, but I'm not promising anything.  These three just really stood out for me.

2014 introduced me to many new authors.  Just to name a few:
Audrey Carlan
J.M. Witt
Regina Bartley
Harper James
C.M. Doporto
D. Kelly (although technically she first contacted me in Dec. 2013, but I didn't read her until 2014)
Ella Jade
L.A. Cotton
T.K. Leigh

I'm sure there were many more, and I am very much looking forward to meeting many new authors in 2015.  I will never stop reading.

I also attended my first (and so far only) signing event (as a fan) when I went to Indie Girl in South Carolina back in February, where I was able to meet a few of my favorites in person...Lacey Weatherford, Belinda Boring, Cambria Hebert, Micalea Smeltzer.  It was a fun weekend and I made some wonderful new friends.  Hopefully I'll be able to attend another event in 2015, but right now, there is nothing booked.

So, I hope you all had a wonderful 2014 and I'm looking forward to sharing so many new books with you in 2015.  I hope you'll stick around.

Happy New Year!!

BLOG TOUR: Mind (Trinity Trilogy Book 2) by Audrey Carlan

Title: Mind, Trinity Trilogy, Book 2
Author: Audrey Carlan
Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance
Tour Host: DRC Promotions


I’m a magnet for evil and controlling men. Chase, my big business tycoon and love of my life, thinks he can protect me…he can’t.
No one can.
It became clear far too late how serious my stalker was, that his threats weren’t idle. He proved more than once that he would do what it takes, that there were no stakes too high to his sick and twisted games and delusions of worship.
We should have been better prepared. The roses, images, lingerie soaked in his seed, even his calling card written in blood didn’t penetrate. I had faith that my love could make it go away, that eventually he’d be caught.
I was wrong.
In the second highly anticipated erotic suspense novel in the Trinity Trilogy, MIND digs deep into the heart and psyche of Gillian and her stalker through dueling POVs.
While Chase and Gillian plan their wedding, follow them and the entire gang as the stalker acts out his revenge and plots his attack on Gillian, Chase, and their friends.
This book can be considered dark, erotic, and thrilling. As in Body (Trinity Trilogy Book 1) the issue of domestic violence plays heavily in the storyline, and Gillian experiences many disturbing flashbacks of the past, alongside tragedy the stalker brings to the present. There is also a lot of love, devotion, and friendship.
Warning: This book is designed for audiences 18+ due to language, graphic sexual content, and themes that some may find disturbing. MIND is book 2 of a three-part trilogy. Body (Trinity Trilogy - Book 1) must be read prior to reading MIND.


