What If (4 STARS) by Bayli Lane Review Tour

Synopsis

For some people falling in love was a happy, glowing experience. For Briar Kelly and Arrow Donovan it was more like getting hit by a freight train.

Caring for one another was never an easy feat. They constantly fought to hold their feelings inside, not wanting to jeopardize their friendship. Then, Arrow left for the Marines, and everything changed. Briar was shattered. Arrow was hurt.

While Briar told herself she’d never let another man affect her in such a way, Arrow still remained in the forefront of her mind. For Arrow, his memories of Briar kept him alive in both of his near death experiences. When Arrow’s demons threatened to drag him under, Briar was there, pulling him from the darkness.

“What ifs” keep piling up while resentment and redemption battles continue; will Briar and Arrow be able to find their happily ever after, or will this be one war that Arrow can’t win?

Review:

What If, written by Bayli Lane is a love story of two people who adore each other, but each allow live obstacles to separate them.  At times I wanted to strangle the both of them because they were so stubborn with holding their feelings in.

Briar and Arrow meet each other in high school.  Arrow starts dating her best friend, and Briar is hurt.  As high school progresses both hold in their feelings, and for Briar her feelings of saving herself for the one she loves is lost.

After high school, Arrow joins the army and starts dating his first experience girl (Lacey).  Briar is devastated.  At Arrow boot camp Arrow is all over Lacey, and Briar leaves deciding to move on with her life.  I can tell you that when I read the part about graduation I wanted to scream.  Lacey knew that Briar was there and put in the moves to Arrow to chase Briar away.

While reading What If I questioned how those two people were going to have there HEA.  Both of them went off not knowing how the other really feel.  And for Arrow, I was so worried that he would go off to war with the knowledge that he would never have his girl.  Other the other hand, Briar followed his lead and Arrow should have just gone with his instinct and told her how he felt.

I won’t go into the details of some of the story except to tell you that there is no cliff hanger.

Part of the element that made this story a 4 star story is the characters.  Bayli Lane really knew how to write the characters to where you either loved them or loathed them.  She also allowed you into the minds of the main characters.  You always knew why they made certain decisions.  In addition, you could feel the pain coming off the character when they hurt.

Also, the story neither felt rushed nor drawn out.  It was perfect on how Arrow and Briar’s story went through a progression.

I do recommend What If for romance buffs.

~Synopsis~

Captain Alan Silvestri is a man haunted by a strange curse. Good luck is his to command, but it comes at the cost of any place to call home or people to reckon as family. Resigned to die and shunned by all, he is forced to sail every three days, until he begins to dream of a special woman. Treated by our youth-oriented society as invisible and sexless, Emily Pawes is ready to move on with life. She attends a pirate festival, hoping to recapture the make-believe magic she knew as a young woman. Lucky to win an interesting bit of booty at a brick-a-brac stand, she finds herself transported by the Kraken’s mirror through a magical portal to a land of Hollywood piratitude, where swashbuckling heroes own iPods. With little choice, Emily embraces the madness. Playing pirate has to be safer than falling into the arms of handsome Captain Silvestri, right? When they meet, sparks fly, passion flares. He needs her to be free, but more than that, he needs her to be whole. Setting sail and uncertain of who actually controls the wheel, they seek ways to defeat his curse of good luck and discover the Kraken’s mirror has plans for them. Will Emily stay in this pirate haven to fight alongside him or will he lose her because of his curse?

Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Grey photo 19065715_zpsb156c0d4.jpg
Title: Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Gray

Author: Riley J. Ford

Genre: An Erotic Romance Parody/Romantic Comedy

Published Date: February 10, 2013

~Synopsis~

What happens when you try 50 Shades in the REAL world?

 

When accountant Ben Weaver awakens after an erotic dream, he encounters a wife who is unwilling, uninterested, and who once again has a headache. The unworldly but focused Ben decides he will do anything to rekindle his sex life, including imitating the erotic techniques of billionaire Christian Grey from the Fifty Shades series. Unable to withstand the pent-up ache radiating from his tender blue testicles, Ben decides to take Grey’s methods to a whole new level in order to relieve the pressure on his . . . er, marriage.

Shocked by her husband’s unusual plan, Kate Weaver hesitates in giving him what he desires. But for all his trappings of non-success–his ordinary accounting job where coworkers steal his sandwiches and brag about their sex lives, his lack of wealth, his inability to seduce his own wife–Ben is a man with one saving talent: the driving determination to reignite his sex life no matter what it takes. When the couple embarks on a daring and dangerous physical adventure, Kate discovers her husband’s fanatical zeal to explore all of Christian Grey’s darkest desires, with calamitous results.

