Review:
I was pretty excited to receive the ARC of this book (which the blog was given for an honest review). This is the first book in a series by a new Indie Author. I think what shocked me the most was how incredibly steamy the book was. Scene after scorching scene, the bar gets raised. At first, I thought of Fifty Shades of Grey for a small portion, but Christian Greys got nothing on James Benedict III. He is a take control, no holds barred type of guy, but he also has a tender, loving side. Seriously, how could you not fall in love with him?
 
There is one particular part of the book that is without a doubt my favorite part. James pulls up in front of Cassidy's, looking completely yummy and on a motorcycle, to bring her for a ride. They go for cider and donuts and end up having a picnic. After they get back to Cassidy's townhouse, their passion just explodes. I don't want to give too much away from the book, but Cassidy and James are white hot together!
 
There are some twists and turns and you are left without answers for parts, but I knew that would be the case going in (as it is part of a series). In the last quarter of the book, you are given information that starts to fill in some of the empty pieces of the puzzle, but you are still left wondering what's to come. In my opinion, this is a great first book by J.M. Witt and I gave it a 4 star review.

Thats a Promise by Victoria Klahr

 That's a Promise by Victoria Klahr 


Synopsis:

This book is book one in a three part series, so not all matters are resolved at the end of the novel. It is also meant for ages 18+ due to yummy adult content Happily ever after doesn't exist. Not just in the romantic sense, but in the sense that there will never be a point in life that will contain no more obstacles.
Josie Sommers is a nerdy twenty four year old, elementary school teacher who has always considered herself a strong person. But with the loss of a loved one and the return of someone she vowed to never see again, her strength starts to break.
When he betrayed her in the ultimate way, she never thought she would let him back into her life, let alone open herself up to falling back in love with him.
Plagued with resentment and the burden of her own dishonesty, Josie has to decide if forgiving and coming clean is worth the risk of losing him again. With so many hurdles, we know that Josie’s story is no fairytale.
That’s a promise


Review: 

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. Let me start by saying, this is one of the hardest reviews I've ever had to write. Not because I didn't like the book (in fact, I give it 4 out of 5 stars), but because this book has so many secrets. Just when you think you know what is happening, a new piece of information is thrown at you.

You start with Josie, who has a lot of personal demons and has issues with being touched. She's even gone as far as to punch (in the face) anyone who doesn't give her personal space. Then we meet Blake, who against all odds, breaks down Josie's walls. That is until he betrays her in the worst way possible. If that isn't enough, we find out that Josie is holding onto a secret of her own that can ruin everything.

This book is a roller coaster ride of emotions. All you can do is, sit down, strap yourself in and hold on tight because it's going to be a bumpy ride! Just when you think nothing else in the book will shock you, the last page leaves you speechless. I had to read it twice!
This is definitely a great first book by this new author. It is part of a series, so don't expect everything to wrapped up nicely at the end of this book. Definitely can't wait to see what the next book has in store!

Review:


I was given a copy of this book for an Honest Review!

Ok… I was kinda worried getting into this book because it was wrote by a man (nothing against men authors)! I figured it was going to an OK book but it turned out to be WAY more than that.  If you are looking for that sweet romance; then don’t one-click this.  If you want that HOT, STEAMY book that leaves your panties wet with a little twist then look no further!! The sex scenes are dirty and EXTREMELY HOT with much detail that will have you wanting more and more!

You have Stephanie, the leading lady which is happily married with a good career. She wants more from her husband in the bedroom then the typical just quick sex. She meets Derrick, a hot bad boy that is willing to give her exactly what she wants in the bedroom, but she finds out that things are not always what they seem to be!!!.

 
There are parts of this book that are so steamy, I can only describe them as raw, no holds barred looks into what really happens behind closed doors. Yes, there was one part where I was thinking 'Wait... she wants him to do WHAT?!?', but you have to remember that Stephanie is looking to add spice to her life and she is sick of the mundane.

The writing is excellent; it is very male mind-set, which is nice to see how a man thinks of things. There's a certain areas in the book that happens that a woman wouldn't normally go into or write about.

With all that being said, I really enjoyed the book It is fast paced and keeps you wanting more.  Some of the scene in book might have you reaching for you BOB but most and fore most you will definitely not be disappointed at all!! I can’t wait to read what is next to come from this author!! 

We give this book 4 stars!!!

