A red-hot holiday

Pro football publicist Martha Blue has something to prove. To protect the image of the Las Vegas Slayers—and stay employed— she has to shed her party-girl

reputation. Fast! So no more mistakes. No further scandals. And absolutely no falling for the one man who can give her everything she wants…and nothing of what she needs.

Danger and desire never mixed well for undefeated prizefighter Joaquin Ryder. A friend of the Blue family, he’s a man who knows his boundaries…boundaries he has secretly crossed only once before. Now that he’s back in Sin City to train for the biggest fight of his career, he can’t afford to let a sexy distraction like Martha put him against the ropes. Revisiting their sizzling past is something he isn’t willing to risk—until a steamy Yuletide encounter, where for just one night, they’ll surrender completely….


Lisa Marie Perry encounters difficult fictional men and women on a daily basis. She writes contemporary romance fiction with plenty of sizzle, energy and depth. Flawed, problematic, damaged characters are welcome. Her tales feature exciting multicultural mash-ups, sexy guy-next-door heroes and powerful larger-than-life alphas who are brought to their knees by the love of complicated women.

According to Lisa Marie, an imagination’s a terrible thing to ignore. So is a good cappuccino. After years of college, customer service gigs and a career in caregiving, she at last gave in to buying an espresso machine and writing to her imagination’s desire. She lives in America’s heartland and she has every intention of making the Colorado mountains her new stomping grounds. She drives a truck, enjoys indie rock, collects Medieval literature, watches too many comedies, has a not-so-secret love for lace and adores rugged men with a little bit of nerd.

Of Legacies Series...

Of Gaea
Of Legacies #1
By- Victoria Escobar
Genre- YA Fantasy

Her choice will change the world.

She hated the wheelchair. Hated the way it made her feel less than what she was. Most of all she hated not being able to do all the things she used to. Ari had been a track and field star, an archery champion and an Eskrima pro. Now she was confined to a wheelchair slowly dying inside from its restraints.

Medical science wasn’t working. The tests, the drugs, the therapies were all useless and a waste of time. She was tired of wasting her time; she was tired of failure. It was time to look away from the obvious and try something unconventional.

Nothing was ever free and that included miracles. Abruptly, Ari finds herself tangled in a web of lies, questioning everything she’s ever known as truth. Never had she believed she’d be thrown headfirst into a world of good and evil, magic and Gods.

Trapped in the middle of a war she had never known existed both parties demanded her allegiance. Ari was a catalyst that could change all the rules of the Earth. But when the time comes to make a choice will she be strong enough to know right from wrong?


Her Winning Formula Review...

Her Winning Formula
Hot & Nerdy # 3
By: Shannyn Schroeder
Releasing November 24th, 2014


Spring break was supposed to be a last blast of fun for three friends before the reality of adulthood set in. But for the trio’s science whiz, it’s an education in instant attraction…
Chemistry major Felicity Stone can tell you everything about the way chemicals interact, but when it comes to social interaction, she needs schooling. Abandoned by her friends, Felicity is faced with spending spring break alone—unless she accepts a gorgeous stranger’s invitation to pose as his girlfriend at a family wedding. Not one to turn down a research opportunity, Felicity never expected it to produce such breathtaking results…
Teacher and baseball coach Lucas Tanner is fascinated by Felicity’s potent mix of spirit and scientist, not to mention her delicious curves. When Felicity asks him to return the favor by teaching her how to pick up guys, he can’t refuse—but he’s not at all happy with the idea of her using a formula for flirting on anyone but him. Can he convince her that together they have the perfect chemistry?


Hey, Felicity, it’s Lucas.”
She rolled her eyes. “I have caller ID.”
Sorry. I just wanted to apologize for the message earlier.”
He still sounded weird. “Is your mother making you call me again?”
He laughed and she relaxed. “No. I’m glad you could tell she put me up to that call. We went out to lunch and everyone was looking for you. You made quite the impression last night.”
She closed her eyes with a groan and thought of the many ways she might’ve embarrassed him as she sank back to the chair. Her comment to Becky led the list. Becky had probably already shared her crude remark with everyone just to prove how “unfixable” she was.
What was that for? Everyone loved you.”
Her eyes popped open. “What?”
Everyone who spoke to you loved you. They said things like you’re a charming girl.”
She laughed. And laughed. And then laughed some more until she doubled over. Lucas’s voice murmured in her lap where she’d dropped her phone, bringing her back to reality. She scooped up the phone and placed it against her ear. “I’m here,” she said breathlessly. Grin in place, she took a steadying breath.
Are you okay?” he asked.
Another slow inhale before responding. “I haven’t laughed that hard in forever. Are you serious? Your family loved me?”
According to my mom, yeah. That’s why she wants you to come to dinner tomorrow.”
I guess I’m a pretty good actress then.” She paused because she knew she never would’ve pulled it off if it hadn’t been for him. “And you’re a miracle worker. No one has ever been able to give me the magic formula for social interaction. Thank you.”
No, thank you. I don’t know if I would’ve survived the wedding without you.”
He got quiet suddenly, and her stomach tightened. She stood and braced her elbows on the rail.
Why did you leave this morning?”
She considered hanging up. She could probably get away with it and just ignore him if he called back. But in her mind, she saw his smiling face, and she didn’t want to do that to him.
Didn’t you have fun? I thought it was good for you too.”
Crap. He thought the sex wasn’t good? She swallowed a chuckle. “Just the opposite. It was amazing.”
Then why sneak out?”
I wasn’t really sneaking.” Liar. “You looked tired, and I didn’t want to wake you. Plus, my commitment to you as your date was officially over.”
He didn’t sound like he believed her. It was the same sound Charlie and Layla made when they wanted to call her a liar but were trying to be nice.
I guess I need to hold up my end of the bargain then.”
You asked me to help you pick up guys. I’ll meet you at your hotel at seven. We’ll have dinner and our first lesson.”