Erotic, hilarious, and highly disturbing, Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Grey is a spin-off that will titillate you, amuse you, and stay with you until the next erotic romance crosses your Kindle.

Eternal Ever After photo 18891482_zpse80b7939.jpg
Spice Box Title: Eternal Ever After (Ever After #1)

Author: A.C. James

Genre: Paranormal Romance Erotica

Published Date: April 3, 2014

~Synposis~

His past holds a secret…

Arie Cush has a secret that he thought he’d left behind. When his past follows him to Chicago he must protect someone that reminds him of all the painful memories he’s tried so hard to forget. But when every touch from her sets his heart and body on fire–he finds it hard to maintain his aloof façade.

…that becomes her nightmare.

Holly Ellis has secrets of her own. An encounter with the handsome stranger who frequents her coffee shop reveals a vampire with baggage. Even though it might be more than she bargained for, she can’t resist the one person who understands her. But her life is in danger and a supernatural threat could reveal the underground world of vampires to humankind in this Gothic Cinderella re-telling.

Heat Level: This book is a steamy romance. It’s the development of a romantic relationship that contains more explicit language and sex. The sex is not an inherent part of the story, character growth, or relationship development, and if removed you still have an amazing plot.

Warning: This book is fictitious. The bdsm portrayed in this story does not portray the lifestyle. Vampires will be vampires. They don’t exactly stop to discuss a scene, pain thresholds, and there is no aftercare involved. Trust is an intrinsic part of the lifestyle. Use due diligence and research before deciding to make fiction into reality.

That she will forever be his Cherry Girl…

Goodreads for Cherry Girl

Review:

I absolutely loved Cherry Girl.  It is a beautiful love story, filled with love that goes through stages to a perfect finale.  I enjoyed how Raine Miller divided up the book.  It is separated into three parts.  The first part is in Elaina POV.  The second part is in Neil’s POV.  The third part of the book being in mixed POV.  That made the book very enjoyable.

Elaina first meets Neil at 10 years old.  He is her brother’s best friend, and becomes part of the family.  Even at that young of age she is attracted to him.  Time goes and the two age become closer than ever.  Elaina feels that she will never have him.  Tragedy occurs to the family, and Elaine is lost.  That is until Neil shows her a side that she has never seen.  But HEA never come easy, and that is true for Neil and Elaina.

Part of the story that was so sensual was how much Neil endeared Elaina.  Elaina was his Cherry Girl.  He always felt that she represented blossoms from a cherry tree.    Neil is the perfect book boyfriend.

The story progresses with such finesse that I was left with a huge sigh after the Epilogue.  The characters dialogue was epic.  I loved how Ethan gave Neil a run for his money.  Neil definitely deserved the ribbing that he received.

I have enjoyed Raine Miller’s books, and Cherry Girl is at the top of the list for me.

Long ago, the first vampire was born from the love of the goddess Macaria, the daughter of Hades, God of the Underworld, and Navarus, the human male who fell in love with her.

Standing in their way are the Sons of Navarus, eight vampire warriors chosen by the Order of Macaria to protect the way of life vampires have enjoyed for thousands of years and defeat the Archons when the day Idolas prophesied came true.

That time has come and for the eight Sons of Navarus, this war will test all their strength and courage. They must unlock the secrets of the Prophecy of Idolas to defeat the Archons or perish in trying for none of their kind can be safe if the Archons win this battle.

~ Book Synopsis ~

It was 1995 in the Southern California wasteland.

 

I was barely legal and far from innocent. I loved the Gun Club more than I loved Walter, my high school sweetheart. He was the only person who knew why I stopped singing and playing guitar after what happened to me when I was 16. But even an engagement ring couldn’t save us after what he did to me that one afternoon.

 

I used to worry that college would come between us, but I never thought it would happen on move-in day.

 

That was the day I met Franz : a tall, handsome 23-year-old ex-jock from Germany. He was so not my type, but the more I got to know him, the more I knew he was the right guy for me. And after Walter betrayed me for the last time, it was time for me to break up with him and be with Franz for good. I never thought he’d be a safe place for me to explore my darkest sexual fantasies. Nor that he’d be a kindred spirit who knew exactly what it felt like when someone ridiculed your musical aspirations.

 

We gonna start playing music together and be who were meant to be. Nothing and no one was gonna stop us.

 

Not even Walter.