The Ever Trilogy by Jasinda Wilder Blog Tour


 Forever & Always  and After Forever
(The Ever Trilogy)

Expected Release: Dec. 20th, 2013
Hosted by: The Book Avenue
Join the Release Party Here




Ever,

These letters are often all that get me through week to week. Even if it’s just random stuff, nothing important, they’re important to me. Gramps is great, and I love working on the ranch. But…I’m lonely. I feel disconnected, like I’m no one, like I don’t belong anywhere. Like I’m just here until something else happens. I don’t even know what I want with my future. But your letters, they make me feel connected to something, to someone. I had a crush on you, when we first met. I thought you were beautiful. So beautiful. It was hard to think of anything else. Then camp ended and we never got together, and now all I have of you is these letters. S**t. I just told you I have a crush on you. HAD. Had a crush. Not sure what is anymore. A letter-crush? A literary love? That’s stupid. Sorry. I just have this rule with myself that I never throw away what I write and I always send it, so hopefully this doesn’t weird you out too much. I had a dream about you too. Same kind of thing. Us, in the darkness, together. Just us. And it was like you said, a memory turned into a dream, but a memory of something that’s never happened, but in the dream it felt so real, and it was more, I don’t even know, more RIGHT than anything I’ve ever felt, in life or in dreams. I wonder what it means that we both had the same dream about each other. Maybe nothing, maybe everything. You tell me.

Cade
~ ~ ~ ~

Cade,

We’re pen pals. Maybe that’s all we’ll ever be. I don’t know. If we met IRL (in real life, in case you’re not familiar with the term) what would happen? And just FYI, the term you used, a literary love? It was beautiful. So beautiful. That term means something, between us now. We are literary loves. Lovers? I do love you, in some strange way. Knowing about you, in these letters, knowing your hurt and your joys, it means something so important to me, that I just can’t describe. I need your art, and your letters, and your literary love. If we never have anything else between us, I need this. I do. Maybe this letter will only complicate things, but like you I have a rule that I never erase or throw away what I’ve written and I always send it, no matter what I write in the letter. 

Your literary love,

Ever


CHAPTER ONE 

SOMEWHERE OUT THERE

~ CADEN ~

It’s always the hands that mess me up. I can never get the fingers right, somehow. It’s something about the proportions between the knuckles, and the way the fingers are supposed to curve when at rest. I had an entire sketchbook full of failed attempts. 

Even at that moment, in the passenger seat of Dad’s F-350, I was sketching out another attempt. My tenth so far, and we weren’t even to Grayling yet. This one was the best yet, but the middle knuckles of the last two fingers looked awkward, like they’d been broken. 

Which gave me idea. I glanced over at Dad, who was driving with his left hand, the right resting on his thigh, fingers tapping to Montgomery Gentry on the radio. 

“Dad?” A sideways glance and a raised eyebrow were the only acknowledgement I got. “You ever broke your fingers?”

“Yeah, broke most of my left hand, matter of fact.” Dad took the wheel with his right and showed me his left hand. The knuckles were bulbous, the fingers crooked. “Didn’t get ’em set right, so they’ve always been kinda fucked up.”

“How’d you break ’em?”

The fingers in question scratched at a shaved scalp, the stubble of a receding hairline whisking under his nails. “Me and your Uncle Gerry were out in the back forty, riding the fence line, checking for breaks. My horse got spooked by a snake. He threw me, ‘cept my hand was tangled in the reins. Dislocated most of my fingers. Then, when I hit the ground, his hoof landed on the same hand, broke the middle two pretty good. Your Gramps is a hardass, and I knew he’d wallop me good if I came back without the job done. So I set the broke fingers best I could. There was a busted fence post, see, way out at the far corner, and Dad’s prize Thoroughbred kept getting out. Gerry and I fixed the break and went home. I never told Dad about my fingers, just had my mom wrap ’em for me. Never really healed right, and even now when the weather’s shitty my hand aches.” 

I’d heard the stories of my father’s childhood growing up on the Wyoming horse ranch that had been in the Monroe family for several generations. Every summer of my entire life had been spent on that ranch, riding and roping and tagging and birthing and breaking. Gramps didn’t accept excuses and didn’t tolerate weakness or mistakes, and I could only begin to imagine what it had been like growing up with Connor Monroe as a father. 

Gramps was a tall, silver-haired, iron-hard man. He’d served in both Korea and Vietnam before returning to work the ranch. Even as his grandson, I was expected to pull my weight or go home. That meant up before dawn, to bed past sunset, the entire day spent out in the field or in the stables, rarely even sitting for lunch. At fourteen, I was tanned, muscled, and, I knew, hardened to the point of looking older than I really was. 

