synopsis

Calix Mabry had everything a vampire could ever want. A mate, eternal life, and enough money to sustain them for the rest of their lives. But when his beloved is taken from him, he vows to bring her back at any cost.

Enter Vivienne Peltier. Long legs. Deep red hair. She is everything his Sofia wasn’t. He is drawn to her like a moth to a flame.

Torn between his desire to bring Sofia back and his lust for Vivienne, Calix makes a decision that could potentially tear everything and everyone he knows apart.

True love always wins in the end. But at what cost?

Excerpt:

“Don’t you think it’s time to stop brooding and give this crusade up?”

The voice didn’t startle him. But he was surprised to hear it from the doorway across the room. “What do you want, Quinn?” His voice held no emotion. He wasn’t exactly happy to see her but he wasn’t angry either.

Her footsteps echoed in the large room as she moved closer to him. “I came to see how you are. Can’t a friend stop by to check on another friend without suspicion?”

Calix looked up and sat back in his chair. He was greeted with a plunging neckline that exposed everything from her neck to her navel. She had never been one for modesty. Not even four centuries ago when women weren’t meant to show themselves off.

He raised a brow. “Since when are you my friend, Quinn? I may have turned you but I sure as hell know you only come to me when it suits you.”

The gorgeous redhead laughed, her voice melodic and haunting. “Don’t even start with me. I’ve been there through all of this, Calix. You’re putting yourself through hell and for what? What’s one mortal woman amid the thousands you could choose from?”

Review: A Problematic Love by Rebecca Rohman

41s7udJ+CmLsynopsis

Eight years after her fiancee was murdered, attorney Megan Kole has fully reconciled two areas of her life: her intelligent son, who never knew his father, and the thriving law practice that is her late father’s legacy. The remainder of Megan’s world stalled in a paralyzing grief that she effectively compartmentalized until a transfer to Seattle brings a handsome, mysterious billionaire into her life.

Daemon Ros has been an outcast since the day he was born. His parents’ lavish but emotionally-vacant lifestyle prompted him to assert his financial independence at a young age. His ailing brother is the only connection he allows to penetrate the vault he has built around his heart, until a devoted mom and her precocious son introduce him to the true meaning of family bonds.

But a chance legal encounter where Megan acts as mediator in a Ros family business dispute leads to far more than either expected. When a shocking truth leads to a love affair between Megan and Daemon that is forbidden in every conceivable way, the barely-restrained chemistry that scorches between them threatens an injunction on everything and everyone they hold dear. As pasts cross, memories threaten, and lies surface in a trial far more deadly than anything inside a courtroom, an arbitration of the heart could prove the only way for them both to make it out alive.

reviewfour-cup-review

This story grabbed my attention from the very beginning. Megan Kole is a force to be reckoned with, a smart, capable, independent woman that doesn’t need any man (or anyone for that matter) to take are of her or her son. She proves this time and time again when their lives are threatened after Daemon Ros enters the picture. Daemon is also a force to be reckoned with and when these two collide there is nothing that can stop them from being together. Except for themselves. I enjoyed how Rohman weaved her story together and the unexpected twists she threw in. Although I did feel the one towards the end was unnecessary. Despite that, it was a good, solid read and I definitely recommend it.

Review: Treason by Viv Doyle

33151395

synopsis

Lina has two passions in life: playing The Treason Game online and dreaming about Tyler, the avatar of a fellow gamer. A gifted artist, she applies for an internship with a company whose boss, Aron Taylor, helped to make ‘Treason.’ But could Taylor and Tyler possibly be one and the same? At home, Lina is in constant conflict with her religious mother, who believes all video games to be the Work of the Devil. Her best friend, Kit, who works for another games company, is supportive at first. But then Kit finds a new partner, and her friendship with Lina takes second place. At work, the other game developers are helpful and kind, but although Lina finds Aron Taylor very attractive he seems unapproachable. She can’t bring herself to reveal her online identity, much as she longs to do so. Only when the studio team goes to Paris Games Week is everything resolved, but not at all in the way that Lina expected.

review

three cup review

The Treason Game started off slowly and then picked up the pace about a quarter way in. I felt that the author was much more excited about the video game aspects of the book then the actual story telling. I feel that people can relate to what Lina is going through, especially young/new adults that are trying to find their own way in life. I do believe that a sexual warning should be attached to this book as a sex scene turns quite rough and may be a trigger to some. It was a good effort for Doyle’s first book.

Okay, this is cool!

Normally when I’m contacted buy a publishing company it’s always thanks, but no thanks; this time was different. Hideaway Fall contacted me through the blog and I am now doing reviews for them! As a thank you,  they sent this sweet welcome package and I expect my first book to review in a few weeks! Cause you know, I have NOTHING to read.

And, also as promised, here is the link to my interview with the authors of The Collective. Please leave a comment in the review letting me know how I did!

