Review of Finding Home by Ann Vaughn

Finding Home

Colt Harris wasn't on the hunt for love when he looked up from his lunch when he spotted Sarah. As cliched as it was, time stood still - all he could see was her. Hearing her laugh sealed his fate; he knew his life was about to change.

Sarah Sauter was used to being alone. She lost her parents when he was eighteen and after a really bad love affair, had given up in ever finding love. Since then, her life had been all about simply surviving. Little did she know that when she went to lunch with her co-workers, she would have a chance encounter with a man who would literally turn her world upside down.

When Colt steps into Sarah's life, he finds that things with her aren't exactly as they appear to be. Secrets hidden deep in her last begin to surface, dropping Colt and Sarah in the middle if a nearly twenty-seven year old mystery. It will take all of Colt's strength, patience and resolve Finding Home for Sarah.

Review by Tabitha:

I really didn't think going into this book there was any way it could be as good or better than Long Way Home. Boy, was I mistaken. While there is no way I could pick over the other as my favorite, I truly am in love with Finding Home. There is just something about the take charge alpha side of Colt that is so mesmerizing. And then we have the sweetest girl in the whole world and loving about Sarah. The whole story is captivating. Colt has a strength in him and need to protect Sarah that is uncanny. He isn't willing to give up and no matter how hard Sarah tries to run, he just won't give up. Sarah and Colt together are an unstoppable force and have a love that everyone wants to have. Sarah and Colt both are wonderful characters and everything that happens they draw on each other for strength and ultimately love. Sometimes love really does conquer all. At least it definitely is the case for this book! I strongly recommend this book and every other one of Ann Vaughn's books. She is beyond amazing! 
I give this book a million 5 AMAZEBALLS stars.

About  the Author:

Ann Vaughn is a Native Texan now living in Oklahoma. She's been writing since the seventh grade (many MANY moons ago) when she and her friends were obsessed with the Sweet Valley High series. Back then, access to books wasn't as easy as it is now, so to tide her over between SVH releases, she began writing her own, Texas versions of SVH, full of lots of Texas Friday Night Lights and pitfalls and perils of teenage life in the 80s. Writing has always been a comfort and a release for her, though she never expected to be published. It wasn't until a conversation with her husband about the rise of eBooks that she decided to try her hand at self-publishing. It was scary and exciting and ever since the release of her first book, Long Way Home on August 7, 2013 she has been on a wild roller coaster ride that she wouldn't trade for the world.

Cover Reveal for This Regret by Victoria Ashley

This regret HD ebook cover
Cover by CT Cover Creations

Phoenix has been stumbling through life since her brother Adric's tragic death but after eight years, she is finally piecing what remains together. She has a nice apartment, a steady job and not to mention a fresh new 'relationship' with her childhood friend, Kade Haze. He's the sexy boy next door that she never even dreamed of falling for, but can’t seem to stop the pull she feels toward him.
Just when life began to make sense again and a feeling of normalcy was on the horizon, Phoenix's carefully constructed walls come crashing down. 
When walking into the tattoo shop one day, the last thing that she’s expecting to see is Kellan Haze, Adric’s best friend that no one has seen or heard from since the day that they found her brother’s body. He’s nothing as she remembers him as a child, with his wild messy hair, tattoos that cover most of his undeniably sexy body and eyes so intense that it makes her legs quiver with one look. The one thing that even she can’t deny is the instant rush that she feels just by being in his presence.
But how can you choose between love and lust when one of these hold a dark secret, one that can crush your world to pieces and leave you gasping for air. Who can you trust when your mind is pulling you in two different directions and your heart has to choose for you?
The Haze brothers are sexy, daring and possibly . . . dangerous.
This Regret is a story of love, lust, betrayal and danger with an ending that no one saw coming.
      I sit there fighting to catch my breath as I watch him run his hands over his face before running his fingers through his hair, tugging it.
“That’s all I’ll ever be to you, isn’t it? Adric’s little sister,” I say stiffly. “I’m not a child anymore and I have taken more pain than you know. You think you’ve been hurting over the years, well fuck you Kellan because I’ve been hurting worse.” I stand up from the desk and pull my skirt down. I’m in so much heartache right now, especially after getting to feel those lips on mine, just to take the feeling away and never give it again. It hurts like hell, but I refuse to show it. “Oh and don’t ever kiss me again. I don’t think your brother would like his lips to be where yours has been.”
The look on his face is as if I’ve just slapped him.  It’s the same look that Kade had given me when I called him by his brother’s name. I don’t even know why I just said what I said. Maybe I want to hurt him just as bad as he has hurt me over the years.
He rubs a hand over his mouth and looks me in the eye. “You’re right. I don’t think he would like that either.” He stares me in the eyes while walking over to stand in front of me. His eyes trail down to my lips as he speaks again. “But I think I fucking hate his lips on yours more.”
Before I can speak, his lips crush mine again as he backs me up against the wall. This time he doesn’t even ask for entrance, he just takes it. He places his hand on my chin and pushes my head back, causing me to gasp as he slips his tongue into my mouth. His tongue hungrily caresses mine and this time, I feel the coolness of the steel in his mouth as he swirls his tongue around mine, before sucking it into his mouth. “Fuck the rules and fuck what Kade wants. Here’s to making this day better. Today, you’re mine.”
I look at his mouth as he runs his tongue over his lip and looks me in the eye. “Kellan, you don’t have to-“
“Come with me,” he breathes. “I have places that I want to take you.”
His Adams apple bobs as he looks at me waiting for a response. “What about the party and your family?”
“Screw the party, Phoenix. This day is about you and being sure that you never have to suffer on this day again. Give me a chance to change your mind.”
He looks at me pleadingly and I can’t help but to give in. A part of me doesn’t even care where he’s taking me as long as I’m with him. “Okay, take me anywhere you want.”
I hope this is the right decision or I’m in for a world of hurt.

