TRWWM
Axton
I thought I had everything I needed in life. More money than I would ever spend in my lifetime. A successful band that traveled all around the world. Girls throwing themselves at me on a daily basis. A kind of pseudo family in the Demon’s Wings guys and Emmie. And then she fell into my life. The second my eyes landed on the blonde bombshell with her sassy mouth and those hot piercings and tats, I knew that I’d finally found someone I wanted for life.

Dallas
I fell hard for a Rock God. When it was over, I was left shattered. But I was stronger than anyone—especially my mother—gave me credit for. I picked myself up and worked my ass off to get through nursing school, putting the rest of my life on hold to finally fulfill my dreams.

When tragedy strikes, Dallas and Axton are thrown together again. Dallas is along for the ride as OtherWorld goes on a three month tour. Will Axton finally be able to convince her that his feelings go deeper than he first let her see? Or will Dallas be left wondering if Axton Cage was just THE ROCKER WHO WANTS Me? ***Mature Content***

NEW RELEASE & GIVEAWAY: Two in the Afternoon (A Day of Pleasure, bk2) by CORA CADE

HAPPY HAPPY Release day to my soul sister Cora Cade. I ❤ you so much!!!

Today I am so excited to bring you another FAB read.  I devoured it just this morning, I was supposed to read on vacation.  But I left my damn kindle at home. EEEP.

 
Two in the Afternoon (A Day of Pleasure, Book 2)Two in the Afternoon by Cora Cade

When it comes to hand-to-heart combat, no hold is barred.

A Day of Pleasure, Book 2

Molly Ryan survived one attack, and she’s not about to be a sitting duck for another. With her attacker harassing her from his jail cell, she packs up her life in Chicago, follows her Delta Force brother to North Carolina and gets work in a pub.

Men in uniform are definitely off her menu, but her boss’s friend, Army Ranger Callum Eversman, is one hot hunk she’d like to sample.

Home on a two-week furlough, Cal has agreed to watch over Molly as a favor to fellow Ranger Noah Harper. Accomplishing his mission without her noticing? That’s going to be tough, as any idiot can see their sparks of attraction from a mile away.

Despite her hands-off-military-men policy, Molly is tempted to indulge, just this once, in a no-strings-attached fling. No dating, no kissy face, no hearts involved. But when her past threatens her future, there’s only one man to turn to. The one who’ll risk everything—body, heart, and soul—to protect her.

Warning: Contains an Army Ranger with a gruff exterior and heart of gold, a heroine with a sassy attitude, and some hot borderline-public sex.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was so excited to go back and visit the Drunkin’ Duck and all the characters. I’ve been waiting impatiently for Molly’s story. And Cora Cade did not disappoint.

I LOVED Cal & Molly’s story. I also loved hearing about what Tenn & Noah have been up to. I’m dying for Chris’s story. I also am excited for the new characters who have been introduced.

Cora Cade weaves fabulous stories…hot, steamy, with great plot and even better characters. She better write faster as I’m already waiting for more!!!

SOOOOOO…In honor and celebration of this awesomeness, BCWAB is giving away 5 e-copies of this book.  So we currently have 2 GIVEAWAYS going on…THIS AND PATRICIA A. RASEY’S.  We will pick all 10 winners on Friday…SO COMMENT!!!  For this one…comment and tell us who is your favorite hero…cowboy, military, biker…which one?  I have to say I am a sucker for a military man BUT I am always open to ALL others 🙂

OH…I almost forgot.  DO NOT FORGET TO CHECK OUT BOOK 1 IN THIS SERIES.

Morning Light (A Day of Pleasure, #1)Morning Light by Cora Cade

His toughest battle is ahead the battle for one woman’s heart.

A Day of Pleasure, Book 1

During Noah Harper’s ten years as an Army Ranger, Tennyson Sharpe’s letters were his lifeline. With each mail call, the bright and vibrant girl of his youth slowly became the woman of his dreams.

Now he’s home and he’s in hell. The problem? Tenn is his little brother’s best friend. Claiming her risks all kinds of collateral damage.

Tenn is getting nervous. Since Noah came home, they’ve been circling each other, neither willing to risk the status quo. It s time to kick things up a notch and make a play for the man she’s loved since she was sixteen before someone else does.

Dressing to impress works better than she could have dreamed. After a scorching interlude leads to a steamy morning wrapped in each others arms, reality comes crashing down. Shining a devastating light on Tenn’s deepest fears and forcing Noah into scramble mode to convince her forever was always on his mind.