Dad had been the first Monroe son to pursue a career away from the ranch, which had caused a decades-long rift between him and Gramps, leaving Uncle Gerry to take over running the ranch as Gramps got older. Dad left Wyoming after high school, moving to Detroit on his own to become an engineer. He’d started on the floor of a Ford plant, assembling truck frames and attending night school until he’d completed his degree, and eventually he’d been promoted to the engineering department, where he’d worked for the last twenty years. Despite his decades as an engineer, Dad had never really lost the wild-edged intensity of his upbringing.

“Why the questions about my fingers?” he asked. 

I shrugged, tilted the drawing into his line of sight. “I can’t get these damn fingers to look right. The last two look messed up, and I can’t fix it. So I thought I’d make ’em look broken, on purpose.”

Dad glanced at the drawing and then nodded. “Good plan. The relationship between your angles and curves is off, is your problem. I’m more of a draftsman than an artist, but that’s my two cents.”

I made a surreptitious study of Dad’s broken fingers again, adjusted the knuckles on the pencil-rendered hand, making them look misshapen and lumpy, then worked on the tips of the last two fingers, curving them slightly to the left, zigzagging the fourth finger to resemble Dad’s. When I was done, I held up the drawing to show him.

Dad cut his eyes to the drawing and back to road several times, examining critically. “Good. Best one yet. The index finger still looks a little goofy, but otherwise good.” He punched a button on the truck’s radio, bypassing the commercial that was airing in favor of a classic rock station. He turned it up when Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” came on. “I think this summer art camp will be good for you. Interlochen is one of the best art schools in the country.”

I shrugged, bobbing my head to the beat, mumbling along with the lyrics. “It’s weird to not be going to the ranch.”

“Gramps’ll miss your help this summer, that’s for sure.”

“Will he be mad at me for not going?”

Dad shrugged. “He’s Gramps. He’s always mad about something or at somebody. Somethin’ to stew on gives him reason to get up in the morning, I think. He’ll get over it.”

“He didn’t get over you moving to Detroit,” I said, spinning my pencil between his fingers.

“True. But that’s different. Every Monroe boy since before the Civil War has lived and died on the ranch. I broke a family tradition going back a hundred and fifty years.”

Conversation faded after that, and I watched the road and the corn fields and the blue sky spotted by puffs of white, listening to Jimi Hendrix singing “Purple Haze” and twist the guitar strings into shrieking banshees. I-75 eventually was replaced by M-72, and I felt myself nodding off. A while later, I blinked awake and Grand Traverse Bay sparkled off to the left, a dozen sails flashing white in the distance.

“Thought we were going to Interlochen?” I asked, rubbing my eyes. The bay was farther north.

“No rush. Thought we’d grab some lunch before I drop you off. Ain’t gonna see you for a while, you know.”

We ate at Don’s Drive-In, a retro burgers-fries-and-milkshakes kind of place, small and cramped, red plastic-leather booths, chrome table edges, and black-and-white checkered tiles on the walls. We didn’t talk much, but then we rarely did. Dad was a reserved man, and I’m a lot like him. I was content to eat my burger and sip my shake, worrying internally about spending an entire summer around a bunch of artsy kids I didn’t know. I’d grown up around silent, hard-bitten cowboys, men who chewed tobacco and swore and could—and often did—go days without much more than a grunt or two. I knew I was a talented artist, as capable with pens and pencils as with paint. What I wasn’t good with was people. 

“Don’t be nervous, son,” Dad said, apparently reading my mind. “Folks are folks, and they’ll either cotton to you or they won’t. That was my mom’s advice to me when I left for Detroit. Just be you. Don’t try to impress anyone. Let your work stand for itself.”

“This isn’t like school,” I said, dragging a fry through ketchup. “I know where I fit there: alone in the corner, with my notebook. I know where I belong on Gramps’s ranch. I know where I belong at home. I don’t know where I belong at an arts camp.”

“Wherever you are is where you belong. You’re a Monroe, Caden. That may not mean shit to anyone else, but it should mean something to you.”

“It does.”

“Well, there you go.” Dad wiped his fingers with a napkin and sat back. “Look, I get it. I grew up surrounded by thousands of acres of open land, all hills and horses, rarely seeing anyone but Mom and Dad, Gerry, and the other hands. Even school was the same kids from kindergarten to graduation. I knew everybody in my world, and they knew me. When I moved to Detroit it was scary as hell. Suddenly I was surrounded by all these buildings and thousands of people who didn’t know me or give a shit about whether I made it or not.”

“People confuse me.” 

“That’s cause most people don’t make a damn lick of sense, if you ask me. Women especially. Trick with women is to not try and figure them out. You won’t. Just accept ’em as they are, and try to go with the flow. Good advice for life in general, really.”

“Do you understand Mom?”