Just Fall
by Annica Rossi

Average rating of 4.75 stars out of 5!

How far would you go to save everything?

Life hadn’t dealt Lauren St. John a fair hand, yet she considered herself lucky to be living on the majestic shores of Lake Michigan running the business her parents worked their whole lives to create... Until now.

Facing the possibility of losing The Grandview Inn and her relationship with Jake Kennedy, the man she vowed to marry, “Lo” is desperate to hold on.

In the middle of her anguish, the unexpected arrival of longtime
guests, Tom and Mary Blackwell, seems like a welcome relief, but just when she thinks things couldn’t get any worse, she discovers they’ve brought along an unwelcome ghost from her past.

Enter the dangerously seductive Parker Blackwell, renowned poker player and notorious bad boy, with a propensity for kinky sex.

Seven summers ago, the gauntlet was thrown down from the moment Lo and Parker laid eyes on each other. Too young to realize the gravity of their connection, their friendship grew until a series of tragic events began to unfold, and Parker mysteriously disappeared, leaving Lo heartbroken and unwilling to forgive.

Grown up now, and suddenly forced to confront their unresolved feelings and undeniably explosive sexual attraction, the situation intensifies into an enticing and comical game of “it’s your move”. But when Parker raises the stakes too high will Lo put herself on the line to save everything she’s ever known?

Book is priced for only .99$!!!!

This book was a great quick read. It's an erotic/contemporary romance and is approximately 36,000 words. It's part one in a series. Annica Rossi, is a brand new indie author. She really hit it out of the park with her debut novella.

In the story Lauren St. John (Lo) is struggling to keep The Grandveiw Inn open. She is dating Jake Kennedy but we see very little of him in the story. Parker Blackwell shows up at the Grandview Inn with his Aunt and Uncle. Sparks fly between Parker and Lo. Parker has been a player, having many different girls and never more than once. He knows Lo from their childhood. For him Lo is it, he just has to make Lo realize it.

For some of the story Lo is dating Jake. There is a cheating in the story but it didn't bother me because Jake seems to be such a minor character and the chemistry between Lo and Parker is so strong. There are some great steamy scenes between Lo and Parker.

The book ends with Lo going off to try to save The Grandview Inn. I knew starting the story that it was a series and expected a cliffhanger but this ending leaves you wondering what will happen next. Will she save The Grandview Inn? Will Lo and Parker be together? I can't wait to read more.

I’m not normally attracted to bad boys, and he was the perfect
specimen, but there was an air of confidence about him that came from more
than just his stunning good looks, and it beckoned me to investigate. He
was picture perfect in every way…but as you know looks can be deceiving.

As I began to recover from my momentary brain lapse vague memories began
to surface in the back of my mind. I couldn't put my finger on it, but
there was something very familiar about those dimples…

Review for Ancient Hunger: A Modern Mythos by Arden Aoide

Ancient Hunger:  A Modern Mythos
By: Arden Aoide


Warning: This book has adult themes. Explicit sex of several varieties, consensual and not, and unfathomable neglect. Sometimes simultaneously. 

He loves her.

He wants to make that clear. 

He will love her until the sun swallows the Earth or burns out entirely.

He is very patient.

He only wants to keep her safe.

Even from herself. 

Especially from herself.

Because he knows what is best for her.

Because he loves her.

Ancient Hunger is an erotic urban fantasy soaked in the blood of a southern gothic romance.

Review by Gia: 
Wow!  This was a good book.  It's an interesting story.  It a has a fresh new view on some paranormal aspects.
After Tristan breaks up with her boyfriend Jason, she cuts her hair and go to get a tattoo.  She has an instant connection with Enzu, her tattoo artist.  Enzu is a Incubus.  The sex scene between Tristan and Enzu are super steamy. 
In this book we also meet Li and Naram, who have a relationship with Iltani.  We also get Irra and Nina.  I not sure if Irra is plain crazy or just so in love with Nina that it drives him crazy.
Ancient Hunger, has great charcaters and a great story line.  I would definitely read more about them.  You will not be disappointed.