Warning: This book contains some serious foreplay in the great outdoors; stand-up sex with a hot, stand-up guy; and a wounded Army Ranger who s determined to leave no heart behind especially the one belonging to the girl of his dreams.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book, my only complaint….need more NOW! Cora introduces us to great characters, characters that make you yearn for more. I cannot wait for her next book. Noah is HAWT, HAWT, HAWT and Tenn is smart and sassy, just how I like. I have a real thing for Chris so I hope his book is next and one of the best parts…she used my fave saying….If you like HOT SEXY BONE MELTING ROMANCE…READ, READ, READ!!!!!!

Spirit Me AwaySpirit Me Away by Patricia A. Rasey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A sexy paranormal ghost story filled with romance.

Luke Braden is stuck in a ghostly limbo and can’t move on to an afterlife. When he was alive he was a womanizer, a real Mr. love em and leave em man. When he realizes he is dead and stuck between his condo and a void he drifts to occasionally he finds taking stock of the life he led and finds himself lonely when a beautiful woman finally moves in.

Holly Andrews hasn’t had the best luck when it comes to men. After dumping her fiancé for cheating on her with a co-worker she longs to move out of her parents house and move on with her life. What she gets is the sexiest man she has ever seen and turns her on like no other but with one little problem, he’s a dead.

This wasn’t a typical romance in the fact that one was other worldly but during their time together these two both did a lot of soul searching and began to change. There was plenty of sexy moments between these two and even a bit of suspense towards the end. As with romantic ghost stories you wonder how there can ever be a happy ever after with one alive and one dead. I have to say I loved the ending. If you’re looking for a sexy ghost to make your girly bits tingle Luke is the ghost for you. ~Cindy

HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!

Cindy and I thank you for popping over.

Blog Tour for Deadly Betrayal by Kristine Cayne‏

Deadly Betrayal Official

ImageProxy (1)

Release Date: July 21, 2014

An Afghan woman’s rights activist with a dark secret.

Azita Seraj, doctor and women’s rights activist in Afghanistan, is horrified to learn that her late husband’s brother, Khalid Mullazai, is giving his eleven-year-old niece to a militant warlord. Desperate to save the girl, she reaches out to the only hope she has: an American soldier she treated several years earlier for a near-fatal gunshot wound. A wound he received in an ambush she’d unwittingly initiated. Can she enlist his aid and still keep secret her betrayal?

An American soldier searching for answers.

Kaden Christiansen never forgot the beautiful Afghan doctor who saved his life, and when he receives her cry for help, he doesn’t hesitate. He relishes the opportunity to see Azita again, and being in-country will give him a chance to hunt down the person responsible for the ambush that left one of his men dead.

A deadly conspiracy that threatens them both…

Pursued by Mullazai and the warlord’s fighters as they travel across the country disguised and posing as a married couple, Kaden and Azita begin to fall for their own act and for each other. But Kaden senses that Azita is holding back. Is the reason their cultural differences, or something darker?

Deadly Betrayal (Deadly Vices, #3)

My review for Deadly Betrayal by Kristine Cayne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Forbidden love in war torn Afghanistan is the backdrop for this suspenseful story that shows us the Afgan barbaric traditions against women and children.

Two years ago Azita Seraj, an Afgan doctor, saved Delta Force operator Kaden Christiansen’s life after they were betrayed on a mission. Neither has forgotten the other but their lives were on two different continents. Now two years later, her dead husband brother gives her 11 year old niece to a warlord. Azita is appalled at this old tradition and eventually asks Kaden to help her in getting her back and he waste no time in agreeing.

What I would consider the core of this series is a group of men that have forged a bond so strong that any of them would give their life for the other. Kaden now works for a private security business along with a fellow teammate and POW Jake and a movie star (Nic Lamoureux from the first book) in Canada.

From here the majority of the book takes place in Afghanistan and we get a up close look at how life is lived and all the dangers to not only the people that live there but also to the Westerners (Americans). Azita and Kaden go on a harrowing journey to save her niece all while trying to fight the attraction they feel for each other because acting on that could get Azita killed with the traditions of the Afgan ways. As the story went along and things got direr for Azita and Kaden I wondered how the author was going to be able to pull off happy ending. This kept me turning the pages and before that came there were some heartbreaking moments but in the end I loved the conclusion to the story.

New Release and Giveaway: Hot-Blooded: An Ohana Novel (Volume 1) by Kendall Grey

GOOD MORNNING AND HAPPY RELEASE DAY KENDALL GREY!!!!!

