Audition is a romantic suspense spinoff from the North Security Series, absolutely my favourite trilogy this year. Now it’s Liam North’s brother, Joshua’s turn to tell his story. In previous books, I loved the rapport these two reserved guys had, especially Josh’s on-the-job seriousness while bodyguarding Liam’s lady. Also, there was something in the air with him and Bethany. Yep, Warren teased her readers and has now delivered a readworthy standalone with co-writer, Amelia Wilde.

‘Bethany is an open book, with all her defiance and sadness and fight right there under the surface.’

I’m a great fan of Warren’s storytelling, so I was curious to see how it would develop with this new writing duo. I can’t say I saw a noticeable difference. The plot flows at a steady pace, the banter’s as good as ever; however, there’s more backstory than usual. Josh and Bethany’s stories could easily have been a duet and I’m eternally grateful it wasn’t. There was never a moment when I felt like I was missing any of their protagonists’ personal details.

‘The Josh I knew five years ago never would have done this. He would have broken before he bent.’

Wow, it’s totally understandable that Josh has too much emotional baggage to have a relationship. Making it virtually impossible for anyone to get close to him, he’s the first one to admit that his heart is out of bounds. So the question I asked myself was would Bethany be able to break through his walls without losing him forever. And will Josh give in to the one and only woman who stirs his emotions? The signs of sexual tension simmer off the pages; however, taking the next step could have dire consequences.

‘We belong to different worlds. His is sharp enough to cut me. Mine is already in pieces.’

Only a few people close to both of them are aware that their scars run deep, how utterly hopeless and tragic their pasts were. And although it does take a while for Josh to open up to Bethany, she can see through him. I loved her tenacious and ambitious persona; her inner strength and will to survive moulded her into the woman she is today. On the other hand, Josh is so obstinate, I didn’t know whether to throttle or hug him! But one thing is for sure, he will put his life on the line to protect her.

“It’s you. You’re the one she dreams about.”

We meet up with Bethany’s infamous brother and sweet but rather peculiar grandmother again…The advice she gives to her granddaughter not only had an impact on me, but also made me smile. Selfishly thinking, I would have liked to have learnt a tad more about her brother’s dirty business, an individual who’s beyond vengeful and the choreographer. Snippets of the performing arts trivia at the beginning of every chapter was a welcome addition, and if you like angsty slow-burn romances, this book is for you! Bravo to the authors!

“Whatever’s troubling you, it’ll look better in daylight. Sleep, child. Don’t fight your demons in the dark.”

I open the door, expecting to see a couple of rough-hewn bastards fighting or training. They might even take a swing at me. We’re all a bunch of army bastards, more comfortable using our fists than our words.
Instead I’m struck by the sight of a body in motion, but not in violence.She’s dancing. Grace. Strength. And completely inappropriate to this place—desire. It’s nothing so base as tits and ass, though I’m sure hers are lovely. No, it’s the sweep of her calf and the indent at her waist. The lift of her chin.

I could not be more shocked if I had been punched. Or shot.

It feels a little bit like being dunked in lava, watching her dance. I’m immobile in the doorframe of the warehouse. My sanity is one step behind me, utterly gone. I’m seeing visions. She can’t be real. I don’t even want her to be real. This kind of beauty doesn’t belong in the goddamn gutter. A pale pink leotard against the dinge-dark hollow. Satin ballet shoes pushing into the dirt. Slowly, very slowly, my sluggish mind searches the perimeter. Alone. We’re alone. If anyone had wanted to shoot me, they’d have had plenty of time. An eternity while I’d been staring.

Her spin slows, like a top that’s run out of momentum. Dark eyes meet mine. Surprise. A flash of something else—anger. She drops to flat feet. No longer a goddess, a blur. She becomes a woman. “No,” she says. Then again, “No,” with such force I glance behind me in case someone’s charging at her wielding a knife. The shipyard is empty. It’s only my company she’s objecting to.

Well, you can’t fault her for taste.

“Normally I have to say something for women to hate me,” I say, strolling into the warehouse, pretending my heart doesn’t thud at the sight of her lithe body. Pretending my cock isn’t a breath away from rock-hard. “I have to say something about their tits or their ass.”

Her eyes narrow, but she doesn’t seem particularly shocked by my crude language. No, she wouldn’t be. Not in this place. She would have heard much worse. “I told him no more guards.”

“You told who?”

“Who else?” she says. “Your boss.”