But—” Her phone bleeped at her to signify he’d hung up. She plopped back into her chair. What was that about? He had to know that she didn’t really expect him to teach her how to pick up guys, especially after last night. Even she wasn’t so dense to think that was a good idea.




Spring break was supposed to be fun but when Felicity is the only one to make it to their spring break plans she is nervous about being alone. She meets Lucas on the plane and they talk. Lucas has a hard time flying but talking to Felicity seems to calm him. Lucas has the perfect solution to both their problems. He asks Felicity to come to a family wedding and pose as his girlfriend. Felicity is not one to turn down a research opportunity. Felicity was shocked at the results. Lucas is a teacher and Felicity is a scientist. They seem totally incompatible. But when she asks him to teach her to pick up guys, he can’t refuse. Can Lucas show her that they have the chemistry they both need?

I really enjoyed this story. It was sweet and romantic and I really liked it. I would recommend this to my friends. I give it 4 out of 5 stars!

Flirting With Love Review...

Flirting With Love
The Bradens # 10
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing December 15th, 2014


FLIRTING WITH LOVE is the newest addition to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. This contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and very relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women’s fiction.


Elisabeth Nash has spent years dreaming of returning to the small town of Trusty, Colorado, where she spent summers with her favorite aunt. When she inherits her aunt’s farmette, she closes her Los Angeles pet bakery and pampering business, sure that life in Trusty will be as peaceful and as welcoming as she remembers. But being an outsider in the close-knit town proves to be very different from the happy summers she remembers from her childhood—and falling for Trusty’s hot, wealthy, and sinfully irresistible veterinarian, Ross Braden, sends the rumor mill into a frenzy.

Ross Braden learned long ago that gossip spreads faster than weeds in his small hometown, and Ross loves nothing more than his privacy. For that reason, he doesn’t date women who live in Trusty. But that was before blond, beautiful, and refreshingly honest Elisabeth Nash flew into his vet clinic seeking help for her panicked piglet and turned his comfortable life—and his heart—inside out.

Despite rumors about Elisabeth’s motives toward her aunt’s property, passion brews between Elisabeth and Ross. Every steamy kiss and every sensual touch brings the pair closer together, and when Ross helps Elisabeth try to fit into the town he adores, it makes their bond even stronger. But even Elisabeth’s efforts toward reaching the community, and the love she and Ross so desperately believe in, might not be enough for the protective small town to offer them a future.



Like many of Melissa’s other books, this one is full of love, frustration, a little sadness, and a completely swoon worth hero.

Ross is the last of the Braden men, making him the most wanted man in his small town in Colorado. He loves his job as a vet and loves his dogs more than life. But, there is something missing…a love a woman.

What will he do to find it? And what will he do to keep it? Read and find out! If you can get past the parts that are a bit slow (imo), I’m sure you like it!

3.5 stars

Exposing The Flesh Cover Reveal...

Exposing the Flesh
Love & Ink # 3
By- J.A. Howell
Genre- Erotica
Published By- SideStreet Cookie Publishing
Expected Publication Date- December 26th, 2014

*Warning: Intended for 18+ only. Contains graphic language and sex, as well as depictions of violence and sexual assault that may be disturbing to some readers.*

Niall Donovan is a talented photographer. When it comes to women, he can have his pick and has. But beneath the flirtatious, joking smiles he's hiding long buried pain and traumatic memories. Memories that are breaking the surface once more. Memories that he’ll do anything to shut up. When suicide doesn’t work for him, he indulges in pills, drugs, and physical pain. They seem to help some, but they barely take the edge off.
London Black has been put through the wringer. Between a car accident that nearly killed her, months of physical therapy, and finding out the boyfriend she moved to Midtown for has been cheating all along, she’s done being the sweet wholesome girl everyone thinks she is. A one night stand with the sexy photographer she meets at a club is just the thing she needs to boost her ego. It does more than that when the explicit photos of them are the main exhibit at the local art gallery. Embarrassed, angry, and now without a prospective job, she confronts him on opening night. But when he offers her a generous deal with room and board in return for more photos, she accepts. Taking naked photos with him for a large sum of cash doesn’t seem like that horrible of an option, and besides they both intend to keep things completely professional.
When the shutter starts snapping, however, it’s hard for either to deny what's developing between them. Neither are in a good place and prefer those desires stay hidden in the dark, but the camera doesn’t lie. Baring it all may expose more than their bodies. But exposing their hearts may be more than Niall or London bargained for.

Rachael, now at University, lives with a giant blank page in her memory from when she was fifteen years old.

Forced into the care of Gargoyle the Hunter, Rachael attempts to piece together her shattered memory. As emotions grow between them, a familiar green-eyed demon returns to her side, claiming that Rachael is his one true love. With the world falling apart around them, can Rachael remember who she loves and which side is right before it’s too late?


Happily (N)EVER After...

Happily (N)Ever After- An Anthology
Publication Date- November 25th, 2014

Sometimes you are lucky enough to dodge a bullet...but sometimes it strikes straight to the heart without an exit wound. It rattles around, leaks out our trust, and brings us to our knees making us wonder; why the %&$@ did I date you!?

From the darkness of emotional and/or physical pains we crawled out and eventually found a way to dust ourselves off and carry on with life.

So let these stories serve as a guide, that all that glitters is not always gold. That the felling of the hairs rising on the back of your neck is a warning, a primal scream to let us know that some things are not as they seem. Trust your gut. Yes, some people are worth fighting for but others have somehow tricked us into seeing a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

With hindsight fully engaged, we can now see the clarity of our past and appreciate the lessons we learned in our very own happily never after.