 

Review:

I want to first of all state that I wanted to spend more time writing this review.  Randi Black truly deserves to have a review that will let the readers understand the process of how I came up with a 3 STAR rating.  I want you readers to see the characters as I finally saw them.

When I first started reading The Light of the World I must admit I had some confusions and I am ashamed I was a tad bit biased towards the characters.  Some of the plot had me desiring for some clarification, and I hoped that I would get it in the end.  I also predetermined my like/dislike of the character initially based upon first reaction to reading each character.

Before writing this review, I got up at 3 a.m. Thursday Morning and decided to reread the book.  I took a piece of construction paper and drew a line marking it plot line.  At the same time as I read I started drawing out character maps.  I wanted to fully understand each character that I read about.  I needed to go into this without judgement and bias.

After drawing a plot line and character map, I determined there were three key points that made me give this story a firm 3 STAR rating.

First,  I needed the identify with the heroine.  The first time I read the story I thought she was weak and passive.  Then when I went through and highlighted the components I could tell she was more complex than I thought.  Here was a young woman who experienced horrific events that I would never wish upon my worst enemy.  When I realized who she was at first was actually a lost soul.  I believed as the story progressed she could find meaning in her life with her college friends, especially Franz.  In the end I found her to be strong and heroic.

Second point.  When I drew the plot line of the story I could see how each action of the character involved changed the plot line in some way.  From the heroine’s parents to her new friends at college.  All of this shaped the story line in some way.  It did make for more of a progressing and complex plot line.  I even saw where whining Walter fit in the story.

Third point.  I saw where music became a focal point to healing for the heroine.  I have always heard that music heals the soul, and it especially did for her.  It brought her closer to Franz, and to fixing her battered heart, and that I especially enjoyed.

This is my first book that I read by Randi Black, and I look forward to more of her work.  So if you want a book that sears the soul, than The Light of the World is for you.

About Love, Tussles, And Takedowns (Cactus Creek #3):

He’s a better fighter

Hudson Reyes has been a fighter for longer than he cares to remember, with enough scars to last several lifetimes. After his combat injuries retire him from the life he wasn’t ready to give up yet, Hudson forces himself back on his feet, building a new post-military career as a fight scene and weapons specialist in the film industry, spending his carbon copy days doing what he knows best: surviving. Until he meets her. The one woman that makes him want to live again. The one woman with hidden wounds as deep as his…and a wicked roundhouse kick that almost knocks him out the day he finally learns her name.

…but she has all the weapons.

An antique arms authenticator by day and a self-defense instructor by night, Liana Lin has made a living turning the unthinkable demons of her past into the passions that fuel, and fill, her life. So when the unjustly handsome man she’s been unable to get out of her head literally takes her to the mat with fighting styles unlike anything she’s ever seen—all while pinning her with a molten hot stare that promises things she won’t even let herself imagine, Lia makes damn sure the barbed wire fence around her heart is closed up tight. Because if one man could find a way to disarm her carefully-built defenses, it’d be him.

Now if only they could stop sparring long enough to find out…

Excerpt

“Used to be, I could handle a combat weapon with the kind of speed and precision that guys in my unit were gladly willing to trade their left nut for.” A hard edge darkened his expression for a brief moment before fading, softening when his gaze fell on her face again. “After the explosion, discovering that I wouldn’t ever have that level of fine motor control in my trigger hand again, or that I wouldn’t ever be able to fully process the feel of a weapon because of the nerve damage in my other hand…that just about destroyed me.”

He slid his hand over her skin gently. “But this—ˮ

She gasped, gripped the sheets to keep herself grounded mentally, emotionally. To keep her silly heart from acknowledging the fact that he was shattering her defenses with that one simple touch, owning her with the intense, single-minded focus his eyes held as they followed the path his fingers were tracing across her belly. Hungrily. Reverently.

“I thought that was the hardest thing I’d have to get over because of my injuries. But this right here,” he whispered, leaning down to wreck even more havoc on her senses by shadowing his touch with his words, his evil, evil lips only just barely skimming her flesh. “Not being able to do all the things I want to do to you with the pace and precision I want to with this hand…” She stopped breathing when she felt his other palm smooth up the back of her thigh. “And worse, not being able feel you fully with this one…”

“Hell, Lia. That’s killing me more than you can imagine.”

Blurb

 

Lily Blackwood is torn between two strong men…

 

One, Wallace is her perfect idea of a partner, loving, loyal and handsome. The second, Bryn, is her true mate, the man chosen for her by nature and her family. Denial and naivety for nature’s choice, sends her into a rage of independence against the laws of her own destiny, family and her own father.

