What Readers Are Saying:

“This was such a unique storyline…The words jumped off the page and touched me to my core. It made me think, it made me feel, it made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made feel blessed for those I have in my life.” 

– TalkBooks

“Compton’s debut novel is beautiful. This is the only word I can think of when trying to describe The Counting-Downers using only one word. I highlighted so much of the text, my kindle copy looks more yellow than white….You will question, if you are a writer, how the F*CK you’ll find the courage to even attempt such beauty.”

– Cynthia Rodriguez,  Author of Crashing Souls

“This book had me in tears from the very beginning. It touched me in so many ways. It’s so beautiful. This is a book I will forever carry in my heart.” 

– Book Obsessed Girl

“I have nothing bad to say about this book. Honestly, every word was strategically placed, every thought was beautiful, every action was written with such precision and passion; this debut novel spoke to me and will stick with me for a LONG time.” 

– Michelle T Bibliophile

“It was honestly the best book I’ve ever read!” 

– Bookish Emily

And suddenly, I realize that all those books and movies had gotten it wrong.
When you find your souls reflection in another, you shouldn’t be aware of anything other than their body, yours, and the space between.
You shouldn’t be looking for someone whose kiss causes you to escape reality by transporting you to another time and place. Look for the person whose kiss grounds you firmly in the moment, whose arms hold you safely in the now.
When your lips lock with your destiny, you should be aware of every prickle on your skin that rises to greet them, every strand of their hair that caresses your fingers, every gasp of air that reaches your ears.
Most of us kiss with our eyes closed. But that’s not always a good thing. It depends why they’re shut.
If you asked most people to imagine themselves in a situation, the first thing they would do is close their eyes.
You should kiss with your eyes closed to heighten your other senses and block out everything but the now, not to escape to somewhere else.
Reality should be better than your imagination.
Because when it’s right, like this is right, you won’t have to use your imagination at all.

💔 💔 BLOG TOUR 💔 💔 BLEEDING LOVE                                     by HARPER SLOAN



Title: Bleeding Love

Author: Harper Sloan

Series: Hope Town Book Two

Release Date: 14th July, 2015

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Age: Mature Adult








Meet Liam & Megan in the newest stand alone in the Hope Town Series by Harper Sloan!






I’ve loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.

Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It’s that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.

Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.

He’s on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.



Reviewed by Sarah Bookhooked


Where do I start with this fantastic read! I love to highlight parts of a book that stand out for me and all I can say is this book has more highlights than I’ve ever made before! This is the story of Liam and Megan. Ooh, and not forgetting little Molly, Megan’s daughter. After reading this, there’s no way you can forget this beautiful, adorable and lovable little girl.

We first met Megan in Dani and Cohen’s book. We knew she had been through an awful lot after losing her husband, but it’s her past that we really get to see and learn about in Bleeding Love. Boy, has Megan had it rough! I’m not one for spoilers; however, there were so many times I just wanted to be able to hold Megan’s hand and tell her to let go and that everything would be okay. But Liam does that and so much more as he wants her to feel again.

“I want you, darlin’ to feel. That feeling your body gets when it’s sparking at every nerve. When your skin feels tight and your stomach drops. When you don’t know if your heart is beating in your chest or coming through your throat. I want you to feel that wind in your hair, pulse racing, wild, free as a bird, stomach-dropping rush. I want you to feel.”

Liam. I really don’t know where to start with his beautiful character. He has the most amazing heart and what he does for Megan is open her eyes, help her let people in and love life again. Yet he’s still that alpha male just like his dad, Beck. He’s got the same heart and determination to get Megan and little Molly to be his.

Just as Dee tells Megan…
“These men, it’s just how they are. When they set their minds to something there is nothing and no one that will hold them back. And sweetheart, before you even let this thought take root in your mind, when they know, they know and they know in a way that sticks forever.”

As with all Harper’s books, there is the steam factor and let me just say boy, can Harper write one hot and steamy scene!! Even though Megan is on cloud nine after Liam manages to get her to open up and feel again, it only takes one comment for her to doubt and begin to worry all over again about the future when Liam finally admits his feeling for her.

“You love me?” “Head over heels, in fucking love, darlin’,” I utter back. “You’re in love with me?” “I’ll say it as many times as you need it, but it won’t change. I’m in love with you. I love you. I love you, Megan—you and Molly. So fucking in love with you that I knew it even before you said your first word.

I loved how Liam was so open and honest and never held anything back from Megan.

“I asked you a while ago to just take my hand, darlin’, I wasn’t just asking you to do the action. It was my nonverbal promise to you that I wouldn’t let go. Each step forward, we do together. I’m here and I’m not letting go.”

Harper’s writing never ever fails me; this book has been beautifully written and I can’t wait to see whose story is next!



His mouth leaves mine and with his hand still on my leg, he demands, “Dig your heels in deep, baby.”

I give him what he wants, but not because he told me to.  I give him what he wants because when his hand leaves my leg and pushes into the mattress, bringing his body up he goes even deeper into my body and those heels push hard.

