This is the first book in a duet, a well written coming of age story.

Winnie is a seventeen year old girl, an orphan when her dad died of a drug overdose and she now lives with her stepmother Tess, a stripper and a hardcore drug addict. She is trapped in a hell-hole and can’t do much until she turns eighteen. Her life feels hopeless and her way of coping is trying to be invisible to others. There are two men in her life: Trey and Jasper.

Trey is Winnie’s anchor and he was her late dad’s best friend. He has dubious connections, he is twice her age and when his best friend died he took it upon himself to take care of Winnie as much as he can when he is around. He is very protective of her and they have a very deep bond and connection.

Jasper goes to the same school with Winnie but he only got to know her when she started working at The Whip. He is a devoted and protective friend and also loves her but he knows she loves Trey more. She feels she should give Jasper a chance but her connection with Trey has been there since she was a young girl. How can he compete with Trey when they only got to know each other recently?

This coming of age story involves a damaged heroine, one who is also strong enough to survive the hardship she has experienced.  Winnie’s life is so miserable but one marvels at her resilience. She is a mature seventeen year old with goals and dreams, she is only biding her time until she comes of age and can get out of the trailer home she shares with Tess. Amidst all the put downs, the physical and emotional abuse she gets from Tess, Winnie is a fighter and one can only root for her happiness. But between Jasper and Trey, who is the better choice? Be warned that this book ends in a massive cliffhanger but don’t despair as book two comes out in April 2018. I suggest that you have a box of chocolates by your side whilst reading this as it can be quite depressing.


I’ve become a prisoner in my own body, held captive by my thoughts. Without a TV, there’s not much to do besides write, draw, and think. When I run out of paper, I get antsy, and I talk to Dad, praying he’s watching over me. Because, no matter how hard I try to block out the noise, the inside of my brain feels like a cluttered junk drawer full of odds and ends that don’t matter. A bunch of trash that’s stuck in a small space with no purpose.

Sometimes, the voices are so loud, I pace in circles until the ratty carpet fibers stop laughing at me. If I don’t, I’ll end up in the bathroom with the blade against my thigh. On days when I can’t get the chatter to stop, I run the smooth metal over my skin and watch the blood seep out.

Blood—the lifeline that unites a family.

All my family is dead or gone.

God, I hate the sight of blood. The smell. The consistency. The way it smears and stains everything it touches. But, once the blade touches my skin, I forget about Tess and how little I have. Suddenly, that little cut is all I can think about, and I love the way it silences the screaming inside my head.

For those few seconds of peace, I forget that Dad’s not coming back, that Trey is gone, and how Tess isn’t ever going to be the mother I need her to be. I’m no longer lonely and afraid. I’m the girl who looks in the mirror and likes what she sees.

I am me. Nobody else.

Gallimore has arrived at a crossroad in life.
A short-lived scandal that had made her the darling of the BDSM

figuring out her own love life. 
For five
years, January shared a long-distance love affair with French rock legend,
Etienne Marceaux. Their relationship is passionate but comfortable. Caught in
the whirlwind between New York and Paris, they indulge in stolen moments in
between their chaotic celebrity lives.
Etienne certainly knows how to entertain her with his Dominance, January
realizes that something is missing. Now a thirty-something actress, she wonders
how long her career will endure, and she questions some of the decisions she’s
On a
spontaneous trip with her best friend to Provence, January encounters a chance
meeting with a younger Englishman, Nigel Hereford-Smyth. With his naivete and
somewhat awkward aristocratic ways, Nigel, nevertheless, sweeps January off her
Louboutin pumps.
As they
romp about the French countryside, January tutors her young suitor on the finer
points of BDSM, and Nigel unwittingly leads January on a deep exploration of
what really matters in her life. While she allows herself to revel in the bliss
of a possible new man in her life, she also realizes that Nigel carries his own
set of baggage.
Forced to
leave Nigel by her filming schedule, January returns to the hustle of
Hollywood, only to find her confusion mounting.
Will she
choose Etienne, who makes her body sizzle…or Nigel, whose charm and manners leave

This is the first book I’ve read from the author. A different kind of BDSM romance set in Paris, Provence and Avignon. The three main characters in this story are January, Etienne and Nigel. Not quite a love triangle although it does involve three people but not at the same time. Three complex characters and written in three parts.