My boss? I work for the US government. My job is to drive around godforsaken deserts and pray I don’t get blown up by a bomb buried underground. If I play my cards right, I might move into special operations. That’s what was implied before I went on leave. Go along with what Caleb Lewis offers. Collect information. Report back.

It’s a chance to be somewhere other than the bottom rung. Maybe the only chance I’ll ever get. Which means I have no business being interested in this girl. She probably isn’t even eighteen. “My boss,” I repeat, my voice flat.

“Isn’t that why you’re here? To guard me?”

“Why don’t we do this—you dance again. I’ll stand here, but if anyone attacks you, I’ll just let them have at it. No bodyguards for you.”

She’s not amused. “The guards aren’t there to protect me. You’re here to keep me in the warehouse or keep me at home. Make sure I don’t wander away. Make sure I don’t talk to anyone.”

“You’re talking to me.”

“You tell Caleb we had a deal. And it doesn’t include some—” Her narrowed gaze sweeps down my body, as if she’s only now noticed that I have a body. “Some overmuscled asshole on steroids.”

I put my hand over my chest. “Direct hit. I’m wounded you think I’d resort to steroids. These muscles were earned the old-fashioned way, thank you very much.”

She snorts, which somehow sounds feminine and delicate. “I’m sure you do much worse things than steroids. And there is no way, absolutely no way, that you’re going to be my new guard, so tell Caleb he can forget it.”

“Would it put your mind at ease to know he didn’t send me?” Though I’m curious how he’s connected to her. We enlisted at the same time. Went through basic at the same time. We’ve never been close, really. When we both had leave, I was surprised he offered for me to hang out with him in New Orleans. I accepted because I have nowhere else to go. At the time I had no idea that I’d be approached by some special department to gather intel for them. Doesn’t take a genius to figure out Caleb’s into some bad shit.

“Right,” she says, unconvinced. “So you’re standing in the one warehouse that doesn’t contain anything illegal because…?”

“Total coincidence. I was looking for the illegal stuff.” Which means I have no business staying to chat with this woman, no matter how compelling she looks with that notch between her eyebrows. She looks goddamn fierce. “Honestly.”

A roll of her eyes. “Tell my brother he doesn’t need to waste time and energy watching me. I’m staying out of trouble.”

Her brother. Jesus. If she’s Caleb Lewis’s sister, then she’s not staying in trouble. It won’t be a clean shot that brings him down. It’ll be a grenade launcher that hits him—metaphorically speaking. Or literally speaking. Everyone in his vicinity will end up in jail or dead. That’s inevitable.

And she’s right here.

SWEET VENGEANCE by Danielle Norman is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing Danielle Norman’s all-new contemporary romance, SWEET VENGEANCE


The handoff of an orchid colored card was all it took to call the Iron Ladies, a whisper network of women.

They specialized in bringing abusive men to their knees.

Men who abused women and abused power, men like the Camden’s.

Sunday Prescott was a tech goddess, cyber espionage was her specialty.

During her latest assignment, she uncovered more than she ever hoped for: Bo Camden.

He was just like his father, right?

But the butterflies in her stomach told her something different. And the touch of his lips left her breathless.

She was torn between sleeping with the enemy or getting vengeance…Sweet Vengeance.

It’s been quite a while since I took the time to sit and read a mystery romance, and this one had just the right amount of ingredients to keep me chomping at the bit until the well-written end.

Sunday and Bo, two sides of the same coin. Both doing the right thing for their own reasons.

The story of Sunday and her best friends was chock full of the things you’d find in any real friendship. Calling one another out on their BS, being just one of those things.

Bo, a man looking out for his mum. After all, what would any child do if they discovered something like that out? Well, I’d do exactly what he does and darn the consequences.

Intrigue, dishonesty, romance, kick-butt friends; what more could a reader want.

“Mr. Camden, they’re boarding your flight.” Bo looked up at the woman who’d helped him earlier.”Thank you.” He grabbed his carry-on and headed toward his gate. When he arrived, most of the area had already cleared out. He scanned his boarding pass and headed down the gangway.

“Welcome aboard,” a flight attendant greeted him.

“Thank you.”

When he saw who was sitting in two d, against the window where she would be locked in by him once he sat, he smiled. This flight was going to be interesting.

Sunday saw him and ducked as if that could possibly hide her. Finding entirely too much joy in her rather pathetic attempt, he stowed his carry-on and took his seat. “Fancy seeing you here.”

“What the hell? I thought you were headed to New York.”

“Yeah, and I thought that my dad was going to New York so I invited you along, guess you were laughing at me the entire time.”