“That’s it baby, you take my cock,” he presses deep. “Take. It. All. The. Way.” He grunts until he’s seated to the very hilt, his heavy balls slapping against the crack of my ass. “You feel me, Gillian. You feel me inside you. I’m always going to be there. Taking you, taking what’s mine, giving you what’s yours.” He breathes heavily as he stirs his cock inside me. “You want that? All of me. Every” thrust “fucking,” thrust, “inch” thrust, “Of me,” thrust,” is yours,” he lets out in a feverish rush.
He tugs at my hips spearing me on his thick cook, the lips of my sex protesting with each massive thrust. It’s divine. Him taking me this way. Proving that nothing will keep him from me.
“What do you feel?” He brings a wicked thumb into the mix, swirling the digit around my clit in dizzying circles that sends lightning to my sex.
“I feel…” I try to catch my breath as my orgasm builds, swirls like a boiling pot, my spine tightening, limbs protesting as the first waves of release shimmer through me. “I feel us.” He smiles, comes down onto me and powers into me.
“What else?” He grates. His skin is shining with sweat at the effort to hold back, not just pound and pour into me. No, he wants it to be good for me and it always is.
“Baby, it’s everything,” I whisper into his ear as I cling to him in a full body clench before tipping my head back and roaring through my release. I grip him to me so tightly I can feel the exact moment his spine stiffens, one vertebra at a time, in extreme pleasure, before pouring his release into me. The orgasm goes on and on as we both ride the wave for long minutes.
When I come back from Nirvana, I’m still clinging to him, only now I’m sprawled naked on his chest, both of us panting like we just ran a full marathon. Chase extends his arm and shuffles through his pants. He pulls out his phone holds it out and takes a picture.
“Now look at the camera for me this time. I want to keep this moment with me forever,” he says. I can only oblige him. Certain that my breasts are plastered against his chest I peek up through my hair and my hiding place on his chest. One of my hands is lying against his rapidly beating heart. We both look at the camera, and I give my secret smile, the one I only give to him. He takes the picture and turns it around so I can see. It’s breathtakingly beautiful. I see the Drum Bridge clearly in the distance but most importantly, I see Chase, his eyes sated and untarnished by his past or our current situation. My own gaze is soft, resplendent. Mostly, it’s just another candid moment of us in love.
“Send it to me…that one is special,” I use the same words he used about the other image. He nods once and then tosses the phone back down near his pants. We lay together for a long time.
“Do you think it will always be this good between us?” I finally ask. His arms tighten along my bare back and waist.
I lean up and rest my chin on his chest like I usually do after we make love.
“I don’t know why it wouldn’t. I’m positive there is no other woman for me. No one else would put up with me the way you do.” He waggles his eyebrows, but I know there is some truth in his statement.
Kissing him softly, I pull back. “You’re right. No woman in their right mind would put up with you,” he cringes, but I continue. “Special dates and private garden showings, rooftop brunches, endless love making where the woman’s pleasure is paramount…you’re right. You’re ridiculous!” I giggle, and he nuzzles my nose.
“You’re cute.”
“Didn’t we already have this conversation? Cute is for puppies and newborns not naked women in their twenties who allow you to ravish them in public gardens.”
Chase laughs, and I enjoy feeling his cock wiggle within me. He likes to stay connected to me for as long as possible, but I know our private time is running out.
“Don’t we need to go?”
He kisses me then sits up. I shimmy off him and stand. The mixture of our combined releases coats my thighs and starts running down my leg. Chase watches closely, a predatory gleam in his eyes and a crooked, sexy smile on his face. I roll my eyes and grab the soft napkin that came with our picnic, wiping the mess up before putting on my panties, bra, and dress.
Chase dresses and I start to put everything away. “Leave it. I’ve paid someone to take care of it for us.” Of course he did. I shake my head and he puts my cardigan over my shoulders, the chill of the late afternoon in San Francisco starting to encroach.
“Next up...dessert,” Chase says as he leads me out the gate of the garden. I close my eyes and try to imprint today’s experience so that I can go back to it often. Whenever I have a rough day, I’m going to go back to those rainbow steps that tell a story so beautiful one must experience it with their own eyes, and the magical garden where Chase made wild and crazy love to me under the cool shade of a willow tree.
“I thought that’s what we just had,” I say, the innuendo clear in my tone.
“You saucy little vixen, come on. I know a place that serves up the best caramel cupcakes baked fresh every day.”
“You had me at ‘saucy little vixen’,” I grin.


I stumbled across Audrey Carlan through a mutual love for author Emily Hemmer.  Prior to reading Mind, I had only read Body, which is the first in the series, but I was instantly hooked!  Ms. Carlan created characters with depth, but that I felt a connection with.  I mean really, who wouldn't feel like they were one with a billionaire?  Don't we all live that way?  No, I guess not.  But when I read, I'm looking for an escape and to bury myself in the story and I was able to do that with this series.  Sure, I would love to find a handsome billionaire to sweep me off my feet (don't tell my husband), who wouldn't?  But it isn't all wine and roses for Gillian and Chase.  They both have a past and they find themselves in the battle for their future.  Suspense, romance, steamy sex...that's what you'll get with this series.  And with Mind, you're going to get one hell of a cliffhanger too.  Don't say I didn't warn you.

BLOG TOUR: Releasing Kate by D. Kelly

Kate has been through more than her share of tragedies in her life. After suffering the loss of her mother, daughter, and the love of her life, she’s finally found the strength to open herself up to love again. For once, everything is finally as it should be. Kate should’ve known that things were too good to be true; her life doesn’t work that smoothly. 
It’s been four years since Michael left Kate, but he’s back now, and determined to win Kate’s heart once again. After discovering that Daniel and Michael are best friends, the situation spirals out of control quickly. Instead of dealing with her broken heart, Kate ignores it. 
When Kate’s actions drive her to do the unthinkable, she knows she’s crossed the line. Unfortunately, she doesn’t realize it until it’s too little, too late. Her actions have consequences and now she’s trying to fix the unfixable. Can the men in Kate’s life grant her the forgiveness she can’t even find within herself?