January is in her mid thirties, she was born and raised in Kansas and when she was old enough to leave town she did. She made a name for herself, albeit not in a good way but her BDSM lifestyle alienated her from her family. She was involved in a scandal which almost derailed her career but she recovered well and never looked back.

Etienne is her French lover of five years, a rock star and a lot older than January. His reluctance to commit to a permanent relationship drives a wedge between them and forces her to re-evaluate her priorities in life. He might be the perfect Dom for her but she feels he isn’t capable of giving her the happy ever after she wants.

When January took a step back from Etienne, her best friend Xavier, a famous fashion designer, brought her to Provence to cheer her up. There she meets Nigel, an Englishman much younger than her. There was mutual attraction between the two and it seems like he is also a willing apprentice to her kinky lifestyle. Is Nigel just a rebound for January or is he The One? Will she give him a chance?

Although the theme of this book is BDSM, there are a lot of factors that made this story very interesting. The author successfully interlaces a quirky lifestyle in the picturesque regions of Provence and Paris and added colourful characters into the mix. Nigel is the perfect book boyfriend and makes you root for him right from the start. Etienne is such a douche bag that one wonders why January wasted five years of her life with a selfish rock star. This book is divided into three parts: the first was when January was with Etienne, the second part was when she met Nigel and the last part was when she decided to take a break from both, weigh her options and to reconnect with her family in Kansas. This book is like a travelogue of France sprinkled with BDSM erotica and lots of sex toys I have never even heard of. Some role play scenarios in this book made my inner unicorn cringe and I must have rolled my eyes too much it made me dizzy but hey, whatever floats your boat, right? A light erotica romance one will enjoy reading.




Amazon bestselling author Juliet Braddock’s first efforts in creative writing came long before she learned to put crayon to paper.  In fact, she began spinning stories in her head nearly as soon as she could form complete sentences.  As long as she can remember, she’d always created sagas about imaginary friends, family members and pop culture icons, and kept everyone around her entertained with her witty—but often very tall—tales.

For her sixth Christmas, Juliet’s mother got her a child’s typewriter to preserve all of those creative thoughts filling her head, but she quickly switched to ball point pens and notebooks when the ribbon ran dry.

Most of Juliet’s early attempts at writing romance focused on members of Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet or young leading men on Broadway.  However, as she matured as a writer, she decided that it was just as much fun to create her own romantic heroes and heroines.

At an early age, she also developed a love for big cities, and the tallest of skyscrapers were never high enough for her.  Juliet’s wanderlust would eventually lure her to New York, a city she often visited during her formative years, and her love affair with Manhattan began.  She’d promised herself that one day she would return for good.

Juliet’s passion for writing and for big cities converged, and after graduating with a degree in Journalism, she decided to set out on a journey to find her heart…just where she’d left it.

A week after her college graduation, Juliet made the big move from a small town to New York City, where she has made her home ever since.

In between building a career in communications and writing on the side, she’s indulged in international travel, theater and art.  A wine and food buff, she’s by no means a connoisseur, but she can give a few good restaurant recommendations if you’re in the city.

“There’s something so inspiring about living in a city like New York that’s so rich in culture and so very vibrant. Every neighborhood has its own story to tell,” Juliet says.  “I often do my best plotting on the subway, just observing the lives unfolding around me.  New York truly has a billion stories nestled between the skyscrapers.”

Since she initially started writing, Juliet developed a condition called Pseudotumor, and while she is legally blind, she continues to turn out her steamy, romantic stories with the help of magnifying software for the vision-impaired.

“Throughout my lifetime, I’ve been through a lot, but I never let anything stop me from doing what I love to do,” Juliet says. “Writing has been my passion since I was a child, and as long as I have stories to share with my readers, I will continue.”

A proud New Yorker, Juliet couldn’t live anywhere else—except for Paris, perhaps—and is a gushing cat-mom to a Russian Blue mix who was rescued as a kitten from the streets of Brooklyn, where they make their home.

Juliet is legally blind, and spins her sexy romances with the assistance of software for the vision-impaired.

I don’t know what love is anymore.

Well, that’s not entirely true, but I’m going to tell you a little secret: I’ve lost the spark.

You know the kind of spark I’m talking about?