“No. After you left, I went to book my flight for New York, but before I did, I wanted to find out what time your dad arrived so I checked the executive airport and discovered that he was going to the Caymans instead.”

“You could have called me and let me know.”

“How? I only know you as the crazy stalker who followed me home. I don’t exactly have your cell number.” Sunday looked smug.

“Really? You can find my dad’s flight times, don’t tell me that you couldn’t have found my number.” Bo smiled wider. Mental hash mark, one to him. “By the way, do you even know where you’re going once you get on the island?”

Sunday raised one brow in challenge. “If I can find a flight plan, then I can find a reservation.”

“Yet not a cell phone number,” Bo mumbled.

“It wasn’t intentional. Besides, why are you bitching? Obviously, you lied about New York because you’re on this flight too. And to answer your other question, I’m going to the Ritz.”

“I’m only on this flight because I saw you coming through TSA and texted my mom to let her know that you would be out of town with me in New York. She’s who told me you were going to the Caymans.”

“Well, aren’t you a regular Sherlock Holmes.”

“Listen, I know that we got off on the wrong foot, let’s start over.” Bo held out one hand. “Truce?”

Sunday stared at it and debated. “Sure, now because you want it? I tried this yesterday.”

“You did, and I acted like an ass. Truce or not?”

“Fine, truce.” Sunday shook on it.

“So, why PI work?” Bo turned in his seat so that he could get a better view of Sunday.

“It wasn’t originally what I wanted, but I met the other three my third year of college and we became best friends. Olivia and Adeline were studying criminal justice, Melanie was working on a degree in psychology, and I was studying cyber forensics.”

“Does Melanie analyze the clients, watch for body language and stuff like that?” Bo asked, totally enthralled.

“Sort of, Mel studies their patterns and habits. You know, like a profiler.”

“That’s kind of cool. Tell me about cyber forensics. What is that like?”

“Have you ever watched a movie where they confiscate someone’s computer?”

“Of course.”

“It is a cyber forensics team that goes through the hard drive and can recover, rebuild, or decipher everything that device has done.”

“And that’s something you like to do?” Bo questioned.

“It is. I can get lost behind a computer.”

“I like that, I used to like my job as well.” Bo leaned back.

He couldn’t get over how relaxed he felt with her, the two of them just talking. All it took was calling a truce then in a blink of an eye they went from enemies to . . . what . . . what were they?

“You don’t like your job anymore?” Sunday appeared genuinely concerned.

“When you spend all your time watching what your own father is doing and making sure that he isn’t trying to screw the company or your mother over, it sort of takes the fun out of it.”

Sunday placed one hand on top of his. “I hate this for you. You should be able to trust your parents more than anyone else.”

“Oh, I trust my mom. She’d do anything for me.”

Bo and Sunday fell quiet as the flight attendant came to a stop next to them. Her smile was warm as she glanced between them before asking, “Would you folks like a mimosa?”

“Sure, thank you.” Sunday accepted her drink first, and then Bo took his from the attendant.

“A toast?”

Sunday smiled and lifted her glass. “Here’s to getting lucky in the Caymans.”

“Okay, I guess that I can drink to that.” Bo chuckled.

“Oh, I didn’t mean like lucky as in lucky, lucky. I meant as in getting lucky and getting exactly what we need for your mother.”

“Okay, sure. I’m good either way.” Bo clinked his glass to Sunday’s.

“Oh, you shush.”

Regardless of the genre, Hoover’s storytelling captivates and Regretting You is without exception. It’s one of those books that mums and teenager daughters alike have to read, emotions have not been suppressed, no-one is spared, not even the reader. Here, the author shows us how a family copes with grief, how they face each day. But more importantly, how a mother-daughter relationship is affected not just by the loss of a loved one which in itself is tragic, but by actions. Of course, in Hoover fashion, something of consequence is always held back.

I saw what was coming from afar so when the bomb dropped, I wasn’t floored as much as I would have liked. This; however, didn’t spoil my reading enjoyment in the slightest. I really liked how Colleen made me question Clara’s mother’s stance regarding certain fragile issues. And although being protective of our children should be the most natural thing in the world, here I felt it did more harm than good. Yet I don’t think any parent would ever be mentally prepared to help their child navigate what Clara had to without making mistakes.

‘I’ve been trying to hide my emotions from Clara. Not the grief. The grief is natural. I don’t mind being sad in front of her. But I don’t want her to sense my anger.’