Dad let out a rare laugh, but I didn’t miss the way the corners of his eyes tightened. Things had been strange and tense around the house lately, but neither Mom nor Dad was the type to talk about what was bugging them. “I’ve known your mother for twenty-five years,” he said, “and been married to her for twenty-two. And no, I still don’t understand her. I know her, I get her, but I don’t always understand the way her mind works, how she comes up with ideas or arrives at her conclusions or why she changes her mind so goddamn much. Makes my head spin, but that’s how women are and that’s how she is and I love her for it.” 

All too soon, Dad was paying the bill and the truck doors were slamming and we were hauling down US-31 toward Interlochen. The ride was quick, and then Dad was parking and unstrapping my duffel bag from the bed of the truck and handing it to me. We stood toe to toe, neither of us speaking or moving.

Dad pointed to the rows of tiny wooden cabins. “That’s the cabins. You know which one you’re in? ”

“Yeah, number twenty.”

“Alright then. Well, guess I’ll be going. Gonna be a long drive without you snoring in the passenger seat.” 

“You’re just turning right back around and driving home?” I asked, then immediately hated how childish and whiny that had sounded.

Dad lifted an eyebrow in reproach. “You’re here for three weeks, Cade. You expect me to sit on the beach and twiddle my thumbs for a month? Your mom needs me home, and I’ve got projects to finish at work.”

I felt the question bubbling up, coming out, and couldn’t stop it from emerging. “Is—is everything okay? With you and mom?”

Dad closed his eyes briefly, breathed in slowly and let it out, then met my eyes. “We’ll talk when you get home. Nothing for you to worry about right now.”

That sounded oddly like an evasion, which was entirely out of character for my gruff, straight-talking father. “I just feel like things are—”

“It’s fine, Caden. Just focus on having fun, meeting new people, and learning. Keep in mind that this is three weeks out of your entire life, and you don’t ever have to see these people again.” Dad stuck his left hand into his hip pocket and wrapped his right arm awkwardly around my shoulders. “I love you, son. Have a good time. Don’t forget to call at least once, or your mom’ll have a hairy conniption.”

I returned the embrace with one arm. “Love you too. Drive safe.”

Dad nodded and turned back toward his truck, then stopped and dug into his back pocket. He pulled out a folded square of $20 bills and handed them to me. “Just in case.”

“I’ve been saving my allowance,” I said. Dad always expected me to earn money, never gave it for free.

“It’s…just take it.” 

I stuffed the money into my hip pocket and shifted my weight. “Thanks.”

“Bye.”

“Bye.” I waved once, and watched Dad drive away. 

I’d spent months at a time away from my parents, lived on Gramps’s ranch for months at a time. Goodbye was nothing new. So why did this one feel so unsettling?

Book 1 of 3
Book 2, Irreplaceable, out now.

Review:
I fell in love with these characters right off the bat!! Cassie is a very strong-willed and stubborn girl, and at times so frustrating. She is afraid of being hurt again after being cheated on by her ex Mark. Logan is the hot and rich neighbor that just moved in. He is the playboy that loves having his way with women.He is exactly what Cassie does not want in her life.
Cassie soon finds out Logan is a single dad and raising Oliver alone with the help of his sister. She instantly falls in love with Oliver when she catches him playing in her old tree house. As the story goes Cassie soon realizes that Logan is not at all what she thought he was. She tries to keep her distance and not fall for him but I mean come on how can you not fall for Logan West right?!?! This story is HOT and Steamy even thou it has no Sex in it! I give this book a 5 star review! This captivated me from the beginning to the end!

?

Review:

Jessica Hawkins is a fabulous author. This book held my attention from the beginning all the way to the end!! I loved how she slowly developed the characters and took the time to make you truly feel what they are feeling. This is not your ordinary romance book, it has everything  from cheating, to lies, and HOT Lust!!

You have Olivia, the wife and career woman, married to Bill the safe husband who does not ask questions and is so busy wrapped up with his career that he doesn't see the broken side of her! Then, you have David Dylan (smoking HOT) bachelor who is a BIG TIME architect in Chicago. David is first introduced when Olivia and Bill go with some friends to a ballet. David and Olivia's eyes met up in a crowded room an it is an intense moment where she felt a strong draw towards him! As, the book continues they meet up again and again that's where things start to get really confusing for Olivia!  She feels things for a man that is not her husband. 

Ok, I am going to stop here because, I don't wanna spoil the book for yall! I really recommend this book for everyone it is a HOT steamy read that will leave you wet and wanting more! Pick up this book today!! :)  I give this book 5 STARS!!!!