Where butterflies take flight in your stomach from two hands innocently colliding. Or catching your breath when you first meet someone attractive. Yeah, that spark.

Except I haven’t felt that feeling in forever; there is nothing left inside of me.

Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem–but I’m a writer on a serious deadline, and my editor is breathing down my neck for a romantic, Nicholas Sparks type love story. No pressure, right?

That’s how I find myself flying across the country to crash a wedding in the name of research, dress and heels stuffed into my small suitcase.

It should be the easiest book research ever. Drinking some free champagne, basking in the love of two strangers, and tapping into my romantic side. That will be a breeze. I’m a pro. I can handle this.

Until I mistakenly end up in the wrong hotel room, naked as the day I was born, with the sexiest human I have ever met staring me down, wondering what I’m doing taking a shower in his bathroom. I don’t think calling it research will get me out of this pickle.

We finally get to read Beck’s story. He was blind date number two from the first book, Three Blind Dates. I loved Beck in that book but sadly he didn’t get the girl, I hope he gets her this time! This light-hearted romance can be read as a standalone but would help you connect the dots if you read the first book in this series.

So now we continue with Beck’s story. He was the one who had a painful history. Guessing from his no alcoholic drinks lifestyle one can surmise that he is a recovering alcoholic and when you read further along the book, you find out what happened to him during the last six years. His dark past shaped his future and he is determined to make himself a better person. “Every step I take is forward, never backward”. He is that special guy who is not only blessed with good looks, but he’s also a great artist, a sweet romantic and one who will pull out all the stops to get his girl.  

Rylee is the focused and determined heroine, an author who needs an inspiration. She is smart, attractive and is prone to foot-in-mouth gaffes, a hot combo that will be Beck’s downfall. “Sometimes, you have to hold on to the things that tried to tear you down, because it’s good to be reminded why you’re going to succeed.”

This is a fast paced story written in dual points of view. Although the tone in this book is light-hearted, the main characters deal with some life changing issues and consequences. It is well balanced with a lot of hilarious banter amongst the characters that will tickle your funny bone, warm your heart and set fire to your knickers. Rylee and Beck’s story is the perfect follow up to that ugly cry book you just finished reading.



“What brings you to Key West, Beck?”

I feel like that’s a question I should have asked a while ago but with the whole naked hotel room exposure—which I have yet to tell my friends about—and the sweatshirt burial, we haven’t had a real chance to get to know each other. Not that I’m complaining all too much. What I know about Beck so far is that he’s a gentleman and likes to have a good time, even if that means torching a sweatshirt and sending it on it’s way.

There aren’t many people I know who would stand there, hand over heart, talking about the thread count of a sweatshirt while fake crying.

The corner of my lips pull up just from the image of Beck wiping “tears” from his eyes with the back of his index finger.

“Do you want the truth, or do you want a fabricated lie that will cause you to fall madly in love with me?”

Chuckling, I answer, “Both.”

“Fair enough.” Beck pushes his foot against the sand below us, sending the hammock into a relaxing swing. “Want the truth or the lie first?”

“Hmm, how about I guess which is which.”

“Ah, things are about to get exciting.” He chuckles and rubs his hands together. “Okay, reason number one.” He clears his throat. “I’m attending a wedding this coming weekend, a wedding I wasn’t invited to, but my friend begged me to attend because he wanted to bone his wife without children around. It doesn’t make sense, but hey, I’m a good friend so here I am.”

Errr, that’s eerily familiar. I swallow a little harder than expected. There is no way he’s crashing a wedding like me. That’s only something a desperate author does in order to find signs of love again. “Okay, reason number two.”

“My sister is getting married this weekend and I’m giving her away. Our dad passed away a few years ago from a heart attack, and even though we’d been estranged for two years, she asked if I would be a part of her wedding. So here I am.”

Silently he swings us, my mind whirling with what the truth could be. Both stories were told so effortlessly, so he’s either a really good liar, or some kind of con artist. I should be scared. I should go to my hotel room right now, wishing Beck a good night, but I don’t, because I’m intrigued by this man. Behind the good looks and intelligence, there’s something beneath the surface, something dark that makes understandable the age in his weathered eyes.