Ohana is everything… When an accident claims her mother’s life, Keahilani Alana must take charge of her `ohana (family) or risk losing what little they have. With an underage brother to care for and no education, she has few options. The door to a heavenly hellish opportunity opens when she stumbles upon a valuable secret her mother left behind on the slopes of an extinct volcano—a legacy that tempts the family with riches beyond their wildest dreams. But the secret is much bigger and more sinister than they realize. As reality unravels and exposes eerie truths about the ‘ohana that should have remained deep under the mountain, Keahilani must either resist the call of her blood or risk being consumed by its darkness. Blake Murphy is an assassin working to infiltrate a new Hawaiian cartel. His investigation reveals that Keahilani, the sexy surfing instructor he pegged as an informant, is much closer to the drug ring than he thought. Passion ignites between them in the bedroom, but their ironclad ties to opposing interests pit them against each other everywhere else. When tensions reach the breaking point and her ‘ohana is threatened, the only cure for Keahilani’s hot-blooded fury is a loaded clip with a body bag chaser. They don’t call her Pele for nothing. WARNING: Hot-Blooded does NOT end with a happily ever after. It contains drug use and graphic sex, language, and violence. The story is intended to entertain, not to condone or glorify illegal or immoral activities. This book is unsuitable for sensitive readers and those under the age of 18.

Hot-Blooded: An Ohana Novel by Kendall Grey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Riveting!

That’s the word that plays over and over in my mind when I try to put this book into words.

I won an ARC and decided to start late yesterday. Well…I could not put it down. I finished last night, I slept on it because I’m afraid I cannot do justice how I felt about this book. I have a book hangover that’s for sure.

Kendal Grey’s writing voice is truly a gift. From the moment I started I was sucked in. I enjoyed the simultaneous stories, the journey, the wild ride, AND amazing how it all collided.

Pele was a kick ass, hard ass, take no prisoners kind of gal and just when you thought she might soften…BOOM. I’m not a spoiler gal….so suffice to say. If you want dark, sometimes violent, sometimes scratch your head…OH NO SHE DIDN’T ride of your life. YOU must read. OHANA/Family….AND what a family.

Again I will go back to the word riveted…I was glued, memorized by the tale that Kendal weaved. When an author makes you FEEL, well then in my opinion they have done there job. Whether you love or hate a character the fact that you FELT means mission accomplished!

Well done Kendal Grey…I can’t wait for the next book…I’m looking forward to another wild ass ride!

Please help me welcome and congratulate Kendall Grey.  As you can see from my review, I really enjoyed this book.  AND I am in awe of this authors talent.

I have been trying to get on the blog and give shout outs to the great books that I have had the pleasure of reading.  In honor of Hot-Blooded releasing, we will be giving away an e-copy to a lucky winner.  Leave a comment…tell me have you ever read Kendall?  Do you have a FAVE?  OR are you a newbie and would like to take a walk on the wild side?

I am off on vaca on Tuesday morning with my family.  I will have my great friend Cindy pick a winner sometime on Wednesday.  I will gift it when I am home from Disney 7/22.

THANKS for popping over and checking us out.

HAVE A KICK ASS MONDAY!!!

HEINOUS by Debra Webb

July 11th

July 11th

The body count is rising. The serial killer obsessed with Birmingham’s Deputy Chief Jess Harris is getting closer, and he knows Jess’s secret. Can she protect the child she carries and the people she loves from Eric Spears and his followers?

The body farm discovered in a small Alabama town has many buried secrets. Is the truth about Jess’s past buried there too? Will learning what really happened to her mother and father help Jess stop the killer determined to have her? Only three more levels in the Faces of Evil series! Don’t miss this one!

MY REVIEW: 4 STARS

I really enjoyed digging back into Jess & Dan’s story. Debra Webb never fails to give you a crazy wild ride while reading her. It’s coming down to the wire and I’m ready for the face-off between her and Spears. Eric Spears is one nasty piece of work. I’m interested, who am I kidding…I’m dying to see what is going to happen.

She has just the right balance of stories going on. Between the serial killer, the cases building on Dan and the other surrounding characters all having there own story lines. I have some ideas on what I think will happen, but when that happens is just when Deb usually throws a big loop into the story. I’m eagerly looking forward to the next book in November. My favorite part…the love story between Dan & Jess. They have been to hell and back and found each other again… I’m a true romantic!

This series is a must read if you enjoy mystery, bedlam, romance with twist and turns all throughout. Debra Webb is on my auto MUST buy list!!!!

HAPPY HAPPY RELEASE DAY Debra!!!

Good Morning AND Happy Friday 🙂

Today I would like everyone to say hello to the fabulous Debra Webb.  I was lucky to read Heinous, bk 9 in The Faces of Evil series a little early.  This series is one of my all time favorites.  There are only 2 books (bk 10 Depraved, then 11 & 12 together) left in the series and although I can’t wait to see how it all plays out.  I will be sad when it’s over.  The main characters as well as supporting ones are so well written that you are immediately sucked into their world.  And the villain…well you don’t get much creepier.

Debra has generously offered to give away…a t-shirt, a tote-bag and a paperback copy of Heinous.

The Faces of Evil Books…
0.5)Silence 1)Obsession 2)Impulse 3)Power 4)Rage 5)Revenge 6)Ruthless