 

Wallace Kirk is assigned to protect the beautiful Lily since her birth…

 

His loyalties are tearing him apart. His own mate, dead, taken from him, fills his thoughts as Lily begs for his attention. She needs him, but not as much as the wolf that prowls in her flesh.

 

Bryn Kemp’s nature and need fill his flesh…

 

Yet his true mate, the woman chosen for him, denies her destiny. His battle for her and his own pride must overcome her feisty rebellious streak. Both men must fight for her in the throes of oncoming battle and she must make the right choice. A decision that will shape the war.

 

*Author note: this book was previously published under the title Blackwood: Lily by R.L. Kirk*

 

Review:

Lily is the first in a series of The Blackwood Wolves Saga.  It is more than just about wolves.  It is about culture, vampires, and vampires with wolf in them.  It is about continuing a lineage that was dying.

Lily is a Blackwood.  Known for centuries as being the top wolf family.  Lilly cousin is an Alpha wolf.  Lilly was destined to continue her lineage, but she fought to live among humans.  The compromise was that Wallace Kirk was to be around her at all times to protect her.  Lilly’s wolf is calling for sexual hunger, and Wallace seems to have a part of the answer, but Lilly seeks more.

Killian, the Alpha male wolf leader has elected to have Bryn now cover her security detail.  There is a problem with certain Alpha females being tortured and killed.  And I mean brutally.  Bryn must protect Lilly to make sure that she doesn’t fall claim to death.

Let’s just say Lilly has to grow up know.  She knows it is her destiny to claim a mate, and being being the Alpha female she was set out to be.  Who is her elected mate though?  Is it Bryn or Wallace?

The story is action packed and full of rich detail of a land where wolves are a fading breed.  They must protect their females, and begin families to fulfill centuries of history.  The scenes can be very violently graphic, so just a warning to the weak of stomach.

I don’t really know who the next story will be about, but I believe it will be just as great as Lily.  We will keep you informed about upcoming books by Bonnie Bliss.

Review: Caught In The Storm (5 STARS) by M. Stratton Blog Tour

caught ebook

Synopsis

 

What happens when the hunter becomes the hunted?

Kat Snyder has spent years chasing after the man who attacked her and left her for dead. It is her one obsession and she won’t let anyone stand in her way. Now that they are getting closer to finding him she begins to doubt herself and her need for revenge.

Together they search for the monster who has hurt so many women. The closer they get, the closer they become, until they are both Caught in the Storm.

 

Review:

Caught In The Storm is the final story in the events that happened between a killer, and wronged man, and the victims who struggle for retribution.  If you haven’t read any of the series you need to first read After The Storm and Eye Of The Storm first.

After The Storm is Lexi’s and Noah’s story.  Lexi and Noah meet one day as Lexi is taking pictures in Noah’s garden.  Lexi has a traumatic past, and needs Noah to help push her boundaries.  But a threat is on the lose that may just ruin every chance Noah and Lexi get. After The Storm is the beginning of a thrilling novel.

Eye Of The Storm is mainly Evie’s story.  She is out to find a rapist, and a killer.  She also wants to help a man get his life back as much as possible.  Evie is Lexi’s best friend as well as confidant.

Caught In The Storm is Kat and Jackson’s story.  Kat was Lexi’s bodyguard.  Jackson is Evie’s brother, and knows a little bit about Kat’s past.  But no one knows the truth until Kat reveals to the whole group her past.  Jackson is bound and determined to help ease her suffering, and assist her in healing.  Can the killer be found before all the women become fatalities?

I can tell you that this series has been one of the most intense series that I have read.  It contains so much suspense that you are magnetized to each page.  I kept wanting to find out what was going to happen next.  And there are twists and turns that will keep you tuned until the end of the story.

If you like romance with suspense and mystery than reading M. Stratton’s series will right up you alley.  Caught In The Storm was a great finale to a series that I will read over and over.

Prologue

Jeremy Ellison sat on a dirty bed in an even dirtier motel room with his head in his hands, wondering how he ended up here. He’d had her; he was almost able to take the one thing Anthony currently wanted. After pulling himself from the water, he didn’t know what to do or where to go. This was a first for him. He’d lost everything. Everything. He had no laptop, no pictures, nowhere to go, and most importantly, no money.