Because of that, I go with option number two. It seems the most plausible, because who really crashes weddings? Only crazed women with the tendency to sit in a bush with a notepad and pen and take notes while staring at couples and listening in on their conversations.

Research and all, it comes at a high price, like spikey branches to the tush.

“Hmm, I’m going to go with reason number two.”

He nods and says, “I knew you were going to say that, but you’re pretty little self is wrong. I don’t even have a sister.”

Stunned, I prop myself up as best as I can on the loose woven thread of the hammock and stare him down. “You’re here to crash someone’s wedding?”

He winces. “Uh, yeah, kind of.”

“Unbelievable.” I shake my head in disbelief and lie back down.

“Now before you judge me and give me a lecture about RSVPing—”

“I’m not judging you.” I turn toward Beck, the hammock making the shift slightly difficult. “I’m just a little . . . surprised.”

“I don’t plan on eating any food.” He bites his bottom lip. “That’s a lie. I plan on eating a lot, but hey, I’ll bring the party to the dance floor. If anything, I’m bringing them the gift of dance, so you can’t be mad at me for that.”

“I’m not mad.” I laugh, still surprised. “I’m just trying to comprehend this.” Looking him square in the eyes, I say, “I’m here crashing a wedding as well.”

This causes Beck to sit up, his brawny chest straining the fabric of his shirt. He intently studies me, his eyes flitting back and forth until he finally asks, “You’re serious? You’re really crashing a wedding?”

I press my lips together and nod.

A sharp laugh escapes Beck as he lies down on the hammock and sends our swing into more of a frenzied movement. “I’m just going to assume, given our luck of baby puke, naked encounters—”

“I knew you saw boobs.”

“I didn’t see . . . ah hell, what’s the point? I totally saw your tits and fuck, woman, they’re hot.” I blush . . . horrendously, my face heating up along with every vein in my body. “But like I was saying, with our luck, we’re going to the same wedding.”

Clearing my throat, trying to move past the part where Beck just made my nipples harden and pop out like turkey thermometers, I lamely say, “Yeah, that would be our luck.”

“Let me guess, wedding is on Saturday at The Hemingway House.”

Cue another rush of heat to eclipse my body. “The one and only.”

He nods and lies there silently for a second before saying, “So what you’re telling me is that I have a date for the wedding Saturday night.”

Not expecting him to say that, I laugh out loud and for some reason say, “I’m wearing teal, in case you want to match and take couple pictures. You know, might as well do the whole couple thing up, right?”

This garners, a deep, low, rumble of a laugh from Beck. “Thank God I packed grey pants with a white button-down. There won’t be any kind of clashing in those couple photos.”

“Nope, not even in the slightest.”



Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed revisiting Barrington where there’s never a dull moment! And the cameo appearance of Catherine’s sister, Harper, who started the ball rolling and Taylor who had to stop it, was a real treat. White Knight can be read as a standalone; however, it wouldn’t go amiss if you read King of Code first since you’ll have a better understanding as to why the town’s inhabitants are in such a pickle. Saying that, Reiss has written this love story in such a way that with little effort and even less confusion, this second chance romance can be enjoyed on its own. Even though we’ve seen quite a few poor-boy-falls-for-rich-girl romances around of late, Reiss’ style of writing lifts this novella way above this category. No argument about it; she gave me just the right amount of angst, didn’t exaggerate the bedroom scenes but when the occasion arose…, no pun intended, her idiomatic prose kicked in and is as always, impressive.

I was delighted that one of the main features of the story became a touching name given to Catherine Barrington by the male protagonist because it was hers to wear proudly. Its significance made smile no end since it revolves around a couple of very amusing scenes. Listen guys, you can’t possibly not love her. To my mind, Reiss exerted herself with the character development of her female protagonist. You see, Catherine’s heart is a very delicate one, figuratively speaking of course. Everyone who knows her, have had to watch a series of unfortunate events occur while she’s suffered in silence. So busy trying to please and make life a better place for those involved means her feelings have been abandoned. Or have they?

Christopher Carmichael left his past behind for reasons to be divulged. I truly believe that circumstances made him stronger and the story wouldn’t have panned out as it did if Reiss had chosen another route for him. What happened was heartbreaking and I didn’t like it one bit; nonetheless, now he has the chance to ferret out the whys and wherefores of certain actions. An unusual storyline as situations are reversed in the present, what I enjoyed more was the back and forth from Christopher and Catherine’s youth to today. Observing how they’d changed over the years, how written words from the past would catch up on them, and learning forgiveness and trying to forget, pulled on my heartstrings.