I really and truly liked Morgan. Although she’s having trouble adapting, her inner strength, selflessness and loving persona is just as important to the story as is her daughter’s rebellion. Hmm…I can’t tell you what Clara did since it’s a spoiler and a half…just read the book and you’ll find out! One thing is for sure, all Morgan wants is the best for her. Also, an almighty breakdown in communication doesn’t help matters, causing tempers and patience to fray.

‘But who needs clues when you don’t even realize you’re supposed to be playing detective?’

Not surprisingly, discovering the truth so close to home adds to more heartbreak. Morgan’s not alone in her despair, and you’ll see why she has no wish to clarify her daughter’s confusion, something another character and I weren’t completely in agreement with. It’s not easy to read and I’m still wondering if I’d do the same. Definitely food for thought, definitely courageous on her part and probably the only way she’d find closure.

“I’m not here to make you feel better. I’m on the same roller coaster you are.”

Clara’s led a sheltered life. All of a sudden, it all comes tumbling down and finding solace in someone who understood her made me sigh with relief. Sometimes, reasoning with teens is complicated, especially when those around them have their own problems. Clara jumps to conclusions, has infantile tantrums which I found a tad peculiar, seeing as she’s a mature sixteen-year-old. On the whole, she’s a lovely gal needing guidance at a tough time in her young life.

“…I’m learning that sometimes you have to walk away from the fight in order to win it.”

Morgan’s past and the mother/daughter narratives virtually run parallel to each other. It’s extremely well done, not at all convoluted and essentially gave their stories a lifelike feel. Two more characters won me over in no time. One of them had me grabbing for a tissue, making me want to jump into my Kindle and hug them to bits, the other got me smiling to myself. Little-big details make this story special. Heartbreaking, uplifting and inspirational, the ending was more than satisfactory. Bravo CH!

RELEASE BOOST ~ in the LIGHT of day by KA Graham

It’s release boost day for KA Graham’s psychological dark romance, IN THE LIGHT OF DAY. And we’re also delighted to be sharing Emma-Louise’s 5-star review, a book she chose for one of her best 2019 reads!

There’s darkness in all of us.

Micah
I’m a nobody. An outcast. A shadow. I never aligned with the jocks and their fake barbie girlfriends, not that I wanted to. Being invisible worked for me until he showed up.

He showed me a path I never intended to walk, and I slid into his life easily. Too easily.  Now that the devil has embraced me, I crave the heat of his flames.

Quinn
She doesn’t think I see her. She’s wrong. She’s all I see. My dark angel. We’re more alike than she could ever imagine. Soon I will make her mine.

I was always good at playing the part of the jock that everyone worships. In reality, I’m the devil with no remorse. It’s time to free my soul and rid myself of the rodents.

Holy bouncing balls! What in the world kind of crazy did I just read? For the sheer genius of creativity, I can’t not reward this one five stars.

Any of us have known or been the odd one out. The one person that is victimised for being different. Micah is that person. She stands out and rises above the queen bees of the town. This, of course, painted a large target on her butt. Micah deals with real-world issues. Her coping mechanisms are ones that anyone with these afflictions would understand.

Quinn is an oddball, a true wolf in sheep’s clothing. Some of his actions are ones that I cannot condone and often felt like I could condemn him for them; however, I will state this. Those of us who live by normal laws wouldn’t do it but that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t want to in the deepest recesses of our mind.

Together Micah and Quinn make sense; they balance each other out. Strange as it may seem they often complement one another.

Through some of the weirdest events I’ve ever read, we go through a journey almost reminiscent of a Quentin Tarantino movie, and this isn’t a bad thing, not at all. It left me scratching my head and laughing maniacally. Curious? I double dare you to give this one a shot. Tag, you’re it!!!

Love is a battlefield, and divorce attorney Sadie Howard is entrenched on the frontlines. She thought she might have met the right man once, but he was a career military guy who got shipped overseas and left her heart on the tarmac. These days, the only commitment Sadie wants is the one she’s made to her Denver law practice.

Combat photographer Roman Dvornakov is back. Fresh out of the U.S. Army, he’s using family connections to snap photos at a few weddings while he builds his civilian photography practice. After all he’s captured on film, a few posed wedding shots should be a cakewalk. Seeing so much death through the camera lens, he’s now ready to build something worth living for. A thriving photography business, definitely. But he’s certain his new mission also includes Sadie, the girl who slipped away.

Sadie isn’t convinced, and she’s not willing to open her heart anytime soon. Besides, she’s got a high-profile divorce case taking up all her attention.