“Now, here’s the most honest thing I could ever tell you; are you ready to hear it?” She nods and I tilt her chin up to face me. “No, I need to hear you say it because I need to know you hear the words that are going to come out of my mouth next.”
“Yes, I’m ready,” she says with a shaky voice.
“Kate, I’m sexually open to new experiences and new ideas; that’s obviously a given with my history. Never in my life has a woman turned me on more than you do. Not ever. Never has someone made my heart skip a beat. Never before has a girl wrapped me around her finger so tightly without me trying to get away. Instead, I’m hanging on for dear life. Not in my entire life has a girl made me feel passion from the top of my head to the tips of my toes, not ever. I’ve never been with a girl that made me feel the electricity between us with a simple touch. I’ve never made love, fucked, or had sexual relations with anyone where my body felt connected with theirs from the inside out…until you.”
A surprised gasp escapes her lips and I lean closer, placing feather light kisses on her earlobe as she shivers in pleasure.
“I’ve never met a girl who trembles for me the way you do, who comes for me the way you do, or who calls my name out when they come the way you do. More importantly, Kate, I’ve never wanted to lay claim to anyone the way I need to lay claim to you. I need you to be mine, baby, as much as I need the air to breathe, water to drink, and food to nourish my soul. None of those things will help me if you’re not in my life making me thrive.”
Tentatively, I begin kissing my way across her jaw and hover just a whisper away from her lips and then pause. “All of that stuff was erotic and hot, but it was also before you. Anything before I was with you pales in comparison; they were just shadows but you are my light. I know we’ve got a long way to go, but trust me, baby, I’m in this for the long haul. We have the once in a lifetime love people look for their entire lives right at our fingertips. It’s within our grasp, and when we finally reach out and take it, our lives are going to be better than they’ve ever been. I can’t wait for the day I get my ring back on your finger, but I hope that when you finally do put it back on you’re ready to marry me, Kate, because I don’t ever want to go through this again.”  
Her lips are parted, her breathing escalates, and I’m done talking. Before my lips are fully on hers, she opens her mouth to me and I take what’s mine, relentlessly. At first it’s a dueling of tongues, biting of lips, and grasping on to each other with all we have. Then I slow it down, making love to her senses by caressing her gently as my tongue slowly and tentatively meets hers. As much as I want her to feel the passion we share, I want her to know the love even more.
Taking control, she straddles my lap, places a hand on each of my cheeks, and pulls me in for a passionate kiss. My hands immediately move to her hips as she moves up and down against my painfully hard cock. A pained sounding moan escapes her but I’m not offended. I know that sound; it’s the sound of wanting something you can’t have and it’s exactly how I feel right now.

Roc n' Read Says:
D. Kelly practically had to be me to read this series (ok, truth is, she asked me to read Breaking Kate and I pushed her off because I was too busy, so she had to ask again) and I'm so glad she did.  

But did she break my heart?  

After reading Breaking Kate, I knew with 100% certainty who I thought Kate belonged with and I wasn't changing my mind.  (Yeah, I've said that before, but this time I was standing by my man.  ;)  )  I was nervous to read Releasing Kate because I really didn't know which path she was going to choose.  But D. has a knack for storytelling and she kept me guessing right until the very end.  So who did Kate choose?  Well I'm certainly not going to tell.  You'll just have to read it to find out.

Roc n' Read says:
When J.M. first offered me the chance to read this series, I figured "why not".  She sent me the first 2 books.  I instantly fell in love with these characters and this story.  I was hooked.  So as soon as I finished book 1.5, I bought book 2.  Then book 2.5 came out and I devoured that one too.  And I could not sign up fast enough for the ARC of Book 3.  I needed to know what would happen for Cassidy and James.  
J.M. Witt has written some amazing characters.  Not just Cassidy and James, but Cal and Jane too.  And of course, Paul, Smith, Delaney...even Melissa.  You will want to wrap yourself up in this story, just like I did.  I am so glad I had the chance to read this series and to fall in love with them all.  We have romance, suspense, intrigue, passion, and even some naughtiness that is very, very nice.  This series is too hot for stars, so it's going 5 Alarms!
Oh...and did you think it was over after this one?  Not a chance.  These characters have too many stories to tell, too much heat to be contained in just these 5 books.  So keep an eye out to see who else feels the need to tell their story.  I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed.  I know I won't be.