(At the moment I am looking for men who write romance, so hit me up if you’d like to talk)

Review: Thirteen Reasons Why (Netflix)

16195286_859398437496079_2963832611971480462_n-768x438-3

It was a sign, I guess. I had stopped by Target to grab a printer cartridge and was failing miserably at keeping my eyes trained on the tile so I wouldn’t be tempted by anything that would catch my eye. I glanced upon the books (sigh) and a cover stood out more than the rest. 13 Reasons Why. I refused to stop, knowing that as I was already intrigued, it would just piss me off to read the synopsis, fall further in love and not be able to buy it.

It only took me a day and a half to watch the series.  I finished watching this at 5:13 this morning. Basically, I watched it all in one day. Yay, insomnia.

Anyway, WATCH THIS NOW.

13 Reasons follows the life of Hannah, a high school sophomore in need of a friend. With the help of her high school counselor, she is paired up with another new girl in town, Jessica. From there, two become three as they add in loner, Alex. From there Hannah’s life takes on the twists and turns of the seedier side of high school and how several events (13 to be exact) drove her to commit suicide. And how one boy, Clay, took it upon himself to get justice… however perhaps not the right word… and some how he does.

It is a powerful drama, no-holds barred, and perfectly executed. I told my oldest son to watch it and am trying to figure out how to talk to my youngest about such issues as he is nearing high school and I think it’s already creeping into middle school.

I now want to get the book to read and compare.

Review: Just An Illusion Side B

Just An Illusion – The B Side (Illusion Series – Book 2)

Cover Design: Regina Wamba / Mae I Design and Photography

Release Date: March 30, 2017

synopsis

Three life-altering months …   That’s how long it’s been since Amelia Greyson joined the Just an Illusion Tour with Bastards and Dangerous. She’s made new friends, embraced her past, and even found love.   Back on the road …   Following a tragic situation, Amelia is determined to hit the road, put her life in order, and finish the book she was hired to write. Mel’s not the only one affected by what happened; the men of BAD are all trying to move forward, not wanting the past to ruin the remainder of their farewell tour.   Brother vs Brother …   Tensions are high on the Weston brothers’ bus. As each brother settles into their role in Amelia’s life, secrets threaten to rip their relationship to shreds. Can Noah and Sawyer find a way to save the brotherly bond they share? Or will the woman of their dreams end up tearing them apart for good?

review

The woman did it again. She done left me in suspense AND crying my eyes out.

When we open the book, we find out that Mel has survived the attack on her and Noah and after holding my breath for a chapter, we find out that Noah survived as well. However, we are immediately stumped by who is giving Mel an ultimatum early in the story. We follow along with Bastards and Dangerous (BAD) as they restart their farewell tour through the memories of Mel as she is writing to finish her inside story on the band.

Mel is reluctant, to say the least, to write but her deadline is quickly approaching and despite what has happened and what it is she must make a decision about (and who will receive the answer) the clock is ticking.

We are immediately caught up in the spell D. Kelly weaves as Mel, documenting the band as faces more deranged fans, personal demons, happiness beyond measure and a tragedy so out of the blue, I had to immediately email her and ask what the hell! Of course, she pled the fifth and said all will be answered in EP, the third and final book of the Just an Illusion trilogy.

If you haven’t read Just an Illusion Side A, get out there and do it now so you can pick up this book, a pack of tissue and tell your loved ones to leave alone until you’re done.

So as Belle would say, till next time Slammers and don’t forget live today as there is no tomorrow xoxo

Just an Illusion – EP is coming June 21, 2017

If you want to read Mel’s interviews with band be sure you’re signed up for D. Kelly’s mailing list. Interviews will start releasing weekly in April:

I Know I’ve Been Quiet Lately

But for extremely good cause!

I have been doing a lot of reading, so reviews will be popping up. I just completed my first HUGE interview and I have another coming up for July. So I’ll probably be posting links too the first within the next couple of days.

I also have been doing a lot of writing for stories to come out this year. I will definitely get Peace and Harmony out this Fall/Winter and will have ROSE 2 out this Winter. I was really hoping to get Magnitude out (and finish that series) but nope. I am still stalled on that one. I’m hoping by getting a new editor, new life will be breathed into it and I will once again be jazzed to finish Ali and Caden’s story.

I don’t have very many newsletter subscribers and haven’t really had much to say, so if you think you have signed up for nothing, please give me a bit more patience. I just don’t have anything to say and don’t want to spam you with nonsense.

So until I have a release date for you, check out the Peace series page on Facebook. I try to participate in OnelineWedenesday, which for us has turned into OneparagraphWednesday, lol. Example:

17240250_399117980456612_7749411080996264653_o

So if you like sugar with a bit of spice and everything nice, you’ll love Peace and Harmony. And it’s nice to know I still got it (spice wise).