STRINGS (Book 1):

Amazon US: http://amzn.to/12xqfiM

WARNING: STRINGS is not suitable for slut shamers, uptight stone throwers, Holier-Than-Thou prudes, humorless virgins, persons with chronic neck or back pain, pearl-clutching bitties, those who disparage crude humor or vulgarity in their many forms, closed-minded people with sticks up their asses, or anyone under the age of 18. The vile, base language and shocking, unholy sexual acts contained herein are not condoned by anyone with a lick of sense and should certainly not be reproduced without proper training and protection. The potty-mouthed and perpetually horny "heroine" (the term is used loosely) of this book does not resemble a normal, well-adjusted, or remotely believable person in any way, shape, or form. The author acknowledges that the characters in this book are shallow and two-dimensional; the plot is both ridiculous and insipid. She makes no apologies for any of it.

* Readers are strongly advised to wear latex gloves whilst reading to minimize contamination risks.

Free-spirited musician Letty Dillinger adheres to a strict, "no strings attached" policy when it comes to men. After a wild night of unabashed sex in a fancy hotel room, she never expects to see the adventurous stud she dubs "Shades" again. When her all-girl rock trio books a tour at the last minute as the opening act for their archenemies, Letty's shocked to discover she knows the competition's new lead singer. Intimately. Shades is no longer a one-night stand. Now he's the guy she has to one-up on stage every night for the sake of her career.

Sharing close quarters on a bus with her sexy nemesis and his bad-boy buddies puts Letty's Golden Rule to the test. On this tour, guitar strings aren't the only things being played. And when heartstrings are pulled too hard, they're bound to snap sooner or later.

BEATS (Book 2):

WARNING: BEATS is specially formulated for horn dogs, porn oglers, smut peddlers, BDSM junkies, M/M and M/M/F addicts, DP dabblers, body modification connoisseurs, and lovers of A2M backdoor sexy times. If you don't fall into these categories, can't stomach hot man-on-man action, or if you have no idea what the above acronyms mean, please back away from BEATS now. This isn't the book you're looking for. Failure to heed this warning could inadvertently throw unauthorized users into a persistent vegetative state, or at the very least, require administration of a defibrillator to the chest and/or groin area. Nobody wants that.

For months, shy drummer Jinx Hardwick has been silently crushing on her tall, dark, and scary bandmate, Toombs Badcock. Drawn to his frightening ink and scars, she yearns to uncover the shadowy secrets lurking behind his silver eyes, but Jinx is too intimidated to even look at him, let alone talk to him. When she stumbles upon Toombs and their manipulative lead guitarist Rax in a compromising position, Jinx realizes her chances of winning Toombs's heart aren't just a long shot--they're nonexistent. To make matters worse, Jinx's family needs her at home. She's about to back away fr
om it all--Toombs, the band, her dreams of fame and fortune--when Rax makes her an offer she can't refuse: a no-holds-barred night alone with Toombs. There's one small catch. She has to go through Rax to get it.


NOCTURNES contains 511 F-bombs, 81 well-endowed male chickens, 65 girl kitties, 58 Richard the Lessers, 10 C-U-Next-Tuesdays, and a plethora of other colorful words and phrases that would deafen your virginal mother's ears and make her bust out her "Shame on you!" finger. If you've been tuned in since the beginning of the Hard Rock Harlots series, you know the drill. The sex is extreme, the language is graphic, and the story is over the top. Prudes and under 18s need not apply.

WARNING: NOCTURNES addresses serious topics such as alcoholism, prostitution, and cheating. If you're looking for a barrel of laughs or sunshine and rainbows, this is NOT the book for you.

Rax Wrathbone is the dirty rock star you love to hate. The filthy fantasy slithering through your bed sheets. The serpent in your lady garden. The snake bite in your panties that keeps you sweating all night. He. Is. Sex.

And he's no good. For anyone.

After a nasty breakup with his best friend and their band's drummer, Rax is flying solo for the first time in years. Who needs the drama of commitment when the line for your humping booth spans three city blocks? No, groupies and liquor are far finer company than relationships, and they don't leave bruises after they've had their way with you. At least not lasting ones.

Rax's new adventures as an alcoholic, guitar-slashing one-man show are going along swimmingly until the only woman who's ever brought him to his knees shimmies down a pole back into his life. Eve doesn't abide excessive drinking, she has sex with strangers for a living, and she can't remember Rax's name to save her life.

She's perfect in every way.

Now, if he could just get sober long enough to forget his past and convince Eve he's worthy of her future