Sighing, he reached over for the newspapers he had purchased, somewhere in there he’d find what he was looking for. Some old lady from the society pages who had more money than brains. Some way to make a quick buck so that he’d be able to move on to bigger and better things. It was a scam he had perfected over the years. Money and items that he could quickly sell would be his. It was what had afforded him the lifestyle he loved so much, and giving the old ladies a thrill, well, it was the least he could do.

He wanted to scream when he saw his picture and the story about him, staring back. A smaller photo of Anthony and Evie mocked him. They were coming for him; they were all coming for him. Pounding his fists on the bed, his head shook back and forth, his mouth opened in a silent scream.

~*~

She sat in the grimy motel room clutching her wig in her trembling hands, staring at the room across the parking lot where she saw him enter a while ago. She never expected to come across him after all this time. It took everything she had not to knock on the door and send the bastard straight to hell. She knew he deserved more pain and putting a bullet in him would be too quick. Now that she knew where he was, she could plan. She had to have a plan. Everything had to be in order. The ending would have to be perfect, exactly what he deserved.

Her hands shook as she thought of what she’d have to do to him, but she hadn’t come this far to back out now.

Glancing at her watch, she knew she had to hurry, she wanted to get back to her files on Jeremy. Now that she knew exactly where he was she needed to make sure everything was up to date and she had all the information on him. Slowly she put the wig back on and walked out of the room into the sunlight. She casually dropped her purse near his car where she attached a tracking device. Picking up her things, she put them back in her purse, then stood up and walked away, never looking back.

Synopsis:

History brought them together. Circumstances may them apart.

 

Alyson Blake’s past left her with scars. Scars that she tried to fix the only way she knew how—by helping others. But actions have consequences, and Alyson is about to find out that being naïve is no excuse.

 

Fighting is Jamison Weston’s passion. Alyson is his obsession. Despite the past and a few lingering concerns, their relationship is as solid as ever. Until a shocking lie is uncovered and all of his plans begin to unravel. Now, Jami is rushing to pick up the pieces, but as relationships are put to the test, will he be strong enough to keep it together, or will it all just fall apart?

 

Meet the Author:

Best selling author J.C. Valentine is the alter-ego of Brandi Salazar, whose enjoyment of tales of romance spurred her to branch out and create her own.

 

She lives in the Northwest with her husband, their wild children, and far too many pets. As a university student, she studies literature, which goes well with her dream of becoming an editor. Brandi entertains a number of hobbies including reading and photography, but her first love is writing fiction-in all its forms.

Synopsis:

Everything I Shouldn’t

 

It’s been eight days, sixteen hours and forty-seven minutes since life as I know it ended. I know, it sounds so melodramatic and teen-soap worthy, but it’s the truth. Eight days, sixteen hours and forty-seven minutes since David found out. Since he kicked Jeremy out, ended their friendship and told me I could never see him again.

 

I didn’t plan on David getting suspicious, and I definitely didn’t plan on getting caught. My selfishness has cost Jeremy everything, my brother won’t even look at me, Lyric must hate me for practically blackmailing her to keep silent and my best friend is barely speaking to me.

 

Now my life is full of secrets and lies. The people around me have been affected by the choices I’ve made and the lies I’ve told. But what will they do when they discover the biggest secret of them all?

 

Jeremy is everything I shouldn’t want, and the person I can’t live without

Never Wanted More (Nashville Nights #0.5)

 

Originally released as part of the Southern Seduction Box Set

 

Peyton Williams is spoiled, entitled and a little too stuck up. The daughter of an influential Mayor and a socialite mother, she’s trying to get through college and make her own path. She’s perfectly happy being a loner until Spring semester when she gets not only a roommate, but a math tutor.

 

Wyatt Parker is the boy from the wrong side of town. Known as the son of the town tramp, he jumps at the scholarship to play basketball in Nashville where no one knows his roots. Spending this semester tutoring a friend’s snobby roommate wasn’t what he envisioned, but Peyton quickly gets under his skin.

 

Peyton never wanted more until she met Wyatt, but is she willing to be what he needs?

About Stacey

S. Mosteller

Stacey is a wife, reader, author and mother to 3 boys, ages 15, 14, and 8 – not necessarily in that order! After spending the first half of her life in a small town outside of Philadelphia, PA, her parents moved to another small town in North Carolina. She married her husband after dating a total of three months and knowing each other for six! People thought they were crazy, but 2014 marks their 10 year anniversary, so it obviously worked out! She loves to read and can usually be found curled up with her iPad when she’s supposed to be writing or creating playlists on Spotify!