Meet J.M.

JM Witt 
  I’m a stay-at-home mom with four young children and one extremely supportive husband. We’ve been married for ten years and reside in Metro Detroit, Michigan. I've dreamed of writing romance novels since I was little. After having baby #4, who may or may not have been fathered by Christian Grey, I decided it was time to pursue my dreams. When I'm not volunteering at the schools of my children, running to various appointments, enjoying time with my friends and my book club, dating my husband, or avoiding cleaning my house, I'm writing! I love music and believe that books and music can't exist without the other. My goal is for you to read more than a good book, but for you to have an experience!

COVER REVEAL: #Hater by Cambria Hebert


Title: #Hater
Series: The Hashtag Series #2
Author: Cambria Hebert
Release Date: January 12, 2015
Genre: New Adult College Romance
Format: Ebook and Print

It started with unspoken animosity. The bitter bite of jealousy. And now its full blown hate.

It was during my first football game that I first felt the first chill of hate. I looked it right in the eyes and felt its sticky tentacles reach out for me. I’d never experienced something so cold and empty before.

The effect of that look lingered, like an unspoken promise, long after it was gone.

Becoming a couple – becoming the other half of a campus celebrity wasn’t easy. I let down walls guarding my heart and he looked past my glasses and accident prone tendencies. Romeo and I are an unlikely match, a #nerd and a jock. But we made it.

And we’re happy.

Zach doesn’t want us to be happy. He wants Romeo to pay for getting him kicked out of Omega and for the night he spent in jail. He’s going to use anything and everything he can to get his revenge. Including me.

As the weather on campus grows cold and the days become dark, revenge becomes the center of someone’s life and the happiness Romeo and I worked so hard for is threatened.

I can’t help but worry that our love is going to be overshadowed by hate.


Cambria Hebert is a bestselling novelist of more than twenty books. She went to college for a bachelor’s degree, couldn’t pick a
major, and ended up with a degree in cosmetology. So rest assured her characters will always have good hair.

Besides writing, Cambria loves a caramel latte, staying up late, sleeping in, and watching movies. She considers math human torture and has an irrational fear of chickens (yes, chickens). You can often find her running on the treadmill (she’d rather be eating a donut), painting her toenails (because she bites her fingernails), or walking her chorkie (the real boss of the house).

Cambria has written within the young adult and new adult genres, penning many paranormal and contemporary titles. Her favorite genre to read and write is romantic suspense. A few of her most recognized titles are: Text, Torch, Tryst, Masquerade, and Recalled.

Things ended badly between the two during their college years and she’s not sure she can put those demons to rest.

Professional baseball player Nicolas Cordova is having the time of his life. His team has just won the coveted World Series title. With the victory comes more fame, women and exposure than he ever could have imagined. Things are about to change for the sexy, charismatic athlete. He never expects his high school sweetheart to walk back into his life much less the locker room. 

These days Sage is smarter, more mature and doesn’t plan on being played a second time. Her appearance stirs old memories for Nic. She’s the one he let get away in the name of his career. He vows he can be the man she needs this time around. Will that be enough to mend her broken heart? 

Sliding Into Second is set to release on February 16th, 2015. But if you absolutely can't wait until then check out Book One in the series. Stealing His Heart is available now.

WARNING... Pax will steal your heart

Will the bad-boy pitcher strike out when it comes to love? 

Shy music teacher Sophia Ballis has sworn off men. After a bad experience with a college jock she decided it was better to be alone than to get burned again. She focused on her education and now her new job at a local private school. 

Professional baseball pitcher Paxton Hughes is a player both on and off the field. He's signed to the Kingston Crushers to bring home the coveted championship title. Nothing can get in his way. Serious relationships don't mix with a life on the road and he never loses focus on the game. One-night stands are his specialty for a reason. 

While out jogging one spring morning, the two collide, setting their course in motion. Pax is immediately drawn to the unassuming beauty. Sophia is aware of his reputation and decides one night of meaningless sex with the attractive Texas charmer is just what she needs to get over her self-imposed dry spell. Pax has more than a one-night stand on his mind, but will his bad-boy persona and demanding schedule ruin any chances of a happily ever after?