I seemed to finish the book in no time and to be quite honest, would have happily carried on reading. I thought the ending was a tad rushed though, but probably because I wanted more of these two beautiful people. Other than this small detail, I couldn’t find fault in the story and highly recommend it. Bravo Reiss!

Just when you’re lead to believe that an author can’t possibly write a book any better than their previous, you discover their latest release is better than anything else they have ever created. I don’t know how the author keeps on pulling it out of the bag.

“You’re the love of my life, Dove. It’s always been you. From the first moment I saw you at the fair, I was a goner.”

‘This man…he ruins me. Every word. Every look. Every touch.’

A large part of each book this author writes is filled with information about a trade or career this author has so clearly researched. In Ruin it’s boxing. I can’t comprehend how much research it took, but it’s clear for all to see that said research was not done with a lacklustre approach, quite the opposite, in fact. This author uses family as a key factor in all of her books. To the character they are emotional stability, a port in a storm, and an unending source of unconditional love and support.

‘…remind me of how good things used to be between us. How hot we used to be for each other. How amazing he always made me feel. How easy things between us had been back when we were younger and in love.

Now, nothing’s easy when it comes to Zeus and me.’

Both Zeus and Cam sacrifice so much for their families. Even to the point of sacrificing themselves in certain ways. Ruin is a book that is translatable to many of us. Each reader can and will take something different out of it. It’s not an easy book to put down. Like so many other books penned this author; they are personality driven reads. The toing and froing, back and forth between two characters who clearly had a past and a combustible relationship. More water under the bridge than could fill the River Thames, Zeus and Cam shared many firsts together and their history has a complexity to it that very few authors could weave together in a convincing way. Like the characters, I kept asking myself how someone lets go of pain and anger of something they believed to be true, but is in fact not what they believed it to be.

‘Life happens the way it’s meant to. And I was never supposed to be with Zeus for life.

I might have thought that he was the love of my life. And I can’t deny that I still have feelings for him.’

‘…He’s my first love, so I’m always going to have an emotional attachment to him.

But, beyond that, there’s nothing more.

Zeus and I were over a long time ago.’

Boxing is Zeus’ passion and he’s very good at it, but I always got the feeling that there was some guilt there over his chosen profession and the sacrifices he has made for it.

“Letting you go was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.” His voice is rough. “Harder than watching my mother’s body being lowered into the grave. I loved you so much, Dove. I still do. I’ve never stopped loving you. And I’ve spent the last five years missing you.”

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how much that I adore when this author throws a character or two from a previous book into the mix. If only a small part, it’s nice to hear familiar names. As a reader who has read a few of this author’s books, I’m so glad I took a jump into this one. It’s full of heart.

Release Blitz :: Charming Hannah by Kristen Proby


Charming Hannah by Kristen Proby
Publication Date: February 27th, 2018


From New York Times Bestselling author, Kristen Proby, comes the first in an all-new trilogy in her beloved Big Sky Series!

Hannah Malone loves her new town. Despite living in Cunningham Falls for five years, she’s still considered a “move in” by most of the locals, and that doesn’t bother her in the least. She’s the “new girl”, and she hasn’t regretted it for one day. This town is her sanctuary. Her home. The one place she finally fits in and feels safe after a lifetime of being different and running from the memories and a past so far away it can’t haunt her anymore.

As the newly appointed police chief, Brad Hull has the responsibility to keep his citizens safe and to maintain order. His roots in this town are deep—five generations deep, to be exact. Cunningham Falls, Montana is his town, and being a cop and protecting what’s his is his passion. Everything’s running like clockwork until a sassy redheaded doctor moves in and disrupts the order—and Brad’s focus.

She’s not just beautiful, funny, and strong. Hannah’s everything he’s been looking for in a woman. The chemistry is undeniable, and the heat in the bedroom is off the charts. Brad knew the minute he met Hannah that she was the one for him. He’s tenacious in his pursuit of her. But when the past catches up with Hannah, will Brad be able to protect her and their hearts?

Meet Kristen:

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