Just as he demanded earlier, my hands go to his shoulders on my own accord and as he takes my body hard, my nails dig in with my heels still pushing hard against the small of his back.  Our eyes never leave each other’s probing gaze.  Never once do I take my eyes away from his, so full of lust that I know there isn’t an ounce of control left in his body.

He drops his head and I lift up to meet him in a kiss so sweet it doesn’t match the powerful way that he’s taking my body.  A kiss that gives me more than words ever could at this moment.  His hips slow and as his tongue rolls against mine, his hips start to take me in slow, deep rolls.  He doesn’t pull back, just rocks his hips against mine.

I push up and cry out when he slips even deeper.

His lips come from mine and his hooded eyes open a sliver.  “Feels like heaven,” he says softly.  “Everything, darlin’.  Feels like everything.”






Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed ‘Estrogen Ocean’, much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero–the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn’t take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.

About Mr. Wright Forever

He was supposed to be the man I loved – forever.

He shot that fantasy to Hell. He broke my heart and shattered my soul.

I was moving on – or it looked that way to those on the outside looking in. I’d moved to Chicago and landed myself a killer job. I was making friends and then out of the blue he was there – and all over again I felt myself falling. This time, it wasn’t an easy fall. I fought it hard.

But one night with Kade Wright can never be one simple night. I should have known. I’ve been here before.

From the very beginning, Mr. Wright Now was always Mr. Wright Forever.

Excerpt one of Mr. Wright Forever

“What are we doing, Kade?”

I loved hearing my name on her lips. There’s nothing better than the sweet sound of her voice saying my name. Even when it’s flowing from those lips in anger, I liked it. I just liked me – on her.

“We’re not fighting us anymore.” My reply was firm and her eyes widened in shock.

“We aren’t?”

I shook my head resolutely. “No, Nelena, we aren’t.”

“How do you figure?”

I could feel my blood heat in my veins as I took a step toward her, pushing her from the elevator and into my space by first infiltrating hers. I wanted to push my way into everything that is her and hers. I wanted to infiltrate every crevice of her heart, every inch of her body, until I was too entwined within her to ever lose her again.

She gasped a breathless sound and I tried not to let her see just how intimately her breathlessness affected me. It took me all of seconds to open the door of my condo before pushing her inside. I know she’s fighting a war inside – I know because I can see it through the honey brown of her eyes, and like a predator, I can sense the increased frequency that is the beating of her heart.

“Stop fighting this.” I whispered, pushing her back against the closed door of my condo, caging her within my arms on either side of her body. “You know it’s pointless. I know you feel for me what I feel for you. I know you’ve craved me every moment we’ve been apart.”

“No.” She shook her head adamantly. I’m really not sure if she’s trying to convince me, or herself.

I continued as though she never even spoke. “Your body craves mine. I know because even now, even though you’re fighting me with everything you have, your leaning into me. Your chest is pushing toward mine, acting against your every instinct to fight me.” Her breaths quickly turned short. “You’re breathing is quick and sharp. You respond to my voice on a primal level and you know this reaction isn’t something that should be fought. Fighting this – us – shouldn’t even be considered.”

Excerpt two of Mr. Wright Forever

“Do you want to know what you are to me, Nelena?”

Confusion settled in my mind before understanding pushed it away and I nodded, breathing. “Yes.”

“You are my everything. You are the air I breathe, the bright to my days and the warmth to my nights. You are the keeper of my heart and the healer of all my wounds. You are the face of my future and the promise of my happiness. You make me worthy.” Tears were pouring from my eyes, but I didn’t move to wipe them away. I didn’t want to stop him. “You’re the woman I love more than my own life. For you, there is nothing I wouldn’t sacrifice.” He lowered his lips to mine, kissing me softly. “You are my everything.”

“I love you.” I whispered against his lips.

“I am in love with you.” His words were a vow, a promise and a statement rolled into one beautiful package.

When he lowered his body to mine – filling me – I’ve never lived a moment where I felt so complete.

This joining with him was something I couldn’t explain. It was a force unlike anything I had ever known up to this moment. It was the very thing I existed for – the very reason for my beating heart. This love, with Kade, was magnetic. It was so blissfully perfect in all its imperfection.

KFF’s 3.5 star review by Sharon Thérèse Nuttall

I really enjoyed the first book in this series so when I was given the opportunity to read the follow-up, I was over the moon. However, as I became more invested in Kade and Nelena’s story, something didn’t quite seem to fit. Where had that super-hot, gorgeous Alpha male disappeared to. He’d become kind of mellow, more your run of the mill guy with those good looks and missing all that hotness he’d had in Vegas.

Once bitten, twice shy; Nelena’s Las Vegas holiday was exactly what she needed. Letting her hair down and having a good time with her bestie in Vegas wasn’t on the cards but just before tying the knot, she discovers her sister and fiancé had been going at it! So off the girls trot to “sin city.” There she has a no strings attached fling with professional dancer, Kade, which suits him fine, too…how could it not?

Neither were banking on their steamy but short affair ending the way it did. She goes back to Edmonton, Alberta. He goes to Chicago for a pressing family issue. Then at the beginning of book two, we get to meet Kade’s mother. I could see the author had gone to great lengths in developing her character. She comes over as the strong successful business woman which she is, and I really liked her son’s relationship with her. Well done here Ms Carbonneau. You hit her personality on the nail. And this lady has something brewing that made me think how on earth she found out about her son’s affair in the first place. The whys, wherefores and reasons for doing what she did is unravelled in a plot well-written; nevertheless, there were times when I got a tad exasperated with the two protagonists. There was too much hemming and hawing on both parts and not enough action for me. Here we have a guy with the world at his feet, well-educated, a man of the world and he’s doubting himself! When he does make his mind up, it’s only because he questions himself after chatting with a friend. At times, I wanted to jump into my Kindle and give Lena a good telling off when she’s wallowing in self-pity. How she lets off steam made me smile in it’s originality and I easily related to her culinary ways. Saying that, I really connected with her regardless of her indecisiveness and was so pleased she was going to give Kade a run for his money.

A scene in the book made me think what it is we all have about lifts. Elevators! Some of the biggest one-liners are said as the doors shut in the face of someone wanting to say more and here, the author didn’t let me down. The quote below really hit home!

Nelena ~ “I said stay away from me, Kade. I’ve never been more serious in my life. I’m here for a job – not you.”

To sum up this read. I adored both points of view. Kade is a beautiful soul who doesn’t have a bad streak in him. And although Nelena’s stronger than before, she still needed a push in the right direction. The secondary characters I liked immensely, but the story’s flow could have been a little quicker. I do recommend reading this book because it’s beautifully written and well worth reading.

About Alannah Carbonneau

I live in Alberta, Canada, where the weather is forever changing (without warning). I am engaged to be married in August 2015 to my high school sweetheart and love of my life. There are no children in my life as of right now, but we do have a handful of rambunctious cats (four) and a testy, rescued Shepard/Husky, who take up a lot of my time.

Ever since I can remember, I’ve adored the written word. English was always my favorite class and that may be biased because I can’t count to save my life, so math was a horror! I remember the very first novel I ever read, Shocking Pink by Erica Spindler. It was the most interesting of the covers on my mom’s bookshelf (probably because it was pink) and I was way too young to be reading that novel. But I fell in love. From there, I read almost everything from V.C. Andrews.

My writing started out as poetry, which then evolved to songs, and later into novels. I was never one for the short stories as I found it too difficult to pack everything I imagined into something so small. I now have multiple novels published independently. I write both novels for young adults and novels for adults – all romance.

Despite my favorite younger reading material, I now adore writing and reading all things romance.

            RELEASE BLITZ ~ OUT OF TIME                              by BETH FLYNN



OUT OF TIME is the HIGHLY ANTICIPATED sequel to NINE MINUTES where Grizz, Kit & Grunt’s gritty tale continues!  You aren’t going to want to miss this!

Add this gritty MC romance to your TBR HERE 








Out of Time is book two in a series. It is not a standalone novel. I highly recommend that you read my first novel, Nine Minutes, to be able to understand the background stories of the main characters. There are many twists and turns in both stories that can best be connected if read consecutively.

Although I do answer all of the outstanding questions from Nine Minutes, there is more to this story, and some readers may consider it a cliffhanger. If you do not like cliffhangers, you may want to wait until the third novel is released in 2016.

They thought with his execution it would be over.

They were wrong.

The leader of one of South Florida’s most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs has been put to death by lethal injection. Days later, his family and friends should have been picking up the pieces, moving on. Instead, they’ve been catapulted into a world so twisted and dangerous even the most ruthless among them would be stunned to discover the tangled web of deception, not only on the dangerous streets of South Florida but all the way to the top.

In this gripping follow-up novel to Nine Minutes, Out of Time takes readers from the sun-drenched flatlands of 1950s Central Florida to the vivid tropical heat of Fort Lauderdale to the halls of Florida’s Death Row as we finally learn the gritty backstory of Jason “Grizz” Talbot and the secret he spent his life trying to conceal.

Not even Grizz’s inner circle knows his full story—the tragedy that enveloped his early life, the surprise discovery that made him the government’s most wanted and most feared, and the depths of his love for Ginny, the tenderhearted innocent he’d once abducted and later made his wife.

Once Grizz’s obsession and now the mother of his child, Ginny has spent years grieving the man she’d first resisted and then came to love. Now remarried to Tommy, a former member of the gang, the pair have spent more than a decade trying desperately to live a normal existence far from the violent, crime-ridden world they’d once carved out on the edge of the Florida Everglades. For Tommy, especially, the stakes are high. Desperately in love with Ginny for years, he’s finally living his dream: married to the woman he never thought he could have. But even with the façade of normalcy—thriving careers, two beautiful children, and a genuinely happy and loving marriage—they can’t seem to put the past behind them. Every time they turn around, another secret is revealed, unraveling the very bonds that hold them together.

And with Grizz finally put to death, now Ginny has learned secrets so dark, so evil she’s not even sure she can go on.

Will these secrets tear their love to pieces? And how far will Grizz go to protect what he still considers his, even from beyond the grave?
